The price of coal is going up all over tho

MRS. LANQTRY WODLD NOT COMB.
She Refneea to Attend Court Because It
Would Make Her III.
Hall & Blandy, a firm of lawyers, got a
$200 judgment against Maurice Barrymoro
for professional servicos many months ago.
When they Sought to execute it
they found that Maurice had craft
ily hidden his assets. They brought
supplementary proceedings in the
City Court to compel him to toll whero his
assets were. Mme. Lily Langtry, in whose
company he is leading man, was subpoenaed
to come to court at 10 o'clock this morning
and tell how much she paid him a month.
The Lily didn't seo fit to appear in court,
so she sent Abe Hummol with a physician's
certificate that litigntion would make
her ill. The chances are that tho
great amount of ' fresh paint that
was spread all over tho court-room
would have made her ill anyway.
Judgo Ehrlioh listened solomnly to
the reading of the physician's certifi
cate and adjourned the case until
two weeks from Tuesday. Maurice Barry,

him from Messrs. Hall Blandy's soarching

WAS FATHER BRENNAN JOKING?
What r Friend of the Newark Priest Says
About the MeGlynn Caae.
ISPIOIAL TO TBX EVKHIHO W0BLD.1
Newauk, Oct. 28. Tho denial of Dr.
MeGlynn of tho reported sUt n.-.nt of
Father Brennan, of this city, at Pittsburg,
to tho offect that MeGlynn was going back
on Honry George and wonld return to the
Catholio Church, has caused a big sensation
hero. The Rev. Brennan is one of tho curates
in St. James's Churoh, in this city. He is at
present out of town, having gone to Chicago
to attend the consecration of Bishop Burke
as missionary bishop. A telegram was re
ceived at the parochial residence this morn
ing from Father Brennnn, stating that ho
had been interviewed at Pittsburg by a re
porter, who insisted upon it that he was a
bishop and would not bo. convincod to tho
contrary. In response to the reporter's ques
tions ho had given him his views upon a num
ber of questions. Ho did not mention having
spoken to the 'oportor on the MeGlynn mat
ter, and Fathor Cody, tho pastor of the
chureh, sold he did not believo that Fathor
Brennan had made any such remarks in re
cord to Dr. McGlvun as ho is credited with
making. A gentleman who knows Father
Brennan says :
" Father Bronnon is away nnd dearly loves
a practical joko. and it is possible thai whon
the reporter insisted upon his being a bishop
ho fooled him to tho top of his boift, but I do
not boliove he ever made any such remarks

would be taken in that way."

WHEAT CROP IN THE NORTHWEST.
The Total Yield In Minnesota nnd Dakota
Will be About 80,000,000 Huahela.
triCUI, TO TBX XVXItIRO WOBLI1.1
St. Paul, Minn., Oct. 29. Tho Pioneer
Press prints tho following: Tlio wheat crop
in Minnesota and Dakota has been a subject
of much speculation. An estimate of tho
crop, based on reports from correspondents
in ovory wheat-growing county in tho Stato
and Territory, is therefore given to-day. In
May last an estimate of the crop, based on
reports from tho samo correspondents, gave
the total as 85,000,000 and 90,000,000. Tho
bases of the acreage for Minnesota are tho
figures furnished by II. Stockenstrom, As
sistant Secretary of State and Statistician,
whoso report Is made up from assessors' ro
ports. There is no doubt' that theso reports
are under the mark this year.
The average yield per aero in this Stato on
the present crop is twelve and one-half bush
els, which, on 8,048,000 acros (Mr. Stocken
strom's report), would yield 88,085,000 bush
els. In Dakota, until the present year, thero
has been no moans of obtaining official fig
ures on acreage. Tho Pioneer-Press has ro
lled on its own figures for several years, and
has found them to bo, in tho main, correct.
The increaso in acreago this year is about
four hundred thousand, making a total of
3,076,000. Tho average yield per acre is fif
teen and ono-half bushels, making tho total
crop 47,662,000. This means a total crop
for Minnesota and Dakota of 86,747,000, or
86,000,000 In round numbers.
Tho present crop of Minnesota Is 8,710,000
bushols less than the crop of 1886, reported
by tho Stato Department, and about 4,000,000
less than tho amount given by the Washing
ton Bureau. Tho amount held by tho farm
ers at tho beginning of the present crop
year, while very difficult to estimate, prob
ably did not exceed 2,000,000 bushels. Thero
was in store in Minneapolis, St. Paul and
Dulnth Aug. 1 5,800,000 more, which, added
to tho crop of 80,000,000, makes n total of
93,800,000, or 94,000,000 in round numbers, as
tho avallablo resources for all purposes.
The Minneapolis mills will need 80,000,000
bushels boforo tho next crop.

visit the town only to fly from it.
For nearly two months tho great output of
Lehigh coal has ceased to rumblo over tha
iron-shod highways in miles of loaded cars,
and Instead tho production in this valley and
in the Schuylkill region has been stimulated
to moke up. the difference The
miners are deprived of' living;
wages amounting to over $30,000 a day:
the mine operators are also finding out that
it is a costly strike They havo already
burned up about $76,000 worth of coal for
pumping, spent about $26,000 for wages of
engineors, firemen and pumpmen, and main,
tained nearly 200 mules in Idleness at a cost
of about $16,000. These are large figures,
and If to them bo added the operators' loss of
profits and of trode which cannot bo esti
mated even approximately, the figures be
come larger still.
THE) BOSSES WON'T OrVE IN.
The worst of it is, thero seems to be no
prospect of a settlement. Tho Lehigh oper
ators declare that they will not yield to tho
men. oven if no work were done for years.
On the other hand the men declare that they
will never return to work at the old rate.
Meanwhile complaints are pouring into the
headquarters of coal combinations from all
parts of the country east of the Rocky Moun
tains about the scarcity of coal. New Eng
land is clamoring for ft, though the retailers
ore asking from $8 to $6 a ton more than has
been charged for ten years.
Even highor prices obtain out West, and.
the coal barons, with the powerful aid of tho
railroads, are shrewd enough to rush all the
anthracite coal they can in that direction s
before navigation closes. New York and tho
East is the sufferer by those tactics. Retail
ors in the coal trade here anticipate great in
convenience for tho riqh nnd actual suffering
to the poor beforo tho winter is well begun. .
'While the sentiment among the coal trado
of this city is-generally adverso to any in
creaso in prices, the action of the Reading
Railroad in raising the price 25 cents, to
gether with the small supply on Tiand and
tho labor troubles, seems to dealers to point
to on advance.
Mr. E. P. Campbell, Trafflo Manager of
the Erie Rallwny, said to-day: "Coal'ia
very scarco and retail dealers aro getting
what they can for it."
Inquiry ut the office of the Communipaw
Coal Company, of Whitney & Kenmoro, and
of other wnolesale and retail dealers, showed
that there would be no surprise if the price
of coal was raised from 25 to 60 cents per ton. .
