^- a murder in which they were jointly con-
}lfi* oer^ied. , 'V -*$ On - Christmas . #ve, 1901, with their J'5 oousin, Harvey .Brace, the three brothers drove from their : home-in JCinderhook, lome fourteen miles, to the hamlet of Greendale, In ' Columbia county, where 'lived Peter,A. Hallenbeck, the uncle of the Van Wormers. On the way they - topped at' the Greendale church, where 'they stole from the vehicles of the farm s ' *. 'era a number of robes and whip*- Thence ?- they went on to the Hallenbeck house, Ti where Mr. Hallenbeck," his wife and his ? aged ^mother were sitting: in the lamplight In . thei living-room. Both the women sajr them drive past. ^ '' f - 8hot Their Uncle. A few momen ts later there w as a knock at the door, and Mr. Hallenbeck answered - It, to And masked men before him, armed with revolvers, Burton Van Wormer led / the way, and with him the old man grap pled. A t once all four began a fusilade V1 ?: of pistol shots, which fairly riddled the / body of Hallenbeck. f Mrs. Hallenbeck, the wife, ran into the kitchen and the brothers shot at her but missed. Her husband ordered her to flee and she ran upstairs, whither the older woman had preceded her, and the two barricaded themselves in the attic. Mr. Hallenbeck, altho mortally wounded, broke away from his assailants and went to. the landing of the stairs, where he ke pt a.loaded shotgun. The assailants "aw him get the gun and fled. The old man fell to the floor and died. The four young men were soon after arrested, betrayed by their foot prints in 'the snow, and because they were known ^ [to have harbored bitter feelings and to V have made threats against their uncle. IThey were brought to trial before an j extraordinary term of the supreme court appointed by Governor Odell and presided over by Justice Alden Chester of Albany, 'on March 30, 1902. Turned State's Evidence. Harvey Bruce turned state's evidence and it w as to a large extent upon his |testimony that the conviction of the Van Wormer brothers was secured. H e swore 'that upon the ride back from the scene of the crime, each of the brothers boasted of having shot the uncle. It w as shown that the bitterness which .the brothers felt toward their uncle w as due chiefly to his having foreclosed a mortgage upon the property in Greendale owned by their step-mother, the loss, of Iwhlch compelled their removal to Kinder hook Brothers Found Guilty. On April 18 all three men were found guilty and sentenced to be put to death in the week ending May 30, 1902. Their ap I peal to the court of appeals acted as a stay and the case went over to the pree- ' ent year. Judge O'Brien, in writing the unanimous opinion of the higher court against the appeal, pronounced incredible 'the main plea of defense, that the expe dition of the four to Hallenbeck's house was in the nature of a young man's prank, the fatal outcome of which had not been a part of the plan. The court fixed upon the week of July t6h for the carrying out of the death sen 'tence, but the Van Wormer's have been [twice respited by Governor Odell. Except for the efforts of Judge Cady in their b e- fhaJf, and for the futile* attempt by Mrs. i Van Wormer, the step-mother of the con jdemned men, to appeal to Governor Odell no voice has been raised in their behalf. It is known that Governor Odell would have welcomed any plausible ground upon j which to commute the sentence, as he felt that little good would result to the | public mind from the morbid interest at taching to the triple execution. Bruce Gets 18 Years. Harvey Bruce, their fellow in the crime * for which they died to-day w as tried alone and was sentenced to imprisonment for eighteen years. Mrs. Hallenbeck soon followed her hus band to the grave, as also did the aged mother of the murdered man. A brother, George A. Hallenbeck, survives, but he is broken in health and nerve by the awful tragedy enacted almost within his hear-, ln&- The triple execution og tolday raised to a total of seventy-three the list of mur derers who have died in the electric chair. The simultaneous execution of three brothers is not unprecedented in the his tory of New York state, altho to find the parallel one must go back to June 7, 1825, when three Brothers, Nelson, Israel. Jr., and Isaack Thayer, of the town of Boston, Krie county, were hanged simul taneously on a triple gallows erected at the west side of Niagara square in the city of Buffalo. The crime for which the Thayers died was the butchery of a ped dler named John Love. McKITTRICK DEAD Iowa Man Passes Away at the Na tional Capital.

CALL FOR THE EXTRA SESSION In It the President Will Eefer Only to the Necessity for Cuban Reciprocity. ( Washington, Oct. 1.President Roose velt, will not wait until the last of Octo ber to issue his proclamation calling con gress in extra session on Nov. 9. H e need not issue such proclamation until ten days before the date fixed, but in view of the general discussion, he consid ers It as well tq issue his proclamation within the next week or ten days. The - most importa nt phase of this question is as to the purpose of the call. The president has been urged by the ad vocates of financial legislation to include that in his call and recommendation. Some of these men were insistent on having the president advance the date to early in October, to give time for currency legislation. But the counsel of more experienced heads in congress against such action prevailed and it Is now the purpose of the president to con fine his call and his recommendations to the completion of legislative action for Cuban reciprocity.

Such a man is a revelation to the world H e sees new vision of life, ja.nd what he discovers he discovers not for himself alone, but for all the race. "There is an inside view of life and an outside view. The point of view mak es a vast difference in the judgment con cerning life. Looked at from without, life is. an enigma. Looked at from within,' the universe is ma de plain. The point of view makes the difference. "Having had a vision of the throne of God lifted up and exalted, the man must move up to that plane of life or die Isaiah's vision led to action. " Professor Horswell was listened to with earnest attention by a large audience, and many words of appreciation were spoken by those who heard the lecture.

Zenith City, but $55 Per Lamp ," ,^ * Per Year. Special'to The Journal. Duluth, Minn., Oct. 1,Jan, 1 next gas for all purposes in this city will cost 90 cents per thousand feet. This is a reduc tion of ?1 sinoe the gas lighting plant w as taken over by the municipality. Contrib uting to this remarkable drop in price Jtave been better management under mu nicipal ownership and a, larger consump tion but this latter has been due to bet ter management and continued reduc tions. Under present contracts and at the rate of growth now made, 75-cent gas is 'in sight.. The story of the fight to secure munici pal ownership of water and gas in Duluth has been told, and the results are such that every Duluthian is glad the struggle was made and succeeded. The city has jbeen especially fortunate in the charac ter of men appointed to its water and light board and in their selection of a manager. Success in one field of lighting natur ally brought up the question of public control and ownership of the other, and Duluth stands committed to municipal electric light. Proper legislation has been secured and bonds have been authorized that are sufficient to install a plant for street lighting. No effort has been ma de to erect such a plant, as the present pri vate lighting company has a contract that holds for three years at $55 per year, all night and every night for a 2,000 nominal candler-power. lamp. This bid w as ma de by the company in order to shut off the possibility of a public plant, and $55 is from $3 to $5 per light per year cheaper than experts figured that the city could furnish an equivalent light. These figures ranged from $58 to $60 per light. The authorization of bonds for a mu nicipal plant was voted in 1900, at the election at which was adopted the new city charter. I t is not probable that any purchaser can be found for that issue of bonds until after the state supreme court shall have held the issue a legal one. All things considered, a municipal light ing plant for Duluth is not a matter of thd near future, nor is it very definite. But the light and water department proposes to secure the adoption, if possible, of a high candle-power mantle incandescent gas lamp for street work at the end of the present electric light contract.

Unions Bring Peace. In .'spite of strikes here and there, organized lab? has established and is establishing a great er 'degree of uninterrupted industrial peace by agreement with employers. Such agreement im plies the organization -of the working people iu factories, shop, mill or mine, for an organized body of workmen can only enter into an agree ment with employers and faithfully abide by and carry into' execution the terms of such agree ment when all the workingmen of an employer, at least in any given plant, are aH' members of the unio\u - '-j '-- .- : v .'. .... .- .?.- _ The so-eaUed "open shop" makes - agreement with the employers impracticable, if- not im possible, for the union cannot be responsible for the non-unionists whose conduct often renders the terras of the agreement ineffective and nugatory. The agreement or joint bargain of organized labor with employers depends for its success not onlv upon the good will of the union and the employer toward each other, but that neither shall be subject to the irresponsibility or lack of-intelligence of the non-unionist or his failure to act in concert with and bear the equal respon sibility of the unionists. The right of the nonunionist to work, when and for whom he pleases, carries with it the logical right of the unionist to work or refuse to work when, where and lor what he pleases, and with whom he pleases. -..'. Deprecate UBO of Torce. To a nonunionist, despite that which his adr vocates say for him, cannot be attributed the virtue of helping his fellow workmen or con tributing toward the establishment of more rightful relations between workingmen and their employers. No force but that of persuasion and moral and intelligent influence should be exer cised to convert the nonunionist to membership in our organization, but it is hurtful from every view point, and to every enlightened interest, to advocate the "open shop." As the immortal Lincoln said: "This country cannot long remain half free and half slave," so -say we, that any establishment cannot long remain or be successfully operated part union and part nonunidn. In connection with the meeting of the "execu tive council and by appointment, a ~ conference was held with the President of the United States for the-purpose of discussing important labor leg islation. The eight-hour bill was considered at length, the president stating that his mind had not changed on that form of legislation since he had favored it as Goverlor of New York, and, therefore, was favorable to' the passage of the proposed aot.

'"'* *"""""" ""-y sifi^iteflp-gliMAi, OCTOBER 1, 1908. ^* The Killer Case. Other important questions affecting legislation, as per decision of the last convention, were taken up and on behalf of the International Bookbinder's union, the Miller case was dis cussed. The executive council brought to the president's attention the manner in which his decision had been quoted, and in addition to the relationship of Mr. Miller to the bookbinders' union, as brought forth in the charges against him, the "open shop" idea was carefully con sidered. Replying to statements on the subject, President Roosevelt set forth that in his deci sion he had nothing in mind but a strict com pliance with, federal, including civil service, law, and that he recognized the difference be tween employment by the government', circum scribed by those laws, and any other form of employment, and that his decision in the Miller case should not be understood to have any other effect or influence than affecting direct employ ment by the government In accordance therewith. He furthermore made plain that in any form of employment excepting that so circumscribed he believed the full employment of union men was preferable' either ,to nonunion or "open shops." Stand for Union Shops. In view of the publicity given this subject, the executive council of the American Federation of Labor takes this opportunity to say that the trades union movement stands for the strictly union shop, experience having proved that where the "open shop" system has been tried, reduc tions in wages and profits have ensued, with general disaster to the industry practicing that system, and therefore declares that the best in terests of the labor movement call for the em ployment of union workers and discourages in every way,- shape and form the deteriorating ef fects which follow the recognition of the "open shops." / The toiling masses, especially the organized wage earners, cannot, must not and will not surrender one jot of that which they have se cured must organize the yet unorganiied, unite and federate those already organized to present a soUd phalanx of the grand army of labor in earnest and emphatic protest against judicial usurpation or capitalistic Invasion of our rights, attempted no matter by whom or whatsoever source. The hope for right and justice here after, as well as the, perpetuation of liberty, and our republican Institutions, lies in organized labor. Therefore, with the consciousness of the jus tice and soundness of our position, we appeal to the judgment of all men, and particularly to the toilers of America, that they organize unite and federate without regard to their trade calling, nationality, locality, sex, politics, color or religion.
