.W. Bemls, of the University of Chicago.
. An address was made on "Results
Obtained by Voluntary and Temporary
Movements" by William G. Low, a
member of the committee of seventy of
New York city. Speaking of such
movements, Mr. Low said. In part:
Work of Committee of Seventy.
"But there have been great voluntary
and temporary movements in the his
tories of olties that mark epochs there
in; that attend crises and result in en
during upllftings of their public life.
The recent movement in New York is
still fresh In pour minds; indeed, It Is
atill under strong headway. I embody
here a memorandum, substantially his,
furnished me by Charles Stewart
Smith, chairman of the committee of
seventy, whose duties connected there
with have prevented his being with us.
I think that you will agree that a man
actively engaged in such good work on
the Held of battle for reform should
be excused if he is not able to be pres
ent In the forum to tell of his triumphs.
What has been accomplished within
twelve months In New York city In the
matter of municipal reform? In May,
1892, Dr. Parkhurst from his pulpit
opened Are upon Tammany Hall. At
that time many sensible men regarded
his action as futile as Don Quixote's
fight with the windmill. But Dr. Park
hurst's character is not Inaptly de
scribed by ithe Bowery boy's reply to a
recent 'tirade In a Tammany election
meeting against Dr. Parkhurst on the
part of Police Justice Grady: "Tom
(Grady), he is a stayer; look out when
he gets after you." He moved on with
majestic force and as tireless as a
steam engine, calumny notwithstand
ing. In a year the community began
to admire his pluck, although still
doubting his discretion. A few began
to believe that a leader was In the fleld,
and that it was not fair that he should
make the fight alone. The press, a
little 'later, aJmost universally came Ui
his support, and had faith In the man;
his winged words were read levery
morning by millions of readers all over
"Then the pollcedepartmentand Tam
many's management were placed under
the microscope for examination. In the
fall of 1893 the Chamber of commerce,
the oldest and most influential com
mercial Institution In the United States,
with a membership of 1,000, comprise
Ing most of the great merchants, bunk
ers and manufacturers of the city, de
manded an inquiry into the truth of
the charges made by Dr. Parkhurst
against the police department, and
they sent a delegation to the legisla
ture, which resulted In the appoint
ment of the Lexow commltte. The re
volutions of the Lexow committee un
der the magnificent leadership of Ooff
aroused public opinion. The people
saw that the decline and fall of gov
ernment by the people was inevitable
unless this tide of corruption and the
foul brood engendered by Tammany
Hall, who ruled New York city, was de
stroyed, root and branch. The culmin
ating crime of Tammany was clearly
exposed, and that organization was
ehown to be the oppressor of the poor
widow and orphan, the fatherless and
the fallen, as well as the rich and pow
erful. All classes were Intimidated by
this conscienceless power.whlch seemed
"The committee of seventy, created by
en uprising of the people In the fall of
this year, less than sixty days before
election, voiced public sentiment, and
led the yay to the revolution which
culminated In the election of Nov. 0.
We have now a mayor-elect who can
be depended upon to rodeem the city
by every act in hla power."

Herbert Welsh's1 address on 'Munic
ipal League and Good Government
Clubs" was listened to with. much In
terest. Mr, . Welsh said, among other
"The apathy and Ignorance of a great
community, which has long suffered the
rule of a corrupt political ring, and has
had the poison of the corruption run
ning through its civic veins is, to those
obliged to deal with It, appalling. Edu
cation of the most persuasive and sys
tematic kind Is needed to overcome It.
But it can be overcome, and the way
to work it is to go direct to the great
centers of moral Influence, seek out In
telligent women of all classes, women
who believe In right and hate wrong.
Explain to them just how the political
machine fosters and protects moral
evil, and at once you have obtained a
most powerful auxiliary force, always
enthusiastic and untiring. Then go to
the ministers of all denominations,
choosing, as far as possible, those of
deep moral convictions, of sound sense
and of a courage that will not fear the
protest of the moneyed pews. The good,
earnest people who will help the league's
work are found In every class least,
perhaps, in that which represents great
wealth. It Is Just here that one great
Incidental benefit of this work comes In;
by bringing together good people, wide
ly separated and who would not ordi
narily meet, class distinctions are
erased, suspicions are removed, and n
feeling of comomn brotherhood, a co
operation In unselfish endeavor Is en
gendered. It Is quite indispensable to
effective league work that a highly
equipped, able executive officer, who
can give his whole time to the work,
should be obtained. Such a man should
be paid an adequate salary. He Is the
pivot on which success hinges.
"The brief history of the Municipal
league's work In Philadelphia Is not
without encouragement to municipal
reformers, though the work of reform
In that city is more difficult than in
New York, on account of that protec
torate which large numbers of our 'best
citizens' have given the machine. We
cannot boast of a municipal wickedness
so lurid and so flaunting as that to
which, let us trust, Dr. Parkhurst has
recently given the coup de grace, but
we face a civic corruption, an Indiffer
ence to public honor, a confusion of
right and wrong, which is even harder
to deal with, because It is Interlaced
more Inextricably with the busness, the
press, the education, and even the re
ligion of the community. Our league
numbers 2,500 members, with a very en
couraging Increase daily."

During the year ended Nov. 30, there
were 72 fatal und 126 non-fatal mine ac

The number killed excels last year's rec
ord by 12. As a result of the accidents
there ore 42 widows and 148 orphans. The
victims of the accidents are classified as
follows: American, 22; English, 9; Irish,
42; Welsh, 15; Scotch, 1; Oermuns, S;
Polish, 72; Italians, 7; Austrlans, 3.
While a force of men under Superin

Wllkes-llurre Coal company were sink
ing a slope at Honeybrook colliery last

week, a new basin was struck north of
No. 10, Honeybrook, containing twenty-
seven feet of the finest anthracite. It will
take at least fifteen or twenty years to
mine the coal. Next spring, another
breaker will be constructed. The, plant
will give employment to upward of 400
men and boys. J . .
All the companies protest they are liv
ing up to the new anthracite prices falth-
tuny and vessel freights have been ar
ranged on the basis- of cents from
New York to Boston, .and ,90 cents from
Philadelphia, which. In the Indulrer'g opin
ion, cuts off the last possible scheme for
price-cutting. What a good buyer could
do with an Individual producer has not
yet developed, possibly because there are
no good buyers In need of coal at present.
They all have orders in for a large amount
tor future delivery.
LaRt year the production of Nova Scotia
coal was 2,497,281 tons, of British Columbia
coal 1,095,889 tons, of the northwest terri
tories coal 238,395 tons, and of NeW Bruns
wick coal, 6,200 tons, making a total pro
duct of 3,837,505 tons for the whole of Can
ada. Of this thoro was exported from
Nova Scotia 180,000 tons, from British Col
umbia BfiO.000 tons and from 'the other
provinces 50.000 tons, or a total of S;)U,UO)
tons. This left the total consumption of
Canadian coal in Canuda 3,807,000 tons of
which 2,317,000 tons was Nova Scotia coul
and 495,000 tons that of British Columbia.
The Philadelphia Stockholder asserts,
upon shadowy authority, that Coxe Bros.
& Co. are selling Btove coal In Philadel
phia at $2.25 per ton, or 30 cents below the
circular. This is 10 cents per ton less than
the Reading Is receiving, and the latter
price really represents the extent of the
cut. The Reading figures are practically
equivalent to the selling price at tide
water. It is asserted thut Lehigh Valley
Is also selling stove coal at the Coxe Bros.
& Co.'s price. This, however, has not
yet been confirmed.
