Sweetzer In His Imperious Boots and Spurs Lawrence, Mass., Feb. 21 Declaring "cultured Bostonians" who are op posing the shipment of more children from Lawrence have been 'deaf, dumb and blind to conditions under which i children are brought Into the world ! and drag out their miserable existence v in the textile cities of Massachusetts," :- William D. Haywood, western labor leader, and one of the leaders of the striking mill operatives, today, gave exclusively to the United Press, a : statement regarding the situation. The statement follows: (By William D. Haywood) e The fact that some of the striking textile workers of Lawrence, Mass., have seen fit to send their children away to be taken care of in New York and elsewhere has raised mighty howling among the "pluts" of cultured Backbay and of Boston. With croco dile tears flowing down their painted cheeks, the gentle ladies bemoan tne loss of these little "exiles" who. have been sent to "wicked New York." No language has been too strong to condemn the action of the strikers who have accepted the invitation of working people to care for their de pendent children until the conclusion of the industrial war at Lawrence. It was not until the first consignment of children had been sent away that the aristocrats of Boston, many of whom roll In wealth at the expense of the luckless parents of these little ones '. found their voices. Backbay's polita society and the dally papers that cat--.- er to their Uk have been deaf, dumb and blind as to the conditions under which the children are brought into the world and drag out their miserable existence In the textile towns of Mas sachusetta. Afraid of losing their lit . tie slaves. In whom they have only a - material Interest, our smug Boston exploiters and their ladles tiow sound the alarm. The "yellow-Journals, are "birsy. Rep ' resentative ' Hay, of Massachusetts Assembly, has introduced a bill tn " tending to prevent children being transported from their homes, making such actions a felony, punishable by a fine and Imprisonment. Then, in boots and spurs, comes Brigadier Col ' E. Leroy Sweetzer, a vestpocket edi f tion of the now forgotten General Sherman Bell, of Colorado fame. " Sweetzer Is the commanding officer in .-. the war zone of the Bay State. With a - mighty proclamation, a most fonnida r ble document, the said Brigadier CoL 33. Leroy Sweetzer announces to the . -wide -world that he will permit no fur ther shipment of children from Law 'wreiice and he lets himself down easy --with the significant words, "Without the consent of their parents." r ROSrCARLSON IS FINED $25 Girl Who Caused Man's Ar rest Is Assaulted by Wom an Friend of tbe Accused Mm. Rose Carlson of 1252 State St. was arrested last night and arraigned In the city court this morning, charg--' ed with an assault upon Helen Doug las of 1350 State street, the pretty young woman whose story to the po lice several weeks ago resulted in the arrest of Alexander Trechette and his binding over to the Superior court on the charge of attempted "white slav ery." The assault upon Miss Douglas, which occurred Friday evening at the corner of State street and Clinton ave- nue, came about, it is alleged, through her testimony against Trechette. Mrs. Carlson is an acquaintance of Trechette's. Through another friend, who was referred to in the city court this morning as Bertha Swenson, Trechette obtained the introduction to Miss Douglas, whom, it is alleged, he attempted to induce to leave Bridge port and lead an immoral life. Following Trechette's arrest on this charge, preferred by Miss Douglas, a great coolness sprang up between her and Mrs. Carlson. They encountered on Friday night near the corner of State street and Clinton avenue and Mrs. Carlson began to upbraid her, it is alleged, for her part in causing the arrest of Trechette. What happened is largely a matter of veracity between the two women. Mrs. Carlson in her own story admit ted taking hold of Miss Douglas" coat , and hanging on to her for "about five minutes," but denies that she struck Miss Douglas, although the girl's coat was torn in the struggle. Three boys who witnessed the af fair, gave testimony for the state. They were John AlcConnuse. Edward Daley and John Han!eys They told of the attack upon Miss Douglas by Mrs. Carlson. Judge Foster fined Mrs. Carlson $25 without costs, which was paid. The funniest part of the whole story remained untold in the city court. At the time of the alleged assault Miss Douglas was on her way home to a "divorce party." Her mother had been granted a divorce that morning and a little celebration had been arrang ed at the Douglas home in honor of the event. Senator A.

Burned Area Covers 57 City Blocks And The Estimated Loss Is Put UP To $6,000,000 When Fire Gets Beyond Control of Firemen, Experts in Explosives Are Employed to Fight the Blaze With Dynamite. (Special from United Press.) Houston. Tex., Feb. 21. After the most desperate struggle in the his tory of the 'ity, firemen, aided by thousandj of citizens and a force of explosive experts from the Southern Pacific Railway, at 10 o'clock, today, got under control a fire that for hours threatened the entire city. More than 200 buildings, including resi dences, factory buildings and church es were burned. The majority of them, however, were small structures occupied by railroad men and other workers and their families. The burned area covered 57 city blocks and at noon the fire depart ment said the loss would probably total $6,000,000. The homeless are being cared for in the unburned por tion of the city. The fire was fanned by a 35 mile an hour wind which sent burning em bers far in advance of the main body of the b'aze and to this fact was due the failure of the firemen to control the blaze. It was not until after a blooi of houses in the direct path of the flames had been dynamited that the firemen got the flames in hand. The area burned over adjoins the yards of the Southern Pacific Rail road. Cotton warehouses and loaded cars here were destroyed. It was this that brought the loss up, as most of the houses that were burned were lightly constructed and their contents not comparatively very valuable. The path of the fire ranged from five to nine blocks In width. The heaviest losers are the McFad den Compress and the Cleveland Com press, both of which were filled with cotton, the big plant of the Ed. H. Harrell Lumber Company, including mil's and yards, and St. Patrick' Catholic Church Parish, the church and school adjoining'- both were de stroyed. With the path of the fire many blocks wide, the flames spread with such rapidity that several times fit t -men trying to check their pi ogress were cut off and forced to abandon their apparatus and flee.' That there was not loss of life was due to the police who rushed ahead of the fire and warned all inmates of threatened property to flee for their lives. WHOLESALE EXODUS FROM RED LIGHT DISTRICT IS FORGED BY AUTHORITIES Bridgeport's red light district is un dergoing the greatest exodus in the history of the city. Under police escort, no less than 21 well known denizens of "The Tender loin," men and women, took the 7:32 train for New York at the railroad station last night, leaving with the understanding so 'tis said that the: will be immediately arrested if they show their faces in Bridgeport again. At known places of ilL repute the inhabitants have been warned to leave the city immediately under pain of arrest and prosecution. The group which was ushered into ROOSEVELT DECLARES FOR INITIATIVE, REFERENDUM AND RECALL OF JUDGES (Special from United Press.) Columbus, O., Feb. 21 Declaring for the people's power, so far as the Ini tiative and referendum is concerned. Colonel Theodore Roosevelt, today, took the most progressive stand of his career. He also told the constitution al convention, before which he pre sented his "charter of Democracy," that, although originally opposed to the recall, he now believed it should be within the power of the people. "The power to invoke direct action, both by initiative and by referendum," said Roosevelt, "Should be proved for tbe people in such fashion as to pre vent its being wanton or too fre quently used. In the great majority of cases, it is far better that action on executive matters should be taken by those specially delegated to per. form the task. Action by the initia tive or referendum ought not to be the normal way of legislation, but it HAWLEY'S MAN TO BE NAMED POSTMASTER E. J. Hill to Eat Crow In Danbnry Case When Crofut Is Nominated Danbury, Feb. 21. The news has reached here that President Taft will designate Fred Crofutt to be postmfis ter. This concludes one of the bitter est political contests which this city has known, and leaves victory with Few were permitted .to save any thing from the danger zone. Instead, many women and children were hur ried by the police and citizens hur riedly pressed into service to places of safety in the parka and the open spaces of the town. The wind seemed to increase ' in volume as the day wore on and car ried the blazing embers blocks ahead of the main body of the fire. Citizens, with wet blankets and anything that could be used to dislodge the fire brands, mounted to the roofs of th? frame houses everywhere and did their best to protect their property. A num-ei of factory buildings were filled with inflammable material di rectly in the. path of the fast spread ing blaze and they burned like so much tinder. Churches and school houses were also consumed. The following is a partial list of factories destroyed or damaged by the flames: Ed. H. Harrell Lumber Company, mills and yard covering three blocks. Co-Operative Manufacturing Com pany. Dew Brothers, syrup mill. Acme Mill. Houston Packing Com pany. Standard Compress. "Houston and Leggitt Lumber. Magnolia Com press. Rogers Paint Company and Hudson's Panel Factory. Fortunately, there was not much suffering. The weather was severe but mos' of those driven from their homes were able to carry their cloth ing with them. In the excitement, many families were separated. Wild reports that nothing could be saved were circulated although the better part of the business section was not endangered up to 10 o'clock. The fire spread across Into the Southern Pacific yards where a num ber of laden box cars caught fire and were (mickly consumed. Hurry orders were sent to all of the yard force of the road and en gines were rushed to the scene to drag out all of the equipment that coukl be reached. When it was seen that the fire was beyond control the firemen resorted to dynamite to clear a space ahead of the flames. They were hampered in this work by lack of knowledge of explosives and experienced men were borrowed from the railroad to take charge of the work. the railroad station last night was un doubtedly the biggest collection of its kind ever chased from the city at one time, and according to rumors, more are to follow and stragglers are leav ing on every train. Superintendent Birmingham and other police officials refuse to discuss the situation, but it is well known that the superintendent has passed around the word that "the tenderloin" must cease. Frequent assaults, "white slave" cases, disorder, raids, etc., led to a conference yesterday between officials and the "house cleaning" now in pro gress is said to be the result. should be provided in the constitution so that if the representatives fail to fully represent the people on some matter of sufficient importance to arouse popular interest, then the peo ple will have In their hands the fa cilities to make good that failure." A ticket scandal developed as the result of Colonel Roosevelt's visit. Somebody circulated hundreds of spur ious tickets, despite the fact that only 500 admissions had been authorized by the committee. The delegates announced that a sweeping investigation would be made to determine, if possible, the respon sibility. There were some humorous incidents in connection with the af. fair when dignified statesmen with tickets that could not be questioned, had to be turned awav because there was no room for them Inside of the building Roosevelt's speech in full will be found on Page 4 of The Farmer. former Sheriff "Sid" Hawley, now United States marshal.

NORSE VIKING RUNS AMUCK ON WATEITSTREET Hope of the White Race Puts Up Brilliant Fight Against Two Husky Officers Policemen Barton and O'Neil Land Their Quarry After Tough Battle Herman Glade, a German of bull strength and a giant's stature put up a brilliant fight and qualified as one of the nation's "white hopes" last night while on a "tear" along Water street. About midnight Glade was standing in the gutter on Water street between Gilbert and State streets, shouting at the top of his powerful lungs like a Joyous Titan. Officer Jack Barton told him to stop and Glade retorted, "Dot's all rlghdt". A minute later, when the officer was half a block away. Glade resumed the performance and Officer Barton walk ed up to him. "Stop that noise and go home like a good fellow," said Otflcer Barton. "You rube cop, I show you vot ve do in New York" said Gladeand as quick as a cat, he made a yank for the officer's club and snatched It from the patrolman before the latter realized that the fellow meant business. Glade then made a tremendous swipe at Barton with the latter's club. The officer ducked and closed In with a right and left to the jaw that put Glade to the sidewalk. The giant Teuton struggled to his feet and went at the officer again. Then ensued a struggle ' which ended on the stair way of a nearby house, with' Officer Barton on top, rocking Glade's cast iron Jaw with sledge hammer punches, while the giant clung to the club with tremendous obstinacy and fought like a. wildman. Then Officer O'Neil arrived. Even the combined strength of the police men, who are two of the "huskiest" on the force, couldn't wrest the club from the drlnk-crased madman until Officer O'Neil rapped Glade's fingers and fairly smashed the club from Glade's grip. With an officer on each arm. Glade was then marched to Main street where a call was sent, for the patrol wagon. But the end was not yet. Glade watched his chance and sud denly ticked the officers In the shins and tried to throw them both in the gutter. It took about five minutes more to subdue him and he was fin ally bundled . into the patrol wagon. Arrived at Police Headquarters, Glade was brought before the cap tain's desk for arraignment. There he espied a couple of chairs. "Oudt of de way," he yelled suddenly, seized the two chairs and flung them the length of the room with a crash. Again the officers had to pile on him and subdue him. Great credit is due to both of the officers concerned in the case that they did not use their clubs or billies on the man although they would have been justified in doing so by the ter rific fight which he put up. In the city court this morning. Glade, who was sober and repentant, was fined $10 and costs. He is a mechanic, employed by .a New York firm which is installing some refrigerating ma chinery in town. He has yellow hair, a yellow mustache, a neck about 22 inches in diameter, a pair of arms that would make Zbyszko Jealous and in general make up resembles nothing so much as a Norse Viking. He made a pretty decoration to the usual run in the prisoner's pen- BLIZZARD HAS FIRM GRIP ON THE SOUTHWEST (Special from United Press.)

District Attorney Whitman, today, delayed hia grand jury conspiracy inquiry. He will call Brandt as a witness as soon as he is clear of the charge now hang ing over him but did not want him to tell his story so long as he was a convict. Albany, Feb. 21 "The Brandt case is not dead unless Commissioner Hand is dead," said Governor Dix. today. "I have not seen Mr. Hand yet but un derstand he is to come here.

Following hurried conferences be tween representatives of leading man ufacturing corporations. Mayor Wilson a.n1 the Board of Relief, the orierinal i list of reductions, which had been signed, sealed and delivered by the board, was revised. Further reduc tions of $80,000 were granted, princi pally to manufactories. The total of such reduction, previously granted, aggregated $439,735. about 90 per cent, of the total relief granted by the board. But v hen the report of the board was placed before Mayor Wilson, and Its contents became known among those principally interested, hurried conferences were ca'led. Mayor Wil son participated in some of these. The reauH was the granting Of addi tional reductions on the tax lists of the companies.

But after their supplemen tary conferences, the list was brought still further down to the figure given above, $360,912. The Malleable Iron Co. as well as the other big. manufacturers interest ed, co-operated with the Board of As sessors in- arriving at their figures, through a committee representing the Manufacturers" Association. The man ufacturers and Board of Assessors sought to work in harmony. Havlna a 15 mill rate in mind, the manufacturers and assessors agreed upon Frank T. Staples, the well known banker, to be the referee. Mr. Staples and the two committees agreed on figures for the manufactor ies. These were filed and due pub licity was given them. But when the total tax lists fell considerably short of the promised $100,000,000, and the administration began to contract for considerable expenses, the manufac turers took alarm. The Brass Co., the Malleable Iron Co., American & Brit ish Co., and other concerns who had kept in closer touch with the pros pects of a high tax than the other manufacturers, entered appeals and the Board of Relief acted favorably upon a number of them. The Board of Relief's report did not stand, however. As originally pre pared it granted considerable relief to several of the larger manufactories, but as finally readjusted, it grants them still more relief. The Bridgeport Malleable Iron Co. profits greatest under the Board of Relief's second estimate. The Bridge port Brass Co. is a close second. (Continued on Page 2.)

The raids followed a dramatic cli max in the trial of Joe Lagno, the al leged white slaver who slashed the face of Dora Herman, an unfortunate habitue of the tenderloin district, a week ago last Saturday night. He confessed today that he did the crime under compulsion, under the threat of death from the gang whose tool he has been for many months.

B 21 s 2 i i p NEW INDUSTRY FOR BRIDGEPORT Concern to Build Typo Set ting Machines to Locate Here FACTORY IN CANNON STREET FOR PRESENT Fred Enos Induced the Owners to Decide Upon Bridgeport Through the never ceasing efforts Fred Enos, president of the Bridge port board of trade there will be ad-' ded to the manufacturing industries of Bridgeport a big factory in which type setting machines will be made. The concern will require a factory site from eight to ten acres and at the cm -set when operations are begun will employ between 300 and 400 high skill ed mechanics. The concern has already rented a factory building in Cannon street and about April 1st will begin building tools there with a force of fifty expert machinists Just in what section of the city the factory will be located has not yet been decided. M. F. Millikan, vice president of the concern and G. 1 Hammond, general manager were in. Bridgeport yesterday conferring with Mr. Enos. They have several sites un der consideration. The machine which the concern wilt manufacture is a development of the Bel.ows Compositor and the men wlv are to make it claim the machine will put in the shade any of the type setting machines now .'la- use. It casts a smooth hig instead of a ribbed slu;r the kind cast by most of the siug casting machines now in use. The slug is homogenous with a greater depth of character and will stand up better under the steam table pressure applied in making matrices for syndi cate work. The letters on its slug are higher and clearer. The makers claim for their machine a greater speed than any other machine on the market. A number of the machines have been on a year's test in some of the largest newspaper offices in New -York city. That it occupies less floor space. It has fewer parts, weighs about two thirds - as much as other machines of like nature and is of pleasing design. There are among other things which its promotors claim make tor its su periority over other type setting ma chines. The makers :"! a the macbir..' is faster than, any operator that has been found to run it. The machine baa not been put out commercially as yet but it has been tested out and is now ready for manufacture. .Exper iments have been carried on at Woon eocket, R. I. Bridgeport's gain in securing this in dustry is Newark's loss for business men of that city were negotiating with the makers to locate their factory there. The organ ia tion of the con cern which is to make the machine has not yet been completely perfected hence as1 yet it has no name. UNCLASSIFIED FOR SALE.
