THE SC17ANT0N TKlRTTtfE-MONDAY MORNTN"G," JUKE 11, 1894.
T E The bituminous coul operators of Central Pennsylvania luive re afflrmeil their previous deterruinatiou to not grant the uJvance asked for by the striking miuera. Unless the latter ro turu to work, it ia understood that their places will 1 fille I with new men, who, 1f necessary, will be put to work under police protection. Presi dent Janney, of tlid Hnntindon and liro.td Top railroad, in speaking about the situation Saturday, said that I he lust few days showed evidence of re sumption, sspeolally i'i the West Vir ginia coal fields. While during the height of the strike, his road, he said, had been carrying only from 300 to 800 tons of co il daily. it carried on Weil lusday 1,850 tons, and on Thursday 1,000 tons. Mr. Janney is firmly of the opinion that when resumption takes place it will be with a rush and that the railroads will m !; up all of their lost coal tonnage before the year is out. While since tho promulgation of the new Juno circular new orders for an thracite have not been abundant, sufli cient old ones are on the companies' books to keep production moviug for several weeks to come. Moreover the western car demand is good and ttie line and local trade is satisfactory. The market promises to be easy, there fore, for some time. The operators are getting thoir mines in good condition ugain, and by tomorrow practically every colliery will be in shape unless more rain should com. So many iron and ntel plants havd been compelled to close for want of fuel or want of raw material, Bays the Philadelphia Inquirer, that trad is al most at a standstill. Manufacture lira not uble to iill order and consuiu r, knowing this, have withdrawn from the market. Of conrss there is some little business doing, lut it is for email lots only and lor early delivery and at higher prices than consumers are willing to pay in tho future From these temporary and artificial condi tions th?rj can be no Moape until the coal strike is ended and business all over the country returns to its normal state. Meanwhile the few produc iri of iro"n who ars in a position to fill urgent demands can name practically tnelr own prices. But this does not make a market and only confirms co n sumers in their determination to hold aloof until the future is clearer. It is uoticeablo, however, that opinion is turning in favor of the position that higher prices for iron products will rule this fall. Ore is distinctly firmer intone; coal and coke will be no cheaper nor will freight rates be any lower. When the now cruiser. Minneapolis, which made her gr jut record last week while usiug anthracite, makes her nest speed tests, with her bunkers filled with bituminous, an exoellent xeries o comparisons can be druwu between the two fuels. It appears: to bo the be lief of tbe ship's bnilders) and engineers that she will a id two knots to her speed per hour by r.sa of soft coal. Kven should this prediction be realized, which is doubtful, it will still remain a great feather in anthracite's cap that the fastest time yet steamed by a war ci tuner shonid have boon recorded to the credit of hard coal. If the items of increased comfort and cleanliness be taken into account, the superiority of anthracite will not uj opjn to itujs tiou. The statement of shipments o! an thracite co.U (approximated), for the week ended June 2, 1891, compared wdth the corresponding perioi last year, is as follows: MM. 1803. Regions. Tons. Tons. yoiuiuif bs:,m 37i',.N71 Inc 105,ii2ii Lehisb HT,02il 117,777 Dec 751 bciiuyikill 2M,lifi 2JU.472 luc 23,ti;i Total t&l.KW 825,120 Dee 12,G10 Total for yoar to date 14.801.7M, 17.378.191 Dec 2.936,401) The American vice consul at D.irno rara la of tbe opinion that the coal from the United States has a chance in Brit isli Uuiana. He writes that there have boon recently shipped a number of car goes of coal from tho port of Baltimore, the use of which bas been exceedingly satisfactory. Indeed so much so that thsre seefua to he a movement toward the introduction of American coal. The Sproston Book and Foundry com pany, the largest consumer of coal in the colony, furnished tbe American consul with a statement in referonceto the relative merits of English and American eoals. This snys: ''In Au gust of last year we imported a cargo of anthrn.cite coal from America at a cost of $,r 10 (cost nnd insurance, (8.05; freight. $3.00.) Welsh conl at that time was selling at f8 oil, and freight! were about $.2.C 1. For steamer pur poses wo prefer tlie Welsh, even at the enhanced price, but wo are bound to admit that tho American is a cleaner, harder and better storing coal and well adapted for estate purposes. It is very similar to what is known in Finland as West Hartley steam coal, and we should imagine, taking one year with another, could be landed here at con siderable less price than the E'iglish production. " The consul adds, by way of information, that there am about eighty sugar estates and several facto ries that are using coal importod from England, which, it is thought, might with a little effort b) diverted thore from to the ndvautage of the producers of the United States. A trolley scandal of some maenituds has teen discovered in Washington, if we may believe the newspipers of that city. It is said that five senators have boen Hctiug in sncli a manner with reforenoo to ponding stroet car legislation us to give color to tho sm picios that when they have sufficiently depreciated the stock of certain roads, they will buy these lines in and ro-seli to the Philadelphia syndicate which is well known in Scranton, nud whico has long tried to e,e a strong foothold In Washington. This anonymous "expose" would have little weight ordinarily; tut coming In such close proximity to' the sugar trust scandal, it has appar ently an ngly look And the worst thing of all is that Senator Chaudler, of New Hampshire, practically con fiims it. "I have no hesitation in say ing," he is quoted us having remarked to a reporter for the Washington News, "that I believe there is a move ment on band to depress tbe stock of tho street railroad companies in Washing ton in tbe Interest of people who would acquire them. I have heard enough to make me believe this." Minor Industrial Notes: The Carlisle Manufacturing company has received a contract for tho building of ninoty-flvo new freight cars and will re same work on or about July 1. The meeting of the Trunk Line associa tion, which was to have been held in New GENERAL OF INDUSTRIES York last Thursday, to consider granting an increased percentage of New York pas senger business td the Lehigh Valley, has been postponed until some timo this week. It is attain aunouueed that tho Weathorly nincliiue shops are being removed. Several men havo been suspended, it is said iu defl.nl tsly, The Sheridan. Lebanon county, iron company, is erecting a concentrator to ex tract tho iron by inaguotism from tho Cornwall ore. Tho increased output nf hard coal has Compelled the Lehigh Valley railroad to borrow all tho cms possible, the Pennsyl vania railroad furnished n Urge number. The shipments west are very heavy. Lvery wheel on tho entire systoai is turning. The LoUfSrllte and Nashville havo noti fied shippers in Memphis thnt they will in a few days pnt into offeot a sweeping re duction in freight rates from nil Ohio river points and .Memphis to tho Southwest tor iltory. It is rumored that tho Lehigh end Wilkes-Ham-Coal Cpnipnoy will npperato the upper lifts of the No, 4 inim-a this week. It is also hinted that the coal will be pulled by loktes to the Tcetckow col liery for preparation in order to allow the steam generated nt No, 4 to go to the many pumps in operation. . : The Bethlehem Iron company is serious ly affected by the coal itnKes. Only one small department in the ordnsrios works is in operation. The works have been closed two weeks f of want of bituminous coal, and nearly 8,000 men have been thrown out of employment. The company has detet mined to start its paddle mill today with nnthracitn coal.

Or don't you notice the difference in our prices, and the prices usually charged even by the ctores that claim to sell very low. Why the simple fact is we are away below any store in this valley. Yes, we repeat we are away be low any concern in this valley or in the state in prices on first class goods so far as we can learn. We do not handle a large 'line of fancy goods, but we do have a big stock and full as sortment of strictly FIRST CLASS staple goods. Nor do we use any one or two articles as bait to draw trade. Our plan is to cut the price 011 everything just as much as we possi bly can so that you will very seldom find a single article in our store that we are not sell ing for less than it can be bought anywhere else and furthermore while we are always do ing our best to get at and keep the prices down we never for a moment loose sight of quality. No article can come into our store unless it is at least standard quality but is much oftsner EXTRA than otherwise. We have a large trade and we often think when we put the selling price on an article and know what the same good3 are invariably sold at that it is strange why we do not sell all the goods in our line that i3 sold in the city and have to conclude that it certainly is not on ac count of quality or price, but must be for some other reason. While we did net intend to quote any prices in this article we will men tion a few just to prove what we say and see if you don't wonder also if what we say is cor rect why we do not sell all or nearly all o? the good3 sold. Of course each dealer has friends who trade with him for friendships sake know ing all the time that they are loosing money by so doing. Now while we appreciate friend ship yet we want every person who buy3 goods of us to be fully satisfied that they get good value for their money or we would actually prefar to miss the trade. But here are some prices a3 proof of our statements, we avoid tho large articles simply to show that we do not confine our low prices to some of the lead ing articles: Canned Tomatoes, extra quality, usually sold at 12ic, we are selling for 8c. Bartlett's Shoe Blackingjarga box, regular price, 10c; we give 3 boxes for 10c, Vienna Bread, large loaf, never sold less than 1Q&; you cm buy it from us 2 loaves for 15c, Fancy Table Butter, that sells for 20 to 25c, we offer at 17c Tea that brings 75c a pound and in some stores $1, we only ask 4oc And Tea that sells for 40c you can buy from us at 1 9c, Gloss Starch, pound packages, worth 8c, we will sell at 4, Corn Starch, also is usually sold at 8, ve sell it at AH, And a 3-pound can of G oss Starch that you would have to pay 25 for anywhere else, you can buy of us at 14c Abie's Fie Preparation, always sold for 10c or 3 for 25, we offer you at 5c Cigars that could not bo bought elsewhere for less than $1,25 a box, we sell at 60c, And aside from offering goods much lower than any other establishment in the state we behove wo have one of tne most complete stocks of groceries in the state. Whenever anything new in our line comes on the market and has merit ve add it to our stock. We wholesale a great many goods and at figures lower than exclusive wholesale houses. Our cigar and tobacco stock is complete. Our tea and coffee contains as tine a line of both as can be brought together. Our confectionary stock includes the fine grades in abundance a3 well as the more staple varieties of confection. We serve as fine Soda Water at 3c a glass a3 can be had in the city at any price. In our butcher shop ve handle as much and as fine a grade of beef and ether meats as any in Scranton and from 2 to 4 cents a pound lower than any shop in tho city. On Tuesdays', Thuusdays' and Saturdays' we have a full assortment of green vegetables 25 per cent below market rate3. Finally we think we are sefe in saying that we give more and better goods for the money that any concern in Pennsylvania. Here are some of tho reasons we have for wondering why we do not sell all or nearly all of the groceries sold in Scranton. Come and see if you can fine us misrepresenting facts in any of the above assertions. We would like to have your trade or part of it and will make it worth your while to buy of U3. THE F. P.
