Crowds of brokers and speculators
in the rotunda of the new million
dollar Canadian Pacific Railroad
Hotel suddenly stopped roaring when
a man, hatless and perspiring, rushed
up to tie desk and demanded vocifer
ously immediate possession of the
building, tendering a check for $1,
000,000. He was removed to the asy
lum in Ponoka, where he is now vio
lently insane. He had just turned
over for about $40,000 a batch of
shares which cost him $500. He
couldn't stand it.
Everybody's nerves are tense.
Every pulse beat of the Discovery
well is carefully measured. "When
the oil "gushes," a responsive throb
is felt all down the line. The boot
black sleeps with his ten-cent certi
ficates under his pillow, and Mr.
Wallingford smokes longer and
blacker cigars.

ties and seceders from the Western
Federation of Miners. Practical mar
tial law is in effect, the police and
sheriff's men being under orders to
shoot to kill at the first sign of fur

Western Federation, attempted to
hold a meeting last night in miners'
hall to put forth a scheme for peace
between the warring factions of the
union which split when I. W' W. agi

Sheriff Driscoll and his deputies were
on guard in the hall. -Their presence
inflamed the secessionists and a mob
started to storm the hall. Then the
deputies fired and Ernest Boye, a by
stander, fell dead; J. H. Bruno, one
of Moyer"s men, was fatally wounded
and Charles Kremer, Los Angeles, a
witness, was hit in the stomach.
Furious at the firing of the depu
ties, the seceding miners yelled for
dynamite and three explosions tore
the frotn out of miners' hall. Moyer
and his friends had escaped by a
rear door. There is a strong prob
ability that Gov. Stewart will order
state troops here.

School teachers of Chicago will not
be able to get a raise in salary unless
the amount of their raises is slashed
from some other fund. This serious
condition in the school board affairs
Is finally admitted by the trustees.

the money for the salaries be lopped
off the equipment fund.
"As the budget now stands we shall
be $107,000 short of the amount re
quired to pay the salaries of the ele
mentary teachers," said Mrs. Young.
"I have seen the time in Chicago
when the teachers had to sell their
monthly scrip for what they could
get I do not want to see those times
So far no one has suggested that
the fight to recover several school
sites long ago be pushed.
