"And 'do you think Wilson will be ablo to bring about somo kind of a settlement to prevent this?" "He haBn't got tho backbone. He hasn't got the nerve to compel Rocke feller to carry out his terms of peace.' "Is It prcbablo that tho Federal troops will be withdrawn from Colorado this winter?" "I expect that tho troopo will bo out of Colorado soon." "Then what will the miners do, with the federal troops gone and the mllltla turned on them u'galn?" CJcrmcr Is not a lalkatlvo man.

Gcrmer said the coming of the Fodcral trodps has placed the miners In a position where they will be at a serious disadvan tage when tho troops leavo. "The Federal troops," he said, "called for tho arms of tho strikers and tho strikers gave up their arms, all of them. The men now havo ho guns. And If the Federal troops go and tho gunmen are turned loose again well, thcro will bo another Ludldw."

DOVER, Dol., Nov. 11. Delaware teach ers are to voto on tho question of State pensions for school teachers. State Com missioner of Education Wagner and I County Superintendents Cross, Carroll and Hardesty at sessions of the- State In stitute today outlined a tentative plan for a pension fund. Under the schema they unfolded tho State will be asked to make a yearly ap propriation, with the teachers sacrificing a small portion of trwilr salaries to add to the sum. The suggestion has been In dorsed enthusiastically by teachers who have been engaged In educational work for a long term, but It was said It meets with the disapproval of recent recruits to the teaching force. Tho Issue will be settled y a vote to morrow of the GOO teachers attending the Institute. Although Commissioner Wo nor antt hla county aides Rre confident a State appropriation could be obtained, it Is not thought possible a grant could bo made, until 1317, because of steady gains In State expenses, while the taxes and receipts remain stationary. Superintendent Hardest?, of Sussex County, today advocated a change In the school tax rate In his county so that more money would bo given rural schools. This afternoon Mrs. Frederic Schoff, of Philadelphia, addressed the teachers on the value of home and school leagues.

X Morning Post correspondent on the Belgian frontier says, under date of No vember 8; "A trustworthy friend, who has Just left Brussels, assures me that Emperor William was there on Monday on his way tack from the western headquarters. Tho fact of hla presence was not generally known, and he remained only a few hours. "Another acquaintance, who has Just come from Berlin, tells me that In three days SO tralnloads of horses and men. drawn from the western theatre of war, have left Berlin for Posen, This weak ening of the Germans' cavalry force in Flanders he believes to ba due, in part, to the fact that the fighting oo the west em aide Is largely- confined to the artillery and the Infantry, but the main reason Is the urgent need of cavalry rejnforpe jnents to cope with the advance of the Russians In the east. "My Informant, who has special -sources of Information, tells roe -that the Oarman. strategy In Flanders is subject to severe criticism In military circles, and the ccfli manOr, said to po Von Kluk. has per sonally been taken to task by the Era peror, yet Von Kluk, U believed to have acted throughput In conformity with Im perial prders." riEE OTJTS OBFLIQHTS JSlectrio Current Poles Consumed in Rubbish Blaze, Fire In a. rubbish plant of the -Philadelphia Rapid Transit Company, at 30th street a.na; u3ivv wvv.i ,.n.n destroyed nearby eeitrc light poles wid nut off the supply of current, leaving a nreat part of that section la darkness.

Since It Is ft well-established precept that "Too much work makes Jack a dull boy," the delegates to the annual conven tion of the American Federation of Labor spoilt yesterday afternoon on on auto mobile sightseeing trip through Falr mount I?ark; that Is, ftfmo of them did. Other sat nrcund headquarters or wan dered about the city. "Swapping" yams Is a favorite pastime among the delegates when they are not engaged In the busi ness of the conclave and some of the stories I That Is how It became known that Georgo A. Tracy, of Snn Francisco, was nearly eaten by cannibals during the summer. Besides being president of the Snn Francisco Typographical Union, Tracy Is a commissioner of the Pannnin Pnclllc Exposition, in the Interest of the fair he traveled a great deal, among other places through the Far East. It was on this voyage, according to the talc, he, with several other Commissioners, visited n South Pacific Island. Tracy, who tips the scales nt about 400 pounds, wns tho cynosure of every ravage eye, nnd the matter wai a great puzzle to tho gioup. Later, when they met a Govern ment representative. It was easily ex plained, The brown-skinned gentlemen evidently were regarding Tracy as n de licious entree. James M. Lynch, of Syracuse, Commis sioner of Labor of tho Stntc of New Tork, Is tho exception that proves the rule. He Is the only man east of Missouri who still wears the broad-brimmed, soft, black hat of tho Western Congressman. Andrew Feruscth, Oelegate from the Seamen's Union, la n genuine salt nnd spns a yarn that smacks of the sea nnd a long cruise. If Gilbert were to have heard Fcruselh the "Ynrn of tho Nancy Bell" would havo died aborning. One of the busiest men is John A. Phillips, member of the executive com mittee of tho Central Labor Union, of this city. Phllllpd Is In chargo of tho Union Label Exhibit and ho has to answer as many questions as Ledger Central. P. J. McGrath, of Pittsburgh, delegate from the Street Carmen's Union, declares emphatically that his home city Is not as black oo It Is painted. He says any person can provo that to his own satis faction by going out and looking ovor the situation for himself. That's a safe way to answer the charge. Whpn n vivo voce vote Is called for, the delegates from the International Brother hood of Teamsters, Chauffers, Stablemen nnd Helpers lean back In admiration while Martin Teager, of this city, presi dent and business agent, votes a la Pol Plancon for the entire representation. When Yeagcr is In form, and that Is nearly always, his "Yea" or "Nay" sounds like fifty". Frank Morrison, secretary of the Fed eration, wears invariably, a low cut waist coat, a dazzling white shirt, a Btralght collar and a black bow tie. Morrison has shaken so many hands since the oponlng of the convention that his hand aches. William E. GrlfllB, member of the Or ganization Council of the Philadelphia Typographical Union, has been trying for two wholo days to tell a story. He usually gots ns far as: "Here's a now one. Tho other day a friend of mine was coming down Chestnut street whim-" then somebody calls him and tho story has to wait. He says he will tell the story if it takes two weeks. Not all the news received by the dele gates Is pleasant. Thomas Tracy, of Washington, D.' C secretary of the Union Label Convention, was summoned to his home yesterday by a telegram stating his wife Is critically ill. The delegates appreciate tha handsome reception given them by this city. They are unanimous In. asserting they wero surprised by the unprecedented nmount of appropriation made them by Councils, and they feel convinced no other city In the East would have treated their organization so royally. Harry W. Semple, of this city. Is vice president of the Pennsylvania State Fed eration of Labor, manager of the Trades Union News and a member of several important committees. Otherwise his time Is his own. J. Hampton Leonard, editor, publisher and proprietor of the Pitman Reporter, Clayton Reporter and Weekly Item, Btepped In to see the union label exhibit yesterday. He distributed cards to ail the delegates within reach and asked for theirs In return. The next issue of the Pitman Reporter, et al will contain mention of the "big ddin's."

Macken zie, at ono time an official in the Singer Sewing Mnchlno Company. According to tho Information on which Hnrtman's Indictment wns secured, his thefts cover a period of three years, dur ing which tlmo he operated with tho woman's stocks on tho strength of tho power of attorney she unwittingly grant ed him. Ills speculations have deprived her of her entire fortune, It is alleged. Through Mrs. Mnckenzlo's attorney It wns learned sho had been forced to give up lur home, and that, with her children, sho has sought smaller quarters. Hnrtmnn was nrrcsteil ns he wns en tering the Vandcrbllt Hotel.

Sev eral times he appealed to him for ad vice concerning tho handling of tho fortune her husband had loft her. Later In that year they met again In this country". Mrs. Mackenzie hail bor rowed from tho Hudson County Na tional Bank of New JeTscy $74,000, giving as security 1440 shares In tho Singer Sewing Machine Company, and in their conversations she mentioned this fact to Hartman. In December, 1011. Mrs. Mackenzie re ceived a telephone mesoago purporting to como from tho Hudson County Na tional Bank, Informing her that she must take up her notes nt once. Then, it Is olloged, she again appealed to Hartman for counsel. Hartman, she clnlms, of fered to take up tho notes for her. Sho consented, and on the following day ho returned with papers for her to sign, ac cording to accusations, saying that they were merely formalities required by tho bank. The papers, It developed later, were powers of attorney. Taking the 1440 shares of stock that wero turned over to him after paying her debts, so Mrs. Mackenzie says, he went to the Seaboard Bank, and there put them up as collateral for a loan of $100,000. Gradually all of her stocks fol lowed the course of those of the sowing machine company. During the two years that followed the granting of the power of ntlorney Hart man paid Mrs. Mackenzie sums of money that she supposed were dividends on the stock she still Imagined she held. Ac cording to Assistant District Attorney Delehanty, however, practically all ot tne money that Hartman turned over to her was secured by floating more of her stockB and bonds. BUSINESS VENTURES DISASTROUS. Hartman, it is alleged, In the meantime, squandered all of the money he failed to turn over to her In Ill-advised com panies. Tyson & Co. was the first ven ture of any magnitude after meeting Mrs. Mackenzie. Next he invested heavily in a company to promote the sales of a cleapslng powder. The company failed, and Hartman, according to tho lawyers, found himself In llnanclal straits that re quired Immediate action. Calling on Mrs. Mackenzie one evening he found her wearing several valuable jewels. By frightening her with stories of unprotected women being robbed, she says, he Induced her to give the Jewels to him so that he might put them In a safe deposit (vault. He secured a. box for her at the Hiirrimau National Bank, but when Mrs. Mackenzie came to look for her Jewels several weeks later she found that two diamond rings, valued at $3)00, had disappeared.
