HOW IS THIS ?
The recent Democratic state conven
tion was a gigantic farce. The dele
gates were there to make a great rant
and tear about Bardaley. They were
there to try to make themselves and
their constituents believe what has
been adequately demonstrated to
every intelligent resident of Pennsyl
vania as false that Bardsley was fos
tered, encouraged or protected in ills
corrupt methods by the Republican
The resolutions adopted at that con
vention are circulated as a Bardsley
bugaboo and the two candidates at the
head of the ticket have been placed
there simply to give an excuse for the
circulation of the malicious, false and
"Where, in the name of heavens,
does the Democratic party stand wben
the subject of corrupt public ofliclals

The N. Y. Press says the unanimity
with which the Democratic financial
authorities speak slightingly of Sec.
retary Foster's success In refunding
the outstanding 4J per cent, bonds at
2 per cent, is simply an exhibition of
their jealousy. They are like the
people who believed that no good
could come out ot INazaretu. Yet so
low a rate of interest in a refunding
operation has never before been
reached in this country. We have
been told by the Democratic press
that money Is scarce, that free
silver must bo adopted as a policy to
tee 11 id more money for the country's
needs; but the government finds
money so plentiful that it can get
over fifty millions at less than 2 per
cent., and that, too, at a time when
the same authority insists that the
government is bankrupt. There is
nothing so convincing as tho practical
financial argument to be found in this
transaction for refuting all their stories
about the treasury finances. The gov
ernment can pay dollar for dollar
what It owes, and everybody knows
it, and its credit is so good that it can
borrow money lower than any nation
on the globe. And Republican finan
cial management and legislation have
1 made this possible !

After hearing testimony in tho caso of

summoned by Deputy Coroner Uronnan
docided that tho man met his death through

According to tho evidence, Gillespio had

after ono was fired Gillespie, without going
up to see tho roult of the shot or dressing

this a lump of coal fell from tho top.
Domashefski was crushed to death and the
other laborer had ono of his legs crushed

WORRIED TO DEATH.
Tho Secret of John Kelly's
While talking about recent mino accl
dents this morning a prominent gentleman
of town said lo a Hkkald reporter, "It Is
surprising that fatal accidents in tho mines
are not much greator in number than they
are. I watch the accidents closely and I
find ths.t in nine casos out of ton they are
attributable to tho neglect and carelessness
of tho minors and laborers themselves,
Did you hear of the developments In the
caso ot John Kelly, who committed suicide
at Turkey Run a few weeks ago? At tho
time of tho euicido it was said that tho man
was driven to commit the rash act by
worrlment over want of work, Tho facts
are these, they are interesting, foe thoy
show how some men In tho mines will
persist In violating tho mine laws: One
day mine Inspector Stein wont over to a
mino near Gtlberton. Tho placo was full
of gas and tho minors were under strict
orders not to work In it without safety
lamps, previously locked In the colliory
office. Tho Inspector walkod into Kelly's
breast and said, "Give ma a match; I loft
mino at home?"
Kelly at onco drew some matches from
his pocket and handed them to the Inspec
tor, who accepted them and then called in
the boss, saying, "What is the use of bav
ing safety lamps in such places as thli
wben your men bring in their pipes and
The boss scolded Kolly, whosaid, "There
are plenty mon in this mine doing wurso
"I don't think anything wotso can bo
done," said tho Inspector, "but what Is it
thoy do ?'
Kolly refused to state what ho had ref
erence to, but the following night ho called
at Inspector Stein's office and made
Of courfe tho Inspector acted upon the
information furnished blm. Subsequently
the mon In tho mines took rovengo by
taunting Kolly for rqueallng and he was
obliged to leave tho mine. The taunts
wura continued, however, and Kolly's life
was made unbearable. At last ho resolved
to commit tho desperate act.
