VOL. V. No. 22. POWDERLY ON THE DEAL. ANOTHER SCATHING LETTER FROM THE MASTER WORKMAN. Through the "K. of L. Journul" He Shown How the ltankrupt Heading IH Itcing .Saved—Pennsylvania's Derelict Officials—McLeod Asked for Law. When the Reading combine wasform cd last winter, the argument was put forward that the price of coal would not be advanced. _ The announcement was made by the promoters of the scheme that the movement was in the interest of economy, and that the cost of production would bo cheapened. It would strike the average mortal that w hen the cost of production is lowered the price of the article produced should also decrease. If the price should not bo lowered, it Hliould not be advanced. Soon after the articles of consolidation were signed by the parties to the combination the price of coal was advanced 25 cents a ton. Every eye was turned toward the retail dealers of the large cities to see what action they would take, and the com biners pointed triumphantly to the in activity of the retailers, and with a "didn't-I-tell-you-so" Bort of a look, they went right on with the combine. Happening in New York soon after the price of coal was advanced last spring, I inquired how the thing was working. I discovered that, notwithstanding the fact that no public announcement had been made by the retail dealers, the price of each pail of coal had been ad vanced, and thnt the poor people who are obliged to purchase coal by the pail were being fined for the crime of those who effected the combination. Outside of the coal regions consumers of coal do not burn the article of fuel as liberally as we do here among the mines. In the large cities where rents arc high, every way, people are obliged to live on the second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh stories of tenement-houses. It is impossible to enjoy the use of a cellar, and coal cannot be stored away in quan ities. Those who burn it must buy every morning from the retailer or the corner groceryman. Coal sells at from 10 to 12 cents a pail. It takes ninety pails of coal to make a ton. When the price of coal advances it is not possible to divide a cent, and as a consequence, each time the consumer purchases a pail of coal he must pay at least 1 cent of an increase. When the combination advances coal 25 cents a ton, the consumer who buys by the pail must pay at the rate of 90 cents a ton more than before the price of the article was raised. Last week, on the morning of the 20th, the sales agents of the anthra cite coal companies made another ad vance of 25 cents a ton on the price of coal. Borne may ask why the retail dealers did not advance the price of coal last spring when the combination was form ed. The warm weather was approach ing, the necessity for coal was not so great, the sales were falling off, as they always do at that time of the year, and to run up the price of an article which the people could, just at that time, use sparingly, would not be regarded as a necessary or business-like act. In a few days the weather will begin to cool off and the consumption of coal will in crease, the necessities of the people will demand a greater supply of coal, and through that necessity they will have to pay a higher price for what they use. Twice since the combination was form ed has coal advanced, each time 25 cents. It is now half a dollar higher in price than it was on the day the Infamous Reading deal was consumated. Many people in New York will carry coal home, by the pail, at an increase of 2 cents per pail above last year's prices. At the rate of ninety pails to the ton, the New York consumer will pay just SI.BO more for every ton of coal consum ed during the coming winter. That is one side of it; the other, as we see it here in the coal regions, is not a bit better. With three coal-breakers standing where one can do the work, the miner and laborer around the mine will work short time as before. Coal has advanced 50 cents a ton, but the coal producer has received none of the benefits of that advance. It has gone into the pockets of those who own the coal mines, and they alone are the gainers. Did the Reading combine economize? It did. All the way from Scranton, the northern terminus of the Central Rail road of New Jersey, to tidwater, in New Jersey, workmen havte been discharged, put on short time and reduced in wages. Where some twenty-eight painters were required at the Ashley shops, but three are now engaged. The cars of the Cen tral Railroad, and other property of that company which requires paint, are al lowed to go unpainted. The enginesand rolling-stock of the Central are run, double as well as single turn, with little or no repair. The road-bed is allowed to go without the repairs which a regard for the safety of the traveling public should suggest. Material is ordered in the name of the Central Railroad of New Jersey and the Lehigh Valley Railroad, and is taken to the Reading Railroad proper and used in the service of that company. Everything that dishonest thought can suggest is being done to squeeze the last cent out of these two railroads in order to bolster up the tottering Reading, to pay up a part of its enormous indebted ness and to keep it from going to pieces. Should the Reading company dissolve, as it would have to do without outside aid, it would have to reorganize. Should it reorganize, it might become a subject for the srutiny of state officials, and they might discover that its reorganization would place it under and not above the tlie constitution. The businessmen who predicted pros perity under the rule of the Reading combine are now complaining of the fal ling off in trade. Where large numbers of men are discharged here and there they do not buy as plentifully as they formerly did, their trade is withdrawn jContinuoil oil I'ujce 4.) SEPTEMBER WEATHER, llev. Irl IlickH Tells People How the Cli inute Will Vary This Month. The following predictions of Septem ber weather are made for the remainder of the month by Weather Prophet Hicks: About the 7th a very warm wave may be looked for, advancing from the west, which will spread over the whole coun try. This warm wave will result from the equinox of Venus, central on the 7th, a regular storm period central on the Bth, and the approaching centre of the earth's the 21st. The period extends from about the oth to 12th, thus embracing and rein forcing the electrical and magnetic dis turbances which reach an annual crisis on and about the 11th of September. We may, therefore, expect during the period extending from the oth to the 12th, a phenomenal high temperature and a highly excited condition of the electrical forces in earth and sky, re sulting either in dangerous cyclones ami storms on sea and land, or in a prolong ed term of oppressive heat, ending in many earthquake disturbances. If heavy storms, with much thunder and lightning, occur about the danger days, 9th, loth and 11th, the tempera ture is almost sure to fall immediately after, almost to the freezing point in northern sections. A regular storm period is central on the 20th, the moon on the same day reaching her position between us and the sun, thereby adding much to all the disturbing causes mentioned at the last period and still in force. The forecasts and admonitions concerning the period, 7th to 12th, will apply with added em phasis to the period, 18th to 23d. During these days the snn will pass to the south of our equator, and all terres trial forces, excited by the unusual blending of causes, will rouse them selves up for the work of transferring the seasons to opposite endß of our world. Seas and coasts everywhere in the direction of our eouator will be ex posed to violent and dangerous storms. About the winding up of the period, 18th to 23d, blasts of polar air will ad monish us of the oncoming autumn. Some very cool weather will attend and follow the disturbances about this time. Reactionary tendencies centering on the 26th, will bring higher temperature and autumnal stormiuess. Another cool wave will follow up to about the 29th, when warmer weather and other storm indications will appear in the west, heralding the storms that will pass across the continent during the first days of October. Kxcursion to Scranton. Loyal Castle, No. 65, and Freeland Company, No. 29, Military Rank, Knights of the Mystic Chain, will run an excursion to Scranton on Tuesday, September 18. Visitors to Scranton on that day will not only have an oppor tunity to view the grand display made by the state fair and the Lackawanna county fair, which will then be open, but they can also see the monster parade to be held by the Knights of the Mystic Chain of Pennsylvania, in honor of the meeting of the select castle of the order. The Freeland P. O. S. of A. band will accompany the excursion and furnish music in the parade for the societies from here. The train will start from Ilazleton at 7.05 A. M., and will leave here at 7.30 A. M. The fare from Freeland and vi cinity has been made as low as possible. $1.60 for adults, and 60 cents for chil dren. Ample time will be given to visit friends and see the sights of the Electric City, as the excursion train will not leave there until 10 P. M. Tickets can be obtained from any of the members of the order. A refreshment car will ac company the excursion, and enough will be carried along to prevent anybody from being thirsty or hungry. "Equal Hlghts." Daniel F. Guinan, of Mahanoy City, has commenced the publication of a weekly paper devoted to the single tax theory. It iB appropriately named Eijital Rights, and there is no reason why it should not prosper in a field like the coal regions, where the curse of land monopoly has had full Bway and where the effects of the present tax system are so plainly shown in the enslavement of the people. The doctrine has many ad vocates and friends in this part of the state, especially in this vicinity, and they will undoubtedly give a hearty welcome to a good, aggressive organ, the columns of which can be entirely devoted to the discussion of the subject. That Mr. Guinan's paper will meet the require ments we are certain, and a continuation of the high standard of reading matter given in the first number will make Equal Rights a powerful ally in spread ing the light. It is only 50 cents a year. Good-Natured People in Monroe. Editing a paper in Monroe county must be pleasant job. Instead of sooth ing irate subscribers, angry advertisers, and listening to the tales of woe which mankind insist en telling, the editor of the Stroudsburg Times is accorded treatment which would make a Luzerne county scribe think he had reached the seventh heaven. Last week the Times editor gave a short account of the good things he gets, and it read as follows: A large box of wedding cake with the compliments of Mr, and Mrs. Milton Dennis Keller reached our office. It was a fine lot and not the little gilt-edged i postage stamp size that are sometimes handed out. They have our thanks and best wishes. Our friend, Prof. Wm. Coolbaugh, hied himself to Courtright's Pond, and by diligent and expert work he made a big catch. He had many "messes" for his friends. Among the fortunate was the big printer and the littlo printers, who are always open for such engage ments. He also has the wishes of the household. Without any bluster and Kansas cy clone noise about the matter, and much to our gratification, our granger friend, John Clark, quietly left a big roll of but ter at the place we pay rent for on the hill, the other day. There was no I. O. jj. attached to the tag either. FREELAND, LUZERNE COUNTY, PA., SEPTEMBER 5, 1892. SPECIAL CORRESPONDENCE. SANDY HUN, September 1. EDITOR TRIBUNE. —Friday evening, Au gust 126, marked an epoch !n Sandy Run politics. The occasion was the firing of tiie first gun in this presidential cam paign in Sandy Run, and that was by the Prohibitionists. The school house had been secured, and at the hour ap pointed, Rev. L. G. Jordan, of Phila delphia, addressed the vast throng that had assembled to hear this champion of Prohibition espouse bis cause. The school house was entirely filled, even standing room being at premium, whilst some of the unfortunates who bad been shut out, took their stations at the win dows as they listened to the orator. For two hours he held them spell-bound and swayed them as he willed. Now the crowd was so intent on his words, the falling of a pin could have been heard. Now they were wild with ap plause, making the building sbake. Never was a more enthusiastic political gathering at Sandy Run. That is the verdict of both friends and enemies of the cause so ably presented. If Sandy Run does not go Prohibition in the fall it certainly will not bo the Rev. Mr. Jordan's fault. At the close of the meet ing, subscriptions were taken fur the Penile, the Prohibition state organ, pub lished at Scranton, at the rate of a ten weeks' subscription for 10 cents, and sixty-three subscribers were secured. Rev. Spaulding, of Freeland; Rev. J. W. Bedford, of White Haven, and E. I). Nichols, Esq., of Wilkes-Barre, the county chairman, are expected to speak at Sandy Run during the campaign. Two Candidate**. The Repuilican delegates of the fourth legislative disirict will meet at Ilazleton to-day to nominate a candidate for re presentative. The only aspirant for the honor is Hon. William R. Jeffrey, of Freeland, the present incumbent, and he will be nominated by acclamation. The Republicans intend to makeastrong fight to hold the district in their column, and the popularity of their candidate will aid them considerably. B. F. Davis will represent Freeland in to-day's con vention. If the Democratic nominee does not want to be snowed under completely he should give a little of his attention to the North Side, and spend less time dabbling in affairs outside the district. A candi date for the legislature is not compelled to attend county conventions and go about lobbying in the interest of aspir ants there, in order that men of his own nationality shall be left off the ticket. It was a shrewd little game and was worked successfully, but it did not pass unnoticed last Tuesday. Labor Day Picnic. The annual Labor Day picnic will be held at Freeland Public Park this after noon and evening under the auspices of Local Assembly No. 335, composed of the employes of the Upper Lehigh Coal Company. The picnic will com mence at 3P. M. All kinds of refresh ments will be on sale at the park. De- Pierro's orchestra will supply the music, and as this will probably he the last picnic of the season in Freeland itshould be well attended. Church Contract Awarded. The committee of the Welsh Baptist church, at Freeland, has decided to pub lish the following in regard to the pro posals received for the building of the church: Mr. L. 11. Lentz has given the best satisfaction, therefore the commit tee decided unanimously to give the contract to Mr. Lentz. 'i'hos. K. Davis, W. E. Davis, W. 1. Evans, committee. lleuil Men lie ware.

The Fcarnots went to Honey Brook on Saturday and played an interesting game with the club of that place. They re turned victorious the score being 15 to 13. Jeaneßville did not seem to have much trouble in batting Gormley on Saturday, and with the aid of their ten hits they defeated Lansford, 0 to 2. The visitors made four hits off McCullough. The Fearnots and Silver Brook met at Drifton park yesterday afternoon. A great game was expected, but a few innings demonstrated the fact that Silver Brook is not in the same class with the I 1 earnots. The latter club played fine all through the game, the battery work of Boner and Boyle being very good, as was also the playing of Gaffney, of the Tigers, at third. Silver Brook people could not hit when hits were needed, and they were defeatod by a score of 10 to 0. At Freeland park next Sunday after noon the Freeland Tigers and Drifton Fearnots will come together for the fourth time this season. As our readers will remember, the last game between these clubs was a twelve-inning contest, which was won by Drifton with the score 3to 2. Both teams will bo streng thened as much as possible, and it is safe to say that the game will be played for all it is worth when they meet. The Tigers will have complete charge of the park during the game, and an admission of ten cents will be charged. No lover of base ball will refuse to pay this small amount to see a game between the Fear nots and Tigers. This is the first time the local club has ever charged, having played for several years at every oppor tunity, and it is only done now on ac count of the heavy expense which they will have to meet in a few months. OBSERVING LABOR DAY. ' Mountain Park's ltig Picnic This After noon—Other Demonstrations. The workingmen of Wyoming valley decided about six months ago to cele brate Labor Day at Mountain Park, and they are doing it with a vengeance this afternoon. The programme consists chiefly of addresses by prominent labor leaders on the important topic of the day—the struggle between capital and labor. Hugh O'Donnell, who has made him self one of the best known men in America by the prominent part he took in the Homestead strike, is expected to be present and to speak. If he does not come, one or two of his associates will be present. Burgess McLuckie and a prominent member of the advisory com mittee are expected. Gen. James B. Weaver, of lowa, the party candidate for president, will be present and speak, and Grand Master Workman Potvderly has also given his assurance that he will attend and speak. Every arrangement has been made by the park committee to accommodate and enter tain a large crowd. Preparations have been made for a great demonstration in Mahanoy City. General Gobin will be grand marshal. A handsome soldiers' monument will be unveiled. Governor Pattison will de liver an address. At Nanticoke a monument erected to the memory of Father Mattingly, the J first Catholic pastor there, will be un veiled to-day. A parade of all the Catholic societies of that section will be the principal feature. Labor Day at Centralis is one of the biggest in the town's history. The Le gion of honor will have a parade there, in which they expect several hundred Schuylkill county members to partici pate. In several other parts there will be demonstrations, but the majority are held by benevolent and secret societies. Labor organizations and laboring men in the anthracite coal regions, outside of the Mountain Park display, are not taking an active part in observing Labor Day. Freeland, however, has still life enough left to hold a good picnic this evening. Got llegirttered ut Once. The November election is approaching and you should see that your name is on the list of of voters. You can do this by examining the registry at the places of or calling upon the assessor of the district in which you reside, and have your name placed on the list.

I'ritchard, will be at the council room this evening and to-morrow evening, from 5 to 8 o'clock, to place on the registry any names that may have been overlooked. Now Postage Stamps. Next year the discovery of America will be celebrated in every way that pa triotism can invent. Not only are v e to be furbished with a special issue of half-dollars by the treasury, commemor- I ing the event, but the postoflice depart ment has also decided to sell jubilee postage stamps during the year 189.°>. Dlacovery Day. The4ooth anniversaay of thediscovery of America by Columbus will be cele brated by the societies connected with St. Ann's Catholic church. The details of the celebration have not yet been arranged, but the committees from the different organizations will soon meet to decide upon the most fitting manner to observe the day. Oir to School.

The corner-stone laying of St. John's Hungarian Catholic church at Ridge and Luzerne streets has been postponed from the 18th to the 25th inst. The in ability of Bishop Wm. O'Hara, of Scran ton, to attend on the formor date was the cause of the postponement. All so cieties that have accepted invitations to be present will make arrangements for September 25. The Tigers' New Building. The building on Walnut street, occu pied by the Tigers Athletic Association, is to be entirely remodeled and enlarged. Arrangements have been made with the proprietor, A. Goeppert, by which an other story will be added to the present building, anil the interior will be chang ed to make the structure suitable for the purposes of a first-class club-house. The first floor will he divided into a reception parlor and a reading room, and on the second there will be a gymnasium, equip ped with all the necessary appliances. A good library will also be added. The association expects to expend several hundred dollars in fitting out the new building, and before the first of the year the members will have one of the best and most convenient places in this sec tion. As everything connected with the rooms has always been open and free to the public, a small admission will be charged for the next few games played by the base ball club connected with the association. In this way the friends of the Tigers can each assist a little, and see the worth of their money in ball playing at the same time. BRIEF ITEMS OF NEWS.
