Coal Begins to Move on Maryland Canal

Hagerstown, Md., Nov. 25.—Coal is arriving on the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal at Williamsport for the first time in a month, navigation haying been practically stopped as a result of the coal miners' strike in the Western Maryland coal fields.

Several boatloads of coal reached Williamsport during the latter part of the past week, and, it is expected that there will be an increase in traffic now that the mines are being operated on a larger scale.
