Em ployees, who have attained the age of seventy and who have been in'the serv ice twenty years or more are to receive pensions on the basis of 1 per cent per annum of the average salary received for ten years previous to pensioning for each year of service. .

Consolidation of Coal Operating Com panies the Latest. NEW YORK, Dec. (5. J. Pierpont Morgan's plan for the ultimate consoli dation of all .the anthracite coal roads of the country is now asserted to be well under way. -' It is said that the main feature of the comprehensive new scheme is to be the purchase outright of the property of the independent operators who have caused trouble,? thus eliminating them from the problem. The statement is made that this will mean an expenditure of $100,000,000, but that it is already practically pro vided for.if the plan is carried through. . The attitude of the independent oper-; ators in the recent negotiations when an effort was made to settle the coal strike has prompted MrJ Morgan to deal with them in no uncertain way. ; He still intends, if possible, to end the trouble without the aid of President Roosevelt's strike commission and; so has made up his mind .to buy out the Delaware and Hudson railroad's inter ests, together with those, of John Mar kle, the Cpxe Bros, and the others. He is particularly desirous of getting the property of Markle, as the latter is regarded as the chief stumbling block to peace with the miners at present. " . That matter settled, the coal roads will then be brought under one head. The selection of E. B. Thomas, chair man of the Erie, aspresident of the Le high Valley, a choice " dictated by Mr. Morgan, is one of the steps inithe plan for putting - the hard , coal : properties wholly under his domination. TRADE CONDITIONS. v One-Sided Bnlldlns. "A good many people . find fault tiih some of the new buildings we ire putting up, on ' the ground that they are one-sided," said one of the superintendents employed by a large construction company. "By this it is meant that" they' appear archi tecturally incomplete. Many 'en trances are placed at apparently in convenient corners, and - large win dows and prominent decorations that rightfully belong in certain sections to insure a harmonious whole are now sadly out of place. This lack of uniformity is duetto the fact that many buildings in course of construc tion are not being put .. up in their entirety. In many cases it has been found impracticable to break the lease for houses on adjoining prop erty which was meant to be incor porated into the area of the . new building, consequently the work pro gresses in sections. When the leases expire : and the rest" of the ground is available, these buildings will pre Eent a homogeneous front." N. Y. Times. , , ' India's Mendicant Arm;, ' India" is the mendicants' paradise, for there they are regarded as holy instead of being considered a nui sance. . The penances of these beg gars take .many and strange: forms, one of the severest. being the passing" of the , devotee's life, in an iron cage, bound with fetters, so heavy as to prevent him standing upright. Others hold one arm , above their heads till it becomes withered, while others bind ropes and ' chains so tightly roimd their, bodies that the bonds grow into the flesh and can not be removed. A form of penance w,hich savors of the ridiculous is that in which the. fakir ties his hands and feet together and rolls, head over heels for long distances; in some cases, it is said, thousands of miles are traveled in this way." Although there are over 3,000,000 fakirs in In dia alone, a beggar never starves, ex cept ; voluntarily in self-punishment, so afraid are the' natives of in curring the wrath of their multi tudinous gods if the holy men . are not cared for. London News. Activity Exceeds Pre'vfons Realms. Farm Products Rule ISlffh. NEW YORK, Dec. 6. R. G. Dun & Co.'s weekly review of trade says: , Aside from the interruption to. retail trade in winter goods at many points by unseasonable weather, business ac tivity continues In excess of previous years, and it is probable that ail the postponed trade will be made up now that low temperature has become gen eral. Irregularity is reported in the -Iron and steel market, most departments having much business while a few are seeking new orders and seem disposed to make slight concessions. Thus far, however, only a slight tend ency is noted in the' direction of cheap er iron, and. in such products, as steel rails and structural material the con sumer. cannot hope for early conces sions." As it is well known that much business is held back by. high prices,' there is no prospect of dullness in the near future.

N-' Father Curran then gave .a ; descrip tion of the conditions untf er which the mine workers live, . which is somewhat similar to that previously given by Fa ther Hussia of Hazleton. : In answer to questions put. by ; Judge Gray -Father Curran said. he was opposed to the boy cott.and the blacklist.
