Mrs. La Runt a on the Death of Dr. ( 'olev. New York. November 2". Mr. Gould s expected rejoinder to the circular is sued yesterday by Kdwln Hawley and K. H. Harriman relative to the use of his name in sending out requests for proxies to be used at the approaching election of the Colorado Fuel and Iron company was given out tonight in the form of a statement made to the press". Mr. Gould declared the circular i:i J question to be "in some respects a di- reet misstatement of facts and In others an ingenious perversion of the truth." and expresses the conviction that it was sent out in order to secure control r.f the property by Messrs. Hawley and Harriman to the exclusion of himself. The following statement by George J. Gould was given out at his office to night: "I have read the very surpris- 1 ing circular of the 24th instant ad- uressed by Messrs. Hawley and Harrt Tinn to the stockholders of the Color ado Fuel and Iron company. In some respects it is a direct misstatement of f-.ts and in others an ingenious per version of the truth. 'Several conferences were held, but with no definite results. At one of these conferences it was proposed to ascer tain whether a board could be made up on an agreement with Mr. Osgood, assigning him two seats. This plan was projosed to Mr. Osgood after th conference on November 6th and was abandoned as it became evident that Mr. Osgood couid elect a considerably larger representation than that sug sted. The matter was thus left in an holly undetermined state when I left fur the south on November 11th. No iorm whatever, c it her of . circ ular or pjoxy, was shown to me or rec eived my approval. The conference referred to was merely a strf;,'e in the negotiation and was net conclusive on any point whatever. During my absence in the south I learned by wire that a circular and form of proxy the one signed in my name and the other including my name, jointly with those of Messrs. Hawley and Harriman had beer mailed to the stockholders. Immedl- that instructions for their preparation had been given to counsel by a third party after the conference of November f.th. Mr. Hawley later definitely dis claimed any recollection of any such forms having been presented or having been the subject of consideration at the conference. His circular indicates that he had been prevailed upon to re Vise his recollection upon this point. "The Hawley circular states: 'That at a subsequent meeting on Friday last. November 21st, Mr. Gould pro posed that the proxies already obtained should be divided between himself and the undersigned. The latter insisted that under the circumstances the prox ies should be returned.' "The quality of this statement will appear from the facts. The facts are that at a meeting between Messrs. Hawley, Harriman and myself, and at which Mr. Winslow S. Pierce was pres ent on Thursday last the day before the interview mentioned in the circu lar Mr. Pierce, in an effort to avoid the public discussion which would re sult from a return of the proxies, suggest'-rl that the proxies should be di vided, or should be voted by a sub stitute, for candidates selected on it. basis of a revision. He urged this course both' then and at an interview with Mr. Hawley on the following day, when I expressed myself as willing to fellow the course thus suggested for the rc 3on thus urged. The suggestion was not iiilnf : my judrmetit Had de?rtre, ex pressed and repeated, was that the proxies should be returned. I also re quested from Mr. Hawley an oppor tunity to see the proxies received. This vr s dec lined. "I n:-vr saw the joint circular or proxy until my return from the south. It was then quite evident to me that the action in sending out the circulate and proxies which had been taken la excess of any understanding with me m l without any from" me. would, if San Francisco, November 25.

L?ads to Conclusion That Her Death Was Accidental. Paris, November -rigid secrecy which i tained by officials and by the coinmis- ' sicn of American doctors concerning Havana, November 25. The central labor union tonight dec ided to call off the strike, and committees were ap pointed to Inform the various unions of thi: decision. There probably will be a complete resumpG'1'! of work to morrow. Much of the credit for the settlement c-f the strike is due General Gomez, who headed a committee which con sulted today the officials of the Havana Commercial company, against whom the s-triko was first directed. After the conference General Gomez and a majority of the committee expressed themselves satisfied with the stand the? company had taken. The officials maintained that they had not discriminated against Cuban j apprentic es, the lac t being that the companies books showed that over '.'0 per cent of its apprentices were Cubans. I The company would maintain and even ln rease this ratio, but it refused to treat with the central labor union in matters p-.-itaining to its employes. The oflkials rail that thty were always willing to meet a committee made up of workers from their factories,- and they agreed upon a plan to open the factories again if the men returned to work.

COMMERCIAL FINANCIAL Copper Situations in New York Beach a Lower Point. New York, November 2". A serious hitch occurred today in the plans for a settlement of the coal controversy by a conferent e between the coal oper ators and the miners' union and it is row almost ce'rtain that the final ad justment of the points at issue will be referred again to the Gray commission. At a meeting between the presidents of the coul roads and a large number f independent operators a strong pro test wus entered by the latter against treating directly with the miners. An inv.tation to meet Mr. Mitchell at Washington on Friday was declined peremptorily and it was agreed unani mously in the judgment of the operat ors that it was best for the present, to ?o on with the hearing before the c omiiiission.

All pros- pects for an understanding between the t'r.ited Mine Workers and coal cp- la'.ois outride the anthracite coal "trike commission came to a sudden termination late this afternoon through he rceipt ot a dispatch to Wayne MacVeagh'. representing the Pennsyl- I vania Coal company and the Hillside ! Coal and Iron company notifying him ; that at a meeting of the anthracite coal ; ,ad me n in New Yoi k today it had :en decided not to grant the interview to Mr. Mitchell and his associates which has been suggested for Friday next. The announcement coming as it id after an al?-day conference in. th'S city between Mr. MacVeagh and Mr. Mitchell and Lis associates, attended a patch from New York telling of the action of the operators, simply smiled and said that he had not asked for the conference, but that when it was sug gested to him if it would be agreeable to meet the operators he said it would. Mr. Harrow and Mr. Lloyd, however, were outspoken regarding the action of the operators. Mr. Harrow said it was "now up to the operators," and that he would return at once to Scranton and on Tuesday next would appear be fore the commission ready to go on with the hearing. Mr. Lloyd, holding in his hand the Associated Press dispatch, referred to the fact that Friday's conference had been suggested in order to adjust some matters on which there was still some disagreement. "Yet," said Mr. Lloyd, "the same men who only last week wired the commis sion their assent to the general provis ions of the tentative agreement, and upon the strength of which the com mission adiourned for a week in order to give the parties time to get togeth er, now go completely back on their former action and call it all off. We are satisfied to go before the commis- i ri.r.i and continue the hearing." Messrs. Mitchell. Harrow and Lloyd left here tonight for Scranton. SUBMERGED TEXAS.

Kokomo Relieves It Has Found Knough to Supply the State. Kokemo. Indiana. November 2 The high price of coal and v.ojd and tho failure of natural gas is a problem that has been facing; Indiana people. One solution is the discovery of an immense peat deposit four miles north east of this city. The be d extends over several acres and is 30 feet in depth. It was tested as a find and fe-und to contain more heat to the cubic foot than the best bituminous coal. Lying on the surface of the ground !t can be cut in blocks . nd marketed with little labor. It is clean, has no offensive odor, and can be sold cheaper than coil. The land owners are taking steps to dtvelop and market the peat as a substitute for coal. The newly discovered deposit will supply the whole state for years, with plenty for export. When a young lady going: away to school carries food away with her in plare of a box of candy, there must be some reason. A woman in Milton Mills, X. H., says: '.'Having a large family, I had much care and worry, and was never very strong anel healthy, but managed to keep fairly well until the last few years. Each summer lately found me worn out and weak at its close, so that I had to spend a week or two In bed. My stomach always fails me when I am over-tired, the food refusing to as similate, until finally my stomach be comes so weak that the mere stand ing on my feet causes me to retch so violently that I have often vomited blood. "I had seen Grrpe-Nut3 food adver tised and fancied it was like other cer eals, many of which I have tried atJ discarded. Whan my usual attack came on last August, I was In despair, for nothing would stay on my stomach ex cept a little hot milk. "I decided to try Grape-Nuts and rent fcr a package. I ate a little and lay back after eating without experi encing any of the sickly feelings that usually followed any movement in bed, and fell Into a refreshing sleep. I con tinued using the food and day by day gained rapidly In strength until now I am entirely well and strong and my stomach does not bother me any more. "Grape-Nuts is what I have often wished for something that I can eat for breakfast and feel that I am satis fied. After eating a dish of Grape-Nuts with a little cream, I can work all the morning and forget I have a Ptomach. "The children like it so well that it is hard to keep them in bounds as to the quantity that should be eaten. My eldest girl actually carried off a pack age when she returned to school at with as much elation as if it had be?en a box of the choicest bon-bons." Name given by Postum Co., Battle Creek, Mich.
