of the car and another was seated
in the truck. Closing following the
tiuclc was another automobile, containing
an escort of armed county
Excited consultations oecured
among the strikers but no attempt
was made to stop the truck containing
the non-union men. The automobile
containing the officer stoped
just beyond the group of men.
The striking miners started toward,
but were ordered back in
none too genUe tones. After a conference
between the leader of the
march and the county officials during
which the truck containing the
non-union men got safely away, the
marchers agreed to go home.
The officers drove to a turn m
the road and let the marchers pass
Then the automobile drove back
to the mine. Men at the end. of the
marching group halted at this action
but. aparently deciding in favor
of discretion, presently marched
on with their comrades. Their
I decis'on was perhaps influenced
somewhat by the appearance of an- .
other automobile containing a state
policeman and other officers.

Sheriff Charlton and his men got
into action again and rounded up
ninety-one of the marchers. An
attempt was made to arrest the
whole crowd, but many dodged
into side-streets, alleys and doorways
and made their escapes.
Those taken into custody were
searched and locked up in the
county jail. No weapons were
found on any of the men, though
two of them succeeded in getting
rid of loaded revolvers behind a
radiator in the jail office. Nearly
all of the miners arrested had
money in their pockets, several of
them having more than $100 each.
Those who were arrested in the
raid and who are also held for
complicity in the attack on the

their appointments for the
coming year.
Later in the same month the
M. E. Church will hold its anpual
convention here. This meeting :

the most conspicuous feature ii
newspaper history of his lattei
life. Although the active head o
the Standard Oil Co'., of New Yorl
from its establishment ip 186 5 t<
1911 and one of the richest mer
in America, his prominence was
overshadowed by that of his eldei
brother, John D. Rockefeller, th(
founder of the Rockefeller inter
ests in oil, and for many years the
head of the parent company.
They were both born at Rich
,ford, Tioga, County, New York
on their father's farm; Willian
on May 31, 1841, two years aftei
the birth of John. In Cleveland
Ohio to which the family removed
while the brothers were boys
William began his mercantih
career in the produce commissior
busines, as did his brother, anc
joined the latter soon after he became
interested in oil, about 1862
The establishment, soon afterward,
of a branch office in Nev
York, led to the removal of Wil
liara Rockefeller to that city t<
take charge of it. From that time
until his retirement in 1911 he
was the active head of the Nev
York company.
Seldom Seen Together
In almost every respect except
his success as an oil magnate
William Rockefeller differed front
his brother. He was a club man;
his brother belonged to none. He
tnfhut slightly in
philanthropic work of any kind
or religious activity. Along side
the blocks of millions his brother
gave away William Rockefellers
largest known gift was $100,00C
to Wellesley College. He was an
enthusiastic motorist, and saw
nothing in golf, of which his brother
was such a devotee. He did
not enjoy the latter's rugged
health. Although there was nc
known estrangement and they
both had summer residences at
Tarrytown, N. Y? the brothers
were seldom seen together.
William Rockefeller departed
further afield from the oil industry
that did his brother. He was
a large factor in the railway
world, having succeeded Cornelius
Vanderbilt as a director of the
New York Central Railroad and
having been officer or director ol
a score of other important transportation
lines, and as many more
miscellaneous enterprises, including
large interests in copper, insurance
and public utilities.
On May 25, 1864, he was mar
rled to Almira Geraldine Uooaseu
of Fairfield, Conn. He had two
eons and two daughters, William
G., Percy A., Ethel G., wife ol
Marcellus H. Bodge and Emma,
wife of Br. David H. McAlpln, Jr.

The Nelson
Tom Mix has never been lookec
upon as a comedian, but in '"CKasins
the Moon," he has shown thai
he is quite as much at home ir
comedy as in the roles of Westerr
life for which he is best known
When he combines both actior
and fun, as he does in the vehicle
in which he is appearing at the
Nelson today, he puts into it the
same spirit and enthusiasm thai
have characterized his formei
Eva Novak, as the sweetheart
who believes her lover (Tom Mix)
should do something useful. Instead
of spending his time and
money so lavishly in having a
good time appears also in a new
role, but is ideally cast.

For those having a sense oi
humor and the ridiculous, "Pardon
My French" offers a feast q^
fun and witticism, and even those
who may not be in this class will
laugh in spite of themselves.
It Is a satire upon stage-struck
folk, who think they can act, and
that a waiting world would receive
them with enthusiasm and
delight. If only they were given
-> ? cnnnrinnltr to disolav their
talents, and the newly rich, who
break into society, with nothing
to commend them but their checkbook.
Vivian Martin, a very charming
and versatile young actress, appears
first as a member of a stranded
one-night-stand theatrical
troupe, who upon going back to
New York, are forced to seek
other employment.
Polly secures a position as
French (?) maid in the home of
the Hawkers, and her trials in
trying to "teach them manners" is
extremely amusing.
The added features are a Century
