WASHINGTON, Jan. 28.-A con-
clusion that the nation's anti-pro-
hibition newspapers as a whole
have approximately doubled the
circulation of those favoring the
dry law was reached today by the
Methodist board of temperance.
In a survey of 1,346 daily papers
having an aggregate circulation of
32,994,609 the board placed only 520
of these as definitely "wet." Their
combined circulation, however, was
estimated at more than 21,000,000
or 64 per cent, while that of the
809 "dry" papers was 10,488,553, or
32 per cent. There were 115, mostly
of small circulation, described as

than a score of coal miners were
killed when 600 pounds of black
powder exploded in the little Bet-
ty mine near here late today.
About 25 men were in the north
main sector of the mine when
the blast occured. Two of the
men, critically i n j u r e d, were
brought to the Linton hospital.
One of them is expected to die.
Dr. C. C. Hamilton, who was

Cashing of Bonuses Would

Despite Evidence of Hoover Veto
Committee Proposes to Favor
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Feb. 28.-Secre-"
tary Mellon told the Senate finance
committee today that proposals for
cashing the bonus certificates of
World War veterans are without
"economic merit" and ihstead of
improving conditions would "deep-
en" the world depression.
Mellon was closely questioned as
he predicted a treasury deficit of
$375,000,000 and warned the cash
conversion plan would not only
have "serious consequences" on
:public credit but would "greatly
disturb world equilibrium."
Harrison Favors Payment.
The veteran treasury secretary
had barely concluded his statement
of the adminis-

ent cash value of their certificates.
Harrison announced he favored
paying the veterans the present
cash value of their certificates.
Mellon's personal appearance was
considered by committee members
as added evidence of the adminis-
tration's strong attitude toward the
proposed legislation. It increased
the belief among some senators
that President Hoover would veto a
bill to pay the veterans the cash
value of their certificates.

Mellon's prepared s t a t e m e n t,
which was read to the committee
by Under-Secretary Mills, confined
its attack to the proposal for pay-
ing the face value of the certificates
which would cost about $3,400,000,-
