Operators Want Firemen and En
gineers to Return to
Their Places
KANSAS CITY, July 7—Negotia
tions between the coal operators and
the coal miners of the southwest were
declared off "temporarily by the opera
tors today because Alexander Howatt,
representing the miners In Kansas, or
dered the firemen and engineers at tho
mines in his district to quit work in
Bympathy with the miners.
The operators contend that this ac
tion was a violation of a contract that
provides that when the miners have
nutt work pending the renewal of a
wage contract, the engineers and fire
men at the mines must remain at work
to keep the mines free from water.
Ono hundred and fifty operators to
day decided that all negotiations with
the miners would be discontinued un
til the engineers and firemen at the
Kansas mines returned to work.

that the cost of living has Increased to
such an extent as to necessitate in
creased wages.

tution of Mrs. Young's name for that
of Mr. Snyder In the report of the
committee on nominations.
The campaign had been In progress
for nearly a week, starting with tho
advent last Friday of the boom for
Mrs. Young.
The constitution of the association
provides for the selection of a board
of governors by the delegate* tut also
provides for the presentation of a
ticket by a nominating committee.
The members of the committee are
selected by states and Monday after
the stadium meeting at which Presi
dent Taft spoke, all the states cau
cused and chose members of that com
mittee. The nomination committee
met today In Trinity chapel for the
deciding 1 on a candidate with the an
nual meeting of the association fol
lowing at noon in the new Old South
In the main work of the convention
special attention was paid to children
and teaching in the lower schools to
day. Klndergarteft work, the various
branches of child study, music and
physical education were discussed by
well known authorities. The officers
of the association gave up all hope
today of obtaining the presence of for

the question of substituting the minor

This action brought the contest direct
ly between Mrs. Young and Mr. Snyder,
each of whom had a determined fol
lowing among the delegates.
Particular attention was paid to the
education of the child in the addresses
at today's meetings. In the afternoon
state teachers' associations and those
interested in school gardens and re
ligious training also held sessions.
The convention will close tomorrow
A part of the resolutions of the as
sociation adopted at the general busi
ness meeting 1 follows:
"The National Educational association
reaffirms its unalterable opposition to
any division of the public school funds
among private or sectarian schools and
believes appropriations from the fed
oral or state treasuries in support of
private educational Institutions are In
direct contravention of the fundamen
tal principles upon which our system
of American public school education
has been founded and has prospered."
The directors decided unanimously to
hold the next convention in San Fran
cisco in 1911. The claims of San Fran
cisco were eloquently presented by Al
fred Koncovleri. superintendent of
schools of San Francisco.

The new steamer was the Beaver on
Its first run to this port under the new
five day schedule Just Inaugurated by
the San Francisco & Portland Steam
ship company. On its last trip up the
coast the President and the Beaver
raced for several hours between San
Francisco and Astoria. When the Bea
ver left the President behind Captain
Cousins sent a wireless message of
congratulation to Captain Kidsen on
his victory- Their schedules will not
permit another race for a year;
The Beaver, Bear and Rose City will
alternate between here and Portland on
a five-day schedule. The Beaver and
Bear ore alike and were built at New
port News for service on this coast.
They are said to be the finest passenger
steamers In the coastwise trade. Each
Is 380 feet long, 4500 tons burden and
has a breadth of 47 feet and depth of
26 feet. They cost about $750,000 each.
They are modeled after the transpa
cfic liners Korea and Mongolia of the
Pacific Mail line.
The ships have passenger accommo
dations for 300 first class and 200 sec
onnd class passengers. Instead of hav
ing the smoking rooms located In the
stern, as i 3 usual in the older types
of steamers, the new steamers ijave
them amidships. Another attractive
feature is the dining room with twelve
small tables affording private service
to families and parties in addition to
the large tables. The music room and
saloons are also attractive, all being
finished in mahogany, inlaid with
The new steamers will make no
call between here and Portland other
than San Francisco and Astoria. The
schedule between here and San Fran

unequaled by any other steamers ex
cept the President and Governor. They
will leave here at 10. a. m. and land
passengers In San Francisco at 9
o'clock the following morning.
The new ships have triple expansion
engines of 6000-horse power each and
single screws. Each has six boilers,
which were converted into oil burners
immediately after their arrival from
the Atlantic coast a few months ago.
On the return from Portland the Beav
er made an average speed of 17.2 knots,
breaking the record between Astoria
and San Francisco. As the steamer
had a full load of freight, this is con
sidered a remarkable run. On the re
mainder of the voyage a record equally
as good would probably have been
made had the steamer not been delayed
two hours last night by a heavy tog
that made slow speed necessary.
The new steamers will dock at the
foot of Tenth street temporarily until
the Southern Pacific wharf above
Eighth street is straightened to make
room for a berth for the new line.
When the Heaver forked today there
were a number of prominent railway
and Steamship men there. The party
included T. A. Graham, general pas
senger and freight agent oi the South
ern Pacific; C. J. Lehman, manager of
the Independent Steamship company,
and G. L. Blair, general freight agent
for the new line. A. G. D. Kerrell,
general passenger agent of the line,
was a passenger on the steamer,
Mr. Blair spent much time investi
gating conditions in Southern Cali
fornia before he made the recom
mendation that the service be extend

is the nominal head yt the company he
is also manager of the Pacific Mall
line and much of the responsibility of
the management of the San Francisco
and Portland line *alls to Mr. Blair.
He said today that there were bright
prospects for a big business for the
new steamers.
The Beaver brought nearly 100 pas
sengers and 600 tons of freight. Much
of this was paper from the mills on
the Willamette river for the Los An

San Diego will be reshipped by other
steamers from here.

Western Union Discontinues Han
dling Stock Telegrams
in Many Cities
[Associated Press]
NEW YORK, July 7.—Without ex
planation and without warning, the
Western Union Telegraph company dis
continued its service to stock brokers
today in ten cities of this state and
Pennsylvania. The cities affected are
Pittsburg and Johnstown, Pa.; Syra
cuse, Ithaca. Rome, Utica, Cilovers
ville. Auburn, Watertown and Cort
land of this state.
Executive officers of the company
took the stand today that under advice
of counsel they could not discuss the
company's policy. Officers of the New
York stock exchange denied that the
discontinuance of service was m any
way instigated by them or that they
had any knowledge of it. Officers of
the Consolidated stock exchange, the
"little board," could not be found to
night. There were many subterranean
rumors that the company was acting
on the advice of some one in Washing
ton supposed to be close to the atti
tude of the attorney general's office,
but 'these could not be confirmed.
Hitherto the Western Union has al
ways taken the stand, as a common
carrier it had no right to refuse any
business offered it, providing such
business was couched in decent lan
guage. In fact, the company argued
earnestly that any attempt by it to

customers would be Inquisitorial ami

Will Aid Indiana Progressive Who
Voted with Insurgents and
Denounced Tariff
Politicians Swarm to Sagamore
Hill with Radicals Most
in Evidence
[Associated Press]
OYSTKR BAY. July "7.—Albert J.
Beverldge, United States senator from
Indiana and one of tho most prom
inent and consistent of the "progres
slve" Republicans, came down from
Sagamore Hill this afternoon -with a
promise from Theodore Roosevelt to
deliver a campaign speech In his favor
in his fight for re-election to the sen
ate. Mr. Beverldge departed contented
and smiling, but he left it for the
colonel to make the announcement of
the proposed campaign speech In tho
senator's behalf. Thia 13 what Mr.
Roosevelt said:
"Mr. Foulke and Mr. Swift came to
Sagamore Hill last night and passed
the night here. They came to request
me to go to Indiana anu speak in be
half of Senator Beverldge. I prom
ised thorn I would."
He added he had agreed today to
make only one speech for the senator,
and as far as now known he will
make only one.
The time and place has not been
Those who followed the political
conferences at Oyster Bay since Theo
dore. Roosevelt's return share the be
lief that he has been feeling his way
cautiously In his attitude toward the
administration and the insurgents, but
today's incidents are considered the
most important yet developed. Sen
ator Beveridge is making his flfiht for
re-election as an insurgent. THe is
opposed by John W. Kern,- who ran
with Bryan in the last campaign.
In his light for senator he is placing
himself squarely against President.
Taft on the tariff measure. The law
which the president nas defended as
the best tariff measu»«, ever enacted is
denounced by Senator Beveridge, and
the same Republican state convention
that indorsed Btveridge for another
term virtually repudiated the law. In
the senate Beveridge fought the bill to
the last and then voted against it.
It is pointed out, however, that
with this exception President Taft and
the ienator from Indiana have been
pulli/ig together on administration
policies. Thero has been no break be
tween them. The president entrusted
to the senator the conduct of two ad
ministration measures at the last ses
sion of congress—the statehood bill
and the Alaska government bill. And
although the senator -worked faithfully
with the insurgent band in the senate
and had a hand in the alteration of
President Taft's railroad bill, he sup
ported the administration regularly in
the last session when the votes were
Sagamore Hill was fairly swarming
all day with men of various political
persuasions. They cnuie by train and
by automobiles. They talked politics
all day long, but as they left town
they were unanimously reticent when
asked to tell what they knew. Con
sequently Oyster Bay la enveloped in
an atmosphere of deep mystery.
There were three Indlanans among
the visitors. Besides Senator Bever
idge they were William Dudley Foulke
and Lucius B. Swift of Indianapolis.
From New Hampshire came Winston
Churchill, the novelist; John Bass,
war correspondent, 'tmd his brother,
Robert R. Bass, who 13 a candidate
for the Republican nomination for
New York state was represented, by
Representative Hamilton Fish and
James R. Sheffield.
From Montana there was United
States Senator Thomas H. Carter,
Colonel Roosevelt appeared well
pleased with the day's work of talking
politics, which began almost as soon
as lie. was up and lastea well through
the afternoon.
To interviewers, however, he would
say little concerning the conference ex
cept that he had promised to make one
speech for Mr. Beveridg-e. Thus those
win) sought to interpret the day as a
general Insurgent rally looking toward
