testify Thursday morning.
j Mr. Heal.y willingly answered general
truat, hla answers being in the negative.
He ahao denounced newspaper atorlea a
without foundation, "like other atorlea

.itfusal met a question as to what It cost to
prepare ordinary Ice for market.
"Prices ax a high," declared Mr. Healey,
"because of the scarcity of the product.
He denied that all companies sold it at the
same price, and when aaked to name some
of the companies that sold below 60 cents
to the domestic trade he said one of the
drivers told him the Ryan company sold it
for 40 cents.
He waa asked why one company could
sell at a higher price than others, and In
reply said it was because the customers
knew his company could take care of
them. The schedule of prices his com
pany followed Is aa follows: Domestic
trade, 60 rents a hundred; saloons, $7
ton; butcher shops and meat markets, 6;

this year at 36 cents uvnd 40 cents a" hun

''That Is true of local Ice."
Refaaea to Answer.
Following thla he refused to answer
questions relating to the cost of the manu
factured product. Mr. Healey was very
positive In his statements that there Is no
trust or agreement to keep up prices.
Mr. Healey's name was sent to County
