Full of Sugar.
"Of course, Mr. Havemeyer was full of
sugar naturally," said Mr. Terrell, of the
Sugar Trust, to the Senato Committee,
speaking of the occasion when Senator
Brice took an easy lesson in sugar
schedules from the rich refiner. Nothing
* improper was said, of course —they merely
talked sugar. Then Senator Smith of New
Jersey, came in and ho also got full of
sugar. In the course of a few days so
many Senators had taken to getting full of
sugar that even the Democratic majority
of the Finance Committee of the Senate
got sweet on the Sugar Trust. So great,
indeed, did the Senatorial interest in sugar
become that a number of Senators even
sought sugar investments in Wall street.
Thus we see that one man being full of
sugar was the cause ot fullness in many
others, and there would have been still
more saccharine deals no doubt, had it not
been that the walls of Mr. Terrell's room
had ears.
But to get full of sugar, it seems, is very
dangerous—even sweets to the sweet may
sour the stomach and sicken the whole
man. Senator Gorman has been seriously
ill for days, and for no reason, apparently,
except that he allowed himself to get full
on sugar, and now Senator iloPherson is
also reported ill, because he was filled up
with sugar without knowing it. Indeed,
the health and temper of the entire Senate
was affected by the chemical changes due
to overfullness ot sugar.
It is much to be regretted that on the
occasion when he met Senator Brice at
Mr. Terrell's room Mr. Havemeyer should
have been full of sugar, whether naturally
or unnaturally. It has turned to bile on
the stomachs of the august fathers of the
Senate, and we hear of Mr. Hale talking
about the mendicants of Louisiana and of
Mr. Cafferty resenting the epithet, while
the fiery Mills, we are told, "hurled back
in defiance the shafts of Mr. Hale and Mr.
Hoar." Even the angelic Senator Harris
loses his temper, and it is to be fear
ed that sweetness is no longer in the
hearts of Senators Vest and Jones. All
this sourness and bitterness is due to the
faot that when Mr. Havemeyer was full of
sugar many Senators allowed themselves
to get full also. —Phil'a Inquirer.
SKITATOR QUAY was the only Republi
can Senator who voted for the Democratic
sugar schedule, which passed the Senate
last week. He is reported to have ex
plained his vote to an inquirer by saying
that he voted in favor of protection to
sugar. Bat the fact is the schedule which
he thus supported decreased the protection
of the producers of raw sugar in this coun
try under the MoKinley act, while increas
ing the cost of sugar to the consumers of
the United States. The present law gives
the producers of sugar a protection of 2
cents, while the pending bill will give a
less proteotion it imposes the cost on
every pound of sugar that is to be con
nnmxl uk tkW ootttey. The plooa where
the proteotion is increased is on the Sugar
Trust's production. The McKinley act
gives the Trust half a cent of protection,
whioh every observer has seen to be ex
cessive, but the schedule for which our
Senator voted increases that margin to
from 55c to per hundred pounds,
which is a wholly gratuitous gift. More
over the sole purpose ot protection being
to stimulate the competition of domestic
industry, protection to a combination
which stifles domestic competition is a be
trayal of the purpose cf the protective
The Coal Strike.
iome years ago, when natural gas was
poured out of numberless wells in such
quantities that manufacturers used it with
reckless prodigality, a hope was entertain
ed that although the supply might cease
the lessons learned in its consumption
wonld not be lost. These lessons were
not of a very advanced kind; they simply
went to show that gaseous fuel was supe
rior to solid, that it was more manageable,
and gave better produots, but no lesson of
economy of fuel was taught. Manufac
turers went on in their usual way without
a thought for the future.
The last six weeks have been occupied
with occurrences whioh, grave in the so
oial aspect, have brought the fuel question
prominently forward in all its crudities.
A. strike among coal miners in fourteen
States and two Territories has been in pro
gress. The central western region, includ
ed in a general way in the quadrangle de
filed by Chioago, Birmingham, Pittsburg
and St. Louis, is the region most affected.
The coal on hand approaching exhaus
tion, 175,000 men on strike, deeds of vio
lence of frequent occurrence, the poor in
oitief paying three and four times the*usu
al price for a bucket of coal, were features
of the strike that made its seriousness
evident. Large numbers of the miners
are foreigners and of the most excitable
nature, and liable to be carried almost any
distance by their feelings.
The cause of the strike is oae which brings
into strong perspective the fuel ques
tion. The miners desire a uniform rate to
be established to be paid them for ooal as
mined. This rate is 75 cents a ton. In
some places the miners have received but
42 cents a ton in others 50 cents. Their
request seems far from exorbitant It is
clear that the prioe asked by them is but
little for the amount of combustible mat
ter represented by the long ton of coal.
So cheap a rate of extraction would imply
a very good condition of things for the
consumer. Bnt it is not altogether so.
When the miner is paid for the coal
which he has cut from the breast of his
working, the smallest part of the cost of
the coal is provided for. The ooal has to
go through preparation, more or less ex
pensive, before delivery to the consumer,
and it has to be transported from the mines
to the furnace and faotory. All this adds
greatly to its cost. An addition of twenty
five cents to the ton would mean far more
at the mine than it would two hundred
miles distant. To the miner it means an
increase of wages of fifty per cent; to the
distant consumer it would mean an in
crease in price of ten per cent or less.—

FIFTEEN member* of the Denver Con
tingent ot the Coxey army were drowned
in the Platte last Friday, by the finking of
one of their boats.
SEVESTY-OHB railroad companies operat
ing one fifth tho railway mileage of the
country went into the bands of receivers
last year. Hundreds of other corporations
engaged in mercantile or manufacturing
operations also became bankrupt. An en
ormous mass of capital is tied'up in these
concerns, and the of affecting their fi
nancial reorganization is seriously taxing
the wisdom and resources of the banking
end business community.
The Vice of Idleness.
There is perhaps no greater vice in this
world than idleness. According to a re
cent writer in the Arena there are in this
country twenty millions of workers,includ
ing the women, who put in long, servicee
ble days in onr homes; and the total wealth
produced annually by all classes of labor
ers, including professional men, is about
twenty billions each year, or SI,OOO for
each worker. This is the product after
deducting repairs and material. Now,
there are at least one million people, able
to work,who are wholly idle, and the wage
earners as a body are idle about one-tenth
of the working days in a year, which is
equivilent to two million* idle the whole
year round; which, added to the one mil*
lion absolutely idle, makes idleness cost
this country three million times SI,OOO, or
three billion a year. There are about ten
million more, mostly women, who spend
their time shopping and flirting, and in
what they call "pleasure," and who would
be infinitely happier it they had something
useful to do, of whose capabilities society
does not avail itself.
Idleness costs this country at the low
est possible estimate, three billions a year.
Another billion is spent uselessly for in
toxioating drink. Two billion more might
be produced were the energies wasted in
gambling and other fraudulent and useless
employments devoted to productive indus
We do a good deal of kicking about ava
rice, and the thirst for gold, but, my son it
is the desire for wealth that makes men
work, and it is work that produces the
good things wherewith life is made worth
living. To be sure the desire for money
causes men to do evil things—to lie, cheat,
rob and murder. But it also causes men
to study hard to become good physicians,
preachers, writers, lawyers, artists and me
chanics, and it nerves the arm of the day
laborer to pursue his toil. Why do people
want fameT Because, as a rule wealth fol
lows. He is a shallow and superficial rea
soner who attributes the woes of this
world to avarice, or a desire for gain.
Without that spur to human activities we
would be as languid and worthless as Hot
It is of course the desire for gain that
: causes corporations to grind their employes
But it is also that desire which causes
them to engage in productive enterprises.
It is the desire for gain that causes work
men to ignore the interests ot their fellow
wage-earners by taking theirjplaces when
they go on a strike. But it is the same
desire which causes all men to engage in
useful employment and fill the world with
good things.
Blot out of the human heart their thirst
for wealth—this selfish desire for gain,
which arlarge class of self-appointed proph
ets predict is leading this country to ruin,
and what incentive would there be to la
bort That self-love which creates a de
sire in a man to place himself and wife and
children beyond the reach of want, is what
makes him hustle. No matter in what a
man engages—whether it is a business
enterprise, editing a newspaper, practic
ing law or medicine, preaching the gospel,
or by day's labor, the measure of his abili
ty and usefulness is guaged by the amount
of money he can earn.
Idleness, as we have shown, is the great
est of all vices, and the penalty for it is
death. The Creator has so ordained mat
ters that, from the lowest organism to the
highest, exertion ia the price of life. And
in this fight for snbsistance mental ener
gies count far more than physical activit
ies. In the fierce competition caused by
this struggle for existenoe much strife is
created aad much injustice i« done. Many
men are forced into degrading drudgery,
and nearly all the lower animals are either
enslaved or slaughtered for food. It is the
way of all nature. The strong devour the
weak. "Tbo fig fioli vat tho ltHlo
and all life is a struggling, groaning mass.
There is but one remedy for it all, and
ttat is through education—such develop-
ment of the heart and brain as will inspire
men with love for every living creature,
and which will cause them to exert their
best energies for the happiness and wel
fare of all. To howl calamity and revolu
tion, and predict bloodshed and destruc
tion, is calculated only to brutalize and
degrade. It is love and enlightenment
that must finally redeem the world, and
not the soars and wounds of tooth and
claw.—Punxsutawney Spirit.
THE great electric light whioh was ex
hibited at the World's fair is to be placed
in a light house at Sandy Hook. It was
tried on Monday night and so intense and
far reaching was the light that places far
down tte Jersey coast were plainly visi
ble and it is claimed that it can be thrown
as far as Philadelphia. That light will
probably be useful at Sandy Hook but
where it is needed is at Washington to
throw some light on the sugar schednle
investigation, and by its rays guide the
ship of State off the rooks of Democratic
incompetency and surrender to the sugar
and other trust*. The Republican majori
ty in the next Congress will furnish the
crew and William McKinley or Thomas
B. Reed will be the ooromander.
Washington Notes.
On Thursday the debate in the Senate,
on the tariff bill was oontinued, Quay ob
jecting to the debate being limited, but
the only thing done during the day was to
fix the rate on oatmeal at 15 per cent.
There was a good deal of temper shown
fn the Senate during Friday's tariff debate.
Senator Harris was unusually crusty and
irascible. During a speech of Senator Cul
lim, the hot-headed old Tennesseean got
up and charged the former with filibuster
ing and delay. This made Mr. Cullom
very angry, and he retorted.
'■lf you will move to lay your internal
tariff bill on the table, I will agree to take
a vote now."
Mr. Ferrell of Cleveland, a member of
the Sugar Trust, was before the investi
gating oommittee, that day, but what his
evidence was is not known as the investig
ation is secret. It is not at all likely that
the "colored person in this sugar barrel"
will be discovered by the oommittee.
Monday, the Republicans had some fun
with the Democrats in the Senate, over the
collars and cuffs schedule. Senator Mur
phy, of New York, was conveniently ab
sent from the chamber, and did not hear
the sarcastic flings at the schedule which
he had framed. Other Demoorats pres
ent seemed to enjoy the performance,
among them Senator Mills, who could
view with complaisance the imposition of
nearly 100 per cent, duty upon collars and
cuffs as these artioles of attire are not
much in demand down in Texas.
Senator Piatt was in an unusually sar
castic and facetious mood. His text was
tariff reform, and the evolutions of that
policy since it went into the House in the
shape of the Wilson bill. He enumerated
the various surrenders of theories by the
Democrats, and paraphrasing the old saw
about scratching a Russian and finding a
Tartar, said, "Whenever you scartch a
protection amendment you find a Demo
The rapidity with which the cotton
schedule was disposed ot made the "Dis
mal Dolph," of Oregon, fairly howl with
envy. He wanted to know how New Eng
lang industries could be taken care of
while those of the Pacific slope were ruin
ed. He learned that, since it is apparent
that the bill is going through the Senate,
Republicans are using every endeavor to
get concession* for their districts. Assis
ted by New England Democrats, Senator
Aldrich and Senator Boar secured a now
cotton schedule which the former stated
was the most technical ever framed.
While the rates are lower than in the pre»
»nt law, the gradation of the duties is
mule so advantageously that the schedule
U luiily satisfactory.
On Tuesday, Senator (juay resumed the
reading of his great ?p»ech, and read for
three hours.
The Strikes.
Last Thursday the police at McKeesport
and the strikers had their first set to. The
strikers met near the mayor's office to hold
a mass meeting and were dispersed with
out much trouble by the regular and
special police. The National Tube Works
Co. stated that they would not try to run
their plant at present, and two hundred of
the business men of the city held a meet
ing and advised the men to go to work at
the old wages.
At Punxsntawney the Berwir.d-Wbite
Company erected at the Horatio mine bar
racks 10 by 100 feet with shed roof. No
tices were posted notifying the miners
that those desiring to return to work
should apply by letter or in person by Fri
day at 10 o'clock oi otherwise consider
themselves discharged. The men paid no
attention to them. The scale offered is 35
cents, the same that was paid before the
strike, end the price asked was 45 cents.
The Berwind-White people operate five
collieries at Horatio and three at Anita.
The English speaking miners and the con
servative elements among the leaders had
much trouble in preventing the foreigners
from making an attack on the armed offi
cers. If any attempt is made to introduce
non-union men no power on earth witl pre
vent a battle.
At Walston the foreigners built several
nondescript cannon, made to throw scrap,
spikes, etc., at short range. They have
screw-plugged several sections of four-inch
pipe, which they have jacketed with strap
bands of steel. There are also a number
of bombs in possession of the Slav strik
Everything was quiet at McKeesport
Friday, and the mills were guarded by the
The Pittsburg Coal operators hold a
stormy meeting, Friday, and adjourned
without agreeing as to the recognition of
the Miners Union.
At Boggs run, West Va strikers held up
a coal train on the B. A 0., the sheriff of
the county asked tor troops, and Gov. Mac-
Corkle ordered out five companies.
The conference of the opeiators of Mer
cer, Lawrence, Beaver and Butler counties
which met in Mercer Saturday, was not
very largely attended,aud alter a star cham
ber session of several hours duration, ad
journed to meet Tuesday. There was not-a
sufficient number present to warrant a pro
position ot settlement to be made and no
business was transacted. Both operators
and miners are willing to settle.
The unexpected happened K Punxsutaw
ney last Saturday. That morning a spe
cial train on the Pennsylvania and North
western railway passed through, having on
board about 200 Slavs, Hungarians and
Italians obtsined in New York and else
where. They were landed at Eureka No.
5 mine, at which squads ot police had been
on guard for several days. The excite
ment among the lorelgn element in the
mining population was intense and not
withstanding the English speaking miners
were outspoken against the use of violence
there was danger that the foreigners could
not be kept under control and that an at
tack might be made on the newcomers at
any time. A conflict between the miners,
the guards and the new men was almost
certain to occur. A large force of carpen
ters was engaged in erecting additional
barracks for the use of the guards and the
new men.
A battle between seven armed deputies
and a mob oi 300 strikers occurred Sun
day morning at 9 o'clock at the Lemon t
No. 2 works of the McClure Coke Company
two miles north of Uuioutown. One strik
er, a Slav, was killed instantly, and two
other Slavs were fatally wounded. The
deputies were surrounded and fired upon
by the strikers before they shot.
Ou Monday, Gov. McKinley called out
the sth and 14th regiments to preyeiit fur
ther bridge burning ou the Lorain K R
Another bridge had been burned and a
trestle 60 feet long had been blown up
with giant powder.
The Berwind White Co. put 200 non
union men to work in their Horatio miue
in Jefferson C0.,with,250 armed men guard
ing the mine and nothing happened that
day as th 6 strikers were waiting to hear
from Columbus.
Gov. Pattison notified the Colonels oi
the 15th and 16th regiments to be ready for
duty In two hours notice.
The conference of operators and miners
of the district, embracing part of Western
Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and eastern
and northern Illinois, at Columbus, Ohio,
Monday, effected a settlement of the strike
so far as that distriot is concerned, and so
important is the district in the bituminous
coal industry, that this was regarded as
practically a settlement of the national
The Scale Committee, which adjourned
at 12 o'clock Saturday eight, unable to
agree, resumed work that morning and
was in session all day with occasional in
tervals to permit the miners to retire to
confer. A 6 o'clock the committe agreed
upon a report. It is the 60 and 69 cent per
ten compromise, proposed by the operators
at the outset of the conference. The
miners secured just half the advance they
asked for.
The second conference at Mercer, Tues
day of the miners and operators of Butler,
Mercer and other counties broke up with
out accomplishing anything The miners
wanted 60 cents and the operators offered

Prick and oilier Westmoreland Co o»k<i
works, and the foreigners will be com
pletely got rid of. There are already 1.500
negroes at work and on tr e grouud.
Two more bridges were burned on ihe
Wheeling and Lake Erie railroad Wednes
day afternoon at Fuller's mine, two mile<
east ot Sherrodsville. The company as.
sumed that the strike was over and uiov<i<i
one train of West Virginia coal. The c»
boose was barely out of sight ot Sherrods
ville when the bridges were burned down
and the telegraph cut.
THE excuse offered by some largo coal
operators for the oppression of the miners
is that they want to take care of the con
sumers of coal. There is nothing so dia
bolical in the nature of coal comsumers in
general that they want the men who eu
gage in the difficult and dangerous pur
suit of coal mining grouud down to the
lowest notch of penury. It saerru to us
that a general wage system could be
agreed upon by the operators that would
put an end to wasteful and disasterous
Btrines, and be better for all concerned.
Were the enormous waste caused by fierce
competition between the operators, and
the great losses occasioned by strikt8 j
devoted to the purpose of making com
fortable the men engaged in mining coal,
it would certainly be infinitely better lor
the operator, the miner, and the consumer.
When there is as much human misery as
the production of coal engenders there is
surely something wrong, which the opera
tors, had they an honest zeal to do so,
could easily get together and correct.— Ex.

How ardent we've cussed 'em with lips
With sulphurous blessings as great
swear-words fell.
Tne emblems of hunger, frae-trade and
free silver,
Are sounding in sorrow the working
man's knell,
This bank-breaking Congress,
This mill-closing Congress.
This starvation Congress
We all love so well.
How sweet from their eloquent lips to re
ceive it.
''Cursed tariff protection no longer up
We listened-and voted our dinner pails
The factories silent, the lurnaces cold.
And now fa r removed lrom our lost situ
The tear of regret doth intrusively swell,
We yearn for Republican Administration
And sigh for the Congress that served us
so well
This Fifty-third Congress,
This Democratic Congress,
This sugar-cured Congress
We wish was in—well.

The trustees of the U. P. church meet
on Wednesday afternoon to make arraug
ments to have their church papered and
retinished in the basement. I suppose to
make it correspond with audience room up
stairs which is nicely finished.
Politics are very quiet here now,some are
taking consolation in tho result of next
fall election, the prospects are there will
be a grand majority of Republicans in both
Houses after next fall which will perhaps
turn the tide of governmeut.
