Expectations that Men Wonld Go to
Work Not Realised.
Shamokin, Pa., Oct. 2. Although
superintendents of the numerous col
lieries in this portion of the Xinth
United Mine Workers district at
tempted to start up their mines, few,
if tny, men went to work. A few busi
ness people expected there would be
a stampede of employes of the Read

ground on account of the company
granting an increase of ten per cent,
but they were disappointed.
Less Than Isnnl Showed lp.
If unything, less men showed up at
the Heading company's working than

strikers and their leaders having can
vassed the workmen thoroughly af

that nothing was said about a reason

Philadelphia, Oct. 2. According tc
he official report of General Super
intendent 11. C. Luther of the Reading
Coal and Iron Co.'s mines to l'resi-!
dent Harris, but seven of the 39 col
lieries operated by the company are
running. This indicates that, in spite
of the offer of an advance in wages of
ten per cent., the company is working
five less mines than on Saturday. The
five collieries that failed to open are;
Potts, Ecgle Hill, Wadesville, Silver

I HERE'S A BETTER PROSPECT.
A Complain Agreement, Following the
American Lead, in Sight
Washington, Oct. 3. Favorable
news has reached Washington from
the European chancellories indicating
that a complete agreement as toChina
is within sight. The agreement will
be on the basis of the propositions
laid down by Secretary Hay in his
note of July 3, and the subsequent
notes treating on that subject.
The accord of Russia with the Unit
ed States is more complete than was
anticipated at first, and the reports
show that all of the European na
tions, probably, are placing them
selves in position to take advantage
of the opening made by the United
States, and soon will be ready to be
gin negotiations for a settlement with
the Chinese government. The Itus
sians already have given notice of
such purpose, and while the text of
the French note on this subject re
ferred to in yesterday's press dis
patches, has not reached the stat-5
department, the oflicials are satisfied
that this is correctly reported and
that France, like Russia, is ready to
negotiate at once.
As for Germany, either the position
of that government has been misun
derstood or it has sustained a change
of mind. Possibly the former is the
case, but, however that may be, it is
quite certain, from the advices which
have reached Washington, that the
German government, upon careful in
spection of the plans for a settlement
projected by the United States, finds
therein nothing inconsistent with the
German aspirations. Therefore, it
may be expected that Germany, too,
will be prepared soon to join in this
common movement toward a settle
ment. It may be stated that alto
gether the prospects of an adjust
ment of the Chinese difficulty without
resort to formal war are very much
brighter than they were one week
The new developments of the day
were few, being confined to a cable
gram from Mr. Conger reciting the de
parture of the Russian minister and
suite from IVkin. and an authentica
tion by Minister Wu, of the edict pro
viding for the punishment of Tuan
and the guilty princes.
Received Orders to Shoot Foreigners,
Berlin, Oct. 3. Official advices from
Pekin, dated September 23, assert that
a further examination of the Chinese
non-commissioned officer, accused of
the murder of ISaron Von Ketteler re
sulted in this statement:
"On June 21, I and my people re
ceived orders from a prince to shoot
foreigners wherever we came across
The accused, it appears, denied that
the order was to shoot a minister, or
the German minister, and he declared
himself unable to say which prince
gave the order.

Paris, Oct. 3. An official of the
French foreign office has formally
confirmed the accuracv of the detail)
of France's note to the powers on
the Chinese question, as telegraphed
from Vienna Monday night.which are.
in substance, as follows:
Substance of the Note.
The note recommends that the pow
ers shall insist upon the punishment of
the instigators of the outrages and
of the lenders of the Boxers. It advo
cates immediate negotiations with
the Chinese plenipotentiaries regard
ing the material compensation to be
demanded on account of the damage
inflicted upon the missions and the
commercial interests of individuals
who suffered through the connivanca
or negligence of the Chinese govern
ment, these negotiations to include
also consideration of the indemnity
due to the powers themselves. Guar
antees are also to be demanded to
prevent the recurrence of the out
France, in this note, makes the ad
ditional suggestions that the Chinese
trade in arms and ammunition be pro
hibited, the forts between Pekin and
Taku destroyed, and a permanent
guard established in each legation at
Pekin, with the idea that this latter
shall eventually become a composite
OfBeiul I iterances.
A press representative questioned
the official referred to as to th
causesactuating the French minister
of foreign affairs in issuing the note.
The oftieinl said:
"M. Delcasse has been contemplat
ing this action for a numlier of days.
France wants peace and desires it ex
peditiously. The minister is there
fore anxious to find a middle course
between Russia and Germany which
will meet with the approval of all.
There is no foundation for the state
ment that an effort is making to se
cure continental accord to the detri
ment of England or the United States,
We are unable to understand exactly
the course the United States intend
to pursue, whether she will act en
tirely separate under all conditions,
or whether she will negotiate 'in cor-
eert with the other powers in case
they reach an agreement satisfac
tory to her.
As Germany Note Is t'nderstood.
"Germany's note, as understood
here, presents two propositions, one
other the peace proceedings. While
some peeple interpret it as meaning
that the first is an absolute condition
preliminary to the second, we see no
reason why the powers should not
proceed with the treaty preliminaries
with those appointed emissaries of
China at Pekin, while the armies seek
out and punish Prince Tuan and his
Hopes United Stntes Will Acquiesce.
There is no incompatability which
will not permit the two factions from
occurring simultaneously. Our hope is
for an agreement to begin negotia
tions, and the note expresses M. Del
case's ideas of how best, that end
can be secured. We feel there is noth
ing in it antagonistic to the interests
of the United States and trust we
will receive her acquiescence."

it is estimated that the amount of

THE GREAT VEILED PRCPHET,
Loads a "Procession of the Nations'
Through the Streets of the
" Mound City.
St. Louis, Oct. 3. The parade of the
V eiled Prophet, which has annually de
lighted denizen and visitor, old and
young, since many middle-aged spec
tators first view it from the arms of
fond parents, was last night, if not so
dazzlingly beautiful as on some form
er occasions, at least up-to-date in its
design and of special interest to the
dweller on the stepping-off place of
the mnteenth century. It represented
the "Pagent of Nations," and al
though the order of procession was
faulty, that fact was charitably over
looked by the cheerful specta-
tors who hailed each float as it ap
proached and passed by with generous
applause, each doubtless stirrin:
sacred memories of home and father
land in the breasts of many in the
cosmopolitan half-million who densely
lined the streets along all the miles
traversed by the parade.
By far the most generous applause
was bestowed on the allegory repre
senting "Missouri;" next to this, all
America appealed most powerfully to
the patriotism of the spectators, and
whatever may have been the prevail
ing sentiment of the crowds on "im
perialism," the fact remains that
"Our New Possessions" received th
next greatest meed of applause.
Of the floats representing foreign
nations, that bearing the crown-im
perial of Great Britain, with John
Bull comfortably seated therein, re
ceived the most demonstrative recog
nition. After that, and as showing
the forgiving tpirit and generosity
to a fallen foe of the American citi
zen, the Spanish float awoke echoes
of applause. None of the floats failed
to please the casual observer or to
instruct the closer student.
One point wherein the management
of the great pageant can make an
improvement in the future will be in
the better instruction of the satellites
carrying the torches attending the
floats, and who, last night, showed
great lack of drill, as often throwing
their dazzling lights into the eyes ot
the spectators as upon the gauze and
tinsel thev were intended to illumine,
As a whole, the pageant, though not
brilliant, was a gratifying success and
added much to the popularity of the
mysterious personage in whose hono
t was undertaken.

spectacle was composed of 20 elabor

histological, mythological, religious
and comic events.

CEDAR LAKE HEAD MYSTERY.
The Theory Broached tout It Slay be
the Minnine Head of
Chicago. Oct. 3. Experts on bones
will le called upon to determine the
haracter of the skull found in Cedar
lake. A portion of the scalp and
some teeth were dragged from the
lake, Monday, by a seaching party,
but no other liortion of the body was
found. Sheriff Lawrence of Crown
Point. Ind., savs:
'Although we are completely at sea
regarding the identity of the unfor
tunate whose head was found in Ce
dar lake, yet we have two points
worked out which may enable us to
eventually clear up the mystery. The
head ip that of a woman, and. she was
a resident of, or had visited a large
city. The mouth plate and the two
false teeth attached to it tell thin
story. We have had several dentists
examine the plate. They all say it
is from the mouth of a medium-sized
woman that it is too small to have
been from the mouth of a man."
Sheriff Lawrence has also evolved
a startling theory in the mysterious
find, that the head is none other
than that of Pearl Bryan, who was
murdered at Covington, Ky., a few
The head of Miss Bryan was taken
away in a gunnysack like that which
inclosed the find in Cedar lake, and
she wore a plate in her month.
Acting on this theory, Sheriff Law
rence has instructed his deputy tc
write to the father of Pearl Bryan
giving a full account of the finding
of the head and a description of the

Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound is Especially Successful in
Curing this Fatal Woman's Disease.
Of all the diseases known with which the female organism is afflicted, kidney
disease is the most fatal. In fact, unless early and correct treatment is ap
plied, the weary patient seldom survives.
Being fully aware of this, Mrs. Pinkham, early in her career, cave ex
haustive study to the subject, and in producing her great remedy for woman's
ills Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound was careful to see that it
contained the correct combination of herbs which was sure to control that
fatal disease, woman's kidney troubles. The Vegetable Compound sets in har
mony with the laws- that govern the entire female system, and while there
are many so called remedies for kidney troubles, Lydia . Pinkham's Vege
table Compound is the only one especially prepared for women.
The following letters will show how marvellously successful it is :
