THE NEGRO PROBLEM.
Suggestions lor Its Solution Ottered
by Prof. James V. Moore,
How shall we solve this problem?
This question Is answered by James l
Moure, u representative of his race, who
Is now in the city in the Interest of his
Cosmopolitan Library and Industrial
school nf Knoxvllle. Tenn. He says:
"It consists in the proper and right edu
cation of the tu croe'a liend, heart and
hand. First, the head; He must have
sulllolcnt mental culture to make him
an Intelligent man knowing what tod
Second, the lieurt: He must have in
stilled within him huncKt nnd right
principled so tlint he will do the richt
thing when he knows it. Third, the
hand: lie must huve a trained luind kj
n to apply his knowledge In some use
ful trade or occupation and be 'a work
man tlint tieedeth not be ashamed.' This
makes him a well-rounded nnd fully
developed intin. und such a man can be
lone other than a soud citizen, who will
make the world the better by ills hav
ing lived in It."
He says the uim of his Cosmopolitan
Library is to tlttow around the colored
men in the south the facilities for their
moral, social and intellectual develop
ment, while ut the same time lie teach
es them to work willingly with their
hands. The school is t be Htrlctly In
dustrial or manual training school in
which the boys and girls, young men
and women may leain Home useful

A SNEAK THIEF TRAPPED.
Wanted to Sell a Set or Carpenter's
Tools Which He Had Stolen.
At 7 o'clock Saturday morning Frank
Ludy, of Newurk, N. J., called nt the
second hand furniture and hardware
store of J. C. King on West Lackawan
na avenue and had in his possession a
kit of carpenter's .tools valued at $C5.
Mr. King in looking: over the Imple
ments saw the names of J. B. Quick,
Nicholas Kesfller and George McCann
engraved on three saws, and he sus
pected that Ludy was a thief.
Telling: him that he would buy the
tools, but could not pay for them until
the banks opened, he sent Ludy away
with a small sum to bind the bargain.
Investigation disclosed the fact that the
tools were stolen from a new house on
Irving avenue near the Moses Taylor
horpltal. When Ludy came back for
his money he was met by Patrolman
Walsh and Schmidt. In default of ball
Alderman Howe committed him to Jail
to await trial In court.

It has been impossible as yet to at
tempt the exploration of the airway at
the Twin shaft, reached Krlday after
noon, by the rescuers In the slope.
The rule that the men must not ad
vance until they secure the passageway
behind them has so far prevented any
additional loss of life and Inspector
McDonald, who Is din lug the work
of rescue, insists on mis rule being
strictly adhered to. For this reason the
exploration of the airway is delayed.
The slope is sufllciently cleared to al
low men to crawl throufrh to the point
where the airway branches off. but on
account of the precaution that the in
spector Insists on the men will not be
allowed into the airway until the Inter

that the exploration may be nttcmpted
Inspectors Roderick and Brennan
deny that they agreed with Inspector
Stein that the work of rescue ought to
bu advanced. Inspector Roderick in u
conversation with a Tribune reporter
said without equivocation that the stor

are absolutely untrueft The air that now
courses through the slope where the
men are nt work, lie said, is better than
it ever was und the re:o!t9 that It Is

Mr. Roderick refuses to have any
thing to say on the question further
than this. The operators of the mine,
he contends, are the ones who ought to
determine whether or not they should
continue the Benreh for the bodies; it
is not within the duties of the Inspec
tors' commission to deal with this ques
tion. THE RELIEF KL'N'D.
The prospect:) of raising: a suflictcnt
fund for the Pittston sufferers were
never brighter than at present. Bishop
O'Hura's appeal, sent out to the one
hundred and seventy or more churches
in his diocese means the addition of
many thousands of dollars to the fund.
Delegations of three and four members
of the general relief committee have
gone or are preparing to go to the large
cities of the East to make personal up
peals to the capitalists associated with
the coal milling interests, and other
moneyed men w ho might be urged upon
to contribute. Those wllo have already
been abroud on thin most noble mission
report very gratifying success. A plulii

who has heard of the calamity and its
results stands ready ami willing to do
something and it is merely a question
of how the contribution will be sens that
is being deliberated upon at present.
Employes of the L. I. & S. company's
works, through Foremen H. C. Swartz
and Michael W. Kelly, have sent to the
relief committee the handsome sum of

doubt be emulated In every large In

BISHOP OIIARA'S APPEAL.
In nil the Catholic churches in the
Pcrunton diocese, yesterday, a circular
was read from Bishop O'llara asking
prayers for the victims of the Pittston
disaster and llnunclal aid for the sur
viving numbers of their families.
The result of It will be that the relief
fund will be greatly increused. Next
Sunday has been set as the day for tak
ing up the collection ut the cathedral,
at St. Patrick's on the West Side and
possibly ninny of the other churches.
The Bishop's letter is a most earnest
appeal. After dwelling upon the terri
ble calamity and the ajony und suffer
ing that it caused the Bishop extends
sympathy to the surviving members of
the afllluted families aud offers' them
this consoling thought:
"Concerning them that have been so
unexpectedly called to judgment, we
would heal the wounds of bleeding
hearts with the balm of divine truth.
The sorrow that Is now ao bitter would
be sweetened. Indeed, by the knowledge
that they had received the jrrace of Ood
through the sacraments in the pres
ence of death. Cut In the most unex
pected summons from abovf, there Is
always good ground for hope. For It
must be ever borne in mind that God
can dispense with the ordinary condi
tions for the grunting of pardon for
Bin. And as the mercies of the Lord
are above all His works, and as it is
the will of God that all men be saved,
our hope Is nlways In the Infinite merits
of our Lord Jesus Christ who died for
all, and In the pleadings of the Sacred
Heart that loved men so much."
DUTY TOWARDS THE LIVING.
Then the circular reminds those to
whom it Is addressed of tlielr duty to
wards the dead: "It is a holy and
wholesome thought to pray tof the dead
that they may be loosed from their
sins." and then after speaking of the
duty towards the living and dwelling
upon what has already been and Is be
ing done to relieve their want, the
"All these agencies combined will not
accomplish too much. The church
should do Its share, and not merely
sanction but stimulate tho benevolence
and generosity of the people as a meri
torious work. Hence, we quote the
words of the great Apostle of the Gen
tiles, asking for alms for the needy of
Jerusalem: "And herein I give my ad
vice, for this Is profitable for you. Now,
therefore, ierfnrm ye It also In deed;
that, as your mind is forward to be will
ing, so it may be alao to pet form, out of
that which you have. In this present
time lot your abundance Rtipply their
want. Wherefore, uhow ye to them In
the sight of the chinches, the evidence
of your charity and our boasting on
your behalf. For God loveth a cheer
ful giver." II Cor., vll-lx.
TOOK UP COLLECTIONS.
We. therefore, direct that a collection
be taken u:i in the parishes of the dio
cese, and to this end you will read this
circular to your people. We leave to
the Rev. Clergy the choice vt adopting
whatever means they Ju.'ire best to pro
mote this work of benevolence. The
proceed will be forwarded to the vicar
general, Very Rev. Father Finnen,
And, finally, we extend our heartfelt
sympathy to our congregations at
Pittston and their worthy and devoted
pastors for the loss they have sus
tained in the death of so many and such

A MINIATURE WAR.
Broke Out in Raymond Court Yesterday
Atterncon and Raced Fiercely for a
TimeTwo Arrests Made.
The bad feeling between the Russian
Jews aud colored people of the 300 block
of Raymond court broke out into a
miniature war yesterday afternoon.
The air was tilled with sticks and stones
for about fifteen minutes and when the
police llnuliy quelled the disturbance
there were sore heads and bloody faces
galore. The worst Injured person was
a woman named Mrs. Jacob Silversteln,
who had her cheek cut open by u stone,
which It Is supposed was thrown by
George Douthard, one of the colored
The trouble was the immediate out
growth of the Hebrews' objections to
the disturbance raised by colored peo
ple quarreling among themselves. Two
colored men. George Douthurd. above
mentioned, and Bass Hicks, got Into a
dispute and peeled olT for u light In
front of the large brick tenement, next
tf Linden street, occupied by a num
ber of Jewish families. One of the He
brews went out to drive them away and
the two colored antagonists joined
forces against him.
At the first exchange of blows rein
forcements for both sides commenced to
pour out of the houses and burns on
either side of the alley and in less than
two minutes there was a crowd of one
hundred men, women and children
punching, pushing, pulling, throwing
stones and wielding clubs. The stone
throwing caused the contending fac
tious to draw apart and carry oil the
war at long range, so that when the
police arrived they hud but little
trouble in stopping the fray.
The only two arrests were Douthard
and Hicks, who were the primary cause
of the bother. No attempt was made
to arrest anybody else, because the sta
tion house would not be large enough
to hold ull the participants. It is likely,
however, that some of the other princi
pals will bo arrested later, when the
true state of affairs can be ascertained.
Douthard was stru k on the I. cud with
a club und budly bruised, others also
received more or less serious cuts und
bruises, but they kept themselves shady
for fear of being arrested and their
names or extent of their Injuries con
sequently could not be ascertained.
