THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE "WEDNESDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 21, 1894.
Industrial arid Commercial.
M1XE, MILL AXD RAILROAD.
Probably the most unique view yet
taken of the existing: "coal trade war"
Is the following one from the Philadel
phia Stockholder, which requires no
Opinion prevails among the larger com
panies that Individual operators, who are
being led by Coxe Bros. & Co., Into at
tempted demoralization of the coal trade,
will be the real sufferers; and it is hinted
that some of these operators, particularly
Coxe Bros. & Co., have an object In break
ing the market other than that which ap
pears on the surface. It Is, In brief, an
uttempt to force the larger companies
into purchasing their properties at a hlijh
price, and thus enable them to quit the
business. This, It is asserted, is the real
significance of the recent cut in prices by
Coxe Bros. & Co. It has been already re
ported that there is a probability that the
Jersey Central may secure control of the
firm's line of railroad, known as the Del
aware, Susquehanna and Schuylkill, and.
In addition, lease or purchase its coal
properties; and It is intimated also that.
-I Tl 1 .-I II 1 . I "
mw x-euns.vivuiua. ruurouu may uo exacuy
the same thing to strengthen its position
in the anthracite coal trade. There is,
however, one objection ,to bo offered
against this theory, if it is a theory,
namely, the agreement existing between
the Lehigh Valley Railroad company and
Coxe Bros. & Co. It provides that all the
coal shipped by the firm to tidewater shall
be over the Lehigh Valley for a period
of fifteen years from July 1, 1S04, and
that the firm, during that time, shall not
use, or seek to use, any other outlet to
tidewater. Should the Jersey Central or
the Pennsylvania secure control of Coxe
Bros. (& Co.'s property, therefore, it
would not affect the agreement, anil the
product of the mines, consigned to tide
water, would still have to be over the Le
high Valley. Whether, In view of this,
the Jersey Central and the Pennsylvania
will be deterred from making the pur
chase remains to be seen; but It is be
lieved that the trade would be greatly
benefited by the property fulling Into the
Pennsylvania's hands. H would mnke the
company such a factor in the trade that
it would probably 'abandon its "freo
lance" proclivities and aid the other com
panies In keeping the market In good
shape, while, at the same time, It would
remove a disturbing factor from the trade
the firm of Coxe Bros. & Co. That those
shippers have been a disturbing element
does not admit of doubt; lust week's cut
Is evidence of this. The whole situation,
as can be seen from the above. Is inter
esting, and before matters are straight
ened Important developments are likely.
Both Coxe Bros. & Co. and Stlckney
& Conynghani, representing the Penn
sylvlnia railroad, deny that they have
made a new cut of 40 cents per ton In
the price of coal. The Lehigh Valley
Coal company also denies that It lias
made any cut In coal prices, but says It
proposes to take care of Its trade. Coxe
Bros. & Co. deny the story current that
the Delaware, Susquehanna & Shuyl
klll railroad, owned by them, was to be
, leased by the Jersey Central and that
an inventory of the stock of the road
had already been taken by that com
pany. This was further corroborated
by the Lehigh Valley ofticials, who put
In evidence the traffic agreement made
between the two companies on July 1
last, under the terms of which the Dela
ware, Susquehanna & Schuylkill Is
bound for a tern? of fifteen years neither
to seek nor make an outlet for their coal
tonnage other than over the lines of the
The Philadelphia Inquirer says the
action of the Lackawanna road In the
near future Is awaited with apprehen
nlon, for all Indications point to the
probable unloading of a large quantity
of coal upon the tidewater market by
that company next month. At present
It is shipping Its coal west, but with
the close of lake navigation It may in
vade the- east, us Indeed Its officers
The Lehigh and Wilkes-Barre Coal
company will drive a tunnel from No.
4 Honey Brook slope east toward the
Yorktown workings, the object being
to discover. If possible, what seam of
coal Is back of the Buck Mountain, or
which underlies, If there be any at all.
Opinions vary as to the prospects of a
vein lying alongside or beneath the
Buck Mountain, and If It is situated In
the latter place It muat be of great
depth. Contractor Thomas Hughes
will put a force of men to work this
week to drive the proposed tunnel.
The advisability of an advance In
rates of freight on pig Iron has been
discussed by trunk line officials. The
present rates are on the basis of $4 per
ton from New York to Chicago, while
the usual charge In $5 per ton. In May
last with eighty-one furnaces In blast
the stock of pig Iron on hand In this
country was 900,000 tons. At this time
there Is an Increase of over 100 per cent.
In the number of furnaces In blast and
the stock on hand has fallen to approx
imately 500,000 tons. In view of the ap
parent Increase In the consumption and
the necessities of railroads to Improve
thlr earnings, some officials have ex
pressed the belief that this is the proper
time for a restoration of the old rates
on pig Iron.
MINOR INDUSTRIAL NOTES:
In New York the story continues to
find believers that John Wunarmiker
will be a candidate for the Reading
Officials of the Lake Shore say earn
ings are as large as they were last year,
and that westbound business Is con
A mammoth plant to wash the coal
from the big culm banks at Morris
Ridge colliery, near Centralla, Is to be
erected within a few weeks.
The Pennsylvania railroad reports
that the quantity of coal and coke
originating on and carried over its lines
east of Pittsburg and Erie for the year
thus far has been 13.7S9.213 tons, com
pared with 15,831,542 tons in the corre-'
spondlng period of 1893, a decrease of
2,062.329 tons, of which 10,861,480 tons
were coal, a decrease, of 1,405,2S9, tons,
and 2.927,733 tons coke, a decrease of
The Reading company has not met
the cut of 40 cents a ton In coal prices
made by Coxe Bros, and the Pennsyl
vania railroad shippers. The Reading
may reduce prices later, but it has not
been determined to do so yot.
Dispatches from various points along
the Lehigh alley announcing a reduc
tion in the number of train hands is not
confirmed at Philadelphia offices of the
company. It is stated that while waires
khave been reduced the ofliclals there
are not cognizant of any movement to
reduce the force.

New York, Nov. 20. -The opening of
the stock market was attended with
firmness and leading Kharv gained 4
to Hi. Lackawanna, Manhattan, the
Industrials and the Grangers were most
prominent In the Improvement. Shortly
after the first hour, however, the de
mand from the shorts for covering pur
chases ceased. There was, however,
no special activity in the market until
the last hour when a raid was made on
the grangers. The heaviness of the
grangers in the last hour led to Eelllng
of the general list and for a time the
whole market sagged. American sugar,
however, was the first to recover and
sold up to 90 ufter declining to b9.
Owing to the rally in sugar the market
left off steadier in tone. Net changes
show, losses of to 1 per cent. Total
sales were 108,fi(0 shares.
The range of today's prices for the nc
tive stock of the New York stock markot
are given below. The quotations are fur
