During the last three days, 1,860 Im
migrants from the Canary Islands and
Barcelona have arrived here and have
left for the country districts, where
employment is readily obtained. This
continued influx partially solves the
labor question, many of the plantations

Hopes That Miners Will Accept.
The belief Is general that the miners
will accept tho increase. Most of the
mine owners who havo granted the
wage concession do not specify In their
notices how long the advance shall
remain In forco and It Is not unlikely
that an attempt will be made by tho
miners In convention to open nego
tiations with tho operators, looking
toward an understanding In the mat
ter. President Mltchell'and tho lother
labor leaders aro strong advocates of
an annual wage scale arrangement,
similar to that In force fn the bitumin
ous coal field. The operators In those
regions meet their employes each year
and fix the wage scale. If this propo
sition and that relating to the aboli
tion of tho sliding scale are brought
before the convention and negotiations
with the mine owners are opened, It
might considerably delay the settle
ment of tho strike.

Wilkes-Barre, Oct. 7. The coming
convention of miners to agree upon
terms of a settlement of the strike
was the principal topic of conversation
among the strikers today. The dele
gates from the Wyoming1 Valley will

The coal operators of this section

not stand in the way of a settlement.
Sheriff Harvey left town for Hazle

anxious than the operators or men for

SLIGHT OF PRINCE INKANTHOR
Accusations Against Trench Admin
istration la Cambodia.
By Exclusive Wirt from The Associated Pre.
Paris, Oct. 7,-Tho flight of the
Cambodian Prince Inknthor to Brus
sels Is furnishing tho Parisians with
much Interesting reading and Is giving
the foreigners a glimpse of Frenoh
colonial officialdom. A leading paper
somewhat Indiscreetly publishes a let
ter containing the grievances which
Inkathor presented to the French gov
ernment In behalf of his father. This
appoat for Justice Is eloquently worded
and Is almost pathetic, although the
defenders of the governor general of
Cambodia, Doumer, assert that Inkan
thor and his father, King Norodom,
nro strikingly faithful to the Oriental
traditions of mendacity. The docu
ment charges Doumer and his sur
rounding with robbing and browbeat
ing the king. Ho particularly com
plains that Doumer suppressed his
right to farm out tho Cambodian gam
ing saloons, because the concessionaire
declined to pay the governor general
an annual blackmail of 125,000. The
king, It appears, was thereby deprived
of a revenue of $140,090 and 400 tacls
Much the same accusations are
brought against Doumer'a predeces
sors, and the Prince Inkanthor says
he found among the leading personages
In the colonial world of Parts a man
who became rich on selling King Noro
dom brass for gold and sorry Austral
Ian hacks for French thoroughbreds.
An inspired reply to the document,
just published, admits that the French
administration Is not above reproach,
but declares the documents are not
worthy of credence, as Inkanthor is an
Impostor, representing himself to be
tho heir to the throne, when the French
government alone decides this matter
and has designated the king's brother
as his successor. It Is further asserted
that In the gambling question King
Norodom violated the convention by
authorizing traveling gaming hells in
order to exact a larger Income. More
over, the king Is accused of conspiring
to overthrow French domination by fo
menting an Insurrection.
It Is now reported that the French
government has asked that Inkanthor
be expelled from Belgium, and the
Parisians are waiting to see what Is
going to happen to King Norodom, who
is sixty-seven years old. He Is not
likely to be disturbed, as today ho
telegraphed to the government express
ing regret at his son's action, and Bay
ing his son was not authorized to make
a claim against France. At the same
time the king telegraphed to Inkan
thor, at Brussels, ordering him to re
turn home Immediately and threaten
ing' him with serious punishment in
case of disobedience.

"McKlnley and Roosevelt will be

of Edingburgh: "Dunce he is and
dunce he will remain," observes tho
St. Louis Star.
Richard Brlnsley Sheridan, tho emin
ent Irish orator and dramatic author,
was so stupid when a boy that his
mother upon one occasion introduced
him to a tutor with the remark: "He
is an Incorrigible dunce."
Dean Swift, the eloquent divine and
humorist, was by no means a bril
liant boy. He was plucked at Dublin
university and obtained his recommen
dation to Oxford "special gratia."
Oliver Goldsmith while a student, at
Trinity college, Dublin, was notorious
for Idleness nnd stupidity. In after
years he spoke of himself as "a plant
that flowered late."

Sir Humphrey Davy, the eminent
English chemist nnd natural philoso
pher, was but an "ordinary" schoolboy,
giving no promise of future greatness.
Robert Cllve, tho English general,

to get rid of him his family gladly
permitted him to go as an ensign to
India. He fought his way to a colonel
cy by tho time he reached munhood,

of the oldest boys In the company, with tho
aid of teroy and John Sutts, rolled McBride on
the ground, extinguishing the Harries. Ho wai
taken home by xrrs. Moser, Mrs. Corwcll and
Mrs. Cottrell, three women living near tho
place where the accident occurred.
"Arrest tleorge Mejewi ho did it," wore tha
first worda Mcllrldo said to his mother, accord
ing to her statement to Coroner Bowers, who in
vestigated the case. Mcllrlde, before ho died,
told his mother that Meyers had deliberately
thrown the liquid on Ills clotjdng and then set
fire to It. Meyers denies this, and says that lie
picked tho bottlo up from an ash heap and was
ignorant of Its contents. Ho declares that ha
simply threw tho open bottle across the Are,
tin- liquid from which suddenly flared up and
set fire to McBrldo's clothing. A carctul inves
tigation seems to confirm Meyera' statement
that tho affair was accidental.
