Unless the Operators Mine Coal This Week the Mili tary Protection Asked for Will Not Be Continued. This Is the beginning of a week which It Is generally believed will put to a ten the claim of the operators that they will be enabled to start up their collieries If given protection, and the counter-claim of the United Mine Workers that the strikers will not return to work without concessions. Resumption of operations announced for today has been deferred until a later date, the operators concluding that too many of their men would be disposed to bold off until after the ex pected conference at New York tomor row. The plan now is to try and open up the collieries on Wednesday, as it is said that by that time all miners who build their hopes on the operators granting concessions will have been convinced that the coal barons are posi tive lit their stand. Meu in charge of the collieries claim that when once thoroughly convinced that the operators cannot be swayed in their determina tion those among the unionists who are wavering will return to work. Everything is being done by the mili tary authorities to enable the operators to prove that they can cut coal with proper protection. General Schall, com mander of the First brigade, which In cludes the troop* stationed In this re gion, promises ample protection to all In this section who are desirous of return ing. A failure to open the mines after Wed nesday will put the operators in a posi tion where they will have to give most excellent reasons or the officers of the National Guard will charge thein with inability to end the strike on the basis which they have claimed. They will be compelled to face the argument that, after being given the full protection of the entire division, It has been demon strated that the men Will bold out until granted concessions, and that it Is now up to the operators to admit that they are defeated. Some high In military authority de clare that Governor Stone will not al low himself to be played with, and that as soon as ho finds that the operators cannot "make good" he will not permit the state to be put indefinitely to the enormous expense of keeping the sold iers In the field. At th brigade headquarters at Tama qua Captain Porter has completed a mammoth map ot the entire coal re gions, and the section covered by the First brigade has not only every hamlet and colliery properly placed, but, through a system of movable pegs, the movements of the troops down to indi vidual companies are located to the very hour. Upon investigation by the officers of the militia it ha 9 been ascertained that the use of firearms at night, which has recently given the troops much concern, and which has been attributed to the strikers, has been done in many cases by the coal and iron police. Some of the foreiuost labor leaders of the country are traversing the regions Instilling new hope into the ranks of the strikers. Another mission of the visit ing labor leaders is to learn bow the relief fund Is being handled and to learn from personal observation if there 19 any distress amoug the strikers. After sev eral days' investigation in the Schuyl kill district those inquiring into the sub jects arrived at the conclusion that the relief fund is being handled in a most businesslike and able manner and that there exists at present no more distress there than at times when the mines are beiog operated. WORKING FOR A SETTLEMENT. There Is a strong hope in administra tion circles at Washington that the coming week will see plans perfected for tho settlement of the strike. Negotia tions are now in progress to that end. It is believed that President Cassatt, of the Pennsylvania Railroad, will be a controlling power In bringing about this settlement. Heretofore be has been kept lu the background, but thero Is reason to believe that strong appeal have been made to hhn to use his great influence to bring tho operators into a compliant mood. Secretary Root did not call upon the president until last evening, when he had a brief conference. It Is believed that the report of bis interview with J. Plerpont Morgan, which he sent from New York Saturday evening, contained about all there was to communicate and his talk with the president was merely supplementary to that. The secretary refuses to discuss his conference with Mr. Morgan. Senator Quay yesterday visited Wash ington, during which he talked with President Roosevelt for about an hour. The Philadelphia Press today says: "From a source that cannot be doubted it was learned yesterday that attempts of outsiders to end the strike are to be met quite a9 stubbornly as heretofore. The operators will hold their usual meeting In New York tomorrow and It is expected that plans will be formed to force more collieries Into operation, as it is known that promises of an in creased supply of hard coal have boon made to certain dealers." lIARKI,K GIVES 1118 VIEWS AGAIN. John Markle, leader of the indepen dent anthracite operators, made the emphatic statement In New York city last night that in spite of all the efforts put forth recently in behalf of peace tho strike situation remains unchanged. "More coal Is being mined each day," he said, "and the best thing the public can do if it would be relieved of the burden of high priced coal is to stand aside and let the operators and the min ers adjust their own misunderstanding. It seems by this time the public should recognize that fts meddling and the in terference of its representatives only prolongs the trouble. The strike would have been over long ago and the price of coal would bo where it was a year ago if thero had been no meddling by outsiders. The situation has been con tinually complicated." "Will not the visit which Mr. Root made to Mr. Morgan and the subsequent conference Mr. Morgan had with coal men briog about a change In the situa tion?" was asked. "I tell you that there has been abso lutely no change In the situation, except that conditions are improving In the coal region." "Is the strike not nearer a settlement now than It waß on Friday?" "There will never be a settlement as the public understands the word. That word must be eliminated. The strike will be over when the miners go to work. Tho position of tho operators has been unoqnivocally set forth from the begin ning and there Is no reason why it should be changod. It will not be changed. No outside influence can change It." MITCHELL SAYS MEN ARK FIRM. President Mitchell last night laughed at the statements made by the operators that they will be able to 9tart several more mines bofore the week ends and are confident of getting many men. "What else can they say," ho declared; "they must make a pretense of making gains. But, as a matter of fact, they are not., and the men are firmer and stronger today than they have been sinco the strike began." Louis N. Hammorllng, who has been an agent in the arrangements for bring ing about a peace conference, called on President Mitchell yesterday and had a long conference with him. After that he left Wllkesbarre and did not say where he was going. Mr. Mitchell re fused to discuss this conference. When the national president was told of reports that miners who wanted to re turn to work had been coerced at the meetings of the locals last week into casting ballots for a continuation of the strike, bo said: "It is untrue. The men voted as they desired; there was no coercion and no attempt to Influence them. We even Invited non-union men to the meetings to get their views, and they were free to vote as they choose." When asked today about a paragraph In the appeal issued on Saturday in be half of the miners by the American Federation of Labor, to tho effect that he had offered to leave the whole mat ter In tho hands of J. P. Morgan, Presi dent Mitchell said the statement was an error. Helping the Striking Miners. W. G. Gwyn and Dr. J. P. Kennedy, of Columbia, Pa., both of whom worked In coal mines, the former for a period of twenty-one years, are busily engaged in soliciting contributions for the striking hard coal miners.—Philadelphia North American. Dr. Kennedy's home Is in Drlfton and that he has interested himself In behalf of his former co-laborers is no surprise to his many friends In this section. W. B. Estoll, who was one of the brainy loaders In the miners' striko of 1887-88, is also working with his usual enthusiasm among his frionds in New Jersey and New York and has secured several splendid contributions for the miners.

Little has been beard lately of the relief fund which has been established by the union, other than the reports of some of the amounts which have been contributed to It by labor organizations and citizens throughout the country. Predictions were freely made when the fnnd was established that it would be an endless source of annoyance to the union and would cause jealousy and dis appointment among those for whom it was Intended to benefit. For a few weeks after It was put in operation the relief system was criti cised, mostly by persons who knew nothing about Its workings, but this carping suddenly ceased, and for tho past few months not an adverse criti cism has been heard. To those who have been permitted to examine tho relief system, tho perfect methods by which tremendous sums of money are handled each week and satis factorily divided between tho threo dis tricts, and by them distributed to their locals and by the locals to the individ uals on strike or made idle by the strike, the workings are a revelation and re bound with credit to tho general officers of the union who planned tho methods and simplified a most complicated prob lem. The Insinuations of those who are op posed to tho miners in their struggle, that the relief money would soon come to an end, have also been proven false and groundless, for It can be stated that the miners' union has more money at Its command today than at any time during the twenty-two weeks since tho strike began. Not only Is there more money in the relief fund than at any time 9lnce It was established, but there are more people interested now In main taining it at the present high level than ever before and there is scarcely a town or hamlet In the whole United States that is not preparing to contribute its mite towards the fund. If for any reason tho mine workors should be defeated In their efforts to se cure additional compensation for their dangerous labor, the relief fund will not be responsible for the non-success of the strike. The strikers are now re ceiving moro per week than ever before, and the arrangements made by the union are to 9teadily Increaso tho al lowance according as the weather causes Increased demands. So far the relief money has been almost confined to buying food and provisions, but it is reportod that in the near futuro the mine workors will receive special al lotments to be used in purchasing win ter clothing and shoes. To appease the steadily-increasing wants of over half a million people, and to do it In a manner which does not dis criminate and satisfies the beneficiaries, as has been and is still being done in the anthracite region, can only be ac complished by a system of distribution which must be marvelously perfect— and this 19 what the miners' rollof fund must be conceded. Candidates Visit Town. P. J. Finn and Jacob Schapport, can didates for commissioners; Jamos W. Holraan, candidate for register of wills, and John J. Moore, candidate for treas urer, accompanied by Attorneys M. F. McAnniff and Frank McGulgan and Daniel L.

Mc- Neils, of tho county committee, and other local Democrats, and were warmly welcomed by the voters of town. Tho candidates departed feeling fully satis fied that Freeland will do its share next month towards electing them to the offices to which they aspire. In the afternoon a meeting was hold at the Grand opera house. John J. Mc- Brearty, Esq., was chairman, and stirring addresses were made by Messrs. Hart, McGulgan and McAniff. Owing to the fact that a heavy rain-storm pre vailed during the afternoon the attend ance was not as large as it would have been had the weather beeu more favor able. Confirmaiion Services. Bishop M.
