Wilkesbarre, Pa., July 8. A nationai
defense fund to which all organized
labor and the public in general will be
asked to contribute is the latest propo
sition placed on foot to help !h st 'ik
ing anthracite coal miners if they need
assistance in their struggle for higher
wages and a shorter work day. Harrv
"White, of New York, secretary of the
National Garment Workers and mem
ber of the conciliation committee of the
national civic federation, hell a long
conference with President Mitchell to
day, during which the plan was ap
proved by the miners convention and
Mr. White will at onctr begin prepara
tions to carry out the plan. President
Mitchell wants it understood, however,
that the miners' union will accept no
aid until their own resources are ex
hausted. Mr. White came hre author
ized by several labor organizations.
Mr. White says:
Mr. Mitchell says thac before solicit
ing outside support the miners at work
must set the example themselves by
contributing a considerable portion of
their earnings to sustain their fellow
members In the hard coal field who are
fighting their common battle. This
will be determined upon at the Indian
Efforts will also be made to origi
nate a movement throughout the coun
try that the unions and others may be
prepared to collect funds when the
time is propitious.
"Public men will also understand an
independent movement and receive
subscriptions from those not connected
with labor organizations. This move
ment will be inaugurated in New York
and the labor organizations and sym
phatizers In all the principal cijies of
the country will be called on to ap
point committees to carry on similar

asked to co-operate. The sc.ieine, in
brief, contemplates the concentration
of the energy and resources r:Z organ
ized labor on behalf of the miners
cause, a result which has never before
been achieved. It involves the raising
of a given amount of money each week
with which provisions and other neces
sities of life will be purchased. The
plan has the approval of I-resident
Samuel Go ropers.
"The entire plan is contingent upon
the Indianapolis convention of mine
workers voting down a moticn for a
general strike, as in that event, the
aid which the soft coal miners would
be able to render would be cm off, as it
would be out of the question to try to
maintain the vast number of people
who would be involved
"The operators are counting upon the
means of the miners soon becoming
exhausted and when it is demonstrated
to them that the funds will be forth
coming to prolongate contest Indefiinte
Xj:if need be, the si: :aticn will be
changed materially." ,
Personally, Secretary White disap
proves of the proposed genera! suspen
order of mining, as well as of
sympathetic strikes in general.

throughout the country with several
Lieutenant Hudgins of the naval
bureau of equipment, who was sent
abroad to purchase apparatus for trial,
was expected here some days ago, but
the department is advised that he has
changed his plans and will leave Ger
many on July 11th for New York.
Lieutenant Hudgins brings with him
the appartus of two French and two
German systems of wireless telegraphy
and these will be tried, together with
the Marconi system, at New York, An
napolis, Washington, San Francisco
and at other points to be selected here
after. Rear Admiral Bradford, chief
of the bureau of equipment, has placed
all matters connected with wireless
telegraphy in the navy in charge of
Lieutenant Albort M. Berchere. That
officer contemplates the erection of a
mast at Highland Light in New York
harbor to be used in signalling passing
vessels. It has been contemplated to
use the imported apparatus first in at
tempts to communicate between Wash
ington and Annapolis, but some appre
hension is felt in regard to the physical
nature of the land between those two
points which rruay not yield easily to
these initial experiments.
Nearly all the big warships of our
navy have been fitted with elongated
masts for wireless telegraphy experi
ments, " but the present plan of the
navy department is to try the systems
first on land.

In Army and Navy ManenTres This
Fall, Press Correspondents Will be
On Their Own Resources.
Washington. July 8. In the coming,
joint army and navy maneuvres on the
Atlantic, coast in 'September. Secretary
Moody contemplates throwing the press
correspondents of the country upon
their own resources, meanwhile having
both invaders and defenders regard the
news gatherers as a common "enemy
and endeavoring to mask the move
ments of their forces' as much as pos
sible from the public as in actual warfare-
It is not believed that, under
Secretary Moody's plan, there will be
anything to prevent news organizations
from chartering vessels of their own
and the keeping up with the fleets at
sea the best they may, for this is what
was done in the late Spanish-American
war. In the late war the great press
organizations also had. correspondents
aboard the flagships of the fleets.
Secretary Moody points out that ifts
plan will be valuable in bringing to
light news "leaks" for which officers
who are found responsible will be rep
rimanded, and in proving by practical
test how thoroughly the Iroces can
elude the villgant correspondents and
guard against the escape of secret in
formation. To Report in Chicago.

GEIIERAL MANAGERS TO ARBI
TRATE THE ISSUE
UNIONS NOT RECOGNIZED
Chairman Job Arranges These Meet
ings and Chances for Amicable
Settlement of the Chicago .Strike
Are IlrlRht Result Will be Known
ly 2 OTIock Today Unions Will
Have to Approve Action of the
Committee The Resinning: of the
End Duration of the Strike to he
Decided On. $
Chicago, July S. Through the efforts
of Chairman Job of the state arbitra
tion committee a series of meetings
have been arranged for 10 o'clock to
morrow between the general managers
of each of the roads and a committee of
five men from the same line.
Chairman Job went to each railroad
separately and asked the general mana
ger if he would recelvo a committee of
the strikers. In every instance he was
Informed that the committee would be
received if it was understood that it
came from the employees of the road
and not from freight handlers union.
What ever the agreement may be if any
agreement is reached at the meeting it
will be reported back to the officials of
the union at 2 p. m., for approval, and
no action will be taken until it has the
satisfaction of the officers of the union.
Chairman Job said tonight that he
thought he had inserted the entering
wedge for the settlement of the strike
"The men have all along Insisted," he
said, "that they would not meet the
managers unless they were refused as
members of the union. The managers
have said that they would confer with
the men at any time provided they
came as employees of the road with a
grievance to be adjusted. Of course, I
cannot tell what will come from the
meetings but the difference in the de
mands of the men and the concessions
of the roads are so slight that the re
cognition of the union is practically the
only thing at issue. The men show a
disposition to be less stiff in this re
spect and I hope that we have entered
upon the bginning of tho end."
President Curran of the freight hand
lers issued the following statement to
"We have offered to submit the issue
to arbitration. I had a long conference
tonight with Mr. Job of the state board
of arbitration and we went over the
situation fully. He suggested that a
committee of five freight handlers in
each of the fifty or more freight houses
in Chicago be appointed to call upon
the railway managers by whom they
are employed and present our griev
ances. I readily agreed and the com
mittees will be apppointed at 8 o'clock
tomorrow morning. The reports of
these various commiUees will decide
the duration of the strike. I feel as
sured, however, that the difference will
be amiably adjusted before tomorrow
At all the freight houses pickets en
deavored to persuade new comers from
taking jobs and sought to lure men
away, already at work. At the Wabash
depot but ten men were found at work
and at the Michigan Central and Wis
consin Central where hundreds of men
went out, scarcely any pf them were
found at work. About 50 per cent, of
the wholesalers reported a curtailment
or a most complete stoppage of business
to outside points while the remainder
of business was forward about as usual
The teamsters formally decided this af
ternoon not to aid in the strike.

ENGLAND'S NAVAL, AFFAIRS.
The Question of Subsidies Brongbt
Up Can't Rely on Ships of Other
Powers During; War.
JLondon, July S. Lord Brassey, liberal.
Initiated a discussion on naval affairs in
the house of lords today, during the
course of which he deplored the fact
that Great Britain hai lost the place
she once held with her mercantile ma
rine. The question of subsidies, he
thought, must depend on the action of
the other powers. All the naval powers
of Europe gave liberal subsidies, while
President Roosevelt and former Secre
tary Gage had recommended this policy.
It was contrary to British policy to fos
ter industries by bounties or protection,
but to pay for a reserve of auxiliary
vessels would certainly De to the public
Xiord Selborne. . the first loid of the
admiralty, in the course of a reply, re
ferred to the Atlantic Shipping combi
nation. He said it seemed to him that
the balance was one of disadvantage to
the combination because it necessarily
placed very large powers in the hands
of a few men. The government dis
claimed any sort of jealousy of the in
tention of the Americans here. They
had an American marine of their own
and they held a perfect right to a full
share of the At'antic trade. It was to
British interest they should have it. It
would not be a British monopoly. On
the other hand Great Britain could not
afford to see herself squeezed out of the
Atlantic trade. The attituae of the
government therefore was not one of
hostility but of anxiety ,and not until
they had formed a final opinion of the
whole question would they wisely or
fairly enter into agreements with one
party or the other.
It. would never do to rely in time of
war on merchant ships cf other nations
for the purposes of British carrying
trade. Great Britain had fallen behind
lnr regard to vessels of high speed be
cause she had not given heavy subsi
dies like other nations. JThe expense of
bo larere a subsidy policy was so Insid
lous that in his opinion the subsidizing
of commercial corporations should and
must be confined to a 'imited number
and for a complete and definite pur
pose. While merchant cruisers had
their proper place in time of war they
could never be substituted tor navai
cruisers and neither would the posses
sion of merchant cruisers even diminish
the shipbuilding vote for the navy.
