Census BulletlD, No. 113, "Mine
and Mining : Iron Ore," gives a line
Illustration of the manner In which
protection to a great Industry has in
creased the wages cf the workmen,
while lessening the coBt to the con
sumer. In 1880 the production of American
Iron ore was 7,120,302 long tons, oi
2,240 pounds each. In that year the
average yearly Income of the working
miner was f308.49, and the average
price per long ton wag 3.25.
In 1889 the output was 14,518,041
long tons, the average Income of the
working miner was $409,95, and the
average price to the consumer was
2,30 per long ton.
The value of the output of ore In
1889 was 133,351,978 ; the amount paid i
as wages was (14,409,151. Thus much
i Jnore than one-third and not very
much less than one-half of a gross
receipts for all the Iron ore of the
United States went into the hnnds
and pockets of laborers.
The capital Invested In the produc
tion of iron ore In the year 1889 was
1109,766,190. The gross receipts for
this Investment were, as we have
Been, $33,361,078, of which $14,409,157
was paid fur labor. This leaves $189,
452,821, from which rent, or Its equiv
alent of interest on cost of buildings,
royalties paid to owners or its
equivalent of Interest on purchase of
land, wages to clerks, which are not
inciuueu in uie jaoor estimate, wear
and tear of machinery, Insurance, bad
debts, and a score of Incidental ex
penses are to be deducted.
The statement of results during the
ten years elapsing between the census
of 1880 and that of 1890 stands thus :

THE ELECTRIC RAILWAY.
Polp Work Begun on Main Stroot
This morning the Mabanoy City, Shen
andoah, Girardvillo and Ashland Street
1UI1 way Cjmpany startod a gang of men
putting up poles on North Main stroot.
Tho digging of tho first holo was a signal
for tho appearance of tho novor-to-be sub
duod kickers. They growled becauso tho
poles wore placed on tho odge of tho pave
ment, but could suggo no more suitable
place. The gutters, of course, could not
boblockod, and thoy certainly could not bo
put in tho roadway.
Tho placing of polos in pavomonts is not
desirable under tho best circumstances,
but in tho interest of progros we must
occasionally submit to Inconvonlonces.
But, aftor all, the electrio railway polos
will not prove a groat ovil. Tho telegraph
polos havo occupied the pavements for
years, awning posts aro as thick
wheat in a field, and tho crowding of store
boxes on the pavement seems to havo
grown into universal favor. The olectric
railway polos are being place 1 In lino with

The work of spiking rails and laying
wires at Win. Ponn has been somewhat
delayed on account of a short supply of
sills'. Under those circumstances the
progress made has been yory satisfactory
The shortage of sills, while principally
duo to tho Inability of the contractors to
keep pace with the demand, is also at
tributable to the failure of the contractors
to comply with their agreements as to size.
The company has been disappointed tn tho
supply of polos. Tho other day the officers
were momentarily relieved of their axioty
in this respect by tbo arrival of a car load
of polos. Upon making measures they
found that of the load (sixty-nine poles)
but twenty-eight wore of the size requirod
and tho rest were sent back. The same
trouble has beon experienced in socuring
sills and theso troubles, of course, delays
the work of the company to some extent
During tho past few days, however, the
supply has crawled up a littlo nearer the
damand and it is thought thero will bo very

Canvassers are at work in Mihanoy City
gathering information for a directory to b

hie publication of that character is vorj
much needed and if the Borough Council
and school Boards of tho two towns can in
itty way give tho projectors pecuniary on
cour igeraent they should do so. The com
pilation of such a work Involves considera
bletimo and expense. Experience of th
past shows that tbo merchants do not seem
to realizo this. Fow have been disposed to
help the compilers by giving thorn adver
tisoments and the purchasos of the direc
tories have not been as brisk as one would
expect. It is hoped tho directory now bo
ing prepared will bo received more fivora
bly and that the Borough Councils and
School Boards will assist tho compilers uy
subscribing for a number of copies, or i:
some other manner. The Borough Council
can certainly do something, as it is not long
since it made a purchase of copies of
