Miners' leaders Determined to Ask Increase of Ten Per Cent. "Stand or fall together" waa the sentiment of the convention of the United Mineworkers of America when it closed discussion in Indianapolis of the prospective strike of the bitu minous coal miners. Union officials declared that the bituminous miners are determined to demand an increase of wages of 10, per cent or more, that no one district organization shall sign the uniform wage contract till all dis tricts shall sign, and if a strike is inevitable in one or more districts, all shall strike. Francis Feehan, presi dent of the Western Pennsylvania dis trict, said his conviction was that th organization should issue an ultima turn that a strike in all districts will be called on April 1 If an Increase of wages of more than 10 per cent be not given, to go into effect on that date.

Fall. While attempting to escape from the naval prison at Portsmouth, N. H., tnree men were shot by guards, one being killed, and the other two badly wounded. The dead man Is R F Spurllng, of Indianapolis. The wound ed are Harry McGarvey and Albert J. Montgomery. The men were serving anon terms ror minor offenses. At the end of the noon hour, when the prisoners were marching back to their places of employment in the yard, thoy maae tnelr dash for liberty. They were shot while attempting to cross the I'iscataqua River In a skiff. While the sufferings In the poorer dis tricts of the flooilad Buburbs was be yond description, the wealthier quar ters were no less affected. Hundreds who are known to fame for wealth and ancient lineage were little better off thun their poorer fellow sufferers. The extent of the disaster has so overwhelmed every one that no man. from the president of the republic down, can realize the exact extent, much less renort it In detail. As an example of the siege, prices charged ior a bottle holding a quart of kero sene cost U, and candles sold at 15 cents apiece. The fact that Paris sits upon a crust of earth, over vast systems of tunnels and sewers and subterranean streams, added materially to the danger ot the situation. The caving in of streets be came an alarming feature of the Inun dation. To what extent the flood) rushing through the underground pas sages will yet break down the founda tions ot the city is a problem ot the greatest gravity. While the torrents above ground were dreadful enough the mystery of what may happen below the surface weighs upon the city. There is good reason to hope that the ruin wrought by the flood will not be nearly so great as that which tha alarm of the whole world imagines for the beautiful capital ot Europe. At best, however, the loss and suffering will be enormous. EX-AMBASSADOR DRAPER DIES. Qvaaral Wku Held Ioat at Hour Paaara Anray In Washington. Brigadier General William F.
