and mess sergeants, involving a food
graft ring at Washington Barracks
and Camp Humphreys. Va.
I Officers in the quartermaster gen

At present mess sergeants buy food
on requisitions approved by- com

of the Wlttlln Meat Company, and

I 33 of the penal code, which deals with
attempts to defraud the Government.

the food dealers.
The two dealers were released
Saturday on 13,000 ball to appear In

that witnesses will be called to tes

Washington coal dealers will not
be permitted to add the increased
freight rate, effective tomorrow, on
coal that Is now In their yards, on
dumps, or en route to this city.
Regulations have been isued by the
fuel administration providing that
the Increase, which in Washington
will be -5 cents a ton, can only be
applied upon coal upon which the
advanced freight rato has actually
been paid by the dealer.
It has been a common business
practice In the past for retailers In
any line to get the advantage of a
rising market, but the coal dealers
will be hold to strict account on their
costs and margins.
In many instances, however, it will
be a matter of but a fen days before
Washington residents begin paying
the higher rate, as dealers are deliv
