The opera tore Indicate what class nf men should be selected for the personnel of the commis sion. For Instance, they say that an ex pert mining engineer experienced la the milling of coal and other minerals and not in any way connected with coal mining properties, shall bo one of the members. 1 In Other words, this one must be an expert miner out of a Job. This member must either have been employed In the mines as an expert or mut expect or hope to bo employed In the future as an expert. Another must be an eminent sociologist.

Y. of work, has addressed some sort of corn- munlcatlon to Mr. Mitchell In connection with the operators' proposition and that a reply from him may come at any time. In deed, It would not be surprising If Mr. Mitchell has been Invited to come and talk over the situation. Secretary Root was again at the White Houso, for an hour this afternoon. ' Tbs president. has agreed, to appoint tho commission suggested by the coal operators, provided such a commission should prov satisfactory to the miners. The feeling at the White. House is op timistic. The belief is general among omciai ana civilian callers mat a long step has been taken toward a final settle- men of 'ho strike. Until Mr. Mitchell . . ., niakes his reply no further action on tho part of the president is expected. It develoDed todav that the main featnraa ot tne operators' proposition were dls- cussed and in a general way agreed to at the conference between Secretary Root and J. Plerpont Morgan In New York on Saturday last. Mr. Morgan was . very anxious to bring about an adjustment and Secretary Root was able to point out means whereby the main obstacles to yielding on the part ot the operators could be removed. Opinion of Strike Leaders. SHENANDOAH, Pa., Oct. 14. The opln ion ot the strik leaders here is that Mr. Mitchell will not accept the proposition submitted to President Roosevelt by the mine operators. P. J. Sweeney, a prominent leader, said: The proposition Is not fair, and I don't think Mr. Mitchell will accept It, and If he did the mine workers would not. It is a ruse of the operators to divert public sym- pathy from the miners waeu 10- day communicated his views on the proposed arbitration to representatives of both sides I find the situation to be that the oper ronnter nmnnriiinn wtn ators have made a proposition and that a come rrom tne e two propositions ars brought together I see no obstacle to a speedy resumption of work. The miners have slways "bftn willing to arbitrate, as is evidenced by Mr. Mitchell's original proposition to leave the matter to a commission appointed by the president. Recognising the serious situation of the general public, the operators have practi cally agreed upon the same thing. I repeat that 1 feel sure of at least a temporary resumption of work, and to say that I am heartily glad la putting it mildly. The regulas weekly meeting of the coal operators today was preceded by a confer ence with a committee ot tha National As sociation of Manufacturers; when the sa lient points of a plan to settle the anthra cite coal strike were submitted by the manufacturers. Tha operators will consider this plan while the mine workers aro reaching a long standing purify the blood by tasini rtlPhira HiOOU TOXK, by naiag Rem tr It's Eeaoraa sppliuauoa gives inatout roll. BOROZONC a mil k$m conclusion In regard to Ihe proposal of ar bitration submitted at Washington yester day. . . ..' A member of Ihe manufacturers ssld that he knew the association's plan would be acceptable lo Mr. Mitchell and that It would be considered by Ihe operators If the mine workers reject their arbitration offer. The curators began their meeting Im mediately after the conference with thi manufacturers and at the close President Baer, of the Reading, said that no state ment would be given out regarding It. The members of the manufacturers' com mittee at the conference were David Parry, president of the. association;' Frank Leake of Philadelphia, and Richard Young of thin city. According to President Parry's secretary at the meeting between Mr. Mitchell and the representatives of the manufacturers association at Buffalo last week. Mr. Mitchell agreed to forego the recognition of the union If there was a general ad vance In wages of 10 per cent. AH the leading operators were present at the meeting except President Olyphant and Vice President Wilcox, of the Delaware and Hudson. ' Did Xot t onaalt Mitchell. Mr. Baer was asked If the president had any Intimation that the proposition made to President Roosevelt was acceptable to the miners. "You will have to see Mr. Mitchell," was the reply. "We certainly did not consult Mr.. Mitchell." "Do you consider that tho proposition submitted to the president in the nature of a recession from the stand taken by the operators?" he was asked. "I happen to have drawn th proposition myself," Mr. Baer replied, "at least I had a considerable part in preparing It. and I may state that it embodied my opinions and views. Further than that I cannot say anything." John - Markle, the Independent operator, declared he had nothing to say when asked why he did not sign the statement offering arbitration. It developed here tonight . that Nathan Strauss of New York, with the assistance of J, P. Morgan, has been endeavoring for tho last few days to end the strike. Mr. Strauss received assurances from Mr. Morgan that if the men would return to work be vould see that Justice was done, but be did not care to have any thing to do with the union. TLa proposition was laid before Mr. Mitch ell and he refused it on the ground that he would not advise the men to return to work on the hope that Mr. Morgan would do something for them. The threo district presidents were with Mr. Mitchell late tonight discussing the sit uation. They will take up the operators' arbitration plan tomorrow. LONDON, Oct. 14. The largest firm In the Liverpool coal trade has received a cable dispatch from New York saying that no further offers could be made for English coal. Four steamers were chartered yesterday to take coal to Boston from the Tyne. THINKS END CF STRIKE NEAR Secretary of avy Moody Hpealcs Hopefully of the Coal Mine Itaatlon. "Yes, if I were to venture an opinion on tbs subject I should say that the end of the anthracite coal mine strike baa been brought very near us by the"' transections at Washington Monday, of wnico ws gratefully learned In the morning press re ports," said Secretary of the Navy Moody yesterday afternoon. "I have no definite in formation on the matter, in fact, all I know is' what I have read in the papers, but from the way it looks now I believe the terrible struggle that has cost so dearly Is about over." Secretary Moody ia one ot tho three law yers ot ths cabinet (Secretary Root and Attorney General Knox being the other two) whom the president called in for conference when he first determined to take action to ward settling the coal mine strike, and he therefore has been more than ordinarily Interested In this matter all along. Contin uing his remarks upon the subject he said: "President Roosevelt's earnestnets and sincerity In this matter, I am gratified to learn, are correctly understood and thor oughly appreciated in the west as far as J have gone as they are in ths east. I feel sure the people all over the country will applaud his efforts and the motives behln.l them. "You ask If President Mitchell will ac- rept the terms tentatively agreed to by the operators Yes, as I have already said, it ia my Impression ha will. President Mitch- ell's original proposition did not, as so condone or Justify any ot them, understand many seem to think, demand a formal rec- me, they can be explained, and any fair ognitlon of ths miners' union as one of the minded, reasonable person knows it. essential conditions of pesce.

The policy of the repub Workers' Union ot America shall be dealt llcan party Is on record. We propose to with as a body in effecting a settlement of this strike, and that seems to have been at last agreed ty by the operators. All tho other conditions which President Mitchell named in his first proposition I should re gard as fully and satisfactorily covered in tho terms outlined this morning. 80, as I bavs said, I think the end Ik at hand. TARIFF BREEDS PROSPERITY Secretary Shaw Defet.als Polley of Protection Against Democratic Attacks. BALTIMORE. Md.. Oct. 14. Leslie M. Shaw, secretary of the treasury, spoke to night at a republican mass meeting here. "Our democratic friends," he said "are ever extending sympathy to tha oppressed taxpayers. They have always complained most bitterly and sympathised with ths plain, common people, when there has been surplus of public revenue. Again and again they bavs declared that there should be no more revenues collected than are necessary for the maintenance of the gov ernment, economically administered. "I am not surprised or wonder at the ap parent ease with which, under a protective policy, revenuos are provided. The secret is in ths consuming capacity of the Ameri can people. "Whenever ths product of American labor is protected from competition with cheaper foreign labor, tbs American laborer con sumes; and whenever tbs Amerlcsn Isborer consumes, the American farmer finds a ready market for the products ot his farm; and whenever the farmer has a market, hs in turn becomes a consumer and the Ameri can manufacturer also finds a market, and he in turn employs labor, and so ths cir cuit Is completed and repeated.

I am much pleased wtr the deliverance of the New York democracy 'on the tariff lame ;am 1 wa fitting and proper that the Empire state should sound the right note, it Is my clear conviction that the best chance for success of the demociacy In the next national campaign will be found in a sincere and unremitting Insistence upon its old-time doctrine of a fair and benefi cent tariff readjustment. Naccess Depends on Tariff This insistence should be from now 011. It need hardly be said that success will depend Upon the presentation of tariff doc trine, not only recognised as trulv demo cratic by those wpo may he termed veter ans In the party, but also commending Itself to the hosts of the younger men of our land.

I am at a loss to understand by. what process of reasoning the notion has gained a footing in certain democratic quarters, not only that no Importance attaches to a democratic ascendancy in the next house of representatives, hut even. that It might be advantageous to party prospects In 19o4 for It to continue In Its present minority now.

There were occasional acts of Inhumanity, . of course, and while we do not seek to give these people Just as much self-govern- ment as they show themselves capable of.

'I had used coffee moderately up to six years e.go,". writes a lady from Piney Creek, Md., "when I was aelzed with an attack of nervous prostration and was constantly under treatment for nearly three years. After my recovery, I once took a cup of coffee and It made mi so sick I did not want any more. "After the nervous prostration my stom ach was-very weak, ao that I had . to be careful with my appetite. As soon as I would eat certain things I would have an attack of stomach trouble, sometimes laatlng several weeka, so when I was at tacked by erysipelas two years ago my stomach was immediately out of order. I kept getting worse until nothing would stay on ny stomach, not even rice water or milk and I was so weak I had to be fed with a spoon. I bad a caving for some thing Ilk coffee, but that was impossible, so father went to town and , got soma Postum Food Coffee, and when hs asked the doctor If I might havs it. he quickly answered, 'yes.' Mother made it ex actly as directed and brought ms part of a cup and it was delicious, satisfied every craving, and, best of all, stayed on my stomach without distress, giving comfort Instead. For several days I lived on Postum, gradually increasing the amount I took until I could drink a cupful. Then I began to take solid food with it and so got wl and strong again. I now use It constantly and I am entirely free from any stomscb trouble. "Father and mother both use It. Coffee mad mamma nervous and disagreed with her stomach so that she would tast It for hour after drinking. Father had stomach troubls for flv or six years and used to be deprived of various articles of food oa account of it. Now hs can eat anvtblng sines he quit coffee and uses Postuw.

Under modern conditions we need a strong snd powerful fleet a fleet that can fight.- We want in that navy not only ships that ran tight, but men who can fight and we are getting' them, too. We heed more officers.-too, to give tis tha kind of navy that we need to enforce the Monroe doctrine, upon which we stead fastly stand. Let us have a powerful navy, cost what It may snd In it you will find a sure guarantee of the accomplishment of the nation's destiny." In closing Mr. Moody1 paid a beautiful tribute to Admiral Dewey. Though In a single . day he bad achieved the highest honors possible for him and rhanged ths map of the world, and whose nobje services had been awarded by the president of the United States bestowing lifelong honors upon him at tho end of his glorious career, he refuses to be idle and ruebee back Into active service with as much vim and en thusiasm as a young and ambitious lieu tenant; "Men like George Iewey we need." said the secretary, "to give us a powerful and Invincible; navy."

In the Jlght ni fucIi statement, then, can It be poxslble that the people of the I'nlted 8tte. feeling the pressure of undoubted evlla. are nevertheless totally powerless? Is It true thet although they know with growing certainty the nature of the wrong and are seeking a remedy, the constitution hh it stands does not per mit them to pursic it; that amendment to that vhurter Is "first necessary; that the power of congress tines not now ex tend over' detriments Injuring the entire body of cltlxens In their moM vital con cerns because these detriments originate In the states although the states In the aggregate, and by the co-operation which Is essential, do nothing effective lo remove them?

If the answer to this question should be in the affirmative, a second question follows: How might congress so amend the present law? 1 do not scruple to say that . in my Judg ment the more thoughtful mind reflects on tho first question, the more unhesitat ingly will an affirmative answer be re turned. The extent to which' legislative control over commercial activities should be ex ercised is. of .course, a nueatlnii for leais latlve wisdom.

One of his at torneys, looked for and found Butler still in his room at .the hotel. Shortly after Butler appeared in court. Judge,., Chester'. Krum, for the defense, opaqed tre argument on the demurrer.. In supporting the demurrer to the Butler In dictment tbe defense made its strongest argument , against, the, validity of the gar bage .reduction contract, let by the , Board of Wealth,, members .of , which..

Court, took a recess for a few mo menta while awaiting the grand Jurors sum moned for this term of court.- After charg ing f his body tbe. Butler case was resumed and ,Tlrcult Attorney Folk began his ad dress pgaipst tbe, demurrer. "The state's position," said Mr. Folk, "is, first, that . the work of garbage reduction is not public work in the sense that is meant in the statute concerning the pow ers of the Board of Public Improvements', second, the state holds that one charged with, bribery of an official cannot defend himself on the ground of lack of authority on the' part of that official. If tbe official was good enough for the defendant to tempt by dangling a bribe before his eyes, be Is good enough to answer the requirements of law as a witness on this charge. At noon court took a recess. In closing his argument Attorney Folk said: If a man offers a bribe to a public officer he must be prosecuted, whether he is Kdward Butler or some humbler man. Mr. Folk finished bis argument .at 2 o'clock and Judge Waller of Moberly, for the defense, attacked the' indictment on the ground that it did not show tbe power of the Board of Health to let the garbage contract.
