Denies Stories That Foreigners Are
By Exclmhc Wire from The Associated l'rcss.
Shenandoah. Aug. 6. William Stein,
the state mine Inspector for the Shen
andoah region, today announced that
Ave collieries under his jurisdiction,
which have an estimated total value ot
51,500,000, have been rendered useless by
reason of having been flooded and have
been permanently abandoned by the
companies owning them. Four of them
Bear nun, Bear Ridge, Kohlnoor and
Preston, No. 3 belong to the Philadel
phia and Reading Coal and Iron com
pany, and he places their value at
about $1100,000 each. The other colliery
is the Lawrence, and Is owned by the
gheufer estate of Pottsville, and also
represents about 1300,000. Mr. Stein
estimates that out of the thirty-six col
lieries in his district, only fourteen aio
in a condition for immediate operation
if the strike weie ended. The others
are In such a condition that it would
require anywhere from one to four
months to clear them of water and
make repairs. He said the average
time would be about two. months. The
abandonment of the five collieiles will
compel 2,000 mine workers to seek em
ployment In other parts of the region,
and they may have tiouble In finding
It, if the thousands of men who have
left the region during the strike should
retdrn. This condition of affairs, the
mine Inspector said, is a serious matter
not only with the companies, but also
with the men. After the strike shall
have been ended, most of the workmen
will have to remain in Idleness for an
other period of time until the collieries
are placed in working condition. In the
coal fields south of here, Jlr. Stein said
the situation Is about as bad. But in
the Wyoming and Lackawanna region
the mines are in much better condition.
The mine inspector's statement created
considerable Interest here, as it con
firmed the belief of some of the coal
company officials that a full resump
tion of coal mining will not take place
this year and, in consequence, the tend
ency of coal prices will be upward,
rather than downward.
Shenandoah Situation Unchanged.
The situation so tar as the peace of
the Shenandoah legion was concerned
remains unchanged today. It was
probably the quietest day since the
soldiers were called out, one week ago
tonight. Matters around brigade head
quarters at the Ferguson house lue
settled down to a routine condition and
Brigadier General Gobin has com
pleted all the details for supporting the
civil authorities In their task to en
force the law. Everything was quiet
in the camp of the troops. The only
matter of Inteie3t was a dress paiade
In town of the Twelfth regiment, in
honor of General Gobin. Two com
panies of infantry are still kept on
guaid duty In the town, one at the
Reading tallway station in a foreign
settlement, and the other at the Penn
sylvania raihoad station, close to ail
other foreign colony. General Gobin
has ordered the establishment of a
signal system fiom bilgade headquar
ters' to the camp, which is nearly a mile
distant. The heliograph and flag will
bo used In the day-time and the torch
at night. This will bo the first time
the signal system has been In operation
since the Homestead strike, ten years
General Gobin, In speaking of the
conditions In the region, said today
that Shenandoah, for a town of its size,
vas more thickly populated than the
worst tenement district In New York.
He thought the sanitary conditions la
the different quarters of the place weie
extremely bad, because of the lack of
sewerage. In reply to a queiy, he said
ho had been advised that foreigners In
this city were being drilled, but he
would not say whether the information
he had received was correct. He be
lieved, however, there are many smait
men among the foreigners here, who
have been officers in European armies
and have taken refuge In this coun
try. A large percentage of the mala
foreigners, he added, no doubt have had
military training In their native lands,
where a term of years In the urmy Is
compulsory. The ex-ofllcers, the gen
eral said, have considerable tufluenco
over the others, and they were not to
be trusted. Ho characterized the ex
ofllcers as "adventurers and degenerate
scions of noble sires."
Pulaski Denies Drill Stories.
Paul Pulaski, nutlonal organizer of
the Mine Workers und vlco president
of district No. 9, who looks after the
foreign members of the union came
here today, He denied all the stories
of secret drilling by tho Polunders and
others, He said (here Is no secret or
ganisation within the miners union.
Ho udmltted that the Polandera who
belong to beneficial &qcjetes keep up
a form of military organization, but
he said this was done only to keep
alive the memory of their duys at
iume. These organizations, he said,
can bo found In most cities where
there Is any considerable number of
foreigners. "Tho foreigners," he con
cluded, "think too much of the free
dom they have In this country to turn
guns against Its government."
Mr, Pulaski came here today and ad
dressed two large meetings of foreign
speaking strikers in this city. There
were from l.BOO to 2,000 men present.
The men declared In meeting they
would not return to work until uftcr
the strike shall have been officially
declared off. Mr. Pulaski said tho men
are in good financial condition and
need no relief. He addressed another
large meeting of foreigners in Mahanoy
City this afterno6n. There was a lit
tle disorder In Mahanoy City late last
night. A junk vender from Harrlsburg
who had been seen near a colliery wus
suspected of being a deputy and was
set upon by a number of men. Ho
escaped up the mountain and sought
refuge with a colony of Roumanian
Jews. Fearing an attack Isador Lub
inskl, one of the Hebrews, dashed
down the mountain over an unfre
quented road to get help from the
Mahanoy CItv police.
The West Virginia Agitators Held
for Contempt of Court Will Be
Obliged to Serve Sentences.
By Exclushe Wire from 1 he Associated Press.
Clarksburg, W. Va., Aug. 5. Judge
Goff this afternoon, in a lengthy opin
ion, affirmed the action of Judge Jack
son and decided the habeas cot pus case
against the miners and agitators, and
remanded them to the custody of the
marshal and sheriff, and they will be
removed to Patkersburg to serve the
balance of their sentences. The judge
said the only question was as to the
Jurisdiction and that the Guarantee
Trust company of New York was, en
titled to a standing in court and it
was not absolutely necessary for the
fuel company to be made a party to
the suit.
The decision Is a great disappoint
ment to the miners, and their counsel
says that no other action can be taken,
for the piesent at least.
Judge Goff read his decision from
typewritten pagos. He occupied twenty
minutes in reading the decision, at the
end of which he directed that an order
be drawn lemanding the prisoners to
the Wood county jail. "Mother Jones"
was an Intel ested spectators in the au
dience and seemed to be disappointed
at the decision. Marshal Elliott left to
night for Parkersburg with the prison
ers, where they will enter the Wood
county jail to serve the rest of tho
sentence Imposed by Judge Jackson.
At the depot, "Mother" Jones encour
aged the martyrs, as she calls them.
She said: "Our cause is God's cause
and we will triumph in the end,"

"I have just loturncd from Canada

Shoots Himself When Hopelessly
Surrounded Eluded Posses for
Two Months.
By Exclude Wire from The Associated Press.
Spokane, Wash., Aug. 6. Harry Tracy,
the outlaw.who escaped from the Salem
(Ore.) penitentiary two months ago,
killed himself In a wheat field near Fel
low es at 4.30 o'clock this morning. He
was sunounded by a posse.
Word was brought to Creston late
last night that Tracy was surrounded
in a swamp hear tho Eddjj farm, eleven
miles southeast of Creston, Wash. A
long-range rifle fight between Tracy and
the posse of eight men, headed by
Sheriff Gardner, was taking place.
In the fight with the sheriff's posse
Tiacy was wounded in the right leg be
tween the knee and thigh. Twenty
minutes later, knowing that his capture
was certain, he killed himself with a
revolver. The body of the outlaw was
found this morning.
Tracy escaped from the Oregon State
penitentiary at Salem on June 9 in com
pany with David Merrill. They had
killed four men, Frank W. Ferrell, G.
R. T. Jones and B. F. Tiffany, guards,
and Frank Ingraham, a convict, who
tried to prevent the flight. On June 28
Tracy killed Merrill near Napavine,
Wash., shooting him fiom behind, and
leaving his body in the forest, where it
was found on July 15. On July 3, near
Seattle, in a fight with a posse, Tracy
shot and killed Charles Raymond, a
deputy sheriff; E. E. Bresse, a police
man, and mortally wounded Neil Raw
ley, who died on the following day. Carl
Anderson and Louie Zofrite, newspaper
reporters, were wounded.
During his flight Tracy eluded vari
ous posses when apparently sui rounded
and held up numerous farmers, whom
he forced to furnish food and clothing.
By threats of murdering their families
he compelled them to cover up his
tracks. Perhaps his greatest show of
daring was displayed on July 2 at
South Bay, near Oiympla, when he held
up six men and foiced four, including
Captain Clark, of a large gasoline
launch, to embark with him on Puget
Sound and pilot him up stream for ten
hours. In 1897 Tracy murdered Valen
tine Hoge, a Colorado cattleman, and
William Strong, a boy, in the same
A total reward of $5,600 was offered
for the recapture of Tracy. Governor
MeBride, of Washington, offered $2,500,
dead or alive; tho state of Oregon
offered $3,000, and a brother of one of
the guards killed at the penitentiary
offered $100. The ieward for Merrill's
capture amounted to $1,500, which has
been claimed by Mrs. Waggoner, the
berry picker, who, with her son, found
the body near their home.

tractsThe Senator's Hopes for

By Exclusive Ire from The Associated Press.
Urbana, O., Aug. C. Senator M. A.
Hanna addressed the Urbana Chautau
qua today on the topic: "Labor and
Its Relations to Capital." An audience
of nearly 3,000 greeted him at the Tab
ernacle. His address was applauded
frequently and vigorously. It was en
tirely extemporaneous and was largely
devoted to an explanation of the origin,
aims and accomplishments of the Civic
Federation, of which he is the' presi
dent. Senator Hanna said In part:
Judge Wurnock has told you' that in my
business life 1 had been connected with
industiics employing a largo number of
men. That is tuie. From tho miner un
der the giound to the men that woik in
nearly every avocation of life in other
industries 1 have to do. Thirty yeais
ago I was a witness and pai ticipated in
one of the most sfcilous sttlkes that ever
occuried in Ohio. It was the mineis'
stiike of the Tiibcaiawas valliy. After it
had been settled, after propel ly had been
destroyed and blood had been shed there
came a time to think it over, and I made
up my mind that theic was a better way
to hcttle such disputes than that. And
as yeais of expeilenco have parsed and
I have noticed and studied every feature
of tho question, every trait of chaiactcr,
every question that moiii'S men,. I have
formed the opinion that it was possible
to settle dispittes in a different way. It
is not a political question, but an econ
omic. It is that and more. It is a moral
one. The best way to leach men's minds
and men's heaits i3 to appeal first to
the heart and then leason with the mind.
It is to the woik of education that I
want to enlist the sympathies of all such
people as sit before me and with God's
blessing may it spiead through every
ciiclc in the laud.
Tho senator then spoke of the Na
tional Civic Federation, of its origin
and its work. He said the object of
the organization is to better the condi
tions of labor, to bring It in closer con
tact with capital, and, if possible, by
effort and education, to make It impos
sible to have strikes. Continuing, he
In every Instance but one, in a ten
months' existence, we have settled every
labor difficulty that has come to us. This
one Instance where the oiganlzatlon
failed was the anthracite coal strike.
Where Federation Failed.
I admit that the fcdeiation has failed
in Its efforts thete. It is hard to con
ciliate, it is haul to arbitrate a question
when only one side will consider it. 13ut
in that connection, 1 want to call your
attention to another incident in my cf
toits in that &Uike and otheis.
When appealing to the employers to
consider somo things In connection with
the situation that 1 did not think they
fully appreciated or understood, 1 told of
the experience of myself and associates
vecently in connection with tho coal min
ing of Western Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indi
ana and Illinois. 1 have said that I
thought thcio is a better way to settle
differences, and nfter twenty yeais of ex
perience tho operators conti oiling tho
mines of the states mentioned havu lound
a better way. After days and nights of
negotiating four years ago, we organized
what was termed "the interstate associa
tion," composed of tho opciatives and
operatois of tho coal mines of these
states. Wo agreed upon a Bcale ot wages,
flexible enough to adopt itself to dlffeicnt
physical conditions. That scale once
agreed upon, all that became necessary
was to fix the basis pi lee. That was
four years ago. Tho contract was made.
The operatois went Into tho markets and
bold their coal and the coal minors abided
by their coutuicts and dellvoied it. The
next year It was lenowed by a horizon
tal advance of price, tho next year It was
lenowed, and then last year it was re
newed. Peaeo and haimony, good and success
ful business opciations have succeeded
that policy.
Faithful to Contracts,
In using that argument with others, it
was said to me; "Why, what is your
conti act worth with a labor oiganlza
tlon; If it don't want to Keep it, It won't
and you can't make 'It." That is tiuo,
but when that remaik carried with it the
Insinuation that men of that class had
no honor in earning out a contract, I
want to say that I deny it mid now 1
Jiavo tho proof. Tho piolonged strlko In
tho authraclto country has brought
about a condition that is nlaimlng not
only to tho peace of society, but tho
mateilul liitcicsts of our people Thcio
is In the constitution of tho United Mlno
Workers of America a piovlslon that If
flvo divisions of the organization mako
application to the picsldent, ho shall call
together In convention delogutcs of tho
organization and settlo that question.
When every other means had been unsuc
cessfully tilv'd; when men bocume des
perate from their situation;- when they
saw hunger and starvation bcfoie them,
was It not nut ui al that they should bo
despoiato. Thoy then resolved to call a
national convention and flvo divisions
asked tho president t,o call It. The object
was to decido tho question whether the.
bituminous men belonging to that or
ganization would go on stilko In sympa
thy. Those of you Who muy bo familiar
with tho great railroad and Industrial In
terests of this couutiy can 'uppreclate
what that meant. It would stop tho
wheels of commorco and paiaivzo every
Industiy that depended upon tho fuel
from these mines. John Mitchell, the
president of the organization,, had ex-
pressed himself publicly as averse to that
expedient. And, knowing what I know
of his Influence, and bcllovlng as I did
tlint tho men who had entered Into a
solemn compact with tho employers,
which had been In force for four yeais,
hound only by their honor, they would
defend that horor, nnd they did by vot
ing unanimously against tho stiike.
The Best Lesson.
Now there Is ono of tho best lessons
thnt has ever boon picscntcd to tho
American people. There Is ono of the
strongest arguments that can bo urged
In favor of getting farther with this
policy and cncoui aging theso men and
their class by nssuilng them thnt they
call earn and establish tho conlldonco of
their employers nnd the whole American
people by such acts ns those. It will
take tlmo nnd patience mid work, bo
causo It Is a woik of education and ono
of tho most efficient and best methods
of that sort of education Is to havo tho
talk from this platform and from ovory
other platform controlled by tho Chau
tuuqua circle.
What there Is yc' to bo dono along
tho lino of this gieat question depends
greatly upon tho support that wo receive,
and that It bo not confined to that small
organization of tho Civic Federation.
It is a great question, We admit it Is
of tho greatest Importance to our body
politic and to our futtuo ns a country.
It is a subject that must bo dealt with
from tho political lostrum nnd from tho
platform of Chautauqua circles and fiom
tho pulpit itself.
Their RealEstate Sold Before
American Occupation of
the Philippines.
By Exclushc Wire fiom The Associated Press.
Rome, Aug. 6. According to informa
tion received' by the Vatican, almost ull
the real estate belonging to Spanish
friars in the Philippines was sold before
American occupation to syndicates and
corporations, duly registered and legal
ly recognized, headed by Americans
living in New York. It Is said by the
same authority that although the friars J
noia some snares in tnese corporations,
they do not own controlling interests.
The Vatican is surprised a,t this Infor
mation, in view of Governor TafVs
proposition to buy the friars' lands,
which apparently are no longer In their
control. It Is considered remarkable
that Governor Taft, fresh from the
Philippines, was not. aware of the situ
ation. Washington, Auk. 6. The war de
partment has known for somo time that
portions of the friars' lands in the
Philippines have been disposed to com
panies, and all of the recent negotia
tions conducted by Secretary Root have
carfcfully taken into account any con
tingencies which might arise through
these transfers. The facts were fully
communicated to the government here
by Governor Taft. The latter also ex
plained this matter of alleged transfers
to the senate committee on the Philip
pines. In the course of his evidence
before the committee, Governor Taft
said, in answer to the question whether
the friars were in actual possession of
the lands: "Generally, In order to avoid
hostilities, they have transferred their
titles to companies and retained the
majority of the stock."
Being asked as to these companies,
Governor Taft explained their status as
follows: "I wish to say that one of
these companies, or a stockholder of
one of the companies, has filed a pro
test with the acting governor, which I
have with me, against the condemna
tion of these lands, because of the In
terest some Individual owners have In
them. But I want to add that I do not
think that protest has sufficient weight
to vary the truth of my statement that
the commission has reasonable ground
to believe that with the authority
which it asks, to wit, to Issue bonds, It
can at reasonable prices purchase this
As to the bona fide nature of the
transfers to certain companies, Gover
nor Taft said that he had cross exam
ined the heads of religious orders. He
"I think after you read the evidence
It will become obvious that while It is
true that transfers have been made,
they have been colorable In this sense
not fraudulent; I do not say that
but they have been colorable In the
sense that tho transfer made was for
the purpose of giving the public the
impression that the frlais had parted
with their titles and thus facilitating
the collection of rents, while, In fact,
the ownership Is still retained. That
Is my Information as to tho condition
of the titles now in splto of a piotest
filed by some stockholders with re
spect to tho ownership of somo hacien
das." Having In mind this Information that
the friars had sold portions of their
lands to companies, Secretary Root
said In his last dispatch of Instruction
to Governor Taft, sent to the latter at
Rome, that in case of a successful close
of the negotiations lists must be fur
nished, not only of the land, but also
of titles which had beeiwme.-ged in tho
stock of corporations, with the total
stock of buch corporations and tho
amount of stock held by tho religious
ordeis, Aside from this information,
given by Governor Taft, the war de
partment has been advised from tlmo
to time of certain Individual transfers
made by icllglous Institutions In the
Philippines to persons and organiza
tions In this country, One such trans
fer Is reported by a leudlng (Inn of at
torneys In New York and another Is
reported by a Washington firm of at
torneys. Tho negotiations have pro
ceeded, however, with tho idea that
fiese transfers wero not of a naturo to
Interrupt tho consummation of the
main object of securing a, transfcrance
of the lands us un entirety.

By Exclusive Wire from The Associated Tress.
Reval, Russia, Aug. C Emperor Wil
liam of Germany arrived In the road
stead today. The shlplpng In tho har

The czar, on the Imperial yacht
Standart, sailed early to meet tho
Hohenzollern. The German emperor
was transhipped to the Standart, which
returned to port with the two emperors

The meeting of the emperor and the

private conference.
St. Petersburg, Aug. 6. While the

on the pleasing guarantee of European
peace afforded by today's friendly meet
ing of tho czar and the German em
peror, there Is a strong under-current
dlscernable In all editorials that pro

of serious friction between Russia and
Germany, depends largely op a renewal
of the commercial treaty of 1891. This
consummation of the emperor's visit is

various frfends who greeted him on the
platform, and to whom he waved adieu
on entering his carriage. He appeared
to be in excellent spirits. The decrease
In his weight, caused by the operation,
gave him an appearance of greater
height. He stood up in his carriage
and bowed repeatedly in response to
the cheering throngs on the route to
tho palace.
He seemed to be In the greatest good
humor, and evidently was delighted to
get back. His face was perpetually
lighted up with a smile of satisfaction,
and he looked anything but an invalid.
The Prince and Princess of Wales and
their children drove over to Bucking
ham palace from York house and. Just
before their majesties arrived, they ap
peared on the palace balcony and were
loudly cheered by tho crowd outside.

in the carriage with the king, and
two nurses followed In the next car

ing had scarcely stopped, his majes
ty insisted on using an open carriage
on the way to Buckingham palace, tho
entire route to which was well lined
with enthusiastic cheering crowds.
