THE RCEANTON TKIBUKE TUESDAY MORKING. XOVEMBEH 20, 1894.
MINE, MILL AND RAILROAD.
The statement of shipments -of an
thracite coal for the month of October
shows a total of 4,136,859 tons, or only
388,804 tons less than were shipped In
the same month last year. The Wyom
ing region led with the largest reduction,
212,895 tons, while the Lehigh region
was only short 41,024 tons of Its ship
ments in October, 18M. The decrease in
the Schuylkill region was 134,883. The
October decrease makes the total reduc
tion for the ten months 1,974,092, the to
tals being 33,773,551 for 1894 and 35,747,
644 tons for 1S93, The stock of coal on
hand at tidewater shipping points on
Oct. 31 was less than on Sept. 30 by
80,284 tons, the decrease being from 812,
649 tons Sept. 30 to 732,365 tons on Oct.
81. Owing to the scarcity of curs, total
shipments for the week ended Nov. 10
amounted to only 954,659 tons.
Says the Philadelphia Press: "In New
York stove coal has been sold at about
J3.05a3.15 per ton, or 45 cents net below
circular, and there is continual cutting
of prices. In the meantime the com
panles are sending coal to market with
out reference to the demand, and this
prevents free buying. When lake navi
gation closes a further break In prices
wll take place, unless the production Is
lessened. As It Is, there Is not one an
thracite coal carrying company which
has earned the dividend it has been pay
ing this year."
The coke production and output has
more than doubled In the past four
months, and the indications are that the
year's output will exceed that of 1893
nearly half a million tons, In spite of the
paralytic effect of a six-months' strike.
The September trade was big, yet the
output for October is 65,000 tons great
er. At this rate, the year's output will
run to 5,500,000 tons. This has been ex
ceeded but three times In the history of
the Connellsvllle region. In 1S89 the out
put was 6,825,826 tons; In 1890, it was
6,221,518 tons, and in 1892 It ran up to
6,300,691 tons, though the price was not
so good as In 1890, when It averaged
$2.08 per ton. The worst feature of this
year's trade Is the price, which has been
ruinous. The average has not been
much, if any, over $1 per ton, and Is the
lowest average price that has ever pre
vailed. MINOR INDUSTRIAL NOTES:
The Wellman Iron and Steel plant at
Chester will be sold on Dec. 15.
E. E. Berlin has resigned as train

Expectations of an Instantaneous Im
provement In the Iron and steel trade
after the election have not been borne
out by the result. The business is still
limited In volume and shows a tendency
toward contraction rather than expan
sion. On and after Jan. 1 Drexel, Morgan
& Co. will be known as J. P. Morgan
& Co., and In Philadelphia as Drexel &

as Morgan, Harjes & Co.
According to the Philadelphia Record,
"the anthracite trade Is In a fairly good
condition, and Is said by Lackawanna
officials to be better than It has been for
a year or more." According to the Phil
adelphia Inquirer, "The anthracite coal
trade seems to be steadily growing
worse Instead of better." Another case
of great minds which disagree.
The Lehigh Valley management lias
ordered a rueductlon of 10 per cent, in
all salaries over 11,000 per annum, to
go Into effect Dec. 1. The order Is a
persuance of a general policy to reduce
expenses to the lowest limit consistent
with a proper administration of the
company's business. Wages and sal
aries less than $1,000 will not be dis
turbed. It has been currently reported for
some time past, that the Jersey Central
had made a complete Inventory of the
stock of the Delaware, Susquehanna &
Schuylkill. Only last week, says the
Hazleton Sentinel, Mr. Twining, the di
vision superintendent, walked over the
entire road and made a close and care
ful Inspection. Among railroad men
the belief is generally that the, Central

quehanna & Schuylkill next month.

In the Philadelphia Inquirer's opinion,
the "threat of the Individual coal ope
rators In the Lehigh Valley district to
Invade the line markets is not consider
ed as meaning more than a declaration
that they want more money for their
coal. They are now paid for their coal
on the low basis ruling In the tidewater
market, while their product is actually
disposed of In the West or to the local
trade, where higher prices are obtained.
But little danger Is to be apprehended
on this score, as the companies will
never sacrlllce their local markets."
The Delaware & Hudson and Erie &
Wyoming rialroads have, says the
Wllkes-Barre Times, obtained a new
route for sending their coal quickly and
cheaply to tide water. Arrangements
have been made with theWllkes-Uarre
& Eastern road to transport the output
to New York. The Delaware & Hudson
is building a long branch to connect
with the Wilkes-Barre & Eastern, a
short distance up the line, while the
Erie & Wyoming will connect near
Plttston. The Wllkes-Barre & Eastern
railroad Is now hauling a tremendous
amount of coal over Its system.
Quite a different story from the fore
going Is this Ingenious solution by a
Philadelphia newspaper: "It is believed
that at the next Lehigh Valley meet
ing E. P. Wilbur will step down and
support Eckley B. Coxe for president.
The Lehigh Valley will absorb the Dela
ware, Susquehanna & Schuylkill and its
coal Interests, and the Individual Ope
rator's association. This reorganizing
will make the Lehigh Valley the com
manding figure in the coal trade and
with its splendid lake and tide term
inals and facilities for mining and hand
ling coal will place it In a position to
dictate terms to the other carrying com
panies." STOCKS AND BONDS.

Washburn-Crosby Co. wish to assure their many pat.
rons that thev will this vear 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 art
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 ha3
