advisory board of the Brotherhood

Deploring "attempt at government
by injunction," as a means of set

speaking for 85,000 members, de
clared injunction proceedings would
make conditions! worse "and defer,
if not defeat, a peaceful settlement."
The-board stood out for an in

Its statement, the only formal one
bearing on the strike issued here
during the day, was considered a di
rect outgrowth of the miners' walk
out and was prepared after full and
careful consideration of all ques
tions leading up to the break be
tween operators and mine workers.
The government's next mqve in
the effort to keep the country sup
plied with fuel will depend upon
what happens in the coal fields to
morrow. " I
Cheered by Reports.
'-Attorney General Falmer Wd his
associates, were cheered tpday by
confidential reports, which; were said
to' show" a tendency in 'sorhe dis
tricts to' call off the strike. Some
locals were asserted to be making
efforts to this end. In other places,
however, the miners were reoorted
-apparently determined to stay out
until their demands were granted.
In a general way the confidential
reports were along the same lines
as press dispatches, showing that
the union miners, almost to a man,
had quit, while in the nonunion
Lmines work i went on without ap
With all strike benefits cut off by
the court, officials believe the min

Profiteers to Suffer.
The Department of Justice is just
as determined to arrest and prose
cute to the limit coal dealers who
take advantage of critical" times to
profiteer as it is to deal with repre
sentatives of the radical element
who try to stir up trouble jsmong
the miners. -. .
This determination was reflected
in correspondence, made public to
day in which Attorney General Pal
mer administered sharp rebuke to"
W. A. Marshall, president of the
Wholesale Coal Trade association
of New York, who protested against
any interference by the government
with coal prices or -supplies. Mr.
Palmer declared the government
was acting solely for the benefit 'of
the public and that the coal dealers
ought to be willing to co-operate hi
such a national emergency "even to
the extent of sacrificing tprofits."
Some officials said tonight that it
might not be possibte to size up the
situation for several days, but the
general belief was that the next 48
hours would disclose a "back-to-the-mines"
' tendency openly confirming
the confidential reports.

Profiteers Called ,
"Meanest of Thieves"
By Baptist Parson
New York, Nov! 2. Baptist
churches throughout the country
were urged to spurn money offered
ty profiteers, "the meanest kind of
thieves," in a statement issued by
Rev. Dr. Samuel Zane Batten, sec
retary of social service education
for the American Baptist Publica
tion society. (
"Every Baptist church should
know whether any of its members
are engaged inthis nefarious busi
ness of profiteering," said Dr. Batten.-
"The church should refuse to
touch the dirty money of these peo
ple. No self-respecting church
would tolerate in its fellowship a
person known to be guilty of high
way, robbery or horse stealing, and
the sin of profiteering-is meaner,
blacker and more sinful than either
of these. The church must make the

The death by lightning of a man

Washington, Nov. 2. A sugges
tion from the Wholesale Coal Trade
association of New York that the
government should not fix a maxi
mum price for coal or interfere
with the normal course, of supplies
and demand during ' the strike
brought from' Attorney General
rPalmer todayl the vigorous asser
tion that he would take the same
action against persons enhancing
prices as he was taking against thf
union officials. ,
"The action of the government
was7 taken solely in the general pub
lic' interest," Mr. Palmer declared,
"and I shall not jiaonit it to be used
directly or indirectly for. the benefit
of the employers' side of the, con
troversy, v - V ,
W. A. Marshall, president of;the
association, wrote Mr.' Pafmer
recommending that miners who
want to work be given protection
and that coal consumers be allowed
to obtain fuel through the usual,
normal channels. He asserted with
adequate protection "Snough coal
would be produced i to meet the
emergency, that fixing a maximum
price would curtail the operators'
abilitv to meet abnormal produc
tion costs caused by the strike and
discourage theif .efforts, to r con
tinue work, thatf prjorify lists would
overstock certain consumers and
allow others to go without, and
that the fuel control act could be
used to prevent attempts at pro
fiteering. - Amazed at Contents.
"I am vin receipt of your letter
and am amazed by its contents,"
the attorney general replied.
"While of coursse propef protec
tion will be given to all miners who
are willing to continue at work, 'it
must.be perfectly plain to you that
even under such conditions the sup
ply of coal' must be far from nor

effect, to a declaration that coal
dealers should be permitted to take
advantage of these abnormal condi
tions and liave their prices based
entirely upon the law of supply and
demand, which is only another way
of saying that, they should be per
mitted to charge the public what
ever they please. The demand for
iuehwill be constantly increasing
and with the supply decreasing, un
less there is government regulation,
prices charged to the public would
be outrageous and the 'profits ac
cruing to dealers unreasonable. You
ought to be quite as willing as other
citizens to co-operate in the genera!
