Assistant Attorney General Peyton
Gordon, who was sent out from Wash
ington to press tho charges ngainst the
Phelps Dodgo company, leaves this
morning for Santa Fe, which is taken
as ample corroboration of tho report
that the cases will not como to trial
.luring tho present term of court. It is
said that tho prosecution is not yet
ready to proceed with the trials and it
is certain that tho defenso has not had
time to prepare for them.
There were no new developments m
the land cases yesterday, although what
purported to bo facts as to tho indict
ments placed on secret filo wero made
semi-public' Inst evening, showing that
there existed a leak somewhere in the
official court machinery. Tho matter
will undoubtedly bo called to tho ut
tcntion.of Judge-Nnva this morning by
tho United States attorney. J

Ellinwood, counsel for tho Phelps Dodgo

Lato this afternoon tho Goldfleld Mine
Owners association issued nn ultimntum
to tho miners in Goldfleld, in tho shapo
of a set of resolutions adopted 'at a
meetlugwhich had been in progress nil
day. The resolutions, which embody a
now scale of wages, showing a lowering
of tho scale of about twenty per cent,
aro ns follows:
'Resolved that tho mines of tho dis
trict ro-open upon 'tho wage scale agreed
upon and that the following rates of
wages bo adopted as tho scnlq to 'bo

this association in or around nny mine,

which contains an agreement thnt tho

tho time he is working a member of
Goldfleld .Miners' union, or any other
union connected with the Westcron Fed

trict resume operations Thursday with
the jneu who agree to tho foregoing con
ditions and thnt all old employes bo
given the preference at nil mines, pro
viding that such employes present ip
plications Thursday.
Eeduco Cost of Living.
"Resolved, that it is tho sense of tho
association that the cost of living in

twenty per cent from what it now is
and unless this bo dono within a rea

struct and opern(o a gencrel merchan

The association announced that if

ber 12, it will employ men from such
sources as it may bo able to secure

The oxecutivo committed of tho Min
c. u",on lla3jecn in session nearly nil
day, but no statement has been issued
in answer to the ono sent out by the
mine owners, tho contents of which
had been anticipated by tho minors.
It is the belief of the miners' union
expressed tonight nfter tho issuance of
the owners' statement, that no attempt,
will bo mado by tho owners to do more"
than clear thq minps of water that hnsr
accumulated during tno present week.
Whether an .attempt will bo mado to
prevent this much being done, is some
thing that cannot be determined to
night, but the men say positively that
no violence will be resorted to and no
disturbance mntlo on Thursday when
the mines 'aro to bo, re-opened.
Whether the union will undertake to
renew negotiations with tho mine own
ers in nn attempt to bring about some
sort pf a compromise beforo Thursday
is something that has not yet been dist
cussed by tho cxecutivtf committee- of
