Annual Gas Rates Advises Those of Illinois to Compromlst with the Operators, Danville, Ills., Nov. 15.—A large meeting of miners arid operators assembled Saturday afternoon at the Grand Opera House to hear President Ratchford, of the United Jline Workers of America. His address was moderate, but very forcible, and he was repeatedly interrupted by storms of applause. He- explained to the miners that he favored a compromise, and did not insist on the scale fixed by the miners in settling the last strike, and he then stated his reasons. He said there are over 400,000 coal miners in this country, and out of that number 100,000 on!}' were on a strike; that the supply of coal in the market steadily increased instead of diminished each day during the strike; that after the third week the railroads had stopped all their confiscation?. Rock Springs, Wvo., Nov. 115.—The news from Chicag^that 5,000 China- men were to be taken from this state to be used in the coal districts of Illinois was read \vjth some amusemen here. The fact is that there are no 500 Chinamen in the state. Four hun dred and fifty of these are in this town where 400 of them are engaged in the :oal mines. They are perfectly satisfied Ti'ould not leave their Chinatown undei any consideration. FIRE IN A COLORADO MINE. A RTIFICIAL and Natural Gas Bills are now due and payable at the company's office.

Denver, Nov. 15.—A special to The .Republican from Aspen, Colo., says: A fire that bids fair promise, of closing down every big- mine in the camp is raging in the eighth level of the Smuggler mine. The cause of the catastrophe is supposed to be spontaneous com- bu'ition, although there are a few who are inclined to the theory that a careless miner and a candle are responsible. So far the fire is confined to a large crib and is burning at a point about SOO feet below the surface. This crib is eighty feet wide, 164 feet long and 300 feet high. It contains many thousands of cords of dry timber. So far as known these timbers have not broken into a blAze, but the supposition is that the entire base of the crib is burning. All efforts to reach the fire have proved unsuccessful, and an attempt to place bulkheads In the connection came near losing the lives of some fifty men. Over forty of those were so overcome by the deadly gas that for a time their lives were despa.ired of. It may turn out that the mine will have to be flooded, in which case it will flood every mine in the camp. Mob Bid Not Get Bud Btnrd. Birmingham, Ala.. Nov. 15.—The timely arrival of troops at Carrolton, Pickens county, about daylight Friday morning thwarted the efforts of a mob to lynch Bud Beard, colored, on trial there for rape. The lyr.chers were just preparing to close upon the court house where the sheriff and a dozen deputies had stood guard over the prisoner all night, when the Warrior Guards, of Tuscaloosa, drove up in four two-hoTse-wag-- ons and dispersed the throng. The trial took place Friday and Beard was sentenced to hang on Dec. 10. Governor \>Tio"W"oiild Be Senator. Farkersourg, W.

With a Few Statistical Pacts Drawn from the Experience of Countries TThich Have Tried the Scheme — Declared To Be Neither Costly Nor Kisky—Profits Shown by France and Great Britain—Mission of Premier Laurier and His Colleagues. Washington, Xov. 15.—Postmaster General Gary's annual report is made public. The most interesting part Is that relating to postal savings banks, which is as follows, summarized: Many mjll- lons of dollars are undouotedly secreted by people who have little or no confidence in ordinary securities and monetary institutions organized by private citizens. II. is dead capital, but if Its owners could be inspired with absolute confidence in the security of an investment it Is altogether probable that the bulk of this fund would find its way into the channels of trade and commerce. If the government undertook this task the service would undoubtedly be gladly accepted by the people. Their faith in the government is unbounded. Their little savings, which separately could hardly be put out at interest, would amount in the aggregate to a sum that could be invested to their advantage. What Uie System Would Accomplish. It would tend to cultivate thrift in a largre class, realizing the advantage of depositing with the government instead of wastefully and uselessly expending; it would tend to belter citizenship, bringing into closer relationship the government and its citizens and developing practical and enduring patriotism. This growth of patriotic sentiment and good citizenship constitute a powerful appeal to statesmanship to make a way for these beneficent consequences. The proposition is an accomplished fact in nearly every country in Europe, in the British dependencies of both hemispheres, and even in Hawaii. In Great Britain 7.000,000 depositors have upward of $550,000,000 in savings accumulated during- thirty-five years, and in ten years fewer than 10,000 Hawaiian depositors saved nearly 1,000.000. Deposits in Canada in twenty years exceeded 522.000,000. Little loss and Small Cost, These vast accumulations have been made with the least possible loss to the governments which guarantee their repayment, and with a minimum of cost to the millions of depositors. More than 1,000 postal savings accounts in European offices are held by miners and over two-thirds by the most humble callings. ! Ifc'-is esstntially the bank of this class. Postal savings would not conflict wit other savings banks, but would encour age savings rather than accumulations The conversion of money order offices in to savings depositories would soonaffor infinitely more facility for receiving in terest-bearing deposits than the inter est-paying banks do now. Security the Primary Object, of the System Security, and not the raff of interest is the primary and essential condition o such a system; and bonds of states counties, and municipalities and real es tate furnish an illimitable field. Tb postmaster general says tha nearly every country permits it most popular coin as the minimurr amount of deposit, varying from 5 cents in India to $1 in Canada, Maxi mum deposits vary from J2S5 in France to $2.435 in New Zealand. France made a profit in 1895 of $170,000 in handling 2.500,000 accounts aggregating $143,000,000, after paying 3 per cent, interest Great Britain earned a surplus of $83,000 after paying 2% per cent, interest on $480.000.000, made up of 6,500,000 accounts. are more or less interwoven with the Bearing sea question, and the consideration of ona involves to some extent the discussion of ell of them. The desire was, therefore, to give the views of the Canadian officials on all these subjects, and at the same time to secure the views of the American officials in the hope that some common ground of agreement might be secured. The purpose of this preliminary discussion. It la stated, is to have It take an official aspect later in case any common ground of agreement presents itself such as the formation of a commission to consider all pending- questions. The reciprocity meeting will be one of the several unofficial discussions. If it discloses any basis for mutual action, then the subject may assume an official phase later. RAPID ACTION OF JUSTICE. HI* Wife-Murderer, Two Weeks After Crime, in the Penitentiary. Denver, Colo., Nov. 15.—Frederick C. Banchez is now a. convict in Canon City penitentiary, doing- a life sentence for the murder of his young wife on Oct. 31. In less than two weeks from the commission of the crime the prisoner has been the subject of a lynching party that was frustrated through the vigilance of the sheriff, a jury has found him guilty, he has been sentenced and is n the state's prison. Sanchez Is. related :o the best families of New Mexico, but nas been the black sheep of the flock- Sis father has often interfered to save him from the law, and finally was compelled to send him away from his native territory to avoid prosecution for attempting the life of Miss Bernalillo, to whose hand he aspired. She spurned,'his suit and he tried to avenge himself, but was foiled in his design. It is suspected that he sought out Miss Jennie Warren, of Metropolis, Ills.^ through a matrimonial agency, for the express purpose of insuring her life and then killing her. The insurance aggregated $11,000. With this sum the prisoner expected to return to his own people and renew his attentions to his former sweetheart.. His defense was that he shot his wife while in a half-awakened somnambulistic state, underthe impression that she was a burglar. TO KILL OFF BASE BALL THUGGERY. OUR VISITORS FROM CAXADA. Their Trip to Washington and It* Purposes Arranged at Xxmdon at June. Washington, Nov. 15.—"While the plans of the Canadian contingent now in Washington in connection with the seal conference are not finally lixed it is the present expectation that Sir Wilfrid Laurier. the premier, with Sir Louis Davles and his personal following, will leave Washington on their return home today or tomorrow. The experts on seal life for pngiand and Canada, Thompson and Macoun. however, will remain here for a time pursuing the conferences in which they are now engaged with the United States experts. The statement was made Saturday 1 that the present visit of Sir Wilfrid and Sir Louis Davies was arranged at London during the queen's jubilee, when conferences were held between Lord Salisbury, Chamberlain and the Canadian officials. Colonel Foster, the American seal commissioner, was in London at the time, and was apprised of the proposed visit and of the sanction of the London authorities. This statement was called out by the misapprehension as to the official character of the present visit. The Canadian visitors have been annoyed at reports telegraphed to Canada to the effect that the visit was arranged by a private gentleman of Toronto who was in Washington recently. When this report was called to the at- ention of Sir Louis Davies he laughling-- y stated that it doubtless was inspired by a desire to prejudice and belittle the present visit in the eyes of the Canadian people. Without reflection on this rentleman personally it was stated that ie had no part in bringing about the visit, and that the entire arrangement tad been made in London during the ubilee. That pla.n, it was stated, referred only to the Behrtng sea meeting, and he present visit -was official only in relation to that one) Question. At the same time the visit afforded the opportunity for an unofficial exchange of •views on all the various questions at- ecting the relations between the Unit- States and Canada. These National League Mag-nates Propose to Forever Proscribe the Thuirs. Philadelphia, Nov. 15.—The annual fall meeting of the National Base Ball League was brought to a close Saturday evening. The double umpire system was adopted; provision was made for the suppression of rowdyism on the ball field, and it was decided to have four trips between the sections instead of tw as heretofore. The resolution adopted with referenc to raising the standard of behavior of players on the ball field provides for a committee of three to formulate and report at the spring meeting a plan which will eiefine foul, indecent and obscene language on the field and prescribe method of procedure for the punishment of offenders, the penalty for winch of fense. upon conclusive proof, shall be expulsion with a prohibition of engagement by any club operating under protection of the national agreement, without the possibility of pardon or reinstatement. Brush, Soden and Hart were appointed as the committee to formulate the plan. And This in "Bleeding Kansas!" Kansas City, Nov. 15.—Jack Dodds, a white farmer living seven miles west of Kansas City, Kas., shot and killed Edward Carter, an aged negro, while the latter was standing in the door of his home on the Eastwood farm, and fatally wounded Carter's 18-year-old son, William. Dodds was arrested and says he shot the men because he was unable to realize on $10 worth of improvements he had expended on the cabin, which was owned by Carter's employer and formerly occupied by Dodd?.

It was admitted by the officers that the society needed money and that the Bible house might; some day be sold, but further than that the report was denounced as utterly without foundation.

Bismarck, N. D., Nov. 15.—Alex Cou- *»t, Indian half-breed, and Paul Holy- track and Phillip Ireland, full-blooded Indians, the first of whom was sentenced to death for the murder of six of the Spicer family last February and had just been granted a new trial by the supreme court, and the latter two self- confessed accessories in the murder, were taken from the county jail in Emmons county Saturday night and ynched by a mob. The lynching had been apparently coolly planner!, and was carried out without a break in the pro- rramme, as is naturally the case in hr-se little affairs, Williamsport, where the hanging took place, is about forty miles from this city, and off the railroad. The news of the hanging was received here yesterday afternoon when a mounted messenger arrived, his horse in a foam from a swift ride, and announced that the three men had been lynched. Sheriff Wits Not "in at the .Death." The sheriff of the county was In this city at the lime the hanging occurred, ar./J it wa.s to him that the messenger rode in such hot haste. The men had been under the custody of Deputy Sheriff Tom Kelley, and they were taken from under his control by the mob and hanged to a beef windlass several hundred yards from, the jail,, where their bodies were swinging to the breeze all yesterday, the coroner not having yet arrived and no one else volunteering to cut them down. There were about forty men concerned in the lynching. They rode into Williamsport on horseback rate at night and tethered their horses a. short distance from the city that they might secure them again as speedily as necessary after the deed was done. The Jail in which the prisoners were confined is a substantial stone structure, and was irt charge of Deputy Sheriff Thoma* KeJley. The Waj- Watclimnn Kelley Was Fooled. Since the confinemnt of the prisoners therein ao great has been the fear that they might escape in some way that one man has watched all night within tha jail, and Friday night Kelley wag on watch. There was a meeting of the lodge of Woodmen in the building near the all, and as K«lley was a member he expected to meet some of the members of he lodge after the meeting adjournexL To while away the time during the night hours he was playing solitaire in front of the cells In which the murderers! wer» confined.
