Chicago, June 30. The business of
the country enters the last half of
the year July 1, with good prospects.
The present promise for generous
harvest, the low price of credit,
gradual expansion of industry and
dwindling unemployment augur for
steady progress toward prosperity.
The monthly reviews of banking in
stitutions and the midweek commer
cial reviews comment optimistically
on the general situation.
"The half year just ended brought
a distinct advance in business, with
nost of the gain in confidence and
actual transactions achieved during
the second quarter," K. G. Dun &
Co. say. "Despite various drawbacks,
recovery from previous depression
has been substan lal, if highly ir
regulr. Many inte:v.:. will -be more
active this summer, than was antici
pated. There is clearly more work
to be done this year and shutdowns
will be less general and extended."
Officials of the United States treas
ury say the business situation
throughout the country is considered
satisfactory, in spite of the coal
strike and threats of some disturb
ances in the transportation field. The
federal reserve board reports retail
trade of department, grocery, drug,
tobacco and shoe stores in the last
three months has been better than
the average month of 1919.
Improvement in the middle west is
reflected in the record of Chicago
bank clearings. Clearings for June
increased about $375,000,000 over
June, 1921, but were slightly less
than in May, this year, which was
the high month since December,
1920. For the first half of this year,
clearings increased nearly $493,000,
000 over the corresponding period
in 1921.- June clearings aggregated
$2,481,274,663 and for the first half
of the year totaled $13,578,099,386.
Rail Earnings Increase.
Railroad and telephone earnings
also attest the expanding tendency
in business. Earnings reported for
May by 53 railroads show total op
erating income of $43,779,783, com
pared with $24,599,276. for May,
1921, an increase of nearly 78 per
cent. According to these figures,
net operating income for. all class 1
roads for May is- estimated at about
$65,600,000, equivalent to a return of
4.20 per cent on the Interstate Com
merce commission's tentative valua
tion of $18,000,000,000.
Reports of 72 telephone companies
for April show operating income of
$10,454,418, an increase of nearly 4
per cent over May, 1921. For the
first four months of this year, oper
ating income totaled $40,435,543, an
increase of more than 13 per cent
over the corresponding period in

Charleston, W. Va., June 30. Two
companies of the national guard were
sent into the Cabin Creek and Paint

Residents of Dry Branch reported

However, a midnight call for the
members of the two local companies
of the guard was sent out.- The men
were routed from their beds and
