Burns Declares Washington, March -(By N. -The peak of the postwar crime wave has been reached and a barely perceptible decrease has begun to be noted, Wm.

J. Burns, chief investigator for the Department of Justice, stated today in reviewing the three years of crime history in the wake of the World War. It may take more than three years more for the crime wave to settie back to normalcy, he declared. At present the prisons of the country are filled with criminals, he said. The Federal prisons have been unable to hold the inincreasing number of prisoners sent to them, and it has been found necessary by the government to set aside Camp Grant, Illinois, to receive the overflow.

Holdups and burglaires hold first place in the crime record of the postwar years and are also listed today as the most frequent crimes. Blackmail ranks after holdups and burglaries. Most of the women black mailers are being directed by men, he said. After blackmail, murder over pre- war and time years. ranks highest in ratio, of increase he said.

Not twenty, per cent of the blackmail cases country ever become known, Burns declared, and for this reason the police are ham- pered in their efforts to trace down the perpetrators of blackmail. the extent of the extortionists' activE people "It if would they Extortionists astonish realized the Successful how great American is ities, and with what great success they "War are meeting." is the Burns only saidise we can determine for the crime wave. We 'are confident that the peak of the wave has been reached and that it will soon recede. There are signs now that indicate the start of the recession. We are hopeful it will continue to recede in generous jumps.

It is true, however. that we are today still close the peak of the crime wave." A bureau of identification in the bureau of investigation. under the supervision of Burns, has begun to function, he said, and through its operatives and system records supplying criminals to chiefs of police throughout the country. Burns expects to have in operation a powerful organization to aid in the work of checking and forcing back the crime wave.

Okla- homa and Texas, Organizers at Work For the non-union miners Joining the shutdown, the union does not plan to finance their idleness, officinis declaring their program for winning the co-operation of these workers calls only for a "peaceful appeal." Organizers, however, have been quietly at work for some time, and their effectiveness be forecast, no long interruption seems imminent in the non-union fields, For six months the threat of pension has been becoming more apparent, Last September the miners made it clear that their policy was opposed to any wage reductions, which operators generally were ask ing. but the exact stand of the union was made known a little more than a month ago, Insist Present Scale Can Be tained Briefly, the miners' demands are that present basic wages be retained in the soft coal fields and that the anthracite tonnage workers receive a 30 per cent increase with $1 a day advance being given to the anthracite day workers. The basic rates for the soft coal workers range from $1.08 to $1.11 a ton for pick mining.

and the day men reccive 67.50 a day. Exact tonnage rates in the anthracite felds are said by the union to be lower than in the soft coal triet, and the anthracite day men from $4.20 to $5.60 a day. Aside from the wage question, the fight of the miners in the soft coal fields is directed toward preserving the unions' system bargaining that has grown up during the last forty years, In the past wages have been fixed by an interstate contract applying to Western Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, with contracts for other soft coal fields being based on interstate contract. The contract question, however, is not an issue in anthracite district. Reductions Amount to 40 Per Cent In addition to redutcion in wages, the soft coal operators have refused to continue the interstate method of contract making.

Reductions proposed by the operators generally amount to forty per vent of prevailing scales, or a return to the wages established by contracts made in 1916. Some operators also insist on the abolition of the union's -off," I the plan by which operators deduct union dues from the miners' wages. While the union's affairs will be I directed generally by the internatonal executive officers and the subordinate district officials, ani quesLions of policy have been vested in a special committee of 116 men. completing the various district unions The committee will meet 011 tire call of President Lewis, who said that future meetings "depend on developments the strike." As outlinled by the committee. the union's policy on entering the suspension is to permit no wage agreements being made for soft coal fields until after a contract, substantially the same as that existing today, has been made for the central competitive tield.

For the anthracite field the policy stands for wage increases. While the polley is subject to. committse change, it now calla for ending the suspension in any field only after the miners have approved a new contract by a referendum vote.
