LATE OFFICER IS IN JAIL Rearrested by Sheriff and Held for Murder-Will Hold Inquest Tonight. From Monday's Daily Gazette. John P. McBride is dead and L. M. Hayden,- who inflicted the wound that resulted in the young man's death, is confined in the county jail awaiting the action of the district court. McBride died yesterday morning at about 2:20 o'clock, at 'St. Vincent's hospital. About a half hour before his demise McBride appeared to be getting along nicely. To the sister who was nurs ing him he said he was feeling very well; that he had no .pain and he seemed to be in exceptionally good spirits. A few minutes afterward, at about 2 o'clock, he began to vomit. The sister hastened to his side and found that his pulse was very low and that he had lost consciousness. She hurriedly gave him a hypoder mis injection of nitrogylcerine to stimulate the heart action, but the drug failed of its accustomed resultz and was apparently without effect. A telephone message was sent to Dr. Lindsey and he hurried to the hos pital and seconded the efforts of the sister to rally the prtient. But it proved of no avail. The spark of lite was fast going out and shortly after ward McBride died, without ha.ving regained his senses or uttering a word. The patents of the young man wRtr notified and also the coroner. No in formation of the death cf McBride seems to have been given to the sher= iff and it was not until after breakfast, when he came down town, that Mr. Hubbard learned of it. He immedi ately ordered Deputy Robbins to ar rest Hayden. Mr. Robbins found Hayden at home and arrested him and took him to jail, where he enter ed a charge of murder against the prisoner. The body of McBride was removed yesterday morning to the Setzler un dertaking rooms and there prepared for burial. This morning Coroner Chappl9 sum moned a jury composed of J. J. Mc Cormick, J. R. Yates, F. B. Connelly, SH. G. Williams, Paik Holland and Jean Decker. The jurors viewed the body and after its identification by the father of the dead man and Dr. Lindsey an adjournment was taken until this evening at 7:30 o'clock. when the inquest will be held at the court house. In the meantime an autopsy will be performed, as there have been several rumors afloat which induced the coroner and jury to believe that such a c(urse would be advisable in view cf the possible future complications likely to arise. James 1McBride. the 1 ther of the dead man, caril d h'.nself bravely during the Ilying oideal of identify ing the dead body of his son and vol unteered consider able information concerning the young man's earlier life. He said that when about 14 years of age his cn had had typhoid fever and ever since his right leg had' been ccnsiderably larger than the other, particular!v about the' calf. It was in this leg that he was shoi. and the statement of Mr. McBride bore out the opinion of Dr. Lindsey, who previously had remarked that be cause of the size of the leg the opera tion had been made more difficult, and who attributed its enlargement to the existence at sometime of ty phoid. John Patrick McBride was 24 years old April 13, last, and was born at Park City, Utah, from which place the family removed to Martinsdale. Meagher county. About three weeks ago they came to this city, having sold their ranch and other property they had at Martinsdale. He was the eldest of four children, two brothers and a sister, all of whom survive him and are with his late father and mother. The funeral will take place tomor row morning at 10 o'clock from the Catholic church. Ajthough Hayden is held on the cparge or murder, no complaint alleg ing this offense has as yet been en tered against him and the old one, for assault in the first degree, on which, he was originally arrested, still holds." Before a new complaint can be filed against the prisoner it will be necessary to dismiss the first, and he must be again arraigned. County Attorney Hathhorn stated this afternoon that he would file a second complaint, probably this even ing, and in it he woull ch'-: ' the prisoner with murder in t:' .::t de gree. WATKINS MUST STAND TRIAL Judge Loud Opposes Departure from Usual Proceedings. From Monday's Daily Gazette. E. B. Goodall, uncle of P. D. Wat kins of Billings, was in the city yes terday conferring with Judge Loud, says last Saturday's Yellowstone t Journal. Watkins is the man who a was arrested at Billings for passing forged checks, and whose case will soon come up for trial. He pursued the business of passing these clhcks in Toronto, Kalispell and other towns s and was caught at Billings. An ef fort was made by his friends to have e County Attorney Hathhorn of Billings g dismiss the case, but he alleged, 'properly, that he had no option in y the matter, which lay with the dis e trict judge. Accordingly Mr. Goodall came to Miles City last night to in terview Judge 'Loud to see if any thing could be done toward having dtle case dismissed. pThe judge said he would have to ; sde the prisoner and have a talk with hilnn. He sees no reason at present 0 why any special favors should be e shawn or for departing from the us ual proceedure. He will insict on the pricner being tried, urless very ° weighty reazcns fcr the cppe-ite pro a 'ceeding are adduced. THREE HAVE F' 'D. Alleged Illegal Voters Foi eit Their Bonds-One Acquitted.

COAL ROADS ARE SCARED Fear Evidence to Be Produced Will Show Existence of an Un lawful Combination. Scranton, Pa., Nov. 23.-The anthra cite coal strike commission adjourn ed yesterday to meet on December 3, and it is the hope and expectation of all parties to the controversy that when the arbitrators again meet an agreement on all points in dispute will be ready for submission to and approval by the commissioners. Those who aie conducting the nego tiations on both sides express the opinion that an amicable adjustment will be reached, and predict that the commissioners will make only one more trip to this city. Before adjourning a sub-, or "con ciliatoFy," committee was appointed in order that the wishes of the com mission may be officially made known with regard to any matter that may arise in the interval. The commis sioners want it understood that they have the last say in the ad:ustment of the differences. And tbýt whatever is agreed uian m' 1 have their full approvel beff.e the agreement can be put in operation. The sub-com mittee, which is made up of Com missiorcis ,Watkinc, Parker and Clark this afternpon called into conference as many of the attorneys representing all parties before the commission as could be gathered on short notice, and stated to them the ?ttltude of the commission. The individual operators, betWeen 30 and 40 of whom atee re)res~, ed before the commission, are disposed to object to the Ray matters have been prcgiessing. Mr. Burns, one of their attorneys, bl ugnt the matter before the commission t1day and said the individual operators wanted to be consulted in whatever agr ements, regarding the proceedings before the commission, may be m. dle. In all thr t has so far taken place, he said that the opetaet s l'd not t:en consulted, although they had n· .:',"cion to a 10 days' adjournm ao. Chairman Gray, for the commission, had a long colloquy with Mr. Burns, in which Judge Grey gave the inde pendent operators to understand that the commissicuers will nct abrogate their duty, and that whatever as.ee ments tending toward a settlement of the questions a; ssue have been ef fected. ~ere made by the parties to the agic .n:.&s erd ,h't th~ comers sion b d token co p:' in them.

WE want to show in open hearing whc was responsible for the reign of ter ror that has been in existence in this region during the last six months.' Morgan Was Shown. Wishington, Nov. 23.-The read ing public may want to know wh3 the dispatches yesterday announcec the probability that the coal st ikE situation would be cleared up by the miners and operators without furthei hearings before the arbitration comrn mission. The explanation is easy, according to word received here today. The operators' case began to look bad and fear was felt of the effect of disclos ures which tho miners are about to make before the commission regard ing the existence of a combination of coal carrying roads, amounting to a complete monopoly, in restraint of trade and in violation of the Sherman law. The operators hired 27 lawyers, some of th'm the ablest men in that profession in the country, with form" er Attorney General Wayne Mac Veagh at their head. They believed they would be able to route the min c,, h.rste, foct and dragoons, as soon as t.je formal examinations were in ~.Jtuted before the commission. They felt confident that they could over come President Mitchell and show from the character of his testimony that the miners were in the wrong. Bu.u Mr. Mitchell fooled them. He was a splendid witness for his side which was stronger at the close of his examination than when that ex amination was begun. '1ke next step in the investigation beforc the commission, unless the hearings are called off, will be an in quiry into the character of the alleg ed anthracite coal combine, and Mr. Mitchell and his attorneys on this fpidnt are "loaded for bear." The opelators soon found this out, and the overtures for settlement camne very quickly thereafter. The promised disclosures would indirectly affect every trust interest in the coun try and turn the full light of day on their operations just as the president of the United States is writing a strong trust message for congress, and that body is preparing for ad vanced legislation on that question. To call public attention anew to the trust at such a time, the operators felt would be unwise. So they have offered to grant practically every de man of the miners without proceed ing further with the investigation be fore the commission. 'The miners have been anxious to get their evidence of the existence o1f a combination of the coal' roads before the commission and the coun try. Their case has been worked up carefully, re d is said to be flawless. No wonder the operators seem ready to quit. Their cause has been dam aged by the evidence already taken as to the health of the miners, the 1 shortness of life in the mining coun try, the prevalence of child labor, antl the general starvation conditions. which prevail. But the evidence as: to the responsibility for such condi tions was still in reserve. The existence and methods of .the Icombination of coal hauling roads were still to be exploited. The "strategic move to the rear" came as a necessary result of circumstances. it is,. pid here that the flnancial l intrestp" ppip al2y the railroad in 1 terests of Wall street, weht to J. P~ a Morgan and told him that if Mr.. f Mitchell andi his attorneys were per mitted to put before the country the 1 information they had collected re ...,..1:...r .,,.,o -, , ll 44. 1,,.b~ol might as well go out of business. THE N. P. ROBBER. Circumstances Connect Man Killed ii California With the Holdup.

Chicago, Nov. 23.-An explosioi that was heard for blocks in the dowi town district, occurred tonight in th rear of a gambling resort in Sout Clark street. While no one was ser ously injured the explosion caused widespread scare and attracted hmu dreds of persons to the scene. It wa the fourth similar occurrence of th week, the cause being a bomb in eac case. The object apparently was t frighten the gamblers. Nearly every window in the rear 'c the building was blown in and th gamblers were in a state of terrol Twelve girls employed in the tallo shop of A.
