PRESIDENT IS TOLD OF HIS MISTAKES Chicago Federation of Labor Declares Rcosevelt Hon est and Humane, but Uninformed—Chief Executive Announces That He Will Not Be Dictated to or Intimi dated by Unions in Miller Case. CHICAGO, Sept. 20. — President Roosevelt today was voted by the Chicago Federation of Labor a 9,000 ■word letter of advice in which fault Is found with the president's attitude on the question of open shops. The letter was prompted by the de cision of the president in the Miller case, in which he said that Miller or any other man must not be discharged from the government printing office on »■ count of non-membership in a union. "Deliciously unaware of the hypoc risy of the world of finance," "honest and humane, but uninformed," were some of the clauses used to describe the president in the long letter of the open shop committee. Its opening paragraphs contained a definite disclaimer of any wish to at tack Mr. Roosevelt, the blame for the chief executive's attitude in the Miller affair being placed on "a coterie of cer tain well known interests which are constantly on guard around the White house." The president was told that he fell Jnto error in his view of the question, '"because of that impetuosity for which we love you." A copy of the communication will be forwarded to Oyster Bay at once under date of Labor Day, Sept. 7. The reading of the letter before the federation meeting today occupied over TRACY MAN HUNT IS REPEATED IN NEBRASKA Sheriffs, Detectives and Farmers Vainly Pursue Thomas Madi> son, the Murderer of Three Smith County Women. OMAHA, Neb., Sept 20. —Four days' search by sheriffs, deputies, detectives and farmers, In posses aggregating 200, foi Thomas Madison, believed to be the murderer of three women in Smith county last week, has developed feat ures similar to those in the Tracy man hunt on the Pacific coast. Madison is as mysterious in his hid ing places as Pat Crowe. Special tele giams from Cowles and Hastings tell of a family compelled at the gun's muz zle to furnish him with food, and of a bold assault on a farmer named Hyatt, whom he compelled to drive him a mile off the path of the posses. Madison has BURN EDITOR'S HOME South Dakota Cattle Thieves Start on the War Path. Special to The Globe. SIOUX FALLS, S. D., Sept. 20.—Some of the cattle rustlers, who for years have infested Lyman county on the Missouri river in the central portion of the state, appear to have decided upon Kentucky methods to drive from that region men who have the .courage to demand that cattle stealing in the county must cease. E. L. Senn, a pioneer Dakotan and editor of the Pioneer, a weekly nevvs psper published at the little town of lona, in the southern part of Lyman county, has for some time been de nouncing the cattle rustlers and de ir&nding that they be brought to jus tice. By reason of his strong and per sistent pleas for law and order he has made himself so obnoxious to some of the cattle thieves that they decided upon revenge. This assumed the form of a midnight visit to the farm of the editor, situated a few miles from lona, where the in cendiaries, during the absence of the editor and his family, set fire to and destroyed every building on the place. The loss to the newspaper man was considerable, as he had no insurance on any of the property which was de- Btroyed. Editor Senn, with his family, recently established their permanent residence at lona, abandoning the farm, and a man had been engaged to move the belongings to their new home. For tunately, the library, documents and Borne furniture and clothing had been moved prior to the raid of the "fire buss." An examination the next morning »>ho\ved that horsemen, how many could not be told—had ridden up to the farm and tied their animals to a fence near the buildings, afterwards departing. Cattle had partially obliterated the tracks made by the horses, so the trails could not be followed. Tho immediate effect of the de struction of Senn's property will be to very materially strengthen the hands of Sheriff Pickett. State's Attorney Bartine and other officers of the county vrho, since assuming the duties of their offices the first of the present year, have been waging a relentless warfare against the rustlers, a number of whom already have been landed in the Sioux Falls penitentiary, with another "bunch" In sight when the next term of stale circuit court is held.

Dispatches from Oyster Bay say President Roosevelt has declared he will not be dictated to or intimidated by the labor unions in the case of Bookbinder Miller, now at work in the government printing office. The president has received a set of unfriendly resolutions from the Cen tral Labor union, of Washington, and has sent to the secretary of the organ ization a formal reply, which is merely to the effect that he has received the communication. It is not probable that the president will vouchsafe any fur ther answer to the union, but undoubt edly take some measures soon to coun teract the effect of . the antagonistic action. "It may be stated emphatically and almost officially," says the dispatch from Oyster Bay, "that President Roosevelt will not accede to the de mand of the union by ordering the dis missal of Miller. The president is a member of one of the affiliated bodies and is in thorough sympathy with all the legitimate aims of the men who toil. He will not, and cannot, however, allow the unions, as he regards the question, to over-ride the laws and the rules of the government departments, simply because they are unions and have power at the polls. "President Roosevelt announced to a friend several weeks ago when the Mil ler case came up that rather than to accede to such demands he would go down to defeat." subsisted four days off corn on the ear. This explains why he keeps in the cornfields. Ears partly eaten were found by pursuers. A message from Guide Rock, by way of Hastings, says that Madison was seen there driving a team so tired the horses could hardly move. He was al most to the state line. The team cor responds to the description of one a farmer named McConkey maintains Madison stole from his stable while he was too frightened to offer resistance. Lynching is certain if Madison is caught, but his escape 1 is probable, ac cording to the latest reports. TROUBLE FOR PARKS Famous Labor Delegate May Be Ignored at Kansas City. KANSAS CITY, Mo., Sept. 20.—Sam Parks, of New York, arrived in this city tonight to attend the convention of the International Bridge and Struc tural Iron Workers, which will meet here tomorrow. His arrival aroused much activity among the delegates al ready here, an activity which presages a lively fight when the committee on credentials shall report to the con vention in the morning. Parks is a member of Local No. 2, which was suspended by President Buchanan aft er Parks' recent imprisonment, and an* other local union, No. 2, was estab lished. The executive committee of the organization did not ratify the action of President Buchanan, and Parks and his partisans assert that the action of the president is therefore null and void. The local union of which Parks was or is a member, in New York, has sent a delegation, of which Parks is a mem ber, to the convention, and the local union which was organized after Parks and his local union was suspended also sent a delegation. The strength of the Parks and anti-Parks factions in the convention will be decided when one of these contesting delegations shall be seated. Charles D. Wilson Marries. CLEVELAND, Ohio, Sept. 20.— Charles D. Wilson, manager of the Ward & Yokes company, was married today to Miss Dorothy Bidd, a member of the company, the ceremony being performed by Rev.

CHICAGO, Sept. 20.—Nathan, son of Louis F. Swift, the packer, died to day from the effects of a play on the temple with a polo ball at Onwentsia field, during a game. The accident was at first thought to be trifling. Swift was playing in a contest in which his companions were Frederic Mc- Laughlin, W. W. Rathbone, Walter Farrell, Sidney Love, Walter Keith, R. R. McCormick and Charles Garfield King. The ball which struck Swift, was one that went high in the air and from the mallet of Mr. Love. Swift did not appreciate his danger until too late, the glare of the sun preventing him from following the ball in its flight. When the ball hit him he did not fall from his saddle and when his compan ions went to his side, he was at first inclined to make light of the injury. He was induced to dismount, but walked without aid from the field. Ar riving at home he complained of dizzi ness, and later he went into a delirium, which was followed by his death. The accident which resulted in Mr. Swift's demise, occurred yesterday af ternoon. During the night an opera tion was performed to relieve a rup tured blood vessel near the brain. The operation, which was performed at the country home of the Swift family, "West Leigh," in Lake county, seemed to give relief, but the effect was only temporary. Three physicians worked over him constantly until the end. Nathan Swift was born in Chicago, in 1881. He was an enthusiastic ath lete, being especially devoted to foot ball and polo. Music Hall Singer Murdered. PARIS, Sept. 20. —Eugenic Fourgere, a well known music hall singer, was murdered during Friday night in her villa at Aix-les-Baines. A female ser vant was also murdered and another was so maltreated that she has lost her reason. Robbery was the motive for the crime. LINARES A DEAD CITY Mexican Town Practically Wiped Out by Yellow Fever. MONTEREY, Mex., Sept. 20.—Dr. Roy Martin, quarantine inspector for the government, who recently returned from Linares, declares that the city is dead commercially and practically dead financially through the prevalence of yellow fever. There are less than 10, --000 people in Linares and there are fully 2,000 persons sick from various ailments. Recent advices from Vasquez state that few cases exist in that district. The authorities of Victoria feel that they have now stamped out the ail ment. Mr. J. D. Leonard and R. F. Murphy, road and bridge contractors on the Mexico & Monterey railway, report a destitute condition existing among the different construction camps along the road. He says there is scarcely a camp along Lhe line without yellow fever and there are many deaths. As these camps must be centers of infection it would be well to close them up until the epidemic has passed. Tampico is steadily diminishing the number of cases of yellow fever, the average number of cases weekly now being seven. Quarantine at Laredo. LAREDO, Tex., Sept. 20.—This city is still maintaining a vigorous quaran tine against Nuevo Laredo, Mex. Little news of a reliable kind can be secured from across the river. SULTAN FEARS A WAR Crafty Turk Drafts Decrees When Trouble Is Threatened. LONDON, Sept. 20.—The Balkan sit uation presents few new features to day. The German emperor's influ ence at Vienna is said to have been thrown in favor of allowing the sultan the utmost freedom in suppressing the insurrection. Both Turks and Macedo nians claim the victories in the daily encounters. A dispatch from Sofia states that Bulgaria's military preparations are reaching the stage of perfection that will enable the concentration of 200, --000 men on the frontier within a week and that the stocks of provisions, weapons and ammunition are rapidly becoming efficient. According to a dispatch from Con stantinople to the Daily Telegraph the sultan is so firmly resolved to avoid a war that on the report that France was sending a fleet to Turkish waters and again when it was stated that Bul garia was mobilizing he drafted a de cree forbidding massacres in Macedo nia and conferring more extensive local administrative privileges than had been demanded by the insurgents themselves, but on each occasion find ing the rumors unfounded the decree was rescinded. It is believed, however, that, should any power threaten a demonstration in Turkish waters, the decree will be signed. The Sofia correspondent of the Daily Telegraph gives a similar report that the sultan is ready to concede local autonomy, but will not grant interna tional control of a Christian governor to Macedonia. A dispatch from the monastery of Rila says the Greeks are joining the revolt in the districts of Menlik and Demi Hassir. The Constantinople correspondent of the Times declares that he has good authority for asserting that several Servian bands have already crossed the frontier and are now meeting in Mace donia. If Bulgaria fights Turkey, it will be difficult for Servia to lag behind, and it is quite clear that a Turco-Bulgarian war would not be bo one-sided as at first sight it appears. EITHER KILL i EDUCATE THE NEGRO Rev. S. G. Smith Arrives at This Solution of the Race Problem. The problem is ours and we must face It. The white men brought the n€gro here, and we must determine whether we will educate or kill them. It is of no matter to this country at large that a few black men are killed and dismembered, but the brutaliza tion of the mob which Is engaged in such an outrage is what we cannot stand. Booker T. Washington should not be taken as an example of the negro race, for he is anthropologically a freak. It would be well if the country had more of the freaks.—Rev. S. G. Smith. . * "It is of no matter to this country at large that a few black men are killed and dismembered, but the brutalization of the mob is what we cannot stand," said Rev. S. G. Smith last night in the course of his evening sermon, the sub ject of which was: "Must the Black Man Go?" In introducing his discourse, Dr. Smith said he would discuss the ques tion not from a Northern or Southern or a white or a negro point of view, but from a standpoint achieved by years of scientific study of the prob lem which he believed to be the most difficult which now confronts the American people. He compared the negro as he was found on the west coast of Africa, without law other than custom, with out political order beyond the tribal association under chiefs, and without order of family life even of polygamy, with the American Yiegro as he was at the close of the Civil war. Reviewing from this comparison what slavery had done for the black man, he said that It had welded the colored people of America into an or der which, although an order of sla very, was superior to anything they had known on the other continent. Only the young and strong and the physically sound were brought to this country as slaves, Mr. Smith said, and hence the four and a half millions who were here at the close of the war were the best body of block people on earth. In slavery they had been improved by being taught and cared for, and enlightened to at least some extent In the Christian religion, while in their own country they had never had any religion. Slavery Advanced Negro. "Slavery," he said, "left the black man immeasurably advanced, although it deprived him of any initiative he may have had as a barbarian." Mr. Smith briefly revlev-ed^ the Civil war and its cost in lives and money, which he said was a tremendous price to pay for the conquest of any idea, and a tremendous price for this nation to pay for the freedom of the black man. Mr. Smith said that he had thought, as a boy, when negro suffrage was first proposed, and he still thought as a man, that universal negro suffrage was one of the greatest mistakes of the nation. He believed it to be a great detriment to the white man and a great detriment to the black man. In spite of the $300,000,000 of proper ty in the South owned by negroes he declared that, ethically, the negro had not been a success. The negroes of the South showed only the lowest form of civilization, and those districts in Northern cities which were given over to negro population were the lowest quarters of those cities. ' He quoted statistics to show that among the negroes the death rate is much higher than among the white population, and the percentage of crime greater. He contended that the negro in America is retrograding and that If the conditions that have been accentu ating themselves more and more for the past thirty years are permitted to continue, there will be, in fifty years more, only a degenerate race festering in a dozen or more cities. As to the solution of the problem Dr. Smith said that.the coloniuation plan had been shown to be impracticable and that the question could not be settled by either home or foreign colo nization. Must Educate or Kill Them. "The problem,'' he said, "is ours and we must face It. The" whdte men brought the negroes here and we must determine whether we will educate or kill them. Lynch law, as it is called, -is an attack on all government and contrary to all law. Even the barbaric law of vengeance which preceded all written law, limited vengeance to the relatives of the man who had been in jured. If crime has been committed kill the man if need be; maim him if need be, but do it according to law, and administer the same punishment to white and black alike. It is of no matter to this country at large that a few black men are killed and dismem bered, but the brutai.zatioja of the mob, which is engaged in sucfa an out rage, is what we cannot stand." Mr. Smith argued tljiat crime, as an element among the negroes^ was not su much a result of slavery as of free dem under conditions- in iHiich the white man did not uwlerstand his re sponsibility. He believed that if the blanck man is to be redeemed from his present state, it must be by education of the negro children, and £hat educa tion must be more than school instruc tion. The negro children must be placed under sanitary conditions and In prop er moral and social surroundings and taught to work. Money must be sent from the North in millions of dollars to accomplish this object. Mr. Smith declared that the. Amer ican people must not expect the negro to accomplish In one Or two genera tions what had taken the white people 2,000 years to do. A people could not become great in one lifetime or two lifetimes, and probably it would be thousands of years before the present problem would be satisfactorily worked out. Calls Booker T. Washington a Freak. He said that Booker T. Washington should not be taken as an example of the negro race, for he watr anthropo logically a freak. He had been in formed that Booker Washington was part negro, part white and part Indian, and intellectually he had proved him self to be a freak, ft would be well if the country had mori of those freaks, but still it remained zt fact that Wash ington was not a rejjfesentative negro, but a freak. SKILL FRACTURED BY PITCHED BALL Member of Winnipeg Team Dangerously] nj ured in the Game Yesterday. William W. Kelley, second baseman of the Winnipeg ball team, was serious ly injured yesterday afternoon at Lex ington park by being struck on the head with a pitched ball while at bat in the eighth inning of the game with the Algona Brownies. Kelley was the third man to bat in the inning, the two men preceding him at the plate having been struck out by William Holland, pitcher of the Algona team. Four balls had been pitched to Kelley by Holland, when the pitcher threw the fifth which caused the in jury. The ball which struck Kelley was in tended for an outcurve, but the pitcher lost control in the delivery, and the ball, instead of curving before reach ing the plate, flew directly at the bat ter's head. Kelley stood still, and in an instant was struck behind the left ear and knocked senseless to the ground. It was at first thought that he was but slightly injured, and he was picked up and carried to the bench where cold water revived him and he remained seated upon the bench, for some time, but finally grew worse and a physician was summoned from the grandstand. The physician immediately saw the serious nature of the injury and advis ed the removal of Kelley to a hospital. The police ambulance was then called and Kelley was taken to St. Joseph's hospital. Is in Critical Condition. Kelley was in critical condition when he reached the hospital, but improved under the treatment of Dr. Philemon Roy and Dr. A. Schwyzer, who worked upon him for six hours. The physicians succeeded in bringing him to conscious ness at 9 o'clock and he was able to speak for a few minutes, but then re lapsed Into semi-consciousness, in which condition he remained most of the night. Dr. Roy said that the injury is not necessarily fatal, though it is extremely grave. "He is suffering from a concus sion of the brain and may have a clot Continued on Second Page. HONOR BEFORE COIN Palma Confident Cuban Sol diers Will Walt for Pay. SANTIAGO, Cuba, Sept. 20.—Speak ing today at the village of El Caney, close ta the scene of the battle between the Americans and Spaniards, Presi dent Palma urged the Cuban people to Jealously guard the ideals they had ob tained by means of intervention. The presidential party were enthusi astically received on their arrival at El Caney. The alcade having re marked that the gathering was mostly composed of veterans, President Palma assured them he wanted to pay the army as badly as anybody, because the payment was not only an act of justice, but was necessary to the reconstruc tion of the country. Nobody loved Cuban independence more than him self, continued the president. The only way to sacrifice the republic was to bring about a civil war. He believed there was not one veteran in a thou sand who would not prefer to maintain the honor of Cuba, even to the extent of forfeiting his soldier's pay. The Cubans, having accepted United States intervention as a means of ending their troubles, were under an obligation to follow those ideals and prove them selves a peaceable people. Speaking of the appearance of the band of insurrectionists near Santiago, President Palma condemned the hidden instigators of the uprising. The al cade declared that no one within two leagues of El Caney had joined the band. STRIKERS ARE UGLY Minnesota Men Sent to Colo rado Threatened by Miners. VICTOR, Col., Sept. 20.—As a num ber of non-union workers who were brought from Minnesota to take the place of striking miners were going to supper tonight, they were surrounded by about 500 strikers, who jeered at them as they walked along the street. A troop of cavalry was ordered to the scene and dispersed the crowd. Today delegations from the local G. A. R. and Woman's Relief Corps vis ited camp Goldfield, and were enter tained by the soldiers. In welcoming them Adjt. Gen. Sherman Bell made the following significant remark: "As long as the troops of the state of Colorado are in the field the American flag will be unfurled to float over this camp, all fall, all winter, all spring and all next summer if necessary." The Stratton Independence mine was started this morning. FILIPINOS BOUND FOR ST. LOUIS ARE HELD UP Immigration Authorities Detain Little Brown Men Headed for Big Fair. SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., Sept. 20.— Thirty-one Filipinos who arrived here last Thursday on the transport Sher man, on their way to St. Louis, where they were to be employed in the con struction of the Philippine houses and other buildings at the exposition, are detained on board the transport by the immigration authorities, because they are apparently liable to become public charges. Although armed with letters of identification from Manila, the thirty-one Filipinos are all in poor financial straits, and appear poorly equipped to continue on their journey to St. Louis. PRICK TWO CENTS. ?? V Z^ V . CIVILIZATION ASKS CANAL CONCESSIONS Governor of Panama Maintains That Grants Asked for, While Implying a Sacrifice, Are Mot Against the Na tional Dignity and Are Demanded by the Inter* ests of the World. PANAMA, Colombia, Sept. 20.—Sen ator Obaldia today took over the func tions of governor of Panama. The event was the occasion for great popu lar demonstration by all parties. It is thought that the appointment of Gov. Obaldia may perhaps exert influence against the secessionist ideas, not only because he i s% a native of Panama, which fact engages for him the sym pathies df all, but because his appoint ment apparently 5s a part of a general plan, the result of which will be the election of Gen. Reyes to the presi dency and the approval of a canal treaty favorable to the United States. Gov. Obaldia, in reply to Dr. Flor entine Goenaga, president of the high court of justice, said: "I maintain, because they were well mediated, the sincere opinions I ex pressed ac a senator of the republic. I consider that the interests of the world urgently demand the construction of a canal, and they have a right to ask our co-operation. The concessions, the ob ject of which is to serve these inter ests, though they may imply a sacrifice of sovereignty, are not against the na tional dignity. We cannot deny civil- VISIONS ARE FOLLOWED BY CHARGE OF MURDER Spirit off Husband Appears in Dreams off Lebanon Widow and Emphatically Denies Having Committed Suicide. LEBANON, Pa., Sept. 20.—Messages from the dead in the guise of dreams have inspired Mr. J. Marshall Funck and her husband's closest friend, Eli Attwood, to institute an Investigation into the death of Funck. A secret to his demise was the arrest of Constable John L. Fisher on a charge of murder- Ing the lawyer in his private office In Cumberland street on July 6. The burden of both visions was that Mr. Funck did not kill himself, but that John Fisher had a hand in his death. When this thought was suggested to Mr. Attwood he at once coincided. "I could see Mr. Funck as plainly as I see you," continued Mrs. Funck. "Our conversation was as rational and con nected as it well could be. Before I had the last dream I had dreamed of him several times, but there was always something between us—something that prevented us from conversing. He would look at me pleadingly as though he wanted to tell me something. At last one night Mr. Punck appeared. " 'Why,' he said to me, 'what are you doing here?' He clasped me in his arms and kissed me, and I was so happy that I cried. I knew that he was dead, but it was so pleasant to be with him again. He asked me about various things—business affairs. I told him I COL MEAD ARRESTED Mankato Veteran of Spanish War Charged With Larceny. Special to The Globe. MANKATO, Minn., Sept. 20. — Col. George W.

The meeting—the first con vention in the history of the island— brought together two hundred men in terested in the industry, every bank being represented, who pledged them selves to aid the movement to bring about better conditions. Acting Gov. Hartzell announced the receipt of a cablegram from Gov. Hunt, assuring an immediate discussion of the reciprocal commercial treaty with Spain, which would open the Spanish market now closed by the tariff. The planters are encouraged by the plans under discussion, which are di rected to reaching the retail trade In the trade in the United States.

Just what the nature of this is Dr. Herran and the the state department officials de cline to say on the ground that it is or a confidential character, but it is understood that it is in the nature of a proposition which will keep alive the canal negotiations with the Colom bian government after the expiration of Sept. 22, at Which time the existing treaty expires by limitation.

'You know,* I said, 'you were not here to do them for me.' 'No,' he replied, 'but I should have been if it had not been for what was done to me. You never believed that I killed myself, did you?' "I told him, 'No, never.' "'But Ray did, didn't he?' he said, meaning L. Raymond Reigert, his friend and secretary. "/Yes, I'm afraid he did,' I replied. " 'Well, I didn't, and you must not imagine that I did,' said he. " 'I know who did,' I told him. '"Be careful; don't be hasty,' he cautioned me. 'John Fisher did it.' "When I told Mr. Attwood about the dream he listened intently, and then informed me he had had a similar dream— several of them, in fact. The visions closely correspond. Fisher was the man indicated in each." Not until the substance of the dream had taken possession of Mrs. Funck did she permit her husband's body to be disinterred and examined. Mr. Atwood acknowledged his dreams concerning the fate of Funck had co incided with those of Mrs. Funck in all important particulars. His attitude in discussing the matter was no less sin cere than that of the woman. CHASING KID CURRY Posses Scoaring Mountain for Famous Train Robber. CHINOOK, Mont., Sept. 20.—Posses are scouring every section of the coun try in the vicinity of Bear Paw moun tain, after "Kid" Curry, the leader of the gang which held up two Great Northern express trains July 3, 1001, and who escaped from Knoxvllle, Term., jail, while awaiting transportation to the Ohio penitentiary to serve out a twenty years' sentence for forging sig natures to the stolen bank bills obtain ed in the robbery. The posses are com posed of men well acquainted with the country in which Curry is traveling and who are equally as quick on the trigger as he or any of his gang. It is many miles from where the search is being prosecuted to the nearest tel egraph point, and it may be days be fore anything is learned of what has happened. Curry has many friends in the country through which he is trav eling and will aid him to reach his rendezvous, and he will be safe in the fastnesses of Bear Paw mountain from molestation. When last heard from he was ten miles from Bear Paw mountain and mounted. As the possos only started today at noon the chances are all in Curry's favor. GOLD-CURE MAN BREAKS LOOSE WITH LOADED GUN E. E. McPeek Falls From Grace antf Shoots Keeley Institute Patient. Special to The Globe. SIOUX FALLS, S. D., Sept. 20.—The Keeley institute of this city was last night the scene of an attempted murder. E. E. McPeek, a one-armed man, whose home is at Gary, S.
