Sheriff of Luzerne County Asks for
Protection ? Important Developments
in Answer of Markle & Co.
SHENANDOAH, Pa.. Sept. 23.?The
few developments In the strike since
yesterduy were favorable to the strlkTl,nnnJIHnnnl
closed to-day In this region because the
number who reported for duty was not
sufficient to operate them. They are
the Park Place, Preston No. 3, and
Lawrence collieries. The Park Place
workings were In operation for a short
time to-day, but could not continue
with the small force. Within this city
but one colliery is working. That Is the
Cambridge, which, according to J. C.
McGinnis. of the Cambridge Coal Company,
has Its full complement of men.
Other collieries In the region still In
operation are the Bast, at Ashland;
Potts at Locustdale; Locust Spring, at
Locust Gap, and the North Franklin, at 1
Trevorton. The Bast colliery Is said to
be short-handed.
In Luzerne County?Hope to Prevent
Harchlnff by the Miners.
Markle Mines to be Suspended
HAZLETON, Pa., Sept. 25.?It was
learned to-night that Sheriff Harvey, ;
of this (Luzerne) county, has telegraphed
to Governor Stone, asking that
troops "be sent to this county, on the
ground that ho (the sheriff) cannot
guarantee the safety of persons or
property during the night marches of
the strikers.
It is believed that the sheriff is of the
opinion that the presence of troops will
prevent any further marching, thus lessening
the possibility of serious trouble.
The strikers met after midnight at
Cranberry, and when they reached
Tomhlcken they were stopped by Sheriff
Harvey and thirty armed deputies,
who went to that place on a special :
train. The strikers then scattered In
different directions and began missionary
work In preventing mine workers
from going to the Potts mines at Tomhlcken,
Derringer and Gowan. They
were successful in preventing a large
number of men from going to work and
in consequence the Derringer and
Gowan mines were crippled. Four of
the marchers were arrested, charged
with breach, of the peace. There was
no conflict between the deputies and
the strikers. Rhone Trescot, a coal and
iron policeman, says he saw President
Mitchell and "Mother" Jones on a hill
at Derringer, directing the movement
of the men. President Mitchell denies
Most Important Development.
The most Important development
here to-day outside of the request for
troops, was the answer of G. B. Markle
& Company to the demands presented
by the firm's employes ten days
ago. The answer Is not considered satisfactory
by many of the Markle employes
and what action they will take
at their meeting to-morrow Is not certain.
There is much talk among them
to-night. In favor of a strike. The firm
flatly refuses to grant the demand of
the men for a five and ten per cent advance,
announces its willingness to pay
the men semi-monthly, agrees to arbitrate
the question of cheaper powder,
refuses the dcmunds of the driver boys
and engineers for more pay, promises
to adjust grievances relating to the
carrying of men and tools down and up
the slope In mine cars, offers the timber
men a new scale for propping which
Is lower than the rnte asked for, agrees
to build powder houses so that the men
will not have to carry the explosive a
great distance, and concedes the pillar
robbing grievance.
Given Time to Consider.
The Markle firm to-night announced
ujiii ui inu rcquei*i ui me mine workers
in its employ work will be suspendcd
to-morrow in order to Rive the men
an opportunity to consider the company's
answer to their demands made
ten days ago."
The United Mine Workers held a
meeting at Jcddo this afternoon before
the nnswer of the Markles had become
public property. Many of the Markle
strikers were present. The principal
speech was made by President
