The Buffalo Express yesterday devot
ed nearly three pages to a description
with prof'ro illustrations of the plant
the Lackawanna Steel company is
erecting at Buffalo. The article has the
following with reference to the build

All tho vi-itor has noted thus far is cl
thcnoith end of the site and pertains to the
ltes-emer piocet.s. It is not the puiposc here to
touch on what is .vet to be done. It is enough
to uic a faint i(Ie.i of what already has been
aicomplMiid. Pcihaps it is ju't as well, bow
ever, for the lluffjlo tititn to know that the
company nUo will build an opcii-be-ltli plant
for tho opcn-liiMrtlt piocess ami that it will be
southeast of the llessrtnir plant that is licie ile
sciibed. The open-heailh I'ontuictlon work will begin
without delay nnd it means buildings and struc
tures additional to a number bejond the ability
of the lay reader at piesent lo follow. Combined
with the Ilestenicr pioees3 the open-heailb pio
cess will give tho Lackawanna Steel company a
plant in the world, the l.uget single
steel plant in tlds country at present.
The highest ofllclal at the plant is Henry Well

Local District Conventions to Be

The next Interesting primaries will
bo held on Friday In Blair county.
Here the voters will pass directly on
the merits ot Mr. Ulkln and Colonel
L. A. AVulres, of this city. Under the
Blair rules, Colonel AVatres fulled to
register in time to get his name on tho
1 allot, but Mr. Klkin waived this point
and tho names of the two are now on
tho ballot. Blair bus been somewhat
Insurgent In the past, and It therefore
affords a fair field for testing tho cur
rents of public opinion in reference to
the gubernatorial nomination. Politi
cians throughout the stuto aro await
ing ItH verdict with Interest.
There was talk on Saturday among
locul Republicans of prominence of
culling the Luckuwanua district con
ventions about the last of April or first
of May. It Is argued that this would
be plenty of time for the state con
vention, nnd also late enough to make
unnecessary separate conventions later
for the nomination of candidates for
the legislature, Tito present Intention
of the Republican county leaders is to
nominate delegates and legislative
candidates at the same time, thus sav
ing considerable expense. It Is the be
lief of some that by the time Indicated
the canvass for the nomination for
governor will have been defined wjth
uutllclent clearness to niuko unneces
sary any division of lofal opinion on
that point.

To Be the Right Hand Man of Gen
eral Manager E. E. Loomis, of
the Lackawanna.
Attorney John It. Wilson, of the Dela
ware, Lackawanna and Western coal
department, has been appointed chief
clerk to "General Munager E. E. Loomis,
with headquarters in Now York. He
will assume the duties of his new posi
tion tomorrow, although the appoint
ment became effective a few days ago.
Mr. Wilson was at one time an out
side foreman at the Avondule mines,
where he obtained much practlc'nl ex
perience. He studied law with Taylor
& Lewis, in this city, and was appointed
attorney for tho. coal department in
1S0S, succeeding the kite M. I. Corbett.
The position vacated by Mr. Wilson
in the coal department will, in all
probability, be lllled by tho appoint
ment of Daniel R. Reese, a well-known
young attorney, who resides at Ply
mouth. Mr. Wilson has earned his promotion
by strict application to duty and by ac
cumulating an Invaluable fund of in
formation pertaining to the mining in
dustry. The position of chief clerk to
Mr. Loomis, while he was In this city,
was held by C E. Tobey, who has been
appointed assistant superintendent of
the coal department, .
The appointment of Colonel It, A,
Phillips to the general superlntendency
of the department, as mentioned ex
clusively In The Tribune on Saturday,
has met with popular approval, und the
general opinion expressed is that he
will cement the already pleasant rela
tions which exist between the company
and its employes.

Fills In an Exceptionally Ablo Man
ner One of the Most Important Po
sitions Under the Company Thos.
J. Snowdcn, Common Councilman
of tho Second Ward, Makes an Ex
cellent Public Ofllcial Something
About Colonol R. A. Phillips, tho
New Lackawanna Superintendent.
One of the most important positions
under tho Lackawanna railroad is
that of master car builder, and It
takes a man to 1111 It who is thoroughly
familiar with every detail of the car
from the casting ot a wheel to the tint
ing of a palaco car. The company wns
extremely fortunnte In the selection of
L. T. Canfleld, who Is a recognized au
thority on car construction, and the
confidence placed In him Is best evi
denced by the revolution of things he
has worked in the car shops operated
by the company. From antedated
equipment nnd customs, Mr. Canlleld
wrought out such changes in the
Scranton shops, by the introduction of
up-to-dnto methods and machinery,
that the place is scarcely recognized as
the plant of old.
Mr. Canfleld was master car builder
of the Chicago, Rook Island and Pa
cific railroad fof several years prior
to 1S;)C, when he became the Chlcugo
representative of the Standard Rail
way Equipment company, and from
there camo to the Lackawanna rail
road in April, 1S99. He is the patentee
of several articles of railway equip
ment, a practical mechanic, and is
thoroughly conversant with thd needs
of the road. In the formation of the
Scranton Car Builders' association, re
cently, Mr. Canfleld took an active
part and was unanimously chosen its
llrst president. He enjoys the confi
dence and esteem of the men employed
by the company, and Is an organizer
of marked ability, having repeatedly
demonstrated that fact since he joined
tho Lackawanna forces.
To have to begin life's battle as a
doortender In the mines of one of the
biggest coal companies in the country,
and, at the age of thirty-eight to be
come general superintendent of that
company, is an achievement that makes
the average man wear plumes. But
Colonel Reese A. Phillips to whom this
most enviable extension has come Is
not nn average man, nnd In the matter
of vanity is very far removed from the
average. It can be safely predicted that
no one will ever discover from any
change in the colonel's demeanor that
he has come Into a. position at the
head of 1S.000 men In twenty-six col
lieries with nn annual output of 5,200,
000 tons of coal.
Colonel Phillips' career Is one that
might well be held up for tho emulation
and encouragement of the young. In
1S7-1 he secured a job In the Jersey mine
ns doortender at seventy-five cents a
day. He kept pushing ahead from one
position to another acquainting himself
thoroughly with all the ins and outs of
practical mining und in the meantime
studying during his spare hours to nt
himself for the best positions the oc
cupation of mining could afford. In
1SS0, he joined the company's engineer
corps, nnd perfected himself by prac
tice and study In this branch of min
ing. For a short time he worked with
tho Philadelphia and Reading company,
but returned to the Delaware, Lacka
wann and Western company In 1S83
nnd continued with the surveying corps
until 1S87, when Superintendent Benja
min Hughes made him assistant fore
man at the Dodge under the late Ed
ward Jnines. Four years later, he
succeeded Hon. John T. Williams, as
foreman at; the Oxford, and after two
ears was transferred to tho Pettebone,
ns superintendent. A few months later
hewas selected as un assistant general
superintendent to succeed the late
Thomas J. Phillips,
When E. E. Loomis became the su
perintendent of tho Delaware, Lacku
wnnn and Western coal department he
