The terms upoa which ths leaders of the United Mine Workers of Amc ic h?.vc ordered a resumption of work in the coal mines ale practically the same as those pro posed by Dr. Garfield. The wage increase is identical, and that proposal included the creation of a board for the con sideration of tho coal industry and the adjustment of the consideration of the coal industry and th adjustment of the conditions upon ah equitable basis. There was this im portant difference, however, a difference that no doubt led to acceptance of the President's proposal, that instead of a permanent body wHbse action might be deferred to an indefinite future,, a commission ia to be appointed imme diately to investigate the industry, "consider further ques tions of wages and working conditions, as well as profits of operators and proper prices of coal," with power to re adjust both wages and prices, such commission to make its report within sixty days if possible. This intuured to the miners quick action, and it will not interfere with the creation of a permanent board for the industry and the collection of continuous official information upon wihch future adjustments can be based. It is not to be doubted, also, that the President's statement had considerable in fluence in effecting the decision. Whatever the considerations that induced the accept ance of this proposal there is reason for public congrat ulation in the fact that it puts an end to an Intolerable state of affairs, assuming, of course, that the miners obey their leaders and resume work, and in the further fact that this has been accomplished without sacrificing the position the government had taken upon this question. The min ers will resume work at the increase of 14 per cent fixed by Dr. Garfield, and the operators will not be permitted to increase their charges to the public because of this increase. What may be the result of the work of the com mission to be appointed remains to be seen, but the point of supreme importance now is the fact that the public interest is first to be served. That public interest cannot be ignored in the permanent settlement and now that its influence has so conspicuously triumphed in this contest we may feel fairly sure that it will not tie again defied. The rights of the public are paramount and must and shall be maintained. But on the other hand it is of very great importance that the coal industry be placed upon a different and bet ter iasis. The miners were wrong in the manner of their action, but they have just grievances which should be rem- edied. They have claimed very vigorously that the oper ators were making immense profits, in which they were entitled to share. As a basis for justice both to them and to the public, as well as to the operators if their denial of these claims is supported by the facts, this matter should be cleared up by the investigation. But more im portant is the permanent equalization of production in the industry. This is a subject we have discussed a number of times and it seems plain that no settlement can be made that will be more than a temporary adjustment unless the production of coal ia changed from a seasonal or emer gency output to a continuous industry, furnishing year- around employment at fair wages. This cannot be accom plished by the miners or the operators. It will require an organized co-operation of the government and the rail roads with the public, to encourage buying and distribu Uon of coal during the summer months. There should be a special coal rate during the dull months, and an abun. dant supply of cars would be available for transport tion. With lower prices for coal during that season, the public, impressed as it is with the importance of accumu lated stocks of coal, could be induced to acquire the habit of summer buying and thereby give to the industry the stability and certainty it now lacks. With the ending of this strike we are inclined to think that the industrial situation in the United States is on the way to an adjustment that will insure relatively stable conditions for the future. With certain principles now established, with the supremacy of the public interest as sured, there should be no more great national disturb ances, and industrial differences may be composed upon a basis of fairness to all concerned.

Look through the files from 1865 to 1875. Propaganda is something that people, spread when they are discontented with the usual result of making matters worse than they were before. Emperor William that was still refers to himself as "his majesty." Germany may consider that he took that sort of thing with him when he emigrated..

"pony dirigible" is soon "to be on the market" in which one can make forty miles an hour without worrying about the moni-present depestrian. Eventually the aerial ve hide that is fallproof will be evolved, one that will stay in the air no matter what happens to it so long as its driver so wills. It may become unmanageable, but will continue to float until rescuers go aloft and tow it back to earth. In that day we shall be ready to take flight. We wel come the occasion when we shall rise above the terrain and our hair will not rise at the same time. We suppose one can overcome the preturbation that accompanies this finding himself in a high place looking down; and will not have the qualms one gets by peeping over the "edge of a skyscraper. All that may be a mere matter of habit as some thing that seasickness and immunity from it it Anyhow, if it startles you to look down, don't look. When long, long ago the law to enforce punishment for murder was passed, the paragraphers indulged in no such witty and humorous remarks about it as the bone-dry law. That shows they took it seriously. Silver is now quoted at $1.30 an ounce that ia to say, an ounce of silver bullion is now equivalent in value of two pounds of bacon. But in the day3 when silver touch ed 50 cents an our- an ounce of it would get two pounds of hacon, two dozen eggs and a pound of country butter. So it hasn't done so much. By NINA BANCROFT (United Press Staff Correspondent.) LONDON. (By Mail.). These be weird and wonderful days and you never know whether the man in the store ia there to sell you socks or save your soul Our parsons are giving up the church as a livelihood and taking up positions as salesmen. Their anxiety for our spiritual welfare hovers in the background as a "hobby." ' One is really nervous these days to walk up and ask for a pair of silk stockings. Maybe that nice-looking young assistant behind the counter will preach you a short sermon on the stockings' unrighteousness and send you away clutching a parcel of home-knitted-woolens which you'll . never wear, or making vows of eternal homespun which you'll never keep. - t's very difficult Of course, it's not that we don't like parsons we just dote on them in the pulpit but the people don't pay enough to keep them there. And it Is harrawing to think that some of those curates who tell you such soulful things every Sunday should not have the where withal to. keep the home fires burning. s. There is a serious outbreak of trouseritis among women. The men blamethis on to the fact that somebody once said trousers were "daring," and now women find them an ever recurring temptation. Certain it is that wherever women are permitted to don basic bifucations you seek in vain for a skirt At all the recent fancy-dress balls, in the newest reviews and the latest frocks women go trousered, there fore happy. At the victory ball girls were dress ed either in Eastern costume, as pier rots, little boys, or strange futurist things of which you couldn't recog nize the character but noticed it was bitten by the trouseritis germ. Men bewail it, and are trying to effect a cure by pointing out that trousers are the most modest things ever invented. In these times women have no hes itation in confessing their true age Every day some fair young thing lets in the light of day as regards the length of her horrible past. Thirty has no fears for her, thirty-five is ac knowledged with a smile, and the once senile forties are rapped out without a blush. On bended knee men are pleading with them to be more mystic. They crave the allurement of unfathomable secrets. "You insist on introducing us to your shoulders and your backs but, for the love of Mike keep a bit of chiffon round your age!" they say. This, combined with the jazz bands accounts for the slump in wedding bells. The love-bug finds it impossible to bite a man who's jumping to synco pations of the "jazz." So now balls are arranged with a waltz or two thrown in here and there to give Cu pid a look im The matchmaking mamma has lots of advice to give to her daughter "My dear, when Lord Shirkitt i$ks you for a dance, be sure to make i waltz. Don't dance any of those sil ly fox-trot or one-step things with him, for he's the nicest young man in London and has a bigger bank ac count than anyone I know." And the dutiful daughter spend? an unhappy but tense evening in the dressing room, listening through all the ragtime monstrosities for the wel come, uplifting, strains of the dreamy waltz. Then she floata into the dancing ring. Shirkitt floats out of single blessedness.

Much has been said and written about the conjunction of some of the planets that is to take place the sev enteenth of this month.
