Several residents who attempted to assert their rights and purchase coal from parties other than the Bristol railroad, which does the coal business of this place, dis covered that they wero In' error In this respect nnd' were forced to return to tho Bristol railroad for their coal supply. A Free Press representative Interviewed Dr. C. S. Weston last evening. Tho doe tor said: "One year ago this fall somo of the residents of New Haven, Including my self, found wo could purchase coal In Burlington and have It delivered In New Haven cheaper than to buy nf the Bris tol railroad, whlrh is P. W. Clement's rnllroad. We could buy ottr coal In Bur lington delivered In New Haven $1.20 a ton cheaper than wo had been paying. We had one car come, which was weighed by the Bristol rnllroad agent on tho scales of tho Bristol Hnllrond company nnd divided among the purchasers, Wo de cided that we could use another car of coal, but the agent of the Bristol rail road told us that If he weighed any more coal for us he would lo'n nts Job. Ho said we would have to have It weighed on private scales. Of course this put an end to our purchasing coal from parties other than tho Bristol road."
