PRICE OF COAL IS RAISED
Advanced at Minna from Fifty Oent to
One Dollar a Too.
RAILROADS LICK UP ALL THEY CAN
Local Dealer InilJr e Get Ordars
Killed Believe Meaaatee Art
Determine to Force Strike
to Hall the Market.
"The coal mine magnates will force tha
strike If they possibly can. If John Mlt.
ihcll and his brave men withstand tha
unjust treatment In alore for them they
will do more tlian mortala usually do.
The uperutors are determined to set more
money for their coal."
TIil to the view of a local coal dealer.
What Vlll be the condition of Omaha a
few weeks from now as regard coal, If the
expected strike in Uie inlnea cornea off?
This to thu question of uppermoat Intcreat
with tha coal dealers of the city.
The, developments of the last few days
linve alarmed them. Advance at tha
mines have increased the wholesale price
of coal 60 cents to $1. end the cause, aa
given by the mining operator". Is that they
consider tin' danger f a Ktrlke dally more
Imminent. Wholesalers hero are receiving
their orders hack from the mlnei, accom
panied by letters stating that coal has ad
vanced and order will be filled only on a
higher buds. J. N. Marsh received a letter
Tuesday from Oentervtlte. Is-, returning
orders, and stating that prices had been
advanced $1 on coal. A similar letter from
one of the big Illinois mines said the prices
nuked was 60 cents higher than It was last
Railroads Are lloBKlnw It.
A worse result of the Impending strike,
say the coal men, Is the fact that the rail
roads are taking up all the coal they can
get In order to tldo them over a strike,
and they rob the dealers Indiscriminately
and unmercifully. They arbitrarily take
coal, hundreds of cars of It. without asking
the leave of anybody, paying to the con
signee the price asked of him by the con
signor. The railroads always have done
thin and there seems to be no relief from
this practice. If a dealer enters any pro
test against the stealing of his conl. the
railroads say. "nil right, we haven't ffot
coal to move this train If we can't use
thin coal. We'll have to set the coal on
the sidetrack." The dealers could get
redress by law, but they say they cannot
afford to get the railroad "sore" at them,
for their business would be ruined.
Retailers said Tuesday they had not
raised the price to consumers, preferring
to take a loss themselves rather than raise
the price to their regular customer. As
for new business, they declared they could
not take any. for the reason they could
make no money on it, and because they
wanted to have enough coal to supply
their regular trade in case of a strike.
The jobbers are of opinion the retailers
will be forced to iinrne an advance soon.
Only a few of them have large stocks on
hands: some have liberal stocks, and
many have but a small quantity.
Scarce at Any Price',
"I am afraid It will be a question of
getting coal at any price," said A. L.
Havens. "Between the strike. If It comes,
and the railroads, we will be In a tight

COMPANY ASKS NEW TRIAL
Mater People File Motto for Rehear
ing; on Case for Hydrant
Tlio Omaha Water company Wednesday
morning tiled Its motion for a new trial
In the cane agitint the city for 1100.000
hydrant rental recently derided against it
In the rnltcd States circuit court. Tile
grounds for the application for a new trial
are: That the verdict waa contrary to
law, error of law occurring during the
trial; court erred in admitting evidence
a to the purity of water, piping and
pumping- rapacity, purchase price of Are
engine liouees, value of Are engines, value
of real estate bought by the city, thus,
compelling the plaintiff to abandon Its right
to go before a jury; error of court in ad
mitting evidence of the ordering of hydrants
not placed without requiring the city first
to show that lt hud a levy and money to
meet such obligations; error of court n
dlrectinc a verdict for the defendant; error
of court in not giving to jury plaintiff's
Instructions directing a verdict for the
plaintiff; error of court In refusing to
permit the plwlntlff to amend Its petftion
In accordance with the proof.
The plaintiffs have not yet filed their
findings of fact with the court and until
tbin Is done the motion for a new trial
and petition to set avide the verdict can
not be heard.
