GANG ISKOT FELONY
Judge Defines Difference Be
tween renames ror Ls
Should a prisoner at the state peni
tentiary attempt to escape while con
fined within the walls of the institu
tion, he would be guilty of a felony.
But should he be a trusty working on
the outside, or working in a flax field
and escape or attempt to escape, he
has not committed the crime of felony
This ruling was handed down this
morning by Judge Percy Kelly when
the grand jury asked instructions in a
supposed John Doe case, where the
prisoner is supposed to have escaped
while acting as a trusty on the outside
i of the prison. Under Judge Kelly' rul
ing, the grand jury failed to indict S.

"Salem's Most Conscientious Business House"
Washington (Special) A combina
tion among bituminous coal operators
to maintain or fix prices does not exist
and would be Impossible if attempted.
J. D. A. Morrow, vice president of the
National Coal association, told the -I
senate subcommittee in its first day's
inquiry here into the coal situation.
Prices at the mine, Mr. Morrow added,
have declined under the competition
which prevails and are lower now
than they were a year ago.
"There are about 5,000 separate com
mercial producers operating approxi
mately seven thousand mines, from
which bituminous coal is regularly
shipped," Mr. Morrow said. "In addi
tion there are some two thousand
operators with about three thousand
mines, who begin producing and sell
ing coal whenever the price goes up
a little and offers a profit to them.
Many Sourest of Supply Available.
' "Such a condition obviously does not
lend itself to restrictive combinations
"Anyone who alleges that there is a
nationwide combination among bitu-
Tiinuous coal producers when these
are the conditions of bituminous coal
production and distribution, merely
advertises his own ignorance or con
victs himself of deliberate and vicious
'Of the five thousand separate bitu-
mtnous coal producers in the United
States, 2,294, or approximately 45 per
cent, hold membership in the National
Coal association. They produce about
SO per cent of the total output of bitu
minous coal in the country.
"Charges that the National Coal as
sociation is a combination to maintain
prices are without foundation In fact;
they doubtless 1 proceed simply from
Ignorance of its purpose and activities.
The National Coal association neither
buys nor sells coal; neither does it
have anything whatsoever to do with
the prices which its members ask or
sell at, ner with the territory into
which! Jhey ship their coal, nor the
quantity which they produce." '
Prices Have Declined Since Armistice.
Mr. Morrow stated that bituminous
coal prices have declined since the
armistice, and in general are lower
than the prices fixed by the United
btates Fuel administration. He sub
mitted charts to the committee graphi- I
calty showing the prices at which bitu
minous coal sold at the mines in differ
ent districts of the United States from
April 1 to August 1, 1919. In connec
tion with these charts, Mr. Morrow ex
plained that when the price restric
tions of the Fuel administration were
removed on February 1 last, rhn
better, more desirable coals went to a
premium in the open competitive
market and the less desirable coals lie-
clined in price.
This was the action to be expected.
he said, in a market where the buyer
exercises his choice and can ohtain
the kind he prefers. As a result in
stead of the uniform prices in differ
ent districts, which were fixed by the
United States Fuel administration,
prices promptly spread out, some coal
going higher and some lower than they
Cost of Production Higher.
'Meantime." Mr. Morrow said. "Tho
cost of producing bituminous coal is
nigner now than it was a year ago,
due to the fact that the mines then
were operating six days a week and Iti
many cases now are operating onlv
four days per week, and in some cases
oniy three days per week. The over
head expense of maintainina mines
goes on lust the same wheath fir pnnl
is produced or not. These idle-day ex
penses have resulted in increased cost
per ton, as compared with last vnr
When these inoreased costs are con
sidered in connection with the general
lecrense in prices, it is clear thnt
profits of bitumiiiMu coal operators
are materially less than a year ago."
neierring to statements bv Reun
(tentative ; Huddleston of Alahnnm
rirector;General Mines of the Railroai'
administration ana others to the effect
that bituminous coal prices at the
mines are unduly high, Mr. Morrow
Foregln Mine Price Compared. -
"I wish to deny publicly and em
phatically these allegations that bitu
minous coal prices are being main
tained in mme Imnrnnpr' mmnor n ,i
I are unduly high. I am convinced that
tnese statements proceed simply from
a lack of understanding of the facts."
Mr. Morrow, drew comparisons be
tween the prices of bituminous coals
at the mines in the United States and
foreign countries. - ' . .
