"Wa are aware that some disappoint ment and dissatisfaction ba been caused by tbe failure of tho operator! in district 1 and 7 to separate the re duction in the price of powder from tbe advance in wages, but after careful inquiry we are satisfied that eacb mine employe will actually receive an ad vance of 10 percent on the wage form erly paid. In tbe Schuylkill and Le igh region the largest eompaniet havt agreed that the eliding scale should be suspended and that wages should remain stationary at 10 per oent until April 1, 1881, the removing one oi the iniquities of which you bave com plained for many years. "While it ia true that yon have not aecured re I res a for all your wrong; while it is true that the increase In ?our earnings will not fully compensate ou for tbe arduous labor yon are com pelled to perform, you bave established a perfect organization, which, if main tained and conducted on buslneas prin ciples, will enable yon to regulat many of yonr local grievance and make your employment less hazardous and more profitable than before the strike began "Tbe companies agree in their notice to take up with their mine employe all grievance complained ot. We would, therefore, advise that when work is resumed committees be select ed by tbe mine employes and that they Wait upon the superintendents of the companies and present their griev ance in an orderly, business-like man ner, and ask that tbey be corrected. "Your attention 1 respectfully called to the fact that the law of the state of Pennsylvania provide tbat miner should be paid semi-monthly upon demand. -We should, therefore, advise that each mine employe serve notice on tbe companies that be expect to be paid bis wages twice each mouth, aa provided bv law. "Tbe practical benefit to the miner whioh accrue from thorough organisa tion bave been so clearly demonstrated during this strike that it should ba needless for na to urge upon you the necessity of maintaining your union in' tact. We tiust, however, that tho who are now member of tbe union will be unceasing in their effort to in duce all mineworkers to ally them selves with the United Mineworkers of America at once, a it will be impossi ble for you to secure your wages in tb future or even maintain the present rate of wage unleea you are prepared to offer a united resistance if any at tempt is made to reduce your earnings upon the expiration of the present offer.'.

'Dawson today," be says, "presents a marked contrast to the Dawson oi 1898. Then no one, except possibly the judge on ' tbe bench, wore a white shirt. The town wa thronged witb miner, pack on back, prospecting for gold. The streets were veritable mud boles. Now people dress much ai they do in tbe cities of tbe United States. A man with a puck on bis back is an unusual sight, and one can walk the town over witb polished shoe and not bave thom soiled."

Valuable placer claims are reported to bave lieen located in tbe Stewart river mining district, about 100 miles from Dawson, and a stampede baa fol lowed to tbe scebe of tbe find.

Berlin, Oct. 29. A great sensation las been caused oy the allegations hat Count von Posadowsky-Wtbner, ecretary of sta te for the interior, had ieen bribed w ith 12,000 marks for bis vok in connection with the penal ervitude bill of 1898. The allegation ia contained in a letter wbicb ia going the rounds of the German press. The writer asserts that Herr Krtipp sub icribed 6,000 marks to the fund con stituting the alleged bribe. Tho Na tional Zeitungb says it expects that Count von Posadowsky-Wehner will resign, and nearly ali tbe papers con demn him severely. A special addition of the Berliner Correspondent, which was issued by tbe minister of the interior this alter noon, publishes a statement admitting that Director von Wnedtke, of the im perial department of the interior, in duced Secretary Bueck, of the Central Association of Manufacturers, to de vote 12,000 marks for printing reicb stag material and other documents tending to show arguments in favor of passing tbe anti-strike bill. This printed material was sent to tbe pro vincial press for reproduction. The official statement amounts to a virtual corroboration of the press charges brought against the ministry of the in terior, of which Count von Posadowsky- Webner ia tbe bead.
