lying him that nt a meeting of the an-
thraclto coal rends men In Now York
It hnd been decided not to grant an
interview to Mr. Mitchell nnd his as-
noclatoB , which had been suggested
Jor Friday noxt. The announcement ,
coming as It did after nn all dny'a
conference In this city between Mr.
MncVengh nnd Mr. Mitchell and his
associates , attended pnrt of the time
by Cnrroll D. Wright , In an endeavor
to adjust some details of the proposed
agreement between the operators nnd
the minors , completely surprised
every one hero. From a rcllnblo
pourco It Is Icnrncd that the proposi
tion that the operators meet Mr.
Mitchell on Friday next was mndo at
the Instn/ico of Mr. MacVoagh , who
' "was no less eurprlscd than Mr. Mitch
ell himself nt the turn nffalra took.
From statements made by Mr. Harrow
early In the dny , the Impression hnd
spread thnt a complete agreement
would bo effected nt the conference ,
lwt when the meeting broke up Mr.

the corridor outside his room In Will-
aril's hotel n statement which made it

Mitchell Makea Statement.
Philadelphia , Nov. 26. President
Mitchell of the United Mlno Workers
of America , accompanied by his coun-
eel , C. H. Dnrrow nnd II. D. Lloyd , arrived -
rived hero from Washington , Mr.
Mltcholl was questioned concerning
the status of the settlement of the
rnlno workers' strike. Ho said :
"Counsel for the operators nnd some
of the operators hnd laid before the
presidents of the railroad companies n
tentative proposlLjn which had been
drafted Jointly by the representatives
of the railroad companies nnd counsel
tor the miners. The railroad compa
nies wired the strike commission that
the jeneral terms of the proposition
word" satisfactory , some of the minor
details to bo adjusted later. This mes
sage suggested thnt the commission
adjourn until Dec. 3 , In order thnt
these 'minor details' might bo ad-
Justed. "
Mr. Darrow hero Interrupted by
saying : "Tho initiative was taken by
the operators. "
Mr. Lloyd said : "When the com
mission adjourned it was understood
that a satisfactory adjustment of the
differences would be made. The com
missioners were so certain of this thnt
a subcommittee , consisting of Messrs.
Clark , Watkins and Parker , was ap
pointed to adjust the minor details.
"Attorney MacVeagh , counsel for
Iho Pennsylvania Coal company , re
quested Mr. Mitchell and his counsel
to meet him in Washington yesterday
for the purpose of working out the details -
tails of the strike settlement. While
wo were In conference with Mr. Mac-
Veagh a messngo was received from
the coal rend presidents announcing
that the first proposition was not satIsfactory -
Isfactory nnd thnt the coal companies
would r refer a continuance of the
bearings before the arbitration com-
mlttee. "
Mr. Mitchell declined to express an
opinion regarding the attitude of the
coal road presidents. Mr. Darrow ,
however , said : "They have gone
equarely back on their word. "
Break Off Negotiations.
New York , Nov. 26. A serious
Ditch occurred yesterday In the plans
for a settlement of the coal contro
versy for a conference between the
operators and the union , and it Is now
-almost certain that the adjustment
will be again referred to the Gray
commission. At a meeting between
the presidents of the coal roads and
a large number of independent oper
ators , a strong protest was entered by
the latter against treating directly
with the miners. An invitation to
meet Mr. Mitchell at Washington on
Friday was declined peremptorily and
It was agreed that in the Judgment
of the operators It was best for the
present to go on with the hearing before -
fore the commission.
Independents Win Their Point.
Scranton , Pa. , Nov. 2C. The inde
pendent operators' committee on their
return from New York were all glad
ness and smiles.
" \Ve have won our point , " said Dr.
J. N. Rice of the Riverside Coal com
pany. "We are ready to show to the
public that we are paying all the
wages our business warrants , and
that an agreement with John Mitch
ell's organiratlon is undesirable , be
cause of its un-American ideas. The
big companies have come to our way
cf thinking and a 'settlement out of
court' la no longer a possibility. "
As viewed from this point the hearings - I
ings will bo proceeded with on ! i

sentment It Recedes From Its Posi
tion and Calls Strike Off Veterans
Ready to Take Up Arms.
Havana , Nov.20.tThe Central La
bor union decided to call off the strike
nnd committees were appointed to In
form the various unions of this de
cision. Much of the credit for the set
tlement of the strike Is duo to General
Gome/ , who headed tbo committee
which consulted with officials of the
Havana Commercial company , against
whom the strike wns first directed.

Nearly Three Sliver Dollars Now
Needed to Buy One of Gold.
Mexico City , Nov. 26. The premium
on New York exchange continues to
ndvance and yesterdny It was 185 ;
that is $2.85 Mexican silver Is required
to buy one American gold dollar. The
largo farmers in the interior and
planters throughout the country say
they do not care If the dollar falls to
30 cents , as only the city merchants !
; j
and Importers want gold. They urge
that the depreciated silver keeps the
dollars in the country and makes busl
ness good. Importers take another !
view and are generally refusing to
make prices on machinery , supplies ,
etc. , except in gold. Bankers realize
that payments coming due will be 1
made in dollars worth considerably
less than when the money was loaned.
The government has the matter under
advisement and advices regarding the
adoption of a gold standard from Europe -
rope and the United States are being
constantly received. The country Is
undeniably prosperous and there is a
natural hesitation in taking radical
measures which might give business
a set back.
Dawson Mine Flooded.
Vancouver , B. C. , Nov. 26. A spe
cial from Dawson says an unexpected
flow of water from a mine shaft on
Eldorado creek has done much dam-
ago. Miners have been engaged In

Several layers of gold bearing sands
exist , alternating with loose rock and
muck , similar to surface diggings.
The theory is that after these have
all been passed through genuine bedrock -
rock will be struck and gold found in
considerable quantities. Yesterday at
noon the men were down 210 feet.
After their return to the shaft after
dinner they found water rising In
the shaft , which filled In six hours.
The water soon overflowed and is run-
nlng ' through Bonanza camp , damag-
ing ' mining machinery and small build-
Ings. A big stream is now flowing
through the little town.
