Twice during that period Mercury slipped As Low As 20 ?� reference doubtless will be made to the fact that after Jan. 21 there was Only one Day in that month on which the Mercury was above Zero that being on the 29th. During a period of 33 Days starting Jan. 21 there were Only nine Days on which the Mercury was above Zero. That stretch ran from Jan. 21 to feb. 22. During the february portion of the period there were eight Days on which the government thermometers registered above Zero. Starts with 9 below. February started with 9 below. On the following Day it was to below. A Brief respite sent the Mercury above Zero on the next two Days but it took a turn downward on the 5th and 6th, striking 17 below and 12 below respectively. Then followed two Days with the temperature above Zero to be succeed by three More Days below Zero. The 12th, 13th and 14th passed without Mercury reaching Zero and then came a spell of six Days of More sub Zero weather. On the 18th the Mercury reached 18 below.

Constitutionality the big Issue is whether Congress under the Commerce clause has the right to i regulate the Coal Industry. The Case headed for the Sun to preme court arises from the injunction suit brought by the cart Jer Coal company in which the District of Columbia court held the act to labor provisions Union Stith tonal but sustained the tax a and Price provisions to which old building later a shop where carriages and plaintiff objected. Whether the Federal govern i ment has the Power to lend and Grant Money to municipalities and i communities for construction of i Public Power plants is the Issue in about 50 suits brought against Secretary Ickes and pea by Power companies saying no such right exists. Congress right involved. Another category of cases involving the spending Power of Congress is represented in the government to Appeal from a ruling of the circuit court in Louisville that the Federal government to Power to condemn property for Public use did no to extend to condemnation of property for the ultimate use of private persons. Attorneys for suing property owners in the Louisville Case have contended that Congress in appropriating pea Money left an illegal amount of discretion to the president some government lawyers have feared that the court might for the first time Lay Down rigid rules for delegation of such discretion by Congress As to disposition of Federal funds.

Editor to note Coal figures largely in today to International news. In new York Anthracite operators and labor leaders Are wrestling with a new wage and hour pact. In London economists and industrialists Are struggling to save a sick Industry their efforts to nationalize British mining complicated by age old judicial decisions. Following is an article on the problem faced by British experts. Copyright. 1936, by ins London feb. 29.�?" is a a Legal hangover from the Days of Queen Elizabeth today is giving British Treasury experts severe headaches As they seek to Settle Britain to Coal mining problems. Back in elizabethan Days the British courts decided minerals like Coal belonged to those on whose land they were found. Today 367 years later this old judgment is proving the main obstacle to government proposals for nationalization of the country to Coal mining Industry. Mines pay royalties. Out of this ancient court decision has grown the Royalty system whereby Mineral owners and Colliery farms negotiate leases conferring the right to work Coal for a specified number of years upon payment of a fixed sum per ton of Coal raised. Thus Mineral owners in Britain receive about $30,000,000 a year in Coal royalties representing an average of 12 cents on every ton of Coal won from the ground. But the main Plank of the go Emmentt to Coal nationalization scheme provides for compulsory unification or Purchase of royalties and their control thereafter by the state. The Treasury experts Are wrestling with the problem of discovering ways and Means of buying out the Royalty owners. Would Cost $500,066,060. Actuaries have estimated it will Cost the state More than $500,000,-000 to Purchase the royalties. In Normal times this amount could be raised easily through a government loan at Low interest rates. But today with other Irons in the fire including a projected billion Dollar loan for armaments the government must proceed cautiously. For 15 years various parliamentary commissions have examined the Coal mining situation reported on it and have seen their reports either shelved or adopted piecemeal. Nearly All these reports have declared compulsory acquisition of royalties by the state will provide the Best solution in a getting this vital Industry on the Road to peace and reasonable ?� a pressing problem. Spokesmen of various British governments including the present National government have admitted the Royalty question is a pressing problem and repeatedly have stressed the intended adoption by the state of measures to acquire royalties. Theory behind the scheme is that once royalties have been acquired by the state the amounts to be paid in royalties by the col Iery companies will be greatly reduced and numerous inconsistencies will be abolished Cost of mining and marketing will be cheaper and losses sustained by Large percentage of the firms will be converted into profits resulting in higher dividends and better wages.
