Up t the Court,
Bucyrus, O,, May 30. Prosecuting
Attorney Carl Htnkle, when asked as
to the result of the investigation into
the Ohio Central railway ouster case
and the report made by the jury, said
any future development will have to
be instituted by the court, and he is
ready to piosecute any case brought.
Judge Tobias, who authorized the in
vestigation, may take some action,

Grand Jury at Bucyrus Reports as to
Bucyrus, O., May 29. The report ot
the grand jury, which was ordered
by Judge J. C. Tobias, to look Into
the settlement of the ouster cases
gainst the Ohio Central railway, has
been made. The case was brought In
1901 on iust ructions secured by Pros
ecuting Attorney Charles Gullinger
from the county commissioners, ou the
ground that the railway company was
violating the anti-trust law by com
bining with a parallel line. At the
same time suits were brought In Hock
lug county against the Hocking Valley
Hallway company and In Perry county
against the Sunday Creek Coal com
pany. The report of the jury says that
while the cause ot action was good
there was another motive back of the
suits aad that none of the objects of
the suit could be attained; that Frank
S. Monuett, former attorney general
of Ohio, was the Instigator of the
suits and the chief counsel; that he
suggested a settlement of the cases and
that the journal entry made at the
time of the settlement was never sub
mitted to or approved by the court;
that the attorneys In the case received
$2,000 for their services, which the
jury finds no authority for under the
statutes or decisions ot court. It avers
that all the cases were settled at the
same time and that F. S. Monnett re
ceived as his portion of the tees ?1,
324.23. Finiay and Gallinger and Pugh
and Pugh also were compensated, each
lirm receiving a like amount. The
jury also found that two personal dam
age cases against the Ohio Central
and brought by these attorneys, were
settled at the sume time.
The testimony was finished Monday
afternoon by Judge Xorrls, who was
the presiding judge at the time of the
settlement. Frank S. Monnett was
wanted for further examination, but
could not be located.

time for the second semi-annual In
stallment of the tax comes around it
is believed that an additional 20 per
cent of the saloons will be compelled
to stop doing business. Fully GOO sa
loons closed, most of them being In
the outlying districts of the city.

Coal Operators and Mine Workers
Read) an Agreement.
TO RESTORE SCALE OF 1903
Miners Agree to Pay the Wages of
Shotflrers and to Ask for Repeal of
the Law Break In Strike In Pan
handle District Ohio Miners Will
Chicago, May 29. Coal operators
In Illinois have decided to yield to the
demands ot the minors for the scale
of 199S. The question of a settlement
is declared to be a uiattor of detail
and by the beginning of next week
mining will be rosumed In Illinois
with union men. Iu return for thu
restoration of the 1903 scale of wages
the Illinois miners have agreed to pay
the wages of shot flrers and to ask for
the repeal of the law by the next legis
lature. Thoy havo agreed also to in
demnify the operators for the loss sus
tained through the action of pit com
mittees lu calling unauthorized strikes.
This latter griovanco was one of the
most serious objections the operators
had against the union. Uuder the new
agreement the uulou will be respons
ible for the conduct of the miners and
guarantees that no such strikes will be
permitted lu the future.
At a conference here between rep
resentatives of the Ohio and Illinois
operators the latter asked to be re
leased from their agreement not to
settle with the miners until a settle
ment should be reached also In Ohio
and Indiana. The request was granted,
leaving the Illinois operators free to
settle with the union miners. The
scale committee of the operators and
miners will meet in Springfield and
submit a report to the joint convention
Wednesday which will, it is believed,
end the long suspension.
Break In Miners' Strike.
Steubenville, O., May 29. The first
break Iu the miners' strike In the Pan
handle district occurred when several
of the miners of the Hinchman Coal
company at Benwood, members of the
United Mine Workers, entered the
mine and resumed work. The failure
ot the United Mine Workers to con
tinue the payment of strike benefits is
the cause of the defection, which it
is thought, will spread and especially
among the foreign workers. It is re
ported that the eastern Ohio "stand
pat" operators will place the mines ot
the Provident Coal company at St.
Clalrsville at work with non-union
Ohle Miners Call Convention,

Green, Vice President D. H. Sullivan
and Secretary Tieasurer O. W. Sav
age. Thei Is nothing in the an
nouncement to warrant a prediction as
to the probable action which the min
ers will take, but It is expected that
It will lead to a settlement of differ
ences in Ohio.

and were given their meals ut tho

fiercely. Of course the others would
all leave their food to see what the
disturbance was. Old Fan would
then positively ily baek to the puns,
gobble up all the food, and when Ihe
other dogs returned to finish their
meal everything would be eaten. "So
the poor dogs got none." Time and
again she would do this, until some
one would have to remain with them
until they were all through eating.
At a Young Folks' Party,
A pretty and unique way to "pair
off couples" for supper at a young
folks' party is suggested here. Pass
to the guests two baskets of flowers,
ono to the girls and tho other to
the boys, and request each to select
one. There may bo roses, carna
tions, violets any flowers that the
young hostess sees fit to supply. To
the stems of the flowers are tied
with tiny ribbons small cards bear
ing the names of noted characters in
fiction or history. The boy drawing
the card bearing the name Romeo
must hunt for the girl on whoso
card is the name Juliet. Pocahontas
is sought by John Rolph, John Al
den seeks out his demure Priscilla,
Hamlet his Ophelia, etc.

It Foretells Woather.
Do you wish to gain a reputation
as a weather prophet? Watch tho
clouds, says an old sailor, or, rather,
ono cloud. Pick out the smallest-
cloud you can see and keep your eyo
on it. If it diminishes and disap
pears it shows a slate of tho air that
is almost sure to be followed by fair
weather. But if it increases in size
falling weather will not bo far off.
Tho reuson is this: When tho air
is becoming charged with electricity
you will seo every cloud attracting
all less ones toward it, till it gathers
into u shower. And, on the contrary,
when tho fluid is passing off or dif
fusing itself even u largo cloud will
be seen breaking to pieces and dis
solving. Recreation From Golf.

now for recreation from golf."

CHASE FOR RICHES.
We sail across the ocean,
We chase about the land,
.Wo cross the boundless prairie.
We bravo the desert sand.
We dig into the mountains,
We dale the northern cold.
And nil to capture dollars
To get a bunch of gold.
We set up In tho morning
And spend the day In toil.
And then we keep ou slaving;
ISeneath the midnight oil.
For In tho iush for riches
We never want to quit
Until wo' have tho treasure
Securely in our mitt.
We seek some savage country
Or fever ludened coast.
We walk the dread Death valley,
Where weather comes on toast;
Wo climb a live volcano
And peer down In the pit.
And If we ee a nugget
We dive in after it.
We overlook the sunsets,
Wo miss tho baby's smile,
Wo miss the April blossoms
And other things worth while,
And then to cap tho climax,
To top the tale of woe,
Iu splto of all our striving
We do not got the dough.

A pound of worry,
