States into the Lord Milner evoked
a tremendous outburst from those
at the luncheon when he said:
"I feel that your country and
mine are now united something far
stronger than any written pact or
alilance, namely, by an adequate
unity of motives and aim."
Viscount Milner's speech obvious
ly was an answer to the peace talk
which has been filtering from Ger
man in past weeks. He declared
that it was the intention of the
entente allies to pursue "unfalter
ingly and resolutely to the end"
their crusade, so that the "world
shall be a better place to live in
than before a world dominated by
other law than the law of the

"Our war aim is this: That the

Washington, Sept. 30. Govern
ment control over the coal industry
was made complete tonight by an
order of Fuel Administrator Gar

coal and coke dealers throughout the
country. The order, effective tomor
raw, directs retailers to fix' their re

of such gross margins during the
year 1915, plus a maximum. of 30
per cent of the 1915 jnargin, pro

gin averaged during the month of
July this year be exceeded.

in every dollar's worth.,
Dr. Garfield selected 1915 as a nor
mal year because the coal shortage
which resulted in continued rises in
prices did not begin until 1916. The
additional 30 per cent is allowed to
cover the increase in the retailer's
cost of doing business, which has in
creased substantially during the last
two years. Prices already fixed by
the government for coal at the mouth
of the mine are near those charged
in 1915, and with the jobber's chartre
now limited to 25 cents a ton and
the cost of transportation not ma
terially increased, the consumer, in
every community, should be able to
gret coal of any description at a very
small advance over the price which
he paid tn 1915.
