NO. 1.VJ STRIKE LEAD TO THE Only the Formal Ratification gates Required The Plan of Settlement Already Endorsed by Mr. Mitchell and His Associates in a Conference Yesterday A Meeting of Delegates Called for Next Monday There May Be Some Opposition to a Settlement, but There Is No Doubt That It Will Be Overcome Work Will Be Resumed on Tuesday. Wilkesbarre. Pa.. October IS. The executive board of the three anthracite districts cf the United Mine Workers of America in joint session today unan imously decided to recommend to the delegate convention of the striking miners the acceptance of the arbitra tion proposition submitted by the pres ident cf the United States, and it is icasonably certain that the advice will be followed and the great struggle brought to an end. The convention via assemble in this city on Monday morning, and it is the hc.pe and belief of the officers cf the union that the mining of oal will bo resumed before the clc.-e of next week, after a suspen sion cf more than five month?. The citizens of the entire, region are much elated that the strike is almost ever, because the business in the coal fields has been practically paralyzed since the strike began. From the time the r.ews was received late last night until ahcut 10 o'clock this morning there was some doubt as to how the miners would receive the modified plan. President Mitchell was asked to make some expression on the proposi tion, but he steadfastly, refused. lie was pressed by corruspoisdentTt for .1 statement, and finally at 10 o'clock he cleared up the situation by issuing the following bulletin: "Wilkesharre, Pa.. October 1G. Ap preciating the anxiety and impatience cf the public and mire workers fi.r some authoritative statement from this office, I issue this bulletin to Pay that I was unalterably opposed to the acceptance of cr 'atMUiescence in the fr.rm of settlement proposed by the coal operators, because it restricted the president of the United States in mak ing a selection of the men who are to determine the questions involved in the coal strike. These restrictions having been removed and representation given to organized labor as well as to organ ized capital, I am new prepared to give my personal approval to the settlement of the issues involved in this, strike by the commission selected by the presi dent, and shall recommend to the ex ecutive officers of districts 1, 7 and S in their meeting today that an immediate call be issued for a convention, where authorization is necessary to declare the strike at an end. "In the meantime I trust that the people of our country will be as pa tient as possible, as we are moving-as rapidly as the interests of our people will permit. (Signed) "JOHN MITCHELL. "President United Mine Workers of Amer.ica." When this wan read to the arriving district leaders and groups ef miners who came to headquarters to learn the news, general satisfaction was ex pressed that Mitchell was willing to ac- "5: Me ropol.tan. 141; Missouri Pa cept the modified plan, and from that tifit- UW- J- Central. 1.3: N.

It was "not until 2 o'clock that the thirty-seven members of the thres district beards were called into a ses sion which lasted two hours and fifteen minutes. Some opposition was manifested in the meeting against certain features of the plan, but after a full discussion cf the objectionable parts a unanimous vote was taken to recommend to the convention the acceptance cf the prop osition. As the convention was held behind closed doors and a bi.nd of se crecy was placed upon every man present, the specific objections were not officially announced. These are the same executive boards which on May S last crderel a strike to begin, which action was- approved in the face of Mr. Mitchell's opposition, by the Hazletrri convention a few days later. It is expected that some objec tion will be raised on the floor of the convention, but the cfliccrs are confi dent that the opposition will disappear when President Mitchell explains, all the features of the modified proposition to the delegates. If the plans" of the strike leaders are not disarranged a general resumption of mining will take place about next Thursday. It is expected that the con vention will last two days, and there will be an interval cf one day from the . time the convention adjourns until the time set for the men to go back to the mines. Ther will not be enough work at flrt for all the strikers, es it is the intention of the companies not to dis miss the non-union men who have stcod by them during the strike. The organization will take care of such other men as are unable to find work. It is estimated that all the strikers will not find work until two or three months have elap?ed. This is due to the condition cf the mire1?. Some of them are wholly or partially flooded and ethers need repairing. ONE OF THE. ARBITRATORS. Cedar Rapids, Io.. October 16. Ed gar E.

The formal announcement that the coal miners' representatives had agreed to submit their difficulties with the coal operators to a board of arbitration appointed by President Roosevelt removed any lin gering doubts that existed in Wall street as to a possible hitch in the ef forts to bring about a satisfactory so lution of the matter. Advices from abroad are that the situation is viewed there with great cheerfulness and has intensified the optimistic feeling and caused heavy buying in the general market. STOCKS.

Your.g" Cor belt, the champion featherweight pugi INt c.f the world, was awarded the de cision over Joe Bernstein of New York, "the Ghetto champion," before the Eureka Athletic club tonight in Music hall. The men were to have boxed ten rounds to a decision at catch weights. Bernstein was in the pink of condition and weighed In this afternoon at 124 pounds.

The New York boy was the favorite with 3.500 spectators and hi3 every telling blow was cheered. Bernstein in the third round landed a right swing which opened the Denver boy's left eye, and throughout the battle the claret flowed freely from the wound. After five rounds of sparring tl? champion went after B;rnstein. and a succession of rushes followed. He tound that the New Yoiier gave as good as he received and showed no in clination to shirk. At the end of the seventh round Bernstein called Referee Joe Pollock of New York to hin corner and showed him that a small bone In his left hand had been broken and Bernstein's seconds then threw up th sponge.

"I asked husband to get some Grape Nuts, the ready cooked food. He brought them at noon, and I served a dish for dinner, for I thought what was good fcr breakfast was good for any other meal. Well! do you know we did not eat half so hearty of the meat, po tatoes, etc. after eating the Grape Nuts. It filled that vacancy which the regular fare did net.

MORRISON TAKES TEMPE The Whole Town and Country Turned Out The Greatest Political Gathering Ever Seen cn the South Side There Will Be Another Rousin? Meeting at Mesa Tonight.' Wherever Mr. Morrison goes he spreads a contagion of republican on 4 thusiusm and friendly interest in li ir? canvass for election as delegate to con gress. Tempe was never so thorough ly warmed up as it wns last night. Old residents said they hid never Been in this country such a politictl meeting and such a crowd had never been called cut there. Two carloads of people accompanied, Mr. Morrison from Phoenix. They had the Pioneer band along and they were met j;t the depot by an Immense dele gation embracing a considerable part of the population cf Tempe, headed by the Tempe brass band. Two- long pro cessions, one following each band, marched into town. There was a brief musical programme on the street cor ner, and then the crowd poured itself int-: the bi;r Curry hall, or as much of it did as there was room for. Net only the town attended the meeting, but the whole country as wf II. The normal j 'hcol teachers and pupils were there. Those, who could not find seats found i places on the tlcor and against the wall cr on the stairway leading to the hall. me county cancinaies accompan.eu Mr. Morrison on the platform. The I meeting was opened by Mayor Knight, who introduced the colored glee club. After a song he introduced Judge Jo seph IT. Kibbey, who spoke briefly In the absence of Colonel JN A. Zabriskie. who was unable to be present. Judge Kibbey described the present prosper ous condition of the country, which, he said, had always been prosperous under republican administrations and at r.o other times. He paid a gl.vv.ing trib ute to President Roosevelt and ad dressed himself for a few minutes irt territorial and local affairs. There was wild cheering upon the presentation of Mr. Morrison, who spoke first of the chief pride cf Tempe. the teiril orial normal school. He next alluded to the agricultural wealth of that part of the valley, one of the most fertile regions on earth, and destined to an extension of agricultural pros polity t hi the -r-mtl'n of the national irrigation law, a product of a republic? n administration and con gress. While on the subject of the ben eficence of the republican administra tion, he recounted a list cf its benefi cences during a period of forty years, or its existence. Not the least of the beneficiaries r f its usefulness had be.n the laboring men, whose condition had been made enviable. Whatever they r-njoyed the republican party had con ferred upon them, for when it was in power the laborers always had work at good wages. The settlement of the coal strike Mr. Morrison said was only another in stance cf the activity cf the party for rood. The credit of the settlement be longed in a greater measure to Presi dent Roosevelt then to any other man. By his earnest efforts the poor had been spared great ruffcring. He mae'e a comparison of the tarrl torial platforms of the parties, and ex posed the pretenses cf the democratic platform. It held out out a hope to the laboring man which the past record of the p::rty told him would never be fulfilled. In the matter of the tax ex emption laws it proposed a repudiation of a promlre which had been solemnly given. In the construction of the re pudiation plank cf the platform the party at Tucfon had foolishly bid for the vote of the taxpayers by a pro posal which must be detested by every honest man. In conclusion Mr. Morrison rudiculed the theory that statehood cculd come only through democratic success this fall. In proclaiming this theory he said every democratic United States senator had been slandered. The terri tories had the promise of the senatcn that they would support the state hood bill nt the next session, and Mr. Morrison believed that they would do so whatever might be the political complexion of the territory. Then there was a great republican majority in the senate, and it takss majorities to make states. It must be apparent that the majority would be more disposed tc giant favors to politi cal friends. Nothing could be mere ridiculous than the statehood issue as It was presented by the democratic speakers of the territory and the dem ocratic newspapers. The speaker did not believe they would advance such an argument if they had any other to offer. But they had been divested cf one issue after another until only this was left. There must be some reason given, however ridiculous it may be. for the election of a democratic dele gate to congress. The ir.nprPS?ion nisde by Mr. Morri son was most favorable. It found fre quent expression after the adjourn ment cf the meeting. Mr. Morrison will remain in Tempe today and will speak In Mesa tonight. A special train will leave Phoenix for Mesa at 6:30 this evening, accompanied by the Pioneer band. o GOVERNMENT'S INNING. Yesterday Was the Insurgents' Turn to Lose. Caracas, October 16.
