IL—lt was learned today from an authority high in the miners’ confidence that the present policy of the United Mine Workers of America is to de mand that any government interven tion in the hard coal industry take into account the re-establishment of the Jacksonville agreement in soft coal. From now on, it was said wage contract conditions affecting 158,000 hard eoal miners and 500,000 soft coal miners must be considered joint ly by an anthracite mediator to gain cooperation from the miners’ union. Anthracite operators recently as serted belief that the key to the union’s strategy this summer was a determination to win redress of al leged wrongs in soft ooal fields through hard coal pressure upon public authorities. The United Mine Workers deny this. But they now assume, it was stated definitely, that the breaking •off of anthracite seals uegotiatid)# thetr pledge to the anthracite opCr-’ theyir pledge to the anthracite oper ators to keep hnrd and soft eoal operators diverged.

RAULSTON IS ATTACKED .. " * BY CLARENCE HARROW Is Alleged to Have Used Scopes Case For His Own Political ExptoKg. • tion. J Chicago. Au£ 11.—Clarence -D>ufc, row. defense counsel in the John T. Scopes Tennessee evolution trial, to day charged that Judge John T. Raulston, who presided at the trial, used the ease to further his own po litical ambitions. Mr. Darrow, who is in Greeley,- Colo., made his charges in a telegram' ; to the Chicago Daily News in answer to criticism of Mr. Harrow’s con-, duct at the trial voiced by Judge Raulston in an address here last Sunday at a memorial meeting for William Jennings Bryan. Judge Raulston in his address referred particularly to citing Mr. Darrow I for contempt and said that Mr. Bryan asked the leniency to be shown his adversary. Mr. Harrow's telegram to the News follows: • “Judge Raulston was elected on a fluke and is now campaigning for : re-election this fall. The trial was part of his campaign. He called the grand jury and asked them to indict Scopes in a hurry so that the case ' could be tried in his district. The in dictment was illegal, as it was brought too soon after convening of a special grand jury, so the judge had him re-indicted a month later, on the day of the trial. “On Sunday, three days before the case was closed Mr. Bryan spoke - twice in Dayton. Raulston waa 1 present at both meetings nnd sat on the platform at one. He paraded his fundamentalism all through the trial and has given the people of Chicago a chance to see what kind of trial ; could have been held before him. ’, 5 “It was perfectly proper to call Mr. Rryan, a recognized expert on the Bible, to testify as to meaning of story of creation. The questions ask ed him were perfectly civil, but when the examination had only commenc ed. the judge came into court in the morning and took Mr. Bryan off the stand without any motion to that ef fect being made in court. “The judge may be glad he has a limited education. One can not al ways avoid being ignorant, but few boast of it. “The incident citing me for con tempt is absorb. I did feel o con tempt for his unfairness. I did show it. as often happens by lawyers court. 1 did npoUggize as I should have done. This constantly happen* in the court and the judge knows, al though it never happened to me be fore.” | In Mexico City symptoms of b(b bonic plague have been found in ratg| and the people living there are tak ing measures to prevent a possible outbreak.
