An apparently well-authenticnted ex
port says the condemnation procoeaii
instituted by tbe Cumberland Valley rail
roail company to obtam possession ot a
certain valuable section of tu. South Penn
sylvania railroad route between Harris
burg and Riverton, located opposite Har
risburir. is the first steo toward the con
summation of a scheme to build a great
coal railroad between there aud the west.
The suggested line is not in competition
with the Pennsylvania railroad, but to
form a part of its system. While it is not
doubtod that one of tho purposes of the
judicial proceedings is to socure a cutoff at
tvmte uill, a rew miles woso oi narris
burg, to enable tbe Cumberland Valley
Rulroad company to mil Its freight trains
Into linrrisburg without passing through
tue umou station, there is uotuiug in tue
project to interfere with the extensive
railroad schemes indicated. The building
of such a line would develop a couutry
rich iu natural resources and the Pennsyl
vania Railroad couitinuy. in view of its
greut freight traffic, would find it very ad-
vantn'uoui to uo It. it tue route surveyeu
and partly built by the South Pennsylvania
Railroud conipuuy be followed, the rail
road distance between Harrisburg and
Pittsburg would be lessened nearly fifty
miles. The South Pennsylvania company
was chartered nearly forty years ago. The
building ot tbo proposed line was begun
several times, but it did not assume tangi
ble shape uutil 1881, when tue vanaerbilt
interest secured control of tbe route. Al
most $9,000,000 was expended in grading,
bonug uiountuius and purchasing rights ot
way, but the West Shore deal put an end
to the colossnl enterprise.
A Connellsville dispatch says: Tbe
operators who have been obliged to im
port now men here to tnke the place of
the stubborn strikers in tne cone wonts
aro bogtnuing to cxpeneuce a new set of
troubles. Several declarations nave re
cently been mado at various leading
plants in the region, tne pitn ot most oi
them being that the negroes would have
to work like white men hereafter, and
that divers little privileges that the ne
groes have enjoyed as inducements to get
them located here would be cut off after
July 31. Tho result thus far has been sur
prising in most cases. The negroes nave
changed marvelously since their introduc
tion here. Iu tbo. words of uu operator
who has broncht iu a greut number of
them, they bave little or uo individuality,
and they all go together in any given di
rection. "I have perhaps been as big n
fool as any of the other operntors," said
he, "but I'm already satisfied that the
negro, particularly tbe southern brand,
will never do the work at the miues or
cokeoveus in this region. Why they Bre
tho most trifling, mercurial, childish lot of
fellows iu the shapo of men that I have
ever heard of."
In the first six months of 1894 only 625
miles of new railroad were built in the
United States distributed in twenty-three
states. In twenty-five states and territo
ries no new track was laid. The 5U5 miles
of new track was put down by fifty-one
roads,showiugau average addition to each
of less than ten and one-third miles. Tbis
is the smallest mileage of new track con
structed in a like period in thirty years.
In 1893, which was considered a very bad
year, the new construction amounted to
2,035 miles, and in 1892 it aggregated 4,200
miles, while in 1887 it reached about 13.0H0
miles. The second half of 1894 is, if possi-
sible, less promising in tbis rospect than
the elapsed half, and as a consequence the
year l'iUl will probably mark tho mini
mum limit of railway construction in this
country at least for many years.
It is not alone the dull times iu business
and manufacturing circles says the India
napolis Journal, or tbe disturbed condi
tion of monetary affairs th it have brought
this to pass. For mauy years past, up to
tbe beginning of tbe passing decade, we
have built railroads not only rapiuiy but
recklessly. New lines bave stretched out
into uew territory, across unsettled plains
or through uninhabited forosts where
scores of miles would not furnish a pound
of freight in a year or a passenger in a
mouth merely to bead off some appre
hended rivalry, or to punish some enemy.
In other cases parallel lines bave been built
with tbe sole eud in view ot forcing the
rich and prosperous companies auected by
tbe threatened competition to buy them up.
And if this sort of blac kmail has been m-
Bisted a competition in business bas result
ed ruinous to all concerned and ending in
bankruptcy for the roads, and tbe suori
flee ot thousands ot dollars by deluded
subscribers to stock who had been per
suaded to invest their hard-earned dollars
iu an enterprise that seemed to promise
fnirlv for a izenerous reward. Although
railroad building iu the United States has
received a check from which it is not
likelv to recover for some years, there is
not iu this fact cause for regret. We do
not need more railroads at present, except
hern and there a short line to connect
with a market some isolated locality. We
have more trunk lines than there is busi
ness for and the construction of more enn
only result in injury to those we already
bnve, while tbe atnek-jobber will bo the
only one to be benefited.
Minor Industrial Notes:
Freight traffic on tho railroads has com
pletely recovered from tue elroe.r.s of tho
strike and has resumed uormnl conditions.
As a rosult of the excesivo production in
Juno and tbe large output during tbe
present nioiitb.it is said anthracite coal
prices have gone to pieces. Some leading
interests admit selling stove coal in New
York nt 13 40, or 75 cents below the July
circular, nud no buyer will be refused con
cessions by any company.
The Eendiug Railroad company, which
owns tho Tidewater canal, running from
rightsville to Havre de Grace, on Chese
peake bay, line refused ovortures from the
Pennsylvania Canal company, looking to
ward tne repairing ot the damaged section
of the canal. As a result, some sixty of
the Pennsylvania Canal company's best
boats are blockaded below Marietta.
