Action Delayed Until the Coke Sttike Is
Settled, and the Demand fur Eight
Hour Not To Be Knforced May 1
What Secretary McBride Says An Al
leged Conference with Gompers Evic
tion. In the Coke Region The
Troubles at Detroit.
Columbus, O., April 'JS. There will be
no strike of the coal miners on May 1 to
enforce the demand for the eight-hour
day. That decision was made by the na
tional executive board of the United Mine
Workers here yesterday and the order to
that effect was being sent to the local as
semblies last night. To-day the official
announcement was made. Secretary Pat
rick McBride said last night in explana
tion of the matter that it was not done
because it was found that the miners did
not want it, but they found that the pro
prietors who would be most easily and
quickly forced to comply with the demand
were those who had always been friendly
and considerate toward the miners. "You
may say," said he, "that the eight-hour
strike has been postponed pending the
great coke strike in Penusylvania."
A Conference with Gompers.
A telegram from New York city says:
"It was state I here yesterday that repre
sentatives of the coal operators had con
ferred with Samuel Gompers, president
of the American Federation of Labor, in
this city Sunday, and that the strike of
miners for eight hours, which vrai to take
place on May 1, had been averted. A re
porter saw Mr. Gompers at his residence
last night, and asked him whether there
was auy truth iu this story. Mr. Gomp
ers seemed to be annoyed at the question,
and said: 'Nothing has been done to-day,
as far as I know, that will affect the de
mand of the miners for eiht hours on
May 1. Whether or not anything will be
done before then I am not in a position to
say. We had a special meeting to-day,
but I am very sorry that I can give no
further informatiou about it.'
"A labor leader whom the reporter saw
after leaving Mr. Gompers, said: "I am
inclined to think that some of the opera
tors came to see Mr. Gompers to try and
arrange a compromise that would extend
to the miners all over the country, aud
that the coufersnce adjourned without
reaching any definite conclusion. I ex
pected all along that there would be a
conference of the heads of both sides.' "

NOT A BLAINE MAN.
lion. D. T. Littler' Comments on Presi
Springfield," Ills., April2S. Hon. D. T.
Littler was asked yesterday what he
thought of the presidential situation. He
said that Blaiue seemed - to have some
thing of a boom at Cincinnati during the
National League convention, but be did
uot think it was gcneml. "I am against
Blaine," he said, "and always have been.
I have not been in a convention since 1ST2
but what Blaine was Hie man that made
the trouble. We ran him for president
once and that was the first time in more
than a quarter of a century that the Re
publican party was defeated. I defy any
man to name a speech, a suggestion or a
law of which James G. Blaine was the
author that will live an hour after his
death. His popularity is something that
I can not understand."
No Chance for Harrison Either.
"As to Mr. Blaine's control of the Irish
vote," Mr. Littler said, "possibly he may
own it, but he certainly did not hold
enough of it in his campaign to win." In
regard to Harrison. Littler seemed to
think that there was no prospect of his
renomination, and he did not think any
man could now name the next Repub
lican candidate for president. He thought
it possible that the Democrats might car
ry the Illinois delegation for Palmer, but
the recent Republican victories in mu
nicipal elections in this state were worth
thousands of votes to the Republican
REV. NEWTON'S THEOLOGY.
lie Plainly Denies an Article of the Apos
New York. April 2S At All Soul's
church Sunday morning Rev. Heber New
ton preached oa "True Faith." It was un
fortunate, he said, that the church had
lost its old time simplicity and that its
creeds had not kept pace with the knowl
edge of man. There were so many in
consistencies between the conclusions that
intelligent men wondered that men could
accept the mandates of the church, aud
yet they were told that they must accept
them entirely or leave the church.
No "Resurrection of the Body."
He spoke of the resurrection as being
ona of the inconsistent things. It was
absurd, he said, to expect an intelligent
mind to believe thai the body will be
resurrected iu the flesh. The church will
only help men to a "true faith" when she
ceases to impose on them a yoke which
they can not bear, to thrust upon them
superstitions which are the very barriers
to a "true faith."
Anna Dickinson's Lecture.
New Yoke, April 2S Miss Anna Dick
inson was sitting up in bed when a re
porter called yesterday. She seemed very
tired and her voice was hoarse. When asked
her plans she said they were in the hands
of her manager. She did not know what
she was to do, but she would prefer to
give weekly lectures in this city rather
than travel, and would prefer the stage to
either. Dr. Seward, her physician, con
demns the newspapers for reporting Miss
Dickinson's lecture in such a way as to
make it appear that she is insane. He
stakes his professional reputation on the
statement that she is sane. The afore
said lecture, which was delivered Sunday
night, was so violent, and the language
was so unseemly, that many of the ladies
left the hall while she was speaking.
A Quiet Sunday at Hoboken.
New Yoke, April 23 Every theatre
and concert hall in Hoboken was closed
Sunday by order of Chief of Police Dono
van, the new law being vigorously en
forced. For years Snnday has been a gala
day in Ilcbokeu, and to shut off all
amusements in that city means the loss
of thousands of dollars to those who have
been catering to the public. There has
ever been a large contingent from with
out the city to support the places of
amusement, nd according to Chief Don
ovan's report, these people have caused
no disturbance. Still war has been de
clared against Sunday amusements by
clergymen and some of the residents.

Blaine and the Presidency.
Washington Crrr, April 2a With
reference to Blaine's position relative to
the presidential nomination, his friends
say so asserts a New York Herald cor
respondent: "Mr. Blaine will bow to the
will of the people. He will not attempt
to overcome the wishes of the Republican
party if it is evident that they want him
lor their candidate. He does not care for
the nomination and will make no effort
to get it, but if he is nominated he will
