BUSINESS JDFTHIS WEEK
Dun Says That Some Exports of Gold
May Be Expected.
CERTAIN INDUSTRIES ACTIVE
Iron Is in Good Demand and Production.
I'pon the Whole, Is Increasing, but
Prices Are Not What They
Ought to 11c.
By the United Press.
New York, Nov. SO. The complete
aueooss of the government loan has not,
fcuys Dun, perceptibly effected business,
ncr prevented an advance of foiviKii
xchi!nge near to the expiating point.
Pome exports erf pold are not improva
ble. Meanwhile domestic trade and l;i-dur-tiy
have not been little influenced
by the heavy defalcation In one bank
and minor disorders in two others, uni
ty the failure of the Erie railway to
meet interest on Its bonds. The clos-?
of sugar rellneries will diminish the
Industrial force more than it Is in
creaHec' by the resumption of the lieth
luhem Steel works and a few other
concerns. The controlling fact Is that,
although In two instances wages have
been increased, the earnings of the
working force and its purchasing
power are not on the whole enlarging
at present, and prices of the chief farm
products do not materially improve.
Stock Market Is Disappointing.
The stock market disappoints those
who reckoned on Improvement after the
sale of bonds. The average for railroad
stocks has declined :2 cents per share
and for trust stocks J1.93. The great in
dustries fairly maintain the production
previously reported, but cannot be ex
pected to increase at this season. A
few more iron works have gone Into
uperation, and the demand is reported
larger, but there Is distinct weakness In
prices, especially at Pittsburg, and bes
eemer Iron, billets, nails and some
structural forms are quoted lower. The
rail combination has agreed to a reduc
tion of $2 per ton for the. next year.
Coke contracts are being made at cur
rent rates. The shoe Industry continues
to do remarkably well for the season,
and the prospect for the spring business
Is fairly good.
In textile manufactures there is more
Blrength In print clothes, but other cot
tons are somewhat Irregular and
weaker, and the woolen manufacturers
still receive some orders for winter
Roods. Money commands better rates
ince the sale of bonds, but there is
scarcely any Improvement In commer
cial or Industrial demands and the flow
of currency hitherward Is as large as It
has been at any time since September.
The failures this week have been In
the United States 2X9 against 271 last
year, and In Canada 30 against 48 last
FOREST FIRES RAG I Mi.
Tracts of Woodland on .Mountains Near
Shamokin Arc Destroyed.
By tho United Tress.
Philadelphia, Nov. 30. A special to
the Evening Telegraph, from Shamo
kin, Pa., says that destructive forest
fires are burning on the Line and
Henry mountains, and although every
possible means to extinguish them is
being made by the coal companies own
ing the land, the liames continue to
The best the fire fighters could do
was to keep the flames from spreading.
On the Line mountain no headway
could be made against the Are, It Is
apparent that the entire tracts of wood
land on he mountains will be de
stroyed.. ' How the fires originated Is

By the United Press.
Montreal, Nov. 30. One of the wild
est maniacs ever brought to Longue
Point Asylum was well-dressed Miss
Ialonde, of St. Polycarpe, who yester
day screamed, danced and wept alter
nately In her ravings because N. .Per-
rier, of this city, had jilted her,

EHPEROR CHARLES II,
Accompanied by half the nobility of
Austria, went to the Carlsbad Sprude
Springs for the recovery of his health
Six thousand six hundred horses, so
the town records say, were necessary
to convy the company to the place.
The virtues of the water Is as great
at the present day as it was in the
time of Charles II, and although the ex
pensc attached to a journey thither is
not as great now as it was then, we
are not all wealthy enough to under
take it For such the virtue of the
Carlsbad Spring is extracted. The
Carlsbad Sprudcl Salt, obtained by
evaporation, containing all the solid
constituents of the water, can be ob
taincd at any drug store.
It Is the very best remedy for catarrh
of the stomach, constipation, liver an
kidney troubles, gout, rheumatism, etc,
lk sure to obtain the genuine imported
artich, which must have the signature
of "hlsncr & Mendclson Co., Sole Agts,
New York, .' on every package.
The Delano shops are working
The Reading's Coleralne colliery ton
nage Is Increasing rapidly.
It Is predicted that the Jersey Central
will this year earn 4 per cent.
The Heading Is credited with having
1,000,000 tons of unsold coal on hand.
The big Johnstown, O., anti-steel
trust mill Is almost ready for operation.
So Is the Denver mill.
President Wilbur says the Lehigh
Valley stock list will be ready about
Dec. 10. It will hold 9,000 names.
The Laurel Hill breaker, near Hazlo-
ton, has been overhauled until it is
now one of the best In the regeon.
The Pennsy Is preparing to build a
new branch railroad into the rich bi
tuminous coal territory of Somerset
Those who know deny that President
Sloan Is out of sympathy with the
movement to call a halt on the coal
Edward Walters was on Thursday of
ficially inducted Into the ofllce of presi
dent of the Delaware, Susquehanna and
The officials of the Silver Brook Coal
conmpany are preparing to shut down

Contractor Fox has completed a lofty
plane at the Honey Brook No. 3 strip
ping, which will be utilized for the pur
pose of hoisting coal by the Lehigh and
Wllkes-Barre Coal company.
During the past season POO canal
boats were employed on the Delaware
and Hudson canal. The total tonnage
for 1S94 is 668,108, total tonnage for lS'JH,
700J03. showing a decrease of 132,7!i5
tons for 1X94.
Philadelphia Inquirer: "Under all
the circu mis lancets the reported ad
vance In coal prices Is a force only ex
ceeded In Its blind defiance of absolute
facts by the determination to 'restrict
the December output to 2,fjOO,000 tons."
In addition to the action of the sales
agents last Tuesday In determining
upon restriction and fixing the circu
lar rates, it was also decided to re
quest the Anthracite Individual Oper
ators' association to withdraw their
resolution of several days ago, request
ing the Lehigh Valley Coal company
to equalize its line and tide prices.
And now it is the coke producers who
are "getting together." The Informa
tion comeB from an official high In the
H. C. Flick Coke company, that the
price of coke Is to be advanced the
first of next year, or within the next
few weeks. The quoted present price
is $1 a ton, but this figure has been
shaded to 90 cents In some cases. The
advance will be $1.25 at least and per
haps 10 or 1" cents higher. In conse
quence of the sliding scale now In
vogue, the wages of the men will in
crease In proportion.
Saward: "With the small sizes of an
thracite so plentiful as they are, and
offered at so low a price, they become
formidable rival to soft coal. This is
particularly the case In the New York
and New England markets. At so
many places there are ordinances
against the use of soft coal, the electric
and other lines of transit are growing
customers for 'buck.' The cleanliness
Is greatly in its favor and now comes
the further possible cheapness, and
there are likely to be some Important
developments in tills branch of the
trade next year."
This remarkable tale bears a Mauch
Chunk date line: "A corps of sixteen
engineers has been at work here for a
week surveying through Carbon county
the line of the Atlantic and Paclllc
Railway Construction company, char
tered in the state of Illinois and sup
posed to be backed by a powerful Eng'
llsh syndicate. The railway Is to be an
air line across the continent from New
yorK to san Francisco, and passes
through Chicago, which city will be
brought within thirteen hours of New
York, and San Francisco forty-five
hours of New York. The English syn
dicate, it Is said, will take $ir0,000,000
worth of the bonds, and have placed
a bill in the hands of Congressman
Chillis, of Illinois, asking the govern
ment's Indorsement of the bonds, In
return for which the railway company
is to turn over 51 per cent, of its capi
tal stock to the government. Tho sur
vey is now completed from the Mis.
slaslppl to the Delaware river, and the
construction is to begin next spring

and Chicago finished within five
STOCKS AXD BONDS.
By the United Press.
New York, Nov. ). Tho published state
ment of President Havemeyer, of the
American Sugar Refining company, an
nouncing that owing to a lack of orders,
me rennerics would Le closod led to a
grand rush to sell the certificates at the
opening of business today. An impression
also prevailed that thu directors will cut
the January dividend at their meeting
early next week, and this accelerated the
downward movement, There was a tre
mendous crowd of brokers around the
Sugar post at the opening and nearly ev
ery one of them appeared to have sidling
orders and the stock was depressed to
83't, after which, under purchases to
cover Bhovt contructs, a recovery to 84!i
ensiled. In some quarters there was i
disposition to criticise President Have
meyer, and It was stated that his action
at this time was due mainly to a desire to
Influence congress and head off the move
ment to place sugar on the free list. In
dependent rellners, however, assert th.it
the business has been anything but profit
able of late and that Havemeyer was lust
Ifled by trade conditions In closing up the
refineries. Distillers was another weak
spot In the early trading, and on the un
nouncement of the proposed reorganize
tlon the price dropped from 9 to 7. Chi
(ago Uas was next taken In hand and un
der pressure of long stock fell 2 to C'J,
The Heaviness or me industrial rtoiiii
was due in a great measure to a rumor
that there had been a defalcation In one of
the trusts. The railway lists were wenk
at the start, but then Improved Vi to
Subsequently the selling of the Grangers
was resumed on a large scale. On the Oc
tober statement of the Burlington and
Qulncy It wag discovered that the
road had been operated for 49.28 per cent,
and this created a more bearish feellmr,
The selling which followed carried Bur
lington down 114, St. Paul 1, Northwost
, Rock Island . New Jersey Central
was heavy and fell 2 points, Manhattan
sold down l'i, Western Union 1. The
market closed steady at net declines rang
