Scranton, Ta., Oct. 16I In response
to a request for a statement as to his
views on the answer of the United
Mineworkers to the operators' proposi
tion, T. H. Watkins, president of the
Temple Iron Company, which company
is largely interested in coal mining, to
night gave out a somewhat lengthy
statement, in which he says in part:
"We will give our men reasonable
time to return to work, trusting they
will see the mistake of being guided
and influenced by men who, however
honest and sincere they may be in their
efforts to benefit the miners of the an
thracite region, are unable to advise
them intelligently and for their best
"Mr. Mitchell apparently thinks that
the ccntrol of the mining operations
rests in the hands of one or two per
sons, notably Mr. Morgan, or that there
is a trust of some sort which can de
cide the whole question, when, as a
matter of faot, there are only three or
four of the transportation companies in
which any one concerned has any in
fluence, and thev do not represent 30
per cent of the whole anthracite ton
nage. More than 100 different com
panies and individuals are interested
in mining the total tonnRge, and no
one man can control Or have the slight
est influence over their action.
"One thing the companies are ap
parently agreed upon is that they will
not agree. Efforts have been made for
years to get some plan to which all
could agree to control the tonnage, so
that fair prices could be secured for a
product which requires so large all
investment of money with such great
risk to the labor employed, as well aB
the capital employed, but effort after
effort has tailed through failure to
agree on a plan that would not violate
the laws and to which all could agree.
"But Mr. Mitchell comes here and
says in effe t that no mineworkers
shall go to work until every operator
does just exacity what the' other does
and that the Lehigh and Schuylkill
men must have a new basis before the
men in the Lackawana and Wyoming
regions can go to work.
"The United Mineworkers will lay
themselves open if they have not al
ready done so to the charge of being
the largest and most dangerous trust to
the public welfare that has ever exit
ed and the organization will make the
mistake of all others that of going too
faraiid using its power to "hurt the
public, as well as those directly inter
ested. "Our company will he glad to dis
cuss the matter with our employes
when they are ready to meet us with a
view of going back to work, without
regard to what Schuylkill operators
may do. The strike has already'cost
us a great deal of money, and the men
much more, as well as loss of trade,
which we may not recover in years
In the meantime soft coal mines are
working night and day filling the place
3f anthracite coal."

New York, Oct. 15. A dispatch to
the Journal and Advertiser from Rome,
says: The anarchist Bertollani, ar
rested at Milan as a suspected aocom
nlioe of Iiresci. has made a confession
about anarchist plots.
'I have known about these plots tor
a long time," he said. "It was I who
sent the letter to the crown prosecutor
at Naples, warning himinadvanoe that
Italian anarohists were coming irora
America to kill the king, but they paid
no attention to my letter. At an an
archist meeting in Paterson, JN. J.,
seven men were selected to kill kings
and chiefs of states. One ot them was
alloted to kill MoKinley or Bryan dur
ing the presidential campaign. I do
not know the name of the man who
s assicned to this duty. The recent
Chicago plot was independent of that
hatched at Paterson. I believe ocher
plots having the same object, have been
organized in the United States. An
archists have killed kings and queens,
now tbey should kill a president of a
republic to show tho world that for an
archiats there are neither monarchies
nor republics, and that a king is as
cheap as a president."

Organlned Effective Work.
A lesson that can be learned from the
attitude of many of the Eastern utatea
as regards river and harbor improve
ments; these lm provements are not left
to chance or regarded with indifference,
but the claims of each locality are
made known and systematically push
ed by organized effort, such as
boards ol trade or merchants
associations. Eastern iuterests are or
ganized for work, and when an Eastern
locality wants a river and harbor appro
priation it goes alter it in a thorough,
svstematio manner, and sooner or later
gets it. This is what the WeBt can
and should do. Every Western ooard
of trade, ohamber of commerce aud
commercial organisation should bestir
Itself individually, 'bring all the influ
ence it can to bear upon the senators
and congressmen of its state, and act
ively co-operate with the National Ir
rigation Associntion to not only insure
favorable congressional action on these
lurvey estimates, but to otherwise ad
vance the interests of the arid region

General Abbott, "is waiting for the
recommendation of the Walker com
niseion to congress and for the action

heard when in Paris was a revelation
to it. Already between three ana lour
