WEDNESDAY, NOV. 20,1902.
John Mitchell, the president of the
Anthracite coal miners Union, seems to
ilie and prove equal to the require
mente of every occasion. The follow
ing forceful paragraph is taken from
bis plea for an increase in miner's
"Our little boys should not be forced
into the mines and breakers so early in
life. Our little girls should not be
compelled to work In the mills and fac
tones at an age'when they Bhould be in
school. These children are the future
citizens of our nation. Their parents
should be enabled to earn wages sufll
Clently high to give them at least a
common school education so as to equip
them to bear the grave responsibilities
that will ultimately devolve upon them
The wealth and the future of the nation
•re not to be measured by its palaces
and millionaires, but rather by the en
lightened contentment and prosperity
of its millions of citizens who constitute
the bone and sinew of our land."
Anthracite Coal Trust WeakenB.
The attorneys for the Anthracite Ccal
TriiBt croBB examined President Mitch
ell for several days without making a
•ingle point In their favor, and now
When it is In order for their clients to
take the stand they do not seem to be
forthcoming. It is broadly hinted that
the big operators and the presidents of
the coal roads will never go on the wit
ness stand. There are, it is contended,
many glaring violations of law, and
many unlawful discriminations close to
their doors, to which they object to
having the commission apply the probe.
In fact It Is broadly asserted that if the
trust managers place themselves in a
position where they will be obliged to
answer questions, their answers will
convict them of criminal offenses as
well as willful violations of both state
and federal statutes.
At any event a great change has come
over the coal trust. There Is not now
trace of arrogance visible in its man
agement, and it is attempting to make
the best settlement It can with the
miners "out of court" and in that way
escape the consequences of a public ex
posure of their unlawful methods.

Seems To Be the Destination of
the Anthracite Mine Strike
By Which the Dispute Hay Be Settled
by the Parties Interested.
Suggestion or a TenDaye' Recess of
the Commission That the New
Scheme May Be Given a
Scranton, Pa., Nov. 22.—The mine
workers, through their representatives,
have agreed with the mine owners to
attempt to adjust the differences ex
isting betwwen them outside the an
thracite eonl strike commission. The
proposition was made oil a compromise
basis, and negotiations, it is expected,
will be at once entered upon with a
reasonable hope of settlement. The
rough proposition which Is to form the
basis of negotiations is a 10 per cent,
increase In wages, a nine-hour day, and
trade agreements between the miners
and the company by whom they are
employed. The only one of the four de
mands not touched upon is that of the
weighing of coal by the legal ton.
Terms Stated Are Only a Bull*
While bothsides have expressed their
willingness to settle their differences
among themselves it is not to be con
strued that It carries with it the ac
ceptance of the terms proposed. They
are mentioned only as a basis, it is un
derstood, from which a settlement is to
be effected. It is possible that the
foundation already laid can be wrecked
by either party holding out too strong*
ly against some question, iCnd tiius
leave the whole matter in the bands
of the commissioners who, in the mean
time, will act aB a board of concilia
tion, rather than an as a board of ar
Created a Htld Sensation*
Few persons were aware that an at
tempt would T)e made at an outside set
tlement until it was practically so in
timated by Judge Gray, the chairman
of the commission, who read a care
fully prepared announcement from the
"bench." The move, one of the most
important in the whole history of the
coal strike, created a mild sensation
when it became known. The surprise
was all the greater when it will be re
membered that numerous persons, from
the president of the United States
down, and that many organizations,
from the National Civic Federation to
the small boards of trade of the min
ing towns, failed to bring the two par
ties together.
Concluded That Life Was Too Short to
Permit of a Fnll Invettlgan*
It is said it was all brought about
.by.,.both .sides seeing, that, the pro
ceedings before the commission would
be interminable, and that in the in
termingling 'of the lawyers for both
sides the outside agreement proposi
tion was broached and taken up. It
cannot be officially stated whicn par
ty made the proposition first. The
attorneys for both sides are averse to
talking, but those who were inclined
to say something differ in their state
ments. An attorney for one of the
railroads said it came from the miners'
side, while one lawyer for the miners
said it was a "spontaneous" proposi

•f- Democrat.
$ The Democrat says truthfully that
the Leader favors the freest publicity
In all matters pertaining to the public
expenditure. It has advocated that
policy time and again, and notwith
standing the Democrat's insinuation to
the contrary, Mr. Cartetfewltfien In full
Empathy with tbj&^ntimeQtg uttered
by tnw^ESfatT He has asked other
members of the board to concur in
policy directing the publication of item
ized reports of expenditures from the
road and bridge funds, and of other
matters of which the taxpayers are en
titled to the fullest information But
Supervisor Durey has
always maintained
that If the taxpayer wanted to know
how his money is being spent he can
hitoh up and go to the court house, and
hunt through the archives until hefinds
out. We do not know what Supervisor
Lindsay's views are, but at least he has
not urged the reform or it might have
been adopted.
It is generally believed, however,
that the operators were the first to
make the proposition. Wayne Mac
Veagb is given credit for bringing
about the present situation. The com
missioners were informed of the new
turn of affairs, and acquiesced in the
proposed arrangement. The subject
did not directly come up in the pub
lic hearlng^yesterday, and the adjourn
ment proposition was made ostensibly
to permit both sides to complete their
work of preparing documentary evi
Clarence 3. Darrow, of Chicago, one
of Mitchell's attorneys, suggested that
the miners be given a little more time
to prepare their evidence. The min
ers wanted to present the due bills, or
wage statements, of thousands of min
ers, running back for several years,
and they found that the task of pre
senting them in a proper manner was
a stupendous one. They also wanted
to carefully examine the company
books and this, too, would take consid
erable time.
Idea Suits Ulin and He Suggests Adjust
•weut Between the Disputants.
Judge Gray remarked that the com
mission was agreeable, and added a
general condemnation of the testimony
given so far, which, though interest
lug, he said, and not absolutely value
less, did not bear directly upon the
points at issue. He also expressed the
hope that an effort be made by the.
parties to tlie dispute to come to an
agreement, promising them the aid of
the commission. I-Iis remarks general
ly were a plea for an adjustment be
tween the parties at issue. Two of
the companies by their counsel asked
time and approved of a ten days* ad
journment the commission. This
will be decided this afternoon.
It is learned by the correspondent
of the Associated 1'rcss that all the
(imijianfrs itjive not yet assent
ed to the proposed oul.sidc agreement,
but that in all probability they will
consent and continue to work as
unit as they did during the strike. The
Philadelphia and Reading Coal and
Iron company has not yet beeif. heard,
from on the matter. Those which are
said to be in the agreement scheme'
are the Delaware, Lackawanna and.'
Western, the Lehigh Valley, the Dela-.
ware and Hudson and the Erie com
pany, which controls the Pennsplvania
Coal company and the Hillside Coal!
and Iron company.
It has been realized that at least two
of the four demands of the miners-—*
those for a uniform wage scale and'l
the weighing of coal—cannot be satis
factorily settled in the hearing room^'j
but must be fixed up at the mines.
The proposition to have the mine work-:}
ers make contracts with their employ
srs only, ^uid not as it is done in the
bituminous states, where the operators-'!
have Btate or district organizations
which recognize the United Mine
Workers, does not carry with it a rec
ognition of that union, and on that
-ground It is not- likely that the two

The testimony-yesterday was mostly
given by doctors, who were positive
that mining conl wns a most unhealthy
business. Dr. Roberts asserted that
the situation during the late strike was
state of war and that "both parties
were intemperate." He thought $575
wns enough to maintain a United
States standard of living for a family.

Poor People His Victims.
Chicago, Nov. 21.—State's Attorney
Deneen may take up the charges
against H. B. Wickersham and present
them to the present grand jury. It is
estimated by the lawyers who have

of Wiekersham's affairs that his short
age is about $40,000. So far only $6,
000 is in sight toward the liquidating
of these claims. Most of the sufferers
are Italians, who for ten years have in
trusted their savings to Wickersham,
with implicit confidence. A meeting of
lawyers has been called to consider the

"Five men compelled the engineer

Chicago, Nov. 24.—The Ch&figo post

of one of the most daring 'robberies
that has ever been perpetrated in this
city. Two mail sacks full of registered

wagon in front of the Masonic Temple
while the mail carrier went into the
building to gather mail. While he was
gone the thief climbed into the wagon
and drove off. A mile away he rifled

Force Booted.
Iowa City, la., Nov. 24.—The worst
class scrap in the history of the state
university raged all night. Several
students were injured, property loss
approximating $700 resulted and the
local police were routed. The fight
started at the freshmen's dance in the
Imperial hotel dining room wheu a
sophomore threw a skunk through the
window. Others bombarded the hotel
with eggs, broke much plate glass and
demolished costly bric-a-brac.
The freshmen retaliated and a san
guinary battle commenced. Policemen
clubbed J. II. King and W. M. ICal
ler, medical students, inflicting severe
wounds, when other medical students
routed the officers. Numerous revolver
shots were tired, but none are believed
to have taken effect. Although sever
al students were hurt their injuries
consisted simply of contusions. Dean
Curran has ordered an investigation.

Pittsburg, Nov. 24.—All previous rec

and the great freight blockade that has
existed here for weeks is practically
lifted. It is estimated that during the
forty-eight hours 920 trains, with a
total of 46,300 cars, were moved.
As a result of the efforts the tracks
are in a less congested condition than
for months, while the interchanging
system has resumed its pormni condi
tion, which admits of the roads hand
ling the cars with less confusion. Itt
was a busy day for the railroad people.
All of the employes of the roads were
pressed into service and given but
short rests.
The almost entire tie-up of the blast
furnaces and steel mills of the Shen
ango and Mahoning valleys caused the
traffic managers to give preference, as
far as possible, to the movement of the
classes of freight upon which a contin

accidents to trainmen during the day
was high. This Is attributed to the
