Madison (Wis.), October 10.
Secretary of the Navy Moody, ad
dressing a great Republican meet
ing here today, held that the duty
of 67 cents a ton 011 anthracite coal
was "smuggled into the tariff net
in a sneaking and cowardly man
ner," and ought to be repealed at
the short session of Congress.
"The people," said Secretary
Moody, "appealed in vain to the
coal opcraters to co-operate
with the miners in efforts to
bring about a settlement of the
strike. Now when these opera
tors appeal to Congress not to take
off the duty of 67 cents on anthra
cite coal, their appeals will likewise
be rejected. Iet them have their
pound of flesh, but they must take
it without an ounce of blood."
He declared that the President
could not constitutionally scud
troops into the coal regions without
a call from the Pennsylvania auth
orities, nor couid he sieze the an
thracite lauds by the exercise of
"And if he could," added Mr.
Moody, "I should for one resist the
latter actiou to the utmost, for I
have seen far too much of the ex
travagance of the Government to
want more of it. Its printing costs
the Government twice or thrice
what private concerns would get it
for, and the 17,000 men in the navy
yards get 70 per cent more per hour
than those in the Cramp yards, this
being due to numerous holidays,
short hours, etc."

Washington, Oct. 8. Edward S.
Bragg, Consul-General at Havana,
has been transferred to the post of
Consul-General at Hongkoug, tak
ing the place of William A. Rublee,
who has been transferred to the
Consulate at Havana.
The change in the Havana Consulate-General
has been in contem
plation for almost three months.
It was fully decided that it was
necessary to make the change and
the only question where Consul
General Bragg could be placed
without substantial loss to himself,
for it is difficult to find in the con
sular service a position paying as
well as that of Havana. The offi
cial salary for the place is $5000
per annum, but there are fees at
tached, much of which go to the
Consul-Gcucral, which swell the
total compensation to about $7000

HltumlnouR Conl Minors of Western

Denver, October 9. Telegrams
have passed between the officials of
the Western Federation of Miners
and President Mitchell of the
United Mine Workers looking to a
complete tie-up of all bituminous
coal mines in the United States and
Canada. The telegram of
President Moyer and Secretary
Haywood of the Western Feder
ation says: "Exigencies demand
that no coal of any kind be mined
ill the United States and Canada
until the anthracite strike is won.
The Western Federation of Miners
will co-operate to this end."
Mr. Mitchell's response says:
"Telegram received. Shall give
careful consideration to your sugges
tion. Many thanks for the proffer
of co-operation and assistance."
"The significance of this corres
pondence," said President Moycr,
"is far-reaching. It means that if
President John Mitchell will call
out all of his men in every soft aud
hard coal mine in this country and
Canada, the Western Federation
of Miners will immediately co-operate
with them and withdraw every
man we have in the coal fields in
the West, Northwest and Canada.
And this will mean that the stub
born mine operators in Pennsyl
vania will have to bring this long
strike to an end or the people
through the country will know the
reason why. This is the only way
to end the trouble."

Ilcsnlt of Prnellcnl Tests Made by
Washington, October 7. Oil
cannot compete with coal for naval
use. At least that is the conclusion
reached by the Board of Naval En
gineers, who, for many weeks, have
been making a scries of practical
tests with various oil burners under
a 2,000 horsepower boiler in this
city. They have drawn up a pre
liminary report for submission to
the Secretary, which will show that
out of the fourteen different devices
presented by American inventors
for tests not one would burn oil un

steam in competition with coal,

(Junlnt Marrlngo Custom.
A certain marriage custom has,
uuluckily for the brides of today,
fallen into disuse. It was once in
cumbent on the bridegroom to place
a sum of money iti a purse on the
wedding night and present it to the
bride. Afterward this was done
the following morning, and the gift
was called a dow purse. Auothcr
phase of the same thing existed in
Cumberland, where the bridegroom
provided himself with gold and
crown pieces. At the words, "With
all my worldly goods I thee en
dow," he gave the clergyman his
fee and poured the rest of the
money into a handkerchief which
the bride held out. In other places
it was the custom on the day fol
lowing the marriage for the bride
to ask her husband for a gift of
money or property, and he was
bound in honor to grant her re
quest. Scottish American.
Ulrls Can Strike Also.
Chicago, October 10. Riot calls,
fights between hysterical girls and
arrests of the girl leaders, marked
the girl box-makers' strike at the
plant of W. C. Richie & Co. last
night. Patrol wagons were used
to convey many of the girls beyond
the picket lines of the strikers and
When the girl employes left the
building they were charged by the
strikers, aud in the struggle Mary
Hillman aud Edith Marsh, who
had refused to quit their positions
in the plant, were thrown to the
ground, trampled ou and severely
beaten. Rose, Auu and Madeline
Zitts, sisters, were arrested on
charges of being leaders of the riot.
Drink Habit in Ilussln.
Iu the general moral progress of
the peasantry the Russian Drink
Monopoly, which now embraces all
European Russia, is a very impor
tant factor, says the Pilgrim. The
monopoly has decreased the num
ber of drink shops by about six
sevenths, but it has failed to de
crease consumption, and has led to
increased street d linking, secret
distilling, secret selling, and other
abuses. In its immediate purpose
it has hitherto failed.
But one of the accompanying
measures is likely to play a very
beneficial part in Russian social de
velopment. That is, the institu
tion of Board of Guardians of Pub
lic Sobriety. The function of these
boards is to cmte counter attrac
tions to drink; and each board has
a branch and a district representa
tive, so that there are now in Rus
sia about 20,000 persons whose
chief duty it is to fight the drink
evil. The boards have established
all over the country thousands of
tea houses, cheap dining-rooms,
temperance inns, and shelters for j
workiugtnen; and they have built j
or subsidized hundreds of "People's
Theaters" and lecture halls.
In these halls and sometimes in
the open air lectures are given
upon the evils of drink, upon hy
giene, history, literature and do
mestic economy. The boards also
occupy themselves with the free
distribution of pamphlets against
drink, and in favor of wholesome
