An Interesting Story.
Uo J, V. IIupsIc, rector or St.
Clobi'M's ('hutch at JInx.luton, wnn one
of tho afternoon witnesses and told an
Interesting' story of conditions In the
Hazleton region, lie was cross-examined
by Attorney John T, Lontihun on
the tieatment accorded non-union men
end strike violence gencially. The wit
ness contended that there was eiy
llltle disorder In Ilav.lcton during the
rtrlke, and what little occurred was
grossly esnjrwerated In the nowspupets.
Attorneys Harrow, McCarthy and
.lames U I.enalum did the examining
for the ndncrs' side. I'lesldcnt Mitch
ell, sitting- eonvenleat to the lawyers,
coached them constantly and twice,
with permission of the commission,
made explanations of mutters under
discussion, upon which he was more
competent to speak than cither the
witnesses or the attorneys.
Mrs. Chirk, wife of Commissioner
Clark, and Mrs. George Fowler, daugh
ter of ex-Superlnlendent Garret Bogerl
of the Delaware, 7-,acknwanna and
Western company, were among tho
ladles who watched tho proceedings
during the morning.
An amusing Incident took place to
wards the close of the afternoon ses
sion. Andrew Mattl, a Slav, who Is one
of the board members In the Hazleton
district, was on the stand In the morn
ing and told of having been engaged by
a "boss" of Coxc Bros. & Co. to import
in n from the old country. K was
noticed by the miners' attorneys that
the commission -was apparently very
much Interested in this matter, and
when they gol to talking It over during
the noon recess came to the conclusion
to give the commission some more of it.
Accordingly, Mattl was recalled and
led by Urstlons from Mr. narrow, lold
all the details ot the Importations, In
cluding how he was paid money by tho
mine boss to perform this work. Tho
commissioners were listening eagerly
to the recital and asking quite a few
Miiestlons. Suddenly Judge Gray said:
"Fly the way, when did this happen?"
Tlio whole assemblage, commissioners,
miners' representatives and nil fairly
roared with laughter when the witness
answered, "Seventeen years ago."
First Witness.
Mattl was the first witness of the
day. lie was called to the stand by
.Mr. Durrow immediately upon the open
ing of tlio morning session. lie wan a
former miner at the Prospect colliery
of Coxe Cros. Co., and holds the po
sition of district vice president of tho
union. He told of being discriminated
against because of being prominent in
the union and how he lost a good Job
for the name reason. lie was earning
$10 a week, lie said, and this was as
high as any other man at the mine. Ho
, nfwer had more than .$20 together at one
time that lie could call his own, al
though he worked every day he was
given opportunity to work.
When asked If he knew anything
about operators bringing his country
, men, Slavonians, here to work In the
mines, lie said he, himself, had brought
many of them over at the behest of the
mine boss.
Like the witness of the day before,
Matti told that he never saw the jniine
inspector in his "brenst" but once and
then ho was being esco'rted by the mine
Commissioner Watkins asked what
the purpose was of the testimony re
garding the mine inspector. Mr. Dar
row called on Mr. Mitchell to explain.
Mr. Mitchell stated that they wanted
to show that the mine inspector never
goes on his rounds unless accompanied
by a mine boss and because of the boss
biing along the attention of the inspec
tor instead of being directed is diverted
from bad conditions, and besides, when
the boss Is standing by the miners do
not dare to make complaints.
Judge Gray wanted to know if it was
not neci'Ssniy to have s'omo one go
about with the inspector as a guide.
Attorney McCarthy explained that a
good experienced miner, such an an In
spector ought Jo be. dues not need a
guide. He can follow the map or even
find his way about by following the air
General Wilson, addressing Mr. Mc
Carthy, asked If a mine bo.-x who him
self had been a miner, would lie so lack
ing In love for his fellow man that he
would intentionally expose him to dan
ger by diverting tho attention of the
Inspector fiom dangerous condition''.
Mr. McCarthy answered In the alllrm
utlve and then explained that the- mine
boss is lesponslble for bad conditions
and can be counted upon to hide his
own derelictions.
Reynolds Protests.
Attorney Huynnlds, of counsel for the
Independent operators, ptotested against
further Intiulty concerning the Inspect
ors. It Is uurcasonabU, he argued, that
,i company is not just as desirous of tin
inspector doing his duty as the em
ployes possibly could be, because in pio
lectiug the miners ho Is also protect
ing tho company's propetty. At nil
events, Mr. Ueynolds said, It was not init
io allow tho reputations of tlio inspect
ors to be attacked when they nro not
here to defend themselves.
Judge Gray said that anything throw
ing light on tho conditions into which
the commission is Inquiring, Is relevant
t-'stlmuny, lie would bo pleased, hn
said, to have thu Inspectors tome before
the commission nnd tell their story. in Wilkes-U
Mr. Mitchell said It was not tho pur-1 .lackson Anspacli,
pose of tlie miners to assail tho In
spectors or the foremen. They mo vic
tims of niivliontuents. The purpose Is
to show that the miners do not dare to
make camplnluts to the Inspectors,
Attorney Ueynolds pointed out the
fact thnt In every dlatilnl the mine In
spector maintains nu ofliee where min
ers ran wait on him.
Attorney Torrey called attention to
thu Gamer act still pending for tho
election of mine Inspectors by the peo
ple, nnd told that It was passed ut tho
Instance of tho inlueis. Judge Gray ex
pressed surprise to learn that the min
ers fnvorul a law permitting till tho
pt'oplh to elect Inspector.
After fcome explanations were inadn
as to tho old and new ways of electing
Inspectors, the cross-examination of
Mattl was proceeded with. About the
only fuvther thing of Interest adduced
from him was that ono of his griev
ances consisted of tho company loan
ing him money and keeping him in
debt. "Von didn't have to take It, did
you?" usked Judge Gray. The witness
udmltted that ho didn't.
John T. Sttunnix, of Driftoii, mi old,
employe of f'oxu tiro. & Co., was thu
next M'ltuess. He told that his wages
ranged from J80 tor two weeks to JIB
less than nothing. This last condition,
It wnt explained, tesullcd from sub
tractions for powder, elc, while ho. was
(tilting coal which could not ho loaded
within tho same two weeks that It was
Itathor n Homebody.
He worked twenty-two yeuis for the
Coxes, nnd never In that tlmo was out
of Luzerne county except to take a run
down to Allentown during the strike.
Hu war nover able to save any money.
Ho told thnt It was his Invai table ex
perience that whfti he went to a boss
to make a complaint ho wns told thnt
If he didn't like It he could get mil.
rractlcally similar testimony was
given by John Parrel I, an Italian, who
came from tho Alps, and who has been
working for Coxe ltros. A Co. for
twelve years. lie Is vice-president of
tho local and Is one of the men turned
out of the company houses rind refused
re-omployinonl at the end of the sliike
because of ids connection with the
lie wa told It was because lie
"chased men from work" that he would
not be re-employed.
Judgo Gray asked him If It was true
he hud chased men awny from work.
The witness said he hud only "udvlsed"
them to stay home.
Just before the strike, the witness
said, ho had a good place and could
earn $1.90 a day if hp worked hard. He
started saving ntlo something "for
a rainy day," ItMbflj, and at the begin
ning of tlio Inst strike hnd amassed ?G0.
Ill telling of tho extent to which
dockage Is carried, he stated that' once
he sent out fourteen cars nnd they
were condemned. Ho had to "pick"
them over and was docked 25 per cent,
at that. President Crawford, of the
People's C'oal company, asked the wit
ness how many cars he filled from the
fourteen when they were "picked" over.
The witness said twelve. "Then you
pent out two cars of dirt?" said Mr.
Crawford. The witness did not reply.
Timothy Maloney, secretary of the
Oneida local, was tho next witness. He
is also one of the men turned out of a
company houso and refused re-employment,
lie was working as a footman
at the Oneida for ten years prior to the
strike and earned ?9 a week. His father
had to quit work In the mines three
years ago on account of asthma.
The witness identified a notice posted
by Coxe Bros. & Co., In the latter part
of last September, in which warning
was given that discharge would bo the
penalty on any employe who "by in
timidation or moral persuasion" at
tempted to induce any other employe to
join or leave any society or union, or
refused to work with any fellow-laborer
because of his not being a member of
any society or union. The notice was
offered In evidence.
Xenahan Takes a Hand.
The witness was then cross-examined
by John T. Lenahan, representing the
non-union men. Mr. Lcnahan brought
out the fact that employes ot the Coxe
Uros. & Co. railroad had been attacked
by mobs during the strike, and then
asked' the witness l he did not lead
these mobs on two different occasions.
Tlio witness denied the allegation con
tained in Mr. Lenahan's question, and
further denied having participated in
any strike violence.
Attorney II. J. Reynolds brought
from the witness an ndmlsslon that ho
left his job two days before the strike
was declared, anil that when he was
dispossessed of the company house ho
was owing four months' rent. Mr. Dar
iow brought out that the notice order
ing him to quit the company house con
tained no demand for or mention of
rent, and that it was not Infrequent
for him to be in arrears.
Hugh Boyle, a miner's laboifir. of
Nuiemborg, employed by Coxe Bros. &
Co., conoborated tlio preceding wit
nesses on matters peitalning to general
conditions and told, besides, that as a
laborer fur a iniin-r lie was paid $1.94,
while as a laborer for the company ho
would be paid only $1.22.
The testimony of the morning session
closed with this witness.
The (list witness of the afternoon was
W H. Dettrey, board member or tho
Hazs-lton district, who was on the stand
the day before. Ho was iccalled to bo
examined more pnrticulaily regarding
the strike at the Com- Bro. Co. col
lieries. When l':e strike at these collieties
ended last week It win, agreed that the
company should not re-employ men
who had btcu displaced by the inlro
duct Inn of machinery or those under
Indictment or arrest for crime. The list
of men the company put In those two
excepted classes numbered iv.'j. Tho
witness testllled that he carefully ex
amined the list and found only
eighteen who were ever under hi rest
for crime, it was not until tho com
pany cut the 1M down to ICfl Unit thu
strike was finally ended
The witness was then cross-examined
by John T, l.tnahan. Mr. Lcnnhun
brought nut the fact that tliPto Is n
Central i.ubor union in Htueltou, with
which the miners are allied; that Its
'official oignii Is the Trades Cnionlsti

He Did 5Tot Know.
Tho wltne-s avetred that he did not
know that there were many sti liars
engaged In violence who were inn ar
rested, or that twenty-tlvu of tho strik
er from tho Coxo mines worn urresld
of liock Ulcu. a

and twenty-four hours at ti utruteh

shifts. This condition prevails all
through that legion, .Sometimes ho can
get off for a few hours to go to church,
The pay of a llreman Is $1.57 a day. A

III ivspousu to Mr, Dickson's dliec'l
For tlio last six years the witness has
been trying to pay H'OO on a home ho
puiehused, He has succeeded In paying
ulf about $700 of the debt,
Commissioner Wutklns put questions
to tho witness which brought out the
fact that two other men work with him,
Thu witness denied, however, that
olther of these men could "spell him

rlel's Itomun Catholic church, and one
of the deans of the Scranton diocese.
was then called to the stand. j Ho was
vxamlned'by Mr. Darrow. He told that
he has spent IiIb whole life with tho
exception of a few years In the trial re
gions. His parish Is composed of 700
families and ninety per cent, of the
men nio mine workers. Ho Is frequent
ly at the homes of miners and knows
their conditions und mode ot living.
Tho Fourth legislative rllstrlu.1, of
which Jlnzellon Is a part, contains 3,000
tolnl ntalnluerr, one half of them adult
men. Kvety member of his congregn
llon look the total abstinence pledge the
first Sunday of tho strike. Drinking
was at his minimum ntnong his people
during the strike, and he only saw llvu
drunken men In Huzeltoti during the
five months the strike wa on.
Conditions among the mlnorc of the
Hnzelton region, he said, were truly de
plorable. They are baiely able to
He had been In other place!" where he
saw conditions, which, ho thought,
were deplorable, but no place he had
ever been could compare with Hazelton
In this respect,
Can't Be Called Homes.
The homes can not properly be called
homes. They ure habitations. The
miners, he said, arc frugal, conserva
tive men, reasonable In their demands
and that they ure u God-fearing peo
ple Is attested by the fact that In tho
city of Hazelton there nro eight Bo
man Catholic, churches, to say nothing
of the churches of other faiths, all of
them are crowded every Sunday.
He has found that In sickness the
miner Is scarcely able to pay for at
tendance and medicine and a death
means u long-standing debt. One fru
gal German miner told the witness that
he wns six years paying off a debt of
$i)00 contracted for n funeral.
The witness told, Incidentally, that G.
U. Mnrkle & Co. maintain a burial fund
for their employes. He commended thu
company for this very humune action.
Because of the poor wages received
by the head of the household it Is Im
possible to keep the families together.
Girls leave home as soon as they are
able to work, some of them going to
other places to live ns servants, and
ninny of them going Into the silk mills
nnd other like Industries. The boys go
Into the breaker us boon ns they are able
to toddle out of the house. The average
age at which miners' children leave
school, the witness said, is a little over
eleven years.
During the last strike there was great
privation among the miners, but ho
knew of not a single instance where a
striker wanted to return to work until
the union decreed he should return. Out
of fifty or sixty men ot whom he made
inquiries, he found only three who had
money saved. One It In Scot
land, another made It in Australia, and
the third inherited it.
He examined the list of taxables in
the city of Hnzleton and found that
out of 1.723 persons on the list there
were only eighty miners assessed as
owners of homes. Seventy per cent, of
the population of Hazleton, he said. Is
made up ot miners and their depend
ents. There was no considerable feeling or
excitement in Haslefon during tho
strike, the witness asserted. It was, on
the contrary, remarkably quiet. Ho had
protested as a citizen, In a letter to tlio
public, against tho stories sent out re
garding disorder In his city. The news
paper reports were grossuy exagger
ated. One morning he read an account
of a man being attacked by strikers on
the streets of Hazleton. Alongside of It
was a story to tlio effect that the chief
of police declared there were fewer ar
rests and less drunkenness in .Hazleton
during that month than in any month
of the preceding year.
Considered Conservative.
He did not know any of the mino
workers' olllcials personally except Dis
trict President Duffy and he consldeied
him a very conservative man.
The sending of the mllltaiy to Hazle
ton, the witness declared, was wholly
uncalled for. Their ai rival was a big
surprise to the people of the town.
There had been no call for them by the
citizens and absolutely no occasion for
their coming.
On cross-examination, Mr. Lenahnn
related a series of strike disorders,
which occurred in and about Hazleton,
including the dynamiting' of the home
of a non-union man; an attack on a
car conveying non-union men thinugb
Hazleton, and the mobbing of the crew
of a railroad train on the Coxe Bios. &
Co. road at Drifton, and asked the wit
ness if he had heard of these things.
The witness hail heard of some ot
them through the newspapers. Some of
the reports he knew were exaggerated.
Others he knew something about, but
was ready to believe the newspaper
reports of them were exaggerated.
The witness admitted he know that
Sheriff Jacobs, of Luzerne counts', re
sides In Hazleton and that It was ho
who called out the Hoops, but denied
all knowledge of the alleged ruct that
it was after a night of tumult (n and
around Hazleton, with mobs menacing
miners and woikmeii at Hazlu and
Poster, that the sheriff made tlio requi
sition on the governor.
Commb-sloner Chirk asked if condi
tions changed after the troops arrived.
Father Hassle answered that thu same
peace and quiet continued, and the
people ntul soldleis were tlio best ot
In conclusion, Father Husslo ex
piessed the opinion thnt lack of In
telligence and want of enmity on tho
part of the mine bosses, who have the
Immediate direction of the work of the
men, are responsible mainly for the ills
of which the miners complnin.
John Price, a check docking boss nt
No. 0 breaker of the Susquehanna Coal
company, Nantlcoke, testified that pi lor
to tlie time tut- miners put on a check
welghman the dockage was from eight
to ten per cent. Just befnie the last
strike the dockage wns i educed to one
nnd one-half per cent.
Check Docking' Boss.
The witness further told that at tho
close of the last strike the company dis
charged tho check docking boss at No, 7

When a committee asked tho superin
tendent why tho check docking buss
was dispensed with, hn answuted that

Major Warren got him to admit on
