Ilorr the StrlUo Started.
An organizer of the A. R. U. , who Is now
In Council Bluffs and Omaha from Sioux
Olty , tells a slightly different story as to
the causes lying behind the railway strike
from that usually told. According to him
there was a meeting of the General Man
agers association In New York City just
after the Great Northern strike was settled.
The A. R. U. got wind of tha proposed meetIng -
Ing and secreted a private defective In the
voom whereIt was to bo held. The detcc-
I've ' had to go In quite a while before the
IT- ' ) meeting , and It was nearly twenty-four
' hours later before ho had an opportunity
of leaving unobicrved. The peculiar nature
ot his hiding place rendered him somewhat
etlft and cramped , but although ho had been
compelled to do all his writing In the dark
ho had his notes In such shape that they
formed a complete history of the transac
tions of the managers.
At that meeting. It Is claimed , the gen
eral managers decided to put Into effect a
terrific cut In wages all along the lines.
Engineers were to be cut down to $2.50 per
day , firemen to $2 and conductors to $70 per
month. This fact 'having como to the ears
of the union , the members do not feel too
friendly toward the railway officials , and
that Is given as ono reason for the salaried
men acting with such unanimity In the
trlke. _

Six Jurymen , who have been for some
days past trying the case at George John
son against Webber , an Omaha man , In
the superior court , were compelled to sub
mit to a scoring at the hands of Judge
McGce yesterday morning on account of a
false Impression that seemed to have come
Into the heads of two ot them that they
knew more law than the court and had
the power to reverse his decisions. Joint-
ion was suing for a commission of $200
which he claimed was coming to him from
Webber for the sale of a piece of property ,
and the main question at Issue was whether
or not a contract for the payment of that
amount had been entered Into by the two.
In his Instructions to the Jury Judge Mc
Gce told them that It they found that there
had been any such contract they must re
turn a verdict for the full amount , but If
they did not find any contract , the verdict
must be for the defendant.
The jury retired and put In a long time
deliberating. Wednesday night they sent
word to the judge that they were unable to
agree , and asked to be discharged. Their
request was grunted. Yesterday morning
the six went to the superior court , thinking
they would be called upon to try another
case , but In the meantime the news had
reached the Judge that the reason for thu
disagreement was that two of the Jurors ,
Phillips and Barrett , had an Idea that he
had not laid down the law correctly. Other
Jurors said that the two refractory ones
would have been willing to give a verdict
for a less sum than $200 , but the four who
thought the court had the right to see his
Instructions obeyed , refused to accede to
their wishes.
When the Jurors showed up In court Judge
McGee Informed them that he had heard the
reason for the disagreement , and proceeded
to give them some Information as to their
duties. "If the Jurymen are to be allowed
to Ignore the Instructions of the court , "
said he In substance , "we might as well do
away with the bench entirely and let all
jury trials take place before the Jury alone.
If the Instructions of the court are wrong ,
there Is a higher court In which the fact
can be established without the assistance
of the Jurymen. The trial of this case has
cost the county $125 already , when there
was not enough Involved In the case In the
first place to more than pay the attorneys
on each side a fair and reasonable fee. You
go on and deliberate for days and nights
as to whether you shall obey the Instruc
tions of the court , and then finally bring
about a mlnstrlal because some of you think
you know more law than the court. "

Dr. I'lnnoy'rt Plan for Making Criminals Do
homo ( ioixl for Tlii-lr Country.
Dr. C. H. Plnncy of this city has a plan
which he Is going to spring on an unsus
pecting legislature the next time It meets
In Des Molncs , and by which ho thinks It
possible that some persons who have never
been of any use to anybody while alive
might be mode to serve humanity by being
dead. His plan , as ho outlined It to a Bee
reporter yesterday afternoon , Is somewhat
unique and decidedly Interesting , whatever
else may bo said of It.
"I am going to have a bill Introduced in
the legislature , " he said , "providing that
all persons In the state who are condemned
to death shall bo turned over to a board
of ten commissioners appointed by the
governor. These commissioners shall all
be medical men , and their duty shall bo to
apply the process of vivisection to the crim
inals give 'em chloroform , of course , and
then cut them to pieces. They could find
out just how long a person lived after a
certain operation had been performed , and
It ho showed signs of living right along
in spite of the operation he could bo sub
jected to another operation. In some cases
the criminal might subserve the cause of
humanity and * the medical profession by
being put through three or four operations.
1 don't know as such a bill would pass the
legislature , but I am going to have It drawn
up and presented , anyway. "

BUFFALO , Wyo. , July B. ( Special to The
Bee. ) The people of this town were treated
to a little excitement out ot the ordinary.
The streets were soon cleared of people , who
dodged Into doorways and alleys to escape
stray bullets fired from pistols In the hands
of two women duelists , Mrs. W. G. Angus
and Mrs. Eva Bye. Both of the participants
In the affair are quite prominent , and the oc
currence has created a great sensation. Mrs.
Angus Is the wife of "Red" Angus , the
Johnson county sheriff of rustler fame. Both
of these women have been at dagger's points.
It Is said , over a family affair , and trouble
has been expected some time. The duelists
evidently had not been doing any target prac
tice lately , for neither of them were hit , al
though a dozen shots were fired. After emp
tying their guns they retired to reload , but
were prevented from continuing further hos
tilities. Mrs. Bye hod Mrs. Angus arrested
and put under bonds to keep the peace.

HUNTER'S QUAYFlYth | ( of Clyde ) , July
5. Tlio regatta of tlj&\udhook ( Yacht club
today opened amid ft. . * fcenc of excitement ,
which was soon after Intensified by a col
lision between the Valkyrie and Sntnnltn ,
which resulted In the sinking ct
tlio former yacht and the serious
disabling of the Inttcr. Then , to
still further excite the masses ashora and
the people afloat , the llrllnnnla , which had
tlio best of the start , was overhauled und
passed by the saucy Vigilant.
A fever of excitement had prevailed pre
vious to the start for the Mulr memorial
cup race. No such Interest has ever been
thoun hero before In a yacht race , for the
American llyer , Vigilant , \vrs to meet for
the first time the prince of Wales' cutter
Britannia , admitted to be the fastest yacht
In all Europe. Kvery point ol vantage
about tlio course was packed with slght-
8e rB from early morning , and their num
ber was constantly added to as the day ad
vanced. The crouds flocked to the main
places from which the race could be best
seen In wholly unprecedented number. ' . The
natives , of course , fondly hoped that the
Britannia would win , but the British ex
perts looked blue and worn compelled to
admit that the American yacht stood the
best chance of winning and the British pride
would' have to take another drop before the
skill and enterprise of America.
Tlio Royal club course , sailed In the Mud-
hook regatta , Is fifty miles long and In
shape Is similar to two triangles with their
points meeting. The yachts started from
an Imaginary line drawn between the Royal
Clydo Yacht club headquarters at Hunter's
Quay and Mark Boat No. 1. The first leg
was around a mark boat off Skclmorlle ,
from there to and around another mark
boat off Ascog , thence to and around a mark
boat off Kllcreggan , and from there to the
starting point , twice around.
The start was fixed for 10:30 : , and at that
hour a fair wind was blowing. The Brltan-
Ala , Valkyrie and Satanlta lay at the city
iocho anchorage , a small bay clcso to and a
Ilttlo northward of Hunter's Quay. The
Vigilant stayed at Oourock bay during the
night , but shortly after 0 o'clock , with flags
flying proudly and under her topsail ] , the
American clipper sped across the bay , com
ing Smoothly through the water , which her
prow cut with a knlfellke sharpness. Never
did a yacht look trimmer or more fit for a
race than did the Vigilant this morning.
The smart , scamanllke appearance provoked
comments of general approval. The Goulds'
steam yacht Atalanta , with a large party
on board , followed the Vigilant. The
breczo then began freshening until a good
southerly wind was blowing and no doubt
remained that a fine .day's racing was In
prospect. The breeze had been coming up
the firth In gusts all ( ho morning , and the
experts said It woijld 'freshen and hold out
at least long enough f6r all yachting pur
" * *
But Just previous' fo 'the start the cloud ; ,
which had been gathering with the wind ,
grew stronger and a shower set In. The
boats set their main sails and top sails.
Lord Dunraven , with George. L. Wilson , the
designer , was steering the Valkyrie ; Mr. A.
D. Clarke , owner it t'fio Satanlta , was at
her stick ; Nat He'rrcschofT was at the
wheel of the Vigilant ? and W. H. Jamison
was the steersman kof Yho Britannia. The
start was made Ina "blinding mist , the
wind , however , still Holding good. The
Vigilant , Britannia andt Satanlta came up
In line on the port tacit to turn the mark
boat , while the Valkyrie raced down from
Holy loche. The Satnnitawas too soon by
half a minute. On , the other hand , the
Britannia was about to luff on the line for
a capital start. The Vigilant turned it
handsomely and was on the mark boat
shortly after gunfire. But the Britannia
was quicker and igot off thrco lengths
Then came the excitement of the day.
Two of the crafts , while preparing for the
start , became locked together , and In a few
minutes the Valkyrie settled down and
sank , while the Satanlta was so badly
damaged that she was obliged to retire.
Soon the people fully realized what had hap
pened. The Satanlta , It appears , was un
able to get out of the Valkyrie's way as
the latter was coming up on the starboard
tack. The Valkyrie's bowsprit ran acnrs
the Satanlta's foresail , and the colli
sion which ensued carried awsy the
Satanlta's bowsprit and topmast , leaving her
a wreck , covered with tangled ribbon and
collapsed sails. The force of the collision
cut the Valkyrie down to the water edge ,
arid she slowly settled and sank In three
Ashore , owing to the mist , It was diffi
cult to Immediately ascertain what had
happened , except that there had been a col
lision and that the Valkyrie had gone down.
Loud cries were heard from the crews of
the two yachts , and for a time It was feared
that a number of the crew of the Valkyrie
had been drowned. Happily this was not
the case , as Lord Dunraven , Watson and
the officers and crew of the Valkyrie were
picked up by boats which put out from the
shore and by the many sailing and steam
yachts In the vicinity of the i no of the
accident. Lord Dunraven was sight long
to be remembered when taken on board the
Hebe. Ho was no longer the spruce , dig
nified gentleman so well remembered In
The captain of the Satanlta said he did
not have room to turn , owing to the large
number of steam and other yachts which
gathered about the starting line.
When the Valkyrie began to fill some of
her crow jumped overboard , others were
taken off by steam yachts and tome
were picked up holding on to floating ob
jects , One of the Valkyrie's seamen had
his leg badly crushed. The Ill-fated
yacht lies In twenty-flvo fathoms of water.
In the meantime ihe Vigilant and the
Britannia had gotten away , not knowing of
the sinking of the Valkyrie or the damage
done to the Satanlta. The Britannia pitched
on to port to throw herself on the weather
beam. Both yachts then went across the
firth. On the starboard tack to the op
posite land , when they again tacked , the
Vigilant was pushing her bowsprit over
the Britannia's weather quarters and was
threatening to run Info the weather beam.
The Vigilant continued to draw ahead of
the Britannia , and turning the Ascog mark
boat the yachts seemed on the run "with
their booms over top port , the Vigilant car
rying great b3lloonor spmnackcr Jibs , which
were drawing splendidly.
Off Toward Point , after rounding the As
cog mark , both yaqhtsset , their splntiackers
to itarboard and their club topsails were
replaced by Jib headers. At the weather
mark Jack yarders were got up , and workIng -
Ing along the Cloch shore splnnackcrs were
run out to port aiid jib topsails were set.
Under this sail both yachts ran toward
Kllcroggan , and from here It appeared as
though the Britannia was closing up a lit
Approaching the 'Cloch lighthouse , on the
homo "run to the finish , the .Vigilant was
still leading , and It was estimated that she
was about seven minutes ahead. The wind
was softening , but tha , Britannia , with her
splnnacker down , began to haul In and
passed her near Gourock. The Britannia
pasted the winning mark only five seconds
ahead of the Vigilant amid a scene of the
greatest enthusiasm ashore and at the club
houie. The Unto of the Britannia was G
hours , 5S minutes ; the time of the Vigilant ,
5 hours , 68 minutes , 5 seconds. Those on
shore when the rerut was known , gave three.
cheers for the prince of Wales and the
One of the most remarkable changes which
ever occurred In a yacht took place several
miles from the finish. The wind was still
fairly fresh on the run up the Firth as far
as Cloch , where the Vigilant had a lead of
over five minutes. On the home side of
Cloon , however , the Vigilant dropped out
of the wind and the Britannia began to
draw upon her , keep las further Jroia the
shoro. A mile above Cloeh the Vigilant was |
pMiod and the Britannia WAI leading by
halt a minute at Kllcroggan. On the rush
the Vigilant plucklly endeavored to como
part In the weather , but the Ilrltannla luffed
up and prcventeJ her. The finish was a
Bad blunder. The Vigilant should have
won with a minute or two to spare , and
would have done so but for the midden fall
ing of the wind , In which the Britannia was
BO well served. H was admitted on all
{ Ides the Vlglhnt was the bytter bonj and
thai Bho held the hardest lines In losing.
The following Is the corrected time of the
finish : Britannia , 4 hours 2S minutes 1
sccoijJi Vigilant , 4 hours 23 minutes 30
After the race the Vigilant returned to
Oerouck bir , In company with the steam
yacht Atlanta. On being asked What he
thought about the race , Mr. Gould said :
"It speaks for Itself. 1 was defeated and
I am wilting to admit my defeat. I must ,
however , say this for the Vigilant. She was
not ready to sail today. My crew never
sailed In her under the present rig , except
four times. There Is no doubt the Vigilant
will do better when the crew have had more
experience. The waters are new to us. Wo
did not have a Clyde pilot aboard , cur pilot
being from the Solent. He had but little
experience with the tides and currents of the
Firth. I do not care to say what I think
the ro ult of Saturday's race will be , but the
Vigilant will do her beet. "
Shortly after the sinking of the Valkyrie ,
Watson , the yacht designer , who was on
board the cutter at the time of the accident ,
said : "I was standing beside Lord Dun-
raven , who was steering the Valkyrie. At
Gunflr the Valkyrie was reaching down on the
starboard tack In order to take the line. The
Satanlta , which had como up on the port
tack , was too soon and was obliged to bold
on before putting about for the start. In
luffing to clear a small boat which was In
her way the Satanltn ran Into us , striking
amidships , and cutting Into her about six
feet. The two yachts were locked together
for a short time. The Satanlta's bowsprit
and topmast were carried away as they sep
arated and the Valkyrie began to sink. Lady
Alglne Lennox and Lord Gordon Lennox
were sitting at the stern of the Valkyrie at
the time of the accident. They were greatly
alarmed , but Lord Dunraven reassured them.
"A number of small boats put off from
other yachts and took us off before the
Valkyrie disappeared , which she did In about
three minutes after the collision. The acci
dent produced great excitement among
the yachtsmen. "

the wire first. The day was uneventful
save for the fast time made by Sablne In
the third race , when she ran a mile and
three-eighths In 2:18 : % . On account of tht.
strike , and possibly because there was no
stake attraction , the attendance wus
small. Pclleas , In the sixth , defeated a
