THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE SATUFDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 10, 1894.
MINE, MILL AXD RAILROAD. ,
R. Q; Dun & Co.'b weekly review of
trade says: Business has been waiting
and the greater part of the past week,
and the elections are expected to give
it a sharp stimulus. Whether men are
right or wrong In expecting better
things, the fact that they expect them
does tend to make things better. Thus
a large volume of trade might be an
ticipated, although no political events
can alter the size of the corn crop, nor
make the demand for wheat or cotton
closer to the supply. In the specula
tive markets there has been scarcely
any movement, and nothing favorable
to holders. Stocks were a shade strong
er the day after the election, but the
strength did not seem of an enduring
kind. The average of railroad stocks
at the close Is barely $1.22 higher than
a week ago, and of trust stocks Jl.SS
higher. The truth is that the disposi
tion to realize on every small advance
Is constantly encouraged by the un
satisfactory reports of earnings, which
for the month of October were 3.8 per
cent, smaller than last year, and 8.8 per
cent, smaller than in October, 1892. The
break in the coal stocks has not been
repaired and it is believed that the
coal carrying roads will huve to sacri
fice a considerable part of their past
profits. The output of pig iron was
larger by 7,731 tons Nov. 1, when it was
158,866 tons weekly, than it was Oct. 1,
and larger than a year ago, but it is
still about 13 per cent, below the out
put lust May before the great depres
sion began. Reports of failures are, on
the whole, encouraging in comparison
with last year, and yet the volume of
liabilities is larger for the season tnan
in any year of ordinary prosperity. The
failures during the past week have
been 261 In the United States, against
358 last year; and 42 in Canada, against
37 last year. There have been a few
failures of consequence during the
week, but none of extensive Influence.
The Silver Brook Coal company Is
about-to establish a shipping office at
the No. 2-colliery. Since the plant was
first placed In operation all the coal has
been billed for transportation at No. 1
colliery, where the pay office and ship
ping apartments are combined. This,
as the Hazleton Standard explains, in
conveniences the Philadelphia and
Reading crews to a great extent, for
they are compelled to run from No. 2
to No. 1 colliery, a distance of a mile,
In order to obtain the bills for any con
signment of coal no matter how meagre.
The Hazleton Standard Is confirmed
in Its belief that the Jersey Central
contemplates an extension of Its line
from Tamanend to Silver. Brook. It
says: "A line was surveyed between
these two places some time ago, which
did not altogether meet the approval
of the officials, who were Inclined to
believe that the grade could be reduceu.
With this object in view a corps of Bur
veyors were ordered out upon the pro-
posed line Thursday morning, com
mencing their survey from a point
south of Tamanend. This seems sub
statial evidence that the Jersey Cen
tral means business. It has been a
point of argument for years that if the
Central owned its own road from
Mauch Chunk to Audenrled it would
have entered the prosperous city of
Hazleton and probably continued its
line to a point between Pcan Haven and
White Haven and formed a connection
with its main line from New York to
the rich Wyoming valley. It is an un
deniable fact that this company has as
sumed and developed enterprising plans
In the past few years, and the extension
of its road as noted above, even at this
late day, is not out of the range of pos
The gossips do not like to surrender
McLeod. One of 'them last Thursday
revived the rumor that he would soon
be offered the presidency of the Lehigh
Valley railroad. This story has been
repeatedly and positively denied from
sources of reliable information, but
Its reappearance, nevertheless, creat
ed no little interest in local
financial and railroad circles. As
far as could be learned the only foun
dation for the report is the fact that a
certain party In Philadelphia, who rep
resents some large Interests in the road
Intends calling upon Mr. McLeod and
discussing Lehigh Valley affairs, with
a view, u arrangements can oe.maae,
of "running" him for the presidency at
the annual meeting in. January. Should
Mr. McLeod consent to be a candidate,
there will be -opposition in the field
against him, and that, too, in addition
to President Wilbur, as it is claimed
that the presidency of the Lehigh Valley
has been offered to a well known gen
tleman of Philadelphia, by some said
to be John Wanamaker, who Is regard
ed as Indifferent or hostile to Interests
with which Mr. McLeod has been
Identified In the past.
The presidents of the leading banks
in uotham nave of late discussed in
formally the necessity for and the wis
dom of reducing the rate of interest
allowed by them on out-of-town bank
balances on acount of the plethora of
money at that center and tha lack of
demand for it either by out-of-town
correspondents or city dealers. It is
likely that early next week an arrange
ment wll be made to reduce the rate
from lty and 2 per cent., the prevailing

enforced In all probability by the big

A Connelsvllle, Pa., dispatch says:
There was a gain of nearly 200 cars
In the coke output last week. All over
western Pennsylvania the demand for
coal and and coke Is strong. At the
McClure Coke company's office the man
ager said a steady improvement had
een noticed, the volume of bguslness
being much greater than a few months
ago. Part of this Increase he attri
buted to the reaction setting in after
the strike, but the greater percentage
was due to the regaining of confidence
and the general resumption of opera
tions in the mills throughout the coun
try." A Pittsburg special says: "A trust
is to be formed by the cold-rolled steel
makers of the United States. A meet
ing will be held in New York city next
Thursday to organize the pool. Every
manufacturer of cold-rolled steel in
the United States has been Invited to
send representatives to It. It Is pro
posed to form an organization that
will have power to regulate and main
tain prices and prevent cutting by en
tering into an agreement under which
price cutters can be punished by the
mposition of a penalty."
MINOR INDUSTRIAL NOTES:
The1 Indianapolis, Decator and West

The report that the Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania has never declared a dlvl
dend which had not been earned.
The Canadian Pacific has1 put In effect

The Lehigh Valley Coal company
which has taken charge of the Pardee
collieries, has issued an order that all
employes can obtain coal at $2 per ton.
Heretofore and under th ; old manage
ment only those living In company
houses could buy coal at this price.
Th.e New York Central has made pub

Sept. 30, showing a decrease In gross
earnings of $1,371,025.53: decrease in op
eratlng expenses, $1,153,330.53; the net

The company officials say, however,
that they will not be able to hoist coal
before April 1.
Four million dollars has been raised
to complete the Kansas City, Pitts-
burg and Gulf to Sabine Pass, Gulf of
Mexico. It will be an alr-llne road
from Kansas City to that point, and 300
miles the shortest route. While run
ning through . unoccupied territory
much of the distance, it will, neverthe
less, be, in some extent, a competitor of
the Missouri, Kansas and Texas,
The presidents have decided to create
rate inspectors at Western trunk-line
terminals In hopes of thus relieving
the demoralized condition of east-bound
rates. They will be charged with the
task of determining any Irregular rates,

New York, Nov. 9. Today's record at
the Stock exchange shows the total
transactions in stocks to be 285,000
shares. The increase In the trading
was the result of a better outBlde de
mand which was seized upon by the
professional operators arrayed on the
long side of the account to force their
opponents to cover. Having outside co
operation, they had no difficulty in es
tabllshlng prices right through the list.
It needs no prophet to predict a still
higher range if the public Interest In
today's speculation Is continued for a
little while longer, as the short Inter
esta are of heavy proportions, particu
larly In the grangers, coalers and Man
hattan. A rumor of a new government
bond issue stimulated the upward
movement In the late trading. An Issue
at this time would not only be welcomed
by home financiers generally, but would
have a good effect abroad.
The Improvement in prices ranged
from to 8 per cent. American Sugar,
Jeresy Central, the Grangers, Western
Union, Louisville and Nashville, Lack
awanna, General Electric, Lead, Mis
souri Pacific, and Chicago Gas. There
were reactions at intervals, but each
recession simply served to bring In
fresh buying orders and prices gradu
ally moved up to a higher level. The
closing was generally at the highest
figures of the day.

tlve stocks of the New York stock market
