Prevent Strikers From Interfering
With Men Who Want to Work.
Now York, Oct, 10. An attempt to
force a settlement of the strlko is be'
ing made today. Strong pressure is
being brought to bear upon the oper
ators. The latter admit tho pressure,
but say they cannot bo forced by po
Htical or other forces to surrender
The conference of yesterday left an
ill feeling between the participants.
As a result, Quay, Penrose nnd Odell
went direct to Morgan this morning
and were clobeted with tho financier
for an hour aud a half. Tho senators
then returned to Piatt's office, leav
ing Odell with Morgan.
Governor Odell left after a short
time and was followed by tho finan
clcr, who told tho newspaper men ho
had nothing to say, and for them to
mind their own business. Odell went
to Piatt's office immediately.
The common belief on Wall street
is that Governor Odell has threatened
to call an extra session of the 'legls
lature and seize and operate tho coal
mines by right of eminent domain.
Morgan Is apparently very angry
Coal Presidents Arrive.
President Baer arrived at Senator
Piatt's office at noon and was shortly
afterward followed by President

brokers swarmed In tho hallways and
on tho pavements.
The conference ended at 1:10. No
formal statement has been Issued but
Odell and Piatt said an adjournment
was taken until next Tuesday and
nothing definite had been decided up
on. Wall street says Morgan told Odell
that ho could not Interfere, as ho had
given his promise to keep his hands
off. Morgan said, however, that ho
would put no bars In the way of a con
ference with the operators.
Senators Quay and Ponrose expect
to return to Philadelphia this after
noon. Oppose Sympathetic Strike.
President 'Mitchell remains at tho
Ashland House, but is constantly ap
prised of conference doings by his
agents. Regarding the Denver offer
of Western miners to go on sympa
thetic strike, he said this morning he
had corresponded with them on tho
subject, but as most union miners in
the AVest and Northwest quartz and
coal men are in the minority, and lioj
had not reached a conclusion. The
general tenor of his remarks leads to
the belief that ho will not accept the
Charge of Conspiracy.
