WAS MILES KECALLED EAST?
Conflicting: Statements In Conm'r
tion With the Report That He WsM
Summoned to Washington and
Might Be Court-Martialed.
Special to The Globe.
FORT RILEY. Kan., June 6.—Officers
et the post are talking of nothing today
but the sudden recall of Gen. Miles, a
report which was confirmed here today
by other members of the ordnance board.
It developed, according to one of the
party, that whereas all of them were
traveling on government transportation,
Gen. Miles and his secretary. Col. "Whit
ney, had been compelled to buy regular
tickets. Gen. Miles furnished the money
out of his private purse. The party came
as far West as Kansas City in a special
car. The general was a guest on the car,
for which one ticket was made to repre
sent all on board. When Kansas City
■•vas reached, the car was side-tracked,
and the journey here, 160 miles, made in
the regular sleepers.
"We did not know the depth of the
general's degradation," said one of the
officers today; "until we saw his secre
tary hand the conductor two regular rail
way tickets. The rest of us were all rid
ing on government transportation. We
could only surmise that Gen. Miles had
joined us without permission of the secre
tary of war and that he had been obliged
to pay his own fare.
"As the commanding general of the
army he is president of this board, but
as the object of dislike in the executive
department he does not seem to have
oeen able to secure the recognition we
did."
ALLEGED RECALL TO WASHINGTON
Contradictory Statements Leave tJio
Question in the Air.
CHICAGO, June 6.—Gen. Miles reach
ed here this morning. He Is alleged to
have said to a reporter for a local news
paper: "I have been ordered to Wash
ington. I am not going to the exercises
at West Point."
Gen. Miles left for Washington at o:Z0
p. m. Just before he left he said:
"I have been misquoted. I did not say
that 1 had been ordered to Washington.
I did say that I would not attend the
exercises at West Point."
Gen. Miles refused to be further inter
\iewed.
WASHINGTON, June 6.—Secretary
Root today stated that Gon. Miles has
not been summoned to Washington. The
general, it is said, is now en route J
from Fort Riley, Kan., to West Paint, in I
response to an invitation to attend the I
centennial celebration there next week.
Report had it that Gen. Miles was in ;
danger of court-martial on the charge of •
revealing war department secrets.
The statement attributed to Gen. Miles !
in Chicago, that he was called to Wash- j
ington, was exhibited to every officer of '
the war department who could by any j
possible means have handled any order |
to Gen. Miles, and by each and all of
them was positively denied. It is stated
that no person connected with the admln
istiation has sent any order to Gen. Miles
from Washington since his departure on
his present trip, nor has the war depart
ment communicated with him. The inti
mation Is that any recall, such as re
ferred to by Gen. Miles, must have come
from some of his personal friends or fam
ily.
It is explained in another quarter that
Gen. Miles only desired to see that por
tion of the field gun tests at Fort Riley
which took place the first day. After
that he intended to come East'again to
West Point, stopping at Chicago to look i
into some private matters, and again at
Syracuse, N. V., where an informal re
ception is to be tendered him by a body
of war veterans.

ANXIOUS DAYS IN
THE WESTERN UNION
Salary List Slashed, and Operators,
Keariug Reductions, Organize
for Protection.
NEW YORK, June 6.—During the last
few weeks the Western Union operators
all over the country have been very
active in forming an organization, and
there is a great deal of talk of a general
strike. The movement is said to have
started in New York and to have sp:eaj
air- over the country. The policy of re
trenchment and curtailment inaugurated
by President Clowry has caused the op
erators to fear a serious cut in wages,
and this, they say, they will not stand.
All over the country men who have
drawn good salaries in higher positions
in the company are being replaced by
cheaper men, and the operators fear
soon their turn will come. It is claimed
that the policy of the new management
is to force out all the men who have
been with the company for a long term
of years and replace tHem with younger
and more efficient men. This applies to
the men at the keys as well as to man
agers and the men above them.
It is said that a few days ago the
manager of one of the most important
branch offices of the company in New
York was informed that in future he
would receive only 60 per cent of his
usual salary. He had had charge of thy
office since the Civil war, had built up the
business, and he sent back word that in
that case the office would in ttve future
only do 60 per cent of the business it
had been doing. His salary has not been
reduced.
The local operators say that the new
rule providing for the payment of sala
ries every two weeks instead of every
week is in dlrct violation of the New
York law, and that the matter will be
taken into court.
President Clowry says he has nothing
to say for publication. The officers of the
company claim, however, that they have
no information that the operators are
contemplating a strike.
George J. Gould is flfven the credit
for havin§ placed Col. Clowry at the
hesd of the Western U^on. It is said
to be the ambition of Q£ management
to increase the profits *J the company

LAID LOW BY BLOW
Henry Weishans Murderous
ly Assaulted in Basement
of Kietzke's Drug Store
AFFAIR IS A MYSTERY
Young Man Goes to Basement With
Soda, for Engineer, and In
Fonnd Unconscious—
Likely to Die.
Henry Weishaus, a clerk in Reitzke's
drug store, corner of Selby and Western
avenue, was found in the basement be
neath the store, in an unconscious con
dition, last evening, shortly after It)
o'clock. There was an abrasion abovs
the right eye, and it ia thought that he
met with foul play. His recovery Is
improbable.
Welshraus was called into the bas jnr-nt
Shortly after 10 o'clock, and he had ap.
parently been unconscious for some time
before he was found. C. B. Nimo, head
clerk of the store, was the first to dis
cover him, and to the former Weishaus
i 3 alleged to have said that same one
had hit him. He rallied only for a mo
ment, and lapsed into unconsciousness
again soon after divulging this Informa
tion.
While there is no clue to work on in
the case, the police are confident that
Weishaus was foully dealt with. The-e
are many theories entertained, and there
are several people about the Albion
block, in which the Rietzke drug store
is located, who may know more about
the affair than they have yet intimated.
According to the story of Mr. Nimo,
young Weishaus received a telephone
communication from the engineer of the
Albion block about V) o'clock that two
sodas were wanted in the basement, one
for the fireman and one for himself. Ac
cordingly Weis-haus served the order and
conveyed it to the basement, leaving the
glasses until the contents had been dis
posed of.
Took Sodr-n to ?c.«emeiit.
Shortly after 10 o'clock he started for
the basement to get the glasses and re
turn them to the drug store, and that
was the last seen of him up. to the time
he was found by Mr. Nimo.
When found he was lying face down
ward in the doorway, between two stone
walls, and glasses were broken into
fragments. The engineer thought he
heard some one talking soon after Wel
haus left with the glasses, but he is npt
positive. He also noticed that the lights
were suddenly extinguished.
Searchew Instituted.
The elevator boy stepped into the drug
store and inciuired fcr young W^lshaus
shortly after 10, and was told that he had
gone to deliver some soda. Later he re
turned and asked again for WVisliauS, and
then the search was instituted that led
to his discovery.
Drs. Archibald and Davis, who reside
upstairs, were hastily summoned and the
young man was conveyed to St. Joseph's
hctpital. He was thought to be suffering
from concussion of the brain.
Weishaus is apparently twenty years
old, and had "been employed in the drug
store for several montha.

SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., June 6.— Up
wards of 1,000 lives have been lost and
half of the city of Rotalhulen, Guate
mala, has been destroyed by the erup
tion of Tacoma volcano, according to ad
vices received here todaju by the Chilean
steamer Palena, from Valparaiso and
way ports.
Ratalhulen lay several miles back from
Champerico, on the coast, and it was at
the latter city that news of the disaster
was secured. Earthquakes, it was said,
had continued at short intervals every
day since the great disturbance of April
13, when the city of Quezaltenango was
destroyed.
The shocks have been of sufficient
strength to ~eep the residents of the en
tire region in a state of terror and little
has been done to repair the damage done
■by them and the volcanic eruptions,
pumice stone and ashes thrown from the
ciater of Tacoma have spread a thin
coating over the territory surrounding
Champerico.
A few days before the Palena left
Champerico an earthquake destroyed a
small town near Guatemala City, but its
name was not learned.

Hamlin filed today at Belleville a suit

The defendant companies include those

CHICAGO, June 6.—Before he left Chi

parts of a plan which he has for increas
ing Oriental .traffic over the Hill railroad
and steamship lines.
Within a short time J. N. Hill, vice
president of the Great Northern, and son
of James J. Mill, will start on a lons
trip, in which all the important cities
and commercial centers in tne Orient will
be visited. It will be Mr. Hill's duty to
create sentiment in favor of Oriental
trade and to disseminate Information re
garding the Mill route between th\i O:lent
and the United States.
UiM'Ntlmi «m to Hi-turn Trip*.
Shortly Mr. Mill will place In service
two mammoth freight boats which have
been building for some time and which,
are destined for the Oriental traffic be
tween -Mirth Pacific coast points and the
large cities of the far East. There will
be no trouble in filling these boats for the
trip from the United States to the Orient,,
but it may be a different proposition upon
the return trip.
What James J. Mill desires, and what
he expects J. N. Mill to do, la to exploit
the advantages of interchange of com
merce between the nations ami to edu
cate the shippers of the Orient regarding
facilities arid the possibilities of such an
Interchange.

J. W. Blabon, fourth vice president of'
the Great Northern, said today that a
great deal of missionary w* k In

that the Oriental trade was destined to

ever, may result In a decision by the Hill
interests to Increase their Oriental team
ship service beyond the present contem
plated limits.
it is expected that J. N. Hill will gather
data and complete information regarding
the situation in the Orient, the best means
of Increasing the trade and the tonnage,
and come back with a supply of ideas and
facts that will be of great service to the.
