Charging that President Harding had
broken faith with the striking shop
men in his efforts to settle the rail
road troubles. Timothy Healy, inter
national president of the stationary
firemen, today called him "that great
big wall flower in the White House"
in a speech before the convention of
New York state federation of labor.
He referred to Chief Justice Taft as
a man "who couldn't get a job as
constable or dog catcher in any elec
tion anywhere in the United States."
The president, said Mr. Healy, af
ter making his first peace proposi
tion asking the carriers to take back
the strikers with seniority unim
paired promised a committee of un
ion men that "he would use the big
stick" to make the railroads accept.
Instead, the labor leader said, "the
other fellow used the big stick on the
president, who,' when his proposal
was turned down by the carriers, of
fered a second suggestion that the
men be taken back and the matter of
seniority left to the labor board to

Plain Profiteering Price is
Raised $1.25 Per Ton.
Springfield, 111., Aug. 24. Coal
mine operators in central Illinois to
day announced they had increased
the price of coal $1.25 a ton. The
raise was followed by a protest from
sub-district officials of the United
Mine Workers, who termed the in
crease "legalized robbery" and de
clared it called for a statement from
the mine workers.
Miners have returned to work un
der the same wages and conditions
Secretary John Watt of the sub-district
said. "There has been small
loss to either miners or operators,
because of the great quantity of coal
stored and the fact that mines would
i have laid idle whether or not there
i had been a strike the operators
cannot with good grace lay their in
crease in prices to the loss they bear.
It is just plain profiteering."
; strong. The government has taken no
steps to stop it, has passed no laws
i for the purpose and so in a way en
courages it. The operators are com-
i ing back on the public for losses they
have not suffered. There should be
some recourse, but there is not.
"None of the increase will come
to the miners. It will all stay in the
pockets of the operators."
Mines about Springfield advised
retail dealers todav that the price of
coal had been raised from $3.7" to
$5.00 a ton. Retailers announced
they had only passed the increase on.

SELF C0NTE0LING SEAPLANE
Washington, Aug. 24. A new
type of seaplane which is almost cap
able of flying without a pilot has
been delivered to the navy depart
ment. The plane, designed for the
training of student aviators, com
bined safety features never before
equalled in aircraft, navy officers
said, with qualities of speed and ma
neuver ability. It recently made a
successful seven hundred mile flight
from the factory at Ogdenburg, N.
"In testing the plane for stability,
the pilot released the controls, tak
ing his hands and feet off them,"
said Commander T. G. Ellison of the
bureau of aeronautics, who brought
the craft to Washington.
"The throttle was cut to low speed
and the plane went into a long glide.
He then speeded up the engine and
still without the controls being
touched, the plane leveled off and
continued in normal flight, making
about 60 knots.
"Finaiiy the engine was speeded
up with the throttle wide open. The
plane began to climb and in so doing
her ppeed was cut to about forty
knots. She fell off on one wing anil
dove until a speed of 100 knots was
registered when the plain again
leveled off in normal flight. Dur
ing the entire demonstration the
pilot, Lieutenant Nielsen, did not
touch the control with either his feet
or his hands."

Border Runners in the Northwest
Face Serious Situation Still
Some Get Away With It.
In the days jiiF;t gone by, war fur
nished most of the conflict for mov
ing pictures, but now it is "bootleg
pint;." In Metropolitan districts the bus
iness of catering to America's thirst
is strictly a commercial proposition
and involves no great risk, but up
around the Canadian border it is dif
ferent. There the trade has a -tinge
of romance and is loaded with dan
cer. When a nan starts across the
Canadian border with a truckload of
"hooch." there is more than formal
itv in his cood-bve to his family.
Citv policemen are good fellows
and all that but when a man is fac
ing the Northwest Mounted he is
flirting with death.
This state 'of affairs is vividly
brought out in the Selznick picture,
"Channing of the Northwest." which
will be Fhown at the Movie Garden
Friday and Saturday nights.
Eugene O'Brien is starred and
plays the title role, which, is the
best he has had in many a long day.
His transformation from a Piccadil
ly rounder to a hard fighting mem
ber of the "mounted" is a wonderful
piece of work and it is doubtful if
anvone has ever so skillfully por
trayed the makinsr of one of those
famous guardians of the Northwest.
Of course there is a girl in the
story; two, in fact. One a member
of the- internationally famous Gaiety
choru?. played by Nita Naldi, and
the other a product of the North
woods, plaved by Norma Shearer.
Channing chose the later after the
former had. so to speak, given him
the air. However, this choice ne
cessitated a great deal of battling
with a certain Jim Franey who had
desires all his own.
Channing won out, of course, but
