estcrdatTs Goal Output In the An
thracite Reoton Estimated
at 100,000 Tons.
Their Mines Are in. Good Condition
and Thero Is Less Friction. Be
tween the District Superintendents
nnd the Men Who Have Returned
to Work But Few Complaints Re
ceived at Mr. Mitchell's Headqunr
ters More Work ind Less Tnlk.
0y Exclusive Wire from The Associated Press.
Wilkes-Barre, Pa., Oct. 21. There
wore twenty-two more mines in oper
ation in the nnthtncltc region today
than yesterday, and the output will bo
close to 100,000 tons. This Is as near as
can be estimated. From reports re
ceived, the total output yesterday did
not exceed 75,000 tons. "When In lull
operation -the mines employ, In every
capacity, about 145,000 men and boys.
Of this number it Is estimated that S2,
000 were nt work today. A more amic
able feeling prevailed today between
employes and the companies.
The excitement over the commence
ment of work yesterday wore off some
what today. In other words, there was
more work and less talk. Less com
plaints were also received at President
Mitchell's headquarters.
The Delaware, Lackawanna and
Western company continues to lead in
production. There are two reasons for
this. First, the mines are in good con
dition and there is less friction between
the district superintendents and the
men who have returned to work. The
work of clearing up those mines that
are filled with debris from falls is be
ing pushed forward as rapidly as pos
sible, and the fact that they are not in
readiness to operate is a great disap
pointment to the mine owners.
Ex-Congressman M. B. 'Williams, one
of the largest individual operators in
the Wyoming region, said his mines
would not be In readiness to resume
before next week, but he would take all
his old employes, including steam men,
back, because, he claimed, they had
served him faithfully ln.the past. The
trouble with the individual operators In
the Lehigh region Is expected to blow
over In a day or two, and it is said
here on good authority, tonight, that
all collieries in the Lehigh and Schuyl
kill regions that are in condition to
mine will resume next Monday, and
that all the union miners will be re
employed. The mine inspectors are
very vigilant and they have refused to
give permission to the starting up of
mines where the superintendents can
not furnish satisfactory proof that the
underground workings are perfectly
sa f e.
Mitchell Very Reticent.
President Mitchell continues very re
ticent and refuses to be quoted on any
move made by the operators, either re
garding the treatment of the old em
ployes or the advance in the price of
coal. The evidence which lie will pre
sent to the arbitration commission is
now being arranged in systematic
form. When Mr. Mitchell was asked
todny regarding the published report
that there was some1 doubt whether ho
would be permitted to appear before
'ho commission on behalf of the minors,
10 said that he presumed the miners
joulcl select any counsel they saw Jit to
present their case before the commis
sion. President Mitchell pledged him
pelf before the miners' convention hold
in this city, the beginning of the week,
to present the case of the union miners
before the arbitration board. Mr. Mitch
ell has received a call to Washington
and will leave hero Sunday afternoon.

Engineer Dan O'Neill Is Shot to
Death, Near Drummond, Mont.
The Murderer Escapes.
Bjr Exclusive Wire from The Associated Press.
Missoula, Mont., Oct. 24. An east
bound passenger train on the Northern
Pacific was held up last night, near
Drummond, Mont., forty-five miles
from this city, and Engineer Dan
O'Neill was killed.
The train, which included mail, bag
gage and express cars and nine coaches,
arrived after midnight at a place two
miles west of Drummond. Here the
train was signalled to stop and the en
gineer slowed up. While doing so, he
saw a man creeping toward him over
the tender. The man, who was armed,
called to O'Neill to stop the train in
stantly. The engineer took In the situation at
once, and was about to pull the throttle
to start the train at full speed when the
robber divined his purpose and fired at
him. Tho shot took instant effect and
the engineer fell dead.
The robber then proceeded to ride the
express and mall cars. He plundered
tho regular mall and blew open the safe
In the express car, which was wrecked
by tho explosion.
The amount of plunder which he se
cured is not known at present, but It
is supposed to be large. The excite
ment on the train was Intense. The
sudden stoppage of the train, followed
soon by the explosion, spread alarm
among the train hands and the passen
gers, The darkness of the night and
tho loneliness of the place added to the
general scenes of terror.

It was assumed that at least eight
men were engaged in the hold-up, but

alone perpetrated the murder and rob
bery. Dan O'Neill, the dead engineer, lived
In this city and had a wife and five
children. He hud been in the service
of the Northern Paclllc company longer
than any other engineer.

Mohonk Lake, N. Y.. Oct. 24. Tho
Mohonk Indian conference opened its
session today with an address by John
Seger, who has been superintendent of
an agency school in Oklahoma since
1S72. Mr. Seger related many experi
ences illustrative of Indian character
and Indian tendencies. He said that
the recent revival of the sun dances
among the Cheyeiines and other tribes
had had a demoralizing effect, pro
moting idleness, prolllgacy and other
evils. Ho thought the dances should
be immediately and absolutely prohib
ited. Mrs. Page guve an Interesting de
scription of the remarkable work along
social, industrial and humanitarian
lines conducted for the Indians by the
Mohonk lodge, an Institution located
near the Cheyenne camp.
The Rev. Dr. Alexander Twombly,
who has been a resident of Hawaii for
some time, addressed the conference on
the present situation In those Islands.
He said that conditions there were dark
and depressing. Tho times are hard,
owing to unwise and demagogic action
of the local legislature, dopilnated by
me Home rule party. Crjine, drunken
ness, idleness and other vices were on
the increase. He attributed most ot
the evils existing to be practically un
limited suffrage conferred upon the
people, which hud thrown political
power so largely in the hands of tho
Ignorant, incapable and unreliable ele
ments of the population, thus render
ing the way easy for the greedy, sellish
and corrupt politicians and self-seekers
to further their own schemes. Tho
worst elements In Hawaii today, he de
clared, were the low-down Americans,
carpet-baggers, adventurers and other
scum from the states, who had drifted
there in recent years. Some of these
men had obtained federal appointments
in the Judiciary and other oillces, and
had brought shame and scandal upon
,tlu administration of law and justice.
A limitation upon the franchise seemed
to bo absolutely Imperative If tho local

that the only hope for the future lay

the Introduction of Chinese labor upon
