Prsiident of American Federation if Labor
Talks at Chautauqua.
Takes the- -Workman's Bids of the
Story- ana Bars There Are Maajr
Evils In System Keed
' laa; Reformation.
Several thousand persons greeted Samuel
Oompers, president of the American Feder
ation of Labor, who delivered an address
today before the Chautauqua assembly on
"Labor and Capital; the Workman's Side
t the Story."
- Prealdent John Mitchell of the United
Mine Workers, who was also to hats spoken.
was unable to be present because of the sit
uation in the anthracite fields.
dMr. Oompers prefaced his remarks by
saying that the average mind looks contrary
en labor's side of the question.
"The newspapers, without attempt on
lay part to charge them with unfairness,
usually present the labor question from the
standpoint of the employer. They either
get their information from employers or
their representatives. It Is the same old
atory, the men and women, the representa
tives of labor who suffer from the same old
wrong. There Is no short cut to emanci
pation." .
. Mr. GompeTs declared that the evil Of
labor of children needs reformation.
"Many states,- particularly in the south,
have no laws whatever to prevent the prac
tice." . "Men get rich," be declared, "from too
labor of children whose bones are ground
Into almighty dollars. It la a sad com
mentary. Men walk the streets In Idleness
In ths textile districts while the mills are
tiled with busy children. Instead of labor
being crowned with honor and dignity, Its
rightful heritage, It Is a question of how
much labor can be aqueezed out of ths
laborer and how little wages he can be
forced to accept In return.
Talks of Shorter Hoars.
Mr. Oompers discussed the question of
shdrter hours at length, declaring ths coun
tries of long hours were decidedly backward
and denied the allegation that shorter hours
would mean the decadence of the United
States aa a great producing power. Ha de
clared that there was no greater conservator
f ths people than the labor organisations.
"One hundred and fifty thousand men In
ths anthracite region have bean engaged In
a silent fight tor three months and there has
been less violence thaq Is committed st a
picnic of ordinary people on ordinary occa
sions. Ths men struggling today had been
reduced to a stats of serfdom, but In ths last
three years they have been recast. Their
manhood Is aroused, and I believe; as Ood.
Is my Judge, the worst the miners have to
confront Is past." (Great applause.)
. Mr. Oompers declared that ths lawyer Is
Incompetent to discuss the Industrial ques
tion. "Ths lawyer Uvea In and studies ths
past," ha said. "While he la faolng phys
ically forward hs Is mentally In the dark
ages." Thia observation waa brought out
by the alleged remark of a Mr. Rooe. ths
legal representative of the Delaware, Lack
awanna A Western that there "can be no
arbitration, that the miners must first re
turn to work and ths companies will dis
cuss ths matter with them." "We demand
ths right to bs heard by counsel," declared
ths speaker. ' "Just imagine tha miner being
forced back to. work with an ths grievances
hs may have had squeesed and starved out
of him!"

posed government compulsory .'arbitration,

the only name other than Hitchcock's that

to be the twelve vote In South Omaha and

CHICAGO, Aug. 16 Oscar Thompson
wss held to the grand Jury today by
juage o. w. ration on ths chargo
ot Having murdered Mrs. Anna B
Bartholin. At the same time John Claffy,
the old atableman, who Is better known as
"Daddy," was held as an accessory after
the fact to the murder of Miss Minnie
Mitchell. Thompson also waa held on this
daffy's bond was fixed at $3,000. but the
court declined to fix a bond for Thompson
as the murder charge, on which he waived
examination, does not permit of accepting
surety for the accused. The two men were
taken to the county Jail. No attempt was
made to give bond .for Claffy, as the pri
mary object of the attorneys acting for
him and Thompson was to get the prisoners
out of the hands of Inspector Hunt and
free from his "aweatbox" methods.
Shortly before noon Attorney Michael W.
Meagher appeared before Judge Patton with
a petition signed by Julius Aagard, Thomp
son's employer, for a writ of habeas cor
pus. Notice of the application was served
on Inspector Hunt Immediately with or
der to bring the prisoners Into court at
S o'clock. " At that hour the inspector, ac
companied by tftlef O'Neill and Lleuten
ants Wood and Backus, appeared with the
prisoners. Assistant City Prosecutor Hugh
Murray represented the police and informed
the court that Inspector Hunt was pre
pared to "book the priuoneti" and make
formal charges against them.
On this understanding Mr. Meagher
agreed to withdraw his application for the
prisoners' release and said they could
waive examination on the charges ' filed
against, them.
Prosecutor Murray Immediately filed for
mal charges against Thompson and Claffy,
which were Supported in each case by an
affidavit by Joseph D. King, accusing ths
two teen. King is a patrolman at tha
Englewood station and he arrested Thomp
son.' "There will b no attempt to give bond
for Claffy at this time," Said Attorney
Meagher. "Our desire Was ' to havs him
and Thompson transferred from the Hyde
Park station to the County Jail, -so they
will not be Subjected to the 'aweatbox
process longer." '
During the afternoon Edward Counselman
was arrested snd taken to the Hyda, Park
police station, where Inspector Hunt
learned that the prisoner had received a
letter-from William Bartholin,' July 11,
begging him for money.. The lettet stated
that .Bartholin "waa in a heap of trouble"
and must raise $60 Immediately.
.- The police Itiaiucd tsday that Bartholin
bad sold some furniture on. July 16 to a
second-hand dealer for $5.- The furniture
waa taken away, the wagon driving up to
the bouse about noon. This was eight
days after Mrs. Bartholin was last seen.

Rights of Herman Emperor to Inter
vene In Loral Affairs of the Con
federate States Are
BERLIN, Aug. 18. Emperor Wlllism's
telegrsphlc offer to the regent ot Havana,
Prince Lultpold, to donate $25,000 from his
prlvste purse for buying works of art, has
caused a political commotion of extraordi
nary proportions.
It Is treated as a constitutional question,
Involving the right of the emperor to In
tervene in local questions of the Confeder
ate states. The expression especially ob
jected to Is his majesty's "displessure st
the mean ingratitude displayed" by the
Bavarian diet in refusing to appropriate
$25,000 for art.
The ecclesiastical feeling aroused adds to
tha intensity of ths feeling, for It was tbs
centrists who defeated the motion out of
pique at the ministry for not supporting
Dr. von Tandamann, minister ot educa
tion. In appointing Prof. Chroust to a chair
of Wuerzcburg university. The faculty ob
jected to the professor, alleging that he was
a czecb.
This was purely a Bavarian question, but
Instantly became an Imperial question
through the kaiser's telegram, every news
paper In the empire taking sides and fill
ing its editorial page with Its constitu
tional views, those in opposition averring
that hit majesty's act was only one of a
series of steps tending to increase the pre
rogatives of the emperor beyond the limits
fixed by the constitution, sssertlng that the
constitution Is what the country permits
the chief executive to Interpret, and claim
his msjesty is weak in not withstanding the
encroachments of the'erown.
Certainly, half of the country shares the
emperor's sentiments, but some of bis maj
esty's defenders say that his public ex
pressions wore injudicious. Others assert
that Emperor William's telegram was
merely a personal expression of what he
regarded as being a slight to a brother
monarch, and aay that his offer to contrib
ute the money required was simply an ac
tive expression of his love tor srt. Em
peror William as a subscriber for a hun
dred tickets in a lottery of "Friends of
Art Society" at. $3.75 each has been a con
tinuous winner of prizes, and an explana
tion Is printed In the newspapers because
of the frequency of his majesty's name
appearing as a winner on the lottery list
ot the society. It is pointed out that tha
emperor buys one-tenth of all the tickets,
and the proceeds are devoted to the pur
chase of art works for public galleries.
The crisis In German electrical Industry
Is occasioning much discussion regarding
finding a remedy tor the present ruinous
competition and bringing the producing ca
pacity of the works more In harmony with
th rVpf demands. The bank for elec
trical undertakings of Zurich, owned by ths
Allgemeine Elektrlcltaeta Geseelsbaft of
Berlin, discusses ths situation in Its yearly
report, just issued, and concludes that tha
European electrlcsl companies must adopt
the American trust Idea, getting all tba
works under one management and then
shutting down the unprofitable ones till
the situation improves.
The Blelcbroeder family hare .caused the
automobile that killed Baron George von

L. I., after the war with SDaln.
Official statements from tha admiralty all
deny overcrowding, but the fact remtns
lhat after Indignant protests from Aus
tralia the transport' Auranla, then on t'he
eve of sailing from Capetown, before pro
ceeding disembarked 620 officers and men,
thua admitting that the ship waa crowded
te this extent.
Even more serious from a national point
of view than the transport, remount and
commissary scsndala is the problem ot
caring for the hordes of discharged soldiers
now clamoring for employment. There It
no question but the various relief organi
sations accomplished a vast amount of good
throughout the war and they are still doing
so. They disbursed literally millions of
pounds sterling In aid of widows, orpbana
and Invalids, but now ths workhouses of
ths United Kingdom are filled with time
expired men and in all the big towns masses
of. volunteers snd reservist are vainly
seeking fresh situations in place of those
their employers promised to hold open
till after the war, but who did not do ao.
Strangely enough, while the cities are
glutted with men out of employment, ths
farmers in all aectlona ot the country are
reported to be lamenting the wearth of

LONDON. Aug. It. There Is a decided
lack of publlo Interest in the settlement

official and otherwiae, has not resulted thus

United Statea embassy seems to have sap

sppllc&tlons during the psst month. None,
however, could be properly classed ss em

parent fulfillment of their prophecies that
the wages of the whites would bs lower un
der the British than under the Boer regime.
The alwaya acute problem of working ths
mines is now mors difficult than aver. It Is
said that ths snpply of workmen It tOO.OOO
