IGNORED BY HIS GOVERNMENT.
Dr. Herran Preparing to Close Colom
Washington, Nov. 20.Dr. Thomas
Herran, the Colombian charge, and
Senor Brigard, the Colombian consul
general at New York, are winding up
the affairs of the Colombian legation
here preparatory to its closure. From
the present course of events Dr. Her
ran feels that the closing of his lega
tion is only a question of time. He
has been apparently ignored by his
government, which has refused to an
swer his cablegrams or advise him at
all regarding the isthmian situation.
If it shall be found that his cable
grams have been held up this will be
a satisfactory explanation to Dr. Her
ran. This is the only possible ex
planation of the attitude of the Colom
bian government toward its legation
Dr. Herran is appreciative of the
many exnressions of symnathv whie}

CUBAN RECIPROCITY BILL.
Final Day's Debate on Measure In the
Washington, Nov. 20.The final
day's debate on the Cuban reci
procity measure in the house was
opened by Mr. Broussard (Dem.,
La.). He opposed the measure
and said it was not in line with Demo
cratic tariff reform. The trust, he
said, would_pxofit by the reduction of
the tariff on sugar and no benefits
would accrue to the consumer.
Mr. Hepburn (Rep., la.) followed,
stating at the outset of his remarks
that he would vote for the bill, but
with i-eluctance. He said he was not
one of those who believed we owe
Cuba anything. This country had
spent $300,000,000 or $400,000,000 and
sacrificed many lives that Cuba might
be relieved from oppression.
Mr. Hepburn said he believed in Re
publican reciprocitythe reciprocity
of McKinley. In this connection he
quoted from the speech made by the
late president at Buffalo.

TEAMSTERS CALLED OUT.
Supplies for Street Railway Company
Chicago. Nov. 20.Renewal of hos
tilities between the City Railway com
pany and the employes of that asso
ciation began early in the day, follow
ing the failure of attempts at arbitra
tion. The first development in the
warfare was the strike of all the team
sters in the employ of the company.
In all sixty drivers quit work.
The strike of the teamsters was in
obedience to the command of the
Teamsters' Joint council. It Is the in
tention of the Teamsters' union, if pos
sible, to prevent the delivery of coal
and supplies to the railway company
and the operation of its repair wagons.
Thus far the company has been able
to keep three days' supply of coal in
its bins and no fear is admitted by the
officials that there is danger of the
powerhouses having to be shut down
from lack of fuel.
The action of the joint council was
taken, according to the official records,
because Edward Dwyer. a member of
the Teamsters' union, refused to haul
nonunion electric workers in his wag
on and was thereupon discharged.
Dwyer is secretary for the Street Car
The tieup on the Halstead Street
line of the Chicago City railway was
broken during the day by placing in
commission five cars. This is the
fourth line to be opened and operated
in a limited way.
Limited service on the Indiana, Cot
tage Grove? Avenue and Went worth
Avenue lines was maintained during
the day with little trouble. Police de
tails, accompanied each car and each
train sent out, but the force of patrol
men stationed along the three lines
previously opened was materially re
duced to provide protection for the
Halstead Street line, which traverses
a district in which trouble is believed
to be more likelv to occur.

ALLEGED WORK OF THE MAFIA.
Italian Slashed to Pieces on the Streets
Minneapolis, Nov. 20.With twenty
one gaping stiletto wounds all over
his body Salvador Battalia, an Italian,
was found lying In a pool of blood on
the Franklin avenue bridge shortly
That robbery was not the motive Is
clearly evident as $65 was found on
the dead man's person untouched. The
Instigation of the Mafia Is suggested
by the authorities as a possible ac
counting for the murder.
Battalia had a revolver in his hip
pocket, but evidently had been ap
proached from behind and struck In
the back before he could draw upon
his assailants. He had done his best
to ward off the blows for his hands
were sliced to ribbons.
The blood trails on the bridge prove
that the man made desperate resist
