Officials of the Miners' Organizations Satisfied with the Situation. Thev Claim That So Far More Than 128,000 Men Have Quit Work, and More Will Follow. FROM HEADQUARTERS. COI.UMHUS, O., April 23.—President John McUride, of tho United Mine- Workers, has watched the newspaper reports of the big coal miners' strike, which began at noon Saturday, very carefully aud made comparisons with the information received by him. Ho estimator tbe number on strike at 12S,- 100, us follows: Ohio,, PeniiMylnuilii ao.ouu ..2(5.000 Kentucky Illinois.^..... .. Imlliuia I.uou Missouri... 0,01X1 4,003 I.l'OO Wiwt VlrKlulii.... -.U0;j 8.UOU Indian Territory . 1,71X1 This estimate does not include Colorado, from which state coatvadictory report? 1 - have been received. A few days ag-o word v> as received from northern Colorado that the minors in that state would join the- strike. There are about 3,000 miners there. Since that time no definite information has been received. Strike 11 Completn Success. The Strike, so far as Ohio and 1'cnn- syivania are concerned, seems to have been a complete success. The results in Illinois also have been much more encouraging than was anticipated. President McBride's first estimate of the number of men who would suspend work in that state was 15,000 out of a total of 85,000, but his figures'show that there are fully 24,000 men out. In the northern section of Illinois he estimates that there are 10,000 miners out at. Spring Valley, La Salle, Oglesby, Peru, Streator, Braceville, Uraidwood, Coal City, Diamond, Gardner, Carbon Hill. At the Danville and Grape Creek mines there are also 800 men out President McBride has received additional information from State President J. A. Crawford of thu Illinois miners, who is also a member of the national' executive board, that fully 2,000 men in tbe Springfield district have quffl.-.vork. At Duqaoin and St. John there are also 1,000 idle men. Situation In Southern Illinois. The advices from the southern Illinois mining region are rather meager up to this time. P. 11. Penna, national vice president of the United Mine Workers, is at Pana, one of the largest mining centers in that section of the state, and the latest information from him was to the effect that a majority of tho men there had voted to strike. The coal miners of the Kclleville district, at a meeting at which the great strike in the coal-mining regions was fully discussed, determined not to strike. They also determined not to mine any coal to be used in filling contracts entered upon by operators whose employes are on strike. This action will insure coal for home industries and lor the St. Louis market. The miners at Decatur, 111., have decided not to join the strike at present. They do not belong to the union, but it is thought they will join if it becomes necessary to show their sympathy with the miners of Pana, Lincoln aud other districts, if the latter go out. The fifty miners employed at N'iantic, in Macon county, have, however, decided to quit work. The statement sent out from Knoxville, Term., that the Mingo miners had joined the strikers is a mistake. Of the 2,500 miners employed in that section few be-ong- to tliu union, and no trouble is expected, as it is not thought that the men will, join the strike. Tlie attention of the miners' leaders will be devoted largely to Illinois during the next few days and meetings will be addressed iu the vicinity of Streator by State President Crawford. President McBride is hopeful that by May i the strike will have spread over the entire state of Illinois. He claims that the operators there are now trying to make it appear that they had not expected to force a reduction of twenty cents on May 1, but that the notices posted by the operators refute their statements, Jr'lcht In Illinois and Wont Ylrclula. It now seems that Illinois and West Virginia will bo the battle ground in the competitive district. President McBride estimates that in West Virginia out of about 0,000 miners 2,000 hare suspended work. William Fahy, a inerabor of the national executive board, and Edmund Thomas are at work in;, that state and will address a lar(fe number of meetings this week. A dispatcht was received f rom the miners at Mouujdsville, W. Va,, stating that the miners had been offered the seventy-cent 'rule demanded, and asking whether they should accept it and return to work. President McBride wired them not to accept under any conditions until further advised. He says that this will be one of the greatest things to be overcome in the present strike, as no doubf in many places offers will be made to! pay the prices demanded and the miners will be inclined to acc«pt Oh Tuisday state conventions will be held in Both West Virginia and Illinois. Itisezpicted tbkt the action of the miner* t,t these meetings will largely th« fjitiin of the strike .In those states. President MeHriae believes that in West Virginia all of the miners except 1,000 at Winifred, where they have just passed through a long strike, can be broug-ht out. All Out 111 Ohio. In Onio there has not been a single report of a refusal on the part of the miners to join the movement. President Mcliridti says that so far as lie can determine there is only one place in Pennsylvania outside of the anthracite and coke regions when: the miners have not quit work and that is at Tuttle Creek, where about 1,500 men are employed. The press dispatches indicate that in western Pennsylvania 0,000 river miners and 0,000 railroad miners are idl«. President McBride says that this includes only the 1'itt^bur^h district proper, and that a large number of miners on the dividing line have struck, among whom are tiic Scott-Haven miners and those at lr\\in station. There are really about ]'J,OUO railroad miners in western Pennsylvania and about 0,000 river miners, all of whom, it is claimed, are idle. In the Laurel and New Pittsburgh regions, on tho Kentucky Central railroad in Kentucky, President McBrido claims iOOO miners have suspended work, and in the .lellico and Newcombe districts in Tennessee about thu same number. In the latter state this represents about all of t'nu free miners. Thu men there have to contend against the employment of about 4,000 convicts in the mines, who, o* course, oannot bo brought in.o the movement Strike Extend* to Iowa. Press dispatches from Iowa indicate that none of the miners there have struck, but President McBride has a telegram from Julius Froh stating that all the southern part of that state is out. There are about 3,000 miners in the section indicated. In Alabama president Mi-Bride says there are abont^-,000 miners idle, having quit work two weeks ago. There, as in Tennessee, they have to contend against the employment of convicts in the mines. Mr. Wilson, a member of the national executive board, i* in ^Maryland and has wired President McBride that ho addressed one of tbe largest; meetings ever held iu the state at Frostburg and that tho men there voted to suspend work. He will hold meetings at other, places in Maryland this week and President McBride expects that by May 1 all the miners in that state will be out. Preparing to Strike. CHICAGO, April 28.—May 1 tha 4,000 employes of the Pullman Palace Car company will go on strike. The trouble has been brewing ever since the workmen's wages were cutlaatyear, butthat reduction Is not the only grievance the men have. They complain bitterly of tbe high rent charged employes who live in tho company's houses, and say that if any of them take advantage of lower rentals outside the town they are punished by discharge. The company, it is said, is preparing for the strike. A brick and stone wall is being built to surround the lumberyards, carshops and works and is protected by a force of 100 watchmen. Only workmen are admitted unless a permit be obtained from some official. After working-hours everyone is excluded. May lie Arbitrated. MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., April 28.— There are good prospects that the Uveat Northern strike may be settled by arbitration. Gov. Nelson has made a proposal that the road and the strikers each appoint three members of a board of arbitration and these six name a seventh. The iludings of the board are to be accepted without question by both sides. President Hill has accepted the proposition for the railroad, and the men are considering. SLAIN BY SCORES.

Kipy, the largest distiller in the state, has assigned to the Fidelity Safety Vault company, of Louisville, aud C. G. Bond, of Lawi-enceburg-. Some four months ago Col. Ripy asked and was granted an extension by creditors, and it -was then believed that he could stem the imancial crisis. Threatened suits in Louisville induced him to assign. At the time the extension was requested a statement was made to his creditors showing- liabilities to tho amount of $750,000 and assets greatly iu excess of that sum. It is conndently believed that he will pay dollar for dollar and still have a comfortable estate left. Since the statement was made out for the creditors the liabilities have been reduced to $200,000.

LONDON*, April 24.—The latest newa from the earthquake-stricken district of Grcwce is contained in the following dispatch from Athens: The earthquake shocks that began at about 7::;o o'clock Friday ni(fht continued with more or less frequency. The death list will reach into the hundreds. All last nig-ht the oscillation of the earth was noticeable and tho people of this city were in a state of semi-panic. Telegraph communication with many parts of the country in badly interrupted amliit is almost impossible to pet news of the towns that must have been affected by the shocks. In three villages—.Malesina, Proskina and Martino, all in the province of Lo- cris—V2'J persons were killed. liorrur hi it Church. The mayor of Larymni telegraphs that a heavy shock occurred at Pro«- l»ina while vesper services were being held in the parish church. The walls of the church fell, burying all the worshipers in the ruins. Hardly a person in the church escaped without injury. Thirty were taken out dead, llouscs were thrown down in other parts of the village and the money lou is great Scores of the villagers an practically ruined. Whole Fanilllei KUIod. At Malesina houses tottered and fell as thoug-h built of cardboard. In this little villag-e sixty persons were killed. ID some cases entire families—fathers, mothers and children—were taken out of the ruins dead. At Martino thirty-nine persons wer« killed. Here, as at Proskina, the parish church was the scene of the great- cst,number of fatalities. In the vicinity of Athens the fatalities were less numerous, but the dun- ag-e to property is immense. The offi- c<» of the Austrian Lloyd-and other steamship companies were partially destroyed. The church of St Elian, on Castella hill, between the Pireaus and Phalcrum, has been racked beyond repair and is tottering to its falL Th« domes, walls and mosaics of the famous Byzantine church of Daphne arc very seriously damaged. King Starti on * Relief Kxpitdltton. King- George, in the royal yacht, has started for the maritime districts that have been devastated by the shock a, He was accompanied by the minister of interior and other officials and together they will decide upon the measures that must be taken to alleviate the distress among the people. The government will be compelled to adopt extraordinary measures to help the poor in the districts affected. Steps to this end have already been taken and the state authorities are giving quick responses to the calls that are bciug made upon them. The total number of deaths thus far reported is 1(50, but there is scarcely any question that this number will be augmented when the more remote village* are heard from. As this dispatch was being sent from Athens :i sharp shock was felt that for a time caused consternation in the telegraph om'ce. KlKlit VIIInc"' IJontroynd, A dispatch to the Times from Athens says that the earthquake destroyed eight villages in the district of Ata- lanti. In this district alone forty- eight persons \vei*i> killed and several hundred wore injured. The monasteries of S'j. Martino and Proskina were destroyed. The pier at 1'alli was rent asunder arid sunk below the waters of the harbor. Large bowlders were detached from theraountain of lirag-ana, aad some of them fell upon shepherds' houses that we're clustered at the foot of the mountains. All the inmates of the huts wer» crushed to death. Huge chasms opened in the earth about Atalauti. A large number of houses swung to and fro on their foundations for a time and then collapsed. Extremely violent shocks were ifelt throughout the ICuboea and the islands in the vicinity. The walls of a number of houses in Athens were cracked and partitions were thrown down. Heavy pieces of furniture were thrown in some instances almost across the room and pictures were ruined by being- thrown from their hangings. Nona of the ancient monuments except the Arch of Hadrian was injured. All tha schools in Athens have been closed. Another violent 1 shock occurred at Chaleis at noon Sunday, causing an immense amount of damage. A portion of the ceiling of the room in the palace occupied by the king's grandchildren was shaken down, but nobody was hurt This incident caused much excitement in the palace. , Congrc»man Rrown KclirveO.
