Austria Stiapieloun of the Ilenlgns of Huaala. "Which la Masnlns Troop on the Border. LONDON. Aug. 30. The Roumanian pre mier, M. Sturdza, recently visited Vienna, where he had a long conference with Count Goluchows:tl, the Austro-Hungarion min ister of foreign affairs, on the situation In the Ealkans. He alo conferred with Gen. Von Heck, chief of the Austro-Hungarian general staff. Immediately after this visit articles appeared in the semi-official Hun garian .papers articles believed in some quarters to le inspired by Count Golu chowskl warmly protesting against Rus sia's intrigues in the Balkans. These pro tests were based on rumors that Russia was massing troops on the Roumanian frontier and pending torpedo boats into the Killa, an arm of the Danube, and they plainly warned Russia that, unless she faithfully adheres to the Austro-Russlan agreement of 1S97, to preserve the status quo in the Balkans, Austria "will resume her liberty of action." The idea underlying this warning appears to be that Russia, having attained her objects in Eastern Asia, is now ready to pursue similar alms in the Balkans. One Berlin paper has gone eo far as to describe the agreement of 18i7 as "an instrument to keep Austria quiet while Russia is engaged in Manchuria," Slaughter of Armenian. LONDON, Aug. 30.

ANTHRACITE MINERS ACT RESOLVE TO COXTIME THE l.MOX CAIID INSPECTION' SYSTEM. Alao Empower Offleer to Declare n Strike If Contrneta Are Vio lated by Employers. HAZLETOX. Pa.. Aug. 29. With the adoption of the report of the committee on resolutions the United Mine Workers this afternoon practically finished their work. The convention will adjourn at noon to morrow. The tesolutions recommend writ ten Instead of verbal agreements with all the coal companies, strict compliance with the present contract, continuation of the car inspection system as now conducted, and instructs President Mitchell and the district presidents to confer with the coal companies regarding card Inspection and violation of agreements and to arrange for a joint conference. These officers are vested with power to declare a strike if contracts now in force are not lived up to. The resolutions call attention to the ad vantage resulting to both miners and oper ators by a written contract covering the wage rate for a stated period and speci fying the conditions of labor. The com mittee allege that Instead of agreeing to the request for a written agreement the various companies posted notices of an indefinite character. In many instances the resolutions state that written notices posted and verbal Agreements made by superintendents with committers have been violated under various pretexts. Em ployes who derived the benefit of the 10 per cent, increase have. It Is claimed, ben discharged and new men placed In their positions at the old wages. The committee states In the resolutions that If the miners are reaulred to live u;i to their agree ment then the coal companies should do likewise, instead of seeking to destroy the Mine Workers' organization by intimidat ing the men. Hereafter the miners will Insist upon written agreements, which hall be signed in Joint convention before the present contract expires, and they will lso Insist upon the present working card being continued until the question of a gen eral working badge for the bituminous and anthracite regions is decided upon at the next national convention. The following recommendations are made: "That the unions continue to collect the working card of the union and use all hon orable means to induce those who are not yet members to become such; that a com mittee of the national and district presi dents be instructed to proceed to the high est authorities of the coal companies and to endeavor to overcome their objections to the Inspection of working cards, to call their 'attention to the many violation of contracts by their agents In the coal fields and insist on the contracts being lived up to. and to make such preparations for a Joint convention of operators and miners, to be held before the first of April next, as they possibly can. This committee shall have discretionary powers in the enforce ment of the contracts now existing even to the extent of ordering u suspension of work for the purpose of enforcing It." The question of the miners connecting themselves with Central Ibor I'nlons was referred to the respective districts. National President Mitchell and the three district president were constituted a special committee to whom has been referred the grievance of the Delaware & Hudson men in the Scranton district, with respect to the laying of roads In their workings.
