MEN'S LOSS ON
ADMINISTRATION ALLOWS FUEL
DEALERS TO TAKE MARGIN
WHICH NEW GOVERNMENT
PRICLS SWEPT AWAY.
Washington, Nov. S. Thousands
of tons of coal held by jobbers and
wholesalers were made available for
emergency distribution today when
the lutl administration decided to
allow dealers to take a small margin
of profit on coal they had contracted
for at high prices before the govern
ment prices were fixed.
Under previous orders jobbers
have been permitted to sell only at
a small margin above the govern
ment price at the mine regardless of
the figures named in their contracts.
Because in many instances this price
was less than the coal costs them,
the jobbers have held their coaL
Today's ruling provides that the
jobbers may sell at a margin of 15
per cent above the contract cost to
purchasers to be designated by state
fuel administrators. The fuel ad
ministrators will place the coal in
communities most in need of it.
Increase Coal Production.
Measures to increase coal produc
tion were taken up at a conference
today between officials of the food
administration, administrators of the
National Coal association and repre
sentatives of the railroad war board,
the priorities committee and the In
terstate Commerce commission. Con
sideration was given to a proposal
that coal shipments be given prefer
ence in transportation over all other

Local committees serving under

In a recent order retailers were di

than they took in 1915, with the pro
vision that in no instance were mar

July of this year. Today's order em

these margins wherever investiga

World's Greatest Indian Orator and
The most notable representative
of the Indian race upon the Amer
ican platform is Chief Caupolican,
orator, singer, entertainer and man
of affairs. He is a native of Chili,
South America a member of the
Aurocan Indians, a race which was
never subjucated by the Spaniards.
He is an accomplished linguist,
speaking fluently English, French
and German as well as his native
tongue. He was self-educated in
letters and music in France and
Caupolican's story of his own peo
ple, and their long struggle against
the aggressions of the Spaniards
never fails to hold his audience in
breathless attention. Pride of race

is evident in every gesture, and his
stories of the old-time triumphs of
his people are told in the manner of
an ancient bard celebrating a vic
tory, rather than that of the enter
tainer. While- the story he tells is
thrilling, yet the real climax comes
when he breaks into song. He is
the possessor of a splendid high bari
tone with marvelous feeling and ex
Altogether Chief Caupolican gives
one of the most unusual and thor
oughly attractive programs upon
the American platform. For the
past six years he has been a star up
on the greatest vaudeville circuits,
and has delighted audiences in all
the country's leading cities. He be
longs essentially to the Lyceum and
Chautauqua-, however, and we are
very glad to present him to a new
and finer clientele of real Ameri
cans, adapted by temperament and
insight to thoroughly appreciate the
artistry of his offerings. We believe
that from this time he is destined to
be a headliner in the Lyceum world.
