"JOHN MITCHELL, "President U. M. W. of A. "W. B. WILSON, "Secretary. "GEORGE HARTLEIN, "Secretary of Meeting." Washington, Oct. 17.-The response of John Mitchell, president of the United Mine Workers, to President Roosevelt's notification that he has appointed a com mission, was made public today. It informs him of the action of the executive boards of Districts I, 7 an 9, in calling a convention and agreeing to rec ommend unanimously the resumption of work and the submission of the differences between the "operators and the mine work ers of the anthraclte coal fields" to the commission. The reply expresses confidence that the convention will agree to the arbitration of the "imminent and impartial men" Chosen by the president, and expresses gratitude to the president for his patriotic efforts to bring about an honorable settlement of the strike. The reply goes at length into the grievances of the miners and concludes with the expression of the hope and beliet that from this arbitration will come a com plete, satisfactory and permanent solution of the troubles which have vexed the anthracite field from time immemorial. Are Electing Delegates. Wilkesbarre, Pa., Oct. 17.-All the locals throughout the anthracite coal fields are engaged today in electing delegates to the Mine Workers' convention to be held here next Monday for the purpose of consider ing the acceptance of the plan of arbitra tion submitted by President Roosevelt. There will be objections raised on the floor of the convention to certain features of the plan, but they will not be of-a seri ous nature. "It would be a remarkable body," said one union officer, "if Bob men in conven tion were of one mind in all features of this labor struggle." Many obstacles are to be surmounted, including the question of finding work immedimately for all the strikers. Every man wants his old place back, but as the companies have decided to take care of all the men who have stood by them during the strike there will be some disap pointments. This matter will be fought out on the floor of the convention. Officers of the union confidently believe that it will be amicably adjusted. It is probable the delegates will decide to care for all men who are not given work at once. Big" Fire in Chauiauqua. [BY ASSOCIATED PRESS.] Jamestown, N.

REFUTES FAUGUSTUS'S BALD MISSTATEMENT Over His Own Signature, General Super intendent of the Amalgamated Gives the Facts Concerning a Meeting of Which the Butte Monte Cristo Is Try ing to Make Campaign Matter. On several occasions Mr. Heinze has publicly charged that after the election two years ago he was Invited to a confer ence with other mine managers and requested by Senator Clark to sanction the passage of an eight-hour law that would be defective. He claims that he was invited to the conference by Senator Clark who, in a personal note, merely requested him to call at the senator's office, not stating any par ticular object. Mr. Heinle makes many positive state ments about the Interview, and among others that he indignantly walked out of the conference. Everyone who knows John Gillie, gen eral superintendent of the Amalgamated company, will have no hesitancy in pro nouncing any statement that he might make true. The better they know Mr. Gillie the more certain they will be that it is true. Over His Signature. Over his own signature he makes the following statement relative to the meeting referred to by Mr. Heinze: "It was on Sunday, the 27th of January, Igoo, that a meeting was held at the office of Senator Clark by a number of mining men of Butte, referred to by Mr. Heinze in some of his speeches. I was present at the meeting, and went in response to a note from Mr. Wethey asking me to meet Mr. Clark. There were present at that meeting besides Senator Lark, Messrs. F. Augus tus Heinze, Frank Klepetko, R. F. Pearce, Charles Clark, A. H. Wethey and myself, and my recollection is that the late Mr. Frank E. Corbett was also present. What Was Discussed. "The only question discussed at the meeting was as to the time necessary to put the eight-hour system in operation at the smelters. It was thought by several that it would be difficult to get a sufficient number of experienced men, and that it would not be possible to make the change on short notice, and that a reasonable length of time should be allowed. There was no suggestion by any one that the law should be so drawn as to be made ineffective, and no one at the meeting expressed opposition to the principle of the law. Any statements to the contrary are untrue. It was the generally accepted view that a reasonable length of time should be allowed to the smelters, and that view was accepted by the legislature, and it will be remembered that the law was made to take effect go days after its pas sage.

Tur ner today shot and killed Albert Ham ilton of Pittsburg and W. J. Mallard in the office of the law firm of Canter & McIntyre, in Broad street, and then com mitted suicide. Turner was at one time president and treasurer of the Climax Bottling com pany, in which the other two men were interested, and the three met today to effect a settlement growing -out of an alleged defalcation on the part of Tur ner. During the conference, a heated discus sion arose and Turner, drawing a re volver, killed Hamilton and Mallard, and then turning the weapon upon himself, committed suicide. Turner came from Mount Vernon. N. Y. It is alleged that he was a defaulter to the sum of $5,ooo in his accounts. A mem ber of the law firm in whose office the shooting occurred said that after the three had been in conference Turner said: "Well, here's a check for $5,ooo.' With that he put his hand in his pocket, flashed out a revolver and fired point blank at Mallard. Hamilton made a jump for Turner and grappled with him but Turner succeeded in turning his revolver on Hamilton and killed him. Before any one could get into the room the murderer killed ti gself. REBELS SURROUND GONAIVES .Report Confirmed That Haytlen Leader Embarked on Our Cruiser. Port au Prince, '.aytl, Oct. 17.-The report that M, Firmin, the revolutionary leader, has embarked on the United States cruiser Cincinnati, is confirmed. The troops of the provincial government surround Gonaives, the headquarters of the revolutionists. The Cincinnati, the French cruiser D'Assex and the German cruiser Falke are off to Gonaivcs for the protection of foreign interests DR, CAYLEY IS HOLDING HIS OWN POSSIBILJTY THAT HE MAY RE COVER ALTHOUGH HE IS STILL IN DELICATE STATE. MRS. CHAPMAN TELLS OF WHAT WOMAN TOLD HER Came Into Her Room on the Night of the Shooting and Declared She Had Shot Dr. Cayley for Taking Liberties With Her-Dr. Cayley Identifies J. W. Kelley as the Man Who Shot Him. Few shooting affairs that have come to public notice of late have been more com plicated than the recent altercation involv ing Dr. H. A. Cayley and J. W. Kelley, both of whom were well known in Butte, and occupied positions of the highest re gard in the estimation of those who knew them best. In most affairs of this kind, time sheds light upon the misfortune; but, in the present instance, the evidence that has been accruing since last S'mday, when the shooting occurred, only tends to complil cate matters, making the whole situation very much involved. In the first place, it must be remembered that since the shooting was made public, the victim, Dr. Cayley, has made three dis tinct statements concerning it. Each one of these stories conflicts with the other. Said He Shot Himself. When first taken to the hospital, after the shooting, Dr Cayley informed the detective who had been detailed on the case, that he had shot himself. However, the police department was not satisfied with this statement of the affair, and they pressed Dr. Cayley for a further statement, making him believe at the time that his death would surely result. Then the doctor told the second story, to the effect that Kelley had shot him while in the apartments of Madame l.aBonte. The third version of the unfortunate affair came yesterday, when, believing the doctor to be on the point of death, County Attorney Breen, Chief Reynolds, Dr. Han son and four other men were summoned to hear the dying confession of Dr. Cayley. The words spoken "in articulo mortis" had occasion to cause considerable prejudice in the matter; but the peculiar circum stances under which they were brought forth has not been given sufficient consid eration. He Still Had Hopes. County Attorney Breen asked Cayley: "Have you given up all hopes sf recov ery?" Whereupon the doctor answered, "No." Mr. Breen then said: "If the man is in this state of mind, there is no need of us going any further in the matter." This remark on the part of the county attorney is in accordance with the law, for .an alleged deathbed confession is of no value unless the victim is reasonably cer tain that his end is at hand. At this point of the ante-mortem exami nation Dr. Hanson, who has been attend ing Cayley ever since the fatal evening, interposed, and insisted that he would surely die. It Was Drawn From Him. C. F. Kelley, who is the counsel for the accused man, said in regard to the con fession: "In respect to this statement of I)r. Cayley, I believe that the statement was not voluntary, but was the statement of a man in a weakened condition, drawn from him by those who were more zealous to furnish a sensation than to perform a public good." There are many links of evidence that will have to be established before it will be known for a certainty who is really guilty. The mysterious disappearance of Madame LaBonte, the woman in the case, is an incident to which more significance will be attached when the trial is given a public hearing. Sentiment runs high, and each man has his friends. Too many peo ple are permitting themselves to be preju diced by mere hearsay evidence. So far all of the conflicting statements have emanated from but one source, and nothing whatever in regard to the affair has been said by two other actors, who are equally as prominent in the matter as the victim. J. W. Kelley has wisely refrained to say anything whatsoever until the time of trial, and his side of the story will make many points clear that appear very much obscured at this time. Then, too, it will be very important to (Continued on Page Three.) WANTS TO KNOW WHAT THEY HAVE HEINZE IS STILL AFTER FIGURES ON FORTUNES OF A. F. BRAY AND I D. J. HENNESSY. [SPECIAr.

The discouraging feature to demc.cracy was that the people's mindls were mIlade utl, in favor of republican politics and rliepub lican; prosperity; people were too busily employed in profitable pursuits to listen to democratic fallacies and misreplresenta ionl,, and besides, democracy had nIo real issuel' upon which to found their usual argunment of cop]plaint.
