ono of the keepers of tho Forbes estate,
saw tho schooner when sho struck. It
was just beforo dark, und a terrific galo
was blowing. The schooner was coming
through Vineyard sound from the east

Tho schooner tacked and tried to work
Into the cove for anchorage, but the wind
boro her off. and as sho Bwung away sho

ballings of Carson and Robinson.
No Hope of Rescue.

on board tho vessel lo attempt lo reach
tho shore In a small boat.
At 1) o'clock tonight It was feared that
all on board had perished. The seas
were breaking over tho craft, and It was
not believed that she would hold togother
until daylight. She struck In a partic

could bo expected to stand tho terrible
pounding on tho Jagged rocks to which
sho was subjected.

The special train from Chicago bearing
President Gompers and tho members of
the cxccutlvo council, arrived lato to

D. Mahon of Detroit, president of tho
Amalgamated Street Railway employes,
said that tho labor outlook was decidedly
hopeful and that this would be one of
tho busiest sessions In tho history of tho
Rcgnrdlng tho action of tho oxecutlvo
council In revoking tho charter of tho Chi
cago Federation of Labor, Mr. Mahon ex
pressed himself as at a loss to account
for tho committee's action. He added,
however, that tho standing of Mr. Schardt
delegato from the, Chicago body, was not
In doubt, but that tho delegate would take
his place on tho floor of the convention.
The questions of wage disputes and
trado jurisdictions, Mr. Mahon said, wore
things that would eventually decide them
selves, and that all that was needed was
a sensible consideration of the facts.
Mr. Mahon spoke In decided terms
against too Introd- rtlon of politics Into
tho Federation. If said that the Social
ist delegates to thr convention had tried
at nearly every yearly meeting to have
tho Federation committed to Socialism,
and that they would again bo turned
down, as would bo tho delegates of other
political parties that attempted the same
Regarding the forming of an Interna
tional organization of labor unions, Mr.
Mahon said that tho only steps In that
direction were taken by the longshoro
men of tho International transportation
lines. Ho added It was a hard enough
Job to get tho labor unions of tho United
States Into line.

SON SUSPECTED jf 1
Adolph Weber Placed 1 '! 1 1
Under Arrest B j I
Takes Charge of Killing t H
Father. Mother, Sister and k 1 H
Brother Coolly. I I
Circumstances Indicate That He I? llj', ' 'vB
tho Man Who Recently Looted . mV
a Bank. It'
AUBURN, Cal.. Nov. 13. Adolph Weber '
has been placed under arrest, charged '
with tho murder of his parents, sister and I,
young brother last Thursday night and . IH
with having set the family residence on t
firo afterward to conceal the' crime. We-
bcr took his arrest coolly, but was alive i Jl
to what ho considered to be his legal ' IH
rlchta. i :
The arrest took placo Immediately after
Wober had loft the witness stand and' L IH
after ho had rather reluctantly answered JA
tho questions propounded to him by Coro- , ,
ner Shepard. tho District Attorney and V
soveral of tho Jurymen. A warrant for 'l '
his arrest had been sworn out, and after it1
Its servlco Weber asked to bo allowed to
rend tho document .
"I see It has been signed by a Justice i
of the Peace," he coolly remarked, "and u
a Justice of tho Pcaco has no authority r i lfl
In law to issuo a warrant to arrest me." J , IH
Sheriff Keonan said he wns hlmsolf per- lv
fectly satisfied with the legality of tho i
warrant and advised Weber to accompany ?
him to tho Jail without making any un- IH
necessary trouble or causlnff a scene. v i
Colled for an. Attorney. !!'
Wober, after carefully buttoning his I; '
coat, announced that he was ready, and I1
with little loss of tlmo tho Sheriff brought ' l!
him to the Jail. Tho prison doors had ','
scarcely clanged behind him beforo ho i
asked to be allowed to consult with an at- I .
torney. ) ,
Tho latest theory In tho Weber murder
case is that tho murderer shot tho father i'j
first then, as his sister appeared In the lit,
hall, hc shot Jhcr. and then the mother, ,
3i?51ng"wh,at'naa been done, screamed and 'm '
started from him, when ho shot her. Sho ijiV
continued on across the room and, raising ill',
her left hand, took down the telephone M'
receiver to call for holD, at which tlmo !! ,
she recolved the second shot, which pene- j'i
trated tho' body just under the left arm. ()-'
The child being tho only ono loft, the
murderer struck him over tho head and ! '
failed him. ,i
Tho operator at the central telephone jP- fr
office says that the lino that the Weber r
resldenco Is on showed, "busy" at about T
half an hour beforo the firo was dlscov-
crcd by Chris Henley, Jr. ;)'
Adolph Wober was sen In Jail this iji-
morning. He had nothing to say beyond 'y
that ho had a good night's rest. He ate f:
a good breakfast and called for somo W
milk, which tho Jailer did not have. No V
effort has been made as yet to got the y
young man out on a writ by his attor- i
Description With Thief. "j 11
Weber's description I said to tally with , l
the thief who recently looted tho bank '
hero. It will bo recalled that after the j , jH
daring robbery' In the middle of tho day , ;
the thief drove rapidly down tho road (, ' JM
lending toward Newcastle for about a
half-mllo and then left the rig and took to ' .
tho hills. f';
At this lime T. S. Palmer went to his ,
homo and, being an expert rifle shot, took ,,
his rifle with him and went after tho man. i"
Upon reaching tho spot whore the buggy i. ,
was abandoned he noticed a man climbing t ,
tho hill on tho opposite sldo of tho road '' IH
from that which the thief was supposed i'
to havo taken. r
Upon overtaking tho man Palmer found .ij
him to bo Adolph Weber. Julius Weber T, ll
nilcscd one of his home-inado money bags ij- jH
about tills time which tallied very closely U( iH
with tho one used by tho man who hold m . l
up tho bank. i,j lfl
Called for Newspapers. I': '
Young Webor asked for the dally news- i i
papers this afternoon nnd wanted to sco
thein nil. Ho road tho various accounts . IH
critically, criticising every discrepancy j
and threatening libel suits. But oven 1 j
with It all he talked moro about the re- ') IH
ported death of Kurokl, tha Jnpanesa I
General, than anything oleo. Ho was yi IH
very much Interested and talked ' quite J I
frocly on the war. but ho had nothing j(j
to say about his own case. Ho looked I I
much bettor than ho did when on tho i
stand last night, was not nervous and ,
said ho had had a vory good sleep. I )
Wober pays ho has no fear of convlc- !
tlon and believes he will be turned loo." i:r
at the preliminary trial. No now ovl- M
donco luts dovolopcd today except th ;
fludlna: of tho pistol ball that penetrated
Mr. Weber's body. The doctors at tha IH
autopsv found tho wound and last night i,
Undortakor Walsh found the bullot. It
was of tho samo caliber as that of tho ; jl
two found In tho bodies of Mrs. Webor
nnd MIS3 Weber. Nothing has as yet IH
been found in tho bodies that would ma- : IH
terlally aid In unravollnsr the my3tory. IH
The search will be continued tomorrow. I J
The inquest will not bo resumed until . j
