Nos. 1, 2 and 3, Called on Man in

An extremely shrewd pleco of real
estate manlpulutlon.'has Just come to
light and tho Uulletln, through tho
kindness of one who knew about tho
whole matter, Is ablo to give the de
tails, though the nnmes must bo with
held for reasons that will become ap
parent us tho story develops.
It seems that there Is a man In this
town who has a pleco of property iti
the suburbs which ho values at $10,000
For a year or more past, he has placul
this In tho hands of real estate men
with the order to sell at 10,000. The
property was sold several different
times but the owner would always luck
out at the last moment, preferring to
hold on for a little while longer.
This modo of procedure i the part
of tho owner of the property mado tho
real estate men tired nnd they resolveJ
to get some money for their troublo In
attempting to sell tho land, so three of
the number put their heads together
and this was tho result.
Real Estate Man No. 1 called on the
owner ot the land and secured a thirty
day option, the price to be $10,000.
Fifteen days later, Real Estate Man Nu.
I culled on the owner and offered hi in
$11,000. He Immediately refused the

ter was said. Not long utter this, Renl

fered $12,000. Again the refusal to

Just a very short tlmo before the
option rnn out, Real Kstate Man No.
2 again appeared on the scene, this
tlmo with an offer of $12,500. A New
York capitalist who had decided to
setlo down in the Islands hnd seen the
ptoperty nnd decided that he must luue
It. He was, therefore, willing to piy
tho sum mentioned.
Tho land owner bit. He told No. 2
that No. 1 held an option on tho proper
ty fur $I04J00 and that ho couldn't go
back of thaN Then came tho fine work.
No. 2 advised the man to go to No. 1
and offer him $500 for the option. Ho
would certainly be willing to sell at
that llguro and even upon surrendering
this amount, he u'htild still bo $2,000
ahead on the deal.
No. 1 was seen and the offer made
and accepted. Tho land owner rush 1
back to No. 2 to close the sale but when
ho g(t there. No. 2 simply smiled anl
said: "The New York man has chang

was reached only a few minutes befoie

Coal the Navy Uhch.
Tho United States Navy uses but one
lilnd ot mal unless naval vessels ore
compelled to coal in foreign ports. The
PoeahontuB mines of West Virginia
supply the navy nt a cost of $1.50 per
ton f. o. b. Pocahontns roal In the
government coal sheds costs laid down
here n little over $7 per ton.
The special ndvnntngcs claimed for
Pocahontas coal Is that It only makes
three per cent nsh and Is almost smolto-
less. Its steaming radius ton for ton
is about one-third greater than any
other loal mined In the world. Tlili
fact hns been established by repeated
experiments made by the Navy D--partment.
It Is estimated that there Is
enough of this coal In the West Virgin
ia mines to supply the Navy for many
hundieds of years.

FOR ORIENTAL GOODS
The United States Government has
made arrangements which will permit
Importers of Oriental goods on th'
Mainland to receive their shipment

necessity for examining all Oriental

caused this delay.

months, hss been ordered to Hongkong
