ScrarVton, Oct. 2. The sentiment
among the" representatives of the coal

miners. sThese same men today say the
White IIouso conference will hasten
the end or the strike; that 1G will show
the minors that no third ptfrty, not
even the President of the United States,
can budge the operators from their po
sition, and that, once this Is realized,
the strikers will weaken.

HE WAS MISUNDERSTOOD
EMPEROR WILLIAM; PLANNED TO
GIVE BOERS COUNSEL, BUT
BRITISH PRESS SPOILED IT
BERLIN, Oct 2.rMIniBterIal circles
are astonished at the anti-German ex
pressions In the British press In con
nection with the application of the
Boer generals to be received by Em
peror William.) What His Majesty,: 11
appears, really Intended, was -to have
given the generals some good advice,
tending ' to promote harmonious rela
tions between the Boers and British
during .the political reconstruction of
South Africa., The widening of the rift
between the British Government and
the Boer generals seems to have given
the Emjror the Idea, according to
semi -official talk, that he could serve
both the British and the Boers by coun
seling the latter to forego the agitation
which has. arisen on the- Continent on
the basis of what Is called Great Bri
tain's ungenerous treatment. "
r Since, however.. Emperor William's
object is wholly misunderstood In Eng
land, it is said definitely that the gen
erals will not be received by His Maj
esty, unless the British Government ap
proves of It.

LONDON, Oct. 2. The Bank of Eng

from 2 to 4 per cent today. The ad

depletion of gold as shown by the re
port of the Bank of England. Conse
quently Its effect on the Stock Ex

NEW YORK. Oct. 2.--Whlle the an
thracite coal miners' strike Is directly
or Indirectly responsible ,for much of
the shortage in pig-iron In the East, it
Is evident, says the Iron Age, even If
there had been ho strike, the furnaces
of this country" would have been unable
to meet the demand. Foreign sources
of supply would have been drawn upon.
Business in pig-iron and ste,el billets
for Importation continues quite heavy.
A sale of several tons of the foreign
Bessemer Is reported to have been made
at $22. Boston. German manufactur
ers have booked such large amounts of
billet business from this side that they
are advancing prices. Importations of
structural shapes is increasing.'
The coke situation continues exas
perating to all classes of consumers. It
Is cutting down the consumption of pig
Iron. The leading sheet-iron Interest
has made a reduction during the week
of $51 per ton.. This is due to over
production. A revision of prices has
also been made in the . wire trade,
amounting to $2 per ton on wire nails
and $T per ton on barb wire.
