TIIE KCKAKTON TRIBUNE MONDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 2G, 1894.
MINE, MILL AXD RAILROAD.
Conflicting reports are In circula
tion as to what was done at laBt Fri
day's meeting of the railway presi
dents In Philadelphia, at which Mr.
Maxwell, of the Jersey Central; Mr.
Wilbur, of the Lehigh Valley; Mr. Har
ris, of the Reading, and Mr. Roberts,
of ' the Pennsylvania railroads, dis
cussed measures for the Improvement
of the antraclte coal trade. The In
quirer says not much progress was
made. It adds: "The Lehigh Valley
is tied up by Its contracts with Indi
vidual producers, which have not been
very profitable, and tlielr aggressive at
titude and possible appeal to the Inter
state Commerce commission are very
Important factors in the situation. It
Is understod that another meeting will
be held In New York, at which the
presidents of the anthracite companies
doing business In that city will be pres
ent." The Record prints a rumor that
the "great coal railroad companies had
agreed between themselves tu un aban
donment of the McLeod plan of buying
producers' coal and to the substitution
therefor of fixed rates of freight to all
points, thus leaving the sale price to
be Bettled by each producer with his
own customers, while the railroad com
panies will adjust freight rates so us to
absorb to themselves a greater profit
than they have been receiving within
the last few months. In this way it
was contended that the railroads could,
through united . action, speedily pro
duce a settlement of the disputes inau
gurated by individual operators." The
Times, after reviewing the subject at
length, announces that "on Tuesday
next the sales agents will hold their
regular monthly meeting In New York,
and it Is thought that some definite
plan of action will then be proposed,
the secret meetings of last week simply
being preparatory to a tlnul adjustment
of the trouble at the meeting." An
other Philadelphia paper says that
"the absence of representatives of the
Delaware, Lackawanna and Western,
and the Delaware and Hudson railroads
prevented the reaching of any agree
ment." Despite Mr. Wanamaker's qualified
denial, the Philadelphia Press reiter
ates that John Wanamaker is a candi
date for the presidency of the Lehigh
Valley railroad company, passively, If
not, actively. It says: "Demand Is to
be made within a few days upon the
Lehigh Valley Railroad company by
those who are opposed to the present
management for a copy of the stock
list, and In case it Is refused It is more
than probable that the courts will be
asked to Intervene. The request for
this list is to be made by parties In
this city and New York as well. In a
few days a meeting of a number of
prominent stockholders Is to be held for
the purpose of organizing a committee
with a view of making a fight In the
coming election." Notwithstanding
this, Scrantonlans who are close-to
Mr. "Wilbur ridicule the Idea that his
tenure of the oflice is In danger. There
are kickers In all companies, they Bay

motive, which, It is said, can make 100
miles an hour.
President Miller, of the St. Paul, in a
letter to the mayor of Dubuque, is Quot
ed as saying that earnings have fallen
off J2,2o7,000 in a little over four months,
"Unless something can be done to re
strain the Individual operators, who are
forcing low prices for coal In all mar
kets, all the anthracite roads will suffer
heavy losses" Is the way the Phlladel
phla Inquirer puts It.
A Buffalo dispatch Rays: "There Is a
boom in lake coal freights, which, is
without precedent for the last ten days
In November. There are 100,000 tons of
fering for shipment, nearly all for Chi
cago. There are thirty-seven vessels
under charter now."
Superintendent Lawall, of the Lehigh
and Wilkes-Barre Coal company, which
employs 8,000 men, says the anthracite
coal trade is Just beginning to feel the
effects of the Wilson bill. On account

The Lackawanna is shipping a good
deal of coal west, and will continue to
make shipments until lake navigation
closes, about Dec. 1. After that time a
large tonnage will have to be placed
somewhere, or else the output will have
to be restricted. It is this prospect, it is
fiiid, that keeps the dealers timid and
renders all efforts to place coal 'difficult,

fie of the A. S. Van Wlckle Coal com
pany was opened last week. The new
branch is about three miles In length
and connects with the Tamaqua, Hazle
ton and Northern railroad at Audenried
which was abandoned at the time of the
abrogation by the receivers of the Coxe
coal traffic lease. The Reading will re
oeive several hundred cars of coal dally
by this route.
The official vacancies made by the
resignation of Eckley B. Coxe, vice
president and manager of the collieries
and the Delaware, Susquehanna and
Schuylkill railroad, owned by Coxe
Bros. & Co., will be filled by Alfred Wal
ter, now general manager of the New
York, Lake Erie and Western railway
system. Mr. Walter was the late man
ager of the eastern division of the Balti
more and Ohio railroad, and a few years
ago was the superintendent of the Sun
bury division of the Pennsylvania rail
road. Mr. Walter's appointment will be
olllcially announced in a few days.
STOCKS AXD BONDS.
By the United Preas.
New York, Nov. 24. A more confident
tone characterized the dealings at the
Stock Exchange. The main factor was
the great success of the government
loan. A rumor that the anthracite coal
presidents hud held a conference In
Philadelphia yesterday and that an of
fensive and defensive alliance was con
templated, strengthened the coalers.
Reading was exceptionally weak on re
vival of reports about foreclosure. In
detail the markets opened firm and to
per cent, higher, but Northwest soon
developed weakness and sold down to 97,
the lowest of the week. Subsequently
the entire list moved up and closed firm;
notable advances were '1 per cent. In
Lake Shore. Net changes for the day
show gains of to 2 per cent.
The range of today's prices for the ac
tive stock of the New York stock market
are given below. The quotations are fur

PUMPING COAL TO MARKET.
The Plan Calculated to Avert Much Waste
and Secure Economy.
From the New York Sun.
The pumping of coal to market, by
crushing the stuff and mixing it with
water, Is now being discussed In the
scientific journals as a practicable
method, and It is suggested that not
merely the vast heaps of culni which
are now going to waste in the mining
regions, but, In fact, the whole output
of the mines, might thus be sent to the
consumer, the great recommendation
of the plan being its economy that Is,
coal could be "pumped to market," it
Is declared, for one-tenth the cost of
rail transportation, If there be a steady
demand; and still another gain, It Is
claimed, would be secured by the adop
tion of such a system, namely, that It
would be unnecessary to avoid produc
ing a large proportion of "slack," or
culm. The advocates of this plan esti
mate that coal could be reduced to dust
for from three to five cents a ton, and
washed free from pyrites, slate, and
other Impurities for five cents more, this
latter processalso leaving It In a greatly
improved condition and Increasing Its
market value. Thus prepared the plan
is to mingle the material with its own
weight of water, and then .force It
through pipes as is practiced with oil.
It Is assumed that coal; being .lighter
than most other minerals, and but little
heavier than water, would remain in
suspension easily, absence of grit would
prevent erosion of the pipes, and noth
ing of value could be withdrawn from
the coal by soaking. Moist coal, when
exposed to the air, deteriorates rapidly
and Is liable to spontaneous combus
tion, but so long as the fuel is kept un
der water In settling basins these draw
backs would not be experienced; If not
to be used at once, the coal would be
stored In this way, and stirred up again
before pumping to consumers.
