J,0WER PRICES EXPECTED AFTER THE MIDDLE OF DECEMBER. tVholeale Dealer Rxplaln the Cnuae of the Present High Price When Narl-gall- Close Conl Will All Como Tula Way Tito Effort of the Lnbor Trouble In the Lehigh Valley Iteglon. All f oars of a panio in tho cool market ore Heedless. All fears of a toal fomino oro equally without foundation. Tho price of nuthracito coal, to bo sure, is higher now ban it has bocn, and at wholosalo is highor than it was last year, but circumstances which then did not Influence, tho market bao tendod tbis soason to sond figures up- ward, and to sot tbo timid dealers to think- ing and predicting. What tho influencing circumstances on the coal market to-d- are p Wobld reporter found after a talk with tho most important wholosalo dealers and direct jobbers in tbo city. Primarily tho striko among tho minors in tbo Lehigh Valloy. which began Sept. 10 and which is yet unsettlod, started tho pro-dicti- of a panio in prioes, and thoso who believed that tho .country was dopondont upon that region for its coal supply followed those predictions with tbo declaration that a coal famine was imminont. Tho labor troublo in tbo Lehigh Valloy is as far from adjustment now as it ever was, tho price of coal has slowly advanced, and as n further result of this difficulty a score of firms aro making no attompt to buy or soil. The formor they can not do, for there is not D ton of Lehigh whito ash ooal being mined, find they cannot soil bocanse thero is not a firm in tho city holding any appreciable quan- tity of that grade of coal. Hero lios tho secret of tho twp rumors, both of which, as tho season odvaneos, will bo shown to have boon groundless. Indood, tho reprosontativo of ono of tho largest Louses in Now York, said that within two wcoks tho present flurry in prices would bo over. A prominent wholosalo dealor said: \Thoro is neither fear of a f amino in stock nor a panio in prices. On the contrary, to my mind tho figures on coal will be lowor beforo thoy will bo higher. Of courso, I mean materially higher. Tho prico may advanoo a fraction, but thoro will bo no substantial advanco in tho present market rates. In addition to tho Lehigh Valloy there aro other principal regions where a largo supply of tbo future coal will como from. Theso regions aro now sending coal to tho Lake ports, but within a fow woeks tho Lako trafBo will be closed, and then tho East will offer markets for tbo im- mense supply which all season has been go- ing westward. .This alono will bo sufficient for tho demandsof our market. Then another reason for the present high prices is that thoro has not bocn all summor and fall suff- icient transportation for tho products of tho mines. The railroads could not begin to bandlo tho orders, and tho coal lay in tho sheds. Tho lonior it laid tho stronger grow tho market, autil, at tho last moment, whon the timid onos grew anxious, up wont prices. \ Dut this Is only a flurry,\ he continued. \ Tho roads Uavo attempted to meot the de- mands by giving extra cars and train servico to tho mining companies. By tho middlo of Pocomber I don't boliovo thero will be any uso for thoso extra cars. Then again, when dcalors should havo bocn buyiny, thoy inactive; when jobbers should havo been selling they were piling up coal, and now again at tho last Inlmite all tho orders como in togothor, almost demoralizing tbo market and sending Viriccs booming. Why talk about a coal amine ? There is ono concern alone outsido of the Lehigh that turns out over 130,000 tons a day, and thero aro others that all winter will turn out comparatively a largo quantity. Ko, you need not foar a famine, and if yon' have not purchased your coal yet, bold off for a while and you can buy it cheaper.\ Tho present quotations for coal for house purposes aro as follows: For whito ash free burning, $3.80; for broken, $1.20; for egg, $4.60: for stove, nut and poa, S3. This is for spot coal in Now York at wholosalo. Last year tho prices were i For stove ooal, $1.15; for nut, $3.05. and for ogg, $3.80. Iletall dealers have lon,becn agitating tbo question of an advance in prices. Last night, at a meeting of the Retail Ooal Exchange it was voted to incroaso prices, on and aftor Monday, to 56.60 for whito ash stovo, nut and egg and $(i for furnace, with an advanco on red ash to $7 for stovo and nut and $0.75 for ogg. Prices to grocers and coal-scllo- rs aro : For stovo and nut, 80.25, and to peddlers, for tho same grades, $6.76. A great many members bought coal moro than two months ago, and claim that, owing to the short Btock, their orders could not bo filled. This, as can bo soon, is directly opposite tho reasons given by the shippers, who claim that Inadequate tiansportation caused tho delav. Among tho larger shippers, noticeably those working in tho Lehigh Valloy region, no quotations can bo obtained. \ Wo aro out , of tho markot,\ they say, \ and havo not fol- - t lowed the prices.\ Quotations for future delivery will not be made. ' Despite ths announcod boycott to bo bo. gun against tho Lehigh Valloy Railroad Company, shippers from this region havo no , concern regarding tho rosult Thoy declare thatovon if tho boycott bo started it will i amount to nothing. It is declared that tho , Intention of tho Knights of Labor in this j region is to immediately boycott all corporo- - f tlons favoring Coxo Brothers & Co., Pardoe 4 Co. and Georgo B. Markle & Co. as against tho striking miners in tho Lehigh and Hazlo- - ton regions. Tho Knights intend first to request all busi-i)1- 5on B'onB the region from Pittstou to ottsvillo not to ship any moro goods ovor tho Lehigh Valley road, and thoso who refuse to comply it is said, will in turn bo boycotted. 3. W .will bo the initial step takon by tbo Knights to foroo a settlemont of tho prosent i miners' difficulty, and it is claimed that the i corporations will bo forcod to submit to tho I demands of tho men. Whothor this rosult a will bp accomplished or not is doubtful. At the offices of thoso Lehigh Valloy ship pers thoro is little alarm felt at thU latest movement. Kcpresentatives of tho firm of oxe Brothers i Oo. say that the boycott Will amount to nothing, and claim that it is J ono of the final recourses of striking men everywhere. Should tho boycott bo placed, an.Hho work of tho Lehigh Valloy road with in any way, they will take legal action against the Knights.

Armed With Itcvolvem, They Play tho Uolo of Illghwnyinen In St. Loul. flVem 1A. Si. Xoufa ZltjwMfca. The police In tno north end of the city have broken up a dangerous band of jonng highway- men who havo been operating oxtcnslvely In the neighborhood of the water-tow- during tno past few weeks. Tho remaining members of tho gug woro arrested yesterday afternoon, and tho flvo jouDg Dick Turplns who composed tho band aro now behind the bars, dtsguated with tholr tn falling into tho hands or the police A few days ap a oomplalnt waa made at the Fouith Dlitrlot 8tatlon that a gang of dots armed with revolvers were holding up and robbing other boys near tho watcr-towo- r. One of the victims was located and Intortnod tho police that he had been held np at the Eolnts ot several rovolvcrs and relloTcd of 15 ornta. afternoon Ofllccr 1'ohl waa lnstrnctcd to keep a lookout fur tho young ronbera and arrest them If possible. Ho vliltcd tho scene of their operations and concealed hlinsolf and waited pa- tiently for development. lio had not been thero leng beforo ho wttnesied a alffht which really astonished him. Shortly be- foro 4 o'clock he saw threo boys, ranging In ago from twelvo to sixteen years, walking in the di- rection of the water-towe- r. When within a few hundred feet of the tower flvo lads between four- teen and eighteen years of ago aurroundod tho boys and, drawing revolvers, ordered them to throw up their hands and deliver, coupling the order with a threat that thoy would get hnrtlf they did not obey promptly. Bach of tho three boys woro a watch and chain, and In a very tew minutes they pasted into tho hands of the young robbers. They then searched their victims, about fl.so in nlcklea and dlmeslrom tho three. At that moment Officer 1'ohl dathod out of his plaoe of concealment and ran after the rob- bers. They took to their heels, dropping their re- volvers and plunder In their efforts to get away. Two of tho bora were caught and taken to the Fourth District station, where they, gave their names ns Jack Harvey and George Trtnklo, agod 11 1 teen and sixteen years, respectively. They wero badly frightened and told the police who their companions were. Officer I'onl knew them, how- ever, and started out to arrest the others. Ho ar- retted Charles Kratz, a lad of sixteen yoars, and locked him up wlih his companions. Jack Ualla- - Sierand Ed Gallagher, tho remaining members of band were capturod yesterday after- noon. A warrant was sworn out yesterday charg- ing them wrth robbery in tho first degree. William Kuakc. Arthur Welremaker and Fred Wosham are the boys whom they were robbing when they woro surprised byOfflcor Pohl. They wero on their way to the water-tow- when set upon by tho followers of Clande Duval. HIS OCCUPATION IS GONE. The Glory of the Old-Ti- Wcstorn Stage Driver Ha Departed. JYom IA i)ivr ftptifttfain. j J. a Carson Is in town. The boys call him Kit \when bo Is out in the hills. \Kit\ now wonders about llko a lost man. Ills profession Is gone. Tho building of tho lllo Grande and the Midland across tbo Continental Divide from Lead-vtll- o has forced Mm Into idleness, and not only him, but the brigade of men and army of horses he had at his command. Tho last trip of the old Con- cord stagos ont of Leadvlllo, up by Twin Lakes and over one of the highest passes regularly travelled, has been made. Bromwell'a, the little eating sta- tion at the foot of tho mountain, whore thousands of people havo alncd since 1880 is alread praotl-call- y abandoned, and before another spring tho mountain lions and coyotes can take uptbelr abode In the old corrals without fear of molestation. Mr. Carson atarted his stage lino tn a very modest way bsok la 1980, and for a long time be did not at- tempt to climb the rango over toward Aspen. The passengers bado farewell to all conveyance at tho foot of the hill and tramped the remainder of tho way Into the now flourishing city. As bnslness in- creased, the line was better stockod, until Anally It became, known far and wide jb one of tho beat In tho country. The tlmc-tab- lo was followed strictly, and almost as much precision was used by tho drivers and superintendents in moving tho Con-cor- from place to placcas Is observed In direct- ing a railroad train. Hut all this is a matter of tbo past. Tho horses havo been turned out upon tho rango, tho stock-tende- rs are looking for new Jobs and the drivers ccupy their time in cursing tho advent of tho rail- roads. ' Kit \ Is as much at sea ss any of his men. Not only Is his oocupatlou gone along the old route, but there seems to be absolutely no need anywhere la the country for his lino of coaches. Ills eyes are keen, however, and If an opening occurs, the pub- lic may expect to be on hand ready to embrace it. Muster noli of tho Wnr. (JYom a Wmltiniton . Cockroll, the tall Senator from Missouri, has gono Into business as the preserver of the war muster rolls. In swooping around tho War Department the other day he came upon the room where are stored the muster rolls ot all tho regiments and battalions in our civil war, andwas astounded to find that they were so badly worn out that they were dropping to pieces. No less than six rolls on an average of evrry Union company la tho war are stored here not far, I suppose, from a million rolls In all. They are In constant requisition bv Gen. D lack's clerks who aro searching for facts on which to docldo a pension olalm, and they havo been so con- stantly handled that they are dropping apart where they have been folded, and are in part al- ready undecipherable. They aro in a worse con- dition than tho original rolls of the Involution, and threaten to disappear altogether. In this extremity Senator Cocxrcll has suggested that a tough and transparent tissue paper bo pasted over all the rolls for tho purpqsoot protecting them without obscuring the text. Geo. Drum has ap- proved the measure, and the great work has al- ready been begun. It will take months to accom- plish It, and perhaps years, for the clerks of the War Department are notoriously tho slowest and least efficient of any In the servico. A Spook at the Door. (?Vm (A SavannaA Ai.. At Camden, S. C. , John S. Moroney has a very unpleasant visitor at his house, in the shape of a spirit. For about a week the brass-kook- cr on his front door has been having a \gala week \ of Us own. It has been seen to raise up and come down a loud rap, and Its behavior oahnot be ex-- 1 icd. The knocker Is between T5 and 100 years old. It came oil the old Salmond houso, which tucd to be in tho lower part of town, bat was bought and removed by Mr. Meroney. The knocker was afterwards put on his front door. It Is of thin brass and is screwed on a thick piece of board, while the bolts with concealed heads go through the psuel of the door to hold It in place. There Is no other connection between the knocker and anything at all. Tbo knocking la seen and beard with the door In any position. While neither Mr. Meroney nor his wife believe In spirits nor seem to be superstitions, the affair worries them, to say tho least. Crowds of curious people are around the door day and night, and many of them testify to the strange movements of the knocker. Terrible Fight with a Hear. lVom a. liiubmrg ItoparcA. A terrible Sght with a bear Is reported from Nicholas County, W. Vs. Nicholas Fleming, a veteran hunter, who has nine bearskins as trophies of this winter's sport, while following a trad came upon a she bear, weighing eso pounds. The animal was upon him In an Instant, and felling him to the ground with Its paw, the infuriated beast began savagely biting his leg and tearing- - off his clothes. Fleming attempted to turn over, when the bear, catching him between the shoulders, tore his body from his neck to bis hips most horribly, several gashes half an Inch deep being found' the entire length. Having stripped off all his clothing, the animal was about to devour him when the hun- ter's doiis attracted her attention. iHemlng grasped his gun and shot the animal dead. He was unable to movo and had to be carried home. Valuable Pointer Htolen.

Her object was to socuro the issuanco of a warrant for tho arrest of tho man Oomstock, who assaulted tho boy in City Ilall Park on Thursday afternoon. Tho woman was greatly disappointed when informed that tho Polloo Justices have adopted a rulo not to issuo warrants on Sat- urday except in extromo casus ; that Justico O'Kuilly had disposed of his grist at tho Tombs and loft the building, and that sho would havo to wait until Monday to mako hor complaint.
