Ilie Operators and Men Tell Different Stories Concerning the Agreement of Idst Spring The Miner's Life Anything but an Easy One The Fight Will No Doubt Become a Nut tonal One. Brazil, Ind., Doc. 16. The situation in the bituminous coal regions of In diana, in which some 20,000 miners are on a strike, is a gloomy one for the strikers, and its outcome, may bring the wolf to the door of many a dolver in the bowols of the earth in adjacent states. The Indiana strike is one of desperation. according to the stories of the old-time men, and certainly the outlook is one of pinching hunger, if not actual starva tion, cold and nakedness. Tell Different Stories. " The mine operators say that the pres ent strike is in violation of an agreement maue ny tne men last spring not to ask for an advance in wages for one year, and that, in view of this fact, they will not negotiate with the strikers. The lat ter say that the mine owners took ad vantage of them in the spring, when they were not prepared for a strike, to force them into signing an unjust scale, and that in refusing to keep that con tract any longer than necessary they are no more blamable than they would be to turn upon a highway robber when op portunity offered. They declare that the miners of Indiana have been more oppressed and ground down than those of any other state in the Union; that their wages have been less; that they have been subjected to all sorts of op pressions; that tlieir condition was little better than that of Russian convicts in Siberian mines, and that they struck for more decent treatment in sheer despera tion, preferring starvation to further submission. Firm, Though Hungry. Though their committeemen are try ing to hide the fact, it is nevertheless true that many of the men and their families are already on the verge of starvation, subsisting on one meal a day, and have boon doing so for two weeks. The relief received thus far has been very scant and in some places the strikers are totally without food, the mine own ers having undertaken to freeze them out by refusing even to sell them coal. In the face of all this, however, the men talk with a grim determination to fight it out to the death, if needs be. There is hope, however, that this will not become necessary, as the national executive board of the Coal Miners' As sociation of the United States has at last recognized the strike and approved it and has issued a call to all of its mem bers to contribute to the relief of the strikers. May Hecome a National Fight. This broadens the scope of the fight. It has been stated that mine owners in adjoining st.itcs have been supplying contracts for the Indiana mine owners. This will be investigated by the board and if it can not be clicjitjd i i any other way the miners in those states will be called out also. CANDIDATE FOR VICE PRESIDENT.

Washington, Dec. 16. President Harrison is about to take a most import ant step in the commercial dealings of this country with others. It is nothing short of a proclamation now being pre pared, practically placing an embargo against idl countries which have not made reciprocity treaties with the United States under the provisions ot the McKinley act. The procUvtuntlon will be iwiued on the 1st day of JanuAry next, which is less than three weeks of. It will attach retaliatory duties po sugar, molasses, coffee and tea imported from those countries which hare t ailei to take advantage of the reciprocity clause. This proclamation will be of more im portance in its commercial effect Uaa the negotiation of a dozen treaties, fot it effects many countries, and practically clows our custom house gainst the chief articles of exjHirt of several nations. The reciprocity section which empowers the president to make this proclamation, is as follows: With a view to secure reciprocal trade with countries producing the following articles, and for this purpose, on and aft it the 1st day of January, 16V2, whenever and so often as the president shall be si.t isllcd that the government of any country producing aBd;ea)MrlaaTugasa, snolaaaM, coffee, tea and hides, raw and uneured, or any uf such articles, Impose duties or other exactions upon the agricultural or other products of the Uuited States whluh, in view of Mia free introduction of such sugar, Ptolatsee, coffee, tea and bides Isto the L'nitjJ States ha may deem l be reciprocally unusual and uarsoeehl. be shall ha the power, and It shall his duty, to suspend, by proclamation lis that effect, the provisions of this art re lating to the free Introduction of sure sugar, molasses, coffee, tea and hide, the production of such country, for sunh time as he shall deem just, and in stirh pase, and during such suspension, duties shall be levied, collected and paid upon sugar, molaffsrs, coffeo, tea and hides, the product of, or exported from such desig nated country, as follows: The act then specifies the discrimina tory duties which may be imposed. Th'e are seven-tenths of one cent per pontvt on sugars not above No. 18 Dutch stand ard, and ono and three-eighths cent p pound on Migars above No. II Dutch standard. On coffee the discriminatory duty is throe cents per pound: on tea, ten cents t pound, and on all kinds of hides one and a half cents per pornd. Who It Will Affect. The proclamation will be it silly (im portant in its effect on the grat tea im tKirts of China and Japan, the tuormnns riide products of the ArgenML Republic, and the sugar and coffe r. relucts if Uruguay, Paraguay and wrtl mil r southern countries. CVna and Jarx might have secured muiasi'jc of t! is ten cents per pound duty .-i iem. bnt they have fail-vi to take advantage of the reciprfH-ity clause, and the pioclam ation will lie specially directed against them. The A vgentine Republic is the great exporter of hides to thhi country. The average vidne of importations la seldom short of 14,000,000. Other conn tries which will suffer by the pr-iai v tion are Kayti r.nd the Hawaiian. Wan. Is, with their great sugar products. nd the Danish, Dutch and French colonies t the south of tliis country. I.ncky Ones. The proclamation will also be import ant In securing to the countries which have embraced reciprocity the full ad vantage of the United States markets In engar, tea, coffee and hides. The coun tries which thus fur have accepted re ciprocity or are now tiegotiartna; treattssj to that end are llrnr.il, Ssnto Doming, CVsta Rica. British Columbia. Porte Rico, British OnJ nv Guatemala, Co lombia. British Honduras, Venemela, fkinador, I'ern, Mexico, British Wee Indies and Nicaragua. Asidn from the commercial impsrfc ance of thia proclamation, i wJl popu larly be accepted as offset tir r the Tmtt criticism directed at the pr.Tiut'a mew sage because It wholly failed to mtntiva reciprocity. This lies been ndehr strued as an effort on the part of Ifr. Harrison jo ignor Secretary Blaise's re ciprocity plan. It sppears, however, that the president fully agrees with Ms. Blaine on the importance of a rerlpreo ity program; so much so that he desires, t j treat it specially in the proclamatiea of Jiui. 1 rather than cover it np in a general messago.
