PRESIDENT WILL C0N8ENT.
vaiiii Wnryii. the Commission If the
Miners Favor the Plan.
AVnaiiintMnn. Oct. 14. At noon to
day It was salil nt tho temporary
Whlto Hoiue that t communication
rolatlvo to tlio pro 4. -altlon of tho an
thraclto coal operators bail beon re
ceived from Prosldont John Mltcholl
of tho United Mlno Workors. Tho
proposition waB not transmitted to
lresldont Mltcholl officially either by
President ltoosovclt or by tho local
onorntors. It was addressed to tho
public and It Is assumed that Mr.
Mltcholl will tnko cognlzanco of It
from the press. In tho event bo should
not do so, howovor, It Is possible that
tho president would ofllclally notify
him of tho proposition of tho officers.
Inasmuch as the communication of the
ofllcors was in tho shape of an ad
drcsfl to tho public It Is possible that
Mr. Mltcholl may mako his reply In a
similar manner. Tho prosldont has
ngret'd to appoint tho commission sug-
Ki'Btcd by tho coal operators, provld
od Buch a commlBBlon should provo
natlsfactory to tho minors.
During tho early part of today the
president had several conferences,
all bearing upon tho strlko situation.
Secrotary Hoot called at tho Whlto
House Immediately after the dopart
uro of .Messrs. J. P. Morgan and It.
H. Ilacon from New York and had a
brlof Intorvlow with tho proBldont.
Soon aftorward Franlc P. Sargent,
commissioner of Immigration, had a
conforonco with tho president He de
clined to dlsciiBs tho object of his In
terviews, hut It was bellovod to be
with roferonco to tho personnel of
tho proposed commission. Commls
Hlonor of Labor Carroll D. Wright also
had an extondod Intorvlow with tho
president. At Its conclusion whllo ho
declined to discuss It ho exprossed
tho belief that the coal strike was on
the ovo of settlement. He hud no In
formation from President Mitchell.
The fcellnic at the White House Is
optimistic. The belief Is genera1
among otnclitl and civilian callera
that a long step has been taken to
ward n final settlement of the strike.
Until Mr. Mitchell makes his reply
no further action on tho part of the
proeldent Is expectod. It developed
today that tho main features of the
operators' propoeltlon wero discuss
ed and In a gonernl way agreed to at
tho conference between Secretary
Hoot and J. P. Morgan In New York
on Saturday last. Mr. Morgan was
very anxious to bring about an ad
justment and Secretary Hoot was ablo
to point out monns whoroby tho main
obstacles to yielding on tho part of
tho oporators could bo romoved.
Tho names suggested for member
ship on tho commltteo of arbitration
nro Carroll D. Wright, tho commis
sioner of labor, and 13. W. Parker, sta
tistician of tho United States geolog
ical survoy. Colonol Wright has boon
a close adviser of tho prosldont over
slnco tho Inception of tho coal trou
bles and enjoys the conndonco of both
aides of the great labor fight. Ho
might bo named aB tho "sociological
expert" of tho commission.
E. W. Parker of Texas, who has
been In the sorvlco of tho survey de
partment hero for some years, Is con
sidered ono of tho best authorities In
tho country on tho subject of coal.

passing twieo through his tongue.
Ho was roportod dead, nnd tho doc

ono of tho times whon tho victim was
too tough to bo killed. After lying

resenting considerable capital spent
sovoral days In the elty.last week

Club Women and "Goodness."
Chicago, OcL 14. President Hyde
of Bowdoln college preached at tho
Unlvorslty of Chicago on "Goodness."
Ho said that goodness was tho prin
ciple of life, and that ethically no act
was bad or good of Itself, but accord
ing to tho purposo of tho notion. Ho
took for oxnmplo two womon. Ono li
dovotod to her homo and family and
finds ploasuro in tho dutios of domes
tic llfo. Sho Is a loving wire and
mothor. If this woman finds rete
ntion and Intellectual onjoymont by
becoming n-mombor of some woman's
club that, Mr. Hydo maintains Is
right. She Is goodnoss. Another
woman llnds no onjoymont at homo
and frets nt light household tasks.
This woman, who cannot find onjoy
mont with bar family, Joins n wo
man's club, and sho will go Into it
with tho force of a Bteam englno and
tho powor of a dynamo.
"This," Mr. Hydo says, "Is not
"goodnoas, for this woman Is playing
tho part of a dovll."
