THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE FRIDAY MORNING. .AUGUST. 31,", 1894.
Rumors srs again circulated, ssys
the Wilkes-Barre Ktoord, to tbs Qot
tbat big pUn It on foot to concentrate
ths control of tbs anthreslte coil roads
which Include the Rending, Lehigh
Valley, Jersey Central, D-laware and
Had eon and . Delaware, Lieltawann
and W.i ern luto a few bands, and it ii
openly asserted tbat tbe RotlscbiMs
nnd Vanderbllts are workl ig in har
mony on the scheme. The former bare
bfen buyers of Reading stock and
bonds, reports to tbe sontrary notwith
standing, but the extent ot their pur
chaste is not known. Tbat control of
Reading bis not changed since laat
year is admitted, but it is not improb
able that the big solders could be i
dnced to join in a plan, tbe objeet of
which would be control of all tbe anth
ricite conl currying and producing
companies. These are only rumors,
bowerer, and may be taken for what
Ibey are worth. It will be a long time
before tbe antbrasite coal trade is cor
railed into a monopoly.
The Indianapolis Journal pays the
following tribute to a distinguished
Scrantonian: "W. F. Hallstead, gen
eral manager of the Delaware, Lacka
wanna and Western road, has just
completed bis forty-second year of ser
Tie with tbat company. lie began as
a brakeman in 1853, was afterward
conductor, train dispatcher, assistant
superintendent, general superintendent,
and on Jane 1, 1836, was appointed
general manager of . this powerful aud
and wealthy corporation. In the east
he is oredited with being one of the
ablest transportation men in the coun
try, and under him the road hs been
highly prosperous. Ho is now 57 years
of age and quite aotive. He keeps b I ra
se!' fell intonnid regarding the da
ta. J of bis work, and is as hard a
worker as the late John Newell."
The manufacturers of window glass
of tbe western district met at the Hol
leuden hotel in Cleveland Wednesday.
M. W. Watson, of Pittsburg, presided,
Some forty factories were represented,
including all those of any prominence
in tbe district. There was much feel
ing beoause the glass workers made a
settlement with an Individual manu
facturer at wages lower than they of
fered tbe regularly authorized wages
committee of the manufacturers and
there was' a -strong sentiment in
favor ot the manufacturers treat
ing directly with individual workers in
the settlement and starting three or
four non-union factories, having the
moral and financial support of the mat
of tbe manufacturers. This would be
a startling departure in tbe window
glaBS business. Tbe movement has not
taken practical form, but is being con
sidered. Tbe new scale, as accepted by
a few manufacturers, was tborougbly
disousssd and all agreed tbat it
was simply impossible to make
glass and compete with the foreign
product under the reduced tariff.
It was said tbat Mr. Chambers,
of Pittsburg, stated that it required a
10 per cent, wage reduction to meat the
lower tariff and yet he aeeepted a re
duction equal to only 19 per cent. The
entire wages matter was left in the
bands of tbe wages committee with
full authority to act. About 29,000
men will be affected by the act! on of
tbe wages eommittse. The western
association controls about three quar
ters ot the window glass manufactur
ers of the country.
Substsntial progress toward a re
organization ot tbe Reading railroad
compauy bae been made. J. Kennedy
Todd and F. W. Whitridge, repressnt
tag tbe Olcott committee of New York
bondholders, were recently at Puila
delpbia with both tbe receivers and
Messrs. Earle and Tyler, representing
tbe Philadelphia committee. Substan
tial progress toward complete harmony
was made, and the New Yorkers
left for home apparently well pleased
with tbe result ot tbeir oonfer
ence. One of the receivers stated
tbat an outline of a plan had been sub
mitted by the New Yorkers; but the
details of it were cartfully guiriled,
It was also learned tbat the Philadel
phia committee had succeeded in hav
ing underwritten $3,000,000 of the re
paired $4,800,000 m-eessary to fund the
Itenetal mortgage onupons, and that
the whole amount oonld readilv have
been secured there. Out of deffsrence
to the New York people, who desired
fo'tf participate, further subscriptions to
The food in Philadelphia were de
noon aside nl ' ' '
w.(H,s vry Interesting feature of the
developments was tbe evident strength
ot ezAPostmaster General Wanamaker
In cooWetion with reports that coupled
his name with the incoming presidency
of too Reading. Although Mr. Wana
maker Vtaas as yet carefully refrained
from . aommitting himself, be: bat
dropped a .few words ;that are signifi
cant: "I believe tbat I could reor
ganize Reading, and that very
ihortly." The opinion is rapidly gain
lug ground' that fal. re to re-organizs
Ibe company within very short time
will mean - Mr, Wanamaker's olectlon
ns president of the Reading company.
While Mr. Wanamaker is very gnarded
in bis utterances, there are few if any
who are familiar with Reading affairs
who do not entertain the opinion that
be would consent to become a candi
date, if properly approaehed by any re
spectable number of security holders,
Some of the affects of " be drought
npon colliery Interests a Luzerne
county are thus portr ed io tbe
tbe Wilkes Barre eorrei Andente of
the Hazleton Staudard: ' The Susque
hanna Coal company still has plenty of
water, being supplied by the Nantiooke
Water oompany from its dam on Har
vey's creek, whioh is fed from Harvey's
lake. There is no danger of a cessation
of work on the account of water. ' The
Lehigh Valley Coal company gets its
water supply for collieries from the
Spring Brook Water oompany, which
has its main on tbe west side along tbe
Wyoming road. Besides, this company
bas bnilt a pumping station near tbe
Prospect oolliery and a reservoir at
tbat place is kept tilled with water
pnmped from tbe river. Tbe Henry,
Wyoming and Prospect mines arc
thus supplied and there is no
fear of stoppage. The Lehigh and
Wilkes-Barrc Coal company bas
water cnongh to ka its collieries run
ning for tbe new two months, even
without rain. Thl oompany is sup
plied with water rom tbe Crystal
Spring company. ' lich as yet has a
food supply. The latter company
drained the Xlntake dam at tbe foot of
No. i plane, Ashley, and will tilean its
entire bed.' While the dam is being
' elssned a relay pipe is being used whioh
carries all the water past it and on to
where needed. The process' recently
adopted by the Crystal Spring coppany
of aerating the water la novel aud suc
cessful in removing the bad tasUf The
water is forced. tbrouaJi a nerforated

eighty feet in tbe sir, The boles bored
In the pipe are at various angles and
tbe water is sent into the air in form
of spray.' The color is unchanged and
will remaia so until tbe filters come.
These latter are a certainty aud it is
only a question now with tbe company
as to wuioh system will be adopted."

Minor Industrial Notes:
Bnruside colliery, of Shamokin, and
North Franklin colliery, ot Treverton,
have closed down indefinitely, Tbe stop
page ie caused by tbe scarcity ot orders
received by tbe Reading Coal and Iron
company. By the closing down of these
two collieries many men and boys will be
thrown out of work.
Bo scarce is water in the vicinity of Sil
ver Brook that tbe stringing of a pipe
line to Still creek, about tnree miles dis
tant, is being seriously considered by the
Leblgh and Wilkes-Barre Coal company.
Only one steam shovel Is working there,
and the collieries will crawl nut of a nar
row bole if they work all week with the
present supply of water.
Tbe LebigU and Wilkes-Barre Coal com
pauy nre constructing a new loke road
from No. 5 breaker, near Hazleton, to
what is known as "Honkcydory," or west
No. 8, a distance of one and one-balf miles.
It was deemed necessary to build this new
link to remove tbe old road from its pres
ent location so tbat a large vein of coal
tbat lies under it can be stripped.
Next Monday tbe first car will be run
over tbe hbataokin-Mt. C'armel Street rail
way from tbe I'lillu lolpUia and Heading
station, Mt. Carruol, to Gutter's furra, a
distance of six miles. Over this route four
cars will pas?, making fast time. Tbe la
bor of constructing tbe intervening space
of road not built between Alt. Caruiel and
Bbauiokin will be pusbed with tbe utmost
rapidity and by Oct. 15 the eutire system
will likely be in operation, with thirteen
An Unfortunate Mistake.
A youug gflntlemau had an engagement
With the daughter of a prosperous citizen
to attend tbe theater. The young lady sug
gested that they use the family carriage,
ami the galiunt was too polite to decline.
Ou the morning of tbe engagement the
young lady asked her father to please stop
in Air. Bowcrsox'a office and inquire where
be wanted the carriage to coll for him
The kindly old gentleman did so. lie
stepped in tbe office, and calling to th
young man, said:
"I want to see you about that carriage."
"Wuit a moment," said the youth, cvl
dently agitated. He laid down bis pen,
and coming from behind the desk led his
visitor into a far corner and continued: "1
can't settle that just now, as I am deucedly
hard up. I'll fix it by the middle of the
month, dead sure.'r
"What do you mcanf" said the old gen
tleman. "Why, uin't you the collector for the
Gouge 'cm Transfer company."
"No, I'm not. I'm Miss Bondholder'
father, and want to know where my car
riage is to be sent for you tonight?"
He went to tho theater in tbe carriage
but he did not enjoy it much. Louisville
Various Expressions for Long Distances.
The measures of long distances have
varied widely at different times and with
different nations, to gay nothing of the
comparisons used in different sections ol
our country. For instance:
The Jews said, "from Dan to Beersheba.1!
The Persians say, "from Medina tc
The F.nglish say, "from Land's End tc
John o' Groat's."
Tbe Yankee says, "from Maine tt
The southerner says, "from Florida te
The Sucker and Hoosiersays, "from the
groat lakes to the gnlf."
The South American says, "from tbe
Isthmus to the Horn."
In Louisiana they say, "from New Or
leans to Pittsburg."
In California the common expression is,
from Altaville to Pilot Knob." "-''
Two lives Saved.
Mrs. Phoebe Thomas, of Junction City,

her, but two bottles Dr. King's New Dis

Paskola works wonders I
The ereat pre-digested food tbat
makes people well ,is winning mora
praises by reason of what it has done for
dyspeptlo sufferers than any other pre
parations ever offered to tbe public
A person who eaffjrs from this dis
tressing complaint usually feel a gnaw
ing at the stomach, an "all gone" feel
ing as if suffering from want of food.
There is a bad taste in the month, a
coated tongne, gas rises from the
stomach and sometimes there is sick
ness with a constant headache.
When people lose flesh, they goner
ally begin to feel alarmed. Tbey want
to regain wbat tbey bave lost. Some
times they are unfortunate enoush to
take cod liver oil for tbat purpose. The
effect of cod liver oil taken into a weak,
disordered stomach Is to make dyspep

well person. Imagine its effects on a

Bat modern scieoee bas happily pnt

finding ont tbat tbe way to cure dys
pepsia is not to make it worse. They
are discovering tbat tbe best way to
get flesh is to digest tbeir food properly
and that when tbeir food is well di

Paskola is a pre-digested food which
gives nourishment without tho aid of
thestomaeb. It contains those prinei
ples wbisb are essential to tbe natural
digestive process it aids digestion.
When it is taken, it enters at once into
tbe tissues of the body giving instant
nourishment. It permits the stomaoh
to take a rest and get into a better con
dition. Paskola is pleasant to tbe taste and
agreeable to tbe most sensitive stomach.
It bas no nauseating or bloating effdots

ates a healthy appetite, It drives

Sequin, Tex., January 14, 1893.
Messrs. Lippmas Bros. , Savannah,
Ga. : Uentltmenl have tried your P.
P. P. fr a disease of the skin, nsuallv
known as skin cancer ,of thirty years' M
standing, and found great relief; It -
puriflea the blood and removes all Ir- ' 'Usv
rltatlon from the eeut of the disease JfiP
and prevents any spreading of the m,
aortts. I have taken fiveor six bottles "-l-
and feol oontldent that soother course
will effect a cure. It has also relieved
me from Indigestion aud stomach
troubles, yours truly,
