THE STRIKE SITUATION TODAY
Hazleton, Oct. 19. About XOO
strikers made a descent on No. 4
Jeddo mines, of Markle & Co-, at
O&tcdale this morning, and claim they
shut the colliery up, but Markle says
his mine is still" working. The march
was well planned, and kept a strict
secret. There is a force of sheriiT
deputies on duty but they are kept in
the background. . No one was seri
ously hurt, but one man going to
work was set upon by the strikers and
beaten, but no others menaced.

as part of the Increase in v:i;ps to eon-

the mine workers' olli.-ers were direct

another miners convention will be) nec

to the date is as follows: "In further
explanation of th ealiove notice, this
company desires to say that it is its In

thereafter until further notice."
The following statement was issued
to tne press: "The representatives of

to inquiries that they had offered their

of a decrease In the cost of powder In

The powder question, they one and al

Hazleton. Pa.. Oct. 1. As far a end
ing the coal miners strike is nm-erned
not a move in that direction was made
bv the T'nlted Mine Workers officials
yesterday. President Mitchell is abso
lutely silent on all questions jiertain
inir to the termination of the contest,
and it is not believed that he will have
anything to say on the subject until
he calls a meeting of the national ex
ecutive board for the purjMse of con
sidering the question of issuing a for
mal declaration calling the strike off.
When that shall be depends, it is un
derstood, entirely upon the operators.
The feeling is prevalent here that the
decision of the operators' meeting at
Scranton to insist that the reduction
in the price of iwdcr must be taken
Into consideration in determining the
tiet 1i per cent, increase in wages, has
complicated matters somewhat.
Further delay In reaching an amica
ble adjustment of the trouble is now
fiared. The situation otherwise is pre

of humanity they were given by far
the most enthusiastic greeting of the

bowed his acknowledgements to the
throng in front, and he did so laugh
fugly as the women waved their hand
kerchiefs. It was after 11 p. 111. when
Hanna concluded his speeches here,
and he was at once driven to the spe

morning for Sioux City, t hence into
