Chicago, Nov. 'j. Ex-Governor Win.
1 Mcrrlatn of Mlnnchntn, director of
the United Stated census, spent sev

Washington to his home In St. Paul,
where he wont to vote. In discussing
the itiihis, he said:
"The liik'fro llgure'S shown by the re-
cent census of this country are a bltf
and pleasant surprise to me. None of
US nt tho hurenu hurt j-xneeted a turner
total than 75,000.000, hut. much to our
surprise and gratification, it has ex
ceeded that number by more than 1,
ooo.ono. "Wo reckoned that the decreased

work a decrease In tho percentage of
gain for tho decade, as comiinrcd with
the decade preceding, lletween 1SS0

"The munbrr of fdrms In the United
States proves to be about 5.800,000.
"When complete tho census will show
facts about each form.
"tn 1S90 there: were some Su.'i.OOf)
manufacturing institutions in tho
United States. Now, li: round num
bers, there are about b'00,000. The in
crease in tlie number of plants will
b. shown to be very Rroat in the
west. The south also has added to
its manufacturer. AVIiether the in

Our dear fiiends have failed In lake into lon
siih'iation the circumstances that have caused
them to fall, fur we cannot but lealizc that Ibeic
are fomc cxtciimtin ch cumstanccs and as
thomili the Scriptincs have been veilficd and the
iniquities p." the iannts isited upon the chit
drni to thu thiid and foiu'li generations and in
many of the cases wc do not line to trace
even this far bad. in their line of ancestors for
it is a &ad but Hue fact that many of tbibc Rirh
hae nucr known a better life but of cour.se.
theru aie exceptions and some of them have bad
burroundinprs that .sould haic tended to a better
cuiidition but nllll the, h.no in an edl hour
and under the jiowcr ot the tempter fallen, and
when this .sad moment in their lics conic, so
ciety has a tendency to shun them and k'vo then
no oiioitunlty to ledecm themselves but at
once ii-.es up and condemns, oftimtR net even
giving them a chance to cam an honest living'.
To be Mile we feel that an evil life is to be
condemned but still when a dcidre is rhown or
caressed to .eform they should certainly bo en
couraged aud helped and this I believe Is the
(jie.it thought and object of our home, gills are
only admitted when they have a desire to lead a
better life ani come to use of their own tree
will and if they remain with us it is became
they disire to do .so and not because they are
compelled. Whrn in our home everything jios
bible 's done with the aim of helping thei.i In
that hetitr .'ind nobler life tli.it is Inlindid lor
womanhood, and their suiroimdiiies is made for
them us much like a Christian home a.s love

Tonnage from Two Others, and Is
Reaching Out for tho Control of

Years It Has Become an Import

Tho Mt. Pleasant Coal company Is
now ntlUlatcd with the coal depart
ment of tho Ontnrlo and "Western. The
negotiations which have been on for
some weeks aro now consummate!
and another valuable colliery has beon
added to the list of thosu Lending their
coal over that road.
It was only a few years ago tho
Ontario and Western began reaching
out for coal carrying business, but
It wont at work with a vim and to
day Is doing a very considerable
share of this trade. It takes tho total
tonnage lrom twelvo of tho best col
lieries of the valley and a goodly
part of tho output of two other mines.
The collieries which contribute their
totul tonnage; to tho Ontnrlo and
Western, and which are practically
controlled by It are the Pino Urook,
Cajiottse and Mt. Plousant, West Ridge
and Clark Tunnel, of Scranton; Red
mond No. 3, at thiv northern extremity
of the city; the old Jcrmyn No. 4 of
tho Johnson Coal company, tit Piice
burg; the Ontario and Utuo Ridge, at
Rlakely; the Riverside and Raymond
at I'eckvllle, and tho Richmond No. I,
at Rlchmondalc. Tho Northwest col
liery of the Tomjilet Iron company, and
the Mt. Jessuji colliery of the Mt.
Jessup Coal company also deliver to
it a largo portion of their output. It
is estimated that the company now
handles over 2,000,000 tons a year of
tho coal mined In Leckawanna valley.
AT MT. PLEASANT.
The Mt. Pleasant will continue to
bo operated nominally by the Mt.
Iieasont Coal company, but eventu
ally may be grafted with tho Capouse
and Pino Hrook in tho Scranton Coal
company, which, with the Now York
and Scranton Coal company and th
Elk Hill Coal and Iron company, con
stitute tho mining department of the
Ontario and Wiastorn.
Throe largo vvasherlcs will also soon
contribute their product to the Ontario
and Western. These arc the .Mt
Pleasant, Juct completed; the Capouse.
which is Hearing completion, and the
Carbon, which lias been in operation
for some time and shipping on the
Ontario and Western.
At present tho Mt. Pleasant product
goes over the Delaware, Lackawanna
& Western road, but arrangements
will bo made ut once to transfer Its
shipments to the Ontario and Western
but just how this will bo done Is not
yet known. Tho Mt. Pleasant com
pany, some time ago, wanted to divert
a jmrt of its shipments to the Ontario
and Western, but was estopped by nn
Injunction issued at the instance of
the Delaware, I.uekawanna and West
ern, restraining it from erecting con
veyors from Its breaker across tho
Lackawanna's tracks to tho feed on
tho easterly side, where it was intended
to erect pockets from which cars
brought up on 11 branch of the On
tario and Western could be filled. An
appeal was taken from tho Injunction
order and it is penillng in tho su
TO SHIP COAL.
Should the Injunction bo continued,
tho Ontario and Western, could) still
secure the Mt. Pleasant output with
out suffering any other road to share
In the carrying traffic, by taking the
coal underground to cither the Pino
Prook or Cajiottse collieries.
It is understood the Ontario and
Western is still reaching out for more
contributing collieries and that tho
Dolph and Pancoast are among those
for which it is negotiating.
Mnny thousands of dollars have been
spent by the company in expanding
its coal business, and It appears to
be perfectly willing and anxious to
expend thousands mora if It can se
cure desirable properties.
