TERRE HAUTE, Ind., April 20.-At the convention of the Indiana district of the United Mine Workers to-day it became ap parent that the bituminous coal operators", frcm what is known as the northern field, consisting of I'arke and Vermillion counties and the Coal Bluff and Fontantt mines of thi3 county, ' which have one-half the output of the State, will no longer deal with the min-ers organization in lixing wage tchedules. The average pries paid in that Held Is 47 cents. The operators of the south ern Held, which Includes the counties of Greene, Daviess and Knox and part of Sul livan, have appointed a committee to meet with thu miners Thursday and with the refusal of the northern operators to unite in agreeing on a price for mining will ask lor a reduction from 60 to .",1 cents, which la called the "Ohio price." The representat ion at the convention is the smallest at an annual convention in many years and it is the first time that the inlluentlal operators have not been ready to meet with a committee- from the miners' organization. Most of their men have left the organization and consequently there was practically no rep resentation from the northern field. The convention will adept the plan ac cepted by the Illinois miners at their re cent convention for a joint board from the two Stat's to fix wag&s, but with the north ern Indiana operators, v.hj are especial comietitors of the Illinois operators, the Joint toutcL will not b able to accomplish, Us purpose. .National Vice President Kane Is present representing the Illinois miners. The delegates are incensed at the action of the oierators who have withdrawn because, us the miners say, they are the ones who for a year or more have lxen Insisting that the Indiana nners should prevail on tho Illinois men to uphold prices for mining and now when there is a prospect foi doing so the operators prevent united action. This is the eighth annual convention of district eleven, United Mine Workers of America, and rvill probably be In session four days. Nineteen delegates were present wire n State President Knight called the convention to order. The election of olficers will probably be held on Thursday or Fii day. .There are four candidates lor presi dent.

"KING OF CHALDEANS. Queer Story from San Fninciitco Con cern lug; John Joseph Xouri. SAN FRANCISCO, April 20.-The strange ness 6t truth has often been commented on as exceeding the most fanciful flights of fiction. An illustration of this is furnished in the career of' John Joseph Nouri, who has be en crowned patriarch at the Chaldean Pontilical Cathedral at Trichur, Madras, and is ruler over Syrian Chaldeans. Over four years ago he was committed by Judge Walter H. Levy to the asylum for the in sane at Napa, and there he remained until September, when, by the efforts of M. M. Foote, president of the California Asso ciation for the Protection of Persons, he was restored to liberty. The Rev. Chal mers Easton, formerly a Presbyterian min ister in this city, now of Washington. D. C, is credited with having learned tm facts in a letter from the itev. John 11. Barrows, of Chicago, who is at present traveling in India. On June 23, 1802, there cirriveil in this city from India a man who by his dress, his manner and his speech was easily recog nized as an Oriental religious student. Not less remarkable than his appearance was the story he told. He claimed to have iU covered the remains of Noah's ark on the summit of Mount Ararat. When released from the asylum Noun claimed to have been robbed of four medals studded with diamonds valued at 2.Vj), the gilt of the Chaldean Greek Cnurch, ot a negotiable note for $3u0 and of his credentials. Dr. Chalmers Easton believed in him and helped him in his Journey eastward. Litter on he displayed his knowledge of Greek, and in Washington, D. C, at the Smith sonian Institute, translated the helro glyphics on some tablets there with sur prising ease. In taking his journey around the world he traveled on to London and from- there cc.me in May. 1SS4, the story that he intended to sue the United States government for $5,000,000 damages for his ill treatment while on his sojourn here. Now comes the climax to the story in the letter from the Rey. Dr. John H. Barrows, declaring that John Joseph Nouri. the de posed King of the Chaldeans, has been re stored; that his claims have been recog nized, and that the man who was booked as "unkempt and with the lack-luster eye of a lunatic"' is living in splendor in a palace in Trichur. IKE ROGERS KILLED. He Cnptured Cherokee Hill, and V.n Slain by the Hniirilt'w Brother. FORT GIBSON, I. T., April 20. - Ike Rogers, the man who captured Crawford Goklsby, alias Cherokee Bill, camo here on tho 10:20 train to-day and had only alighted on the platform when he was shot by Clar ence Goldsby, a brother of the desperado. Not less than two hundre-d persons were on the depot platform when the shooting occurred. Tho first ball took effect In Rogers's body. Then the people hurried away and Goldsby fired thre shots from a six-shooter into Rogers's head. He then picked up Rogers's Winchester ritle and ran under the car to the other side. There were about lifty ehots exchanged between him and tho crowd, only one bail taking er fect, it striking" a colored man in the face and Inllicttng a painful, but not fatal, wound. The Cherokee frtedintn's payment is going on here and not l?ss than five thou sand people are camped about the town. Rogers was a Cherokt; negro and has been considered a in-aeeful citizen. Clarence Ooldsby, who uid the shooting, is about twtnty-one years old and has always been considered a peaceful, inottensive youth. Excitement is pretty hign, but no trouble has resulte-d.

Action of John E. Redmond' Conven tion Holt by Timothy Harring ton nnd ill Follower. DUBLIN. April 20. There were many prominent Paxnelliteis at tho convention summoned to meet in thi3 city to-day by John F. Redmond. The meeting was private. A resolution was adopted provid ing for the formation of an independent Irish league in which agrarian interests are not to be dominant and which will be founded on "the broader and sounder basis of independent political action for the ben efit of the whole Irish nation." The object of the league will be "civil and religious liberty and no further interference of priests in politics," absolute independence of alliances with any English party and reverting to the old demand for co-ordinate parliaments; the principle of federalism in Mr. Gladstone's home-rule proposals and manhood suffrage which will give the Par nellltes a political majority in Ireland. Tho league will also urge the immediate re dress of Ireland's financial grievances, am nesty for all political prisoners, land law reform and the development and encour agement of labor and the Industrial re sources of the country, etc. A temporary executive committee was selected to draft the plan of organization and to hold of fice ant' the Parnellite convention meets again in October. Mr. Redmond opened the conference with a dispassionate speech, showing that the present condition of the party needed vig orous reorganization. Ho referred to and explained the programme, as already out lined, and proposed that the convention in October should be attended by delegates from all branches of the new league. Fur ther, Mr. Redmond announced his readiness to refcign the chairmanship of the party, or, if they preferred, to remain, as at pres ent, were invited to indulge in the freest expression of opinion. Mr. Timothy Harrington immediately rose, and, in a calm speech, objected ab solutely to the formation of the new league. Many speakers followed, mostly in favor of Mr. Redmond's proposition, and Mr. Harrington's motion against the league's formation was defeated by a vote of 230 to 22. Mr. Harrington then left tho hall with hi3 supporters. Mr. Redmond explained that it was not intended that the party's members of Parliament should control the league. In an interview after the meeting Mr. Harrington said he could not indicate his future course until the country had spoken. He added there was nothing the old league could have done for Mr. Redmond, "except give him the support of the Devov section in America, whlch." Mr. Harrington added, "could, If they chose, linanco tho new league." There was a fair attendance at the public meeting which followed tho private con ference and the proceedings were marked by much enthusiasm. M ?. Redmond ex plained that the new government appealed to Irishmen at home and in America for support. He outlined the policy of obstruc tion to bo pursued In the House of Common,- in order to secure redress of financial grievances. His mention of the name of Timothy Harrington produced a hostile demonstration. : Mr. Stuyvesant Chandler, who had a very hearty reception, declared that the new platform contained the ccrnerstone of the American Constitution and that the birth of the new league would revive the inter ests of all Americans in the welfare of Ire land. Amid loud cheers he hade England beware of "that vast throng of Irishmen In tho United States, with the same old love of Ireland, who hate England in their hearts." A resolution approving the pro ceedings of tho conference was adopted unanimously. Lu.d y Somcmet'i SuKjJcext Ioiik.

Thw major was on the way to the courthouse when tho deputy sheriff met him. Judge Ong lectured the major severely. Stock man upheld with dignity that ha was busy with work fcr the United States govern ment and added that he had written or ders from the department at Washington to attend on courts only w hen he had com pleted those official duties. Judge Ong re plied warmly that ho did not understand that government orficiala were above the courts or that tho courts had to'wait until the government officials hud leisure. He therefore fined Stockman $," and costs and ordered him committed until paid. Stock man was exceedingly indignant and an nounced that he would report tho case to the department at Washington.

There are four English war correspond ents in Salonica, besides Fr'rrch and Ger man. All four with the possible exception of myself are models of what war corre spondents and Englishmen should be. The dashing war correspondent, boots and a patrol jacket, field glass and revolver, note book and camera, galloping down the fir ing line, with an aureole ot bursting shells round his head! It is magnificent, but it is not Turkey. Here you may, indeed, have as many patrol Jackets and pairs of boots as you please, but you cannot ee through Mount Olympus with your glass, and they take away your revolver at the frontier. As for the firing line and the bursting shells well, to begin with, no line is firing and no shells bursting just now. And, to con tinue, they will not let you go to the fron tier to look at the nonfiring line and the nonbursting shells. You may stay in Sa lonica, and welcome; but in Salonica you must stay. For example, it struck me the other day that 1 should like to go to Karaveria. Karaverla is a station on the line from hero to Monastir; you go there on the way to Eiassona, and then do tho rest by road. Having risen very early in the morning, I Joined a, hated rival the correspondent of another London paper at the railway sta tion. Jauntily we stepped into the booking office. "Two first return " A tall officer stepped politely in front of us. "Impossi ble," he said. "But we only want to go to Karaverla, and come back this evening. Heboid a basket of lunch as a guarantee of good faith." "impossible without a spe cial passport." "But it's only to Karaveria not even outside the sandjak of Salonica." A sandjak Is a kind of district council without the council. "No," said the ever polite captain. "1 am sorry, but I am not allowed to use my discretion. Nobody may take a tic ket nobody at all without a spe cial permission." Damn! Never mind, though, we will go to-mor-row. We will send the cavass a cavass is a kind of mixture of servant and orderly, attached to embassies, consulates and the like to the mudir, or police; he will get us a paper stating that we are not spies. In the meantime, a stroll and some coffee and cigarettes. Then some cigarettes and coi fee and a little stroll. Then lunch. On the hour of lunch comes back the cavass. The police regrets that it has no power to give such papers; application must be made to the Governor General, through the consul general, for a teskere. A teskere is the document you normally require in order to be allowed to make a journey from one sandjak to another. You must get that. Damn! Never mind, though. Tho consul general is inexhaustible in his kindness; let us ask him to send for a teskere. It is only a matter of a few hours; we will go the day after to-morrow. In the meantime, a little shall we say coffee and cigarettes? Then a little run in the bay on the two piastre steamer, with French colors float ing over the rail. A couple of hours thus h'.led in, and then to the consulate. The teskere? Refused? Why, certainly. Kara veria is the principal point of disentrain- mont for the troops gomg up to the front. For the present the Governor General ts not empowered to allow newspaper corre spondents to visit it. You can go to Mon astir, if you like, or Uskub, or, indeed, al most anywhere where there is nothing go ing on. But Karaverla for the present, no. Perhaps If an application were made to the minister of foreign affairs, through the British embassador at Constantinople, and strongly supported In the proper quar tersbut no. For the present, no! And what can the correspondent do then, poor thing? Let it be understood that I do not blame the officer at the station, nor the police, nor his excellency, the vail, nor his majestv, the Sultan. Turkish, they are all perfectly right, and if 1 were In their posi tion 1 should do exactly the same as they do. Karaveria. after all, is the principal point of disentrainment. and we were not going there to enjoy the landscape. The government here does not want people to know what is going on In regard to the mobilization. It is its own mobilization, and it has a perfect right to keep it to itself. Whether this is altogether wise from its own point of view is another mat ter. They is-me daily statements from Con stantinople of the number of troops that have gone up to the front. But if they let nobody go to see them, they 'run the risk of giving the impression that there are rather more troops in the statement than there are at the front. There may alio be made adverse inferences as to the prob able condition of these troops. As a matter of fact, there is every reason to believe that the statements from Con stantinople are true ind the troops very decently cared for. There have passed through here eighty-eight battalions of redlfs from Asia Minor, which, with troops of the line and redifs from these provinces, make perhaps 110 battalions say, 'o.0.t to .Vt'0 Infantry betw ten lure and the fron tier. Add cavalry and artillery, and you get an army of close on ninety thousand men, with not much short of two hundred Is the season for purifying, cleansing, and renewicg. The accumulations of traste everywhere are being removed. Winter's icy grasp is broken and on all sides are indications of nature's returning life, renewed force, and awakening power. Is the time for purifying the blood, cleansing the system and renewing tho physical powers. Owing to close con finement, diminished perspiration and othr causes, in the winter, impurities have not passed out of the system as they should but have accumulated in the blood. Is therefore the best time to take Hood's Sarsaparilla, because the system is now most in need of medicine. That Hood's Sarsaparilla is the begt blood purifier and Spring medicine 13 proved by its wonder ful cures. A course of Hood's Sarsaparilla now may prevent great suffering later on. a Sarsaparilla Is the One True Blood Purifier. All druggists. $1. Prepared only by C. I.

The army will not be complete, they tell us, until there are 150 battalions, which brings up the total force to something like ZSJKh) men. No . fewer than twelve thousand horses have passed through here up to yes terday. Of course, the difficulty will by to feed everybody. But lamb is in season just now; contractors here are sending up bis cuit and flour by the ton. The weather is bad up at the frontier, and that is the worst hardship; but the Albanians and Turks will at least rough it as well as the Greeks. Thus we talk of battalions and batteries. Turks and Greeks, but what does It all come to? W hat has it all to do with Sa- lonica? With the back country it may have something to do; they have requisitioned all the horses and carts of the peasants for the transport. As I came down I was won dering whv thev could! aDnarently grow nothing in Macedonia but two-year-olds, yearlings and mares In foal. The rest are all gone with the wagons. The local wag ons are not much to look at; the most Brit ish farmers' are lord mayors' coaches be side them. Wheels jolt and sway and swing away from the axle and back again; but. after all. they are the only thing that could stand the roads in this part. I took a ride along the Sultan's highway this morning, and the pony scampered over slabs of rock, beds of streams, heaps of rubble, up and down forty-five-degree gradients, and round right-angled corners with one breathless, busihess-Uke rush that mado me pray for strength to fall off. Certainly roads are not the strong point of this country, and the Sultan may con gratulate himself on the wisdom which dic tated the construction of the new more or less direct railway from Constantinople. Such as they are, the carts must creals over them, and the husbandman is left dis consolate. For that matter, the husband man Is not left, if he be a Mussulman; he is taken also. You have to see a sight like the transport of theso enormous masses of reserves to the front before you quite real ize what general conscription means. The redifs may be splendid fellows, but how many neglected fields and untended sheep do they represent? They may be well trained, but that i3 because they have left fields and sheep untended now for three successive years. Two years ago they were colled out to fight the rebels in this prov ince; last year they were sent over sea to fight the Druses; this year they must turn out again. People talk of the sufferings of the Armenians and the grievances of tho Greeks, but what about the Turk? The Greek and Armenian take government con tracts and grow rich; the Turk takes his rille and his knapsack and grows poor. Uut what has all that to do with Salon ica? Business is dull in a way. Commer cial travelers can get no orders for manu factured goods, but there are plenty of or ders for the army. So Salonica suns itself happily by the sea and enjoys Its three Sundays. For Salonica has come very nearly half way to the far-off ideal of u week of Sundays. There is Friday for the Mussulman, Saturday for the Jew, Sunday for the Christian. Each religiously rests on his own day and abstains from his busi ness. Three off days a week is much, but not more than Salonica cm do with. It is quite happy. The menace of war is very near in space, but thousands of leagues away in interest. Salonica neither knows of it nor greatly cares. We are, indeed, on the outside edge of war.

The second annual meeting of the International Kindergarten Association opened this afternoon in the auditorium of the High School.

Putnam followed with a short address on "Freedom and Iaw in the Home." Miss Alice E. Fitts read a paper on "Freedom and Law in the Kindergar ten." "LOM3 FISHERMAN" DEAD. Complete Illntory of the Itole Made Famous ly Janiew S. Mulllt. J. L. Ford, in New York Journal. James S. Mafllt died yesterday at his farm, in Maryland, not far from Baltimore, at tho advanced age of seventy-two. Mr. Matfit was one of the last of the old-fashioned race of pantomimists and had ap peared in nearly every great pantomimic production on the American stage during the past quarter of a century. At one time, as a member of the firm of Mailit & Bartholomew, he produced and managed entertainments, and ho had created during his long professional career a great many of the most famous of the modern panto mimic roles, besides appearing in nearly all the time-honored ones cf the past, lrv- cludlng clown, pantaloon and harlequin, in every one of which lie was deservedly popu lar. In the minds of the present generation of playgoers, however, Mr. Mafilt is identi fied with but one role that of the Lone Fisherman in "Evangeline." which he en acted during a number of seasons in near ly every great city of the Union. There have been innumerable discussions as to the creator of this part, and the writer is glad to announce on the authority of Col. T. Allston Brown, the Inspired oracle of tho American drama, past, present and future, that the part was first played In this country by a California actor named Jacob W. Thoman. who was last seen in it at Niblo's in 1V74, at which time he re tired from the stage to pass the remainder of his days In the Forrest Home, where he died in lbSG. Full confirmation of Colonel Brown's statement which no one between Four teenth and Forty-second streets would dare to question under any circumstances may b found in a letter wrlten by Mr. Mafilt a short time ago to the Dramatic Mirror, In which he gives a complete history of the part which was made famous chlefiy through his own efforts. Mr. Mailit says that in 1S73 Cheever Good win, then a student In Harvard College, came to him. in company with Ed ltice, and asked him to suggest a good panto mimic part for a burlesque on which the two were at work. Mr. Maffit was then playing the part of Nlcodemus, In a ballet pantomime, and replied that he thought a solitary fisherman would be a good panto mimic character. Both author and com poser liked the suggestion and when "Evan geline" was produced, in 1S.73-H. Jacob Thoman appeared in it as the Ine Fisher man, playing the part without any action and In the last act explaining in a few lines who he was. A year or two later "Evanrellnc" was performed again, with Harry Beckett as Le Blant.

In 1677 Harry Hunter was engaged for the role, which was also played in subse quent years by both Willie Kdouin and Harry' Dixie. Mr. Maffit had intended to play ula farewell engagement in the part when the piece was revived at the Garden Theater last season, but was prevented by illness. Mr. Maffit began his professional career In 1N50. and retired five or six yt-ars agro to his farm In Maryland, where he enjoyed the fruits of his labor, and was held in hleh esteem by the Community until his death yesterday. His Luck. Detroit Free Press. "You fellows don't know what hard luck is." declared the old-time theatrical man ager. "Before my luck turned I'll bet a season's profits that I traveled ten thou sand miles on foot and for more than half that distance I was taking leg bail from officers that thought they could get money from my empty pockets. "One fall I had a lot of one-night raids out In Kansas. I had attractive paper and an advance agent that could give Ananias a couple of string-s when it came to lsinp; but it kept us rustling to pay running ex penses. At Inst the whole company stuck in a littlo place where we had to put up most of our baggage with the hotel keeper. I didn't blame them much, but suggested to them the difficulty of sustaining on prairie grass and showed them a telegram from the next town announcing that every seat In the house had been sold. It was a clear case of providential Intervention. I danced a Jig in my room and every member of the company went about humming soma favorlto air. Tho sun was shining once more. "As we made the short jump the next day a cyclone passed to the" left of us, frelphted with everything movable that could be picked up in Its course. But It missed us. and we felt more than ever that luck was with us. When we reached our town I stopped to have a few words with the agent. " 'See anything of a buildln with a flac on it blowln' th' other way as you com In?' he Inquired. " 'Yes,' I answered carelessly, 'we all re marked it. " Th' 'clone only made one dip here. That was th' opera house you seen.' "I Just rolled up my trousers and struck out across the country." t t L,o t a ot T li e m. Detroit Tribune.
