trol the grounds encircling the separ

attempted no violence.
Hazleton, Ta., Oct. 25. Presiden.
Mitchell last night announced that lie
would today probably late In the aft
ernoon or evening issue a. statement
defining the position of the United
Mine Workers in the present situation
ef the strike. He also said that his
statement would in all likelihood Indi
cate jvhether the strike -would be im
mediately declared off or whether it
would be continued. This anonunce-
ment was made as a result of yester
day's conference between the national
and district ottieers of the United Mine
Workers. The impression around
headquarters Jast night was that the
statement will contain practically a
declaration that the contest is ended.
Coal companies controlling about 75
per cent, of the anthracite coal prod
uct, it is learned, have posted notices.
but President Mitchell will not say that
all of them comply with the terms of
the Scranton convention.
Leaders Are Summing I'p tlie Situation.
The big companies in this district
that have not posted the notices are
the Lehigh Coal and Navigation com
pany, B. Markle Ac Co., and Coxe
Bros. & Co. The Marklcs have grant
ed no Increase of wages of any kind.
Yesterday's conference was in session
three hours and was adjourned until
this morning. lresident Mitchell at its
conclusion announced that thesituation
was partly canvassed, and that the re
view would be completed today. The
conference discussed plans as to what
should be done in the event of one or
more of the coal companies declinin
to gTant the demand of the miners as
set forth in the resolution adopted at
the Scranton convention. No defanite
conclusion was, however, arrived at.
Question Mitchell Declined to Answer.
Mitchell declined to say whether the
statement of the Lnited Mine Work
ers that no man will be permitted to
return to work unless they all go iu
together still holds good. The notice
posted by several of the larger com
panies lrithe Lackawanna and Wyo
ming regTbns yesterday which an
nounced that the mine workers will le
given 2& cents on every car or ton in
order to make up 10 per cent, came in
for much consideration at the confer-
nce. When the conference adjourned
last evening this matter was still un

II. Watkins. Keese G. Brooks and E. G.

operators, left last night for Philadel-
hia. The independent operators for
years have hcen demanding per
ent. of the tide water price for their
product, instead of u) per cent., as al
lowed them. Now when the action of
he big companies forces them to in-
rease their expense of mining about
per cent, they Insist on their long
standing claim being acceded to.
NEW RULE A3 TO MISSIONS
To Be Toted on at the Episcopal Council
Louisville, Oct. 25. The second day's
2.sjion of the missionary council of
the Episcopal church opened at 9:45
m. yesterday, with Bishop Whipple
presiding. A resolution Indorsing the
ction of the board of managers pro
viding for an increased appropriation
for missionary work was adopted. The
general topic for discussion was "Mis-
ons. the ocntion of the hurcn."
Bishop McKim. of Baltimore, offered
resolution providing for the strlk-
ng out of the word "foreign" In the
name of official missionary society, the
domestic and foreign missionary so
ciety. The resolution provoked lively
iscussion. The point was raised that
Christian missionaries should not le
sent to Christian countries like Cuba
nd Brazil, but Bishop Grafton stated
that In thpse countries, which were
overwhelmingly Human Cathdiie. so
many people were excommunicated
that there were many in need of Chris
tian relisrion. A vote will be taken on
Bishop McKim's proposition.
