Airao COAL DEALERS REFUSE TO TESTIFY TO GRANDJORY Stand on Their Constitutional Rights and Are Now Explaining Matters to the Court. QUESTIONS RELATED T0HI8H PRICES Attorney Says People Had Better Put Up With Extortion Than to Trample on Prlvleges Granted by Great Constitution. If the increase In coal prices of late months was justified, it Is a pe culiar fact that the owners of the coal yards and representatives of the mine interests have refused to tell the grand Jury why the price wa raised 01 ' to answer any except trivial questions. The recent indignation of the pub lic in regard to the high Dries of coal has at last resulted in an official Investigation of the matter. Yester day, in answer to summons to ap pear before ths territorial trrand jury, a number of officials of the American Fuel company, which con trols the coal fields at Los Cerrillos and in the region of Gallup, W. H. nann ana jonn Heaven, the local coal dealers, appeared before the Jury, but refused to answer questions put .to them. - Today at 2 o'clock, these same parties were summoned before Judge Ira Abbott to show cause why they should not answer. At the hour set the interested parties appeared In court together with their attorneys. Judge Caldwell Yeamans, of Denver, ana ri. ai. Dougnerty, or Socorro, represent the American Fuel com. pany; O, N. Marron represents John Beaven; Neill B. Field represents W. H. Hahn, and District Attorney Clancy the territory. "Uuncltcd Tltem." Attorney Field, representing W. H. Hahn. in his address to the Judge this afternoon stated that the situa tion In which his client was placed was In a measure identical with the situations of the other defendants and that his remarks would apply largely to all. He then entered in to an explanation of the Sherman act and the term "restraint of trade." The tenor of his argument was to show that the defendants, or the paries summoned before the grand Jury, could not legally be compelled to answer the questions put to them by the grand Jury. The Questions. The questions which were asked of the local coal dealer, W. H. Hahn, yesterday, and which he refused to answer, upon the advice of his coun sel, are practically the fame ques tions asked of all the parties. Mr. Huhn was asked If he dealt in the coal from McKinley county and Los Cerrillos; why coal was higher this year than last; what was the cost of delivering coal from the base of sup plies to Albuquerque, and several other vital questions bearing on the present high prices of coal fuel. Of all the questions asked he answered but two, and these were of slight Im portance. The object of the terri tory in summoning the coal dealers and operators before the grand Jury Is to determine whether or not there has been entered Into by all parties concerned, a combination In restraint of trade. Constitutional Right. In his address to the court Mr. Field maintained that his client and those similarly situated were not bound to answer the questions put to them; that they had a constltu-" tional right not to answer them. He said It were better for the people to submit to the extortion of tradesmen rather than disregard constitutional rights. He did not infer that the people were compelled to submit to extortion in the present instance or that there was any extortion, but he sought to show what were the con stitutional rights of his client In the matter and why he should not be compelled to answer the questions put by the grand Jury. At 4 o'clock the attorneys for the coal Interests had not completed their arguments. PETTIBONE WAS IN COURT TODAY Boise, Idaho, Sept. 27. George A.
