THE KCRANTON TRIBUNE-TUESDAY MORiaN'O. XOVEMBETl 27, 1894.
Industrial and MINE, MILL AND RAILROAD. Two years ago, says the Record, Sen-, ft tor M. B. Williams leased the Thuron colliery property near Pottsvllle after It had been Idle for fifty years. The slope has since been opened and the coal proves to be of excellent quality and thickness. A nivr company has been recently formed and Is known as the Williams Coal company of Potts vllle. The members met on Saturday and elected the following officers: President, Morgan B. Williams; general superintendent, William T. Smyth; di rectors, Morgan B. Williams, W. T. Smyth, W. S. McLean, Ben Williams, John H. Wlllams. All the directors are from Wllkes-Barre with the exception of J. H. Williams, who resides at Scran ton. The colliery will soon be In opera tion. The anthracite sules agents are to meet In New York today and will en deavor to restrict the tonnage for the month of December. "That they will order a restriction Is quite probable," thinks the Philadelphia Inquirer, "but that their directions will be carried out Is not so certain. But whatever ac tion they take there is no certainty that prices can be advanced. Coxe Bros., the Erie, Ontario and Western and Susquehanna and Western, be sides the individual operators, will not restrict unless they have to and some of them cannot be forced to restrict. Moreover, the season of the year Is at hand when the small producer con trols the market. The trade season Is now'over, the demand for coal will be light, and the small operator will fix the. price. In the summer time when the production Is very heavy the small producer Is not an important fuctor. The demand for coal Is then so large that It matters comparatively little what the small producer does, as he Is not importunt enough to make the mar ket.' But In the winter time he ean make the large companies follow him. With this unruly element In exlsfence the action of the sales agents will have les weight than it would have had two or three months ago.' MINOR INDUSTRIAL NOTES: . The Reading Iron company Is pre paring to start another of its large blast furnaces. Sules are now being made In New York at $2.25 for stove coal, so it is said, which Is simply giving the fuel away. Lehigh Valley officials decline to suy what attitude they will assume if de mand is made for a list of the com pany's stockholders. t Railroad accident In October Includ ed 92 collisions, 81 derailments and 9 other accidents, In which 44 personB were killed and 209 injured. Anthracite coal shipments last week were 26.6 per cent, larger than In the corresponding week of 1S93, but for the year to date they are G.l per cent, less than In 1893 Sixty-eight railroads In ' the. aannnn week In November decreased in gross earnings 2.29 per cent. In the first week seventy-nine railroads decreased 4.62 percent. ' ' . ' Fifteen-hundred employes of the New York and Cleveland Gas Coal company in Western Pennsylvania have been granted an Increase In wages from K5 to 62 cents a ton. The anthracite coal output for the completed calendar year promises to amount to about 40,500,000 tons against 43,089,000 tons In M93, and pig iron pro duction to 6,545,000 tons compared with 7,124,000 tons In 1893. ' President Wilbur adheres to his origi nal ueniai or the statement that the Le high Valley had granted the conces sions In coal rates, as announced In dis patches from Wllkes-Burre and New York. He also says that there was, so far as he knew, no truth in the state ment that 5.000 tons of Lehigh Valley were sola in Philadelphia at $2 a ton. It Is also believed by many, says the Philadelphia Record, that the ultimate result of the present difficulty In the coal trade will be to take from the rail roads the sale of the Individual opera tors' product, and to restore the trade to the old order of things that prevailed before the efforts of President McLeod to control the entire anthracite coal situation, ... . 1847 .Rogers BroB' trlplo "plate table spoons, S3 a set.
