MITCHELL'S CONCESSIONS SCOFFED AT
naaestlon that Matters Be Left to
Arbitrators Xamed by President
Roosevelt la Declined
WASHINGTON. Oct, .-The great coal
conference between the president and rep
resentative of the operators and the mln-
' an came to an end at the temporary White
Ilea at 4:55 o'clock this afternoon with
' failure to reach an agreement.
Apparently the rock upon which the con
ference spilt was recognition of the miners'
onion. Tha president urged the contending
parties to cease strife In the Interests of
tha public, welfare; the miners through the
president of their union expressed a wtll-
.ingness to submit differences to arbitration
of a tribunal to be named by President
Roosevelt and to enter Into an agreement
to abide by terms fixed by the arbitration
for a period of from one to five years, and
the employers, through the presidents of
tha railroad and coal companies and a
leading Independent mine operator,
squarely refused arbitration, denounced the
miners' labor organization as a lawless and
anarchistic body with which they could
and would have no dealings, demanded fed
eral troops to Insure complete protection
to workers and their families in the min
ing region and court proceedings against
the miners' union, and offered. If the men
returned to work, to submit grievances at
Individual collieries to the decision of the
Judges of the court of common pleas for
tha district of Pennsylvania in which the
colliery was located. There the matter
closed. Tonight both the miners and the
operators are still in the city, but tomor
row they return to their several localities,
each saying at a late hour that the Strug
Si if!!! continue.
Will Ooatlaa' strike.
Tha immediate parties to the strike say
they will continue as heretofore. What
, course the administration will take next
1 no one is prepared to say. One of the
operator, aa hs left the White House with
closely set Jaw, waa asked regarding this
"If any one knows what tha president
( will do next, that is mors than I know."
Fourteen men, including tha president,
't Vera In tha second story front room at the
temporary White Housa during the mo
mestous conference. President Mitchell
and three of his district leaders repre
sented the-Tniotv.nr fif Tanrosd watt
and one Independent mine operator the em

General Knox, Commissioner of Labor
' Wright, and Secretary Cortelyou. What
took place at tha meeting la set out In
ample statements made by each side and
given out to ths press by themselves and
also officially at tha White House. During
tha conference the president listened to
both sides with tha greatest eagerness.
Today's conference began a few minutes
after 11 o'clock. President Mitchell and
his three dlstrlot presidents of the Miners'
union were the first to put In an appear
ance at ths temporary White House. Th
operators reached the temporary White
House at one mlnuts past 11. Each party
was escorted to separate rooms on tha first
floor, and soon after they were ushered
Upstairs. In ths front room on ths second

STATIST'S PRAISE FOR SHAW

Coarse In Overriding- Tresasry
LONDON. Oct. 4. The Statist this morn
ing, says that the feeling on the Btock ex
change, where the week began in gloom,
was very rapidly changed by the bold and
statesmanlike action of Secretary of the
Tfeasury Shaw, who has shown a readiness
to assume responsibility and face a grave
emergency which ought to, earn him a
high reputation among his countrymen.
The Statist credits Mr. 8haw with aavlng

The paper attributes the strlb
Wall street to unwise banking legist
and an antiquated treasury system, whicu
withholds vast sums ,of money from the
public in times of exceptional demand.
The Times says the demand for bar gold
on American account remains as keen as
ever, despite the rise in the Bank of Eng
land's discount, ths firmness of sterling
exchange and Secretary of the Treasury
Shaw's "relief measures,"
The Economist, commending th action
of the governors of the Bank of England
in raising the bank rate of discount to t
per cent, says it is enly surprised that
tbts etep was delayed as long as it was,
but the diminution of the reserve by
2,700,000 left no alternative. The paper
attributes the shortage of money largely
to the gold intercepted by New York. It
considers the action of the United States
treasury as palliative only and questions
the legality of Secretary Shaw's action In
reducing the bank reserve.
BERLIN. Oct. 3. The Relchbank state
ment published today, having shown the
existence of phenomenal pressure, the bank
has called a special meeting for tomorrow
to raise the discount rate to 4 per cent,
which Is considered certain. The bank's
status shows 106,000,000 marks decrease In
th note reserve, against 93,750 marks for
last year. The discounts are greater than
ever before, except on Beptember 30, 1899.

CONSTANTINOPLE, Oct. 3. Th Insur
rectionary movement in Macedonia does not
appear to have spread to any serious ex

that the Turkish measures for its suppres
sion may exasperate the villagers and cause
neutrals to Join the revolutionists.
Th Macedonian committee's efforts to
support the plans of its president. General
Tsonlcheff, for a general revolt are handi
capped by the hostility of the adherents of
Sara toff, the former president,' who refuses
all assistance to the new leader.
According to news from Bulgarian sources
upward of 500 Bulgarians were recently im
prisoned In the Monastlr district.
Numerous arrests of Albanians were mads

The Standard says: "President Roose

of bw far ought the executive of state to
Interfere In labor conflicts is a point which,

them to practice."
Patriotism Hot Eaonarh.
The Dally Chronicle considers that
praiseworthy appeals to patriotism and

that the conciliator must go to the heart
of the matter and dlscues the points la

in the presence of both parties.
The Times expresses the hope that Presi

8AN FRANCISCO. Oct 3. At a meeting
of tha trustees of Leland Stanford, Jr., uni
versity today, Mrs. Jan Stanford read an
address to th board, aettlng forth her
directions In the management of the uni
versity. The addreaa was significant, for
tb reason that it bore on the recent
troubles at Stanford resulting in the res
ignation of certain professors after the de
livery of opinions which the university au
thorities thought In conflict with the in
terests of th university. Today'a wss the
first public reference of Mrs. Stanford to
the matter. She said In part:
"During my administration th president
of th university shall contlnu to have
th exclusive control over th appoint
ment and dismissal of professor and teach
ers, aa he has had heretofore. Tha uni
versity must be forever maintained upon
a strictly nonpartisan and noneectarlan
basis. It must never become an Instru
ment in th hands of any political party
or religious sect or organisation.
"I desirs that the university shall for
ever be kept out of politics, and that no
professor shall electioneer among or aeek
to dominate other professors or the stu
dents for the success of any nolttea party
or candidate, in any political contest. I
hope that every voter, whether professor
or student, will always thoroughly. Inform
himself upon every principle involved and
as to the merits of every candidate seeking
his suffrage, and then vots according to
his own best Judgment and conscience,
irrespective of any importunity of other.
And in order to freely do thla he should
not bo subjected to any Importunity, since
It is possible that eases might arise where
a mere suggestion might be understood to
be a covert demand."
Mrs. Stanford announced that, pursuant
to her power as tha surviving founder of
ths university, she had selected Whltelaw
Reld of New York and Georga E. Crothers
of San Francisco aa trustee to fill va
cancies in the board.
Mrs. Stanford ale announced th letting
of contracts for a gymnasium to cost about
$500,000 and th approval of jlans for a
great library to accommodate over 1,000,000
volumes and containing accommodations
for twenty-four department libraries. There

STORY IS DISCREDITED IN THIS CITY
Man Closely Connected with th Live
Stock Interests Bays that Plans
aa Announced Are
KANSAS CITY. Oct. 1. C. F. Mono
president of the Kansas City and Denver
stock yards companies, speaking of the
Denver story to the effect that the Na-
tlonal Live Stock association, western
railways and Individual stockmen would
fight the proposed stock yards mera-er.
I have recently been called on by repre
sentatives of some of the principal live
stock associations of the southwest as to
the attitude which the Kansas City Stock
Yards company would take toward the es
tablishment of a large packing plant' at
this nlace to be owner! hv niiUmAn .1 w
Springer, the president of the National TJve
Bioca association, said that he thought
there would be no difficulty in raising a
capital of 110,000,000 or 15,OOO.ono for this
purpose. While 1 sm not authorized n
epeak for the company at this time, it Is my
juagmeni it sucn a company should he
organised the stock yards would be glad
to meet It with the same liberality that It
has shown to other companies In the past.
Locslly among those who are cromlnent
in the live stock market recent announce
ments of a proposed combination of stock
raisers and railway companies to fight the
prospective merger of the packing com
panies are not received with much show of
credence. Telegraphic dispatches of the
laat two days from Denver and Kansas
City state that a company of stockmen,
with the sympathy and assistance of the
largest western railroads. Is being formed
with n capital of from $10,000,000 to $15.-
000,000 for th purpose of fighting the
merger of the packing houses. President
John . W. Springer of the National Live
Stock association Is quoted as the author
ity for the declaration of th intentions of
th new organization and C. F. Morse,
president of the Kansas City and Denver
Stock Yard companies, is said to have pro
claimed his sympathy with the project and
to have assured his promoters that his
yards will stand by the stockmen and 1KJ
necessary build an independent plant for
them at Kansas City.
Those who are most prominently engaged
in the handling of live stock at thts point
declare the plana a announced to be lack
ing In the elements of probability or au
thenticity. One of these gentlemen, in re
viewing th question last evening, said:
"In the first place, I have no doubt that
if a new company were formed with a cap
ital of $10,000,000 or $15,000,000 President
Mors would provide accommodations for
it at Kansas City even if, as it is stated,
he should have to purchase additional land
to make rooom tor the new company. But
It does not look reasonable to me that any
association of sensible business men should
deliberately start out with any such capi
tal as that to fight such a gigantic power
aa thst trust will be If it 1ft formed. That
would be simply ridiculous. Mind, I do
not say that the stockmen, oould not get
togethWv-mHcO. more, capita -than tea or
fifteen millions If they should set about it;
but even if they wer . determined upon
the court stated It seems to me that It
is hardly probable tbey would begin their
operations so openly before the merger is
formed. Then, too, the National Live
Stock association, although originally In
tended to embrace all classes of those who
raise live stock, has com to be dominated
by the sheep men and cannot properly be
called a representative association of cat
tle growers. My Impression would be that
the reports, as w have them, are largely
inflated with what is termed hot air.' "
