New York. Nov. 12: Less attention
was paid to foreign new at the stock
exchange today. The Granger roads
are steadily Increasing- their ecelpts.
The fact that merlin exchange has
weakened enough to prevent gold ship
ments tomorrow had a good effect on
stocks. Local shorts covered in the In
. dustrials and Burlington and QUInry,
but It was noticeable that the advance
brought out but small amounts of
stacks. The improvement ranged from
to SH, and as a rule the best figures
of the day were current at the close.

The revived report that the general
offices of the Pennsylvania lines west
of Pittsburg, were to be removed to
Chicago, is contradicted by the officials
of the company. Under its charter it
Is stated the railroad company cannot
take its general offices out of Pennsyl
vania. L. C. Salisbury, secretary of the Rail
road Young Men's Christian associa
tion at Watertown, formerly secretary
of the Blnghamton Railroad Young
Men's Christian association, was acci
dentally shot while duck hunting in the
Adirondack mountains at Black Lake,
St. Lawrence county, Wednesday
Freight officials of lines leading Into
the southwest will meet In Chicago
Wednesday to further consider the
pooling of traffic in that territory. Up
to date this scheme has been blocked
by the refusal of .the Kansas City, Fort
Scott and Memphis to go into the deal.
This company has promised to be rep
resented at the meeting in Chicago,
Wednesday, but it Is not likely to
change Its position regarding the pool
unless some of Its competitors decide
to gtve it a larger portion of total ton
nage than it can legally Becure Itself.
Chicago advices yesterday announced
that the differential lines leading east
ward from Chicago have practically
completed an agreement on immigrant
traffic similar to that already entered
Into by the western roads. This agree
ment, it Is stated, covers all the so
called steamship business, which is
comprised largely of immigrants re
turning to foreign countries either
permanently or for the winter. A com
mittee has prepared a report in favor
of the formation of a pool and it Is
the general belief that the question
of percentages will be left to arbitra
tion. It was reported yesterday that nego
tiations are nearly completed by which
practically all the soft coal operators
in central and western Pennsylvania
and the Cumberland region have form
ed a combination on a tonnage basis,
thus following the Ohio bituminous
operators, who made a similar combin
ation last March. It is likely that the
combination now being formed by an
Interstate agreement, will Include
Indiana. Illinois. Ohio, Pennsyl
vania and West Virginia. There Is o
scarcity of bituminous coal reported
from nearly all the districts with a
strong and advancing market.
Judge Lacombe, In the United State?
oircult court, today handed down a
'ieclsion In the application of the reor
ganization committee of the Erie for
tho confirmation of the sale of that
oroperty last Friday, which was op
posed by the New York, Pennsylvania
and Ohio - Railroad company. When
the application was made W. W. Mc
Farland, as counsel for the railroad
company, interposed an objection on
that ground that the court had no jur
isdiction in the matter of foreclosing
the mortgage".
In his decision Judge Lacombe holds
that the court has full jurisdiction and
he confirms the sale of the property.
The Lehigh Valley proposes to pro
vide living apartments for its station
agents in their respective stations

Before the close of the present year
the Pennsylvania lines will have CO.

the line cars. refrigerator cars and stock
cars the Pennsylvania lines are inter

An order has been issued appointing
Sydney Williams comptroller of the
Pennsylvania Coal company, and its
proprietary companies of the Krie and
Wyoming Railroad company. Mr. Wil
liams will have his headquarters at
Dunmore and will have charge of all
the business of this company.
The DuPont Powder company is se
curing all the soda land In the vicinity
of its already Immense soda lake hold
ings In Natrona county, Wyoming. It
Is the intention of the company to erect
large soda works, which will cause an
extension of the Fremont and Elkhorn
It is believed that an extensive field
of valuable coal has been discovered
within fifty miles of Juneau, Alaska. If
this proves to be so it will, of course,
mean very much for the development
of that region. It is known that excel
lent coal exists in many parts of Alas
ka, but the discoveries hitherto have
been remote from the settled regions.
"There Is nothing new in the report
that a tonnage agreement on bitumin
ous coal is being arranged," said Presi
dent Spencer M. Janney, of the Hunt
ingdon and Broad Top railroad, yester
day. f'The matter has been talked of
for months paBt, and Is still under con
sideration. " BUt' nothing definite so far
has been done. I believe, however, an
arrangement of some kind will be per
fected before the beginning of the next
'coal year,' which is the 1st of April."
The audit of Special Master Craw,
ford, of the Reading receivers' cash ac
counts for September, was filed Mon
day.' The account of the railroad com
pany showed total receipts of $3,200,451,
Including $781,139 brought forward on
September 1. The payments footed up
$2,232,270, leaving a balance carried for
ward on September 30 of $968,181. The
account of the Coal and Iron company
showed gross receipts of $1,827,655, in.
eluding $125,773 brought forward. The
payments were $1,653,733, leaving a bal
ance on September 30 of $173,922.
A discovery of anthracite coal Is re.
ported from Iron county, Idaho, which,
if true, will become an Important factor
In the future development of that re.
gion. Vast and limitless deposits - of
Iron ore are found In that locality, but
anthracite coal was not known to exist
there. There has been much talk of
establishing; furnaces and steel works
and it is known that the Rio Grande
Western has In contemplation an exten
sion of its Sallna branch to the iron
fields. Several railroad surveys from
Bait Lake to Los Angeles pass through
this coal and Iron belt.

Msay of Them Have a History That's As
laterestlag as a deos of Fietioa-Some
of the Valqae Traditions That Are As
sociated with Certain Jewels.
In the wild, lavish era of imperial
Rome the pearl seemed to take the
leading role among Jeweled favorites;
at least, when the crown wearers and
millionaires wanted to squander money
at a . dassling pace, they picked the
pearl. We'll have to drop that story of
the $8,000 pearl cocktail which Cleo
patra swallowed for Antony's : enter
tainment, because modern chemistry,
sad to relate, has discovered that if An
tony's Interesting hostess had swallowed
an acid strong enough to dissolve that
pearl Egypt would have had a swell
funeral on Its hands. But . there Is
plenty of authentic evidence that the
pearl and the profligate were close
friends. Caesar paid a quarter of a mil
lion for one single pearl. When that
moneyed maniac, Caligula, smothered
old Tiberius with a pillow (under the
correct impression that he had outlived
his usefulness) his petty cash account
consisted of $400,000,000, which Tiberius
had not been able to spend. Caligula
more of an expert In the great art of
circulation, managed to wipe out this
entire legacy in a single year. But
then, among other interesting freaks,
he built Ivory and jeweled stalls for his
favorite steed and adorned his neck
with a massive collar of pearls. No
fortune could stand these strains very
Tho Famous Kohinoor.
For many centuries the diamond has
led the gem procession, both In crown
Jewels, scepters and private collections
because the ruby, in order to surpass
the diamond in value, must have the
precise pigeon's blood red color, and this
Is well nigh Impossible to And. No well
regulated monarchy of today can get
along without a diamond. England,
without her Kohinoor, would feel like a
disreputable second-class power. Not
by any means so large as its royal
rivals, the Kohinoor is matchless for its
purity and Are. And then it has a ro
mantic history, too. It is traced back
to 1526. when a mogul sultan owned It,
and he reckoned It was worth enough
to support the iwhole world for a day,
When it passed into the hands of Em
peror Aurugunsbe It weighed 793 carats.
But the royal lapidary, who fancied he
could Improve Its luster, sliced it down
to 183 carats, whereupon the wrathful
potentate gobbled up the progressive
stone cutter's estate, but mercifully
left him his head, which he wore In ex
ile. Then the Kohinoor boarded around
among various Eastern monarchs till
the British troops In India managed to
collar it. They placed It In the hands of
Queen Victoria, where they knew it
would never get away. Some years ago
an Amsterdam stone cutter tinkered at
It till he got the stone down to 106
carats, where it now stands and shines.
One of the native rajahs in Borneo
has a pear-shaped Bparkler, 357 carats,
said to be of "purest ray serene." It
was discovered about 1360, and whole
reservoirs of blood flowed before the
ownership of that Mattam diamond was
settled. They say a certain well-fixed
Dutch governor of Borneo wasted his
time once In dangling $250,000 cash be
fore the eyes of the Mattam's owner,
but the rajah said: "Nay, the fortunes
of my family depend upon the posses
sion of that diamond." John Bull
would have had that sparkler by an
offer of bayonets.
Other Noted Sparklers.
The famous Orloff diamond, which
Catherine II., of Russia, bought in 1774
for 450,000 rubles, a pension of 20,000
rubles and a patent of nobility, now
adorns the czar's Imperial scepter. An
idol of India used It once for a glass
eye. Its weight is only 194 carats, but
It ranks next the Kohinoor as a shiner.
The Regent, some times called the
Pitt diamond, now among the crown
Jewels of France, weighed originally
410 carats, but cutting reduced It to 137.
It cost over $600,000. Austria wears
the Florentine diamond in her crown
nearly 140 carats weight and a stone of
dazzling beauty.
Then the famous Sancy diamond, sold
by Napoleon I. to a Russian prince for
enough money to run a new campaign,
was first the property of Baron Sancy,
who sent It as a gift to 'the King of
Portugal. On his way over the moun
tains the trusted messenger who bore
the costly gift was set upon by some
brigands and had to swallow the gem
to save it. They found the stone, some
years later. In his body. Of lesser
prominence among the diamond aristo
cracy are the Cumberland, the Shah
and the Polar Star.
The diamond, as a rule. Is a denizen
of the torrid zone, of Africa, India, East
Indian Islands and Ceylon, where the
sun's heat and volcanic action are said
to produce It. Still, diamonds have been
found In Siberia and they tell a story
of a Swiss peasant who found a stone
of great value clinging to the roots of
a cabbage he pulled from his garden.
Tho Beneficent Turquoise.
The world was In its babyhood when
gems of value were worn as amulets
and credited with the power to protect
from peril and to bring good or ill for
tune In their wake. Some were sup
posed to ward off disease and accident.
No gem was more sedulously sought
for In the ancient world than the tur
quoise. It seemed to have certain hu
man properties. If the mild blue gem,
modest as a violet, found itself in the
vulgar society of camphor, musk or
other jcents or of acids, it showed dis
gust by changing its color. It has al
ways been a prime favorite, largely, no
doubt, because it Is not an expensive
stone, unless of superior size and hue.
Orientals have loved It from the
earliest days as a hea'" and
fortune bringing amulet. 'iey en
grave It with sentences from the Koran.
It was supposed, In the middle ages, to
change color as the health of its owner
changed, so that a citizen, or a fair
dame, could have a reliable family doc
tor always "on hand." Then, too, In
Christian gemology, the beneficlent tur
quoise Is December's guardian stone,
because Christmas Day falls in that
month, when the Prince of Peace was
born and the worn-out, wicked earth
saw the reign of mercy and redemption
begin. Somehow the world, pagan and
Christian and Moslem, has felt the glow
of kind, humane fellowship In the mild
company of the turquoise, the patron
gem of prosperity, rest and peace. Dag
gling is the diamond, but you And no
warmth in its haughty loveliness.
There's genial glow enough In the gar
net's rich, red heart, in the ruby's claret
smile, in the emerald's verdant rays,
and the sapphire's deep blue, faithful
eye. All have their lovers and de
votees; all arouse humanity's avarice,
pride of ornament, passion for wealth
or gaudy show; but none can All that
aulet, sacred niche in the world's tender
heart where the turquoise reigns su
preme. Copied from an old English magazine
Is the following curious table of stones
for each month In the year:
January Garnet: It will make you
a good motherland keep your husband
February Amethyst: It . will lead
you In the paths of truth, save you
from slander and make you reverent
and devout.
March Sapphire: It will make you
faithful through life and carefully
shield you from quarrels.
AprilDiamond: You will need a
stone of solid, steady habits and great
force of character to presekve you from
dangers of this fickle month and keep
you pure and free from evil in the
world. Wear the diamond on your
May Emerald: The fiver of a long
life and beauty and greenness of days.
June Agate: It will keep your hus
band faithful andfrlve away spooks.
July Ruby: FuLofwarmth and sun

She Is Said to Get $10,000 a Year for
Naming the Pullman Cars. '
Many complaints have been made
from time to time about the high
charges levied on travelers using the
Pullman car service, , and several times
there have been threats of Introducing
legislation to regulate such charges
under national law governing railroads,
placing Jurisdiction under control, of
the Interstate commerce commission.
Officials of the Pullman company have
maintained an lmperviousness to this
Miss Florence Pullman, daughter of
the head of the company, whose mar
riage with a foreign nobleman of ques
tionable antecedents has been repeat
edly announced and as often denied,
according to the Pittsburg Post, draws
a salary of $10,000 a year for naming the
cars. In the performances of her du
ties Miss Pullman evinces a decided
preferences for names which sound
euphoniously, and which have a soft
and musical quality. Most of the names
of the cars are of Spanish origin. They
are taken after the names of countries,
rivers, historic towns, battlefields, flow
ers and geographic names miscella
neously selected, and none are named
after men. Such names as Guatemala.
Brazil, Oulana, Peru, Chile, Mexico and.
u. V'Ciiutu Ainn ii'aii cuiin Hre ire-
quently seen. Floral names, such as
Narcissus. Sweet Briar, Geranium, May
Bells and other Moral favorites, are
common, while Windsor, Worcester,
Indianola and the names of states are
also common. Germania, Italy, Egypt,
etc., are often seen.
There is a fine discrimination dis
played In the naming of cars designed
for special service, as, for Instance, din
ing cars are In all Instances named
after celebrated cooks, as Bavarian, and
the cooks, of famous men and women.
There are cars named after the cooks
of Queen Victoria (Francatelll) and of
Emperor William of Germany, the pres
ident of France and noted chefs of
mention in the literature of cookery.
