Calumet, Mih., Doc. 30. The strike situation in the copper country had not improved today. If anything, it was tenser. Rioting was feared. Here and at Red Jacket several hundred armed men, members of the Citizens' Alliance, were patrolling the streets forbidding the strikers from congregating. Tho Houghton county special grand jury reconvened today at Hancock. Prosecutor Lucas promised a full inves tigation of tho charge that before his deportation, President Mover," of the (Western Federation of Miners, was beaten and shot by members of the Cit izens' Allianc. Not much pretense was made of denying tho deportation. The Alliance members declared, however, that none of them had anything to do with the beating and shooting.

After less than a week's experiment, Snn Frjin cisi o today abandoned the attempt to care for its unemployed. The involuntarily idle will be fed foe a few mme days at lea.it, but it will be by charity, not by the municipality. Work, if they are to have any, they will have to find for themselves. In the first place the city lias ex hausted the. small fund it had on hand, available for furnishing employment ou msnii'il public work. And in the second place, the 3 daily rate paid was so tempting that it drew men from ev ery direction, many of them leaviug less remunerative work elsewhere. From Oakland, for example, the mes sage came yesterday that the city bad no unemployed. All had crossed the bay to Pan Francisco to register for $3 daily poitioi with the municipality.

"It ! seems to me," he said today, "that the sight of the crushed bpdies of the ehil- ; dren who perished in the Christmas eve ! panic should have startled any one to sober thought, should have overshad owed the partisan bitterness and hatred. But that has not been the result. "Pew realize the extent and gravity of the terrible danger of the situation here. If we are to avert a greater ca lamity, law and order must be restored, and lawlessness must be punished, no matter who is responsible for it." , General Manager in Chicago. Chicago, Dee. 30. General Manager James McNaughton, of the Calumot 4 Hoela mines, arrived here today from Calumet, Mich.

Similar advices were received from Redwood City and other towns. Though the city hail thrown up its hands, it was hoped tluit the citizens' committee, at its meeting Friday, would devise a plan for meeting the situation by offering work on private improve ments. In the opinion of Albert F.hrgott, of the relief committee, it was the state which ought to act. "It should do something." he said, "if only to ge! tho various municipnlitius to solve each its own unemployment problem, "The present situation is not the worst Pan Francisco will face. We have three years of it ahead, with 1916 the worst of all. We ought to establish registration headquarters and maintain throughout all this period. Then, if we can't find work, we should establish an industrial farm like the one at Cleveland." R ZONE LESS THAN HALF OF Some Unable to Tell Legislature Is for What and There Are Others. HAWLEY IS NOT KNOWN Many Unable to Tell Who State's Rep resentatives Are In Congress and So Cannot Pass. But 16 out of 65 applicants for final papers of naturalization had been granted at noon today by Judge Gallo way in the circuit court, while over 34 were continued until next February. Although there were several appli cants examined who were turned down for the reason that their first appplica tion papers were faulty, and on ac count of general moral character, there were over a score today whose cases were continued by Judge Galloway, in order to give them time to study the constitution. Why Is a Legislature? Notwithstanding the fact that there were men today making application for final papers who have lived in Marion county for 40 years and over, a number of them could not tell Examiner Haz ard 'why they wanted to be citizens of the nited States; who were the state's representatives in congress or what our Oregon legislature was for. When the applicant denied knowledge concern ing the legislature, a broad grin passed over the face of County Judge Bushey, while the court looked away with an amused smile. After the examination, Judge Bushey, in referring to the leg islative question, said that it was an imposition upon the applicant to ask him such unsolveable questions. However, the court and Mr. Hazard demands that each applicant must have knowledgo of what the branches of the state and federal government are, and what'dutics they perform, and, as many failed to possess this learning, Judge Galloway kindly consented to continue their cases over, and requested the ap plicants to study upon the questions, and report again to him next Febru ary. Applicant Gets Hot. Vincient Domogolla, one of tho first applicants this morning coming before Examiner Hazard, became rather hot under the collar when he was told that his witnesses wore not satisfactory. Mr. Domgoolfa said he would not make any more trips to the court house to be nat uralized, and was told that ho could use his own judgment insofnr as his inten tions to become an American citizen were concerned, but that lie would hnve to bring along the proper witnesses be fore his case could be passed along. One of tho witnesses was disqualified, not being a bona fido resident. Strange to note, there were several applicants appearing today for their final papers who took out their first papers 45 years ao. When asked why they waited so long before completing the preparations for full citizenship, they Invariably answered that they ne glected to do so, nnd that they were coming in now in order to "have the thing dono with." Tho examinations will take up all of today, and possibly a portion of tomor row before the last one will hnve been considered. WATCH NIGHT SERVICE.
