j PATES SOME TROUBLE IN THE
WEST VIRGINIA FIELDS.
Washington. 'Sept. 21.?M. D. Hntch
ford, president, of the United Mine Work?
ers of America, who is here to attend a
nprcial meeting of the oflicers of the
American Federation of Labor, to-day
gave out the following statement:
"To-day will see about 70,000 miners
resume work in the bituminous coal fields
ot the Central States. The strike sener
ally ends to day. This is the middle of
the twelfth week of its duration. It was
brought to a close at our convention held
at Columbus on the 8th to the 11th of the
present month?ten days time beiug
given t > allow the miners and operators
to come together, Illinois and West Vir?
ginia to meet the prices fixed?05 cents a
ton in the Pittsburg district and 50 cents
a ton in Ohio and Indiana, the same to
continue until the end of December.
"The mining situation is not likely to
become disturbed again until the begin?
ning of next yeiir. at which time we will
be able to set tie all differences niuicably
without the necessity of a strike.
"It is well understood that the light
will continue froni^tbo "present time in
all the fields and against all operators
who refuse to meet the fixed rates.
"The greatest trouble is expected In
West Virginia and portions of Illinois. I
am still hopeful, however, Jthnt the oper?
ators of those fields wilPput their mines
in full operation with union men. Fail?
ing to do this we'will fight them as we
have done until the beginning of next
year, nt which time, it is said, tlielr pres?
ent contracts expire."

On December lb, 1870, President Grant

Victory for the Operators?War?

Hazleton, Pa., Sept. 21.?Unless un?
foreseen developments occur, the anthra?
cite coal strike in this region is ended.
To-day 12,000 men?half of tho full com?
plement?went to work at the Honey
Brook coll'ery of tho Benign and Wilkes
harre company, as cid ;30O of the 1,300 at
Pardees Latimer mines, while the Cran
berry, Crystal ltidge aud Harwood col?
lieries, of the same company, uud the
Coxe ccllieries are also at work. j
The employes of the Hazel mines of the
Lehtgh Valley Company are to-uight con- j
sidering the question of returning in the i
morning, and will probably do so. Nearly
5,000 strikers have returned, or will do
so to-morrow, and a little less than that
number are st'U out, with indications in
favor of their joining the workers.
The only incidents of to-day were small
outbreaks at Latimer aud Rckicy, both of
which were quickly subdued by Sheriff
Martin and his deputies. At Latimer the
women attacked the workers with stonea
and clubs. The raid looked forb'd'Mng
for a time, until three companies of the
Thirteenth Regiment, with fixed bayo?
nets, had pressed back and dispersed the
crowns. A number of Butler Valley
miners who wanted to return to work tit
Latimer were tlrlveu back by a body of
armed strikers, who met them as they
came over the mountain, a mile or more
from camp. The disturbance at'Eckley
was an attempt by strikers to intimidate
the men who wanted to work, and was
also quieted down by the troops without

INJUNCTION MA 1)10 PERPETUAL.
Judge Jackson Makes Comments in De?
ciding Against Debs.
Wheeling, W. Va., Sept. 21.?The fea?
ture of interest iu tho openiug session of
the September term of the United States
court for the ^district "of West Virginia
was tho application of ex-Governor A. B.
Fleming, of Fairmont.^to make the in?
junction against Eugene V. Debs and
others perpetual. The governor was act?
ing for his client, the Mouougah Coal
Company, and, as there 'was no appear?
ance for any of the defendants, the in?
junction was made perpetual. In the
course of his reninrKs iu making this de?
cision, Judge Jackson said that if a like
case were presented to him now ht
would mike the same kind of order he
hail made at Parkersbnrg, where the
temporary injunction was issued re?
cently. Continuing, be slid: ,
"There is no reason why tho rights of
property owners should not bo protected
by t he courts. These owners invested
large sums of money in their plant at
Muuongnh, and the bill for injunction
alleged tbe defendants were about to do
things that would lessen the value of the
property, and possibly destroy it. The
injunction abridged no right of the min?
ers, did not interfere with tho right of
free speech, and was a carefully prepared
and well considered^order.
"I instructed my oflicers, iu taking
that injunction to serve it, to stand be?
hind it like the"soldier 'behind the for?
tress, but to keep within the lines of tbe
injunction, and not t'? extend or step be?
yond it, and do nothing except exactly
that which was required."

In conclusion tbe Globe remarks: "The

''The government will 'take its time to

fore the European powers in the shape of

that in his interview Sunday with the

but con lined ?he interview to a moderate
phrase in the statement of the great In?
juries commerce and industry had
suffered in the United States through the
prolongation of the Cuban war. Gen.
Wood ford is said to have added that Sec?
retary Sherman had deslied him to de?
clare to the Spanish government that it
was evidently impossible for Spain to
end the rebellion in a reasonable time,
and further, that if the war was contin?
ued Cuba would be devastated and of uo
utility to Spain or to the Cubaus. In
conclusion, the United Stntes minister is
reported to have insisted, courteously but
firmly upon the necessity ol terminating
the war, declariug that if it was not ter?

Stntes would feel justified in taking
measures to secure tho independence of
The Duke of Tetuan, according to tho
dispatch to the Temps, while protesting
against alleged~Ameriean "pretensions,"
said he would reply officially to the Uni?
ted States minister when the Spanish
court returns to Madrid.
Madrid, Sept. 2.?In oflicial circles here
the greatest secrecy is maintained regard?
ing the United States [ultimatum, which
is looked upon as bound to cause a great
sensation iu Europe? and to have the
greatest consequences for Spain. While
not intending it, it is .believed the action
of tho United States has greatly facili?
tated a solution of the ministerial crisis,
and there will be a reorganization of the
Conservatives under Gen. A'/carrntia, the
premier, and Don Francisco Silvella, the
leader of t he Dissident Conservatives.
Washington, Sept. 21. ? United States
Minister WoodTord has reported to tho
fttiUe Department the fact that ho had a
conlerence in Madrid on Sunday with the
Duke of Tetuan, Spanish minister of for?
eign affairs. The State Department de?
clines to make known the nature of Min?
ister Woodfor?"s report.
It can be stated authoritatively, how?
ever, in reference to the Pails publica?
tion, purporting to give the substance of
General Woodfonl's communication to
the Duke of Tetuan, that there has been
n misapprehension on several important
po'nts, notably in respect to an ultima?
tum and the setting of a time limit for
the conclusion of the war. Instead of
fixing the end of October next as the date
for the termination of the war, that par?
ticular date was mentioned [as the time
when the Spanish court would return to
Madrid from San Sebastian, and when,
consequently, it might he iu order to re?

at the State Department that while Mr.
Woodford did, according to the. original
idea of his instructions, set out the deep

nessing a cessation of the deplor.iblo con

an ultin atum, but simply made a state?
ment of our deep interest in a settlement
of the Cuban war as a reasonable expla?
nation for intervening iu any manner at
Mr. Woodfonl's telegram regarding his
conference tvith the duke of Tetuan is
now before President McKinley. That
nothing so important as .iii ultimatum
has been delivered to Spain is evident
from the fact that President McKinley
