Roosevelt Denounced foi* His Attack
Oll Iilthor Leader.
The declaration that President
Roosevelt is behind the Western
mine owners and state authorities nt
Colorado and Idaho in an alleged
movement to "railroad" Moyer, Hey
ward and Pettibone, of the Western
F?d?ration of Minors, to the gallows,
was appla?dcd vociferously Sunday
by Hie Chicago Federation of Labor.
In thc most dramatic speech that
has been delivered before that body
in many years Edward Morgan, a
member of the Western Federation,
bitterly denounced tho president. His
speech was followed by the adoption
of resolutions scoring the president
for classing Heyward with B. H. llar
riman and other capitalists.
"God forbid that lt ls true!'" shout
ed Morgan, "but lt almost seems that
behind the millions of Rookfellor and
the Standard Oil company, behind the
millions of mine owners, stands the
strong right arm of the chief execu
tive of the nation, saying: '(Jo to lt.
Fall upon your prey like vultures,
and I will sit by and grin whllo you
gurgle in their blood.'
"For seventeen years tho Western
Federation of Miners, with their
blood blazed the way for organized
labor in Hie West. Now, the minc
owners, backed hy the stato authori
ties, are thirsting for rcvongo. I can
see William D. Haywood, the man
who refused to bo bought or to bend
the knee of implication, forfeiting his
life on the gallows for tho loyalty he
bore to lils fellows He refused to
make peace, refused to clink glasses
with tho mino owners, and now they
have hatched this conspbicy to gol
him by other methods. And they
will hang him unless the working
class of this country riso up from
ocean to ocean and demands that
justice be done."

Tho Time in Hooding Hooks and
Most men find lt difficult to get the
required eight hours sleep lu every
twenty-four. Few aro able to livo
and work on less than tho allotted
number of hours that should be giv
en to rest. One man, however, Wil
liam Warner, who resides a few
miles from Great Harrington, Mass.,
comes forward with the startling
statement that during the past 30
years ho has not closed his eyes to
sleep. He is sixty years of age and
in robust health. His physicians can
assign no reason for his long period
of insomnia. Mr. Warner insists
that his statement is true and ls
willing to have any and all comers
investigate and see for themselves.
Mr. Warner was horn in New Marl
boro, Mass., a few miles from the
place where he now resides. Ho is
a farmer and spends his days work
ing In tho fields. At night ho goes
to bed about midnight, taking books
and papers with him. There he reads
and rests until dawn appears, when
he arises and goes about his duties
on the farm. He never sleeps, but
goes to bed for the purpose of rest
ing his body. Mr. Warner ls a veter
an of the Civil war, having served lu
Company F, Second artillery.
In his younger days he had one
romance. The day for his wedding
was set and all was in readiness for
his marriage, when the brlde-to-bo
tied by night and nothing since has
been heard of her. For years Mr.
Warner lived in the hopes of her re
turn and often sat at the window
watching for the coming of his sweet
heart. Ho is still a bachelor. About
30 years ago be suffered a severe Ill
ness and since that time he has not
been able to sleep. He was ht the
grove near his home when he became
unconscious. He remained in this
stale for days. When he recovered
the past was a blank to him. Ho
had forgotten everything that had
gone before, but ho could not sleep.
He is as young and active as a man
of H> years. He stands six feet In
his stockings. Warner has made a
success of farming and has a largo
trade n vegetables and other produce.
Within a short distance of his
home ls a cometary where his ances
tors for several generations are bur- '
