Will Minimise Possibility
INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 23. President
Mitchell of th United Mine Worker of
America discussed today the meeting of
th executive committee of tbe National
Clvlo federation at 'New York, from which
he ha just returned.
Th executive committee waa appointed
to consider waya and means of bringing
labor and capital Into cloaer relationship.
Tbe committee adopted a constitution and
by-law and hereafter will meet one each
year, unless called together by n emer
gency. President Mitchell firmly believe
that th object for which th commute
wa appointed will be achieved and point
te the settling of th big strike cf gar
ment .worker. In, JJew .York recontlyin
which over 40,000 . persons' were out, a

Th agreement In this strike waa reached
entirely through the Instrumentality of

worker being granted a shorter working
day, from nine to eight hour and a half.
Said President Mitchell: "While It will,
of course, not avert all strikes. It will re
duce them materially and minimise the
possibility of long-drawn-out struggle In
which vast sums of money are lost both
to tbe employer and their men. Th com
mittee will act whenever It I requested to
do o and where the opportunity presents
Itself will offer Its service voluntarily.
It will not attempt to arbitrate difference,
of course, unless there 1 a request from

NOYES TO BE DISMISSED
Attorney General Knox Finds Alaskan
Judge Guilty of Mis
conduct. WASHINGTON, Feb., 23. Attorney Gen
eral Knox baa delivered to the president
his findings In the matter of the charges
filed against Arthur H. Noyes. judge of th
second division of th United State court
for Alaska. Th charge allege incom
petency and corruption, although the at
torney general say the charge of dis
honesty wa not pressed. After reviewing
the cas at length th attorney general
concludes hi report a follow:
Such waa the end of thia Nome litiga
tion, out of which has sprung so much
complaint, bitterness and public scandal.
After review it remalna that the actual
consequences of those proceedings In the
Alaska district court were to bring that
court into dlcrespect, and to Impair public
confidence in Its wise and Impartial admin
istration of Justice.
In view of the foregoing, and after th
most careful consideration, I have con
First That the appointment of a re
ceiver in th case referred to, without no
tice to the defendants, and - the refusal
upon hearing to discharge the receiver,
and the consequent dispossession of the
defendants of their property, were not
justified under the facts, the pleadings and
the principles of equity.
Second That there is no justification
shown for the refusal by Judge Noyes to
settle a bill of exceptions at the- Instance
of the defendants and for the refusal to
allow them an appeal.
Third That after an appeal had been
allowed by the circuit court of appeals,
and after a writ of supersedeas had been
served on Judge Noyes, the plaintiffs and
the receiver. Judge Noyes- attitude toward
the writ was one of hostility and obstruc
tion, which waa totally inconsistent with
his judicial duty toward a superior court
and toward the litigants, seeking through
that court reversal of his judicial action.
Fourth That Judge Noyea should forth
with be removed from office.
Th president will app.-ov of the find
ing and promptly dismiss Judg Noyes from

PUNISHMENT FOR SENATORS
Deliberate Action to Decide on Measures'
Against Carolina lighten,
AT LEAST ONE MONTH OF OSTRACISM
Farther Apologies Are fteqnlred to
Be Submitted In Writing Before
Delllgerenta Are Parged of
WASHINGTON, Feb, 23. The topic of
chief Interest, In senatorial circles today,
and, in fact, everywhere In official Washing
ton, was the fight In the senate yesterday
between Senator Tillman and McLaurln
of South Carolina. Numerous conference
have been held among senator as to what
hould be done to preserve the dignity of
the senate and to manifest Its sentiment
with reference to th two senators who
violated Its traditions. While no plan of
procedure ha been agreed upon, It is
learned that there will be deliberate action
and It I likely it will not be less than
thirty days before tbe South Carolina sen
ators are restored to their full power as
senators, this deliberation on their case
being in tbe nature of a punishment, since
they will not be allowed to 'address the
senat nor to vote until no longer in
contempt of the senate.
Senator Burrows Is chairman of the com
mittee oa privilege and election, and to
night he said that In advance of any meet
ing of the commute he could not say
what would be done, but ha added that
the matter Is of such serious Import that
It must receive careful consideration. It
will be a day or two before the committee
meet to take up the resolution referred
to it by the senate.
Reqalre Farther Apologies.
It Is Understood the conferences among
senator have shown that the South Caro
lina senator have not been sufficiently pun
ished, and that th commute wll require
further apologies to be submitted to it
In writing, with the assurance that uca
apology will be made to the senate, before
the senators have been sufficiently purged
of the contempt. ,
Th whole matter, as stated in the sen
ate report yesterday, is without precedent,
and the aenate 1 now to make a precedent
in tbe matter of punishment and in re
quiring sufficient apology. Th conference
today developed th fact that th senators
regard the matter with all the seriousness
with which they dealt with it yesterday,
and that they intend to take such action
as will prevent. If possible, similar epi
sodes occurring in the future.
Tillman and MeLnnrln Reticent.
Neither Senator Tinman or McLaurln
were disposed to enter Into any discussion
today regarding th happening In th
senat yesterday. Senator Tillman, how
ever, did say, in reply to questions as to
whether there had been any developments
In the case, that nothing haa occurred.
He said: "So far as my own purpose
are - concerned. I am simply awaiting de
velopment, anfl will act In accordance with

PHILIPPINE DAY IN SENATE
Even tha ' Prince's Visit Is Hot to
Interfere with Vote on
WASHINGTON, Feb. 23. In accordance
with the agreement heretofore reached, the
senate will begin voting at 4 o'clock tomor
row on the Philippine tariff bill. All the
time of the day's session previous to that
hour will be devoted to speeches for and
against the bill, the time to be divided
between the supporters and th opponents
of the bill.
The opinion ha been advanced that ye
terday'a episode between Senator Tillman
and McLaurln might hav tbe effect of
causing a postponement of the time for
taking the vote in order to permit those
senators to speak who have desired to do
no, but there is no probability of any
change of program. The senate regards a
unanimous consent agreement sacredly and
never allows anything to Interfere with it
According to the present program, Prince
Henry will be a witness of a part of th
ceremony of tallying th vote on tho first
bill, and he will be allowed to observe It
either from the floor of the senate or from
tbe gallery, as he may prefer. Probably
all of the members will be presented to
him, but it is not intended that his pres
ence shall interfere in any way with th
prosecution of th business of th aenate.
The Irrigation bill now hold th place
of vantage on the senate calendar, next to
the Philippine bill, and probably will re
celve the attention of the senate after the
Philippine bill Is out of the way. There la,
however, some Impatience on tha part of
the friends of the ablp subsidy bill over th
present arrangement, and .if th Irrlga
tlon bill should consume a great deal of
tlm there may be an effort to displace it.
All will depend upon th action of th re
publican steering committee.
Tbe bill making appropriation for con
gress and th different department of tba
government will be reported to the senat
during the week and probably will be taken
up tor action th next day after It 1 re

armor of lc, had lost It force and re
signed Its away to warm sunshine and clear
blue skies, o there wa no regret that th
