YONETSi .Big Row Between Soldiers And Strikers at Lansford To-Day. CAPTAIN' HEIM WAS INJURED. Troops Had Work To Do Every Minute Sinc Daybreak The Captain Was Grasped by the Legs and Pulled From a Car Privates Who Followed HUB J Tamaqua, Pa, Aug 25. In an en counter between troops 'and strikers at Lansford this morning Captain W. H. Heim of Co K, Twelfth regiment, was slightly injured, i A half dozen strikers were bayoneted by tfie sol diers as a result of the fracas. Major Gearhart, in command of the troops here, states that he will appeal .to the military law to put the town of Lans ford under martial law; From daybreak the troops were ac tive In quelling disturbances and protecting- nonTunion men .on their way to work. As has been the case for the last few days, the troops were jeered wherever they went. The of ficers repeatedly admonished ; the crowds not to insult or molest the sol diers, .but their words had but little effect. .. At 5 o'clock Companies K and E were placed in two trolley cars. Pne of the cars was run In front of the car which carried the non-union men to work and the other in the rear. While passing through Coaldale and Lans ford the soldiers were hooted, "but as no stop was made the strikers did not make any violent demonstration. At Summit Hill about double the usual number of men availed themselves of the protection of the soldiers and went "vuii.. j.ne picKets or the strikers made efforts to stop them, but the warnings of the soldiers held fhem at bay. When the workmen had been loaded on the car the return trip through the valley commenced. The word .that more men than usual were reporting for work spread tSrough the lower part of the valley like wildfire and in a short time the streets were al most blocked with people. When-the corner of Center and East Bertsch streets was reached the cars stopped to allow several non-union men to get off. As -the men stepped to the ground the mob made a rush for them. A half dozen soldiers sprang off the car and with levelled guns forced the K""x"ij uaa. uu maue a passage for tie non-union men. When the soldiers returned after es corting their charges to a place of safety the mob commenced to close in around the' cars.' The strikers were in an ugly mood and when 6rdered to disperse merely yelled louder and pressed closer. As Captain Helm of M K was about to Jump from the car - Yi ck tut a a - caiTn -ma j j . -v. 0dx.cu muuuu tne legs and thrown to the ground.

Coal Is Being Shipped Dally xne Pennsylvania Railroad Had 60,000 Tons in Storage Which Has All Been Sold The Reading Co Has Not Sold Any Coal Since the Strike Was In augurated. : ' -PViiiarioiTVhia Ancr ft While mine OP erators and officials of the United Mine Workers say that the strike situation in the . anthracite field remains un- nhancror it- ia ovirtonf that there Is greater activity at present in the coal region man at any time since tne in auguration of the strike. "Coal is dailv beinff shimmed from various-sec tions of the field, and several washer ies are known to be in operation. . , It does not v follow, however,; that any of the comnanies are cutting coal. When the strike was declared a large quantity of cut coal was left beneath the surface, ready for the breaker. Ac cording to miners' union officials it is this coal that is now being brought" to the surface by the special deputies, foremen and others emnloved about the , collieries during the progress of tne strike, it Is also said thatthe big coal carrying companies are now draw ing on their reserve sunnlv to satisfy the more pressing demands. ' u-ne Pennsylvania railroad, through Its selling agents, has been selling and shipping small quantities of ;.coal al most daily since the strike began, se curing its supplies from some 60,000 tons in storage. This supply has been exhausted, however, and what littl coal the company is now sending out comes irom the mines of the Susque hanna Coal; Co at Nanticoke, where small quantities are being brought to the surface and sent to market daily. The Reading company, according to its sales asrents. has not sold an v onni since the strike was inaugurated, ex cept in a-1 lew exceptional -eases. On the other - hand, reports from' the Schuylkill region, where the Readinsr company's mines are, say that the ship ments or anthracite from that section are daily increasing. The washeries established along: the Schuvlkill river in northern Berks and lower Schuylkill counties are in operation night and day, and as high as 100 cars are ship ped in a day. : What is considered a significant move on the part of the operators is the. re turn of many mules from pasture to the mines. ' . . A Rope i or Mark Twain. . The Missouri papers are telling this story of, Mark Twain's recent visit to the state:, A big crowd gathered at a railway station to meet him. A little boy knew that, somebody was coming, ' but ; he did not know Mark Twain from Bossie Francis. This kid perched himself on top of a freight car, where he could see what hap pened. The train rolled in, and as Mark stepped off the people became excitgd and, shouted: - "Here he isl Here he" is!" Tlie kid on the box car thought a great criminal had been caught, and shouted: "Git a rope! Git a rope." .Dr. Clemens laughed till the tears ran out of his eyes. N. Y. Tribune. . . 'V; ''-,vr, ' .

Love and Bamboo In Java. - The young shoots of the bamboo are covered with a number of very fine hairs that are seen, under the micro scope, to be hollow and spiked like bayonets. These hairs are commonly called bamboo poison by the white men resident inx Java; for the reason that murder is frequently committed through their agency. When a Javan ese woman takes a fancy to a Euro pean she will either have him or poi son him if she gets the chance. She seeks any and every opportunity of mixing these infinitesimal hairs among his food, and they serve the purpose of irritating the whole length of the alimentary canal and setting up malignant dysentery. It may take a long time and many doses of this so called poison to effect the purpose, but the native woman does not tire and death will surely result. The male na tive will also try this method of , re venge for an affront. -Japan Mail. : IndmtrloBi Pe-dagrogrnei..

Col Henry Watterson Has Been , Ap pealed to By the Secretary of the Law and Order League Thrasher Tells How Prize Fighting Has Been Driven from New York and Con necticut, and Asks If Watterson Would Like to See Louisville Made the Dumping Ground, . New Haven, Aug 29. An open let ter in regard to the proposed contest at Louisville, Ky, between Terry Mc Govern and "Young" Corbett has been addressed to Col Henry Watterson of Louisville by S,. P. Thrasher of this city, secretary of thg Law and Order league of Connecticut.' , In the letter Mr Thraslul says: "This Is f.n age when the moral in terests of the whole land are more or. less bound together and when of times one part of the country pulsates to the sentiment or another. This and your well known reputation constitute my only apology for addressing you openly on the subject of the prize fight, alias boxing match,, arranged to take place In Louisville on the evening of Sep tember 22.' . ' After speaking of the effect of the repeal of the Horton "law in New York state, in turning the, attention of place "to pull off fights," Mr Thrasher in his letter speaks of the agitation which followed the match between McGovern and Corbett at Hartford on last Thanksgiving 1 day. ; Both in Hartford, he says, and in New Haven, where another fight was held, the ne wspapers took an active part in the agitation with, the result that further licenses were refused. The letter con tinues by declaring that a concerted effort was made by those who were interested in the second contest be tween McGovern and : r' Young" Cor bett o call the affair a "boxing match' "a sparring exhibition f of "points." At the same time, among themselves and , in the New York papers, the char acter of the approaching contest was clearly announced as battle, gladiato rial eomtvat iu which, the hardest blows, best directed to the jaw, solar plexus or heart were to win. . , Mr Thrasher then quotes from a publish ed description by Terry McGovern of the terrible punishment administered by McGovern to 'Dave Sullivan in their last contest. ' . After reciting the steps by ,; which the Intended contest be tween McGovern and Corbett at New London was prevented, the letter con-' ciuaes: , ; -.-';-:.." "Louisville should not be regarded as the dumping ground for ; pugilists when shut out from1 New York, St ajuuis, irmiaueipuia, isew i-onaon or elsewhere; it would seem to be feas ible for some kind of an anti-prize fight movement to be inaugurated in , your cKyl You could un.doutbtedly - exer cise a mighty Influence toward turning or strengthening, public sentiment, if not for the re-vocation af the license of September 22, at least for the refusal of future licenses of the same sort. ' "It may be that I am presuming too much. I must acknowledge that I do not know what the sentiment of your city is, neither do I know that text of your statute bearing upon this sub ject, but I think I know from your writings that you are opposed to hy pocrisy of this kind. The calling of a brutal prize fight a "boxing match" does not change" the character. If'' the people of Louisville want a prize fight, they; should understand that they are to be treated to . the real article on "September 22. As to this phase of the case, I am sure we are in accord." ' MALLEABLE IRON MEN- Will Soon Form Combination With a ' " Capital of $25,000,000. Sharon, Pa, Aug 29.

MILITARY RIDE CONDEMNED. English Press Declares It Was Useless Cruelty to Horses. London, Aug 29. The military ride from Brussels to Ostend, In whicn three horses Wee ridden to death and several others until they fell from ex haustion, has evoked strong condem nation from the; English press. The cruelty, practised i upon fle animals was not, it is declared, balanced by any benefit that was' or could possibly be attained. A similar view is ex pressed , In Brussels. The French lieutenant, Madamet, who won the race, attributes his success to the care ful training of his animal for the spe-, cial. purpose of the race: During the ride he occasionally , dismounted and walked for about rt a hundred yards, washing the horse from time to time, but gave hiih nonfood or drink. It la now announced that Lieutenant Mada- met's horse did not . die. The animal is quite well, and the lieutenant In tends to ride it in Saturday's cross country run. Lieutenant Madamet denied the charges that he used his horse cruelly. It Is asserted that the competition- showed, first, that the winning horses were.' those- which had been well trained; second, that horses will run without slackening their speed until tney reach a point within a few yards of where; they! drop; from sheer'" exhaustion ; : third, that ' the maximum of what a horse can develop at full speed is sixty-five miles a day. It Is noteworthy that Emperor William for bade any officer of the German armv taking part In the competition. it is stated that he regarded it as a useless experiment. WAITING FOR LABOR DAY. United Mine Workers' Oflacers Think It Will Benefit Them. Indianapolis, Ind, Aug 29. The offi cers of the United ' Mine Workers be lieve Labor day will be of great benefit to them. ; They have received word that at many places, especially in the mining region, the , pending mining strikes will be made very prominent and collections are to be taken to as sist the miners. They expect that large " sums : of money will be forth coming to them from these collections. TThe national officers of the organi zation have not taken any steps to push their affairs on the various Labor day committees In charge of the cele brations over the country, as they do not wish to monopolize the exercises. However, they say, owing to the prominence of the anthracite strike by which more than 350,000 people are af fected, it will be impossible to dwell at any length on affairs of labor with out speaking of the strike. As It has been endorsed by the American Feder ation of Labor and , by many of the leading labor unions, individually the cause of the miners must of necessity be helped, the officers think. Even at places where no collections are to be taken for the miners the officers of the organization believe the recital of their grivanees will result in stirring up con tributions.
