DAMAGE BY STORM.
The Heavy Raia Causes Great Uamage.
No. 3 Shaft of the P. H Hooded.
The vry heavy ratn. combined with
the melting: snow, has caused much
rtamuife In and around the city. Cel
lars of private and business houses
have been flooded and inconvenience
and ilama pe has been the result. But
tne irreatest misfortune has been the'
flooding of the shaft No. 3 of the Dela
ware and Hudson Canal company. The
pi on nd being only slightly covered by
inuw and there being no frost In the
ground, the hard rain pierced through
the 'earth like Into a sieve, and the
mine was quickly tilled with water. In
some Instances the miners were com
pelled to suspend wor Thursday after
noon. Hy Friday morning at 5.30 the
water was thirteen inches above the
rail top at the foot of the shart and
the great Inroads of water wa so much
that the men could not Ret to work, and
! 11 o'clock It assumed nineteen Inches
and wus rising, despite the fact that
the nil in :s had been kept at their ut
most capacity. There are 150 men em
ployed in the shaft, and they may have
a rest of from one week to a month.
It will depend upon the state of the
weather. Nothing will be left undone
to pump the water and further efforts
will be made In order to get the mine
j-ady for the men.
The silk mill was also flooded. The
water descended In torrents from the
water shed just above the fire build
ing, ami the cellars so filled up that
work was suspended Thursday after
Noon, but W'H'k wus resumed ugaln
yesterday. Very little damage was

It Is estimated by good authority
that In the aggregate the orders for
steel rails on the books of the mills fig
ure Up between 2J0.O0O and 300.000 tons.
This, the Iron Age thinks. Is a good
showing when the fact Is borne In
mind that the mills delivered about
1,100,000 tons In all of standard rails In
1S9.1. Thus far some Important groups
of railroads have placed their require
ments, but a good many must still be
heard from. Aside from the lS.OCO-ton
Pacific coast order, there has been
nothing to speuk of from new roads
With fairly good earnings U96 ought
to be a much better rail year than was
1895. A few hundred thousand tons
more going Into that channel would do
much to steady the situation.
Philadelphia Stockholder: The point
Is made that betterment of the anthra
cite coal trade means much of benefit
for other railroads than those carry
ing anthracite coal. Higher prices for
anthracite coal are followed by not only
higher tolls on anthracite coal but al
most always on bituminous coal as well.
It has been found, moreover, that the
two trades go together ordinarily;
when one is prosperous, the other Is
also. The recent agreement among the
anthracite coal producing and carry
ing companies has already borne fruit
In the bituminous coal field. A plan
for better conditions In the latter has
been formed and Is not unlikely to go
Into Alteration soon. The Huntingdon
and Broad Top Mountain Railroad and
Coal company will profit considerably
by this development, the Broad Top's
bituminous coal tonnage being large.
Last year the company's coal tonnage
Increased over the previous year 323,019
tons, and this year the gain should be
relatively more .On this head Presi
dent Janney. in his latest annual re
port to stockholders, says: "It Is rea
sonable to expect that the natural In
crease in the consumption of bitumin
ous coal will cause even larger ship
ments during the year 1896 than during
the year 1895. and as an effort Is now
being made looking to some arrange
ment whereby better prices and better
rates may be obtained for coal, this
business should be more profitable both
to producers and railroads. The rates
on Cumberland and West Virginia coal
to tidewater points have been extreme
ly low. and it has only been by the
strictest economy In movement, by the
employment of powerful motive power,
and the good condition of the roadbed
and tracks, together with the very
large amount of tonnage moved, that
this business has been at ail lucrative."
Atchison officials have, recently been
turning their attention to the efficiency
and earning power of their locomotives.
A report was called for by the board
the other day, showing what one addi
tional loaded car on each freight train
on the Atchison would mean In earn
ings during the year. The reply was
that if each freight train carried one
more loaded freight car there would
be additional earnings amounting to
$1,200 per locomotive for the year. The
Importance of this Is in the fact that
the Atchison has something like 1,000
locomotives, and with the additional
loaded freight car on each train there
would be $1,200,000 in all earned. More
over, this would . be net, because it
would cost no more to haul the extra
car than it costs to haul the present
Secretary Hoke Smith, In a conference
with the house committee on Pacific
railroads Thursday, advocated fore
closure of the government mortgage
on the Pacific railroads and a resale of
the roads. He declared there would
be no difficulty In doing this without
government ownership of the roads to
which he was opposed absolutely. He
recommended that congress pass an act
forfeiting the lands granted the two
companies with an exemption In favor
of bona fide purchasers from the rail
roads. If congress did not legislate, he
said, he would revoke his suspension
orders and patent the lands to the
Judge Ricks, of the United States

The numerous electric railroads In
Northern Ohio are causing the steam
