THE SCEANTON TRIBUNE TUESDAY MORNING, AUGUST 14, 1894.
The Iron Trade BevUw iayi! "The
Iron trade txpeeti little from August,
and ill exprctattons are not being ex
ceeded In current business. From the
south comes the report that one large
producer aeeured an adranee of 23
oenta In recent ealei, but this is offset
ky some cutting from quoted rates by
certain western producers of foundry
iron. Eastern couiutueri of Bessomei
are in the market, but hare not yet
been able to get Pittsburg producers to
tneet their ideas. Sales at Pittsburg
are of small volume, with prices ap
proximately at a valley basis of $11 for
deliveries three months ahead, buyers
Truo ordinarily enter the market for
round lots of billets have confined
themselves to small contracts of late,
the condition of the billet market, as
well as that of Bessemer pig, making it
out of the question for buyers and sell
ers to agree in their foreeast of the
next three months. Latent Pittsburg
transaetloBS indicate less flrmusss in
billets, with nearly all the mills in
Pittsburg and Wheeling districts run
ning to full capacity. With a tariff
bill substantially agreed upon, as now
seems to be the fact, thire may be au
attempt to emerge from the uncertain
ty that has so long bound bnsinsss.
The final disposition of iron ore and
ether items of interest to the iron trade
bodes no improvement in prices, to Bay
the least, if latest reports as to terms
of agreement ore to le acoepted."
General Manager Henderson, of the
Reading Coal and Iron company, says,
in response to a request for information
regarding the report that a readjust
ment of anthracite percentages is con
templated: "There is nothing unusual
now going on. Tne anthracite mana
gers are continually agitating this
question. At present there is no inten
tion of adopting radioal measures. - At
the meeting of the anthracite coal sales
agents, to be held this month, it is
probable that the question of readjust
ment will be disoused, and the mana
gers of the anthraette companies will
then eonslder it. It is true, as stated,
tbat President Harris is opposed to a
reduction of the lieadiux's atlotineut,
and I think it can be said that be will
ot consent to it. It is foolish to sv
that because the company mined 20J
per cent, of totul lust month, when
only seventeen collieries were working,
that its regular allotment should not
oxceed twenty-one per cent I think
tbat is n reason for giving the Reading
a larger allotment. All the collinrias
have been olosed for the balance of the
week, and a number of them will be
olcned next week."
For the year ended June 80 the Illi
nois Centrul railroad reports gross
earnings of $20,857,464, an increase of
$002,274; expenses, $'4,869,416, an iu

The submarine torpedo boat project
bss again come to the front. The
board of naval bureau chiefs have been
looking Into the past action ot the de
partment and baa taken steps to have
the construction bureau examine the
plans for the Holland boat and report
on tbelr feasibility. There is an ap
propriation of $200, 000 available from
last year's appropriation bill for tbis
purpose, but the ordinance officers,

The Pennsylvania railroad in July
moved 107,05 loaded cars, against T7.U7U

from the Debs strike, its immense coal

A certain Lieuteuaut Colonel Nash left
an annuity to tho bell ringers of llath to
"toll dolefully" on each ounlversury of his
wedding duy, uud coutrito Mr. Withipol,
of Walthaiintow, left the bulk of his prop

I may say its I think, assuring myself, that
tho will niurry uo iinin, fur (ear to meet

his vuU-t a wurnout portmanteau, ns It
contained aomethiug, said the will, which
would make him drink. Theexcited valet
ripped open the trunk und found a red
herring in It. So, doubtless, did tho Scotch
gentleman who, in 1077, left to his sou's
care bis two wor.st watches, "becaiuio," ho
said, "I know he Is sure to dissect thorn."
