Combination Adopted. BERLIN. December 2.— The Allgemeine Elektricitaets Gesellschaft. with ?2.i50.210 capital in bonds and the Union Elektri citaets Gesellschaft. having ?55,000.000 cap ital, have reached an agreement amount ing to a practical consolidation, the direc tors of each company being elected mem bers of the board of the other, so that the management is identical, though the companies nominally remain separate. This is the result of the crisis in the German electrical industry. After the subsidence of the groat boom in electrical companies, it was found that the manufacturing capacity had far out run the market's demands, hence various efforts had already been made to organ ize the combination after the modei of those in America. The Allgemeine had taken the lead in such efforts, but it found that most of the other companies demanded too high a rating in the pro posed combination. The Allegemeine then. entered into negotiations with the Union, which were conducted so secret ly that the announcement to-day took the market completely by surprise, and its publication caused a rise in electri cals. Allegemeine gaining 6V~ and Union 21-4 points. The Union owns the Thomp scn-Hoi:ston patents for Germany and neighboring countries. The technical manager of the combina tion is an American. Mr. McGee. The Seimens & Halskeimp Company, the Union's greatest rival, capitalized at 513.4i0.0C0. held its annual meeting to-day, and declared a 4 per cent, dividend, against 9 per cent, in 1901. Tne report says of the combination that the Seimens & Halskeimp Company is able to go on alone, but if the situation is cleared up a combination may seem feasible. CAR DERAILED AT CHESTER, Schedule ' Delayed, Bnt Nobody Hurt. Christmas Tree. CHESTER, VA.. December 22.—(Spe cial.)—A work car of the Richmond and Petersburg electric line. .. .was derailed about 11 o'clock this- morning at the crossing of the Farmville and Powhaian railroad, causing some little delay to the regular schedule: The work car was moving a float car of dirt, and while going down grade, for some cause was unable to stop to al low, the derailing switch to be set for the electric line, which caused the front trucks of the car to leave the track. There being a car on each side of the place where the accident occurred, pas sengers were transferred at that point until the trouble was remedied. Trinity Methodist Sunday School will have their annual Christmas tree on Christmas night. Thursday, the 25th. A nice programme has been prepared for this occasion. Mr. Rufus Harrison, of Sunny Side, Cumberland county, is visiting his daugh ter, Mrs. Charles W. Peebles. Miss Cora Lee Cole left Saturday tor F'-ederickPburp. to spend the holidays.
