Passage of a Compulsory ArbltraVon
Law of No Effect Unless the Parties
to the Agreement Are Responsible
for Carrying Cut Its Provisions.
Refuses to Discuss His Reported Re
tirement From the Bench.
Pittsburg, Aug. 2S.—Justlco Sfairas
of the United States supreme court,
who has just arrived in Pittsburg lrom
a long vacation spent along the north
ern shores of Lake Superior, refuses
to discuss his reported retirement
from the bench further than to say
that President Roosevelt would be the
first person to learn of it and that he
had not received the announcement
On the subject of the anthracite coal
strike Justice Shiras said:
"Arbitration Is the logical method
of settling labor troubles such as this
one, which affects the general pros
perity and comfort of a great section
of the country. The method and en
forcement of this arbitration is a sub
ject for the lawmakers of the nation
but arbitration itself is logical.
"There is now one great difficulty
standing in the way of an arbitration
law. Many of the labor unions are
not incorporated. Until they are no
law can be made binding, as no con
tract or agreement could be enforced
upon them, while the operators, on the
other hand, could be held liable.
"Incorporation of all labor unions is
the primary step toward the passage
of an arbitration law. The unions
must be responsible for the carrying
out of an agreement and until they are.
there is little hope for compulsory ar
bitration of labor troubles."
IN AN UGLY MOOD.
Striking Miners in Panther Creek Val
ley Causing Trouble.
Ttmaqua, Pa., Aug. 2S.—The fact
that the striking miners in the Panther
Creek valley are in a very ugly mooii
was shown during the day when sev
eral of the poles of the trolley linc
which runs from this place to Summit
Hill were chopped down and the wiret?
rut. This was probably done to pre
vent troops from being sent from Ma
nila park, where they are encamped, to
Lansford and Summit Hill. Major
Cearlmrt outwitted the strikers, how
ever, by taking two companies of sol
diers to Summit Hill an hour before
they were expected.
In Lansford. Summit Hill and Coal
dale the detachments of soldiers that
were sent out at daybreak to preserve
order and protect nonunion men were
greeted by large crowds of strikers who
hooted them and called them names.
At Coaldale the soldiers were com
pelled to get off the cars and force tlu
mob back from the tracks. In I.ans
ford a crowd of women joined in hoot
ing the guardsmen. Major Gearhart
admitted that the situation is serious.

White Silk Driving «nt» and Trim
White silk driving coats are cliic.
Smart women have lost no time in or
dering beauties, as thoy are to make
them a decided feature of dress pa

elaborately trimmed—affairs with lace,

several inches more in the back, thus

The unsightly yellow spots so fre

Tokio. Aug. 15. via Victoria. B. C.,
Aug. 28.—'This is a period when the
United States seems to be looking aft
er the Pacific islands. First it was

the Washington authorities recognized
Japan's claim thereto. The incident
caused a little llutter at first and a

been received of Captain Ros^hill's

shown herself to be the friend of Ja

for women. In the home the mistress
sees the maid with the signs of suffering

nothing for them. It is work or quit.
