THE SCEANT02T TRIBUNE FBI DAT MOKHTNO, OCTOBER 19, 1594.
Industrial and, Commercial.
3IIXE, MILL AND RAILROAD.
The Heading company's recent ex
periment In washing its culm banks
Beems, according to the Shamokln Dis
patch, to have proved a success as the
washerles already erected are workliiR
steadily, turning out large quantities of
excellent coal while new plants are be
ginning to bub up with surprising
quickness In places where the company
owns culm banks which were hereto
fore thought to be wholly useless. It is,
therefore, safe to say that it will not be
long until the culm wasdiery takes a
prominent place among the industries
of the country, for a time at least.
Much advance has been made in the
transportation of perishable articles by
rail, but in no respect more than In
shipments of fruits nnd vegetables in
winter weather. Shippers and agents
concur In the statement that danger in
transportation by freezing has been
practically eliminated in the shipment
of produce by modem methods. Tht
lined car now sutllces in the cool
weather of spring and fall, and usually
during the winter, while in extreme
weather the Eastman heater car is
brought into use. It is stated that a
carload of potatoes or apples will with,
stand a lower temperature when the
car is In motion than when ut rest.
Says Saward: "Viewed from the
standpoint of the producer there is a
tone of better trade conditions so far
as the anthracite coal business is con
cerned. The restriction of the output
Js tending toward a strengthening of
tho price list recently agreed upon for
this coal at all points. It is evident,
therefore, that the very wise conclusion
come to in regard to keeping the sup
ply within the demand is the proper
biisls upon which to regulate this im
portant trade. It npears that all are
acting in unison upon this matter, and
the returns prove conclusively that the
producers are once more the masters
if the situation. With the ability to
do so, it sometimes appears strange
that It is not always so maintained,
but there are times when the desire to
make a tonage record for some purpose
or other outweighs the possibility of
securing a price for the commodity
that is in keeping with its Intrinsic
value. Perchance this was the ciw
during the months of June and July,
and one may readily see from the aver
age price realized whether it was a wise
course to adopt.
"In the northwest there is a change
for the better in trade conditions; an
thracite is moving in that territory
Vith something of its old-time vim.
Local deliveries are maintained In good
volume, and a decidedly active demand
Js in progress from the country. On
the Chicago market also there Is a
steadier tone as the season approaches
its close. Such, indeed, Is the situation
in anthracite after fourteen days test
cf the market since the advance, and It
will be the fault of the producers'
ugents themselves If they do not hold
prices steady on all new business. On
the New York market there is a firmer
feeling to the anthracite trade, but it
cannot be said to have any of that
October snap to it which is usually the
case at this season of the year. There
Is a good amount of coal on orders out
side of the city, but it is evident that
the retailers have supplies which they
must get rid of before there is any
great demand upon the wholesalers;
some of the special coals are scarce
puch as red ash und egg and smaller
steam sizes. The market is one de
pendent upon climatic changes, and the
cooler tinge Is making the Philadelphia
trade slightly more active than it wns;
prices are firmer for all sizes of anthra
cite for the line and city trade, al
though not yet up to the list price."
Watson Moore, who Is in charge of n
lokie at the Yorktown colliery, has mi
equal as an ingenious mechanic on tin
South Side, says the Hazleton standard,
and the position he holds is far be
neath his qualifications. Mr. Moore
takes special delight in constructing
miniature engines, of which he has a
half dozen at his home. His most per
fect achievement In this line is a half
horse power stationary engine with a
boiler and all modern appliances at
tached. The engine is run by steam and
performs the work for which It was
designed, that of propelling a small
lathe, in a satisfactory manner. It Is
chiefly constructed of brass and every
piece of machinery Is of such a delicate
Jtnish and so ingeniously contrived that
u. person would consider it almost im
posible for any man to complete under
Mr. Eastwlck, of the firm of Eastwlck
Harrison, of Shamokln, was the en
gineer on the locomotive "North Star,"
which pulled the first train of cars and
passengers Into Sunbury in the early
part of June, 1838 nearly sixty years
ago. The locomotive .was built In
Philadelphia by Mr. Eastwlck and
'hipped to Sunbury by canal. At Sun
bury It was unloaded, put together and
hauled to Shamokln by horsepower,
where It was fitted up for running. The
day the trial trip was to be made was a
ftreat day for Shamokln, and, in fact,
lor all the people along the entire route
to Sunbury. The town was thronged
with folks from all parts anxious to
get a look at the wonderful machine.
Representatives of the Trunk line and
Western passenger association huve
made some progress In the direction of
a settlement of existing differences, and
a committee has been appointed to con
sider the question nnd make an adjust
ment. For the present, the business
connected with the two associations
will be conducted as formerly, and no
Jiew difficulties are expected to develop.
The existing troubles may be staled as
follows: The Trunk line association ob
jected to theencrduchments of the West
ern Passenger association in the mat
ter of immigrant business and claimed
that the Western peopledemanded more
than they were entitled to. Tho western
roads have also been selling tickets
direct to immigrants, under which
the Trunk line received no credit for
that part of the business over their
lines. Another conference will be held
two weeks hence, when all differences
will doubtless be settled. The managers
fully realize the necessity of obtaining
full schedule rates wherever possible, and
is operating expenses have been reduced
about as low as possible, an earnest
effort will be made to Increase income
by bringing about an advance In rates
wherever possible. The passenger bus
iness Is of secondary considratlon, as
the principal revenue is derived from
J EASILY LOST
MGAMDBYUSE or mi
im ri mil
freight. The action of the Trunk line's
otllclals in agreeing to restore rates on
west-bound freight through the Missis
sippi river gateways to regular tariff
figures on Dec. 1, is a step in the right
direction, but what is called for is close
adherence to the terms of such agree
ment Promises to maintain rates are of
no value without some regulations by
which they can be enforced.
An innovation which Is greatly
appreciated by hurried business men
and others who wish to travel with
speed and comfort is the fast flyer on
tho Jersey Central railroad which leaves
Scranton at 12.50 noon and arrives in
New York at 6 o'clock in the evening
and Philadelphia at 6.40. The train Is
one of the fastest In this section of the
country and will not vary in its regu
larity of time. It will be fully equipped
in all its appointments nnd Pullman
service and will only make such im
portant stops as Wilkes-Barre, White
Haven, Easton, Bethlehem, Reading,
Harrisburg, etc. ,
The United States grand jury
at Pittsburg found a true bill against
Division Freight Agent Means of the
Pittsburg, Cincinnati, Chicago and St,
Louis railway for violation of the inter
state commerce law. Mr. Means is ac
cused of makes rates on freight from
Cincinnati to Pittsburg which were
less than the schedule rates. The trial
of tho case against the officials on the
same charge was postponed until to
day. ' At last the much-tnlked-of silk mill
at Tresckow Is assured. Work will be be
gun In a short time, so tin; directors say,
in order to have the mill ready for oper
ation by May 1, 18!i:. The Institution
will employ about 150 hands, nearly all

The work of laying the brnnches ot
the Ulg Four with steel rails Is now
completed. The rail used was the light
rail taken up on the mnin line, most ot
It sixty pounds to the yard, and none ot
it badly worn.
The Pennsylvania lines west of Pitts
burg last week handled the largest east
nnd west bound tonnage of any week
r.ince September, 1892. The Panhandle
freight officials have seemingly
aroused from their lethargy, and last
iveek took out of Chicago 7,620 tons ot
freight more than either of the othel
lines, and nearly as much as any two
of the ten lines.
General Manager Henderson, of the
Reading Coal and Iron company, has
returned from a two weeks' trip
through the west, where he visited, ah
he company's agencies, and found
Ihcm to be in good condition. lie Is of
the opinion that there will soon be a

have been for some time.

New York, Oct. 18. At the Stock Ex
change today only 125,000 shares were
traded In and of this total, American
mgar, general electric, St. Paul and
Chicago gas figured for 92.G00 shares.
Speculation outside of the Issues named
was devoid of feature, and bulls and
bears alike were bemoaning the narrow
ness of the market. The features of
today's limited speculation were Amer
ican sugar and general electric. The
first named advanced to 87; fell 85"s
and rose to 87. General electric was
heavy throughout and broke from 3
