With the re-assembling of congress this week will bd resumed tho tierce, but not noisy, fiht that is waging be tween friends of American industry and those foes of it who arc uppermost in tbe councils of the present WJN and means committee. The particular brunch of this struirple, which has for iis purpose the retention of a proteclivf duty on bituminous coal imports, is of especial interest to Borantooiana and other residents of the anthracite region because the freeing of Nova Scotinn coal would surely cut away from our anthracite industry u considerable and a growing market for the smaller siz", nuch as buckwheat nnd pea, vbic!i are profitably utiliz-d in many factory fur naces along the Atlantic seaboard. .Stu dents of the coal trade concur in the prediction that a desirable future awaits the attempt to redeem the little grades of anthracite, but they also ad mit that this future would be sorioutiy impaired by the unrestricted entrain1 of the cheaply-mined surface coal of Nova Scotia brought in syndicate ves sels and put down iu New Entilaiid and other seibo ird cities at a mere fraction of tbe freight curt unfairly put ou an thracite by the rail carrying corpora tions. The Washington Post, discussing this subject recentlv, said: "The shipment of coal from Virginia and West Vir uini'i to New England has grown to enormous proportions. There is ship ped annually from Newport News, the terminus or the Chesapeake and Ohio railroad, 1,000.000 tonsof coal to points along the northern and New Eaglan I coast. A similar amount goes from Lambert's Point, near Norfolk, the ter minus of the Norfolk and Western railroad, The shipment of this ooal means not only an immtns revenue for the railroads, but upon it depends the operation of thd extensive 001 tields in Virginia and West Virginia, the employment of thousands of min ers, and the service of a large ll at of ships, with all their officers und men it is claimed by those who are inter ested in this matter that the placing of coal upon tho free list will close the mines, stop the running of freight trains, and seud to the wharvs (tie snip; that are now engaged in tbe coastwise coal trade. Of course the endeavor to secure a duty on coal will be fought with great bitterness by the syndicate that has just secured acres and acres of coal tields in Nova Scotia coal that lies in thick veins close to the surface, and so near to the sea that a few miles of rail road will be sufficient to place it in the holds of schooners, a very different condition of affairs than exists along the line of the two great trunk lines al ready mentioned, which have to hum several hundred miles to the nearest seaport. The tight of tbe syndicate to save its investment, and the struggle of tbe coal roads to save their business will be one of the most noticeable fea tures of tbe tariff tight, and will be none the less interesting because of the fact that it will uot bj fought upon 1 1 1 - surface." Statistics of the new cars aud loco motives built in the United States dur ing the year 1893 show that in engines and passenger curs the record, as com pared with previous years, is not so bad as was to have been expected, but the number of new freight cars has fallen eff fnin 9S.150 in 1893 to 50.0S3 in 1893. The statistics are gathered from the principal manufacturers throughout the country (but do not in clude railroad companies' shops), and they are Bumraarized as follows: Loco motives built this year, 1953; last year, 2 036. Passenger cars this year, 1,971); last year, 3.195. The 50,000 new freight Can make an addition of only about i per cent, to the total stock of freight cars in the country, though iu capacity the addition is much larger, the new curs biting built to carry twenty to thirty tons, while tLe averag capacity of all cars in sarvico is much less. The business is now very dull, dspcially in passenger cars, an unusul number of which were built early tn the year to accommodate World's fair traffic. Of the iifty car shops in the county ten, including one or two large ones, are now wholly idle. The Pitteton Gazette argues edito rially for better organization among anthracite mine official) and saya: "It is strange enough to occasion surprise among visitors to this section that in the vast anthracite territory of Penn sylvania, with its thousands of men iu charge of important work that la to n considerable extent the same, there la not in existence u aingle organization whose object is to disseminate facts and new ideas connected with the bus iness. Important questions of engi neering and mining are continually coming up in these days of advance ment that wonld furnish profitable subjects for discusiion at a mining in stitute. Tbe organization might b' local or general, and ita tnembershl:. might include even those workmen who are sufficiently interested to de sire knowledge other than that to be secured by actual experience. Tbe matter la one that might well engage tbe attention of foremen, engineers nnd other mine workers Hereabout." The) Individual Operators' association baa for its purpose au interchange of viewe aud newa of this character, and would dobtleas welooin the co-operation of mine officials whe. this would not interfere with the normal worklnga of the collieries. Miscellaneous Industrial News. Schuylkill miners' wages for January will be 3 per cent, abovo the 13 60 ba-is. A reduction of the wages of all the em ployes of the Bethlehem lion company ooraide the ordnance department has been announced. The cut ranges from S to 80 per cent.
