Action to satisfy demands for domestii, coal in various states was taken yesterday' by the interstate commerce commis-curs for other freight casceled, but an ' erst of Montana, Wyoming, Colorado and New .Mexico to fursish coal cars t(." mines in preference to any other use. Former orders of this;!nrycter apjdied only to roads east of the : .Mississippi river.

Not Enough Coal to Meet Needs Working in conjunction with coal operators and railroads, a program has been formulated, the eommissnm stiid, which is expected substantially to relieve domestic coal needs. After October 14, preferential car supply for public institutions will be at forded only upon approval of the commission. Despite an increase in coal production, which up to September 2.5, exceeded that of last year by 51,000,000 tons, the commission said, "there had not been a sufficient production of the sizes of coal for domestic purposes to satisfy the present demand. Didn't Reach Domestic Consumers Complaints have been received bom Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Oklahoma, Texas and other Western states, the commission said, and added: "The increased production has been consumed in a large part by industries, by railroad and other public utilities, by the, Northwest, by New England and bv exportation. It is imperative that the production of coal be even further increased. To accomplish this it will he, necessary to increase the car supply for coal.'

Leaders of the Sinn Fein have intimated that, although they desire complete separation of Ireland from England, they would not oppose a broad meararq of dominion home rule if it can be proved a majority of the Irish people demand it, says the Daily Mail. , ' This intimation, the newspaper declares, was given in response to .approaches made by the Irish Peace Council,; a body of moderates from all parts of Ireland which has just completed a plan for dominion home rule in the. island. , , ' Prior to adjournment of parliament, members of this council inters viewed Prcsiicr Lloyd Gccrjc, -wia Jtold them that before submitting any scheme, they must be ajde to assure him of sufficient support in Irelanli , to guarantee that the scheme would be workable. This support the c6un- j cil claims to have obtained, and the Mail asserts the premier will receive deputation from the organization next week to take the initial step in the scheme. The first thing that will be dose, the newspaper says, will be the creation of a constituent assemb - Iy for Ireland, in which l ister will be given representation.
