mercantile ax which they now pay,
and not thefbrokers' tax.
The building and loan associations of
the state will make a vigorous resist
ance against the passage of the new
revenue bill formulated by the state
tax conference, which levies a. tax of
one mill on the capital stock of such
corporations. The local associations all
over the state are organizing to op
pose this feature of the proposed net
and the Indications are that thvy will
succeed. The bulk; lug and loan asso
ciation league of Pennsylvania, of
which Michael J. Blown, of Philadel
phia, ia the leading spirit and secretary,
has issued a circular to the members
of the legislature urging them to vote
against the bill unless this provision is
utrlcken out. The league was success
ful In securing an amendment to the
present income tax when it was pend
ing in congress exonerating building
tind loam associations from the pay
ment of tax. The state associations
are also urging the passage of the
Oobln banking bill, which regulates
foreign foundling and loan associations.
Colomlel A. K. McClure. of the Phila
delphia, Times, will deliver an address
In the hall of the house on Tuesday
evening of next week on the life und
death of the late Governor Curtln,
Bill to Tux Aliens.
Repeated efforts have been made in
this etatei by representatives in the leg
islature of the patriotic societies and
labor organlzo'Llons to. secure the enact
ment of a law taxing aliens, but the
apposition to such measures has always
been successful in preventing theLr pas
eage. After a bitter light such a bill
was put through the house at the last
session and then defeated in the senate.
These futile t'fforts have not discour
aged the advocates of such legislation,
bind a tax.orn foreigners has leen Intro
duced In the present legislature by
(Representative Kiddle, of Bedford, and
will be considered by the general Judi
ciary committee when that body re
convenes. The bill provides that every male
alien who has resided In the state three
months shall pay a tax of $3 a year.
At the expiration of five years, If he has
not taken out naturalization papers,
the tax Is to be Increased to $3. The
ax is to be kept by the county treas
urer separate and distinct from other
county taxes. It is made the duty of
the county treasurer and the county
commlssoners to dstribute this fund
once a year to the townships, boroughs
and cities for the purpose of improving
and maintaining the public highways,
eueh division to be made according to
the number of mile of public roads or
streets embraced within thelrrespectlve
The proposed act requires street com
missioners, supervisors or other of
ficers having charge of roads to make
a statement annually, before the first
Jionday of May, the number of miles
of road In their respective districts,
and furnish the county treasurer with
a copy from which to make a distribu
tion of the tax. Employers of aliens
who have resided In the state three
months and who change their resi
dence are required by the bill to re
tain from their wages the amount of
the tax, provided the alien has nut a
receipt of 'having paid Such tax, and
pay to the collector.
Employers neglecting to collect the
tax are mado Individually liable for
Its payment. It Is also made obliga
tory on the part of such employers to
furnish a list of their alien workmen
who have not paid' tax, or do not have
a receipt, quarterly on the first Mon
days of April, July, October und Janu
ary with an affidavit as to Its correct
ness. The assessors are required to
place these lists upon the assessment
Those who have examined the bill
claim It Is superior to any of the kind
ever presented to the legislature, and
It is thought It will become a law with
out serous objection from any source.
Compulsory Education prospects.
The house committee on education
will take up consideration at Its meet
ing on Tuesday, the two compulsory
education bills. The general Impres
sion Is that both will be brought out
of committee In order that they may
be printed for the Information erf the
members and then re-committed. If
this Is done It Is thought the bills will
be consolidated and a measure agreed
upon by the committee that will bo
satisfactory to the friends of repre
sentatives Farr,: of Lackawanna, and
Beyfert, of Lancaster, the champions of
Mr. Seyfert has perfect confidence In
has scheme, which, he Bays, Is prefer
nbla to that of the member from Lack
awanna. "I am not posing as the man
who is to be mada famous because he
Rot a compulsory education bill
'through the legislature," said Mr, Sey
fert, "but I am working for It on prin
ciple. There was no prospect of gettlnqr
such a law during the Pattlson admin
istration, because the governor Is op
posed to compulsory . education and
would not sign such a measure. Things
ore different now. Both bills will be
brought out of committee. I hope the
house will accept mine. If It passes, I
am sure Governor Hastings will op
Mr. Farr's bill Is almost identical
WPSVallrr ii Trf re
with that Introduced by him In the
last two sessions, and vetoed by ex-Governor
Pattlson. That drafted by Mr.
Seyfert provides that parents or guard
ians must send children between the
ages of eight and fifteen years to school
at least sixteen consecutive weeks In
each school year, provided that the act
does not apply to any child that has
been or is being educated otherwise in
the common school Kngllsh branches."
i An Important feature of this bill not
in Mr. Farr's Is the clause, "The super
intendent of public Instruction may
withhold one-4ialf of all public school
moneys from any city or district, which
In his Judgment wilfully omits and re
fuses to enforce the provisions of this
net. But whenever the provis
ions of ithls act have been complied
with, all moneys so held shall be paid
over by said superintendent to such
city or district."
Mr. Farr's bill has been endorsed by
the patriotic societies, Knights of
Labor and other labor organizations,
Catholic priests and leading members
of the Reformed and German Luth
erans, and Is decidedly the more popu
lar of the two.

The stock of coal on (hand at tide
water shipping points Dec. 31, 1894, was
780,913 tons; on Nov. 30, 1894, 874,906 tons;
decrease, 83,993 tons.
The upper plate mill and the 63-Inch
mill of the Pottstown, (Pa.), Iron com
pany have rosumed operations, after an

The Bethlehem Iron company, of
South liuthleihem, has decided on 'Im
portant enlargements to (its plant. It
will erect four 40-ton basic open-hearth
furnaces o.nd nine sonklng-plt furnaces.
A largo universal mill Is to be put up
for rthem by Mackintosh, Hemphill &
Co., of Pittsburg.
Hlnkle rurnaoe.of the Ashland, (Wis.).
Iron and Steel company, the largest
charcoal furnace In the world, had the
biggest month's output In Its history
during December. It produced 3,856
gross tons, In .spite of the fact 'that one
day's product wss lost owing to an acci
dent to the 'hoist.
The Wheeler-Sterling Steel company,
of Pittsburg, has received an order from
the United States government for 13
lnch projectiles, which will require six
months steady running of the plant.
The company will soon begin to erect a
mill to cost $150,000, to furnish the steel
used in the projectiles.
A Hump of coal was recently exhibited
In Chicago from the mines at Rosyln,
in the State of Washington. It was,
wo are told, 24 'feet in length, 5 feet 8
Inches iln Width, 4 feet 8llnches in thick
ness, and weighing 41,000 pounds. This
Is 19,000 pounds .more than the ltocking
Valley lump and 15,000 more than the
grtlait block sent over to the World's
falir from this country.
The blast furnace owners of the coun
try evidently expect 1893 to be a much
better business year than wa3 its im
mediate predecessor. Many furnaces
that tiavie not made a Iton of pig .Iron
for over a year are preparing to resume
operations, This is particularly true of
the Soutlh, in some sections of which
pig Iron can now be made cheaper than
in any other part of our country. The
railroads, too, are at last beginning to
place orders for rolling stock, several
large contracts for cars, particularly
freight cars, having been closed since
the linst of tlie year. January starts off
in a very encouraging manner, the con
trast with January, 1S94, being marked.
The Bulletin of the Iron and Steel
association prints Jamies M. Swiank's
statistics of the Iron trade for 1894. The
tci'.al production of pig iron was 6,657,3S8
tons, as compared with 7,124,502 tons In
1893, and 9,157,000 tons In 1892. The pro
duction In 1892 was 22 per cent, greater
thamln 1894. Tlhe production, according
to fuel used, was as fallows: Anthracite,
914,742 tons; cmaireoal, 222,422 tons, and
bituminous, 5,502,224 tons. This Is a de
crease in anfliraclite 'Iron of 432,787 tons,
a decrease In charcoal iron of 164,367
tons, while the amount of bituminous
Iron 'Increased 130,240 tons. In 1S00 the
amount of anthracite Iron produced was
nearly 2,500,000 net tons. The tendency
for a number of years has been to a
large inci'dase in the production of biltu
minous Iron. The staite of Pennsylvania
still produces more than half the entire
output of pl dron. The stocks of Iron
on ihand at the close of the year were
decreased 64,380 tons as compared with
a yeur ago, so that the indicated con
sumption of pig Iron In ithls country
in 1894 was about 6,693,000 tons.
The 'bureau of ainjthraolte coal statis
tics has completed 4ts compilation of
the production of coal in 1894. The
total output was 41,391,199 tons, as
agalnat 43.089,536 tons the prweding
yeair, 41,893,320 tons In 1S92 'and 40,448,
336 tons In 1891, Iflva latter being the
first year In which the forty million ton
mark was passed. The December out

New York, Jan. 19. There was very lit
tle to the stock market toduy outside of
Chicago Gas and Union Pacific. The ten

ed olt strong, rising to 75, but subsequent
ly there was a recession to 73. 1'iilon
Pacific was heavy and fell from 11 to !,,
the lowest since August last. The gelling
was due to a belief that tho assessment on
tho stock would be at least 30 and perhaps
35 per cent. The railway list anil Indus

TO our patrons:
Wuhburn.Crosby Co. wish to assure their many pat
rons thut they 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-Crosbv Co. will takts
no risks, and will ullow the new wheat fully threi
months to mature before grinding.
This careful attention to every detail of milling has
placed Washburn-Crosby Co.'s flour far above other
