THK INDIANAPOLIS JOUR NAT FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1902.
Copious (Xtrarta from his book wer read and placed on rn-or-l. Stmon F. Wolver ton. counsel for the Reading Company, read much .f th matter pertaining to vio lence In the 1IW) strike, and also read ar ticles written by Roberts during the prog ress of the late contest In which he de scribed in strong language the acta of vio lence. Intimidation and boycotting commit ted during that suspension. His articles spoke of some of these acts as ' brutal out rages.'' and he alao branded the unions action in calling out the steam men in June as "foolhardy." In explaining hi articles Mr. Roberts said triat h- did not wish to imply that the organisation wm responsible for all the lawlessness committed. The preacher said yesterday that newspaper accounts exag gerated the amount of lawlessness in the coaj regions, so that Mr. Wolvertons read ing Dr. Roberta's description of serious 1MB of violence and boycotting; afforded Tr.uch amusement. Mr. Roberts gave it as his opinion that attempts to have nonunion men form a separate organisation were in stigated by parties opposed to organised labor. While an attempt was being made to show that carelessness of the miners con tributes materially to the danger of his occupation. Chairman Gray interposed with the remark that a margin of careless ness incident to human nature must he taken into account when estimating the dangerousnesa of any hazardous occupa tion The interest in the commissioners and their investigation has not decreased. Each day hundreds of men line the streets and watch the arbitrators walk from the hotel to the courtroom. Most of them are Idle mine workers, and they give the commis sioners a somewhat critical look as they pass by. Each session of the commission finds the hearing room Jammed with in terested persons. The commissioners con tinue to hold dally conferences, but what Is discussed Is as a rule strictly withheld from the public. The commissioners were in conference un til late to-night. Among the matters dis cussed was that of having both sides pre sent evidence more rapidly than in now being done. The attorneys for the miners and operators have promised documentary evidence in the various questions before the arbitrator, but they are not quite ready to submit it. A member of the com mission said late to-night that they could not xi act d to '.iear oral evidence when documentary evidence is obtainable. Pres ident Mit hell was summoned after 11 o'clock to-nlg-nt and stated the best he could do at thl time in the way of pre senting documentary evidence would be due hills and other forms of wage state ments of miners that he hau in hl pos session. No oncluslon was reached, and it is expected that the matter will be settled at to-morrow's sessions. Will Handle the Lehigh's Business. PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 20,-The Press to morrow will say: "For the next five years the Girard Trust Company will handle all the coal business of the Lehigh Valley Company.

These cer tificates are to be taken by the Trust Com pany and It is to retain 75 per cent, of the selling price of the coal as collateral. The selling of I3.WJO.000 of coal trust certificates to the Qtraxd Trust Company caused some surprise. The transaction is somewhat sim ilar to the action taken by the Philadelphia A Reading Coal and Iron Company when it made the Finance Company of Pennsyl vania its coal agent.

Association Members Pleased with Peace Settlement Startllns; Min- 1 ikikl I m It 11 nnip W. H. Watklns returned from the Chi cago meeting yesterday and the happy smiles on his face showed that he was well pleased with the result of the baseball set tlement. He even went Into the big safe and drew forth a bunch of contracts, and as he called off the names of part of the men who have signed to play with the In dianapolis team next season he remarked that he need have no fear now that they will be secured by some other minor league organization. He has the signatures of the following men to contracts for 1903: "NV. H. Fox, George P. Kihm, W. A. Kellum, Peter J. O'Brien, Tom Williams, of last year's team; Charles De Armond. lnflelder; James T. Jones, outfielder; Charles Flick, infielder; A. J. Hamilton, pitcher. In addition terms have been made with other players, among them Hogrlever, whereby they will play with Indianapolis. Some of the men on last year's team who refused to sign contracts at salaries of fered them may find a -Tittle trouble in se curing their figures when the time comes, as under the new order of things players will not be able to demand such enormous salaries. Mr. Watklns says the American Associa tion is well pleased with the settlement of the differences between the association nd the Western League. The association is now a Class A member of the National Associa tion of Minor Leagues, which means that the war is at an end. Under the terms of settlement of the Western League and as sociation differences the Powers compro mise was practically adopted. Noneonfllct ing dates will be arranged in Milwaukee and Kansas City so far as reasonable. President Hickey, of the American Asso ciation, and President Sexton, of the West ern League, will arrange schedules for their respective leagues, and an umpire will be chosen to decide questions regard ing the schedules, for the war Is to be fought out In Milwaukee and Kansas City. Both leagues are under 16,000 bond not to loan any players to either the Kansas City or Milwaukee clubs in either organisation or to exceed in salaries an average of the other clubi in the respective leagues. This will mean that the public will be left to determine which organisation should have the support of the two cities. Under the terms of settlement the Amer ican Association agreed to respect the Western League's reserration of 1902 so far as it covers players who were under con tract and played with the Western League last year. Only four Western League play ers signed by association clubs this fall will have to be returned. The American Asso ciation also agreed to respect the contracts of players under contract In any organiza tion since the date of the truce arranged in New York on Oct. 29 last. The settle ment in no way affects the players on as sociation teams last year. e (T.MKtl. LEAGUE PROPOSED. Evansvllle and Terre Haate to Join Marlon and Fort Wayne. ST. LOUIS, Nov. 20. Executive sessions of the annual meeting of the Three I Base ball League were held late this afternoon and to-night at the Southern Hotel, and will continue to-morrow. President Sexton is presiding. About forty delegates are In attendance. Petitions were presented by President Bement. of the Evansvllle, Ind., club, and President Smith, of the Terre Haute club, asking permission to withdraw from the league, that they may combine with Fort Wayne and Marion, Ind., In form ing a new league. The apparent determina tion of Evansvllle and Terre Haute to with draw at once focused the attention of the meeting. Delegates from Ottumwa, Ia., and Springfield, HL, presented applications to take the places that will be made vacant by the withdrawal of Evansvllle and Terre Haute, and delegates will be here from Joliet, 111., and Dubuque, Ia., to-morrow to present similar applications. After discus sion the matter went over until to-morrow. It is the general opinion that permission for withdrawal will be granted the two clubs, but what two clubs will be substi tuted Is to-night problematical. Delegates Isidore Hunter, of Fort Wayne, and C. W. Halderman, of Marion, Ind., are here, and in case permission to withdraw is granted Terre Haute and Evansvllle, these four cities will comprise the nucleus for the formation of the proposed new league, which will probably also embrace Zanesville, Dayton and Youngstown, O., Wheeling, W. va., and several other cities In that territory. Delegates from these cities are here, and will probably hold a meeting. MAT IlfVADB CHICAGO. Rnmor that Minneapolis and St. Paul Are to Be Dropped. MINNEAPOLIS. Minn., Nov. 20.

(CONCLUDED FROM FIRST PAGE he and his deputies loaded the prisoner Into a wagon and tried to take him to the Sulli van jail, but just as the wagon drove up in front of the jail yard a mob of forty or fifty men, armed with shotguns and revol vers, attacked the negro, and the sheriff and his deputies were overpowered. The negro was taken in charge by the mob and hurried to the homes of Mrs. Davis, near Carlisle, and Mrs. Lemon, near Oaktown, for Identification. Governor Durbln called Colonel McCoy, commanding the First Regiment, to call out Company A. of Vincennes. to proceed to the scene, but it was learned that Colonel McCoy was in Indianapolis. Governor Dur bln then ordered Major Coulter, of Sulli van, to issue immediate orders to Captain McCoy, of Company A, to arm his men and proceed on a special train to the scene. The Governor also ordered a special train to be in wailing at the E & T. H. depot in yincennes to carry the militia company to the scene, but the railroad officials could furnish only a switch engine and two box cars. While the company was being mobil ized to take the train the Governor got into communication with farmers between Carlisle and Oaktown by long distance tele phone. The actions of the mob were com municated to the Governor's office, but it was seen that the militia company would not be able to arrive in time to prevent the lynching A farmer named O Haver, living within half a mile of the scene of the lynching, was reached by telephone. He said he knew nothing of the hanging, but could hear the mob passing his house. He said there were fully 800 men in the crowd at that time. He said he had talked with one of the mob, and the latter declared that both the assaulted women had identified the negro. According to the information received at the Governor's office Moore was taken by the mob to a point on the road between Carlisle and Oaktown. where he was hnd tn a talenhnne DOle. The news of the hanging reached the Governor before the Vincennes troops left for the scene, and an order was Issued not to proceed to Oaktown. - FORFEITED HIS OFFICE. Sheriff Dudley's Dereliction Cost Him His Place Inder the Law. Attorney General W. L. Taylor was great ly shocked last evening at the news of the lynching. He was extremely indignant as well, and expressed Vordbly his opinion of the officers of the law who had permitted the outrage. "One single courageous word from that sheriff would have averted the lynching." he said. "He had only to declare to that mob that he would protect the prisoner with his life and that any man who attempted to lay hands on the negro would be shot. and the mob would have hacked down. It is a shame that a lynehing should occur in Indiana in this day, and there is abso lutely no excuse for it. The sheriff did not da his duty; that is all." Sheriff Dudley, who permitted the mob to take the negro from his custody, for feited his office immediately that was done, under the provisions of the lynching law nassed bv the last Legislature. The law on this noint Is as follows: "If any person shall be taken from the hands of a sheriff or his deputy having such person in custody, and shall be lynched, it shall be conclusive evidence of failure on the part of such sheriff to do his duty, and his office shall thereby and thereat immediately be vacated, and the coroner shall immediately succeed to and perform the duties of sheriff until the suc cessor of such sheriff shall have been duly appointed, pursuant to existing law pro viding for the filling of vacancies in such office, and such sheriff shall not thereafter be eligible to either election or reappoint ment to the office of sheriff." Cnder this act the sheriff is not crim inally liable, but he is liable In a civil suit for damages that may be instituted by the heirs of the man lynched. The sheriff s bondsmen are liable to the amount of his bond. If he Is not financially responsible to the amount of damages secured by the plaintiffs. PROBABLY LYXCHED.

To the Editor of the Indianapolis Journal: In referring to me this morning in your paper I am quoted as saying that the majority of Prohiffltlon partisans are not in favor of prohibition now.
