Large and Juicy One Hamletl Out by
the Switchmen's Union.
Detroit, Mich, The biennial con
vention of the Switchmen's Union cf
North America adopted a resolution
- against the "kidnaping" of Mover,
Haywood and Pettibone and request
ing President Roosevelt to use all leg
itimate means in his power to secure
a reversal of the recent decision "leg
alizing the kidnaping. The resolu
tion was adopted unanimously by the
250 delegates who are present from
every state in the union, representing
a membership of 23,000.
The resolution declares that "all
laws relative to the protection and
liberty of all American citizens in pro
curing defense were denied these
brothers by the governors of Colorado
and Idaho," and that their removal
to the scene of the Stuenenberg mur
der constituted a pure and simple
case of kidnaping."
The resolution continues:
"And, whereas, President Roose
velt has seen fit to use the public
.- press in expressing sentiments that
Moyer, Haywood and Pettibone were
'undesirable citizens' and previously
referred to the Western Federation of
Miners' official as having been im
plicated in the murder; and
"Whereas, Such statements stand
without precedent in the civilized
"Whereas, We believe said state
ments will affect these brothers in

"Resolved, That the Switchmen's
Union of North America, in conven
tion assembled, denounces the series
of outrages instituted against these
brothers, believing it a serious blow
to American citizenship and good
government; be it further
Resolved, That a copy of these re
solutions be forwarded to President
Roosevelt requesting that he use all
the legitimate means in his power to
compel the courts to reverse the re

of these brothers and obey the intent
of the constitution as to the rights of
Copies were ordered forwarded to
governors of Idaho and Colorado and

M'CORMICK FOR REEDER'S JOB.
Sixth District Democrats Grooming
the PhlUlpsburjr Man.
Harry Root, in his Sixth district
notes, has felt of the democratic
pulse, and gives out the following
prognosis of the case:
"The democrats of the Sixth district
are on the alert. Some of them be
gin to snuff victory in 190 8. Ex-Congressman
N. B. McCormick of Phil
lips county may get Into the congres
sional race. At least a representa
tion of democrats from Sherman,
Thomas, Graham and Rawlins coun
ties met some of the democrats of
Phillips county, in Phillipsburg, and
the question of how a democrat can
beat Congressman Reeder was gone
over in all its phases. McCormick
was the man who can do it, these
representative democrats claimed.
Since his defeat for a second term h
has kept out of politics, attended
strictly to law, and built up a fine
practice, in fact he is making more
money than he can get out of the sal
ary of a congressman. The demo
crats seem to think they see trouble
ahead for the machine and square
deal factions of republicans, and a po
litical tidal wave will engulf these
factions in 190S, and in this event a
democrat will succeed the republican,
and his name is likely to be McCor
mick." Eva Booth's Policeman.
"You are under arrest! Tou are
disturbing the peace." snarled a po
liceman, breaking off her first pubilc
praper in the streets of London. She
vas still in her early 'teens, a slight
slip of a girl with no means of resis
tance, and as the bullying officer
tightened his grip on her arm, she
was dragged shrinklngly with him.
But the action aroused the sym
pathies of the rough crowd as a light
ed match fires a keg of gunpowder.
In an instant the policeman and his
prisoner were surrounded, and be
fore the officer could raise his. voice
he was beaten to the pavement under
a shower of fists.
It was the girl prisoner who, for
getting his rough trip and the cell to
which he would have drargd her,
appealed to the throng In his defense.
"When the crowd finally retreated, the
policeman was groaning with two
broken legs and a mass of bruises
from head to foot.
For weeks the little girl in the big
Army bonnet paid faithful visits to
the helpless man in the hospital, and
when he was released, a warmer
friend Eva Booth and her cause could
, not have found in all England. To
' this day she receives letters in a
rough, sprawling hand signed simply.

TRAINS TO RUN SLOWER.
The Time From Chicago West Length
ened dj- Agreement.
-nieago. May 2 3. After discuss
ing the question several weeks, the
western rauroad3 have reached an
agreemnt to lengthen the schedule of
ineir tnrough passenger trains. All
me roaas win put a new schedule in
to effect June 9 by which the mini
mum time of passenger trains between
here and Omaha will be fourteen
hours and thirty minutes, which is
two hours more than the runnis time
now or the fastest trains to Omxha.
"i; minimum iime Detween uaioa-
go ana Aansaj City will aiso be t--:
teen nours and thirty minutes. The
average running time now of the fast
est trains i3 thirteen hours and ."h.'r
ty minutes. The minimum timft of
passenger trains between here and
Denver, now twenty-seven hours and
thirty minutes, will be thirty-two
hours after June 8.
The greatest stumbling block en
countered by the railway officials in
trying to reach an a?ro'iniiiit for
Flower train schedules has resn as
to the minimum time ol passer.gei
t ains between St, Louis ani Uanver.
This has been settled by adapting a
minimum standard of twenty -nine
hours, which is one hour more lhan
the present schedule of tin Chicago.
Burlington & Qulncy's fastest trains
between St. Louis and Denver.
The only schedules to be adjusted
now are between Chicago and San
Francisco. It is probable that thev
will be lengthened at least four hours.
The western railway officials assert
mat the present schedules ara safe,
but are not for economical opera
tion. EXPRESS COMPANIES QUIT.
Discontinues the C. O. D. Whiskv
Packages in Kansas.
The Wells Fargo Emress comoanv
has given notice that no more C. O.
D. liquor shipments will be received
for Kansas after the 1st of June. The
railway station in a great many places
for years past has been nothing less
than a common Joint, and most of the
liquor was handled on the C. O. D.
plan, those distributing it being a
grade of bootleggers who were not
able to pay for a box or Jug of liquor
only as they gathered up the amount
among their associates.
This condition became so unbear
able that a number of depots in the
state have been raided by the officials
ana the stock of liquors taken In
charge. In some places $300 or $400
worth of liquors were secured in this
way. Such raids upon the depot were
made at Syracuse and at Meade.
The attitude of the Kansas people
toward this kind of business has had
its effect upon the Wells Fargo com
pany and they have delivered the
above order, to receive no more C. O.
D. shipments for the state of Kansas
after June 1. It is expected that oth
er express companies doin business
m the state will give like orders and
that this form of violation of the pro
hibitory law will no longer trouble
the people of our state.
Some are inclined to look upontthis
movement as a voluntary act upon the
part of the express companies, and it
is perhaps still an open question as to
whether it is a violation of law or not-
The recent decision rendered by the
supreme court on the Kansas law may
cover that point holding that the sale
is made where the money is paid over.
Is this be true the handling of C. O.
D. shipments and receiving the mon
ey for them would be a direct viola
tion of the law.

Nemesis of the Great Preacher, Theo
dore Tilton. Dead in Paris.
Paris, May 25. Theodore Tilton
died in this city this afternoon. He
had been unconscious for hours be
fore he passed away..
Mr. Tilton s last Illness was very
brief. Wednesday he took his cus
tomary walk, and when he returned
he mounted the five flights of stains
to the apartment of Miss Fuller,
where he resided; he then complain
ed of fatigue and went to bed. A phy
sician diagnosed his illness as pneu
monia. No definite arragements regarding
the funeral have yet been made, ex
cept that the service will be held
Monday in the American church. Mr.
Tilton's children in America will de
cide whether his body will be ship
ped to the United States.
Theodore Tilton, author and jour
nalist, was born in New York in 1835.
He was successively editor of the In
dependent, the Golden Age and the
Brooklyn Union. In lS74 Mr. Tilton
sued Henry Ward Beecher for $100,-
000 damages for alienation of Mrs.
Tilton's affections. The trial lasted
112 days and resulted in a disagree
ment. Mr. Tilton lived in Paris since
188S. For some days past he had
been suffering from double pneu
monia, complicated with heart trou

Theodore Tilton probably will be
buried in Paris. Mrs. Pelton. one or
his daughters, when informed of her
father's death, said it is not contem
plated to bring the body to this coun
try. She also said that it would be
impossible for her to go to Paris to
attend the funeral, and that it is un
likely that her sister or any other cf
Mr. Tilton's relatives now here would
be able to go.
