To-day will see about 75,000 miners

TKJJB'S QCTXT FBCDICTED. .
"The mining situation is not likely
to become disturbed again until the be
ginning of next year, at which time we
hope to be able to settle wage differ
ences amicably and without the neces
sity of ft strike. It is well understood
that the fight will continue from
the present time in all fields
anil against all operators who refuse to
meet the rates. The great trouble will
be found in West Virginia and por
tion of Illinois. I am still hopeful,
however, that the producers in those
fields will conform to the change, and
put their mines in operation. Failing
to do this, we will fight them as we
have done until the beginning of next
year, at which time it is said their
present contracts will expire.
SATISFIED WITH THZ AGRBI-f EST.
. "I am well satisfied with the agree
ment reached, and feel that it is the
greatest . victory gained by trades
unions lor years. Of course, the victory
is not altogether one of the miners.
While they have done the striking, the
trades unions ana organized ooaies
have supplied the necessaries, without
which the miners could not pos
sibly succeed. It ' is a - vic
tory for organized - labor, and
not- for any particular trade,
and we want our friends who have
helped us to feel that it is their victory
s well as ours. I feel very grateful

of 6I0OOU I uUl Ue Hearing to Coa
laded. WJ&KESBA&K3, Pa., Sept 81. -Sheriff
Martin aud his 64 deputies were given
a preliminary hearing before the court
yesteraay, charged with the killing oz
44 striking miners near Lattimer on
Friday, September 10. :;.
The deputies were brought up from
Hazieton under military escort A
large crowd met them at the
depot, but they proceeded unmo
lested to the courthouse. Judges Lynch
and Bennett presided. Judge Lynch
announced that tbe . judges would
kit as justices of the peace to hear tes
timony in the case. John M. Gorman
opened for the prosecution and stated
that he was employed to investigate
the shooting at Lattimer and inquire
If the sheriff and his deputies were
justified in killing 24 men. . ' '
He began by referring to "Dictator"
Gobin, who refused to allow the dep
uties to be arrested when warrants
were issued ten days ago. ; The attor
ney also referred to Coroner McKee be
ing a major in the -Ninth regiment; to
his manner of procedure in the arrest
of the deputies, and to his bringing
them here surrounded by ft military
company with guns and bayonets.
Mr. Gorman then made a motion ask
ing that the warrants of 'Squire Gor
man be given the preference, aud .that
the deputies be remanded to the regu
lar officers of the law.
Jndge Lynch replied that the judges
did not act hastily, but issued the war
rants after due deliberation. The
judge said that this hearing had noth
ing to do with the conduct of Gen,
Gobin. The court said the witnesses
who were not present should be
brought in, and that the hearing could
be proceeded with such witnesses as
were present Attorneys Gorman and
McGahren then notified the court that
they would withdraw from the case.
District Attorney Fell then took
charge. - Sheriff Martin was seated at
the defendant's table, surrounded by
John Walsh, of Hazle township, was
the first witness, fie said he saw the
strikers coming, aud went out to meet
them and to see what would happen.
Some of the men carried clubs. Wit
ness told them to throw away their
dubs, and they did so. Walsh said he
got on a car and started for Lattimer.
He heard one' of the deputies named
"I don't know what the sheriff means
by taking us around like this without
ordering us to shoot"
lie said the deputies got off the car
near Lattimer. The strikers came up
and witness saw Deputy Hess grab
one of the strikers and cry "Halt"
There was ft scuffle and some one cried
Fire.". There was one shot, then
another, and then ft volley. - The dep
uties kept on shooting as the men ran
away. He aald the fire lasted about
Jonathan Lichensberger, ft Hazle
ton contractor, was the next witness.
He said he was standing about 150
yards from the strikers when the.
trouble began. He saw bheriff Martin
approach the men. The sheriff had ft
paper in his hand which he read.
After reading the proclamation he or
dered the crowd to go back.' Then
they had a scuffle with him. He drew
his revolver, but some one grabbed his
wrist and held up his hand so that he
could not do anything. Then the
shooting began. .
Charles Gassrott, a school-teacher of
Lattimer, testified to seeing Sheriff
Martin scuffling with tbe strikers.
His testimony was much the same as
the preceding witness. .At the con
clusion of Gassrott's testimony the
judges, after ft consultation with Dis
trict Attorney Fell, held all the depu
ties in $4,000 each until the hearing is
Joseph A. Sinn, trust officer of the
City Trust Safe Deposit and Surety Co.
of Philadelphia, qualified as bondsman
in the sum of 9350,000.
After bail had been furnished, a re
cess was taken until 2:30. ,
Several witnesses were examined
this afternoon, bnt the testimony was
merely corroborative of previous wit
nesses. Not a single witness testified
to hearing Sheriff Martin give the
order to fire..
The withdrawal of Attorneys Gor
man and McGahren has weakened the
prosecution, and it is doubtful if the
evidence will be strong enough to hold
the defendants for court The hearing
will be resumed this morning.

that he is responsible only to the in

argued October 13.

Nett Osleass, Sept S3. The local

by r materially lower temperature, tbe

Incubation of 'yellow fever germs re
quires ft sustained Fahrenheit temper
eature of 70, and if the present cool
spell continues, conditions promise
steadily to grow better.
Dr. Touatre, an eminent and experi
enced yellow fever physician, and ft
member of the board of experts, says
in an interview that the records since
1358 show that yellow fever has never
been declared epidemic in any year af
ter its appearance here inside of two or
three months. That was the case in
1853, '53, '67 and IS. . The history of
the epidemics of the last half century
prove that all epidemics waned with
the first cold of October, disappearing
almost entirely, in November. . If we
add month and ft half more to the
period of incubation for foci to estab
lish themselves, we are brought al
most to the end of October to have
an epidemic. An epidemic at that
late date is out of the question.

Fresh arrests have been made, mainly
among the officers attached to the sec
ond police station supposed to be im
plicated in the bloody drama. One ol
the men arrested, named Carmona, U
alleged to be the person who wielded
the dagger so effectively.
Among those arrested are servant
of the inspector-general of police and
the assistant chief detective, it being
believed that they know much of what
took, place, if they were not directly
implicated in the killing. All these
prisoners were consigned to the grim
old prison of Celem. It is aaid that
some of the prisoners, including the
inspector-general and assistant chief
of detectives, are confronted by in
numerable proofs that the police were
the real authors of the crime and have
begun to admit their knowledge of the
affair. Probably the man most inti
mately connected with the affair is
Inspector Ville Vicenzio, of the sec

guised the secret police and gendarmes

"Sir. Taylor was questioned in regard

give the substance of the interview
which took place on Sunday last be
tween Gen. Stewart L. Woodford,
the United States minister ,to Spain,
and : the duke of Tetuan, the
Spanish minister for foreign affairs,
which Gen. Woodford is said to have
insisted courteously, but firmly, upon
the necessity of terminating the war
in Cuba, and to have declared that if it

in taking measures to secure the inde

In reply the former minister said:
, "My lips are sealed until after my

While Mr. Taylor refused to discuss
this matter, his manner tended to con

Begardiog the general feeling in
