' The regulation ha*, a double-barrel- ed Objeoflve'.; first, it Is designed to discourage the applications for increased power and improved • channel assignments by creating a new eco- nomlc factor In radio. Secondly, It will, In large-measure, do away with • the 1 existing situation of stations run- hlrig ou*t bf bounds by unlawfully "s'tepplhg up the Juice" of their "trans* \ witters beyond that licensed. \ > Heretofore there have been no regu- *"lattons goVeifhlngt the power output of -•^ "transWltters Installed, regardless of the licensed power'. There are scores ' • tff low-powered stations which have ' Installed transmitters of high power, but profess only to use their licensed amount of "Juice." But some of these Stations are trying to use to advan- , tags the fact that they have these high-powered outfits, On the ground •> that their financial Investment Justifies It, they are Applying every day for ,v'jjncreased power, arguing that they '*' have the facilities and should be allowed to tose them. The effect of the new order, how: «ver, should discourage these applications, the commission reasons. The order prescribes that/hereafter, stations with power up to 100 watts shall have equipment of that top output. Those using 280 watts during the day only can Install transmitters of that order of power. In* the next class, or that Of "regional" stations, the maximum power will be 1,000 watts. Stations In this category . use power at night ranging r from 2Bd to 1,000 watts. Those using from 2,600 to 5,000 watts will be allowed transmitters of the latter output. Cleared channel, or high-powered stations, using 5,000 watts or more, . 'up to -the present maximum of 50,000 watts, sh»U have maximum power which corresponds .to Its licensed power. That is a 6,000 watts shall use a 8,000 set,' Although the order is not retroac- tlyfe, it . should have complete effect In Vthree years. Transmitting ' equipment becomes obsolete in about that length of time, It Is estimated by the commission, and when now equip- y went is installed, the law, specifies that a permit' be obtained from the commission. In the "power pirating" phase the order should put an abrupt stop to ' It, the commission believes. . MARTIN i>.

LITTLE CHANGE IN COALJONDITIONS Production In the Central Pennsylvania v Field on Abctut the Same Basis as During April. Conditions in the central ^Pennsyl- vanla bituminoun coal field have continued on about the same basis dur-' ing the present month as in, April. The loadings > are about the same, r having been 42.004 -cars to the 24th, as compared with 48,078 cars to the same date in April. The loadings last week were 12,175'cars, as against 12,083 c&rs the week o'f May. 24. •' The mines'as a rule are working three or four days a ,week. There has been a considerable absorption of mine workers in .farm and highway work during the spring. Some of the mon seek such employment for the days when there Is nothing to do about the mines. . • The general policy of, the .jjajlroada In buying, locomotive 'fuel'td .shift from low to high volatile coal has had ah-adverse effect on the central Pennsylvania neld, to the advantage of other fields and as a result the miners miist seek an outlet for their output in other directions. Many of the large consumers are rather slow this year- in making contracts, relying on the spot mark"et because of the low prices that have prevailed during the spring. It is pointed out that' later they may find the terms less satisfactory to themselves. Ol.l>, CANOE FOUND.

NEGRO ATTORNEY BRAINS BEHIND IMPORTANT CASE ' .. . / WASHINOTON, D. C., May 28.—A Negro attorney, William H. Lewis, re- vea.led today as the brains behind the legal move which foiled the government's attempt to prosecute the buyer of bootleg liquor. ' Lewis, who played center on the Harvard football -team In 1891 when he was taking a law degree there, was counsel for James B. Farrar, Boston motorman, whom the government tried to prosecute for buying two pints of liquor from a bootlegger. -, Lewis won . the case in a Massachusetts district court, and was finally victorious when,"' the supreme court held a-Significant decision, that the government could not punish Farrar—or anybody else—under the Volstead act for buying liquofr, , The Farrar caise, far-reaching as it was in consequences, was Just another case for the Bostori Negro'lawyer. He has had a distinguished career, which included ';two years here In the Taft administration as an assistant attorney general, • Lewis does not look his 62 years. He was born in Norfolk; Va., three years after the end of the.Clvll war.
