After two day of conferences In New York city between the an thraclte coal mine operators on one side and the governor and senior aena U,r of New York and tbe two senators from Pennsylvania on the other, the strike of the United Mine Workers ot America is apparently as far from a sell lenient as the day It was declared Governor Odcll laid before the op ciators the proposition that if they would concede to tbe miners an ad vance of 5 cents a ton In the price paid for milling coal ho would promise that tile miners would resume work. Being to'd further that the oonces slon would carry with It recognition of the mineis' union, tbe operator! promptly refused to entertain th proposal and took their leave. Replete at its opening with promise of a solution of the struggle between the I'nlled Mine Workers of America and the operators of the anthracito propei tlc3 in Pennsylvania Thursday closed without apparent appreciable progress toward an agreement upon ihe Issue.- in the controversy. Most noteworthy of the day's events was a conference at the office of Sen ator T. C. Piatt, at which there were present among others, the two senators from Pennsylvania and Ihe governor of New York arr.l nearly all the presi dents of the big corporations control in it the anthracite field. There were conferences during the day In which President Mitchell and men of more or less consequence In the Industrial world participated, but the.ie, so far as information obtainable goes, were as barren of results as the principal meeting, details of which are given out on the authority of one who was present. In brief, there has been no change In the situation so far as it might have been affctte.l by the gathering In New York cf labor leaders, mine operators and public men. Government Crop Report.

Bradstrect's says of the state of trade; Cooler weather has brought the coal supply question home to millions of people, and discussion of this hss dwarfed all other matters In the public eye. Annoyance and extra expense to manufacturers rather than depres sion or real suffering to the great body of the people are as yet the main r ults. Soft coal of foreign and domestic origin, oil and gas have taken the place Df anthracite coal with surprising little friction. Iron smelting alone of all the great Industries has been seriously rurtaileJ, though brick manufacturing ha- suffered and small "hand" laund ries have been crippled. Including furnace employes in East ern Pennsylvania, brickmakers In and r,.;- n,B Uii.lson vnllcr nil a larre number of coal handlers at tidewater docks, not to exceed 20,000 men, ot only one-seventh of the number ot actual strikers, have been rendered Idle. Aside from the fuel scarcity it ma be truly said that every business pros pect pleases. Fall jubbing, though necessarily not so active as earlier. Is really better than anticipated. Re orders note difficulty of fulfillment, In dicating lack of depressing stocks Spring trade advices are better than usual at this date, and predictions aa to the coming holiday business are op tlmietic. Business failures for the week end ing Thursday, Oct. 9, number 170, as against 164 last week, 183 In this week last year, 210 In 1900, 164 In 1899 and 233 in 1898. Will Test Their Claims. This Is the week which It Is gen erally believed w'.il put to a test the claim of the operators that they will o enabled to start up their collieries if given protection and the countet claim of the United Mine Workers or ganlzatlon as expressed In Wednes day's resolutions that the Btrikers will not return to work without concessions even though the entire military force of the Vnltcd States should be here to protect them. With a determination to prove their claim, the operators bave been foi the past week making a supreme effort to secure men. That they have suc ceeded to some extent Is evidenced by announcements mado with some post tivenres that various collieries will re sume operations in the course of a few days. The United Mine Workers' leaders continue to assert that the military can do nothing towards inducing men to return to work and that all men who could be Induced to go back to work without concessions are already back. Strike dlsordeis are now almost wholly absent. During the past two days the sobliers have had nothing to do further than their regular patrol duty, not a single call having come to any ot the three regiments in this county to deal with either disorder or threatened disorder. General Stewart Commander. The greater part of theafternoon ses sion of the Grand Army encampment on Thursday, Oct. 9, was devoted to the election of national officers, the result being as follows: Commander-in-chief, General Thomas J. Stewart of Pennsylvania; vice commander-in-chief, W. M. Olin of Massachusetts; junior vice commander-in-chief, James M. Averill of Georgia.

Four candidates were placed in nomin ation: General Stewart of Pennsyl vania, General John C. Black ot Illi nois, Gen. Daniel E. Sickles of New Yoik and Colonel John McElroy ot the District of Columbia. General Sickles withdrew before the vote was taken and himself seconded the nomination of General Black. The first ballot resulted In the elec tion of Ceneral Stewart, the vote be ing as follows: Stewart 467, Black 272 and McElroy 83. The encampment came to a close Friday and San Francisco was chosen aa the next place of meeting. Commander-in-Chief Stewart has announced the personnel of the new council of administration. It Is made of one member from each department. I. J. Cunimings is named as the mem ber from New York. Hill Opened Campaign. The state Democratic campaign was opened Saturday night in Brooklyn. The Academy of Music, in which the meeting was held, was completely filled with an enthusiastic audience that listened to speeches by David B. Hill, Edward M. Grout, George Raines and others. Mr. Hill In his speech as serted that the cost of living had in creased while "the accumulations of wealth have accrued to the coffers of the few rather than to the pockets of the many." The coal question Mr. Hill declared to be a national one, saying: "If It Is not, why did the president himself recently Intervene and summon pri vate citizens to the White House for conference and exercise bis official Influence In regard to a matter over which he had no jurisdiction? He was not acting under any statute He had no authority for any legal Interference on his part. He himself has made It a national question and he and his party are now stopped from otherwise regarding it. Senator Hill also discussed the ques tion of the election of United States senators by the people; arraigned the administration of Governor Odell on the score of extravagance and de clared that the Democratic party had never presented a better ticket for the suffrages of the people. Killed In Socialist Riot. The compulsoty closing of a Social ist club at Gibraltar within tho Spanish lines resulted In a riot In which five of the rioters were killed and several wounded.
