railroads were plentitni. Beyond the
general statement that the principle
point under discnssion was the advt.a
bilitr or practibility of granting the
mineworkers a 10 per cent advance in
wages, very little of the details of the
meeting could be learned. The oper
ators generally expressed the opinion
that the increase cinld not-be granted,
and the operating; expenses met, unless
there is an advanco in the price ol coal.
The larger operating companies, how
ever, took rather a hesitating view ol
the proposals to increase further the
price of anthracite, contending that th
competition of bituminous coal was now
to sharp.
Piesident Mltciei), of the united
mineworkers, is reticent on the general
question of accepting a 10 per cent
crease without other concessions, and
declined to be interviewed oa that point,
Meantime, the strike leaders are con

All eyes were turned toward New
York in expectation of gome important
announcement from there
President Ca9Sutt. of the Pennsylvania
Railway company, was asked whether
be had anything to say with reference to
the statements as to the settlement of
the strike. Mr. Cassatt replied that he
had read the statements, but that the
Pennsylvania Railway company had not
been a party to the negotiations referred
to. The company was so small a factor
in the anthracite trade, he said, that
the great anthracite carrying companies
could act without reference to it. Mr,
Cassatt said that in all such matters it
had been the uniform policy of the
Pennsylvania Railroad Company
throughout its entire existence to deal
only with its own employes directly,
and it had always found them quite ca
pable of presenting their own case and
of protecting their interests id the dis-
cas-ioDS which occurred. Access was
always easy by any of its employes de
siring to present any sach natter to the
executive officers, and the officers of
this company were firm in the belief
that it was wine to adhere to their uni
form policy in the present instance, be
lieving such a course to be for the beet
interests of both employer and em
ployed. In saying this Mr. Cassatt
added he had no desire to criticise the
acts of any other company whose officeis
thought to ne other course mora condu
cive to its interests.

Cerman Officers Preparing for War.
Nuw Yobk. Sept. 28. That the officers
and men In the German army are firm
in the belief that war is imminent be
tween Germany and China is reflected
in the unusual number of applications
which have been made to a life ineurancs
company in this citj for policies on their
lives. Hundreds of applications have
been received through a Berlin agency.
The process of issuing these policies
for rieks'which have proved acceptable
was begun several days ago by one com
pany, and a large corps of clerks has
since been employed night and dsy pre
paring the policies to be sent abroad,
Information which came from Berlin
was of such ii character that th declara
tion o' war was believed to be close at
With each application there was a
request that it should be issued at once
and the risk made binding. The request
was also made to have the policies sent
to Germany as sneedilv as possible. In
order to do this the extra clerks were set
to work.

Piuladki.I'hia, Sept. 30. An offer of
an increase of 10 per cent in miners'
wages was today made by the Philadel

and this move, it is stated, will be fol
lowed on Tuesday by similar notices at
every colliery in the anthracite region.
It is expected by tbe operators that
this increrse in wages will be satis

that many strikers will take advantage
of the offer and return to work. Mining
operations will in this event be given an

Washington; Sept. 29. More trea
sonable Filipino coriepondence has
been captured which shows that the
present outbreaks are for tbe purpose
of influencing the elections in tbe Unit'
ed States. F. Sundico, writing to an
other man, shows that he is urging all
of the leaders not accept anything in
the way of peace proposals by tbe Phi
lippino Commission, but to stand firm.
He says:
"If the election of Mr. McKinlev he
accomplished and tbe revolution in
China be wiped out, and the war in the
Transvaal take on new complications,
then I will be the first to accept the
peace that I believe to be necessary,
though it be at tbe cost of acknowled
ing the sovereignty of the United States,
since I consider that our forces are now
impotent to defend our sacred and le
gitimate rights."
Sandico is the man so often quoted by
Pettigrew in behalf of the anti-expan-eionists.
A letter from the general Philipplno
junta at Hong Kong, to be distributed
among the leading insurgents in the
Philippines, contains much more of the
same sort, and also much in the way of
misrepresentation of the purposes of
this government, and urges all Filipinos
to submit to no armistice unless it con
tains a promise of independence.
General Funston baa written a letter
saying be has captured documents con
taining instructions transmitted by
Afeninaldo to bis subordinates to keep

they may bring about the defeat of Mc

month or more, President E. J. Buffing
ton, of that company, gave out the fol
lowing statement :
"We hava shut down our Joliet plant

One of the most startling and sensa
