What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Washington, Oct. 1.—-President Roosevelt will make an effort to bring the anthracite coal mine own. ers and their striking employes to- gether in the interest of the public good, This conclusion was reached after a series of conferences with his cabinet advisers today.. The jdecision was arrived at when the lawyers of the cabinet informed the- president that there was no way under the constitution and the form of goyernment of the United States for federal intervention to end the strike. the the determination to have the mine operators and Presieent Mitchell Every phase of situation was canvassed and meet the president was reached when it was found that no other At the conclu- sion of the conference today, whieh was attended ‘by Secretaries Root, Shaw and Moody, Attorney Gene- ral Knox and Postmaster General Payne method was open. at the temporary White house, the following, addressed to each one indivdually, and signed by the president, was sent to Geo. $ F.

I haye sent a similar dispatch to John Mitchell, president of ‘the United Mine W orkers of America.”’ A similar dispatch was sent to President Mitchell. At the meeting on Friday the line of approach toward the settle- ment of the strike will be an ap- peal by President Roosevelt to both sides to come together as men and not to allow false pride ora feeling of obstinacy to stand in the way of the termination of the great strike which is fraught with such threats of misery to thousands of people. It is stated by one of the president’s advisers that beyond this the president cannot go; he has no powers of ‘compulsion to bring into play against ¢ither side and must rely on his ‘persuasive abilities or his appeals to their sense of humanity if anything tan- gible is to be accomplished. _ The president intends to lay before his hearers the situation as it appears to him, with all the prospective horrors that will follow a fuel fam- ine;'and will urge them in the in- terests of humanity to open the mines and supply the demand for coal. The president has taken this action because he feels it as his duty to do so as the executive head of a nation threatened with great {| peril.” \He “has, in @'sense, taken upon himself the burdens of an arbitrator inthe great dispute be- tween capital and labor, and though the arbitration is not compulsory, is not even known by the natne of arbitration in any of the invitations ‘Hissned today, it is the hope of the president and his advisers that it will be effective. Just how, no one can say; though there is the suggestion ofa temporary arrange- ment which will tide over the cold weather. It is stated by a cabinet member that there is no political purpose in this effort, but that the president intends to exert his influ- ence solely in the interests of the people. There will be no one present at Friday’s meeting at the temporary : white house but the principals, as the regular cabinet niectiig sched- uled for that day will be postponed, The absence of the cabinet will give the president an opportunity to do just what he wants, nately, to have a heart to heart talk with the operators and Mr. Mitchell, to induce them to talk with -each other freely and soberly, and final- ly to agroe, if possible, to make concessions on each side which will terminate tlie strike. And at least, if this Iast object cannot be directly attained, it is hoped that the foundation may be laid for an agreement in the near future, per- haps an agreement between the principals to have further meet- ings and perhaps to refer open issues between them to third parties. It is stated positively that the president has no assurances from either side which formed the basis of his call for this meeting. But York yesterday he saw one at least. of the coal presidents whose name appears in to-day’s list of invitations. President Roosevelt's prepara- tions for a gathering here Friday morning of representatives of the coal companies and coal operators miners met a and prompt re- sponse from a number of the gentlemen to whom invitations were sent, During the afternoon and evening the president received replics te his invitations from President John Mitchell of the United Mine Workers of Ameri- ca; President George F. Baer of the Reading railway system and Mr. Baer’s reply to the president's suggestion one or two others. was particularly gratifying to Mr. Roosevelt, it was believed that in all probability his accept- ance will irféure favorable replies from other officials who were in- and vited. . Mr. Baer has acted as the spokesman for the operators in the various state- ments that have been put forth from time to time in reply to the miners’ representations, and it is realized that his influence will be a potent factor in any conference that may take place. The president is taking the keen- est interest in the coming gather- ing and expresses the'siticere hope that it will result in:steps that will bring about the cessation of ‘the strike. President. Cassatt of the Pennsylyania railway is among th invited to join in Friday’s conference. The president has the greatest respect for Mr. Cas- satt’s well-known business ability and good judginent, and is anxious that he should give the conference the benefit of his opinion. No re- ply has been received from him to- night, though it is-not doubted that he will attend. Witkesbarre, Pa.,Oct. 1.—If the broad ‘sinile which President Mitch- ell wore when he opened President to the white bouse conferenve at Washinton, Friday, was’any indi- ¢ation, he was highly delighted at the president's invitation, “Of course I shall accept Presi- dent Roosevelt's invitation, wheh Secrétary Root was-in New|: Roosevelt’s telegram inviting him’ » he: said. Ihave just sent a reply to the president’s telegram: T shall be in Washington early Friday morning.”’ Philadelphia, Oct. 1.—President George F. Baer of the Reading company will attend the coal con- ference at Washington Friday. In reply to a question he said: “I consider the president’s re- quest a command.”’ EQUAL RIGHTS. FOR WOMEN, This is a time of political emer- gencies in Montana. ~ The women ‘ef the state so recognize it and are | seeking in legitimate ways to win the right of the ballot for them- selyes. At the recent state con- vention of eqial suffragists in Butte there was much_ practical work accomplished and im- pression made upon the reading public of Montang that the women who are most interested in this movement in the stato are not only women of education, ability and intelligence, but women who love their homes, their husbands and children above all things. It is be- cause of this great love that the women of Montana are working earnestly-to better the conditions surrounding home life. ‘ The woman who desires the best for husband and children is the woman who takes an interest in something besides frying bacon, boiling potatoes and mending clothes. She takes these as a part of home making, but recognizes the fact that there is a world into which her husband goes each day, into which her children must pasa as they leave the -hearthstone of the home, and into which the sons and danghters of every other mother must pass, This is why the mother of today realizes that to keep apace with husband and children she must know something of that world into which each must go and be a part thereof, so she is learning a little of rts affairs. Oth | erwise the day is fast approaching when she. would be laid upon the family shelf as ohe whose opinions ‘are old-fashioned and out of date.” In other words she would be rele- gated to the rear in the home life. The personnel of those in at- tendance was all that any husband or child could wish—nay, be proud of. Ina convention of this kind there is no such thing as class. Side by side sat women who worked with their hands and women who worked with their brains, those who had only a fair share of school- ing and those who had drunk deep- ly of college lore. All worked and planned for better conditions for the men and the women of today and for the men and women of the days to follow. No bitterness, no blame, no censure, because of mis- takes of the past made by the law- makers in the days gone by. In tho new light that has fallen on the mind of woman she knows that men have aéted as they considered best’ “for all, and that in the onward sweep of prog- ress men will more awd more rec- ognize the truth that whatever goes to assist woman toward higher planes of civilization will just as truly help man. There is no sex in government. The Jaw falls alike on all, Among the addresses delivered at the convention was one on ‘“The New Parenthood,” by Mrs, Green Majors—an ideal mother and wife as well-as.a woman of intellectual attainments; alBo one by Mrs. Margaret Cunningham on the sub- ject of “Juvenile Courts.” “This woman is widely known through- out the state as a model mother in in her own lyme, and as one inter- ested inthe children of all mothers. | Hers was a plea for the children who, ‘“‘whether from mistaken in- dulgence on the part of the parents, from corrupting environment, or from being left-without home and guardianship of parents, it is true that aJarge number of boys and girls are growing up ina school of vice and idleness.” These are the ones who go to make up the crim- inal class of - this country, who cost the state untold thousatids of dol- lars each year through the criminal courts, yet who can be saved to good citizenship while yet éhildren through proper guardianship. As shown by Mrs. Cunningham, new environment, new methods, will do much to prevent the increase of crime and to make good men and women of these unfortunate little ones. In the east, where progres- sive women have taken up this work of the juvenile courts, the decrease of child orime 18 enor- mous. Two years ago 1000 chil- dren were arrested and tried in the criminal courts of. Philadelphia, while last year. there were only fifty. Another: practical address was that of the Rey. Lewis J. Duncan, a prominent minister in Butte,who took for his subject, *‘Women -in City Government,”? and made a splendid showing for the cities where women are taking an antive| ientrest in municipal affairs, es- pecially in the departments of san- itation, schools.and police. One of the addresses that aroused the most enthusiasm was that of Mrs. Clarence A. Smith (nee Hughes) whose subject went to the heart of things, ‘‘The Ballot in the Hand of the Woman Breadwinner.”’ At the close of her address Mrs. Smith exclaimed, ‘Never has woman raised her hand against Jaw, custom, tradition but in the name of humanity; and today the countless thousands who are work- ing for the ‘rights’ of women are working for the rights of the countless millions who are to fol- low—for all humanity. x The woman problem in all: its phases has come -to stay. ~ It is a! part of the great evolvtionary plan of the universe anda part of per- fect government that is to be. Nothing can permanently defeat it. All progress has for its motive power the love of personal liberty. All men have fought for it, oft times unconsciously down through the ages, and now that they are gaining it in a greater degree than ever before they are reaching out their hands to help the women of their race, the women who have ever been their-aid in all that goes to make life endurable and really worth the living. O’ Nei. | Orezon's First Governor Dead. Ex-Governor John Whiteaker, died at his home in Eugene, Ore- gon, on the 2nd inst., aged 82 yrs. He was the first governor clected for the state.
