The AtiRtut h'tter of tho Anthracite

"The past month Inn shown o slc

have been accepted, ulsni'd by the lat

hlxty-flve per cent, contracts may be

now Is to be completed Is the settle

would seem that the Individual opeia
tnis might tlnd the summer of their
discontent mined Into winter by the
glorious fiost they will meet when
they ask for Intelligible aveiages.
"Tho commits ay that those gen

lection, no doubt, but "disinterested?"
or an "expert nccnuntant?" It
amounts almost to an accusation.
"Hut, dropping this point for the
moment. It is a matter of some specu
lation as to how soon the averages
will roach the f. o b circular price.
Tiue, the have been nearer to It than
for many ycais, but theie is still a
margin of a valuable number of cents
per ton. If the companies are abso
lutely adhering to ilicular pi ices, as
they claim and as, indeed, there seems
little reason to disbelieve, then where
is tho trouble.' Does It Ho in some of
those old scandals, long time con
tracts with belated deliveries, or is
homebody on tho ' Inside" getting fa
vored tlgmes? These aie matters
with which tho companies, now that
they aie in piactirally full possession
of the maiket, must look after. They
have taken such a determined stand
that they are open to ciltlelsm If they
fail to live up to their announced prin
ciples. Of cum pp. the word "pilnci

"The labor situation in the nnthra

Their ability to fmce the lliemeu to

with their vailous other lecent acts,
shows a slicing effort to lncion.se their

n.t Apt II. Any lecognltlon or con
cessions to this bod will lie used as
a lever to unseat those who have
yielded. Tho entire situation Is one
demanding the utmost vigilant e and
care from the operators, both Individ

"It Is singular that no consistent ef

"And these Mine Workers have re
cently passed resolutions that they
will pi event the mines from working

of coal. They wish to "restrict" pro

genuously admit, the operatois will
never have a surplus "with which to

officials order a strike. Hut when the
operators find that tho market does
not require the output from full
working time, and shut down for a
few days, then tho miners complain
bitterly of a "trust" which grinds and
oppresses them, orders their going and
coming nnd generally interferes with
their liberties. It Is 'heads I win, tails
you lose.' The miners want restrlc

It Is an attempt nt a trust, the very
thing they are crying against, And a
trust of appalling character. A body

methods and Intricacies of transport

lutely Irresponsible as such, Incapable
of being successfully sued for the ic
covety of damages It might occasion;
a body which In a moment of hysteri

Big Increase in Coal Exports.
I'o.il expotatlons fiom tho I'nlted
States during the fiscal year Just ended
as shown by the tteasuiy buieau of
statistics, amounted to $.'.' .il7.49(i,
against $19,5iU,SI8 In the fiscal ear I MO,
$13,M.1,0"& In lSsn. $1I.OOS,64,'! In IW, $10.
64fi,0tW In 1S80, and $s.3nt,026 in 1501.
Tims Is the value of toal exportation
from the I'nlted States has doubled
since 1897 and neatly trehlcd In the
decade. These liguies i elate to values,
Measuied by quantity tho Increase has
been even gi eater, tho expoi ts In 1901
being 7.670,149 tons, against 2,399,039
ton- in 1S91, thus making tho total ex
ports of 1901 in quantity moie than
thiee times as much as In 1V.11
The I'nlted Stales now stands third
In the list of coal exporting countries
of the win Id, The coal expoit flguies
of the piintipal countiies uf the win Id
In 199 show that while llolglum slight
ly exceeded the I'nlted Slates In the
total number of tons expoitid, her Im
ports weie more Ithan one-half as
great as her expoit1-, making lur net
expoitatlon of toal much less than that
of the I'nlted States The figures of
coal cxpotts during 1900 recently pub
lished b the British government, a
copy of wide h has just reached the
butea of statistics, show that the coal
expoits of the thiec piintipal coal ex
poit. ng countiies the I'nlted States,
(lOitnany and Ihe 1'nlted Kingdom in
1900 were: I'nlted States, 7,!ir.S.O00 tons;
Oeimany. JS,tr5 00f tons, and I'nltecl
Kingdom. r,S. 105,000 Thus, while the
glow th of the coal ixports fiom the
I'nlted States shows a huge peicentage
of Inciease, those figures of tho expoi
tatlon of coal fiom Germany and the
I'nlted Kingdom show that the field
occupied by those commies, is still
nuitli laiger than that which the 1'nlt
od States now supplies.
In giowth of both txpoits and pio
diiition. however, the I'nltid Stntoso
had made much more rapid advance
than any other country. The total
quantil of toal produced in the I'nlted
Kingdom was, In lhc, lu7,.M5i,000 tons.
In 1900, L'jr.,lsi,noo tons, while In the
I'nlttcl States the pioductlou was, in
KnM'i, 100,t,fil,000, and ill 1900, 241.1JJ.O0O.
Thus the I'nlted Kingdom since 1S&G
has Ini leased her pioductlou but about
SO pel ei'iii., while the I'nlted States
his incieased hers nearly 130 pel sent.
The tost of coal has meantime In
cieased much moi e rapidly In the
I'nlted Kingdom than In tho I'nlted
States The value of the 157 million
tons of toal mined In the I'nlted King
dom in 1SM5 Is put by tho statement of
tho Hritish government above refeired
to at 3S million pounds sterling, and
of the J25 million tons mined In 1900 Is
put nt 121 millions sterling, Thus,
while tho quantity mined in tho I'nlted
Kingdom has'lncreased but 50 per cent,
from XS0 to 1900, tho value has mean
time increased over 200 per cent On
the other hnnd, tho value of the 100
million tons of coal mined in the I'nlted
States In ISSfl was, nccoidlng to the
same authority, 32 million pounds ster
ling, and that of the 245 million tons
mined In 1900, C7 millions sterling.
Thus, In the I'nlted States, while tho
quantity Increased about 150 per cent ,
the value of the coal mined Increased
but a little over 100 per cent.
The telatlve increase In the tost of
coal In the i'nlted Kingdom and tho
I'nlted States Is shown In an even
nunc striking form In the statement of
the British government above lefen.d
to by u table which gives the price
per ton of coal In the I'nlted Kingdom
and I'nltecl States In 1SS8 and 1900, ic
spcetlvwly. It shows that the price In
the I'nlted Kingdom udvanced from
5 shillings per ton to 10s. 9d., from IbbS
to 1900. while In the United 'States it
fell from 6s. to 5s. Ti$i. per ton in tho
same lime. Anothei table In the same
statement shows tho relative value per
ton of coal produced taken at the pit's
mouth in the I'nlted States, United

He did not counsel a Mrlke, but said:
"If this company does not change Its

Continuing he chaiged tho Delaware

A Valuable Work.
An encyclopedia that comes out every
month Is the latest novelty. It is n
publication which no man of affairs, no
one who would keep abieast of the
times, can do without.
It Is entitled "The Cm tent Cncyclo
podia" and Is published by The Modern
Research society. 133 La Salle street,
Chicago, This society was oiganlzed
by a corps of distinguished specialists
for the purpose of furnishing reliable
information on cuirent subjects. The
lmcyclopedla is a monthly iccoid of
human piogiess it has as icgular con
tiibutois ovei lifty noted authoiltles.
It furnishes the latest Information on
hlstoiy. literature, science, education,
art, etc. Hath Issue Is arranged nl
phobetlcally and has a complete Index.
The great? advantage to the busy man
Is obvious. He has tho latest informa
tion conveniently classified and In
dexed for quick refeiome The great
defect of costly encyclopedias Is that
they quickly get out of date on many
subjects. This work renews Its youth
month by month. The numbers aie
beautifully pilnted nnd Illustrated,
The woik merits the highest success.
