while they may not be able to mine coal,
can load it. The bosces can do the min

The controversy between President
Mitchell and the Citizens Alliance is
growing in bitterness. The alliance made
replv todav to the letter published yes
terday by Mr. Mitchell. Stripped of some
of its personalities, the letter reads:
"Mr. Mitchell: You decline to say in be
half ot the union and yourself that you
condemn boycotting, rioting and violence
perpetrated to prevent men from workrrig.
Indeed, you leave the distinct and un
pleasant "impression that you do not con
demn these things. If you were sincere
in your protestation against the lawless
ness, you wukl not refuse, as you do re
fuse, to proclaim, as we request, your
positive, pointed and specific condemnation
of the worst type of lawlessness which
undertakes to prevent men from freely
working for whom they please and upon
such terms as they please; nor would you
pour vials of your wrath upon an organi
zation which we admit has no such fool
ish aim. as to suppress lawlessness on the
part of all who arc guilty of its commis

type of lawlessness which thrives upon
the fear of its victims to protest and of
civil authority to protect against its per
petration. "You are credited with haying said that
you 'deprecate lawlessness committed by
any one, and particularly by men on
strike.' which, stripped of its hypocrisy,
simply means that you object to lawbreak

The following official statement has been

QUIET DAY AT SHBXAXDOAH.
Rumors That Collieries "5VI11 Resume
Under Protection of Troops.
SHENANDOAH, Pa., Aug. 2.-Shenan-doah's
eventful week closed tonight with
out the slightest indication of disorder.
The town and surrounding country con
tinue to remain peaceful and no trouble
Is looked for hereabouts so long as the
troops are kept In this vicinity. There
were very few strangers in town today,
but tonight a large crowd of visitors
came into the place from outlying set
tlements, as it Is the custom inall min
ing towns Saturday nights. The throng
was an orderly one and gave the police
no trouble. Sheriff Beddell is apprehen
sive of an outbreak at several places.
Lart night unknown men threw stones
end rocks at the sentries of the Eighth
Regiment. Two of them were struck,
"But not Injured. A detail of troops made
a search for the men, but they escaped
In the darkness.
Many rumors are In circulation here
that attempts -will be made to start the
collieries under the protection of troops.
It was said by one of the officers at
headquarters that two collieries operated
by individual companies in the Hazleton
region will resume work Tuesday. This
cannot be confirmed. General Gobln said
today that he will send the Governor's
troop of cavalry off on long marches, be
ginning Monday. This Information
reached the troopors in camp, and it
was freely predicted by them that they
would be sent in tho direction of Hazle
ton. General Gobin will not say whero
ho will send them. The Mlneworkers of
ficials place no stock in the report of
an early resumption of work, and assert
these rumors are placed la circulation
by company officials for the purpose of
influencing the mlneworkers into break
ing the strike.
President Fahey, of this district, and
Notional Board Member Dougherty re
turned to Shamokln this evening. Mr.
Fahey, following Instructions from Pres
ident Mitchell, Is making every effort to
have the striking mlneworkers maintain

JUDGE KELLER'S LECTURE.
On Proper Behavior While "Injunc
tions Arc Pending:.
CHARLESTON, "W. Va Aug. 2. The
trial of John Richards and others, charged
with contempt of court, came to a close
today, and Judge Keller fixed August 12
as the date for argument. All the pris
oners were released on their own recog
nizances until that time. Before adjourn
ing court Judge Keller called the numer
ous defendants before him and delivered
a lecture on tho question of proper be
havior while Injunctions are pending.
Judge Keller made these points:
"Any man has the right at any time to
post a trespass notice upon hie property
and to require all persons to seek permis
sion before they go upon his property.
He does not need the aid of the court for
the purpose, as he Is master of his own
domain, and may post It with trespass
notices" at any time and it becomes a duty
to take notice of these trespass notices,
"Different conditions make a difference
in' the rights of all of us. A small assem
hlage of persons seeking peacefully and
peaceably to gain a lawful and righteous
end may do things which a large body
of men with ostensibly the ,same purpose
have no right tp do, for the reason that
that body of men may overawe and in
many Instances do 'overawe people who
have rights that must be respected. If 1
step up to one of ycu. and in a pleasant
and respectful way say, I wish you would
give me yournoney arid your watch it
ia not likely to terrorise you at alL If I
have men at my back and 1 say In the
same tone, 'I would like to haver your
money and watch,' the effect upon your
mind fs very different. It is -very different
although I may use words of conciliation;
I may not utter a single threat against
you, still the very fact of my having these
men at my back makes a different im
pression upon your mind."
Judge Keller then explained that his In
junction was designed simply to protect
the rights of the persons who deal red to
"The question," he continued, "and the
hard question for you men to solve and
for the court to. solve is as to what pre
cisely you may do at a given time without
violating the rights of those men who
desire to labor peacefully. Tho court says
In the Injunction that you shall not make
those men afraid; that you shall not In
timidate those men. Now at any time
that you meet these men In the ordinary
course you have the right to persuade
them to join your union a perfect right.
And if you can show to them that it is
to their interest to Join your union, why.
do it. You have no right in any way 'to
make those people to think your way be
cause they do not quite think it'safe to
"Now tho point of the nearess. There
is- no line; the injunction lays down no
line, but It says you must not get closo
enough and act in a body of men in such
aVay as to intimidate or interfere with
those people who desire to work. In other
words, you munt not make them afraid.
You must not do things that will cause
them to fear the consequences, to leave
their work, or to be deterred from doing
their duty ati they may see it."
Judge Keller concluded his talk as- fol
lows: "I hope that you will take all I
have said in the 'ery kindly spirit In
which it is intended, and that you will try
intelligently not to put yourselves In the
attitude of contemptuous disobedience of
the orders of the court."
Necessary to Strike.
PITTSBURG, Kan.. Aug. 2. President
George S. Richardson, of the miners' or
ganization in the Kansas district, tonight
stated that tho minera of Kansas, Mis
souri. Arkansas and Indian Territory
would go on a strike September 1. The
recent interstate Conference hero decided
to postpone a strike until next year. Since
that time, however, developments make It
necessary to strike in order to enforce a
recognition of the union from certain
companies. The miners have little hope
of securing a contract here, and In case
they do .not, all four districts will stand
together In the fight.
LONDON, Aug. 2. New preparations
for the coronation of King Edward next
Saturday are proceeding rather mechani

barriers and the cleansing and decorat

Public interest in the actual proceedings,
however. Is rekindled by official assur
ance that the King is getting on finely
and that His Majesty will be able to bear
the fatigue of being crowned. The pub

ing their boycott on a Kansas City cloth

CENSORSHIP IN RUSSIA.
Systexnatlo Terrorizing of the
ST. PETERSBURG. July 18. (Corre
spondence of the Associated Press.) Pro
gressive terrorizing of the Russian press,
which characterized tho regime of M.
Zlpyagln, the Minister of the Interior,
who was assassinated last April, appears
to have been adopted as the settled policy
of his successor. M. von Flehve. M.
Zlpyagln closed the Northern Courier and
the Rossya. After their extinction the
only newspaper which maintained an In
dependent attitude towards tho govern
ment was the St Petersburg Viedomosti,
an old journal which since it passed into
the control of Prince Oukhtomsky has
been characterized by the honorable and
straightforward manner in which It was
That It was not a liberal newspaper
according to Western notions need scarce
ly to be emphasized. A liberal newspaper
Is absolutely impossible where the censor
ship is as vigilant and exacting .as It is
in Russia. Owing to the impossibility
of expressing its own views on either
domestic or foreign affairs, consistently
and regularly, the Viedomosti abstained
except bn rare occasions from any com
ment whatever. Its original news articles
wero also couched in tho moat guarded
and matter-of-fact linguago and wa3
based on official data.
It must be explained that outside of St.
Petersburg and Moscow, the daily press
is subjected to preliminary censorship;
that is, no article may bo published which
has not been sanctioned by a govern
mental official assigned especially to re
view its matters. Tho press of the two
capitals is free from this burden, but
may bo and is called to a strict account
ing by th censorship for any matter that
may be found objectionable, but it is regu
larly warned against handling such sub
jects at all. It is also a fact that own
ers ot newspapers under preliminary cen
sorship can be and are severely dealt with,
and the papers can be suppressed for pub
lishing matter that has been sanctioned
by their particular censor. In spite of
this censorship, the St. Petersburg Vie
domosti always has been characterized by
its. Interesting excerpts from the provin
cial newspapers. It alone, of all the St.
Petersburg newspapers, has attempted to
keep Jts readers Informed about what was
going on in the Interior of Russia.
It now appears that this department of
the Viedomosti has became- an eyesore
to the government. Minister von Plehve
summoned Prince Oukhtomsky to him
July 12, and lectured him severely on his
management ot the Journal, which is
.leased from tho government. M. "von
Plehve told the Princo the Viedomosti
had become tho organ of the Liberals
and revolutionists, particularly in its pro
vincial departments. He peremptorily de
manded the immediate dismissal of the
editor of this paper and warned him that
after two months his lease of tho paper,
which had several years yet to run. Would
be canceled. M. von Plehvo concluded
by saying ho had seen the Czar on July
9 and had received His Majesty's permis
sion to tako these severe measures.
Prince Oukhtomsky has long enjoyed a
measure of Imperial favor. After he ac
companied the Czar, when heir apparent,
on the Prince's famous tour around the
world, ho was made president of the
Russo-Chinese Bank, and his unrivaled
knowledge of China and Chinese affairs
has certainly been of great advantage to
tho government. It Is generally under
stood that heretofore when pressed or
threatened by the late Minister Zlpyagln,
Prince Oukhtomsky has been able to save
himself by a personal appeal to the Czar.
M. Stakhovich. who is Marshal of the
Nobility of Orel, was re-elected to this
position almost immediately after his fa
mous speech last year on religious lltn
crty, and his election was confirmed. He
has recently been active in a movement
to procure the participation of the Zcmst-
vos or provincial self-government delegate
assemblies in the great agricultural in
quiry. He recently held a conference at
Moscow with a number of Zemstvos lead
ers from different provinces, and for this
he was summoned before Minister von
Plehve and reprimanded In the presence
of tho head of tho Police Department.
The government Is extremely Jealous of
anything approaching concerted action on
the part of the Zemtsvos, fearing that it
might result in some form of representa
tive government for tho whole country.
M. Stakhovich took the reprimand In
poor grace. He called the Minister's at
tention to the fact that he is an elective
representative of the nobility of the Prov
ince of Orel, and responsible legally to
nobody save the Emperor personally. He
declared that he did not recognize the
Minister's right to harangue him about his
conduct, and that he did not accept the
reprimand. He then stalked out of the
BATTLE OF AGUA DULCE
Result of Engagement Still Un
known at Panama.
PANAMA, Colombia, Aug. 2. Since
yesterday, the battle at Agua Dulcc has
been the sole topic of conversation here.
Both Liberals and Conservatives anxi
ously await tho result of the engage
ment, which will go Into history as one
of the boodlest ever fought in Colom
bia. General Morales Berti is among the
bravest and moat experienced Generals
of the Conservatives. He has from OOCO
to 3500 fine soldiers and his forces are
strongly intrenched. General Herrera Is
undoubtedly the best military leader the
revolutionists have. It Is believed, he has
4000 men, but the terrific charges upon
the intrenchments by his troops prove
that they are daringly valiant.
The result of the battle at Agua Dulce
cannot be predicted, but all agree that
if General Herrera wins, the scene will
be repeated here, for General Salazar.
Governor of Panama, has 003 men strong
ly Intrenched and says he will fight as
long as his ammunition and soldiers
last. A "government victory at Agua

Talking at 40 Pounds a Minute.
Few people would avail themselves of
the luxury of talking at a cost of "10 a
minute, however exalted the person they
wished to interview might be. but this
amount has been paid before now for a
short chat with some celebrity whose
opinion on a matter of moment haa been
of tho greatest value to the paper by
which it was published.
The Khedlvo has only onco been inter
viewed by a professional Journalist, and
that occurred during an Egyptian crisis
a few ycirs back. The lUcky follower of
the notebook who accomplished this feat
was with his Serene Highness exactly half
an hour, and his. account of what trans
pired filled two columns of the Pall Mall
Gazette. For this Mr. Astor paid 1200.
which worked out at tho handsome rate
of 10 shillings a word or 40 for every
minute the Khedive was talking.
The enterprise of foreign pressmen Is
amazing, and the German newspaper
which secured an'authentlc account from
Osmon Pasha's Hps of how the fall df
Plevna Came about hid to pay its repre
sentative well for his trouble. The Jour
nalist in question was serving' wltli the
Czar's forces as a correspondent, and
upon the great soldier being taken pris
oner he disguised himself as a Russian
officer and was successful in Interviewing
him ot course, in the presence of his
captors. The conversation lasted two
hours, and the Journalist received 1400
plus expensed, this being the highest price
ever paid for an interview.
Von Moltke was always proof against
the wiles of the Interviewer, and Just be
fore the outbreak of the Franco-Prussian
War a journalist attached to a Berlin pa
per was promised 1000 If he succeeded
in interviewing him. He managed to
worm his way Into the General's pres
ence, but when he asked his opinion on
the outlook, Moltke replied: "An excel
lent season for beans, but we could do
with some more rain!" Bismarck was
equally cautious until after his quarrel
with the Emperor, whereupon he confid
ed his grievances to a journalist, who
netted 1200 for simply Jotting 'down his
remarks on paper. Tho conversation was
only of an hour's duration, so the lucky
pressman was paid at the rate of 20 a
Its Progress In the Semi-Arid Belt
of Late Years.
Review of Reviews.
The cattlemen have for years Insisted
that the soli was too barren and the cli
mate too dry for agriculture and in a
sense and over a large portion of the
Southwest they were right. But today
different theories are exploited. More
modern plans, are followed. The farmer In
the semi-arid section today does not seek
to raise wheat and corn for market he
sends the product of his farm to market
In cattle, sheep and hogs. He tills the
valleys and pastures the uplands. Alfalfa
sends Its roots 20 feet Into tho soil and
produces three crops of hay a season. On
it stock can be fattened, nnd, with stacks
of it in reserve, the blizzards of Winter
have no terrors. The stock runs out In
the open the year round. The farmer and
his eons raise enough feed to put the cat
tle In prime condition and to fatten the
hogs the increase of the herds makes
riches. Kaffir corn grows in the semi-arid
belt and gives a certain crop. In a mod
erately wet year it gives great yields. In
dry years It Is fairly rich In return. Both
these crops were unknown to Western
farmers a. few years ago. Along the Ar
kansas River, In Colorado, sugar beets are
being produced in vast quantities on land
that was half a decade since barren prai
rie. Two $800,000 sugar mills are now in
Cotton fields are whitening farther West
each year lh Texas. The back country
cotton gins are crude, but they give the
farmers a market. Better and more mod
ern structures will take their places. The
creamery, something never known before
in the Southwest, is'paylng cash for milk.
