Northumberland County Com
missioners Employ Sckol to
Finish Appraisement
Sanbnrr, P-. July 7.—Northumber
land County Commissioners have ap
pointed W. P. Sckol, Scranton coal
land expert, to make an expert ap
praisement of anthracite properties
in the county anthracite for taxable
purposes for the three years, start
ing January 1, last. In conjunction
with mining corporations engineers
he will make a personal examination
and report within 30 days. The mat
ter has been hanging fire for more
than three weeks, due to a disagree
ment of thp commissioners as to
whether a county engineer or an out
side expert should be employed, it is
For more than a year there has
been an agitation for revision up
wards of anthracite mining property
values in Northumberland county,
where there are huge deposits of an
thracite. said to be the third most
valuable in the United States. The
present valuation is 317,000.000 of a
total valuation of 315,000,000 in the
entire county.
The County Commissioners ap
pointed T. Ellsworth Davies, of
Scranton, to make an appraisement.
He died when he had made only a
partial report, and since then noth
ing more has been done.
Mr. Davies' statement to the Com
missioners showed that Northumber
land county has an area of 160
square miles, 50 square miles or 32,-
102 acres, are within the coal meas
ures. The coal deposits in the coun
ty are controlled by the Philadelphia
and Reading Coal and Iron Company,
the Lehigh Valley Coal Company, the
Susquehanna Collieries Company and j
the Girard Estate.
Coal deposits, according to this re
port, originally were 4,011,852,000
tons of anthracite, from which 211,-
141,05s tons had been removed, leav
ing 3,803,710,965 tons remaining in
the ground. With an assessment at
a nominal 317,000,000, while the value
at retail of unmined coal is more
than 324.000,000,000 approximately
it is declared that the assessment
could with reason be increased sev
eral hundred per cent.
When the tri-ennial assessment of
three years ago was made, pea coal,
or No. 6, as it is sometimes called,
retailed at 33.75 a ton in Sunbury,
which is twenty miles from the
mines. Since then it has gone to 38.20
a ton. an increase of more than 150
per cent. Allowing for increased j
costs of production, including labor j
and materials about the mines, it is
asserted by taxpayers that taxes
should be boosted considerably.

In Midst of Bountiful Harvest
Almost Impossible to Se
cure Sufficient Help
New Bloomflcld, Pa., July 7.—Al
though many workers have been
released through the cessation of
| many war industries and many Per
ry countians have come home since
the demobilization of the Army, the
farm labor shortage, felt in the
county during the past several years,
continues bad this year. This, too,
despite the fact that wages offered
for farm work are far in excess of
those offered during previous years.
In the midst of the harvest sea
son, county farmers have adopted
several plans to solve the difficulty.
In many instances, wives and daugh
ters are going into the fields and
are helping to do some of the lighter
work. Travelers on the main line
of the Pennsylvania Railroad have
noticed large number of women so
employed. In other instances the
farmers work together, thereby per
forming their work more efficiently.
