Tells Different Story.
NEW YORK, Sept. 9. Oovernor 8tone of
Pennsylvania, who came to this city today,
and made an effort to see what could be
done In settling the anthracite strike, re
turned to Harrlsburg tonight without ap
parently being able to accomplish anything.
There are rumora that the governor s visit
had effect, but George W. Perkins of J.
P. Morgan & Co., denied that there was
any change In the situation.
The governor was accompanied to the
- city by Attorney General Elkln and Sen
ator Flynn of Pittsburg. The three held
a conference of three hours' duration with
P. A. B. Widener In the offices of the
United States Steel corporation.
After th conference had lasted an hour
Mr. Widener went to see J. P. Morgan at
the letter's office and asked him to use
his Influence to end the strike. Ten min
utes later he returned to his friends and
told them that Mr. Morgan had declined
to Interfere. Before leaving the city Gov
ernor Btone gave out the following atate
tnent: Talks with Morgan.
"Attorney General Elkln, Senator Flynn
nd myself have been in consultation for
several .hours' today with P. A. B. Widener
of Philadelphia, who Is a" director of the
United Btates Steel corporation and asso
ciated with Mr. Morgan In many business
Interests. Mr. Widener Is very anxloua to
aee the atrlke ended and today took the
matter up with Mr. Morgan. We are doing
what we can."
Oovernor Stone was asked what progress
toward a settlement had been made dur
ing the conference aad whether any direct
communication had been had from Mr.
Morgan. To these questions he answered
that he had nothing to say beyond whnt
was contained In his statement, and that
the other members of the party were
fledged to silence.
Have Nothing- to Say.
' George W. Perkins, speaking for J. P.
Morgan Co., said tonight: "We have
no comment to make on Governor Stone'e
elatement. We have received no official
statement as to what occurred at the con
ference nor have we heard from Governor
Btone alnefl the conference, nor have we
anything to say on the strike situation."
President Baer of the Philadelphia &
Reading, President W. H. Truesdcl of the
Delaware, Iackawanna Western and
president Thomas P. Fowler of the New
York, Ontario ft Western had an informal
conference. After It was over President
Fowler said the situation had been gone
over thoroughly in an Informal way. Mr.
Fowler emphatically declared that there was
bo change In the attitude of the operators
and that noth ng could end tho strike but
the unconditional surrender of the striking
CINCINNATI, Sept. 9. A guest of Presi
dent Roosevelt during a portion of his trip
through Ohio when asked today If the set
tlement of the Pennsylvania coal atrlke
was discussed said It was. The president
said that the printed Interview with btm
on that subject waa Imaginative. The guest
of the president went on to say that no man
deplores the present condition more than
the president does, but he does not aee
clearly how he could take any part In dis
cussing the difference. It Is proposed that
ha shall act because he Is president.
Would Look Like a Threat.
Any Interference on his part, except by
request of both parties would be construed
Into a threat to use the great power of hla
office to coerce one side or the other. If
that really were so the action would be
Interference and not arbitration. If both
aides should make the requt-st that the
president shculd select an arbitration com
mittee he would be glad to do ao, but he
could not give hie personal time to Inves
tigation of the subject to tho end of ar
riving at a Just conclusion.
It surb a request should be made with
the agreement that the miners should be
permitted to return to work pend'ng the
decision and both to abide by the finding of
the committee, the finding to be effective
from the time the men went to work, the
president would be glad to select such a
committee. Vnlera both sides make the re
quest voluntarily be alll not feel at lib
erty to interference la the matter.
TAMAQUA. Pa., Sept. 9. Although no

everywhere with enthusiasm and were given
the promise that If necessary the men
would stay out until Christmas.

MORE INDICTMENTS ARE RETURNED
t'lrealt Attorney Believes that the
City Will Be Pnrlfled by the
Preseit Flht Against
ST. LOUIS, Sept 9. When Judge Douglas
adjourned court tonight seven of the nine
teen members of the alleged boodle com
bine of the house of delegatea were still
at large and the police and deputy sheriffs
are using their beet efforte to find them.
Developments in the case began early and
came with startling rapidity.
The most important feature of the day'a
developments was the finding of new In
dictments against nineteen members of the
combine. In addition to the charges of
bribery and perjury In connection with the
Suburban Street railroad deal, the membere
of the alleged combine now rest under ad
ditional Indictments, charging bribery.
These were found by the grand Jury be
fore which H. H. Murrell testified today
as to the city lighting scandal of 1900, In
which each member of the combine Is said
to have received 12,600 in payment for his
aervices in securing the passage of the
bill. Bonds were fixed at 115,000 for every
Indictment, making a total of $45,000 neces
sary to be secured for the release of any
one of the accused.
Locked t'p In Jail.
Early in the day former Delegates J. H.
Schuettler, John Helmes, Otto Schumacher
and Charles Gutje, and Delegate J. J.
Hannlgan, who spent the night at their
homes in the custody of deputy -sheriffs,
were locked up In Jail, because of their
failure to secure bonds. Charles Gutje was
later released In bonds of $30,000 in the
first two Indictments, but was soon re
arrested on the bribery Indictment returned
today and is still In custody, having failed
to secure additional surety. Ex-Delegate
Bench was taken Into custody some time
during the forenoon, but was soon liber
ated, Ed Butler, a wealthy local politi
cian, signing his bond to the amount of
$45,000. Butler also went surety in like
sum for Delegate Charles J. Denny and for
former Delegate T. E. Albright. He also
wanted to secure Gutje's release by filing
an additional bond of $15,000, but Judge
Douglas refused to let him sign any more.
The police and deputy sheriffs are etill
looking for Delegates Charles Kelly, for
mer Delegates Emil Hartmann, Louis
Decker, Julius Lehmann and Harry A.
The last-named was released on bond
yesterday' and the authorities want him
on the indictment found today. Faulkner
has already been convicted on the charge
of perjury In connection with the Suburban
case and found guilty. He was out pend
ing decision when Foulk'a present bomb
shell burst. Ex-Speaker of the House of
Delegates William M. Tamblyn, -who has
been in Cleveland since Circuit Attorney
Foulk began the case, will return to St.
Louis, having been arrested there today.
Now In Colorado.
"Fortner Delegate Adolph Madera Is some
where In Colorado, where the authorities
are searching for him at the request of
St. Louis officials. Ex-Speaker John K.
Murrell, Delegate Ed E. Murrell and former
Delegate George E. Robertson have turned
state's evidence and are where Circuit At
torney Foulk can find them when wanted.
Circuit Attorney Foulk, when seen this
evening, expressed satisfaction at the prog
ress being made In the fight for pure gov
ernment In St. Louis. He compared the
present expose to that of the Tweed ring
in the '70s, and said he believed that never
before, with that exception, had 'corrup
tion in public office held such sway as it
had here during the last few years.
He believed the authorities were In a fair
way to weed out the element that looked
on the public office as a place for per
sonal enrichment. Mr. Foulk said that for
many years past the municipal assemblies
In St. Louis had been dominated by com
bines that compelled the payment of large
sums of money to the members by all who
desired. the passage of bills giving valuable
Hardly a measure went through without
paying tribute. He called attention to the
oath taken by members of the combine In
a previous house of delegatea as Indicating
the extent to which they go to gain their
ends. Thus far, said Mr. Foulk, the fight
haa been mainly against the bribetaker,
but evidence Is being secured that will be
used to bring to Justice the bribegiver.
The connecting links between these two
classes of lawbreakers are being put to
gether, with the result that It was hoped
to soon have in custody some of those in
volved with the payment of large bribes.
Terms of the Oath.
It developed today that an oath was ad
ministered to each of the nineteen members
of the co'mblne whose identity were dis
closed by the confession of J. K. Murrell
yesterday. A copy of the oath has been
given to Circuit Attorney Folk and the
grand Jury. It la as follows:
I do solemnly swear before the Almighty
Ood that in associating myself and in be
coming a member of this combine I will
vote and act with the combine whenever
and wherever 1 may be ordered to do so.
And I furtherly solemnly swear that I
will not, at any place or time, reveal the
fact that there Is a combine, and that I
will not communicate to any person or per
sons anything that may take place at any
meeting of the combine.
And 1 further solemnly swear that I
should reveal the fact 'that any person in
this combine has recelveu money, I hereby
permit and authorize other members of this
combine to take the forfeit of my life In
Buch manner as they deem proper, and that
my throat may be cut, my tonnue torn out
and my body cast Into the Mtstnsxtppt river.
And all this I do solemnly swear, so help

CINCINNATI. Sept. 9. The Times-Star
thus explains its plan for McKlnley memor
ial services next Sunday:
The Idea had Its conception from the fact
that the first anniversary of McKlnley's
death falls on Sunday. It was suggested
by ministers with whom the Tlmrn-Btxr
conferred that It would be more practicable
to hold memorial services at the morning
hour, leaving all details to the churches
themselves. Telegrams were sent to news
paptua ttifuualiuut the country yesterday
afternoon and to others, asking co-operation.
From the responses there is no doubt
that the memnrlal service Idea la a na
tional one. The movement has been
started In all cities In the slates.
The first telegram from a governor was
that of Governor A. D. Candler of Georgia
and the next came the responae from Gov
ernor George K. Nash of Ohio that he had
iseued a proclamation.
The other governors responded In like
manner and the newspapers throughout
the country replied uniformly that they
approved the plan and would advocate It.
All the clergy, including thr-.-e resident
bishops, pledged thai best efforts.

He declared that President Roosevelt had
no remedy for the trust evil and that Borne

Eulosrlses the Veterans and Expresses
Ills Views on the Tension Ques
tion Campflre In the
HASTINGS, Neb., Sept. 9. (Special Tele
gram.) The sun shone brightly today and
weather conditions could not have been
Improved for the second day of the re
union. The crowd was somewhat slow
about getting out to the grounds
this morning, but when the camp
waa officially accepted by Com
mander Steele, he and Mart Howe gave
the local committee a fine compliment on
tbe work done and said It was aa neat and
well arranged a camp as they had ever had
the pleasure to preside over or attend.
Bond's military band rendered an ex
cellent concert on the ground at 10:30 and
Jeffries Twins also entertained the visitors.
Judge Norrls, the republican candidate
for congressman in the Fifth district, was
the speaker of the day and he epoke for an
hour and thirty minutes before an aud ence
of nearly 2,000 people. Commander Steele
Introduced Judge Norris, who said he never
spoke at a gathering of old settlers but
with a feeling of sadness for It brought
back the scene back in the Buckeye hills,
where an old mother had sat reading the
message from the battlefield with tears
streaming down her cheeks, thus mourning
he death of his only brother. He spoke
of slavery as the wedge that had severed
the north from the south and had caused
these two great armies to come together
on the battlefield, with all the horrors of
war, and now they reach forth their hands
and called each other brother, Just as they
should do. He gave a graphic discretion
of how the shackles of slavery were stricken
from 4,000,000 of people by Abraham Lin
coln. Live In Grandest Conntry.
He said we are living in the greatest
age In history, and we are also living in
the greatest and grandest country in the
world. He hoped the time was not far
distant when American girls would not
go to foreign countries to hunt for hus
bands who have more titles than sense. He
praised women for the work of nursing
back the sick and caring fpr the dying.
The soldier who had died on the battle
field had died In peace, but the widow
left at home sits by the fireside with a
broken heart and sees the vacant chair,
but In the great hereafter these women will
appear far above the greatest warriors.
Judge Norrls then eulogized the old sol
diers who had ottered their lives' blood
for their country, and said that the world
owed them a debt that never could be
paid. He took up the pension question and
said there were many who were wirthy,
but were not getting their Just dueij, and
that It was his opinion there shouMj only
be two questions to be answered by in old
soldier's widow to get a pension. One
waa that her husband was an old ildler
and the other was that he waa dead. Mr.
Norrls closed his address by paying it high
tribute to the members of the Grand Army
of the Republic. He was loudly cheered.
A large crowd attended the camp fire
tonight which was presided over by Chap
lain Jesse Cole of Des Moines, who ii one
of the best camp fire speakers in Grand
Army of the Republic circles.

OPENS THE DENVER GATEWAY
Inlon Pacific Makes Concessions to
Burlington and Roek Island
CHICAGO, Sept. 9. (Special Telegram.)
The Denver gateway of the Vnlon Pa
cific, which has remained closed since
1896, has been thrown open to the Roc!;
Island road, both for freight and passen
ger traffic and to the Burlington for freight
traffic. This radical change In the policy
of the Vnlon Pacific caused great surprise
today when It became generally known and
led to much speculation as to the cause.
An official of the Harrlman lines stated
that there waa nothing to be said regard
ing the matter, except that the Denver
gateway was now wide open and that It
remained for the Rock Island officials to
say how extensively It would be used tor
Pacific coast business. The new agree
ment regarding traffic was entered Into
early in August, but haa been kept a fairly
close secret until today.
The traffic relations between the Vnlon
Pacific, Southern Pacific, Oregon Short
'Line and Oregon Railroad & Navigation
company on the one hand and the Vnlon
Pacific on the other, will be of the closest
character, and will operate to the great
advantage of both Interests. The success
of the Moores in obtaining the concession
from the Harrlman interests is said to
have led to the same privilege being ex
tended to the Burlington.
The greatest advantage to the Rock Is
land will come in traffic destined for north
Pacific coast points, which hitherto has been
turned over to 'the Vnion Pacific at the
river, the latter company refusing to accept
It at Denver. Vndcr the new arrangement
the Rock Island will enjoy the long haul
on all of this business, thereby securing
an added advantage of over 500 miles.
An official of the Harrlman lines stated
that the management had decided that con
ditions had changed since the closing of
the Denver gateway and that there was no
good reason why the roads east of the river
should not have the long haul on traffic or
iginating In their territory. For one thing,
he explained, the cost of handling traffic
west of Denver by the Vnlon Pacific had
greatly decreased, .and this and other new
conditions made It good policy to throw
the Denver gateway open.
