THE KCRANTON TRIBUNE FRIDAY M'0ttNIN'O.: "XOTEMBEB' 9, 1894.
MINE, MILL AND RAILROAD.
Discussing the much-mooted ques
tion of government ownership or rail
roads the Washington Post says:
"Thousands of good citizens In every
part of the country hold to this theory,
and the number of Us adherents In
creases from year to year. The Post
respects' the sincerity of theBe Icono
clastic reformers and cheerfully con
cedes their right to propose and urge
uy sort of change so long as they
limit their crusading to awful methods.
But we believe that they are altogether
in the wrong, and that were the federal
government to enter upon the plan of
owning the railways It would sim
ultaneously enter the road " to
ruin and would soon reach its
terminus. To purchase these roads
would require something like ten
or eleven billions of dollars. They have
cost $10,500,000,000. Some of them are
worth more and some less than their
coat. The government would not under
take to confiscate this property, but If
it took It at all would do so at a fair
appraisal. Is the country prepared, or
will It ever be prepared, to InveBt ten
billions or any billions in railroads?
To be sure, it could manufacture fiat
money, make It legal tender, and com
pel railroad owners to accept the stuff
in payment for stocks, but that would
be more despicably mean than out-and;
out confiscation; for an issue of $10,-
600,000,000 in flat money would be worth-.
"There are," adds the Post, "1.S90
railroads in the United States and
they employ 900,000 men. These with
their families make about 3,600,000, a
very large percentage of our total popu
lation as compared with the number of
dependents on other Industries. Last
year the total receipts of our railways
were about $1,250,000,000. This Income
resulted from the transportation of
694,000,000 passengers and 746,000,000
tons of freight. The dividends were less
than $200,000,000, or less than 1 per cent,
on the ten and a half billions invested.
It is said that 65 per cent, of the rail
roads have defaulted in the last ten
months. Compared with the business
of the railroads that of the federal
government Is a small affair In money
and In the number of employes. Does
anybody believe that the federal busi
ness is more economically managed
than the business of the railway cor
porations? Does not everybody know
that such is not the case? Has civil
service reform made such progress that
we can safely add 900,000 to our 100,000
of civil employes? "Would either of the
two great parties feel sure that a presi
dential campaign would be fairly con
ducted If a million men and billions of
money were under the control of the
other party? It seems to us that a
glance at the railroad statistics ought
to convince any person who under
stands what our government is and
what It was Intended to be that federal
ownership of the railroads would be a
wide and wild departure from sound
principles, a departure -fraught with
the most alarming danger."
On Sunday, Nov. 18, the winter train
schedules on the Pennsylvania and
Reading systems will go into effect. On
the former a number of Important
changes will be made in the service to
the south. A full schedule o. trains
will be placed in service for the winter
travel to Florida and other southern
points. There will also be some Import
ant changes In the service to' and from
the south via the Atlantic Coast line,
the Southern railway and wie Chesa
peake and Ohio. There will be no
change of any importance In the west
ern trains, and but slight changes are
contemplated in. the local. service. On
the Reading much improved service be
tween Philadelphia and New York will
be inaugurated. The principal feature
of this Improvement will be much less
time between the two cities, which will
be accomplished by Increased Bpeed and
fewer stops. In the local service there
will be only minor changes.
George Lowell, general superintend
ent of the Louisville, New Albany and
Chicago lines, tells the Indianapolis
Journal that the time Is not far distant
when every locomotive will be equipped
with an electric headlight, but before
this is done the price must be lower and
some changes made In handling It." He
says it must be so constructed that the
electric headlight will swing on a pivot
and be controlled by a rod extending
from the headlight back to the cab, so
that the engineer, by a little exertion,
can throw the light in any desired di
rection; as his engine rounds a curve
he can turn the headlight to meet that
curve, and as the engine approaches a
sidetrack he can turn the headlight to
strike the switch, flooding it with light
and in an instant showing him if It is
in Its correct position for the train to
pass safely. Mr. Lowell says there
will be a saving which will pay for an
electric headlight on every locomotive
a road has, as there will be no necessity
Tor placing switch signal lights, which
are not only an expense in having a
man to look after them, but their cost
and that of the oil they burn is much
greater than would be supposed. Aside
from this, he thinks electric headlights
are a great preventive of accidents
from head or rear collisions. Another
point he makes Is that, in case of an ac
cident, if the electric light can be hand
led as desired, it can be used as a signal
of a wreck or trouble of any kind, as,
by flashing It upon the sky, its reflec
tions can be seen by actual experiment
ten miles. .
MINOR INDUSTRIAL, NOTES:

to be in a dangerous condition, the

too heavy for the frame work. The col

Philadelphia and Reading hard. In

both the railroad and the coal com

current charges, and for the ten months

The work of removing the water from
me oia abandoned Reno slope, near
Shamokln, goes slowly on. The large
pole pump which gave such good ser
vice after being submerged for the
past twelve years has given out and
the management are compelled to hoist
the water with tank cars, which Is a
very slow and tedious method.
The Edgar Thompson steel mills in
October turned out 3.'.,900 tons of steel
rail, the largest output of any month in
the history of the works. This month
the works will run but five days of the
week. The phenomenal run of October
Is explained by some of the workmen
by the statement that the October pro
duction Is to be used as a basis for the
scale for the succeeding three years,
and it was very desirable that a good
showing be made.
Notwithstanding the agreement en
tered into by the anthracite coal sales
agents to allow unlimited production
this month, the Reading's tonnage for
the week ended Nov. 3 shows a decrease
of 2,740 tons, the total having been 269,-
1(3 tons, against 271,913 tons for the cor
responding period last year. For the
fiscal year to the date named the com
pany's tonnage has aggregated 11,254,-
641 tons, a decrease as compared with
the same period last year of 857,402 tons,
Operations are being pushed at the
Henry Clay colliery, but the big plant
is still suffering for want of steam
Four new tubular boilers are fired up,
says the Shamokln Dispatch, and two
others will be in readiness by the end of
the week. Six of the old nest of cylln
der boilers are still In use, but are only
carrying fifty pound pressure of steam
each. It is evidently the Intention of
the company to abandon these as soon
as they can be replaced by boilers of
the tubular pattern.
STOCKS AX1) BONDS.
By the United Press.
New York, Nov. 7. The undertone of
speculation at the Stock exchange today
was firm. The course or prices was
very Irregular. The opening was rather
weak. Manhattan and Sugar receded
a point each. It was in the industrials
that the bulls made the most progress
and met with the least opposition
There were some wide changes in the
anthracite coalers. New Jersey Cen
tral first declined to 91 and then
bounded up to 94; Lackawana sold up
to 101 H and receded to 160. In the
closing dealings there was a disposition
on the part of holders to accept profits
and the early gain was partially lost.
Compared with yesterday's final figures
prices for the active stocks showed
losses of a, excepting Sugar, Gas
and the coalers, which gained al.
Total sales were 205,000 shares.

Yashburn-Crosby Co. wish to assure their many pat
rons that they will this year hokl to their usual custom
of milling STRICTLY OLD YVIILAT until the new crop
is fully cured. New wheat is now upon the market, and

of the opinion that it is already cured, and in proper
condition for milling. Wushhurii.Oo.shy 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 h:i9
