COLLIERY TO SI)UT DOWN.
Hillside, XcarAvocn, Will Ho Idle for
mi Indefinite Period.
"It is officially announced that the
Hillside colliery of the Hillside Coal
and Iron conip,tn, which is located on
the mountainside between Avoca and
Mooslo, will hiispend operations com
pletely for an Indefinite period," sajs
last night's Plttston Gazette.
"This colliery is one of the oldest
and best in tills section, and employs
about 423 men and boys, all of whom
will be tin own out of emplojment.
Captain May, ot Scranton, is general
manager of tho works, and Thomas
Evans, of Moosic, is the local supe--intendent.
Mr. Evans says that prep
arations are now being made for the
suspension, nnd the woiks will bo
closed down ns soon as the tonnage for
the month Is filled, which will be with
in a few dnys.
"Every man nbout the place will bo
suspended, except the superintendent
.and tho watchman, and even the pumps
; ,lll be btopped. As to the cause of the
"isnwwlon, It was stated that tho com
' t jnj'Wns compejlta, owing to the slack
!a,WanJ. for coal, to suspend one of
Its six collieries, and the officials fig
ured out that the Hillside could be
kept dI,o at less expense than any of
the others. The suspension of the col
liery will seriously affect tho people of
Moosic and Avoca."

LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE.
Under this heading short letters of In.
forest will bo published when accompa
nied, for publication, by the wrltet'3
name Ths Tribune will not be held re
tponslble for opinions here expressed.
Mass Meeting Under Auspices of
Editor of The Tribune.
Sir The caipenters of tho city, havo
arrived at the conclusion that the tlmo
has come when they must do something
and do it ot once, if they Intend ever to
better their condition in this city, their
condition today being something to bo de
plored. What with tho lorgs number of
their craft In tho city and tho deplorablo
state of the building trade, there are largo
numbers of them on tho verge of btarva
tion, and those who nre working are only
making living wages, having lrtually rc
coived a i eduction In their wages of from
25 to 30 cents per day during tho last eigh
This condition of affairs has been large
ly brought about by Indiscriminate com
petition ot tho contractors, who bid so
low that It is Impossible to pay living
wages and make any piofit; therefore In
order to save themselves, they tako ad
vantage of the poverty of tho men and
compel them to work for wages that
would not bo accepted even in poverty
There are instances where men who
havo been used to getting $2 3i' to $3 prr
daj havo applied to the same bosses for
employment and they have met with tho
answer that they might start In a day or
two, piovlded they would work for $2 per
day as he (tho boss) can get all the men
he needs at that figure; and 1 am soriy
to have to ray that he tells the truth, be
causo the poor fellow either has to tako
It or seo his family staive.
There is no reason whatever thit wages
should be cut In this manner. Because
thnci) are bad, is It any reason that the
bo-ssesshouVl do all In their powei to make
thorn worse? Why should any man tako
advantage of his fellows poverty to en
rich himself Again In nearly every In
stanto the better paid men are (vvhero it is
possible to do without them) laid off and
cheaper men hired in their places. This
Is discriminating against tho first-class
mochenle in favor of the men who hardly
know how to kep their tools in woTklng
order. Indeed, It is a fact lint a great
many of them don't know tho namc3 ot
tho tools they aro using. The city is full
of Just such men, and I am afraid I shall
have to lay part of the course of this state
of affairs at our newspapers' doors; but
at tho samo tlmo we may take a largo part
of tho blame upon ourselves, as wo should
see to it that the newspapers of tho clt
wero better Informed upon tho subject.
What Is complained of Is this- Tho build-
Ing Inspector's report for last month, Tor
Instance, snontd building permU to
the amount of $03,000 or thereabout. This
is the actual cost of tho work complete,
and the newspapers In commenting upon
this say that while other sections of tho
country aro bewailing the deplorable state
of trade, Scranton is keeping well to tho
front; In fact, giving out the dea that
trade is Dooming here. Now as everybody
knows Scranton nowspapers aro as wide
1 yread as any In the country, and the ojt
sder upon reading this will say to his fcl.
lows,, "What Is tho uso in staying heio
and starvo whllo things aro booming in
Scranton?" And to Scranton they come.
For what? Either to cut down tho wages
of tho aheady-crovvded homo mechanic,
or walk the streets and starve with tho
lest of them.
Now, tako this $03,000 and comparo it
with the amount of money that would be
required to pay tho men employed In the
building trades ono month's pay, should
they all work full tlmo There aro 2,200
men employed, distributed as follows,

required for ono mouth of twenty-six

havo from $12,000 to $18,000 left. Compare
these figures with tho abovo total nnd
you can form your own opinion as to tho
state of the building trado In Scranton.
I would like to sny that there are a
few contractors in tho city who are doing
their best to keep up prices and do the
fair thing by their men, but they find this
Impossible, as there are others who bid so
recklessly that it Is imposslblo to compete
with them. Yet these men sometimes
make a protlt, and this Is done by sclmp
ing tho work by not giving their men
time to do a good Job. and cutting down
their wage roll to tho starvation point.
They will figure remodeling at tho samo
rate they vvouil now work, not making nl
lowanco for taking down tho old, and I
can assure you this wcrk often takes moro
tlmo than tho original Job. I havo in my
mind a remodeling Job that was done
lately in the central part of tho city where
tho lowest bid (and succes.ful one) was In
tho neighborhood of $1,000; tho next low
est was $2,200; tho next $2,3CO, and so on.
Now, slnco tho completion ot tho work,
eight-or ten of tho best mechanics In tho
city havo nt different times carefully es
timated tho cost of tho work complete,
an r they find that the lowest cost of ma
terial alono would amount to $1,530, and
the labor could not be dono for less than
$300, maklrg n total cost of $2,030. And
et, becacso In tho face of this they can
not make anything out of tho Job, they
discharge tho men employed on It becnura
they did not inako It pay. Yot the men
employed were among tho best mechanics
In tho city, tho foreman especially (who
had to go with the rest) being conceded
by all that know him to bo about as good
ns they make them.
Can any one tell me why, unJor theso
circumstances, tho men employed In tho
building trade should be other than dis
satisfied? This stale of affairs don't ap
ply to carpenters alone; it affects all en
gaged alike. At tho mass meeting to be
held at Davis' theater tomorrow evening
under tho nlisplcea of Carpenters' union,
No. 0C3, theso matters will bo thoroughly
dlBeu;sed, and tho carpenters most earn
estly Invite nil tho buslnes men of tho
city to bo there and hear our ldo of the
question. I am sure when they leavo they
will bo convince! that we havo great
cause for complant.
Addresses will be delivered by P J. lie

Federation of Labor, nnd General Secretary-Treasurer
of the United Brotherhood
of Carpenters and Joiners of America Hon.

Comrades, ns we grow older, let us bo

sacred day, nnd let us discourago tho
holding of games nnd frivolous nmuse

In tho words of the lamented Logan,
"If other eyes grow dull, nnd other
hands slack, and others grow cold In
the solemn trust, ours Bhnll keep It as
long as the light and wramth of llfo re
main to us."
IT'S MEMORIAL DAY.
Earnest attention Is called to the fact
that tho day we observe is Memoilal
Day and not Decoration Day. The lat
ter term is frequently and always
wrongfully applied. Tho press, the gen
eral publlo nnd our comrades nre urged
to lie Improssed with tho fact that Me
morial Day Is not only tho proper title,
but that any other name is a misnomer
and absolutely wrong. Lot us so observe
this day of ours tills day of America's
people that no reproach may como to
ourselves and no indlfferenco to tho deeds
of our noble dead.
Let us make place In our line for mili
tary, civic, social and other oiganiza

and girl, accompany us, let us make our
bervlccs so Interesting that nil tho peo
