TMBTJNE TUESDAY MORNING. OCTOBER 30, 1894.
Industrial and Commercial.
MINE, MILL AND RAILROAD.
The current stock movement against
the coalers has been so bitter that It
indicates to the Philadelphia Record
either that the rumored demoralization
In the coal trade has been arranged for
the Bake of enabling the cliques to buy
that sort of shares, or that the ehort
interest has been so extensive that its
representatives will stop at nothing to
facilitate their own attempts to cover.
Throughout yesterday the streetwas
treated to an extraordinary combina
tion of rumors, among which was one
giving the earnings of the Jersey Cen
tral for the first eight months of the
current year, accompanied by a state
ment that the net result was less than
the fixed charges of the company for
the same period, and that its dividend
might be passed for nn indefinite time.
As Jersey Central is now very closely
held. It would have been Impossible to
gain a knowledge of the real condition
of the company, unless it had been ob
tained from the officials of the road,
and their object in the circulation of
such yarns could only have been aimed
at frightening real holders of that class
of stocks Into selling before the Novem
ber rally commences. Another rumor
was directed specially against the Dela
ware and Hudson company in claiming
that the company's coal beds are near
the point of exhaustion. The latter was
a specially gratuitous piece of informa
tion that could only have started from
people who desired to depress the com
pany's stock quotation. The latter two
stocks, as well as Lackawanna, broke
severely in their quotations. Lacka
wanna dropped from 162 to 156, Jersey
fell from 102 to 98, and Delaware
and Hudson from 126H to 123. ' In all
the melee, however, Heading was at no
time as low as It had been on the pre
dnv. thereby demonstrat
ing that the drive against the other
coalers had been used as a cover under
which some clique had been buying
Reading. Real owners of Reading
would prefer a coal war because It
would enable the company not only to
regain a portion of its lost percentage
r,i allotments hut because the road
ivoniii mnke much more through n-
creased shipments than it could possi
bly lose through a decrease in pi we,
A prominent official of the Reading
Cnn nnrt Iron comnanv. who is thor
oughly conversant with the coal busl
og onl.l tn a Khnmnkln Dlsnatch re
norter. in speaking of the alleged
threatened coal war: "I am not a
prophet and will not atempt to say
what may occur in the future so far as
the coal situation is concerned. The
actual situation today so far as the
Reading is concerned, at least, Is that
we are selling all tne coal we are mm
ine. and for the past two months, ow
ing to the restriction In production, we
have sold considerably more coal man
we have mined, at least 100,000 tons
more, and In consequence thereof, have
very materially reduced our stock of
coal on hand. The time is now on
hand," . he added, "when the coke
regions and New England points will
have to begin to stock up before lake
and river navigation comes to a close
for thl3 winter. This wll permit oi un
restricted mining for Novembei' at
least and the future will depend entire
ly on the severity of the winter. Should
the months of November and December
be mild a curtailment In the produc
tion will naturally follow." Another
prominent official referring to the re
port that the Delaware and Lacka
wanna has withdrawn from the coal
compact said that the company, like all
others, would not turn a '.customer
away after its quota had been mined
Their representative at the meeting
Wednesday, Mr. Holden, the Reading
official said, was In no wise antagonis
tic, but was in accord with what was
done. As to the prices of coal fixed
upon for November the Reading official
said, notwithstanding the Increase they
were considerably lower than for the
same month last year. The Reading
mines, except some special collieries In
cluding those of the Shamokln district
closed down Thursday and will remain
closed today, but after Nov. 1 they will
be operated throughout the month.
Railroad men expect better reports
of earnings from this time on. As one
of them explains to the Indianapolis
Journal: "Wearenow coming to a place
In business with the railways where they
cf n tell about what they are doing in
the way of earnings. Everything is
getting down to the hardpan basis.
"While most roads are carylng a larger
tonnage than last year, and freight
earnings show an Increase, still moBt
roads in this section show a decrease
In passenger earnings up to the present
time, but the tide will now turn with
the passenger department, as after
the third week in October the world's
fair business did not cut a very impor
tant part in receipts from the passenger
service, the business carried being
mostly homeward bound on the return
part of the ticket. I look for better
things with the passenger department
from this on, for the reason that for
weeks past the receipts from the pas
senger business have compared favor
ably with 1892, which was a better year
for some roads than was 1893."
The building alone, without the land it
will occupy, .will coat l,OOtt,0P0. It will
be Are proof, five stories high,' and be
constructed of steel, brick, granite and

Never In the history of the enst-and-west
lines has there been so largo a
movement of empty cars eastward to
seaboard points to be loaded with west
ern business. The billing shows that
west-bound 'tonnage Js 40 :per cent,
larger than In October, 1893, and largely
of the higher class freights.
The decision of Judge Field, of Louis
ville, in a damage suit that the Pullman
company is not a common carrier,- and
therefore not responsible for damages,
as it did not control the running of the
trains, is looked upon as an important
one for that company, if the decision is
sustained by the higher courts.
There seems to be but small hope that
the eastern freight question can be ar
ranged for the better, at least at the
present time. General managers and
general freight agents who have re
turned from the meeting at Cleveland
say that no efforts were made to
strengthen the east-bound pool, and
this, under the present condition,
amounts to the practical cessation of
all efforts to keep up the pool.
The Leechburg Foundry and Machine
company, of Pittsburg, has now ready
for shipment the equipment for the new

doubling shears,- two squaring shears,
one Mesta patent pickling machine and
one No. 2 roll lathe. The Leechburg
Foundry and Machine company is also

Superintendent Lawall of the Ve-
high and Wllkes-Barre Coal company
says that beginning on Monday they
will work eight hours a day and six
days a week. The Lehigh and Wilkes
Barre controls eleven collieries and em
ploys about 3,000 men. Mr. Lawall
said, however, that the full time Is con
tlngent on the weather. The past few
weeks of raw and disagreeable weather
created a brisk demand for anthracite
coal and the surplus stock was exhaust
ed. The Delaware, and Hudson Coal
company has also posted a notice that
their mines would work full time.

An Admirer of McKlnlcy.
From the Rochester Post-Express.
The most effective campaign speaker In
the Republican party today and undoubt
edly the most popular man In that party,
Is William McKlnlcy. Kovernor of Ohio.
He has been speaking for two weeks or
more. Everywhere It Is the same story of
large audiences, effective speaking and
great popular enthuuiaum. JamesU. Blaine
was a great political speaker, Benjamin
Harrison delivered some short speeches in
1888 that were remarkably adroit.
Thomas B. Reed Is an effective orator:
but McKlnley has more energy than
Blaine, greater endurance than Harrison,
more skill In sustained argument than
Reed. One secret of his popularity.
aside from the graces of oratory nnd
complete familiarity with the subject, lies
In McKlnley s personality. However peo
pie may differ with him on the question
of protection, there can b no difference
of opinion an to McKlnley1 as a man. He
Is recognized by all as an exceptionally
able politician, but, beyond and above
that, as a patriotic, pure-minded, and
He bought him a new waste basket
That would hold a bushel or so.
