The L. & M. It. K. Meeting.
The first annual meeting' In eight
years was held here January 3, 1901.
A number of the Delaware, Lacka
wanna and Western ofllclals came up,
and they won Hip frood opinion of all
by their fianknoss and evident fair
ness In deallnff with the affairs of tho
r.aekawanna and Montrose branch, In
which our people had put their money
and wero never able before to get un
satisfactory report us to the road, to
nay nothing of a dividend, but thehe
oillclals declared one at this meeting
(.1 per cent., payable February 1.).
It v.is also voted to pay off the $11,
100 debt of tho road, for which some
of our citizens are holding:, from tho
money In the treasury. There was
$16,000 In the treasury, $7,000 of which
has accumulated during the past eleven
months. This shows thnt the nresent
management is good for the Lacka
wanna and Montrose.
Among the direotois chosen wero five
as representing Montrose, as follows:
V. D. I,usk, "W. II. Jessup. AV. G.
T'aike, J. It. Cooley. O. A. Gilbert.
To Prevent Settling.
Preparations nre under way at the
Kavino mine In Plttston for the exe
cution of a, plan which serves the
triple purpose of draining' the mine
workings, disposing of an old culm pile
and preventing a further settling of
the workings In the vicinity of tho re
cent caves on Parsonage street.
It is over a year since a fire occurred
In the Itavlna that necessitated the
Hooding of the mine, says the Plttston
Gazette. The fire- has been extin
guished and for several months the
pumps have been removing water.
Tho water has been turned Into a
small creek leading to tho river, but
under the new regime It will he used
for the (lushing of the old workings
with clum. Worklngmen were yester
day digging a trench to the culm pltu
for a four-Inch plpo which will bo
tnken Into the mine through tho air
shaft, nnd through which a stream of
culm will bo Injected Into the aban
doned places. The culm, it Is said,
after drying, becomes as hard as a
brick and serves Its purpose well.

P. O'Kaefe. who leaves the Lacka

presented lilm with a gold-headed
cane, sultubly Inscribed, and a valu
able meerschaum pipe.
Lackawanna passenger conductors
have been on tho lookout for a num
ber of Kew York-'Uuffalo excursion
tickets Xos. 27S0 to 2099 Inclusive, form
llx's. minted on red paper und dated
1S1G. These tickets were stolen from
New Vorlc live years ago. If any of
these thkets are presented for pass

them up and collect fare, advising
Superintendent Rlno by telegraph.
The Onlailo und Western is getting
into a unique position. With the Mor
gan Interests In control of the Erie,
the Lehigh Valley, the Heading, the
.leisey Ccntial, the Delaware and
Hudson and the Lackawanna, tho On
tario and Western is piratically tho
only Independent anthracite co.nl road
In the field. The company mines about
-',500,000 tons of co.il a jour, which Is
enougrh to make its control essential.
It seems a logical necessity that the
Ontailo and Western must be acquired
by the combination to permit the
oanylng out of its plans. Philadelphia
FUTUB.E RAILWAY TENDENCIES
No More Trunk Lines but Many New
Jain II. Hill, in Hie World's Woik.
The forces likely to determine in
futuie the construction of new lines
of railway in the United States aie the
need for better terminal facilities, and
the special requirements ot particular
sections. That the building of great
trunk lines has come to un end Is
shown, 1 think, by the fact that dur
ing the past dozen years there has
been a steady decline In lailway con
struction In nil paits of the United
States. A railway that will not yield
a prospecthe profit to its projectors
lias no legitimate reason for existence,
and, as tho existing lines between the
AVest and tho Enst aie ptepared to
transport twice or thrice tho tonnage
now offering, or likely to offer for
many years to rorae, to attempt to
parallel them with new ones would bo
a financial blunder little better than a
crime. The competition or older rivals
and the consequent division of busl
nesswould render the stocks and bonds
of the newcomers practically worth
less, and Investors have learned cau
tion from the disasters or tho past.
Lines now- In operation aie pretty
sine to seek nnd secuie Improved out
lets, and there Is bound to be a small
but steady Increase In mileage having
for its object the development of some
particular Interest or section; but
more than that should not be looked
for In the near future. Indeed, in most
of the states of the East and Middle
West, the existing mileage supplies
nil the facilities wanted. In such
states no considerable amount of new
mileage can bo built with the arsur
ance of profit, and this fact will exert
a salutary Influence In checking
doubtful ventures and compelling
obedience to the veiy excellent rule
that where a lino is capable of hand
ling the transportation of its section,
the construction of a second should
not be undertaken. Capital seeking
investment will be mainly directed In
future to the development of urban
ami Interna ban electric ralhoads, a
department of transportation which Is
still In Its infancy.
