Interesting Review o! Last Year's Trade la
Bituminous and Anthracite,
YEAR OF NOTABLE FLUCTUATIONS
IU Etui Saw Both Branches ot the
Coal Trade Depressed, but the
Advantage Was Resting with An
thraciteSome Reflections Apropos
of the Recent Statistics of Produc
tionOther News arid Gossip of
the Flying Hours.
Since it is in a mensute competitive
against anthracite, the tr.fl. in oituini
nous coal, mi reviewed for 18U:t, presents
some minis of reminiscent ial in! crest
In thin connection. Wo condense what
follows from the l-Jagi inuring and Mia
lag Journal; "Bituminous coal of all
descriptions during the first five
months of 1893 was in a strong, healtbv
position, and in January, February and
March demand was active, operator
and Urge shippers being at times un
able to till orders promptly. Coal
carrying roads were ... I to their full
capacity. Iu February the severe
weather rendered it diflloult for ship
pers to supply fuel to regular cus
tomer.i, and till now business was ac
cepted only contingent on ability to
AU. Toward the end of March the
supply of bituminous coal whs over
abundant. The bif' strike iu the Hock
ing Valley in Ohio In May causud little
embarrassment iu the market, as sup
plies were ample, shippers taking liberal
quantities before the miners Want out.
The opening of many new mines in
the bituminous coalfields of In liana
began to affect the tonuige of the
block coal man and prices weakened.
The closing of the steel mills at Juliet
threw a large quantity of the ehoapar
grades of coal on this market, riming
a drop in prices. Other plants and fac
tories shut d urn, and COaJ ws offered
at cost of mining plus the freight in
Order to keep the minea going at least a
part of the time. Operator exorcised
the usual caution in credits, so that
while .It in ml had falleu off and prices
i were demoralized there were few fail
I urea to quote. The withdrawal of
1 mauy passenger trams at the close of
the Coluuibiau exposition was also a
factor iu decreasing the tonnage, which
was not offset by any increase in freight
traffic after the close of navigation.
The year closed with a congested mar
ket for all kinds of bitumiuous coal,
nnd prices are completely demoralized.
The same authority presents an in
teresting review ot the trade in anthra
cite. In this trade the year opened
well, With a good volume of small
orders Rumors of a break in the com
bination bad a weakening effect in
, February. The heavy surplus of that
I month caused much incouveuience
through inability to get supplies for
warded to tne country. Bituminous
coal was so short that many steam
plants were obliged to use anthracite.
March maintained its eld prestige as a
good coal selling month iu the several
branches, ana stocks steadily decreased

made in October. The strained condi
tion of finances affected sales and to
ward the latter part of June thoy fell
oil' considerably. Another advanco of
'.'5c. July 1 only served to make mat
tors worse. For a short time the strin
gent orders from proJncerseast had its
effect, but priees soon drifted back to
the old figures. Tue separation of the
Lehigh and Heading intorests in Au
tfmt caused a further weakening in
prices, which, coupled with the in
creasing depression, added grcatlv to
the dullness in tho market. Careful
estimates disclosed the fact that up to
the end of August tho tonnage sold
was fully 59 per cent, less than for the
corresponding month in 18112. Through
out September and October country
dealers continued their conservative
buying. At iht close of navigation
the docks and yards became glutted
with coal, and many loaded vessels
were tied up at the various docks.
The aunual election of officers of the
Pittsburg, Marion and Chicago Kail
way company was held at Beaver Mon
day. An important matter to the com
pany was th transferring of the option
on leases on '.',000 acres of cannel nnd
bituminous coal land near Negley, O,
on the line of this railroad, known as
the liillingsly, llykaand Rogers tracts,
to a New Yum iTDdioatt of capitalists
by I. F. Mansfield and C. II. Smith.
The formor has been for years inter
ested In the cannel coal mines, at Can
nolton. The company purchasing the
options on the leases, will begin exten
sive operations at once.
The snles agents on Monday, Nov.'7,
voted to restrict the December output
to 2,500,000 tons, and took stens to en
force the reduction. The official fig
ures for the month will not be out for
two weeks, but in the four weeks
ended Dec. 110 production was :,224,OOL
tons, or ovor 700,000 tons more than the
amount agreed upon. For the year,
with the reduced consumption, the out
put will probably prove to be nesrly
1,200,000 tons grenter than in i-.o
This moves the Philadelphia Stuck
holder to usk: How can tho coal trade
continue to show snuh large earnings
for three companies when nil agree
ments are violated nnd the laws of
trade ignored bv this over production?
'I in applanation is that the stock car
ried ovor unsold must be simply enor
mous, but the railroads have carried
the ooal to storage points nnd are cred
ited with earning money just as though
the coal was sold. In no other busi
ness does this seeming disregard of the
laws of trade seem to pay.
James B. Oliver, the Pittsburg iron
king, says there is not a mill in the
country operating iu full. "Every
thing," he says, "seems to depend on
the Wilson bill. It it is not nasied
tmdo will no doubt be brisk, ns stocks
never have bean as light as at present
in the history of the country, but buy -ra
are holding, awaiting the results
of the tariff legislation."
The Huntingdon and Broad Tod
Railroad company started otf the new
year under favorable circumstances so
far as its coal touuugu is concerned,
the week ended Jan. 0 showing an in
crease over the corresponding period
in l-'i.; of G.mitf tons. It is to be noted,
however, that this increase came
wholly from the Cumberland districts,
the tonnage originating on the line
having docreased about 50 per ceut. It
is believed, on tho other baud, that
there will be a cbauge iu these losses
shortly, and that the tonnage of Broad
Top coal will materially iuorease.

though the movements wore somewhat

The fact that no iiiorum could be obtained
