TIIE fiCHANTON TRIBtlNE-MOXDAT : MORNING. NOVEMBER 10, 1894.
2 Industrial and MIXE, mil axd railroad. "QeorRe Giles, of Carbondale," says' the Anthracite, "Is the Inventor of a culm cleaner and coal washer which promises to be adopted for universal use and at the same time make its father one of the flnanclul powers of the. country, He is in receipt ot letters patent and has placed his models and specifications In the hands of the Hen dricks Manufacturing company, which are now making an estimate on the cost of manufacturing the machine, which will soon be placed on the market. The machine consists of two cylinders, one fitting closely over the rim of the other, forming a water tight Joint, and being constructed in a man ner that permits of their separation easily and quickly. The upper one Is a perfect circle, while the lower one is cone shaped, the small end being down. In the bottom of the tub or upper cylin der is a perforated sheet Iron plate, be neath which Is a screw propeller which forces the refuse out of an opening in the bottom of the catch basin or lower cylinder. On the upper side of the per forated disc are wings or paddles for agitating the coal and keeping the mass lifted from the plate. On one Bide of the tub Is a twoer or sluice way through which the cleaned and prepaVed-coal passes. The revolution of the paddles set on a slight Incline raises the coal to a level with the open ing and from the tub It Is forced Into a screen of shaker, or both. The tub Is fed by a ohute or funnel at the top, regulated by the momentum of the paddles to . prevent blocking or over feeding. Water is also .fed from the itop, and to every two inches of water supplied, three-fourths or one Inch passes out at the bottom of the catch basin with the mud, and the balance Is forced through the sluice with the clean coal. The capacity of a test machine built for Vse at the Fall Brook mine is one ton In seven or nine minutes. Its cylinders are three feet In diameter, the tub being two and a half feet deep. In the machines to be constructed, Mr. Giles says, the capacity will be governed entirely by the demands. "With re quisite power he claims that one of his tubs will clean a ton of coal per minute, but, he added, that two-horse power would 'suffice for the smaller cleaners. The estimated cost of construction of the machines Is $400. The Philadelphia Press' financial edi tor regards as very Important the ac tion which the individual operators took at their New York meeting. "The companies, as Is well known," he say.i, "bring from . the Individual operators some 12,000,000 tons of coal per annum, for 60 per cent, of the tidewater price of coal at New York. This average for stove at the present time is about $2 per ton at the mines, which is all that Is received by the individual operators. The companies put an entirely different price on coal delivered at Buffalo along the line of their roads and in Philadel phia. At this time while the individual operators are getting $2 for stove coal at the mines based on tide prices the companies are getting $2.40 at the mines for coal delivered along the. line,. Rt Buffalo and in Philadelphia. The feel ing of the individual operators is that thev are not eettintr enough money for their coal or that the price of coal at other points is too high. The matter Is an extremely Important one, as it will lower the price of coal at practically all non-competitive points and interfere with an arrangement which is as old as the coal trade." MINOR INDUSTRIAL NOTES: ' The Lehigh Valley shops at Delano are working thirteen hours a day, with enough work ahead to last for months. The earlngs of the Chicago and East ern Illinois, for . October, this year, dropped below those of October, 1893, $129,670. The Lake Shore Is running its shops full time and full-handed, and in some departments sixteen hours- a day. The work Is largely repairs. In railroad circles the revival of the Trans-continental association is thought to be imperative, since the Canadian Pacific has Inaugurated its low rates. The Wilkes-Barre and Eastern Is sur veying a route from Yatesvllle to con nect with the Erie and Wyoming Valley railroad in Pltston. A good deal of coal from this road, as well as from the Delaware and Hudson, will be run over the Wilkes-Barre and Eastern. Six new Babcock boilers, which the Lehigh and Wilkes-Barre are connect ing at No. 4 slope, Audenrled, are now ready for use. The boilers In position nlnee the place was first opened are un able to furnish enough steam to hoist two cars a trip, hence the improve ment J. D. Caryl, superintendent for the Hillside Coal and Iron company, at Forest City, for the past nine years, has resigned his position, to take effect Dec. 1, next. He will be succeeded by Victor Peterson, an employe of the com pany at Scranton for many years. Mr. Caryl will reside in Scranton. STOCKS AXD EOXDS. By the United Press. New York, Nov. 17. The tremendous falling off In earnings of the St. Paul road for the second week of November was the signal for a heavy selling movement in the grangers, which car. ried these stocks down ltt to 2V6 per cent. The earnings for the period showed a decrease of $194,901, or nearly 25 pec cent. The statement frightened weak holders and at the same time bears on other properties took ad vantage of the uneasiness to hammer the general list. The Cammack brokers were active again in Manhattan and their sales forced the stock down to 102, the low est figure for a long time. All the low priced Issues were heavy, the weakness HIGHEST T7rl4LY MCNATM"1' WsWfSSttfllP 1 ii a i 'J m t m . tiu Commercial. of "the ' Southern railroads com mon and preferred stock being quite a feature of the market. The common fell from 12V4 to 10, and the preferred from 38 to 35. Small holders were said to be realizing. After 11 o'clock Jersey Central was bid up to 93, and this checked the decline for a time, but in the final dealings the selling was re newed and the lowest figures of the day were generally made. Other Important losses were: St. Paul, 2 to 60; Big Four, W4 to 38; Burlington and Qulncy, 1 to 74; NorthweBt, 1 to 100; Rock Island, 1 to 62; Louisville and Nash ville, to 57; Missouri Pacific, to 28; Susquehanna and Western pre ferred, 1 to 43; Richmond Terminal, Y, to 15; Richmond Terminal pre ferred, 2 to 19; United States Cordage preferred, 1 to 17, and Western Union, 1 to 87.
