the representative of the state because

people themselves, rather than from
the member of the state legislature.
The platform Indorses the principle
of direct legislation. Thi i already
applied to tht mote important que

upou the sound theory that the eople
can be trusted, and that tht inort re

I cannot too strongly emphasize the
importance of the platform recommen

The Chinese exclusion act ha proven
an advantage to the country, and it

Tht doctrine euuuoiated by Montot
aud approved by auoceediug president,

development ot free government. One

idea ha already barely a foothold iu
the New World.
The subjects, however, treated in

Whether we shall adhere to orabandou

distinguished thi nation from other

than to establish one, and this nation
would find it a long and laborious taak
to regain it proud position among tht

such a group of leaders cannot be com

Tbt government believe it can count
on the unanimity of all the cabinet in

Philadelphia, Sept. 20. The leadei
of the strike aay that at the end of the
seconl day 118,000 ef the 141.00G
minewoiken in the anthracite field
art idle. No representative ot the
mint operator make a statement foi
Ibeir aide ot the matter, but individual
mineownera dispute tho strikers' fig
ure, saying tbert are more men at
work than the union leader will ad
mit. The flrat advance in the price ot
coal, as a result of the strike, was
made by the Philadelphia & Reading
Coal Company today, 26 cent per ton
being added. This advance was
promptly met by the local dealer, who
increased the price to consumers 60
cents a ton.

These men were unorganized, and had
not presented any grievance.
True to it declaration made before
the atrike wa ordered, the Philadel
phia & Readiug Company today
brought it mule to the surface in the
two mine in Shamokin that had been
cloied by the strike, and announced
that they will be permanently aban
doned. Tht action makes it necessary
for tho miners who have been working
in these collieries to seek work else
where. The action of the 400 or 600 em
ploye of the West Find Coal Company
at Mocanaqua, near Wilkesbarre, in
sticking to their work stand out
prominently a the busy feature of an
otherwise idla territory. They say
that they have no grievances, have al
ways received good treatment from
their employers, and, therefore, resist
every effort to induce them to strike.
