Williams lias amended the emer gency coal rules which he issued Sat urday, Jan. 5. The regulations as amended state that the dealers are no longer re Quired to admit pedfllern and other customers to their yards. Mr. Wil liams, also, in the second section of the amendment, revokes the order al lowing no dealer to sell over one-half top of lump coal, or more than one ton of run-of-the-mine to a customer. The amendment to this allows the dealers to sell as much as two tons of run-of-mine or one ton of lump i-oal to a cuitomer. with the exception of such places as schools, hospitals or other public institutions, whichby spe cial order from the administrator, may secure more. The amended coal regulations, ef fective Jan. i, 1918, are as follows: "The emergency rules made on Sat urday, Jan. 6, are amended as follows: "1. Dealers are no longer required to admit peddlers or other customers to the. yards, but are requested to sup ply the peddlers and other yard cus- j tomers Just as liberally as the dealers t'erl they can do. In justice to their ne livery customers. Kach dealer must exercise his best Judgment, within the limits allowed, in securing as wide distribution of coal coming in as Is possible. "2. The limitation of sales to one ton of run-of-mlno, and one-half ton of domestic or lump coal is revoked; and dealers are now permitted to sell to any one customer as much as two tons of run-of-mine or one ton of do mestic; coal, but no more. There will be no exceptions to this rule except in esse of hospitals, schools, or other public institutions, and permission to make ecxentlons in such cases must first be obtained from the administra tor. R. H. WILLIAMS. Hamilton County Fuel Admtnistra- tor." Seme Relief. . Some relief for the present coal sit uation was In sight Tuesday morning, as reports were heard from most of the coal dealers ami the railway yards. There were very few coal yards that were entirely without, coal, and the sit uation In the suburbs seemed to be ' very much better. Fourteen cars came In over the Southern to be delivered to the retail dealers, during the forenoon Tuesday and five cars over the K, C. V St ii, to go to the dealers. The special wood committee of the manufacturers' association felt that the prospects for getting wood Into the city was now sure and that they would have no trouble in getting a good sup ply. Authorities from the county said that the county forces were working Tuesday hauling and cutting wood. Secretary Brewer also received a bill of lading from the N., C. & St. U for a car of wood loaded by J. Luther Troxell. at Bridgeport, Ala. He also received word from Pr. Dupree Inform ing htm be would have a car coming In Thursday and another Monday. The wood will be distributed mostly among the manufacturers, as the deal ers show little inclination of wanting to handle It. The manufacturers will sell It at cost to their employes, as substitute for coal. Some irate citizen . at East Lake called up the administrator to tell hira an empty coal car had been standing on a. siding near Bryan L. uates coai vard In Kast Chattanooga ever since lust Friday, when It was unloaded. This irate citizen, who was evidently anxious to see another loaded car in his neighborhood quick, wanted to know why it was If the mines were short of cars, this car was not picked up long ago and sent back to some mine for reloading. There has been considerable com plaint on the part of dealers about empty coal cars being left standing on sidings, for days at a time, aiier nav- fnir been unloaded. If such complaints arc well founded, the local autnormes state that It would seem the coal shortage, cannot be due to lack of cars; otherwise all empty cars would nat urally, be returned promptly to the mines.

(Correspondence of the Associated Press.) The navy estimates of the Netherlands for 1918 provide for the building of three submarines and a mine layer for the mother country and three submarines for the Nether lands Kast Indies. A number of sub marines already are under construc tion. The refusal of the lTnlted States to sanction the building of three such boats at fan Frnneiseo on Holland's account makes the carrying out of the modest program very problematical at present. Washington) Jan. 8. The practical agreement of fundamentals in the president's program with those ex pressed by the British premier made an immediate and profound impres sion upon all who heard him. Coming at a moment when Germany faces the demands of her socialists for abandonment of any program of an nexations and indemnities and also faces the failure of the peace nego tiona at Brest-Litovsk, the president's pronouncement developed its tremen dous importance as he spoke to a crowded chamber of legislators, diplo mats and officials. Although the ad dress was punctuated liberally by ap plause, there was one great' demon stration when the president declared France must have right for the wrong in Alsace-Lorraine. At that, the en tire assembly arose, applauded and cheered loudly.

The president made clear at the out set that the German statesmen hav ing again challenged their adversaries to a restatement of war alms, he un dertook to respond to it with the ut most candor. The British premier's declaration the president referred to as having been spoken with "admira ble candor and in admirable spirit for the people and government of Great Britain." "The only secrecy of counsel," he added, "the only lack of fearless frank ness, the only failure to make state ment of objects of the war, lies with Germany and her allies." Serbians Join in Applause. The voice of the Russian people, prostrate and all but helpless, with power apparently shattered but not subservient, called for a statement of alms, and, the president added, he re sponded "with utter simplicity and frankness."

The 'letter to the former emperor, Nicholas of Russia, which led to the exiling of Gen. Gurko, formerly commander of the Russian southwestern front, has just been published here.

Discovery of the body was brought about by the peculiar antics of a dog which was seen pawing at postholes on Dr. Chamberlain's farm. The torso was found buried in the back yard. The head, feet, legs, arms and heart were uncovered In different postholes. Owing to intense feeling aroused by the brutality of the murder.
