San Francisco, Dec. 30.  [M. this no doubt means 1899.]  The coal famine in
this city is becoming serious.  The Roslyn Company refuses to supply the
local trade, as all the coal its boats can bring for the next two months will be
needed to fill contracts already on hand, and the trade must do without.  There
is more coal to be had at the mines, but bottoms [print; means lack of ships?]
cannot be found to bring it here.  A few nights ago a line of coal carts over
two blocks in length waited for coal on the waterfront.  The drivers built huge
fires to protect themselves from the bitter cold.  [expecting to get some from
Sydney and Newcastle later in month.  21 vessels are chartered to load coal in
Australia for SF.]  It is this latter business which has eaten into our colonial
trade, and has carried off our available coal tonnage, with no appearance of an
early cessation.    SKIP  The local outlook for any low-priced coal in 1900 is
very discouraging;  this is proving a material set back to our factories, where
fuel forms the leading article in the monthly expense account.  The coast
collieries are reaping a harvest, and they are pushing their product to a market
where quick sales and fair profit are awaiting them.   +

Receiver appointed by U. S. Court.  J. D. Spreckels & Bros. Co., having
exhausted all amicable means to get the board of directors of the Coos Bay,
Roseburg, & Eastern railroad to call a meeting of directors for the purpose of
accepting the resignation of said board, which they refused to do, were
consequently compelled to resort to more stringent measures, applying to the
U. S. court, Portland, for a receiver.  The court promptly and justly acted by
appointing W. S. Chandler to that position.  This will permit the company to
proceed unmolested by any board of directors, and will facilitate the handling
