WILL BE LAID OFF THROUGH
FAILURE TO REACH AGREE­
MENT WITH OPERATORS
NO SETTLEMENT
REACHED IN IOWA
NEITHER OPERATORS NOR MIN­
ERS ARE WILLING TO VENTURE
ASSERTION JUST HOW LONG
SUSPENSION WILL CONTINUE
All the mines Iowa will close
down tonight for an indefinite
period. This action resulted from
the inability of the joint confer
ence of the miners and operators
to reach an agreement to continue
work pending the settlement of
the wage scale for the ensuing
period. There will be no strike
and no trouble whatever. The
operators had sufficient coal on
hands to run them while the
scale question is hemg settled
and until that agreement. is
reached the mines will remain
closed. It is the concensus of
opinion that the lavoff period
will last, thirty days at least.
Indianapolis. Ind., March 31 At
least. 250,000 union coal miners will
lay down their picks and shovels in
Ohio. Missouri, Iowa. Kansas. Okla
homa, Arkansas and Texas tonight.
They will refuse to work until a con
tract has been signed by the operat
ors.
The Illinois miners, it is reported
from Springfield, were willing to con
tinue work pending the agTeemenr,
but the operators decided to close
down until April 15, by which time, it
Is thought, the miners and operatoi
will have agreed. The same action
probably will be taken by the Pitts
burg district operators.
Wages Not at Stake.
There is no question of wage or
principle at stake in the move and
technically the miners will not be on
strike, but will merely cease work be
cause the operators, except in Indiana,
and Illinois, show no real intention of
meeting and treating with them.
The contracts under which the coal
workers are now bound to remain in
the shafts will expire at midnight to
night and no provision has been made
in the majoritv of the fields for The
operation of the coal properties unvil
a permanent contract again lias lie^n
put into force.
Attempts are being made in ioint
sessions of miners and wo'-i.ovs at
Terre Haute and Pittsbursr to frame
up some temporary agreement t"
prevent a shutdown, but so far neith
er meeting has been successful.
No Suspension In Indiana.

PRETTY GIRL
ACCUSES MAN
MISS HARRIS CLAIMS J. W. BALD­
WIN SENT HER OBSCENE
LETTER.
BOTH OF SHENANDOAH
Matter Consumed the Morning Session
of the Federal Court—Liquor
Cases Are Dis
posed of.
An obscene letter case was taken
up in Federal court this momiug. The
United States alleged that a letter,
obscene and suggestive, had been
written by John W. Baldwin, a young
man of Shenandoah but who at the
time was In Dakota, oMlss Pocahon
tas Harris, a pretty young woman of
twenty years of age, of the same town.
The letter bore no signature and dv.
fendant through his attorney Jo
Jaques claimed that he had not written
the letter.
Too Vulgar for Publicity.
"The lettel In question," said Attor
ney Temple for the government, "was
so vulgar and suggestive that it Is
impossible to make it public but pho
tographic copies will be given to each
two of of the jurymen."
In an endeavor to connect Mr.
Baldwin with the writing of the letter
a postal card was produced that Mr.
Baldwin had written to Miss Harris
last fall and which he acknowledged
writing. The letter was received at
the Shenandoah postofflce Feb. 24 1908
Miss Harris, her father, mother, a
brother and H. E. Deiters, the Shenan
doah postmaster, who Is the editor of
a Shenandoah paper, were placed on
the stand. As was also postofflce in
spector Swenson who had looked the
case up.
Baldwin Wrote Copy.
Mr. Beaner said that he and Mi.
Swenson asked Mr. Baldwin to niako
a copy of the letter sent to Miss Har
ris and he did so. They declared that
they considered the letter ana the
copy were written by the same per
son. Baldwin nevertheless denied
that he had written other ihnn the
postal card which he said he had tent
to Miss Harris to learn the address of
one of her brothers.
The acquaintanceship of Baldwin
and Miss Harris was maJe about two
years ago when she was a girl of 18
years, wearing short dresses, and
shucked corn with the other girls in
the Shenanodah canning plant. Baldwin
did not work there but visited the
works several times.

ALBIA PIONEER PASSES AWAY
FUNERAL MONDAY.
Albia.—Grandma Henderson, one of
the quaint and lovely oild ladies of
this county, passed peacefully away at
her home in Union township Sunday
morning. She had been sick for many

their final respect to her memory.

friends are regreting that he makes
the move.

pit at the Christian church. He is
being given a "try-out" by the con
