VARIED VIEWS ON
Both Sides flaree That It Will Has
ten the End of the Strike, but
Dlsatiree as to How.
ONCE MORE RAMPANT
Train Load of Soldiers Stoned at
Throop' by a Mob and a Number
of Arrests Aro Made Soldiers
Stoned at Olyphant Shooting nt
Stcrrick Creek Squad from the
Thiiteenth Assists in Making Ar
rests at the Ridge Shoridan Troop
on a Long Ride.
While the country at large Is very
much worked up over the possibility of
the strike being ended by Friday's con
ference at the White linusoj the local
representatives of the coal companies,
with Intimations that they know
whereof they speak, aver In the most
positive terms that the only possible
effect It will have will be to prove lo
the public In general and the mine
workers in particular that not even
the president of tho United States can
Induce the operators lo recede from
tho position they have ro determinedly
and expensively maintained for nearly
Wednesday the coal companies were
somewhat prone to adversely criticize
the president for meddling In the
strike, for the reason that the only re
sult would be to 1111 the strikers with
false hopes of a compromise and there
by prolong the struggle.
This sentiment, however, underwent
a change, yesterday. Kvery represen
tative of the companies who would
discuss tho matter at all, agreed that
the president's action would have a
good and practical result. The opera
tors will tell the president just what
they have been telling every one else
since the beginning of the strike, that
It would be suicidal for them to make
as much as a single concession to the
union, and that the only way In which
the strike cm end is by the miners
returning to work as they quit.
WHAT THEY WILL CONCLUDE.
When it is known to the strikers, the
company oflielnls say, that there Is ab
solutely no third party who can help
tlibin wring from the operators what
they have so steadfastly refused to
grant, the thoughtful men among
them will conclude there is no hope
of victory and tli.it It would be futile
to longer continue the light.
The strikers and the community at
large do not share the views of Hip
operators' representatives. Despite the
many disappointments from unsuc
cessful intermediations there is a
deep-rooted feeling that something
definite will bo accomplished at the
conference towards an immediate end
ing of the strike.
One belief is that the president will
succeed in getting the operators to
agree to direct arbitration between
themselves and their respective em
ployes after they return to work, and
that tho mine workers will be induced
to call off the strike on these terms.
With the president of the United States'
acting as a sort of trustee of assur
ances that the miners will be given
satisfactory adjustment of their griev
ances, it Is argued, the miners will be
disposed to quit their light, and see
to what extent the operators will make
good their promises, reserving the
light to resume the tight if the oper
ators' promises are not fulfilled.
Interest Is wholly centered on the
White house conference and as a con
sequence there Is little or nothing doing
locally In the strike situation. Unlike
the two pievious days, yesterday was
devoid of claims of gains by either
side. The company jiflleials admitted
there was no semblance of a break In
the strike) s' ranks yet apparent, and
the strlkeis' headquarters laid nothing
others, and so the name borosis is passed from one
woman to the other. There's no mystery about such popu

While Scranton women appreciate the

ever. 12 new Sorosis" Stores

An Ontailo and Western train, con
taining Company I), of the Thirteenth

Arthur It. Footc, was stoned last even

Major B. Rush Field, Commander of
taken from the mine at the close of
the day's work, has been stoned by
foreigners living nearby.
Late yesterday afternoon a special
Ontario and Western train was made
ready at Olyphant and was boarded by
Company D. The curtains on the win
dows of the car occupied by the sol
diers were drawn down, so as to con
ceal their presence, and the train
steamed into Throop, arrrivlng there
about fi.30 o'clock.
The train pulled Into the switch lead
ing to the Pancoast mine, where It re
mained for several minutes, to convey
tho impression that non-union men
were being taken aboard. It was then
backed out towards the main line.
The foroigners liviifg in the neighbor
hood bad been busy, meanwhile, and
bad piled rocks of large slue on the
tracks. A crowd of forty or fifty men,
armed with stones, was lined up near
the track and as the train came along
they let fly. The windows in the cab
of the engine were smashed and a big
rock just missed the head of Sergeant
Major Robert M. Vail, who was riding
with tho engineer.
STONE THROWERS CAPTURED.
Before a second volley of stones could
bo thrown, the soldiers jumped from
the slowly moving train and chased the
crowd, which was growing larger every
instant. The rioters, startled at the
sudden appearance of the soldiers, took
to their heels. Seven of them were cap
tured, however, and were turned over
to Deputy Sheriffs John Gaffney and
Jacob Ferber, who were with the party.
The prisoners were brought to this
city on the train, under escort of a.
squad of soldiers, and were taken to
Alderman Ituddy's office, where a hear
ing was conducted. Informations were
sworn out by General Manager Bryden,
of the Ontario and Western coal de
pat tment, and warrants for all seven
men were issued and served.
The names of those arrested were as
follows: John Volinsky, John Peters,
William Novitsky, William Arouson,
Frank Orton, Joseph Masko and Peter
Grlnall, All were charged with malic
iously placing stones on the railroad
track for tho purpose of obstructing a
train, and with maliciously throwing
Attorney Joseph O'Brien represented
the company at the hearing, while the
prisoners were not represented by
Shoes in all
counsel. Nearly all of the men arrested
were identified by the ollleers and sol
diers present as having been In Hie
crowd which attacked the train. Al
derman Ruddy committed thorn all to
the county Jail In default of S00 each.
Two men employed on the construc
tion of tile new breaker being erected
at the Temple romptiuy'n Northwest
colliery at Kdgcrton, were sot upon
while going to work, yesterday, by
twelve foreigners and badly liputcn,
ISoth needed the attention of doctors.
SHOOTING AT STERRICK CREEK.
The shooting alTray near the Stcr
rick Creek colliery In Jensttp, Wednes
day night, proves to have had but
slight connection with the strike. A
miner named .lolin Walsh, from West
Scranton, who has been working at the
Stcrrick Creek, went to Marshall's
hotel about midnight to get a pall of
beer. He got Into a dispute with Mrs.
Marshall, who Is conducting the place,
and drew n revolver on her. She cov
ered him with a revtilvcr and drove
him out of the house. Retreating ft
short distance, Walsh turned and fired.
First Battalion, Thirteenth Regiment.
Mrs. Marshall banged back at him
three times. He pulled away farther
and fired two more shots. By this time
a squad of Captain Conrad's men, fiom
Company A, reached the scene and
took Walsh into custody. He claimed'
he had been set upon by a crowd of
strikers and only filed the shots to
bring the soldiers to his rescue. Ho
was sent under guard to camp am)
placed Initho stockade to await an In
vestigation. McXally was brought to this city
last night and arraigned for a hearing
before Alderman Ruddy. Private Fiati
der Aten, of Company G, testified to
having seen him fire the revolver and
was apparently convinced that he was
firing at him. Aten was ono of the
men who took htm into custody. Mc
Xally was committed to the county jail
in default of $900 bail, $"00 each on
three charges, shooting with Intent to
kill, pointing firearms and carrying
TROUBLE AT OLYPHANT.
The trouble nt the Ontario and West
ern depot at Olyphant, which happened
about the same time, bore a different
aspect. A guaid of four men from
Company G were protecting the troop
train, which Is kept standing on a.
switch near the station. A stone was
thrown through the glass panel of tho
car door, striking near one of the sol
diers, and another stone crashed
through a window of the station wait
ing room, wiiere two of the soldiers
were sitting. One of the soldiers caught
sight of a man running towards the
river and fired at him. Just as the
shot was fired the man dropped out of
sight, and it was thought lie had been
hit. Investigation showed, however,
that his dropping out of sight was duo
to his having jumped down an eni-
I bankment to the river's edge.
Michael Bilskl, Joseph Beddoe, Ben
nie Andrlolo, Thomas Stotclt and
Thomas I.aff, residents of the Ridge,
at Archbald, were brought down to
Alderman Kasson's office yesterday by
a detachment of twenty men from
Company I, of Kaston, to answer
charges of inciting riot and threatening
to kill Lot Howells.
On Aug. 29 these men waylaid and
