named in true bills voted at a special
session of the grand jury in connec
tion with the slaying of Terrance Ly
• ons, an acting police lieutenant, ac
cording to George E. Gorman, assist
ant state’s attorney.
Among those named In the |true
bills, according to Mr. Gorman, were
Fred Mader, president of the Building
Trades Council. Big “Tim” Murphy, of
the Gas Workers' Union and Cornelius
(“Con”) Shea, who directed the team
sters strike in 1904. All of them now
are in the custody of the police, hav
ing been captured in a spectacular
series of raids on various union head
quarters.
Treason is Charge
Describing crime conditions in Chi
cago as “a reign of terror” and “akin
to treason in time of war.” Judges
Kickham Scanlan and Joseph Davis
refused to release on writs of habeaus
corpus any of the 140 labor leaders,
union members and gunmen held by
the police in connection with the slay
ing of two patrolmen at the culmina
tion of a series of labor bombings.
In refusing to honor writs for sev
eral labor lenders seized In police raids
the two judges expressed their horror
at the murders, bombing and lawless
ness which have marked opposition to
the Landis wage award in the build
ing trades.
“We are in a state Os anarchy that
approaches in Intensity the condition
that existed during the Haymarket an
archist riot.” declared Judge Scanlan
in the criminal court.
“l*he whole function of government
seems to be broken down,” said Judge
Davis in the supreme court.
“If the men were a part of a con
spiracy to take human life they are as
guilty as those who fired the guns and
threw the bombs. They should be
convicted and hanged.”
In repeating his declaration of war
against the “hoodlums and ex-convicts
who go about posing as leaders of
labor,” Charles Fltzmorrls. chief of
the police pointed to the crime record
of the past 24 hours. “That should
prove to Chicago that the sluggers and
thugs we rounded up in raids on union
offices are responsible for the nightly
outbursts of crime,” he said.

Informs Powers Nothing Will bo
Gained by Prolonging Genoa
Economic Conference
Paris. —Premier Poincare late Fri
day renewed, and also strengthened,
his original instructions to M. Barthou
at Genoa. He is understood to have
told M. Barthou that he must not en
ter into any negotiations whatsoever
with, the Russians.
He also told M. Barthou to make
clear both in the subcommission and
the plenary commission, that the view
of the French government Is that noth
ing more is to be gained by prolong
ing the conference.
Refuse to Sit With Reds
The French government will not
agree to French experts sitting on any
commission with the Russian experts,
being of the opinion that exchanges of
views with the soviet delegates will
lead to nothing: but in deference to
certain susceptibilities, the French
delegates might accept an early meet
ing in some other city between allied
experts commissioned to study the best
methods for dealing with the Russian
problem. It is also felt that repre
sentatives of the United States should
be present at such meetings.
Should France take the initiative In
winding up the conference according to
Information received here Belgium,
Poland and Denmark; and’ possibly
other powers would follow her lead.

PASSION PLAY AGAIN
STAGED IN BAVARIA
____________ 1
Thousands Witness Initial Presenta
tion of Dramatization of
Christ’s Life
Oberammergau.— Sunday saw the
first public performance since 1919 of
the world renowned “Passion Play”
with the highlanders of this Bavarian
village as the actors. In the wake of
the most cruel and extensive war of
history the revival of the pageant
dramatization of the life of Christ
came to an audience of some 4,000 per
sons in what seemed particularly ap
propriate sequence to the conference
nt Washington and Genoa.
It was pointed out that while nt
Washington and Genoa the expert po
litical and economic builders of the
world conferred on the reconstruction
of good will among men. the represen
tatives of the four corners of Christen
dom were beginning the season’s pil
grimmages to Oberammergau to wit
ness the established interpretation of
the foundation on which their religious
structure was based in the career of
the Man of Galilee.
“I hope the Passion Play will con
stitute a basis from which more friend
ly intercourse between nations will re
sult in better international understand
ing” said Anton Lang, who plays the
role of Christ.
Lang's every gesture and his attitude
on or off the stage, personifies a man
of pence and his personality reflects
the devout character and sturdy ideal
ism which since 1633 has guided the
villager's devotion in presenting the
play every decade, except for a few
necessary Interrfiptions.
Thousands of tourists are here for
the Passion Play. Those who had been
privileged last week to witness the
final.dress rehearsal commented freely
on the undoubted effect of the sur
rounding natural beauty on the yearn
ings of the villagers of Oberammergau
for the higher things in life. The ma
jestic peaks of the Bavarian Tyrol in
which Oberammergau is pocketed seem
like solemn sentinels guarding its
unique enterprise from the material
ism of Hie world outside.
The bells of the parish church which
Sunday, summoned the inhabitants to
the last mass before the opening of the
Passion Play season Saturday tolled
the final rites over a prominent mem
hereof the cast, Anton Mayr, who
played the part of Disciple. Thomas
Mayr caught a cold rs fortnight ago
while rehearsing on the outdoor stage
during the severe weather and died
Thursday. He leaves a family of five
children, all of whom will continue io
participate in the play.
COAL OUTPUT GAINS
HALF MILLION TONS
Production Last Week Greatest Since
Walkout of Miners; One Killed
in Utah Fight
Washington.—Reports on bitumin
ous coal production indicate a current
output of 4,500,000 tons a week the
geological survey reported Monday,
adding that this was a total greater
than at any time since the miners
walked out on April 1. In all the
unionized districts in the country an
thracite production during the week
ending May 13 remained practically
nil the report said. The survey's re
port indicated that lack of marked de
mand continued the principal factor In
holding down production. Estimating
that consumption of bituminous coal
now was around eight million tons a
week, the survey said three and a half
million tons were being taken a week
from the surplus socks put in storage
by consumers in anticipation of the
strike. For the week ending May 6,
complete coal production figures show
an output of 4,161,000 tons of bitumin
ous, and (1,000 tons of anthracite.
Approximately 700,000 tons of coal
are held in railroad cars around the
mines, awaiting buyers, the survey
found.
The greatest increase In operations
during the last week was noted In Ken
tucky and West Virginia.
Utah Miner Killed
Salt Lake City.—John Tenas, Greek
miner of Helper, Is dead and R. T.
Young, special deputy sheriff, who
lives in Huntington, is in the hospital
with a bullet wound in his thigh, as a
result of a clash in the Spring Canyon
Monday in which, apparently, only the
two were concerned. Young, who is in
the custody of the sheriff of Carbon
county, claims that Tenas shot him
first with what he thought was an
army Springfield rifle. Witness of the
affair, however, do not agree with this
story and say that Tenas did not even
have a gun when he was shot and
killed by Young.
Tong War Grips Seattle
Seattle. Seattle’s Chinatown is
aflame with excitement following
the shooting of Frank Louie, 47,
veteran Chinese merchant, by a rival
Tong man. Louie was not seriously
wounded, the bullet breaking his right
leg. but police fear the attack may
cause another outbreak of the Tong
war which has terrorized the Chinese
colony here for months.
Louie, a member of the Bing Tong,
has been in seclusion for weeks. He
ventured out for the first time Monday
and was fired at from a doorway.
ANCON DISPUTE MEET
OPENED BY HUGHES
Chile and Peru Will Attempt Settle
ment of 40-Year Controversy
Over Treaty
Washington.—ln atmosphere of
renewed hopefulness the plenipoten
tiaries of Chile and Peru met Monday
in the Hall of Americas to attempt so
lution of the difficulties that have es
tranges! their governments for more
than a generation.
Convened in Washington at the in
vitation of President Harding, the con
ference was opened with an address
of welcome by Secretary Hughes, de
livered In tlte presence of a notable
gathering of government officials and
diplomats from every part of the
world. Response tfas made for Chile
by Luis Izulerdo and for Peru by Mel
iton Porras and then the two delega
tions retired for private consultation in
their new effort to apply the “Confer
ence plan of diplomacy to international
relationship of the Western Hemis
pheres.”
Although the seriousness of the prob
lem is everywhere realized, there was
a feeling here that the delegates would
come together under conditions notably
auspicious. Both governments ap
proached the negotiations in a spirit
of amity regarded in diplomatic circles
as so unusual as to give much promise
of a settlement.
At the same time, among the dele
gates themselves, and among officials
who have intimate knowledge of the
40-year controversy over the treaty of
Ancon, there has been apparent a ten
dency to warn against overconfidence.
Quick results are not expected and
there are some who believe that in the
end thf outstanding issues must be left
to arbitration.
It now is considered improbable that
the United States will in any way be
represented in the negotiations unless
arbitration becomes necessary and both
delegations agree to appeal directly to
President Harding.

president of the Chicago Building
Trades council, and more thsu i.v;
other labor lenders are being held after

tacular raids on various union head
quarters.
Tlie roundup resulted from the mnr
der of two patrolmen and the wound
ing of another in a running pistol fight
in which the killers eluded the police
Ihe two murders followed the bombing
of two buildings, the culmination of a
series of disorders believed by the po
lice to have been due to labor warfare
in the building trades.
In ordering the raids. Charles C.
Fltzmorrls, chief of police, declared
that some of the labor leaders were
just as guilty of the murders of the
treo policemen as were the anarchists
of the Haymarket riots. He character
ized the killings as “slaughter" nnd
termed the labor leaders “hoddlums
and ex-convicts.”
The list of those taken Into custody
included the names of some of the
men who have been known for years
hk the leaders of labor In Chicwigo.
Among them were "Big Tim" Murphy,
president of the Gas Workers Union,
and Cornelius “Con" Shea, leader of
the teamsters' strike in 1904. Murphy,
known as Chicago’s lender organizer,
has been out on ball after haring been
sentenced to seven years In prison in
connection with the $360,000 Union
Station mail robbery.
The raids came ns a complete sur
prise. the first being made on the
headquarters of the building trades’
council where a squad of men from the
detective bureau suddenly appeared at
the entrance of the building. The
raiders slammed the doors and then
kept them shut with threats of shoot
ing. A score of labor leaders were
found closeted in conference. They
were taken into custody. and ail the
books and documents In the office
seized.
Raida continued on other headquar
ters and saloons known to hare heen
used as hangouts by notorious sluggers
and gunmen who have been connected
by the police with many recent bomb
ings and shootings. Scores of men
were arrested in these minor raids and
n large supply of pistols, sawed-off
guns, and ammunition seized.
The ndght’s reign of terror and blood
shed. which resulted in the raids,
started shortly after midnight when a
bomb was exploded in a garage caus
ing damage estimated at $6,000. It
was hurled through a rear window. It
was said that the company had been
employing glaziers under the Landis
wage award. A short time afterwards
a policeman guarding the plant of the
Sharp nnd Partridge company, where
there hnve heen labor troubles, saw an
automobile stop near the curb. There
were three or four In the car and one
of them shot and killed the patrolman
ns he approached to inspect the ma
chine, which then was driven rapidly
away.

tributed by the police to dissatisfac
tion on the part of certain unions with
