whole amounting to 558 miles with 000 capital for which the government has offered a somewhat larger sum The effect of the announcement on the boerse was to raise the quotationsof some of the common stocks and to de press others But the preferred stocks rose within a fraction of the governments offer It seems certain that the propositions will be accepted in every instance Only two important private lines are not included in the government scheme DorttmmdGrenau and the LuebeekBuesnen roads The govern ment plan which came as a complete surprise to the country is one of the first energetic steps of the new rail road minister Herr Budde who is credited with the ambition to inau gurate a new era in Prussian rail roads HE WANTED REAL WAR So He Kan Away from His Military Acad emy and Went

The coal has been selling for S450 a ton in Indianapo lis It will now be put above Washington Oct prolonged anthracite coal strike is not yet prac tically settled but some progress was made yesterday and while there re main certain obstacles to be removed these in the language of Secretary Root it is believed can be resolved and a termination of the strike finally secured The principal of these ob stacles is tlKVccmposition of the pro posed commission or board to arbi trate the differences between the min ers and operators Mitchell indicated formally yesterday to President Roose velt that the mine workers union dis sents from the restrictions placed by the operators on the choice of the proposed arbitration tribunal and de sires the president to have an abso lutely free hand in the selection of members of the commission to be charged with an adjustment of future relations between the employers and employed OIicial Kvspcrase to the Proposition special stress in stating hi

President Mitchell for a join meeting today of the executive boards of the mine workers union for Hi three anthracite districts of Penusyl vania At this meeting it is believec an agreement will be reached on statement to be officially promulgated by the miners union in response to the proposition from the operators Will Now Tackle the Operators President Roosevelt having ascer tained theviews of Mitchell at once communicated with the operators and initiated efforts to reconcile the differ ences developed and to have the opera tors make some further concessions At the conclusion of the conference Mitchell said he had no information which he could give to the public It was announced likewise at the temp orary White House that no official statement of the conferences would be rnnde at this time When the last con ference had been concluded Mitchell left the White House and after a brief conference with President Gompers and some other local labor leaders departed for Wflkesbarre Pa Mitch ells visit to Washington was by in vitation of President Roosevelt that Mitchell in criticism of the propo sition of the operators took exception to the disparagement of the miners union and to the limitation of the time in which under the proposed agree ment there is to be no Is three years His particular objection however was to the insistence of the mine own ers that they should be permitted to designate the classes from which the arbitrators should be drawn by the president It is understood that he took a firm stand against this propo sition saying he was satisfied the min ers would not submit to any arbitra tion which would not be arbitration in fact as well as in that this would not be the case if one side to the controversy were afforded the advantage of naming the classes from which the arbitrators were to be appointed He plants himself squarely on his own proposition that the presi dent should be allowed to name the arbitrators without any restrictions or limitations made either by the miners or by the mine owners PRESIDENT KKKPS AT WORK Supposed To Bt Otto Matthen Prescott A T Oct man who answers perfectly the description of Otto Matthes wanted at
