Relieved of the nece.ssity of im mediate action by the postponement of tho hanging of Dr. H. II. Crippen tor two weeks, the State Department will probably sua-gest that any evidence that Belle Elmore Crippen.his supposed vic tim, is still alivc, as is reported by Fran cis Tracy Tohin. a Philadelphia lawyer be laid before the British consul at Phila? delphia. The department does not con lider it neoesflary to interfere. It ii ra garded solely as a matter for the con ilerati'iiofthelhitiiihauthorities. Ifihe evidence, that s!ie is alivc issuf'iei.tit il is for them to make a search for her or to dctertninc, tbrOflgh persons who.

Dr. Crippen to be llangid WfldBMBiay, November Ti Will Appeal t?. BsaaM Secretarj. london, Nov. 7.- The dato for the executioaby baogingol Dr. H. II. Crippen, murderer of his wife, Belle Elmore, tlie music hall singer, was today postponed for two weeks or more. Though BO detinite dato has heen set, il is probable Crippen will 1?. on Wednesday, November 28. The day originally fued was tomorrow. Crippen was overjoyed when the high flherifl informed him of the post? ponement. "I believe that something Will yet intervenc to prove my innocence," he i.'cclarcd. The coodemned man was cautioned against lclting his hopes mount too bigh. The postponement was ordered odicially by the Home Oflice, whieh is taken by many to indicate that Home Secretary Winston Churchill will at 1. ast give the case a thorough hearing before he allows Crippen to go to the gallows. Later in the dav it wassemi-ofhcially announeed that tho executien would take place on Wednesday, November ?J.'l, unless the Home Secretary shall deeidc to grant a eommutation or par? don to the wife murderer. At Seotland Yard it was said that tho postponement of the executlon had nothing to do with the Philadelphia re? port that Mrs. Crippen is alive and liid iog ns tbe result of a fiendish plot to ?end her buaband to death. Tbe auth orities declared that they had not beard ol tbe rumor, nor had they heard of the offer of Dr. Munyon, the Phila? delphia patient medicine manufacturjr, to pay $50,000 for tnformation leading to the discovery of Belle Elmore alive. Solicitor Newport, who has repreaantad Crippen ever since the latter was arrested at Father Point, Que., is busily engaged witb the other lawyerfl in drafting a petition to Home Secretary Winston Churchill, askiofl eitber that he grant an uncon ditional pardon to Crippen, or that he commuta the sentence to life imprison ment. Acting in the king's name, the home secretary is now the only official who has the power to save Crippen from thegcllows. While it is believed Churchill will investigate the cafa thoroogbly, it is hanlly likely he will interfere to save the prisoner. lt is against precedent in Kngland for the home secictary to intervcne when a jury has found a prisoner guilty and the Court of Crimitial Appeal has sua tained the verdict. Unleae, tberefore, Crippen _ lawyers ean hring to ligbl a p-real deal of bitherto unrevealed avi deiice, it is believed the American will die on .November 23. In some quarters, it is said the post ponement was due to the ancient Eng? lish CUStom which allows a prisonei two Sundays on earth between thefmal hearing of his caae and the date of the execution. Crippen was allowed two Sundays between hia original trial and the date first tixed. An elderlv, unidentilied man ap? peared at tbc Camhridge police court loday and requested that he be allowed io hang in place of Dr. Crippen, urging ihat the professional skill of the latter would prove a blessing to humanity. ffbereaa he himself was of no value to the world. The man displayed eccett ? ricitiesa-d hisinsaoity will be probably investigaled. I'hiladelphia, Nov. 7.?In apite al rtatements made hy Duke liuoyon, on behall of his fathe.r, IVof. J. M. HmV ran, that he eonsiders repoits that Belle Kltiiore Crippen is alive to be all 'boah,'' Francis Tracy Tobin, a lawyei ol this city, who is Hatcd to Barrister A. A. Tobin, Crippen's counsel before the Court of Appeals. declared today that if he is given money to make a seareh of the western cities. he can produee the woman for who murder Dr. H. H. Crippen was condemncd to death. Because he reseutcd being told how to shell corn, Tom Jackson a Seattle ncero working for Walter Brauer. in Henrico countv, Va.. tried to kill another negro with a sb t gun today. Sixtcen men were killed in two ex ploaiona in the Lawson mine at Black Diamond, 30 milee sontheast of Seattle, ^'ash., early yest?rday morning. THF STRIKE IX NEW YORK. Clty About to I'ace ?*erlou? Conditions? Samuel Gouipers Dirrrtlug Strike. New Vork. Nov. 7.? The joint exc eutive couneil of the loeal unions atliliated with the International Brother bood of Tianisters went into session to? day determined to force peace with the big express companies or tie up every wheel in the grcater city and aurround ing towns. As an earuest of what may be ex? pected 1,000 drivers of taxicabs and more than half of the delivery wagon drivers employed by Park * Tilford did not report for work this tnorn'mg. Other drivers were crdered to hold themsehea iu readiness for the word to quit. Tliefight of the nieu is being direet? ed bv Samuel Gompcrs, head of the American Federation of I_bor, who estahlished beadquarters in the Hotel Victoria. Not iu years has this city faced a situation so fraught with danger as at present. If a general strike 13 ordered tbe first place- to he tied up will be the big coal aclivery yards. These aupply the coal which keep* thebigdown-towu skyscrapeis with the fuel for ruuning elevators and heating purposes. In eidentally the coal wagon drivers are a hardv bunch that can be depended on io keep the policemen busy in case they take it into tlieir heads to pull strike breakers from llio wagona. Tbe de? livery wagon drivers, drivera of mail and city garbage aud ash collecting wagona are al! well organized aud cau be ordered out on aignal. Tho strike of the taxicab chauffeurs WM decided on to enforce closed shop coodittona. There are 3,000 union chauffeurs in the city, but those called 001 were only the ones employed l.y Ooocerns that do not recogni/.e the union. Tolice guards have been sent to nll of the garagss to prevent din order. Tlie ex press wagona ofthe big com? panies were moving through the city loday with inscriptions taeked v\ them icading: "This wagon is engagt d in iu tcrstate eoiwnerca only." Through this sign the companieaplaaned lo u*?' iround the dectsioa ?>f the city aatbori lies that every driver must have a city license. InddentaUy it was said that tbe express eoiupanies expected, in Caaa of \lolciice, to call on tho federal government for protection. Daniel .1. Tobin, president of the [oternational Brolliar__od of Team Itera, said jual before he entered tlie conference of the leaders that he oon* Mdered lliesitualion -erious. Ho said tliat he had done all in his p?wer to ar range amicabie settlement, hut that the othcers ofthe express companies diil not seem inclined to make any conc.es whataoever to the men. WhiL refusing to adinit that the oiitcome of the conference will hc a general strike order, Tobin's attitude indicated thal be. expects nothing abe. The condition of Valentino Hoffman, leader of the loeal strike, who was stric_en with paraljsis earljjatoday, was reported to be serious today. The at tending physician said that his attack was due to overwork in connectioti with the strike. The meeting of the axecutivs couneil dedded to pOStpone delinitc action un? til tomorrow in tho hope that Valen tine Iloffnian, one of the strike leaders. will he able to hc present. The rank anc filed of the- teamsters are almost unanimmisly in favor of the strike and the indieatiohs this afternoon were that all teamsters would be called out to? morrow. Several of the lugstoressignod up to? day with tho teamsters and their drivers returned to work. Tho express com? paniea, bowever, have not shown the ?dightestsign of wcakening. Hats Cliange C'ominuuloii. Norristown, Pa,, Nov. 7.~At (ommunion services in the Hawa Avenue iMethodist Cliurch yester? day, the pastor, Rev. Frank E.

In explanation, he said ho found this course neeessary, hy reason ofthe fact that Ihfl big hats worn by tbe women made it impossible for him to see whethcr the communiesnU ro ceived any of tho wine when he lifted it to their lips.
