Trouble Indicate That the Strikers

SETTLEMENT TO BE ATTEMPTED
Through the Mediation of Archbishop
Ryan?No Violence Reported. |
Better Feeling Prevails,
HAZLETON, Pa., Sept, 24.?Contrary
to the expectations "of both the operators
and the striking coal miners, there
were no developments In the strike situation
in the Lehigh region to-day. It
was thought, in some quarters, tha: j
owing to the presence of troops in the ;
anthracite Holds, a break would occur
in the ranks' oC the strikers, or that a
large number of additional men would
refrain.from going to work. The operators,
as a rule, predicted a break In
the strikers' ranks, and the labor leaders
were equally sure that they would j
tie up this region tighter than ever.
To-night both slde3 claim they made |
good gains. It seems, however, from j
the most reliable reports received to- I
day from the entire region that the
strikers made a net gain In point of
numbers. The M. S. Kemmor colliery,
at Sand Run, on the north side, was
tied up to-day, but the operation is not
a large one.
Many Stories Afloat.
There were many stories afloat in re-,
gard to the situation at the Lattlmer I
mines. The strike leader* asserted
that the colliery at that place was
completely tied up at that place, but
when a representative of the Calvin
Pardee company, which owns the mines
was asked about the situation there, he
said the colliery was running about as
usual, and that only about fifty out of
one hundred employes had failed to go j
into the slopes to-day.
President Mitchell, in discussing the
situation in the entire strike region tonight,
said:
'Reports received by me to-day from
the lower anthracite (Schuylkill) region.
indicate that at least 2,000 mine
workers joined the strikers to-day. A
large number of these came from Che,
Reading company's'-mlnes. In the Le- |
hij?--. region we made largo gains. I
have not received definite figures, but
I should judge that the nuinlJOr hereto- j
fore working and who did not go Into j
the wines In thlr. rof?)|>n. Vo-day, num-'
bercd between 600 and 700. !
Meetings Bore Fruit.
"The meetings held on Sunday by the
United Mine Workers, at which men |
who had not struck were strongly
urged to help in the light, bore fruit.
As a whole, I feel more encouraged than
I have been at any time since the
strike begun, and I am confident that
within the next few days the entire anthracite
coal field in Pennsylvania will
be idle. At no place to-day did we lose
a man."
In regard to the efforts of Archbishop I
Ryan, of Philadelphia, to bring about a
settlement through arbitration, Mr.
Mitchell said:
"Archbishop Ryan will call upon the
presidents of the various railroads
which have mining interests in this region
at the request of the United Mine
Workers, and will tender his good offices
in the struggle. If the officiate
refuse to meet His Grace, It will certainly
demonstrate their insincerity in
publicly declaring their willingness to
irum wiui men men.
When Mr. Mitchell was asked if the
striking minora had received any benefits
from the United Mine Workers of
America since the strike was inaugurated,
he simply said "no."
No Change in Situation.
There is not the slightest change in
the situation in regard to the settlement
of the labor war.
Considerable Interest is attached to
the answer the firm of G. B, Markle S.:
Company will make to the grievances
presented by its emplycs. Thfc linn
has intimated that it will make worn?
sort of a concession to the men. but refuses
to soy what it will be until tomorrow,
when the ten days in which
the firm was allowed to make an answer,
will expire.
The entire Hazleton region was extremely
quiet throughout the day, not
a single case of violence being reported
from any town. A better feeling now
prevails, and the fear of trouble seems
to be disappearing.
The battalion oftho* Eighth regiment,
which arrived at McAdoo, five miles
from here to-day, and which made a
demonstration In that town and surrounding
country, returned to Shenar:
tloah at 4 o'clock thla afternoon.
Miners Join the Union.
SHENANDOAH. Pa., Sept. 24.?
George Harris, national organizer of
the United Minn Workers, arrived here
to-day from Mt. Carmel. At that placo
ho addressed a meeting which he says
was attended by ft,000 mine workers and
that "3,000 of them Joined the union.

He was very pronounced In his opinion
thnt the anthracite miners will .win.
"Behind them," he said, "Is unuttera- "V
ble want. They have been hungry so
long that they will suffer nothing- uncommon
from protracted idleness. It
is pitiable to see the suffering of the
men and their families because of paltry
wages. I speak from what I have

NEW YORK, Sept. 24.?Senator Ilan- s
na reached this city this morning direct
from Cleveland. He was welcomed
to Republican national headquarters by t(
Cornelius. N. Bliss, Senator Scott and j(
Committeemen Munley and Gibbs. Mr. c,
Hanna saJd he would remain in the ^
city for a week, possibly longer. Of (j
the situation from his view-point, ?
Senator Hunna said:
"I find that tbc much-talked-of apa- 0
thy of Republicans is being dissolved, a
and that the dormant interest of the a
voter at large Is being aroused to the .
necessity of working. The* opening of
the campaign throughout the entire u
country has had much to do with this
enliven! interest."
Senator Hanna denied the published
interview to the effect that he had said
Mr. Croker would be given a cabinet c
position In the event of Bryan's elac- b
tlon. tt
No Estimnto Given. a
He also denied that the national committee,
cither here or in Chicago, had a
given any estimate concerning the u
electoral vote, and said that no estlmate
would be given. He refused to
discuss the coal strike.
senator Hanna was asked concerning
his recent statement that there were
no trusts. He answered:
"I repent Lhat all the organizations, g
or combinations of capital that were
arnonable to the law, and that had the
power to oppress the people, have been
suppressed and have been dealt with
according to the law. They do not now
exist, and If any did exist they would
be dealt v.ith as the law In such mattors
demands."
Concerning the challenge Issued by lc
Chairman Edmlston. of the national v:

v/ith him on any of these matters he c
would be accommodated. He added that a

Throwing Taunts at America?British
Press Suggests That Germany's
Course is Unwise.
LONDON, Sept 25.-3:30 a. m.?A.
semi-official announcement has been Issued
In St. Petersburg that the European
cablncts ore engaged in an endeavor
to Induce Germany to abandon
her demand for the surrender of the
Instigators of the antl-forelgn outracps
as a preliminary to peace negotiations.
According- to the Berlin correspondent
of the Dally Express, Germany will
make a new proposal, namely, that the
great powers form an International
court to try the Chinese officials accused
of complicity In the outrages.
The Morning Post has the following
from Its Shanghai correspondent, dated
yesterday:
"The Russians recently organized an
expedition towards Mukden, which has
already reached Llao Yang, about midway
between NIu Chwaung and Mukden.
It will probably encounter opposition."
The British and continental press is
still discussing America's reply, which
Is generally regarded as encouraging LI
Hung Chang to delay the negotiations.
General Grlbsky, military governor of
Amur, has Issued a proclamation de
be a punishment for the attack made on
Blagovestchensk.
Taunts Thrown at America.
A semi-official communication to the
Cologne Gazette disavowing any desire
on the part of Germany to execute the
Instigators of the outrages on tne
strength of the testimony of the foreign
ministers, says:
"The international court of Justice
would decide upon the question of guilt,
and would pronounce sentence. To look
on complacently while a mockery of
Justice, such as the Dnited States demands,
was being demanded, would
mean a renewal of Uifc massacres."
Commenting upon the reproached
which the Cologne Gazette and other
papers have levelled against tho United
States, the Berlin correspondent of the
Times says:
"Whatever may bo-thought of the attitude
of iho United State?, it hardly
seems wise from a diplomatic point of
view to hurl these taunts at a nation
which experience has shown Is by no
means in the habit of pocketing or forgetting
such attention."

Jury Commenced.
FRANKFORT. Ivy., Sept. 24.?'The argument
to the jury in the case of
I j nines iiowara, cnnrgeu witn being ft
principal In the killing of William
Gocbel. began tills afternoon and will
conclude to-morrow morning. Carol
Little, for the defense, referred to Ooebel
at all times as "Governor Goebel"
In the most respectful manner and
condemned his assassination vigorously,
but appealed to the jury not to punish
an Innocent man. He said he did
not doubt the shot was fired from the
secretary of state's office, but there
was no proof that Howard was In
there.
Col. T. C. Campbell, for the prosecution.
argued that Howard's defense,
an alibi, having been annihilated by
the evidence of the prosecution, was
equal to llndlng him guilty, as there
was also evidence that he had been discovered
running away from the building
immediately after the shooting.
Congressman W. C. Owens closed the
case for the defense to-night, and Judge
"Williams will conclude for the prosecution
to-morrow.
