EL PASO, Oct. 22. The discus

the presentation of the proposition,
the conference was given over to a
discussion by the managers of their
views. It has adjourned until to

Mr. Pentland stated that he and

which led to it. Incidentally he said
they would investigate the attitude
of outsiders to the strike.
"We will not go into the strike
zone for the present." he said, "but

of the conference.''
E. E. Ellinwood. attorney for the
managers, said the conferences will
probably end on Saturday when the
managers would make answer to the
proposals of the miners.

SAN FRANCISCO. Oct. 22. Mrs.
Mary Pamias, who confessed to the
police on Wednesday that she killed
Michael Weinstein, a crippled peddler,
in her apartment on Tuesday night,
made a second confession in which

her husband knew nothing of the

the following day.
The husband and his wife slept
that night in the bedroom where the

Music. With Meals is Latest
Innovation at the Relief
Kitchen in Clifton and is
.Likely to Be Adopted at
Met calf and Moreno i
By Ernest Douglas
(Special Representative of The Re
publican.) CLIFTON. Ariz., Oct. 22. Music
with meals is the latest innovation at
the relief kitchen maintained by the
strikers in Clifton. During the even
ing meal today an orchestra com
posed of striking Mexican miners held
forth at the Union restaurant. Sin
gle men now being boarded there en
joyed steak and potatoes to the
strains of "Aloha" and "La Paloma."
To the syncopated rhythm of a
Charlie Chaplin walk the married
men jauntily bore sacks of flour and
parcels of beans and beef from the
relief depot opposite. The orchestra
promised to play frequently at meal
time. The plan may be adopted at
Metcalf and Morenci as many of the
strikers are excellent musicians.
Word has gone forth from the ex
ecutive committee that every striker
not a member of some committee
must do his share of picket duty.
Heretofore anyone who wished to do
so could evade the monotony of
picketing. Most of the work was
done by Mexicans. Orders were given
that with each party of pickets there
must be two or three Americans.
B. F. Spriggs, chief clerk to Man
ager Bennie of the Shannon Copper
Company toduy confirmed the rumor
that all office men had been removed
from the Shannon payroll. No em
ploye is now drawing pay from the
Shannon except two or three men in
the electric light plant at Metcalf.
The windows and doors of the com
pany buildings have been boarded. A
number of the office force is being
maintained at the Duncan refugee
colony but none is receiving pay. The
strikers regard this as another sign
that the companies never expected
the EI I'aso conference to have any
result. They expect the Arizona and
Detroit companies to take similar ac
tion. Joseph 11. Myers today notified the
executive committee he would arrive
in Clifton next week, not to make a
federal investigation but as a repre
sentative of the conciliation bureau
of tho department of labor. The
question of ordering an investigation
has been passed up to Washington.

The woman's new story reconciled
several conflicting statements, the
facts of which puzzled the police.
They doubted the ability of the slen
der woman to chop to pieces the body
in the time she said. In her second
statement, Mrs. Pamias said after the
murder she hid the body in the box
couch in her bedroom and kept the
knowledge of her crime from her
husband. On Tuesday, she said, she
cut up the body, wrapped the pieces
in a newspaper, and placed them
back in the couch.
In the meantime she- rented another
apartment two blocks away where
she intended to send a newly pur
chased trunk with the body in it. On
Tuesday night she informed her hus
band and tried to induce him to
flight. She said her husband spent
the night convincing her it would be
better to surrender to the police.

two suposed Mexican bandits, whilj
crossing the Rio Grande at San
Pedro ranch, twelve miles up the
river. Both were armed. The bodies
were r.ot recovered. Mexican deputy
sheriffs arrested two bandit sus

wreck, robbery and murder. They
were not armed and were unable
to account for themselves. They

sheriff claims to have evidence that

Mayor Albert Brown has called a
meeting tomorrow of representa
tives of the towns in this section
for the purpose of discussing the
border situation and alleviating tho
terrors. He made it plain that no
reprisals were contemplated by the
proponents at the meeting and that
the members will dispassionately
discuss conditions. Congressman
Garner is enroute to Washington to
present the views of the community
to the government that something
must be done to stop the raids or

to present his chief with the communi
cations of recognition from the United
States and the Latin-American am
bassadors. He had a talk with Secre
tary Lansing and members of the
Latin-American diplomatic corps on
Mexican affairs and makes a full report
of the negotiations with Carranza. It
is understood that he will discuss the
border situation with Carranza. In
addition o strengthening thev border
forces, the government took steps to
institute a vigorous inquiry into the
origin and cause of the raids.
The president conferred with Attor
ney General Gregory, who is preparing
to send a squad of agents of the de
partment of justice to the scene. Sec
retary Garrison has ordered the twenty-eighth
infantry from Galveston to
Harlington and another regiment is
being held in readiness for immediate
service. Officials are convinced that
the Carranza authorities are not con
nected with the disturbances, and are
anxious to stop them. It is believed
that influences on the American side
had much to do with the conspiracy
and cause of the troubfe.
Regarding the case of General Huer
ta. who is now held prisoner at Fort
Bliss, the Attorney General said he ex
pected evidence would be laid before
the grand jury within the next few
weeks in an effort to obtain an indict
ment on the charge of attempting to
violate the neutrality laws of the Unit
ed States. No request for the extradi
tion of Huerta has been received from
the Mexican government, he said.

Making their way to Phoenix In
the early morning hours and thread
ing the narrow drive along the bank
of the Grand canal, three-fuarters
of a mile off the Tempe road at 4
o'clock yesterday morning, a party
of St. Louis tourists, consisting of
.Tared P. Spalding, a large stock
holder of the Liggett & Myers To
bacco Company, of Duke's Mixture
fame, Mrs. Spalding, and Harry Jor
dan, chauffeur, narrowly missed
death when their car plunged from
the road and landed bottom side up
in the canal. All are more or less
seriously injured and are being
cared for at a private hospital on
East McKinley street.
It was still dark when the ma
chine bearing the party, was turned
along the canal road. The lights of
the machine were in good working
order, but an especially narrow place
in the road confused Jordan who
was driving and tht car plunged into
the water. It landed sufficiently to
the further side to throw Mrs. Spal
ding on the opposite bank. She was
severely injured, particularly about
the race and head. Her husband
sustained a fracture of the left arm,
and Jordan, being thrown against
the steering wheel, was so badly in
jured about the chest that hem
orrhages immediately ensued and
continued all of yesterday.
Another car. in which were George
Lapalm. of San Diego, and Fred
Friedmann, a trained nurse, from
Ocean Pe.rk, was following a short
distance behind. The occupants
witnessed the plunge of the Spalding
car and were soon on hand engaged
in rescuing the three. Friedmann

Leon Bone, special agent for the
department of justice, stationed
at Salt Luke, arrived to continue
his investigation of the alleged
creamery trust said to be in con

Wyoming, Nevada, Washington,
Oregon, Arizona and parts of Cal

panies are said to dominate the
dairy market and fix the prices
of milk, cream and butter. The
investigator was reticent concern

derstood, has been presented to
the federal grand jury.
The British Foreign Office
Makes Public Report of
British Chaplain Who Vis
ited Woman Before Her
Execution in Germany
LONDON, Oct. 22. The British for
eign office has made public the report
of Rev. Gahan, the British chaplain at
Brussels, who visited Edith Cavell be
fore her execution. Also a letter from
Brand Whitlock, the American minister
to Belgium, to Ambassador Page, which
says he had requested that the body of
Miss Cave!' be delivered to the school
of nurses, of which she was the di
rectress. His request was referred to
the ministry of war in Berlin. Ga
han's report said that he found Miss
Cavell calm and resigned. She was not
in fear nor was she shrinking. She said
she had seen death so often that it was
not strange nor fearful to her.
Gahan's report said: "Monday even
ing on the eleventh of October, I was
admitted on a special passport from
the German authorities to the prison at.
St. Gilles where Miss Cavell was con
fined for ten weeks. Finally the sen
tence was given early in the afternoon.
To my astonishment and relief, I found
my friend perfectly calm and resigned.
This did not lessen the tenderness nor
intensity of feeling during the last in
terview of an hour. She said she
wished all her friends to know how
willingly she gave her life for her coun
try. She said T have no fear or shrink
ing. I have seen death so often it is
not strange nor fearful to me'. Further

injured persons as comfortable as
possible. Then the three were
placed in Lapalm's car and rushed
to the residence of Dr. Redewill. who
took them to the McKinley street
That all were not killed in the
wreck of the car or drowned by be
ing pinned down under the car is
considered remarkable. The road
along the canal is one that has to
be taken very cautiously even in
the daytime, and just why the
party attempted to negotiate it in
the dark is not known.
Dr. Redewill stated last evening it
will be some time before any of
the three will be able to leave the
hospital. Mrs. Spalding and Jordan
are the most seriously injured.
One Bullet Reaches Two
Supposed Motorcycle Thieves
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 22. Chester
Nolen. aged seventeen, was killed
and Frank Ward, aged nineteen, was
probably fatally wounded by a bullet
fired either by Sergeant Cahill or
Patrolman Shammo. The bullet
pierced Nolen's body, and struck
Ward in the back, penetrating his
lungs and stomach.
The boys were speeding away on a
motorcycle, which the police declared
had been stolen.
They had not tried to shoot the
boys. Ward, in a. dying statement,
claimed he purchased the motorcycle.

NEW YORK, Oct. 22. The offii. -ial

. NEW YORK, Oct. 22. Although the
football season has just crossed the
midway mark, the leading eastern
elevens tomorrow face one of the most
dangerous stages of play. By an un
usual coincidence, none of the big
trams enter the contests certain of ul
timate victory. Harvard, Princeton,
Yale, Cornell, Dartmouth, Pennsylva
nia, and the Army all are called upon
to meet opponents capable of giving
buttle far beyond the practice standard.
Large assemblages of gridiron cn
thutiasts are expected to witness tho
Harvard-Cornell game at Cambridge:
the Princeton-Dartmouth game at
Princeton; the Pennsylvania-Pittsburg
game at Philadelphia; the Georgetown
Army game at West Point; and the
Yale-Washington and Jefferson game
at New Haven.
Cornell goes to Harvard for the elev
enth game between them since the:
eighteen nineties when the .series was
inaugurated. The Itahaca team has an
excellent chance to break a long siring
of deleats that have been its portion
since the initial contest with the Crim
