OP P., L. & W.
WAS ORGANIZED BY NEW YORK
First Road Was Built from Scranton
to Great Bend to Connect with the
Erie Road at That Point Way the
First "locomotive Was Brought
Here Various Sections of the Road
Subsequently Built D., L. & W. Is
the Second Largest Producer of An
Like tho Pennsylvania Coal company
and the Delaware and Hudson Canal
company, tho Delaware, Lackawanna
and Western llallroad company was
formed by a group of old-time New
York merchants, and so lias olways
been conducted In a manner different
from those roads originating with nnd
run by modern speculative Interests.
Throughout an existence of fifty years
It has been characterized by large and
regular earnings. Tho company had Its
origin in tho purchase of large tracts
of land In Slocum Hollow, then part of
IjIikui'iic county, Pennsylvania, by the
.Seruntons, who owned tho Oxford Iron
furnace, In the western part of New
Although It was known that coal un
derlaid the territory, the land was pur
chased at an extremely low price, ow
ing to its inaccessibility. This was
some time In the forties. The develop
ment of the property soon began and
tho village of .Scranton was located.
The idea was to produce coal for the
Oxford furnace, as well as for market,
and for this purpose a railroad lino to
carry tho product wan built north from
Scranton to a connection with tho Kric
railroad at Great Head, a few miles
from l:lnghamton. This was called the
I.cggett's dap railroad, the name being
changed April 14th, 1S51, to Lacka
wanna and Western.
As showing the crudity of railroad
operations at that time there might be
mentioned that tho first locomotive
placed on this road was a second-hand
machine which the owners had discard
ed on a short road which they owned In
New York state. After having laid
under a wagon shed for several months
It was put on a raft and floated to
Plttston, whence is was run over the
rails of the Pennsylvania Coal com
pany's railroad to a point near Scran
ton, where it was put on the new road.
After an experience of a couple of
years, the roundabout route via Great
Bond and tho 15rlo railroad was found
to bo inconvenient and a more direct
line east over the Pocono mountains was
built. This was a heavy undertaking,
and tnxed the resources of the new
company to the utmost, tho cost of de
livering material in that section (al
most Inaccessible) being very great.
However, the line was opened to the
Delaware river, May 27, 18.17, and at
the same time the Wnrrcn Railroad of
New Jersey, upon which the Oxford
furnace was located, was leased, thus
affording a collection with the Central
Railroad o Now Jersey and an outlet
to New York harbor. Some time be
fore the completion of the road to the
Delaware, the company which built it
consolidated with the Lackawanna and
Western, and tho whole line became
known as the Delaware, Lackawanna
and Western railroad.
In 1S(3S. the Morris and Essex railroad
was lcated, affording a somewhat bet
ter outlet to New York harbor, and In
the following year the BoOnton branch
cf the Morris and Essex wns built, Im
proving facilities still further. In tho
course of the next twelve years an ox
tensive mileage in the state of New
York was leased or built, affording di
rect outlet to Oswego and Buffalo.
SECOND LARGEST PRODUCER.
Tho Delaware, Lackawanna nnd
Western Railroad company Is .1.0 sec
ond largest producer of anthracite coal,
being exceeded only by the Philadelphia
and Reading Coal and Iron company.
There are two organizations which con
trol more tonnage, the Erie and tho
Lehigh Valley, but in both eases tho
coal Is not produced under a single
management or Individual corporate
The Delaware, Lackawanna and
Western has twenty-four mines, having
an aggregate annual output of over !,
000,000 tons. A considerable part of the
property Is located In the city of
Scranton, and more of It In Lacka
wanna township, which is Immediately
adjacent thereto. Other operations aro
located in Dickson Pity, Plymouth and
Kingston townships. The entire coal
properties are owned outright and aro
supposed to have cost less than the
properties ot any other of tho large
companies, having been In possession
of tho Delaware, Lackawanna and
Western for very many years.
As the company hns a charter ante
dating the present constitution of tho
state of Pennsylvania, It Is enabled to
carry, on the mining of coal as part of
the ,nllrond business without violating
any of tho present legal requirements.
Therefore the receipts of the coal de
partment ore Included In tho earnings
of tho railroad company, and all busi
ness pertaining to the mines is con
ducted In tho name of tho railroad
company. Coal constitutes something
more than one-half the total business
of the company, and until freight and
passenger earnings wore developed ot
luto years, was even more Important.
Tho special feature ot the company's
coal business is Its large Western ton
nage, which It hauls over Its own lino
as far as nuffalo, and the Important
tonnage placed In Central Now York,
which Is hauled to destination over Its
By not having to pro rate with any
other railroad company on this busi
ness, the tiofllo is very profitable, For
many years tho railroad was operated
strictly to tho view ot distribution of
coal, and pussenger travel wus a sec
ondary consideration. The New York
state roads to Utlca, Oswego and Syra
cuse were acquired for the purpose of
securing now markets, unit when tho
Nmv York Central Insisted on an arbi
trary late on the coal going from Syra
cuse to Buffalo, for shipment up tho
Lakes, the Delaware, Lackawanna nnd
Western built a new road from Blug
luiiuton to Buffalo, to avoid tho pay
ment of tho rata asked, thus taking
from the Central a business of a mil
lion tons per annum, which has since
grown to considerably more.
While the conservatism of tho early
owners was marked, their business

ings of the road, Impelled them to

that when the now management took
hold, about three yeurs ago, It had an
excellent foundation to work upon, and
new equipment In tho way of heavier
curs and locomotives has been intro
duced to good advantage, and tho at
tention of the public has been drawn to
tho advantages of the line as a route
for passenger travel. It Is by thirty
miles the shortest route between New
York and Buffalo, and If tho manage
ment cared to subordinate the move
ment of freight so as to permit extra
ordinary passenger time, It could han
dle tho passenger traflle between tho
two cities more expeditiously than any
other line. It now makes as good time
on its fast trains as the majority of
PROPERTY IS VALUABLE.
While the dividends of the Delaware.
Lackawanna and Western have re
mained at the sumo figure for many
years, recognition of the great value ot
the coal property has led to a great
appreciation in the capital stock, as in
dicated in current quotations, and
while the exact value of tho shares Is
problematical and largely dependent
upon the degree with which the prop
erty is developed and tonnage in
creased, it Is probably safe to say that
the quotations have never exceeded the
true value of the stock.

not only of certain railroad Interests,
but of the Erie soft coal mines as well.
This position he held until January 1st,
1899, when he became superintendent of
the New York, Susquehanna nnd West

railroad, then recently taken over by
tho Erie, resigning this position on the
10th of June, In tho same year, to take
charge of the coal mining Interests of
the Delaware, Lackawanna and West
Practically every bridge on the Buf
falo division (west of Blughumton) Is

road was built, only twenty years ago,
Is was considered a model line, and
that the management should go to the
great expense of rebuilding all bridges
on a far heavier plan may well be
tuken as on Indication of some move
looking towards Increased business.

SAYS MEN ARE RESPONSIBLE
FOR LIMITED WORK.
Calls Attention to tho Fact That the
Mines, Instead of Being in tho
Hands of Seven or Eight Men, Aro
tho Property o a Vast Army of
Investors Great and Small Earn
ings of tho Anthracite Mine3 Are
Not What They Are Commonly
Supposed to Bo.
Abrain S. Hewitt, whose recent state
ments regarding the situation of tho
strike In the anthracite coal Holds has
caused discussion, was asked at Bar
Harbor, Monday, by a New York Times
representative, to reply to the state
ments made by President Mitchell and
other prominent sympathizers with tho
minors' cause, following Mr. Hewitt's
utterances of recent dale.
Mr. Hewitt was averse to continuing
the discussion at this particular time.
He said that ho felt ho had discharged
himself of a duty In giving out the nl
rcudy published interview, and that so
far he had seen no communications In
rebuttal which prompted him to make
a reply. His Interview had' accom
plished, he said, the purpose for which
It wos intended. It hud opened up a
fruitful Held ot discussion that had
brought froiti mnny sources nn lllumln
nting light which was being turned
upon all sides of the question, and wns
giving to the public the opportunity ot
passing judgment upon tho strike ns
the operator sees It. Mr. Hewitt stated
that he did not wish to be drawn fur
ther Into a controversy.
In reply to a number of questions,
Mr. Hewitt answered casually. When
asked as to the surplussago ot labor
In tho coal Holds and the limited hours
of work, he said:
THE CAUSE OP IT.
Thero Is more than siifllcleut labor In
the coal Holds at the present time, and
the union is Itself responslblo In a meas
ure for tho limited amount of work and
resultant pay accorded each miner. For
the men being made members ot tho or
ganization It becomes necessary to so,
subdivide tho work among them, that
each man is employed a shorter number
of hours with u consequent deduction of
wo go earnings, Tho union seeks to have
eacli man paid the same wages for this
shortened time as was paid when the sup
ply of labor was less and the time ot
employment longer. Tho men then were
paid sufficiently high wages to maintain
n "standard ot living" that was satis
factory, as Is witnessed In tho case of
many of the mines, notably the Lehigh
Coal and Navigation company. It was
because of this satisfactory "standard
ot living" and wages that the excess la
bor was attracted to the coal fields.
Speaking of President Mitchell's
statement that the coal strike had little
political significance, Mr. Hewitt mere
ly cited the Instance of the last presi
dential campaign, when the labor vote
became a most important question In
national politics and forced a compro
mise when there would have probably
otherwise have been a long-drawn
light. Continuing, he said: '
There Is ouo phaso of this strike to
which the public as a whole has not had
its attention drawn. It is a mistake to
suppose that the mines are in the hands
of seven or eight individuals who alone
reap thctrcwards of victory or suffer tho
disadvantages of defeat in this crisis.
The mines belong to many thousands of
stockholders and bondnoldors, who out
number the men that aro employed. It is
a vast Held divided up among all sizes
of investors. Speaking of the earnings of
the anthracite mines, while they are Im
mensely productive and valuable Indus
tries, their earnings are not what they
aro commonly supposed to be. In the
case of ono of the oldest companies do
ing business in Pennsylvania the earn
lugs for the last sixty years hiivo aver
aged approximately li per cent.
THE WAY SUGGESTED.
Tho men who today aro administering
these concerns are executing tho duties
ot their office, nut for their personal ends,
but in the Interest of a very largo public.
According to tho statements that hiivo
appeared as coming from tho miners'
union, It has been suggested that tho
question ot higher wuges for shorter
honrs bo met by the operators by raising
tho price of coal to tho public, which
must bo mado to suffer tho compromise.
Mr. Hewitt drew from the case of G.
B. Markle & Sons an illustration point
ing to the responsibility of tho miners'
organizations. In the face of repeated
violations of contract and their agree
ment to submit all local differences to
arbitration nnd not to be influenced by
the disputes arising In other quarters,
they nevertheless In 1900, at Mr. Mitch
ell's solicitation, notwithstanding that
their condition was eminently satisfac
tory, Joined the general strike that was
called by tho United Mine Workers; In
that year. It Is this Irresponsibility,
the absence of corporate qualities that
calls for a firm stand on the part of tho
operators, who are In duty bound to
guard their Just business interests, it
Mr. Hewitt commented on the fact
that the public seems not to be awaro
that there is growing up a vast labor
trust, fraught with a far greater men
ace to Industrial conditions than many
of the so-called monopolies that are
now occupying tho attention of the en
