'Suspension in'.Anthracitc Mines
'MEN ' LISTEN TO NO RESTRAINT
Will Fight Mine Ownero to the Bitter
End Greatest Labor Struggle In
, ' History Is Freely Predicted Hundred -
, dred and Forty-five Thousand Idle.
Hazloton , Pa. , May 1C. The anthra
cite minors In convention lute yesterday -
day afternoon decided to continue the
trilco of the 145,000 men against the
mine owners and to fight it out to the
titter end. The matter of calling out
the engineers , firemen , and pump run
ners will bo decided by the delegates
today. The vote to continue the sus
pension was as follows : Total vote
cast , 811 ; for strike , 40114 ; against
strike , 349 % ; majority for strike ,
The step taken by the miners , after
practically considering the matter for
two months , has wiped out the uncer
tainty of the situation and it is freely
predicted that the most serious labor
struggle In the history of the country ,
If not In the world , Is about to begin.
That is the view taken by nearly
every miner. While the leaders are
cautious and will not forecast their
actions , It is not unlikely that the
miners' fight will bo carried into the
bituminous coal regions and Into other
fields of industry. Mine workers for
18 months have been looking forward
to the strike that Is upon them. They
have saved their money and are con
sidered to bo In better shape today
for a fight than they were In the great
strike of 1900. That struggle ended
In the mine owners giving the men a
10 per cent increase after six weeks'
suspension. The operators are on
record as being unalterably opposed
to granting the men any concessions
and they have personally Informed
the mine workers' leaders of that fact.
The workmen fear the present fight
may mean the destruction of their or
ganization , because they believe the
mine owners are bent more on wreckIng -
Ing their union than they are In op
posing the demands for higher wages
end shorter work days.
i President Mitchell's advice to the
miners was for peace , and he gave it
to them in the plalriest and most
forceful language. He was ably as
sisted by President Fancy and Secre
tary Hartlein of the lower 'district ,
and Secretary Dempster of the upper
territory. President Nichols of the
First district was the great champion
of the strike advocates. Mr. Mitchell ,
who was the last to speak , was list
ened to with the greatest attention.
It is also said that a telegram was
read from the American Federation
of Labor against a permanent suspen
sion. But the delegates would not
listen , and amid considerable sup
pressed excitement the vote was
taken. For a time It looked as though
the peace advocates would win , but
when delegation after delegation from
the lower district , the last to be called ,
answered "yes , " It was seen that the
men who favored a fight had won. The
result was received by the convention
with applause , which , however , was
not very enthusiastic or prolonged.
, The men appreciated the seriousness
of their decision , which no doubt
dampened their ardor. The proposi
tion to call out the engineers , firemen
and pump runners was separated from
the main question early in the discus
elon. There was an 'almost equal di
vision in this matter and the debate
became so Involved that It was de
cided to consider that phase of the
question separately. The men , having
thrown down the gauntlet to their em
ployers , have taken renewed courage
and It would not be surprising if the
convention today decided to "call out
the other employes referred to. The
miners insist that nearly nil the en
glneers , firemen and pump runners be
long to their organization and say
they can get them all to quit if they
( want to. In the event that this is
brought about , it would do Incalcula
bio damage to the mines , throih
flooding , unless the companies can
succeed In filling the men's places.
; Asks Protection for Chinese.
Denver , May 1C. Governor Orman
received the following telegram from
Secretary of State Hay : "Tho Chinese
neso minister asks protection against
threatened violence and forcible ex
elusion of Chinese at Sllverton , repre
eentlng that ono has been shot , others
badly beaten and a house occupied by
some of them broken into and

'crs Warm Up on Philippine De-
'cVg. ' and Become Personal ,
. .gton , May 16. The houao
yestercuy was plunged Into an excit
ing debate on Plilllpplnu ulTalrs. Thus
far the subject of alleged atrocities In
the Islands has engaged the attention
of the senate alone and only occa
sional echoes have been heard In the
house. But yesterday the reports of
cruelty and outrage wcro rehearsed
In the house with vehement bitter
ness. The naval bill was the order of
the day , but It received only scant at
tention , after the allegations of Phil
ippine outrages wcro presented. A
speech by Vandlver ( Mo. ) reciting In
stances of alleged outrage brought on
the discussion. Personalities and re
criminations were freely passed
about. Vandlver was supported In his
criticisms by Wheeler ( Ky. ) . whllo
vehement defense of the American
soldiers was nmdo by Hepburn ( la. ) ,
Grow ( Pa. ) , Hill ( Conn. ) , W. A.
Smith ( Mich. ) and Lesslor ( N.Y. ) .
General debate on the naval bill
closed nt 4 o'clock nnd when the
house adjourned the mcasuro was
being read for amendment.
Hepburn declared that Vnndlver
had seized on every exaggerated story
In order to attack the American sol
"And this Is done , " assorted Hop
burn , bitterly , "to secure a miserable
political advantage. "
Williams asked 'If Hepburn defend
ed the order to make Samar a > "howl

"I believe that Is a lie , " responded
Hepburn. "I believe no American of
ficer ever made such an order ; I be
lieve It to be a slander , pure and
Philippine Debate In Senate.
Washington , May 16. An extend
ed speech by McLatirln ( Miss. ) in
opposition to the pending Philippine
government bill was a feature of yes'
terday's session of the senato. The
Mississippi senator vigorously as
sailed the administration's policy In
the Philippines. Ho deprecated the
outrages perpetrated In the Islands ,
whether they were committed by the
Filipinos or the Americans. They
were , in his Judgment , the natural
growth , of the government's policy ,
for which , ho maintained , the Repub
lican party was responsible. Ho
urged the abandonment of the policy
In the Interest of humanity and Jus
tice. Ho declared that the minority
was not discussing the pending meas
ure to obtain political capital , as all
the political material which the Demo
crats desired had been made for them
by the Republicans in this congress.
The bill providing for the erection
of a union railway station In Wash
ington and the fortifications appropri
ation bill were passed.

borhood of Georgetown for two hours ,
terrifying the people there.
No person has yet been nblo to
approach within eight miles of the
now crater of the Soufriero volcano.
But , Judging from what can be seen
from a considerable distance , the old
lake at the summit of the mountain
has disappeared. The numerous fis

to throw out vapor and the subterra

afternoon of Monday a dense volume
of steam and smoke rose from the vol
cano and the whole Island was cov
ered by a peculiar mist. The inhala
tion of noxious vapors Is Increasing
the spread of sickness.
Starvation threatens1 the poorer
classes of the afflicted district. Near
ly every remaining negro hut in the
Carib country contains decaying bodies
ies and the horrible stench Is driving
people away. Mutilated bodies are
tied with ropes and dragged to the
trenches , where they are burled.
Some times bodies arc cremated. The
local government is feeding and shel

Nearly two thousand deaths on this

PYRES FED WITH PETROLEUM.

Fires Which Light Up Island.
New York , May 1C. In the de
stroyed city of St. Pierre the work on
the ruins is being continued In an un
satisfactory manner , says a Fort de
France dispatch to the Herald.
The dead are being burned , the
pyres being fed with petroleum and
tar. Great fires are kept going ,
which , at night , light up the entire
island , and which , being seen at St.
Lucia , led to the belief that Fort do
France had burned. Although thou
sands have been burned , many still
remain to be cremated.
Some of the walls of the houses that
still stand crumble and fall at touch.
Some Idea of the terrible heat that
poured down from Mont Peleo may
