I Coal Operators Lose About Fifty

By Exclusive Wire from The Associated Pres1,
WIlkeH-Barre, Pa., June 2. The order
of the United Mine Workers of Amer
ica, culling out on strike all engineers,
firemen and pumpmen employed at col
lieries where the eight-hour workday
with present wages was not granted,
went into effect today, and, as has been
predicted, a majority of the men obeyed
the order. Neither side can claim a
victory at this time, because the strug
gle on this phase of the anthracite coal
miners' strike has just opened. Thero
was only a partial showing of strength
today. The real test of whether or not
the mine pumps shall be manned will
begin tomorrow. Although a majority
of the men quit work, the companies,
jenerally speaking, succeeded In keep-'
,ng their pumps In operation. ' The op
erators feel that at present they have
the advantage, but they are not so san
. guine of the future. The exact number
of men who quit today cannot be ob
tained. Each side refuses to make pub
lic their figures, but gave out informa
tion that roughly estimates the number
of men affected. These estimates are
National President Mitchell, of the
miners' union, gave out a statement, In
which he says:
"Reports received from every Import
ant mining community Indicate that
I where the eight-hour day has not been
conceded, fully eighty per cent, of the
firemen, pumpmen and engineers have
ceased work. The number will be ma
terially Increased tomorrow. In some
sections mine foremen have positively
declined to perform the work of en
gineers, firemen and pumpmen. In
some plates foremen have manned the
pumps and clerks have also been re
quired to perform this labor.
"A perfect army of Irresponsible men
have been employed by the coal com
panies to act as coal and Iron police
men. The services of these men are
unnecessary and their presence unwar
ranted. There have been no violation's
today by the mine workers, and I am
sanguine there will be no overt act on
the part of the strikers,"
In reply to a question after Issuing
his statement, Mr. Mitchell suld he
knew of no mine that is being flooded
as a result of the uetion of the union
t In explaining the first sentence of his
statement Mr. Mitchell said that sev
eral of the Individual operators hud
conceded the demands of the men dur
ing the past ten days, but that not one
of the big companies had done so.
Mitchell's Estimate Is High.
On the other hand, a mining official
of one 6t the largest coal companies
who received accurate Information
from the entire coal belt, made this
"President Mitchell's estimate Is too
high. We have received figures from
all our collieries and the general super
intendents of all the other coal com
panies, but they are not .to be given out
as It would not be policy to reveal our
weak spots or to betray our strong
holds as far as they relate to the col
lieries individually, I can, however,
say thut about 65 per cent of all the
Lehigh Valley's men who are scattered
from neur Scranton down to Shamokln,
went out, The Delaware, Lackawanna
and Western, the Delaware and Hud
eon and the Erie companies, 'whose op
erations are mostly located north of
here, fared a little better. The Susque
hanna Coal company's collieries which
are controlled by the Pennsylvania
railroad and which are located at Nnn
tlcoke, south of here, were crippled less
than any big company In the region.
The Reading company, with forty col
lieries in the lower region, was the
worst sufferer, more than 70 per cent
of Its men refusing to go to work. The
Individual companies all lost more
than fifty per cent of their men.
"Notwithstanding the big desertion
of men every colliery In the entire re
gion that made the effort was able to
get up steam and maintain It. We ure
satisfied under the circumstances with
the sltuutlon us It exists at present,
nd wo do not care to boast of our fu
ture ability to keep the mines from
flooding. The companies huve nearly
all the men they want for present
'We look for Intimidation of our
tnen by the strikers, but we will go
Tight ulong and protect pur employes
and property us best we cmi."
Considering the vast number of men
who aro Idle, the couWIIold was very
ji.l'it throughout the day, Reports
came In from several sections telling of
disturbances, but these were of a min
or nature only. Early this morning, at
noon and this evening some workmen
were stoned, principally by boys, as
they were on their way from the mines
to their homes. The small army of coal
and Iron police which is In the field are
not much In evidence. The companies
have Instructed these men that, In or
der to avoid all trouble, they must not
make themselves conspicuous.
Committees of the local unions were
busy tonight canvassing the men who
remained at work today. Hundreds of
them cannot be reached, however, as
they are quartered within the confines
of the collieries. The companies do not
care to risk the safety of the men by
letting them go to their boarding places
or their homes. There was quite a
flurry here today when It was learned
that a party of negroes had arrived
over the Jersey Central railroad. The
strikers at first thought they were to
take the places of the union men which
somewhat Incensed them. It was learn
ed later that they were only engaged
to cook for the non-union workmen
temporarily living at the collieries.
The several brotherhoods of railroad
employes In this locality held a meet
ing here today at which the general
strike sltuutlon was discussed. No ac
tion of any kind was taken.
Conditions at Pittston.
Pittston, June 2. About seventy-five
per cent, of the firemen, pump-runners
and engineers of this district obeyed
the order to strike this morning. There
was no disorder of any kind, although
large crowds congregated In the vicin
ity of several of the collieries. At the
Lehigh Valley collieries, all the fire
men and pumpmen and several engi
neers quit work, while at the Erie
company's collieries, In the lower end
of the city, the result was quite differ
ent, all the engineers and pumpmen re
maining at work. The Stevens Coal
company firemen and the Lehigh Valley
firemen at the Twin shaft have been
working on the eight hour system for
some time and continued at work to
day. The Stevens pumpmen were also
at work today, having on Saturday
been granted an increase In wages. All
the collieries have been provisioned
and sleeping quarters arranged, and
those employes now at work will be
well provided for. A squad of ten men,
accompanied by Superintendent Wil
liams, all carrying Winchester rifles,
called at No. 10 colliery this malng.
Situation at Tamaqua.
Tamaqua, Pa., June 2. About one
half of the engineers, firemen and
pumpmen in the Panther Creek valley
reported for duty today. The places of
the men who obeyed the strike order
are rapidly being filled. The strike
leaders claim that the fact that a num
ber of the men remained at work was
due to a misunderstanding. On the
other hand, the officials of the com
pany maintain that they have the as
surance from the striking miners that
a sufficient number of men to run the
pumps will be furnished them.
Several carloads of Philadelphia and
Heading Coal and Iron company depu
ties are stationed at Lakeside, north
of here. All the men are armed and
are quartered In armored cars. Sev
eral engines, with steam up, are kept
at the place, so that the deputies may
be moved to any part of the region on
Pive Strangers Will Be Hustled
Away from Hazleton by Strik
By Exclusive Wire from Tire Associated Press.
Hazleton, June 2. Five non-union
men In charge of a coul company agent
who arrived here from Philadelphia on
the S.30 Lehigh Valley train tonight
were kldnupped amidst the greatest ex
citement by a committee of strikers,
who hustled them to strike headquur
ters. The men refused to give their names,
but said they had been engaged in
Philadelphia and had been j.oId that
they would be expected to act In the
capacity of watchmen ut J2.50 a day
With expenses. They say they were
asaured thut there wus no trouble In

the expense of the mine workers if they
express a desire to return.

President Invites Leaders to
Discuss Legislation and
By Exclusive Wire from Tho Associated Press.
Washington, June 2. A conference
was held .at the white house tonight
and was attended by leading Republi
cans of both houses, the president In
viting them to attend. There were
present Senators Allison, Aldrlch,
Hanna, Piatt, of Connecticut; and
Spooncr; Representatives Payne, Can
non, Dulzell, Babcock, Hull, Sherman
and Overstreet, and Postmaster Gen
Those present Included members of
the finance committee of the senate,
the ways and means committee of the
house, and of the Republican congress
ional campaign committee. The sub
jects under discussion were pending
legislation and Its relation to the com
The chief reason for the assemblage,
however, was the tariff, the discussion
turning on the advisability of attempt
ing any revision now or of taking up
the matter In committee during the re
cess of congress with a view to pre
senting a measure In the short session.
All of those present were decidedly op
posed 'to tariff revision either now or
at the short session, the view being ex
pressed that revision was unnecessary
and that furthermore thero was no
time for It.
The opinion prevailed at the confer
ence that any movement in the direc
tion of changes In the tariff schedules
would disturb business conditions and
complicate the coming campaign.
Suggestions as to tariff revision have
been made to the president by Repub
lican opponents of reciprocity with
Cuba, these congressmen representing
that to change the tariff on one prod
uct like sugar, affecting the beet sugar
Interests only without making changes
In other schedules would have a disas
trous effect In their states. Some mem
bers representing sugar states who
have seen the president recently, told
him that they were willing to have a
general tariff revision but were opposed
to a change on one article only, as
would be the practical effect of the
proposed Cuban reciprocity legislation.
The members of the campaign com
mittee present concurred In the view
that no tariff legislation was necessary
and moreover would be harmful. They
said they were confident of success on
the issues us made up and to' be made
up pending legislation.
Continued efforts will be made to
unite the Republicans of the senate on
the Spooner plan for a 20 per cent, re
duction to Cuba for five years, with
power given to the president to annul
the concession If It be found that It
goes to any persons other than the Cu
ban sugar growers and producers.

Thanks to Secretary Hay.
By Exclusive Wire from The Associated PrMS.
Washington, June 2. Little Interest,
either on the floor or fin the galleries,
was manifested In the senate debate on
the Philippine government bill today,
under the fifteen-minute rule. At two
or three stages It almost died of in
anition. Mr. Mason (Illinois), in a vig
orous speech, differed from the minor
ity In the treatment proposed for the
Filipinos. He urged that no reason ex
isted for according to' them a treat
ment different from that accorded to
the Cubans and strongly advised that
they be afforded the' right to govern
themselves. He said he would not have
voted for the Paris treaty but for the
open understanding among senators
that the Filipinos were to be given
their independence as soon as they were
ready for It.
Other senators who spoke today were
Mr. Hoar, Mr. Foraker, Mr. Cullom, Mr.
Bacon, Mr. Patterson, Mr. Teller, Mr.
Carmack and Mr. Proctor. .
Early in the session some amend
ments were made to the Philippine com
mittee, the most Important o'f which re
lated to the disposition of the public
lands In the Islands.
The house today, by a vote of 129 to
46, suspended the rules and adopted the
Joint resolution extending the thanks of
congress to Secretary of State John
Hay for his address on the occasion of
the McKInley memorial exercises last
February. Unanimous consent 'for the
consideration of this resolution was ob
jected to by Mr. D&Arn'iond (Missouri)
some time ago, and today Mr. Clark
(Missouri) made a twenty-minute
speech in opposition to Its adoption, on
the ground that Mr. Hay had abused
the occasion by injecting a "Republican
stump speech" Into the address. Gen
eral Hooker (Wisconsin), a one-armed
Confederate veteran, delivered an elo
quent defense of Mr. Hay's address, de
claring that it did not contain anything
objectionable from a political stand
point. Many Democrats voted with Mr.
Clark against the resolution.
The anti-anarchist bill was lightly
touched upon. Tho house bill to en
courage salmon culture In Alaska was
defeated on motions to pass them under
suspension of the rules.

MIXED PEELINGS AT HAGUE.
Begret Is Expressed at Lobs of Boer
By Excluilre Wire from The Associated Tretf.
Tho Hague, June 2. The news of the
conclusion of peace in South Africa wns
received here with very mixed feelings.
While there Is general satisfaction that
the war is ended, unvarying regret Is
expressed at the loss of Boer Independ
ence!, The Boer delegates here are In a par
ticularly trying position. It has been
learned upon good authority that the
British government at the last moment
refused to allow the Boers in South
Africa to communicate with their lead
ers In Europe; thus the delegates on the
continent were entirely shut out of the
negotiations and were ignorant even of
the terms of surrender, except as they
learned of them through the news
A Dutch official, referring to the news
from South Africa, said: '
"The delegates made a great mistake
in not complying with the ardent wish
of the Dutch government at the time of
the overtures made by Dr. Kuyper, the
premier, which was that they apply for
safe conducts to South Africa."
NARKED BY RIOT
Numerous Eights Between Police,
Strikers and Sympathizers in
By Exclusive Wire from The Associated Press.
Chicago, June 2. Riot and bloodshed
marked the progress of the teamsters'
strike today. There were numerous
fights between the police and the strik
ers and their sympathizers. Street car
traffic was stopped while the fighting
went on, the police and employes of
the packing companies were stoned and
at one place ""when surrounded by a
dense crowd of men and women, the
police, fifty strong," under the command
of Lieutenant Collins, maddened by the
numerous stones with which they had
been pelted, drew their revolvers and
charged full Into the crowd, which
showed no disposition to retreat. Stones
and clubs were brought Into requisi
tion by the strikers and the police used
their batons and the butt ends of re
volvers freely. When this fight was
over, there were a number of strikers
needing surgical attendance. None
was dangerously injured as far as
known, however, and the wounded
strikers were carried off by their
friends. The fighting began on the
west side shortly after noon and In dif
ferent parts of the city continued prac
tically all of the afternoon. The most
seriously trouble of the day occurred
at Crosby street In a district known as
"little hell." A detachment of police
men was escorting a number of wagons
loaded with meat for downtown sta
tions and driven by non-union men.
Drivers of other teams would purpose
ly drive In the way of the meat wagons
to block them and great hooting
crowds would gather around the wag
ons. The police were forced to club
back the mob many times and were
themselves frequently struck with
stones. The wagons finally reached
their destinations after a number of
arrests had been made. There were
many broken heads.
Tonight at Twelfth and State street,
a big mob overpowered three policemen
who were escorting several meat wag
ons. The rioters clambered Into the wag
ons and threw the meat Into the street.
A riot call brought a big force of po
licemen who succeeded in dispersing
the mob and rescuing the meat which
was reloaded. "The wagons were then
safely escorted to their destination.
Some dozen arrests were made.
