MEW WAR MENACES
COLORADO STRIKERS,
SAYS MINER CHIEF
Adolph Genner Declares
Serious Trouble Would
Follow Withdrawal of
Federal Troops.
"There will be another Ludlow."
The nhswer came to the question,
"What will lmppen If tho Federal troops
are withdrawn from Colorado?" It won
given by Adolph dermer. vice president
of the United Mine Workers of Illinois,
now attending the American Federation
of Labor convention. Oefmer took an
actlvo part In tho recent struggles In
Colorado.
Qcrmer Is a. big man. His nhouledrs
nqutiro olt like powerful mountain ledges.
Ho looks ntralght Into you.
"And 'do you think Wilson will be ablo
to bring about somo kind of a settlement
to prevent this?"
"He haBn't got tho backbone. He
hasn't got the nerve to compel Rocke
feller to carry out his terms of peace.'
"Is It prcbablo that tho Federal troops
will be withdrawn from Colorado this
winter?"
"I expect that tho troopo will bo out of
Colorado soon."
"Then what will the miners do, with the
federal troops gone and the mllltla turned
on them u'galn?"
CJcrmcr Is not a lalkatlvo man. Ho Is
thoughtful, careful and terribly In earn
est. "Ho said, "What the miners will do
depends upon whether they can get guns
to defend themselves."
'Then ho brought his firm, strong fist
down updn the table In front of him and
declared with emphasis that "If there Is
another Ludlow, there will be a call sent
out over tho nation to rally to the aid
of the miners In Colorado."
Gcrmer said the coming of the Fodcral
trodps has placed the miners In a position
where they will be at a serious disadvan
tage when tho troops leavo.
"The Federal troops," he said, "called
for tho arms of tho strikers and tho
strikers gave up their arms, all of them.
The men now havo ho guns. And If the
Federal troops go and tho gunmen are
turned loose again well, thcro will bo
another Ludldw."
As to tho new Governor, Carlson, Qer
mer was of tho opinion that he could do
very llttlo In behalf or tho strlkora.
Delegates to the American Federation of
Labor Convention representing the United
Mine Workers are discussing tho Cherry
mine dlsastor. Tho third anniversary of
tho disaster -will bo observed in Cherry,
111., an Friday, when oervlccs will be held
at the monument to tho memory of 259
victims.
Gcrmer will Jeavo hero Thursday to
attend tho memorial meeting, ana u is
nosslble that others among tho miners'
delegation may accompany him, return
ing to tho convention Immediately after.
delaware"Teachers to
vote on state pension bill
Commissioner and County Superin
tendents Outline Plan at Institute.
DOVER, Dol., Nov. 11. Delaware teach
ers are to voto on tho question of State
pensions for school teachers. State Com
missioner of Education Wagner and
I County Superintendents Cross, Carroll
and Hardesty at sessions of the- State In
stitute today outlined a tentative plan
for a pension fund.
Under the schema they unfolded tho
State will be asked to make a yearly ap
propriation, with the teachers sacrificing
a small portion of trwilr salaries to add
to the sum. The suggestion has been In
dorsed enthusiastically by teachers who
have been engaged In educational work
for a long term, but It was said It meets
with the disapproval of recent recruits to
the teaching force.
Tho Issue will be settled y a vote to
morrow of the GOO teachers attending the
Institute. Although Commissioner Wo
nor antt hla county aides Rre confident a
State appropriation could be obtained, it
Is not thought possible a grant could bo
made, until 1317, because of steady gains
In State expenses, while the taxes and
receipts remain stationary.
Superintendent Hardest?, of Sussex
County, today advocated a change In the
school tax rate In his county so that more
money would bo given rural schools.
This afternoon Mrs. Frederic Schoff, of
Philadelphia, addressed the teachers on
the value of home and school leagues.
KAISER TRANSFERS CAVALRY
FROM WEST TO EAST FRONT
Emperor Reported in Brussels Von
Kluk's Moves Censured.
LONDON, Nov. It.
X Morning Post correspondent on the
Belgian frontier says, under date of No
vember 8;
"A trustworthy friend, who has Just
left Brussels, assures me that Emperor
William was there on Monday on his way
tack from the western headquarters. Tho
fact of hla presence was not generally
known, and he remained only a few
hours.
"Another acquaintance, who has Just
come from Berlin, tells me that In three
days SO tralnloads of horses and men.
drawn from the western theatre of war,
have left Berlin for Posen, This weak
ening of the Germans' cavalry force in
Flanders he believes to ba due, in part,
to the fact that the fighting oo the west
em aide Is largely- confined to the artillery
and the Infantry, but the main reason Is
the urgent need of cavalry rejnforpe
jnents to cope with the advance of the
Russians In the east.
"My Informant, who has special -sources
of Information, tells roe -that the Oarman.
strategy In Flanders is subject to severe
criticism In military circles, and the ccfli
manOr, said to po Von Kluk. has per
sonally been taken to task by the Era
peror, yet Von Kluk, U believed to have
acted throughput In conformity with Im

SWAPPING YARNS THE
LEISURE SPORT OF A. F. L.
Some Delegates Toured Fairmount
Park by Auto Yesterday.
Since It Is ft well-established precept
that "Too much work makes Jack a dull
boy," the delegates to the annual conven
tion of the American Federation of Labor
spoilt yesterday afternoon on on auto
mobile sightseeing trip through Falr
mount I?ark; that Is, ftfmo of them did.
Other sat nrcund headquarters or wan
dered about the city. "Swapping" yams
Is a favorite pastime among the delegates
when they are not engaged In the busi
ness of the conclave and some of the
stories I
That Is how It became known that
Georgo A. Tracy, of Snn Francisco, was
nearly eaten by cannibals during the
summer. Besides being president of the
Snn Francisco Typographical Union,
Tracy Is a commissioner of the Pannnin
Pnclllc Exposition, in the Interest of the
fair he traveled a great deal, among
other places through the Far East. It
was on this voyage, according to the talc,
he, with several other Commissioners,
visited n South Pacific Island. Tracy,
who tips the scales nt about 400 pounds,
wns tho cynosure of every ravage eye,
nnd the matter wai a great puzzle to tho
gioup. Later, when they met a Govern
ment representative. It was easily ex
plained, The brown-skinned gentlemen
evidently were regarding Tracy as n de
licious entree.
James M. Lynch, of Syracuse, Commis
sioner of Labor of tho Stntc of New Tork,
Is tho exception that proves the rule. He
Is the only man east of Missouri who still
wears the broad-brimmed, soft, black hat
of tho Western Congressman.
Andrew Feruscth, Oelegate from the
Seamen's Union, la n genuine salt nnd
spns a yarn that smacks of the sea nnd
a long cruise. If Gilbert were to have
heard Fcruselh the "Ynrn of tho Nancy
Bell" would havo died aborning.
One of the busiest men is John A.
Phillips, member of the executive com
mittee of tho Central Labor Union, of this
city. Phllllpd Is In chargo of tho Union
Label Exhibit and ho has to answer as
many questions as Ledger Central.
P. J. McGrath, of Pittsburgh, delegate
from the Street Carmen's Union, declares
emphatically that his home city Is not
as black oo It Is painted. He says any
person can provo that to his own satis
faction by going out and looking ovor
the situation for himself. That's a safe
way to answer the charge.
Whpn n vivo voce vote Is called for, the
delegates from the International Brother
hood of Teamsters, Chauffers, Stablemen
nnd Helpers lean back In admiration
while Martin Teager, of this city, presi
dent and business agent, votes a la Pol
Plancon for the entire representation.
When Yeagcr is In form, and that Is
nearly always, his "Yea" or "Nay"
sounds like fifty".
Frank Morrison, secretary of the Fed
eration, wears invariably, a low cut waist
coat, a dazzling white shirt, a Btralght
collar and a black bow tie. Morrison has
shaken so many hands since the oponlng
of the convention that his hand aches.
William E. GrlfllB, member of the Or
ganization Council of the Philadelphia
Typographical Union, has been trying
for two wholo days to tell a story. He
usually gots ns far as: "Here's a now
one. Tho other day a friend of mine
was coming down Chestnut street
whim-" then somebody calls him and
tho story has to wait. He says he will
tell the story if it takes two weeks.
Not all the news received by the dele
gates Is pleasant. Thomas Tracy, of
Washington, D.' C secretary of the
Union Label Convention, was summoned
to his home yesterday by a telegram
stating his wife Is critically ill.
The delegates appreciate tha handsome
reception given them by this city. They
are unanimous In. asserting they wero
surprised by the unprecedented nmount
of appropriation made them by Councils,
and they feel convinced no other city
In the East would have treated their
organization so royally.
Harry W. Semple, of this city. Is vice
president of the Pennsylvania State Fed
eration of Labor, manager of the Trades
Union News and a member of several
important committees. Otherwise his
time Is his own.
J. Hampton Leonard, editor, publisher
and proprietor of the Pitman Reporter,
Clayton Reporter and Weekly Item,
Btepped In to see the union label exhibit
yesterday. He distributed cards to ail
the delegates within reach and asked
for theirs In return. The next issue of
the Pitman Reporter, et al will contain
mention of the "big ddin's."

WEALTHY WIDOW'S
ADVISER ARRESTED
FOR $700,000 THEFT
Richard J. Hartman Lodged
in Tombs Charged With
Swindling Mrs. Charlotte
L. Mackenzie.
NEW YORK, Nov. ll.-Rlchard J. Hart
man, who figured In the opera ticket
Bcandal last year ns president of TyBon
& Co., was arrested on tho eve of his
departure for, Europe and lodged In the
Tombs prison, charged with the larceny,
of nearly $700,000 from Mrs. Charlotte U
Mackenzie, widow of James 8. Macken
zie, at ono time an official in the Singer
Sewing Mnchlno Company.
According to tho Information on which
Hnrtman's Indictment wns secured, his
thefts cover a period of three years, dur
ing which tlmo he operated with tho
woman's stocks on tho strength of tho
power of attorney she unwittingly grant
ed him. Ills speculations have deprived
her of her entire fortune, It is alleged.
Through Mrs. Mnckenzlo's attorney It
wns learned sho had been forced to give
up lur home, and that, with her children,
sho has sought smaller quarters.
Hnrtmnn was nrrcsteil ns he wns en
tering the Vandcrbllt Hotel. At the
Criminal Courts Building he refused to
make any statement, on tho atlvlco of
his counsel, and was arraigned before
Judge Mulquecn In General Sessions. He
was held In J3S.00O' ball, which ho wns
unable to furnish. Hnrtman was In
dicted Monday nftor District Attorney
Delehanty hnd bcon Informed that ho
planned to ,salt for Europe today. Ho
was Indicted on three counts, charging
larceny of Z5,000. $00,000 and $48,000.
PAIR MET IN LONDON.
Mrs. Mackenzie nnd Hartman mot for
the first time In London In 1911. Sev
eral times he appealed to him for ad
vice concerning tho handling of tho
fortune her husband had loft her.
Later In that year they met again In
this country". Mrs. Mackenzie hail bor
rowed from tho Hudson County Na
tional Bank of New JeTscy $74,000, giving
as security 1440 shares In tho Singer
Sewing Machine Company, and in their
conversations she mentioned this fact
to Hartman.
In December, 1011. Mrs. Mackenzie re
ceived a telephone mesoago purporting
to como from tho Hudson County Na
tional Bank, Informing her that she must
take up her notes nt once. Then, it Is
olloged, she again appealed to Hartman
for counsel. Hartman, she clnlms, of
fered to take up tho notes for her. Sho
consented, and on the following day ho
returned with papers for her to sign, ac
cording to accusations, saying that they
were merely formalities required by tho
bank. The papers, It developed later,
were powers of attorney.
Taking the 1440 shares of stock that
wero turned over to him after paying
her debts, so Mrs. Mackenzie says, he
went to the Seaboard Bank, and there
put them up as collateral for a loan of
$100,000. Gradually all of her stocks fol
lowed the course of those of the sowing
machine company.
During the two years that followed the
granting of the power of ntlorney Hart
man paid Mrs. Mackenzie sums of money
that she supposed were dividends on the
stock she still Imagined she held. Ac
cording to Assistant District Attorney
Delehanty, however, practically all ot tne
money that Hartman turned over to her
was secured by floating more of her
stockB and bonds.
BUSINESS VENTURES DISASTROUS.
Hartman, it is alleged, In the meantime,
squandered all of the money he failed
to turn over to her In Ill-advised com
panies. Tyson & Co. was the first ven
ture of any magnitude after meeting Mrs.
Mackenzie. Next he invested heavily in
a company to promote the sales of a
cleapslng powder. The company failed,
and Hartman, according to tho lawyers,
found himself In llnanclal straits that re
quired Immediate action.
Calling on Mrs. Mackenzie one evening
he found her wearing several valuable
jewels. By frightening her with stories
of unprotected women being robbed, she
says, he Induced her to give the Jewels
to him so that he might put them In a
safe deposit (vault. He secured a. box
for her at the Hiirrimau National Bank,
but when Mrs. Mackenzie came to look
for her Jewels several weeks later she
found that two diamond rings, valued at
$3)00, had disappeared.
