1 Since the- conquest of the country by
the Spaniards, Mexico litis been known
nlmoHt exclusively as a producer of sil
ver, and It is only during the lust ueo
ntle that the signal decline in the price
of the white metal has caused the pros
ecution of gold mining on o lurtre scale.
Tho precious mctuls, however, consti
tute but a small part of Mexico's min
eral resource, and the recent opening
of a large plunt of Monterey Is an
indication that vigorous efforts will
now be made to prollt by the vast de
posits of coal and Iron. Many Inter
esting facts relating to the subject will
bo found collected In the last number
of Engineering.
As lately as a quarter of a century
ngo the belief was current among
geologists that there wore no coal
measures of great Importance In Mex
ico. In 1SS1, however, the existence of
anthracite was reported from several
widely scattered districts, and the
specimens forwarded to the capital
caused the appointment of commis
sions to make a systematic survey of
all the promising localities In the re
public. At Barranca In Sonora an
thracite beds containing up to 90 per
cent of fixed carbon were discovered,
and found to be extensive enough to
revolutionize the whole of the north
western section of tho commonwealth.
The same mineral was encountered at
other places in the same state, as well
as numerous points in the states of
Mlchoncan, Vera Cruz, Guerrero, Pue
bla and others. It seems that the late
Mr. C. P. Huntington bought some
mines In Coahulla, which are now'
yielding 300,000 tons or more annually.
Quito recently at Peldras Negras, In
the last mentioned state, a deposit of
coal having continuous, powerful and
compact seams was met with, and,
after twelve trial shafts had been sunk,
ii French engineer computed that 9,
000,000 tons of high grade coal were In
sight. It has been calculated by the
engineer Knmlrez that In the one state
of Coahulla there Is a carboniferous
region covering nearly live thousand
square miles. The coal measures of
Sonora are estimated at seven thous-1
'and square miles. At San Marclnl a
six-foot seam was found at a depth of
no more than seventeen feet, and this
seam, containing coal "great In quan
tity and excellent in quality," has been
folowcd for a distance of ten miles.
Three other veins have been traced
one of them as much as twenty feet
thick and containing fuel said by test
to equal tho finest Leigh Valley pro
duct. Without enumerating other
localities In which conl has been met
with, we may say with confidence that
enough Is known to justify an early
and careful examination of Mexico's
coal deposits by American experts.
Fortunately for the future develop
ment of Mexican industries, Iron and
coal are found in close juxtaposition.
Xear I.imontla in Puebla, for Instance,
are Tepevco and Moreno, where specu
lar nnd hematite iron of excellent
quality is encountered in unmeasured
quantities. In Durango Is the Cerro
del Mercado, or Hill of Iron a solid
mass of mineral 640 feet high, averag
ing about 70 per cent of metal, and
capable of yielding over 300,000,000 tons
of solid Iron.' It is asserted on good
authority thati if Durango were
brought in direct communication with
the United States, a company working
this mountain of iron could export Its
products at prices that might almost
defy competition. Iron deposits only
less rich than those of Durango are
found at Nochltslan and Zlmatian In
Aaxaca, the first named being in prox
imity to coal at TIaxlaco.
Seml-Annual Dividend.
At a special meeting of thn board of
directors of tho Pennsylvania Rail
road company today, a semi-annual
dividend of !I per cent, was declared,
payable an nnd ntter May 31i to the
stockholders of record May C. This Is
the first dividend of 3 per cent, flat
declared since November, 1S92, and Is
payable on the capital stock of ?"0I,-37-1,850.
Last November, the directors de
clared a dividend of 2i per cent, ami
an extra dividend of 1 per cent, upon
a capital stock of $202,003,200.
In May and In November 1892 a 3
per cent, dividend was declared, but
after that year was reduced one-half
per cent., excepting In November, 1900.
nnd November, 1901, when extra divi
dends of 1 per cent, were declared.
This and That.
P. B. Smith, superintendent of din
ing car service, Lackawanna railroad,
was in the city yesterday.
The high speed nlr-brakc system will,
in all probability, be introduced on the
Lackawanna railroad in a few weeks.
Special Officer P. P. Spellman, of the
Delaware and Hudson passenger sta
tion, resumed his duties yesterday, after
a few days' Illness.
The Lackawanna railroad trainmen
appeared In their new spring uniforms
yesterday. They were made by Joseph
P. Webber, of New York. f
P. J. Langan, superintendent of tho
air-brake svstem on the Lackawanna
railroad, has been in Pittsburg this
week, attending a convention of air
brake officials.
The American Locomotive company
has orders for fifteen eight-wheel pas
senger engines and ten ten-wheel
freight engines to be built at the Cliff
works In this city.
The Vulcan Crucible Steel company,
of Pittsburg, that recently built a (cru
cible steel plant at Allqulppa, Pa., Is
drawing plans for a rolling mill nnd
open-hearth furnace to be added to the
works. The concern now manufactures
crucible tool steel.
General Freight and Passenger Agent
J. C. Anderson, General Manager J. E.
Childs and General Surjerlntendent E.
Canfleld, of the New York, Ontario and
Western railroad, who are making
their annual tour of inspection, spent
Wednesday night In the city, and left
yesterday morning.
Jones & Laughllns, Limited, of Pitts
burg, will soon have the Talbot open
hearth furnace at the South Side mills
ready. It Is expected that this furnace
will start early in May nnd will turn
out about 300 tons of steel per day.
Should the steel prove satisfactory
Jones & Laughllns will probably install
a second Talbot furnace.
At a recent meeting the Liege Geo
logical society discussed the question of
recent discoveries of coal in the district
known as La Campine, situated In the
province of Antwerp. The existence of
coal beds In Northern Flanders has for
some time past been a matter of prac
tical certainty; and expert opinion now
inclines to the belief that there is an
extensive coal-field In this part of Bel
glum which connects those of Yorkshire
with the Westphallan deposits.

There was large and concentrated buying of M.

more than the old styles. The great
