HAZLETON, Pa., Sept. 17.?The strike ;
situation to-day may be summarized
thus: Over ton thousand men are still
out. with no apparent prospect of settlement,
sporadic outbreaks of violence
are occurring near the outlying collieries
and the withdrawal of troops Is not only
without consideration, but the guard
lines of several of the camps are being
constantly strengthened, and the wisdom
of bringing more cavalry Is being
discussed. Co I. Case, of the Fourth regiment.
and Col. Magee, of the Eighth,
are both complaining of lack of cavalry
to cover the large extent of territory
under their commands, and It was said
to-day that If the soldiers are kept here
much longer the Sheridan troop of Tyrone,
attached to the Second brigade,
will be ordered out.
A captain of Gen. Gobln's staff Is authority
for the statement that an uneasy
feeling prevails at headquarters In
nt ihrt llttlA nY?fhrpftka of
tint past few days and the indication
they hold of the underlying disturbance.
The brigade commander himself admitted
to-day that the action of raiding
women was giving him much perplexity.
He does not care to use force against
them and has Instructed the soldiers in
case of necessity to use only the flats of
their sabres upon the Amazons. The
story reached the general that many
men were In the attacking crowds yesterday
and to-day. disguised as women.
The strikers no longer disperse when
troops appear in their territory, and today.
while a body of the Eighth regiment
officers were taking a look over
the Honeybrook district, a burly Irish
woman who stood at the head of a crowd
of foreign women and men, shouted:
"Say, captain, divide your guns with
us and we'll give you a h? of a fight."
The soldiers ignored the challenge.
61milar taunts have been thrown at
bodies of military in the Drifton region
as well.
Attacked hy Women.
This morning's violent scene at Audenreld
was almost an exact repetition
of yesterday's at the same place. It
arose from another attempt to start the
Monarch and Htar washeries of the Lehigh
& Wilkesbarre company. About
100 men reported for work at the former,
when the wild band of women swooped
down on them with an armament of
sticks and stones. Others were stationed
on top of nn adjacent culm bank,
whence they showered missiles upon the
would-be workers and a large body of
men and boys waited In reserve behind
the bank.
The men promptly quit work before
any injury could b ? int1iet?d. At the
Star washery where 10C of 135 men wanted
to work a like assault stopped them.
Nn further attempt was rnad?* to work
the cars or washery. A squad of the
governor's troops went to quell the disturbance.
but all was quiet when they
arrived, except that a rabble of women
hooted and cursed the mllltnry, who
made no regions?. The call for troops
which came from Cranberry at '1 o'clock
th!s morning wns the act of a seared
night watchman, who mistook soldiers
for strikers.
^All the dynamite that can be found in
me region is uetng collected nnu Bioreu
In Turnbach's powder house, to keep It
fmm th? hands of the miners, and 100
men from the Ninth regiment were sent
over to guard the house. The watchman
naw the lights and moving figures,
lost his nerve, and telephoned that an
attack was threatened.
(inni l? NlreiiKlhiMtrri.
Late last night another territory was
turbulent. A body of miners at Lattlimr
No. - quarrelled among themselves
and bloodshed threatened, when
company E of the Thirteenth regiment,
which Is camped at Lattlmer, restored
quiet. Thy colonel of the regiment
said to-day that he feared trouble
and had strengthened the guard and
organized a special system of signals
that will get the soldiers In readiness for
action within Ave minutes.
Deputy Coroner Bowman will begin
the Inquest over the bodies of the dead
miners at 2 o'clock next Tuesday afternoon.
Over a hundred citizens will be
examined. County Detective Eckert
said that several of these are being kopt
In hiding. One of these was a deputy
who did not take part In the shooting,
but was hurrying to the scene wh'*n
it nrcurred. This man says, according
to the detective, that the deputies kept
on Kh ctlng when the strikers were two
htindr l yards away. Mr. Eckert added
that the evidence of live of the
woimd'-d corroborates this allegation.
('"'n <lobln will not Interfere with tomorrow
night's big mass meeting unless
highly colored speeches are made.
The only change In the strike sltuaHon
proper to-day was the return t<?
work of the f.OO men employed at Coxe's

WASHINGTON, Sept. 17.?At to-day's W|
cabinet meeting which lasted over two e
hours, the situation In Alaska was die- B
cussed. Secretary of War Alger had a
rvport from Captain Hay. who has Just c
arrived at St. Michael, which furnished fl
the basis for the discussion and the n
eourne which was decided upon. Captain
Ray's report was In the nature of an 11
urgent appeal for troops to preserve \
peace and order during the coming winter.
There are a vast amount of stores
and supplies at St. Michaels and there Ik C
not a United States soldier in the whole aef!
territory of Alaska. After considering .|fl
the subject It was decided to send :i company
of Infantry to St. Michaels an sot?1 mfl
as possible. Secretary Alger will ar- lyr
rango the detail immediately and ho j,if
hopes to have the company tsall within fl
week, probably from Seattle. He has
not yet selected the officer who will be thi
placed in command nor does he yet know j
from what post the company will be nf
taken.
This action Is In effect the establish- I),c

INTERNATIONAL PATENTS. f,s

Amrrlca will Offer Changes In Ihe Treaty by
Now KxUtlug. ba
WASHINGTON, D. C.Sept. 17.?Com- he
11a
mlssloner Butterworth nnd Assistant
Commissioner Greely, of the patent of- we
flee, are preparing amendments to be pis
offered to the treaty regarding patents ^r<
existing among the leading nations of jor
the world at the international conven- ini
tlon in Brussels next December. hoi
As the treaty stands It provides that )
the citizens of each of the contracting thi
states shall enjoy In all the other states jyi
the same advantages that are given to Ut<
the citizens of those states. This provls- ma
ion works a hardship upon Americans nn
taking out patents abroad, as in some pic
luuiiiiii'n iu uituuii; iiic uiviiki vi n i>ui- nit
ont rlffht costs an American ns well as a l
citizen from $300 to 1700, while tho unl- wo
form rate in this country is $35. Tho ef- wa
fort will be to amend the treaty making th<
American rates to them equal to their cal
rates to Americans. the
There will also be an effort to restrict all
the articles which are patentable In this In
country so that the subject of another an
country cannot patent an article In tho pre
United States upon which he cannot ae- cai
cure a patent In his own country. otl
An amendment will be suggested on wh
behalf of this country so as to define Int
more clearly the right of priority and or
put Inventors of this country on the tal
same footing as those of other countries thr
where patents are granted, without the \
preliminary examinations which our lyi
law requires. th<

Id and savage scene, and was follow- n
by a wild and noisy retreat. The as- r
tant chief of police who was sleeping a
an adjoining room, w?s awakened s
the noise. Ho arose and ran to the f
Icony, tiring his pistol as a signal for p
lp. At the same time he called a poeman
who was In sight to make an

ituatlon in New Orleans to-day assumd
a somewhat more serious aspect than
;t any time since Sunday, when six of

ellow fever. At 6 o'clock this evening
he board of health officially announced
he appearance of eight new cases and
f these, one death, that of Seena Brau?er.
At the office of the board of health
o-day's reports were considered somewhat
surprising and disappointing.
The situation had so materially 1miroved
last night that it was felt that
>retty much the worst had come, and
hat the conditions would improve.
The report of the board of health at
Blloxi Xo-day says that there are nlneeen
cases of actual yellow fever under
reatment with diagnosis reserved as.to
welve cases. There were seven new
ases reported in the twenty-four hours
nding yesterday. The doctors at Mlixl
are tempted now no longer to class
ases as suspicious, but to come out
oldly and say that they are yellow feer.
The New Orleans board of health anlounced
to-night that many of the oldr
cases of yellow fever that have been
eretofore reported are rapidly progres>

CHICAGO, Sept. 17.?The prosecution
will rest Its case In the Luetgert case tomorrow,
after three weeks given to the
presentation of evidence against the
prisoner and four weeks epent In the
trial.
The prosecution will close Its case with
some strong evidence tending to prove |
the motive for the alleged crime. The i
state will endeavor to show that Infatuation
for Marie Simmering, the servant I
girl In the Luetgert household, was tha
cause of the murder. It will foe claimed j
that the big sausage maker desired to
make the girl his wife and that he pul
Mrs. Luetgert out of the way in order to I
permit his marriage with the girl. To
prove this Frank Blalk and Frank
riAr>*tm\,r, nm,Ortiroa nf T .not ov?rt. wh(l
have already testified In the case, will be
put upon the stand and will Rive evidence
relating to the domestic affairs of I
Luetgert. They are expected to testify
as to the fondness of Luetgert for Mario 1
Simmering and the Indignant opposition
to the girl's presence in the house made
by Mrs. Luetgert. The frequent visits
of Marie Simmering to Luetgert In the
sausage factory at unusual hours of the
night will be detailed. Roth men will
tell of seeing Luetgert chase his wlft?
upon one occasion with a revolver and
they will tell of threats which they heard
him make. With this evidence In, the
state will rest.
To-day was given up to technical evidence
and there was little of Interest In
the trial for the outsider.
When the trial opened to-day. the
cross examination of Prof. Dorsey was
resumed. He was questioned as to the
comparative nature of the seasmold and
femur bones of a calf, sheep and human
being. His answers were techlncal and
adroit. l>ut of a character that supported
his original Identification and testimony
with reference to the bones in evidence.

LONDON, Sept. 17.?Tho Westminster
Gazette this afternoon In Its financial article
comments upon the letter of the
governor of the ltank of England, Mr.
Hugh C. Smith, to the chancellor of the
exchequer, Sir Michael Hi ks-lieach. announcing
that the bank h prepared to
carry out what is permissible In its charter,
namely to hold In silver one-fifth of
the bullion held against ftn note issue
provided always that the French mint U
again open to the free Coinage ?.f silver
and that the prices at which silver is producable
and saleable are satisfactory.
The newspaper mentioned aayi: "Although
the governor's statement Is perhaps
meaningless so far as practice H
concossioned, it is to be deeply deplored
that the bank has budged from ltn principle.
It is not dignified for the old Lady
of Threadneedle street to flirt with the
bimetallic faddists We want gold
against our notes, and there Is no reason
why an old statute, passed when silver
> ? /m?li>alu ohoI'upI.ii
should bo refurnished nt the bidding of
those who tvant to disposeof allver. The
bank's reserve is not so large that It can
bo tinkered with. Moreover, by yl? ldln?
in those matters of principle we open tin?
way to the thin edge of the wedge. 1'
the throat is carried nut. what would
happen Is exemplified by the statemen1
of a trustee, who declared he would feel
compelled to sell his bank stock, and ac
close a risk."
The St. James Gazette says on the
same subject:
"The scheme seems to bo knocked on
tho head for the present; but the reception
of even this feeble announcement in
the city will have an effect anything but
favorable to the blmetallists. A substantial
element of Indignation arises nl
the feeling that the government and
the bank have been dolnv a little diplomacy
at our expense and for the advantage
of Americans. The United States
has done nothing to make such a risky
politeness to the silver men on our part
popular In this country."
The Globe Joining In tho discussion this
afternoon has this to say on the announcement
of the governor of the BanU
of England: "The whole scheme is Innovating
and mischievous. It seems to ue
wholly undesirable and even perilous tc
subject our monetary system to foreUr
influence through the government. If
as should have been done, the proposal:
of tho United State# ami France had beOK
handed to the directors without ofllclai
recommendation or pressure, it car
scarcely be doubted that the director#
would have firmly declined to further
mu prujeui.
