everything was quiet in the Schuylkill

OPERATORS REPLY TO
MITCHELL'S OPEN LETTER
WILKESBARRE, Pa., Sept 23. Tho
operators here, in reply to the open letter
of President Mitchell of the United
Mine Workers, make this statement:
"Mr. Mitchell's demands simply
mean a recognition of Mitchell. Defeat
stares him in the face and the
strikers are beginning to realize the
true situation of affairs. It Is cropping
out all over the strike region.
The men want to return to work. The
claim of Mr. Mitchell and other leaders
of the United Mine Workers that no
depredations would be committed while
they were in charge of the strike has
been nullified by the acts of the men
at Shenandoah. The leaders are unable
to control the unruly element"
About 170 of the striking mine workers
employed in the West End Coil
company's colliery at Mocanauqa, who
went out yesterday, returned to work
this morning. The other mines are

THREE WEDD1NBS AT
THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
Scarcely In tho history of any church
"has such a peculiar coincidence happened
as that which took place at the
Catholic Cathedral last evening.
Youth and old age met at the nuptial
altar and took the solemn marriage
vows. The first wedding was between
Manuel Frutos. a lad of 19 years, and
Miss Alice Martin who has Just turned
16. Manuel Costa and Emilia Aguia
were the best man and maid of honor.
The Bishop of Panapolls officiated.
Scarcely had the altar been vacated
when Manuel Gomez, an old man of 59,
led forward his would-be wife. Miss Matilda
de SUva. a woman well past 40.
Father Clement perfo'nned the ceremony.
The case of larceny ,n the second degree
against Frank Turk, the shipping
man. was dismissed by Judge Wilcox
yesterday, as it was shown that the

Liberals Very Bitter
BUT THEY DO NOT HOPE TO WIN
SERIOUS CHARGES AGAINST
Lively Discussion in the Papers
Over the Merits of the American
System of Checking
(Copyrighted by Associated Press.)
LONDON, Sept 22. The political
campaign has commenced in earnest.
Only another week remains before the
polling utgins and It will be only .;
little over fiv weeks before the new
parliament assembles, ihai it will be
a conservative body is a foregone conclusion.
Herbert Glastone admits that
it is quite impossible for the liberals
to win over the 100 seats necessary to
give them a victory. Thus irom the
outset the election loses its interest,
practically resolving itself into an opportunity
for politicians on both sides
to air their views and to discuss the
momentous issues of the last year un
trammeled by the conventionalities ot
St Stephens. The division in the ranks
of the liberals over the war is so
great that it is quite impossible to keep
all the candidates In line. Thus, while
Sir Edward Grey and the Rt Hon. H.
H. Asquith and others are telling the
voters that it is useless to discuss the
war and are admitting the annexation
of the Boer republics as the only logical
outcome, Mr. Morley and other
well known members of the party are
telling them that war was unnecessary
and that the annexation of the republics
Is a blot upon England's fair
One point, however, the liberals all
unlto on and that is the unrairness of
Lord Salisbury in bringiug about a dissolution
at the present moment when
the register of 1S9S is expiring, so that
all who were not registered over two
years ago are disfranchised. The new
register comes into force in February".
Thousands are affected and the
liberals maintain that Lord Salisbury's
action is not only without precedent,
but is unconstitutional. On the other
hand the conservatives claim that
Lord Salisbury acted fairly, as, had he
waited until after February, he would
have the undoubted advantage of tho
votes of soldiers returning from South
In their wrath that the election was
precipitated with so little warning the
liberals are not alone. Business men,
regardless of party, are furious over the
disintegration of trade which always
accompanies election contests. Publishers,
for instance, after a wretched
year, seeing the war in Africa ending
and affairs in China becoming more
quiet, made all preparations for a revival
of trade. Just as they were
to put books out the announcement
of tho dissolution of parliament
came like a thunderclap, spoiling all
thfir prospects. The Stock Exchange,
on the same grounds, has got a great
griovance aglnast Lord Salisbury, as it
will be well into December before the
public can be expected to take a keen
interest in stocks.
The question of home rule except In
Ireland Is scarcely mentioned. Herbert
Gladstone, who represents West Leeas,
advises his constituents to lot the matter
rest; but the Earl of Sandwich
strikes a much franker note In renouncing
his adherence to the government
and returning to the ranks of the
liberals because "home rule" is dead.
A miniature bomb has been thrown
into the conservative camp by the Liberal
Morning Leader, which publishes
a lengthy story showing that the wife,
sons and daughter of Joseph Chamberlain
hold almost all the shares of tho
firm of Hoskons Sons, contractors to
the admiralty. Among the sons holding
a large amount of the stock Is J. A.
Chamberlain (the eldest son), who is
a civil lord of the admiralty. To put
a worse complexion on the matter It is
pointed out that there are no
now connected with the business,
which is practically a family concern
and apparently prosperous. The only
answer so far vouchsafed to the accusations
Is a letter from Mr. Chamberlain's
secretary, saying the minister i
not disposed to "notice the cowardly
Insinuation "contained in an indirect
Rumors assign the war ministry to
Mr. Chamberlain in the next cabinet,
the supposition being that the Marquis
of Lansdowne will retire and laso that
Mr. Chamberlain will then have Lord
Roberts as commander-in-chief and
Lord Kitchener as adjutant generaL
Earl Halsbury. the lord high chancellor;
Earl Cadogan, the lord lieutenant
of Ireland, Viscount Cross, the lord of
the privy seal, and William Court Gully,
the speaker of the house of commons,
are all said to be likely to retire.
The controversy on the relative merits
of ih& British and American Dig-gage
systems has been revived by the
complaints of visitor
who have lost trunks in England.
These, in turn, have called forth protests
against the adoption of the chek
system. An Englishman who has visited
America writes to the PalLJtall
Gazette, giving details of thefou&w

of Ms checks, the delay and the al-
leged impossibility of obtaining compensation,

STATEMENTS OF FLtOol
LOSSES TO BE PREPARED
WELL ATTENDED MEETING OF
PROMINENT JAEANE8E, AT
Sufferers in the Plague Fire Given
Threo Weoks Additional
Time to File Their
Representative Japanese to the number
of a hundred "or more met last
evening at the Japanese primary school
out on Nuuauu street and discussed the
necessity of taking action in the settlement
of claims and the payment of
damages resulting from the big iire
originated by the board of health
which devastated much territory last
March, in which many Japanese mar-chants
and others were heavy losers.
Among the prominent Japanese present
and who participated In the discussion
were Consul Miki Saito, Vice
Consul Tanaka and Secretary Sacko,
besides all members of the local consulate.
S. Oznki, a well known merchant,
was among these who took an
active interest in the deliberations and
made a few remarks.
Consul Miki Saito took the floor after
calling the gathering to order and in
detail stated the object of the meeting.
He urged upon those present the necessity
of establishing a board of
claims to investigate into the losses
and damages sustained by all the Japanese
merchants whose business houses
were destroyed by the fire. The consul
also advocated the necessity of the
merchants filing itemized statements
of their losses with the consul, who
w411, upon receipt of them, submit the
same to the territorial officials for consideration.
Some of the fire sufferers
have already complied with this request,
but there are many who have
delayed the matter. Consul Miki Saito
stated that the details pertaining to
the loss incurred have been, as they
have been learned, forwarded to the
Japanese minister at Washington. The
work of submitting anything like a
statement to the territorial government
has been greatly hampered by tho
dilatory manner in which some of the-merchants
have acted in filing the'r
statement of damages. The consul
hoped that more promptness would be
displayed in attending to the matte.-.
Three weeks additional time was finally
decided upon as sufficient for all
parties to file statements with the
consul. The consul also wished to ascertain
the number of Japanese merchants
who lost their property, either
by the sanitary fire or by the order of
the board of health in each block of
the burned district, that all may bz
accounted for and represented in the
claim against the Territory of Hawaii.
The recent losses to Japanese on the
island of Maul, also at Hilo, Hawaii,
were touched upon and quite a discussion
followed as to what would be done
In the disposition of losses suffered
at these places. Consul Saito promised
that they would be considered at
a later date.
It was also suggested to those present
who have failed to file claims that
in doing so they have them attested by
two witnesses. Where stock and gooes
only were damaged the instructions
were to produce Invoices and consular
certificates as far as possible.
In closing. Cons! Saito urged the
hearty co-operation of all Japanese In
the matter and hoped that they would
unite and work together to bring about
an amicable settlement of the claims.
In the event that the local consul
should be unsuccessful in making a settlement
i3th the territorial government
the statement of claims at.d
other matters pertaining to the losses
sustained by the Japanese of Honolulu
will be forwarded to the minister at
Washington, who will personally, witn
the aid of the Japanese government,
endeavor to arrive at & basis of settlement

Star Route Plans For
United States Hails
Inspector Carr of the Railway Mail
Service Returned from Maui
Many needed improvements in tho
handling of tho United States mails are
contemplated in the service on the Islands
and numerous changes of a beneficial
and substantial character aro to
be inaugurated at an early date.
Among the passengers arriving on
the steamer Kinau, which reached port
yesterday, was G. W Carr, inspector of
the railway mail service. Mr Carr has
been on a tour of Inspection throughout
the Island of Maui and during his
absence visited every nook and corner
of that island, establishing postal facilities.
Mr. Carr has traveled over much
of the country out of the oeaten paths
and his visit there will doubtless prove
of much good in the reorganization of
the postal service thero and in the establishment
of star routes.
From the results of Inspector Carr's
observations about fifteen star routes
.re to be established on the island of
Maul. It is intended that these will
radiate from various points which mall
steamers touch and cover all Intermediate
postal districts on the island.
The present manner of handling mails
vMl receive much attention and undergo
some decided changes for the batter.
As has been the custom In the
past, the various mall routes were
farmed out to carriers and transportation
companies on a regular stated salary
or stipulation without regard to
bids. Under the new regime they will
hereafter be given out solely by contract,
which will be let to the lowest
bidder, after the same method as is
followed in the States. In reorganization
of the present methods the postal
authorities will carefully cover the
ground, and It is the intention to first
establish the star routes, define their
respective boundaries, then advertise
for bids. These bids will then be forwarded
to Washington to the secoud
assistant postmaster general, who will
open them, and to the one naming the
lowest figure for transporting the mails
for the district in question, the award
will "be made accordingly
Similar steps will be taken on the'
other islands not already covered.
Since coming to the Hawaiian Islands
Mr. Carr has Inspected the present
postal facilities of all the islands In th
group with the exception of Molokai
This has been left to the last pending
a decision from Washington regarding
Its disposition. Mr. Carr has little
fault to find with the present system
of transporting mails in the island service,
but believes that the introduction
of star routes will obviate much do-lay
and insure much more satisfaction
and prompt delivery than the present
plan. The Introduction of the contemplated
Improvement will doubtless
soon manifest its superiority to the
patrons of the postal service.
It Is hoped to inaugurate some of tr.e
changes before many months have
passed and the railway mall agent will
immediately communicate with tho
postal authorities nt Washington in
regard to the information he has suc
ceeded In gathering while away on his

he said, to agree to any reasonable
requirement which the board would exact
in order to protect the lists. If
necessary there could be special policemen
detailed to bo present at tho Inspection,
which would be conducted
under the supervision of the board.
The democratic party was willing io
defray all expenses Incidental to such
an undertaking. But It wanted to secure
a list of those accepted by the
board of registration. Later in the day
Mr. Andrews Informed Colonel McCarthy
that his party's agents might
copy the lists, placing tables in roar
of those of the board and using the
books when not In use. This Is satisfactory
to the democrats, and so all
trouble Is happily averted.
