[Trade catalogs from Phoenix Actien-Gesellschaft für Bergbau und Hüttenbetrieb]

Variant company name:
Established 1852 ; "German Cartels: Myths and realities by John M. Kleeburg http://www-plan.fb5.uni-siegen.de/schloesser/resources/Kleeberg_German_Cartels.pdf ; http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ph%C3%B6nix_AG_f%C3%BCr_Bergbau_und_H%C3%BCttenbetrieb  Search this
Company Name:
Phoenix Actien-Gesellschaft für Bergbau und Hüttenbetrieb  Search this
Related companies:
Phoenix AG  Search this
Notes content:
Trade lit, circa 1902, for a German steel mill, rail-rolling mill and coal mining corporation that became part of a steel cartel in the early 20th Century. The company also owned its own coal mines (called a Hüttenzeche). The Phoenix had developed the grooved rail (Rillenschiene), which kept trolley car wheels out of contact with the streets on which they ran (and which would otherwise destroy the street surfaces). The Phoenix sold these grooved rails throughout the world, particularly in the British empire. In 1898, shortly before the publication of this booklet, the Phoenix acquired the Westfälische Union, a major producer of wire, nuts, and bolts. The smaller booklet seems to mark the occasion of Phoenix's joining the steel cartel (against its will.) The larger booklet is the 1902 annual report for the corporation.

One record is in Spanish . Explosives ; gunpowder ; gun powder ; electric blasting apparatus ; "Orange Sporting Powder" ; "Orange Lightning" ; platinum fuses ; blasting powder ; smokeless powder. "In 1872 Laflin & Rand collaborated with friendly rival DuPont to establish the GTA, a trust comprising the nation's top explosives manufacturers that sought to regulate the powder industry with price controls, protected territories and sales quotas. The two companies likewise cooperated in the emerging high explosives, or dynamite, field jointly establishing the Repauno Chemical Company in 1880, the Hercules Powder Company in 1882, and the Eastern Dynamite Company in 1895. Their combined efforts at industry consolidation and control were so successful that by 1900, Laflin & Rand and DuPont together commanded over two-thirds of the entire explosives industry. ...Today Laflin & Rand's legacy continues in the Alliant Powder Company, a former subsidiary of Hercules that specializes in military gunpowder manufacturing."

Application for membership , membership buttons , League publications , legal protection for members, with short examples of cases filed ; advocacy for paved and improved roads . The League of American Bicyclists "was founded as the League of American Wheelmen in 1880. Bicyclists, known then as "wheelmen", were challenged by rutted roads of gravel and dirt and faced antagonism from horsemen, wagon drivers, and pedestrians. In an effort to improve riding conditions so they might better enjoy their newly discovered sport, more than 100,000 cyclists from across the United States joined the League to advocate for paved roads. The success of the League in its first advocacy efforts ultimately led to our national highway system. " Source: http://www.bikeleague.org/about/index.php
