Part of a House Fell on Him.
While a force of Itallnn laborers were
digging a trench iu the rear of V. I..
Blair's new house in tho rear of Sixth
avenue, in order to connect with the
water main, oius of them was hurt by a
peculiar accident and was taken to the
Emergency hospital, but was not seri
ously hurt, Albert A. Wright, the car
penter, hud the two gable ends uf the
building propped up against the side
of tho house while he was busy doln'v
work on something else. The Italians
had gone quite close to thsm in their
course of digging a furrow iu the
ground, and Mr, Wright cautioned
them to be careful, as the gable ends,
which were about ten feet square,
might fall on them. Hardly hud he
uttered the warning when one of them
toppled over. Mr. Wright heard a
shout of "Look out!" and Jumped to
una side just in time to escape the
heavy timber. One of tho sons of sun
ny Italy, however, was not so fortun
ate, for tho edge of It struck hlin on
the back of tho head and tho shoul
ders, doubling him up In a crouching
position, The rest or tho men sprang
forward and lifted the gable end, Tho
victim of tho uccldont, whose name Is
Fred Truant. or something like It
was stunned for a time, but recovered
sufficiently to bo able to walk to the

Mother Jones Speaks.
Mother Mnry Jones addressed a large
crowd In St. Hose's hall last night.
Tho meeting had been arranged spec
ially In reference to the silk mill
strike, and on the platform were about
fifty of the striking employes. Ilemy
Collins, of the Central Labor union,
presided over tho meeting, fie first
introduced Edward Faagan, president,
of the silk mill union, who oxplnlned
the grievances of the employes. The
crates with which the silk is weighed
formerly, weighed about two pounds
each. Sow they have become broken
and in some cases weigh but 11 few
ounces. For this difference In tho
weight of the crates, he says the em
ployes must prepare so much extra
silk without getting any extra pay..
In conclusion, he said that the strik
ers are perfectly willing to have the
trouble settled by 111 bltrat Ion. The
employes want a dollar n day.
A young man named King, who is
among the strikers, told how his
wages had decreased peroral dollars,
and then Mr. Collins Introduced
Mother Jones, who was received with
loud applause. She said the American
people wns born in a strike ami now
iu the closing hours of the Nineteenth
century, even the children have to
strike for their rights. She scored-tho
mill owners for the way the clilldien
are dragged almost from tho cradle
to tho fuctory, and she then scolded
the parents for allowing: such condi
tions to prevail. She denounced on In
dustrial system which allows the chil
dren of the poor to shed their blood
for the education and pampering of
the children of the rich. The wage
slavery of itoday, fine asserted, is as
bad, every whit, us was the mini slav
ery of bygone days.
She roundly scored the- mill bosses
for the filthy language used In hear
ing of the girls and boys, and deplored
the corrupting influences into which
they are thrown. Such conditions will
but foster a race of puny, good-for-nothing
men and women. She bewail
ed the fact that the children are drag
ged so young from the school room.
AVe will build jails and then make the
criminals to till them. We won't give
them an opportunity to earn an hon
orable living before, but we will keep
them for nothing after they have been
forced to commit cilme. Mother Jones,
in closing, urged that a committee be
appointed to hear the grievances of
the employes and then confer with
the mill owners and sec if some agree
ment cannot be reached.
Following out her suggestion, tho
following committee was appointed:
Joseph Johns, Patrick Toolan, A. 3.
Padden. T. M. Davis, Thomas Mooney,
Hartley Plglilln, John Walsh, John
Scanlon, George Spall and 'John
Hermes. A meeting of the employes
will bo held nnd the committee, after
becoming thoroughly acquainted with
the circumstances, will wait on I ha
operators and endeavor to effect a set
tlement. About fifty new members
were enrolled into the union last night,
Miss Lindsay Is Not 111.
A statement was printed in an even
ing paper hero last night that Miss
Lidu Lindsay was sick with typhoid
fever and was iu the Emergency hos
pital, whore she wnuhl receive the best
of treatment. Miss Lindsay's brother
died from this disease last Saturday,
and the statement that Miss Lindsay
was also prostrated caused great sor
row among the many friends of the
family. The Tribune is very glad to
contradict this article this morning.
Miss Lindsay was ill the evening be
fore her brother's funeral with an at
tack of nervous prostration, but had
recovered in the morning nnd uttended
the obsequies held over her brother,
and Immediately afterward accom
panied her mint, Mrs. John AV. White,
of Scranton, to the latter's homo, where
she now Is. Aside from her grief at
her late loss, Miss Lindsay is now ns
well as sho ever was.

By the recent collapse of the Buf
falo Land Improvement company n
number of Jerniyn residents have suf
fered severely. The lots were well
boomed here some years ago, and on
the strength of ono of the promoters,
who wns known and related to resi
dents of the borough, the lots went
like hot cakes for a time. It Is said
that local people Invested In tho neigh
borhood of $13,000 In the enterprise,
among the Investors being some of the
prominent business men of the town.
Other Investors were hard-working
men, who, In some cases, Invested their
life savings, and on these the loss, of
course, falls most heavy. This Is not
the first land Investment In which Jer
niyn people have been caught, but It is
almost certain that the painful lessons
taught by the collapse of the Buffalo
Land company will make Investment!!
of that kind extremely unpopular here
ubouts for a few years to come.
Today will bo observed as a general
holiday among the stores and business
