PAGE EIGHT. THIS DAILY COURIER, CONNEULSVILLE, PA. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1918. INCREASED PRICK ARE EXPECTED BY COALWERATORS Airuee of 25 to 40 Cents Per TUB Predicted Within Short Tine. NOT SUFFICIENT MARGIN Bttwec* C**U of Prediction and the Tnttmt Fixed Prices, it' Co»t.'»tlon ·f Producers; Coat Sheets Skew Hi(k F%«res, Sometimes Above $3. There U a feeling jn coal producing circles that an advance tot 25 to 40 ceats per ton in the' "at the mine" "price of coal will be made within the next 10 diys or two weeks. This expectation Ii based upon three happenings of recent occurrence. The first was the granting a week ago, or a raise of 40 cents a ton to the operators of the Cumberland and neighboring districts. The second was the privilege allowed the producers in the thin ·vein mining districts of Pennsylvania to chcrge 60 cents a ton more for their product. Both of these advances followed a presentation to the Furl Administration of data showing the inability of 1i»e operators in the ri-gions mentioned to produce coal and sell it at x profit at the prices nxed by the President The third factor, taken as an indi- ~ cation of an advance which will ap- to the Plttsburg, Connellsvflle and ; "Virginia districts, is the most leeent order of the Fnel Administration which eliminates jobbers' com- ·missions-after-April-1. -This onler is taken_by the trade to imply, if it not .expressly state, that an advance in price, will be made sufficient to cover 'the allowance by producers of a com- lalwlon to jobbers when the new rule . becomes effective. There is no inti- rct«ao« aa to whether or no the ad- vane* will more than cover the usual Jobbers'- commission. When the order eliminating job /rs' commission becomes effective 'Jiey * -will be obliged to look to the producer for their compensation. "Without an advance in the permitted selling price operators- contend that they cannot par a commission. They further contend that with the constantly rising prices for materials and supplies and other increased costs of production, the ruling set prices do not afford sufficient profit. Coal operators in the Pittsburs and Weit Virginia districts have repeatedly warned the Fuel Administration that without an advance In selling prices in the near future they will be compelled to close down some of their mines. For months they have been running along at aa average of J5 per cent of mine capacity which has made low cost of production out cf the Question. The monthly cost sheets, vrhich are sent to the Federal Trade Commission, are reported to hare TEE VARAHOOfT. "GiATES OF GLADNESS."--A »ve part p aotoplay in which Madge Evaus, ·The "World's Kiddie Star," appears! as an- artist's model, is being present- j ed today. This new picture gives the popular little actress an excellent role and she doe* some of -the best actiii? of her short, but highly successful, career in It. The story is an unusual one -and is full of interesting, entertaining incidents. From start to finish it is enthralling and attention- holding. George MacQuarrie, who has won many friends through his work ill other "VTorld pictures, is seen in a forceful magnetic role in which his splendid acting abilities are seen to the best advantage. Roscoo "Fatty" Artrackle. supported by Al SL Jolui, is appearing in "Out "West," a two reel comedy. In his new comedy, "Fatty" plays the role of a reformer, I successfully, albeit very humorously. ] Thrown off a freight train in the heart j of a western desert "Fatty" lands | eventually in the Tillage of "Mad, Dog," described as the toughest, wiltl-' est and wooliest town in the west.' Here our hero mixes up with more , bad men than Nick Carter evci imagined in his wildest flights of fancy and finally after cleaning them out sets out to reform the whole torn, with the help of a pretty Salvation ' Army girl, several hundred feet o f ; film and a barrel full of comedy situ- j ations. THE ABCADE. The new bill presented at the Arcade theater yesterday Toy the "Eon Ton Revue company opened to the usual packed house and again demonstrated their ability as real enter- i tainers. The hill _is entitled "Oh' John" and Tecfc Murdock in the title role keeps his audience in perpetual good hnmor with "his" eccentricities. It is rumored that Teck Murdock stands seven feet one inch in his socks and claims the title of the human scissors. The company is well balanced and with Mr. irardoek as the "big man the show is up to the minute in ail respects. Iris Kennedyvand tho "Ole Jass Four" are featured in new numbers. The Hawaiian guitar im- mitutions were repeatedly encored. The special scenery and lighting effects add greatly to the show and help to make up a real musical comedy show. One who wants to see a real up to the minute musical show will j make no mistake in seeing this one. The management of the Arcade sure picked a good one when he booked "The Vengence and the Woman" pic- i ture as it is one that holds "attention at all times, full of thrills and shows real cowboys, horses and all the wonderful things that they do in their country. The show and the same picture will be repeated today. ORPHEUS TJIEATEB. "Mdi-Y GO GET 'EM"'.--Margarita Fischer, one 01 the mobt charming girls on the motion picture screen and one of the most popular of stage In- genues, is given a.refined tomboy role shown that it costs considerably more | in her new offering, "Molly Go Get than the "filed" price to deliver coai, 'Em." Molly is one of those irrcpres- OB boerd cars at tipples. In some [bis younger sisters, not yet formally instances the producing costs have j introduced to society, whose elder sis- been shown to be in excess of ?3.00|ter's beaux and party affairs are on- per ton. It is Oils condition which has caused the operators to urge a reTiifoh upward of the government Trices. The prices ftzed on August 2t last vied by her as the most desirable elements of life.

The play is a forcible story of the struggles of a country girl in a large city with its numerous pitfalls and temptations. The thrilling episodes arc a potent lesson for young | men and women and should be seen ty ! all. Next week also has an abundance | of good things in store for playgoers.

Retailers do not anticipate that any change will be made in the charges they' are permitted to add to mine cost, in case there is an advance in the" fixed prices, although the sross coet to consumers will be increased by whatever increase is authorized in the prices producers may be allowed to charge dealers. experiences in this thrilling photoplay are typical of that of thousands ol American girls stranded at the outset of the war In Europe, many ot whom missed the pleasant adventures that happened to Miss Burke. Karl Dietitz, an. ex-lieutenant of the German army is responsible for the accuracy and correctness of tho German army maneuvers shown in this picture. XHE 90ISSOK.
