HARD COAL SCALE DEADLOCK
Miners Present Two Counter Propositions,
Both of Which Aro Rejected.
RECOGNITION OF THE UNION IS WAIVED
One Offer Is to Submit the Entire
Controversy to the Strike Com
mission Dlsappoln t men t
NEW YORK, April 12. At the meeting of
the subcommlttcs of the anthracite mine
workers and operators here today, the
representatives of the employes offered the
mine owners the choice of two propositions
in their endeavor to come to an amicable
agreement and the employers made an
Informal reply, in. which they intimated
that they are not likely to accept either of
the wage workers' offers. The operators
will make an official answer to the miners'
latest proposition by letter and there will
be no further meetings until something
developes. The meeting today did not
bring the contending parties closer to
gether. If the operators should decline to
entertain either of the propositions sub
mitted by the miners today It Is probable
a convention of miners will be called at
which the delegates will declare that a
strike exists. -.A.ni
Briefly stated the offer made by President-
Mitchell today .was a-'reabnnslon of
the mipers' original, demands wUhtwo
amendments and In case they are -not ac
cepted he proposes that the whole contro
versy be placed before thettike com
mission. . "i
. Recognition of I nloa Walred.
In one of the amendmenta to the original
demands President Mitchell drops the re
quest for the recognition of the union and
provides that the proposed agreement be
made between the operators and the an
thracite mine workers instead of
United Mine Workers of America. The
other amendment provide! that only em

ployes who are willing shall be assessed
a certain sum each month to defray the
expenses of carrying out the proposed
check-off agreement Instead of union and
nonunion men being called upon to contri
bute. If the operators will not accept the
original demands as amended, the miners
propose that they (the original demands
as amended) and the operators' first prop
osition, which provides for a renewal for
three years of the award of the anthra
cite strike commission, be referred for ,
arbitration to the strike commission. 1 bus
the miners drop their second offer, which
provided for arbitration by the concilia
tion board and ignore the operators' second
proposition with the exception of the strike
cimmissinn feature, which they accept.
The miners propose that any vacancy in
the anthracite strike commission shall be
filled by President Roosevelt.
The conference adjourned subject to the
call of the two chairmen, Messrs Mitchell
Baer and Trneadale Talk.
Mr. Baer made the following answer to
the miners communication:
We regret that you have not accepted our
propositions. We do not' feel that we can
modify thein. We will hereafter answer
your communication of this dale by letter,
or If you desire a further meeting the lime
can be arranged now or be hereafter fixed
by the respeciise chairmen.
President Truesdale of the Lackawanna
railroad, was asked to explain Chairman
Baer'a brief statement. He said that it
could be accepted as meaning that the
operators stand absolutely by their counter
proposition submitted on Tuesday. As the
situation stands now Mr. Truesdale thought
if'Wa-not too-much-' to say that negotla
tions between the operators and the miners
had practically been suspended. The op
erators will take up the miners' proposi
tion of today, however, and make formal
reply early In the coming week.
At his headquarters this evening Presi
dent Mitchell confirmed the Interpretation
that the first amendment to his original de
mands eliminates the request for the rec
ognition of his union. Technically Mr.
Mitchell and his colleagues are not appear-
Ing before the operators as officers of the
I'nlted Mine Workers, but as representa
tives of the anthracite mine workers. This
was also their status before the strike com
mission In 1902-S.
Disappointment Anion Miners.
PHILADELPHIA, April 12.-Reports re
ceived here from all sections of the anthra
cite coal field are to the effect that the
mine workers are greatly disappointed at
what they regard as a virtual suspension of
negotiations between the operators and
miners' representatives In New' York. In
the various districts the headquarters of the
mine workers' local organizations were
thronged the greater part of the day by ex
pectant crowds seeking Information con
cerning the result of the conference. The
belief is generally expressed that President
Baer's brief answer to the amended propo
sition offered by Mr. Mitchell and the scale
committee leaves but small hope for an
amicable settlement of the questions at Is
sue. There was little anticipation that the con
ferences would adjust the differences today,
but the opinion had prevailed that the ne
gotiations would reach a stage which w ould
end the suspension of mining operations
and permit the Idle men to return to work
pending a final agreement. There la some
speculation as to whether Mr. Mitchell will
wait until he receives the answer to hts
latest proposition by mail as promised by
the operators, before announcing his next
step, or whether he will cull a convention
to take action upon the situation.

greatly relieved the aulphurous darkness.
"We reached Torre Annunrlata at 3
o'clock in the morning. There was little
suggestion of. a disaster, a we trudged
through the sleeping tewn to the lava, two

a superb view of the volcano, a gray
brown mass rising, expanding and curling
in with a profile like a monstrous cyclon

a suggestion of the fascination of this aw

which was ce'ntrsl at Ban Giuseppe.
"With Mr. Bowen I left Pompeii in a

We had not llie heart to Insist, so the
rest of the journey to the railway at
Paltna, eight miles, was made laboriously
on foot for three hours through sliding
cinders. In many places temporary shelters
had been built by the roadside, like chil

coming of supplies which the army had
begun to distribute. The men were largely
occupied with shoveling cinders from the

drawn by donkeys or pushed by peasanta
were making their way along, the women

Although Mrs. Sylvester Proctor and Mrs.
Grace Younkln positively identified Dan
McCarthy, In the presence of Detectives
Mitchell ind Donolioe and a reporter for
the Bee, as being the jiian who held them
up Thursday evening at Twenty-third and
Vinton streets, the other circumstantial
evidence against the prisoner was not such
as to warrant filing a complaint of high

however, arraigned in police court Thurs

sentenced to thirty daya in the county jail.

HARRIMAN 'PHONE SYSTEM
Through Service on Pacific Road
Began In Wyoming by James
Construction has been begun by the
Vnlon Pacific In Wyoming on the new In
dependent telephone system to be estab
lished by E. H. Harrlmnn along the lines
of the Union Pacific and Southern Pacific
from Chicago to San Francisco. James
McReynolds, who has just completed the
construction of 2,000 miles for the Postal
TeWgraph company In Wyoming, will have
charge of the work, with headquarters in
Cheyenne. This line will be built for the
purpose of facilitating the handling of
trains. A separate pole line which will be
used exclusively for the telephone and
block system will be built the entire length I
of the system. These poles will not be
high, but especially strong, as the primary
object of the telephone will be for use In
despatching trains when the telegraph la

constructed will be from Green River to
Cheyenne and will be completed this year.

Vlie Devil and the Deep Sa.
When coffee gets a person well within
its grip and the drug habit Is fixed then
comes twisting and turning to get free.
With many people, if the coffee Is left
off at breakfast a headache sets in, und 'if
coffee is taken the old stomach and nerv
ous disorders are simply added to and
made more fixed and harder to escape
from. Still there Is a very easy way to
freedom and health.
A woman in Mo. says:
"1 never thought uf attributing my ail
ments to coffee till several months ago, I
saw a Postum Food Cuffoe advertisement
which stated that the old kind of coffee
was frequently injurious to people, so I
thought I would try Postum, anyway, for
I waa in a most wretched condition, a
nervous wreck with weak heart which
lluttered and threatened to atop.
"The first time I made Postum Coffee,
I boiled It well and was delighted with
the flavor. My husband who did not know
that it was not the old kind of coffee,
relished it very much, saying "What good
coffee that is!' Hut after breakfast 1 waa
taken with a headache and drowsiness
caused by the lack of the customary drug.
I was resolute, however, and drank it for
dinner and supper. The next day the head
ache was not so bad and by the third day
it was gone, bay by day I felt better, and
soon noticed that I did not tire so easily
as I used to. in two weeks my friends
began to compliment me on my Improved
condition. I rapidly gained In flesh and
strength, and In 3 monihs was a new being
with strong, steady nerves and easy, com
fortable, healthy heart action. I feel like
thanking you ao much for Postum Food
Coffee." Name given by Postum Co.,
Battle Creek. Mich.
Headache, when coffee is left off, is rara,
but is a sure, infallible sign of a poisoned,
drugged nervous system, calling more and
more tor the drug that caused the trouble.
To yield to the fierce demand of the drug
habit Is most humiliating and sinks the
victim deeper, with certainty of fixed or
ganic disease if persisted in. It Is easy to
change from cottee, if Postum Food Coffee
id used in Us place, for Postum well made,
that is, boiled long enough, has the deep
aval brown of Mocha and the soft smooth
tnot stiongt flu or much like old Gov't
Java, the taste being distinct hoaever and
belonging only to genuine Postum. Leav
ing off coffee that breaks down the nerve
centers and taking a food drink that sup
plies the needed elements to rebuild them
