Hundreds of Orders Go Un
filled as Result of Trouble
at Illinois Mines.
NO HOPE FOR WEEK
Small Orders from Boone
County Mines Were Only
Ones Delivered Today.
Hundreds of Columbia coal orders
are going unfilled today as a result of
trouble at the Illinois mines. For
several days Columbia dealers have
realized that shortage in fuel was im
minent and today were forced to re
fuse to make any deliveries except in
a few cases where it was possible to
fill emergency orders with coal from
Boone County mines.
No hope Is held out by the local
dealers for deliveries before next
week, except for a few loads which
may be had from the mines in the
neighborhood of Columbia. According
to the dealers questioned, there has
been an increased demand for coal oil
stoves, and many townspeople have
given up hope of running furnaces
for another week. At the offices of
the Whittle and Hockaday Coal Co.,
at the Davis and Watson Co., and, at
tho Dalton Coal Company it was said
that it would be impossible to get any
coal here from the Ullonls mines for
at least a week. "We are gettinsal
HtUe from local mines," said ohVI
dealer, "but it takes all day to dig
a load of that and so it looks a bit
hopeless for the nex't week or so at
COLD SPELL BRINGS HARDSHIPS
Many Calls on Charity Organization
for Food and FueL
The present cold weather, combined
with high prices of food and coal, has
caused many persons to call on the

Major, field secretary, toddy, the calls
had been made by widows who were
earning about $5 a week and were try
ing to support from two to five chll
drenon.that amount Their great,,
need was for coal.
"It Is almost Impossible to obtain
coal at any price," said Mr. Major.
"These people who barely earn a liv
ing in the summer are unable to meet
the need for more clothing and fuel
which the cold weather demands."

Liberty Day 'to Bring Bond
Issue to Minimum, Of-
AID OF ALL NEEDED
Response of Small Subscrib
ers Necessary to Reach
By Associated Tress
WASHINGTON, Oct. 23. The Lib
erty Loan was still lagging today on
the basis of scattering unofficial esti
mates at tho Treasury Department"
Officials were hoping that the $3,000.-
000,000 minimum would be reached
by tomorrow night, when the heavy
anticipated volume of Liberty Day
sales would be at hand.
Officials announced that there was
little information at hand to lead
them to believe that the $5,000,000,000
maximum would be reached, al
though they thought the sum might
possibly bo reached by an eleventh-
hour avalanche of subscriptions.
"Conviction is felt in many quar
ters," the Treasury Department an
nounced, "that the $3,000,000,000 mark
can bo reached by tomorrow night.
Solicitors, spurred on by their failure
to make the desired gains yesterday,
the first day of the last week of the
campaign, began anew today with
confident hope of obtaining the neces
sary $500,000,000 to pass the $3,000,
000,000 mark by tomorrow at the
Liberty Day returns, the heads of
some of the district bond committees
believed, would reach $1,000,000,000.
There is every indication that It may
approximate GO per cent of this sum.
Conditions and circumstances point
more and more to the conclusion that
only by a tremendous response of the
entire nation by hundreds of thou
sands of small subscribers and many-
large ones could the total sales be
brought anywhere near the maximum
