MR. COHBH ON THE STAN?.
The Hhm ( onaniuier Begins Ita In
quiry into I lie Keadini Strike.
Philadelphia, Feb. 1.x?The congressional oorn
mli tee appointed to Invesllvale tue strike on the
heading K.Uiroad system und in the Schuylkill
and Leulgh coal regions and Its relations to the
aliened stoppage of interstate commerce ou the
Heading s> ileal, met al tue Continental Hotel
this morning ana examined preside ut corbin ol tue
H ailing Co. i'be special purpose of the committee
In holding sessions in tuls city Is to hear the rail
road siae of ihe quesiIon irom the otllcors of the
company. Mr. corblu said luat the capitalization
IsUKk) of the Heailing system was $40,000,000.
He was p e idenl ol the Heading road, but nut of
tlie Heading coal and Hon Co. Mr. ?<eo. 1!. L)e
H'ira bad been elected to that position beeause of
nis speela. Ntness to take charge ol the work in the j
coal region, vvuuh had been muc.i neglected here- ;
lofore. Witness. In respouse to questions irom i
chairman Tlilman, said thai he Waa al tue head of
tue banking concern which negotiated mortgages
I'D Western and southern lands. In order lo es
lab.ish tue Jurisdiction of the committee
THE ADMISSION WAS DKAWN FROM UK. CORBIN
that the Heading system had a connect.on by way
of Boundnrook lo New York, and had througn
traltic lu thai direct inn, aud that it also owns and !
operates a Hue of boats lo carry coal lo New York,
boston, and oilier Interstate points. but he said
that tue company, in operating tue-*; coal U..es,
on y carried tue Coal of the H aui.ig coal and lrou
to., aud was not a common carrier In
this direction. Mr. Anderson drew from the
witness tue fact tuat lue Heading Hallroad Com
pany owns the entire canllal stock of the Heading
t oat and Iron company. \\ hen asked by tue sauio
gentleman wheiuer the constitution of Pennsyl
vania did not forbid a railroad company from owu
lug or operating sucU corporations as Ihe coal aud
iron company, the witness sa d lual wuiie the
question of the right ol Heading Kaliroad Company
lo own the coal and IruA company
HAD NEVER BEE* Jl'DH'IALLT DECIDED.
It had been a matter of legislative investigation,
and he illd not believe that anyuody questioned
tne right ot ihe Heading co. to own the coal aud
Iron company, ihe cuarter of ihe former was
granted many years prior to ihe adoption of the
new constitution and was not subject to
the restriction referred to, and tne charter
ot ilie coal and Iron company was
granted a few yearn prior to tlie
adoption of the constitution, aud contained a
clause am .orizlng any railroad company in the
stale of Pennsylvania to own its stock Mr. An
derson suggested that unless legislation ou the
chai'-erol the coal and Iron company expressly
and in terms gave the Reading Hallroad Co. the
right lo own and manage lue coal and Iron com
pany, 11 was a que-.lion yet whether the constitu
tional prohibition did not appiy.
Mr. corbin?-1 cau l answer that; it b a ques
tion ot law."
The witness then proceeded to say that when
running on lull time the Heading system employs
about 1!1,000 men in or about tue mines, and there
are now about U.0OO employed. Every effort h.ui
been made lo gel the men to mine lue coal al sucn
prices as In competition with otuer operators ihe
company cou.d afford lo pay. The Heading miners
had been paid, on an average, better wages than
any other miners la the slate. Tue miners were
paid upon a sliding scale, the h&sis of which Is a
price oi per tou for coaL By special couiraci
the miners lu ihe Heading system
HAD BEEN PAID A VERY LARUE ADVANCE
for a portion ol last year because of the strike In
the Lehigh region. They had, however, agr ed logo
back alter January l on the old basis, aud because
the company could not pay an advance they went
out on strike. Mr. coroln said that the coal and
lion company made very little money when coal
was at ?2.~i0, alhougu uuJer tue scale the
miners did very well. Tne witness
then proceeded to give a history of
the strike now in progress on the railroad
system and its causes. He said, and explained at
length, ihe reason for llie statement tlial the
wnole trouble arose from the attempt of the
Knights oi Labor to refuse to handle ir ights sent
to Ihe Heading system from mines wueie there
was a strike lu progress (the Lehigh region), and
in which strike luelr organization was en
gaged, or to move goods wuich came from
nruis which employed "scabs" or non-union
labor. Mr. Corblu explained thai the company
was bound as a common carrier to accept
and move all freight offered to it tor transporta
tion. and t ou.d not ke> p men in its etnuloy w ho re
fused 10 move such ir. ight. In speaking of
the strikers wno refused to co.^e back
when ihey were given an opportunity
on Tuesday, December atter the Knights had
ordered tb-jn out, Mr. Cotbin s Id: "In tins way
lliere were aboul U.000 men laid off the rolls, ai.d
none ot them snail come back while I am president
of tne road."
Mr. c<>rbin read a long statement, showing tlie
nature ot coal mining ulcerations, to prove that coal
was ready a manuiaclured product, and the ?-x- .
penses attending its production were very mu h
Increased because of tne use of valuat ? I
machinery, the waste and other incidents of tne
work of preparing It lor shipment, lie quoted |
n/ures to snow that the Reading Coal aud iron
company has only received since lnsl, ou au
average 'J3 cents a Ion net for t oal, and said that
no owner of coal land would lease his properly al i
a royalty of 'J'i cents a ton.
'Ihe committee discUsaed the question of going
to ihe i oal regions to personally investigate, and
Mr. corbin leuder>-d a special train, which Was
however, courteously declined, 'ihe committee
then took a recess until ?? o'clock.

!tlateilali for Permit Work.
AN OIMN OS ON THE FIRST CONTROLLER.
The First Controller has rendered an opinion
that, the provisions of the act of March a, 1HK7
(24 Stat., 073), in regard to the appropriation "for
materials for permit work" in the District of
Columbia, require that "the cost of labor for the
Improvement and repair of alleys and sidewalks"
shallJln-ilty be paid by the owner of the "abutting
property," and thus payment may be maoe by the
owner to ihe commissioners of the District In any
one of three modes, to wit: First, by a deposit of
said cost with the Commissioners, upon an esti
mate, befote the Improvement, Ac., Is made;
second, by a like de|K>sii after the Improvement,
<?c.. Is mad'*, and third, by enforcement of the lien
mentioned In th" act, after tlie improvement, 4C?
Is made. He iiirtner holds that, in whichever ot
these three mo les the pa>ment Is tlnally made by
such owner, the act contemplates, that sai l cost
ot Ijbor "shall first be paid by the Commissioners
out of advances from the appropriation for
maierlals for permit work," to be accounted for as
0 her advances, and that the payments deposited
with the commissioners by sal l owners, or
collected from lilm, must be by them
deposited with the United states Treasurer,
to be covered In to the credit of thj ai>
proprlitlon from which the advance was made,
to reimburse tue same. This practice will secure
an accounting for dlsburements ror "cost of lab or,"
aud ror amounts depo-lied with or collected by the
Commissioners ou account of same.

to the memorial bridge: "Tue Commissioners of

their views. The proposed location ol this bridge
Is about haif way between th- Aqueduct and Long
bridges. It would supply a decldcj need in giving
a conv< nient and accessible passage way across
the Potomac. The Long bridge is Inconveniently
locateii for wagon travel and Is occupl d as a rail
road bridge. The Aqueduct br.lge Is at the ex

When the Citizens' Committee of One Hundred
met last night Mr. Reginald Feudal!, president of
the committee, left the chair, and, as chairman of
the select committee appointed to consider and
report upon the president's address, submitted a
report. "I deemed it my duty," he said, "on ac
cepting a re-election to the presidency of the com
mittee of one Hundred to call attention to the
existing plan of managing District affaire, about
which, it Is useless to say, there is rnucu and
growing dissatisfaction. To my mind this plan
has outlived lis usefulness, and must be modi Bed
or abandoned. The people of the District must
have tome voice in some way In levying and dis
tributing the millions collected from them an.
nually by taxation. Either the present lorm ol
governing the District must be modined and im
proved. or some other will lake Its place most
prooably Involving unlimited suffrage. Knu-'rtain

to submit the following report

The report was in the form of a printed pamphlet
containing -ja pages and entitled "A Proposal to
Improve the Present Form <t Government." It
fires a historical sketch of the inception, succes
sive phases of development, and present condition
of the District, laying stress upon matters that
tne committee regarded as strengthening their ar
guments, and especially upon utterances in eariy
debates by Congress, to show thatKepreseniatlves
then In congress understood that In time the Dis
trict would nave a representative in Congress, and
In the meantime a local legislature. The report
concludes as follows: "Your committee does not.
In view or the peculiar condition of the District oi

TUE BILL.
The accompanying bill opens with a preamble
setting forth what are described as defects in the
present form of government as rollows:
1. It provides icir an executive counting of
three persons, and thus destroys that sole and
personal responsibility whlcn is tfce chief guar
antee of a l itnitii exercise or executive powers
and a prompt performance of executive duties.
It provides th.it one of the.^e p^rsous snail be
an o nicer ot the felted states Army, whose entire
education and experience have been lu the line of
military rule?a rule always despotic, and ifen
er.d.y odious when applied 10 civil affairs.
?I. It domes the commission with many Import
ant legislative powers, and these are Increasing by
reason of the Inability or Congress to consider and
enact ail the ordinances Qfcvaaary for a i^rowinif
municipality; and this Joinder of legislative and
executive lunctlons Is m violation of a runda
mental principle of good government, and has
worked harm lu practice.
4. The commission is too large for executive
duties, and Ux> small for legislative duties- it
owes no allegiance to the tax-payers; It Is not lu
harmony with a majority ot the people; and It
fal?a to be lulormed oi tueir needs.
