Is TIIE FCKANTOK TIfIJTJNE SATURDAY MOBNreGt. DECEMBER 1, 1894. 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 year. 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 rage. 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 not known. MANIAC ON WEDDING DAY. Because Jilted for a Rivul, Miss Lulonde Decumo Frantic. 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, On her wedding day, two weeks ago, ihe went wild when told that Periier had given her up and would wed a Miss Taylor instead. IS IT REALLY SETTLED? Report That Minister Gosling Quacked Just a Trifle Too Soon. By the United Press. London. Nov. 30. It Is reported that the Blueflelds incident has been settled ireat Britain having upon the repre. eentatlons of the United States ad mitted that Mr. Gosling, the British minister, exceeded his authority. The affair may lead to his recall. The sale of "Oiihf Pontile" Kna. 1 nml 8 commence today at 9 o'clock at, Tho jTiuune a business omce. 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. INDUSTRIAL TOPICS. The Delano shops are working full time. 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 county. Those who know deny that President Sloan Is out of sympathy with the movement to call a halt on the coal trade war. Edward Walters was on Thursday of ficially inducted Into the ofllce of presi dent of the Delaware, Susquehanna and Schuylkill railroad. The officials of the Silver Brook Coal conmpany are preparing to shut down No. 1 colllnry and evdry Indication seems to point to its total abandonment on Saturday. 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 the division between New York and Chicago finished within five years." 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 ing from H to 2. Total sales, 2G2.000 shares, of which 123,700 were Sugar. The range of today's prices for tho ac tive stocks of the New York stock market are given below.
