Arcoli. Ill, Jan 10 Aicola's fuel famine
is brok n An Illinois Central coil train,
consisting of sixteen ears, bound for Chl
iaj,o stopped here this raorning and was
immediate! t untreated by a p irty of 2fl
or Sw) citizens
The Central company was notified that
the coil would not be allow id to be moved
out of town, and the local agent was of
ftrcil the mono) for K Ile telegraphed
ht idquirtcrs. and thv refused to sell,
v hereupon the train was immediatelv lon
liscatcd Active in the part were the pastors of
the Presbv terian and Free Methodist
churches', the presidents of tho banks and
one policeman
The train soon w is surrounded bv hun
dreds of wagons waiting to load 'I he coal
was distributed in ton lets to the most
needv Faeh load was weighed and a strict
atcount kept in hopes of making satisfac
tor settlement with the owners.
Great exclttmnit has pievalled all di.
Ilu-lness his hem practical! suspentiid for
a wttk on account of the coal famine.
There his been much suffering among tho
poorer classes
Whin this morning's train stopped i
crowd of several hundred persons were soon
about the train, cl imoring for coal A con
sultation was held and S U Woodworth,
proprietor of the electric light plant, ten
dered the local central agent mone for the
coal on behalf of the people. This was re
fused H this time the more desperate had
climbed Into the can and were loading
their wagons Farmers offering their flrht
loads of corn to town were besieged with
requests to haul coal Manv agreed to do
so; others refused, and their wagons' wore,
taktn and turned Into dravs
Colonel J. R Heggs, president of till
First National Hank, acted as "mnrshal of
the day and endeavored to keep the wagons
in line. Thomas Lvons, president of the
State Itank. the Reverend Elward Haech,
the Heverend William Prout, Policeman
Walter Craft and manv influential citizens
were prominnil in the raid
Fo- seme reason the loral dealers hive
been unable to get coal for tho last month
and fully one-hilf the people tn town wire
out of fuel. This condition made them des
perate and persons of all classes were glad
to avail themselves of this opportunity and
aided in the confiscation.
To-night the wagons are still hauling, but
out of the entire train load there now re
mains only a little more than one car This
will be haulid beforo the wagons stop.
Those who were unable to get wagons
this morning hauled little bigs or coal In
wheelbarrows and push carts The ver
poor were there with their baskets.
Taken all In all. it has been the most ex
citing di in the hlstor of Areola. Preach
ers and saloonkeepers stood united In ap
proval of the methods followed.
