Potlstllle, Pa.. JiinJk1.--A "right-about-face"
attitude of the anthracite
coal trust with important developments
to coal consumers h indicated by move
ments here today.
Representatives of financial interests
In tho anthracite business from Now

Morgan syndicate, are here conferring
with Frank C. Reese, well-known coal
exnert. who for vears has represented
nntinnal interests of consumers nnd who
recently completed nn exhnUstive inves

Talk of nationalization of the nnthra
cite mines by Senators Caldcr and
Edge, with propositions of new laws
providing Jail sentences for profiteers,
together with a proposition for n real
investigation by Congress whereby the
lid will be taken off the nnthrncite bus
iness, has alarmed some of the owners
of anthracite securities.
Even more nlarmtng to those having
big sums invested is the fact that en

are demanding that the Government

water-power dexclopmeiits which would
affect a lnrgn nnthrncite tonnage.
Situation Critical, Says Kce.se
Itopsc refused to reveal results of to
dav'h conference, but snid:
"There is no doubt the anthracite
situation Is criticnl nnd that something
must be done to acri disaster. The
operators have not contented themselves
with asking for war prices, but are de
manding from consumers prices which
were never dreamed of during the war.
Wages in nearly all industries nre fall
ing and these coal prices arc being met
only with dlfliculty by consumers.
On the face of this we nre met with
threats of still greater increases next
"There will Dc no increases In nn

"Declarations of I'nlted States Sen
ators Edge nnd Caldcr that there is a
combination in the anthracite business
can be proved right here. Pottsville is

A dozen different coal lompnnies are
at work here, but consumers in this

Refutes Operators' Statements
"Statements made in Phi'adelphia by
anthracite operators that the cost price
of domestic sizes of nnthrncite at the
mines aggregates !?S a ton or more are
absurd and are not deceiving the public
When the United States Senate inves
ligation was made here two years ago
President W J Richards, nf the Phil

Co., declared the average cost per ton
of anthracite, including .steam and do
mestic .sizes, was ?3."i6. The commit

"Since then the miners have hnd an

the nnthraeite industry and lately has
obtained important data of the utmost
importance. His visitors today ex
