MINES WILL CLOSE DOWN Philadelphia and Reading Company Will Suspend Operations Until the Trouble Is Settled—Other Managers Bank Their Fires. Pailadelphia, Sept. 13.—1 f, as Pres ident Mitchell of the United Mine Workers claimed last night, 112,000 of the 141,000 mine workers in the Penn sylvania anthracite coal fields were idle yesterday, it is certain that this number has been considerably augmented today by additions to the strikers’ ranks. Re ports from the four big districts em bracing the region are to the effect that fewer men are at work today than were at work yesterday and that collieries that worked fullhanded or nearly so yesterday are either badly crippled or shut down today. The weather has grown much colder since yesterday and this change is greeted with joy by the mine workers, who believe it will greatly increase the demand for Goal and thus force an early adjustment of the differences between them and their employers. Talk of arbitration is so persistent that the hope is growing that this method of settling the strike will finally be adopted, although the mine owners declare that they will deal only with their employes as individuals, and the strike leaders say they will insist upon formal recognition of the union. This difference would appear sufficiently strong to keep employes and employer apart forever, if persisted in. One little band of miners, in the Wy oming valley, those of the West End Coal company at Mocanaqua, number ing a few hundred men, stand out prom inently as the duly men at work out of nearly 90,000 in the Laokawana and Wyoming region. Efforts to induce them to join the strikers have failed. They say they have always been treated kindly, they have no grievance and they will therefore remain loyal to their em ployers. MEN THREATENED BY WOMEN Armed With Clubs They Visit One of the Collieries. Hazelton, Pa., Sept. 18.—The first march of strikers in this region took place early this morning when above 100 men from McAdoo, Audenreid and Yorktown, headed by a brass band, marched through the southside enroute to the Colerain colliery, 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 to. In this the strikers were quite successful, as a number of nonunion men returned to their homes. The marching miners then went back to MoAdoo and dispersed. A crowd or Hungarian women of Mc- Adoo, some of them carrying clubs, sur rounded the Crawford and Dugan mines this morning and requested the men working there to quit. Matters looked squally for a few minutes, but the women were told that the work being done there did not interfere with the strike and they returned to their homes satisfied. At Jeansville washery last night a number of men were held up on the Hazelton road while returning from work and were forced to promise not to go to the mines today. They kept their promise. Workmen of the Lehigh and Wilkes barre company at Audenreid were en gaged thia morning in pulling the fires from under the boilers at those strip pings. This Indicates a suspension of work there. Other reports from the southside to day gives instances of individual cases of violence yesterday against miners who did not quit work. No one was seriously hurt. COLLIERIES RESUME WORK. Labor Leaders Jeered and Pelted With Rotten Vegetables. Pottsville, Pa., Sept. 18.—All the Schuylkill region collieries resumed work this morning with the single ex ception of Moreau, operated by Dodson & Co. The Vulcan and Buck Mountain near Mahoney City are short handed, however. The latter was idle yester day owing to the absence of men who were in attendance at a big Polish wed ding. The Lehigh Coal company’s Cen tralia colliery, which shut down at noon yesterday, owing to the scarcity of coal, resumed this morning with a less num ber of men at work than yesterday. It is reported from Nesquehoning that last nignt when Hugh Dempsey of Soranton and James Gallaher, labor leaders, attempted to address a meeting they were jeered and pelted with stale vegetables and had to stop. National President Mitchell and Or ganizer James will speak at Mahoney City, where a large numlier of miners did not report for work today. Only One Mine Working. Wilkesbarre, Pa., Sept. 18. —There is no change in the strike situation in the Wyoming valley this morning. All the collieries that were compelled to suspend operations yesterday are idle today. The United Mine Workers had watchers in the vicinity of every col liery to sec if any miners reported for work. The Lehigh and Wilkesbarre Coal company have a small washery in operation, employing about 12 company hands. The colliery at Mocanaqua ope rated by th® West End Coal company, which was in operation yesterday, started up again this morning with a full force of men. It is the only mine in the district that is working. Situation at Scranton. Scranton, Pa., Sept. 18.—There is no break in the ranks of the United Mine Workers in the Lackawana region and every colliery and breaker tied up yes terday when the great strike of the an« thracite miners was officially begun, was idle today. Two Dead Bodies Found. Quitman, Ga., Sept. 18.—What seems to have been a peculiarly atropous mur der was brought to light wheilbuazards were noticed gathered over a sßut in the woods a short distance outsidev of the city limits.

Philadelphia Sept. 18.—The Phila delphia and R Ming Goal company an nounced today! that after today all grades of coal v«ll be advanced 25 cents BATTLE IS RAGING NEAR KOMATIPOORT All the Available Men Sent to the Frontier, IS AN IMPORTANT POINT If the British Succeed In Holding the Town They Can Easily Cut Off All Supplies From the Boers—Kruger Refuses to Talk. Lorenzo Marquez, Sept. 18.—Fight ing is proceeding at Komatipoort. All the available men have been sent to the frontier. It is expected that Ko mati bridge will be destroyed. There is great uneasiness here. Komatipoort is a town on the frontier of the Transvaal on the railroad leading from Pretoria to Portuguese territory. It is about 50 miles from Lorenzo Mar quez.

London, Sept. 18.—Lord Roberts re ports from Machadodorp, under date of Monday, Sept. 17, that a few minor skirmishes have taken place between the British troops and the Boers.

MR. KRUGER WILL NOT TALK His Spokesman, However, Declares That They Are Not Beaten. London, Sept. 18.—It is stated that a large part of the Rustcnborg commando has surrendered and there are reports that Commandant Botha has given him self up. Lord Roberts is expected to leave Pretoria for England about Oct. 1. The correspondent of The Daily Tele graph in Lorenzo Marquez has been ac corded an interview with Mr. Kruger. The ex-president, however, declined to answer interrogatories in person, and his spokesman was Mr. Bordell, the Transvaal commissioner of police, an ex ile himself. In reply to questions, Mr. Bordell pro ceeded to talk of British cruelties in the field and made more or less wild asser tions of murders of women and Children by Kaffirs, led by British. Time would prove, he added, that we are not nearly beaten. Guarding Lord Salisbury. London, Sept. 18. —There was an un usual gathering of uniformed police and Scotland yard detectives at King's Cross railroad crossing today awaiting the ar rival of Lord Salisbury. It is said that since the premier’s return from Hatfield he has received an auonymous letter which has led to increased police vigi lance. ANTS DIG AN ARTESIAN WELL Stream of Water Seven Feet High Comes From Their Hole. Millen, Ga., Sept. 18. —Near the de pot and within 50 feet of one of the ar tesian wells is a large colony of big red ants, which the proverbial oldest in habitant declares has existed there for 50 years to his certain knowledge and perhaps longer. It is said to be charac teristic of these ants that they will dig and keep on digging until they strike water. The other day the people were aston ished at seeing a stream of artesian wa ter 7 feet high coming out of a new place. Investigation proved it to be from the ant hole. The ants, it seems, miscalculated and dug until they struck one of the artesian wells. The water broke through the passage made by the ants and is pouring out of their former home. It is said the artesian well dug by the ants has greatly diminished the flow from the five other wells of the town. Gaines’ Testimony Corroborated. Frankfort, Ky., Sept. 18.

With the first three I suffered almost unbearable pains from 12 to J 4 hours, and had to be placed under the influence of chloroform. I used three bottles of Mother's Friend before our last child came, which is a strong, fat and healthy boy, doing my housework up to within two hours r ~ of birth, and suf- \ sered but a few hard (kJ V <— 'J pains. This lini- / ? j PUf ment is the grand- / }/ / A i// est remedy ever Vi SI Mother’s y Friend ‘ ® will do for every woman what it did for the Minnesota mother who writes the above let« ter. Not to use it during pregnancy is a mistake to be paid for in pain and suffering. Mother's Friend equips the patient with a strong body and clear intellect, which in turn are imparted to the child. It relaxes the muscles and allows them to expand. It relieves morning sickness and nervousness. It puts all the organs concerned in perfect condition for the final hour, so that the actual labor is short and practically painless. Dan ger of rising or hard breasts is altogether avoided, and recovery is merely a matter of a few days. Druggists sell Mother’s Friend for $1 a bottle. The Bradfield Regulator Co., Atlanta, Ga.

DEALS WITH ALL ISSUES is In Hearty Accord With the Kansas City Platform—Favors Arbitration Between Laborer and Employer and Direct Legislation. Lincoln, Neb., Sept. 18.—Hon. James D. Richardson, Chairman, and Others of the Notification Committee of the Democratic National Convention. “Gentlemen: In accepting the nomi nation tendered by you on behalf of the Democratic party, I beg to assure you of my appreciation of the great honor con ferred upon me by the delegates in con vention assembled, and by the voters who gave instruction to the delegates. ‘‘l am sensible of the responsibilities which rest upon the chief magistrate of so great a nation, and realize the far reaching effect of the questions involved in the present contest. “In my letter of acceptance of 1896 I made the following pledge; “ ‘So deeply am I impressed with the magnitude of the power vested by the constitution in the chief executive of the nation and with the enormous influ ence which he can yield for the benefit or injury of the people, that I wish to enter the office, if elected, free from any personal desire, except the desire to prove worthy of the confidence of my countrymen. Human judgment is falli ble enough when unbiased by selfish considerations, and, in order that I may not be tempted to use the patronage of the office to advance any personal ambi tion, I hereby announce, with all the emphasis which words can express, my fixed determination not, under any cir cumstances, to be a candidate for re election, in case this campaign results in my election.’ “Further reflection and observation constrain me to renew this pledge. Approves the Platform. “The platform adopted at Kansas City commands my cordial and unqualified approval. It courageously meets the is sues now before the country, and states clearly and without ambiguity the party’s position on every question con sidered. Adopted by a convention which assembled on the anniversary of the signing of the declaration of indepen dence, it breathes the spirit of candor, independence and patriotism which char acterizes those who, at Philadelphia in 1776, promulgated the creed of the re public. “Having, in my notification speech, discussed somewhat at length the para mount issue, imperialism, and added some observations on militarism and the Boer war, it is sufficient at this time to review the remaining planks of the platform.” Mr. Bryan then takes up the trust question and deals with it at length. Then follows corporations in politics and the interstate commerce law. Taking up the financial question he deals with it at considerable length, pointing out the inconsistencies of the Republicans on this issue. He indorses the demand for the election of senators by the people aud direct legislation. Taking up the labor question he de fines his position on this great problem in a clear and concise manner. He is opposed to the blacklist, and favors ar bitration between corporations and their employes. He also favors the establish ment of the department of labor and the exclusion of the Chinese. While he favors a liberal policy to ward the old soldiers and sailors, Mr. Bryan suggests that reforms are neces sary in the administration of the pen sion bureau. Following this, Mr. Bryan touches upon the Nicaragua canal, Mon roe doctrine and other issues of import ance, clearly defining the attitude ot the Democratic party on all the great issues of the day. HANNA REFUSED TO TALK. Republican Chairman Declined to Dis cuss Bryan’s Letter. Chicago, Sept. 18.—Neither Senator Hanna, Chairman Olsen nor Vice Chair man Payne would discuss today W. J.
