Barre Scents a Plot Other Strike
By Exclusive Wire from The Associated Press.
Washington, Oct. 2. Senator Quay,
of Pennsylvania, was in conference
with the president for an hour today,
nnd It Is understood that he came hero
nt the request of the president to dis
cuss the coal strike situation. The
president and the senator Were not In
terrupted, and two cabinet officers who
called In did nut see the president while
the coni 'ence was in progress. Sen
ator Quay, after he left the president,
would not dismiss the situation or ex
press an opinion as to the probable ef
fect of the coming conference.
During: the day Secretary Root, At
torney Genera! Knox and Secretary
Shaw were in conference with the
president for nearly an hour. It la
understood that the president discussed
the subject of the conference tomor
row, the cabinet officers making: a
number of suggestions as t0 what the
president should say to those who will
participate In it.
It has been decided that Attorney
General Knox shall attend the confer
once tomorrow between the president,
the coal operators and rNlrTJiitchell. of
the miners' union. He will be the only
member of the cabinet who will he
present. Carroll ID. Wright, commis
sioner of labor, who recently made an
investigation of the strike situation,
also will attend on the invitation of
the president. While every one con
nected with the administration is ex
tremely reticent concerning tin; coming
conference, there Is n feeling of hope
among those close to the president that
It Is going to result In ir settlement of
the strike. Tills hope is based on the
acuteness of the situation nnd the ne
cessity that exists for a settlement,
along with the known desire of the
president to bring about a settlement
of the great labor controversy if such,
a thing lie possible.
The I'ost will say tomorrow that the
coal presidents at tonforrnw's confer
ence will decline to accept any plan of
strike settlement which proposes to
treat with President Mitchell, but that
they have considered a tentative plan,
according to which, "the coal presi
dents will propose that the men return
to work with the understanding that
their grievances, as Individuals, shall
he submitted to a board of arbitration,
nnd that the presidents will agree
to abide by the decision of this board,
the members of which shall be appoint
ed by the president."

WIlkes-BaiTP. Oct. 2. The mining
town of Plymouth, which has been free
from any disturbances since the strike
began, was the scene of much disor
der today. Mobs surrounded the Ster
ling and North American washerles,
and Sheriff Jacobs being unable to dis
perse them, summoned the military.
Colonel Dougherty sent throe compan
ies of the Ninth regiment to the scene
and they arrested eleven men, charged
with rioting. They were brought be
fore Magistrate Pollock, of this city,
who after a hearing held them In $1,000
bail each for trial at court. A strong
guard was placed over the washerles
tonight. They are expected to resume
operations tomorrow.
The washery at the Hollenhack mine
started up work this afternoon. This
was a surprise to the strikers. De
spite the conference called to meet at.
Washington, the operators of the Wy
oming valley are very aggiesslve.
The following telegram was sent by
President Mitchell to the three anthra
cite district secretaries today:
There lias been placed In my hands in
disputable evidence of an attempt on the
part of the operators to create discord
among our nnn-lhigllsh speaking miners
through the circulation of pamphlets con
taining malicious and dastardly attacks
upon the officers of the organization and
by nn effort to arouse race prejudice.
These circulars will be printed In all the
foreign languages and will be signed by
a person designating himself "A Friend."
Immediately notify all district and local
officers to be on their guard. It Is es
pecially Important that our non-English
speaking brothers be Informed of this
conspiracy. John Mitchell.

Birmingham, Ala., Oct. 2. Twenty
five hundred miners In the employ of
the Tennessee Coal, Iron and Hallway
company, on orders from the execu
tive board of the United Mine Workers
of America, district of Alabama, sus
pended work today. The suspension Is
on account of the refusal of the opera
tors to collect for the union the one
dollar per week assessment, made on
all union miners for the benefit of the
anthracite strikers In Pennsylvania.
It is probable thnt the Blue Creek
and Blocton mines of the Tennessee
company also will be Involved If an ad
justment Is not soon reached. About

declined to withhold the assessment
money from certain miners at West
Pratt, who objected to its payment,

Chicago, Oct. 2. The "Iowa Idea"
came to tho surfuce tonight nt a mass
meeting under the uusplces of the Na
tional League of Republican clubs,
which met in annual convention here
today. United States Senator J. P.
Dolilver, of Iowa, was responsible. Sen
ator Dolllver's distinction ns an ora
tor and statesman Insured him the en
thusiastic reception he received from
nn audience that tilled the First ltegi
ment armory.
Interest became Intense when it was
realized by the delegates to the con
vention and spectators that they were
being treated to the first public speech
on the subject by a national leader of
the party since the Iowa Republican
state convention, air. Dolilver said In
Let us look at the Iowa idea for a
minute, and l select that, only because I
am more familiar with It, and tho cir
cumstances which have arisen to give it a
universal advertisement. It has not been
presented to the country as the sudden
impulse of dissatisfied mischief-makers
within the Republican party. On tho
other hand, it Is the mature Judgment of
a man whose wisdom lias never failed tho
Republican party In tho forty years of
his uninterrupted public service.
Value of Large Capital.
Our people recognize the value of a
Inrge capital for the transaction of a
great business, and especially for the
commercial conquests upon which we uio
now entering. But they recognize also
the danger of abuses, both In the or
ganization and management of great In
dustrial enterprises, and would have liio
government of the United States stand
between the community and the reckless
perversion of the beneficent law of corpor
ate property. It Is evident that, even if
it wore desirable to kill the trusts, It
could not be done by merely remitting
the duties whleh their foreign competi
tors pay at our custom bouses. Even
Mr. Bryan, who talks of putting the cap
tains of industry Into a chain gang and
sending J. Plerpont Morgan first to the
poor house and then to the penitentiary,
admits publicly that the free trade rem
edy falls very far short of the object he
has in view.
I have, from the beginning, been slow
to believe that it is possible lor one man
or any combination of men, to overrule
the forces which make for equity nnd
fair dealing In human society. For that
reason, 1 have been willing to for
tho facts, nnd govern my Judgment, by n.
more, careful observation than has hith
erto been practicable. The census of 1!H)J
bus given nn aenrato account of the
trusts and what they are doing and tho
dally reports of the market place in
dicate what their present standing and
future prospects actually are.
Number of Trusts.
AVe know that they are 18." In number,
representing the consolidation of 2.ul)
separate plants. We know that less than
10 per cent, of tho factory labor of the
country Is employed by them and only
11 per rent, of our manufactured output
Is mndo by them, nnd leaving out chem
icals nnd the products of Iron .and steels,
the percentage Is hardly visible to tho
nuked eye. In tho textile Industiies, they
aro almost unknown and most of tho
other fields of American production the,"
have entered as mere Intruders and dis
turbers of tho peace.
The moro 1 examine the old law of
competition, the better It looks to me.
Already the evidence Is accumulating
from which the doom of tho trusts can ho
foretold, even the most solvent and best
managed of them nil. The figures of tho
census show flint neither In the mercan
tile nor tho manufacturing world, has tho
small dealer, who owns his business nnd
gives It his personal attention, anything
to fear In competition with tho over
grown and top-heavy Investments of
capital that surround him.
There Is no room In tills dlscussslon for
vain exclamations nf alarm anil despair.
Up to this time, the tariff policy tn which
we owo tho prosperity which now sur
rounds us, has been the ally of Inde
pendent capital, In Us grapple with tho
modern trust system: hut if tho day
should ever como when the prnducllvo
energies of American people are Impotent
in the presenco of monopoly, tho protec
tion which for moro than a generation
our laws have given to all our Industries
alike. Is not likely to remain to enrich
such u conspiracy of greed.

Wllliainsport, Oct. 2. Five masked
nnd desperate burglars made a bold nt
tempt to rob tho safe of the Montours
villo Passenger Railway company at an
early hour this morning. In a terrific
battle with revolvers, which followed
the attempt, one of the desperadoea
was killed and two others were slightly
wounded by Engineer Alem Bly, who
was shot twice by the robbers.
Shortly before 2 o'clock this morning,
while Engineer Alem Bly was at work ,
repairing a wnter pump in the power
house in the Atontoursvllle Passenger
Railway company station, he was
startled by a terrific crash, caused by
the front door of the building being
battered in with n heavy plank. Bly
rushed to u desk which contained his
revolver, and, as he turned to face the
intruders, he was met with a fusilade
of shots from the revolvers In the
hands of five men, who had the lower
part of their faces covered with hand
kerchiefs. One of the shots struck Bly
in the hip and another mnrie a flesh
wound In the thigh. The wounds did
not disable the brave engineer, hov
ever, and he leveled his revolver and
fired at one of the burglnrs, who was
several feet In advance of his pals. The
bullet pierced the heart of the desper
ado and he fell dead. The engineer
kept firing at the rest of thegans,,who
kept up a continuous fire, wounding
two of them slightly. After the revol-'
ver had been emptied, Bly retreated
through a rear door of the boiler house
and came to a nearby factory and
aroused the watchman who sounded
an nlarin by blowing the factory whis
tle. While Bly was absent the robbers
dragged the body of their dead pal to
the outside of the building, where they
left It and (led. Fp to a late hour no
trace of them has been found.
Dead Desperado Described.
The dead man wns i feet 914 inches
tall, well proportioned and muscular,
weighing probably ITS pounds. He had
dark brown hair, prominent nose, per
fect teeth and wore no beard or mous
tache. He was. about 33 years of age.
On his right arm was tattoed the Lib
erty bell, the American llag and a cross,
anil on the back of the hand and wrist
a star. On the left forenrni was the
tlgure of a woman. On his left leg, be
low the knee, was a scar, evidently
from a scald. It was two Inches wide
and nine indies long, In a black derby
hat was pasted a label bearing the
words, "K. Novell, leader of fashion,"
the name of the town being unintellig
ible. On the neck nf u black worsted
coat was an Inscription, "One Price
Clothing House, Altoona." In the but
tonhole of the lupel of bin coat was u
small button, on which were t lettcm
which rend as follows: "U. XL W, of
A April 1, 1S!)S: Wight Hours." From
this badge it was at first believed he
was a miner. Some doubt was thrown
on this, however, by the fact that Ills
general appearance- was not likely to
convey that Impression. No powder or
coal murks were found on his body and
his hands were small and the palms,
soft, showing that the ninn never did
much manual labor. 'J he local police
nre working on a clue which may re-i
suit In the capture of the fugitives.
The coroner's jury tonight render.
n verdict exonerating Engineer
from nil bhiino for having caused
