rSPrCIAl. TELEGRAM TO TnUJISPATCn.!
Columbus, April 23. A circular was
issued this afternoon by John McBride,
President of the Miners' Progressive Union,
addressed to the miners of the United
Slates. It sets forth the attitude of tbat or
ganization as relates to the recent abortive
attempt to secure a scale ot prices through
joint action with the operators, and the re
sponsibility for the subsequent steps that
have been taken. Mr. McBride regrets the
failure of the joint conventions to establish
rates, because it threatened to disrupt the
Larmomous relations between the employers
ana employes. He then refers to the offer of
the summer rates of last year's scale by the
miners and the offer of a 5 cent reduction by
the operators; the subsequent offer by the
operators of a 2 cent reduction, and his ad
vice that it be accepted, and the action at the
tie bays this ended tne matter so iar as lue
National Progressive Union was concerned,
and no mter-htata agreement has been made
or recognized by it. Mr. McBride reviews the
joint convention held at Pittsburg April 16.
and says tuat although the Knights of Labor
delegates were told bj the operators that they
would not recognize their organization, only
one of tbem had tbe manhood to insist upon
such recognition, and he was ruled out by the
HITTIKG THE KNIGHTS.
He also says that two of the Knights of
Labor delegates were not miners, one of them
being a school teacher and the other a lumber
yard employe. The Knights of Labor dele
gates agreed to accept the reduction proposed
by tbe operators, although they knew tnat the
miners of the Pittsburg district had decided
to accept no reduction, and that the Pro
gressive Colon delegates from Ohio and Pitts
burg district had rejected the offer. Mr. Me
linite criticises the expressed willingness of
John B Reaand Robert Watchorn to accent
summer rate-, though they had denounced the
Pmsressivo Uniottlor voting for tbem.
He denounces as false the statements of those
gentlemen that the officers of theXational Pro
gressive Union had advised tbe acceptance of
a 2 and d-cent reduction: that delegates came
instructed to accept the former, and that tbe
Peunsjlvania delegates were outvoted. He
savs the operators of tbe Ohio and Pittsburg
districts had been dealing with the National
Progressive Union, and had submitted the 2
cents reduction to their miners through that
organization, and that bad it been accepted the
operators ot both districts, being alile inter
ested in the lake trade, would have received
the same consideration and treatment.
Rea and Watchorn, he says, and their follow
ing sbonld have done as the Ohio delegation
did. refuse to accept the operators' proposition
without the consent of the Pittsburg miners.
But, says he, they have been playing the part
of demagogues. They consented to ignore
their organization and'treat with operators as
individuals or non-union men. which he de
claics a disgrace to organized labor.
Mr. McBnde says that miners' officials are
supposed to know concerning the complex con
dition of the coal trade, and to be better in
formed as to the organized and financial condi
tion of the miners in the different districts that
compete with each other than are the miners
who work day after day in the mines. It is for
this reason thev are required to advise and di
rect, and the official who remains silent when
his advice is needed, simply because he fears
cnticim, is unworthy the confidence and sup
port of hoifcst men.
He says that in his circular of April 9 he ad
vised his organization "to accept the 2-cent
reduction, not because more coal would be
mined and sold: not because either you or J our
employers w ould be directly benefited bj tbe
reduction, but because tbe amount involved
was so small that it was not w orth nskinsr tbe
destruction of tbe peaceful and harmonious
relations with employers, and the methods of
arnitiation and conciliation which had worked
so successfully and beneficially during tbe lat
three years, and through which strikes, with
their consequent hardships to miners and their
families, had been avoided."
Mr. JicBnde civts further reasons for ad
vising tbe acceptance of tbat proposition, men
tioning tbe fact of miners working at lower
rates in tbe Pittsburc district, and adds: "I
also said when advising you to accept that the
operators' proposition was almost equivalent
to tbe summer rate of CO cents in Hocking and
74 cents in Pittsburg fields. The evidence in
my possession proves this. There is almost
three-fifths of tbe entire production of the two
Acids mined during tbe summer months, and
the balance dunng the winter. The miners
averaged less than 500 tons each last year.
Upon tbat Basis each miner produced 300 tons
in tbe hummer. This at a reduction of ?
cents means a loss ot $7 50.
THE flGUISES FOE IT.
Dunng the winter each miner produced 200
tons. At an advance of 2 ceuts over summer
rates this gives a gam of Si The difference in
the j ears wort: gives a loss to
each miner of S2 50, or Jf cent
per ton upon the 500 tons mined. I again
say this amount is too small to stand in tbe
way of a peaceful settlement, and that it would
have been better had you allowed your desires
to bend to this moderate demand than to risk
having your will broken and your prices fur
ther reduced by a conflict with your employers.
May 1 ends the present scale, and unless each
district now takes such action as is needed to
enable their miners to understand each other
and work together, our failure to secure an
agreed pnee for tbe commgyear will divide our
forces, and division of itself means loss.
The district Presidents should either have
their executive board map out a course to pur
sue, or call distnet conventions to decide. Ko
dependence can be put in tbe pledges and
promises of the officers and members of N. D
A. 135. We w ere loth to believe that any of
them had offered to work at prices lower than
the National Progressive Union would agree to,
as they were charged with having done by
3fr. Perry and other operators of Indiana, but
since other developments have been made in
me same line, i am inclined to believe them
guilty as charged.
A HUNGARIAN KOW
Results in the Murder of One of tbe
Schaxtox, April 23. The miners' strike at
Marshwood,on the Mousic mountain, about
eight miles from this city, was eterday after
noon the cause of the murder of Mike Cronick
by Mite Genko. The men were laborers and
both Hungarians. Genko accused Cronick of
colonizing men to take the strikers' places, out
of which an excited quarrel arose.
Genko wanted Cronick to come ont on n
street and fight the matter out, but Cronick
refused, and Genko entered the house and shot
his opponent dead m his bedroom. The mur

Newaiik, O., April 23. A remarkable rail
road engine boiler explosion, singular because'
It was attended by no serious Injury to the
trainmen, happened to-day one-quarter of a
mile above Utica, on the Lake Ene division of
the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. The engine
was No. 712, William Glenn, engineer, and Orie
Courson, fireman. The train started from here
on time and reached Utica, 12 miles north.
Nothing defective was noticed about the engine
and she was carrying a full head of steam.
Suddenly there was a terrific report and the
fragments of iron were sent in every direction.
The boiler had let go just between the dome
and the belk teannc the boder all to pieces.
The report sent a thrill of horror through
those close by and startled the passengers. The
fireman leaped tnroush the cab window like a
flash and fell into a pile of dirt by the track,
while the engineer got out as Dest he could.
The fireman only received a slight cut above
the right eye and an injury to the left wrist. A

HE TE1ED DYXAM1TE
As a Persuasive Power on the Cashier of
n California Bank.
Ventura, Cal., April 23. To-day at
noon a bold attempt at bank robbery was
made by a man named McCarthy, who was
recently discharged from the County Hospi
tal. He entered Collins & Son's bank while
the cashier, Collins, was gone to lunch,
leaving Jack Morrison, alone. McCarthy
entered and complained his poverty and
desperation which had drawn him to think
of suicide. He laid a package on the coun
ter, which he said was dynamite, and drew
a six shooter and demanded S30.000. Mor
rison dodged behind the counter and ran
out of the bank door. The robber then
seized a tray containing about 4,000 and
walked into the street.
Morrison gave the alarm, and the people
gathered in the street, but no one was
armed. The thief had a horse hitched near
the bank and was making for that. The
Sheriff happened to be near but was with
out arms. Hi stepped into a hardware
store and seized a shotgun, when the robber
suddenly surrendered. The money was all
recovered except $20, which was probably
lost on the street.
