because we determined to put an
end to the so-called price cutting in
this line that Is commonly adver

We had a way of setting them not
uncommon to us. We knew that
the bottom had literally fallen out

Possibility Which Is Terrible to Dwell
Upon in View of tin Fact That It

Indication That the Whole Place
Has Caved In from the Surface
These nre dreary days of waiting and
watching for those who hunt? about the
mouth of the Ill-fated Twin shaft at
Pittston. Not the slightest Incident
hus occurred In the lust forty-eight
hours to help kiep alive the faint ray of
hope that possibly some of the unfortu
nate men might be brought out alive
and, now, this dim possibility causes
Mtter anguish Instead of consolation
for they feel that It were far better
that their beloved ones should be dead
than to be dying in delirium Inch by
Inch In the dark lonesome caverns of
the mine. The fact thut many of the
bereaved women now appear In mourn
ing when they make their Ti-equent Vis
its to the mine Indicates as strongly as
unythlng can that even they have
ieus;d to hone
There Is still the possibility, quite
generally admitted that some of the
men may still be alive' but those who
hold this belief are loth to give It
words for the terrible picture this possi
bility conjectures up before the mind is
dreadful to contemplate, now that It Is
so certain three or four weeks will
pass before the rescuers can reach the
spot where the men are supposed to
have been caught.
Vesterday like the days Immediately
preceding brought forth no goad news.
The rate of progress was If unythlng. a
trllle slower than on Thursday. Right
und a half feet were cleared but only
ti's feet were completely tunnelled, dur
Ini the eight hours between 7 a. in.
and 3 p. m.. .From that time until 11
o'clock last night when the next shift
came up the progress was just about
the same. Yesterday morning the res
cuers encountered an unusually large
boulder 10xfix3 und lost much tinid in
breaking It up and removing- it.

It Is hoped today that a little better
time will be made as the roud Just In
advance of where the men were work
ing yesterday hus been explored uml
appears to be free from extra sized
rocks and lias one or two clear Bpots.
The use of sledges for breaking the
rock has been dune away with to a
great extent by the adoption of the "pin
and feather" method, so much in vogue
in quarries. A row of shallow holes
are drilled In the rock, wortges ar in

ing with a Tribune reporter said he was
glad of the governor's action and that
it was Intelligent and competent men
who were to conduct the Investigation
and not a coroner's jury with Its Indis
criminate make-up. To the reporter's
question as to whether there was any
truth In the report that the company
had Instigated the governiv's investiga
tion, Mr. Law said: "Not the slightest.

and Invited the Investigation, but this
Mr. Patterson denied when I was talk
ing with him this morning. Neither he
nor any of the other officers of the com
pany had any knowledge of the gover
nor's action until we saw the dispatches
in this morning's papers. Mr. Patterson
agreed with me that the Investigation
was to be welcomed by us and that we
should congratulate ourselves that it is
to be an Intelligent Investigation. We
will do all In our power to aid the In
vestigating commission in making a
full and complete report on the matter."
. MINE INSPECTOR STEIN.
Inspector William teln, of Shenan
doah, one of the commission, arrived
on the scene yesterday morning having
eome simply as a visitor. He learned
of the letter addressed to him by Gov
ernor Hastings after he had Btarted
from home and consequently had not
had much time to consider the matter.
When Interviewed on the matter he
said that the Investigation will probably
be private out of courtesy to the gov
ernor who Is entitled to the first Infor
mation concerning the commission's
findings, inasmuch as the investigation
was suggested by him and the com
mission was his creation. Mr. Stein had
not seen Inspectors Broderlck or Bar
num, the other .members of the com
mlaleon and consequently could not
say definitely how the Investigation will
be conducted. As far as he was con
cerned himself he would not object to
relatives of the widows or their repres
entatives being present at the sessions
of the commission, but believed that It

SENTIMENT IN FAVOR OF TELLER
His Associates in the Senate Arc
All (living Him Supports-Senator
Jones Declurcs Thut There Shall
Uc No Jugglery wilii the Platform.
Chicago, July 3. It looks as If the
Chicago Democratic convention would
he quite as lnp-slded nc the recent
Republican gathering at St. Iouis.
There has been no break today In the
monotony of the signs and tokens of
whut Is to happen. It Is to be a free
silver convention. Moreov-r, with sur
prising unanimity the controlling men
of the western and southern delega
tions have declared thxir preference for
Teller. Nearly all his associates or for
mer associates in the senate who be
lieve In ftie coinage are giving hltn
their support. The list includes Tur
Pie, of Indiana; Jones, of Arkansas;
Harrison, of Tennessee; Walsh, of
Ceoigla: Chilton, of Texas, and Cock
rell, of Missouri.
When the eastern delegates and
friends of the gold standard reach
Chicago they will lind that the silver
men have absolute control of tho situa
tion. Conferences have been frequent
during the day. Out of ull this con
sultation but .one concrete fact seems
to huve been developed. The platform
will be concise, short and clear cut.
without so much as a ambiguous word
thut can be misconstrued into mean
ing anything other than out and out
declaration for the free and unlimited
coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1.
Senators Jones, of Arkansas; Rate
and Harris, of Tennessee; 'Blackburn,
of Kentucky; Tillman, of South Caro
lina, und Cockrell, of Missouri: Senator-elect
Money, of Mississippi: Rep
resentative Richardson, of Tennessee,
and Hon. Joint R. Mi Lean, have been
in conference during the day, and all
arc unxeed that the financial plank
shall be (riven that prominence which
its importance demands, and that Its
text shall be so short and Its meaning so
llxed and determined thai he who runs
can read it utidetvtuiidlngly,
NO Gl'SH AM.OWKD.
"T'latltudes will be eschewed by this
convention," said Senator Jones, of Ar
kansas, today. "The silver men repre.
sent the plain people of tile country,

tion will be such that no n.an can Jug

When usked if he had any fear of
the delegates being weaned from their
allegiance to silver. Mr. Jones replied
with a negative that was emphatic und
coinlucliig as to the sincerity of his
own views. "If the gold men are hop
ing to be successful in proselyting
among the silver men," he continued,
"it Is high time they understood the
character of timber of which this con
vention will be constructed. The del
egates to the convention are men who
can neither be hoii:rht cr bull-dozed.
They are firm In the faith, and noth

cause, which they put above all other
political questions. Long months ago,

NO OOI.D NOTIO WIM. POl'ND.
Concerning the report that the na
tional committee intended to attempt
to force a gold standard man upon
the convention for tempoiaiy chair
man, Mr. Richardson said: "Nothing
of the kind will be done. Of course
we recognize the fact that the commit
tee, as at present constituted. Is
against silver, but the committee will
be very apt to remember also that the
convention Is very largely the other
way. If It decides by a majority vote
to recommend to the convention a geld
man, the minority of the committee
will offer a substitute naming a silver
man. When the committee makes Its
report to the convention the first sub
stitute will be offered, and a substitute
is always voted on first. The substi
tute will be adopted, and If there is to
be a brush about the question. It will
be short and quick and result In a
sweeping victory for the silver men.
The majority will not listen to the
sounding of a gold note In the opening
of the convention.
Governor Altgeld's idea that the con
vention can complete Its work in one
day is scouted by experienced politi
cians. One of them said this after
noon that while he was In favor of
reasonable haste, he recognized the
fact that It required time to err
fully transact the business of a nation
al convention. The platform would
cause some debate, depending entirely
upon the pleasure of the convention,
exercised through the gavel of the
chairman. It Is not Improbable that
some prominent person representing
the gold side of the question will be
selected to antagonise the report of the
committee on resolutions, and with
that single speech discussion will end.
This will be accomplished by a motion
from the floor demanding the previous
question, which will be promptly put
and carried. While all reasonable
pedltiort Is desired by those having- con
trol, no one of pood Judgment predicts
less than a three dcys' session.
THE GOLD BUGS ARRIVE.
.Mr. Whitney, Senator Hill and Cover
nor flower on thu Scene.
Chicago, July 3. The attractive event
of the day and the most important
from the standpoint of the anti-free
silver members of the party assem
bled In the convention city was the
arrival this evening of the advance
guard from the eastern states, prin
cipally New York, representing the
gold standard minority. Their leader
was William C. Whitney. The former
Secretary of the navy had engaged al
most the whole of the parlor floor of
the Auditorium annex nine bed rooms
and six parlous for the use of the
sound money Democracy. Mr. Whit
ney was the first to Inscribe his name
and among others were Thomas Y.
Ryan. Walter Stanton, James Smith,
Jr.. John R. Fellows, William E. Rus

Delaware; J. J. Martin, C. V. Baldwin,
Smith M. Weed, O. H. M. Harvey, H.
D. Macllona. C. R. Meller, Thomas J.
Ryan. New York.
When asked If he had any statement
to make to the press, Mr. Whitney
said:. "I shall have nothing to say to
night In the" way of an Interview. The
fact Is I have not anything to add to
whut I said for publication In New
York on the Issue, and crisis before
the party. I have been on a train for
twenty-four hours, and have Just got
In to look over the ground."

Hon. Fred Dubois, SprlnKtleld, III,
Dear Sir: I reached tills place yester

the week, when 1 will leave for Denver.
I notice thai the gold standard Dem

not think they can do It. If our sliver

us u good silver nuiv, ' tr' "t "' vi'l.

of all who believe the money question Is
the greatest question liefore the Amerlcun
people. We must, for this canipulgn, at
least, overlook ull minor differences and
put the country on u sound financial sys
tem that recognizes tnat gold and silver
are tne money of the constitution.
I believe tills can be done, and to that
end we must bend alt our energies. A
little more patriotism and a little less
partisanship is whut our country needs
ut this time. The friends of silver made
no mistHne at St. I.ouls, and we must not
make a mistake us to our future alliance
wltli other sliver advocates.
The cause is of too much importance to

The New York Silver Hanker Forced

New York, July, 3. The following
statement was given out at the Mercan
tile National batik, 191 Broadway, this
afternoon: "Mr. William P. St. John
has resigned the presidency of the Mer
cantile National bank." For several
yeurs he has outspokenly advocated
the free coinage nf silver. Recently the
fei.ling in hanking1 circles against a
bank president's advocating free silver
luts been manifest. The matter was
brought to nn Issue this morning tit the

from one of his director, of which the
following Is an extract:

Canton, Ohio, July 3. It was an In
teresting delegation of wage earners
from Tuscarawas county numbering
about 1.U00 thut called on Major Mc
Kinley this hot July afternoon. In the
midst of the procession was borne aloft
a huge sheet of American bright tin
plate manufactured in one of the mills
at Canal Dover. It Is the largest sheet
of tin plate ever made In the United
States, its dimensions being 30 by 144
The delegation was essentially a la
bor delegation. W. A. Bovey, of Den
nison, spoke for the visitors and his
earnest remarks were cordially
cheered. The appearance of Major
McKinley was the signal for a pro
longed outburst of cheering which
lusted for several minutes. After quiet
had been restored Major McKinley
made the longest Informal talk he has
yet addressed to a visiting delegation.
MAJOR M'KINLEY'S SPEECH.
Mr. Bovey and my Fellow Citizens:
I am very grateful for this visit on the
part of my friends In Tuscarawas coun
ty and I thank my old friend, your spokes
man, for the cordial and generous and
eloquent words of greeting which he has
brought to tne In your behalf. This as
semblage h fulrly typical of our Ameri
can communities, and it fitly represents
the varied occupations of the people. As
your spokesman has already said, in this
presence are furmers, laborers, mechan
ics, miners, rullroud employes, merchants,
professional men and representatives of
every rank of the people. And you are
here distant from your home not from
curiosity nor from any considerations at
all personal, but you are here because In
your hearts you believe In the great
fundamental doctrines of the Republican
party. (Loud applause). You believe
that these principles are best for you
when put Into practical legislation and
administration. You believe that those
principles will secure to all the people the
largest measure of good to the largest
number, and you believe that because
you recall that for more than a third
of a century those great Republican prin
ciples dominated legislation and adminis
tration In this country, anil that during all
thut period you have enjoyed exceptional
prosperity which you have not enjoyed
In the lust three years and a half. (Loud
You know, therefore, something of
these great principles rrom experience,
which, after all, is the most unerring
teacher, and you are only waiting for an
opportunity to express Judgment bused
upon that experience In your votes next
November. And all these demonstrations
that have been witnessed here for the
pust two weeks are only significant be
cause they show what Is in i.ie hearts
and minds of the American people: that
they want an opportunity and they want
It early to return to power that grand
old party to which your spokesman hus
so feelingly alluded In every branch of
the government of the I'nlted States.
Here In this county we are' dependent
upon each other, no matter what our oc
cupations may be. All of us want good
times, good wages, goed prices, good
markets and then we want good money
always. (Vociferous cheering).
SOCND DOLLAK3 WANTED.
When we give a good day's wagn to
our employers we want to be paid In good
sound ilollurs. worth VI cents, and no
less. Now, whutever policy will bring
us back to these goods Is the one that the
great majority of the American people are
In favor of and will so register their
votes at the coming election, and vou
seem to have made up your minds what
that policy Is. I am going to detain vou
only long enough to say that I am grate
ful for this manifestation of your canll
dence upon the part of representatives of
