Zion church last evening was greeted by an enthusiastic audience that completely filled the church. The •performers, though amateurs, gave good satisfaction and all went away pleased that they had spent such a de­ lightful evening at little Zion, and for so worthy a cause no one regi’etted the price of adTjkSsion. Space will n'ot allow us to do justice to every one but we may say that all did fairly well. The solo by Mrs. Clara Bowman, \Venice my Shining Star,” was lieaittMy encor­ ed; “Hear Dem Bells” received a full round of applause, as did, also, the “Old Oaken Bucket” and “John Brown's Body lies Mouldering in the Grave,” “Did n ot Old Pharaoh Get Lost?” was well received.- Miss M. La Roche sang with good effect “Cornin’ Through the Rye,” The recitation by Mrs. prank Shaw was very pathetic and receiyed a hearty round of applause. Elmer A. Canter recited the “Colored Spldier” by Paul Lawrence Dunbar. An entire new programme will be i^endered this evening, and ice cream and cake will be served. Fire in Johnstown. The Johnstown fire department was called out this morning to subdue a fire in a frame -dwelling on '\West Clinton street in that city, owned by Mrs. Jane Keith and occupied In the upper apart­ ments by herself with Patrick Leii and his family a s the occupants o f t _ -lower portion of the house. The fire is supposed to have originated from a stove in the kitchen -and before it-could be subdued the •dwelling was b u « .j ------ o-— -------- enable damage was also caused by wa­ ter and a quantity of property in the garret as well as in the apartments of the occupanits was niined.

The banders and binders who are employed on heavy work In the factor­ ies of this city which manufacture tlrat class of 'goods, held a largely attended meeting a t 10 o’clock this ■morning in Maccabee .hall on North Main street for the purpose of considering some action with regard to securing a better rate of wages than is paid at the present time. The operatives are employed principally at the factories of Daniel Hays & Co., J. C. Allen, Littauer Bros., and are also employed by Swaitz,Schif- fer & Co., F. B. Zimmer, and many are engaged in smaller factories and at their homes. The operatives at Zim- inei-’s factory did not attend the meet­ ing, as a satisfactory schedule is un­ derstood to have been aivanged and it was stated that only a portion of .those employed a t Allen’s factory 'went to .the meeting. The operatives at that es­ tablishment made a request for an in­ crease in wages a few days ago and it was stated at the factory to-day that the maibter had been adjusted satisfac­ torily by .the wages being advanced. As far as could be learned the matter of an Increase had not been brought .t-p the attention of Mr. Littauer to-day, and as he could n o t be seen no positive statement could be obtained as to what had occurred among his employees. It is understood, however,, .that .the opera­ tives think that the'y are entitled .to an increase in their wages, and the meet­ ing this morning was held with t Specials For To-Morrow. Another practical illustration of our ability to sell at lower prices than com­ petition, may be seen in the very exceptional bargains offered below. Huck Towels. THE WAX THREADERS. Reply to Statements Made by Lit- tauer Brothers. made in last night’s Dally I er by Congressman Littauer concern­ ing the schedule of wages asked him by his wax thread operators, certainly calls for a reply. We think that after a few things in this communication have been pointed out and explained, the public at large will appreciate that we are not “excessive” or unreasona­ ble Inbur demands. First. Mr. Littauer says that “there is little uniformity in the prices of wax thread work.” We certainly are aware that there Is a difference in the prices paid by him and other shops. We desire that this price be unifonn, and for this reasonreason ask that he pay .ntl.:,.!. J qj . J( a prices which have been paid for a long time by the Hays shop and since the 1st of January by the J. C. Allen shop. Second. We call attention to the fact that in every instance, hut one, where Mr. Littauer has granted the price asked by his operatives, as he himself says, “the item Is an inconsequential one.” And again, t'on three kinds of corkscrew and two Montpeliers there •was no difficulty because that class of goods are not manufactured by Littau­ er Bros.” Yet this all enters into what he calls a raise of from 12^6 to 15 per cent., which he says \we believe the operators will recognize and soon ■willing to accept the liberal adva: lling to accept th iered.” We certain inpt acceptit it ecognize it. ainly “recognize it,” _ i simply because e do recognize it. Third. Mr. Littauer states th:at ?arbyarby factoryactory “thethe waxax thread( l in a lers are :entsents a dozen.ozei ne f “ w t ■willing to work for 30 c a d while for this same work a t Llttam Bros, they ask 40 cents.” In reply, we state that the adjective used is not correct. Tliese men are not “wUlifig,” but are \compelled” to take these wages. But It seems to be stated that factory turns out a veiT few; in- It is asserted with authority, not iwij out gloves of the very cheapest sort; work that does not call for the time or care demanded by Mr. Littauer of his \wax threaders. And even the very few \sheepskin and lighter leath­ er gloves” he manufactures are heavier and harder to be manufactured than those of this nearby factory. Fourth. To illustrate how excessive our demands are, Mr. Littauer in­ stances the pri’ne asked on outseam mittens. He says “the price on outseam mittens has been fifteen cents. The will average 18 dozen per day. i if they desire to work steady and hard, some of them can make 25 dozen per day.” While the average good and steady workman, talcing ork as i t comes, cannot average week . and week out 12 dozen per day. here is not a living operator that can ke work as it comes and make 25 doz- 1 six days in succession. Now to show plainly that our de­ mand Is reasonable, we present In the table below the wages paid in 1893 and then in comparison, the wages now paid by Mr. Littauer, the ■wages we de­ mand and those he has offered. It must not be forgotten that out of these wages, in the neighborhood of $20 per year* returns to Mr. Littaii from each operative for power rent.
