PRISON FOR COOK.
.-/ m erira?i Conductor Gets Over
Tivo Years in Jail.
Guadalajara. Mexico. Feb. 7.-Judgo Tala
fox said to-night that ho would carry out
the recommendations if the prosecuting
attorney and sentence James A. Cook, the
American conductor, to two years and ten
months. The prosecuting attorney held
that Ook was guilty of criminal nopij
The prisoner will have the rirht of "pro
prietary liberty." which means that after
half of the sentence has been served lik*
releasei on parole will be possible.
Judre Palafox has signified his willirig
ness to aiiow Cooj^ bail in a sum of from
S,'>v» to 5,000 pesos— si.:/x> to $2,iM gold.
The history of the Cock case extends
hack many months, and has to d n with
ih" robbery of freight trains on the. Guada
lajara division of the National Railways!
Federal officers ... that Mexican
fra-kenien on Crmk's train crow were
throwing off merchandise while the trains
were pulling into Guadalajara at night,
and that the merchandise was picked tip
by confederates and later pol ; to local
merchant.-. Fourteen arrests were made,
the number including three merchants —
two Frenchmen and a Spaniard— in whose
possession goods stolen from Cook's trains
As far as can be learned, thp M^xi'-an
court doe-s not accuse O?ok of participating
in the robberies, but held him on a < barge
of "contributory negHgono?." He was
called to the. Third Criminal Court on
A-jgust 20 last. Dresumariy ;><= a -^imess.
and. after some questions p:n to him by
Judge Falafox. was committed to th" peni
tentiary, where h e has since remained.
Th° railroad officials do not connect t'onk
with the rohberic?. and in statements is
sued by the. Guadalajara division of th**
Order of Rajiway Conductors it is pet forth
that the Mexican brakexnen who commit
ted the robberies said the. American con
ductor had no knowled?'; of the thefts.
An incident, which aroused feeding wa =
the refusal of Judge. Palafox to accept bai!
for the American conductor while acr^p;
irjg bond for the three foreign merchants.
Cook came to Guadalajara two years
ago. His home in in Fort Scott, Kan'.,
where, his parents livp. ITis w!fe died from
smallpox a. few months after their arrival
♦ iTher Ameyjran railroad rneri have h<=cr
held in Mexican prisons while cases against
them were being investigated, but it is be
lieved all such cases have involved the
killing of persons by trains. So far a?
known, the Cook ca.se is th<= only one that
resulted in long- imprisonment ir> connec
tion with freight rcrr-berie?.

Coal Will Cost More.
Wheeling, w Vs., Koh - _p r ,»sident T.
U Lewis of the United Mine Workers of
America la confident, accordtag to an of
ficial statement given .it io-nieht. that the
<-oa] miners and operators who failed '"
come to any agreement at the recent Toledo
conference; will C e t together again before
the expiration of the present wa:» contract
on April l. and thai the result will be the
concession of a substantial wage increase
for the miners all over the country.
President Lewis's statement to-night was
in part as follows:
The prospects for a settlement of the
wage scale between now and April ' "V 11
be based entirely on the willingness of the
operators to grant an advance in wages
to the miner?. An advance is due and a
settlement cannot be readied unless it is
To my judgment, the miner? of the coun
try will be at. work on and after April 1.
and th* wage contract will carry with It
a substantial increase for the miners ail
over the country.
There is no doubt that the mine owners
would furnish more efficient safety appli
ances if it were not for the competition In
Industries and railroads to compel the op
erators to furnish material to railroads at
praetW-aUy cost It is a well known fact
that this' country produces cheaper fuel
than any other country on earth. The new
requirements to safeguard the health ami
lives of the mine workers are that the own
ers most furnish the very best and latest
safety appliances. In order to do this they
will have to receive a higher price for their
-„;.,] furnished to the people, and espe
cially that furnished to railroads and the
tt team trade generally.

Th« Prosecutor paid yesterday that he
had gathered all the information he desired
regarding the quantities of food products

warehouses, and that, now his inquiry ivas
directed into other phases of the situation,
especially the cause of the high cost of
Hvinc. He added that he had made an im
portant and vital over; in that connec
tion, which he could not divulge now. but
which 1^ would submit to the grand jury
at it? session to-morrow.
The Prosecutor has bad his detectives out
questioning the retail dealers, who, the cold
storage representatives maintained, were
responsible for the big advance in prices.
The retailers emphatically denied the alle

The retailor? and cold storage men will ap
