ROBERT L. TAYLOR, of Wuhlngton.
JAME3 PHELAN, of 8blby.
The Appcal recently stated how
New Yotk la becoming victiujzed by
acombinaion of coal mine owners.
The supply wis kept down by mutual
agreement, then, because "coal was
scarce," while the demand, of courje,
remained, s before, the price waa ad
Vanes d. The result is that city is par
ing sums that make an immense total,
for which sums no value Is given by
the receiver?. A fair market profit
was made previously; this profit re
main?, and lo It is added a blackmail
' prcfit, which the monopolists pocktt.
This is not buainecs, it is cheating.
Were artits to conspire to wrong oth
ers out of their money not under covrr
of busico s they wuuld be prosecuted
and punished. If law ha justice, tan
law hold nif n to be right who defraud
under tbe cover of business, while
under another form they would be
nuoiehed? "A toie by any other
name would f mell as sweet," aud in
justice under the name of selling ccal
ia none the less foul and
hateful. In Pennsylvania a sim
ilar wrote to that perpetrated in
New Y.rk is inflicted upon the pub
He, and iU Governor has publicly de
nouiced the practice and called for
legal redrees. He says the monopo'
Ilbts "have cripplod the Indus
the 8 ate, restricted the develop
ment of its mineral wealth, kept
mines running on curtailed time,
thereby putting operatives on re
strictsd pay, discriminated against
local consumer! as to the price of coal
in comparison with other consumers."
Bradttreet'i points out that fifteen years
ajo the Supreme Court cf ronnsylva
nia, In the case of the Mori is Run
Coal Company vs. tbe Barclay Coal
Company, decided a caie analogous to
the present conspiracy to extott money
from the public for which no value is
returned. The Court decided.that the
acts complained ef wore illegal, and
' void, as being opposed lo the public
. welfare. Tbe Court siid the com
panles controlled an immt nse
coal field, and made it bring sums coal
would cot command if left to the nat
ural laws of trade. The article is one
of prime necessity, and the comblna
tion ia it jurloua in itsefiects, therefore
the combination contract is agaiott
publio policy and ia illeiia', and there
fore void, Buch a decision gives
ground to expect that many ezietiug
Combinations ol tho same character
would be broken up if the proper State
officers would do their duty and
prosecute them, as tbey would
prosecute a poor thief who picked
a pocket without any form
of bnslners. Coal combioa tans are
not the only illegal appropriate! of
publio money, nor are Now York acd
Pennsylvania the only places where
. there are combinations) do acts that
are ill gal and fraudulent, aud every
where and in every instance they
should be prosecuted aa other and
poorer illegal extoiteri tf the publ'c's
money are prosecuted. The combina
tions, conspiracies and monopolies
are spreading and itemising, and the
' country is beginning to sutler and
groan beneath their extortions aid
exec'.lcns, and it is time (but a
public outcry acd protest was made,
and the publio otfiuin's compelled to
tdo their daty. Tho othor day Jay

terial evolution of tbe Sauth Is writ-
ten in intff.es able characters In her

eyes no part of the South offers at
tractions superior to those of Tennes
see, and the same paper says of our
own division of tha HI ate: "West
Tennessee ia a land of diversified pro
duction where tbe husbandman
need only to follow the plain teach

Buch encouraging expressions aa these

meat of (he advantages in their band.

Every race of people cn the fa"e of
the earth, save the colored p :op'e o'
ths fnitid States, have a diBtinct
nomenc'a'ure and are proud of it
Tbo blacks of tbe United S'a'ea
abhor the word negro, acd con
sider it an epithet to call them Afri
cans, They call themselves "colored
pecp'e," which means nothirg, t.ai
no signification, and is therefore ab
surd and ridiculous. A few days
tince ths colored editors held a meet
ing in one of (he Northern btatee, and
by a xieing vote a resolution was
pasted adopting the word negro aa
the name for the race: ThU is a wue
movement. Tbe colored people
shou'd not be ashamed cf this rppella
tion, as it limply means a black man,
a very da k person with crisp or curly
hair. The word negro ia tbe propar
name for the race, and tbey can conse
crate it if tbey will divest themselves
of prejudice and accept it with tbat
p ide which all other races . feel for
their national cognomen. Norace can
command respect which detests the
name by which it is known in tbe hit
tory of the world and by all other
races. Tho Confederate toldler is
prpud of Ihe name Rebel, given him
as a stigma of disgrace, and when the
covered people universally accept the
name of negro it will soon loose its
odium. Like aU other races the ne
gro should have lace pride, and this
he cannot do so long as he repudiates
his historical name and substitutes it
for one which means nothing. Race
pride la elevating, but the pride that
disowns a race name ii degrading.
"Celared people" can never ba sub
stituted for the word negro, and the
b acks should aocept the latter, and
so live as "to 1 make it signifi
cant of a praud and enlightened
people. Tbe negro can call himself
sn Ameilcanas he is;eoare Irishmen
Germans, Italians and Frenchmen
but they are a'ill known by tha rate
frjm which they descended, and tbe
bla k will be known in all lime aa tha
negro, and he should adopt the name,
and by race pride, confidence in race
capabilities, the consciousness of rare
achievements, make the word negro
suggestive of intelligence, progress
snd happiness.
To most people there is (omethir g
monstrous in the conduct of a man
wh -, when the lives of fallow creature s
aie ia danger, can stand by, making
no effort lo save the perishing, through
fsar that in doing so soma danger or
loss raiy ccme to himself. The clear
evidence given at the irquest held
over the victims that perished through
ths horning of La Maacotte, views
the captain of the Er1s as having
beoQ gull y of this monstrous failure
of duty from man te bis perishing fel
la w rreaturee. A push from his boat
wou'd have Bared many lives, but
that, are ether aid asked from him,
waa withheld. Taking the evidence
and tbe jury's verdict aa correct, wa
here see only an exemplification of a
maxim olten enunciated with an air
that rays this is wisdom 1 It is the
too well known "Take care of No. I."
Others may have life or prop
erty in danger; don't Interfere, or you
may get into trouble. This was tbe
maxim that kept the Eagle from giving
help. A selfish theory was carried Into
practice, and dead lips are now el
qoently denouncing its selfishness, and
through the Ooronor'a jury render a
deciaion that will fearfully show to its
object bow rhortsltjhted suoh selfUh
lisps is. Never from the moment that
jury's decision was pronounced raa
the selfish captain s'and among his
Mlow men where he stood before, and
his red ctionf.when solitude and mid
night' wakefulness bring the awful
rataalrrplis which he could have pre
var tjd before bim; will tbey leave no
ken arrow of self accusation to tbriil
hi soul with agony? Like all satan'e
bir.se, "Take care ol No. I" ia a 1 e and
a fraud. Sdlfiihuoss Is a boomerang
that flies back and wounds the hand
that cast it. Lt that captain, if hs
should be Intrusted still to run a boat,
find himself some day in tbe position
of tbe captain of the Maacotte. ai d
how wou'd the "Take care of No. 1"
maxim app ar to him then, if- a
biothnr No. 1 man naiall tbe help he
could appeal to? There is another
ranxina aa true as ths lips it came from
ara d vlcoDo to others as you would
other should do to yon.

At the opening cf the afiernoon see
aion the Kev. . B. Spalding, of Cali

his privilege to second timi ar resolu
ti' us at Hiiladelphia, cffrtiei by Mr.
Judd, and he hoped before bis end
came to see ths Church acsume her
lrn tii le.
The Kev. Dr. Greer, of Ehole
Island, claimed that though the pies
ent name of tbo Church trai in a
mersure aixidenlnl, it wasa still more
provident al appels'ioa. Ha l the
Church of Borne changed? Had tbe
Epscipal church changed? If not
then there remained tbe SHine need of
protestiug as in the ptst. At this
juncture tbe bouse delayed a faw
minutes to determine if it ehould
authoritatively shut off debate at a
certain hoar or have all the free
ep-fch it wanted on this important
subject. The house fit ally crdnrcd
by a vote of 100 to 113 tha-. tbe dibite
gi on.
The Rev. J. J. Fande, of Indiana,
said he did not bentitatidoclard tba'
the spirit which gave the name tf
"Protestant Episcopal" should ba re
pudiated. It was a negative, shirk
ing, craven spirit. He waa not so ' au

no craven one. but one most cour.
azecu, and eusiaiued by tbe people

Tbe Rev. B. A. Rontr., ol Texas,
maintained tbat the attitude of thoce
demanding a change was an arraign
ment of ths reformation io Gaimanv.
The Rev. T. F. Gailor, of Tennessee,
made a good impression in sn eloquent
epeech, which was cbarac erized as
''progreaeively orthodox." He was in
clined to tavor a change, and euggested
that if the pendirg proposition was
adopted it would have to lie over until
another convention, giving time to
comider the name most applicable,
The Rev. Dr. Royce, of Wisconsin,
objected to the present name because
he Wanted tbe church to have no
bobby, or be plaoed in the light of
continually harping about tbe apos
tol'c succession.
The Rev. Dr. Bsere. cf Califom'a.
favored tbe idea of a change, but not
a charge at present. The lime wss
not yet ripe, Tbe great body of lay
men would ba confused and worried
over a cbange just now. but at another
convention perhaps they would nn
deratsnd that it was a short cut that
was be rg taken to tbe truth.
Jba Kev. J. X, utrault, el Louisiana,
and Mr. W. U. LJenelt, ol Houih (Jaro-
lina, both opposad a change. Mr.
Benett thought it as easy to try to
tu-n the course of the Gull it ream as
the course of popular acceptance of
any term of the English language.
i he Rev. Dr. Hopkin, of Central
Pent sylvania, at lest claimed the
II ior, making soma go:d pcints for a

however. It would take some time.
