NEWS FROM NATIONAL CAPITAL CAUSES A SENSATION AMONG THE MINE OWNERS Start Flood of Telegrams to Washington to Prevent With drawal of Troops; Sheriff Will Be Ordered to Maintain Or der; Federation Counsel Wired President That Miners Were Not Getting Square Deal From Commissioners, Who Had Already Recommended Withdrawal. WASHINGTON, December 20. President Roosevelt upon the recom mendation of tho commission which ho fcent to Goldfield to investigate tho la bor trouble there, today issued an order directing the withdrawal of troops from Goldfield, fixing tho timo for their de parture to their former stations at Snn Francisco and Monterey, Cal at De cember 30. The telegrams on which tho decision to withdraw the troops is based was given out at tho Whito House today. One is dated December 17, directed to Sparks, and is signed' by President Roosevelt: "I sent troops at your request because from tho tenor of your telegram, and from representations made to me by two senators and members of tho house from Nevada, it appeared that an insurrection was imminent against which tho state authorities would be powerless to cope. The troops have now been stationed at Goldfield ten days and no insurrection has occurred and seemingly no circumstances exist to justify your calling on mo for ac tion by troops under tho provision of the constitution. The troops were sent to bo ready to meet a grave emergency which bocmed likely at once to arise, and not to provide a substitute for the exercise by the state of its police functions. "I do not feel at liberty to leave them indefinitely under such cir cumstances, that they in effect would be performing on the part of tho United States, those ordinary duties of maintaining public or der in a state which rests upon tho government of the state. As the legislature of Nevada has not been convened, I am bound to assume that the powers already vested in the police officers of the state aro adequate and if they choose, they can maintain order themselves. "Under these circumstances, un less there is forthwith further causo shown to justify keeping troops at Goldfield I shall direct that they shall return to their form er station. "THEODORE ROOSEVELT." The following telegram was sent to Sparks today by the president: "I received no answer from you to my telegram of tho. 17th, in which I said that unless there was forthwith further causo shown to justify keeping troops at Goldiield I should direct their return to their former station. I am informed by three representatives of the depart ment of commerce and labor, who aro in Goldfield by my order, that you would not convene tho legisla ture to consider the call for troops, nor tako tho necessary steps to form state military forces. Their report further satisfies me that there are no disturbances threat ened which the government of Ne vada ought not to bo able to con trol if it starts to work with tho serious purpose to do so, but that no effort is being mado by the gov ernment of Nevada to take the steps necessary in the matter. "I stand ready to see that the national government does its fnli constitutional duty in tho matter of preserving order, but this readi ness on the part of tho national government does not excuse tho state government for failure to per form its full duty in tho first place. "Federal aid should not bo sought for by a stato as a mothod of relieving itself from this duty and as a stato should not be per mitted to substitute tho United States for tno government ui m , stato in tho ordinary duties of j maintaining order within the state, tor tho reasons given in this and my former telogtam, I accordingly direct that tho troops roturn to their former station on December 30. "THEODORE ROOSEVELT." Mino Owners Hear News. GOLDFIELD, Dccombcr 20. News of tho president's order removing tho troops from Goldfield on tho 30th caused a sensation among tho mine own ers, and tho residents of tho city gen erally. The news was received at noon and during tho afternoon conferences wcro held between Cnptain Cox, tho representative of Governor Sparks, and Colonel Reynolds, commanding the troops, .and between tho mine owners and members of President Roosevelt's commission. President Mnckintou and other oil! cials of tho local miners union, said tonight that tho possibility of disorder or violence of any sort will bo no greater nftver the removal of tho troops than now and that they shall uso ev ery endeavor to maintain peac and quiet. No Violence, Says Hilton. Attorney Hilton, who was sent hero by President Moj'cr of tho Western Federation to assist in effecting a com promise with the mine owners, after a conference with Mnckinton, saf.l that ho was assured no violence would be attempted. He said tho position of the miners was unchanged. It is said that tho governor will nt once issue instructions to Sheriff Ingalls to tho effect that he shall expect the sheriff to adopt vigorous meawrcs to Insure tho safety and peace of every resident of Ksmeralda county, and that he will bo prepared at the first sign of trouble to declare martial law. "If violence is attempted immediate ly upon tho removal of tho troops," said Cox, "then tho troops will be btopped euroutc to San Francisco and brought back hero or they may bo brought back from San Francisco or Monterey on very, short notice. The or der of withdrawal dos-uot mean that Goldfield is-to bo entirely without the military aid of federal troops in case of serious trouble." Want Troops to Stay. County officers visited the labor coin cission today and Higncd a statement to tho effect .that it would be to the best interests of the people of Goldfield to have the troops, remain for an in definite time. The ahcriff was one of tho signers. The civic bodies of Gold field aro holding sessions and Htrcng statements aro to be forwarded to the president within tho coming few hours regarding tho wisdom of withdrawing the troops. The Mine Owners' associa tion arc holding an executive session and will issue n statement setting forth the position of the operators. At the meeting two extreme measures will bo discussed and probably one of them de cided upon definitely. One involves tho closing down of all mines in Goldfield indefinitely, and the other tho bringing in of a large number of strike breakers, to be on tho ground by the time the troops leave. President Dowlcn beforo tho meeting, said he favored clocking the mines. Owners Tear Riot. "The operators will at once organize for their protection," ho said. "We have 150 men whom wo aro morally bound to give protection to. We have ourselves and our property ami wc shall take every precautionary measure pos sible nnd'lose no timo in iloing so. We fear personal violence and riot when the protection of trooijs is withdrawn. "Constable Inman, who now has a largo force of deputies, many in the employ of the operators, states lie will increase his force greatly as fast as reliable men can bo secured for depu ties. Sheriff Ingalls declares that ho sees no causo for alarm in the order for the removal of troops and that he shall use his best endca-or to preserve peace. ' Peoplo Apprehensive. Notwithstanding thero assurances tho peoplo tonight aro greatly apprehensive of troublo to come when tho troops have departed and thcro will be great pres sure brought upon the president to coun termand the order insofar as at least a portion of tho troops is concerned. A Htatcmcnt issued by the mine owners after the session of tho executive) com mittee says "Tho absence of troops from Goldfield will in no way affect tho position taken by the association. If we aro unlawfully intcrfcrrcd with, it is the duty of tho stato of Nevada to give us protection and if tho slate is unablo to do so, then it is tho duty of tho United 8tates. We will employ guards to discharge as far as possiblo those duties that really belong to the state and nation. Don't Want tho Blame, "if we fail and our property is destroyed and tho lives of our em ployes or somo of our own members are forfeited as a consequence, tho blnmo cannot be laid at our door," concludes tho statement. Tho text of a telegram sent by Hil ton to Roosevelt today to which no re ply has been received is as follows: "Every effort yesterday by us for a conference and settlement was rofuscd by tho mino owners, Tho commission ALLEGED KEEPER OF 0PM JOINT GETS HEW? FINE City Officers Start Cleaning Out Halucination Empori ums of Globe, San Ching, ,n celestial who conducts a dream establishment on Push street opposite tho ofiico of the Pinal Water company, was the center of attraction in nn interesting trial in Judge Thom as' court yesterday. Sam was arrested by Ofllcer Floyd DIcvins on a territor ial warrant for operating an opium smoking resort and after several wit nesses had testified to indulging in that happy but demoralizing pastinio in Ching's place, the court adjudged hiin guilty as charged and fixed his punish ment at a fine of $50. Rawlins & Little defended Ching and they immediately asked for a new trial, which being de nied, notice of appeal to the district court was given. For some time the city authorities havo been trying to stamp out the opium evil in Globe, but with little ef fect. It appears that tho city ofliccrs aro powerless to proceed against the keepers of joints as there is no city .or dinance prohibiting the business. Con sequently tho first step was taken by Ofiiccr DIcvins in his capacity as depu ty sheriff, and tho conviction of the first dope joint keeper arrested indi cates that others will now be proceed ed against. Although the Chinaman convicted yesterday claims that he has not been operating an opium den, tho officers say that the place has been generally known as ono where, for a nominal charge, anyone could obtain the ques tionable delights which come with a few "drags on the pipe." It is said that characters of tho lower walks of life are not the only ones who havo frequented the place, but that men and women of tho upper walks have been habitues of tho joint. Thero aro other dope joints in Globe which aro known to tho ofliccrs, and now that a start has been made, it is up to them to go through with it and clean them all out. ers aro hearing only enemies of or ganized labor ns witnesses.

Secre tary of War Taft returned today from a trip around the world bringing re newed assurance of Japan's friendliness toward the United States, but declining to say anything with respect to the political situation in this country. He said he had been too long out of inti mate touch with political affairs nt homo to discuss them. One of Tnft's interviewers had tho temerity to ask: "Who is your choico for president?" Amid general laughter, in which he joined, the secretary said: "I guess you will have to leave that for infer ence." On to Washington. Taft left for Washingtonon an caily train saying that the accumulated mat ters in the war department would keep his nose to the official grindstone for some time nnd thnt preparation of his special report on the Philippines which would be in book form would also re quire much time in the near future. "It is the height of foolishness to talk of possiblo war with Japan,' de clared tho secretary. "Japan does not desire war with the United States and wo certainly do not desire war with Japan. If there is any war spirit any where in Jnpan, 1 failed to find the slightest dot of it and everywhere thero is talk of continued peace. 1 speak very confidently about this. Our trade re lations will Japan aro extensive and constantly growing. Jnpan 's exports amount to annually about $100,000,000, of which we tak a third. Wc ship vast quantities of commodities to Jnpan and this sort of trade is a great pacifi cator." Nothing Out of tho Way. "Wlmt about the Pacific fleet?" "As long ns the Pacific belongs to us as much as to any one else I see no reason why wo should not send snips there on a practice cruise. Tho Jap anese arc too intelligent and high mind ed to attribute any false motive to the movement. ' "My trip had as the onlj definite ob ject tho trip to the Philippines and my trip to Japan :as incidental. I was much pleased with the situation in the Philippines. They are much better than I hoped for and the initial proceedings of the firt Philippine assembly and its tendency towards conservatism despite a supposed radical majority is most gratifying.

G. Goodwin, street supervisor, making permanent the injunction restraining tho city from grading Dread street between Mosquito and Cedar streets. In his modifica tion of the judgment, the court yes terday dissolved tho injunction agaiust the city, allowing it to remain per manent against the street supervisor. Tho decision of Judgo Nnvo yester day is practically a reversal of judg ment and is viewed as n victory by 1 tho city forces, which it undoubtedly is.

SHAFT At a distance of 260 feet from the shaft on the 8th lovel of the Globe-Boston or Mallory shaft of the Globe Con solidated company, tho expected strike of tho Globe-Boston vein was made yes terday afternoon. The strike has been expeeted for the last ten days and con sequently did not cause much surprise to those working in the mine, although the 6re find was tho cause of consider able rejoicing by General Manager Mc Carthy. The vein is the same that was mined on the 450 level of the mine, however, with varied success owing to the fact that the ore had undergone considerable leaching. It was estimated bv the man agement that by sinking the shaft 330 feet deeper and crosseutting to the vein, it would be found greatly en riched ami from the appearance of the ore taken out after the vein was cut yesterday, the management was cor rect in its judgment. The vein has been barely entered, but samples taken out from the footwall after the round of shots had broken into it, indicate rich copper values and high sulphur contents. GRAZED TRADER SRDOTS BROKER TRFMIICIDES Double Killing Follows Refusal of Further Credit; Man Ap parently Insane, NEW YORK, December 20. Jamej II. Oliphnnt, senior member of the stuck exchange firm of James II. Oli pliant & Co., died tonight from a bullet wound indicted at his office this after noon by Charles A. Geiger, a customer, from Heaufort, S. O., who after firing upon Oliphnnt, killed himself. The men were closeted in Oliphnnt 's private office at the timo and all that is known of the incidents immediately preceding the shooting was learned from the lips of the dying broker. Oliphnnt -aid that his refusal to extend further credit to Geiger caused the tragedy. Thero is reason to bcliece, however, that Geiger became mentally irrespon sible. A note book found upon his peison contained a computation by which the writer apparently figured he would be worth $3,000,000 by January 1. He actually possessed, ns far as his porsonal effects showed, less than $11. NOT GUILTY OF VIOLATING EIGHT-HOUR LABOR LAW SEARCHLIGHT, New, December 20.

Give $10,000 for Relief Fund. JACOBS CREEK, Pa., December 20.r From the Darr mine of the Pittsburgh Coal company where the terrific ex plosion yesterday imprisoned and almost beyond doubt killed every ono of 200 men who entered tho mine for the day, only six bodies had been brought to the surface up to 10 o'clock tonight. The others who have been located lie in the entry awaiting a propitious time for their removal to the temporary morgue. Most of jthem, however, are hemmed in by falls of slate and other malforma tions a mile and a half or more beyond the point to which the rescuers pene trated. The rescue work has been halted, as a vast amount of bracing must be done before it can proceed. The rescuing parties 7,500 feet from the main- en trance found conditions such that to avert an additional disastei, precau tionary work must be done. Poisonous gases must be forced from the sec tions beyond ami additional air ventila tion must bo provided for that section. To neglect these precautions and pro ceed with the exploration is to risk the life of every man in the rescuing force. To provide the.e safeguards requires hours of time. It is not believed that the great mass of bodies can be 'reach ed before tomorrow noon. As to the number of victims, Coroner Wynn said tonight that after, a careful investiga tion he is satisfied the number will be between ISO and 90. Conrad Schnth, aged forty-eight, crazed by the death in the- mino of his son and other relatives;-'ended bis own life today by drowning-in- the river. He was a widower and leaves four small children.
