According to all reports from the eastern
mine our men are getting the worst of It,
and while the miners are being reinstated

we cannot call a strike at the mines, non
union men seeming to be In possession of

instatement of our members by shutting
out anthracite coal wherever we can.
While negotiations looking toward a set

We believe the action of the firemen and
engineers in quilting work. helped the
Winers to win the tight.
Although It is true a majority of the
firemen are members of the miners' union,
they have retained their membership In
our union and have already asked tar enr

and I am going to call a meeting of tbe
executive board when action will be taken
looking to that end.
I will advocate that our members be or

that will bring tbe operators to time, I be

The members of the deputation . jlnted
out that the Australian supplies were at
their lowest ebb becsuse of prolonged
drouths In Australia, while the shipments
of frozen meat from the United States had
fallen off owing to tbe abort supply. Trad

hope of relief wss tbe readmlsslon of live

Mr. Hanbury admitted It was his personal

from cattle disease, but be was not sstls

taken tbe precaution to prevent its Intro

adopt regulations similar to the British.
Meantime Argentina was supplying more
frozen beef and mutton then ever before,

WASHINGTON, Oct. 2$. (Special Tele
gram.) Colonel John S. Mosby. special
agent of the Interior department, today
called upon Secretary Hitchcock and laid
before him (he results cf his Investigations
of the illegal occupancy of public lands In
Nebraska and other states by stork raisers.
Secretsry Hitchcock will take up Colonel
Mosby's report st sa esrly dste. It is said
at tbe lend office that It has been estimated
that millions of acres of public land that
ought rightfully to be open to homestead
settlers is now occupied by cattlemen. Land
Commissioner Hermann Is most emphatic
In his statement that he will make every
effort to enforce the law and remove the
fencing and give every assistance to the
homesteader to enter peacefully upon the
lands now feneed and rightfully a part of
the public domain. Mr. Hermann maintains
tbat If cattlemen are unlawfully occupying
public lands tbey should and will be ousted.
If tbe law la obnoxious to them, tbe only
appeal is to congress. The law la clear and
it will be most rigidly enforced against
such cattlemen as are found to be Illegally
upon public domain.' Colonel Mosby will
remain In Washington to be at hand to aid
the secretary of the Interior la solving the
present contention between tbe fenced-in
cattle raisers, small cattlemen and homesteaders.

These sentiments were echoed by the local
Christian pastors. Revs. Hilton and Hill

Debate Waaes Perseaal.
Earnest, even vehement expression waa
given todlvual opinions on Christian
union at yesterday's aessloa at tbs
Coliseum. Some personal questions wrr
addressed and in their answering it once
occurred that a speaker designated as
"utterly, unqualifiedly and maliciously
false" a report concerning him ta which
another speaker appeared to give credence.
Again, tbe charge was made that the
resolution ot Tuesday night approving the
federation of churches had been "rail
roaded through" by methods which Presi
dent Breeden, had he been in tha chair,
would not have permitted.
The discussion was precipitated and In
vited by Dr. B. B. Tyler, president of tbe
International Sunday febool association, and
now a pastor In Denver. He haa been cred
ited with founding tbe work of the Chris
tian church in Omaha twenty-four years
ago and has been a leader in the affaire of
tbe church for decade, but despite his
white hair Is still a speaker of powerful
voice, humorous lendencle and aa Indiffer
ence to public opinion that be gave expres
sion to Thursdsy from ths rostrum la
these words: "You msy damn me or not
I had ratber be damned by some mil than
saved by them."
Steads for Chrlstlsa t'nlea.
Dr. Tyier read aa addreas la which hs
stood squarely and openly tor Christian
union, saying' "To voluntarily remain
divided Is voluntarily to remain In sin. Our
divisions binder the work ot evangelisation
at home and abroad."
In his Introductory remarks Dr. Tyler
made reference, without using names, to the
action of Editor J. A. Lord of tbe Christian
Standard and others to defeat tbs federa
tion resolution ot Tuesday nlgbt aad added,
with an amiable smile: "Just because I
wasn't here with my patent spankoblle you
behaved very badly."
Evacge'ist Simpson Ely of Minnesota hsd
been with Lord in tbe protest and this
reference apparently nettled him, for later
he dragged forth a charge against Tyler.
At tbe concluiion of Dr. Tyler's address
be propounded three queries and Invited
a general dlaruation of them. Tbe discus
sion didn't follow tbs lines hs laid down,
but were none the less electrifying ta the
convention, wblch Is still quits largely at
tended. His queries were:
"What modification or modifications of
our proposition on the aubject ot Christian
union ought we make?"
"Wtat feat urea of our plea for union
ought to be made especially prominent ta
meet the changed conditions?"
In what ways can we promote anion
