At their first trial, had last month, the jury disagreed. John J. Ryan was on the stand for four hours. His testimony was to the same effect as at the previous trial.

BOSTON, Nov. 16.— Two spirited de bates enlivened what would otherwise have been a dull session at the conven tion of the American Federation of La bor at Faneuil Hall to-day. The first was upon the question of whether the federation should grant a charter to the insurance agents of the country, and after a somewhat acrimonious dis cussion the matter was referred to the ( executive council. This was regarded i by the delegates as a defeat of the j l>lan to organize and charter insurance | r. gents. The second debate was upon the sub- ' Sect of industrial depression. It was called forth by the report of the com mittee on the president's report, in dorsing the statement of President (.Jumpers that a period of industrial de pression was coming. Several delegates expressed their opinion that no depres- Fion was nrobable, but the Socialist delegates insisted that the president's forecast was true. They urged as a ' ;»>sEible preventive not only organiza tion on trades union lines but also the formation of a political organization by labor workers. , BOSTON. »W, 15.— Consideration of resolutions was resumed to-day by the convention of the American Federation «<f Labor. The proposition to charter the Insurance agents of the country a3 nn affiliated body was met by opposl " tion on the ground that Insurance toqr-nts were not wage earners and be cause of the fear that the admission of agents to membership might result in .*n attempt to force insurance upon pome of the members. President Gompers, who took the floor, expressed the belief that why many unions were not well organized was that they paid too much attention to "this curse of insurance, which we ere askr-d to indorse." He declared that the trade union In surance v.as what the union officials should direct their attention to and for that r<»aso» alone he did not favor granting charters to insurance men. The matter was finally referred. to the committee of the executive council. STRIKER KILLS AN OFFICER. Drunken Man Uses Revolver When Threatened With Arrest. TRINIDAD, Colo., Nov. 1G.— Deputy- Sheriff "John Hindman was shot at Black Diamond, a Victor Fuel Company coal camp, thirty miles south of Trini dad, by a striker named Gouldollf, and died from his wound this afternoon. Gouldolif, who is said to have been un der'the. influence of liquor, drew a re volver and shot the officer when threat ened with arrest. DENVER, Nov. 16.— Contrary to the expectation that prevailed on Saturday, coal mining was not resumed In the Northern Colorado coal field, the opera tors' proposition to concede a nine-hour day pending the result of the strike in Southern Colorado having been rejected by the miners. Information from the southern field Is that neither the opera tors nor the strikers show any signs of weakening and a prolonged struggle is now expected. Because of the lack of coal, owing to the miners' strike, the Rocky Mountain Paper Company, has closed Its mills for an indefinite period, throwing over 200 persons out of employment. It Is possible that another conference looking to, the settlement of the strike In the Northern Colorado field will be arranged in a few days. Both the op erators and many of the miners were disappointed at the failure to come to an agreement on Saturday. The ma jority against a settlement was so small that it is believed that if It can be arranged to have another ballot taken those who. favor a settlement will be In the. majority.

SAN JOSE, Nov. 16. — The Supervisors to-day entered Into a contract for the purchase of fifteen United States Stan dard voting machines to be delivered by March 1, 1904. It is proposed to use them In the San Jose city election In May and In the spring municipal elec tions in Santa Clara. Palo Alto and other towns. Several attempts to blockade cars were made and the police were' kept busy. At West Thirty-ninth street rail road rails were placed upon the track In sDite of the guard maintained* at that point. At. the. West .Forty-sixth street crossing of. the Belt llne : railroad tracks switching' locomotives ArajraaA The company started two. hollers at the Fifty-second and States streets power-house to-day, where twenty non unionists have been quartered as though in a hotel. • At the State street power-house fifteen men had been sim ilarly installed to ' take the places of those who have cult. Twelve strike breakers were smug gled into the barns at West Seventy seventh street and Vincennes road. Cases are becoming numerous where passengers who ride under police pro tection on cars manned by. non-union crews, it Is alleged, have been followed by strike sympathizers after leaving the cars and been beaten, or 1 • stoned. The first case in which women figured Is that of Miss Beatrice Kimbark and her mother, who assert that they .were thus assailed by a crowd near Thirty ninth street and Wentworth' avenue. Miss Kimbark has sworn out a war rant charging. Charles Harper, a union conductor, with having struck her In the face. - ¦ . . This is taken to mean an absolute re fusal of the overtures of the State Board of Arbitration. A declaration of the attitude of the Chicago City Railway Company to ward settling by arbitration board the big strike of railway employes was made this afternoon by General Man ager McCulloch. In reply to a ques tion as to whether arbitration would be the solution of the trouble he said: "Nobody connected with the company is thinking of arbitration." WILL NOT ARBITRATE. Although considerable interference marked the operation of the Werit worth-avenue branch to-day, still a five-minute service was maintained throughout the day and an attempt will be made to-morrow to install a closer schedule. Riots were frequent all along the line, but the police charged on the crowds with such quickness and force that but one serious blockade w:» met with. When the last of the twent>'-flve cars that had been in the service reached the barn at 4:30 o'clock this evening It was decided to suspend fur ther traffic until to-morrow morning. The inquiry of the State Board of Arbitration, asking that the difficulty be submitted to arbitration, it. was an nounced to-night, would be replied to to-morrow by S. R. Bliss, counsel for the company. The communication. It is said, will agree to arbitration of the wage Question only and will entirely ignore the demands of the men that the recognition of the union also be submitted to the board. As the lat ter clause in the demands of the men has been the stumbling block all along to a peaceable settlement of the trou ble, it is said there Is little chance for the present at least of a conciliatory adjustment of the controversy. an effort would be made to-morrow to resume traffic on the Cottage Grove avenue cable lines. The intention is to start trains early In the morning and unless too much opposition is met with the service will be gradually increased later In the day. Five hundred police men will be added to-morrow to the number already detailed to guard the property of the company. This addi tional force will be assigned to the Cot tage Grove-avenue line, and the cars will be run under the same protection as those on Wentworth avenue. Screens have been provided for the grip cars to shield the gripmen and the trains will be run at a high rate of speed In an effort to prevent crowds from block ing the tracks. FIVE-MINUTE SERVICE. . The strikers are making much of an attack on Mayor Harrison by Clarence S. Darrow, who was one of the counsel for the miners In the big anthracite coal strike and who has been one of Mayor Harrison's strongest supporters politically. Darrow has declared that if the ptreet car strikers are beaten Mayor Harrison will be responsible by reason of having authorized the ar rangements whereby the police ride In all the cars that are being operated. According to Darrow, also, the Mayor in conducting negotiations for a re newal of the company's franchise could, by a little pressure, promptly force the company to arbitrate. ATTACK MAYOR HARRISON. As part of the plan of the street rail way men's union for a campaign of education in the fight on the City Railway, circulars were sent broad cast to-day, dealing with the financial features of the "richest street railway corporation" in the country. The body of the circular is an extract from the Civic Federation's report on the City Railway Company. The re port says that In sixteen years the company has earned 44 2-3 per cent on the capital invested. The real value of the company's property, . It says, is $9,800,000. The market value Is $37,630, 000 and the original cost 512,948,000. The State Board of Arbitration re mained in continuous session, awaiting a reply from the railway company re garding the board's proffer of volun tary arbitration.with the alternative of compulsory investigation, which the board is empowered to make. No word was received, however, although -re ports were current that the company's reply had been mailed on Saturday night At a conference of the union officials a call was issued for a meeting of the officers, of all locals of the Amalga mated Association to-morrow night for the purpose of raising money to carry on the strike. • Linemen, dynamo tenders and repair men were called out on strike in. sup port of. the 'carmen to-day.

Nov. 16.— Charges were filed with Speaker Cannon to-day by James W. Newlin against Andrew Kirkpatrlck. United States District Judge of New Jersey. The Impeach ment of Judge Kirkpatrick is asked on the ground that "he has brought ad ministration of justice into contempt through his being the active president of a trading corporation." The charges were referred to the Judiciary Commit tee. Charges Preferred in Congress Al leging That Jurist Is Inter ested in a Trust. ACCUSATIONS AGAINST A UNITED STATES JUDGE He claims that testimony showing an advance in cost of living of 30 per cent was unreliable, that this advance, based on statistics of Professor Plehn of the University of California of the five months of 1903 over the correspond ing months of 1902 was not more than 3 per cent and that this was more than covered by the advance of 10.8 in wages granted by the company In April, 1902. "When it is admitted that the United Railroads are already paying a high rate of wages; that this rate "of wages is higher than that paid for the same service in the great cities in which liv ing is more expensive than in San Francisco, and that there is an abund ance of labor in San Francisco seeking employment at the present high rate of waees, it seems to me there is no ground, for further advancing the wages." NEW YORK, Nov. 16.— Patrick Calhoun of this city, a mem ber of the arbitration commis sion which recently awarded the union employes of the United Railroads of San Francisco an advance in wages, to-day filed his dis senting opinion, giving his reasons why no advance should have been granted. The award, however, stands, the com pany and the men having agreed to ac cept the decision of the majority of the commission. Calhoun says that he be lieves there was nothing in the evi dence to justify any Increase of wages and continues: Among those whose applications were denied were W. H. Young of Butte Mont, and I.

ATHLETIC UNION BESTOHES MEMBERS TO STANDING PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 16.— Marvin Hart and Joe Choynski went six rounds to a draw at the Washington Sporting Club to-night. The bout was fast, both men taking severe punishment and both were bleeding freely at the close. The t two fighters started out at a terrific : pace, hitting right and left with telling ! effect. There was no perceptible dif- I ference in the men during the first two I rounds. In the third round Hart sent Choynski to the floor with a terrific punch on the Jaw. Choynski remained on the floor until Referee Rocup count ed eight and then rose to his feet and came back vigorously at Hart, but the latter managed to hold his own. The men fought so hard in the first three rounds that they came to the center of the ring in the fourth look ing very tired. As a consequence the round was rather time. In the fifth, however, they again went at each other with terrific . smashes of rights and lefts. In the sixth round Hart looked a trifle fresher than Choynski. Hart hit Choynski with his right and left almost at will. The latter was weaken ing rapidly and was a little groggy until thirty seconds from the end of the round, when he rallied. He rushed at Hart and smashed him frequently with his right. Hart, weakened by his own exertions earlier in the round, was unable to withstand Choynski's on slaughts and the latter kept punching him until the bell announced the end of the fight. Notwithstanding the amount of pun ishment received neither man was bad ly hurt. Hart's nose was bleeding and also his mouth, while Choynski had a Elight cut over the right eye. Choynski appeared to be In better i condition than Hart. The latter looked j as though he weighed about fifteen pounds more than his opponent. CENTRAL FIGURES IN CHICA GO'S STRIKE AND ARBITRATOR OF A LOCAL DISPUTE, Both Men Fight Vicious ly for Six Rounds in Philadelphia. LABOR MEN IN WARM DEBATE In thr marriage contract of Miss Florence Bojnere and George W. Whit ip!) Jr. there seems to have been a little j--!:r. The New York statute In sec tion 11 of the acts of 1901 of marriages provides that a marriage may be made by contract, provided the parties to the contract eign It in the presence of two witnesses, who must give their names and residences. The contract must have the same acknowledgments as a deed to real property. The contract must also be recorded within six months from the time of execution. In this case everything was done In iUll retirement of the law but one. Tn*s one was the failure to have the contract recorded. Whether or not at tne time the contract was entered Into Miss Boyere was fully advised as to this provision of law is not made clear, but. at any rate, ghe became aware of the fact a short time later and wanted the contract placed on record. Whit tell, however, persuaded her that it was all right, and told her that if it was recorded his father would discover the fact and disinherit him. Upon these statements she allowed matters to stand as they were. The pair came out to San Francisco in March and all went well for a time. Early In October Whittell. it is al leged, went to his wife and asked her to tear the contract up. This she em phatically refused to do. He made the Fame request many times thereafter, but all met with the same response. One night. It is reported, while ehe was staying at the Lick House, he went to her room very much under the Influence of liquor In company with some colored men and tried to throw her out of bed and make her sleep on the couch. She promptly ordered the whole crowd out of her room. After this matters were serene for a while. About five w^eks ago Whittell took himself and his automobile to the southern part of the State and while there was constantly in company with other people. When this news came to the ears of the contract wife she re solved to take decisive steps. She could 8tand for a time being kept in the background, and she could stand being ' xold that she could not go touring in the BTrfft-flylng automobile through the rosy paths of Pasadena and the orar.jre groves of Santa Ana, because Mr. Whitt?!l Sr. would "set on" to I them and all r.ould be "off." This she bore in meekness and silence until the news came that another was occupying the front -.eat in that speeding ma chine. This was too much and without fur ther ado she Informed Whittell Sr. of the true condition of affairs and of the relationship she bore to his son. Then came the great scene, which was fol lowed by the annulJment of the mar nape and the payment of a handsome j sum which was to act as balm for her broken heart and at the same time to ,' r»H*ve Whittell Sr. of a daughter-in law not to his liking. Mips Boyere is still staying with her ; friend. Mrs. Marion, at 898 Franklin i street. She declines to be interviewed ! upon the subject of her future move- • ir.ents or to make any statement re- ! warding the rumor that another scion of a noble family has offered her his I heart and hand. Minister Powell has informed the State Department that the Government of San Domingo has agreed upon Judge George Gray of Delaware and Senor Galvan. a prominent San Domlngoan, as arbitrators In the dispute between that Government a-"* the San Domingo Improvement Company. It will remain for Captain Brlggs. commanding the Baltimore, and for Minister Powell to determine whether or not the blockade proposed is really effective, and under no circumstances will the State Department respect a paper blockade. The Dominican Government or the insurgents, whoever attempts to estab lish a blockade, must have the ships present to make It effective. The offi cials have not the slightest fear that the Dominican Government will try to sink any regular United States liner so long as the Baltimore is In Dominican waters. It is stated here that this notice U given to prevent a recurrence of the mistake made by the Dominican Gqv ernment in attempting to blockade Puerto Plata recently without giving the requisite notice. As to whether or not the new decree will be respected the officials say nothing can be told at present. WASHINGTON, Nov. 16.— The State Department to-day received a notice from the Dominican Government, through the Consul General in New York, that it has closed by decree to commerce for the duration cf the In surrection the ports of Monte Cristi. Puerto Plata, Sanchez, Macoris and Samana. Manuel D. Galvan, Consul General from Santo Domingo to New York, said to-day that the Cherokee surely would "be sunk if she attempted to enter the five harbors named. He said that two Santo Domlngan gunboats were de tailed to maintain the blockade of those ports. NEW YORK, Nov. 16.— The agent* here of the Clyde line steamer Chero kee, which had trouble with the Do minican Government authorities on her last trip to that island, declared to-day that the Cherokee would sail next "Wednesday on her regular schedule, stopping at Samana Bay, Monte Christ!, Sanchez, Puerto Plata and Ma* coris. DRAW FOR HART AND CHOYNSKI At first the boy decided to keep the satchel, but, probably discovering that its contents were of no value, surren dered it to the police last evening. The contents show that the owner. Is Edward Devillers, a wealthy Frenchman, supposed to be on h*\s way to South Af rica to lay claim to about 10,000 acres of property in the Transvaal. There were several passports, in Ger man. French and English writing. Among the contents of the bag was a clipping from a newspaper of Alliance, N. Y., that tells of Devillers having been arrested in that town for being found asleep in the doorway of a hotel. He was held for a few days, after which he was released. A letter bearing the sig nature of Louise Commeford, New York City, was also in the bag. The police are in search of Devillers, as they are anxious to learn more of the man. who he is, how he came to San Francisco and what he was here for. The fact that the boy held the satchel as long as he did will probably make the chances of overtaking the man re mote. The bag was found by a youth named William Sullivan, who does not remem ber the exact date of his find, but thinks that it was four or five days ago. A small handbag found by a boy on the corner of Oak Grove avenue and Bry ant street and supposed to belong to one Kdward Devillers promises to develop a mystery for the police department to solve. APPOINTEES SET THEIR POSITIONS At that time Moracco paid little at tention to the matter. He says he did not realize its seriousness. Since then other threats and letters have been re ceived, but he remained firm in his de termination to stay here. No attempt was made on his life until last night, when he was go-ing to his lodgings. He was walking up Sansome street and was about to turn into Broadway when the men sprang upon him and adminis tered the beating. The police are of the opinion that the enemies of the man are sincere in their threats and believe the injured man's story. Detective Taylor is of the opinion that the men who made the at tack did not intend to slay Moracco. but desired to impress upon him the fact that they meant business and to force him to quit the city. Luigi Moracco, who claims to be a clerk residing at 410 Broadway, says he is under the ban c-f the Mafia. His life has been threatened and repeated warn ings have been sent him to leave the city. Last night he was badly beaten with an iron bar by his enemies on San some street, and the case has been placed in the hands of the Detective Department. . Shortly before midnight Officer Rob ert Silver found Moracco on Broadway, badly cut on the head and face. The injured man said an attack had been made upon him by a number of men and that an iron bar had been used as a weapon. He was left bleeding and almost unconscious on the sidewalk and after his assailants had left the scene he started for his lodgings. He states that he knows one of his assailants and will swear out a warrant for this man's arrest this morning. Detective Charles Taylor interviewed the injured man at police headquarters and a tale of the Mafia was unfolded to him. Moracco says that he haa been in the city but a short time and Is em ployed as a clerk. Soon after his ar rival he v.as suspected of being an agent of the Italian Government and the arm of the secret society reached after him. On October 10 he recei\'ed a letter warning him to leave the coast and he . was threatened with death should he disregard the cc-mmand. On the paper was drawn, in crude fashion, a skull and crossbones, a dagger, bomb, cutlass and revolver. Name of Edward Devillers, Wealthy Frenchman, on the Papers.
