Pittsburg, April 20.— Tomorrow at
noon the great coal strike, which baa
been pending eeveral ni mtha, will be
inaugurated. Opinion differs as to the
number of men who will be engaged in
it. The president of the United Mine

number at 100,000 Telegraphic ro

strike will be confined to the b tumin

ehmduned. Of these 300 are located in
Ohio. In the Pittsburg district there
are 120 mines, and 30 iv thei Clearfisld
or Mountain district. These two dis

Ohio there are about 3000, in Indiana

Altogether no impending Btrike for

Will the strike be a success? To
those on the inside of the organization,
a strike I", the object of the suspension,
but it will have the desired effect if it
briugs about a conference of operators
all over the conntry, which will result
iv higher wagee to the miners and more
money to the operators. The operators
in Ohio, Illinois and Missouri aud parts
of Pennsylvania favor the suspension
movement. They want a higher
schedule of prices.
Tonight the superintendent of the Gas
and Coal company, to offset a statement
that the miners of the company were
only able to earn 75 cents a day, ex
hibited the company pay rolls for the papt
several months, which shows that the
meu who are working by the ton, have
none of them averaged less than $1.75 a
day and some of them $2.14 per day.

April 26th, to take steps to bring about
a gener.tl strike in the Kanawha valley.
Macon, Mo., April 20.—A large num
ber of the Bevier miners are dissatisfied
over their decision to suspend work to
morrow noon. They have now decided
to throw down their picks, provided the
other Missouri coal miners stop work.
The miners have appointed a committee
to ascertain whether the miners at Lex
ington, Ardmore and Marceline intend
to go oat. The Bevier miners have de
cided not to take final action until they

Affect of Labor Troubles on tbe Busi

Nsw York, April 20 —Bradstreet's re
view of trade tomorrow will oay : With
the exception o! the prospect for a still
further extension of strikes aud other
labor disturbances, no plainly retarding
influence is manifesting itself. So far
as learned there are about 23 additional
strikes, involving 23,000 people, brings
the total number of those on a strike or
idle by strikes up to 60,000. The week
also furnishes 11 shutdowns of im
portant industrial establishments, more
then offset by the resumption of others,
which furnish employment to 5000
operatives, although seven important
establishments announce reductions of
wages. The widelj heralded announce
ment that 200,000c0al miners will Btrike
today has occasioned uneasiness among
manufacturers at many central, western
and eastern cities, owing to the pros
pective scarcity of fuel. Cities along
the line of the Great Northorn railrv;i(d,
which road is now at a standstill be
cause of the strike of the employees, are
finding their reduced volumes of busi
ness still further curtailed, and at Chi
cago labor troubles seriously affect the

Dangerous Bacilli 141 Senator
Allen's Speech.
Senator Hawley Goes for the
Nebraska Oracle.
Till Peffer Commonweal Resolution
Roughly Handled,
GalllngT and Oth >r Senatore Disease
th« tariff Bl I—A Lively Paa
eage-at- I rma In tba
Bj (he Associated Pre a,
Washi-noton, April 20. — When the
senate was called to order today, Sher
man, from the oommittee of foreign re
lation i, reported a oill for the correction
of an error in the Bering aea bill, re
cently passed, by the substitution ol the
word "exclusive" for "inclusive."
The Petfer resolution for the appoint
ment of a reception committee for
Coxey's army of the Commonweal, to
be known in senate parlance as "the
committee on communications," came
up a few minutes before 1 o'clock, but
in th.ae few min'Ues it received some
very rough handling.
Hawley, who dealt the blows, said he
would h»-e prelerred to have some of
the dominant party in the senate take
the floor, for certainly the speech made
yesterday by Allen of Nebraska ought
not to be allowed to go forth to the
country as representing in any degree
the views of the senate. He criticized
Allen lor hiß reference to the Common
weal army as "the people," and also for
his allusions to the district military un
der command of General Ordway, and
he ventured to say General Ordway had
given more time to the study of tbe
question than the senator, and that not
one step was being taken by him except
at the command of the civil authorities.
These men who were coming here did
not represent the general viewa of the
people; they wer«i not coming with the
intention of prostrating themselves at
the feet of congresß, but to impress
them by their presence.
In conclusion Hawley said there were
many other things in Allen's speech
which should be refuted, but he did not
propose to do it. "I am sorry to say it,"
he continued j "but I feel bonnd to say
and it would not require a wide scope
to discover in it the microbes and ba
cilli of anarchism."
Allen intended to reply to Hawley,
bat the time being up, the resolution
went over without action, and the tariff
bill being laid before the senate, Gal
linger ol New Hampshire spoke against
the bill.
In the course of Gallinger's speech a
running controversy came up between
Gray of Delaware and Aldrich of Rhode
Island, the latter asserting and the for
mer denying that at recent eleetiona the
people had expressed their reprobation
of tbe kind of tariff reiorm now before
When Gray said the only way to settle
the dispute was by popular vote, Gal
linger asked if Gray would agree to post
pone action until the people could be
heard in November.
"I would not dare go home," replied
Gray, "if I did that thing."
Aldrich reminded Gray that tbe
Democratic press of the country had
had nothing but words of praise for the
two speeches in opposition to the bill
from the Democratic side of the cham
ber. Their appeal to put the bill in
shape to conform to the Democratic
policy had the hearty co-operation of
all the Democrats of tbe north.
"Tne aeuatur from Rhode la.tn-.id ie
building a great superstructure on the
two speeches to wnicb toe alludeß," re
plied Gray, "but I understand both
these speeches, certainly the last,
were confined to discussion of the in
come tax feature, which has about as
much relation to the tariff reform
measure deraanH" ' by the people of
1892 us an ukaoc oy the Russian em
peror, and- if the senator from Rhode
Island builds any hope on that founda
tion, he wilt have to sympathize with
his disappointment."
"I shall be very much surprised,"
said Aldriob, "if a great many senators
on tbe opposite side do not soon come
to the conclusion that tbe income tax
is a very important feature ol the bill."
"Is the senator opposed to the income
tax?" asked Gray.
"I am opposed to the income tax and
every other feature ot the tariff bill be
fore the senate," replied Aldrich.
Gallinger was folio ved by McMillan,
who said: "A comparison between the
Wilson bill as it. comes from the house
and the new Canadian tariff shows how
close an understanding must have ex
isted between tbe trainers of the two
meaeure,,." He pointed out in detail
the tetuia which showed a parallel be
tween the two bills.
Djlph followed in a speech against the
bill, in which he incidentally paid a
high tribute to ex-President Harrison.
At 5 o'clock Dolph suspended his
speech and will conclude tomorrow.
The senate at 5:20 p. m. went into ex
ecutive session, and at 5:55 adjourned-
A Passage-at- Arm* Between fiurrovi
and Wh.elnr. ,
Washington, April 20. —There waa a
paseage-at-arms between Reoreeenta
tives Burrows and Wheeler today.
Wheeler was taunted with talking four
columns of the Congressional Record in
precisely one minute, and retorted that
the protest camo with bad trace
from one whose " hands were
red with parliamentary murder."
Burrows recalled a previous example of
Wheeler's speech, that occupied five
minutes in delivery, hiving taken 14
columns of the Record, and a motion
was made to refer the subject to the
committee on printing, but Mr. Wheeler
cried quits by asking leave to withdraw
his remarks.
Small important bills were pastel and
the rest of ttie day was spent in the
fruitless discusion of a bill to settle
some Tennessee war claims against the
government. It was finally ended when
Mr. Enloe made the point of no qaorom
on a motion to recommit the bill.
Tbe evening sessiou was devoted to
pension business.
Allen Stands by His Remarke.
Washington. April 20 —Senator Allen
was asked taday if be desired to make
any reply 10 the remarks of Senator
Hawley in the senate. He said he did
not care to say any tiling concern win
Senator Hawley's personal accusations.
T think," he said, "that the tem
per of the secretary shows that
the corporations and those who trade
with them wera winged by m> remarks
Yesterday. I stand by what I said then,
and can not, in further discussion, but
repeat what 1 said on tbe floor ot the
senate. Mr. Hawley can not, of cours*-,
dictate my conrse, and I do not think
he has any desire to do so."
Details of the right With Outlaws In I
Oklahoma. }
Guthriu, O. T., April 20.—The full de- ,
tails of the report of a battle between
the Dalton ie >ug and deputy marshals
near Ingalls, 55 miles from this city, are
now known. A fight occurred at the '
house of Bruce Miller, an outlaw.
The officers surrounded tbe bouse, all ,
of them armed with Winchesters, just
before daylight. Several bandits were
iuside. Fully an hoar's con
sultation was had with the i
bandits before a move was made
by either side and then the officer
of tbe party ordered his men to beuin
firing. The bandits returned the tire
through the windows and crevices of tbe
house. At 10 o'clock Mrs. Miller, who
had been wounded, left the house and
crawled to where one of the officers was
located behind a tree. She had received
a flesh wound and begged that she
might be permitted to ride to In
galls for a doctor to attend herself and
also bar baby and a hired man, who
were both wounded. The woman was
permitted to saddle a horse and leave.
Shortly after nightfall, during a lull in
the right, the bandits made a break from
the house and fled, pursued by the dep
uties. Four badly wounded bandits
were leit in Miller's house after their
companions had broken through the
line of officers. Two of the officers were
killed and three wounded.
St. Louis, April 20,—A special to the
Republio from Perry, O. T., says: The
latest news trom tbe battle between tbe
Dalton gang and the posse of deputy
United States marshals is not as bad as
vfi.ee rtrrivea-toffcay -|r\TTM-"FrtB , "YIT-, 1 tTTTVTT\
t the Twin mountains, and reports a fight,
but tbe fatalities were not so many as at
first reported. It is not certain that
more than one person was killed and a
' little girl wounded.
r The Evening Times here stated that
both Bill Dalron and Doolan were killed
and carried off by their comrades, but
this cannot be confirmed tonight. The
latest reports say that Heck Thomas
of this city, one of the bravest men in
the territory, was also killed.
Four Men Drowned at the Month of the
San Francisco, April 20.—News has
been received here of the loss of the

wrecked. All on board perished with
her. Tbe drownedare Capt. C. Marquez,
two seamen named Thompson and
Brow, and Avery Edson, a youth
whose parents live at Crescent City.
The bodies of Captain Marquez, Avery
Edson and ont ol the sailors have since

on the stand nearly all day.
He said he never advised his daughtei
in-law what to do with her property;
he never saw the will till in court.
Father Locke of Santa Ynez mission
was an interesting witness this after
noon. He stated that the late Mrs.

By th« Associated Press.
Omaha, April 20.—General Kelly is all
that tbe good words hitherto said of him
oonveyed, and more. He displayed the
rarest of judgment and fortitude tonignt
when he declined to put his men on
board a train stolen at Council Bluffs by
the engineers and flrmen of the Union
Pacific. It was a Union Pacific engine,
with Union Pacific cars, on a Rock
Isla.id track. Kelly declined it, be
cause he said he had not yet broken any
law and did not intend to start it here.
There was great excitement here all
day, and it was intensified at nightfall
by the news that a train had been cap
tured to relieve Kelly. Crowds thronged
tbe streets, and an immense open air
mass meeting was held. Rumors of tbe
calling out of the federal troops, of the
state troops, of deaths in Kelly's ranks,
and of every conceivable nature, kept
tbe crowd on a tension hard to under
stand, but no unusual disorder ensued,
and, ai if by a miracle, the clash that
seemed inevitable was avoided, and
Kelly's army slept in camp at Weston,
waiting for daybreak to march to Coun
cil Bluffs, whence a new,.start will be
made on faot.
Quiet was restored in the three cltiei

camp of Ketly'a Oommonwealere, at
Weston, lowa, 14 miles east of Council
Bluffs. At 9 o'clock the signal agreed
upon, the ringing of church bells and
blowing of whittles, was given, an
nouncing that Kelly's army was still at
Weston, unable to secure a train for the
east. Inside of five minutes 1000 men
gathered at Jeffsrson square. They
were quickly organized and the march
was quickly taken up. At every street
recruits were received, formed into
companies and provided with banners,
Tbe column had been preceded to Conn

While the column was marching Gen

St. John said be was not in position to

in the hands of the president of the

Prominent men suggested thai tbe

The column matching to Kelly's army

Duryea told the committee he had done
all possible to give transportation, but
