MITCHELL HAKES A STATEMENT.
Ills Attitude Uelatlre to the Strike anl
the Proposition for Arbitration.
Hazleton. Pa.. Sept. 22. President
Mitchell last night issued an "open let
ter to the public," in which he defines
the attitnde relative to the stake and
the ineais to end it. He says the
strikers "lecognize as their real oppon
ents" these railways and their presi
dent: Pennsylvania. Lehigh Valley
system. Delaware and Hudson, Dela
ware. L-kawauua and Western, Cen
tral of New Jersey. Philadelphia and
lteadiiig, Erie, New YorK. Susquehan
na and Western. Delaware. Susque
hanna and Schulykill, and New York,
Ontario and Western which produce
72 per cent, of the hard coal and haul
the whole product of the anthracite
rcgiou to tidewater.
He then says that "Incredible as It
may appear they I these railways
charge three times as much to carrv
ton of anthracite coal 100 miles as la
charged to carry a bituminous ton of
coal the Mime distance. So exorbitant
are the rats that the legitimate profits
which should be credited to the mining
departments of these railroads are
a's.irbed by freight rates and ns a
consequence their coal properties are
nade to show a very small profit on
Mitchell then states that the men
working in the mines net Ihe Culled
Mine Workers' organization met mid
formulated the demands presented anil
Asked the operators to meet and con
sider th" same with the miners, but the
request was not even acknowledged;
that it would le no use to arbitrate
with Individual operators like the
Msrkles. "for even were the board of
arbitration lo award nil
that the fnen desired, that award could
le lived up to by Markle only so long
as the strike continued elsewhere."
He declares that "individual itera
tors, including Markle" Impose con
ditions on their men more objection
able than the large coritoratlons. He
toiys It would be a fatal mistake to
consent to any partial settlement.
'This is n tight of all for each and
each for all. and to be successful there
must be no break in our line of no
tion." says Mitchell; lie favors arbi
tration, but not piecemeal, in this case;
but prefer the plan of the ojterators
and miners meeting annually and fix
ing the wage scale for a year. He tsays
that is the ideal method.
He proposes that, as the operators
have a deep-seated objection to recog
nlzin the union. "1 and my official col
leagues will not ask to be recognized
or . consulted by the mine owners if
the officers or representatives of these
great railroad companies will do what
they have ninny times said they would
do meet committees of rheir own em
ployes and come to a peaceful agree
ment. Provided, however, that such
conferences Itetween the various com
panies and committees representing
their own employes will meet In sepa

Philadelphia. Sept. 22. Shenandoah's
trouble was precipitated by the closing
of six collieries there yesterday morn

act. it is said, on the part of the Head

quest of Sheriff Toole, who hopes iu

The outlook, however, is dubious, as
the foreigners affected by yesterday's
happenings are in an ugly mood. Else

Washington. Sept. 22. The United
States government has made full and
complete answers to the various im
portant inquiries that have been ad
dressed to it by the powers relative to
the Chinese trouble. Moreover, It has
gone farther, and has made a disclos
ure of all its purposes, and, as a
member of the administration puts it,
has thrown its hand open on the ta

cabinet meeting yesterday. At half
past ."! p. m. Minister Wu called by ap

and was handed a memorandum em
bodying the reionse of the United

Prince Ching that Conger or some oth

With all this it is known that the

will be the withdrawal of all but one
