Anthracite Mins Owners Meet to Consider
Reply to Mitchell's Offer.

Work Leaders Pleased
NEW YORK. April 7.-A conference of
anthracite coal operators was held here
this afternoon to consider the reply to be
made on Monday to the subcommittee of
the Shamokln scale committee of the
miners. The session was a brief one ami
at Its conclusion It was announced the
operators would meet again on Monduy,
prior to the Joint session with the mine
workers. That tho operators will have
some sort of counter plan for the arbitra
tion proposed by President Mitchell Is quite
generally believed here tonight, but no
Intimation of Its character can be had.
Today's conference waa attended by till the
principal operators of the anthracite region.
President Mitchell remained at miners'
headquarters at the Ashland house through
out the day. Only three or four of his
assistants are in, the city, most of the
leaders having gpne to their homes over
Mr. Mitchell reiterated today the state
ment he has already made to the effect
that he la well satisfied with the progress
of affair In the western and southwestern
states. Reports from his men In the tleM,
he said, are up to his expectations.
President Frank Fcehan of the United
Miners' district organisation announced
this afternoon that from tho number of
signatures to the agreement received up to
noon today , mines producing full 80 per
cent of tonnage of the Pittsburg district
will be in operation on Monday, in addi
tion to those already reported the most
Youghloghney & Ohio Coal company and
Its alleged Interests which produce an
nually over 1,000.000 tons. The signing of
the agreement to pay the 1903 acale waa In
terpreted by the Independent to mean the
granting of all the concessions obtained
by tho miner during the last two years.
Miner Stand by Mitchell.
PHILADELPHIA. April 7.-The end of
the first week of Idleness In the anthracite
coal region, following President Mitchell'
order suspending mining operations pend
ing the result of the negotiations between
the operators and uilne representatives In
New York, find the mine worker staunch
In the support of Mitchell, with no sign
of wavering. It cannot be said that the
optimistic view held by the mine workers
during the early part of the suspension
are so generally entertained, but there
appears to be no lack of confidence In
President Mitchell's Judgment. This was
evidenced at the meetings of the miners'
locals, which were held throughout the
region during the latter part of the week.
In every instance It is reported that resolu
tion were adopted expressing confidence
in Mr. Mitchell and pledging full support
of any action he might deem necessary.
It la reported that If President Mitchell s
arbitration plan Is accepted by the oper
ators tho miners' leader will endeavor to
have the anthracite freight earnings of the
coal carrying roads a part of the miners'
case before the board of conciliation or
the umpire who must finally pas upon
the matter In dispute. The claim. It 1
an Id, will be made that the freight charge
are a considerable factor In establishing
the selling price of hard coal and that
without a knowledge of the .freight earn
inga the miners cannot expect to combat
the statement of the coal companies that
the limit of mining cost'has been reached.
Report from all" sections of the hard
coal region are to the effect that there Is
little change In the situation. The com
panies have made little effort to start their
colllerlea with the exception of the Belle
vue colliery at Scranton, which has about
100 men at work. In some Instances prep
arations for a resumption are said to be In
progress. In other cases the mule have
been taken out of the mines, which Is re
garded as an Indication that a rejection of
President Mitchell' arbitration proposi
tion Is anticipated.

Threats ear Plttahnrn, Kansas.
PITTSBURO, Kan. April 7 One hundred
nnd fifty union coal miners, now out on
the present suspension of woik. marched
from Frontenac to the La Belle Coal com
pany's mine near here today and forced
thirty men nt work to quit. No violence
of nny consequence wna used, but It Is
said' that threats were made to burn the
mine tipple and other buildings If the coin
ny persists In operating the mines. Henry
Wilson, general manager nf the La BHIe
company, said Inter that he would operate
the mine in spite of the Interference.
The demonstration was tinauthortxcil hv
the miners' union, whose officers exntvss
regret. It seems that the distill Ivim e
made by the most Illiterate of the Italian
miners, and that they did not know thtit
the scale had been sinned. The mine ill
be operated Monday.
The Iai Belle company has sium-d the

until all operators have signed.
