The progress of temporance princi ples among the young Irish-Americans of the coal region within the last ten years is simply without a parallel in the history of temperanco reform. In fact, the temperance feeling is now so strong that no young man can enter the charming circle ct female society unless he is an avowed temperance man and wears the Father Mathew badge It has now come to such a pass that the young Irish-American ladies will have nothing to do with the man who drinks. By raising this boycott against the boys thegii lshave played the part of true temperance missionaries, in that they succeeded in driving the young men into the so cieties. An illustration of this wae seen in the town of Beaver Meadow last spring, when all the girls in the place combined and resolved that they would not accept the attention of any young man until he had first signod the pledge and join ed the St. Aloysius Society. For a while we thought the young la dios were not in earnest, and that the boycott would booh be lifted. But the young ladies wore determined, and when the young fellows found this out they surrendered, and forthwith there was a rush tor admission into the lo cal temperance society. The latter is now in a very flourishing condition. Of those who join these temperance societies about ten out of forty "fall from grace," in other words, go back to drink. But the deserter's downfall does not last long. After his debauch he sees the folly of his ways, and thinks how happy he was when he was sober. But this is not the worst. All his friends are traveling in an opposite di rection and shun the outcast alto gether. The result is that a man who breaks his plodgo becomes disgusted witu himself and returns to the socie ty. After taking the pledge for a sec ond time he hardly ever goes back to drink again. The number who do break the pledge a second time is only one in seventy. A member who for feits membership in a society forfeits all his dues paid into the treasury by him. All the societies are beneficial, and take good care of the sick, wid ows and orphans. The St. Aloysius at Wilkesbarre has 480 names on its rolls and over $7,000 in its treasury. The Father Mathew Society and the Father Mathew Cadets have two hun dred more members. Every society has a handsome uniform. Death In the Wire. "There is death in the electrio light wire." Thus spoke a prominent elec trician of this city recently. "The worst of it is the danger is increasing dally," he continued, "and the public should.be aware of it. The longer the CAREIED OVER FEOM LAST YEAR, I CALL MHi M Hi M, wire is in service the greater is the danger. Something should be done, and the quicker the better. You may rest assured that nothing will be done by the electrio light companies until the public compels them to act. The trouble is the American people are long suffering. They pay little heed to probable dangors and only act when the dire result of their heedless ness is made manifest. No one will deny that tho electric light wire's which run along Chestnut street are each charged with electricity suf ficient in strength to kill dozens of men. The only safeguard Is the thin insulating covering on the wires. In hundreds of places the heavily charged elongated death traps run within easy reach of the people in their houses and stores. Children cau lean out of the second-story win dows and touch them in many places, as can and do thousands of workinu inen and girls in mills and workshops. There are several ways in which the current ""might be tur.ied from the wire sufficiently to cause death. They may talk ns they please about nerlect and lastin" insu lation, but every electrician knows that exposure to the weather, the swaying of wires against trees and the dragging of telegraph and telephone wires across the coating of .the electric light wire is bound to injure and final ly to wear it away. The wires have been up-long enough to render tho in sulation rotten, and it is getting worse every day. That is why I say the dan ger is increasing. Should a wire become detached from a pole and left to swing near the street, as has been the case several times, -and should a man chance to touch the wire at a point where the insulation was imporfect, he would be killed instantly. Should a man press the point of a penknife through the covering, as coulu easily bo done, the chances" are ton to one that he would end his life at that instant; or should one of the many people at second story windows touch a wire where the insulation was bad the same fatal re sult would follow. In case of fire the danger is very great to firemen. Cutting and drag ging telephone wire down frequently wears off the insulation. Now, sup pose a fireman standing on the wet ground and holding a no..le of a pipe against a charged electric light wire at a point where the insulator was impurfect. The connection to the ground through the stream of water to the fireman would be almost per fect and death would surely follow.'' Philadelphia News.
