MINE, MILL AND RAILROAD.
The steady speculative drive In coal
ers recently has given birth to a large
variety of rumors, some serious and
some amusing. One that combines a
little of both characteristics Is thus out
lined In a trade Journal: "Mrs. Charles
Cummlngs, once Mary Packer, young
est daughter of the late Judge Asa
Packer, has retained legal counsel to
look after her Interests in the Lehigh
Valley Railroad company. No Idea Is
conveyed as to her Intentions In the
premises, nor does the rumor state the
cause of her dissatisfaction with the
"Wilbur management, especially notable
as she has been regularly paid the In
come agreed upon several years ago
with the company. So far as has been
learned the company has not defaulted
upon any payments to her; still, it Is
well known she is not in sympathy with
the present management. In fact, her
hostility to it, as well as the antagonism
of her husband, is so great that neither
of them will ride in Lehigh Valley cars
except In extreme cases. They both
use the Jersey Central whenever feasi
ble and pay their fares. One well-informed
person expresses the belief that
whatever action has been taken by Mrs.
Cummlngs has been upon the sugges
tion, or at the dictation, of her husband,
and that he, In turn, is acting in accord
with some greater power. It is even
asserted that the Vanderbllts have a
hand in the matter, and that among
the immediate future possibilities is
the control of Lehigh Valley either by
the Vanderbllts or the Lackawanna In
terestsone and the same thing.
Last Saturday the Central broke its
New York-Philadelphia record. Gov
ernor McKlnley, of Ohio, was to speak
In Philadelphia. He had come through
New York., state and down the Hudson
Valley on specials, and the Central had
heard doubtless that these specials had
made astounding records. So the Cen
tral people settled down to business.
Governor McKlnley stepped on to their
station at Jersey City at 4.35 p. m., and
just 92 minutes later he alighted from a
Pullman at the terminal station, Phila
delphia. It took but four minutes for
the governor and his party to get
aboard the train, and It started without
delay, with a rush. It was making
thirty miles an hour when the Pullman
cleared the big car shed at Jersey City,
and It passed Bound Brook with a
record better than a mile a minute from
Jersey City. The distance Is ninety
miles, and the time is the fastest ever
made between the two points. ;
In the reports of the Pennsylvania
Railroad company,: the Pittsburg, Cin
cinnati, Chicago and St. Louis, the
New York, Lake Erie and Western and
the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern,
whose reports are filed In the depart
ment of internal affairs, as compiled by
Deputy Secretary Isaac B. Brown, It is
found that in a single year the fiscal
year just closed there has been a fall
ing off in the number of men employed
of 14,198. Looking further into the re
ports of these four companies, which
are verified by the oaths of the officers
of the companies, it is found that in a
single year there has been a falling off
In compensation paid to employes of
$10,788,375.87. These returns show that
these roads have carried 18.67G,G00 tons of
freight less this year than the pre
ceding year, and that the revenues
from freight tranportatlon alone have
been decreased $10,083,580.13.
W. P, Holbert, of BInghamton, N. Y
Is the owner of a tract of land at a
place called Thornbottom, In Wayne
county, under which he thinks there
Is plenty of workable coal. Borers are
at work there now and have gone down
a distance of 300 feet. A vein of coal
was struck near the surface which was
eight inches In thickness, and another
vein has been found which is thirty
Inches thick. The borers will go down
another hundred feet and the Indica
tions are good for the finding of a work
able and paying vein of anthracite.
Further evidence that the anthracite
coal companies are producing on the
go-as-you-please theory Is found in the
statement of shipments for the week
ended Oct. 27, as prepared by the bureau
of anthracite coal statistics. It shows
total shipments, to have been no less
than 1,006,107 tons, or within 34,003 tons
of the total for the corresponding week
of last year. The result, however, shows
that the production has steadily In
creased from week to week since the.be
ginnlngof themonth. Forthefirst week
shipments aggregated 754,707 tons, for
the second week 806,181 tons, for the
third week 969,683, and for last week, as
shown, 1,006,107 tons, making a total of
3,536,678 tons for the first twenty-seven
days of October. As there are four days
yet to be accounted for, Indications are
the month's total will equal, if It does
not exceed, 4,000,000 tons.
The committee of the Schuylkill coal
exchange has fixed the rate of wages to
be paid the miners In that region for the
last half of October-and the flrBt half
of November at $2.26, which Is 8 per.cent.
below the $2.50 basis, the same as last
month. The output of anthracite coal
by the Reading Coal and Iron company
for the month of November will amount
to nearly 1,000,000 tons. There are but
twenty-three working days In Novem
ber for the collieries. There are four
Sundays, Nov. 1 was a holiday, and elec
tion day and Thanksgiving Day will
also be observed as such, making
seven days these mines cannot work,
but, notwithstadlng that fact, If no ac
cident occurs, the company will ship
1,000,000 tons of coal to tide water at
Philadelphia and New York. There are
a number of Individual operators in
Schuylkill county, it is said, who will
swell the output 250,000i (tons more,
which will make an aggregate of the

were killed and 126 injured. Of those
killed thirty were employes, five pas
sengers and fifteen trespassers; of those
Injured, eighty-four were employes,
thirty-two passengers, and ten tres
passers. Among the '. unusual acci
dents noted was that on the Lake Erie
and Western at Lafayette, and that at
Columbus, O. During the month there

able damage from the explosion of boil
ers of locomotives.
STOCKS AND BONDS.
By the United Press.
New York, Nov. 1. The stock market
was nervous today and responded
quickly to outside conditions except
American Sugar, which acted directly
contrary to the current news on the
property. The stock was in demand
throughout and advanced from 84 to
86, closing at 86, a gain of 2 per cent,
for the day. The general list displayed
a firm undertone, the market recovered
quickly from bear attacks. This con
tingent hammered the Grangers and
New Jersey Central at times, but they
did not succeed in shaking out long
stock as on previous days of the week.
The impression is gradually gaining
ground that the big bears have taken
advantage of the break in the coalers
and Northwest to reduce their short
lines, preferring to have their house in
order so as to be prepared for what
ever the elections may bring forth.
The news today generally favored
these operating for higher prices. The
death of the czar had no effect. Read
ing securities were In good demand
for Philadelphia account at an advance
of 1 to 1 per cent. When the sell
ing ceased prices advanced briskly and
a number of issues sold at the best of
the day. The closing was llrm and a
rather confident feeling prevailed. Net
changes In the general list show gains
of to 2 per cent., American Sugar
leading. The total sales were only 159,
104 shares, but the business was better
distributed than of late.
The range of today's prices for the ac
tive stocks of the New York stock market
are gtV'in below. The quotations are fur

Boston, Nov. 1. Louise Imogene
Gulney, a poetess and the postmistress
of Auburndale, recently had her salary
as postmistress cut $100 a year, be
cause the receipts of the office had de
creased. This she ascribes to residents
of Auburndale buying stamps else

BILL FOR DINNERS AND CABS.
Almost Disrupts French Coblnct-The
Claim Referred to the Government.
By the United Press.
Paris, Nov. 1. There was a stormy
debate In the chamber of deputies yes
terday over the accounts of M. Favette,
a high official In the ministry of com
merce. In the accounts were Included
bills for dinners at Voislns on 640 occa
sions, and for six cabs, each for the use
of Senator Lourties and M. Guerln,
minister of Justice. Premier Dupuy ad
mitted that these bills were irregular,
but thought that there was no circum
stance connected with them that would
Justify the prosecution of the offenders.
Amid great excitement M. Jaures
moved that "the chamber refer the pa
pers lri question to the government."
The motion was accepted by the gov
ernment and was carried by a vote of
116 to 1.
The morning newspapers agree that
the Favette Incident threatened for a
time the existence of the cabinet. The
resignation of M. Lourties, minister f
commerce, is still regarded as possible.

Washfcurn-Crosby Co. wish to assure their many rot
rons that they will this year hold to their usual custom
ol milling STRICTLY OLD WliKAT until the new crap
is fully cured. New wheitt 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-Crosbv 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
