HEARING A CRISIS Strike Question Passed Up to President Mitchell FAVORS A SETTLEMENT Some of His Advisers Though Are De manding Still Better Terms From the Operators Who Intimate That it Will Be a Long Time Before They Will Extend the Concession. A Labor Demonstration. Wilkesbarre, Pa., Oct. 3. A crisis in the coal miners' strike seems to be ap proaching. A well known operator here said yesterday that there was an un derstanding at a meeting of represen tatives of the companies and individual operators in this city last Tuesday. Ac cording to the understanding notices of an increase -of wages were not to he ported at the sarnie time, but gradually. Thl part of the programme has now been carried out. The companies and nearly all the operators are in line for a 10 per cent increase. It is now up to President Mitchell to decide what he is going to do in the matter. If he delays action with tlv; Idea in view that the operators will make a better offer he is liable to delay the strike indefinitely. An analysis of the 10 per cent in crease offered shows that the average miner's wages would not be1 increased fully 10 per cent, but it is urged that it is better than nothing; that it is a victory after all for the strikers, that it is the entering wedge and that if the United Mine Workers keep their or ganization intact they can compel oper ators to make further concessions in years to come. ' It is said that President Mitchell takes this view of the situation himself. It is known, however, that some of President Mitchell's advisers are against a settlement on a 10 per cent basis. BEGINNING OF THE END. Philadelphia, Oct. 3 Today's decision of the Individual coal operators to or der a 10 per cent increase In wages to the striking mine workers is regarded throughout the anthracite region as the beginning of the end of the strike. Nearly all the individual operators to day made announcements of their wil lingness to grant the increase, and no tices to this effect will, it is expected, be posted at the various independent collieries tomorrow. Some have already been posted. It is fully believed that the few operators who have not yet expressed their intention on the sub ject will fall in line with the others and grant the increase. According to some of the operators, powder will be sold to the miners at tl.50 per keg instead of J2.73 as hereto fore charged, but this reduction will be taken into consideration in figuring the net 10 per cent advance. No other concessions to the strikers are hinted at. DENIAL BY MITCHELL. Hazleton, Pa.. Oct. 5. President Mitchell was today shown a statement that 'the anthracite miners' strike was arranged by ihimwelf. Mr. Johnson of the national democratic committee, and May or Taggart of Indianapolis. He said he did not know Johnson, never ilmd a conversation with him or Tag eart in his life and that 'the story was utterly without foundation. THE WHISTLE BLEW IN VAIN. Shatnokin. Pa., ( t. 3.

St. Louis, Mo., Oct. 5. Arrangements were completed today for the annual meeting here next week of the Ameri can Board of Commissioners for For eign Missions, which is the missionary board of the Congregational church. As the American board is the first mission ary society to meet since the troubles in China began, its sessions will be at tended with especial interest, as many facts relating to the missionary work In China and its' relation to the present uprising will be brought out. The Congregational missions have suffered considerably at the hands of the Chinese Boxers. The question of continuing the work in the disturbed districts will engage the attention of next week's meeting, but according to the opinions expressed by leading mem bers of the board there Is little doubt that the work will be more than tem porarily suspended. Matters pertaining to the work in Japan, Turkey, India and other foreign fields and the work In the heme department of the board will also come up for discussion and action. The meeting will open Wed nesday afternoon In the Congregation al church and will continue through the rest of the week. THE CANBERRY CROP. Many Turkeys Will Have to go With out Sauce This Year. New York, Oct. a. According to the reports received by commission men in this city cranberry sauce for Thanks giving turkey will be costly. The New Jersey crop of the berry is reported shorter than for many years past. Bogs which last year produced 23.000 bushels have yielded this year lint 9.000 bushels. In small bogs in Burlington county, where more cranberries are pioduced than In any other section of the coun try, the crops average less than half the usual yield. As a consequence the growers are already preparing to boost prices in proportion to the shortage of their crops and the indications are that cranberry sauce will be scarcer on the dinner table this winter than for many years past. IH HEED OF REST Governor Roosevelt Wearied By His Campaign. Rock IslanJ, III., Oct. 5. "Governor Roosevelt, who spoke in this city and Davenport. Ia., lu.t night, 'thus closing another day of hard campaigning, is beginning to feel the effects of the ar duous work undertaken by him at the request of the republican managers.

Effects of Good Crops Protection an Issue Unpopularity of Demo cratic Programme Immediate Profits of Expansion. Portland, Ore.. Oct. 5. Oregon will give her vote to the republican national ticket by a liberal majority. The demo crats admit the loss of the state, and the republicans are expecting a heav ier vote for .President AleKinley than was given him in Having 'held her state and congressional elections, the nly question of interest in the po litical Held is that Senator MeBride's term expires the 4lh tf next March, and when the legislature meets next winter in will elfher re-elect McBride or choose some one else for the position. Senator McBride is a candidate for re election, but is not the strongest ean didate in the field. T. W. Corbett ap-pe-ars to be in the lead, though ex Senatoc John Mitchell also eltsires to return to Washington. Out of the total of "tr.,000 votes given the national tickets in 1S9IJ President McKinley received a plurality of 2.117. This would make it appear nhat Oregon was a elese slate, but the republicans have very good ground for the belief that the republican majority will be very much larger this year in the gen erally prosperous condition of the ritate and the apparent widespread sat isfaction which prevails under the present foreign policy of the national administration. There is general lack of interest in poli'.ics, but this seems due more to a belief that the results of the November election are a fore gone conclusion than to any real in difference to the issues at flake. The agricultural, live stock and lumber in terests of Oregon arc most prosperous, antl this is believed to :e due more to national policies than to any chance of the seasons. The people of Oregon are expansionists, and if the issue was in their opinion, in danger of being close ly contested they would become thor oughly aroused and make a strong fight for what they consider a national policy of great benefit -to the entire Pa cific coast. The protection Issue is very much alive in Oregon, on account of the heavy wool and lumber Industries. The sheepmen four years ttgo were getting from 6 cents to S cents a pound for their wool, and hail a very slow market at that: they are n jw getting 14 cents to 17 cents a pound, w'nh a ready salt, and the price of shet p has risen pro portionately. Situated so close to the great forests of the British-American coast, the duty of a thousand feet on lumber enables the Puget Sound lumberman to do business on a better margin of profit than he would were he not thus protected. The wheat crop this year has been exceptionally good, and prices have ad vanced over those which have prevailed for some time past: 1S99 wheat selling for C3- certs a bushel, and the wheat of the new crop bringing 30 c-nts, which is considered a very good price. This increase in price is lue to the1 greater demand for export, which 'de mand is believed by the ieople do spring from the present aggressive for eign policy of the republican party. There has been considerable discus sion among the Oregon farmers re cently as to the cost of raising a bush el of wheat in this state. While all such estimates can be only approxi mate, owing to varying soils and con ditions, they are interesting as show ing the difference in 'the cost of eqiera ting a farm on the Pacific coa-st as com pared with" the cost of such operation in the middle west. It may be said also that this comparison will apply 'to nearly every other intlustry as we-ll as that of farming. It has been estimated that an aver age yield of wheat irt Kansas i-extsts the fanner from 23 to 30 cents a bushel to put it on the market. The Oregon farmers estimate it costs them very lit'ile less than 43 cents a bushel to raise their wheat, anil that at the prices w hich pi t vail there is little or no profit ill the business. The Oregor wheat raiser cannot st ml his product cast of the Rockies, for he meets there mp competition of the gnat wneat fields of the middle west, after having paid the heavy transit charges -across the mountain divisions of the trans-continental roads. His only market is that afforded by the export trade from the Pacific ports, in oil lltion to such local cousumpt ion as there is. As u -ons. -quence, the1 price of wheat on the Pacific coast is- never as high as it is cast of the mountains, and ac cording to the statement of the Oregon farmers it costs more to produce it. In i-ipeaking of -the necessities of the grain interests of the Pacific coast S. Osborne, one of the laigtst wheat rais ers of the Palouse country, said today: "When the interstate commerce com mission met to inquire into i he farmers' complaint against an eastern freight rate of $14 a ton on wheat it was proved that grain even under-the mo-sit favor able conditions could not be raised in Oregon for less than 43c a bushel. The wheat raisers of various districts hav ing no chance to make a comparison, gave these figures to the members of the commission and convinced .them that the farmers could not 'ship cast so long as the freight was $14 a ton "With a rate of ;." cents a bushel to Chicago or Duluth. which 'the Walla Walla chamber of commerce asketl of the Northern Pacific, the farmers could sell at a profit by receiving 73 cents per bushel in eitht r of those markets. With the present tae ot 50 een'ts per bushel to those points and the cost of 40 cents for raising the grain, it meant $1 per bushel before a profit ,cao be realized." The farmers as well as the mer chants' who have profited by Iho in creased business with the orient elur ing the past two years are slow to stampede at the dangers of imperial ism as set forth by the democrats. Every city in Oregon has shown a most remarkable and satisfactory growth during the past ten years. Portland has increased her population over 'JO per cent and the city has since the last census changed from a crude set tlement into a well buil' and substan tial metropolis. Other principal cities In the state have prospered tand grown In almost equal proportion. It would be difficult to imagine a mors unpopular political programme fof the people of the Puget Sound country than the one which is being advocated by the democrats in their campaign in tivi eastern states. The politicians an? chary of laying too much stress upon the ami-expansion plank when they are campaigning in Washington and Oregon. Regardless of whether a pol icy of expansion and foreign assimila tion is moral or not. it has at least the temporary effect of stimulating every branch of trade upon 'the Pacific coast of the United States, the natural point of debarkation for all oriental coun tries. The coming and going .of troops, the purchasing of supplies, the absorption of all surplus 'transport ves.sels, the furnishing of outfits for hundreds of private adventurers and a general in crease in the consumption of American goods, which has resulted from Amer ican occupation of foreign ports, has put new life into this country, which four years ago was in the depths of commercial depression. The eople are imphtient of argument as to where this may all lead, or as to whether it is constitutional or not. They have in their banks antl tills tangible evidence of the immediate profit which has re sulted, and that is as far us they care to go jut', at present in a disvussion of the merits or demerits e toe entrance of the United States into he affairs of foreign people.

In a glass case, framed in boards tak en from the Hour of the Lincoln home, the Univtrsity of Illinois cheri-iacs a memento of the great emancipator, ia the shape of an ox-yoke made! by Lin celu. A peculiar ltuture of ii-. crest in eonnecti'on with the relic is the fact that the identity of the original owner of the yoke has just been learned. Some time ago M; Watson Pickrell, a resident now of Tempe, this territory, but formerly residing at Springfield. III., and a graduate of the University of Illinois in the class of 1.X73, learned that the faculty of '.he school had long been engaged in an effort to locate the presentor of the yoke-, antl at once wrote to President A. S. Draper, unify ing him that he had given the yoke to the school and making a sworn affida vit to that effect. In his sta oment Mr. Pickrell says ill part: "that in the year 173 he presented the ox-yoke to llv university, and that his knowledge that the yoke was made by Mr. Lincoln is base d on tilt! fallowing facts, namely: That the- yoke was given him by one C M. Smith, late of the city of Spring fit Id: thai Mr. Smith in a brol'aer-iu-low of Mr. Lincoln, an. I a man of oigii repute: '.hat Mr. Smii.li state 1 t him that very soon after Mr. Liu.'olii re turned to Springfield after his term in congress, Mr. Lincoln and he (Smith visi'ifd together near New S.ilem, III., where Mr. Lincoln once lived: that while there th.'y attt n letl an auction of farm chatties, among which was the yoke: that the yoke was announcitl a: the auction as having been male by Mr. Lincoln and that the aunouncmen; was acknowledge-.! by the latter as true; tf.iat it was lc jk.'tl upon and talk ed about as a curiosity because mad" by a congress-man: that Mr. Smith bi-1 of;' the yoke anil retained it until he gave- it to the deponeir:: that Mr. Smith also stated to deponent that at the time of buying the yoke he hatl n i ihougiit that Mr. Lincoln would ever become president, but that he thought tho yoke was worth buying and keeping as a souvenir because made by his bn L'hcr-in-law and former member cf con gress." In a letter to Mr. Pickrell T. J. Bur rill, dean of general faculty and of graduate school at the university, says "Your information icgarding the yoke was botih a surprise and a deligh-t to me. I had erne belief fully settled in my mind, anil that was that a cm' ':'! trustee brought Ihe yoke and presented it to Dr. Gregory as regent -of the Uni versity. I have made inquiries during the past ten years, everywhere I could iliink of, -but without avail." THE COCONINO PLAN Both Wilson and Smith Are . Pulled Off (Neither Will Be Allowed to Speak in Flagstaff This Campaign The Colonel Was Sent to the Next Town. Flagstaff. Ariz., Oct. 3. (Special). -The democratic central committee re fused to allow Colonel Wilson to speak ' and the members say that Smith will I not be permitted to talk here. Wilson ! left for Winslow on the first train, to speak there tomorrow night. This is the home of E. E. Ellmwood, chairman of the central committee of the half of the territorial convention which nominated Smith. The democrats of this county blame both Smith and Wilson for the tangle in which the party finds itself, though a majority of them were originally fa vorable to Wilson. They say that a movement is being started extending throughout the whole territory for the removal of both parties from the ticket. Though it is late in the campaign they believe a democrat can be found who can be elected. They are certain that neither Smith nor Wilson can if thy both run and they do not be.lieve that either of them would be much stronger if the other should withdraw. The action of the committee was a surprise to Colonel Wilson and his friends here and no less to the friends of Smith. It shows that the democrats of Coconino are not merely neutral in the Smith-Wilson fight, but are actively hostile to both of them. l0-NIGHT'S MASS MEETING A Demonstration Which Will Be Worth Going to See.

It may be aid thai 'tho key-note of the cam paign will be sounded temicrht -and the 1 real opening will be made Governor Murphy returned this m li n ing from a -hurried, but very successful j visit to tive northern counties. Beside : the governor, the speakers will be Col. I William Herring of Tucson, Captain G. D. Christy und Col. M. H. MeCord. I Two bands will be in atten.lanee and, , in fact, all arrangements for a rousing and most successful meeting have been made. (Jove in or Murphy will leave tomor row nigh'i for a tour of the southern counties and with others will address a meeting at Tucson on Monday night. The re-publican county campaign is moving along nicely. There were meet ings last night a-t Mesa and Cartwright. The candidates are well received wherever they go and are all confident of success a month from today. SETTLED DOWN John Owens of Sacaton Married and Engaged in Farming. John Owens is probably the best known among the whites of any native on the Pima reservation. His father was a white man, who tlied many years ago, ami his mother was a Pima. John was sent to school at an early age, in fact was one of the first of the native children in this part of the country to be educated. He was an apt sludolit antl in due time was given employment in the Indian service in various posi tions. He talks English fluently und has often been sent out to persuade the native children to attend school. For many years he was employed at the Alburtuertue school and later at the; Phoenix Indian school. He returned to Sacaton last June from the school at Puyallup, Wash., where for a year previous he was e-m-ployed as industrial teacher. He says the Sound country is too we t for him and his fe-et gave no signs of webbing, so he returned to Arizona, which bett-r suits his taste, resolved to settle down to the peaceful life of a farmer. On August 13 he was married to Elizabeth Browning, a full-blooded Pima Indian., but a well educated young woman who was in the Indian service for a number of years. Mr. antl Mrs. Owens have a comfort able house, a good team and farming implements in the vicinity of Sacaton and good prospects of a prosperous fu ture. Mr. Owens was in Phoenix yesterday and when questioned regarding the condition of the Indians on the reserva tion he said that it was very bad. There are about X.iioo on the reservation and 3.0IM) of them are practically able as yet to take e-are of themselves, but li.OOO are really suffering from the effects of the drouth. He said that the usual grain crop of the reservation Indians was about 6,00O.tl0n jHiunds, but during the past season it only amounted to 300,000 pounds. That in itself is explanatory. Nearly all the Indians need help for present necessities anel imany of them have absolutely nothing to live on except the small government rations doled out, consisting of wheat ami flour. In the neighborhood of Blackwater, above Sacaton,' the eoneli tion is almost one of starvation.' I The Indians, however, are hopeful of next season and will put in a gooei crop this fall. There is plenty of water in the river at the present time but they are discouraged and fearful that this season's drouth may be repeated again next year. Asked about the new irri gating scheme south, of the Maricopa mountains, by whie-h the underflow of the Gila is to be piped to the basin of a high water lake. Mr. Owens said that the Indian boys are working on the en terpi ise as fast as they can and hope it will be completed by next spring. THE ENDEAVORERS. The Opening Session of the Illinois Branch. OIney, 111., Oct. 5. An exchange of congratulations on the large attendance was in order this morning when the state Christian Endeavor association assembled for Its first business session.

Joe Gans gtrt a de cision over George Young in the tenth round. A YOUNG MAN FROM TEXAS He Tries to Negotiate Unnegotiahle Paper. Early yesterday morning a young man by the name of Harry E. Lawton was gathered in by Officers Hale and Sullivan for vagrancy. Lawton, who came to town last Monday, attracted attention to himself the next day by being caught in the act of investigating a trunk in the room of William Clem man's in the Wharton building. Law ton explained his presence, but not his occupation, by saying that he was hunting a place where he could wash his faee. A description of him was ' given to the police and some time after ' midnight he was observed by the of ficers trying to negotiate a cheek on the Phoenix National bank. The check was for $-6, was signed by Lawton, made payable to himself and his name was written in red ink across the face as payee; There was written in one corner, for the further information of tlte public "for sales em commission." He offered the check for $1, or what ever he could get for it, and agreed to take it out in drinks. When he was brought into polite court he admitted his worthlcssness and his presence in Clemman's room. He said he had worked on Thurselay. "Who?" Inquired the recorder. At first Lawton saitl the e heck had been given to him but being pinned elown, he con fessed that he had drawn it himself. He offered in extenuation themgh that he had not tried to negotiate it for any thing but liquor. "Why," said he, "a man wouol be a fool to take that kind of a check from a stranger." "A man is a fool who will' make that kind of a check." said Officer Hale. After having tried to lie himself out of a bad hole, all the time getting in de--)cr, ltwtoii 'began to plead for mercy and cry. He promised that he would never drink iiny more, never in this world, if he were permitted to go this time. He was not turned loose on the com munity. Lawton. is one of those fellows who parts his hair in the middle and turns it up in sweet little curlicues in front of his ears. That style is not un becoming to some young men, but the some are ex.-eeeiingly few, Lawltin was not one of the few. His appearance alone would have justified his holding to the grand jury on almost any charge that might have suggested itself to the arresting officer. .

A large number of football enthusi asts last night at the board of trade rooms and took the Initial steps toward the formation of a local football association. A temjiorary organization was effee-ted and a permanent associa tion will be completed at a meetins to be held Monday night. Over half a hundred players were represented at the meeting and displayed a spirit of enthusiasm which can hardly do else than put life enough Into a team pro duce the best eleven in the territory. Mr. L. R. Kruger was chosen tempor ary chairman and Mr. Irving Andrews acted as secretary. Committees wer appointed on organization and member, ship, and it is believed that a list of several hundred members will be se cured. It is intended to invite a num ber of citizens who do not play but who are admirers eif the game, to become niembe-rs of the assoeiation and thus arouse interest that might otherwise lie dormant.
