BIG STRIKE IS THE SOLE TOPIC OF CONVERSATION President Roosevelt's Attitude Generally Commended-Mr. Wharton Was Pres ent at Meeting of Street Railway As sociation Held in Detroit-Enjoyed Brief Pleasure Trip Also Manager J. R. Wharton of the Butte Street Railway company and his daughter, Jessie, who accompanied him on his East crn trip, have returned to the city. Mr. \VWharton combined business with pleasure and took in many of the points of interest in the East. le attended the meeting of the National Street Railway association, which was held in Detroit on October 8, 9 and to, as the representative of the local street railway company. Mr. Wharton said that the meeting was a particularly inter esting one, and that the exhibit of street car appliances was above the ordinary. "I was particularly impressed with the possi bilities of a friction break which was shown at the meeting, and which is now in opera tion on the cars in Pittsburg," said Mr. Wharton. "I afterward went to Pittsburg to see how it worked, and I was so much pleased with it that I made arrangements to have one sent to Butte for trial. If it works all right it is not unlikely that we will equip the cars here with the brakes." From Detroit Manager Wharton and his daughter took a pleasure trip to Niagara Falls, and from there went to Pittsburg. returning home by way of Cleveland and a trip across Lake Erie. Feeling is Intense. "One thing that impressed me while in the East," said Manager Wharton. "was te intense feeling over the coal strike situa tion. We in the \Vest can have no concep tion of what the people east of the Missis sippi have suffered during the past few months. The sulpply of coal gave out in all the large cities some time ago, and :ill dur ing these chilly fall mornings the poorer people, and even those of the well-to-do classes who had not taken the precaution to lay in their winter fuel have suffered much inconvenience. The feclilg against the coal operators was not confined to tile lower or laboring classes. Rich and poor alike seemed united in one opinion of the great question that has been confronting the American nation for the past few months. The strike forms the topic of conversation on the street, in the hotel lobby, at the depots; in fact, at every place where the public congregates. President Roosevelt is commended on all sides for the stand he has taken in the matter. Operators' Action Condemned. "Immediately after the conference be tween the president and the coal operators the intense feeling was at white heat, and it was almost an inmpossibility to find a man, woman or child who would side with the operators. l'he hope was expressed on all sides, and I do not speak from a prejudiced standpoint, you understand, that in case the coal operators refused to agree to terms of arbitration that l'resi dent Roosevelt would confiscate the mining properties in question and operate them by the government. There can be no doubt that the stand taken by the president in the coal strike has greatly increased his popu. larity with all classes. -he is hailed as the man of the hour, and there seems to be a prevailing impression that he can be relied upon to do the right thing at the right time. Novel Heating Apparatus. "In many cases the poorer classes who were without coal or any means of provid ing heat for their household, resorted to a most novel manner of keeping warm. They would take a brick that had not been burned too hard and would saturate it with kerosene and then ignite the brick. T'hus prepared the little piece of baked clay would burn for an hour or two and could lie used two or three times before it was burned out. It was a novel way of keeping warm, but proved decidedly effective." Manager Wharton returns fromi his East. ern trip much refreshed, and both he anid his daughter report a most pleasant time while away. SERMON OF REV. HENRY Methodist Pastor Talks to the Young Men Last Evening. At the Mountain View church last even ing Rev. A. H. Henry preached to young men, taking for his sermon the subject of "Succcss." His text was, "Not slothful in business, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord." Mr. Henry said the elements of success were, first, to have an aim; second, to be diligent in the pursuit of that aim; third, to form the proper associations; fourth, to use your leisure; and last of all, the great element of success is character, without which the other four elements are unavail ing.

JURY DECIDES HE DID ROT SUICIDE VERDICT OF ACCIDENTAL DEATH FROM AN OVERDOSE OF MOR PHINE RETURNED. MAHAN HAD BEEN IN THE DRUG BUSINESS AND KNEW Druggist Who Sold Him the Poison Tes tifies That the Deceased Had Been in Habit of Buying Quantities of the Drug -His Wife Declares He Was Not In toxicated at the Time of His Death. According to the verdict returned hy the coroner's jury at the inlquest held this mlornlig at the undertaking rooms of Sher man & Reed to investigate the death of Frank Mahan, who died at his residence at No. goo )Delaware street, at t o'clock Sat urday morning, the deceased came tol his death from accidentally taking a dose of morphine while he was in a weak physical condition. The testimony of I)octrs., Sievers and (orner, who attended the dead man, denm oistrated very clearly that there was no suicidal intent, and Edward Hlauser, the druggist who sold Mahan the molphine on Thursday night, testified that although Mahan used ilorphine frequently, lie was positive that he was not a morphine fiend. lie was in the habit of using the drug onlly when he thought his nerves were it bad condition. There was considerable interest in the testimony of Mrs. Mahan, as it was thought she might say something which would ildi cite that Mahan was despllondent a few days before his death, buti her testimlony, as well as that given by Mrs. l.riita IlIn !ersont, pointed very cocilusivrely to the, fact that Malhan did nut intend suicide.
