TIIE SCRAETON TRIBUNE "WEDNESDAY MOHNINO. OCTOBER 31, 1894.
MINE, MILL AND RAILROAD.
Wllkes-Barre, Pa., Oct. 30. The
Spring Mountain collieries, Nos. 1 and
4, located near Hazleton and owned by
J. C. Hayden & Co., of Jeansville, and
collieries Nos. 1, 3, 6 and the Laurel Hill
and South Sugar Notch collieries, oper
ated by A. Pardee & Co., Hazleton,
were purchased- today by the ''Lehigh
Valley Coal company. These works
employ nearly 4,000 men and boysj-and
have a daily capacity of over 4.S00 tons
a day. The consideration of the pur
chase Is not made known.
The officials of the Pennsylvania
Bailroad company have decided to In
crease Its standard of weight of ateel
rulls on its main line from eighty-flve
pounds to 100 pounds. On the recent
tour of Inspection this matter was giv
en considerable attention and the
change was only deemed advisable af
ter the matter had been thoroughly
discussed. The change is to tr into
effect next year and all new rails be
tween Jersey City and Pittsburg will
be of the new standard. The Increase
In weight Is principally due to the
heavier locomotives, which the -company
has gradually been acquiring, be
sides the Increase in speed. The 100
pound standard Is a big Jump from the
weight rail used years ago. Then fifty
six pounds were considered heavy
enough, but soon the weight was In
creased to sixty-seven, then to seventy
five and then to eighty-five pounds.
The last weight has been the standerd
for several years, and to all appear
ance has met the requirements. A few
years ago 100-pound rails were placed
In various sections of the road for ex
perimental purposes, and as they ful
filled all that was expected of them, It
was decided to use this weight as the
standard until further change. Reside
Increasing the weight there will be, in
all probability, a change in the length
of the rail. At present a thirty foot
one Is used, although In some places
they are twice that length. The length
of the majority of the new rulls will bo
sixty feet. This Is a saving of Joints,
thus giving a smoother surface.
Referring to the "coal war" the En
gineerlngand Mining Journal says there
Is no more hostility among the compa
nies than there has been all along. The
tonnage for the second half of this
month will show that no producing in
terest adhered to the output recom
mended at last month's meeting. This
Js nothing new.; The companies and the
Individual operators have never kept
their "gentlemen's agreement" to main
tain prices at a certain level and keep
the outputs within certain limits. And
this fact Is one of the reasons why the
"pool" has escaped from coming under
the anti-trust law. Every producer has
always tried to sell as much coal as it
could at the best obtainable .price,
whether it was In excess of Its alfotted
tonnage or not. It so happens that dur
ing the past fortnight producers have
obtained orders calling for more coal
than they should have mined under the
agreement. The result Is seen In the
figures for the week ended Oct. 20,
969,000 tons, which Is at the rate of
4,310,000 tons for the month, or 1,350,000
tons more than the "recommended"
output of 3,000,000 tons for October. Hut
ns everybody has been guilty of exceed
ing his allotment, one cannot complain
of ' another. The effect of an unre
stricted output remains to be seen.
Says the Philadelphia Inquirer: For
the last several years the Jersey Cen
tral company has received Interest on
$6,116,000 Lehigh and Wilkes-liarre Coal
company 7 per cent, bonds that it owns,
Interest upon which Is practically pay
able, only If earned, Before the present
managers of the New Jersey Central ob
tained control, the Lehigh and Willces
Barre company had not paid this Inter
est for many years. Mr. Tlllinghast,
the president of the company, Insisted
"upon spending this money on the coal
mines and he developed the property to
a higher state of efficiency than that of
almost any other company. The effect
of these advance expenditures was such
that the company has been able for six
or seven years back to pay the Interest
upon the bonds held by the New Jersey
Central, and In this way the latter com
pany has been able to make a most ex
cellent showing. Outside of Its coal
Investments the Central ought to be
able In normal years to earn 5 or 6 per
cent, on Its stock lyid In good years It
should do even better, but It Is unsafe
to reckon upon any Income from its

Henry W. Bennett, treasurer of the
Republican county committee and pres
ident of the Indianapolis Stove com
pany, employing several hundred
hands, says that he has within the
past week advanced the wages of all

the men. The advance has been caused
by the revlvel of business.

Wnshburn-Crdsby 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-Croshy Co. will take
no risks, und will allow the new wheut fully three
months to mature before grinding.
This careful attention to every detail of milling has
pluced Washburn-Crosby Co.'s flour far above other
