CLEVELAND, 0., June 4.— ln a riot
that took place early this morning at
Steubenvllle, 0., between striking min
ors numbering 400 and forty guards,
fifteen of the latter were shot.
jj It Is not known how many were killed,
as the rest of the guards are in the
mines and are afraid to come out to re
move the dead or attend the wounded.
Sheriff Vorhls immediately put him
self In communication with the state
authorities at Columbus In an effort to
get the militia called out If ho finds
that he is unable to cope with the
situation.
He has been promised state troops
if he makes a demand for them. The
sheriff also called on H. K. Wlllard,
general manuger and secretary of the
United States Coal company, which
owns and operates the mines at Plum
Run, the scene of the rioting, and ad
vised him of what had taken place.
Reports here are that the shooting
grew out of an nttempt of the com
pany to Import non-union men under
cover of darkness. The strikers had
pickets on duty all night and when they
discovered the train bringing in the
"scabs" they aroused the whole neigh
borhood and sought to find nnd induce
th« incomers "to refuse to go to work.
The guards tried to get possession of
tho strike breakers by force and drew
their guns. This act inflamed the
strikers, many of whom were armed.
The guards, to frighten the strikers,
fired into the nlr, but the miners; In
stead of . twittering, returned - the fire
and made'a concerted attack.
...The battle waged for fifteen minutes,
hundreds of shots being fired.
The guards were routed , and with
drew to the mines for protection. There
they have remained. A hundred extra
guards are being rushed to the scene.

MORALES' FATHER
SPEAKS OF SON
Anarchist Who Attempted to Kill King
and Queen Commits Suicide
at Terre de Joan
Arterot
By Associated T'r«»s. .■*' '. : ,
BARCELONA, Julie 3.— Senor Mo
rales, father of the anarchist who at
tempted to kill King Alfonso and Queen
Victoria and who committed suicide at
Terro de Joan Arteros Saturday night,
wns seen at Barcelona today.
He is tho proprietor of a prosperous
factory there. He has a strong In
dividuality nnd is highly respected.
Answering the questions of an inspec
tor of police concerning his son, he
said:
"I wish to know nothing of this In
famous creature formerly bearing my
name. I have not considered him as
my son since I drove him from my
house in March.
"The reason for his being cast out
was purely domestic, and I beg to be
excused from discussing It. I do not
know whether he was connected with
the attempt on the lives of the king and
queen, as I have considered him read
since he wns cast out March 1."
Brother Gives Details
Morales' brother Facundo gave these
details concerning the dead man:
"At an early ago he was sent to the
mercantile centers of Germany and
France, where he became an expert In
textile production, but his natural bent
was chemistry, and he returned to his
home with a library of German and
French works on chemistry.
"His morose disposition led to family
troubles which culminated In his father
disowning him. Then Morales trans
lated German chemical- books, for the
Ecole Modern at Barcelona. ' ■ .■. ■ • ■
"Ho lived quietly In a boarding house
and had a few acquaintances. He left
Barcelona recently, saying that he
would-be .gone a long time."
DESCRIBES SUICIDE Or MORALES
Guard Seeks to Detain Him and Is
Himself Shot Dead
By Associated Press.
MADRID, June 3.— The capture and
suicide Saturday night at- Torrejon de
Ardos of Manuel 'Morales, the chief
suspect of the bomb outrage against
King Alfonso nnd Queen Victoria, adds
another dramatic chapter to the events
surrounding the royal wedding.
Morales "was recognized in the little
town of Torrejon de Ardos, midway
between Madrid and Alcala.
A guard sought to detain him, but
Morales, drawing a revolver, shot the
guard dead.
Then he turned to flee, but a number
of the Inhabitants of tho town were
upon him, and turning the revolver
upon himself, he sent a shot In the
region of ■ his heart, expiring a few
minutes later.
Senor Cuesta, proprietor of the hotel
from the balcony of which Morales
threw the bomb, viewed the body this
morning and completely identified It as
that of his recent guest.
It was 8 o'clock Saturday evening
when Morales, disguised in the garb of
a workmgman, entered the station at
Torrejon de Ardos. i He asked the time
the next train would depart for Barce
lona. He then sought food In a nearby
shop. His Catalonlan accent at first
attracted attention to him.
A private watchman from a large
neighboring estate chanced to be pres
ent and he noticed the facial resem
blance.
ALL ANARCHISTS MUST LEAVE
England Will Not Harbor Them in
the Future
By Associated Press.
LONDON, June 3.— Tho desperate at
tempt on the lives of King Alfonso and
Queen Victoria brings home to Great
Britain the question of harboring an
archists.
It Is expected upon the reassembling
of parliament after the Whitsuntide
recess an effort will lie made to pass a
law excluding anarchists from Great
Britain. The effect of the agitation is
problematical. «
Much depends on the result of the In
vestigation being made at Scotland
Yard. The authorities are Inclined In
doubt that the Madrid plot originated
here. Tho evidence so fur does not war
rant full acceptance of the claim.
The general Idea Is that judgment
must be suspended pending the dis
closure of details of the conspiracy.

PLAN INCLINE AT
GRAND CANYON
MAKES ASCENTS EASY AND
ECONOMICAL
Eastern Capitalists Project Cog Line
or Elevator at Wonder Spot
Which Will Bean Engin.
eerlng Surprise
Humor has It that eastern capitalists
ore considering the construction of an
enormous elevator or incline from the
top of the Grund canyon to the river's
edge, a distance which 'will be much
over 6000 feet.
It is known that several eastern capi
talists who may be Interested In such a
project are at present In Los Angeles.
It Is also known that members of this
party ' will leave this city within the
next few days for the Grand canyon,
where they will look over tho ground
and consult with prominent engineers
who are en route from tho east.
The location of the rumored proposed
elevator la snld to be In the vicinity
of the El Tovar hotel at the Grand
canyon.
If the elevator is built, which local
engineers say Is feasible, it will be a
money making proposition' and an en
gineering wonder, say railroad and
hotel
At present tourists who visit the
canyon are compelled to go either .by
donkeys or horseback to- the top of
the canyon to obtuln the views of the
canyon whoso grandeur is known in
the most distant parts of the world.
Saving of Tourists
A great saving In expense to tourists
would bo realized by the construction
of such 'an elevator or incline railway
Bystem, say local railroad officials. At
present the expense to the average
tourist to sco the Grand canyon and to
make the trail to the river's edge Is
about $12. With the elevator or Incline
railway the expense; it is said, will be
lowered to about $3 or $4, making it
possible for thousands of more tourlsto
to visit the Grand canyoni every year.
In the construction of such an Incline
railway the geology of the locality will
play one of the most conspicuous parts.
As many as seven different strata must
be passed over by tho rnllway and the
resistance of these seven different
layers' against tho action of the natural
elements varies vastly. • • •
A feature of such . a construction Is
that the grentest weight will fall to the
weakest stratum— the limestone which,
forms: the. top layer." of tho canyon.
Following tho x limestone and de
scending to the bottom . of . the canyon
the following geological strata are en
countered: Cross-bedded sandstone, red
sandstone, blue itmestcne, green, shales.,
"tonto" sandstone and granite. Per
pendicularly there are 800 feet of lime
stone, j 800 feet of cross-bedded sand
stone, ' 1200 feet of red sandstone, 550
feet of blue limestone, 700 feet of green
shales. 150 feet of "tonto" sandstone
and 1300 feet of granite. . •
Anchorage a Problem
The anchoring of an Incline railroad
to such\ geological formations will call
into play the knowledge of the best
geologists nnd the experience of the
best engineers In the construction of In
cline railways.
What the outcome of the rumored
project will be Is a matter of future
development, say men who have heard
of the , possible construction of an in
cline railway at the Grand canyon. But
the opinion of railroad,, men and en
gineers In Los Angeles is that it would
lie one of the most wonderful Incline
railways in the world.

MISS LAWTON TO
LEAVE BELASCO'S
GREENROOM RUMORS fOINT
TO A MISUNDERSTANDING
Trouble Seems to Have Started Over
Role In Next -Week's Show,
"Girl I Left Behind
I Me"
Tho Belanco may lose Its leading
woman.
Because of a misunderstanding Miss
Kugenla Thais Lawton nnd the man
agement have reached the pnrtlng of
the ways, It Is feared, though friends
are endeavoring to patch up a truce
and may succeed by nightfall.
Miss Lawton Is Just back from a va
cation trip and has Just completed a
successful week's appearance In "Rip
Van Wlnklo" as Gretchen. Sho had
consented to take the role, breaking her
vacntlon period with the understanding
that she wns not to go on again at
present. She had settled down near
Snnta Monica to enjoy her stay on
tho beach.
Why the Differences
This week, beginning tonight, the
fnrce "June" is to be given at the
Belnsco. Juliet Crosby was cast for
the leading role in order to yield to
Miss Lawton's desire for further rest.
For next week, however, "The Girl I
Left Behind Me" is billed and the stage
manager wished particularly to have
Miss Lawton cast In a certain role.
Over this it appears the present mis
understanding has arisen.
Neither Miss Lawton nor the man
agement will state whether the part
was unsatisfactory or whether the Idea
of returning to the footlights so soon
was objectionable.
From greenroom gossip It appears,
however, that Manager John H. Black
wood was called upon to ' decide, the
controversy, and he ruled that unless
Miss Lawton did as directed by the
stage manager she would have to
give way to another leading woman.
Such was the situation at midnight
last night, from all accounts, though
tHere are many in and out of the com
pany who look for an adjustment of the
little controversy.
Only, recently Joseph Galbralth re
tired as leading man at the Belasco
after a spat with Stage Manager George
Barnum, and his successor, the popular
Walling, will step Into his shoes.
BIG SCHOONER REACHES PORT

. Voyage \
By Associated Press.
NEW YORK. June 3.— The four
masted schooner Zealandia arrived to
day from San Francisco after an event
ful passage. -
The Zealandia was chartered to tow
the big side wheel steamer Olympla to
this port. She sailed from San Fran
cisco on January 31 with her tow. |
All went/ well until March -3, while.
both ships were anchored In Possession
bay (Punta Arenas).
During the day a heavy . southwest
gale sprang -up. The Olympla parted
her anchors and drifted ashore well up
on the beach, which is very long and
shallow. An attempt was made to float
the steamboat, which proved successful,
but before getting her Into deep water
she broke adrift and grounded again.
She lies in an easy position and Cap
tain Roberts has every hope, of her
being ultimately floated. !
Her crew of six men were transferred
to the Zealandia ,and she proceeded to
this port after a" passage of 123 days
and 17 hours from San Francisco.
AERONAUT HAS
'NARROW ESCAPE
FIGHTS FOR HIS LIFE WHILE
ABOVE THE CLOUDS
After Regaining Consciousness His
First Words Were: "I'll Have to
Put a Truss Under That
Carriage"
Special to Th« Herald.
CLEVELAND, June 3.-After battling
valiantly for his life high in the air,
Lincoln J. Beaehey, a Toledo aeronaut,
crashed to earth with his airship and
was pulled unconscious from the wreck
of tho machine.
Thousands of persons saw the acci
dent at Luna park. The triangular
spruce frame work carrying the motive
power collapsed and the big propeller
cut into the balloon like a buzz saw,
letting out hydrogen gas and permitting
the craft to shoot to earth like a bullet.
Beaehey threw oft ballast and made
frantic efforts to check his downward
flight, but in vain. "The aeronaut fell
Into an open field and when friends
arrived a few minutes later they
dragged his limp and senseless body
from the wreck. He was not seriously
hurt and quickly revived.
"I'll put a truss under that carriage
and she'll work all right when i" try
her again," wan Beachey's philosophical
assertion made In a shame faced sort of
way. "Both Knabenshue and I thought
the carriage would stand the racket,
but' l've changed my mind. It has to
be built more strongly next time."

'MADE' GROUND
IS DANGEROUS
Report of State Earthquake Invettl.
gating Commission Gives Many
Interesting Facts Concern.
Ing Recent .Temblor
By Associated Prens.
SACRAMENTO. June 3.-The pre
liminary report of the state earthquake
Investigating commission was received
this afternoon at the office, of Governor
Pardee. "
It Is submitted by Professor A. C.
.Lawgon of the University of California,
chairman of the commission, and com
prises twenty pages. Under the head-
Ing of results the report says:
"One of the remarkable features of
the coast ranges of California is a line
of peculiar greomorphlc construction
which extends obliquely across the en
tire width of the mountainous' belt
from Mendoclno county to Riverside
county.
"The surface feature along this line
has been formed by a dislocation of the
earth's crust, or a series of dislocations
In times past, with a differential move
ment of the parts on either side of the
plane of rupture."
G.ves Detailed Description -
The report gives a detailed descrip
tion of recognized lines of abrupt
changes due to similar phenomena,
known as Bcraps, traversing, with sev
eral breaks, the territory . from Point
Arena to Mount Pinos, In "Ventura
county, , a distance of 375 miles, and
passing outside of Golden Gate strait
above Bollnas across the shore ' I line
eight miles south of the Cliff house. .
. ■ The movements' that produced . the
line are attributed to. separate earth
quakes extending back Into the Quat
ernary period.
In general terms, the cause of these
movements is attributed to the theory
that stresses are generated in the
earth's crust and accumulate until they
exceed the strength of the rocks com
posing the crust and find relief In a
sudden rupture. ■ J
The earthquake of April 18 is said to
have been due -to one of these move
ments, and the extent of the rift is de
scribed as extending from the vicinity
of Point Arena to the neighborhood
of San Juan, Benlto county, a distance
of 185 miles.
Furrow in Surface Shown
The evidence of the rupture and the
differential movement is clearly and
unequlvocably defined In a continuous
furrow in the surface soil several feet
wide. All fences, stream courses, pipe
lines and dams crossed by the line are
dislocated from six to twenty feet.
The average horizontal displacement is
twenty feet. In Sonoma and Mendocino
counties there is a different I vertical
movement not exceeding four feet.
In consequence of the movement it
is probable that the latitudes and longi
tudes of all points In the coast range
have been permanently changed a few
feet.
From the purely scientific point of
view the earthquake Is one of the most
Interesting on record and Is In some re
spects unique.
A complete study of the phenomena
will undoubtedly contribute ereatly
not only to our knowledge of the evo
lution of the earth's crust, but also to
our knowledge of the means oZ mini
mizing the calamities which arise from
tho destruction of buildings and water
pipes when such shocks occur In the
future.
Lesson a Valuable One
Certain of the studies which have
this object in view fall within the
province of the structural engineer and
architect and they have already formu
lated many suggestions dealing: with
principles and materials of constructing
which will be of very great value In
the future construction of buildings,
not only in San Francisco but in all
parts of the country which are subject
to earthquake shocks.
One of the remarkable features of the
coatit ranges California Is a line of
peculiar gedmorphlc construction which
extends across the entire width of
the mountainous belt from Mendoclno
county to Riverside county.
It Is recommended that costly public
buildings be erected on slopes upon
which Bound rock foundations may be
reached. The state university building
la said to have escaped greater damage
on this account and it Is affirmed that
many school buildings were so rtimsily
constructed ' as to be unable to with
stand the shock.
Made Ground Dangerous
Modern class of structures appear
to have been relatively passive, • while
the "made" ground In their vicinity wan
profoundly disturbed. The weak points
in frame buildings were the faulty un
derpinning, lack -of | bracing I and the
chimneys. Pipe lines on low, ■ swampy
ground are In greater danger of | de
struction than those on high ground
underlaid by rock. .
In San Francisco the most ' violent
destruction -of buildings was on made
ground, which behaved as jelly In a
bowl.
The minor shocks < continued for
many days after April 18, rand In this
respect the earthquake accords in be
havior with other earthquakes in '. the
past.
The minor shocks, which succeeded
the main one, are . interpreted gener
ally as due to subordinate adjustments
of the earth's crust in the tendency to
reach equilibrium after the first move
