Result of the Cable Strike on the
Coal We Use
lenty or lr. But the iiiBlify &t I p
to the Wtandard An lufrrlor
4rale from Nome Farm of
The Coal Valley Mining company is
succeeding admirably in keeping the lo
cal market supplied pending the strike,
and the consrqucnt suspension of opera
tions at the Cable mines, and while there
don't appear on the surface any evidence
of a coal famine, the quality cf the stuff
some people in the city are forced to put
up with is such as to lead them to appre
ciate all the more the product of our
mines near home, and pity those in
other sections of the state if they can get
no better than Rock Island is now being
"The truth of the matter," said one
coal dealer this morning, "is tbat opera
tors all over the state are constantly com
municating with the Rock I-land dealers
and attempting to put off on them a
grade of coal which they cannot dispose
of themselves. The coal has no heat-
producing qualities, and at this time of
the year is not deslr-ible. But the tratb
of the matter is, we are obliged to take
what we get just now, and while now
and then a car of spiendid
coal enmes in, the bulk of it is not such
as any dealer can consientiously recom
mend. The worst of it is the coal deal
ers are getting the blast of the blame.
I've gotton so that an ordinary cussing
don't bother me a particle. I look for it
from the moment a msn to whom I have
sold coalcnter9 the door, but all we can
do is to make the sisme explanation I have
given you, and let it go for all it is worth.
"I think; however, that the-people
realizs that the Coal Valley Mining com -pany
is doing the best possible to keep
the market supplied, and a9 long as we
can keep prices diwn I don't apprehend
that anything serious will come of the
kicks. With the assurance that the rates
will not be advanced ar.d that we will
have plenty of cohl. turn as it is, I think
we will get along, but there are so many
in the coal buisness this winter, big as is
the demand, dealers are paying just
what they are retailing for. Why, only
yesterday a mine operator offered me
coal at 25 cents a bushel bicbtr than it
is delivered to me at, while what we get
is put down to us at what wc get for it.
We are simj ly eccc mmodating our cus
tomers, and holding cur trade this win
ter, in hopeful anticipation of better days
both for ourselves and our customers."
Supt. Lee. of the Cable mines, was in
the city this morning aud stated to an
AnGi's r prtsenative that there was ab
solutely nothing new in the status of af
fairs at the Cable mine, and that there
was no immediate prospect of a settle
ment of the existing d faculties between
company and men.

The Rock Island democracy will be
particularly cratified to know that it will
be represented at the meeting of the na
tional democratic committee at Washing-
ton next Thurfday, the 21st inst, to de
termine the time and place of the next

Illinois member, Erskine M. Phelps, of

dentials with lion. Delos P. Phelps, of
Monmouth, chairman of the Illinois state
democratic committee, tnd that gentle
man being unable to go, honored Con
gressman Ben T. Cable by forwarding

will appreciate, but an evidence of the
regard in which he is held by the democ
racy of the entire slate.
