(Continued from Page One)
The fuel question, as expounded by Mr.
Daniels also was of much timely inter
est. Mr. Daniels said that the yearly
needs of the town were about 13,000
tons of hard coal. According to the
Pennsylvania Fuel commission, our al
lotment this winter will be 50 per cent
of what we bought last year. On April
1, 1021, there were 3,000 tona of bard
coal in the local dealers' bins ; this year
at the same date there were less than
1,000 tons, partially due to the fact that
the dealers found it unprofitable to pay
taxes on coal which the listers taxed un
der the law. Last vear, 11,000 tons were
bought so that 50 per cent of this
amount or 5,500 tons, will be our al
lotment this winter. To Oct. 1. only
2,500 tons bad been delivered, whereas
under normal conditions at least 50 per !
. M .!,.. . . 1 - ,
it-Hi ui me natural consumption oi coal
should have been delivered by the first
of this month. We have, therefore, an
allotment of less than 4.000 tons more
to be delivered for the balance of the
year, which ends,' on April 1. In reality,
we need 10,000 more tons.
The situation is being somewhat re
lieved. Mr. Daniels stated, by the use of
soft coal "nd wood, which will cut down
the use of coal this winter by 3.000 or
4.000 tons. However, it is impossible to
see any way out of the dilenma of being
4,000 tons t-hort this winter. At the
present time, dealers are very short of
coal. East Wednesday, thete were only
30 tons of coal in the dealers' bins here
in Brattleboro. This is a record that we
have never had before and which we
don't want to see again.
However, we don't anticipate much
trouble in keeping warm this winter if
the people-will be honest. The local coal
dealers. E. B. Barrows and E. I?. Yau
vey, are honest in the delivery of coal,
and if the people will be honest with the
dealers as far as their wants are con
cerned, there will be no difficulty. It is
a good idea for everyone not to use bard
coal at least before Nov. 1; use wood or
something else. December, January and
February will be cooler than November,
so people should play safe and save their
coal for the later months.
Turning to the. question of wood. Mr.
Daniels said that we must economize
during this situation and burn more
wood. Thus far, the local committee has
not found it necessary to fix the price of
wood, but a full cord was going to be in
sisted upon and 15 is plenty to pav fin
it. and this means good rock maple wod
dried under cover.
During the next 30 to 40 days. Mr.
Daniels said, the situation regarding coal
will probably be somewhat relieved as
more coal cars will be released for use
here in the East by the expiration of
that time. Anyone, however, who really
is in need of coal should make bis
wants known to the local dealers who
will do their best to take care of them.
But boarding of coal will be prevented.
There are many other communities
that are just as badly off as Brattleboro.
and in some towns the following regula
tions have been put into effect:
First: Not to use any bard coal be
fore the 1st of November. Use wood or
some other substitute.
Second: No anthracite coal is to be
delivered to any customer having on
hand a supply of coal sufficient for 30
Third: No anthiftcite delivery to a
single customer -should be more than a
30-day supply: if a 30-day suppb" is less
than a ton. one ton may be delivered.
Fourth: To avoid duplication of or
ders the committee directs the lo-al deal
ers to deliver coal only to their regular
Fifth: We urge jieople to use soft
coal, coke or wood whenever possible.
There are no restrictions on this kind of
fuel. . -
The local fuel committee has n"t yet
found it necessary to, rnfor"- thes ru!
Migs. but people are urged to follow
them, and in doing s everybody will be
satisfactorily taken enre of and will feel
ea'er and slee-i a little better.
