STRIKE ON IRON RANGE Order Arrest of Leader*. Hibbing, Minn., July 28. Fearing that the present quiet is only the calm before the storm, a warrant was yes terday sworn out for the arrest of Teo filo Petriella, the little Italian who is engineering the present gigantic strike of the iron ore miners on the ranges north of here. The citizens believe if he were thrown into jail on some minor charge it would have the effect of breaking up the strike. Petriella left here yesteiday morning for Eve leth, and the officers have not succeed ed in locating him. Pinkertons on the Way. There is a good deal of suppressed excitement over the report that 100 Plnkerton detectives were on their way to protect the big Steel corpora tion mines at Eveleth when an effort is made to open them Monday. The miners look upon the Pinkertons as their deadliest enemies. Despite the protection offered here by deputies armed with rifles and revolvers no men are returning to work, indicating that the ranks of the strikers are still solid. Although many of the idle men are seen upon the streets they do not gather in the saloons, and not the least remarkable thing in connection with the general suspension of work is the good order which the leaders have so far preserved. Developments Expected. That interesting developments are expected shortly is shown by the fact that Sheriff Bates of St. Louis county arrived here on the afternoon train and at once held a hasty consultation with Mayor Weirick. The sheriff claims he can land 150 deputies from Duluth here in four hours' time. Sheriff Call* for Armed Force. Duluth, Minn., July 30.—A telephone message last evening to the News Tribune from Bovey, Minn., says that Sheriff Hoolihan of Itasca county, who is at Nashwauk, has sent a telegram to his deputy at Bovey. telling the lat ter to get the deputies under arms and be prepared to move at a mo ment's notice. A mass meeting of the representa tive citizens, those sympathizing with the United States Steel corporation in terests, was held at Bovey yesterday morning, with the result that about 150 men under arms are reported to be camped about the city hall, prepared to entrain in ten minutes' time. Strong Union Camp. There are about a hundred men un der arms at the Holman location, which will be picked up en route to Nashwauk. The mines at Nashwauk have not been closed at all. It is said to be the strongest camp of the West ern Federation, as there is less sym pathy there for the United States Steel interest than at any other place on the range. It is doubted here In Duluth that the situation is so serious as the instructions of Sheriff Hooli han to his deputies would indicate. Mayor Is Hopeful. Mayor Culloin said last night that he was very hopeful of being able to announce by to-day noon, if not before, that the objections to a complete un derstanding would have been removed. Unless the ore handlers' strike is set tled, it is the opinion of those familiar with the conditions on the range, it is useless to try to open the mines, as there would be no way of disposing of the output The chief stumbling block in the way of settlement of the ore handlers' strike on the docks here and-at the Allouez docks at Superior and Two at at ahmit tsAiiniuiA i.oa nition of the union.

No word has come from the ange towns as to the situation there, but. it is said to be a sure thing that everything is quiet. Arbitration Is Proposed by Men. Duluth, July 31.—No settlement of the ore handlers' strike is yet in pros pect. The men have written a letter to the officials of the Duluth, Missabe & Northern railroad proposing arbitra tion, and the officials of the company will sleep on the proposition. To-day the men will undoubtedly get some sort of an answer. Willing to Work. At the meeting yesterday the men spent some time in discussion of what terms they would ask of the company for a settlement. Finally thtf matter of arbitration was suggested aud a further discussion was put to a vote and the proposition was carried with just one vote to spare, showing that the attitude of the men was in a large measure for returning to work and trusting to the officials of the railroad to do as they had promised at the con ference Sunday, that is to take all the KEY MEN THREATEN. San Francisco, July 31.—A renewal of hostilities is threatened between the telegraphers and their employers. The local union served notice yester day on the Western Union that in its belief the spirit of the agreement which settled the strike was not being observed by the corporation. Resolu tions were passed expressing the in tention of the union to take the matter up with the higher officials of the Western Union. Killed Going for Cows.- Lebanon, S. D., July 31.—A young farmer named Kuny, living near here, was struck and instantly killed by a bolt of lightning. He was on his way lo the pasture to .drive the stock home when he met death. Body Found Near River. Chippewa Falls. Wis., July 31.—Aft er four days' search Clarence Kltz miller of Sheboygan was found dead iear the bank of the Chippewa river. Whether it was an accident or suicide is not known. .. men back as fast as conditions on the docks warranted. Opposed to Arbitration. During the afternoon it was learned from sources almost official that the officials were opposed to arbitration of the main questions at issue—that of a raise in pay aud a recognition of the union. The compauy is prepared to resume business at the docks in a few days if the men do not return to work of their own accord. Work is going on at the Allouez docks in Superior. The com pany officials say the men violated an agreement made last spring, and it is up to them to come back and live up to it. or others will take their places. Still there is the possibility that the company may grant the men arbitra tion, aud in that case the docks will resume their wonted activity at once. Digging Ore on Range. In that event ibe miles will be re opened, and then will come another test. Yesterday reports came from Hibbing that black smoke began belching from a dozen stacks on the range iu that district. Ore was being taken from five mines with more or less small crews, which it was said would be increased to-day. Not a sign of trouble was reported during the day. At all the mines working, how ever, armed deputies were visible, watchful for the least sign of a disturb ance. but at a late hour no news of interference had been received at Du luth. Armed Thugs Seek Violence. Denver, July 30. James Kerwin, acting secretary of the Western Fed eration of Miners, received the follow ing telegram from Acting President C. E. Mahone.v, who is now in charge of the Minnesota iron workers strike: "Conditions over range look favora ble. Very few men working. Armed thugs in employ of the steel trust are seeking to create violence." At federation headquarters it is said that 20,000 men are on a strike. Strike Leader Is Arrested. Duluth, Aug. 1. The crisis in the strike of the ore dock employes Is at hand, and it is predicted that by Thursday morning at the latest it will be seen whether the strike will be over or just begun in earnest. "While the officials of the Steel cor poration still continue their concilia tory attitude toward the strikers, it is not. believed that they will hold open to them an opportunity to return to work more than twenty-four hours. Draft Reply to Men. There is unquestioned basis for the statement that a reply has been draft ed in answer to the last communlc* tlon of the strikers announcing the!* willingness to go to work upon the ap pointment of a committee of arbitra? tion to settle the differences betweet the men and the company. This reply will be delivered to the men early thla morning. It is understood that the let ter will assert the willingness ot th« company to meet any of their em ployes Individually or as a committed to discuss with them any points in dispute which the men feel should be adjusted after they have resumed work, but at the same time pointing out* where they consider that arbitra tion does not concern the main issues between the men and the company. Will Close Negotiations. The Associated Press is in a posi tion to state that-this letter will defi nitely close the negotiations with -th# men on the part of the United States Steel corporation, and Bhould the men then decline to return to work the Steel corporation will proceed at once to make preparations to resume opera tions on the docks with such labor as It may have at its command. It is understood from those in the confidence of the men that the latter will return to work and leave the ad justment of grievances to the fair ness of the officials. The labor leaders assert that the men will not be molest ed if they want to return to work. Last night it was learned that about all of the men who have been stopping at West end hotels and supposed*to have been brought in as strike break ers, in case the dock strikers refused to return to work, have disappeared and that they are housed in boarding cars on the ore docks. It Is estimated there are enough men ooperate the docks. In police circles it Is learned that there is unusual activity in pre paring for protection for the men who go to work. Labor Leader Arrested. The only incident on the range out of the ordinary occurred yesterday morning, when Petriella. the strike leader, was arrested and placed in jail at Hibbing on a charge of carrying concealed weapons. He was bound over to the grand Jury at the Septem ber term of court in the sum of $1,000. Bail was promptly furnished by offi cers of the Western Federation and he was released. There was scarcely a rlDDle of excitement AVAP tho NRRAO* Black Hand Gang Taken Newcastle, pa., July 31.

HUM AND HIS BMW mMCIED CHARGED WITH CAU8ING DEATH OF THE BANKER'8 FIRST WIFE. SK COUNTS AGAINST EACH CROWDS FOLLOW THE PRIS ONERS IN THEIR WALK TO THE JAIL, --V Clinton, 111., Aug. 4.—The grand Jury which has been investigating into the death of Mrs. Pet Magtll, the first wife of Fred Magill, a banker, who wLh his second wife is in jail here, having been brought back from California to an swer the charge of having caused the death of Mrs. Pet Magill, yesterday returned ohe Indictment against Ma gill and one indictment against Mrs. Faye Graham Magill. The Indictments were exactly alike, each containing six distinct counts. The six counts in each are aB follows: That Mrs. Pet Magill was murdered by the administration of strychnine poison that the murder was done by arsenic that she was smothered with a quilt that she was strangled to death by chloroform that she commit ted suicide as the result of a compact and agreement with the defendants and by their advice and counsel that her death was caused by the defend ants, by some means unknown to the grand jury. Followed by Crowd. Magill and his bride of four weeks were in the crowded court room when the indictments were returned. As soou as the indictments were filed the prisoners were hurried out of the court room and locked in an ante room with tiie sheriff's wife, where they remained until court took a re cess. As the prisoners, escorted by the sheriff and his wife, came out of the court house a thousand men, wom en and children surrounded them, eager to see Magill and his wife. Sev eral men called out, "Hello, Fred!" to which Magill replied,, but neither of the prisoners paid much attention to the crowd that followed them during their walk of five blocks to the jail. Ask Early Trial. During the afternoon session Judge Cochran susta4ned a motion to quash the sixth count of both Indictments. He overruled the motion to quash the other indictments, holding that they were good. The defense immediately filed a mo tion to consolidate the two cases, so that both husband and wife would be tried together, and the court took this under advisement. The defense then asked that the cases be set for trial as speedily as possible, .and Judge Cochran announc ed that Nov. 9 would be the earliest possible date, but after considerable argument of this subject the judge ad journed court until to-day, when he will decide whether the trials shall be gin next week or in November. The defendants were then arraigned and pleaded not guilty. LOVER IS POOR SHOT. Bullet Meant for Target Hits Sweet heart in Leg. .Marshalltown, Iowa, Aug. 4.—Jacob Reisinger of this place finds that the old adage that the course of true love never did run smooth Is a little rough er in his case than the usual run.

WHEN CHIPMUNKS 8ING. Vocalize in Spring at a Rate of 130 x' Chirps a Minute. The chipmunk is not usually consid ered much of a songbird, but according to Ernest Thompson Seton he is quite a success in a vocal role. Iu Manitoba the chipmunk comes above ground about the first or second week^of April, says Mr. Seton in Suc cess. Mounted on some log or root, it reiterates a loud, e.liirpy "Chuck-chuck chuck!" Other chipmunks ruu forth into the sunlight, and seeking some, pert-li add their "Chuck-chuck-chuck," to the spring salute. They are active from this time of the year on, and their sunny morning chorus is not by any meaus confined to that original outburst. On April 29, 1905, at Cos Cob, I heard a chipmunk in full song He kept It up for eleven minutes with out ceasing, and uttered 130 chirps to the minute. He got no reply, though he worked very hard and seemed tired toward the last. On May 28, 1905, at Cos Cob, I heard a chipmunk singing. He kept It up for three minutes, utter ing three chirps to the second. ,. FEARFUL BURNING 80RES. Boy In Misery 12 Years—Eczema In Rough 8cales, Itching and In flamed—Cured by Cuticura.

Practicable Range Only About Ten Miles at Present. Wireless telephoning haB been mak ing steady progress of late, although its achievements are still far behind those of wireless telegraphy. The range of practicable wireless telephony is as yet only ten miles or so. Ona reason for this, says the Review of Reviews, is the feeblenesB of the electric currents used in telephonic conversation over wires as compared with those that are capable of being used in telegraphing either with or without wires. Telephonic conversation has nevei yet been successfully carried to a dis tance of 100 miles of submarine cable under the ocean. The limiting tele phonic range over such cables has been about sixty miles. Consequently wireless telephony does not have to be carried to many times itB present range in order to beat wire telephony on submarine cables. The conditions are, however, very different over land. Wire telephony Is commercially practised up to dis tances of 1,500 miles, and is capable of being extended by, sufficient ex penditure ot money on the wires to 2,500 miles, or even more. Wireless telephony has, therefore, to be vastly extended in range in order to beat the record of wire telephony over land. 80AKED IN COFFEE Until Too Stiff to Bend Over. "When I drank coffee I often had sick headaches, nervousness and- bil iousness much of the time, but when I went to visit a friend I got in the habit of drinking Postum. "I gave up coffee entirely and the re sult haB been that I have been entire ly relieved of all my stomach and ner VOUB trouble. "My mother was just the same way. We all drink Postum now, and with out coffee in the house for 2 years, we are all well. "A neighbor of mine, a great coffee drinker, was troubled with pains in her side for years and was an invalid. She was not able to do her work and could not even mend clothes or do any thing at all where she would have to bend forward. If she tried to do a little hard work she would get such pains that she would have to He down for the rest of the day. "At last 1 persuaded her to stop drinking coffee and try Postum Food Coffee and she did so and has used Postum ever since the result has been that she can now do her work, can sit for a whole day and mend and can sew on the machine and she never feels the least bit of pain in her side, in fact, she has got well and it shows coffee was the cause of the whole trou ble.
