NOT A DISSENTING VOICE
All the Locals So Far Heard From Vote to
Stay on Strike.
Wilkesbarre. Pa.. Oct. 8.National
President Mitchell of the miners union'
and the three anthracite district presi
dent returned to this city from Buffalo
early this morning. The chief of the
miners declined to discuss President
Roosevelt's proposition and would not
indicate when he* would give his answer
to the president but it is not probable
he will do so until after he has received
the reports of all the local unions which
will meet to-day in accordance with his
Instructions and take action on the ques
tion of whether their members desire to
remain on strike.
Several of the locals met yesterday and
last night. All of them voted to stay
out and it is predicted that when the com
plete returns are In it will be found that
the vote to continue the strike will b,e

Many Letters from Cranks.
The mall matter received at strike head
quarters is increasing as the thermometer
goes down. Probably the largest mail
since the strike was inaugurated, was re
ceived to-day. Scores of letters are from
eccentric persons giving advice as to what
to do, and many are received from per
sons who want the strike ended so that
they can get coal. One postal card
reached headquarters from Canada on
which was written:
- "Please take the advice in third chap
ter. 14th verse, St. Luke's gospel and let
,V3 have some coal."
Very Quiet In the Wyoming.
A Sabbath-like stillness reigned
throughout the Wyoming valley this
morning, neither the sheriff nor the sol

The Answer to the President
President Mitchell has written his
answer to President Roosevelt, but he de
clines to state what Its nature is. The
letter was dictated before noon and is now
in the mails on its way to Washington.
Mr. Mitchell will not give out the text of
the letter because It would be discourte
ous to the president and whatever infor
mation the communication contained must
come from Washington. In view of the
statement issued by President Mitchell at
1 o'clock to-day, It is hardly likely that
the proposition of President Roosevelt
for the men to go to work and have the
conditions of the coal region investigated
afterward was accepted. , "
THE PRESENCE OF SOLDIERS
Difference of Opinion as to What the
ffect Will Be. /
Tamaqua. Pa., Oct. 8.There is differ
ence of opinion as to the effect that the
presence of an increased number of sold
iers will have on the strike situation, but
if the mine workers voice their sentiments
the effect will be to'strengthen the strik
ers. Throughout the Panther Creek re
gion the operators take an opposite view.
The interest centers not-in the fact that
, more troops are at hand but that there is
to be a determined and decisive test of
strength between the mine owners and
No threats are made against the. guards

general feeling is one of apathy. Busi

Sf.H ist&L uiii'n n'iflnlmn-iiJuteifamrjui.Twff

Operators Make a Slight Gain.
The .operators made a slight gain in
their working force, to-day. The two trol
ley cars which co e the men to the dif
ferent colleries wen well filled, while
many walked to woii There was no
demonstration. The feVv inkers on the
streets watched the men wi:' Indifference.
It is claimed that more coai *.,*!= dumped
from the No. 4 mine of the liehi^rh Coal
& Navigation company yesterday than at
any time since the strike began. A train
of coal was shipped from the Potts col
liery, near Ashland, in the night. The
train carried about 400 tons, representing
two days' work. This is the largest such
shipment made from this colliery since
the beginning of the strike.
The operators of Greenwood colliery
claim to have a large number of certificate
miners at work but will not state whether
they have started to cut coal.

THE MEN XRE DETERMINED
The Voting Shows That the Whole United
States Army Could Not Affect Them.
Wilkesbarre, Pa., Oct. 8.The following
official statement was issued from strike
headquarters at 1 o'clock this afternoon:
At 12:30 noon fifty, telegrams had been
received from as many mass meetings in
various sections of the anthracite coai
regions, conveying the Information that by
unanimous vote of the men on strike, all
of whom attended such meetigns, itwas re
solved that the presence of the entire
United States army In the anthracite coal
regions would not Induce the men to re
turn to work until the demands of the
Shamokln convention had been conceded,
the strike declared off by a delegate con
vention of mine workers, or by the district
and national officers.
Similar telegrams are constantly being
received and It Is expected that every
mining town will be heard from by 6
o'clock to-night. Thus far the returns
emphasize and substantiate the declara
tions of the officials of the miners union
made at the Washington conference, that
the strikers are not deterred from going
to work through fear of bodily harm.
At 7 o'clock to-night all telegrams will
be submitted to the representatives of the
press for their examination.

won't be heated.
"We haVe to use hard coal to heat the
cars," said General Manager Hield of the
street cat company, this morning. "We've
got only about 200 tons on hand. That will
last for a while. When it's gone we shall
trust to Providence." Mr. Hield added
this in doubtful tone as if uncertain
whether Providence.,- would step out of its
way to please a corporation.
"No, we could not put soft coal in the
car stoves. Whenever the car stopped or
started the stove would cough out as
much gas as the regular old Benjamin
Franklin heater, and we'd have to run
ambulance trailers to keep our passengers
alive. As for electric heaters, they're pos

we have bnly a verbal assurance that we'll
get more when our present supply is up

coal company now would contract to Jill
a scuttle day after to-morrow. Here
again, we're trustingto Providence.
"And if we can't get Pennsylvania eoal,
we'll have to. put on automobiles, I sup
pose. Because Iowa or Illinois coal could
never keep up the steam pressure that
we need to run our plant."
Lighting Companies Threatened.
Yet the absence of street cars won't
matter so much, perhaps, because few
Minneapolltans will dare to stay out late
this winter. They'll have no light to burn
when they get home. The gas companies
and the electric light companies are also
trusting to Providence for coal to keep
their meters moving.

It is understood that there having been
comparatively few responses to the com

has been made for help.
