SLINK SPENCER 410 Sprues StreaL ANTHRACITE TRADE'S PRESENT CONDITION Operators at the Mercy of Unreliable Sales Agents. OUTLOOK IS NOT REASSURING Coal Operators Association Charges That the Industry is Grossly Mis managed"ltailronds on Unstable Foundations Carrying Undemandcd Coal in Order to llolstcr Vp Their Seeming Prosperityltcaction Will Come. The coal trade Is at present In a discouraging state so far as the opera tors are concerned. If the opinions of the producers gf for anything prk-es In the immediate future will hardly ap proach even the liw average of Octo ber. It is claimed that early last month the sales agents blundered and overestimated the November and De cember demand with the result that many of the coal carrying roads glut ted the market. The Anthracite Coal Operators' as sociation in its report of Dec. 1 claims there has been gross mismanagement. In the early part of November, says the report, the iUes agents, with that acumen for which they are noted, fore saw a great expansion In the market for coal, and concluded that it would absorb 4,5tiu,000 tons. The mines begun working on that basis and In a few days the railroads had so much coal on hand that there was no place to put it. Sales were slow and prices on the de cline, while stocks were increasing. Then some of the roads with a keener sense of equity and honor than the others, ordered their collieries on shorter time so as to reduce the out put and maintain a fair price, others, however, have been forcing their pro duct on the market, and there is little reason to hope that November and De cember prices will reach even the low average received in October. If the consumption had been estimat ed at 3.500,000 tuns it would even th-n have exceeded the actual demand. To have estimated It at one million tons In excess of this, in the face of a heavy increase in both tidewater and line docks during October, shows the utter Incapacity of the sales ngents, while the present condition of the trade bears most damaging witness to the puerility of their efforts to upset the immutable law of supply and demand. SALES AGENT THE AUTOCRAT. No other great industry in these United States is so grossly misman aged. The nales agents wish for large tonnage, and It is manifestly more to their profit, and to the profit of all the commission houses depending upon them, to handle many tons, even at a low price, than a smaller number of tons at a higher price. Their commis sion is the same In either case. The operator, on the other hand, and all hidders of securities in coal-carrying railroads, are more vitally Interested, In receiving a higher price for their output, without bo much regard to the number of tons. Each acre of coal land contains a fixed amount of coal, and Its value depends entirely upon the price which the sales agent chooses to S'll it for. If he sells for a high price and exhausts it slowly, then the land has a greater value as an invest ment; but when, In order to secure a large tonnage and the consequent com missions he sacrifices the coal for a low figure, he Is disregarding every right of the security holder in such property, by depreciating its value und destroy ing the foundation of the securities. While the sales agents themselves In manv cases may not secure a direct profit in commissions from a larger tonnage, it would oe interesting, aim undoubtedly very instructive to the stockholders of some ot tne larger roads, if the relationship between tne commission houses which handle the coal, and the railroads was looked into. If this power was used to further the general welfare of the regions as it should be, great good might be ac complished, but instead, It Is like the selfish, petty warfare of the -feudal lord, each trying to support his own insecure throne at the expense of the people and his neighbors. Some of the railroads stand on an unstable foundation, and It Is to be expected that where they are In such absolute control they shall try to ex tort sufficient revenue to make good heavy deficits In other accounts. The assertion that some of the coal-carry-Ingrallroadsstandon an unstable foun dation Is pertinent, since the methods now being employed to bolster them Into a state of seeming prosperity will, before long, react disastrously on all of the Interests Involved. The proof of this may easily be found by ascer taining the amount of unmlned coal owned or controlled by raeh of the roads. In the figures collected with great care by William Griffiths, it Is Bimtvn that only three of the eleven coal-tarrying railroads have sufficient coal lands remaining xo insure mem a tonnage for over one hundred years. The other eight roads will exhaust their resources In periods varying from nine to sixty-three years. WHERE'S THE SINKING FUND? Without Implying doubt as to the ac curacy of these figures, there are cer tain conditions which materially re duce the time during which most of the rnilroads will be ame to mine anu transport coal at a profit. The opening of new mines will Involve a hpavy de lay of money, and with increasing depth the coal will cost more. Every Item of expense will become greater, and t. meet the rapidly increasing out put of the cheaper bituminous coal, anthracite will likely have to be sold for less money, or If not that, then as a hleh-Driced fuel for a limited num ber of purposes. To meet this future how many of the rauroaas nave peen maintaining a sinking fund to re-lm burse their capital account when this source of great revenue Is exhausted? There Is, in the present conduct of the coal trade, such an entire absence of business foresight and, it may also be said, of commercial Integrity, that It Is almost a matter of surprise that the past months of 1836 have shown an improvement over the reckless course followed In 1SH5. For such a change the sales-agents are congrat ulating themselves. By means of an erudite arithmetical calculation they prove to their own satisfaction that they have not sent to market more than their due proportion of coal, and add ing up their figures proves, further, that there is no excess over the amount which it was estimated the market would require. The application of the time-honored rule of Hist principles in arithmetic shows, however, that as a matter of fact they have largely exceeded the needs of the market; that stocks have Increased at tidewater, and are unusu ally heavy along the lines, and that they have, through this continued ex cessive production, been forced to keep up that transparent game of "bunco ing" the public with a fixed "circular" price, while the actual sales are made from forty to fifty-five cents and more below it. It has been stated in all earnestness that the sales-asents could not main tain circular prices prices because of legal obstacles. The Incorrectness of such reasoning I seasily shown by ref erence to any of the great industries. They are not combinations in any sense of the word, but are following the underlying principle of all success ful business In agreeing that if the market Is overloaded the price will de cline to a point where operations cease to be profitable, and to prevent such a condition they gauge their output to the needs of the consumer. Thef is no Industry which could more readily be adjusted than' the an thracite mining trade. Its proper and legitimate conduct would be of vast benefit to the Operator, carrying-roads and consumer, but until some course is followed such as has already been suggested by this association, of hav ing a commissioner appointed who shall direct the affairs of the trade, there will be the same ruinous destruction of valuable Interests that is going for ward now. No sure remedy has ever been found that will cure a breach of faith. If it had, the anthracite inter ests could well pay a fabulous sum for the possession of the formula, and it would no doubt be prescribed in al lopathic doses. GRAIN DEALERS FAIL. Sheriff Closes Duggua & Kennedy of West Lackawanna Avenue. Two executions were yesterday Issued against William H. Duggan and Philip Kennedy, doing a wholesale grain business on West Lackawanna avenue, under the firm name of Duggan & Kennedy.
