'$h&rf HOUSE WRECKED^ IN HAD CHARIVARI ^f Now Father of Bridegroomv Is Swearing Out Warrants Against Whole Village. Journal Special Service. Perryopohs, Pa.} March 14.Ju Ihe matter of charivaris, Perryopohs can give any other town in thu state aces and spades. As tHe result of the last one on which the town turned itselt loose, warrants have beon issued for the arrest of nearly every man in the place big enough to throw a stone or hre a gun. Warrants are still being sworn out. Up to date they total nearly nlty. H. J. Mossbur\, whose son T\as mar ried a few nights ago, is responsible for the warrants. Before his sou was mar ried Mossbury was the owner of a fine house surrounded with trim fences and set off by many trees, in which Moss bury took pride. Since the marriage Mossbury and his family have- had to sleep in the barn. His house is a wreck. There isn't any thing like a fence" near it and the trees look as if they had tried to stop a cy clone. Time of Its Life. But the town had. the tirae of its lii'e th night of the wedding. Every shot- 8ie un in a radius of five miles added to gaiety. More than 500 shots were fired. Most of them went thru the house, reducing it to the nature of a sieve. Half a dozen sticks of dyna mite completed its devastation. The fences made bonfires, in the light of which the youth of the town kept up the serenade'' until early in the morn inc. When it was over and the serenaders had ieft, Mossbury. and his family crawled out of the cellar and gathered up about five bushels of empty shot shells in what had beeri his front yard. He will use this as evidence against the men he has had arrested. The affair started pleasantly enough, but Mossbury refused to "give up.'' and hi 3 BOH and his new daughter in-law appeared on the front porch when the serenaders came and bowed gracefully. But that did not go. A Shower of stones showed that it did not. One of the stones struck Moss bury where it hurt and he lost his tem per. He drew a revolver and fired a shot in the air. Air Full of Shots. From that time until the morning the air was full of shots and noise. The serenaders riddled everything they could while their ammunition lasted, and when that was gone brought on the dynamite. Mossbury says he and his family were seared out of their wits, and for this and the damage to his house he clares he will make the serenaders pay or go to jail. If all the men he nas had arrested go to jail there will be no one left to do work in Perryopohs. COAL MINERS IN STRIKE COUNCIL United Mine Workers'Meet Again and Generally Predict a Strike. Indianapolis, March 14.The series of meetings, conventions and confer ences in Indianapolis in which an effort is to be made to deal with the labor 'crisis in the coal industry was opened today by the session of the internation al executive board of the United Mine Workers. The miners' special conven tion will meet at 10 o'clock tomorrow. All of the delegates that have arrived in the city thus far seem to be con vinced that a grave situation confronts them, and that a. maionty of them be lieve that there will be a strike April 1. The delegates from the anthracite dis tricts are following the example of their leaders and are not talking. President Mitchell said today that the/ anthracite miners would hold another convention. That, he said, was pro- Z- vided for in the resolution adjourning the December convention at Shaniokin. I will not be held until after the In dianapolis convention and joint confer ences. The anthracite miners scale com mittee will probably meet with Presi dent Mitchell tonight if the work of the international executive board is out of the way. ni The international executive board session today is held behind closed doors, and as usual the board members maintain silence even to members in their own ranks. The board's purpose was to review the situation and it was expected. thtit "before ad^jo-arinxieiit- this evening it would probably tentatively outMne a policy to be presented to the convention.

This action^ the friends of statehood for Indian Territory and Oklahoma fear, will en tirely defeat the measure. The com mittee can retain the bill indefinitely and should it appear that there are "insurgent" votes enough to concur with the senate, the bill would not, they say, be brought into the house. Under the rules of the house a sen ate amendment to a house bill which changes the charge onthe treasury sends the bill to committee automatic ally. The amendment in question is one granting lieu lands to the new state for school purposes in case sections 13 and 83, reserved in each township, prove to be mineral lands. Altho the bill goes to committee with out a motion in the house, it is still on the speaker's table. Unless some mem ber insists that the reference be made at once, the plan, is to defer the refer ence until the return of members who have gone south on a nver and harbor inspection tour. An agreement was made before theyJeft whereby nothinfr was to be done with the statehood bill until their return. The news that the bill was to go to committee was somewhat disconcerting to the "insurgents," who have been bending their energies to strengthen their numbers in the execution of a direct vote on a motion to concur in the senate amendments to the bill. If' some way had not been discovered to send the bilj to committee, this motion to concur would have been order and would have taken precedence over a motion to disagree and go into con ference. Just how the "insurgents" are to meet the new situation has not tee decided upon so far as can be ascer tained. Babcock Speaks. Mr. Babcock of Wisconsin took the floor in the house today for a speech on statehood. He said the house bill was one of the greatest legislative out rages ever enacted, that the senate had properly amended the bill and he fa vored the senate Amendment. He dealt at length on the reasons why Arizona and New Mexico should not be united as one state. Applause on both sides of the chamber greeted Mr. Bab cock's conclusion. 24th Annnal Bedaced-Price Sala. The Great Plymouth Clothing House. SAYS DYNAMITERS ARE NO UNIONISTS Hays of Idaho Declares Western Federation of Miners as Anarchists' BandU Journal Special Service. Chicago, March 14."The members of the western Federation of Miners are not labor union men, but anar chists, says S. H. Hays of Boise, Idaho, who was attorney general of Idaho in 1899 and 1900 tinder Governor Steunen berg, recently assassinated for his ef forts in driving the disturbing element from the Coeur d'Alene district into Colorado. "The efforts in Chicago and other cities to raise money to save the, dyna miters are entirely misdirected^ so far as the unions are concerned. The "West ern Federation of Miners is not a labor organization and its leaders have pub licly renounced union methods as too slow. It has no sympathy for peaceful and honest methods. It was Edward Boyce, one of its presidents, 'u I vwho ad vised every union man to carry a gun. "Tho the criminals have been driv en from Idaho, Colorado a lot are at large.

JU Hi Kansas City,*- Mo., March 14.Tho Standard Oil company, thru Alfred D. Eddy of Chicago, its general western attorney, has in effect notified Herbert S. Hadley, attorney general of Mis souri, who was in Kansas City today, that it will give him do more informa tion in his suit to oust the Standard and its allied companies from the state of Missouri than it is compelled to give. Mr. Hadley, in discussing the Stand ard 's attitude, said: "A'week ago today, when the testi mony of H. Clay Pierce was to have been taken before Commissioner R. A. Anthony of St. Louis, Mr. Eddy, attor ney for the Standard Oil company, stated to me that there would be no further resistance on the part of wit nesses already subpenaed in New York in answering the questions they had previously refused to answer. I then suggestecrto Mr. Eddy that if he would produce H. M. and W. H. Tilford and M. Van Buren before Commissioner Sanborn in New York, on March 24, I would not, as a matter of convenience, file an application in the supreme courtFm to bring them to Missouri. To the Supreme Court. "Mr. Eddy promised to give an an swer to this suggestion as soon as he could consult his clients in New York. He has assured me that he did not feel authorized to make this arrangement. Consequently if service on them is not secured at the time the taking of depo sitions is resumed in New York, I will ask the supreme court for an order to compel 'their appearance in Missouri." "What about John D. Rockefeller!" Mr. Hadley was asked. "Was there any discussion pertaining to him?" "The question of subpenamg John D. Rockefeller did not enter into the discussion -with Mr. Eddy. W have been and are still endeavoring to se cure service, but there are other wit nesses whose presence I am more anx ious- to secure.'' Cockrell Is'Angered. Francis M. Cockrell of the interstate commerce commission severely repri manded G. W. Mayer, Kansas City manager of the Standard Oil company, during thp investigation into the al leged methods of railroads and the Standard Oil company in^ discriminata iug against independent oil men here abouts. The lawyers for the commis sion and the lawyers for the independ ent oil producers had been trying hard to get from Mayer an admission that theie was any connection between the Standard Oil company, the Union Tank Line company, the. Republic Oil com pany, the .Waters-Pierce Onl company, and other companies. To all questions Mr. Mayer answered: I dovnot know.'' At the clo^e of his testimony Mr. Cockrell asked him: "Tell this commission, are the Re public Oil company and. the Waters Pierce Oil company part of the Stand ard Oil company?" I do not..know, sir." "What is your best impression fiboutit?" '-"I-have none." 1 ,k. Disgust Is Evident. Don 'f you feel and know in your heart that they are all part and par cel of the same company?" I do not know." "Don't you feel in your heart that it is so?" I don't know, sir." Then the veteran ex,-senator slapped the desk" with" his fist and said se verely: I am tired and sick of this effort made by Standard Oil people to con ceal this fact, when every man, wo man and child knows it is so. Now, everybody/wants the truth told here, and why don't you tell it? Every tub ought to stand upon its own bottom, and you folkB ought not to dod#e this question further." Pipe Line and Railroad. Half a dozen witnesses were still to be examined when the interstate com merce commission resumed its hearing here today. J. R. Koontz, general freight agent of ,the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railway, the first witness, was asked by Mr. Marchland, attorney for the commission: "Are the pipe lines of the Standard Oil company upon the right of-way of the Santa Fe railway?" "Yes, sir they are for a distance east of Sugar Creek (Kansas City), to a point somewhere in Illinois, where they branch off. ''West of Sugar Creek the pipe line is upon the light-of-way of the south ern Kansas division of the Santa Fe for a considerable distance." "How did the Standard Oil company get this right-of-way?" I do not know Mr. Koontz was questioned about the meetirig of traffic managers of different railroads in St. Louis in June, 1904, at whi(?h the oil rate east from IlBhois was raised from 10 cents to 17 cents a hundred pounds. He said that he was at the meeting. He did -not kno$ who called it. AIM, THOIME ^tHE MINMEAPOLI^OURNAB:,1ji*^i*S*l-} feast erts TRAPPED 'h.

The joker was sneaked into the bill in the house committee on interstate com merce in spite of the opposition of Chairman Heptrorn and Representative Mann, who will havi? charge of this subject when the bill gets into the house. An amendment was adopted in com mittee which was objectionable to the real friends of the bill, but it was only last night, when Dr.*Wiley's attention was called to the matter, that it be came evident what the real purpose of the amendment was. It proposed to create an extraordinary tribunal, su perior to the secretary of agriculture himself, altho heVdesignates bership. ~vt When thisT the mem eoni'hmtfie amendment is read and studied Sfna the manner in which it was profited into the bill is thoroly understood* there is ljut little doubt the people of the country who are honestly in favor of the passage of a pure food law will insist that* this crooked amendment, which absolutely is langeTOu to the life of the bill itself, shall be dropped. 3$ will be necessary to make a Ughfr on the floor of the house, because the amendment has been adopted by the* committee and is an essential part of the measure as it will come up for eon^ sideration within a short time.

When the atten tion of Senator Smoot was called to the statements \made by Mr. Clemenson, he entered the^most emphati^ denial of the whole story.

With. Hearst running for the presi dency on the democratic ticket, there might naturally be a tendency in repub lican circles to pick ,out the most con servative of all the available aspirants for that office. That man' is Fair banks. He is, so conservative that he is almost reactionary. He represents the old McKmley school of statesman ship, and probably at heart isn't in sympathy with a single one of the Rooseyelt policies. A Radical Issue. It will be a great fight in 190)8, and much will depevd upon what will take place in the next two years. It is hard ly too much to say ithat the conservative senators may go so far, if they have the power, as to give Mr. Hearst an ceedingly good chance. If the spring of 1908 rolls around with the impres sion that Roosevelt is a disappointed man that his campaigns of reform have come to naught that the consol idation of the great railroad and indus trial interests, under the same heads for the most part, is going on with unexampled rapidity, the country would be faced with a radical issue compared with which free silver was relatively weak. Hearst would carry as great a threat against property vajraes as Bryan, al tho in a different way. The pensioners would not be afraid that his success would scale down their from the government,4 "bd mosreceiptse of thf peo ple who -ilerive^ their support from in come-bearing investments would be just as much -afraid of Hearst as they were of Bryan. Such a campaign would overtop the tariff question. The democratic platform would doubtless pay a tribute to Roosevelt, while the republican platform would be more loyal tfo the conservative sen ators and Jess eulogistic of the radical president"- These 'are the circumstances lender which Hearst would be danger ous. Hearst or Bryan, on his radical platform, would claim to be representa tive of the common people, just as Bryan claimed in 1896, and it would be charged that the republican party, with its conservative platforp and candi date, was representative of the mon#y power, of the force, against whiMi President .Roosevelt is now contending. The nomination of as conservative -a man atf Fairbanks might easily lend color .t% this charge. MINNEAPOLIS FIRM'S $78,000 GLAIM DENIED By W. W. Jermane. Washington.

No Bate Revolution. The speaker ridiculed the objection that under the rate bill the interstate commerce commission would have the right to change all the railroad rates thrlout the country, saying that the fact that the bill provides that no change can be made except upon com plaint is a sufficient reply. Mr. Rayner replied to Mr. Foraker's argument that the rate makiiic power applies to differentials under the con stitutional provision that no preference shall be given to the ports of one state over those of another. Asserting that the terms "discrimination" and "dif ferentials" have been confused, he added: As to Differentials. "This^ present enactment, entirely ignoring the provisions of tne Esch Townsend bill in the last congress, re jecting the recommendations of the interstate commerce commission and disregarding the original recommenda-, tions of the presidentj^Kbsohitely de prives the commission from fixing ftr establishing .minimum ra4es, antl,*there,' fc^fe, iiiAesB it exercised an arbitrary power by lowering a perfectly reason able rate, it gives it no jurisdiction whatever over differentials and no pow er, to control the sales to competitive I know that the senator from Ohio claims and has argued that this bill confers the *ight upon the commission to adjust differentials. I say that it gives the commission no such power. 1 deny that upon any construction that can be put upon this language, there is any pdwer whatever in the commis sion to adjust relative rates and strike the- proper proportions between them. The ports of the United States, there for*, are not within the jurisdiction of the Hepburn act. If there is a dif ferential between different ports upon different lin es of railroads, there is no provision of this measure tnatr invests the commission with the right to change it." Oapp's Skilful Work. He stated that by the skilful exami nation of witnesses before the senate committee on interstate commerce, Mr. Olapp had developed the fact that in practically every case in which the commission has suggested a rate under th existing law, the suggestion has been adopted by the railroads. He urged that there should be no objection to taking the one step in advance which the pending bill takes. He declared his satisfaction with the bill as it passed the house and added: "I may require some slight changes ip? its phraseology, but its substantial revisions meet with my approval, I no fearcommission, or anxiety not est, that thev thperpetratslighte will &<$ Of vn-pistieer under tnis. measure, an I believe that the power of the courts under the fifth amendment is anipte to protect \he property ef _th carriers) "If the senate, however, should take a different view'and invest the courts, in addition to the inherent power that they now possess to protect the Tail roads tfrom confiscation, with the fur ther power to review the proceedings of the commission as to the reasonableness or justness of its orders, then shall in proper time offer an amendment that the courts Complete the work that is\jbe-v fore them and that they do not engage in the idle process of sending eases back again to the commission without any effective order or legal suggestion as to its future action." He did not believe that in exercising this prerogative the courts would be en croaching upon the domain of congress. As to Court Heview. On the question of a review of the findings ctf the commission bv the courts, Mr. Rayner said he had reached the conclusion that "under the Nebras ka decision in vthe ease of Smvthe vs. Ames the courts, with power reposed in them, iWill give sample protection, to the carriers in even' *as where the com mission does not allow them iust com pensation, .and will not compel them to prove that a single/rate it absolutely confiscatory. He would, however,, have under stood that he is opposed to the provj-1 sion permitting the courts' to suspend the orders of the commission during the pendency of the r/toceedings. I am," he said, "in favor of an amendment to the Hepburn bin vesting in the court the right to trv th? ques tion of unjust compensation wjth re straining orders abolished, and with the further right, if possible, to let the court fix the rate if it reverses the prder of the commission.
