STOCKS AND BONDS.
Nw York, 'Aug. 14. Wall street re
view: Speculation at the stock ex
change continues tame, neither 'the
jrold exports nor the operations of the
bond syndicate rn replacing the metal
taken by the coffee Importers and bul
lion dealers seeming to have the slight
est Influence on the market. Up to
date Che professional traders have been
utterly unable to dislodge long stock,
notwithstanding the somewhat vague
talk of another bond issue ami the
steady shipments of gold, accompanied
by rumors that the movement will con
tinue until the crops begin 'to come to
market. In addition to the gold ship
ments there was talk of unfavorable
weather in the corn belt. In dntail,
the market opened steady, after which
Jersey Central, the Orangers, Sugar
and Northern Paciflo perferred de
clined anywhere from Vi to 2V4 per
cent., Lackawanna and Jersey Central
making the greatest losses. General
Electric was sold down i to 36 on the
announcement that It he negotiations
between the company and the Westing
house had been .broken off. instilling
and Cattle Feeding moved up to 22
and receded to'214a 21.
The market cloned weak and V to
1 per cent, lower on the day. Total
ales were 147,248 shares.

Happenings of Interest to the Staple

Evaporated potatoes la the latest pre
served food product of the Pacific
coast. A Washington concern entwiged
In the business of preparing evaporated
apples and prunes has been experiment
ing with potatoes and flndH that, pre
pared In this way, they will keep good
for an indefinite time and retain prac
tically all their food value.
Among recent Inventions Is an auto
matic device for steam boilers, whereby
the steam and air is cut off automatic
ally by the action of opening the fur
nace door during such a time as the
fireman Is stoking or fuel is 'being added
to the fires, the object being to prevent
the danger of the back action of the
flames from flashing out In the stoker's
There were 641 miles of track laid on
sixty-six lines In the first half of 1895,
against 625 miles of fifty-one lines in
the same period fn 1894, 1,016 miles on
ninety-five lines In 189.1, and 1,367 miles
on ninety-two lines In 1892. The down
ward movement In railway construc
tion, from the top of the notch of near
ly 13.000 miles in 1887 to less than 2,000
miles in 1894, has evidently ceased and
a slow upward turn may be expected.
From work now In sight It looks as If
the new track added In 1895 would ag
gregate 2.500 miles, with a possibility
of something more If tlmea continue to
It Is stated that tbe Erie reorganiza
tion plan will call for a straight assess
ment of $12 on the common stock and
t8 on the preferred stock. Nothing will
be given for the assessment. There Is
to be a new consolidated general mort
gage bond Issued to cover the entire
property, subject, however, to the lien
of the first consolidated mortgage now
on the property. It Is stated that In
exchanging present bonds for the new
bonds present bondholders will have to
take certain percentage of their bonds
In preferred stock. The new, bonds
are expected to toe worth M, and are
to be underwritten. It Is said, pretty
close to that figure. The underwriting
Is being done mostly In Europe.
A sectional marine boiler brought out
In England combines the principle of
water-tube arranged over an ordinary
furnace, and a cylinder through which
numerous fire-tubes are passed. The
Invention also provides automatic clos
ing valves for the ends of the several
sections of water tubes, so that any
water-tube ma be ruptured .without
much escape of steam or loss of pres
sure. The product of oombuation first
circulate between the rows of water
tubes, and the partly cooled gases then
pnss through the smoke-tubes in the
cylinder, which abstract the remaining
effective heat. This plan Is expected
to make the boiler one of the most
economical In fuel yet brought out, and
Electricity promises to work a revo
lution in the oil Industry. Heretofore
the great drawback in developing an oil
field was the necessity of hauling boil
ers to the well sites and furnishing
them with fuel and water when they
had been located. It Is proposed to put
an electric motor at each well and fur
nish power from a central electrical
plant, a single circuit being sufficient
to take the place of the fuel and costly
water line. Heretofore the cost of a
well in this field has averaged about
$3,500, of which at least half was the
laying of the water lines and hauling
tfuel. By this plan It is thought that
wens may ne put down ror $2,500 eacn.
The value of the electric power will be
even greater In pumping fields, where
at present fuel must be hauled contin
ually, and wells of small production will
not more than take up the cost of
pumping. With the application of elec
tricity 20 wells may be strung on one
circuit and all furnished with power
from it. It is the Intention to get a
plant In operation at Slatervllle by the
first of October.
