then take into consideration tho fact that
nil through tho Now England states, nnd
through tho cuttro country, for that mnt
tcr, tho gas stovo Is rapidly driving thu
anthracite coal stovo out of use, and you
will realize what a disastrous offoct that
one cause has had, and Is having, on tho
anthracite coal trade. Tho gas is anado
from bituminous coal, coko nml waiter; no
anthracite Is used in making tho gas, so
that every gas stovo put in operation has
lt effect on tho anthracite coal tnvflo nml
has no npprcclablo effect In Increasing
the demand for soft coal. It Is predicted
that In a few years there will xno anthra
cite coal stoves In use In J".ew York city
and as that city Is one of tho principal
markets for our coal tb.o effect must provo
ruinous on tho coal 'industry.
Insignificant ns no bicycle' may appear
In connection th tho coal trade. It Is
one of the f-ititora In reducing the eon
Bumptlon r C0Ql Railroad men, in and
nround ij.vSo cities, tell me that whoro
extra Vmlns were onco required, they nro
no Umger called Into use. Clerks, mer
chants, professional men and business
itien and women generally rldo to and
from their pluccs of business In the ciucs.
They once mudo use of tho steam cars;
now they use tho bicycle, and with soma
8,000,000 of these smokeless, steamlcss con
voyances doing tho work that steam oars
once did, tho demand for coal falls oft to
that extent.
Powerful engines, propelled by steam
made from coal, were required not long
ago to do heavy work. Now one large
engine drives tho machinery which gives
power and life to hundreds of giant elec
tric motors. Each motor Is a steam de
Btroyer, each steam destroyer is a coal dis
penser, and It will astonish you to learn
that In most of our cities tho electric mo
tor Is doing doublo tho work that tho coal
fed, steam-propelled engine Is doing. This
Is another factor In tho reduction of the
consumption of c6al.
If men wero employed In every other
trolo and calling tho Idleness and desti
tution so marked among coal workers
would not bo so noticeable, but In nil
trades, In nil occupations, men nro Idle.
Tho rapid advances made by Improved
machinery have moro than doubled the
strength of tho human arm. Investigation
made by mo In that Hue somo eight years
ngo developed the fact that Improved ma
chinery had displaced from ten to one hun
dred per cent, of hand labor In many call
ings. Of course, each now machine called
other men and women Into shops and fac
tories, but those who wero displaced sel
dom found employment at living wages
again. They had learned trades and be
ing deprived of the opportunity to work at
them, thoy helplessly and hopelessly
turned away to the road hard beaten by
the tramps who had walked It before.
Each new Invention reduced the consum
ing power, or opportunity, rather, of tho
worker and to tho extent to which his
consuming crfpaclty was curtailed, tho er
fect was felt In the coal trade. I know
that economists tell us that the Introduc
tion of Improved machinery creates new
occupations and In time gives employment
to other hands. That Is true, but while
tho adjustment Is taking plaro tho men of
the hour suffer, and It Is to tho evils of to
day that we must turn our attention to
rather than those likely to fall on poster
ity. Wo can work no good to humanity
by saying that posterity will reap tho
gain. Posterity will havo a similar con
dition of affairs to grapple with, for in
ventions will not cease in our day and
With Improved machinery capable ot
producing all that the world re
quires In one-half ot the time that was re
quired thirty years ago, stagnations In
business will come In deflnnco of nil the
protests of political economists until tho
working hours of those who produco for
tho world's consumption are reduced so
that the idle ones may atslst In contribut
ing their share of tho required effort.
There is no occupation In which tho brain
is not taxed more heavily than It used
to '" It has always been admitted that
tho u.. vorker could not stand tho
strain of long hours, and since the extra
drain on gray matter Is accompanied by
Increased consumption, It naturally loi
lows that a reduction of the hours of la
bor should be made. In tho Interest ot
health, ot business, of sanitation and ot
good government, tho hours ot labor
should be shortened. This done, more
men would bo doing tho work of tho hour,
more workers would bo earning wages,
more money would And Its wuy Into circu
lation, and despite tho adverse circum
stances I havo refened to, more coal
would be required, or. If not, the Idle men

And profitable employment at something
Then, tho Immigration question Is to bo
considered In connection with tho de
pression. Somo regard it as the sole
causo of the difficulty. I do not. It H
very Important, but the other matters to
which I have adverted speak so plainly
that, to my mind, they negative the propo
sition that tho immigration question Is tho
only one. Immigration for a number of
years has been stimulated to a remark
ablo degree. Wo have altogether too many
Immigrants dumped on us each year, and
we suffer from It. That .Is a question, I
apprehend, you will have nothing to do,
at least so far ns enacting legislation
tending to check tho evils ot unrestricted
immigration. The advice given, or recom
mendations made, by the legislature of
Pennsylvania may have a salutary effect,
and for that reason you should famlliarlzo
yourselves with the effects and conditions
produced by unrestricted Immigration,
It has been asserted that there ure 2,000.
000 of Idlo men, or, rather, 2,0CM,000 of work
ers, men and women, who cannot ilnd em
ployment in the United States. Slnco tho
depression in business set in, or, to bo ex
act, since Jan. 1, 1892, 63.G93 Immigrants
have landed in tho United States, moro
than tho number of ldlo men nnd women
who now seek avenues through which
to earn a living. That wo had idle men
and women In tho United Btates four
ears ago cannot bo denied; that they
have not succeeded In securing employ
ment slnco then is admitted, or at least
others havo been driven from employment
until tho number reaches up to about
2.000,000. No one will assert that, with our
own citizens seeking employment, there
existed a necessity for so many Immi
grants. Notwithstanding tho present de
pressed condition of tho labor market
there are those who' assert that Immigra
tion should not bo restricted; that every

Under favoroblo conditions Industrially
that would bo truo; but as wo view things
today, it Is not true. Tho question of Im
migration should bo denlt with as any
other question In a common sense, busl-noss-llfco
way. If there nro too many
men here, others should not como until
iitir oWn find employment; nnd, right here,
you will pardon mo It I repeat what I
wrote In 18S7 ns n remedy, or ruthcrns one
of many remedies for relieving tho con
gested labor market.
Thero nro In most of tho stntcs labor
bureaus, established for tho purpose of
collecting Information nnd statistics on
tho labor question and to base recommen
dations for relieving tho strain, whero it
exists, on their findings. These bureaus
should bo established In every stato of
thu union, their powers should bo en
larged and each one should bo placed in
direct communication with tho national
bureau, now department, of labor "t
Washington. It should bo a part of tho
duty of each bureau to collect statistics
on Idleness among workmen, tho number
of Idle men In each town, city or village,
could be given to tho stato labor bureau,
statements as to tho number of men re
quired In any particular place could bo
sent iti to tho stato bureau, nnd In tlmo
tho system would bo perfected so ns to
make it possible to ascertain where 'work
men wero wanted and whero there were
Idle men.
Bach stnto bureau should bo in
possession of facts nnd statistics concern
Ing tho number of acres of available, nrea
blo lands, the prices of tho samo nnd In
formation as to what particular uses theso
lands could bo put to. Then, by a proper
ly arranged method, all facts gathered by
the stato bureau could bo transmitted to
the national bureau nnd tho stream of
healthy Immigration could be directed to
where employment could bo obtained,
whether as agriculturists or day laborers.
Our consulates abroad, or somo other
agencies, could Investigate the characters
and reputations ot all who Intended com
ing to this country nnd If criminals or
those likely to become public charges
applied for permission to como to tho Unit
ed States, they could bo required to stay
at homo. Tho occupation, or nvocatlon, of
each Immigrant sailing for these shores
would be known to the agent nbroad nnd
It should bo a part of his duty to send
with tho officers of tho vessel carrying
tho Immigrants, a schedulo ot all who
wero Investigated by him, no vessel to
admit to passage any one who did not car
ry tho certificate of our agent nbroad.
This schedule, on the landing of tho ves
sel In nn American port, to bo turned over
to tho national Industrial bureau hereto
fore mentioned, and instead of tho poor
unfortunate being mado the prey ot de
signing men of their own race, who now
sell them ns slaves as soon ns they land,
they could bo directed to whero they
would bo likely to find employment. Hy
this means the poor fellow Just landing
could husband his slender fund Instead
of squandering It, ns ho now does, when
he starts oft from New York haphazard
In search of a bread-winning occupation.
Tnko ono illustration which camo under
my observation a short time ago. At tho
station in this city I saw a riian nnd wlto
with threo children. They had landed tho
day before In New York, and on reaching
this city the capital of the five did not ex
ceed six dollars. They had no friends, no
acquaintances hero nnd no promlso or
prospect of employment. Tho conditions
facing that poor family were terrlblo to
contemplate, and there Is no denying tho
fact that tho advent of that man to tho
Scranton labor market added ono moro
to tho list of the unemployed and helpless.
Had such an Institution ns I hove briefly
alluded to been In operation, tho mcan3
of that family would not havo been wast
ed In coming to this city; they could have
been directed elsewhere to a place whero
ho would llnd employment. If ho worked on
a fnrmTn tho old country ho could bo di
rected to whero lands aro to be had. Tho
possibilities of such an Institution, or
chain of Institutions, aro numberless, and
while It would require time, patience nnd
means to establish the system, It Is prac
ticable and could bo mado one of tho most
benollclal Institutions of tho nation. Such
nn Institution as I have in mind could In
time bo so perfected that It would bo pos
sible to ascertain, on application nt tho
bureau. Just how mnny Idle men wero In
tho state and nation, or how many work
men and women wero required in tho
cities and towns of the state, or in tho
various states of the nation.
As an lmmedlato remedy for the depres
sion we suffer from, congress should en
act a protective tariff law which would
protect every article which wo can manu
facture in this country. Tho advocato
of free trade Is generally tho one who
does not compete with tho foreign mado
article or workman. Every dollar sent
abroad to pay for an article which ho have
the men nnd material to manutneturo In
this nation is a dollar taken from Ameri
can Industry; It pays no workman in
America, and It goes to a foreign work
man and a foreign manufacturer; It Is a
dollar lost to this country, a dollar which,
if paid to an American workmin, would
stimulate trado a dollar's worth here, for
the American workman would spend I" In
tho United States, nnd the foreign work
man will not. iA good high tariff, quickly
passed so as to provent tha dally Impor
tation of foreign mado articles would
start up the mills and factories at once,
and then we could turn our attention to
these Other things.
The committee paid the closest atten
tion to Mr. Powderly's reading- and
frequently ono or the other of them
noilded.ns if assertiiifr to sentiments
and opinions expressed.
Mr. Powderly In answer to Senator
Meredith's question said ho believed
In the restriction t Immigration. In
Just what manner he was not prepared
to say. it would be a hardship to pre
vent) any healthy, able-bodied men
to come here to better himself. Still,
ho said, the most robust of men can
Injure himself by overeatinrr, though
he eat even the healthiest of foods.
Dyspepsia is sure to result. That Is
the enso with this country. It has dys
pepsia. There are no particular classes tl'ut
should be ostracised, he said. Ho
knew, however, that poor houses, asy
lums and Jails in Europe were emptied
frequently and their offal dumped on
our shores. His brother had seen con
victs led direct from a Jail to a ship
and sent on here to America.
As to destitution and want In this
region, Mr. Powderly said, lie knew of
families whose heads were able-bodied,
willing, Industrious men, which had to
rely upon the charity of the neighbors
for sustenance during thu past winter.
Mr. Powderly also recommended to the
committee's attention tho suggestion
that coal be taxed a few cents a ton
to provide a fund for the care of In
jured or destitute miners or tho fam
ilies of miners left destitute by tho
death of the father or other earner in
the mines,
Thomas Hogan, of the Sixth ward, of
this city, was tho second witness. Ho
worked at the Rellevue colliery of tho
Delaware, Lackawanna and Western
company for forty-one years, the aver
age time work was about fifteen days
a month. The pay wus $1.05 a car.
Six cars constitute a day's work, There
was no surplus of labor about the mlno
where ho worked. The foreman hired
only enough men to run the mlno.
"Do tho miners spend their money
freely when they enjoy good times?"
asked Senator Haines.
"Well, on pay day, you know, If
they happen, to meet a friend they havo
a glass of beer or maybe whisky."
Patrick 13. Calpln', a laborer at the
Oxford, told that the pay for Ialorer.i
wub $2.20 when they worked a full day.
During the present year his wages
were about 917 a month. Ho owned
his own house, which ho paid for when
times were bettor. It would require $60
or $G0 to raise his family as ho would
like to. He knew of no great destitu
tion. Ho had seen It when It was worse.
Dennis Judge, of tho Sixth ward, a
miner at tho Archbald colliery of tho
Delaware, Lackawanna and Western
oompany, testified that ho received 08
cents a car for a oar supposed to con
tain two tons of clean ooaL, Seven
day's a month Is tho highest his mlno
Iran worked any month tills year. His
averngo oarn'lnK jwir month was nliout
$10 a month. Eighteen or twenty cam
of ooal could bo mined with, a keg of
powder. Each keg costs $2.70.
Mr. Jud.se, when asked to toll some
thing1 about tho docking, said after ex
plaining Its workings that tho sys
tem was not fair.
Senator Vaughan wnB invited to ask
tho witness any question ho cared to.
Ho naked tho witness if. he traded. In a
oompany store, and When ho received
a negative answer naked If ho knew
of any miners being coerced into trad
ing In company stores, Tho answer
was again in tho negative.
An.amah Evans of tho West Side, a
miner at Oayuga, testified that ho re
ceived 89 cents a car for clean coal.
Ho earned about $18 a month during tho
four months ot tho present year. Ov
ercrowding ot tho mines; ho thought,
was tho causa ot muoh ot tho distress.
Alfred Powell, of Bellevue, a miner
who employs two laborers, stated
that he cuts nine cars a day when ten
hours aro worked. During the four
months of tho present year ho worked
about thirty full days all told. He be
lieved thero has been a falling oft In tho
work ns compared with tho corres
ponding months of Inst year. During
tho four months of this year no made
about $3 a day. There is nio organized
charity for the relief of tho miners ex
cept their own beneiit associations. The
company does not contribute to tho
ihelp of Injured miners. However, tho
company has u hospital where they
can be cared for. The men are not re
quired to rent company houses and as
far as wltnesa know tho company has
no stores. Neither has any boss or
any one connected with the oompany.
John Tal Jones, of Bellevue, was next
called, but tho committee did not desire
any moro testimony from. Delaware,
Lackawanna and Western miners as
a number had already been heard, and
when Mr. Jones Indicated that ho had
nothing particular to Impart lie was ex
cused. W. J. Burke, of Mlnookn, an employe
of William Connell & Co., testified that
eight oars, constituted a day's work
and seventy-nine cents was tho amount
paid for each car. He worked thirteen
days on an average during tho four
mouths of the present year. Ho clear
ed about $2.25 a day. These wages docs
not allow him to raise his family as h'o
would like to. He does not deal in a
company store. Ho had never been
asked to deal In a company store nor
was it ever intimated to him that It
would be well to trade there. Durln?
his twenty years employment with this
company he lifiver heard of any one
being required to trade in the company
store or that anv ono had ever suf
fered In any way for not doing so. Tho
overplus of labor, tho witness ascribed
as the cause of the depression. Re
stricted Immigration would, relieve tho
present condition.
Frank Toole, of Mlnooka, an ex
miner, now supervisor of Lackawanna
township, thoucht if tho company
store bill nnd two weeks pay bill wero
enforced It would be of somo assistance
in relieving tho depression. He had
heard miners say that they got bad
places because they did not trado in
the company store. Foreigners are
crowding In, ho said, nnd forcing the
miners out of their places. The Eng
lish speaking miners educated them
nnd now they are taking their tutors'
places. There arc three men for every
Job, he paid, In the smaller mines.
John McManama, a track layer for
Connell & Co., said ho dealt In tho
company's store sometimes. He had
never been asked to deal thero and
only bought such goods there us could
be purchased as cheaply as anywhere
Ilichard Shevelln, a miner at the Cay
uga, thought the work bad fallen off
about SO per cent, as compared with
last year. Tils entire earnings for the
first four months was $0). The mlno
ho Is employed at Is not particularly
overcrowaed. AVitness was acquaint
ed with the miners' certificate law"and
did not believe It was of any .benefit
to the miners. He never heard
of the one certificate being; used
by a number of these foreign speaking
miners, nor of tho interpreter answer
ing the questions for tho applicant
when undergoing an examination, hut
thought these things possible.
15. A. Maloney, a blacksmith, of Peck
l!e, told of tho destitution being very
great in that neighborhood and also
said ho had heard general complaint
among the miners about the docklng
botscs. Editor Richard J. Beamish, of the
Free Press, was the next witness
called. Tn answer to Senator Mered
ith's question, ho said ho knew from
personal Investigation that tho various
poor boards wero subject to more calls
for relief than for many years. When
asked as to the causes of tho distress,
Jlr. Beamish said the ilrst cause was
overproduction in former times. Then
again, he said, thero were too many
miners for tho amount of work, and an
other cause, on which he laid great
stress, was tho company store,
Mr., Beamish was shown a newspa
per article giving the prices paid for
ten staple articles In two West Side
stores, the one a company store and
tho other a cash store. These goods
In tho company store cost $10.C3 and
In tho cash store $8.14. Mr. Beamish
thought that with tho addition of about
60 cents to the cash store prices, the
