Tho Committee's Circular.
The circular issued by the committee
Is as follows:
To the Stockholders of the Lehigh Val
ley Hallroad Company:
Uear Sirs At a meeting of Influential
Stockholders of your company held in this
city, Dec. 7, we were appointed a commit
tee to solicit proxies to be voted at the
annual meeting of the company In oppo
sition to the present management.
As is already well known to you, tha
company after thirty-live years of suc
cessful operation has been dropped from
the list and lost Its Btandlng as dividend
payer, and yet we are unable to obtuln
from the ofllcera of the company proper
statements as to the linnnclal condition
and prospects of tho company.
A complete statement of assets and lia
bilities, to our knowledge has never been
Issued, but from tho figures reported by
tha company we And that It has outstand
ing a large floating debt. We pass no
opinion on the conduct of tho present
management. Comment is unnecessary
so long as you are face to face with the
salient facts that the company pays no
dividends and barely earns its fixed
charges. The forceful eloquence of such
pregnant results teaches Its own humil
iating lesson and Imposes the Imperative
necessity of prompt and concerted action
for the defense of your vested rights and
the protection of your property Interests.
It Is proposed that on receipt of a suf
ficient number of proxies a public meet
ing of stockholders be called, to deeido
upon such a ticket, and which shall have
the support of a majority of the stock
holders at the coming annual election,
Unless you Join with us In prompt ac
tion, we run the risk of another year of
tho present administration.
It Is hoped that you will Immediately

An advertisement which appears In a

l,4.ri0 loads last year. The coal deposition
In tho river amounts to thousands of tons
yearly and the amount Jigged can be es

there being two steam Jiggers In operation

Art Important' opinion on roal leases was
hunde-t down by Judge Woodward, of Lu
lerne county, Tuesday. In 1879 the heirs
of Hcndrfnk H. Wright leased to the Le
high and Wllkes-Harre l onl company
about seventy-five acres of coal land In
Plymouth, said leuso to continue until all
the merchantable coal should be mined,
royalty to be 25 cents per ton, with a
Held minimum annual royalty of W.000.
This was puid until July, lm. when tho
company refused to make further pay
ments, alleging that the minimum roy
alties already paid aggregated more than
all the coal covered by the lease. The
heirs determined to forfeit the lease.
The report of the master was to the ef
fect that plaintiffs had mined 79,000 tons
and has paid for 140,000 tons, had paid for
8,691 tons more than was mlnable und'ir
the tract, that the grant was a sale of
ull the .coal . in the ground and the $1,000
In annual payments was the purchase
money, and had bcon all paid and there
could be no forfeiture, that plaintiffs are
entitled to a reasonable time to take out
th remaining coal without further pay
ments. Therefore, that defendants be re
strained from forfeiture of lease or pre
vention of mining. Judge Woodward de
cree that failure of coal does not dls
tharge (lessee from payment of rent.
The obligation means what It says. It
Is therefore decreed that the finding of
the master be overruled, the prayers of
the bill refused and the bill be dismissed
at the cost of the plaintiffs ,

Patterson bill when It reaches that boilv.
In the afternoon Sugar loomed Into prom
inence, and on a more active business the
price rose to SWVi, ex-dlvldend of 3 per
cent. The rise near the close was due to
the announcement that the senate had
refused to take up the houso free sugar

the property. The market closed very

Washburn-Crosby Co. wish to assure their many rat
rons that thev will this year hold to their usual 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 are
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
