HEARING TAKES PLACE TODAY.
ScTtuitoiiinuo iu to Morristowii in
the Train W recking Case.
The crew of Delaware, Lackawanna
mid Western train. No. 12, were sum
moned to go to MoiTlstown, N. J.,
today to attend the hearing of John
Vssras, the Pnlunder charged with at
tempting to wreck that train near Dov
er, N. J., six weeks ago last night.
It will lie remembered a switch was
turned, and the frog jammed with cob
Me stones so that it was almost cer
tain a terrible accident would have
occurred had not the engineer saw the
cobble stones In time to stop the train
before reaching them. As the emerg
ency" brake was applied the conductor
of the train jumped to the window to
look ahead, and us he did he saw a man
standing between the tracks, his fea
tures clearly revealed by the light from
the car. When It was discovered what
the trouble was ahead a search wus
made for the man whom the conductor
had seen, but he was nowhere to be
found. Quarter of an hour later an
other train tncountered a switch that
had been tampered with less than half
a miln'bark from where the first at
tempt had been made.
rjctPCllvcB were on the scene In short
order and before three hours hud
passed this Polander, Vzras, was ar
rested on suspicion. He was found
sU. liking around Dover, and as he had
switch grease on hla hunds the de
tective thought best to hold him. The
next tiny Vzras with thirty-nine other
inen, some of whom were countrymen
of his, v. ere arranged In a room in the
Morrlstown juil and the conductor of
the train was ushered In to see If he
could Identify any of them as the
man whom he had seen from the car
window. He unhesitatingly selected
Vzias as the man.
Vzras is supposed to be demented by

DANGERS OF THE
LIFE OF A MINER
It Was the Subject of Rev. D. P. Joan'
LAWS FOR THEIR PROTECTION
Reverend Speaker Believes That
They Should Be More Rigidly Kn
forred.Hinrr Is a Useful Member
of Society, Whose Safety It Is the
Duty of.lline Owners and Olliciuls
Rev. D. P. Jones, of the Tabernacle
church, West Side, preached a sermon
yosfrday morning from his pulpit o"h
"The .Miner." Ho took for his text the
words, "Thou shalt not kill," taken
from Exodus, xx, .1;;. During his dis
course lie said:
line oi" the most proiltable servants of
society Is the miner who goes down to the
pit to work out our coal. It's a fuct that
he Is not appreciated according to the
value of his labor to humanity. The ma
Jorlty of people have an Inclination to look
down on the class of men that are work
ing In the mines mid laboring their
strength out in the darkness of the earth,
when It is u fact that their servlca is nil
essential to the happiness of society. The
occupation of the miner Is very dangerous.
As a rule the upper veins which are to a
gre.it extent free from gases, water und
caves are worked tlrst. But when we llnd
mines opened to the lower veins and sunk
to the depth of hundreds of feet throUKh
the heart of the most fiery elements of na
ture, then becomes the occupation of the
miner a most dangerous one, demanding
tho greatest care.
In such places only miners of experience
should bo employed. Such u policy would
pay the masters by reducing the number
of accidents und consequent loss of lite
und property. The masters and employ
ers that are doing so are far better off
than those that give employment to
whosoever may come and ask for It.
Those that are careful In' so doing are
tho best employers and should have the
confidence of the miners. A question that
comes before us here Is, Does the miner
have the defense due to the difficulties
of his employment V We believe the question
Important, especially in the days when the
Hlttston disaster should give us a little
light upon what the miner has to take
care of. There are thousands of our fel
lowmen compelled to work out their
strength In the mines, therefore we Bhould
think of them from the standpoint of good
human feelings We believe that the rudl
ments of Christianity demand an Investi
gation of the management and the defense
that thousands of miners get In this
country, especially from those that are
employed as officers by the owners to look
after their mines.
HAVE UOOD MINE OWNERS.
We believe that we have as good mine
owners as van be found upon the face of
the earth. Yet a great many of them
are not acquainted with the principles
of mining, and have to depend to a great
extent upon their ollicers. On the other
hand, we have great confidence In many
of the officers that are In and around the
mines. We have good laws In regard to
mines and mining. The Inspectorship that
belongs to the mines Is of great value to
the miner and should be so to the em
ployer. But after ull, It stems that the
miner needs more than he has today, anil
It is time to Inquire where is the weak
ness of his defetiee.
Has the pulpit and the church any
thing to do with the right of the miner?
I believe so. In these vjllies our church
es (as common people, are composed
mostly of miners, and they are good peo
ple; we love them, we Uy to preach to
them the Gospel of Christ end we cannot
do so without going some times down to
the mines to see how they are treated by
their mas'srs. We are glad of the great
Improvements that have been made by
law In the interests of the miner during
the past twenty years. But sometimes
it seems to me that the most of them are
as dead laws. What may be the reason
of It the reader may think for himself.
As we have mentioned before, we believe
the occupation of the miner is very dan
gerous; we also believe that many acci
dents have their cause- in the fact that
miners are unqualified for the work they
profess, to be able to do. It would be of
great value to most miners to study what
they have to do In the mines. 1 don't
care much for the nmn that does not
study his daily occupation to an extent
that enable him to be a muster of his
What nn unreasonable habit exlsteth
among miners to leave their fellowmen
alone in the mines the greater part of the
day when they need not to do so, and to
spend their time on the streets. My deur
friends let it die out and take hold of
the best method to master your work for
the safety of yourselves as well as your
IT IS NOT THl'E.
On the other hand. Is it not true that
many accidents In our days happen
throush the negligence of the- officers In
authority at the mines to act in accord
ance with the laws. The ollicers of the
mlr.s are in there to do what the law
demands, and are In better position to do
their work than the miner that has to
work hard to get his coal ready for the
car. The unfairness comes In when the
authority is heedless of the law that pro
tects the workmen, and then stating after
an accident that everything had been done
to have the colliery safe when facts arc
plain to the contrary. Who can deny that
in ninny eases tho authorities have com
bined together to testify to the wrong,
rather than confess the real causes of ac
cident. Sometimes It seems to me that mules
and working materials at the mines are
of greater value than men and boys. It
may be that I do not look at things In the
proper light, but, however, I cannot less
than express myself in that way when 1
am compelled to take up some facts.
Tho avarice for wealth has much to do
with the hardships of the miner. Men In
offices are very ambitious to have ,the
honor of working collieries as cheaply .ls
possible. It Is the duty of every ollicer
to do his best to save, and not to waste a
dollar of his master'3 money, and he
should be gioritled in his ambition of do
ing so. But there ls another feature to the
same law that should insure to the miner
his rights. His life ls not to be sacrificed
on the altar of narrow doings In order to
Increase the profits of the colliery and to
add to his great name. We do not see any
reason why the rights of the miner should
be taken away from him because there
are plenty of men to be had. Of course it
happens sometimes when hands are scarce
there Is a better chance to have higher
wages. But when man is employed by his
master and doing his work according o
the law of his master, his master Is re
sponsible for his rights and his life should
be protected by his master while he Is on
duty that Is as far as the law of the state
and the country calls for, and, moreover,
If tho master has a manly feeling, he
should do so without the power of the
JOHK HOWARD'S WORK.
John Howard did a grand work by going
as a ministering angel through dlffere.it
prisons and jails of the world to know
tho true condition of .those that were in
bondage, ls it possible that we arc In
need of another kind of John Howard
In our days to travel through our collieries
to examine and to be witness of things
that are going on where the sun of the
day does not throw its light? During the
past years, what are the terrible accidents
that are on record as of Nantlcoke, Kings
ton and at Plttston. falls and cavesl
What, can they toe the works of Provl
dene? No, no, my dear friends; "Clod
Is love." Think not of Uod as the author
of such disasters. Let us come back to
the duties of men toward each other; let
us try. to be faithful to the laws of na
ture; let humanity have Its flace In our
thoughts as well as In our doings; let
the law of Christ teach us not to abuse
things of this world whluh are given io is
by the lord.
There are secrets In connection with
mining life that should be made known to
society, so as to feel the right value of his
labor. We know that the miner lias his
faults as well as other workmen; he
knows that himself. We believe that he
woubl be on a higher stand today than be
is If he had been more faithful to hlmseir,
to his master and to the laws of ad
vancement. But after all the miner of
today deserves anfl Is worthy of more
praise for his service to society.
The great need of our days In regard to
mining is to bring the miner and his mas.
ter into u closer understanding with each
other, (iood humanity should be of great
value In the sight of the owners of mines
to chose their ollicers to look after the
miners In their collieries. Men of educa
tion are a blessing, but, when education
and good humanity are combined In tho
same ollicer he ls a man to bo proud
of, and as a rule he keeps the master sat
isfied as well us the people who are work
ing for him.
NO PLACE TO DRIVE MET.
The mines Is not a place to drive and
force people to do things at the first
thought. Man that is regardless toward
man and his rights should not have charge
of mines, because he lacks in one of the
greatest qualities to such a position. A
manly mun should be of great value In
the sight of those good people that are
giving out their wealth In behulf of their
fellowmen. The state puys a great
amount of money to those officers appoint
ed for Inspecting mines; does it pay? is a
question Ihnt comes often to my mind.
After an accident the officers are to be
seen, but what about them In the proper
time, are they of some use? A mine that
gives an output of l.ouo tons of coal daily
for one month without being visited dur
ing such time by an inspector seems to me
a very wrong thing. How could a man In
such Btrungeness to tho working testify
to the safety of the mines?
The miners In general should be Inter
ested In tho prosperity of their masters,
and should endeavor to keep up with good
laws to that end. Masters and the work
ing people ore great losers of money by
frequent accidents of the mines, to be
sure; it comes more upon the workmen
because their lives are taken away and
their families are great sufferers. Noth
ing can pay better to the company as well
as to the people that are at work than
management according to law. The man
that has no regard for law should not at
any time carry tho name of a master, nor
should he have his freedom to enter Into
the mines as a common miner. Life,
O, what a dear word, how we love tt,
what can be of greater honor than to give
man the best chance to live.

while they may resemble the signals
that miners are wont to give by rapping
on a pillar, they can be readily ex

sounds are made by "squeezes," as ev

The rescuers have gained about for
ty feet since Friday night, which ls
the average progress made since the
descent of the slope was begun. As
they have over 630 feet yet to go before
reaching the foot of the slope, it can be
seen that there are still many days of
weary waiting for the bereaved rela
fives, whose only hope now Is to secure
the remains of their beloved ones that
they may give them Christian burial.

SAD FOURTH OF JULY.
It was the saddest Fourth of July
that I'ittston has ever known. There
was no cannonading and only a few
thoughtless persons set off any lire
works. The only celebration was the
one conducted by the Bicycle club,
which held a parade and races in West
Plttston, .which they felt they could
not postpone on account of the great
expense to which they were put. How
ever, to show that It was through no
lack of consideration or sympathy they
did not put off their meet, they will
turn over 25 pei cent, of their prollts to
the relief fund.
This fund Is growing steadily, and
promises to reach most liberal propor
tions. The committee which ls to have
It In charge will meet at the bourd
of trade rooms In Pittstou this after
noon, for the purpose of organizing,
when a treasurer Is elected and people
from abroad see that there ls a proper
and authorized custodian f'ir the money
it Is expected that many contributions
will be received.
Representatives of the different coun
cils of Young Men's Institute of this
city ard vicinity met in the rooms of
John Boyle O'Reilly council, on Lack

and voted to make a systematic col
lection among the members for the re

of the Institute.
