We again wish to warn the public

j wood and coal situation.
Many of our people are not taking
a conditions seriously and probably
Vtlnk we either do not know what
talking about or are unduly
The facta are these: The coal

und probably by Jan. 1st the
.: es 4' 111 be producing the normal
'..junt and the railroads will be
andlL-g the normal out-put of the
'mine but will this meun plenty of
Tcoal for us? '
V All mines contract their cool In
v .montba of April and May as a
nd at this season of the year
; there Is no coal to be had except on
contract. The mines contracted for
(their complete out put for this sea-
Uon of the year long before this tlmo
r therefore they have all their coal
vsold that they can possibly put on
' The mines have been idle for 4 3
lays and the out put for that time
;hat we expected did not materialize
nd can not be obtained. Thus you
He we must rely upon the contracts
Jf our local dealer for coal and they
'ontracted on the basis of Rotting
foal regularly during the past 45
days and that with that amount In
)lne hands of the public the contract
lor the month of December and fol-
lowing months would meet the de-
tnand. which would have been true
tad they received the coal but fall-
ing to get these orders filled It leave
at leant 50 per cent short on coal.
$his U trn of all coal dealers over
the country hence we can not expert
Jo get over 50 per cent of what we
need this winter.
' Therefore It - up to you to do
v kat you can not us. We will do
1 we can to get all te coal and
i od here we can get and distribute
as nearly equal as we know how
t we know that we will not get
Iough to give each one all they are
&utomed to using in the winter
.4ie. What we suggest Is that you
t along on aa little fuel aa you can
V do with. On warmer days use your
t olf stoves. Do not heat your rooms
Any hotter than you can be comfort-
i'.le with. Most of us us more fuel
Vn la needed for heating In cold
wfftther. With heavy clothing and
closed rooms It will not take a very
'hot room if keep comfortable In.
r Then those who have wagons anJ
Vanm will be forced to get wood.
i Many who can get wood have not
( ne this. They have depended upon
ting coal and continued to gath-
. i their crops. This Is a dangerous
y for we might have several days
very cold weather and they could
i get wood and thereby put the

DERRICK AIIO IB-
G H If J ERY EOT
The S'uydcr OH Association was
burned out about 6:30 o'clock last
Monday night. The derrick aheds
and all liht tools were totally de-
stroyed. The engine Is ruined. The
boiler which was ahedded some dis-
tance away was not damaged and the
big oil tanks and about 1000 feet of
wire cable are in tact. All other
stuff Is lost. There is suspicion that
the place waa set on fire. (Mr. Pax-
ton states that he had left there Jnst
a little while before the fire was dis-
covered. The directors are thinking over
what to do next and there seems to be
a sentiment generally that the ef-
forts to get a well should be kept up.
Mr. Lacy says the boys have worked
hard and will do so again and we
cannot afford to quit now with a hole
14 0 feet deep.
The delay worries Mr. Lacy. He
says we are going to have an oil well
yet hut this calamity will delay the
accomplishment. Mr. Kosser states
that he cannot say yet what will be
done and will await a full considera-
tion of all facts and conditions.
Pmd ll.ill U Holds Good
It is understood the question Is to
be carried to the Supreme Court of
tho United States. In discuaslng the
question Judge Wilson alluded to
certain rulings that have been mad
by the Supreme Court and considers
that the matter is well settled. Tho
Supreme Court classifies occupations
as useful and non-us-'ful and Judge
Wilson say 6:
"Our opinio:: Is that pool hall op-
eration comes tinder the lattcV class
of occ!!retlons If the pool halls become-hurmful.
vicious or bad tho
power of the State can be extended
to absolute prohibition for them.
Pool halls nf not inherently bad.
they are not necessarily vicious.
Some are bad some are not but the
niifxitlnn imnlles an Issue of fact. W
I 'I -
have not pensidered facts presented
I in tnts case ji was nui n-i -:
Tool halls are recognized as nonuse-
' ful occupations and mny become
vicious. Tbe supreme ioun uua
in its opinion that no proof Is requlr-
ed to eJablistf the fact that the ten-
dency of pool balls Is to become vic-
ious. Our view. Is that whether they
are harmful In Texas is a question of
fact for the people of the State
through their Legislature to deter-
mine. On Its very fa?e this law
shows that the people already hav
decided that pool halls arc not for
the moral uplift of tho State and
they should be prohibited in the in-
terest of public morals. They have
passed on that fact and It is not our
province to po behind their finding
which Is conclusive.
"Such being our view we deny th
application for temporary Injunction
land do not continue in effect the tem
porary restraining order issued last
spring. This State law therefore.
will go into effect immediately on
the flllnp of th's decree."
