In the Interest of the striking miners and
labor in general."
Four other resolutions,- protesting
•gainst government by injunction; sug
gesting public ownership of railroads
as a most necessary reform; urging up
on all liberty-loving citizens to remem
ber and obey article 2 of the constitution,
and suggesting that the ballot is the
best and safest means for the ameliora
tion of the hardships of the laboring
classes, were also embodied ln the plat
As soon as It was before the convention
• dozen delegates clamored for recog
nition. Debate was finally limited to
five minutes.
The delegates were eager for work,
and the afternoon session was set in mo
tion promptly at 2 oclock. After consid
erable talk, Mr. Williams, a St. Louts
delegate, endeavored to have the coming
convention held in St. Louis. It was de
cided that the matter should remain as
introduced in the platform and the labor
congress will be held in Chicago on Mon
day, September 27.
The third plank in the platform was
■mended by the use of the word "prop
er" before "use of the ballot," and the
resolution now reads as follows:
. "Resolved, That we consider the prop
•r,.use of the ballot as the best and saf
est means for the amelioration of the
hardships under which the laboring
class suffers."
Mr. Webster of St. Louis wanted to
know If these "milk and water resolu
tions disposed of the pertinent matter of
government by injunction." He wanted
congress to Investigate this matter.
"Why," said Mr. Sovereign, "ihis con
vention has rejected a proposition look
ing to this very end. Even ir congress
did give us the rights we want, the
courts of the country would have the
power of injunction and they could then
throttle us. The convention should in
form the world that if this matter is to
be tested the miners should break all
Mr. Sovereign said he was willing to
go tc Jail in support if his idea.
"It is time," said Mr. Sovereign, fer
vently, "to bring the miners and courts
face to face in this matter and farce an
issue. Fill up the jtiil with violators of
injunctions and when the men who
started this movement are incarcerated
thousands of others will be found to
fill their places. (Cheers.) The labor
ing people can vote for years, but noth
ing can be accomplished. Let us re-
organize this government," shouted Mr.
Sovereign. "Let us stand up and assert
ourselves. Behind these injunctions
stand gatling guns and Winchesters, but
we fear them not. Let us hold up the
flag and tear down the courts. We stand
on our dignity ami will have our liberty
from this time on," shouted Mr. Sov
The convention broke into wild cheer
ing, which developed into a spontaneous
call for Mr. Debs. He rose from his seat
and came slowly to the platform. When
the cheering ceased, Mr. Debs began a
apeech, which was interrupted at the
end of nearly every sentence by cheer
ing and hand-clapping. He said:
"I believe the gravity of the industrial
situation in this country Is well under
stood. It is quite evident the delegates
to thisconvention recognize the fact that
civil liberty Is dead in America. I have
said and say again, for the last time,
I have appealed to the courts for Justice
and shall appeal to them no more. The
A. R. U. expended. $45,000 to have the
question of civil rights tested" in the su
preme court of the United States, only
to be told that we have no rights that
capital was bound to respect. Shall we
appeal to the supreme court again? No,
We appeal to this convention and the
country for an uprising of all the com
mon people in every walk of life to beat
back the courts and re-enthrone the
rights of the American people. Labor
day Is near. What shall we d"? I pre
' d'ict, my friends, that we shall see the
extraordinary spectacle of enslaved la
bor rattling its chains and dianclng to the
music. Labor is the cheapest commod
ity on God's earth, and. yet there are
those who would have it at a lower price.
The united* voice of labor has been raised
against the appointment of Mr. Powder
ly to a federal position, and I noticed
that he was promptly put Into the place.
(Mingled cheers and hisses.) From jus
tice of the peace to justice of the supreme
court of the United States, all the judi
cial powers of the United States are di
rected against the laborer. All the or-
ganized sources of society are against
the laborer and if labor expects emanci
pation, labor itself must do it."
"The time has not quite come to in
cite the population." said Mr. Debs,
shaking his fist vehemently. "I serve
notice on the plutocratic element of this
country that we are on the eve of another
meeting in Chicago which will be attend
ed by all branches of labor. That con
.veaition will take up these same ques
tions andi will Institute agitation and
keep it going until the public conscience
«nd the public heart is aroused. Then
will come such an uprising as the world
has never seen.
"I do not come to this convention to
exploit social democracy or any other
movement, There is something greater
In this movement than any one element
can manage—the emancipation of labor.
There Is no division here. Each man 1%
entitled to his own opinion and his right
to express it, each mar. to speak as be

you. I am a trades union, Ist and a social
unionist. (Tremendous applause.)
Whenever the trades unions desire Ij
do battle with their common enemy
they can count upon us to come to the
front and take- our places side by fid
with them and fight with them. Never
in my life have I been, more hopeful than
now. I am not gifted with great vis
ionary power, but I can see the begin
ning of the end. (Cheers.) This meet
ing 1» an inspiration. It will lead to
great results. This movement has tr
tamed tremendous impetus and will go
ahead with a rush. When the people are
ready, and that day is rot far off, my
friends, theTe will be a spontaneous up
rising, the supreme court will be abol
ished, congress dispersed, and the sacred
rights of American citizens and Ameri
can freedom will be enthroned. (Gre*at
"The time will come to Incite this pop
ulace. When this time comes you cat:
depend on me. (Cheers.) I will not stand
In the rear and ask you to go ahead.
I will be in front, and say to you, 'Come
on." (Rene-wed cheers.)
"I shrink from that bloodshed," and
Mr. Debs paused impressively, "but If
this Is necessary to pr< serve liberty and
our rights—in that event I will shed
the last drop of blood that courses
through my veins. (Outbreak of cheer

Notwithstanding the convention ear
ly in the morning had declined to act
on President Ratchford's resolution re
questing President McKinley to convene
congress for the purpose of defining the
authority of Judges in the matter of in
junctions, a resolution to that effect,
but authorizing the chairman of the con
vention, to ask Mr. McKinley to act In
that direction, introduced by M. D. Ry
an, the Illinois organizer, went through
with a whoop, and shortly before 7 oclock
the convention adjourned sine die.
COLUMBUS, August 31.—The coal'
strike is considered settled here. Evan
is to resume at 64 cents and work pending
arbitration. A decision Is looked for at
the conference of the Executive Commit
tee of the operators and President Ratch
ford any moment. The direct result will
be the opening of the mines and the re
sumption of work by all striking miners,
beginning next week.
PITTSBURG, Pa„ Aug. 31.—At the
Monongahela house, the headquarters of
the operators in this city, the news of
the expected settlement of the miners'
strike was at first received with incred
ulity. It was an unlooked-for thing, and
not one of the operators present coulci
believe the report until confirmative
news was obtained from Cleveland.
A meeting of all the operators in the
ctty will be held at the Monongahela
house tomorrow morning to take such
action as is necessary to have repre
sentatives at the conference to be held
by the officers and members of the ex
ecutive board of the Mine workers and
the executive board of the Cleveland
operators' combination either in Cleve
land or Columbus on Thursday.
In answer to a telegram tltis evening,
National President Ratchford tele
graphed the Post from St. Louis, saying:
"Information from Columbus correct."
Patrick Dolan, district president of
the United Mine Workers of America,
W. A. Murdock and James Gordon are
freed from the taint of contempt of court

charged the rule on them to show cause
why they should not be attached for
contempt for attempting to march at
McGovern last week.
Hydraulic Mining Filling Up the
Sacramento River
SACRAMENTO, Aug. 31.—The execu
tive commute of the State Anti-Debris
association held its regular monthly
meeting this morning. The reports of
Manager W. T. Phlpps and watchmen
under his charge were received. Sam
ples were submitted showing that in
some places small stones, in addition to
the slickens and matter carried in sus
pension, were transported by the action
of the water used in mining into the
main river channels. It was estimated
that from one mile alone 5000 cubic
yards of this material were deposited in
the river each day. The mines reported
on were referred to the attorney of the
association to commence proper legal
It appears from actual measurements
taken that the fill at Marysvllle In the
river has increased to a depth of a foot
within the past two years, gradually re
ceding upwards, showing the necessity
for retaining the material In the river
bed between De Guerra point and
Marysvi'.le. It is proposed this year to
raise the levees surrounding Marysvllle
to an average height of a foot and a
half. The county has levied a tax of 50
cents on each $100 worth of taxable
property for that purpose.

night engaged a room at the Greiner
lodging house in Ogdc-n, Utah, under the
name of Anderson and was found in bed
this morning unconscious from mor
phine poisoning, is known to the police
of this city and of Portland, Ore. At the
Russ house In this city he represented
himself asa commercial traveler and ir,
Portland he was a retired newspaper
man from Southern California. He first
brought himself to the notice of the au
thorities here by swearing to a com
plaint charging Mary Lansing with
grand larceny. A warrant was issued,
but she left the state. Farrell traced her
to Idaho and to Portland, Oro., where
he procured a license to marry her, but
she again escaped and he was served

Spoils the Pretty Cuban
Awful Tales of Beleased Prisoners.
Benewed Activity Among the
Associated Press Special Wire.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 31.—Consul-
General Lee's investigation Into the cir
cumstances attending the arrest of the
young Cuban girl, Evangellna Cisneros,
have resulted in sweeping away a great
deal of the romance that attached to her
case. He cabled the state department
today from Havana that the girl is not
the niece of the Marquis Santa Lucia, as
has been proclaimed!, but is the daughter
of a poor and respectable Cuban, named
Augustln Cossio. Her mother's name,
being Cisneros, was added, to her own,
according to the Spanish custom, making
her name Evangellna ossio y Cisneros.
Moreover, General Lee reports that this
girl Is not an only daughter, nor has she
been rais;-d In wealth and luxury, but is
one of five or six children.
NEW YORK, August 31.—The Times
says: General Weyler, in issuing a re
cent pronunciamento declaring that
three of the Cuban provinces were paci
fied, ordered that all pacilicos who had
been held in dutance as suspects should
be released. This order gave freedom
to thirty-four young Cubans who had
been prisoners among others for two and
a half years at the Spanish penal colony
of Ceuta on the coast of Morocco. They
were taken aorss the strait to Gibraltar
and left there penniless. Jose Prinelles
ot this city, provided with a subscription
fund, has Just returned here with fifteen
of the released pacificos, this being as
many as the fund enabled, him to pay
passage for. The remaining nineteen
are still in Gibraltar, some with friends,
and all getting food and shelter as best
they can.
There were over 400 men in the prison,
and many of them were sick, but if one
complained he was confined In a cell and
denied medical attendance, instead of
being sent to the hospital. The prison
they describe as being filthy. No at
tention was paid to sanitary conditions.
The cells were gloomy, damp apartments,
pungent with musty filth that encrusted
the floors. K>t the mortality in the prison
the paciticos knew nothing. They
thought of the place, even as they had
known it, with horror, and Mr. Prinelles
said they did not like to recall it. They
were satisfied to be free. Many of the
returning men do not yet know what the
fate of the members of their families has
been. Some have been killed In battle,
some imprisoned, and some tortured.
Valdez learned last night that a brother
had been killed In battle.
NEW YORK. August 31.—A special to
the Herald from Havana says: Augusto
Ariza, a Cuban, and' Fernando Paeads,
a Portuguese, were shot by policemen in
the streets of this city recently. They
had just arrived from Mexico.
No reason was given by the police for
the assassination, but it is thought that
General Weyler, who lives in constant
fear of being killed, suspected them of
being anarchists.
NEW YORK. August 81.—Tomas Es
trada Palma, the representative of the
Cuban provisional government, has re
ceived the> official list of Deputies to the
next Cuban Constitutional Assembly,
which is to meet on September 2d to elect
a new President. The term of the pres
ent incumbent expires on Thursday. The
Assembly will also revise the existing
provisional constitution, which was
adopted for a term of two years on Sep
tember 18, 1805. Each of the six army
corps sends four Deputies to the Assem
According to private advices which
have Just been received here, large bod
ies of Spanish troops are being massed
in Camaguay for the purpose of pre
venting, if possible, the meeting of the
Assembly. The insurgents, however,
have a large force ln the vicinity to pro
tect the convention.
WASHINGTON, August 31.—Recent
complaints lodged with the- State De
partment by Minister De Lome, coupled
with reports from government officers
and newspapers. Indicate that Cuban
sympathizers in this country are making
desperate efforts' to aid the struggling in
surgents with war material and men
when the dry season again begins.
Several filibustering expeditions are
known to be under way, and one, the
Fearless, with men and ammunition, has
eluded the vigilance of the Spanish offi
cers and American gunboats and is now
on her way from Tampa, Fla., for the
Cuban coast. Her departure was con
firmed by a dispatch received at the
Navy Department from the commanding
Officer of the Helena. Two other expedi
tions, the Dauntless and Dr. Brlggs', are
under surveillance by the gunboat Wil
mington and the revenue cutter on the
east coast of Florida.

Chicago Officers Confronted With a
Suicide Mystery
CHICAGO, Aug. 31.—A handsome
young woman about 25 years of age,
whose Identity is unknown, killed 1 her
self this morning in the Victoria hotel,
where she was a gueft. The suicide was
evidently carried out with the utmost
deliberation, as the young woman had
evidently slept ln the bed during the
night, taken a bath ln the morning, made
up the bed and then swallowing mor
phine lay down to die. She came to the
hotel Monday afternoon, registering as
Miss Blanche Wilson, New York city,
and said that she had been traveling and
was tired.
The suicide left a note requesting that
for her mother's sake no effort be made
to ascertain her identity.
On her finger was a plain gold band,
and on the inside was engraved "A. M.
E." In a bundle of four collars, two were
marked "L. H. G." one "A. D. A." and
one "L. M." A collar which she had been
wearing was marked similarly to one of
the collars In the package "L. H. G."
Late tonight it was ascertained that
yesterday the woman called'at the Le
land hotel andasked if Mr. Forsythe was
stopping there. Being told that there
was no guest ot that name she asked if
there was any mail for Martha Forsyth.
There was no mail and she, a short time
later, called at the Great Northern hotel,
where she made the same inquiries with
the same lack of success. She then went
to the Victoria, where she killed herself.
The Cause of a Quarrel Among the
BENICIA. Aug. 31.—The Episcopal
church vestrymen are very much sur
prised regarding the action of Bishop
Nicholson In relation to the removal of
the body of Rev. James Lloyd Beck.
When Dr. Beck, who was a pioneer of the
Episcopal church on this coast, died in
April, 1876. his wish was that he should
be buried in Benicia and his wishes were
complied with by t'hev estrymen. He is
buried under the chancel of St. Paul's
Episcopal church, a handsome building
costing over $8000, and there Is a marble
tabiet over his remains with an appro
priate eulogy which was chosen by his
wife. The vestrymen do not wish to have
the body removed and Bishop Graves of
the Platte, who is coadjutor with Bishop
I Wir.gtield, Bays that his body shall not
!be removed., as it was left as a legacy to
I this church and should be kept here.
