Philadelphia, Pa., Sept. 3. Attorney
General McReynold's first and most
important attack on the "hard coal
trust" was begun here yesterday with
the filling of a civil suit for the dis
solution of the Reading company's
control of coal mining and coal carry
ing railroads the most potential com
bination in the anthracite fields.
The Reading company with its sub
sidiary and allied corporations, includ
ing the Central Railroad of New Jer
sey, and certain of their officers and
directors, are charged with violating
both the Sherman anti-trust law and
the commodities clause of the inter
state commerce act, in an attempt to
monopolize the production and trans
portation of anthracite.
This combination, controlling "at the
present time 63 per cent of the entire
unmined deposits of anthracite and
marketing about 30 per cent cf the
annual supply, will own or control in
time, if not dissolved, the attorney
general warns, "every ton of com
mercially available anthracite known
I. AW AI.ONE OFFERS BELIEF.
The importance of the suit is em
phasized with the declarations that in
this case "only the law can afford re
lief." It is pointed out that in almost
every other industry it is as least
possibly for a monopoly to be broken
by the influx of fresh capital attracted
by high profits, but against a monopoly
of hard coal, the supply of which is
limited, there can be no such protection.
The following corporations and In
dividuals are named as defendants:
Reading company, Philadelphia and
Reading Railway company, Philadel
phia and Reading Coal and Iron com
pany, Central Railroad Company rf
New Jersey, Lehigh and Wilkesbarre
Coal company, Lehigh Coal and Navi

Northern Railroad company, Lehigh

FOR BREAKIP OF COMBINATION.

dissolve the Reading company's con

of New Jersey, of the Philadelphia and
Reading Railway company, of the
Philadelphia and Reading Coal and
Iron company, of the Schuylkill Navi
