Tho long process for the beatification of
John Baptist De L Bathe Is concluded and
Sunday Jan 22 has bon appointed for the
solemn ceremony The founder ot tho Chris
tan schools won born at Hhelms on April 30
1051 and died at boon April 19 1719 He
bompleted his course at the University of
llhelmg and received the decree of Doctor of
Divinity 107 In 1681 ho established tho
wellknown Society of the Brothers of tho
Christian Schools lie began the community
life with twelve disciples and from this small
number there has sprung n numerous family
which todny counts 15000 Brothers who tech
moro than half a million pupils The Brothers
have Institutions of various kinds colleges
training schools normal choolB art schools
and scientific schools They hnvo fichools In
nil parts of the world and to oulogtzo their
work would be telling an ofttold tale to those
who know their working her in tho city of
Mow York and indeed throughout tho whole
Tho following Is a copy of tho decree by
which tho lop makes known tho beatification
ot Da La Ballot
Whether admitting the approval of the virtue
and the litre miracles the solemn Beatification of
the same venrratilr ran af God maw with certainty
tainty be proceeded tciu
By un admirable dispensation of divine
Providence tha cause of the Beatification of
the Venerable Founder the Christian tichooln
lute reached the desired end at a time when
the religious education of Christian youth
rejected In various places is very often pro
scribed by tho civil laws themselves The
venerable John Baptist do La Hallo cave ut
his patrimony to secure to society the fruit of
so salutary work and to prevent the pure
souls of youth given over to Impious matters
and on nil sides enticed to vice by bad exam
ples from losing evon the germs of the true
and the good implanted In them by nature
Hence against theno crafty enemies he Ktrug
clod manfully until death In union with the
companions horn ho had associated with him
self aud whom ho left tho Inheritors of his
spirit Nothing then could be moro timely for
the Catholic Church today than the example
and the ooworful protection of so great a man
lu order to preserve the rising generation from
a loss rendered Imminent by a pernicious edu
caton this purpose tho Sovereign Pontiff Flits
IX of saintly memory Issued a decree on the
Kalends of November 187 rotpectlng the
herolclty of tho virtues of the Yenerablu Ser
vant of Clod and that as the acts ol tint process
presented no Impediment the examination of
the four < miracles might be proceeded wih
Again Our Holy Father Pope Leo XIII hav
ing dispensed with the proposal and approval
of a fourth miracle on account of the special
circumstances of this Cause it wan decreed on
the SOlomn festival of AllHafnts of the present
year that tbo thro miracles wrought by God
through the intercession of tho Venerable John
Baptist de La Sullo were sufficient and satis
factory 6ats
There now remained to be examined only the
question whether he should be ony the
honors of tho altar and this was the subject
matter of tho General Congregation of Sa red
Kites recently hold in tho palaco of the Vati
can In presence of Our Holy Father tho Pope
on the seventeenth day of the Kalends of De
cember and in which the most reverend Car
dinal John Baptist 1Itra Bishop of Forto and
of bt Huflna Defender of the Cause having
proposed the doubt Whether admitting the ap
proeal of the virtues and the three miracles the
solemn Ilealiflcatwn of the Venerable John Bas
tisldeLa Sale might be proceeded with each of
the most reverend Cardinals and Consultors
answered In the affirmative But tho Holy
Father judged it proper to reserve his supreme
decision In ordor to Implore In the mean time
the light of tho Holy Ghost tme
Finally on this Ilrst Sunday of the holy sea
son of Advent the Holy Father having sum
moned unto him in the same Vatican Palace

that tho views expressed by President Cleve

On the occasion I of my last visit to Virginia
I learned that the people generally woro thor
ough protectionists and I see no reason why
the electoral vote of that State should not be
cast this year for ono who favors protection to
American Industries in the broadest sense of
that term Clevelands idea that tho Internal
revenue should b retained seems absurd I
think the entire system should be wiped out
which would consequently do away with out
bureau that conducts it This would relieve the
people of unnecessary taxation

Mr Corbins circular Ignoring both parties to
the agreement was sent for tho purpose we
believe of creating dissension That this pur
pose has failed and that tho employees are a
unit In this demand for a renewal of tho agree
ment Is evidence that we ham acted in such a
manner as to gain tin approval of those whom
we hap the honor represent Mr Cor bin says
I will bo Impossible for this company to
pay more for Its labor than other companies
do but this company will never pay loss than
other companies pay Up to the publication
of this circular this cornnuttou has lad agree
ments sent to It by no less than eleven mining
companies and Individual operators who have
signed to pay the WIles asked for by us
The following definition of the joint commit
tees interpretation of the acreumeut was sub
mitted to Mr Whiting on Doc 24

DEAD SIR Fully appreciating the course pur
sued by your company in the past tsp clally
by yourself and Mr Oar bin In effecting and
maintaining amicable and satisfactory rela i
tions with this committee representing organized
rprcstntn orlno
ired labor the committee now desire to say
that while It Is their wish to continue the same
friendly feelings we cannot agree to any con
struction of the memorandum of agreement
between your company and the committee I
dated at Fottsvllle Sept 1418S7 other than
that said agreement terminates Jan 1 1888
for the reason that It would be unfair to ask
tho mine workers of this region to continue at
work upon the basis existing previous to Sept
11887 First because tho amo reasons that
warranted tho demaad made for nn advance
on the basis In August etlll exist and second
because tho conditions of affairs upon which
the Important provisions of that agreement
are based aro the same now as when that
agreement was made
And further because at that time the re
ceiver could not make any agreement extend
ing beyond Jan 1 it was so considered and ac
cepted by this committee therefore the inser
tion of a clause In the memorandum of agree
ment making any provision for time beyond
Jun 1 cannot in honor bo considered binding
In view of the fact that the price of coal Is
likely to remain at a figure that will warrant n
oontlnuanco of the present agreement we ask
that the name together with nl the n present n fra
tutu nluu uu ai em timmilt
the company is prepared to make the llnnl not
In August last when the demand was made
and tho question was under discussion Mr
Whiting Huggosted that the men continue to
Work and that the muter could bo arbitrated
and settled hut In the present affair Mr Cor
bin allows no nucli privilege nor makes any
such odor hence there is no alternative lor the
men but to accept the proffurfd reduction or

Thorn was Tory little market on the Stock
Exchange today and that little was apparent
ly without significance The serious condition
that the affairs of the Beading Company have
drifted Into naturally tends to check specula
tion In the sonoral list as well as In that stock
which ban all along been a loader the market
in point ot activity The dealings In Reading
today were the smallest In a great many
months aggregating only 5000 shares Laoka
wanna led In point of activity but the transac
tions In It reckoned as full stook did not reach
10000 shares It was exceptionally strong and
scored the only net change ot any Importance
In the active list Tho specialties received
quite as much attention as the more active
stocks Hocking Coal and Iron was tho most
active and scored the greatest Improvement
Tbo bank statement Is calculated to encour
age a bettor feeling relative to the Stock Ex
change markets Tho largo Treasury dis
bursements together with the return of a good
deal ot money from the interior have resulted
in a large Increase in tho cash reserves ot the
banks Thin deposits have increased enor
mously and it is a fair assumption that some
part of the additional 12000000 that has been
placed in the banks during the week will seek
investment hero Any way it will have a pow
erful influence upon the money market The
expansion of loons is not romarkablo at this
time of the year The only other news this
morning was the publication of the scheme of
the foreign holders ot tho Loulsvlllo and
Nashville Itallroad Company who sug
gest that during the next two years
tIme company devote its not earnings
to construction and betterments and give to
the stockholders in lieu of whatever cash divi
dends they may be thus deprived of stock of
the ooinpany at par They also suggest that as
soon as practicable the collateral trust bonds
of the company and the 1040 bonds be retired
by the Issue of preferred stock This last
operation would reduce the fixed charges of
the company and also release for its general
nrposes 28 162700 par value of securities
The memorial of the foreign holders has boon
referred to a special committee of the directors
The short week in Wall street has again been
an uneventful one There have boon some Im
portant developments but none ot them have
influenced the market decidedly Time New
Jersey Central and the Philadelphia and Read
ing properties have been returned to their re
spective stockholders and progress has been
made toward completing other reorganiza
tions notably that of the Houston and Texas
Central As wo have had occasion to note
during the week a number ot bond syn
dicates and some construction syndicates
have closed their operations and gone out of
business thus releasing a considerable amount
of capital for reinvestment While the stock
market has been dull the bond market has
been stronger and more active Money bus
ruled easy and all the Indications point to
lower rates On the other hand sterling ox
change advanced sharply and the advance
is welt maintained
The general trade movement Is smaller but
the prospects are generally considered good
The only unfavorable circumstance In the gen
eral situation U the strike of the Hooding
miners which If continued will unquestion
ably cause a very serious suspension of busi
ness The latest and most reliable advices the
street received today regarding tIm matter In
i I 1mW h l
pany and its employees will ba disrobed of by
arbitration In tho near future Railroad earn
ings continue good and in many cases exceed
expectations The Granger and allied roads
have not as yet begun to reflect the reductions
in rates that have taken place in the territory
west and southwest of Chicago The iron trade
is certainly no worse than It has been for somo
weeks and there aro Indications that the mar
ket lo steadying itsolf around current quota
tions The future of the market will doubtless
to n largo extent depend upon the action ot
Congress regarding the surplus If it can be
promptly distributed not only Wall street but
the entire country will probably regard the dis
cussion on the tariff issue with less apprehen
compared with the final prices of last Fri
