A special to tha Philadelphia Record
frsm Nsw York lavs the formal dsn
for tha reorganization of the Reading
BailrOBd company will b presented to
in receivers of tbs company, wnut
id attain of tbli plan have been care
fully cuarded It ia considered abso
lately certain that do assessment of tbe
took and junior aeoaritiei is contemp
lated. Tbe atook and reference bond'
holders will be asked, however, to sob-
on Be to an lasne of 5 per cent collat
eral trust bonds at a fair price, $10 -000.000
of whlcb, backed by $15,000,000
securities, are now in tbe company's
treasury, una refunding of tbe gen
eral mortgage sonpons for tbe period
of five years and tbe creation of a vot
ing trnst dnring tbe period of refund
ing is another provision, though tbe
voting trnst features is snsceptible to
a change in favor of a representation
on tbe board of managers of
tbe general mortgage and preference
income bondholders. Tbe $3,000,000
or more of equipment notes coming
due are also to be taken care of and a
new car trust will likely be created. As
to the funds necesasry to oarry out the
provisions of tbe proposed plan it is
well known that Philadelphia has al
ready under written $3,100,000 of the
amount requisite to refund the general
mortgage coupons and could readily
have raised tbe balance. The receivers
of the Reading company, having given
nssurance of their hearty co-operation
in the matter of reorganization and
tbe principal featnres of, tbe proposod
plan having been thoroughly can
vassed, the prospects of the submission
of a re organization plan to tbe secur
ity holders at a very early day are ex
ceedingly fluttering,
Application has been made by Fran
Ms J. Gowen receiver of the Senth Jer
sey Railroad company, to Jadge.Dallas,
n the United States circuit court, for
tn order to provide tot the payment of
vages of employea it was related that
tbe men was not paid during June, July
and August and that there is coming to
tbetn about $39,000 for wbieh they
hold time checks. Ttie complainant cred
itors and some of the bondholders of
tbe road were represented by connsel,
but before the discussion had pro
ceeded far the judge held that the mat
ter was not at this time in such shape
that an order could be made.
Tbe Newport Coal company, which
operates several collieries near Wilkes
Barre, has been in financial distress for
some time. Operations were continued,
however, until Tuesday, when the col
liery at Lee passed into tbe hands of
tbe Lehigh iid Wilkes-Barre Coal
company, Tiie Newport company
operated under a lease and the Lebigh
and Wilkes-Barre company held a
mortgage on tbe property, wbicb will
be advertised for sale at once. It com
prises about 500 acres of first class an
thracite coal, which is said will yield
no less than 11,000,000 tons if operated
to Its full capaeity. As several parties
have been negotiating for tbe lease
hold interest of tbe Newport company,
it is ezpectod that sufficient money will
be realized from tbe sale to satisfy all
outstanding indebtedness. Meantime
tbe Lehigh and Wilkes-Barre company
guarantee tbe payment of tbe employes
for the work done daring July and
A important conference on tbe af
fairs of tbe Philadelphia and Reading
railroad was held in Naw York Tues
day afternoon. It was attended by
George Earle, jr., P. L. Tyler, of Phil
adelphia and by Fred P. Oicott, of
New York, and otber members of
what is known as the Oicott commit
tee of tbe general mortgage bondhold
ers' committee. It was agreed to
consolidate tbe Philadelphia commit
tee, of which Mr. Earle is chair
man, with the Oicott committee and a
Bub-committee was appointed to draft
a plan for the re-organization of tbe
Reading company, (Some time will be
ocsnpied with tbis work. It is 're
garded as likely that there will be nn
assessment on the Reading stock and
income bonds for wbich a new seenrity
will be given. Tbe coupons on tbe
general mortgage bonds will also be
funded for a limited period.
At a recent meeting of the executive
and financial committee of tbe Lake
Shore and Michigan Southern Ruilway
company, Monday, D. W. Caldwell,
president and manager of the Nickol
Plate road, was appointed general man
ager in tbe place of tbe late John New
ell, who was president and general
manager. There was no president ao
pointed, but D, W. Forester was elected
as vice president.

gives us relating to tbe freight traflia

Tbe record presented, as we pointed
ont when dealing with tbe passenger
business, does not covsr a uniform
period, but takes in all returns made
up to the close of the various fiscal
yearsiof tkeseveral companies reporting.
Tbe period of depression is, therefore,
only partly represented, those state
ments made which come down only to
June 30, or even to an earlier date, as
they do in a few instances, of which
ock Island and the Chicago and
Northwestern may be cited as the most
important examples, reflecting a period
when traffics were good rather than
otherwise. Tbe result is that we have
an unusual inorease in tonnage and
ton mileage, but for ; the reason stated,
tbe falling off In rates, no such corre
sponding increase in earnings.
' la order to make profits under such
conditions, managers have before them
a task wbioh it seems is destined to
present new phases and difficulties
without end. There has not ben a
year when the average was as low as
in 1893, and inferentially not a year
when earnings were in more demand
to meet the requirements of tbe operat
ing department. Tbe fact that no step
in tba otber direction appears to
be possible long ago demonstrated
tbtft oapital outlays were necessary in
order to provide facilities to meet snob,
a condition, If the vast sums already
invested were to continue to receive
any remuneration at all. - As it is we
are reminded by the statistics wbioh
emanate from trustworthy Bourses,
every now and then, that the rate of
profit progresses towards the diminish
ing point, showing that What has been
done to avoid ills actnal disappearance
bas not been too well done, nor done
any too quickly.
Last Friday tbe Woodward colliery
of the Delaware, Laokawanna and
Western Coal company broke its
former record by 108 cars. Some
months ago they broke the record by
hoisting M00 ears, which was banner
hoist np a deep shaft. Tbe hoist made
oa Friday was 1,503 ears, which was
done in ten honrs, tbe number of tons
amounting to 8 ISO, Tbe throttle was
handled by Engineer Thomas Smith
withoat a mishap. Superintendent W.
O. Williams- and Assistant Superin
tendent William Beaobam'1 were at
work, both in and out of the mine, ar
ranging tbelr forces of men.
The Portage Iron works, at Duncans
ville, resumed operations in all the de
partments. Tbe resumption ends an
eight-months' strike among tbe pnd
dlers, who have finally aoceptsd tbe
wages of $2 75 per day, the rate first
offered by their employers. The works
will go on double turn, and will em
ploy 050 meu.
Fire, presumably of inoendlary origin,
on last Saturday destroyed the Huin
boldtcollieryat Hszleton. There was no
fire about tbe building wbatever, and
it has not been in operation for soma
months. Linderman & Skeer, tbe
operator, bad been removing machin
ery from it, and the most valuable en
gines were not in tus'blaza. Tbe total
loss to the compauy will be about $10,
000. ., . ,

and bonds of good standing. Bruco Chand

The Chesapeake and Ohio is making im

several hundred thousand dollars, includ
ing an expensive iron bridge across tbe
Big Sandy river and elevated tracks

A number of western roads are dosing
the less important stutions and dismissing
tbe aiienta. Ou the St. Josuph and Grand
Islund ruad notices of tbe closing of a
dozen or more stations hive been sent ont.
This is partly due to the failure of the
crons and partly to tbe fact that the in
habitants of such towns have moved away.
Stocks and Bonds.
New York, Sept. 5. As in yesterday
tbe stock market continued entirely pro
fessional in its character with tbis differ
ence, however, that today operators were
inclined to be bearish, whereas yesterday
the bullish sentiment was in the ascend
ant. At the start certain railway issues
ran off X to per cent., while Sugar,
Wostern Union, Lake Shore and Lead
advanced as much. The early loss was
soon recovered, however, notwithstand
ing foreign and local selling to realise
profits. Tbe improvement was based
partly on the favorable railway earnings
for the fonrth week and month of August,
and the statement by Pennsylvania rail
road officials that west-bound traffic was
picking up at a satisfactory rate.
Subsequently the market drifted into
dullness and tbis resulted in a
general decline of to 9 per
ceut. Iu the last hour there was a
fractional rally but owing to a renewed
Belling movement In American Sugar
which carried that stock down to tbe
lowest point of the day, tno recovery in
the general list whs lost. The market in
consequence closed barely steady. The
transactions were smaller than on yester
day, footing np only 160.000 shares against
lib, 000 on Tuesday. . Net changes show
losses of yi to per cent.

Silk Is Tery Popular, but All Wool Fabrics
Are StUl Worn.
Although silk is so much worn this sea
son, flue wool fabrics are by no means out
of tbe mode. All the old standard weaves
are shown in the new colors, while crepons,
both all wool and silk and wool mixed, ore
seen with new variations. They may be
self trimmed or combined with satin and
moire. Ihs latter Is worn in all colors, al-
though block seems to be the favorite, as it
always Is In moire, Pretty woolen gowns
are made with a yoko or vest, belt and
gigot sleeves of bcngalino or moire, tbe
Bklrt being trimmed with bias silk bands to
match, or the sleeves may be of the woolen
goods, with a balloon pull of silk reaching
from shoulder to elbow. Fine gimp or gal
loon trimming is used as a finish.
The popularity of silk seems to have giv
en a fresh impetus to the ribbon trade, and
ribbons are shown in an unusually wido
range of color, width and stle. Satin faced
moire and double-faced satin or peau de
sole come in beauWully soft, rich qualities,
and satin backeu velvtt ribbon may bo
found in all tbe fashionable shades, but
crosgrain ribbon seems to have gone out in
lompany with grosgruin silk both ore in
visible. Ribbon Is much used this year not
only for millinery, but for trimming cos
tumes in bows, bands and ruffles, and is a
particularly pretty garniture for light sum
mer goods, such as muslins, nainsooks and
challies. It is not confined to tbe trimming
of tbin gowns, however, but is used on
heavier toilets and wraps by itself or com
bined with black, white or cream lace.
An illustration is given of a summer
walking costume composed of tbin lettuce
green crepon. The skirt is plain on the
right side, but is draped over the left hip,
tbe drapery being held in place by a large
silver buckle. The back of tbe skirt has
no trimming, but tbe front and sides are
ornamented with two oblique bands of
wide white moire ribbon. Tbe plain round
bodice fastens invisibly under tbe left arm,
the back being In one piece, plaited in at
tbe waist. A doable band of ribbon is car
ried from tbe nnder arm seam ou the right
side across the front to tbe left shoulder,
where it is fastened under a bow with loug
ends, and a ribbon belt confines tbe waist.
The gown has gigot Bleeves.
The raising of a Fright and the Coming oi
Pretty Dust Cloaks.
The linen duster of 80 years ago bas en
tirely disappeared. It was a strictly util
itarian garment, suggesting overalls, in
geniously constructed so as to not only cov
er and protect the gown, but conceal every
good point of the wearer, emphasizing tbe
bod ones if there were any. A more unbe
coming article of apparel could not be de-
vised, and how women ever persuaded
themselves to appear in such attire Is a
marvel. But we have changed all that.
The linen duster is obsolete, and in its place
we have dust cloaks made of surah, gloria
silk or thin worsted goods, fashionably cut,
carefully made, becomingly trimmed and
well fitting. Buttons, stitching, braid,
passementerie and guipure may be used as
a garniture, although all heavy trimming
should be avoided, as these dust cloaks
are strictly hot weather garments, and
lightnesses fjiisideratuni. They not only
protect flietlress from dust and cluders,
but as tWcostume Is completely covered
It is possible to wear on hot days tbe thin
nest sort of muslin gown under the cloak
without the fact being apparent,
There is an unwritten law, which no well
bred woman ever infringes, against wearing
In tbe street a bodice thin enough to allow
tbe arms and neck to appear through the
stuff, but a loose coat of thin Bilk conceals
tbe diaphanous gown and Adds little to the
warmth of the wearer. These cloaks are
becomingly made, with a snugly fitting
back and straight front confined by a loose
girdle, or they may have a guipure covered
yoke and a full front. The sleeves are usual
ly loose and often made in bishop fashion.
As to. material, surahs and thin cloths are
used in all the duller shades.
A sketch is given of a dust cloak in tbin
silver gray cloth trimmed with silver but
tons. It is close fitting in the back, while
tbe front bangs straight from the shoul
ders. The large revers, extending below
the waist and sharply hollowed out at tbe
top, are fastened back by buttons. The
pockets, placed high on the hips, are also
adorned with buttons, as are the close cuffs
of the bouffant sleeves. Tbe plain stand
ing collar 1b surrounded by a flaring orna
mental collar lined with silk. The black
straw bat wbich accompanies tbe cloak is
trimmed with bluck ostrich tips.

i SunrlM on Mount St. Elfas.
In the morning I was awakened by the
croaking of a raven on tbe snow immedi
ately over my head, and found that the
soft blue light of my grotto was replaced
at the entrance by a pink radiance, telling
that the day had dawned bright and clear.
What a glorious sight awaited mel .The
heavens were without a cloud, and the sun
ahone with dazzling splendor on tbe white
robed mountains. The broad, unbroken
anow plain seemed to burn with light re
flected from millions of snow crystals. The
great peaks were draped from base to sum

by avalanohes. On the steep cliffs the

As the sun rose higher and higber and
made its warmth felt, the snows were
loosened here and there on the steep slopes

From a Bmall beginning high up on tbe

One of the oldest epitaphs upon a printer
is that inscribed upon a monument erected
In St. Mary's church, Datchet, to Chris

we shall quote. It purports to be written
by the defunct himself, but whoever wroto
it showed a pretty turn for making a merry
quip of a serious topic. No better idea of
death being a release from cares and
troubles could bo conveyed than In the fol
lowing lines:

Modern Convoraatlon.
Talleyrand, looking bade, declared that
he who had not lived before the French
revolution knew nothing of the charm of
living. Now, however, in England at least,
conversation, like letter writing and a
hundred otber social joys of a quiet and
leisurely age, is fled, and in their place we
have telegrams, slang and slovenliness.
There seems to be a general agreement
that in our time conversation is in a bad
way. 'Without repose, without a certain
strain of old world courtesy, without
manners, in short, conversation is impossi
ble. Many will agree with M. Renon, who
finds this to be a pushing, selfish, demo
cratic age, of wbich "first come first served"
is tho rule, and which has ceased to pay any
heed to civility. Nor is this a question
only of manners. ,
When tbo philosopher Schopenhauer
used to dine in toil coat and white tie at
the table d'hote In Frankfort he usod daily
to place a gold piece beside his plate.
"That," he explained when asked, "is to
go to the poor whenever I hear the officers
discuss anything more serious than women,
dogs and horses." The gold piece always
reappeared, and I fear it would do so in
places nearer than Frankfort. Forty years
ago Sir Arthur Helps in "Friends in Coun
cil" pronounced the "main current of so
ciety dreary and dull." It has not improved
since. Gentleman's Magazine.
In China soanstone is largely used in

of preserving them iutact for hundreds of
years. '
Tbe number thirteen is supposed by
many to be unlucky, and if they find
themselves one of a party of that number
they will deport with haste. But why
should not the number thirteen be just as
lucky as twelve, fourteen or any otber
number? Many instances could be cited
to establish this principle were it neces
sary. Some of the Icelandic lakes are studded
