KANSAS CITT, Sept. M. President Frank
Buchanan of the International Bridg and
Structural Iron Worker again assumed
tha chair thla mornlr.g and called the an
nual convention to order. 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. Mr. Parks Is credited
with having aent the New York local offl-

that Keller be expelled at tonight' meeting
of the union in New York.
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.

President Buchana aald he waa glad to

associations of employers In the country,

He urged the necessity of every local
union upholding this agreement and said;
There la now a ayatematlo and organised

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'

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

"this great and growing evil."

Tha ramlfyfnr influences of tha sxeat

Would we secure the full measure of the

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.
It is believed by Mr. Goos that this mis
fortune probably was the cause of unset
tling hs man's reason. The Hynes woman,
it is said, came from Minneapolis, Minn.,
te this city. '
Wills Body te College.
When searched at th atatlon Reed had
In his possession a letter from th woman
ha' shot asking I.Ira to visit her Friday
night. 8b enclosed a lock of her hair
with th latter and it was stlU In th
envelope. He also had a letter addressed
to Fred Altera, clerk of th Goos hotel, in
whloh be stated that h could tak all of
hi effect In payment of th -bill of 610
which wa due th hotel for board. 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. All of these letters were signed
James J. Reed, mechanical engineer. In
a letter found In the girl's room and which
was in Reed's handwriting he stated that
he was ambitious and would never quit
until he became a mechanical engineer with
a salary equal to that of Mr. McKeen, 13,000
per annum.
Reed has been an employe at the Union
Pad flo shops, but quit there three days ago.
since which time he has not been doing
anything. He told the clerk at the hotel
where he was stopping that the company
Was going to send him to the Grand Island
shops to work Monduy,
Reed was placed in a cell at the police
station, but no charge has as yet been
entered against him. A charge will not be
preferred until the outcome of the shooting
can be ascertained.
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.
Maud Snyder, who occupied a room in the
building where the shooting occurred, was
locked up last night as a state witness.
The correct name of the injured woman
is Cora Crlsslwell. Her husband waa killed
while employed on a railroad before she
came to Omaha. She has a daughter and
two uncles residing in Minneapolis.

CHEYENNE, Wyo., Sept 26. (Special

and an officer of the machinists' union,

ident Burt with Mr. Harrlman in New York
Is for the purpose of framing a proposition
for submission to the machinists, black
smiths and bollermakers, having for Its
object a continuance of the piecework sys
tem on the Union Pacific. The machinists
say they have an agreement signed by
Judge Cornish and Mr. Harrlman to dis
continue piecework on October 8, but they
have been led to believe that the Union
Pacific will ask that the date of this agree
ment be set forward to April i of next ear.
If such a request Is made,' says the local
union leader, the men will walk out over
the entire Harrlman lines.
The strikers also charge that the forming
of a citizens' alliance In shop towns along
the Union Pacific Is a scheme of the rail
road company to strengthen their position
and get ready for the impending strike.
Railroad officials deny thla allegation.
A number of the old strikers who have
families are getting ready to enter other

Superintendent of Omaha and Winnebago
Agencies Finally Eteps Down.
GIVES ILL HEALTH AS THE CAUSE

(From a Staff Correspondent.
WASHINGTON, Sept 26. (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.

7 to 18 years and we ar living at a colleg
town for the purpose of educating them,
"I have a gnsat work before me, as you
can aee, and I regard your Grape-Nut
very valuable assistance, for without
healthy bodies I know it Is Impossible to
build up strong, healthy brains.
"My boys all think they owe muoh to
the food Grape-Nuts, and on 'field day' or
In th foot ball season the athletic one
declaro Grape-Nuta is a great atrenthener
and muscle maker. I have no doubt they
are right, but it interests me mora to
know positively that Orap-Nuts roakea
general good health and restore th
wasted brain and nerve matter and keep
my boya normal and atrong.
"As for myself, I have been troubled
since childhood with sever sick headaches,
which all came from a disordered stomach.
There wa always troubls about digesting
my food, and thla x.esulted In violent at
taoks of headache about once every two
weeks. These wer so sever that I would
be unable to raise my head for 24 hours,
then natur would readjust herself by rest
and an- entire lack of food. Then I began
to us Grape-Nuta for breakfast and the
stomach trouble began to fade away. All
of the symptoms have gradually changed
for th better and th very few headache
I hav hid sine using Grape-Nuts have
been very light and have not Interfered
with my regular work, while I am fleshier
and stronger than ever before. I tak
great pleasure In telling my friend what
this splendid food has dons for us, not only
In th cas of my own worn-out system,
but In keeping up th health of my strap
ping young giant.
"I must speak of a tribute paid 0 rape
