The United States bureau of labor hn Issued an Interesting report of oitlclal Ir vectigations of the conditions of i\ miners in i/ie unthradte coal district I Pennsylvania. It Is published In tl November bulletin of the departmei which deals exclusively With the mlr workers In the anthracite region. T1 Investigations were made by G. O. Vli tuc, Ph. D., a special agent of the labc bureau. Mr. Virtue's report, while does not suggest a plan for the ameliorj tlon of the condition of the mining clai In the anthracite region, polni out the causes, and bring? i light facte that will prove strong argi merits in the hands of the advocates c radical laws for the restriction of 1mm! gratlon. A review of the report In the New Yor Times brings out Its most lnterestln and suggestive features?those to whlc Mr. Virtue seems to have devoted th most study. From the Times' revlc the quotations herein used arc take: Mr. Virtue begins with the clrcun stances which have led to the preser pitiable condition of labor In the anthn cite region, and concludes that, althoug wages there are extremely low, the hard ships experienced are not so much due I low wages as to Irregularity < employment. "There are tc many workmen In the ar thracite region trying make a Uvtn digging coal." says Mr. Virtue, "ana tc riuch capital seeking to earn profits." The feature of the report which has li bearing on the Immigration question ! that treating of the low grade of tli laborers employed. The Times summai lies it as follows. In part: At the present time the workers In th Pennsylvania anthracite mines cdnsli mainly of Poles and Hungarians, with few Italians?all these of the lowest ty; of our recently Immigrated labor. Cor tent with little, satisfied to exist rathr than live.these men have struggled awa earning variously from $3 to $10 a weekthe latter even an excessive wage?In th too Infrequent Intervals when they on havp work, until desperation and starve tlon have faced them. Mr. Virtue flnr inui on an iivcriiRe wiry Hir nnpiuyi lees than 200 days a year, and at a sea: of wages that has* constantly been lowei ing sinco the days of the late sixties an early seventies, when speculative open tors controlled the field. and in the ra< for business so overloaded the marke that there was neither profit for then selves nor living wages for the miner Even at the low rate at whldi these nif are willing to work, and are worklm Mr. Virtue flgids that they would be sa isfled In h degree If there were any regt larlty to thefr employment. But the tci ritory is overcrowded, and there are cor stantly more than enough laborers In th region to man the collieries to their fu capacity. Over production, which mlr owners and operators have not yet be< able to control, is the bane of the miner existence, and the principal problem a fectlfig their condition lies In the su< cessful control of coal production so r to secure a reasonable restriction of th output. Thin latter is a problem that tt operators have long wrestled with ur tuccesafully. It Is one that enters In the successful management of coal prnj ertles fully us much as Into the solutlo ' of the labor problem. Mr. Virtue reviews the history of 11 struggles of the past to restrict produi tlon as a means of maintaining livln rates of wageg, In the sixties and t*ever ties, before the Influx of the low c'.ass < labor, and when the miners In the ar thraclte region were principally Kngllsl Beotch. Welsh and Irish. Intelllgei workmen who demanded a higher grac of living, and who were organized fur th purpose of maintaining wagen. H shows that the result of these miner efforts to restrict production throng combinations by operators was the at sorption of the coal Held by carryln companion. He finds thnf (his Central ration of power which made restrlctlo >f production possible, while It helped l maintain prices, and perhaps wages, solved no real problem for either pr? ducers or workmen. The Irregularity of periods for wor hs? instantly Increased and the phys cal and moral quality of the mlneis hfl decreased. It has becomes field In whl( Intelligent labor has been driven out h Immigrant* willing to work for the low est possible wages men who have ben ficeustomcd to the pauper life of Burpt and are willing to continue It here, wit no ide/m us to the betterment of the condition. These conditions, ridded to th'- exorb tant freight rates of the anthracite road render the situation extremely dlscoui airing, so far as Improved condition* ( labor nre concerned In that dlstrlot. Ai cording to Mr. Virtue'* report, as rr Viewed by the Times writer, th oliar.n ter of the miners now In the anlhracll coal fields, with the Poles given t drunkenness, and the Huns and Itallni with no sinbltlon, Itle r f<?r high* wages or a better life, has tnade tl liroblsm of how to butter their conditio a practically hopsl^ss one, "With legislation for their toettermrr I I a confessed failure," Bays the repor "with cut-throat competition among th operators, irregular periooB of employ ment, no definite plan as to the control c >*t the output, and apparently no hope of a organization, among- the miners them selves, save among a few Poles who hav passed from the position of labortsr t * that of miner, there seems to be no r?m edy for their pitiably condition. Eao 10 works for himself, and is apparently con io cent with what he may make, regardles 10 of the Interest of the community or an ij]| other Individual In It. Intemperanc< l5 lawlessness, and crime Increases, and do standard of living and thinking that 1 jo utterly un-American sterns to preval v- throughout the whole district." d- No more convincing object lesson thai this could be Imagined in favor of re E strlotlve Immigration laws. Muoh ha n. been done already In this regard, hu more needs to be done. The Republlcai ly pariy. now in power, snoma not negiec this question. The great and patriotl e# policy of protection 1b not complete with nt out additional safeguards thrown abou ie the American laborer against the clas of foreign pauper labor here described. ?. m, lit Tlta Uolit Democracy. General Simon Bollver Buckner, wh< ^ ran for vice president on the gold Dumo t- cratlc ticket last year, writes a length; sa letter In which he contends for main = talnlng the sound money National Dem ocratio organization, and says that li H work Is not yet done; that the Chlcagi ~~ platfornj and Bryaniaj? Is Ju.it as often |g plve to real Democrats now as It was dur _ Ing the last campaign. He sees grea hope for the usefulness of the sounc ? money Democratic national organlratlot In the future and says that the usefulnesi ,a will not be ended until the so-callet j. Bryan Democracy gets back to Demo te cratlc principles. in General Buckner says, among othei things, that the party was organized, no for individual preferment, But from t ie patriotic purpose to promote the genera ,e welfare. It has, he says, been powerfu r. enough to exert a potent Influence In th? )r past; If Its organization be perpetuate It It will be fruitful of good results In th? L. future. There Id no reason to aboltoh J ,9 moro than there would be to abolish thi ts moral law beoause It Is violated, or t< 30 renounce Christianity because the ma i- Jorlty of the world Is pagan. The gen ,f eral proceed* on this line at length ani |. says that the sound money Democracj "Is based upon great principles of govk ernment which have been evolved frorr fr experience, and which, when practiced h In tlic past, have brought prosperity anj t0 safety to the people.'.1 w General Ruckner no doubt expresset thf? sentiment of the mass of those wht i. revolted against the surrender of th< Democratic convention to Populism las year, and who do not regret their action h which was inspired by as unselfish f |. patriotism as was ever witnessed In i o political campaign. They had no hop< ,f of personal preferment, and had much t< i_ mu,i? ...v.ai>, ...... 10 irme in inuk ren|>evi. i???tu nuuic |?.?i pose was to aid In saving the couutrj s from a passing: craze for a new and dan )0 gerous order of tilings. If the poaltlor they took with those motives was right then the position of such men as Genera Is Ruokner is right for the same reusoni ,e now. These Democrats do not appear to b< on the point of stultifying themselvei by recognizing Populism as Dehiociacj st this late In the day. In the meantime 11 the Republican party stands between tht J? country and the fallacies of Bryanlam r and the gold Democrats do not regre1 y that they nlded on the side of safetj ~~ from the result of those fallacies, le m 'J] Tlte'Iliorn Verdict* The verdict of murder In the first de id gree against Martin Thorn, charged wit! being the principal in the killing of Gul rfj densuppe, is not surprising. It rami i- within twenty-four hours after Thori -o made his statement flxlrrp the crlmi upon Mrs. -Nack, and shows how llttb 8 faith the jury piaceu in ms story 01 in. >n murder. Mre. Nack, Thorn's partner In crime ^ Is yet to be tried. She la already a self r. confessed party to the horrible butchery i- but It has been pretty well settled by th< evidence adduced In the Thorn trial tha )0 she did not witness the killing, and wai >n only a party before and after the fact, s* ThlH case has been one of the most In f"' teresting in crfmlnaJ annals and was re markable for the fact that each of th< ?e two accused persons accused the othei >e as the party committing the murder, and both admitted having conspired to do thi deed. n There is no doubt that both are guilt) of the conspiracy and many contend tha ,0 both t>hould be hnd equally Aocountatob 3' for the murder.

On Sunday J evening In the course of a sermon on 1 dancing, says the Journal, referring to ? four young men of his congregation, t who had clubbed together and bousht , $60 dress suits, said it was a laughable and even a ridiculous thing to see a WO } suit on a $2 boy. Furthermore, he - said, one of the young men had better . have been looking after his board bill. , A young man getting a week, he added, and spending $3 25 in one night was ' a quarter short and that such n young, man had bept not be trusted too near , the till of ids employer. The young men 1 . referred to so plainly in the sermon, are ! very angry because of this public scor' In*?. One of them expressed* his Intention of taking his name immediately off , the church books and of also expressing his opinion of the matter to the , preacher. t On last Thursday Jet.
