be sanctioned by a lar'ge majority of

thracite mines will be of longer dura
tion, as no agreement has been reach
ed yet betviween rnine/s and operators.
/After negotiations were broken off
In New York March 13 between the
anthracite miners and operators noth
ing was done toward getting together
rigain until Sunday, when bothi sides
I'greed to meet in Philadelphia on
April 10 and reopen negotiations.
Now that the bituminous miners
and operators have agreed on a wage
contract for the next two years, it is
believed the anthracite controversy
soon will be settled when the miners
pnd operators get together in I'hila
delphia. The demands made by both
branches of the coal ininers were
xomewhat similar and it is thought
the anthracite forces will compromise
on practically the same terms as have
been agreed to in the bituminous in
The suspension does not affect all
of tihe mines in the South, as the
union is not strong south of the Ohio
river, as in the Northern States. The
mines of Wyoming, Washington, Colo
rado and Montana also will not be
affected because the union contracts
In those districts do not expire
April 1.
It is said the miners will lose
$1,000,000 every day they remain out
and that the suspension will cause a
loss on coal production to the country
of nearly 2,000,000 tons a month. No
formal notice by President White for
the miners to leave work as suspen
sion was automatic, since the miners
have no agreement to work after mid
pight Sunday when the contract made
two years ago expired. No trouble is
expected at any of the mines in
Commander of Vessel Said Expedition
Intended to Spend Another
Year in Antartic.
Wellington, N. Z.-Captain Robert
F. Scott's vessel, Terra Nova, which
carried the British expedition to the
antarctic, has arrived at Akaron, a
harbor in fanks pteninsula, New Zea
land, but has not brought back Cap
tain Scott or the members of his ex
pedition. The commander of lihe
Terra Nova brought instead the fol
J.owing brief message from (Captanl
"I am remaining in the antarctic
for another winter in order to con
tinue and complete my work."
The latest news sent back by Cap.
tain Scott to his base at McMurdo
Sound showed that January 3 he had
reached a point 150 miles from the
South Pole and was still advancing.
It was clear that had the explorer
delayed sending back notification of
his progress until he actually reach
ed the pole, word from him could not
have been received by the Terra Nova
before she was compelled to leave, ow.
ing to the setting in of winter and
the freezing of the Ross sea.
All on board the Terra Nova are
"Great disappointment was felt when
it was known that the Scott party
had been left behind.
The Axman Again Busy.
Columbus, Tex.-The railroad town
of Glidden was visited Wednesday
night by the "axman," claiming six
victims-Lyle Finucane, Ellen Mon
roe and four Monroe children, all ne
groes. The tragedy was discovered
after daylight. Lyle Finucane and
Ellen Monroe, mother of the children,
were found in one room on the floor
with their heads crushed. In an ad
Joining room the four children were
found, the oldest boy being on a cot
and the three younger children in a
bed with their skulls crushed. Blood
hounds trailed the murderers to a
small hut a mile away, and officers
arrested a man and woman, also re
covering bloody shoes.
Pros Carried Clay.
Henrietta, Tex.-In the local option
election held in Clay county Satur

throughout the county indicate that
the majority for prohibition in the

Cerebro-spinal meningitis leads with

The Tennessee Senator Was Promi.

Washington.-ltobe.rt Love Taylor,
United States senator from Tennes-.
see-"Fiddling Bob" to all the South
-died Sunday, unable to withstand
the shock of an operation for gall
stones performed a few days ago.
"Fiddling Bob" Taylor, so known
becauIse he played his way into the
hearts of his audiences, carrying his
violin wherever he campaigned, was
61 years old. He was born at Happy
Valley, in East Tennessee, but spent
most of his life at Nashville practic
ing law. He belonged to an office
holding family. His father was a con
gressman and commissioner of In
dian affairs and an uncle was in the
Confederate senate.
Once pension agent at Knoxville,
thrice governor of Tennessee, from
1887 to 1891 and 1897 to 1899, Senator
Taylor forged his way to the national
house of representatives, from the
same district that previously had sent
his father to congress and later his
brother, Alfred A. Taylor, whom he
subsequently defeated for governor.

Munitions Sent to Ambassador Wilson ;
at City cf Mexico to Be Sold to
Responsible Individuals.
Washiniton.-There were shipped
Saturday from New York 1.in)t Krag
Jorgenseon rifles and 1, 000,0) rounds
of ammunition to Amba:sador \Wilson (
at the City" of Mexico. The rifles
came from Watervliet arsenal and the
ammulnition from Frankford arsenal,
'hiladelphia. This shipment was
made at the request of the state de-.e
i)artment and under its direction.
State department officials explain this
action in this way:
A year ago when conditions became
unsettled the foreigners in the City of
Mexico, to be on the safe side in view
of the possibility of a riot, held a
meeting and organized a council of t
safety. The committee appointed ask
ed for arms from the Diaz government
and got them for the purpose of self
defense and the defense of that part
of the city where the foreigners re
side, where legations are and where,
if anywhere, a riotous demonstration
with the purpose of looting would oc- 1
Two weeks ago the foreigners .in
the City of Mexico again held a meet
ing and again took the same steps
for protection against the possibility
of looting. A council of safety con
sisting of nine well known foreigners,
mainly Americans, was appointed.,
When it came to getting arms it was1
found that they could not be obtained
of the Mexican government, and so
the idea of buying Krag-Jorgensens
was suggested and the matter was
laid before Ambassador Wilson, who
asked the state department to takei
up the matter and if practicable ship
the rifles. The Krags are to be so!ll
to the men in the foreign colony
the City of Mexico for $6.25 each ac:.
the ammunition for $1ti per 1,000
The rifles and amunition will be
entered at the port , Vera ('ruz and
shipped by rail to til - City of Mexico,
where precaution wi. be given by or-'
ders of the Madero g._' emrnmc-nt to see
that the shipment is not c(ature1. by
the insurgents while being slipped
from Vera Cruz to the City of Me:-:ic o.
At the war department it was fur
ther explained that these ar;:,s are
furnished under well-def,.e': in';tr;'l
tions to Ambassador Wilson. They
are sent strictly on his responsibility.
He is to see that they are placed only
in the hands of the reliable foreigners
living in the City of Mexico, and they
must be paid for. They are to be
used only for the purposes indicated,
the protection of the foreign element
when in danger from a mob. They
can not be used in any political or in
ternal revolutionary movement. The
ambassador is expected to report to
the state department the sale of every
rifle and the name of the purchaser
with his address.
West Texas Fruit Crop.
Alpine, Tex.-A thorough canvass
of many of the fruit farms in West
Texas reveals the fact that, while the
late cold spell did considerable dam
age to fruit in the valleys, that within
the shadow of the mountains was
practically undamaged, and even in
the valleys many fruit growers be
lieve that there will be a fair aver
age crop. The prospects are fine for
a splendid apple crop, and pears are
in good shape.

Mount Airy road, a figure creeping
stealthily through the undergrowth
was dimly seen through the mist
which overhung the mountain slope.
Close behind Lucas, the other men
brought their rifles to their shoulders
when, to their surprise, Allen stepped
out into the road, his hands upraised,
a pistol in each.
"I'm glad to got a chance to come

Bravery of Trucy Aubert.
Jimenez, Mex.-To the dashing
bravery and masterly tactics of Gen
eral Trucy Aubert the remnant of the
federal army which fought at Cor
rallto8 under Generals Salas and Blan
quet owes the fact that it was not en
tirely annihilated on the retreat to
Torreon. For two days Aubert, al
though outnumbered more than three
to one, has prevented General Orozco
from following up his victory of Sun
day last. Furthermore, he compelled
thile victorious rebels to retreat to
their base at Jimenez, where he kept
them busy until late Wednesday
night, when, under cover of darkness,
he withdrew hIis men to Atotonilco,
twenty miles west of Jimcnez. Ilis
