The Most Careful Husbanding of Supplies
Has Become Necessary
There is Only Enough of the Cheapest Provisions to Last
Ten days The Government's Appropriation, in Cash
and Supplies, Has Been Exhausted.
San Francisco, May 5. An important
conference, devoted to the problem of
husbanding rood supplies, was held &z
the Presidio today. Among those in
attendance were General Greeley, Gen
ual Funston. Dr. Devlne and Allan
Pollak. The situation, as made public
during the committee meeting last
Thursday was discussed In all its de
tails and all present agreed that rigid
economy should be practiced In future
At the conclusion of the conference
General Greeley said: "The condition
of the food supply wi'l render It pos
sible io issue very little except flour,
which will last ten days, potatoes, cof
fee and rice. Meat. we. are buying In
small quantities. I have been officially
notified that the appropriation of $2,
f.OO.OOO has been exhausted in the pur
chase of supplies, and I may state that
the money a-lotted to my use is gone
for the same purpose. It has been
agreed that the supplies now on hand
must be carefully husbanded in order
that they may be diverted into the
proper channels for as long a period as
"We are issuing but two-thirds of
the quantity of food that was distrib
uted prior to the time the regular army
took charge of the system. The teams
engaged in hauling and distributing
have been reduced from 500 to 2G2 in
number. The last official report
showed that supplies were issued on
Thursday to 261,000 people. I hope that
today's report will show rations issued
to less than 200,000.
"The census of each district is being
carefully computed. I am convinced
that there is regular repeating, and
since thousands of men are reported to
have obtained 'employment there should
be a material reduction in the number

The Statehood Controversy
Within Narrowest Limits
The Only Question Remaining is
When May Arizona and New Mex
ico Vote on the Proposition.
Washington, May C. All the minor
amendments to the statehood bill are
cither disposed of or are in such shape
that they may be made the founda
tion of arguments at a moment's no
tice. At today's session of the con
ferees the crux of the ' situation was
reached for the first time.. 'The ques
tion of the admission of Arizona and
New Mexico as one state was discuss
ed at length.
A proposition for a compromise was
offered, and the meeting adjourned un
til Tuesday. In a general way It is
known that the compromise will be the
Foraker amendment, allowing the peo
ple of the two territories to vote upon
the question of joint statehood separ
ately. Whether this vote will be cou
pled with the election for state officers
or will be held prior, is one of the
questions to be decided.
There'll be No Anthracite
Strike This Year
The Only Qncstioa is Whether the
Agreement Shall Last Twa fears
Scranton, Pa., May 5. On the ad
vice of President Mitchell, represent
ing the subscale committee, the min
ers' committee today unanimously vo
ted to adopt the first proposition of
the operators, a continuation of the
award of the anthracite coal commis
sion, with t'.ie modification that the
term for which it is to continue shall
be mutually agreed upon. The apera
tors' suggestion was that it should be
at least three, years.
The action of the convention, to
gether with a request for. a confer
ence on Monday was telegraphed by
President Mitchell to Chairman Geo.
K. Baer, of the operators' committee,
and an answer was received agreeing
to a meeting at 2 o'clock Monday af
ternoon at the Jersey Central offices
in this city. The only matters to be
discussed at the conference are the
length of time the award shall con
tinue and the provision that there
shall be no discrimination against th
men who obeyed the Mine Workers'
It is practically certain that the
shippers will not accede to any sug
gestion for a two-year agreement as
that would throw the next conference
into a presidential year, and as the
miners will not want a long term
agreement, the chances are that a
three-year agreement will be eventu
ally entered upon. An intimation
has reached here from President Baer
that the operators will not discrimi
nate against miners now on suspen
sion, and the local representatives of
the coal companies say the same thing.
It looks, therefore, as if a strike has
been averted, and the miners will re
turn to work probably on Monday,
In his address to the convention, in
presenting the report of the scale com
mittee, Mr. Mitchell said: "I am in
favor of raising the low priced men to
the standard of the high paid men.
During the six of seven years that I
have been in the movement in the an
thracite region, I have learned to know
much about conditions here. I want
to assure you that I am not at all
pleased with the wages or conditions.
I believe they should be improved.
"In considering the policy of the or
ganization, we must consider its possi
bilities. . If I were sure a strike would
be successful, that you would win,
that you would stand together, I would
advise you to strike, and stay away
from the mines until we got better
"But from the information I have
received from all parts of the region,
I am fearful that our people are not in
shape for a strike. I know that there
are many among us who are not in
sympathy with a strike movement. We
must retain what we have, rather than
lose what we have gained in the last
"In deciding this question, may I
ask you to do it without passion or
sentiment, but with due regard to what
is betit now. Whatever your decision
Js, whether it be to strike or whether
it be to work, I ask you to stand to
gether, accepting without reservation,
the conclusion of the majority."
The news that the convention had
decreed against a Btrlke was received
with great joy throughout the region.
Since the delegates began to arrive in
Scranton on Wednesday, it was felt
that the result of the convention would
be the transforming of the suspension
into a strike, and that the strike, when
It did come, would be a long one, at
tended by much disorder. It was not
until last night that indications point
ed to even a possibility of peace. To
the miners, the news is very satisfac
tory. They were willing to strike if
John Mitchell thought they ought to,
but they were glad that he decided
Anent the rumor of the possibilities
of the operators continuing the sus
pension as a punitive lockout in the
guise of an enforced idleness on ac
count of a glutted market, Col. R. A.
Philips of the Delaware, Lackawanna
and Western company's mines said to
day that the prospects of a good sum
mer were bright.
In his opinion, there might be a
slack time for a couple of weeks about
June 1. but that after the middle of
June there would be good and pros
perous times in the coal regions, with
the mines working nearly full time. He
based this prediction on the fact that,
while tiiere aje fair stocks in the east,
the western market Is absolutely amp
ly and there will be a greater demand
for anthracite coal in the west this
summer than ever before.

AN ESTABLISHED FACT
Pennsylvania Official Supposed Eto
rybody was Aware af it.
Philadelphia, May 5. Vice president
Thayer of the Pennsylvania railroad,
today made the following statement
concerning the report of Commissioner
Garfield in the Standard Oil inquiry:
"The report of Commissioner Garfield,
so far as it refers to our company
in its relations with the traffic of the
Standard Oil company, is an inexcus
able and outrageous perversion of
"It is true that there has been in
effect a special rate of nine cents per
barrel on oil from Olean to Rochester
and It has not been withdrawn. This
rate was originally made in 1888. by
the Western New York and Pennsyl
vania railway, twelve years before the
acquisition of that company by the
Pennsylvania railroad. In order to re
tain to the railroad traffic. which
would have otherwise gone by pipe
line. It Is not a secret rate, and never
ha been secret. The tariff was not
filed with the interstate commerce
commission because it applies to traf
fic solely within the state.
"As to the socalled saving of $115,-
i 600 in 1904, I presume this la based on
the difference between the special
rate and regular classification rate.
This conveys the impression that a
large sum of money was illegitimately
given by the railroad, which, in view
of the facts above explained, is mani
festly not true.
"Reference is made to 'blind billing'
as if it were some secret device. This
is also untrue. The term 'blind' is
used when manifests are made without
the details being shown, a practice not
infrequent and not peculiar to the oil
"In the mess-age . f rom the president
transmitting the report of Commis
sioner Garfield, reference is made to
the relations of the railroads to the so
called 'sugar trust' at Xew York and
to information communicated to the
president that the socalled 'sugar trust"
rarely, if ever, pays lawful rate for
transportation. Having personal
knowledge, I deny most positively and
emphatically that such information is
true, so far as the Pennsylvania rail
road company is concerned. On the
contrary, I assert positively that the
traffic of the socalled 'sugar trust' or
other shippers of sugar has been car
ried on for many years past at the
lawful published tariff rate, and that
no rebate or unlawful concession, di
rect or indirect, has been paid by our
company on this traffic."

THE FIGHT IS
A Compromise in Which All Republican
Senators May Join
It is Possible That a Final Vote Will be Reached on Wed
nesday Its Passage With the Allison Amendment is
Washington, May -5. Assurances
were today given to the president that
practically the republican, strength
would be cast for the Allison amend
ment to the railroad rate bill. Senator
Allison hopes to be well enough to be
in his seat Monday, but it is likely that j
the compromise will not be offered un- (
til the rate-making and court-review
sections of the bill, are reached. The
final vote on the bill may come as early
Comparatively few senators were at
the capitol today. Instead of having a
conference, as had been suggested, the
leaders seemed to think that the gen
eral welcome given to the statement
that a compromise had been agreed
upon made such a gathering unneces
sary. The few who did meet at the
capitol discussed the president's state
ment - again endorsing the Allison
amendment and expressed the opinion
that his acceptance of the proposition
eliminated all prospects of a contest.
Many of the democrats, especially
those who advocated Senator Bailey's
plan for a limited review, were inclined
to look with some doubt upon the com
promise proposition. They would have
preferred the bill without amendment,
as the alternative of the Bailey amend
ment. Nevertheless, they concede that
the Allison amendment will go through.
A suggestion was mau today that the
democrats should all vote against the
amendment, not with an idea of defeat
ing it, but simply to show their dis
approval of its terms. The minority.
