1IAZLETON, Pa.. Oct. 1.?Although
the labor leaders positively said they ^
cild not fear a break In the ranks of the ^
anthracite coal strikers, they were r
nevertheless pleased to learn that the ll
10 per cent advance granted by the c
3'hlladelphla St Reading Coal and Iron a
Company In the Schuylkill valley was P
totally ignored by the striking mine a
workers to-day. It was predicted that
many of the strikers would return to
work under the belief that the 10 per ^
cent increase would be the limit of the a
operators' concessions, but the unanlmity
of the men in deciding to stand out a
for a further advance caused many re- ^
marks of surprise. I was expected 8
in some quarters that to-day would
bring a turning point In the strike, c
but nothing came to the surface that c'
would lead to any indication of the 1
strike nearlng an end. Since the op- r
erators began to hold conferences, President
Mitchell is receiving more information
than formerly and giving out
I Knows More Than He Will Tell. ^
That he knows more about the situation
than he cares to tell Is hardly
doubted by any one. He has practically
admitted that he receives advices g
from New Yoric as to the doings of the
operators. There still Is a lack of anything
tangible on which to base the report
of an Immediate settlement. President
Mitchell continues to deny that ho
knows anything about It.
The strike situation In the Lehigh
valley showed u change In favor of the
men. Several hundred men quit work
on the Calvin Pardee mines at Lattlmer,
as the result of persuasion on the
part of the 100 marching strikers, and
at Oneida and Cranberry the coal companies
lost additional men. No collieries
were closed down in this region toCAIN

I PHILADELPHIA", Pn? Oct. 1.?The "
mine operators of the. "Wyoming, Lacka- ^
wanna and Lehigh regions to-day, at a a
meeting at "Wllkesbarre, followed yesterday's
action of the Reading coinpa- i<
ny, in offering an increase of 10 per cent G
In wages to the mine workers. They o
furthermore decided to reduce the c
charge for powder from $2 75 to $1 50
per keg. The latter price has prevailed
at the Reading company's mines
for a long time. < 1
The action of the Wllkesbarre meeting
means an Increase of 10 per cent to ail g
mine workers except miners. The latter
will earn an Increase of about 10 per
cent by reason of the reduced cost of *
powder. p
The meeting was attended by repre- d
sentatlves of all the leading railroad
companies which own mines In the re- c
glons named. Some of the Independ- 1
ent operators oppose the proposed In- c
crease unless the coal-carrying companies
reduce the tolls on their product to n

result there jwere fewer collieries in op- j

than at uny time since the strike was
In the other regions there were also i.
hddltlona to the strikers' ranks.
Notices of the Increase In pay wore c
posted throughout the entire anthra- "
cite region to-night, but the opinion is c
general that few If any of the strikers
will return to work: The strikers say *
they have other grievancos to be ad? *

recognition of their union.

M'COOK, Neb., Oct. 1.?Governor
Roosevelt's first day In Nebraska may
be regarded as successful, though the
morning started out wet and chilly and
the audiences as a necessity, were
small.' Thirteen speeches were made
during the Journey to-day and to-night.
Probably 30,000 or 40,000 people were addressed
during the day. Governor
Roosevelt's special train remained at
McCook until late In the night, when It
pulled out for North Platte. To-morrow's
Journey will cover a distance of
six hundred miles and will Include within
(lint (llotunna HVx
morrow night a Journey will be made to
Broken Bow, at wjilch point the train
will arrive at 8 o'clock In the morning.
FALLS CITY, Neb., Oct. 1.?Governor
Roosevelt's party reached this place at
S:20 a. m. The morning was rainy and
the ground water soaked, but the inhabitants
were at the station to hear
and see Governor Roosevelt, and there
were many wagons and carriages which
brought In farmers and their families
from the surrounding country. Governor
Roosevelt, In the course of his remarks
"I noticed the other day that Mr.
Bryan snkl that the Republican party
had no right to claim the benefit of the
fact that pork and wheat and corn had
gone up. He was speaking of hogs at
tho tlmo Th? ?{/I
four years ago that If its policies wore
adopted those articles would go up. Its
policies were adopted and they have
gone up. You can proportion the responsibility
between the evidence and
the Republican party as you choose,
giving th: Republican party its share."

BEATRICE, Neb., Oct. L?When the
special Roosevelt traln-atrlvcd. at Au-.
burn a heavy rain made the contemplated
outdoor meeting impracticable,
and Governor Roosevelt was hurriedly
driven to the opera house, half a mile
distant. The governor made a. ten minute
address to an audience that filled
the building. He said In part:
"During the past four years your
home products here have Increased 45
per cent, your beef products have Increased
sixty per cent, and yet we were
told four years ago there would be hard
times If the Republican ticket was
ejected. The value of your household
goods has gone up 20 per cent, mortgages
have been reduced 40 per cent,
and your savings accounts have Increased
by 35 per cent. Now you should
judge our opponents by their prophecies
not one of which have come true and
Judge us by our prophesies which have
been fulfilled."
Court House Square Pilled by Crowd.
At Teoumseh, Governor Roosevelt
was conveyed to the court house
square, which was filled with people
where he spoke In the open air. He said
In part:
i wjini xo can your attention to one
of two phases of this contest. There
are doubtless among you men who
fought in the great civil war, who from
1801 to 1SC5, earned the undying gratitude
of their countrymen and conferred
undying honor upon the Mag. I mean
the veteranB of the great war. Naturally.
when tho call to arms came In
189S in a community like this, with men
and women like this In it, you sent your
sons promptly to the front. No wonder
that you raised your company instantly
and that It was not able to take one in
ten of the men who were ready to volunteer
and who were sent off in the
Second Nebraska from this town. Now
I ask you to spo to it that the men in
Washington do not undo the work done
by your sons and brothers in the Philippines.
Soldiers Called "Hirelings."
"Tour governor has recently spoken
of the soldiers or the regular army as
"hirelings," as "flfteen-dollar-a-month
hirelings." I have fought boside those
"hirelings" at Santiago. I saw the First,
the Third and the Sixth White cavalry
and tho Ninth arid Tenth colored cavalry
go up the hill. I flaw them leave
behind them 300 - dead and wounded
"hirelings," 300 men who have shed their
blood for the honor of the ling?300 men
who died that wo might be proud that
their country still held In honor the
ling. And tho reward is that the?c men
should bi?sncoredatas"hlrellngs." When
you sent your jeglment to the Philippines
Its colonel died. He came from
the rogulnr army. It was Colonel Stotsenborg,
who wrote a new name on the
honor roll of American history, who
conferred honor not only on your state,
but on all the nation. Is he to be referred
to an only a "hireling?"
Men Walking: in Idleness.
"It Is but a few weeks since Mr.
Bryan himself spoke of the soldiers as
n hundred thousand men walking about
in Idleness. Stotsenberg no longer walks
about In Idleness. The men who wero
In the Philippines, who stuyed there
no longer walk about in Idleness. General
Lawton no longer walks about In
idleneKS, nor does Llncomb or Riley,
who died at Tien Tsltj and Pekln. They
have found rest where their comrades
from 18G1 to 18G5, who gave their lives
for their flng, have found rest. Woe to
the country that has lost Its capacity
to appreciate the sacrifices of the gallant
souls who do and dare and die for
its honor and Its glory. Of all ungenerous
thliiKS the most ungenerous is to
deny the proper ineed of honor to the
soldier, whether volunteer like yourselves
,or the regular, as Colonel Stotsenborg
was. Woe to the nation which
refuses to give the proper meed of
praise to such men."

Tho Victim Is John Lawler, of Grafton,
Who Was Trying to Avert

II A disastrous freight wreck that has
blocked the fourth division of the Baltlmore

" night at 8 o'clock, at RoseDy's Rock, In
e Marshall county, about fifteen miles
from Wheeling. One life was lost, and
two other men are badly injured, one of
whom may die.
The trains that collided were freights,
No. 84, from Ben wood Junction, castn
bound, and No. 99, from Grafton, west
a bound. Train 84 was to have sidon
tracked at Roseby's Rock to allow No.
il 99 to pass, but the engineer evidently
forgot or overlooked his orders, as he
it pulled out from Roseby's Rock without
side-tracking. The rear brakeman
r. of No. 84, John Lawler, started over
? the train for the engine to warn the
t engineer that he was rushing on to cerr
tain death, but Lawler had not gone
half the distance over the cars when
