It distinctly understood that ho had
never been asked by tho operators to

said he, "that I had refused u confer

tho request of Mr. Dolan. Wo will

That is tho lowest rate tho miners
will ncccp'. 1 1 must be sixty-nlnu cents
or the strike will bo continued until

Previous to tho conference a lurgo
number of operators mot In tho cor
ridors of tho Monongahcla house.
Many were opposed to breaking tho
ft'rlko by Importing men and qulto a
large number urged tho acceptance of
lb miners' terms. It was claimed
that it was not the Pittsburg operators
who wanted to compromise or break
'.tho strike, but that It was tho large
mine owners and lake shippers.
AN OPEN CONFI.IU.NCE.
The conferonce ended at noon, after
an agreement had been miidu for n
genernl conference of oporutors and
the miners' officials at 2 o'clock this
afternoon. Tho miners' officials In
silted on all the operators belug pres
ent and it wus decided to muko the
conference an open one.
The operators who had been kept on
the outside wero jubilant when this
decision was arrived at. Some said
they would favor tho granting of tho
49-cont rnto at tho opening of the con
ference if it was seen that tho miners'
officials would not consent to n com
promise to let out tho operators who

From a rellablo sourci It was learned
rtbat if the operators start the mines
on the Jlneo laid down, othor mines
will also be started by the minors. It
Is proposed to select operators who
svre not represented at tho confeVonce
ud who art) friendly to tho minors.
Jliey will bo given permission to mine

ofllcluls are making arrangements to
Jiavo a fund on hund to send foreign

"With mines operated under tho juris

DOLLAR WHEAT TOO HIGH

Kansas Citv, Mo., Aug. 24. Thore
were not enough people In love with
dollar wheat to tnko all that was
offered around that prlco In Chicago
this morning, and Scptcmbor dropped
to 05); cents beforo tho buying orders
were equal to tho offering. Tho prlco
reacted to lis cent, and for tho great
er part of tho day ranged around 07
cents, which, considering tho rapidity
of last week's advance, was looked
upon as a very small, reaction. Tho
market was very norvous, but tho vol
ume of business Was not largo?
Cash prices In Kansas City declined
more than Chicago prices. Tho re
ceipts here wcro 053 cars tho largest
of the season, and tho tables on tho
Iloor of tho exchange wero piled so
full of samples that buyers concluded
to take life easy und showed nothing
llko the nnxloty they displayed last
week. Nevertheless there was a lartro
demand and prices did not decllno as
much us some people expected There
wero hulos of soft wheat at 81 and
81.01, but later the price dropped to OS
cents. Hard wheat, which sold as
high ns l)"J cents Saturday, was pur
chased to-day at prices ranging from
Vi to Oi.W cents.
Tho first curb quotation in Chicago
for September wheat was 81.02);, nn
ndvance of 3 cents over Saturday's
closing prlco. At tho s:uno time 33?;
cents wus bttl for September corn, 2
cents over Saturday's close. December
wheat sold between 81.0 J and
81.00;, while 35; cents was bid for
December corn. Liverpool's oponlng
wheat advanco this morning was
equal to Cr; cents per bushoL Sat
urday's advnnce In Chicago was 7 cents
per bushel. Tho Liverpool advance
in corn, equal to 2 2-5:i 1-3 cents per
bushel, was considerably over tho
Chicago advance. Tho 1:3J p. in. Liver
pool cables showed a recession of 1
penny In some wheat futures nud on
this the curb prico for September
wheat hero dropped to 8I.00';."
All the buoyancy was out of wheat
when the opening boll rang upon tho
regular board. Tho highest prlco
touched In tho Initial trading was 09);
for September, the exacl quotation at
which tho market closed on Saturday.
Simultaneous sales nt the opening
were au uio way tlown to U8X and In
a few minutes later sales wero being
recorded at 07 and oven 00;. Enor
mous quantities of wheat wero for
sale from every direction. It was hard
to sell, buyers being rolutlvely very
scarce. The lowest point reached wus

Klondike gold nnd n Klondike miner
hold tin Informal levee nt the Capital
hotel, Lincoln, last Sunday nnd more
solid facts about the region were ob
tained than in tho stories of the Pa
utile coast correspondents. Tho miner
was William Hillings, for twenty-two
years a resident of Fulls City, Neb.,
and for the past three years a resldont
of Alaska. Ho arrived hero Saturday
on his way to sec his wlte at Falls City
IIu is not it millionaire, but hu says ho
and his .partner brought out about
S3, 000 lu dust and they have six claims
located, tin ce quart, lodes and three
placers, that are rich and from which
they expect to take out much gold
'J'ho phrase that was oftonest on Mr.
Hillings' lips Sunday, und ho came
buck to it again 'and again, was
"tongue can't tell tho hardships that a
man endures ip there." lio also re
marked "I wouldn't spend another
winter In Alaska without 1 wus with a
crowd for all tho gold in the territory."
Last winter he and his partner spent
under forty feet of snow, twelve miles
from another soul and four months
without seeing another human fucc.
This partner was 11. H. Herman of

"You ought to bo chums," suggested
"Well, I guess wo nro," responded
"What did you do till winter?"
"Wulktd buck and forth iu the cab
in, read a little, cooked and ato a little
and slept a little. No, we didn't play
cards unv, for wo didn't have any
curds. Never thought of cards when
we started. Wo had a tunnel out to
the open air which wo kept open, but
there was forty feet of snow over us.
There wasn't any door to our cabin,
but we kept warm by burning wood
ruthcr carefully, for we hnd to go to
the side hills for It, and after the snow
enmo there was danger of bringing it
down with us. We didn't care to bo
burled in that wny.
"If a man really wants to go to
Alaska, ho should wait till next spring
nnd take the first boat up next April,
lie should have provisions for two
years and money enough to get back
on. Get over th'o pass just as soon as
tho snow starts to melt nwa-. There
will bo patches of snow packed so you
can get across thoin. After the cliiim
is located, the summer from Mnv till
August can be put in getting ready to
work it, and fixing for the long w lifter.
It takes ono season's work to get u
claim in fix for work. Then when the
wnter begins to comu down in the fol
lowing spring, start in nud clean up
to bed rock. And when it gets Au
gust 1 you just hike out of there.
Don't suy It's a fair day today and I'll
go tomorrow. It's that season of the
year wheu the snow comes nnd you
tioirt want to get cauglit by It."
