THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE-MONDAY MORNING. OCTOBER 29, 1894.
MINE, MILLAND RAILROAD.
Sayg Saward: "It does seem strange
that where a certain line of business Is
found to be in so few hands as the an
thracite trade that there is not more of
that feeling of mutual interest in the
general result so much to be desired. It
Is often charged by the press and public
that the managers of this trade form a
very close combine, and that they do
certain things which are not conducive
to the public Interests. As a matter of
fact, they do not live up to reputation in
this respect. A few weeks ago there was
held a meeting of the presidents of the
mining and carrying companies to
adopt some means of adjusting matters,
as the sales agents did not appear to
have the propercontrol over the tonnage.
The parties referred to accepted the sit
uation as it then presented itself and
made a move in what was believed the
right direction that of restriction and
an adjustment of prices, with an abro
gation of the obsolete circular, to the
market prices. Three weeks have re
lapsed, and now we are informed that
this resolution to meet the market con
ditions is not being adhered to as it
ehould be. There can be but one result
of such action, and if any concern gets
restive it is not likely to be productive
of good to the trade."
The statement that the Pardee collier
ies would on Nov. 1 pass into other
hands is still being actively discussed.
A Pottsvllle paper, the editor of which
Is a brother to P. E. Zerbey, the chief
mining engineer of the Lehigh Valley
Coal company, contains the following:
"The announcement comes from Hazle
ton that a sale or lease of thePardee
collieries to the Lehigh Valley Coal
company is announced. These an
nouncements are made on good author
ity, and the movements of the head offi
cials of the Lehigh Valley corporation
nndthoselnterestedforthe Messrs. Par
dee would indicate that the rumors are
authentic. The reports say that the col
lieries will change hands on the first
proximo. Men have been engaged the
past week or more In making an inven
tory of the properties. The South Su
cnrloaf and the Laurel Hill collieries,
It is pretty certain, will go out of the
possession of their former owners. It
Is not so certain that the other collieries
of the Pardees will be among those
to be sold or leased. These are the
Hazleton mine, Hazleton No. 3, Hnzle
ton No. 6 and Cranberry. The deal.
It is said, has been brought
about through Mr. Howe, of
Philadelphia, who has large interests in
the other Pardee collieries, and who is
favorably disposed to the Lehigh Val
The (Hazleton Standard announces
upon which it claims is very good au
thority that "The Jersey Central will
receive the output of the Silver Brook
collieries for transportation over their
road after Dec. 1, or not later than Jan.
1. The Reading and Lehigh Valley
Jtallroad companies at present control
the output and have been for some
years. It is now claimed by knowing
ones that the agreement which bound
the Silver Brook Coal company to ds
pose of the output to these two conv
panles expires after Nov. 1, and they
will be free then to ship their coal over
whatever line they desire. If the story
of the expiration of this deal is a full-
faced fact, then there is nothing impose
Bible in the Central securing the traflic.
From the manner which the Silver
Brook Coal company has been furnish
ed cars for the past year It would seem
practical and business-like that they
would resort to some other method, or
In plainer words offer inducements to
such a constant carrier as the Central
to accept their traffic. The only objeo
tion that would seem dangerous to the
new plans is that which may be prof
ferred by the Reading, for It was of
them these coal lands were leased
Should the stated abruption of the coal
contract favor the Jersey Central it
means a very large gain in percentage
for this company, and following so close
on the Vanwickle achievement will
doubtless awaken them to a keen sense
of their importance."
St. Louis seems to be the mother
city of innovations connected with
Btreet car service. Five years ago,
under President Harrison's administra
tion, a streeet car letter and parcel de
livery system was put into operation,
which two years later was extended to
an express car service; and now, an
ambulance, fitted up In regular hos
pital style, with cots, two physicians
and every other requisite necessary for
the performance of sufgical operations
and medical treatment, will make sta
ted trips over the trolley linen of that
enterprising western city.
Superintendent Harry Gay, of the
Neilson shaft, has a number of work
men engaged in slushing culm into
the recent cave-in, where the surface
fell into the abandoned workings above
water level. A big sluiceway has been
constructed from the top of the culm
bank to the opening of the cave-in and
large quantities of caol dirt are being
washed down it. The cave-in has not
extended any since the first fall, and it
Is not believed that there is much dan
ger ot any other breasts falling in nt
present. The object of the company is
to fill this abandoned gangway solid
With the culm.
Although there is nothing definite
pertaining to the project, there are
reasons to believe, says the Shamokin
Dispatch, that the Mt. Carmel and
Natalie railroad will be continued to
Flysburg and through the intervening
country to Danville. The land between
Natulleand Danville has been traversed
by Manager Vincent, of the Penn An
thraclte Mining company, and Ogden
Ostrander, an expert civil engineer of
Riverside, with a view of determining
what expense might be necessary In
continuing the line on from Natalie
through the country to Elysburg. The
road running to Natalie is private prop
erty and It is probable that the owners
are interested in opening negotiations
with capitalists to extend the road on
up through the country and secure a
market which has thus far been be
MINOR INDUSTrTaL NOTES.
The Western New York and Pennsyl
vania Railroad company reports gross
earnings for the second week of Octo
ber Increased $200.
Vice President Voorhees, of the Read
ing railroad, Is reported to have said
that the Schuylkill and Lehigh rail
sic NAT :'U'R,E
road, leased to the Reading, wai oper
ated at a loss of 32,000 last year.
The MCKeeaport and Youghlogheny
railroad and the Rates' Run branch of
the Southwestern Pennsylvania rail
road have been consolidated with and
made part of the Mononeahela division
or tne Pennsylvania railroad.
The Lehigh & Wllkes-Barre Coal
company may within a month open two
large strippings between Honey lirook
and Tresckow, on the south pitch of the
big vein. The surveyors have almost
compietea their share of the task.
Relative to the alleged coal war Gen
eral Manager R. C. Luther, of the Read
ing coal ana iron company, said: "I
don't think there Is anything in the
talk. I believe it is only a rumor such
as is started every now and then for a
The Reading comDanv is verv short
oi gonoola box cars. There is more ac
tivity in the coal trade and the officials
are having considerable difficulty in
supplying the demand. Work is being
pushed on shop cars and they are being
turned out as rapidly as possible.
ueneral Freight Agent William Stew
art, of the Pennsylvania mammoth
system of lines west of Pltsburg, says
mat freight traffic was steadily in
creasing and the demand for empty
cars was becoming urgent. There are
scarcely any empty cars on the system
English and Irish railway receipts
show a gain of 12.7 per cent, for the
week ended Oct. 7, compared with 1893,
and Scotch railway receipts a decrease
of 14.3 per cent. From July 1 the gain
on the English and Irish lines Is 7.9 per
cent, and the loss on the Scotch lines
15.8 per cent.
There Is now in course of erection at
the Altoona shops a new passenger lo
comotive which is expected to cover 100
miles an hour without any trouble. The
wheels are larger in diameter than the
ordinary engine and will be equipped
with ball bearing, like a bicycle. It will
also have a Bteam pressure of but 90
pounds against 80 pounds pressure In
tne locomotives now used.
STOCKS AND BOXDS.

New York, Oct. 27. The local market
opened steady except for Lackawanna,
wnicn started oft with a decline of
per cent., selling at 162. Speculation in
me general list, nowever. was soon over
shadowed by another big drop in the
aninracue coalers. Lackawanna fall

to 98, and Delaware and Hudson, 3 to
123V4. Of these stocks only 13,000 shares
changed hands, but the attack was so
fierce that prices at one time dropped a
point between sales. For the first time
the bears succeeded in bringing out
longstocksand now that they have some
of the more timid bulls frightened they
are making all sorts of wild predic
tions. Reading was decidedly firmer
and closed higher in the day. Spec

"Yes, and nt the same rent.' remarked
the woman with the ostrich boa.

"No, dear, but Just as she was leavlne

when I called out the landlord's address
after her she didn't seem much inter

"Some time ago? Yes. but I never

"Never went near. The bedrooms
were too small for the next people, and

thought the rent rather dear. Then I
remarked that immediately after lunch

gage that lovely little house in the next
square at a lower rent. They carelessly
asked which house, and I noticed that
they turned that corner."
"How could you?"
"Well, did she"

Points for Persons Interested lit the Sci
ence of Reading Character.
From New York Commercial Advertiser.
The science of chironomy, or reading
character by closely Inspecting the
hand, is a queer as well as a delightful
study, taken in any ot Its branches. It
is said that if the palm of the hand is
lean or "skinny" and narrow, the owner
is a person noted for timidity, feeble
ness of mind, and as one being want
ing in moral and intellectual forces. If
too thick, big and Btrong, it denotes a
low order of intelligence, with a tend
ency to brutality. A hollow, deep palm
always denotes misery. Ill-luck, and
that the owner has been a failure tn
life. Fingers round and smooth denote
a tendency to act on impulse or lntu-
tlon, rather than by reason, calculation
or deduction, and knotty fingers de
note a tendency to order and arrange
ment. As a general rule, persons with
short, thick Angers are quicker, more
impulsive and act more on the spur
of the moment than those with long,
slim fingers, especially If the latter
have a tendency to turn backward
from the palm. If the fingers are very
short and square cut at the ends it
signifies cruelty or want of tact. Long,
pliable fingers denote love of detail or
general luxury. Large nands and
Angers usually belong to workers with
minute things (such as watchmakers,
etc.), while small hands generally be-'
long to persons haying colossal works
on hand, or. who are planning the Bam,

Priestley Henrietta did seem as near complete excellence as it is possible to reach, but the Eudora has all its good quali

of millinR 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
