I resident Mitchell of tie mine workers Union went to Washington from Wilkes Barre yesterday morning arriving at the National capital at 11 35. He immediately went to the temporary White House to Confer with president Roosevelt. As he stepped into the presidents rooms speaker Henderson was just leaving and the two men were introduced by the president. After an hours talk with the president and commissioner of labor Carroll d. Wrighton. Mitchell left the White House. He would say nothing further excepting that to expected to return at 3 of clock to resume the discussion of the operators proposition. From the White House he wont to Call on Frank p. Sargent commissioner of immigration who was formerly chief executive officer of the brotherhood of locomotive firemen. It is believed in Washington that the reports trom the Coal Region to the effect that the miners Are dissatisfied with the arbitration plan proposed by the operators because of their suggestions As to the commission Are based upon a misapprehension by the miners As to the situation. The plan of arbitration was not made Public monday night until after a most exhaustive examination of its terms by president Roosevelt and Secretary of War Root. It was stated at Washington that the president does not himself consider that limitations have been placed up 011 him because there is a very wide Field from which he can make his Choice. The classification a a sociologist eur Ables him to put a representative of labor 011 the commission. The president considers himself trustee for both sides in the Contro Ersary.

President Mitchell has a personal acquaintance with or. Wright of Long standing and has a High opinion both As to his ability and impartiality. Information from the Coal Region last night was that despite the Adverse sentiment generally expressed it is believed that president Roosevelt will find a Way to secure an acceptance of the operators proposition. It is thought that the strike is about an at end hut the miners Are yet firm in their determination to stand by president Mitchell no matter what course he takes in the matter. The strikers feel certain that he will do Only what is Best under the circumstances. Tickets that they decide at once As to the number required so As to avoid the necessity of a return trip. Only seven Hundred reserved seats will be on Sale which embraces the entire lower floor of Trio opera hons. Dollar tickets will not admit to the lower floor. It. Is the desire of the committee that everybody shall have an equal Chance for a reserved seat ticket and it is suggested that if for any reason the canvasser fails to Call that tickets he purchased at once at either Hunts drugstore Oronea Shook store the y. M. C. A., or w. V. Oglesby Sofeico. This suggestion is made for the reason that there is a demand for tickets and unless patrons of Trio course heed this advice they May be unable to secure reserved seats. The reserved seat Hoard will open at the opera House 011 Friday morning november 14, at 8 of clock. The entertainments Are the finest Ever brought to Danville and when this fact is considered together with the time and trouble of securing and arranging Talent and dates for tie entertainments. The Price of the tickets is exceedingly Low. Single admission for Brookes band is 75 and 50 cents alone. In the five entertainments forty four persons will appear before the people for Ledr pleasure. Brookes Marine band and orchestra 1 will have thirty musicians and miss j Lillian Reed As Soprano soloist and or. Bert Brown As Cornet soloist. Then comes Hon. Charles b. Landis congressman and lecturer. Next is the Mendelssohn male Quartetti with Marguerite Smith child Impersonator and Helen Faye Soprano soloist. After the Quartetti comes Hon. J.

Price pianist and accompanist miss Bertha Webb violinist Little Phil the miniature comedian Richard the famous Hoy Soprano and Edward Foy contralto. That the above Talent is appreciated is evident from the patronage of the Public and the committee urgently advises the Early Purchase of reserved seats. Do not wait until All the tick a ets for the lower floor Are disposed of is.
