The Ico Question
It is all very well to advise X > oplc to keep
cool during warm weather but paradoxical
as it may seem it is a question of ice that
caused a great many people to boil yes
terday The advance of tho price of this
article from JJ to 1 cent per pound retail
has worked a storm of indignation and
judging from remarks made yesterday will
liave the effect of largely increasing tho
earnings of the Dallas factories Clubs are
being formed to purchase ico in Dallas by
ton and have it shipped here by express
or fast freight if tho ice companies persist
in maintaining the present advances
However it was given out by the pack
inghouse people yesterday that they would
furnish ice at etail at 40 cents a hundred
pounds at the packinghouse or w ould de
liver it to residences at the rate of M cents
per hundred pounds As it is understood
ice can be manufactured at a cost not ex
ceeding 10 cents per hundred pounds there
seems little reason for tho advance other
than a desire on the part of the manufac
turers to squeeze every cent possible out of
their customers Many people however
express the belief that the companies will
return to the old schedule rather than see

Wants to Join tho Club
To the Gazette
People are becoming very tired of
trusts which tend to advance the prico
of the necessities of life The ice dealers
of Fort Worth who are tho latest to organ
ize themselves into a trust have stirred
up a hornets nest in other localities besides
the South Side which you refer to in yes
terdays Gazette Tho writer has heard
of several consumers who are anxious to
join a club to send over to Dallas for ice
As long as people submit to the dictates of
trusts just so long will they exist The
people should rise as one man and positively
lefuse to buy ice from those who are in tho
trust Crush out all trusts or ikioIs and let
the legitimate channels of competition flow
onward and regulate prices according to
supply and demand Trusts of all
kinds whereby prices arc advanced should
be frowned down upon and the people can
do so if they will commence with the ice
