John McBride said tonight that while
the fiettlt-incnt was not all that
he conld wish, it was the best
that the miners could hop,; for under
the circumstance!. They were atill
the victors of the contest. "The
miner! were starving, Industrial were
paralyzed and thousand! of fellow
Workiugmen were being daily thrown
out of employment by reason of the
coal famine while the interference
with property rights which wherever
dont was blamed on the miners, was
loosing public sympathy for ns." Ho
thought the settlement would be at
once ratified all over the district.

structions of the conference, filed a
copy of the agreement with Uoverhor
McKinley as its custodian. Governor
