Pa., Oct. 2 It was ex l'cted In Borne quarters that yesterday would bring a turning point In the strike, bat nothing came to the surface that would lead to any Indication of the strike nearing an end. Since the operators began to hold conferences President Mitchell Is receiving more In formation than formerly and giving out less. That he knows more ubout the situation than he cares to tell is hardly doubted by anyone Ho haa practically admitted that he received advlce3 from New York aa to the doings uf the operators. There Is Btlll a lack of anything tangible on v.-hleh to base the report of on iminedi ate settlement. President Mitdhell con tLnues to deny that he knows anything nbout it. The strike situation in the Lehigh Valley showed a change in favor of the men. Several hundred men quit work at the Calvin Pardee mines at Lattl rner as the result of persuasion on the part of 4d0 marching strikers, and at Oneida and Cranberry the coal compa nies lost additional men. No colliery was closed down in this region yester day. ADVANCE OFFERED. Operators I'uit Notion drantlutf 10 1'cr Cent Ionroaie to Miners. PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 1. An offer of 10 per cent In miners wages was yesterday Inaugurated by the Philadel phia and Reading Coal and Iron com pany and this move it is stated will be followed on Tuesday by similar notices at every colliery in the anthracite re gion. It is expeoted by the operators that this Increase in wages will be satisfac tory to the men and they believe many of the strikers will take advantage of the offer and return to work. Mining operations will In this event be given an Impetus and the operators expect there will then be a gradual resumption until the collieries will again have thtdr full complement of employes. The Philadelphia and Reading com pany operates 80 collieries and of these J7 have been shut down owing to th Insufficient working forc4. Whether the miners will accept the offer of the company and return In suf ficient numbers, to operate the mines :.in not be foretold. Reports received from several points In the Schuylkill region where the Rending collieries are located rather indicates that the r.tinj workers will follow the Instruction of their organization oflkials and remain away from the mines. President Mitchell of the United Mine Workers received no notice of the Inten tion of the operators to offer the In creases in wages and the Intimation is thus given that the miners organiza tion will receive no recognition from the operators." STRIKE AND POLITICS. Bemitor Ilnnnn friys tho One Hear No Itrliitlon to tlto Otlior. CHICAGO, Oct. 2. Senator Hann.i arrived here yesterday from the East. In the afternoon he met the reporters. "Any man who would put a straw In the way of a settlement of the reat coal miners' strike now progressing In Pennsylvania should be taken out to the nearest lamppost and hanged," said Senator Hanna. "I do not want to talk about the strike. I do not think that it should be mixed up In party or political ques tions, and should, not be discussed from a political standpoint. No one should be permitted to use it for political cap ital. It Is the duty of every man to do his utmost to end the deplorable trou ble. "I nm going Jo do everything In my power to win this eWHon for McKinley and Itoosjvelt, and I believe we will win, too, but I will not give estimates of states or predict majorities. I will remain In Chicago during the remain der of the campaign and will make no speeches outside of this city. Here, however, I may address the laboring men several times. I like to talk to the working-men. They can understand me and I understand them." PUBLIC DEBT. Monthly Statement For September Show l-oron of Our Six Million-. WASHINGTON.

VOTING MAChTnELEGAL. ' Tint Cum In Cltpmung EmM In Victory For tlio Marliuniriil Vote Recorder. NORWICH, N. Y., Oct. 2. -Supreme Court Justice A. II. Sewell yesterday denied the motion on tho part of O. M. Robinson, chairman of the Democratic county committee of Chemung, for an order requiring Mayor Frank H. Flood of the city of F.lmlra to show cause why ballot clerks should not be appointed in that city for the coming election. It was a test case brought for the pur pose of testing the legality of tho use of certain voting machines at general elections. Roswell P. Moss of Elmlra argued the case for the relator, and Herbert M. Lovel, city attorney of El mira, George F. Yeomans of Rochester and David Hays of Rochester appeared for the defendants. One of the Standard voting machines such as are used in the city of Buffalo, Rochester and Elmlra was set up in the courtroom. The relator contended .that the machine 13 Illegal In that It does not provide for votes to be oast separ ately for each of the presidential elec tors. The defendants, on the other 'hand, called nttentlon to section 1C2 of the election law, which says that voting machines may be provided with one ballot in each party column contain ing only the words "presidential elec tors," and that a vote for such ballot shall operate as a vote for all the pres idential electors of that party. The large expense to the citie3 that had adopted voting machines in event of the change back to the old ballot system was brought to the tit'entlon of the court. The relator declared uncon stitutional that part of section 102 of the election law mentioned In that It deprived voters of the privilege of split ting on presidential electors. The court in rendering its decision said that inasmuch as an appeal to the court of appeals would probably be taken In any event and because of the short space of time Intervening be tween now and election he deemed that an early decision would be preferred at once, denying the motion.
