LONDON. Jan. 19. With every show of

eminent found tha prisoner guilty , was ob

German military attache , Von Kuncko :
"Nlno or ten mouths bcforo the arrest of

from his post. The explanation of his re

hastened to Inform the German government
of his mishap , hence his recall ,
"Curiously enough , the woman refused

Henry Gladstone , daughtcr-ln-law 1o the
"Grand Old Man , " at Whitehall court today.
"Mr. Gladstone Is again1 suffering from acute

fact that any Illness In ono so old Is In a
measure serious , there Is no cause for anx
iety. Wo had a letter from Cannes thlo
morning , but nothing Is said which offers
any justification for the disquieting reports
circulated today. Wo chould have had a tcl.

cerely , being moro surprised than disquieted
by the alarming story of Mr. Gladstone's crlt.

pers. .Mr. ArmlsteJ , Gladstone's closest
friend , said : "I should have Inetant news"
from Herbert Gladstone , who Is staying at
Cannes , It there were any foundation for
the current statements. I don't believe
them. Mr. Gladstone Is very old , but all his
organs are healthier than those of many
healthy men half his age. His neuralgia has
been very troublesome , but ho will shake
It off. "
Mr. Gladstone steadily refuses to seek

He believes It to bo his duty to suffer. 4i

' Can Be the Split. ,
CHICAGO , Jan. 19. Two brief eesslons
wcro held by the Interstate bituminous coal
operators and miners tojay , and an ad
journment was taken until tomorrow , pend
ing the scale committee's report.
Prom n public point of view everything
In and about the convention appeared calm ,
but In the secrecy of the scale committee
chamber the old war between operators of
the Ohio and Pennsylvania fields was
fiercely raging. Early In Iho session of the
committee the question of hours of labor
was thoroughly gene over. Ilepresentatlvcs
o : Iho workmen favored an eight hour day ,
but their principal contcnllon was for ii
uniform day In place of the varying hours
now established In the different states. The
operators wcro willing to mcot ihem hait
way , and It Is undcrslood a uniform work
ing day of nlno hours will be recommended
to the convention.
The knotty problem of state differentials
was then taken up. This brought Ohio
nnd Pennsylvania operators logctber with a
crah. In order to allow them full swing
Iho regular committee 'took ' a recess until' '
evening. The Ohio and Pennsylvania oper-
lors then went Into session by themselves.
The issue ibetween the two states Is oE
years' standing. Ohio operators have hith
erto succeeded In securing a rate of G lev
10 ccnls per Ion below Ibo Pennsylvania
scale , while It Is claimed by the Pennsyl
vania people thai Ohio operators obtain 23
to 30 cents moro per ton for their output.
The fight 'to remove this difference ou one
side , und to retain It on the other , Is there
fore a bitter one.
It Is probable that the scale committee
will bo unable to agree on all matters be
fore them , nnd will make Ihelr troubles
known to the full convention , , asking for
The session began with a full at
tendance , but no report was presented by
the scale commltlee and they were granted
'further time. Chairman , Sweet , of the com
mittee Informed the convention that nothing
of a definite nature had trzcaplrcd In the
committee and thst ooco of the/ questions
discussed bad been pul to a vote.
Chairman Dalzell of the Illinois operators
then presented a motion that the Illinois
miners bo permitted to name a committee
of twenly-ono lo meel Ihe operalors and
agco upon dlfTerenllals In 'the state. Tha
operators , he eald , had agreed upon a baals
of differentials and in order to facilitate ac
tion in the convention ho propsced to have
the locals all ready for the convention.
Differentials seem to be a signal for dis
cord whenever mentioned and no sooner had
Mr , Dalzell's motion been seconded than
storm of opposition broke loose 'from I
dlana , Ohio and Pecnsylvanb. President
Itatcbford supporled the Illinois plan , saying
It would facllllate the working of the conveu-
tloa and could do no harm. A motion lo ta
ble Mr. Dalzell's plan wao pul and declared
lost under Ihe rules , allhough It received a
vole of 21 against 12. Chairman Holcomb
staled that ft the Illinois representatives
wished , to meet it was clearly without the
pale of the convention and that the agree ?
ment would necessarily need the approval of
the convention. Mr. Dalzell thereupon with
drew his motion , having , as ho said , secured
tbo practical consent of the conventloa for
a meeting of Ibo miners and operators In this
No other business being prcaenled Ihe con-
vcallon took a recess awaiting the scale com
mltlee. A report from them , however , Is not
The afternoon session was brief. Owing
to Ibo fact Ibal no report was yet available
from the scale committee an adjournment
was taken until tomorrow morning.
EIGHT HOUR QUESTION.
Work on the secret conference of the scale
committee Is proceeding slowly. Today's
debate hinged principally on the eight-hour
question. The miners' delegates did not Insist
sist on an eight-hour day , but sought to
bring about a plan of uniformity In the mat
ter of hours throughout the soft coal -field.
While the operators In some states would
prefer that tbo ten-hour system in Penn
sylvania and Illinois remain 'in force , they ,
as a whole , were willing lo agree upon a
compromise of nlno hours labor. This much
gained establishes a uniformity of labor and
brings the committee face , to face with the
difficult problem cf differentials. The fight
wh'.ch ' has been .waged between Ohio and
Pnnnsylvanla for years was again before the
committee. To facilitate action the opera
tors from those two states withdrew from
the committee room lo Iry lo patch up I4i6lr
differences by themselves. No vote on any
question having been taken , the standing of
the committee was a matter ot speculation ,
bul It was considered beyond doubt that the
uniform system of nvino run will bo adopted.
The operators and miners of the Illinois
district appointed1 committees to arrange a
scale of differentials for the state which will
be presented to the convention for Us ap
proval. This matter will probably arouse
considerable opposition on the part of the
Indiana people whoso differentials depend *
to a largo extent upon those obtatnlngJJu

by Mrs. Cowln and Miss Cowln , arrived In
Ibo city last night from Now York , 'Mrs.
Cowln and daughter having Just returned
from a protracted stay la EjiglSWTand on
the continent. General Cowln , speaking of
the reorganization of the Union Pacific and
what It has accomplished , said : "It Is dclng
better for Itself and' ' serving the Intcrcsls of
the 'people ' better. The reorganization was
a great thng : for the property and Its
patrons , and In Omaha we have already felt
the beneficlent results of the change In ad
ministration. The new president Is a west
ern man , thoroughly fitted for the place , and
other things being equal IL Is better always
to have a western man at the head of west
ern railways. The state Is prosperous and
our people are full of hope and confidence ) In
the future. I do not believe that there la any
great deslro on the part of the west to go to
war over Cuba , Hawaii or anything else
right now. We are living In a peaceful ago
and the sentiment of the country Is against
war , save as a last resort. As for the Omaha
exposition , it Is going to ccl.pse all similar
cnlerprises ever held In Ibis country , save
the one at Chicago , and the enthusiasm of
Nfbraskans for the project Is unlimited. "
