IIANWMAY MAKEPEACE MITCHELL CAN NOW CALL A XA TIONAL CONVENTION. COAL tVASHEIUES STOP WORK AND BOTH BIDES SETTLE DOWN FOR DEATH STRUGGLE. [n\ rr.!.i-..RAi-n TO THK nisi i Wllke?l>arrc. IV-nn.. May 22. Rumors prevail }-:' to-night that Senator Hanna has been dele gated by the operator* of the bituminous coal field to us.- his Influence with President Mitchell to avert a strike In that section. In return ho will, it is said, assure Mr. Mitchell that no soft roal will he «;ent into this region, that the sup ply for the seaboard and the Western markets wher«* anthracite coal is used shall remain nor mal, and that be will continue ins afforts to gain concessions from the anthracite operators. What foundation there is for the rumor can not \>r determined here at this time. it is un derstood that Mr. Hanna is to come to this city to "onf^r with Mitchell. He has not yet ar rived, and Mitchell apparently knows nothing of his intended course The miners" president is, however, in such a position that he may postpone the sail for a national convention to suit his convenience. To-day he dismissed the executive rommitteemen of the three districts aft^r a perfunctory session, at which they were presumed to discuss the national strike project. Befrre leaving they gave to him the power to decide the remaining questions of the strike as he shall deem best. He may call the national convention when he desires. He has had In his pocket the call of the Michigan men since Tues day, but tv would not before this admit it. and he may also have the West Virginia miners' requ»-. a t. Th- developments of to-day were toward a lawful conduct of the strike. The operators, defiring to Incite no further violence at the nmnerfss about Pittston. closed them all. The Ftrikers being in an ugly mood, no effort was made this morning to start the washeries. Similar action on the part of the Delaware. Larkawanna and Western and the Delaware and Hudson companies prevented any outbreak in the Lackawanna. district, while In the Shamokin district, when it was learned that a force of two hundred men was marching on the Smith & Myers colliery, work was suspended, and will not be resumed until conditions alter. The activity is now all on the side of mine «T">rators. who "are hurrying preparations to fill the places of the engineers, firemen and pump men who will not remain at work after June 2. In their statement to-day, the operators say: Some idea cf the cost of the strike, or, rather. the loss To the men, can be gathered from the :act that the companies are now paying out the money earned during the nine days the mines iave been running in May The last working »ay was May 10. and for those nine days the ■"ages aggregate about $1,000,000. Since th« "trike began there have been, including to-day. ' a n ■working days, and as the same ratio would -revaJl. the miners have already lost $2,000,000. Labor's loss in cases like this is the country's loss, and we believe such losses would not occur were the men not led blindly by blind leaders. We have not yet considered the proposition of polling the men as to whether they will stand by us or the union, and it is doubtful if we will. Mince we heard of the determination of the executive committee to a Mew the engineer*, flre "men* and pumpmen to work only eight hours. we had not had time to consider the matter fully; but we do not, at the first flush, consider II ax all reasonable. PretMent Mitchell believes that the operators wtti grant the demands made yesterday in order to keep their mines free of water. He said: Fumpraen and firemen necessary to the work of keeping the mines clear of water after June 2 will be allowed in any mine that complies with the conditions laid down in the resolution passed yesterday. Our terms, however, are so reason able that we cannot conceive it possible that the operators will consider their rejection. We offer to furnish men to keep their mines clear of v.ater on condition that they pay them for the j»reH=r,» the rates we have specified. Th» greatest danger from flooded mines is in the Wyoming Valley. For a distance of nine miles the workings are continuous, and. if flooded, would form a great subterranean lake under this city. Mill Creek. Parsons". Miners Mills. Plains. Ashley. Newtown, Sugar Notch and Warrior Run. In this territory there are eighteen collieries, six owned by the Delaware Snd Hudson, three by the Lehigh Valley, five by the Lehigh and Wilkesbarre and four by in dividual companies. UVSIC LEADS MARCH OX WASH FRY OPERATOR AND OPERATIVES AGREE NOT TO WORK UNTIL. STRIKE IS SETTLED. Tamaqua. Pens-. May 22.— Led by a drummer and a bugler, several hundred striking miners marched en the Smith-Meyers washery this morning. A in a tree fired his gun as a warning to the n»n ot the washery that the strikers were ap proaching. Operations were at once discontinued. When the Ptrttten were within fifty yards of the operation they were met by Charles Meyers, one of th% operators. Mr. Meyers appealed to them not to damage any property nor to injure any of the men. H« enld that he would pledge his word that not a pound of coal would be washed until the, strike had Yen settled. The marchers then appointed a com mittee to meet the employes, and the latter prom 1««<I not ■>,', work until nn order to do so is issued by the frited Mine Workers' officials.

(Copyright; 1002: By The Trlbun* Association.) (SpedaJ to Th» New- York Trlbnne by French Cabl'.t London. May 23.— The second volume of "The Times's" history of the war in South Africa, published to-day, is in many ways a sensational work— sensational in that it makes disclosures which up to now have been scrupulously con cealed from the public by press censorship and studied vagueness of dispatches. The exact text of General Buller's famous heliogram Is stated to be as follows: "As it ap pears certain that I cannot relieve Ladysmlth for another month, and even then only by means of protracted siege operations, you will burn your ciphers, destroy your guns, lire your ammunition, and make the best terms possible with the general of the besieging forces, after giving me time to fortify myself on th* Tugela." This message was at first taken by Sir George White for a Boer forgery. WHOLESALE PRICE OF COAL $7 BIT THE RETAIL RATE IS STILL $»».%- PRESIDENTS HUM. . The decision 'if the presidents of th* coal carrying companies to withdraw the statement on behalf of the operators, giving their position with regard to the miners and their reason for refusing the de mands of the union, which was to have been made public by President Baer of the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad "n Wednesday evening, was a disappointment to some of the independent opera tors yesterday. They a.re anxious to have the strike ended, as they were drawn Into the tight with the union whether they liked It or not. by the coal car rying companies, and had hop«-d that when th« statement was made public It might open ■ dis cussion which would lead to ending the trouble. It is now known that the statement was drafted after the meeting of the coal presidents In th» Jersey Central Building on Tuesday, and th3t a change In the plans of the presidents made them change their mind* regarding the statement. It was reported that embodied in the statement was a letter from President Baer to President Mitchell, of the United Mine Workers. The nature of the letter could not be learned.

May I'.'t. 1 a m — Apparently the coun try is on the brink of peace. A Cabinet Council has been summoned to meet to-day. Various rumors which were current yesterday Indicated that the negotiations between the Boer delegates and Lord Kitchener and Lord MHner at Pre toria had taken a favorable turn. Lord Onslow, the Under Secretary for the Colonies, speaking at Kendal last night, hoped that peace would be proclaimed before the coronation, and it is understood that whereas the government was a few days ago hopeful but not sanguine, it is now sanguine as well as hopeful. A dispatch from Lord Kitchener was received at the War Office yesterday. Its contents were kept secret. »>ut some Importance was attached to th<- communication in Pull Mall Arthur Chamberlain, who is now In Birmingham. VII at once apprised of its purpose. The result f»f the negotiations "ill in any case be Officially communicated for publication the moment it Is known In official circles. A definite statement Ist not expected for a few days. Consols were again purchased freely yester day In anticipation of peace, many buying orders coming from America and the continent. Mr. Chamberlain ha* consented to preside at the coronation dinner. which Is being organized by the leading colonial Institutions In London. Its purpose will be to entertain the distinguished representatives of the British dominions be > ond the (lean who will be assembled here for the coronation festivities. The dinner will be held In the Guildhall on July 11, and It is fully expected that the Colonial Secretary will seise the occasion to deliver an Important speech on th« subject of England's relation! with the col onies. Another Interesting dinner which Is fixed for July will be given by the American Chamber of Commerce In Liverpool, in celebration of Its cen tenary. Wbttelaw Reid and other members «>f the United States special embassy have ac cepted Invitations to be present. The Kln« ha* not Inherit. -A hl?> mothers lurk In the matter of weather.

VIEWS IN OPPOSITION TO THE GOVERN* MEXTS POLICY SET FORTH WITH ELOQUENCE AND PATHOS. fBT TrLr:<.n.»r»i to tsoi THIBI'SE.I Washington. May 22.— The Senate chamber rang C with applause this afternoon when Senator Hoar .completed what will perhaps be declared by his biographers i!vr most eloquent speech of his life. While only the minority of his audience was m sympathy with his contention, everybody who sat under the spell of his oratory was moved by the glow of his rounded periods, and thrilled by tho pathos with which he Invested his plea. The gal leries were crowded, and the floor of the historic chamber contained a larger number .if Senators than has listened to any other •-..fivh on the Philippine question at this session. The venerable statesman from Massachusetts produced no new argument. * and in the main repeated those he has frequently presented against the nation's fixed policy of - colonial expansion, but hi-« utterances to-day were) -. clothed with a wealth of rhetorical adornment that evoked unbounded admiration. Although Senator Hoar'« voice is beginning to show the effect of advanced age, it is still capable, nevertheless, of carrying his words to the remotest Dart of the. Senate chamber, when in passionate outbursts at oratory he desires to emphasise a point. Mr. Hoar occupied the floor continuously for near ly three hours, and at the conclusion of his unusual ly eloquent peroration he was loudly applauded by Senators on both sides of the chamber. The rules of the Senate forbid any kind of demonstra tion, but Senators of both parties ignored th* rules and clapped their hands in utter disregard et the warning admonitions from the Chair. Senator Spooner. than whom there Is no abler or more earnest supporter of th» government's Philippine policy, against which Mr. Hoar spoke. led th« applause, and the Democratic side or t?>e chamber quickly joined, led by Senator Bacon. Mr. Hoar followed closely the typewritten copy, of the speech which lay on the desk in front of him. At times he ■■ me.l to ignore th.- manuscript and branch out into extemporaneous passionate de-» nunciations of the conduct of affairs in the Philip pines, but most of the time he read slowly aai calmly. He was dressed in a light gray spring suit, and moved over the space of only two desks during the delivery of his Ion? address. Hi 3 strength seemed as vigorous at the close of his remarkable effort as at the opening. Not once did his voice quaver or crack, and his gestures were as strong and graceful as ever. Nobody interrupted him with questions or denial, and the Democrats* gave him particular attention, several of them . crossing the chamber and sitting on the Republi can side in order to emphasize their appreciation at his effort. POINTS OF MR. HOAR'S SPEECH. Mr. Hoar maintained that this country Is not at war. "You are righting for sovereignty." he said. 'You are fighting for th« principle of eternal dominion over that people, and that is the only question In issue in the conflict.* When It had been determined to resort to force in the Philip pines, he said, the government took on itself the natural consequences of that decision. The result of a conflict of arms of such a character Inevitably was cruelty on one side .md retaliation by cruelty on the other, and the responsibility rested on those who made the policy. Mr. Hoar said he was to discuss and denounce what seemed to him one of the most wicked and . foolish chapters in history: yet he was compelled to admit that the men who were responsible for it were neither wicked nor foolish. His conscience would not permit him to follow these men. and his conscience was the only authority he felt bound to obey in this matter The share which it was proposed to give the Filipino.- in the scheme of government was an admission that many of them were fit for self-government. The United States was fighting la secure a dependency, not a repub lic: .i government of our making, and not a gov ernment of the Filipinos' making. Discussing the testimony taken by the Philippine Committee. Mr. Hoar said It contained some preg nant admissions. What vindicates that which has been done n far is the saving of the islands from anarchy and the material benefit conferred upon the Philippine people. What the fathers of the republic said and a century of glorious history were appealed to in vain- "Their leavms." Co said, "fell upon the ears of men dazzled by military glory and delirious with the lust of conquest." He compares' the situation in Cuba with that la the Philippines, and demanded ut know which was the better. Mr Hoar recited a chapter of the history of this country which, he said, showed that tha present policy of the government was In contra diction of the Monroe l>octrir;e, as It was a con tradiction of the DeHssnUan of Independence. He said that if the present way was followed the declaration of Independence would be repealed. and nothing would be left of the Monroe Doctrine except the principle >>'. brr.ta! selfishness. This government had erected a republic in Cube. and a despotism in the Philippines. Six hundred 1 millions of treasure and ten thousand American lives had been sacrificed in that endeavor. In th» Philippines the American flag had been made the. rmblem el sacrilege and of the burning of homes and el the horror of the water torture. He be- , llrve.i that our officer? In general were humane. -But in some cases they have carried on your warfare with •< mixture of American ingenuity and Castlltan cruelty." THE PHILIPPINES AND Cf3\. "What have your ideals coat you?" Mr. Hoar Inquired. "For the Philippine Islands you have. ha. l to repeal the Declaration of Independence. For Cuba you had to reaffirm and give it new lustre. For the Philippine Islands you have had to convert the Monroe Doctrine into a doctrine of mere selfishness. For Cuba you have acted on It ■ad vindicated It. In Cuba you have the eternal gratitude of a Tree people. in the Philippine Isl ands you have the hatred and sullen submission of ' a subjugated pesple. From Cuba you have brought home nothing Inn glory. From the Philippines yon have brought home nothing si glory." Referring to the alleged cruelties committed m th. Philippines. Mr. Hoar said he believed Ameri can soldiers were as brave and humane as ever •■•!. They had done simply what always we i he .tone in like eon Jit ions. The chief guilt was on the heads of those who ,-rente.l the conditions. After reviewing briefly the capture of Agulnaldr) by Qenssn) Funston. whose methods he sharply criticised. Mr. Hoar expressed the belief that th«» Senate did not know what It was doing when It esnsenead to General Funston'a promotion, and intimated that the result might have been different if Mm Senate had been fully aware ,-.; all the facts. Alluding again to »he horrors' In the Philip pines. Mr. Hsu* said: "I hope and believe they were unknown m the War Department, I know they were unknown to President Roosevelt, and I known they were unknown to President MeKlnley.** ■He did not believe, however, that the statement that the war h.i>l bees conducted with unexampled humanity would be accepted by the people. He de nounced the seder alleged to have been given by Central Smith, and laid particular stress on the I nttatton camps, which he likened to the dreadful scenes in Anderson vlile Prison in the Civil War. He demanded that these things cease, and .. that the administration declare on what eternal principle it would act in the Philippines.
