members of the house, at the Fiftli

proved of the efforts being made by
political influences to settle the coal
"Politics and business will not mix,"
said Mr. Grow last night. "The politi
cal leaders can accomplish nothing by
Interfering. Tlie mines are being oper
ated under charters gianted before the
present constitution of the state of
Pennsylvania was adopted, and no leg
islative measures, at least so far as
those suggested, can lie effective. The
conferences held here within the last
few days will tend to retard rather
than hasten a settlement. I do not
think the coal strike will have any cf
fect 011 the election. Tlie people realize
that politics do not enter Into the con
troversy. It is a business miestlon that

It the election were held today I believe
the result would be the same as If the
strike had never started."

IT WILL FALL
AtuslG Hall Convention Will, In fill
. Probability, Be Declared
Ex-Sheriff Frthey Admits That the
Chances of It Being Sustained Are
Slim Anti-Machine and Union
Party Nominations Will Almost
Assuredly Be Knocked Out Hear
ings in These Latter Cases to Be
Had Today Arguments Made Sat
urday for and Against the Music
Hall and Melvin Hall Nomina
tions. From a Stuff Correspondent.
Harrlsburg, Oct. 1. It can be taken
ns almost a certainty that Messrs.
Howell and Saudo will have no place on
the otlleial ballot, in attempting to
override the will of the majority repre
sentation of their party their friends
Kven ex-Sheriff John J. Fahey, whose
vocabulary knows not the word "quit,"
practically admits that the result of
last week's hearing can bo nothing but
a defea't for the Music hull convention.
"It looks as If both tickets would be
thrown out," said Mr. Fahey tonight at
the liolton bouse, In conversation with
your correspondent. "The court seems
to think that the credentials were all
Illegal, because they were not sworn to
liy the vigllants and because the tally
lists did not accompany the returns to
the convention. These Irregularities in
fringe stale laws and as the Dau
phin Judges are sticklers on statutes, it
is questionable If they will concede that
the credentials were regular, because of
the fact that It was never customary
In either party to observe these stat
utes." .With the Music hall convention de
clared Irregular, the Howell-Snndo fac
tion of the party will have to fall back
on the Antl-Macliine and i'nion party
nominations for a place on the ballot.
Both were given Antl-Machlne nomina
tions and Mr. Howell was made a nomi
nee of the I'nion parly.
The Union party nominations will be
declared invalid without question. They
were made by four or live men on the
spur of the moment, one evening, in
the back room of a store, and, of course,
will not stand the scrutiny of Judges
Siinonton and Weiss. Mr. Howell's
supporters, It might be remarked, do
not propose to waste any time or effort
In defending the Union party nomina
tion. The whole defense has been
turned over to Dr. 11. X. Duniiell.
Hope of sustaining tlie Antl-Machlne
party nominations is not much, If any,
brighter. In this instance, the desper
ate methods of the Fuhey-Rehadt crowd
again went beyond the limit.' The paper
which was circulated for signatures
bore the caption, "Independent Demo
cratic Party." Before a sufficient num
ber of signatures had been secured it
was learned that this title had been
appropriated. Then a line was inserted
011 tlie "petition," giving C. C. Donovan
power of attorney to change the title
of the party, If It was found that the
title "independent Democratic Party"
had been appropriated at Harrlsburg.
When Mr. Donovan arrived at Harrls
burg ho found that this title had been
pre-empted. Thereupon lie ran a pen
ell through "indcpeiidenf Democratic
Party" and substituted "Antl-Machlne
Party." The law, it Is thought, will not
sustain this. The attorneys for the ob
jector will argue that men were In
duced to sign the petition as Independ
ent Democrats, and not as Anti-Machine
men. Xo one. It will be argued,
could be given power of attorney to
change the party allegience of the sign
ers by a few scratches of a lead pencil.
The hearing in the Melvin hall vs.
Music hall contest was concluded at -1.30
o'clock yesterday afternoon, Court had
asked for briefs on the law ami facts,
ami each side promised to present them
during the course of the evening. It Is
not likely that a decision will bo banded
down before Tuesday or Wednesday,
At the resumption of the hearing, Sat
urday morning, Major Warren offered
In evidence the Howell and Sanilo Antl
M.ifhino nomination papers, signed by
Fahey and the othoiH who were promi
nent In tho conduct of affairs at Muslo
hall, to show ilia! they lmd subscribed
themselves as members of the Antl-
Machlue party, and consequently were
not Democrats, as they professed to he,
when they signed the Music hall certifi
cates of nomination.
Not a Quorum.
More Flynnlti) delegates were called
to show that there was not a quorum
nt Music ball when Howell and Sando
wero nominated, It wus proven that
ninety-ulno regularly elected delegates
wero not at Music hall when the nomi
nations were made,
Tlio Faheyitcs re-called Secretary
Muhon to contradict various of (1ip wit
nesses who swore they left Music hall
ut tho time of (he Flynnltes' bolt, Mr,
Million was positive that sonio three or
four had falsely testified In this regard.
When the taking of testimony was
concluded, Judge Weiss suggested to
the Fahey attorneys that In tlie argu
ments they give special consideration
to tho question of what effect the de
fective credentials and tlie perfecting of
permanent organization before roll-call
would have on the constituency of the

Contractors Hampered bu Strlkei
at Various Localities About
VESSELS AFFECTED BY
THE GREAT STRIKES
Through Delay in Delivery of Ar
mor, Work Has Been Retarded on
the Battleships Maine, Missouri
nnd Ohio, and the Monitors Arkan
sas, Florida, Nevada and Wyo
mingShipbuilders Unable to Pro
cure Skilled Workmen.
By fccliulv Wire from Tin. Associated Press.
Washington, Oct. 12. "Progress upon
new vessels under construction during
the past year has not been satisfac
tory," says Hear Admiral Bowles, chief
of the naval bureau of construction, In
his annual report to the secretnry oC
the navy. All the larger vessels, ho
says, have been delayed by nou-dcllv-ery
of structural steel, while the ves
sels building at San Francisco were set
back by the ten months' strike, and the
holding- out of the workmen at Seattle
prevented any actual progress on tho
structure or tlie hull or the battleship
Nebraska, building there. The delay in
the deliveries of armor for the battle
ships Maine, Missouri and Ohio nnd tho
monitors Arkansas. Florida, Nevada
and Wyoming has retarded the com
pletion of those vessels, concurrently
with other causes. The inability of
shipbuilders to obtain a sufllcjent force
of skilled workers also has been, in
many cases, an Important factor in the
slow progress of the vessels.
A table is submitted showing in con
else form how the work on vessels
under construction has fallen behind.
For instance, the battleship Ohio Is
shown to have been twenty-nine months
behind her contract on the first of July.
This is not an Isolated case. Tho battle
ship Missouri is over twenty months
behind, the majority of the battleships
and cruisers aro over ten months be
hind and some of the torpedo craft nre
more than forty months behind the
dale of completion stipulated in the
contracts. However, Admiral Bowles
says that the extensive delays on the
torpedo boats arc being terminated by
the newly, modified conditions for their
delivery. The contractors' delay in be
ginning the construction of the vessels
of the Virginia, Pennsylvania and St.
Louis class, the chief constructor polnt.i
out, give Ills bureau nu opportunity tn
make a careful revision of the general
plans of those war vessels, which, ho
says, will result In a considerable iin
prov.einent in their military value and
in their capability. The plans for the
turrets of the Virginia class were de
veloped In more detail. An entire re
arrangement of the scheme for the
stowage of ammunition was made and
particular attention was given to n
scheme for coaling.
A table is given showing the ship?
added to (lie navy during the past year.
They were the battleship Illinois, and
the torpedo craft Decatur, Perry, Pre
ble, Blddle, Thornton and Wilkes.
