IT WAS NOT GENERALLY
Eighty Per Cent, of V,, L. & V?,. Co.'s
Engineers, Firemen And Pumprun
ners Remained at Work Perhaps
Fifty Per Cent, of the firemen

Out Nlcholls Satisfied with Slt-
The order of the United Mine
Vorkers, effective yesterday, calling
out tho engineers, pump-runners and
firemen, If they wore not granted nn
eight-hour day without decrease In
wurpf, was not very generally obeyed
In the Lackawanna region. Probably
fifty per cent, of tho firemen quit work,
but tho engineers and pump-runners,
an a rule, remained at work. There
were many rumors of violence, and
two reports of shootlnc affrays, but all
melted Into nlr when Investigated. The
proclamation of Sheriff Schadt and
the Instructions of the Mine workers'
olllclals to all strikers to religiously ob
serve tho law had their effect In pre
venting disorder. T;ie companies
claim that the places of the strikers
were filled Immediately. The United
Mine Workers officials say they are
confident the men who remained at
work will come out In tho course of a
Superintendent Itcese A. Phillips, of
tho Delaware, Lackawanna and 'VVest
crn mining department, stated that
eighty per cent, of their men icmained
at work and that practically all of tho
twenty per cent, that quit were fire
men. Only two engineers quit, he said,
and these were inside men, for whom
the company has no Immediate use,
because of the fact that the planes
arc not being operated. In the first
of the Lackawanna's five districts,
which includes the Storrs Nos. , 2 and
3, the Diamond, TJrlsbln and Cayuga
collieries, not a single mjn quit work,
it Is claimed. The firemen who went
out arc scattered throughout the other
four districts. The company had men
ready to take the strikers' places and
as a result there was no difficulty
whatever experienced as a result of
the strike order.
CONDITIONS THE SAME.
Vlth the Delaware and Hudson com
pany practically the same conditions
prevailed. General Superintendent
Uose said that while there was only
about a third of their regular force of
firemen at work, tho engineers and
pump-runners remained at their posts
almost to a man. The places of those
who quit were promptly filled by men
recruited from the ranks of the em
ployes who did not belong to tho union,
such as teamsters, inspectors, fire
bosses and the like. These latter will
be gradually relieved by men who are
to be engaged permanently.
Tl.p Erie inpn, according to General
Manager V. A. May, kept faith with
the company. They notified the super
intendents they would continue at
work, and they did. At the collieries
about and north of Scranton, the fire
men as well as the engineers and
pump-runners ignored the strike or
der. The Ontario and Western men had
decided by a vote of 58 to 46 to obey
tho strike order, and did so very gen
erally. Some engineers and pump-runners
remained at work. The company
claims It succeeded In filling the places
of all the strikers by drafting the fire
bosses, Inspectors and the like.
Superintendent S. B. Tnorno, of the
Temple Iron company, made the state
ment that in 'the four collieries located
In the Lackawanna region, the percent
age of men who quit was not large,
but in the four collieries in the Lu
zerne district" there was a general obe
dience of the strike order. No attempt
was made to supply the places of the
men who qultat the Banylon colliery in
Duryea. The veins being operated
there are all above the water level and
the coal Is taken out by way of a
Lehigh Valley company's adjacent col
liery. No harm can come to the mine
or adjoining workings by allowing It to
1U up to the water level, so the com
pany closed down the pumps, pulled
the fires and boarded up the boiler
- HAD TO GET OTHER MEN.
J,t was necessary to secure men from
The outside to man the pumps and
boilers at the Forty Fort and Parry
E. collieries of the Temple company, at
Wyoming. Superintendent Thorny
went down yesterday afternoon with
f'fteen Imports secured through the
Drummond agency, and led by one of
the Drummond superintendents, Sev
pi al of them wore street car men's uni
forms. Imported men, some of them Drum
mon.il strike breakers, and some Pln
kerton detectives, are'reported to have
arrived at various places In the Lacka
wanna region during the past three
clays. Thirty arrived In Forest City
yesterday and being refused accommo
dations at Cunningham's hotel, were
cared for at tho homes of tho mine
bosses. Shanties are being built for
them Inside the limits of the colliery
President T, D. Nlcholls, of District
No, 1, said yesterday that he was en
tirely satisfied with the situation.
Fully ninety-five per cent, of the tire
men and seventy-five percent of the
steam men have obeyed the strike or
der, ho claimed. Ho also expressed the
belief that the men remaining at work
will bo found In the ranks of the
strikers before the week Is over.
It is understood the Mine Workeis
do not propose to intercept the men
still at work, while they are going to
or from tho mines, but wait on them
at their homes with small cbmmlttees
and endeavor to quietly induce them to
remain away from work.
Reports were circulated several
times yesterday of outbreaks at var
ious places and one persistent rumor
had it that a man had been shot at the
Cayuga or Brlsbtn. Close Inquiry
failed to find a single disturbance.
Th5 companies uniformly announced
that all men who went out oh strike
yesterday will not bo re-employed un
der any circumstances.
MR. LOOMIS IN THE CITY,
E. E, Loomls, general manager of the
Delaware,, Lackawanna and Western
coal mining department, caino up from
New York, yesterday, und spent the
day with Superintendent Reese A. Phil
lips and Assistant Superintendent C. E.
Frank T. Hawley, national president
of the switchmen's union, was In the
city yesterday, but tho purpose of his
visit was not disclosed. It is believed,
however, that ho Is here to take up with
the local switchmen the question of
handling wnshery and soft conl.
District President Nlcholls and Com
mitteeman M. F. Hcaley addressed a
largo mass meeting of United' Mine
Workers at Jessup, yesterday after
noon, Superintendent W, F. Robertson, of
tho Dolph Coal company, denies the
statement that his company has grant

the engineers, firemen and pumprun

Ohio coal regions, left yesterday on the

In a saturnalia of rejoicing over the
news from South Africa, the telegra
phic nerve system of the empire
throbbed responslvely. From Canada
and Jamaica, In the west, and from
India and Australia, In the east, came
messages of congratulation and re
ports of local rejoicings. Gibraltar,
Malta, Cairo, Bombay and Melbourne
each, In turn, recorded the enthusiasm
with which the news of peace was re
ceived. From the comment also there
came announcements of satisfaction,
springing not so much from joy at
Great Btitnln's triumph as from feel
ings ofprellef that tho long tension was
over and the belief that the era of
peace portended a trade tevlval and a
return to normal conditions.
