position that decision of the case of,
the Socialist leader and similar of

While officials would not disclose

Daugherty's recommendations in
the case of Debs are understood to be

The document, officials said, was in

Brig. Gen. H. H. Bandholtz, who

He addressed a party of miners at
Racine, who were waiting for a train

investigation along the line, returned

reports from Williamson, Mingo coun

Several Persons Injured
Blast Occurs Shortly
After Midnight "
Labor Dispute is Held Re
sponsible by Officials ;
Explosion Severe
CHICAGO, Aug. 28. A bomb ex
plosion in the Columbia Theatre short
ly after midnight shook the entire
business district. The theatre was
empty at the time, not yet having
been re-opened for the season. Sev
eral persons were reported, however,
I to have been injured by flying glass.
According to the police, the explosion
was due to labor troubles.
The explosion took place at 12:10
a. m. . The bomb had been placed at
the entrance to the stage door in an
alley. The force of the blast shat
tered the heavy steel door and broks
hundreds of surrounding windows.
The interior of the theatre itself was
not damaged.
The Columbia Theatre is a bur
lesque house on what is known as the
Columbia "wheel." Recently it has
been covered with "unfair" notices
as a result, it was said, of trouble
with; the musicians union. The head
quarters of the Columbia "wheel" is
in New York, and it operates a chain
of theatres in a score of cities, most
ly in the east.
The theatre is located in the heart
of the business district, and the
sound of the blast attracted, thou
sands to the scene. A special detail
of police was called to clear the
streets and aided firemen in keeping
back the crowd.
v After a hurried investigation, it
was announced that the bomb, appar
ently a steel cylinder, had contained
black powder. Parts of the casing
were found imbedded deeply in the
walls of surrounding buildings. The
damage to the theatre was declared
slight, the interior being untouched.
As a result of the explosion, a guard
of police was placed about the Colum
bia and several other theatres which
have also been involved in labor uis-
A similar explosion occurred at
about the same time at the Star and

Steamship Firm
Is Charged With
Fleecing Aliens
Government Regains Poses
sion of Nine Vessels
For Ship Board
NEW YORK. Aug. 27. Charges
that the United States Mail Steam
ship company had diverted through
prior uses $1,200,000 obtained from
immigrants, were niade today by
Chairman Lasker of the shipping
board after the government had .re
gained possession of nine ships origl
nally chartered by the company.
Lasker announced that,, with . the
vessels restored to the board by
court order, they would be operated
by a special committee until the
board decided whether to sell or char
ter them To another company.
He declared that the $1,2,000 rep
resented advance money collected
from immigrants for passage, hotel
expenses, railroad fares and immigra
tion head taxes, and that decision
temporarily to operate the vessels as
a patriotic service was reached be
cause "the government feels that it
could not permit fraud and hardships
to be worked on thousands of Imnil
grants." Diversion of the funds, he
L asserted, was an "unconscionable
The fight for possession of the
nine vessels has been in progress
since they were seized by the board
last month on the ground of non-pay
ment of rental. . -
The committee which will operate
the vessels comprises W. Averill Har
riman, Kermit Roosevelt, and A. V.
Moors, who will serve without com
pensation. Lasker, in his statement,
declared that the board had started
its action "to maintain the American
flag flying on the seas and to pro
tect innocent immigrants who we dis
covered were being fleeced."
"No so-called 'alien shipping' inter
ests will be permitted to drive the
American flag from -the seas not so
long as American citizens are willing
and able to operated-American ships

Extreme Supporters of Erin's
' Claims Believe Time For
Peace Has Arrived
British Unable to Understand
Attitude "President" is
Taking in Discussion
LONDON. Aug. 27. (By the Asso
ciated Press) The Irish negotia
( tions now have reached the critical
I etage, in the British view, as mirror
I ed by the great majority of newspa-
' Dfr including thnan nrpvimisl v anrv-
, r f j i
porters of home rule and those ad
vanced liberal newspapers such as
the Daily News, and the Manchester
Guardian, which, in the past, have
gone almost as far as the Sinn Fein.
They think the Sinn Fein declara
tions of general" principles have gone
far enough and that the time has
come for dropping declarations of
principles and getting down to the
business of arranging the terms, if
the Sinn Fein proposes to negotiate
the proposals which the government
ottered as set forth in detail in Prime
Minister Lloyd George's first letter.
The general belief expressed is that
Eamonn de Valera, the Irish republi
can leader, having said all that is ne
cessary to assure Irishmen of the
Sinn ' Fein's theoretical standpoint,
will do this.
The British find it difficult to anal
yze de Valera's position from what
ever light his latest notes throw upon
it. There is the belief, or at least
the hope, that the policy ot the Irish
republican cabinet will be, while con
stantly affirming Ireland's claim to
independence, accept terms for do
mioion status under the new watch
word, "consent of the governed" in
other words, that while clinging to
the assertion of the inherent right to
independence, the cabinet will "con
sent" to accept dominion status, bar
gaining to the last ditch for the near
est possible approach to ( independ
ence. May Call Referendum
It is hoped here that the final solu
tion may rest upon a referendum of
the Irish people. The New States
man, which is the most solid organ
of the labor movement and a consist
ent and well informed friend of Ire
land, asserts that four-fifths of the
Irish people would vote for accept
ance of the British terms. Every ob
server in Ireland, it says, agrees that
the people are tired to death of guer
illa fighting and are finding rare en
joyment of the freedom to live their
normal lives which the truce has giv
en them. , If the Irish republican cab
inet eventually refuses the British
terms, a referendum of the - British
people probably will follow in the
form of the British government re
sorting to a general election to ive
the country a chance to reject or con
firm the government's policy.'
Judging from the newspapers again
there is a distinct hardening of Brit
ish sentiment in the direction of co
ercing 'the Irish with more force than
hitherto has been used. British sen
timent, they declare, would approve
this, based on the feeling that the gov
ernment has offered very generous
concessions and that the secession of
Ireland could not possibly be permit
ted. Ulster apparently is giving no help
to a compromise ud de Valera. it is
believed here, must drop any hoi
of making an arrangement with the
northern province, whereby they will
present a united front with southern
Ireland to Great Britain.
