Oct. 1L The en oasapaient of the Grand Army of the Republic for 1902 came to a close yes terday, although a few social gath erings may assemble today. San Fran oisco was chosen as the next plare of and the election of oAcers the day before was completed. The kindred bodies to the parent or- lization also brought their several conventions to a close, the Sons of Veterans, Woman's Relief corps and other bodies choosing officers for the oasuing year. The Union Veterans' association had a lively day and the final result was a split in the organization. The first row was over a question of eligibility to membership. A reso lution was adopted that let down the bars too much to suit some of the state delegations with a large mem bership in the order. This caused ill feeling. Later the friction In the union de veloped rapidly in consequence of the adoption by a committee which bad been instigating the character and conduct of Commander-in-Chief Dy renforth of a report recommending his sjospension. General Dyrenforth was presiding over the convention when the commit tee endeavored to report. He refused to surrender his office. Turbulent scenes followed until finally a large element of the organization withdrew, those remaining re-electing Feneral Dyrenforth and the seceders taking steps to form a new union. The Grand Army of the Rpublic de cided by a large vote to hold Its en campment In 1S03 at San Francisco, Cal.

The chances of the last named place were destroyed by the decision of the New York delega ttlon to support San Francisco, and When the solid vote of that delegation cast for the Pacific coast city it recognized that Atlantic City's respects were vcy slim. General Shaffer made the speech Bominatlng San Francisco, while De partment Commander Hall of New Jer sey named Atlantic City. The vote was: San Francisco, 753; Atlantic City, 178. The selection of San Fran cisco was then made unanimous. STRIKE MUST GO ON. Now York Conference Ends in Seem ingly Permanent Deadlock. NEW YORK, Oct. 11.

HIS REPLY IS UNFAVORABLE Definitely Refuses Roosevelt's Sug gested Resumption Pending Investi gation Miners, He Says, Have No Confidence in the Operators. WASHINGTON. Oct 11. The fol lowing was made public at the White House: WILKESBARRE. Pa., Oct 8. Hon. Theodore Roosevelt, President of the United States, Washington, D. C: Dear Sir Hon. Carroll D. Wright has no doubt reported to you the delivery of your message to me last Monday and my statement to him that I should take your suggestion under advise ment, although I did not look upon it with favor. Since that time I have consulted with our district p-esldenta, who con cur fully In my views. We desire to assure you again that we feel keenly the responsibility of our position and the gravity of the situation, and it would give us great pleasure to take any action which would bring this coal strike to an end in a manner that would safeguard the interests of our constituents. In proposing that there be an im mediate resumption of coal mining upon the conditions we suggested in the conference at the White House we believed that we had gone more than half way and had met your wishes. It is unnecessary in this letter to refer to the malicious assault made upon us in the response of the coal op erators. We feel confident that you must have been impressed with the fairness of our proposition and the in sincerity of those who maligned us. Having in mind our experience with the coal operators in the past, we have no reason to feel any degree of confi dence in their williingness to do us justice in the future, and inasmuch as they have refused to accept the de cision of a tribunal selected by you and inasmuch as there is no law through which you could enforce the findings of the commission you sug gest, we respectfully decline to advise our people to return to work simply upon the hope that the coal operators might be induced or forced to comply with the recommendations of your commission. As stated above, we believe that we went more than half way in our proposal at Washington, and we do not feel that we should be asked to make further sacrifice. We appreciate your solicitude for the people of our country, 'who are now and will be subjected to great suffer ing inconvenience by a prolongation of the coal strike, and we teel that the onus of this terrible state of affairs should be placed upon the side whicn has refused to refer the trouble to a fair and impartial investigation. I am respectfully. JOHN MITCHELL, President U. M. W. A FRENCH COAL MINERS QUIT. Sixty Thousand Men Reported Out on a Strike. PARIS, Oct 10.

MINERS ANSWER UNANIMOUSLY VOTED TO TINUE THE STRIKE. CON- OPERATORS MUST YIELD POINTS President Roosevelt is Notified of the Decision Reached by the Local Un ionsPresident Mitchell Hurries to New York. WILKESBARRE, Pa.. Oct. 9. Un less President Mitchell's hurried visit to New York bears fruit the end of the mine workers' strike seems a long way off and the prospect of sufficient coal being mined to satisfy the public de mand is extremely poor. Every local union of the miners' organization throughout the hard coal belt held special meetings, either last, night or" today and resolved to remain on strike until the mine owners grant them some concessions. While the reports of the meetings came" pouring into Wilkesbarre, Presi dent Mitchell dictated a letter to the president of the United States, in which he gave his answer to the prop osition that the strikers return to work and trust to have their condition im proved through an investigating com mittee. What the answer of the miners' chief is he refused to divulge, but it Is difficult to conceive that with the replies of the local unions piled around him he could do otherwise than re spectfully decline the president's prop osition. Mr. Mitchell sent his letter to Washington before he had heard from all the locals, and at 3 o'clock In the afternoon, accompanied by the three district presidents, left for New York. His mission there is also a se cret As New York is the headquar- ters of the operators, a rumor immedi ately spread that a settlement was in prospect, but Mr. Mitchell and his col leagues would not say whom they ex pected to meet From early morning until late to night the returns from the local unions came pouring into the union head quarters, and tonight the corps of newspaper correspondents stationed here were invited to examine the re ports. Briefly stated, the resolutions in the reports affirm the confidence in the men; in the integrity, and judgment of their president; praise President Roosevelt for his efforts to end the strike; denounce the presidents of the coal carrying roads for their alleged abuse of the chief executive at the conference in Washington; denounce the employment of the coal and iron police; thank all organizations and citizens throughout the country for the financial assistance given and de nounce Gov. Stone for sending troops here. Nearly all the resolutions contained a sentence to the effect that the men will remain out, though all the troops in the United States are sent here, "until they are granted some conces sions." Additional troops for this region have not -yet arrived, and the general strike situation remains unchanaged. The coal company officials have noth ing to say beyond the fact that they are awaiting developments. There is no increase in the shipment of coal, very little of which is being produced.
