THE ENGLISH COAL TRUST.
When it was first reported that the
coal 'operators of England had in contem
plation the formation of one of the
largest trusts erer organized, the state
mentwas regarded as at least an ex
aggeration. The emphatic denials given
' last fall to Mr. Blaine's remarks on Eng
lish trusts were supposed to indicate that
however numerous syndicates might he
in the old country, they were now un
popular and likely to decrease innuuiher.
But London financial journals just te
hand show that such is not the case, and
also prove that the only error made by
3Ir. Blaine was a distinct understating of
the case. The actual details of the pro
posed cool trust show that, if successful
ly formed, it will rival in some respects
the Standard oil monopoly. It has ul
was been alleged that the control over
railroads claimed, by the British govern
ment would prevent an organized combi
nation extending over the whole king
dom; but this idea is also exploded by
the new coal trust. There is nothing in
board of trade regulations to prevent or
even retard the scheme, which can only
be checkmated by a breach of faith or
The proposed capital of the coal trust
is 100,000,000, or about $487,000,000,
and it is stated that the money is ready
to be put down us soon as the details of
the scheme are perfected. Eyery coal
mine in the country is to be bought up,
prices "regulated," and the proceeds of
sales pooled. It is assumed that many
corporations and priyate firms will pre
fer to take stock wholly or in part for
their property, and it will be a compara
tively easy matter to adjust the divi
dends. No detail is ommitted, and
elaborate arrangements are suggested for
sinking funds to compensate for the ex
haustion of supply in given mines and
districts. Nor is the combine to be con
fined to operators only. Miners are to
be encouraged to work for steady but
rather low wages on the understanding
that, although taking no risk, they are to
participate in profits when these are
high enough to make such an arrange
ment practicable. And it is even pro
posed to ask the general public to sup
port the combine on the ground that it
will "steady " trade, keep prices uniform
and insure an ample supply at all times.
But for the names connected rather
startling proposal, no one would give it
a second thought. There is an air of in
solence about the dragging in of an un
suspecting public which gives to the.
whole scheme a Utopian aspect. Yet
some of its promoters arc millionaires
and some of the consenting corporations
are of unquestionable stability. More
over, the leading financial and mining
journals treat the combine as practically
effected, and point how very small the
area immediately concerned really is.
Host of the coal fields of England are in
the north, and there are none farther
south than the midland counties. A
railroad journey right through the entire
district scarcely occupies six hours. The
impression seems to he that there are no
great difficulties to overcome, and that
the trust will be formed in time for tha
winter trade. Globe Democrat.

RECOVERING LOST ARTICLES.
A Suggrlon from the French That Ml&lit
Properly Ho Followed.
"As well look for a needle in a bundle of
hay" as for a small article lost in tho city of
pow ork. Of course every well conducted
railway or carrying company has an office to
which articles found in their vehicles are
storea ror reclamation. Hut there are so
many carrying companies; the articles may
have been left in a cab or in some public
place, and if the owner cannot remember the
exact place, where is he to make inquiry for
it? Would it not bo well to have a special
bureau to which all lost articles could be
sent, just as they have in Paris, for example?
There, if you leave your purse on a counter,
your umbrella in an omnibus, or lose any of
tho numberless small things a lady loves to
cumber herself with, you know where to ap
ply for it.
Editor Medill, of Chicago, lost a 1,000 franc
bill in Paris a few years ago. Tho next day
he clnmlered to tho bureau for lost articles,
in tho third story of the palace of justice, and
recovered it. It had been found in the straw
at tho bottom of a cab ho had used.
The Paris bureau has just lieen reorganized.
Articles found are entered at the central
office, with the name of tho finder. To claim
them, all that b necessary is to properly
identify them, and they are handed over
without charge, a gratuity for the finder
usually beiny left; but this is entirely at the
option of the owner. If after fifteen days
tho article is not reclaimed the finder may
claim it for himself. In case he does not it b
sent to tho magazine for storage three mouths.
and there, if it be clothing or something or a
perishable, nature, it b sold. Otherwise it b
kept for three years. An instance is cited in
La Republi(uo Fraucaise where a Russian
lost 10,000 francs in a carriage.
Eighteen months passed, and happening to
be in Paris again and hearing for tho first
thno of tho bureau for stolen articles, he went
there and made inquiry. Ho was astonbhed
to have it handed over to him, and in hb gen
erosity he left half of tho sura for the honest
coachman who hod placed it there to his
credit, so to speak.
Now, it does seem a little unjust that the
articles found in public vehicles, and left un
claimed, should be sold to swell receipts of
the company owning them; and the knowl
edge that the product of hb find will prob
ably go into tho pockets of hb "boss," is cer
tainly uo incentive to the honesty of an em
ploya Not only b this Parisian institution
self supporting, but it does offer an incentive
to honesty, about one-sixth of the total reve
nues being awarded hi prizes to the police
men, coachmen and others who have aggre
gated the most valuable finds during .the
year. This, of course, hi addition to the gra
tuities. New York Star.
Retinitis of Old Coal Mines.
An ingenious artifice that has lately been
successfully put in practice nt Shenandoah
by tho Heading company, at the Kohinoor
colliery, for refilling the excavations from
which coal has been taken out, is worthy of
mention, since it is desirable that it should bo
imitated elsewhere throughout the coal re
gions where similar conditions prevail. The
method b both simple and effective, and pre
vents the caving in of the earth above, and
the consequent loss of valuable property,
which has not been infrequent in tho mining
towns of the anthracite region. Besides, the
valuable pillars of pure coal, which for many
years it was customary to leave in the mines
to prevent falling in of the roof, can pow be
taken out without fear. A PPaJ uirt con
veyer, consisting of a series of semicircular
chutes, similar to those used in discharging
coal from carts into cellars, and an endless
chain with scrapers attached, automatically
conveys tho fine refuse from tho coal breakers
to an elevation, from whence it is discharged
Ui to a second chute.
As the coal dirt falls on thb, water, pumped
from the mines, mixes with it through a jig
or puddling hole into tho bowels, of hp arth,
from whence the coal has been removed.
Tho coal dirt settles to the bottom of the
breasts and packs closely, and the water seeks
an outlet below, to bo again pumped out to
repeat jtsduty. The cost of thb puddling
tbo refuse matter back juto the mines, about
three to four cents per cubic yard, is very
small compared with the value of tlje pillars
