Anthracite Trust Company:  A bank whose capital is held by four hundred stockholders.

  • United States Investor. Vol. 31. No 27. Boston and New York, 1920: 2782. Print.

"Whether or not the anthracite trust is a law unto itself is a question which the United States Government will have to decide.  And the government inquiry into the operations of the trust or combine will get under way here tomorrow.

"In a series of articles from the anthracite region some time ago, I directed attention to the action of the operators in advancing the price of coal $1 a ton to the consumers beginning April 1 last.  The action was arbitrary.  Nobody was consulted outside the select circle of operating companies.  Not the consumer, at least."
