High Price of
Chlcaeo. Feb. 2. Retail coal
dealers are responsible for pre
vailing high prices of coal, accord
ing to F. E. Kelsey, manager ot
the newly formed Indiana Poca
hontas Mining company, a co
operative "direct from the mines"
coal producing and selling com
pany. Mr. Kelsey says bia com
pany Is out to show that coal can
be produced and disposed of to the
consumer at much cheaper prices
than prevail at present.
Mr. Kelsey said that In the last
ten days he had shipped coal from
the mines in the Ayrshire district
in southern Indiana and south
western Michigan and that retail
dealers immediately cut their
prices $2 a ton.
"Blame for high prices can not
be put on the coal operator, the
miner or the railroad," said Mr.
Kelsey. "The operators are mak
ing only about 15 to 25 cents a
ton on coal In Indiana, the high
average for a miner Is $6 a day
and the railroad freight rate for
coal is not in any sense excessive.
"I have Just bad two Instances
of where, In my opinion, the re
sponsibility for high prices can be
laid. I shipped coal from south
ern Indiana to the towns of St.
Joseph and Benton Harbor In
Michigan. I advertised that my
coal would be sold for $6 a ton on
the track or $7 a ton delivered.
The retail dealers were charging
13 a ton and, although there was
no change In the market price,
they immediately cut their price
$2 a ton, which was still high.
This is an indication of who Is
getting the big profits."
