THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE- MOND A lr, FEBRUARY 21, 1902.
MARKET FOR ANTHRACITE
COAL IS STRONG.
Trices Aro Firmly Maintained and
Traotlcally the Entire Output of tho
Collieries Is Being' Taken Possi
bility of labor Troubles Tho D.,
li. & W. Board for Today J. B.
Keefe Now Division Freight Agent
of Lackawanna with Headquarters
In This City.
The niaiket for uutlmu-lto Is stilt
Btrong1. If the producing companies
mo not makltiMr money now, theic Is
no hopo for them. Prices tiro firmly
maintained and practically tho entire
output of the collieries Is lielnR taken.
AVIth tho possibility of labor troubles
by April 1 and this possibility Is much
Kreater than certain newspapers seem
willing to admit, tho outlook Is fav
orable for a good demand Into March.
Tar supply at the collieries, which be
gan to show some signs of improve
ment, has been reduced again as a te
sult of tho recent storm. The main lino
roads are all open, but sidings arc snow
bound in many places and coal Is great
ly delayed In transit.
According to newspaper reports,
President Mitchell of the Mine "Worlc-
rs, and the presidents of several of
tho anthracite districts have been In
Now York city this week trying to :ir
aiigu for a conference with J. P. Mor
gan. While snnh a meeting may be ar
ranged, ofllcials of tho companies con
cerned profess to know nothing about
it. Mr. Mitchell made a similar visit
to New York shortly before a meeting
of the Mine Workers last year. His
present visit is probably undertaken
with a view to making a statement at
the convention announced to bo held
at Sliamokin on March 12. The opera
tors are to be invited to be present at
this convention; It remains to be seen
whether or not the operators are any
belter represented than they were last
Trade In the Northwest continues to
show a steady movement of coal from
tho docks, and a very fair winter mar
ket. In Chicago territory trade is good.
Supplies on docks aro thought to be
large enough to last till navigation
opens. Arrivals of all-rail coal, how
ever, have been light, owing to delays
by. snow along the railroads in Penn
sylvania. As a result some dealers de
pendent on all-rail shipments have been
short of coal. Along the lower lakes
and in the all-rail trade farther east
tho heavy snow fall has cut down re
ceipts severely and greatly hampered
the forwarding of cars stalled on sid
ings. The shortage of bituminous coal
in that territory has brought out a
heavy demand for tho steam sizes of
anthracite. Along the Atlantic sea
board wintry weather has prevailed,
and the consumption of coal has been
heavy. The market is very active at
Boston, New York and Philadelphia.
At New York retail dealers have had
great trouble in making deliveries
through the snow for several days, and
the movement by barges about the har
bor has been badly hampered by ice.
Tho steam sizes are in stiong demand,
as aro stove and chestnut. We quote
current prices for free-burning -white
ash coal f. o. b. New York Harbor
points as follows: Hroken, $4; egg,
Si. 23; stove and nut, $1,50. Englnecting

In closing:, allow me to quolo as an appro.

(iod .they could be written in letters of gold
upon tho walls ol every ball or temple where
men and women congregate in America. No
place too pure or holy to borrow their use. :a
place too common but what the sentiments thej
contain would make it sacicd and prove anti
septic to the thoughts of disloyalty and tic.iaou
in the human bent.
Tho platform i piinciplcs begins with this
holy truth: "et to love foi the cicator, we
believe that patriotism is one of the highest
and noblest aflcctieius of the human soul, we
belic-vo that without patiiotic (ilbcns Hie insti.

nobler plane of love for (Jod and couutiy.
