THTTRSDAT, OCTOBER 23, 1902.3QS391- WM^^^^^^W^fW^, 3 CONVENTION OF ANTHRACiTE MINERS DECLARES OFF THE GREAT STRIKE. ACCEPTS ARBITRATION PLAN VOTE IS UNANIMOUS AT TH E CLOSE OF A LONG AND WARM DEBATE. WILL MEET NEXT FRIDAY PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT CALLS TOGETHER THE ARBITRATION COMMISSION. Wilkesbarre, Pa., Oct. 22.With a shout that fairly shook the convention building the representatives of the 147,000 mine workers, who have been on strike since last May, officially de clared off at noon the greatest con test ever waged between capital and labor, and placed all the questions in volved in the struggle into the hands of the arbitration commission ap pointed by the president of the United States. When the news was flashed to the towns and villages down in the valleys and on the mountains of the coal regions the strike-affected inhab itants heaved a sigh of relief. Many days have gone by since more wel come news was received. Everywhere there was rejoicing, and in many places the end of the strike was the signal for impromptu town celebrations. The anthracite coal region from its largest cityScrantondown to the lowliest coal patch, has suffered by the conflict, and everyone now looks for better times. While the large army of mine workers and their families, numbering approximately 500,000 per sons, are grateful that work is to oe resumed on Thursday, the strikers have still to learn what their reward will be. President Roosevelt having taken prompt action in calling the ar bitrators together for their first meet ing on Friday, the miners hope they will know by Thanksgiving day what practical gain they have made. The vote to resume coal mining was a unanimous one and was reached only after a warm debate. The principal objection to accepting the arbitration proposition was that no provision was contained in the scheme to take care of those men who would fail to get back their old positions or would be unable to get any work at all. The engineers and pumpmen get better pay than other classes of mine workers and they did not wish to run the risk of losing altogether their old places and be compelled to dig coal for a liv ing This question came up the pre vious day and was argued right up to the time the vote was taken. No one had a definite plan to offer to overcome the objection and the report of the committee on resolutions that the Strike Be Declared Off and that all issues be placed in the hands of the arbitration commission for decision was adopted without the question being settled. A few mo ments before adjournment, however, a partial solution was reached, when a delegate in the farthest corner of the hall moved that the problem be placed in the hands of the executive boards for solution, and his suggestion was adopted. The principal speech of the day was made by National Secretary Treasurer W. B. Wilson, who practi cally spoke for President Mitchell and the national organization. In a strong argument he counselled the men to accept arbitration, the very plan the strikers themselves had offered, re turn to work and trust to the presi dent's tribunal to do them justice. The question of taking care of all men who will fail to get work imme diately will be a serious one for the union. There is no doubt the execu tive boards will take care of the en gineers, firemen and pumpmen, but there will be thousands of other classes of mine workers who will have to be looked after. In some places hundreds will not be able to get work for weeks, and in other' localities where the mines are in very bad condition, there will be no employment for many work men for some months. Now that the strike is over the volume of relief money will decrease and the local unions will be compelled to call upon the na tional organizations for assistance when the money now in hand runs out. With the close of the great conflict will also end in a few days, probably with the passing of this week, the assess ment now being levied on all bitumin ous mine workers affiliated with the union. The officials who care to talk of the situation feel confident that the national body will come to the assist ance and help of all those who stood out during the suspension. Will Repair Mines at Once. Hundreds of men, needed to repair the mines and otherwise place them in condition for operation, win be at work in the morning, the convention having decided that this was impera tive in order to get the men at work quickly and satisfy the country's de mand for cjoal. AH the locals will Jbold meetings at once at which in structions will be given the members regarding their application for work. The proceedings in the convention indicate that there will be some fric tion in some of the local organizations over many little questions which will jcome up in connection witn the men returning to the mines. President Mitchell received many congratulatory telegrams from all over the country after the news spread that the strike was ended. On his re turn to headquarters he was asked for expression of his views on*the action of the convention "and in reply he said: '"I am well pleased with the action of the anthracite mine workers in de ciding to submit the issues which cul minated in the strike to the commis sion selected by the president-of the United States. "The strike itself has demonstrated the power and dignity of labor. Con servative, intelligent trade unionism has received an impetus, the effect of which cannot be measured. I earnestly hope and firmly believe that both labor and capital have learned lessons from the miners' strike which will enable them to adopt peaceful, humane and business methods of adjusting wage* differences in the future."' Mitchell Notifies Roosevelt. After Mr. Mitchell had notified President Roosevelt of the action of the convention and had received a reply to the effect that the commission would meet in Washington on Friday, he sent out the official announcement through the press to the strikers that the strike was off. It was addressed to all miners and mine workers in the anthracite region. After the miners had called the strike off they unanimously adopted resolutions thanking all national, state and municipal governments, all organ izations and individuals throughout the world for assistance rendered the miners during their great struggle. President Mitchell has not made any arrangements regarding his future movements. He does not know whether he will go to Washington on Friday. The miners' leader will act as the attorney for the rr =n at all ses sions of the commission and will have with him several assistants. Head quarters here will be kept open prob ably until after the award of the arbi tration commission is announced. STRIKE REGION JUBILANT. Celebrations Held at Many Places Over Ending of the Struggle. Philadelphia, Oct. 22.Throughout the etnire anthracite coal region the information that the mine workers' convention at Wilkesbarre had de clared the strike at an end was re ceived with rejoicing. In many sec tions enthusiastic demonstrations fol lowed the welcome announcement, while at other points the news was re ceived with quiet satisfaction. Scarcely a dissenting voice was raised amid the general jubilation. The greatest excitement was dis played in the Schuylkill region. At Shenandoah and Mahanoy City, where many of the Philadelphia and Reading Coal and Iron company's mines are lo cated, the residents appeared on the streets en masse cheering for John Mitchell and shouting and singing in a delirium of delight. A regimental band participated in the celebration at Shenandoah, men and boys number ing thousands following the musicians through the principal gtreets of the borough. Similar scenes were enacted in most of the smaller towns, patches and villages. In the Panther Creek valley there was no demonstration, but the relief was pronounced. There is some specu lation as to whether the pumpmen will be re-employed by the Lehigh Coal and Navigation company, nonunion men having kept the pumps in operation during the progress of the strike. The convention's assurance, however, that discharged men will be cared for by the miners' organization mitigated the feeling of uncertainty. In the upper region the union head quarters at all of the mining towns and villages were thronged during the morning by expectant crowds of strik ers, who quickly circulated the news and then proceeded to celebrate the occasion in an exuberant manner. In many sections the men whose duty it is to prepare the mines for the miners and laborers reported at the collieries and the work of lowering the mules has already begun. WILL MEET NEXT FRIDAY. President Roosevelt Calls Together Arbitration Commission. Washington, Oct. 22.Shortly be fore 3 o'clock p. m. President Roose velt received a telegram from Wilkes barre, Pa., informing him that the con vention of miners had declared off the anthracite coal strike. The telegram was signed by John Mitchell, chair man, and W. B. Wilson, secretary of the convention. Immediately upon re ceipt of the information the following telegram was sent to Mr. Mitchell: "Washington, Oct. 21, 1902. "Mr. John Mitchell, Chairman of Con vention, Wilkesbarre, Pa.: "Upon receipt of your telegram of this date the president summoned the commission to meet here on Friday next, the 24th inst., at 10 a. m." News of the termination of the strike was received by the president with great satisfaction. Already telegrams have been sent to the members of the commission, notifying them of the first meeting to be held in this city on Friday morning and summoning them to be present. The meeting probably will be held in the office of Commissioner Wright, in the department of labor. After the commission has effected its organiza tion, the members will call in a body on the president to pay their respects. At that time it is expected he will em brace the opportunity to give the com mission such verbal instructions as he may intend to present to it. Besides he may prepare a formal letter of in structions. That was the method pur sued at the time of the appointment of the Pullman strike commission, of which Colonel Wright was the presi dent. It is understood that few meet ings of the commission will be held in Washington. Episcopal Missionary Council. Philadelphia, Oct. 22.In the pres ence of over a score of bishops and hundreds of clerical and laity dele gates from all sections of the United States, the missionary council of the Protestant Episcopal church in Amer ica began its sessions here during the day. The opening service was held in St. James church, when Bishop Gaylor of Tennessee preached the sermon and Bishop T/uttle of Missouri conducted the celebration of the holy communion^ BOLOCADST IN CBICAGO FIVE MEN LOSE THEIR LIVES IN A SUGAR REFINING PLANT FIRE. DEAD MAY REACH THIRTY Not Known How Many Men Were in the Drying House at the Time and Estimates Place the Loss of Life From Thirty Down to TenFour Men Leap From the Upper Floors to Their Death. Chicago, Oct. 22.Five men are known to have lost their lives in a fire which partially destroyed the plant of the Chicago branch of the Glucose Sugar Refining company, situated at Taylor street and the Chicago river. The list of dead will certainly be much greater than five and may reach as high as thirty. The estimates run all the way from that number down to ten. Only one of the five men whose bodies have been recovered has been identified. His name is Frank Roth enberg, foreman skull crushed in leaping from fifth story. The fire broke out with an explosion in the drying house, which is seven stories in height and stands close to the main building of the plant, which is fourteen stories high. A third struc ture is four stories high. The two smaller buildings were completely de stroyed and the larger building was badly damaged. The fire spread after the explosion with such rapidity that it was impossible for the men in the upper stories of the drying house to make their escape and it is the number of men believed to have been at work on the seventh floor that caused the uncertainty in the list of dead. Some of the employes who made their es cape say that there were twenty or thirty and others say that there were not more than ten at work when the fire broke out. Whatever the number, all are dead. Four men leaped from the upper floors and all met death. The fifth man in the list of dead is an electrician, who is known to have en tered the building and was there at the time of the fire. He is supposed to be dead, for the reason that all the firemen and laborers about the burned building say that no man made his escape from the upper floors. Frank Moore was working on the fourth floor and made his escape by sliding down the water pipe. He declared that none of the men in the floors above him were able to get away. It is not likely that the number of dead will be known with accuracy within twenty-four hours. The day house and the other smaller building of the plant are a mass of red hot debris, and it will be impossible to search the ruins for several hours. It will take considerable time to com plete the work after it shall have been commenced. Secretary Glass of the refining com pany said at 2 o'clock a. m. that he estimated the loss at $500,000. GENERAL MILES ROBBED. Insignia and Jewels Stolen From a Honolulu Hotel. Honolulu, Oct. 15.Lieutenant Gen eral Nelson A. Miles arrived here on the 9th of this month on the transport Thomas and remained in Honolulu two days, during which he paid a visit to Pearl harbor and examined the Hon olulu coast line where forts are to be erected.

Some of the general's in signia and jewels was stoien from the rotunda of the Hawaiian hotel. The thief took advantage of a dance and reception given at the hotel to the distinguished visitors and was de tected early in the evening. On thi following day the valise was recovered a short distance from the hotel. It had been cut open, the "jewelry and in signia taken, but the papers left un touched. General Miles resumed his journey on the Thomas on Oct. 11. CASUALTIES OF THE YEAR. Nearly Three Thousand People Killed in Railway Accidents. Washington, Oct. 22.The number of persons killed in train accidents during the months of April, May and June last, as shown by a bulletin is sued by the interstate commerce com mission during the day giving the re ports made by the railroad companies, was 140 and the injured 1,810. Acci dents of other kinds, including those sustained on or off cars, etc., swell the aggregate to 616 killed and 9,520 injured, or a total of 10,136 casualties. The total casualties during the fiscal year ended June 30, last, including the above figures, was 2,819 killed and 39,800 injured.

Embezzler Commits Suicide. Hartford, Conn., Oct. 22.John H. Wadham, aged sixty-five, a clerk in the office Of Comptroller Chamberlain, committed suicide by hanging himself in a washroom at the capitol late in the afternoon.
