advertising, so that ba can afford to take

business of what is called custom tailoring,
or the making of garments to measure, has
undergone a radical change in Xew Tork
within recent years, and the transforma
tion has been brought about by the judic

part of enterprising tailors. The price of
c-ustum clothing was absurdly high before,
but now it has been reduced to compara

clothing, too. has greatly decreased in cost,
although its quality has been much Im

President Corbln on tho Strike.

Corbln, of the Heading railway, arrived at
his office in this city at 10 o'clock yesterday
morning from Philadelphia. In conversa

strike was squashed almost before it be
came a reality, and I do not think fiere
will be any renewal or any more strikes so
far as this region is concerned. If the
miners strike the colliery owners are ready
for them, and if there Is any difficulty with
the railroad employes, fairness and justice
will soon put an cud to it.
The feeling among coal men is that the
collapse of the Heading strike has cleared
the horizon for the rest of the season and
driven away all possible danger of a coal

resolution was unanimously adopted:
Whereas. The Heading railroad company
has struck a direct blow at ourorganlzation.
by discharging and victimizing its members;
therefore we, as the banner local assembly

Pottsvilix. Pa.. Dec. 29. Notwith
standing the fact that Knights ot Labor
I leaders hero declare that there is a general
strike all along the line of the Reading rail
road, there Is no nerceptible Interruption
of operations here. The usual complement
of local trains left Palo Alto this morning,
mostly manned by non-union crews and
Brotherhood engineers. The Knights of
Labor leaders appear discoui<ed and dis
heartened at the outlook.
Shamokin, Dec. 29. The Reading rail
road Knights of Labor heie are still out.
and declare they will not return to work
until their discharged associates at this
place are reinstated. Three train crews of
non-union men are at work, but there are
thirty-five locomotives here without crews.
The colleries in this locality are all Idle,
owing to the lack of transportation facili

clare that the miners will go on a strike as
soon as requested to do so. Good order
prevails among the strikers.

Heading employes, has Issued a circular to
the public and the Knights. He says that
in view of the position taken by the general
superintendent of the company the men
will have to unite in defense of the order.
that everything possible to effect a settle
ment has been without avail, for the sake
of the Lehigh men and the business com
munity in the coal helds; that the dismissal
of the live striking crews and of the
lecognized leaders of the strike was ac-
ceeded to; that Superintendent Swelgard
promised that no others would lose their
positions: but that many more have been
discharged; hence the strike is unavoidable;
that this strike has been forced upon them
by Superintendent Swelgard, who has de
clared that he will wipe out the Knights of
Labor, lie calls on the representative men
of the Schulkill to Intervene, and continues:

greeted Murray and Murphy in "Our Irish

lodge, No. 51. B. P. U. ., at the Grand
opera house last night.
The lower house was filled with a repre
sentative audience, while the balcony and
gallery were only fairly occupied. The bit
ter and sudden cold weather was the cause
of a great deal of staying at home; had the
weather been favorable the bouse would
have been packed, notwithstanding this
is the dullest amusement week in the year.
Anyhow, the Elks are contented with the
big audience which greeted their benefit,
nd their treasury will be increased by $170,
their net share of the receipts.
"Our Irish Visitors" certainly pleased
and satisfied the audience, which was kept
in a continual explosion of laughter. Mr.
Murray is by far the comedian and star of
the performance. The specialties were neat
and attractive, and were well rendered.
After the play the Elks and the members
of Murray and Murpht's combination held
a gentlemen's informal social session at
Adams's restaurant parlors, where a genial
good time was had. bongs, anecdotes, ex

The appearance of M'lle Rhea at the

remember. She will present her latest
success of "Fairy Fingers." AH theacces
sories that a tine company.gorgeous dresses
and a great star can give, will be seen in
this production. The Providence Tclcjntin,
of October 4, says:
Cold and unsympathetic as Providence
audiences ara said to be by some alleged
great actresses, there was a warmth and
glow In the reception ot M'lle Rhea
at the Providence opera house IaU night,
which went to show that genius and true
art need never fear to set up their
shrines here, for there will be no
lack of worshippers. A more appreciative
audience than the large one which wel
comed Rhea's return to Providence never
greeted the lady's appearance before thi
footlights, and it was an audience that none
but an actress of great merit could hnd fa
vor with. Not once, nor twice, nor thrice,
but full a dozen times the curtain had to be
ralsed last night in response to calls from
the audience before It finally tell upon the
closing scene of "Fairy Fingers." a tribute
which only genius can exact from audiences
of this city.

NEW ROLLINC STOCK.
Locomotleee and Canto be Added to the
Pan Haudle Meat Tear.
During the coming year 109 new locomo
tives will be added to the equipment of the
Pennsylvania lines west of Pittsburg. Of
the new engines 34 will be put on the south
west lines and 55 on the northwest lines.
tbe former consisting of 11 class O engines.
13 chiss M and 25 class S, and the latter
consisting of 8 class O engines, 12 class M
and 35 class S. Class O Is the Pennsyl
vania standard passenger engines, class M
heavy six-wheeled shifting engines, and
class S Is the standard consolidation freight
The work of contmct!ng the new loco
motives has been distributed among the
various shops of the Pennsylvania com
pany. Part of the engines on both the
southwest and northwest systems will tw
built at the different shops. Tho Columbus

On the northwest lines vacant numbers in
the passenger equipment will be supplied
with six new passenger and fourteen bag

eighteen passenger and nine baggsge cars
win supply vacant numbers. AH the new
cars to supply vacant numbers on the south

built at the Columbus shops. Those for the
northwest system will be built at the Alle
gheny shops. Fifteen cars additional

To supply vacant numbers "iO lx and
stock and 240 gondola cars will be built for
the southwest lines and 800 each of box
and gondola cars for the northwest system.
Eight hundred and fifty cars additional
equlppment will also be built, Columbus
shops will be expected to turn out 210 gon
dola cars during the coming year. Of the
remaining number 1,150 will be bnilt at the
thn Allegheny aud 2,000 at the Fort Wayne
The new engines will many ot them take
the place of worn-out old ones. The ave
rage life of a locomotive is about twenty
years, and a largely equipped system like
the Pennsylvania lines, with its immense
traffic requires that its rolling stock not
only be kept up, but constantly increased,
A SMALL RATE WAR.
Local rtallroad Line Ouarrellnr Over
the Fare to the Gorernor. Iaaugura.
The Bee Line, I. B. 4 W.. Pan Handli
and other roads which lead to Columbus are
just now industriously quarreling among
themselves over the rates for the guberna
torial Inauguration. In November a rate
ot one fare for the round trip was agreed to
by these lines, and later a rat? of a cent a
mile was agreed to by all roads except the
Bee Line and Pan Handle. They held to a
rata ot a cent and a half a mile.
The dissenting lines assert that they are
In accord with the rate authorized by the
Central Traffic association, while the other
roads claim that a rule of tbe association
gives to them the privilege of agreeing
among themselves on a rate.
It is asserted also that a cent a mile rate
would establish a precedent which would
be carried out the rest ot the coming event
ful year, while on the other hand it is
charged that Columbus .would be discrimi
nated against in favor of Cincinnati's Cen
tennial were a higher rate than a cent a
mile made, as Cincinnati would do even
better than a cent a mile. It Is thought
that eventually a cent a mile will be the
universal rate for the inauguration.
