KOYAL BAKING POWDER CO., New York. TRUE UNIFORMITY Arbitration Commissioners Think It Is Not a Great Distance Away. Majority of Pittsburg Operators Consent to the Calling of a Conference, Little Coal Being Received From West Virginia—Miners Want Back Pay. PITTSBUHO, July 24.—The arbitration nmissioners, who are trying to settle rti/. coal strike, liavo finally succeeded in 'getting the consent of a majority of the operators of the Pittsburg district to join in a general conference for the pur pose of discussing the true uniformity plan. The date has not been decided upon, but it will be fixed for some day within the next week, and will proba bly be Monday or Tuesday. The great est difficulty found by the arbitrators in pushing the movement has been a cer tain lethargy on the part of the operat ors. The cause of this state of affairs ie the fact that they look upon arbitra tion as ineffectual. They have little iiope of settling the strike by this means and are therefore slow to act. In no case, however, has there been direct op position to arbitration. General Little, president of the board, stated that the matter was now very near a climax. After this meeting had been held, he thinks there will be but little difficulty in completing other ar rangements for the selection of arbitrat ors. General Little says the miners have all expressed their approval of the agreement and are ready to do all in eir power to bring the question to an early settlement. The agreement, as prepared, is not entirely satisfactory to some of the oper ators in all its provisions. The objec tionable clauses will be taken up at the meeting and changed to 6uit the desires of all concerned. Floemcliiem Getting in Line. Henry Floersclieim, who is one of the largest operators in the district, in serted advertisements in the papers of fering his company stores for sale. He says he is getting in line for the uni formity movement and no one can ac cuse him of operating "pluck me" stores hereafter. The mines of the Washington Coal «nd Coke company at Stickle Hollow are in full operation, and 50 cars of coal are being shipped from the mines every day. Armed deputies are on guard to pro tect the men, and a Gatling gun is in readiness for immediate use in case of attack. The Pittsburg, McKeesport and Yougliiogheny load, which is carrying this coal, abandoned their trains one night this week on account of the dis covery of obstructions upon the track, placed there, it is claimed, for the pur pose of wrecking the coal trains from the Washington mines. The railroad company has increased its force of track walkers, and they are now but one mile apart. LITTLE COAL ARRIVING. Notwithstanding Denialn It IH Thought liailroacU Are Coniiseating It. CLEVELAND, July 24.—General Man ager W. R. Woodford of the Cleveland, Lorain and Wheeling road admits that his road is not hauling much West Vir ginia coal. He says his company has on hand coal enough to List GO days. Thomas E. Young, manager for M. A. Hanna & Co., received a telegram- to the effect that the operatives at the Reynoldsville and Watson mines in the West Virginia fields, had joined the strikers. For some reason West Vir ginia coal is not arriving in Cleveland in any considerable quantities. It would appear that the railroads, their denials notwithstanding, are confiscat ing it at the price at mines on cars. Reliable dealers declare there is a market in Cleveland for every pound of coal coming forward, and this state ment is confirmed, it would seem, by the fact that one of the largest power establishments in the city bought sev —, Ill v '"I .» —•M' eral cars of blacksmith's coal at $3.25 a ton where it had previously burned slack at 05 cents and $1 per ton. Coal Scarce at St. Lou is. ST. LOUIS, July 24.—The Tudor Iron Works, in East St. Louis, has closed down three of its departments, letting out 150 men, on account of the scarcity of coal. It is stated that unless these works obtain a supply of coal within a very few days the entire mill will have to shut down, thus throwing 600 men out of work. It is also stated that coal is very scarce at the packing house at and near the National stock yards, just north of East St. Louis, and that if re lief does not come very soon they will have to close and let out 2,000 employes. Seven Hundred More Out. POMEROY, O., July 24.—The 700 min ers in what is known as the Ohio bend have quit work and joined the strikers. This part of the Ohio mining region be longs to the West Virginia district min ers. Begins to Affect Joliet Factories. JOUET, Ills., July 24.—The coal strike has begun to affect the manufacturers of Joliet. The Consolidated Wire and Steel company, employing 200 men, have closed down for want of coal. WOULD LOSE MONEY. Carnegie and tlctlileliein Com pittite* de fuse Government Offers for Armor. WASHINGTON, July 24 —Secretary Long has received replies from the Car negie and the Bethlehem companies to his invitation to submit bids for supply ing armor for the three battleships Illinois, Wisconsin ami Alabama, in ac cordance with the limitations placed by congress upon the price to be paid for the armor. Both of the companies de cline firmly to bid within the 6300 limit, on the ground that it is not possible for them to produce armor of the qual ity they have been supplying to the government at that figure. The Carne gie company makes an offer, which it is understood the Bethlehem concern is willing to repeat to supply the diagonal armor for the three battleships at a price to be fixed by the navv depart ment at its pleasure. This offer is made in order that the work on the ships shall not be entirely stopped by the fail ure to procure armor. The ship buiki ers, if this is done, will be able to go on with their work until the ships are afloat, inasmuch as the diagonal armor, or that constituting the bulkheads, is all of the armor that is built into the ships structure. The amount of such armor will not exceed SO tons for each ship, a very small proportion of tbe total supply required. Gold Coming Front Australia. NEW YOKK, July 24 —A special cablegram from Loudon to the ening Post says: Arrangements have been made to ship direct to the United States a considerable amount of gold from Australia. This is not generally known, and coming at a moment when gold movements from New York to London are looked for, will create much interest. FRONTIER Ad KEKM EA r. Ambassador* and Tewflk I'IIKIIH dome to Terms. CONSTANTINOPLE, July 24.—The am bassadors of the powers and Tewfik Pasha have agreed upon the frontier clause in the peace treaty. The line drawn by the military attaches and in sisted upon from the first by the powers has been accepted by the sultan with slight technical modifications. The reports that the Turkish forces have begun to evacuate Tliessaly are confirmed. Dje vad Pasha has started on a special mission to Crete. The palace party contends that his experience especially qualifies him to bring about an under standing between the admirals of the international fleet and the Mussulman Cretans with reference to autonomy.' In consequence of the recent raids by Albanians into Servian territory, the Servian foreign minister has informed the porte that if further incursions take place the Servian troops will be ordered to pursue the raiders to Ottoman terri tory and that they are now held in readiness at Prokouplye, prepared to start for the frontier immediately. The Servian minister adds that in the event of another raid the Servian government will decline all responsibility for the consequences. Will Go Into Eil'ect Promptly. WASHINGTON, July 24.—The treasury officials have made preparations to put the tariff act into operation immedi ately upon its receiving the signature of the president. Copies of the bill have been sent to customs officers throughout the country and collectors have been in structed to make the change from the old law to the new upon receipt of trustworthy information, official or oth erwise, that the bill has received the president's approval. Oregon's I«rge Wheat Crop. PORTLAND, Or., July 24.—Advices from every wheat growing county in Oregon show that the wheat crop will be tlio largest in the history of the state. Eastern Oregon, it is estimated, will produce 11,500,000 bushels, wkiie the Western Oregon crop will amount to about 0,600,000, making a total of 18,000,000 bushels for the state.

IN THE LAST DAYS Senator Teller Explains His Posi tion in the Pending Tariff Measure. Not Satisfactory, But Its Passage Will Allow Transaction of Other Business. Governor Pingree Predicts the Promoters Will Reckon With the People. WASHINGTON, July 24.—There was nc outward evidence when the senate met that the session was fast drawing to a close, although senators gathered in groups and discussed the prospects oi getting away. House bill was passed authorizing the president to suspend discriminating duties imposed on foreign vessels and commerce. A joint resolution was passed for the erection of a government building at the Transmississippi International Ex position at Omaha. The consideration of the tariff con ference report was then resumed, and Mr. Teller (Colo.) took the floor for a general speech. He said he did not fa vor the pending bill, and did not believe it would accomplish the purposes of its friends. Its passage, however, would dispose of the question and enable con gress to devote its attention to othei subjects. He regarded the Money ijuestfon as the Paramount One. The last campaign was not, in his judg ment, an endorsement of the gold standard. A great many people who voted for the Republican candidate did not believe in the gold standard but felt that that the tariff question was more important than that affecting finance. Mr. Teller turned his attention to the political methods of the last campaign. It was the most remarkable contest in our history, he said, remarkable for the agencies set at work and the methods employed for the first time. A system of terrorism, of deception, of fraud, the like of which had never before been seen was put in operation. And having been successful in this, the senator expressed the fear that such methods had become a permanent part of our political system, until the people were aroused and repudiated them. If any one challenged these statements, then Mr. Teller said he would go into details. SCORED BY Pf!WREE. Michigan's Governor Gives His Opinion of the Tariff Kill. DETROIT, July 24.—TheEvening News publishes an interview with Governor Pingree, in which the governor de nounces the pending tariff bill. He says the duty on hides means an average in crease of 25 cents on men's shoes. He asserts that Armour, Swift, Morris and Libbev control the hide market and will coin millions out of it. As to sugar, Governor Pingree said: "I wish some one would tell me how a sugar duty that makes people pay more is going to benefit them, or how a higher price for sugar is going to bring prosperity. It seems to me that the trust is going to reap all the benefits." "The lumber schedule hits people of moderate means the hardest. It in creases 62 the price per thousand. Not much lumber is used these days in busi ness blocks and fine city residences. It's the farmer and workingman who have cause to complain, for they cannot afford brick and stone. And it's all for the benefit of the few who control the remaining pine in Michigan and ad joining states. "I don't recall that the Dingley bill imposes any additional duty on paint ings or diamond*. It is the necessary commodities thi^t are to bear the in creased taxes. The promoters of this bill ought to be proud of it. I predict a reckoning for them yet, with the people." WILL STAMP IT OUT. Railroads Join With State Health De partment to Fight Hog Cholera. ST. PAUL, July 24.—The ravages of hog cholera in this and adjoining states this year will be kept down to a mini mum, if the concerted action of the railroads and the state health depart ment avail anything. Efforts are being made at present to stamp out the plague wherever it makes an appearance, and reports from different sections of the state are to the effect that it is not nearly as general as last year. It is estimated that the loss from the swine plague in Mini^sota alone lias amounted to nearly $l,5cd,000, while the loss to the country at Urge approiuaiwkul 120,000,000. Will Ask Curseon About It. LONDON, July 24.—Mr. James Francis Hogan, Anti-Pavnellite member for Middle Tipperary, has given notice that on Monday next he will ask the Hon. George N. Curzon, under secretary for the foreign office, whether the provision of the Clayton Bulwer treaty to the ef fect that neither Great Britain nor the United States shall annex Hawaii, is still recognized by both power* as of b&ndinff force. i Paper Company Assigns. CHICAGO, July 25.—The Dwight & Barnett Paper company, dealers in printing and wrapping iaper, has as signed. The assets are placed at 640,000 and liabilities at 650,OUO.
