SCRANTON , Pa. , Oct. 1. At every
colliery in the anthracite region n
notice will bo posted Tuesday mornIng -
Ing aniiouiicihg a 10 per cent increase
In wages based on the present scale ,
tffectlvo October , 1 , and , that the oper
ators will arbitrate any grievance
their employes may present. There
Is no condition to bo attached us to
the men returning to work before the
arbitration shall begin , so it Is to bo
Inferred Uat the men arc privileged
to meet in convention and adopt any
plan of action they may deem advisa
ble bcforo entering upon arbitration.
It Is supposed the miners will come
together as members ot the union , fix
the minimum of the concessions they
will bo content with and then go forth
as Individuals to treat with their em
ployers tnrough committees of em
ployes. The arbitrations being con
cluded satisfactorily committees of
employes will report back to the con
vention of United Mine workers that
Uicty have come to a settlement and
the strike will then bo declared off.
This would avoid the recognition of
the union by the operators and at the
name time permit tl.o union to regu
late the terms of settlement.

FREMONT , Neb. , Sept. 20. Mrs.
James Clark , a former resident of thlb
city , and her two daughters , who sur
vived the Galvcston storm , arrived
here Sunday morning and are visiting
with friends until their home Is made
habitable. Mrs. Clark shows plainly'
the effects of the terrible nervous
strain to which nhe was subjected dur
ing the ton days she was obliged to
remain in the city after the storm.
"My experiences during those awful
days wfcre something I don't like to
talk about , " she iwld , "for It brings
back to me those horrible sights which
no human tongue or pen can describe.
I want to forget them , but it Is impos
sible. Wo were warned of the storm
the morning of the Gth/but paid little
attention to it , thinking It only an un
usually severe blow. Thnt morning I
went down to the beach or. the car to
see the storm. The waves were run
ning very high and destroying a good
many small bath houses , small shops
and temporary buildings. I went back
: o the house and noticed then that
the wind was Increasing tmd I heard
rumors that the water w.is coming up
from the bay side of the city. That
iftcrnoon I saw a largo cross on the
Lower of a church near us swaying in
the wind and there appeared to be
much excitement on Broadway , the
street where I lived , but tven then I
didn't anticipate any trouble. About
4 o'clock my son drove up to the house
In a brewery wagon drawn by one lone
mule and told us that the water was
coming up and we must le ve. It was
raining fearfully hard and the wind
was blowing from the north. Myself'
mil daughters and two other families
got into the wagon , and we started
tor the brewery , which wo thought was
the safest place. We were on about
the highest point of land in the city ,
but even hero the waters of the bay
and gulf met and we could see the
waves coming up the streets in both
directions. When wo got to the brew
ery our team was just about covered
with water. My son carried us in. The
engine and boiler room was filled with
water and we went up en the next
floor. There were then about 100 pee
ple there. They kept coining in all
night , until there were more than 500
there. How they got there I don't
know , for , the water was everywhere.
We could hear nothing but the roar
of the wind , the splash of the waves
and the crash of falling buildings. "

TORN TO PIECES BY A TRAIN.
rorrlbly Futnl UradoiCruMlng Accident
nt I'llRcr.
STANTON , Neb. , Oct. 1. At the
railroad crossing just east of the vil
lage of Pilgcr , in this county , Ed Us-
tlck was struck and killed by a special
freight. He had been In Pllger and
was returning home. He was seen by
a number going toward the railroad in
n wagon , his teani going at a smart
Jog. Ustlck had his i.ead bowed upon
his brcoat , apparently giving no atten
tion to his team or the surroundings.
His team slowed to a walk as they
approached the track and just not
over it as the train struck the wagon
back of the fore wheels. Ustlck was
thrown unuer the engine nnd dragged
for the distance of over a hundred
feet. His death was probably Instan
taneous. His intestines , stomach ,
heart , lungs and liver were torn out
of the body and lay some thirty feet
from It. The right arm was cut off
and there was hardly a whole bone
In the body. The undisputed evidence
showed that the trainmen made every
effort to avoid the collision as eoon as
they discovered the danger , though at
the time of the accident the train was
running at a greater rate of speed
than permitted by the ordinances of
the village of Pilger , within whose
limits the accident happened. A
broken jug , which had contained
whiskey was found near the corpse.
Slimier Trlul ut Alliance.
ALLIANCE , Neb. , Oct. 1. District
court convened here Monday with
Judge W. H. Westover of iiushvilUi
presiding. This will be the most im
portant term of court ever held in
I3ox Butte county from the fact that
there are several very imprtant crim
inal cases to be tried. There are five
criminal cases on the docket , two of
which are for murder in the first de
gree. Monday was occupied in passIng -
Ing on motions and setting cases down
for trial. Tuesday the case of the
Jtato of Nebraska against Richard M.
'Jline was called for trial. In this
: aso dine is charged with shooting
mil killing one B. C. Richardson last
August. Cline and his wife are trav
eling musicians and when they came
lo Alliance were hired to play music
In Richaruson's saloon. Some diffi
culty arose between Cline and Rich
ardson and Cline was expelled from
the saloon. This angered him very
much and lie got a revolver and son
after met Richardson in a re&taurant
which joins the saloon and after some
words with Richardson the parties
came together and Richardson slapped
Slino and immediately Cline shot him
through the abdomen , from the ef
fects of which ho died coon after. It
Is alleged on the part of the defense
that before Cline and his wife were
nut out of the saloon that Cllne's wife
liad i - > en insulted by a guest of Rich
ardson's saloon and Cline took the
matter up and Richardson took the
part of his guest and from this the
shooting resulted.
The state is represented by County
Attorney Smith P. Tuttle , Judge A.
W. Crites of Chadron , B. F. Oilman
and William Mitchell of Alliance and
the defense by Judge F. G. Hamer
of Kearney and R. C. Noleman of
Alliance. Much interest is taken in
the progress of the trial and the court
room is taxed to its capacity at each
session.
