Complaints Are Heard.
I5y Exrluihe Wire Irom Tlic Associated Prs.
Mahanoy City, Pa., Nov. 5. The an
thracite .strike commission ended its
tour of observation of the conl Holds In
the Panther Creek valley today, and
the members of the party will return
to their homes tomorrow, and will meet
again at Scranton, Pa., on November
It, to take the testimony of the miners.
The bluest day's work of the entire
trip was accomplished today, when tho
commissioners made a. eomplete'lnspec
tion of two large collieries and a tour
of the region lying- between Mount Car
mel and this city.
Six working days have been consumed
in traveling from place to place in the
anthracite coal regions, and the arbi
trators feel they are now qualified to
sit in judgment on the controversy be
tween tho mine owners and their em
ployes. In all. the commissioners were
lowered into seven mines of varying
conditions and went through several
breakers. They met the general super
intendents, the mine superintendents
and the foremen of the various col
lieries visited, and also personally
talked with the grimy coal diggers In
the dark gangways and chambers hun
dreds of feet below the earth's surface.
They heard the grievances the workers
claim they have; and also heard the
companies' side of complaints. Resides
this, the commissioners gained a some
what technical knowledge of mining In
Its many different features that will bo
of the greatest assistance to them.
They will be able to understand ques
tions and ask questions where they
would not have been able to understand,
them if they had not been underground.
The commissioners' special train left
Mount Carmel at 7.H0 a. in. and first
visited the Potts colliery In Columbia
county, several miles from Mount Car
mel. It Is owned by the Philadelphia
and Reading Coal and Iron company.
The breaker at this colliery is different
from those seen by the commissioners
at other places. They went all over tho
building and were much Interested In
the workmen employed there, among
whom were many boys.
From the Potts colliery the train pro
ceeded through 'Ashland. Cllrardville
and Gillierton to the Maple 21111 col
liery of the Philadelphia and Heading
Coal and Iron company in the Maha
noy valley, a few miles from Shenan
doah. This Is one of the best mines In
the entire anthracite Held and Is
equipped with all modern appliunces.
The bottom of the shaft Is 7110 feet be
low the surface, and during their two
hours' stay In the workings the com
missioners went about a mile and a
halt from the shaft. Tho whistle blew
the noon hour just as the party came
to the surface. At tho breaker, nearby,
tho commissioners talked with the boys,
whoso faces were, black from coal dust.
Judge Gray and Bishop Spuuldlng
seemed the most interested in the lads
and each gave some of them small coin.
From the Maple Hill colliery the com
missioners' train was run down through
Mahanoy City and Tamaqita to the
Panther Creek valley. Then the arbi
trators visited the No. S colliery of the
l-ehlgh Coal and Navigation company
at Coaldale. Tho entrance to the mine
was through a ilrirt. which is a hori
zontal opening Into tho base of a moun
tain. About one hundred feet Inside
the entrance the party was lowered by
means of a shaft to tho bottom, which
is S50 feet under ground,
The mine proved to be quite wW, and
everyone In the party got more or less
of ,a wetting. As the members of the
commission passed along the gangway,
in mine cars drawn by mules, they
went under worked out chutes, from
which water llowed la streams. While
going under one chute, tho mules
stopped, and the water fell Into one of
the cars, thoroughly soaking all Its
occupants. It was an uncomfortable
position to be in, and tho commission
ers In tho other cars took It us a good
Joke on their colleagues, who were di
rectly under the chute, ,
The pa'rty went to the end of two
long gungwnys, about a half mile in
length, and up Into a very steep chute,
where they found miners at work, lit
order to get Into the chute, tho com
missioners had to climb a ladder and
crawl over -broken coal through a
small opening. Their hands and faces
woro smeared with coal dust when
they came out.
After leaving tho mine, a number of
mlno workers crowded around chair
man Gray, of tho commission, and told
him that they had been discriminated
against by the company in the matter
of getting their places back. They said
Superintendent liehner would not tako
them back, for somo reason unknown
to them, and that other men had been
given their positions. On tho other
hand, tho company olllelals claimed
that they havo not enough work nt this
time for all the men, owing to repair
work now being dono In tho mines.
Judge Gray listened tq them, but made
After their tour 'ae day, the com
missioners arrive, .n this city at r
o'clock and wl'JVepart from tho lat
Knler hotel. V .lorrow morning they
will leave for i'ottsvllto at about 0
o'clock and wll Idepart from the lat
ter place for their homes during the
afternoon. Tho commissioners' special
cars will bo run to Washington, y
way of Philadelphia, and from the lat
ter some of the commissioners will go
to New York city.
Tim commissioners held a conference
In tho parlor of tho hotel tonight, at
which arrangements for tho holding of
the hearings and also the mode of pro
cedure in taking testimony were dis
cussed. It was announced that Com
missioner Watklns, whose homo Is In
Scranton, has been delegated to make
arrangements for the meeting In Scran
ton. It I likely the hearing will bo
held In the court house there.
Tho status of tho Independent coal
companies In tho present arbitration
proceedings Is not quite clear. All of
them have been invited to participate
In the hearing If they so desire. Tho
Lehigh Coal and Navigation company,
It Is understood, have agreed to abide
by tho decision of tho commission, ns
also have several small Independent
concerns. It is believed that all of
them will accept tho arbitrators' de
cision. If they do this, the commission
Is likely to tako up the grievances
which have arisen at some of the Inde
pendent collieries since the strike was
declared off. The commission has
steadfastly refused to visit any col
lieries where the owners have not
agreed to abide by the award of the
Anthracite Coal Carrying Kailways
Are Accused of Violating Inter
State Commerce Laws.
Dy Kicludve Wire Irom The Associated Press.
Washington, Nov. 5. The complaint
of William Randolph Hearst, of New
York, against anthracite coal carrying
railways, charging that the hitter's
rates for the transportation of coal
from the anthracite fields to New Kng
Iand, New York, Maryland and tho
District of Columbia are unreasonable

subject the consumers at the points
named, and the producers of such coal
who are not common carriers or cor
porations owned and controlled by

judice and disadvantage, In violation
of the inter-state commerce act. It
charges that the rates are discriminat

tion rates for bituminous coal for much
longer distances, and also as compared
with the defendants' rates and charges

IN A STUDY
Rev. W. G. Rabe and AUQij&ta
BusgIi Found Clasped In Each
It Is Thought That the Pair Had
Fallon Asleep and That the Stove
Flnine Blew Out, the Gas Escaped
and That Death Was Accidental.
Tho Woman Had Been, ft Mission
ary in Omaha for the Last rive
By Exclusive Wire from The Assoclite A Fiei.
Omaha, Neb., Nov. 5 Clasped In each
other's arms, lying on the floor of the
pastor's study In the German Baptist
church hero early today, Oscar Bcrndos,
janitor of the church, discovered the
dead bodies of Rev. W. C. Rabe, pastor,
and Augusta Busch, a missionary and
assistant to the pastor. Death had been
caused by asphyxiation. The room was
lllled with gas, a jet and a burner of
a small stove being partly turned on.
The bodies were lying on the lloor,
the woman's head being pillowed on
some cushions. They evidently had
lain In that position for several hours.
There seems to be little doubt that
death was accidental.
It Is believed that the pair had fallen
asleep, the stove flame blew out and
the gas escaped. The bodies were rigid
and death evidently occurred during
the early hours of the previous evening.
Miss Busch roomed at tho home of
Janitor Berndes, nnd Mr. Rabe at the
house of Harry Dirksen. Miss Busch
went to the Dirksen home yesterday
morning and remained there until about
0 o'clock In the evening, engaged in
sewing. She left for her home alone,
and It Is possible that she met Mr. Rabe
on her way home and that the two
went to his study In the rear of the
church, where the tragedy occurred.
They had been good friends, but no
stronger feeling was apparent to those
who knew them. Mrs. Berndes sup
posed the dead woman was In her home
until Mrs. Schalkau, housekeeper for
Mr. Rabe, reported that he had not
been at home during the night. Then
It was discovered that Miss Busch had
not occupied her room and a search
was made for them this morning. The
janitor went to the pastor's study and
found the door locked and the key on
the inside, and he detected the escap
ing gas. Quickly he summoned a po
lice officer and the door was broken
Gas Slowly Escaping.
In the center of the very small study
the bodies lay, the heads a few feet
from the door. The woman's face was
covered with froth and had begun to
turn purple. One gas jet above the
pastor's table was partly turned off,
and from a stove gas was slowly es
caping. The coroner was notified and the re
mains were taken to the morgue.
It was thought at first tho two had
committed suicide, for on the table was
an open letter, a neatly arranged bou
quet, Mr. Rube's watch and glasses,
and his hat, Miss Kusch's gloves and
handkerchief, and neatly folded on tho
back of a chair was her jacket. The
letter was written In German, nnd when
translated was found to be an answer
to another letter, which Mr, Rabe had
received. There was nothing In it to
Indicate that the two hud Intended
taking their lives,
Around the front and side of the
church building a large crowd of church
members stood sorrowing and uncov
ered as the bodies were taken from the
Mr. Rabe was 31 years of age and
camo to Ohio from Buffalo, New York,
when ho was chosen pastor of the Ger
man Baptist church. In that state ho
left a wife, who is attending a mission
ary school, and one son. He was held
in high esteom by his congregation.
Miss Ilusch was 01 years of age, and
had been a missionary In Omaha for
the last five years, She camo here from
