REPORTED J. P. MORGAN HAS AS-
SENTED TO PLAN TO END
THE COAL STRIKE.
GOVERNOB STONE'S IDEA
Another Version of the Pennsylvania
Executive's Conference With P. A.
B. Widener, One of Mr. Morgan's
Associates, Says He Was Unable to
Accomplish a SettlementMitchell
Has No Information.
Philadelphia, Sept. 10.The North
American says that J. Pierpont Mor
gan has assented to a plan- pioposed
by Governor Stone of Pennsylvania
for ending the coal miners' strike.
,The plan, according to the North
American, was submitted to Mr. Mor
gan by P. A. B. Widener of this city.
The plan, in brief, is for the mine
workers to return to work without a
signed agreement that the operators,
by concessions, adjust the differences
existing between the men and the
companies that after waiting a rea
sonable time the operators fail to do
this, an arbitrator be appointed, and
that if the men deem the decision of
the arbitrator as unjust, then the men
can again go on strike.
The paper also says that Governor
Stone immediately telegraphed Presi
dent Mitchell for a conference and
that the meeting between the gover
nor and the miners' chief will take
place probably during tne day.
Wilkesbarre, Pa., Sept. 10.Presi-
dent Mitchell said he had received no
information from Governor Stone with
reference to a conference as tar as
he knew the strike situation was un
changed.
HIS MISSION A FAILURE.
Governor Stone Unable to End the
Great Anthracite Strike.
New York, Sept. 10.Governor Will
iam A. Stone of Pennsylvania, who
came to this city and made an effort
during the day to see what could be
done towards settling the anthracite
coal strike, has returned to Harris
burg, Pa., without having apparently
been able to accomplish a settlement.
There were rumors afloat that the
governor's visit had results, but
George W. Perkins, of J. P. Morgan
& Co., denied that there was any
change in the situation. Word to the
same effect was received by long dis
tance telephone from President Trues
dell of the Delaware, Lackawanna and
Western railway, who is out of town.
Governor Stone was accompanied to
the city by Attorney General Elkin of
Pennsylvania and Senator Flynn of
Pittsburg. The three held a confer
ence of several hours duration with
P. A. B. Widener of Philadelphia in
the offices of the United States Steel
corporation.
After the conference had lasted an
hour, Mr. Widener went to see J. P.
Morgan at the latter's office and asked
him to use his influence to end the
strike. Ten minutes later he returned
to his fellow conferees and told them
that Mr. Morgan had declined to inter
eie.
Before leaving the city Governor
Stone gave out the following state
ment
"Attorney Geneial Elkin, Senator T.
Flynn and myself have been in con
sultation tor several hours with P. A.
B. Widener of Philadelphia, a director
of the United States Steel corporation,
and associated with Mr. Morgan in
many business interests. Mr. Widen
er i- very anxious to see the strike
settled ard took the matter up with
Mr. Morgan We are doing what we
can."
Governor Stone was asked what
progress towards a settlement had
been made during the conlerence and
whether anj direct communication
had been had trom Mr. Morgan. To
these questions he answered that he
Had Nothing to Say
beyond what was contained his
statement and that the other parties
to the conference had also been
pledged to silence.
George W. Perkins speaking for J.
P. Morgan & Co., said:
"We have no comment to make on
Governor Stone's statement. We, how
ever, have no official statement as to
what occurred at the conference, nor
have we heard from Governor Stone
since the conference was closed. Nor
have we anything to say on the strike
situation."
President George P. Baer of the
Philadelphia and Reading President
W. H. Truesdell of the Delaware,
Lackawanna and Western, and Presi
dent Thomas P. Fowler of the New
York, Ontario and Western railway,
had an informal conference.
After it was over President Fowler
said the situation had been gone over
thoroughly in an informal manner.
Mr. Fowler said there was no change
in the attitude of the operators and
that nothing could end the strike but
the unconditional surrender of the
striking miners.
Later in the day when Governor
Stone's statement was submitted to
President Fowler he sent out word
by his secretary that he had no com
ment to make on the statement and
did not even care to learn of its con
tents. President Baer went back to
Philadelphia.

SEVEN STILL AT LARGE
TWELVE OF THE NINETEEN AL-
LEGED ST. LOUIS BOODLERS
UNDER ARREST.
NEW INDICTMENTS FOUND
In Addition to Charges of Bribery and
Perjury in Connection Wi^h the
Suburban Street Railway Deal Eigh-
teen of the-J^efendartts Now Rest
Under Bribery Indictments in City
Lighting Scandal of 1900.
St. Louis, Sept. 10.When Judge
Douglas adjourned court seven of the
nineteen members of the alleged
boodle combine of the house of dele
gates were still at large and the police
and deputy sheriffs are using their
best efforts to find them. Develop
ments in the tamous case began early
and throughout the day came with
startling rapidity.
The most important feature of the
day's developments was the finding of
new indictments against eighteen
members of the combine. In addition
to the charges of bribery and perjury,
in connection with the Suburban
Street railway deal the members of
the alleged combine now rest under
additional indictments charging brib
ery. These were found by the grand
jury before which J. K. Murrell testi
fied during the day as to the city
lighting scandal of 1900, in which each
member of the combine is said to
have received $2,500 in payment for
his services in securing the passage
of the bill.
According to his own confession
Murrell was the go-between of the
boodling members of the house, of
which he had been speaker, and the
representatives of the corporations
seeking franchises. Although Mur
rell has made a full and free confes
sion of his connection with boodling
schemes in the house of delegates
since his connection with it, implicat
ing many of his colleagues, there are
other deals in which they and he w%re
concerned in which prosecution is
barred by the statute of limitation.
Murrell's testimony during the day,
therefore, while confined mainly to the
methods by which the city lighting
bill passed the municipal assembly,
also dealt with other measures that
had come before the body during the
existence of the combine. As a re
sult, some sensational indictments are
looked for before the end of the week
against persons other than members
of the combine. The "legislative
agents" of corporations seeking these
franchises, among whom may be men
tioned a well known broker and an
equally well known politician, whose
names have been mentioned frequent
ly in connection with the proceedings
of previous grand juries, are said }x
be implicated in Murrell's confession.

quests the visitors made to the colon

was for permission for the Boer refu
gees in Europe to return to their re

Chamberlain, however, did not see
any way in which he could agree to
either this or the suggestion that cer
tain holders of office under the late

reppointed to their old positions.

FILL OF AGUA DULCE
BESIEGED COLOMBIAN TOWN
SURRENDERS TO THE IN-
SURGENT FORCES.
INVESTED SINCE JULY 28
Government Troops Under General
Morales Berti Capitulate to the
Rebels Commanded by Benjamin
Herrera After a Heroic but Hope-
less Defense Great Uneasiness
Felt at Panama.
Panama, Sept. 10.The surrender
to tne Colombian insurgents of the
government general, Morales Berti,
and the troops of his command at
Agua Dulce, which has previously
been reported and which was gener
ally believed to have taken place, has
LOW been confirmed. This news
reached Panama through some former
Conservative prisoners of the insur
gents who were liberated at San Car
los as a result of the landing there of
an expedition from the government
fleet of gunboats.
General Berti, who had been be
sieged at Agua Dulce by the insur
gents since July 28, only surrendered
when his cause was hopeless. In the
act of surrender the insurgent gGneral,
Benjamin Herrera, declares he recog
nizes the abnegation of General Berti
and his men, whom he succeeded in
dominating because ot the superior
ity of his forces and the quantity of
munitions of war of all kinds at his
disposal. He promises to hold in
violate the lives and honor of his
prisoners and he allows General Berti
to retain his sword as a mark of honor
in recognition of his heroic detense of
Agua Dulce. The surrendered gen
erals and officers have been paroled
at Penonome and Santiago de Vera
guas. The act of surrender also sets
forth that in consideration of General
Herrera's respect for the bravery ot
the men who withstood his siege, they
will not be compelled personally to
surrender their arms. They may be
exchanged for some of the thousands
of Liberal prisoners now in possession
of the government.
General Morales Berti was one of
the most popular of the government
leaders and he has the sympathy of
everybody in his present reverse, i
is recognized by all that he could not
have done otherwise than he did.
There is great uneasiness here now
that the details of the Agua Dulce
affair have become known. The
strong entrenchments which have
been erected in and around Panama
are defended by 2,500 men and there
are over 1,000 government soldiers at
Colon. A dispatch has been received
from the minister of war at Bogota
saying that a large number ot rein
forcements had lett Honda on the
Magdelena river, for the isthmus, and
3,000 more men are expected to come
in this week.
