The poor and my candidacy for something ye always have with thee! I'm a litte disfigured but still in the ring! This black eye was artistically executed by the Republican ele phant. See -that hump? That was raised by the Violent bump of the Populistic cow, and the reason I now take my meals standing up you will understand, dear friends, when I tell you I courted death by backing up to the heels of the Democratic mule. Allegorically speaking. Repudiated and kicked out by all the political parties. I am obliged to adopt the humiliating expedient of circulating a petition in order to get an office! Think of it, fellow citizens! A great man like me peddling a petition! Wouldn't that frost you? Do you blame me for turning against the old parties and accus ing them of being controlled by unscrupulous gangs? Haven't I sufficient justification for making this awful accusation? Well, I should smile. Look at my torn and bleeding political aspirations and weep. But what's the difference? So long as I can stand up I intend to run for office. That is my long suit—running for office—but 1 have others. Be sides, I've a fine assortment of grafts to fall back upon, which, if properly used, will bring success, and I guess I know how to use them. Fellow citizens, the paramount issue in this campaign in Ramsey county is my individual success. Don't let the tireless opposition mislead you on this great question. I am just as willing now as I have been in the past to promise you anything and everything for your votes. My promises, I'm painfully aware, area little below par, but I have plenty of cheap cigars, liquid refreshments and cordwood to deal out as hereto fore. You remember when I was reg ister of deeds I used to take you in the back room and explain to you what would happen if I went to the state senate. I made you farmers some whopping old prom ises and you bit like a hungry bass nips the kicking frog. Oh, you'r easy. What I accomplished at Bismarck—but that can be quickly told at some other time. Then came the Democratic nom ination for congiess and I pledged you my word of honor I would be elected if you would stand by me. You bit again! Oh, I'm a great con talker. You noticed, however, I wasn't so sure of the election that I re resigned my hold-over senatorship. Not me! I'm built too much on the plan of the old line Democrat who never resigns and seldom dies. I'm hot stuff, and little the smoothest thing that ever struck the toboggon. Evidence? My fel low citizens, there is an abun dance of it. Look at the graft I have on the military reserve! Who drafted the bill for the governing of that juicy political pull? Did you notice that wink? I'm the whole thing on that board, and I'm there for life. I'm a peach. The creator of this mighty uni verse made the kingly oak and the smallest grain of sand He made you and He made a sucker that swims in the lakes He made the towering mountain and He made the blushing rose He made me and he made a daisy. Don't forget the paramount issue. THE KURNUL. MORE MINERS QUIT. President Mitchell Says 6,000 Went Out on Tuesday. I0TAL NUMBER OS STRIKE, 118,000. Mine Owners Dispute These Figures, and Say More Men Are Working Than Leaders Are Will- Ins to Admit. Philadelphia, Sept. 19.—The leader of the strike says at the end of the second day that 118,000 of the 141,000 mine workers in the anthracite coal fields are idle. No representative of the mine operators makes a state ment for their side of the matter, but individual mine owners dispute the strikers' figures, saying there are more men at work than the union leaders will admit. Price of Coal Advances. The first advance in the price of coal as a result of the strike was made by the Philadelphia & Reading com pany Tuesday, 25 cents per ton being added. This advance was promptly met by the local dealers, who in creased the price to consumers 50 cents a ton. Trouble Feared. A cloud appears on the otherwise peaceful horizon in the shape of a re port from Harrisburg that a bitter feeling is developing between tie union and nonunion men in the Ly kens district, located in the upper end of Dauphin county, and involving about 2,500 mine workers. A Concession Granted. A concession was voluntarily grant ed the 5,000 employes of the Lehigh Coal and Navigation company in the region west of Mauch Chunk, who will hereafter work ten hours a day with a consequent increase in earnings. These men were unorganized and had not presented any grievances. Mines Abandoned. True to its declaration made before the strike was ordered, the Philadel phia & Reading company on Tuesday brought its mules to the surface in two mines near Shamokin that had been closed by the strike, and an nounced that they were permanently abandoned. This action makes it nec essary for the miners who formerly worked in these collieries to seek work elsewhere. Refuae to Strike. The action of the 400 or mo/e em ployes of the West End Coal company at Mocanaqua, near YVilkesbarre, in sticking to their work stands out prominently as the busy feature of an otherwise idle territory. They saj* they have no grievance, have always received kindly treatment from their employers, and therefore resist every effort to induce them to strike. Urges Arbitration. Father Phillips, the Catholic priest who has been an interesting figure in the strike, both before and after, made a statement to the public Tues day night, presenting an argument in behalf of arbitration and urging both sides to get together. President Mitchell's Statement. Hazleton, Pa., Sept. 19.—Following !s the statement issued by President. Mitchell on behalf of the striking mine workers: "Reports received at our office from dis tricts NOB. 1. 7 and 9 of the anthracite coal region show that there have been great ac cessions to the ranks of the strikers to day. In district No. 7 (Hazleton region)' not less than 1,600 mine workers who mined yesterday failed to report for work this morning, thus Increasing the total number on strike from 10,000 to 16,000 to day. In district No. 9 (Schuylkill) our forces have been augmented by 4,600 mine workers in addition to the 30,000 reported yesterday. The situation in district No. 1 (Lackawanna-Wyoming) is practically the same' as the first day of the strike, only 200 men remaining at work. Total num ber of men idle, 118,000. From every section of the anthracite region reports indicate that much dissatisfaction prevails among those who have up to this time failed to participate in the strike, and we confi dently expect that the number at work will grow less with each succeeding day until the mines shall be completely closed." Admit Magnitude of Strike. Scranton, Pa., Sept. 19.—A call at the score of offices of the mine operators here Tuesday showed all agreed upon the magnitude of the strike movement. There was a hope expressed that the split in the Hazleton and Schuylkill regions would serve to disintegrate the ranks and eventually bring about a solution that would put the mines to work to a large extent. Meanwhile they will do nothing to wards starting the mines. This is positively decided upon, and the su perintendents feel certain that the companies will maintain the position they haYe taken, Conditinos in the Lackawana district were practically the same as Monday in the miners' strike. Not a pound of coal is being mined, and the number of culm washeries at work remains un changed. The operators say they are not making any particular effort to work any of their mines, and have no immediate intention of importing men to take the strikers' places. Both Sides Unyielding. Hazleton, Pa., Sept. 19.—The second day of the anthracite coal strike failed to bring forth anything that would lead to the coming together of the coal operators and the striking mine work ers. Neither side 'has approached the other, and as far as could be learned there is no such move contemplated by either the operators or their employes. Unless there is a break in the ranks of eith'er it seems that a third party will have to step into the breach and try to bring the two forces together. Who that third party will be and what methods will be pursued with that end in view no one in touch with the situ ation can at this time say. First March of Strike. .—The first Hazleton, Pa., Sept. 19.- march of strikers in this region took place early Tuesday morning when about 100 men from McAdoo. Auden ried and Yorktown, headed by a brass band, marched through the South side en route to the Coleraine col liery with a view to inducing the men at that place to quit work.- The strikers did not attempt to force them to suspend work, but merely asked them to do so. In this the strikers were quite successful, as a number of nonunion men returned to their homes. The marching miners then »went back to McAdoo and dis persed. Will Keep Hands Off. Altoona, Pa., Sept. 19.—The anthra cite coal operators need expect no aid from the bituminous operators in their struggle against the miners. At a re cent meeting the operators of this dis trict decided not to meddle in the troubles of the eastern district. They are having plain sailing at present, and do not desire to court trouble. They have all the orders they can fill at pres ent, and some are behind because of a lack of cars during the summer. The strike will divert the cars to the bi tuminous field, and the operators are looking for the best busineas in their history this fall. All the miners are at work, and there is no talk of a sym pathy strike. Will Raise Money for Strikers. Scranton, Pa., Sept. 19.—The Carpen-, ters and Joiners of America, in nation al convention here Tuesday, adopted resolutions of sympathy with the striking anthracite miners and voted in favor of raising funds to help sup port the men. Won't Refuse to Hani Coal. Cleveland, 0., Sept. 19.—Grand Chief P. M. Arthur, of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, said Tuesday that he did not think.it likely that the engineers would refuse to haul anthra cite coal mined by_non-union miners. THE FIRST STEP. Germany Holds That Those Reipon. sible for the Chinese Uprising Should Be Punished. Berlin, Sept. 19.—The foreign office has sent a circular note to all the pow ers announcing that the German gov ernment considers that an indispensa ble preliminary to the beginning of peace negotiations with China is the delivering up of those who are re sponsible for the outrages. Berlin, Sept. 19.—The publication of Count Von Buelow's circular note, which was made through the Nord Deutsche Allgemeine Zeitung, was de cided upon because it was deemed best to let the world see that Ger many had nothing to hide regarding her real aims in China. The diplo matic corps here so interprets it. The note shows also that Count Von Buelow's sober and moderate views regarding the Chinese muddle and its solution have now triumphed over Emperor William's "more expansive plans." The Freisinnig Zeitung, call ing particular attention to a passage declaring that wholesale executions would be contrary to the civilized conscience, will say: "This is.in strik ing contrast with Emperor William's instructions to the departing troops to spare no one and to make no pris oners." London, Sept, 19.—As might have been expected, coincident with the ar rival of Count Von Waldersee in China comes the most important declaration of policy yet issued by any of the allies. As the Daily News remarks: "Ger many's circular note has turned the tables on Russia, whose evacuation pro posal has put Germany into an awk ward corner. Now, if Russia assents to the German note, she will be unable to continue, says the Daily New*, to pose as China's lenient, and forgiving friend while, if she dissents, Russia will lay herself open to the charge of reducing the punitive expedition to a farce. London, Sept. 19.—"On the eve of Li Hung Chang's departure," says the Shanghai correspondent of the Daily Express, wiring Tuesday, "he received a strongly worded cablegram from Lord Salisbury, declaring that the British government would insist upon the return of Emperor Kwang Su to Peking as an absolutely essential con dition of peace negotiations, without which the dissolution of the Chinese empire was inevitable. Lord Salisbury informed Earl Li that the allies de sired to preserve China, but that noth ing would divert them from their ir revocable intention of punishing those responsible for the outrages, whom they would, if necessary, pursue over all China." Hong-Kong, Sept- 19.—The German steamer Sachsen, having on board Field Marshal Count von Waldersee, commander in chief of the interna tional forces in China, and his staff, has tional forces in China, and his staff, has arrived. The field mar shal landed and was received by guard of honor of British troops. He made the usual official calls. Count von Waldersee Tuesday evening pro ceeded to Shanghai and from there to Taku on board the German cruiser Hertha. Election Issues In England. London, Sept. 19.—Mr. Joseph Cham berlain, secretary of state for the col onies, in a letter to a unionist can didate for parliament, says: "In my opinion the principal issues of the next general election are the merits of the war in South Africa, and the nature of the settlement which is to insure us against any recurrence of danger to our possessions in South Africa." Roosevelt at Bntte. Butte, Mont., Sept. 19.—Gov. Roose velt's special train arrived here about four o'clock Tuesday afternoon and the party was greeted very warmly. In the evening Gov. Roosevelt spoke at Columbia garden.
