Work Started In Every Department
at the Oxford and Gauuaa Main
Ill with Old Employees.
Peoples Coal Company and the Dela
ware, Lackawanna & Western
Company Each Succeed in Getting
a Colliery in Operation Large
Crowd Assemble, but No Violence

pany About Beady to Start Work
at tho Dickson and the Delaware,

in Shape to Begin Work at the Von
Storch Mass Meeting at the Bound
Woods Today, to Be Addressed by
President Mitchell.
Two collieries, yesterdny, resumed nc
tlve operations In every department.
cutting, loading, hoisting nnd cleaning.
They were the Oxford operated by the
People's Coul company, and the Cayuga,
operated by the Delaware, Lackawanna
& Western company.
Crowds of strikers and their sym
pathizers gathered ut ouch colliery
and mudc some effort to prevent the
men from going to work, but these ef
forts were not attended with any dis
order. To prevent possible disorder
Sheriff Schadt was at the Cayuga nnd
a squad of city police were on hand to
reinforce the coal and Iron police at the
Neither company would give out the
exact number of men at work. Super
intendent Crawford of the People's com
pany suld the number at the Oxford
was more than 120, and Superintendent
Tobey of the Delaware, Lackawanna &
Western said the Cayuga force number
ed more than half a hundred.
Many of the men composing the force
at the Oxford are old employes, but the
greater part of them are men whom
Piesident Crawford personally recruit
ed from 'the ranks of the old Simpson
& Watkins employes, in various towns
up an down the valley.
Former Oxford employes have told
President Crawford that the Oxford
local Is to vote today on the question
of returning to work In a body. Some
of them, his informants state, have
declared that whether or not the local
votes to return to work, they will re
port for duty, Monday. These men say
they arc satisfied the miners can not
win, and that It is sheer nonsense to
continue the fight longer with nothing
in sight except the loss of good places
with a company against which they
never had a grievance.
Not much success was achieved In
getting out coal at the Oxford. Machin
ery broke down twice causing long de
lays, and the operations In the breaker
were hampered by the fact that the
"chutes" were so stiff it required a big
force of men to feed the cal to the
new mechanical slate-pickers, with
which the breaker has been supplied
since the strike began. The stiffness of
the chutes was due In a great measure
to the fact that they were bespattered
with the mineral paint with which the
breaker was recently covered Inside and
out, and which proved to be worse than
rust In retarding the sliding of tho coal.
It has such wearing qualities that ef
forts to scrape it away prove futile,
It will only be removed by being grad
ually worn away by the sliding coal.
The miners were also hampered by
a scarcity of cars. The Delaware,
Lackawanna & Western company,
however came to the People's company's
assistance and delivered a large con
signment of cars at the Oxford last
night. They will be distributed to the
miners this morning and made use of
until the People's company can empty
the hundieds of cars now waiting at
the "foot" to be hoisted and their con
tents sent through the breaker.
Superlntedent Crawford takes excep
tion to the statement of an afternoon
paper that the force at the Oxford was
made up of non-union men. He de
clares positively that ninety-five per
cent of them are members of the United
Mine Workers, and that today, tomor
row nnd next Monday will see lurge
acquisitions to their numbers.
The men working at the Cayuga, ac
cording to Superintendent Tobey, ure
all Delaware, Lackawanna & Western
employes. Most of them worked at the
Cayugu. The others ore from the ad
jacent Delaware, Lackawanna & Wes
tern mines In North Scrnnton. "There
Is not un Import among them," de
clared Mr, Tobey, "and as fur as I
know every man of them Is a member
of the United Mine Workers."
Only seven of the men who started
for work at the Cayuga were turned
.buck by the strikers' pickets.- All
seven reported later for work.,
Tho Cayuga like all the Delaware,
Lackawanna & Western collieries Is
supplied with mechanical slate pickers
and Its underground haulage Is dope in
a great measure by electricity,
There Is a large force of men at the
Von Storch nnd opetatlons there are
likely to bo resumed at uny time.
Superintendent Tobey; said Inst even
ing: "We have other collieries In Just
as good It not better shape for resum
ing than cither the Cayuga or Von
Storch, nnd they will be started In duo
time. This Is the beginning of the

ware & Hudson company would stnrt

denied It. "Wo have been cutting and

two weeks" he said, "but have not
hoisted any as yet. When we will
start the breaker has not been de
cided." Superintendent Rose stated that nt
other collieries of the Delaware &
Hudson good sized forces of old em
ployes are working underground, cut
ting and loading coal, and that it will
not be long probably, before they will
be sending out coal.
The statement that No. 5 colliery of
tho Pennsylvania Coal company Is
about to start up Is positively denied.
The Pennsylvania company has no Jm
medlate and definite prospects of start
ing up a colliery, but like the other
companies expects that the men will
not hok",' out much longer and re
sumption will be possible with good
sized forces.

The full and exact' text of the tem
porary Injunction granted In the case
of Gauley Mountain Coal company
against G, W. Purcell and others by
Judge B. F. Keller is here appended
This Is the injunction which It Is nl
leged forbade the distribution of sup
plies t'o the West Virginia strikers, and
which was so roundly condemned by
President Mitchell of the United Mine
Workeis. A perusal of the opinion will
show that the condemnation was,
founded on false misrepresentations,
conveyed In early and Incomplete re
ports of the Injunction. The Injunction
reads ns follows:
This dny the complainant In this suit by
its counsel presented to tho court Its bill
of complaint against Q, W. Purcell, W.

Until further order of this court are fur

thereof In nnd about the mines and works
of the said plaintiff and at such public
places as tho plaintiff may direct.
And tho motion for permanent Injunc
tions is set down for hearing at Charles
ton on the 18th day of November, 1902.
Thirteenth Begiment Held in Readi
ness for Sudden Call Large Sup
ply of Ammunition on Hand.
If tho Thirteenth regiment was to be,
today, ordered to Join the Twelfth und
Eighth regiments, in preserving order
in the Shenandoah district, the call
would find the Scranton guardsmen
prepared to leave home instantly.
All tents and equipment have been
ciiiefully packed, and are in readiness
for instant transfer, and the only de
lay which would be encountered in case
of a sudden call, would be the com
paratively trifling one which lies In the'
gathering together of the men.
The regiment is amply prepared for
trouble, in the matter of ammunition.
Each company has Its reserve of one
thousand rounds, and In ndditlon there
Is a large amount of powder and ball
on hand, which have been supplied for
work at the range.
The regiment Itself has seldom been
In better condition than at present.
The officers, both stuff nnd line, are
exceedingly competent soldiers, most of
whom have niready seen service, In the
suppression of strikes, and in the Spanish-American
-war, and the men are
uniformly well disciplined, a.lert and

All Were Inclined to the Belief That
This Region Has Had Much' More
Than Its Share of Wetness. Lately,
but the Weatherman Declares the
Precipitation Has Not, Beee Very
Much Above the Genoral Average.
Some Figures on the Amount of
Although Scrnntonlnns arc Inclined to
believe this city has had more than Its
fair share of rain this summer, nnd to
think that u cessation of moisture
would be duly appreciated, "Weather
Observer Clarke declares that the local
rainfall has not been very much above
the general average, and adds that
there Is too general a tendency on the
part of people to cavil at the weather.
"For Instance," he remarked, yester
day. "You can hear people complain
ing every time It rains that there must
have been a cloudburst somewhere
around here, and mournfully bewailing
the fact that It has rained every day
this month. Now that's a fallacy. We
have had as many as ten days In July
on which not a single drop of moisture
fell, and two days on which the down
fall was hardly perceptible, as it was
less than one-hundredth of an Inch."
He the,n produced some records of the
weather bureau, and proceeded to com
pare local figures with general statls
tics. He ascertained from these that
the average amount of rain which falls
during the months of March, April,
Mny, June and July Is 17.33 inches.
During these five months, which aio
properly known as the growing season,
when much rain Is naturally expected
and desired, Scranton has been blessed
with a downpour of 18.03 Inches, which
Is 4 per cent, above the average.
In. the month of June the rain fell
pretty, steadily and frequently, with
the consequence that there are C.tiD
Inches of rain on record for .that month,
which is over three inches above tho
average amount of June moisture.
In May, however, there was little
doing In the way of wetness, and tho
local figures of 1.61 fell two Inches short
of what wns expected. The other
months were about average. The usual
downpour for July Is 4.33 Inches, and
In pplte of the fact that the skies have
appeared to weep throughout this en
tire month, Mr. Clarke's records show
that there have been but 4.32 Inches of
rain, which is slightly below the aver
age. Heavy rains are, however, expected
during August by the weather officials.
It Is u month of thunder showers.whlch
are largely caused by the heat. Theie
have been few days when the rain fell
steadily nnd continuously, but the
downpour has come generally in hard,
driving sheets. Several smnll storms
took place during the month, and on
two occasions a rather heavy fall of
hall accompanied tho rain.
These storms have had the effect of
Interfering materially with city Im
provements, nnd Director of Public
Works John E. Roche stated yesterday
to a Tribune mnn that In no month of
the year bus so much damage been
done by rains ns In July.
"Comparatively few damage claims
have been lodged ngalnst the city,"
said he, "but a great number of ie
ports have been made of flooded cellars,
owing to tho over-snturated condition
of the earth,
"Sewer basins have been choked to
overflowing, nnd whereas wo formerly
needed only three equipments for work
on cleaning sewers, wo now nre forced
to use seven, nnd .much larger gangs
of men. Tho rains Interfere partlcu
laily with recent paves and repalis.
"Work upon tho new sewer on Wyo
mlnsr avenue has been sorlously Inter
fered with, and, In fact, tho ruins have
culled halt to nearly all city Improve,
ments, as no new work con be stinted,
while we are busied making repairs on
old .Jobs." ,
