Tlic Conference Bctvreen Illinois
Operators and the Miners Comes to
Nuuelit mid the Struggle "Will Be
Continued Indefinitely.
Pittsburg, Pa., May 30.—1There were
fty reporters present at the meeting of
the representatives of tho Pittsburg coal
operators to-day which was called to
hear the report of the committee of fif
teen who had been appointed to formu
late a plan for settlement of the strike.
As announced yesterday this committee
v!c: t-- agree on any rhu and they
iskc-d that it be discharged. The reiju -st
was granted and immediately aftcr-.v ,rd
/loxamkr Demp^l suggested that a
mmittee of ten be appointed to take
the place of the .discharged committee,
but with unlimited power to act. The
svggi stion was acted upon without much
discission, and the following committee
was selected: M. II. 'laylur, chairman
Thomas Young, U. A. Andrews, D. W.
Schlendeberg, F. L. Rolrl-ins, Alex Demp
ster, R. H. Boyle. John Blythe, B. B.
Braznell and W. P. Dearmitt. The in
structions given the committee denote a
general will on the part of the strikers
to wind up the strrke with all possible
haste and at the best, terms to be se
cured. The committee has full power to
act for the Pittsburg operators, and can
settle for the district at any time they
may see lit. This is a decided change
of mind on the part of the operators as
expressed at the Cleveland conference,
and taken together with the favorable
aspect of affairs iu Illinois seems to in
dicate that the end of the great strike
is near at hand.
Oskaloosa, Iowa. May 30.-The camps
of the striking miners increased to about.
000 men near hero to-daj*. but no out
lneak has occurred yet. The governor
has placed the national guard at the
disposition of the sheriff and a largo
number oi deputies armed to preserve
peace. The mcst of tho men are now
camped here from the southern portion
of the stale and talk very loudly about
what they intend to do. Most of them
are foreigners and seem determined to
have a row, and most of the working
miners are anxious to accommodate t.licni.
The adjutant general is making all need
ful preparations to meet any trouble.
Minonlc, 111., May 30.—The coal strike
at this place, so far as any active dem
onstration is concerned, is thought to be
practically over. All of the militia is now
gone and Sheriff Toole has discharged
nearly all of his deputies. At A\ enona
aud Lasalle to-day everything is quiet.
^Cripple Creek, C'olo., May 31.—A heavy
dowpoi of rain has made the ro ids al
most impassible. It is not believed ihe
army of deputies will move until to
morrow. The strikers expect the depu
ties will approach from three directions
simultaneously. It is (-aid they have
id mines of dynamite under all the ap
proaches of Bull Iliil which can bo
touched off by electricity, thus destrov
ing the enemy. Two formidable le
doubles on the line of the lorence &
Cr'j pie Creek railway in the canyon near
the Wilbur were built during the night
rnd it will be easy for a small force sta
tioned there to repulse 1,000 men.
Oskaloosa, Iowa, May J1.—Tho strike
situation is practically unchanged, but
the outside strikers have been making
such threats of what will be done to
morrow that Ad.it. Prime has called out
four companies of miliiia. They will
arrive at Evans at midnight. The work
ing miners will be protected and the
n.ir.es will run to-morrow. Italians and
Austriuns arc coming in from Seymour
to aid the strikers, and a general rally
is threatened, but peace will be preserved
and the hot heads cared for. Mayor
John Loper of Des Moines has command
of the troops. Gen. Prime remains here.
Columbus, Ohio, Mc.y 31—The trouble
at Gloucester has been settled peaceably.
A telegram was received at. the gov
from Sheriff Riley of Alli­
ens county, stating that the Toledo &
Ohio Central railway had agreed to
capitulate to the miners and no more
V.'es! Virginia coal would be hauled dur
ing the strike. The sheriff asked that
tin- call for troops be revoked- Five
companies of the Seventeenth regiment,
were under arms ready to proceed to
Gloucester, and Battery of Columbus
was on its way io the union depot when
the i.ews of the settlement of the trouble
was received.
Pa ii a. 111.. May 31.-The striking min

The call slated that the meeting was a
joint one of miners and operators and
miners, but the former failed to put in
an appearance.
Springfield, .lune 1.—The coal operators
conference was called to order with
C. Biowli of this city as chairman^ and
Paul Morton of Chicago secretary. Forry
operrtors were present. 'I-hi* central aud
southern operators were not present, aud
said I hey would not go into the confer
ence unless the consolidated and larger
operators did. Th t-maller operators
were afraid of being speeded by the larger
ones. The conference adjourned without,
i.etion and the fight is now on to the fin
ish and there wilt be no compiouiise.
Danville. 111., .Tune I.—Matters are get
ting desperate with the striking miners
in the Danville field. Many of the fami
lies are starving. Relief committees can
vass tile farmers for fifteen miles for
something to eat. St. Elizabeth hospital
of this city is out of coal ar.d its patients
are suffering for want of food and
warmth. The miners refuse to allow the
sisters coal. They propose to stop all
trains carrying coal and are stopping
freight trains and examining the box cars
Io see if they contain coal.
S f.tdale. Pa., .Tune 1.—The situation
in the coke region is quiet and peaceable.
The strike leaders say the governor's
1 reclamation was not intended to sup
press meetings and marchings any more
than it was to do away with the deputies
and their Winchesters. Meetings of the
strikers will continue as usual. Two car
loads of negroes were imported last night
for the Frick Standard plant, and forty
two Austrians have been run into the
Moyer works of the Rainey company.
Birmingham. Ala.. June 1.—The com
mittee appointed by the citizens' mass
meeting to confer with the operators' and
miners' committee, with a. view of adjust
ing tlm strike-, if possible, met tlie opera
tors. After a prolonged conference noth
ing was accomplished, the operators de
clining to icredo from their original prop
osition of 20 per cent reduction. The
operators believe they have about won
the tight, but, the strikers are firm yet.
Cripple (.'reek, Col., June 1.—The war
clouds that, hover over Buli 11 ill and
Battle Mountain look very threatening.
A rumor has reached tho camp that the
deputies arc preparing to advance toward
Bull Ilill, and the miners are preparing
to give them a warm reception. There is
no truth in tin rumor that: the miners
have a lot of deputies prisoners." The
strikers are making prisoners of men
whom they consider dangerous to 1heir
safety, and ii: is stated that fifty persons
are thus held in custody.
Oskaloosa, Iowa. June 1.—The presence
of the military companies at Evans yes
terday seemed to dishearten the strikers
for a time, but they rallied from their
surprise and marched to this city in a
body, where a great mass meeting was
held in the public square. The speakers
disdained any intention to do violence,
and scored the calling out of the troops.
It was asserted that it was not. a strike,
but merely a suspension of labor, and
that they proposed to stand firm until
the demands were satisfied in other
Keolcu.k, Iowa, June 1.—A delegation
of strikers marched from Centervillo to
Deania and forced the miners in a pri
vate mine operated for the Keokuk &

Although very little regard is paid
in Newport, to what are called iu Mas
sachusetts undersized lobsters, for the
sale of which there is a heavy penalty,
Wednesday a lobster was captured by
a fisherman named George Sirus which
completely eclipses anything before
found there. Tho lobster was upward
of twenty inches long and weighed
some seventeen pounds. An old salt
who was near by when the question of
age was brought up pronounced liim
to be at least four score. The lobster
was caught iu an ordinary trap, except
that he was not caught in the usual
way. He was so large that lie could
not. enter as lobsters dei, but while
around the entrance It" in some way
became entangled in the woodwork
forming the lobster pot and was borne
to the surface and extricated. One
of the large claws had become almost
devoid of life, while the other, though
not at all frisky, was callable of giv
