Advantage Of
Buckwheat Coal
rpHE State Fuel Administrator has limited to two tons the
-t- amount of Stove and Nut that may be delivered to
domestic consumers during October. .
This is because the Government needs these two sizes of
coal in camps and on board ships to use in cooking for our
fighters.
There is no limit on the Buckwheat Size. \
We urge our customers to put into their cellar one or
more loads of Buckwheat coal and use it in conjunction with
Broken, Egg, Stove or Nut Coal. The Buckwheat coal fills
up the chinks between the large sizes thereby making the fire
more easily regulated.
Buckwheat coal is recommended for early Winter heating. It
makes an intense, even heat and responds quickly to the dampers.
For banking your fires at night, Buckwheat coal will save you
large quantities of your regular furnace coal.
Last Winter dealers were unable to get Buckwheat coal in suf
ficient quantities to meet the demands—a like condition is probable
within the near future. Now is the time to put in a reserve. . .
The Federal Fuel Administration will not agree to give coal deal
ers certain designated sizes of coal.
The dealer gladly accepts what is sent to him. Consumers should *
notify the dealer of their willingne-*-. to accept the size of coal available.
/
White Ash Broken, White . t ckwheat and Bituminous coal
may be had without delay,

LEGAL CONTEST
| NEARING CLOSE
Argument in Carlisle Court in
Case of Mechanicsburg vs.
Valley Railways Co.
Mechanicsburg, Pa., Oct. 24.—A
long drawn-out legal contest neared
its close yesterday morning, when
Judge Donald P. McPherson, of Ad
ams county, sitting as the presid
ing judge in the Common Pleas
Court of Cumberland county, heard
the argument on the exceptions filed
on his opinion In the case of the bor-!
ough. of Mechanicsburg against the i
Valley Railways Company. Involving |
the charging of $1,200 annually fori
the privilege of maintaining Its trol- |
ley line in the town. For years th& j
case has been In the courts, being i
appealed from the county courts to
the Superior and the Supreme Courts
and then returned to the county i
court for final determination.
The question Involved concerns:
the right of a borough to collect the
consideration for a franchise in an- i
nual payments differing in size and
extending over a terms of years. The j
ordinance passed by the borough
council provided for payment as j
follows: First three years, nothing: .
next two years. SSO annually; next |
five years. SIOO annually, and there
after $1,200 annually.
The defendants seek to avoid pay
ment on the ground that the sum
is unreasonable and contends that
the amount to be paid represents a
direct tax on the corporation, which j
is not within the province of a rnu- i
nicipality, and also that, if in the!
exercise of the police power of the
borough, it is unreasonable and ex- (
orbitanL
The borough contends, in reply to,
the argument of the defense, that i
the sum specified in the ordinance !
is the consideration ao be paid in !
return for the granting of the fran- j
ehise to operate within the bor
ough.
The opinion handed down by
Judge McPherson several months,
ago determined that the contentions j
of the plaintiff were correct, and ;
both litigants tiled exceptions. The ;
argument yesterday was in support;
of the exceptions.
E. M. Biddle, Jr., of Carlisle, and ;
Harry M. Zug, of Mechanicsburg, i
were attorneys for the borough,!
while Walter M. Sharp, of Chambers- i
burg, represented the defendant.
The decision overruling or main
taining the exceptions filed by the l
defense will put an er.d to this case, j
hard fought by brilliant lawyers for
years, and decide an irr portant ques- ;
tion dealing with the rights and rela- j
tlons of municipalities and corpora- |
tlons.
