Coal is very scurco in tho Pittsburg

Chicago, July ti. Largo consumers
of coal in Chicago are becoming

WILL THEY GET PARDON?
Alt Minnesota Dlsrnsslns; the Younger
Frellnlff Much Divided.
St. Paul, Minn., July 12. Tho one
topic at tho capital of Minnesota to
day la tho application for tho pardon
of tho Youngors, which will be con
sidered by the state board of pardons
Monday. Sontlmont Is divided, of
course, but tho overwhelming weight
of It is In favor of tho pardon.
Men well known throughout tho
state, who had heretofore bitterly
opposed every move in tho dlreoMon
of clemency toward tho Northflold
bank robbers, havo come forward to
speak for their ralcase within the last
'week. Tho press of Minneapolis and
St Paul favor the pardon, ond upon
this homo sentiment the friends of tho
Youngers base whatever bono tho vmav
hove that tho board of pardons will re
lease tho convict brothers. This hope,
however, Is slander, for It has for
many years been said In Minnesota
that a man who might bo instrumental
lu tho pardon of tho Youngers need
never look for another ofllco at tho
hands of tho people. For this reason
few people bollovo that tho board will
grnnt n rolcasc.
The board is composed of Governor
Clough, Chief Justice Start nnd At
torney General Chllds. It requires a
unanimous vote for the board to grant
u pardon. The board will meet to
consider applications for pardon Mon
day morning. Among tho very first
of these will bo tho pleni for the
It Is the general belief that Gover
nor Clough will vote for tho pardon,
but those who arc rlosest to Attorney
Gcncrnl Chllds and Chief Justice Start
say that neither of them has ever
given expression on tho subjoct. The
change of sontlmont In favor of the
pardon may Influence them, but at
least ono of them is expected to op
pose. The pardon would bo as much
a surprise as Is the change in public
sentiment which has taken place.
THE YOUNGERS SCORED.
Teller Unnker or the KorthUeld Dank
Objects to Their Pardon.
St. Paw., Minn., July 1. The only
individual protest of importance so far
mado against the pardon of the two
Younger brothers is from A. E. Hun
ker, gonernl manager of tho Wcatorn
Newspaper Union, who win teller of
tho Northllold bank in September,
1870, when thoy raided it. Mr. Hunker
"I was teller of the bank at the time
and witnessed tho attack upon Mr.
Hey wood and now carry a scar caused
by a bullet wound through my shoul
der, tnillctcd by Charley Pitts, ono of
tho gang. It seems to mo that state
ments of reputable cltlrens of North
field, mado directly after the raid,
should be entitled to as much credence
as statements mado by Colo Younger,
twenty-one ycarsaftor. Youngor'a
present "story c6ntalns many mis
statements and omissions. Ho at
tempts to shield Frank and Josso
Jiiipcs, whllo socking liberty himself.
He would have us bclicvo that ho was
at Northllold on that eventful day for
the purpose of preventing tho boys
from killing law-abiding citizens. Tho
cltlcn who followed the four robbers
to tho bank was J. S. Alien, and ho
was first to give the alarm on tho out
side. Ho was not ordered to stop by
Clcl Miller, but told to 'Git Don't
you holler, or I'll kill you.' Allen
'got,' but 'hollered.' If Cole Younger
told Miller or Styles not to ahoot
cither Allen or Wheoler, no one elso
"Colo Youngor did not go to tho
bank door and tell 'tho boys' to hasten
out until ufter Miller nnd Styles were
fioth killed nnd he himself was
wounded; nnd he enmo to tho bonk
door only once, just after I had beon
shot by Pitts. What Youngor sajd
was: 'Hotter got out, men. Tho
game Is up. They're killing all our
men.' Thosu In tho bank needed no
sccr.nd invitation, as they were bat
tled in their attempt to got the funds.
"Tho idea of Cole Younger sparing
Dr. Wheeler's life by considerately
aiming abovo his head and 'shooting
out a pane of glass' Is ridiculous. Ho
was uot so solicitous far the protection
of tho defenseless Swcdo, Andckson,
whom he shot down lu cold blood and
of whose murder ho pleaded guilty
when arrnlguod at Faribault Tho
statement of Cole that ho 'fired into
tho corner of tho building on Ilrldge
square to frighten people away,' etc.,
Is Imbecilic. Manning was on that cor
ner, and was there for business. Very
soon nftor Manning's appearance the
engagement became general and
everybody waa shooting to kill More
than thirty shots were fired at Man
ning and others on tho corner, ana it
Is miraculous how they escaped injury.
Tho fact simply shows that the rob
bers wore excited and were no hotter
marksmen than Manning and Wheeler.
"When ex-Govornor Pillsbury was
solicited to grant a pardon to the
Youngers several years ago, he re
plied; " 'When I think of the murdering
of poor neywood in cold blood and of
the unprovoked assaults on other law
abiding citizens of Northfleld, to say
nothing of other crimes committed by
these men, l do not think they will
live long enough to pay the penalty.
I cannot interfere.' "

tentions of F.aclt Hide
Wahiinoton, July !3. Tho Repub
lican conferees on the tariff bill, anx
ious to rench a complete agreement as
early as possible, wore at work yester
day for four hours. Soveral hundred
of'the minor amendments havo been
agreed upon, many of them, however,
mere changes of phraseology, and on a
large majority of theso the House con
ferees havo yielded.
To-day the first of the Important
points in dispute wore taken up nnd
at noon It was predicted that several
reports would hove to be mado bofore
an adjustment could bo reached, the
House conferees standing solidly by
their bill and the Senate conferees
being no loss tenacious.
The Scnato conferees laid before
the Houso members tho condition in
the Senato, whoro there is no actuul
majority for the Renubllenn nnd
where other than Republican votes
are necessary to pass tho bill or adopt
a confereneo report They nsscrtcd
that In 1H04 tho Democrats were in
better shape in tho Senato than tho
Republicans now. as they had an nc
tnal majority, yet tho House was tin
ally compellod to accept tho Senate
bill In order to pass It Nevertheless,
the House conferees replied that they
tuuiu noi accept mo Sonata amend
ments on many important items.
Lumber has been in dispute and tho
House conferees havo Insisted that tho
Houso rate on white pino must bo ac
cepted, nnd they havo beon supported
In this by Senator Burrows of Michi
gan. Th House rate was 32 and the
beuato reduced it to tl. The Senato
conferees say that If tho House rate is
restored it will provoke a long dis
cussion in the Senato, and that no ono
could tell when the bill would get out
of the Senate again.
Straw matting, which tho Senato
put upon the free list is another itom
of contention. The Houso conferee
havo refused to accept oven tho rate
which was originally reported in tho
Senate bill and stand for the Houso
Burlaps, cotton ties and other items
which were placed on the freo list by
tho Senate met with groat hostility
from the Houso conferees, and so far
nothing in the way of a compromise
by the Senato members has bucn ac
cepted. The differences in regard to sugar,
wool, cool and lead have not oven
been referred to yet and they are the
most serious of all.
The House conferees arc also Insist
ing upon higher compcnsntoryiluties
on manufactures of cotton on'kccount
of the duty of 20 per cent on raw cot
ton. On the subject of reciprocity the
drift of opinion scorns to bo in the
direction of tho Senate substitute, but
with certain of the House provisions.
That is, tho list of articles which enn
be used as a basis for reciprocity treat
ies will bo broadened, but tho Senate
provision requiring tho ratification of
'the treaties will be dlM-nr1.wl k.....

COAL SUPPLY CUT SHORT.
The Oreat Strike Affeetinir Prices Vis
ible Supply Small
PlTTsntmo, Pa-. July 13. Although
it is claimed that thousands of tons ol
coal have been stored up by dealers in
anticipation of the irrcat strike, which
entered on Its second week to-dav,
many operators and dealers not only
here, but In other cities affected by
the strike, are short on supplies and
prices havo almost doubled in tho last
three days. The visible supply of coal
Is very small. There are about ten
train loads of tho PltUburg product
upon the sidings of the Fort Wayne
railroad between this city and Alli
ance. Then there arc 8,000,010 to
10,000,000 bushels on flats and barges
along tho rivers. This might as
well bo in tho mines as far as satisfy
ing tho mil demand is concerned. It
will cost nearly an much to handle it
as It did to dig It, and if put upon tho
market it will be at a very stiff price.
Ihoro arc serious doubts, however, of
tho operators being nblo to put it
upon the market Minors will watch
tho coal in tho barges, nnd if an at-
wmpfc is mnuo lo load it for the rail
road trade tho handlers will bo in
duced to strike. In this the miners
expect to bo uncccssful.
The small ccmo operators of the Con
nellsvillo region, who own Independ
ent plants, will, it is said, shut down
tho mnjorlty of tholr ovens to-day and
begin to load tho raw coal for ship
ment At tho present price of bitu
minous coal there is more profit in it
in the raw state than could bo mado
by manufacturing it into coke.
Tho strikers propose to do every
thing possible to Induce the compara
tively few men still at work In Penn
sylvania and West Virginia to strike.
Thoy are not very sanguine of success,
because tho owners of the mines where
the cool diggers hove refused to quit
have been unusually generous with
their men. Nevertheless, union labor
organizers will go into tho field and
make strong appeals.
