Alleged Proposition to Adjust the Rtrike
Merely a Suggestion.

Labor tnlon.
VIra President Wilson of the Interna
tional Association of Machinists, who has
bad direction of the strike, with headquar-
ters In Omaha, left laat night for the west,
Ha will put In some time with the strikers
in ih towns and cities along the Union
Pacific. S. H. Orace and other executive
committeemen will have charge of affairs
here for the machinists during Wilson's ab
Mr Wilson expressed himself last night I
wp.ii satisfied with the progress of af-
fairs and confident that the strikers would
ventuallv win Ihelr fight. From now on
a great effort will be made to prevent the
Introduction of nonunion men Into the
various shops. The strikers are organizing
everywhere over the system with a deter
mination of accomplishing this end, for In
that they believe lies great possibilities of
success. It will require some diligent work
of this kind, however, the officials inti
mate, to Intercept their plans and prevent
them from filling the shops W1W me non
union men If they see fit.
The strikers construe the order Issued
Thursday by the company, purporting to be
an ultimatum to them to return to work
or take the consequences, as the gauntlet
thrown down, but they declare that this or-
Ber has nor will have no effect upon their
men. Last night they were claiming that
two more machlntots had left the Omaha
shops and Joined the strikers.
Not One Man Returns.
They assert that various places over the
system have been heard from and all re
port that not one of the men baa availed
himself of this opportunity to return to
work. The strikers are confident their
ranks will be kept Intact and that none
will go back to work until all are taken
back under the conditions demanded.
On the other hand, the statement was
given out from the highest official sources
of the railroad company yesterday morning
that the company la gaining ground and has
more men In Us shops than It haa bad at
r v ' AsV4 what the company would do If it
became evident the strikers would not r
turn to work until their demands were
granted, an executive official yesterday de
cllned to stats.
One of the strikers said yesterday morn
ing several of the men had received personal
letters from the company making induce
ments to them to return to work. In view
of events of the ,last few days an early
termination of the strike IB looked ror.
Officials, however, decline to give out any
Information concerning any plans they
may have for bringing about a settlement
of difficulties.
Feeling? Against Nonunion Men.
Feeling among the strikers against the
company and Its Imported nonunion men
becomes more animated each day. The
strikers feel that these men should not be
allowed to come in and fill their places
and some assert their determination to
stop them It possible. The company la
taking every precaution against trouble of
this kind.
Investigation shows that the alleged pro
posal reoelved by the union men for a set
tlement of the strike, which Vice President
Wilson disclosed Thursday nlgbt and
which was said to have been made by Rob
ert E. Murphy, purporting to be a repre
aentatlve of the Auditorium company,
pledging the office of that company as
mediator for a consideration of half a
day's pay from each orgaulzed laboring man
In the city as a bonus to the auditorium
fund, was not made aa an actual propoil-
tlon, but ln the form merely of a aug
gestlon and came from Rod E. Murphy,
bookkeeper of the Floyd J. Campbell com
pany, members of the Chicago Board of
Trade. The wrong Interpretation was
placed upon the letter sent by Mr. Murphy
and the wrong name given by some of the
strikers, aocordlng to Mr. Murphy.
' Marphy Makes Statement.'
Mr. Murphy made this statement to a re
porter for The Bee:
"I aent the letter to the secretary of Cen-
tral Lhbor union. J. A. Bradford, and
merely suggested that the union men of the
city take out auditorium stock to the ex
tent of a half day'a pay for each, and that
perhaps, as the majority of business men
of tbs city were interested ln the audito
rium proposition, it would enlist their sym-
thelr cause, and possibly be the means of
bringing about a settlement of the strike
As to pledging the support .of the Audito
rium company to any such proposition, 1
never thought of , such a thing, ln fact, 1
made no proposition, simply a suggestion.
I also suggested that this fund be diverted
to the strike benefits ln case the proposition
fell through after the money was raised.
Alfred Millard of the Auditorium com-
' pany says concerning the matter:
"The Idea that this company would make
any such offer Is too absurd to think of.
We have never thought of taking any hand
In thla strike and the matter bas never
been broached at any of our board meet
ings aad would not be tolerated If it were
brought up. It is a foolhardy Idea."
Mr. Murphy la not a member of the Au
ditorium company and denlea all claim of
peeking to represent that company.
The Central Labor union bad sched
uled a meeting tor last Bight to consider
this "proposition," but the matter was
dropped when It waa learned through The
Bee yestecdsy afternoon that the "propo
sition" did not come from the Auditorium
company nor any member of it

The national government has Issued a
the departments of Boyaca, Cundlnamarca,
Santander and Toll ma. br the end of July.
Those ln the other departments will, on
account of the lack of rapid telegraphic
communication, have the time of their sur
render extended to August 7. Hundreds of
revolutionists have surrendered already
and more are coming ln every day."
"1 can safely say," continued General
Salaiar, "that the revolutionary army only
exists on the Isthmus because of the help
given It by President Zelaya of Nicaragua,
who has violated all the rules of Interna
tional law."
Generals Sergio Camargo, Carlos Arturo
Torres, Manuel Jose Angarlta and other
prominent liberal or revolutionary leaders
have Issued manifesto addressed to their
followers urging them to lay down their
arms in order that the nation may reach a
decision on the canal bill. This manifesto
sets forth that the commercial Interests of
the world demand the prompt construction
of the Panama canal. Thla declaration
shows that both political parties ln Colom
bia are ln favor of the project. The terms
of the decree of the government granting
pardon to revolutionists referred to by
General Salaiar are more generous than
any of those which have been previously
offered. The organizers of foreign expedi
tions against Colombia, however, are ex
cluded from the terms of the decree.

to signing the document called "The

however. Is much more binding.

He Again Blips Away
from Then.
SEATTLE, Wash., July 11. Bloodhounds
and scores of deputy sheriffs were unable J
stir outlawv Harry Tracy from concealment
ln the brush near Covington today.
Because of the midnight battle last night
the posse were sure of the convict's where
abouts. A cordon of experienced marksmen
encircled that place earlier ln the evening
and there was no possible avenue of escape
for the fugitive without a fight. Hounds
were started on the trail early this morn
ing and worked ln every direction today, but'
without success. Darkness fell with less
encouragement for the hunters than on
Wednesday evening.
Every kind of rumor was received from
the scene of the sheriff's deputies' search
today. At one time a report was started
that a battle had been fought, resulting ln
the death of seven deputies and the wound
ing of the convict. Diligent search for the
source of this report met with failure. It Is
believed to be absolutely groundless, yet It
can not be branded so until every part of
the pursuing crowd haa been heard from.
The nature of the country through which the
chase leads would make It possible for a
battle to be fought ln one of the ravines and
little be heard of it in the neighboring
towns for many hours.
Flaht at Close Ranare.
At 11:45 last night Tracy arrived at the
sawmill plant of the Covington Lumber com
pany, a mile from this place. Deputy
Sheriffs J. A. Bunce, Fred C. Bunce, Galvln
and Crowe had been aent to guard this
point. Deputies Crowe and the Bunces,
father and son, had posted themselves on
the railroad near the sawmill at the en
trance of a big cut near a rise of ground,
the Bunces being on the outer guard line.
They were hardly settled when they heard
footsteps approaching from the Auburn side,
but remained on the quiet until the unknown
bad almost come abreast of them, when the
challenge to halt waa given.
"Hello," responded the stranger.
"What's your name!" demanded 3. A.
"My name is Anderson."
As he gave this reply Tracy, for It was
he. started to run. The deputies again
called upon him to bait, but he kept going
and they opened fire, shooting four times
each. Tracy ran up the trick and a few
yards further encountered Deputy Sheriff
"Who goes there?" challenged the officer.
"A deputy," coolly responded the outlaw.
Taken for a Deputy,
Crowe, thinking it waa the elder Bunce,
started to approach, when Tracy commenced
shooting at close range, firing two shots.
The bullet whistled harmlessly by and
Crowe suffered slightly from the burning
powder as It aped from the muzxle of the
rifle. .... , ,y..-:, .. r-
After the shooting Tracy turned and en
tered the brush along the side of the track,
where be was lost in the blackness of the
The deputies made a burrled circle
through the woods to Covington to bead
Tracy off, but on arrival found that be had
not passed the station
A dispatch dated 8 a. m. adds that since
his escape from the north side of Sluice
creek Tracy attempted to board one of the
castbound freights. The grade Is heavy at
thU point, but the train waa running light
and at such speed that Tracy was unable to
board it. Another train passed and the
conductor reports that while running near
the sawmill someone called for him to stop.
There were no deputies present and It is
thought Tracy Is the man who called and
the opinion Is advanced that he may have
been wounded In the battle just before mid
A man thought to be Merrill appeared
yeaterday at the home of a farmer a few
miles east of Ravendale, near here, and
wanted food. He remained in the vicinity
al! day.
TACOMA, Wash., July 11. At o'clock
this morning Sheriff Cudlhee and numerous
posses arrived at Covington, about twelve
miles from Tacoma, where Tracy eluded
the posse at midnight.
Every train going toward the Northern
Pacific tunnel through the Cascades la
stopped and searched. The location of the
country is such that Tracy may be aald to
be naturally cornered in the point of a trl
angle and therefore developments are mo
mentarily expected.
All Indications are that Tracy is following
the Palmer cut-off up the mountains, keep
ing In the timber as much as possible. He
bas about five miles start of the posse.
A special to the Times from Covington,
Wash., says: A man answering the de
scription of David Merrill, Tracy's partner,
appeared at Ravendale yesterday after
noon. He forced a family two miles east of
that place to give him diner and later re.
turned to the bouse and procured a supply
of provisions.
Sheriff Cudlhee and Guard Carson, with
bloodhounds and a small posse, left Auburn
at ( o'clock this morning for the point
where Tracy waa laat seen.
Feared that Second Attempt May Be
Made to Dynamite Bastlle
at St. Joseph.
ST. JOSEPH. Mo., July 11. Sheriff Spen
cer summoned a large force of guards to
night and armed them heavily ln expecta
tion that a second attempt would be made
to blow up the county jail and liberate
fnany desperate criminals awaiting transfer
to the penitentiary. Enough dynamite was
stolen from a rock quarry today to blow
up half the town, a considerable part of

late Senator Charles H. Van Wyck of Ne
braska, who was to have married Frank
Mitchell of this city on July 3, recanted of
her promise and the wedding did not take
place according to program, and thereby
bangs a story which-is just becoming pub

Shortly after the Interrupted ceremony

Washington, appearing at wocial functions
under the chaperonage of a leading sena
tor's wife, having apartments at the Nor-
mandle. The young woman' was known as

ters herself.
Rev. Radcllffe, while refusing to discuss
the strange ending of what promised to
be a most happy culmination of a genuine
love match, stated that the couple, accom
panied by one person, whose name waa un
known to him, appeared at his home and
presented a proper marriage license. That
was all he would say, excepting that the
young couple left his residence unmarried.
He preferred that the facts should come
from the parties themselves.
Friends of the principals of the affair
say the would-be groom took the affair se
riously and was much surprised at the
young woman's change of mind at the crit

MINNEAPOLIS, July 11. Police CapUIn
John Pltchette, formerly known aa "Coffee
John," was convicted tonight of trafficking
In nosltlona on the police force. The spe
rlflo charge was that bo accepted 200 from
John Long for procuring the appointment of
the latter as a policeman.
While the offense Is only a misdemeanor
and does not involve a penitentiary sen
tence, the conviction Is regarded as of great
imr-ortance ln the current municipal cor
ruptlon expose because of the complication
of other officials. The prosecuting au
thorltles point out that It would have been
imnosslhla for Caotaln Fltchette to have
sold appointments to the police force un
esa he were ln collusion with otner oin
clals. The appointment of Long was maae
last August under the administration of
Mayor Ames. He had been dropped from
the department rolle when Ames resumed
office six months before.

this mornlug it can be stated of the 600
men supposed to bave entered the mouth
of the Rolling Mill mine of the Cambria
Steel company Thursday morning, ninety
are known to be dead and twenty-two
rescued. Four hundred, so the mine offi
cials claim, escaped when the explosion
occurred, leaving eighty-eight still to be
accounted for. Some of these, according to
those In charge of the rescue work, are
dead, but the majority, they claim, have
escaped. From physicians, heads of rescue
parties and others who are familiar with
tho different headings In the mine. It Is
learned that at least fifty-two additional
bodies will be brought to the tsmporary
morgue at daylight, making the total dead
142. This, so President Stackhouse says,
will be the extent of the disaster, but until
all checks of the miners are taken an ac
curate list will be Impossible. Some of the
bodies, It Is "admitted, will be entombed In
the closed headings or burled under alate.
Somo may never be found.
JOHNSTOWN, Pa., July ll.-Thls has
been a day of herolo rescues at the fated
Rolling Mill mine of the Cambria Steel
company. Thrilling experiences attended
the efforts of the forty brave and daring
fellows who went down Into the bowels
of the earth, stirred by a very faint hope
that still they might be in time to restore
to life some of those who are entombed.
Death lurked everywhere around them,
but undaunted they pressed forward,
swayed with the noblest of human pur
poses. The reward of their efforts waa
the saving of the lives of fourteen of
their fellow-men and bringing them again
Into the sunlight and back to living fam
ilies. Dead and maimed bodies were lo
cated, but no effort waa made to bring
them out of the vast theater of death
until every human energy was put for
ward to seeing that no living soul might
escape ' their aid. That done, the dead
were put In train cars, brought up and
exposed to morbid gaze, while being trans
ferred to wagona io, which to be taken jo

Eighty-seven dead bodies were recovered
from the mine between daylight and night
fall. Still a party of officials and minora
battled on, three miles Inside the mine.
Occasionally word would come to the sur
face 'by some mysterious means that an
other heap of remains bad been expoaed
to the vision of the searchers. There re
main dangerous headings in the Klondike
section of the mine yet to be explored.
No one knows how many more dead will
be found there. The mine officials refrain
from guesswork on the subject.

The official list of the bodies identified up
to 10 o'clock tonight Is as follows:

Johnstown Horror
The Impression prevails among the out
siders and certain employes of tbe mine
that 150 Is a low estimate of the easualty
Hat. Fated Johnstown spent th day hor
ror-stricken. Great throngs surged about
the pit mouth, the Improvised morgue at
the armory and about the stricken bomes
of the dead. Exaggerated rumors of all
kinds prevailed. One report gained circu
lation that disaster had overtaken tbe res
cuing party which entered the mine shortly
after 9 o'clock. This waa not disproved until
word finally came from the men ln the
It is difficult to picture with any degree
approaching Its full worth the work of rea
cue. How brave men went )nto the Jaws of
death in its most horrible form, encount
ered their fellows transformed into raving
maniacs by hours of waiting in tbe pitch
darkness of the earth' interior, lifted them
moaning from their beds of fallen rock aad
then, bending and crawling on all fours, car
rying them a quarter of a rolle underground
to where cars could be reached to take them
Along In the early part of the afternoon
cheering word came from the Innermost re
cesses of the mine that life yet lingered ln
some of the bodies found. The rescuers
made fl:st for No. 4, tbe left beading, which
they had been unable to reach the night be
fore. Desolate, even for the scene of a
mine Interior, was the heading that
stretched out before them. Falls of root
almost choked the heading, but through aad
over the debris the brave men pushed their
Maniac's Usgb Greet Them.
In tbe front, young Patrick Martin, bis
brother Peter, Philip White and aeveral
cousins of the Martins made their way.
Suddenly ln an open space they were start
led by the maniac laugh which emanated
from a blackened form that rushed at them
out of the darkness.
Tbe man graaped firmly a pick handle
and tried In his frenzy to beat down his
rescuers. He was overpowered and dragged
back to the main beading to the cars.
