Presidents Roosevelt and Mitchell  -And the Mine Operators at Washington���At the Conference  the Presidents Bore Insult and Abuse Unequalled in  History from the Great Corporation Bosses  Who Were Arrogant and Digust-  ing���Miners'  Demands.  The   attempt    ot President Roosevelt I ing  thcir grips  in   thcir  hands.      Thoy  last Friday ut Washington, D. C, to  Shring about a settlement of tho grent  IPennsylvannia coal strike by\ means of  axoral sausibn has failed, thunks to the  stubbornness and minor of tlie man-  icgers of tho great corporations. ? Hut  ithis is1 not tha and. rrcsident Roosc-  ,-vclt is now preparing to try something  imoro drastic and practical. In sonic  Manner tho power of the government is  ���to bp invoked by him. Precisely what  method will bo adopted hasrnot as yet  Jbe'cn ."determined.  President Roosevelt is himself thoroughly disgusted with the action anil  .spirit of tho representatives of the corporations, and equally well pleased with  ���the moderation and conciliatory tactics  *if President Mitchell of tho miners' un-  iSon. ,  What; Happened.  In sum and substance this is what  ,-:happcned at tho conference:  1. President Roosovclt road to the  conference lus appeal for peace in behalf  ��t tho public.  2.'President Mitchell on' behalf of tho  .miners responded with a proposal that  thc men would go back to work at onco  ��nd leave the question of new wages to  .President Roosevelt and a commission  to bo appointed by Imn, asking only  _ that tlie representatives of tlio mining  corporations also bind themselves to accept the verdict.  3. This wns scornfully rejected by all  tho corporation managers, each of whom'  i,  tlcclurcd that he would havo nothing to  <lo with any proposition emanating frofu  John Mitchell  or tho miners' union.  4. Tiio only semblance of a proposition made by the lailway presidents  ,-wus that tho miners first return - to  work and then us individuals, not, as  an organization, piesent ) their' 'grievances to the nuno bosses. If the mlnu  bosses could not neljust' thein then the  companies woulel agree to huve them referred tp the judges of the common  plcus courts. Hut in no case was thetc  to be any business dealings with the  .-union. . _    ... -   -  5. Then tho railway presidents made  a. violent pcrsonul attuck upon Picsieli'iit  Mitchell and the Mine Workers' Union,  charging them with complicity in disoi-  ��Icr,;and .murder"in ;tlio coal region.  0. Tho railway presidents also turned  ��n President Roosevelt' and-:' demanded  f)I him that lip send federal troops to  thc unthruule field, couching their demand in language which President  Roosevelt himself lescntcd as liupcrti-  "jieut and offensive.  Nothing More Dramatic  ' than  last  Friday's    conference    can  be  > found,-, in','tho     annals   of   the   United  1    States.    The" foregoing concise and matter-of-fact; statement   of  tlio  proceedings  gives but faint hint of'tho drama which  '���' was. enacted in the scconeKstorey front-  room of the  tempoiary     White    House.  ���Thc-procecelings-of- tho-conference,- dispatches say,   was   us  thrilling  as .   any  novel.    Even  tho verbatim report, taken  by  Mr.   Ilurncs,   tho   president's   stanog-  j-nphcr, fails to give tlio play of passion  and  pride,    malice  ; and ,vliidictivonoss,  loiuposuru  ami     self-control    amounting  almost ��� to  moral  heroism  which  is one  or another factors. -which > marked ' the  proceedings.:   The  sequel  proves      that  John   Mitchell,   tho   110-year-old  Illinois  . miner boy, uneducated, poor   and hum-  lilc,  was  moro  than a match  as gentle-  siiuir or  as   leader   or   as   strategist) for  anyono of his povverlul  antagonists,  llo  outshone  them  all  in  all  respects,   and  -. .won  tho: plaudits  of: overy  public  man  .-who  attended   the  conference     or    who  - TKoa informed .of. the details of, tlio session.   , President Itoosovclt  wus  himself  jlelfghtcd at tho actions of Mitchell.  They   Arrive,  Tho railway presidents wont to Washington   in    a gorgeous     special    tram,  Whilo thero  they lived  in private cars.  TThey drovo     to and    from    tho   Whito  Houso in carriages.  John Mitchell and his lloutenants arrived ln tho smoking car of a night  train. They walked down Pennsylvania  javenuo to a cheap but tidy hotel carry-  rode to  tho Whito House in the 'street  cars.  But when tho truo test of manhood,  of patriotism and of faithful- discharge  of their trusteeship came on in tlio presence of the president and all tho people  of the -United..States, it .was: the man  of tho pick and shovel,- not tho hlgh-  .salaried', corporation manager,' wlio : carried away tho honors.  Beforo tho : President,  In tho first placo Mr. Mitcholl placed  immediately beforo tho president his  simple;, plain, unconditional' proposal for  arbitration. He responded to the president's appeal for uction with'u pioposull  to uct., ,lf the coal famine must bo re-  liovcel ho. offered; tho means of-relieving  it.  Witiiout making charges against his  antagonists, without any attempt to  confuso tho issue, but driving straight  to/tlie1 heart: of tho question, in . which  thoTpooplo aro1 so , vitally interested, he  offered arbitration.  The icply of tho railway presidents  to this proposal of fair and amicable  .settlement was a scornful rejection, a  refusal -to have anything to: do with the  man who Otlcicel it, personal abuse of  him, and a counter-proposition whicli  President Roosevelt declined seriously  to entertain because manifestly it was  not offered in good faith, but as a device to confuse thc situation and render  the .conference abortive.  Piesident Roosevelt and c\cry one of  his advisers thinks this proposition of  thu. miners nu eminently fair ono. Thoy  all-think it a proposition which should  have been accepted. They-havo no hesitation in saying that the onus of lc-  fusal, of failure to take a singlo step  toward pcaco when an honorablo peace  vvas proffcicd, must "rest upon thc heads  of   tho  railwav   picsidciits. "  Ariogant an'd Pisgustitig. ,  One of the picsielent's advisers, who  wns present dining thc conference, said.  "Morc^ama^ing effrontery I have never  seen come from mortal man. The railway managers wero arrogant and dis-  gusting. vMoro than once I feared tliat  President Roosevelt would losoihis temper and give them tho reproof they well  merited. But ho kept himself admn-  ably in hand, despite tlie great pravo  cation. The most marvelous display of  self-control I havo/ovor: seen was'that of  President Mitchell. Ho bore insult and  abuso without a-word of angry response. Dis black eyes flashed fire, but  ho boro tho ordeal as became the occasion and a gentleman. Tha contrust  between him and his opponents was  most strikmg. Ho won the admiration  of eveiy one us a man of poiso and balance." v  Miners': Demands.  , Piesident   Mitchell   made   a   statement  for publication  at  tho beginning of the  week-in .which ho reiterated:  "Since the very inception of tho strike  Qf truth than the usscrtlon of tlie operators that the Mlno Workers' union Is  a lawless : organization. During tlio  past twenty weeks tlie whole power of  tho union has been exerted to preserve  tho peace among a voluntarily idle population of threo quarters of a million,  and it is a tribute to tho activity of  our oillcers and tho loyalty and soll-  rcstrulnt of our members that wc have  boon liioro successful In allaying violence  thun thocoulund iron polico iii: inciting  It.

"Reverting to the demands of the  miners for incieased wages and improved environments, Mr.'Buor claims  that he cannot possibly pay an increase  in wages that would amount to 10 ui 15  tents per ton to the mineis, but lu- nud  thc allied presidents admit tliat they  cnu nfToiel to sacrifice, tcnipoiunlv, a  large market anil lose millions oi clol-  lats inlher than pay this increase. Nevertheless, without advancing the uniieis'  wages one cent; the operators iliil raise  tho-markot prico last year from thirty  to fifty cents per ton, and at tho pies-  HOW SHOULD WE TAX?  (lly W. A. Douglas, II. A., for The, Independent.) ,  It Ih a marvelous thing how long it  taken the public to become acquainted  with certain simple economic truths.

Is it not as cleur as uny-  thlng In this world can bo clear, tliat  tho vuluo of the lund is duo to the  presence of tho community?  This distinction betw eon the vuluo duo  to tlio indlviduul and tlio vuluo duo to  the piusoncc of the community is ono of  tliu most impbrtunt in our social relationships, but it ls one tlmt tho legislatures of the diirorent nations have so  fur failed to  recognize.  Tha question of tmiisccudent impoil-  unca ut tlie present dny is the pioper  ownership of theso two values.; To  whom should belong thu value of the  goods und lo whom bhould belong the  value ot tlio land/ Tho question looks  veiy simple and aiound that queiy  theio is likely to be ono of the most intense discussions tlie woild has evor  seen. ; Should vvo allovv thb valuo of the  land to bo appropriated by individuals  us it has in tlio past? If wo do, what  must be the consequences? A iiundred  years ugo John Jacob Astor could ex-  toit fiom the occupants somewhere  about live dollars per acre. With every  niciense of the population he could demand moie until today he can collect  not less than fifty thousand dollars per  acie yearly.

With leguid to the proposed act for  llie siittleuieiit of iiiilwny disputes; your  committee, while in favoi of the piui-  ciple of  CoinpuJsoiy   Arbitiution,  beg to report unfuvoiubly for the lot-  lowing reusons. Pnst���The net is a  purtiul one, as it deals only with lud-  roatls anel ignores othei inelustries. In  oui opinion legislation of this nature  sliould be geneial. Sccoiiil���'l'hu act does  not rceogui/e the labor oigain/ations of  llie various classes of ruihoud employees, not provides ior their icgistiulinn,  but .deals merely with individuals. This  is in our opinion, a most seuous ub-  Je'ctiou, us in the opi'iatiou of llie act  it would work scnous injury to those  oiguni/atioiis which have in the past  been so successful in ])i onioting and  maintaining haimonious iclations between companies and then employees.  Thud���While  Penalizing a Company  in declaring a lockout, there is no provision lor eloaling vvith companies who  nny dischaige their employees on otlier  pietexts than tliat of a dispute in legend to'tonus of einploynieiit. Fourths,  We arc of the opinion that clauses i,  uud T of the act should be sti uek out  (A) Itecuuso taking into consideration  their icspcclivc finuiicml standing, the  fine indicted on the companies is small  in cuuipiuison vvith that inflicted on tho  employees, (b) becuuse while tlieie is no  possibility of knowing of anyone inciting a railway compaiiy to lock out us  employees, or little probability of anyone committing such mi act, the clause  relating to persons inciting 'employees  could be used to  llaruss Those Officials  of labor unions enguged in pcrfoiniing  their lawful duties. Fifth���We object to  clause 01. allowing privacy of proceedings. In every case they should be public Sivlh���We object to palls ol  clauses Itl and 18, which, in the event  of the faduic of the elected arbitrators  to agice upon a chairman,' provides for  the uppoinlitient oi such chairman by  the gov,*rn,oi-in-couiicil. In all pioli-  alnlity somu sycophantic pubticul luvoi-  ltc or nominee of the railway coiiipany  vvouid be the appointee. We suggest the  chief justice ns thiiii-inun of tlie dominion board and judges of the supreme  court us chairmen of tho provincial  bourels. Seventh���We object to subclause "F" of clause 52, granting the  minister of labor  Power to Fix Fees.  In our opinion fees sliould be fixed and  inserted in the act. l.ight���In conclusion we lecoiiimend the opposition of  the union to the act as it stands. An  act that vve vvoultl suppoit should us  least have tlio feature of the New Zealand act. which deals only with labor  that is orguni/eel and through icsponsi-  ble officials of labor unions, and thus,  as the act expressly states, encourages;  instead of menaces, the formation of  labor unions.

Tho Pope's Successor.  Of all tho crazy stuff that finds its  way into the newspapers by way of  wire or pen or scissors, the criuicst is  tiio recunent item to the clicct that  Tope  tco  Xllt.   has   chosen   his  succes-  ,ll   1'llllw, , 1   ,  sf)r, .,11.1s named hint in his will, etL  Pope Leo XIII. 'cliti' no menu choose his  successor than Mayor ��� Ueelunels can  choose hib successor t'o' 'lli'u mayoralty  The successor to the pope will be named  in a conclave, and that conclave may  nnino tho man m half an houi 01 it  may tako up a niontli in ihiiiig so, just  as a deadlock may occur in un clcitoi'nl  district in this countiy. It might be  tliat the man tho pope most loved of  all about hun should bo Lhosen, but it  vvouid not bo on account, of the pope's  regurd. The conclave "may meet aftei  Leo's, death withi,two cundidntcij for  !ious|{$ji'ution, I or ,-iv ith twenty. They  )Vj|J not bo,j;pveined 111 thou choice by  Zinythilig.Lifp'xiII may lmve said on  tho subject. The Roman Conclave is  not "bussed" by a pope when he is  elcnd. Theio is no inuillibility attacli-  .ng to a dead man, however holy When  the pope elies there is no pope to dictate anj thing The fact 01 tlio mattci  is that tho election of a pope is a matter dctei mined by u multitude of coo-  siilcialionb, leaving out of the c|ucstie>u  tho accepted belief of Catholics that tlie  selection is inspned from on high, and  theso considerations icacli out into all  the ramifications "of intei national polity  and into the conditions of the' chinch  111 eveiy land under the sun. The cni-  dinalb woik just aa hard for then* individual choice as men work for then  caiiilidatcs 111 our local elections, but  they have the good sense, inbred by  ages 01 evpeuence, not to make thou  lights in public. They never elect a  man pope concerning whom anyone can  ebg up any cliargcb made by the oppo-  sitiou_prioi_to_the_sc*Iectlon Thc_uleu  that tho pope sole'cts his own succossoi  is a suiiotblitlon that is leilicuious. If  lie dlel'nninu lus succcbsoi in his will,  theiCi is 110 more guarantee tliat it woulel  be lalided by the conclave than tlm e\-  cciilois of an oidlnury person deceased  would tiy to eloliver to some bcueficii 1 y  lhe heaviest 01 pioperty lights in the  moon Wluil tlio pope says ns head of  tiie ehuicii is law, but when Iho pope  is deiui Iht'iu is uu law but the conclave'  anil the conclave' must iniiko the pope  befoie he hoeoiues Mtptcmc. Tlie e\-  pliinations of the selectlnus of |u,p,*s  have alevnys been ex post' fm tn  Viuiotib inlleicuccs havo been assigned to  account for tiie choice of onu man 01  auothei, but the fact has always been  that tliu inan selected may have been  chosmi foi a thousand ami one reason**  allcgetl by outsldei s, but his individuality soon declares tho fact that ho was  chosen for but one icason, that being  tliat ho scemcil the man best quallfioel  in eveiy way to maintain the solidity  and prestlgo of tlio institution ovei  whose moral ilBstinieH Iio was called to  preside.

The oflice is elective anel the action of any pope tending  to dcstioy the elective principle would  be of uo effect, for the conclave is jealous Of its rights and its members are  possesbed of just, enough human nature  to wish to exerciso a great prerogative  without regard to thc dictation of a  man scveial days dead. There's only  one thing certain about the next pope's  lelentity, and that iy, tnat he will bo  an Italian. One! may have hib opinions  of the advisability of conferring the of-  lico * of a universal spnitual luler to  inuuibcis ol uny one nationality, but  the Italians have the votes in the conclave and the votes, as we say, "do the  business." Tho Italians diave a. genius  ior polities. Most of them arc .on the  giound all thc time They know'lithe  men,most available and they have tho  (list candidates in the'field Then they  light out the battlo with piaycis and  Hustings, but the rcbult is always the  choice of an Italian This is a human  e\planatlon of tho mattci. Itoinan  Catholics believe that tho choico is divinely inspired. Others may doubt  that, but what is. Is, and in a spmt  01 no irrevcicnce, it may be said, that  if thc choice of a majority of a choosing body is not the choice ot God there  is no security that aiiy other choico  rould be so Tho pope's election con-  \evs no authority to name his successor.

Anel vve ure not so much doing honor  to his memory as vve aro honor to  ourselves when wc sot up this memorial to him in (his great city.  Burns was essentially a good man.  He had a lofty ideal before him. and  it is a pity ho did not reach it. When  we hear men raising up their voices  in rebuke to him, we will say that  wo prefer the author of Holy Willie's  Prayer to Holy Willie himself.  (Laughter)-.  Tho fiuestion of Burns' genius has  been answered by man ind. Burns  loved Scotland truly and abundantly,  but he loved humanity bettor than  Scotland, and- to-day wo lovo him  because lie wus so universal in his  ideas. There is someone wiser than  ��� anyone in icgnrd to a man's writ-  ��� ings, and-'that i.s everybody. When  you havo a verdicj of the whole people, you need not care for the exceptional critic on the other siele.  (Laughter). ���     .  There noVcr was a time when his  poetry, nfter it was written, was not  recognised as the very best. r This  was so just after it caine from his  pen. The same cannot be saiel of  nny other living man. You hn'el Tennyson struggling for years before his  poetry gained iccognilion, and how  'many have toiled and struggled and  yet were' entirely ignored! How different with Burns! No sooner had  hi.s first cell tion of poetry conic forth  than ho was proclaimed from end to  end of Scotland as the greatest  speaker in verse and poeliy lhat had  ever come among his people. He was  nt oiie-o recognUed, not only liy Scotland, as the greatest. Cowpcr at  once uilmitied tliis. There never was  n moment when he did not hold this  recognition anil was held as such in  the hearts of all English-speaking  people the world over. Englishmen.  Irishmen, and Scotchmen all unite in  honoring him as the poet of humanity.  Tliis can be saiel also ns far as his  popularity is concerned. His popularity lias gone on increasing, and  will go on increasing, as long n.s men  understand���nml tliey will always���  the dialect in which i( is written.  ���The-Scott ish-dinloct-will-nover-censo-  to lie spoken, for there are men who  would bo willing to learn that dialect if for nothing else than to .understand and appreciate tlio wotels  of Itoherl Burns. Thi.s man was so  sine-eio, so opcn-li''iirlcil, so genuine,  so full of litiinaiijly, so full of generosity, endowed Willi .siirh nfiee-Uon  nnel li'iiilcrness, that lii-; writings aru  filled  with  Ihe Iriiciii'ss of mil uie.  It i.s ridiculous to talk about Linns  nnel his poetry being two iliilci-ent  tilings. His poeliy i.s lhe simi'ie.

It is -ee.y hard for lis sometimes lo hear eiiversity, but, it-is  harrier to bear prosperity suddenly  thrust upon us. Still when Burns  was among the great men of eminence,  it was the only time that   he  hnd associated with his equals, and  it is little wonder tlmt he eliel not  feel in the least end .u-r.issed. There  lie vvas among those great scholars,'  unconscious, unassuming,'never speaking when not wnnted to, ami ne.er  speaking unless he had something to  say. Good heavens, what a change  it would bring over society if thi.s  rule was  established  to-duy.  Continuing, tiie learned gentleman  quoted a number ol the poet's writings, after which ho remarked, that  he for one nt any rate was willing to  bear the defects ot Burns for the  sake of liis qualities.  What greater war song was there  than ".Scots Wha line." The glory  of Burns was his .songs, nnd tlie;  glory of his songs-was his love songs.  "I believe that many of those who  say they do not iviul those," ho  state-el, "rend them on (he sly. Why,  sir, 1 nm an olel inan, niul some of  my friends behind me are not young,  nnel yet our lieu its are thrilled by  those love snugs, unel how iniiili  moru must they thrill the hearts of  the young���anil thank Clod for it.  "Anil then again, there is liis 'Auld  Lung Syne' whiih is known wherever  tlie Knglish language is spoken. That  song has hol only made men clasp  hands in goo'-fellowship, but has  knitted men's hearts together. Yes,  many a ree-oiu-iliuiion has been  brought about by the strains of 111.a  melody sung at gatherings.  "Verlmps we may he told that however great Burns was ns a singer he  was not a teaflicr.

It is not likely that he will  be a commanding figure in that history, but he will be an interesting  one. As philosopher and student, he  could hardly fail to be inte:esting.  lie will try to do liis duty with tho  breadth of aim nnel the .thoroughness  of the philosopher. He has surprised  his associates several times by his  ability to handle practical affairs  witli,, efficiency, and will probably elo  so once again. But it is not likely  that lie will remain long tho leader  of bis party. li is likely that a  stronger, less philosophical, less iu-  difTcieiit man will in time* squeeze  him to one side. And it is not likely that Mr. Balfour vvill greatly  care.  Mr. Balfour lias produced two  book's, A Defence of Philosophic  Doubt, and The Foundations of Belief, both of which liave won what  may bo called a "success of estimation," but which have not been generally rend, anil hnve not had n  great influence upon the current of  human  thought.  Mr. Balfour has his recreations. lie  is a cycler, and is the president of  the National Cyclers' Union. lie is  even better known as a golfer. If  Mr. Balfour does anything strenuously, it is to play golf.

BABY'S  OWN TABLETS.  Are Nature's   Cure    For    Children's  Ailments.  one of Nature's own  Indian  bark^jvig-  .Meclicines containing opiates should  never be given to children���litj.lc or  big. When you use Baby's Own Tablets for your littlo ones you have a  positive guarantee that they .contain  neither opiate nor 'harmful drug.  They aro good for all children from  the smallest, weakest infant to the  well grown , child. These Tablets  quickly relieve anel positively cure all  stomach and bowel 1 troubles, simple  fevers, troubles while teething, etc.  Thoy always do good, and can never  do the slightest harm. For very  small infants crush thc Tablets to a  powder. Mrs. J. V. Latham, Chatham, Out., says : "My baby took  very sick. His tongue wus coated,  his breath offensive, and he could not  retain food on his stomach. Jie also  had diarrhoea for four or five days  and grew very thin and pale. We  gave him. medicine, but nothing helped hiin until we gave him Baby's  Own Tablets. After giving him the  first dose he began to improve and  in three days he was quite well. He  began to gnin flesh and is now a  fat, healthy boy. I am moro than  pleased with the Tablets as I think  they saved my baby's life."
