TILE SCEANTON TKIBTOE-MONDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 24, 1894.
The snccesslon to the lato E. B. Lels
onring iu tho presidency of the Lehigh
Coal nud NavijruUon company is re
ceiving disousBiou. Mr. Leiaonring, it
will be recalled, auccesded Joseph a.
Karris, now president of the Reading.
J lie vncaney natnrnlly suggests
thonchts as to who wilt be e ailed upon
to till it. The board of managers of
ilia company comprises Elward W,
Clark, Francis R. C'dp, Charles Par
rish, James M. Wiloox, Edward N.
Lp wis, Snaiaol Dickson, Thomas Mo
Keau, Edward S. Buckley, Abram S.
Hewitt and Chnrlotiianeo Tower, jr.,
nud it is probable that one of these will
te -elected to the presidency. The
l'liiludflphia Stockholder intlmatts
that "possibly, however. Mr. Harris,
who is understood to be physically
breaking dowu under the groat burdens
that devolve upon the Reading's chief
executive, may be induced to return to
l-i is old post."
The Philadelphia Inquirer takes this
view of the anthrauito situation "The
only question in the anthracite coal
trade now is whether next yenr's busi
ness can be saved; this year's trade is
irretrievably ruined. In the month of
October, November and Deoomber the
iiirlcat will probably require less than
10,0i0. WO tons. Thcro is now above
vroiind fit various stocking points fully
8,0U0,WI0 tons and after allowing for a
fair working stock to be carried over
the utmost that need he mined in the
l ist quarter of the year is 8, 000,000 tons.
In the same months last year 11,807,000
tons were produced- To get the (rule
into good shape at the end of the year
would require pertinent and regular
restriction to tht extont of 3IS per cent,
of last years product, a desirable con
iliiion that is by no means likely to be
brought about. There is a strong pros
pect, therefore, that next spring will
open with enormous stocks of eoal on
band and with prioes fully as low as
those now ruling."
The Inquirer is probably a shads too
1,'lootuy. The present disposition of
tlio leading faetnrs in the trade is
favorable to resolute and honest en
tailment pending the wiping ont of ac
cumulated stocks, while a break may
occur a,'iit) ai it baa often occurred in
the pmt, it is believed that the self
interest of the large coal and carrier
companies will prevent a eontinuance
of the "road to ruin" policy of the pait
low months. Tho fact tha't these com
panies are beginning to see the facts as
tliey are is a hopeful angury,
"There is a disposition'says Saward,
"on the part of some of the producers
of anthracite to befog the vital ques
tion with outside issues as to the pro
per percentages of this or that inter
est; they will talk about sneh matters
when the main issue is and must be,
bow are they to widen the area of the
consumption of this fuel for domestic
purposes? The insanity of certain of
the leaders of opinion on the matter of
a demand from former soft coal nsers,
ftureiy is responsible in a large degree
for the utterly depressed condition of
this trade at the present time. Events
prove what anyone well acquainted
with the trade might have known they
vAild prove, that there was but very
mmtm in all the gossip as to a shortage
of fuel that eould only be filled by
shipping anthracite. The tonnage had
been kept fairly well in hand up to the
t of Jnne and there seemed a possi
bility of getting the schedule price,
but with the immense tonnage done in
June and July this possibility ceased to
exist, and the effort to stem the tide by
issuing a price-list was as futile aa it
was absurd in the conditions then en
vironing the trade."
The No. 1 breaker at Silver Brook
will be abandoned after Oot. 1. It is
almost a year ago since the main slope
was condemned, but since that time
the colliery has been proparing equally
as much ooal as when the mines were
in full swing. This coal is said to be
of the finest quality that enters the
anthracite market, and has been mined
from s trippings of capacious depth as
weljTag tho No. 5 slope, wbion daily
.rfiucea almost 100 cars. However,
the indefinite snpension, of this col
liery will have little effect on the em
ployes. It it the aim of the company
to transmit all the coal that has been
Torinerly prepared at this colliery to
No. 2 by route of a hw lokie road
which is being built between the two
collieries to forma connecting link.
Tbis intimates that No. 2 colliery
will have to prepare 200 oars a day
more than was ite usual eustom. This
will be accomplished by the new pon
derous addition to the breaker, with
its expedient mechanical devices being
put in operation . The breaker is now
double its original size, and a trip
through it, says the Huzletou Stand
ard, would convince the best expert
that the mechanical equipments are up
to perfection, but for it to prepare
satisfactorily all the coal mined in all
the strippings and slopes remains to be
axen. There will be scarcely any men
thrown ont of employment, The em-
oyes on and about No. 1 will be re-
