died July 15 of apoplexy and was buried on
the island. During the latter part of July
friends of Mr. Morton In this city were
surprised and shocked to learn of his
serious illness in the Pribiloff islands. Only
the most meager details were obtainable.
Dispatches at that time indicated that Mr.
Morton's aliment was locomotor ataxia.
Instructions were at once sent from Wash
ington to Captain Roberts, of the revenue
cutter Manning, at Nome City, to bring
Mr. Morton back to San Francisco when
the vessel should return south in Septem

tftorts to forward relief to the stricken man

JUDGE ACTS SUDDENLY
J. W. STOKES. MISS LYONS AND MISS
FORREST BOPXD OVER.
Tbey Gnvr Evasive Answer to Ques
tions While on the Stnnd
After spending the greater part of the
alternoon in listening to the evidence in
the cases against J. W. Stokes. Miss Anna
Lyons and Edith Forrest, all charged with
conspiracy to commit a felony. Judge Daly
suddenly terminated the preliminary hear
ing by saying he had very decided opinions
regarding the guilt of the defendants and
bound all over to the grand jury.
The defendants were charged with solicit
ing fimds and selling tickets for a concert,
representing that the concert was for the
benefit of the Ladies' Aid Society, of the
Seventh Tresbyterlan Church, the Fresh
Air Fund of various charitable organiza
tions, and other societies. They had- a con
tract with Mrs. Edwards, of the 'Seventh
Presbyterian Church, for the concert, but
no other contracts.
The testimony of witnesses for the State
showed that the names of the various other
organizations were used by them in order
to secure subscriptions. This all of the de
fendants denied on the stand. The testi
mony of each was conflicting and their
answers were all evasive. The majority of
the questions were answered by "I don t
know" or I don t remember.
The young woman giving the name of
Edith Forrest is a sister to J. W. Stokes,
but her real name is Coleman, she having
married about a year ago after an ac
fiualntancc of a few hours with Coleman.
She became very indignant when asked by
iTosecutor uronniger relative to her mar
rlage and real name and refused to an
swer until ordered to do so by the court.
Witnesses said she claimed to be a mem
ber of the Ladies' Aid Society of the Sev
enth Presbyterian Church, but she denied
this and said she referred to a "Ladles' -Aid
Society" in Selma, Ala., where she claimed
formerly to have lived.
Henry Waterman, of Five Points, who
ftele a horse and buggy while he was" in
tcxicated. was bound over to the grand
Henry Bratt. on a charge of grand lar
ceny, was also bound over to the grand
jury. Others sent to the grand jury yes
terday were Robert Smith, for burglary.
and Pat ward, for assault and battery.

Sarah J. Bishop, in a suit brought yes
terday against M. T. Wilcox, a saloon
keeper, the Terre Haute Brewing Company,
and Maurice Donnelly, asks damages in the
sum of $-,000, because liquor was sold by
them to her husbad after being notltied by

12 he bought liquor of Wilcox and then
went home, and broke up the furniture and
assaulted her before their children.

Governor Mount yesterday issued the fol
lowing Iabor-day proclamation:
"The Congress of the United States and
the General Assembly of Indiana, having
designated the first Monday of September
of each year as Labor day, I deem it ex
pedient to officially call public attention to
the importance of a proper observance of
"This provision of law is to be highly
commended. Its purposes are both just and
wise. The toiling people represent the Na
tion's bulwark, and should be given their
Just meed of praise. Iabor feeds and
clothes the world. The products of indus
try alone can make us mighty in peace and
potent in war, for they create the Nation's
commerce and supply the munitions of
battle. We rejoice In the marvelous devel
opment of our country and the matchless
increase of our material possessions. The
census reports of 1S60 placed the wealth of
the United States at $16.000.000.000. Mr. Mul
hall, the English statistician, estimates our
wealth this year at $91,000.000,000. To the
worklngmen and women of America, in
great measure, belongs the honor of this
unparalleled growth. The output of manu
factured products of this country exceeds
by $350,000.000 the combined output of the
United Kingdom of Great Britain, Russia,
Austria, Spain. Belgium and the Scandi
navian countries. The food products of
the United States exceed by 400.000 tons the
combined product of Great Britain, France,
Germany, Italy, Spain, Denmark and Hol
land. In brief, from the farms, the fac
tories, the shops, the mills, the forests ari
the mines, labor has brought forth and
fashioned for the use of man that which
has contributed not only to our happiness,
but has augmented, in marvelous degree,
cur Nation's wealth. Is it not, therefore,
opportune that the people should unite
their efforts in making Labor day a red
letter day In honor of worklngmen and
women? Let us make the bronzed hand of
toll an ensign of honor. Paul was not
ashamed to hold up his needle-worn hands
in the presence of the elders of Ephesus
and exclaim: "These hands have ministered
to my necessities and to them that were
with me. I have showed you all things,
how that so laboring ye ought tov support
"Tne purpose of this day is to encourage
a higher appreciation of the honor that
belongs to working people, and to stimu
late wholesome industrial pursuits. It is to
be deplored that the present trend is so
largely away from 'patient drudgery and
honest toil, and toward reckless specula
tion, involving schemes whereby. zhc un
wary are deceived and crafty promoters
are enabled by their wits to live in luxury.
By far too many agents, at large salaries,
and upon extravagant commissions, are at
present supported by needful enterprises,
causing extravagant rates and needless
burdens o! expense.
" 'In the sweat of the face shall man eat
bread, is the divine decree; but. by the
persuasive power of the tongue, and not In
the 'sweat of the face, there seems a grow
ing purpose to ignore the divine fiat. 'In
all labor there is profit, whilo the talk of
the lips tends only to penury. is as true in
economic science to-day as when Solomon
uttered the proverb. -
"It is earnestly recommended that the
public addresses on Labor day be of such
a wise, conciliatory character that all our
people shall look with greater favor upon
working people and have a keener appre
ciation of that great factor, which contri
butes so much to the growth, progress and
prosperity of our country. Let the spirit
of interdependence be exalted as the basic
principle of a new economic law that shall
become the governing rule of labor ques
tions. The workingman who eeks to ad
vance his employer's Interests is doubly
promoting his own welfare. The employer
who, at heart, seeks the welfare of his men
adds security to his business and enlarges
his enterprise. The workingman who puts
heart and brain into his work will, him
self, become an employer of men. The
workingman Is entitled to a just share of
the wealth he creates. His wages should
be sacred to his home and for Ihe good and
comfort of those he loves, and should never
be diverted , to the rum-seller's till or the

State has not been marred by bitterness
and rancor in the settlement of labor dif
ferences. The laboring men of Indiana have
risen to a high plane of honor, and ask for
a fair adjustment of all differences by a
board of arbitration.. Strikes, lockouts ?nd

complain of the loss of a suit, valued at
$13. which was delivered to his apartments
and paid for by check, which has since
been found to be of no value.
The young man ordered of Young &. Mc
Murray, tailors, on Pennsylvania street, a
pair of $12 trousers, and when he went to
get them Monday afternoon offered a $15
check, which was refused. Julius C. Walk
sold a diamond ring for $115. but before
delivering the ring found the check was
worthless, and he now has ring and check.
Bradley represented to the tailors that he
needed the clothes to attend a reception,
and the work was therefore rushed
through for him. A ball of heavy twine
found in his room leads to the belief that
he lowered his grip to the ground with it.

The slate president, A. R. Seward, in his
opening address, recommended the estab
lishment of a mortuary benefit fund under
the supervision of the national camp.- The
reports of the state secretary and treasurer
showed a larger sum on hand than ever in
the state treasury at the close of a fiscal
year, and the verbal reports of the other
ftate officers were to the effect that a much
larger growth of the order in the State
was In prospect for the coming year. The
last report of the national camp showed a
large gain of membership In the State dur

CONDITIONS ARE BETTER
INCREASED DEMAND FOR CARS IX
ALL LINES OF TRAFFIC
The Pennsylvania and the Nerr York
Central Will Expend Million of
Dollarn In Improvements.
The increased movement of freight is
nothing enormous as yet. and the capacity
of the railroads is not taxed to any great
degree to handle it, but it is sufficiently
large to demonstrate that a turn for the
better has been reached. The first move
ment that demanded extra cars and extra
motive power was on coal, coke. Iron and
steel, which have been moving more freely
in the last two weeks than for as many
months. Following this movement came a
heavier shipment of all kinds of freight.
and now the business conditions generally,
as reflected by the railroads, are much bet
ter. Since the early spring there have been
more cars than the movement of the
freight demanded, and the freight earnings
of the railroads have been falling off now
on account of the slack business. Now
cars are in better demand, and the car ac
countants are back at their old occupation
of urging shippers to give as good dispatch
to cars as possible. When business com
menced to decline the railroads showed it
first. The iron trade is usually taken as
the surest barometer of the business con
ditions, and the railroad business comes
A Valuable Auxiliary.
The Star Union line, operating over the
Pennsylvania, and one of the most suc
cessful auxiliaries to the great system, has
just put In effect a revised schedule and in
structions of the refrigerator car service
of this line over the Pennsylvania lines
west of Pittsburg, the Southwest system.
It gives some interesting Information to
shippers. The Union line refrigerator cars
will be run on these lines, as they have
been formerly, picking up perishable
freight at all stations. The through re
frigerator service for less than carload
shipments is arranged for the following
points of destination only: Boston, New
York, Philadelphia. Baltimore, Trenton,
New Brunswick. Elizabeth. Newark. Pitts
burg, Brooklyn. Their pick-up refrigera
tor cars will be run between all the prin
cipal cities on the system, on certain speci
fied days of the week. Those affecting Co
lumbus are as follows: Bradford, O.. to Co
lumbus, Indianapolis division, Thursday
and Saturday: Dennlson, O., to Columbus.
Pittsburg division. Thursday: Cincinnati.
O., to Columbus, Cincinnati division, Cin
cinnati to Xenia, on Friday, and Xenla to
Columbus Saturday; Marietta, O., to Co
lumbus, Mariettta division. Marietta to
Newcomerstown, Wednesday and Satur
day. All the cities have equally good ad
vantage of this efficient pick-up refrigera
tor car service. Dairy products and other
produce requiring shipment of the kind are
thus concentrated at the various points and
forwarded in bulk directly to the larger
centers or markets. Strict rules and in
structions for the handling of this traffic
have been Issued to agents and trainmen
at the consolidation points named.
The cost of the plans for the terminal Im
provements at Washington, D. C, of the
Pennsylvania, proposed in the bill reported
to the United State Senate, is estimated
at approximately $6,000.000. A new ter
minal station to cost about $1,500.000 Is to be
built, and an elevated structure, supported
by arches, will connect with the tracks
outside the city, eliminating the grade
crossings. The present "Long Bridge"
across the Potomac river Is to be replaced
by two structures, one of which will be
confined to railroad traffic The bill places
an exceptionally heavy proportion of the
cost of these Improvements on the Pennsyl
vania Railroad Company. The expense to
be borne by the city of Washington will
probably not much exceed $yo0.000.
The New York Central will improve its
terminals at Wheehawken, N. J. The work
of improvement, estimated to cost between
$3.000.000 and $4,000,000. will include the con
struction of ten new piers and ultimately
of a new grain elevator. The present yards
of the West Shore will be included in the
new terminals, which will be four times
their present size. The capacity of the re
ceiving yard will be about 2,500 cars.
