NEW HAVEN, CONN., FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 28, 19(10. THE CARRINGTON PUBLISHING CO. IB SlTTinit STRIKE Negotiations Now Admitted by Both Sides to be Under Way. A CONCESSION TO THE MEN INCREASE IN WAGES REPORTED TO HAVE DEEX OFFER ED. President Mitchell Suys the Operators Have Agreed to Malie It Ten Per Cent, They Will Not, However, Negotiate Through the Miners' tender Nor Recognize the Unions ThU Not like ly to Prevent Agreement. . Philadelphia, Sept. 27. The towering feature of the coal strike situation to day and one which attracted the atten tion of all interests involved was the -widely circulated report that negotia tions are pending and rapidly nearing completion, for an amicable settlement cf the strike. While the identity of the person or persons who are said to be at work en deavoring to bring about the immediate end peaceful adjustment of the differ ences between the "employers and em ployes has not been disclosed, it was openly admitted in authoritative sources that such endeavor was In pro gress. President Truesdale of the Lackawanna Co. is quoted as mak ing such admission, but In what man ner or by whom the negotiations were Leing conducted, he declined to state. President Mitchell, the head of the Striking miners' organization, express ed the belief that the operators had de cided to offer the miners an increase of wages, but, he, too, declined to admit whether he possessed any further Infor mation on the subject. From Scranton to-night came the statement that at a conference of coal operators of that section the opinion was prevalent that the influences at j work were of a strong political nature End that the operators would be obliged to offer the men at least the concession of an increase in wages. The informa tion upon which the operators based their conclusion that the working in fluences were political, could not be learned to-night. ' ' f Coupled with nearly all the reports cf a probably early settlement of the trouble came the announcement that the men woulij be offered an Increase of pay but that the mine owners would positively refuse to arbitrate their grievances through President Mitchell or in any way give recognition to the miners' union. This refusal, however, would not prove a difficult obstacle to overcome. President Mitchell in his open letter to the public having ex preseed his willingness to accept a set tlement through separate conferences of committees of the employes and their direct employers. If the railroad pres idents and others who controlled the mines would accept this proposition he Bald he would waive all claim to the recognition of the union. One condition he exacted, however, and that was that these various confer ences should be held the same day and Jn the same city. Matters were quiet throughout the strike regions to-day and the strikers' forces were increased by the closing of a few mines. that the reduction in tolls and in crease in selling price will permit, the figuring to be done with the existing scale of wages as the basis. It will be exacted that the Mine Workers' union shall not figure In the negotiations and that the men shall return to work with out any ceremony further than a guar antee of the advance in wages that will be proffered. TO ACT AS ARBITRATOR. Cardinal Gibbons llus Ucen Asked to Act by One Side. Baltimore, Sept. 27. Cardinal Gib bons has been asked to act as arbi trator between the striking miners and the operators of the anthracite coal re gion of Pennsylvania. While admit ting that he has been approached on the subject his eminence said to-night that he had heard from only one side of the parties in the controversy and must decline to discuss the question of arbitration until all had been heard. "Will you consent to act if both sides do approach you?" he was asked. "In that case I shall take the matter un der very serious consideration, very se rloua consideration," he remarked, as if to emphasize the situation. He would be glad to do anything In his power to help solve the problem which eertously affects so many souls. It is said on good authority that the cardinal has practlcaly agreed to arbi trate the differences; and It Is thought likely that the various Interests con cerned will decide to leave the settle ment of their disagreement to the head of the Catholic church in the United States.

OPERATORS 31 EFT IN SCRANTON Ceneral Opinion That They Must Yield to influences at Work. Scranton, Pa., Sept. 27. At an infor mal conference of the local operators to-night the report of the negotiations for settling the strike was discussed and the consensus of opinion was that Influences rennrted to he at work to ward a settlement are of a poltlioal hue end that these Interests cannot advance any argument that will cause the oper ators to turn from the course they have mapped out, namely fighting to a finish the threatened invasion of the anthracite region by the United Mine Workers' organization. The general opinion here Is that the Influences referred to are of such a powerful nature that the operators can not well stand out against them and It is believed 'that the strike will be set tled. The means of a settlement, it Is eald, will be as follows: The big carrying companies will grant a slight reduction in tolls; the operators will raise the price of coal and the wages of the miners will be in creased according to the percentage 1,100 Men at Work Clearing Away the Debris-Means Provided for Their Payment at the End of I'ach Day Commerce Being Resumed Praise for the Fortitude ot the People.

' (Copyright, Associated Tress, 1000.) Pekln, Sept. 21, via Taku, Sept. 25, All the foreign ministers have address ed, notes to Prince Ching suggesting the return to Pekln of the emperor and the court. The notes were informal and not written in a diplomatic capacity. The writers do not consider them bind ing upon their respective governments. The diplomats acted Jointly in the matter, but the letters were sent indi vidually. These did not contain any assurances, but merely suggested the re turn of the emuiror. Prince Ching un dertook to deliver the notes. The outcome is a matter of specula tion, the doubtful element being under the influence of Prince Tuan and Gen eral Tung Fuh Slang, who may restrain the court. General Chaffee, discussing the prob abilities to-day, said: "I do not believe that any European monarch would en ter the camp of his allied enemies, and I doubt that the empress dowages will do so. It is generally conceded that the restoration of the Chinese government is essential. I have favored the with drawal of the main allied force to Yang Tsun and Tlcn Tsln, leaving two thou sand mixed troops to guard the lega tions." W.

Crcceus, the -king of stallions', 'added a Jewel to his crown to-day by winning in five hard driven heats the $20,000 race at the New Eng land Trotting HOrse Breeders' associa tion on the Readville track. So much a favorite was the son of Robert Mc Gregor before the great trial began that the pools were barred against him. It looked for two heats as if thi great stake would be 'wrested from the king by that wonderful little trotter, Charley Herr, the winner of the Massachusetts stake race last year. But gamey as was Charley Herr his strength was not equal to the task, and his star set In the third heat, when Creceus beat htm at the wire.

The race as a whole was undoubtedly the greatest ever seen In New England A Danger to Liberty Another Organ ized Attempt by Small Minority to Interrupt Proceedings A Boy Admits Tlmt He Was Paid to Make a Disturb ancc Other Incidents of the Cam palgn.

Three evening meetings were arranged for and all of them were at tended by large audiences.

"The only danger of im perialism that will ever come in this country," he said, "Is if It is invited as a reaction against anarchy. Anarchy is the handmaiden of tyranny. If ever we grow to substitute mob violence for the orderly liberty that we enjoy under the law, if ever we grow to exchange for government by debate in the legls laturee of the country and on the stunip the violence that finds expression in either word or deed, then we Indeed are within a measureable distance of losing our liberty." Another organized attempt was made by a small minority to interrupt the proceedings. This mob was composed mostly of boys ,with a few men, who shouted for Bryan and cheered so as ta interrupt the speakers. One of the youngsters, being asked why he was acting so, stated that he was hired to do so. They wore uniform caps and acted In concert. ItRYAN'S STVMPING WORK. (Continued on Sixth Page.)
