In the Lehigh Valley. With regard to the general strike situation in the Lehigh valley it cannot be said tbiii- manv threat gains were,;made' on either side to-day. Some who quit work yesterday at the Coxe, Tomhicken, Der-;i,,.,,. n,i Ron mines returned to-day. The Lehigh Valley Coal Co. reports more men working 10-ciay man any t"." the strike began. The labor, leaders claim accessions to their ranks from both the mines at Eckley and Lattimer. . The daily production of coal-in the dls-, trict is steadily decreasing. This Is shown from the shipments of coal from the region to-day, which indicate a falling off of more than 75 per. cent. Edgar Gulick, general, superintendent of Coxe Bros. & Co.'s colliery, who was'ar' rested yesterday on complaint of Peter Gallagher, a striking mine worker at Free-land, was to-day fined $5. The superintendent is charged by Gallagher ot driving his horse Into him and otherwise annoying. Gulick refused to pay the fine and will probably take the case to court. Intimidated, by StrlkerM. Shenandoah, Pa., September 26. The closing to-night of the Cambrldo colliery, operated by the Cambrlde Coal Co., completed the tie up in the vicinity of this borough. This Is a small operation employing about 140 men and was the only colliery working to-day between Hazelton and Ashland. D. R. James, a member of the firm, Informed Provost Marshal Miller to-day that strikers had Intimidated the men and that tne company decided to suspend operations to' insure the safety of the employes. Mr. James told Major Miller that strikers had entered the homes of Cambridge employes at night and threatened them with , bodily harm if they continued to work. Brookwood wash-ery. east of Mahanoy Plane, was working with a full force this morning, when a number of strikers visited the place and induced the men to return to their homes. The strikers did not resort to violence. At Ashland the Bast colliery resumed today with almost its entire force. The Potts colliery, at Locustdale, and Locust Spring colliery, at Locust Gap, are also in operation. There Is no change in the situation at Mahanoy City, all the collieries there remaining idle. The men are quiet, but ' express determination to remain out. Gen. Go-bin remained at his headquarters all day and was in communication with Gov. Stone this afternoon. To-night the general said there was no Indications of an outbreak around Hazelton, although he was fully prepared In the event of a eall for troops. The Girardvllle and Gllberton washeries were closed to-day. The strikers persuading the employes to quit. Both Sides Confluent. Wllkesbarre, Pa , September 26. The tenth day of the strike closed without any change In the Wyoming valley. All the mines that were idle the first day were idle to-day. And the one mine, that continued in operation the first day Is still at work the one at Mocanaqua. The operators seem to be abiding their time confident that in the end victory is going to be on their side. The strikers on the other hand are just as confident. If their leaders are to be believed the men are more confident of winning now than at any time since the strike was inaugurated. The local operators say the. statement Issued by the Markles Tvas;the only' proper stand to take considering the conditions existing between employer and employe and that the Markles have played Mmjgs&m Ml a and - ct STANDARD TIME FOLLY DISCUSSED LABOR REPRESENTATIVES STRONGLY OPPOSE A 'CHANGE. REPRESENTATIVES OF BUSINESS INTERESTS FAVOR IT. If Factories Adopt Standard Time, Labormen May ault the Fight. Tho laboring element, through its representatives, assisted by some other-citizens came near puncturing the boom for a general change to standard time yesterday. Aid Joy's special tKju.icil committee to discuss the proposed change met with numerous-citizens In the council chamber and Mstned to many novel opinions, all based on "different views. With scarcely an ex-cepticn, all representatives of the progressive element oi the city-the manufacturers, toe shopkeepers, the railroad officials, the theater men, the hotel men. the steamboa. -ten and the bankc-s-put themselves on Record as being strongly and urgently in favor of the adoption of standard time a test for the city's interests. ' The argument of the laboring cement was invariably thj same-a fear that their time of recreation would be curtailed. Tne.. nevr considered for a moment that the factories could change working hcurs a half hour so as to make no difference whatever in the length of tho daylight hours of running time. Aid. Keinlntrt P"8 that the matter ought to oc subm.Ued to a vote of the people for decision at the coming November election, which, unles. sn immense campaign of education was conducted meanwhile, would mean the overwhelming defeat of the much needed reform. The labor representatives, Francis Fil-dew and Aid. Tossy, argued that the creator established Detroit time and it ought therefore to answer. Confusion would result from any change and disaster and inconvenience to the laboring people would follow. It was charged that the railroads had initiated tho agitation for standard lime and that gas arid electric light companies would be the chief garnets b its Adoption. Aid. Tossy averred that nine out ot every 'en workingmen in the city were averse to the change. tArA It was proposed that eastern standard time which prevails across the river, should be adopted, but C. F. Etelmaop-posed the idea. He stated that his .company is compelled to run Its boats by standard time because It is in use in towns at which the boats stop. . o Secretary Jones, of the Detroit Copper & Brass Rolling Mills, said that his emploves favor standard time. In behalf of this time it was argued that it would be better to get up half an hour earlier and quit work half an hour sooner than is nftw done under local time. t Levi L. Barbour, George H. Barbour, C. F. Bielman, Attorney Callender for C. A. ,i.nmh .T W. Pales. John Davis and others spoke on behalf of central standard George H. Barbour combatted the contention that the proposed change would cause confusion. He said that men, under the new system would go to work at :J2 . . .1 i i. i .i n In nln r-o n f tilA present hours, and no more gas, electric .... ,. i.i 1 ...Jn .lion o . mO lignt Or Oil WOU1U oe uueueu nia., ... .. present time. He said he thought the opposition to the change arose from a lacK of understanding of thS matter. Cyrus E. Lothrop and Truman H. Newberry opposed any .change on the ground that laborers could not be Induced to alter their customs because an ordinance, was passed. Mr. Newberry said the employes of the concerns In which he is interested oppose standard time. Mr. Lothrop asserted that-only gas and electric light companies would be benefited by a change. - Rev. Nehemlah Boynton argued that tne point to be settled Is whether the advantage due to any chamre Is greater than the inconvenience. Nothing of advantage to 'a community was ever adopted without an inconvenience to some one. George H. Barbour expressed- the opinion that all the factories in the city would adopt standard time and the labor representatives stated that, if assured of that, opposition on their part would be withdrawn. , , The committee finally decided to go to Cleveland "to see what time it is," as one expressed It; but the object intended Is to examine into the charges that the attempted change to standard time in that city had resulted in most dismal confusion. Later in the day, Chairman Joy announced that the junket had been declared off, the committee feeling that all necessary Information could be gained at home. The heads of several manufacturing concerns who were asked by The Free Press whether they would establish working hours running from 0:30 a .m. to 5:30 p. m., standard, or from 7 a. m. to 6 p. m., standard time, replied that probably the choice of hours would be left to the employes.

Havana, September 2.-The Havana press by a combined effort has succeeded in inducing the municipality to attend to public business. Charter reforms are now under consideration. At to-day's meeting of the council it was suggested the salaries to be paid in future ought to be Increased. It was also suggested that it would bo a wise thing for the municipality to decline to accept the charter, leaving to Gov. -Gen. Wood the onus of issuing it as an order of the military government. To-day Gen. Wood and Mr. Michael J. Dady. the Brooklyn contractor, discussed, the amounts to be paid under the Dady sewering and paving contract. Nothing was definitely settled, but the sum which the contractor will receive is likely to be about forty per cent less than the original figures. On the other hand about forty per cent more work will be done. Dr. Lazear, one of three medical experts who came to Havana to study yellow fever, died to-day of that disease. Of the other two, Dr. Carroll contracted the fever but has recovered and Dr. Reed has returned to the United States. KILLED IN A CAFE. CUBAN ARMY OFFICER SHOT AT SANTIAGO. Santiago, September 20.

JACKSON'S OPINION OF THE NOME DISTRICT. PEOPLE LEAVING AS FAST AS THEY CAN GET TRANSPORTATION. Considerable Gold, but the Claims Are All Staked. "The scenery is grand. In summer the mountain sides are covered with flowers, hut the fntellitrent man reads underneath them everywhere the inscription: 'You had better go home.' " Thus spoke S. W. Jackson in his home at "1S3 Lincoln avenue, hist evening. Mr. Jack son on Monday returned from a four months' stay .'n the Cape Ncme region ot Alaska, and he says that the world has been badly imposed upon in the stories of Its fabulous ric'hos. The United States government !s carrying away every month thousands of people who have been stranded there. July 1 there were 130,000 in Nome City and when he left there August 25 he says that there were between 15,000 to 1S.000. (Many of these were waiting for the government to supply transportation to them. They had gone up there, spent their fortune in the vain quest of gold and now are making their way back to civilization as best they can. In speaking of the country, Mr. Jackson said: "I do not wish to convey the impression that the country is destitute of gold. It is not. There are thousands of dollars' worth of the yellow metal there, but one must go after it with machinery, and even then one is taking a big chance. saw on the beach at Nome City, which thirteen miles from Cape Nome, $50,000 worth of machinery which the waves were destroying. Every few days they have a big storm there. It is a wind-swept coast with nothing to protect the iushroom city from the storm's fury. Repeatedly I have seen the wind rise, drive the sea In on the city, and in ten minutes do $1,000 worth of damage. The amount of damage that has been done there since the city was built couple of years ago will amount to millions. I have seen vessels of fifty or sixty tons' burden driven on the rocks anoV in fifteen minutes there was not a whole plank in them. The beach for several miles is lined with wrecked ships. "There are no claims within miles of Nome t'hat have not been taken. Some of them have been staked a dozen times and hundreds of them are in HUgyition. As soon as a claim shows up big someone claims It, the law steps in and work ceases. The Llndblum claim was paying $5,000 per day when C. D. Lynn stepped in, and now it is tied up. "Go along the coast for miles and you see plant after plant being ruined by rust because the claims have not panned out or are in litigation. The only place that was booming when we left -was Topcock. forty-five miles east oc Nome, where $75,000 had been taken out in a few tlavs. McDonald creek is exceedingly rich in gold, but everything is staked. The creek is bonded for more than, a million dollars. When we left, there had been a rush to Blue Stone, farther up the coast. At Nome and thereabouts miners who were washing $-1 and $5 per day were doing well. "The government is doing a wonderful work there. At Nome great barracks built galvanized iron are being put up, which, when completed, will hold 10.000 men. There are several of the big buildings and any number of small ones. The government is very careful of tho Indians there. When we entered Norton Sound, on the- steamer Ohio, which, by the way, is the steamer lhat. carried Gen. Grant on his trip around the world, the quarantine officials came on board and declared we had smallpox. I don't think there was any on board but they quarantined us on Egg Island. Be-fcrc- we could land, however, a government lat'nch went to the island and took all the Ii.dlans away, towing them in their long canoes. George M. Eenney, of 220 Avery avenue, who was employed by Boydell Brothers, accompanied Mr. Jackson and will return from Seattle later. They did not go to Nome to mine, but intended to speculate on the claims. Mr. Jackson says that before the winter cn nes tho population of Nome will be reduced to a few hundred, as people were leaving there by every ship. Cisrnriuiikers on Strike. Tampa, Fin., September 20. A general striUe was ordered to-day in the cigar factories of Sanchez & Hova arid Arguelles, Lopez & Bro. About 1,00-3 persors vere thrown out of work.

IS NOT PERMISSIBLE IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN TEACHING HOURS John Millar, deputy minister of education for Ontario, says that the two Catholic schools in Windsor do not conform with the public school act if religious instruction is given during school hours. Bishop McBvay raised this . point when he asked for separate schools, but some members of the board of education held that tho schools were legally conducted. The department will interfere if this section of the school law is being violated, but the deputy minister claims that the public school inspector should have reported the irregularity if it existed.

BRICK OFASPHALT. THESE ARE SFAVORBD FOR PORTIONS OF WINDSOR STREETS. Facts and FteureB Will le Obtained From Detroit Board 01 Works. A meeting of the prominent business men of "Windsor was hold in Mayor Davis' of- , flee yesterday to discuss the advisability of having some pavement other than macadam on portions of Sandwich street and Ouellette avenue. It appeared to be the opinion of all present that the macadam - pavement would not answer on these streets where horses are tied in front of business places and the animals soon paw boles in the pavement. The dust arising, it is thought, would also tie a source of annoyance to business men and those present were in favor of brick or asphalt. According to the provisions of the paving by law six months notice must be given by property owners who desire some particular kind of pavement on the street where their property- is situated and, as Ouellette avenue-end Sandwich street are scheduled to be paved next spring, it was thought best to come to some decision in the matter at once. George "Bartlet was appointed chairman and Francis Cleary secretary and they will secure figures from the Detroit board of works on the cost of ' different kinds of pavements and report at a subsequent meeting, subject to the call of the chairman.
