Indications are that the subcommittee of miners and owners appointed to negotiate the new agreement will not complete their work before the middle of next month and the men threatened to suspend work until the pact wa** signed, unless the owners would muke any award retroactive. The reply of the owners was received at a meeting of the subcommittee. The subcommittee then adopted the following resolution; “Wheres, the negotiations now pending between the anthracite mine workers and operators may require additional time to reach a mutually satisfactory conclusion; and "Whereas, it Is to the public interest that the supply of coal be not diminished; therefore "Be it resolved, that pending conclusion of negotiations there shall be no cessation of work and that by mutual consent the working conditions of the agreement of .May 5, 1916, and the war allowances supplemental con tinned pending conclusion of negotla tions, and that whatever agreement is finally reached shall be retroactive to April I, 1*29."

Weston Allen and W. L. Jarvis, chairman, and other members of the governing committee of the exchange. The Attorney General suggested that when application is made for the listing of mining securities, the exchange might properly require that a report on the property by some qualified mining engineer be filed and another suggestion made by him was that when it is noticed that prompt deliveries of certificates are not being made, the exchange should suspend further trading in the stock until the certificates are available. Both of these suggestions were received with favor by the committee. Mr Jarvis informed the Attorney General that a number af men are selling mining stocks who are not members of the exchange. Of those arrested yesterday morning, only Mr Fitzgerald has membership in the exchange. It was also pointed out that many stocks are being sold which are not listed, although there is no way that the purchaser can learn this fact. TODAY’S GLOBE CONTENTS Page 1.

Men Are Held on Only Technical Charges *»l*eolnl Dispatch In the Globe WORCESTER, March 24—By til* arrest In Millbury today, after a sensational roundup, of Picclni VincdH-, zo, aged 26, of CheNoa st. East Boston, Joseph LeGasse, aged 26. of 17 East Central st. Worcester, and CIro Lindon, aged 27. of 30 Thorne st. Worcester, a posse of 25 State, Wcr-j teeter, Millbury and railroad police officers claim they frustrated the robbery of 110,060 from the paymaster of the Falters Company MUI, in I Millbury, and opened the way to the solution of the freight and express robberies that have cost the New England railroads thousands of dollars during the past few mouths. The roundup resulted from a tip given In Boston to Inspector Ferrari late yesterday, and, after the men under arrest had been lodged in the Worcester office of the State police this afternoon, lie said he recognised \ incenzo and Le Casse as Boston men for whom the police have been , looking. Police Guessing for Months The officers declare that they have evidence which will connect the I three men with the mysterious robberies that have had the State and j railroad police guessing for many months. With the men under arrest, but i reported by the officers as only under detention, is David L. Coppersmith ; of 30 Columbia st, Worcester, who iownB and drove the automobile which took them to Millbury. I The roundup was the most sensa-| tlonal police happening in the his-; tory of Millbury, and the proceedings were witnessed by thousands of residents of the town who flocked to the vicinity of the high school building. even before the arrest was made, the news spreading Uke wildfire that the town wa* filled with strange j officers and something big wa# on I tap. --- Planned to Waylay Messenger The payroll for the nearly 400 employes of the Felters Company aggregates about $10,000 and the money ie brought to the mill office from the Mechanics National Bank in Worcester. It has been the custom to take the money to Millbury on the train from Money Rates Marked Up Stocks Slump Severity NEW YORK, March 24—The speculative structure erected over the stock market a few weeks ago, largely as a result of the Supreme Court derision exempting stock dividends from the income tax, evaporated into thin air today after having given early promise of attaining greater heights. Favorite issues, especially those dominated by pools and other professional interests, reacted S to almost 45 points from maximum quotations of the morning, the market closing in great disorder with call money at 14 percent. The sudden advance in demand loans, which opened at the recent fixed rate of 7 percent, was accompanied by circumstantial rumors that lenders of money were being urged by the Federal Reserve Bank to put the brakes en further speculation. It is generally known that officials of the Central Federal Reserve Bank and other financial interests have viewed the recent market movement with disapproval ii not absolute concern. Any continuance of the recent advance, it was believed, would neces- (oiitlnuc«l ou the Fourth Page sitate further drastic actien against "unessential loans.” The day was one of the most active since the break of last February when all markets were much unsettled by the collapse of foreign exchange. Conditions in the international credit situation have changed for the better since that time and foreign remittances were steady to strong today, although French-Italian rates reflected pressure. UNION COAL TEAMSTERS ACCEPT $5 A WEEK RAISE After a lengthy and stormy meeting, I the members of Coal Teamsters’ Union, Local *8, accepted the counsel of Pres John J.
