Coeur d'Alene City, II 11 ' ed Philadelphia, Oct. 1.—Late developments show that the efforts to bring about a hur ried settlement of the big coal miners' strike are still in a chaotic condition, While there is every surface evidence of honest intention on the part of the mine owners and operators to grant the more important demands of the mine-workers, the difficulties in detail in reaching the basis of a settlement grow more confusing, In a conference at Wilkesbane, an iin portant residential point of mining, rail road superintendents, big individual mine I operators and mine foremen were culied in to take part in the discussion. The | foremen were questioned regarding pow der, dockage, etc., indicating that the operators were endeavoring to reach a common ground where justice would be found for each side. So far as cau be learned no definite conclusion was reached, The general opinion among those in a position to comprehend the differences is that the settlement of the strike is yet re L„,. At. interests in».lv«i seemed to be willing to reach an early settlement, and concessions, it is under stood, will be readily accorded by both I sides m the controversy. - r The strike leaders are cautious in their movements, but so far as can be learned = have not taken the ground that trick*, y was being played, a precautionary notice of which point they had previously sent to all the strikers.
