Strike Commission Inspects In
side and Outside Workings.
. Commissioners Spend Busy Day Far
Down In the Earth Fourth and
Fifth Regiments Break Camp and
Return to Their Homes.
Qcranton , Pa. , Oct. 31. The seven
commissioners appointed by President
Roosevelt to adjust the differences ex
isting between the anthracite mine
workers and their employers , made a
lour of the extreme upper coal field ,
and saw every step taken in the pro
duction of coal from the tlmo it is
"blasted from the ground , hundreds of
feet below the surface , up to the point
whore it is sent to market ready for
the use of the consumer.
The arbitrators had an Interesting
flay and returned to their hotel grimy
from coal dust and tired after eight
busy hours of observation and investi
gation. The trip was qulto n novelty
to most of those in the commissioners'
party , BODIO of whqm never havinc
been in the hard coal regions. The
commissioners displayed the greatest
Interest in every feature of coal min
ing ami went about their work in a
manner that was pleasing to both the
mining superintendents and the rep-
rescntatlves of the mine workers who
accompanied the president's commis
sioners. The seven arbitrators had to
endnro many discomforts , making
their way through wet places in the
mines , almost crawling along some of
the gangways in the workings and
passing through clouds of coal dust In
the breakers. Notwithstanding this ,
their eagerness for information was
not diminished and they expect to
put in another hard day's work in this
It would bo unfair to say that one
commissioner displayed more interest
than another , but It can bo truly said
that Bishop Spaldlng asked more
questions than any ono of the others.
Ho was usually In the center of a
group of commissioners and asked
many questions of these who are em
ployed In and about the mines. All
the commissioners were good listeners
but poor talkers when it came down to
getting an expression from them on
any feature of the mining business.
From their actions it is certain that
they have agreed not to-say what they
think of the questions that will come
before them ,
The arbitrators had an Interesting
tlmo at the Colobrook breaker at Car-
bomlalo. They were much Interested
in the men and boys who are employed
in picking slate and "bonoy" from the
coal. It Is hero where ono of the
principal bones of contention between
the employes and employer Is found.
The miners maintain they are often
unjustly decked by the docking bosses
for the amount of alato , bonoy or other
refuse found in the coal. The com
missioners watched the work of the
boas closely and saw him dock several
minors , because , in his Judgment ,
there was too much forolgn matter in
the car of coal. A fovr foot away is
the plaoo where the cars of coal are
weighed. After the seyon arbitrators
had watehod the weighing of coal for
a while , Mr. Clark inquired how many
pounds constituted a ton at this col-
Hory. Superintendent Brydon thought
it was about 2,800 pounds , but District
President Nlcholls said it was a little
ever 3,100 pounds. The two began to
discuss this , each maintaining ho was
right. Mr. Nlcholls said that granting
that 2,800 was correct , these figures
are too high. Ho said when the com
panies fixed 2,800 pounds to constitute
a ton so as to get out of It 2,000 pounds
of pure coal , the operators did not
eell pea coal In the market. Now they
have a market for pea coal and about
three other sizes below . ! $ . and the
minor's ton of 2,800 pounds has not
been decreased. Judge Gray was an
interested listener to the discussion.
Ho stood by with his hands deep In
his overcoat pockets and never ut
tered a word. It was qulto evident
that both Mr. Nlcholls and Mr. Bry-
den tried to make a good Impression
with the commissioner , but what ho
thought ho did not even express in his
Troops Return Home.
Wllkosbarre , Pa. , Oat. 31. The
Fourth and Eighth regiments , which
have been stationed In the Wyoming
valley for some tlmo past , broke camp
yesterday and returned to their homes.
The entire coal region is now peace
ful. The only place where trouble is
looked for Is In the Lehlgh region ,
where the Individual operators and
the miners have failed to come to an
agreement. Some of the troops maybe
bo kept In that section until the min
ers return to work. Yesterday was a
busy day at the mines and the output
of coal was heavy.
Mollneux Casa to Proceed.
New York , Oct. 31. Counsel for the
defense In the Mollneux case moved
that the court direct the jury to ac
quit the defendant on the ground that
tbo evidence was insufficient. Justice
Lambert donlod the motion.
Interests Worth $100,000,000
Said to Plan Merger.
After the Joining of Hands the Same
Firms Will Consolidate Yards To
tal Capitalization Will Run Close
to $600,000,000.
Chicago , Oct. 31. The Reoord-Her-
ald says : Two big ooneoMdatlons are
planned by beef Interest * . The pack
ers will oombino first and then effect a
merger of all the stock yards In the
country. With the exception of the
Chicago stock yards , which are con
trolled In Boston , all the properties In
volved are owned and controlled by
the owners of the principal beef pack
ing interests. The different yards
that will probably bo Included In the
deal asldo from the Chicago yards are
these ut Kansas City , East St. Louis ,
St. Joseph , Fort Worth , South Omaha
and Sioux City.
The plan for consolidating the vari
ous stock yards has not progressed as
yet to a point where the amount of
stock required has been more than
discussed. It would undoubtedly rim
well to $100,000.000 , exclusive of the
amount required for the packing com
panies' combination , which Is said to
bo $500.000.000.
Published Article Saying General Bell
Tried to Steal Public Money.
Manila , Oct. 31. Libel proceedings

itor and the proprietors of Libertas , a

and Laguna , Luzon , and of the island
of Mlndoro. This plan was put Into

ties. It consisted of selling rico and
