RHINE DWNERS TO PLEAD
ATTORNEY GENERAL OF NEW
FORK GRANTS THE PETITION
ASKED BY THE "AMERICAN."
"New York American" Has Wod
the First Battle Operators
Must Show Cause Why Attorney-General
Not Proceed A
gainstThern. New York, Oct. 2. The '-New York
American" has won its first battle in the
fight against the coal trust.
Upon the petition of the "American,"
Attorney-General Davies today decided
that the operators must show cause why
he should not proceed against them . un
der the anti-monopoly law.
At the attorney-general's direction sum
mons are to be issued in compelling the
great railroad companies to appear in Al
bany nest Wednesday and answer, if
they can, the charge of conspiracy made
by the "American."
This is only the first move in the peo
ple's fight through the ' "American" a
gainst the coal monopolists. Its import
ance, however, can hardly be exaggerat
ed. The action of the attorney-general
means that the powerful owners of A-
inerica's anthracite mines, who have
heretofore been boli'.ly aggressive, must
now j. lead. ,
Attorney-General Davies has rendered
his decision against the monopolists only
alter long and careful consideration. The
petition of the "New York American'
was presented September 1st. Since that
time and in spite of engiossing political
events, the attorney-general has been in
constant conference with his assistant,
judge Canao, who has been nominated
fay the republican party to succeed Mr.
The petition of the "American" pre
sented a strong, clear case against the
trust. It was there shown that the great
railroad companies, in defiance of the
law, owned and operated the anthracite
coal fields of Pennsylvania. It was shown
that these railroads had an absolute mo
nopoly of the hard coal supply of Ameri
ca, controlling nearly 95 per cent, of the
The telling point in the argument of
Attorney Clarence J. Shearn, who repre
sen ted the -'American" before the attorney-general,
was the exhibition of price
circulars demonstrating that the rail
roads, not content with a monopoly, con
epired together to fix . prices upon coal
and squeeze from the public every cent
posstoie tor a necessity ot lite. .
For two years it was shown, this con
spiracy to restrain trade has existed. Coni
petStioa has been completely crushed.The
few independent dealers have been throt
tled and the railroad presidents one of
whom declared they were God's chosen
representatives to guard the coal supply
of America held secret meetings and &
greed together what they would make the
people pay for their fuel.
These arguments, the exhibit of the
ince circulars in conclusive proot ot a
combination,. were listened to with eager
attention by the attorney-general. He
took the matter under advisement.
Then a word, in the shape of a supple
mental sffidavit, information gathered
by the "American's" representative
showing beyond the possibility of doubt
how the company was conducted.
This affidavit was the bare recital of
the affairs of the Temple Iron 'Company
a corporation bought by the railroads
acting together for the purpose of killing
competition, a company financed by the
railroads, its bonds guaranteed by them
and whose board of directors was made
up of the presidents of the railroads.

delphia and Reading Railway; B.

goes to demonstrate the loyalty to
union principles in the hearts of
unionists, though far away from the
scenes of much suffering in the coal
mining regions and other localities
affected by the strike.
It is believed that the sum of
$10,000 can be raised by the unions
of this city, and, with such an end
in view, the Portland printers have
instructed their president to issue
a call for a meeting of all the pres
idents of trade unions throughout
the city, including the officers of
the State Federation, Federated
Trades and Building Trades coun
cils, and the editor of the Labor
Press, and endeavor to have their
organizations take similar action.

Bide shows any sign of weakening. The
mine operators can, of course, take the
situation easily. ' They have plenty of
money and t'aeir bill of fare is not chang
ed nor its quanttty or quality altered be
cause the mines are shut down.
On the other hand there has been less
actual Buffering during this strike than
ever heretofore in a strike of like magni
tude. Yet the time is coming when ac
tual want will strengthen the hands of
the miaeowners aud make the situation
of the strikers desperate.
This is the condition of the actual parties
to the struggle, but they are only a hand
ful, compared to those having no part in
the fight, but a personal interest in ifs
settlement. The dispute falls heavily on
millions of consumers, who are deprived
of one of the greatest necessities of life,
and who are made to suffer inconven
ience now, and if the strike is not soon
pettled it will be actual distress when the
