PHILADELPHIA. Pa., August 31.
Tho Bonding company, tlio Philadelphia
& Reading railway and Philadelphia &
Reading Coal & Iron company today
fded answers to the suit of the federal
govornmont to break up the alloged
monopoly existing in anthracite coal
conditions of the state. The answers of
tho throe conacrns. of which George F.
Baor is prosidont. made a general de
nial of tho government's allegations
into tho first great strike in the hard
coal fiolds and its relation to the pra-rt-dontial
campaign of 1000, when MoKin
loy was elected.
It declared that agreements to ad
vance the price, of conl were brought
about in 1900 by violence and intimida
tion of tho striking mine workers, by
the failure, of tho government and state
to force a law to protect tho-coal com
panies and by the importunities of tho
late Marcus A. llanna. who it is al
leged was anxious to end the strike on
account of tho impending presidential

are made to the answers. Tho answer
of tho coal and iron company takes up
the strike and says that substantially
all the workmon in tho anthracite re
gions abandoned their work under force
and by tho effect of violence, turbulence
and intimidation. The answer says that
"Shortly afterwards it was represented
in substance to the oflicials of this de
fendant and representatives of other
mining companies by Hanna, then the
chairman of the Republican central
committee, that if the said strike should
not be speedily settled by an advance
in wages for tho workmen in and about
the mines of the entire anthracite re
gion, tho striko would extend to tho
states of Ohio, Indiana and Illinois and
that tho election of McKinley and
Roosevelt would thereby be endangered.
Agree to tho P.aisc
"That llanna represented to tho com
pany that ho" was authorized to settle
tho striko through President Mitchell
of the operators would agreo to givo tho
workmen a 10 per cent increaso in
wages. It set forth that tho company
did agree to advance tho wages of its
mine and colliery workmen 10 per cent
and that other principal mino owners
who had been in conference with llanna
had agreed to the same concession.
It was stated that thereafter confer
ences were held between officials or
representatives of tho principal oper
ators, who thcri'toforo had offered said
advance in wag. s and representatives
of tho principal ontractors.
"The dofendaiit was obliged to agree
with certain ontractors several of
whom had pre-existing contracts for the
purchase of coa! to be produced by thorn
respectively. and who were severally ten
ants or lessees of tho defendants to en
ter into new contracts with such as
should desire to do so. Increasing
prices wcro to be paid for coal to bo
produced by them respectively and to
be sold and delivered to tho doefnd
ants." Forced to Increase Price
Continuing, the answer avows that all
conferences be ween oporators and con
tractors woro v liolly brought about and
compollcd and forced upon tho defend
ant by "turbulence, violence, intimida
tion, and as aforesaid by the failure
of tho KOVT.viyyjt and comomnwcalths
of Pennsylvaiu , tWnforco tho laws to

Old Dominion Produces in Vi
cinity of Three and Half Mil
lion Pounds of Copper,
Development Planned for Globe
Boston Shaft of Much Inter
estGibson Employs Larg
est Force in Its History,
For tho month ending today tho Old
Dominion will show tho greatest month
ly production of coppor in its history,
tho output of tho smelter being about
3,500,000 pounds, although nctunl fig
ures nro not at hand. Tho full battory
of furnaces has been in operation until
sovoral days ago, when a lonk caused
tho temporary closing down of ono of
them. Tho railroad tieun for tho last
weok has caused tho mining industry
very little, if any, inconvenience, owing
to tho excellent shape in which the sus
pension of railroad operations found it.
A largo supply of fuel, both oil and
coal, has bcon accumulating hero for
months past and at tho smolter the coko
supply would last for several months if
no moro arrived. Thero is also a largo
reserve stoclc of sulphidos and concen
trates. Development work has progressed
without interruption at tho Old Domin
ion and with good results. Tho crosscut
in Block Xo. 0 on the 11th levol is being
drivon through', which was not dono in
tho preceding one. Tho width of tho
Xo. 1 sulphide voin is only about seven
feet in tho new crosscut, but tho oro is
much higher in iron and sulphur. Xo.
2 vcin will bo encountered somo timo
this week, as thirty feet of tho horse
which divides tho two veins has bcon
penotrated. "Work in the crosscut is
rather difficult owing to tho water and
mud which has been encountered. The
winze that is being sunk from tho 14th
level is now 150 feet deep and only 50
fcot moro depth is required beforo the
ICth level is reached.
Globo Consolidated
Tho Gem shaft of tho Globo Consoli
dated is now 920 feet deep and still in
dionte. Greater interest now, however,
centers in operations at tho Globe-Boston
shatt or the company, where devel
opment work which is ot great import
ance to the district, will soon bo under
way. A station is being cut at tho 782
foot level and a 500-gallon compound
condensing Prcscott pump will bo in
stalled there, water having been en
countered at 7S9 feet, tho bottom of the
Two important crosscuts will be
driven at tho Globe-Boston shaft, which
will mean much for tho futuro of the
company. Ono will bo driven to the
northwest, whore at a distance from tho
shaft of. 150 fcot it is expected to cut
tho vein that was worked on tho 450
levol of tho mine. It is thought that
tho voin in the deeper workings con
tains oro in much larger quantities and
hotter values and tho management is
confident that mining can be dono there
to good advantage. Tho first metal pro
duct of tho Globo Consolidated will
probably como from this portion of tho
Another crosscut will be driven to the
southwest and its developments will be
of moro than ordinary interest to tho
other companies operating in this sec
tion of tho district. It will bo the
first crosscut to go under Big Johnny
gulch and will also bo ono of tho long
est in tho district, as it is planned to
havo it penetrate Buffalo Hill and con
nect with tho Buffalo crosscut of tho
Gray mine of tho Old Dominion at tho
740 level of that mino. Tho distance
from tho Globe-Boston shaft to tho
proporty lino between tho Buster claim
of tho Globo Consolidated and tho Unit
ed Globo is 2,200 feet, which will be
tho length of tho crosscut.
At tho Globe-Boston shaft the foun
dation is being complotcd for tho in
stallation of tho two 72-inch by 18-foot
horizontal tubular boilers. Tho boilers
are now on tho ground and will bo in
stalled at once.
Gibson Copper Company
Shipments of oro from tho Gibson to
tho Old Dominion smelter for tho month
of August havo fallen somewhat below
those of tho two preceding months and
will probably aggregate 1,200 tons for
tho month. About fifty tons aro being
shipped daily from tho mine.
Tho largest forco of men ever em
ployed by tho company aro now at work,
240 men boing now on tho company rolls
and tho camp is a busy ono on tho
surfaco as well as underground. A
hospital consisting of four wards is be

who has been mino physician for tho

Good 'progress is boing mndo on tho

Compulsory Arbitration Plan at
Peace Conference Wins by a
Big Majority.
To Prevent Armed Conflicts
Arising from Collection of
Contractual Debts Text of
United .States Plan,
By Asspciated Press.
THE HAGUE, August 31. Germany
has reconsidered her refusal to accept
any list of cases which tho powers shall
submit to arbitration and is now willing
to approvo of tho limited schedulo of
cases for obligatory arbitration.
This unexpected change of attitude
in Germany was announced by Baron
Von Bieberstcin, tho head of tho Ger
man delegation, this afternoon. A com
mittco was appointed to cxamino tho
American proposition on this subject.
Tho baron, however, said ho was await
ing definite instructions from Berlin
beforo submitting to tho committee the
list of cases approved by tho authori
ties at the German capital.
Consequently tho debate on the sub
ject adjourned until September 3. In
the courso of tho discussion Count Zer
niolli, chiof of the delegation from It
aly, announced his opposition to tho
articlo introduced by tho American del
egation that later adhesion to tho con
vention shall bo subject to ratification
of the document by tho Unitdd States
senate. Tho count contended while
other nations would be bound by tho
terms of tho convention, the United
States could always escape any obliga
tion by the senato at Washington with
holding its approval.
M. Renault (Franco) defended the
American proposition, pointing out sev
eral countries as in the same position
as tho United States. Tho article was
eventually approved by a largo major
ity. Russians Also Agree
THE HAGUE, August 31. In answer
to tho inquiry of President Xelidoff, the
authorities at St. Petersburg havo ca
bled him that, though Emperor Xich
olas on tho occasion of tho conference
and offered to givo up tho prerogative
of calling and organizing peace confer
ences, which was not accepted, he says
ho will not repeat tho offer, but that tho
Russian delegation is to support any
proposition concerning tho meetings of
conferences on the lines of tho Amer
ican proposition, namely that the con
ference meet cycry seven years.
Tho Americans havo drawn up a new
proposal with regard to tho collection
of contractual debts, differing with the
first proposition only in form. It is
principally intended to do away with
numerous reservations mado when the
first proposal was put to a vote. The
text is as follows:
Tho American Plan
"With tho view of preventing armed
conflicts of pecuniary origin between
nations, arising from demands of tho
government of ono nation for the pay
ment by tho government of another
country of contractural debts duo to
persons or to nations, tho powers agreo
not to havo recourso to armed force
for recovery of such contractural debts.
Tho stipulation is not applicable, how
ever, when a debtor state refuses or
leaves unanswered an offer of arbitra
tion or in cases of acceptance makes a
conclusion or compromise impossible or
after arbitration fails to conform to tho
award. It is further agreed that tho
arbitration question shall as regards
procedure bo in conformity with Section
3, convention for pacific regulation of
international conflicts, adopted at tho
Hague, and that it shall determine the
justice, amount of debt, time and meth
od of settlement."

The city has been districted and phy
