Ice dealers yesterday agreed to ac
eede partially to Mayor Baker's de
mands for lower rates to consumers
The dealers announced a willingness to
sell four 25-pound coupons for 70 cents.
At present the rate for 100 pounds Is

cook or 300 pounds. In which case the
rate is 70 cents a hundred.
Mayor Baker has taken the proposi
tion under advisement until today.
while the new rate offered Is a re
Auction It may be that the Mayor will
consider It too limited in that it does'
not affect Ice sold for cash.
A conference was held yesterday
morning in Mayor Baker's office with
A. Rlddell. of the Liberty Coal & Ice
Company, and W. C. Hoi man. of the
Ico Delivery Company. At that time
It was announced the companies were
unwilling to grant the 70-cent rate
.for 100-pound purchases, but .would
grant an 80-cent rate. Later Mr. Hol
inan telephoned to the Mayor that the
70-cent rate would be granted.
Ch Sales Held I'p.
Ivan Humason. special Investigator
for the city, made a study of the ice
business and reported that 70 cents for
100 pounds of Ice would give a fair
profit for the companies. Accordingly
.Mayor BaKer demanded that the com
panies drop to 70 cents a hundred or
stand the brunt of prosecution under
the anti-trust ordinance of the city
It was reported by Mr. Humason that
a combine exists In the city. The deal
ers had been given until yesterday to'
make their answer.
The ice companies as represented by
Mr. Rlddell and Mr. Holman agreed to
turn over to the Janitors in apartment
houses supplies of ice at 60 cents for
each 100 pounds, the Janitors to dis
pose of the ice as they saw fit. It
was agreed that the companies should
sell four 25-pound coupons for 80 cents
This later was cut to 70 cents." Ice sold
on a cash basts, the dealers said, would
have to remain at 1 cent a pound.
Cash Trade Not Desired.
This Is where the sticking point Is
with Mayor Baker. He says he be
lieves all consumers should get advan
tage of the 70-cent rate. The dealers
say they want to get rid of the cash
purchase business. s It is unsatisfac
tory to them because of their delivery
men. Mayor Baker has Instructed City At
torney LaRoche to prepare an ordi
nance to present to the Council tomor
row morning aimed to correct thlj
trouble. The measure will require the
dellverymen to leave statements show
ing the weight of the ice delivered. It
Is planned to have the City Sealer
of Weights and Pleasures keep careful
tab on . deliveries. . . .
In announcing that the 70-cent rate
would be granted Mr. Holman said he
was speaking only for his own com
pany, but that he understood the oth
ers would do the same. He made the
distinct statement, however, that pur
chasers to get advantage of the 70
cent rate for 100-pound orders must go
to the offices of the companies and
buy the coupons. . He says they will
not be sold by drivers. This arrange
ment also may be a sticking point with
Negotiations with the companies are
not at an end. Mr. Baker will go into
the subject further today.
CLARK PLOT CONFESSED
fContlnued From First Pa ire.)
Did she tell you where to get It?
No. She asked me to get a gun,
and told me to get It; be sure to get
it, and told rrre if I could not get one,
"I will see that you get one."
The Klelneau brothers called at Mr.
Clark's office in the Yeon bulldlnir Sun
day, shortly after noon, and as a ruse
to get him Into the automobile the
older man told Mr. Clark that he wished
him to look at some real estate. After
getting in the machine and driving two
blocks a revolver was pointed at Mr.
Clark by the older man. The two men
grappled and fought fiercely during a
wild ride down Washington street,
which was only terminted when the
machine hit a pile of lumber, throwing
the occupants out of the car.
Hearing to lie Today.
The preliminary hearing set for yes
terday for the two men was postponed
in Municipal Court until today at the
request of Deputy District Attorney
Deich. They are charged with assault
with a dangerous weapon.
Mrs. Clark was In court yesterday
morning and seemed to be greatly agi
tated. She also said that her Inten
tions Sunday were to try and force Mr.
Clark to remarry her.
It was said last night that the state
would probably try Mrs. Clark again
for her sanity. Mr. Clark said that he
does not care to have his former wife
prosecuted, but that he will prosecute
the young man.
