Exodus of Miners Causes
Alarm to Operators.
Railroad Presidents Meet at
New York and Put Up a
Bold Front—Guard Shoots
and Kills His Companion.
Tho anthracite operators, while say
ing they are not worried by the proposed
departure of the adult mine workers, for
whom the soft coal men and other
unions can obtain work, are very much
disturbed by the prospect, which means
that unless they give In and grant con
cessions the mines must remain Idle.
Many labor men are of the opinion
that the proposed plan will prove the
most effective yet conceived In bringing
the strike to an end, while the business
men are hoping that tho efforts of all
who havo Influence with tho operators
will bo redoubled In order to got them to
grant concessions or submit tho dispute
to arbitration.
President Mitrhpll Is expected to re
turn to Wllkesbarre tomorrow. Moan
while the district committees will ar
range the plans for distributing the re
lief fund to the locals, and the locals
will appoint the several committees re
quired to take charge of tho work of
distributing supplies.
There are several questions for tho
board to sottle regarding the amount to
be Issued, tho number ellgiblo to relief,
and tho way It shall be given.
Some of tho incn make objections to
the proposed plan of tho locals giving
out provisions and would rather havo
the money direct, while merchants who
have bceu carrying tho miners on thoir
books since the strike began believe the
men should havo tho privilege of pur
chasing where they like.
As It Is evident that by buying In bulk
from tho wholesalers the local unions
can save money, It Is considered prob
able that this will be done.
Several contributions for the strlko
fund were received yesterday by Secre
tary Wilson, at Indianapolis. District
13, lowa, sent $5,000; tho Boilermakers
and Iron Shipbuilders' National Union
sent $518; local union of Mine Workers,
of Glofi Carbon, 111., $500; local union of
Jackson Hill, Ind., $200; Districts, 111..
$100; local union at Rosedale, Ind., SSO.
The weekly meeting of tho presidents
of the coal carrying companies was held
yostorday at New York. Tho confer
ence lasted over two hours, during
which the strike situation was discussed
In all its phases. Tho railroad presi
dents agreed that John Mitchell would
not bd able to make the strike fund &
success, and therefore decidod to keep
up tho waiting policy until the strikers
return to work. Almost overy railroad
had a representative at the meeting.
After the ponfornnce Mr. Baer. said:
Tho musket used by Major John I'.ut
trick at the fCortli bridge, In Concord,
on April 19, 1775, has been presented
by his two great-grandchildren, the
only remaining members of the family,
to the state of Massachusetts, and It Is
to be deposited in the statehouse ill
Boston for permanent preservation.
"Faslioda, though an important post,

"What wo did today Is of no interest
whatevor to the public."
President Fowler said: "Tho policy
of tho operators does not contemplate
any attempt at bro&king the strlko by a
resumption of work at the present time.
We are rather inclined to wait until the
minors grow tired of the strike and re
turn to work of their own volition, as
they will ultimately do."
It was learned from others present that
the railroad presidents have decided on
a waiting policy. According to tho
operators, they do not believe that the
miners will bo able to collect a fund of
$500,000 evory week with which to pay
tho sttrlkors, as had been arranged by
the Indianapolis convention.
They say that It was one thing to
make pledges and another tiling to keep
them. They are of the opinion that the
strike fund will last one or two weeks,
and that will be the end of it.
They also said that when the strikers
would ascertain that thoy would receive
no money thoy would return to work.
James Thompson, a coal guard at the
No. 9 colliery of tho Lehigh and Wllkes
barre Coal Company, at Sugar Notch,
was shot and Instantly killed yesterday
by Edward Jones, a fellow guard, who
says the shooting was accidental. Jones
had beon relieved from duty at tho col
liery gato, and was walking toward the
breaker extracting the cartridges from
his Winchester rillo. One was jammed,
and in trying to get It out tho trlggor
fell. Thompson, who walking across a
trestlo forty yards away, was shot
through the right breast and killed.
Both men came from Philadelphia,
and Thompson lias a wife and two chil
dren there.

Rev. Henry McCrea on the
Operators' Attitude.
Famous Episcopal Minister
Expands the Avowed Pos
ition of the Spokesman of
the Coal Kings.
In the current Issue of tho Episcopal
Recorder, of Philadelphia, Rev. Henry
McCrea contributes an article under tho
caption of "Tho Coal Barons' Creed."
Ho takes the statement of President
Baer, of tho Reading Railroad, that
"anthracite mining is a business and
not a religious or sentimental proposi
tion," and says:
"This is a magnificently condensod
statement of the Operators' Creed, a
creed which is substantially hold today
by all tho great controllers of the
natural resources of the earth. Wo
suggest tho following expanded state
ment of tho principle, for tho dutiful
consideration of mankind:
"The coal mines of Pennsylvania are
our property. We are working them
neither for scntimont nor religion. It
is a matter of pure business, outside
the pale of moral considerations. Wo
aro digging the anthracite hills to find
gold, not bibles. The happiness or
misery of tho men we employ is of no
concern to our stockholders. To mix
up business with humanity is tho short
road to bankruptcy. We are not pos
ing as philanthropists; wo are dlggors
of coal. If a few thousand minors, morn
or less, aro choked by fire-damp or
emaciated by starvation that Is their
"There are few prizes in life's grim
game, and most men must bo satisfied to
draw a blank. Pain, woariness and
stupified lives aro In tho structure of
things. We aro not here to alter these
Iron conditions, but taking thorn as thoy
are, wo press on to tho golden mile post.
The stern vordict of history is "right
forever on tho scaffold, wrong forever
on tho throne." Lot tho world under
stand that the anthracito operators aro
not going into partnership with truth on
a scaffold.
"We control dollars and cannon, and
theso aro tho twin forces that subjugate
tho earth. Many a reformer has im
molated his lifo on tho altar of his con
victions, only to find a barren grave.
ThoGraachi defied tho Roman oligarchy,
and perished by the spears of the system
they assailed. John the Baptist tried
to reform the morals of Herod, and mot
his death In the royal dungeon, under
tho blacks rocks of Makor. History
tells of a youthful Galilean, to whom
Satau offered tho kingdoms of tho world
In a moment of time. In Ilis high
enthusiasm lie madly refused tho offer,
and ended his life in disastrous ecllpso,
on the skull.shaped mound of Golgotha.
"Away, then, with sentiment from
tho halls of the anthracite legislation.
Napolean Bonaparte was right, that
Providence Is on the sido of tho strong
est battalions. Wc shall moot tho hun
gry, wistful oyes of atraving families,
with linos of bristling stool. Tho
baronial castle has crumbled, and the
feudal serf Is gone, but tho inonoy king
still can roar his moats and towers over
tho dark veins of anthracito wealth.
"Are there children growing lip
around our collieries stunted by half
nourishment, brutalized by Ignorance,
ruinod by poverty? What is that to us?
Wo are thoro for business, and deal not
in sentiment or religion. Shall we de
stroy tho golden posibilitios of the hour
and lower tho market value of our
stocks and bonds, by diverting capital to
tho uplifting of men? Nay! Bo firm,
brother stockholder, and strengthen
your hand of steol. Build higher your
linos of barbed-wire fences, set your
cameras and flashlights for an attack on
tho stockade, dig deeper into tho en
trails of tho anthracito mountains, and,
though cemeteries line your track, march
on to victory under the golden star.
"Preachers tells us that God is watch

footsteps, save on the far distant sands.

our golden pile before the sunset, and

Barons, and where is the power that is

rises before us a wonderful painting. It
pictures tho Conquorors of the Ages
riding abreast down the road of time.
Behind them, as far as the eye can
reach, Is a forest of bristling spears.
From tho plundered treasure house of
tho Persian kings, Alexander rides,
armed to the teeth in the wardress of
Macedon. From the forests of Gaul
dashes Julius Caoser, concentrating in
his Iron visage the world-crushing spirit
of tho Tiber. From a pyramid of human
skulls rises the swarthy face of Gonghis
Khan. And there rides Napoleon, like
a spectre from tho flames of Moscow,
where his legions lie burled in their
shroud of Ice.
"Tho Conquerors, in the painting,
cover the full breadth of the road; and on
either side, stretching into the illimit
able distance, 1110 en lilo In ghastly lines,
lie millions upon millions of uaked dead.
On the Conquorors' facos is written
cruel and merciless resolve. On tho
facos of tho million dead Is written the
stony imprint of despair—all that
thoy felt In life, tho death damp con
gealed upon their brow.
"Underneath this painting, so magni
ficent in Its tragic appeal, we would
write the Coal Barons' Creed, and add
one more figure to the imperial horsemen
on the road of time—the anthracite con
quoror in that forest of spears, riding on
to his eternity of retribution.''
