COAL ENOUGH FOR
KICKING HORS,E CAUSED MIX-UP.
E. B. Barrows Expects Further
Prices Lower In Drattleboro Than In
Most Places, Although 50 Cents More
Than a Year Aqo.
Edward D. Barrows, coal dealer, re
turned Friday from a visit of several
Jays In Now York city, Scranton, Pa., and
other cities In the coal district. He re
turned with the news that the present
.shortage throughout New England proD
ably would bo relieved after Nov. 1.
Druttleboro has not felt the pinch as
Bharply as other towns and cities In
the northeastern section of the country
.as Mr. Barrows has In his sheds a sup
ply sufllclent to last until after Nov. 1.
provided he Is not overwhelmed with
orders. L. B. Yauvey, the other local
dealer, has on hand a small amount of
nut nonl onlv. Local users are fortunate
abso In being able to get coal at prices
lower than those current in Boston and
oUirr cities. Kec coal Is selling here for
J8.25, chestnut for $8.50 and stove for
$8.25. This Is about DO cents a ion nigner
than the nrlces of a year ago.
Hinsdale Is without coal, and while a
reporter of The Phoenix was In Mr,
Barrows's office Wednesday morning a
Hinsdale resident came In and ordered
a load, something almost unprecedented
Mr. Barrows telephoned to the Spencer
Hardware company In Kcene, who deal
in this commodity, while the reporter
was there, and was informed that coal
vtas selling for $10.25 a ton, with 25 cents
discount If paid for on delivery. He then
called Up the Howard Hardware com
pany of Bellows Palls and was told that
In that town coal was selling for the
same price as in Brattleboro, that small
quantities were being received at nor
inal prices and that the Bellows Falls
dealer was not -worrying. In Putney the
shortage is serious and there Is a very
small supply on hand.
Mr. Barrows received word WeJnes
day morning that he could obtain the
three sizes of coal from a New London
wholesaler for $7.51, f. o. b. cars New
London. The freight from New London
to this town is $1 and that would bring
the cost to the local dealer to $8.51.
which is more than he is1 selling It for
at retail at the present time. Another
dealer offered egg and nut coal at $7.40,
f. o. b. cars New London, which would
bring the wholesale price to nearly the
same amount as tne otner uealers prices,
Uoth wholesalers in their letters said
that Mr. Barrows would have to wire
an Immediate reply If he desired
The shortage of coal Is laid to various
causes, the chief reason being the short
agp of cars because of the big grain
crop. Another reason Is the four month'
lay-off of the mine workers last winter
ano spring, when the supply was cur
uuiea. according to the mine owners
the supply has not caught up with the
shortage caused then. At present vast
quantities are being shipped by way of
the great lakes, but when these waters
begin to close In with Ice the shipments
will cease and will be diverted to New
Jimgiand. The lakes probably will begl
to freeze over about Nov. 1.
Mr. Barrows brought homo a copy of
uie .-cramon Tribune-ReDUbl can
Oct. 3, which gave the price of chestnut
coai as J5.15 at the mines. With
freight from Pennsylvania to Ttr.ittirfvn
ro, the price is brought to $8.50, approx
imately the wholesale price of coal ship

Fists Flew and Blood Flowed
Encounter Lively Scene at
During the Night.
A flst-flRhtlng and cutting affray at
the railroad station Tuesday evening
bout 8.30 o'clock resulted in tho arrest
of four men. Two others escaped, one
f whom Chlef-of-Pollce George Wilson
anxious to arrest on the charge of
assault with a deadly weapon. Tho
four mon arrested appeared before the
municipal court Wednesday morning and
pleaded guilty td the charge of drunk
enness. Three paid their lines and the
ther went to the county Jail In New-
fane to serve a 20-days' sentence.
Chlef-of-Pollce Wilson and Policeman
Ellis Worden were called to tho station
a hurry Tuesday evening nnd on ar
riving there found three men, all intox
icated, fighting among themselves and
another lying on the platform with a
freight brakeman sitting on his chest.
Two of the men were badly battered
nd blood was streaming down the face
the third. Railroad employes told
the officers what had happened and the
four were arrested, but not without
trouble, One of the drunks tried to es
cape, but Policeman Worden chased him
half way across the bridge and caught
him. The entire quartet resisted tho
efforts of tho authorities.
The disturbance began when the six
Intoxicated men gathered in a group.
One was looking for a fight and his
challenges were not long unanswered.
A companion sailed into him nnd there
was "something doing." Miles Cough-
lln, who also was under the Influence of
liquor, stood apart from the fighting
crowd, but suddenly one of the men
reached at him with a knife and In
flicted a long, deep gash under his right
eye and across his nose. Coughlln at
tempted to fight, but his assailant es
caped. Railroad men, residents of the
town and persons waiting for trains had
gathered about the combatants and
when Coughlln was cut they started af
ter the man with the knife.
Daniel Doyle of this town nnd several
other men chased him around the rail
road station, but the fugitive ran in
back of the Swift company's beef-house
and escape 1.
New London brakeman who had
made an extra run hero that afternoon
was standing watching the other men in
their fracas when one of them reached
htm with a sockdolager straight from
the shoulder. The brakeman clinched
his assailant and they fell to the plat
form and rolled over, the railroad men
landing on top, where he remained un
til the police arrived. When the chief
and the patrolman reached the station
four men quickly were placed under ar
rest and another had slipped into the
A peculiar feature of the affair was
that the men were not together previous
to the fight, but came together by
chance at the station. Two of them
were friends, but the others were not
when the quartet arrived at the lock
up under the town hall the man with
the cut and bleeding face fancied that
one of the arrested men was the man
who did the cutting and he Jumped up
on him. The officers had difficulty In
separating the combatants. Dr. Thomas
Rice was summoned and dressed Cough
lin's wounds. The men were not locked
in cells and the officers hardly had left
the place when three of the men fancied
that Vernon C. Parker was the man who
had done the cutting and they rushed
at him. He escaped their drunken fury
by locking himself In a cell. One of
the drunks filled a pall with water and
threw It over Parker and followed It
with several more. In desperation the
water-soaked man lifted his mattress
from the cot In the cell and held It be
fore the barred door for protection. The
police returned and saved him from fur
ther trouble by locking the men up.
Chief Wilson brought the men before
the municipal court Wednesday morning
In pairs, not wishing to take a chance
with all four at one time Vernon C.
Parker, a paper hanger, made a sorry
looking spectacle. He pleaded guilty be
fore Judge W. R, Daley and was assess
ed $5 and costs, the costs amounting
to $4.79. He sent a hurry call by tele
phone to his brother, who lives In town,
nnd his line was paid. Dennis Riley,
who has been working In Westmoreland
for Crosby & Parker of this town,
pleaded guilty nnd was assessed $5 and
costs, the costs amounting to $3.79. John
Bowler, laborer, and Miles Coughlln, la
borer, were brought In together. Cough
lln's eye and right cheek were covered
with a bandage and Bowler's nose was
cut and his clothing was stained with
blood. Bowler was lined $5 and costs
of $3.79, which he paid. Coughlln had
been working on E. C. Crosby's build
ing until Tuesday, when he left. Judge
Daley asked him If he had money with
which to pay his fine and he replied, "I
did have, but I wasted It all away on
booze." Coughlln co,uld not remember
tho occurrences of the previous night,
but persons who were at the station say
he was the quietest man of the crew.
by a curious twist of fate, he was the
only man to go to Jail.

Joy of young womanhood, left for their
rooms for the night a voice from tho
head bf the stairs was heard In warning
tones; "Hush, there's a baby up here."'
Through the courtesy of Mrs. Lynn
Fullam, who now owns the old home,
the girls had the pleasure of visiting
the old familiar rooms the following
morning. Just before the first girl left
on the 9.30 a. m, train Clarence Wright
appeared with camera In hand, which
completed their every wish. At 3.30 tho
last good-bye was said and every one
who had been present at the reunion
felt that they had had an uplift which
would remain through life. Nothing In
this world pays better than helping
girls to noble womanhood. "Tho hand
that rocks the cradlo rules the world."
