CHICAGO, ' April ). -Anticipating that
today's peace conferences In Miiyor Dunne's
office would be futile, the Chicago Federa
lion of Labor, without waiting for an
nouncement of the result of the negotia
tlons, appealed to President Roosevelt and
Governor Deneen for assistance in the
Fearing thiit troops may be sent to Chi
cago to preserve order during tho strike,
the above organization has asked both the
president uiui th governor to investigate
he situation In Chicago before taking, any
action. To facilitate the matter a com
mutes was appointed with ordets to com
municate with both the president and Gov
ernor Deneen, President Roosevelt will
visit Chicago May 8. but It Is the intention
of the labor body to get In communication
with him Immediately. .
, A determined effort on the part of Mayor
Dunne and h! peace committee, composed
of five cltizeru., one of whom was a woman,
to bring about an amicable settlement of
the strike was an absolute failure, and all
peace negotiations for the present, at least,
' have been dechired oft.
The Indications tonight are that the
strike Is bound to spread to other firms.
Both sides seem determined in the stand
they hav taken. All members of the Em
ployers" association will Insist on all of
their union tenmsters making deliveries to
, the concerns already Involved in the strike.
A refusal on the part of any driver ( to
comply with this request, the employers
declare, will be met with Instant dis
missal. The Teamsters' union has declared that
in every Instsnea where a union teamster
is discharged for this reason, every union
driver employed by the firm making the
dismissal will be ordered on strike. With
both sides In this frame of mind there
seems to be nothing which can prevent a
rapid spread of the strike.
' Laying In Supplies.
Chicago had on Us working clothes today,
and to anyone without a knowledge of the
fight going on here between capital and la
bor, an examination of the calendar waa
- necessary, to. rna,ke. certain that It was Sun
day. From "daylight this morning until
dark tonight the downtown streets were
' crowded with heavily laden wagons and
trucks, giving the city a weekday appear
ance that waa never witnessed here before
on the first day of the week.
Believing that the fight now going on
for supremacy between the Employers' as
sociation of Chicago and the union team
sters, Is to be a protracted one, the busi
ness 'men of the city took advantage of
the suspension of regulaT business today
to procure an extra supply of material
and supplies. Every available team and
evan one-horse vehicles were brought Into
use during the day for the purpose of re
plenishing coal bins a,nd to obtain other
material necessary to the transaction of
business. Tomorrow being the flrst of May,
which la moving day In Chicago, the
furniture' vans In the rcsldonce districts
added to the week day appearance of the
city. Fearing that the furniture drivers
might become Involved In the difficulty,
the majority of those who under normal
conditions would have sought their new
homes tomorrow, decided to take no
chances and made the change today.
While all these preparations were going
on for an emergency?- efforts were being
made in Mayor Dunne's office at the city
kali to bring about a possible adjustment
of the strike. Early In the day representa
tives of the Employers made a peace com
mission consisting of Bishop C. P. Ander
son of the Episcopal church, Jenkln LloSM
Jones or Ail houis' cnurrn, nr. tmn u.
iHlrseh of Banal temple Miss June Addams
Hull house, and Dr. Cornelia DeBey of
..Neighborhood house. At the end of this
conference a committee representing the
unions met the citizens' committee and
went .over the entire strike situation in
an effort to devise means to bring about a
peaceable ending of the controversy.
Federation Adopts Resolutions.
The Chicago Federation of Labor was
also busy considering the strike situation,
but no action was taken to spread the
strike to the affiliated unions. Believing
that tho Teamsters are Justified in the
fight they arc making the federation
passed the following resolutions:
Whereas, the Employers' association and
its allies of thin city have declared their
deliberate Intention to crush out of ex
lsteuie oil - labor organisations and.

negotiations Between the Powers
May Yet Result In lout
Plan of Action.
VIENNA. April SO. (Special Cablegram to
The Bee) Negotiations between the powers
respecting the arrangement of a reform
program for Macedonia continue. England
recommends that the control to be estab
lished over tha finances shall be exercised
not alone by the two entente powers, Rus
sia and Austria, but by all the powers.
This scheme is founded upon the circum
stance that all the powers are actively in
terested in the financial condition of Tur
key and that the dette publlqua is an in
tr national institution, Russia alone not
being represented on it.
It Is argued that the control of Mace
donian finances must be exercised In any
caae by all the powers, and It is believed
that neither Austria nor Russia would ob

While his mother was dodging a shower
of bricks rained at her through doors and
windows by an Infuriated husband Sunday
morning. Leo Osborn leaped from his bed
to protect her and emptied a charge from
shotgun Into the head of his father, John
D. Osborn. Tbe old man dropped In his
tracks without a word and after a few
convulsive movements of the limbs there
was no action to tell whether or not life
was extinct. '
The wife, running to where her hus
band lay, saw that he was yet breathing
and tried vainly to call him back to life,
while the boy, dased by the awful conse
quences of his deed, sat on the bed as one
bereft of reason.
Neighbors who heard the shot rushed in
to assist Mrs. Osborn and others tele
phoned to the police station. The
wounded man was removed to Clarkson
hospital, where he died two hours after
the shooting without having regained consciousness.
The shooting was done at 7 o'clock at
the home of the Osborns. 1403 Brown
street. The story In detail, as told by
Mrs. Osborn, Is that she had risen at the
usual hour and was preparing breakfast.
Her son Frank, a 16-year-old boy, sat in
the kitchen with her. Leo was asleep in
the next room, while her husband and
three daughters were asleep in other parts
of the house. She had put. the potatoes
on to fry and vas cutting some meat.
Feared Her Husband's Temper.
"We will bb real quiet and get our
breakfast before your father gets up,"
she said to Frank. "You know he is al
ways crosser on Sunday mornings than any
other time. Then we will not have to stay
In the house while he eats, and maybe he
will go out to hoe in the garden without
Even as she said this the man came from
his sleeping room and began to look about
the kitchen. He found fault with various
things and said he did not like the meat
she Intended having for breakfast.' It
was meat for boiling and he didn't want it
fried, neither did he like the size of the
slices she was cutting. He went from
the house, slamming the door and cursing
Proceeding to the garden he took the
hoe and made a furrow in which to plant
peas. Then he came back toward the
house with hi left arm full of brick bats.
About thirty feet away he stopped and
began a bombardment of the kitchen. One
brick crashed through the window and
landed among the dlBhes on the table, an
other shattered a panel in the door.
Through the hole two others . came, one
knocking down the stove pipe, the second
smashing into a tank which sat on top of
the stove. , - -

'., Son Shoots the Father.
Mrs. Osborn, ,i who always went to her
boy Leo for protection in times of danger,
dodged the missiles and ran frantically
back aud forth between his room and the
kitchen. Frank sat in one corner, where
he would not be struck and the girls had
not appeared yet. When the stovepipe
went down Leo hurried into his clothes
and Btepped into the kitchen with a shot
gun In his nana. As he came before the
shattered door he saw his father in the
yard in the act of throwing. He raised
the run and fired.
The flrst neighbor to appear on the
scene was Robert Williams. He heard the
report and made she remark that some
one had shot a cat. Nevertheless he went
to Investigate, and looking over toward the
Osborps' house he saw Osborn lying on
the ground and his wife running to him.
He hurried to help her and together they
raised the wounded man's head and shoul
ders and placed him on pillows. After a
few minutes Leo' collected himself suf
ficiently to come out with Frank. The
girls, who had risen now, were crying
around the fallen form of their father.
Mrs. Osborn sat on the ground and rocked
herself back and forth in grief, repeating
all the time: ,
"Oh John, If you will only come to life
again I will go away from you and you
will not be tempted to abuse me any
The police ambulance came on the run
at the first reports, and In about a half
hour Osborn waa being taken to the Clark
son hospital. He died there at 9:06.
. Dased by Ills Deed.
For fear that Leo Osborn might resist
arrest rive officers were sent to set
Seigeant Cook, Detectives Baldwin and
Home and Officers Vanuus and McCarthy.
J Tliey met with no resistance, for the boy
won iihu one in a aream. in the spot
where he had pulled the trigger he stopd
before the broken door, passing his hands
across his dazed head and looking out
into the garden where bis father had
fallen. By bis side, against the wall, stood
the shotgun. He suffered himself to be
led away to the patrol wagon without a
At the station he was lodged in a cell
for several hours and then brought into
the office of Captain Mostyn. At first he
was sullen and would not look at the cap

"You shot your father?" queried Captain
"Yes," was the answer.

"He is dead now," said the captain.
There was no answer.
"Why did you do it?"
"I never saw him when I shot. I did it
to scare him."
The prisoner is 20 years old. He worked
for the Omaha Packing company at 1502
Cuming street. According to his mother,
ha is not in the best of health, but Is
troubled with SL Vitus' dance.

TRAGEDY AT ARMY POST
Captain Italhourn Shoots I.leotenant
Point at Fort Douglas and Then
SALT LAKE CITY", Utah, April 30 Cap
tain W. A. Raibourn, Twenty-ninth in
fantry, U. S. N., committed sutcldo at Fort
Douglas early today after making a mur
derous asxault on Lieutenant William H.
Point, also of the Twenty-ninth Infantry.
Point was shot twice by his superior oftl
cer, one bullet penetrating his left thigh
and another inflicting a deep flesh wound
In his right leg. After Lieutenant Point
had fallen. Captain Raibourn turued his
revolver upon himself, sending a bullet
into his head about three Inches behind his
right ear. He died almost instantly.
Captain Raibourn bad been drinking
heavily, and the tragedy was the out
growth of his arrest on Tuesday last on a
charge of drunkenness.
On Tuesday of Inst week Captain Rai
bourn was appointed officer of the day at
Fort Douglas, but in I led to report for duty
and waa absent In the. city twenty hours
without leave. He was arrested the fol
lowing day, but was given the privileges
of the fort under orders not to leave the
grounds. On Saturday evening Captain
Raibourn broke the parole and came to the
city. Lieutenant Point, who was sent after
him with an ambulance, found him In a
Main street saloon and, he was returned
to Fort Douglas under arrest. He was
ordered to remain in his quarters.
Lieutenant Point's quarters are about two
doors from those which Captain Raibourn
occupied. The lieutenant had Just stepped
out of doors early today, when Captain
Raibourn appeared, carrying a heavy 45
callbre revolver. His manner was threat
ening and Point said: "Now, captain,
don't do anything foolish." Raibourn made
no reply, but immediately began shooting.
When other officers and soldiers ran out
after hearing the shots, Captain Raibourn
lay dead and Lieutenant Point lay in front
of his quarters. He is said to be resting
well. Raibourn's body was embalmed at
the post hospital and tomorrow it will be
shipped to Oakland City, Ind., where his
mother and two sisters reside. He has a
brother in Chicago. v
Captain Raibourn had sought to avoid a
court-martial and had forwarded to Wash
ington his resignation from the army.
It had not been aocepled and It was
supposed that a trial by court-martial
awaited him. Worry over the probability
of a dishonorable discharge from the army
and dissipation are believed to have un
balanced his mind. Captain Raibourn, who
was 35 years old and unmarried, enlisted
in the army In 1891 as a private and had
worked his way up from the ranks. Cap
tain Raibourn and Lieutenant Point had
served together in the Philippines and were
Lieutenant Point entered the army as
captain of the Fifty-first Iowa volunteers
and later was appointed to the regular
service. He has passed the examination
and qualified for promotion to a captaincy.
Captain Raibourn formerly was regarded
as an efficient officer, but recently he had
been drinking hard and could not be relied
upon for duty. .

Willard Johnson, uged IS, of 3716 North
Thirtieth street; George Teats, aged 20, of
Seventeenth and, Cass streets, and Carl
Llndquist, aged 20,- of Thirty-fourth and
Spauldlng streets, were drowned in Cut Off
lake at 4:30 o'clock Sunday afternoon.
Willie Johnston, aged 18, of 8714 North
Thirtieth street, and Rollio Alsman, aged
'J, of Thirty-first and Plnkney streets, were
with the party and narrowly escaped
drowning. The bodies of the drowned men
were recovered and were taken In charge
by Coroner Brailey.
' The young men were in a skiff about
midway between Swift's Ice house and
Courtland Beach. The wind was blowing
hard at the time. Llndquist, in a spirit of
bravado, was rocking the skiff. He was
sitting In the stern and' rose to his feet
and continued to rock the boat. A sud
den lurch caused him to lose, his balance
and he fell across the gunwale. The others
became alarmed and in the struggle for
safety the skiff was upset, throwing all
of them into the water.
Drowned Men Tried to Swim.
The three who were drowned started to
swim to the shore. Willie Johnston and
Rollie Alsman clung to the skiff. It ap
pears that at this moment the young men
were not much alarmed, for Willie John
ston says he heard Llndquist cry out that
he would beat the others swimming to the
shore. The wind was blowing so hard that
the waves interfered with the struggles of
the young men, and this, with the effects
of the sudden plunge Into the ice cold
water, soon weakened them and they be
gan to cry for help. The two boys who
had clung to the boat were doing all they
could to attract help from the shore.
In a few minutes se-veral skiffs put out
from Courtland beach, but before they
could reach the struggling men Teats had
gone down. Harry Favey of 2610 South
Fifteenth street, who was fishing on the
pier at Swift's ice house, said that after
one of the men had disappeared, the other
two seemed to be struggling together, and
one had his arms around the other's neck.
While struggling together they both sank.
It is believed that it was Llndquist who
made the effort to save Johnson. The boys
who were on the boat did not see this
struggle, but the boy Favey thinks it was
the same man who was rocking the boat
that tried to save Johnson.
Swam for Ten Mlnntes,
The men were in the water about ten
minutes before the three had disappeared
The two boys on the skiff were rescued and
taken to the Swift boarding house on the
north side of the lake. Aside from a thor
ough ducking and a bad fright they were
unharmed. They were soon afterwards
brought. to the city by J. B. Johnston, the
father of .Willie Johnston
Rescuing parties by this time were at
work dragging for the bodies of the three
who had drowned. Anton Mork and ' C.
Christaffersoh of 1630 South Tenth street
soon recovered one body. It was Identified
by papers as that of Llndquist. The body
of Johnson was recovered by Frank Brown
and James Oakley of Courtland beach. The
body of Teats was the last . recovered, a
man named Tom Pollard being the finder.
Some effort was, made to resuscitate John
son, as it appeared that life was not ex
tinct. But it was not successful. The po
lice were promptly notified and Emergency
Officer Baldwin, accompanied by the cor
oner, 'went to tha scene and took charge
of the bodies as they were recovered.
Had Been Drinking:.
According to Willie Johnston, the boat had
been hired by Teats and Llndquist. They
picked up Johnson at some point and after
wards rowed towhere Willie Johnston and
Alsman were fishing. They landed the boat
and Llndquist proposed that one of the
party go for a bucket of beer. This was
done, and, after drinking It, a second and
third bucketful was bought and drank.
Willie Johnston says that after drinking a
little beer from the first bucket he went a
short distance away from the party and i
