The coal combination is considering what te de te keep up the price of coal. All agree that mere coal is being mined than is sold, that being a patent fact which cannot be disputed ; and all are equally agreed that everyone else is pro ducing mere than his share. The differ ence of agreement seems te be about the number of days that a suspension of min ing should take place at a time, whether three days a week, or a week or two weeks in a month. The precise value of this difference we don't quite under stand, or care te, being pretty sure that there is a chance hidden in it somewhere by which the greediest of the "com bined corporations expect 'te cheat the ethers ; since it seems clear enough that if all worked fairly together it would net matter when the suspension of mining took place or for hew many days at a time, se that it was for the stipulated t...
