"Tin best year In tho history of the
nnlbraoltn coal trade Is iu-iirlni; Hs
end. It will bo lontr rememliered, not
only on account of the Ki'eat Increase
In ntodueUon shown, but also on ac
count of Its bavliiK witnessed the first
tuicccssrul attempt to maintain n sched
ule of prices that did not discriminate
.'ind was binding on all the great pro
ducing companies, .lubbers and retail
ors at many points have complained of
not. sctllnp favors or not being able to
ptodt by tlte usual low prices during
the period of midsummer dullness, but
one man lms been able to get Ills coal
tut cheaply as another and the dealer
who took advantage of the spring dis
counts has now little cause for com
plaint. "Tlte output of coal diirlnv Novem
ber is thought to have been about 4.
r.wi.OOO tons. The output during De
cember, If cold and stormy weather
dues not Interfere, is likely to be about
as great In spite of the holidays. So
tar, but a very small amount of coal
has crone into storage at the great
yards in Pennsylvania and New Jer-vcy-
and the mines would ship more
heavily were sitllleieat cats to be bad.
The closing of lake navigation seems
to have little effect on car supply and
H is altogether probable that a lack of
motive power on the main line roads is
as an important factor In the present
poor transportation fai llitles as is ear
supply. At any rate there is little pi as
pect of th2 situation itnptoving much
"In Lake Superior territory supplies
nf anthracite cm the docks are better
than was anticipated, but the indica
tions are that all-rail coal will be need
ed before spring. At I'hieago all-rail
oo.tl is arriving more freely. In spite
of the poor car supply during the past
two months arrivals of all-rail coal are
about jr.O.OOO tons ahead of the tlgures
for this date last year. Uecelpts by
lake also exceed the li'00 figures, though
behind those of ISM.
"In general, it may be said that the
supplies of coal at Lake .Michigan
points are about up to the average. The
temperature this winter will determine
the sir.e of tho shortuyo before lake
navigation opens again. Demand at
lower lake points and at inland points
'n the east has been active. The vtirl
ms coal roads continue to try to re
strict shipments to points along their
wn lines. Along the Atlantic seaboard
ousiness is generally brisk. Lust week's
cold wave brought out many orders.
Milder weather this week lias permitted
a freer movement from the mines and
along the coast. The steam sizes are
.n sitrony demand and prices are firmer.
One road has advanced its prices on
pea and buckwheat (free burning) tlfty
omits per ton. Certain producers in tho
Wyoming valley are trying to get their
customers to take Lehigh coals in place
of their own five-burning grades. No
tloubt, the demand for the steam sizes
'si somewhat affected by the bitmnin
tus situation, particularly at New York
mirhor points. Tho current prices for
free-burning white ash coal, f. o. b.
New York harbor ports, are: Drokcn,
51: egg, 5 l.'JD; stove and chestnut,
