The exiles are not being treated as prisoners, but are being guarded by soldiers with side arms, and no one is permitted to enter the camp without a pass. The men believe the President will order them sent back to their homes, but there is no information in camp upon which to base this supposition. The men continue to complain about having money and valuables taken from them at Bisbee, but are unable to pive names of any one who robbed them. They also allege their wives were not being permitted to draw money from the Bisbee banks, but this report was ? not confirmed. Quietly Obey Orders After the exiles had completed estab liahing camp they all went to the big1 water tank in the camp and bathed ? their blistered feet, washed their ? clothes and then slept in the shade of the wedge tents. They obey orders without comment and seem to have ac? cepted their lot for the present. When the unshaved and unwashed crowd marched up to the refuge camp this afternoon they presented one of the atrangeat sights Columbus has, seen since Villa's Mexican bandits dashed into the town, on March 9, 1916. Many were without hats and wore ? oiled handkerchiefs on their heads to keep off the hot sun. Others' limped from blistered feet, while old men and the physically unfit had difficulty in marching the mile to the camp from the railroad. One man fainted after reaching the camp, and the hospital ? tent was crowded with minor cases during the afternoon, though no serious i illness has been discovered. l.W.W.

April, 10ii Shipyard Strike May Extend as Far as Seattle International Officers of Various Unions to Decide 6,500 Have Quit Work Question of Calling Out Jer? sey Workers To Be De? cided Monday The .Marine Trade? Council vest, r dny put over to Monday the question of calling strikes in several New Jer? sey ship plants to enforce the demand? of the men for an increase of fifty cents a day. At the same time the proposition that strikes be called in all plants controlled by the interests op?r ating yards from which the workers have walked out or are on strike was referred to international officers of the various unions. In this move is contained the menace of a nation-wide strike, for the propo- j sition is directly aimed at the William H. Todd interests, which control the i:?.M.nis l>ry I?oek and Repair 4'o*n panv. in Brooklyn, and Ott?! plants as tar'west as Seattle. Indirectly, it is. aimed at the National Metal Trades AesociatiOB, which has been backing the tirms whose men are now out, to tent of providing men to take the places of some of the strikers.

Me. was not m nil offlee yesterday, but was, quoted as saying that, the situation has become serious. Up to this time , he has maintained that the matter would be easily disposed of by the finas interested. Rowland B. Mahany, the Federal mediator who has been trying for a year to adjust the relation.? between the shipbuilders and their employes and put in the last week endcavor?ng to bring the two together, was in , Washington yesterday conferring with the depnrtment. While here, Mr. Mahany intimated that a Federal investigation might be necessary to develop the truth or falsity of charges that some of the larprer firms were coercing smaller firms not to deal with their men. Questions Hunter's Statement He also asserted that no question of union r?cognition was involved in the dispute and challenged the accuracy of a statement credited to Mr. Hunter that the employers had always been willing to meet their own men to dis cuss wages and conditions of employ? ment. About 6.500 men are on strike in fourteen yards and shops in this sec? tion. About 3,500 have received *l.e increase without striking. Of the men on strike large numbers have pone to other places where shipbuilders are in demand. International officers of the various unions in New York yesterday refu?eJ to di?cuss the situation for publica? tion beyond saying that it would end only when the demands of the men are granted. "Is it true that it is planned to carry the strike into other New Jersey poirts and Connecticut?" one of these ?a? asked yesterday. "The strike may extend as far as Seattle," was the answer.

American Miners Drive Foreigners From Lead Belt Herd 700 Laborers on Trains Leaving St. Fran? cois County, Missouri Flat River, Mo., July 14. -About 700 foreign-born laborers were foreetd out of the St. Fran?ois County lead belt to-day by American-born miners, who insisted that all the foreigners must leave. The Americans, armed with shotguns and carrying American flags, rushed the foreigners to the railway station every time a train came in. The Amer? icans fired in?o the air as they herde?! the foreigners to the trains. No one has been seriously hurt. Officials of the Western Federation of Miners said the demonstrations were cause?! by strangers sent into the district by the I. W. W. News that Missouri Guardsmen were on the way to Flat River from St, Louis did not become public until a train bringing St. Louis newspaprrs arrived a few* minutes after 6 o'clock. Members of the mob ?fjicn discussed whether the Guardsmen would attack , the American-born miners, who in? sisted that they were justified in ex? pelling the foreigners. The refugees are puzzled and appar? ently do not comprehend what it is all about. The Americans endeavore?! to get miners of Bonne Terre, Mo., to organ? ize similarly and make the movement against foreigners general. To-night, however, there was nothing to indicati that workmen at Bonne Terre were in svmpathy with the Flat River mal? contents. Representative foreigners said they had had no intimation of any ill feel? ing against them and that thev would not have worked if they had considered their presence in the mines was unde? sirable. The trouble is attributed gen? erally to the influx of foreigners who have been attracted here by the higher wage?. -o No Paralysis Epidemic This Year, Says Report Only 77 Cases-Found, Against 1.900 Last Year No epidemic of infantile paralysis will terrorize New York this year, ac? cording to a statement issued by the Department of Health yesterday. Only seventy-seven cases have been reported to the officials since January 1, whereas in the first seven months of 1916 1,900 cases were on record. Less than one-third of the possible poliomyelitis eases this year were real cases of the disease. Commissioner Fmerson says physicians are more closely watching for the appearance of ! the disease than ever before. They re i port every suspicion, no matter how j slight, which makes it unlikely that any j considerable number of cases will I escape detection and supervision. Most of the cases reported under the name of infantile paralysis this year were meningitis. The department is m | sisting that every suspected case be cared for at a hospital unless perfect isolation can be secured at home. Last week the city had the lowest death rate of any week in its history, Commissioner Fmerson said. The death rate among babies less than one year old in the period from January 1 to I date was S? for each I.iron births, and I the rate for the same period last year \ was 93. Ten years ago the death rate 1 for babies was double that number. ! U. S. Red Cross Unit at Rome Rome, Friday, July 13. Forty Red i Cross volunteers from Leland Stanford ?

Henry Astor Wills Estate to Kin Who Ostracized Him Estranged Forty Years Ago When He Married Gar , dener's Daughter I Disinherited by Father Unacknowledged Head of the Family Is Active in 86th Year Heno* Lewis Morris, Charles A Pea body and Lewis Spencer Morris, trus? tees under a deed of trust executed by Henry Astor, the unacknowledged head of the Astor family, filed an applica? tion for the court approval of their ac? counts in the County Clerk's office yes? terday. "I'ncle Henry" Astor is the only sur? viving son of William B. Astor. Forty years ago he cut himself off from his family by marrying Malvina W. Dine hart, daughter of a former gardener on his father's estate. Because of this action, William B. Astor cut his son off in his will. When Henry's brother William died he also cut off Henry without a cent. Independent of Family Since the marriage that estranged him from his family, the head of the house of Astor has lived with his wife on his farm at West Copake. Columbia County, N. Y. He is eighty-live years olfl now, but still hearty and active. Hi? real ?atete holdings in the city have made him independent of his family's favor. Few persons are aware that he is one of the wealthiest land owners in the city. Wlinri he wa? only two yenrs old his father, John Jacob Astor .".?I, nnd ?arles F. Southmayd created a trust for him, from which h?' ha?I enjoyed fhe in? come for more than eighty years.

II?* was forty-live years old when he defied the wishes of his father by his marriage, an?l at that time sacrificed millions, which were left to the Astor Library. !!<? said he preferred the life of a farmer to the activities of social life in the city. Despite the ostracism of his family, the deed of trust provides that after the death of Henry Astor, his entire estate is to he divided among his rela *.. a-, excepting the descendants of Jacob Astor, father of William Wal? dorf Astor These were excluded when the deed was made because of the value of Jacob's holdings. During the life of his wife, Henry Astor has provided in the deed that she is to have a one-third interest in the estate. The estate is to be divided first into as many shares as Henry has brothers and sisters with issue, and then subdivided into as many shares to each portion as there an- children of each brother and sister. Henry Astor has no children. Trustees to Collect Income The trustees were charged with col Ucting the income from Mr. Astor's rial estate holdings during his life. If lie died with issue, he reserved the right to discriminate among his heirs. Otherwise the provisions cited in the d?'ed were to be carried out. Supreme Court Justice Hendrick has granted an order permitting the ser? vice of summons and complaint on the accounting proceedings. This sum? mons, which is entirely friendly, it is said, will be served upon James Roose? velt, Ava Astor, Muriel Astor, Hubert de Stuer?, M.irgaret de Stuers Obern dorff and John .Armstrong Chaloner. !

Heavy Thunderstorm With Wind and Rain) Sweeps City; 1 Dead Staten Island Resort? Suffer; $30,000 Damage at Perth Amboy The heaviest thunderstorm of the season swept over New York City last evening. While little actual damage to property was caused on Manhattan, Staten Island and suburban districts suffered heavily from the combined effects of lightning, wind and ram. For more than an hour the city was dazzled by an electric display that flashed and blazed over the housetops. Bain fell so heavily that awnings were teilten down and streets were flooded from gutter to gutter. At least one death was caused by the storm, William Kiley, address un? known, who was fishing from a motor boat off Edgewater, N. J., when the rain poured down over the Hudson. The craft was battered by the wind and shipped much water. Kiley became frightened, and, though his companion, William Qoover, of 96 Spring Street, told him to sit still, stood up, toppled overboard and was drowned. The body has not been recovered. The storm played particular havoc with Staten Island. Washouts occurred on all trolley lines, practicalty tying up the whole transportation service from 7 to '.? p. m. In many commun? ities electric light wires were burned out by the lightning, and half of the Borough of Richmond went to bed la?. night by candle and kerosene light. At Midland and South Beach more than a hundred tents, where families were spending the summer, were knocked flat by the wind, and their in? habitants driven, drenched, in search of shelter. Harry Alpers, fourteen years old, of '.i00 Rockaway Avenue, Brooklyn, was swept from the pier at the foot of Tyse*'. Street, New Brighton, by the force of the gale and was dragged from the water, unconscious, by Patrolman Schleith. About Perth Amboy, N. J., the storm did more than $30,000 damage. The steeple of the Old First Baptist Church, recently sold to the Jewish Congrega? tion, Bnei Zion, was hit by lightning and deateoytttn. Hastings-on-Hudson also suffared hearily, Trees were blown down, elec? tric light wires burned out, and deep gullies washed in many of the roads.
