A E Charlie Lee, Released From Jail, Returns to His Bailiwick. Tlfe Foriuct; Mayor of Philadelphia's CMiuitoMii Welcomed Bock liy His Friend Say He Will Make It 'Warm for HIh Knemlew Well Treated While In Durance Vile. " PHILADELPHIA, April 11. Some of the . choicest -spirits of the Chinese colony cel ebrated last night the release from Moy amen'sing prison of Charlie Lee, formerly Mayor of Chinatown and one of its wealth iest merchants. Prior to the advent of Lee Toy, Charlie Lee was the ruling pow " or among the Race Street Celestials. He - owned tea shops, merchandise shops, and laundries. His word went among his countrymen as second only to the dictum of the Chinese Union, the "august tribunal that sits as a court of arbitration to ad just the disputes of the local descendants of' Confucius. But according to Charlie's own story, he ran up against an Influential .coterie of the Rev. Frederick Poole's Chi nese Mission and the contact resulted in 'his undoing. In March of last year all Chinatown was thrown into consternation by the arrest of their leader at his own headquarters, at 820 Race Street. He was charged with conducting a gambling joint. Before Judge Sulzberger he was convicted and sentenced to imprisonment for one year. It was the sftru conviction for gambling in Chinatown in a period of ten years. Charlie Lee was released yesterday 'morning, having leceived a commutation vof one month for good behavior. He went IJmmediately to the City Hall, where he called first upon Superintendent or Police Quirk and then upon Captain of Detectives 'Miller. His object was to asswre them of "his innocence and his future good inten 'tions, and to talk with them concerning the alleged wickedness of his enemies. His return to the Race Street colony was In the nature of a triumph. HU im prisonment had evidently elevated him in the consideration of his people. Hereafter it will be nlpand tuck between ChRrlie Lee and Lee Toj. for there cannot le two mayors in the same block. The "gohen." or reception, given in hon or of the persecuted leader, was started COAL-MINES SUSPEND. yj I"!!"!!!! in the evening. In the merchandise J the operators agreed to meet the miners. oarly shop of Quong luen Hong, at S22 Race Street. There many of the leading Chi nese merchants and laundry owners of the city gathered about the released prisoner, tmoking and drinking tea and offering protestations of renewed fealty. From the Hhop the party went to the restaurant of .'die Hong Low. a cousin of Lee's, at No. !J3. The plebeian dishes of yock-a-rain and chop-suee would not do for this occa sion. Li-wo-opp and vow -wo-gung, at a dollar a throw, genuine importations from (Ihina, were the features of the menu. In talking of his case. Charlie Lee claimed that the whole trouble arose over the question or proprietorship of a house on Race Street where he wished to open a merchandise shop. The Chinese Union de cided in his favor, but the other contest ants were not satisfied. One of them, Charlie claimed, was a member of the mis sion, and so the influence of that body was enlisted against him. Rev. Mr. Poole himself appeared for the prosecution at his trial, and his evidence apparently con vinced the judge. "But I was innocent," protested Charlie, who speaks excellent English, "and Mr. Poole never met me until he saw me in court. I met him on the street this aft ernoon and he did not recognize me I have been in business here in Race Street for twenty years, and before I have been here much longer my enemies will be sor ry for what they have done." Charlie Lee liked his treatment in pris- A General S?Alfe Suddenly Ordered M lrJHtlinrK, Md. FROSTBURG, Md., April 11. The situa tion in the George's Creek coal fields took a sudden anUunexpected change, when a general suspension, iwas ordered for 12 o'clock tonight. It was not generally be lieved that a general suspension was so near at hand. In fact, the impression was abroad that the proposed meeting between President C. K. Lord and the committee of Consolidation employes and business men would have the effect of deferring any definite action by the delegation which was to meet in Frostburg today. It was not known that the strike was so near at hand until Organizer Warner left the hall at the end of theK session, when it was announced thathe had ordered the call for a general suspension to be- placed upon a bulletin board. Some forty delegates, representing the miners of the George's Creek and Meyers dale regions, came to Frostburg and as scbled in Nickel's: Hall at 10 o'clock and again at 1 o'clock, and finished their work early in the afternoon. The?e delegates were chosen In accordance with the in structions given at the Lonaconing mass meeting for the purpose of conferring with the coal operators if the operators should consent to (hb "Joint meeting. No reply was rpoelved. from the operators and the following was "announced as the result of the action of thov delegates: We, tlic dcltirates acmhpd in Nickel's Hall, riostburg, Apiil 10, acting li the authority c-X-td in Un In tlie resolution adopted by tl" mass meeting of the.

The miners in general claim that they can win their strike. .-cy say that th re is $15,000 in the treasury of the Uni ed tion," it is claimed. District President AllenBarber said that the. men felt that they were treated badly after having their sixth appeal for a conference ignored. It Is believed the miners are In position to hold out for a long period. A Lonacon ing man here i-aid the average financial worth of each miner of the region was about $1,000, and that nearly all own their Mine Workers for the aid of ..the region. J own homes.

In order to save a great deal Of coal from being lost by the idleness of the miners is another reason advanced by the miners 33 in their favor for a capltulat.on on the part of the operators. The miners are strike the organization allows each mar ried man $7 a week and each single man $3 for sustenance. President Barber stat ed that almost the entire region has been unionized Organizer Warner said that of the 4 400 miners not more than 500 were non-union men. Reports have reached this city of large amounts being deposited In banks to the Tedit of the organization, but no one is found to authenticate them.

A FIGHT FOR RECOGNITION. The lien Nsnr in tlie Miirylnnil Conl Mine Strike. CUMBERLAND. Md.. April 11. The ac tion of the miners' committee at Frostburg yesterday in ordering a general strike was received with general regret here and is almost the sole topic of conversation. One gentleman familiar with the region said he believed it would end in the miners go ing back to work at 45 cents instead of 55. which they have been receiving since April 1. Another George's Creek man said the miners would win. All concede that it is not so much being granted 5 cents a ton extra as it is the recognition of the organization, which all along the operators have stoutly refused rents or guardian, sworn to, must be pre- j to do. It is said that at one time a ma bontod. Inrltv of the comnanies were bent on rec- very iew ers since the present troubles and the op erators are said to regard him as a dis turbing element. It is said the miners de manded that Mr Warner be one of the committee to confer with the operators and the latter would not listen to it. It is generally believed that the mines will be closed and that no attempt will be made to import outside labor. Coal will likely be purchased in outside territory to fill a few compulsory contracts.

In fact, he sajs the Dewey boom will be shor' lived, if it is not already a corpse, and that under no circumstances could It inter fere with Mr. Bryan's candidacy. When asked what he thought of the anti-Bryan sentiment which is growing, especially among the Democrats of the East, Chair man Jones said: "I have heard something of anti-Bryan conferences and such things, but I doubt if there is anything in It.

CHICAGO, April 11. Several of the largest firms in the city have decided to prohibit their employes from smoking ci garettes. This is the result of the cru sade started by the Anti-Cigarette League, which has decided that the best way to make war against the evil Is through the employers of large numbers of young men and boys. The firms and corporations which have taken hold of the cigarette question are the Chicgao, Burlington and Quincy Rail road. -Montgomery Ward & Co.. Heath & Mlllig.tn Manufacturing Company, and Hibbard, Spencer & Co. Eleven hundred employes, of whom 600 are boys under eighteen years of age, are affected by the novel step taken by these concerns. The employers assert that they have forbidden their employes to smoke cigarettes for these reasons: Customers are annoyed by the odor which lingers about a cigarette smoker. A boy who smokes cigarettes is unable to ren der the best services, physically and men tally, to his employer. He is nervous, his mental growth is stunted, his memory be fogged, and hie Intellect is not alert. In extreme cases, the smoker Is demoralized and his honesty affected. Each of the companies and firms named has taken incisures to see that the prohi bition is observed out side of working hours. A man has been delegated by each concern to tvatch out for violations of tee order. Dismissal is the punishment for repeated offences. Victor Lawson, of the "Daily Xews and Record." has also Issued an order prohibit ing editors, reporters, printers, or any body in his newspaper office from smoking This firm has been established since lhSl. In 1899 Mr. Leding rented his present store, fitted it up most handsome ly, and put in an entire new stock of jjoods, with the hopes of interesting tlie buying public. Unfortunately the support received has not been suflicient to carry on the business, ex cept at a heavy loss. JOHN H, FRENCH, Auctioneer. HOURS OF SALE: Morning. KKJO to 1 I'. M.

(I'rcni the Clerland Plain Dealer ) The order of Chief Moore, of the Weath er service. lorbiddlng the use ot cigar ettes by the employes of the department, is worded in a way that seems calculated to arouse the gravest suspicion in the ! minds of the public at large. From what ' the chief saj3 of the gravity and perni cious effects ot the cigarette habit it will , be entirely natural to conclude that there is some connection between the weather conditions and the baneful little fumers. j We may even go so far in carrying out i this dark supposition as to take a leaf or two from the diary of a weather observer, 1 local or otherwise.
