THE DAILY REPUBLICAN.
The Republican Printing and Publishing Co, FLBI ISHED DAILY. EXCEPT SUNDAY S. E. COP. ItllBD AND KINO STREETS Elltrcd at'the Pott Office at WHmlngtM Dal., at second-class mall matter. MONDAY. JUNE 23. 100a. The people at large do not ap pear to be much concerned as to who will be the two next United States Senators. The pencil push ers thus far are doing all the talk ing. The voters will be heard from some time later on. The people are told that this man and that man will uot do. That he made u bad reeord because he voted for two United States Senators, but which unfortnnotely resulted in uo election. Several of the members of the last Legisture are candidates for re-nomination this year. What their chances are we do not know. The voters will decide that in No vember. But who ever the Repub lican candidates are they should be elected. There is considerable skir mishing being done to head off this or that candidate by certain men. It remains to be seen what influ ence they wield and what the re Bult will be on election day. It will require as much money to be circu lated during the nomination elec tion as on election day to get up an interest in the several candidates. We don't think any candidates will refuse all the help he can get and all the votes procurable. From the present outlook the coming cam paign will be as warm and exciting a one as ever has taken place in Delaware. The voter's assistant is expected to cut quite a figure and in fact big results are' expected by their help. The Governor appoints the inspectors uud assistants which should be something iu favor of the Republican party. Hundreds of votes have l>oeu thrown out by rascally inspectors in the past which this time will be prevented by hav ing a majority of Republican in spectors. But the people are the ones who should be appealed to and their sentiments found out. Whether they want two vacancies in the United States Senate or two Repub lican Senators. Both factions will have to make up their mimls to give and take. The Regulars should have one man of their choice and the Union Republicans the right to the same privilege, has a right to say who the other faction should offer as the candidate of their choice.

Captain Holmes, to-gether with a number of guests from Green wicli, Conn., also was on board. The builder's trial took place on the Delaware river on Thursday last and was eminently satisfactory, leaving nothing to he done except tlie final finishing touches of paint ing and transfer and clearing for malities. Captain Holmes on Saturday free ly expressed himself as being high ly pleased with his boat iu every particular.

Dulaney, pastor of As bury M. 10. Church, preached a special sermon to the Knights of Pythias yesterday morning on the subject "Friendship, Charity and Benevolence. " The text of Mr. Dulaney, which from .St. John 15, 15 was: "But I have called you friends.'' la the beginning ot his address Mr. Dulaney referred to the fact that while it was our pleasure to call ourselves servants or slaves, it was God's pleasure to call us friends. Frieudshin. he said, be gan on Christ's side, and Christ trusted his disciples as he would have them trust him. Mr. Dulaney dwelt at length upon the friendship ot Christ and the characters by which it is dis played. These characters, he said, were exalted purity and confiden tial intercourse, and said they might be acquired by affectionate obediance and faithful service, ln speaking of the friendship' of high and sanctified persons, Mr. Dulaney said it lost nothing by death and that the virtues of those whose faces we shall beboid no more appear greater when beheld through the shades ot the sepul chre. The world would be more happy, he said, if it gave up more time to the iucreasc of happiness, but money eugrosses all our deference and some scarce enjoy an hour. He referred to false friendship spoke of it being like the ivy which decays and ruins the wall it em braces, but added that true friend ship gives new life and animation to the object It supports. was lake a 11 d Country C ub Oroundn, The Wilmington Country Clubs cw grounds will be opened unlay., Tl Imisliimr 1 dies and tlie furniture and draperies are Dei On the opening day golf urr; and tennis will lie played and there .

MOTIVES FOR THE STRIKE EXPLAINED AMNortlofiN of Anthracite Operators Proved Fal«e by Their Own Re port*—Average Wave otnMlner 1* Lea* Than IjCttW a Year. WILKESBARUK, Pa.. June 23. Pvesldent John Mitchell of the United Mine Workers of Ameriea has issued an address to the public. It Is partly u reply to the letters of the operators declining to accede to the demands of the union which were published sboutt ten days ago. The address is as fol lows: To the Public: If (he contest now in progress in the anthracite coal regions of Pennsylva nia affected only the welfare of the railroad and mining corporations on the one haml and the coal mine work ers on the other, the public would have no vital Interests at stake and would consequently l>e U-ss concerned than it now is in the continuance, the exten sion or the termination of the conflict. but inasmuch as there is a third and important interest involved which, al though in nowise responsible for the present strike, is nevertheless an iuno* cent victim thereof it is but fair and proper that the general public should be fully and accurately informed upon the merits of the question iu contro-^j ▼er»y. If it shall be asked why we have waited until the close of the sixth week of the strike to issue n statement of this nature, sufficient answer may be found in the fact that we have besl tated to utter any word or to take any position that would impede or embar* rass eusy reconciliation with the coal operators. Every delay and precan* lion, every conceivable conciliatory ef fort (hut honorable and conservative men could take to avert a rupture and every means that thought could sug gest to bring the matter in dispute to arbitration was resorted to by the un Ion both before the strike order was issued and since it went into effect bnt without avail, the coal magnates replying to all our overtures with the declaration tlmt there was nothing to arbitrate. This statement on their part is >'<1 niVi!lent to saying that Ilia coal mini, workers lmve 'made unreasonable demand* mid have strueu without real or sufficient cause To this let plain unvarnished fuels and flg, ires reply ' For more than twentv-tive venrs the ' y.nis the anthnirito (.'on! mine sylvunia lmve chafed nud groaned un dor the most intolerable .* i inhumane conditions of employment imaginable.

However, their solicitude for the public weal has not deterred them from ad vancing the mark'd price of their coal more thnn $1 per ton since the strike was Inaugurated without giving any part of this increase to the mine work crs.

In other words, while, accord ing to President Olyphant. 13 cents per ton represents the operators' increased cost of production In 1901, 30 cents per ton ns compared with 1900 represents the Increased value of the product to the operators. In view of the fact that this enormous Increase In the selling price of coal has been extorted from the consumer by the coal trust can any one say that the demands of the miners for a small portion of the in creased wealth their labor has pro duced are unreasonable or unwarrant ed 7 Further evidence of the ability of the coal mine operators to pay increased wages is found in the sworn testimony of Mr. John Markle. managing partner of the^G.

The reports of the mine inspectors' bureau of the state of Pennsylvania show that during the past decade the average yearly fatalities in the anthra cite coni mines were 437 and that for the year 1991 there were 4S4 fatal and 3.256 uonfntal accidents. •eigltcd and service and line This means that for every 119.900 tons of coul brought to the surface one person in killed and more than two seriously in- I Jured; it ns that for each day the mines are in operation more than two , persons' lives arc sacrificed and ruor» ! tfcffn five persona nrr injured.
