The number of passengers carried in 1870
was 96,667, and the number of tons of freight
moved during the same period was 394,905

whole tonnage being 22,277 tons less than in
1869. This decrease was owing to a falling
oil' in the through Coal shipments of 47,209
tons, in consequence mainly of the diminished
demand for Ocean Steam Coals after the break
ing out of the French war in July last. In
other articles the tonnage shows an increase
over that of 1869 of 24,932 tons. To show
the exaet changes in tonnage, as compared
with the previous year, the following table is

The result of the year's business, as condens

ingdon Office, may be stated as follows:
Receipts over cost of working the Road, $120,952 44
From which are to be deducted the following
items paid at this Office and not embraced in
the foregoing statements, viz:
Drawback on coal,— $15,659 65

Heretofore it has been customary in making
up the Annual Report to omit the deduction
of the last mentioned items, and to allow them
to appear in the Treasurer's cash statement,
but it is believed the present mode is•the bet
ter way of exhibiting accurately what the net
earnings of the Road are, and for this reason
it is now adopted.
The policy of progressive improvements in
all departments of Construction and Repairs
has been continued throughout the past year;
the good results from which have been mani
fest, in the greater freedom from accidents and
in the diminished cost of operating the Road.
The First Mortgage Loan of the Company
fell due on the first day of October last, at
which time overtures were made to the hold
ers of the bonds to extend the time of payment
thereof, for the period of twenty years. Since
then, all the holders of these bonds—excepting
a few in number, and for a small amount—
have accepted those overtures, and it is believ
ed that the few who have not yet signified
their assent will soon unite with those who
hove, and thus complete the extension of the
Loan. The terms of the extension are the
same as those recommended at your last An
nual Meeting, excepting that the interest is
made payable in gold.
The efforts of your managers to sell the coal
lands belonging to the company have so far
proved unavailing on account of the great dull
ness in the coal trade during the past year.—
It is hoped, however, that a change for the bet
ter wilt soon take place, when property of the
kind alluded to will command a fair price.
Another year's experience has demonstrated
with renewed force the fact, that it is to the
development and extension of the local trade
and o pusiness of your Road that its future pros
perity is chiefly to be expected. To show this
the following short narrative of events may not
prove uninteresting At Riddlesburg the new
furnace was in active blast during the whole
of the past year, adding largely to the tonnage
and travel of your Road ; .d the Second
Stack, at the same place, has been completed
and is now ready to "blow in." This addi
tional furnace will, during the present year,
more than double the tonnage and travel to
and from that point, which is about midway on
the line of your Road. Only two years ago the
spot where this villlge now stands was unin
habited. It can now boast of having two first
class furnaces, of a capacity to make from 353
to 400 tons of p:g metal weekly; houses are
going up rapidly, and and an industrious pop
ulation is fast coming in to perform the labor
incident to a place of the kind. All this has
been accomplished in the short period men
tioned; by the enterprise and capital of the
Kemble Coal and Iron Co. The coal that sup
plies these furnaces is run down by gravity
from the mines—a distance of less than two
miles—at a cost but little over that of min
ing it; and the ores and limestones are obtain
ed almost as cheaply, over your Road, within
an average distance of ten miles. At Hope
well—two miles further on—the Cambria Iron
Company are preparing to erect one or more
furnaces during the present year, and there
can be but little doubt that this company will
soon vie with the Kemble Coal and Iron Com
pany in the production of metal. The increas
:ng demands for ores to supply, not only the
furnaces on the line of your Road, but those
located along the Pennsylvania Railroad for
long distances east and west of Huntingdor,
has caused increased activity in the opening
of new mines and in the digging of ores. It
has also prompted a more intelligent search
for other veins and deposits, which is constant
ly being rewarded by new discoveries, and is
tending to give a better knowledge of the re
gion. During the past month these investiga
tions have lead to the finding of large deposits
of pipe ores near Mt. Dallas, and a considera
ble sum has lately been expended at that sta
tion to give enlarged facilities for the loading
of these ores into cars. These industries and
activities on the line of your Road thus briefly
alluded to, arc so recent and entirely new that
the aggregate results in tonnage, so far, have
not been very large ; but they promise a rapid
growth, and indicate most clearly that in their
extension and increase lie, to a great extent,
the future welfare of your Company.
Your Managers deeply regret that the Penn
sylvania Canal Company have failed to go on
with their promised enlargement of the Juni
at a Division of their Canal, to make it a Slack
water Navigation. The want of this enlarged
outlet from Huntingdon for boats of from•2so
to 300 tons burden, prevents the shipment of
very large quantities of Broad Top Coal to
tide-water and intermediate points
Mention was made in the last Annuai R-
port of your Managers, that the Bedford and
Bridgeport Railroad Company contemplated
the immediate construction of a road from Mt.
Dallas to Bedford, and when it was completed
to lease :t - to your Company. In May last a
survey was made by your Company's Resident
Engineer, for the location of the proposed
Road between the two places named ;and la
ter in the season his services were again grant
ed to extend the survey from Bedford to.
Bridgeport—the latter. place being twenty
three miles from Bedford and on the line of
Pittsburg and Connellsville Railroad. Soon
after the last survey was made dissensions
arose in the Board of Managers and among the
Stockholders of the Bedford and Bridgeport
Railroad. Company, which have since been the
subject of much legal controversy; and their
determination is still pending in the Courts.—
Most of the Road is now under contract, how
ever, and that portion of it lying between Mt.
Dallas and Bedford, will, in all probability, be
finished by the middle of July next. The com
pletion of this link is of much importance to
your Compnay, and if a lease of it is made—as
at first contemplated—will make Bedford the
southern terminus of your Road, instead of
Mt. Dallis. This fact, however, cannot be de
termined until legal controversies now going
on have been settled.
• In conclusion, your Managers desire to add,
that the satisfactory operation of the Head
during the past year is in a great measure due
to the efficient management of J. McKillips,
Esq., Superintendent, and John Fulton, Esq.,
Resident Engineer, whose detailed report, are
By order of the Board.
B. ANDREW KNIDET,
WHY COUNTRY PAPERS ARE DEARER
THAN CITY PAPERS.--$5 A YEAR FOR NEWS
PAPERS.-A substantial old farmer, in the west
ern part of the county, writes us as follows :
"1 want to subscribe for a newspaper. You
charge two dollars a year for yours, but I can
get a city paper, with much more reading in
than the JOURNAL has, for $1,50, and by tak
ing a large number in a club, I can get them
for less. Now if yon will agree to let me have
yours at the same price that I can get the city
paper for, I will subscribe for the JOURNAL.
What do you say ?"
It gives us pleasure to receive letters from
farmers and laborers—they are always honest
and mean exactly what they any. Now, neigh
bor, we will be equally frank and honest with
you. We cannot print our paper and furnish
it to you for the price you state, and we will
give you our reasons for it. In the first place,
the city paper, that you refer to, is a reprint of
a city daily, and the reading matter that it con
tains has been paid for several times in all prob
ability, before you pay for it. Let us explain;
suppose it is the prospectus of the Philadel
phia Sun that you have before you. We will
say Sun merely for the illustration. The Sun
publishes a daily, tri-weekly and a weekly
edition. The reading matter is "set up," as
printers say, and the hands that set it up are
paid for setting it up on the daily, or in other
words the daily is supposed to pay all the ex
penses incurred in setting the necessary types
for it. The subscription and advertising of the
daily ought to pay all expenses and they gen
erally do. After the types are once set any
number of papers can be struck off. When
the daily subscribers are supplied the princi
pal matter of the daily is put aside and a tri
weekly edition is printed. The same types
that were set for the daily—the same reading
matter—is now put into the tri weekly, at no
additional cost; then the same matter is set
aside again and put into a weekly edition, and
offered to you at a trifling cost. It has been
paid for twice before you are asked to pay for
it, and now the only cos Hof the article offered
to you is the actual cost of pressing off fifty
two sheets, which can be done in two or three
minutes, by improved machinery, and the
cost of the paper, addressing and packing.
But very frequently a great quantity of the
matter goes in several other papers besides
those mentioned, and thus they get paid over
and over again, and consequently they can
furnish the Sun much cheaper than we can
furnish the JOURNAL as we have to set every
type of the reading matter of our paper, week
after week, the whole year round.
But in the second place our paper which
costs more, is worth more to you. It gives you
a thousand items of interest, matters that are
familiar to you, that the city paper, printed
hundreds of miles away from you, cannot give
you. It tells you who of your relatives and
friends have suffered by fire, who has met with
a severe accident, who has failed in business,
who has died, who has been married, who has
a sale and what is for sale, when the courts
meet, whose accounts are to be confirmed,
whose property is sacrificed at Sheriff's sale,
who has gone into the hotel business, who has
opened or closed out a large stock of goods ;
it gives you the markets of the neighborhood,
it states the county finances, who has opened
up a manufacturing establishment; it advo
cates a thousand things which are of interest
to you personally; it watches the administra
tion of public affairs and shows up all extrav
agance and thus saves you, no doubt, two or
three times the subscription price in taxes ;
it advocates manufactures and railroads which
make a market worth hundreds of dollars at
your door, and—" Bless you," we think we
hear you exclaim, "stop I stop I that is suffi
cient!" Well, well, just as you have it; if you
will take the JocaxeL, all right, but we don't
want you to stop at the JorruNat.. First and
foremost every man should take his county
paper. No man should think of doing without
it. It is almost as necessary in this age as
bread and butter. After the Bible comes the
county newspaper and it is extremely doubt
ful whether a man can be a liberal christain
without it. But we contend that you ought to
I take both the county and the city paper.
You should spend at least five dollars a year
for newspapers. This would be only $lOO in
twenty years to instruct your family in the
necessary every day life—iu the ways of the
world. Is it not a very small sum for so great,
an advantage? Every man, say we, should set
$5 a part, each year for newspapers and he
would find it of more advantage in twenty
years than investing the same amount in Uni
ted States bonds. It will pay a hundred per
cent. Try it. Let's have your subscriptions.

PENNSYLVANIA IRON ORE BEDS.—We
clip the following from the United Slates Rail
road and Mining Register
An important discovery has been recently
made in Morrison's Cove, Blair county, Cen
tral Pennsylvania, end in its ,itth eastern
corner, known by the local 111,11 C of Leather-.
cracker Cove. The Cambria Iron Lompany
purchased, last year, a range of ore rights, on
which shafts had developed a nearly vertical
bed of solid brown hematite iron ore from 22
to 20 feet thick, the outcrop of which runs
along the outer edge of the Limestone (Lower
Silurian) formation which forms the bottom
or central area of the cove, where the slates
begin to form the base 'end slope of Tussey
Mountain. The discovery of the.m stratum of
ore was in-itself of great importance, and mesh
new light on the vexed question of the law •of
our brown hematite deposits; helping much
to explain theappearance of ore in similar
nations in other parts of the State, for exam
ple at the Mt. Pleasant mines, in Path, Valley
west of Chambersburg ; and giving us a very
sure clue to the discovery of other deposits on
the same geological horizon now entirely con
Oue of these shafts was 52 feet deep. To
drain it a tunnel was commenced at the creek
in the bottom of the cove, 250 yards distant,
and driven towards the shaft, which it struck
at a depth of 45i feet from the top,. or surface.
For 213 yards this tunnel passed through a suc
cession of limestone rock, standing nearly on
edge. It then suddenly entered a mass of ore,
n holly unexpected. For 52 feet it passed
through this ore, so hard that gun-powder was
used all the way.
To learn more of this mass, a 371 foot deep
air shaft was dropped from the surface to the
tunnel. 'the first 18 feet of the shaft went
through loose ore; the rest was as solid as that
passed through in the tunnel.
After passing through the ore, the tunnel
was driven 51 feet through yellow clay, and
then entered the 26 foot ore bed, to drain
which it had been originally projected.
Here, then, we have a double bed of solid
brown hematite iron ore of the amazing thick
ness of 1031 feet, with a parting of 51 feet of
This gigantic ore bed descends wi h regu
lar walls at a nearly vertical inclination, and
to an unknown distance, under th, roots of
the Tussey mountain. If continued eastward
between the limestone and slate formations, it
must rise, between the limestone and slate
formations, in Path Valley and the great
valley of Chambersburg. This it actually does
at the lit. Pleasant furnace mines. There is
every reason then to believe that it underlies
the whole intervening country, but at depths
which are sometimes enormous. For under the
Broad Top coal region it must lie at a depth
of four or five miles, that being the space oc
cupied by the Lower Silurian, Upper Silurian
and Devoni slate, sandstone mid limestone
formations from No. 111 to No. XII. Whether
the ore bolds anything like its Leather-cracker
size the whole distance, will never be known;
but all analogy teaches us that its thickness
will vary all along the line, and vanish to noth
ing under certain areas. Whether tills re
markable deposit runs underground in a straig.ht
and narrow belt from Leather-cracker Cove to
Path Valley, or spreads about in all directions
under the Broad Top, Huntingdon and McCon
nelsburg country, ramifying and reuniting
like the water lagoons in a swampy district,
we shall never learn, for the ground for the
central portions of ore area lie far below the
reach of boring tools. But outcrops .of the
ore around the sides of Morrison's Cove, and
the outcrop of ore for twenty miles in Path
Valley, show that the belt of deposit is a
broad one; while the presence of great depos
its of ore, in the same geological position, as
far away as the country between the Schuyl
kill and Lehigh rive,:s, pro el the immense
outspread of the general deposit.
It may help our readers who love the iron
science to get rid of the old "pocket" prejudice
respecting brown hematite ore, it we add one
more Hein to our description of the Leal her.
cracker bed. On the opposite side of the Cove.
the limestones and slates turn
aowu nearly certicattridllie opposite direc
tions, i. e., West. Here shafts have been sunk
to the depth of a hundred feet on the 2G feet
ore bed, and it is found quite regular. Several
miles further south the dip turns and the bed
comes up again, all right. Search is now be
ing made for the great lower member of the
bed on that side, 4326.
THE BEDFORD COUNTY ALMS-110U6E. 2
The Bedford Inquirer, of last week, announced
that.a bill will be offered in the Legislature,
which if passed, will compel the Commission
ers, with the consent of the Court, to build an
Alms-House upon the present ala,s-liouse pro
perty. To this tee are decidedly opposed, and we
have many reasons why this horse should not
be built on the present premises, but a few will
suffice for the present.
And by way of preface let us say that the
present property is one of the most miserably
adapted properties in the county. There could
scarcely be a worse selection, and this is the
judgment of nine-tenths of the people of Bed
ford county outside of Bedford borough. It
has hardly substantial earth enough upon
which to erect a decent, private residence and
surroundings without going to twice the usual
expense. There is absolutely, no room for a
suitable building; no grounds for the exercise
of those of the inmates who may desire to take
the same, without getting into the highway,
within view of the gaping world—and unfortu
nate people do not care about all the world star
ing at them ; no firming land, save a few worth
less patches ; no meadow, but what is liable to
inundation and constantly openly; no crazing
or fmber land save the mountain side where
only one pauper out of ten can scramble up;
no fruit of any consequence, in short nothing
but a garden—this is the only valuable feature
upon the entire premises. The mill is a nui
sance—until lately a kind of harbor where to
stow away disaffected political rats—in twenty
years it has not paid $2O, and with all this
array of inappropriateness there are it number
of men in Bedford. borough, who even pride
themselves upon their shrewdness and tact,
good judgment and - sound sense, who insist
upon building an Alms-House just where we
have located it a. if there was no other place
in the county.
Ten minutes reflection on the part of any one
acquainted with the location, ought to satisfy
him that the present property is not the place
for it, and further, that Poor !louses are not
the kind of improvements with which people
want to build up towns.
On the other hand, we say, let the present
property be cut up into lots and sold for out
lots, so that the water-power can be turned to
account, and manufactories will he started up
and private enterprise will work it into a shape
which will be worth a doze; of Alms Houses to
the people of the place. The borough should
thrust the Alms House away as far from it - as
possible—one-half of the country people now
believe that two-thirds of the town people live
off of this charitable institution. Any othea
town would have spirit enough to resent such
an imputation by thrusting it away as far as
it ',could lie put, but, it seems, Bedford is not
very sensitive on this score. We believe it to
be an injury and a reproach to Bedford, and
the sooner it is removed the better. But, prac
tically, is such a location the position for a
County Alms-House? Why in the wide world
must it be located in the marshes at the junc
ton of Shover's Run with the ricer, in the
most unhealthy and miasmatic spot within five
miles of Bedford? Won't the Bedford people
cease arraying themselves against all the bal
ance of the county, and allow- this charitable
institution to be located where it will be an
asylum for the aged and infirm and not a pest
There are any number of locations within
two, three and four miles of Bedford that would
answer every purpose. If people will not sell
let an act be passed by the Legislature, similar
to the school act for Chester county, (tad a lo
cation will FOOD be found.
THE 11 7 . Vii. A.. OF THE Ci)AL Fat
EXPLAINED.-.BROAD TOP CITY, PENN-1., MARCH
B T O , 18 ' 1- 4'd/tor of journal—Dear Sir: Every
• newspaper tint I pick up has something to
say about tit N. & L. B. A., or it is better
known as tie Working Men's Benevolent As
sociation, or‘'..". B. A. Nearly every farmer
that I meet, is well as many business men
make inquirl iu regard to what this W. B. A.,
is, or what ts objects are.
•• I will try p explain, through the columns
of the JotmAL, as nearly as I caa, its objects
and its worling. It was originally organized
in the Anthm , ,;te region, I think,- in 1868, of
Luzerue, and at this time it extends to nearly
all the coal regions in this State and numbers
probably 40,000 members. It was originally
organizedfor a beneficial purpose; that is,
its member, paid in monthly dues, and those
dues were detributed among those members
who were utfortunate enough to get hurt in
any way in orabout the mines, but lately it is
used for a diffe:ent purpose; especially in the
Anthracite rim:. The leaders being on a'
strike or suspension for differnt reasons or
causes ; soradimers liar an advance, again, to
retain their old wages, sometime for one thing
then again an another, and the funds of the
W. B. A. are ised to assist the members dur
ing such times When one section or region
is on a strike and others at work, those who
are at work atvaya assist those that are on
In this region the W. B. A. are not so well
organized as in tome other regions. The Rev.
Greene, a clergyman in the M. E. Church, is
President at this time and Mr. Edward Jones,
Secretary. The Association has different corn
mittees to perform certain duties; for instance
at a colliery where all the miners are mem
bers, if a stranger comes along for work and
the "Boss" smploys hint, he is subjected to an
examination, by the praper committee, and if
they find !leis not a member, and if be re
fuse to became one, the committee say
to the "Bess," "if you permit that man
to work fir you, you can do so, but
we will quit. We will not work with
him," and the result, in nine cases out of ten,
is, that the Aranger is discharged and preven
ted from canting a livelihood in Free America.
These committees frequently fix prices for
different places and no one is permitted to
go to those places and work for less prices than
the committee has established, no matter how
willing persons may be found to work for less.
Their decision is law, and in this region, it
seems, to be gospel also, as the President is a
It will be but a short time until all the peo
ple in this county will understand what the
W. B. A. is which will be as soon as it is
properly organized. I see that the Lower
House of Congress has repealed, by a large
majority, the duty on foreign coal. IT the
Senate rironld concur in Ibis repeal it will be
death to bituminous coal in this State as well
as in Maryland. The action of Congress was
brought about by the long continued suspen
sion by the W. B. A. in the Anthracite region.
In this case the innocent must suffer for the
guilty. The duty on foreign coal does not in
jure the Anthracite. trade any, for there is no
anthracite mined in any foreign country, ex
cept a very small quantity an of inferior qual
ity in Wales, all of which is consumed tiler.
I almost forgot to say that the W. B. A. is a
chartered organization, chartered by the State
Legislature. So there is no use in the people
saying that it is an illegal organization for it
is not, and the only way it can be made illegal
is for the Legislature to revoke its charter.
Our friend Harry Cook is now proprietor of
the Exchange Hotel, at this place, and I must
say he is keeping a first-class hotel and doing
very nice businc, for a small village like
There is a protracted meeting now in prog
ress in the Baptist Church, conducted by Rev.
Evans, of Shirleysburg.
At some future time, I may say something
more in regard things in this neighborhood.
