One local dealer, who has
investigated the anthracite situation
in Philadelphia, says hs wsa told bp
a proiulnent operator there that en
agreement had been formed between
the Pennsylvania Railway, the Phila?
delphia and Reading and otter
railways not to transfer their ears for
Southern shipments. It is said they
fear the cars wUl not be returned
This statement. If reliable, might mean
that even if anthracite Is soon avail?
able for Southern markets It will be
all but Impossible to get It to thesn.
The car shortage over the country
showed a slight Improvement met
week according; to the reports of the
Railway Age-Gazette, which announced
n decrease of more than 1.300 In the
net shortage for the United States.
The claim is made Chat the car short?
age is largely Imaginative, anyway.
It Is said that shippers, alarmed by
rumors of impending shortages, order
100 cars when they need but fifty.
They get the fifty, but a shortage of
an equal number is reported.
In this connection, the statement of
j President White In bis annual report to
[ the Richmond. Frederlckaburg and Po
< to mac Railroad stockholders yesterday
morning Is noteworthy. He said that
net earnings for the peat year tad
been lowered, partly by reason of the
high price of coal. Railroad msnsgers
over the country claim that they do pot
have earnings sufficient to provide the
equipment for handling the traffic, end
In turn account for their decreased

of coal, which w ceased, the coal deal
