A PLEA I-OR MINERS
Public Funds . Solicited Wage
Earners Asked to Contribute .
Their Wages for One Hour
Each Monday Issues
Clearly Set Forth.
Washington, Oct. 11. The Atiier
can Federation of , Labor, through
its executive council, today issued
an address to the public, appealing
for financial and moral aid for the
striking anthracite miners, and de
nounsing the attitude of tbe mine
owners, on whom, the appeal says,
must rest the responsibility for the
hardship resulting from the coal
famine. The address has been un
der discussion in secret sessions of
the council for several days, and is
"To the public and organized la
bor: The strike of the miners is
now in its 23d week.- That' the
etrike occurred was entirely the
fault of the presidents cf the coal
companies. That the strike has con
tinued to this day is entirely due to
the contempt which the Dresident3
of the coal com panics have for the
people of our country, and the un
told sufferings which may endure.
No offer to settle the strike could be
fairer than that of the miners' rep
resentatives at the conference with
President Roosevelt. The opera
tors haughty arrogance, brutal,
dominating spirit and blasphemous
assumption of divine wealth, pro
prietorship, shook the universe, and
aroused the indignation of all .lov
ers of justice and fair dealing.-
"V7at more could the miners do
and maintain their self-respect and
not forget the re3pect of theiriellow
men, then their willingness to sub
mit all matters in dispute to a com
mission appointed by President
Roosevelt, and when that was re
fused, to leave the entire controver
sy to J. P. Morgan, one of the men
largely interested with the opera
tors?' There never has been a time,
either before the strike or since its
inauguration, tnat the miners have
not been e-ntirely willing to have
the questions involved in the min
ers claims investigated and adjust
ed, by any disinterested person.
"These circumstances in connec
tion with the strike afe ' iecounted
so that tbe people of - our country
may place, where it properly be
longs, the responsibilitv for all the
suffering which the people may
hare to bear by reason of the im
pending coal famine. The cold
blasts of winter confront us, as do
the chattering teeth of young and
innocent children ', the shivering of
the weak, poorly clad, underfed
men and women; the stoppage of
the wheels of industry and com
merce, the undermining of the gen
eral health and ..thousands driven
to untimely graves. : The calamity
threatening our entire social life
tranquility, with all the direct con
sequences which may follow, are
all upon the heads of the mine op
erators. ; . - .
"The principles, the cause for
which the miners are bearing the
greatest sacrifices and burdens are
as dear to the hearts of all as to the
miners. ; The miners must be sus
tained in-their righteous and holy
struggle. The miners must at least
have bread for themselves, their
wives and their little ones.
"In behalf of the miners, in be
half of the cause of freedom, for jus
tice and right, the undersigned, rep resenting
the organized wage earn
ers of America, appeal to all people
to contribute generouslv, promptly
and' to continue the same until' the
termination of this contest. , And
to that end, the following sugges
tions are made: . " .
"First That in each cjty ,ahd
town : business, professional and
public men form -relief committees
to solicit financial and other con
tributions. - " .'
"Second That the hours between
10 and 11 o'clock of each Monday
morning during the continuance of
the etrike, is designated as 'Miners
hour,' and the wages earned during
tnat nour bv tne working people of
our country be appropriated to the
miners. '. ," ' - ' : v :- "...
"That the ministers of the gospel
of all denominations make a special
plea to tneir respective congrega
tions each Sabbath morning in be
half of the miners, their wives and
children, and that thev constitute
themselves into relief committees
among their respective parishoners.
"Fourth That the daily, weekly
and labor press solicit contributions
from their readers; entertainments
be arranged and contributions from
unions and other organized bodies
solicited. - ' ,
"Fellow citizens, fellow wage earn
ers: Come to the aid of the miners
in. their heroic contest, and admin
ister a well-merited rebuke for the
arrogant, oppressive and unjustifia
ble attitude toward the miners of
the operators, who would trample
under foot and crush the hearts and
spirits of the men whom they em
ploy with equally callous indiffer
ence as they outrage dignity, the
.manhood and the interests of every
'man, woman and child in our land.

Baltimore Sun: The altitude of
the coal trust before the people is
incomprehensible. Tbeir response
to the president's efforts to settle
the strike and avert wliat may be
an unlawful calamity will excite
general indignation and divest the
coal corporations of all sympathy
from any reasonable man. The
president put the case of these men,
the representatives of the mine own
ers and the representatives of the
mineworkerp, in plain and forcible
language. Bat his strong appeal
feH upon deaf ears. It aroused no
sympathy for the euffering millions
when the winter comes. The pos
sibilities of rioting, bloodshed, suf
fering, sickness and mortality did
not move them. Each one with
hisxellar full of coal and with mag
nificent bank accounts was unmov
ed by the picture which the presi
dent presented to his view. These
men have in their grasp the fuel
supply of millions.' They have in
their control the roads to bring the
fuel to market. They show them
selves indifferent to the sufferings
and the necessities of the people. It
now remains to be seen what can
be done. Is the government power
less, is its arm paralyzed, that it
cannot protect the ' people in this
time of dangerand urgent need?
That is the question. '
Buffalo Courier: ; The president's
attempt to obtain relief for the suf
fering public failed, but it had the
effect of sharply . defining the case
for the people's ' understanding.
They can see who are the real a
archists in this country.
A eimplejword of refusal would
have been wiser than the lecture
(of Mr. Bier) to the president, and
the gratuitous insult to the intelli
gence and ' heart of tbe American

A TRAIN HOLD-UP
BOARDED PORTLAND-BOUND EX
PRESS AND SECURED $50,000.
Blew Up the Express Car and Safe
After Scaring Messenger Into
Opening the Door A Strike
- : Ended in Less Than
' ' ' an Hour.
Lincoln, Neb., Oat. ii. Three masked
men held up the Burlington train No. 41,
the Pacific Coast Express, four miles out
of Lincoln, shortly before 2 o'clock this
morning. - They used explosives on the
express car, shattering it badly, and alter
wrecking the safe, rifled it of its contents,
securing an amount thought to be $1500.
The loss in the train robbery is given
out by officials of the Burlington at 50,
OOOT' They have offered a . reward of
i,000 for the capture of the gang. The
Booty of the robbers consisted yrinc ipal
ly of gold coin. This made the burden
of the robbers exceedingly heavy, and ac
counts for the broad trail discovered by
Chief Hoagland. The robbery was orig
inally planned to take place at St. Jos
eph, and the railroad men were on the
lookout. One of the criminals "tipped"
the deal off to the company, and this
probably accounts for the shifting of the
crime to Lincoln, - ,''
Lincoln, Oct. n. Train No. 4i reach
es Lincoln at 12:55 A. M. and leaves for
the Northwest i0 minutes later. It was
a few minutes late this morning, and was
in charge of Conductor Lyman and En
gineer Clayburg. On the crest of a hill
midway between the city - and the town
of Woodland, the engineer saw a red
light waved across the track, and brought
the train to a standstill. Two men sprang
quickly into the cab and covered Clay-
buig and his fireman with revolvers.
They lost no time in giving their orders
and were just as promptly obeyed. The
express car was cut from the remainder
of the train and run ahead a short dist
ance. They found the door locked, and
after commanding Messenger . Willitm
Lupton to open it and getting no response
fired two or three shots into the car. The
door was then opened. A heavy charge
of dynamite on the safe literally tore it
to pieces. Fourteen packages said to
contain $i00 each were taken - together
with other valuables. The two men who
were in the car politely bade tbe train
men good morning, jumped from the car
and disappeared in the darkness. The
passengers were not molested, nor were
the trainmen asked for their belongings.
While the robbery in the express car
was going on, a third roDDer waiKea a-
long side the track by the passenger
coaches, firing his revolver occasionally
to keep the passengers quiet. Brakemau
Moor, who alighted from the rear coach
to go ahead," found a revolver pushed in
to his face, with a warning to ' , J Jl k
where he belonged. ' , He ran four miles
to the Lincoln yards and was the first to
give the alarm. The robbers were cool,
talkative and apperently experts. ' The
whole job occupied scarcely an hour. The
train wasrun back to Lincoln, the wreck
ed express car taken out, and at 4 o'clock
it resumed its journey, the original crew
going out with it. Following it was an
engine carrying Chief of Police Hoglan,
Detective Malone and two bloodhounds
and three police officers. At the scene of
the hold-up the hounds took the scent,
and the pursuit of the robbers was act

the anthracite coal region telegraphs" the
following from Wilkesbarre: "Poverty
and desolation stalk in the First anthra

the battle now being waged between the
strikers and the operators is tbe hard
ships forced on the women and children,
who are but thinly clad. , The women,

bleeding feet. Woinen and children'

- Danvert Oct. 11. Charles Moyer,
Presidenfof the Western Federa
tion of Miners, sent a dispatch last
night to President Mitchell at
Wilkesbarre, Pa , in which he offer
ed the co-operation of the Miners'
Federation in an effort to close ev
ery coal mine in the United States
and Canada pending a settlement
of the anthracite strike. Following,
is the text of the message:
Dedyer, Col., Oct. 8th.
John Mitchell, Wilkesbarre, Pa.r
Exigencies demand that no coal of
any kind be mined in the United
States and Canada until the an
thracite strike is won. The West
eun Federation of miners will co
operate to this end. ,
(Signed) CHAS. MOY, Pres.
To this message President Moyer
received the following reply:
Wilkesbarre, Pa., Oct., 8.
Charles Moyer, President West
ern Federation Miners, Denver
Col.: Telegram received. Shall
give careful consideration to your
suggestion. . Many thanks for the
proffer of co-operation and assist
ance. (Signed) JOHN MITCHELL.
"The significance of this corres
pondence," said President Moyer
today, "is far reaching. It means
that if President John Mitchell will
call out all his. men in every soft
and hard coal mine in this country
and Canada the Western Federa
tion of Miners will immediately co
operate with them and withdraw
every man we have in the coal fields
of the West, Northwest and Cana
da. And this will mean that the
stubborn trifne operators in Penn-
svlvania will have to bring this
long strike to an end or
throughout the countiy
the reason why. "
"This is the only way to end the
trouble. There is no uie in tempor
izing any longer with the mine op
erators of the East with - their no
tions of Divine rights and other rel
ics of monarchy. : What is needed
is decisive action. This will tpea
their eyes to the power and strength
of labor. It will do more, as it will
awaken -the people throughout the
country and Canada to the true
condition of things."
