Predict Early End
of Coal Strike
Those in Close Touch With
Fuel Situation Banking on
Return of Miners by
Chicago, July 29.(By A. P.)
Coal men throughout the middlewest
regard the bituminous strike as Hear
ing the end and express confidence
that an early resumption of union
production may be expected.
Jobbing markets today reflect this
view, which is supported by Presi
dent John L. Lewis of the United
Mine Workers, and substantiated by
the withdrawal of certain heavy con
sumers of industrial coal from the
present highly competitive markets
in the central field.
Those known to be in close touch
with the fuel situation, to some de
gree already are banking upon a re
turn of union, miners to the soft
coal pits by August 5, notwithstand
ing conflicting or indefinite retiorts
from Various quarters as to the exact
status of the strike.
News from the Philadelohia- con
ferences between President Lewis
and eastern operators is to the effect
that powerful interests have
brought great pressure to bear on
recalcitrant operators for a confer
ence with the workers' leaders. The
report of the Cleveland federal re
serve bank today declares that the
iron and steel industry is feeling the
coal shortage.', '
v A wage agreement was reached
Cincinnati last night affecting S.OTO
miners i nthe Kentucky-Tennessee
field, including 25 operations. The
agreement was reached at a meeting
of union leaders and representatives
of the operators and grants the
workers an increase of approximately
$2.50 a day. It becomes effective
August 1. Another meeting was
scheduled to be held next Tuesday
at Middelesboro, Ky., to discuss a
similar agreement for that field.
Fuel Control Machine.
Washington, July 29. All produc
ing coal mines of the country will be
given first call on railroad coal cars
as soon as the organization of the ad
ministration's emergency fuel cohtrol
machine is completed, it was an
nounced today by Secretary Hoover,
chairman of the federal coal distribu
The priorities on cars to producing
mines will be passed upon by the dis
tribution committee, Mr. Hoover said,
so that an coal may be obtained un
der the fair orices agreed upon to
prevent profiteering. The commerce
secretary said it would then be up to
the states to maintain prices within
their boundaries by the prevention of
resales and profiteering.
Mr. Hoover plans to make public
soon proposals being sent to all of the
states for the organization of local
fuel control bodies.. The federal plan,

he hadn't been notified he was to be

that the way to tell "friend wife" what

"Prior to your wonderful achieve
ment the echo has been the only thing
on earth that could prevent a woman
from having the last word," he wrote.
"Compared to your discovery the

Randall Has Lead
of 886 in Returns
From All Counties
Randolph Man Safely Ahead
With Complete Count Sent
in by Telegraph to As
Official returns telegraphed to the
Associated Tress from every county
in the state gave Charles H. Randall
Randolph 49,507 votes for the re
publican gubernatorial nomination, as
compared to 48,621 for Adam Mc-
Mullcn of Beatrice, Mr. Randall's
It is not believed the official fig
ures given by telegraph will vary
greatly from those mailed by the
various counties to the secretary of
state at Lincoln, as there was very
little difference in the unofficial vote
as reported county by county by the
Associated lJress shortly alter the re
cent primary, and the official vote
reported today. The possibility, how
ever, of small errors in telegraphic
transmission is involved, but ooliti'
cians who have watched the progress
of this hotly fought contest do not
think such mistakes, if any, can ma
terially change th? standing of the
candidates. ' ; .
The race between Mr. Randall and
Mr. McMullen was unusual in that
it was so closelv run that it reauired
nearly every one of the state's 1,913
precincts to determine which of them
was ahead. For a time during the
progress or the unofficial vote only
one and two votes separated the two.
The small difference between the
votes for the two is illustrated by the
official returns by telegraph from
each county in the state, as follows:

The body of William H. Helm, 57,

and is said to have been the owner of
considerable property in St. Joseph,

Mistake in Identity.
John Helm, 1321 South Twenty

estranged from his uncles.
After the death of William Helm,
his body was taken in charge by the

the death of "John" Helm;
They disdained a reply, and the
body was delivered to the university
Then John Helm was seen walk
ing on the streets of Omaha and the
uncles received a letter from a friend
asking "How come?"
Vernon Helm rushed to Omaha to
investigate and Police Officer Al Sin
clair untangled the mixup.
"But we have been unable 'to learn
why he went to the county farm,"
Vernon Helm said. "He had lived
several years in St. Joseph and ac
