They Have tho Interests of Bitumin ous Regions at Heart Not Com petent to Govern the Hard Coal Miners An Answer Is Given to tho List of Grievances Strlko Not Probable. Wllkes-Barre, Aug. 17. It Is stated authoritatively tonight that the coal operators of the anthracite legion will not accept the Invitation of the United Mine Workers to meet In Joint confer ConiiollS i Mac? SCRANTON'S SHOPPAQ OENTER. Fortunate Indeed are the members of the .fountain Athletic Club, constituting the private base ball team of Mayor Julius Pleisch- man, of Cincinnati. They wear a gaudy uniform of blue, with the club name in red letters acrossthcir breasts, and travel only in Pullman cars! Once a week they are serenaded by a brass band, and they live on the fat of the land, with an occasional streak of lean, at a swell hotel, Their reefers are ornamented with showy pearl buttons. 0OS0?JK?JiXI5aC505S55CKJ? The World of Sport 5kkj:x$)jookkkjosk ono of last year's sturdy linesmen who will be 4back at his post. Most of tho colleges seem to have suffered by losing In tho Hue, but still remain strong In baek. At present all the college Holds are going through a course of general repairs rind, renova tion nnd by the middle fjf September wilt be In the best of condition for last year's veterans and husky Fresh men, new from 'prep', schools, to practice upon, and rehearse their technical manoeuvers. BROOKLYN still maintains tho National league lend and as things at present stand it looks ns though the season of 1900 will close finding Ilanlon's men the proud possessors of another pen nant. Pittsburg lias now gained on Philadelphia, nnd as the Quakers seem to have taken a slump it looks as though Clarke nnd his Pirates will probably beat them out. Boston has taken a now lease of life, nnd Is hot m Chicago's heels, nnd St. Louis, Cln jlnnatl and New Yoik lag along dis consolately bringing up tho rear. In the American league a beautiful contest Is going on, the four leaning teams being closely bunched and every day's games making some difference in ' the standing. The games In the cllles all along the circuit arc largely patronized, and the race for the pen nant Is the prettiest going on In any league this year. leads In total extra base hits and Brooklyn In stolen bases. Flick and Mcrtes, of Chicago, arc having a close race as to home run hitting honors, and nlso in base stealing. Jesse Uurkett Is hitting the leather with might nnd main of late. In "Wednesday's game with Philadelphia, he lined out a home run, a double and two singles. Short Stop Cargo, of Springfield, had an awful day Inst Friday and made siv glaring errors. Donovan, of Hartford, Is probably the crack pitcher of the Eastern league. He is farmed to the team by Brook lyn, nnd every batsman In the Eastern sincerely wishes that Hnnlon would recall him nnd work him regularly, as he 'has made nil of the smaller league heavy hitters look like sixteen cents. Donovan last year pitched for Richmond nnd was an enigma to all the Atlnntlo leaguo batsmen. YESTERDAY'S BALL GAMES NATIONAL IiEAQUE. Right From the Bat UMPIRE Cantlllon, In the American league, performed something sus piciously like a miracle the other lay by making Dummy Hoy, the cen ter fielder of Comlskey's Chicago White Stockings, speak. Hoy, ns all know, Is a mute, which, however, doesn't prevent his being a rattling good player. In n lecent g.um Cantlllon called Hoy out at first on a close decision. DlcU Padden, Buckley and others of the Chlcngos made a rush towards tho umpire, objecting fiercely, and Hoy strode up to him and muttered In a thick, guttural voice, "no, no," which Is about tho extent of his vocabulary. Cantlllon wasn't aware that Dummy could say even that much, and when ho heard the "no, no," his hair rose on the back of his head, ho gave a howl of "Heavens, I can make 'em all talk," and ordered the game to pro ceed. Pitcher Miller, of Detroit, Is ono of the crack twlrlcrs of tho American league, nnd has won fifteen of the last seventeen games ho pitched. Sumner Bowman, tho greatest pitcher who ever twirled for tho Uni versity of Pennsylvania, broke his arm In two places Wednesday, in a game between two amateur teams at Potts vllle, Pa. Christy Matthewson, tho Factoryvllle toy, who formerly pitched for the Y. M. C. A. and Honesdale teams, Is now on tho staff of the New York National league team. Matthewson pitched In the Southern leaguo this year, and his wonderful work In winning twenty one games out of the twenty-three he pitched drew the attention of Captain Davis, of tho Giants. Matthewson has not yet been given a fair chanco to demonstrate his ability, as he has not twirled an entire game, but has only been put In the box after ono of tho pitchers was batted out. It would not be a had Idea if Davis would allow tho big blondo to pitch a game now nnd then and relieve Carrlck and Haw ley, who are being worked harder than any two pitchers In the National league. Matthowson has tho ability to shine In fast company, and his friends are all watching his career eagerly. In addition to having a strong arm, fino speed and deceptive curves, Matthewson fields his position M-ell and' Is a fair batsman. Davo "Williams, of West Scrnnton, who formerly played on the Y. M. C. 'A. team and who twirled phenomenal ball for tho Sprlngvllle, O., team, last Reason and this, has been signed by the Buffalo American league team. Williams will have ai a companion . on tho team Dan ICervIn, tho young jouthpaw, who pitched In such splen- kdld form hero during the Atlantic league season, and who has been do- vvlhg wonderful work since ho Joined Buffalo. Burnham's left-handed find recently shut out tho strong Cleveland learn, letting tho hard hitting Ohloans flojwn with three little singles. Jack Shearon has been released by Buffalo and signed by Chicago. Another great game was played In the American league Wednesday, when Indianapolis and Detroit struggled for fifteen innings and finally the Hooslers won but by tho score of 4-2. Kelly, the Inalannpolls first baseman, accept ed 28 out of 29 chances, having 25 put outs, threo assists and one error. Milwaukee signed Abbatttchto, the Italian second baseman released by Minneapolis. ' Tannehlll, of Pittsburg, has won tho last nine games lie pitched, Wagner, of Pltteburg, leads tho Na tional league In extra base drives, and Is closely followed by Elmer Flick, of Philadelphia. Chicago leads the Na tional in two-baggers, Cincinnati In triples, nnd Boston, aided by that short left .field fence, has tho1 premier num , Ur of four-sackers. Philadelphia At ritlsburK n. H.

Among the Pugs THERE will be a fight that will be a battle worth the seelnc, whim McGovern and Joe Oans meet, If the match can ever be made Two of the greatest little fighters In the country will come together In the ring and for ten rounds do their best to put each other out of the game. McGovern will be handicapped In that his opponent will weigh In at 133 pounds, at least five pounds more of avoirdupois than the chunky little Brooklynlte will carry, and to offset this advantage In weight Gans Is compelled to knock Terry out In lcs thnn ten rounds. If at the conclu sion of this limited number of rounds McGovern ,stlll Is on his feet he wins tho title of victor and the lion's share of tho puise. Al Herford, Gans' man ager, Is trying to arrive at satisfac tory arrangements with Sam Harris, who looks after Terry, and has all ready his posting of a J2.000 forfeit. John L. Sullivan, despite his fall from the lofty pinnacle on which he formerly reigned supreme, is etlll the Idol of tho sporting people. Champ ions may come and champions may go. Fltzslmmons can wrest the proud title of king bruiser from Corbett nnd then lose It to the raw giant from the west, Jeffries, and now again make a bid for It., but none of the present gen eration of heavy weight stars has at tained the popularity or ever will that the mighty man from Boston ( enjoyed In the heyday of his strength and fortune. Arrangements are now being made for a great benefit to be given John I.., August 29. James Kennedy has turned tho Madison Square Garden over to the committee In charge (for the night, nnd arrangements are now being completed to conduct the affair on a very large scale. Subscriptions are pouring In from nil over the coun try and pugilists of all sorts and con ditions, big and little, are offering their services to add to the entertain ment. Senator Timothy D. Sullivan Is chairman of the testimonial commit tee. Sporting Squibs AMERICA'S prospects for secur ing the Olympic games In 1901 seem to be excellent, and tho numberless lovers of good healthy ath letics In this country, hall the advent of tho games with delight. When tho nnclent Olympic games were revived in '90, and held at Athens, no country took n greater Interest, In the sports or contributed more to their success than this country and It seems fitting that .the United States should soon be favored with this grand car nival of athletes of all nations. It was Intended to have he sports In England in 1901 and In Americn In 190S, but it Is likely that John Bull will relinquish his prior claim and concede the game to Jonathan. There Is no doubt but that a keener Interest will bo taken in the,sports If held on American soil, thnn In any other country, for It Is doubtful if there Is a nntlon on earth which takes the interest In athletics that Americans do. England alone can be mentioned In the same breath with tho states In the matter of admiration for athletics and athletes. And now we begin to hear the first notes of tho approaching football cam paign, and tho same press bureau which gives the report that tho allied forces are In great perplexity because of General Woo Chang's Inexplicable retreat from Fong blng, tells that Captain Pell Is expected soon at Princeton and that nn nlr of gloom pervades the entire college, owing tn tho apparent weakness of this year's llne-to-be. Pell himself, will be back at tackle, and will be about tho only American League. ChleiKO-MllwanVet llaln. Indianapolis 0; IlnfTalo, 1. Kinus City, IS; Minneapolis, 1. Cleveland, 7J Detroit, 2.

Eight scenes fiom "Robin Hood" will be given on the grounds of the Palmer homestead, for the benefit of the Glen- burn free library, at 4.30 o'clock, fol lowed by afternoon tea and light re freshments. The chaim of these sylvan doings Is very great. The piogrammo follows: SCENE FlItST. A glade In Sherwood forest. There, entercth Itoliln Hood's merry men, singing. "Wo roam and roe in Sherwood's groc be neath the grtenwood tree." SCENE SECOND. Ilout with tho quarter stall bctnUt Little John and Will Scarlet.

King Itlehard and queen Elinor come riding into Sherwood and summon Itohin Hood and his merry nien forth to drio the imader from the shores of old England. 4 A PECULIAR INCIDENT. ence to discuss grievances. The oper ators will say that there are no griev ances to discuss. A list of nnswers have been prepared by the operators In reply to each grievance put forth by the convention of United MIno Workers held In Hazleton this week. In the first place, the anthracite operators say that the anthracite miners nre governed by western men, who have the Interests of the bitumin ous regions at heart and not the In terests of the hard coal region. In tho second place, there Is an ap preciable difference In the conditions of bituminous und anthmclto miners, but alwnys In the formei's favor. There is a renson, of course, but the opera tors In the anthracite are not resuon slble. There Is u greater demand for soft coal, and In consequence tho miner engaged In tho west works a greater number of days and Is paid n higher wage. Anthracite Is the better coal, but the fact remains It Is not In demand and perhaps It Is considered a luxury, as It Is not used only when It becomes an actual necessity. - The price per car has not been re duced In years, they are numbered and ths dockage does not exceed 4 per cent, at nny of tho collieries. It Is nbsurd to say that It reaches 25 per cent. Sooner than take 25 cars from an out put of 100, the companies would tell the man his services were no longer needed, There are printed rules, which vary according to the vein. In some veins the coal Is dirtier than in others. A man Is suspended for one day when his coal contains slate or dirt In excess of 200 pounds per car. In veins where the coal Is very dirty, the companies allow S00 pounds to tho car. For the second offense the miner Is suspended two days, third offense, three days, and so until if the miner shows no disposition to clean his coal ho is discharged. It Is not correct to say that a miner has no representa tion in the matter of dockage. Tho companies side-track his car, unload It and pick out the slate. He Is at liberty nt nil times to stand by and Inspect the work during its progress. Answer to Grievances. 1. We have not Incrensed the weight of coal sent out In a car, because for years wo have Insisted on six Inches topping at the breaker, but no more than that. 2. Tho prices vary for certain kinds of work, as, in fact, they should. Tho price from narrow works runs from U t) $2.50 per yard, according to tho x.M In which such work Is being done. It Is not optional with the mine forem.in to fix a price. We have a schedule which we Insist shall be observed by every mine foreman and any devia tion therefrom Is met with the punish ment It deserves, even nt the sacrifice of an otherwise competent foreman. 3. Our rule has been to deduct no wages for stoppages less than twenty minutes. 4. In this vicinity coal Is not paid for by the ton, but In the Schuylkill re gion It Is. Tho miner there, however, when he speaks of the legal weight, 2,240 pounds per ton, falls to add that this weight is what obtains on the scales ready for shipment.
