THE SURFACE IS SINKING
Cavc-in That Began in on Old Plane
in the Von Storch Mine.
HOUSES THAT ERE INJURED
The Ground Is Still Settling Somewhat but
It Is Believed That tlio Greatest
Damage lias Already
A settling of the earth In the neigh
borhood of the Hlghworks and the
Brisbln breaker at Providence Is creat
ing much uneasiness among the resi
dents of that portion of the city.
Early Sunday morning the roof of
what Is known as the "old No. 2 plane
of the Von Storch mines" began to fall
and the result of the full soon became
noticeable on the surface.
There are three veins In the Von
Storch mine, the Diamond, Fourteen
foot and the Clark, which lie In the
order named beneath the surface.
It Is supposed that the fall started in
the Fourteen foot, or middle vein.
The plane leads from It and has been
abandoned fur a number of years and
the timbering becoming decayed was
no longer able to sustain the weight of
the rock above and succumbed.
The fall quickly spread to plane No.
3 and to the Brisbln and Cayuga work
ings, which are connected with the Von
Protecting Cayuga Workings.
Men employed In the Cayugu mine
heard the rumbling and knew that a
fall was In progress and at once began
to put up props and throw collars
across the points where they feared
the cave would invade that mine.
This prompt action saved the Cayuga
from any great injury, but there was
sufiiclent caving In both the Cayuga
and Brisbln to throw a number of men
out of employment yesterday.
The greatest disturbance to the sur
face Is noticeable near the Back road,
but about Stanton and Fulton streets
und vicinage there is also direct evi
dence of the havoc that was being
wrought In the bowels of the earth.
The properties of Patrick and John
Mulhern and Edward Corrigan, on
Kuane street, and Mrs. Mary Martin,
on Back road, have been damaged by
the settling of the earth. The build
ings have sunk and' cracked, while
doors and windows refuse to open or
Water pipes have burst and the wells
In the affected districts are dry. The
water has all leaked out of a reservoir
on the West mountain.
Although the ground is still settling
somewhat, It Is thought that the great
est damage has been done.
IIF.R PINK AND WHITE PARTY.
Little Miss Sutherland Kntcrtulns a Lurgo
Number of Friends.
A pink and white birthday party was
given yesterday afternoon by Mr. and
Mrs. J. II. Sutherland at their home,
CIS Washington avenue, for their
daughter, Mabel May Sutherland. It
was the fourth aniversnry of her birth
and the event was celebrated by about
twenty masters and misses between 3
and 6 o'clock In the afternoon. Noth
ing was lacking in the exquisite taste
of the floral and, table decorations and
other details necessary to carry out the
pink and white idea.
Mrs. Sutherland was assisted In re'
celvlng and entertaining the little ones
by Miss Kelper, of W ushlngton avenue.
and Mrs. Charles Guldott. The house
was arranged with autumn leaves,
palms, evergreens and pink and white
chrysanthemums. Two large refresh
ment tables located in the reception
room and parlor contained birthday
cakes with pink alid white frosting
and candles, individual bouquets, paper
napkins and plates colored pink and

birthday cake and the many dainty re

THOMPSON IN NEW YORK.
Ills Bondsman, J. G. Reese, Very Anxious
for Ills Return.
An echo to the suspended publication
of the Scranton Evening Free Lance
appears in the flight of Benjamin F.
Thomnson and the anxiety of his
bondsman, J. G. Reese, who will lose
Jnnn If ThomDSon Is not captured.
Thompson was arrested Saturday
evening on a warrant issued by Alder
man Wright on complaint of Walters
& Co., who did the printing for the
Free Lance publishers. The firm
charged Thompson, its manager, with
obtaining money under false pretenses
and appropriating to his own use Tunas
due the Free Lance which were ordered
nald to Walters & Co. Alderman Wright
at Thompson b requesicontinuoa satur-
day night s hearing until yesterday
morning after accepting ball for
Thompson's appearance furnished by
Mr. lieese in the sum or ;uu.
Thomoson did not materlaize at the
appointed hour yesterday, and later in
the day it was learned ny teiegrapn
that he Is In New York. The prosecu
tors refused to release Mr. Reese from
his bond save on the condition that he
would make good his friend s pecula
tlons. As It would cost more to do this
than to bear the expense of re-arresting
Thompson In New York, the bondsman
chose the latter method, and hopes to
have Thompson under arrest at an
early hour this morning.

possible attention to decorum. Electra
hus a quurrol with Signor Bonanza,
niuriager of the Imperial circus, and re
signs her position. Bonanza seeks to
force her to keep her contract by having
her arrested. To perform thlB legal
work he engages the services of Archi

popular comedians, Tim Murphey

portrayal of the grizzled congressman
In A Texas Steer . Mr. Richards be

Yankee character in "A Midnight Bell

his characterizations are too well known

a generous hearing Is best evidenced by

The Latter, He Asserts, Is Not a Friend of
the Vt'orklnginun While the Former

Hon. T. V. Powderly has made the
following statement with reference to
the present Republican campaign in
"Where right and wrong contest for
the supremacy In the affairs of state It
becomes the duty of the citizen to
search for the truth In order , that It
may become so well known that error
will fall before it. In their personali
ties, apart from every other conBldera?
tlon, do the candidates of the Demo
cratic and Republican parties for gov
ernor of Pennsylvania represent right
and wrong. The worklngman Is ap
pealed to for support by elements rep
resenting both candidates, and from
the labyrinth of slander and campaign
misrepresentation It Is scarcely possi
ble to discern whnt the characters of
the two men stand for. We cannot by
looking to the future alone form an es
timate of what the official life of either
of them may be. We can, however,
form nn idea of how public affairs will
be administered if we study carefully
the past records of those who aspire to
office. By comparison, too, we can
more accurately Judge as to the fitness
of the men and the probable superiority
of one of them.
Some Facts Related.
"In comparing the record of General
D. H. Hastings with that of William
M. Slngerly one need not hesitate as to
how he should vote, and In addressing
myself to the workingmen of Pennsyl
vanla on the subject I do not presume
to advise or judge as between the can
didate. . It shall be my aim to relate
facts, state conclusions arrived at after
reviewing these facts and then leave
the matter in the hands of those whose
wlllmustdccide whether right or wrong
shall triumph. It has been the aim of
some to obscure the real issue in this
campaign behind a cloud of falsehood
concerning General Hastings. His rec
ord as an employer of labor and a
friend to labor has been attacked and
misrepresented. He has never posed as
a champion of labor, and his record as
an employer Is consistent and honor
able. In July, 1S82. when members of
the Knight of Labor were arrcBted for
conspiracy In Clearfield, It became my
duty to open up a correspondence with
General llastlnirs. then practicing law
at Bellefonte, with a view to securing
bis aid in defending the men. In my
letter to him I suggested that the pros
pect for a very large foe Bhouid not
teniol him to take the case, and from
his answer I quote tho toiiowing:
v.,t the fi-e "ht the lustlrc of the
cause Is what 1 shall tie influenced by.

tt defended the men, and up to the
present time I have never received u
bill for his services. I have never
heard of his presenting a bill to any of
the men. His example shone out rc
Hiiieiwimitiv In 1NS7. when he went Into
the coal business extensively. He
abolished the company store at the
mines which he purchased, lemoveu tne
bluck list on which the names of sev
eral union men hnd been Inscribed,
recognized the union ns an organiza
tion worthy of respect, and continued
to treut with It as tha equal of the
corporation of which he was a part,
When strikes or controversies took
place In the coal regions committees
representing the mining fraternity
called upon me frequently at Phila
delphia to seek assistance In settling
the pending difficulties. The need of
an arbitrator, or more acurately speak
Ing, a conciliator, presented Itself on
each occasion, und through the infiu
ence of General Hastings, acting as
peacemaker, several very ugly affairs
were settled with honor and aatlsfac
tlon to the men. On one occasion, when
the employers were contending against
tne recognition or the miners' organiza
tion, General Hastings said:
" 'I have tho greatest resnect for this
organization, and would far rather treat
with Its officers than be In constant worry
over each Individual case. The men have
un undoubted right to be heard through
their elected officers. Think of how diffi
cult, how Impossible It would be for every
worKmnn to come down nere trom West
moreland to present his grievance as an
Individual. It would never do, and I do
hope that this objection against treating
wun me organization win oe waiveov
It was waived. Were I to enter
upon a recital of the many acts In the
career of General Hastings which re
dounded to the Interest of the workmen
It would take too long. I have never
seen or heard anything to his discredit
and believe that such a man would
command tho respect and confidence of
employer and employe as governor of
tins industrial comonweaith.

to break the power of the union through

could be raised to the operation of the
linotype on the Record, but Mr. Sln
gerly Isues a circular to the publishers
of Philadelphia, offering to do their
printing with the aid of the machine
at reduced rates, and their refusal
alone prevented the hardship which Mr.
Hingeny intended to vlBlt on the print
ers who favored American wages for
"Slngerly would have no man In his
employ who believed that he should
have a nay In regulating his own wages.
"Hastings always met the workmen
half way In disputes concerning wages.
"Slngerly would make use of the
wealth saving machine to drive the
Belf respecting American workmen Into
"Hastings always treated his em
ployes with the same consideration he
demanded for himself.
"Slngerly never recognized or affili
ated with, American workmen until
after his nomination.
"Hastings never hesitated to meet the
workmen on a level with himself.
'The Issue In Pennsylvania, aside from
every other consideration, Is squarely
drawn between a man who believes In
the right of the workman to fair wages
and treatment and a man who would
deny to workmen the right to organize
or expect fair wages or treatment. The
68.000 organized workmen of Pennsyl

next governor, and If they vote true to
their pledges to labor they will cast
