Retui-n from the Recent Meeting
Pleased with the Feeling Prevailing
Among Members ot the New Asso
ciationOther Recent News and
Gossip ot an Industrial Character.
Although the duty of taking the in
itiative In SOU14 specific Action calcu
lated to in net the prevalent crisis in the
anthracite trade wan at the recent ses
sion of tli Anthraoito Cosl Operators'
association referred to the executive
committee, Scrautohians who ware in
attendance bring back cheerful reports
coucoruing the lmruiony that prevailed,
in oontrMt with the former disjointed
and irregular attitude preserved by the
individual oporators toward vital in
terests of tha trade in anthracite, this
new confession of mutuality of inter
rnta, and thin novel disposition
to work together as n unit
instead as jangling and jarring fac
tors have greatly encouraged those
who were largely instrumental in
bringing the operators together. The
coal trade is like nuy other kind of
business, It responds with immediate
emphasis to good or bad management.
But unlike most other kinds of busi
ness, the raw material in which it denls
is not BO inexhaustible that tho present
generation of producers or consumers
can afford to sit idle under the stress of
incoherent and conflicting control, in
which investments ure jeopsrded, pro
duction made capricious and prices re
duced to a plane of unintelligible and
Coal experts are investigating the
alleged coal beds of Sanora in the in
terest of a Chicago syndicate. If their
report is favorable, the syndicate has
agreed to purchase the coal concession,
built a railroad from Ouaymas to tho
coal fields, build coal docks at
or near Quaytnas, equip the mines
with machinery capable of mining
o,UOO tone, and put on a line of
whalebacks between Ouaymas, S,in
Diego, San Pedro and San Francisco,
tor the purpose of hauling coal to these
ports. Everything looks favorable for
the opening up and operatitig of those
immense coal deposits and the fur
nishing to the Pacific coast of that
long felt want cheap coal. Colonel
Blanco.of the boundary survey for the
Mexican government, while at Yuma
said: "There is no question but that
the Colorado river can be so imnroved
that cowl barges can come to Yumn,
loaded with coal from the Ssn Marcial
eoal fields, and thnt the coal can ho
laid down here for $-1: at most for
per ton. It will not be difficult or ex
pensive to keep the Colorado river open
for such vessels as are required for that
Oenernl Manager Voorbees, of the
Lehigh Valley, says: "A summarv
taken Dec. 23 showed that there had
been 3,200 men altogether who had left
tho servica of the company during the
strike, and of thete 1094 had been re
employed in accordance with the terms
or the agreement tip to that time. As
thorn has been some question in regard
to the number of locomotive engineers
who left the servico of the company, it
may be of int-rest to state that the to
tal number who struck was r27, and up
to Christmas day 2;SG of these meu had
secured employment With the company,
leaving 391, according to the company 'a
pay rolls, who had not got back. In
re-employing those men no questioua
were asked ns to their affiliations with
any bodies of organizod labor, nor has
any distinction been made on that ac
count." The Ilondrick Manufacturing com

FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL
Stocks and Bonds
New YonK. Jan. 18. There was little
activity in the stock market today.The un
dertone was strong, tho effort to create
uneasiness regarding the bankl regarding
a revival of gold shipments, being offset
by the more favorable trade reports and
the decision of the ways und means com mittee
nut to tack tbe lucerne tax
mutter ou the tariff bill. The
further accumulation of money at
this center was another point iu
faVOI of the bulls, the banks having gained
88, 787,025 iu surplus reserve. The general
market first advuueed to per cent.,
then lost most of this gain, but in the
liuuueial transactions was lirm again un
der the leadership of Sugar, nnd loft, off at
or near the best figures of tho day. Tho
prominent stocks recorded net gains of ,
to 4 per cent, for the day. Total trans
