THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE SATIRE DAT MORNING. NOVEMBER 17, 1894.
Industrial and MINE, MILL AND BAI1B0AD. A favorite contention of the people of "Wilkes-Barre Is that by virtue of the large field of virgin anthracite which lies near that city, the capital of Lu serne is yet destined to outstrip Scran ton. The Record hints at this possi bility in the) following allusion to the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Coal company's lands near Button wood. "Every seam found, In the val ley from Hanover to Nantlooke," it as serts, "is located on this magnificent property, and the coal runs to a depth of 2,200 feet. No other basin In this sec tion lies deeper than 800 feet. The seams being so far from the surface is the reason why they have not been worked long since. It will cost more to get the coal than that composing super ficial veins, but that factor no longer cuts Ice, for It is wanted now to sustain the capacity of the company and very soon it will find its way to market. The seams and their, thickness are as fol lows: George feet Mills (Kidney) 014 feet Hlllman 7 feet Baltimore 16' feet Boss , 7 , feet Bed Ash 14 feet "The last one lies very deep, but it is tf excellent quality. The Baltimore is split in two, and the Hlllman is very 'fat,' to use a common expression. At present three shafts are being sunk, the Bliss shaft and the Auchlncloss, Nos. 1 and 2. The latter are named after Mr. Sloan's son-ln-law. They are fitted up with superb machinery, a magnificent Corliss hoisting engine tha only ons in this section having been purchased for one of the openings. A first motion engine built by the Dlcksons anrt a beauty It is too has been put up at one of the other shafts. The size of the openings are 42 by 12. All the work done thus far is of a very solid, superior character, as befits an undertaking of great magnitude and possibilities. As the coal touches the deepest point In the Wyoming coal fields the danger in mining will increase very much, the gas alone promising to give unusual trouble. But then, anthracite Is being mined more scientifically every day now and the elements and treacherous strata will be confronted by brilliant minds and skilled hands reducing all danger to the minimum. How soon the great plant will be in full operation and how much fuel will be mined a day are questions that will soon be answered now and in the meantime the company and Wilkes-Barre can be congratulated on the prospect in sight. . It is a nest egg inspiring to think of and no matter what other forms of wealth the city has or may have, this one is bound to give it great prestige and be a joy and a blessing for the next hundred years." While the Record does not in so many words voice the common Luzerne be lief that as a consequence of this large natural resource- Wilkes-Barre will yet surpass Scranton, we suspect that it had this thought in mind. There is, however, little or no foundation for such a delusion. Speaking of this sub ject recently, Mayor Connell said "Do I think Scranton will cease growing when its coal is exhausted? Not a bit of it. To begin with, our coal, by the most pessimistic estimates, is good for at least a quarter of a century of con tinued mining activity. Some esti mates triple this period. But assum ing that the first estimate is correct, we have yet left to us the consolation that twenty-five years hence, at our present rate of increase, Scranton will be a city with 300,000 to 350,000 population A city of that magnitude has never been known to fall backward. By its own momentum it will keep on growing, al though perhaps not so rapidly as at present. Then, too, there's our culm. It seems quite clear to me that these immense culm banks will be the mag nets which will some of these days draw to Scranton a large number of electrical , industries, not to speak of miscellaneous shops and factories. By the way, that coal land down in Lu zerne county which they brag about is owned chiefly by Scranton capital; and nearly the whole of the coal, when mined, will have to come to this city before It can be shipped to tidewater. Consequently, Scranton will in any event remain the principal shipping center of the upper coal fields, and I ' am entirely satisfied that by the time Wilkes-Barre shall have passed the hundred thousand mark we shall have here a city three times as large." Similar pre dictions have lately been made within The Tribune's hearing by such men as Lieutenant Governor Watres, Major Warren and William Connell, There is evidently no Immediate occasion for Scrantonians to worry about the ex haustion of their coal supplies, or about the threat that WIlkes-Barreana may surpass them in the raoe for commer cial supremacy. The Herald has Information that George Van Keuren, superintendent of the Jefferson division of the Erie rail road, may soon leave Carbondale to assume the office of superintendent of WORKS BOTH WAYS. "It Is remarkable how yonr trip abroad has Improved you. "It is the use of the Carlsbad Waters that has improved me, more than my trip abroad. I have gained In flesh and strength since I used them. Many persons use them for reducing flesh, because the waters remove all un healthy tissues and superabundance of fat, but they also build up firm and solid flesh, which Is a sign of pcrfecct health, 1 also use the Carlsbad Spru del Salt early in the morning with i glass full of water. It Increases the laxative action of the same. If you ever suffer from chronic catarrh of the stomach, biliousness, gout or rheuma tlsm, I advise you to use them." '. The genuine have the signature of "Eisner & Mendelson Co., Sole Agents, New York," on every bottle. : Commercial. the transportation department of the New York, Lake Erie and Western rail road. The office is one of the highest In the gift of the directors of the company and comes next In order under that of General Superintendent C. R. Fitch, over whose signature the business has of late been conducted. A gentleman named Starr, who was suceeded at Port Jervls as superintendent of the Dela ware division by W. L. Derr, once of this city, was formerly at the head of the transportation department. If Mr. Vav Keuren accepts the appointment he will take full charge of the depart ment and his authority will extend from Jersey City, N. J., to Salamanca, N.Y. His headquarters will probably be in Jersey City. It Is expected that official announcement will be made of the proposed change today, but Just when Superintendent Van Keuren will take up his new duties if he accepts the trust cannot at this time be said. L. C. Smith, of the Tioga division, will take the superlntendency of the Jeffer son division with headquarters in Car bondale. Eckley B. Coxe has already denied one rumor in connection with his re cent resignations the one which credited him with the intention of at tempting a reorganization of the Penn sylvania Democracy. Soon we may ex pect a denial of the other rumor which has it that he is to succeed E. P. Wil bur In the presidency of the Lehigh Valley Railroad company. Meanwhile the Stockholder notes the fact that In Philadelphia stock jobbing circles It Is thought that "a large deal of some kind is afoot, whether In connection with railroad or coal affairs, or a combina tion of both, is not stated. It is not be lieved that Mr. Coxe would resign the positions referred to without an im portant motive. Hints were thrown out yesterday that his road the Dela ware, Susquehanna and Schuylkill would be absorbed by one of the larger lines, and the Lehigh Valley, the Jer sey Central and the Lackawanna were all mentioned in that conectlon. At present the firm has a traffic arrange ment with the Lehigh Valley, whereby the Delaware, Susquehanna and Sshuylklll uses its (the Lehigh Valley) tracks from a connecting point In the coal regions to tidewater. It is a pay ing agreement, and the Lehigh Valley would be a heavy loser were the con tract revoked. It is also stated that it is proposed to form a Junction with the Lackawanna, which would make the Delaware, Susquehanna and Schuylkill an independent seaboard line, and ma terially increase its power as a factor in the anthracite coal trade." MINOR INDUSTRIAL NOTES The Edith furnace of the Halnsworth Steel company, at Allegheny, made during the month of October 7,744 gross tons of Bessemer pig iron. The largest record for one week was 1,800 tons and for one day 282 tons. The plant of the Greensburg Steel company, of Greensburg, Pa., which has been idle for some time and Is at present owned by J. C. Jamison, of Pittsburg, will probably be put . in operation in a short time. A new cruci ble furnace of twelve pots has recently been added to the plant. A project is under way at Galveston, Tex., for the erection of a rolling mill and blast furnaces on Galveston Island for the manufacture of merchant bar and structural iron, steel rails and barbed wire. Sevral hundred thousand dollars will be invested In the plant if the efforts to organize it are successful. President Simon Borg, of the Susque hanna and Western, lessee of the Wilkes-Barre and Eastern, says there no foundation whatever for the re port that the Delaware and Hudson and the Erie and Wyoming haVe made arrangements with the Wilkes-Barre and Eastern to transport coal to New York. It is understood that the office of gen eral manager has been abolished by the Lake Shore, and Mr. Caldwell, who has held that position since John New- ell's death, will hereafter perform the duties of president exclusively. While no official announcement has been made, It is generally believed that the duties of the general manager will de volve on General Superintendent Can nlff. Manicure sets. Davldow Bros. STOCKS AND BONDS. By the United Press. New York, Nov. 16. Business at the Stock exchange today was on a very small scale. The market was enlivened at one time by a drop in the anthracite coalers, Reading falling to 16, Jersey Central to 91H. Delaware and Hudson to 13, and Lackawanna to 158V4. The final quotation of the latter was 155 bid and 159 asked. The stand taken by the independent coal operators had a de pressing - influence, - Manhattan was again lower. Sugar was less active. There was some selling of the stock on unconfirmed rumors that a reduction in the dividend rate was contemplated. Chicago Gas and General Electric were a shade easier, but dealings were small, In the last hour the market was steadier in tone. Net changes show losses of Haft. American Sugar gained , Manhattan dropped 1. Total sales, ivo.uuu snares. The range of today's prices for the ac tive stocks of the New York stock market are given below.
