Pittsburg, Pa., March 28. It Is gen
erally rumored here that' Miss Virginia
Lee,. Andrew Carnegie's "prettiest girl,
in the world," Is already engaged to be
married not to one. of the thousands
who " proposed ; to her when Carnegie
first tendered ffla compliment, but to I
humble clerk with whom she has been
"going" for some time. Miss Lea will
not say yes or no to the Interviewers.
She's Certainly Boania,
'Little. Miss Xee, With her Chestnut
hair, blue eyes and graceful figure, may
not be a "raving beauty " but "bonnie"
she is surely. Hers .Is the Scotch type
of pulchritude: "a bonnie lassie" she
would be in Edinburgh " or Glasgow;
gallants would throng around her at
any Caledonian ball on this side of the
water.- s .
,, 6o It is not strange that the contour
of her face greatly resembles that of
a certain philanthropist who arrived In
this country with a few shillings' "in
his pocket and Who possesses a few
hundred millions of dollars now,; You
could not walk, a block along a street
In Dunfermline without meeting a girl
whose face Is shaped like Miss Lee's;
Fifeshlre is full of faces of this shape.
In a word, the Laird of Sklbo sees a
face of this shape every time he ties
his cravat, every time he shaves, if he
haves -himself. -"'- ' ' '
- Embarrassing for tha Beauty.
Whether or not Miss Virginia Is the
prettiest girl In the world, Mr. Car
negie owes her some amends. , For
hle-admiration of her, sincere as It is,
has been too, too public
Miss VIrgtnla'S father, T." B. Lee, an
engineer, met Mr. Carnegie at Hot
Springs, Ark. Mr. Lee thanked Mr.
Carnetria for the opportunities for an
education - Miss Virginia had found at
the Margaret Morrison . Technical
schools here named after Mr. Car
negie's mother. The Ironmaster asked
for Miss ' Virginia's photograph, and
then remarked to a reporter;
"If I were not married I would board
the, first train for Pittsburg."
Up to that ' moment Miss Virginia
had been going- ; quietly , about her
business, which Is taking shorthand

London, March 2$. With the early
voting in tha districts affected by the
great coal strike indicating that a ma
jority of the men favor returning to the
oollleries, all England Is rejoicing to
day, confidently, expecting that a mil
lion or more miners will have returned
to work by Easter.
If settlement comes the credit will
be due to J. R. MacDonald, leader of
the Conservative laborttes. who yester
day attended a "meeting of the Miners'
Federation and pleaded with the men to
accept the minimum wage bill as It
stands, leaving it to parliament to in
sert a minimum wsge of five shillings
to adults and two for minors In event
of the district board's failing to agree
on this stipulation. It is generally be
lieved that the worst of the trouble Is
now over,- but prices of coal and food
continue to rise and municipal and
charitable organizations are taxed to
the limit to care for the penniless.
-The question on .which the miners are
otlng reads as follows:
"Are you in favor of resuming work
pending the settlement of tha miners'
rates of wages In the various grades by
the district boards, to be appointed
