Conference of Stock and Land Men in
Denvor Adopts Series of Reso
lutions on Subject.
DENVER, Aug. 5. The Western
stockgrowers who have been conferring
here for three days with the special
land commission appointed by President
Roosevelt, finally adjourned this eve
ning without taking any action with
referenco to. tho strike at the packing
house centers. A resolution, was adopted
with practical unanimity urging upon
Congress "the necessity of the transfer
at the earliest possible date of the
management of the forest reserves to
the Department of Agriculture, where
not only the forests, but all the- Inter
ests Involved, may be prdp'erly studied
Talk of Leasing Land.
Discussion of the resolutions con
cerning grazing ' lands was animated,
there being a strong sentiment In favor
of amending those reported by the com
mittee ?o as to urge the passage of a
strict leasing law for arid lands of all
States and Territories-. As reported and
ns finally adopted, the resolutions are
Conditions Are Conflicting.
Whereas, After full discussion In opon
convention, the fact has developed that
conditions over the vast areas Included In
the grazing- districts of tho Wcei, are so
varied ' and conflicting that much time
must of necessity bo consumed In tho
classification of the public grazing area
as well as the determination of rango
customs and usages in different districts;
Whereas, The past creation of forest re
serves has often been Ill-advised and far
reaching, and the administration thereof
as concerns the grazing Interest, has been
faulty evon to Injustice, and believing
that the Department .of the Interior Is
not fully equipped to study and handle
tho forest reserve question; and,
Present Grazing System.
Whereas, Feeling that the present graz
ing system 1ms been built up through a
term of many years, consuming the life
work of tho Western pioneers and of tho
younger generation, entailing untold hard
ships and even sacrifice of life, and be
Uovlng that such sturdy efforts entitlo
the great majority of tho present occu
pants of the rango to no uncertain voice
in tho Initiation of any legislation that
may affect thlr interest; therefore, be it
Would Classify Lands.
Resolved, That wc favor the passage of
a law which will authorize tho Secretary
of Agriculture to thoroughly classify the
vacant landp of the United Slates and
determine tho conditions at present gov
erning tho.UBe of the grazing areas and
to ascertain those sections of the rango
area, if there be any. to which a leaso
system can ha satisfactorily applied.
Resolved. That the power to creato and
administer forest reserves shnll be vestod
In tho Department of Agriculture which
Is specially organized and equipped for
Control of Grazing Areas.
Resolved. That w favor Government
control of and Jurisdiction over all pub
He grazing areas, by or through tho De
partment of Agriculture, local questions
being decided on local grounds and under
regulations made to meet local conditions;
that tho range rights of present users of
the grazing area as determined bv prior
ity of occupancy and present uso shall bo
carefully safeguarded, and that no sudden
or stringent upheaval of existing condi
tions which would cause commercial dis
tress shall be made; on the other hand
such legislation must bo gradual In its
effect and leases granted only where lo

Run on Savings Bank
by Chicago Strikers
Action Taken in Retaliation for
Alleged Action of Pack
CHICAGO, Aug. 5. Hundreds of strik
ers and others today thronged to tho
Drovers Trust and Savings bank, near
tho main cntranco of the stockyards, and
withdrew their deposits, whether large or
small. Tho unusual scene attracted a
largo crowd, sot all manner of rumors In
circulation, and created a general run
on tho institution.
Retaliation, by Strikors.
Tho strikers' action was taken In re
taliation for tho alleged action of one of
the packing firms, Libby.McNcIl fc Llbby,
In making tho bank an adjunct to their
pay department. ' On Wednesday, It Is
said. Edward Tlldcn, a director of the
company, led strike-breakers to tho bank
In order that they might be paid off in cash
Instead of having to experience the em
barrassment growing out of tho packers'
system of paying In checks. This, how
ever, is denied.
Ready to Meet Demands.
When tho run began, tho offllcals dou
bled the force of paying tellers and mot
all withdrawal demands. The Drovers'
Trust and Savings bank Is located In the
enmo building with tho Drovers' Deposit
National bank, its local correspondent.
Its capital Is $200,000 and Its surplus and
profits aro named at 500,000. It has a long
list of depositors among tho workmen
about the yards, and pays 3 per cent In
terest on their savings, It opened Its
doors February 3, 1002, and Its last report,
Juno 10. 'shows resources and liabilities
amounting to ?l,SG5,50tJ.
Crowds of Depositors.
The police detail at the bank was in
creased this afternoon to handlo tho crowd
which at that hour extended In a lino 200
feet cither way irom the entranco, and
was beginning to show signs of restless
ness. At ono tlmo more than 500 depositors
wero masaod about tho Institution, whllo
fifty pollco tried to keep them In order.
Meanwhile, tho bank had huge piles of
greenbacks and sliver stacked upon tho
counter. The officials announced that
they would keep tho bank open all night
if necessary, and that more cashiers' win
dows would be opened. After the regular
closing time, 500 persons were In line wait
ing to withdraw money.
TO VENTILATE STREET CARS.
New Dovico Invented by a Brooklyn
WASHINGTON. Aug, C A simple
method for effectually ventilating street
cars without causing a draft has been do
vlscd by Dr. Walker, chief of tho Health
department of Brooklyn. Confronted
with tho problem of providing for the in
gress of fresh nlr and tho egress of foul
air without subjecting tho passengers to
a chilling draft, Dr, Walker sought the
simplest possible means. He had two
openings mndo In tho "deck-sash" of n
car about ten Inches apart, Into which
were fitted slats to deflect the Intake of
air to the roof of tho car. Between these
openings a shingle was extended from tho
side of the car so the wind would strike
against it when the car was In motion.
The prlnclplo on which Dr Walker pro
ceeded was that tho air would strike tho
front of the shlnglo and be deflected into
tho car, while dust, cinders, etc,, would
fall to th'o ground. Simultaneously tho
forward motion would create a vacuum in
tho reai- which would suck out tho vitlutod
air of the car through the rear slats. The
cold, fresh air Introduced would sink
toward tho floor and tho heated, tho vi
tiated air would rlso and pass out.
He had rags and refuse burned in the
car until tho atmowphero was rendered
absolutely unboarablc., Tho car was then
set In motion at tho averago rate of
speed, fifteen to eighteen miles an hour,
and Dr, Walker reports that within two
minutes and thirty seconds tho air within
way absolutely fresh and pure. It Is es
timated that during tho time the car was
In motion 300 cubic feet of air a minute
camo into tho opening In the front and
a similar amount was cxhauHted in tho
rear. Tho absenco of a draft to which
passengers would lmvo been subjected
was particularly noticed, as the progress
of tho fresh air to tho bottom of tho car
was so sradual It could apt bo detected
by a lighted taper.

Waited for Husband '
Many Long Years
Missing for More Thnn Generation,
Wife Still Believes He Will
Come to Her.
CINCINNATI, O.. Aug. 6. For thirty
long years, many of them full of bitter
hardships, Mrs. Julia M. Patton, this
city, has watched and waited for her
When she last saw him he was a
young man, hale and hearty, with the
glow of fresh young manhood in his
If he is living today he is white
haired, old and bent, but these things
the faithful wife does not take into
Still Her Sweetheart.
To her he Is still the young and hand
some man to whom she said good-bye
Just after the war, when ho went West
to seek hla fortune, leaving her behind
until he should be able to send for her.
Her devotion never has wavered for
During all the weary years she has
waited she has supported herself as best
she could, hoping that some day her
husband would return to claim her.
Almost Gives TJp Hope.
Now she has almost given up hope
of ever seeing him alive, and is trying
to find his last resting place, In order
that she ,may lay a wreath of flowers
on the grave, which she would water
with her tears.
Mrs. Patton la more than 60 years of
age and for several years has lived by
herself In a plain but neatly furnished
room at 725 Broadway.
It Is a story full of pathetic heart In
terest the way this woman, left by her
husband at the close of the Civil war,
has struggled through the- world alone,
and now, when her hair has turned
gray and tho furrows of care have left
Indelible trnces in her face, yearns for
tidings of him.
Man She Seeks.
The man she seeks is David Patton,
who waa a member of company H, One
Hundred and Thirty-seventh Ohio vol
unteers. Patton married her when he enlisted,
leaving the young wife alone at home, as
eo many did In those troublous times.
He served through the war and after
being mustered out, like many others,
turned his face to the West in search
Leaving Mrs. Patton here, he went
first to Kansas and then to Texas.
Occasionally word came from the
missing man, but these notes soon
stopped, and for thirty years Mrs. Pat
ton has lived alone with her hope that
some day he might return.
Not in Actual Want.
Through the infirmities of age it Is
gradualls' becoming harder for her to
find the means of support, but she does
not want. She has relatives here, .but
still she feels It unnecessary to fall back
"I will hear from David some day,"
she says, "and I shnll advertise in the
papers until I do. Whether he is dead
I do not know, but it would be a great
satisfaction to have definite knowledge
of his whereabouts."
RUSSET COMMON SOLD,
Broker Gets Himself Into Queer Pre
dicament in Wall Street,
NEW YORK, Aug. 5. "Russet com
mon" was dealt In by Mr. Percy Guard
on the curb In Broad street with a neat
profit to himself. He had acquired two
shoes at an emporium where samples
are offered for sale. They looked a llttlo
as though they had been caught by the
bears at first, but owing to the skillful
manipulation of Antonio Carlcolll of 25
Broad street, who has a pollBhlng es
tablishment In the basement, the leath
er took op a more healthy tone.
As there was a bull market the
friends of Mr. Guard asked him If he
would like to unload a little Russet
"I'll surely sell anything I have," was
Twenty brokers with writhing fingers
surrounded him. The bid on the new
shoes of Mr. Percy Guard began at five
points, and rose steadily until he had
made a sale on a basis of 33 for the
"Immediate delivery, now; no tri
lling," cried the purchaser, Alfred Hob
son. Mr. Guard sat down on the curb, took
off his shoes and handed them to their
He sent a messenger to his office for
an old pair, but the emissary was way
laid on the outskirts 6f the crowd. The
shoeless broker, who was not even on
his uppers, cust around for some means
to rescue himself from his predicament
and to regain his footing. He could not
begin over again in an humble shoe
string way. His opportunity came at
last, when Mr. Hobson held out the
"common russet" with the remark that
the price had been washed out'and that
the shoes were not worth more than a
"I'll give you a dollar for them," said
"Not much," was the reply of Mr.
Hobson. "I'll sell them to my own ac
count." At the peril of suffering grievous in
Jury Mr. Guard charged into the group
of brokers who were bidding for his
Russet common. Beginning with a. dol
