of mining rates from 70 to CO cents per

Pinsiiuno Pa. January 8. AGroens
burg special aay! The story that Eng
lish detectives have obtained .evldenoe
tbat a powerful secret society of dyna
miters Is In existence at Irwin station
who are directly resnonslble for the re
cent explosions In England Is received
with little credence although It la ad
mitted tbat strangers whose actions
bave been decidedly queer have been
seen at various hotels during the past
year. It Is claimed that the story Is a
political scheme to bring about antago-
nism between English and Irish resi-
dents of tbls country and prevent future
coalitions such as were victorious In the
. New Your-. January 8. The Prohibi
tion convention to-day declared that the
National Prohibition party is an inde-
pendent political organization of cltl-
zei.j of tbe several Statts free of all
sectional prejudices and preferences and
its members acknowledge no dictation
in the use and disposal at their ballots.

OitFxxsncito Pa. January 8. This
community was startled this morning by
tbe published announcement that a pow
erful secret society of dynamiters is la
existence within the boundaries of this
county also that the society is directly
responsible for the reoent explosions and
assassinations in England. These de-
tectives have been on tbe track of tbe
society or brotherhood for several
montbs and bave found It well and
strongly organized somewhat under tbe
plan of tbe Molly Hagulres; tbat Its
tressury contains large sums of money
obtained by assessment and other
sources from all parts of the State. Some
of the reoent explosions bave been
traced directly to this sooltty as well aa
a number of assassinations committed
In England. . These Esgllub deteotlves
have' mingled with tbe suspects for a
year.and bave departed for Washington
with evidence which they will lay be-
fore the proper authorities. Tbls evl-
denoe im possession of these detectives
Is of such a nature that It will show be
yond doubt that the citizens of this
country have been and are now engaged
In sending to England trusted men with
large quantities of dynamite and men
who bave tbe nerve to use It artcr It Is
Nitw Yorut January 8. Tho commis
sion to the Central and South American
States has presented Its report to tbe
President. It recites the manner In
wblclt It performed Its duties In order to
secure more Intimate commercial rela-
tions between tbe United States and the
several countries of Central and South
America. The commission finds tbat
tbcro must be: Itegular direct stesm
communication; commercial treaties and
reciprocal concession In tariff duties;
impiiiicationa anu mouiucaiions oi cus-
oms regulations In tbe Central and
South American countries; Increase and
Improvements of the consular service;
establishment of American mercantile
bouses In Central and South America;
a more Intimate knowledge among
American manufacturers of the wants of
tho people of Central and South Amer-
ica; a system of banking In connection
and a common standard of value; more
liberal credits by our merchants; the In-
troduction of the bonded warehouse
system into those countries. With ref-
erence to the fourth preposition the
commission says It has been urged with
mucn lorce to recommenu ine eaiaunsu-
ment of a new executive department of
the Government similar to the Hoard of
Trade of England with a member of tbe
Cabinet for the head to which board
shall be committed the care and arrange-
ment of our foreign commerce.
