CORONER FEARS EXPOSE OF
PANIC STARTER'S NAME
Calumet, Mich., Dec. 31. The in
quest was delayed several hours this
morning at the request of Attorney
O. N. Hilton, representing the Fed
eration. Coroner Fisher ordered the delay
on the promise of Hilton to produce
witnesses who would positively iden
tify the man who yelled "Fire." Hil
ton's announcement caused a sensa

force their way into the town hall
where the inquest is being held.
Fearing violence if the evidence
promised by Hilton was given, the
coroner transferred the hearing to
his office. Only witnesses, attorneys
and jurymen will be admitted.

Yesterday eight witnesses testified
that the man who shouted "Fife" and
started the panic Christmas eve wore

Other witnesses said the cry came
from within the hall, and a number
of them said they saw no button.
Mrs. Theresa Czabo, Charles 01
sen and Hilda Forsten were positive
they saw a man wearing an Alliance
button come to the door, wave hi3
hands and shout "Fife."

solicitor from Washington, has had

asking for the names of the mem
bers of the grand jury. It is .thought
he wants to get an idea as to how the
jury is made up.
The mine managers are stubbornly
determined to drive the Western
