KEADINO Jan 9Th news was flushed
across the wires ovor the Heading system to
night that when tho vote for or against arbltra
ton was taken In thellcadlnK Companys annual
meeting In rhttadolphla today tho response
UTOiablo t arbitration was louder than that
opposed t It I was upon Alfred Bullys mo
tion t table Mr Loakwoods resolution that ar
bitration of tho coal minors strike was in or
der The ayes and nays wore called and tho
nays appeared to bo the loudest but Chairman
Oamtt declared tho motion carried Then
Mr LookwooJ made his motion that Mr Guilds I
b appointed solo arbitrator and when Mr
Bully Coved to lay on the table there was a
marked feeling of uneasiness among the Head
Ing officials present Tho motion was then
open to debate and Instantly all eyes wore
turned to the audlenoe anticipating the
presence of a few of tho bright active talkers
of Labor tho 22000
of the Knights representing 2200
miners now on strike in tho Sohuylkill regions
but there was no one present to speak for
thom It would have been I very easy matter
for Uio Knights of Labor to have bought a few
shares of the companys stock to entitle them
to the rah of speaking at tho mooting but
the policy of tho Rtrlko Committee now Is t
remain away from the Heading Railroad om
olals entirely They will seek no more Inter
views with the company and absolutely muko
no advances to them Whatever stops lending
to the adjustment of difficulties are to bo taken
must come from the Heading Itallroad
The Strike Committee are addressing their
every energy in the coal region to absolutely
stop mining and show by poacaful measures
the full power of organized labor in the Head
ing Companys system The committee will at
once take Mr Oorblna figures which ho road
today from his annual report and show to tho
country why the company can and ought to
pay tho 8 per cent advance asked by the
miners This work is already in hand Mr
CorMnfl figures show that in 1887 the com
pany received for Its coal thirtyone
cents per ton more than it did in
188G The figures further show that
t mino the coal in 1897 cost seven
cents less per ton than It did in 18SG
making a difference of 38 cents per ton in favor
of the company for 1887 as compared with 188C
The company mined 6279852 tons of coal in
1887 O < ua to 1 profit of 238631376 and I
the Cal aud Iron Company in 18SG lost 1147
0539G there would still bo I credit to tho com
pany for 1887 of 123928980 But the prices
of coal for 1888 are much higher than for 1887
and the labor leaders contend that the com
pany in every way is able to pay the advance
especially I tho net earnings of the railroad
company prop a nearly 11000000 An
other item will be used by the minors which
will show wi the Reading Company received
in 1887 Its highest rlce for coal at the mines
since 1883 and in 1888 tho price will bo higher
A careful inquiry among prce officials today
shows that while the company appears to bo in
no hurry t arbitrate yet they heartily wish
all differences wero adjusted The miners
have strengthened themselves greatly day by
day Mining In tho coal regions has fallen off
BO Ilnlnl 730 this evening not a single
loaded coal train has passed down the road
Practically mlnlmr but discontinued roal
few day the Strike Committee may even order
all dead work or repairs in collieries to be
stopped entirely I I in their powor to bring
everthll in the coal regions to a brnf
but they will do nothing to cause a dollar of
loss In damages t any of the Heading Com
panys collieries
pany8 Heading officials are opposed to any out
sider as an arbitrator but they still answer all
questions with There is nothing to arbi
trate There is but one feeling among the
conservative masses in tho Bcbuylklll region
tonight and that is that tho Heading Company
has virtually ben driven t the wall that they
must surrender and that the only question
now is How can they diplomatically cover up
the defeat and at the same time not have it ap
pear on tho surfaco 9 George Do D Kcim of
this city an oxreceiver or the company was
ciy made President of the Coal and Iron
Company He lived a number of years In the
coal regions and thoroughly understands tho
temper of the minors It is altogether prob
able that Mr Corbin and tho noW
Board of Managers Inl today will
at their next meeting give tho entire mat
ter into Mr Helms hands for adjustment
but there is very little hope of success Tile
terms of settlement heretofore given In detail
must bo rigidly adhered to say tho labor lead
ers The company must not only grant tho 8
per cent advance but all discharged train men
and employees must bo taken back and non
union men removed Anything olso will not
receive the slglitOHt attention from the Ktrlke
Committee to whom alone must all things bo
referred Chairman Leo expressed those views
hure today before leaving for Pottsvllle Ho
Idlote that not a single Individual or com
pany colliery would ship any coal tomorrow
and tonight It looks R though his prediction
would b fully verified Ho added
The minors of the Wyoming region have not
been called upon to strike You can say this
an being authoritative They have promised us
llnanclal support but if it Is necessary to cal
thom out t win the t strike they will respond to
a man but no such order has yot been Ibsued
You can also say that if absolutely necessary
for the Hemline miners to win every miner in
Pennsylvania will be ended upon to strike and
that our assurances are that they will all como
out I called upon

KuhThe Detector Failed to Detect
Tho car didnt tumble Into the street this
time cither and if It had tumbled It was only
the pay car of the Manhattan Elevated Hal
road Company I might have hit somebody
in the Bowery But what It did do was to block
up travel on the Third avenue line for a solid
hour and I quarter between 5U and OX last
evening torture passengers on the Second
avenue line by overcrowding seven times over
crowded and yet divert a host of nickels from
tho companys treasury
I was beautifully simple Paymaster Allen
S Gookln with his five assistants had been
paying off tho employees along the line and
their beautiful new car with Engine 36 at
tached was lying o tho east sldo track at tho
north end of Chatham square station They
had completed their work the Chatham square
men having just received their pay when tho
conductor gave the order to pull out and go
over to the west side track Tho engine was
counted to tho south end of tho car so it
pushed the car out on to tho main up track
To enter the west switch tbo engine and ear
had to go north on this up track as far as the
Canal street up platform When tho signal to
back down was given tho engineer started
up Quietly to got out of the way of a waiting
train at Chatham square Tho engine and the
wheels of tho forward truck of the car took tho
switch to tho west all right but before tho
wheels of this hind truck got there Switchman
tll bnd Swlchmon
Spencer had kindly thrown tho switch over
and the hind truck kept on down tho main up
track pulling Its end of tho car along with It
This of course swung the car broadside to
across both tracks and I proceeded sldewlse It
struck upright Iron semaphore signal pillar
smashed some of tho joiner work and win
dows against It and sent a shower of gluts
Into the street below Then it fetched up of Us
own accord almost square across tho main up
track Iccorl Its end sticking out over tho bow
ery sidewalk In front of tho Windsor Theatre
Nobody was hurt but Mr Gookin it la said
didnt like it
lke
Superintendent W T Gouudle who hap
pened to be at the station put a force ot men
to work nt once to pull tho car back The en
gine being attached to the inside end of tho
car was powerless to push 1 it out and an en
gine telegraphed for from Mnth street came
down the up track and pulled tho last end of
the car back with a hawser until the car was
RI on ono track nialn I was then switched
to tho side track whore It had originally stood
All this time trains were coming at a snails
pace down the down truck to the station close

For a time there seemed FOIHO danger of the

The cause of the accident was clearly ex
plained to n SUN reporter by Superintendent
Uoundlo Tho pay car was properly switched
to the track it originally started for while tho
reporter vuis on board We are changing tile
old stylo switch burs nt this point said Mr
Goiindlo for what are known us switch de
tectors They are used to prevent u switch
man from turning a twitch until the cur has
possed over it In this case the switchman
being located In a dark tower nwny back at the
station thought the pay car had passed the
switch Ho turned it before tire hind wheels
reached It henea the accident The detector
was no use In this ease The pay car
is a new one and possesses all the
modern improvements Behind a mahogany
counter with n fancy brass network Paymaster
