TO AMEND THE
Effort to Be Made in Select Council
to Incorporate Newly Prepared
List of Judgments in It.
When the ordinance providing for the
Issuance of $100,000 worth of bonds to
lefund the judgments and other ad
judicated claims outstanding against
the city comes up in select council next
Thursday night an effort will be made
to have it so amended that It will
specifically state just what judgments
aie to be paid and Just what the
amount of each Is.
A similar effort was made in the
common branch when the measure was
up n few wpeks ago but It was unsuc
cessful. Assistant City Solicitor Da
vis lias been preparing during the past
week a complete statement of all judg
ments which can be Incorporated In the
ord liin.ee if the amendment carries.
Mr. Davis has already worked sev
cial days on tills .statement and will
not have it completed for several more.
11 was prepared In anticipation of Its
being wanted in the viaduct hearing
but on account of the agreement en
tered Into between the contending at
torneys was not required. Mr. Davis
will continue work upon -it, however,
for future information, as It is the first
complete statement of outstanding
judgments ever prepared in the his
tory of the city.
It Is being compiled from the records
in the prothonotary's office and the In
vestigations made by Mr, Davis re
veal the fact that a. number of judg
ments which have beep paid are not
satistied on the record.
The reason fciven by those who favor
amending the bond ordinance for so
doing Is that to simply provide for the
issuance of $100,000 worth of bonds
without stating what particular Judg
ments and claims are to be paid would
be a loose way of conructlng business.
Another reason given Is that the to
tal amount of judgments is something
less than Si),000 and that the appro
priation of JIOO.000 would leave a mai
ftlu of $20,000 or more which might be
converted Into a sort of councllmitnlu

NEWS OP THE
PEE8ENT STATUS OF ANTHRA
CITE COAL TRADE.
There Is No railing Off in the De
mandNew Version of the Pur
chase of the Pennsylvania Coal Co.
The D., L. W. Board for Today.
Officers and Directors of the Na
tional Elevator and Macnlne Com
pany Chosen Plan to Control Steel
The Engineering and Mining .totimal
Haturday had th following1 on the an
thracite coal situation:
The demand for anthracite coal
shows no falling off, nor so far as
sales agents nt Now York can ee Is
there likely to be any marked decrease
In demand for weeks. Operators are
doing their best to supply orders which
continue lo come In from every part of
the country whither hard coal Is
shipped at this season of the year.
The holidays, however, will kep down
the output this week and next. The
miners, with full time and good wages
for two months,1 have had u merry
Christmas and dining the past week
the mines have not been able to run
wllh full forces.
In Chicago territory, as at other
Western points where coal Is shipped
by rail, demand Is brisk, with little
prospect of the supply catchltiK up to
consumers' needs. At all Inland points
In the ICast and along the seaboard
consumers are clamorlnir for coal. At
New York harbor coal for spot deliv
ery Is as scarce as last week. Con
sumers getting little comfort from
their regular llrms are going around
looklns for odd lots, but In the great
majority of eases they simply waste
time, as every company has regular
buyers to whom It must give prefer
ences unless it wants trouble. AH sizes
are In short, supply. One man who had
no stova coal In his yard is reported
to have gone lo every firm In the city
that he thought could let him have a
spot cargo of thut size, bill with no
success, although he was willing to pay
It may be said that the recent Dur
ch'ase of a controlling Interest in the
Pennsylvania Cool company was pure
ly the act of the house of J. P. Mor
gan & Co., consequently all newspaper
stories as to what roads would handle
the output and how it would be mar
keted were pure moonshine. Other
stories about the folly of interested
roads not securing such a control a
year or more ago have no better foun
dation. The Pennsylvania Coal com
pany's stock was so widely held tb'at
no group of men was able to turn over
a fntrolllng interest: to secure this It
was necessary to buy shares In open
maiket. something at which a board of
directors would hesitate, though the
act offered no difficulties to a powerful
Board for T.day.
