The dele gates were there to make a great rant and tear about Bardaley. They were there to try to make themselves and their constituents believe what has been adequately demonstrated to every intelligent resident of Pennsyl vania as false that Bardsley was fos tered, encouraged or protected in ills corrupt methods by the Republican party. The resolutions adopted at that con vention are circulated as a Bardsley bugaboo and the two candidates at the head of the ticket have been placed there simply to give an excuse for the circulation of the malicious, false and slanderous composition. "Where, in the name of heavens, does the Democratic party stand wben the subject of corrupt public ofliclals s la under discussion ?

FOSTER'S REFUNDING. The N. Y. Press says the unanimity with which the Democratic financial authorities speak slightingly of Sec. retary Foster's success In refunding the outstanding 4J per cent, bonds at 2 per cent, is simply an exhibition of their jealousy. They are like the people who believed that no good could come out ot INazaretu. Yet so low a rate of interest in a refunding operation has never before been reached in this country. We have been told by the Democratic press that money Is scarce, that free silver must bo adopted as a policy to tee 11 id more money for the country's needs; but the government finds money so plentiful that it can get over fifty millions at less than 2 per cent., and that, too, at a time when the same authority insists that the government is bankrupt. There is nothing so convincing as tho practical financial argument to be found in this transaction for refuting all their stories about the treasury finances. The gov ernment can pay dollar for dollar what It owes, and everybody knows it, and its credit is so good that it can borrow money lower than any nation on the globe. And Republican finan cial management and legislation have 1 made this possible ! MININGMATTERS ITEMS INTERESTING TO BOTH MINERS AND OPERATORS. THE PACKER GOLLIERY EXPLOSION The Firo Boss Exonerated A Miner Oonaured Tho Truo Story of John Kelly's Sul cido Out at Last. Tho inquest in tho case of Anthony Mishkol and Josoph Taifer, who wcro killed by an explosion of gas In Packer colliery, No. 4, on August 22nd, last, has boon hold and after a full investigation tho firo boss was exonerated from blamo, Eight witnesses were examined, John Ooyle, Michnol O'Donnell, Nowton Fritz, Patrick Noone, James Hope, Anthony Sonovich, "William Hambry and Mathias Sutmfkoy. They nil aworo that thoy hoard William llainbridgo, the lira boss, toll the deceased not to so into tho east Mo until ho would return from tho west side, as thoro was gas in tho plnco. The jury rendered a verdict tothofl- lowing effect! "That tho said Anthony Mlshkel and Joseph Taifer camo to their deaths by being burnod by an explosion of gas ignited by themselves at Pankorcol liory, No. 4 That tho deaths wero brought on through tho neglect and carelessness of tho doceasod by going Into tho broast after having been notified by tho firo boss not to do so and no blame can bo attached to tho company." An interesting development during tho inquest was tho statement by Mathias Surmskoy, onoof tho witnesses, that, after being refused a miners' certificate In this district, ho went to Centralia and bought one for ono dollar without being required to star.d an oxatninatlon. A MINER CENSURED. Result of a Suffolk Oolliory Caso After hearing testimony in tho caso of John Domashefski, a Hungarian who re elded in this town, and was killed by a (all of coal in the Suffolk colliory, the jury summoned by Deputy Coroner Uronnan docided that tho man met his death through the neglect and carolessness of tho minor, Jacob Gillespio. According to tho evidence, Gillespio had tho docoased and another Polo employed as laborers. They had drilled two holes and after ono was fired Gillespie, without going up to see tho roult of the shot or dressing the place, sent tho laborers to fire tho ot or hole. While they wero in tho act ot doing this a lump of coal fell from tho top. Domashefski was crushed to death and the other laborer had ono of his legs crushed Tho latter is in tho Minors' Hospital. Gillespie told tho jury that ho wont up and looked at tho place, but John Trovo than and Frank John sworo positively that Gillespie romained below with them and sent tho laborers up to firo tho other hole, WORRIED TO DEATH. Tho Secret of John Kelly's Sul- cido Revealed. While talking about recent mino accl dents this morning a prominent gentleman of town said lo a Hkkald reporter, "It Is surprising that fatal accidents in tho mines are not much greator in number than they are. I watch the accidents closely and I find ths.t in nine casos out of ton they are attributable to tho neglect and carelessness of tho minors and laborers themselves, Did you hear of the developments In the caso ot John Kelly, who committed suicide at Turkey Run a few weeks ago? At tho time of tho euicido it was said that tho man was driven to commit the rash act by worrlment over want of work, Tho facts are these, they are interesting, foe thoy show how some men In tho mines will persist In violating tho mine laws: One day mine Inspector Stein wont over to a mino near Gtlberton. Tho placo was full of gas and tho minors were under strict orders not to work In it without safety lamps, previously locked In the colliory office. Tho Inspector walkod into Kelly's breast and said, "Give ma a match; I loft mino at home?" Kelly at onco drew some matches from his pocket and handed them to the Inspec tor, who accepted them and then called in the boss, saying, "What is the use of bav ing safety lamps in such places as thli wben your men bring in their pipes and matches 1" The boss scolded Kolly, whosaid, "There are plenty mon in this mine doing wurso than that." "I don't think anything wotso can bo done," said tho Inspector, "but what Is it thoy do ?' Kolly refused to state what ho had ref erence to, but the following night ho called at Inspector Stein's office and made known. Of courfe tho Inspector acted upon the information furnished blm. Subsequently the mon In tho mines took rovengo by taunting Kolly for rqueallng and he was obliged to leave tho mine. The taunts wura continued, however, and Kolly's life was made unbearable. At last ho resolved to commit tho desperate act. POLITICAL. There was no bun politics at IUrrisburg on Thursday I Host of tho delegates hardly know what they went to llarrieburg for on Thursday.
