SLIDING SCALE .1Y BE BASIS OF W COAL RATE Mlsrs SmMt Price 8dwB . jwii ( ATidtaf BepetitlM tf Utt FalTt Cal Fusta. goek Iiland coal dealers have Informed of a sliding price acgjt arrangement proposed by aJac operator! that may become IfKtrre May 1. Coal dealers agree tht there will be a material in crease in the price of both hard and oft coal within the next six or tlikt months and if this increase is t ftidaal one it will not be so merely felt by the public. Tbe proposed plan is to increase the price from 10 to 25 cents per ton at the first of each month ex tending over a period of several months. Coal men argue that this tcheme will be instrumental in get ting tbe public to lay in a supply of coal early in the season when prices are at their lowest, thus iroiding a serious coal shortage during the winten season, a repeti tion of the difficulties experienced jut winter. , Host local dealers advanced the wlce of their coal, a large percent Oi WDU'O V.tfff IIUUI DUUU1CIU Xlll- aoie, from 35 to 40 cents per ton list week. This advance covers the increase demanded by the mine op erators on April 1. . . . Farther Advances Probable. ."We are unable to say whether the present price basis will con tinue all summer or not," said Neal Mikesell, manager of tbe Rock Is land Fuel company today. "If the mine operators should decide to ad- nnce their prices next month, we would have to do likewise." All dealers seem to agree that an ad vance in freight rates will be made before fall and this they say will boost the price of coal from 50 cents to 1 a ton. Government Approves Plan. "The government is strongly in bvor of a sliding price scale for oft coal similar, although more uniform, than that used by hard coal dealers Ho stimulate produc tion throughout the entire year," aid I. B. Hanks, business expert, who for the last several months has been negotiating for local coal dealers. "In fact the government even went so far as to advocate to , the owners of railroads the plan of reducing freight rates on coal dur ing the summer months and in creasing the rates during the win ter months. I believe, therefore, that the sliding price scale out lined by the mine operators has the sanction of all federal depart ments." Mr. Hanks also explained that it was impossible to estimate how much the present increase would mean in all grades of coal as the more difficult the coal is to mine the greater the advance in labor would amount to. Rock Island, he said, furnished a market for six fields of Illinois coal with as many different grades mined in each field.
