the striking mlneworkers:
Reports received at our office from dis
tricts Nos 1, 7 and 9, of the anthracite
coal region, show thatthere have been
great accessions to the ra.nks of the strik
ers today. In district No. 9 (Hazleton re
gion), not less than 1600 mlneworkers who
mined yesterday failed to report for work

remaining atwork. Total number ofKmen

HAJRiRISBDRG.X Pa., Sept.- 18 Trouble
Is brewing tonight In the Lykens .Valley
region between- the union and nonunion
anthracite miners over the refusal of the
men at "Wflllamstown to join the strike.
The strikers in the neighboring 'towns of
Lykens and. "Wuconisco threaten to compel
the Wllllamstown men to quit work. A
meeting of the Wllllamstown men was
held tonight, at which it was decided to
stand firm against any attempt on the
part of the strikers to force them to join
the strike. - ,
Sheriff Relff tdday swore in 150 depu
ties, who will act In conjunction with a
double force of watchmen on duty ' at
Wllllamstown colliery. The Wllllamstown
colliery was In operation today with a
full complement of 1100 men and boys.
Rev. Father Logue, rector of the Cath
olic church at Wllllamstown, is. working
among the mine employes there to Induce
then to stay at work. Some of the strik
ers at Lykens and Wuconisco threaten
to drive outthe men at Wllllamstown be
fore Saturday, andr serious trouble may
be expected at any time. There has been
bad blood between the Lykens and Wu
conisco miners and the men at Williams
town ever since the refusal of the former,
In 18S4, to join the latter in their strike
against a reduction of wages. -

but he declined, saying that he would
see the 'people at' the 'Colutribi Gardens
In the -evening, when all Would have an
opportunity "to hear him dlsbhss the ques
tions of the day.
He spent a half hour In shaking hands
and found among the people here many
old-time acquaintances, spme ot jvhom
had roughed It with him In the Dakofas
Wrs ncro. Governor Roosevelt, with His
party, took dinner at(the Butte Hotel, and '
after the speech at Columbia Gardens- he
entered the special train, to which'-hls)
pur was attached for the night. The train '
will leave for Pocatello at 2 o'clock to

Columbia Gadens are situated five miles
from the city limits. Notwithstanding
tle great distance,, the Immense buildjng
was entirely filled and-standlng room, wad
at a discount Governor Roosevelt spoke
here for nearly three-quarters of an hour,
Th Oovflrnor's voice Is 'still Mn good
shape, and he seems to stand "thehard '
work of this four with tunf alllhg1Vigor.
Tho first' cart-, of Mr. Roose'velt's . re
marks, were deyotedvto aVhlstoryof his
experience in ina, KLattoiuiJ mm (iuumua
18 years ago, when' lie"" was uppn;vtbe
ranch. He also devoted avfew momertts
to discussion of the ice trust and Mavor
VanWyck's and, Mr. Crokerrs connection'
therewith, while tney were aeciaiming in
their public utterances against all trusts.
He then proceeded as-" follows: -
"Now, gentlemen, ! nave a rignc to
ask that you take our. promises, because,
in the past,-our promises have squared
with our performances, andI wish you.
to compare them' with our , opponents
prophecies and' see ' ttfe result. 'I, have
spoken to you, gentlemen, about preach
lnr. the uosoel of hate. The foulest
wrong that can be done to o'ur citizen-;
shiR Is done by the man who"6reaches .
that gospel. Whether he preaches to tne
employer to nee to It that the protection1
of hlsown Interests are against -the
interests of the employe, or whether he
seeks tocomblne employes and to set
them against their employers, It matters
not which. It Is wrong.
"Eight years ago, In the election of
1892, I wish to recall some experiences
which you remember. At that election an
effort was made not to try to sot the
West against the East,',or 'the North
against the South;' an effort was made
to set the workingman against the capi
talist, the wageworker against the man
who presented the wages. We were told
that the capltlalst had grown rich, that
tjie capitalist had prospered, and that we
should down him We got 'hlra down.
The country voted that way, We got tho
capitalist down Therev Is no quesetlon
about that. He was down all right, but
the trouble after that was that the rest
of us were down underneath him, too.
"There did not anybody enjoy the next
three years. The capitalists were ruined
and the wagework'er came to the verge
of starvation. It was' hard upon the men,
but It was a thousand fold harder upon
the women and children Fundamentally,
the doctrine , that we need here In this
land is that' while prosperity comes to us
unequally and adversity comes to us un
equally, yet when good times come, all
share somewhat In them, but when bad
times come, some suffer more than others,
but all suffer somewhat, all suffer. to
sopie extent. Our' Interests are bound "up
-with one another. In 1592 they voted down
the, capitalists and when they downed
him they found that they were worse
off than before. r That was the effect of
tbe-actlon of misguided men.
v"Now, gentlemen; the only way perira
nenily to secure well being in this coun
try' Is to secure conditions that will se
cure the well being of all Something
canbe done by legislation; much can be
done by associations of Individuals. But
In. the last resort, nothing-can take the
place of the man's natural and Individual
qualities. Every man of "us and every
man here will slip at times; will stumble
now and then. There Is not one of us
that does not at times need to have a
helping hand strecthed out to him, and
woe, to the man who does not reach out
his hand, to help the man who is -unfortunate."
But If he lies down, you may
make up ' your mind that you cannot
carry him. 'I would like to go on, and
I appeal" to you, for the sake of our
Internal welfare, for the sake of the
position of this Nation In the face of the
nations of the world, that you stand by
us in this contest.
"We stand at the threshold of a new
century. The generatlqn in the century
just closed has done a great work and
has laid the foundation of our Govern
ment upon a strong footing by the suc
pess of the Civil War. We have ..con
quered this Continent; we have estab
lished, a Government under which there
has been such prosperity, liberty and
power as thew"world has never before
seen. Now I appeal to you, the men who
made the West, and to you who glory In
your strength. In your courage and your
power, to see to It that the Nation does
not act as you would be ashamed to
see any Individual act; that the Nation
does not shirk the ioak4bafc-taaKheen.'
laid eut for it to perform; to see to it
tatthe Nation ribw. realizeis that when
Uptakes a position, in the foremost rank
of nations. it must be prepared to meet
and to overcome all the difficulties that
great powers are 3urev to meet. I would
ask you to support us'ln this contest, in
the first place, because In so doing you'
can preserve the condition? of material
prosperity and avert a panic of disaster
thafwould be more widespread and more
far-teachlng than, any which the country
has-ever known; and furthermore, be
cause, it has been given to us to be furnished--,
a "standard-bearer who has em

have led us ; forward to this position
amongthe nations of the, earth; who has
embodled'the broad". doctrine which has

respondence ) Perfect weather marked
the formal opening of Pendleton's Street
Fair and Harvest Carnival today. Queen
Bertha I (Miss Bertha Wells) was crowned
at the opera-house last night, and short
ly before noon today Mayor Vincent pre
sented her a huge key. and gave her the
freedom of the city. A parade that un
doubtedly excelled in conception and
quality the parade of the opening day
of the Portland Carnival was 'the event
of the morning. In the afternoon the
gates of the fair were thrown open, and
between 2000 and 2500 people passed
through them to view the wondrous array
of products which Umatilla County and
Pendleton manufacture, growr buy and
Pendleton, with a population of be
tween BO00 and 6000, has made a showing
of which the metropolis, with its 90,000
people and over, might well be proud.
The carnival represents an outlay,, 'n
cludlng the association's expenditures and
the cost of fitting up booths and Install
ing exhibits, of nearly $12,500.
Past and present were Intimately linked
In this carnival of prosperity In a county
where no man need be idle if he bo will
ing to work.
Twenty-two years ago, almost to a day
the paramountcy of the white race was
settled forever In Umatilla County. On
July 7,-1878, a handful of white settlers
fought with hostile Plutes and Ban
nocks at Willow Springs, 28 miles south
of Pendleton, the last battle In which
they were called upon, as civilians, to
defend their homes Set upon ere their
dinners had been finished, and so sudden
ly that many had to run long distances
to get their guns, so completely sur
rounded by hostiles that defeat was cer
tain If they remained, and ambushed
while In retreat, this little band of home
builders and home-defenders was hard
pressed when a relief force of United
States regulars under Major Throckmor
ton came up. Shortly after, the hostiles
were decisively defeated near Pendle
ton by the allied regulars and volunteers,
and the peace was concluded that has
endured to this day. The Fall of 1878
saw the ascendency of the white man se
cured In this vast region, and the ab
original inhabitants began- that decline
which, is the fate of aU Inferior races
when placed side by side In the race of
life with a superior force.
The Umatilla County of 22 years ago
was a county of sparse population, scant
production, isolation and of but recent
peace with the original occupants ot the
land. Today it Is the county of constantly
Increasing population, large agricultural
development, railroad connection with
the world and expansion In manufactur
ing Industry. The progress of the 23
years was best Illustrated by the con
trast of races afforded by today's gather
ing. Umatilla bucks and squaws, of all
ages, and In all manners, of dress from
lopsely. flowing blankets,, sombreros and
moccasins to modern American dress, Jos
tled each other to see and comment upon
the . handiwork of the conquering race,
and gaze with goggle eyes on a white
Queen riding In a horseless carriage.
Among the red-skinned spectators were
not a few bucks who. If not friendly to
the Bannocks and Plutes In 1878, secretly
desired to see them succeed. A conspic
uous figure In the procession that moved
'up and down the street past kiosks and
booths and Into the midway entertain
ment, was old Indian Charley, tever tho
friend of the whites, and on his breast
was pinned a McKlnley and Roosevelt
All Pendleton was astir at daybreak for
the greatest event in the city's- history.
Trains arriving as. early as 6 A. M.
brought crowds, and long before the sun
rose exhibitors were giving the final
touches to their booths. The parade made
a late start at 11.15. Headed by Grand
Marshal John Halley, Jr. It marched
through a few of the principal streets,
and then through the street occupied by
the fair, countermarching for review by
Queen Bertha. Behind the grand mar
shal marched the Seventh United States
Regiment Band of 23 pieces, headed by its
bandmaster, J. N. Home. Next followed
a carriage containing Mayor F. W. Vin
cent and Prime Minister C. J. Ferguson,
with W. P. Sturgis,. the court Jester, gor
geously bedecked, trotting beside on footj
Queen Bertha rode In an automobile, pro
peljed by J. L. Elam, behind which
marched many girls, dressed In bright
red, yellow and blue, and waving Ameri
can flags or carrying spears. Next camp
a float carrying" a girl dressed In repre
sentative National costume, followed by
the - exhibit of Daphne Circle, No. z.
Women of Woodcraft. Four members
of the order, dressed In blue waists, red
skirts, and white caps, with green bor
ders, rode bicycles beside a pretty floral
creation of circular form. Following
this was the exhibit of the Ladies Club,
of Pendleton, a child seated in a purple
decorated phaeton, and driving two gray
The Chinese division came next. A
Chinese carrying a. large American flag
headed about ICO of his countrymen, who
wore all manner of dress, from laundry
attire, to the uniform of Chinese regular
soldiers, and the rich garb of priests and
Chinese Masons. The ale was full of the
music of hautboys, tomtoms, tin. pans and
drums. Some of the Chinese, armed with
muskets or spears, looked all the world
like the pictures of the hideous Boxer
who besieged the Legatloners at Pekln.
It was beyond question the best Chinese
exhibit ever seen on the Pacific Coast.
The Pendleton Fire Department made an
especially good display. MascoU Hose
Company had a float bearing a house, out
of which real smoke Issued, and out of
the windows of which brownies reached
for ladders and looked longingly to the
ground for help. The Pendleton Band
headed the second division, the principal
feature of which wa3 a wagon-load ot
Pendleton juveniles, humorously labeled
"Pendletoa Products." District Attor
ney T. G. Hailey made this exhibit. Other
