The Cause of the Coke Strikes.
Of course the riotous proceedings of
the coke strikers in the western part
of this State had to be checkad. Such
violence could not be tolerated, and
called for the exertion of lawful
authority to suppress it. The dissatis-
fied workmen had a right to protest
against inadequate wages, but they
went beyond the limit of their right
when they got to disturbing the peace
and destroying life and property.
Then their suppression became impera-
tive, it being necessary for the preser-
vation of law and order.
Very little sympathy is expressed in
their behalf, for the reason that they
are regarded as a set of ignorant and
brutalized foreign workmen, who have
intruded themselves, at low wages, in
competition with native labor, which
in consequence is injured in the rate
of wages it should receive. But those
who are acquainted with the situation
of this foreign labor element in the
coke regions, and the circumstances
connected with their employment, are
not disposed to be so barsh in their
judgement. The foreign coke-burners
came into the region upon the promise
of receiving living wages. ‘They
came because they were brought, but
from the very beginning of their em-
ployment the wages promised them
were subjected to repeated reductions
until they have been reduced to the
verge of starvation, even when coun-
stantly employed. The company store
isthe medium through which their
low wages are paid, and they are
kept in debt to the store, as the pay al-
lowed them is not sufficient to cover
the cost of even their meager necessa-
ries. They cannot get away as they
have not the means for their removal,
and are virtually put in the condition
of slaves to the coke operators.
Now when a lot of ignorant foreign-
ers find themselves entrapped in this
way, and feeling that a wrong is being
done them, and are incapable of vindi-
cating themselves except by such
violent measures as their want of intel-
ligence naturally leads them too, noth-
ing else could be expected than that
disturbances should ensue. It would
be wonderful, under such circum-
stances, if breaches of the peace, des-
struction of property, and even the tak-
ing of life,’should not occur.
But the fault is primarily with those
who for the sake of their own profit
have introduced this class of workmen,
and treat them in a way that will
wring the utmost dollar out of their
service. It is to increase the gains of
the employer that their wages are re-
duced, and to double his profits the lit
tle pay that is allowed them must be
taken from the company store. That
the coke operators cannot afford to
pay better wages is refuted by the fact
that most of them have grown to be
millionaires in a few years from the
profits of their busivess. These are
the men, all of them beneficiaries of
the McKinley protective system, who
are really responsible for the frequent
disturbances in the coke region.
No Occasion for More Speeches.
Democratic members of the Senate
have scarcely a reason for making
speeches on the tariff bill that is now
before that body: It having been
sufficiently debated, further talk on the
subject would be but a waste of time,
which the Republican Senators may
be expected to prolong to the extent of
their tether, as they have a partisan
motive for doing so. Buncombe can
be the only reason for harangues on
the bill from the Democratic side, and
buncombe is not an excusable motive
for delaying a measure upon which
the business of the country is waiting
and the reputation and fortune: ot the
Democratic party depend. :
The people want to have this matter
settled as soon as possible. Their
patience has been exhausted long ago
by the lingering process which has
kept the result in a state of uncertain-
ty. There is not a business interest
that is not being injured by the sus-
pense. The purpose of the Democrat-
ic party in regard to the tariff has
been clearly defined and is well under
stood. Its pledge to retorm the tariff
is explicit. The injunction of the peo-
ple to that effect at the last general
election was emphatic and pre-emptory.
Therefore it is action and not talk that
is required}lof Democratic Senators,
and, so far as the rules of the Senate
will permit, the wind of the Republi-
cans should be cut short on this ques-
tion. Unfortunately, for the good of
the country, and the credit of that
body, obstructive speech making has.
too much latitude in the upper house
of Congress.
Bright Prospects for Silver.
Recent indications in Congress in re-
gard to silver foreshadow the policy
which this government will eventually
adopt in its treatment of that metal as
a monetary medium. Ttis true thay
the recent movements to restore the
status of Silver, by relieving it from the
ban under which the gold interest has
placed it, were not successful, but they
failed not from the lack of supporters
in Congress, but because the great
strength it developed was not quite
strong enough to overcome the execu-
tive objection that was interposed in
the case of the Seigniorage bill.
In the position in which the Presi:
dent found himself on the Silver ques-
tion, he was perfectly justifiable in
vetoing that bill. It was due to con-
gistency that Lie should veto it, consid-
ering the position he has all along
maintained on that question ; but there
was nothing in his action that should
confirm the impression that he is un-
alterably opposed to the principle and
practice of bimetallism. There is
greater reason to believe that when
the situation shall have changed, as to
some particulars affecting the question,
he will favor the co-ordinate use of
gold and silver as monetary metals.
But the feature that most encourag-
ingly shows itself in what has recently
been done in Congress in behalf of sil-
ver coinage is the array of its support:
ers, embracing much the larger por-
tion of the membership of Congress,
and representing the sentiment of much
the larger part of the country. The
constituency thus represented are not
the limited few engaged in money
changing and kindred operations ;
they do not look to the process of
banking and speculation for their pros-
perity, but are engaged in those various
occupations of society that are promoted
by the liberal supply of the circulating
medium which can be obtained only
by combining the equal use of the two
metals for monetary purposes. The
great showing which bimetallism has
made 1n Congress presages the restora.
tion of silver to the place it ehould oc-
cupy in the money system of the coun.
try, from which it has been removed
for the benefit of the few who find
their profit in the scarcity of money.
Unneeded Legislation.
There is surely no occasion for more
legislation to enlarge the pension roils,
for ingenuity bas already been ex-
hausted in deriving methods to enable
almost any and every sort of claimant
to be included in the list of pensioners.
At all events there is no reason why
such legislation should come from
a Democratic source, and therefore
a new pension law presented by a
Democratic Congressman from Peon-
sylvania, last week, is not a measure
that is worthy of approval.
This bill proposes to give pensions
to those who did not appear regularly
upon the muster rolls during the war,
but can prove that they rendered some
kind of alleged military service. This
would include militia men who may
have volunteered in an emergency, but
were not called to the front, nor were
even put on a march.
Such a bill as this, if seriously of-
fered, may serve a useful purpose in
showing to what an outrageous extent
pension legislation can be carried, and
thereby excite public indignation
against a co.tinuance of such robbery
of the public treasury. It can be urg-
ed upon no cther principle than that
as the pension rolls contain thousands
of unworthy names they might as well
be enlarged by thousands of others who
have no reasonable claim to such
bounty. :
Tt there is occasion for more pension
legislation it should be in the direction
of decreasing and not increasing the
number of pensioners. Its object
should be to eliminate the unworthy;
to cut oft those whose service has not
earned such consideration from the
government, or who not need it. The
purpose of Democratic legislation on
this subject should be rather to increase
the pensions of veterans who have
worthily earned their country’s grati-
tude, but who must be limited to a few
dollars a month on account of the great
multitude of unworthy claimants
among whom the peusion fund has to
be shared.
——After eighteen years of service
to the Democracy of his county
and State A. H. Corrrota Jr.
editor and proprietor of the Somer-
set Democrat, has retired from the ard-
uous duties of newspaper work. Like
all others, he has not been infallible,
but the Democrat, under his guidance,
was certainly an able and thoroughly
Democratic paper. Wedo not know
to what line ot work Mr. CorrroTH in-
tends giving his future attention, but
whatever it may be we bespeak ior
him that meed of success of which he
is 80 meritorious.
—— Subscribe for the WATCHMAN,
They Should Show Their Hands.
If it is the purpose of Senators HiLw,
Brice, GorMaN, MoreaN and other
Democrats in the Senate, to defeat the
ariff bill by dilatory treachery, it
would be more to their credit if they
should openly join with the Republi-
cans and bring it to a speedy failure.
They would then appear in their true
colors, and their party would know
how to regard them. Their present
conduct indicates hostility to the bill,
but it is ot a character that is calcula-
ted to deceive. They embarrass a
Democratic measure, while not openly
acting with its enemies.
It is about time that the party
should let these Senators know what it
thinks of their course on this question,
and demand that they should main-
tain their fidelity to their party, or go
over openly to the enemies of tariff re-
form. A deserter who goes boldly
over to the enemy is less dangerous
and more honorable than a traitor who
lingers in the ranks which he intends
to betray.
——Major C. G. McMILLES has been
re-elected mayor of Dayton, Ohio, by a
majority ot 896. This is about the first
good news we have heard since the
Spring elections and Bellefonte should
be proud of having once been the home
of a man, who, right in the face of the
awful calmity howl and within scarcely
more than a stone’s throw from McKiIN-
LEY’S home, turned over a Republican
city and became its Democratic mayor.
This is hopeful and a pleasing balm for
the Grow sore we got in February.
The Army Falters.
The Storm King of the Mountains Compels the
Commonweal to Halt.
Un~ioNtowN, Pa, April 10.—The
weather has at last succeeded in driv-
ing the army of the commonweal to
shelter, and has held up the march for
one day. Thus far the trip has been
made on schedule time, but Wednes-
day morning, when the army departs
from this place and starts up through
the mountains, it will be one day be-
hind time. Monday, that opened eo
brightly and augured so auspicicusly,
was a sad disappointment. The
clouds that slowly gathered from noon
on were in sufficient force to burst
torth in a wind and rain storm at night
that has continued with severity ever
Camp Abraham Lincoln, pitched at
Monntain View Park, two miles near-
er the Alleghenies than this city, suf
fered many discomforts. The wind
roared through the high oaks with
devastating force, and the illy clad
men stood for a time about their huge
campfires in an endeavor to warm
themselves. It was useless. As the
evening advanced the wind increased
in velocity, until the men sought the
long low frame building in which they
were to spend the night, and they were
soon lulled into a troubled sleep by the
roaring of the wind among the trees
and the rocking of the structure. Sev-
eral times during the night it was
feared the building would be blown
away, and while several buildings io
the city were unroofed, the lowly shel-
ter provided for the weary men remain-
ed uninjured.
This morning there was difficulty in
preparing breakfast. The wind had
abated butslightly and the embers of
the fire were scattered broadcast. It
was with great difficalty the great iron
kettle was properly secured over the
fire and coffee boiled. This, with
oysters and lunch crackers, constituted
the breakfast menu.
General Coxey was exceedingly anx-
ious to push along on his march, butthe
state of the weather is such that he
bas deemed it advisable to remain in
this city to-night and hopes that the
storm by Wednesday will have abated
sufficiently to enable the army to con.
tinue ite march. This moraing a
mass meeting was held at Mountain
View park at 10 o'clock, at which
General Coxy and Marshal Browne
addressed a large audience. Off in the
distance could be seen the mountains,
their crests covered with snow. The
indications for a pleasing march to.
morrow are far from encouraging. _
The commonweal will hereafter ex-
perience no difficulty at toll gates
along the national pike. General
Coxey bas in his possession a written
order from John Brownfield, superin-
tendent of the national pikes in Fay-
ette county, passing the army free
At 10 o'clock the order for a meet-
ing at Mountain View park was re-
scinded. The speakers were on the
ground, but the storm was too severe.
To-night in the opera house a meeting
will be held. A further change in the
itineracy has been made. The de-
parture from this city will not be be-
fore noon on Wednesday, and there
will be no stop at Private Dalzell’s
farm, as it is two miles from the
route. The object will be to make up
time as rapidly as possible to Camber-
land. Itis the expectation to reach
there Saturday night.

Ayer & Son, of Philadelphia, is unques-

they are not entitled to the credit of se-
curing for their patrons better service

The Coke Strike.
Everything Was Peaceful Yesterday as Far as
CONNELLSVILLE, Pa., April 11.—All
is reported quiet along the Yough-
expected to continue longer than the
gevere BDOW storm now prevailing,
The plants along the Mount Pleasant
branch are in full operation. The
plants south of this place are in partial
operation only.
It is given out by President Barrett's
friends that heis actively engaged in
reorganizing the strikers, and that
when he has everything in readiness
he will make an attack on all of the
plants in the region at the same time.
This idea, they claim, will prevent the
sheriffs from doing effective work for
the protection of the men. Another of
Barrett's plans is to meet the working
men while on their way to work be-
fore they get on the company’s proper:
ty and compel them to go home.
Condition of Winter Wheat.
W asHINGTON, April 10.—The condi-
tion of winter wheat on the first day of
April as reported by the statistician of
agriculture averages 86.7 per cent. for
the entire country. Last year the
average was 77.4. The weather from
seeding time uutil the recent cold wave
swept over the country has been geun-
erally favorable to the growth of the
. The returns in regard to the effects
upon wheat resulting from the recent
cold spell are not so satisfactory nor so
conclusive as is desirable. The injury
to the crop is undoubtedly considerable,
if not great, but the comments of cor-
respondents accompanying the report
would seem to indicate that the full
text of the damage was not determin-
able at the date of transmission,
A New Seigniorage Bill.
W asuiNeToN, April 10.—The coin-
age and bond bill recently introduced
by Representative Meyer, democrat, of
Louisiana, is bringing out much dis-
cussion between the silver and anti
gilver element of the house. Mr.
Meyer was opposed to Mr. Bland
throughout the seigniorage bill's strug-
gle and voted against it.
Mr. Meyer's bill follows closely the
president's suggestion in the seignior-
age clause. It provides for the coin-
age of the seigniorage and gives the
secretary of the treasury power to issue
3 per cent. bonds of small denomina-
tion, in substitution for the old bonds.
Afraid of Walking.
UxioNTOWN, Pa., April 11.—Coxey’s
discomfitures were added to to-day but
in the face of a serious snow storm and
very rough weather, the column de-
parted at noon for a day’s march into
the mountains, It is rumored among
the men this morning that there will be
a number of desertions. The fear of
the mountain trip, and its vigor is the
cause of these desertions. Most of the
deserters stated that they would leave
after the command moved to the foot
of the mountains.
The Peach Trees Suffer.
WiLmiNGToN, Del., April 11.—From
reports received the storm of yesterday
and to-day seems to have killed the
few peach trees that escaped the cold
snap of a couple of weeks ago. George
H. Hall, of Milford, who owns an
orchard of 6,500 trees said to-day:
“The peach crop was already dead, but
this storm will kill the few remaining
trees uninjured.” W. W. Rollins, of
Georgetown to-day offered to sell an
orchard of 600 trees for $5.

Cured by Dr. Salm After Having Suffered for
Years With Stomach, Bladder and Kidney
I have been suffering with very severe sto-
mach, bladder and kidney trouble, and un ac-
count of that felt all broke up. Couldn’t fol-
low my daily labors on account cf great pains,
weakness and headache ; but now, after a
course of treatment with Dr. Salm, can once
more attend to my daily labors with pleasure
and consider myself hale and hearty again,

Ailed for Twelve Years and Though Seven Dif
ferent Physicians Failed, Dr. Salm Cured Me.
For more than twelve years I suffered tors
tures with liver, stomach and kidney trouble:
Occasionally I had to go 10 ved lor a week at a
time and was unable to work for years; but
now, after only a few months’ treatment with
Dr. Salm, I feel so well, a~ I never did before.
I used piles of patent medicines and had sev-
en difterent ) hysicians but gradually grew
worse. Howev: r, since I put myself under
Dr. Salm’s treatment I improved gradually
and now can do as good aday’s work as any one.
I can certainly recommend the doctor to

Deafness Cured by Dr. Salim after a Great

For quite a time I have been almost totally

which seemed dead, and the right one got

most desperate on account of not being able to
hear wnat went on around me; felt always
tired and lost all energy. Now I am quitea

this thanks to Dr. Sal's skillful treatinent. I
have been tu three other doctors. No one can

Closure of the Tearduct Cured by Dr. Salm.
I have had a good deal of trouble with my
eyes tor the last 5 years. Tears running over

same, and now I can keep my handkerchief

Catarrhand Ear Trouble Cured by Dr. Salm.
For more than ten years I have had a bad
ease of eatarrh. My ears gradually became
affected to such a degree that the hearing in
one year was almost totally gone and bad in
the other one. I became very much alarmed,
so I went to Dr. Salm for treatment and im-
provement was rapid from the beginning.
It’s now very seldom that 1 take a cold and it
must be a very faint sound that [ cannot hear
witn either ear. I feel better all around and
confess myself satisfied with the treatment.

For Eighteen Years Totally Blind—Dr. Salm
Through His Wonderful Skill Gave me Sight.
For more than eighteen years 1 have been
totally blind in my right eye, caused bya
piece of wood striking the same. I was told I
could never be made to see again out ot the
eye, but Dr. Salm told me that the injury had
produced eataract and that he wou d guarantee
to make me see. [gave him my case, and
bless my stars that I did so, for today, al-
though it is wonderful to relate, I can see once
more out of the heretofore blind eye after
more than 18 years darkness. Friends and
those who know me will bear witness to the
abov= and think there is no discount on Dr
Salm’s wonderful skill, 1
‘L yrone, Pa. Jou MORNINGRED,
After Having Tried Five Different Dr's and a
Wagon Load of Different Medicines. Grew
Worse and Worse and was at Last Cured by
Dr. Salm.
For more than eight years I was troubled
with Dyspepsia and intestinal indigestion. I
suftered untold agonies only ate enough to
keep me alive, and toward the last 1 must
have taken a wagon load of different Patent
Medicines and tried five of our different Dr's
in the County but grew worse and worse. None
of them made the correct diagnosis, until I
went to Dr. Saim at Tyrone. He told me at
once what ailed me, and he was correct for to-
day I feel a new woman.

Grew Worse and Worse for Seven Years of a
Bad Case of Catarrh, But Dr. Salm Cured
Him After the Very Best Physicians in the
County Had Failed.
For more than seven years I have had a bad
case of Catarrh which affected my head,
Throat and Chest very much and on a short
space o' time lost over twenty pounds in
weight, became weaker daily and felt stupid
and good for nothing. Was treated by sever-
al of our best Dr's and took a gcod deal of
patent medicines, but gradnally grew worse
and worge. ‘Then I heard of Dr. salm’s won-
derful cures. I gave him 4 trial ana from the
very first month I began to steadily ‘improye.
and the result to-day is that I have ga‘ned
what weight 1 had lost heretofore and feel
like enjoying life once more.
