THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE-SATURDAY MORNING. OCTOBER 20, 1894.
MINE, MILL AND RAILROAD.
Ex-United States Senator Henry O.
Davis, president of the West Virginia
Central railroad, has sent out an inter
esting statement relating to the duty on
coal. Senator Davis says: "Mr. Wil
son states that the cost of coal in his
district is from 40 to 60 cents a ton, ami
argues from this that the duty of 75
cents is exceslve. The amount per ton
which he gives covers merely the cost
of the wages of the miners. He takc3
no acount of the cost of transferring to
the railway cars, timbering the mines,
maintaining the machinery and the
numerous items of expense Incidental
to a mining plant, besides which there
is a royalty and interest on the capital
invested. Dut even if Mr. Wilson had
lirought these Items intohis cost of pro
duction it would be manifestly unjust
to stop nt this stage o coal's progress
to a point where It would he made as
full. Surely it Is not at the mouth of
the mine where American coal has to
compete with foreign coal, but at the
seaboard and at places of consumption.
That which was worth but little in the
ground and of small value at the
mouth of the mine has been greatly en
hanced by the labor of transportation
when it has gone hundreds of miles by
land and water to a point where It must
come Into competition with the coals of
other countries (Nova Scotia for in
stance). If the value of the coal ought
to be estimated at the mine In finding
the ad valorem duty, then the whole
basis of the valuation of the dutiable
list as prepared by the government is
"Mr. Wilson Is also quoted as saying
'that the duty on coal is In the nature
of u subsidy to the railroads.' Such a
statement is unjust and reflects injur
iously upon an interest absolutely es
sential to the development of his state
and country. The average haul to tide
water from the coal fields of West Vir
ginia, Maryland and Virginia is about
ISO miles, while the average freight Is
4 mills per ton per mile, which leaves
little or no margin over cost. It Is only
necessary to call the people's attention
to the fact that one-fourth of the rail
roads of the country ure in the hands of
receivers, while from not one-half of
these said railroads are the stockhold
ers receiving any returns 'from the
many millions they have Invested in
railways The Democrats announce
themselves for 'tariff for revenue;' then
why not make coal a part of it? Coat
should not be classed as raw material.
Jn the mines it has very little value,
from 5 cents to 20 cents a ton de.
pending upon its quality and locality,
it Boston, which is a central point of
New England for the delivery of coal
from Virginia, West Vrglnla. Mary
land and Pennsylvania, it la worth
13.50 per ton, which shows fully !I5 per
cent of its value when it reaches the
consumer Is the labor of production
and transportation. Tt is entirely con
sumed In using, while other articles,
called by some as raw material, upon
arriving at the factory are often In the
llrst state of manufacture; one is de
Btroyed, while the other is being put in
a permanent form of usefulness. There
is no demand from our people for free
coal, and no person or corporation or
Interest has asked It."
Unless the anthracite coal producing
companies make a more radical reduc
tion in the output the remainder of the
month, the October allotment as de
cided upon, which was for 3,000,000 tons,
will, In the opinion of the Stockholder,
be largely exceeded. For the week
ended Oct. 6 shipments amounted to
754,707 tons, while the statement' of
shipments for the second week ended
Oct. 1.1, which has Just been issued, ex
ceeded those figures, the total being
806,181 tons. For two weeks, then, the
shipments aggregate 1,560,888 tons, or
an average for the thirteen days of 120,
053 tons per day. At this rate the ship
ments for the month would reach a
total of 3,721,643 tons, or 721,643 tons
more than the allotment. Had the cool
weather of last week continued It is
probable this excess would have
made no material difference to the
trade, but pleasanter and milder
weather has again checked the con
sumptive demand. Comparing the two
statements, we find that in the Wyo
ming region only were the shipments
less in the second week than in the first
the figures being 423,748 for the first
week and 408,021 for the second week,
while the shipments from the Lehigh
region Increased from 124,351 tons to
137,344 tons, and from the Schuylkill
region from 208,608 tons to 265,816 tons,
thus making the second week's Increase
over the first week 61,474 tons. Com
pared with the corresponding week last
year, however, there is a decrease of
107,816 tons, making the decrease for
the year to date 2,033,164 tons.

Hastings held a similar position.
Commercial telegraph work formerly

effect that City Treasurer George D,
MeCreary, of Philadelphia, had been
favorably considered for the presidency
of the Lehigh Coal and Navigation com
pany, to succeed the late K. 15. Lelsen

ed at the next meeting of the board.
When asked as to the truth of the re
port, Mr. MeCreary said: "I know
nothing whatever ubout the matter. I
have not been approached, either di
rectly or Indirectly, by cither an ofllclal
or a stockholder of the company."
STOCKS AND liOXDS.
By the United Press.
New York. Oct. 19. Speculation at
the Stock Exchange was more active
today, the result of efforts on the part
of the bears to cover short contracts.
The opening was firm, notwithstanding
the engagement of $500,000 gold for ship
ment tomorrow. The hammering pro
cess had no influence on the general list
which held firm throughout. In the last
hour the covering movement assumed
large proportions. The strength of the
market in the last hour of business was
partially due to the weaker condition of
the Bterllng exchanges. Stocks closed
firm at 1 to per cent higher. Total
sales were 16.',Q00 shares.

tive stocks of the New York market are

APPEAL TO SCHISMATICS.
Pustorol Address to the Members of the
Evangelical Association of This Purt of
The following pastoral address hns
been issued to the members of the Kvan
gellcal association of this part of Penn
sylvania concerning the troubles that
have recently arisen In that church:
"To those of the Evangelical associ
ation, scattered throughout the bounds
of the East Pa. conference, who have
been associated with the so-called "mi
nority movement," but whose sincere
and evident purpose it has been
hroughout to remain In the denomina
tion in the name of our blessed Lord,
"In addressing you it is not our pur
pose to enumerate the causes which
have led to the present state of affairs,
nor io review the history of recent years,
excepting briefly In so far as is neces
sary to state clearly the attitude of the
church towards you.
"In IS'Jl, ut its nineteenth quadren
nial session in Indlnnapolls, Ind., the
genernl conference decided the ques
tions at Issue in the church, and being
its 'Supreme Court of Law' the de
cision was final so far ns the church it
self was concerned. But the question
was at once raised as to which was the
true nnd lawful general conference.
Then followed the appeal to the civil
courts and the tedious process of liti
gation, during which time you remained
with the churches in the control of the
so called 'minority waiting for the
final settlement of the question as to
which was the rightful government in
the church. Thu great majority of the
annual conferences.as well as that of
the ministry and membcrshlp.together
wUh the overwhelming voice of the
general conference had spoken. AVe
think that Bhould have been sufllcient.
The Church Has Waited.
"Although you have in the meantime
not been uctively identilied with the
regular organization of the church, yet
accrediting you with honest though
mistaken motives the church has waited
for the time when the determination
of the rightful organization should be
so clear and overwhelming as to leave
no reasonable doubt in your mind.
That time has coine. You said you were
waiting for the decisive day when the
civil courts would speak. That day
has dawned. The voice of the civil
courts has uniformly upheld the regu
larity of the general conference Itself
and the legality of Its proceedings. The
highest legislative and Judicial au
thority of the church and the supreme
tribunals of the vniious states have
spoken and their conclusion is one.
This concensus of opinion is highly im
pressive and leaves no reasonable cause
for further hesitation.
"Can you hesitate any longer? In
addressing you we assume that you still
love the evangelical association, that
her past is n precious legacy and her
future a cherished hope. We further
assume that you respect the laws of
your country and hold In veneration the
decisions of its highest courts, and that
therefore when the church which you
love has, through Its lawful general con
ference, spoken and when the civil
courts, which you honor, have vindi
cated its authority and re-enforced Its
conclusions, and when, moreover, the
voice of the Shepherd is heard through
out the church calling upon you, not
withstanding the past, to remain with
in the fold, can you longer hesitate?
Why Withdraw from the Fold.
"Believing It to be true what you have
frequently said, namely, that you are
satisfied with the doctrines and dis
cipllne of the church, we ask. Why
withdraw from Its fold and drift Into
an unknown and perilous future? Is
this the day for , the organization of
new denominations? Is not the Ijest
thought of Christendom opposed to it?
And is It not true that every schismatic
movement which has not had for its
basis some conscientious change In
fundamental doctrine or polity has
ended in disaster? And Is It right to
multiply churches, especially In com'
munities where they will only stand as
a monument of schism and therefore
of reproach, and where the churches al
ready in existence are not adequately
supported'.' We leave these questions
with you In the kindliest spirit and In
the hope that you appreciate their sa
"You have been told by those to
whose personal interest it Is to lead you
away from the church Into a denomlna
tlon of of their own formation, that the
church authorities care only to secure
the church property, and are uncon
cerned about the membership; that
our purpose is to turn certain portions
of congregations out of the churches
and certain others in. Nothing can
be farther from the truth. The only
purpose of the church throughout this
entire controversy has been to perpetu
ate its own life, to maintain Intact its
organization, to keep all the congrega
tlons nnd churches In organic connec
tion. Briefly stated, the purpose Is to
place the authorized pastors into tie
pulpits and to retain a vital and normal
relation between the congregations and
the church at large. This is absolutely
essential to the life ol the church
as well as of the congregations, and
that It Is necessary to secure and main'
tain the required unanmlty In doctrine,
life, and worship, needs no argument.
This Is more particularly true where the
associated form of government and the
Itinerant ministry exist.
Voice Sentiments of the Church.
"We desire to say to you, therefore,
that in placing the properly authorized
pastors in the various pulpits and In
restoring a normal status In the con
gregations, not one among you who de
sires to remain In the church with us,
and who sincerely subscribes to Its doc-
trines.submits to its order and uiselp
line, nnd accepts tho conclusions of the
general conference, held at Indianap
olis, Ind., in 1801, will be barred out,
but on the contrary your membership
with all Its rights, privileges, and obli
gations will be sacredly regarded. We
speak in the name of East Pennsylvania
Conference of Evangelical Association
and voice the sentiment cf the church
"Do not allow yourselves, because of
any personal preference or prejudice, to
become permanently alienated In your
affections and attachment from the
church we all have reason to love so
much. We entreat you In the sacred
name of our Lord to worship in the
church at whose altars you were saved,
under whose ministrations you were
edllled In Christ Jesus, and whose hlS'
tory and spirit we all hold In Kuch hon
ored and hallowed memory. our pre
sent and eternal welfare Is our highest
concern, and that none of those whom
God has given as a heritage to the
Evangelical association should bo lqst
either to the church or to her divine
Lord, our highest purpose.
