Charles K. Coutant of the Arm of CouUnt
Ik. 8iultea refused to allow himself to be
Interviewed at the time an lnjuictlon was
Usued against the Omaha Coal exchange,
lie wished to have time to prepare an In
terview and put It In writing. Mr. Coutant
as offered the following for publication:
-The general impression with many Is
hat the coal dealers, through a monopoly,
are practicing a rank extortion, particu
larly as to the price of anthracite coal.
The terms and conditions under which
dealers buy their coal are open and public.
There Is no secrecy about it. Since the
great strike of three years ago the sale Of
hard coal on car at Chicago has been as
follows per ton, the lowest price being
made In April each year: The April price
was V; May, $6.10;' June, $8.a; July, $8.30;
v August, $6,40, and the balance of the year
'J'Hi.60. There was .o deduction, rebate or
variation from these prices. This year
when" April 1 came the coal operators and
" tha miners had not yet settled the terms
and conditions of mining. A Settlement wss
reached in April and an agreement was
made extending three years to April 1, 1909.
Wh n May 1 of this year came the lowest
price of the season to then was made $6.10
un car In Chicago. The .usual advance of
10 centa per month has been made since,
and the price Hi Chicago September 1 waa
$6.50, and, following the usual custom, will
no doubt remain at that figure the balance
of the yenr.
absolute. You can't ge-t an absolute con
tract for any number of cars. If you order
fifty cars of any company they only agree
to do their best to fill it. When the end
of the month comes and they have shipped
forty-five carat only and you. want the ad
ditional five ears you have to pay the price
of the next month, 10 cents advance. So,
you see, we are up- against It.
Ksplalns the Advance.
"The coal-producing companies havw an
explanation for this advance of 10 centa a
month. They say no'one would buy coal
In April for use In October if he could get
it on the last day of September at tho
same prlco as -lu April. . The retail .dealer
would not buy and ' his customers would
not buy of him. If a man bus coal two,
three, (our or five months before he wants
to use-It youf mt Siake It an object to
hlm to do so. If he ran buy it the day
before he wants It at the same price he
could five montha before, it goes without
saying that If he haa sense he will wait.
, .But the companies are producing even In
V summer several million tons per month.
They haven't storage room for even a
mall part they want to produce. They
couldn't store It If they wanted to; so.
they say to the dealers all over the United
States, 'You have sheds. In the aggre
gate you can store several million tons.
If you. will take It In we will make you a
rebate 'proposition to the length of time
you buy before you want to use It. This

HIS LOVELY FORM TURNS THt TRICK
Beeaase of that Kofcle rayslejae X

Will taaa British
On the float Great Britain in the electrical
parade Wednesday night there will be no
green spot Indicating where Ireland lies on
the map and there will be no typical Irish
man brandishing his ehllalah and making
fun for the rrowtls. Instead a roaring Eng
lish lion will hold down this part of the
float, for such is the result of an attempt
to compliment the people of the Emerald
Isle, a people ' held In highest esteem by
the board of governers of Ak-Sar-Ben and
by the people of the realm. It waa a com
bination of misfits which brought about
the change of program.
Now, It happened that In his desire to
compliment the little Isle the chief designer
figured in his mind a handsome figure
dressed as a typical Irishman, with the
shllalah and all, full of fun and good
cheer. He had In his mind tills great and
well known cltisen standing on the same
float with Great Britain as the maps show
them. Of course, he looked for a figure
then that would reflect credit to the best
formed men In the world. Who but Bill
Kennedy could do the stunt? What did It
matter If Bill Kennedy was a Scotchman?
The chief designer didn't think of the na
tionality. He was looking for figures. So
the arrangements were made and Bill Ken
nedy, the Scot, waa to represent Ireland on
Great Britain's float. The chief designer
had figured out a nice harmony ticket, he
Imagined, If he Imagined anything at all.
Yea, Something; nolaar.
Things worked along smoothly until the
matter leaked out and of course the report
was carried by the wind to Tom Brennan,
the Irish league man. John Power, tjie Irish
office holder, P. C. Hcafy, the Irish under
taker and politician and others of the same
Was there anything doing? Well these
men buckled on their shllalahs and hustled
out to find O. W. Wattles. Fortunately
for the banker he waa out of sight at the
time,, and after learning no one was re
sponsible they laid it on to poor old Gould
Diets, whose shoulders carried It all. Diets
sidestepped this combination, however, and
turned the responsibility over to Gus
Rense, who also has troubles each year. Of
course Gus Rentie was responsible. He
said so. He loved the Irish better than
any people. He wanted to compliment
them. He wanted the Irish to take the
glory of the Great Britain float. He had
In hla mind's eye, he told the committee,
a man of the ; appearance of Chauncey
Olcott, an Irish gentleman. He wanted to
fix up a float that would show the. Irish
as he always Is, every day. a gentleman.
But Mr. Rense could not find a suit like
the suits worn by Mr. Olcott and so had
to do the next best thing. He had
to figure on dressing tip Bill Kennedy as
an Irishman that would tickle the crowd.
But Mr. Rense excuses were like, water
on a duck's back In that delegation. The
excuses didn't go at all. That's why In
place of the Irishman the English Lion
will do service In the Great Britain float
Wednesday night and that's why Bill
Kennedy Is still Scotch.

In marked contraM with the atnrmy
session of last week the meeting of the
coonty commissioners Tuesday morning was
rnlm and peaceful. All of the commis
sioners seemed to have caught the carnival
spirit from frequent expeditions down the
King's Highway and they were In an un
usually good humor.
First of all the board rald the salaries
of a number of county employes, who
have been clamoring for an Increase for
several months. The Janitors and night en
gineer were raised to $fi0 a month Instead
of $50 and 165 the present scale. The two
stenographers In the county judges office
were raised from $ to $75 a month. The
salary of Guy C. Fleming, deputy register
of deeds, waa Increaaed from $72.60 to $St
and the farmer and ambulance driver at
the county farm were raised from $3 to $30
The board also voted to close the court
house Tuesday and Thursday afternoon on
account of Ak-Sar-Ben parades.
E. E. E. Rldgway, the Inventor of a der
rick for taking voting machines out of the
cases and returning them again, waa before
the board with a communication asking
that the county Invest In some of the
machines. He offered them for $50 efich.
He claims that one man with a derrick
can do the work of four men without It.
The matter will be taken up later.
The board adjourned to ,meet again

Victor Bern, a Greek, who talks very

his wits Tuesday morning when he found
out how near he had come to being mar

the misunderstanding. He applied to Dave
Fitch, probate clerk in the county Judge's
office, for a license.
"How old are you?" asked Mr. Fitch,
eyeing him suspiciously.
"Twenty years," was the answer.
"You'll have to have the consent of your
father If you are under 21."
"I'm 25. but I look like 13." said" Bern.
"How old are you, anyway?" asked Fitch

much disgusted. The roar of laughter
from the bystanders almost broke up a

OUR LETTER SOX.
Tale of the Chicago Ranch.
CHICAGO, Sept. 2. To the Editor of
The Bee: I write this to you demanding
a square deal in answer to your publica
tion of Tuesdsy, September B. 1906, and
request that this letter be published In
full, as It states the facts, and your pub
lication referred to above docs not slate
the facts. The facts are as follows:
In May, 1904, previous to the going into
effect of the Kinkald act, 1 was employed
by several different persons who were
desirous of procuring homesteads under
the Klnkaid act. The first of them that
spoke to me about the act was Mr. Cole- ,
man. afterward .president of the ranch ,
company, ana snoriiy nunwaius 4 ;
called to a motlnn at hla hoiin. whore I
met four or flv of his frlcnda and ac- !
. . . .11 - at n tha
qua.mances , ;
employ of the Ia Trohe. 8teel and Cou-
Pier company The r ult f l ..t meet- ;
ing was nnmner nif-iius: v wun.ii ni"i
of his friends were present to the num
ber of substantially ten, as I now recol
lect It. They all being busy at their
work oh salary, and not having the time
to go themselves to look up a location,
and all desiring to file as near together as
possible, they each and all agrfeefl to em
ploy me to go out to Nebraska, visit the
different land offices, examine the lands
and recommend to them two or more loca
tions. If possible, 'that they, might ex
amine, where they might all file together.
They collectively pald me sufficient to
cover all expenses and I went to Ne
braska about the middle of May and vis
ited Valentine, Crawford, Harrison and
Alliance, examined the records In the land
offices, hired livery , rigs and examined
and recommended two locations, one near
Harrison and one near Marsland. Others
then were anxious to get homesteads, re
sulting in 'tltelr making a contract with
me, each ope to pay me a locating fee, I
to go with them and point out the land
I had recommended and assist them In
making out and filing their papers at the
One week before June 28, that being the
time when the' law went Into effect, I
went with the parties to Nebraska, showed
them the Innd near Harrison and through
a local party we we,re shown the lind near
Wayside, which they, upon Inspection, de
cided "was satisfactory. We then went
fttrect to Alliance and waited until the
opening of the land office. The livery man
wjio drove the parties to the Wayside land
Informed them that he believed they would
not he able to hold their land, pointing
out to them where a sheep man had bcn
driven out of the country and his building
burned. The parties, while at, Alliance,
were a number of times warned that they,
being strangers In the country, would pot
be allowed to hold land and were also ad
vised by parties there that they would not
be able to get In line to flle on the land,
and advised that they better go to the
county seat, where the land was, and mall
their papers down. The parties, however,
stayed In Alliance and organized the line
the night before and stood In line all night
and were the first to flle on the morning
of,-the 28th. Fifteen filings were made, all
In a body.
A majority of them returned to Chicago,
and some of them remained In Nebraska
and have been there ever since. After their
return to Chicago they held a meeting, de
termined to hold their land against the
cattle men, and they agreed to stand to
gether and help protect each other and
fence their land all Into one body and buy
some stock and put on and hire a man to
take care of the stock and keep the fence
up. I advised them that In the event of
their so doing, each would be liable for
all debts that might be contracted; that
the best way was to organise a stock com
pany under the laws of Nebraska ant) each
man subscribe for a certain amount of
stock, which would be the limit of their
personal liability and two mont after
they filed ' they formed a corporation known
as the Chicago Ranch, paid Iq their money
and fenced their land by running a fence
around the outside of It all, and each man
leased to the company all of hla land, ex
cepting twenty acres which each "reserved
upon which to byild his house and put his
Improvements, the lease covering a perloa
of five years with a provision that the
company could take off building or Im
provements, which they might put on the
land during the leasehold, at the ex
piration of the lease, the company agreeing
to take oft the improvements and surrender
possession to the homesteader at, his ex
piration of the five years. The lease also
provided that as payment of rent for said
land the company would Issue to the land
ownera $600 worth of stock in the Ranch
company. Each homesteader paid for his
house and Improvements on his own land
snd paid In an assessment of 1150 per
month to pay a man for watching the fence
and protecting the property.
While the fence waa being built malicious
parties deliberately cut and .destroyed It,
so much so that the parties employed to
build the fence spent -more time repairing
it than they did in originally building lu
One of the houses was burned to the
ground and three others were at other
times set on Tire. 1
A large amount' of money waa spent!
during the laat yen- in repairing the
fence, which waa constantly being de
stroyed, and thia spring and summer places
from a quarter to a third of a mile long
have repeatedly been torn donn and in
I some Instances been entirely carried away.
Home of the homesteaders got discouraged
, and sold their stock, buildings and re
I llnquishments to others. In October and
; November, lis, the government, without

homesteaders each and all demanded a
hearing, and none of them have as yet
been given a heurlng. These homestead
ers were all men of very moderate nvans,
obliged to work from day to day for their
dally sustenance snd support of their fam
ilies, and In order to do that have been
obliged to spend most of their time
away from their land to earn money
with which to place Improvements
on their land. These homesteaders have

discouraged in the Idea of maintaining n
fpnee around the outside of their land and
some two months ago decided to dissolve
the corporation and have sold offthe fence
and Implements and toolsat auction to the
highest bidder among their number, only
stockholders being hllowed to purch,,
and each homesteader will now fence his
own land, hoping that In the fc.ture lit
