Last Washington St LEWIS IS IX THE GAME Miners can strike in mre ways than on That was clearly evident at the City Club bowling alleys last night, when five husk and heavy miners from the anthracite con fines of District 1, of Pennsylvania, lintal up agamst a more agile five from the soft coal regions of Ohio. Th" match was on of the most warmly contested that has been seen at the City Club for many a day, and the miners displayed their ability in making strikes as well as conducting them. For four solid hours the miners battled over the alleys, and not until the last ball of the game went spinning down the stretch for a strike was victory cairled away by the quintet of miners from the Buckeye State. The game begun at I o'clock and 12 o'clock had struck before the five games, which constituted the match, were ended. Vice President Thomas L. Iewis was one of tht Ohio team and demonstrated that he is a dictator of bowling disks as well as miners. On the first game the Pennsylvania miners started of at a merry clip, giving their op ponents the worst end of a total score of 77o to 640. The Buckeye men warmed up in the next game and went 61 to the good on a total score of 791 to 730. The next game was ex citing enough for any nrdent bowler and was won by Ohio by 3 points. The score was 721 to 718. Diggers of Pennsylvania Mil got into the game again in the fourth game and knocked down a victory by a score of 776 to 769. The last anil deciding game grated on the nerves of the hundred or so rooters from the two districts who watched the game. The score ran about even thioughout, but when, on the last bowl. Delegate Ileab y sent the Penn sylvania score up to 670, there was vigorous applause from the anthracite rooters. It died Into Insignificance, however, when the last Ohio bowler bowled a strike and placed his team at the victory stake with a score of 674. There were some good scons made In the match last night. M. H. Healey, of Pennsylvania, and William Oreen, of Ohio, secured the highest scores Vjs. Although Pennsylvania was defeated, it made the highest score in the five games by seventy six points. The following is the make-up of the b ms: Pennsylvania. District 1 T. D. Nichols. J. T. Dlmsley. John Fallon, William J. Thomas and M. H. Healey. Ohio T. L. Lewis. William Green, Percy Tetlow. T. M. Davis and G. M. Savage. The anthracite miners last night issued a challenge against the bituminous miners of Pennsylvania for a game and the match will probably be pulled off to-night. MIXERS LAUGH AXD TALK AS RESOLUTION OF SOCIALISTS IS READ (CONCLUDED FROM FIRST PAGE ) district should be allowed to sign a wage scale with an operator who had been placed on the unfair list. The resolution was aimed at the operators of Ohio and Penn sylvania who operate union mines in those States but conduct nonunion mines in West Virginia. The resolution was not con curred In, and after a long discussion was tabled. " A resolution from Kentucky was Intro duced specifying that that State be prohib ited from signing a wage scale less than the one agreed upon in the competitive lields. It was turned over to the scale com mittee. A resolution from N. Martin, of Iowa, providing that the miner be allowed to retain no more than 3.50 a day as a wage, turning all surplus into the national fund, was not received favorably, and was killed In short order. The general opinion was that every miner Is entitled to all he can earn. After an amendment requiring the State Legislature to levy the tax on the basis of all coal handled by railroads and sold l.y dealers, a resolution providing that the State Legislature tax all coal carrying roads and operators on. -half cent a ton for the purpose of creating a fund for a national home, was adopted. Likewise a resolution providing that legislation be obtained in several States requiring the operators to provide shooters for mines, was adopted. A resolution that drew an Interesting dis cussion was one urging that legislation be secured to place the Japanese miners under the same exclusion act as the Chinese, Jap miners are entering the mines of Wy oming ami Montana In considerable num bers ami the framers of the resolution believe that some method should be adopt ed whereby the operators cannot displace union miners with Japs. The organization Is firmly against Chinese labor, and its at titude towards the same conditions under the Japanese Is equally unfriendly. The v solution will probably come up for final disposition to-day. Another recess of half a day was given the delegates yesterday, a the different committees were not ready to report. Yesterday afternoon was spent by most of the committees getting their work straightened out. The resolution committee held an all aftrnon session at the Occi dental Hotel and prepared its mass of reso lutions for the final report, to be made to day. The constitution committee also held a meeting yesterday afternoon and pre pared for its report, which will relate only to slight changes in certain clauses of the constitution. The scale committee will not Met until this evening. What action It will take will not ba known until it sub mits its formal r port, wnlch will not be until the last days of the convention. A meeting of the appeal and grievance com mittee is also called for to-day. ADVOCATE EXCLUSION OF JAPANESE COOLIES Miners Think They Come Nearer to American Standard of Labor than Do the Chinese. To-day's sessions of the convention are looked forward to by the miners as the most important of the meeting. Tho dele gates will reconvene this morning at 9 o'cIock, when questions of Import will come before their consideration. The credential committee said last night that its report will be submitted this morning, after the members have spent more than three days In the effort to straighteu out the creden tials. After the credentials committee has submitted its report the final report of the resolutions committee will be presented and around this will attention be drawn The committee worked all yesterday after noon to get the resolution's in shape, ad journing at 6 o'clock with the statement thut about fifty resolutions will be sub mitted at the sessions to-day. These reso lutions embody a great many questions that. If adopted by the coin . DtlOB, will be of utmost importance to the miners. It Is expected that several resolutions MINERS WILL DEFEA T A TTEMPT TO ESTABLISH UNION BANK If ResoluSm Is Offen-J It Will Be Oi vrwhemingy Rejected Not to Ik Considered It is said that the plan of the Cnited Mine Workers looking to the establishing of a bank of their own for the purpose of depositing th ir funds is as improbable as the danger of the organization accepting eetaUem. Although a resolution to that' effect may be introduced to-day. It is stated by those in executive positions that such a thing is hardly worth considering. "If such a resolution is presented." said one of the executive officers last night, "I can tell you that It will never go through." The suggestion that the organization es tablish a bank for the deposit of the money of labor organisations was barely hinted at In the report of Secretary Wilson, llow- J IVt& it Wiks later iwviud that tho organi VIEW OF A PORTION OF THE CITY OF FEOl U The capita of Korea is Just now one of the danger points in th far East. Foreign marines are guarding the legations of their respective countries. The crotis in the above picture shows the location of the Japanese consulate. will be received from the delegation from West Virginia, advocating some action on the part of the organization relative to the operators in the southern part of that State which are especially antagonistic to the organization of the miners. The usual number of resolutions in reference to wage scales will be submitted. Among the reso lutions is one drafted by Patrick Dolan, president of District 5, which provides that Congress be urged to improve the water ways of the Ohio and Allegheny rivers in order that they may be navigable every day in the year. The resolution of G. F. Jones, of Wyo ming, advocating that Japanese roolies be excluded from the mines of Wyoming and other States where they are becoming a prom in nt factor, will come up for final disposition to-day. Mr. Jones says that there are many Japanese in the Western mines and the dangerous thing about them is that they come nearer the American Standard of labor than the Chinese. Another question that will attract the at tention of the convention to-day is that of the most advisable method of collecting L the per capita tax. It is believed that a P V- 1 l i it et . n-jvuuiuMi Hiiicn emoouies secretary n son's and President Mitchell's recommenda tions will be adopted. That is the st.itnp method, which had been tried in several States, and has proved most satisfactory. A resolution will also be presented recom mending the button system, which Is in vogue in the anthracite region, which has met with good results. The question of de ciding upon the method by which the tax will be collected is one of the most impor tance. Under present methods the national organization does not collect nearly all the tax due it. Its purpose on hitting upon a thorounh system is to secure all dues, in stead of losing I'je.atH) a year, as under the present method. WILL TAKE ACTION ON THE COLORADO STRIKE Miners' Convention May Decide to Call Out 6,ooo Miners in the Wyoming Fields. One of the important matters to come before the convention this week will be that relating to the strike in Colorado. While the organization has given Its support to the strike, it is understood that an effort will be made to have the organization call out the miners in Wyoming, where the same low scales are being paid as in the southern fields of Colorado. It Is believed that the strike can be carried on much more effectively if the Wyoming men are called out. There are about 6,o() miners in the Wyoming mines who are members of the organization, and should they be given the instruction they will go out with the Colorado men. Wyoming is a part of District 15, but when the call to strike was given by the executive board K did not Include the Wy oming miners, although they were receiv ing the same wages and working the leg hours as the Colorado and I'tah miners. In the northern fields the men returned to work when the eight-hour day was granted by the operators. The concession was not made in the southern fields, and the strike is being carried on at an expense of over HMM a month. DO NOT FAVOR RAISING THE MEMBERSHIP DUES In the report of Secretary Wilson there was a recommendation providing for an increase in the membership dues of 3 cents per month. Although I meeting of the con stitution committee was held yesterday, this change in tht by-laws was not touched upon and will not be brought before the convention until later. When the question is put before the convention it will not be indorsed is the general view taken by the delegates. It Is believed by many that If a thorough system of collecting the per capita tax can be found it will be unnecessary to raise the membership dues. Miners Anxiously Wait Report of the Tellers The report of the tellers, which will come to-day or to-morrow, is looked forward to with much interest, as It will make known the result of the annual election of officers of the organization. Because of no opposi tion In the election it is known that the present executive officers. President Mitch ell, Vice President Lewis and Secretary treasurer Wilson, will be re-elected, but there are other offices to be tilled by the referendum vote, which was taken several weeks ago. Among the offices are the seven delegates th Mine Workers will send to the next convention of the American Federation of Labor. There were about thirty candi dates for the positions, but those elected will not be known until the report of the tellers. WO LI US LEFT ONLY THE JAWBONE AND THE FEET BLACK OCOK. Minn., Jan. 20. The jaw bone of a man and two human feet, incased In shoes, were found on the Little Fork river about sixty miles north of this place by trappers who have Just arrived. The rest of the body appears to have been de voured by wolves. It is thought it may be the body of J. C. Sullivan, of Minneapolis, who left Black Duck last May afoot on his wnv to Koochiching to look for a claim, and who has nev r b i n heard of since. Fake 4 i f t Mory Denied. PEORIA. 111.. Jan. 20. Secretary Benja min Cartwright, of the Peoria Park Board, this afternoon denounced the story given out that an unknown man would give S00, tWO to provide for a public park in the cen tral portion of the city. Cartwright as-sertr- that he never received such a letter, and that the project exists only in the im agination of the newspaper man who wrote the article. zation might withdraw Its funds from the banks in which its money is now deposited. Such action was furthest from the mean ing of Secretary Wilson s report, which slated along this line that during the past few months the organization had brought to its notice a movement on the part of the Iron Molders' Union to have the different labor organizations of the city withdraw their money from a certain bank which had on Its board of directors a controller of a corporation that had been placed on the unfair list. Secretary Wilson said: "We should go on record against any policy of this kind except where a bank, as such, is antagonistic to organised labor, and even in that case our funds shoutd be withdrawn in such a manner as not to injure the in terests of the other depositors by causing a run oa the bank." t r' lännnnnnnwnnnna B OF KOREA IS MMI1CJS PEDDLARS Distributing Revolvers and Clubs to Secret Police, a Dangerous Element.

Although no official au thority is obtainable for the statement, there is strong reason to believe that ex changes of communications are now going on between France and Russia concerning the position Russia will Anally adopt In re sponse to the latest Japanese note. Long casse and M. Nelldoff, the Kussiaa ambas sador, are being held almost daily. It is ex pected that the exchange of views will bring about the following results: First, Russia, appreciating the decisive nature of the issues presented in Japan's last note, desires to secure the advice of her nearest political friend, and. second, France wishes to exercise her influence to prevent a war in which she might become embroiled. JAPANESE ACCOUNT OF RECENT NEGOTIATIONS LONDON. Jan. 20. To-morrow s issue of the Jiji Shlmpo. the Daily Telegraph's Tokio correspondent says, will contain a story of the negotiations according to which the first Russo-Japanese divergence was hinted at in a meeting of the council held June 23, 11)03. This story relates to the suc ceeding negotiations until Oct. 30, when Japan wired her proposals to St. Peters burg. For forty days thenceforward Russia hurried on war preparations, Japan mean while remaining quiescent and awaiting an answer. Japan's note proposed that either power be entitled to send police or troops for the protection of the railways in either Korea or Manchuria in case of emergency, but they must be withdrawn directly order was restored. The Russian reply, dated Dec. 11, was overbearing and uncompromising- it excluded Manchuria and proposed that all territory north of the thirty-ninth degree of latitude should be neutral. Japan thereupon commenced h.-r preparations, and on Dec. 22 she presented a note to Russia, which, with some minatory clauses, made the following demands: "Iioth powers shall endeavor to maintain the territorial integ rity of Korea and Manchuria; both shall recognize the special concessions of either in Korea or China, provided the open-door pol icy be reepeeted. Japan also refused the neutral proposal, and counter-proposed a neutral zone if 25 kilometers on both sides of the Korean border. Russia, in her note of Jan. 6, in sisted on her neutral zone, but vaguely hinted her inteution to respect Japan's rights in Manchuria. To this note Japan re plied on Jan. 13, reaffirming her demands. The Telegraph correspondent concludes his dispatch with these words: "Therefore, unless Russia yields, a diplomatic rupture is certain. Russia's answer is expected to morrow." GREAT BRITAIN'S PART IN THE NEGOTIATIONS LONDON, Jan. 20. Lord Lansdowne'g re ception at the Foreign Office to-day was at tended by almost all the ambassadors and ministers in Ixindon, including the Amer ican. Russian, Japanese, German and French representatives. At the end of the reception the Associated Press was informed that th situation looked, perhaps, slightly more hopeful, but as the Russian reply ap parently Is not yet drafted, no definite state ment could safely be made. The Foreign Office has reason to believe, however, that Russia is willing to concede practically all Japan's demands, but that she cannot see her way to make a treaty with Japan recog nizing in blaek and white China's sovereign ty over Manchuria. Russia has approached Great Britain to urge Japan to forego this stipulation and to accept in lieu thereof the assurances to the same end already given to the other powers. It is pointed out at the Foreign Oftice that Great Britain, being buch an interested party, is in a difficult po sition and can scarcely recommend such a course to her ally. For the moment the sit uation rests there. Whether Japan will In sist to the bitter end on a treaty recognizing Chinese sovereignty over Manchuria, the Foreign Office does not yet know. It thinks the Japanese themselves will not decide until after the delivery of the Russian reply, which is scarcely expected till next week. BLUNDER RESULTS IN ATTACK ON UNCLE SAM ST. PETERSBURG. Jan. 20. A con fusion of Olongapo. in Sublg bay. near Manila, with Yongampho. on the Yalu river, has led the Russian press into a curious attack on the United States. The statement that Rear Admiral Evans's squadron was to proceed to Olongapo was either garbled in transmission or misunder stood, for it was reported here that the destination of the American ships was Yongampho." This error was made the basis of an attack on the motives of the United States by the Novoe Vremya and Listock. both papers pretending to see In this move the entrance of the United States Into the quarrel. The Novoe Vremya re marks : "At least America will be an open enemy, which is preferable to a secret one." ReMMrtan Fleet iu the Sues ( aniil. PORT SAID. Jan. 20.

DOCTOR TO HIS RESCUE C. F. Jackson, 734 South Alabama street, tried to swallow an oyster last night that refused to go all the way down. It stuck in his throat and he was taken to the City Dispensarv by his friends who feared he would choke to death. Dr. Jeffries, after much difficulty, succeeded iu removing the bivalve from the man's throat and he suf fered no bad effects from his stubborn lunch. Jackson said he went to the theater last night and after th performance went to an oyster house, where he ordered a dozen raw oysters. He ate eleven of them with out a mishap, but No. 12 had a piece of shell sticking to it and unconsciously he swallowed the oyster and the piece of shell. Dr. Jeffries said had the oyster re mained in the throat a few moments longer it would have probably choked Jackson, as his face was turning blue when he entered the Dispensary door. MISSOURI CONVICT BEFORE GRAND JURY Adolph Fein Tells What He Knows About the Naturalization Frauds at St. Louis. ST. LOUIS, Jan. 20.-Adolph Fein, former vice president of the Hebrew Jefferson Club, now a convict in the Missouri peni tentiary under a sentence of five years for complicity in the naturalization frauds, ap peared before the federal grand jury to-day. Before entering the grand jury chamber Fein said: "I'll tell the grand jury who the fellows were behind those frauds, and they are big fellows, too. When I was indicted my friends said they would come to the front for me, and I made up my mind to keep my mouth shut, but they deserted me. I waited till Dec. 27. Then I made up my mind that if they wouldn't come to tho front for me the government would, so I wrote Colonel Dwy r. the United States district attorne y, and told him I would give up everything I know." Fein was in conference with United States District Attorney Dyer, and it is said he related that names of foreigners who in tended coming to the United States were obtnined before they had started, and nat uralization papers, fraudulently secured, were sent to them.

The resolu tions were sent to the President. In the resolutions It is set forth that Gen eral MacArthur said, while in Honolulu, that a wnr between the United States end Germany was inevitable; that the Pan-Germanic doctrine was taking hold of the Ger man population in this country. It also is claimed General MacArthur said that during the Spanish-American war the presence of a German-American in the regiments was a matter of comment.

STATEMENT BY BRYAX A special meeting of the State Board of Medical Examination and Registration was held yesterdijy afternoon at the Claypool Hotel to confer with the authorities of the Indiana University at Bloominpton relative to the recognition of the State University as a medical college as far as the first two years of the four-year medical course arc concerned. The State University was rep resented by Dr. William Lowe Bryan, presi dent of the university, and Dr. Myers, pro fessor of anatomy in the medical depart ment. The proposition made by the St it. University was that the two years of med ical work now given at that institution be recognized by the State board. Thö last two years of tho course, which requires clinical work, could be taken by the student at any medical college of good standing. Indiana University some time ago estab lished a medical school for the purpose of giving the students of the state institution an opportunity to secure a medical educa tion as far as the junior year ia any four year medical college. The State Board of Medical Examination and Registration, however, refused to recognize Indiana Uni versity as a medical college, and announe that any persons taking up medical work there would be refused admission to prac tice in this Stale, even though they grad uated from other recognized schools where the Indiana University credits had beeu accepted. The State University, in order to place its Medical College on a plane with the very best In the country, made the entrance re quirements to that department of educa tion higher than those required by any other medical college in the State. In spite of the excellent standing of the State Uni versity, the board yesterday hesitated to give it any recognition and adjourned without even giving it full consideration. Dr. Bryan said last night: "We have the assurance from many States In the Union that our college will be recognized by them and the move made by the State Univ. rity has the approval of the highest medical authorities in the country, still we are not to be recognized in our own State. By turning down the State University yester day the Board of Examination practically forces students who attend college at Bloomlngton to seek other States to prac tice their profession. It Is absurd to re fuse Indiana University recognition when the requirements for admission are higher than any other medical college in the State, but instead of making me angry, as some people suggested it should, lt has afforded me amusement because of the ridiculous position in which the board has placed itself. Why should the nu ll al de partment be deprived of recognition in In diana when it is gladly recognized by other States? The board did not feel that it would be fair, one of the members stated yesterday, to give Indiana University any consideration as a medical school because It might injure the prospects of the two colleges in Indianapolis. That was a frank statement." On account of the two medical colleges here In Indianapolis it was said yesterday by a member of the board it was considered best to refuse the proposition offered by the Indiana University authorities. It was feared that recognition of the State Univer sity as a medical college would hamper the colleges in Indianapolis in securing students and probably would work their ruin. Richmond Hymeneal.
