100 Years Ago: Belleville Coal Situation Relieved

The Intelligencer January 30, 1918 (page 5)

“Coal Situation Relieved. The coal situation in this city was considerably relieved today by the arrival here of a few cars of hard coal and a couple of cars of soft coal. One car of soft coal was yesterday procured from the G. T. R. yard here.

Twelve tons of hard coal were this morning taken out of the cellar of a residence on West Bridge street, on order of the owner, who, with members of his family is away for the winter.”
