SALT LAKE, Dec. 4.—Aberdeen
coal, lump and nut, dropped yester
day from $6. «50 to $0 per ton, and
the Wyoming coals will follow. Ab
erdeen is the best of Utah coals and
is equal in fuel value to any of the
Wyoming coals. It is the only Utah
coal which commanded the same
prices as the imported coals, and if
the Wyoming people wish to use
Utah as a market, it is declared
they will be compelled to sell at the
price local competition affixes.
The general coal outlook is tm
proving and a shortage is no longer
feared. Local dealers are confident
that it is only a matter of time un
til the coal market regains its for
mer solidity. The closing down at
Anaconda has made possible the di
version to this market of a large
supply that last year was shipped to
Montana. The curtailment in con
nection with the Salt Lake valley
smelters has increased the domestic
supply more than 10,000 tons. There,
is plenty of coal in the coal yards)
and dealers declared they will have
no trouble in filling orders.

MAN—$4 TO $4.50 NOW PRICE
AT CLEARWATER POINTS
Two Thousand Cords Now Piled

Holding Back Supply jrJ
-
"Lewiston fuel consumers can ex
pect a big drop in the price of wood
within the next six weeks." said a
prominent citizen of the Clearwater
country, who is a business visitor ia
the city today.
"At shipping points along the
Clearwater large quantities of wood
I
are stored and from the asking price
of $6.50 per cord of a few weeks
ago, the buyer can now secure all
he wants at from $4 to $4.50 per
cord.
"At the Orofino station there is
2000 cords now piled along the rail
road, and farmers are delivering
more every day. It. is safe to say
that at least another 1000 cords will
he added to that now stored for ship
nient.
The same condition is true at all
wood shipping points, and men are
going to the timber every day to en
gage in the wood cutting business
for the winter. It is safe to predict
that more wood will be cut in the
Clearwater country this winter than
ever before, and much of this will be
forced onto the market early in the
spring."
The present prices of wood In
Lewiston have been kept up t>y the
persons holding the wood in the out
side country, and much of the wood
placed on the market here was
bought for $6 jier cord at the ship
ping stations.
The drop in prices at Clearwater
points will materially effect the lo
cal market, and reductions may be
expected within a few days.

NEW YORK, Dec. 4 —The Sun
day theater in New York city will
be a thing of the past if a decision
rendered by Justice O'Gorman, in

In a sweeping opinion the justice

The opinion was rendered in con

of having violated the law.
The referee found that only five
of the acts given in the theater were
In violation of the Sunday law, but
Justice O'Gorman disagreed . with
him and said "each of the 20 acts
