CLEVELAND, 0., May 14.—Tho convention of miners was called to order by President John MeBride, at 11 o'clock a. m., in Bank Street hall, with about 200 delegates present. A committee was appointed, composed of one or two deleg-ates from each district, to hear reports from the various mining sections represented, in regard to any grievances and as *o what action they desire taken in regard to the scale, and then adjournment was taken to await the report of the scale committee. The afternoon session was held behind closed doors. So far as could be ascertained the meeting was harmonious. President McBride, of the United Mine Workers of America, is here, and he stated to the United Press correspondent that, so far as he could see, the prospects of ft settlement of the strike by the Cleveland meeting were very slight indeed. Of one thing he was certain, and that was that no local settlements would be allowed. The miner* were out for living wages in a national strike, and nothing short of a national victory woald do. It has been lonrned that a number of the leading operators of the Pittsburgh district have en- nouuoiid that they will not at;oad.tb meeting nor be bound by its conclusions. These men hold the key to the situation, as without their concurrence the meeting will be a failure. HIS ALLEGED fHIMKS.

He disposed of one child who bothered him in 188«. Th* murder in Illinois IK taid to have been committed before he came west, and the one in Sacramento valley after hi* arrival.
