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
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r, knowing this, have withdrawn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
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:

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

The Bethlehem Iron company is serious
ly affected by the coal itnKes. Only one
small department in the ordnsrios works

closed two weeks f of want of bituminous
coal, and nearly 8,000 men have been
thrown out of employment. The company

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
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.
