THE SCKANTCXN TIIIBUNE-SATURDAY MORNtNO. OCTOBER 27, 1894.
MINE, MILL AND RAILROAD.
George Giles, of Carbondale, accord
ing to the Leader, Is the Inventor of a
device for washing coal and culm that
promises In a short time to supersede
all other machines intended for that
purpose. The manner in which he
came to devote his attention to devising
a washer Is somewhat out of the ordin
ary. W. P. Williams was a coal opera
tor who had a small breaker on the
Kallbroolc side of the city near the Mur
rln colliery. Mr. Williams' coal fell
Into disrepute on account of the large
amount of dirt mixed with it. Sales fell
off and one day he found himself with
about 4000 tons of mined coal on his
hands but which it was necessary to
wash before purchasers could be ob
tained. He was a man of limited means
and could not see his way clear to pur
chase outright one of the expensive
washers in use at other collieries. Mr.
Giles was sought out and his figures
; asked concerning the cost of erecting a
simple one at the Williams breaker.
This lead him to planning a cheaper
washer and the result is that he has
obtained one that will cost but a tenth
part of any machine now In use and the
, results of which are preferable. Mr.
Giles has applied for a patent for his
k Invention and It is but a few days be
' fore the letters patent will arrive, as in
vestigation of the different devices
, already on file at Washington show
that there Is nothing with which this
' conflicts. A company will be formed at
once and the washer manufactured and
I put on the market. All who have seen
' its operation are delighted with the
simplicity of the machine and the work
The experimental washer constructed
"by Mr. Giles was erected at the Wil-
i Hams' breaker and has been In opera
tion for some time in the most satis
factory way. A number of prominent
men of Carbondale have witnessed its
workings and were so impressed that
rone of the stock of the new company
will be allowed to go out of the city.
Mr. Williams' coal is again in demand
and Mr. Giles has invented an article
which will soon bring him a handsome
revenue. It consists of a cast iron tub
varying In sizes from three to twenty
feet in diameter according to the
amount of coal to be washed. It Is es
timated that the twenty feet tub will
wash one ton per minute. Through the
centre of the tub runs a shaft having a
number of wings. The dirty coal or
culm drops from a chute through an
opening In one side of the tub and is
revolved in its interior till It reaches a
second opening through which it passes
on to a perforated sheet. The tub is
keep constantly filled with water from
a pipe overhead and this water leaves
the cleaned coal as the latter strikes the
i perforated sheet. The coal Is passed on
i to the screen and thence into the chutes
j in marketable shape. A coal washer of
the intricate pattern recently erected
near Carbondale cost $8000. The cost of
one manufactured under Mr. Giles' pat-
I ent is estimated at $200.
Report from all quarters show that'
the general condition of the anthracite
business Is better now than It has been
for months past, and the outlook ahead
for further improvements is good.
Prices are being well maintained. The
corporations mining and carrying an
thracite are now working In closer har
mony, and the restriction of the output
of coal is being more rigidly adhered to
than at previous time this year. The
' demand for egg, pea and buckwheat
coal Is an excess of the immediate sup
ply. It Is proposed to construct a tunnel
from Jersey City to Brooklyn connect
ing the Pennsylvania railroad and the
Long Island railroad, and forming a
link in the line of travel from this con
tinent to Europe by a new steamship
route from the- eastern end of Long
Island to England. There has Just been
made an application to the aldermen of
Brooklyn for permission to tunnel from
the shore of the East liver to Flatbush
and Atlantic avenue. The tunnel will
be not less than fifty feet below the sur-
j face, and buildings would be tindis-
I turbed. There are some important
structures in Brooklyn along the line of
' the proposed subway. The Hotel St.
Oeorge, the city hall, the court house,
f and hall of records, all the big Fulton
street dry goods houses, and other great
buildings will stand partly over the un-
j derground route.
President Borg and a party of fifteen
directors of the Wllkes-Barre and East
ern railway on Thursday made an in
spection tour of that property. A
Wllges-Barre Record reporter In con
versation with one of the directors last
night learned that the visit had noth
, lng to do with the rumored rupture in
the coal combination. "We have no In
terest in the matter that I know of," he
salid. "So far as our own tonnage Is
concerned, we are satisfied with the re
sults already attained. We are getting
new business every day, the coal traflic
on the Wllkes-Barre and Eastern being
particularly satisfactory. Of course.we
are devoting special attention to coal
and freight on this end of the line Just
now, but we .don't Intend to stop there
by any means. We recognize the fact
that we have the shortest route from
Wllkes-Barre to New York city, by two
hours. That means a good deal in these
days of fast travel. We also recognize
the fact that the resources of this city
and vicinity are well nigh inexhausti
ble, and that, in the near future, you
will have Increased your population
two-fold. Our road is a little crooked
Just now, but we're straightening out
the kinks, and this will reduce the time
still lower. We mean to push our ad
vantage In this respect, without delay.
And talking about quick travel," he
added, "what would the business men
of Wilkes-Barre think of a first cIubs
fast passenger train that would take
them to New York In four hours or
less? Leaving here at, say 9 a. m., they

The Delaware and Hudson Coal com
pany issued orders yesterday that on
and after Monday next all their coal
collerles would resume work on full
time. They employ over 10,000 miners,
laborers and outside hands.
MINOR INDUSTRIAL NOTES:
The New York, Ontario and Western
has decided to lay a second track, so
heavy has the traflic of the line be
come. The Central Traflic association has
advanced rates on grain, Chicago to
New York, 5 cents per hundred-weight,
going Into effect Nov. 12.
The Mexican railroad has for several
years past been receiving from Eng
land steel crossties at the rate of 50.000
a year, and will soon have its entire
system provided with with steel ties.
They weigh 115 pounds and are practic
The Westlnghouse Air Brake com
pany's works at Wllmortings, which
have been only working seven hours a
day and four days a week for many
months, in addition to laying off a large
number of men, have resumed opera
tions to their full capacity.
John Wanamuker hus declined to al
low his name to be used as a candidate
for president of the Philadelphia and
Reading road, assigning as a reason
the refusal of a certain Interest to come
to his support. This is supposed to be
the Interest held by friends of the
Aldace F. Walker, receiver of the
Santa Fe, thinks the anti-pass agree
ment a good move, and will give It his
hearty support. He is very confident
that this will do away with much of
the friction between competing lines
which Indulge freely In Issuing passes
to influence business.
The employes of the Western New
York and Pennsylvania railway, at a
meeting in New York, called to decide
what action should be taken towards
securing a restoration of the 10 per
cent, reduction which was made seven
months ago, decided not to strike, but
to seek the restoration by bringing suit
in the courts.
President Sloan, of the Delaware.
Lackawanna and Wtern, says: "No
unusual significance attaches to the
meeting of our board Friday. It Is the
regulur monthly conference. We are
not interested in anything that the oth.
er anthracite coal people are doing; we
are only concerned as to what the
Lackawanna is doing."
A change in the management of the
Cornwall and Lebanon railroad has
been made. B. Dawson Coleman has
been elected president, and Edward H.
Coleman, L. Heber Smith, Waltei
Scranton. Archibald Rogers and Henrv
T. Kendall have been chosen directors.
une board now consists of the above
newly elected members and John Meily,

A MUSICAL MOUNTAIN.
A Peculiar Natural Phenomenon in the
Mining Regions. '
From the Virginia City Enterprise.
In the old Truckee mining district,
down the Truckee river, near Pyramid
lake. Is situated Nevada's musical
mountain. This mountain was first
discovered by the white settlers In 1863,
at which time there was some excite
ment In regard to the mines found In
the nelghborhod. The discoverers
were a party of prospectors from the
Comstock. They had pitched their
tents at the foot of the niountuin and
for a few evenings thought themselves
bewitched. Each evening, a little after
dark, when the nir was calm and all
was quiet, a mysterious concert began.
Out from the face of the big mountain
were wafted soft strains that seemed
to cause the whole atmosphere to quiv
er as they floated over the camp. The
music then appeared to pass over it un
til it was far away and almost lost in
the distance, when beginning with a
tinkling as of many little silver bells,
there would be a fresh gust of sweet
notes from the mountain.
During the daylight hours little of
the mysterious music was heard and it
was settled that It was not caused by
the wind. A spring near which the
explorers had pitched their tents af
forded the only good camping grounds
in the neighborhood, and as each new
party of prospectors arrived at the spot
the wonder grew. Some Piute Indians
who came along and camped at the
spring were found to be acquainted
with the peculiar musical character of
the mountain. They called it the sing
ing mountain. Some of the men In the
camp became more Interested in the
mountain than In prospecting, and
gave most of their time to an Investi
gation of the mystery of the musical
sounds heard to proceed from It. They
found that the whole face of the mount
ain was covered with thin flakes of a
hard crystalline rock. There were great
beds of these flakes.
The investigators concluded that the
musical sounds heard proceeded from
loose material,-huge drifts of which
Beemed to be gradually working their
way down the steep face of the moun
tain. At all events the strains heard
at tha foot of the mountain In the even
Ing's stillness seemed to be produce!
by the uniting and blending of thi
myriads of bell-like tlnkllngs proceeding
from the Immense beds of paltry debris
creeping down the slope. The solution
of the mystery of the musical moun
tain Is the only one worthy of notice,
As'no mines of value were found the
district was soon deserted and has since
seldom been visited. Therefore few ex
cept the old-time prospectors know
much about the singing mountain.

stock, and we are always up to
buying a Black Dress there are
First Because all grades of Priestley Goods are manufactured
from the very beat quality of Bilk and Australian Wool.
Second-Because the dye is always the same unchangeable re
liable Black, which never grows rusty or gray with age.
Third Because the weave is arm, ana they never slip or fray.
Fourth Because they can be easily cleaned, washed in soap
ana water, if necessary.
Among tlje best things shown are: Camel's Hair, Cheviots, Cravenette Serge, the Granite Weave, Armours, Silk
Warp Henrietta, Metclase, Melrose,' Eudora, etc The last named "Eudora," being the very latest Cloth out The "Eu
dora" is a triumph in textile weaving. It is a Silk Warp, and exquisite in its rich softness. Some say "it's only a
Henrietta.'To those we say, you are 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 quail'
ties and several superior ones, making it the most perfect smooth faced fabric 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-around-year'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 aud new, but in a short time all women will find it their "frieud in need," for
it will always be ready for wear.
Our usual low prices prevail on all Priestley's goods.
