Yauglian & Burnett Jewellers TKe HALLMARK Store I COAL "SCALPER" BIG INJURY TO TRADE Said to Be 100 Illegitimate Speculators Operating In New York .Makes High Prices. NEW YORK, Nov. One of the conclusions in whieh coal experts seem to agree is that the abuses from which the industry is .suffering are due in large measure to the manipulations of that particular breed of greedy middlemen whom the reputable members of the trade designate as "gyps' and "tiy-by-nlghts." In its ninth annual export number, re cently issued, the P.lack Diamond, organ of the ooal trade, has much to say of this class of gentry, and most of it isj far from flattering. "There are at work in Xew York city alone at this moment," says the F.laek Diamond, "'easily one hundred 'persons who are not coal men and who have n i legitimate connection with either pro ducers or consumers of coal who are be sieging operators daily in every possi ble way to give them an offer on their tonnage. Now these interlopers do not have legitimate offers for the coal upon which they try to secure prices or con tracts from operators. They are Irving to secure lino offers of coal solely for the purpose of having something to of fer a legitimate buyer if they can find one, "If every operator, as a duty to him self and to tile coal industry to which lie is a factor, would make these pests prove themselves, he would sooti find that the real buying of coal continues to come, as of old. directly throuuh rec igni.etl and regular channels. Put be cause today they get an offer from sonm person formerly a eigarmaker or a plumb er or an ex-sill; merchant, or any one of the hundreds who are now professing fo do a coal business, and tomorrow they get a like proposition from some other source, they arrive al the conclu sion that the need ot 'coal is so urgent hat prices mut stay up. at or around present levels for months."'
