Many bodies were sent to other cities
last night and today.
Many Sad Scenes.
Sad indeed were some of the pictures
to behold; Instances of father and moth

three and four orphan children were not
rare. Downtown the streets were
crowded with people watching the pro
cessions and business was almost at a
The search for victims, which has
been so faithfully conducted the past
two days, was resumed at dawn today,
but the chances of further recovery of
dead grows fainter as time passes, al
though many persons supposed to be
victims are as yet unaccounted for.
Twenty-Eight Still Missing.
The work of Identifying the victims
has begm dlfTlcult, but perhaps not more
so than In many other similar cases.
The names have been duplicated and
quadruplicated with trilling variations,
until the lists have been swelled to even
more than 100. The list of Identified

other one of the unidentified bodies was
recognized shortly before 11 o'clock
this morning as being Mrs, Ada Camp

The wrecking crews succeeded In en

morning, but no bodies were found.
This was about the last place where
bodies were expected to ,be found at
the scene of the wreck and any fur

ANXIOUS TO END STRIKE.
Chicago Strikers Have Called Samuel
Gompers to Aid in Settlement.
CHICAGO. Aug. 10. An nn evidence
that the Ktrlkera are eocloua to bring
about a peace conference o.nd to end the
strike, they have solicited tho. Interven
tion of Samuel Gompers. profldent. of
tho American Federation of Labor.
It Is said to be the plan for Mr. Gom
pers to act au a mediator and do his ut
most to arrange a meeting with the
representatives of the packers.
A conference between the Retail Meat
Dealers' union ended this afternoon
with the appointment of a commlHsion
which will visit the- packers tomorrow
and make another effort to settle the
Shutting Off Ice Supply.
Extension of the picket lines about
wholesale and retail markets was also
promised by union officials. A confer
ence of the leaders was held and plans
were made to shut off Ice and meat
from more establishments patronizing
the big packers.
Despite all efforts of commission men
today's receipts of live stock were so
heavy as to astonish the packers.
There were 23,000 cattle; 2.ri,000 hogs and
1G.00O sheep. "With the New York pack
ing plants closed by the strikers, the
disposal of all the receipts was admit
ted to be a dlfTlcult problem.
Prize Fights Stop.
Prize fights for the entertainment of
the non-union workmen at the stock
yards may cease as the result of 'an ac
cident that caused the cancellation of a
programme of three bouts lost night.
The prize ring was In the Interior of
the stock yards on Packers avenue.
Daniel Smith, employed as a strike
breaker by Morris & Co., was pitted
against Peter Ford. Both men are col
ored. Smith struck Ford on the head
with such force that Smith's arm was
shattered and the programme was de
clared off. The police are said to have
been given orders to prevent any fur
ther prize fights in the yards.

President Popular in
States Selected by Taggart
for Democratic Killing ,
Leaders of Democracy Making Great
' Bluff to Divert Attention From
WASHINGTON, Aug. 10. Republi
can leaders do not view with concern
Tom Taggarfs talk' about gaining the
Rocky fountain States, including Colo
rado, Utah, Montana and Idaho, for
the Democracy. If there Is one sec
tion In the whole country more than
another where the President is popu
lar, It Is said, 't Is right in the States
enumerated by Chairman Taggart for
a Democratic killing.
Democratic leaders, It Is suggested by
well-informed Republicans, would bet
ter look to their fences In certain
States usually classed as surely Demo
cratic Missouri is one of these; for,
despite District Attorney Folk'9 nomi
nation for Governor, there are indica
tions of wholesale cutting df the Demo
cratic ticket, especially In bt. Louis.
St. Louis Falling in Line.
It Is known that the Democratic
Congressional committee virtually has
given up hope of carrying the two for
mer Democratic districts in St. Louis.
Representative Bartholdt is now the
only Republican member from St. Louis,
but It Is believed that all three city
districts will elect Republicans to Con
gress In November.
James J. Butler, who has been un
seated twice because of cJe,ciIorifoaucDi
In' his district. Is determined that' n5
other Democrat shall be elected there,
and Butler, It Is known, will not run
.again. Butler, In fact, boasts that he
will defeat Folk In St. Louis, and may
cause him to lose the State. Repre
sentative Cochran, another Missouri
Democrat, may be defeated this year
in the St. Joseph district, for he al
ready Is having the light of his life to
win support. Cochran Is a sliver Dem
ocrat, and many of his party will not
support him further.
What Democrats Face.
A Republican, gain of at least two
Congress seats, probably three and pos
sibly five, In Missouri faces the Demo
crats, and they do not relish the situa
tion In that old Bourbon State.
Outlook in Wisconsin.
Concerning trie situation In Wiscon
sin, and It Is understood that the stal
wart faction, of which Payne Is one of
the. leaders, much as It wishes to defeat
Gov. La Follette, will not take the re
sponsibility of losing the State to Presi
dent Roosevelt by carrying the factional
fight too far. Mr. Payne has given as
surances, seconded by Senator Spooner
and Representative Babcock, that n
Republican majority for the State'fe
electors surely will be secured.
It has been agreed virtually that the
vigorous speakers campaign which the
Republicans intend to conduct this year
will not begin Until September 15.
Chairman Cortelyou will prepare the
Itinerary, aided by Representative
Tawney, In Chicago headquarters, and
the Eastern members of the executive
committee In New York.

fop Mining Congress
Salt Lake Prepared to Make Larger
Inducements Than Other
PORTLAND, Or., Aug. 10. The pro
gramme lias been completed for the
American Mlnliig Congress, the sessions
of which will bo held in this city from
August 22 to 27.
The list of speakers Includes some of
the most prominent men In the country,
and from the character of the subjects
that have been selected for the address
es, the promise that the coming con
gress will be the most Important In his
tory may well be expected to be ful
filled. Although the day set for the. opening
session Is yet two weeks hence, candi
dates for next year's congress are ap
pearing. The first application was re
ceived about the middle of July and was
from Cincinnati. O. More ambitious
than these arc Denver, Salt Lake, Oma
ha and several other cities of the Mid
dle West, which have aspirations to bo
come the permanent home of the con
gress. Edward G. Rolnert, editor of the
Dally Mining Record of Denver, is here
looking after the Interests of his city.
According to Mr. Relnert, Denver has
the lead In the race and will make every
effort to stay there.
"Denver," pays Relnert, "is the logical
home of the organization. It Itf the gato
of the West, and the metropolis of a
large mining State. It will make offers
of real estate and perhaps money for
the privilege of having the permanent
head of the organization located there."
However, Salt Lake Is prepared to
make large Inducements and claims that
she has. quite as many qualifications as
has her eastern neighbor. Omaha has
advantages which she proposes shall be
forcibly brought to tho attention of the
congress, not the least of which is that
of being more centrally located.
Whatever the outcome may be, a live
ly and exceedingly spirited contest is
destined to take place.

Mr. Clark's Address.
Judge Parker: Tho most momentous po- lH
lltical performance known among men is lH
the qu.'idrcnuinl election of an American IH
President. Tho supremo executive power lH
of SO.CO0.0OO free people changes hands with lH
simplest ceremony und most perfect or- ll
der. While the contest for votes Is waged ll
with earnestness and enthusiasm some- lH
times with much heat und bitterness tho flH
ready acceptance of the result by tho de- ZH
fcatcd Is the surest augury of tho perpet- KH
uity of our Institutions. Presidents come lH
and Presidents go, but the great Rcpub- lH
11c freighted with the hopes of the hu- IH
man race for liberty goes on forever.
All history proves that a government lH
bottomed on popular suffrage Is a govern- lH
ment by party. Experience shows that ho NH
serves his party best who serves his coun- iuH
try beat. Tho names most fondly cher- nH
lsncd arc those of men ho devoted their
time, their energies, their talents, their
fortunes and their lives to the promotion
of the public weal. Stronger incentive to
high and patriotic endeavor no man hath
than the . hope to stand through all tho
ages In that goodly company.
Result of Convention.
Out of the masterly debates and pro
found deliberations of the St. Loula con
ventlon emerged a reunited .party, which
goes forth conquering and to conquer. Tho
liower of the Democracy assembled there
to consult on the state of tho country and i
to take measures for restoring tho gov- j
crnmont to the principles enunciated by 'H
iiiu miners, irum wmcn il huh uruieu lur tfM

Democratic opinion was represented by H
brave, honest and able champions in that lH
great conclave of free and patriotic men. VH
The St. Louis convention carried out no kH
cui-and-drled programme. Its delegates IfH
were not mere automatons or marionettes iil
waving and talking when the strings wero IfH
pulled by one man. Speech and action iiH
were absolutely free, and tho great de- (11
bates which took place there will constl-
tute part of the permanent political Ut- il

made to gag or bridle any one. If a dele- ftl
gato had a pet Idea which he was anxious uiH
to exploit, he was given an ndequate and ILH
respectful hearing before either the plat
