will give the commonwealth an option

agreement made between the Depart?

terms that if the measure is passed in j
it? present form they will at once ap- J

The directors, in a statement defin?
ing their position, also declare that the
Walsh bill places them in a worse posi?

federal court after the decision of all

and some remained for more than six

came expecting thrills, and even the i
morbidly curious, ?vhen they [

They saw Mrs. Angle, who has been '
held a prisoner since Tuesday mid?

to the floor in a faint.
They saw her wealthy father, Leon?

from the room, while Coroner Phe

journed the inquest. "
And, while they did not know that
a little later she was released in $5,000

"I believe that thi? hat." answered
the Chief of Police, picking up Bal?
lou'? h?t, "wsi hit with this iron. The i
dent in the hat match?? thi? iron.
Then the chief held the rear end of
the iron ag?in?t the dent to illustrate
his theory. Next he indicated "?orne
stain? on the end of the iron whten .
he believes caused th? dent in trie
hat. and said: ? , j
"My opinion is that this is bloo I on
the rear end of the iron."
Detective .Sergeant James Heffernan
testified that Mrs. Angle told him after
her arrest that the first ?he knew of
the injuries to her aged suitor wa?
when he returned to her apartment
about 11 o'clock, a few minutes ?fter
he left, and on her opening the door
said: "I fell downstair?; I hurt my?
self. I didn't want you to worry."
Yesterday, Heffernan continued, he
visited Mrs. Angle in her cell and he
testified she said to him:
"They don't accuse me of killing him.
do they? Have they found anything
he was hit with?"
Heffernan testified that when he
gave her a negative answer to each of
the question? Mrs. Angle said to him:
"Now I will tell th? fVuth. I heard
him fall. I ran out and he said to me: .
'I have hurt my head.'"
Coroner Phelan said to-night that it
may be days before he will announce
his finding. He said this would hardly
be done until after Mrs. Angle was in
condition to testify. Her examination,
he said, would probably be in secret.
Ballou's body was taken to W'in
chendon. Mass., to-day, where it was
buried in the Ballou family plot.
CHAUFFEURS IN AGAIN
Mason-Seaman Strike Ends
After Six Hours.
For the second time within a week
the Mason-Seaman Transportation ,
Company, which recently took over the
Yellow Taxicab Company, had a "fliv?
ver strike" on its hands yesterday. A
"flivver strike," it was explained by an
official of the company, is a "six hours
imitation of the real thing."
When the two taxicab companies
were amalgamated it appears that the
chauffeur? of both concerns became
fearful that they were about to lose
their jobs. When Percy J. Holswort'n,
formerly general manager of the Yel?
low Taxicab Company, was continued i
in that capacity under the new regime,
the Mason-Seaman corpa of chauffeurs
went on strike last Monday. To set
their fears at rest Mr. Holsworth re?
signed and the men returned to work
the following day.
At a meeting of the Yellow Taxicab !
chauffeurs on Wednesday night it was
voted to strike in order to compel Mr.
Holsworth'* reinstatement. Only about
100 of the ?00 men involved were pres?
ent at the meeting, with the result
that yesterday the greater portion of
the drivers refused to abide by the
strike order and reported for work.
Later in the day a conference was
arranged between A. F. Rockwell,
chairman of the board of directora of
the old Yellow Taxicab Company, and
the strikers. The men were assured
that there would be no discrimination
against them. They were guaranteed
work for an average of twelve hours a
day at the rate of 21 centa a mile.
Heretofore they averaged days of
seven hours and were paid at the rate
Of '23 cents.
The men were further assured by
Mr. Rockwell that any other griev?
ances would be placed for settlement
in the hands of a man neutral, to both
companies, and that the new general
manager, to be selected in the place of
Mr. Holsworth, would not be a parti?
san of either side. The men returned
