Railroad Presidents Have Only a Few More Days to Fulfill Their Promises to Compel Men to Surrender. Tho presidents of the coal-carrying railroads yesterday held their weekly mooting In New York city, and through their press bureaus they aro claiming a complete victory over their striking employes. They have given out a state ment that there will be no arbitration and that J. Pierpont Morgan will not interfere. They also allege that miners are applying dally for their former posi tions. This is the sum and substance of the last bluff of B&er and his col leagues and foreshadows that they are nearing the day when the strikers will be offered satisfactory terms to resume work. Tho meeting was conspicuous by the absence of one-half of the railroad presi dents and the representatives of the in dividual operators. President B&er, of the Reading; President Fowler, of the New York, Ontario and Western; Presi dent Uuderwood, of tho Erie, and Presi dent Truosdale, of tho Delaware, Lack awanna and Western, were tho only men who went Into the secret confer ence. There was a change in the meeting place and Instead of tho Contral Rail road Company of New Jersey offices a meeting was held at Delmonico's cafe and tho situation was thoroughly dis cussed. It was given out that the re ports received wore of a more optimistic character, and notwithstanding the let ters the coal officials are receiving it was decided to continue tho fight on the same plan as has been in force since the trouble began. Previous to the meeting President Baer called on J. P. Morgan and had a long conference with him. After leav ing him Baer went away for an hour and then returned and hold a second short conforenco with the financial king. Mr. Morgan refused to state what oc curred, but it is alleged that he ap proved tho manner in which the rail road officials have conducted the strike and assured the officers that they had his hearty co-operation. The meeting of tho coal officials was not a lengthy one. No one was present excepting those whose "no surrender" policy has been tried, consequently har mony reigned throughout the session. By 3 o'clock it was over and tho various officers had returned to thoir offices. President Baer, as spokesman, said: "There is no change In the situation and we aro going ahead as we have been for the last three months, it is improv ing every day; more men aro coming back daily. I cannot say exactly when there will bo a break in tho strike. There is no change in tho policy of tho operators. The issues do not admit of arbitration and arbitration, therefore, no matter from what source it emanates, cannot bo considered. Nothing has oc curred or can occur which will change the policy of tho operators. We are simply waiting until the miners come back." A significant fact yesterday was that every effort of the reporters to procure from Mr. Morgan a statement that he would not interfere In the strike result ed in failure. George W. Perkins, of the firm of Morgan & Co., who was present at the conferences between Haer and Morgan, also refused to deny that a settlement is soon probable. MUST RESUME THIS WEEK. To carry out the promises of Presi dent Uar a desperate attempt is to be made to resume work by the Reading Company at Shenandoah. Everything is in readiness fur the test of strength that will come within a day cr two when the attempt to resume work is made. More men are said to bo behind the stockades than at any time since the strike began, and the guards at all the workings have been increased. The POLITICAL ANNOUNCEMENT. JTpOB COUNTY COMMISSIONER— M.

Apply to William Higgius, Freelaud. strikers are prepared to defend tho mines with pickets and tho soldiers now encamped there are in shape to bo transported and effectively reruoblllzed. Loaders of tho mino workers aro mak ing bitter complaint against what they term the partisan attitude of the militia officers in command at headquarters. Miles Doughterty, member of the na tional executive board, said: "General Gobin and many of the other officers openly take sides against us. The soldiers, if wo read tho law right, aro supposed to bo absolutely neutral in this matter. Their sole concern is to pre serve the peace, not to orate against the miners. From what I have heard I would infer that many of thoso fellows are Itching for an opportunity to shoot at human targets." Several reports of trouble were made to headquarters by operators, but in every instance the civil authorities said they had mastered the situation. It has been decided that the Ninth regiment will be next called upon iu the event of further disturbance. CONFERENCE OF UNION LEADERS. A conference evidently of great im portance, was held yesterday at Wilkes barro by President Mitchell with District Presidents Fahey and Nichols and last night District President Duffy arrived at headquarters. It is understood the conference will be continued today. Neither President Mitchell nor any of the district presidents will say what tho conference was about and this, in view of tho fact that Wall street yesterday sent out a report that tho operators are weakening, has caused the belief that it pertains to an important question in the strike. "I have nothing say about what was done," said President Mitchell; "it was just a regular meeting." But tho fact that it lasted from early afternoon till 7 o'clock last evening and that tho strike is at such a crucial point makes it evident that it was a mooting out of tho or dinary. President Mltcholl would not say that he had received no word from tho oper ators. Yesterday afternoon there came to town a man who registered as Charles S. Vossoy, but who or what he is It was impossible to ascertain, lie had a con ference with Mitchell and all Mitchell will say of it Is: "It was nothing about the strike." lie left since for Now York. WALL STREET HEARS SOMETHING. The Now Y'ork financial correspond ent of tho Philadelphia Record, a writer who has been vory bitter against the strikers for many weeks past, says in bis letter today: "It is not improbable that Baltimore & Ohio will be the holding company for Reading, and in these circumstances there was more strength and activity in the latter stock than for some time past. The simultaneous strength in the other anthracite coalers was probably tho outcome of some very definite rumors of a disposition among the coal operators to settle the strike on a basis of moder ate concessions to the men. There is some reason to believe that the biggest buH influence in tho street will strongly favor such a course." BELIEF FUND IN GOOD SUAFK. Representatives of the Philadelphia Itdcord find that "tho ranks of the United Mine Workors remain unbroken, and that the strikers are hotter fortified at present than ever. The treasury of tho relief fund is in better shape and arrangements are made for contribu tions to it until the strike is over, suf ficient to warrant the assurance that not a striker or his family will want, if the strike continues until next summer. One thing is certain, tho men stand firm in their demand, and if the operators are getting reports that tho men are weakening they aro being misled." Lecture on Friday Evening. Emmet D. Nichols, Esq., of Wilkos barre, will deliver a lecture in the English Baptist church at 7.30 o'clock Friday evening. Mr. Nichols is an orator of recognized ability and many Freeland people have already had the pleasure of hearing him speak. His subject on Friday evening will be: "The Evil Effects of the Growth of Largo Cities or the Liquor Traffic lu a New Light." It is needloss to state that the spoakor will handle his subject iu an interesting aud entertaining style. The Weasel Escaped. (Janio Warden Hugh Malloy caught a weasel yesterday In one of tho traps which ho has set near No. 11, Sandy Run. The animal was brought to his home on North Centre street last even ing and a large crowd of people gather ed to 900 it killed by one of Mr. Malloy's famous dogs. As soon as tho trap was oponed tho weasel darted into tho crowd and caused a stampede, which hindered the dog from doing his work. In the excitement the weasel escaped and has not yet been recaptured. POLITICAL. The county committee of tho Work ingmen's Alliance held an important meeting at Wilkosbarro Monday. Thore was & full attendance of the committee men. As a result of this meeting it is almost a certainty that no candidates for county offices will be nominated, but candidates for the legislature in each of the six districts of the county will be named. At tho next genoral meeting of the alliance tho names of the candidates selected to run iu each of the districts will be submitted for endorsement. The meeting will be held this evening at 8 o'clock. It is understood that every election district in the county will bo thoroughly organized and it is expected that every district will be represented at tho meet ing this evening. *■ t t One faction of tho Democrats of the Sixth legislative district held a conven tion at Conyngham Monday afternoon. There were three candidate for tho nomination of representative, Hon. P. M. Moyles, Laurel Run; George L. Fenner, Ashley, and D. B. Peters, Bobbie. Peters withdrew after tho , first ballot. The second ballot j resulted: Moyles, 26; Fenner, 10. Moyles was nominated. Resolutions wore passed strongly en dorsing Robert Pattison, tho administra tion of tho county finances by Controller McLean and the selection of William 8. McLoan as chairman and Charles A. Shea as secreatary of the Democratic county committo. Quay and the machine wore strongly arraigned. The other faction is to hold a convention at White Uavun Soptembor 15. X X X M. T. Walsh, a candidate for the Democratic nomination for county com missioner, spent several hours in town yesterday. Mr. Walsh is a resident of Edwardsvillo, from which town he comes well recommended to tho votor9 of the lower end. Until recently ho lived at Kingston, where ho was born thirty-one years ago and whore ho met with an accident iu tho mines wjiich necessi tated the amputation of his right leg near the thigh. Tho candidate is a well-educated young man and will capably fill the office if placod thore. X X X Griff Jonos, one of Upper Lehigh's staunchest union men, is being urged by ids friends to become a candidato for stato representative from tho Fourth district. They desire him to run on the ticket of the Workingrnon's party, which intends to nominate legislative candi dates in each of the six districts In this county. Mr. Jones has tho matter under consideration and will likely accept the nomination, if assurance is received that tho uniou workingmen of tho district will support him. Tendered a Euchre. In honor of Misses Mary Martin and Phoebe M. Riley, of Hazlcton, a euchre party was given at tho homo of Miss Alice Riley In Upper Lehigh Monday evening. Tho lady's prize was won by Miss Phoebe Riley and tho gentleman's prize by Emmet McGill, of Philadelphia. Thoso present were: Misses Florence and Lynn Wituian, Scranton; Margaret Brenneu, Woathorly; Marce King, Mauch Chunk; Kate Challanger, Mary Lesser and Lulu Kromiues, Upper Le high, and Messrs. DePiorro, Hayes, Touipson, Boyle and Charlo9 Riley, Freeland; A. Challenger, Lesser Hitikle, Upper Lehigh; Emmet Mc- Gill, Philadelphia, and Howard White, Wilkosbarro. A musical program was rendered in which Misses Bonomo's vocal solo, "Stay in Your Own Backyard," delight ed all. Miss Martin distinguished her self as a porformor upon tho piano. All departed for their homes singing, "We'll Go There Again." Strikers Exonerated. Frank Docker, a guard euiployod at the Edgorton colliery, was yesterday placed under 552,000 bonds by Judge Holly, Lackawanna county, ou the charge of shooting Connolly, a foreman, and Forrest Crosstnan, Monday night of last week. Tho bollof had been genoral that tho shooting was done by strikers and General Manager Thorno had offered 81,000 reward for the perpetrators. Tho ovidence which led to Decker's arrest came from Crossman, who told Constable Neary In tho Carbondalo hospital that he distinctly saw Decker shoot, and recognized him at once. This testimony is strengthened by the fact that both Crossman aud Connolly were hit with shot and not by bullets. Decker on the night of tho shooting was armed, it is asserted, with a shotgun loaded with the saino size shot as wore extracted from Crossmau's eye and Connoll's leg.

This case is but one of thousands where the head of the house was re fused insurance, because he had kidney trouble. Mr. Yeisley had given up in despair when some friend recommended Dr. Darvid Kennedy's Favorite Remedy and it cured him. Mr. Yeisley writes: "My kidneys and liver were in bad condition and I was anxious for re lief. I had tried many remedies without success and when I bought a bottle of 'Favorite Remedy,'it was with but little faith in its ever help ing mo, but in a short time it effec tively proved its merit. Perhaps the best proof I can give that it has completely cured me Is to state that 1 have since been accepted by four different life insurance companies." The Rev. Mr. Yeisley is the pastor of the First Reformed church, of St. Paris, Ohio, and is as well tho editor of the St. Paris Dispatch. There is no question that Dr. David Kennedy's Favorite Remedy is the best and surest medicine in the world for dis eases of tho kidneys, liver, bladder, ad blood, rheumatism, dyspepsia and chronic constipation, as well as the weaknesses peculiar to women. It quickly relieves and cures inability to hold urine and the necessity of getting up a number of times during tho night.

As a result of the attack on August Scheuck at liazleton Monday morning, several of those whom it is alleged took part in the affair have been arrested and placed under bail. All of those who are accused of being implicated were given hearings boforo Alderman Ileidenrich, their names and the amounts of ball asked belugas follows: Robert Rickert, $900; Cooper Ochosk, $1,300; Elihu Day, formerly of Freoland, S'JOO, and Squiro Daniel McKolvey, S9OO. Richard Burke, John McGulre and Charles McGulre, who were also arrested, worn discharged. Tho evldonco against tho prisoners was of the most lliinsy character, and that the prosecutions are not sincere is shown by the fact that tho alderman, upon the advice of the corporation at torneys, accepted bail from men who acknowledged that they do not own a dollar's worth of property. Squire McKelvey appeared on tho scone in tho role of a peacemaker, but his prosenco thero was sufficient proof in the eyes of the alderman to Implicate him and heavy bail was demanded after the farcial hearing.
