McCloud, June 4. There is no indi cation tonight that the lumber strikers will return to work or the company make any concessions. Following a conference between President Queal of the lumber company. Superintendent Spencer and Frank Levato one of the leaders of the strikers, the Italians held a mass meeting: this afternoon and re solved to recede from their demand for 25 cents increase per day." The orig inal demand was for fifty cents increase but Levato agreed to cut this in half. Presidert Queal informed the delega tion from the strikers that he would not allow them any increase and re quested that those who do not desire to return to work to leave McCloud at once. Many of the strikers own the cabins in which thej live and President Queal asked that they appoint a committee to fix a valuation on these. If the price named is within reason, the company will take over the houses. Convinced apparently that the strug gle is hopeless, a number of the strik ers asked for their time todav and be gan settling their accounts preparatory to leaving the camp. They are said to be depositors at the company bank to the extent of $200,000. President Queal declared today that rather than yield to the strikers the company would close its plant down for the rest of the season if it was found to be impossible to secure hands to replace those who went out. Levato was assured before attending the conference today that he would not be arrested on the warrant issued for him yesterday as a ringleader of the movement. He stated that he was not in' command of the strikers but merely appeared as their spokesman. A SOLICITIOUS ITALIAN Wants the Person of People Pro tectee. Sacramento, June 4.

If you have any Influence wfth the subjects of your country who are engaged in rioting and disturbing the peace in McCloud, I wish you would exercise it and request them to desist. By doing so all trou ble will be averted. From information received by me I do not apprehend that the persons of your subjects are in danger.

MANUFACTURE OF EVIDENCE Another Charge Made Against President Calhoun A DETECTIVE'S NARRATIVE The Defense in Reply Inti mated That the Story Had Already Been Offered to the United Railroads' Pres For a Consideration. San Francisco, June 4. Charging that Calhoun was a party to a plot to manufacture evidence favorable to the officials of the United Railroads, Assistant District Attorney Heney in troduced into the trial of the United Railroads' president, a new issue. Saniuel F. Scott, during a period of three years, successively employ ed by the United Railroads, the Southern Pacific and W. J. Burns, agent of the. prosecution, in positions of confidence was the witness who made the accusation. His testimony, although received by the defense with ridicule and contempt opened up one of the bitterest controversies in the long trial. Scott, who admitted that he be came the agent of the prosecution since ttie trial commenced, said he had been approached by Joseph H. Handlon, a claim agent of the United Railroads in 1907 and had been re quested to repeat before Calhoun a story manufactured by Handlon. Scott said that Handlon asked him to tell Calhoun that he (Scott) had been In the employ tjf Burns and that he had 'accompanied Spreckels and Heney in an automobile ride to a house, the location of which was not defined, and that Spreckels had watched through a transom the con duct of two men who entered an ad joining room. The witness said he had been requested to tell Calhoun that Spreckels subsequently joined the two men in the adjoining room and departed in their company. Stanley Moore, attorney for the de fendant, who conducted the cross ex amination of Scott admitted that the story was no surprise to the defense, but he Insinuated by his questions that Scott originated the narrative and tried in vain to sell it to the defense, after which he entered the employ of the prosecutlort.

The effects of the late crisis are still to be seen in the large commercial de faults although this seems a passing condition as the aggregate of those tn many ways was the smallest of any month this year. "In the hides market the advance has creased for the present, and trade is now quiet." BRADSTREETS -MORE CON- SERVATIVE. New York. June 4. Bradstrect's to morrow will say: "The business situation presents many favorable features, but there is still an underlying feeling of conserva tism, and while less is heard of the Influence of tariff changes on the fi ture of trade there is still apparent a disposition to await the outcome of the present legislative action and a clear er view as to the possible crop yield Ings. "Wool is quieter and reports from manufacturing branches of that trade and of silks and cotton are of consid erable activity. Leather prices are strong, reflecting the strength in hides, but shoes, while being ordered freely, are not selling so heavily for the fail as was expected." o BOTH SIDES SATISFIED WITH THE MO STRIKE Men Going Out Rapidly, Their Places Being Immediately Refilled.

THE SENATE SWELTERING The Tariff Discussion Going Bitterly On ... i LA FOLLETTE TO PENROSE The Wisconsin Senator Thinks the Pennsylvanian Had Better AccountFor the Way He Spends His Own Time When Not on Duty. Washington, June 4. Through the forenoon, afternoon and evening ses sions, the senate today labored on the cotton schedule. Mr. LuFollette com pleted his long speech, attacking the changes in the Dingley rates recom mended by the senate finance com mittee, and he replied to Senator Pen rose's charge last night that he was shamming sickness as an excuse for his absence from the night session. He said he was not ill, but very tiredl and was resting to be in better shape to continue his speecbtoday. He de clared that Mr. Penrose might perform a greater service for the country and his state if he would account for his own time when not in the senate. At the night session Mr. Aldrich re plied to Mr. LaFollette's assaults upon the work of the finance committee and made a general defense of the amend ments, which he asserted were neces sary. Throughout the day the tem perature in the senate chamber was sweltering. It is said another effort will be made to obtain a vote on the cotton schedule tomorrow. Mr. Aid- rich told the senators that he proposed to make a statement explaining the committee's amendments and "to cor rect any misapprehension instilled In their minds by a torrent of misinfor mation and misrepresentation." Mr. Aldrich reviewed the history of the cotton schedule, saying that In no tariff act have there leen fixed rates' so low as in the schedule pertaining to cotton cloth and cotton"manufacturers generally. He said cloths valued at from 7 to 20 cents now pay specific rates, and those have not been chang ed by the senate bill. Reviewing the various court decisions in reference to the schedule, Mr. Aldrich declared that the government paid nut as much as $5,000,000 as refunds of duties on ac count, the differences resulting fronU the ambiguity of the Dingley law. He said a recent decision of the supreme court would require the government to make a refund of $500,000. o UNITEU COPPER BOOKS MUST COME ANYHOW n Spite of the Election of a New Directory.

Leprosy, tu berculosis and the pollutions of streams formed the princii-al themes today in the conference of state and provincial boards of health of North America. With regard to leprosy. Dr. W. C. Woodward of the District of Colum bia, chairman of the committee on a national leprosarium reported that no. progress had been made toward the establishment of such an insti tution. The absurdity of the federal government, arresting lepers for vio lating interstate quarantine laws and regulations only to return ttum to their home states, without having any practicable method of compelling them to remain there, and tho im possibility of the federal government restraining lepers without hav.ng a suitable place in which to care for them, all pointed he said to the ab solute -necessity of a natioral lepro sarium. Taking up tuberculosis D. John P. Foster said it was a question for municipalities rather than for the states. He advocated education for the public with regard to the milk supply. Regarding the pollution of streams the committee appointed to consider the subject, recommended thit us the federal government had no control over the matter many of r.he most difficult ,problems might be settled by the states.

Groth and Shay started to run toward the rear of the salooh, but the fonner fell dead with two bullets through the body. A fourth struck Shay, who. al though badly wounded, turned and go ing past Fox, ran out of the front door. Fox followed the wounded man to the sidewalk, where he fired an other bullet into him.

As Fox was brought in the dying man was raised up from the operating table and exclaiming. "That's the man who shot me," fell back dead.
