THE SCU ANTON TKIBTTNE-MOXDAY MORNING. JANUARY 2S, 1895.
PROCRME OF THE WEEK
Forecast of the Kork Tbat Will Come
THE STRUGGLE OVER HAWAII
Will Probably Dud in tho Passage of a
Resolution Condemning the Adminis
tration's Part in the Kuuipus In
By tho United Press.
Wnshlng'ton, Jan. 20. The adoption
by the senate yesterday by a majority
of two votes of Vest's substitute for
Mr. Allen's Hawaiian resolution Is but
ithe bpftliinlrig of a struwfle that will
probably continue during this week,
und as Republicans confidently predict,
will end In the passage of a resolution
condemning the administration for the
jjart it has taken in Hawaiian affairs.
Ulr. Vest's substitute, which now forms
the basis of the discussion in .the sen
ate, but which lias not yet received
llnal atllrmutlve action, will not be
permitted to come to a vote for some
days. It prevailed yesterday by the aid
of two .Republican votes Messrs.
Powers and I'ettlgrew. The former, It
ia said, will not support the resolution
when it comes up In the senate fur
formal disposition. The Vest substitute
endorses the policy of non-intervention
nnd tin- Allen resolution declares for
annexation and the statloaiing of ships
of war at Honolulu.
All the I'opullsts are In favor of Mr.
Allen's resolution, which has been tem
porarily displaced by the Vest substi
tute, and the Republicans are said to
tie of the same mind with the single
exception of Mr. I'ettlgrew. There will
ll two accessions to the Republican
vote before ithe week Is over in the per
sons or Mr. Mantle and Mr. Clark to till
the Wyoming vacancy. Mr. Mantle is
expected to reach Washington early In
llie week. Mr. Clark is on his way here.
This will give the opponents of -Mr.
Vest's substitute the majority vote and
will enable them to pass such a resolu
tion as they may desire.
The Republicans declare ithey will not
permit any llnal vote to be taken until
.they have their lull strength In the
senate, and will consume the morning
hour each day on the Hawaiian matter.
Mr. Teller, In line with this policy, will
continue his speech Monday, and will
probably be followed by other Republi
cans until such time as they see lit to
allow the vote to be taken.
linsincss ill the House.
The house will begin the week's busi
ness tomorrow under some uncertainty
vt the order in which It will be prosecut
ed. Although the consideration of the
bill repealing the differential duty on
pugar wis begun yesterday and is a
privilege d matter, no certain assurance
can be given s to when its considera
tion will be concluded. Mr. Wilson has
said that ho would not at present ask
for a rule to close debate and members
of the committee on rules have not
been advised by him as to his wishes
In this matter. Tomorrow will be open
for a continuance of the discussion, but
judging from the manner In which it
started Saturday one day will by no
means afford sutlicleiit time for all who
wish to speak to be heard. The com
mittee on rules have agreed to give
the Pari He Railroad company Tuesday
and Wednesday for consideration of
the funding bill, but it Is intimated that
if Mr. Wilson insists on keeping the
sugar duty 'bill before the house until
dlcposal of the Pacific Railroad bill will
be postponed. The committee on naval
affairs have i'ven notice that their ap
propriation i 111 be called up Fri
day. Should the K.cilie Railroad bill get
the floor It will be the first time, with
one exception, in seventeen years that
a bill directly affecting the Union and
Central Pacific Railway companies has
come before the house. The last Pacillc
railroad legislation was the Thurman
Mil, which provided that both roads
should pay into the sinking fund 2."i
per cent, of their net earnings for the
extinguishment of their debts. The law
has been faithfully complied with, but
the sums received from the companies
have not been sufficient to pay the in
terest, t say nothing of the principal.
The JtelHy bill, which Is the one to be
considered next week, provides for the
adjustment of the d'bt by applying the
moneys In the sinking fund to the pay
ment of the first mortgage bonds and
at'iiulrlng the directors and stockhold
ers to furnish whatever additional
amount may be necessary.
The obligation to the government will
then be continued for a period of fifty
years, the companies paying the Inter
est at the rate of I! per cent, per on
num with semi-annual payments on the
principal until the debt has been, fully
Messrs. Itoatner, of Loulslnana;
Cooper, of Wisconsin, and Harris, of
Kansas, will oppose the measure. These
gentlemen, Mr. Reilly says, prefer a
different method of settlement, but the
other twelve members of the committee
are agreed that the Reilly bill provides
the best means of settlement. The rep
resentatives from the Pacific coast will
oppose the .measure because of their
objection to any extension of time for
the payment of the Central Pacllllc in
FOIt SEW BATTLE SHIPS.
Representative Tnlbott Introduces on
Addition to Nuvul Appropriation 1)111
Relating to Torpedo Boats.
Ey the 1'nlted Press.
Washington, Jan. 27. Representative
Talbott has prepared an addition to
the committee report recommending
the passage of the naval ppropriatlon
bill relating to the provision for the
construction of three battleships and
twelve torpedo boats. He onys this Is
substantially the last payment on ac
p j3UHUfej7lbaSilQ AND
count of the vessels provided for by
law. Unless new constructions are au
thorized expenditures under this head
will fall with great rapldlfy after the
next fiscal' year and thereafter entirely
disappear from the annual appropria
tions. It is estimated that with the ex
penditure of not more than $750,000 for
the fiscal year ending June, 30, 18H7.
tho existing new navy will have been
entirely paid for and that the expendi
tures under "Increase navy'" will de
crease at one bound from the amount
asked far this year, $13,259,292, to $750,000
Without considering the effect of the
cessation of this work on industrial
conditions, thereportcontlnucd.and dis
claiming all obligation of the govern
ment to engage in public works for the
purpose of giving employment to any
class, however deserving, the commit
tee urge that from the standpoint of
national defence it will be unwise to
stop entirely the work of naval upbuild
ing; that wisdom and fxperieuce de
mand that the present weili-organlzcd,
highly-trained and exceedingly elilelent
body of mechanics and skilled laborers
engaged in the work of na val fhip build
ing shall not, at least, be entirely dis
banded. With .the stoppage of tills
work many large plants now at work
for the navy will have to shut down
either completely or In part, and their
corps of skilled workmen employed in
the various phases of naval construc
tion anil development be dlschaigi-d
and scattered, while the plant and ma
chinery for the production of vessels of
war must of necessity become idle and
be allowed to deteriorate.

The detailed report of .the op"i'ation
and output lot' tho ConiK llsville coke re
gion for the week ended on Saturday,
Jan. 19, shows 11,270 ietive, and :i,5til
idle ovens with ia tutu! estimated pro
duction of 1 10.MS tons. Compared with
the production of the previous week
this was a decrease of 3,222 'tons. In
the active list of ovens there was a de
crease, of 451.
Philadelphia. Inquirer: "The annual
xtport f the 1 lxware, Lackawanna
and Wiistern ml I road affords cumula
tive evidence of the distress of the uu
thcucite carriers. Although the road
transported 7,S--,!7li tons of coal as
ugiir.ot 7,934, Snj ilons In ISM, when the
maximum tonnage was reached, yet the
road failed ti?H.rn its dividend for the
time since the great co.il war of
1873. The company reports a deficit of
$196,656, aind its .net earnings on the.
stock 'were Junt 6.21 per cent. The iv.-t
earnings re.pairUd for 1S91 wire tho
Muallef a of any year since 182 tlvat is
since the bu'lncsns of the road attained
Its present proportions. The significant
feature of the eta'tement is not the
loss in profits, for nil roads through
out the country are making kiss money
than a yp.ur ago, but it is that the re
duced profits ww made on practically
the same caail tonnage. In only two
y?a.rs prior to 1S91 did the Lacka
wanna carry more caai than it did last
ye .ir, and the difference In either year
wa.j not important. The reason for
the .bad statement is cus'.ly found: it
Is the same r.sisun that cut down the
Lehigh Valley until it earned only its
llxed charges, that cut dawn the Read
ing until lit did mot earn its full inter
est prior to the gvnei'al mortgage bonds,
and that cut down the New Jersey
Central until it Is qucsticma.ble whether
it has really earned anything for lt3
stockholders. That reason Is the re
duction in tidewater freight rates.
Thirty cents a ton has been thrown
away and it 4s 30 e: nts in net profits.
It mwins neo.riy $12,000,000 a ymr to the
holders of securities of the anthracite
coa.1 roads. And the companli s ore be
ginning the yeirr with no prospect of
remedying the situation. The contest
is still gi!ng on between the companies,
coal is selling lower than dt ever fold in
1S94, and the prospects are for slill
lower ccuil prices and still lower freight
ii j :rs before this war is ended, and the
anthracite companies are once more
placed on a proper basis."
Philadelphia Stockholder: "The an
thraelte trade situation, .in so far its it
refers to the effort to readjust per
centages, J without change, and is
likely to continue, so for the next week
or ten days. Thi-re is no doubt that the
several interests are endeavoring in
every way possible to better the situa
tion. The Lackawanna, of the more
prominent Interests, and a number of
the smaller operators, form the stumbling-block
to an early adju-tlmntit of
present difllculties. At the first meet
ing of presidents of the coal roads
Vice-President Fahncstock, of (lie Jer
sey Central, informed the meeting that
If something were not done, und done
oon, the l.ckn.wanna would not earn
dividends nor the Jersey Central Inter
nal charges. The latter company i3
earnest in its desire to improve the con
dition of the trade, and is understood
to be willing to make certii.in conevs
slu.nn. Several other large producers
are In harmony wlt'h the Jersey Central
on this point, but their efforts s-o far
have been handiompped by the Indiffer
ent .attitude assume:! by the Iacka
winna, and the smaller operators re
ferred to. ..A gentleman well informiil
on coal matters, ppeaklng of the situa
tion yesterday, ci'id he thought the
various stetckholdi is should take the
matter in hand themselves and tuach
representatives that the time feir
squandering their money In useless nnd
profitless competition had passed. Not
one of the presidents of 'the coal roads,
110 said, would take the position they
have and display as much indifferences
to the Interests they represent If losses
came from their pockets, Instead of
from stockholders. As the latter's rep
resentalvea no longer seem nble to
handle the coal business successfully,
the gentilenran argued that the stock
holders Interested should see to It that
ofllolals were elected who would do
Justice to their Intcirests, Instead of en
dangering them, as now."

known." "The world bows its head to
elo honor to Hubert P.urns." "The poet
for the people, of the people and by the
people." Mr. Colborn concluded his ad
dress with references to one of Burn's
greatest works, "The Cotter's Saturday

listeners with a song entitled "llonnle

ToastmastiT Campbell called on C.
I. A. Chapman to respond to the toast
' Industries tr Wyoming Valley." .Mr.
Chapman, being an old pioneer, re;
c.'iilled many Interesting reminiscences
of his early days In the valley and ex
pressed himself as delighted with its
extensive and rapid growth. Mr. Chap
man cjiicluded w ith an article prepared
by himself on Burns, and by reciting
the poem, "Highland Mary." John
Cov.vn next brought back the thoughts
of the old days in Scotland by the song,
"How Ye O'er the Clyde."
Charles Law was culled upon to re
spond to the toast "Our Native and Our
Adopted Country." Mr. Law interest
ed the -audience with many outbursts
of wit a ml expressed a desire that
more of th. Scottish nation would
come to this country and replace our
present alien population. James Rich
ardson then sang a song, entitled "Cale

ter Watson next recited In beautiful
style "Man's Inhumanity to Man."
Archie Lindsay, of Plains, enter

the "Blue Hells of Scotland." Dr. D. L.
Husa responded to the toast "The Army

marks. With a few promisclous selections the

which all enjoyed until the wee hours
of the morning.

1XT0 A HXE SUMMER RESORT.
Scovlllc's Islund Will lie Transformed by
the building of a Hold and a llridge to
Klvcr Street, West Pittslon.
Spuclal to tho Seranton Tribune.
Pittston, Jan. 27. Since 186S the own
ership of the valuable tract of land
known as Scoville's Island, which is
situated in the Susquehanna, river Just
apposite the West Pittston cemetery,
had been a matter of uncertainty, and
during the past nine years a matter of
litigation until last week, when these
liiflie-.ultles were adjusted through the
Island's purchase by W. S. Tompkins.
The .Inland contains fifty acres, is sit
uated a.love sulphur water, has a fine,
fihuded circumference driveway ulmost
a mile in length, Is .high and dry In all
kinds of weather and offers exceptiemal
facilities for a pleasure park, a state
fair ground or a summer resort. The
rivor on cither side is well Btocked with
line bass; a number of excellent lakes
ure within easy access and If the sum
med hotel which Is projected by Seran
ton and Wilkcs-liurre capitalists upon
this Island should be built as planned,
Pittston would undertibtcdly gain a lib
eral sliare of the summer tourist trade.
It luiis already been decided to erect a
bridge from lilver street, West Pitts
ton, to the island, and the company for
this purpose will on Monday or Tues
day make application for a charter.
Several years ago the island was
sought by the state fair authorities as
a site for that lan'ge exhibit, but Ina
bility to give a clear deed Interrupted
the lie-gotlatlons. Now that the Island's
ownership Is fixed, It Is safe to predict
important developments in the near
future, developments which will be of
general Interest In the twin valleys.
