After thoroughly investigating the
prices of coal in various sections of
the country, the President has fixed
a rate for each section which is
supposed to be equitable. The Penn-
sylvania rate is fixed at $2 per ton
for mine run and $1.75 for screenings
or slack.
With $1 per ton for mining, togeth-
er with royalty, loading, ete, it seems
very improbable that the operators
can be depended upon to pay very
| much tax on excess profits.

Officer Cramer brought the accused
in for a hearing, when he cinfessed
that he made the promise, that he
recollected it distinetly but that as he

that another could be made just as

James Jones, of Baltimore, was
arrested by Constable Cramer last
week and haled before Judge Hay.
Now the narrative reads like fiction,
only the heroine does not appear to
secure James’ release.
James, along with others of Afri-
can descent, was residing in the mon-
ument city, happily and contented,
when a labor agent alluringly
told a tale of wealth to be secured at
Sand Patch by working in a section
gang for the B. & O. James and
his brother, in a fateful hour, bit at
the bait and when they landed, found
they were to replace some men who
were on a strike. Being of a sensi-
tive nature, and the weather being
hot, they could not relish the idea of
being called “scabs” and refused to
go to work.
They then went to Johnstown and
on their return James was arrested
on a charge of carrying concealed
weapons. When given a hearing he
stated that his brother had given
him the gun to carry about fifteen
minutes before his arrest. The
Magistrate agreed to let him depart :
in peace if he would deposit 25 iron
men for use of the commonwealth
and pay the costs. This being more
lucre than James was seized with or
possessed of at that time, he parted
with his weapon and the Justice, and,
with Constable Cramer, left for Som-
erset where he awaits the next ses-
sion of the assizes.
