Understood That General Will
Take Matters Out of Gov
ernor Sparks' Hands,
Attempt to Settle Will Be Made
on His Arrival; Miners Pass
Resolutions Against Pres
ence of Troops,
GOLDFIELD, Nov., December 10. It
is reported tonight that General Fun
ston is to como to Goldficld to person
ally take charge of tho situation, and
moro troops, it is said, may bo sent.
Governor Sparks arrived this afternoon
from Carson and had a conference with
Colonel Reynolds, who is in command
of the tropps.
Tho meeting of tho executive com
mittees of the Goldflcld miners' union
and of the mine owners' association will
be held tonight.
It is believed hero that Roosevelt is
responsible for tho decision that Fun
ston is to como to Goldficld and that the
intention is to tako tho conduct of af
fairs" out of 'tho hands of the governor
and tho Esmeralda county officials, and
that martial law will bo declared in
Goldficld immediately upon the arrival
of Funston.
The mine owners are fearful of tho
conscquenco when tho attempt to open
tho mines is made, but they aro ap
parently determined to carry out their
intention to resume operations Thurs
day. Expect Martial Law.
Indications arc that the military au
thorities are preparing to proclaim mar
tial law and that tho situation will
then bo taken out of the hands of
Sparks, who is not in touch with tho
sheriff's office. Colonel Reynolds said
that ho has not yet obtained a thorough
grasp of the situation or has he learned
all of tho conditions which led to tho
sending of tho troops. '
Sparks was visited at his hotel by
many prominent mino owners today,
but denied that any official conference
between himself and the officials of the
association had taken place. JIo was
visited also by officers of the miners'
union, who assured him that tho union
will do all in its power to prevent vio
lence and that it has been and still is
earnestly endeavoring to effect a peace,
ablo settlement of tho difficulties be
tween themselves and tho operators.
Tho universal imression is that mar
tial law will not be declared until after
the arrival of Funston, but that prepara
tion will be mado at once for tho work
which will have- to bo performed by
the troops as soon as such action is
taken. Doubtless a search of tho camp
will be made for the weapons and am
munition alleged to be hidden by some
of tho despcrato element among tho
miners and tho district whero tho miners
live will bo patrolled by soldiers night
and day.
Will Try to Start Mines.
Tho mino owners' officials still as
sert that their original intentions to re
open tho mines Thursday morning will
be carried out and that enough men
have been secured to carry out tho at
tempt. Although -it is admitted that tho
number of men who havo already sign
ed tho new agreement as individuals is
small, their hope lies in tho supposition
that after a few of tho moro fearless
havo gono back many others will soon
follow. It is definitely known that at
least 500 men havo been secured in
tho mining camps or California, princi
pally in Calaveras county, through tho
agency of tho Thoil Dotcctivo bureau,
and aro being held in. readiness to como
to Goldficld on two days' notice. A
representative of tho Thiol bureau is in
Goldficld, and while ho has had no deal
ings with tho association, it is said that
several individual parties havo retained
their services to help break tho strike.
Mahoney on Way.
GOLDFIELD, Nov., December 10.
At tho meeting of tho executivo com-
'mittco of tho Minora' union tonight,
resolutions condemning tho authorities
for sending troops, protesting against
their remaining hero and demanding
their withdrawal at onco wero passed
and tho decision to stand by their pre
vious declaration in regard to tho refus
al to accept scrip for wages, was made.
It was also decided to mako no over
tures to the mino owners other than
thoso previously extended.
C. E. Mahoney, vice president of tho
Western Federation, is on his way to
Goldficld from Denver, and ho will ar
rive tomorrow. Some action by tho lo
cal union may bo taken aftor his arrival
looking to tho speedy settlement of tho
Not to Tako Charge.
SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., December 10.
Brigadier General Funston tonight
said ho would leave tomorrow with
.two or three staff officers for Gold
ficld for tho purposo of looking over the
situation, but ho wislied it mado plain
that ho was not going there to tako
command of tho troops or in any way to
supervise' Colonel Roynalds, and noithor
is it his present intention to order ad
ditional troops to tho mining region.
Funston expects to upend only two or
three days at Goldficld,

left tho' room nnd heard tho
crack of tho ritle as ho was de
scending the stairs.
Tho witness connected Powers
directly by stating that ho had
fixed tho door for tho entrance
of the assassin nnd had approved
of the plan.
Youtsoy said that former-Governor
Taylor had dictated a Jot
ter to him asking Howard to
como to Frankfort to "do the
job." Youtscy testified that
Taylor had stated that ho would
give $1,500, a pardon and a mili
tary escort to tho mountains to
tho man who would kill Goebcl.

Going After Satisfaction for
Roast, Burton Gets Hide
Full of Lead. .
GOLDFIELD, Nov.. Decombcr 10.
Francis L. Burton was shot and killed
at Mina today by J. Holtman Buck,
editor of tho Western Nevada Minor,
Burton had been run out of .Rawhide
by a cornmittco ana uuck came out with
a scathing article in tho Miner against
Burton, who' was a resident of Mina,
saying that if tho people of that town
had the ncrvo of tho Rawhido people,
Burton would not be anywhere within
a thousand mijes of tho place.
Burton, who was known as a fighter,
went into the Miner o flic a to take
Buck to task and in tho quarrel that
ensued Buck shot him, Ho died within
a short time.
Burton is alleged to havo a record
in Colorado and Massachusetts as a pro
moter nnd financial sharper. Sovcral
years ago ho was arrested in Massachu
setts in connection with some mining
promotion. Ho was tried, convicted and
sent to tho penitentiary, where hp
buncoed tho warden of tho penitentiary
into investing $70,000 in ono of his
schemes whilo still a prisoner.
Lator ho camo to Goldfiold and dur.
ing tho boom stnrtcd two banks, ono at
Goldficld and the other at Mina, a small
camp south of horc. Tho two banks
failed and it developed that they had
been robbed by Burton under tho guisp
of a borrower. Ho bankrupted the on
tiro camp of Mina, and for nearly a yoar
not a singlo proporty was nblo to do any
work. Burton had to flco tho country
or suffer lynching. When next heard
from at Mina, ho wns jumping town lots
and raising troublo gonerally. Ho was
mixed in innumerable quarrels and was
in court continually. Ho went to Raw
hide, ono of tho nearest boom camps,
but the miners of Rawhido heard of his
arrival and after a mass meeting was
held, Burton was driven out of the
Buck, who did tho killing, had a
newspaper at Rawhido as well as at
Mina and both papers were severe in
their denunciations of Burton. Buck has
always stood high in tho state.

Mexico, were mado in the United States
court yesterday by Attorney E, E. Ellin,
wood. Before making the motion, Mr.
Ellinwood, who will probably hove
chargo of the defenso if the cases come
to trial, had entered with him as as
sociate counsel, Judgo W. A. Hawkins
and Judge John Franklin of El Paso
and Rawlins &, Little of Globe.
Tho motion to set nsido tho indict
mpnls Was a lengthy ono and was sup
ported by Affidavits from each of the
defendants. The niQtlqns, were denied
by (Judge Nave, who immediately after
had tho order of denial vacated, giving
the defendants until this morning at
9:30 to fmop(J thp motions,
Gordon Was Witness.
The motions to quash contain al
legations of n number of irregularities
in tho procuring of the indictments, tho
principal ono of which is thnl Peyton
Gordon, tho assistant attorney general,
appeared beforo tho grand jury as a wit
ness without being first sworn, and that
ho gave as evidence what was, purport
ed to be tho written nnd signed testi
mony of It. B. Hegardt given before
tho federal grand jury at Santa Fe;
that Mr. Hegardt was asked to testify
thero without being first informed of
his rights to rcfuso answers to ques
tions which might incriminate him and
that contrary to tho law, Mr. Gordon's
name as n. wltposs id not appear with
the names of other witnesses at the

was mado by tho government counsel
opposing tho setting asido of tho indict

motions which will bo mado this morn
ing by tho attorneys for tho defense,
moro positivo statements as to irregular,
itles in tho government's proceedings
will bo made. Just what will follow a
possible quashing of tho indictments is
conjecture, but It has been unofficially
stated that a special grand jury will bo
called to again consider tho. casos.
