preliminary session of the commission, to
be held here on Friday morning.
LONDON, Oct 22. A futile attempt "
made in the House of Commons this after
noon to secure a day for a debate on the
tate of Ireland.
The liberal leader, 8ir Henry Campbell-
Dannerman, supported the request, which
Premier Balfour said would be granted on
the understanding that the motion took
the form of a vote of censure on the gov
ernment and was supported by the opposi
tion as a whole.
A lively discussion ensued In which alle
gations of discourtesy were made and the
prevailing Ill-feeling was Increased.
William O'Brien afterward gave notice of
resolution declaring the operation of the
crimes act In Ireland was not Justified, was
unfair in Its application, opposed to civil
ised usage in its administration and cal
culated to undermine respect for the law,
and estrange tho people of Ireland.
The nationalists refrained from voting
on any of the -amendments to the education
WILKE8BARRE. Pa., Oct. 22. Thousands
of men began work today, repairing the
mines and placing the collieries in condl
tlon for the general resumption of coal
mining, which will take place throughout
the anthracite region tomorrow. Those
men who are directly engaged In cutting
and handling coal will not under the de
cUion of the convention return to the mines
While there were thousands of men who
were abla to again begla earning their dally
bread today, there were hundreds who were
disappointed when they applied to the eu
pertntendenta of the collieries where they
were formerly employed. They were prin
cipally steam men, engineers, firemen and
pump runners who struck on June 2 for an
eight-hour day and also to help the miners
win their battle.
These men wsnted their old places back.

CINCINNATI. Oct 22. The first and only
republican rally In this county this year
was addressed tonight by Senators Bever
Idge, Forsker and Hanna.
Senator Foraker presided arid In congrat
ulating the republicans eulogised Governor
Nash and President Roosevelt
Scnstor Foraker reviewed former cam
paigns Lnd their leaders, saying there
never was one like that of this yesr, when
the democrats had no Issues and no leader
unless Tom Johnson Is their lesder. He
reviewed the old Issues, saying the last
was the strike, which President Roosevelt
had removed, so that mow the democrats
were without IsBue, leader or hope.
Senator Hanna dlscused national Issues
and in referring to the success of Presi
dent Roosevelt and Mr. Mitchell In closing
the strike, advocated a partnership be
tween capital and labor, a partnership of
equal rights and fair treatment He said
the conditions were now in favor ot or
ganized labor being fully recognized by
capital, and ha wanted organized labor
He referred to the different elements of
organized labor and hoped that capital In
the future would go more than half way.
This he considered the greatest develop
ment of the twentieth century
He Insisted that the reconciliation should
be developed Into a full partnership and
treated aa such both by employers and em
ployes, so that one would be as free to go
to the officers as the other to the shops.
MINERAL RESOURCES OF U. S.
Interesting Features of Resort Shows
Knmber of Worklagc Days

WASHINQTON, Oct 22. The annual vol
ume on the mineral resources of the United
States for 1901, prepsred by Dr. David T.
Day of the geological survey, baa bsen sent
to press snd will be Issued soon.
An Interesting feature-ot the report la a
compilation of statistics showing the num
ber of worklog days lost la strikes In the
coal industry. These figures Include the
present yesr and are brought up to date.
The total number of days lost for the pres
ent yesr is placed at 20,000.000, compared
with 733,802 In 1901, 43,878.103 In 1900 and
2,124,154 in 1899.
The report places the total mineral prod
uct of the country for the year at $1,086,
629,521, a gain of a little more thsa t per
cent over the production of 1900. The gain
was msde In the non-metallic products and
amounted to $55,065,882, against a loss of
$32,150,909 in the metalllo products.
As heretofore Iron and coal are shown to
be the most Important of our mineral prod
ucts. The value of Iron la 1901 waa $242,
174.000. as compared with $259,944,000 In
1900, and the value of coal was $348:910,449.1
as compared with $306,671,864 in 1900.
The value of fuels Increased from $406,
359,351 In 1900 to $442,395-304 In 1901, a gain
of almost 9 per cent Every vsrlety of fuel
increased iu value except petroleum, which
showed an Increase In quantity ot 5,768,665
barrels, but a decline la value of $9,671,978,
due largely, the report states, to ths less
valuable character of the Increased product
of the new petroleum fields as compared
with the older fields Anthracite coal In
creased 9,021,207 long tons in output and
$26,746,169 In value. The average price of
anthracite coal per ton at the mine was
$2.05, the highest figure obtained since 1S89,
and the average price per ton for bitumi
nous coal at the mine waa $1.05, about 1 per
cent more per ton than la 1904.

NDIANS IN DIRE DISTRESS
Worst Droath la History of Kow
Mexico Leaves Their Crops
a Total Failure.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 22. The worst
drouth ln the history of northern New Mex
ico prevailed' during the six months ending
last July, says the annual report ot the
agent at the Jlcarilla Apache Indian agency,
Tbe crops for 1902 are a total failure,
The Indians dug under the rocks for enough
water to quench their thirst and drove their
stock for daya before finding water for
them. Many horses, cattle, sheep aad
goata, according to the agent, died of hun
ger and (hirst "The Indians," ha says
"have been drinking water that would kill
an ordinary man. In spite ot their self.
help there is not enough Income to keep the
Indians from want.
The remedy advocated by the report is
tha sale of their timber, which. It is stated.
would soon enable them to support them
selves if the proceeds were applied to tbe
purchase ot sheep and cattle. If a remedy
is not applied the report suggests it is
likely that the Jlcarilla Apachea always
will be a burden to the government

Comparison of Schools.
Universities and colleges furnished a
theme for Scot Butler, president ot Butler
college. Indianapolis. He spoke ot tho
, . school as the type ot the university, and
of the denominational achool aa the college.
Tbe state school bas unlimited funds for
the support of its teachers and to provide
equipment. Very often the small college
has a small staff of teachers and a tery
meager equipment. It is this that makea
It so difficult tor the college to compete
with tbe great atate achool.
president Butler gave it as bis opinion
that there Is about as much religion ln tha
university aa ln the college, which la aup-
posed to belong to the church. Tharo has
been a great change for the better ln thia
respsct ln the last thirty years. Ia the
state schools there are numerous voluntary
agencies and these are active and efficient.
The speaker gave much consideration to
the question If the schools of our time aro
doing the work needed. Many or them
make it their businesa to Impart Informa
tion. Othera thick it Is the first duty of a
school to prepare Its pupils for the buslneaa
ot life. With them utility is tha main
thing. President Butler thinks that Chris
tian culture Is tbe thing to ba eought. Tha
school that does not turn a out me a and
