Five Thousand Miners Walk Out and Are Idle. Pittsburg, Kas., May 20. A great strike in the coal mining region oi mis portion oi me state, comprising the counties of Cherokee ami Craw ford, is on. To-day mines are elosed and at least 5,000 miners are idle. Pursuant to notice given to mine ope rators in reply to-lheir notices that on May 19th a new schedule ot wages under the recent screen law would go into effect, miners in .the district J walked out to a man this morning. Several hundred quit work yesterday and to-day every member of the asso ciation of united mine workers of America is idle. Until last night conservative men on both sides honed for an adjustment of the difficulty, but the operators and executive board of mine attorneys have been unable to agree. Operators claim they can not raise the schedule proposed by 4 men without running at loss, while , miners make counter claim that they U cannot accept schedule and make a living. President Walters of the f Tenth district, united mine workers t of America. has been here since the inception of the movement. He said this morning: "Negotia tions are pending which in course of ten hours will determine finally the course, we will take. At present every mine in the district is closed and every shaft is idle. We anticipate the bitterest struggle ever witnessed in Kansas and are prepared to meet it. u tne con ference to be held tins afternoon be tween the conservative operators aud the executive board should not ter minate satisfactorily, the strike will be fought to the end. After that the operators will have no opportunity to arbitrate. President M. L Walters, Secretary James L. Lacy and J. P. Cain, of AVeir City, members of the execu tive board of united mine workers of America and representatives of the Santa Fe, Kansas and Texas and otherinterested companies are here aud will be present at the conference. There seems little chance that a compromise will be reachecL President Walters said this morning that in case no agreement was reached at the conference, every union man in the state will go out in the next ten days and that in SO days all mines in Missouri would be closed. Both states have been thoroughly or ganized by united mine workers of America, the association having six teen thousand men in both states. It will therefore be seen what great im portance attaches to this afternoon's conference. Operator Farrell. who telegraphed for the soldiers, was taken a prisoner. The robbers went into the depot and fired three shots into the telegraph office at Farrell, but did not hit him in darkness. However, he was taken a prisoner, but when the robbers were fired upon by soldiers he and M. C. Ginnie not awav. . r ATTEMPTED HOLD UP.

Countless thou.-ands of sparrows have built their nests in the huge iron rafters nearly .'100 feet above the heads of visitors. Oapt. Bouticld, Chief of the Secret Service of Jackson park, conceited the ilartlins idea of ihveti- lating the birds with chicken cholera and this plan would doubtless have been adopted had not an eminent medical authority warned him that the body of one sparrow destroyed in this manner might spread chicken cholera until all the hens in Illinois would be carried off by the plague. Half the bigwigs of asa fair are trvint to devise means by which the sparrow may be safely exterminated, but the little vandals continue to make them selves disliked.

At the princess arose and liegan to pare for the official call upon pre-iilent and Mrs. Cleveland, which time she was not known official ly to be in the city.

NICELY OWNED. The princess was simply attired. She wore a gown of gray bengaline bordered around the train with gray ostrich feathers. A pink satin girdle completed the toilet. Her bonnet was a small affair of light flowers with pink satin ribbons tied under the chin with a short white net veil over her face. Iii her hand she carried a beautiful parasol of chiffon and lace. VVU. OF CURIOSITY. As soon as the carriages started to ward the White House the crowd broke and ran through the park in that direction to witness the arrival of the distinguished party. A running crowd of well Iresscd women and small boys heralded the approach of the Infanta and her party to the White House. As her carriage came to a standstill under the broad, high portico, hundreds of people gathered there and pressed closer together to catch sight of the princess. The prime assisted the princess to alight and escorted her through the main doorway into the" corridor of a private part of the man sion, and the rest of the partv fol lowed. them. They were over in a minute or two and then others were sum moned and presented in turn by Senor Muruagua, Mrs, Cleveland and the Infanta chatted brikly dur ing a part of the brief visit while at times the conversation was general. At fifteen minutes past eleven the Infanta made her adieux, followed by the others. As she walked across the lobby a woman in the crowd waved her handkerchief and called out in Spanish : "Greeting to the Infanta of Spain." FOUR VICTIMS.

The scene in the blue room where all the official receptions are held was very enticing ami was enhanced by a soft half light that; pervaded the ipartmeut and by a visu of bright colored roses and green plants that opened out at the end of the cariieted corridor. The corridor and blue room had 1 11 . . oeen tasieituiv decorated witn crow ing palms, oleanders and other flower ing plants.
