12 . THE OGDEN STANDARD: OGDEN, UTAH, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13, 191: " ., .
I! COAL SHORTAGE IN OGDEN J CAUSING UNEASINESS II ill I, i Orders for coal in ton lots- and similar small quantities are being filled with great difficulty by local dealers, and the city Is approaching a crisis in the coal situation which is' k becoming acute. The coal is not to ? be had, the dealers claim. TJiere are ' so few shipments sent to Ogden that it is impossible for any coal yard In 1 the city to have a supply stored on hand. Where dealers, in better times, used to store several thousand : tons against the demands of winter, i now they have.riot even a ton on hand for a time longer than a few hours. The discomforting aspect, of the , situation, too, will steadily groy, j worse as the keen nights and morn- j ings of the late fall season approach. ' The dealers claim there is a small ' supply of coal on hand in nearly every home in ihe city and were it not L ' for this fact sharp distress would be ti felt. Prospects for a general relief are ) said by local coal men to be fair. I fThe railroads have promised to start i! trains of coal into this territory within a few weeks and expect by Novem- , ber 1 to have the situation pretty well in hand. The roads have been unable to do this, however, in the few years i past which havo seen similnr condi- f tlons with regard to the coal supply, and dealers are dubious concerning J tho chances of the railroads fulfill- I ing the promise. ; I;,' c. w. mm nun i i TO BE DESERTER I; ; FROM HUT i J Chandls W. Howard, arrested some I davs ago for assisting boys to escape L ' fro'm the State Industrial school, has I been found to be a deserter from the jl United States army. 7L He enlisted In Idaho in the regular II i . t V,o trolnlnti' II ; army anu was ckui .u ucwuw.o j camp at San Diego, Cal. Finding army life not to his liking, he deserted and ; made his way east as far as $gden. Here he prevailed on his brother, an Inmate of tho reformatory, to try to ,. escape, and the older boy was teach- r. lng him how to become a bandit when ; he was arrested. I On word from the military authori- ( ties, Chandls was turned over to the officers, at Fort Douglas, Sergeant T. i H. Blackburn taking him to Salt Lake i ' yesterday afternoon. If COIEIf I OF COURT i in moi case An order has been Issued to Moroni Brown, defendant in a recent divorce, suit brought against him by Margaret P. Brown, that he appear before the district court to show cause why he should not be judged in contempt of court for refusing to obey an order of the court charging him to pay alimony to his divorced wife. The payment of alimony by the de fendant to Mrs. Brown was one of the stipulations of the judgment, and which the defendant is alleged to have failed to obey. uu I Head tho Classified Ads. oo r Read the Classified Ads. The. scarcity of coal is laid to tho tremendous demand made upon tho mines by manufacturing enterprises and Industry generally throughout the country. Production of manufaV lured articles is more extensive now than at any other time and tho de mand for coal has consequently in creased in proportion. It is said that the production of coal is 25 per cent greater at this time than it was dur ing the -same period of last year and yet the scarcity remains. Some trouble has been felt at the mines, according to advices received by Ogden coal merchants, regarding tho labor supply. It is said that enough coal miners cannot be obtain ed to keep the output at a high rale. In the southern Utah districts farm ers have been accustomed to finish ing their farm work in the fall and then going Into some of the mines to work. This increased the supply ma terially. This year, nowever. tho farmers have received good prices for their crops and are fairly prosperous, generally, so a large number of them have concluded they will not work in the mines but instead enjoy their profits and "lay around for a spell." The lack of cars and engines has heretofore been ascribed as the reason for the failure of the Denver - Rio Grande to supply this territory more generously with coal. This con dition, it is said, has been consider ably remedied for this season. RED CROSS IS TO MEET ST 1130 S, M. 01 lit? Monday will bo a very busy day for several of the Red Cross women and leaders.
