Coal Operators Ask for 15 Per Cent
THE MINERS MAY GO ON A STRIKE
The Conference Failed to Reach An
Agreement and An Adjournment
Seemed to Be Imminent.
Indianapolis Special.-When the
conference of the minera and opera
tors of the central competitive dis
trict opened Tuesday W. S. Bassett,
an Ohio . delegate, moved that the
scale now in..effect be re-adopted.
The Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, and wes

and the miners from the same States
yes President Mitchell then present
ed the demand of the miners, and F.
L. Robbins made the demands for
the operators of a 15 per cent, re
duction in wages.. He said: "Pres
ent conditions demand a reduction in
wages. We ask you to arbitrate as
to what your share of the reduction
iu the price of coal shall be." Mr.
Robbins said he and the ones he rep
resented would never sign a scale
unless it be a reduction in wages.
President Mitchell replied to Mr.
Robbins, saying that for his part he
knew what he was going to do. This
statement WJXS interpreted by the con
vention to mean the demands of the
miners would be adhered to.
The remark was applauded by the
miners. A recess was then taken.
During the recess, F. L. Robbins,
leader of the operators, said:
"lt. looks like a strike. The opera
tors will make no concessions-abso
lutely none. It is a reduction or
President Mitshell said: "On Mr.
Robbins' statement before the con

closing address for the operators. The
question was then called on the adop
tion of Mr. Robbins' resolution for a
reduction of 15 per cent, in wages.
On motion of Mr. Robbins, the mat

of fixing a scale. The convention
then adjourned until Thursday.

THE SMOOT INVESTIGATION
Great Latitude Will Be Allowed In
Washington Special.-An effort to
draw out the innermost facts of the
Mormon faith was manifest In Wed
nesday's proceedings before the Sen
ate committee on privileges and elec
tions, in an investigation of the pro
tests against Reed Smoot, claiming
his seat as a Senator from Utah.
President Joseph F. Smith, the high
est official of the church? was on the
stand all day. He was questioned
closoly in regard to the principles of
di'inc revelations. He said he ad
hered absolutely to all the teachings
of the church in that regard and that
he himself had been visited with di
vine inspirations from God. He also
said that he still believed Iii polyg
amy. The testimony was directed In
a'slight degree only at Senator Smoot
and no attempt was made by the de
fense to curtail the admission of testi
mony until President Smith was ques
tioned in relation to polygamous co
habitation of certain officials of the
church before the manifesto of 1890.
The attorneys then objected, and
much time was devoted to the rele
vancy of such testimony. The com
mittee went into executive session,
and after full discussion determined
to allow th? utmost latitude lo Ihe
hearings, which means that court
practices will bc avoided, and thus
the first victory was scored for the
protestants. The committee will
hear practically all the prosecution
has to ofTer and determine for itself
what is competent testimony. The
coihmlttee will hold daily sessions.
President Smilh was the first wit
ness. R. W. Taylor, counsel for the
Protestants, .isked Mr. Smith if he
was a prophet, seer and revelation
1st. Mr. Smith said he received his
powers by reason of the position he
held. He said the apostles of the
church were "sustained in the same
powers as prophets, seers and reve
Mr. Smith explained that the first
presidency is the president of the
church, and two high priests or coun
selors, and the twleve apostles are
next in authority. The Presidents
are elected by the council and the
apostles, he said, but he believed and
It is taught that presidents are really
chosen by divine revelation, and they
aro then endowed with Ihe authority
of the holy priesthood by authority
direct from God.
In relation to revelation the wit
ness said the church holds that any
elder may receive a revelation for
his own guidance.
"Then Mr. Sinoot may receive such
revelations direct from God?" said
"For his own guidance, yes," was
Mr. Smilh said only those revela
tions to the president which had been
presented io the church and accepted
by the members were binding upon
i hem. Mr. Overman wanted to know
what happened to those who did not
believe in the inspired revelations.
"Wero they unchurched?" he ask
"They unchuihed themselves,"
was the response.
Mr. Taylor put the situation In
this form: "May the members of the
church say to you. 'We deny that
God has told you to tell us that..a'nd
we will not roceive your revelation?"
"It could," was the reply.
Mr. Smith then made this state
"The members' of the Mormon
church are among the freest, most
indepond?ftt^people of all the Chris
tia.a- ?eliominations. They have free
dom of speech, freedom of thought.
They are not all united on every
principle of the church. They are
not expected to be. So long as one
accepts God, and his opinion ls not ?
In conflict with tho accepted stand
ards of the church, ho enjoys fellow
ship in the church. He who denies
God; he who commits adultery, or
steals, or lies, or bears false witness
against his neighbor in any way, or
.goes contrary to the cardinal princi
ples of our Christian religion, is com
pelled to withdraw. But ono who is
honest, virtuous, believes in God and
has a little f?.ilh in our religion is
nurtured though he may not. believe
in the church in all that it teaches. In
that book (Mr. Smith pointed to a
Mormon volume) is a revelation on
plural marriages. Not more than 3
or 4 per cent, of the entire member
ship of the church have entered that
state. All the rest have abstained
from plural marriages, and many
thousands have rejected the principle
Senator Dubois said: "I notice you
say that many thousands rejected the
doctrines of plural marriages. Do
you merin that they never practiced
plural marriages or that they de
, dared against the doctrine?"
Mr. Smith answered again that
many thousands in the church had
declared against the principle of plu
ral marriages as given to the church
tn a revelation from Joseph Smith.
Jr. To bring out the effect of refus
ing to subscribe to the teachings of
the church, Mr. Hoar asked a number
of questions, and Mr. Smith said:
"The principle of revelation is the
fundamental principle of the charac
"Have you ever received such a
revelation direct from God " asked
"I never said I hod received a reve
lation except that God has shown me
that Mormonism is God's divine
truth," said Mr. Smith.
"How has God shown you that?"
asked Mr. Burrows.
Mr. Smith described the accepted
theory of revelation of the principle
of polygamy to Joseph Smith. Jr., say
ing that an angel In black had appear
ed unto him.
He said revelations had not come
to him in thp.t form, but he had re
ceived a direct revelation from God
At this point Mr. Bailey said he as
sumed that all the testimony being
brought in in regard to the religion
of the Mormon church had some
sound relation to the Influence the
church had in civil affairs, and unless
he was assured of that he would ob
Bird Walks for Children.
I wonder to how many other coun
try-raised persons a bird-walk would
be the complete revelation which it
proved to me. How many "having
eyes, do not see?" Though I had
lived among them all my life, I could
count the birds with which I was fa?
miliar on my lingers. Nor did I
imagine that, except in isolated cases,
others w?re to be found near my
home. Now I learned, to my surprise,
that in almost any five miles of coun
try some forty different birds nest
in summer, while dozens more come
and go during the periods of the
spring and fall migrations. Twenty
species, moreover. Is not unusual
number to find living around one
during the winter months, and most
of these ara different from thosa
found at other seasons. In Central
Park, no less than two hundred spe
cies may be seeu in the course of an
entire- year. '

Perhaps some may wash away upon

now without fear of its wasting any

more has accumulated since the com

WATCH FARM CONDITIONS.
In this age of progress oue' can have
but little patience with the man who
works along certain lines because he
has done so for years, notwithstanding
the fact that he is losing money- yearly.
Those in rural districts are apt to envy
the city merchant, but if the riiral
man could look into the methods adopt
ed by the successful city man he wohld
find that the success was earned at the
price of eternal vigilance and keepini
up with the progress of his competi
tors and the demands of the buying
public. How many farmers work on
that principle? But why should they
not? Goodness knows, it is hard
enough at best to make the farm pay,
hence all the more reason why the
farmer should do his work intelli
Because your grandfather grew beans
profitably is not a reason why you
should grow this crop when some other
might bring much better returns.
There are many farms where one or
two crops might be made specialties
and yield large returns: on other farms
and under other conditions it would be
wiser to have the operations more di
versified. No time is better than the
winter for studying conditions and
planning for future operations. Have
a plot which may be devoted to experi
ments, so that things which seem
promising may be tested before one
goes into them too deep. Do some
studying this winter aud see if plans

AN EASY MILKING STOOL.
Any oue who has tried milkiug bal
anced on a stool with one leg will ap
preciate the convenient stool shown in
the illustration, particularly as it may
be made at a small cost and by any
one handy with tools. Take a piece of
board of convenient width andMength
and shape is as showu. Cut out
circle in front and then attach a por
tion' of a barrel hoop so that when the
Btool is in use the pail used will rest
on the floor and have but little space
between its circumference near the top
and the hoop.
The legs are placed at the angle
6hown and a hole is cut in the batik
end of the board so that the device
may be hung up out of the way when
not in use. Any one with a few tools
and a little lumber can make several
of these milking stools in a day, so
that each milker will have his own. By
the use of such a stool the milker is
comfortable, and there is no danger of
the pail slipping from between the
knees, as it often does iu the old way
of milking.-Indianapolis News.

Feed hay before grain. Not to do
this would be like eating our pie nud
cake at the beginning of the meal, and
everybody knows that will bring on
all sorts of trouble.
The best experience proves that it is
best to water before feeding. If tho
horse is warm from hard work do not
give him all he will take at once, but
let the amount be divided, part when
going to dinner, part after he has
rested a little.
Do not water the boise for some time
after he has had his ration of grain,
unless you want to lose part ?f Its
value. Watering after feedliig grain
washes the food out of the stomach
and prevents the animal from getting
the good of lt.
The horse that always has grain or
hay before him will not do so well
as the oue that is given a fair ration
regularly and has time between meals
to digest his food and give the stomach
a rest. There is such n thing as killing
a horse with kindness.

A marriage epidemic now- troubles
Servia, and the cause of the trouble is
a system of marriage banks, which

whenever they marry. Inimedhitely a
small sum has thus been decuniu

premature and ill-considered mar
riages is such widespread misery that

the advisability of abolishing mar

The Two Villages.
Over thc river, on the hill.
L eth a village white and still:
All around It the forest trees
Shiver ami whisper in the breeze;
Over lt sailing shadows go
Of soaring hawk and screaming crow,
.And mountain grasses, low and sweet,
Grow In the middle of every street.
Over the river, under the hill
Another village Helli still;
There I see in the cloudy night
Twinkling stars of household light.
Fires that gleam from the smithy's door
Mists that curl on*the river shore.
And in the roads no grasses grow.
For the wheels that hasten to and fro.
In that village on the hill
Never is sound of smithy or mill:'
The houses are thatched with grass and
Xever a clock to toll the hours;
The marble doors are always shut;
You cannot enter in hall or hut;
All thc v 'lagers Ile asleep.
Never 1 ?rain to sow or reap:
Never in dreams to moan and sigh;
Silent and idle and low they lie.
In that village under the hill,
When the riTght ls starry and still,
Many a weary soul In prayer
Looks to the other village there.
And, weeping and sighing, longs to go
Up to that home from this below;
Longs to sleep in the forest wild.
"Whither have vanished wife and child;
And hearelh, praying, this answer fall:
"Patience! That village shall hold ye
