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
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.

holding tactics. Dobbs managed to stay
the full twenty rounds, but the result was
an easy victory for Maloney on points.

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
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.
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
Rnmor that Minneapolis and St. Paul
Are to Be Dropped.
MINNEAPOLIS. Minn., Nov. 20. The
Tribune will say to-morrow morning: "It
is reported on good authority that Minne
apolis and St. Paul will not be represented
in the American Baseball Association next
season. It Is further rumored that the St.
Paul team will be transferred to Chicago,
under the management of Mike Kelly, and
the Minneapolis team will, if present plans
materialize, go to Detroit."
Manager Watklns was asked last night
if there was anything In the rumor, and
he replied: "I think not."

CALCLTTA, Nov. 30. Sir John Wood
burn, lieutenant governor of Bengal since
1898, died to-day.
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
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

To the Editor of the Indianapolis Journal:
In referring to me this morning in your

majority of Prohiffltlon partisans are not in
favor of prohibition now. That statement
would do injustice to a great number of
conscientious people, which I am careful
not to do. The farts are Prohibition par
tisans to a man are In faroi of prohibition
