London, Oct. 27. John O'Donnell
M. P., in a speech at Colne, Lanca
shire, Saturday night, denounced tho
sentences of himself and other mem
bers of parliament, under conditions
which prohibit their serving in public
bodies In Ireland for five years, ns a
scheme to prevent constitutional agi
tation. Mr. O'Donnell said he did not
regret the clash with Mr, Balfour In
the house of commons, October 16, on
acount of which he was suspended
from the house and declared he would

To Improve London's Port.
London, Oct. 27. The first step to
ward remedying the glaiing deficien
cies of the antiquated port of Lon
don was taken today when representa
tives of the dock companies, the ship
ping Interests and the city of London
assembled In conference at Mansion
House with Sir Joseph Dimsdale, ihe
Lord mayor, presiding. In the pre
liminary way the conference discuss
ed practfcable measures for the Im
provement ot the port, with the pur
pose of agreeing upon a plan to be
laid before tho government. Among
the various proposals was one for the
entire abandonment of the present
dock and wharf system, cn which the
rocent dock commission proposed to
expend $140,000,000, nnd the conver
sion of six or seven miles of the river
into a vast tidal dock, furnishing am
ple room for all kinds of .craft.
Washington, Oct. 27. The confer
ence of the strike commission open
ed in the room of the interstate com
merce commission at 2 o'clock. Th-j
coal operators and President Mitch
ell seated themselves on opposite
sides of the table. Assistant Record'
er Mosley shortly announced, "gen
tlemen, the commission." The oper
ators as well as Mitchell, all arose and
stood while the commission entered
Judge Gray briefly explained the
situation and said that he preferred
to regard the case as one in which
plaintiffs and defendants were pres
ent and that he would like to hear
President Mitchell said that as
plaintiff, he would be ready to pre
sent his testimony next Monday.
Judge Gray interrupted him and said:
"All we want is a logical statement
of one side and an answer by the
other, thus eliminating lrrelevent
matter. We don't want any argu
ments. " Mitchell then made a state
ment of a few hundied words. Pres
ident Baer, for the operators, follow
ed and said:
"We object to the presence of John
Mitchell as pres'.deut -f the l.'nlon
Mine Workers before this (.ommis
slon. In no wise will we deal with
that body as an organization, but we
have no objection to Mitchell's pres
ence as a representative of the coal
miners of the anthracite region."
Baer also announced that he would
urge as a solution of the labor prob
lem the adoption of a re-adjustment
of a sliding scale, which he called a
profit sharing system, that would
give practical peace in the mines foi
To Visit the Mines.
Mr. Baer also suggested personal
visits to the anthracite fields. Mr.
Thomas agreed. Truesdale wanted
an opportunity given to the miners
of certain mines to settle their diffi
culties with their- employers by a
conference of committees. If no
agreement was reached then, he was
willing that tho matter be submitted
to the arbitration commission. It was
agreed that the largest individual op
erators should also be called before
Judge Gray, on an agreement be
tween Baer and Mitchell, will ap
point an expert to take statements of
wages from both sides.
In Good Humor.
The men were all in singularly good
humor. When the suggestion was
made to the commission that it be
gin its inspection in the upper region
of the anthracite district, Baer said:
"I don't know anything about tho up
per region. All I now have a knowl
edge of is the lower region, accord
ing to general belief." Even Mitchell
and Fahy joined in the applause and
lauchter which followed this remark
Judge Gray, after consultation with
all parties, fixed Thursday as the day
when the inspection of the mining
fields would commence. Mr. Wilcox
volunteered a special train to take
all parties to Scranton, which will
be' the starting point. It Is expected
that it will require a week to visit
the mines. The commission adjourn
ed at i o'clock to meet next Thurs
To Pay Fares.
Immediately after adjournment the
commissioners retired In private con
sulfation. Later It was announced
that they had decided to pay their
own fares, declining tho offer of a
