2 TITE SCBANTON TniBUNE-TniTRSDIVT MORN-Ia. XOYEMBER 29, 1894.
3IIXE, MILL AND RAILROAD.
One of the most Interesting equity
Bulls ever heard before the Luzerne
county courts Is now on before Judge
Rice, and bids fair to last several days.
It is the attempt of several farmers to
prevent the completion of the boring of
the great Jeddo tunnel. The plaintiffs,
"who are a dozen farmers from Schuyl
kill valley, are represented by Attorneys
John T. Lenahan and John Gorman, and
the defendants, the Jeddo Tunnel com
pany, are defended by ex-Attorney Gen
eral Palmer and F. W. Wheaton, of this
city, and Attorney Samuel Dickson, of
Philadelphia. For Beveral years the
work has been in progress. Men start
ed to bore a tunnel through Jeddo
mountain and it Is now complete. The
tunnel Is five miles long and cost about
$2,500,000. So exact were the calcula
tions that the main openings, after be
dng driven for two and a half miles
through the mountains, met within six
Inches of each other, and a bore hole
from the top of a mountain penetrated
the tunnel within the confines of a
small circle, drawn on the roof before
the boring was commenced. The tunnel
Is to drain the big Harleigh and Eber
vale mines, and numerous adjoining
workings which have been flooded and
useless for years. It will assure un out
put of millions of tons of coal and will
result In the re-building of a dozen. min
ing towns which twenty years ago were
populated and prosperous, but which
since the flooding of the mines huve
been practically deserted.
Everything was complete for the fir
ing of the blast which was to shatter the
walls separating the lower workings of
the mines from the tunnel and thus lib
erate the great quantities of water In
the mines when an Injunction was
nerved on the company by a number of
farmers to prevent them completing the
work, and it is this Injunction that Is
now being argued before Judge Hice.
The farmers all own line farms along
the banks of Butler Creek, from which
they get their water supply. The wat
er liberated from the mines would fluw
along this creek, and the farmers claim
as It contains a great deal of coal dirt
and Is sulphur water, that their farms
would be practically destroyed, and
they want the company to be restrained
from tapping the mines or else give
them proper compensation for their loss.
The case Is going on very slowly, as a
great many legal points are being ar
gued. So far. Dr. W. B. Schober, the
chemist at the Lehigh university; Pro
fessor Dean, of the Harry Hillman
academy, and Dr. Chambers, a special
ist of New York, have been examined
and have given expert testimony, and
William M. Jones, mining engineer, has
testified regarding the amount of coal
dust that would probably be washed
from the workings. The witnesses so
far agree that this farm land would be
practically destroyed for all farming or
pasture purposes. The company is
making a stubborn fight. '
The statement of earnings of the
two Heading companies for October Is
rather better than was to be expected.
In view of the unsatisfactory condition
of the coal trade. The entire anthracite
output In the month was 4,136,859 tons,
as against 4,525,663 tons In October last
year, and while It Is not known how the
output was divided, yet It Is entirely
safe to assume that the Reading sus
tained Its full share of the decrease.
Then again the receipts from the sale
of coal were materially diminished, by
the low prices prevailing. This drawing
for determining the miners' wages gave
the average prices at Schuylkill Haven
during the month as $2.26, as against
$2.60 In October last year. It is not
Hurprlslng, therefore, that with less
coal to sell and with prices probably
30 cents a ton lower the Coal and Iron
company shall make a bad showing,
and the report shows a decrease in
profits of $416,000. The railroad com
pany did excellently well In view of the
decrease coal tonnage. Still the result
of the two companies Is a decrease In
net earnings of $559,628.20, a decrease
In charges of $48,11911.48 and a
decrease in surplus of $310,636.72.
This can, says the Philadelphia
Inquirer, only be called bad,
although fully accounted for by the
explanations given above. For eleven
months of the fiscal year the net earn
ings show a decrease of $1,324,870, the
charges an Increase of $82,280.45 and the
surplus a decrease of $1,407,150.
The Hendrlck Manufacturing com
pany of Oarbondale has recently com
pleted an extensive system of automatic
sprinklers In the mounting, pattern 'and
carpenter shops of the Scranton Stove
works, for the better protection of the
premises against fire, similar to that in
use in its own shops. Some idea of Its
magnitude can be obtained, says the
Herald, from the statement that It
Included about 900 sprinklers, each pro
tecting an area of from eighty to 100
square feet and that, about 7,500 lineal
'A STUDY. OF FACES,
no matter where you go, will show
you how many, many people ought to
be taking Carlsbad Sprudel Salt.
There's the thin, peaked face that
tells of perverted nutrition. There's
the fat, puffy face of flatulent obesity.
There's the otherwise pretty face that's
marred by skin disorders and erup
tions; the yellow, haggard face of the
dyspeptic; the dull, drawn faces of
sufferers from stomach and liver and
All these people need the Carlsbad
Sprudel Salt It goes to the root of
the whole matter. It purifies the
blood, dissolves obstructions, clears the
system, and cures permanently, in
natural way, every derangement of the
stomach, liver and kidneys. Beware
of the many imitations sold as "ira
proved" or "artificial" Carlsbad Salt
These generally consist only of ordi
nary Seidlitz Powder and Glauber Salt,-
sold by unscrupulous dealers upon the
reputation of the genuine, Carlsbad Salt.
The only genuine imported Carlsbad
Salt has the signature of ."Eisner &
Mendelson Co., Agents, New York," on
feet of wrought Iron pipe was used in
placing them. This system of sprink
lers is supplied with wajer from two
sources, a 6-Inch 'main connecting with
the system of the Scrantpn Gas and
Water company at one end of the works,
and a 4-Inch main connecting with the
system of the Dunmore Gas and Water
company, at the other, the former un
der ninety pounds and the latter under
140 pounds pressure; a series of auto
matic check valves control the sup
ply, so that either system Is called into
play whenever the heat caused by an
lnclplents fire melts the solder on one or
more of the sprinkler heads, which thus
become unseated, splashing the water
against a splash plate on the sprinkler
and throwing It against the ceiling and
walls. The melting point of the solder
is at 140 degrees Fahrenheit. For the
further protection of the premises, five
standard double-nozzle Matthews' fire
hydrants were placed outside, but In
the Immediate vicinity of the buildings;
for supplying which about 1,800 feet of
6-Inch pipe were laid. These two sources
of supply guarantee positive service at
all times. By the construction of this
protective system, the Scranton Stove
works has materially decreased the
premium rate, so much so that the cost
of the system, which ran Into several
thousand dollars, will revert to them in
the saving effected, to say nothing of
the Increased security against fire,
which such a system affords, and which
every prosperous concern requires.
MINOR INDUSTRIAL NOTES;
Coal tonnage over the Reading rail
road for the week ended Nov. 24 de
creased 11.763 tons; for the year to date
It decreased 855,215 tons.
Citizens of Rlegelsvllle have sub
scribed stock to build a factory for
manufacturing window screens which
will employ about fifty hands.
Vice" President Voorhecs, of the Read
ing, Is quoted as saying that Port Read
ing, the line built from Port Richmond
to tide water, will earn Its expenses and
fixed charges this year. :
The work of filling the burning Luke
Fldler mine at Shamokln with water
is not progressing very rapidly at pres
ent. Excavations are already under
way at the head of the new shaft for
the foundation for a pair of big engines
that will be used to pump water out
of the mine ufter It is believed that the
lire has been extinguished. The four
new tubular boilers have been finished
and the colliery will have an abundant
supply of steam on hand when the
work of pumping out the water begins.
STOCKS AND BONDS.
By the United Press.
New York, Nov. 23. The opening
dealings at the stock exchange were
characterized by a good deal of firm
ness owing mainly to an advance of 1
per cent. In Northwest to 90. The rise
In this stock was attributed to pur
chases of about 10,000 shares for the ac
count of a leading bear operaitor. The
general list fulled to sympathize to any
extent, improving only and per
per cent. London took several thous
and shares of St. Paul and other stocks.
The rise only seemed to serve to stimu
late those operaitlng for a decline to
renewed efforts and In a short time the
whole list developed weakness. The
decline was gradual at first, but as the
absence of support became more marked
the downward movement gathered
The apprehension of a most unfavora
ble statement of earnings for October
by the Burlington and the rise In
exchange induced selling for these ac
counts and the fact that the success of
the government loan has utterly failed
to stimulate speculation also acted as
a damper upon the market. Later In
the day a junior gained currency that
the sugar trust had ordered all the
refineries in the combination closed, and
a sharp drive was made against that
Btock, which dropped from 89 to 86.
Officials stated, after the close of busi
ness, that It was not true and the re
fineries would be closed only over the
Thanksgiving holiday. After Sugar the
greatest declines were; 1 In Dela
ware and Hudson; 1"& in Lead; 1 In
Northwest; 1 in. Gas; 14 Jn St. Paul;
and 1 in Rock Island; In Burlington;
1 In Lake Shore; and 2 In Michigan
Central. Final quotations showed a re
covery of 14 to 1 per cent. Total sales,
The range of today's prices for the ac
tive stock of the New York stock markot
are given below. The quotations are fur

A VICTORY FOR PASKOLA.
It Receives tho Official Endorsement
of Eminent Experis and a Jury
of Representative Citizens.
The suit brought by Ohio's fuod com
missioner against a Cincinnati drug
gist for gelling Paskola on the ground
that It was nothing but glucose, result
ed In a great victory for Paskola and a
verdict against the state.
During the course of the trial Pro
fessor Shaller, of the University of Cin
cinnati, testified that Paskola was not
glucose, and even If It was, It' would
be harmless. He also bore witness to
Its activity as a digestive agent.
Professor William Dlckore, of the
Miami college, testified to the same
facts. So did Professor Schmidt, the
chemist of the board of health; Profes
sor William Hoffman and others.
A practical test was made In court,
showing the digestive action of Pas
kola on eggs and meats of various
kinds, whereas glucose under precisely
the same conditions produced no effect
This test but confirmed the experts'
statements that proved Paskola to be
of great value in Indigestion and wast
This verdict disposes of the malicious
attack that has been made against Pas
kola by Interested rivals, and suits have
now been brought against the proprie
tors of a well known emulsion of cod
liver oil for having given wide circula
tion to a false formula and other mis
representations regarding It.
The animus of this attack will be the
better understood when It is stated that
Paskola is being largely used In the
place of cod liver oil.
