PRES1BENT ROOSEVELT WILL
NOT MIX IN THE STRIKE. Government Could Properly Take Ac tion Through Bureau of Labor—Chi cago Union Votes to Support Na tional Officers—Vote $5000 to Strike Fund. Oyster Bay,. June 17.—President Roosevelt has referred to Charles . F. Neill, commissioner of labor, with out comment, the various appeals which have been made to him by wire and mail to intervene to prevent the threatened telegraphers' strike. The position is taken that no emergency exists such as obtained at the time the president intervened in the anthracite coal strike, but, on the contrary, the situation presented is one where ac tion by the government, if taken at all, may properly be initiated and directed < by the bureau of labor, of which Mr. Neill is the head. Attention is called to the fact that Mr. Neill has on his own motion acted with more or less success in several recent strikes simply by making an in vestigation and bringing to light the salient facts in the controversies, his reports being the basis on which a set tlement was later reached. Whether he will feel justified in pursuing the same course in the present instance is , not commented on here, as the presi dent has given Mr. Neill no intimation of any kind. At Chicago. Chicago.—Fifteen hundred tele graphers, members of the Commercial Telegraphers' union, at a meeting here Sunday afternoon, voted to support '■ the president and executive committee of their organization in any measures they deem necessary to bring about an adjustment of the operators' griev ances. Those present were chiefly em ployes of the Western Union and Postal Telegraph companies. Separate resolutions were passed by each group of employes, the Postal men advoeat ing "drastic measures" to enforce their demands and the Western Union operators serving 10 days' notice on the officials of the company in New York that they "must meet the em ployes' committee as represented by the Commercial Telegraphers' Union . of America, for discussion and adjust ment of grievances or bear the respon sibility for interference with public Vbusiness which would follow action that will be incumbent upon the Chi cago local union." A .$5000 strike fund was voted. Rep v resentatives of the Order of Railway Telegraphers assured the commercial operators of the support and sympathy of individual members of the railway union, but took no official action. In New York. The Commercial Telegraphers' union has not yet received an answer to the demands on the Western Union com pany. according to President S. Small of the union. President Small notified all the unions that the statement that the ad justment of grievances had been post poned was untrue, and directed them to hold themselves in readiness for important information. At San Francisco. ! At a meeting Sunday of 200 mem mers of local No. 34 of the Commercial Telegraphers' union a resolution was passed leaving the matter of securing I , an adjustment of grievances in the hands of the national president and executive secretary.

Boise, Idaho, June 17.—That Orchard as a wonderful witness cannot be denied and that all the cross-question of Richardson only helped to strengthen the testimony of the state is also true, but for all this there is ! nothing but optimism expressed by Haywood's legal regiment, in the cele brated case on trial here. So far these men hae been purely on the de fensive. Next week they expect to arry the war into Africa and they pt omise a sensational campaign. The star witnesses will be put for ard by the defense and the promise s made that their testimony will be r.o less alient than that of Orchard himself. One of those men will be Haywood and the other Steve Adams, although Adams was first listed as a itness for the state. He made a eon fesison corroborating Orchard's story. Then, as soon as he got an attorney, he repudiated this statement abso lutely, declaring it was extorted from im by Detective McFarland, through threats and promises. Immediately aft er he was taken to Wallace, Idaho, and placed on trial for the murder of red Tyler. The jury disagreed, stand ing seven for conviction to five for acquittal. Detective McFarland, how ever, seems determined to have his point if possible and it has been an nounced that Adams will be taken to Telluride, Colo., for trial for the mur er of Collins, superintendent of the Smuggler Union mine. Adams, takes his situation philosoph ically. He feels that every public of ficial's hand is against him and that the officers are determined to have him dance on the end of a rope in one state or another, he "does not give a , but he will give them a run for their money before they complete the job." It was decided that Mr. Darrow will make the opening statement for the defense on Wednesday, and immediate after the work of interrogating the 150 witnesses called in Haywoods' be half will be begun. "We intend to uncover this bloody trail which the mineowners have left throughout the entire region. The jury heard this man Naylor take the stand and recite how the militia had shot up miners' headquarters at Victor how he had deported men without re gard to their legal rights; how min ers had been openly slain and their murderers protected by the mineown ers' association, and we will show be fore this trial ends the reason the Pinkertons and the mineowners want ed Haywood, Moyer and Pettibone hanged and Orchard, the self-confessed murderer of a score of men, set free This statement was made by one of the leaders of the defense.

PRESENT DUMA ENDS ABOLISHING IT. the State. The Dissolution of the Russian Duma CZAR NICHOLAS ISSUES UKASE Followed the Refusal of That Body to Permit Arrest of Its Members 'of ; on Charges of Conspiracy Against St. Petersburg—Emperor Nicholas affixed his signature Sunday morning to an imperial ukase abolishing the piesent duma and ordering that the lections of members to its successor, hich is to meet November 14, to be held under the new election law, hich provides against the "submer gence of the educated classes by the uneducated masses." This act constitutes a virtual coup etat. and overrides the fundamental laws solemnly proclaimed by his maj esty on the eve Of the convocation of tue first duma, which declare that the lectoral law can never be changed ithout the consent of parliament it elf. This breach of the constitution justified by the great law of neces ty, the advisers of the emperor hold ing it impossible, under present condi tions, to secure a parliament capable of cooperating harmoniously with the crown and rescuing Russia from an archy and revolution. The tiKae is accompanied by a mani festo setting forth the motives which i ed the emperor to act. He adverts to'. the duma's rejection of temporary. laws, its refusal to condemn terrorism, the delay in ratifying the budget, the • evolutionary spirit of a large portion f its members, the abuse of the right of interpellation, and the failure of the uma to comply immediately with the emand for the exclusion of the 55 so ial democratic members charged with conspiracy. These various evils are ascribed to defects in the electoral law, conse quently the emperor decided to change he basis of suffrage so that every art of the Russian population should be represented in the lower house. The epresentation of the non-Russian na tionalities, the manifesto continues, should be decreased in order to pre ent these delegates from becoming a decisive factor in purely Russian ques tions and elections in the frontier re ions, where the standard of civic de elqpment is low, should be tempor irily suspended. These necessary changes in the mode of elections cannot be submitted o the duma, the composition of which unsatisfactory on account of the de fects in the election law itself, but to the authority which granted the first election law belongs the right to sub stitute new basis of suffrage. "God entrusted us with imperial au thority over our people." his majesty declares, "and before his throne we must answer for the fate of the Rus sian state. Conscious of this, we have aken a firm resolution to bring to an end the great task of ttye transforma tion of Russia begun by us and to grant Russia a new electoral law, the publication of which we entrust to the uling senate. "P'rorn our loyal subjects we expect a hearty and unanimous service to the atherland whose sons ever have been the fortress of her power, glory and prestige. NICHOLAS." Duma Resisted Arrests. The dissolution of the Russian duma followed the refusal of that body to permit the arrest of a number of its members on the charge of conspiracy against the state. It has been freely predicted ever since the lower house first met, March 5, that its dissolution was only a question of time and the many official denials never carried con viction. The history of this duma, like its predecessor, has been one of almost constant clashes with the government. This, in spite of the fact that a con sistent effort was made in some quar ters to make the duma an effective legislative body and that the govern ment's program for legislation contain ed a number of reforms. The cabinet decided it would give parliament every chance to justify its existence. The deputies, however, are insistent on rad ical changes, and their persistence re sulted in what amounts to a charge by the government that the duma was a shelter for conspiracy and treason. The situation entered upon its final phase when revolutionary members went to London and took part in a congress which had for its avowed purpose the upsetting of the throne of the czar. Champion Sleeper Is Dead. Kansas City, Mo., June 19.—Thomas C. Webster, aged 60 years, of Horse shoe Bend, Idaho, who began to sleep on a train between Kansas City and Denver on April 1, and who did not open his eyes thereafter for 77 days, died at the General hospital Sunday.

Salt Lake City, Utah, June 19.— -areu * Sugar company and the Western Idaho Sugar company, announces that the eastern stockholders in the three cor porations have approved the plans for their consolidation. It is proposed to m erge the companies under the name 'of the Idaho Sugar company, issue $1,000,000 preferred and $1,900.000 of com muu stock and exchange for old stock on the following basis: Utah Sugar preferred, $10 a share; Idaho Sugar preferred. $11 a share, and West jern Idaho Sugar preferred, $12.50 a share. the Harriman interests the next. The i plan would have expired in 1914. The termination of this plan is said to be without prejudice to either party. The Chicago & Alton officials • explained that it was. simply an in stance of letting stockholders manage After this distribution there will re main $1,900,000 of the amalgamated stock, which will be put into the treas ury for improvements. A part of it will be used to pay for a new factory at Payette, Idaho. Harriman is Out. The agreement between the Harri man interests and the Rock Island company, entered into in 1904 for the control of the Chicago & Alton rail road. has been abrogated by mutual consent, according to an authoritative announcement made recently. In the future, it was state, the Chicago & Alton stockholders will manage the property. Under the agreement which has just been abrogated the Rock Island company and the Harriman in terests alternately controlled the Chi cago & Alton, the Rock Island com pany being in control one year and their own affairs. It was felt that this policy would best subserve the in terests of the stockholders. There is to be no change, according to the Chi cago & Alton officials, in (lie policy of tlie road, which has been managed by the Rock Island under the joint con trol agreement since last September. UNGER'S BODY CONCRETE BRICK Boston Undertakers Refuse to Bury Ponderous Bulk. Unable to find an undertaker will ing to bury the remains of Herman Unger, the Pittsburg suicide, Unger's brother Odd Fellows in Boston have written to his home lodge asking them to take charge of their embarrassing bequest. The difficulty arises from the fact that in pursuance of Unger's dying request, the Odd Fellows of Bos ton had his body cremated and mixed the ashes with cement, making a con crete brick weighing over 100 pounds. For several days now this huge brick has been in the yard of the Water Proofing company. Not only have un dertakers refused to handle it, but He brew cemeteries have declined to re ceive it because Unger was a suicide. The Odd Fellows have a burial certi ficate, however, and unless the under takers make terms or the Pittsburg Odd Fellows take charge, Unger's re mains are likely to bake in I he sun at the brickyard for an indefinite period.

IS THE VERDICT OF TIMBER - w _ F _ Kettenback, G. H. Rester and W. Dwyer Charged With Conspiracy on Five Counts, Guilty of Two—Vic tory for Prosecution—Cases Will Be Carried to U. S. Court of Appeals. Moscow, Idaho, June 17.—William F. Kettenbach, George H. Kester and William Dwyer, the first named the Lewiston bankers, charged with con spiracy to defraud the government in timber land entries, were found guilty on two of the counts in the federal court Sunday evening and acquitted on the remaining counts. The jury sud denly reached a verdict at 9 o'clock, after naving deliberated 34 hours. Each of the three defendants was charged with conspiracy on five counts, each representing a quarter of section of land, the tracts being se cured at an average price of $800 each. The particular counts under which they were convicted are believed to be counts 3 and 4 ,the first one being known as the Charles Carey count, the second as the Guy L. Wilson count. The jury reached a verdict shortly before bedtime, the bamff notifying the court officials, who instructed them to report immediately at the courtroom. At 8:45 o'clock the jury filed slowly into the box, with the exception of J. W. Robinson, who was carried on a cot, his aged form covered with blan kets, his head being swathed in ban dage's, which completely covered his snow-white hair and beard. Judge Deitrieh ascended the bench and or dered a poll of the jury. In low tones he inquired if the jury had reached a verdict, and was informed they had. Taking the closely written document.! he scanned its contents in asboluato silenee. Addressing the spectators, Judge Deitrieh requested that no dem onstrations he made when the verdict was read. The verdict is considered a victory for the prosecution in almost, every particular. The stubbornly fought case has occupied four weeks. No indication was made by attor-j neys for the defense as to the likdi-1 hood of appeal, but it is considered certain the case will lie carried least to tlie United States court of ap peals. The Specific Charges. Guy L. Wilson, upon whose testi mony one of the verdicts of guilty was reached, was the first witness called in the case. He said on tlie witness stand that, Dwyer promised him $150 for filing on a timber claim and that he drove through the desired land with Dwyer at the latter's expense. He filed on it some time later, as Dwyer told him that the land was not yet ready for occupancy. At the time of tlie fa mous lineup in front of the Lewiston land office, Wilson testified that he was unable to he present and that Dwyer hired a hoy to substitute for him. The witness also said that Dwyer coached him on the answers he should make at the land office and gave him his filing fee and $411 to pay on final proof. After deeding the land to Ket tenbach and Kester he received a check for $i38. Aoki May Be Recalled.

Geographical Survey Determining the Depth of Death Valley, Death Valley, California, is the low est point in the United States, but to the surprise of everyone acquainted with the region the United States geo logical survey has ascertained by the use of a line of spirit levels that the depth of that area is not so great as had been supposed. The final compu tations have not yet been made, but the preliminary figures give for the lowest point a depth of 270 feet be low sea level. Bennett's well, which is near this point, is 200 feet below sea level. These figures may be altered by two or three feet on the final comput ing. but they are probably not more than three feet in error. The geolog ical survey now has elevation marks on the highest and lowest points of dry laud in the United States. It is a strange coincidence, says the survey report, that these two extremes are in southern California, and o-nly seventy-five miles apart. Mount Whit ney is a foot or two more than 14,500 feet above the sea level, while Death Valley, as above stated, is 270 feet be low. Before the Salton sink, also la Southern California, was flooded by the Colorado river it contained the low est point of dry land in this country, a spot 287 feet below sea level. Previous estimates of the depth of Death Valley, based on barometer read ings, gave for the lowest point figures varying from 250 to 450 feet below sea level. The level line of the geo logical survey is believed to be the first accurate determination of elevations in that locality ever made. California now goes on record as the State in which extremes meet—the highest and lowest points of dry land. —New York Sun.
