Plan to Promote Town Interests
a Generous One.
It will bo gratifying to the people of town
to know that one of Its hoino Industries
wliloh has been Idle for several months Is
about to bo put In operation again. The
plant is that of tho Shenandoah Manufacture
ng Company, located on North Emerick
street. It was formerly devoted to the man-
facturo of caps. According to the plans now
about to be put in operation It will hereafter
bo tlovuteil to tho Manufacture of shirts.
It will be rcmcnibered that, shortly after
the old plant suspended operations, thcro wss
public snlo and ultimately a syndicate.
beaded by Dr. J S. Klstler, of town,
secured full control of the old company's
stock. Subsequently Dr. Klstler made an
nounccment through the press outlining a
plan tending to re-establish the industry and
offering to give personal financial and otbor
id in that direction. Tho oQ'er seemed to
pass unnoticed by local people and Dr.
klstler then took slips towards getting out
sido manufacturers interested in tbe plant.
Tho movement in this direction did not bring
the results desired, whereupon Dr. Kistler
decided to take hold of the plant single
handed and It has culminated In, arrange
ments for a shirt factory to be operated undor
the old uamoof the Shenandoah Manufactur
ing Company.
Iu conversation with a reporter last even-
ug Dr. Klstler said that there Is plenty of
unemployed girl labor hero and if It can be
given employment It will be so much better
for tbo borough. Ho will open the factory
next Monday with 32 marhinos and 35 girls.
A forewoman will bo employed to teach tbe
girls and make them operatives, and there
will bo a man employed to superintend tbe
factory, while Dr. Kistler will be the presi
dent and general manager of the concern.
My solo ambition in this movement."
said Dr. Kistler. "Is to give tho borough
homo Industries. If lean make this one a
success I am sure others will follow and we
will then have something in tho place
for the working people to depend upon
othor than tbe collieries, in which
only male labor can be employed.

shall bo satisfied to maintain the plant for
tho first three mouths as an experiment, even
if I must go down into my own pocket to
help pay some of the expenses. If. at the
expiration of sixty days, the plaut gives
promise of becoming self supporting I will
double tbe number of machines, and, if the
prospects continue favorable, I shall Increase
the number of machines from time to
tlmo to oue hundred and fifty, or more.

Philadelphia lady who will instruct

a New York firm which will furnish all goods
for manufacture and take the products of the
plant off ray bands and put them on the
Dr. Klstler Is certainly setting an excellent
example for other people in town who have
money to Invest and liave tbe welfare of the
borough at heart. On no previous occasion
has any other townsman made so liberal and
substantial an advance in tbe interests of tbe
working people of tbe borougb, single banded
and without tho assistance of any of his
equally well-to-do townsmen, or a Board of
Trade. Tho effort Is deserving of the highest
commendation and tbe community will unite
in the hope that it will bo as successful as the
promoter desires it to bo.

The December Letter of the Anthracite
Uoat Oprraturs' Association,
The past month has fullv Instlfled thn nro.
dictions made during tbe lummor as to a
scarcity of fuel. At every point of the mar.
Lot this difficulty has been experienced.
From Maine to Minnesota there have been
complaints, and it has been only because of
toe moderate weatber that the shortsgo has
not caused more serious consequences.
rnces nave beeu arm. as iiilubt be ex
pected under these condition-, aud conces
sions have been rare. Such coal as lus gone
torwaru on old omen lias not been sufficient
to disturb tbo market at any point, nor has
the announcement of the construction of a
new railroad from tho mines to tide been a
disturbing factor iu prices.
1 be Western market has been favored
the mild weather which bis permitted ship
ments by the lakes, but tho scarcity of vessels
and high prices charged have forced an un
usual proportion of coal to go by rail. The
same difficulty as to vessels has been experi
enced in the New England market. Beceutly,
vessel rates irom llalllmore to Boston were
f 2 00 per ton, htid a schooner from Philadel
phia to Augusts, Maine, received f3.50 por

With the beginning of December the com.
panics find themselves unable to fill all of the
orders offered for prompt delivery. Even al
lowing for tho tonnage available now that
lake navigation has closed it is doubtful
whether the total of December deliveries will
equal the demand. This would have serious
results, especially in the Eastern market
where the dealers have had an extraordinary
nemanu lor anthracite, owinz to tbe search v
of bituminous coat. The quantity of coal go
ing to market represents the maximum nro-
duc.ion. There are neither cars or motive
power to move a greater tonnage, and further,
it there was abundant transportation, the
mines are so hampered by the cenoral scarcity
of miners and laborers, that they would not
bo able to add to their output, and in the
event of cold weather there are no surplus
stocks which can be drawn upon.
With the demand greater than tho buddIv.
it is evident that no lower prices can Ira
looked for until Spring, since even should
the working time in January, February and
March be increased, tho excess n.-er the
normal consumiition during these months
would not be more than sufficient to meet tbe
extraordinary demaud and bring Mocks to a
safe amount.

tured Near Mnlaequi,
They Commit! nl Twenty-five Mnr
ilcr. In nx Mnn- Hnn, nml It la Hi
prctPil That Titer Will He Sprcillly
Tried anil Promptly Shot.
Mnlla, Doc. 13. Colonel Smith,
with a detachment ot tho Seventeenth
Infantry, surrounded and captured In
a village near Malasqul a party of
guerrillas, who had made their head
quarters Uicto. The party lueludd
the band whloh ansosslnated seven of
ficials at Malanqnl for friendliness to
the Americans.
AU are Insurgents who became ban
dita when the disintegration ot the
Filipino army begnn. They kept the
country around Mnlasqul In a state of
terror for several weeks, and commit
ted 25 murders In less than that num
ber of days. When they were caught
they woro promptly sent to General
MacArthirr's headquarters nt Haynm
bang by trnln. It Is expected that they
will be speedily tried and either shot
or hunp, as an example, If convicted.
The whole country north of San
Fernnndo and between San Fernando
and Manila, except within tho perma
nent lino of troops around the city,
and the closely patrolled stretches of
railroad, swarms with similar bands.
Probably they will be Increased by
men from Pllnr's army, many of whom
are making their way south to join
me insurgent force in Cavlte province.
These people, for the most part, suc
ceeded In dodging the troops of Gen
eral urant. Colonel Dell and Colonel
Hood, who are scouring the country
for thom. They devote their energies
to ambushing commissary wagons and
to picking up soldiers who leave their
commands. Uvory dny some wagon
train Is fired upon or somo soldier dis
appears. General Wheeler's secretary,
Mr. Garrett, was disarmed and slash
ed by a boloman almost within sight
of headquarters, his assailant pursuing
him almost Into tho headquarters
The policy of these ruffians Is to
make the country uninhabitable for
Americans and to frighten natives Into
refraining from giving any assistance
to tho Americans, as well as to compel
the Inhabitants to support the Insur
Frequently they raid and loot towns.
The brother of tho president of Imus
went outside tho town the other dny
to harvest some rice. He was captured
by his compatriots, accused of being
a spy and executed.
Only a small proportion of the Insur
gent arms have been surrendered, and
the problem of suppressing this guer
rilla warfare Is anything but easy of
solution. Some of the American of
ficers think It worse than fighting In
dians, owing to the difficulties of the
country and the trouble of locating the
onomy, who resort, when hard pressed,
to the amlgo dodge and hide their guns.
Some of the Americans favor the Is
suance of a proclamation declaring nil
natives found with arms to be bandits,
punishable as criminals. Instead of be
ing treated as prisoners of war.
Information hns been recolved nt
headquarters that BOO Spanish prison
ers have been shipped from Vlgan to
Manila, and thnt 1,500 others have been
assembled at Vlgan, Including General
Pena. Probably these are Spaniards
released by General Young's troops In
