WASHINGTON, D. C June 24.
(Special.) The coal strike, almost
forgotton by the public until the
Woody outbreaks in Illinois and
West Virginia brought It forcibly
to mind, has resulted during the 12
weeks of its life in cutting down
available stock piles to within 12,-OOO.O-OO
tons of tne danger line, .ac
cording to reports to the geological
survey and the department of com
merce. These agencies estimated
that the industries of the country
can continue operations at their
present rate for about four weeks
more, and will then have to curtail
operations to a basis of four or five
days a week, generally because of
the approaching coal shortage,
now regarded as certain.
The Oust pinch has 'been felt al
ready by manufacturers in New
Jersey, acoonding to reports to the
eanployment service of the depart
ment ol labor. In, that state, ac
cording to reports, employers al
ready have been compelled to cur
tail their operation's somewhat be
cause of th-e fuel scarcity.
Anthracite Mines Slowed Down.
Figures of the geological survey
elbow that elnce the beginning of
the coal year, April 1, anthracite
indues lhav produced only a few
thousand tons of coal. During that
period they usually mine, on the
average, about 20,000,050 tons, or
nearly one-c.ua.rter of the year's re
quirements. The anthracite mines
have only 40 weeks In, which to mine
the customary 52 weeks' supply. Go
ing at top capacity, with full work-tag-
force and a full car supply, the
geological survey figures show they
cannot perform the task because ol
In. the bituminous industry, non
union miners are working at a rate
never equalled before. They are
producing between, five million and
six million tons a week. Last
Wednesday, when a total of 17,000
carloads was exceeded, was the
greatest producing day ever at
tained in those fields. This week's
non-undon production, it is esti
mated, will approximate 6,600,000
tons the highest on, record. That
tonnage compares with a weekly
consumption of between 8,000,000
and 8,500,000 tons.
Purchases Are Delayed.
The situation in the bituminous
industry is remarkable, as it pre
sents a situation never paralleled by
It before. With the prospect of an
almost certain shortage, industrial
coal consumers are delaying their
purchases until the new freight
rates go into effect, July 1, and for
other reasons. There are 300,000 tons
of coal on hand now at Hampton
Roads, clogging the transportation
facilities, awaiting the day when
rates go dpwn. Then it will begin
to move to New England. In addi
tion there are 300,000 tons more on
the way to Hampton Roads.
In Alabama there is so much non
union coal on hand that the bottom
is reported to have dropped out of
the market. The interstate com
merce commission's recent order
permitting Alabama coal to travel
into the Chicago market' at a com
petitive f reight rate with West Vir
ginia coal has brought thousands of
tons of coal north, but the Birming
ham market is still overloaded. The
northwest is reported to have ob
tained about 6,000,000 tons via the
Lakes about the normal movement
thus far in the season and New
England apparently is holding off
for the lower rates, markets there
being comparatively quiet.
Transportation Is Difficatt.
Transportation difficulties have
beset the non-union fields of South
west Virginia and Eastern Ken
tucky this week, and about 1,000,
000 cars of production has been lost
therefrom. The railroads in, these
sections have been overburdened
with traffic recently. This week it

to handle them. The sltuationJiaw.
ever, is being smoothed out.
Extremely active markets were
reported in the middle west, with
buyers reported eager for good
grades with an Insufficiency of sup
ply. Geological survey estimates Placed
coal stocks at about 63,000,000 tons
of bituminous on April 1. Since
that time the stock piles have been
rediuoed at the rate of about 3,500,-
000 tons a week, the survev est!
mated, that figure representing the
difference between consumption and
Safety Zone Threatened,
Allowing for 10,000,000 to 15,000.-

the survey estimated that the stock
pile has been reduced to about 32,
000,000 tons, or by considerably
more than 50 per cent. Minimum of
safety stocks are placed by the bu
reau at about 20,000,000 tons.
While industrial distress has been
averted thus far, officials are some
what apprehensive for the coming
two weeks. They anticipate a gen
eral rush of orders after July 1,
when freight rates drop 10 per cent
They are prepared to assist consum
ers in buying coal; in fact, the de
partment of commerce is rendering
such assistance actively at this time
but is certain that at the present
rates of non-union production, which
is nearing the limit, there soon will
be an insufficient supply to go
round. Meantime there is little
prospect for early strike settlement.
Business generally shows little
change except for the tendency to
hesitate because of the coal situa
tion. Were it not for that factor,
progress toward greater prosperity
would be uninterrupted.

velt's statement which he had read.
He stressed- the loyalty which citi
zens of Portland owe to the educa
tional advantages here and pointed
oat that there must be no lagging
in this duty on the part of anyone.
Great Opportunity Cited.
"In this school, named in behalf
of one whose memory, and acts shai!
live as long as time endures, the
baptism of Americanism which will
never leave their souls or hearts
will be given to the children of this
community," he said. .
Pointing out the great opportu
nity which has been opened for ex
pansion and needed improvements
through the bond measure and tax
levy passed recently by the voters,
Mr. Woodward said that for eight
years the Portland schools had
lagged behind, but that that was all
history now. He likewise empha
sized the importance of the people
taking an active interest in school
"The schools are a legacy, your
property, and are under the direc
tion of all the people," he said. "You
and all others are the partners in
this mighty task of giving to our
children an education."
Complimenting the people of St.
Johns community upon their loyalty
in school matters Mr. Woodward
recalled the magnificent act of
James John, pioneer citizen of the
community, after whom the little
city was named, whose gift was
the first substantial one to be made
to further educational progress in
Portland schools. Simon Benson
was the second donor to this cause.
Franklin High Is Copied.
The new Roosevelt school is an
exact replica of the Franklin high
school building. It was pointed out
by the school directors that the spe
cifications and plans of the Frank
lin school were used at a saving
over what new ones would have cost.
The new building will be of 24
rooms and will be built to accom
modate 1200 pupils.
Not only will the new school ab
sorb the former pupils of James
John high school in St. Johns, but
it will likewise accommodate the
surplus from Jefferson high school
and many from Lincoln high, who
will ferry across at St. Johns from
the west side of the river. The
enrollment in James John high
school this year was 400. Jefferson
high school, built to accommodate
1200 pupils, had an attendance of
more than 2000, and it is expected
that the entire building will be used
to capacity at its opening.
Side Walls Already Erected.
The side walls for the structure
which is of brick construction are
already in and every, effort will be
put forth to get the building finished
in time for' the opening day of
school, September 5. The grounds
contain 15 acres. Five acres 1 are
taken up by the school building.
The 10-acre tract adjoining the
building will be fitted up for an
athletic field representing the larg
est level recreation ground in use
by any of the Portland high schools.
The new high school building is
not located on a paved street and
an effort is being made to have the
street paved as soon as possible. The
figures at the school offices show
that there are more than 20 of
Portland's school buildings which
are not on paved streets which are
said to be a decided disadvantage
in reaching the buildings with any
kind of fire machines in case of fire.
The new Roosevelt bulding, taking
the place of the James John high
school as it does, will not increase
the number of high school buildings
in the city. There are five of the
classical high schools, the two poly
technic schools and the high school
of commerce, bringing the total
number up to eight.

"I am eighty-three years old and I
doctored for rheumatism ever since I
came out of the army over fifty years
ago," writes J. B. Ashelman. "Like many
others, I spent money freely for so-called
cures,' and I have read about 'Uric Acid'
until I could almost taste it. 1 could
not sleep nights or walk without pain;
my hands were so sore and stiff I could
not hold a pen. But now, as if by magic,

Just as well attempt to put out a fire

by taking treatments supposed to drive

to find out this truth. He learned how
to get rid of the true cause of his rheu
matism, other disorders, and recover his
strength from "The Inner Mysteries."' a
remarkable book now being distributed
free by an authority who devoted over
twenty years to the scientific study' of
this particular trouble.
