Coal Famine at Muncie.


Muncie, Ind., Jan. 12. - The danger of a disastrous coal famine in Muncie grows hourly and though manufacturers, dealers, and private consumers are hoping for the best, things do not look especially encouraging. Among some manufacturers, conditions are improved over a few days ago, while with others necessity for fuel grows more pressing daily. Local glass factories seem to be better fixed in regard to fuel than leading industries in other lines. The Hemingray factory has plenty of coal on hand for immediate use and more on the way, but the price paid to secure it was very high. The Ball Bros. have no great surplus, but sufficient for present use.
