THE SCIi ANTON 'IB I DUN E THU R SD A Y MORNING, SEPTEMBER 20, 1894;
The Enulneoringand Mining Journal
hat become comparatively optlwistis
with refersnoe to tha autbractta trade.
After remarking that the market it no
worse now than at any time daring the
patt month or tix weeks, it declare!
that, "all rumors to the contrary not
withstanding, prises are no lower than
they have been of late. Tbe majority
of the ealea at extremely low figuros,
toeh ei, for instance 2$3 15 for stove,
have been of 'stock' coal, which oould
bare not been disposed of safe at these
low prices. Tbe people who circulate
each reports no justly neglect to qualify
tbem by mentioning the grade
of eoal sold, and that the im
presslon gains ground tbat all coals
are telling at such prices. Tbe
trade it in a bad enough condition
without tbe necessity of farther ag
gravating it by such needlessly pessi
mittio reports. To our own knowledge
good ttove coal hag told during the
week for $3.50. It ia a difficult matter
to quote prices which shall fairly rep
resent tbe market, at in tbe aosenee of
any ' business of conseqneuct such a
thing nt Botual prictt is impossible to
obtain. However, we should say that
fair quotations, if anything rather low,
would be today: Stove, $3 25i3 35;
chestnut and egg, $3,20j3 30; broken,
$3 153.25. Tbe highest grades, of
course, command higher prioas, jmt as
an odd . cargo of rusty or tlatey coal
might tell for less.
"During the patt few days, except
ing during the brief warm spell, retail
dealers in New York city have done a
better business and their coal hat
moved more freely than for some time.
They bavt not bought much ooal, how
ever, and thit is encouraging to tbe
producers, since by the depletion of
stocks in. dealers' yards and by tbe
continuance of tbe policy of restric
tion better prices ought, in the natural
order of things, to obtain a month
hencrf. Certainly, no one expects that
there will be a scarcity of coal at any
time thit year, but tbe tales agents
are nnanimous in declaring that
we shall not be treated again
to the stupid nnd demoralizing
overproduction of June or evan July.
On tbe other hand dealers and other
consumers here teem to believe that
any increase in tbe demand will be fol
lowed by a corresponding increase in
tbe production, which will render im
possible any great advanoe iu prices,
aince all tbe proiueers will be eager to
toll their coal to offset tbe period of de
pression tbrougb which we are pass
ing. Therefore contumert affect to be
lieve that there ia no need to make
haste in replenishing ttocks wbioh are
not yet low enough to cause them any
anxiety. Tbe market of late has been
all in tbe buyer's favor. Whether it
will continue to be to longer it is diffi
cult to sty."

Apropos of the recent rapid and re
markable growth of tbe trolley passen
ger railways throughout the state, the
Philadelphia Times, in an opportune
editorial, points out tbat the law which
authorizes trolley railways to take pos
session -of our punlto highwayt was
passed on May 14. 1889, and will be
found in the nnmphlut laws of that
year on page 211. "Wheu it was en
acted tbe trolley system wat praclic
ully unknown, although the use of
eleotrioity at a motive power for local
' roadt wat then regarJed at one of the
coming improvement! of tbe age. It
goet witbont laying tbat bad
the legislature appreciated the
growth of the trolley system
it would have made entirely dif
ferent provisions for the right of way.
Instead of giving the right to use
public highways by merely satisfactory
contracts with township supervisors,
the use of tbe highways would have
been prohibited generally, and tbe right
of way wonld doubtlst have been
given to the trolley corporations aa it
ii now obtained by otber railroads: tbat
it, by purchase or condemnation. Wheu.
tbe laic legislature was in testion the
trolley system was yet in its infancy
'.! ) and gave littU promise of extending
over the highways of the state and no
' immediate legislation wat deemed nec
Httary; bat the next legislatnre will
certainly have to meet the problem and
bolve it by protecting the public high
wayt and giving the right of purchrse
or condemnation to such corporations.
"The act of 1889 wat obviously in
tended solely to enable street railways
in townt and citiet to extend their
traoka outalde of the comorate limitt
for the general atcomodation of tubur
ban residents. In ordor to accomplish
tbat the railway compmiet were an
tborized to contract with the proper
nntnorities or tne townsmps ana turn
Dike companiet to enable them to ex
tend their linet. Unfortunately tbe
legislature did not deem it necessary to
place any restriction whatever on the
oxtent to which thit grant should be
exercised, and it it under the present
entirely unexpected coadltiont that tbe
trolley systems are enabled to travel
tbe public highways in any part of the
state by simply contracting with the
roa supervisors of tbe township,
Tbe local . supervisors, ss a rale.
ure not men who should be
charged with the power of grant
ing such extraordinary privileges to
corporations, and tbe legislature ob
viously did not intend that such power
should be exercised by them beyond
permitting the street railways of cities
and boronghs to tkirtt tbe suburbs for
the accommodation of the public Now
that the trolley hat become tbe railway
of tbe people, and it likely to grow
with great rapidity, the legislature
will neeessarily be compelled to define
with precision tbe terms on which it
shall obtain the right of way, Tbe
wise method wonld be to protect the
Highways lor the use of tbe people In
ordinary travel, and give the trolley
corporations the right to take property
by condemnation when necessary to
perfeot their lines. The trolley ia
here, and it is berc to stay, and it is
clearly the duty of the legislature to
define unmistakably tbe rights of these
corporations, and also the rights of tbe
people in their own highways.
. A new clement which many tblnk
-will prove something of a stumbling
block in tbe path or Heading reorgan
isation has cropped ont in ths state
ment that the Lehigh Valley railroad
would file claim against the Read
ing's receivers for unpaid rentals, de
stroyed equipment, etc, amounting to
fl.000,000. ' In consequence of this
claim, it is said tbat tbe Lehigh Valley
will demand the continuance of the
receivership. Tbe renort oould not be
officially confirmed, but several
Lebigh Valley officials wonld not
deny tbat tbe move is con
templated. The matter is treated light
Lv br the Reading people. It it an old
ttory, they tay. Instead of owing the
Lehigh Valley money, the snos is on
the otbsr foot, they claim. A member
of the reorganisation committee said
Saturday: "It is just tneb things si
thit which have prevented the reorgan
ization of Reading months ago. Now,
however, we have taken Into considera
tion everv claim that oan be made, and
oar plan will provide for all. We have
a sebems that will work, and you may
depend upon seeing the Reading in full
control of its own proptrty and pros
perous, it the plan it carried out."
Minor Industrial Notes:
The earnlncs of the Lake Erie and West
ern tha second week in SeDtember were
$720 in excesa of those of the correspond
ing week of ISM.
One of trafila mtnaeors of the Pennsyl
vania lines suvs that their cross business
is 33 per cent, larger than last year at this
time, ana tne increase ia not oonnneu iu
any one point or section, but is general.
Tbe roads to the Central Traffic associa
tion have agreed on winter tourist rates
for the forthcoming season. They are to
be 80 per cent, of double one-way rates to
all recognized winter resort. The pass
enger men will meet In Cinoinnati Sept. 25
to tlx tne rates ana get out rate sueew.

in this manner is muking fast time be

FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL.
Stocks and Bond.
New York. SeDt. 19 The trading ele
ment at the stock exchange experienced a
change of sentiment to-day, and a major
ity o( tbe big traders were working for a
recovery. An idea seemed to prevail tbat
the movement against sugar and distilling
had beoa carried toe far nnd tbat a rally
was overdue. Consequently they had very
little trouble In bringing about a raise of
to X per cent, in the Grangers. Louisville
aud Nashville, New England, Missouri,
Pacific prefurred and Reading. In the
industrials sugar opened lper cent, higher
to 97, fell V54 and rose to W
a 90a97. The feel'lug on this stock is more
bullish for the moment, but trading con
tinued entirely professional. Chicago Gas
waB very erratic, closing lower on the
day, after selling at 0?69. At a late
nour it was reported iruin rmmujipum
that application had been made for a re
ceivership by a stockholder named Levin.
It subsequently transpired that Levin
owned ten shares of tbe stock and
that the first to be apprised of
this suit in this city was a well known
firm not far from Broadway and Exchange
Plsce which is supposed to enjoy tbe confi
dence of tbe loading bears. This natur
ally robs tbe suit of much of its import
ance, so far as Wall street is concerned.
President Benedict, when te?n thissltsr
uoon, said he knew nothing about tbo
matter. The market closed firm. Total
sales were 186,100.

nardshlps of a Fisherman's Life.
The Gloucester fishermen sail away full
of hope and with a full larder. Arrived
on the grounds they anchor in about,forty
or fifty fathoms, and set their trawls.
These are long lines, anchored on theliot
tom, and extending out from the schooner
many hundreds of yards, To these at in
tervals of a fathom (the distance varies
for different fish) are attached shorter
lines. TIu-hb lines have to be attended in
dories, each containing two men, who
haul, bait and land the fish in tlio boat to
be transferred to the schooner. Herein lie
the danger and hardship, for the strong
tides of tbe banks and the shoal water pile
up great combing seas. The cold is cruel
and the work hard. Suddenly down comes
a fog, not the soft mist of summer or au
tumn, but a thick, heavy bank, soaked
through with the penetrating cold of the
icebergs farther north. Horns are blown
from the vessel, but every year many dories
One would think that common sense, if
not luw, would make each dory carry a
breaker of water and pilot bread, but none
does, and either experience does not teach or
the fisliermeu like such chances, for year
after year comes the same old story of a
lost dory uud two men sturved or dead of
thirst. When the fog lifts they are many
miles from their schooner, und are carried
by the swift tides they know not whither.
Then come days of hungur and thirst,
hands are fro.en to the ours, madness
haunts them, and then death. Some
times tliey make land or are picked up
by a panning vessel, in which case they
often return before their own schooner,
but that greut happiness is rare. Then
their vessel, which so gayly sailed out past
the light, comes home with ber flag at half
mast. IL Cleveland Coxe in Century.
The Solution Lies Deep.
Mazzlnl in bis day saw clearly, and never
fulled to see, that the uiun who thinks to
solve the riddle of the time by simply solv
ing its political or ecoMfcmio problem has
got but a little way beneath the surface.
The new synthesis which alone can satisfy
must take account of every capacity of
man und every hunger of his heart. The
paid attorney for the defense and the paid
preacher will not succeed by any poor
minimizing of material things to blunt
the shafts of the iuduhtriul reformer or
blind the eyes of the poor man to the visiou
of freedom which comfort gives.
But if we were all comfortable tomor
row, all well fed and well tailored and
easy payers of the income tax, and still
without the love of justice in our hearts,
without the love of beauty there, without
aught eternal there and absolute, without
any light there upon the greut mystery
into which the most comfortable among
us must hasten tomorrow, our perfect
commissariat would be but a poor prison,
and we, when at the end of the week its
new was worn off, of all men most miser
ablemore miserable fur than those ten
der women among the lions of the coli
seum, than II usb and Hooper in their fires,
than those poor persecuted covenanters,
or than the Pilgrim Fathers harried out
of England, all with heaven in their
hearts. New England Magazine.

well acquainted with the celebrated Alex

the confederate vice president:
Stevens wautcd the nomination for con

and hod as his opponent a big bodied, big
featured, big lunged man, who prided him
self on his herculean girth and bellowing
voice. Tbey came together at the hustings
aud the big man got tbe lloor. He held his
opponent up to ridicule, and wound up bis
harangue with these words:
"Why, look at that man," pointing to
Stevens as he sat, a mere bundle of skin
and bones, iu an invalid's perambulating
chair. "Look at him. I could swallow
him at one mouthful."
"Yes," piped Alex from the depths of
his chair, "uud if he did he'd have more
brains in bis stomach thun he's got iu bis

A Greut Truth from a Child.
Chilikou unconsciously come nearer great
truths than they think. Warren was the
owner of a canton flannel elephant, the one
idol of bis heart. From old age aud the
effects of constant bundling it had begun
to shed its sawdust. Early one Sunday
morning Warren's mother found him on
the floor of his room with a needle and long
thread, quietly sewing up a rip in the hind
leg of tbe animal. In rather a sharp tone
of voice she said: "Why, Warren 1 I am
ashamed of youl Sewing on Sunday! You
might have waited for tbat until tomor
row, I should thiuk."
While continuing to draw the thread

erent manner and with tbe calmest voice

Card Playing Among the Ancient Jews.
I do not know if tbe Jews were the in
ventors of card playing, but credit in that
matter is given to them by some researches,
and I am sure that the ancient Hebrews
were passionately fond of gambling. Isaiah
laments with the words, "Woe to those
who are preparing a table to God" (For
tune, or the god of the gamblers),. "and
they fill a drink to Meni" (the paying teller,
probably the bunker; meui meaning in
Hebrew to number). To what game the
venerable seer is alluding, whether to the
royal baccarat or to the common poker, I
do not know. But it is a matter of fact
that at the time of the first temple every
Jewish home was a Monte Carious regards

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

the new wheat fully three months to mature before
