Taking Issue with Director-General McAdoo'a declaration that coal car recently had been furnished to the mine more rapidly than the mine have been able to load them, the national coal aa-aoclatlon in a. formal statement charges that the car supply to the bituminous mints as a whole Is still Inadequate and cites the official figures of the geological survey.

Nebraska fuel consumers have ben preparing for the winter tune In a manner that pleaes transportation men. Storage by Individual consumers has been greater this season thin it has ever been befortv-tltho railroad men hope this fact will not deter others from ordering their winter's supply now If they have not already done so. It is said the railroads have more coal stored on their lines west of the Missouri river than they have had In many year, and that the east of thenv er' I also very heavy In Lincoln the L'urling-ton has a small mountain of coal in Its local yards. It Is more o-f an object to store coal at the farthest points from the mints first, iiliho it is s.iid the Iowa and Illinois reserve supply lias been made rather heavy. In Iowa a campaign was waged to get farmers and others who can burn wood to depend on that for fuel, and this will make It possible for that stale to get along with a less amount of coal.

The smaller amount the railroads hie compelled to haul in the bitter winter weather the greater atten tion they can pay to other business. railroad men look for a' congestion of business during. the winter because of the great amount of business they will be compelled to handlts to keep war forces moving. Ilallroad men expect the cast to be hardest hit by (but shortage during the winter, and If that is true It may be necc-ssury to draw on western sources of supply lo keep war Industries going In the eaat. If that comes to pass it will be difficult for thoae short of coal In the west to get It.

It. H. Aishlng. regional director of rail roads for the northwest haa issued a special warning to the railways within his Jurisdiction on the pressing need of Increasing the movement of coal. He says that every employe must be kept alive to the situation and that the matter cannot be overstated.
