An Arbitrary Advance of Thirty Per
Cent in the Price of Soft Coal.
New Yoke, Nov. 30. The Herald this
morning prints the following: There is to
be an advance of from 25 to 30 per cent in
the cost of bitumenous coal. The price is
to be put at a higher figure than it has
reached in over three years. Two great
combinations Lave been formed to control
the entire soft coal output of the country.
They have rules as rigid a3 cast iron aud
they have sent forth the edict, ' 'higher
prices." Every railroad and ever' manu
facturer in the country will be affected by
this gigantic scheme, meaning as it does an
advance of sixty cents per ton in the price
of all hereafter to be used in every furnace
uirl engine in the United States.
There arc to be two new polls in control
of the soft ceal production. One Ohio
pool has just been lormed. It will direct
absolutely the output from the ereat coal
fields of Ohio. 'I he syndicate consists of
four co.il carrying railroads which control
transportation from that section the
Hocking Valley railroad, Wheeling is Lake
Etie, Toledo & Ohio Central, and Pan
Handle division of Pennsylvania system.
Being in position to dictate they called the
big coal operators together last week and
formed the combination. The railroads
advanced freight rates on coal about 35 per
cent, and said to operators: "You must
put up your price thirty cents
per ton all around at once. Later, by about
the the 1st of January, rou must add anoth
er thirty cents. Then we will stop and con
sider whether consumers will stand a
further raise. You must also restrict your
mining so as not to over stock the market.
We will carry so much coal lor you and
Eah of the compnnies fixed upon the
amount of coal which it estimates the mar
ket will stand.aud operators along its line
have been notified that they must agree
among themselves as to the relative per
centages of the total allottment allowed by
the companies. The headquarters of the
Ohio pool is in Columbus.
All the details of the program have been
arranged. The first advance of thirty
cents per ton has already "been made
The other soft coal pool is known as the
Buffalo pool. It consists of three railroads,
which, like thy c iu Ohio, control all the
product which comes to Buffalo for a mar
ket, the Roch''er and Pittsburg railroad,
the Buffalo and"New York, "and 'PliiTauer
phia and Erie. This pool is not so far ad
vanced as the western pool, aud advances
in freights and in the cost of coal have not
yet been made. They may lxj looked for
next week. The first advance to consumers
will be thirty cents per ton.
Quake and Flood.
Columbia, S. C, Nov. 30. The new
dam which had just been finished at Lang
ley Cotton mills on the line of the Char
lotte, Columbia & Augusta Railwa-, gave
way yesterday afternoon and it is again
almost a complete wreck. The water
rushed through in a flood from the pond
and swept away half-mile of track of the
Charlotte, Columbia is Augusta Railway
and badly damaged the track of the South
Carolina'Railway. All the new and ex
pensive work recent! compteted on the
former road was totally ruined, aud it will
be at least a week before the damage can
be repaired. The accident is ascribed to a
violent shock of earthquake which is re
ported to nave been felt ia that locality
Sunday night. It is believed that this
shockjWas sufficiently strong to shake away
its foundation aud cause the structure to
break loo;C. The water flooded all the
adjacent country and did much damage.

Noble order of the Knights of Labor of
America. Official circular No. 20.
Office of the General Assembly,
Philadelphia, Pa., Nov. 30.
To all tho nabirflhiitj a-mbllra or th-j Order
Previous to the session of the general as
sembly at Richmond an appeal w:is issued
to the order for funds to statist victimized
and locked out members in various parts
of the country. The response to that ap
peal was uot such as it should have been,
and only about 1-1,000 was received there
on. This, it is manifest to every member,
was entirely insufficient to reader assist
ancc needed aud desired. Many thousand
members were thrown upon our hands by
lockouts of employers, who acted in con
cert with the a owed purpose of driving
their employee out of the order, thereby
crippling and destroying its power and use
The order of the Knights of Labor has
survived the most critical period in its his
tory. It stands as a power for good or for
evil; but vour general officers, while they
make no special claim to superiority or
purity of motive, have sworn that the
order" be made a power for right and right
only; that the law shall bo rigidly en
forced and that the members shall receive
the fullest protection of their rights under
the laws of our country anil our order, m
the eercise of the inherent right of even'
free man to belong to any organization he
pleases, not in conflict with the laws of our
Thousands of our member, men and
women, without warning, have been thrown
out of employment. They have gave to
the door of the mill and factory, and to
the mouth of the mines where but yes
teday they were employed, only to find
starring them in the face this un-Christian
and un-American mandate: "You cannot
return to work unless "you sign a coutract
to leave the Knights of Labor, and that
you will never become a member of that
or any other labor organization." Every
man who has joined the Knights of Labor
has pledged himself to do his duty in the
cause of mankind.
No oath binds him to any act contrary
to the duty he owes to God" or his country.
But something more sacred even than his
oath, his pledge of honor, binds him to loy
ally defend the principles of truth, honor,
justice and citizenship. Two alternatives
present themselves: unconditional surren
der, or manly defense. "Which shall it be?
The locked-out members in their enforced
idleness turn from suffering wives and
starving children in pathetic appeal to your
general board to aid them in maintaining
their manhood and their fidelity to the or
der. The General Assembly instructed
your general executive board to give them
all the assistance in its power. "We can ren
der that assistance only in one way, and
that through the co-operation of the earnest
and loyal members of our order.
AVords of sympathy, however kind and
gratoful, will" no: supply the needs of these
Focked-out members. We must have that
which is more substantial; we cannot sup
ply it ourselves, therefore frankly come to
vou having all thfse circumstances in mind
and deeply moved by sympathy for these
suffering "members and those dependent
upon them. Your general executive board
lias unaniinoussly re-solved to levy an as

upon all the locil assemblies of the order,

All local assemblies that rsapond to the

THE INDIANA MUDDLE.
An Injunction Enit Growing Out of
the Recent Election.
Indianapolis, Nov. 30. Green Smith,
president pro tem of the state senate and
hold-over senator from Jennings county,
today filed in the office of the clerk of the
Marion county circuit court a petition for
an injunction to restrain tlfe secretary of
state from transmitting to the speaker of
the house of representatives the result of
the vote cast for lieutenant-governor at the
recent election iu this state.
Smith is a Democrat and the temporary
presiding officer of the senate, of which
body he will become the actual presiding
officer in case the courts hold that an elec
tion of lieutenant governor was unnecessary
to fill the vacancy caused by GeneralMan
son accepting a federal ofllcc. Robinson,
Republican, was elected lieutenant governor
at the last election. The suit and its re
sult will have an important bearing in the
coming senatorial contest.
