Various questions were discussed at the meeting of the school board last evening with, reference to the plans for providing for the Instruction of pupils residing in the various portions of South Rock Island recently annex ed to the city and school district, and President Cleaveland was authorized to arrange for a joint meeting with the directors of districts No. 42 and 43. to talk over the situation and make plans for the transfer of jurisdiction over the portions of those districts that have been annexed to the city.

Two sets of Investigators having found that the strikers' tent colony at Ludlow was wilfully burned and defenseless women and children killed by the state mili tia, the Colorado legislature, now in session, is thoroughly aroused, and a resolution is now pending for the ap pointment of a special commission of five legislators to investigate the en tire strike and the principles involved, with power to subpoena witnesses from all sides. The first investigation was carried on by the state military commission, who found, after a secret investigation in w hich state militiamen and others were questioned, that the state militia wilfully burned the Ludlow tent col ony, where two women and. 11 children perished, and looted the colony. These commissioners. Captain Philip Van Hise. Major E. J. Boughton and Cap tain W. C. Danks, all members of the Colorado militia, were named by Gov ernor Amnions.

Springfield, 111.. May 13. Illinois state officials manifested much sur prise when the law firm of Gillespie & Fitzgerald of this city hied w ith 'he state civil servic e commission a formal request to prosecute Secretary or State Harry Woods for violation of the state civil service law. James Burdett, chairman of tho commission, who was appointed by Governor Dunne soon after the govern or took his seat, stated that the com mission had taken the request under consideration, but declined to forecast what the decision would' be. "We regard the request as extreme ly grave," was all Mr. Burdett would say. Messrs.

Another reads: "There is no ques tion that the coal companies have vio lated every law on the statute books for the protection of their employes. From the commencement of their resi dence in this land of the free, these people from other lands have been made the victims of unbearable op pression." The women investigators paint a picture of cruelty against women in the Ludlow fight, after declaring that ! the battle itself was not started by' i any firing by the strikers, but by the exploslon of three bombs that Major Hamrock admitted were his own sig nal for the battle to begin. "The utter unpreparedness of the strikers for fighting," tlfTeport says, "is demonstrated by the fact that many of the women and children in the Ludlow tents were still in bed and were compelled to flee for their lives half dressed. "Fifty of these hunted women, we beg to state, were about to become mothers, and one unfortunate actually gave birth to her baby while trying ited with relatives and friends near Grinnell, Iowa, last week.

"Wholesale looting followed the massacre, and one of the pictures painted for us by homeless women was that of the soldiers carrying trunks to the station, dancing with stolen blankets about their heads to the music of a stolen accordeon and grabbinfs here and there in the tents for valuables." The report of the military investi gating committee appointed by Gov ernor Ammons declares that little Frankie Snyder was accidentally shot while .escaping from the Ludlow tents, but the women declare that the boy's father told this story "under the same compulsion that induced one striker to dig what he. thought to be .nis own grave." They assert that the small boy was shot while sitting in his father's tent with his baby sister In bis arms.. Far from being exaggerated, the women find that the published ac counts of tftie happenings in the strike regions tell only half the horror and declare that the militia who fought at Ludlow was hastily formed "out of the mine guards, mine employes, itinerant gunmen and slum sweepings, together with desperadoes under com mand of Linderfelt in Company B im ported assassins who masquerade as sons of Colorado in the uniforms of the national guard."

STOLE FUR FROM STORE Took Goods From Young 4. McCombs, but Later Dropped Them Oliver Whitted Pleads Guilty. "There seems little use for the coun ty to spend its money for the prosecu tion of criminals, when a jury will re fuse to convict in plain a case- as this," announced Judge R. W. Olmsted last evening when a verdict of not guilty was returned in the case of Har ry Morrison, charged with larceny. The jury got the case at 4 o clock. and returned a verdict of acquittal at 6:15. The defendant was charged with the theft of a set of furs and a trav eling bag, valued at $57, from Young & McCombs April 4. Witnesses swore to seeing the fur sticking out under Morrison's coat. However, before he left the store, he dropped it. The de fense alleged that Morrison had been, drinking and that he picked up the fur without any intention of theft, and then put it down again. C. S. Roberta was his attorney. It is understood that Morrison was one of the leaders in me aixempiec jail delivery, and that it wag in his cell that various tools were found and where the start was made to dig through a wall to liberty. Whitted Pleads Guilty. Oliver Whitted, charged with bur glarizing the store of John and Theo dore Ellingsworth, Port Byron, March. 16, 1914, stealing meats to the value of $16.05, plead guilty this morning to petty larceny, and was given 10 days in the county jail and fined $1 and costs.
