THE BIG WHITNEY SYNDICATE

It Can Radily Cut Into Our
The commercial editor cf the Balti
more American, William M. Byrne, was
recently commissioned ly that enter
prising newspuper to make a thorough
Investigation of the bituminous coal
mining industry, present and prospec
tive in Nova Scotia, especially bearing
in mind the possibility of its compe
ting with the coal industry of Pennsyl
vania, Maryland and the Virginias.
In a letter dated at Sydney, Cape Bre
ton, Mr. Byrne writes: "The most for
midable competitor of the Ueorges
.'reek. Elk Garden, I'ocahontas and
Clearfield coal regions of the United
States is undoubtedly the Dominion
Coal company (Limited), of Cape Bre
ton, especially since the mines it con
trols passed Into the possession of the
syndicate of American and Canadian
owners led by Henry M. Whitney, of
Boston, brother of the ex-Secretary of
the Navy, William C. Whitney. This
combine and their friends are pushing
their trade with the coast cities of the
United States, and they tried hard to
necure the admission of their coal into
the manufacturing districts of the
Vnlted States free of duty. They have
been shipping it in limited quantities,
tu be sure down the coast as far as
Boston and paying a duty of 75 cents
11 ton; and it would be only fair to sup
pose they will largely Increase such
sales now that the duty is only 40
cents a ton.
Can Compete Even Now.
Thev have here an enormous field
of bituminous or soft coal suitable for
mnklnir iras. coke and generating steam
for mills, railroads and marine boilers
as well as for domestic use
iiK grates and stoves With good
harbors sheltered, having deep water,
their own railroads leading to
mines, all of which are within
forty miles of their piers, and a large
fleet of steam vessels the coal produc
ers, miners, railroads and vessel owners
of the coal regions like Cumberland,
Klk Oarden and Pocahontas must here
after take this region into very serious
consideration as'a competitor, for there
Is no doubt In the world that the users
of coal will not fail to consider the or
fers from a new tleld that was almost
able to compete at 75 cents a ton duty
to their disadvantage when It has been
reduced to 40 cents.
It is very remarkable -that the coal
men of this region do not speak of the
consumer paying the duty. They say
they pay the duty of 40 cents of
cents, Just as Senator Camden says
that the Monongah mines, near Fair
mont. W. Va.. pay the CO cents duty
charged by Canada upon the conl he
aends into the Dominion across Lake
The Uiunt of Them All.
The Dominion Coal company (Limit
ed) was Incorporated by act of the legls
lature of Nova Scotia on Feb. 1, 1XH3,
with an authorized capital of $18,000,000,
of which $16,500,000 common, and $1,500,
000 preferred have been issued. The
authorized bonded indebtedness Is $3,
OoO.UOO first mortgage bonds, bearing
nix per cent., and $1,500,000 have been
issued. The president is Henry Al,
Whitnev, of 95 Milk street, Boston, and
he Is abrother of Hon. William C. Whit
ney, late secretary of the navy. The
Canadian office Is at Glace Bay, Cape
Breton. Nova Scotia. David McKeen,
member of Parliament, Is resident man
ager. Messrs. Kingman, Brown & Co.,
14 Place Royale, Montreal, and M. 11.
Morrow, Bo Bedford Kow, Halifax, are
the Canadian selling agents.
The company was formed to carry on
the business of mining, transporting
find selling bituminous coal from Cape
Breton, Nova Scotia. It operates und
t-r a lease which gives a tenure of its
mining property of ninety-nine years,
the royalty to the Nova Scotia govern
ment for the whole period being fixed
at a maximum of twelve and a half
cents per ton, with a minimum gross
itmount for each year to be paid on at
least as many tons as were sold In ISM
from all the mines owned by the com
Ip to the first of March, lSIU, the
company had acquired an area of some
seventy square miles of coal lands in
Cape Breton, upon which are located
the following collieries: Caledonia
(formerly the property of the Caledonia
Coal and Railway company. Limited)
International (formerly owned by the
International Coal company, Limited)
Gardiner (formerly owned by Burchell
Bros., Sydney); ..Glace Bay (formerly

Cow Bay to Sydney Harbor along the
northeastern end of Cape Breton.

The compuny was organized on Feb
ruary 16, 183. Since then all the prop.
rties then held under option have been
acquired and paid for In full. The re

pended in the construction of the rail'
road being built to Louisburg; about
$150,000 for discharging plants and for
mining machinery, and about $100,000

Long Noted For ItsCoal.
While the development of the mining
of coal has progressed wonderfully in
xsova wcolla since the Investment of
the Whitney Syndicate In Its mines, this
province has long been famous for the
immense amount of coal it contained.
Judge Hallburton (Sam Slick), in his
nlbtory of Nova Scotia, published In
1829, speaks of u colliery opened that
year In thePictou district, called the Al
bion colliery. Coal was also mined In
Cape Hreton Island, on the north side
of the present Spanish river, the loca
tion of the presentSydney mines, by the
government of Cape Hreton In 1784. In
the year ending Sept. 30, 1804, the mines
of Nova Scotln produced 429,351 tons,
of which the Sydney, Llngan and Al
bion mines contributed 314,355 tons
John . Rutherford, ..of Stellarton, says
that In 1865 thirty-nine mines produced
In Nova Scotia and Cape Breton 712,574
tons of coal; that in 1875 these mines In
creased their output only 68,591 tons.
In 1885 twenty-Beven mines produced
1,352,203 tons, or an increase of 73 per
cent, over the output In 1875. In the
next five years the Increase at the end
of the period vs 631,798 tons, the total
production being 1,984,000 tons. In 1865
the saleB for home consumption were
59,536 tons; for neighboring colonies,
52,561 tons, and for other countries,
838,756 tons. In 1885 they were: For
home consumption, 444,652 tons, and
for neighboring colonies, 769,613 totis,
and for other countries, 40,215 tons.
The sales to other countries were prin
cipally to the United States, and they
had rapidly Increased under the opera
tions of reciprocity treaty. In 1875 there
was a marked falling off In shipments
to the United States, caused by the ex-
tions of reciprocity laws. In 1875 there
the Imposition of a duty of $1.25 a ton
on all bituminous coal entering the
United States, so that shipments to the
states fell off heavily, while the sales
to neighboring colonies were Increased
by the extending of the Inter-colonlal
railway from Truro east to some of the
mining localities In Nova Scotia. The
sales to the states decreased 89,746 tons
In 1875 to 25,431 tons In 1891.

From the Allentown Chronicle. .
A new contribution to the road ques
tion comes from a civil enginer of Pitts
burg. He calculates that to provide the
good roads, macademlzed and telford,
that the people talk ebout for the
United States would cost at least $7,
560,000,000, or about $120 per capita for
all the people of the United States. He
further shows that In many regions of
Immense area, the stone road would be
Impossible, as the hauling of the stone
to it would wear out more than the
load would make. In fact, he thinks
there are not enough of available road
making stone in the United States to
accomplish the task.
Aside from this, he believes that the
stone road is behind the age. Superior
as it Is to the common dirt road, It is
almost as far behind the iron track as
the dirt road Is behind it. He says the
railway, street car track and the tram
way all point the way of the future
road. The track for the wheel must
be of Iron. it, Is the only, material that
is unyielding to the wheel and smooth.
He advocates the laying of iron beams
