Plans by Which Strikes May Be Avoided. Government Ownership or Ar bitration Recommended. A Rock Island Official Admits That the Former Plan Would Be Effectual. By the Associated Press. Chicago, Aug. 16. The first witness today before lhe government strike commission was Lovejoy, a Rock Island employee, who testified that the men went out at Lasalle because he waB un justly discharged. Secretary Keliher of the A.. R. U., gave detailed accounts of the events leading up to the strike and boycott. He was closely ques tioned. Secretary Keliher said that he be- lieved that government ownership would solve the problem. Next to that he said the law should be such that in case of trouble .with its employees a railroad should be compelled to submit the matter to arbitration. If the rail roads will not accept the terms upon whinh the arbitrators decide the com pany should be compelled to go-ont of business and if the employees are not suited by the decision let them leave the employ of the company. B. B. Ray, of the Rock Island, agreed wita Jvenner tnat government owner ship of railroads would prevent strikes. Ray favored a law, he said, compelling railroaas to give discharged employees a document setting iorth the reasons for their discharge. Chairmrn Heathcote, of the Pullman strike committee, was on the witness stand during the afternoon session. He showed the table of the Pullman, com pany's wages and claimed that the wages had been cut sixty per cent in the last two years. Mr. Heathcote also exhibited what he claims was a black list issued by Pullman officials request ing other companies to refuse to employ men whose names appeared thereon. There is no doubt that George M. Pullman, Vice-President Wickes, Gen eral Manager Egan, St. John and other, corporation officers will be called up; whether they will testify or not is' an other matter. and committed to the asylum. Little was known of him except that his home is at Albany, N. "Y., and that he came here from Colorado a short time ago. He is a laborer. He proved to be the most trouble some prisoner m the county jail, lie was locked up on Wednesday evening. Early in the night be disclosed a strong predilection for vocal music and began to supply it himself. He had only two songs, the "Swante River" and "Kittie Clyde.!' It. didn't take long for Mr. Qainn's singing to be regarded as a nuisance and he was put into a ceil in a vain hope that he would subside. He only sang the louder. The prisoners in self defense brought water in all availa ble utensils and drenched him through the grated door. The improvised bucket brigade could make no stand against the flames of harmony and the prison ers applied the jail authorities for protection. Deputy Sheriff Widmer remonstrated with the singer. "I am singing for the amusement of those fellows, replied Mr. Quinn, pointing to the assembled prisoners who stood around cursing the music. "Yes, but you are disturbing the boarders in the third and fourth stories and they are complaining about you ' said Mr. Wiamer, "and a night policeman," he continued, "has just been in and threatens to arrest the sheriff for keeping a disorderly house." "Is that so" said Ouinn. "Well then I'll let up." He lay down as if to go to to sleep, and the deputy returned to the office. He was hardly seated when he heard : "Way down on the Swanee river, far, far away." This was kept up until 2 o'clock. Then a blanket was fastened over the door of his cell by way of an experiment. It worked nicely. Quinn couldn't Bing in the dark, and a quiet as of the grave pre vailed within the jail. EZETA'S ARREST Delayed By the Favor of Former Creatures.

The mys tery surrounding the disappearance of Lang C. Winston, a well-known citizen oi this city, has atlaBt been cleared up.

Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder World's Fair Highest Award. By the Associated Press. San Francisco, Aug. 16. It became known today that the warrants for the arrest of Ezeta and three other refugees from San Salvador have been here since Tuesday but owing to dissensions among local representatives of the gov ernment of San Salvador, the docu ments have not been served. The gun boat .Bennington continues to cruise bevond the three-mile limit. The trouble here is due to the fact that the consulship is held by a man who owes his appointment to ex-Presi dent Ezeta and who is still loyal to the deposed president though the new gov ernment has recognized him as its offi cial. Carlos F. Yrigoyen is the local consul. More than three weeks ago be eft San Francisco suddenly and went to New York and it is Baid now that his purpose was meet ex-President Ezeta when he should arrive there. Soon afterward vice-Consul Kelly de parted for Mexico leaving the affairs of ban balvador to be loosed after by Mariono Koma, a citizen who is an ex- consul of San Salvador. Roma like Consul Yrigoyen and vice-Consul Kelly, is friendly to Ezeta and will do nothing to jeopardize his cause. As a result the warrants of arrest are lying in Consul lngoyen's office and there is no one who will officially place them in the hands of the United states marshal Consul Yrigoyen is speeding back San Francisco but those in a position to know declare that he can be depended upon to do nothing which will injure his friend ,zeta. it is probable, bow- ever that Yrigoyen will be deposed from the consulate. It is said his suc cessor is now en route bv steamer from San Salvador. A Broken Record. Buffalo, Aug. 16. W. L. Stimmel and Fred C.

Although the number of worshippers present last evening was not as great as had been ex pected, the services, though short, were characterized by all that deep fervor and earnestness for which the metho- dists are noted. There was a ring of sincerity about each address, and in each prayer was breathed the confident hope that the meetings will be salutary The music is intended this year to be more of a feature than ever, and the hymns last eyening were led by sev eral clear, sonorous voices which easily enthused the balance of the congrega tion.

Grifiin will ever be punished for the offenses for which he is held to the grand jury. He was nearly made sale yesterday. On a complaint by J. C. Hurlev charg ing him with insanity, he was brought before Probate Judge Jordan and was examined by Drs. Hughes and Ma- honey. A great deal of testimony was pre sented by his acquaintances and former associates, which showed that his ac tions for a long time have been queer. His family history was also proved to be bad. His father, now living in Massachusetts, has been confined in an asylum at different times, and a sister is now an inmate of a Massachusetts asylum. The court entertained no doubt tha' Griffin is mentally unbalanced. He did not, however, regard the case as suffi ciently serious to commit him, and he therefore dismissed the complaint.
