UNCOVERS BIG FORGERIES Swindler Wiirka n Graft by Purport lntt to Dp Collectlitir Cnm inllii Funds. NKW YORK, Oct. 25. Operating under the cloak of agents of the republican cam palgn committee, rogues have succeeded In obtaining probably $100,000 on forged checks In this city and through the state. Their mode of operation Is shown In tho enso of II. M. Cook, who Is under arres on the charge of passing bogus checks bearing the name of M. L. Muhlemann, treasurer ot the republican national cam paign committee. Cook, It Is said, Induced William J. Wright to deposit checks pur porting to represent 1,100 In his account In the Mouut Morris bank. These all bore Mr. Muhleraan's name. Cook explained that thsy were contribu tions to the republican fund, and the com mittee, not desiring to let the amount ot the subscriptions be generally known, baa arranged to cash the checks In different banks. Wright gave Cook $1,100 In cash, and a few days ago the prisoner appeared again with $1.T00 In checks. Tho bank officials began an Investigation and found that the checks had been forged. Other similar transactions have been reported from the Interior, which lead to tho supposition that the total receipts by the forgeries will not fall short ot $100,000. Treasurer Cornelius N, Bliss, of the na. tlonal committee, says that Cook had no connection with that body. Cook was onco associated with a subtreasury official and once had undertaken to organize a political literary bureau, and In that way had se cured letters from members ot the com mittee. On tho strength of these letters the man had obtained funds. The sum of $900 had been traced to htm, Mr, Bliss said. He believes that the real sum obtained by Cook Is greater.

DECLARE STRIKE OFF United Mine Workers Will Allow Partial Resumption of Work. LEADERS AT LAST COME TO AN AGREEMENT Operators Who Have Granted Demands Can Open Up Their Pita. MEN EXPECTED TO RETURN MONDAY Ban Still to Rest on Companies Which Refute to Give Advance. PRESIDENT MITCHELL TO GIVE STATEMENT New Dinieiiltr Presents Itself In llnilrtoit District Where Incrense Is Orantril, but no Mention Is .Marie of SHIdlnB Scale. HAZLETON. I.. Oct. 25. The mine workers' strike has been declared oft ngalujt all companies which havo com piled with the strikers' demands nnd tho strlko will bo continued against those companies which havo not granted tho Scrnnton convention's demands. The strikers will return to work Mon day at tho places where the tlcup Ii ended. A new dlfllrulty presented Itself today when the Lehigh & Wllkesbarve Coal com pany posted a supplemental notice at Its collieries In the Hazleton district to the effect that the company will pay Its men 2i cents additional on a car ot coal to tL'Eko up the 10 per cent Increase tn wages. The notice says nothing about abolishing tho sliding scale, nor does It gunrantco tho lncreaso until April. To the mtno work ers theso are two vital points. These notices aro tho same as thoso previously posted by the company at Its mines In the Wllkesbarre district, where the slldlug scalo never existed. (ircnt Jo)- nt llnreltnn. There was much rejoicing tonight when tho anouncement was made that the coal strike was at an cud in so tar It concerned tho collieries whero the conditions de manded by tho miners had been compiled with. The nous spread quickly nnd soon telegrams began to arrive at headquarters. Most of them congratulated President Mitchell on the successful ending ot thu contest. Everywhere la the region local unions had been awaiting the news nnd In a mo ment after the decision ot the conference was reached tho three district presidents began telephoning a synopsis of tho state mcnt to every mining town lu the coal fields. By this means tho wholo region hcaid the news In a short time. The mine workers of this district firmly believe that all the operators against whom the strike has not been declared off will concede tho demands ot the miners by Mon day. In fact it was said by one of tho higher odlcers of the union that the state ir.au&.wau n-a .liswr. up until ppaitlvi at surances had been received thai thq other companies would comply with the demands. No such nssurance, however, was received ns far as could bo learned from G. 11. Marklo & Co. in this district, which Is the only company that has not offered an In crease of wages. President Mitchell de clined to say anything In regard to the Marklo company's position other than tbnt the mlno workers' offer was so fair that he could think of no valid reason why that company should not glvo that which the miners ask. Tho United Mine Workers' headquarters will probably bo closed next week. Presi dent Mitchell will bo la Scrauton on Sat urday to participate In n breaker boys' dem onstration, after which hn will make a tour ot tho entire anthracite region. Plans havo been mapped out for Jolllfl- cutlou meetings In various parts ot the coal fields. Later on President Mitchell will go to Now York to attend a Clgarmakers' union meeting, after which ho will return to national headquarters at Indianapolis. Mitchell's Official Statement. The following statement was given out for publication tonight by President Mitch ell of tho United Mine Workers: TEMPORARY HEADQUARTERS OK I N1TED MINE WORKERS OF AMER ICA. HAZLETON. Pa.. Out. 25. 1900. To the Miners and Mlno Workers of the An thracite Region Gentlemen: After care fully cunvasalng tlii entlro situation we, your olllcen, district nnd natlonul, have concluded that your victory is so nearly complete thnfno good end can bo served by continuing the strike longer. The con test has been in progress for thlrty-nlnn days and the companies employing you have, with few exceptions, signified their wi'llngness to pay the scale of wages for mulated by the Hcranton convention of October 12 and IX We are nwure thnt some disappointment and dissatisfaction has been caused by the fulluru of operators lu districts 1 and 7 to separate tho reduction in tho price of pow der from tho ndvanco la wages, but after rnrcftil Inquiry wo aro natlsiled that each mlno employ will actually receive nn ad vance of 10 per cent on the wnKCs formerly paid. In tho Schuylkill and Lehlgli regions the largest companies havo agreed that the sliding scaltt should bo suspended and that wages should remain stationary at 10 per cent until April 1, 1001. thus removing ono of the lnliultles of which you bavo com plained for many yenrs. Whllo It Is true that you have not se cured redress for all your wrongs; while It la triui that the lncreaso In your earn ings will not fully compensate you for tno arduous labor you aro compelled to perform, you havo established a powerful organization which If maintained nnd con ducted on business principles will enable you to reguUto many of yiur Ioeal grlev ances and make your employment lers ImzarilnuH and moro prolltablu than before tho strike began. Advises Grievance Committers. The companies agreo In their notices to take up with their mine employes all griev ances complained of. We would therefore advise that when work Is resumed com mittees be selected by the mine employes and that they wait upon the superintend cnts of the companies and prenent their grievances lu an orderly, business. llko man ner nnd iiHk that they be corrected Your attention Is respcctfnly ca'.led to the fact that laws of tho state of Pennsyl vanlo provldo thai miners should be paid semi-monthly upon demand We should therefore advise that each mine employe iiiirn ,i,i In., on the romnanv that ho ex pects lo bo paid his wages twice, each month, as provided by law Tho practical benefits to the miners which nccruo from thorough organization have been so clearly demonstrated daring this strlko that It should be needless for us to urge upon you tho necessity of maintain ing your union Intact. We trust, however, that those who are now members of tho union will be unceasing In their efforts to Induce ull other mine workers to ally them selves with the I'nlted Mlno Workers of America at once, as It will be Impossible for you to secure high" wages In tho future or even to main' in the present rate of wagea unlenH you .re prepared to offer a united re slstencc If any attempt Is made to reduce your earnings upon the expiration of the present olfer. Strike on Auulnst These, Ah thero nrn somu few companies who havo neither postrd. untitled nor signified In any other manner their willingness to pay the 10 per cent advance In wages and suspend th sliding acnle we would ndviso that unless tho men employed by such com panies receive notice before Monday that the advance will be paid they remnln away from Uic mines and continue on strike until
