Pleaded Before Mass Meeting in
Academy of Music John H. De
vine of the Central Labor Union
Scoies Silliman and Asserts That
Citizens' Alliance of Scran ton
Aims at Workmen Striking; for
Their Bights Talk by Treasurer
of Amalgamated Street Car Men.
Tliu cause of the Hlrlklnts' ciniiloyi'S
of the Srranton Railway coiiiijuny was
ploadprt last uiRht before n. gathnrimr
of about 00 nifin in the Academy of
Music. This was the flrat public nmel
im? In Carhondalu under thti auspices
of the trolley .strikers. The speakers
were John II. Devlno of the clerk's as
sociation of scranton, and foremost
ainoncr Hie active niembers of the Cen
tral Labor union of that city and I'.cIf
cn Orr, of Detroit, treasurei' of the
AnialKanialed association of street car
employes:. The latter supplied the
place of V. D. Million, president of the
association, who is slrk In bed at Scran
ton. Mr. Devine, who was the llrst speak
er, took tlie stand that the labor unions
stood for all that was Rood in Ameri
can liberty and that they wore not war
hiKr on corporations. Thelrwlshundtheir
purpose were to work hand in hand,
have a perfect understanding with cap
ital, to bi'lnif about, u recognition of
the liRhts of employers or employes
and with this recognition gained to
realize what is best in American citi
zenship. Incidentally, Mr. Devine took
up the cause of the street car men and
the attitude of the Scranton Hallway
company and the disposition of the
people of Scranton. He took notice of
the citizens' Alliance of Scranton
which he asserted was orfianlzed to
stop labor unions from striklnrt for
their rights.
Touching on the altitude of the peo
ple of Scranton and (.'arbonilale, he
declared that the fact that thov re
frained from riding as they have was
an indication that the street car men's
cause was not without right.
Mr. Devine pointed to the results of
the Civic Federation meeting In New
Vork city a few days ago which de
clared for a recognition of rights of
employes by employers. This is, he
said, was what the trades unions aimed
at. They were not warring on capital
but they wanted capital, which was
acknowledged by capitalists at this
great meeting to have been arbitrary In
the past, to recognize that labor had
some rights. This recognition which Is
being clamored for, is the keynote to
the solution of, the differences that es
trange these two parties, if men like
these declared that capital has been ar
bitrary If they have declared that for
a recognition of the rights of labor,
where, ho asked, is the Scranton com
pany going to stand In Its organization.
The Bnllway Company's Stand.
It Is well known, ho continued,
nil over America what the street
car men of Scranton have done to Bot
tle this strike. They tried arbitration,
conciliation, every means, but the
Scranton Hallway copipany refused to
meet any committee; It rejected every
means of settlement; in short H refused
to do anything that would mole out
justice to the men.
The. Central Labor union of Soranlon
had come out In favor of the strikers,
but If It did not know their cause was
a just one It would not for a moment
take the stand In which it did.
Not Organized for War.
Thp traded unions know that strikes,
to say tlie. least arc uuprolltahlc, bm u
strike is to tlm labor unions what war
is to' the nation. The. labor tiniona -ire.
pot organized for war; they do not
stand for strife; they aro for peace,
for perpetual peace. It la often pru
dent, for tlm most conservative conn
Iryto go to war, that peaeo may be
achieved, At the time of the Civil
wai-our country, through sheer force
of (ircuiuBtuncen, went to war that It
nilgjit perpetuate. tlo prlnelptoH for
WI1I9I1 It stood, It wiw practically Ihls
that, caused (he. fipanlsli-Ainerlcan

der jjlrosa of circumstances, engago In
that;:war thut Is known as a sirlke,
Tlje trade unionist has no apology
to make for bis connection with his
union, ' Ho is determined to march
along Ibo lino of civilization, peace
lily, If possible, but ho must do It. Tito
trades unions are not organized to
fight corporations, Uut to respoct
them. The trades unionist, If he is In
telllgent, la willing to marvh hand hi
hand with tlio corporation. In this
way only will our country hold lht
place, which It hus among nations.
There is no surer way to petputunlo
the success of the corporation and the
worklugman than to march Meadlly
along, amicably settling the disputes
that may arise,
Coming down to the refusal of the
Scrantnn Hallway company to ar'il
tratc or recognize Us employes, .Mr,
Devlin; said hr was sorry to say that
lllni'rt M'nl'n mii'tint'iil Inlto u'tltrtt Wnttlll

gent capitalist will deny that labor

thore an' men, he Tellingly said, who
have such dishonest purposes that, will
not allow tlieni to nthnlt their wrong,
even when they see It.
Strictures on Citizens' Alliance.
.Mr. Devlno approached lit" discus
sion of the Citizens' alliance nf
Scranton by declaring that the trades
llnlnim tin Iwtl lint',. In rri, lu.lllnd clnSPll

to the capitalist; they ask nun to

discussions. At the greatest labor or
ganization in lite universe, at its
greatest convention In Sernnton last
week, one did not have a secret pass
word to be admitted; one did not have
to have a limbless man vouch for
lilm. Vim ciinlil use vonr own Indg-
ment as to whether what was being
discussed was right or wrong. Any
thing that was narrow or un-American
was put where It belonged, not on I'.o
table, but under I ho table.
In conclusion, Mr. Devine u.-ked the
worklngmen to weigh well the atti
tude of the Scranton Hallway com
pany, particularly Its refusal to re
ceive ns iii'liltrntors such fah'-mlndd
men us Mishap Ilobuu and riesldent

lighting the Citizens' alliance, which
he understood was organized for the
purpose of suppressing strikes, under
taken to get the justice which the
wniklmrniiin nslceil lor. but. W.IS denied
him. Notwithstanding this alliance of
business men, the labor union would
march on In their righteous course,
to receive what was due thelit.
Mr. Orr spoke briolly. lie arraigned
General Manager Silliman for his de
meanor since the strike, and he re
lated the history of the organization
of street railway employes, inciden
tally he declared that !!) out or ion
strikes were caused by employers. '
President P. T. Shea, of the strikers'
executive committee, was present on
the stage.
An Addition Being Built for
Machinery Heavy Work to Be
Commenced Next Some Orders
Filled This Week.
The new foundry of the Carboudale
Metal works has been a most encour
aging start, and already it finds the
need of more room. This week work
was commenced on an addition to the
foundry, a small building which will
accommodate several pieces of ma
chinery, tumbling-boxes and other ap
pliances used 10 clean castings. It was
believed that there would lie room
enough on the foundry lloor for tills
machinery, but In arranging matters
the space allotted for these appliances
was demanded for other purposes.
The core oven and the traveling crane
will be ready for use in a few days, not
more titan a week. The oven will b?
one of the most approved type. Hand
ling the cores by men will be dispensed
with. -Machinery will do the work, it
steel ear conveying them to and from
the oven. The arrangement of the door
of the oven will permit of cores being
removed and put In to bake without
the cold air entering, or change the de
gree of heat.
The traveling crane will be in place
next week, a fact that will greatly
facilitate the work at the foundry and
increase the output. No heavy work
has been attempted yet, but will be
next week, when presses weighing a.
ton and 11 ton and a half apiece will he
moulded. This week a lot of small
castings were turned out. Among them
were parts of presses for making para
fine wax. These are for use in the big
factory of Proctor & Gamble, at Cin
cinnati, Ohio, the milkers of the famous
Ivory soap.
The distribution of the foundry's pro
ducts throughout the Villon will be
come quite a factor in making Carbon
dale known. The Carboudale Machine
company 1ms made Carboudale known
In remote parts of the globe, by ship
ping lis machines around the horizon.
Tito pity Is that there Is not more In
terest and effort In this direction, and
that energies are not directed by Car
boudale business men to invito and In
duce industries to locate In this city.
There is no reason why Carboudale
should not be teeming with Industrial
The success of the ( 'arbonilale .Ma
chine company, the Hendricks company
and the promised success of the Car
boudale Metal works ought surely to bo
an Incentive to Increased cITorts on the
part of the business community to land
Industries which are now and then
seeking better locations. M'lie prospects
are that the now foundry will be a very
big factor In this community before an
other year. Tlie policy of the company
will bo. to gradually and constantly
enlarge the plant, to branch out In the
making of products, until the Invest
ment is double what It Is today. This,
at least, Is the purpose of the company,
and the wish of the community Is that
it will be reallr.ed, It the wish he no

No trouble. Is mote common or more

Nervous dyspeptics often do not have
any pain whatever In the stomach, nor
perhaps any of the usual symptoms of

In some cases the heart palpitates and

Carelessness or Nervousness
It nil Jiajiboncil ina moment. Her linir caught in tlm
ueu niui Bwtuiy wouiiu nuout tuu Blunting, nor ones
wero echoed hy'lho screams of her frightened mill-mates.
Then the machinery wnii stopped and tho terrified ami
injured woman was released. " It was carelessness," paid
tho foreman to a reporter, "pure carelessness." IJut the
doctor said it was not carelessness hut nervousness. It
was a caso of a woman working when situ was not lit to
work, her nerves tjuiveritig to the shock and jar of the
machinery, her hrain dascdhy the struggle with suffering.
Men so seldom suffer with nervousness that they have
small sympathy for a nervous woman, Tliey look upon
nervous rttacks as just a woman's notion, nnd often as only
an excuse for ill-humor.
Tho very fact that nervousness afllicts women, ehieily,
points to its cause as being related to the female organism.
And the facts prove that, disease of the delicate womanly
organism is the most fruitful cause of the nervoHsim-sn
from which so many women suffer. Uterine and ovarian
diseases, unhealthy drains, inflammation, ulceration and
female weakness 5 such womanly diseases in one form or
another are in general responsible for the nervousness of
The. only way to cure this nervousness is to cure the
diseases that cause it. There arc powders and potions,
so-called "nervines," which are offered as a remedy for
nervousness. They may relieve, hut they cannot cure.
Even tho relief they give is dangerous, because it is pro
duced by stimulants or nerve-numbing narcotics. Sonic
men aro said to "drown their troubles in liquor." Tlm
liquor docs not lighten their load of trouble by one iota.
It simply stupefies thcra until tho dull brain is rendered
for a time insensible to cares and worries. Tho use of
stimulants or narcotics by nervous women has the same
result as the ur,o of alcohol by men. It only dulls and
deadens tho nerves for a time.
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription cures nervousness by
curing tho womauly diseases which cause it. It is a true
tonic and nervine, because it nourishes tho nerves and
strengthens tho body. There is no alcohol in "Favorite
Prescription," and it is entirely free from opium, cocaine
and all other narcotics. Weak, nervous, overworked, run
down women will find new health and strength from the use
of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription.
" It affords me great pleasure to bo able to say a few words in regard
to the merits of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription and I113 'Golden
Medical Discovery, " writes Sirs. Flora Am, of Dallas, Jacknoa Co.,
Mo. " I was tempted to try these medicines after seeing the effect upon
uiy mother. At an early age of married life I was greatly bothered
with painful periods, al;o a troublesome drain vhich rendered inc very
weak and nufit for work of any kiud. I became so thin there was noth
ing left of rae but 8kiu and bone. Mv husband became alarmed nnd
bottle of ' Favorite Prescription.' After he saw the wonderful effects of that one
he got me two more, and after I had used thocc up there was no more pain, and 1 began
to gain in flesh very rapidly. When I was out driving with inv mother the horse took
frurht and raa awav. 3Iv mother trot badlv hurt. Later on liinvl.rie.ut cr.t in mi r.i,r.
died. After her death was so ttenvits I sometimes thought I could not livs from one dr. v until the
next ,- would get so faint I thought I would die. I had awful paitui lu ay back aud head;' wan dizzy
all the time; could not sleep at night, and the bast noise wouli almost scare me to death. Our
doctor tried to cure me but tailed. So one day I sat down and wrote to Dr. Pierce, stating my case
ns clearly as I could. I received a prompt rcplv from him, and I bottcht three bottles of 'Favorite
Prescription,' three of 'Golden Medical Discovery, ' and one bottle ofDr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets.
You maybe sure after I took that I began to feef like a new person. I began to eat once more, and
now, I cannot say positively but I believe, I weigh twice as much as I did then, and can do all of my
work. I thittk I owe all praise to Dr. Pierce and his wonderful curative medicines."
What Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription did for Mrs. Arn, it has done for thousands
of other women. From weak women, reduced in flesh until they were only "skin and
bone," it has changed them to strong women, whose gain in healthy flesh speaks for the
soundness of their cure and their restoration to perfect health. Sometimes a cynical per
son will say a woman's ailments arc just imaginary. There's nothing imaginary about
the loss of flesh which so often accompanies nervousness and womanly diseases. " Isror is
there anything imaginary about tho cures effected by "Favorite Prescription," cures that
can be figured up in ounces and pounds.
"In the fall of lSo7, I was troubled with nervousness, headache, heart trouble aud female weak
ness," writes Miss Blanche JI. Bracey, of Sala, Oswego County, N. V. " Last summer I wrote you
aud yon advised rue to try your ' Favorite Prescription and ' Golden Medical Discovery.' I did so,
and "I began to improve rapidly. Continued taking the medicine, half-a-dozen each of 'Favotile
Prescription and 'Golden Medical Discovery,' for the space of four or five months, aud in less
than a year had regained my former health. You have my heartfelt thanks for what your remedies
have done for me. I am in excellent health now, but am still using your ' I'leasaut Pellets. ' "
