there are but few men who have held this
office, however poor they may have been
when they took charge of it, who have
not become nch. There is certainl come
advantage to be gained by the holding of
the position of State Treasurer, unknown
to the public, but which readily accounts.
for the disgraceful scramble, and for the
political and . moral debauchery which
the people of this State seem to be doom

It Wino upon their representative, the

good people-of Pennsylvania, I call upon
the members of the Legislature, without
distinction of party, to rise, above the
murkyness of the polluted atmosphere of
the past, to thotrue dignity or manhood
and exalted patriotism, and purify the
election of Treasurer an well as that of
. .
every other officer within this Common
wealth, and punish every one who tam
per with the purity of elections, what
ever may be his position or pretensions.
-And then every one who shall have per
formed his whole duty to sustain the
true Interests of the State and to main

may return unpolluted and with a clear

thejoyful exclamation of "well done

For many years the general nppropria

I here repeat my suggestions oiliest year
on this subject. "The Governor has

our mining system worse than that of
any other country, whilst our mining
Intereits are unequalled by those of any
other part of the world.
The most appalling accidents on record
have been traced to unsafe methods of
ventilation, and more especially to the
employment of furnaces at or near the
bottom of the shafts. Where the funiace

a wooden chimney, it seems almost cer
tain that, sooner or later, by the inevita.

the frame work, it must Ignite from the
ascending sparks or from the beat of the
furnace, and a conflagration ensue. To
guard against this, it should be made ob
ligatory, If the ventilating furnace be
still allowed., to build the chimes's!, the
sides of the shaft, and the building. stir
rounding it at the top, with incombusti.
ble materials. But even this precaution
is not' a sure safeguard, for the fire is Its
hie, at env moment, to communicate'';
with the onto damp" or other gaseous
vapors, that, despite of all known means I
of prevention, will generate In the best I
regulated mines. The propriety of dila
perusing entirely, therefore, with the fur
mum, has received the serious considers-'
tion of scientiflo miners and eugineers,
and the fan, In many Instances, his been
substituted, which being worked by ma
chinery at the surface, produces a more I
constant current of air, dispenses It more I
freely through the gangways and cham
bers; and, in all respects, accomplishes
the object desired with better effect; and
when the shafts and surface buildings
are fireproof, without the possibility of
danger. This system of ventilation, with
advantages so palpably obviaus, will, no
doubt, be universally adopted.- Bat the
very nature of mining operations sue-
Jects them to other dangers. The walls
and rooting of the mines, from the effects
of blasting and other causes, frequently '
give way and all up the gangways so as
to render them Impassible, as in the more
recent' calamity at Stockton, which re
sulted in the death of ten persons. Bence
it is absolutely necessary, and should be
imperatively demanded, that every mine
should have more than a single avenue
of ingress and egress. Whether as re
gards fire, er any other source of danger
to which the. miner is exposed, this teas
surest promise of safety. Whatever aye.
tem of ventilation may be approved, or
safety lamp adopted, the Millis of escape
from the mines, when danger occurs,
will depend very materially upon .the
provision made for the silt of the miner.
The teat method otrairistructing, ven
tilating and working the mines, should
be onhesnatingly adopted; and the sys
tem adopted rigid/3 , enforced. The in
quiry. therefore, into the causes which
produced this shocking catastrophe—the
various theories that bays been promul
gated concerning it. the remedies for the
prevention of similar occurrences here
after, the construction and ventilation of
collieries, and the modes of conducting
, their operations no that th e operatives
I I may prosecute their labor without im
perilling their lives, are proper subjects
for legislative consideration.
' Such laws as you may enact can most
certainly be enforced by competent in
spectors in the mining districts, who
'timid be chosen with strict regard to
character, integrity, capability and act
entities knowledge; and whose duties
should be so specifically defined 'that
they cannot be mbundsi stood.
I, therefore, most respectfully and
earnestly recommend that this whole
*object receive the attention its-impor
tance demands, and that a law be passed,
so general in its enarocter and so strin
gent in its provisions, that the people of
this Commonwealth will never again be
appalled by a 'eternity, within her Limits,
so sad an that of Avondale.

April 18, 1887, Mahlon H. Dickinson
Esq., of Philadelphia, was appointed
"to visit, for philanthropic purposes, the
prisons and almahouses in the various
counties of the Commonwealth." His

Information, and will be found highly
interesting., and worthy of mature con

some of our county miaow have been
constructed and are being conducted
with strict regard to the proper objects
of punishment, others are utterly unfit
for any such purposes, and are a tilsgrace
and reproach to a civilised age and a
Christian people. Tho Commissioner, in
regard to some of these, describes them
.as being nnsaferwhere prisonem could
not be held unless loaded with chains,
where the sexes were not separated,
where there was no discipline, or any
effort made towards the moral or relig

buildings totally unlit for the purposes
of a prison; and where the prisoners be

are represented as contracted dungeons,
Into which not a ray of stnishine or a
draft of pure air can enter, and in which
a human being could not possibly live
through a lengthy term of sentence.
And in still others, In consequence of
the want of proper accommodations, all
classes of criminals, from the moat bar;
dened and aged to the youth of tender
years, are permitted to.ciongregate, and
Indulge In card playing, profanity, and
almost every species of Immorality and

Theta is another subject also of Na

because It directly affects the ihdostrial
operations In which Pennsylvania in so

now being made by those interested in

train from alluding to the fact, that for

barbarities and atrocities which will
forever be a foul blot upon the history'of Spain. We should indeed be unmind- I
nal of humanity and of the greatness of
our natiobality, it we omitted to notice
this patriotic effort by the Cubans to
throw off the Spaniah yoke, and like our
own ancestors, "to assume among the
powers of the earth the separate and
equal station to which nature and na
ture's God entitle them." The new or
ganization has abolished slavery, and
attested its right not only to our *yams;
thy, but to recognition, by the vigor and
determination of its resistance to the op-
Drentions of the mother country: Almost

spirit prevailed not only towards Poland,

her movements to regain her long lost
nationality. These - countries had the
I unmistakable sympathy of the people of
the United States, and our public men,
In every branch of the goverument, nev

In the case of the French revolution, the
statesmen of America gave every encour

they " are imltating the 'example

Iludcnibled Security.
Many persons, haying at this time more
or less surplus funds, are seeking informs
tion as to the hut investment. Railroad
bonds, if well secured, are generally
considered the best form of security now
in the market. The Chicago, Danville
b Vincennes Railroad, whose First
Mortgage bonds are advertised In another
column, seems to be the one which in
vites the closest examinsUon, and grows
in favor upon intimate acquaintance. In
the • that place, the name of the General
Agents for negotiating the Bonds is a
strong recommendation. For forty years
in Boston and twenty years in New
York, W. Bailey Lang & Co., have been
the agents of a number of the moat ex
tensive and noted railroad Iron makers in
the world. In that eepacity they 'hive
acqnired en Intimate and practical' so
qnaintance with every part of railroad
building and requirements, which is I n
in enabling them to judge beyond •
question of the character and market
value of any railroad work. They have;
diming all these years of successful trade,
been honorably distinguished as a house
of sagacity, energy and integrity, and
their unqualified endorsement of a rail
road enterprise means that there Is no
sham in , it from top to bottom. • •
