COAL FAMINE IS IMMINENT
Small Iowa Towns Short of Fuel and
Rash Orders Are nelna- Har
MARSHALLTOWN, la., Jan. l.-(Spe-clal.)
Unless relief comes soon many of
the smaller towns of central Iowa will be
face to face with a coal famine within a
few days. The supplies of coal at Tama,
Garwln, Conrad, Whltton, Glfford, Lawn
Hill, Radcllffe and Ellsworth, are so short
that the situation .is beginning to become
critical. The large dealers of this city
are helpless to aid the smaller dtalers of
this city, because much of their coal has
been confiscated lately by the Iowa Cen
tral and the Northwestern. Coal consigned
to tho dealers of the towns mentioned has
also been confiscated by the railroad. The
Iowa Central seized twenty-five cars In
the local yards yesterday. It Is charged
that the Central has plenty ot coal for Its
own use, but that it 13 seizing it for its
sister road, the Minneapolis & St. Louis,
whose supply has been cut short owing to
the strike. Orders have been Issued by
the Central to rush forward all Minneapolis

freight excepting live stock and perishable

coal to last much more than a week, and
It is being given out in small quantities.
Dealers here who have a line of yards
out that way, state they have from seventy-five
to 100 cars of e.oa'. enroute from
the east which have been on the road foi
three weeks, but can receive no assur
ances from the rallrouds how soon the
coal can be delivered. The bieak In the
cold weather, when the mercury stood at

rather embarrassing to the electric light
plant, which has been short of fue: for
three weeks and lias had to depend upon
the local supply. This has run short and
the company has been forced to shut

agent, claiming to represent a r fire, life
and accident Insurance company of Perth,
Scotland, with a headquarters, office at
Philadelphia, has been cleaning up a good
sum of money In this vicinity by writing
Insurance. . One- of the insured waited
several weeks , for his . policy to
come, but it failed to show up
and ha opened a correspondence with
the head office at Philadelphia. The
manager there stated that McCullom had
no authority to write Insurance for that
company and that they had received no
money from him for premiums. Several
others started investigations With the
same result, and then they put the officers
on his track. He was found at the home
of his mother in Miner county, where his
wife and family were also staying for
Christmas week. McCullom was arrested
and on his examination wus bound over
to the term of circuit court In February in
$300 bonds. He was arreted again on the
charge of obtaining money under false pre
tenses, and was placed under the same
bonds. McCullom Is thought to be tha
