STREET (COMMISSION 2 Saminel Addieman,
When the yearly products of the
soil are to be taken care of the question
of finances comes up with more pre-
cision than at other times, except on
account of something extraordinary
‘and of influences of rational breadth.
The present situation is being discussed
on account of the reasons suggested
above, and is noticed as follows by an
"anthority liberally informed:
“The currency condition prevailing
in different portions of the country,
are of particular importance at the
present time, as indicating the avail-
able supply to meet the demand for
the crop movement and the fall trade.
The banks show no disposition to pay
out gold in public revenues, so long as
silver notes are piling up at the money
centres. According to financial author-
ities, the abundance of paper money is
keeping gold away from the treasury
and facilitating its exports to Europe.
The call for money, generally makes |
itself manifest during the last week in
July, but it is a little late this year.
- During the latter half of August, the
demand is always large, but it is not
until September or October that it
. reaches its highest point.
~ “According to the Journal of Com-
merce, there is an ample supply of
‘currency at the present time. The
reports now being made to the Com-
troller of the Currency by the National
banks are more than ordinarily well’
prepared to meet the requirements,
and are making additional prepara-.
tions. The National bank note circu-
lation, recently taken out and based on
the new five per cent. bonds, is an in-
dication of this. As a rule, the notes
so issued have doubtless been simply
piled up in the vaults in anticipation
of the fall demands. Like the large
amount of the outstanding currency
certificates, they have not been added
to the actimt money supply, but are
held ready for use as soon as currency
demands develop.
. “The most favorable indication yet
given of a turn in the tide of silver
paper that has poured in on the Treas-
ary to the exelusion of all other forms
of money, is the fact that within the
past ten days the proportion of silver.
certificates used in payments of cus-
toms at this port has considerably de-
creased. Their place has been sup-
plied by the so-called Treasury or
Sherman notes, which are more de-
__ sirable, but the change has indicated
‘that the Treasury has succeeded in ab-
sorbing the silver certificates of large
denomination, and that the actual or
prospective demand for the smaller
notes serves to withhold them from
the revenues. The percentage of the
- Sherman notes will also gradually de-
cline as currency demands increase and |
the improvement in the character of Fags.
the Treasury receipts will be more
In speaking of blacklegs the Altoona
Tribune says the following, which very
plainly hits the nail on the head and
ives some plain “and pied facts.
‘ which the COURIER highly indorses:
Two or three gentlemen inquired
yesterday whether the editorial depart-
ment of the Tribune -éndorsed the
paper's Houtzdale correspondent’s
application of the epithet “blackleg”’
'* to the non-union miners of the bitum-
‘inous region. Our answer is that it
does not: further, he has very little
knowledge of the amount of labor in-
volved in the production of a daily
paper the size of the Tribune who
imagines that the persons who writes
the editorials has also time to. examine
every word, or even every article that
appears in the paper. By the time he
has prepared the seven or eight col-
umns that go to make up the inside:
pages of each. issue his day's work of
from twelve ta fourteen hours is at an
end. The telegraphic editor, the city.
editor, all the other alert nen and
women who make a newspaper, must
have a change. Besides, correspond-
ents are usually responsible for their
choice of language. CL
We have a very poor opinion of. any
man who will enter the labor market
and underhjd other workmen. But if
some men who are in receipt of fair
wages resolve to quit work and do so
sometimes out of sympathy for othérs
and not because of any grievance of
their own, then the industrious man
who is anxious to earn a living for his
family is justified in stepping into the
‘vacant place. He did nothing to make
that vacancy; he is exercising an un-
- doubted right when he steps in and
fills it.
Is there any Sontifieation for the
- coarseness which applies the opprob-
rious epithet *‘blackleg’ to honest and
industrious workmen, simply because
they decline to affiliate with a labor
anion? We think not. The citizen
who joine with others of the same way
of thinking to organize a union is with-
in his right. Nobody has any business
to proscribe him for so doing. But he
who holds aloof from the union and
who proposes to make his own bar-
gains with empicyers and to retain the
ownership of his own time and free-
dom, is also within his right.
The industrious citizen who provides
for his family is not a “blackleg.’” The
man who so describes him is ignorant,
thoughtless or malicions. It will be
‘well to avoid the use of such an ex.
Figures compiled at Harrisburg
shows that Westmoreland county still
leads in the production of bituminous
coal, 7,583,348 tons having been pro-
duced in that county during 1568. Al-
legheny comes next with a production
of 6,894,610 tons. The production of
Clearfield and Fayette counties was
nearly the same, the former producing
6,081,324 tons, while Fayette produced
9,106,%5. Washington produced 3,414,-
424 tons; Cambria, 3,337,359; Jefferson
3,072,208; Centre, 1,350,351. The lead-
coke producing counties are Fayette
and Westmoaeland, the production of
the former being 2,011,054 tons last
year, or a decrease of 1,257,771 tons,
over the production of 1892. The pro-
duction of Westmoreland county wae
1,700,889, a decrease of 925565 tonsa
The number of men employed in the
bituminous field in 1993 was 81,800, and
the previous year, 78,759,
A Correction.
Patton, Pa, Aug. 7 1864.
Sir: —On. Thursday,
August 2d you refused to give me
any aid as “boss” of the relief com-
mittee. You then tried to give the
reasons why, “I was not entitled to
aid.” The next day Jas. Mellon called
on you and after a long consultation,
he, Jas, Mellon told me the reason you
give, It was that I was not a miner and
‘was not entitled to any aid. I tell you
through the public press oa are
‘wrong. The only ard true reason was
political spite. I call upon you to
‘ prove whether I am right or not in this
statement, to be published in the Cov:
RIER or the Pennsylvania Grit.

The Caoalport Standard says that
several sports of Patton came to Flin-
id last Wednesday for the purpose of
fishing. After seeing the deep hole at
Flynn's dam they proceeded to Beaver
dams and bought the water for the pur-
‘pose of fishing for a consideration of
$2.00. The next morning Albert Me-
Kee went before Squire Beers and made
information against all parties con-
cerned in the act for violating the fish
laws of Pennsylvania. The Coalport
Rod and Gun club intend seeing the
offenders of this law punished. - A
hearing was held before Squire Beers
on Monday evening, where one of the
parties was fined $50

Distrissing Accident.
The Brockwayville Record says that
a distressing a cident occurred at Cren-
“shaw on Wednesday which, cansider-
ing the render yeas of the victim, sent
a thrill of horror through the communi-
ty. The victim was the 22-month-old
daughter of John Smerick, who lives
near the tram road leading to drift No.
13. Atrip of loaded mine cars was
coming down the track attached to the
engine. The little one was playing
near the track, and stepped aside as
the trip drew near, but when too late
to stop she attempted to cross the
track and was run down by the mine
cark. One leg and ane arm wis
frightfully mangled and crushed. Dr.
Quinn reached the scene as quickly as
possible, and found that an amputa-
tation Was Necessary He called Dr.
Davenport to Wiis assistance and the
leg was taken off below the knee. The
arm was not amputated at that’ opera-
tion, as it was feared that the shock
would prove too great for the little one.
Tt may be necessary to take it off later

resembling Bloody flux. The first thing
I thought of was Chamberlain's Colic,
