PADDY LEIGHEY IS
AT HIS OLD GAME
WALKERVILLE POLICE SAY LAD IS
PILFERING RIGHT AND LEFT
IN THE HILL CITY.
The residents of Walkerville are pgaii
beginning to complain of the depredations
of Paddy Leighey, the i8-year-old lad who
has given authorities of the city on the
hill so much trouble in the past.
This morning Peter McCabe reported to
Marshal MAce Duffy that the lad is agaig
at his old tricks and that he has of late
missed a number of articles from his barn.
one or two of the stolen pieces being of
considerable value. Young Leighey is r
smooth customer, and while there is no
doubt that he is the guilty party, it hai
heretofore been impossible to catch him
in the act of stealing.
Marshal Duffy will take the matter its
hand and there are likely to be other
places that will be capable of holding tiht
young pilferer more comfortably thai
Walkerville. At that time, as now, it
was impossible to prove his guilt, and h4
was accordingly released. For about si
-months nothing was seen of him up on
the hill until recently, when he once more
bobbed up serenely.

MINE OWNERS NOTI TRACTABLE
W II Not Consider United Mine Workers, Despite the Fact That Such a
Recognition Was Understood When the Strike Commission Was
Appointed by President Roosevelt to Take Up Inquiry.
t[Y ASSOCIATED PRrSS.]
Washington, Nov. ta.-That the five an
tbracite coal mine owners will resist to the
utmost the effort to make the recognition
of the United Mine Workers of America
an issue in the arbitration which is now
in progress is made evident by the replies
to the statement of President John Mitch
ell of the miners' organization, which
have been filed with the strike commis
sion.
There are five of these answers in ad
dition to that of President a,aer, which
was given out yesterday, and all dwell
with especial empnasis and marked unan
imity on this point. They also agree in
resisting the demands of the miners for
an increase of pay for piece work, a re
duction of hours for time work and for
the weighing rather than the measurement
of coal.
Recorder Wright left for tjie anthracite
regions today, taking these replies with
him. In addition to the statement of the
Reading company by President Baer, the
list comprises the replies of the Delaware
& Hudson company, the Lackawanna, the
Lehigh Valley, the Pennsylvania and the
Scranton. The reply of the delaware &
Lackawanna Railway company to Presi
dent Mitchell's statement is signed by W.
H. Truesdale, president, who says that the
company owns a5 anthracite collieries and
employs 12,ooo workmen in this branch of
its business.
Will Not Recognize Union.
Mr. Truesdale, like Mr. Baer, objects to
making the recognition of the union one
of the issues to be considered by the com
mission, saying that in the proposition
made by the company for arbitration one
of the express conditions was "that the
findings of the commission should govern
th econditions of employment between it
the conditions of employment between it
He adds: This company unequivocally
asserts that it will, under no condition,
recognize or enter into any agreement with
the association known as the United Mine
Workers of America or any branch
thereof. Nor will it permit said associa
tion or its officers to dictate the terms and
conditions under watch it shall conduct
its business."

until the president's return to Memphis
next Wednesday.
During the short stop nere to change
engines, the president got out of his car
and paced up and uown the platform. A
large crowd had gathered. After greeting
them with a pleasant good morning, the
president stepped off the platform and
took a brisk walk down the tracks, stop
ping occasionally to speak to a yard
switchman or an engineer in his cab on a
siding.
The crowd was amazed at this display
of unconv.entionality. The secret service
men with the train started to follow the
president but he waved them back. The
police, however, took care to keep the
crowd back of the end of the train and the
president had a clear field for his constt
tutional.
The train left at To :41 for the West and
as it pulled out the crowd cdeered heart

The president came out on the back
platform and waved goodbye.,
We Are Making Money.
Washington, Nov. 12.-Statistics of the
gross postal receipts of the government for
last month, as compared with October,
1go1, at 50o of the largest postoffices in the
country, show a total of $5,580,599, a" in
crease of 13 per cent.
Referring to the recent strike Mr.
Truesdale says he is reliably informed that
80o per cent of the company's employes
were opposed to the strike, but they were
forced to enter it by a majority vote of the
mine workers in other fiefus. Mr. Trues
dale follows closely the lines of Mr. Baer's
argument as to the dissimilarity between
th ewor'* in the anthracite mines and that
in bituminous mines.
Uniform Rate Impossible.
He declares that it is impossible to
adopt a uniform rate to be paid to the
miner for a unit of coal at all mines. The
declaration is also made that the anthra
cite miners, as a rule, do not work as many
hours a day as do the bituminous miners,
anu the opinion is advanced that if the
wages of the anthrrcite miners had been
less than that of other working men they
would have found employment elsewhere.
lie says that "prior to the introdukction
of agitators and mischief makers the an
thracite workers were on an average as
prosperous, comfortable and contented as
any nody of workers of similar employ
ment in this country."
The wages, it is added, are such that
many employes have saved sums every
year.
Mr. Truesdalc resists the demand for a
reduction of go per cent in hours of labor,
saying that no such branch of business
employing thousands of men can hope to
compete successfully in the markets of the
world if its hours of labor are restricted.
He declares that there is no unjust dis
crimination in the weighing of coal, as it
is measured rather than weighed, and he
asserts that the demand is "out of all
reason, and its effect, so far as this com
pany is concerned, is a demand for an
additional increase in the wages now paid
miners of from 5 to 40 per cent."
Present Method Is Just.
The present method of measurement is
declared to be the result of long usage and
fair to all concerned.
President Oliphant of the Delaware &
Hudson company, in his reply, declares
that the wages paid by his company are
just and adequate, lie also says "that
those of its employes who perform contract
or piece work as a matter of their own

There were crowds of ladies and hun
dreds of their masculine friends there
to admire and envy. The lighting effects
were superb, and all who visited the open
ing joined in pronouncing it the most ele
gant affair of the kind ever offered to
Butte.

volition, work only about six hours a day
intl take numerous holidays without the
consent or approval of this respondent, and
their earnings, by hours of actual work
dre, therefore, much higher than those in
any similar employment."
Denial is made of all the allegations in
Copncction with the demand for shorter
hours, and it is contended that such a
reduction necessarily would increase the
irice of coal.
President Oliphant also takes exception
to the proposition to arbitrate the question
of the Miners' union. This position is
plaoced on the ground that the organization
seef(p to control the entire fuel supply of
the ouuntry; that as the union is unincor
porated it is incapable of making a binding
contract, and that the association has
shown its inability to control its own mem
bers.
No Desire to Discriminate.
It says the company has no desire to
discriminate against members of the union.
President Fowler speaks for the Scran
ton Coal company and the Elk Ilill Coal &
Iron company. lie asserts that if the
average wage earned by the anthracite
piece-workers is less than that paid to
workers in other employment, it is because
"they fix their own hours of labor, and the
amount of their earnings without any re
gard to the interests or wishes of their
employers and in disregard of the earn
ings of their employes andi in total disrc
ga;rd of the earnings and welfare of every
other class of employes."
lIHe declares that the men in the mines
do not work to exceed four or five hours a
day. All other charges made by Mr.
\Mitchell are combatted and on the ques
ti,,t of miners' unions Mr. Fowler said:
"\W' deley that agreementls betweenll lll
Iplh.crs arid elmployes through working
I mcl's organizations are hrtneictt and sutc
