She surely is dancing. Movement she
has, and grace. A bright white light Is
upon her face and bosom, and It streams
with blue glare upon Jet-black hair, and

After all, it is the art crafts work as
applied to room decoration which has the
most direct meanlpg to a majority of tho
people. The frieze, the panel, the mantel,
the fireplace, even more so than the pic

we like to have It In a room at home?"
Knowing that they excel our taste and
workmanship in every detail connected
with Interior decoration, practically all of
the European Commissioners are showing
model rooms at the Fair. No phase of the
Exposition promises more of commercial
results or Is more instructive and Interest

Austrian Pavilion.
The mural decoration upon walls and

by which the palijter seeks the effects of
realism and tries to express them with a
decorative treatment, in a frieze or a cell

upon tapestry, upon a carpet design, upon
a panel, into Inlaid work, as is done In one
of the art crafts rooms, afford a good ba

Quite the newest thing of all Is a tap

Washington, June 8. Representatlv e
Cowherd, chairman of tho Democratic
Congressional Committee, sent out from
headquarters to-night a statement in rroly
to Secretary Shaw's Wilmington. Del.,
speech. In Ihls the Democratic chairman
reiterates the charge that Government
clerks are engaged In preparing Republic
an campaign material, and he says:
"The speech of the Secretary of the
Treasury made at Wilmington June 6
was of especial Interest to Democrats In
at least two particulars.
"The story "has been current around
Washington for weeks that a corps of
clerks working under the head of the De
partment of Commerce, the future chair
man of the National Republican Commit
tee, were engaged In preparing campaign
llteraturo for use by the Republican party.
In fact one New York paper published a
statement a few days ago giving some
what In detail the number of clerks en
gaged upon that work and stated that the
Republican campaign text-book was being
prepared at an expense of about $20,000
to the National Treasury.
"I was very loath to believe this report,
but the following statement from Secre
tary Shaw's fcpceclr seems to give cre
dence to the story-He Is reported to have
" 'I am confident, however, that before
the campaign proceeds very far there will
be furnished from the highest-possible au
thority In the United States well-authenti
cated data showing that the average
wages have Increased In larger( proportion
than the averase articles of ordinary
household consumption.
"The Secretary evidently recognizes the
pressing need of the .Republican party for
(lata of that kind, and while expert sta
tisticians may be able to furnish figures
to corroborate almost any theory they will
be hard pressed to find an excuse In law
or good conscience for the employment
of Government clerks to prepare cam
paign material.
"We are told repeatedly that the entire
Cabinet will take the stump for the presi
dential ticket- It the other members are
as unguarded in their disclosures of party
practices as the Secretary of the Treasury
the Democratic party will certainly wel

One Striker Is Killed and Twenty-One Are Taken
Captive Militiamen Are Fired Upon at Dunn-
ville, the New Mining Camp, Where
Fugitives Take Refuge, and at Big
Hill, Just East of Victor.
Victor, Colo. June 8.-Two pitched battles
were fought between the military and the
striking miners In the roundup following
the declaration of martial law In the Crip
ple Creek District to-day. One miner was
shot dead and twenty-one were taken cap
tive. One of the clashes took place at Dunn
vllle. the new mining camp, thirteen miles
north of Victor, and tho other at Bte Hill,
two miles east of here.
A report reached Victor this morning
that 250 armed miners, who were camped
In the hills at DunnvIIle, were preparing
to march Into Victor to-night to llDerate
the miners Imprisoned In the bullpen.
General Sherman M. Bell, who arrived
on a special train early this morning from
Denver, bearing the proclamation declar
ing martial law In Teller County, decided
to forestall the coup of the miners and
surprise them In their own camp. Ac
cordingly 200 militiamen were placed
aboard a train and hurried to DunnvIIle
this afternoon. The force arrived shortly
after 3 o'clock.
Tho train proceeded to the Immediate
vicinity of DunnvIIle without unusual In
cident. When about a quarter of a mile
distant from the DunnvIIle temporary station-
the officers could see the camp of the
miners. It Included one cabin and six
six or seven tents.
The officers left the train at the com
mand of General Bell and prepared to ad
vance upon the camp of the unionists In
regular skirmish order. As they emerged
from the cut in which the train h?d(como
to a stop they were greeted with a vol
ley of shots which came from the points
of vantage surrounding the hills.
Deputies returned the fire to the best
advantage possible, and promiscuous
shooting was engaged In for a period of
ten minutes. JFrom the character of the

mediately recognized the fact that the
strength of the miners has beenwsxeatly
overestimated and that he had sufficient
force under his command to make an Im

Accordingly, he divided the deputies and
soldiers into seven detachments and
