In his Inaugural address to the All
India Nationalist congress yester
day, C. R. Das, president of the
congress, x declared ' that swaraj
(self-rule) was the most important
question of the day, and the only.
method for securing it was by non
violent non-cooperation.
He pointed out that History re
peatedly had proved the futility of
revolution engineered by violence
which only defeated the cause-of
freedom. He emphasised the im
portance of India's participatioon
in a great Asiatic federation, which
he said would r enlace the Pan-
Islamic movement and constitute
a union of Asia's oppressed nation

Urbana. 111. The last statistics
leathered relative to the use of
mules' and locomotives in under
ground mine haulage show that in
1921 mules hauled less tnan one-
tenth as much coal over main lines
as did locomotives, according to a
study made at theengineering ex
periment station of the university
of Illinois. The investigators were
H. H. Stoeck, J. R. Fleming, and A.
J. Hoskin.
"The superiority of locomotives
over mules for main haulage be
came fully evident to Illinois coal
operators about 15 years ago," they
said. "Mules bandied their maxi
mum annual tonnage ' on main
roada in 1907. Since that year,
there has been a general diminu
tion of this mure haulage with a
'simultaneous increase in the an
nual tonnage handled on main
roads bV locomotives. Data indi
cate that mule haulage is nearly
3.5 times as dangerous as locomo
tive haulagev when computed from
the standpoint of tonnage handled.
