CHARGES AGAINST GEORGE COX
Inriaea Testify He Tried to Influence
Court In Deciding' Water
CINCINNATI. O.. March 10. Two Judges
of the circuit court, In testimony before
the Drake Investigating committee of the
state senate, this afternoon charged that
Oeorge B. Cox. formerly republican leader
n Hamilton county, had tried to influence
the Judgment of that court In a suit In-
olvlng a LVi(i,ioo Ixjnd. while a third Judge
(stifled that Cox had simply asked him
that the case lie given a fair and Impar
tial hearing when it came up on an appeal.
This testimony came nt the close of a day
devoted to testimony regarding the pur
chase of turnpikes, much of it of compara
tively minor importance. The Judges of
the circuit court had been subpoenaed as
witnesses, the general understanding being
that they were to appear with personal In
terest In one or another of the turnpikes.
The examination, however, took an en
tirely different turn.
Judge Ferdinand Jelke, Jr., of the cir
cuit court was the first witness. Attornev
Roetllnger .called attention , to the, suit
brought in 1890 by the city against, the
1-aue . & Bodlcy Co. and the American
Bonding company for , $500,000 . for an al
leged default aa contractor in building the
city waterworks, in whlcn the lower court
had given Judgment for m,712, and asked:
'I want to ask you If an effort was made
to influence the Judgment of your court
In the final disposition of this case?"
Judge Jelke replied: "I can only speak
for myself; I cannot speak for my col
leagues. I do not know that I was sent
for, but I called on Mr. Cox in his office.
Mr. Cox said to me: 'Judge, that Lane &
Badley case Is coming up for hearing In
your court. I wish you would find some
way of reversing it.' I satd: 'Mr. Cox,
that case will be tried on Its record, Just
like any other caae." "
What did Mr. Cox say In reply?"
'There was very little said. He said he
had been one of my associates on the
bench. My Impression waa that he waa not
Judge Oiffen's testimony was similar to
that of Judge Jelke.
Judge Peter F. Swing of the circuit court
testified that he remembered the case
against the Iane & Bodley Co. and the
American Bonding company. He said:
I don't remember where it occurred, but
t had a conversation with Mr. Cox about
the caae. At any rate. Mr. Cox said to me
there was some talk of a compromise, and
he wanted our court to give it a full and
fair consideration. He said nothing to me
about having a desire that the case be re-:

After hastily summoning Messrs. Fahey.
Detter;- and Hartleln, Mr. Mitchell an
nounced a postponement of the meeting
until tomorrow morning. The miners' pres
ident hopes to start for Indianapolis to
Answer from Operator.
Tho unusual activity around the miners'
headquarters at the Ashland house to
night, the hastily called meeting of the
subcommittee and Mr. Mitchell's post
poned departure for the west combined to
give rise to a rumor that the miners had
received the reply of the operators to
their demands or "propositions" submitted
the latter part of February. It also v.-as
rumored that the reply was unfavorable,
although no confirmation on this point
could be, obtained tonight either from the
miners or operators.
It Is surmised the negotiations between
the anthracite workers and the operatovs
have reachd the crucial stage. The re-
tlcvnce of all persons connected with the
negotiations Is construed by those watch
ing the situation as a distinctly unfavor
The price of hard coal will not be raised

is a strike, according to a statement Is
sued today by the newly created publicity
bureau of the anthracito operators. This
bureau was started yesterday by the com
mittee of seven operators which Is now
considering the miners' demands. Tho
statement is as follows:

stored In and about this city !.0(lo,(ioD tons
of coal ready for consumers. It lias ben

Concerning the coal dispute, one of the
members of the committee of seven, Da
vid Willeox of the Delaware Hudson
railroad, said lodny:
The subcommittee appointed last Tues
day to consider the propositions of the
anthracite miners appointed to the gen
eral committee of seven yesterday and the
full committee decided upon a reply to
the miners, which will he delivered to Mr.
Mitchell Just as soon as It can be printed.
Both the demands of tha miners and the
answer to them will bo made public the
day after they are delivered to the miners'
committee. Further than thin I ran r.y
nothing, for at the meeting of the oper
ators yesterday we decided that In view
of the fact that the matter under con
sideration is important there should be
one spokesman for all the operators, we
created a bureau 'of publicity.

Will Enter Indianapolis Convention
with Strong; Support.'
PITTSBURG, March 10. That President
Patrick Dolan of district No. 5, l'nlted
Mine Workers of America, will go to the
international convention with a strong sup
port from his own district la shown In the
teturns of the election of candidates by the
local unions. The anti-Dolan faction in
the district has been defeated in several
Instances and the- new delegates being
elected by the local unions reflect the work
of friends of the defiant president among
the men who were against him at the re
cent district convention.
The most surprising developments of the
election thus far held is the defeat of
James Watchorn by his local at California,
Pa., for delegute to Indianapolis. Watchorn
is decidedly hostile to Dolan and at the
late convention In Pittsburg he was the
floor leader of the Dolan opposition.
Watchorn has arranged to go to the na
tional convention as a delegate from soma
other locul and will continue the fight
against Dolan there.
Patrick Dolan, when asked concerning
the contest ovef the election aa president
of the district, aald today that he was
unmoved and would not change In hie origi
nal attitude. He declares that he will carry
his case to the highest court before being
shoved aside Illegally by his enemies.
Because of the conciliatory attitude of the
local operatora at their meeting In Pitts
burg yet'erday, a more hopeful view waa
taken by all Interests In the strike situa
