Abandon the Field to the
Single Taxers
Miners in Pennsylvania Will Return
to Work Today but Matters Are
Still Unsettled
Associated Press Special Wire.
CHICAGO, Sept. 26.—Notwithstanding
the announcement by Eugene V. Debs
that the convention of labor organiza
tions called for this city tomorrow ls
"off," the Social Democracy leader said
tonight that the conference would be
held and that he himself would call the
gathering to order.
The call of the present convention was
Issued on September 3d and signed by
T. J. Donnelly, J. R Sovereign, W. D.
Mahon, James O'Connell and E. V. Debs.
A meeting of that committee was to
have been held in Chicago Saturday, but
Debs was the only member present. He
accordingly announced that there would
be no convention. Since that time, the
Single Tax delegates have come on, and
it has been ordered to go ahead. A com
mittee waited on Debs this evening and
invited him to call the convention to or
der tomorrow.
He accepted and will deliver the open
ing address. It is probable the coal
strike and other trade union matters will
be left alone during the convention. The
question will be on the best means of
securing what Debs denominates "the
inalienable rights of every citizen under
the constitution."
Mr. Debs put it this way tonight: "I
am exceedingly pleased at what the Sin
gle Tax league has taken the conference
in hand 1 to accomplish, and I will A all
I can to aid in the work. I can be pres
ent only a portion of the day, however,
as I must leave for an eastern trip in
the Interests of the Social Democracy.
"I regret exceedingly that the Federa
tion of Labor has not given the confer
ence its countenance, as it would have
added greatly to the success of the ses
sion. Unfortunately the Idea is preva
lent that the object of the conference, as
originally designed, is solely In the inter
est of the mine workers. That would
have been practically a side issue. There
are matters ot weightier and more far
reaching moment to come before the
body. In my opinion it is as equally im
portant as the St. Louis convention."
Only about ten delegates have arrived
to attend the meeting.
HAZLETON, Pa., Sept 26.—Nothing
new developed today in the strike re
gion and the day passed quietly. All the
collieries will resume tomorrow, some for
the full week, some for part of the week.
General Gobin. and his staff rode to
Audenreid this afternoon and this even
ing the Ninth regiment gave a dress pa
rade. It is announced at headquarters
that the Fourth regiment, stationed at
Drifton, is to be withdrawn on Tuesday.
A conference will be held tomorrow to
decide on the withdrawal of other troops.
The failure of the coroner's Jury to ar
rive at a verdict is variously commented
upon. Another meeting of the jury is
to be held tomorrow evening, when.it is
expected that a verdict will be rendered.
A meeting of miners was held at Free
land today, at which several prominent
labor leaders were present. The meet
ing was held behind closed doors. It
ls known, however, that the miners are
being more thoroughly organized, so
that in case of another strike they will
have a leader and organization.
A gang of roughs broke into Squire
Robinson's office at Audenreid and de
molished, considerable furniture. Later
the residence of Mine Superintendent
Jones was stoned. Robinson refused
to issue a warrant for Foreman Jones'
arrest several weeks ago, and this is
supposed to be the cause of the raid on
his office.
(BOSTON, Sept. 26.—The international
convention of Brewery Workers, which
has been in session here for a week, fin
ished its business today and adjourned
to meet in Detroit in September, 1899.
The convention elected Daniel D. Ma
honey of Holyoke, Mass., and August
Priesterbach of St. Louis, delegates to
the Americar. Federation, of Labor. A
uniform financial system was adopted,
and it. was voted to levy a fine of not less
than $25 on all organizations affiliated
not adopting the new system within a
reasonable time.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 26—Employes
of the Chicago City Railway company,
operating the South Side lir.es, decided
today to extend their association to the
West and North Side lines. A series of
meetings will be held at once to secure
united action.
The committee appointed at these
meetings to confer with directors of the
South Side road, looking to the rein
statement of the discharged employes,
will request them through the press to
seek a settlement with the employes. A
strike ls not ir. prospect irside of a week,
unless, as it is rumored, Superintendent
Bowen discharges some of the leading
spirits at this morning's mas 9 meeting.
President Mahon of the street railway
men's organization, says they will en
deavor to avoid a strike, resorting to it
only as a last resort.
Cause of Slump in Americans—drain
LONDON, Sept. 26.—The feature of
the stock markets is the break in Ameri
cans, and this has been ascribed to the
Cuban difficulty and yellow fever, but
the fact that all Americans are alike
affected disproves this theory.
The break Is really caused by the re
strictions In bank loans to speculators,
who have been forced to sell holdings
on borrowed money, thus checking an
unnatural rise that might have ended
disastrously. Now buyers are expected
at the lower level, and these may soon

Manchester reports a rather mixed
but apparently fair business last week
in export yarns to India, Japan and the
Levant. Most of the yarn spinners will
be engaged to the end of the year. The
home demand, however, is small and
from hand to mouth. Prices are un
changed, or are 1 1-16 lower. The cloth
market ls still loudly complaining, but
here also there is considerable Indian
business, with large offers at prices not
acceptable. The home trade is slack,
though some of the South American
markets are better than they were a
week ago. As yet there is no certainty
as to the threatened strike. The best
opinion seems to think it improbable,
owing to the large divergence of inter
ests.. Probably a break in cotton would
prove more useful to the trade than a
strike or a lockout.
All the Politicians of Austria Are
Expected to Follow the Count's
Bad Example
LONDON, Sept. 26.—The Vienna corre
spondent of the Daily Mail says this
The duel between Count Badenl and
Dr. Wolff has caused 1 the wildest sensa
tion. It aroused scenes at the opening
of the reichsrath, when Count Badenl,
with arms crossed and head on his
breast, listened unmoved by the clamor
o£ the German party,
His attitude was most irritating. The
whole Left formed a threatening a"" 1 "*
around him, conspicuous among them
being Wolff, as he pressed forward and
thrust his fist into Count Badeni's face,
saying: "If this is your policy, it is mis
erable chicanery."
Some declare that Wolff called Badenl
a "Polish pig."
He was pulled back by his colleagues,
but continued uttering menaces.
Early Friday Count Badenl sent his
seconds to Dr. Wolff, who accepted the
challenge The premier sent a telegram
to the emperor asking permission to
fight, at the same time tendering his res
ignation. In reply he received not only
permission to fight, but also the imperial
approval. He made his will, after which
he spent the evening at the Jockey club
and a pleasure resort. His wifeand fam
ily knew nothing about the affair until it
was over.
The combatants met at the military
riding school. The condltlonsof the duel
were three shots at twenty-five paces.
At the first discharge the premier's ball

Count Badenl is conducting affairs a 6

has set the example, with the emperor's
approval, there will be a serious epi

points out that Count Badenl ls liable to
imprisonment from one to five years.

SACRAMENTO, Sept. 26.—The Cap
ital City wheelmen added another plume
to the club's headgear today. The race
meet held on the Oak park track was a
splendid success. The attendance was
not as great as at the last races, owing
chiefly to the prevalence of a bri9k
breeze, which It was known would ren
der record breaking almost an impossi
bility, and people want to see record
riding. |
As it was there was upward of a thou
sand people, ard they witnessed some
of the best racing they had ever seen.
Despite the strong wind there was
some swift riding done, and above all,
there were exciting finishes in nearly
every heat. In the one-third mile pro
fessional scratch race, Vaughn of San
Diego, made a new coast record in. the
first heat—42 3-5 seconds— but thi9was
lowered, by Downing of San Jose, in the
next heat, who made it in 42 seconds
In the California Associated Cycling
Clubs' professional handicap race,
George Sharick of Tacoma, Wash., one
of tbe scratch men, made it in. 2:07 3-5,
In the face of a breeze that raised a
cloud of dust which at times almost ob
scured the riders.
It is worthy of note that in the Ana!
heat of the one-third mile professional
race those qualified to start represented
Tacoma, San Jose, San Francisco and
San Diego, showing from what geo
graphical extremes riders had been at
tracted to the meet.
The pacemaking in the various heats
(where pacing was required) was by
Mott, Wing, Russ, Sharick, Jones, El
ford and Deacon. For this work the
pacemakers were allowed to qualify for
the finals in various events regardless
of their positions at the finish.
There were but two falls during the
afternoon. In the final of the half mile
amateur scratch event, Russ and
Leitch collided on the back stretch and
the former fell. He received some
bruises and the front wheel of his ma
chine was badly broken. In the final of
the two mile amateur handicap, Bird

yards of the fln.ish and he received a
hard fall but was not injured.

day of the baseball year is awaited by
thousands of local "fans" with prayers

They are a confident lot of rooters and

The Boston team themselves, if they

HAWESVILLE, Ky„ Sept. 26.—1n the
broad open glare ot a Sunday evening,
in the midst of a revival, not a mask to
be seen, and in the presence of 800 in
furiated people, Raymond Bushrod', a
negro, this evening at 5 oclock was made
,to pay the penalty of his assault on 14
--year-old Maggie Roberts. He was swung
from a tree in the court house yard
Bushrod yesterday afternoon, three
miles below town, encountered Maggie
Roberts, daughter of Ben Roberts, a
prominent farmer. He not only brutally
assaulted the girl, but beat her with an
iron coupling pin and left her on the
railroad grade to die. The news of the
outrage spread and searching parties
were sent in every direction. He was
captured in hiding at Falcon, four mile 9
below the scene of the crime by four of
the posse. He was brought quietly to
Hawesville and surrendered to the Jailer
while the town was deserted searching
for him. In the meantime the officers
got wind of a mob, and h5 was secretly
guarded In the graveyard on the hill
until morning, when he was again
locked up.
But the people were determined. Early
they came—afoot, on horseback, in wag
ons and on the trains. They were Impa
tient for darkness to cover the ground.
It was rumored that militia would' ar
rive at 4:30 from Owensboro for his pro
tection. The angry crowd would not
stand this, and they placed trusty senti
nels on the hills overlooking town to give
a signal if the train bore such protec
tion. They failed to come, but at this
time the officers thought It opportune
play a ruse, and the mob, now furious,
were led to believe that the prisoner had
escaped from behind, and a hot pursuit
followed, The trail was followed only
a square, when the attempt to spirit
Bushrod over the hills and out of town
was discovered. A few well-chosen
guards, however, staid at the Jail, and as
he was brought out the mob formed In
front of the officers and they were forced
to yield. The excitement at this time
was intense. Promptly at 6 oclock the
march to the court house square was
begun. Halting in front of a great
poplar, with limbs and twigs overhang
ing the most public street in town, a
selection was made. Some delay was
caused by want of a rope, but soon a
new half-inch plow line wa9 furnished,
&P& e.Yery.thjßK..was in readiness.for the
In the meantime Bushrod was given
an opportunity for confession and
prayer. His confession was complete.
He said he was guilty, and that this was
the third offense, one successful effort
having been made upon his 60-year-old
aunt. After offering up his last sup
plication, a long and fervent prayer,
the signal to haul away was given, and
with pinioned armsand legs he was dan
gled between brick and tree. The ap
plause as he went up was deafening.
In about four minutes he was pro
nounced dead, and Coroner Mitchell,
claiming the body, cut It down and sum
moned a Jury, whose verdict was that
Bushrod came to his death at the hands
of unknown parties.
After the lynching the mob's leader
made a little talk. He pointed to the
corpse and said: "Here Is the protection
we offer our wives and daughters."
Bushrod was drunk when he com
mitted the assault.
PORTLAND, Ore., Sept 26.—Two
men giving the names of Charles Jackson
and George Williams were arrested In
this city this afternoon charged with
holding up the O. R. & N. Co. train near
Clarnie, seven miles from this city, last
night. Engineer Evans and Fireman
Wilkes, who were on the engine, posi
tively identified the two men. as the par
ties who led them down the track after
the hold-up.
While the men arrested appear to be
veterans In the business, their plans last
night were carried, out In a most bung
ling manner. The sum total of their
haul was $16 in cash and a watch, which
they took from the engineer and fire
man. The clue which led to the arrest
of the highwaymen was furnished by a
woman, Mrs. Hamilton, who keeps a
lodging house at 83 Seventh street, this
city. On Wednesday two strangers
came to her house and engaged!lodgings.
While arranging the room after the
men had gone out Mrs. Hamilton no
ticed two shotguns, two revolvers and
a square box marked "Beware, handle
with care."
She thought nothing of the matter un
last evening about 5 o'clock, when, the
two men drove up to the house in a bug
gy. Williams, the younger of the
two, got out and went into the house
and came back with the guns. Another
trip was made, and this time he carried
out the square box on which the warn
ing was written, and carefully arranged
it in the buggy.
When Mrs. Hamilton read In this
morning's paper that a train had been
held up just outside the city limits last
night she associated the movements of
her two lodgers with the affair, and no
tified the chief of police of the action of
her two roomers, and said they were in.
their rooms.
Chief Barry, with four men, went to
the house about 2 o'clock this afternoon.
Detective Joseph Reilly was sent into
the house while the remainder of the
force stood guard on the sidewalk. As
soon as the robbers observed Reilly,
Williams jumped for his revolver, but
the detective was too quick for him, and
covered each men with a revolver.
Chief Barry and his force then rushed
in and handcuffed the men and hurried
them away to tbe city jail.
In searching for evidence near the
scene of the hold-up, the police found
fifteen sticks of dynamite, which they
evidently intended to use In blowing
i open the safe of the express car. Tbe
police are of the opinion that there were
more Its the gang, but that some of them
failed to reach the appointed place In
time, which caused, their plans to mis

ing rye crop is indicated by final returns
to the American Agriculturist. Instead
of some 28,000,000 bushels expected from
earlier indications, the crop of the

--000,000 bushels, 1,000,000 more than last
year, and 2,000,000 bushels less than In
1895 and 1894. The Increase Is mainly In
Pennsylvania. The latest European crop
