CONVENTION HALL INDIANAPOLIS INI) July When the convention met this morning it was evident that all probability or a strike had utterly vanished The anthracite men who have favored a strike were practically unanimous in declaring that it would have been unwise to order a general strike The Chances are that the convention will finish its work to-day and it will be ended by the adoption of the recommendations of President Mitchell with the exception of amendments in the manner of bringing the assessments upon the members of the union EARL CADOGAN Lord Lieutenancy May Be Offered to DuKe of

reconstruction reports The most interesting of these for America is the suggestion that the Duke of Marlborough will succeed Lord Curzon of Kedlaston as viceroy of India but there is not the least possibility of any such appointment It appears very doubtful if Lord Curzon will come home before the expiration of his term of office As a mat i vojGer last maul a U'l fra- singing i lOftnin- Ta rc-

they would he fighting themselves and not the administration This franchise matter is a business proposition in which all citizens are interested I have every reason to believe council will keep its

ACCIDENTS IN A COAL MINE MOTHER JONES At the opening of the convention this morning Jones was given the floor made an address which was enthusiastically applauded by the delegates She declared that coming to Indianapolis she had favored -a general strike but sirtee coming to the convention she had reached t'he opinion that the conclusion reached by the delegates to avo'd such a movement was the wisest course She urged the delegates to oppose at ittie congressional elections this fall every man who was favorable to by President Mitchell called tor the report of the special committee The

the special committee LO LIN IS Complications are still arising as a result of the arrest and trial of Andrew Williams the fish peddler on the charge of defrauding the old colored woman Rachel Anderson out of her horse It will be remembered that the court gave her a judgment for forty dollars damages two days ago and that Williams made his boast yesterday that he had sold the horse and had the money in his pocket Constable Morris of Justice court kept up his search for property in the hands of Williams and last night about 8 o'clock was successful lie found Williams as the Little Market in the lower part of the city with an old horse and a spring wagon in his possession The officer at once proceeded to levy on the rig Williams declared that the horse and wagon were not his and that the officer had no right to take it but this did not daunt the constable He took possession of the outfit and still has it in ids possession To-day father appeared at Justice office and claimed that the wagon is ins Another man appeared and claimed the harness and Mrs Williams wife of Andrew Williams put in a claim on the old horse father filed an action in court for the recovery of the wagon and the matter of the ownership of different parts of the rig will be fully investigated by the court before any of them are given up The officials believe that it is only a ruse to provent justice being done to the old colored woman The fact that a colored man of this city Mr Ernst Clark has been appointed to the position of a substitute mail carrier in the local postothee delivery system shows that the government and the local postotflee officials are giving the colored people an equal show with the whites in the matter of the distribution of offices The appointment of Mr Clark has just been made by the Postoffice Department at Washington on the recommendation of Postmaster Parvin and lie has assumed the duties of his position Never before has the opportunity presented itself in this manner for the recognition of the negro All these appointments are made through civil service regulations all applicants having to pnss an examination and must stand high in their percentage in order to be recognized when it comes to making appointments The two highest persons on the eligible list are certified to the appointing officer and lie then makes a choice of the one to be named All that the local postmaster can do is to recommend he cannot appoint Mr Clark stood high on the list of applicants and as a result he was named to a position If there were other colored persons high up on the eligible list appointments would come to them just the same It is not a matter In which the local officials have the determining influence but is governed by the civil service regulations As an evidence that the negro is taking rank with his white brother may be mentioned the fact that at the recent civil service examination in this city on June 11 for civil service positions out of fifteen applicants who successfully passed the examination a colored man of tills city stahcls the highest in percentage Ills name is Albert Cooper of 1217 Canal Street He is very likely to receive an appointment whenever any vacancy occurs in the position to which he is an William Cox is Killed and Three Other Men Injured To Prove Citizenship a Big Scheme Behind PICTURE CAUSES TROUBLE SUBMERGED
