Tim Township Convention Meets, Adopts Utile* ami riaces Itself Square Be fore the People on the Issue of the Day-A Ticket Nominated, etc. As per announcement in la.st week's TRIBUNE, the delegates to the township convention met in the Highland school house at 2.15 p. m. Monday, and the i convention was called to order by District Chairman, Patk. O'Donnell. The Secre tary called the roll of delegates, and no contest being made, the convention pro ceeded to the election of a permanent Chairman. John 11. Carr and John Hurley were named. Mr. Carr was elected. Frank Sweeney was elected Secretary hy acclamation. On taking the chair Mr. Carr thanked the delegates in a good speech for the honor bestowed on him, and counseled them upon the duties that lay before them. He called attention to some of the wrongs which the township is labor ing under, and requested that the con vention would place itself before the people as opposed to such abuses ami to take up measures that'would place the finances of the township on a good solid basis, so as to enable our children to re ceive a good education, lie closed by advising that harmony and good feeling would prevail during the business of the convention. Committees on resolutions and rules were appointed, and a recess of one-half hour was taken to enable the committees to meet. On reassembling the committee on reso lutions, through its Chairman, reported 1 the following resolutions, which were agreed to: We the undersigned committee on resolutions, do respectfully report as fol lows: Whereas, The Democratic party, true to its history, has taken an advanced position to force within the range of practical politics, grave questions of pub lic policy that affect the material welfare and liberties of the whole people. Resolved, That we, the Democratic voters of Foster township in convention assembled, reaffirm our allegiance to > Democratic principles, believing with that sterling Democrat, Grover Cleve land, that"publie office is a public trust." That the tariff, as a protecting medium, is adelusionand a fraud—that it restricts industry, hampers trade and makes pos sible the various trusts and combines that, speculate in the necessaries of life. That indirect and unjust methods of taxation has reduced the wealth-producers to the position of dependent mendicants, beg- j ging for permission to live and toil. We believe that industrial emancipation de mands that trade between this grand Re public and the nations of the earth should be as free as trade between Foster town ship and Freeland Borough. We congratulate the Democracy of Pennsylvania on the re-election of ( hair man Kisner; on the prospects for a bet ter political organization; on the advanc ed stand taken by the Democratic press in favor of tariff and ballot reform, and j pledge ourselves to support no man for representative, who is not a known ad vocate of those reforms. We deplore the political condition of things that obtain the Middle Coal Field Poor District, and denounce the laws that govern elections in said district, as cum bersome and impracticable. We believe that if we are to have a clean and econ omic administration of the affairs of the j district, the laws must be so amended as to enable lis to elect a Board of Directors in the same manner that we elect our ('ounty Commissioners. We question the j motives and denounce the methods, by j which the will of the voters of this end i of the Poor District is sought to lie upset, and pledge to Hugh O'Donnell. the regu lar nominee of the people of this end of the district, our hearty and undivided support. The management of our local affairs in Foster township demands the serious at tention of all good citizens. We are a community of wealth-producers, clothed with absolute power in the management of our local affairs; yet, despite the fact of the enormous increase in population and wealth of our township, the basis of our taxable valuation appears to remain stationary. The poor man is taxed to the limit of the law for being industrious ami thrifty, while his children are deprived of the benefit? of a common school edu cation, —a wrong perpetrated hy society, for which society must eventually suffer. We denounce the work of the present Republican Assessor, of Foster township, as unjust and cowardly. We demand that 10 months shall constitute the mini mum school term, and that taxes he levied on the gross valuation of the town ship. We protest against the use of money in politics, and denounce the buyer anil seller of votes, as unworthy of suffrage; a danger that threatens to enslave the people and curtail their liberties. Believing that the only and best method of calling public attention to un just and oppressive laws, is by enforcing the same; we protest against the con tinued violations of the law by the.School Board, of Foster township, in levying 20 mills for school purposes. Signed : GEORGE MCGEE, 1 FRANK SWEENEY, j DANIEL CRAIO, >Com. PATK. GALLAGHER, | Trios. O'DONNELL, J The committee on rules reported the following, which were adopted and will go into effect next year: 1.

Candidates for delegates and town ship officers must be men who have voted the regular Democratic ticket for at least two years preceding. i 3. The township convention shall be held on the third Tuesday of each year. 4. No contest shall be recognized in , the convention unless a written protest he entered, signed by twelve reputable Democratic citizens of the township. | o. The township committee shall con sist of one member from each election dis . trict, and shall be chosen at the same time and place and in the same manner ; as delegates to the township convention. They shall meet and organize on the lirst Saturday preceding the convention. (5. The duties of the township com mittee shall be to levy and collect the legitimate expenses of running cam paign and to levy an assessment nccord- I ingto the remuneration of the respective offices, and during their term of office shall meet every three months to discuss ! and advance the interest of the party in the township. They shall giveall ne'ces -1 sary information to the Chairman of the district and the county committees in I relation to the status Of the party in their respective district. 7. They shall turn over to their sue- ' cessors any money, books, papers held by them. 8. Any Democrat aiding or abetting I , the election of a Republican, over the regular Democratic nominee, shall not be eligible as a candidate before the town ship convention for a period of two years from the time of said aiding or abetting. 9. In the interest of clean politics and good government, it is necessary that the delegates in convention assembled la free from intimidation and from the con taminating influence of the "Boodlers" and "Heelers." We recommend that future conventions be held with closed doors; all persons except delegates and duly authorized reporters being excluded. 10. The township committee shall en- j force these rules, and decide all ques- ' tions of party discipline. 11. These rules can only be amended i by a two-third vote of the convention.

The anthracite coal trade continues! very dull for the domestic sizes and as active as ever for the furnace and small steam sizes, which have become very scarce. The price for pea coal has been I advanced to $firstname.lastname@example.org the mines, and j most of the shippers are disinclined to | hook new contracts for that size, as they ' have already more orders than they can | supply. Some of the iron furnaces in the Lehigh and Schuylkill Valleys have begun to use broken coal to make up the I shortness in the supply of lump and j steamboat sizes, and this will ofToril some i relief to the market, which is gorged i with a large accumulation of broken, i j egg, stove and chestnut sizes. The ! prices for the domestic sizes of an thracite are now weaker than they have been nl any time since last May. j Shading from the circular liguresis being done openly, even by the larger mining | and carrying eonipanios. The Heading Company is selling to everybody at 10 cents per ton below the circular prices, ami the agents of the Pennsylvania Ilaii | roil i s coal companies are reported as selling their anthracite at 20((/25 cents , per ton below the circular prices. C'oxe ! Ilros. & Co. are said to lie offering the product of their collieries at the follow ing prices at the mines: Broken and egg Ist', in per ton, stove $2.25. and chestnut $2.15. The Wyoming and Lehigh indi- J vidua! operators have unsettled the New ' York and New Kngland markets by j openly selling stove coal at a cutof from j 40 to 50 cents per ton, and in some in stances at a greater concession, f. o. b. i New York harbor. The total amount of anthracite coal sent to market for the week ending February I, as reported bv the several carrying r< mpanies, was "512,447 tons, compared with 539,094 tons in the corres ponding wiek last year, a decrease of [ 20,047 tons.
