THE SCR ANTON TRIBUNE TUE S DAY MORNING. NOVEMBER G, 1894.
MINE, BULL AND RAILROAD.
The village of Duryea, In Billy Hlnes'
district, Is a striking evidence of the
beneficent influences of the protective
tariff system. Duryea, commercially,
bears no relation to its status five years
ago. Then the Pettlbone tract had not
a single house on it. Now every lot on
Main street Is sold and built on, with
one exception, and those lying between
Main street and the Lackawanna river,
are nearly all sold, and a vlllage'ln that
locality has sprung up with a popula
tion equalling the population of the
original village. P. B. Dills has sold
nearly all of his land, and the Benedict
estate will soon be offered, thus taking
up all the available land on Main street
and In the busiest part of the town, lots
60x150 commanding $3M to $800. The In
crease In population, which uow num
ber about 4,000, .10 not confined to crude
labor, but a good percentage is fairly
well educated, law abiding people, from
among the better class of mechanics,
carpenters, engineers, etc., who make
their influence felt in the community.
When William Connell, Simpson & Wat
kins, and others started In to develop
the coal lands, they bullded better than
they knew, for, in addition to the pros
perity of their individual interests, they
have given to the .counties in which
their collieries are Jocated, practically
two new villages, of which Duryea Is
by far the greater commercially. With
a population of 4,000, this village has 10
general stores, 3 drug stores, 2 furniture
and 1, undertaking establishment, 2 liv
ery and boarding stables, 2 blacksmith
shops, 1 wagon shop, 1 hotel and 17
restaurants, 3 barber shops, 4 meat
shops, 1 Iron fence factory, 1 cigar fac
tory, 1 confectionary and Ice cream und
oyster house, together with several
smaller interests. There is an excel
elnt public school system, but tb five
buildings are crowded almost beyond
their capacity, owing to the trebling of
the population since their erection. The
Methodist church, the only one In the
vicinity five years ago, Is over-crowded
now, and the Baptist and Presbyterian
people have each erected a house of
worship in that period, -as well as the
Polish people, who have a most Impos
ing edifice and an active priest of their
faith working among them and con
ducting a parochial school. If Hlnes
and his ilk can be silenced on election
day, and the railroad companies be
Induced to give Duryea the attention
that increased growth necessitates,
there is a bright future for the coming
borough of Duryea. The' people of
Duryea need a freight depot for the
tons of freight now handled at great ex
pense from Lackawanna and Plttston,
and above all they need the service of
passenger trains, that at present do not
stop there, especially the early train
north and the late train south, f .
The chief representatives of cold
rolled steel In this country are about
to meet and form a trust, whose object
will be the betterment of prices on that
product. The prospective meeting wlH
probably be held in New York some'
day this week, and will be attended
chiefly by eastern men engaged in the
manufacture of the article in question.
It is only within the past two or three
years that cold rolled Steel has come
Into the market as an active commer
cial agent. Hardly had it been intro
duced, however, ibefore it began to
threaten the prosperity of the hot
drawn steel. The price, '. though 2J4
cents per pound for large. quantities, is
far from being a satisfactory one to
those who handle the cold rolled steel.
There are about half a dozen establish
ments In this country engaged in the
manufacture of cold rolled' steel.
Thrre of them, known as the sheet
mills, are located at Pittsburg, where
is also situated the mill of Jones &
Laughll'n. The Union Drawn Steel
mills are at Beaver Falls and the' Com
pressed Steel works at Boston.
The Hudson Bay railway project has
succeeded, it Is said. The route will be
Jrom Winnipeg through the fertile
JBaphln country to the Saskatchewan, a
distance of 300 miles, thence to the
mouth of the Churchill river on Hudson
bay 400 miles through a fine timber re

Will succeed him. Besides these
changes, there Is a rumor that the ma

The anthracite 'coal "trade, In the
opinion of the Philadelphia Inquirer, is
entering upon a new epoch. Hereto
fore the business has been controlled by
a few large companies, the Erie, which

small interest. But now the Erie has
increased lts production .considerably,
and, the Ontario and Western, New
York, Susquehanna and Western, and
Coxe Bros, are additional new and In
dependent factors. They cannot be
controlled or regulated, and these
small producers are large enough in
the aggregate to be of prime Import
ance. When times are dull they are
able to fix prices, and it is only when
the demand Is large that their Influence
is not felt. The market this year has
been made by these small producers,
and the indications are they will make
next year's market too. The business
of mining and carrying coal has become
a mercantile enterprise in which the
competitor who has the smallest
charges per ton to pay will fix the price.

Many of the railroads in Indiana,
Illinois and Ohio are greatly troubled
to' fill orders for cars, moro especially
stock iind coal cars, and in the fruit
growing section there Is a large de
mand' for the better 'class of box cars
in which to ship fruit. Thousands of
carloads of apples, grapes and pota
toes are being shipped from New York
and Michigan to all points In the cen
tral traffic territory, and with the close
of lake navigation there will be a great
demand for grain cars.

New York, Nov. 5. Until the last
half hour of business" at the Stock ex
change today the market for stocks
ruled quiet, but the undertone, as usual
of late, was decidedly firm. In the final
dealings, however, trading was more
active, and the bullish feeling quite pro
nounced. The bulk of the purchases
were for the purpose of covering Bhort
contracts, the small bears having con
cluded that as some of their leaders
had covered in St. Paul, it was time for
them to change.
The anthracite coalerB did not sym
pathize with the improvement, and Jer
sey Central ruled heavy, closing at
914. The stock was influenced by the
talk of a reduction In the dividend. The
advance In the general list ranged Vt to
1 per cent. The market closed strong
with an advancing tendency. Sales,
120,000 shares. I

CHEAPEST IRON BEDS IN
TO OUR patrons :
Washburn-Crosby Co. wish to assure their many pat
rons thut 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-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
placed Washburn-Crosby Co.'s Hour far above other
