rn.rpi Cnaaa. CoL. June 10. Tho
labor difficulty in this district waa set
tled last night by definite agreement,
first, between Messrs. Hagersman, Mof
fat, and the small mine owners at Colo
rado Springs, and second between the
county commissioner and Oen. Brooks,
at a meeting held at military head
quarters in. Altman. The terms
of this agreement are: First,
that the deputies will be at once with
drawn from the camp; second, that the
mine owners shaU be given Immediate
and peaceable possession of their prop
erty; third, that the mllltla shall furn
ish protection equally to miners and
the mines; fouf th, that troops shall re
main in the district at least thirty
days and as much longer as tile com
manding officer may dee m necessary to
secure perfect smoothness in the opera
tion of the mines; fifth, the miners are
to deliver up to tho commanding gen
eral all arms of their own and those
taken from others, together with all
personal property belonging to others,
borrowed or otherwise acquired, and
all material taken from .mines:
sixth, troops are to be sta
tioned at Cripple Creek, Barry
and Victor with headquarters at Alt
wan; seventh, persons for whom the
sheriff has warrants shall be atrested
by Gen. Brooks and shall be turned
over to the sheriff at Colorado Springs.
The deputies broke camp at Victor yes
terday morning at 10 o'clock and started
ht once for Colorado Springs, where
they will disband.
The matter of opening the mines was
also freely discussed, and most of the
owners nresent were in favor oi start
ing work as soon as possible and giving
Gen. Brooks a full opportunity to
show that he can and will per
forin whnt he has nromised. Tho
chances are, therefore, that some of the
mines will be opened to-day, and un
less Gov. Waite changes his mind and
sends new orders to Gen. Brooks the
whole district will be in operation
within a week.
RAISED THE PRICE.
Lund Condemned for a National Tark Near
Chattanooga, Tenn.
Chaitaxoooa, Tenn., June 10. Sev
eral months ago the government con
demned twelve acres of land north ol
Sherman heights, upon which was lo
cated what were known as Sherman's
old earthworks, and sought to purchase
the property frcm Squire Ford, its
owner, for the purpose of making a na
tional park of the land, and it was in
tended to spend $250,000 on the work,
but Squire Ford asked such an ex
orbitant price that a jury was named
to assess the value.
The jury brought in an assessment
of S400 per acre. This suited neither
the owner or the government, and the
jury was discharged. Another jury
was then appointed, who went through
the same tactics of examining prop
erty and surprised everybody Saturday
by bringing in a report assessing value
of the property at $825 per acre. An
appeal will be taken to-day and Judge
Key will try the case soon.
COXEY, BROWN AND JONES,
The Leaders of the Commonweal, Released
from Prison.
Washington-, June 11. Coxey, Brown
and Jones, the leaders of the common
weal were released from jail atOo'ehx-k
yesterday morning. No demonstration
attended their departure. They shook
hands with the deputy warden and
watch officers, thanked them for their
considerate treatment and entered
carriage driven by Oklahoma Sam, and
drawn by four commonweal horses.
At the district line the 'wealers from
the camp were drawn up in line to re
ceive the distinguished party. Thev
unhitched the horses and themselves
hauled the liberated leaders to the
camp. Coxey and ltrowne spoke dur
ing the afternoon. Coxey said it now
looked as though the men might ex
tend their stay at the capital into the
winter. He said he was going to make
an address on the Fourth of July at
Knoxville, Ky., for which he would be
paid $250. He also had other engage
ments to speak during the past month.
In speaking of his chances for elec
tion to congress, Mr. Coxey said he was
not acquainted with the situation of
affairs in the Massillon district, as he
had not been at home for about three
months. Advices received from friends
there, however, indicated that he would
be successful.

The Effort to Have the Tariff Law Co Into

Washington, June 11. The fourth
draft of the pending tariff bill which
was laid before the senate for consid
eration in April last, names the 30th
of June as the time when the law shall
go Into effect That day ends the fiscal
year, and throughout all the prolonged
debate which has since occupied the
senate, Mr. Jones and Mr. Harris have
contended that they would begin col
lecting duties under the new law with
the beginning of the new year.
ihe present condition of things
hardly supports their belief. There arc
several very Important schedules yet to
be considered, to say nothing of mat
ters that have been left open pending
final action when the bill comes out of
the committee 6tage and goes into the
