THE SCR ANTON TRIBUNE FRIDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 10, 1894.
MINE, MILL AND RAILROAD.
The meaning of the sudden resigna
tion of Eckley B. Coxe from the presi
dency of the Delaware, Susquehanna
and Schuylkill, Railroad company, the
Coxe Bros Iron' Foundry and Manufac
turing company and the Cross Creek
Coal, company la thus explained; In a
Hazleton dispatch: "It Is known that
he had been for some time endeavoring
to shape these vast Interests so that a
proper division could be made in the
event of accident or death. The duties
devolving upon him have been tremen
dous, and together with Increasing en-1
terprlses he has been burdened and to
a degree hampered so that he was un
able to carry out some plans as orig
inally contemplated. The constant
spreading out of the Delaware, Susque
hanna and Schuylkill road has also de
manded more attention thun circum
stances would permit him to give. To
enable him to carry out the plans and
place his road among the strong
est coalers of the state it Is
said that this Btep was taken.
Alfred Waters, general manager
of the Erie and New York railroad,
has been appointed to succeed Mr. Coxe
as president. He will assume charge
Dec. 1. Mr, Waters is a practical rail
road man. The Delaware) Susque
hanna' and Schuylkill people have' for
months been busy making surveys and
securing the contour of the country
between Drlfton and Stroudsburg.
While no official announcement of the
Intentions of the company in this re
spect has been made, it is understood
that they will connect at Stroudsburg
with the Delaware, Lackawanna and
Western, thus giving them a direct line
to the coast. As it is at present they
practically control the coal tonnage of
the Lehigh region, and with such ad
ditional resources as this connection
would give them It would place the road
among the most Important entering the
Some one In the Philadelphia Bulletin
thus exhibits his knowledge of anthra
cite mining: "The greater economy In
the use of coal, and the fact that coal
dust is valuable as fuel, have brought
on a contention over the ownership of
the plies of culm or 'waste' coal which
have colelcted In the neighborhood of
the anthracite mines of the state. As
this 'waste' represents the coal for
Which the miners were not paid, their
wages being reduced in direct propor
tion to the amount of such 'waste' dis
covered in their share of the daily
mined article, it certainly seems that
morally it belongs to them. But the
ownership of It from a strictly legal
Standpoint Is another thing, and It Is
In this aspect that the mine owners re
gard the matter. The contention is an
other instance of the multiplying diffi
culties arising from the low rate of
wages paid the miners and the bitter
ness felt over the Introduction of great
hordes of Ignorant foreign labor In the
mines, and it is not likely to be settled
amicably, for It Involves a good deal of
money. The only square way to deal
with the subject, in the future, is for
the mine owners to pay the miners a
fair rate for the labor of mining the
culm and then to dispose of it them
selves to the best advantage they can.
It certainly is unfair to refuse both pay
and all share of ownership to the men
who practically produce the article in
marketable shape. Of course, in re-
gard to the culm already accumulated,
It will be difficult to settle with the
men now working, as the actual produ
cers of the 'waste' coal are for the most
part dead or have left the region." '
A recent decision rendered by the
supreme court of this state is of con
siuerable importance to railroads. The
capital stock of the Delaware, Susque
hanna and Schuylkill Railroad was val
ued for taxation at $2,000,000. The com-
pany had declared a dividend of 40 per
cent, upon $1,000,000 of capital stock and
made net earnings for the year of $523,
243. The commonwealth maintained
that the valuation should be $4,000,000,
and that the worth of the franchise
should be taken into consideration. The
supreme court has just upheld the state
in its view, and other railroads in this
state will have to conform to the deel
It Is expected that the Tresckow coal
washery, at present the property of the
Conlack Coal company, will change
hands on Dec. 1. A number of Wtlkes
Barre capitalists have been viewing
washery sites and determining the per
centage of coal In some of the slate
banks at the Yorktown and Tresckow
collieries. The Conlack washery was
thoroughly inspected, every piece of
machinery being examined. A well
founded rumor Is- that this party has
made a satisfactory offer for the pur
chase of the plant and the sale may be
closed within a few days or not later
than Dec. 1. This washery has been
idle for almost a year. If bought it
will be again started.

A contract for 1,400 new coal cars has
Just been placed by the E. P. Wilbur
Trust company, of Bethlehem, with two
car manufacturing concerns In this
state. They are for use on the Lehigh
Valley railroad, and will be of much
the same pattern as those in use on the
Delaware, Susquehanna and Schuylkill
(Coxe Bros. & Co. road.)
Shipments of Lykeus Valley coal over
the Summit Branch railroad for the
week ended Nov. 10 reached a total of
13,559 tons, against 11,491 tons for the
same week last year, an increase of

the shipments amounted to 4S8.329 tons,
a decrease of 69,966 tons compared' with
the corresponding period last year.
Shipments of bituminous coal over
the Huntingdon and Broad Top rull
road for the week ended Nov. 10 again
show a slight decrease; the total ton
nage was 41,414 tons, against 44,564 tons
for the corresponding period last year,
decrease of 3,149 tons. For the year
to thut date shipments aggregated 1,-
953,173 tons for the corresponding period
last year, a decrease of 183.327 tons.
During the present week nearly nil
the large boats on the lakes will be laid
up for the winter, and the railways will
have rates under their own control.
The past has been the most unprofitable
of many years to the boat owners,
many of the boats not having paid run
ning expenses! to say nothing of In
terest on the money Invested. There
are over $60,000,000 invested In lake
craft, and not one of the lines Is said to
have earned enough to pay a dividend

New York, Nov. la. Transactions at
the Stock exchange today footed up
201,000 shaes. Of this total Suirar fltt-
ured for 96,700 shares. The stock opened
higher, but the rise led to selling for
the long account and a reaction fol
lowed. The rise In the stock strength
ened the whole list. In the late trad
ing, however, a drive was made against
the anthracite coalers and sugars, the
whole market receding in sympathy.
The break In the coalers near the close
was due to a report that the price of
coal had been reduced 25 cents a ton.
The market closed weak. Net changes
show losses of M,aVi.

tive stocks of the New York stock market
