Miners do not Favor Proposition of Coal
: Operators Unfair, They Say.
Wilketbarre, Pa., Oct. 16.' From a
thorough canvass of the situation as it
exists tonight there is every indication
that the new arbitration plan proposed
by the presidents of the coal com pan
ies for ending the miners' strike will
not be accepted in its present form
There is a division of opinion among
the strikers, but there is no doubt that
a majority feel that the offer to have
the president of the United States
select an arbitration commission along
the lines suggested by the operators is
not fair, and that it unduly limits the
board. The miners, it is safe to say,
will abide by the ffOvice of their na
tional president, , in whose judgment
they have the utmost confidence. . A
. President Mitchell declines to say
how he personally looks upon the prop
osition, but tonight be gave to the press
the following statement: t ;
"1 fully.appreciate with what anxiety
the people of our country are awaiting
the end of the coal strike. The coal
operators have not addressed the Min
ers union, or its officers, in making
their public statement. It is therefore
impossible for me to state the attitude
of the miners at this time. I am now,
as I have always been, deeply solicitous
of the interests of the public and the
welfarre of the mineworkers who have
been on strike for the past five months.
A formal statement defining of position
and intentions will be issued just a?
soon as we are in possession of the full
meaning of the proposition of the

There is still a th'ird view held by

the plan proposed and make a counter
pioposition, embodying some of the
suggestions contained in the operators'
offer. One proposition suggested is

president each select a numbei of men
to act as a board. This was mentioned
by President Mitchell,' but he would
make no comment on it.
HOT BATTLE WITH ROBBERS.
Aged Men Killed Two Assailants, but were
Badly Injured Themselves.
' Cleveland, O., Oct. 16. In a farm
house two miles from the village of
Rochester, in Loraine county, a terrible
battle was fought tonight between aged
brothers named Meach and six desper
ate robbers.' As a result of the battle
two of the robbers were shot ' to death,
one probably fatally wounded, and two
of the -Meach brothers were badly
There are three of the Meach broth
ers, Loren, aged nearly 80 years; John,
about 70, and Jarvis, aged 65. The
old men are said to be rich. While
John was in the barn, he was sur
rounded by three robbers and' bound.
Going to the house they knocked Jarvis
Meach into insensibility. John Meach
worked himself loose from, the bonds,
howeter, and seizing a shotgun, cau
tiously stole upon the three burglars
who were working at the safe. He shot
two of them ' to death and fatally
wounded the third man. The three
companions of the men, who were watch
ing the house, realizing their danger,
immediately got away. The robbers
secured no money.
The wounded robber refused to make
any statement as to identity.
WILSON 00ES TO GREECE.
Spokane Man Transferred from Chile at a
Lost of $3,500 in Salary.
Washington, Oct. 16. Henry L.
Wilson, of Spokane, minister to Chile,
has secured a European mission, but at
a great'eacrifice of salary. He gets a
similar post in Greece at $6,600 a year,
while his present position pays $10,
000. This could not have been brought
about had not the minister to
Greece kindly consented to retire, in
order to make places for several people.
Minister Francis was not particular
about serving longer in Greece, and
was willing to get out of the way in
order to promote John B. Jackson, now
first secretary of the embassy at Berlin.
The pressure of Wilson's friends to get
him a place in Europe, and the induce
ment to Jackson to secure the Chilean
mission, which is worth $3,500 more
than that of Greece, brought about the
change. Again, the Chilean mission
has always been considered more im
portant than Greece, and Wilson's
change, although brought about by
great pressure, it aot considered a pro
motion. Strong Box Stole.'
Victoria, B. C, Oct, 18. Informa
tion has bean received hete that a box
containing bank notes of the value of
$50,000 gold has been stolen from the
strong room of the China and Manila
steamer Zafiro, on her last voyage from
Hong Kong to Manila. The consign
ment was signed for by one of the
ship's officers, and prior to the vessel's
arrival at Manila the strong room was
opened only once, and that was to ad
mit a consignment of opium.

Behind Contract Time In Construction
This Permits Improvements.
Washington, Oct. 15. "Progress
upon new vessels under construction
during the past year has not been satis
factory," says Rear Admiial Bowles,
chief of the naval bureau of construe
tion, in his annual report to the secre
tary of the navy. All the larger ves
sels, he says, have been delayed by the
nondelivery of structural steel, while
the vessels building at San Francisco
were sot back by the 10 months' strike,
and the holdout of the workmen at Se
attle prevented any actual progress on
le structure of the hull of the battle
ship Nebraska building there. The do
lay In the deliveries of armor for ' the
battleships Maine, Missouri, and Ohio
and the monitors Arkansas, Florida,
Nevada and Wyoming has rotaided the
completion of these vessels, concurrent
ly with other causes. The inability of
shipbuilders to obtain a sufficient force
of skilled workers also has been in
many cases an important factor in the
The battleship Ohio is shewn to have
been 29 months behind her contract on
the first of July. The battleship Mis
souri is over 20 months behind. The
majority of the battleships and cruisers
are over 10 months behind, and some
of the torpedo craft are more than 40
months behind the date of completion
stipulated in their contracts. How
ever, Admiral Bowleg gays that the ex
tensive delays on the torpedo boats are
being terminated by the newly modified
conditions foi their dolivery.
The contractors delay in beginning
construction of the Virginia, Pennsyl
vania and St. Louis, the chief con
structor points out, gave his bureau an
opportunity to make a careful revision
of the general- plans of those vessels
which, he says, will result in a con
siderable improvement in their military
value and in their habitability. The
plans for the turrets of the Virginia
class were developed in more detail.
An entire rearrangement of the scheme
for the stowage of ammunition was
made and particular attention was
given to an efficient scheme for coaling.
The ships added to the navy during the
past year the battleship Illir.ois and the
torpedo craft Decatur, Perry, Preble,
Biddle, Thornton and Wilkes.
Substantial and encouraging progress
is reported in the standardization of
ship fittings, a scheme to secure uni
formity in the innumerable types of
ship's parts, which has long been fos
tered by the construction department.
MUTINY ON A SHIP.
Murderous Plan to Secure $15,000 and
Wreck the Vessel.
New York, Oct. 15. The little
steamer Dos Hermanos was sent out on
a cruise among some of the southern
islands by a trading firm a few days be
fore the transport Sherman left Manila,
e&ys a dispatch from San Francisco.
The steamer reached Virac and an
chored in the harbor there. Officers
and the few passengers on board were at
dinner in the cabin when about 30 of
the crew, led by the boatswain, rushed
down the gangway armed with knives
hatchets and clubs, and demanded the
money that was on the vessel. The
officers were caught unarmed. The two
women passengers fled to their rooms.
The captain and men passengers gave
the mutineers battle.
The Dos Hermanos was anchored
close to the shore and not far away
from the constabulary barracks. The
noise of the fight was heard at the bar
racks and officers put out to the vessel.
They succeeded in boarding after a
desperate struggle with the mutineers,
several of whom were shot and killed.
The others, numbering 34, were arrest
ed charged with mutiny and piracy.
It is supposed the plan of the muti
neers was to kill all the officers, run
away with the steamer, take the
$15,000 which was aboard and then
wreck the slim and declare all were
lost except themselves.

PUBLIC FUNDS SOLICITED.
Wage Earners Asked to Contribute Their
Earnings for One Hour Each Monday.
Washington, Oct. 14. The American
Federation of Labor, through its exec
utive council, has issued an address to
the public, appealing for financial and
moral aid for the striking anthracite
miners, and denouncing the attitude of
the mine owners, on whom, the appeal
says, must rest the responsibility for
the hardships resulting from the coal
famine. The address in part is as fol
lows: "To the Public and Organized Labor:
The striie of the miners is now in its
23d week. That the strike occurred
was entirely the fault of the presidents
of the coal companies. That the strike
has continued to this day is entirely
due to the contempt which the presi
dents of the coal companies have for the
people of our country, and the untold
sufferings which all may endure. No
ofer to settle the strike could be fairer
than that of the miners' representative
at the conference with President Roose
velt. The operators' haughty ar
rogance, brutal, dominating spirit and
blasphemous assumption of divine
wealth, proprietorship, shook the uni
verse, and aroused the indignation bf
all lovers of justice and fair dealing.
"What more could the miners do and
maintain their self respect and not for
feit the respect of their fellow men, ,
than their willingness to submit all '
matters in dispute to a commission ap
pointed by President Roosevelt, and
whet, that was refused, to leave the en
tire controversy to J. P. Morgan, one of
the men largely interested with the
operators. There has never been a
time, either before the strike or since
its inauguration, that the miners have
not been entirely, willing to have the
questions' involved -in the miners'
claims investigated and adjusted by any
"In behalf of the miners, in behalf
of the cause of freedom, for justice and
right, the undersigned, representing the
organized wage earners of America,
appeal to all people to contribute gen
erously, promptly, and to continue the
same until the termination of this con
test. And to that end the following
suggestion! are made:
"First That in each city and town. "
business, professional and public men
form relief committees to solicit finan
cial and other contributions.
"Second That the hours between 10
and 11 o'clock of each Monday morning
during the continuance of the strike, is
designated as 'Miners' Hour,' and the
wages earned during that hour by the
working people of our country be ap
propriated to the miners.
"Third That the ministers of the
gospel of all denominations make a
special plea to their respective congre
gations each Sabbath morning in behalf
of the miners, their wives and children,
and that they constitute .themsolves
into relief committees among their re
spective parishioners. .
"Fourth That the daily, weekly
and labor press solicit contributions
from their readers; entertainments be
arranged and contributions from unions
and other organized bodies solicited.
"fellow citizens, fellow wage earn
ers, come to the aid of the miners in
their heroic contest, and administer a
well merited rebuke for the arrogant,
oppressive and unjustifiable attitude
toward the miners of the operators,
who would trample under foot and
crush the hearts and spirits of the men
whom they employ with equally cal
lous indifference as they outrage digni
ty, the manhood and the interests of
every man, woman and child in our
"hend all contrlbtions to W. B. Wil
son, Secretary United Mineworkers of
America, Stevens Building, Indianapo- '
TO INCREASE CUBAN ARMY.
Island Congress Is Now Considering a Bill
for This Purpose.
Washiigton, Oct. 14. The Cuban
congress is considering a bill to in
crease the Cuban army to three or
four times its present strength, and
the impression prevails in the island
that tlit bill will be enacted. Should
Secretary Root beed the appeal of Pres
ident Palma, the legislation would be
looked upon as almost necessary, as the
Cubans are looking forward with much
anxiety to the time when their own
troops can form the sole garrison of
Havana, and whtn there will be no
other troops to dispute their title.
The natives of the island, according
to mail advices from the Cuban me
tropolis, have a misconception of the
intention of this government in leaving
a handful of troop in their territory.
Those that remain are in no way acting
at a garrison, and do not assert them
selves, or thrust themselves to the
front, as they did prior to May 20.
Officially, neither American officers
nor men appear at any functions.
Whenever tbey art invited, it it in a
personal and not an official capacity.
It is said today that an American uni
form it rarely teen on the streets of
Havana, there being practically no
evidence of the ptosence of our troops
in that vicinity.
