WashiUfetvn, Oct. 16.—The anthra cite coal strike Is not yet practically &et4:]ed, but some progress has be^ii made, aafid while there remain certain obstacles to be removed these, in the language of Secretary Root, it is be ileved tan be removed and a termination of the strike finally secured. The principal of these obstacles is the com-position, of the proposed commission to arl)itrato the differences between the minors and operators.  Mr. Mitchell indicated formally to President Roosevelt that the Mine Workers' union dissents from the^ re striction placed by the operators on the choice of the proposed arbitration ,trib^al and de..;ires the president to have an absolutely free hand in the selection of members of the commission to be-<sharged with an adjustment of futu;j?e: relations between the employers,.and employed.  He iaid'special stress In stating hiss objections on the proposition that one of the commission should be a judge from the Eastern district of Pennsylvania. He was verj- insiistent in some of his objections which he voiced in what might be termed a counter proposition to that of the operators.  After the president and the head of the miners' union had exchanged views freely and gone over this counter proposition of Mr. Mitchell's a call was sent out by President Mitchell for a joint meetinii today of the executive boards of the Mine Workers' union for the three anthracite districts of Pennsylvania.  At this meeting it is believed an agreemont will he reached on a statement to bo officially promulgated by j the miners' union in response to the I proposition from the ope)'ators.  Effort to Reconcile Differences. '  President Rcxjsevelt, having ascer-] tained liio views of Air. .Viitchell, at j once caumuinicated with the operaxoii aud luuiaied eflorts to rix'uncile the differenced developed and to have the operaturs make some further conces-tiious, liib aim being to reach a ooni mon accord between miners and operator» whcM'cby the labor dispute may by finally sl'tiled and niiuing of coal resumed.  At the conclusion of th(> conifrencc Mr. Mitchell .said that he nad no iv.-iorniaiiim winch he could give to th'. publi<_'.

He was imtae-diately congratulàted, hut he said:  "Your coogi'atulations should he withheld utitil wê see who the sixth representative on the commission îô. I understood before I left Washington that Uiére wcmld lié a sixth man and that he wirnM i:epr^nt labor. The whole matter wjli hé placed before the Joint meeting of the three executive Sèi-oTWÏTô^^ ^^ of tha^thracite-reiaou.^ their.  tors, took exception to the «disparagement of the minets' union and to the limitation of the time in whlchi under tiie prised a^eement, there is tobe no strike. His particular ohjectioaij however, was to the insistence of the Siln© owners that they should bo permitted to designite thö. classeä from which the arbitrators should be drawn by the president.  It is understood tiiat he took a firm eland against this proposition, saying he wa.i satisfied the miners Would nol submit to any arbitration which would not be arbitration in fact as well as in name.  He urged 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 expressed hin^self as being as anxious as evei ■arbitration, but planted himsell '■¡y on the proposition that the -.dent should be allowed to name the arbitrators without any restric-tions or limitations made either by the aniners or by the mine owiers.  It % understood also that the word-hig of the mine operators' proposition omitting any reference to the miners' union, does not meet Mr. Mitchell's approval. He desiroe. if possible, to obtain some formal recognition of the union, although that Is a technicality which he may waive subsequently, as by an agreement to arbitrate the controversy the miners will get a general recognition of their organization. Mr. -Mitchell also expres,sly opposed the restriction made in the operators' proposition limiting the selection of a federal ju.ige as crae of the arbitrators to a paTticuIa,r Jur-isdictfon.  It was state;: on excellent authority, although net the president or Mr. Mitchell, that President Roosevelt agreed to present Mr. Mitcheir.s contention to the operator?!. It is belipved that this-will be t.hp n^xt sti>p taken.  Mr. Mitchell assured the president of his anxiety to end the strike, but said tliat the miners we:re firm in their po-j sition and that he could not afford to i sanction any impevs^tion that would ; .saxiriflce their interosts at this time, i He was willins;, however, to overlook i minor objections and indicated his intention to demand only an arbitration I board which should bo self^cted fairly i (With respect equally to ihc interests j of both parties t o thp cdiit r<)\ crsv While the l(K3iiiis' aiüon.i: those who ; are familiar with tlie position taken by Mr. Mitchell is not rich in optimism, ' it Is believed generally that the dif-When the last conference had been i f^rences existing between the miners  MR. mm NOItFIED.

In reply to the questiofa if he would comply with the president's request that coal mining be resumed Immediately he said he would, make a more definite answer when he Icnew more about the matter.  After his Interview, with the report ers at the hotel lobby Mr. Mitchell went to his office on the second floor, where he was closeted with Mr. Wilson. While there a press representative again went to him for further eu-lightment on the situation regarding immediate resumption and he mode the positive statement that a delegate convention must first pass upon the question of calling off the strike. From the time of the calling of the convention to Its adjournment is only a matter of three or four days.  There is hardly any doubt that a convention will Stand by any agree ment he has male to President Roose velt.  CHARLES N. BULGER t>RE3ENT.  Mr. Coler Says He Stand» Upon . the Platform, But Thinks State Regulations of Coal Mines Is Preferable to Federal Ownership—Position on the Canals.' •  New York, Oct? IC.—Bird S. Coler last night was notified officially of his nomlnaticm by the Democratic state convention for governor of New York. The ceremony took place at  '<ivitti Democrats of prominence from various parts of the state.  Former United States Senator David B. Hin, John B. Stanchileld and Robert B. Dowling, president of the Tilden club, aceumiiaiilBd Mr. Colcr to the club. Later Charles N. Bulger, the Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor, joined the party.  The speech of notliication was made by Mr. Stanchfield, who said among other things: "Eight years of Republican supremacy has brought us to the present condition or popular discontent, unequillled in the history of the Republic." Mr. Stanchfield proceeded to eulogize Mr. Coler for the ability he had shown as comptroller of New York City, and declared that his rec-'ord In that office was a guaranty that if he becomes governor that office will be administered honestly, capably and for the benefit of the people.  After formally accepting the nomination, Mr. Coler said In part: Stands on Platform. "The platform adopted by the Democratic convention at Saratoga has had my careful consideration and I stand  son and' the Gr&A Lakes.

It is said that while it may take a few days to bring them to^ttther the belief is universal that the negotiations now pending will terminate the strike.  The events of the day leading up to the present .situation were entirely devoid of sensations or of dramatic incidents.
