VOL.XXII BILLINGS, MONTANA TUESDAY,APRIL, 5. 1907. NO.99 STRIKE HAS BEEN AVERTED WESTERN ROADS AND TRAIN- C MEN ADJUST DIFFERENCES. t CONCESSIONS WY DOT Employes Abandon Demand for Nine Hour Day and Companies Increase Advance in Pay Offered-Synopsis C of Agreement. Chicago, April 4.-The difference of the western railroads and the mem bers of the Order of Conductors and of the Brotherhood of Railway Train- t men, were adjusted today. The men abandoned their demand for a nine hour work day, and the railroads made an advance over their previous propositions in the pay of baggage- I men, flagmen and brakemen of $1.50 per month. The original demands of the men were for an increase of 12 per cent and for a working day of nine hours. The managers offered an increase of pay of 10 per cent and declined to grant the nine-hour day. The agreement was reached mainly through the efforts of Chairman Knapp of the interstate commerce commission and Chairman Neill of the United States labor commission. The new agreement which goes into effect dating from April 1, follows: The pay of conductors in the pas senger service to be increased $10 per month; that of baggagemen $7.50 I and that of the flagmen and brakemen $6.50 per month, as applied to the schedules in effect November 1, 1906. The railroads are not to make any reduction in crews or increase in I mileage for the purpose of offsetting the increased wages given the pas senger trainmen. Overtime in the I passenger service is to be allowed on I the basis of 15 miles per hour, to be I computed for each part of the run sep arately. Time is to begin at the scheduled time of leaving. Roads on a basis of more than 10 hours per day for a helper or construction train service are to make no increase in the rates paid for such service. The increases granted in the aggre gate are to apply to rates for special service as specified in the individual schedule. Upon roads having a bet ter basis for a day's work or for pay ment of overtime or other allowances in all branches of train service, the acceptance of this agreement is not to act as a reduction. The Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen were also granted today by the railroads an increase of 10 per cent. THEIR DEMANDS SATISFIED. Rio Grande Engineers and Firemen Granted an Advance. Denver, Colo, April 4.-As a result of conferences between Denver & Rio Grande railroad officials and commit tees representing the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Firemen, the engineers will receive an increase of 7% per cent and improved working conditions, effective April 1.

Two Deaths by Explosion in Frank Coal Mine. Vancouver B. C., April 4.-A spe cial from Frank, Alberta, says: An explosion of gas occurred in No. 4 colliery of the International Coal and Coke company, causing the death of three men. Eight other miners were taken out unconscious, but all recovered and will survive. The dead are: CHARLES HUTTON, fire bose. HENRY GREWOUTT. One man, name unknown. The men were not killed by the ex plosion, but succumbed to the after damp. Hutton was not in the mine at the time of the explosion, but rushed in when he heard of it and was over come. Grewcutt escaped, but went back for his son and was suffocated. Grewcutt was found in a chute, where he had fallen while trying to escape. Of the eight others affected only two were burned by gas, the remain der being overcome by the after damp while escaping or assisting in the work of rescue. It is impossible yet to ascertain the cause of the explo sion, but it is determined that the mine is not damaged to any great extent. ENDS LIFE WITH ROPE James Wesner Hangs Himself in Barn at Electric-Despondency Believed to Be the Cause-Had Made Similar Attempts Before. (Special to The Gazette.) Livingston, Mont., April 4.-The man who suicided at Electric yester day was found to be James Weaner, a foreigner, and a man about 48 years old. He was but little known about the county and had no friends, appar ently and no confidants. According to some notes in a pocketbook found on his person, he had a brother in New York and a sister in Pennsylvania. His writing was in German and hard to decipher. A message dated March 5th, whenAe apparently intended com mitting suicide, was scratched in the same note book, stating that he had a certain sum of money coming from Mr. Roll, a farmer for whom he was working in Cinnabar basin. The writ ing was not very legible, but that the man had five children in Europe was made out from the note. Sheriff Mc Cue and Coroner Leard made inves tigation of the hanging today and were thoroughly satisfied that it was plainly a case of suicide. The body was found hanging to a cross-beam in the barn, in the rear of J. H. Pisor's house-at Electric. The rope was a piece of clothesline that the man had carried with him for sometime past. To reach the beam he stood on a water trough which he set on end. When he stepped off with the noose around his neck the distance was not sufficient to allow the body to dangle. His feet were dragging on the ground, but there was no question but his neck- was instantly broken. The man worked about at ranching and common laboring at Cooke City and different points in the upper Yel lowstone for over a year. He came to Electric about four days ago. He had been drinking, but not excessive ly. He was well dressed and had $3 in cash in his pocket. People who re membered him at Aldridge and Elec tric noticed last fall some ugly scars about his neck. When questioned he could not give any sensible answer,'so it was concluded that the act which he carried out successfully yesterday was not his first attempt. WEBSTER STILL UNCONSCIOUS. Strange Case of Idaho Man Puzzles Kansas City Physicians. Kansas City, Mo., April 4. T. S. Webster, who was taken from a Union Pacific train in a semi-conscious con dition and removed to the city hospi tal, was still unconscious this even ing. Nothing is known of Webster, except that he was traveling from Horseshoe Bend, Idaho, to Gainiswille, Ga. "He has never uttered a word since he was brought here," said the house surgeon this morning. "His body shows no marks or bruises and the cause of hiss condition is a mys te' to us." HELD FOR MANSLAUGHTER. Colton, Cal., April 4.-The coroner today swore out warrants for the ar rest of the employes of the Southern Pacific who were held responsible for the wreck March 28 in which 25 peo ple were killed and injured. The charge is manslaughter without mal ice. CONSTANTINE ARRESTED. New York, April 4.-The man ar rested in Brooklyn on suspicion that he murdered Mrs. A. W. Gentry - of Chicago admitted today that he is Constantine. He said that he did not kill Mrs. Gentry, but that she com mitted suicide in his presence. He said he was expecting to return to In a statement to the police taken down by a stenographer tonight, Con stantine gave a more detailed account of his experiences In the Gentry home, though In the main, the facts agree with his earlier statement. He went to the Gentry house upon the trail of another landlady whom he had sought a room, and hired a room from Mrs. Gentry. He did no work for the next two weeks. Meantime another man named Scott hired a room In the house and subsequently he had a difference with Mrs. Gentry. Scott claimed he had lost some papers and that there were thieves in the house. Constantine said Mrs. Gentry killed herself with his revolver, but he did not know how she got possession of it. After he left the home, Constantine said, he pawned a diamond ring, re celving, he thinks, $80. He also pawned a watch, chain and fob for $45. He took the 1:45 p. m. trals for New York. HOLD BOTH TRANSACTIONS ARE LEGAL Harriman Lawyers Argue Legality of Alton and Union Pa cific-Southern Pacific Deals. Washington, April 4.-Argument in the matter of E. H. Harriman's rail road transactions was begun before the interstate commerce commissi. n today. The case commenced at 10 o'clock, and when they adjourned bor the day at 4:30, Harriman's attorneys had not concluded their presentation in his behalf. The first of the series of addresses was made by Attorney Paul D. Cra vath, who represented not only Har riman, but Kuhn, Loeb & Co. also, and he was followed cy Judge R. S. Lovett and John G. IMilburn. Mr. Cra vath dealt especially with the Chicago & Alton recapitalization, while Mr. Lovett devoted most of his attention to the attack on the consolidation of the Union Pacific and the Southern Pacific roads. Mr. Cravath contended that the Chicago & Alton transaction had been misunderstood by both the commis sion and the public, and declared the proceeding followed was not unusual in financial transactions. With reference to the Southern Pa cific and Union Pacific roads, Mr. Lov ett declared they were not competing lines, but argued that even if they were, the transaction had not been illegal because the Southern Pacific had been purchased outright by the Union Pacific, which was not in con travention of the constitution. Mr. Milburn said the general ap plication of the anti-trust law to the railroads of the country as it wss proposed to apply it in the Southern Pacific-Union Pacific deal would pit every system upon the defensive and the most of them would have greater difficulty than would the Union Pacific in meeting the attacks. That no court had ever held that a bona fide purchase by one company of the stock of another is in violation of the anti-trust act, Mr. Lovett as serted. He admitted that there had been some combination between the Union Pacific and' the Southern Pa cific, but declared if the volume of business had been much larger it would have no bearing on the pur chase of one road by the owners of the other, as that purchase was of it self a legitimate business transaction of such a character that the courts .would not interfere with it. There could be no curtailment of the `right to buy property under the anti-trust act. "Suppose the motive of the pur STATEMENT IS ISSUED. Vatican Authorities Reply to Letters Recently Published. Rome, April 4.-The vatican author ities today made a statement on th1 supject of Papal Secretary of State Merry iiel Val's letter to Mgr. Mon tagnini, dated August 12, 1905, encou- aging Catholic demonstrations against the law providing for the separation of church and state. The staitement says the French government "took advantage of the letter to insinuate that Mgr. Montagnini's correspond ence contained documents showing the vatican had urged that tumultous demonstrations be made against the taking of church inventories, and es pecially by the anti-repubican par ties." The vatican adds that the taking of the inventories occurred in December, 1905, and January, 1906, while Cardi nal Merry Del Val's letter was writ ten in the previous August, before the pacific legal protests of the French Gatholic clergy and latety against the separation of church and state, which at that time was merely a pr> posed legislative measure. WILL SUCCEED DOWIE John A. Lewis Named in Last Will and Testament of the Late Elijah to Look After the Interests of Zion City. Chicago, April 4.-John A. Lewis is to become successor to John L. Alex ander Dowie in Zion City in accord ance with the will of the late leader.

Dowie be queaths the widow's dower to Mrs. Dowie and to his son, Gladstone Dowie, he gives $10. In naming Mr. Lewis as his suc - cessor, Dowle states that by mis t placed confidence, title to his property 7 has been placed in jeopardy, and provides that Lewis employ counsel 1 and take all necessary steps to nego tiate final decision in the court of last resort. a In the event of a decision that he k holds the property, and that Dowie a himself had no authority to appoint a successor as overseer, the will pro vides that Lewis call into council four other men of his selection, who shall e determine what final disposition shall be made of the trust estate. d d RUNS INTO OPEN SWITCH. Bartlesville, I. T., April 4.-South 1e bound M. K. & T. passenger train No. e- 21 ran into an open switch in this 0 city today and crashed into a string )r of freight cars. Several persons were In badly shaken up, but none seriously hurt. chase was to get ri of competition?" asked Commission' Clements. "I believe the p .dhaser would still have the right to $ "Do you apply that doctrine to pub lic utility corporations!" asked Com missioner Clarke. "Assuming that they have the power under their charters, I should say yes." "And you would regard the suspen sion of competition as merely inci dental?" Mr. Clarke asked. "I am inclined to that opinion," an swered Mr. Lovett. He contended, however, that in the Southern Pacific-Union Pacific trans action the suppression of. competition had been so remote as to. remove that feature as a motive for the transac tion. He also attemptedtto show it was the design of congress that the Pa cific roads should be operated as one line, regardless of the diversity of ownership, and referred to the ear lier purchase of the Central Pacific by the Southern Pacific as a prece dent for Harriman's acquisition of the Southern Pacific. Reverting to the question of the suppression of competition, he outlined the situa tion with reference toi the Union Pa cific, which had just efnrged from a receivership, and askdd: "Does any sane man suppose it would enter upon this transaction for the mere purpose of suppressing com petition?" As a matter of act, lie said, the Union Pacific was in no position to control transcontinentA business, and the men in charge 4 it had found themselves compelle to buy the Southern Pacific to protect their own interests. They kne 'they must get an outlet to the Pacific coast, which they must do by securing control.of the Central Pacific, then owned by the Southern Pacific; or build a line to the ocean. Naturally they had chosen the former course.! The Union Pacific must either secure the Central Pacific or see it absorb~d by a ri val, which it could not consent to, even though the Southern Pacific owned the "Sunset" line, as well as the Central Pacific. Hence, he ar gued, the transaction. Replying to Mr. Clements, Mr. Lov ett said that the Union Pacific had bought into the Sanita Fe as an in. .vestment. He contended the, legali ty of this transaction, and, whep re minded that his position was at va riance with that of Mr. Harriman, LETTER THIEF IS ARRESTED HARRIMAN MATTER WILL GO TO COURT, LAW GOVERNS THE CASE Discharged Employe Sells Stenograph Ic Notes to Newspaper and Causes National Sensation - Prisoner Is Greatly Perplexed and Will Not Talk. New York, April 4.-Frank W. Hill, a stenographer, was arrested tonight, charged with having sold to a news paper a personal letter of E. H. Har riman. The warrant was sworn to by Alexander Millar, secretary of the Union -Pacific Railroad company, of which Harriman is president. The letter in question was address ed by Harriman to Sydney Webster and was first published in the World here last Tuesday morning. State ments therein contained called forth the reply from President Roosevelt Tuesday afternoon. Hill is 37 years of age and lives at Brooklyn. Action against Hill was taken un der the section of the penal code, which defines as a misdemeanor the act of "a person who wilfully and without authority either takes a let ter, telegram or private paper belong ing to another, or a copy thereof and publishes the whole or any part there of." Assistant District Attorney Paul Kroel has charge of the case and it was said the arrest will, it is believed, discourage the publication of letter: of another prominent man, which ac cording to report recently had been offered for sale. A copy of the Harriman letter in which the writer stated that the chief executive had appealed to him for funds for the campaign of 1904, mane, it is alleged, from Hill's stenographic notes and in his handwriting, was offered for sale to a Brooklyn paper and later to a New York paper, both of which declined to purchase. The New York paper subsequently turned the copy over to the district attorney's office. Hill was employed 'in Mr. Harri man's office for 21 years. About a year ago he was discharged, because of friction with other employes. Recently he entered the brokerage office of De Coppel & Doremus. He has a wife and two children. Hill was placed in a cell for the night and will be arraigned tomorrow. When asked whether he cared to make any explanation he replied that said one might easily differ from that gentleman in a legal question Commissioner Clarke said such a line of reasoning would lead to the conclusion, that one man with suffi cient money might control all the railroads of the country, and Mr. Lovett said he did not believe that the constitution would Interfere with such a right. Mr. Lovett contended that the anti-trust law does not deal with the question of the acquisition of the stock of one company by an other, but that its sole purpose is to prevent the suppression of competi tion in restraint of trade. No such result, he declared, had followed the Union Pacific purchase of the South ern Pacific securities. Speaking of Sen. Clark's line from Salt Lake to Los Angeles, which the senator had built in conjunction with the Union Pacific stockholders, Mr. Lovett contended for their right to enter upon this enterprise. While he was willing to admit the law would prevent the acquisition by one com pany of a parallel road, he argued that this prohibition does not extend to the construction of a parallel line. In reply to Mr. Lane, he said there had been no change In the ownership of the Glark road since the begin ning of the hearing. Attorney Milburn expressed the opinion that if the Southern Pacific Union Pacific system was illegal ev ery railroad system in the United States was illegal. He considered the questions involved the most im portant that possibly could be raised in connection with the railroads. He said he was sure other systems would have more difficulty than he and his fellow counsel In sustaining their con tentions. Purchase of the ' Southern Pacific, he declared, was legal under the anti-trust law. "If you make illegal every pur chase of competing property, you stop the business of the world," he asserted, and then declared the wheels could not revolve for 24 hours under such a restriction. In support of the assertion "that the great mass of business in the acquisition of property interferes with competi tion," he referred to the general ten dency toward consolidation of busi ness Interests. All *these combina tions rest upon the right of purchase, he said, and he contended that sqch a right was recognized regardless of its effect upon competition. Mr. Milburn will continue tomor row. he was too greatly perplexed to dis cuss the matter. Mr. Harriman, or any one connected with his office, refused to comment upon the arrest. HARRIMAN HAS SUBSIDED. Does Not Intend to Continue Contro versy with President. New York, April 4.-E. H. Harri man today made the following state ment relative to the recent exchange of correspondence between himself and President Roosevelt: "I do not intend to continue this controversy. You gentlemen (mean ing the reporters) must try to help me, and not ask me to answer ques tions, the answers to which are self evident. "Everybody knows that the contest for the senatorship in 1904 was be tween Messrs. Black and Depew, and there could not possibly have been any other candidate. There was no bargain whereby money was to be raised in consideration of having De pew appointed ambassador to France and made United States senator, as my letter to Mr. Webster does not state. That part of the agreement was for the purpose of harmonizing the Black4Depew forces, if necessary." COMPELLED TO RESIGN Colonial Office Forced Swettenham's Resignation, Much to Satisfaction of All Englishmen-Letter Falls Into Hands of Negro Correspondent. London, April 4.-The Standard to day declares it was able to publish for the first time the circumstances lead ing to the resignation or Sir Alexan der Swettenham as governor of Ja maica. The paper says that accord ing to Sir Alexander's own statement in a letter to an intimate friend, he resigned in consequence of a peremp tory demand from the colonial office to apologize to Rear Admiral Davis. To this Sir Alexander replied that if such a course was necessary he would do so with pleasure, but that such a compulsory apology carried with it his resignation. Sir Alexan der denies emphatically that there was any dispute between him and the American admiral at the time of the Kingston earthquake, saying: "We were the best of friends dur ing the whole time the admiral was here. He had the use of one of my private carriages, and drove around with my secretary." The Standard adds that his letter was written privately, as one friend might write to another, but it fell into the hands of a negro newspaper cor respondent. If the documents referr ing to the resignation of Sir Alexan der were published, the paper con cludes, it would be found that the statement that he applied to be re tired "on the grounds of age." was en c tirely misleading. WTH fIESERVAT'IOI06. Powers Accept Ruselan Program for Hague Peace Conference. Washington, April 4.-Baron Rosen, the Russian ambassador, today deliv ered to Secretary Root the Russian note relative to the Hague peace con ference, to be held in June.

PRFSIDENT HAS PROOF White House Holds Evidence of Hearst-Harriman-Rockefeller Com bine to Defeat Roosevelt Policy in Next Congress. Washington, April 4.-It was said on authority at the White House to day that there was ample evidence at hand for the claim the president holds that there is a movement afoot to defeat his policy in the next con gress and in the next convention. It is. declared that the Hearst-Harriman Rockefeller combine has already a fund of $5,000,000 with which to car ry on its campaign in opposition - to the president. It was further au thoritatively said: "They are gathering up the loose ends, but the movement will flatten out. It is apparent in Ohio and Penn sylvania, in fact it extends across the entire country. The scheme was thoroughly divulged at a recent din ner and reached the White House through a friend of the president. The scheme of the people behind the movenent is to bus newspapers and public men and others who may as sist the opponents of the president in the work." It was also stated authoritatively at the White House today that :part of the plan to encompass the defeat of the president's policy is the election of state delegates to the national convention from those states known to favor the president, these: dele gates to be instructed for President Roosevelt notwithstanding knowledge in advance that the president would not be a candidate for renomination. Then, according to the statement, made upon the president declining to be a candidate for renomination, as he said he would decline, the dele gates are to consider themselves free and are to switch over to some op ponent of the president and the poli cies for which he is standing. The secret of the alleged combina tion, it was stated, at the White House, first leaked out at a dinner in this city attended by a number of an ti-Roosevelt republicans a few weeks ago. A friend of President Roosevelt who was present at the dinner carried the news to the White House. €NTERTAINED IN ROME. Many Americans Attend Notable Dinner at Vatican.
