-MYRTLE PARKER ABDUCTED.
Taken to Medford and Placed on Train
Bound for Portland Dell
Ashland, Nov. 'i. A decided sensa
tion has been created in Ashland during
the past few days by the disappearance
and what is claimed to have been theJ
abduction of Myrtle Parker, the 17-year-old
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Squire
Parker, well known residents of this
section. The girl who is well developed
for hep years, and who is of a somewhat
retiring disposition, left her home
Thursday night, and has been traced to
Portland, where her father now is in
search of her, with one Dell Combs, a
young man 25 years of age, who is con
nected with her disappearance.
It turns out that Combs and the
young girl have been in each others
company quite frequently of late and
developments show that he left Ashland
with her in a buggy, Thursday night, at
about 10 o'clock, and together they
drove to Medford, where they put up at
the Nash hotel until the arrival of the
early morning north bound" train.
Then the girl secured a ticket and took
passage for Portland.
Combs rv'turned to Ashland Friday
morning and in order to cover his tracls
and the object of lus night trip, he
sought out Chief of Police Smith and
told that officer an uncommonly long
fishy story of a strange man having
forced him at the point of a pistol to
drive him down to Medford and who
held him Combs there until nearly
break of day. Chief of Police Smith
and a number of local Hawkshaws and
Sherlock llolmeses went to work and
chased the story down, and as soon as
Combs' romance was current about
town investigation traced the disap
pearance of Myrtle Parker to him. Mr.
Tarker, the father of Myrtle, immedi
ately went to Medford and learned that
a .couple answering the description given
of Combs and the girl Lad been there
Thursday night and of their goings
on w hile there. Mr. Parker . then
returned to Ashland and confronted
Combs with the facts he had learned
but the young man stoutly and vigorous
ly denied them.
Farker, not to be trifled with, then
forced Combs to gojo Medford for the
purpose of identification. Yesterday af
ternoon, in company with the irate
father, a brother and uncle of the girl,
Combs was taken to Medford where he
was fully identified by ho.ekpeople' and
the livery stable man who had cared for
his team, as having been in Medford
Thursday night with Myrtle Parker.
The sweating process he had been pst
through on the trip to Medford yester
day and the identification proved too
strong for him and Combs broke down,
confessed his guilt and consented to go
to Portland with Mr. Parker on last
ee!iing's train and find Myrtle, w hom
ie said he had told to pi to the St.
Charles hotel, . where he would fallow
her by the train which left Ashland to
day. le also expressed a desire and a
willingness, it is said, to endeavor to as
far :.s jo-sib'.e, amend the wrong he
had been guilty of.

Hazleton-, Pa., Nov. 4. The state
ment of the anthracite mineworkers'
case, which was filed with the Strike
Commission on Sunday night, was made
public today. Copies of the statment
hsve been furnished to the ojerators,
who will reply in three or four days.
The miners' statement in fidl is as

tors tho following demands, w hich were
formulated by the Shamokin convention,
held March 19-21, and for the enforce
ment of which tho strike was inaugu
rated : !
INCREASE- OF WAGES. !
"First An increase of 20 jut cent
upon the prices ult during the year'
1901 to employes performing contract or
piecework. This demand is made on
account of the iolloning reasons:
'I. The present rale of wages is
much lower than the rate of wages paid
in the bituminous coal field for sub
stantially similar work.
'2. The present rate of wages is
lower than is paid in other occupations
requiring equal skill and training.
'3. The average annual earnings in
the anthracite coal fields are much less
than the average annual earnings in the
hitumiuous coal fields for substantially
'4. The average annnal earnings in
the anthracite coal fields are much le.-s
than the average annual earnings for
occupations leqmnug equal skill and
'3. The rate of wages in the anthra
cite coal fields is insufficient tocompen-'
sate the mineworkers, in view of the
dangerous character ef the occnjation
in relation to accidents, the liability to
serious and permanent disablement;
the high death rate and the short-grade
life incident to this emidorment.
'ti. The annua! earning of the mine-!
workers are insufficient to maintain the
American standard vf lhi:is.
"7. The increased ot of living has
made iLiii: possible t- maintain a lair
standard of 1 fe upon the basis of pres
ent wa.es aL 1 Las not on!v prevented
he mineworkers from securing any
benefit from increased prisjerity, but
has made their condition poorer on
account o! it.
'S. The wages d the anthracite
mmeworKers are so low tliat their
children arc permanently forced into
the breakers and mills, instead of being
upported and educated upon the earn
ings of their parents.
;0. Wages "are telow the fair and
just earnings of mineworkers in this
"."-'econd A reduction 20 per cent
in hours of labor without any reduction
of earnings for all employes paid by the
hour, day or week. TheVecond demand
is similar to the first, in that it is de
signed to increase the hourlv rate of
wages of mineworkers employed by the
hour, day or week, and all the reasons
applicable to the first demand are'asked
to be applied to the second n kk .repe

FAIK MEASUREMENT Of LABOR.
"Third The adoption of a system by
which coal shall lie weights! mid pai l
for by weight wherever practicable; the
minimum rate ier ton to le 00 cents for
a Ieg:il ton of 2240 louuds ; the different
La'.a r.o jr t"'ii:ig at the various mines t
be maintained. This demand is mad
on account of the following reasons:
"1. Measurement by the legal ton
whereter practicable is the only honest
an J just system of measuring the earn
ing of mineworkers.
"2. AVhcii the operators sell or trans
port coal it is on the bas'u of a legal ton
of 22J0 pound.
The extfvsdve ton was rigina'.bv
intended to romjensate the o-rat'M
for the weight f small sizes of cot-1
which were thcu discarded, but wi.ic j
are now utilized and sold, and therefore
there is no present neee-nity for the ne
of any other than the legal ton.
"4. The adoption .f this syslet.i
would remove an incentive bdh to the
operator Jand the worker of cheating
and d-shonesty and would allay jeulouiy
among the miners and prevent unjnM
discrimination and favoritism.
"5. The change of the, prvseil
system to t'.e one asked for would prote
a stroiig factor in al.aviug suspicion an I
discontent among the unneworkers.

and the conditions of employment which
shall obtain, together with satisfactory
methods for the adjustment of griev
ances wtucn nray aru-e Irom tune W'
time, to the end that strikes and lock
outs may be unnecessary. In suppo-t
of this demand we submit the follow ii g
"1. Tlie anthracite ndneworke s

sign individual agreements, but should
have right to" form such organitatic n
and choose such veut and ullicvm ifs
they desire to act collectively instead -A
individually when they deem that their
best interests are subserved thereby.
?. Agreements between i mployers
and employes through workingmen's
organizations are the ordinary inellxd
of regulating prixlurtiou and wages n
the bituminous coal field and in oti.'r
large industries aud are beneficial, suc
cessful and in keeping with the times.
"3. Unions of workingroen tend to
tlc better discipline of the men and to
the improvement of their physicl.1,
moral and mental condition and to the
preservation of friendly relations by
employer and employe.
"4. Experience shows that the trade
agreement is the only effective meth-xl
by which it is possible to'regulate nus
lions arising between employer ami
employes in large districts and that a
trade agreement is the only ossil.le
way to establish the relations between
the employer and the wagemaker in the
anthracite fields on a just, permanent
basis and as far as possible to do away
with any causes for the recurrence of
such differences as those you (the An
thracite Coal Strike Commission) have
been called in to settle.

Opposes Pauper Immigration.
Pauper immigration is to be opposed
by the president, wh , in his next mee-
sage t congress, is expected to make
urgent recommendation for mora strin
gent laws to keep out the scum ' ol
Europe. The evil influence upon Amer.
iean life of the hordes of peasants will
! emphasized. The president will nse
recent statistics of the immigration bu
reau to strengthen his argument.
Last mouth there were 7,C5" immi
grants conirod with 51,818 in tlte same
month last year, an increase of 15,S59.
Of this total 12.tKS came from Aastria-
Iluognry, an increase of 1,924 for the
month. Italy, including Sicity and Sar
dinia, sent ll,719whick i 4,2. more
than came from there in September of
last year. From Finland and other
parts of the Russian Empire there came
10,232, an increase d 3.431 for the
month. Roumania sent 1.21S, an in
crease of diy; Sweden, 5,S1;, an increase
of 2,215; Greece, 912, an increase of C12
and Turkey, Wid, an increase of 128.
These seven European countries thus
furnished 41,1'Sl of the immigrants who
arrived last mouth, or about tliree-
fourths of the w hole. It is believed that
the reason for the rnsh of these people
to get into the United States in the fear
that restriction will be made in the near
future which will render it difficult for
them to enter the "promised land."
