This Morning. Hut an the Day Progressed
More Men Went to Work.
JTZZZh HE striko on tho Lohigh
vanoy rauroau is now
in full blast and there
is a genoral tio-up
along all the lines
Even tho local branches
aro now sufforing and
a traveler who gots in
town cannot toll, or loam, when ho will bo
ablo to get out again. The situation is a
most critical one. Both sides are determined ,
but the strikors aro perfectly quiet and havo
done nothing savoring of violenco or any
other unlawful act.
Tho orders for a general striko woro issuod
last night and this morning only two crows
reported at Delano for duty.
Tho first train to pass through town this
morning was drawn by coal cnglno No. 3 10.
Tho regular train was duo hero at 7:00 this
morning. Tho coal cnglno arrived at 8 a. m
and proceeded to Mt. Carmol to bring tho
mail through. It was duo hero on tho return
trip at 9 o'clock, but was three-quarters of an
hour late with tho regular crow.
As no cast-bound trains went out from this
town this morning a dirt-burning coal eugino
No. 1G9 arrived hero at 8:08 from Dolano to
take machinists needed at tho shops at that
placo and tho young women w ho teach school
at Park Placo. Tho workmen and teachers
woro waiting when tho engine arrived and
they lost no time in getting on, fearing that
perhaps tho cngino's crow might change
their minds and decido not to mako the re
turn trip. The teachors rolo in tho cab of
the engine and tho brakomcn gathered on
Tho next wost-bound passenger train
arrived hero from Dolano at 8:50. It was
drawn by passonger engine No. 107 and had a
crew mado up of men from different trains.
This train should havo gone to Ashland, but
the run was suspended and ' the train pro
ceeded to Fottsvillo via tho short lino. Some
peoplo who wanted to go over the short lino
got left, bocauso thoy didn't listen to tho calls
of the station and train hands and waited for
tho train from Ashland, which generally
makes the Fottsvillo run, but that train
Ono of tho brakemen who arrived hero
from Delano with tho train drawn by cnglno
No. 407 at 8:50 a. m. picked up his can and
left the train when it arrived at tho depot.
Ho went back to Delano and roportod off
At 0:15 a. m. another west-bound train ar
rived. It was drawn by cnglno No. 147 and
mado the regular run to Shamokin, about
half an hour late.
Tho first east-bound train of tho day ar
rived here from Shamokin at 0:45 a. m. It
had tho crow of tho train which should have
arrived horo at 7:35 and brought with it tho
mall oar duo hero at 0:09.
The mall which should have left the
Lehigh depot at C:04 this morning was not
taken away until tho 0:45 train went out
Postmaster Boyer was very much provoked
when he learned that the mall had been held
at the depot that long. lie notified the
depot officials that thoy should return the
malls to the post office in tho event of such
delay so that thoy might be sent away on
other railway lines.
Anticipating delays, Postmaster Boyer Bent
sovoral malls over the Philadelphia and
Reading railroad to-day Instead of the
Anothor east-bound train from Shamokin
arrived hero at 10:05 this morning. It
carried irregular flap srd had no passengers.
It proceeded to Pels no.
Not a freight or coal train passed over tho
Mahanor 'fln of the Lehigh Valley road
to-day. The Philadelphia and Reading rail'
road officials say thoy aro handling about all
tho freight that comes to this section and
they aro kept busy doing it.
This morning engineers, fireman, conduc
tors, telegraph operators and brakemen of tho
Lohigh Valley road assembled nt Quakako
and resolved to stand by tho orders Issued
Tbo Lohigh tracks from tho depot at Centre
street to the crossing at Emorick stroct pro
scnted a strange appcaranco to day. There
aro fivo tracks on that soction of tho road
and there aro always freight cars on souio of
them, but today thoro was not a car of any
description In sight.
Tho passengor train duo hero at 10:15 a. m.
to-day arrived SO minutes lato and proceeded
on its regular run to Ashland. It had its
regular crow and was tho first train to mako
a run from town to Ashland to-day.
It was with tho greatest dlllicultythatany-
thing about tho striko or concerning the
running of trains could bo learned. Every
railway official and cmployo in tho district
seemed to havo been warnod to tho strictest
secrecy and all Inqulrios wcro met with "I
don't know," or "I can't tell."
As an oxtra precaution for securing socrcey
tho following message was llashod over Jho
Lohigh Valloy Railroad Company's tolcgraph
wires this morning :
"Bhtjileiiem,, Nov. 23,108:1.
' To all Agents: By order of tho acting
General Managor you aro hcroby directed to
oxcludo from your office ovcry person not ro
quired to bo thero In tho performance of duty
for the company.
"J. W. Latta,
"Superintendent of Telegraph."
This order had its cflbct at tho local depot.
The order was hardly off tho wlro boforo the
office was cleared of ovory ono oxcept em.
ployea who woro required to bo thoro, and for
tho balanco of tho day tho offico was llko a
All tho employes at tho local depot woro at
their posts to-day.
A freight train engine left tho track that
runs on the wost sido of tho Lohigh Valloy
depot yesterday- and remained off for about
three hours. Tho accident was duo to
dofectivo joint in tho rails. It lod to tho
spreading of a report that a crew had
abandoned an engine at tho depot, which was,
of course, wholly incorrect.
Tho tio-up at Dolano was complete during
the early morning hours, but towards noon
tho ranks of tho only two responding crews
wero swollcd by other men who decldod to go
back to work.
A railroader said to-day that the prospects
of tho striko, with regard to its strength oi
weakness, cannot bo judged from what hap
pens on tho Mahanoy division of tho Hue.
As a matter of fact thero aro but compara
tively fow Brotherhood men on tho division
and tho line is not of so much importance.
Tho main line is tho one to watch for Indica
"You see," said the employe, "the main
line is tho koy to- the situation. All tho
Lohigh collieries worked for several days
after tho striko started on that line, but they
only worked while thoy had empty cars on
hand. Tho can't got any of those cars over
the line now, so thoy aro idle, and no coal
trains can pass over tho Mahanoy branch,
either way, empty or loaded, until tho main
line is first opened. A strike on the branches
havo but little significance at present. The
striko will bo a determined ono."
Freight englno No. 70 with a Mauch
Chunk crew arrived hero at 11:05 this mom
ing, on tlmo, and proceeded to Shamokin. It
had but two passengers a woman and child
The short lino train from Pottsville arrived
here at 11:05 a. m. and proceeded to Delano.
From 10 a. m. until noon all passenger
trains wero running regular and thero was
much speculation as to what the afternoon
would bring forth in connection with tho
trains running to points connecting with the
The opinion prevailed In town to-day that
so far as Mahanoy branch is concerned the
strike will be a falluro and all trains will be
running regular to-morrow.
The Lehigh Valley train for Pottsville over
the Pennsylvania Railroad left hero at 11:45
a. m., thus adding another train to thoso run
There wero no new developments in con
nection with tho strike this afternoon. All

Poor Director Dorr was to-day notified of
tho death of Michael Dowling, a former resi
dent of tho First ward in this town. Dowl
ing gavo evidence of mental weakness sevoral
months ago and his friends concludod that it
would bo better to send him to tho county
asylum at Schuylkill Haven. This was dono
and Dowling remained there until yesterday.
when it was concluded to remove him with
other inmates to tho stato asylum at
Harrisburg. Tho journey was made yesterday
morning and as soon as Dowling arrived at
tho Institution ho was put in a hospital
ward. In about half an hour after his
arrival thoro he died. His death was quito
unexpected. It is supposed that tho Journoy
to Harrisburg overtaxed his nervous system.
Before his miud became affected Dowling was
looked upon as a most industrious young
man. Ho worked hard in the mines and

It is none too early to begin to talk town
politics. Somo pooplo started to "lay pipes"
as early as last summer, licnco a fow remarks
on tho election to tako placo noxt spring
cannot bo considered as a snow fall in sum
mer. In fact attention to tbo election can
not bo givon too early as It will be an
important one to tho taxpayers. It must
eocin clear to any ono having a knowlodgo of
tho borough's affairs unless they aro admin
istered on tho strictest economical basis the
local tax rate is bound to run up to an
exorbitant figure To bring about such an
administration tho peoplo must elect as
Councllmou and School Directors thoso of
unquestionable business ability and sterling
integrity, men who will havo tho interests of
tho peoplo at heart and not bo guided by
considerations for relatives or political wire
pullers. Tho Republicans of tho town cannot begin
too early to prepare for the spring battle.
Ono of tho first things they should decide
upon is whether they proposo to como out
again undor tho "Citizens" tattered banner.
If they do thoy will como out at tho small
end of tho horn on election day. The
Citizens" movement attained its object long
ago and for Bovcral years past has boon a
farco. In tho Democratic primaries only
Democrats are allowod to- voto, but In tho
Citizens" primaries it is everybody's race
and tho Democrats provo tho winners before
tho people havo a chanco to go to tho polls on
If the pooplo aro to have their choice the
'Citizens" jiarty must bo abolished, for it is
really only an annex of the Democratic party
and tho Republicans havo no voico in local
politics. Good men will not seek a nomina
tion on tho "Citizens" ticket because they
know that unless they consent to stand in
with somo ring they will be defeated by a
combination of Democrats and Mugwump
Republicans who will bloom as "Citizens" at
that party's primaries and kill thoaspirations
of all who do not bow tho kneo to ring rules.
The voters of Shenandoah aro ripo for a
business like government at tho hands of
men who can livo abovo political spoils and
hold offico without being sworved from tho
path of duty by every breath of wind.
Thero aro men of sound judgment in tho
town who beliovo that such a government
can bo secured if tho fight noxt spring is
mado in good faith that Is, if tho Demo
crats are opposed by the nomination of a
Republican ticket with representative men.
