mknowletlRed. both by operators and

the- coal miner' union, that much
will depend upon the attitude of the
put. lie toward the strike e all the
union coal miner, order for which
lave already hern given, wherchy
tlirf miner are to strike March 31.
Yrt there are ome fact respect
ing u-liiili good information ha been
obtained and these refer chiefly to
t lie economic aspect which have
characterized coal mining, especially
since the beginning of the European
war. In a detailed atatement which
wa made this morning by Thoma
II. U'atkin. who i identified with
the bitutninon coal mining industry
of western Pennsylvania, attention
i called to the great economic
rhangc in the coal mining industry
which have taken place since 1914.
Mr. Wat kin v. a recognized a long
go a 102 by the government a a
competent authority, for he wa
selected a one of the member of
the anthracite coal commission, a
commission which was secured by
President Roosevelt and which con
tained a hiKhly competent member

Incresee In tho Kate paid to the miner.
TlJt already so-called collective bargain
ing had broken down or wn beginning lo
brk down and waa finally abandoned In
117. At thai tlma tha miner mad de
manja which the operator., particularly
In what la called Ih. ccnlral eonipeiitlv
M.trlrt. which Include Illlnola, Indiana,
nhlo and western Pennsylvania, were ub
willlng to grant. Thereupon appeal waa
mail to the government by tha miner,
and It wa successful because the federal
fuel rommlninner granted them practical'
ly all they asked for, which wa an In
rree of (0 per rent In wax... with flv
Hay work a week at all hour a day.
That agreement waa to contlnua for three
year or to tha termination of tha war.
That federal authority waa ended at the
doe of tha war.
Keen Competition Felt.
The operator of bitumlnom mine In
the central competitive dUUtlct discovered
In the mid year of the war that com
petition which In many place wa suc
cessful had been begun by the operator
who controlled the nonunion bituminous
mine, all of which are aouth of the Ohio
rivar. The., operator had made agree
ment with their nonunion mployes not
only for a considerable reduction in wage
but also for a greater number of working
hour for each week than the union min
er wore willing to accept. Therefore,
notwithstanding the high railroad ratrs
and other obstacle., the operator of the
nonunion mine, were able to enter domes
tto market which theretofore had been
controlled by the operators of the union
mine and to undersell the union opera
tor. They were gradually getting com
mand of a larger number of markets.
Thla i a condition which did not prevail
prior to 1914, but it did change the Issue
completely so far a the union operator
They claimed that unless they were
able to secure a ( reduction of wages
equivalent to the rate which prevailed In
the nonunion mines they were In danger
of los'nv more and more of their mar
Vet. Furthermore, the operators ob
served that many union miner were eek
tng and getting employment on the open
shop basis In the nonunion mines; for,
although the rate of wages atill maintained
in the union mines, waa high, neverthe
less the union miners ometimes spoke of
these a phanton wages being high on
paper, but of no avail when the dinner
pall wa considered. In other word the
high wages, together with the competi
tion of the nonunion mines, compelled a
gradual reduction of work at the union
mines o that in time there was great
falling off in employment.
Contract Is Broken.
Thl new economic issue is chiefly the
basis for the allepred refusal of the
operators to obey the terms of the con
tract which was entered into before the
nonunion competition become successful.
That contract pledged the operators to
3oin with representatives of the union
organisations in holding a conference be
fore April, 1923, at which the new de
mands of the miners were to be consid
ered. But it was the understanding of the
operators that these new demands in
cluded a large" Increase In wages, five days
work and no more than six hours each
tay. The operators felt that in view of
the successful competition by the non
union mines It would be Impossible to
enter Into a contract with the union min
er upon the terms which they would de
mand. Therefore, the operators have
neglected to call the conference, frankly
giving as the reason that no contract of
the kind the miners demanded could by
any possibility be entered Into.
Injunction Offer Complications,
There I another feature of the issue
which he caused the ordered strike of
the union miners which offers one of
the most peculiar complications hereto
fore discovered in any controversy -between
employer and employes. The fed
eral courts have enjoined the unions in
respect to certain matters and federal
grand Juries have indicted leaders of the
unions charging, them with having vio
lated the federal laws by entering Into
a conspiracy for restraint of trade. And
yet the very accusations upon which the
indictments are based are now reflected
In the demnads which some of the lead
ers of the miners' union have made. Ap
parently they have Ignored the fact that
they are asking the operators to agree
to a contract which federal grand Juries
have asserted would be illegal er else
these leaders expect that nothing will
come of these Indictment.
In 1918, at a convention held by rep
resentatives of union miners, a resolution
waa adopted which set forth that the
miners should "have the full social value
of their products." That ahort line at
tracted no public attention at the time,
hut now the apprehension is that It meant
eomething like communistic control of
the mines. The suspicion Is that the
underlying purpose of the leaders of the
unions Is ultimately to nationalise the
American coal mines up a communistic
basis. That apprehension may not be
justified by the fact, although some
of the union leaders are far more radios!
than they were eight years ago. But it
is a sincere apprehension and it will be
of Influence In reaching any agreement
by means of which the bituminous and
anthracite coal mine which are worked
by unions will resume work. If they
c.n nationalize the mines they will in
time, It is feared, be able to nationallie

This information, the tirst to he
sought in the accumulation of agri
cultural statistics, later .will be used
r.s a basis for determining the num
ber and kinds of breeds of registered
livestock, according to Mr. Stuhr.
Because such a report will involve a
great amount of detail and the mini
mum amount of space available on
the assessors' books, the assessors
ari not asked to specify breeds in
Seek Hay Acreage.
Two other new features are in
cluded in instructions to assessors
this year. The number of acres of
alfalfa, sweet clover and red clover
seed as well as hay acreages of al
falfa, sweet clover, red clover tim
othy and timothy and clover, will be
compiled. In the case of the seeds,
at: effort is being made to obtain
the number of acres which were cut
for seed, as distinguished from those
clovers for use as hay.
Statistics gathered by the assessors
for agricultural statistics are not for
taxation purposes, it is pointed out,
but the law requires that, assessors
must obtain this information at a
penalty of forfeiting salary for their
service. The returns, are required to

of agriculture by July 1.
. Stress Ownership.
Instructions to the assessors also
lay stress upon differentiatinp; be
tween acres owned and rented and
acres leased for cash or on a share
basis. Under the caption of "num
ber of acres owned," the assessors
are requested to list the number of
acres of occupied farm on which the
operator pays rent, all land operated
by managers, but no land that is not
operated by occupant. Land, leased
to other operators will be listed by
them as rented land, according to
In listing the number of acres
rented from others, the assessors
will list the total number of acres
occupant rents from others,, and not
the acres leased to others.
Instructions in obtaining statis
tics on other crops and farm equip
ment are unchanged.

pany balance sheets for 1M2I, and
Rood news with a prospective qual
ity, such as rising grain prices, easier
money anil increasing steel trade
activity. Of last week's unfavorable
news, particularly the reduction of
Northern l'acific dividend and the
passage of the soldiers' bonus bill in
the bouse, it might be said that this
time it had to do more with the
future than with the past.
Hut on the other hand, it was
news which had been entirclv ev-
pected. For weeks no one has looked
for anything but a sweeping house
of representatives majority for the
bonus bill; the real point of discus
sion was the subsequent attitude of
the senate and the president.
Cut In Dividend Vneipeeted.
When the Northern Tarifln dlvlrienj rale
'am- down from 7 per cent to i l.st
Wednesday, the action was commonly
aesrrllied as unexpei ted. But a mart
In which a 7 per tint stork sells at S4
(which Is Northern Pacific' hlBhext price
thus far In 1922) In making a pretty plain
prediction that the 7 per cent dividend
would not bo long- maintained. On the
whole, the directors' action has been re
ceived In financial circles with composure,
fcven Wail street Is not o Inerpcrionecd
as to approve the paying; of high unearn
ed dividends out of aurplua when the rail
way situation Is still obscure. As to the
general fact which caused the decision
for a lower rate, those have long been
known to every one.
The two strongly favorable incidents
of the week were the fall of the rate on
merchants loans to the lowest figure tlnce
1917, and the unmislakablo tiulckpning of
activity In the steel trade. The low
money rata was a matter of Importance,
not alone because of Its prospective
influence on trade conditions, but
because of its immediate Influence on the
Aid to Kuropean Kecorerr.
It is impossible to emphasize too strong
ly the fact that a broad market for in
vestment securities, old and new, at good
price and at reasonable rates of inter
est, was an indispensable preliminary to
Europe's economlo revival. M'hat It has
meant already may bo judged from the
fact that not only has our market re
lieved the French Investor from the bur
den of financing the French cities, de
partments and railways, but that both
London and New Tork are lending to
Czecho-Slovakia showing what is possible
even for a middle Kuropean state which
makes serious efforts at balancing Its
budget and controlling paper inflation.
Of the gradual but continuous recovery
in steel production, the essential fact Is
that one must go back to the last months
of 1920 in order to find a time when the
Industry as a whole was working at as
high rate as that of the past week.

compared with a heavy run latt year,
amounting to 173 car. Total lili
menu were light at 103 cars and,
compared with the heavy departures
of 221 cars a year ago. While Liv
erpool was quoted lower this morn
ing on wheat, advices from that mar
ket were of a more optimistic na
ture, saying that while oftcrins
were liberal from Manitoba and Ar
gentine, shipments thiv week from
Australia were much liKhtcr. that of
ferings of corn were liberal and de
mand poor. Indications this morn
ing were that exporters were after
corn, oats and barley in our markets.
Buenos Ayrcs cable says first new
corn shipped to Holland.
Our local cash market was a slow
affair, buyers and sellers not getting
together readily. There was a fair
demand for wheat on a basis, but
holders were unwilling; to part with
their cash wheat at these lower
prices and the offerings went at gen
erally 2 cents lower. There was a
good demand for corn. Kansas
City and St. Louis were buyers In
this market. Trobably for export
sales of this cereal were made at 'Ac
