ted Coal Companies,. that of absenteeism
may be mentioned as not the leak. The
„stockholders of such companies do, not re
side among us—no! for the most part not
even within the. limits of the state! The
dividends of 'such companies go into the
pockets of individuals residing in Delaware,
New York, &c. The curse of absentee
ism. has heed long exemplified in the
picture of misery and starvation, presented
by the - laboring classes in Ireland. The
nobility & gentry go abroad to spend diets
revenues, while their tenants remain in a
state of starvation at home. , Our legisla
ture is asked to incorporate individuals who
have ncr clainis upon them as Pennsylva

the scene of coal operations, but Within the
