I'eace In the anthracite coal region is assured for another three years. President Thomas L.Tewl8 of the United Mine Workers of America, who with the three district presidents had been in conference with a subcommittee of the operators in Philadelphia for two days, made a positive announcement Thursduy night that a new working agreement would be signed before the end of the next week. This contract will be based upon n proposition which has been submitted by the operators, nnd which. In tho opinion of Mr. Ix-wis and his colleagues, contains a number of important concessions. Acting on behalf of the union miners, Mr. Lewis accepted the proposition, subject to the approval of a tri-dlstrlct convention, which was to be held in Scranton the next Tuesday afternoon. There Is little doubt that the men will accept this new offer and will authorize their ofllcers to sign the ngreement. It is believed that the new ngreement will accord recognition in some form to the organizations of anthracite miners, nor ns a branch of the United Mine Work ers of America, but as n distinct hard coal association. The contract will nlso provide that all new work shall be paid according to the wage scale authorized by the strike commission. There will be no Increase of wages, but there will likely be readjustment of wages nt new collieries. DEATH TAKES GOV. LILLEY. Peaceful End of Executive Is in Con trast with Career.

SURVIVORS ARE IN DEEP MISERY War Ships of Powers Land Marines. but Little Progress Is Made Toward Order. The situation In Asiatic Turkey Is one of extreme gravity. How many thousands have been massacred cannot even be cstitunted, because the disturb ances have been so widespread that it Is lnis)sslble to secure details of the happenings of the last ten days. The latest estimates of the number killed In the vilayet of Adaun reaches approx imately 2.,OUO, nnd thousands have been done to death In the towns of oth er diKtilcts. The state of siege which several of the places nre undergoing has brought the Inhabitants to the verge of starvation, and each day brings its tales of further atrocities and the depths of misery and despair to which the savagery of the fanatics has brought the people. Several warships are now In the waters of the disturbed territory, hut the disorders are so far reaching that the efforts of the powers to restore normal conditions have ns yet hardly been felt. A Hrltlsh war ship has been ordered from Alexall drctta to Suediah, where conditions have become worse. AH. the property of the Christians at DJebel Hcreket has been destroyed. The total loss U un known, but It will be enormous. At the town of Adaua more than 100 girls are missing. It is known that twenty-one native pastors have been killed.

A messenger, dispatched for relief by Miss Lambert, the Ameri can missionary, who two days previous sent an appeal to Constantinople, was killed In the streets.
