IK ISjmitD III Strike Leaders and Coal Operators Meet to Confer with the President Regarding Strike. No Settlement Had Been Reached at the Time of the Close of the Second Conference. Urgent Appeal Made by the President to the Patties to Settle Their Differences. Washington, Oct. 4.—-The second step iix the president's effort to effect A settlement between the anthracite coal magnates and the miners was taken during the day. At 11:10 o'clock, ten minutes after the hour fixed for the conference, every person who had been invited to participate, with the exception of President Oly phant of the Delaware and Hudson, who sent as his personal representa tive David Wilcox, vice president and general counsel of the road, and Pres ident Cassatt of the Pennsylvania railroad, was present, in the second story room of the temporary execu tive mansion, where the president, since his return from Indianapolis, has transacted such necessary public busi ness as could not be postponed. The president, during the conference, was heated lit a large invalid* chair, nls ijsft leg extended at full length, rest ing upon a 'cushion. The president greeted most cordially each of ifts guests as they appeared and when all were assembled he stated to them in a brief preliminary way his object in CfilHiig thein together. The president, fully realizing the,importance of .the Communication that he was to make, had prepared a carefully worded pa per setting forth, ip detail his position on the ft&iidi&g bohtrbversy. The pres ident said: "I wish to call your attention to the fact that there are three parties affected by the situation: in the an thracite trade—the operators, the miners and the general public. speak for neither the operators nor the miners, but for the general pub lic. The questions at issue which led to the situation affect immediately the parties concerned—^the operators and the miners but the situation itself vitally affects the public. As long as there seemed to be a reasonable hqpe that these matters could be adjusted between the parties it did hot seem proper to me to intervene in any way. Duty Demands Some Action. "I disclaim any right or duty to in tervene in this way upon legal grounds or upon any official relation that 1 bear to the situation but the urgency and the terrible nature of the catas trophe impending over a large portion of our people in the shapes of a winter fuel famine impels me, after much anxious thought, to believe that my duty requires me to use whatever in fluence 1 personally can to. bring to an end a situation which has become lit erally intolerable. I wish to empha size the character of the situation and to say that its gravity is such that I am constrained urgently to insist that each one of you realize the heavy bur den/of responsibility upon him. We are upon the threshold of winter, with an already existing coal famine, the future terrors of which we can hardly yet appreciate. The evil possibilities are so farreaching, so appalling, that it seems to me that you are not only justified In sinking but required: to sink for the time being any tenacity as to your respective claims in the atter at issue between you. In my udgment the situation imperatively requires that yoii meet upon the,com mon plane of' the necessities of the public. With all the earnestness there is in me I ask that there, be an im mediate resumption of operations in the coal mines in some such way as will without a day's unnecessary de lay meet the crying needs of the peo ple. "I do not invite a discussion of your respective claims and positions. I ap peal to your patriotism, to the spirit that sinks personal consideration and makes individual sacrifices for the general good." ju Given Time to Consider When the president had conciaaea the reading of his statement he said he did not expect that either party would be ready, to submit propositions at thfc time,, but he asked them to take into, consideration what hie bad said and to return at 3 ^o'clock. He said he hoped that, some proposition might be presented at that time which would furnish the basis of an adjust ment. The conference then terminated. It had lasted less than fifteen minutes. The representatives of tl*e TWENTY-SECONB YEAR. BISMARCK. NORTH DAKOTA. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1902 railroads came down stairs firfet aitd went to their canriageB. They refused to say .anything except ,tft£t they wi again ft 8 o'clock They 4rouI even say where they we make their headquarters, tftilit where they could be seen President Baer remarked to the newspaper men: "CMtttleriHtti. what wa want i» tb get some piftee where you can't find tia and where we will not bis interrupted," They then drove away. President $Sttchell and his party followed soon after, refusing tf sis anythi&Jf. Jittle later AttSni^ Kwx ,te^the'|^torHo^| It was understood that both partie» to the conference would, during the adjournment, formulate some oronosi- fa' uon based on what the president had! said or that each would be prepared with a reply to present to the presi dent when the conference was re sumed at 3 o'clock. Operators Prepare Statements. The -iu-esentatives of the railroads Were driven from the White House to their special train in which they re mained at the Baltimore ant Ohic station until it was time to leave foi the.8ecQnd conference. They prepared statements which they Will present to the, president when the conference reassembles and which they will maVe public as soon as the president has seen them. They declined to discuss the attitude they will take on the ground that it' would, be discourteous to the president to disclose their in tentions oi their statements previous to submitting them to him. President Baer. •vfas asked if there was any prospect of a settlement of the strike. He, replied that he could not tell as each company would sub Wit, a separate statement to the presi dent. When Mr. Mitchell and District Presidents Duffy, Nicholls and Fahey left the White House after the confer ence they returned to the hotel where they were closeted, during the after noon. Mr. Mitchell declined to say anything, about his purpose in regard to a settlement of the strike. All the parties to the conference were at the White House by 3:15 o'clock and the meeting then was re sumed. The news that came from the inside to the effect that the coal presidents had prepared statements which they intended to publish caused a feeling ot depression, for it was taken to mean that tliey had resolved to maintain their position and were called upon to explain, to the public for their reasons for so doing. WILL FIGHT MERGER. National Live Stock Association Plans to Oppose Packing Trust. Denver, Oct. 4.—The National Live Stock association, several of the larg est Western railways and Individual stockmen throughout the West have decided to fight the proposed merger now in process of formation of the great packing industries of the coun try. Kansas City, Oct. 4.—C. P. Morse, president of the Kansas City and Den ver Stock Yards company, speaking of the Denver story to the effect that the National Live Stock association, Western railways and individual stockmen would fight the proposed stock yards merger, said: "I have recently been called on by representatives of some of the prin clpal live stock associations of the Southwest as to the attitude which the Kansas City Stock Yards company would take toward the establishment of a large packing plant to be owned by cattlemen. J. Springer, the presi dent of the National Live Stock asso ciation, said he thought there was no difficulty in raising a capital of $10, 000,000 or $15,000,000 for this purpose. While I am not authorized to speak for the company "at this time it is my judgment if such a company should be organised the stock yards would be glad to meet it with the same liberal ity that it has shown to other com panies in the past." MILES OF GOLD ORE. Fabulous Richness of a Recent Mex ican Discovery. Austin, Tex., Oct. 4.—A short time ago James Taylor, an American min ing prospector, discovered a gold and silver bearing ledge in a. remote sec tion of the state of Sonera, Mex. The indications were that it was a Very rich find, but as he did not have the necessary money to acquire the title and develop the property, he laid the matter before W. C. Green of New York city," who is at the head of Green Consolidated Copper company. Mr. Green sent a mining expert to examine the prospect and the latter reported that it was of fabulous rich ness. He estimated that there is not less than $20,000,000 of gold and sil ver ore in sight. The ledge is four feet wide and extends across the country for many miles. Mr. Green has paid Mr. Taylor ?250, 000 for a three-quarter interest in the prospect and will develop it on an extensive scale. It is said to be one of the richest gold and silver properties in the world. TO 8ETTLE FRIAR QUESTION. Estimated It Will Take Three Years at Le*8t- Washington, Oct. 4.—Three years is the period of time now fixed in the mjh^ds ot the officials of the war de ptu-tinent as requisite for a complete settlement of the Philippine friars lands question if it is to be adjusted on the present basid. This appears to be an extraordinary waste of time but it is accounted for,by, the statement' that so jpt cdtii&ilicatted are the l8.nd titles to be examined that all the lififurtiM of the Philippine civil gov cmtnent cannot satisfactorily adjust them in a less time. /. eaStS?1 x%I Battlffhip Contract Awarded. Washington, Oct. 4.—The secretary ot the navy has awarded the contract for the construction of the battleship fyoujiiana to the Newport News Ship building company 4t its bid 93,. 990,000.

Commend President Roosevelt's Ad ministration and Endorse* the 1 Philippics Policy. J. Kamjiitift ttitadte of Philadelphia Chosen of thU League Chicago, Oct. 4.—The convention of the League of Republican bltibs has. completed its labors and adjourned. At the opening of the second day's 3eBsion the committee on resolutions was not ready to report and it was re solved to proceed with the election of officers. J. Kampton Moore of Phil adelphia had no opposition for the nomination for president and his elec tion was made by acclamation... The president-elect, when he received the gavel from retiring President Hamil ton, made a brief speech in which he urged the necessity of organized ef fort in seeking the success of the Re publican party. The committee on time and place ot next meeting, after mentioning Penn sylvania, Missouri and California as candidates, left the matter to the new executive committee. The league plat form, .as produced by the resolutions committee, was then presented to the delegates, who adopted it without dis-. cussion. The platform follows: "The National Republican league, in its thirteenth convention assembled, congratulates the party of Abraham Lincoln and our American citizenship of all parties upon the prosperity, that was restored to the whole people un der the wise and patriotic policies that signalized the administration of Will iam McKinley, in war and in peace, and that have been continued with energy and fearlessness by the sol dier-statesman, Theodore Roosevelt. We give unqualified commendation to his administration. We believe in his honesty of purpose, admire him for his courage and love him for his unswerv ing Republicanism." Philippine Policy Endorsed. The administration's policy in Cuba and the Philippines is endorsed and the admission of New Mexico, Okla homa and Arizona is favored. Re garding the tariff the platform says: "The unexampled prosperity that has attended the full exercise of Re publican tariff. policy is obvious, and commands unwavering adherence tc that policy as one of cardinal impor tance in protecting American labor, maintaining American industries, and sustaining American institutions." Continuing the platform says: "We condemn every combination o£ capital whose purpose is self-aggran-t dizeinent at the expense of the worfe ingman, the general public, the na tion, or any state or local govern ment, Or to increase the cost of the necessities of life, or, in any way, tc assail the moral, physical or political welfare of the people. "We characterize the Democratic party as one without a fixed policy on any of the great public questions ot the day. It offers no remedy for any existing ills, and it, is only active in opposition to the progressive acts ol the Republican party, while it awaits a possible national calamity that may furnish it an issue." After the adoption of the platforn: the other officers were elected as fol lows: Secretary, E. J. Weeks, Iowa treas urer, Sid B. Redding, Arkansas vice president, J. J. Sheridan, Illinois. The only contests were over the offices of treasurer and vice president, Byron B. Sheffield of Kansas having been a candidate for the former and Luthei W, Mott of New York for the latter. COMPTROLLER RIDGELY DENIES Has Not Overruled Shaw's Action Rel ative to Reserves. Washington, Oct. 4.—Comptroller of the Currency Ridgely has authorized a denial of reports that he had over ruled the action of Secretary Shaw rel ative to the reserve funds and relief of the strained money situation. Mr. Ridgely said that he was at a loss to account for Its origin. He skid that he had not only bad not taken such a step, but that there had been no case before him on which any such ac tion could be based. Killa Son Injures Wife. Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.. Oct. 4.— Noah Hale, a market gardener living six miles from here, shot and killed •hia son Frank and badly injured his wife, beating her ever the head with the butt of the gun with which he had just killed his son. The murderer then fled to the woo^s, whither officers and. a os Inhabitant* Panie-8trioken London, Oct- 4.—A special dispatch from Rome announces that a violent earthquake was felt &t Terni, about fifty miles from the former place. The Inhabitants were panic stricken and fled to open spaces.

Move for Increased 'Wages Will Ex tend to All the Lines of the Country. Demand Will be General, and an In crease of .Twelve Per Cent is Likely to fee Asked. Chicago, Oct. 4.—The secret ses sion of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers at the Sherman House has ended and the representatives of the order left toWn immediately. Grand Chief Engineer P. M. Arthur declined to discuss the object of the meeting, but it was learned that the subject un der discussion was a demand for an in crease in wages. The engineers agreed in the recent national convention in Norfolk, Va., that they would make a formal de mand and it was in line, with this de cision that the Chicago meeting was held. The engineers employed on twelve railroads were represented. The en gineers assert that the tonnage of freight trains has become so much heavier that there is no comparison with the work they had to do when the schedule now in force was adopt ed. Engines are larger and the hours the men are required to remain on duty makes theirs a trying task, they say. They declare they are entitled to at least a 10 per cent raise. The demands of tfie engineers is not to be confined to the few roads represented but is general. NO ATTEMPT Strikers TO RUN CARS. Masters of the Situation at New Orleans. New Orleans^ Oct. 4.—The striking stret ear men, who left their posts last Sunday morning in an attempt to se cure higher wages arid a shorter day, apparently are masters of the situa tion here as no attempt had been made up to 10 o'clock to start cars on any of the lines. Considerable destruction of property of the New Orleans Railway com pany was reported as having occurred during the night. It is probably the result of the statement of the com pany that it Would attempt to run its cars. Feed wires were cut, poles chopped and other measures taken to make it difficult for the company to operate its service. The morning papers contain adver tisements for 1,060 motormen and con ductors. They stated that only resi dents of New Orleans neep apply. It is not considered probable that there will be numerous responses to these advertisements. Telegrams from oth er cities say that the company was seeking outside labor but the company is not willing to admit this and refers to its advertisement to show that it desires only home labor. The strik ers, however, are suspicious and there 'are pickets at all the railway stations in anticipation of the arrival of foreign laborers. Efforts are being made by disinter ested persons to bring the representa tives of the contending factions to gether. Hope has not been abandonee, of an amicable settlement. Until the company attempts to operate cars other than those carrying the mail there is unlikely to be serious dit turbance of the peace. YANKEE CITY IN CUBA Ohioans to Build a Model Town Near Havana.

THE SOUSA CONCEBT LARiGE AUDIENCE ENJOYS CON CERT BY SOUSA'S BAND AT THE? ATHENBUM. it was all very much like a scenes from a fairy tale or an enchantment when Souea and his band rendered-* their concert program at the Athene um last night, and doubtless there1 were many in the audience who mom entarily expected the scene to fade, the music to melt away, and tx hear again the strident tones of the heavy villain cry—"Wr-r-r-r-eitch. give me the key to the r-r-r-oot cellar ere 1 blow up the house with dynamite." But it was not to be. The dream con tinued until the music died away in. one last swelling chorus of reed and:, brass, and the audience dispensed,: having heard the March King at his best, and the band which has been, made famous by hie directorsiMp, all the world over. Sousa was in good humor, too, grac ious and appu'eciative of the enthusi asm of his audienice. There were nine numbers on the program and the aud ience enjoyed seventeen, for Sousa re sponded with an encore to each selec tion. There was variety in his con ceat, tanging from the classic in Taon haiuser and Lizt, through the martial and stirring in his own march selec tions, to an occasional snatch of rag time, or a skit from a popular opera And through eaoh selection stood Sousa, dapper, masterful and graceful, directing, with his baton carving little circles and waves, now lifting a white gloved hand with a gesture that car ried meaning to hi artists, now sweep ing both arms through the air like a proiessor of calisthenics, and all con tributing 10 bring about a melody, sometimes like the singing of birds in the sprngtime, and again a crash and swell of harmony, like the beating of waves upon a rock. The concert opened with the over ture from Tannhauser, as an encore to which Sousa responded with one of his famous marches, which have a swing and rhythm not approached by other maich comipositions, and which are nowhere so stirringly rendered as by Sousa's own band. Arthur Pryor, trombone soloist, followed with a trombone Solo, "Blue Bells of Scot land," and to pitaise his selection would be merely to repeat what has been said from coast to coast. Miss. Liebling, soprano, captured the audi ence with several solos. Her voice is remarkably clear -and sweet, and in the rendition of a song with flute ob ligate, it was difficult to distinguish, her tones from the mellow notes of the flute. Aifiter the inbei'rnission, there was a fantastic medley, "The Band Came Back," arranged by Sousa. Gradual ly the musicians returned to the stajge, clarinetists, oboists, corneters, trombonists, trumpeters, each class by itself and each rendering a selection from some popular air as they came. A curious feature of the medley was a rendition of five different tunes, by as many separate instruments, at the same time, without a discordant note or break in the harmony. Finally, when all of the musicians had gathered again upon the stage, there burst forth the triumphant notes of "El Capitan" as Sousa returned to his i«, and resumed his directorship. The Imperial Edward march, dedi cated to the king, was one of the se- proved her right to such musical companions!! i,p in her "Caprice de Concert," her execution being perfect and her mastery of the violin un doubted. It was an evening of pleasure 'for music lovers. The Atheneum was* crowded, the house being the largest since the appearance of Emma an,d Leavee Polities ftr -Ml PRICE FIVE CENTS. 4 Afb- bott over ten years ago. Sousa and his band arrived by special train from Jamestown at a iiibtle after 7 o'clock, left again for the west shortly af- ter the ixn^formance. UP TO PENNSYLVANIA.
