VOL. V. No. 21. DEMOCRATS IN SESSION. AN EXCITING BUT HARMONIOUS CON VENTION HELD. Mines for Congress, Wright for Senator, Waiters for Sheriff, Russell for Record er, Trimmer for Coroner and Crockett for Surveyor. The Democrats of Luzerne county had their annual outing on Tuesday at Wilkes-llarre. The close and exciting contests for the nominations every year were repeated again, and the strife for office was waged as hard as in any pre vious campaign. The delegates to tho convention were on the ground from Monday afternoon, and the all-night curbstone caucuses vented the uncer tainty of what the day would bring forth. The making of the whole ticket hinged upon the nominees for congress and sheriff at first, but the candidates for recorder of deeds made their influence felt before morning. Between McGinty and Ilines the fight was exceedingly bitter and the friends and supporters of both men worked hard among the delegates to obtain votes. In the morning the chances favored Mc- Ginty and liis friends claimed lie would lie named with nearly a score of votes to spare. Ilines, however, never gave up the fight for an instant, and his men were everywhere watching for an op portunity to persuade McGinty's dele gates to desert. That ttiev succeeded was shown afterward hy the" vote. For sheriff Tom English and William Walters were tho leading candidates, but the strength of Dotter and Wernet was unknown and upset several calcula tions. About midnight Walters and liussell made a combination that seem ingly settled their nominations, but this slate was smashed the next morning, and English's chances again were in the ascendancy. Russell iiad several dele gates of his own, but was not able to get them to throw their votes to Walters until it was proven to them that any other combination would result disas trously to the hopes of the candidate. The slate was mended again before dinner, hut even then it would not go through unlesß some of the other two candidates' delegates would go into it after the first ballot. Enough promises from Wernet and Dotter men were se cured to givo them hopes and the Walters people again took the field pro claiming victory. The delegates thought it was about time to organize, and the work was sus pended for a short while. .Senatorial Convention. The convention to name a candidate for senator was a tame affair. Scarcely one-half the delegates could he induced to leave the neighborhood of the hotels, and those who went to the hall rushed the business through with all possible speed. A boomlet for Matt Long was hatched on Monday night, hut the lower end men were divided and it died before daybreak. Some of the Foster men were anxious that his name should be pre sented, Riid were greatly disappointed when they learned they could not pay him their respects until some other day. The only name offered was that of J. Kidgway Wright, of Wilkes-liarre, and lie was nominated by acclamation. Morning Session. Vice Chairman John S. McGroarty called the convention to order at 10.40 A. M„ and after roll-call by Secretary T. C. Mullally the committees on resolu tions, permanent organization and con tested seats were selected. Nothing further was done at this session. The delegates were anxious to return to the battle-field around the Square, and a motion to adjourn until 2 P. M. went through without a dissenting voice. ' Very little work was done hy the heelers before dinner. Everybody seem ed to he waiting for the afternoon, when the delegates might he in a more per suasive humor. At 1 o'clock the groups began gathering again. No change was noticeable in the crowd regarding the McGinty-Hines fight. The former's forces ivero confident and appeared to lie resting on their arms, hut the Mines contingent was as active and smiled sweetly when questioned about the out look. They wore doing effective work and very little of it became known to tho recorder until it was too late to re pair the break. Walters' men also had a bright look about them, and a little investigation showed that a heavy inroad had been made during noon hour on the English delegation. A counter-assault was made hy the latter upon the crowd, but it met with little success. Men who had work ed for English all night were now doubt ful whether he would strengthen the ticket as much as Walters, and from this position they found it easy to shift under the Sugarloaf candidate's banner. When the loss was counted up English still thought lie had enough to carry him through, and it was with this feel ing of sure success that all the candi dates and delegates started again for Music Hall at 2 o'clock. Afternoon Session. After calling the convention to order the committee on permanent organiza tion reported as follows: Chairman—John T. Lenahan. Vice presidents—lsaac Livingstone, F. C. Mosier, Henry Oplinger, P. L. Liudeman, Michael Lynch and Geo. W. Drum. Secretaries—Tliomas D. Sliea, M. H. McAniffe, Geo. Lubrecht.C. F. Mcllugh, John S. Harding and T. C. Mullally. Tellers—L. G. Ilart, A. C. Campbell, A. C. Good, Hyron Shoemaker and C. F. Bohan. Mr. Lenahan took his seat after a neat speech, and when the committees report ed he called for nominations for con gress. Joseph J. McGinty, of Wilkes- Barre, was nominated by A. M. McNulty, of South lleberton, who made a short but forcible address, giving reasons for McGinty's nomination and predicting a rousing majority from the fourth dis trict for the whole ticket if its choice was named. He was liberally applauded wlien he concluded. Hon. William 11. Hines, of Wilkes-Barre, was nominated wwum*. i n tiwaawar by John McGahran, of the same city. The ballot was: Ifines 1151 McGinty .. 97 The result was received with great applause and cheers, and it was several minutes before the chairman could restore order among the delegates and spectators. Voting; for Sheriff. The next nomination was for sheriff. William Walters, of Sugarloaf township, was nominated by P. F. Fallon, of Hazleton; Thomas English, of Pittston, by P. J. Doyle, of Pittston; Nathan Dotter, of Wilkes-Ilarre, by P. C. Honey well, and Edward Wernet, of Nanticoke, by T. D. Shea. The excitement rose during roll-call, and as one or another favorite forged ahead it was loudly cheered. The ballot was: Walters 681 English 60j Dotter 47 Wernet 33 There being no choice the second was taken, as follows: English 71 Walters 684 Dotter 43 Wernet 314 Wernet was dropped on tho third ballot, and the vote stood : English 86 Walters 77 Dotter 47 LnHt Ballot for Slierifl'. Dotter was dropped, and the fourth and last ballot brought on the most exciting incidents of the day. Everything was in an uproar as the delegates and friends of each candidate ran to and fro, advis ing, threatening and coaxing one another to change. When order was restored Secretary Mullally began calling the roll, and as each delegate rose and an nounced his choice the vote was greeted with applause from his side. When Hazleton and Hazle township gave solid delegations for Walters the latter went far ahead, but English was up and pass ed him again when Pittston and neigh boring districts voted. It was nip and tuck until the two men came to Wilkes- Barre, where Walters took a big lead— too much to be overcome this year. The result was: Walters 11l English.. 102 The nomination of Walters was made unanimous on a motion of Mr. English. Russell for Recorder. For recorder of deeds Michael C. Rus sell, of Edwardsville, and Dr. E. A. San tee were named, but before the balloting had gone far Santee's name was with drawn and Russell's nomination made unanimous. For coroner a spirited fight had been going on all day, and if it were not for the lug battles monopolizing the field it would have been very interesting. Dr. Trimmer, Jr., of Harvey's Lake, a son of Dr. Trimmer, of White Ilaven, had the inside track upon Dr. Gillespie, of Avoca, and Dr. Locker, of Plymouth. Many of the delegates had left, but the lower end men stayed in order to make certain of Trimmer. The vote was: Trimmer 126 Gillespie 49 Locker 13 For surveyor James B. Crockett, of Ross township, was nominated by'accla mation. Resolutions. The resolutions adopted are as fol lows: The regularly accredited delegates of the Democratic party of Luzerne county, in coun ty convention assembled, hereby resolve: First, That the Democratic candidates for president nnd vice president of the United States have by their honorable, capable and patriotic services in the past conclusively prov ed their title to the respect, confidence and sup port of the American people. In G rover Cleve land, of New York, and Oen. Adli E. Steven son, of Illinois, the Democratic party has stan dard bearers whose private and public records are amplest guarantee that the interests of the country will be safe and must prosier in thetai keeping. Second, That the platform adopted at Chica go points the only straight path to continued national greatness, industrial ihmicc and gen eral prosperity. Its manly utterances cover every pending important political Issue and are accorded our unqualified approval. Third, That the many strikes and industrial disturbances of the recent part were the direct result of the odious Republican policy, pur sued through ull the history of that party, of legislating exclusively for the enlargement ot' the profits of capital, the multiplication of monopolies, the consequent discouragement of individual enterprise nnd the filling of the country with hordes of the lowest classes of Eastern and Southern Europeans and Asiatics, whose servile presence is a constant and dan gerous menace to the prosperity of the Ameri can workingman, und the safety of the Ameri can nation. Tho five hundred strikes in the so-called protected industries that have follow ed the enactment of tho MoKinley tariff, the fact that never for one moment since that enactment has the country been without one or more such strikes., is sufficient nnd conclu sive evidence of the demoralizing nnd destruc tive tendencies of such legislation. Fourth, That we pledge the votes of the Democracy of Luzerne solidly to the candi dates this day nominated und commend them us men fully fitted for the lmsitions for which they have been severally named. Candidates for the Legislature. The Democratic convention of the sec ond legislative district met at Wyoming on Tuesday. J. S. Koons, of Hunting don, was nominated for representative. The Democrats of the first legislative district, comprising the city of Wilkes- Barre, nominated Captain William H. B rod head for representative on Monday night. _____ Announcement of Coming Events.

CHANCELLOR M'GILL DECIDES THE READING DEAL TO BE SO. He Urants a Preliminary Injunction and Under Its Provisions the New Jersey Central Road Must Resume Control of All Ita Properties and Franclilaea. TRENTON, Aug. 2ft.— Chancellor McGill's ilociaion in the case of tho state against the railroads forming tho Reading coal combine has boon filed. The state's contentions that the lease of the Central to the Port Reading is illegal; that the tripartite agreement is in violation of law, and the combine is against the policy of tho state, because it tends to tho monopo ly of a public nocessity, aro all upheld and the preliminary injunction prayed for is granted. In the course of his decision the chancellor says corporate bodies that eugago in public occupations are created by tho state upon the hypothesis that they will be a public bonoflt. They enjoy privileges that indi viduals cannot have. While the state con fers special privileges upon the favorites, it at the same time exacts from them duties which also tend to tho public welfare. Such corporations hold their powers in trust for the public weal. Disguise and Kvaslon. The chancellor says the attornoy gonoral, on behalf of the people, has the election in a case of this kind to proceed at law to for feit the charter or in equity for a restraint of the excess. There aiff peculiar features in the transaction that evince a public dan ger much more serious than appears in the mere transfer of corporate duties to per formance by a foreign corporation. The parties interested constitute two of the six great anthracite coal carriers of the coun try. Through the leasing of the Ohio Valley three of these are controlled hy the combi nation. The proof shows that there arc lo calities in the state which formerly had the advautago of competition between these allied roads, but now are subject to tho monopoly which this lease affords. It is true that the co-oporation of the other coal roads has not been secured. By this leaso only one competition is silenced, and only a little more than one-half of the entire coal region is controlled. It is only the second step in the direction of monop oly, the first being the lease of tho Lehigh Valley railroad. It is to be remembered, however, that the attorney general may have hiß injunction vhen the ultra vires act tends or yt nature to produce public injury. •" * - Tho aoßwers deny that either the Phila delphia and Reading or the Central owns any coal lands or produces or deals in coal. That is true; but at the same time it is ad mitted that the Roading owns a majority of the capital stock of the Reading Coal and Iron company, and that tho Central owns a majority of the capital stock of the Le high and Wilkesbarro Coal company. What is this but disguise and evasion! Whatever may be the nominal ownership or the legal title for the substantial purposes of the in jury apprehended and tho attorney gen eral's complaint, the railroad companies stand lis the owners of tho coal land in this court. Disastrous Monopoly. The chancellor says that while tho denials of this may be literally true, such allega tions without explanation and in tho face of the facts adverted to, savor of an evasion which disentitles them to that force which is usually accorded to the denials of responsive answers. Upon preliminary hearings here, the chancellor continues, we have great ooal dealers complaining that they are not suffi ciently paid for the product of their mines, combining so that already they control more than one-half of the ooal fields upon which this state depends for fuel, and look ing to tho co-operation of tho remaining anthracite coal producers to effect u change in tho price of their output so that they may have more satisfactory returns from their investments. To say that those conditions do not tend to a disastrous monopoly in coal would bo an insult to intelligence. It is possible that such a monopoly may be used as the defend ants suggest, to introduce economies and cheapon coal, but it does violence to our knowledge of human nature to expect such a result. In conclusion the chancellor says: "Tho commodity in which those companies deal is a necessary of life in this state. It is the principal fuel of its homes and factories. The slightest increase in its price iB felt by a population of hundreds of thousands of persons, for their necessity compels them to pay that increase. If once a complete monopoly be established by the destruction of competition, whether that be through leaso or co-operation, tho promoters and Bharers in it may have whatever price their cupidity suggests. Tho disaster which will follow cannot be measured. It will per meate tho entire community—furnaces, forges, factories and homes—leaving in its trail murmurs of discontent with a govern ment which will tolerate, it, and all the other evil effects of oppression." The Scope of the Injunction. When, therefore, it appears that such corporation is unmindful of its plain duty nd acts prejudically to the public in order to make undue gains and profits for its stockholders, it uses its power in a manner not contemplated by the law which con fers them. Tho lease to the Port Reading was made not only without legal sanction, but in defiance of an expressly prohibitory statute. The chancellor defines the bounds of the injunction which he grants, saying, "I will continue the present injunction to final hearing, adding to it, however, the further direction that the defendants, their officers and agents do desist from further perform ing and carrying into effect the leaso and tripartite agreement; and that the Port Reading and the Philadelphia and Reading companies do desist and refrain from con tinuing to control the property and fran chises of the Central, and from otherwise Intermeddling therewith; and that the Cen tral do refrain from permitting tho Port Raadiug and the Philadelphia and Reading to Use, control or operate ita roads and franchises; and that the Central do again resume control of all its propertyjond Xrau- Ch **cLlaeiL P®*' o * ol * oo ® °* 1111 ita'corporate -NE COUNTY, PA., SEPTEMBER 1, 1892. LUZERNE REPUBLICANS. Aspirants for the Nominations Skirmish ing Arouml After Delegates. The Republican political situation is summed up in the following brief dis patch, sent out from Wilkes-Barre on Monday: The Republican delegate elections will be held next Saturday, and the leaders of the party are beginning to make some stir in the fight. No new candidates have appeared for congress, and lion. C. B. Foster lias alone been making a canvass of tho county. Re publican sentiment is stronger than ever in favor of Hon. Charles A. Miner, and, although he is making no effort what ever for delegates, it is evident that a great many districts will send Miner men to the convention, and these will support him on the belief that he would he the stronger candidate and the more likely to win. For the Republican nomination for sheriff there will he a contest. The can didates who are working for delegates are James Norris, of Wilkes-liarre; E. W. Garrison, in Shickshinny; Dr. Sul fide, of Nanticoke and John McMurtrie, of Wilkes-Barre, with the probability that Phil Boyle, of Hazleton, will turn up ill the convention with a strong fol lowing from the lower end, although his candidacy will be handicapped hy the fact that Hazleton will ask for the sena torship. There is but little contention for the legislative nominations in any of the districts, and in some of tliein there will be no contests worth mentioning. Killed at Kbervale. Francesca Spina, an Italian, working for King A Scott at Kbervale, was killed on Tuesday morning while riding up the slope. lie was sitting in the car with several others who were going home from tho night shift, and at one place in the slope the roof is only about ten inches above the cross-piece of the car. When passing under this Spina rose up. lie was caught and thrown to tho back end of the car, and passed between the roof and the cross-piece, doubling him up and causing instant death. Contrac tor Scott notified Inspector Lewis, who ordered Deputy Coroner Buckley to em panel a jury and make an investigation. The following jury was chosen: J. P. McDonald, J. J. Gillespie, John Welsh, Frank O'Donnell, Francis Brennan, Dominick O'Donnell. They viewed the scene of the accident, heard the testi mony of the men who were riding on the car with Spina and returned a ver dict of accidental death. Going to tho Worhl'H Fair. The miniature coal mine and breaker at Glen Onoko, owned and operated for the oast nine years by Lyman H. Howe, of Wilkes-Barre, has been purchased by the Philadelphia A Reading Railroad Company. The purpose is to ship it to Chicago for exhibition at the worlds fair. It is a remarkable piece of mechanism. The process of mining and preparing anthracite coal for market is showm in a miniature form, and it will prove a great attraction at Chicago. Reading Relief Department. Arrangements have recently been made by the Reading Railroad to extend the Relief Department of the road so as to include the employes of tho Lehigh Valley. Circulars showing the terms anu methods of the department have been issued and the Lehigh Valley peo pel asked to join. This is looked upon as the first step to break up. the labor unions on the road. The emyloyes will he enrolled as fast as the necessary ex aminations can bo made. Special Meeting. A special meeting of the Tigers Athletic Association will be held on Friday even ing, September 2, at 7.30 o'clock. Plans of the new building to be erected for the organization will be decided upon, and every member must attend. E. J. GAFFNKY, Secretary. •♦Tales from Town Topics."
