Road got a new dress for his wife last week by the use of a Little strategy Over the strike. He was approached by a merchant of Louisville who had been caught away from Home and was anxious to return. The Engineer was on his engine and waiting permission from the strikers to pull out when the merchant asked permission to get on with him so As to make the attempt to run the blockade and proposed to the Engineer that if he would help him and succeed in getting him out of the City he might bring his wife to his store and get a handsome suit of clothes for her. The Engineer told him All right exchanged his Cap for the a a plug of the merchant and took him away Safe and sound. That engineers wife will Wear one of the nicest suits to be seen on the journal. The results of my investigation into the condition of the miners and other workmen in this Region were Only partly Given in my last. Enough was then told in regard to the unfortunate circumstances of the mining population to convey an impression of the conviction in the minds of these men that they Are oppressed ground Down disregarded or if regarded at All that they Are treated with less consideration than a careful Man would give to his horses and cattle. One of the houses into which i entered at noon was an example of the sort of dwellings in which the Large majority of the people live who work in the mines and Mills. It had two rooms the larger being that in which the family lived while the other was the sleeping room. The hut was a Dingy one near a breaker and its Interior was scarcely More cheerful than its Sun burned and blackened outside. The floor was Bare and there were no other articles of furniture than a table and three or four chairs All of which were broken. The windows were Hung with tattered paper curtains. The place was not Over clean. At the table drawn up at one Side of the room sat the Miner and his family wife and two children girls with faces As Black As if they too had been at work in the mines. The miners face was hidden beneath a mask of Coal Black out of which his eyes stared with a wild look giving a really innocent and Pacific person an appearance of ferocity which he did not have. The woman was neater than her surroundings. All were eating potatoes which with soda crackers and water composed their dinner. There was no bread on the table. The Man Laid Down his Fork and knife made an ineffectual Effort to hide his Grimy hands and arms and then went on to talk. He had worked very regularly As often As there was work to do in the mount pleasant Shaft which has the reputation of making More time than any other mine in the neighbourhood. He had Seldom made More than eighteen dollars a month and thought that fifteen dollars would be nearer his average. His rent was four dollars but he had paid it irregularly. All his supplies were drawn from the truck store of the company which is a private corporation Selling its Coal at the breaker to the Delaware Lackawanna amp Western. He was obliged to get his supplies at this shop because he never could get Cash for his work. Since the strike no flour had been served out so he could have no bread. As with Many other families i met meat was a luxury Seldom enjoyed. Clothes were bought scarcely oftener than to keep the family decently covered. A child died last Winter and charitable people in one of the City churches bad furnished de cent burial for it the Mother being unable to get Money or credit for the expense. There Are men among the Welsh miners Here who have lived in Hyde Park for Many years whose circumstances have been Good but who Are now sharing with the meanest labourer in the hardships common to All the population. One Man sober frugal industrious in Twenty one years had been Able to accumulate a Little property which was now slipping from his hands and he was $300 in debt. Yet he had practice Economy so severe that no Felon in a prison but would have Felt wronged if he were compelled to live on his fare. A leading member of the miners organization told me that he and his brother together were just Able to keep their House on their combined earnings. The brother had engaged to fifteen dollars a month Board but he had run behind ninety dollars in eighteen months although he never lost a Day by sickness never spent a cent for grog and was willing to do any sort of work. One Cabin that i visited was occupied by a woman Welsh who said that she had never known what hard times were until she came to Scranton. Her feet were Bare her children were fed irregularly and on poor food her husband had been sick and with nothing ahead nothing coming in and six Mouths to feed they were for months on the verge of starvation living on Charity. The miners Are All so poor that they cannot help each other and Many of them Are very proud even in their rags. It was hard to get them to admit that they were living on Mush alone when that was the Case but neighbors would Tell of privations suffered. The attempts to hide abject poverty were sometimes heroic. I was shown a Man who had been known to take his dinner pail into the Shaft Day after Day just As other men did when the form was an empty pretence and his pail did not contain so much even As a crust. Even the Mush the miners so largely subsist on is now had in Small quantities but with a Little bread they manage to appease hunger with the Aid of Garden stuff from patches which Are cultivated about Many of their huts where they raise Corn tomatoes Beans and a few potatoes. My guide was a welshman an Engineer in the mines and a Man of some education. He frequently was obliged to interpret the conversation which was carried on in Welsh by Many of the women. One of these women a widow with three sons said the oldest who is Twenty two years of age made Twenty dollars last month and the younger ones twelve dollars together. Most of this had been held by the store of the mount pleasant mine for an old debt and the family were out of provisions and without a Prospect of Relief. An Irish Miner with ten persons looking to him for support said he had not known such want As he Felt at present since 1863. Here again the expense of funerals was complained of. In an adjoining House lived a labourer with five children. The family of seven had lived on his earnings of less than six dollars a week As his daily wages were ninety six cents. A German labourer in a breaker said the largest amount he had made in two years during any month was fifteen dollars and it was usually ten dollars or twelve dollars. What astonished me greatly was the uniform cheerfulness of these people even when they were recalling and recounting their most painful experiences. I spent some time in conversation with one of the Catholic priests of this City and he fully corroborated All the reports of the destitution which had previously reached me and related others which had come under his personal notice. He was constantly relieving families some of whom had members at work but not earning enough to support them. Of the company stores he spoke As a great detriment to the workingmen holding them As they do in a sort of slavery which they cannot escape. It was said that the employees were not compelled to patronize them. But the labourers knew Well enough that they were expected to buy in them and the Small and infrequent payments of Cash made it absolutely necessary to obtain their supplies from the company. Another Clergyman who had abundant Opportunity to learn about the condition of the miners and who had studied the subject closely said he believed that it would be Safe to say the families in the Valley averaged six persons each and that they had maintained life on an average of seven dollars per month to each family for nine months past. It is not to be supposed for an instant that this condition of things ha3 not been known to Scranton people. It has been known to them and last Winter a Good Deal of assistance was extended to the poor by various societies through a Relief association. But the miners do not wish to live on the Charity of anybody. They Pray for work at living wages and Are willing to work even seven Days in the week to earn them. In a conference with the officers of the company one of the latter said to the miners 44 if you think the company is making so much Money perhaps you would undertake to work the mines for All above the expenses a to this the miners quickly replied 44 we will undertake to work the mines if you will support our a Cor.
