He had laaued a call last night for a meeting today In continuation of tha turbulent session .which ha adjourned without hour yeater day noon. Before entering tha convention, which la atlll being held behind cloaed door. Mr. Buchanan refused to discuss an phase ot the situation. Yesterday at hla hotel ha had declared that tho session presided over by tha Parka crowd, which had un seated Delegate Brophy, holding a proxy from Bcranton, was unconstitutional, and It naturally was assumed that he would so hold when he called the convention to - order In regular aeaslon today. There were early Indications that any such course would be stubbornly fought by the Parka element, and Samuel Parka said, before he led hla defegatlon Into the convention this morning, "Our acta were proper and they will atand. ' If President Buchanan refuses to abide by tr.n the convention will jo on without May Be Expelled. It ha been stated that J'. W. Keller, a member of local union No. of New York City, would be expelled from the anion for refusing to vfe, Yesterday to unseat Brophy, and whe?$r,hla action waa taken he would no longer' be entitled to sit In the convention.

Today, however, ' he denied that he had sent auch a telegram and aald: "Ms. Keller will continue to alt In the conven tion. If he Is ousted from the union it will be in the regular way, after we return to New York." The regular order of business this morn ing from the standpoint of the Buchanan element wa the consideration of the writ ' ten protest filed on Wednesday evening agalnat Delegate Daniel Brophy, which de manded that the first vote of unseating Brophy be reconsidered. Peace la Patched I' p. Peace waa patched up between the Buchanan and Parka factlona in the In ternational Association of Bridge and Structural Iron Workers at their annual convention here thla afternoon. President Buchanan had scarcely called the convention to order In regular session when the Parks crowd expressed a desire to ignore the proceedings of their own rump meeting yesterday and proceed in a regular way. Then the convention took a formal vote to reconsider the vote by which Daniel Brophy, a member of local No. I and who held a proxy from Bcranton, Pa., bad been aeated. Brophy waa unseated by a good majority. Aa he aroae to leave the hall Bamuel Parka advanced toward him with extended hand. Brophy refused to shake Ttanda with the walking delegate until tha latter apologised for the stinging words directed against Brophy on Thursday. This Parka did in full and when the door closed upon Brophy the convention settled down for the first peaceful session since It convened last Monday. The convention then was forrnally organ lied and stopped long enough In their quarrels to listen to tha annual address of President Buchanan, which waa to have been delivered on Tuesday. fl'aekaaaa Kakea Address. President Buchana aald he waa glad to report that notwithstanding numerous labor disturbances during the last year the asso ciation la now-stronger and larger than ever before.

The agreement then made with tha Structural Iron Manufacturer and Erec tors" association, one of the moat powerful associations of employers In the country, was most Important, he said, "for the fight threatened the very exlatence of our or ganization." Mmat fkel4 Contract. v He urged the necessity of every local union upholding this agreement and said; There la now a ayatematlo and organised effort of the pres throughout the country to discredit labor unions because of trelr Indifference to contract obligations, and such Is the force with which thes agencies of capital una this point that few organize' tlona can aucceed if they are once made tha target. President Buchanan made several recom mendations, urging, among other things, early affiliation with the American Federa tion of Labor. "Capital," aald he, "contlnuea to combine and consolidate and it la necessary for trade unions, if they would maintain strength, to combine with others in a like way." President Buchanan aaserted that within the last year government by injunction had assumed wider and more alarming propor tions, and recommended that the conven tion appoint a committee to advise with all the other organisations of the country for the purpoae of effecting si conference, to be held In the near future, to consider defi nite action to be taken with respect to "this great and growing evil."

CHANCES AE THAT THE WOMAN WILL DIE Was Reloading Weapon Preparatory to Rhootlnsj Himself When O Hi rers Cater and Plaee H!sa t'nder Arrest. James R. Reed, a boarder at the Goo hotel, fired four shots into the body of Glennle Hynes at her room, 1403 Webster street, about 8 o'clock last night. Reed waa only prevented from taking hla own life by the prompt arrival of Emergency Offcer Baldwin, who wrested the weayvon from his grasp when he was in the act of attempting to reload It. The injured woman was re moved to the Clarkson hospital 'and at tended by Police Surgeon MacDlarmld. Dr. Bummers, who waa called later, said ahe waa too weak to undergo an operation last night. It la the opinion of tha attending physicians that the woman cannot recover. Reed has been calling upon tha, Hynes woman since last January. On two or three different occasions he has threatened to take her life it she did not marry him. According to his own statement Reed first met the woman during January at her home, 1403 Webster street. He wa in fatuated with her from the first and asserts that she had made promises to marry him which were never fulfilled. Some time ago an agreement was entered into between thera that they were to be married In Oc--tober. The man said he was acting In good faith, but laat Thursday he called upon the woman and found a man In her room. He took her to task about it and she laughed at him. He then went to a plaoe on Sixteenth street and purchased a revolver with the Intention of killing her and himself. He put the revolver In his trunk and left It there until yesterday morning, when he decided he would commit the deed. r He called at the Hynes woman's room about t o'clock In the forenoon and found her in a very pleasant frame of mind and could not make up his mind to take her life. Again about 11 o'clock he called, and they drank four botyes of beer together. He had promised to buy her a silk dress and went from her room to the Boston store, where he ordered the dress and pnld for it. A telegram was then sent by him from the Paxton hotel stating that he had ordered the dress sent to her. This telegram waa found in tho girl's room when it waa searched by the officers. Bight Angered Reed. The thought of killing the woman had partially deserted Reed until he called at her room again at 4:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon, and found two men visiting her. She met him at the door and requested him to retire to another Apartment and wait for her as she would be ready to see him In a few minutes. During the time he was waiting he grew very angry to think that she would entertain- other men In preference to himself. After the men had left the woman entered the room where Reed was sitting. She came over to him and asked for money, at the same tirne feeling in hla pocket to see If he had any. She found no money, and aat down In a cnplr near him. He believed the proper: time had arrived to kill her and pulled the. revolver from his pocket "and fired three-shots. Aa the last shot ring out the woman Jumped to her feet and grappled with him. He placed the mus tle -of the' gun against her breast and fired twice. There were no more cartridges In the gun, so he was foroed to quit shoot ing;. He then turned and ran out of the room and entered another room on the other side of the parlor with the intention of reloading the weapon and killing him self. In attempting to get the shells Into the revolver the cylinder came out into his hand and he was trying to replace it when Officer Baldwin kicked in the door fid took the srun away from him. He had placed one ahell In the cylinder and had ' . . 'r " nis nana wnen me omcer seisea him. Two shells also lay on the dreeser by hi 1de. Five empty cartridges were picked up by the officer on the the floor of the room where Reed waa found. Th revolver whs a 18-cal!ber weapon. Peterson Locke the Door. The building in which the ahooting 00 ourred adjoined the saloon of Nels l'eter son on the west There is a door leading from th front parlor of the apartment into the saloon. When the proprietor of the saloon heard the shots fired he also heard the girl call out: "Oh, Maude, I am shot." He Immediately ploaed the floor leading into the parlor and call th po lice atatlon on th telephone, telling the desk sergeant that he thought a murder had bean committed. Maude Snyder Is a companion of the Hynes woman living In th house. The Hynes woman was tha landlady of the place. The Snyder woman had gone Into the saloon to telephone a friend and had the receiver to her ear when aha heard the shots fired. She at tempted to get Into the parlor to go to her friend's assistance, but eould not do so aa Peterson had locked the door. Just a moment before the shots were fired, William Peterson, who, la in the em ploy of the American Express company, aa a driver, stepped into the parlor of the plaoe. He heard four shots fired and saw the woman rush out of her room, wh'ch was on the south side of the house. She cried out, "He has shot me," and turning, ran back into the room. He wna the only person In the house with the exception of Reed and the Hynes woman when th crime waa committed. Hellevea Reed Crasy. Peter Goos, proprietor of the Goos hotel. said that Reed came to board with him about three months ego, and that he had been considered craxy by everyone about the hous ever since he had beep there Mr. Goo says he has heard the other boardera In the hotel alklng of the queer actions of Reed on more than one oc casion, and that he has noticed them him self almost dally. According to Mr. Goes, Reed would take crying spells. Ha would begin to weep from apparently no cause and at times would keep it up for hours. Friday evening the daughter of Mr. Goos, wno is a suiierer irora consumption, was brought home from the west. She was very ill and Read was invited into her room to see her. At sight of her he was seised with a weeping fit, and aat down and cried until he was asked to leave the room for fear It would make the girl nervous. Reed said in his confession that he came from Buffalo, N. Y. H confided to Mra. Oooa at one time that he had been married and had three children ull of whom died, together with hla wife, in the space of bout one week.

Anothar latter was addressed te Coroner Bralley, written by Reed, In which he asked the coroner to deliver bis body to the Crelghton Medical college for scientific purposes. He gave In this letter as his reason for shoot ing the woman that She had been robbing him alnce last January. He asked that no Inquest be held and closed by saying that he had no relatives or friends living. A letter written to Chief of Police Donahue stated that the writer would be dead when the paper was plnced In the chief's hands and asked that the resort where the woman lived be closed. He said that the palms which were In the woman's room and the rings which sho wore were all his and closed by stating that the woman came from Minneapolis, that her real name was unknown here and that when she left tho Minnesota city she went as a fugitive from Justice.

Two of the bullets entered the Hynes woman's breast on the right side, another entered the right shoulder and the fourth almost severed the little finger of the left hand at the. first joint. She told Dr. Mac Dlarmld when he arrived that Reed wanted her to marry him and go to Denver to live, but that she refused to do so and he shot her. She also said she was sitting still when he shot her and that sho was shot before she knew what he intended to do.

MATTHEWSON ROW hESIGNS Superintendent of Omaha and Winnebago Agencies Finally Eteps Down.

(Special Tele gram.) Superintendent C. r. Matthewson of the Omaha and Winnebago agency has resigned. In his letter of resignation to Commissioner Jones, Mr. Matthewson states that his separation from the Indian service was due solely to ill-health. For some time past Mr. Matthewson lias been very anxious to secure an appointment either In Arlsona or New Mexico, but by reaaon of places being filled the commis sioner has been unable to secure the transfer for Mr. Matthewson. . Speaking of the. resignation. Commis sioner Jones said: "I regret that Mr. Matthewson has decided to resign. Per sonally I think a great deal of the super intendent of the Omaha and Winnebago agency. Ills health, however, has been precarious for some time past, and, while I recognise that Mr. Matthewson has been desirous of quitting the service, I shall certainly do all I possibly can to secure his transfer to a more congenial climate." By -reason of the resignation of Superin tendent Matthewson the Indian office will now carry out a plan which It has had In contemplation for some time, looking to the division of the Omaha and Winnebago reservations Into two bonded school su perintendences Instead of the present ar rangement. Commissioner Jones said to day that H. Q. Wilson, superintendent of schools at the Sisseton (S. D.) agency, would be appointed to succeed Mr. Mat thewson at the Winnebago agency. As to the Omaha agency, the commissioner would not state who would be appointed, several well-known men being under con sideration. Mr. Wilson, who will assume charge at the Winnebago agency shortly after the first of next month, is regarded by the Indian office as a very careful and safe man. He goes to Nebraska with splendid recommendations and It Is ex pected that he will bring the agency to a high standard. Raral Carrlera Appointed.
