Roth Sipahdar and Sardarasad, the
nationalist leaders, will be members
of the provisional government, which
doubtless will be composed of their
nominees.
The fighting between the main body
of combatants has ceased, but there
is much hring going on on the part ol
the rough element of the city.
It Is apparent that an agreement
has been reached between the nation
alists and the brigade of Persian
troops called the Cossacks that has
been fighting on the side of the shah
under the command of Colonel Lia
khoff and other Russian officers. Si
pahdar and Sardarasad have agreed
that the Cossacks shall retain their
arms and continue under the com
mand of Colonel Liakhoff. Colonel
LiakhofT will In the future, however,
be under the direct orders of the min
ister of war, who la to be appointed
shortly.
The Russian legation and its at
taches have been most active In the
shah's affairs since It was discovered
that l.iakhofT could not hold out and
It is generally believed that the shah
has accepted the Ilusrian protection
and will be hurried across the fron
tier as soon as the Russian forces can
be brought here to escort him to Rus
sian territory.

K. Thaw, who will remain here in the

alienists. Thaw said:
"I will demonstrate easily that I am
sane when I go on the stand. I am
more than anxious for the ordeal. It
Is the chance I hav« prayed and hoped
for. Now I feel that Judge Mills will
be able to see that my contention that
I am sane 1* valid."
Speaking of hia wife's testimony
against him Thaw tnid he felt no ani

Idea of cutting off her allowance of

Teheran, July 17.—The fact that
the shah of Persia has taken refuge
in the Russian legation here is accept
ed as tantamount to his abdication of
the throne. Arrangements are on
foot to organize a provisional govern
ment and administer the affairs of
the empire pending tke appointment
of a regent. It is probable that the
successful revolutionaries will choose
Mohammed Ali, the ex-ruler's son.
Mohammed All is a minor and will be

STRIKEBREAKERS
Street Cars, Vehicles and Pe

Pittsburg, July 17.—Street cars
vehicles and pedestrians are beinc:
held up by steel strikers in the vie in
ity of the Pressed Steel Car com
pany's plant at McKee* Rocks, when
there has been much disorder and
some bloodshed duriug the past two
days. Every approach to the big plant
is guarded by the men and every one
Is compelled to satisfy the strikers
that they are not seeking employ
ment.
With the coming of daylight riotimr
ceased. For several hours conditions
were quiet and many of the strikers
were at their homes getting sleep.
By 8 o'clock, however, the streets
again took on a lively aspect. Th
strikers, In even a more ugly mood
began gathering around the various
entrances to the mill. Reports wei
in circulation that an attempt woul
be made to resume operations In
portion of the plant at least. This
caused the holding up by the
striker*
of the street ears, wagons and per
sons unknown to the men in their
search for strikebreakers. Squads of
state constabulary rode through th«
town as the strikers were congregat
ing at the gatos of the plant. No vio
lence was offered and the state police
took up a position at the upper end of
the town.
At the first sign of rioting the troop

crowds and to shoot and shoot

It was admitted by the authorities
that the situation is extremely crit
leal. The group of idle workmen had
increased to such an extent that an
order was given to clear the streets
The constabulary, in squads of ten
scattered the strikers. The troopers
were showered with brieks. but the
bombardment lasted only a few mo

POLITICAL LIVES
DEPEND UPON IT
Congressmen Plead for Pro
tection of Raw Materials.
HAVE SESSION WITH TAFT
Delegation of Twenty-three Repub
lican Members of the House Tell
the President Almost Tearfully That
Free Entry of Certain Products Will
Mean Their Defeat—Chief Execu
tive Briefly States His Position.
Washington, July 17.—The White
House was stormed by a delegation of
twenty-three Republican congressmen,
u ho spent an hour and a half with
the president telling him that their
'rv political lives depended upon the
otection of raw materials. It has
•come pretty generally known about
ie Capitol that the president has ex
iessed himself quite freely as favor
ing the free entry of hides, oil and
coal and material reductions on lum
t'jr, etc. Many of the congressmen
who composed the delegation repre
sent Southern districts. They told
the president almost tearfully that
they had been elected on the theory
that they would protect raw materials
In which their people were interested
nd that if the party failed to do this
their districts would flop back again
into the Democratic column.
Mr. Taft listened patiently to all
that was said. He chaffed the con
pressmen good naturedly at times.
Representative Hayes of California
made a speech in favor of protecting
iron ore, for Instance, but the presi
dent said suspected Mr. Hayes of
being chiefly tnterested in lemons.
The range of the discussion covered
every known variety of raw material
and when it was through with the
president stated his position.
Protection Where Necessary.
He said that he favored protection
where protection was necessary and
that where protection no longer was
needed he was tn favor either of
greatly reducing the duty or removing:
It altogether.
It is merely a question of facts,
gentlemen," the president said to the
congressmen, "and In the light of
facts we all want to try to do the
right thing."
The spokesmen of the valiant twen
ty-three were Representatives Young
of Michigan, who dwelt upon the ne
cessity of placing a high duty upon
Iron ore: Mondell of Wyoming, who is
particularly interested in coal Gaines
of West Virginia, speaking for coal
and iron Langley of Kentucky, for
coal and lumber: Cowles of North
arolina. for lumber Austin of Ten
nessee. for coal, iron and lumber, and
Hayes of California.
Mr. Langley put the matter square
ly up to the president as a question
of political expediency.
'We come from Democratic states,
some of us." said Mr. Langley, "but
we were elected as Republicans who
believe in the protection of the raw
materials. If we fall to protect our
constituents we will be 'revised down
ward'—into private life."
President Taft remarked dryly that
he was as much Interested in Repub
lican success as any one could be.
DISCUSSED BY THE CABINET
Proposed Canal Bond Issue to Meet
Needs of Government.
Washington, July 17.—The proposed
Panama cunal bond issue to meet the
needs of the treasury and buttress the
government cash box. In view of the
diminished revenues, occupied most of
the time of the cabinet session. Sec
retary MaeVeagh presented the draft
of a measure prepared by him which
authorized the issuance of the bonds
to the full extent of the cost of the
oanal. including the $130,000,000 al
ready authorised for that purpose.
The bonds are to bear 3 per cent In
terest and run for fifty years.
There will be no issuance of the
entire amount immediately and it was
even stated that while the present
situation warranted immediate steps
to safeguard the government by se
curing authority for the bond Issue no
decision has been finally reached as
to issuing any amount of the bonds
and that a change in the tide of the
revenue might make it unnecessary
to put any of them on the market.
Treasury officials were unwilling to
discuss any phase of the question be
yond pointing to the figures showing
that while the disbursements are ex
ceeding the receipts the situation 1
not as bad as it was a year ago.

Montgomery, Ala., July 17.—Govern
sr Comer's proclamation for the spe
tlal session of the legislature, which
I* to convene July 27, calls for legis
lation upon sixty-five subjects. The
main reason for the special session,

clubs might keep liquor In lockers

islate against this right. The gov
ernor suggests that all goods thus
stoned be made contraband.

GREAT STRIKE THREATENED
Millicn English Miners Voting on Pro
posal to Quit Work.
Ixndon, July 17.—The Miners' Con
federation of Great Britain, after a
prolonged meeting, has decided In fa
vor of ballotting Its million members
as to whether or not a national strike
shall be declared in support of the
Scottish miners, who are resisting a
wage reduction of 6 pence a day. The
ballot will not be completed before
July 27 and the executive committee
of the confederation will meet July
28 to take action on the result.
The present feeling seems to be in
favor of the stoppage of all mines, a
condition which would entail prac
tically the complete paralysis of Brit
ish industries. In view of the conse
quent expected shortage in the coal
supply many factories already have
served notice to their employes of
the termination of contracts.
