Governor
Odell Says the End
Come This Week
Commissioner Wright Also Hints That Mysterious Forces
Are at Work in New York Wd Elsewhere Which
May Bring Peace A Suggestion That the Opera
tors May Concede a Five Cent Raise and Split the
Question of Recognition of the United Mine Work
ers' Organization.
New York, October 13. No settlement
of the strike in the anthracite coal re
gions has been reached and, according
to a statement by three leading opera
tors, no reasonable basis has yet been
suggested to them. Any proposition
embracing a 10 per cent increase will
be ignored. It was another busy day
for the operators. . Before noon all of
them with President Baer were in con
ference in the office of the Erie road.
Their talk lasted over an hour, but no
statement was made for publication.
Following the conference Chairman
Thomas of the Erie road and President
Truesdale of the Lackawanna were
closeted with J. P. Morgan'at the lat
ter's office. Morgan would not talk
about the situation, nor would he say
anything regarding Secretary Root's
visit to him last Saturday.
In spite of countless reports to the
contrary, there was the best authority
for stating that Mr. Morgan has up to
this time taken no active part in any
settlement negotiations. He believes
the matter rests with tho coal presi
dents, and he is reported to have said,
as much to President Roosevelt through
Secretary Root last Saturday.
Governor Odell made this significant
remark at the Fifth Avenue hotel to
night: "I believe the coal strike nearer a
definite settlement than it has been
since it started."
The governor would make no explan
ation of his reasons for his belief fur
ther than to say:
"In my opinion this week will see an
end of It."
Although no definite information can
be obtained, it is believed that Gov
ernor Odell was this morning in- con
ference with both J. P. Morgan and
President Baer, to the latter of whom
he so forcibly outlined his position on
Friday. It is furthermore the opinion
that Odell's recommendation of 5 cents
per ton increase for miners and a recog
nition of the union: will be the basis o
settlement, although the latter may be
avoided in part by asking the men to
come back to work at the advanced
prices without any agreement that they
must leave their organization, but
without any stipulation that the union
will be recognized as a body.
VERY LITTLE PROGRESS
Was Made in
the Breaking of .th'.
Strike.
Wilkesbarre, Pa., October 13. What
was looked upon as an important day
in the matter of the resumption of work
in the coal mines passed without seri
ous trouble, and each side to the con
troversy is claiming a victory. Reports
received here from the coal camps all
over the region are to the effect that at
least twelve collieries and four wash
eries started operation" today. Presi
dent Mitchell in a talk with a corre
spondent asserted that the reports re
ceived by him from his lieutenants in
the field showed fewer men at work
today than last week.
It is quite evident that extra efforts
were made on both sides to gain an ad
vantage. The soldiers of the Third brigade
were sent into the outlying mining
towns in this region long before start-lng-up
time to patrol the roads leading
to the collieries. In some places tho
soldiers were scattered in twos and
threes along th3 streets and on street
corners, but they were not compelled to
rescue any one from the strikers.
The company superintendents are
authority for the statement that for th
past two days the mine workers have
been again making -a house to house
canvass all over the entire territory,
holding the men in line, and if it were
not for this method of keeping the men
i from work there would have been a
large Increase in the number of em
ployes at work. One superintendent in
speaking of the situation as it exists
today said: "The number who returned
to work today was not very large, but
the movement in that direction is grati
fying. The companies did not make a
great effort to break the ranks of the
strikers, preferring to wait until th
New York conference was over. They
have held out false hopes to the men,
and as soon as they are over the men
will see that there is no use to hold
out any longer and will be glad to re
sume work."
In an interview tonight President
Mitchell summed up the general situa
tion as follows:
"I heard from every point in the coal
region today and my information is to
the effect that fewer men are at work
today than there were last week. The
report that twelve collieries resumed
operations is not true."
SOME HOPE IN WASHINGTON.
Washington, October 13. Nothing has
been done about the coal strike in
Washington today, and it Is believed
IN NEW YO
May
j that further appeals on either side by
the president will be fruitless. No doubt
some recommendation by the president
will be contained in his annual message
to congress. By that time he will have
further information on the situation,
which will be gathered by Carroll D.
Wright, commissioner of labor, and
such other men as may be designated
to assist him in ascertaining the actual
situation in the mining regions.
While there is nothing tangible in
sight here, it is said that the possibility
of the strike being settled by forces at
work in New York and elsewhere. It
is understood that a powerful influence
is being exerted to this end.
OPERATORS WEAKEN
To the Exten of Asking for a Commis
sion to Adjust Things.
Washington, October 13. By the au
thority of J. P. Morgan, who, with his
partner, Robert Bacon, and Secretary
Root were in conference with President
Roosevelt at the temporary White
House tonight for an hour and a half,
a statement was presented in which the
presidents of the coal carrying railroads
and mine operators propose a commis
sion of five persons to adjust tha differ
ences and settle the coal strike in the
anthracite ccal fields of Pennsylvania.
The preposition is believed by the ad
ministration to be satisfactory to mln
ers, as it covers the proposition made
by President - Mitchell of the United
Mine Workers' union with additional
conditions which it is believed the min
ers will accept.
J. P. Morgan came to Washington
with his partner, Mr. Bacen, at the re
quest of the coal companies, who de
sired that as a matter of courtesy their
statement should be shown to the presi
dent before it was made public.
' LOSS OF THE SWISS TRADE.
Captured by American Operators at
Great Expense.
London. October 13. At a meeting
of the Rhonda Valley Miners' Federa
tion, it was voted unanimously to ask
the executive council of the South
Wales Miners' Federation to grant the
Ftriking coal miners in the United
States of America a much larger dona
tion than the $5,000 recently dispatched
them by the South Wales Federation.
This sum is declared to be totally in
adequate. Speeches were made at the
meeting praising the American miners
for holding out for arbitration. One
speaker said the use of the truck, sys
tem in the boasted land of freedom
could hardly be credited in Welsh
In a dispatch from Vienna the cor
respondent of the Daily Chronicle says
the crisis of the coal strike in America
threatens Americans with a loss of
their Swiss coal trads, which they ob
tained after a severe struggle and at
great expense as a result of the ex
haustion of American stocks of coal
In Europe and a consequent rise in
prices. The Germans are now booking
In Switzerland large orders for West
phalia coal, says the correspondent,
and they are likely to recapture the
trade from American dealers. The in
crease in the price oz coai is caubmg
great distress in Switzerland.
SITUATION AT READING.
Reading. Pa.. October 13. Not a ton
of coal passed down the Reading rail
road since the shipments of Saturday
night last, but officials say that tonight
several trains " ill be moved. Before
the strike Sunday shipmer.t3 were al
ways the heaviest.
HE SHOT TOO QUICK.
Shenandoah. Pa., October 13. The
coroner's jury in the case of William
Durham, who was shot and killed
Wednesday night last by Private Ar
thur Wadsworth of the Eighteenth
regiment, N. G. P., tcday returned a
verdict placing the responsibility for
his death upon Wadsworth, expressing
the belief that the shooting wa3 hasty
and tin justifiable, and recommending
that the matter be placed in the hands
of the district attorney for investiga
tion. ALL IN THE TELLING
The Eelation of a Story of Runa
way Horse.
The chief interest of many stories
lies all in the telling. An important
incident may . be made ridiculous and
a sad one converted into a humorous
one without the addition of any new
facts. It is all done by- the magic of
the narrator.
For instance, a few days ago the
horse of Chief Justice Kent ran away
and destroyed a costly pneumatic tired
RK
buggy. The runaway was little differ
ent from dozens that occur in Phoenix
every year. The horse merely took
fright, placed himself beyond the con
trol of the- driver, and before he could
be captured ho made it necessary for
the buggy to be sent back to the fac
tory for reassembling, for the repair of
it was beyond local skill. Yesterday a
little girl, a neighbor and a witness of
the incident, told a reporter for The
Republican about It. She is about ten
years old, singularly precise of expres
sion and with an animated face which
lends additional eloquence to her nar
ration. What she told was not a contribution
cf any new information regarding the
disaster, but her way of telling it made
the affair appear less like a tragedy
than it must have seemed to Judge
Kent while it was happening. Her
story is reproduced as an example of
the art of story telling.
Said she: "Mr. Kent drove up to his
house across the street from us and
went to water his horse. He must be a
very kind gentleman for he took the
bridle out of the horse's mouth so it
could drink easier. The, horse looked
back over his shoulders, for the blinds
were off of him. and he saw the buggy.
He acted as if he had never seen it be
fore and he began to disappear. The
driver said it was done so quick that
they did not see which way he went,
and they were standing right by him
when he started.
"The horse ran across the street into
J our yard ana ne Dumpeu me uuBh
against everything ne couia mm.
littered our yard all up with pieces of
the harness. The buggy was a total
wreck. The seat was in one place anu
the bed was turned upside down in an
other. Those cute little steel spokes'
were scattered around everywhere and
the steel rimmed wheels were twisted
till they looked like sick snakes.
"When Mr. Kent and tha driver found
out where the horse had gone they
came over after it. The driver began
picking up the pieces of the buggy.
ntn he fare" to the bed which was
turned upside own he turned it right
side up. Mr. Kent s.Md to him: 'Han-
it r "tight scratch
some of the paint off.' "
TO FIFE
A TEXtS NEGRO
In the Company of a Sheriff Stir
rounded by a Mob.
Nacogdoches, Tex., October 13. Jim
Buchanan, a negro, has been arrested
charged with the murder of Duncan
Hicks, his wife and daughter. Sheriff
Spradley and his prisoner and a sheriff's
posse are surrounded at Tenaha, where
the streets are full of men.
According to his confession the negro
subjected Mrs. Hicks to indignities ami
kilted her with a target rifle barrel,
after beating her into insensibility. H'
drove the end of a barrel into her head
through one of her eyes. There is an
exDresserl determination to burn the
prisoner if he can be secured.
The sheriff tried to get a messenger
through to the governor telling him of
the situation and asking him for troops,
but the messenger was interrupted.
The mob at a late hour tonight is try
ing to persuade the sheriff to surrender
his prisoner without bloodshed, but he
refused to do so. Sheriff Borders of
San Augustin county has joined Sheriff
Spradley, and they expect to try and
mcve forward shortly.
FINNISH OBJECTION
To the Russianizing of That Part of
the Empire.
St. Petersburg. October 13. Several
members of the Finnish court of ap
peals have been removed because they
opposed the application of the new
military conscription law in their juris
dictions. ' '
The members of the diet representing
the rural population are preparing to
present to the authorities at St. Peters
burg through the land marshal, who is
president of the diet, a petition in be
half of the entire Finnish people for a
limitation of the imperial manifestos
relating to Finnish laws and also for
the postponement or modification of the
introduction of the Russian language
in official procedure.
FOOLED HIM.
But in the Pleasant Ways of Peace.
Good thing some men are married
Their wives keep a sensible watch over
them, and have a way to help overcome
their troubles.
Mr. E. Lewis, of Shaniko, Ore., was
located for several years at various
points in South America, and fell into
the native custom of frequently drink-
ing.coffee. He says: "I took to using
it the same as those nervous, excitable
people in South and Central America.
They make very -black coffee and !t be
comes more or less an. intoxicating bev
erage. At the end of about four months,
I began having severe sick headaches
and nervousness, but supposed it was
frcm the tropical sun. At last my wife
became alarmed at my headaches and
rjtomach trouble. She tried to induce
me to quit drinking coffee, laying my
trouble to that, but I- continued to
use it.
She read of Postum Food Coffee, and
ordered some from the States, but kept
it a secret from me. The very first time
she made It, when I came in for my
coffee and roll, I noticed that peculiar,
pleasant flavor of Postum, and asked
her what it was. She said it was a new
brand of coffee and asked me how I
liked it. I tried two cups of it with
rich 'Leche-de-Cheua,' which is used by
everyone as milk in Panama, and
thought it excellent. After a coupie of
days, my headaches stopped, and in. a
rhort while my nervousness disap
peared as if by magic. I have been
using nothing but Postum for the past
year, and have been completely cured,
and my Wife has also been cured of
constipation bychanging to Postum,
land we shall never go back to
I again."

THE ENJOINING OF
TICKET SCALPERS
From Handling 6. J!. R. En
campmant Tickets
A Decision Holding That a Ticket
of That Kind in the Hands of
the Scalpers Is in Itself an Evi
dence of fraud.
Washington, October 13. A decision
of sweeping Importance to ticket scalp
ers and the railroad passenger busi
ness generally was delivered today by
Justice Hagner of the equity court of
the District of Columbia, who perma
nently enjoined thirty-three local ticket
brokers frcm selling Grand Army
special excursion tickets issued by the
Pennsylvania, Southern, Baltimore &
Ohio, and Chesapeake and Ohio rail
roads. The defense of the brokers .was that
they were pursuing a legally licensed
brokerage business, and that the rail
roads in combining in the establish
ment of a. Joint ticket agency here
during tha enctirpmont for the viseing
c return tickets, etc., .violated tha
Sherman anti-trust law. The ccji't
held that the tickets sold by the reads
on account of the grand army encamp
ment bore contracts figr.ed by thts
purchasers in the presence of witnesses
and were absolutely void when used by
any ether than the original purchaser.
They distinctly read that any one ex
eci'.t the original purchasers attempt
ing to use them would be subject to
prosecution for f;rgery. Th? contract
signed by the original purchaser is ab
folute, according to the court, and any
violation is a constituted fraud on
which the suit at bur for an injunction
was properly based. The court de
clared that the contention of the
complaining roads was te.iable.
As to the claim that the roads vio
lated the anti-trust law the court held
that a joint ticket agency could not
be considered in that light, as the
agency had nothing to do with the fix
ing of rates. Further, the defendants
hail rhown that they were violating the
law and could not press as a defense
the violation of law by ancthsr party.

OFFER OF COAL LANDS.
A Chance for the Governmer;t to Gd
Into Coal Mining.
New York, October 13. Another offer
of coal lands has been made to Presi
dent Roosevelt to relieve a possible
coal famine. Mrs. Josanna Cv Samuels
formerly of Nashville, Tenn., and
Washington, D. C, but who has been in
New York for several months organlz
inn a railroad and oher projects, has
written to President Roosevelt offering
him n tract of mining land in Ken
tucky, to be mined by the government
withcut compensation to the donor,
during the continuance of the strike
Mrs. Samuels said to a reporter today:
"I am making the offer simply be
cause the property is Idle. It is ni ex
pense to me at the present time, and I
would be at no loss if a quantity of the
coal is mired. I do not ask one cent
from the government or any favors,
will leave the arrangements of all de
tails entirely to the president and let
him do as he sees fit."
New York, October 13. Charles Bary
a lawyer, formerly of Chicago, and
whose office is given as the headquar
ters of a company claiming to control
a large area of coal lands in Virginia
Tennessee and Kentucky, has written to
President Roosevelt, offering the con
trol of these under any conditions the
president may suggest. Mr. Bary says.
however, that it will be necessary to
furnish the means for the development
of these coal fields, which hitherto
have not been worked to any apprecla
ble extent.

KID M'PARTLAND
SENT TO GRASS
An
Awful Blow in the Fit of the
Stomach Sid It
Buffalo, N. Y., October 13. Joe Gans,
the lightweight champion, had no
trouble in disposing of Kid McPartland
bc.ore the International Club at Fort
Uric, O-rr., -"tonight, knocking, the New'
Ycr'" out aftxr two minutes and
twenty-five seconds' fighting In the
fifth round. The blow that did the
business was a left hand hook to. the
pit of the stomach, the same blow
with which McPartland has won many
fights. McPartland writhed on the
floor while the referee counted ten sec
onds, but a few minutes later he fully
recovered.
Gans did not exert himself at any
stage, though at times he showed
flashes cf his speed when the men came
ti close quarters. He made McPart
land do the fighting, contenting him
self with blocking and looking for a
chance to land one decisive blow. He
Jrcpped Mac with a straight right to
the jaw in the third round, but the
kid stayed through. McPartland did
not land more than eight solid blows
during the entire time of the bout,
Gans smothering most of his leads be
fore they were fairly started. McPart
land virtually fought himself out in
four rounds. McPartland was r.ot in
the beFt of condition, but Gans was in
magnificent shape. Both weighed un
der 133 pounds.
MACEDONIAN SUCCESS.

have seized the mountain pass between
Melnik and Zerres.
SITUATION GROWN WORSE.
London, October 13. A dispatch to
the Daily Mail from Volo, Greece, says
twenty-two villages in Macedonia are in
complete revolt and half a battalion of
Tuikish troops has been annihilated by
the insurgents In Krezna defile.
This news, continues the dispatch,
emanates from sources which have
hitherto minimized the trouble. The
situation consequently appears to have
suddenly grown worse.

THE GANQIDAT
IN JOil
Confronted b; a
Holbrook
It Was One of the Rules of the Debate That Judgment
Should Not Be Rendered Until After the Election.
Mr. Morrison's Arguments in Favor of the Tariff,
. Labor and the General Policy of the Republican
Party Provoked Frequent Manifestation of the Sym
pathy of the Audience.
Holbrook, Ariz., Octoher 13 (Special).
Before a large audience, representing
the best and most thoughtful men of
Navajo county, Messrs. Morrison and
Wilson appeared in a joint discussion
on the territorial and national issues
of the present campaign. The discus
sion was marked on both sides by calm,
temperate argument, and both men
were in good condition for speaking.
Judge Sloan presided and announced
the rules for the debate and said that
the decision would be reserved until
after the 4th of November. Wilson
spoke first and referred to the basic
principle of equal rights to all, special
privileges to none, upon which, the gov
ernment was founded, and the depart
ure from which caused the formation
of parties. The violation of the rule
caused trusts, the great menace of pub
lic rights today. The democratic party
says: Destroy favorite legislation and
you will have overthrown the evil re
sults of trusts; push off the top rails of
the tariff, not to destroy trusts but to
regulate them so that they will not de
stroy you. The democratic party was
converted to labor legislation when or
ganized labor demanded it. The re
publican party is not yet converted."
Wilson closed by claiming the credit
for the bill taxing the Santa Fe rail
roads passed after he left congress.
Morrison followed in an eloquent and
strong declaration of the republican
policy and principles, and showed that
the basic principles of the government
were first violated by the democrats in
enslaving negroes. The republicans
righted that, then declared that white
slave labor should not exist and formed
a protective tariff. "We will take care,"
not be enough. There was only one
day more for registration, and Mr.
Drane set out at once, accompanied by
Seth Eyers. who is something of a dam-
ocratic enthusiast himself. The Martin
residence is in the southwestern part
of town, about two miles from the post
effice. They arrived there at sundown.
Mr. Eyers held the horse and Mr.
Drane went in to recruit the demo
cratic paity.
When he entered the house it was
filled with women, but there were no
voters in sight. He said that he had
been told that a democrat.' a relative
of Mr. Martin, was there and wanted
to be registered. An old lady corrob
orated the rumor with reference to the
politics of the lately arrived relative cf
Mr. Martin, and -she went into an
other room. Mr. Drane supposed, to
tell the democrat that the registration
list was waiting for h!m. She re
turned with a bundle in her arms and
said to Mr. Drane. "Here he is." He
.vas a very red infant less than twenty
four hours old. His color matched
that of the registration c-JKcer. whose
democracy has never been questioned.
When Mr. Drane recovered the use of
his vocal powers he said, "He's too
dam little." His embarrassment was
not relieved by the shrieking women,
who had been told that a registration
officer was coming to register the baby
and they (gathered from the whole
neighborhood.
Messrs. Drane and Byers drove back
in silence. After thev had traveled a
half dozen blocks, Mr. Byers said:
"Drane, do you think anybody in that
neighborhood knows -who you are? I
don't believe they know me."

said he, "of our own pecple and 1ft th"
rest of the world take care of itself."
He compared the period of 1S3 to
1SS7 under democratic rule with th
subsequent republican successful n -crd.
"If r.o labor be the n u!t cf dem
ocratic rule." he asked. "d.-s any man
want to so b:rk to the Wil: on bill?"
ilcriiscn thn told how a pro.iitu-nt
sheep rran cf today sal J there i- not
a mortgage In tho town of Sncwrt.ike.
The republican paity passed the Sher
man anti-trust law; the republican ad
ministration is the or.ly one which ha
tried to control trusts by means of that
law. The republiian patty uill find
a way to settle this rroblem. Past w
rrds refute all democratic ih'irs
the frien1 cf labor. Now. th-t narty
says, give us another chance and w
will pass the measures required."
Democratic spellbinders think the
oecple ore simple-minded. Demot ratio
leguslatures have enacted all th tax
exemption law In Arizona. Is it hon
orable for that party to attempt to rr
peal such laws after inviting capital
to the territory to accept the prlviW-'
offered through them? No direct men
tion is mnie cf organized labor in the
lemoeratic platforms. The position if
the democratic party In this campaign
is similar to the dog which could run
both ways and bark at both ends."
Wilson closed the debate ar.d char
acterized Morrison's address as con
sisting of criticism and ridicule, but
he made few attempts to dlicie of
Morrison's rtatement cf facts. The
meeting between the two inn has
rreatly encouraged the republicans.
Morrison's vigorous speeeh was Ub-er-sllv
interspersed with applause, while
WiU-on's was received with coll si
lence. lar passenger trains and they abo have
handled several freight trains. A.it

that all th? striking firemen have bwn
