HOW RELIEF IS
TO BE DIVIDED
DISTRIBUTION IS NOT TO
MADE PBO BATA.
President Nicholls Discusses the In
dinnnpolig Convention and Botioves
tho Strikers Aro Now in a Position
to Fight for the Granting of All
Their Demands Is Not in Favor of
Wasting- Any Energy in nn Effort
to Stop Soft Coal from Entering
tho Anthracite Bogion.
The big relief fund for the striking
miners Is not to bo distributed pro rata,
but according to the men's needs, says
District President Nicholls, who re
turned yesterday from the Indianapolis
The plan at present being followed In
distributing relief will be continued,
Mr. Nicholls says, This plan docs not'
contemplate tho distribution of any
money whatever. Instead, the relief
committees df tho various locals will
receive applications for assistance and
meet these applications by furnishing
what groceries and other supplies tho
wants of the applicant and tho condi
tion of tho fund muv warrant.
Tho boards of the different districts
will devise plans of their own for an
plying tho fund. Tho board of this dis
trict will have a meeting for this pur
pose In the course of a few days.
President Nicholls is satisfied that the
fund will be amply sulllclent to com
fortably support the strikers, and that
It will be continued as long as the
strike lasts, no matter If it was on a
Some of the locals still have as much
as $2,500 In their treasuries, Mr. Nli-h-
olls nays, and, will not call for help from
the general fund for some Mime. Every
day sees additional miners securing
temporary employment hcie or else
where, and before many weeks a go"od
Percentage of them will be self-qupport-Ing.
Thousands of them have gone to
other coal Holds and thousands of
others were only deterred from follow
ing them by the fear that the strike
was to be made general.. Now, that it
Is known there will be no strike in the
soft coal regions and that the anthra
cite strike and the opening of many
new mines In Ohio and West Virginia
Is making plenty of work there, tho
younger men, and particularly the
laborers, will go thither In large num
bers. A DOUBLE GOOD.
This, Mr. Nicholls explains, w ill effect
a double good, because it will avoid t lie
drain they would make on the relief
fund and Increase the number of con
Tho fund, Mr. Nicholls points out,
will not rely alone on the contributions
levied by the Indianapolis convention.
Local unions all through the bitumin
ous regions have sent word that they
will at onco make voluntary donations
of goodly proportions from their tieas
uries. One local in Illinois, which has
$7,000 in its treasury, has already voted
to give every cent of it to their anthra
cite brethren. Trades unions all over
the country will make donations from
their treasuries, besides levying weekly
contributions on their members. Con
tributions will also come from Ling
land, and as Ben Tillett has given as
surance that tho British workmen will
do tho handsome tiling, it can be taken
for granted it will be handsome. Tho
whole world of unionism realizes that
this light must be won and proposes
that It shall not be lost, If money can
save the day.
"There isn't a thing more to be de
sired," enthusiastically declared Mr.
Nicholls. "Our position is perfection
Itself. The fight is as good as won. I
can not now see any possibility of our
losing. Our position is now so strong
that I, for one, would not favpr settling
the strike until every one of our de
mands are granted. Before the Indian
apolis convention it would have been
possible for tho operators to settle the
strike by granting 1,01410 of the de
mands. I firmly believe now that we
should hold out for everything wo have
asked. Previously we would have been
content with a victory. Now wo arc in
a position to completely rout the enemy
and I think wo ought to be satisfied
with nothing short of that. Tho oper
ators declared for a tight to a finish."
UP TO THE OPEUATOnS.
Regarding tho matter of preventing
soft coal fiom being shipped into the
anthracite region, Mr. Nicholls said he
did not believe the miners should con
cern themselves about this; that It was
the anthracite operators who wore tho
ones to be concerned. If solt coal comes
here It will hurt the strikers.' eain-c. of
course, .but It will hurt the operators
mure, .ur. .-icnous contends. To liavo
their competitors supplying their trade,
and possibly capturing a good portion
of It permanently, will have a tendency,
he thought, to help bring tho operators
Mr, Nicholls referred to a despatch
from Indianapolis quoting him as being
m nivor or a general strike and denied
that ho had ever made such a declara
tion. "I was never in favor of ,-i gen
eral strike,'- said he, "and was pre
pared to light It with all my strength
on tho Hour of the convention. The
sentiment of the anthracite miners was
against a general strike, in fact there
was hardly any sentiment whatever In
favor of the proposition. The thing
was uovcr seilously considered."
Efforts aro being mado by the strike
leaders to prevent the opening up of
the Oxford colliery of the People's Coal
company. Pickets aro posted at tho
various approaches to the stockndo
gates and when a .workman comes
along he Is held up and efforts made to
persuade him to turn buck.
Tho thlrty-llvo men who went to work
at the Oxford, Monday, aro Italians.
They aro being quartered nt the col
llery. An Kalian organizer of tho
United Mine Workers endeavored to
communicate with them yestetduy, hut
was unsuccessful. The Italian consular
iigcnt, F, Tlscar, has beeti appealed to,
by tho strike leaders, to uso his Inilu
epco to prevent his countrymen from
taking the btrlkers' places.
Preparations aro under way to re
sumo operations at the Ontailo ami
Western company's Archbald washeiy,
but Interfeicnee on the part of-the bor
ough authorities niay cause tho com
pany some unexpected delay,
The water used at the washery is
secured trom a drain currying a small
natural stream thiough the town to tho
liver, The borough built tho drain, and
Burgess Burko asserts that tho com
pany has no right to tako tho water
without permission of tho borough fiu
thoiitles. Until that permission Is se
cured, tho burscss says ho will prevent
me company from using tho water.

whom .the soldiers felt they owed much.
In realizing the project of this week of
military life In tho beautiful rural spot
which was their temporary home.
The bishop was greeted, therefore,
with the feeling that one would hold
towards a benefactor. There was a
noticeable response among the men
during the day; they wore more active
and alert in the drill movements and
easily made the best showing of tho
week. When Bishop Hoban, at the con
clusion of the icview, delivered a kind
message to the lancers, they glowed'
with appreciation. A pleasant surprise
In his talk was the announcement of
his intention to present the regiment
with a silk flag.
After thfc bishop's departure, tho holi
day spirit took hold of the men. Col
onel Phillips, responding to tho tone of
feeling, relaxed .somewhat and from 3
o'clock tho lanceis were away from the
enmp and were scattered through the
grove, enjoying various diversions.
During most of tho afternoon, Colonel
Phillips, Rev. J. V. Moylan, the chap

tested gaiuo of ball between "sides" of

by Rev. P. J. Mc-Maiius, of Green

band, met the bishop at tho depot and
led tho way to tho pavilion. Dinner,
which was ready, was served and after
a short social season, the bishop and
the accompanying priests, together
with Chaplain Moylan, Major McNlch

the launch and hW a delightful ride
around the wood-lined lake.
The Inspection of camp by the bishop
followed. Then came tho event of the
day, tho battalion 'drill nnd dress
parade, Tho pavilion, which is an ac
ceptable substitute for the damp dilll

entire Northeastern Pennsylvania re

month twenty recruits were sent away
by the local station, and every man
was a resident of this city. Tiie July
roster, however, shows a goodly per
centage of Wilkcs-Baneans, who aro
now learning the joys of a "rooky's"
The enlisting bureau formerly had a

Tho ofllces at Hnzleton and Towanda

William L. Kagan, of Forest City,
was the first July recruit. He was as
signed to the Twenty-third infantry,
which is now stationed at the Platts

Ernest Brown, another Wllkes-Barre-an,

Hawiey A. Gould, of 702 Adams ave

ONLY ONE DEATH.
Smallpox Is Far from Being a Very
Fatal Disease, According to
Eci anion's Experience.
That smallpox is far from being a
very fatal disease Is shown by an ex
amination of tho reports of Secretary
Sweeney, of the bureau of health.
The present epidemic broke out hi
January of this year. Tliatinonth theio
were six cases reported. February had
five; March, none; April, 10; May, 16;
June, 11, and July, thus far, 4. Out of
a total of fifty cases only one deuth
occurred, making tho percentage of
deaths smaller than that for anv con
tagious disease that bus prevailed dur
ing the name period. The one death
was that of tho Brace child, In West
Scranton, mid the fatal termination of
tho case was due In a measure to tho
fact that its character was not early
Tho disease Is still prevalent, but Is
being gradually stamped out. The four
cases reported this mouth are In the
same community In North Scranton.
The nine oatlcnts In tho emergency
hospital aro all doing well and recovery
Is confidently expected In each Instance.
To the efllclent manner In which tho
health authorities luivo coped with the
disease Is attributable In some degree
the small percentage of deaths, but tli
primary explanation o tho small num
ber of deaths Is found 'in thqf.nrt that
smullpox is not a very fatal disease.
