Eailroads in East Gobble Com
missions as Jobbers an I West
J era Dealers High and Dry,
Says Defense Council.
(From a SLff Correspondent
Lincoln, Oct 12. (Special.) The
small coal dealer in the country
' towns faces a proposition in handling
; hard coal that is becoming serious.
1 according to Vice President Georjre
: Coupland of the State Council of De
' fense.
It appears that in the government
arrangements made with the owners
: of the coal mine of the east which
. produce the bul of anthracite coal
the railroads, which own the bulk of
these mines, were permitted to sell
coal at $4 per ton. However, the
; entire product of the railroad mines
" was contracted for by the industries
in that section of .the country.
The remainder of the mines, or
practically what is left of the hard
coal producing companies; are per
mitted to act as jobbers, v The gov
ern ment allows these jobbers in hard
coal to sell at a profit of 75 cents per
ton over the mine price of $4 per ton
set by the government: ;
. With tht. coa. from the mines
owned by the Pennsylvania and other
railroads taken by the industries un
der a previous contract the other pro
ducers, known a the Big Five com
panies, have taken advantage of the
fact that they are not only producers,
but jobbers als 3, and take the extra
75 cents per ton as jobbers,, leaving
the big companies in cities like Oma
ha and Lincoln ir this state, which
have always furnished coal to the
dealers in small .towns, Jo face the
proposition of handling loal without
a profit because the Big Five com-
. panics have already taken the 75 cents
per ton allowed the jobber.
s Therefore, the citizen in the small
town who has a hard coal stove has
' no coal to burn unless he has seized
time by the forelock and laid in his
supply beforehand. ,
