THE SCBANTON TRrBTTNE TUESDAY MOHNIKO-. OCTOBER 23, 1894.
mine, mill and railroad.
Pittsburg advices from a souroe evi
dently hostile to the Carnegles assert
that steel Tails have been sold for
months by members of the steel rail
pool at prices considerably below the $114
a ton rate. According to this source of
Information It "has been an open secret
that the $24 rate has been frequently
cut in the Southern and Western mar
kets. Conclusive evidence was found
this week showing that the pool has
lowered prices. Borne weeks ago the
Carnegie Steel company placed a bid
for the delivery of 15,000 tons of steel
rails In Indian Territory. The Choc
taw Coal and Railroad company Is
about to build a line of railroad there.
The Colorado Iron & Coal company,
which has a small rail mill at Pueblo,
placed a bid against that of the Car
negie Steel Company and was able to
heat the big Pittsburg concern by a
margin of 8 cents, owing to the railroad
freight rates. The Carnegie company's
bid was $28.70 for rails delivered at Ok
lahoma City, The freight rate from
Pittsburg to Oklahoma quoted to the
Carnegie Steel company was $6.90 per
ton. This would make the Carnegie
Steel company's selling price for their
rails In Pittsburg $21.C0. This figure
Is almost $4 lower than the rate olllc
Jally proclaimed by the pool. The Col
orado Iron and Coal company will be
forced to make some alterations and
enlargements In its mill to carry out the
contract It obtained.1 Heretofore this
company had not been regarded as a
competitor of the Steel Rail Trust, but
Its success In bidding against the Car
negie company In this instance, it is
nrgued, raises a competitor against the
Carnegie company In the west.
The rate cutting of the steel rail pool
has been confined principally to the
west and southwest. In the market
along the eastern seaboard and in the
northeast the $24 rate of the pool has
been pretty well maintained. The cut
ting that has taken place In the south
west began because the pool was forced
to protect Itself from foreign rail,
Which are brought to New Orleans by
water. The lowered tariff on the rails
In the new tariff law gave the foreign
manufacturers further opportunity to
compete with the American rails. This
Is also true on the Pacific coast, where
European rails are being brought in
greater numbers than ever. It now
seems certain that the American manu
facturers will continue the pooling ar
rangement of this year. It Is said that
several meetings have already been
held with this object in view. Chair
man H. C. Frlck and Vice-Chairman
John G. A. Lelshmnn, of the Carnegie
Steel company, were in the east last
week and It is reported that they have
been attending a meeting of the steel
rail magnates. A gentleman compe
tent to speak authoritatively stated
some days ago that the pool would cer
tainly be continued next year. He in
timated that it would be with the $24
In the opinion of John H. Martin, an
observant ex-railroader who now trav
els at the head of a leading theatrical
organization, the most serious thing
the passenger departments of the rail
ways have now to contend with Is
the trolley systems, which promise to
make serious inroads Into their short
travel and suburban business. He cites
'Allentown, where there is a group of
five large cities all connected by trol
ley roads and carrying the people at
one-third the rates which the steam
roads have been charging on short trav
el, and not taking much more time than
do the steam lines, when It Is consid
ered that, eight times out of ten, the
trolley line takes the passengers to the
door of the place at which he wishes to
stop. On inquiry, Mr. Martin found
that the Lehigh Valley, the Reading
and the Pennsylvania lines were feel
ing this competition very much In their
pussenger earlngs. Another Instance
he cites In the Indianapolis Journal
Is between St. Paul and Min
neapolis. Between those cities are
lour tracks of steam roads, and
In years past the travel be
tween the two points has been large
and yielded a large revenue to the
steam roads. Now there are several
trolley lines. The steam roads make the
run a few minutes quicker, but charge
three t linos as much.andtheadvantages
between the two, all things considered,
are quite equal, yet Mr. Martin was told
by a railway official of one of the St.
Paul steam lines that It would cut into
their revenue between those two points
at least $200,000 a year. Just tit present,
Mr.Martin says, the electric trolley lines
are making the most sorio'u lnn.-nda mi
past-fnger earnings) of Pennsylvania
and New England roads, but there is
no telling where this competition will
end. In 1880 the first Important electric
line was constructed, and little more
was done for five years, but In the last
three years rapid strides have been
made. Today there are at least 15,000
miles of electric railways In the coun
try, over which are run at least 20,000
electric cars, and It Is evident that elec
tric lines have come to stay.
The official report of anthracite ton
nage for September, as prepared by V.
W. Ituley, gives the output 3,270,81 2 tons,
n decrease of 343,883 tons, as compared
with last year. Kor the year to date
the tonnage Is 29,030, 692 tons, a decrease
of 1,585,288 tons. Storks of coal at tide
Tests recently made at the Luke Fl
fller mine near Shamokin have proved
disappointing. It was found that it
would be absolutely impossible to open
up the water level tunnel for some
time. The gaB escaping from all the
mine openings is very strong and ex
tinguished the lights In all of the tests
made. It will now be necessary to
wait until the workings of No. 2 slope
have been filled with water before en
tering the water level tunnel can be
thought of and it wjll require fifteen or
twenty days to accomplish this. The
rheumatic gout, or any gouty or rhcu
matlc affection w hatever, has its surest
remedy in the Carlsbad Sprudel Salt
There's nothing so successful in clear
ing out the excess of uric acid In the

dreds of years and in thousands of
cases at Carlsbad.

Mr. George B. Orlady of Huntingdon,
who is familiarly known in Bcranton
by reason of his political addresses, was
recently made happy by the discov
ery of gold ore In the Tussey mountains
of Blair county, on property which a

decreased during September 1,934 tons.
The shipments were more than 25 per
cent, greater than the tonnage agreed
upon by the coal sales agents. There
is no doubt that the supply of coal has
been in excess of the demand since
last June. This has made October,
which ought to be the greatest coal
month of the year, a comparatively
dull one. The distribution of coal is,
of course, larger than it was, and it is
growing gradually, but It is not what it
should be, and prices are barely main
tained. MINOR INDUSTRIAL NOTES:

The Latin of It.
From the Bston Advertiser.
The Middlesex club entertained the Re
publican candidates for state ofllces at
Young's SuturUay, and entertained them
rlirht royally, too. Everybody was in
hlKh spirits, nnd the speeches were full of
fire and fervor. Attorney-General Knowl
ton's benediction was a parody on "a
Jlnglo of Latin." "I think," said he, "It
is one of the odes of Horace. At any
rate, It is very Horutlan In sentiment,
nnd Is very true to nuture. It Is some
thing like this:
'Hoyabus, klsslbus sweet glrllorlum,
Olrllbus llpibus wantee summorum.'
"The reason 1 think of that Is that with
a slight adaptation and alteration it sums
up the present political situation to a dot.
As we think how triumphantly the pco-
plo were deluded Into voting for the nom
inos of tho Democratic party and where
tne people nnd tnemscives today, I am
Inclined to paraphrase that little dog
gerel Into something like this:
"Democracy foollbus dear populorum,

Only the smallest sort of a plcnyune
politician would have dreamed of muklng

inutive souls who imagined that such
a sword would only cut one way have
doubtless discovered their error ere this,

Senator Hill has a butler who was born
In Sweden. The Issue Is now joined. On
the one side is John James Howard, on
tho other is Rudolf Blerl; the one a ruddy
son of Britain, the other a descendant of
the Vikings. Political differences are of
cmparattvely little consequence, the tar
iff is a straw, good government Is a fleet
ing vision In behalf of which no argument
need be set up. The fight is on between
the English Jehu and the, Swedish house

Down with Populism.
From the Philadelphia Times, Dem.
We regard the overthrow of Populism
today bb a much more Important Issue
than the ovorthrow of any other political
organization or the defeat of any na
tional measure. The next house of con
gress Is not likely to be Democratic, but It
may not be Republican. If it shall not
be Democratic, we sincerely hope that It
may be absolutely Republican; but if, as
Is possible, the Populists shall hold the
balance of power, tho patriotic men of
both parties should unite and organize tho
house on an equitable bnls, giving the

and thus organizing It without obligation
to, or consideration ror, tne populist ele
rnent of the country. Its doctrines Is revo

of public and private property, tne over

nnd Its every highway leads to anarchy.
