THREE ROASTED TO DEATH IN
Milwaukee, Wis., May 27. The
police and coroner today are trying to
determine whether the death of a
man and two women, who were found
literally roasted in a gas-filled house
late yesterday, was the result of a
triple suicide pact or a double mur
der and suicide.
The dead are: John A. Schneider,
55, a shoemaker; Mrs. Tillie Schnei
der, 50, his wife, and Mrs. Barbara
Pinski, 80, mother of Mrs. Schneider.
Every gas jet in the house had been
turned on and the heat from a gas
range, the only burners lighted, had
caused a temperature of 400 degrees.
The heat was so intense that die
bodies were blackened and blood was
-oozing from every pore. Schneider
'eft a note, asking that $100 coffins
'be provided for each of them.

ass'n and the union have not come to
terms, there are but 525 contractors
in the association, while 1,460 con
tractors, not members of the associa
tion have signed agreements giving
the carpenters what they want.
If these contractors could get ma
terial they could have every carpen
ter in the city at work in short order.
If the inside carpenters go back to
work these fair contractors will be
able to get the needed material.
The Carpenter Contractors' ass'n
today made a desperate but appar
ently ineffectual effort to gum the
plans of the Millmen's ass'n and the
inside workers. They realize that
peace for the millmen means their
It was reliably reported today that
the millmen employers are willing to
sign an agreement that would in 3
years increase the workers' wages
from 41 to 45 cents an hour and at
the same time reduce the day from
9 to 8 hours. The mill workers had
asked 50 cents in 3 years, but seem
disposed to compromise.
