Attempt to Wreck Express.
READING, Pa., Sept: 30. An attempt was
cnade to wreck a Reading express train
last night at Brooks Crossing, a short dls
tancs below Plttston, Pa, A fish plate had
been spiked to the rail in such, a manner
that the rails would strike it when, tn
, train came along. The wheel of the engine
did strike the obstruction, but the plat
broke and the train was not derailed.: The
officials are Investigating.
The reports of the Philadelphia aV Read
ing railroad here show that during lb
last week about 12,000 tons of bard coal
were turned out of the washerlea and col
lieries of the company and transported to
different points. This would be equivalent
to about 400 cars. None of It has been
delivered In this end . of the Schuylkill
valley. The officials ssy the coal was sent
to Philadelphia and points beyond there.

TOLEDO- O., Sept. 10. Mayor Samuel M.
Jones today issued a proclamation regard
ing the miners' strike. It' says . in part:
"Every effort to bring-about a settlement
f the difficulty haa been arbitrarily and
arrogantly rejected by the . mine owners,
until the trouble has now become almost a
national calamity. This State of affairs
has moved some of our fellow citizens in
Boston to ask the United States courts to
appoint a receiver for the various anthra

trouble through their absolute refusal to
submit the question' cf their different- to

citizens should have the moral support of
all good people everywhere, I therefore call
upon all patriotic and liberty-loving citi

Mayor Moor wi' veto habit was shown to
a marked degree In the proceedings of the
council last evening, there being no less
than six documents returned without his

one, however, the measure was re-enacted
notwithstanding the veto of the mayor, and

a few years and this fact must be taken
Into consideration In this matter. In ad

Thirty-fifth Street Opening.
Among the other documents which the
mayor refused to approve were the ordi
nance repealing the former ordinance pro
viding for a twenty-foot alley In continu
ation of Thirty-fifth street from Farnam to
Harney street, and the ordinance provid
ing for the opening of a fifty-toot street at
that point Instead. The mayor's communi
cation relating to this question said:
I veto this ordinance for the reason that

owners on the north side of Farnam street.
as they derive no benefit from the making
of this street. Neither are the property
owners east or west of thin street, between
Thirty-fourth and Thirty-sixth street, bene-
lited by the opening: of Tnlrty-nrth street
from Farnam to Harney. The only parties,
as I see It, who are benefited are the resi
dents living on the south side of Harney
street, beteween Thirty-fourth and Thirty

some point in the center of this block
or addition, without having to go west to
Thirty-sixth street or east to Thirty-fourth

dents south of Harney are willing to pay
for the opening of an alley to the amount
of 12,000 between Thirty-third and-Thlrty-elxth
street. If euch alley can be made. If
the fifty-foot street la made . tt stops at
Harney street, where there is a Jog - of
a hundred feet or more before 1t reaches

Thirty-fifth street, north of Farnam, Is a
sixty-foot street, which is ten feet wider
than the street proposed by this ordinance.
Which makes another Jog and you are en
tirely out of proportion In the three streets.
Hy passing this ordinance you will involve
litigation as .the owners of property In
block 19, and alao in the block north of
Farnam, will fight any assessment, they
claiming that no benefits come to them by
the opening of this street.
These two ordinances also were passed
by a unanimous vote notwithstanding the
As to Fire Department Fnnd.
In a long communication the mayor an
nounced that he had refused to sign any of
the items In the last appropriation ordi
nance which would come out of the fire
department fund, for the reason
that the fund was in a depleted con
dition, and after paying the salarlea of the
department for 'September, October, Novem
ber and December, and the pension roll for
the same months, there would be a de
flclt in the fund of 11,010.95. This, as he
looked at it, meaat that all bills for ex
pense, which the comptroller estimated
would amount to $7,000; the fire depart
ment proportion of the alarm system, 1834;
the fire department proportion of the Fire
aad- Police --eomnilimlon,- $550; mtrrt b
laid over to be 'met out of the apportion
ment for next year.
' Councilman Haacall suggested that it bad
not been customary for the council to In

tion by Judge- Hascall waa adopted calling
the attention ot the Board of Fire and Police
Commissioners to the condition of the fire
depsrtment fund and suggesting ibat ex
penses be curtsiled id every way possible.
One of the measures vetoed ty the mayor
and passed notwithstanding was the Item
in the latest appropriation ordinance al
lowing L. N. Gondea $158 for traveling ex
penses as the representative of the Board
of Park Commissioners to ths convention of
the National Association of Park Commis
sioners at Boston in August.
Hascall Talks Ahnat the Mayor.
. Councilman Hascall took thl occasion to
resent the mayor's veto of the appropria
tion for Councllmen Ztmman and Hascall
and a representative of the city engineer'
office to attend the League of American Mu
nicipalities' convention and severely criti
cised Mayor Moores for having absented
himself from th city for a terra of several
weeks and having drawn full salary for that
time while the city was obliged to pay the
president of the council another salary for
performing the duties of mayor. "This extra
expense Is all right when he Is benefited
by It, I suppose," said Mr. Hascall, "but
when he is not I notice that he U very
prompt with his veto." It wss argued by
several members that Inasmuch as th park
board had approved the item It must be
sll right and there was no occasion for the
council or the mayor' to question It.
The employes of ' the city hal) were
granted a half holiday today. It being pro
vided at the suggestion ot Councilman Lo
beck that In case there should be any meet
ings of the school teachers or others In the
building set for the afternoon one of the
elevators must be. kept in operation until
tbe usual hour.
. The one case In which the mayor' veto
was sustained was on tbe voucher for th
payment ot $327 to John Laughland for
services In impounding and destroying un
licensed dogs. It, wa. explained by tbe
comptroller that a mistake bad been made
and it bad now been found that the fund
for that purpose only, contained $200. Tbe
veto was sustained and a resolution wa
adopted Instructing the dog catcher to dis
continued work for tbe season.

Mr. Devery was granted five minutes to
addres the committee. He said: "I am
a democrat, and have been one all my life.
I have never changed my colors, and come
before you tonight simply because I made
a fight against a leader wbo was not of
ny use to his district and was not wanted
there. Goodwin had every chance n the
world. Tbe police were his. They would
do anything he ordered, and I am sure I
did not appoint the election officials. In
the name ot Justice and right I ask that I
be protected. I won fairly and squarely,
and certainly 1 should not be robbed."
Hill May Back Down.
Other contests were subsequently con
sidered. Late tonight it waa rumored that
prominent party leaders. Including John B.
StanchOeld and Elliott Danforth bad gone
to Senator Hill and Informed him that In
their Judgment It would be political sui
cide to keep Devery out ot th convention,
and that be had succeeded In creating
strong sentiment in bis favor by bis gen
tlemanly tactics since his arrival here. Mr.
H1U Is said to have .told them that be bad
reconsidered the matter, and that It might
be best to permit Devery and his fellow
delegates to take aeat . from the Ninth.
This, however, could not be confirmed.
Tbe convention waa called to order at
12:30 o'clock, and John B. Stanchfleld ot El
mlra, the temporary chairman, addressed
the assemblage In part as follows:
The death of President McKlnley was a
national misfortune, deeply deplored and
sincerely regretted by all class s and con
ditions of people. A more strenuous, If less
politic, administration has demonstrated,
however, how egreglously our martyred
nresident was In error regarding the Philip
pines. The administration stands upon the
proposition that we can buy wun money,
or obtain by force, the right to hold In
subjugation a people whose consent Is not
had and give to them such a constitution
as we deem proper.
We ' assault- the administration that Is
carrying on this so-called war In the Philip
pines upon the ground that It does not de
clare a time when it will turn over the
islands fo their people, an we did In the
case of Cuba.- Had we made public procla
mation to the islands that upon the laying
down of their arms we would, soon as they
should form a government,' turn over the
Islands to them, reserving a similar Interest
to that we have now in Cuba, the war
would long ago have ended.
What the democrats say to our repub
Hcan opponents Is, If you exercise a pro
tectorate over Cuba why, to please the
beet sugar cabal, do you leave the tariff
as a hurdle over which it must forever
Jump before it is on a level In the run
ning? .Take oft the tax. and In the no
distant future Cuba will be one ot us, a
Jewel in the sisterhood of states.
We assert that the time has come when
it Is ths duty of the people by means of
legislation to curb and curtail the further
advance of those corporations whose busi
ness It Is to foster snd promote monopolies
In the necessities of life.
If we were In power and could pass and
enact Into law a provision removing the
tariff from all articles In which a monoply
had been created, relief would be at once
experienced. When our home Industries
have obtained so complete and absolute
control of the products of the nation aa to
enable them to make prices that are pro
hibitive in their character, the plain and
simple remedy Is to remove the protecting
