TIIE SCKANTON TKIBTOE-THURSDAT MORNING, JUNE 7, 1894. L OF Id this age of multiplying trolleys it may not be wituont interest to Soran toniaus to note tbo development in homo of the larger cities of the belief that undentrouud iron pipes are in juriously allected by thorn. The first discovery of any importance of this tendency of lost electricity to destroy gas and water mains whs made in Jr ey City a few weeks ago, according to 'Holland," and it was found that pipes whioh were presumed to be practically impervious to chemical influence were eaten through, and in many places cou jiletidy dfstroyod, by tho iuflaence of i-onio corroding chemical. Experiments have been made recently with other metals brought in contact with thes i-ul -surfacj currents, and it has bten ilemoustrated that they are Immedi ately Hinl severely affected by them. In r-oms of the cities of the west, especi ally Omaha, these injurious lnntumoai liavo ueeii found to be very costly. Io Omaha, it is sa'.d, that the damage done to some of the mains already rep resents a loss of some twenty thous and dollars. The scientists are now hard at work trying to devise some means for overcom ing this str.ince and wholly unex pected development following tho DS6 of the trolloy system. Some of them lwlieto that it cannot be overcome, un ".ess the metallic circuit is m;ide com plete, as it is in tho caw of lor.? dist ance tolephuues. Of course, this would considerably iritroiise the expense of the plant, and yet it may be that municipalities will fnsl compellol to insist upon it us a condition of the con tinuance of characters. They certainly will, unless some other means can bo discovered for overeoming the trouble. This danger is now so thoroughly recognized and well understood that the scientists have givtn a name to it, calling it electrolyse. Activitv in tho anthracite trade is confined just at prvseut very largely to ihe filling of orders received prior to "he issuing of the June circular. The new prices have not been .tested, for ihe reason that there is little demand The companies all claim that they will not boot new business at less than the circular. The soft coal strike has hud che (ff ct of materially strengthening tho situation. Creditors of the Pennsylvania and "Maryland steol companies have practi oally reached an agreement looking ;oward a speedy reorganization'. Th ;ilan embodies two nuthods of settle ment. One is known as tho auiicablo jlan and tha other the judicial reor ganization plan. Tho first plan con templates a settlement between the creuitors uud tho company on a mutu- illy accepted basis. Should this fail the second plan would throw the prop erties into court an 1 a settlement made jy n judicial sale under foreclosure of existing mortgage and liens. Tho ami cable plan provides that the companies ;ihnll pay to the creditors 40 per cent. of ho indebtedness in cash, C'J per OtQtin liondi on tho joint properties of the Maryland and Pennsylvania companios .ind 15 per cent, in the stock or scrip of "he Pennsylvania company. It Is also provided that the stockholders of the .Pennsylvania company, whose capital is $4,700,000, shall surrender one-half of their common stock holding. Of it. e amount surrendered 1, 500.000 is o be returned to the subscribers of n -ike amount of preferred stock, to be noll nt par. If this amioablo plun can .iot be carried out on the basis as out lined, both properties are to be sold. TBey would then bs purchased Dy the creditors subject to existing indebt edness as regards bonds and common ptock. In the event of purchase under he judicial reorganizttion plan the creditors agree to increase the capital 01,500,000 by th issuance of preferred i-tock. This additional capital is to bo used in operating the works of the companies. It is generally agreed Dy the creditors that the companies will accept tho amicablo adjustment plan whenever it Is taken up for considera tion by the stockholders. Lunch house 'keepers along the line of tb Lehigh Valley railroad are dis satisfied with the new excursion lunch car which has been adopted by Passen ger Agent Lee as a feature of the road's summer passenger Irnflic. They claims it evinces contempt for their tmsiuess. Nevertheless, the idea meets with much approval among travelers. The appointment of J. Lowrie Bell ns general traffic manager of the Jer ney Central is regarded in railway cir cles as presagine a spirited campaign oetween that Hue and the competing systems that crowd it for tonnage. Of recent months, the monthly statements of earnings by the Central have indi cated ths existence of more determined competition in the traffic department than had been encountered in previous years. The Central's business has in creased, but tho margin of profit, or the "net," as it is called, has shown that the other roads were not resting on their oars. Mr. Bell's thorough mastery of this department and his widespread popularity pointed to him us the exact man for the position; and ne was therefore ssenred. It is to be expected that he will "make things hum," In denying the reported sale of the Carbondale Traction company to the Carbondale and Forest City 'fraction company, the Lender takes occasion to remark that Judge Wilbur P. Sadler, of Carlisle, the largest Stock holder in the Carbondale Traction company, is much averse to parting with his hold ings, even undor tempting oircuin atances. The road, it adds, is paying handsomely. In spite of the tie-up dur ing the first winter caused bv the heavy snow storms the road carried 700.000 pssssngers during the first year sur prise not only to the general public but to the men who invested their money in the enterprise, who would have been satisfied ff the first year's in come had been sufficient to cover tho ixpenses. With so fine a showing it is reasonable to expect that in the course of a few years the line of the Carbon dale Traction compauy will be one of the -most valuable franchises in the state. The Forest City people.it Is Mid, are yet talking over the "project of a belt line, to connect with Crystal lake, Dnndnff and other points. The statement is made that it costs only about $25 to make tho change in an engine so as to fit it f6r burning oil. This ohsnuo consists simply in putting in an oil tank in the space now used for coal. The change can be made in less than a day. Bituminous coal is deoidediy the safest and cheapest fuel for railroad engines in communities where anthracite is not available, as in the west. But the strikers have f oread the price of bituminous up about 100 percent If oil is substituted, a tank sufficient to carry about seventy gal lon of oil will be filled on each engine. HERA NEWS HDUSTRIES This amount of oil will run an engiuo atout 150 miles. Minor Industrial Notes: Work In tho minea at Oueida is booming at present, with fair prospect of continu ance. The Reading company sent about 172 coal trains ot forty-eight car t each to market laBt week. The output for this week, it is predicted, will ha much larger. The Reading's coal tonnage for the week ended Juno ii decreased (I.US-t tODS, making the decrease for the part ot tho year ex pired to that date 1,007,187. 10 tons. Tho Pennsylvania management officially announces that on account ot the depres sion iu business it bus abandoned it pro posed extension through Johnstown, Pa. Anthracite coal is still being shippod wct via tho Iialtiuiore aud Ohio. Much ot this i.s consigned to East St. Louis, and is in all sizes. Heavy shipments ere also being made to eaitlorn cities. Ihe Crors Creek Coal company have placed nn order for the construction of two bundled mine cars with the Dlooms burg Car company. These cars will bo use I in the mines nt Oneida. Three shifts are employed (-inking elope Into the Did Silver Urouk works, and judging bv the rapid progroi-s made it will not belong until this aporturo will servo ns a passage way lor hundreds of loaded care daily. Tho storage capacity nt Roan Junctiou will he increased to double what it Is now. This is done fo as to enable tho Cross Creek Coal company to store its ronl dur ing tin-dull season. Jt will, wbfjn com pleted, liuvo a storage capacity of 150,000 tons.

Editor or Tur VttBumi Dear, tin Wo thought we had gotten through with explanations of our position, SO far as WO are concerned in tho "Sabbath crusade, but the communication by the Kev. James MrLood in yesterday s issue or Tub Timn'.fK cii'.ls forth further remarks from ns on tho subject. The reverend gentleman says: "ilcUurruh & Thomas have a line let or bru.she.innd combs, per fumeryund cigars, ho ips and candies, and a host of other commodities in edditiou to soda water, which would require uviolont stretch of the Imagination to call drags." Wo agree with tho reverend gentleman that it would, indeed, require a violent stretch of the imagination to class the tilings enumerated as drugs, but as "a collar is not always evid-nco of a shirt" it need not tollow because we carry cigars, soaps, perfumery, brushes, etc., in stock thai we tell these articles on Miuuay. Prom tho beginning of this crus ndo we have studiously endeavored to avoid th criticism inferred by Rev. Dr. JleliCcds communication by refusing to sell cigars, perfumes, brushes soaps aud other ariicles that ap parently coino under tho head of non necessities. We conscientiously contend that soda water has become n necessity, just as much so as tea, coffee or mill;, and it simply remains lor iuh court loucciuo whether we ore justihed in so main taining. We assure tho public again it wo aro violating a statute or thisom monwoalth, wo aro doing so unconsciously and unintentionally, and no one will bo more ready to comply with its reipure meats. We do not infer, should tho court sustain us in the stand we have taken iu relation to the snlo of soda water, that it carries with It the right to soli on Sunday things that may construed as non-necessi ties. Yours respect lolly, McQaurah & Thomas. Dit m'lkod'h reply. liy the courtesy of Messrs. McUarrah t J. homes, the above letter was sent to me, mat my reply muzm accompany it. If their former letter, which I ventured to criticise, bud boon as specilio as this one, there would have been no occasion for any misunderstanding. The point I made is now conceded, name ly: A drug store.il open on Sunday, should pe used, exclusively, for tho sine of drugs. Grocers lteop a good many ariicles which, to say the least, are ns much necessities as soda-water. Theroforo grocers should open their stores tor tho salo of such ne cessities. Lngor beer is, Jin the judgment ot n good many of our fellow-citizens a far greater necessity than soda water and it is certainly ns much a drug. Therefore, saloons ought to ho open on Sunday for tho sale of luger beer. Tho truth Is that thus- who run nr;da fountains on Sunday whether they bo grocers or confectioners or Cigar dealers (1 have soon a soda foiiutniu in a rigor store) run thtm for the profit that is io thrt truffle. If tho businons wore unprofit able they wonld bo shut ns "close as a clam." Young men and young women WKAIIINES3 lc in women, that nervous.

Jambs MuLbou. ONE IDEA Or" JUSTICE. Editor of The Tririnb: Dbar Sin Inasmuch as your columns have been open to the discussion ot tho Sunday question, I take tho liberty of tree-" passing upon your Bpaco with tho hopo that my views on the subject may direct thought in an hitherto unoxpected chan nel. It is unnecessary to recite tho statute under discussion. Suftice it to say that there is n law on our statute books which makes it n misdemeanor to transact any worldly business on Sunday, and thnt to day in the city of Scrauton u large number of men who are tho lending dignitaries of tho churches nro zoslously engaged i:i the prosecution of all men violating this law. The Htatute is on tho books nnd as long ns it is there those officers empowered by tho people to administer the laws have tho right to nrosecuto offending purties. When a law becomes obnoxious to a ponplo either it is repealed or it fulls into InoOUdUS de suetude, Whether or not this law has 08 como Intolerable to the ample at large is not at present tho subject of dircus-iou. In fact it requires but hltlo nrgument to dispose of that proposition, and tho mo ment a definition of justice iB reached tho solution bus been found. The first question involved in the discus sion of this matter is: Are the men who are devout believers in the scripures commit ting an error in Interesting themselves in the prosecution of those found violating this ISwf To my mind the nnswer should beiutbe affirmative, and so groat is the error aud it is fraught with conaequ-mces so serions that it is impossible to under estimate then. Intolerance aud fanatic ism are tho si t roads to ruin that any religion can adopt. This fact is so potent that it is a shear waste of time to multiply instances illustrating it. Lot ns not attempt to lay the Battering unction to our souls that wo live in au ago of tolerance. There is only a difference iu degree and not in kind between tbo spirit of Torquemsdo and that of a man of to day who insists that all men should think as ho does. Religion is always inclined at the outset to use mural suasion to bring a man to its views, but when that fails, force is Invariably used. How is it poss ible to persuade a man to ndopt the religi ous views of another by inculcating iu him as a first lesson that it is absolutely essential to Die force to compel a man to believe with him. Let it bo understood that my remarks aro wholly impersonal and are made without rancour. To mo it is a constant sourcn of amazement to seo how men nro constantly disregarding tho ultimate results and look only to tho prox imate benefit of and act. "In order thut wo may more fully com prebend the situation as it is, let us for the sake of illustration shift tho aceno of action from ScrantOU to some romote In land in the Pacific. Let us imagine that there is a little settlement there number ing forty souls thirty-nine strict believ ers in the Scriptures, and one uitbrliover. The unbeliever is tho proprietor of a small -hep, uud on the first Sunday spent by th little settlement lu its now home, tho un believer's place is open lor business. The tblrty-nine Delleter aro indignant, uud waiting upon their deluded brother insist that ho abstain from secular wont on that day. If the unbeliever iu reply to tbnt iuforms the committee that lie emigrated to that islaud laboring undor the impres sion that his belief in a Qod would not be questioned, he will receive au answer which tho fabled acumen of n Philadelphia lawyer would bo unable to interpret. Tho Una! result would bs that tho thirty-nine would insist that the one should not shock them with his open di leg ird ot the Ssbbntb, and tbo one being in the minority, would obey. Celery: Is the method ud to bring tho stray and" erring lamb to the flock a good one I In principlo, that is tho fitu afion today in Scrauton and when the action of nino oud thirty is denomi nated ns harsh aud intolerant, the re sult is virtuous indignation. Let us re tort to our island for a moment. A change has tnken place. Attracted by reports of religions tolerance three hundred seventh day adventlsta have arrived, Saturday Comes and tho f rty original settlers nriso With the SUn nnd proceed with their toil. The new arrivals gate at each other with amazomeut. Unheard of sacrallge. Toil ing on the Sabbnth. The matter must be attended to. Tho thro e huudred men form a commitfoo and wait upou the forty unbelieving settlers. They must not dese crate the Sabbath, and tho reason urg.nl is a most substantial one. It offends tho eye of tho three huudred seventh day adven lists. Can yon hear the thirty-nine men who gloried iu compelling the one unbe liever to outwnrdy couform to thoir views emit a shout, intolerance ! Fuuatacism 1 Would you deny us the right to worship Qod ou tho day wo see lit. It was intolerance of this kind that lost to Israel the spiritual rulership of the world. It was intolerance of this Kind that founded ii Spanish inquisition, and it is intolerance of toil kiud that causes men, aye, oven clergymen, to band themselves together masking their true intontion un der tho hypocritical cloak of patriotism, calling themselves tho American Protec tive association. The rules of absolute ethics aro such that is impossible for man in his pro.'out imperii ct nature to attain fiiicliamoial attitude. Even justice is hardly within tho grasp of human com prehension, tut some idea of justice is lu heront in most men, a priori, as it wore. The founders of this government made a noble effort to provide for justice. No man has a right to interfere with tho ac tions of nnotuer when the actious of the other aro not in any manner limiting tho rights of the iuterferer. The right to wor ship l iod does not carry with it tho right to compel others to do the same or to com pel others to refrain from doing anything but watch the worshipper in tho exercise of his right. Tiuo religion does not con template tho conversion of men by force. How much more consistent would it be with the teachings of the founder of Cbistlanity tor men Instead of banding themselves tot-ether for tho ouroo if v compelling men to do as they wish, to nt- u ra, l.tnulinn .1... ............ 1... morul suasion, and if, nfter strenuous and repeated efforts, that cannot bo accom plished to leave them "more in sorrow than iu anger" and to iutorcede with Uod iu behalf of thoirerrina brothers. Religion suggests this. Justice demands that no man bo interfered with who is not inter fering with tho rights of another. Tuese, I believe, nro wholesome truths. They may hurt tho feelings of some, but justice is in oxorable, and lor her sake 1 ask every man to lend his aid to repeal a law which is a travesty on her, Nathan Vidavkr.
