United Mine Workers Present Him
with Two Handsome Gifts.
A committee lepiesentlng the Uni
ted Mine Workers of Ameilca of Cnt
bondulo nml vicinity united on Itov.
If. .1. Whalen, D. D.. Inst evening
nnd In behalf of their colleagues pre
sented the icvoieiul gentleman with
u handionie gold hendeil enno and a
beautiful coal paper weight. Dr.
Whalen during the lecent strike up
held the Htmut of the men and on sev
eral occasions delivered eloquent nd
di esses In thi-lr behalf. Tha members
"I" the Revet nt local unions decided to
give him some small tokens of tho
hlch esteem In which they icgnrd him
nnd (lelcBites fiom each of the vntt
oils unions composed the commute?
which waited on tho reveiend gentle
man last evening. They gatheted In
a body at the municipal building nnd
nt R.30 marched In a bodv to the
lliptlst piusonage, Accompanied by
Miss Lillian Collins, daughter of Ilcmy
Collins, tho otgnnlzor, who made the
picsentatlon address
Dr. Whalen lecelved tlie mliwrs
with the greatest lurdlallty, although
at a loss to know the object or their
lslt, After n few general romaiks,
Mr. Collins 1110H0 and CMitessed tho
committee's gratification at being so
hcaitlly welcomed. As a lule, he said,
miners committees were used to being
shown the door. He then Introduced
his daughter.
Miss Collins had a neatly woided
address of picsentatlon, which she
delivered In a manner most creditable
to hetself, and In which she fully cx
piessed the centlments of the commit
tee. She stated that although the
miner Is genet ally considered as a
lough, untcflned man, he Is as quick to
appieclnto 'the sympathy nnd gotid
will of his fellows us Is any one. The
dangers of his vocation force upon htm
a realization of his dependence on his
fellow men. While this class of men
stand ever ready to extend a help
ing hand to each other, they may not
expect the .same kindly feeling from
those abovo them In social life.
The woikman nnd his employer are
not bound In the same kindred ties
which they should be and the piln
clples of the church and nation ate
little practiced in the dealings be
tween them. The young lady spoke of
the many Inequalities existing and
said that while many professional and
business men admit of the justness
of the ctles of oppressed labor few
had the courage to live up to their
convictions. The speaker told of the
objects of the miners' union and
touched upon the circumstances lead
ing up to the recent stilke.
She told how few business and pio
fesblonnl men essayed the cause of
the strikers. Then she spoke of the
noble and outspoken stand taken by
Dr. Whalen and how much encourage
ment It gae the men, and of their
heartfelt gt.itltude to him. Since that
time, she said, united labor has iec
ognlzod In Dr. Whalen a ft lend. She
then ptoduced the gift and asked
him not to look upon their Intrinsic
value, hut to look upon them merely
as slight tokens of the feeling held
by the mine workers for him.
Dr. AVh.ilcn was taken completely by
suiptlhe and could not lespond for sev
eial minutes. He asked the lommltteo
to bellce that his woids (ould not ex
press the slncei e gi.itltude which ho
experienced fiom their kindness to him
nnd assuied them that his sympathy
for united labor is as stiong today as
It was. that memorable day on Sandy's
Held. He said thut no man rejoiced
mote at the signal victoty of the min
ers In their lecent struggle than he
did. He said that In taking tho couise
he had put sued he had considered it
only his plain duty and had not ex
peeled any such mateilai reward as
this. His opinions weie beyond ptlce,
he said, and that ho believed the mln
Isteis of the chuich should be the first
to lend a helping hand towutd the wel
fare and common good of tho masses.
He saw In the lecent success a link in
t lie chain of gteat achievements.
Ho said ho feaied his ft lends had
over-estimated tho value of his suppott
but he Hssuied them that he meant
to give them his best. He compli
mented Miss Collins upon her addiess
nnd thanked her for tho many kind
woids shj said for him and assured tha
committee that they would eer find n
win m welcome to his home.
Following the picsentatlon the committee-
enjoyed a delightful social
bonis, Mrs. Whalen adding gieatly to
tlnr nnjoyment by tendering seveial
beautiful ocnl selections. Mls Col
Jlns also iccltcd u poem In a seiy of.
'.fecllVf manner. The committee de
patted, olclng their great feeling of
'gratitude to Dr. Whalen, to which ho
heartily responded.

Robbed the Clothesline of a Poor Wo

Mis. Jane Davis, widow of John
Davis, who lives at 4S Kler stieet,
and supports herselt and her octogen
arian mother-in-law by selling home
made pastry and doing washing for a
few patrons, was the Ictlm of a sneak
thief on Tuesday evening.
Mrs. Daln had commenced to take
In a customer's laundiy, which1 was
drying on a lino beside tho tear of
her home when a llttlo gill came to
buy some yeast. Mrs. Dnls went Into
tho house to get the yeast and loft
the remainder of the clothes on the
line. When her Juvenile customer
had depaited Mrs. Davis went out of
tho back door to ilnish her taking-ln
of the clothes. She wns just In time
to see a pair of boy's knickerbockers
mysteiiously suspended In the nlr and
traveling toward a high fence back
of her house. She screamed and the
trousers, In company with a polo with
a hook in the end, fell into her yard,
while a woman's face which had been
plainly In iew, suddenly vanished and
a sound of quick footsteps was heaid.
Mrs. Diuls took an instant only to
see if tho thief had gotten anything
and discovered Immediately that a
dozen palis of silk stockings belonging
to ono of her pations at the Hotel
Ameilcnn wete missing. No clue was
left of the thief nor does Mrs. Davis
know who the woman wns. Shu is a
woman who can III nffoul a loss, even
a trifling one, and the theft of the
valuable hosiery is a serious matter,
indeed, to her.
