Appears tbat'thera wua soras revival in
railway construction during the year
covered by the report. The state of
wnonington leads in construction witu
8C6.33 miles: Mnntiiua shows an in

U65 01 miles. The other stated which
enow an increase in miloiie in excess
of 100 miles lire California, Florida. Ia
Uan, Michigan, Missouri, New York,
Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texts, Wisconsin
and Wyoming. The states or Kansas,
Oregon, the Territory of New Mexico
hnd the District of Columbia, show n
alight decrease in mileage, due to re
ueaiurement of inuiu lines or aban
donment of smali, unimportant lines.
The number of roads abandoned during
tbe year was 10. Tho total length of
line, including all tracks, was -137.27,

ations In existence June 3 J. 1S93, was
1,809, being an increase of 6S during
the year covered by the report. Of
this number 753 vern independent
operating ro.tJs and 039 maintained
operatiuK accouuts. Tlie uumber of
subsidiary roads which maintained fin
ancial accouuts only was 778, of which
SCO wero leased for a fixid money rent
Hi, and 103 for a contingent money
rental, tue remainder being operated
under some form of trafflu agreement
not easily suVjected to classification.
The tendency tjwari some form of
consolidation during the yeur lins been
quit marked; 28 roads, representing
740 87 miles, have been merged: 20
roids, representing 1,733.79 miles,
have been reorganize!; and 10
roads represeatitig 1,409.10 miles,
have been consolidated. These
items , -e higher than the corre
sponding items of the previous year.
A classification of railways according
to length of line operatel show that
there are 42 companies in the United
i?tntes h living u mileage in excess of
1,000 miles, 20 comyatiies operating u
iniltuye betweou 000 and 1.000 miles,
23 coiunnuies operating a mileage be
tween 400 and 0U0 miles, 41 companies
operating a mil-aije between 250 and
400 miles, aud 002 companies opsrating
u mileage of 200 miles or less. The
total length of line controlled by the
42 ccmpauies operating an excess of
1.000 miles was OS. 383 54, being equal
55.78 per cent, of tue loiul miieuge of
the couutry. Trie second class of roads
controlled 11 20 p?r cent, of total mile
age, from which it iip.iears that Ci com
panies controlled 70 i)8 per cent, of the
total railway mileue.
Tbe total number of locomotives on
June 33, 1893, w 34.783, beimf an in
treise of 1.052 during the year. Of
these, 8,957 wire passenger locomo
motives, 18 599 freight locomotives,
and 4,802 switching locomotives, the
remainder being unclassified. . The
total number of cars owned tv the
carriers making report was 1,119.078,
to which should be added 154 tiOS l-iised
cars, rnakiux a total of 1.273,040 cars
operated direotly by tin carriers. Tuis
shows an iucreaS) in tbe number of
cars directly controlled of 58,854 dur
ing the ypiir. Of the tolul number of
cars, 81,384 worn in the passenger ser
vice, and 1,017,577 in the freight ser
vice. The number of passengers crrin.l
per passenger locomotive was 06,208
and the number of passenger mile per
passenger locomotive was 1.588,001
These figures show an increane in the
ffflciency of passenger locomotives.
The number of tons of freight carried
per freight locomotive was 40,002 and
the number of ton miles accomplished
Tier freight locomotive was 5,031,880
Thess figures show no change in tbe
tfSciency of freight locomotives as
cowpired with previous years. The
firnoer of p:tssengr or per 1,000.000
passengers carried was 53 and the num
ber of freight cars per 1.000,000 tons of
freight carried was 1,013 The increase
in equipment fitted with train brakes,
or automatic couplers, as compared
with the increase in equipment itself,
is not as marked as In the previous
year. Thus, from a total increase in
qninment rtnring tbe year ended June
80,1893, of 60,506. tbe increase in equip
ment fitted with train brake was 42. 158, "
nnd the increasi in equipment fitted

The total number of employes in the
iervic of railways on June 83. 1893.
wss 073,002. being an increase of 52. 187.
Of this total of employes, 35,334 are
assigned to tb wnrk of general ad
ministration ; 250.513 to maintenance
of way and structures, 175.464 to
maintenance of equipment, aud 897,
915 to conducting transportation, tbe
remainder, 8,627. being unclassified by
the carriers making report. If tbe
employes be assigned to mileage, it
appears that 515 men fonnd employ
ment in the railway industry in the
United States per 100 miles of line,
twenty-one beioir assigned to fcneral
administration, 151 to maintenance of
way nnd structures, 103 to maintenance
of equipment, and 231 to conducting
The aggregate of property properly
classified as railway capital was on
Jnne 80. 1803, $10,500,235,410. which
shows railway capital equal to $03 421
per mile of line. The amount of slock
ontstandina was 14,008,935,418, of which
$3,982,009,002 w.m common stock, the

Increasing railway business is noted
throughout the Lehigh and Wyoming
valleys. The Easton Express doclares
editorially that there has been an im
monse gain in truffle batweou Easton
and VVilkes-Uarre. Tuo receipts in
tbe E tston office are said to be twice as
large as a year ago. Tuo Central's pat
ronage to Now York bus also greatly
increased, as well as its freight busi
ness. Those iu a position to know say
the compuuy is holding permanently
all this acquired business. The
Central's coil train.1, for this se.i
sou, is extraordinarily large. From
tbe Lehigh Valley come rumors
that henceforth local trade will not be
catered to. Its through piss'nger
traffic bas become so heavr as to require
all iu best attentions. People some
times are unable to get seats In through
truins. Tue Lehigh Valley kus never
baudled so muc:i western trnftis as
now. Four enxin.s have lately been
borrowed from the Heading. The pros
pects are that in a ycur or two the
through freiuht and passenger traffic
on the Lehigh Vulley will lie somethiug
enormous. The Coxes will gradually
increase the nutnbar of their coal

CHE COBWEB PARTY.
A Novel FuBCtioa In WTtloh Young and Old
Mny Participate Wtn Pleasure.
A pleasant fad in entertaining that is
going the ronnds among hospitable cir
cles is tho, eobweb party. It providos
merrymaking for both grownups and
juveniles. The hostess in providing for
her entertainment secures as many yards
of narrow rihbou or colored worsted
yarn as she expects guctita. Tho threads
are not necessarily of tho same length,
but vary according to tho fancy of the
inanipulat6r. Fastened to thy. end of
OCE9T9 AT A COBWEB PARTY.
each ribbon is some trinket, which arAs
as a prize. These sonvonirs may bo as
costly or expensive as one pleases, but
unless tho cobwob party is to bo a very
elaborate affair in overy respect it is in
better taste to let tho prizes consist of a
collection of very simple trifles. Japa
nese dolls, sachets of rico paper, cun
ning bonbonnieros iu fact, any knick
knack may bo eolooted for this purpose
Tho lengths of ribbon or yarn, each
with its prize soenroly fastened to tho
end, aro carried in nud ont of ono an
other, forming one grand tanglo, tho
ends being secreted behind bookcases,
cabinet, sofas, chairs, tables, in cup
boards, beneath drapery, back of cur
tains, portieres and in every conceiv
able nook. Tho fun begiiiB with the
endeavors of tho guests to nntauglo tho
cobwob by searching out a clew which
will lend to the discovery of a hiddon
prize. This requires patienco and porso
veruicp, and those who hasten their
efforts to secure the coveted prize are
generally more hopelessly confused by
tho "web" than their slower working
Finally the bright bits of ribbon are
all traced to their hiding places, and
tho lucky person who has succesi-fulJy
captured the greatest nuinlier of prizes
receives one general souvenir. This may
be, for a lady, a dainty bureau sachet,
with a spider's web embroidered across
one corner. For a gentleman a Bpider
scarf pin is appropriate.
The "booby" priae is awarded to. tho
discoverer of tho fewest number of
prizes. A great big papier macho spider,
such as can be picked np at any Japanese
store, fits in nicely as a souvenir.
