Intalliif Process.
CHICAGO. Aug. IS. Development! today
In the Bartholin-Mitchell murder mystery
have led the police to believe they are
nearer the aolution of the problem that has
been putzllng tbem for over a week than
ver before.
Edward Counselman. the Intimate friend
of William J. Bartholin who vu held for
possible knowledge of the crime, waa taken
before Justice Qulnn today and held for
.ten daya in bonda of )10,000. charged with
being accessory after the fact in the mur
ders of Minnie Mitchell and Mn. Anne
Bartholin. Counselman admitted be had
met Bartholin and that Bartholin laid he
waa In trouble over Minnie Mitchell. -
The moat damaging teatlmony aa to Coun
elman'a possible guilty knowledge of the
murdera of the two women came from a
Dew wltneaa whom the police found today
W. M. Allen, a fellow workman of Coun
aelman'a. Allen aald that Counaelman had
told hlra repeatedly that he knew a great
deal about the trouble Bartholin waa In.
When Allen suggested that Counaelman
toll the police what he knew the latter
aald he would do no such thing, that Bar
tholin waa his friend and that he waa too
ahrewd for the police. Allen aald that
Counaelman even expressed the opinion that
Bartholin bad easily had time to reach the
Allen said that Counaelman expressed, the
greatest anxiety over the case aa It devel
oped In the newspapers and that frequently
Counselman would walk from the suburb of
Harvey, where the two men worked, aa far
as Kensington, to secure the papers. For
three daya Counselman did not do any
work because of nervousness. The police
have the testimony of another wltneea, who
la positive he saw Counselman and Bartholin
together on August 7, the day the body of
Minnie Mitchell waa found.
It la the purpose of the police to put
Counselman through the sweating ordeal
today, and they aay they expect valuable
results. Counselman'a wife begged him
repeatedly to tell the police what be knew,
but so far Counaelman baa been obdurate.
A note from Bartholin to Counselman asking
for money and saying that the writer was
In trouble la held by the police. It was
this note which Counselman had tried to
secure from hia wife by choking her that
led to hi arrest.
The postponed inquest over the body of
Minnie Mitchell will be resumed today.
It la probable that a verdict will be re
turned with recommendations that the men
,now in cuatody be held to the grand Jury.

ing of Thla Tribe.
MANILA, Aug. IS. The Moroe on Min
danao are renewing their attacks upon the
outpoata and pack trains of the American
column at Lake Lanao, which Is under the
command of Captain 1. J. Pershing, of the
Fifteenth cavalry. The Americans have Suc
cessfully repulsed the Moro attacks and
have Buffered,' no.leaaea. . The commanders
of the American forces on Mindanao re
port aggressive-, aetton agalnat the Moroe
to be necessary and aBk permission to
move agalnat Bacolod ' and other strong
hold! of the hostile Mohammedans. There
are about 2,000 American soldiers on Min
danao available for the dealred aggreaalve
move. It la believed that thia la sufficient
to defeat the Moroa. though It would poasl
bly be necessary to strengthen their base
before undertaking the movement.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 18. A cable dis
patch has been received from General Chaf
fee stating that in his Judgment an active
campaign agalnat the Moroa tn Mindanao
was necessary in order to curb the opposi
tion that has been growing agalnat United
States authority. The dispatch was con.
sldered of sufficient Importance to be re
peated to President Roosevelt at Oyater
Bay. .
.General Chaffee haa been directed to use
his own discretion In the matter and will
no doubt engage in an aggressive move
ment against the Insurgent Moroa. Some
time before Secretary Root left Washington
the Moro situation - waa under considera
tion, and from a dispatch then at hand the
secretary was of the opinion that the Moroe
must be dealt with severely before they
would respect the authority of the United
States. , '
General Chaffoe la now in Mindanao, hav
ing left Manila some daya ago. If the cam
paign ahould continue tor some time he no
doubt will remain In the Philippines Instead
of leaving on September SO, as. he had
planned. It Is understood a the war de
partment that General Chaffee has sufficient
troops to make aa active campaign. .' ;

Gates Faction at Colorado Fael aad
Iron Company Woatd Fettle, bat
Osajood Mrs Refase.
DENVER, Colo., Aug. 17. Two Important
features today of tke fight for eontrol of
the Colorado Fuel and Iron company were
the rejection by the Oegood faction of a
proffer of compromise from the Gatea fac
tion and the filing of the answer to the
Gates' suit for an Injunction against the
officers In the federal eourt.
A meeting of the board of directors was to
have been held today, but do quorum was
present, as all but two 'of the directors
who are supporting John C Osgood In his
efforts to retain control remained away.
John W. Gates requested J. A. Kebler.
president of tbe company. In whose office
the directors favorable to Gates had as
sembled, to go to the office of Mr. Osgood,
who Is chairman of the board of -directors,
and ask him to attend" the meeting, in order
that a compromise might be discussed.
Mr. Osgood refused to accept the Invitation
and aald that he would not listen to any
compromise. Mr. Gates seemed to be net
tled at the turn affairs had taken, and
stated later that he would continue the
fight Indefinitely and waa sure to gain con
trol. .
The answer filed In the federal court de
nies that the court haa Jur'sfiletton, alleg
ing that the sum Involved le lets than
$2,000, and declares that the suit 'was Im
properly brought. 1
It alleges that in the demands made by
the different persona to see tbe books of
tbe company no proper evidence waa In
troduced to show that they were the real
owners of the stock which they purposed
to hold. It states that no book had' been
prepared ahowlng the names of peraons
who hold the stock but that the secretary
was Instructed at a recent meeting to
prepare such a book and that he la doing
so with all possible speed. ' The answer
alleges that Gates does not hold the num
ber of proxies that he claims to hold, and
that Osgood has a majority of the votes.
In an affidavit Mr. Osgood states that he
has been asked by John W. Gates, Charles
M. Schwab and others to dispose of the
company to the steel trust and that the
efforts to depose him followed his refusal.
Judge Rtner announced that he would
limit arguments for each side to four hours.

the plaintiffs, andhe will be followed to

Annual Report, In Which He
Makes Mrennons De-fen se of
the Ktnderaarteas.
In the course of proceedings at a regular
meeting laat evening the Board of Educa
tion became Involved In an animated and at
times acrimonious discussion at to proper
application of Its own rules of government,
and even en appeal to Roberts' Rules of Or
der failed to completely restore harmony,
The question' arose In connection with a
report of the committee on sslariea, set
ting forth, la substance, that the commit
tee Was of the opinion that the amount
allowed by the rules for the salaries of
clerks In the offices of the superintendent
of Instruction, the secretary of the board
and the principal of the High school were
not sufficient to get ths needed help In
those offices, and, while the 'committee
would not recommend at this time any
change In the rules,- It would recommend
that the superintendent and secretary be
allowed such ' additional sums for clerk
hire, respectively, as taken In connection
with the amounts now paid would make the
total in each Instance 180; and that the
principal of the High school be allowed

Barnard Warms I'p,
When thla report was presented Presi
dent Barnard declared that he considered
the plan which it proposed to be merely
"beating the devil about the stump," as
Its adoption would be practically a sus
pension of the rules.
Robert Smith took the floor to protest
against tbe remarks of the chair, which
he declared to be in .bad taste since no
question had been ralaed on the floor. He
advocated the adoption of the report as a
perfectly proper manner of correcting
what he believed to be an Injustice which
had been done In the rules fixing salaries.
Mr. Wood questioned the privilege of
the chair to enter upon discussion of a
measure before the house when bis dis
cussion of that question might prejudice
him In ruling.
Mr. Howard said that the evident pur
pose of the report was to avoid a suspen
sion of the rules, and as far as he could
see no attempt had been made to disguise
that fact He was In fawor of the adop
tion of the report.
Mr. Mcintosh thought that If the board
believed the salaries of the young women
In question to be Insufficient the proper
course would be to suspend the rules and
Increase the salaries in the regular way.
Wood Charges Discrimination.
Mr. Wood suggested that the president
had discriminated in his rulings upon en
forcement ef the piles and had even voted
to expend money In the manner now pro
posed. He argued that the board could
expend the funds of the board In any man
ner it should deem proper by a majority
Vote. .
After some further discussion the chair
ruled the report . out of order and Mr.
Wood appealed from the decision, which
was upheld by a vote of five ayes and seven
nays. A motion to suspend the rules was
then lost by a vote of T to 5.
A substitute resolution by Mr. Mcintosh
to Ax, the salaries qf the clerks In tbe of
fices of the superintendent el Instruction.
the secrPtary "of the board and the princi
pal of the' high school was lost. - '
President Barnard entered Into further
discussion of the matter and Robert Smith
questioned his right to discuss a measure
from the chair, whereupon the president
declared it to be an outrage that a mem
ber of the. board should so question the
president's right. . A second motion to put
the previous question was ruled out by the
ohalr, and on an appeal this action was
overruled by a vote of 8 to 3.
;' Report Finally Adopted.
' The question on the adoption of the re
port waa then put by the secretary and
carried by a vote of 8 to 2, the president
not voting.
A resolution by Mr. Wood providing that
Inasmuch as the board bad found It would
have $9,000 more at its disposal than was,
supposed, the salaries of employes should'
be restored to their former figures was re
ferred to the committee on salaries.
On recommendation of the committee on
