INDICTED FOR PEONAGE
Florida Lumbermen Held by Federal
Mobile, Fla. Nov. 13.The United
States grand jury at Pensacola, Fla.,
has returned indictments against per
sons charging peonage against the own
ers of the Jackson Lumber company.
All of the alleged ,peonage cases or
iginated when the company imported
from New York a large number of for
eigners to work in the lumber camps
at a time when labor was scarce. TheBe
men claimed that when they reached
the camps, some of "them became dis
satisfied. Others who, it is alleged,
never intended working, endeavored to
make their way to other places after
being at the place a short time. It is
charged that bosses of the company
followed these men and after they had
passed from Florida into Alabama
seized them and compelled them to re
turn to the camps and work out the
amounts due the Company.
A noted authority on diseases of
the throat and lungs, who estab
lished a camp for consumptives in
the fine Woods of Maine, and
whose remarkable cures there
hstve attracted great attention
from the medical world, says that
ins entire treatment consisted ot

POLICE ARE BAFFLED
BY WAVE OF CRIMES
Terror in Pittsburg as Highw^
men Grow BoldHoldup
Pittsburg, Nov. 13.Emboldened by
the apparent helplessness of the police
and detective forces of the city, the
highwaymen and burglars who have ter
rorized, this city for the last ten days
have apparently extended their opera
tions into broad daylight, as well as
working under cover of darkness.
At 4 p.m. yesterday at the corner of
Sixth avenue and Wood street, one of
the most crowded spots in tha heart of
the city and within a few hundred
feet of police headquarters, Mrs. A. Q.
Boykin was assaulted and robbed by
two men who made their escape. The
woman was thrown to the sidewalk and
robbed. She sustained severe bruises.
In" the meantime trade and business
organizations are holding indignation
meetings and drawing up petitions to
the mayor and the police officials. The
murder of Harry Smith by burglars
has aroused that section and last night
a meeting of the East End Board of
Trade was held at which a vigilance
committee was appointed. A resolution
warning citizens to arm themselves and
recommending the purchase of several
bloodhounds was presented to the board.
The Pittsburg Board of Trade met
last night and discussed the rising tide
of crime in the city. A committee will
call on the city officials in an effort
to secure safety.
