Is coal worth n dollar a .ton, and even a
dollar and a half, more than It was two
weeks ago? Why are the railroads confis?

ness of the country. It has not yet
reached its full proportions. The coming
week will add 20,000 men to the idle col?

greater accessions "to our ranks. ..The

from the point of'nu-nbers involved, but
public opinion, will become crystalized

are to day in closer touch than ever be?

most every branch of organized, labor,
