At a democratic convention held re

Judge Holmes of Fremont has left
the democratic party and joined the re
publican party. He says that since the
democratic party has been in power "it
has conclusively demonstrated to my
satisfaction at "least, that the policy of
the democratic party is destructive to
the best interests of the American peo
ple. They have demonstrated, to my
mind that in order to keep our wheels
moving and our men at work wo must
legislate for our own and not for other
countries. I, during the years that I
supported the democratic ticket, had
never realized that tho question of a
protective tariff entered so largely as it
does into our national life and property.
I am convinced now that the policy
that must control in this country must
te American and nothing else.
For thirty long years it (the republican
party) very largely controlled the policy
of the country and during all that time
all honest and willing hands could find
something to do; during that time this
country advanced as it never did before;
during that time wages constantly ad
vanced and men bettered their condi
tion." SerlonMy Tlurt by a Cow.

In reference to the silver question he
said: "While it is desirable to secure

sources and productive energies of this
country would enable our government
to sustain it on a parity with gold and
compel recognition for it from the en

also favored the repeal of the tax on

Government Han Paid the Cost ir Carne
gie's riant Several Times.
Washington, May 29. In the armor
plate investigation Monday Captain
Sampson, in explaining the matter of
taking samples, said an employe of the
Carnegie works took the samples and
subjected them to machine tests. The
Carnegie employe called off the results
and the government inspector took tno
figures as called off.
"In other words,'" said Chairman Cnin
mings, "the government tests were made
by Carnegie employes, with a Carnegie
machine and were accepted as conclusive
by the government?"
Captain Sampson said this was cus
tomary the world over. In the intricate
processes some reliance had to be placed
on the company employes. The testing
machine had a dial on which the govern
ment inspector might sea that the check
ing off was correct.

statement of Representative Coombs (N.
Y.) that the first government contract had
paid the Carnegie company for the cost of
their plant, and yet now contracts were
being made at the old rate, thus paying
the Carnegies several times for their
plant. Captain Sampson said he thought
it was to some extent true that the more
recent contracts were based on the
earlier contracts, when the cost of the
plant was considered in making the
price for armor.
Commanding Officers Responsible.
Washington, May 29. The many oc
casions of late for the employment of
federal troops to assist judicial officers in
protecting railway and other properties
from organized bodies of lawless men
and the misconception of the real func
tions of the troops has caused the issue
by General Schofield of instructions to
arnry department commanders to the ef
fect that when troops are so employed
they cannot be directed to act under the
orders of any civil officer. Tho com
manding officers of the troops so em
ployed are directly responsible to their
military superiors.

Hoke Smith at Washington reached th

thought, will reopen a large amount o
the Omaha and Wisconsin Central in
demnity lands opened in 1891. The de
cision generally favors the squatters wh'
located upon land prior to the opening
day as against the filers who stood iv
line, and will result in continued litiga
tion. Tiie secretary also denies the open
ing of cases after once settled. One of
the cases decided by Smith was where
3,000,000 feet of pine had already been
cut and barked and the contestant has
taken iwssessiou of the logs, leaving the

New Mexico Miners to Be Called Mines
Loaded With Dynamite Strike News.
Denver, May 29. The mine owners
have decided not to arbitrate differences
with the Cripple Creek miners and
trouble may begin at any moment.
Information has baen received from
Cripple Creek that even had the strikers
been driven from the camp, the men
who took their places in the mines would
be in immediate peril. Every mine in
the camp over which there has been
trouble is "loaded." Large quantities of
dynamite have been stored in the shaf to
back of the timbering by the strikers
and hidden wire; attached to these
charges in such u manner that they can
be exploded and every person in the
mines instantly killed, while the men
who start the battery remain out of sight.
Ex-Policemaa Hobart, second in com
mand in the squad of deputies organized
here and sent to Cripple Creek, has re
turned for the purpose of recruiting men
to take tho places of deserters. About
15 of the origiual force refused to serve
longer on account of the hardships to
which they were subjected.
William Ho wells, a member for Colo

United Mine Workers who attended the
Columbus meeting, has returned. Mr.
Howells will issue a call to the miners
asking them to send a delegate repre
senting each mine in Colorado, Wyom

settle the question whether they will
join in a general suspension of work or
not. Speaking on the national situation
ho said a compromise basi3 will un
doubtedly be reached in the course of a
short time.
Sheriff nml Striker- Are Roth Strengthen
ing Tliir Forces For n Conflict.
Cripple Crei::;, Colo., May 29.
If trouble breaks out again, and it is im
possible to see how it can b avoided, the
results bid fair to be far more terrible
than those already witnessed. The arm
istice declared was made use ot by the
sheriffs to increase their forces. Nearly
400 men have been recruited in Denver
and on the slightest outbreak will be
forwarded to Cripple Creek and sworn
in as deputies. The strikers seem to
have taken courage from the action of
Governor Waite and affect to believe
that the militia would tend to aid them
in carrying out their purpose. Be this,
as it may, the strikers are being en
couraged by the temporary absence of
the deputies and are becoming bolder
ana more imperative and intolerant.
There is no danger that a nonpartisan
will be fired upon withont first being
warned, but when ordered to stop, it
means that he must stop just where his
feet are resting. It is but a step from
this attitude to one of most reckless dar
ing, and people in the camp? fear the
All day Monday strikers were search
ing for arms and ammunition in the
mining camps, and wherever arms, am
munition or provisions were found they
were confiscated and receipts given for
them. No one about the camp3, except
the strikers, are permitted to carry arms
aud the striker, who reign supreme,
have issued the order that every able
bodied man found in camp when the real
contest comes will be forced to carry
arms in their ranks. The result is that
many people are moving away from the
camps to the city of Cripple Creek and
elsewhere. Town and county officials
are utterly unable to do anything in the
face of such an overwhelming number of
desperate men. Parties of men who are
in sympathy with the mine owners have
gone to Midland, where they will met
the deputies and conduct them to the
strongest points about the scene of trouble.
A large party of strikers have also
gone towards Midland to meet the depu
ties and retard their progress as much as
possible. The country about Bull Hill,
the strikers' stronghold, for eight miles
is held and patrolled by the strikers.
The miners have received telegrams in
cipher from Denver. Pueblo, Leadville,
Ouray, Coal Creek and other points, of
fering them aid if a battle becomes in
evitable. It is said that 1,000 armed
men will Ikj sent to tho strikers on 48
hours notice.
Miners Recapture Coal Train.
Wcnona, Ills., May 29. Three coal
trains guarded and escorted out of
Minonk Monday by troops were re
captured by the strikers here a few hours
after their triumphant release from the
blockade. Strikers to the number of 100
waylaid them aud taking possession of
the trains sidetracked them. Word was
sent at once to Sheriff Leuza at Mata
mora and he appeared accompanied by
deputies. He tried to persuade the
strikers to abandon their obstruction.
The- finally declined to do so. After ex
hausting all peaceful measures the
sheriff sent to Toluga for 100 Winches
ters and 4.000 revolvers. He has wired
state officers and requested Governor
Altgeld to send troops.

ground that his arrest was illegal under

contention that horse racing is a lottery.
It is not a lottery, either in common
