THE NEWS SCIMITAR.
RATE BOOST WILL
Local Companies Advance
Price for Third Time Since
Winter Panicky Market
' and Few Cars Aid in Boost.
The Impending freight rate lncreas
made legal by recent act of the inter
state commerce commission, probablv
will Increase the price of coal In Mem
phi to th consumers another 60 cent,
per ton, declared W. T. C. Berlin, prtn
- ident of the Hunt-Berlin Coal company,
Tuesday, relatl to th announceme.it
lata Monday of an Increase of about i'
ton on West Kentuckyy and Ala
(Tamp coals. The increase is scheduled
to come about Oct. 1 and -will be gem
era, affecting all kinds of freight.
Practically all local companies late
Monday advanced their "West Kentucky
and Alabama coal for the third time
since last winter. The former, selling
VuntU Monday at (9 per ton, reached
$10 mark and the Alabama coa.
wMit from .Su to 110.50. If the other
kinds of coal marketed here could be
obtained, the same ratio of increase
would be applied aiso, Mr. Berlin de
clared. This Increase was necessitated, lo
cal coal dealers say, by the cost of
coal at the mines, which in turn is In
fluenced bv a verv Danicky market.
The scarcity of cars and the Alabama
strike are contributory causes, the deal
ers say, but the fact that buyers are
spending money recklessly to get coa
at any price at the mine, is principally
responsible, according to Mr. Berlin's
"For instance." Mr. Berlin added, "a
dealer, unable to get coal, sends out
a buyer armed with a draft book and
instructions to get coal at any price.
Vpon finding loaded coal at the mines
already Bold, the buyer men bargains
with the mine operutor for the next
loading at an increase nt price, some
times lh6 Increase is 60 cohts Per tin
Th next buyer in turn increases the
Trie a few mors ceii and so on until
the market Is panicky."
West Kentucky coal at the beginiiinn
of the summer retailed in Memphis at
17.711. - ', ,
For the first time tn years local coal
dealers are not sponsoring a "lay In
your wlhter coal" campaign, for they
haven't the coal themselves, according
to Mr. Berlin. H the usual summer
rush of coal orders were experienced
this season, the demand would far ex
ceed ths supply, he said.
Mr. Berlin -declined to forecast what
the price of coal will be by the time
com weatner arrives, tie sam, nw
ever, that unless the market was sta
,;i!tM further then la danerer of an
other increase aside from that cnued
by tile increase In freight rates. The
coal dealers. Mr. Berlin added, were
trying to conform In their making of
prices with the margin or proms as
fixed by the recent fair price committee.
Practically all other kinds of coal
iiHiialiv uhirmerl tn Memphis are unob
tainable now, flue to the shortage of
induction. If they could be secured,
the increase In price would be felt on
them also, Berlin said.
