MINERS IN CONVENTION Sentiment Against Calling Out Soft Coal Men. Mitchell Opposes Violation of Contracts and Favors Heavy Assessments for the Anthracite Workers' Fund About 1,400 delegates, representing more than 350,000 members of the United Mine Workers of America, as sembled in Tomlinson Hall, Indian apolis, yesterday to consider what should bo done to aid the striking minors in the Pennsylvania anthracite (ields. They were to decldo whether or not a general strike that would in a short time stop every factory and loco motive wheel In the country,should bo called. There were 2,184 votes In the convention. Many of them, of course, were cast by proxy, some of the dele gates holding as many as five proxies. Of the 2,184 votes 70S represent the strikers in the three anthracite districts. Tn President Mitchell's speech he de clared against a general sympathetic strike. This has special significance, because many delegates came to the convention without Instructions, and it is believed they came with the Intention of following tho policy laid out by the leaders of the national organization. A motion to adopt the suggestions of President Mitchell provoked a long de bate, in which the general sentiment was against the ordering of the strike. Tho men from the anthracite region finally made a request that they be al lowed to hold a caucus to determine upon an expression of opinion as to what they thought the convention should do, and asked an adjournment of the convention for this purpose. Thoir request was grauted and tho adjourn ment taken. Tho men who were in favor of a strlko were In a decided mluority in the con tlon. Three speeches were made by members of the anthracite districts ask ing that the soft coal meu walk out, and twice as many were made by the anthra cite men urging tho soft coal men to continue at work. On account of the widespread Inter est of tho public in the result of tho convention the sessions are open to all persons who dosiro to attend. MITCUBLI/S SUBSTITUTE. The main poiut under consideration Is Mitchell's substitute plau for a strike, and whether tho miners will be satisfied with It. On this point he says: "1 am firm In my conviction that the strike In tho authracite fields can and will be won without repudiating our solemn contracts with the bituminous operators, provided the bituminous miners, will rise to the occasion and do their full duty by their struggling fellow workers, and with this in mind 1 desiro to submit for your consideration the fol lowing specific recommendations: "First. —That the national secretary treasurer be authorized aud directed to immediately appropriate $50,000 from the funds in the national treasury and place it at the disposal of the officers of Districts 1, 7 and 9.

"Third.—That an assessment of not less than $1 per week be levied upon all members of local unions, the amount so levied to be collected at tho earliest possible moment and forwarded to the national secretary-treasurer. "Fourth.—That an assessment of 25 per cent be levied upon all national, district and subdlstrlct officers whose salaries amount to S6O per month or more. "Fifth.—That an appeal bo made to all American trade unions and to tho general public for financial assistance to carry the strike through to a success ful Issue. "Sixth.—That a committee be selected from this convention to draft an address to the American people, setting forth In proper form the policy of the miners' organization and appealing to the people to bring all possible pressure to bear upon the officers and stockholders of the anthracite coal-carrying roads to com pel them to treat considerately the ap peals of their employes for arbitration. "Firm In my conviction that tho adoption of these recommendations and concurrence in this policy will insure success and conserve the best interests and the welfare of our organization, I submit them to you and bespeak for them your earnest consideration, with the sincere hope that whatever policy you decide upon the honor and integrity of our organization will be preserved." FIRST ATTEMPT IS A FAILURE. The first attempt of tho operators to breake tho strike has utterly failed. One of tho mine bosses at Nanticoke gave It out Wednesday night that tho company had all the miners it wanted and that No. 7 breaker would surely start up yesterday. A large crowd of men and boys collected when tho whistle blew and the machinery in tho breaker started. But no miners entered the mine and no coal was mined. Some coal was run through the breaker. This was stock coal, which was picked up In the roadways of tho mines by tho bosses. It is said they have been engaged for two weeks In getting tho refuse coal In cars ready to be hoisted to the surface. For a while it did look as though the breaker was doing business, but when the deception became known the strik ers gathered outside of tho stockade and cheered derisively. ONE ARRKHT YESTERDAY. Andrew Brazlnitskl, of Upper Lehigh, was arrested yesterday by Constables Zelglor and Woodrlng, of Ilazleton, on a warrant Issued by Alderman Heidenrich, before whom he was charged by John Hodgson, of North Centre street, with assault and battery and riot and unlaw ful assombly on Monday morning. Brazinitski waivod a hearing and furnished S2OO ball beforo Squire Shov lin for his appearance in court, John Shigo qualifying as bondsman. Married or Not Marriod? In yesterday's Atlantic Clfcy news of the Philadelphia Inquirer appears the following Item: "Beaux and belles were numerous on the promenade today, notwithstanding that June is considered the most pro lific of all month/for blushing brides aud happy grooms. Among the strol lers today wore Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Birkbeck, of Freeland, Pa., who are spending the summer at tho Osborne. Mrs. Birkbeck was formerly Miss Kath erine Ilolliday, a belle of the town from which they came, and this Is probably the first Intimation that her many frionda will have had of tho fact that she is now a wife. The couple came hero a fortnight ago and wore quietly wedded by & local tainistnr at the hotel. Some of their friends who have come here are extending congratulations." Mr. Birkbeck returned alone on Sun day evening from Atlantic City, where ho spent tho previous two weeks, lie says the Inquirer's correspondent has libeled him and threatens to institute a suit for half a million dollars damages against tho proprietor of the paper.

When Mrs. John Roberts, of Tama qua, closed a bureau drawer she pinched the tall of her pet cat, which hung, howling dismally, until Mrs. Roberts turned to Its rescue. Then, maddened by pain, the cat sunk teeth and claws Into the woman's arm, which was terri bly lacerated, and is now swollen to twice its natural size. For the tenth time In ten years John T. Allen, of Wflliamsport, is suffering from a broken leg. The present Injury Is tho right leg, and that limb has now been broken the same number of times as the other. Allen stooped over to straighten out a piece of carpot on bis porch when the bono snapped. Wllkesbarre has saved $7,000 by re advertising for bids for ropaving 30,000 square yards of the city streets with asphalt. When the first bids were open ed a dispute arose and it was necessary to advertlso again. The second bids were much lower than the first.

Some weeks ago tho borough of Ed wardsvillo and the upper end of Plym outh township were flooded with hand bills containing names of men who refused to leave thoir work at tho Pettebone and Woodward collieries of the Delaware, Lackawanna and West ern Company. The top of tho circulars contained a heading, reading "Unfair workers," and the circular gave the names of the persons. The matter was followed up by detectives and John R.
