SUN WAS OBSCURED By Smoke and Ashes From Fires In Two States. SEEMED TO THREATEN A STORM. H??e Hanit" Over tbe City Like a Pall, While the Adirondack*, Catukllla and Pennsylvania Hllla Crackle With Heat. NEW YOttK, June 5? Smoke and ashes from forest fires in this and neighboring states obscured the sun as though by some heavy yellowish mist, and a pungent odor of burning wood permeated the air. The haze hung over the river and harbor, somewhat impeding traffic, and the trolley and elevated road service was delayed. New Yorkers awoke to sniff the air suspiciously and to look up in wonder ment at the thick haze that had crept in the night upon the city. It was dif ferent from the mists that come up from the sea and was not unlike the drift of vapor that floats away from a great factory fire. So the wise ones said, "Forest fires." At this the incredulous scoffed, for New York, as far as present memories run, has never before smelled the smoke of forest fires. But the Adirondacks, the Catskills and the mountains of Pennsylvania arc crackling with the heat of burning tim ber, and Long Island, too, has its con flagrations. Weather Forecaster Emery said the peculiar conditions were the result of a combination of slight mist, dust aris ing from the overheated earth and, most of all, the smoke drifting down from the mpuntain fires. He said there was no sign of rain in the phenome non. At first many people thought a storm was coming; but, though the dawn was brown and foreboding, there was no taste of moisture in the air. It had almost a sting such as the people of Martinique got when Pelee was in eruption. Vistas became dim, veiled by an opalescent curtain. Many people complained that their eyes were affect ed by the peculiar conditions of the at mosphere. On this, the drought's forty-ninth day, the outlook for rain is not en couraging. THE COAL MINERS. President John Mltehell Spcaki For Worker*. INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., June 5. - With regard to the probability of a re sumption of the strike in the anthra cite region of Pennsylvania President John Mitchell of the mine workers was unwilling to make any statement. Concerning the chief points to the con troversy that now seems likely to pro voke a renewal of hostilities, whether or not the men selected by the miners' organization should be members of the board of conciliation, as authorized by the board of arbitration, he said: "The statement that the question of recognizing the United Mine Workers was never submitted to the strike com mission is entirely untrue. That was one of the important awards in our fa vor, the wording of it being that 'the miners' organization'? which, of course, is the United Mine Workers? 'should have three representatives on the board of conciliation, one for each dis trict.' Naturally I appeared for the anthracite coal workers before the strike commission, and it was as pres ident of the mine workers that I was given the right to do so. The argu ment of District President Fahey, in which he says that it would be as log ical for us to demand that each stock holder of the coal companies be con sulted with in regard to the selection of the operators' members of the board of conciliation as that all the miners in the region vote on the men to repre sent them is very sensible. However, the award of the strike commission specifically provides for that. "It is true that conditions in the Wy oming valley are very bad. Our re ports are to the effect that the men are compelled to work on Sundays and that in few particulars have the opera tors lived up to the decisions of the strike commission. No, I do not wish to anticipate the possibilities of an other strike." LEO WELL, BUT EXHAU8TED. Hold* Conference Refrardlnff Arch fclahop of Manila. ROME, June 5.? With regard to the reports that the pope is ill, it is learn ed that the only trouble from which he is suffering is exhaustion due to overfatigue as a result of the recep tions his holiness had held since Eas ter, when the people were admitted in private audience or to Pope Leo's pres enoe to the number of 20,000. This is the only reason for the suspension of audiences. The pope continues to see high offi cials and had a long conference with Cardinal Rampolla about the appoint ment of an archbishop of Manila, for which post there are three candidates, Mgr. F. Z. Rooker, formerly secreta ry of the apostolic Relegation at Wash ington and now bishop of Jaro, Phil ippine Islands; the Rev. Father J. J. Harty, rector of St. Leo's, St. Louis, and Thomas A. Hendrick of Roches ter. The last named was proposed by Cardinal Gibbons. The pope will resume hla ordinary audiences today. Kalaer and Cmar Will Meet. BERLIN, June 5.?
