plcd. "There Isn't a whole bone In my
body except my neck," he told the
commission, In response to n question
from Mr. Darrow ns to whether or not
he had ever been hurt In the mines.
One of his eyes Is gone, his left leg is
stiffened, his right nrm crooked, and a
number ot his ribs bent and twisted
from fincturcs. Once his skull was
fractured and another time he lccclved
a, 3ash on the head which required
fourteen stitches to close.
Ten years ugo he was caught under
a fall of rock and so badly ciuehed that
he was In a hospital two yeais. When
ho came out, his fellow workmen sub
set Ibed a puiso of $167 to help support
him until he could discard his crutches
and go to woik. The money was col
lected at the company's office, the
woikmen having authorized the pay
master to keep the amount of their
subscriptions out of their pay. Super
intendent Smith added $50 to the fund,
foil went to get the money, but the
company would give him only ?J". The

Ills family consisted of hlmlt and

four small children of his own, and a
little girl whom he adopted when she

demand was made on him for it. Knily
on the morning of the sixth day, befoie
iho family was out of bed. Sheiiff
Jacobs and ills deputies eame to the
house and oidcied them out. Coll did
not expect an eviction, thinking, as he
put it, that the notice was "only a
bluff." lie pleaded with the sheiiff
not to tuin him out, as his wite was 111
of bionchitls and his niothei -in-law
unable to move. The .sheriff said he
was sorry, but he had to do his duty.
Coll pleaded with him to give him
until the next day, that he might have
time to get another house nnd nivc
his sick wife and mothei -in-law. ," It
was Impossible to get another house In
.Teddo, as the company q ned them all,
and he did not want to put the neigh
bors under the ban of the company's
displeasure by permitting them to take
him In. At all events, theie was a
old, drizzling rain falling, and if the
two invalid women weio foiced out in

deputies carried the old woman 0111 of

and went Into the stieet, wheie .she
spent a couple of houis packing her
household goods in boxes and barrels
to have them fiom the tain. Coll hur

Oenoial Counsel David Wilcox, of
the Dotawnie and Hudson company,
nnd General Counsel J. W. Browncll,
of the Erie company, were present yes
teiday, but took no hand In the pio
ceedlngs. Mr. Wolvoiton, who is the
only out-of-town company lawyer at
tending all the sessions, had nothing
whatever to say. Mr. Gowan, of the
Lehigh Valley company, the only other
out-of-town company counsel present,
contented himself with cross-examining
ono witness tiom a Lehigh Valley
colliery at Hazleton.
At the opening of the morning ses
sion Attorney H. C. Itejnolds made
announcement of the death of Dr.
Illce, one of the Independent operatois,
and Judge "Giay spoke the regrets of
the commission at the sad news.
The day up to 3 30 was consumed
with an examination of moie witnesses
regarding conditions at the Markle &
Co. collieries. In the last hour ten
witnesses were put on the stand to
testlfv legaidlng alleged discrimina
tion against union men bv the Deli
w.up and Hudson and Pennsylvania
The Hist witness was Nell McMon-
igle. Ills testimony was to the effect
that when working by the day for
Mai kle & Co. he would be given a
place wheie he could load sixteen or
eighteen cms a day, but when woiK
ing by contract, he could only get out
thiee or four cais a day. He also told
of having been seiiously hurt a num
ber of times and that he nevei saw a
mine inspector In the mine.
His Day's Pay.
V D. Gallaghei, a .Muikle & Co.
miner liom Jeddo, told that since the
close of the stilke he has been able
to earn only 60 or 70 cents a day. Be
foie the stilke ho and the other men
hi his vein, which Is vety thin and
"ditty," woiked as company miners,
leeeiving ii.27 a day besides free pow
der, oil and cotton. Since the strike
the company has done away with the
"day's pay" or company miner, and
compelled the men to tnke the places
under contiact or nothing at all. He
can cut only four cats of co.l with a
keg of powder and eight c.irji a week
Is his best product.
Judge Giav at this juncture asked
how' much a keg of powder was woith
Iii the open maiket.
Mi. Crawfoid leplled that It was
$1.".". Attorney John J. Shea, liom the
mineis' table said "The gentlemen
about ine heic say it can be bought
for 90 cents."
Judge Giay lemaiked that he could
see how it was a good thing to have
the powder pui chased and dlsttlbuted
by the company, ptovidiug the com
pany sold it at a fair pi Ice.
Andiew Hannick. a Jeddo laboier,
told of having been evicted and ie
fused re-employment by Maikle & Co.
He supposed it wns because he advised
his fellow Hungarians not to sign a
paper authoiizlng the company to stop
state bills out of their wages. He also
testified that he had woiked four jeuis
at Jeddo and never saw the mine in
spector. Mike Kobsh, a Hazleton laboier tes
tified he never saw a mine inspector in
the mine. In answer to a question by
Mr. Hcynolds, he admitted ho would
not know the inspoctoi It he saw him.

simply to the effect that he was ic

elicited the fact thnl this collleiy .stau

It was necessary to cut twelve cars of
