PRESIDENTS DIDN'T MEET.
They Will, However, Uct Together Again
Within a few Days, and un Agreement
Is Regarded us Highly Probable.
Speclul to the Scrtinton Tribune.
Philadelphia, Dec. 4. It was an
nounced last week that a meeting of
the anthracite carrying railroads would
ho held i) ll Monday in New York, simul
taneously with the meeting of the coal
sales agents. This wus, Indeed, the
original Intention, but the former meot-
hiL'. for some reason, has been deferred
for a few days, at the wish of President
Roberts, of the Pennsylvania railroad,
who is studying the anthracite situa
tion with more than common care.
Those who know Intimate that Mr.
Roberts is more disposed at this minute
than he has been at any prior time to
join with the other coal-owning und
coal carrying railroads In a genuine
restriction of next year's output In
conformity with thu needs of the
market. The policy of the Pennsylvania
railroad hcretofoie has been to pay lit
tle or no attention to restrictive agree
ments; but a change from this policy,
In the near future, is regarded by well
Informed men In the coal trade in this
city as possible, If not probable.
crease of 1,394,909 tons, and 3,140,060
tons coke, a decrease of 457,892 tons.
It is reported that the Wllkes-Barre
and Eastern will. In the spring, extend
Its line from Stroudsburg to Baylors
burg, a distance of ten miles; where It
would connect with the Bath branch of
the Central and give ft entrance into
the entire slate region of Northampton
and Lehigh counties. Below Wind Gap
the rond would connect nlso with the
famous Boston and Poughkeepsie line.
In the event of Mr. Larval! going to
the Lehigh Coal and Navigation com
pany, the Hazleton Sentinel - thinks
that Albert Lelsenrlng will likely be
called to the management of the Le
high and Wilkes-Barre. The late E. B.
Lelsenrlng was desirous during hfs Ufa
of making Mr. Lawall vice president
of the Coal and Navigation company
and relieving him of the, detail work in
that way. The directors regretted that
such an arrangement was not made be
fore the death of the president. Mr.
Lawall Is probably the best informed
man on mining affairs in the region and
obviously the best man for the place.
The Ontario," Carbondale and Scran-
ton railway, operating between Scran-
ton and Jackson, N. Y., a distance of
fifty-three miles, has been certified to
the attorney general by Secretary
Stewart as liable to the fine of $5,000
provided for by the act of May, 18S9, for
the neglect or refusal of such corpora
tions operating In Pennsylvania to
muke report unnually to the depart
ment of Internal affairs on or before
Aug. 31 of their operations fur the fiscal
yeur ending June 30. This is the first
time the department has certified a de
linquent corporation for the Imposition
of this penalty. The attorney general
Is expected to at once Institute proceed
ings against the company. ,

TO our patrons:
Washburn-Crosby Co. wish to nssure their many pat
rons that they will this year hold to their Ubual custom
of milling STRICTLY OLD WHEAT until the new crop
is fully cured. New wheat is now upon the market, and
owing to the excessively dry weather many millers arc
of the opinion that it is already cured, and in proper
condition for milling. Washburn-Crosby Co. will take
no risks, and will allow the new wheat fully three
months to mature before grinding.
This careful attention to every detail of milling has
placed Washburn-Crosby Co.'s flour far above other
