Eighteen charming joung women from Richmond, Va. noted for its beautiful girls, and eighteen fine young men from the same vicinity, have gone on record to prove the truth of the above quotation It is as it should be, the same today as it was ages ago, and for unknown centuries to come the joung will icek their mates in the same old way The world loves a lover, and Washington today is happy over the fact that the joung men and women from our neighboring city, who will go down life's highway hand in hand, have chosen the Capital as their starting point Long life to them!

As stated exclusively In The Washing ton Herald several weeks ago, the cost of bituminous coal will be materially ad vanced during the month of April. An official of one of the largest coal com panies In the District last night stated that the advances would range from 15 to 43 cents a ton. depending on the grade of coal. The advance will become effec tive April L Operators of mines along the lines of the Baltimore and Ohio and Pennsjlvanla Railroads have lrcreased their prices on bituminous coal from 15 to Z5 dents per gross ton The mine owners In the Southern coal fields along the lines of the Chesapeake and Ohio and the Nor folk and Western Railroads have in creased their prices from M to 3 cents per gross ton In addition to the greater Increase of the Southern mine owners the Cheti peake and Ohio and Norfolk and West em Railroads h&ve Increased the freight rate 17 cents per ton over last jear, mak ing the new freight rate Into Washington from these regions 1 S2 per gross ton The old rate of 1LK5 a ton from the mines along the lines of the Baltimore and Ohio and Pennsjlvanla Railroads re mains the same. The new freight rates from the Southern mines will become ef fective April 1'. Since the introduction of the Southern coals In Washington In 1S93 the freight rates of thee two lines have been the same as those charged by the Baltimore and Ohio and Pennsjlvanla Railroads and always have been based on gross tonnage. No reason Is given by the rail roads for the advance. Local dealers have purchased most of their soft coal from these mines They now will be forced to stand the Increased cost of soft coal at the mines and the 17- eent advance In the freight rates on these lines, as It Is doubtful If the mines along the Baltimore and Ohio and Pennsylvania roads can furnish them with all the coal they will need to meet the local demand. They can obtain only limited quantities from the Northern mines, and will be compelled to get the bulk of their supply from the Southern fields, despite the higher freight rate, or seek a substitute. Local dealers claim to see In the action of the Southern railroads, which are al leged to be subsidiaries of the Baltimore and Ohio and Pennsylvania roads, a plot to drive Southern coal from the local market The reason given by the mine owa ers for the advance In the prices of coal is that they have been producing' coal at too low a price There appears to be a concert of action among them to force an advance In the prices of soft coal all over the countrj, according- to local dealers. New River coal, as the Southern prod uct Is called, is used extensively in heating apartment houses and In gen erating power and light.
