There Is no doubt that the move of the p«nnsylvanla Itullroad In llxlug a new sched ulo for hauling coal from tho mines to tidewater, tidewater, If It Is not the tlrst. gun of a coal war Is at any rate a measure of protection for tho Interests of tho Pennsylvania company as against, tho now gigantic Heading Coal Trust. The exact points of lUo reducUon In coal rates, so far as tho Pennsylvania pcoplo urn willing to have them appear on the record, are best given in tho letter which was sent out on Monday last.

If It was to retain the product of collieries which It has been transporting lor a number of yean past, to inter Into similar arrangements. / This change in the manner of dealing with thn anthracite coal trarlio necessarily requires an ad jUBtment of the rates for such transportation upm tho basis of contracts to whirli i have already referred, referred, for the reason that the amount received for the transportation must necessarily tie the dlflerenco between the percentage agreed to bo paid for the coal and the prices tor tue coal, In- eluulug freight, realized at destination. . The terms ot these contracts have been published repeatedly as bcinn lid per cent, ot tho seilliu price at tide for prepared sizes, and at dllferen percentages for sizen lower tnan prepared, I he average price at tide on prepared sizes Is now, say S;|.CO per ton. 41) per cent, of which, representing the transportation rate, would bo A1.44, while our present rate, as you are aware. Is *t.iO. It Is therefore necessary to name a rate ot $1.44 to seaboard seaboard at New Vork, which we will now dn. I would further Btate, however, that if the prices of coal are changed, the transportation rates will be decreased ur increased correspoudiugly, in the same ratio of 40 percent, of tho tolling price at tide.
