Getting at tbe Real Facts as to What Free
Coal Would Mean,
LIVELY BATTLE AT WASHINGTON
One of the Fiercest Fights in the Ex
perience of Tariff-Tinkering Is Wag"
ing on the Part of Jeoparded South
ern Owners of Bituminous Coal
Mines and Carrier Systems Olher
Interesting News and Gossip of the
Hour Touching Our Factories,
Mines, Railroads and Mills.
With the re-assembling of congress
this week will bd resumed tho tierce,
but not noisy, fiht that is waging be
tween friends of American industry
and those foes of it who arc uppermost
in tbe councils of the present WJN and
means committee. The particular
brunch of this struirple, which has for
iis purpose the retention of a proteclivf
duty on bituminous coal imports, is of
especial interest to Borantooiana and
other residents of the anthracite region
because the freeing of Nova Scotinn
coal would surely cut away from our
anthracite industry u considerable and
a growing market for the smaller siz",
nuch as buckwheat nnd pea, vbic!i are
profitably utiliz-d in many factory fur
naces along the Atlantic seaboard. .Stu
dents of the coal trade concur in the
prediction that a desirable future
awaits the attempt to redeem the little
grades of anthracite, but they also ad
mit that this future would be sorioutiy
impaired by the unrestricted entrain1
of the cheaply-mined surface coal of
Nova Scotia brought in syndicate ves
sels and put down iu New Entilaiid and
other seibo ird cities at a mere fraction
of tbe freight curt unfairly put ou an
thracite by the rail carrying corpora
tions. The Washington Post, discussing this
subject recentlv, said: "The shipment
of coal from Virginia and West Vir
uini'i to New England has grown to
enormous proportions. There is ship
ped annually from Newport News, the
terminus or the Chesapeake and Ohio
railroad, 1,000.000 tonsof coal to points
along the northern and New Eaglan I
coast. A similar amount goes from
Lambert's Point, near Norfolk, the ter
minus of the Norfolk and Western
railroad, The shipment of this ooal
means not only an immtns revenue
for the railroads, but upon it depends
the operation of thd extensive 001
tields in Virginia and West Virginia,
the employment of thousands of min
ers, and the service of a large ll at of
ships, with all their officers und men
it is claimed by those who are inter
ested in this matter that the placing of
coal upon tho free list will close the
mines, stop the running of freight
trains, and seud to the wharvs (tie
snip; that are now engaged in tbe
coastwise coal trade.
Of course the endeavor to secure a
duty on coal will be fought with great
bitterness by the syndicate that has
just secured acres and acres of coal
tields in Nova Scotia coal that lies in
thick veins close to the surface, and so
near to the sea that a few miles of rail
road will be sufficient to place it in the
holds of schooners, a very different
condition of affairs than exists along
the line of the two great trunk lines al
ready mentioned, which have to hum
several hundred miles to the nearest
seaport. The tight of tbe syndicate to
save its investment, and the struggle
of tbe coal roads to save their business
will be one of the most noticeable fea
tures of tbe tariff tight, and will be
none the less interesting because of the
fact that it will uot bj fought upon 1 1 1 -
Statistics of the new cars aud loco
motives built in the United States dur
ing the year 1893 show that in engines
and passenger curs the record, as com
pared with previous years, is not so
bad as was to have been expected, but
the number of new freight cars has
fallen eff fnin 9S.150 in 1893 to 50.0S3
in 1893. The statistics are gathered
from the principal manufacturers
throughout the country (but do not in
clude railroad companies' shops), and
they are Bumraarized as follows: Loco
motives built this year, 1953; last year,
2 036. Passenger cars this year, 1,971);
last year, 3.195. The 50,000 new freight
Can make an addition of only about
i per cent, to the total stock of freight
cars in the country, though iu capacity
the addition is much larger, the new
curs biting built to carry twenty to
thirty tons, while tLe averag capacity
of all cars in sarvico is much less. The
business is now very dull, dspcially in
passenger cars, an unusul number of
which were built early tn the year to
accommodate World's fair traffic. Of
the iifty car shops in the county ten,
including one or two large ones, are
now wholly idle.
The Pitteton Gazette argues edito
rially for better organization among
anthracite mine official) and saya: "It
is strange enough to occasion surprise
among visitors to this section that in
the vast anthracite territory of Penn
sylvania, with its thousands of men iu
charge of important work that la to n
considerable extent the same, there la
not in existence u aingle organization
whose object is to disseminate facts
and new ideas connected with the bus
iness. Important questions of engi
neering and mining are continually
coming up in these days of advance
ment that wonld furnish profitable
subjects for discusiion at a mining in
stitute. Tbe organization might b'
local or general, and ita tnembershl:.
might include even those workmen
who are sufficiently interested to de
sire knowledge other than that to be
secured by actual experience. Tbe
matter la one that might well engage
tbe attention of foremen, engineers
nnd other mine workers Hereabout."
The) Individual Operators' association
baa for its purpose au interchange of
viewe aud newa of this character, and
would dobtleas welooin the co-operation
of mine officials whe. this would
not interfere with the normal worklnga
of the collieries.
