WASHINGTON. Sept. 10. The president
today took Initiative atepa to ascertain
what, if anything, could b dona by federal
authority to settle tfaa coal strike. Tha
result waa rather general expression of
eplnloa by tha advlsore of the preildent
who were psrtles to today'a conference to
'; the effect that the federal lawa and con
( gtitutlon da not offer mesne of federal
p, Interference to end the atrlke, but another
conference will be held tomorrow and the
1 preeldent will do all he properly and le
' gaily can to bring about a settlement.
At the temporary White House a confer
ence waa held wtth three cabinet officers,
Attorney' General Knox, Secretary Moody
' and Postmaster General Payne. Governor
Crane of Massachusetts also waa present.
These gentlemen met. with President
' Roosevelt first, and after the subject had
; been considered for some time they ad
' Journed to another room and conferred to
gether for an hour. They all returned
; later In tho day and held another confer
ence with the president and tha atrlke
situation was discussed further.
Roosevelt Mark Concerned.
' President Roosevelt la deeply concerned
ever the situation. Tho approach of win
ter with a eoal famine Imminent, and the
dlstreaa and suffering that must ensue un
less coal becomes available, presents a
'situation which, ha thinks, should receive
tho attention of tha administration if there
la anything that can be done by the gov
ernment. Many appeals have beeen made
to him and many sujgestlons have been
; received by him, and. it was with a view
to ascertaining what power tha federal au
thority could evoke that caused the con-
'terrace to ba held.
- During tha conference ovary phaae of the.
situation waa dtaouased. The general opin
ion of the advlaora of tha president was
I that the situation did not present a caao
I In which ' there could ba federal lnterfer
'ence by any warrant of law., Thero haa
i bean no Interference with federal author
ity In the. mining region, either by atop
ipage o' tba malls or resistance of tha
'United Statea court process. It was point
ed out that'thTe was no 6ocas1on for the
Viies ot federal troopa, as Governor Stone
at Pennsylvania had not called on tha gov
ernment for assistance nor had he even
exhausted the resources of the state by
calling out tho full strength of tha atata
. militia.
Several Plans Considered.
Tha questions of tha right1 to seek ap
pointment of a receiver for the mines in
order that they might be operated waa dis
cussed, but neither In tba constitution nor
In any known law could any legal warrant
. bo found for such action. The tenor of the
whole discussion was to ths effect that
there waa a lack of power In the federal
administration to take action at present,
though the seriousness ot tho coal famine
1 bow and the much greater evils to follow
were considered at length and with a wish
to discover aoma method ot end'ng tha In
dustrial deadlock.
Governor Crana'a . presence naturally
brought Into prominence the proceedings
begun in tha Massachusetts courts to se
cure the appointment of receivers for the
coal properties, "but the opinion waa ex
pressed that tba situation could not ba met
successfully by thla method. '
During the day advlcea were received
that the atrlke might be settled by the op
erators and minora themselves, and it waa
auggestcd that tasty Interference of any
kind by the federal government might pre
vent tha consummation ofl the plana tor a
Strike aettlemsnt It any auch are maturing.
Realising the futility of efforts to end the
atrlke. It was stated that the president was
anxious that the end of the strike should
be brought about at the earliest possible
moment, and If the attorney general or
other member ot tba cabinet could devise
. a method by wblch the president could pro
" caed, ha would not hesitate to adopt It un
less meanwhile assurance of a aettlement
Were forthcoming.
Root Returns Report.
The conference will be resumed tomor
row, at which time Secretary Root will be
present. It Is understood that the visit ot
Secretary Root to New York was tor the
purpose of consulting prominent business
men on the subject. The secretary left for
New York Monday after a short conference
at tha White House. It haa been Intimated
that the president may send for the man
agers of the coal properties, but this will
not ba done until after the conference to
morrow, and perhaps not then.
Some confidence is expressed in the re
port which Secretary Root may bring from
New York, although It could not be learned
what communication, if any. had been re
ceived hers from the secretary while In
' New York. Ko reached Washington about
10 p. ta.. but denied himself to all news
paper men. No official report ot today's
conference waa given out, but It (a thought
that a statement will follow the confer
ence tomorrow. As beretofors stated, tb
main fact remained apparent that the presi
dent will make every effort that ha caa
exert, properly aud lawfully, ta atop tha
Strike and avert a fuel famine.

PARIS, Sept. 30. The autopsy on the
remains of M. Zola has resulted In an of
ficial declaration that he died from asphyxi
ation from carbonic gas fumes.
A crowd of people drawn there by curi
osity haa remained lp" front of Zola'a
house since morning, "Ms tragic death

The post-mortem examination of Zola'a
remains this morning resulted In tha addi

waa due to asphyxiation caused by car
bonic oxide fumes, in showing that the
novelist fell into a densely saturated at

Issued an appeal for subscriptions to erect
a monument to the dead novelist.
Among those who algned the register at
Zola'a house or sent condolences were Pre
mier Combes, a majority of the cabinet
ministers, M. Waldeck-Rousseau, Maltre
Labor, Colonel Plcquart and M. Millerand.
Jules Claretie haa written for the Temps
an eulogistic appreciation of Zola'a literary
labors in which he says the name of the
dead novelist "will resound in the history
of French letters; his name and werk will
live for centuries," and concludes with re
calling how the votea for Zola at tha elec

until the last time there waa only one re

tion, which la hearing arguments in the

Scares Hill Inta "tat at
SARATOGA, N. T., Sept. 80. At 8:30 to
night it was announced the following can
didates had been agreed upon:
''or Governor Bird S. Coler of Kings.
rbr Lieutenant Governor Charles 8. Bul
r of Oswego.
For Attorney General John Cunneen of
For Comptroller C. M. Preston of Ulster.
For Secretary of State Frsnk H. Mott of
For Engineer Richard W. Herman of
For Treasurer D. J. Vauken of Ontario.
For Judge. Court of Appeals John C.
Grsy ot New York.
This Is the ticket promulgated tonight
from the headquarters of Senator Hill. It
was ths result of a conference ot many of
the atate leaders. In which Senator Hill and
Hugh McLaughlin took a leading part. The
announcement of this tentative ticket was
received quietly by the throngs. In the ho
tel corridors, and later rumors were circu
lated that when it came before the conven
tion it might not stand.
The Kings county delegates, led by Sen
ator McCarren, were talking of prospective
changes. Despite of this the Hill people
went on making arrangements for the nom
ination of the ticket. In all of thla prelim
inary work Tammany took no part, and. in
fact, after the first conference Kings county
absented itself.
What Hill flays.
Senator Hill did not deny that the alate
given out by those In his room was abso
lutely the one which the convention would
nominate. One of the rumors was that
Kings county was preparing to bolt and
that several of the delegates would refuse
to abide by the Coler system, or vote in
the unit system. Senator McCarren, in
answering this, said: "It la useless to try
to disguise the fact that several member
of our delegations are not heartily In favor
of Mr. Coler. We still believe that Judge
Parker would accept the nomination it
confronted with, the fact that the conven
tion wanted him by acclamation. Still, I
don't think we will break the unit rule."
Important news of the night from semi
official ojrc, but lscVing snthorlsatlon,
was that the committee on platform bad
decided to declare for a 1,000-ton barge
canal, and that the committee on creden
tials, to avoid further trouble, would seat
the delegation headed by William 8. Dev
ery. A committee on resolutions was appointed
this morning, consisting of fifty members,
each representing a senatorial district.
Chairman George Raines and the committee
met in the afternoon. Two proposed planks
of the platform caused somewhat of a
flurry. In ths committee, the liberal democ
racy, with a committee of five heade,d by
Robert "Baker "R spokesman idekjanflettr
that the democratic state convention stand
for a reaffirmation of the Kansas City plat
form as a whole."
The Chicago-Kansas City platform party
ot New York state, through Calvin J.
Keach, demanded the Incorporation of this:
The democratic party of the Empire state
recognizes the national platform of 1900 as
the organlo law of the party untlt it can be
changed by another national convention and
regrets that it waa not ratified by the people
at the polls."
Baker' Bnaaieatlon.
Mr. Baker offered these suggestions for
the platform: "That every article produced
by a trust or combination be at once de
prived of all tariff protection; election by
the people of the federal Judges and United
States senators, pending which the state
convention should nominate candidates for
the United States senate; governmental ac
quirement and operation of railroads and
coal mines; entire home rule over local
affairs to municipalities, Including local
option; that municipalities be empowered
to acquire, construct and operate all pub
lic service utilities, pending which all new
modified and extended franchises are only
to become operative when ratified by pop
ular vote, the initiative and referendum;
constitutional amendment wo secure the pre
vailing fate of wages on all public worka,
exclusion from municipal debt limit of all
obligations Issued for revenue producing
properties; adequate provision to widen and
deepen the state canals; complete safe
guards for freedom of speech and against
government by Injunction, bp enaction of
an antl-lnjunctlon law; forfeiture of office
by public officials accepting free passes
and finally an explicit pledge that If elected
its candidates will strike to uproot sll forma
of special privilege.
In presenting these suggestions Mr. Baker
said: "Do not think for a moment that any
vacillating policy on these questions . will
gain for you our vote. Don't dream for
moment that you are helping your cause
with us by shouting harmony and putting on
your platform men who ones repudiated
real democracy. Do you want to throw out
friends and disrupt the party? So sura as
you do, defeat awaits you."
Senator Grady Well, Mr. Baker, moat of
tha things you suggest are of national ira
portance and It will not be policy to cumber
our platform with them. So far as your
anxiety for labor Is 'concerned, let ma tell
you that the democratic vote In the legis
lature haa been uniformly In favor ot the
laboring man.
Asa Bird Files Ip as Dove of Peace,
Mr. Baker I am not speaking for Just the
labor vote. I am speaking for a great in
dignant public, who demand relief and who
will defeat your party It '
Asa Bird Gardiner rose at this point and
asked (hat the debate be limited. Chairman
Gainer agreed and Mr. Baker waa forced to
When Calvin J. Keach appeared with his
endorsement plank he called upon tha party
to take aa honorable open stand for Its last
national platform. ' , ' .
Senator Grady (interrupting) It is not
the thing for a party ia the state to take
up national questions or go Into the en
dorse ment ot national platforms in aa "off
year. This party baa never endorsed a
national platform to my knowledge but once
and that waa tn 1888.
Mr. Keach That la not any reason. You
don't want to be branded cowards, do you?
And It you Ignore the last platform you
will be so branded. The republican party
has had the manliness to endorse their
tariff. Do you want to be less faithful to
your issues?
At this point Mr. Keach was cut off. A
delegation from the Brooklyn Democratic
club presented some planks which they da
sired Incorporated in the platform, at teaat

Rumor of Strike Settlement KlectrlBe
Exehance About the Tlme'thet
Shaw Gives Money Market
a Helping Hand.
NEW YORK, 8ept. 80. The stock market,
which closed yesterday utterly demoralized
aa a result ot stringent monetary condi
tions and other unfavorable consequences,
made a sensational recovery today. The
chief cause for the complete reversal was
the action of Secretary Shaw In removing
the restraint on bank reserves, and per
sistent reports from varloua quartera thst
the coal strike had at last resched tbe
point where negotiations for settlement
were under way. For this last rumor
there appeared little or no foundation, ac
cording to tbe Individual and collective
atatements of the lesdlng operators made
after tbe regular weekly meeting.
Another Influence for better prices was
the decline in call money rates, though
during tbe morning loans were made as
high as 19 per cent. A large part of the
day'a loana was made at around 10 per
cent, and the rate at the close went down
to 2, but this was really nominal, no money
being placed at that figure.
Opening prlcea were better all the way
from a fraction to five points. Wide op
erations in which blocks ot 2,000, 3,000 and
6,000 shares changed bands were numerous.
The greatest galna were in the standard
railway shares, notably St. Paul. Louisville
Nashville, which bore the brunt of the
previous day's pounding, Missouri Pacific,
Union Pacific, the coalera and a number
of specialties.
Strennoa Hour on the Floor.
On the floor of the stock exchange tha
greatest excitement and activity prevailed
urlng the first hours. Brokers on the
short time were covering with all possible
speed, and the bull faction waa In absolute
control, The list manifested a vacillat
ing- tendency soon after the first bulge.
nd many ot the active stocks whose Initial
gains had been largest receded from one
to three points
The opening rate for call money waa 12
per cent, but thla soon advanced to 18, cre
ating general confusion among those com
mitted to higher prices. The most sensa
tional operations developed In the after
noon on newa from Washington that the
president and hla cabinet had taken steps
to terminate the coal strike. Iii suit of
the absence of any confirmation, the mar
ket seized upon this announcement and,
with the coal stocks In the lead, the entire
list shot upward. The market developed
a buoyant tone In the last hour, though
operations were confined largely to the
coalera, which were heavily traded In and
at practically the best prlcea of the day.
The day'a operations were in excesa of
$1,200,000 aharea.
Secretary Shaw's visit to the street and
his talks with the leading banking Interests
helped In no email way to restore con
fidence. Local banka loaned moderately.
. Shaw Feel Pleased.
Secretary Shaw was an early visitor at
the aubtreasury today. Mr. Shaw came to
the financial department for the purposo
of discussing the financial situation with
the bankers. His calls included Georae
Banckers and Vice President Vanderllp of
the National City bank. The aecretary ex
pects to remain down town tbe greater part
of the day. He expressed himself aa being
much gratified at the Improvement shown
by the monetary outlook.
In an Interview, the secretary aald that
all savings bank securities sccepted by tbe
treasury department in place of government
bonds would be of the highest class panic
proof and as good in London as in New
The secretary said he' had been assured
that fully $40,000,000 cash will be released
today as a result ot his action. Among the
secretary's other callers were W. Naah,
president of the Corn Exchange bank, and
chairmen of ths clearing bouse committee;
Joseph Hendrix, president of the National
Bank of Commerce; W. H. Perkins, presi
dent of the Bank of America, and Jamea I.
Blair. The representatives of two leading
bond houses conferred with the secretary,
who will leave for Washington tonight.
Aetlon of Shaw Commended.
Chairman Elbert H. Gary of the United
States Steel corporation, and James Still
man of the National City bank, called in
the early afternoon.
"I simply called to congratulate the
secretary," said Mr. Gary. "In my opinion
he has shown good Judgment and I firmly
iwiieve nis pian win go a great waye to
ward easing the situation."
Mr. Stillman remained with Secretary
bnaw lor aome time. Upon taking leave
he said: "I think tha aecretary'a act Is
very commendable.
Mr. Stillman declined to say whether he
thought the financial situation would ahow
more than temporary Improvement.

Peace reigns In the kingdom of Ak-Bar-
Ben. Joy abound where sorrow was, and
all the realm Is aglow with cheer and glad
ness because the stubborn will ot J. Plu-
vlus at last oas been conquered (at least
the weather man says ao), and condlttona
are propitious for a grand crisis today In
the annual festivities thus far marred by
rail and clouds. Yesterday when Old Sol
peeped h's laughing red fsoe above the
eastern horiion a thrill ot delight ahol
through the heart of every faithful aubject
of the great king every one who waa not
asleep at that hour and throughout the
day brightness dwelt not only In the skies
but In the hearts of the people. It looked.
Indeed, aa If the weather would bs entirely
favorable for the grand daylight parade
today one of tho three essential featurea
ot tbe week. -
Best of All Sneh Parades.
Every effort baa been expended to make
today's parade tbe greatest ot all similar
daylight exhibitions. It la Indeed question
able if a single endeavor win prove to have
been exerted in vain. If ao, then who will
care If It did rain and storm on other days?
Thursday and Thursday night will follow
ao closely upon tha beela of today that it'a
two to one the grand electrical pageant,
the crucial function of tha week, will be
pulled oft without a hitch. And be thla
true the carnival will have atarted Into
history ss a most successful one, for what
could mar the brilliance ot tbe great ball
Friday night under the broad canopy of
the klng'a very palace T
Thla parade today will surpaaa In grand
eur and scope any daylight exhibition
heretofore given under' tho auspices of
the Knights of Ak-8sr-Ben. The first
division will ba composed of tho military
companies of Omaha, South Omaha and
Council Bluffs, and the othere will be
made up of the fraternal societies, all' of
which will make unique displays and
many of which will have expensive floats
in line. There will be eight or ten banda,
enough to keep music in the air every
moment that the parade la. moving. The
line of march will bo on South Sixteenth
from Nicholas to Leavenworth, counter
march on Sixteenth to Douglas, on Douglas
to Tenth, on Tenth to Farnam, on Farnam
to Nineteenth, on Nineteenth to Harney,
on Harney to Fifteenth, on Fifteenth to
Capitol avenue.
Vehicles Must Keep Off.
While the parades aro moving thla aft
ernoon and Thursday evening no vehlclea
will be permitted to travel on the lino of
march or to atand on the atreeta while tho
paradea are passing. Tbla was decided upon
by Chief of Polloe Donahue yesterday,
bis object being to give the entire apaoa In
tbe streets not occupied by tho paradea to
the people.
"At every parade," aald the chief, "thero
are aome who drive their vehlcleo beside
the curbstone and atand while tha parade
ia paaslag. This obstructs tho view- of
many and greatly hinder the police In
keeping the crowda out ot tha way. Be
side, it la dangeroua and people aro likely
to be Injured by runaway horses. Should
a horse become frightened at a passing
float and go to kicking or running eomeono
would be sure to be hurt. This I shall pre
vent by keeping the atreeta along the Una
of march entirely free of vehlclea and
Banda Rosea Conserve.
