District Judge Sears of Omaha
was the principal speaker this fore
noon. He told of the progress made
toward erection of the new million
dollar building In Omaha which he
said is to be not only the home of
Omaha lodge No, 39, but an Omaha
home for aU Elks in the state during
their visits' to the metropolis.
Ex-Governor Morehead of Falls
City and City Commissioner Dan
B. Butter of Omaha were among the
speakers. The fact that they are
both candidates, the former for con
gressman in his district . and the
latter for governor, caused- them to
be subjected to some "good natured
ragging" about making "campaign
speeches" at the convention.
The grand finale of the convention
activities was the initiation of can
didates in Maennerchor hall this eve
ning. More than 20 "baby elks"
were admitted to membership in

His story was told as he tossed in
pain from half a dozen bullet holes
through his body.
"I was sent down here by the
Rcrtrand Commissary company in
Chicago," he said. "I had no idea
what I was running into. I don't
blame the miners much for attack
ing us, for we were unknowingly
being used as dupes to keep them
from their jobs. We were given
arms when we arrived and a machine
gun was set up at one corner of the
mine. Guards were with us all the
time and most of the guards were
tough fellows sent by a Chicago de
"I understand the miners sent us
warnings to leave town or we would
be run out. We never got them
perhaps the bosses did. When we
saw the miners approaching yester
day afternoon we did not know what
to do. The guards prepared for
fight, most of us workers wanted to
Bullets Rained All Night.
"Through the night the bullets
rained in on us. We sought shelter
as we could, the miners climbed upon
the coal piles and earth embank
ments and we were unable to see
them. - The' guards., kept firing, -but
most of us hid. Then the miners
blew up. our pumping station. We
had no water and our food supplies
were jn a freight car in the hands
of the miners. About sunrise we put
up the white flag. The miners pour
ed in and we surrendered our arms.
Up to this time not one of us had
been iniured that I know of. al
though I understand that Several of
the miners had been shot. The
miners spread around ...quickly and
tied us totrether tn croups ot three
and six. The tied men then were
rushed off ; in different directions.
Some of them tried to run, but they
were shot . down as fast as they
'One miner asked who was the
machine gun operator. Some one
pointed him out and he was shot in
his tracks and his body laid over
the machine gun. They tied five men
with me, took us out on the road and
told us to run. We ran, and hun
dreds of bullets followed us. We
staggered on, but finally three of our
erouo fell. Dullinir the others with
us, tied down, several bullet holes be

Firea at Close Kange.
"I laid there while men came up
and fired more shots into us from
three or four feet. Then everything
went black. I woke up later and
begged for water, but there was not
any. I remember being dragged
along the road, but I don't know
what by. Ihen they brought us up
to the hospital."
U Kourke s story "was confirmed
by S. P. Williams and Ed Greeji of
Chicago, two of the men who are
still alive. The other three were
killed. These were the six found by
the Associated Press correspondent
this morning and whom he tried to
take water to, only to be refused
permission to help them. .
Tames E. Morris of Johnston City,
III., a young miner in the attacking
forces, told the correspondent the
attack had been spontaneous and
that when the men went to the mine
they did not really stop to think
of the bloodshed that might follow.

he said, "when I met a gang of
teliows. Ihey said they were on
their way to run out those scabs at
the strip mine. I joined them and
others kept joining us until there
must have been 5,000. Most of us
were armed and those that were

got to the mine we spread out

every one was working for himself.

Hot Wind Puts Damper on
North Loup Crop Prospects
North Loup, Neb., June 22. (Spe
cial.) On account of the extremely
unfavorable weather of the past
week,, optimistic prospects for this
territory have largely gone glim
mering. While corn seems to be do
ing fairly well, especially in the best
cultivated fields, small grain is suf
fering seriously from drouth and
the fields indicate that, if not the
smallest yield per acre, at least the
shortest straw crop in recent years,
will be harvested this season. Even
the' corn' is ' now dependent entirely
on the meager amount of moisture
left over Irom the irregular and
spotty torrential storm of rain and
hail which fell on June 8, and the
dry subsoil seems to have robbed
the surface of a large share of the
moisture which fell. For the past
few days 'a 'drying south wind has
prevailed, accompanied by tempera
tures of 90 to 95 degrees, which has
had a damaging effect on alfalfa
fields and especially upland pastures,
and the present outlook' for a good
hay crop is far from bright.
