BBEATHESICH OF RELIEF.
GREAT STRIKE OF MINE WORK
ERS DECLARED OFF.
Vote of the Convention Was Unani
mous to Accept President Roose
velt's Proposition, and Leave Set
tlement of Differences to Commis
sion Strike Commission Has Been
Called to Meet This Week.
Wilkesbarre, Oct. 22. With a shout
that fairly shook the convention build
ing, the report was received that 117.
U00 mine workers who had been on
strike since last May, had officially de
clared off at noon today the greatest
contest ever waged between capital and
labor, and placed all questions involv
ed In the struggle Into the hands of
the arbitration commission appointed
by President Roosevelt. When the
news was sent to the towns and vil
lages down in the valleys and on thrj
mountains of the coal regions the strike
affected, the inhabitants brpathed a
sigh of relief. Everywhere there was
rejoicing and in many places the end
of the strike was the signal for im
promptu town celebrations. While the
large family of mine workers and their
families, numbering approximately half
a million persons are grateful work is
to be resumed Thursday, the strikers
have still to learn what their reward
will be. President Roosevelt having
taken prompt action in calling the ar
bitrators together for their first meet
ing Friday, the miners hope they will
know by Thanksgiving day what prac-
... -. f. . ma,ip
The vote to resume mining was unan
imous and was reached only after a
warm debate. The principal objection
to accepting arbitration was that no
provision was contained in the scheme
to take care of those who would lau
to get back their positions or would be
unable to get any work at all. fc-ngi
neers and pumpmen get better pay
than other classes of mine workers and
they did not wish to run the risk of
losing altogether their places and be
compelled to dig coal for a living. This
question came up yesterday and wa3
argued up to the time a vote was tak
en. No one had any definite plan to
offer to overcome the objection, an
the report of the committee on resolu
tions recommending the strike be de
clared off and that all issues be placed
in the hands of the arbitration com
mission for decision was adopted with
out the question being settled. A few
moments before adjournment, how
ever, a partial solution was reached
when a delegate moved the problem be
placed in the hands of the executive
boards for solution, and his suggestion
The principal speech of the day was
made by National Secretary-Treasurer
Wilson, who practically spoke for
Mitchell and the National organization.
In a strong argument he counselled the
men to accept arbitration, the very
plan the strikers themselves had offer
ed, return to work and trust to the
president's tribunal to do them jus
tice. The question of taking care of all
men who fail to get. work immediately
will be a serious one for the union.
There is no doubt the executive boards
will take care of the engineers, firemen
and pumpmen, but there will be thou
sands of other classes of mine workers
who have to be looked after. In some
places hundreds will not be able to get
work for weeks, and in other localities
where the mines are in very bad condi
tion, there will be no employment for
many workmen for some months. Now
that the strike is over the volume of
relief money will decrease and local
unions will be compelled to call upon
national organizations for assistance
when the money now in their hands
runs out. With the close .of the great
conflict will also end, probably this
week, the assessments now being lev
ied on all bituminous mine workers af
filiated with the union. Officials who
care to talk of the situation feel con
fident that the national body will come
to their assistance and help all who
stood out during the suspension.
Hundreds of men needed to repair
mines and otherwise place them in con
dition for operation will be at work to
morrow morning, the convention hav
ing decided this imperative in order to
get the men at work quickly and satis
fy the country's demand for coal. All
locals will hold meetings tomorrow at
which instruction will be given mem
bers regarding their applications for
work. Mitchell received many con
gratulating telegrams from all over th-3
country after the news spread that the
strike had ended.
On his returning to headquarters he
was askeu for an expression of his
views on the action of the convention,
and in reply said: "I am well pleased
with the action of the mine workers in
deciding to submit the issues to the
commission selected by the president
of the United States. The strike itself
has demonstrated the power and digni
ty of labor. Conservative, intelligent
trade unionism has received an ad
vancement the effect of which cannot
be measured. I earnestly hope and
firmly believe that both labor and cap
ital have learned lessons from the
miner's strike which will enable them
to keep peaceful, humane and business
methods of adjusting wage differences
in the future.
After Mitchell had notified President
Roosevelt of the action of the conven
tion and received a reply to the effect
that the commission would me?t in
Washington Friday he sent an official
announcement to the strikers that the
strike was off and advising them to re
port for work Thursday morning. The
notice caused tho miners to exercise
more than usual care in order to avoid
accidents, as the present condition of
the mines are such there will hs great
danger when work is resumed.
Mitchell has not made any arrange
ments regarding future movements. Ho
does not know whether he should go
to Washington. The miners' leader
will act as attorney for the men at all
sessions of the commission and will
have with him several assistants.

ROOSEVELT'S PROMPT ACTION.
Members of Strike Commission Sum
moned by Telegraph to Meet at
National Capital Friday.
Washington, Oct. 22. News of the
termination of the strike was received
by the president with great satisfac
tion. Before a formal telegram from
Mitchell had reached him he had been
informed through the Associated Press
of the convention's favorable action.
Telegrams had been sent members of
the commission summoning them to
meet here Friday. It is probable that
as soon as the commission organizes
President Roosevelt will present a
formal letter of Instructions. The first
step of the commission will be to take
testimony of the miners, who will be
regnrded as plaintiffs in the case. Both
sides will be Informed they are to be
present either personally or by coun
sel. The first testimony will probably
be heprd at Wilkesbarre and then in
Philadelphia and New York. It is prob
able thnt during the taking of testi
mony reporters of the press will be
present. How long the hearings will
continue nobody can foretell. At the
conclusion each member of the com
mission will be supplied with a copy
of the testimony and will consider it
at his leosure. Subsequently the com
mission will reconvene, perhaps In this
city, to formulate its report for presen
tation to the president.

TWENTY-NINE MEN LOSE THEIR
LIVES IN FIRE
Chicago Sugar Refinery at Taylor
Street and Chicago River Reduced
to a Mass of Ruins Inside of Half
an Hour Fire Was Caused by an
Explosion Two Men Jumped from
Seventh Story to the Pavement.
Chicago, Oct. 22. By a fire which
broke out shortly before midnight in
the Glucose Sugar Refinery, at Taylor
street and Chicago River, the factory
was almost entirely destroyed, and It is
said twenty-nine men lost their lives.
The number of dead has not been es
tablished, but It is known they were In
the building and all were working on
the seventh floor. The flames spread so
rapidly that a man working on the
third floor had barely time to escape
with his life, and it It not thought the
men in the upper story could have
avoided death. At midnight two bod
ies were taken from the ruins, but the
fire was burning so fiercely it was im
possible to make further search.
The plant consisted of three build
ings, the drying house, seven stories in
height, the main refinery, four stories
high, and another structure four stor
ies high. The fire started In the dry
ing house, being caused by an explo
sion. By the time the first of the fire
department arrived the building was
ablaze from foundation to roof. It was
impossible for the firemen to make any
effective fight, and in a short time the
walls were down and the building was
a mass of ruins in half an hour. The
fire was so hot it was feared the Tay
lor street viaduct, across which access
is had to the South side of the city,
would be destroyed, but the firemen
saved this after a hard struggle. They
bent every effort toward saving the
fourteen-story refinery, but so intense
was the fire in the drying house that
this caught fire in several places and
at 12:30 a. m. it was evident, even if it
could be saved at all, it would be badly
All the men on the three lower floors
of the dry house escaped. Those on the
seventh had no chance whatever for
their lives. Several of them left the
windows and crawled along the sills In
an effort to reach a place of safety, but
all except two made up their minds this
meant certain death. Those two sprang
into the air, and struck the pavement,
so horribly mangled it was impossible
to identify them. These are the bodies
said to have been taken out. Four oth
ers who jumped from the fourth floor
were terribly injured and taken to a
