Itnllronil Magnate Finds nn Equal
in People's Representative.
New York, Oct. 10. "What do
you mcau by politicians? I want
you and all the operators to under
stand that I am Governor of New
York, the choseu representative of
7,000,000 people, and that I am
here in this matter solely in that
capacity, and to relieve, if possible,
an intolerable situation. And what
is more, I intend to use every power
at my command tb do it."
Governor Odell made this state
ment today to President Baer of the
Reading road in the presence of
United States Senators Piatt of New
York and Quay and Penrose of
Pennsylvania. It was the culmina
tion of a headed interview in the
office of Senator Piatt and the re
sult of the meeting between Gover
nor Odell and President Baer.
Baer was not in the best of humor
when, accompanied by E. B.
Thomas, chairman of the board of
directors of the Erie Railroad, he
entered Senator Piatt's office. The
conference began by a statement by
Senator Penrose that the situation
was becoming so serious that some
solution must be found at once.
He suggested that the operators
should Incline to some concessions
toward a settlement.
"If you meau by that," said
President Baer, "that we are to
recognize the existence of a labor
union, I tell you right uow that the
operators will consider no such
Governor Odell was on his feet
in an instant. Holding a half
burnt cigar in his hand, and white
with excitement, he said: "Are
we to understand that no kind of
conciliatory proposition will receive
consideration at the hands of the
"I did not say that," answered
Baer, "but I do say, and I reiterate,
that we will not accept political ad
vice or allow the interference of
politicians in this, our affair."
Then it was that Governor Odell
made the statement attributed to
him at the beginning of this article.
President Baer, evidently appre
ciating that he had gone too far,
bowed to Governor Odell and said:
"Governor, I beg your pardon.
No personal affront was intended,
and wc will listen to any sugges
tions you may have to make, but
again I repeat that we must refuse
to recognize the union as repre
sented by Mr. Mitchell."
"I believe," said the Governor,
"that your position, from a public
view, is absolutely untenable. If
coal operators, railroad men and
other business men can combine for
mutual profit and protection, there
is no reason why laboring men
"What is the proposition?" asked
"Just this," said Governor Odell,
"I am sure that the labor organiza
tion of which Mr. Mitchell is head
desires him to be fair with the gen
eral public. If the operators will
consent to give the men 5 cents a
ton increase I will personally pre
sent it to the miners, and I believe
they will accept it. It is a fair
"Does this meau, Governor
Odell, that we are to recognize the
Miners' Union?" Baer asked.
"It certainly does," auswered
Governor Odell quickly, "and there
is no reason why you should not."
President Sti'l In Trying to Ilrlutr
Washington5, Oct, 11. President
Roosevelt is seeking every method
by which there may be federal
action in settling the coat strike.
His cabinet advisers have been re
quested to look carefully into the
laws which may have a bearing on
the subject and see if there is any
statute under which he can proceed.
So far nothing has been found.
There is one ray of hope, but it
is rather faint in view of the atti
tude of the coal operators. That is
that some mutual ground of arbi
tration may be found. The miners
are willing to consent to arbitration
of all questions. The operators
admit the principal of arbitration
to a limited extent in offering to
submit individual cases of dispute
between employers and employes
to the courts of common pleas in
the districts where the disputes oc
cur. What the President and his
advisers arc trying to ascertain is
whether a middle ground of arbi
tration may not be agreed upon.
This plan, though it does not
now" give much hope of success, is
the only one in sight at present.
Those who have discussed the mat
ter with thr President think that,
as the situation grows more acute
both parties, in the interest of the
public welfare, may be induced to
accept it or something of a similar
nature. That the President is very
much in earnest is shown from the
conferences that continue on the
subject at the White House.
Secretary Wilson of the Agricul
tural Department, Carroll D.
Wright, Commissioner of Labor,
and Frank D. Sargent, Commis
sioner of Immigration, were among
those who saw the President today,
and it is understood that all of them
discussed the coal strike situation
with him. No official statement
could be obtained at the White
House as to the progress of the ad
ministration's work, although it
was admitted that there was "a
great deal going on" which it
would be inexpedient to make pub
lic at the present time. No intima
tion was given as to whether the
remark referred to the conferences
at the White House or other negotiations.

Roosevelt on Crutches.
Washington, October 10. The
President no longer needs a rolling
chair from his room on the second
story to the street. Today on per
mission of his physicians he dis
carded the rolling chair and adopt
ed crutches, which he used when
leaving the house to take a drive
with Mrs. Roosevelt.
Washington, October 10. The
situatiou as to Cuba is such at pres
ent as to give the officials here
great concern. It is feared that
Cuba is drifting away, and evidence
is multiplying day by day to mark
the growth of a spirit of indiffer
ence toward the cultivation of
friendly commercial relations with
the United States that almost bord
ers on hostility.
The treaty which, by the terras
of the Piatt amendment, might be
entered into between the two gov
ernments is now awaiting the ap
proval of the Cuban Government,
which approval is withheld, not
with any expressed intention of re
jecting the convention, but through
what is regarded here as the nat
ural inertia of the Cubans in diplo
This treat" includes provisions
for a considerable measure of reci
procity between the United States
and Cuba, and while it is true that
the Cubans believe that the United
States has been rather niggardly iu
the arrangement of the reciprocity
schedules, these objections are not
regarded as sufficient to account
for the great delay in concluding
the treaty. However, there is no
intention, it is said, to resort to any
undue pressure on the Cubans.
CASEV TRIES TO SETTLE.
Admiral Confers With Representa
tives of Colombia.
Panama (Colombia), Thursday,
Oct. 9. A conference betweeu the
Government representatives and
Rear-Admiral Casey took place yes
terday. The Admiral subsequently
said the object of the conference
was to sec if the Government and
the revolutionists could come to
some agreement or arrange the
basis for such an agreement. He
could not say much ou the subject,
for he had only one side of the
question. He considered, however,
that the terms offered in President
Maroquin's amnesty decree were
His only idea in conferring with
the authorities here was to end the
strife which he considered unpatri
otic, for it not only ruins the
country, but delays the steps being
taken looking to the completion of
the canal. He did not see from the
arguments he had heard that there
was much difference in the princi
ples upheld by either of the Colom
bian parties, except in matters rela
tive to the church.
Admiral Casey is studying the
terms which the Government offered
and iu a day or two will send a
communication to General Herrera,
the revolutionary commander, ex
pressing his views on the situation,
and will propose that the General
hold a conference with General Sal
azar, the Government commander.
Admiral Casey received last Sat
urday General Herrera's reply to
Commander McLean's communica
tion notifying the General that the
United Stateshad assumed control
of the isthmus, but he would not
divulge the contents of the letter.
According to rumor, Herrera's note
is couched in very strong and offen
Regarding his refusal to allow
the Colombian Government to
transport troops on the railroad,
the Admiral said the United States
had taken this action in order to
maintain free transit. He knew
General Herrera would not dare to
interfere with trains flying the Am
erican flag, but he thought that if
the Government was permitted to
transport troops or war material
along the line it would be provok
ing to the revolutionists and might
cause an interruption to traffic.
Thomas Says It Is Hopeless.
New York, Oct. 11. It was
stated today at the office of E. B.
Thomas, chairman of the board of
directors of the Erie road, that the
reports to the effect that there was
likely to be on Tuesday of next
week further conference with Sen
ators Quay, Piatt and Penrose,
were incorrect. The statement
issued by Mr. Thomas at the con
clusion of the conference of Friday
morning definitely covered the sit
uation. The presence of Secretary Root,
who came here last night from
Washington, gave rise to reports
that he would at least confer with
the representatives of the coal in
terests on behalf of the President.
Mr. Root, however, said he had
MARTIAL LAW IX SPAIN.
Soclnllsts In Alliance With Annrohy
Gibralter, October 10. Martial
law has been proclaimed over the
Spanish lines ou account of a dis
turbance which took place last eve
ning. Troops are on guard ready
to quell any further signs of riot
ing. The trouble was started by the
closing of a club of Socialists in a
small town near the border. This
club is shown to have been the cen
ter of a group of anarchists which
has been in communication with
anarchists iu all parts of Europe.
It has been under surveillance for
some time and the persons going to
and coming from the club have
been closely watched by the authorities.
Enough evidence was obtained
by the police to confirm their sus
picions as to the exact nature of
the club, and last night the place
was raided. The soldiers attacked
the club with a show of force and
were attacked in turn by the fre
quenters of the place, over a score
For a time the fighting was fe
rocious. But the power of the
military overawed the rioters and
they were dispersed after twenty
had been killed and a large num
ber wounded. A lieutenant of the
Civil Spanish Guard was badly
wounded and his liTc is despaired
After the club was in the posses
sion of the guard a thorough search
was made of the premises, which,
resulted in the finding of numer-'
ous documents which prove con
clusively that the club had been in
correspondence with the leaders of
the anarchistic band oi Europe.
Nothing was found which would
give an inkling as to tue exact
propagation of the club.
The district is now tranquil, but
the guard still patrols the place
where the club was located.
NEW ORLEANS TIED Ul
Street Car Lines at Standstill ou
Account of Strike.
New Orleans, Oct. 11. The fail
ure of all efforts to bring about a
conference between the striking
street railway men and the New
Orleans Railway Company has, it
is feared, brought the strike situa
tion here to an acute stage, and
preparations are being made today
at the various armories in the city
to carry into effect with a strong
hand the proclamation issued today
by Governor Heard demanding a
restoration of order and the sup
pression of violence. All the mem
bers of the local militia are ready
to respond to the call to arms at a
moment's notice and troops from
the country parishes have been
ordered to hold themselves in read
iness to move to this city on short
A citizens' committee has been
organized and efforts are beiug
made to recruit independent com
panies to support the State troops.
No efforts were made to run cars

ister, but later in the day, when he today and it is the general impres
sion that the first attempt under the
failed to appear at any of the places
which it is his custom to visit when
here, it was reported that he wa.s in
conference with J. P. Morgun.
Mr. Morgan did not appear at his
down-town office today. One re
port had it that Mr. Root had gone
off to Mr. Morgan's yacht Corsair,
which is lying in the river.
Close friends who saw Governor
Odell before his departure for New
burgh today were inclined to be
lieve that he has formulated a plan
of action in event that the strike is
not settled at an early day. This
plan, however, is not believed to
have any direct bearing on the set
tlement of the dispute betweeu the
operators and miners, but looks to
a project by which coal may be
supplied to the suffering poor of
new conditions will be postponed
until Monday in order to prevent
interference by the mobs that would
certainly gather on Sunday.
A familiar belief is that moss
grows chiefly on the north side of
trees. The notion is not estab
lished by science, and an examina
tion of many trees has shown Prof.
Henry Kaemer, a Philadelphia bot
auist, that ten per cent had the
moss on the west side, ten per cent
on the northwest side, ten per cent
ou the north side, twenty per cent
ou the northeast side, thirty-five
per cent ou the east side, and fiftecu
per cent on the southeast side.
