Shortage Is Easing
Bluffton’s early fall coal famine
was beginning to disappear this
week, as heavy shipments of fuel
began rolling into town from mines
that through September concentrated
most of their efforts in getting coal
to Great Lakes ports.
Restrictions on local deliveries
were greatly relaxed, after more
than half a dozen cars of coal were
received here during the last week,
with more promised for early ship
Scarcity of coal here resulted from
a shortage of railroad cars occasion
ed by a last-minute rush to route as
much coal as possible to the upper
lake area before operations of ships
were halted by freezing weather.
