. THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE MONDAY MORNING. OCTOBER 22, 1894.
, MINE, MILL AND RAILROAD.
The street car fender problem has
been vexing the spirit of the city au
thorities of Baltimore, Md., and they
have finally turned for relief to one of
their most distinguished fellow cltl
rens, Mendes Cohen, who has been chief
engineer of the Baltimore and Ohio
railroad and president of the Ameri
can Society of Civil Engineers, besides
holding a number of less noteworthy
but mpre lucrative offices. Mr. Cohen
has just made a report on the matter,
which Is full of interesting notes. Mr.
Cohen believes that the publio is en
titled to the protection of two fenders,
one external and in front of the car to
pave the victim from being thrown to
the ground, and the other beneath the
car and Immediately at the wheel, so as
to save him when he first falls. The ex
ternal or front fender must be arranged
that if It fails to catch or pick up the
victim, It shall yield and pass over
without crushing him, leaving the work
to the wheel guard, Mr. Cohen ex
amined over seventy different forms of
fender, among which he finds five
which will probably meet his require
ments in all particulars.
1 Here Is some Information from the
Philadelphia Inquirer which will be
news to residents of the anthracite
region: "It is now admitted by every
man experienced In the coal trade that
the end of this long downward trend of
prices Is near at hand. For twenty
years the market haB been steadily
with the buyer, the supply of coal hav
ing been larger than the demand. But
In that time the consumption of coal
has more than doubled, while much
available anthracite land has been
worked out It is admitted on all sides,
and by no less an authority than Jo
seph S. Harris, the president of the
Reading company, that the production
of the Lehigh region has reached its
maximum. Indeed, the output of that
district is only kept up to Us present
proportions by rescreenlng the great
banks of dirt that have accumulated
from previous years' operations. Simp
son andWatkins, theWllkes-Uarre (sic)
statisticians, say that In the western
end of the Wyoming region there is
no room for a single additional colliery.
The only companies owning any virgin
coal lands of considerable area are the
Reading and Delaware, Lackawanna
and Western, although the Delaware
and Hudson and Lehigh and Wllkes
Barre companies own some small tracts.
The statistics of the trade show that
the consumption of coal Is increasing
at the rate of 1,250,000 tons a year, and
It Is only a question of a comparatively
few years more when this ratio of In
crease will produce most astonishing
results to the companies that still have
undeveloped coal lands.
As illustrating the tendency toward
the consolidation of competitive inter
ests it Is Interesting to note that a
combination has Just been formed in
West Virginia Including all the coal
and coke operators in the Kanawha
and New River valleys. The organiza
tion is not a close trust, but the busi
ness will be governed by one set of of
ficers and apportioned among the
mines. The object is to reduce the
selling expenses and to relieve the oper
ators of the domination of the rail
roads. The capital represented in the
aggregate is over $5,000,000.
1 That was a good bargain which Fish
er A. Baker, president of the First Na
tional bank of New York, made at
Akron, O., the other day, when he pur
chased a $1,265,000 railroad for $844,000,
paying only $10,000 In spot cash. It
was a sheriff's sale, and the road was
the Pittsburg, Akron and Western rail
road, which extends from Akron to
Delphos, 183 miles. Its appraised value
was $1,265,000. The bonded indebted
ness of the road amounts to over $2,500,
000, on which there Is defaulted interest
amounting to $800,000. The labor claims
amount to $33,000. The road was sold
by order common pleas court, as the re
sult of an action brought by John W.
Creech, contractor, for money due for
work. Many others became parties to
the suit. Certificates have been isued
by Receiver W. A. Lynch amounting to
$241,000. The labor claims and costs
will be paid first. The buyers of the
line will attempt to put it on a paying
basis, where It has never been. The line
from Akron to New Castle, commenced
some time ago, will be finished as soon
MINOR INDUSTRIAL NOTES:

A larger amount of coal was hauled
from the Schuylkill region to Packer
ton on Friday last than on any single
day for a year past.
The Louisville and Nashville earnings
for the second week in October in
creased $64,675; from July 1 to latest

Petroleum exports in September were
75,656,000 gallons, compared with 81,526,
000 last year. From Jan- 1 the total is
650.971,000 gallons, compared with 644,
304,000 last year.
The Pullman shops are now running
regularly and are employing about 2,000
men. There are enough contracts on
hand to furnish work all through the
winter, and more are under negotia
tion. An official of the Reading company
said Saturday that the passenger busi
ness which was diverted by the trolley
lines is coming back, and that the re
ceipts now show a decided improve
ment Steps are soon to be taken looking to
the extending of the operations of the
Pennsylvania Voluntary Relief depart
ment over the Vandalla, which now has
one or two limited relief associa
tions. The Union Pacific, the first eight
months of this year, was $3,863,656 be
hind in its gross earnings, as compared
with the first eight months of 1893, but
it cut down its operating expenses
West-bound business from the sea
board Is now so much heavier than east
bound that there is some trouble east In
furnishing cars, and there is quite a
movement of empty cars eastward,
which is very unusual.
The weak lines In the association of
the Chicago east-bound lines, the Wa
bash, the Erie, the Grand Trunk, the
Baltimore and Ohio and the Big Four,
are now carrying over half the tonnage
out of Chicago to the seaboard.
Kaska William colliery, near Shamo
kln, which was idle for two years, and
was, during that time, bought and re
modeled by the Truman N. Dodson
company, of Bethlehem, was formally
opened last Friday. The colliery will
have a capacity of 1,000 tons a day and
will employ 600 hands. i
John Duffy, of New Silver Brook, has
invented a pneumatic contrivance to
hoist without steam or electricity. It
matters not how steep or deep the
plane or slope may be, Mr. Duffy says
he can propel a five-ton car with light
ning like velocity, and at a cost con
siderably below that now necessary.

MAKE WAR ON 1JOGUS BUTTER.
Recently Issued Circular of tho Grangers
The legislative committee of the
Pennsylvania State Grange, Patrons of
Husbandry, comprlslngLeonnrd Rhone,
Gerard C. Brown, li. 11. Warren, R.
H. Thomas and F. N. Morse, has is
sued an address to the people urging
them to aid the grange In its war upon
bogus butter. The address, among
other things, says:
'Oleomargarine is an Imitation and
counterfeit of butter and is invariably
palmed off on the consumer as butter.
It Is a fraud, pure and simple. It should
be accorded no more protection under
the law than counterfeit money. In
some respects bogus butter is more
dangerous to tho public than bogus
money, as has been shown by thorough
Investigation of the process of manu
facture. Hon. Norman J. Colman,
United States commissioner of agri
culture, ascertained that over forty dif
ferent articles were used under fifteen
patents by the manufactures of imita
tion butters. Among the Ingredients
are lactic acid, boracic acid, salicylic
acid, benzoic acid, nitric acid, and
butyric, cottonseed oil, oleo, oil, fats
of all animals, lard, tallow, caul fat,
glycerine, annatto, steerine, etc. The
esources of modern chemistry enable
the manufactures to render any ani
mal fat or offal, no matter how rancid
its condition, together with cotton seed
oil, into a compound which, in appear
ance, is difficult to distinguish from
creamery butter, which deception Is
further carried out by tne metnous
of packing and marketing which they
adopt. It has also been demonstrated
that In the process of manufacture
oleomargarine is not heated above 125
degrees, which Is not sutllcient to de
stroy uny disease germs the animal
fats may contain, while the powerful
acids used to purify and deodorize them
are dangerous to human economy.
Besides this the coloring matter now
used by large manufacturers Is an an-
allne dye called Methy's orange, a
coal-tar color. According to eminent
authorities, who were officially investi
gating this matter, another coal tar
product, cheap ana nasty, wnicn is
now being used extensively where the
laws still permit the making of oleo
margarine, is 'paraphlne wax, which,
indigestible itself, has the dangerous
property of coating the stomach and
digestive organs, destroying their
power of digesting anything.' It there
fore appears to U8 tnat me interest 01
tho public will be best served, not by
the repeal of the act of 1885, because
of the allegation that it Is Inoperative
or for any other pretext, but by the full
and proper enforcement of that law;
and we demand tnat tne legislature
of 1895 provide by nn appropriation,
means of such enforcement by the
THE DICTIONARY HABIT.
If You Ever Foil Into It, It Will Grow
There Is a woman contributor to the
Philadelphia Record who clearly speaks
from experience when she ndvlses her
friends never to be so foolish as to in
vest In a dictionary, for, she adds, "Just
as sure as you do you won't dare to
write a note to your washludy without
consulting It. I've known people who
were considered good autographers, but
after hobnobbing with tho departed Mr.
Webster for a week or so they actually
hesitated before writing their own
names. The more you study a diction
ary the more you wonder what you were
doing when you went to school. The
very smallest words that a tot of 6
would Btlck up her nose at prove to be
the most unsolvable rebuses, and you
are never happy until you've ogled a
few dozen pages of your stupid old dic
tionary. And the habit grows on you,
too! After awile you feel as if you
wanted to flndout the meaning of words
while you are asleep, and you really
long to he able to spell names back
wards. If somebody says, 'How do you
spell receive?' is it ie or ei?' you can't
tell them without hunting up your old
Webster. You are a perfect slave to a
domineering master, and If you don't
eventually get to carrying a pocket edi
tion in the crown of your hat or in the
sleeve of your Jacket you may as well
call yourself lucky."
