M BREAK IN THE STRIKE ADDITIONAL NOTICES OF WAGE IN' ( CREASE HATE NO EFFECT. Indications That th Miner Will In sist on Further Concenlonl -Recognition of the National Organisation , Moy Alio be Demanded The Great Mans Meeting at Wllke.barre-IB.OOO Mlnera In Line-Addressed by Presi dent Mitchell. Philadelphia, Oct. 2. No break has yet occurred In the ranks of the strik ing mine workers, though additional notices of the offer of an increase of 10 per cent, in wages were posted through, out the region to-day. In fact there were many indications to-dey of an In tent on the part of the strikers to Insist on other concessions, and to also re main out until the operators give recog nition to their national organisation. The feature of the day was the pa rade and mass meeting of the mine workers at Wilkesbarre, arranged with the object of demonstrating the Btrength of the United Mine workers. A conservative estimate places the number of strikers in the procession at fifteen thousand, and the day was gen erally given up as a holiday by the people of Wilkesbarre and other Lu zerne county towns. " The meeting was addressed by Presi dent Mitchell and others. In hla speech he did not intimate anything as to the probability of an early conven tion of miners, and after the meeting, when questioned on that eubject, he said that not a local union had request ed the calling of a convention. A significant move in this direction, however, developed to-night at Shenan doah, where all the local branches of the United Mine workers held meetings and selected delegates to a convention to be called later by President Mitchell. This is the first announcement of the selection of convention delegates. The, entire region was quiet to-day and very few mines were in operation. FEES. MITCHELL DETERMINED, Will Not Declare the Strike Off Until Convention So Decides. Wilkesbarre, Pa,, Oct. 1 The parada and mass meting of the striking miners in this city to-day was the greatest la bor demonstration ever held In North eastern Pennsylvania. The weather was favorable for a large turn out. Presi dent Mitchell reviewed the parade and afterwards addressed the miners. Ha said In part: "The greatest strike in the history of the world is drawing to a close. Al ready the great coal carrying compa nies have agreed to Increase your wages ten per cent., which Is a great victory in itself. But this does not sat isfy us, and the time is not far distant when the anthracite coal miners will receive as much for their labor as any ether class of workmen in the world. "This strike shall not be declared off by me. It shall not be ended until a convention of anthracite miners shall bo decide. Every union and every col liery will be asked to send one or more delegates to a convention to determine the question for themselves." Mr. Mitchell then briefly reviewed the Struggles of the miners during the past forty years, and said that the miners cannot expect to have all the evils which have been heaped upon them du ring the last half century of unorgan ized labor righted at once. Continuing, Mr. Mitchell said he was confident of victory in the end. He urged the min ers to stand together, and asked that no man return to the mines until the ivlctory is complete. President Mitchell's address, so far as outlining any future move on the part of the labor leaders Is concerned, was a. disappointment. He intimated strongly last night that he would define the po eitlon of the union to-day on the ten per cent, concession. His failure to do so has caused the impression to go out that he is still undecided what should be done. SECOND REGIMENT SECOND. Defeated by the Third in the Annual Brigade Shoot. Niantic, Oct. 2. All the officers stated that the work at the annual brigade shoot to-day was entirely satisfactory, even though the men were forced to ehoot under a heavy cross wind. The Fourth regiment did not compete. The best score made firing at five hundred yards was by Hatfield of the Third regiment, who scored 83. The best score firing two hundred yards was made by Sergeant Sherwin of the Third, who scored 32. It was generally conceded that the Third regiment team clearly outclassed all their competitors. The winning team, the Third, took the large hall clock, which one team must win three times before it becomes their property. The second prlie, a large roll top desk, was won by the Second regiment team. The third prize, an oak library, was won by the First regiment.

THE VATICAN BURGLARIZED SECURITIES AND SILVER WORTH 300,000 LIRETA KEN. A Safe on the Second Floor Forced The Burglars Evidently Well Ac quainted With the Apartments In vestigations by the Vatican Police Give No Cine to the Thieves. Rome. Oct. 2. It became known to the nubile to-day that thieves had en tered the Vatican, forced a safe and carried off securities worth 857,000 lire rabout 870,000) and 3,000 lire In silver. The safe situated on the second floor, belongs to the management of the apostolic palace, which looks after the horses and carriages and the decoration of St. Peter's Cathedral. Evidently the burglars were well ac quainted with the apartments and pre- nared for the theft at their ease. Thus far the investigations by the Vatican police have been without re suits. THE BRITISH ELECTIONS. Ministerialists Continue to be Returned With Increased Majorities. London, Oct. 3, 3.80 a.m. Yesterday's pollings in the parliamentary general election leave the state of parties at present as follows: Ministerialists 178, Liberals 85, Nationalists 19. Of the 232 seats thus disposed the ministerialists, or rather the conservatives, have gain ed 6, including Leicester, and the lib erals 7, including Gloucester, ' Grant ham, Northampton, Swansea town, Hastings and South Wolverhampton. Increased conservative majorities are especially noticeable in London and Lancanshlre. Almost all the Lnndon divisions were polled ?sterday. Isling ton, Clapham and Lambeth, show heavy unionist increases and the same may be said of Manchester, Sariford and Blackburn. The representation of Manchester is not changed in any of the five districts but all the conservative candidates secured big majorities. On the other hand the liberal majority for Mr. Chas. Ernest Schwann, in the north division of Manchester was reduced from 455, the figures of 1S95 to 26. So far from Mr. Henry Labouchere losing his seat in consequence of his correspondence with Mr.Kruger, North hampton, is now represented by two liberals. Mr. Labouchere, however, did not head the poll, although he secured a heavy vote. Dr. Shlpnpn, who received the great est number of votes cast is a liberal imperialist. The total liberal vote in Northampton was slightly decreased, and the total unionist vote Increased. A few Scottish constituencies have been polled. All show that the liberals (are holding their own in Scotland. ' Among the interesting new liberal members is Mr. Henry Norman, of the London Daily Chronicle, who was elected member for Wolverhampton, receiving 3,701 ..votes, as against 3,532 cast for Mr. Hulton, liberal unionist. The announcement of Mr. Burns re turn was received with the wildest en thusiasm in Battersea. The leading thoroughfare for a mile was filled with a mob shouting themselves hoarse for Burns, who appeared and acknowl edged the ovation from the balcony of the town hall. A large force of mount ed police atended, but there was no dis order. Quirt at Georgetown. Columbia, S. C, Oct. 2. Gov. Mc Sweeney was advised to-day that all is quiet at Georgetown.

The (agreement will be on tha U.la r.t hn rvr noln f laiQ QCIWU uj Secretary Hay In hie note of July 3, and the subsequent notes treating of that subject. The accord of Russia with the United States la mora complete than was indicated at first, and the re ports show that all of the European na tions probably are placing themselves in position to take advantage of the opening made by the unueo. bimbu, noon will be ready to begin negoti ations for a settlement with the Chi nese government. The Russians al ready have given notice of such pur pose, and while the text of tne t rencn note on this subject referred to in to day's press dispatches has not reached the state department, the officials are satisfied that this is correctly reported and that France, like Russia, Is ready to negotlute at once. As for Germany, either the position of that government has been misunder stood or it has sustained a change of mind. Possibly the former Is the cae, but, however that may be, it is quite certain from the advices which have reached Washington to-day that the German government upon careful in spection of the plans for a settlement projected by the United States, finds therein nothing inconsistent with the German aspirations. Therefore it may be expected that Germany, too, will be preparod soon to join in this common movement toward a settlement. It may bo stated that, altogether, the prospects of an adjustment of the Chi nese difficulty without resort to formal war are very much-brighter than they were one week ago. The news development of ths day were few, confined to a cable from Mr. Conger reoitlng the departure of the Russian minister and suite from Pe kin, and an authentication by Minister Wu of the promised punishment of Prince Tuan and others. EMPEROR WILLIAM'S ANSWER. Hcply to Chinese Emperor's Condolences - Punishment of the Guilty. Berlin, Oct. 2. The following is the emperor's message to Emperor William of Germany: Greeting: That your majesty's min ister has fallen a victim to the rising which suddenly broke out In .Chirm without our officials being able to pre vent It, and by It our friendly relations disturbed, is deeply deplored and re gretted. By decree we order that a sacrifice be made on an altar. for the deceased, and Chief Secretary Kun Yang has been Instructed to pour liba tions on the altar. The commercial su perintendents of the northern and southern ports have been ordered to take the needful measures concerning the conveyance of the remains of the deceased. When the body reaches Germany a second offering shall be made on an altar. "Germany has always maintained the. friendlieat relations with Chirm. We therefore entertain the hope that your (majesty will renounce all resentment, so that peace may b arranged as soon as possible and that universal harmo ny be rendered possible for all time. This is 'our most anxious hope and our most ardent wish." Emperor William replied, September 30, as follows: "To the Emperor of China: I, the German emperor, have re ceived the telegram of your majesty, the emperor of China, I have observed with satisfaction that your majesty is anxious to expiate, according to the custom and precept of your religion, the shameful murder of my minister, which set at naught all civilization. Yet as the German emperor and a Christian, I cannot regard that abomin able crime as atoned for by a libation. Besides my murdered minister, there have gone before the throne of God a large number of our brethren of the Christian faith, bishops and missiona ries, women and children, who for the sake of their faith, which is also mine, have died the violent death of martyrs, and are aocusers of your majesty. Do the libations commanded by your ma jesty suffice for all these Innocent ones? I do not make your majesty personally responsible for the outrage against the legations, which are held Inviolable among all nations, nor for the grievous wrongs done so many notions and faiths and to the subjects of your ma jesty of my Christian belief. But the advisers of your majesty's throne and the officials on whose heads rests the blood, guilty of a crime which fills all Christian nations with horror, must ex piate their abominable deed. WhPn your majesty brings them to the purs lshment they have deserved, that I will regard as an expiation which will sat isfy the nations of Christendom. "Tf your mnlwtv will use your im perial power for this purpose accepting to thatend the support of all the In jured nations I, for my part, declare myself agreed on that point. I should also gladly welcome the return of your majesty to Pekln. For this, my gen eral, Field Marshal Von Waldersee, will' be instructed not only to receive your majesty with the honors due your rank, but he will also afford your majesty the military protection you may desire and which you may need against the rebels. "I also Jong for peace which atones for the guilt which makes good wrongs done and which offers to all foreigners in China security for life and property, and above all. for the free service of (their religion.

Yes terday afternoon about one o'clock the negro, a nephew of the negro Floyd, who was hung in the Wetumpka jail the week before laat, attempted to out rage Mr3. Harrington. The woman's screams were heard by another negro named Nichols, who was passing along the road at the time. He ran to tne Viniioo nnd na.w the negro escape. As eoon as Mrs. Harrington was brought back to consciousness Nichols gave tne Jalarm. The news spread rapidly. All tne stores in Eclectic were cloeed, all the gins and saw mills shut down, the peo ple left their wagons In the road and their plows in the field ana gatnerea for a pursuit of the negro. The crowd divided, soma soourlng the woods near the scene of the crime and others went to the penitentiary for hioiirlhoiinds. The dogs were not brought to the scene until nearly dark. They were taken to where the negro e trnrWH dlsaimeared and ar exciting chase ensued. The dogs stopped at the outskirts of the town. Tne crowa com ing up soon discovered the negro sitting nn n limb. He was brought down at once and taken to the scene of his crime. There he was confronted by his victim, who positively identified him.
