The 'officials of the Scottish Miners' Union received telegraphic Instructions from London today to make arrangements for having the striking miners return to work March 30.' POLICE HAVE TROUBLE. Many non-union miners have resumed work In the Scottish coat fields. The police are having serious trouble In protecting them. Pesplte a growing ' dealra In the British coal fields to see a settlement, fresh trouble was threatened today In the notification to tha labor party In the House of Commons that tin-less the) minimum wage bill also provided a fixed minimum wage for the furnace men the dispute would not be settled. An abnormal exodus of steamers from British ports for America Is taking place. The j?wners hope to obtain cargoes of American coal for the Mediterranean. James Henry Thomas, the labor member of parliament for Derby and organizing secretary of the Amalgamated Society of Railway Servants, confirms th report that the railroadmen Intend to submit a new national program to' the railroad companies early In May. He would not commit himself as to whether the men Intended to strlke'lf their demands were rejected. .,t The decline In railroad traffic receipts last week amounted to 12,-855,000 as compared with the same week last year. The steamer Kaiser Wllhelm der Grosse took the mall for the United States and Canada, owing to the suspension of the sailings of the vessels of the American line. TO RESUME WORK MONDAY. Preparations are already being made In most of the Yorkshire collieries for a resumption of work Monday. Some of the men are anxious to resume today, as the distress among them has become acute, but they have -been prevailed upon to await the passage of the minimum wage bill, i The miners' federation, after a long consideration of the . text of. the bill, resolved that no act which does not contain a minimum wage of five shillings a day for each man and two shillings a day for each woman would ba. acceptable. The delegates also called on the members of the labor party In the House of Commons to amend the bill to include the miners' schedule, of rates. ,, It Is unlikelythat tha government will accept tlie amendment, but possibly a compromise may be agreed upon by which the Insertion of the five and two-shilling minimum shall be made. GENERAL- STRIKE FEARED. CLEVELAND, O., March 20. A difference of 20 cents a ton In the wage sought an that offered confronts a joint conference of mine operators and miners here today. The mine workers want $1.05 a ton for coal they get out, while the operators 'meet them with a counter proposal i that the payment be only 85 cents, which Is 10 cents less than the miners receive under the agreement 'that expires March Zl. Sixty-four men thirty-two operators and thirty-two mine workers representing the bituminous , eoal fields of Pennsylvania. . Ohio, Indiana j and Illinois, are delegates o the con- ference.. They came to" reach an 1 agreement, if possible, but both sides i appear determined not to yield upon the major points Involved. A long suspension ef work, beginning April 1, If not a general strike is regarded as Inevitable. Announcement was made for the operators last evening after they )vad Conferred that they were unanimously agreed to stand by their demand of a I 10-rent reduction ' Easy Way to Preserve Natural .

He has resided hcre-erer aihee. When he retires from the bench next January ha will have served twenty-fonr years. "It has been said that Judges and politicians never resign and seldom die," said the retiring Jurist, "but I hope to prove an exception tu the julc Jnone particular at least. I have had long and active service. My career on the bench has been an -enjoyable one to me. While I have been urged to be a candidate again, I have felt for some time that I should lay down active work and I expect to devote my time in the near future to less exacting duties than those which befall a superior Judge." HOST OF FRIENDS. Judge Ellsworth, during his many years on. the superior bench, has made a host of rlends. He has always retained the highest respect of the legal fraternity and his decisions have been noted for their- f alrnese and the deliberation which he gave them, Ills retire-ment came as a surprise to the public in general, as few had any Intimation that he would not sconslder another term in office When court adjourned in the criminal department shortly after noon today Judge Ellsworth called representatives of the newspapers Into his chambers and made a formal announcement that he would retire. The news spread rapidly among the various offlees at the court house and Immediately there were suggestions made as to a possible successor. District Attorney W.' II. Donahue was named, and when asked as to his Intentions he said: "Every member of the bar has the greatest admiration and respect for the integrity and sterling ability of Hon. John Ellsworth as a citizen and as a jurist. I regret his derision to retire, for if he were a candidate under no circumstances would I oppose him. But, Inasmuch, as he has decided not to seek re-election I have been urged to become a candidate. "As district attorney I have, for four years, given to tha people of Alameda county the very best that was In me, and now, under the new law. Inasmuch as the nomination and election of judges of the superior court "Is non-partisan and non-polltlcal, I can -see In the office of superior Judge an opportunity to do much good and to be of greater service 'to the people." Police- Judge George Samtiels also confessed this afternoon that he would be a candidate for a superior Judgeship. Superior Judge F. B. Ogden's-six-year term also expires at the same time as that of Judge Ellsworth and Judge Samuels says that he will endeavor to fill one of the vacancies.

L. llynes, assistant district attorney, has been mentioned as a candidate to succeed W II. Donahue In the event of the istter's succeeding toJhe superior Judgeship left vacant, by nhe retirement of Judge Ellsworth. Judge Ellsworth today did not hesitate to say that he felt that the new provision In tha slate law referring to tht recall "ot superior Judges was a vi cious clause.
