RETAIL COAL DEALERS
Middlemen to Be Abolished and Only
Dealers Who Have Offered Coal at
Pair Prices to Be Retained.
By Kxclu-ilve Wire from The Associated Press.
New York, Oct. 28. The Commercial
Advertiser this evening says:
By their absolute disregard of the
public necessities in arbitrarily estab
lishing exorbitant prices for coal, the
retail dealers of this city have aroused
general dissatisfaction which has made
itself felt. Preparations are under way
by the leading coal operators in tho an
thracite region to establish eight gen
eral retail selling agencies in this city,
with sub-agencies In every quaitcr of
the city, including Brooklyn and the
territory above the Harlem.
The originator of the plan doing away
with the retailer and saving the public
one profit, is Thomas II. Watkins, one
of the members of the arbitration com
mission appointed by President Roose
velt , to investigate the recent coal
Dealers, who Ihiough the coal famine
have shown an Inclination to deal hon
estly with the consume! s and who have
not advanced prices beyond reason, will
be retained a distributing agents by
the coal operators, a percentage on
sales being allowed tlieni as remuner
ation. The unsciuptilous dealers, who
have used the strike as a means by
which to obtain exorbitant profits,
however, will be forced out of business. J
The number of distributing places for
coal will be reduced to eighty or a hun
dred. Xo large expenditure will be
made for yards, as most of the coal
under the new plan is to be unloaded
from the coal barges directly Into carts.
With touching unanimity all the, re
tailers seen today ridiculed the idea of
tlie coal companies establishing- their
own retail agencies. It was learned on
the highest authority, however, that
the plan is not only adopted but that
preparations for putting it Into nfeet
are being made.
The otllclal retail price continues at

St. Paul, .Minn,, Oct. 28. A dispatch
front Yorktown, Asslnlbola, says that
1,600 Doukhoubors, men, women and
children, have Just airlvcd at that
place. They entered the town singing
a weird hymn and carrying1 their sick
and Infants on stretchers. They are lu
want of food.
Special constables have been swon
In. The citizens are greatly excited,
Ottawa, Out., Oct. 28. Inquiry in oill
clal iiual'ters In regard to the reports
from the west about the Donkhob.irs
elicits the Information that there are a
number of them, probably 1,000 In all,
affected with the religious mania. They
tire going- from village to village among
their own people and It Is said that they
are likely to arrange' to meet In some
central place, probably at l'orkton, to
decide upon what they are going to do.
The lioukhobars believe it to be a sin
to hold domestic animals In restraint,
and they have, therefore, turned thtlr
cattle and horses loose upon the prairie.
They will not wear leather shoes or any
clothing produced from animals, and
the men and women have been yoking
themselves to the plow and wagons, A
large number of tho horses and cattle
have been seized by the government
and sold at public auction, The amount
realized, about .$20,000, will be used to
take care of the fanatics' when the win
ter sets in.
The superintendent of immigration,
Frank Pedley, has just reached here
from the Douhobar settlement, and .1.
O. Smith, the agent at Winnipeg-, is
also lit the city. They say that there Is
no suffering or starvation among- the
Doukhobars, but that a number of them
are alllicted with the religious mania.
A mounted police ofllcer, who took a
trip through the Doukhobar settlement,
near Buck Lake, on the 12th instant, re
ports that the Doukhobars in that set
tlement were everywhere busy thresh
ing, plowing, etc. They had thousands
of bushels of wheat of llrst-class qual
ity. They also cultivate a. large quan
tity of flax.
Winnipeg:. Man., Oct. 2S. While it is
true that there Is considerable unrest
among the Doukhoubors at Yorkton.
Mr. Moffatt, Dominion government
agent here, says that no Information
whatever has been received bearing on
the latest newspaper reports. The im
pression is that the Doukhoubors will
wander about among- the villages in
their scanty clothing until colder
weather shall sot in, when they will
put on warmer garb, and as they have
plenty of provisions, there is no fear
of starvation. As to going south, they
would like to reach a warmer climate,
but are not attempting to walk, and,
up to the present, have made no ar
rangements to go by rail.

Are the Principal Speakers The
Question of Trusts Reviewed.
By Exclusive Wire from 'I he Associated Press.

largest meetings of the Iowa campaign
were held here this afternoon und even
ing. Senator Allison delivered the
prlncipal address In the afternoon and
Secretary Shaw also spoke briefly, cov
ering his views of the tariff revision
and the "Iowa idea." Secretary Shaw
was the principal speaker tonight. His
address, In part, was as follows:
The campaign in Iowa lias assumed, It
seems to mo, more than merited notoriety.
1 confess o see nothing lu the Iowa plat
form which justified the controversy.
The tarilt planlc In our statu platform
is not a declaration In favor of tariff
revision, nor Is It a declaration iiiruinst
If the state convention of Iowa should
declare specifically for tarilt revision, or
for any specific remedy for trusts, l
doubt not tne Iowa delegation would be
very prompt 'to heed, and certainly thu
Iowa members of the cabinet will bring
the subject to the careful attention of the
president. This has not beon done as
yet, and therefore, neither tariff levisicn
nor nnti-tarlfC revision is a party nieiis
iii e hi this slate. Whether cougreis
would give heed to an utterance ol a
Mate convention in an ofL' year, on na
tional questions calculated to qualify or
enlarge the declarations contained in the
national platform, 1 am not prepared lo
say, though I remember that even the
members at tho Iowa delegation did not
consider themselves bound by the antl
Portu Rlciiu memorial passed In 1900 by
tho lower house of our general assembly.
flow soon we may pass a substitute
for the Dlngley tuilff law, 1 am nut
prepared to predict. The responsibility Is
with the conguss. I anticipate some op
position will be engendered anions: Re
publicans and Democrats alike If attempt
shall be made to remove the tariff, from
such .articles as are produced by large
corporations, popularly called trusts. Tho
idea is not novul. We can stand high
prices far better than we can stand Idly
Hefnre tho remedy can be applied, It
will become necessary to deteinilue the
fact whether a trust exists or not, und If
it exists, and that fact can be estab
lished, the Sherman law Is quite sufficient
to correct tho evil. Certainly no one will
wish to apply the Rruokenridge Idea of a
removal of the tariff ya tiust made goods
to an industry upon a naked rumor that
it Is contiolled by a monopoly, but it will
take no inoro evidence to tluotllo It un
der thu Sherman act Hum It will to lay
