Route of the New Railroad. Work on the Pond Creek and Wyom ing Railroad, the new road from Pond Creek to White Ilaven, is progressing rapidly. The line starts from the junc tion of the Lehigh Valley and Jersey Central Railroads, a short distance south of the Pond Creek brick works, and parallels the Central to a point north of these works, where it makes a detour west towards the old Keiper farm. It then turns east and runs along the creek under tho Central's trestling, thence along the creek past the new breaker and along the side of the mountain near or through the farms of Jesse Fairchild, Samuel Miller, Chas. Dusheck and Joseph Ilandlong to a point near the borough line of White Ilaven. It there crosses the turnpike to tho oast and will again cross the Cen- j tral's tracks by an overhead bridge, i It will then run to Bridge Junction, near White Ilaven, where connec tion with the main line of the Lehigh Valley will be mado. The road will traverse the whole of Chas. Dusheck's farm, from east to west, below the dwelling house. OIl Engineer* Must Go. According to an order just announced by the Central Railroad of New Jersey, ail engineers on the road who are fifty years of age will be relieved of the jobs after January 1. This order will strike several old employes of the company and will put out of service some of the most careful and inost trustworthy engineers on tho road. The reason advanced by the railroad officials is that the risk is too great to continue men who have passed that age at the important post of engineer. The company feels that it will pay to fill tho places with younger men, which prob ably means the promotion of some fire men to be engineers. Such engineers as are relieved will be employed in other capacities by the company. I'olsu of Hibernian Board*. The much vexed question whether or not the Board of America and the Board of Erin of the Ancient Order of Hiber nians shall unite is about to be settled. Bishop McFaull, of Trenton, N. J., to whom the case was referred as arbitra tor, has notified Rev. Father E. S. Phillips, of Plains, who was Instrumental in bringing the matter to his attention, that he will render his decision next Saturday at Trenton. Father Phillips understands that the bishop favors the consolidation of the boards under one head and a settlement of all the differences existing between them. Nearly 200,000 men will be af fected by tho decision, which, accord ing to a previous agreement with the boards, will be final. Funeral of Mn. William Drumtra.

A tough gang attempted to rob one of the foreigners and a fight ensued, in which seven men engaged.

Deputies' Trick to Create Sympathy. Two sticks of dynamite were found on Saturday morning on the porch of A. P. Piatt's residence, Ilazleton. The dyna mite was laid there with the intention, it is claimed, of blowing up the house, but as the powder was not connected witli fuse or caps, and was therefore harmless, the find has a suspicious flavor of a scheme worked up to secure sym pathy for Piatt, who is manager of Par dee's pluck-mo store.

ARISTOCRATIC VIOLATORS OF THE STATUTES ACT THAT WAY. In the Interests of Property, Not for the Miners' Sake, the Broadcloth A nsr chlete of Pennsylvania Are Severely Rebuked by a Corporation Orffan. From the Philadelphia Times. The question that is now very gener ally agitated in the coal mining regions of the state, is whether company stores at which employes in mining operations are compelled to deal at extortionate prices for the necessaries of life, are above the law. It is a very grave ques tion, and it indicates an unwholesome condition of affairs when there is cause for such agitation. The legislature of tills state has enact ed two laws, each of which should be scrupulously obeyed by eniployors to whom it applies. One requires that the wages of all employes in certain chan nels of industry shall be paid semi monthly and in money, and another prohibits such employers from owning company or partnership stores, or being interested in them directly or indirectly, and thus compel employes, under fear of dismissal, to deal at such stores and pay excessive prices for most of the ar ticles they consume. These laws are as plain as the English language can make them, and being the law they should be obeyed. It should not be necessary for any person to en force obedience to these laws by legal process, as employers have vastly more interest in maintaining respect for tho laws than have thoso whom thoy em ploy. It is a notorious fact that both of these laws are violated, somotimes open ly and sometimes by indirection, in both the anthracite and bituminous mining regions of tho state. In some instances the employes are not permitted to save a dollar, and many of them are kept constantly in debt at stores where they are compelled to expend their money if they would assure continued employ ment. There is not a coal minor in Pennsylvania, however ignorant of our language, our general laws and our in stitutions, who does not know that the two laws we havo reforred to are upon our statute books, and should be oboyed by thoso to whom they have a right to look for high example. Every instance of violation of tlieso laws by employers thus toachos to the employes a disrespect for law, and tiiere havo boon few violent outbreaks result ing from labor strikes, which havo not been inspired chiofly by the conscious ness on the partof tho strikers thilt they cannot be morp lawless than are those who employ them. If employers do not respoct the law, they must not complain if their loss intelligent employes, who havo much less responsibility as citi zens, and who, as a rule, have no prop erty to protect, resort to violence and lawlessness when thoy unite to redress their real or imaginary wrongs. The best way to assure law and order in the mining regions is for tho employ ers of tho miners to prove to tho public that they do not assume to be above the law. They should teach, not only by respect but by uniform and faithful ex ample, that the safety of all, higli and low, rich and poor, is In maintaining tho majesty of the law, under all cir cumstances; but they cannot teach obe dience to the law to their employes when they assume that they are above the law, and make themselves conspicu ous examples of its violation. No man in Pennsylvania, howovor potent in public or private life, can assume to be above the law, and especially should the employers of the miners teach respect for tho law by illustrating their entire obodlence to its mandates. It is natural to inquire why these laws are not enforced. The laws are so plain that none can misunderstand them, and the penalties for their violation are dis tinctly defined, but these laws fail in en forcement bocause those most interested are not in a position to attempt to punish the violation of the law with impunity. The poor miner In most instances feels that he must submit to any measure of oppression rather than bring his em ployer to the bar of justice. If he at tempted to do so, he would not only be dismissed, but would likely be black listed and thus be precluded from obtain ing employment elsewhere. These laws wisely designed to afford protection to the worklngmen of tho state, are not enforced because there are none who can attempt their enforcement with safety to themselves. The Wllkesbarre Rword. in discussing this question, confesses that these laws are not enforcod, and that they cannot be ontorcod until amended. It suggests that "if tho law were amended so as to require county detectives or constables to return to the court violators of the anti-company stores law, pressure would speedily be brought upon such officers to do their duty in tho premises if they failod to act voluntarily." Such an amendment of the company ! stores law seems to be a necessity, and ! whatever legislation is needed to make any law effective should bo promptly supplied. The remedy should, however, Continued on Fourth Page. $1.50 PER YEAR. I £IIAB. ORION STROII, Attorney and Counselor at Law and Notary Public. Office: Kooms3and4, Birkbeck Brick,Freeland. JOHN M.
