DERBY HORSES IN HARD SHAPE
The Picket Ran His Winning Race While in Crippled
Special to The Globe.
CHICAGO, June 21.—The Picket,
winner of the American Derby, met
with an accident at the start of the
great race Saturday. Either by strik
ing himself or from a kick, the left
fore leg of the wonderful colt w ras hit
and bruised. His trainer, Carroll Reid,
was concerned today as to the possible
effect the injury might have on the
future races of the son of Falsetto.
There was a report out tonight that
an offer of $30,000 has been ml.de for
The Picket by Louisville people. Car
roll Reid, trainer of The Picket, could
not confirm the report. Trainer Reid
believes the accident will not impair
the speed of the colt, and if it were an
ordinary selling plater the matter
probably w 7ould not bother him. To
have so valuable a colt as T^he Picket
troubled with a swollen leg is a differ
There are other big races coming for
which The Picket is eligible, but he
will be rested until the trainer knows
beyond all doubt that the leg is per
fectly well. Just how The Picket was
injured is a mystery. It certainly did
not happen after he took the lead, be
cause he was never interfered with nor
off his stride after he once went to the
front. The leg was probably hurt
either while the horses were at the
post or in the first few jumps after the

CARRIE NATION LOSES TO JACK FLYNN
Kansas Smasher Delivers a Tirade in a Wabasha Street Establishment and Is
Routed by a Siphon of Seltzer.
Carrie Nation was in town yester
day. She made her presence known in
less than three minutes after her ar
rival in the heart of the city.
Mrs. Nation was on her way frorh
Minneapolis to Stillwater via the in
terurban electric line. She had no
sooner alighted at the corner of Sev
enth and Wabasha streets to change
from the interurban to the Stillwater
line than she proceeded to do some*
practical temperance work in the short
time she had.
Getting off the car with a young
man companion, she espied across the
street the saloon of Himes & Mid
dlestaedt, 432 Wabasha street, which
was open and in and out of the front
door of which men were passing.
Turning to Patrolman Peterson, who
was standing at the corner, she in

"In about three minutes, madam,"
Little thinking that he was speak
ing to the famous saloon smasher, the
policeman turned about and did not
note her next movement.
"Wait for me," exclaimed Mrs. Na
tion to her companion. Thereupon she
made a bee line across the street and
entered the saloon. About ten men
were sitting at the tables and two
were standing at the bar.
Without warning, she opened a vig
orous temperance harangue. Walking
up and down she vehemently delivered
a torrent of hot invectives against the
men present and against Jack Plynn,
"Thieves, scoundrels, beasts!" she
cried. "How do you dare to sit there
and spend your money and ruin your
TO DIE TOGETHER
Bullet Ends His Life and Car
bolic Acid May Be Fatal
SCRAWTON, Pa., June"2l.—A pair
of young lovers, Ernest Schmic and
Miss Jennie Brennan, both of Green
wood, were the participants in a double
tragedy this morning, which has re
sulted in the former's death and which
will probably also prove fatal in the
case of the girl. The two had loved
each other devotedly for several
months, but another woman from
Schmic's old home interfered a week
ago, and sought to hold him to an al
leged engagement with her. This led
the pair to seek refuge in death and
they apparently planned tonight's affair
with much deliberation. Miss' Bren
nan purchased a bottle of carbolic acid
this morning and shortly afterwards
both started out for a walk. They
strayed to a secluded spot in the Wast
of a forest and spent the entire after
noon sitting side by side on a rock.
They were seen by several other ram
blers in the woods and this led to the
search by the girl's cousin, Thomas
Cavanaugh, and several of his friends.
When the party came in sight of the
place Miss Brennan put the bottle of
acid to her lips and drained it. As
she did so Schmic started to run, with
several of the party close on his heels.
He drew a revolver and fired upon
them three times and, then stopping,
turned the weapon to his heart and
shot himself twice. He fell dead in
stantly. The girl suffered great agony
and her physicians hold-out scant hope
AMALGAMATED C H \RGES
COURT WITH BIAS
Cases Involving the Company Taken
from Judge Clancy.
BUTTE, Mont., June 21.—1n proceed
ings that have been begun in the su
preme court -an attempt is being made
by the Amalgamated Copper company,
through charge of bias and prejudice,
to take mining litigation in which that
company is involved from the control
of District Judge Clancy. On applica
tion of the Amalgamated company
writs of supervisory control have been
issued by the supreme court in two
■pases of John McGinnis against the
(Boston & Montana company, the case
of Michael Hickey against the Ana
conda and Washae companies and in
the suit of the Nipper company against
the Parrot company.
In the petitions, in response to which
the writs were issued, a number of
statements are made in support of the
claim that Judge Clancy is biased in
favor of the interests of P. Augustus
Heinz and the Montana Ore Purchas
ing company as against the Amalga
mated interests. It is stated that the
judge is so prejudiced against the
Amalgamated Copper company that It
is impossible to obtain a fair and im
partial trial upon the matter in which
the Amalgamated company is directly
or indirectly interested.

TO BE SHELVED
He Says He Will Not Have the
Vice Presidency Forced
CLEVELAND, Ohio, June 21.—1n an
interview today Senator M. A. Hanna
reiterated his recent statement that he
is not and would not be a candidate for
the vice presidency, and if his nomina
tion was made he would decline to ac
cept it. He said further that his am
bitions did not lie in the direction of
the White house and that - aotiHag,

in the matter.
Col. Myron T. Herrick, whose name
also has been mentioned in connection
with the vice presidency, said that his
sole political ambition was to be elect
ed governor of Ohio. Col. Herrick
thinks that the whole discussion rela
tive to the vice presidential nomina
tion is inopportune.
When the action of President Roose
velt towards the vice presidential nom
ination was cited to him as an instance
of how public men sometimes change
their views with regard to political
nominations when the sentiment of the
people demanded it and they were
compelled to accept office, Senator
Hanna said that men in public life
who knew him know very well that
nothing can be forced upon him
IN WAR ON MAD MULLAH
Gen. Egerton With Troops From In-
dia Sent to Somaliland.
SIMLA, India. June 21.—Maj. Gen.
Charles Comyn Egerton. who has been
in command of the Punjab frontier
force since 1899, has been appointed to
the command of the Somaliland expe
ditionary force which is operating
against the Mad Mullah, superseding
Brig. Gen. W. H. Manning.
Gen. Manning, who took command of
the English expedition in Somaliland
last November, after a reverse suffered
"by Col. Swayne, has not proved suc
cessful in his campaign. Columns de
tached from the force have been bad
ly mauled by the Mullah's followers,
the most serious British defeat being
the ambushing of Col. Plunket's fly
ing detachment of 208 men, with two
Maxims, on April 17, when Col Plunk -
et, all his officers and practically the
entire force was wiped out. The last
day's advices received in London, June
14, were to the effect that Gen. Man
ning himself was surrounded, and un
able to assist Col. Cobb, whose col
umn was in a serious position at Cal
lady and on half rations.
One of the causes of the non-suc
cess of the expedition has been the
cowardice of the native Somali regi
ment, of which so much was hoped
when it was formed recently. Only a
few days ago the news came that thq
native camel corps had mutinied.
The operations against the Mad Mul
lah, who first raised the tribes against
the British in 1899, have already cost
$2,000,000. A desire has been mani
fested to abandon the campaign, but
in view of the predicament of Gen,
Manning's forces it has been found
necessary to order British troops from
India, and when they arrive the Brit
ish expedition in Somaliland will con
sist of 80 British, 1,200 Indian troops,
and 4,000 natives.

Can members of unions be held indi

held responsible in damages on the
theory laid down in the Taft-Vale de

may be construed to hold them respon

in a strike from patrolling the streets
or from soliciting any one not to go
to work to fill a striker's place. The
decision of Judge Holdom means ab
solute slavery and would work the de
struction of every trade union in the
United States if it were followed or
obeyed. As to contracts between trade
unions and employers doubtless there
is no way to compel their enforcement
I should say off hand that any man

"The strike began on March 30 and
involved about 17,000 operatives. The
mills were shut down until June 1,

The high prices of cotton precluded
any hope of the success of the strikers'
campaign for the 10 per cent increase."
