DOES NOT FEAR PRESIDENT.
Mrs. Carlisle Saya II I)ea Not Frown
t'pon Uar Rleyola Hiding.
Washington. March 16. Mrs. Carlisle,
who ia the only one of the ladies of the
cabinet who has learned to ride a
wheel. Is amused by the statement late
ly made that the president so far dis
countenances the practice among
women that he has asked the cabinet
ladles not to tide. Mrs. Carlisle owns
up to a fondness for riding and a con
siderable degree of proficiency, but
neither on nor the other has ever ,
tempted her, or probablr wer will tempt
her to ride about the city streets. Her
Washington riding has so far been en
tirely confined to the field where aha
The president, however, has not is
sued any proclamation against the cab
inet ladles wheeling, nor will his views
on- this subject be of that sort at all.
On the contrnry. If he said anything It
would be In favor of the sport.
BOYCOTT THE PASTOR.
Other Ministers of Lud tag-ton 1H Not
Share Rev. Mr. I.niifmon's Views.
Ludlngton, Mich., March 16. Several
pastors huve. it is said, united against
Rev. William L. Loufinan, whose sensa
tional attacks on dunclng have con
vulsed this community. They even go
to the extent of boycotting the minister
ial association when meetings are held
at the Methodist parsonage.
Meanwhile teachers are dancing mer
rily every Friday evening, and the
dancing school prospers as never before.
A Hazleton dispatch says: The old
Ruck Mountain colliery, which was
abandoned twelve years aso by the
Buck Mountain Coal compuny, again
gives promise of being the most pros
perous mine In the region. About two
years ago, Kckley n. t'oxe muue un ex
amination of the- place. The geologi
cal history of the strata was better
known to him than to anyone else, aim
he felt convinced that It would be worth
reopening the mine, and he according
ly negotiated a lease for the Cross Creek
Coal company. Since Mr. Coxe's death
the latter compuny has followed the
lints luld down by hint. A new plane
was built, a tunnel ariven to giie It
natural' drainage jftrtd t a tripping
opened.' A railroad Over which Ihij coal
was to be carried to EckleyVus ulsd
built. Prospectors were also at work
searching for a new vein which Mr.
Coxe felt sure existed. Last night the
workmen discovered this vein and it is
even richer than anticipated. From the
borings it measures 124 feet In thick
ness. Independent of the old works,
which it was proposed to reopen and
strip the outcrop, the new vein will
warrant expensive shafting and means
a new lease of life to the town so long

The number of persons employed In the
anthracite coal industry Is 143.610. In
1895 there were 422 fatal accidents and
1.120 other casualties. One person was
killed for every 121.344 tons of coal
mined and one person was Injured for
every 45,721 tons mined. In 1894 the
fatal accidents numbered 445 and the
other casualties 925. The chief cause of
accidents Is fall of coal, which causes
45.26 per cent, of the fatalities and 33.39
of the minor casualties.

Sir William Van Horne. president of
the Canadian Pacific Railway com
pany, when asked regarding the al
leged co-operation of the ilrand Trunk,
Canadian Pacific, and Michigan Cen
tral Railway companies in building the
proponed $3,000,000 bridge from Windsor
to Detriot. Ho said: "The Canadian
Pacific has had nothing to do yet with
the undertaking, but, If built, there is
little doubt that all the railways cen
tering at Detroit will make use of it.
The Michigan Central has never com
municated with us on th subject, but
I know It hns been wanting to do some
thing of the kind for years, na the
truffle has practically outgrown the ca
pacity of the ferry-boats." He snld
that a tunnel was first spoken of, but
Its practicability wa.i too uncertain to

THE WORLD OF BUSINESS.
Wall Street Revlow.
New York, March 16. Speculation at
stock exchange to the regret of com
mission houses continues narrow and
professional. Today the transactions
were 179.6S4 shares. There was little
news afloat to affect speculation outside
of the publication of the Northern Pa
cific plun of re-organlzatlon. Even the
effect of this important announcement
was only passing in Its character. This
probably can be explained by the fact
that the provisions of the plan nre so
far reaching that the street, quick us
It Is to discount future events, has been
unable to fully grasp the subject mat
ter. The assessments on the stock,
however, were considered heavy and
some of the holders of the third mort
gage were of thr opinion that thele in
terests had been sacrificed for the- con
sols. The first effect of the pubcllatlon
of the plan was a decline In the common
to 1 and In the preferred to 11. The
consols 5s on the other hand, rose- from
45Vj to 49Vj(Ti48?4. The Northern Pacific
Issues were not particularly In stock
market, but In the bond department the
dealings In the Issue of the company
footed up in a grand total of $3,088,000.
The general railway list presented little
of Interest. At the opening the tenden
cy was downward, but after a moderate
reaction the market Improved. The In
dustrials monopolized attention. To
bacco which has been sold right and left
of late, took on considerable strength
and gradually worked nt 11414 ex-dividend
of 3 per cent, rose to 115ri and
closed at 1147s- The law Just passed by
the relchstag was considered favorable
to American refiners, fieneral Klectrlc
rose to 37i and later receded to 36fff 36
on realizations. Leather preferred
Jumped from 61 to Kli'i. and later
yielded to 62. Laclede Gas at one time
was in a. sham demand, rising to 29'w
for the common and 84 for the preferred,
with a subsequent reaction to 28V4 and
81 respectively. In the last hour of
business the market was firm in tone,
the strength of Tobacce and the steadi
ness of Northern Pacific preferred hav
ing had a good effect. Speculation left
off firm. As a rule, however, the rail
ways showed losses of 'AU tier cent.
The gain In the Industrials ranged from
to per cent, t-ucitio Aiau iuxi
