Police Not Satisfied that Ohio Suspects Weren't the Right People. Five Macedonians, perhaps everyone f them a murderer, were shipped to Chicago by a Minneapolis labor agency Tuesdav morning, only a few hours after the awful slaughter in the old house at 43 Tenth avenue S. Police- officers in Chicago now have their descriptions and officers in the smaller towns farther east are searching the trains for them in case they went thru Chicago in an attempt to leave the country. A few hours after the murder was discovered by Patrolman Peterson of the South station, an interpreter came up to him and said that he had shipped the gang of five out the day before. They all appeared to be excited and in a hurry to leave the city, he says, and tbey would not tell where they had been working or whv they wanted to go back to Chicago where they originally Jived. There was a demand for foreign labor in the south, and the agent being short of men shipped them. The interpreter gave a fairly good description of the men. but. left without, telling the officer lis name. Fitted Duluth Descriptions. Little was thought of the matter un til yestevduy when clues began turning up in Chicago.

The New York police are watching the trains and ships and it will be hard for .them to get out of the country. Only five knives were found by the police who searched the house,,and now it appears that there were five men in the gang that left the city the morn ing after the slaughter. Some of out of the carn may have announced that he was a new i arrival and was greeted after the cus tom of his country by a kiss on the cheek, lie may have been welcomed with his three' associates and stayed long enough in the house to get ac quainted with the layout. Petros Stoyanoff, the old man Mho was helping the police yesterday, claimed to know nothing of the hack that stopped at the house Sunday after noon, altho he was about the house most of the time. Looking for Hackdriver. Work of the Minneapolis police will now be directed toward finding the hackdriver who took these four men there. Where did he first see them, and could any of them talk enough Eng lish to engage his services? Mrs. Thomas Sipult, 241 Tenth avenue S, who. saw the carriage and the men, could not reinjember how they were dressed. If the hackdriver can be found, this question may be settled and may even r.evefal.'the hiding place of one of the ^.murderers, If he wore a khaki uni -'iorni the police will feel certain, that "the four men were murderers. There. is at least hope of results in Chicago. Detectives J?assolt and JFotii eon, who are in that city telephoned to Superintendent Doyle last night that they wanted to spend more time there, and. that they had found relatives of the Kaleff brothers, four of the vic tims. The relatives claimed to know nothing-of themurder, but \re helping the detectives in their search thru the Macedonian quarters. Peter Stoyanoff went'back to Duluth early this'morning, and will aid the po lice there in checking up the gang, in which the six murdered men worked.

ALCOHOL BILL TO BE CROWDED THRU Friends of Measure Plan Vigorous House CampaignSenate May Cause Delay. Tho House May Pass Bill, Senate May Hold It Over Jit.. Session. im,t5: By W. W. Jermanc. Washington, March 31.The free al cohol bill won in a canter in the ways and means committee yesterday, and the vote of 16 to 2Grosvenor and Dal zell casting the only negative votesis believed to indicate the strength of the movement on the floor generally. It is the purpose of the friends of the proposed legislation to make a thoro canvass of the house membership, to ascertain the exact strength which the bill can command. Should the can vass be satisfactory, the bill will be brought before the house some day un der suspension of the rules and passed. It will require a two-thirds majority, to suspend the rules, but this, it is be lieved, can be easily secured. The house membership has been divided equally between Representatives Hill of Connec ticut, Landis of Indiana, Murdock of Kansas and Marshall of North Dakota, who purpose seeing every member and having him state his position definitely. Delay Is Likely. The next suspension day will be Mon day of next week, but the bill will not come up at that time. In the first place, the canvass of the house cannot be completed that soon, and in the next place it is doubted whether it would be wise to pass the bill and send it over to the senate, until after the rate bill, is out of the way. So. in all probabilis tic speaker will not permit the motion to suspend the rules to be made until toward the latter part of April.

V.v:" GOOD INDUSTRIES PRESIDENT ALOOF, IS AWAITIN TH E CRISIS Federal Operation of Hard and Soft Coal Mines as Penalty for Long Warfare. Operators Feel Strong, but Half a Mill ion Miners Will Be Idle on Monday. Special to The Journal. Chicago, March 31.A Washington special to the Chicago Tribune aays: -It is a serious thing, to say, and yet I believe I am justified in saying it, that if the strike of the bituminous and anthracite miners is permitted to con- tinue to the point where the piled-up stocks of both kinds of coal are practi- cally exhausted, so as to produce a paralysis of industrial operations, the gov- ernment of the United States, either thru the president or thru congress, or both, will, take^ action in the interest" of the people, constitution or no consti- tution. Take Possession of Mines. That is the feeling here today among men who ordinarily are conservative: They do not believe that either congress or the president has the right to dic- tate the terms on which men shall operate their mines. They do believe, how- ever, and that opinion was generally expressed today by republicans and demo- crats and by high officials almost within the walls of the White House itself, that if any such crisis arises, the United States government will take posses- sion of the mines, operate them for the benefit of the people and turn over tho money to its proper owners, leaving the operators and miners to agree among themselves if they can. Lesson of Four Years Ago. This is revolutionary sort of talk, yet it can be heard among the most conservative. A sufficient time has now elapsed to tell the real story of the coal strike of four years ago. That was settled by means of a commission appointed by President Koosevelt. ostensibly upon the earnest request of both. parties to the controversy. Practically speaking, neither party wanted the commission very much. The operators believed it would be made up of men of the demagogue stripe who would find in favor of the miners iii order to secure political gain.. The miners believed it would be packed with representatives of the great corporate interests who actually would find for the operators and railroads'with, whom _they Jf were affiliated. -^m Beady to Seize Mines. What made the miners and operators agree to accept the decision of a com- mission was the knowledge on their part, confidentially conveyed to them, that if they did not accept the proposal, President Roosevelt was ready to seize the coal mines of.Pennsylvania and operate them in the interest of the.public, protected by troops of the regular army if necessary. He was ready to put Gene-al Schpfiel^ in command of the anthracite coal mines of Pennsylvania and bar .^4)ot oj).erat or^ e^^ General'gchofiejd as^ extra-judicial receiver rampoiiuab/_ in charge of a natsplp product which is indispensable to the welfare of the people flit large. President Roosevelt was told flatly by Baer. and other operators, and lay some of the miners' representatives as well, that what he was threatening to do was unconstitutional and revolutionary. S'hey declared that if he took such action he would be impeached. "!3$ At a Great Emergency, The reply of the president, so I am told, was entirely characteristic of him. He declared the country had reached a great emergejiey which required extra- ordinary action. He informed President Baer and others that in the interest of public safety and to prevent a revolution, he would.himself, if it became neces- sary, assume all responsibility for the seizure of the anthracite fields. He de- clared he would exercise his authority as commander-in-chief of the army to open up the mines and to operate them in the interests of the people, selling.the product at a fair prica to the public and depositing the money to the credit,jpf the proper owners, to be claimed when and where they saw fit. Would. Bis Slmpeadunent. Furthermore', according to the story as I have learned it,, the president *&& he would .do this even if he knew he would be impeached -for his action. Be was willing to face impeachment he said, to relieve a situation which had be- come intolerable, and, while he did hot fix a time limit or say either operators or miners should accept the findings of the commission within a specified time, both sides went away from the preliminary conference fully aware of the fact that there was a man in the White House who was willing to resort to revo- lutionary tactics and to defy the constitution, if need be, in the face of a great crisi# which -was not contemplated by the constitution and which could not possibly be provided for in advance. Not Ready to Interfere. When it is said, therefore, that President Roosevelt will not interfere at the present time, it can easily be seen that it is because lie has not yet been invited in the right way by both sides and because there does not yet exist an extraordinary crisis which would justify him in resorting to the unusual exercise of the vast power which really is lodged in him by the constitution itself, which made him commander-in-chief of the army and navy, and which makes it treason for any officer or man in either service to conspire to defy ft his orders. If President Roosevelt was willing to take possession of the anthracite fields four years ago, when only the anthracite miners were out, and when the bitu- minous fields were supplying coal enough for most industrial plants, it docs not take much of a prophet to guess what would happen if the present strike extends for any length of time and closes up practically the entire coal supply of the countrv. Waits on Contestants. The president will appoint no commission until both sides ask him to do it and until they both agree in advance to accept the findings of the commis- sion. If both sides cannot agree to arbitration, either between themselves or thru the medium of the president, he will, when the proper time comes, act, and if the constitution is strained a little by the act, so much the worse for the constitution. HALF A MILLION MINERS QUIT Indianapolis, March 31.The national executive board of the United ^line Workers of America held a 'session, to day to take up in derail the manage ment of the strike which will begin in the anthracite and bituminous coal mining districts of the. country at the close of work today. Men numbering 509,500 will leave the mines this evening, not to return till their employers have signed the wage scale demanded by the miners in na tional convention. In the central competitive district, composed of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and western Pennsylvania, Monday will, be the eighth anniversary of the eight hour day concession and- will* be ob served as usual as a holiday. It was expected by members of the national executive board today that the scale would be signed in all probability by some of the operators of -western Pennsylvania, either this evening or Monday. Before the board went into executive session, members said a formal strike order would not be issued,.but at the close of work today the: men would leave the mines with their tools and would not return until the scale had been signed by the operators and they Mitchell and the Operators Will Meet Tuesday to Discuss Strike Problems.
