CHICAGO, Nov. 22.—The teamsters

ever in the strike of the street car men.

When the order was first issued it
was declared by the associating team

Montana Woman Gets Fortune
From Mine Holdings.
Special' to The Globe.
BUTTE, Mont., Nov. 22. —Formerly
a widow with an income amounting to
a mere pittance, Mrs. George Tong has
Bprang into a fortune through the dis
covery of a very rich lead of gold and
silver. The ore streak is from seven
to eight feet in width and is as rich
as any ore to be found in Butte. The
mine is now yielding a monthly profit
of $30,000, and with an increased force
of men the revenues will be larger.
There Is a pathetic tinge to the
story- It shows that all bankers and
capitalists are not heartless, and in
stead of losing her property by the
foreclosure of a mortgage, she retains
It, and has a fortune in sight.
When George H. Tong passed away
he left his widow an estate consisting
mostly of mining property, all of which
was under mortgage to the State Sav
ings bank of this city. Some two years
ago C. W. Ellingwood wanted a lease
on the Goldsmith mine. He had made
a stake and dropped. The State Sav
ings bank, through T. M. Hodgens, its
cashier, gave him a lease on the prop
erty. Ellingwood agreed to pay 50 per
cent royalty if he found anything. Mrs.
Tong agreed to the lease, which was
given verbally and without any time
limit. It could be shut off any time.
Ellingwood struggled away on the
mine, cross-cutting in all directions,
and there were times when his capital
was so exhausted that he could not
meet his pay roll when it was due.
However, his men stuck by him, hav
ing confidence that he would make
good. About two months ago he was
rewarded by striking a rich body of
ore, which now gives every indication
of being continuous, and is being
Btoped from the 150-foot level upward.
A few days ago Cashier Hodgens
gent for Mrs. Tong. The widow re
sponded. She knew the mine was do-
Ing well, and she expected that her
banker desired to inform her that there
were several hundred dollars in the
bank to her credit to apply on the
debt of the estate. When she was no
tified that there were $22,000 to her
credit, the stroke of good fortune nearly
overcame the woman.
The question of a lease was then
brought up. Mrs. Tong said that, in
asmuch as Mr. Ellingwood has spent so
much money and time in developing
the mine and I etrievlng their fortunes,
he could have a lease on the property
as long as he liked.
THE ST. PAUL GLOBE
Tonight's meeting was to consider
this ultimatum and the result was a
refusal to comply with the demand.
President Shea advised the teamsters
against antagonizing the employers, but
his words went unheeded and the de
cision to ignore the ultimatum of the
employers was almost unanimous.
It was also decided to call a strike of
the teamsters employed by the R. H.
Jones Transfer company, who have
been making deliveries to the Chicago
City railway. This action, together
with the stand taken on the ultimatum
of the employers, it is believed, may
result in a general lockout or strike of
the 30,000 union teamsters employed
throughout the city.
The employers will hold a meeting
tomorrow to decide on what action will
be taken. While none of them would
discuss the matter tonight, still the
impression was given out that the
teamsters would be summarily dealt

DULUTH, Minn., Nov. 22.—News

in Steams county, which is said to be
of more importance than any other of
the recent discoveries which have been
made recently in Northern Minnesota.
Victor Stern, a well digger who was
employed in sinking a well on the farm
of Michael Schreifels, six miles south
of Cold Spring, Minn., encountered a
vein of coal twenty-eight feet below
the surface. Drill holes, which were
put through to test it, disclosed that
the vein was four feet thick. Samples
of the coal were taken to Cold Spring
and put to tests, demonstrating that
it was anthracite of an excellent qual
The discovery has caused consid
erable excitement among the people in
the vicinity of Shreifels' farm, and
many of them are preparing to sink
shafts on their own premises. Men
who are interested in the project will
make explorations in the vicinity of
the find in an effort to ascertain the
extent of the coal bed which has been
uncovered. . " *

Third Week of Coal Strike Finds

TO END SESSION
Have Practically Agreed to Vote
on the Cuban Bill
WASHINGTON, D. C, Nov. 22.—The
senate will begin the week in a state
of uncertainty as to whether a final
adjournment of,the extra session will
be secured during the week or the reg
ular daily sessions continued. A ma
jority of the senators are anxious to
bring the session to a close, and to
this end an agreement has been prac
tically entered into for a vote Dec. 16
on the Cuban reciprocity bill. The ac
quiescence of the house of representa
tives in the programme, however, has
not been secured, and until the two
houses reach an agrement no definite
announcement can be made. Leading
senators on the whole are rather con
fident that an adjournment will be
brought about, and say it will be Im
possible to hold a quorum of either
body after Thanksgiving.
JThe present understanding is that
a proposition to fix a day for adjourn
ment will be made by the senate on
Monday or Tuesday, whereupon it will
be formally conveyed to the house.
This will form a basis for negotiation
as thus far there has been no confer
ence between members of the two
houses on the adjournment question.
The understanding in the senate ia
that the day for taking a vote on the
Cuban bill will be fixed without regard
to the adjournment of the extra ses
sion. The bill will then be reported
by Senator Cullom, chairman of the
committee on foreign relations, and he
will ask that a day be fixed for the
vote, whereupon Dec. 16 will be named
if the present plan is carried out.
When the Republican senators secure
this agreement they will be compara
tively indifferent where the senate re
mains in session or not. They think It
preferable that the extra session
should come to a close, as many sena
tors desire to visit their homes before
the regular session begins, but if an
adjournment is not had there will be
a general agreement among senatoi-3
which will render it unnecessary for a
majority to remain in Washington. If
any considerable number of senators
desire to meet for the purpose of mak
ing and listening to speeches on the
Cuban bill they will be allowed that
privilege, with the understanding that
no other business shall be taken up.
If there are no speeches to be made
the senate will take frequent adjourn
ments for three days at a time, as
permitted by the constitution, without
reference to what the house may do.
There are a number of senators who
desire to discuss the Cuban bill, but
it is probable most of them will post
pone their speeches until after the
beginning of the regular session Dec. 7.
After being reported tomorrow the
Cuban bill. will lie on the table for a
day, unless there is unanimous con
sent that its consideration shall begin
immediately. When it is taken up
Senator Cullom will make a brief
speech in explanation of its merits, and
after he concludes there probably will
be no more addresses by friends of the
bill until toward the close of the dis

Former Commander of the Colombian Forces Declares
an Army of 100,000 Men Is Being Organized to March

PANAMA, Nov. 22.—Gen. Victor Sal
azar, formerly governor of the depart
ment of Panama and who during the
last revolution was supreme command
er of all the Colombian forces on the
isthmus, has been requested to give his
opinion concerning the present trend
of affairs on the isthmus, and tele
graphs as follows from Palmiria, in
the department of Cauca:
I consider the movement unworthy
and unpatriotic. I deplore it deeply be
cause in each Panaman I see a friend and
brother, and because for that land I would
wish only days of glory and welfare. The
road it follows leads to suicide and even
now It is not too late to reflect and save
Panama from the horrile consequences.
The departments of Cauca and An
tioquia and the whole of Colombia, with
out political or social distinctions, will
rise like one man to defend the national
integrity. Gen. Uribe-Uribe, Gn. Benja
min Herrera and all Liberals have offered
their services to the government. An
army of 100,000 men now being organized
and to be commanded by both Liberal
and Conservative leaders, will soon march
on the isthmus.
The fact that American help was
asked for and accepted by Panama
charactprizes the movement as treason

DOWIE TO USE SHIPS
Will Use Boats In Next New
CHICAGO, Nov. 22.—John Alexander
Dowie has decided to make his next in
vasion of New York in ships. He is
planning to embark the hosts of Zion
at Zion City in 1905 and sail to battle
with sin in Gotham. He plans to an
chor his ships in North river and make
his headquarters with the fleet while
preaching the doctrines of Zion.
The announcement of his plan was
made by Dowie yesterday in his ad
dresses to the mercantile departments
of the city. He was making a tour
of the different departments and giv
ing his farewell advice to his employes
before starting on his trip around the
world in January.
Dowie admitted the N£w York trip
had not been as productive as he ex
pected and stated that the expenses
were far above what he had counted
upon. He has figured matters down
so that he can take every one of his
Zion followers "to New York in 1905
by boat and the expense will be far
less than the recent trip. He figures
that It will take ten ships, and he said
he will start at once to negotiate for
the lease of vessels adequate to carry
all who want to go.
Dowie's plan is have all the ships
anchor in Ziori City harbor, which he
says will be built, and start from there
up the great lakes, through the St.
Lawrence, and by sea to New York.
He said every department in Zion will
be closed for this crusade and he will
take the entire printing establishment
force along in order that he may issue
a daily paper in New York.
In his talks today the general over
seer admitted that he was in the worst
financial crisis in his life, but he urged
his employes to stand by him "until my
ship comes in," and then he would give
them raises in salaries. He said he
wished they would all remain even
if he had to reduce wages a trifle. It
is said every employe in the city is
behind at least three weeks on his pay.
