"Neither of these parties can
be expected to change the sys-
tem by which the few have ac-

beneficiaries of that system
and depend upon it for their
wealth and power.
"In vain, millions of people
at recent presidential elections
have shifted their votes from
one party to the other and
back again, ever hoping that
a change of administration
would bring a change of con-
ditions. Thus they have pain-
fully learned through long
years of experience the futility
of attempting to segure con-
structive legislation or any
other fundamental improve-

True, very true! And now Mr.

"go back" on all this:—as have a

Where is the sense in doing

"We resent," says the Demo-
cratic platform adopted at San
Francisco, "the unfounded re-
proaches directed against the
Democratic administration for
Slleged interference with the
freedom of the press and free-
dom of speech. No utterance
from any quarter has been as-
sailed and no publication has
been repressed which has not
been animated by treasonable
purpose and directed against the
nation's peace, order and security
in time of war." This from the
party responsible for the passage
and execution of the Espionage
Law! This from the party which
produced a Burleson in the post-
office department and a Mitchell
Palmer in the department of
justice!! This from the men who
have filled our prisons with
political offenders, and made
America a by-word and hissing
throughout the world for tyranny
and injustice!!! What is to be
said about such an utterance, ex-
cept that the Democratic party
' has solemnly resolved to add to
its other high crimes and mis-
demeanors that most despicable
sin of all—the sin of hyprocrisy?
And yet the convention had dis-

Poland also owes the United States
a considerable sum growing out of

In order to clear up some misun-
derstandings regarding the position
of the international federation of
trade unions on the Hungarian ques-
tion, the executive committee issued
the following statement:
"In connection with various re-
ports published in the pre vs intimat-
ing that the demands made upon the
Hungarian rulers by the Interna-
tional Federation of Trade Unions
could not be granted by the former
because It would signify a lowering
of the dignity of the

unequivocally against the govern-
ment miners' bill and are united in
demanding nationalization and noth-
ing short of nationalization. They
are ready for direct action as re-

have demanded the withdrawal of

absorb the $330,000,000 surplus
which would otherwise go into the

effect of lowering the cost of living

OF COAL HELD
Egyptian Roads Run With
U. S. Fuel While Home In-
dustries Go Short.
NEW YOBK The present serious
coal shortage prevailing In New
England, New York and tho east
generally has been caused by the
enormous exports of coal to all parts
of the world and by speculators who
have made enormous profits, James
J. Htorrow, state fuel administrator
of Mussnchussetts .declared in testi-
fying before the senate committee on
reconstruction and production.
One consequence of the lack of
governmental restrictions, he salo,
was that Egyptian railroads are be-
ing run by American coal while pub-
lic utilities and industries In this
country are unable to obtain the
smallest winter supply.
There Is no great Hhortage of coal
at tho mines Storrow's evidence
showed ,the report of the geological
survey setting total production of bi-
tuminous coal at 14,000.000 tons
ahead of last year and only about 1C
per cent below the record breaking
war year of 1918.
In conneotlon with high prices of
coal In New England, Htorrow *ald:
"The execessive and unrestricted
exports of coal have caused a sky-
rocking of coal prices. Probably 80
per cent of the output of the eastern
fields im being sold on contracts, most
of them probably at $4.50 or less.
The price of spot coal at the mines
1s now from $11 to $14 a ton. Coal
sold refVntly at $2 3 In Boston har-
bor. This mear.% that profits have
Incre ased on a basis, say of $11.50 a
ton, from 25 cents to $7 a ton. or an
excessive profit of 2,800 per cent. In
other words, coal operators are tak-
ing excessive profits from the Ameri-
can people at the rate of at least
$350,000,000 a year, assuming- that
only 20 per cent ot tb«• ir output Is
being sold In the spot market.
"Thousands of cars r.f coal are
being held In terminals and on sid-
ings for reconslgnmerit by specula-
tors; In fact this condition is so ser-
ious on railroads that a prominent
railroad official recently brought It
to the attention of the interstate
