On the strength that Mr. Wright Is
close to President Hoosevelt there Is a

of the belief that some sort of a move
Is contemplated. Immediately upon the
arrival of the strike leader, he was be

ALL STATE TROOPS
ARE ORDERED OUT
Governor Stone Decides to Call
the Entire National Guard
The Decision to Place All Available State Troops in the
Field Is Reached After a Council of War with
the General Officers of the Guard.
Harrisburg, Oct. C Governor Stone late tonight ordered out the entire
division of the National Guard or Pennsylvania on duty in the anthracite coal
legions. The soldiers will be In the Held tomorrow. The order calling: out thu
guard Is as follows:
Headquartei'3 National Guard, Adjutant General's Office.
Harrisburg:, Oct. 6, 1902.
In certain portions of the counties of Luzerne, Schuylkill, Carbon,
Lackawanna, Susquehanna, Northumberland and Columbia, tumults and
riots frequently occur, and mob law reigns, men who desire to work have
been beaten nnd driven awny, and their families threatened. Railroad
trains have been delayed, stoned and the tracks torn up. The civil au
thorities are unable to maintain order and have called upon the governor
nnd commander-in-chief of the National Guard for troops. The situation
grows more serious each day. The territory involved is so extensive that
the troops now on duty are insufficient to prevent all disorder. The
presence of the entire division. National Guard of Pennsylvania is neces
sary in these counties to maintain the public peace.
The major general commanding will place the entire division on
duty, distributing them in such localities as will render them most ef
fective for preserving the public peace.
As tumults, riots, mobs and disorder usually occur when men at
tempt to work in and about the coal mines, he will see that all men who
desire to work, and their families, leceive ample military protection. He
will protect all trains and other property from unlawful interference,
nnd will arrest all persons engaging in acts of violence and intimidation,
nnd hold them under guard until their release will not endanger the pub
lic peace; will see that threats, intimidations, assaults and nil acts of
violence cease at once. The public peace and good order will be pre
served upon all occasions and throughout the several counties, nnd ne
interference whatever will be permitted with officers and men in the dis
