Xegro Who Killed Policeman Shot
ami Kicked to Death.
Cumberland, Md., Oct. o.— The first lynching
In the history of Cumberland, which took place
at an early hour thie morning-, hap been the topic
of penera] discussion, thouprh scarcely of • ■■!.-
A* -"".nation, to-day.
The shooting of Policeman AußU^t Raker on
Thursday nlpht by William Burns, a negro des
perado* while the latter was resisting arrest,
created much excitement, owing to the excellent
reputation of the officer and his well known
kindly disposition. His death on Haturday
morning uas followed by threats against th-j
regro. these coming as much from those of hi.s
own race as from the whites. Few, however,
seem to have thought a lynching possible, and
the police paid no attention to the rumors that
were afloat.
Only Deputy Sheriff Adam Hendley was at the
jail when, after midnight, a crowd of less than
one hundred men. a few of whom were disguised
Jn one way or another, appeared and demanded
the keys. These being refused, a telegraph pole
was used as a battering ram and entrance to
the building was forced. Other negroes in
neighboring cells were careful to guide the
lynchers to that of Burns, and there again the
battering ram was used. The lynchers found
their victim crouched behind his cot and. seizing
him by the feet, dragged him up and down stairs
Jnto the street, where, within a. few yards of the
entrance to the Jail, Burns was kicked and shot
to death.
The Rev. W*. Cleveland Hick*, an Episcopal
<Jergyman, did his best to save the negro, and
afterward protected the body until the arrival
on the scene of Judge A. Hunter Boyd and the
Police. Judge Boyd called on the crowd to dis
perse, and In this was promptly obeyed. The
bouy was removed to an undertaking establlah-
I'itr.t. Ten thousand persons are estimated to
have viewed it to-day.

that there waa hardly ever an honest dollar's
work done by the varloux employes In that, bor
ough. Tho majority of those laid off were em

fUy Telegrai'h to Tho Trll/une.]
Plttsburg. Oct. 6.— The Pressed Steel Car Com
pany during the last week has dispensed with the
services of fly» thousand of Its twelve thousand
employes. Some were laid off Wednesday and the
others last night. As a result, the plant at Wood's
Run, instead of turning out ninety-nix eteel ears
each day, will produce only nineteen.
The present unsettled condition of the railroads
is responsible for laying off the workmen. Many
contracta have been cancelled, while In otber«in
stances the rallroada are holding back specifica
tions on cars that have been ordered, and which
cannot be built unlil the specifications are given.
Most of the foreigners thus thrown out of em
ployment are hurrying to the coal mining towns,
where they will be welcomed, as thn mining com
panies have not enough men successfully to operate
their mine?.

against the Western Union and Postal companies
has taken a new turn When Small was h< re last
he was In harmony with the leal strike leader?.
but now there are differences of opinion between
them, especially in regard to calling out the leased
wiro operators by local No. 18. on Wednesday.
Small attended a special meeting ••'. local No. 1<!
In Clinton Hall yesterday, and said that neither lie
nor any of the other national officers would sanc
tion any s'rik» which would Involve the hre.-.klng
of contracts. Befon I - took ■■' ■■ floor th« meet-

"It Is not necessary to break contracts in ord r r to

absolutely necessary for me to refuse to discuss
quentions ii« to whether negotiations are. pending or
not. Vhe last hix weeks have demonstrated the
Impossibility of preventing leaks ii the efforts to
keep private a number of plans. Nona of them ha.s
been carried Into execution in consequence.
"While I will not say whether any plan Is pend

to prevent It from miscarrying I would not mxkf it
known. I think, ■ •■••.■• that thi ; -!-ik" will ]<•■

end In a victory for our organizations. Thnt is all
I can say now."
When Small linished speaking ho left th« hall,
followed by nevi i i others. No comment wan made
on l.is remarks, but after he hail gone the action
of the union in ••nlllnp the Mrike of th<: less* d wire
men ••i Wednesday was reaffirmed.
Chairman Russell of the board of strategy. in Ills
speech said thai there was a good prospect of win
tUng, though they were In the eighth -.'..••■k of the
strike, which the employers thought would not last
a week, ii" announced that the circular with a
request to the locals in other cities to Join In tho
strike of the leased wire men would be sent to<
every local throagbout the country.
The officers of the union wen not Inclined to talk
much after the meeting. President Small, beyond
Baying thai he would veto the strike if It went Into
effe<\t. would talk no more, about tho leased wire
men. He said that the publicity given to the visit*
of Thomas and Russell to President-Roosevelt In
Oyster Bay and of ICahan and Dougluss to United
States Labor Commissioner Nclll at Washington,
which happened at the same time, had done harm.
It looked as if the two delegations bad crossed
fingers in the eyes of the public.
It was officially announced by the telegraphers
yesterday that 16,000 messenger boys in this city
will k<> out on strike. The order, it Is understood,
comes from Chicago, and it Is to go into effect to
day. Aside from the fact that the noj s are going
out in sympathy with the telegraphers' union, they
demand ••■'> eight-hour day, two and a naif cents a
message, free uniforms and extra pay for Sunday
It la understood that this strike has been In con
templation for several weeks, but it was decided by
tho officials not to take any definite action until
the return of President Small from Washington.

Sunday Spent Quietly in Camp on
Bank of Tensas Bayou.
[By Te>Kraph to Th*- Tribune. 1
Stamboul. La., Oct. »».— President Roosevelt,
and his hunting companions spent a quiet Sun
day in camp. They did not attempt to do any
hunting, but passed - the time reading and
tramping in the vicinity of the tent,-'.
The President's quarters are in a bis 10 by 14
foot tent, pitched upon the bank of Ten?as
Bayou. There is ■ wooden wall around the tent,
and a good solid board floor has been built. He
alee pa In a common stationary bed. but is aa
comfortable in every way aa if he were in his
own apartment at the White House.
When the President and his companions
reached camp yesterday they found "Ben" Ulley.
the noted bear hunter, already on the spot. L.l!
ley came up from Texas in response to a hurry
call sent to him by John W. Parker, who is act
ing: as the President's host. He arrived th«» ~
nJght before with his best bear do«?, but un
fortunately the animal was hurt on the train
during the trip, and probably will not be abl>>
to participate in the hunt.
LUte? has the repufation of being the great
est hunter who ever lived in Louisiana. He ha-»
kiUed '"hundreds of bears." according to popular
report. He always follows his dogs on foot, no
matter how fast or how far they go. In th «
winter time he goes sockless to keep his feet
dry. according to his ..id friends.
Lilley has lost two wives through hi.-> affection
for the woods. Although as good and kind as
any husband vrhen at home, he frequently starts
out on a hunting trip and forgets to come back:
again for am asm! months. Mrs. Lilley No. 1 and
Mrs. Lilley No. 2 both agreed; that they woull
rather have no husband at all.
Assistant Secretary Latta. who is quartered
at the home of !.•-•« Shields, the manager of tho
plantation, will visit the camp for the first Uaaa
to-morrow morning, before the President start-*
out on his initial hunt. The Secret Service men
