The letter has been turned over to tho At torney General for his consideration. Wilcox claims tho mine -workers are nn unlawful combination restraining the public from securing coal.

Senators Piatt, Quay and Penrose and Governor Odcll lemalned at the Fifth avenue hotel over night, and In the breakfast room this morning tho gentlemen Inform ally discussed the situation and out lined the program for today. The Senators and Governor Odell maintain the reserve which character ized them yesterday, and would not tell what pressure they were bring ing to bear on the operators to force them to end the trouble. There are any number of guesses as to what occuired yesterday. The one that leceivcs tho readiest belief is that tliicnts hnvo at last been resorted to In order to bring the operators to terms. They wore told, It Is said, that if they did not recede from the position or suc ceed In opening the Pennsylvania mines, and produce coal In large quan tities within the next six days, Gov ernor Stone will call n special session of the Pennsylvania Legislature, which will specially create n state commis sion. This commission, It is further said, will at once produce coal under the right of eminent domnin. Theio is no confirmation of this view other than that as tho opcratois filed from the conference yes terday, every man was scowling and angry. If they were not threatened, they at least had heard things they did not like. Early this morning a statement was made In Wall street which indicated that the operators would not jleld. Tho statement was said to be their ofilcial low point of tho situation. It follows: "Wo were subjected to further poli tical pressure, but it did not and will not work." Some of the operators express the opinion that the situation is more, com THREE-CENT BEER And Slim Profits Brewery JTo tho Editor of the Democrat: In last night's issue of tho Dally Democrat and tho Press I noticed that a number of Akron saloon keepers are going into tho brewery business on the co-operative plan, for tho puipose of manufacturing their own beer. Bhould tho salooulsts who have this project in view Investigate as to tho final result of such an organization, and not permit themselves to bo duped by jwlld-cat speculators, they would learn that no such an organization which lias been in business for any length of time has made a success. Wo alieady have two brewery plants In Akron, and quite a number of out- side brewers are selling their product in the city. We now have too many saloons, Without forcing an increase by compe tition of salooulsts with brewers. When ealoonlsts go Into tho brewery business, ''We Arc Going to Says Chief of Police John Dmkln was a happy man Friday morning. "Wo ore going to nunc," ho snld.

John Mitchell was up nnd. about cany at the Ashland house this morning. Ho declined to talk of the situation at present. He didn't seem In the best of humor, possibly Indicating that things weie not going just light. Shamokln, Pa., Oct. 10 A crowd 'of foreigners attacked a Heading coal nnd iron policeman this morning, who was escorting a half dozen non-union men to work at the Henry Clay shaft. Tho strikers hurled rocks and clubs at the officer as well as at tho men The policeman emptied his revolver at the mob, and sevcial Hungarians emptied shotguns at him. Ho escaped unhurt. A company of soldiers dis poised tho crowd. " ISow York, Oct. 10. A conference in Senator Piatt's office, which Goornor Odell and others attended, ended at 1:10 this afternoon. No fomal state ment was given out, but Gov. Odoll and Senator Piatt said an adjournment had been taken until next Tuesday Nothing had been decided upon, they said. Senator Piatt said that by next Tues day tho public would know whethel or not there would bo a settlement. During the coal conference, J. P. Mor gan was asked by newspaper, men if he would attend. "Is thnt any of your business?" "We consider It is our business." "Well, don't consider it so," said Mr. Morgan. "Were you represented at yester day's conferences or will you be rep resented nt any today?" was asked. "Is that any of your business?" "Is it truo tliat you have done any thing to block conferences?" was put to Morgan. "Now, you know that is not truo," was his reply. New York, Oct. 10 Tho first cold snap struck Now York today, and peo ple got their first taste of what tho coal famine really menns. Thoro was a drop of 127 degrees in the temperature between 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon and 5 this morning, when the ther mometer registered 40 degrees. Overcoats and heavy wraps were in evidence everywhere among the hurry ing throngs this morning. Whilo tho cold wavo Is not severe enough to causo actual sufforing, It is a foretaste of what is to come considering that coal Is $25 a ton and scarce at that. If a Co-Operative Is Started. they force brewers to go Into the saloon business, which will bring about the salo of beer to tho consumer at perhaps three cents per glass, whetlv or there be much profit or nono. Al leady wo havo saloons in tho city tra der tho control of breweries who pur chased the premises and own the fix tures, all because saloonists would not purchase, their beer, and this means that they are here to stay. Our homo concerns have thus far not gono Into the saloon business and sa looulsts can not complain by reason of tho fact that they havo not been fairly dealt with. Such a project would certainly be of no benefit to our city, but on tho con. trary, a dotrlracnr, nnd I trust that before going into such a venture our salooulsts will digest the samo from a common sense standpoint.

MANIAC Murdered Mother and Children. Insane Over a Right, Patent A Homestead Boy Committed an Awful Crime. Pittsburg, Pa., Oct 10. Tho strain of perfecting an appliance for patonts on an air biake which aro pending in Washington, D. 0., turned the mind of Charles Cawley, aged 17 years, an Inventor of Second st, Homestead, and led him to commit one of the most ap palling ciimes this section of the state has ever witnessed. With an axe at'S o'clock this morning, the maniac mur dered his mother, one slstor and hacked four other children so badly that thoy wilt probably die. He tried to kill his two brothers but was discovered by one of them who managed to wrest the axe from him and turned him over to th police. The dead aie: Mrs. Hanna Cawley, aged about 40 years, head and upper portion of body almost pounded to a Jelly. Belle Caw ley, aged 12 years, who slept with lier mother; head frightfully battered. The Injured are: Joseph, the baby of the family, aged 15 months; head and chest battered. Will not live.. Adeline, aged 0 years, head battered, will not recover. Raymond, aged 0 years, twin of Adeline, head horribly injured and will not livo. Agnes, aged 10 years, head crushed, will not livo. Tho Cawley family occupied a neat six room house on Second ave., Home? stead. Last night all tho members retired about 10 o'clock. Mrs. Cawley and Belle occupied one bed whllo tho others, Joseph, Adeline, Raymond, and Agues occupied other beds and cribs in the same room, which Is on trie second floor, rear. Charles the murderer, his brother James, aged 20, and Harry, aged 14, oc cupied tho front room, second floor, adjoining their mother's room. Some time shortly before 3 o'clock Charles arose and dressed himself, without awakening any of the sleeping family. He did not put on his shoes, but stealthily went to the cellar and so- cured an axe. Ho then returned to the sleeping apartments. A small lamp burning low stood on n table in tho mother's room. All of the family were sound asleep and the only noise that broke tho stillness was their breathing, The maniac first attacked his mother, swung the axe with such force that with the first blow the skull was crush ed. Tho mother evidently never knew what struck her. Her demented boy thinking that his first blow did not do its work, pounded the already dead mother's head almost to a Jelly. Belle, the oldest daughter, slept un disturbed. Charles then struck her with the axe. The first blow slipped nnd awoke tho girl, but only for a second. She did not have time to scream for the next blow killed her. The maniac then pounded her head as he had his mother's. The bed and bolster were saturated with their blood. The othors were attacked in the same way. James, the oldest brother, at last awoke, and after n strugglo captured him. New Elks. Messrs. R. P. narvey, W. Oliver Wise, R. W. ICoerner nnd Chas. Wash er were initiated by Akron lodgo of Elks, Tuesday night. The lodgo is making plans for a number of social sessions. THE WEATHER: FAIB TONIGHT) WARMER.

WILL REMAIN No Removal Theological Alumni and Banquet Assignment of Preachers For Sund ay. Judging from tho expressions of the delegates Friday at the Reformed syn od, the Theological Seminary of tlie Reformed church will not be removed from Tiffin this year and perhaps not at all. The sentiment for removal is not as strong this year as it was at the meeting of the synod one year apo. The advocates of tho removal to Day ton or Cle eland point out the advan tages and greater opportunities of a large city. They also state that now environments arc desirable after four years spent at Heidelberg unhorslty. There seems to be, however.among most of the delegates a stroug love for their old alma mater in its present location and a change Is not desired. The main reason for keeping the seminary at Tiffin, howeer, Is thnt a favorable in ducement has not offered itsolf in either Cleveland or Dayton. The college spirit and love for the alma mater of the Heidelberg grad uates Is second to that of no college in tho state. Friday morning a num ber of the alumni of Heidelberg uni versity decldid to hold an alumni ban quet at tho Windsor hotel at 8 o'clock Saturday evening. It Is expected that there will bo not less than 100 present and tho numbor may be greater. At the morning session of the synod, Friday, a request was made that the alumni of Ho'delberg university be allowed four representatives on the. Board of Trustees of that institution. Tho matter was referred to a special committee. The visiting ministers, who will fill city pulpits and the places where they will preach Sunday, are as follows: First Congregational, Dr. J. I. Swan der, Rev. H. S. Gokelor; First Church of Christ, Dr. 0. E. Miller, Rev. S. E. Nclkfrk; First Bnptlst, Rov. Geo. Beam, Rov. J. H. String; Trinity Lutheran, Dr. E. P. Hcrhruok, Dr. A. E. Balch loy; First Methodist, evening, Dr. A. K. Zartman; Trinity Reformed, Rev. E. D. Wottoch, Rev. D. S. Fouse'and Rov, Fred Cromer; Woodland M. E Rev. N. B. Matties, Rov. F. S. Znugg, Wooster Ave. Reformed, Rev. C. M. Itohrbacher, Rev. S. E. Zuepp, North Hill M. D., evening, Rev. Dr. G. H. Sander; St. raid's Lutheran, Rev. A. Shuman, Rev. E. E. Young; German Reformed, S. E. Klopfenstein. The rt,ii)rts of committees occupied the morning session of the Women's Missionary society. Three new socie ties have peen added and 125 members during tho past year. Eight hundred dollar more has been raiRed this year than in any previous year. Rev. S. S. Snyder, of Sendnl, Japan, delivered a missionary addiess this afternoon, Rov. Ft W. Lclch, of Cleveland, who was n1 delegate to the central Ohio synod of the German Reformed church brousht tho greetings or mat synod to the synbd now In session, Thursday afternoon. Rev. Sir. Lelch said that ho felt highly honored in being tho bearer of greetings from ono synod to another nnd that ho brought tho best wishes of the Central Ohio synod to the Ohio synod of tho Reformed oburcfa-lu Ohio. During the address AT TIFFIN of Reformed Seminary. tho raemb'ors of the synod remained standing. Treasmer J. H. Borsch, pf the Or phan's Home of the Reformed church at Ft. Wajno, Ind., spoke briefly con cerning tho institution. He stnteJ that the Institution, was one which, while it was outside the district of the Ohio synod, neertheless was of more than passing Interest as Beoii children from the Ohio synod were ut the institution. Dr. S. S. Miller spoke nt some length on "Ministerial Relief." Ho related briefly the histoiy of the organization, which antedates the declaration. At (list only tho widows of ministers weie aided but in 1810 tho organization took in aged niinistcis as well. "Now every nged and needy minister of the Reformed church in the United States Is entitled to relief," said Dr. Miller. "It is a worthy cause and the finan cial contributions havo not been too much. Biethren, I ask you to give this matter serious consideration." A resolution to have an anti-polygamy clause incorporated in the na tional constitution will come up for no tion late this afternoon at the session of the Women's Missionary society. There seems to bo little doubt of Its unanimous passage. It Is tho inten tion to sond a petition to Senators Hanna and Foraker, and to every Con gressman in tho state, requesting them to work for the anti-polygamy amend ment. The annual election of officers will mark tho close" of the largest meeting the society has ever held. No Homes In Pagan Lands. , At the Thursday eveulng besslon of tho synod, a missionary program was given by the Women's Missionary so ciety of tho Ohio Synod. The feature of the program was an unusually In teresting address by Rev. Fred Cromer, of Columbiana, who has just returned from China. Ho said: "There aro no homes lui Asia, Africa, India or China. There can bo no homes where Jesus Christ is unknown. The trend of pag anism Is toward the destruction or home ties. In China men look upon women as an inferior thing. There alio has been stamped with tho marks of inferiority since the beginning. In early life boys and girls sometimes have tho same privileges. Later girls are uuw anted and un welcome woman. Girls are dls of In three wajs: rir-at, by In fanticide, which Is largely practiced today; second, by rearing manlago,, whon girls are bound out at a tender age; third, by being sold Into perpetual slavery. Darkness and filth are found In the Chinese homes, w hcther they be tho residences of tho bankers or tho abode of coolies. The mother-in-law may be hard In America but In China she is infllnltely. worse nnd the dauglv tor-ln-lnw suffers. Tho only hope of tho uauguior-in-inw is tuat sue may some day become a mother-in-law. Suicide among the women because of the hor rors of slavery is common. Whero vo mnn Is Inferior, whero womanhood is destroyed, there can be no home, nnd no man or race Is civilized that de giadcs or destroys womanhood." Mrs, H. S, Gekelor read a paper on LOOK OUT For Worthless Stock In That Don't Exist. Mines Chicago, Oct. 10-Worthless mining stock, to the amount of $100,000,000, is to be floated In the United States this winter, If tho Information glean ed by Edwin B.

THE CODE May Be Finished Next Week. A Deadlock Occurred Late Thursday And Conference Committee Ad journed Till Monday. (Special Correspondence.) Columbus, O., Oct. 10 It Is now pret ty certain that the special session of the Legislature will continue a week longer than was expected. The con ference committee got together early Thursday evening, after a hard day's work, nnd very unexpectedly adjourn' cd until next Monday morning at 0 o'clock. No good reason for this action could be given, but It was taken with out a dissenting voice. This adjournment will of course de lay the report of the committee until well along in the week, and will con sequently delay the final action of the assembly on the code bill, nnd equal length of time. There wns a stir when the civil service feature was reached late yes- torday. Mr. Guerin was for his own plan as inserted in the House code by him, but Senator Patterson fought it with all his might. Mr. Cummlngs sided with Mr. Guerin in Its support. After considerable controversy an agreement was reached In the matter of tho department of public works. It was to the effect that tho depart ment should conslRt of a bi-partisan board of two or four, appointed by tho mayor, Instead of a single head. When It came to the consideration of the department of public safety, there was a hitch in the bi-partisan board movement. The vote on the question stood five to five. Tho committee ad Jouined at this point ARTHUR 0. JOHNSON. DONATIONS Have Been Generous- Recipients Grateful. Hospital Has Been Remembered This Week.

It was also intimated that those who have donations to make need not by any means confine their giving to Dona tion week. HEAP OF COAL On the Way to Relief. Cincinnati' Cincinnati, O., Oct. 0.

Anderson Wanted Ecker- man Appointed Deputy, And Said He'd Name a Sheriff Who i Would Appoint Him. An Old Quarrel Disturbs Mr. Jared Barker's t Canvass. The announcement that there Is a possibility of Mr. W. E. Erkerman's being appointed Deputy Sheriff, in case of the election of Mr. ftared Bar ker to the office of Sheriff, has caused a great flurry In the political ranks controlled by Judge Anderson. It was not supposed to be known publicly that the appointment was In store for Mr. Eckerman, but It is known positively that the Judge has favored hlra for the place, and It Is believed that he will have some influence with Mr. Barker, whom he brought into the race, and whose campaign he Is managing. It appears that tho mention of Mr. Eokerman's name In connection with the appointment as Deputy has had a disturbing effect upon Mr. Barker's candidacy, for early this morning Mr. Barker brought the following commu nication to the Democrat office, with the request that it bo published: To the Editor of the Democrat: Inasmuch as it was stated in the Dally Democrat yesterday that If I am elected to the offlce,.ot Sheriff, Mr. W. E. Eckerman will be appointed my deputy, I desire to say that no promise of appointment to such dcputyshlp has been made by mo to Mr. Eckerman or to any other man. And, further, I will state that no such promise will be made by me to any one prior to the election, but that if elected, it is my pur poso to make such appointment as will bo satisfactory not only to me, but to the public as well. JARED BARKER, Inasmuch as Mr. Barker could not mako a promise such as he Indicates In his article without clouding his Utle to the office of Sheriff, if elected, his denial may be accepted at Its faco value, nothing more. "You haven't heard Mr. B.uLer say In plain English that he will not ap point Mr. Eckerman to be his deputy, have you?" queried one of Mr. Eeker man's friends, this moinlng, when spoken to regarding the matter, "Well, when he does say that Bert will not be appointed It will be time enough to break Into print. Meanwhile, wo are standing pat." The Inference that Mr. Eckerman would be appointed deputy was drawn from an Incident that happened at tl.i county Jail prior to Mr. Barker's nom ination. The incident referred to was the beginning of the celebrated quarrel of Sheriff Frank G. Kelly and Judge Anderson, which In local political af fairs has continued with a ligor un- "Protection Must Not Be a Mint For Illegal Gain. Chicago, Oct. 10 Governor Cummins, of Ioww, delivered the most import ant address at the Chicago Doy ban quet of the Marquette club )ast night. "The Iown Idea," was his theme. "Protection," he declared, "w ill stand as a shield for honest labor and a mine for lawful profit, but It shall not be used as a sword for Industrial piracy or as a mint for Illegal gain." He made this comment on the sched WAY UP. Soft Coal Has Doubled In Price In Chicago Within a Short Time. Chicago, Oct. 10 There Is a scarcity of soft coal In Chicago. The prices of tho commodity are soaring sky ward at a rnpld rate and are already far over the heads of the small con sumers. The Jpcrease Jn cot to the average puicbaser ranges from 75 to 100 percent, over the same season of n year ago.

Shortly before Sheriff Kelly wafl elected to his second term, ho was Yt- lted by Judge Anderson. Tho Judgd stated that he bad heard that la Simon M. Stone, who was then sorvina In the capacity of deputy sheriff, was thinking of resigning his position. "In case he does resign," said tha Juage, "I wish you would appoint Bast Eckerman to fill tho vacancy' And tho Jqdgo had tha temerity td further stipulate that Mr. Eckennaq should recedvo not loss than $QO 8 month. Sheriff Kelly, In speaking of tho rv cldent Friday, said: "I replied to hirft that Inasmuch as there was a possibil ity of more Judges being appointed, and consequently more work made ten the Sheriff, I would probably need monj deputies. Mr. Stone dld a few months -later, and Judge Anderson, scon aftejv ward, called on mo again. "'Xow, I expect you to make goofl your promise, he said. " 'What promisor I asked. " 'That Bert Eckerman be appointed deputy sheriff to succeed Mr. Stone.' . " 'I don't remember, ever haying' made such a, promise. "But yoc did, and I wan: yon to live up to It Eckerman must bo takoa care of.' " Everybody who knows Sheriff Kelly can imagine how he answered tho dictator. The essence or4 It, however was to the effect that he would rat his own business, and would stand noj Interference from Anderson. The conversation occurred hi tho Jail office, and the men became so heated in tho argument and used so much "loud talk" that Mrs. Kelly ordered them to finish their argument outside the Jail, as no political discussions were permitted inside. '. The closing remark of Judge Andet son, according to the statement of She3 Iff Kelly, was as follows "If I can's talk to you, I'll see to It that soma person whom I can talk to is put lii here," Whether or not Mr. Barker Is tha man selected by Judgo Andorsoni as a person who can bo "talked to" when the Czar has somo one to reward, re L mains to bo seen. But It is safo to infer that tho Judgo would not bo" hurting himself working for Mr. Bas ker, if such wero not the case.
