further thought that If miners were
paid (heir wages In cash evety two
weeks und permitted to trade where
they pleased they could save $2 In every
$10 they would expend.
Mil. HKAMIBII DENIED.
Mr. Heanilsh also took occasion to
deny emphatically the ttuth of ux-At-torncy
Genetal Palmer's statement that
the saloons ubsorbert a good part of
the minns' wages. The smnll business
that Is belnjr done by the saloons, ho
said, was In Itself a dcnlul of this un
He also believed, but could not of
himself prove, that there was a pool
among tho coal companies. The fact
that there vn,s no competition, that
prices were uniformly advanced orlow
eied nnd that the output was regulated
wiii, In his opinion, evidence of n pool
ot combination of some kind. He knew
nothing except from hearsay of any
dlsrtlmlnatlon In canylnc rates.
Thomas J. Moore was the first wit
ness called after dinner. He Is the
manager of the four stoics In which
Connell & Co. are Interested, two of
which nie In this city, one In Duryca,
and one In Lee, nenr Shlckshlnny. Dur
ing his twenty-six years' connection
with the company he never knew nn

In the two stoies In this city the com
pany experiences sharp competition.
One-third of Its custom Is from peisons
other than their miners. Tho same
price Is charted the credit customers
who nie employes as the cash custo
mer In Duryea the mine has been working
only about two days a week of late.
Since December 1 last $3,400 worth ot
goods has been trusted out among the
employes. None of them nie allowed
to want for the necessaries of life. In
the store at I.cp the employes have
during the last five months been grant
ed credit to the amount of $1,700.
PRICKS THE SAME.
At nil these stores the prices for
goods were the ha mo and these prices
were such, that 33 per cent of the cus
tom came from people In no way con
nected With the company's works. Hven
In Lee, where the company store Is the
only one within a radius of four miles
the pi Ices are the earae as are charged
cash customers In the company's
In Mr. Moore's opinion tlielr company
ptores are n boon to their workmen.
In buch. times as these there would be
untold suffering among destitute fa
milies If the company did not have a
store where they could get credit. To
some families It Is more than a boon,
ho said, It Is a blessing. The families
ho had in mind were those whose
heads would drink up the little wages
that they get if It were paid to hem
all In cash.
There Is no actual suffering among
any of the employes of his company,
he said, as far as the company olllclals
were aware of. He had received orilers
to allow' none of the company's em
ployes to waint for the necessities of
life. There Is no icgular sjetem of car
ing for the widows of miners but the
company sees to it that none of them
aie In want.
Mr. Moore explained that the coal
company and the stoie company are
not Identical In each Instance. Tho
principal s-tockholdeis of William Con
nell & Compan's works aie the prin
cipal stockholders in the other two
conceins, the Lawrence Coal Company
of Durie-a. and the Meirywcll Coal
Company of Lee.
Dan Powell, of Dunmore, storekeeper
for O. S. Johnon, testified that the
pi Ices of goods in his companj's store
compaied favorably with those In
other stores with which It lnd to com
pete. None of Mr. Johnson's employes
are tequlred to trade In his stoie nor
nro they asked to, further than that
their trade Is solicited as Is tho trade
of every other peison living- In the
neighboi hood of the store. He felt
that the company store was a benefit
to the miner, but In answer to Senator
Meredith's questions admitted that it
was not run tolely for the miners con
venience. As an lrstance of why It
was a benefit he pioduced a note fiom
tho wife of an evidently Intemperate
employe, who asked for another
month's grace In the payment of the
rent and premised to see to It that her
husband would not waste any more of
their money until at least they got out
of the company's debt. This, he said,
was a sample of many such notes le
celved every month.
Mr. Powell believed that the saloons,
especially the speak-eaeies vvfalch
abound In mining districts are ac
countable for much of the suffering.
He has known fiequent cases, where
men have secured hams and the like
from the company store on credit and
traded th'm, at half their value to
pioprletors of speak-easles.
John Law. of Thtoop, manager of
Hcllman & Co.'s store, was next called.
Tho stoie Is In no way connected with
Sanderson & Co.'s mine, he testified,
but nevertheless the coal company
stops the miners' stoie bills out of their
wages. The coal company received no
bonus or percentage for this but did It
as a simple matter of accommodation.
In answer to tho query" ot Major Rob
tits, the witness admitted that one of
the pioprletors of the store was a
step-son of one of the proprietors ot
the m(ne. He also admitted that Hour,
sugar and meat are a tilde higher lit
liellmp.n & Co.'s Btoie than lu other
stores In the village, yet the miners
trade with them.
M. J. Huane nnd Ezra Jones, two
Bellovue miners, were excused when It
was found thoy vveic Delawate, Lacka
wanna and Western miners and had
nothing to offer except cumulative evi
dence. Jacob Jones, a Delaware, IiPkawan
na und Western gangway man, testi
fied that he received $2.07 a yard;
woikel about seven days a month and
earneJ about W a day. That was the
best pay earned about the mines thesa
times, he thought.
Mr. Jones refused at flist to take the
$1 50 nffeicd as a witness fee saying he
wanted $1.80, having been in attend
ance elx hours and believing th'at hta
time was wmth at least thirty cents
an hour. When It was explained to
him, that the state allowed the commit
ter to pay only $1.50 and that he would
hav to take that or wait until a spec
ial appropriation uct could be passed
to secure for him his extra thirty cents,

Michael McGovenr, a comical old
Irishman who halls from Carr's Patch,
next took tho oath and proceeded to
tell the committee things. After he
had enlightened the senators and rop
tcsentatlvcs on evety phase of the
mine questfbn, Senator Meredith re
marked: "I judge, Mr. McGovcrn, th'at you
favor tho rvptt lotion of Immigration?"
"Well, no then, It's too many of the
bloody foreigners we have now,"
His unconscious contradiction nnJ.
his terso If not poetical way of putting
things caused the grave and revet end
fathers of the commonwealth to break
Into a hearty laugh. Ono of them
thought to corner Michael by asking:
"iJray, Mr. BIcGoiyi, what would

a month and though a single man

Ex County Commissioner W. J.
Burke came In Just as the commis
sion was nbout to adjourn and was
given a hearing. His Ideas so Interest
ed the committeemen that they took a
recess and engaged lu an Informnl
dlseusslon with him on the questions
at hand. Mr. But he, umong other
things advanced the Idea that the high
price of anthracite was the key to tho
whole situation. The companies de
mand such a profit that the hard coal
cannot enter Into competition with the
bituminous in steam producing and the
high pi Ices dtlves those who would
use It for domestic purposes, to resort
to gas Moves. He also believed In un
restricted Immigration, barring out
criminals, paupers nnd the like. If we
had ten times ns many people as we
have now, there would be Just ten
times as much business nnd the coun
try would not be ciowded either.
STOREKEEPER J ONUS.
S. R. Jones, a storekeeper of North
Main avenue, said ho had a large
trade among tho miners. Major Rob
erts' question? drew forth the Informa
tion lint his brothor-ln-lew. Joseph D.

Probing for Any Bad Votes That May
Have Been Cast by Dunmore Re
publicans Last February.
The Democrats yesterday began the
woik of probing for bad otes among
those cast by Republicans at the mu
nicipal election in Fobiuaiy. Forty
voters were examined and seven bad
votes discovered but there Is a strong
probability that two wf these wero
Democratic votes. Sarmvl Willis, who
had not paid taxes, testlllwf that Frank
Motigan, one of the Democr-Ulc candi
dates, assisted him in marking his bal
lot and Willis assisted Robert Oving
ton, another man who had nut paid
taxes, In marking his. It is therefore
likely that both men oted tn Demo
Joseph Jeffreys and Jacob Gler wero
disqualified bscause they were not nat
uralized. They came to this country
when they were youths but their fath
eis did not take out natuiallzatlon
papers until after their sons were 21
years of age. There Is a doubt nbout
the legality ot the vote of William
Ccultor, Jr., according to the way the
naturalization law Is construed
by the Demociatlc attorneys. At
torney O'Malley, however, is firm
ly of the opinion that the
vote will stand. The votes of George
E. Fritz, Chailes Mowery and William
Purdy will probably be thrown out on
account of their not being able to pro
duce proper tax lecelpts.

A mass convention of the Prohibi
tionists of the county was held yester
day afternoon In the court house at
which delegates to tho state convention
In Altoona on Juno 3 were chosen. The
convention was called to order by Cal
vin W. Parsons, of this city, county
chairman, and Pierce Butler, of Car
bondalo.wns chosen chairman and Rev.
James Fielding, ot La Plume, secre
tary. Mr. Butler In assuming the du
ties of chairman said that they ought
not to bo discouraged, that no man
who was right should be discouraged
and right he knew they were. Ho waa
glad that they had tho rourage of their
convictions nnd not of their numbers.
Among the prominent Piohlbltlonlsts

of Philadelphia, chalnnan of the Pro

Lee Morrow, of Maryland, the well
known lecturer, who opened tho con

The first business transacted was

city, and Rev. M. Young, of Clark's

delegates was then taken up. S. N.

B. Clay, Elmhurst; AV. r. Clements,
Moscow; Ira Davis, Ranom.
The committee on re3olut!ons pre
sented the following report, Mi. Lath
rope reading it:
As the leprcsentatlvcs of the Prohibi
tionists of Lackawanna county wo pledge
ourselves anew to ceaseless nnd relentless
warfare iipon tho liquor trafllc. As was
said by Mr. AVilllam McKlnley beforo ho
entered upon his political career, it Is the
most lulnous and degrading ot all human
pursuits. As has been said by tho "Uranl
Old Man" of England, it Is tho cause of
moro misery than war, pestilence and
Ths trafllc is the merciless destroyer of
our homes. Happy homes form tho chief
bulwark of our republic. Rob them or
their happiness and ou sow the seeds
of discontent, revolution and anarchy.
The abolition of tho liquor trafllc would
do moro to iclleve the poverty and dis
tress now prevalent throughout our land
than tho best tariff or the wisest system of
currency that can be devised. Our politi
cal Solons are wilfully blind to this fact
and nro wasting their time and tho peo
ple's money In legislating not to protect
henest lndustrj but to protect monopo
lies nnd trusts.
THEY EXTEND SYMPATHY.
A'e cordially sympnthUe with the multi
tudes of laboring men and business men
like AVammakcr nnd the members of tho
Business Men's League who were deluded
Into voting for Mr. McKlnley by tho prom
ise of good times. As .Mr. AVanamakor
well says, they aro a "mui.h promised
people, who, betrayed and disheartened,
no longer have faith In their party." Wo
earnestly Invito them and all patriots in
both parties to unite with us In n vlgoi
ous warfaro against tho greatest enemy
of human happiness, national purity nnd
prospeilty that exlts tho legalized liquor
AVe commend our brother, the Rev. Dr.
Swallow, of Harrlsburg, for his gallant
fight against some of our state officials,
and his exposuie df their reckless extra
vagance. And we call the attention of
the public to tho fact that tho legislative
committee appointed to Investigate his
charges has discontinued tho Investiga
tion, thus confessing that they are afraid
to turn on tho light.
We Invito our erring brethren who wun
dered Into the gold nnd silver camps last
fall, to return Into tho fold, and wo also
Invito all who love country moro than
party, who believe In happy homes, good
moials and pure politics to rally with us
under tho Prohibition flag.
Mr. Parsons questioned tho advisabil
ity of endorsing Dr. Swallow and of al
lowing Mr. AA'anamaker's name to re

THREE BAD HUSBANDS.

Alderman MillarReasons Why

Three husbands wero sent to the
county jail yesterday by Alderman

stationary Jobs. The way Bullard
pleaded for mercy from his wife, Amelia
Bullard, before Alderman Millar yes

dons only different In results.
Mr. and Mrs. Bullard have been mar
ried eight years, most of which time
Bullard has been a woithless orna
ment over the hearthstone. Some of
the time he wasn't even that. Two
children have been born to them and
Bullard has been arrested repeatedly,
but his wife has pardoned him and al
lowed him to be released. Yesterday,
however, Bullard' was arrested by De
tective "Will Clifford and when taken
before Alderman Millar he was first
stubborn nnd don't-care-at-all. A few
minutes afterward he asked permis
sion to use the office telephone. He
called up his wife at a store near their
home In Lee court. Through the 'phone
he pleaded that she withdraw the case.
He cried like a baby.
It was of no avail, however, and as
a last hope he sent for her to come to
tho alderman's office. Mrs. Bullard re
sponded to this. She Is tall and nn ex
ceedingly pretty young woman. Bul
lard Is the opposite. AVhen she came

He was located this week at AVilllam
