Can Sy lea from tha big ones for ft U a
ton, notwithstanding (he common retail
price of 110 a ton, delivered. Information
to this effect Waa give by" Charles Boy
of WW North Seventeenth street, the I
proprietor of the Crystal Ice company,
which hat two wagons in operation. Mr.
Boyd aald he procured hi supply front
the People's lee and Coal company ex
clusively, but that ha kad no contract of
any kind with this Arm and no agreement
waa exacted as ,to what bla retail price
should be.
Last year Mr. Boyd aald ha had bought
tee for M M a ton and soid it for tt and M
a ton. Ma waa preeaeyj for an explanation
aa to why tha ratio between tha buying and
selling-, price bad bean increased, and re
plied that It waa due to the fact that tha
tea thla year la much poorer In quality to
that of laat year-. Ha ea II mated the shrink
age at SO par cant and declared It seemed
that the Ire waa no sooner In the wagon
than it melted. Laat year, ha declared, the
' product could be hauled around all day
and provd good lea tha next morning.
Cosa'parallva Caev ef Delivery.
Tba coat of delivering lea In Kansna City,
according to the dealera' testimony, is
about UH a ton. Figuring on thla basia
tha profit of tha man who has to buy his
fee from tha eompAnlaa 'hat do tha great
bulk of the local business la tha neat llttlo
margin of P a ton, or X par cent of tha
price the coneumer has to shall out,
'T think we" nve" demonstrated thae ex-f
orbltant prlcea are charged, although we
have not smoked out the lea trust," aald
County Attorney'h. "We are still
working on the matter and want all the
assistance we can get from the public and
the'wfcppefraV.- We" have 'no- power to
aubooeae, wttneaaea or to compel them to
testify or to give teettmorty under oath, and
we must rely largely upon volunteer evi
dence.'.' ; Acting1 upon the orders of Mayor Tahl
mao Inapeetor of Welghta aud Meaaurea
Pcgff got busy Sunday and tested seven
teen ice wagon scales used by the Omaha
Ice and Cold Storage company, the biggest
lea .concern in town. Tha Inapeetor found
eight out of aeventeen scales short and
condemned And confiscated them. One' of
thtee scalee weighed ten pounds abort out
of twenty pounds.
All lea Ba Welched.
Tne mayor has announced his Intention to
ask the council to paaa an ordinance re
quiring all Ice deliveries to be weighed.
He haa received many complaints that Ice
man do not weigh tha Ice at all, but simply
guesa at the quantity. One of theaa com
plaints came from a man who declared he
had discovered an alleged 10O-pound chunk
of ice to weigh only aeventy-two pounds
when put on a acala.
That Ice men are still princes of labor
waa tha aubatanca of Proprietor Boyd
testimony when he remarked that ha bad
to pay tea a month to hie assistants and
buy them their lunches. Hla small com
pany, It appears, is backed financially by
C. H. Isard, a borarehoer and relative. Mr.
leard detailed a conversation he had held
a. 1th the offloerft of the People s Ice and
Coal company early In the year from which
he obtained the opinion that a feeling of
hostility existed among the big local Ice
companies, tie naa no anowieage or any
lea trust or combination.
The most Interesting part of Mr. Isard's
testimony was given when he asserted
that he had been told "by a party who
aeeroa to be relied upon," that the Dally
News man had gone to an Ice company and
said If tho company would furnish "them
with the Ice for the office and hla reaidence
"he would rut out all the talk about this
Ira trust In his paper." Mr. Isard abso
lutely refused to go Into particulars, but
his source of Information has stated that
tha ice company refused the temptation

he would have to pay for It.
Caaaellaaea abed jr Light.
Councilman Johnson, McOovern, Sheldon,
Snicker and Elsasaar were examined, but
were unable to shed, any illumination In
tha dark quest for the trust.
City Inspector of Weights and Measures
John O. Pegg offered testimony which
earned to Indicate that tha practice had
been to teat about two lea wagon scales
per weak. ?
William H. Huntington, at present cashier
of trfe Alfalfa Feed company, a former
cashier of the Talbot Ice company, was
rather disappointing in bla testimony, aa
It waa expected he would tall what he
knew. If ha knew any-thin. About an Ice
trust. Ba left that business last December,
and said , there waa no combination laat
year, although tha Talbot Ice company,
which la now merged into the Doe concern,
worked hamonlously with the Lamereanx
Ira company. Crystal company, Omaha
Distilled Water lee company and tha South
Omaha Ice and Coal company. He aald
that th People'a Ice and the Keirle Ice
companlee were competitors than. He aald
that what knowledge he had of tha condi
tions thla year were that they ware virtu
ally the same as last year. - He thought
tha increased price waa due to the shortage
of local production laat winter, which waa
only one-half the naual crop. He declared
the Ice companies lost money last year.
Price la I'nlform.
C. J. Keirle of the Kelrle Ice company
of Florence, testified that his concern ran
but two wagons, not caring to peddle ice
because It la more profitable to ship It.
Me said he shipped Ice to South Omaha
and sold It to the Union Pacific. The
company has Ice houses at Florence and
Walnut HIU. Asked 'to give a list of the
ice companlee In the city ha mentioned
tha Omaha lea and Cold Storage com
pany, commonly known as the Doe com
pany, Kelrle Ice company. West Omaha
Ice company, East Omaha Ice company,
Pries' Lake lee company and Ryan Ice
company. He admitted that they all
charged about the same price. He aald
he had no agreement with any one about
prlcea, nor had there been any aa he know
of and that, the companies had tried to
agree heretofore, but -could not.
Mr. Kelrle atated that the big companies
started out by fixing the price and the
othera followed accordingly, which was
the course adopted by hla company this
year. It developed during hla statement
and those of othera that the butchers and
the grocers bargain through their associa
tion and obtain lower prices than the pub
lic by contract each season with a single
company. Mr. Kelrle said the Doe company
had the butchers' contract last year. This
year, he said. Ice Is sold to butchers at
W a ton, but he thought the People's Ice
and Coal company la selling at $5 a ton
this class of trade.
He declared the Ice crop waa short last
winter and believed that the shortage Is
responsible for the high prices. The Doe
company, he aald. got about 7.000 tons of
Ice last winter. He said It cost this com
pany $2,000 a year to run Ita reservoirs, and
that It coat Just as much to put up one
third a the full amount of Ice. It will not
be long, he asserted, before the Ice put up
last winter will be gone and a new aupply
will have to be shipped. Four yeara ago,
Mr. Kelrle aald, his company lost tl.ono In
six week -because they ran out of Ice In
tha fall and had to ship it in from the
north. In his opinion tha Doe company
would not make enough profit thla year to
pay for Its loss last year, when It sold Ice
for ft a ton. The witness declared a hos
tile feeling existed among the varloua com.
