THE SCEANTOtf TKiBUNE-FItlDAY MORNTN'Gr, OCTOBER 2G, 1894.
Industrial and Commercial.
MINE, MILL AND BA1LR0AD.
At their meeting yesterday in New
Tork the coal sales agents advanced
prices 25 cents a ton for stove coal and
15 oents a ton for all other sizes. The
new schedule for November delivery Is
U a ton for stove, $3.75 for egg and
chestnut, and $3.60 for grate. This
should dispose of the stories current
for the past few days of the dissolution
of the so-called anthracite coal combi
nation. It was also decided to mine
during November to the full capacity
of the companies without restriction.
The western coal sales agents have
recommended an advance of 25 cents
per ton on all sizes to the west. The
report that the Delaware, Lackawanna
and Western Railroad company had
withdrawn from the operators' combi
nation was denied. The following com
panies (were represented: Philadel
phia and Reading, Delaware, Lacka
wanna and Western; Delaware and
Hudson, ' Pennsylvania Coal company,
Jersey Central, Lehigh Valley and
Attorney BIJur, counsel for Isaac L.
Rice, yesterday filed voluminous ex
ceptions in the United States Circuit
court to the report of George L. Craw
ford, special master In the Reading
railroad recivership, which recom
mends the dismissal of Mr. Rice's peti
tion asking for the removal of the
Reading receivers. The petition was
filed Dec. 12, 1893. by Mr. Rice on be
haf of himself and other creditors of
the Reading ralroad. Exceptions to
the master's report which the petition
er had previously filed were dismissed.
The prsent exceptions were 219 In num
ber and they cover 130 pages of type
President Sloan, of the Delaware,
Lackawanna and Western railroad,
Bald yesterday in regard to the rum
ored withdrawal of his company from
the anthracite coal pool: "We have
not been In any pool or combination
for years, and we have not Instructed
our collieries to go ahead and produce
all the coal they can regardless of re
Btrictlon. There is no agreement to
reduce output, only a monthly under
Btandlng among coal producers as to
prices." Mr. Sloan's statement, how
ever, that his company will restrict
production is important.
For several days rumors of a change
In the collieries of A. Pardee & Co. have
been quietly circulated. One report
stated that the transfer would be
made to Eckley B. Coxe, but this
was emphatically denied. As to who
the new operators will be Is conjecture,
but the Hazleton Standard has Infor
mation from a fairly reliable source
that Gllllngham Fell, of Philadelphia,
who controls the leases, has organized
a syndicate to operate the mines. That
Borne sort of a deal is on foot there is
no doubt, as for the past week men have
been- engaged at Laurel Hill and the
other collieries operated by Pardee &
Co., taking an Inventory of the same.
This is all the Information obtainable
at this time. Another rumor extensive
ly circulated was to the effect that a
lease of the Valley shops had been of
fered to A. S. VanWlckle and Eckley B.
Coxe. This the railroad officials deny
During last week and part of this a
movement has been on foot to consoli
date the electric railroads in Schuylkill
county into one powerful corporation.
The parties Interested in the deal took a
ride over the lines that are to enter the
combine on Tuesday, and, as we learn
from the Hazleton Standard, seemed
well satisfied. A number of new lines
are also to be erected, among them be
ing one from Delano to meet the Le
high Traction company's line from Ha
zleton at Borne point on the South Side.
This would make Lakeside a central
point from Hazleton, Shenandoah, Ma
hanoy City, Ashland, Tamaqua and
even Pottsvllle for picnic parties. With
this in view, there has been talk of ex
pendlng$40,000orsoln building a hotel,
increasing the size of the lake and mak
ing the resort otherwise attractive.
William H. Hoskins has resigned his
position as Are boss at No. 11 colliery at
Plymouth to accept one as mine fore
man for Jermyn & Co. at Peckvllle. He
will assume his new duties on Nov 1.
George L. Houser, general forwarding
agent of the Lehigh Valley railroad,
will shortly remove his family from
Plttston to Bethlehem.
Several engineering corps are engaged
surveying a route to Stroudsburg from
Drifton to connect with the Delaware,
Susquehanna and Schuylkill railroad.
It looks to the Wllkes-Barre Record as
if Eckley B. Coxe would yet operate his
own main line to Philadelphia.

. There is a heavy demand for freight
equipment, and General Agent Wagner
says that all the equipment companies
are doing thetr best to supply It. Not
In the last two years have the equip,
ment companies enjoyed as good busi
ness as at present.
Not for a year and a half has the
Perklomen railroad been bo rushed
with freight as at present. The crews
are making extra trips to assist In
keeping things moving. A very large
amount of coal from the Lehigh regions
is sent to Philadelphia and vicinity by
this route. East Penn Junction Is a
very busy place in consequence. The
freight over the East Penn road has
also Increased In volume the past week.
and many extra trains are being run
over that road also.
STOCKS AND B0XDS.
By the United Press.
New York, Oct. 25. The monotony at
the Stock Exchange was rudely dis
turbed today by a sudden onslaught on
the anthracite coal shares. Heavy sell
ing for both the long and short ac
counts carried Delaware and Hudson
down 5 to 126; New Jersey Central 3
to 104; Lackawanna, 3 to 162, and
Reading to 17. The break was as
cribed to rumors of an impending disso
lution of the coal combination because
of the heavy over production and the
cutting of prices. So far as the dis
ruption of the coal combination It need
only be said that the sales agents at
their meeting late in the day decided
to advance stove 25 cents, and all other
sizes 15 cents per ton for November de
livery. The production, however, was
not restricted as usual and the com
panies can mine if so inclined to their
On the announcement of the advance
In coal, Delaware and Hudson rallied
2; New Jersey Central, 2, and Reading
. Late in the day Jersey Central re
turned to 104, Reading to 17V4, Dela
ware and Hudson to 128. and Lacka
wanna to 164. The general list showed
a rising tendency and at one time ex-
niDiiea an advance of to 1 per cent.
In the closing dealings the generai
market was firm and the coalers was
a shade easier. Speculation left off
steady. No changes show losses of 10
to 34 per cent, in the anthracite coal
ers, to per cent. In the general list.
Total sales were 91,500 shares.

PROMISE AND PERFORMANCE.
From New York Commercial Advertiser.
In 1893 our exports of gold exceeded our
imports by $80,893,772, while buring the full
term of President Harrison's administra
tion exports of gold over imports was $125,
693.240, with the Sherman law in full force.
For the hrst eight months of 1894 our ex
ports of gold have exceeded our Imports
by $84,233,281, or at the rate of $126,349,820
During the years 1890, 1891 and 1892 more
foreign capital was Invested in this coun
try than In auy other period of our his
tory. Foreign capitalists vied with each
other In buying up our great Industrial
establishments and in erecting new ones.
The value of our exports of merchandise
for 1889, 1890, 1891 and 1892 was $3,514,989,017,
exceeding that of any previous four years.
The balance of trade in our favor was
$108,228,296, while now the balance of trade
is against us and the confidence of foreign

MR. SINCERITY'S SHAKES.
From the Pittsburg Times.
Mr. Slngerly Is a genial gentleman and
a good fellow and many of his personal
friends of all parties In all sections of the
state will be glad to have the opportun
ity of meeting him at their homes and of
shaking his hand, but when It cornes to
voting they will, as a rule, be found giv
ing him another kind of a shake. And
this they can do with easy conscience, for
they will simply be following out Mr.
Slngeriy's own advice.
The Real Issue.
From the Philadelphia Times, Dcm.
With Tammany making the fight solely
for Tammany there will be no confusion
in the minds of the voters. Those who
want Tammany rule perpetuated with all
thnt It Implies, of police corruption, bru
tality and blackmail, will vote for Grant,
and all who want a change from this sort
of mlBgovernment must vote the ticket of
the committee of seventy, headed by
Rtrong and Goff. The patriotism, charac
ter, business integrity, morality and social
decency of New York are now engaged In
a life and death conflict with Its selfiBh,
corrupt and criminal elements, and all
civilization is an Interested spectator of
Tho Chinese Democracy.
From the St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
If the Chinese army doesn't win a vic
tory pretty soon, the world will begin to
call It the Democratic party of the Orient.

Among the best things shown are:
Warp Henrietta, Metelase, Melrose, Eudpra, etc. The last named "Eudora," being the very latest Cloth out. The "Eu
aora is a iriumpn in textile weaving, u is a Mile Warp, and exquisite in its rich softness. Some say "it's only a
Henrietta."To those we say, you arc mistaken; it's more than a Henrietta. You ask wherein it is better? Well, a
Priestley Henrietta did seem as near complete excellence as it is possible to reach, but the Eudora has all its good quali
ties and several superior ones, making it the most perfect smooth faced fubric in the world. It has extra width. A
great advantage, too, in these days of Umbrella Skirts, Full Coats, etc.
. It has extra weight Not so heavy as to make it too warm for a good all-arotind-ycar's dress, but just enough
heavier than the Henrietta to give it the appearance of having the body of a Ladies' Cloth without its overburdening warmth.
. It positively will not catch the dust The dust shedding qualities of Priestley's goods have always been their
strong feature, but the Eudora has been experimented upon, until it is an improvement over all and the climax of per
fection is reached. The Eudora is young and new, but in a short time all women will find it their "friend in need " for
it will always be ready for wear. '
Our usual low prices prevail on all Priestley's goods.

Washburn-Crosby Co. wish to assure their many pnt
rons that they will this year hold to their usual custom
of milling STRICTLY OLD WHEAT until the new crop
is fully cured. New wheat is now upon the market, and
owing to the excessively dry weather many millers are
of the opinion that it is already cured, and in proper
condition for milling. Washburn-Crosby Co. will take
no risks, and will allow the new wheat fully three
months to mature before grinding.
This careful attention to every detail of milling has
placed Washburn-Crosby Co.'s flour far above other
