Progressive Age A little While ago the coal barons met in New York City, and by a formal vote decided to advance the price of coal for seventy millions of people one dollar per ton. The other day they had another meeting and they decided to restrict the output tins year a (Treat many million tons. In this way they expect to cut down the expenditure in wages and advance the price of coal above its present exorbitant rate. It seems almost incredible that the American people will permit such impositions to be practiced upon them. Weare now paying, in this northwestern country, three or four dollars a tori more for coal than we ought to pay, and the chances are that we will have to pay another dollar per ton to keep uur families warm. We have to thank the coal barons and the railroad magnates for this imposition upon us. ai    sells    at    the breakers from 91.66 to 02.00 per ton, We have been paying from seven to eight dollars for it in the northwest. lf the people of this republic will tolerate any such tyranny for any great length of time they deserve to be called The officers are:    IL A.

As will beseen the league does not propose to nominate a city ticket, but no license candidates will get their votes. Besides this, the ministers and several of the church organizations are constantly at work; meetings are being held in the city and outside and every possible pressure is being brought to bear to make converts to the cause. All seem to be imbued with a sense ot responsibility as to the character of men whom it is necessary to elect for mayor aud aldermen if prohibition is to carry, aud it is safe to predict that if it wius, which now seems strongly probable, men will be elected who will be in sympathy with the cause and be vigilant in enforcing Hie laws to uphold it.
