Qlvea Tlgurea on Anthracite Pro
duction Blnck Diamond Speaks
About What the Operators Will Do
When the Minors Return to Work.
Fuller Syndlcato Makes n Volun
tary Increase of Ten Per Cont. In
the Wages of Transportation Men
In Its review of the anthracite situa
tion, the KiiBlnccrltiB nnd Mining Jour
mi for this week says:
Tlio howlliiR mob that overpowered the
sheriff ut Shciinnilonh unci tliu long liata
of assaults awl outrageous acts of Viln
ius kinds that lmvo occurred with In
roasliiR frequency dining the nxt ten
iays arc sure Indications that the strike
r becoming very unpopular, and the pro
fessional agitators who feel their prcstlgo
waning arc resorting to dcBpornto meth
ods to keen the men out. Tlicro Is a
widely circulated rumor that some of U19
strikers, feeling that the strike is hope
lessly lost, and realizing that certain men
have needlessly causrd them to lose near
ly threo months wages, nro determined
to stay out, to claim relief funds, nnd, If
the promised liberal aid Is not forthcom
ing, do what they can to wreck the or
ganization. Tlio operators mcantlmo maintain their
position unchanged, saying that tho de
mands of the union really meant the
surrender of nll'dlsclpllno at tho mines,
that they do not care to preclpltato riot
ing and bloodshed by aggressive meas
ures, and that tho mines will resume ns
goon as tho men are ready to go to work.
Tho clean cut and vigorous statement
of President Fowler, of tho New York,
Ontario nnd "Western, Is opportune, nnd
should have a Httlo effect on thoso news
papers that havo been printing crazy
etuft to tho effect that tho operators are
prolonging the strlko with tho deliber
ate intention of advancing prices, nnd
havo already made millions of dollars
out of vast amounts hoarded at tho be
ginning of tho strlko.
Tho total tonnage mined In May has
been officially estimated at 1.708,692 tons.
No figures of tho Juno or July output
have been published, but tho output was
almost wholly washery coal, tho princi
pal exception being tho product of tho
Fcml-anthracito mines at Bcrnlce, tho
owners of which, by winning a long
strike last year, aro now running with
non-union men, and no doubt getting a
nlco profit on the output. Tho total ship
ments of all mines to. June 1 aro given
as 18,731,879 tons, ns against 22,727,0;6 tons
to tho corresponding date In 1901.
Trade in all consuming territories Is
light, nnd supplies are getting low. At
tho head of tho lakes tho docks aro bare
of certain sizes, and the total amounts
on hand are little over 23.000 tons. In
Chicago territory there Is little doing.
Dealers are not seeking trade, and thoso
consumers who would like to lay In win
ter supplies receive no encouragement.
Stocks are diminishing, and llttlo coal
Is available for out-of-town shipments.
Along tho lower lakes and In Canadian
territory coal is scarce. At Montreal
prices aro SG.DO per ton, tho highest price
for July for many years, and dealers will
not sell for forward delivery. Along the
Atlantic seaboard supplies are getting
protty low, and dealers are doling out
xoal In small lots and to resular buyers.
Retail dealers at Philadelphia are asking
f" for egg, stove and chestnut and 3 for
At Boston retail prices havo been nd
advanced $7 to tS per ton. At Now York
harbor points prices vary. Retail deal
ers In Brooklyn are asking $7, tho regu
lar price In Manhattan Is $S, but often
$9, nnd in some cases $10 Is asked. The
total stocks In tho retail yards of Greater
New York aro undoubtedly low. Tho
regular wholesale prices for August are:
Broken, $4.13; egg, stove and chestnut,
$1.40 f. o. b. Now York harbor shipping
ports. Only In a few cases have tho com
panies any coal to sell, and that Is in
limited amounts for certain old custom
ers who must havo anthracite.
) No Retrograde movement.
"Notwithstanding the much to be re
setted fatal riots between miners and
police In Shenandoah, Pa this week,"
says the Black Diamond, "and the fact
that they will probably continue, there
should be no hesitancy on the part of
the anthracite operators in maintain
ing the position they have assumed
from the first, despite the fact that
supplies of hard coal are so greatly re
duced in the New England states that
there Is a growing sentiment among
the people that it is about time over
tures were made for a settlement of the
"While this may be conceded to be
true, it Is also true, and a fact, that
the least sign of weakness on the part
qf the operators would open tho door
for the admission of every description
of trouble and annoyance. Operators
nnd miners have been playing a wait
ing game for the twelve weeks of the
strike, with sturdy resolution on tho
one side and some wavering on the
other. The presidents of the coal com
panies nnd of the carrying railroads
cannot now afford to take any chances;
the cost of the strike has been too
much to have it thrown on one side
hy any show of faltering on their part,
because there would be no end to tho
demands for this and that concession,
with the possible threat of a strike In
case of refusal.
"It Is believed that the operntors so
iiiuiuumiiy unuersianu me status quo
that they wjll bu satisfied to allow tho
miners to resume work; after that, If
there are any abuses, nnd thero may
he, ihen will bo tho time to relievo
"Much has been said of tho promised
relief to the rnon from the bituminous
coal miners; this may bo a large
amount, sufficient to keep tho wolf
from the door, but that ndmlts of
grave doubt, However, whatever It

meantime tho miners nro making no
headway. Opinion prevails that tho
miners should return to work en masse,
as they went out, and then make a
proper presentation of grievances which
they would like to havo redressed,
There Is little doubt that the tactful
judgment of tho operators would see
Its way clear to remedy tho trouble, of
whatever nature It might bo.

Now York, Aug. 6. Today's stock mar
ket continued to demonstrate In a noga
tlvo way tho underlying strength of tho
financial and business situation In tho
country, 'finding was mostly Idle. Tho
few- stocks which were atrontr did not
make any Impressive showing and did not
alter the listless tone of the market In
general. But It is clear that there Is no
eagerness to sell stocks. With no buyers
on a largo scalo in view, holders show
themselves content to cany stocks and
wait for a more active demand. The
very. Idleness of tho market Is a reassur
ing fact. Over extension of credits in
spcculativo ventures Is tho one factor
that threatened bad consequences. Now
thero seems to be a common agreement
to await the satisfaction of tho coming
requirements of the country for moving
the crops. All authorities Hro agreed that
this requirement will be unusually largo
this year. Today's small export of gold
was obviously, a mercantile transaction
and It was broadly intimated that some
thing equivalent to a premium was paid
by thoso who aro to get It. Tho nearer
approach of tho period of safety for tho
year's crops confirms tho contldcnco In
their abundance. With plentiful harvests
and a large surplus of our products for
export any anxiety over tho liquidation
of our lloatlng foreign Indebtedness with
out embarrassment Is nuleted. Tho deci
sion of tho stock exchange to close on
Saturday for no other cause than tho
coronation of the King of England Is
testimony to tho general ncqulescenco in
tho piesent dullness of tho trading in
securities. A demand for the Gould
Southwestcrns was tho most prominent
feature of tho day's trading. Tho very
heavy buying of Texas and Pacific was
by tho same brokers who have been ac
tive In Missouri Pacific for some time
past and tho response of other railways
In tho group was purely sympathetic.
Tho operations were supposed to ho for
account of tho same pool which has fol
lowed the upward movement In these
stocks from the start. Hocking coal made
a jump on inspiicd intimations that largo
new interests were to enter tho property
and expand its field of activity. Hocking
Valley was bought on the advantage tho
bituminous coal trade in enloying fiom
tho paralysis of the anthracite trade..
The movement in Sugar was character
istic of that stock In a period of dullness
In the general market and was ascilbed
to tho prospect of an activo Reason in
the fruit canning trade. The only stock
which seemed to bo directly affected by
tho excellent corn crop' reports was Atch
ison, of which tho absorption was very
large. There were a number of minor
stoeKs to snow some strength. Brooklyn
Transit was heavy on tho poor report of
earnings for tho fiscal year. St. Louis
and San Francisco reflected some dis
appointment over tho deferred announce
ment of tho details of Its new acquire
ments. The express stocks made further
easy advances on light transactions. Tho
market closed moderately active, but Ir
regular. Total sales, 431.300 shares.
Early firmness in bonds gave way to
somo reaction. Total sales, par value,
$1,010,000. U. S. bonds were unchanged on
