Doctors Not So Sanguine
Medical opinion does not share In such
easr optimism Trained opinion is tsnt
the first treatment of the Kings malady
has been successful In Its first stage
and that the evacuation of the abscess
has not been followed by the immediate
deadly sequel that was at one time
The fact of the presence of pain In the
wound Is so far encouraging because if
the gangrene had set in there p would
have been no pain but It must always
be kept In mind that both tubes still
remain in the body and many hours must
paES before an attempt is made to re
move the stitches
His majestys present diet cannot be
continued indefinitely although the In
testines must be vastly repaired before
stronger food can be administered
Lastly it remains a fact that the sur

by Justice Edward II Foster of this

afternoon at the request of District At

on circumstantial evidence the full na

the latter arrived he remained In close
consultation with Detective Held until

The three at once entered a carrlase
and started on a round of visits which
ended Ihit afternoon when the warrant
had been issued
Statements Sworn To
Today It developed that something
more important than usual was under
way as the persons interviewed were
formally sworn by the Justice before
they began to recount for the hundredth
time perhaps what they knew or
thought they knew
It Is said that Detective Tield made
a running statement of the result of
his Investigaticn The car locks taken

Their Importance is said to lie In the
fact that they were or a Kind that had
the boat been even partl turned over

Somo things have been taken from

Caucus Condemns Re
publicans for Failure of
Cuban Reciprocity
Charges That Majority in Congress Is
Dominated and Controlled by Trusts
Oppose Adjournment of Congress
Until Legislation Is Enacted
Trusts and tariff will be the leading
isucs of the Democratic party In the
1 comlt Congressional ccrsiijS This
Is ram the resolution adopted
av 6V x caucus 01 uouse
crats In wmch they denounced the Re
publican majority for Its failure to en
act a reciprocity tariff with Cuba and
also because It has not enacted any leg
islation looking toward restraining the
power of the trusts They further de
dared their willingness to remain la
session until these questions are actd
About eighty of the mlnoIty members
were present and Representative Hay
the chairman of the caucus committee
presided Representative Griggs the
chairman of the Congressional commit
tee presented a set of resolutions which
were drafted by Representative Jackson
of Kansas Although the meeting was
entirely harmonious there was some dis
cussion by Representative Richardson
Representative Griggs and others The
resolutions were unanmlously adopted
and are as follows
Resolved first That we condemn the
Republican majority In Congress for
their failure to pass a measure provid
ing reciprocity with Cuba
Supported by Democrats
The bllf which passed the House of
Representatives was heartily supported
by the Democratic majority after the
protection to the sugar trust had been
removed by the solid Democratic vote
aided by a small minority of Republican
members As It passed the House the
bill carried relief to Cuba reduced the
price of sugar to American con
sumers and struck a heavv blow
at the notorious and obnoxious
sugar trust The refusal of tho
Republican Senators to consider this
measure unles the protection to the
sugar trust could be restored gives evl
aence that the President and Republican
rarty in Congress were willing to refuse
reller to Cuba and totally Ignore Ameri
can consumers rather than abandon
their alliance with the trusts
The failure of all reciprocity legisla
tion with Cuba rests upon the Republl
can administration which la willing to
reduce the duty on the raw srgar of our
producers but unwilling to destroy the
sugar monopoly
Controlled by Trusts
Second that the Republican majority
in Congress Is dominated and controlled
by the trusts and monopolies which havo
the great industries of our country In
their grasp Is shown by its actlonj H
passing an anti trust bill through tre
House of Representatives In the Fiftj
slxth Congress in the closing hours of
the session the Senate refusing to con
sider same as a subterfuge to tide over
the elections of 1900 That the bill has
Leen abandoned and they have ever
since and do now refuse and fall to
bring any measure to suppress the
trusts or to favorably report any of the
numerous anti trust bills Introduced b
Democratic members duilng this Con
Third that we favor the Immediate
passage of a measure to amend the pres
ent anti trust law so as to more fullv
protect trade and commerce against un
liwful restraints and monopolies and
also a measure to reduce th duties on all
articles and commodities mauufactured
and controlled or produced In the United
States by a trust or trusts so as to
destroy any Illegal combinations and to
reduce the rate of duty on any articles
or commodities manufactured In tho
United States and sold In a foreign coun
try more cheaply than in the United
Fourth we oppose the adjournment
of Congress until the measures mention
ed above have been enacted into law

VILKESBRRE June 17 The oper
ators today continued their plan of
making arrests In all cases of assault
or intimidation against the workers at
the collieries At the Instance of the
Delaware and Hudson Company thirty
four warrants were Issued this after
noon for men who were concerned In
the attacks upon the workers at tho
Ollphant colliery
These occurred Wednesday night and
jesterday morning and on each occa
sion Sheriff Shadt had to go to the
scene to disperse the crowd Three of
the warrants were served this after
noon one being upon Stephen Reese a
member of the United Mine Workers
tiistrlct executive board
The three had a hearing before Alder
man Miller Reese was fined 20 and
costs and held under G00 ball to keep
the peace anj the others were fined 10
and costs and held under 3300 ball They
paid the fines and furnished the bail
Prompt Arrests Made
This morning saw a disturbance In
this city followed by prompt arrests
A large crowd attacked Tudor Roberta
end Reese Griffiths fire bosss at the
Stanton colliery and beat them severe
ly before they were rescued by the po
lice and the men taken to the colliery
Seven were arrested and this afternoon
held under ball- They could not furnish
bail and are no A- locked up
The D L W Company and tho
Lehigh Valley Company men whose
names were posted as unfair and the
list signed by the names of the United
Mine Workers committee swore out
seven of the fifty warrants today for
the arrest of the committee on the
charge of criminal libel and the others
will follow
The United Mine Workers officials at
the headquarters here are certain that
a national strike will be declared bas
ing their statements upon facts received
from the soft coal districts and especial
ly the States where an interstate
agreement exists Pennsylvania Ohio
Indiana and Illinois President William
Carne the head of the Wilkesbarrs
local one of the best Informed men on
the soft coal situation said today
Not only will the soft coal contract
men yield to the vote of the delegates
but also the districts not under con
tract embracing Mississippi Iowa Mis
souri Kentucky portions of Pennsyl
vania Colorado Tennessee and portions
of the Virginias will stand by the deci
sions of the delegates at the convention
Have Nothing to Lose
The non contract districts have abso
lutely nothing to lose and have every
thing to gain It would be a foregone
conclusion for them to come out
It appears today that there is a reso
lution regarding which President
Mitchell for reasons of his own has
not said anything It allows the soft
coal workers to strike without break
ing their contracts It was passed at
the recent Interstate convention at In
The gist of It Is that If soft coal from
a union district Is sent to an anthracite
market in the event of an anthracite
strike or If Eastern railroad engines
which use anthracite replace It with
soft coal the national board shall hava
tower to declare a strike either sec
tional or national or take any other
action necessary to aid the anthracite
mine workers
It Is true said President Mitchell
when shown the resolution tonight
This makes it possible for the national
executive board to declare a strike with
out calling n national convention
Restricting Output
The restriction order which cuts the
supply of No 2 district in central
Pennsjlvnnla to two thirds what It Is
now has not been extended and no
other district Is curtailing its output
The restriction order In No 2 district
went into effect today at the mines
where they have no coke ovens and all
the men will be idle tomorrow Presi
dent Mitchell heard nothing from ths
district today
The Dusky Diamond colliery at Beaver
Meadow and the Ilutcblns colliery near
Wjomlng resumed work today and
there was no Interference by the strik
District Presidents NIchoIls Duffy
and Fahey together with a number ot
hoard members gathered hero tonient
and tomorrow morning will hold en Im
portant conference with President
Mitchell The union oluclas feel it
necessary to make greater exertions than
at present to keep tho men togetner
Plans for doing this will be discussed
There v Ill also be outlined a plan for
stopping work at the washerles If It U
possible There are now eleven of theso
operating and producing some 3000 tons
a day This Is supplvlng the local trada
and there Is gradually growing less tha
belief In the mine workers ability to
prevent the production of coal
