FEARS COAL STRIKE OPERATORS REJECT ALL PROPO SITIONS OF THE MINERS. Coal Barons Claim If They Raise Wages They Win Have to Raise Price of Coal and They Claim the People Cannct Afford the Raise at Tnis Time. The propositions of United Mine workers ot America for a readjustment of wages and conditions in the an thracite coal fields, as a whole have been rejected by the operators. As a counter proposition the operators sug gest that awards made by the an thracite coal strike's commission, the principles upon which they are estab lished by the commission and the methods established for carrying out their findings and awards, shall be con tinued for a further term of tnree years from the Ist day of April, uuo. The present agreement terminates March 31 of this year. Announcement of the anthracite op erators' decision and their counter proposition was made in a long formal statement which was given out for puo lication. This statement, which in cludes the correspondence on the sub jects at issue between President John Mitchell oi the United Mine workers, acting ior the miners, and George F. Baer, president of the Philadelphia & Reading Coal & Iron company, for tne operators, discusses the miners' propo sitions in detail. In every instance tne contention is made by the operators either that conditions in the coalfields do not warrant the change proposed by the miners, or that the questions at issue already have been passed upon by the stride commission. Cannot Increase Wages. "We can not increase wages with out advancing the price of coal and we are not willing to advance the price of coal," is the reply to the demand for a general increase in wages. In conclusion, the statement says: "It has been our hope, and we trust the public expectation as well, that the effect of the exhaustive investiga tion and findings of the distinguished citizens who constituted the anthracite strike commission would be to estab lish a just and permanent adjustment of the relations between tne operators and their employes. Therefore, we re ject the suggestion that an entirely new and untried system should be made which is only to last one year. "It is not to aie interest of the em ployers and employes, nor of the pub lic, to have the mining business as well as the general business and com fort of the people seriously disturbed by these yearly contentions. "Neither the public nor the opera tors can stand these progressive and enormous increases in the cost of the production of anthracite coal, followed necessarily by corresponding increase in the price. "It is peculiarly fortunate, there fore th,at existing conditions have all been the result'of arbitration by third persons; that neither pu.'.ty can say that it has not had due consideration. There can be no doubt that the good of all concerned will be served best by adhering to the results thus reached." GOOD SHOWS AT SPOKANE. Bookings at the Spokane Theater for the Next Two Months.

PRACTICED W® PHILOSOPHY. lie Could Sw Misfortune* In Their Humorous Anpect. "Thank goodness for a clothes-line!" exclaimed Eric Gordon, fervently, as he and his wife were putting the finishing touches on a week of packing, prepara tory to moving out of their house. "That's what the Thurstons would say. I>id you know they call that room they live in their 'one-room Hat?' When all the chair and u\bles are full, they stack things in a corner and say, "Thank goodness for a floor!'" "Mercy!"said the tired-lookijig young woman who was resting for a minute on a packing-box. "How do people live so?" "Adaptability to circumstances and the knack of turning the humorous light on things. They have a mighty good time—all owing to their philoso phy. Now isn't it better to rejoice over your thouglitfulness in forgetting to pack this clothes-line than it would be to lament because we've lost that trunk strap?" He tipped up a trunk, and pro ceeded to rope it stoutly as he went on: "If we can acquire the habit of being amused by things which nag most peo ple; if we can learn to enjoy lying awake wheii we can't go to sleep; if we can look on the noise which dis turbs us as a kind of music " "So easy to preach!" murmured his wife. "Erie, do you know that it's go ing on midnight? Mother will repent having asked us to sleep there if we don't come soon. O Eric, do you know you've left out that vase on the trunk behind you?" "Yes; I couldn't flnd a place where I dared pack it. I'm going to carry It in my hands." "The idea! You think more of that vase than of everything else we own!" "Maybe. It's our choicest possession, I guess." He glanced admiringly over his shoulder at the rare piece of glass. Then he asked, abruptly, "How am I going to cut this rope? I want to put the rest of it round that box, and John Blake has walked off with my knife." "And everything in the house that might cut is packed, und everybody in the neighborhood is asleep!" "Don't you suppose there's any sharp edged thing lying around?" "I'm afraid not," she answered, du biously, and together they made a fruit less tour of the rooms. "I might gnaw it," hazarded Gordon, humorously, picking up the rope and trying to break it. As he did so his foot slipped and one arm flew out, striking the cherished vate behind'him. With a lunge he reached for it, only to give it a blow that sent it crashing Into fragments on the hard tiling of the hearth. "O Eric!" gasped Mrs. Gordon, and waited for him to say the rest. There was a half-minute of silence. Then, with a grim twinkle, he picked up a Jagged bit of the beautiful rain bow-hued glass. "Thank goodness for something to cut this rope with," he said, quietly, be ginning to saw the clothes-line apart "There's nothing more to pack now, Dolly, and we can get right over to your mother's and have a good night's sleep."—Youth's Companion. THE ISLAND OF PATMOS. Where St. John, the Beloved, Wrote Hl« Revelation*. The isles of Greece, "where burning Sappho loved and sung," are forever reappearing in history. Just the other day it was the ancient Lesbos, called in modern times by the name of its old-time capital, Mitylene, at which the allied fleets of Christendom planned to make a demonstration against the Turk. Factional fights be tween the sympathizers of the Sultan and the Greek patriots in Crete every few months threaten to make the haunt of the Minotaur the scene of International complications. Samos has been in the limelight several times since the Greek war for independence, and the investigations of European and American archeologists in Delos, Aeglna and Euboea have kept these islands In the public eye. Very few, in fact, of the members of the Grecian archipelago, barren and untenanted though they are. have entirely drifted out of notice. Even the least known of them all In antiquity, hardly mentioned by the prehistoric writer, but made famous by the visions of the best loved of the apostles, Patmos, is frequently famil iarly spoken of, though seldom visited. For throughout the length and breadth of the Christian world many edifices stand in commemoration of St John. Great and small, humble and grand, cathedrals, churches and chapels, they cover a period of history extending from the day when the conversion of Constantine made Christianity the offi cial religion of civilization down to the present time. At one end stands the little chapel built by the piety of the simple fishermen of Patmos above the "cave where St John passed the long days of his banishment from the main land of Asia Minor. At the other are the central arch and the columns of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, now being erected at the cost of a king's ransom and years of thought and patient toil. The contrast betv.een the capital of the new world and the barren Island in the Grecian archipel ago, between the wealth of the twenti eth century and the provincial village of the Roman empire, is typified by the unllkeness of the two structures. High up on the steep hillside of the little Island of Patmos Is still to be leen to-day the natural cave in which St John lived for many years and wrote his Revelations. The cave, rough ly divided Into two compartments, la cat deep Into the solid rock, the walls ax» damp with the natural moisture of the earth, and the only light come* from a single candle burning before an undent shrine. There is still pointed out in ttie solid rock a smooth, round hole, which was used by St. John for a pillow, and dim tlv above this, seen wlieu the light is raised, is a long tissure running diagonally across the ceiling. Through this fissure the spirit descended and inspired tlie Revelation. "BEAUTY AND THE BEAST." Hon n Pretty Old Story I* Misread and Misinterpreted. When a lovely woman weds a rich, coarse, cruel man, the cynical modern observer exclaims, "Beauty and the Best I" The characterization is a wick ed misreading of one of the loveliest of myths, a story as fruitful of wisdom to-day a 9 when it sprang out of the early life of the world. Beauty was a good daughter and a brave woman. Her father lost his for tune, and she set herself to serve him. When prosperity promised to return to him, she begg&d a gift of roses rather than of Jewels or laces. When he again fell into trial, was captured by the Beast and forced to promise one of his daughters as a ransom, Beauty at once offered herself as the sacri fice. In the palace of the Beast, surround ed by every luxury, but not knowing what fate awaited her, she never for got her old father, dreamed of him nightly, and at last begged leave to go to see him and return. Although she was persuaded to stay a week beyond her leave, she came back loyally to the palace of the Beast The poor crea ture was half-dead of grief for what he believed to be her loss, and the sight of his pain and his delight gave her courage to avow her recognition of his noble qualities, her love for him, and her resolve to be his wife in spite of his hideous exterior. Instantly the Beast was transformed into a handsome young price, freed from an evil charm by the devotion of the brave woman, and Beauty and the prince came into their just inheritance of Joy and peace. The symbolism of the myth has a profound truth. The Beauty who would work a charm upon the Beast in man to-day must also possess the simplicity which prefers the rose to the dia mond, the industry which does not fear poverty, the filial loyalty which will not flinch from dangerous duty, the in tuition which sees the great heart with the ugly form, and the courage which dares all for love. When the woman of to-day and to morrow has all these powers at her call, we shall see, not the hideous mod ern parody of Beauty and the Beast, but the perennial repetition of the love ly old story in which, led through trials by a brave and virtuous woman, "they all" live happy ever after. —Youth's Companion. A Historic Ley. There resides, in Washington an old man who saw service in the Civil War as a colonel, although in after years he came to call himself general, hose only wound in action was a slight scratch on his leg. Nevertheless, this wound has always been a matter of great glory and pride to him, and he has nursed it ever since, and has grown lamer every year that the mem ory of his bravery might ever be with him. One afternoon, when he sat at his club, nursing the injured leg, a fel low clubman of recent acquaintance sympathetically asked: "Lame, general?" "Yes, sir," was the reply, after an inexpressibly solemn pause, "I am lame." "Been riding, sir?" "No," this time with rebuking sternness. "I have not been riding." "Ah, I trust it was not due to a fall on the ice, general?" "No" came in tones of ferocity. "Perhaps, then, you have sprained your ankle?" With painful slowness the old fel low lifted his pet leg in both hands, set it carefully on the floor, rose de liberately from his chair, and looking down upon the unfortunate questioner with mingled pity and wrath, burst forth in almost sublime rage: "Go, sir, and read the * history of your country, sir!" An Odd Race. An exciting form of winter sport In which Canadian boys excel, Is barrel racing, and it is great fun I can tell you. These races are on ice. Ordinary barrels, with their heads removed, are placed in regular inter vals along the race course, for about a quarter of a mile. I Then, at a given signal, all the boys I skate for the first barrel. Many reach it together, and, as each skater must pass through all the barrels In ordei to win, there is quite a scramble for first turn. Sometimes a barrel wheels complete ly around while a boy Is working his way through it, and when he comes out, he is so confused that he skates off in the wrong direction. Usually the laugh of the spectators makes him realize his blunder, and he quickly turns about and tries to make np for lost time. It is quite an exciting sport and an amusing one also for the spec tator, as the boys and barrels bob about In the most ludicrous fashion. | The men will go on till the end of time giving their girls novels and "Ln dlles" during their engagements, and then wonder after marriage why they, don't own a cook book. | When a girl flirts with a man she makes a fool of herself and trie* to make a fool of him I THCWuXLY 1327—Edward 1,1. of England compelled to resign the crown. 1504—Pope confirmed by a bull the de crees of the Council of Trent. 1579—Hutch Republic proclaimed.
