"There's a man that makes a rattling

marked one of the gucstR nt Major

then looked around llercely to see It
anyone was going to chnllengc his as
sertion, None did, however, nnd tho harmony
of the occasion therefore remained Un
broken, The genernl opinion was that
Lieutenant Davis' admirer was right,
for tho adjutant of the Second bat
talion had been distinguishing himself
throughout tho gathering by a series of
llghtnlng-llko thrusts and parries, sharp
and clever sullies, often personal, but,
though occasionally biting, never of
fensive. In addition to being npt as a toast
muster, Lieutenant Davis Is also "all
there," when It conies to soldiering. He
was formerly a lleutennnt In Company
F, when that command wits the West
Scranton company of the regiment, nnd
he Is both recognized as an efllclent
soldier by his superior olllcers and Is
popular with the men In the ranks.

fifteen years ago he entered into a co
partnership with J. H. Kelly under tho
firm name of Kelly & Henley, conduct
ing, a wholesale dry goods business on

President J. L. Crawford, of the
People's Coal company, yesterday gave
out nn interesting letter regarding his
company's experiences during tho
strike nnd Its Intentions to resume
operations. He says:
Scranton, Pa., July 2S, 1902.
I notice by the press reports, If Mr.
Nichols Is quoted correctly, that he says
that 1 was binding when I Issued tho
notice to our former employes that the
Oxford colliery Intended to start up in
tho near future. I emphatically deny thu
chnrge, but ncknovledgo thnt 1 may bu
mistaken. 1 suppose Mr. Nichols has
based his argument on what ho has been
able to prevent mo from doing In the
past three mouths, and I also acknowl
edge that ho has put me to great expense
nnd Inconvenience by the tactics that
he hns used. I will also make n plain
acknowledgment of some of tho Incon
veniences he has put mo to. I will nlso
acknowledge that he has caused me to
change tho details of many of my plnns
In order to counteract his great Influ
ence. I will nlso acknowledge everything
thnt has been done Inside of our feneo
In tho past three months and nlso con
fess what I expect to do.
My experience In the past has taught
mo to be frank In my dealings with nil
men, and If 1 made n mistake throtish
error of Judgment or neglect of duty, my
cnslest way out of It was to acknowledge
It. I will nlso acknowledge that my trou
bles began light after the executive board
meeting In Scranton when the temporary
suspension was declared. As there was a
small squeeze In one portion of tho mines
at that time, I had men timbering and
lagging It up, which Mr. Theophllus Phil
lips tried to stop before the Hazleton
convention had convened.
We have It from tho lips of Mr. Phil
lips that when they wero at tho Sha
mokln convention that he took tho floor
and said that ho was proud to represent
a local that had no grievances. And I am
not nwaro of conditions changing be
tween the Shamokln convention nnd tho
Hazleton convention, notwithstanding his
actions in trying to stop tho timbermen.
I also acknowledge thnt Mr. Nichols
and his associates huvo continued to nn
noy our steam men. When I went
around to seo who was going to con
tinue to work, when tho engineers nnd
firemen were called out, I was Invariably
told by all tho men that they wore satis
fied with their present conditions ot work
and the wages desplto the fact that tho
union officials had notified them If they
wero to continue to work and .save my
property from destruction that when tho
strike was over they would not be al
lowed to work around the colliery. I also
acknowledge I was sure that tho of
ficials oftho union would have nothing
to say when tho time came. Tho men
wero willing to sign a contract, tho gist
of which was that they agreed to work
under tho present conditions of work
nnd at their present occupation nnd
wages or at any other work that might
bo designated by tho superintendent. On
my part I agreed to employ them for a
definite length of time, and at any timo
I could not employ them I agreed to pay
them their wages for the length of time
they were ready for employment.
I nlso acknowledge that Mr. Nichols
has succeeded in forcing threo of my
men to break their contract. First was
a fireman who was tho only support of a
widowed mother.' Sir. Nichols, or those
ho sent to her, told her thnt the son
would bo killed If ho continued to work
nnd nlso tried to scare tho son by meet
ing him on the roads nnd making threats.
The mother went Into hysterics, nnd this
annoyance was continued until tho son
thought best to quit work. Next wns a
young mnn who was annoyed contlnunlly
nt his boarding placo and consequently
had to leave work, because ho could not
find another placo. The third was nn
extra man,, nround the placo, who was
forced to break his contract on account
of fear of bodily harm. In fact, nil of
our men havo been stopped on tho rond
or have been forced to walk blocks
around to keep out of danger.
I acknowledge that tho first lot of for
eigners that came here after wc started
tho rock work were expected on an even
ing train and 1 had men to conduct them
from tho depot to tho mines, and through
falluro to rnnke connections at AVllkes
Barre they did not arrive on that train,
and wo supposed they wero not coming.
But tho men arrived on a later trnln,
nnd as only ono had ever been to our
mines before, they came up tho railroad
switch. When they passed the crossing
nt Scranton street your sympathizers fol
lowed them, coming with their bundles,
and after they had gotten on our prop
erty outside of the fenco tho pursuers
stoned them nnd hit several, some ot
whom nro laid up yet. But they went
on nnd got Inside ot the feneo and I ac
knowledge that theso men were some
what scared, being In a strange town
In the middle ot tho night, with soveral
of tholr number Injured and somo had
lost their belongings. A part of them
only stayed until about 1 o'clock in the
morning; we dressed their wounds tho
best wo could nnd six of thb number left.
Wo got them to tho depot unknown to
nny of your pickets and sent them homo.
Part of theso who havo recovered from
their Injuries nnd nro alio to work have
returned. Tho others that wero unin
jured stayed right along.
I acknowledge that since wo havo start
ed rock work that this nnnoynnco has
been continued nnd n number of men
havo been kept front woik through
threats and promise of relief, I also ac
knowledge that al but threo of these
men, not having received their relief,
havo returned to work. I also acknowl
edge thnt many havo been boycotted in
different ways', nnd In all cases I hava
tho names of nil tho men who havo been
boycotted, nnd In many rases tho names
of the parties thut havo made threats,
I do not havo to go hack nny further
than this morning to glvo you tho names
of somo of the parties that made threats,
As early as 4 o'clock your pickets were
on tho ground watching to stop anybody
that might approach tho mines, Tho
three that wero stationed nt tho corner
of Tenth and Scmnton Btreots tiled In
several Instances to stop tho men pass
ing, but I also had pickets out nnd pre
vented them. Theso three men, whoso
names we havo, told ono of our guards
"If they had tho pang hero this morning
that they expected ho nnd n lot morn
would bo hanging from a telegraph pole."
I acknowledge that I was awnro thero
was a gang organized to mob tho placo
this morning, but tho only ones that ap
peared wero 'General Coxer," Colonel
Walsh and threo or four more of tho off
fleers, but nono of the privates of
"Coxcy's Aims"' put In their appearance.
I hereby warn "General Coxey'1 to keep
off tho scats.
, I acknowledge thut I know nosltlvelv
that thero wero only nlno men in the Ox
ford oiiJ that voted fo," strike, and
nmoni: theso nine men thero wero ex-
employes who had been discharged for
disobeying rules of tho mine, nnd I can
not see any reason why nlno nlbti out of
300 or 400 should keep my placo Idle. I
also acknowledge thnt all 1 ask Is fair
1 nlso acknowledge that from my more
than thirty yonrs' experience around tho
mines thnt I rcnllicd Inst fall that this
strike would tnko place In tho near fu
ture nnd 1 commenced preparing for It,
I acknowledge that I put a good substan
tial fence around my property, that I
erected nn electric light plant, thut I
strung wire around tho fenco and 1 dis
tributed tho lights In such a wny that
every foot of tho fence is maclo light
duilng tho night. 1 nlso acKiiowlcdgo
thut I havo guards walking around this
fenco nil hours of tho night with Win

edge thnt In tho day tlmo 1 have tho

I nlso acknowledge that I havo detec

We have It lighted with electric lights;
also havo electric fans for ventilation

edge that 1 am now equipping another

ply who en n't get board, I have other
buildings that I can equip, and I will do
It. I acknowledge that wo havo a good

them licensed to carry weapons nnd have
furnished them with revolvers nftd In tho
morning when coming to work they de
posit their revolvers In the office and get
them ngnln when going home. I also ac
knowledge that I have guns, and If they
think their revolvers aro not largo
enough I can furnish them with those.
ASHAMED OF CONDITIONS.
1 acknowledge that I, as a free born

I seo no improvement in your organi

old Miners' union and worked In nnd
around tho mines until that union was
out of existence, nnd have since been

don't seo nny difference in regard to
their trying to dictate tho policies ot
working the mines, and wo wero Just ns

While there has been great improve

of the region to another nnd in tho modo
of traveling from ono placo to another,
I do not see any Improvements that have
been gotten up by tho modern ngitator.
In tho olden days wo used to havo all
our meetings In tho open nlr nnd every
body was at liberty to go and hear what
was being said and done. I venture to
say that I can tell more now what has
been going on Inside of the doors of tho
Oxford local and several other locals
than I could In tho days when I stood In

NOT LOOKING FOR TROUBLE.
I ncknowledge from tho foregoing

that I am not. It would look to tho out

There has been no peace In this region

assure you that I shall continue to float
