Bill to Halt Proteering in Coal Is Passed Contiamed fom First I'nBe. coal shortage and could conceivably result in the destruction of any pri-, vate business which did not come within a list misnamed as essential industries. Fact Finding Bill Called Up. Senator Boran immediately called up the fact-finding bill, the second administration bill to deal with the situation growing out of the coal strike. The Senate was in a fair way to complete action on it when a discussion arose; over the section which called upon the cimmission authorized to Investigate the coal industry to consider the. advisability of a nationalization of the coal mines. This precipitated a long debate in which Senators Dial. Stahley and Myers charged that it savored of .placing the Senate in a position of 'favoring nationalization, and furthermore, that it was not within the real purposes of the proposed investigation. Senator Borah offered several amendments to his bill to create a fact-finding commission to bring it within the terms of , the agreements reached between "the anthracite operators and miners. These were adopted. One provided that the commission should make a separate report on the hard coal industry and conditions surrounding it. The other- required that this report should be presented to Congress before JuTy 1, 1923. Two Amendments Defeated. Amendments presented by Senator Dial of South Carolina, to have the inquiry made by the Federal Trade Commission and to confine the com mission to not more than three members of one political party, were defeated. His third amendment to eliminate the section indicating sub jects to be considered caused the long discussion which was in progress when the Senate adjourned. The 'section objected td provides that the commission shall submit recommendations upon standardizing the mines upon the basis of theirs economic productive capacity and regarding the closing down of mines which, by reason of their natural limitations, or other condi tions, fall below the stjfiard. Plot to Burn R?uad Bridges Allsd Found OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLA.. Spt. 7. A. P.) With the arrest of four men in connection with the burning of a bridge on the Chicago. Rock Island and PaciSc Railroad, south of El Reno, Ok!a.. on August 17.

'Flying Parson And 3 Others Killed at Fair Continued from First rape. the Hudson with L. Wilson Bertraud, another noted flyer, and Miss Helen Virginia Lent, and while in the air made tlu.rn man and wffc. When the United States went to war with Germany, Maynard vas a student in the Wake Forest The ological Seminary, a Baptist institution at Raleigh, N. C. At commencement time in June he nen( into the Army, , enlisting as a private, and soon was sent overseas.' Chief Test Pilot in A. E. F. In the aviation service he rapidly advanced and was commissioned a lieutenant. He showed such aptitude for the air that , ho was designated a reserve military aviator, a coveted distinction, and -shortly afterwards was atpo;nt-u ci-.;ef test pilot il the 'big air base -f the A. E. F., at Romorantin, France. There, in that dangerous capacity, he flew hun dreds of machines of every type. While at Romorantin he trained public note by setting; a world's loop-the-loop record, turning over SIS times without losing altitude'. Coining heme after 17 months in Francs, Maynard was made chief test pilot at Hazelhurst Field, Long Island. ! In August, 1919, he won the Nw Tork to Toronto and return air derby, speeding over the 1,040-mile cpurse at an average rate of 133.8 miles an hour. Two months later he won the round-trip transcontinental derby, in which 64 of the crack avi ators of the nation . were ' entered. His elapsed time was 9 days 4 hours 26 minutes and 5 seconds, and his flying time about 49 hours and 43 minutes. Transcontinental Flight. Since, his discharge about 18 months ago, Maynard had been in commercial aerial photography work, living in Queens Borough with his wife and four children, who were at home when news of the tragic fall at Rutland came today. Maynard's time in the air on the transcontinental flight was bettered by Lieut. Alexander Pearson who actually flew only 48 hours and 14 minutes, but he required much longer to get back to the place from where he had started than did the "Flying Parson." With his mechanic and Trbtie, his pet Belgian police dog. in the cockpit of Liberty-motored De Ha viland,. Maynard soared away from Mineola Field on the morning of. October 8, 1919, and soon had taken the lead of the 48 ships headed for the Pacific, and his speed wras greater than the 15 who left San Francisco, coming ea3t, tne same day. 1 ' Invited King to Fly. He reached Chicago that night and flew to Cheyenne the next, day. At dawn . the following morning his engine balked, in a temperature of 20 below zero, delaying the take-off until mid-day, and making it necessary, to spend another night en route to &in Francisco. While on the coast he cut Into his rest to make two yilks from the pulpits. -At San Francisco, Maynard invited the King of 'he Belgians, wi)o wa3 there viti the Queen, for a .spin over the city,, but Albert said he was sorry he couldn't go, being very busy. Then he invked May nard to lunch, but the flying parson turned the King down, telling him jthat he, too. -was a very busy man. " i The first day of hU flight baek from the Pacific, Maynard encountered six snow storms and barely dodged a mountain peak near where one of the other flyers had met death. He was forced .down by a broker-crank shaft near Omaha, landing in a Nebraska cornfield. , Recalling a newspaper story telling of the mishap to one of the other contestants in the same part of the country. Maynard telephoned to the control station at Omaha and learned that Capt. Francis was down about 10 miles away. He took the engine out of'Francis' disabled ship and with the help of farmers put In his own plane. .Then he went on to Chicago. The next stop was Cleveland. Frorr there he raced to Mineola at 12o miles an hour, there to receive i round of cheers from hundreds whQ had assembled to welcome him. Mail Pilot Injured. INDIANAPOLIS, Sept 7. Walter J. Smith of Oak Park, III., air mai pilot, was probably fatally injured ai the Indiana State Fair grounds this afternoon wnen his plane fell into a nose dive, shortly after taking oft with mail for Cleveland.

A statement from the At'orney General that the railroads will come within Federal court action if they persist in using bad order engines jnd cars. It was declared the law will be enforced against the railroads as weli as the unions. The executives will be comnelled to employ only safe rolling stock. If they tail to do so. or cannot do so, the gov rnment will take those roads over and operate them, it was officially learned. 3. An explanation from J. P. Noonan, head of the striking rail elec trical workers, that the meeting of the shop crafts policy committee in Chicago for Monday is to consider general strike matters only; It was stated at the Department of Justice that the injunction obtained af Chicago to keep the strikers from interfering with trains is merely one Of many legal steps which will be taken to guarantee transportation if the necessity arises. Operation Imperative. The most urgent need of the coun try just now, it was said, is coai. With the mines producing- the government will insist on performance by the- railroads. It will first give them protection in their effort to em ploy shopmen in spite of the strike, as provided in the restraining ordpr and by the liberal use of deputy marshals. If the railroads are unable to keep their equipment in condition, or obtain the necessary employes under these circumstances, the- government will take over those roads which fail to function, it was said. Action of this kind, it was believed, would be made first against the coal carrying lines.' Senator Borah was called to the Department of Justice today for a conierence with Attorney Genera! Daugherty on the injunction proceedings. They discussed the injunction order In detail, and while the Attorney General made no statement as to what the course of the government witji respect to the order will be. Senator Borah told him very frankly what bis opinion of certain features of the or-ier were. "My opinion of the injunction order, as given to the Attorney General is that there are provisions in it whicb are beyond the power of the court to grant and are in violation of the Constitution and do not help the government's case," Senator Borah said PITTSBURGHER PROBABLY LAST AMERICAN TO TALK TO COLLINS "Everything; Now Going- Well,' He Told Duquesne University Vice President. CHAT AT GRIFFITH BURIAL ! The Rev. Father II. J. McDermott, C. S. Sp., vice president of Duquesne University, who returned from Ireland in time to address students at the reopening of classes yesterday morning, was probably the last American to converse with Michael Collins, young Irish leader wh was successfully restoring order under the new government when he was sh6t down rrom ambush by Irish republicans. "A great funeral procession had just wound its way through 40,000 people in Dublin, bearing the body of Arthur Griffith from the pro-cathedral to Glasnevin Cemetery," said Father McDermott. "In that procession cavalry, the Irish pipers playing their dirges, police, 300 priests and the populace headed by the Dail Eireann had just paid last tribute to Griffith in his grave, when Collins turned to me and said: 'Everything is now going well. All trouble will soon be over arid 'Ireland will bi-gin her long history of peace and prosperity," "Collins spoke these words within a few feet not only of Griffith's grave, but th tombs also of Daniel O'Donnell. Charles Stewart Parnell and Isaac Butt, Irish leaders of the past. The prediction seemed near of ful evening when "America's beauty queen" will be crowned. L'nder a sparkling sun, a tidal wave of flowers carried the nation's most beautiful maidens down three miles of boardwalk this afternoon in the most spectacular rolling chair parade of ail time. ; Crowds packed along the ledges of the walk, squeezed in the windows of flanking hotels and stores, kept up a continuous cheering once King Neptune got his long retinue of splendor under way. Airplanes swooped down and showered the bowered beauties with roses and confetti. Cannon roared and even the breakers of the sea seemed to enter into the stirring spirit of the thing and pounded just a little more gaily. It was a carnival of flowers, a riot of floral and feminine beauty. Father Neptune, who is Hudson Maxim in his laboratory and drawing room, seated on a throne of roses and shimmering seaweed aid accompanied by Miss America, against whom the beauties of other cities are competing, led the long line of march. Swathed in Diaphanous Silks. After him came his court of beauty in clinging diaphanous silks, the 6S prize Aphrodites. 21 strutting and booming brass bands, two orchestras and 251 rolling chairs and floats. In the first division chairs reclined the inter-city beauties smothered in clematis, marigold, larkspur, roses, gladiolas and asters. They wore afternoon dresses of stimulating color.

"It was only the next Tuesday night Collins was shot down. At 7:30 the next evening the body, in his general's uniform, was laid in state in the City Hall of Dublin. Of the vast concourse of people that passed before the bier, it was my privilege to be the first admitted to gaze into the face of the dead who had spoken so hopefully so short a time before."

On any other day the Queen is Miss Edia Fisk of Trenton, N. J. The parade moved Mowly down the Boardwalk from Connecticut avenue to Boston avenue, a distance of three miles. At Boston avenue it turned to Atlantic avenue and came north again to Arkansas. There it disbanded.

J deducted $7,417,000 for payments required under the school code. These items follow: Vocational scboois .$l,4fi0,n00 Transportation of pupils 6OU.0.J0 Salaries of county superintendents. .3 3.S7.oiO Expenses of county superintendents.. 66,000 Salaries of assistant county superin- intennents 365.500 Kxpenses of assistant county superintendents 8.".,O0O Education of children 10,000 Reimbursing school districts for Special training 10,000 Operation and maintenance of normal .schools 2,993,000 Alterations, extensions and equipment of normals 500,000 Liquidating indebtedness of normal schools J.5,000 Extension courses for Americanization 125.000 i Total ... : $7,417,000 Deficiency in Teachers' Fund. After deducting the $7,417,000, 3Ir. Lewis found a balance of $22,583,000 to pay the teachers' salaries under, the provisions of the-Kdmonds act of 1921. This amount will fall. $2,817,010 04 short of the required sum, and Mr. Lewis says the Legislature of 1923 will have to provide this deficiency. He shows the required payments under the Edmonds act to be as follows: February 1, 1922, $8,408,336 68; August 1, 1922, $S. 408.336 68, and February 1,: 1923'. $8,583,336 6$, making a total of $25,400,010 04. Mr. Lewis says the Department of Public Instruction has estimated that the annual increase necessary to pay the increases in teachers' salaries un der the; Edmonds act is $350,000. Therefore he figures the fallowing amounts will be necessary to meet the payments from June 1, 1923, to May 31, 1925: AuRun 1, 19?3 IS.SS3 336 6S February 1, 1924 S.75S, 3;t6 63 August 1, 19:14 S.7SS.33S 68 February 1. 1J5 ,933,3i 68 Total j. .....$35,033,346 72 One Item Elirninated. The only item Mr. Lewis eliminates from his estimate of required payments under the School Code Is the $825,000 appropriated ; in 1921 to liquidate the indebtedness of normal schools. This would make the requirement for School Code payments by the Legislature of 1923. $6,592,000. He then adds to this the $35,033,346 72 necessary for teachers' salaries ;and the deficiency in salaries of $2,817,-010 04, making a total of $44,442,-356 76. The final item of $780,000 for "overhead" charges brings the required appropriation by the 1923 Legislature, if no changes are made in the system, to $45,222,356 76. Mr. Lewis arrives at the cost of superintendence by using the figures of the appropriation bill for the 1921-23 period. The amounts fol low: ' ' Salary of the superintendent of public Instruction .'. ..$ 24,000 Salary of the deputy superintendents.. 27,000 Salaries of the assistants, employes. ireneral expense, etc 605,000 Cost of circulating Pennsylvania School Journal 7,000 Salaries and expenses.

Mr. Lewis gives the appropriations for the above items by the Legis lature of 1919. Then il;? amount asked for salaries of assistants, em ployes, general expense, etc., was $380,000. This was increased $273,000 by the 1921 session. In hi3 statement.
