Colonel Dodge covered the financial
policies of the administration and the na

SCRANTON, Pa., Oct. 11. The conven
tion of the anthracite miners now on
strike throughout the entire hard coal
fields in Pennsylvania will convene In this
city to-morrow morning for the purpose of
considering the 10 per cent. Increase In
wages proffered them by nearly all the
mine operators in the region. What the
outcome of the convention will be is a
matter of speculation, and the opinions ex
pressed to-night by labor leaders aro
The delegates to the convention who be
gan arriving to-day have all sorts of in
structions from their local unions on the
proposition of the operators. It was
learned that most of them now on th
ground will vote to reject the 10 per cent.
Increase unless the operators make fur
ther concessions. Many of the miners will
not favor the advance unless the opera
tors give a guarantee that the increases
will be kept in force for a fixed length
of time, others want the union recognized
before they will accept the proposition,
while not a few Insist upon concession
in the other grievances. The belief is gen
eral that in the absence of any uniform
instructions among the delegates, the
chances of a settlement by this conven
tion are rather slight. It is the Impression
of several labor leaders that at least a
tecond convention will have to be held be-
lcre any definite action will be taken look
Ing toward an early ending of the contest.
President Mitchell's remarks at yester
day's mass meeting, in which he told the
mine workers that the 10 per cent, was not
satisfactory, and. that they ought to make
concessions in the other grievances, is
taken by many persons as a hint to the
miners to reject the mine owners offer.
Mr. Mitchell, however, denied this, and said
he had no intention of influencing the men
one way or another. He said he was
merely voicing the sentiments of himself,
his colleagues and the many strikers with
whom he has . come in contact during the
In speaking of to-morrow's convention
Mr. Mitchell said to-day: "The miners'
convention to-morrow will be one of the
most remarkable labor meetings held in
the history of coal mining. For the first
time In over fifty years representatives of
all the collieries on strike will meet In
convention to discuss matters of vital In

by the operators to advance their wages

thracite miners as a . result of their long
years of hardship have become thoughtful
and studious, and have a thorough knowl
edge of the mining Industry in all Its
phases. It will undoubtedly be their de
sire to legislate In the interest of miners
In every section of the region. The con
vention will be free-from passion and ex
citement and the miners will demonstrate
to the country that they are capable of
doing business as prudent business men."
The convention, as near as the United
Mine Workers' officials can figure, will
consist of abount 700. delegates. About half
of this number are now here, most of them
coming from the Schuylkill valley and the
Hazleton region. The district headquarters
were crowded all day by visiting delegates.
President Mitchell spent a busy day at
his headquarters in catching up with his
mail and in preparing for the convention.
This afternoon he prepared th6 address
which he will deliver at the opening of
the first session. In all likelihood the con
vention will be a secret one, but a press
committee will be appointed to give out
information to the public. President Mit
chell will probably preside and the secre
taries will be elected by the delegates. The
organizing of the convention will be the

W. D.' Ryan, secretary-treasurer of tho
United Mine Workers of Illinois, arrived

sent In a few hours. Mr. Ryan said he was
not here on official business. He may,
however, consult with Mr. Mitchell on the
question of financial aid. although the na

needed at present.
DEMANDS OF MIXERS.
Instructions to Delegates from the
"Wyoming- Valley Collieries.
WILKESBARRE, Pa.. Oct. ll.-The
Wllkesbarre assemblies of the Tmlted Mino
Workers held meetings to-day and In
structed the delegates to the Scranton
convention to insist on the following de
mands: Recognition of the union; powder
reduced to $1.50; 10 per cent, general ad
vance; two weeks pay; a check docking
boss, and a contract signed by the "com
panies agreeing to the above, to hold good
for one year. The instruction of the dele
gates comes in the nature of a surprise,
as it was expected they would be allowed
to use their own Judgment after taking
their seats In the convention and learn
ing the sentiment of the other delegates.
President Mitchell's speech at Scranton
yesterday, in which he stated the 10 per
cent, in tvages offered by the companies
was not enough, no doubt influenced tha
strikers in the Wyoming valley to a more
or less extent.
The representatives of the big coal com
panies here, when shown the list of grlev
ances which the miners of the Wyoming
valley Insist upon the convention enforc
ing, said there would be no settlement of
the strike on such a basis. They say tho
demands are too sweeping and that the
companies could not think of granting
them. The individual operators say any

out of the question. They claim that with

NEW YORK, Oct. 11. A disastrous
freight wreck near the East Boundbvook
signal tower on the Central Railroad of
New Jersey to-night tied up all travel on
the road except that which could be sent
around the wreck by way of the Lehigh
Valley tracks. The wreck cannot be cleared
away before to-morrow morning. The New-
York and Chicago fast freight, running at
the rate of sixty miles an hour, was one of
the trains In the collision. To-night as It
went past the tower house at East Bound
brook a slow freight started to leave a
switch and ran out upon the main tracks.
The slow freight was half way over when
the fast freight rushed Into it. The engine
drawing the fast train went into the slow
train like a knife. The engine was in
charge of Engineer Charles Campbell, ot
Jersey City. He stuck to his post and was
cut in two. His fireman leaped before the
crash and escaped serious Injuries.
The engine overturned and lies upside
down on the east-bound tracks, with thirty
freight cars piled up around it. One of tho
forward cars of the fast freight contained
sewing machines. The sudden stoppage of
the car tore it to pieces, and some of the
machines were hurled loO feet away.

President of the Looted Ellsnnethport
Bank Determined to Vnt tho De
faulter Uchlud the Bars.
- NEW YORK, Oct. 11. President Heid
ritter, of the Elizabethport Banking Com
pany, which, as alleged, has been system
atically robbed, by William Schreiber, the
missing young bookkeeper, is quoted by the
Press as saying: "I'll spend the last cent
of my private fortune to put that boy
behind the bars. We'll never let up on,him.
Our bank is in the Plnkerton combination
and we have set other detectives at work
with promise of large rewards. Personally,
I think Schreiber is in Europe and we shall
soon catch him. His pronounced stammer
ing and his dwarfish size will make him
noticeable wherever he goes Then, too,
we have reason to believe he has only a
small supply of money, which he will soon
run through. As for Mrs. Haft, whatever
property she may have in the way of
furniture, gowns, Jewels and horses be
longs by right and by law to us, and we
mean to have them.
"People are amazed to find that the
youngest employe of a bank, hardly more
than a boy, could have looted a bank so
thoroughly, stealing more than the entire
capital stock and the surplus, and I don't
blame them. I acknowledge that the di
rectors are partly to blame. One business
like examination of tho bank would have
discovered the steal at the beginning. The
whole steal was possibly only because of
the construction of an old office, and it
was continued because bf the marvelous
head for figures Schreiber has. It is the
old, old story of a bank employe having
access to both the books and the cash.
When we moved Into our new quarters in
July I insisted on having the cash in
closed in a separate iron-barred office,
where Schreiber could get at neither the
teller's department nor the vault. Since
then Schreiber did not steal a cent. He
could not get at it. When I demanded that
Cashier Smith verify the books on various
occasions he let Schreiber handle one set
of books. So quick was Schreiber at figures
that he mentally added every item of his
embezzlement at the proper place, making
the balance perfect from the figures he
called out to Smith."
Henry P. Wesselman. attorney for the of
ficers of the Elizabethport Banking Com
pany, proceeded to-day to endeavor to re
cover some of the property alleged to have
been purchased by William Schreiber, the
defaulting cashier, by suing out writs of
replevin against Annie Hart, J. Dreicer &
Sons, jewelers of Fifth avenue, and Jerome
and Marcus J. Manheimer, the owners
of the Colorado liven' stables, for $15,000.
The bank gave a bond of a surety com
pany in $30.000. The horses and carriages
in the possession of Manheimer Bros, are
said to be worth $3,000, and J. Dreicer &
Sons are claimed to have jewelry left
there by Mrs. Hart valued at more than
tho balance mentioned in the writ.
The writs of replevin were at once placed
in the hands of Deputy Sheriff Rinn, who
proceeded to serve them on the defendants
named therein. According to the state
ments of Louis Qulen, jr., the son of one
of the directors of the Elizabethport Bank,
the latter have known for about a month
of the shortage and have been keeping the
matter a secret, fearing to put the de
faulter on his guard. Mr. Heidritter, the
president, howrever, is positive that it was
not nearly as long ago that the directors
were informed of the thefts.
'When that fellow did not come back
after the expiration on Aug. 25 of his va
cation." said he, "I put Walter C. Smith,
the cashier, on his trail. I was worried,
and I said to Mr. Smith: 'Here, go righ
back to those books and see whether they
are all In good shape or not. He examined
them and reported that the books were all
right. About ten days ago he came to my
house at 9 o'clock in the evening and said:
Mr. Heldritter, I can't make the individual
ledger balance with the general ledger.
Well, this is a mighty. fine time to tell me,'
I exclaimed. I drove out to Senator Keau's
house, and got there at 11 o'clock at night,
and told him the circumstances. The next
morning I was down at the bank at S
o'clock, and In about two hours discovered
approximately the deficit. I telephoned o
the State detective department to send
me the best man it had, and that morn
ing the directors met at my house, and
put up all the necessary money. Almost
all of them have told mc they were will
ing to contribute three or four times as
much as they did, If need be."
UNDERTAKERS IN PERIL.
Caught by a Sudden Storm That Swept
Over Pike Peak.
COLORADO SPRINGS, Col., Oct. 11.
Tike's Peak was the scene of a thrilling
adventure that befell the delegates to the
national convention of undertakers. The
part', including many of the wives of the
delegates, and in all over 200 strong, had a
narrow escape In a terrific t-iorm that

the cold and blinding snow. - The National
Association, which has just closed Its an

points of interest about the State, which
included a trip to the summit ot Pike's
Peak, although it somewhat late for

the part of the Republicans, due to over
confidence, but recently there has been an
awakening, due to the fact that it began
to be apparent that unless great activity
was displayed Mr. Bryan might be elected.
The result of this increased activity is
row becoming apparent in a great many
States. For instance, there has been a
very marked change in Maryland. The
recent registration in that State points dis
tinctly to a Republican majority. There is
a perfect unanimity from all sources that
West Virginia will go Republican by a
larger majority than four years ago. After
spending three days in Indiana, and seeing
a great many people, I came away with
the conviction that Republican chances
there were the best. I think the effect of
General Harrison's Interview will be bene
ficial. I am now going to Nebraska."
Vice Chairman Henry C. Tayne said to
day 'The result of the thirty-day poll re
ceived last night from Indiana takes that
State out of the column of doubtful States.
Indiana will give a larger Republican ma
jority than four years ago. News from
Maryland and Kentucky is very favora
ble." United States Senator Thomas II. Carter,
of Montana, visited Republican headquar
ters to-day. He said the electoral vote of
his State was in doubt, but that the entire
State Republican ticket, congressmen and
Legislature would be Republican.

NOT LIKE HIS FATHER.
Young Waldorf Astor Is a Cltlxen of
the United State.
NEW YORK. Oct. ll.-Surrogate Thomas
has appointed Waldorf Astor, the young
ten of William Waldcrf Astor, -who has
cn!y recently attained his majority nn
executor of the will of the original John
Jacob Astor. The will under which iho
young man is thus mad? an executor, was
made about fifty years ngo. One of ts pro
visions is that whenever the surviving
executors shall number no more than two.
by death or otherwise, those two shall have
the power of naming, with the sanction of
the courts, a third executor. About two
months ago William Waldorf Astor and
Charles Peabody, Jr.. went before Sur
rogate Thomas and stated that they were
the only surviving executors of tho will,
and that they wished Waldorf Astor to be
named as coexecutor. At the time the
question of young Astor's place of resi
dence and citizenship was raised. His
father some time ago foreswore allegiance
to the United States and became a sub
ject of the Queen of England. This matter
was arranged by Mr. Peabody making an
affidavit, in which he alleged that the
young man was born la the United States
and that he had never taken any steps to
forswear allegiance to this country, and
that therefore, he was a citizen and eligi
ble to the position as executor. On the
strength of this affidavit the appointment
was made. Surrogate Thomas thereby
virtually deciding that Waldorf Astor i
a citizen of this country, even though his
father is not. and that he has been edu
cated abroad and spent the greater part
of his life in England.
TROUBLE IN CUBA.
Fight Between Policemen and United
HAVANA, Oct. 11. At Matanzas yester
day a Cuban policeman interfered with
two members of the second United k States
cavalry. The quarrel culminated In a gen
eral fight between the police and soldier
who arrived upon the scene simultaneously.
After the police had shot Trooper Turey
of D troop, one other soldier and one
civilian, a number of troopers of D troop
tried to break into the gunroom to get their
weapons; but the quick action of Capt.
Frederick F. Foltz. of D troop, in forming
troops L and M in skirmish order, made
it impossible for the excited cavalrymen
to pass Lieutenant Willard is said to havo
teen slightly hurt while endeavoring to
quiet tho men.
The troopers declare that they will have
revenge, and Colonel Henry E. Noyes has
ordered all confined to barracks. The feel
ing is very strong between the Cubans and
cavalrymen. The authorities here look upon
the Incident as a pay-day fight, but un in
vestigation has been ordered.

for seven years has been grand president
of the Order of Railway Telegraphers, w-as
expelled from the organization to-day by
a large majority of the votes of the dele
gates present. The vote for expulsion
came after a trial lasting nearly two days,
at which the prosecution and defendant
were represented by counsel, and careful
Investigation of the charges was made.
The trial was strictly executive, and,new3
as to what transpired was only obtain
able to-night. The charge against Mr.
Powell was conduct unbecoming a member
and officer of the order. The charges
against Mr. Powell were originally pre
ferred by Secretary Perham. At the same
time counter charges were preferred by
Powell against Perham. The Perham in
vestigation is still pending.
To-night Mr. Powell made every effort to
avoid reporters. At his office in the Fül
le rton building three or four men kept
watch througout the night. Some of
Powell's friends stated they had no doubt
that he would seek redress through the
courts, as that was the only course left
by which he could vindicate himself.
PORTO RICO AND ITS NEEDS.
Annual Report of General Davis,
Commander of the Department.
WASHINGTON, Oct. ll.-Tho War De
partment to-day made public the annual
report of Brig. Gen. George W. Davis,
commanding the Department of Porto Rico.
It states that when the organization of the
civil government shall have been com
pleted and the civil machinery is working
well there will be no necessity to retain in
the island so large a force as at present.
He cannot, however, conceive it possible
to limit the garrison to a force just suf
ficient to take care of the guns at San
Juan, and he points out that the island of
Porto Rico must have in the future, as it
has had in the past, great military Impor
tance. Spain expended more than $1.000,000
on the fortifications of San Juan, and upon
the surrender to the United States the for
tifications wero found to be of great
strength and the armaments extensive.
General Davis adds: "It is inconceivable
that the United States will leave the
Island without adequate protection of men,
ships and guns, the only land owned by the
United States in the West Indies."
Land lor a naval station has been re
served and a coaling and repair station
probably will be erected at San Juan.
General Davis says the armament should be
increased and modernized and the guns
cared for by a sufficient force of artillery.
He eays the experiment of utilizing the
natives as soldiers has proved a marked
success, Judging from the appearance of
the organization as it was seen on parade,
review and in camp. While there has been
no test of the nerve and courage of the
natives in battle, ytt General Davis ex
pressed the belief that they would prove
During the year over 20.000.Co0 pounds of

YOUTSEY IS VERY SICK.

GEORGETOWN. Ky., Oct. ll.-The re
ports from Henry Youtsey's sick room to
night are not encouraging. The only
change perceptible Is that his rtupor is not
quite so heavy. Once or twice to-day he
has lifted his hands an inch or two, and In
a weak, piping voice repeated: "There's
no blood on my hands."
His physicians fear brain fever, which
would now prove fatal. It is contended by
some that tho stupor is caused by heavy
doses of opiates, but the majority of peo
ple believe he is almost in a dying condi
tion, and that his trial cannot be resumed.

NATURALLY I. LUCKY.
A Man Who Takes !Vo Mean Chances
on Any Venture.
New Orleans Times Democrat.
"I am unlucky Just naturally unlucky!"
said a man from one of the upper parishes,
"and nothing would Induce me to entertain,
a proposition that was in any way open to
chance, because if I did I know I would in
evitably get the worst of it. You may call
this superstition, if you like, but It Is sup
ported by so .many painful experiences that
I would be a fcol to disregard the warning.
The last time 1 gave fortune a chance to
jab me in the solar plexus was several
years ago. when a big lawsuit was on trial
at a neighboring town, involving the title
to a large tract of land In which I held an
interest. A couple of days before the ras
was closed an old negro aunty, whose hus
band was the bailiff in charge of the Jury,
told me that the verdict was already de
cided upon. Her husband had told her that
'the white ga'mmen had done made up
their minds, but, having sworn not to say
anything about the secrets of the Jury
room, he wouldn't go any further. I had
reason to believe the old woman's stcry
was true, and, as a prior tip to the result
would have been worth a lot of money to
me, I told her to tell him that I would give
him 530 if he would simply look at the side
that was going to win when I came into
court that afternoon. 'He doesn't need to
ray a word,' I added. so he won't b
breaking his oath not to talk. Of course, I
oughtn't to have employed any saeh soph
istry, but I knew the old hypocrite only
wanted a pretext to betray his trust, and,
rure enough, when I entered the court
room he glared fixedly at the side where
the plaintiffs were seated. I went light out
and accepted an offer for my Interest that
bad been made me on the quiet earlier in
the week. The next day the Jury returned
a verdict for the defendants, leaving me
about $2,000 out of pocket by reason of my
action. I hunted up the bailiff to get some
of his gore for leading me astray, but when
I found him I walked off without lifting a
ringer. It was my cussed luck once more!
He had tried to give me a straight tip. but
he couldn't look the way he wanted to to
save his soul. He was the only cross-eyed
nigger In the parish."
A Question of Ownership.
New York' Evening Post.
The nature of ownership in book-titles is
by no means generally understood, though
the efforts of certain publishers to avoid
collision with titles already used lias
brought the matter to public notice. In
tho current number of the Author, the sec
retary of the Society of Authors explains
the state of the case. There ts no copy
right In titles, properly speaking, nor own
ership In titles as such. It is only when a
book-title Is clearly original with the au
thor, or when its use by another constitutes
a fraud upon the reading public that there
is a case in law against the plagiarist. Thus
Swinburne would have no remedy againrt
a novelist who chose the name of "Loth
well" for his romance, since there rould
be no danger of tht public mistaking the
play for the novel. Obviously, too, no own
ership could attach to titles of a general
sort, like "Our Village" and "A Roy's
Town," unless intended fraud or substan
tial damages were proved. On the other
hand, it Is probable that the courts would
restrain a publisher from advertising a new
"Encyclopaedia Britannica" or "States
man's Year-Rook," while a bona-fide Har
per would be obliged to publish his "maga
zine" under another name than his own.
Such is the general principle. Practically,
the decision is made on the merits of each
case by the courts; though the courtesy
of the trade and the usual insignificance of
the books that apiear under the names
of their betters prevent any such cases
from coming up.
