Tlm Coal Tronbloi.
Tho coal miners' sttlko is practically
at nu end. Everywhere tlio miners nro
Roliig to work j either accepting prices
and conditions offered by tho operators,
or leaving thoso to bo settled by local
arbitration. In struggles of this kind
strikes can novcr bo successful against
combined capital, and this will always
bo so for thoslmplo reason that capital
does not cat but men must. Tho capital
ists only lose tho Interest on their In
vestment tho capital Itself does not
diminish aud In tho end this Is gener
ally mado up by advanced prices and
prompt sales occasioned by scarcity.
IHit men dependent upon labor must
uso their capital constantly, must eat,
and clolho thcmselvoj, and pay rents
and taxes. When their capital Is not
In full operation their means of subsis

against a strong combination of capital,
in tlio recent contest tho miners exhib

That want will always bn In their way

Tho miners gave tho operators great
ndvantago by demanding control over
tho works that was unroasonablo and
Insufferable. That demand was con
demned by public sentiment as being
Inimical to success in business, nnd
through this thoy lost much of public
sympathy. No business can bo success
fully carried on If thoso who own and
conduct It can not employ and discharge
whom thoy please. To tako from tho
employers tho power to discriminate In
favor of Industry and skill, and ngatnst
laziness, carelessness and Incompetency
will destroy any business. Merit should
and must always havo tho power to
mako Its valuo felt and receive its full
leward. Judgo Elwei.Ii'h decision on
theso points will bo of moro benefit to
tho'rnlncrs in future, if received in tho

On tlio general subject thero should

off coal from market whenever it suits
their whims or interests to do so. Com

and for whoever demands their services.
Wo know wholo regions of coal that is
kept out of market beeausa tho otllccrs
of n railroad company happen to bo per
sonally Interested in rival fields. Tho
public should tako this matter In hand
nnd seo to It In tho election of legisla

Wo beliovo that intelligent and un
selfish legislation could reach tho wholo
subject embraced in tho recent disas
trous strike, and forever prevent Its re
currence, or tho causes for It. But It
will rcquiro statesmen, nnd not dema
gogues, to accomplish this desirable end.
Tho question should bo met nt n time
when thero is no special excitement
nbout it and when men's passions ato
no(, aroused or lmmcdlato Interests
It was an adroit movo In tho opera
tors lo got up an is3uo between tho Min
ers and tho Laborers. If that quarrel
can bo kept up tho operators can whis
tle at all opposition to their viows here
after. Tho Idea has been practiced upon
in much moro Important matters long
ago. When tho British government fear-
ed united Ireland it granted special favors
ton class of them, not for friendship's
sake or other benevolent motive, but to
nrouso thojealousy of tho other classes.
Tho result was a perpetual fucd between
tho parties, in which all tho powers of
both woro taxed to watch and counter'
act each other. Of courso divided Ire
laud wasted its strcngtli In internal dls
scntion and left tho British government
frco to look after other concerns. If a
jtalousy and rivalry can bo established
between tho miners nnd tho laborers
who assist them each will soon havo
enough to do to watch tho oilier, and
whllo thoy nro contending with each
other tlio operators can havo everything
their own way. Let tho worklngmon
bewaro of this trap and keep their fin
gors out of it, lest both Interests suffer
Tho miners now having yielded tho
control of tho employment nnd dls
chargo of workmen, as welt as tho Idea
of preventing men from working who
desire to do so, and having gouo to
work In good faith, tho operators can
best effect permanent peaco nnd good
will, nnd most thoroughly destroy tho
Influence of tho nctivo leaders of tho
strlko, by paying liberal wages to tho
men nnd dealing generously with them
In nil things. A want ofgoneroslty
now on their part would bo littloelso
than criminal and Svould deservo tho
strongest public reprehension. It is no
tlmo now to wreak petty Bpitoor togivo
placo to revengeful ideas. Generosity
will mako tho operators strong with tho
miners and tho public, whllo an oppos
ite courso will only catnll weakness
nnd trouble Let wlso councils prevail.

holding a meeting nt Ilydo I'arke, a

After a careful pcrsual of tho testi

of its weakness, and its iiiilmm, ns only

Bo fnras my observation lias extended,
I ntu satisfied that tho groat present evil
suffered by the South Is, jlus proscription
of its lest citizens, and the consequent result
of such a course of legislation; nnd that
tho most tranquillizing and harmoniz
ing measure which Congress could cnaet
would be ono removing all political and
civil disabilities from those engaged In
tho latu war.
During my residenco hero my feelings
have been not a llttlo chafed at witness
ing mm filling offices vital to the interests of
the community totally unqualified for the
obligations they have assumal.
J have now been in Ashcvillc nearly sixteen
months, and am liappy to state that J have
neither seen or heard of, neither have I had
any. reason to suppose the existence htrc(Khat

of any such organization as that referred to
and affirmed in the nforcsaid'tcslimony.
1 have never felt greater security, both of
person andpropcrly, in any community than
in this. .
1 am satisfied that any Ill-treatment
of n Northern man bceausoof thoscction
irom which ho eamo or his peculiar po
lities would at ouco bo frowned doien by
this whole community ; and as for violence,
that is out of the question.
Both my family nnd myself havo re

as mauy friends hero ns wo probably
would, in llko circumstances, In any
slmllarcommunity nt tho North. What
llttlo disrespect wo havo met with has
been from wiurcjs unworthy of regard,
and has scarcely met with any counte

Asirnvn.LE, April 15, 1871.
Tho Ktt Klux Conspiracy.
In commenting on tho grandiloquent
but nbjurd proclamation of tho Presi
dent on tho Ku Klux subject, tho
Washington Patriot says:
It sots out with ti bold perversion of
truth, by declaring, that tho nccoj.-Ity
for this legislation "Is well known to
havo been caused chiefly by persistent
violations of tho rights of citizens of tho
United States by combinations of law
less and disaffected persons, in certain
localities, raieiy tno tneatro ol insurrec
tion ami military cnnnict." This allega
tion is flatly contradicted by tlio otllclal
renorlsof tho Governors of tho Southern
States, and by tho regular message of
tno rresiuent to congress in JJeccmuor.
It is notorious hero that this wholo
Ku-klux agitation was fabricated by
Morton, Butler, and other constitutors
for political effect, nnd that It was at
flrot opposed by tho moderato lteptibli
cans ot both br.tuchc3 of Congress. Aud
this fact is mado clear as ilav bv the
ovenls which transpired after tho fourth
of March. Tho Commlttco which waited

In tho Senato, May !, 1871, Sonnto
bill No. 023, entitled "an net to lncor-,
porato tho North nnd West Branch
Itallroad Company" was reached In Its
order upon tlio prlvato calender. Tho
bill wiw upon Its , second reading, tho
question pending being upon nil amend
ment that tho road should bo construct
ed by way of tho borough of Muncy,
Tho following debate occurred s
Mr. BUOKALEW. Mr. Speaker, 1
desiro to call tho, attention of Senators
forn few moments to tho only local bill
In which I havo felt much Interest nt
this session tho only ono In which tho
peoplo of my county feel nny consider
able degreo of Interest. This bill Is to
nuthorlzo the construction of n-rnllroad
between tho valley of Wyoming and
tho valley of tha West iiranch-ln other
words, between Wllkcsbnrro nnd Will
lamsport. Tho road follows tho south
Bldo of tho river to n point opposite or
near tho town of Bloomsburg, crosses
tho river, nnd following tho valloy of
Llttlo Fishing creek, extends Into tho
valley of tho West Branch, In other
words, It crosses the dividing rldgo bo
tweon tho two rivers nt tho only point
nt which u railroad can bo conveniently
constructed. It Is n rond somo seventy
or eighty mllta iu length, nnd it will
require, of course, nn effort toobtnlti
the capital necessary to Its construction.
Now, what Is tho object of this rond?
It Is to shorten tho lino between tho
North nnfl West Branch about four
teen mllc3. Tho road will bo built only
becamo it shortens that lino of commu
nication between tho Wyoming nnd
Wc3t Branch valleys. Tho Senator
from Huntingdon Mr. Pirntnci.v
moves lo amend to compel this railroad
to bo constructed by the town of Muncy ,
becauso ho says ho has bomo town lots
there. I havo mado inquiry, and it Is
my conviction that this would tako tho
railroad out of its proper lino u diitanco
of not less than thrco inilc3, nnd tnko
away tho very object or making this
road, to wit: to gel the shortest possi
ble lino between Bloomsburg nnd
Williamsport. Tho .Senator says that
Is tho best routo. All I desiro Is to have
tho road run whero tho engineers Will
put It, where tho Interests or tho road
requlro that It shall bo constructed. I
am under (ho Impression that this
amendment will throttle Ibis bill ami
defeat tho enterprise- altogether. 1 was
to'd In tho former debate that wo might
como back next year and get a supple
ment- I would rather let tho wholo
project fall until next year. If tho Sen
ato aro wllllngto givothopooplo of that
region an opportunity lo construct their
road, lot them voto for this bill, which
allows tho road to bo laid over tho very
best ground that tho engineers may find
practicable. Tho road must cross tho
river through what is technically tho
town of Bloomsburg, which extends
two or thrco miles nlong tho river. It
must cross nt that point in order to get
Into the valley of Llttlo Fishing Creek
I Introduced this bill on tho twenty
fourth day of January. It went to tho
Commlttco on Itallroads, nnd slumbered
thero sometime. I waited and waited,
expecting my bill to como back. When
I inquired about it, I was told by the
Senator from Huntingdon that his
brother had written tohlin to "kill that
Mr. PETBIKIN. I am n5t on tho
Mr. BUOKALEW. I began to get a
llttlo importunate, and finally I was
told that tho bill was lust, nnd it has
never been heard of from that day to
this. I then had a now bill prepared,
introduced it, aud on motion mado tho
Senato Instructed tho commlttco to ro-
port It. Under that Instruction it was re
ported. It eamo up nnd tho Sen
ator from Huntingdon objected it
off tho calendar. And so, from tlio
21th of January to tho beginning or
May, this proper, laudable, Important
bill has been throttled and choked here,
becauso thero aro somo town lots In
Muncy. I hope tho Senato, under this
statement of facts, will concludo that It
is about timo this bill should pass, and
that this amendment should not bo put
upon it. If tho amendment is put upon
it, I shall drop tho bill.
Mr. PETBIKIN. Mr. Speaker, tho
zeal which tho Senator shows for tho
passago of tlio hill, shows that perhaps
ho, n citizen of Bloomsburg, may havo
somo town lots thero that ho Is as much
Interested iu as 1 am in my town lots
nt Muncy. Certainly he has displayed
a llttlo moro energy nnd zeal upon this
bill than oven upon public bills. Even
when ho gets tils mensuro of cumulatlvo
voting before tho Senato, ho does not
display as much z?al as upon this bill.
Ho says the object of this bill is to
shorten tho routo in bringing coal from
tho Luzerno region to tlio West Branch
of tho Su-quehanna river, and thonco
North. Ho lias stated to you that by
going to Muncy it will bo deviating
from a btralght lino by nbout thrco
mlle3, when tho contrary Is tho exact
fact, ns their own map, mado by them
selves and brougltt hero into this chain
Mr. BUOKALEW. Thero has boon
no map mado by this compauy, or any
body concerned iu It.
Mr. PETBIKIN. Two gontlemen
hero representing thlsN. and W. Branch
railroad eamo to me, and ono of them
gave mo this map, and It has been In
my possession ever slnco. By looking
at It you will discover that tho road, us
laid out, dovlates four miles from
straight lino, In order to got rid of tho
town of Muucyi It U said that tlio ob
ject of this bill is lo mako n short routo,
and that it will encumber tho bill to put
another point in it. By reading tlio
hilt you will seo that instead of asking
for n chnrtcr to mako a road from
Wllkesbarro to Williamsport, thoy
carefully put In n provision that it shall
run down on tho bouth sldo of tho Sus
quehanna river, and that It shall go by
tno way or moouisuuig nnd Fishing
creok, thus designating points lo suit
themselves, and when wo usk for an
other point, thoy spy H will kill tho bill.
If that Is not unfair, I do not know what
Is. I cannot sco why they should havo
selected that routo, n dlstanco of about
eighty mllos, whon thoy could havo so-
lected n great deal shorter routo.
I did state, whou tho bill was up be
fore, why I took somo Interest In it. It
was becauso I was born nntl raised lu
Muncy, and my patrimony, mid tlio lit-
tlo my father left mo, Is thero In town
lots. My brother wroto mo n letter, nnd

Mr. BUC1CALEW said thnt tho map
referred to wns mado by tho Muncy
Creek railroad company another road
altogether and they hud drawn nn Im
aginary lino to llughosvllle, and had
not laid down tho location of Muncy
accurately. Ho did not own nny ground
lu Bloomsburg proper, nnd neither had
nor expected to hnvo nny pecuniary In
terest In tho now road. Tho road wns
can led down tho south sidonf tlio river
nsnu unoccupied route, nnd to obtain
southern nml western connections, nnd
It was necessary lo fix somo placo for
crossing tho river, to gain tho Llttlo
Fislilngcreek route. Tho placo fixed In
tho bill wns tho proper one. Ho had talk
ed with mauy persons from Lycoming
eounty,nnd they wero generally In favor
of tho road nnd opposed to the amend
ment. Mr. WHITE said he had nover voted
ngalnst .1 railroad enterprise, and did
not intend to; tlio Senator who intro
duced this bill had declared that it
meets tho views of tho partlos who
honestly desiro lo construct this road,
nnd that tlioamciidiuciit might kill this
enterprise; therefore, ho would voto
against tho iimendiiicutund for tho bill.
Mr. PETH1KIN said thero was
another road now Incorporated for tlio
purpose of covering part of this very
ground; It was being surveyed now;
thisbill wasfortin antagonistic road, got
up, ho had no doubt, to defeat tlierlghts
of that company.
Mr. DILL. Mr. Speaker, I havo to
do tho Senator from Huntingdon tho
justice lo say that I moved this amend
ment. I did it becauso thu peoplo of
Muncy, llku nil peoplo Iu tho neighbor
hood of a proposed railroad, aro very
anxious to havo that railroad reach
their borough. 1 moved tho amend
ment becauso somo of my constituents
desired mo to do so. I do not wislt to
embnrrnss nny railroad bill, I wnnt to
seo nil tho railroads built that can be.
Tho people I represent nro satisfied that
this amendment will not kill tho bill.
I know nothing about tlao topography
of the county, orlho correctness of this
map. If this map bo correct, certainly
Muncy would boamoretlireetlluo than
that now laid down.
Mr. BUOKALEW. That map Is ut
terly incorrect. Nor do I consider this
a rival of tlio other road ; thoy are quite
Mr. EVANS thought theso amend

Mr. PETBIKIN further moved to
nmend by striking out all that part of
tho bill which fixed tho routo of tho
road down tho south sido of tho river
from Wllkcsbnrro nnd ucioss at or near
Bloomsburg and then by way of Little
FishIngcreck,so ns to leave only Wllkes

nothing to hinder tho engineers from

To tho l'ditor of tlio CoLtntniAN;
As our county now forms ono Legisla
tive District, it is timo wo bhouhl con
sider who shall represent us in tho nox';
Assembly. Wo havo had difficulties
enough in agreeing with Montour upo n
a representative, now let us show our
wisdom, when tlio matter rests up on
ourselves, by harmoniously selecting n
proper and nccoplablo man a man of
ability, or Integrity, a bold nnd fearless
democrat, ono entitled to tho suCrngo
of tlio parly by Ills fidelity nnd services
In tlio past. I say a man of abil ity
ono nblo to speak for our rights ati.d to
defend tliem when attempted to tio In
fringed upon, for tho tlmo Is past when
a yca-nnd-nny man should rep resent
our enlightened peoplo In framlu g laws
for tho government of this great Com
mon wealth. Wo want n man of known
Integrity, so that wo may bo nt i party
to Lcglslatlvo corruption, so common
in theso days.
bir: I beliovo tho candidate announ
cod In your last Issuo has all these (juaU
ties. Ho is too well aud favorably
known in tho county and Stato for mo
to Introduco him to tho peoplo. Hogal
lantly defended his country in "tho
tlmo that tried men's souls.'' When
thoso who bought her honors, refused to
bare their breasts inhcrdefoneo,ho was
found at his post prepared for death or
victory. Now when thero is au oppor
tunity let her show her gratitude, aud
appreciation of his services. Long nnd
well has ho ably advocated tho princi
