THE COKE STJtIKE ENDING.
Striken GoIdr Hack to Work-All Will
lie Over Next Monday.
Scottdale, Pa., May 21.?Everything
to-day points to an early ending of the
great coke strike. The strikers are
weakening, and big breaks in tlicir
ranks are reported from various plants.
At Bedftono two hundred strikers returned
to work this morning. The mon
were dissatisfied with the results of
the Scottdale convention, and took u
vote and decided to go back. None of
the new mon will be discharged. Tho
deputies are being paid off to-day and
relieved from duty. Over eighty of tho
old men at tho Mammoth plant went in
to-day. Many idlo plants are also making
preparations to resume.
Thero was a small riot at the Valley
plant last night. A hundred Poles
started to raia the houses of the men
who had returned to work. JJan Shoup
and George Potterfleld "were handled
very roughly, and promised not to go to
work. Slioup has sworn out warrants
against his assailants.
By next aionaay it is uiougni an mo
plants in the region will bo in full operation.
Events of tho day show tho strikers
have had one too many burdens thrust
upon them. They stood up bravely in
the face of evictions that rendered hundreds
homeless. They were idle and
comparatively peaceful when hundreds
of imported workmen carno to take thoir
places. They faced evory sort of privation,
and did not murmur when the
promises of their leaders to provide
amplo funds wero not realized,
tint when tho leaders began to quarrel
among themselves, and began to sacrifice
the men rather than their position,
tho strikers beftan to rebel. La^o udvicoafrom
all points in-tbe regton-#?-to >
show a dozen new plants will start
within a week and though thousands
will remain out until thoir leaders order
them to return, thousands will apply for
work within.the next fow days.

reported, and the Assembly sojourned

annual reports to the General Assembly
will show:
The report of tho homo mission board
will show that, the fiscal year closed
with a debt of $100,000 hanging ovor the
work. The causes of the debt have
been the unexpected fulling off of
legacies, which were $100,000 less last
year than for tho yoar previous. During
the year the board oi education had
Uortor?fi/tft(*nnrtMntefi. na increase
of thirty over last year. Tlie total receipts

there is a deficiency, and with $8,700
debt hanging over irom previous years
tho board at the close of tho fiscal year,
April 19, was $16,000 in dobt.
Tho report of tho treasurer of tho
board of missions for frcedmen shows
just enough money on hand to pay ail
liabilities. The total receipts for the
year wero $135,078 13, which shows a
falling off, as compared with the
previous year, which is accounted for
by tho fact that during 1890 tho board
received $34,000 in the shapo of legacies.
During tho yoar 300 ministers
and teachers nave been supported and
$40,000 has been added to tho real estato

mooy?Witnesses on tlic Stand.
m
Excepting tho day Dr. GorrlBop wu
on the witness stand, yesterday was the most
interesting of the sixteen through
which tho Garrison trial has lasted. It ,
was even more entertaining than that
ono to mostot tho audience, for it seems
to be a delight to tho avorage human
being to hear ill said of one. Nearly
all tho afternoon was spent hearing
the testimony of witnesses from
Cameron, who were brought in to break
the character for truth and veracity of
J. E. Baker, who was on the stand for
tho defenso last Tuesday.
When Court adjournod in the evening,
tho State had closed its evidence ih '
rebuttal and Colonel Arnott assured the
Court that tho defenso would not occupy
moro than an hour this morning.
It is probable that tho arguments will
begin afternoon to-day.
David R. Brooks was placod opon the
Btand when court opened.?
He had no particular knowledge of
the ease. He ha'd gone to Dr. Baird and
asked him to let up in his persecution ' of
Dr. Garrison, and ho had positively
refused to do so. Mr. Brooks stated
also that ho had made every effort to
keep from being placed upon tho stand.
George W. Eobinson was put upon the
stand as tho first witness in rebuttal.
Ha was asked to detail a conversation
whirli ho was aliened to havo had with !sS
Dr. Garrison in January lost concerning
the anonymous letter Dr. Garrison had ' '
received and submitted to the United
States Postal authorities lor investiga- ;
tioiu
Colonel Arnett objected to the quesion
being answored, and the attorneys j v
argued the matter till ten o'clock; Cap- ,:
tain Dovener stated, a fow minutes after
ten, that the State had two witnesses ,
who wanted toco to Charleston at 11:20, /
and asked that tho discussion be
abridged, bo that ho might place them
upon tho stand in time to got their evidence
in and let them get off on time. V
Mr. Sommorville didn't seom at all anxious
that General Alfred Caldwell and
Deputy Marshal Georgo RobinBon, the
two witnesses, should testify and go to
Charleston also, for he went on and
talked as though he was just on the
verge oi eternity and had all of that
long, long day to spend talking. He
finished his argument at 10:30, and the
Judge overruled tho objection.
Mr. Robinson was asked: "Did Dr.
Garrison fnrnish any evidence and act
in conduction with those inspectors who
camefrpm Washington?"
Colonel Arnett objected and mads a
speech upholding it. .
Mr. Robinson said that Dr. Garrison
put tho investigation on foot by sending
the letter to Washington, ana that it
came back hero with two inspectors, and
that ho furnished the hand-writing of SSj
Dr. Baird and Dr. Campbell and Georgo
Baird. "We investigated tho matter two
weeks, and I was instructed to go to
Dr. Garrison and tell him that tho postofQco
authorities had made tho invest!- - ' <
Sition. and had concluded that Dr.
aird had nothing to do with the writing
or inspirating of tho letter, and for
him to keep quiet and he would get another
letter and that would help the
authorities to find out who did it." Mr.
Bobinson said tho reason ho gave Dr.
Garrison for . believing that Dr.
Buird had not written tho letter wtu
because it was in Dr. Balrd's language,
and tliut some one clso had used bis language
to make it appear that Dr. Baird
had written it. Dr. Garrison then agreed
to await till an investigation of another
man was mado.
Captain Dovcner asked who that man
was, but Col. Arnett objected and th?t
mattor was dropped.
