Further Evidence that Heinze Has
Sold Out to Standard

Special to The Journal.
Butte, Mont., Nov. 2.Attorney Con
I Kelly, one of the leading counsel for
the Amalgamated Copper company, in
the course of his remarks at a demo
cratic rally last night, declared that
three Amalgamated lawyers were pass
ing on abstracts of titles to the mines
or F. Augustus Heinze with a view of
taking the properties over.
On April 16 a contract was signed be
tween Heinze and James W. Forbis, by
which, Kelly said, Forbis was to receive
a commission of 8 per cent on the pur
chase price to be paid for Heinze's in
terests in the event that Forbis pro
moted a sale.
A syndicate, with John W. Gates at
the head, was formed for the purpose of
acquiring Heinze's mines for the Amal-
amated, and as an emissary of Mr.
with Attorney Leonard of
Heinze's legal staff, Kelly went to New
York and opened negotiations with H.
H. Eogers. The contracts and ex
change of negotiations, Attorney Kelly
declared, are now locked up in the safe
of the Thornton hotel.
Mr. Kelly's satement caused much
surprise in the city and there is a dis
position to accept the sell-out story,
despite Mr. Heinze's declaration that
he is in Montana for the purpose of pro
tecting its people against the encroach
ments of the Standard Oil.
Senator Clark has confirmed the re-
or of the sale by Heinze for more
$7,000,000 of his mining interests
in Montana to a syndicate repre
sented by Gates and Belmont. Mr.
Clark said today:
"The transfer will be actually made
about the middle of January and the
property will eventually pass into the
possession of the Amalgamated Copper
company. This will bring the Montana
war to a dose."
TEN PLUNGED TO
DEATH IN SHAFT
Mine Cage Falls and Men Are
Crushed or Drowned 1,700
Wilkesbarre, Pa., Nov. 2.Ten miners
were crushed to death or drowned in the
Auchincloss shaft of the Delaware,
Lackawanna & Western company, at
Nanticoke today. The victims, with
the exception of one, are said to be
Poles and Slavs.
The men had taken their position on
the cage to be lowered into the shaft,
the total depth of which is 1,700 feet.
At the bottom is a sump filled with
water. The shaft is a double one with
two carriages. When the signal was
given the engineer to lower the cage, it
is said, the engine got beyond the con
trol of the engineer. One of the cages
shot upward to the seive at the top of the
shaft and this caused the other cage,
carrying the men, to become overbal
anced and it fell to the bottom of the
A party of rescuers was organized
quickly, but the work of rescue was dif
ficult. Tim sides of the shaft were torn
out by the car in its mad race to the
bottom, and the foot of the shaft was
filled with debris of all kinds. The
bodies were horribly mangled. Those
that were not killed outright by the fall
were drowned in the sump.
The cage containing the men had all
the safety appliances and it appears
that after dropping 1,000 feet the cage
caught in the safety fastenings, but it
was brought to a stop so suddenly that
the bottom dropped out and the men
fell out and landed in the sump, a dis
tance of 700 feet further down the
shaft. Ten men were killed. Only one
obdy has been taken out. The rescuers
say it will be late in the afternoon be
fore the other bodies are recovered.

New York Sun Special Servioe.
Washington, Nov. 2.The sudden
conversion of Parker from a conserva
tive" candidate with a judicial tem
perament" into a stump speaker out
rivaling Bryan in demagogy: his tele
gram of congratulation to Bryan and
his abandonment of his early plans at
the behest of Bryan's old managers,
have startled democratic national lead
ers here who had hoped that this year's
campaign, if not successful, at least
would close with the reorganizer"
element in control of the party ma
Judge Parker's conduct has com
pelled them to abandon that belief. He
has given Bryan the right to say that
the only life in the campaign followed
a line of attack similar to that made in
1896 and 1900, and to claim the right
of supremacy for the old Bryan crowd,
if not of actual leadership for Bryan
This is regarded here as the most seri
ous phase of Parker's surrender to
Bryanism, for no democratic leader con
tends privately that Boosevelt can be
Bryan's Main Thought.
Bryan's main thought is on the con
dition of the democratie party after
election, for it is not forgotten that in
early July, when he believed that he
would be in the minority, and an out
cast, Bryan gave notice that a reorgan
ization movement would be begun after
election to take the party out of the
control of those who dominated the St.
Bryan then expected that Parker
would hold to his plan of a "conserva
tiv e" candidacy and that his views as
to the issues of the campaign and the
manner of presenting them would be
Now that MB views have been ac
cepted by Judge Parker, however, and
the democratic canvass is under full
swing in the old Bryan way, it is be
lieved here that Bryian will be stronger
after election than ne has ever been
before. Parker cannot now repudiate
him or his platform.
Good Work for Naught.
That is the serious phase of the pres
ent situation within the democratic
party and democrats here do not hesi
tate to say that it means that all the
good work accomplished at St. Louis is
They haven't lost Bryan, as they
hoped to do. On the contrary, they
have intrenched him more strongly than
ever, and engrafted his demagogy on
the partyjexcepting, of course, 16 to
1, about the loss of which he will not
quarrel with anyone. Bryan is glad
to be relieved of that dead issue. Obvi
ously he couldn't cast it out himself,
hence he is glad to have others do it
Parker's surrender to him, it is in
terpreted here, means that a Bryan

St. Petersburg, tfov. 2.The official
reports from Tqkio describing the des

WOUNDS ON BODY
Night Assassin Brutally Murders
Dr. Gebhard, a Dentist
of New Ulm.
Terrible Struggle in the Barred
Office of the LatterMotive
Speoial to The Journal.
New Ulm, Minn., Nov. 2.A crime in
a business block on a principal street
here last night reproduced in real life
the bloody and weird fictions of a Du
mas or a Poe.
Dr. L. A. Gebhard, a young dentist,
was brutally murdered in his office at
about 10 o'clock by an. unidentified as
sailant. A blood-stained knife and
hammer were found near his body.
The room presented a picture of in
describable horror and confusion, and a
fierce life and death struggle had evi
dently taken place between the young
dentist and his assailant. Much of the
furniture was broken, and blood was
smeared upon it and spattered the
walls. Pools of blood were on the
Gebhard's body, particularly the head
and neck, was covered with knife
wounds, several of which would alone
hove caused death. Circumstances indi
cate that he was first stunned by a
blow on the head with the hammer and
that while he lay prostrate his mur
derer bent over him and slashed his
face and neck with a knife. Fifteen
or twenty knife wounds appear on the
Saw the Murderer.
Asa P. Brooks, editor of the New
Ulm Review saw the murderer in the
very midst of his carnival of blood and
gives a fair description of him. The
office of the Review is directly below
the one which was occupied by Dr.
Gebhard. At 10 o'clock last night Mr.
Brooks heard sounds of a scuffle over
head. At first he was not much im
pressed by the noise, thinking that the
furniture in the room above was being
moved about. He heard no cries for
help, but, the strange noises continuing,
he finally ran up the stairs to the sec
ond floor to investigate.
Climbing upon the banister of the
stairway, Mr. Brooks could look thru
the transom of Dr. Gebhard's office.
His glances fell at once upon an ap
palling spectacle. Dr. Gebhard was
upon the floor covered with blood, while
bending over him and slashing his body
with a knife was a young man, the

derer met for an instant, and, fearing
he would be shot, the former .lumped
from his point of vantage and ran to
the floor below.
When he again returned it was too
latethe assassin had escaped. The
door of Dr. Gebhard's office was looked
and the authorities when summoned had
to force it. The murderer had escaped
by cutting out the screen in the window
overlooking the alley and then had
severed a telephone wire and, by means
of it, let himself down to the ground.
He had disappeared as mysteriously as
he had come.
Mr Brooks says -the. murderer is a
medium-sized man, of smooth face ana
between 20 and 25 years of age. He
had very dark hair and wore black
clothes. Apparently he was not a work
ing man, but rather had the appearance
or living an indoor life.
Officers and citizens are completely
at a loss for the motive behind the
arm of the murderer. A safe in the
office of the dentist was found open,
but nothing appears to have been taken
from it. If the murderer was originally
bent on robbery, he seems to have been
frightened away before the commission
of such crime. The robbery theory is
scouted as not offering a rational ex
planation of the affair. A burglar
would have damaged the safe, but the
doctor himself had evidently opened it.
The mystery surrounding the affair
is further increased by the high stand

DUNN DENIES AUTHORSHIP
Special to The Journal.
Mankato, Minn., Nov. 2.Robert O. Dunn denies having written these let-
ters to Heatwole. Seen at the Saulpaugh hotel this afternoon, he said he
had not seen a copy of the St. Paul Globe quoting from his epistle*.
"Anything about me In the Globe Is false," he said.

WHY NELSON GOT
INTO THE GAME
Senior Senator Learned that the
Anti-Clapp Movement In
volved His Own Seat.
It has just come to light that Senator
Knute had some reason to become
frightened and demand a new hand at
helm of the republican state machine.
It is learned upon good authority that
the senator had been fully informed
of the compact which had been entered
into between R. C. Dunn and Joel Heat
wole whereby in return for support for
the governorship, Heatwole was to be
backed by the administration for
United States senator to suoceed Moses
Had the revelation stopped at this
point, there is no reason to doubt but
that Senator Nelson would have kept his
hands off and let the junior senator fight
his own battles. But coupled with it
he also received an intimation that his
own seat was being plotted for. Sena
tor Nelson was not the man to be wor
ried by the opposition of cither Heat
wole or the other fellow, but when he
was informed by his friends, who
claimed to have the facts at their com
mand that Heatwole and his colleague
to be were likely to unite their forces,
he evidently reached the conclusion that
an ounce of prevention was worth a
pound of cure and took immediate steps
to head off any serious conclusions to
That Heatwole was true to his agree
ment with Dunn is shown by the fact
that one time when things looked dark
for Dunn, the former suggested that if
there was any question about the lat
ter's ability to secure the nomination
over Judge Collins without the aid of
Clapp, Dunn was at liberty to enter into
any combination with the senator which
he might find to his interest, and per
mission was given to offer Heatwole's
support with his. This offer was made
more tljan a month before the state
convention and was indignantly re
jected by Mr. Dunn, who said he would
see the pfovernorship in Hades before
he would promise any support to Clapp.

PROOF GIVEN, BUT|
WILL HE GET O UB
Dunn Promised to Withdraw if
Convicted of Plotting
Will Robert O. Dunn withdraw from
the republican state ticket?
If he lives up to his statement made
yesterday in St. Paul, he will have to
get out of the race.
Replying to W. E. Verity's state
ment published in yesterday's Jour
nal, Mr. Dunn said:
I am for Moses E. Clapp for re
election to the senate. If there can ba
produced a line to show that I agreed
to fight him I vrill withdraw from thA
race for governor." Jp
The challenge was almost instantly
taken up by Joel P. Heatwole. Th'e
man who was Dunn's preeonvention
manager, and with whom Dunn had the
understanding to "fight Clapp," has
the documents to prove it, and. now that
his friend ^ferity's veracity has been
questioned, he has come to the front
y/ith the proof. He has been accused
'of "knifing Dunn/' but it is signifi
cant that even in connection with let
ters showing Dunn's duplicity he.makes
absolutely no charges^
Mr. Heatwole has given out the fol
"Mr. Verity's statement was made'!
without my knowledge. He was retired
from the secretaryship because he is a
friend of mine. The records of the $
republican state central committee
show this. Mr. Dunn was present ^atr
this committee meeting and demanded*
such action. When Mr. Dunn makes
the charge that Mr. Verity was retired
because he was hand in glove with the
democratic state central committee,' I
feel it my duty to stand by a man who
has been humiliated because of his
known friendship for me.
"Because a man has been given a
nomination for office by a great polit
ical party, it does not follow that the
party has, in addition, conferred upon
him the right to impugn the personal'
or political honor of other members of

Mr. Verity said today that, while ha
had not picked a quarrel nor sought to
inject discord into state polities, ha
felt that the letter adduced by Mr.
Heatwole vindicated his original
charge. "It is now up to the thinking,
people of the state," he said. "If theyv
dislike double dealing in a public main
