HIE RAILWAYS
SAY ROADS CANNOT FURNISH
CARS MINE OPERATORS PRO
MISE TO CO-OPERATE TO FUR
NISH RELIEF.
Chicago, Nov. 2 Railroads are held
responsible for the coal shortage in
Chicago by the coal mine operators
of the state. The mines are running
60 to 65 per cent, of capacity. With
plentiful cars the output can be in
creased to S3 per cent.
This information was given Illinois
Fuel Administrator Williams yester-
day by the secretaries of the -six op-
erators' bureaus. He called them in-
to conference in an attempt to re-;
lieve the Chicago situation. i
"We are hampered by lack of cars," !
declared F. C. Honuold, of Franklin
county, one of the largest mine opera
tors in the United States. "The prob
lem is one for the railroads to solve.
They can help considerably by un
loading cars quickly and by sending
empty cars back promptly."
The operators also promised to co
operate with the fuel administration
when called upon for emergency re
lief,' should the coal shortage become
acute. The output of the mines has
practically all been contracted for.
They asked authority to abrogate
these contracts, or suspend delivery
under .them temporarily, if called up
on to meet urgent demands from
down-state cities, or from hospitals
and various public institutions.
Representative of the leaders ap
peared before ,the special committee,
of which Raymond Durham is chair
man, durin the day, armed with data
backing their demand for higher
retail .prices. j
G. W. Nasmyth, first assistant to
National Fuel Administrator Gar
field, will arrive in Chicago this morn
ing to go over data gathered by the
committee. He will decide whether
the investigation will be continued
and retail prices fixed, or whether
the committee, will confine its activi
ty, ,to enforcing equitable distribu
tion.

J It us our policy to keep our millinery stocks moving. In order to do this
we must make sacrifices occasionally that may seem out of all propor
tion to the quality of the hats and the season of the year. Such an occa
sion comes Friday and Saturday, when we shall close out all hats from
$5.00 to $15.00 at $3.00, $5.00, $7.50 and $10.00. In this sale there are
many that have been on our tables only a week or so. At the regular
prices we considered these exceptionally good hats, and at our reduced
prices the offer is little short of wonderful. - ; ': ; J

All unfilled orders on our books are today subject to an advance
of 50 cents per ton. This advance is necessary to partly defray the
increased costs of coal recently added. These costs are a fifteen
cent per ton increase in freight charges granted to the railroad com
panies by the Interstate Commerce Commission, Another Is a forty
five cent per ton Increase granted to the operators for their coal at
the mines, authorized by the President's proclamation of October 29,
On November 1 the war excise tax will' add 2 to 4 cents per ton on
all freight. On coal, this being the 3 per cent, tax authorized
by recent law.
When the $5 rate per ton was established these advances were
not anticipated. Everyone thought that this price would prevail
during the winter. Many placed advance orders which we were to de
liver as soon as an available supply could be secured by us. We have
been unable to fill advance orders because of several reasons. The
coal has been hard to get on account of the overwhelming dema-nd for
"it. The recent strike agitation cut down the supply. October 'has
experienced the coldest weather in years. The government is new
consumer of Illinois coal. Think it over and you will understand. All
the coal which we have been able to secure after most strenuous ef
forts has gone to consumers in small quantities to supply their Inv,
mediate needs.
We, therefore, have done all that could be expected of us and do
not care to be criticized by those who have placed advance orders
and have not been able to get what they wanted. They must re
member that the fuela administration does not advise the hoarding of
coal, and that they should take their chances with others In the dis
tribution of coal. We, therefore, give you the privilege of cancelling
these orders before delivery should you desire to do so.
