SECRETARY
HAS SAID NO
Fisher Flatly Refuses to
Tie Up Yosemite
Water Power.
Washington. Nov. 26. Secretary
Fisher of the interior department to
day flatly refused to permit San
Francisco to "tie up indefinitely" tho
Hetch-lletchy water power privileges
In Yosemite National park by any
stipulation in the permit for the uso
of Hotch-Hotchy valley that would al
low tho city to hold the power priv
ileges to suits Its own convenience.
The hearing on the city's right to
use tho great valley part of Its water
system today revolved' largely around
the water power question and tho pos
sible alternate sources of water sup
ply for San Francisco, such as the
Sacramento river
John R Freeman of Providence,
general consulting engineer in charge
of the San Francisco aqueduct project,
estimated that tho Sacramento rlvor
source would cost the city from $20,
000,000 to $30,000,000 moro than tho
Wtob-LIctchy valley project Tho fact
was brought out, however. rbHt Ibe
cost of the Sacramento project was
o na basis of n feupply of 1SO.000.000
gallons and tho Hetch-lletchy projoct
on a basis of 400.000.000 gallons.
Mr. Freeman was given a fortnight
to submit a comparative estimate of
tho different projects.
Secretary Fisher stated during the
hearing that while he would not agree
lo anything that would lock up the
Hetch-Hotchy water power, ho would
personally favor giving the water pow
er freo (o tho city of San Francisco If
thoy proposed to develop It immedi
ately for municipal purposes.
"tl Is to public interost," Secretary
Fisher said, "that tho hydro-eloctrlc
power bo developed to take tho place
of coal, oil and other fuel. If San
Francisco will agree to devolop it
within a reasonable period, I favor
that dovolopment of water power
without charge to the city, doBpllo the
urgent need of rovenuo for the na
tional parks."

that ho Is a freo man he says he was
Innocent of tho crime."

Ettor, the leader of the strike at
Ijiwrence, and chief center of Intoreat
in a caso that has aroused world-wldo
attontlon, addres&ed tho Jury:
"May It pleaso tho court." ho said.
I thank you not only for mysolt but
In tho names of my companions. I
also feel Impelled to thank tho court
for the fair manner In which this trial
has been conducted. Thanks we offer
aro not only oum. but thanks in the
name of the working class."
Tho Jury entered tho court room nt
S:20 o'clock Immediately thereafter
the prisoners, each wearing a rod car
nation, were brought lo tho cage in the
center of the room. All were smiling.
Judge Quinn ascended tho bench at
S:25 and asked If the Jury had agreed
upon a verdict.
"Wo have," said the foreman as ho
handed it to tho court bailiff.
"Joseph Caruso, stand up," com
manded Clerk George.
As Caruso obeyed the clerk called:
"Caruso, faco tho Jury; Jurymen,
look at the prisoner. Gontlomen of
the Jury, is Joseph Caruso guilty or

another Indictment against him, charg
ing him with assault with a deadly
weapon with Intent to kill and that the
court would rolease him on his recog
nlzanco. Tho prisoner had taken to
oath to appear In court when sum

who wus waiting at the rail behind
the prisoner's cage, fell into his arms
and a dozen of his maJe companions
rushed forward and kissed him.
Ettor and Giovannitti Also Held.
Kttor and Giovannitti also were
held on another indictment charging
tliein, together with William D. Hay
wood of tho Industrial Workers of the
World, and others with conspiracy
to Incite riot In the Lawrenco strike.
On this they were released on bonds
of $500 each, which were furnished
by Helen S. Dudley of Boston.
The Lawrence strlko leaders were
then freed from the prisoner's cage
and besieged by a crowd ot mon and
women in tho court room. For several
minutes they were recipients of kisses
from tho men and congratulations
from the women.
"I havo no immediate plans." said
Ettor, "but I am going as soon as pos
sible to my home in Tacoina. Wash.,
where I have nn invalid father. He

The trinl of Joseph J. Ettor, mem

denly precipitated Junuary 12 last ami
continued for two months.
Ettor and Giovannitti wore accused
as accessories beforo the fact to the
murder of Anna Loplzzo. who was
killed In a street riot. Tho common
wealth maintained that they Incited
tho riot in which the woman met her
doath br inflammatory speeches to
tho strikers. Caruso was accused,
with Salvatore Sculto, who never has
been apprehended, with actual parti
cipation In the riot.
The strike, which was accompa
nied by much violence, enlisting or
ganized and unorsanizod workers on
ono hand and mill owners on tho oth
er, with tho police of Lawrence and
militia of Massachusetts on guard to
avert disastrous conscquoncos. attrac
ted world-wide attention for many
weeks. Riots woro frequent; cars In
Lawrence were attacked; mon, wom
en and children who attempted lo
work wore assailed and In some cases
Injured, and there were repeated
clashos betweon strikers and the or
ganized forcoa of the law until cit
izens of Lawrenco were alarmed at
tho threatening struggle. Its climax
came on January 29, a day bogun
with a parade of agitated foreign
workers to demonstrate their solid
arity against the mill owners, aud
ended with a riot In which tho young
woman was .slain and Oscar Benoit,
a Lawrence policeman, Btabbed.
Appeal to Congreao,
Even congress was appealed to du
ring tho strugglo following an at
tempt ot strike leadors to tako from
Lawrenco to Philadelphia a hundred
children ot strikers' families to bo
cared for by sympathizers. This ef
fort, preceded by successful doporta
tion of strikers' children to Now York
and othor cities, was frustrated by tho
pollco In a clash at tho railroad sta
tion In which fatheru, mothers and
children clashed with tho authori
ties. Many mon and women were arrest
ed. This occurrence, widely herald
ed, aroused protests from all parts
of tho United States and prompted
Victor Borger, Socialist member of
tho House of Representatives, to plan
a congressional Investigation of the
strlko and working conditions In tho
mills of the American Woolen com
pany and others. A resolution di
recting such an Inquiry brought about
a preliminary hearing before the rules
committee of tho liouso In which
Lawrenco strikers, mon, women and
children, representatives of the mill
owners aud rpprcsentatlves of tho
Lawrence authorities. participated.
The hearings wero held In the caucus
room of the house office building In
Washington and arooncd inlenso In
terest, hundreds of persons, including
Mrs. Taft, wlfo of the president, at
tending them for several days. No
congressional action, however, was
recommended.
Tho strike began on January 12,
whon workers in mills of tho Ameri
can Woolen company left their looms
in protest against a reduction with
out notice of two hours' pay a week
In consequence of thero going Into
effect a new state law restricting la
bor to 51 hours a week. Rioting about
tho mill gates Immediately followed,
and on tho following day Ettor, a
young Italian-American labor leader
from Pennsylvania, went to Lawrence
to take charge of the strike for the
Industrial Workers of the World and
to organize the dissatisfied and unor
ganized army of laborers.
Thirty Thousand Idle.
By January 15 30,000 persons wore
Idle; tho mills were closed; special
pollco were sworn In to aid tho reg
ular force In preserving order; state
troops were ordered to Lawrence by
Governor Foss and an Industrial cri
sis v.ns at hand.
Ettor, assuming command of tho
workers" cause, announced that the
strikers demauded a wage Increase of
15 por cent, abolition of the promlum
system and doublo pay for overtime.
Numerous conferences woro held with
state bodies and milL owners and a
strlko committee was organized,
headed by Ettor and composed of rep
resentatives of each nationality in
volved In the conflict, Including the
Italians, who were most numerous;
Poles. Syrians, Lithuanians, He
brows, Americans and others.
During the progress of tho troublo
Ettor frequently addressed the mass
es In churches, halls and on the Law
rence common. In keeping up the
enthusiasm thus he was aided by Ar
turo 'Giovannitti, who wont to Law
rence from Brooklyn; William D.
Haywood, tho leader of the Industrial
Workers of tho World, and many oth
crn prominent In the work of tho or
ganization. --- "
For many days the situation in
Lawrence was tense, with outbreaks
of violenco constantly agitating tho
public mind. On January 20 seven
sticks of dynamite were found by
the police In houses and shops In the
Italian quarter Suspicion against tho
strikers was directed at once, and six
persons, Italians and Syrians, were
arrested. Ettor was Informed by Col
onel E. Leroy Sweetser of his grave
responsibility in the matter. Ettor
immediately told tho strikers that
none of their people had, anything
to do with the dynamite nnd charged
that the mill owners had planted It
to prejudice the cause of the strik
ers. Subsequent Investigation resulted In
the conviction of a Lawrence school
commissioner forv planting tho dyna
mite. Later business men and Wil
liam M. Wood, president of the Amer
ican Woolen company, were Indict
ed for conspiracy to plant dynamite
In Lawrence. Trial of these cases Is
pending. This development served to
Intensify the bitterness of tho con
flict and Lawrence was at fever heat
Conferences to settle the strlko had
failed, and on tho morning of Jan. 29
an organized street parade and d?u
onstratlon by the strikers occurred. It
was preceded by rioting before sun
rise in which the street cars were
pelted with chunks of Ice nnd other
missiles and persons forcibly prevent
ed from going to work In tho mills.
After the parade Ettor and Qiovannlt
tl addressed tho strikers In Lawrenco
common, where they are alleged to
havo urged the strikers to acts of vi
olence. That evening the streets near
tho mills were jammed with the Idle
mill workers. Soldiers and police
were ordered to clear tho streets Tho
spirit of the hour was a dangerous
one. The people sullenly responded
to tho ordors of the police and hissed
them. .Many blocks of Ice wore thrown
at tho officers of the law Pollceraon's
clubs. In retaliation, were wielded
over tho backs of recalcitrant strik
ers, when suddenly shooting began
and Anna Loplzzo fell lifeless In the
street. Other riots followed the next
day and that midnight Ettor and Gio
vannitti were arrestod. charged with
being accessories before the fact to
tho Loplzzo murder Liter Caruso
was arrested, charged with Salvatoro
Sculto. as ono of the principals to the
crime as an' nctual participant In tho
fatal riot.
Foreigners Furious.
The arrest of Ettor and Giovannitti
fanned to a fury tho flamo of feeling
anions the agitated foreigners and
conditions were oven more dangerous.
Threats wero made of a general strlko.
organizations throughout tho country
and In other lands protesting against
the action of the authorities. Ettor
and Giovannitti pleaded not guilty on
Januarv 31, but woro hold to tho grand
Jury without bill and locked up lu tho
Lawrence Jail until Fobruary 9. when,
after a hearing,, thoy woro held to tho
grand jury and later Indicted. Tho
strlko continuod under tho leadership
now of W. D. Haywood until March 14.
when tho cause of tho workers was
victorious nnd tho strlko was officially
declared off. Tho workers gained In
creases In pay ranging from 7 to 15
por cent and concesfons In working
conditions
Many Countries Raise Fund.
Indictment of tho strike leaders nrd
Cnrupo brought about an organized,
world-wldo effort to raise a dofense
fund and workors from many coun
tries responded. Threats of a gonoral
world strike in protest against tho ac-
tion again wore made, and since the
beginning of the trial Lawrenco has
been flooded denouncing the agents
of tho courts and the conditions of
tho caso. Threats to storm tho jail
havo been made and feeling has run
riot up to the very close of the case. '
When the trial -egan a twenty-four-hour
strike cf protest was responded
to by 50,000 workers in mills through

NEW TRIAL
OF KOREANS

Begins With 105 De
fendants Present
j Feared Torture.
Seoul. Korea, Nov. 2C. Tho new
trial on appeal of tho 10C Koreans
charged with conspiring In 1910 and
1911 against the life of Count Tcrau
chl, Japanese governor general of
Korea, began here today. Ono hun
dred and flvo of the accused were
present, tho other prisoner being ill.
About a dozen missionaries, a num
ber of the prisoners' relatives and
other spectators occupied the space
outside the bar.
Baron Yun Chi Ho, a former Ko
rean cabinet minister, who had been
sentenced to a term of ten years'
imprisonment at tho first trial, was
tho first examined. He explained
that the confession he made last
March, admitting complicity in the
conspiracy and implicating six lead
ers, was Induced by fear of torture,
which tho police, he said, had threat
ened, and by his understanding that
the six Implicated men had already
beon convicted.
The remainder of the afternoon was
occupied by Tho examination of Kl
mlljun, who confessed complicity at
the former trial. His examination,
also, was left unfinished, but the
trend of his answers appeared to in
dicate he is preparing to withdraw
his former evidence.
At the first trial on September 28
Baron Yun Chi Ho and four others
wero sentenced to terms of ten years,
and 101 prisoners were sent up for
rcrlods varying from fie to seven
