the exception of the one at Mocana

Washery is Idle.
Scranton, Pa, Sept. 25. The strike
situation in the Lackawanna region
is practically unchanged, excepting
that the Bellevue washery, which op
erated nearly all of last week, is idle.
This is a Deleware, Lackawanna fe
Western operation, and its shutting
down is said to be due to a repre
sentation to the foremen, who were
acting as laborers there, that if they
did not quit not one of them could
feel assured of retaining his fore
manship when the strike was set
tled. THS SHAMOKIN COLLIERIES.

The failure of the men to go to

the population of the United States
would now be 82.767.832. As a matter
of fact it is unofficially estimated,
from census returns already in hand,
at 76.00,000. In IH'JO the 100 chief cities

bury's Reply la Identical with
that of the lalted States.
Washington, Sept. 26. The direc
tion to Minister Conger to put him
self in relation with Li Hung Chan;j
and Prince Ching has not yet gone
forward. The message practically has
been framed, but its form is subject
to the approval of the president. In
view cf the talk in European capitals
of counter propositions to that made
by the United States relative to these
preliminaries, it begins to appear
that the oflieials here were correct in
their first estimate of the time that !
be required to mark the taking of the
next step in the Chinese matter.
Called at the State Department.
Baroa Sternberg, the German
charge, was an early caller at the
state department, but he had nothing
of interest to communicate upon the
subject which is now foremost in the
depart ment. Touching the latest re
port that Germany has it in mind to
advocate the creation of an inter
national court for the trial of the
Chinese officials who are accused of
responsibility for the Pekin out-,
rages, it is pointed out here that so
far from this being an alternative
proposition to the original German
plan, it might be regarded rather as a
development of that proposition,
meeting one of the charges of vague
ness lodged in some quarters against
Hot Advised as to Rassla's Answer.
The state department has not been
advised officially of the character of
the Russian answer to the German
proposition. It is gathered from the
Berlin dispatches that the Russian
note does not except to the foreign
ministers in Pekin indicating just
who were responsible parties. But it
is pointed out, also,-that the United
States note did not except specifically
to such an indication. Our objection
was to the broad proposition to re
quire the delivery of the culprits
over to the allies in advance of the
beginning of negotiations; not to the
plan to have the minister indicate
