(AP) -- A Japanese company has broken off negotiations to purchase strip-mined coal from Montana, Baying it would not be a profitable venture and citing opposition from Western ranchers. The proposed deal was for the Mitsui Mining Co. of Tokyo to make large purchases of Western coal for shipment through Oregon ports. Farmers and ranchers, whose land sits atop federal coal reserves, oppose strip mining and said they had been told any exploitation would be to meet the domestic energy crisis, not for export purposes. Mitsui officials in Tokyo said today the main reason talks were slopped was that such a .purchase would not have been profitable. "Our company imported 12,000 tons of Montana coal in August, but the freight charges were much higher than we had expected and it did not pay," said one company executive. The officials said opposition to strip mining from a ranchers'^ group "was another fac tor" but not the principal one. They said talks might be re sumed in the future if the cosl Clinton Relays Suggestions For Economic Policy Democrat Bill Clinton, w h i U running for Congress In thj 3rd District, sent a telegram ti President Ford Sunday contain ing nine . suggestions for in elusion in the administration economic policy.
