STRIKE IS ENDED
BOTH SIDES AGREE TO ARBI
Labor Leaders WereDistrustful and
Operators Yielded in .Make-Up
of Board Plans for
Washington, Oct. i5. It is understood
that at the conference with the president,
Mitchell's main objection to the accept
ance of the proposition of the operators
was the limitations placed upon President'
Roosevelt in the matter of the selection
of the arbitration commission. He was
especially opposed to the restriction limf
iting the selection of a Federal judge to a
particular jurisdiction. It is understood
that the miners are willing to waive the
technical recognition of the union, as they
will get a recognition of the union of the
general situation that exists in the an
It is considered likely that the propo
sition will go back to the operators with
a request that the restrictions in the ap
pointment of a commission be withdrawn
jn order that the president may have a
tree band in choosing the commission
ers. . . , .. .
Portland, Oct. 15 The Evening Tele
gram says: The proposition of the coal
operators to agree to submit the disputes
between themselves and their employes
to a commission to be appointed by Pres
ident Roosevelt, as announced in today's
dispatches, is looked upon with suspicion.
hot. to say with disfavor, by members of
the local organizations. They think it is
a shrewd 'move to gain the favor of the
public, and to induce the miners to re
turn to work, pending the report of the
commission, which it is said, will be de
layed indefinitely. ' ,
G. Y.' Harry, president of the Oregon
State Federation of Labor, expressed the
belief that President Mitchell, of the
mineworkers, would refuse' to entertain
the proposition in its present form. He
said: . . "
"There is not a: single representative
of the labor unions provided for in ap-
pbiming the commission: The mineown-
ers have practically dictated whom they
wanted to serve and made the carrying
out of the arbitraiion idea dependent up
on those suggestions.' Then again, the
commission may not be ready to make
their report for months. A navy officer,
for instance, may be suddenly called a
way and they would have to wait for his
return. Then the principal point of con
tention in the whole controversy, the re
cognition of the union, is sidetracked en
tirely; . They say that each district or
colliery shall settle its own differences in
its own way, which is an attempt to
break the solidity of.the forces. It looks
to me as if it were a move to get the men
back to work until after election.
"To my way of thinking, the operators
have another object in view. They are
getting alarmed at the turn of public o
pinion in favor of the miners. They see
that the country has become electrified
with the spirit of giving great amounts of
money for the benefit of the strikers.
They must if possible, stop this wave of
financial assistance which has set in from
the furthermost parts of " the United
States, and the best way in which to ac
complish this purpose is to agree to the
appointment of the commission. If the
president follows the suggestions of the
operators as outlined, , the commission
will be handicapped fr6m the start.- If
the mineworkers refuse to consent to the
proposed plan, then they will attempt to
shift the blame onto the shoulders of the
strike leaders. I do not believe Presi
dent Mitchell will agree to it in its pres
. , Although the strike condition has tak
en on a somewhat different phase today,
the plans for raising money for the7 as
sistance of the miners, already under
way, will be carried out in the main.
George Lv Baker has promised to give a
six-nighls benefit in Baker's Theater,
commencing next wek. The contribu
tions will be made Jointly by himself
and the Neill Stock Company. The
members of the labor ' unions are to
sell tickets.' Mr. Baker was asked today
if he would give the benefit just the same
if the strike should be declared off -in the
"They need the money, don't they ?
well the show will go on just as advertis
ed," said he. : - - ,
The committee of presidents, appoint
ed to canvass the citizens, met last night
and divided the city into districts. Each
member is to be supplied with a card,
bearing the endorsement of President
George H. Howell and Secretary H. G.
Kundret. This committee may not con
tinue to solicit subscriptions if the strike
is settled. The labor ' unions, however,
will not stop, but will make donations
right along to help those in distress. The
Portland Trades council , test night ar
ranged to give i00.
A mass meeting of citizens is being ar
ranged for. Mayor Williams, Governor
elect Chamberlain and Sti.te Senator

A Typical South African Store.
O. R. Larson, of Bay Villa, Sundays
Riverr, Cape Colony, conducts a
store typical of South Africa, at
which can be . purchased anything
from the proverbial "needle to an
anchor." This store is situated in
a valley nine miles from the near
est railway station and about twenty-five
miles irom the nearest town.
Mr. Larson says: "I am favored
with the custom of farmers within
a radius of thirty miles, to many of
whom I have supplied Chamber
lain's remedies. All testify to their
value in a household where a doc
tor's advice is almost out . of the
question. Within one mile of my
store the population is perhaps six
ty. Of these, within the past i2
months, no less than fourteen have
been absolutely cured by Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy. This must
surely be a record." For sale by

. Washington, Oct. 16. The great an
thracite coal, strike is settled at last. A
commission of six persons, with a sev
enth Carroll D. Wright as recorder.
will adjust the differences betwean the
operators and the miners. . President
Mitchell, of the Miners' Union, will take
the necessary measures to call the strike
off. The president will urge immediate
resumption of mining, and the operators
are expected to begin next week.
Announcement that the great strike
was off was made by Secretary Root with
exuberant good humor at the White
House shortly after I o'clock this morn
ing. Organized labor lias a representa
tive on the commission in the person of
33. E. Clark, grand chief of the Order of
Railroad Conductors, as a sociologist.
The president added Bishop Spalding, of
Illinois, to the. list of five members sug
gested by the operators. As named, the
commission is perfectly satisfactory to
both miners and operators. Assent, of
the miners was given through President
Mitchell and Mr. Sargent, Commissioner
of Immigration, and of the operators
through Messrs. Robert Bacan and Geo.
W. Perkins, of the Banking firm of T. P.
Morgan & Co.

What do you mean by politicians?

and to relieve if possible, an intol
erable situation. And what is more,
I intend toise every power at my
command to do it."
Governor Odell made this state
ment today to President Baer, of
the Reading Railroad in the pres
ence of United States Senator Piatt,
of New York, and Quay and Pen
rose, of Pennsylvania. It was the
the culmination of an acrimonious
interview in the office of Senator
Piatt, and the result of the meeting
dent Baer. '
Mr. Baer was not in the best of
humor when, accompanied by E. B.
Thoma9, chairman of the board of
directors of the Brie Railroad, he
entered Senator Piatt's office. The
conference began by a statement
made by Sentor Piatt that the situ
ation was becoming so serious that
som6 solution must be found at
once. He suggested that the oper
ators should incline to some con
cessions toward a settlement.
"If you mean by that," said
President Baer, "that we are to re
cognize the existence of a labor un
ion, I tell you right now that the
operators will consider no such
Governor Odell was on his feet in
an instant. Holding a half-burnt
cigar in his hand, and white with
excitement, he said:
"Are we to understand that no
kind of conciliatory proposition
would receive attention at the
hands of the operators?"
"Ididnotsay that," answered Mr
Baer, "but I do say that we will
not accept political advice or allow
the interference of politicians in
this our affair."
Then it was that Governor Odell
made the statement attributed to
him at the beginning of this article.
President Baer, evidently appre
ciating that he had gone too far,
bowed to Governor Odell, and said:
"Governor, I beg your pardoni
No personal affront was intended,
and we will listen to any sugges
tions you may haveto make; nut,
again, I repeat that we must refuse
to recognize the union represented
by Mr. Mitchell."
"I believe," said the governor,
"that your position," from a public
view, is absolutely untenable. If
coal operators, railroad men and
other business men can combine
for mutual profit and protection
there is no, reason why laboring
men should not."
VWbat is the proposition?" ask
ed Mr. Baer, coldly.
"Just this," said Governor Odell.
"I am sure that the labor organiza
tion of which Mr Mitchell is . head
desires him to be fair with the gen
eral public. If the operators will
consent to give tne men o cents a
ton increase, I will personally pre
sent it. to the miners, and I believe
they will accept it. It is a fair
"Does this mean, Governor Odell,
that we are to recognize the min
ers' union?" said Mr. Baer.
"It certainly does," answered
Governor Odell, quickly, "and there
is no reason why you should not."
Air. uaer ana ivir. 1 nomas rose
to go, Mr. Thomas remarking that
the matter would be presented to
the other operators and that an
early answer would be forthcoming.
"We are to meet a committee of
the Manufacturers' Association on
Tuesday, and we may have an an
swer then," said Mr. Baer.
The conference then broke up,
Mr. Baer and Mr. Thomas, with
drawing. Senators Piatt,- Penrose
and Quay talked over the matter
for a short time, and then separat
ed, the two Pensylvanians announc
ing that they would go back to Har
risburg and discuss the situation
with Governor Stone.
Governor Odell was not in a talk

ence, tie went oirectiy to the

About 5 o'clock John Mitchell,
accompanied by M. L. Hammer
ling, of Willkesbarre, called, and
had a long conference. -While tbia
was going on a dispatch announcing
that the operators refused to consid
er the terms offered by the gover-
iuui was icucivcu.
When the conference was over
Governor Odell refused to say whtt
had occurred, and Mr. Mitchell was
equally reticent. It is believed that
Governor Odell presented bis prop-
osition for settlement to the leader
of the miners' union, and that Mr.
Mitchell said he would present it to
the district presidents in the hope
that it would be accepted. Gover .
nor Odel said: "Mr. Mitchell waa
eminently fair, and showed every
disposition to adjust the serious sit
uation." ' : :
With the announcement that all
the conferees except Governor Odell
had left town, some of the interest
in the matter had dropped. Gov
ernor Odell at a late hour was ask
ed if he had determined on any
further move. He said:
"I have not received any official
notice of the rejection of our propo
"Has it been suggested that you
call an extra session of the legisla
ture?" was asked.
"I have not thought of it yet. As
I said, I am waiting for an answer
from the operators."
The governor said tonight that he
would go to Newburgh tomorrow to
register and return on Monday
morning. Then he said he would
again take up the matter actively
if no decision was arrived at by the
miners and operators. He posi
tively declined to talk further for
His Life in Peril.
"I just seemod to have gona all

Welfare, Tex., "biliousness and a
lame back had made life a burden.

Mr. Thomas said: "This state
