Tramps Fire on Harvest
Hands and Force Them
to Jump Off.
Glendive, Aug. Is.-A mad battle in a
freight car going at full speed east of
Glendive today resulted in the death of
an unidentified tramp and the fatal shoot
ing of two harvest hands, who were
bound from here to North Dakota.
The tramps, armed with revolvers,
struggled with the harvest hands for the
possession of the car and finally drove
them off, while the train was going at
full speed. Two of the men who jumped
I cannot live--theother four are badly hurt.
The harvest hands, who have been
working in this section, numbered six In
a Today they boarded an eastbound North

car without knowledge of the crew, shut
I themselves in.
Expecting trouble with tramps, who In
feast the trains in this section, they had
t armed themselves with rocks.
The men had had a good haying season
here and there was considerable money in
the crowd.
Three Tramps Appear.
Just east of here three tramps climbed
on top of the car and began hammering at
a door in the rear.
They said they wanted to get in and
hide as the conductor was coming.
The harvest hands refused to open the
door. A tramp then shot off the lock and
the three hoboes, flourishing revolvers,
charged in.
Rocks began to fly and the tramps
a opened fire.
The roar of the train drowned the battle,
t and the crew did not dream of the excit

In five minutes the box car was trans
formed into shambles.

ers, was shot in the right shoulder and the
William M. Mennings, another har
vester, was shot in the leg and his jugular
vein was nearly severed with a bowie.
All three of the tramps fired until their
revolvers were empty.
They finally overawed the hands and
went through their clothes.
Y Then, while the train was going at full
speed, the tramps ordered the men to jump.
It was like walking the planks in the old
days of the sea-pirates, for it looked like
certain death to leave the train while it
was going 40 males an hour.

The train stopped at Wibaux, where

Their companion, the third man, was
found in the car, his head literally
smashed to a jelly by the boulders of
the harvest hands.
The sides of the car were splashed
with blood and dented with rocks and the
floor resembled shambles.
The body of the unidentified man was
left in the car, which was sidetracked,

The first popositioln taken up was a rec
ommendation prohibiting members of sub

This suggestion was adopted but the
convention voted down a suggestion ex

This negative action was taken because
the point is already covered by existing
There was considerable discussion of an
amendment suggested by Delegate Taylor
of Tacoma, Wash., for the recognition of
the rule of employing substitutes as regu
lar printers.
Is Voted Down.
There was a recognition of the fact that
a better regulation than that which exists
at present is desirable, but the suggestion
was antagonized as impracticable by the
law's committee and the proposition was
voted down.
The convention adopted an amendment
to the general laws suggested by Delegate
Taylor giving to sub printers the privileges
enjoyed by regular printcrs.
The convention then took up the sug
gestion made by the conmmittee on laws to
fix a standard for the measurement of
machine set type, but after extended de
Iate the question was recommitted to the
committee for further consideration.
