Is Quiet General Gobin's Crcter.
By Exclusho Wire from The Associated 1'rcss.
Shenandoah, Aug. 1. This was an
uneventful day in Shenandoah and sur
rounding country. Absolute quiet con
. tlnues to prevail everywhere, and the
general feeling of uneasiness Is rapidly
disappearing. The troops spent the
day in perfecting their camp arrange
ments and comparatively few of them
were In town. None are permitted out
of camp after dark.
There was much sympathy expressed
today by the elUzons generally over
the death last night of Joseph Beddall
as a result of Injuries iccclvcd In the
riot of "Wednesday night. He was well
known In the business community. His
funeral will take place on Monday af
ternoon, and he will be buried with
Masonic honors. The Rev. W. H. Stew
art, of the 'William Penn Methodist
Episcopal church, who will have charge
of the religious services at the funeral,
said today that Beddall on his death
bed denied that he was carrying am
munition to his brother, Thomas, the
deputy sheriff, who was oesieged in
the raihoad htatlon where the trouble
occurred. It had been reported by some
unknown persons that he had several
boxes of pistol cartridges in his pocket
which he was trying to deliver to his
'hi other, and that as a result of this,
the crowd attacked him. The Injured
man said ho did not go there to pro
tect his brother, but that his only
thought was for his brother's safety.
The inquest on the death of Beddall
was begun today, and after four wit
nesses had been examined the further
taking of te&tlmony was postponed un
til next Thursday. According to the
testimony of Dr. J. ( Blddle, of the
Mlneis' hospital,- Beddall received a
terrible heating at the hands of the
mob. Tho direct caus-e of death was
a fracture of the skull four and a half
Inches long and one inch wide. Be
sides this the unfortunate man sus
tained other serious fractures and con
tusions. It was brought out at the In
quest that he did not uso a revolver.
Story of the Siot.
Two witnesses told the htory of the
riot. It was brought out that Deputy
Sheriff Thomas K. Beddall, who was
escorting the three workmen from the
colliery, did not use his pistol until
after he had been assailed several times
by a shower of rocks and bricks. Ills
first shot was fired Into' the air and his
ueeond into the ground. Theie were
more than a hundred men in the crowd
and many of them carried clubs.
Qoroner A. L. Oillars, of Pottsvllle,

nesses who will admit they knew the
persons who Indicted the Injuries on
Dlsi 'ct Attorney M. P. McLaughlin,
nt P dsvllle, Is assisting the coroner
"' lit an advisory capacity. It Is under
stood that a private Investigation by
tne coal company Is In progress, In ad
dition to the county's Inquiry.
i Brigadier General Gobln said that
while everything Is quiet, there Is a
fpeling of unrest among the great army
if idle men and boys. Tho general will
Xiot talk about the length of the stay
of the guards, but it Is believed at bri
gade headquarters that tho soldiers will
' Btny here for some time, or possibly
until the end of the strike. .
Targets will be put tomorrow against
the culm banks, and It Is the hope of
General Gobln to qualify as marksmen
ut least two regiments of tho men now
In camp. He says ho intends to make
the most of tho opportunity to Increaso
tlje efficiency of the men.
.. General Gobin's Order.
The following general order was Is
sued from brigade headquarters today:
Tlio bilgudlcr general commanding de
sires to commend the ofllccis and men of
the beveral commands now hi camp at
Shenandoah for their pinmpt response to
the call for duty and tho rapid concen
tration whoio their services uuio ro

hot fall to establish to a still greater ox
tent the confidence of tho people in tho
efficiency and reliability of tho troops of
Tho utmost caro and observance of dis
cipline Is enjoined upon all. The pecu

deis it necessary for ofllccis and men to
be constc My teady to lospond to what

GOOD'S VERSION OF
Believes That His Life Was Saved by
Beddall's Action The Mob
Bent on Mischief.
By Exclushe Wire from The Associated Press.
Pottsvllle, Pa., Aug. 1. Draughtsman
George W. Good of this place, who was
one of tho three men fhst attacked
by strikers ut Shenandoah on Wednes
day evening and which attack ended In
the riot there gave out a lengthy state
ment this evening in which he describes
the mob's attacks upon himself and
companions. He says he and his com
panions had come from the Reading
company's shops at Pottsvllle to look
up some repairs to machinery at the
West Shenandoah colliery. They were
returning to the railroad station to
take a train for Pottsvllle when they
were surrounded and jostled by a big
crowd of strikers.
Continuing Good says that Deputy
Sheriff Thomas Beddall interceding for
them at this t!me saved their lives.
The deputy urged the crowd to desist,
telling them that the three men had
not taken strikers places at the mine.
The mob, grpw larger and larger and
began to assault the men whereupon
Deputy Beddnll drew out a copy of the
riot act and began to read it. It was
torn from his hand and the deputy was
struck In the face by one of the crowd.
He then drew his levolver and fired
twice in the air, but, the mob con
tinuing to close In, he emptied the re
maining three shells at men who were
beating Good and his companion. This
caused the crowd to break away tem
porarily and gave the deputy and the
three men a chance to escape to the
railroad station. He then describes the
barricade in tl)e:;stntlon and their sub
sequent escape on a locomotive as told
In these despatches on tho night of the
riot. Good is flimly' of the belief that
he and his companion would have ben

Wllkes-Barre, Aug. 1. A large crowd
of striking miners and their sympa
thizers collected In the vicinity of the
Sterling Coal company's washery at
Plymouth today, expecting that opera
tions would be resumed. But no at
tempt was made to start the works and
when this fact became generally
known the crowd slowly dispersed.
There Is some uneasiness at strike
headquarters here over the continued
operation of two collieries In the Lack
awanna region. The organizers of the
miners' union seem to be unable to
reach the men employed at these mines.

MITCHEXL ON HIS ATTITUDE.
Reply to Wllkes-Barre Citizens' Alli
ance Silent on Injunction Suit.
By ExclusUc Who (rom The Awoilatcil I'reii,
Wllkes-Barre, Pa Aug. 1. President
Mitchell, of the miners' union, started
to work early today upon a reply to
tho open letter addressed to him yes
terday by 'the Citizens' alliance of
Wllkes-Barre, nn organization made up
of business and professional men and
others. In an address at tho conven
tion of mlneis of tho First dlstilct of
tho United Mlno Workers, held at Nun
tlcoke home weeks ago, Mr, Mitchell
criticized the alliance, saying It was
not consistent. It wanted to prosecute
all miners who violated tho law, ho
said, hut overlooked the many viola
tions of tho law committed every day
by tho coal combination.
The alliance replied In an open letter,
In which they enumerated imiuy out
rages said to have been committed by
strikers and others In tho coal region
since the strike began. Mr, Mitchell
was called upon to define his position
and to Issue a proclamation to his fol
lowers, warning them to keep on the
side of law and order, He mailn no
reply to the letter, Yesteiday tho alli
ance Issued another open letter to tho
labor chief, and, ufter consulting with
his advisers, Mr, Mitchell decided to
In his reply ho tukes the ground that
he hadalwuys been a staunch defender
of law and order and that his follow
ers know t, He says:
Permit mo to euy that I do not recog.
nlzu your right to make demand upon me
to specifically declare, myself opposed to
any speclnl clnsscn of lawlessness As a
citizen of tho United States and the chief
executive of tho miners' organization I
have declared on Innumerable occasions
and In languago not susceptible of ml-con-structlon
that I am opposed to lawless
ness of every character; and I do not
propose to alter my views to conform to
the tenets of the Citizens' Allluncc, name
ly, wink nt capital crimes while Inveigh
ing against minor offenses. I hnvo never
in my llfo sought to condone nn Mnlawful
act. I have thrown the full weight of
my personality and Influence nn the ride
of law and order, and I can sny,' without
egotism, that the miners' union and Its
nfllcers have done more for the conserva
tion of peaco than all the citizens' alli
ances that have been or could be formed
by men llko yourselves, whn,.o sympathy
with the poor and oppressed Is like unto

1 do not assume, to sny that there have
not been some transgressions of law by
members of the miners' union, but I do
sny, and defy you to successfully contra
dict tho statement, that thcro hns been
much less lawlessness on tho part of tho
miners and that which has occurred
been less serious In proportion to their
numbers, than on the part of deputies
and coal and Iron police, who are charged
with authority and are specifically com
missioned to preserve the law, and
ngnlnst whom you have made no protest
and your association taken no action
whatsoever. And, further, the records In
tho police courts will demonstrate that a
smaller number of miners hn'c been con
victed of crime in the nnthrnclte mining
towns during the progress of tho strike
than for a llko period preceding it.
Again, I have no hesitancy in saying
that there never was a great upheaval,
either social, political or Industrial, in
which there was us little real lawlessness
as has existed In the anirucltc region
since the strike was Inaugurated. As I
said In my speech nt Nantlcokc to which
you took exception the miners are law

any other clas of citizens In our country,

Mr. Mitchell had nothing to say with

against him nnd other national officers
of the United Mine Workers by a coal
company In West Virginia.
REGRETS THE VIOLENCE
In Spite of All, He Still Thinks
That Order Can Be Preserved
By Exclusive Wire from The Atsociateil Press.
Shenandoah, Pa., Aug. 1. President
John Fahy, of District No. 9, United
Mine Workers, which Includes Shenan
doah, arrived here tonight from Shamo
kln and held a conference with the dis
trict leaders on the ground. Mr. Fahy
made a statement, in which he details
at greiut length the efforts the miners
made to prevent trouble In Schuylkill
county. He said he greatly deplored
the tioubls, because up to that time
the conduct of the stilkers had been
the admiration of the country, He told
of the Intention of Sheriff Beddall to
issue a proclamation pn June 18, cull
ing on all citizens to preserve the peace
and of the mine workers' adice to him
not to do it, on the ground that theie
was no occasion for it, as no trouble
was then existing. The' proclamation
was not issued, on the promise that
the mine workers would dt everything
In their power to preserve the peace.
On the night of the riot here, President
Fahy received the following telegram
from the sheriff:
"Reported mine workers have my
deputy prisoner. Huve him released
immediately and disorder stopper, or I
shall use urgent measures."
President Fahy icplied that he would
"gladly try to do everything" he usked,
and then the district piesident sent a
telegram to the advisory board at
Shenandoah, informing them of the
sheriff's telegram, and adding: "I have
answered the sheriff and told -him I
would do all I could, und I now ask
that this be done and that the deputy
be released, and that all disorder be
stopped at once, and I call on all mem
bers of the United Mine Workers to at
once do all they can to have this car
ried Into effect Immediately,"
Mr. Fahy said he immediately got
In touch with Shenandoah and did all
he could to have the mlneis bring
about order. Continuing Mr. Fuhy
"I feel positive that had the advice
of the mine workers to cope with the
situation themselves been taken there
would have been no riot. From the
press It seems that the operators are
jubilant because of the trouble In Shen
andoah, but It seems to me that such
Jubilation simply strengthens the Idea
of the whole thing being a, scheme to
get troops here. The whole world
knows that the. mlno workers did not
want either the violation of law or
anything thut would cause the tioops
to come and any scheme to hoodwink
and fool Governor Stone into sending
them and placing the responsibility on
tho mine workers Is wrong und of It
self Is just' cause why the governor
should withdraw the troops nnd not
commit either himself or the taxpayers
of the state to be victims pf such
schemes. It might be true thut the
presence of troops would make more
business but It Is a wrong way to got
business. There is nut the slightest
doubt In my mind but thut we could
pieserve peace If the troops were with
drawn, I feel more suie now of win
ning the strike than over before."

JOB AT RACES
Judges by Prompt Action Save
Innocent Speculators on
By Exclusive Wire from The Associated Press.
Columbus, O., Aug, 1. The judges at
the Grand Circuit races today un
earthed a job in the $5,000 stake for
2.20 pacers and by prompt action saved
Innocent speculators who had backed
the field, a large sum of money. Se
vere punishment was meted out to the
guilty party, Driver Tom Stuard, and
the horse, Elderone, being suspended
for one year. The 2.20 pace was tho
feature of a good card. There were six
starters, but Greenline and Elderone
were conceded to have the race be
tween them. Greenline won the first
heat with ease, In 2.09, slow time over
the track, which was lightning fast.
The second heat was won by Elder
one, who paced a beautiful mile In
2.05'4, cutting his record by four sec
onds. The original betting had been
Greenline $100 and the field $30. Elder
one's showing in the second heat pro
duced -the desired effect on the odds,
which now switched to '$30 on Green
line and $50 on the Meld. The third
heat went to Greenline In 2.10U, Stuard
maklng.no effort with Elderone. When
the horses came out for the fourth
heat, the judges ordered Stuard out of
the sulky and put Valentine, a local
trainer, and driver, up behind Elder
one. Elderone took the fourth heat In
2.06, outpacing ' Greenlln-ln the
stretch. In the firth heat,f Elderone
went to the break in the first tuYn and
could not be set to pacing again. He
finished behind the flag with a broken
hopple, which investigation showed had
been cut nearly through before the heat
started. The judges declared all bets
off, placed Elderone fourth, Instead of
distanced, in the lasb heat, suspended
Stuard and the horse Elderone for one
year and fined Driver Hudson $100 for
not trying to win the last heat with
Tertimen, Valentine was' awarded $200

enormous damage 'done here -by -the
series of earthquakes, which have 'vis

July 27, have been grossly. exaggerated.
It ls an undeniable fact that there
has been an unprecedented number of
earthquakes, some of them more or less
severe, but as to the reports o'f .great
fissures in the earth, upheaval of the
earth and similar Btorles of the havoo

that they are untrue. Within the lim

habitants of this little t6wn.
No earthquake shocks have been felt t
here since '7.30 o'clock last night, but
the Inhabitants remain panic, striken.

way, who has made a life study of the
geology of the locality, believes that
the recent seismic disturbances here are
In no way due to volcanic activity, but
occasioned by local conditions. His
theory is that the earthquakes are oc
casioned by subsidences caused by the
action of the subterranean gases and
oils in which the region Is known to
abound. It has been known for years
that gas was being generated beneath
the earth's surface in the vicinity of
Prof. Slllman, of Yale, in 1866 put for
ward that theory, and added that he
had nowhere seen such evidence of the
presence of hydro-carbons. That was
substantiated lately by F. McMillan, a
San Francisco mining engineer.
For many years there has been a
small, active volcano on the Los Ala

between that place and Santa Bar
bara. Smoke and steam constantly Is

summit of the plateau or shelf near the
northern slope of the mountain. Viewed
from the distance of the old stage

small camp fires. They have never de
