A DENVER. .Tuly 20 The Western Fcd-
,1 cratlon of Miners today voted down a
proposition to elect oftlcers by referen-
Jn dum vote. It was hinted that the pro-
f ifS posed change was primarily for the pur-
pM pose of defeating President Charles H.
, III Mover for re-election. The scheme was
3- to have th.? convention nominate two
candidates for the position and submit
j .' , their names to the unions for vote as to
it" choice. The one receiving the highest
1 - vote was to be declared president by
jjr the executive board. In the meantime
J jl Moyer would continue in the office until
' li announcement of the unions' choice was
! (j made. The proposition, made in the
; 13 form of a resolution, was overwhelming-
i j ly defeated.
j The convention also voted an asscss,-
tj ment against each member of one shift's

iff there Is no opposition to Moyer at pres-

not safeblowcrs, as he suspected, and let
them go.
A few blocks further on the act was re

his identity is suspected. The other pas
sengers also are ignorant of his identity.
Miss Lenevc refrains from talking. The
pair have no baggage.
"They cannot be parted and are very
reticent. Dr. Crlppen has stated that
he has traveled much. He puts In much
of his time reading books. He is very
sleepless at nights.
"I first suspected the Identity of tho
couple two hours after leaving Antwerp,
when I got the tlrst clue. Dr. Crlppen
says with regard to his companion, who
is disguised as a boy. that he Is taking
him to California. The boy. says the
doctor, is in bad health. They spend
much time together in their rooms. Or
dlnarllv they are bright and cheerful,
but at times both show signs of decided
worry- Dr. Crlppen Is booked aa a mer
chant. The woman, disguised as a boy,
is booked as a student.
"This" Is the first account given to any
newspaper.
"KENDALL, Commander."
Will Arrivo Sunday.
The Canadian Pacific steamer Mont
rose, carrying among her passengers twr
persons believed by Captain Kendall to
be Dr. Hawley H. Crlppen and his typ
ist. Ethel Clara Lenevc. steamed through
the strait of Belle Isle this morning.
This places the vessel, about whose ar
rival the greatest Interest centers, some
500 miles east of Father point. She is
expected to take on a pilot here Sunday
morning.
Early today a thlrty-two-milc wind
swept away the fog that had covered
tho broad mouth of the St. Lawrence
river since last evening, and the Mont
rose will not experience delay unless the
weather predictions for tho next forty
eight hours fail.
The White Star liner Laurcntlc, aboard
which Is Chief Inspector Dew of Scot
land Ynrd, already had entered the St.
Lawrence, and under favorable condi
tions should pass this point between 3
o'clock and 6 o'clock this afternoon. At
:j a. m. today she twas 165 miles eastof
here. The purpose of Scotland Yard has
been accomplished, in that Inspector
Dew. traveling on a faster steamer, has
outstripped the suspects and he will bo
in a position to make his attempt at
Identitlcatlon when the "John Robinson
and "John Robinson, Jr.." of the Mont
rose passenger list, arrive at a Canadian
port.
Plans of Officers.
The provincial police understand that
Dew will land here and wait for the
Montrose. His subsequent procedure Is
a matter of doubt here. He may board
the Montrose and continue to Quebec. It
Is believed that his plans havo been
worked out with tho minutest detail and
that there can be no hitch.
Chief McCarthy of the Quebec provin
cial police will make the arrest of Dr.
Crlppen if he should prove to be on
board the Montrose. Tho chief received
word todav that arrangements had been
made between Scotland Yard and the
dominion government whereby Inspector
Dew will be permitted to land here under
a pclal order suspending the quaran
tine regulations, and the Quebec official
Is prepared to co-operate with the Scot
land Yard man In whatever course the
latter may adopt. .. . n
The Allan line steamer Sardinian,
which passed here early today, helped
materially In the early stages of the
trans-Atlantic pursuit. It was this ves
sel that picked up the strange wireless
from the Montrose and relayed to the
European coast the word that two per
sons believed to be Dr. Crlppen and Miss
Lencve were aboard the Montrose. The
plans of the police are based, of course,
on the assumption that Crlppen and his
companion are aboard the Montrose This
fuct has not been 'absolutely established
from the police standpoint. Neverthe
less the frequent wireless messages which,
have been received since the Montrose
got Into touch with this side of the At
lantic tend to confirm the belief that
Captain Kendall Is correct in tbe mat
ter of identification.
Not Yet Arrested.
These messages are In varying degrees
of posltlvencss. some maUJng the ex
plicit statement that Crlppen Is aboard
the steamer, others reiterating the fact
that the suspected parties are aboard.
Tho messages have definitely established
that no actual arrests have been mado
thus far, , , ,
It was Dew who interviewed Crlppen
In London and he knows the man well.
It was Dew also to whom Scotland Yard
says Crippen's promise was given that
he would not leave London until the
mystery surrounding the disappearance
of his actress wife. Belle Elmore, was
cleared up.
A personal element enters into the
keen activity of Inspector Dew, as he
has been sharply criticised by the press
and public in London and by some mem
bers of parliament for not arresting
Crlppen at the time suspicion was first
strongly directed against him.

STRIFE IN SPAIN
NOW OMINOUS
Continued from Page One.
Vatican refuse to show conciliation, the

with Its measures of reform, including
the restriction of religious orders and
the regulation of education and the gen
eral relations of the church and state.
As a measure of precaution, all re
ligious demonstrations arranged for Sun
day havo been prohibited. The Vlscayan
Catholics declare that they will march

measure.
LUCID EXPLANATION
OF THE CONTROVERSY
Almost Immediately after the recent
general election in Spain, which had
greatly strengthened the position of the
new prime minister, Senor Jose Caile
Jas, it was announced that "a policy of
religious liberty" would be prosecuted
with vigor. Precisely what this meant
did not" become apparent outside the
Spanish peninsula until the controversy
over so-called religious emblems had led
to animated correspondence between tho
ministry of instruction in Madrid on tho
one hand and the papal nuncio on the
other. The representative of his holi
ness In Spain was apprized that "the
communicants of non-Catholic cults have
the right to place the emblems of their
faith on the edifices where they assem
ble for worship " This matter, while
superficially trifling, Is really important,
the Paris Temps says, owing to what It
Implies with regard to Interpretations of
other provisions of the Spanish consti
tution. That Instrument prohibits pub
lic manifestations of non-Catholic faiths.
Prime Minister Canalejas professes now
to be interpreting it rationally. By pub
lic manifestations he understands "dem
onstrations in the streets," which, at the
moment, are permitted only to the Ro
man Catholic religion. "As In all coun
tries." to quote an authorized statement
by the prime minister, "there should be
in 5paln Protestant churches and even
synagogues which ought to be able to
bear upon their walls the Insignia de
noting the character of their creed. And
against" this, clericalism, in the full flush
ol the twentieth century, objects." But
Prime Minister Canalejas. according to
the Paris Temps. Is Inexact. What the
Vatican objects to Is not the display of
the emblems, but the language of the
edict authorizing them, which, by im
plication, denies that the national church
of Spain Is holy. Roman. Catholic and
apostolic Current Literature (August).
MATTER IS ONE OF
INTEREST IN WASHINGTON
WASHINGTON. July 29. The treat
ment of non-Catholic denominations in
Spain has been watched closely by the
diplomatic representatives of the United
States at Madrid The Investigation of
190tJ came as the result of a protest filed
with President Roosevelt by Rev. John
Lee and Bishop L. B. Wilson. Acting
Secretary of State Bacon at that time
asked Minister Collier to report on the
status of non-Catholic denominations of
Spain.
In his report Minister Collier called
the attention of tho state department
to the existing constitution, which desig
nated the Catholic religion as that of the
state and obligated Spain to maintain its
worship and its ministers. The Ameri
can minister quoted the section which
declared that no one should be interfered
with because of religious opinions, but
that no ceremonies or manifestations In
public, except those of the religion of
the state, were to be permitted.
Mr. Collier said that funeral services
were never interfered with even when
Protestant ministers appeared In their
clerical capacity on 'the streets, that
churches and chapels might be built, but
that distinctively ecclesiastical architec
ture, calculated to proclaim the building
as the seat of a Protestant form of wor
ship, was not allowed, or at least that
the Protestants had refrained from such
form of architecture.
PRETENDER READY TO
"LEAD THE BATTLE"
SAN SEBASTIAN. Spain. July 29.
Don Jaime of Bourbon, the Carllst pre
tender to the Spanish throne. Issued a
manifesto today to the Carllsts In parlia
ment congratulating them on their loy
alty to the pope and their defense of the

"I think the day Is not far distant
when my followers must rally to our

OKLAHOMA'S GROWTH
SHOWN BY CENSUS
WASHINGTON. July 29 The total
population of the state of Oklahoma,
lacking three enumeration districts, was
announced tonight by the census bureau
as 1.651,951, as compared with 1.114.177,
according to the special census of 1907.
showing an increase since 1907 of 1G.8
per cent.
The population of the state was made
public because of the fact that there is
to be held in the state next month an
election in which the question of negro
suffrage Is paramount.
The figures show the total negro popu
lation of the state to be 13S,t5"5, as com
pared with 112.160 In .1907.
The population of the territory now
recognized as the state of Oklahoma was,
according to the census of 1900. 700,391.
the population of 1910 representing an
Increase of 109 per cent.
Under this computation Oklahoma
would be entitled to one more congress
man, nnd probably two. the exact num
ber depending entirely upon the basis
of apportionment. At present 'there are
five members of the house from Okla
homa, but this number was arbitrarily
fixed when Oklahoma entered the union.

was made today that the directors of
the Atlas Portland Cement company,
which has a capitalization or $12,500,000.
have decided to suspend the dividend on
Its common stock for tho present. The

"In view of extraordinary capital ex
penditures, both for Increase In capacity
of production at Port Hampton, Pa., and
Hannibal. Mo., an1 the erection of a new
plant at Hudson. N. Y.. the board of di
rectors has decided that It is to your In
terest to suspend dividends for the pres
ent. In order that the company itself may
thereby care for these extraordinary ex
penditures rather than endeavor to
finance them In a market where condi
tions so unfavorable to Investment pre
vail. Accordingly until further notice
no dividends will be paid on the common
stock of this company.
"JOHN P.. MAXWELL, Secretary."
The officials of the company today de

In any way.
PANAMA CANAL CONTRACT
MAY FIGURE IN CASE
WASHINGTON, July 29 The Atlas
Portland Cement company has a contract
with the government to furnish 4.500,000

tract covers a period of three years, the
first delivery under it having been made
about a year ago. Deliveries arc now
mndc at the rate of about 5S00 barrels a
day.
At the time of the acceptance of the
contract a protest was lodged with the
secretary o war by Congressman Ben
nett cf New York on behalf of a lower
conditional bidder. The bid of the Atlas
Portland Cement company at about $1.19
a barrel, th exact cost depending on
whether the cement was delivered In bar

disperse. Before troops could be sum
moned cars had been 3toned and the guil
ty persons had made their escape.
Notable exceptions were on the north
side, where, after crews had been driven
from cars and beaten, threats were made

drive the people into their homea wjth
riot clubs.

MOODY FIRM IN
DECISION TO RETIRE
MAGNOLIA. Mass.. July 29. Associate
Justice William H. Moody of the United
Slates supreme court has definitely stated
that he will announce his retirement from
the bench prior to the expiration of the
enabling act passed In his behalf by the
last congress. This act expires the
middle of November.
In order that the president might be
relieved of any embarrassment due to
conflicting reports of Justice Moody's In
tentions. It is said the Jurist some time
ago informed Mr. Tnft of his purpose
to quit the bench. The president has
twice been at Magnolia to see Justice
Moody this summer, and on both occa
sions urged him to take all the time he
desired In making up his mind. Justice
Moody replied that his decision' was ir
revocable. Justice Moody's health is Improving,
but he feels he will not be strong enough
tp assume the arduous luties of the com
ing term, which is to be taken up with
most serious questions. He will retire
In the hope that a complete rest for
awhile, devoid of all worries as to his
future status, may restore him to full
strength.
The president now faces the responsi
bility of appointing two associate Jus
tices of the supreme court and desig
nating a chief Justice.
Advices from Beverly are that the
president has not changed his attitude
with respect to the chief Justiceship.
Governor Hughes still appears to have
the field practically to himself.
