COAL BUYERS AR
ADVISED ON COAL
PENNSYLVANIA LAWS HAVE CON
SIDERABLE EFFECT ON LOCAL
COAL SITUATION SAYS WELL
KNOWN ANTHRACITE MAN
WHICH MANY SHOULD KNOW.
The local coal situation ia largely
dependent on the Pennsylvania coal
statutes, says H. V. Williams of St.
Paul, one of the well known coal
sales-men of the Clarkson Coal & Dock
Co., of that city who la a frequent
visitor in Fargo.
The lawh of Pennsylvania, contend
ed Mr. Williams, have a good deal to
do with the grade of the coal. The
laws of that state allow the mixing of
coal. As this coal is mined, It is run
over the picking boards and the slate
and bone picked down to the following
Grate size, 2 per cent slate, 3 per
cent blue or bone egg slae, 3 per cent
elate, 4 per cent bone or blue coal
stove size, i per cent slate. 5 per cent
bone or blue coal chestnut size, 7 per
cent slate, 7 per cent bone or blue coal
pea size, 10 per cent slate, 12 per cent
bone or blue coal.
Of course this slate will not burn,
but the blue coal and bone will burn,
for in many cases, this coal contains a
large amount of carbon and will burn
to a fine ash or will burn flaky.
A large number of people think all
the dark coal they find in the coal they
buy Is slate. The blue coal and bone
is the grade, that runs near the out
side of the vein or from the wet part
of the mine. If one takes the trouble
to break open some of this dark coal
It will be found that it Is quite bright
and sometimes it will be joined with
a very bright seam of coal. A plecc
like this will burn flaky and the ash
will be light weight.
To test this, pick out a shovel full
of this dark coal and put it tn the Are
and see how it» burns. It is the dark
coal in the coal that holds the Are
and gives off the long-lasting heat.

Tokyo, A'ig 18.—Japin's dP(*Is1on to

thus extend the theatre of war from

some discussion among the statesmen
of the empire. It was the Genra or
Elder statesmen who at first opposed
Japan's participation Extensive nego

Great Britain and Japan before an ac
cord was reached as to the sphere of
As soon as war was declared between
England and Germany, Japan mobolli
ed her fleet In readiness for action and
very soon after that several army
corps were ordered in readiness for
quick mobilisation. The third Japan
ese squadron located at Shanghai was
reinforced by several warships from
the home fleet and a. patrol wag estab

cruisers was organized at Yokosuka
with Prince Fushiml in command, while
the battleship wjuadron at Sasebo was
increased to eight big gunshlps Includ
ing the dreadnought Kongo snd the
new dreadnough Htyel.
Meantime Japan began to feel heavily
the results of the war. Rhippinn was
tied up and as many as a. hundred
steamers of different nationalities were
unable to leave port. Foreign com

DAKCIN6 OIV TO WAR.
New York Times: Before the 6,000
and odd explanations of why the Euro
pean war began, first prize leaps forth
to pin Itself on the breast of an estim
able press agent, of this city, who thus
manifolded to the glory of his kind:
Is there any remote, profound, psy
chological connection between the mad.
universal passion for dancing which
has animated the civilized world for
the last two years and the present mad
universal passion for war"*
It is a well recognized fact that when
a tribe of North American Indians
takes to dancing the white men in the
vicinity prepare for trouble. The same
Is true In Africa. Every violent out
break or intertribal war there is pre
faced by a wild orgy of dancing. The
sound of the rhythmic throb of the na
tive drums reverberating through those
tropical Jungles always tells the Euro
peans within earshot that the dusky
warriors are dancing in strange wild
circles of shuffling, leaping, reeking
masses of black humanity, and the ex
perienced foreigners know what Is like
ly to follow.
Perhaps, say we In all reverence. But
not so that one can notice It. l^acklng
the remote and profound imagination
of a press agent, we can only observe
things a® they are. In our eyes, when
the sound of the rhythmic throb of the
native drums begins to beat along
Broadway It Is the call for a more
sedate and pious all night's entertain
ment than ever was known before. The
warriors do shuffle a little, and they
trot much In the gardens and palaces
of dance. But there they stop. Sober,
and discreet are the words.
There have been in the history of the.
town violent outbreaks of intertribal*
war following orgies of one" kind or
another. But not after modern danc

Asked to explain the cause of th£
present shortage of beef, the witness
said a shortage had existed for thir
teen years. In that time, he said, thrf
supply of cattle in this country had
fallen short of the demand by 15,000,
000 and the shortaga was growing
As remedies for the present condi
tions he offered the following suggest
ions for action by oongTess:
An export duty should be placed on
heef the government lands of the
west should be thrown open for graz
ing killing of any female calf under
8 or r» years old, or of any calf weigh
ing less than 150 pounds, should be
prohibited 10% of the income tax
should be used for fostering the rais
ing of cattle public slaughter houses,
like those in England, should be es
1 tabiished by the government.
gnrdlng her partleipstlon In the hosti
lities, a halt came in the general ac
This was explained as due first to a
hitch In the negotiations between
Japan and England concerning the
fnpo of Japan's action and being also
due t° Great Britain's desire to calm
f*ar* that might exist in China and tn
America, that Japan had any designs
upon the integrity of China. Grest

Another Important factor In the sit

selves were not In harmony a* to Jap
an's attitude but after a serlou* of de
liberations they reached unanimity.
Something of a flurry was caused In
Tokio by a rumor that the United
States had sent a communication to
Japan either requesting some assurance
as to the Integrity of China or paving
th» way for intervention bv thf United
States. Official# were kept busy deny
