SOME TALL REVISION DOWNWARD]
OF THE COUNTRY'S COAL '
COMMISSION TO BE AT WORK
i The Post's YY'ashington Bureau,
j Washington, D. C.. Aug. 25.—Within
1 a very short time President Wilson will
formally direct the federal trade com*
] minion to proceed to regulate the
: price of coal in the United States in
. ac c°rdHnce with the Pomerene amend
I ment to the food bill. The commission
! is ready and will at once prepare to fix
I prices.
j Two methods for fixing prices are
' Provided in the 1'omerene amendment,
j the pooling method and the straight
-out price regulation. It is generally
■ Understood that the commissiop has
j enough data on costs of production.to
! enable it to put into effect at once, the
latter system.
I While the pooling method may be
adopted in any place in the country
i w here the federal commission sees fit
to put it into effect, it is decidedly a
complex system and would take a great
deal of careful manipulation in ord€r
to make it come out right for every
one concerned.
On the other hand, straight-out
price regulation, now that the federal
trade commission has the data on
j which to base such regulation, is not
I at all a hard proposition. The most
difficult problem which the commis
j sion faces is that of eliminating and
I keeping eliminated fake selling
•tgencies an<F all sorts of schemes and
I de\ ices which the coal operator will
• devise to beat the coal price regulation.
The original Pomerene amendment
contained the provision that there
should be but one dealer between the
producer and the consumer. This*
provision was elufilViat/ed, however*
when it was shown .^hat if would be*
impossible to market coal for domestic
consumption with only one such dealer
!t wa * Pointed out.that the small re
tailer. who buyB JSbtff the wholesaler
and not from the mine, is a necessity
in the larger cities.
