The Erie branch of R. G. Dun & Co.'s
Mercantile Agency was established in 1872,
and has been kept up in the city ever since.
Among the managers of the Erie office have
been Messrs. Goalding, Love, Price and New-
begin. The latter, after a long service, went
to New York in October, 1894, and was im-
mediately succeeded b)' R. R. Hopkins, the
present manager. W. J. Young has been
attorney for the agency since June, 1889.

Bradstreet's agency has never had a branch
in Erie, but has long been represented here in
connection with the Buffalo district. R. L.
Perkins, its representative for many years,
has been succeeded by Walter Reitzell.


The imports and exports by lake are given
in detail in a preceding chapter. More than
ninety per cent, of the lumber and grain
and all of the iron ore received at Erie
come by lake. The grain goes east by
the Philadelphia and Erie R. R., which
also carries the bulk of the lumber that is
shipped to the interior. The latter road
brings in anthracite coal from the Luzerne,
Schuylkill and Shamokin regions, while the
principal amount of bitum.inous coal comes
over the Erie and Pittsburg R. R. from the
southern counties. The iron ore goes east
and south over both roads, though by far the



largest amount is used in the Shenango valley
and at Pittsburg and vicinity. As nearly as
can be ascertained, the following figures
show the coal trade for 1894 :

By Philadelphia & Erie R. R.. . 580,2(>4 35 681 615.945

By Erie and Pittsburg 317,000 317,000
