Phone 567 UnonoDonnn o UNIFORM PRICES FOR COAL TO BE FIXED FOR CAPE County FUel Administrator, L. 8. Houck, to Confer With Dealers. COAL IS SOLD AT $2.40 TON AT MINES. HE SAYS Retail Dealers Entitled to Fair Profit in Addition to Their Expenses. A uniform price of coal in the city v.-ill be fixed in tno near future in a conference between Col. L. B. Houck, countv fuel administrator, and the coal dealers of the city. The price will be regulated so as to allow the dealers a fair profit after paying their expenses in hauling the coal from the mines to their yards. Fuel Administrator Garfield has is sued drastic orders in an effort to reduce Ihe coal price for the consum ers to the minimum, and these orders will be the cutdance in fixing the prices for the city coal dealers. Col. Houck said yesterday he had visited several coal mines in Illinois whence the local dealers derive their Fupply and had found that the price per ton was $2.40 at the mines. Add ing to this the 90 cents charged by the raiiroad for hauling the coal and the expenses the dealers have in get ting the coal from the freight cars to their yards it is reasonable to assume official canvass made today by the State Executive Council. The canvass, made on the initial count of the ballots, showed 214,693 fir the amendment and 215,625 against. that the small dealers must be allow ed h. certain amount to defray these expenses. Although there is no shortage of coal in the city, Col. Houck said yes terday, he believed that the whole supply would be exhausted within a week if the weather necessitated a heavy consumption of coal in the resi dences. The shortage of freight cars, it is true, he said, is a handicap in transferring the coal from the mines to the dealers, but no actual short age of fuel is caused by the small number of freight cars available for the shipments. The fact that a gi'eat number of persons have to live from hand to mouth, Col. Houck said, and that these citizens can not afford to buy a large supply at one time1, would cause a coal famine in the city if a severe cold spell would reach the city unex pectedly. The dealers would not be able to get sufficient coal to fill the orders for coal. A canvass of the city and of the large plants of the city made by Col. Houck several days ago revealed that all factories were well supplied with coal at this time, and with their reg ular shipments of coal would not ex perience any hardship even with the shortage of freight cars for coal ship ments. The heavy expense of demurrage the coal dealers are forced to pay, if they want to avoid the unloading of coal and sending it to the coal yards was- advanced as another reason for allowing the dealers an advance on orice. If the demand is not heavy, then the coa! dealers must either haul the coal to their yards and again load it into the wagons for later delivery or else pay demurrage, if not taken from the freight car within a certain length of time. These circumstances, he said should be taken into consideration in fixing a fair price for coal charged for the consumer. Col. Houck's duty as fuel adminis trator for the county is chiefly an in vestigation into complaints made by the individual and by the factories oJ the city. Complaints are forwarded to the state fuel administrator whose duty it is to see that the coal ship ments are not held up without reason able excuse, but are forwarded to the dealers without delay. Col. Houck was given the appointment by Lieutenant- Governor Wallace Crossley a week ago.

CAPE COUNTY'S QUOTA NOW EXCEEDS $20,000 Names of Contributors to War Fund to Be Made Public, Although the campaign for collec tions to the Y. M. C. A. and Knights of Coiumbus war fund, was formally closed Monday night, the men in charge of the work in the entire state have received a request from the. organization headquarters in St. Louis to continue their work till De cember 1. This announcement was made by those in charge of the cam paign in Cape Girardeau last night. The reason for the continuation of the campaign is principally due to the fact that many who have expressed a desire of subscribing to the soldiers' fund, have not as yet had an oppor tunity to contribute and therefore the campaign workers have decided on the extension of time for the closing of the campaign. The leaders say, it would be an injustice to those who are willing to contribute, if the campaign were closed wnnout tneir donations. Cape Girardeau city has already ex ceeded its quota by several thousand dollars. No definite reports are avail able as to the total amount collected in the city, for the reason that H. L. Albert, manager of the campaign, is absent from the city and the chairman of the many committees have not turn ed in a report on their work during the two days. It is estimated, however, that the total collections in the city amount to nearly $15,000 and that the county will add at least $o,000 to this amount making a total of ?20,000 for Cape Girardeau county. This amount was the minimum al- otment of the district comprising Cape Girardeau, Perry and Bollinger county. Indications are that the oth- pr two counties have already exceeded heir allotment of 5,000 and with this estimate on hand the campaign work ers feci confident that the district collections will be in the neighbor hood of $25,000. Reports from Oak Ridge show that the total contribution to the Y. M. C. and Knights of Columbus fund in that small town is $"29. Jackson has eported more than $3,500 and with the donations given m other towns of the county, it is estimated that the collections in the county outside of the city of Cape Girardeau will be nearly S5,000 in addition to the $15, 000 estimated to have been , donated in Cape Girardeau alone. The executive committee of the Y. M. C. A. organization is keeping a record of the names of all contribu tors. These names will be printed in a booklet and kept on record to show the patriotic sentiment and liberality of the citizens of Cape Girardeau city and county. UNCONSCIOUS AFTER FALL FROM HIS SILO Charles Mammon of Near Egypt Mills suffered Fracture of Skull Yesterday.

Rendered at Elks Hail Last Night. MORE THAN $14,000 COLLECT ED IN CAPE Campaign Workers to Continut All Week Cape Couni) to Etadlish a Record. The campaign for the collection of! donations to the fund of the Y. M. C. j A. and Knights of Columbus war! fund, was brought to a fitting close j with a card party and entertainment j at the Elks yesterday afternoon and' evening. The success of the event was a gratifying reward for the hard work done by the ladies of the Civic Im provement Association who offered their assistance during the campaign and arranged the closing entertain ment yesterday. During the afternoon the ladies were entertained at cards, the evening pvas filled with a splendid musical pro gram and dance. More than 100 cou ple swere present last night, all wanting to swell the funds collected for the Y. M. C. A. and the Knights of Columbus. The music for the dance was furnished by the Shivelbinc or chestra, the members having offered to give their musical talent for the foccasion without charge. Three prizes were awarded after the afternoon, program, Mrs. H. S. Doyle, Mr3. E. M. Doyle and Mrs. Mc Cammon being the winners of the af ternoon. The evening prizes were won by Mr. Newport and Miss Kathleen Carroll. The evening program was one of the most splendid musical renditions ever heard at the Elks Hall. Miss La vigna Rozier of Farmington, and Miss Black, vocal teacher of the Normal, sang several wonderful solos, accom panied by Miss Dora Naeter, Prof. Kenyon and Miss Rieck, the accom plished violin player. The arrangements for the entertain ment were made by the ladies of the Improvement Association assisted by members of the Elks lodge. The re freshments were donated for the en tertainment relieving the ladies of the Improvement Association of virtually ai! expenses. It was estimated that at least $100 would be realized from this entertainment which could be turned over to the war fund of the Y. M. C. A. and Knights of Colum bus. Whi'e yesterday's event was the for mal closing of the campaign the teams will continue their work in soliciting donations to the fund for the soldiers. An effort will-be made to have Cape Girardeau county establish a record in the state and have the district ex ceed its allotment by many thousands Jnf dollars. At the closing of the reports for the day Cape Girardeau alone had contributed more than $14,000 to the fund of the Y. M. C. A. and Knights of Columbus. The county's pportion - ment was fixed at 115,000 and that of I the district comprising Cape Girard eau, Perry and Bollinger county at $20,000. Reports from thovse in charge charge of the campaign in the coun ty indicate that the minimum has been oversubscribed by at least $5,000. Major William T. Morgan of Pop lar Bluff, it was announced by the executive committee of the Y. M. C. A. organization, will come to the city to address a meeting in behalf of the organization. Major Morgan has been closely identified with the Y. M. C. A. work in the training camps and can explain the many needs for which the money will be expended. TRIBUNE READERS SOLVE CONUNDRUM Two more subscribers of The Trib une have solved the puzzling relation ship between the sons of two couples as propounded by John Hickman last week. Charles McCIain of Advance es tablished the following degrees f re lationship between the two boys: . B's sister's child would be a cousin of B's son, as B's wife is a daughter of A. ' Her child would be a nephew of A's son who would be a half -uncle of A's son as he is a half brother of Mrs. A. Mrs. J. J. Fitzgerald of 38 North Spanish street, Cape Girardeau, has come to the same conclusion, finding that Ihe son of Mrs. A would be a half cousin of Mrs. B's son, and at the same lime a half uncle for the rea son that his mother would be Mrs. B's son's grandmother, as she is the wife of the boy'a grandfather.
