" 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.

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:

This call will close down all the mines
in the George's Creek region employing
over 4.000 hands.
Frederick Dllcher. of Nelsonvillc. Ohio, a
member of the National Executive Board,
said he expected the strike to procure f r j j
the miners of the region their demands. In J
order to do this, he says, they wi'l have J.
the aid of 300,000 members of the United j
Mine Workers, as well as the- help of the , f

consented to meet the miners, as request
ed, the agitation would have ended with
out a call for suspension, and the compa
nies are to blame for the strike.

of contention whether the owners of a

to have control of its management. It is
claimed by some that the suspension of

of control rather than wages that is being
fought for.

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

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.

Chicago JiliMineNH KirniH Prohibit
ICiiiplojcs .Smoking Them.
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

This firm has been established since lhSl. In 1899 Mr.

These unwelcome visitors usually appear in the spring or summer, when the blood is making an extra effort to free
itself from the many impurities that have accumulated during the winter months.
Carbuncles, vrhich are more painful and dangerous, come most frequently on the back of the neck,
eating great holes in the flesh, exhaust the strength and often prove fatal. Boils are regarded by soma"
people as blessings, and they patiently and uncomplainingly endure the pain and inconvenience under,
the mistaken idea that their health is being benefitted, that their blood is too thick anyway, and this is;
Nature's plan of thinning it. The blood is not too rich or too thick, but is diseased is full of poison and
unless relieved tlie entire system will suffer. The boilor carbuncle gives warning of serious internal
'troubles, which are only waiting for a favorable opportunity to develop. Many an old sore, running ulcer,.
even cancer, is tne resuii oi a ncgietieu uon.
