THE PITTSBURG- DISPATCH, TUESDAY,- JANUARY -8, - 1889.
EMPTY ICE HOUSES.
Serious Results Are Likely to Fol
low the Mild Winter of 1888-9.
20T US ICE CAKE HARVESTED YET.
An Advance In Prices Next Summer Feared
bj -111 Consumers.
A PANIC AMOSG MARPJAGEABLE MEN
"Ice cream will be dearer next summer
"Great Scott! Tou don't mean it, do
The first remark came from a group of
Italians on Virgin alley. It was close
enough to one of those cheap ice cream
factories to be considered an authoritative
announcement. The second exclamation
sprang from the lips of a young man passing
by. He had halted instantly upon over
hearing the words. Evidently he was
marriageable, but had expected to go single
through the next heated term.
" if we don't have some mighty cold
weather the balance of the winter," contin
ued the Italian vender.
"Oh!" ejaculated the young friend of the
ladies. He passed on the to signal service
"How do you make that out?" coldly
inquired the ever-present reporter."
"No cold weather not a bit of ice yet
open winter until February can't make
ice cream without ice ice scarce in spring
and summer bigger prices Italian poor
Ford Committee charge more for icecream
because we pay more for ice see?"
"With that idea in his mind the newspaper
man visited florists, butchers, beer sellers
and even undertakers. In each and every
instance they could only echo the query:
"Where's the ice to come from for next
WHAT THEY MOST FEAR.
They are all perplexed. The one para
mount fear is that the scarcity of ice which I
will result from the mild winter will cause
Higher prices. Pork and meat packing
companies which have not got artificial ice
makers are already caught. A few are be
ing supplied with small quantities of ice
from Western beef dressing houses. The
others simply do without.
Local ice dealers are discouraged. There
is not a pond, river or lake in "Western
Pennsylvania that has yet produced a single
cake of ice thick enough to put in the
chute. At this time last winter one dealer
had 1,200 tons already stored and was as busy
as he could be. Lake Erie, which is usually
a bountiiul source ot supply for Allegheny
county, has not forwarded as much as a car
load lor shipment from Erie up to yester
day. The railroads report a big difference
to this date in the amount of ice they carried
up to January 10 from Erie and Chautauqua
lakes and from points in Ohio.
The Chautauqua Lake Ice Company is
the largest doing business in the city. Mr.
"Wilson, the Secretary, said yesterday after
noon in reply to the reporter's questions:
"We have not yet been able to harvest any
ice for next summer's trade. Chautauqua
XOT TET JTROZEN OYER.
Usually at this time of the year we have a
considerable quantity of ice stored. But
this winter has been so open that the very
little cold weather we have had has brought
us no ice. However, it may turn out cold
enough yet in January and February, and
the winter may be so late that in the end
the crop will be large. "While we have not
bad anything to do this season yet, we are
"Will the open weather thus far experi
enced cause an advance in the price of ice
next summer?" asked the writer.
"We cannot answer that yet," replied
Mr. Wilson. "It all depends entirely on
the severity or mildness of the winter yet to
come. It might be possible that in the next
two months we will have weather cold
enough to make up in the quantity of ice
lacking in December and early January."
"What is the ice tonnage ot Lake Chau
tauqua?" "We could hardly tell that without
figuring from our ibooks. But the con
sumption of Lake Chautauqua ice in Pitts
burg alone amounts to about 100,000 tons."
TITTSBUEG'S FATED CANNON.
Tbe Remnants of the Balnsworth
Brousbt Back to tbe City.
The pieces of the ill-fated Pittsburg steel
gnn have arrived in the city, and are now
lying in the freight yards of the Pennsyl
vania toad. Superintendent Hainsworth,
of the Hainsworth Steel Company, will
have them removed to the works on Twenty
sixth street, where a careful examination of
the pieces will be made in order to more
fully satisfy himself as to the causes of the
gun's failure. The result will not be known
for several days. It there is any hope of
final success in casting steel guns another
attempt will be made by Superintendent
"While the fragments were en route to this
city from Annapolis on the Pennsylvania
road, one of the pieces fell from the freight
car at If ineveh station. It lay unnoticed
on the track until the Fast Line on its way
from New York to Pittsburg ran into the
obstruction. The onlv damage done was
the breaking of the engine pilot.

girl, with brown hair, blue eyes and heavy
eyebrows, and two of her upper front teeth
are partially decayed. Her mother prom

THE! CAN DO THE BLOWING,
Bn Pittsburg Coal Men Will Reno the
Fronts in Cincinnati.
The managers of the new Huntington
Railroad into Cincinnati from the West
Virginia and Kentucky coal fields have
gotten it into their heads that they can
knock out the Pittsburg coal in supplying
Cincinnati with cheap fuel. The toad is
200 miles long, but they propose to deliver
coal into Cincinnati for SI 52J per ton (25
bushels), which can be retailed at 52 25.
The price of Pittsburg coal there is about
53 per ton, retail. A number of Pittsburg
coal operators were seen yesterday about
this new rival; but the report didn't strike
terror, nor even a shudder, into their hearts.
Said Captain Jutte, for example:
It sounds very well on paper; but I would
like to see it done before I will
believe it. I really don't know anything about
the new road, and, as I sell bnt little coal In
Cincinnati, it doesn't wrong me.
Captain Marsh McDonald That's cheap
enough; bnt I don't think they can best us. I
am going down to Cincinnati, and while there
will make an investigation. When I come
hack I will tell yon all about it.
Captain J. M. Risber 'I know this is to be a
coal road: bnt It can't hurt us verv much. Like
all other poor coals taken to Cincinnati, it will
have a tendency to keep down our prices. It is
nonsense to say that West Virginia and Ken
tucky coal equals the Pittsburg article. That
idea was exploded lone ago. It is soft and
flabby, and, when placed under a boiler, hums
up like so much tinder. It does not possess tbe
beating qualities ot Pittsburg coal, and I have
always lonnd that people would rather have
the Monongahela coal than any other soft fnel,
when they can get it. The competition of the
Panhandle and Hocking Valley coal is nothing
at all, an t the Kanawha river coal is of such
poor quality that it doesn't stand anywhere in
comparison with the pure, bald variety from
this neighborhood. This coal road inavniake
big claims, but nill go no further than that.
They had better do something before they talk.
The Annual Work Commenced To-Day by
Charles A. Ashburner.
Sir. Baird Halberstadt, of Pottsville, re
cently superintendent and mining engineer
of a Virginia coal and iron company, and
formerly an assistant on the State Geological
Survey, has just come to Pittsburg to assist
51 r. Charles A. Ashburner in collecting the
statistics of the coal mines of the United
States Tor the United States Geological
Mr. Ashburner has had charge of this
work for the Government for a number of
years, and his annual reports have proved
of such value to practical coal men and the
coal trade throughout the States that lie
proposes this year, with Mr. Halberstadt's
assistance, to extend the practical scope of
WESTINGHODSE BUILDLNG BRACED.
The Cracks ITnve Proved Ominous, and the
Walls Are Very Weak.
The reports made about the cracks in the
great "Westinghouse building, on the corner
of Penn avenue and Ninth street, sometime
ago, have turned out to be prophetic of ex
isting danger. A careful examination of
the building, instituted last Saturday,
proved that in some portions the building is
Yesterday work was commenced to put
up several iron braces along the center
walls where the greatest weight bears down
on the foundation.
A Suicide's Request.
