AJilZ Si H 4 i . i i it j i o VOTE FOR PEACE IN AHTHRACIT There Is Little Doubt Thai Arbitration Will Be Accepted In Some Districts, Though, There Is an Insistence That All the Strikers Shall Have Their Places Back That Is the Only Obstruction in the Way of a Peaceful Set tlementPresident Mitchell Clears J. P. Morgan of an Accusation of Indifference to an Early Settlement of the Strike. "W'ilkesburre. Pa., October IS. 'What was probably the last full week o. the anthracite coal strike closed today without anything developing to charge the peaceful trendif events. It was a quist day at headquarters cv.-J. a busy one in the district and sub-district headquarters throughout the entire coal fields on account cf the election of dele-gates to Monday's convention. All the 'lccals" have met and celected their representative: to tho Wilkes barre gathering. There reeir.s to be little doubt that the convention will accept the offer of arbitration. Ite ports have been received here coming principally from the regiu.i around Soranton that there will be much op position to the aecositanee of th- plan but these leports were not taken scii ously at VrtsMeat Mitchell's head quarters. There will be opposition in the .convention, but it la e xpec ted t3 disappear after Mr. Mitch-.-!! explains the proposition to the delegatL-s. Probably the most di.Iicult ciu.stion which a v-i L 1 ccrr.o brl'jie tile conveiiti :i is one relative to the Ftrikers recurlug their old place?. Th? companies are on record a? raying th t they w;'l t.i':- care or' all the employes who have stood by them during the strike. Many miners want the con vent: 03 to with hold the acceptance of th.L- arbitration scheme until the unk-n i assured that the strikers will be employed in th-; li former places. This -wiU..iUely rauvc a long debate, but the officials of the union say the matter will be fixed up satisfactorily to all concerned. President Mitchell was ask-t J tonight what he knaw of the report cabled to the Manchester Guardian from New Yoik that J. P. Morgan was forced to intervene in the e oal strike, u.nd in re ply said: "To my persartal knowledge Mr. Mor gan has been trying to settle the coal strike ever since he came beck from Kurope two months ago. If ethers had been as fair and reasonable ai Mr. Morgan was. the strike would have been settled long ago. I know nothing about Morgan's financial interests com pelling him try reek: a settlement of the strike, but I rm informed that he keen ly felt his responsibility to the public in connection with the coal famine arid h:is done his best to brins about the end. Both Mr. Morgan and Mr. Cassatt of the Pennsylvania railroal were working for a settlement wh--n Presl eient Rucsevclt made his last and suc cessful move. Mr. Morgan could not very well be forced to !o something which he had been trying to accomplish for several weeks. I make this state ment in jurtice to Mr. Morgan. "We have had no quarrel with him and wp v.ich none. We do not fear him, but prefer his friendship if he 1' willing to give it to u.. I am credi bly informed that he is friendly to or ganized labcT. As an organizer of cap ital he concedes the right of labor to organization, and whea labor organi zations are fair and conservative he believes in dealing directly with them for the advantage of both the employer and employe. It is this relat!o:i. hip which the United Mine Workeis se.k in the anthracite field, and we invite Mr. Morgan to co-operate with ui in securing a permanent and scientific so lution of the labor problem in this re gion." The slyift of the Mount Lockout col liery o' the Temple Coal and Iron Com pany at Wyoming was wrecked today by one of the small locomotives used for hauling cars containing culm. The engineer left the locomotive for a moment and it suddenly started and ran at full speed 200 yard3 to the shaft and nlunged down, lodging 320 feet be low the surface at the Rash vein. For tunately the boiler did not explode, but the big machine In its fall tore out the lining of the shaft and did other dam age that will cause a suspension for a week or more.' ONE LOCAL HANGS BACK. Shenandcah. Pa., October IS. A ina joiity of the local unions of Shenan doah and vicinity instructed the dele gates elected to the Wilkybarrc con vention to vote against calling the strike off unless assurance !a given that every man who responded to the call to go on strike 'ce given his old posi tion hack. THIS ONE ACCEPTS. Hazleton. Pa., October IS. The dis trict council of the United Mine Work ers of the seventh district, represent ing 42 locals, tg lay unanimously adopted resolutions endorsing the ac tion of President Mitchell in accepting the arbitration proposal. SCRANTON UNANIMOUS. Scrar.ton, Pa., October 1?,. The last rreetings of the locals of the United Mire Workers ti elect delegiteT to Mcndev's conver.t'rn were hl l tmight. Careful Inquiry shows that' there was OR WAR practically a unr.r.iir.ous vote in favor of accepting th proposition. The dec laration of President Mitchell that it Wis not true that he opposed accept ance had much to do with this result. DAVID 13. STANDS PAT. Ithaca, N. Y., October IS. Spca'iir.g here tonight, Le.vid B. Hill, referring to the coal strike situation and the plank in the democratic state plitfonn favoring the government ownership of Li n'i..es, said: "I am not here to take back one word' of mis ciAii plank, but- 1 nip. here to stand by it, and I do stand by it. be-,--.,"-r. it is trie only way of settling this question permanently. "1 am not here to sav when it will bo necessary or best or the govern ment lo so act but 1 am hero to stand by this plank." YOUNG KRONER FREE His Affairs Adjusted on the Arrival of His Father. 'Henry Kroner, the father cf C. H. Kroner, ths young man who has been In j.u'1 for the last two weeks on a charge of obtaining money by false rcpie.st ntaticn. arrived in the city yes terday morr.ing for the relijf'of his so'i. The lather Is a' prosperous business man cf Lcng Branch. N. J., and he Is c nr.ccted with a bank there. He set tled all the obligations of the young man, amounting to $129.60. He made a favorable impression ucon ail with whem he came in contact, and they ! were disposed to make things as pleas ant for him as possible. He is going cn to California to straight?n out the affairs of his son there. He took a phi-osophic view of the situation. He did not scold cr find fault, but treated the young man rather as a chum than as an erring son. He was somewhat broken up when he went t: the Jail, but he quick ly recovered himself. He said that the bey was one of the best boys he had ever reen. He had never been out of his father's care until three months ago when he went away on a vacation which he had earned by hard work. There was no time fixed for his return and no limit to the extent of his wan dering. The father though did not ex pect him to go outside of New Tork and the New England states. About two weeks after he had gene a resident of Long Branch saw him at the Astor house In New York. Mr. Kroner was in New York a few days later, but the son had not been at the hotel for short time. Ills father left word for i litTi rin Vifa return t - mnlro si run rlnu'ii ' to Long Branch and see the fc'ks and then continue his vacation until he got ready to go to work agaliv The first word he got from him was after he was put into jail. Mr. Kroner thinks that the money that this es capade has cost will net be wholly lost. The son thinks so, too. He has had an experience that will last him through life. Mr. Kroner said he had heard of boys rowing wild oats, but he never knew that particular kind of cereal to be sown quite so fast. All the accounts against the young man had been left with Justice Burnett. They were all paid with cheerfulness. o THS BELATED REGISTRATIONS The Recorder's Duty Very Plain and Simple. O. P. Morton, assistant district at torney, was last night shown the artl cle3 of the democratic fiction mills re garding the decision of the county re corder to place on the great register the names of voters that were received at his office before midnight of Tues day and seme further light was thrown upon the court of last resort about to be instituted in the recorder's office. Mr. Morton, with whom the recorder consulted regarding the matter, states that only ore opinion has been given the recorder's office, namely, that the belated narnes could not be placed on the great register under the law: that any other statement Is false and can probably be ascribed to the zeal of the ucorder's office in securing the full re publican registration. With the ques tion cf the politics of those excluded the district attorney's office has noth ing to do. Knowledge of that seems to be in the bosom of the recorder. The district attorney does not malts the law, and cannot Interpret it to tu;t the recorder and the sheriff, but simply as it ctan2s in the book'-, regardless of Politics. The fallowing pir?T'-aphs determine the euty of the recorder: Paragraph ILC3. "No registering ofH- cer shall be permit to--.1 to place any name upo;i the great register after the twenty-fii st cay before the election." Par. L2i'S. "Twenty days before tha general e lection o the year 1!'02 and twenty days before every general elec tion in every second year thereafter the recorder must. make a. copy cf the entries existing on the great register on the twenty-first day preceding such election. " If the names are not in tha office they rould not be In the copy required by the law, and the names now In con troversy were not there at the time re quired. The law clearly shows that the names must be on the register before mid night of the last day, and can contem plate the making of the copy provided only upon that condition. The recorder has absolutely no discretion in the matter, but is burdened with the duty of making up the great register as it actually Is, and not as he thinks it ought to be. His solicitous care for those belated it-publicans is affecting, but forlunate ly he is not to b;? looked to for judg ment In public matter?. His and his learned counsel's interpretation of the law In a former case have caused some losa or c cr.fi Jence in their infallibility. It may be that Judge Kent has de cided that one placed in a similar po--ition to those belated voters can c a"t his vote, r.e ve-i theless tha recorder's ucsr as to the legality of th-? r-g'iF-tration can net entitle him ta continue to enter names upon the great register te; the day of the else-tion. If he hid made the copy as tha law plainly di rects this would be Impossible. Is the i cecrder'n office destined to "re a sacri ficial offering by tho democrats to cine v.Mr.g cf the- narty? It sjer.-.s tiv be al ways under the knife. INVASION OF PI HAL BY MR. MORRISON That County Will Give a Good Re publican Majority. ricrer.ee, October IS (Special). Hon. Ut.bert E.

This is an athletic age. The man or womai -who is weak or sickly, is not in the race; success socially or In business goes cnly to the strong and healthy.

When in training for an athletic meet, I would Just live on Grape-Nuts alone for three days be fore the event was to come off. Dur ing this time I have wen six champion ship races out' of two athletic meets. In a SCO yard run my time was 35 sec ends, and in the 75 yard dash the time was 9 seconds, both being a good rec ord. "Grape-Nuts has given me a stronger mind and also bodily strength which no ether food could have done in so Fhort a time. I have gained strength in a most remarkable way since using Grape-Nuts. Members of our football team have a training table on which may be found I first of all the 'athlete's favorite food. 1 Grape-Nuts.' " Name given by Pos tum Co., Battle Creek, Mich.

Present appearances Indicate that the measure will be defeated by an enorm ous majority. The socialists and' the two. radical parties will vote against It because It Is too agrarian, and the centrists and the two conservative parties will rejec t the bill because it Is not agrarian enough.

The executive committee of the water storage conference committee Is work ing hard In the preparation of the ar ticles of incoi poration of the proposed Water Users' association, and at a meeting to be held next Wednesday in Judge Kibbey's office it hopes tj b able to complete the articles which will be reported to the general committee lor approval. Meanwhile the work of securing sig natures to thi document prepared at the mass meeting, setting forth the willingness of the subscribers to co operate in the water storage move ment, is going on as fast as the com mitteemen can push it. In this matter there seems to be a lack of under standing of the situation on the part of seme landowners. The committee desires it to be fully understood that the signing of this agreement carries with it no obligation that doos not re ceive the endorsement of the signer. Tt is only an agreement to take stock in the Water Users' association providing the articles of Incorporation adopted later are satisfactory to the man who has signed his name. If they are not there is no obligation to carry his co operation further. But an effort is be ing made to have these articles satis factory to everybody. The present roll is being prepared merely to determine whether or not the people will co-operate under satisfactory conditions, so no one can raise a reasonable objection u -ignmg it. Mr. Maxwell's address' delivered in the theatre here will be in print shortly and will be generally circulated all over the country, and it is hoped every land owner will read It. The committee will then begin a campaign of visitation to all land owners for securing signatures. The book in the board of trada room has been signed up for nearly 30.Cs) acres, but it should be twice that. Other books are in circulation cn the south side.
