ALL RECORDS ARE BROKEN As Regards Number of Men and Their Orderly Behavior. LOWRY SHOWS THE WHITE FEATHER Telegraphs the Governor He i'as Reason to Fear Violence—Governor Takes Prompt Cognizance—West Virgin a Being Canvassed by Leaders. i Pittsburg. Aug. 2.—The stvtklng miners have broken all records, both as to num bers attending their mass meeting and the excellent order and law-abiding be havior they have exhibited. Too much, praise cannot bo given them for this lat ter conduct. It is conceded by all that In former times bloodshed and confusion would have emsued, considering all the circumstances the miners have been placed under during the strike. It is the hope of all wejl-wlshers of the strikers that this peaceful warfare will continue throughout and until the contest is settled definitely. The mass meeting of miners at the McCrae school house today was the largest during the strike and probably the largest gathering of the kind ever seen in Alleghenny county. More than 5, 000 striking miners met for an all-day ses sion and labor leaders harangued them in various tongues, while bands of music served to stir up enthusiasm to the high est pitch. From early morning miners of every nationality were gathering at the school house. They came in big bands and small ones, but the one that set the camp wild with enthusiasm arrived at 10:25 this morning fi;om Turtle Creek. It consisted of 1,600 miners from that camp, and when they came in sight there was BUoh cheering as has net been heard since the strike started. They came down to the camp at the school house with bar ds playing stirring airs and banners waving in the breeze. Cheer after cheer went up from the camp and the marchers return- d them with a will. When the miners of the two parties met there were some wild scenes. Men rushed around shaking Ivan,ds, shouting and even embracing each other. The crowd that -had gathered was so much larger than the men had antici pated that they were wild with Joy. A few minutes after the artval of the Turtle Creek delegation the speakers ar rived In carrlag s. They were M. W. Spick, president of ithe Painters and Decorators' Unioni; W. N. Carney, vice president of the Amalgainted Associa tion: Mrs. Mary O. Jones, female agi tator of Chicago, and M. J. Counahan, cf the Painters' and Decorators Union. In addition to these the leaders of th miners wrere lined up to speak as the occasion demanded. There was a rumor in the camp that Sheriff Lowry would appear with deputies and force the me t Ing-to disperse, but it was evidently un founded. The speeches were not of an inflammatory character, and the big crowd was orderly during the whole day.' It was announced that but twenty nine men were at work today at the Plum Creek mines, while only two or three were In the Sandy Creek mines. The policy of the miners Is to form camps at these mines as well as at Oak Hill and maintain large parties on guard. President Dolan announced that he could get land from private parties on which to pitch his camps. The feeling in the camp was one of triumph. The miners claim they are on the high road to success and the enthusiasm which was apparently slumbering yesterday was at fever heat today. J. B. McCoy, a prominent member of The typograph ical union, extended the sympathy and financial support of the printers of the country, and said the organization had made a per capita assessment for five weeks to be paid for the benefit of the strikers. A large number of the men who at tended the meeting wer- nearly dead from hunger. Some of them had eaten nothing since 4 o'clock yesterday, and the commissary wagon had not arrived when the meeting was over. It was not until nearly 5 o’clock that the wagon carrying the provisions got to the camp. When It arrived there was a rush for bread that would put to shame any foot ball rush that was ever seen on the gridiron*. After the meal was over and the men had satisfied their appetites, they went back to their camp at Turtle Creek, where they rested in a quiet and orderly mann-r, preparatory for the work tomorrow. Two new camps were instituted this fternoon after the meeting. One at ?ium Creek will be known as Camp Re sistance, the one at Sandy Creek will »e called- damp Isolation. Each camp n the besieged district will be kept constantly supplied with guards. Head quarters, as heretofore, will be at Camp Determination at Turtle Creek. One of the notable features of today's nrocession was a wagon drawn by four horses bearing diggers from the Souler mines. On either side was a banner ad vocating free speech and peae ful unity. The delegation marching on Plum Creek were under the impress! in that they could not inarch with a banner unless tb: American flag was carried at ■th? front. A buttoni-hole flag, the di mensions of which were but a few inches, fastened to a small stick, was carried at the head of the procession, when the march-rs reached the e nter of the school house. The force of deputies was kept busy during the entire night. Every move was watch'd, ahd trouble st em d to be in the air. Both sides feel there Is a cri sis near at hand. Officials of the New York and Cleveland Gas Coal company gave out the statem nt tonight that their forces wer increased in tile Tur tle Creek and Sandy Creek mines, and that more men were at work in the Plum Creek mine than there had be.ni since the movement started. The trial of President Dolan, who had arrived early this morning, on a charge Of riot and unlawful ass.mblag-, will be held at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon before Judge Semmes of Turtle Creek. The miners' officers have retained at torn-ys and the case will bo bitterly fought; THE RIGHT OF SPEECH, Said Mahon, Was His, and He Would Exercise That Right. Charleston, W. Va„ Aug. 2.—A d legate ! meeting of the fnlmers was held at Mont | ginnery, twenty-five miles east of here today. There were thirty-two delegates present and twenty mines were repre sented. The meeting was addressed by W. D. Mahon, of Detriot, who is in charge ■ of the work of organizing miners In West Virginia; Chris Evans, one of his " (Continued on Eighth Page.) THE PEACE NEGOTIATIONS Between Turkey and Greece Is Given an Airing, THE MARQUIS OF SALISBURY The Conquered Territory Had Been Assigned to Greece by International Agreement and Should Be Recognized. London, Aug. 2.—The Marquis of Salis bury, replying in the house of lords today to the liberal leader, the Karl of Kim berly, who questioned the government as to the state of the peace negotiations be tween Greece and Turkey, outlined the status of the Constantin pie exchange? of views, oecasslorjally referring to them in sarcastlb'tones. The premier said It was no wonder that the patience of many peo ple was sorely tried by the delay. The complexity qnd mqjtiplicity of th? nego tiations, he argued, might, however, ac count for their iength. Continuing Lord Salisbury explaintd that the peace the powers were trying to arrange was r,p ordinary agreement be tween a conquerer and a conquered coun try. Tlie territory conquered to the Turkish army was one assigned to Greece by International arrangement and th r? for - the powers’ voice In regard to Its dis posal was recognized by the situation. Turkey was right In demanding security against Incursions such as those which brought about the war and for a rectifica tion of the frontier on a stratgic bas's was a reasonable demand. It (was also reasonable to hold that the Gre?k com munities should mot be placed under Turkish rule. The premier further asserted that her majesty’s ministers believed these ques tions had been accpted and Turky had accepted the frontier line traced by the military attaches of the embassi- s of the powers, though fhe premier shared Lord Kimberly's belief. Speaking of the Indemnity to be paid to Turkey by Greece, the premier said: “There eom.es In th.? mysterious and diffi cult question of the German bond holders. We do not think that any inter national duty. lies on us to provide for their payments, though I admit they have •been long unpaid.” Lord Salisbury further said: “The credit of Greece in the European market for a long time will be exceedingly i small and some form of eon.rol for Greek ' sources of revenue is inevitable. I can not say that negotiations in that direc- | tion have advanced very far, and I must admit that the question may be a source j of very considerable delay." With reverence to Crete, Lord Salisbury said .here was no use for the powers to 1 attempt to arrange a form of government ! until the more Important controversy had I been adjusted. The present attitude of ! Crete seemed tube a favorable one to an agreement so far as the Christians were concerned, but the two creeds were no nearer together than they had been for i many .centuries. The only solution, he said, seems to be to dig a ditch actoss the i island, with the Chris-Ians on one side ! and tire Moslems on the other. Our ob- ' ject is to arrange what has has been promised, taking oar? to be just to both sections. We are not inclined to admit merely because the Moslems are in .he minority that their interests are to be neglected. Lord Salisbury says he fully agrees with Lord Kimberly that Crete was in a dan gerous position. An element of danger, ; howevef, did not arise, he insisted, -be- j cause the island was mixed up in the af- i fat™ of the Ottoman empire, bu't rather from the terrible division among the Cre tans. a division which might yet require a power greater than all the sovereigns of Etirrvpa to banish it.

LIVELY SPECULATION On the 'Frisco Wheat Market—The Ce real Took a Big Jump. San Francisco, Aug. 2.—There was some lively speculation on the local wheat market today and it scored an other big advance. The oprion market opened at $1.46 for December, and $1.47% for May, but jumped, to $1.46% ar.d $1.48. At 11:15 December op ned at $1.46 and sold up to $1.48%, gut receeded to $1.47% and closed at $1.47% bid. May opened at $1.47%, reached the $1.49% mark and declined to $1.48%. Considerable -xclte ment was occasioned on ’change by the rumor that Inquiry was being made for ships to carry wheat to Buenos Ayres, the capital of the Argentine r-public, w-hlch was accepted as confirmatory of the report that the Argentine crop was poor. THE QUEEN BRINGS NO NEWS. Victoria, B. C., Aug. 2.—The steamer Queen arrived from the north early to day. She brought no late news from the mines, but reported 400 people encamped at Skagaway Bay and fifty at Dy-:a. They are unaible to get goods taken Into , the Interior, as the packers cannot handle the business. There will be a te.rr bie • rush there when the boats which left here | on the Queen, seven In number, arrive. ! It is safe to say not half of the men will gat away from Skagaway Bay this sea- ; son, as even •with the large number of horses on the way up, it is impossible to handle alt the freight.

Mr. McLaurin said it was no such th}ng, that he would defend Ellerbee at all times and that Ellerbee Intended re moving the police from Charleston, but was prevented by a combination of oir cqmstances.
