Coal operators are said to be striving hard to keep their mines open and to save the in- dustry for the state. Closing of the mines would mean severe loss in employment arid taxable property. The seriousuess of the situa- tion is emphasized by the fact fact that the industry contributes at least $500,000 in taxes alone to the state, it was said. It is the largest industry in Washing- ton with an annual payroll of $11,000,000 for labor, and another of $9,000,000 for materiM and supplies. W. E. Maltby, manager of the Washington Coal Operators As. sociation, Seattle, states that it has been necessary to close two mines. Owing to the nature of these mines, it will be impossible to reopen them and the proper- ties are now a loss to the state forever. Several other mines are said to be closed temporarily. Others are operating at a loss. Operat- ors are making every effort to keep their mines running, Mr. Maltby reported, because, if clos- :ed, it will be practically impos- sible to reopen them on account "of difficult mining conditions peculiar to the state. Closing of additional mines will mean ser- ious crippling of the industry with resultant loss of revenue of the state. Oil is shipped into Washington by water on a freight rate of 23-: cents a barrel. Converting this' into terms of coal, operators de- clare, means about 80-cents per Seattle. In addition to the oil situation, serious competition is furnshed #y foreign coal. Employment of oriental labor in the soft coal fields of Vancouver Island en- ables Canadian operators to .mine coal on an average of $2 a day under wages paid mine labor in Washington.

The 29-year-old Frenchman sailed into New York Harbor this week in a thrty-foot sail boat the first man ever to cross the Atlantic alone in such a small wind-driven craft. For 142 days, battling storm, hunger, thirst-and illness Gerbault kept a spark of confidence burn- ing. He sailed 'from Gibralter' April 5 andarrived in New York September 17. With the cup of victory still at his lips, he paused to sac, "ad now to cross the Pacific." Alain J. Gerbault is a soldier of fortune. Wtren two friends at Par- is doubted his assertion that the Atlantic could be sailed by one man n a30-foot boat, he decided to show them. Gerbault is the fifth ranking tennis player of France and has c o n t es ted in international matches: During the war, as a Hszardous? I don't think so. You always pull through somehow, if you handle your boat like a sailor should." Veteran mariners declare Ger- bault's feat one of the most dar- ing and unique in the annals of the sea. Ninety-seven days he was out of sight of land, tossed about on mountainous waves in a boat whose deck dipped water when four men crowded onto her after he docked here Monday. Battled Great Storm. Forty-eight hours he lay sprawl- ed in the bunk of his tiny cabin, unconscious from fever which struck him down during a gale which battered the little craft, sweeping her deck clean of rig- ging and flooding the dozen or so feet of cabin space. Twenty-four days he battled the fury of the Atlantic .which broke his bowsprit, loosened his mast and ripped his sails--a storm which reachec} cyclonic heightts arid was reported some weeks ago at the time by incoming transat- lantic liners. Provisions he had stocked for a 100-day trip ran low two weeks from New York because of delay by terrific gales while beating his way across the southern portion of the Atlantic. Two-thirds of his water spoiled and was cast over- board, poisoned by the wood in the newly made kegs. Two weeks ago, when crabed by thirst and lack of food he was hailed by a great ocean liner bound for NeW York, which want- e(d to pick him up--or at least tow him in. He thanked the cap- tain but refused. Victory was in sight. He was given provisions and left to his fate. Never Thought of Failure. Lose hope? Not this sailorman Gerbault ! "During:the heght of that twen- ty-four day storm my mast was battered loose, my bowsprit brok- en and'I was drenched to the skin. whichbrought about the fever, but I always figured that if the worst should happenthe mast toppling--I'd rig up something with a sail and put in for nearest land, Bermuda. The twenty-fifth day, about the midklle of July, however, the storm-subsided and I continued for New York. I re- bufltthe bowsprit, tightened the mast, nmnded the riggingand sM- ed "on, I knew I'd reach New York somehow," Coming over he wore only heavy woolen trousers, a slipover sweater; no socks or shoes.
