editor of the Gentlewoman the other day,
petulantly complaining that her name had
been omitted from the list published In his
paper o( the guesta In the royal enclosure

Highland games, although Lady Byron, who
vent with her, was mentioned. The letter
"This letter Is confidential, but an ex
planation la requested, as Miss Corelll was
' with Lady Somer and Lady Kennard."
The editor replied:
"When, In 1898, Miss Corelll was asked for
some Information about her plans, she an
swered expressing her contempt for those
nobs who seek newspaper notice In any re
lation of life. Hence the omission of her
name." He then granted her' desire for
publicity, with this comment: "I personally
cannot understand the pleasure of being
within elbow distance cf royalty to an In
dividual who habitually writes with such
disrespect of royal personages. No such
titled companionship as Miss Corelll men
tions was necessary to Induce the editor to

the queen mother has brought about a

Hollanders recall another photo of their

ehowing her atanding trustingly by hlj

period of the keenest anxiety In Holland.
It was a time when Prince Henry was al

when Emperor William was reported to
have sent a peremptory message to Prince

Queen Wllhelmlna lay dangerously 111 and
whence he had departed on a bunting trip,

The apparent neglect of Queen Wll
helmlna by her husband followed reports
which received universal circulation that
the conduct of Prince Henry had perhaps
Jeopardized the prospects of an immediate
heir to the throne.
Young Hollanders of noble birth and
closely attached to the queen's household
were said to have formed a circle of knight

rudeness of her husband. One of these
knights, so It was ssld. waa wounded by

Parkincon of Kansas City Is a singer who
Is bound to be heard of shortly.
She Is the pet pupil of Mine. Marchesl,
who says she has mere confidence In Miss
Parkinson than she ever had in any previous
scholar. Her voice la pronounced to bo
sweeter than Melba' and It is asserted that
she sings better.
Miss Parkinson hss signed an engage
ment with the Opera Comlque for three
years, and, despite her disagreeable experi
ence in Marseilles last November, she may
yet hope to attain success in France.
When she appeared as Sapho In Marseilles
the audience rose at her and refused to
listen, ssylng that they wanted no for
eigners. The uproar was so great that Miss
Parkinson had to retire. '
American singers do not get any show In
France. They come out with the highest
recommendations, sing -once or twice and
are heard of no more.
Miss Bessie Abbott made her debut at the
end of last year. The opera engaged her
for two years and ahe sang four or five
times In "Romeo and Juliet" and perhaps
three times In "81egfrled." Her debut
caused a great stir in the American colony
and her voice was so fine and she waa so
promising that Mr. Gallhard, the manager
of the opera, talked of mounting "Hamlet"
and "Don Juan" specially for her. But
Hamlet" waa not mounted and "Don Juan"
was played last Wednesday night without
Miss Abbott. Why? Simply because an
American rtnea not draw a French andlenea

WASHINGTON, Oct. 11. President Roose
velt la seeking every method by which
there may be federal action In settling the
coal strike. His cabinet advisers have
been requested to look carefully into the
laws which may have a bearing on the
subject, and see If thera Is any statute
under which he can proceed. So far noth
ing haa been found.
.There Is one ray of hope, but It I rather
falnt In view of the attitude of the coal
operators. This Is that some mutual ground
of arbitration may be found. The miners
are willing to consent to arbitration of all
questions. The operators admitted the
principle of arbitration1 to a limited extent
in offering to submit individual cases of
disputes between employers and employes
to the courts of common pleas In the dis
tricts where the disputes occur.
Seeka Middle Course.
What the president and his advisers are
trying to ascertain is whether a middle
ground of arbitration may hot be agreed
upon. This plan, even though it does not
now give much hope cf success, is the only
one In sight at present. Those who have
discussed tbo matter with the president
think that, as the situation grows more
acute, both parties in the interest of the
public welfare may be Induced to accept it
or something of a similar nature.
That the president is very much in earn

subject that continue at the White House.

The American Federation of Labor,
through Us executive today Issued an ad
dress to the public, appealing for financial
and moral aid for the striking miner and
denouncing the attitude of the owners, on
whom, the appeal says, must rest the re
sponslbl'.lty for the hardships resulting from
the coal famine.
The address has been under discussion in
Becret sessions of the council for several
days, and la aa follows:
The strike of the miners Is now In It
twenty-third week. That the strike oc
curred was entirely the fault of the presi
de nts of the coal companies; that the strike
haa continued to this da is entirely due to
the contempt which tnooe premnenis nnve
for the pet f our country and tho untold
sufferlnKS which all may endure.
No offer to settle the strike could be
fairer than that made by the miners' rep
rteentatlves at the conference with Presi
dent Koosevelt. The operator' haughty
arrogance, brutal, dominating spirit and
blasphemous assumption of divine wealth
proprietorship shocked the civilised world
and aroused the honest indignation of ail
loern of J.iatice and fair dealing.
What more could the miners do without
forfeiting the respect of thelr-'fellow men
than express their willingness to subject
all matter In dlxpute to a commission ap
pointed by President Roosevelt, and when
that was refused, to leave the entire con
troversy to Mr. J. P. Morgan, one of the
men largely interested with the operators?
There has never been a time before the
strike or since Its Inauguration when the
rr.'nera have not Deen entirely willing to
have the quentlons Involved investigated
and adjusted by any disinterested persons.
Them circumstances In connection will)

suffering which the people may have to

the stoppage of the wheels of industry and

with all the .lire consequences which may

The principles, the cause for which the
miners are bearing the greatest sacrifices
and burdens,, are as dear to the hearts of

LINCOLN, Oct. 11. (Special Telegram.)
For the third time In three year th Bur
lington passenger train. No. 41, on th
Billings line, was held up just west of her
at 2 o'clock this morning.
The engineer was signalled to stop by a
swinging lantern on the slope of a hill. Aa
ne did so three men boarded the train. One
took the engineer, another the fireman, and
a third the expressmau. All were com
pelled to dismount and kept marching up
and down the prairie at the point of a shot
gun, while the remainder of the gsng, sup
posed to number five all told, went through
the express car.
' The messenger professed not to know the
combination of the safe and dynamite waa
promptly applied to it. The woodwork of
tho car, of the ccmblnatton variety, waa
blown to pieces and the safe yielded Ite
treasure, just bow much the express com
pany refuses to state, but it Is known ta

Officer are still in pursuit of the fleeing
train robbers, but havs not yet overtaken
them, 8o many hour has now elapsed
that there Is little hope or effecting their
capture. At last report officers had found
but alight clues beyond the trail they left
In the road.. Since then .rain has set la
and these will speedily be obliterated.
There were four men In the robbery.
The three bandit first held up the train
and compelled it to run to a point where
the fourth roan waa in waiting. After the
swag was secured two went east and two
north, stealing a buggy from a nearby
farmer for the purpose of facilitating their ,
getaway. An abandoned horse and buggy
was found In the road five miles northeast
this afternoon. It answers the description
of the stolen rig.
Another clue reported late In the after
coon was that three men believed to an
swer the description given by tho fireman,
engineer1 and express messenger were re
ported at Meadows, a small station on the
Rock Island. Two came In on the passen
ger and met another man. After a 'hur

to Louisville and the other took a train.

Jap Murray was arrested at Loulsvlll
by Detective Malone, but he proved an
alibi and waa discharged from custody.
Another suspect Is reported to have been
arrested at Cedar Creek.
Superintendent Butler of the express
company arrived at noon and effectively
closed the mouths of all local employe.
He declines to give the amount taken and
rumor placea it all the way from $1,400
to $50,000. The big safe's waybills are all
blown to pieces and It Is possible that the
company cannot tell how much paper
money wa taken until claim are made.
The tales related by the trainmen show
It to have been a decidedly dramatic aud
What the Fireman Saw.
Charles R. Hutchison, the fireman, say:
"The first thing we saw was someone
swinging a red lantern. When we came to
a full atop the man who had flagged us
railed to me to get off the engine. I wa
in the gangway and when he spoke I
stepped back into the cab. He then
boarded the engine and, with hi gun
pointed at Clayburg and myself, aald In
" 'Com down and open tb door of th
express car tor us.'
"By this time another fellow entered
from the other side of the gangway with
a gun in his hand. Both robber were
about five feet ten inchea tall, had dark
hair and weighed, I should Judge, about ISO
pounds. The express car was the second
one from the ngine and, aa we had just'
passed over a bridge, we told the men that
w did not want to go back to the car In
the darkness, as we might get hurt by fall
ing in the opening. 'Pull ahead, then,'
said the robber. We then both got on tha
engine and pulled the express car over the
"We then were ordered to get down again
and go to the car and tell the measeuger
who we were and ask him to open the door.
Before we reached the door the leader
fired a shot at one of the trainmen who,
when the train came to a standstill, grrf.
off with his lantern to see what was up.
Mesarnaer Would Kot Open.
"Clayburg called to the messenger to
open the door, at the aame time telling
him that It was the engineer and fireman
and that a couple of men wanted to get la
the car. The messenger did not obey.th
call and the while the robbers were hesitat
ing what to do next, a third man from the
aide of the road called out:
"Are you ready for me, BUI?",
The leader replied:
' 'Yes, come on.'
"One of the men then opened what I
supposed to be a carpet tack and took out
two stl'ks cf dynamite and placed them
In the door of the car. Then turning to
Claybura. he said:
" 'Light ibem sticks."
"The engineer made some excuse that he
had no matches and be was ordered to get
a torch from the engine and light the fuse.
Clayburg obeyed, but the fuse would not
burn. The leader turned to me and eald:
