CHICAGO , Jan. IS. Two very brief ses
sions were held by the joint convention of
bituminous coal operators and mlncis today
The scale committee appointed yesterday
made but little progress and pending the
receipt of a report from them the conven
tion adjourned until tomorrow.
Progress In the bcalo committee was slow.
Hvcry phase of thu situation was thoroughly
discussed. President Ratchford of the Mine
Workers advocated , it is said , the weeding
out of unskilled labor. Tlio adoption of the
mine run system , it Is thought. Is a cer
tainty. 0\or this matter and the differ
entials allowed by the now scale to be
formed trouble may occur , The Ohio oer-
atom are putting up a strong fight Cor their
differentials nnd declare that they will pro
cure contracts with their employes to work
on the "lump" basis If their demands are
not acceded to
Yesterday's action In according the West
Virginia delegation a seat and voice , but no
vote In the convention , was reconsidered
today and the miners from that state were
unanimously accorded full privileges.
The following members ol the scale com-
ralttco wore announced : Indiana Oper
ators , , W. S. Boblo , W. H. Zimmerman , W.
W. Riaher , J. S. Tally. Mlneis , J. II. Mor
gan , B. A. Nevln , G. W. Knight , Samuel

The nominations reported < by the scale
committee vvero approved and the convention
took n recess until 2 o'clock , when a report
from the scale committee Is expected.
The scale committee was taken Into secret
conference Immediately after recccis was
taken. A. L > . Sweet of Illinois was elected
chairman and William Warner of Pennsyl
vania , secretary of the meeting. No ma
terial progress was anticipated by the com-
mlttecmc < n and nothing was accomplished
The general situation in tne coal trade was
discussed at length iby txxti miners and operators
Hon. II , L. Chapman of Ohio , who Is a
member of the committee for the operators ,
mid : "Tho situation Lt an extremely com
plicated o-no and will require thorough dis
cussion , which will bo probably continued
several days. Owing to the largo attend
ance < at the convention It was deemed In
expedient to enter upon < a discussion of the
wngo scale In open sesjlo'i. Such proceed
ing would precipitate endless discussion and
ho entirely fruitless. In the elected com
mittee 'both aides will bo free to oxprcsj
their opinions , and , I have no doubt , reach
a satlsfactoiy and amlcablo agreement , which
would be utterly Impossible In the open
convention. "
The committee adjourned until afternoon.
The afternoon session of the convention
was very brief. Chairman Holcomb an
nounced that the scale committee was unable
to report and that Its progress was extremely
slow. No other business being presented ,
the convention adjourned until 9 a. in. to
The afternoon session of the scale com
mittee developed the fart that the mlnoitirt
Bjstem would undoubtedly bo adopted by
the convention. The minors' delegates nro
a unit for the abolishment of the old screen
system Prominent Ohio operators , how evei ,
were not disposed to accept the mlno run
proposition , and the only discordant note in
[ ho bccret conference was the declaration
Dy a lioivy Ohio operator that liu would go
lomo nnd procure contracts with his mlnerq
on the "lump1" bails.
President Ratchford occupied a largo portion
tion of the session and calmly dlscueaed the
several points nt Issue , among them heln < {
a higher scale , mlno run , nn night-hour daj ,
and the betterment of the miners' condition
generally He , It Is understood , favored a
novemcnt to vveed out the unskilled liboror

piano , and the operators v.ould In their turn
ie bcnefltted CheckwelBhtng was discussed
by Patrick Uolan.

any of the questions discussed , and ad-

which perrrUslon was granted to erect si
temporary corrugated Iron building la the

which he had vetoed several previous resolu
llora of the > mine character. The veto was
overridden by a utanlmous vote.
Commur ( cations from Ocngrcsaman Mer

supply the bulldlcg , the government requires
that the city should pose as the ruspDMlblE

as would warrac-t the city attorney In noti

vero passed on third reading. In
catlng his approval of the ord nance passed
a week ago Mayor Moores said that the re
tailers objected to the ordinance because
they were net high enough and the peddlers
because they were Lno high. He therefore
concluded that the ordinance established a
fair medium between the contentions of the
opposing Interests.
An audience appreciably larger than those
of the preceding nights ot Mr. Whlteslde's
engagement saw "Richelieu" last evening at
Bojd's. The part of the crafty cardinal of
Bulwei's play la better suited to Mr. White-
side's ability than some others -which he
essays. The faults which mar his work in
iioro hoioic roles are less apparent hero ,
and although they cannot bo said to he en-
tliely absent they are probably reduced to
tho'r lowest terms. The tremendous scene
n the fifth act where the would-be abductors
ot Julio are threatened with the curse cf
Rome , was given with really thrilling effect ;
lor were the less strenuous passages of tbo
> lay In any wise slighted. Miss Wolstan was

Sturgeon the Do Mauprat.

When People Are Suffering From Rhemiiatisiii

Discovery , The Fame of Which is "World-Wide. "

More men , women and even little child
ren have bca suffering \vlth rheumatism
and neuralgia the prevent jcar than ever
before. Statistics from nil over the country
show this doctors reports prove It Possi
bly the unusual weather has haJ something
to do with It , but there li ono great reason
back of It all The great cause of rlictinnt's ' u
cad neuralgia , or even muscular cold U be-
cau j there Is uric acid In the blood This
uric ncld should bo thrown out ot the sys
tem , and can bo It the kldncvs are only In
a strong and healthy condition , but , being
weakened , these great organs are not able
to throw the urle acid from the Bvstcm
and so It gets Into the blood , poisons the
blood , eettles around the Joints. InlUmrs the
rnuoclcs and causes what vvo call rheuma
tism and neuralgia.
Is this not clear ? Can you not readily see
that there la cnly ono way to euro three
troubles , and tl-at 13 by keeping the kldnojs
In a strong and healthy condition ? It they
arc kept strong nnd well , and dilve the urld
ncld from the blood , there will bo no mare
rheumatism or neuralgia ,
In every quarter ot the globe , Including
India , Africa and Australia , It la acknotvl
edged tLat there Is but one discovery which
can or ever docs flsht the battle against
uric ncld , and drive It from the body. That
discovery U known universally throughout
the world as Warner's Safe Cure.
In writing upon this subject , Mr. Wllllim
Edward llosbon , surgeon of the Hoyal Navy
of Hnglaml , said :
"I conscientiously and emphatically state
tlat I have been nble to give more relief
and effect more cures by the ue ofVai ncr's

It would ocat them from ? 50 to $75 to make
connections wi.h tJio main sewer , while ! t
would cost abutting property owners com
paratively nothing. For this reason the corn-

bo made. This was done and the se-sslon of

Over a jear ago propel ty owners living on
Twenty-seventh street between C and F
streets petitioned for a change of grade. Tor
some reason no attention was paid to the
petition for several months" , when the mat
ter was brought up In the council and ap
praisers appointed. In duo course of time
the appraisers reported , that there would bo
no damages by reason of the proposed change
of grade and then the matter was again
shelved for a time.
A couple of weeks ago the old petition was
dug up and the city attorney was Instructed
to draft an ordinance providing for the
change of grade. When the document was
sprung at the meeting of the city fathers
Monday night the city attorney suggested
that as BO long a tlmo had elapsed slncu the
petition was tiled It would be much better to
have the property owners present another
petition , as some of the signers might have
changed thcilr minds.
It Is contended by the persons desiring
this change In grade that the first petition
was procured at considerable expense and
that It was au Imposition to nsk that the
whole matter bo gene over again.
