Second Day of Battle for Delegates Sees Even
Greater Activity on Part of Roose?
velt, and La Follette Also.
Increased Cordiality for President?Meet:ng Piaces in Some
Cases Too Small?"Stuff and Nonsense!" Colonel's
Rejoinder to Some of His Critic sm.
With President Taft rivalling Colonel Roosevelt for strenuous
campaigning, and Senator La Follette. too. as hard at work as possible.
the battle for New Jersey's Republican Presidential convention dele?
gates was continued yesterday from early in the morning until late at
The President traversed middle Jersey. arousing greater and
greater cordiality wherever he went, while Colonel Roosevelt stumped
the southern part of the state and Senator La Follette visited coast
towns principally.
Mr. Taft told his hearers in the cities that it would be unwise to
give Mr. Roosevelt a third term, and he discussed Canadian reciprocity
in the country districts, where farmers predominated in his audiences,
telling them he believed it would have been a good thing and he could
not change his views on that subject. or any other, "just to gain votes,
as Mr. Roosevelt has done"
Mr. Roosevelfs second day in New Jersey was a repctition of the
first. He was greeted by big crowds everywhere in the six counties
and three Congress districts he visited.
"Stuff and nons-nse." was his reply to the President's assertion
that the recall of judicial decisions might lead to the repeal of the
Thirteenth, Fourteenth and Fifteenth amendments and the disfran
chisement of the negro.
In his speeches at Newark, Asbury Park and Long Branch Senator
La Follette placed the blame for the present deveiopment of lllegal
trusts on the shoulders of Colonel Roosevelt.
After his talk at Asbury Park the Wisconsin Senator was asked by
a local preacher if he favored prohibition. He answered "No/' and
made the clergyman promise to put the same question to Mr. Taft and
Colonel Roosevelt.

That Little 25 Cent Jump in the Price of
Anthracite Only an Expenmental Twist
on the Screws cf Monopoly.
Big Dividends on Anthracite Roads Due Almost Entirely
to High Rates on Household Necessity?Gov?
ernment Figures Show Extortion.
Coal merchants received yesterday formal notice that, beginning
June 1, the anthracite operators would charge them 25 cents more a ton
for domestic sizes. The Tribune has shown that in addition to paying
'for the 51 j per cent increase in wages to the miners recently agreed
. upon this advance in price will add $6,000,000 a year to the already
! tremendous profits of the anthracite operators, making them something
: hke $47,000,000 annually.
And yet the statement was made yesterday in behalf of the oper
1 ators that the public was "heing let off easy" with an increase of only
! 25 cents a ton. and it was intimated that this increase was the pre
1 cursor of a series of advances to allow the operators to increase the
' price of their product in proportion to the increase in price of other
: necessities.
The prices of anthracite are agreed upon in advance. The T- ibtlAf
has pointed out, hy the members of an invincible combination of e;ght
railroads, which own or buy outright 85 per cent of all the anthracite
marketed. Thc5e ei^ht railroads not only reap practically all the profits
of the operators. indicated abov,, but by exorbitant freight rates on
anthracite between the coal fields qnd tidewater they annually make a
second "killing." In 1909, for example, the Delaware. Lackawanna &
Western Railro_d. which carries a greater proportion of anthracite to
general merchandise than any of its seven partners. paid a dividend of
35 per cent.
It is the officers of these roads who want the public to understand
I that it _hould feel ,thankful at not having to put up with a greater
