T1TE SCRANTON TRIBUNE -SATURDAY MORNING. OCTOBER 1?, 1891.
Industrial and Commercial.
In Its review of the weekly statement
of production the Philadelphia Dally
Stockholder Bays: " The anthracite coal
producing companies of the Wyoming,
, the Lehigh and Schuylkill regions have
started off the month of October ylth
the firm determination not to exceed
the allotment In output. The figures
lor the nrst week of the month are.
therefore, of unusual interest. They
show a slight excess in average, and if
continued the remainder of the month
the excess above the amount decided
upon would be nearly 300,000 tons. Ship
ments for the week, which aggregate
754,707 tons, decreased no less than 250,-
OaS tons, nearly one-half of which was
contributed by the Schuylkill region
The Reading, however, has a peculiarly
happy faculty of catching up at the end
of the month, so that the decrease of
107,28$ tons has no special significance,
except to indicate the willingness of the
company to abide by the determination
to restrict the output to the estimated
requirements of the market. The point
has been made that, no matter how dull
the coal trade may be, so long as there
Is a tonnage movement, the carriers will
not suffer. This is erroneous. The
freight weight is based upon the selling
price of coal, being 40 per cent, thereof.
A year ago when coal was selling on a
basis of $4.25 the freight was $1.70 per
ton. On a basis of $325 the freight rate
is $1.30 per ton, the difference of 40 cents
being the loss to the carriers. A practi
cal application, made on the September
tonnage, was not far from 3 1-3 million
tons. The loss through a reduction
would amount to 1 1-3 million dollars.
In many cases the carrier was the
miner. This, however, does not alter
the case in the least."
Saward finds Htle evidence of change
Jn the anthracite situation. He thinks
the outlook "is fair for all grades. The
anthracite producers are keeping the
tonnage down to a very moderate one,
and in this they are acting wisely, for
the demand does not keep pace with the
productive capacity, as is well known,
and, therefore, there is the necessity for
a proper supervision of this feature in
order that the market price of the com
modity may be a remunerative one. At
present the agreement for the month of
October Is being adhered to, and there
is nothing to warrant any other view
being taken of the situation except one
that is of good for the trade at large.
It is of not the remotest value to anyone
In the trade to have fluctuating prices
for a commodity of such intrinsic merit
as Is anthracite. An effort to secure
further tonnage by increasing the area
of consumption under a less rate of
transportation on lines not usually
classed as coal carriers should be made
before the active business of another
season Is entered upon. At New York
there is a better feeling In the anthra
cite trade circles and the market is for
the first time in many weeks in the
hands of the producers; they have very
wisely put the output In such shape as
to guarantee the maintenance of the
list which they have agreed means the
market price of coal; not the circular
rate, but a rate at which sales are made.
In this they are acting a very wise
part and It Is so much different from
what has heretofore been the rule that
the dealers and buyers are taking some
what of courage as to the future of
trade conditions. We can see no reason
for their not doing so. In soft coal
circles In the New York market there
is plenty of talk of cheap coal, and one
hears of prices which seem to 'distance
all competition," they are so low, and
yet at the same time there are quota
tions for the better grades of coal that
are up to the list price or nearly so.
It Is the same story the better coals
bring the prlce.whlle the Inferior grades
run as near thereto as the ingenuity of
the seller can reach."
The itinerary of President George
B. Roberts and those who will accom
pany him on the annual inspection of
the Pennsylvania railroad systems is
as follows: Monday, Oct. 15, leave
Philadelphia for Altoona; 1C, Altoona
to Pittsburg; 17, inspection of lines
about Pittsburg; 18, Pittsburg to Cin
cinnati; 19, Cincinnati to Louisville; 20,
LoulBvllle to St. Louis, via Indianap
olis; 21, at St. Louis inspecting termi
nals, etc.; night of Oct. 21, St. Louis to
Chicago; 22, at Chicago; 23, Chicago to
Cleveland, via Alliance; 24, Cleveland
to Ashtabula, thence to Erie, via Law
rence Junction; 25, Erie 'to Buffalo; 2G,
Buffalo to Williamsport, via Larabee,
Clermont and Johnsonburg; 27, Will
iamsport to Philadelphia, leaving the
former city at 8.30 a. m. The distance
t I travelled aggregates 2,655 miles.
' The Iron Age reports of the Iron trade
show an increase of one furnace In
blast on Oct. 1, as compared with Sept.
1, and an Increase in the weekly capac
ity of 8,616 tons. The weekly capacity
of 171 furnaces in blast on Sept. 1 was
151.V3 tons, and the weekly capacity of
172 furnaces in blast on Oct. 1 was 159,
729 tons. This output compares with
115,356 tons on Aug. 1 and 62,517 tons
on June 1, which was the minimum for
years. The apparent consumption of
iron in September was some 50,000 tons
more than the production, but it is
known that the ordinary figures are
sometimes misleading. In the present
Instance the Increased production has
brought about violent competition
which is almost as damaging as stag
nation. The price of iron has fallen re
cently and many concerns are work
ing at a loss. The Iron Age expresses
the opinion that the maximum of pro
duction has been reached for the pres
ent. The first engine and train was run
over Vanwlckle's new Beaver Meadow
railroad on Thursday last. The road
connects with the Jersey Central near
Silver Brook, and it was one of the lat
ter company's engines that made the
trip. The opening up of this branch
means a large Increase In coal tonnage
for the Jersey Central road, as it will
receive much of the patronage of the
different collieries in the Beaver
Meadow district. f
The Philadelphia and Reading Rail
road company reports the coal trans
ported over its lines for week ending
Oct. 6, as follows:

meeting of that body since last July,
and many differences originated, which
up to this time, have not been settled.

Commissioner Farmer, of the Trunk
Line association, has appointed Oct

held in New York.
The Oneida breaker started upon full
time Thursday and expects to hoist at
least 900 cars per day. This will be the
nrst time the breaker has ever run to
its full capacity, as only one side has
been running since the colliery started
about three years ago.
New Haven papers state that Septem
ber was one of the best months In the
history of the New York, New Haven
and Hartford, a large Increase in both
through passenger and freight busl
ness being shown as a result of recent
traffic alliances formed with roads west
of New York.
An Inadequate water supply at the
Coleralne breaker for washing purposes
necessitates the construction of an ad

as the most desirable, and a Janesville
pump will be put in position at an early

Beginning with next week it is ex
pected that at least five days per week
will be worked at the Coleralne colliery.
When the connections will have been
completed with the "Pennsy," It Is evi

and even additional time. The stripping
output Is dally Increasing, admitting of
the employment of more men. All the
suspended men will be restored Immedi
ately. One of the Erie managers says: "It
may be that the Improvement In gen
eral business is small, but the Improve

Our business between Salamanca and
Chicago is larger than it has been at
any time for three years. The only

A fund of $20,000 will be subscribed
by more than 1,000 persons in Pitts
burg, with which to make test suits
against the Duquesne Traction com
pany. The people are afraid of the rap
idly moving cars, and want them
slowed down. An effort will be made
to ascertain whether a street car com
pany has the right to collect fares from
passengers who are obliged to stand In
the over-crowded cars.
The new addition to No. 2 Silver
Brook breaker is equipped with every
known modern appliance arranged pur
posely to receive the output from No. 1
slope and the adjoining stripping, but
the development Is balked by a volumi
nous obstacle. The officials find It im
possible to run the new addition with
the present supply of steam and It will
remain idle, consequently, until a few
sets of boilers are fitted up. No. 1 may
not be closed until after the new year.
STOCKS AXD BOXDS.
New York, Oct. 12. The transactions
at the 'Stock exchange today were
smaller than on any previous day, for
week and footed up only 145,846 shares,
of which 60,600 were sugar. This stock
was strong in the early dealings on
covering of short contracts and sold up
2Vs Per cent, to 85. The advance
caused Realizations, notwithstanding
vague rumors five refiners intended to
resume operations at an early date.
Chicago Gas was in demand at the
start, rising about 1 per cent, to 75.
The railway list was also better sup
ported and the weaker condition of
sterling exchange averting gold ship
ment had a good effect. The small
shorts were trying to cover in various
parts of the list, but as the floating
supply of stocks Is light they met with
poor success. Leading issues com
mand a premium for use, and this
adds to their nervousness. Again there
was the intimation of a campaign
against the bears before election,
and this Is also keeping the shorts on
the anxious seat. The improvement
In prices at one time amounted to Ua
per cent., and was most marked In
the grangers, Louisville and Nashville,
Western Union and General Electric.
In the afternoon when Sugar fell Vk
to 84 the list ran of fractionally, but
closed firm. Net changes show advance
of to per cent., Burlington and
Qulncy leading. '
The range of today's prices or the ac
tive stocks of the New York market are
given below. The quotations are furnished

PHEASANTS ARE FEW.
The I'tlliatlon of Their Kggs in Chemis
try Explains Why.
Local huntsmen report a great scarc
ity of pheasants this year. One gen
tleman who recently scoured the Moosic
mountains in quest of this fascinating
game returned home yesterday with an
empty game sack, for the nrst time in
It IS said the reason for this scarcity
Is the fact that pheasants' eggs have
been In great demand recently for
chemical purposes, the ' albumen in
them being highly prized In connection
with a dltllcult grade of photographic
work. One Btroudsburg man operated
near Scranton all summer with a force
of boys and dogs, gathering these eggs.
He collected 10,000 of them during the
months of June and July.
