prominent in coal circles said yester
day: "The arbitration proposition now

interests are appended thereto. It is
only fair to say that Mr. Morgan took
an active part in the proceedings, and
his suggestions were most valuable.
The operators realized that matters
had reached the stage where some

not freeze the American public.

STORY OF THE PIPS ITM
Once the Case Was Arbitrated with Sir
Edward Thorntou as Umpire.
The case is one connected with the
earliest history of the North American
continent after Euronea,u iyc.cjipation.
In lt?7 a charitable fund was estab
lished for the supiort of Uoman Cath
olic missions in the Californlas. The
gifts were made iu trust to the Society
of Jesuits. The subsequent history of
the fund is thus described: In 17C7 the
Spanish crown made an order expell
ing the Jesuits from Mexico and Cali
fornia and took over the property of
the order and administered the fund
through a commission appointed for
that "purpose. When Mexico achieved
Independence she succeeded to the
trust and continued to apply the pro
ceeds of the fund to the maintenance
of the missions.
Wlieu upper California was ceded to
the United States Mexico ceased to pay
the Uoman Catholic church there a
portion of the fund and the United
States made a claim for the arrears,
which claim was arbitrated. Sir Kd
ward Thornton being the umpire and
deciding that Mexico must pay in ar
rears $;04,7oO. This was paid, and
then 'Mexh oquit paying again, alleging
that Sir Kdward Thornton exceeded
his powers, when Minister Clayton iu
1SD7 pressed for payment.
As a result of the Pan-American
conference last winter and its recom
mendations on the subject of disputes
between. American republics, an agree
ment was reached to refer the case to
he international tribunal, the supreme
court of the world. The conclusion of
the matter is that Mexico will pay the
United States about $700,000. the judg
ment specifying Mexican moiv-y, which
is of silver standard.
Sehnor Padro. In behalf of Mexico,
declared he was sure that so soon as
his government learned of the court's
award it would accept It. He must,
however reserve for his government
the right to avail Itself of the provis
ions of the protocol.

Education Bill Discussed by Pre
mier Balfour at a Unionist
HE CHARGES MISREPRESENTATION"
Declares the Bill Falsely Interpreted
by Those Who Should Know
and Do Better.
Manchester, Oct. 13. A notable ad
dition to the controversy over the gov
ernment's education bill was made last
night by Premier Balfour, in an ad
dress he delivered before a mass meet
ing held in connection with the an
nual conference of the National Un
ion Conservative Constitutional asso
ciation. The premier declared that the
agitation against and the opposition to
the bill were due to misunderstand
ings caused by false statements of its
provisions and intentions. Balfour said
the voice of t lit- caltiniinator had been
too long uninterrupted, but that the
rountry would no longer be hood
winked by the travesties of truth
which had been drunk ih by those
from whom better things were to be
Why the Disturbance Was Created.
The government had chosen to dis
turb educational peace because the ex
isting system of education was chaotic,
ineffectual and behind the age, making
tireat Britain the laughing stock of
other nations, and it was bound, the
premier said, to provide secondary pub
lic education and to co-ordinate all the
brandies of public- education under the
control of the boroughs and count j
councils. If in doing this the govern
ment had given a tonic to the Liberal
party Balfour did not begrudge it.
Continuing the premier asserted that
a majority of the people believed re
ligion should be taught in the schools,
but that It did not agree as to what
religion, and that the only alternative
was a system permitting denomina
tional teaching in schools wholly sup
Irted by rates, as well as promoting
it in those schools which were not
wholly so supported. He said that the
claim that representation did not fol
low taxation was erroneous, since the
real control of the schools was vest
ed, not in the church authorities, but
in the municipal councils and their con
stituents. Threats of Non-Conformtts.
The threats of the non-conformists
to refuse to pay the rntes. the premier
said, were unworthy the citizens of a
free country. Civilized government
was Impossible if dissatisfied citizens
refused to obey the laws. The i,ii-con-formists.
the premier declared, should
hail the bill with pleasure, for it was
an effort to give the people unlimited
control of education, and their objec
tions to it were, in reality, political,
their object being to turn out the Con
servative government. If the govern
ment was lefeatHl in this measure
there would be no hope of educational
reform, as the asritators did not de

had sent out circulars
of Lord ltosebery's Lileral League
with the view, so it was alleged, of
turning the Federation into an instru
ment of the former premier.
In spite of resolutions to the con
trary Lady Helen persisted in staying
in the chair while the discussion of
her conduct was going on. She hotly
declared the Federation showed the
most indecent haste in desiring to get
rid of her, adding: I am in the chair
and in the chair I will remain." One
of her supporters, the wife of a mem
ber of parliament, made personal
charges against their opponents, and in
spite of hisss and prolonged inter
ruption Iad.v Helen persisted that she
be allowed to continue.
The wife ,f another member of par
liament declared that the executive
committee had deliberately tampered
with Lady Helen's circular by Issuing
it with underlined sentem-es which
were not marked by the president. This
statement w-as greeti-d by a chorus of
hisses from the Scotchwomen assent

shouted, and wild confusion prevailed
while the tellers for the vote on the
president's resignation were appointed.
Iidy Helen, referring to one of the
ladies chosen, said "she can surely be
trusted." whereupon all the other tell
ers, believing their honor to be im
pugned, refused to act. Ultimately a
ballot vote was taken, and after the
uproar had died down it was found
that Lndy Helen's resignation had been
