COAL SHORTAGE AGAIN SERIOUS * • - •* Results in Complete Re-Establishment of Preferential Lists • by Hines. RAILROADS GIVEN PREFERENCE CALL EXPRESS STRIKE Walkout in Chicago Is in Defiance of Union Chiefs. : : Director General Recalls Old Lists Used for Division of Coal During War by the United States Fuel Administration. Washington, March 6.—A coal shortage estimated lii the neighborhood of 50,000,000 tons resulted in ,the complete re-establishment of. preferential lists by Director General "of Hallways Walker D: N Hiues. Acting under the powers, conferred upon liim by tne president under executive orders Issued February 23 and March 5 Director Hlnes ordered that all producers and shippers give preference In the shipment of bituminous coal as follows: - : ; 1. Railroads. 2.—Army and. navy, together with other departments of the federal government. 3.—State and county departments and institutions. • . 4.—Public- utilities. 5.—Retail dealers. After this preferential list, manufacturers engaged In turning out necessaries are ; to be allowed coal. Because of the severe weather conditions diversion "of coal to Xew Engj water will, be-continued, it being found Impossible to transport sufficient amounts to that section by rail. Old ^Preferential Lists. The preferential lists recalled Int.r> being by Director'Hines' order are the old lists used for diversion of coal during tfie war by the United States fuel administration. Director Hines also appointed committees, designated with powers of his personal representatives to place the diversion of coal according to the preferential lists immediately into effect. The directors of these committees will be: G. N. Snyder, chairman eastern regional coal committee, with headquarters at New York. W. T. LaMoure, chairman, and James T. Storrow, vice chairman. New England committee: H. A. Worcester, chairman, Ohio and Indiana committee; P. G. Findley, chairman, Detroit committee; B. H. Bissell, chairman Cleveland committee; Samuel Porcher. chairman, Allegheny toali committee, with headquarters at Philadelphia: S. F. Spengler, chairman, Pocahontas coal committee, with headquarters at Roanoke, Va. The sweeping action of the director general was necessitated, it was explained, by the number of urgent representations received from public utilities, schools, industries and domestic consumers that they are unable to purchase coal to meet immediate and pressing needs and that they will have to cease operations unless they can se- curo adequate supplies promptly. 3o alarming has the situation become that Director Hlnes 'was compelled to call upon President Wilson for additional powers in dealing with the serious shortage. These powers were: promptly granted by the president in an executive order amplifying his order of February 28, which continued with Director Hines the powers of coal distribution, even after the railroads had passed from government control. "Diversions at Minimum. In instructions sent out the coal committees named Director Hines points out that they are to exercise diversions of coal only in cases of emergency. They were instructed ,that diversions be kept at an absolute minimum and cease entirely as soon as possible. "All applicants "for coal should exhaust all possible means for securing coal through the normal channels, since the power to divert will be only exorcised in emergencies," Mr. Hines stated. In explaining the necessity for placing in effect theese orders, 'Director Hines issued the following statement: "I am advised that in the eastern section of the country, and in New England particularly, the severe weather conditions continue to inter- f fere in a large extent with railroad operations, which is materially affecting tlie movement of coal from the 1 producing sections to the consumers. The coal strike in November and December resulted in a shortage of approximately 50,000,000 tons of bituminous coal. Although, during the week .ending February 2S, 1020,10.250,000 tons of bituminous coal was produced and transported, and although the production !\nd movement of bituminous coal so far in 1920 have considerably exceeded the production and 1 movement in .the swme period in the three preceding years;- it is a fact that the demand is still considerably In. excess of the supply."

The town of. Renfrew has carried a by-law to spend $25:000 on a central heating plant tor the business section. It is erecting a new fire hall and takes advantage of the opportunity. Owen Sound is said to have a-similar scheme under consideration. This Is im avenue of small-town development that will be much more extensively traveled In the future, remarks the Toronto (Can.) Mail rind Empire. Ontario towns are usually compact, the streets used for business intersect each other, and with the advent of, modern ' heating systems'in the stores and factories, the'economic possibilities of a central heating plant are exceptionally good. Many cities.and towns in the United Strifes.-'have, adopted the system, and results have been very sdtls- factory. Instead of two dozen furnaces, two dozen"'firemen,"one big plant handled by about three men,, does the whole business. Modern Insulating methods prevent loss of steam and heat underground and the service Is. 'Usually better, than any home system. The obtaining of coal Is such a problem nowadays for the ordinary, merchant and factory opeAtor that the .putting of responsibility on a civic plant would -be a great relief; The ultimate saying, once the hentlni: equipment is Installed, ought to b« thousands of dollars n year, In many of the small Ontario towns stores are still heated by'Stoves, or-hot-atr fur- .naces, using anthracite coal. The statistics of the relative cost of steam heat cannot be made-up without consideration of local conditions, because pipe-laying, radiator Installation and plant costs vary with the size of the project, and the location of the premises to be heated. But.the innovation Is one that should commend itself to tbe notice of all town "councils. WRONG KIND OF ADVERTISING PUBLIC SALE! ..

FED AND Ragged, starving and sick, these five children were picked up by Near Easl Belief workers in Armenia. In the pitiable condition pictured these orphans were taken to one ot-the orphanages of the Near East Relief. Four are broth' ers and sisters. The boy on the right is the only sun-Ivor of his family. The second picture was taken after the hungry, terrified orphans had been Cashed, clothed and fed. They hardly know how to act in real clothes, but the picture shows the remarkable change in their faces after they have received food and been given shelter._ Th second picture was taken not nwjre than a week after the orphans had been found starving in the streets by Near East Relief workers. It is to save the lives of 250,000 such children .that the people of Illinois will be asked to assist during the Near East Relief cara- «wil£n. .... Signboard Display May Catch the Eye for a Momont, birt It Does •Not Make Friends. An important function of advertising is in creating good will'J The permanent, lasting value of an advertising campaign Is in the good will it cruates.

If the Information received Is correct, various garden clubs have already protested against the use of signboards by florists, which shows "the way the wind blows" regarding public sentiment.

NOTICE OF REPUBLICAN PRIMARY ELECTION "** Have an Eye to the Future. It is,common in a good many cities to find a street originally laid out tr» come to an abrupt end for a block, after which the street .Is continued. No doubt ; the "founders never dreamed that more and wider streets would be necessary, and thought thnt in. laying them out they were/anticipatlng all possible road expansion for hundreds of years to come. Where such streets, by continuing them through the block, would create au outlet for additional traffic, thereby eliminating congestion and confusion, the property owners, as well as city and' government officials, should take additional steps. to rectify It.
