A resolution to thjfit purpose was prepared by Senator I GalUnger, Republican loader, after conferences with other Republican leaders who were determined to prevent, if possible, having the coal order go Into effect. f Office 1 RANKER AGGAGE EXPRESS COAL C.O.D.

The order would appear to apply to departmental stores as well as all others. Fuel Administrator Garfield today sent the following telegram to John P. White, his assistant at- the miners' convention at Indianapolis: "Please state that the order closing industr'es for five days will not slow down miners. I am making provision for that and also Include in my appeal request that labor be not allowed to suffer during five days or subsequent Mondays affected by order, f feel confident great masses of employers throughout country will regard this as necessary incident of the war to he borne by them and not shifted to labor " Joint .Resolution.

Washington, Jan. 17.--Dr. Garfxld went before the committee shortly after li o'clock and told his reasons foi issuing the order. Yne fuel and railroad situation, be said, made the action imperative. "The purpose of the order," said Dr. Garfield,. "is not to interfere in the si ghtest w^lli the loading of coal at the mines. This in made clear in the amplification of the abstract." A modification decided upon this morning. Dr. Garfield said, put all consumers in the preferential list on an equal basis, with'no preference shown to/ any one class. �Dr. Garfield said that the plan was to permit certain war industries to operate despite the order. Shipbuilding, he said, was one of them, but if the industries to he exempt were to bo elassif ed in the order, it. would cause a storm of protest and embarrass the fuel administration. He said the secretaries of the war and tiic navy departments were preparing such a list. The list of exempted industries,' Dr. Garfield said, would include those immediately necessary in the conduct of the war. As de from shipping and airplanes, he said, ho did not know what the list would contain. N The order was made necessary, Dr. Garfield said, hv transportation conditions, which had made it impossible to supply industries and at the same time furn'sh.-hon*�s and public institutions. The necessity for moving ships, he said, was so great that drastic measures were coninulsory.

May Take Action in Canada Ottawa, Jan. 17-.-The announcement that Fuel Administrator Garfield, of the United States, has decided to close factor'es east of the Mississippi, for a five day period in order to conserve the coal supply comes as a complete surprise to the Dominion government The importance of the step decided upon by Mr. Garfield is fully realized because i^ removes all doubts ,as to the serious nature of the shortage across the border. No official indication as to whether Canada will follow the example set up by the United States is yet forthcoming. There is a somewhat general impression at the capital that, in view of the fact that Canada is largely do-pendent upon the United Stales for coal supplies, the. government will i and for ail." probably have to show an equally strong disposition to conserve the supply. This could only bo done by \ the Issuance of similar orders n ro gartf to Canadian industries. Should there be a similar suspension of operation of Canadian, factories, however, it would doubtless be for dates jaib-sequent to those fixed by Mr. Car-field's order.
