CONFERENCE WITH MITCHELL
MEMOERS OF THE ILLINOIS DIS
TRICT AT WILKESDARRE.
Western Miner Stronprly Opposed to
Striking; and Mnr Even Object
to Purtlul Suspension.
WILKESDARRE. Ta.. June 1?. The ar
rival of President W. R. Russell and Secretary-treasurer
W. D. Ryan, of the Illinois
miners' organization, for a conference with
National President Mitchell was the only
event of any Importance around strike
headquarters to-day. The two Illinois
leaders arrived at 3 o'clock and Immedi
ately went into conference with their
chief, which lasted two hours. President
Mitchell, after the meeting, said the Il
linois men came to see him for the pur
pose of "discussing Western mining mat
ters." When he was asked what particular
matters were talked over and whether bus
iness connected with the coming special
national convention was considered he re
plied that he would prefer not to say any
thing more. Neither Mr. Russell nor Mr.
Ryan had anything to say beyond the
statement that they felt well satisfied with
the situation both East and West. They
left for their homes late to-night.
There is not the slightest doubt that the
Illinois officials brought Information to Mr.
Mitchell which will be of use to him in
connection with the Indianapolis meeting.
Information has reached here through dif
ferent sources that the solft coal miners
In the West are not unanimous for a gen
eral strike, and some of them, it is said,
are against a partial suspension. Those
men who oppose a strike are willing to
give financial aid to the anthracite strikers,
but some of the leaders are not ready to
accept this sort of aid. In the spring of
1300, when a strike levy of 25 cents a month
for each member of the United Mine Work
ers of America was made, there were only
three state organizations that responded
in full; they were Iowa, Illinois and In
diana. There is now a strike tax of 10
cents a month for each member in force,
but as far as can be learned this is not
being paid in full by all the districts In
the country. For this reason the leaders
would rather have the bituminous miners
either strike or partially suspend opera
tions. President Mitchell has been in close
communication with the leaders of the va
rious districts and whatever plan they de
cide upon will, no doubt, be accepted by
the convention. No radical action, such as
a total suspension of work by the entire
membership of the organization, is looked
A little dissatisfaction was expressed by
some of the strikers because the convention
was set a month hence. They feel that
something ought to be done without wait
ing thirty days. While the leaders around
the strike headquarters will not talk, it is
believed the fixing of the date for July 17
was a wise move. A partial curtailment
of coal production, or even a total suspen
sion of the coal production, would have a
serious effect on the business interests of
the country, and it is hoped that during
the month some plan may be devised by
which such a state of affairs can be avoid
ed. A total suspension of coal mining is
practically Impossible, because the United
Mine Workers' organization does not in
clude all the miners in the country.
President Mitchell received information
to-day from West Virginia which, he says,
indicates that the strike there is progres
sing most favorably. He said more men are
now out in that territory than at any other
time since the strike in the Virginias be
gan. Large gains have been made, he said,
along the line of the Norfolk & Western
There were no developments in the an
thracite strike to-day. The canvass to
bring out all the engineers, firemen and
pump runners who have failed to respond
to the strike order goes steadily on. Ad
ditional men are persuaded each day to
quit, but the coal companies say they al
ways have men on hand to fill their places.
Fired on by Strikers.
ROANOKE, Va., June 13.-The bodies of
Henry Hartson and Peat Hartson, two
miners, reached here to-day from William
son, W. Va., where they were killed by an
explosion of dynamite in a mine yester
day. A miner who accompanied the re
mains is reported as having said that about
twenty-five miners were at work in a mine
near Williamson yesterday evening when
a crowd of strikers armed with Titles de
manded that they should come out. Upon
the miners' refusal to obey, the strikers
threw a quantity of dy namite into one
shaft, which exploded, killing five of the
men. As soon as the survivors came out
of the shaft the strikers fired on them,
injuring several, though none was thought
to be fatally shot.
Attitnde of the Illinois Miner.
CHICAGO, June 13. The call issued by
President John Mitchell for a convention
of the United Mine Workers of America in
Indianapolis July 17 has aroused the ap
prehension of operators as to the future in
the bituminous coal fields. Officers of the
Illinois districts have advised the operators
that they will oppose a strike, but what
the delegates who are sent to the conven
tion will do remains to be seen. Illinois
miners generally, it is believed, favor living
up to the contract entered into with the
operators last March. Railroads obtaining
coal from the southern part of the State
have placed heavy orders and a large force
of miners is engaged in filling them at the
Fmor Maintaining: Agreement.
FITTSBURG, June 13. The sentiment
among the officials as well as the rank and
file of the United Mine Workers In the
Pittsburg district is apparently opposed to
a general strike. Secretary Dodd said to
night that contracts between operators and
men for the yr have been signed and
should not be broken. District President
Patrick Dolan said: "Some time ago I re
ceived a telegram from President John
Mitchell concerning the call for the con
vention, asking whether I was in favor of
it or not. I have told no one what my an
swer was. nor do I intend to. I might be
wrong and then I might be right. 1 must
decline to discuss the proposition any fur
ther through the newspapers."
Feeling: in Mnrylnnd.
CUMBERLAND, Md.. June 13.-Agitators
are at work among the miners of the
Georges creek region looking to the selec
tion of delegates to the Indianapolis
miners' convention favorable to a general
strike. The region Is thoroughly organized.
The younger element, it is said, is favor
able to a general shut down. The older
men seem to desire conservative action.
Wages in the region are satisfactory, they
urge, and the miners have not recovered
entirely from their last strike. Those fa
voring a strike argue that the present
would be a ?ood time to compel the opera
tors to recognize the union. There are
about 4.01") miners in the region.

Colorado Official I CniiRht in n Dear
Trap Set by HiniMclf.
DENVER, June 13. Caught in a bear
trap, alone in the dark, Thomas Holland,
state superintendent of fish hatcheries, had
an awful time at the Statehouse last night,
which will disable him for several days and
which came near crippling him for life.
One of the exhibits in the game commis
sioners' office is the heavy steel trap which
was seized when Ernest Thompson-Seton
and Guide John Goff were accused of using
venison for bait. The trap is firmly pad
locked to the steam pipes. In the early
evening Mr. Holland had some visitors, and
he showed them how the trap was set. Mr.
Holland is something of a joker, and it oc
curred to him that it would be amusing to
leave the trap set so as to scare the State
house janitors. His friends left, and Mr.
Holland remained to make up some arrears
of correspondence. Just before midnight he
turned out the light. Mr. Holland forgot the
trap, until its Jaws snapped about his leg
just above the ankle, two of the inch-long
spikes penetrating to their full length. The
bone was almost broken by the Iron grip. It
was after daylight before he managed to
attract the attention of the night watch
man, and then it was half an hour before
they got the grip released.

Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
WINONA LAKE, Ind., June 19. Wino
nlar.s, both in the park and at Warsaw,
were stirred up to-day over reports sent
to the Indianapolis papers criticising Dr.
S. C. Dickey, manager of Winona Assem
bly, for tying to establish a technical de
partment in Indianapolis. This afternoon
a representative meeting was held in the
offices of J. H. Brubaker. of Warsaw.
There were in attendance leading business
men, including Mayor Richardson and
many who had subscribed towards the
$12.0u0 fund. The following resolution was
unanimously adopted and is Intended to
refute all the statements that have been
"Resolved, That having heard the
statement of Dr. Sol C. Dickey as to the
plans and intentions of the establishment
and maintenance of the proposed 'Winona
Agricultural and Technical Institute at
Winona Park, we hereby express our satis

FORT DE FRANCE. Island of Martin
ique, June 1?. A column of slime one hun
dred metres high was ejected from the vol
cano of Mont Pelee yesterday, and fell on
Basse Pointe, enveloping the lower portion
of the town and completely razing twenty
two houses. No loss of life has been re
ported. The volcano continues to throw forth cin
ders in the northern part of the Island,
which has been rendered uninhabitable.
Previous to the falling of the mass of slime,
or mud, on Basse Pointe, that place and
Lorraine had been inundated by torrential
rains. The part of Basse Pointe which
suffered yesterday is now covered to the
thickness of about five metres with slimy
mud. Le Precheur also suffered from this
latest eruption of Mont Pelee.
With the permission of M. L'Huerre, Gov
ernor of Martinique, the ruins of St. Pierre
were visited on Tuesday by the adminis
trator of the Island of Dominica, II. II.
Bell, and a party of friends, who' proceed
ed to St. Pierre on the steamer Yare. Mont
Pelee was in eruption and ashes fell upon
the Yare when she was passing Le Prech
eur. There were intermittent detonations,
and the summit of the volcano was com
pletely obscured by clouds of steam and
ashes. Great dense volumes of steam, ap
parently from small craters, rose by the sea
shore near the ruins of the Guerln sugar
factory, and from several places up the
cleft, from which the stream of mud had
poured May 5.
The ruins of St. Pierre presented a ghast
ly sight. Torrential rains had removed much
of the sand and ashes with which they had
been covered, and many corpses were part
ly exposed. The odors were strong and
nauseating. The valley of the river Roxel
lane had been blocked and a portion of
the river has been turned Into the ruins of
St. Pierre, the northwest portion of which
is partially flooded. While Mr. Bell and
his party were proceeding with their in
spection of the ruins an avalanche of black
scoriae and sand fell to the east of the
town, accompanied by loud detonations,
which alarmed the visitors. The north end
of the Island of Martinique is gray with
ashes, and the whole population of that
section appear to have left the scene of
death and desolation.
The river which flows by Basse Pointe
has risen suddenly four times since yester
day, and as a result thirty houses at Basse
Pointe have been carried out to sea. The
first flood was signalized by the appearance
in the valley of the river of a torrent of
muddy water forty meters wide and five
meters high, which advanced with frightful
rapidity. The first houses that were struck
by the rush- of water were shattered and
thrown high into the aL and their ruins
were carried out to sea on the crest of the
During all of yesterday afternoon thick
clouds of smoke issued from the crater at
the head of the River Fallalse, and the
river itself has been rushing downward
with such violence that its banks have been
carried away and the old river bed has dis
appeared. The river has now taken a new
course. -A bridge over the Fallalse has
been carried away. One of the chasms
from the volcanic eruption, which rendered
access to the head of the river impossible,
is now filled up with volcanic matter, which
has solidified, and at this moment it is pos
sible to cross the chasm on the newiy-thrown-out
Torrential rains are falling In the north
ern part of the island. Mont Pelee con
tinues to vomit a thick column of cinders,
which the wind blows to the north.
The village of Le Precheur has been in
vaded by a stream of mud. A great por
tion of this village, however, has been car
ried away by floods which occurred pre
viously. Last Wednesday several French news
paper reporters who were exploring Le
Precheur were surprised while there by
an eruption of Mont Pelee. They fled pre
cipitately, and with great difficulty gained
their boat amid a rain of cinders and sur
rounded by flashes of lightning. The at
mosphere was charged with electricity to
a remarkable degree.
Thick clouds of vapor are rising from
the crevices along the entire northern
coast. It is said that the water of several

Llent. McCormnok'n Report.
WASHINGTON, June 13.-Secretary
Moody to-day made public the report of
Lieut. B. B. McCormick, commanding the
Potomac, which was the first American
warship to arrive at Martinique, recount
ing the events attending that cruise. It Is
a very matter-of-fact statement of hap
penings. The news reports have spoken of
the indomitable energy and bravery of
the Potomac commander and the good
work the vessel did. The report tells in a
routine way of the gallant recovery of
the remains of United States Consul Prent
iss and of the Potomac's second tour of the
Island of Martinique after the second
eruption. The report concludes with a
statement that on the way back to San
Juan on May 23, while two or three miles

of crime prevails throughout the county,
caused by the invasion of tramps. As a re

Something for Mothers to Think About
EVERY CHILD born into the world with an inherited
or early developed tendency to distressing, disfiguring
humours of the skin, scalp, and blood, becomes an object
of the most tender solicitude, not only because of its suf
fering but because of the dreadful fear that the disfigura
tion is to be lifelong and mar its future happiness and
prosperity. Hence it becomes the duty of mothers of
such afflicted children to acquaint themselves with the
best, the purest, and most effective treatment available,
viz., THE CUTICURA TREATMENT.
Warm baths with Ccticura Soap, to cleanse the skin of cnit9 and Fcales
and soften the thickened cuticle, gentle anointings with Ccticura Oint
ment, to instantly allay itching, irritation, and inflammation, and soothe and
heal, to be followed in the severer ca?es by mild docs of Cuticl'ka Resol
vent Pills (eee below), to cool and cleanse the blood, are all that caa be
desired for the alleviation of the suffering of skin-tortured infants and
children and the comfort of worn-out, worried mothers. A single set cost
ing 31.00 is often sufficient to cure when the best physicians fail.
