Enactment of the "net-weight package
law" is again being urged by Col. W. C.
Haskell, superintendent of weights and
measures. He transmitted a report to the
District Commissioners yesterday, setting
forth that the bill pending in Congress
would be the most effective means
remedying local conditions in respect to
the sale of coal.
Col. Haskell said In his report that It
was impossible under existing laws to
protect the purchasing public from being
deceived in measures. He says that whUe
the package Is supposed to represent a
certain standard, it is generally short in
Under the present laws, which allow
the dealer to make use of an indefinite
measure, the poor frequently have been
mulcted when buying coal in small quan
titles, he adds. In some cases they have
paid for their coal at the rate of J1S.50 a
ton. f ol. Haskell states in his report
that these evils enn be corrected under a
"net-weight package law," and recom
mends that the Commissioners urge Its
