DISTRICT CONVENTION OF THE
Matters That Will Como Up for Con
sideration at Next Week's Moetlng
In Wllkes-TJarre latest Movo of
tho Wabash In Dotting Control of
tho West Virginia Central and
Pittsburg Railroads Is Causing
Much Talk In tho Railroad World.
Lackawanna Board for Today.
Badges for tho delegates to next
week's ftctnl-niimtnl convention of Dis
trict No. 1, United Mine Workers ot
Amoilcu, wilt consist ot u mcOnllion
.portrait of National President John
Mitchell, surrounded by the wordsi
"An Eight-Hour Day for Anthracite
Miners." The badges were received hero
yesterday by District President T. D.
Tho convention will have tho eight
hour dny as Its chief subject for con
sideration. What action will be taken,
none of the otllcers-wlll attempt to say.
President Xlcholls stated yesterday lie
Mould not bo surprised If the conven
tion contented Itself with n discussion
of tho subject mid then refer It to the
national convention, which opens In
Indianapolis the following week.
Another liroiulnent member of tho
mine workers, who did not care to bo
quoted, said he believed the district
convention would decide on a policy to
be pursued In establishing the eight
hour day and bringing about tho other
reforms, mich as paying by weight In
stead of by the car, and arranging to
have stationary engineers and Ilremen
included in the membership of tho
minors' locals, Instead of In their own
Neither of tho two other district con
ventions took any action in these mat
ters, us far as has been reported. It is
understood they decided to let the First
district, vlilch Is ns big as the other
two combined, take the lead. It may
be that next week's convention and the
national convention will be able to nr
raugo the plans for carrying out tho
ends in view, but if they are not, a con
vention of the three districts will be
When the mine workers last dealt
with John Plerpont Morgan, they were
told that the mutter of entering Into a
formal conference with them this spring
depended on the showing the organ
ization would make In the Interim, n
tho matter of preventing the pestifer
ous small strike and otherwise showing
that it was actually representative of
all the employes. At least, such was
given out at the time of tho interview.
The mine workers' ollicers feel that
the organization has made a splendid
showing in this regard and that com
paratively little, if any, trouble w'll be
experienced In having a formal confer
ence between representatives of the two
Xatest Move of Wabash.
Tho purchase of tho AVest Virginia
Central and Pittsburg railroads by in
terests friendly to the Wabash means
more than nn invasion of the soft co.il
Holds of Ohio. West Virginia and Vir
ginia, according to the Philadelphia
Ledger. It means that Oeorge Gould
is planning to gain entrance to tho
hard coal region of Pennsylvania. To
secure theso ends possession of the
West Virginia Central places him In a
most strategic position.
Tills purchase gives tho Wabash
people a system of roads from Zanes
illle, O., to ii Junction with the West
Virginia Central. This latter road in
cluding the Piedmont and Cumberland
load, which it leases, extends north
west to Cumberland, Mil.
Northwest of this terminal, but a
short distance, Is .Shippensburg, Pa., to
which point, by building n short con
necting line, tho West Virginia Central
could connect not only with the West
ern Maryland but with the Philadel
phia and Heading. Poth these latter
roads arc practically Independent.
Hy tho, Western Maryland an outlet
would bo secured tit Haltlmoro, and
over the Heading not only Philiidalphla
but New York city could be reached.
A road from Pittsburg to Shlppeiis
burg is not improbable, as recent sur
veys have been made along that route.
This of course, being a good plan will
likely meet opposition from the Penn
sylvania or Morgun-Vunderbiit inter
ests. The Now York Mall and Express
commenting on tho purchase says:
"The purchase of this road will give
the Wabash a lino to tidewater. It
is admitted that this Is a condition
which Gould interests have been striv
ing for. However, they will not use
the Southern port against New York,
it Is quite likely that a. connection
from Buffalo to this city will bo made
by the Wabash through purchase of a
stock Interest In either the Lacka
wanna or ISIe,"
By securing this outlet to the At
lantic the Wabash Is In a position to
become a traus-Atluntie road, us it
is likely to soon gain a Western con
nection to the Pacific by an alliance
with Senator Clark's new road. Here
tofore, It hos been hemmed In between
tho two coasts with no outlet to either.
A despatch fiom Cumberland, Mil.,
quotes Colonel Thomas B. Davis,
brother of President Davis of the West
Virginia Central us saying that the
purchnco was made in behalf of the
Wulmsh by Edwin L. Fuller, a Now
York stock broker, and that tho price
paid was largely In excess of the re
ported figure, 17,000,000.
It was though that the Edwin U
Fuller mentioned In the despatch was
Edward L. Fuller of this city, hut at
hl3 ofllce it was stated this Is not so.

Now York, Jan. 10. Tho condition of
neglect and professionalism into which
tho stock market Is falling became
more evident today, not only In the
smaller volume of the trading but In
the eccentric fluctuations of prices.
Tho net changes in tho nfujorlty of tho
list will bo found narrow, but tho day's
range was considerable nnd tho
changes constant and various. The
rule of operation has fallen back to
the professional room trader's basis of
selling on advances and buying on
slight recessions. The speculation con
tinued quite nctlvo In sugar innd Man
hattan, but oven In those the charac
teristics wore professional. Generally
speaking tho characteristic ot tho mar
ket was dullness duo to tho lack of
outside Interest and tho discontinuance,
ot operations by tho larger specula
tive interest. .The tone leaned towards
depression ns the lack of demand made
the mankct vulnerable to even light
selling pressure. The abandonment ot
the bull campaign In United States
steel and tho desire to await a better
defined status for the Northern Secur
ities company were general considera
tions detracting from speculative in
terest. The announcement of the sus
pension ot a trust and savings institu
tion In Cleveland was regarded as an
episode, unimportant In its Immediate
results, but with a rather sinister slg
nlflcancc in Its possible ulterior bear
ings. Tho suspension was associated
In the Wall street mind with tho diffi
culties of tho Everett-Moore syndicate,
which have been- a rather depressing
circumstance In the Wnll street back
ground for some time past. Tho feel
ing In favor ot conservatism In the ex
tension of both credits nnd speculative
ventures was strengthened by this
event. There hns been an extensive
speculation In Delaware and Hudson
on a confident assumption that the div
idend on the stock was to bo Increased,
This assumption was strengthened by
the action of the Now Jersey Central
directors In jumping their dividend
rate from 5 to S per cent. The action
of tho Delaware and Hudson directors
today In limiting the distribution of
last year's prollts to seven per cent,
to be disbursed quarterly, was there
fore a keen disappointment, as it rep
resented no bettor return than that of
last year. The stock was sold heavily,
causing a break of six points, with an
influence on the whole market. The
unchanged dividend on Louisville and
Nashville was also a disappointment,
though in much less degree. Total
sales fiGS.tOO shares.
The bond market was dull and rath
er irregular. Total sales per value $2,
Sir.,000. United States bonds were all un
changed on the last call.

Better mince meat than this cannot be made at borne.
It is as juicy, fruity, clean and much more economical.
We save you the weary chopping, boiling, seeding, peeling, miring.
Last year we sold ten million (10,000,000) packages.
Each package makes two large (or three small) pies.
