A Less Volume of Fuel Traffic
on Western Roads.
In speaking of the fuel situation
and that which Is to follow as cold
weather comes creeping on, the Lin
coln State Journal snjs:
"Railroads Kenerally report a less
olume of fuel traffic at this time of
the year than usual. With the dial
era holding a less reserve stork on
hand than usual, with the reserve at
the mines removed by the long
period of Inactivity, the fuel situa
tion Is anything but reassuring to
the people of the west. I'rices have
gone up and the supply has been de
creased. Even with the mines work
ing at full capacity from now on the
output cannot equal high outputs of
other years. The conditions in some
of the mining districts is said to be
bad. Months of Inactivity at the
mines have left some of them In an
unworkable condition. It is said
eonie of the mines have caved In so
that if reopened at all it will take
months to bring the1 production up
to normal; others are filled with
water; others will have to bo cleared
of gases before they can bo safely
worked. In the meantime the de
mand cannot be filled and coal men
see little relief in Bight.
One thing that has operated to
make conditions less serious is the
fact that there has been no shutdown
In the Wyoming and Colorado mines,
and these sources of supply have
been drawn upon by a large territory
In the west. They are working at
capacity now, the higher price added
by the operators being an Induce
ment, when coupled with the de
mand, to run the production to the
highest figure possible.
A Lincoln coal dealer, discussing
the coal situation, says: 'The rail
roads are giving fair service to the
fuel trado, but the orders at the
mines are not being filled. The price
of coal at the mines has boon boost
ed but the railroad rates fjmaln the
same. The railroads' have been mak
ing fairly, prompt delivery after
Shipments are Btarted.'
"It Is no secret among traffic men
that the situation will call for heroic
measures should an e.irly cold snap

Journals Is authority for the state
ment that the country over, many
thousnnds of dollars worth of fruit,
berries and vegetables rotted on the
trees and vines during tho supnier.
At tho Btmc time all that were offer
ed In tho markets were eagerly pur
chased. Why is this? It is ah un
natural condition, and that menus
ono that must and should bo reme
died. Is It due to heavy transpor
tation charges? Tho railroads sol
emnly asnert thnt they do not chnrgo
enough to make their business remu
nerative, Yet the whole problem It
seems t ous, Is one of transportation
and delivery, So long as tho price Is
hot prohibitive tho consumer Is glad
to pay It. The price to tho grower Is,
therefore, generally fixed by tho
transportation charges and tho com
mlsslon men's profit. If wo begin at
the cotiHutnlhg end and trace tho
price backwards, perhaps wo may bo
