cure Hugh Gordon Miller, the wonder
ful young Vliglnla political orator, to

It was explained that he had en
gagements to make four speeches In

-4- vote for McKinley:
4- "The founders of this republic expected that there would always
be selected for the presidency the man best qualified for that office
. and for the vice presidency the man next best qualified. In my
judgment William McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt are the two
citizens of the United States who best meet the test of superior qual-
"In addition to their personal merit they are the unanimous
4- choice of the great Republican party and stand squarely on the
4- party plaform which declares for protection to American industries,
honest money and national honor. For the same reasons I heartily
. support our nominee for congress, Hon William Connell.
"Four years ago many men who disagreed with the po-
- litical views of Mr. Bryan gave him credit with being sincere in
" his convictions. Now as he goes about over this prosperous country
T with his gospel of hate and envy, arraying neighbor against neigh
.4. bor, the workman against his employer, the loafers against the in-
dustrious, and artfully dodging every issue of national importance,
I cannot see how he can be considered other than a demagogue and
as such would be least dangerous in private life."

The parade formed at Main and Di

Nay Aug drum corps.
The West Side Central Republican
club, attlied in their Rough Rider unl-

blue globed lanterns came next, and
they marched with soldierly bearing
and precision of step. The Swedish

At this point Mr. Groiv gav a brief
resume ' of tho Republican policy of
protection and high tariff, exploding
logically tho Democratic thoury of free

soup." Ho" then took up tho question
of expansion and said:

Is concerned only two additional gen
eral demands are to lie made, a com
pliance with the semi-monthly pay
law and the malntalnance of it check
Welshman or check docking boss at
each colliery. Some other local de
mands may ho mndo by men at dif
ferent collieries, but what these nro
Mr. Nichols had no opportunity as
yet to learn.
Tho miners themselves will pay the
wages of the chock Welshman or
check docking boss. The former Is to
be stationed at collieries which pay
by the ion and the latter where pay
ment Is made by the car. His duty
will he to see to It that the minor
gets a just allowance for the coal sent
up. At present the miner has rto pro
tection against Injustice that might
be practiced by a docking boss who Is
dishonest or over-zealous In the com
pany's interests. Hy having a repre
sjntatlvo of the miners present at tho
weighing or dumping of the coal this
Injustice would be checked.
What the operators will do about
the checkman xenialns to be seen, but
in the matter of semi-monthly pays
they have no choice but to accede If
the men make the demand. One oper
ator who was spoken to yesterday said
the only objection the operators will
have to the semi-monthly pay Is that
It means two periods of past-pay-day-ldleness
a month Instead of one.
It also causes inconvenience by rea
son of the fact that some of the men
do not want their pay oftener than
once a month and do not come In foi
It except on the first pay-day. At one
of his collieries some years ago the
men went on strike for the restoration
of the monthly pay-day, he said.
All the Ontario and Western col
lieries, Including the Mt. Pleasant,
started up yesterday, and now the only
mines remaining idle are the two of
the Forest Mining company at Arch
bald, the Green Ridge Coal company's
slope, at Johnson's Patch, and the
Clark Tunnel company's small opening
at the "Notch."
Negotiations for a settlement of the
difficulties which prevent a resumption
of work at these places are going on
nnd It Is confidently expected that by
the first of the month the men will
be once more at work.
AT GREEN RIDGE.
At the Gteen Ridge colliery the
tiouble grows out of the enmloves In
sisting upon having the company make
the advance in wages by reducing
powder to $1.."0 per keg and adding two
and one-half cents to the car. The com
pany did not Join with the other oper
ators In reaching this agreement and
does not propose to be bound by It. The
company is willing to pay a ten per
cent, advance in wages, as the miners'
convention demanded, but it Is opposed
to paving it on 7','-2Vi basis.
At the Clark Tunnel the men object
to working under a boss named George
Speeder, who they claim does not deal
fairly with them.
The trouble at Archbald is that the
company has failed to adjust the griev
ance which was mainly the cause of
their going on strike originally, seven
months ago. This grievance Is the
measurement of the ton. For years it
has been fixed at 3,240 Bounds. The
men want It cut down to 2.800 pounds.
The company claims It can not get a
ton of coal out of 2,800 pounds of the
material the miners send up, and re
fuses to make the cut.
Tho men also object to the company
giving one man or firm a general con
tract for all pillar robbing, and want
that this work should be divided among
the regular force of miners. A check
wctghman is also Insisted upon.
