Output of Coal Less Than Half
the Normal.
President Mitchell Advises Those Not
Taken Back to Be Patient and Await
Developments of the Next Few
Days Carpenters Also Out In Cold.
Wllkesbarre , Oct 24. The resump
tion of mining throughout the anthracite -
cite region \vaa not as general as was
expected. Unlocked 1'or difficulties
were encountered In the shape of
_ _ water and accumulated gas , and dangerous -
> gorous roofs , which threatened to tail
and entomb the workers , were also
discovered in many of the collieries.
The mine superintendents would take
no chances and the mining of coal
was put off until all parts of the underground -
ground workings can bo made safe.
This will take a few days and In sonic
cases weeks. In sotno of the col-
lleries the machinery connected with
the hoisting of coal worked badly and
it was found necessary to close down
after the miners were ready to go to
work. The number of mines reported
In operation is a little less than two-
thirds of the total number. The out
put of coal was less than half the
normal. The Delaware , Lackawanna
and Western company took the lead In
the production. Their collieries arc
in hotter shape than the mines oper-
' § nted hy the other largo companies.
V * ; Ahout one-half of the mines of the
li j | Delaware and Hudson company were
A\ working and the output of those In
' operation was light. The mines of
the Susquchanna Coal company at
Kanticolze were in operation , but only
the' upper levels could be worked , as
the lower levels held considerable
water. In three days , it is said , the
output of coal will reach the full
. quota. The Lehlgh Valley Coal com-
< fi pany operated about one-half of Its
mines with a full force of men. The
I I ehigh and Wllkesbarre Coal com
' 4 pany mined coal In several of its big
mines , but all of its collieries will not
be In operation before Monday. The
Kingston Coal company started up two
of its collieries. The other two will
start on Monday.
It looks as though the union engl
neers were going to have some diffi
culty getting back their old places.
At nearly every mine where the strik
ing engineers made application for
work they wore told that there were
no vacancies. A large number of car
penters .are al&o out In the cold.
President Mitchell yesterday advised
the men to wait a few days and see
If employment would not bo offered
them. He believes that when general
resumption takes place there will be
few mine employes i.lle. The firemen
are being taken back in larger number
than any of the steam men , because
they take the places of men who are
not so capable. Great preparations
are now under way for the celebration
of Mitchell day in this city on Oct. 29.
The Reading company has advanced
the price of anthracite coal fifty cents
per ton.
