Coal Operators Adopt Price Scale. Pineville, Ky., Oct. 8 - Kentucky coal
bins will not go empty if coal operators of Bell and Harlan counties can pre
vent. Practically all of the larger operators in both counties have already
put into effect the Cincinnati price agreement, which provides for six dollar
coal, f.o.b. mines, with not less than 50 per cent of production going to
Kentucky domestic dealers. Operators were glad to settle on a uniform price
basis which is satisfactory to the Government and were quick to accept the
Cincinnati plan, which was worked out this week. The car supply, however,
shows no steady improvement, though it is hoped short hauls to Kentucky
points, with the L&N road retaining possession of cars, will bring them back
more quickly for loading.
