SAY COAL PRICE
FIXED TOO HIGH
IOWA AND ILLINOIS COAL CON
SUMERS APPEAL BEFORE
Show Statistics to Prove Present
Prices Higher Than Year's
Washington, Oct. 3. Representa
tives of public utilities companies in
Iowa and Illinois, headed by Clifford
Thorne appeared today before the
fuel administration to protest against
the coal prices fixed by the govern
ment. The fixed prices, they con
tend, while lowering the marked
prices obtaining at the time, in al
most every instance are higher than
the average prices for the last year.
Affidavits and receipts of the Iowa
Railway and Light company were
presented to show that the company
bought within the last six months
approximately 100,000 tons of coal
at prices ranging from 4 5 cents to
$1.45 iess than the price fixed for
coal produced in Iowa. It is con
tended that prices prevailing thru
out that state before the president's
order went into effect were exorbi
tant and that the action of the gov
ernment did not relieve the situa
tion, but rather made it worse.
Sworn statements of Charles Web
ster, Iowa state fuel administrator,
Ed. Sweeney, state mine inspector
and C. O. Ingersoll, purchasing agent
of the Iowa Railway &. Light com
pany, were presented to support that
Regarding the situation in Illinois,
evidence was produced to show that
the fixed prices on August 21 re
duced prevailing market prices on
free coal in Illinois from fifty-five
cents to $1.30 per ton but the aver
age price was 50 per cent higher
than the average price on all coal
sold in Illinois during 191 C, which
was $1.25 at the mines. The aver
age price in 1916 was said to be the
highest in ten years.
Slack Coal Higher.
It was argued that. the price es
tablished in Illinois on screenings or
slack coal, which is used by public
utilities and factories, is 100 per
cent higher than a year ago, as as
certained by representatives of the
Tri-city (Moline, Rock Island and
Davenport) Railway & Light com
pany, operating in more than fifty
Illinois cities an dtowns. The max
imum price last year for screenings
in Illinois fields, it is said, was S5
cents a ton, while the president has
fixed the price at $1.70.
Frank G. McAllister. attorney
general for Missouri, told that in
his investigation at St. Louis recent
ly, sworn statement of coal opera
tors showed the cost of production in
southern Illinois fields to range from
$1.04 to $1.40 a ton while the prices
fixed by the government range from
$1.70 to $2.20, allowing coal pro
ducing companies a dividend on their
capital stock of from 50 to SO per
cent as war profits.
Sworn statements of the Illinois
Central railroad were introduced to
show that the prices established by
the government are more than 30 per
cent higher than that company was
able to contract for the entire out
put of more than a dozen Illinois
mines this year and about 70 per
cent higher than the Illinois Cen
tral itself reports as the cost of pro
duction in mines it controls in Illi
nois. It was contended that the federal
trade commission's investigation ac
countants in ascertaining produc
tion costs did not conduct as thor
ough an investigation as they should
have conducted. Operators were not
required to take oats as to the figures
on their books, it is said and were
not required to go on the witness
stand to present their figures and
face cross examination and evidence

LYMAN HOWE TRAVELOGUES
AT THE PARMELE THEATRE
The attraction booked for the
Parmele Theatre on Thursday, Oct.
11 is a great deal more than a mere
amusement enterprise. It is an
American institution. For Lyman
II. Howe's Travel Festival fills a
place in the esteem of the public
that it has created for itself. In a
sense the new production reflects the
spirit of America possibly more than
any Mr. Howe has presented. First
of all there is the official and ex
clusive feature from "Somewhere in
the Atlantic" which shows the arms
and armament of Uncle Sam's
Navy alert for any contingency in
sea and air, and the latest offensive
and defensive devices and methods
of naval warfare up-to-the-minute.
Another distinctively American sub
ject shows how our midshipmen are
trained at the Annapolis II. S. Naval
Academy to become commanding
officers. Of American indusrial life
there are scenes of absorbing inter
est showing logging in Maine, and
also many tense moments that oc
curred during a broncho-breaking
contest in our real wild" west in
which the most fearless cowboys and
cowgirls engage. Then, too, there
is a delightful ride through the
Cascade Mountains in Washington.
But foreign lands also contribute
their quota of film masterpieces in
this new program. A notable ex
anlple takes Howe travelers to the
gorges, cascades and ancient ruins
of Southern France while another
opens up vistas of supernatural
grandeur on Alpine heights. Freely
interspersed with these and many
other subjects are a legion of en
tirely new silhouette "cut tips'
which will contribute much clever
and wholesome amusement by their
quaint and merry antics.

"Free'' means that this ware does hot cost Copper-Clad buyers a

This ware is very substantial and just the kind you would se

Come See the Asbestos Sweat.
Next Week October 8th to 13th
Xo matter whether you want a range now or next year or any
other time, it will pay you to come and see the Copper-Clad Crank
make he-Asbestos Sweat.
He takes anv piece of asbestos, puts it between two iron plates
heats it and "shows you the sweat. You can roll it up in drops
with your finger.
L'verv good range must be lined with asbestos to cage and
hold the heat. Every time the range cools off the asbestos takes
mohture out of the fresh air circulating through the range like a
blotter takes up water. When you fire up, this moisture, driven
by the heat to the outside against the cold range body starts Sweats
Itusl on the inside where you can't get at it even though you know
rusts. Sweat Rust ruins thousands and thousands of otherwise
yod ranees everv vear. When the bodv is gone, the range is done for.
The Copper-Clad Idea Is "A Sheet of Pure
Copper Betveen the Asbestos and Range Body"
Copper " never rusts. It may tarnish but it will last for cen
:ries. There are Cor per Domes that have been defying the ele
ments for hundreds of years. So. w hen we say a "Copper-Clad can't
rust out." v.e mean that the copper lining overcomes all internal
rut. Your greasy rag will keep the outside free of rust and
there are no fussy ornaments full of rivets and bolts to skin your
hand.. The Copper-Clad wipes clean like a dish.
If these things are so you should know it. Xot by hearsay
but by (he evidence of your own eyes. Remember, this Copper-Clad
Crank is here to tell to show to explain. He delights in it. You
