Lansford, Pa., Oct. 16. About 1,500
men and CO women and girls marched
18 miles from the south. Bido Hazelton
region during the night for the Panth
er Creek valley where they expected to
close all of the 10 collieries of the Le
high Coal and Navigation company,
but just as the weary marchers were
nearing their destination they were
met on a mountain road by three com
panies of infantry and at the point of
tho bayonet .were driven back four
miles to Tamaqua and dispersed. An
other crowd of 800 men from the north
side of Hazleton also marched heie
and succeeded in closing the com
pany's No. 1 colliery at Nesquehonins,
near Mauch Chung, before It was scat
tered. The presence of the soldiers
was entirely unexpected and the strik
ers were much crestfallen that they
failed in accomplishing the object of
their long march. It was probably the
most exciting morning the Panther
creek and Nesquehonlng valleys have
ever experienced. Strikers were scat
tered over the various roads) and com
panies of soldiers were scurrying in
all directions heading off the march
ing men. Tho troops were patient
with the strikers, while the labor men
were careful not to commit overt acts
in tho presence of the troops. For a
moment just after after the two forces
met on the road in the darkness it
looked as if a clash would come, but
those who had charge of the strikers
prevented a conflict.
The march on Panther Creek valley
was on the strikers program for sev
eral days. Tho United Mine Workers
ever since the strike started have been
attempting to close the collieries of the
Lehigh Coal and Navigation company
in this region. Organizers were con
stantly in the region, but as 'a rule
they did. not meet with much success,
bo it was decided to use stronger meth
ods to get the men employed in the 10
mines out on strike. Accordingly it
was arranged that a big demonstrat
tion should be held in the valley. It
was to have been held Monday, but
owing to the heavy rain and muddy
roads It was called off until Tuesday.
Those who took part were strikers
from McAdoo, Yorktown, Bunker Hill
and Sllverbrook from the south side of
Hazleton and the Freeland, Drifton,
Jeddo and Beaver Meadow strikers
from tho north side. The women and
girls all came from McAdoo, which is
the only borough in tho Hazleton re
gion with organized female marchers.
Ordered to Turn Hack.
Five carriages containing newspaper
correspondents who had been trailing
along at the rear of the procession
were requested to take the lead so
that they would not Interfere with the
plans of the strikers. Following the
newspaper men came the other con
veyances containing tho McAdoo wo
men, then followed a long line of Hun
garians, Italians, Poles, Slavs and English-speaking
mine workers. At a
point about a mile from Coaldalo
there is a sharp turn in the road and
as tho newspaper men rounded It
there came a command of "halt," and
about 30 feet in front of them Btood
Bolld rows of soldiers who were
stretched across the road with bayo
nets fixed. Sheriff Tdolo of Schuyl
kill county was with them. The com
mander of tho troops speaking to (he
waiting crowd said: "In the namt of
tho people of the state of Pennsyl
vania, I command you to disperse and
return whence you came.'
The strikers began to protest that
they could not be stopped on a public
highway and many of them showed a
disposition to resist the soldiers. The
officers in charge of tho troops, how
ever, kept his men in position and the
strikers returned toward Tamaqua.
"Mother" Jones, who was in the
crowd, vehemently protested against
the action of the troops in stopping
tho marchers, but she was shut off and
ordered to move on. The McAdoo wo
men had to be almost pushed along, so
Blowy did they walk. They continual
ly Jeered at tho Boldlers, calling them
all kinds of names, and threatening
them with punishment if they should
dare to visit McAdoo. It took from 3
o'clock until after 6 to drive the crowd
back to Tamaqua.
The soldiers wore eight companies
of th'e Fourth regiment which has been
stationed at Shenandoah. General
Gobln was in command.
When the soldiers had driven the
strikers over the mountain a company
was sent to Tamaqua to quell any dis
turbance the scattering strikers might
stir up there. Further along the road
a company was deployed to protect a
collery while the marchers were pass
ing it. The three companies met at
Tamaqua and scattered tho marchers.
While all this had been going on the
north side marchers had exerything
their own way In the Nesquehonlng
valley. They persuaded enough men
to remain away from the Lehigh Coal
and Navigation company's No. 1 col
liery to cause it to be shut down. Gen
eral Gobin wnt two companies of boI
dlers there ujd restored order.

Bo Think Operators Who Are Pre
paring to Resume Worn
Scranton, Pa., Oct. 1G. Assurance
of the end of tho strike of the anthra
cite miners seems certain in view of
tho preparations being mads all
through the .Lackawanna valley for
the resumption of work. The coal
companies are crowding their mine
sidings with empty cars and the end of
the week will iind thousands of cars n
place where foimerly only hundreds
Were to be seen. This is done in order
to be prepared for the great demand
for coal which will necessitate the
running of the mines and breakers to
their utmost capacity for weeks in or
der to get stock ahead to meet the
Wilkesbarre, Pa., Oct. 1G. Some of
the striking mine workers In the Wy
oming valley are getting restless over
the delay in settling the strike. Many
of them expected to be at work by
Wednesday but it now looks as though
the fifth week would go by without
operations being resumed. The op
erators here are still of one mind and
say "If the men want to return to
work at the 10 per cent increase origi
nally offered they aro at liberty
t do so."
Couldn't Coax Strikers Duck.
Shamokln, Pa., Oct. 16. Despite an
active canvass by a number of men to
induce miners to go to work at collier
ies between here and Hickory Ridge,
none reported for duty and tho per
sons circulating petitions asking men
to resume work pending a settlement
of the terms of tho Scranton conven
tion have been disappointed.
Coaldale, Pa., Oct, 16. The local
union of tho United Mine Work
ers met early and prepared to
welcome In a body the marchers from
Hazleton and vicinity, but the sol
diers got there before the strikers and

enough to permit his doing so if he de
sired. Mr. Bryan prepared no speech
for New York, but talked extemporan
eously in all his meetings there. Mr.
Bryan expresses his gratification on
the success of the Ohio meetings. A
large crowd gathered at the station at

bed was pulled up to the door in plain
view. Wharton Golden, W. H. Culton,
Arthur Goebel and Lieutenant John
Ricketts testified. Colonel Crawford
then made the statement to the jury
for the defense. Youtsey was reported
worse at wdon, his temperature having
Increased and his jaws so tightly clos
cd that no food could be given him.
At the afternoon session the defense
moved to discharge the jury and con
tinue the case because the defendant
was still unconscious and in a worse
condition than before. Judge Cantrill
overruled the motion.
The defense asked that Youtsey be
called as a witness. Tho sheriff called
Youtsey, but he did not answer. The
defense asked that he bo brought Into
"He is already In court," said the
"We want him on the witness
stand," said Colonel Nelson.
"Very well, bring him in, Mr. Sheriff
and put him on the stand," said the
judge. Tho deputies and guards
brought Youtsey in on his bed and set
it down in front of the jury. Colonel
Nelson asked Youtsey several ques
tions, but got no response, the defend
ant lying a3 one dead on his bed.
"We can get no response from the
witness," said NelBon.
"Very well, let him stand aside,"
said the-judg;, and the bed was carried
back to the jury room.

tion to discharge the jury because tho

ing his accusers, but simply an un
conscious body. The Judge said the
law provided that before lie could dis
charge the jury the defendant must
be adjudged a lunatic.

Washington, Oct. 16. The American
share of the loot at Tien Tsin is
larger than at first reported. It has
been understood that ail the Americans
took after the capture of Tien Tsin
was gold amounting in value to ?278,
000. This report arose from the fart
that Li Hung Chang asked General
Chaffee to restore that sum to the Chi
nese government. It now appears that
this ?27S,000 was only the value of
gold coins and gold bars taken from
the Chinese treasury at Tien Tsin and
apparently it was only tho money
which concerned Earl LI as a govern
Things of value were also obtained
from other sources and it is now re
ported that the total value of the loot
will reach a figure about ?100,000 in
excess of tho amount originally re
ported. The gold coin and gold bars
taken from the treasury were melted
by order of General Chaffee. Nothing
is yet known about similar seizures in
Peking or at points along the line of
march. The total value of the seizures
will probably be very high. Li Hung
Chang's request for the ?27S,000 taken
from the treasury has received no re
ply. There is considerable doubt
whether the United States is entitled
to keep this gold, whatever Its amounts
may finally determined to be, because
tills government has been proceeding
on the theory that no war exists in
China. Nevertheless it Is extremely
unlikely that the gold will ever be re
turned to China, even that part of it
identified and claimed by Li Hung
Chang. It may not be held as spoils
of war for the reason given, but It
will probably be held as part payment
