THE SCRANTON1 TEI RUNE-WEDNESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 19, 189.
The business situation bni not im
proved la any marked way, saya tbe
Philadelphia Praia. As compared with
tbe stagnation and sollapat of a few
weeks ago it ia better, bat tbe point of
prosperity bas not been approached,
and in many cases recent aotivity ia
falling off. The earnings of rallroals
in August were nine-tenths of lpr
cent, larger than in the chief puuio
month of 1893 Daring tbe first week
in September the fifty-four railroads
reporting rande a worse showing, their
gross earnings having fallen off 1.23
per -cent. There waa a heavy increase
in the production of pig iron in Au
gust, and this is the boat item in the
trade newt. But this increased ontpnt
of pig iron, which is just about equal to
the dmnnd, is 25 par cent, below
the production of the Dent recont year.
The manufacturers bfficted by the
tariff have looked over the gronnd.and
they are not able to make much of a
start because they do not know how
far foreign competition will anVct
them. Toe strike and lockout in Kali
River baa inore.'ised the prio of print
ing cloths, and bas reduced stocks, but
the men refuan to go to work, liiuk
clearings are 8 per cent, greater thun
tbey were a year wro, 19 J to 25 per
cent less than iu IStU!, and somewhat
'less than in the previous week. The
anthracite coal traue is in worse shape
than ever.- Prices are exceedingly low,
aud the producing companies are
tending nn over supply of coal
to inarkot. The exports in Aui?ut
of the four principal items cotton,
breadstuff, petroleum nd provisions
show a falling oil of $11,01)3.481, or 23
per eeot., and for eignt months
m.Wi xrts from New Yoric fell
18 per cent, last week, Boot and shoe
shipments from Boston are again rnneh
heavier than lust year. The dry goods
trade is leas aotive, the nd ranee in the
prices of many varieties of cotton goods
Having cheeked buying. Wool sales in
the leading mirkets dnring the Inst
two weeks were 8,200,000 pounds, as
compared with 16,4W,OJ0 pounds ia one
week in July. The wool trade is dis
posed to wait until the result of tbe
sales in London is known. London,
in oe tbe new tariff bill went into ef
fect, makes the market for wool in this
broad lund, and eontrols the prices
more arbitrarily than ever before.
All work on the great Ebervale
tunnel is now at a standstill. The com
pany was actively getting ready to tap
tbe Ebervale and Harleigh mines and
in a few dnys more expected to have
the tap-bole finished. This bas an
opening at tbe bns3 of the Back moun
tain, and the water to be tapped by it
from tbe above mentioned mines will
empty into the Little Nesnopeek sreek,
a stream which bas its source near
tbe mouth of tbe tunnel and runs
through tbe townships of Butler and
Sugar Loaf for a distance of nearly
seven miles before it empties into the
Big Nescopeck. In these townships
are some of tbe best farm lands to be
found in the state, in the center bf
which and winding its way to the Sus
quehanna river is the Little Noseopeck,
which for more than a ceatary bas
been of great benefit to those whose
farms lined its banks. When it became
rumored about four years ago that tbe
Jeddo Tunnel company intended to
pollute this stream by emptying the
water from tbe mines into it the farm-
era raised a bowl, which caused the
company to send agents among tuem
to negotiate for the right of way, In
due time asettlement was effected with
nearlv all in sums varying from 500 to
$8,000, according to the value of the
There are about twenty farms bor
dering on the ereek, and for tbe right
of way tbe tunnel company paid up
wards of $50. 000. One farmer by the
name of John Gutting, who lives about
three miles from the month of the
tnnne), conld not be fixed, although he
waa offered $1,000 at different times by
tbe company. Be was prompted in his
stubbornness by a Philadelphia law
firm, tbe same firm having acted for
many others In the valley for the set
tlementof their claims. Notwithstand
ing Mr. Getting's refusal the sompany
went on with the! work of boring tbe
tunnel and bad almost forgotten that
there was such a person in i
istence, until he turned up on
Friday with an injunction which
immediately put a atop to tbe
work and will delay the tapping of the
mines for some time. Tbe matter will
be argued before the conrt oo Monday,
Sept. 24, and the decision will be
awaited with moch interest. Mr. Get
ting, in his plea to tbe conrt for an
injunction to restrain tbe Jeddo Tun
nel company from tapping the mines.
says that bis farm is valurd at $20,000
and that the rush of culm will render
it useless and of no value at all. Rep
rrsentatives of the tnnnel company
say mat tbe damage to tbe valley
by the tapping of the mine will not
umount to one-hrtietb o! the sum paid
by them to the land owners for the
right or way. The water, they say.
will be drawn from tbe mine very
gradually, and at ho time will there be
a flood in tbe creek. The tan will be a
4-inch hole, penetrating for many feet
in tbe hardest kind of rocs, and when
the water that is now lodged in tbe
mine is entirely drawn away that
which will follow will have very little
acid in it and the creek will again be
come pure for all purposes.
Tbe total value of the mineral pro
ducts of tbe United States in 1803 was
the smallest sines 189, according to a
recently issued report of the govern
ment geological survey. It represented
$000,821,070, compared with $088,610.
Ki in 1882, a decline of 11 44 per cent.
The most eonspicnous decline was in
iron and structural materials. Bituml
nous coal showed a slight increase in
Quantity over the prodnot in 1892 Pe
troleum increased In value bnt decreased
in quantity. Pig iron declined from
9,157.000 tons in 1892 to 7.124.502 tons

fell from 10.200 666 tons, worth $33,-
204,890, to 11,587.629 tons, worth $19,-

Washburn-Crosby Co. wish to assure their many
patrons that they will this year hold to their usual
custom of milling STRICTLY OLD WHEAT until the
new crop is fully cured. New wheat is now upon the
market, and owing to the excessively dry weather
many millers are of the opinion that it is already
cured, and in proper condition for milling. Washburn-Crosby
Co. will take NO RISKS, and will allow
the new wheat fully three months to mature before
This careful attention to every detail of milling has
placed Washburn-Cro3by Co.'s flour far above all
