FUEL IIIEINT MINDS 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 come on."

With apples of a good finality selling 1 nthe local tnurket at forty cents a peck, while out In some- of the orchards of tho stale, ut leant, equally an good apples have been totting on tho ground, It Is quito evident that wo liavo ono problem of considerable importance yet to solve. Ono of our beat known farm 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 able to 11 ml out where tho trouble Iks Lincoln News. Kills a Murderer.
