DISCUSSMILLERCASt PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT AND
BOR LEADERS CONFER AT
THE WHITE HOUSE.
SAYS HiS DECISION IS FINAL
CHIEF EXECUTIVE REFUSES TO
TAKE ANY FURTHER ACTION
IN THE MATTER.
Washington, Sept. 30.An import
ant conference took place at the White
House last night between President
Roosevelt and five members of the
executive council of the American
Federation of labor, including Presi
dent Gompers and Mr. Mitchell, head
of the miners' union, during which the
case of Foreman Miller of the govern
ment printing office, who was dismiss
ed because he had been expelled from
the local Bookbinders' union, and af
terwards was reinstated by direction
of the president, was the principal
topic of discussion. The conference
was granted at the request of the la
bor leaders. The Miller case was
very fully presented by the members
of the executive council at the con
ference, at the close of which the
president made a statement in which
he announced that his decision not to
dismiss Mi. Miller was final and the
question of his personal fitness must
be settled in the regular routine of
The statement in regard to the Mil
ler case is as follows:
Cannot Permit Discrimination.
"As regards the Miller case, I have
little to add to what I have already
said. In dealing with it, I ask you to
remember that I am dealing purely
with the relation of the government
to its employes. I must govern my ac
tion by the laws of the land, which I
am sworn to administer, and which
differentiate any case in which the
government of the United States is a
party from all other case whatsoever.
These laws are enacted for the bene
fit of the whole people, and cannot and
must not be construed as permitting
discrimination against some of the
people. I am president of all the peo
ple of the United States, without re
gard to creed, color, birthplace, occu
pation or social conditions. My aim
is to do equal and exact justice as
among them all. In the employment
and dismissal of men in the govern
ment service, I can no more recognize
the fact that a man does or does not
belong to a union as being for or
against him than I can recognize the
fact that he is a protestant or a Catho
lic, a Jew or a Gentile, as being for
or against him.
Grounds of Complaint.
"In the communications sent me by
various labor organizations protesting
against the retention of Miller in the
government printing office, the
grounds alleged are twofold:
"FirstThat he is a non-union man
serond, that he is not personally fit
The question of his personal fitness is
one to be settled in the routine of ad
ministrative detail, and cannot be al
lowed to conflict with or to complicate
the larger question of governmental
discrimination for or against him or
any other man because he is or is not
a member of a union. The is the
only question now before me for de
cision and as to this, my decision is

cil attending the conference constitut
ed th subcommittee appointed to take
up the Miller case at the meeting of
the executive council held in Wash
ington last week. They asked the
president for a conference to discuss
labor legislation and the Miller case,
and the following labor leaders attend
ed the conference: Mr. Samuel
Gompers, Mr. James Duncan Mr
John Mitchell, Mr James O'Connell
and Mr. Frank Morrison.
Labor Leaders Not Satisfied.
From the manner of the labor lead
ers as they came from the White
House It was evident they were not
entirely satisfied with the result of
their interview. They declined to be
interviewed. Mr. Gompers referring
the reporters to the statement that
wculd be given out by the president's
secretary regarding the Miller case
While he was talking, one of his as
sociates wished it to be impressed on
the reporters that the president's
statement should be understood by
them as an "entirely independent
statement and not at the council's re

the attention of the president several
matters in which it was interested

expressed himself as favorable to the

BRITISH CABINET CRISIS.
Its Prolongation Likely to Further
Discredit the Government.
London, Sept. 30.A prolongation
of the ministerial crisis seems likely,
judging from newspaper comment, to
still further discredit the government.
It had been taken for granted that
Premier Balfour would complete the
reconstruction of the cabinet before
going to Sheffield to deliver his long
expected speech, explaining his fiscal
policy, which is due on Oct. 1. It is
now seen that that is impossible, and
the apparent waiting for Lord Milner's
decision is commented on in Conserva
tive as well as Liberal papers as em
phasizing the dearth of firstclass
statesmen in the Conservative ranks.
A large section of the Unionist party
5s restive under the report that Br. Bal
four is supporting Mr. Brodrick In the
latter's determination to remain at th
TRIAL OF JAMES H. TILLMAN.
Large Number of Witnesses Examined
in Murder Case.
Lexington, S. C, Sept. 30.Good
made Tuesday in the trial
here Former Lieutenant Governor
James H. Tillman, who is charged
with the murder of N. 6. Gonzales, edi
tor of the State. A large number of
Witnesses were examined.
One line of examination pursued by
the state was with a view to laying
the foundation for the introduction of
dying declarations of N. G. Gonzales.
Four of the physicians who participat
ed in the operation on Mr. Gonzales
after he was shot were on the stand.
Much of the testimony of the physi
cians was technical.
Ambrose Gonzales, publisher of the
State and a brother of N. G. Gonzales
was called to the stand when the
prosecution offered in evidence the
files of the State for the year 1902,
the purpose as announced by counsel
to introduce the editorials of the State
newspaper, of which N. G. Gonzales
was editor from July 1, 1902, to Dec.
31, 1902. The editorials in question
are in relation to James H. Tillman.
Reading of the editorials was post
poned so that the counsel for the de
fense might read them first.
Mr. Gonzales, on cross-examination,
said the relations between his brother
and Mr. Tillman were not pleasant,
but he had never heard his brother
use abusive language in regard to
The defense objected to all the tes
timony relating to the carrying of a
pistol by the defendant prior to the
shooting, unless it could be shown
that there was a connection between
the carrying at that time and the
The court admitted the testimony
with the provision that if it was not
developed that it was competent, the
jury would be instructed to disregard
VERY DECIDED CHANGE.
New York Stock Market Witnesses
Buying In Large Volumes.
New York, Sept. 30.A very decided
change came over Tuesday's stock
market. In place of the recent heavy
liquidations and further shrinkage of
values, there was buying in large vol
umes apparently by the leading finan
cial interests, though it was more than
likely that a goodly part of the day's
purchases was really in the nature of
supporting orders. It is also probable
that some of the high grade stocks
were absorbed for investment. The
bears were not slow to observe the
changed conditions and covered very
extensively in fact, their attitude
helped in no small degree to sustain
the list, which was at top prices at the
Conditions at the outset were not
encouraging. The cables reported a
situation bdrdering on demoralization
in London, where consols had fallen
to another low record with heavy de
clines in the leading Americans, not
ably the steel stocks. Initial transac
tions in this market reflected the tone
of that in London, but after the first
few minutes the market reversed its
course under the lead of Pennsylvania,
which was the pivotal issue of the
day. That stock was openly bought
by interests that represent the road
financially and on sales of more than
123,000 shares made a net gain of 3%
A story went the rounds during the
day that leading financial interests
had agreed to protect the market by
united action. The story was denied
in authoritative circles.
LONG SEARCH ENDED.
Wife of a Minnesota Millionaire Finds
Syracuse, N. Y., Sept. 30.After a
seven-year search through many
states, in which scores of detectives
participated and thousands of dollars
were expended, Mrs. J. S. Robbins,

daughter at Copenhagen, Lewis county

She wanted her children back, but

girl was brought up by the matron of
the school and adopted by Mr. and
Mrs. Levi Trembly of Copenhagen.
Mrs. Robbins could get no trace from
here. A few days ago a detective who
had a clew visited Copenhagen, took
kodak pictures of the children in the
schools there. These were sent to
Mrs. Robbins, who recognized her
daughter in one of them.
Tuesday she arrived in the village
and found her child. Mr. Trembly re
fused to give her up, but finally con
sented, with the understanding that he
was to go to Minnesota and see if the
child would receive good care. Last
night he and Mrs. Robbins and the
child left for the West. He is to re
ceive $1,000 for the care of the child.
The detective will receive a large re
