Notwithstanding the depletion of the
surplus in tbe federal treasury by forced
bond purchases, the beginning of tbe
fiscal year shows that $?(I.INI0.NKJ is still
lying unused and unneeiled in the vaults.
This vast sum, wrenched from tbe pockets
of labor, is the cynosure upon which the
eye of republican spoilsmen are fixed.
To grab and dissipate this money is to

How to Annihilate ihr Magar Tmat
The indignant protests of tbe people
through tbe columns of tbe democratic
press, against sulimitling any longer to
legalized robbery by tbe infamous sugar
trust has alarmed the republican organs
of the country and they are now becom
ing alumni unanimous in their demands
that "something should he done."
As might !e expected, however, the
remedy suggested by the protection press
would be no remedy at all in fact would
only increase the already enormous prof
its of tbe sugar combine, without lessen
ing the price of that commodity to the
consumer one penny. The republican
organs say "put raw sugars on the free
list; let the raw material come in free and
tbe price of sugar will immediately fall.'
This concession to tbe democratic doc
trine that the free entry of any raw ma
terial would inure to the benefit of the
masses is noteworthy, but the fact is that
in this special instance such free entry
would not result in the good claimed for
It is tbe difference of duty between raw
and re fine 1 1 sugars which gives tbe Sugar

That diflerence is from f 1 2tt to $1 .42 jier
The duties upon raw sugars are on a
sliding scale, according to the results of
test hy tbe polanscope. Those testing
not higher than 75 degrees pay 140 cents
per pound and four-bundredths of a cent

sugar that yields nearly all tbe revenue.
Of t37,WN,iNio collected on sugar and mo
lasses in 1947, all but $t,rtH),iSH was paid
on raw sugars, and of this last named
amount nearly all was paid on molasses.
Tbe best n fined suar yielded but fl.

To repeal tbe duty on raw sugar
would raise it to . :i.f.O. It would in
crease tbe profits of the trust, without
benefitting tbe consumer. On tbe othei
band to repeal the duty on refined sugar
wouiu at once annihilate tbe trust.
That is what the people want the re
peal of the duties upon refined sugar so
that tbe refiners of the country will lie
compelled to reduce their profits to the
basis fixed by fair competition. When
ever tbe duties are -.o arranged that re
fined amrar maybe imported to compete
with product of the trnsl Ti-ln-ru, the
monopoly will be overturned.
Let tbe republican organs urge this
upon congress a reduction of tbe tariff
upon renned sugar as well as the repeal
of the duties upon the raw article, and
tbe people and not tbe trust will reap
the ben til.

The tests showed two favorable routes be
tween Blue Inland and Sag bridge, one fol
lowing tbe old Calumet feeder north of Lane's
island, the other .assing s-.uth of Lane's isl
and and joining the feeder route five miles
east of Sag bridge. They also snowed that
previous reports had greatly exaggerated the
dinicultitis f these routes. Instead of seven

six test Imriiis wtfre made with the same
result that much less rock excavation is
necessary than had previously b-s-n reporteL

The report further says that an artificial
navigable waterway betnei.n Chicago and
the Mississippi Is not likely to prove as dilli
cult or expensive an undertaking as has lsHn
estimnte.1. . The route fron Lake Michigan,
near Chicago, to the Mississippi, via Illinois,
is the most favorable route of lilx-ral capaci

education was only a device to dam

Scbanton, Ta., July 18. General Master
Workman Powderiy will pay bis resects to
President Austin Corbin. of tbe Reading
railroad, in the next number of the official
journal of the Knights of Lator. The Cor
bin ukase, declaring that no member of any
labor organization will be employed by the
company, has called forth a ringing mani
festo from tbe lalior chief, in which he sound
the key-note of a n )W political crusade of the
Knights of Labor under tbe title of "Hats
Off to Mr. Corbin.'

He refers to the Molly Maguire organiza
tion of some tin e ago as follows: "The
Molly Maguire conspiracy was the legitimate
offspring of the policy of insubordination to

After some more denunciation of corpora
tions in general and the Reading in particu
lar, Powderly continues: 'Pon't blame Aus
tin Corbin for whan be is doing. Be men,
and take the res sensibility on your own
shoulders. It is cowardly to whine atout
the oppression of capital when we have a
remedy in our own riands. It is worse than
cowardly to know I ow to do a thing and not
do it, There is no remedy while the state of

millions of Kemocn.tic and Republican work
ingmen who do not !-ealize that they should b
citizens, freemen, patriots before being par

' Right here let m say to you that the man
who now hints at deeds of violence as a rem
edy is a traitor to the state. If, after all that
has tswn told to yon, you do not know how
to apply the proper remedy, then your case
is hopeless. We ca inot compel oliedience to
the constitution of Pennsylvania while men
can lie brow-lsuiten at the sills and com

The cars were load. si w ith miners, slate
pickers and women. At Coal Run switch
the road branches to the main line, which,
bad heretofore lieen hidden by a chain of
no intains. After the train gained the main
line a miner, bluing on the rear platform,
saw the two runaway cars dashing down the
track at lightning speed. With a cry of
warning he jumped off and rolled down an
embankment iu safety. Then Flagman John
Metz followed, aud place.! a number of rail
road lies on the track, through which the
cars passed like a shot.
Panic in the Passenger Cars.
By this time the inmates of the two pas
senger car. which were literally acked, be
held the danger, nnd a w ild stvueof confusion
ensued. A simultaneous rush for the doors
was niada A few- succeeded in gaining the
platforms and safely jumped off; then a jam
occurred in the doorway. A number escajusl
through the open windows and roiled down a
steep emtiaukment. Mrs. John Mcllugh,
about t- become a mother, leapel from her
seat and shoubsi to the men in tbe rear car:
'Clear the way for me." Instantly the men
w ho wvre righting like demons to get out
cleared a passage, through which the woman
ran out to the platform ami jumped i ff the
flying train into tlie creek.
The Awful Pinal Crash.
A second later the crash came. After the
runaway cars struck they assed through
the passenger cars like a bullet, the coal fly
ing stout liKe a battery of Gatling guns
playing on regiments of masked trs-s. The
scene that followed was terrible. All this
time the wrecked train kept the track and
rushed on to Luke Fiddler station with light
ning like sw iftiless, two miles down the line.
Then the engine left the track and the cars
telescoiieil. Here is where the most damage
was done. After the vast clouds of dust
cleared away tbe work of rescue commenced,
and in an hour the dead and woundod were
ansed by Meddling Roys.
The cars that caused the wreck started
from the Excelsior colliery, two miles east
of C.ial Run snitch. There were four cars
standing on tbe siding below the colliery,
and it is supposed that some lioys. in order
to obtain a ride, uncoupled the two and
lo.wene.1 the brakes. When Hearing a tftent
swith leading to the main track the brakes
were put on, but the boys being unable to
tighten them enough, became frightened and
juniwi off and took to the woods.

The Aerial Wonder Isisapuears with Its
Daring Navigator and Ills Fate Is Un

Its First Trial A Sketch of the Balloon
ist anil Ills Previous Performances.
New York, July 18. The probable fate
of Edward D. Hogan, who took an aerial sail
in Campbell's new-fangled balloon Tues
day was a matter of pure speculation
yesterday. Professor Campbell, the designer
and builder of the ship, has steadily main
tained that Hogan is safe in some distant
corner of Long Island. He has been ex
perimenting for a long time to perfect a ship
that cau navigate tbe air. He believed that
it was possible to sail dead to the windward.
He constructed a cigar-shspad balloon, so that
the resistance to the wind might be reduced
to a minimum, and to this he suspended tbe
The Air-Ship Described.
The balloon was fifty feet in length, and
when filled with gas twenty-four feet in di
ameter. Tbe ship was built of iron and can
vas, was thirty-six feet in length, and
weighed 400 pounds. It was shaped like a
boat; the rudder was on the bow, and on the
stern was a propeller that was to drive it
through the air. Under the ship w as another
wheel, in which were a number of twisted
blades. This w heel was to elevate or lower
it. When revolved to the right it was ex
pect! to send the ship up in the air; when
tbe motion was reversed the ship was low
ered. The Ascent on Tuesday.
When the ship went up the wind was
blowing from the northeast and it took a
southerly course. The proiieller was worked
by an electric moto and Hogan worked the
elevating wheel by means of a crank. After
having gone a mile tbe elevating wheel fell
to the ground. It is now iu the Sixteenth Pre
cinct station house. The only way the ship
could 1 lowered then was by means of the
valve to let out tha gas. In Bpite of this ac
cident the ship still sailed on and was soon
lost sight of.
A Success the First Trial,
Before the accident occurred w Inch result
ed in the loss of the elevating w heel it was
dcmoslrated that the balloon could be driven
alx.ut at w ill, as Hoi;aii raised and lowered
it and sailed a considerable distance iu the
teeth of the win.L He returned to his start
ing point and held the airship motionless
over the heads of thousands who were gax
iug ti ut him.
Not Prepared for a Voyage.
Professor Hogan had not taken breakfast
when he started, and he had no provisions on
board lie was very thinly clotltd. He
had a life-preserver, to lie used in the event
of his taking a tumble into the ocean. There
was enough gas on loard, Mr. Campbell
thought, to keep the balloon in the air for
Some Account of lloiran.
Hogan was Imm at Ann Arbor thirty-four
years ago. lie made his hrst trip in a hot
air lialloou, when he was IT, at a circus. In
Jackson he worked ill a planing mill fourteen
years to get money enough to start He w as
always determined to be an aeronaut, and is
totally devoid of fear and a splendid athlete.
In IsM he made bis first regular ascensiou in
a balloon made by himself, paying the gas
company $U0 to inflate it He was up two
hours, landing at c-tockbridge, twenty-three
miles north of Jackson. During tbe next six
years he made many ascensions, and was re
markably successful. He bas hod several
accidents, but always escaped, being cool
Ills Aerial Adventures.
At Greenville, Mich., four years ago, his
hot-air balloon burst when half a mile up,
but he climbed into the netting, inverted it,
making a parachute, and des.vnded safely.
There he conceived the parachute idea which
he bas so successfully worked during tbe last
two years. It was Hogan who sent Barthol
omew around the world with the Chicago
ball team. He has made several parachute
jumps this season, and in answer to numer
ous requests by Professor Campliell, he went
to New York two weeks ago to navigate the
air-ship He has a wife, mother, and three
brothers in Jackson, and they all profess
faith that "Ed" will come out all right from
this great and last trip, but up to a late hour
