Summing up, the chief justice said there was not a suggestion through th" correspondence that Mrs. Schultz had given the prisoner the bills a s alleged.

WHEELING, W. Va., April 30.—Thurs day will be the last day of the Amalga mated association convention. The con vention spent i all morning on the re port of the committee on constitution and general laws." Many important changes were suggested and discussed. One of the most important matters con sidered was the proposition to change the system of dues. The dues now are 60 cents a month, and a resolution was offered to change to a system by which members would pay in proportion to their wages. The proposition was voted down. Considerable discussion was had over the proposed increase in the defense fund. It is now $25,000, and the propo sition is to 'increase it to $100,000. The most prominent members of the asso ciation favored the change, arguing that the last strike was lost because th as sociation did not have sufficient funds. Every effort was made by the association to keep its action on this matter secret. "it is learned, however, on reliable au thority that the resolution carried, and that steps will be taken at once to put the association in a position to carry on a strike for a year should one ever occur again.
