Some of the local coal operators, after being shown a copy of the statement Issued by President Mitchell yesterday, say it will probably be the last he will give to the public before the ending of the strike. They say that his appeal Is made up of generalities. Atstrike head quarters Mitchell's latest deliverance is termed a "ten strike," and it is stated that the facts and figures he presents are irrefutable. The military authorities. Sheriff Jacobs and some of the superintendents of the coal com panies in this vicinity held u meeting in the office of one -of the coal com panies Saturday evening and talked over a plan by which the troops can be moved promptly to scenes of dis turbance.

It is reported again that attempts will be made today to resume work at several collieries in this region which have been idle since the strike began, but the report cannot be verified. At strike headquarters it was claimed that there will be no change in the situa tion this week, which is the twenty first of the strike; that the strikers are as firm as ever, and that there will be no desertions from the ranks to make It possible for the coal companies to start up any new colieries.

JOHN MITCHELL'S STATEMENT He Replies to Baer's Allegation Relatire to the Coal Strike. Philadelphia. Sept. 29. John Mitch ell, president of the United Mine Workers, has written a statement in reply to recent utterances of Baer, Prwideut of the Beading railway. Mitchell says in part: "Mr. Baer states that 'the wages paid in the anthracite coal regions are, compared with the wages paid in like employment, fair and just.' By like employment' Mr. Baer must refer to bituminous . coal mining. I am willing and prexiarcd to demonstrate that wages In the bitumin- ous coal fields are from 20 to 40 per cent, higher than those paid for simi- lar classes of work in the anthracite fields." He then present figures to prove that assertion, and adds that the danger in anthracite mines to lifo is greater than In bituminous. Mitchell says: "There are other statements of Mr. Baer which are eouallv incorrect: among these is his assertion that the miners only worked from 'four to Blx hours per day, and his further assertion 'that the lowest scale of wages was 85 cents for boy slate pickers.' If Mr. Baer desires I shall gladly furnish him with the names and addresses of thousands of slate pickers, each of whom received much less than So cents per day, and I shall be willing to have the returns verified by the companies pay rolls. "Th next misstatement of Mr. Baer to which I shall give notice Is that which claims that 'for some mysteri 8 reason' the miners restricted the output of the mines. Mr. Baer claims that in tnis manner tne prouuet or the collieries has been reduced about 12 per cent, and that in the case of the Reading company it amounted to more than 1,000,000 tons ' " Mitchell then quotes figures from of. ficial reports and The Engineering and Mining Journal to show that this statement Is wide of the truth, and that even the per capita output was Increased, not diminished. He also denies that the United Mine Workers seeks to interfere with the management of the coal properties, that the organization Is lawless, and that the companies cannot pay the In- crease demanded. He declares that fhe hired guards are lawless, how ever, and that their acts are charged to the minors. He declares the state ment that the 40 per cent, of the coal mined being less in the market than the case of mining misleading, be cause it leaves out of account the coal that is sold, for which the miners re- celve no pay, Ifcs. closes with the declaration that LEG STILL SORE: BONE AFFECTED President Roosevelt Again Submits to Surgery Seems Much Better.

Her 9-year-old sister was probably fa- tally scalded in a heroic attempt at rescue, and a man, wnose name is not known, was also fearfully burned, but will recover. The children were playing upon some ltoards which covered a well used to condense steam from a nearby mill. The boards gave way and precipitated Alice Into the pit, in which there was about a foot of boiling water. Her sis ter stood over the well and readied down through the steam time and again lu har efforts at rescue. the fight Is not so nna ror tne present generation of miners as it is for the little children "prematurely doomed to the whirl of the mill and the noise and blackness of the breaker" to win a life for the child and secure for it a place In the world In keeping with advancing civjlization." BASED ON CHAPLAIN'S THEORY ReceiTer Is Asked by Boston Citizens for the Anthracite Properties.' Boston, Sept. 29. A committee of citizens, headed by the publisher of a Boston newspaper, Saturday sought re lief in the courts from the present coal shortage and high prices by ask Ing for a receiver for the coal com panies and coal-carrying roads. A bill inequity was filed in the supreme i court against the corporations involved in the anthracite strike. The petition ers ask that a receiver be appoint ed for the benefit of all concerned. upon such terms and in such manner, and with such agents and servants. and with such rates of wages and oth- er conditions of employment, and at such prices for goods produced and sold, ns the court shall from time to time adjudge proper. The bill is based upon the legal the ory of the coal situation given by II. W. Chaplin, a lawyer. Chaplin says In support of his position: "Since the public have a right in the mines- right to have coal forthwith mined for Immediate consumption and have a right to have that coal immediately transported out of the mine regions hv tho ronl-cnrrvlnn- rni.rta n court of equity if no other solution of the difficulty is open, has authority to, and upon the application of a representa tive projiortion of the people undoubt edly would, appoint a receiver or re ceivers to take into his or their hands the whole business now in the hands of the anthracite coal combine, and to run it in their Dlace." tVant the President to End It.

The French press has been following closely the "armed intervention" of the United in affairs on the isthmus and at Panama, and the article published in La Prensa, of Buenos Ayres, Argentina, Sept. 2U, in which attention was called to the al leged tendency of the United States toward imperialism as illustrated by the landing of United States marines on the isthmus, and against which ae tion the paper protests energetically, has evoked comment lu several news- papers.

It is the especial duty of nations of the same blood as theirs, says La Liberte such as France, Italy and Spain to fetretch out a helping hand. Other Editor Indorses ITs. L.e Journal Des Debats, on the oth- er hand, indorses the iiicy of the United States toward the republics of South America. This paper first re- marks that the United States govern ment does not need to repeat the Mon roe doctrine to Europe. The situation itself suffices to recall to the latter that the American continents cannot longer be a Held of European political action. The paper then says that the protest against the landing of United States marines on the isthmus made by General Salazar, commander of the Colombian forces on the isthmus. Is futile, and therefore of only mediocre interest. "America," fays The Jour nal Des Debats, "is scrupulously fulfill lng the duty imposed uion it by the treaty of 1SIU, and it will fulfill this duty more and more in the future as the canal is completed.
