PORT OF OMAHA BLOCKADED
Illinois Central Decide! that Missouri
Biter "Xa'igation is Closed."

"All hands aloft! Haul taut on the
taffrall and overboard with the capstan!
Make all snug; on the weather beam and
act the binnacle three points to port! Oct
ready with your snubbln' line and take a
hog-hltch around the Jackstaff!"
"Aye, aye, air."
It was the gallant It. C. Gunter, and It
was bravely breasting the swollen tide of
the murky Missouri. Four times had the
siren of the trim craft hoarsely hooted at
the man In the power house on the Illinois
Central drawbridge. . This Is the signal
prescribed by the War department to be
used by a boat when It wishes to announce
to the bridge man Its Intention to pass
through the draw, two long hoots and two
short hoots, and each of the hoots a
hoarse one. Anything but a hoarse hoot
doesn't go on the river. A shrill, little,
ladylike hoot gets you' nothing.
"Mavlicatlon la dosed."
But the R. C. Gunter mlgbt as well have
used a tin whistle or have saved Its steam
altogether. The drawbridge didn't draw,
not for a cent. The entire Omaha navy Is
marooned and defied by the railroad. It
can run down stream as far as it tikes, but
it can run up stream no farther than the
East Omaha bridge, for somebody con
nected with the railroad has taken this oc
casion to determine that navigation on the
Missouri river has closed. This may be
news to the War department as well as to
the owner of the steamboat, and there la
Just a faint possibility that Ben Barrows,
surveyor of the port of Omaha and ex
offlclo steamboat Inspector, hasn't heard of
the abolition of the privileges and preroga
tives of the steam-propelled craft of the
Missouri. It also takes a lot of nerve, even
for a railroad man, to declare that the Mis
souri river la not a navigable stream.
At all events the Illinois Central bridge
tender has for the last four days resolutely
refused to open the draw for the R. C.
Gunter, even when the boat has run up
with Its bow well under the bridge. The
Gunter la a light craft, built to run on a
heavy dew, and doesn't mount an arma
ment heavy enough to sink a bark canoe,
so It I at the mercy of the bridge, which
contains a trine over S.OUO.OOO pounds of
steel in the draw span alone. So, tem
porarily at least, navigation has closed on
the Missouri river.

sentatlve said: "For the last four days
the bout has approached the drawbridge
at East OinuliA with the usual four
whistles as a blgnal to open the draw to
allow the steamer to pasa, but those In
charge of the bridge have refused to swing
the draw. The matter was brought to
the attention of the local representatives
of the Illinois Central, but the contention
has been made that they are not required
to open the bridge as the Missouri here is
not open to navigation. Last evening Mr.
Baughman telegraphed Chief" Engineer
Chittenden at St. Louis, government com
missioner for the Missouri river, setting
forth the facts of the case, and an answer
is expected this morning. The steamboat

Chinese Exclusion with
OYSTER BAY, July 12.-Senator P. C.
Knox of Pennsylvania, former attorney
general, held long and Important confer
ence with the president last night at Saga
more Hill. The senator by Invitation of
the president was an overnight guest of
Mr. Roosevelt. The conference, which was
continued until a late hour, covered a
wide range of subjects, but It can be said
related to one matter In particular which
Is of profound professional and official
concern to the president. ' No statement
was made about the result of the confer
ence. Senator Knox, who left Oyster Bay
on a morning train for New York, de
clined to discuss for publication the result
of his interview with the president. It Is
not unlikely that he may go from New
York to Washington, although he had not
determined when ho left here whether It
would be necessary for him to go to Wash
ington. If, after communication with
Washington by telephone from New York,
he should And It unnecessary to go to the
capital, he will proceed direct to his home
at Valley Forge.

other sensational developments may grow

Agriculture is Investigating. In fact,
by direction of the president. Secre
tary Wilson is conducting the Inquiry along
his own lines with a determination to sift
the matter to the bottom. As heretofore

President Talks to Doctors.
President Roosevelt delivered a notable
address this afternoon before the Associ
ated Physicians of Long Island. He -lis-
cus-'ied In the course of his speech the te-
latlons physicians sustained with the people
of the communities in which they reside
and the work to be done by the medical x-
perts In connection with the construction of
the Panama canal, declaring that despite
all difficulties on the isthmus and here in
the United States the canal would be a
success. He referred to achievements of
the sanitary engineers, who cleaned the
cities of Cuba for the first time In 400 years.
Attired In a suit of rough linen and wear
ing a broad-brimmed Panama hat, the pres
ident arrived at the Oyster Bay High
school, where the meeting was held, at 8:15
p. in. He was escorted to the assembly
hall, where he was accorded a cordial e
ceptlon by the phyBlrlans, all standing.
At the conclusion of the president's ad
dress and at Mr. Roosevelt's own sugges
tion, an Informal reception was held, each
member of the association being presented
to the president.
The president's address, In part, follows:
The scientific man who is really a first
class scientific man has a claim upon tho
gratitude of all the country. The man who
is the first class neighbor and Is always
called In time of trouble by his neighbors
has an equal claim upon society at larg.
But the doctor has both claim. Yet In
addition to filling both of these functions
he may All many other functions. He may
have served In the civil war, he may have
rendered the greatest possihle service to
the community along a dozen d fferent lima
Take for Instance Just what Is being done
In one of the great works of this country at
the present time digging the Panama
canal. That is a work that only a big na
tion could undertake or that a big nation
could do, and It Is a work for all man
kind. And the condition precedent upon
success In that work is having the proper
type of medical work as a preliminary.
Now the people who flee from Panama
will carry up here Just such stories as
the people wtio flee from the forefront of
a battle carry to the rear with them. The
people to whom this country owes and
will owe so much are thuse who stay down
there and do not talk, but do their work
and do It well. Of course. In doing a
great work like that In the tropics, in a re
gion which until this government took
hold of it, was accounted to be a region
exceptionally unhealthy, we are going to
he ve troublo, have some yellow fever, have
a good deal of malarial fever and
Suffer more from the latter than from the
yellow fever, although we will hear nothing
like the talk about It. We will have every
now and then troubles as regards hygiene,
Just as we will have trouble in the engi
neering problems. Just as occasionally
we will have troubles In the administrative
work. Whenever one of these troubles
comes there will be a largo number of
excellent but timid men who will at once
say what an awful calamity it la, and
express the deepest sorrow and concern
and be rather Inclined to the belief that
the whole thing la a failure.
It will not be a failure. It will be a
success, and It will be a success because
we shall treat every little check, not as a
reason for abandoning the work, but as
a reason for altering and bettering our
plans so as to make It Impossible that that
particular check shall happen again.
Conference with Labor Leaders.
Immigration to the United States and Its
relation to the labor problem formed the
subject of a conference this afternoon be
tween the' president and two of the Im
portant leaders of organized labor, Samuel
Oompers of Washington and James Duncan
of Qulncy, Mass., respectively the presi
dent and one of the vice presidents of the
American Federation of Labor.
The conference was devoted particularly
to a consideration of the order recently Is
sued by the president regarding the en
forcement of the Chinese exclusion law.
An Impression had been gained by many
members of labor organizations that the
order to an extent at least let down Im
migration bars so far as Chinese are con
cerned. The president assured his callers,
however, that no such construction properly
could be placed on the order and that he
was Just as vigorously opposed to the ad
mission to this country of Chinese coolies
as they could be.
Mr. Oompers urged upon the president the
desirability for an Intelligent, practical and
humane consideration of the general ques
tion of Immigration by the people and by
congress. The people of the country and
of the whole civilised world are entitled, he
maintained, to such a confederation of the
Statement of Mr. Gompers
After the conference Mr. Uonspers said:
We directed the president's attention to
th Interpretation placed by some persons
upon his recent order, Isxued at the In
stance of the American Asiatic association,
concerning the admission to the United
Flhtes of Chinese. By many of our people
and by n any Chinese that order was looked
upon as a letting down of the Immigration
bars 30 far as the Chinese are concerned.
The president assured us that no proper
reading of the order would warrant such
an If ti rpretatlon und that nothing was
further from his Intention than that such
an Impret-slon should he gotten from the
order His determination Is that both
skilled and unskilled Chinese laborers shall
be excluded from the United States snd he
savs that the law will lie rigidly enforced
The order reluted to the so-called exempt
-lasses, mercliunts, students, travelers and
the like, who heretofore have had diffi
culty In gaining admission to this country
because of th many fraudulent certificates
Issued to them and to coollna who are not
entitled to crtll'uates In sny event. We
went over the entire matter thoroughly,
the emu rem being pre-eminently satis
factory to u. The president suggested
th.it In the course of Ave or six months w
agnlii bring ths matter to his attention In
the light cf the experience of that length
of tint in wcrklng under th order.
W also considered with the president th
eight-hour law and the difficulties which
we had encountered in securing its en
forcement on government work. We In
stanced violations of the law and requested
him to consider them. He asked us to pre
sent th facts in a furnial document, be re
fusing t take the suhtect at once. Mean
time n expressed himself s being In en
tire sympathy with the law and Insisted
that It must lw observed.
Our talk with the president was most
satisfactory. We discussed generally the
condition and Interests of labor, considered
the subject of more rigid regulations for
th ocluslon from this country of vicious
and Illiterate Immigrants and talked of
some legislation along these lines which
we regard as desirable.
Messrs. Oompers and Duncan left on the
afternoon train for New Tork. They had
expected to be accompanied to Oyster Bay
by John Mitchell, president of the United
Mine Workers of America, but he was un
able to meet the engagement.

PORTLAND, Ore., July 12 President W.
D. Wheelwright of the Chamber of Com
merce of this city, on behalf of that or
ganization, has sent a letter to President
Roosevelt bearing upon the question of
Chinese exclusion. The letter urges Pres
ident -Roosevelt to take "steps toward
negotiating a new treaty with China that
shall provide for the removal of the ex
acting conditions that now attach to the
entrance Into this country of their mer
chants, students and professional men, for
the absolute freedom of all Chinese resi
dents of this country to visit their own
land and return here, and for the admis
sion during the next ten years of a num
ber of male Chinese laborers that In any
one year shall not excetd one-tenth of 1
per cent of the population of this country.
American labor has little appreciation of
Its own dignity and power, as well as ot
Its capabilities for Improvement, If It
raises objections to such limited Chinese
Immigration as that amounting In ten
years to less than 1 per cent of our popu

Two Men Wanted by
WINFIELD, Kan., July ll.C. S. Calhoun
of Kansas City, an Atchison, Topeka
Santa Fe railway detective, was shot and
Instantly killed at Cedarvale early today
by two outlaws, who were shot down later
by a posse of cltliens at Hewlns, seven
miles from Cedarvale, elbse to the Okla
homa state line. One of the outlaws, Ed
Madlgan of Ponca City, Okl., was killed
Instantly by the posse. The other, William
Chadburn of thla city, was fatally wounded.
The outlaws exchanged shots with the
posse. During the exchange J. M. Pope, a
merchant, was shot through the foot and a
woman named Malnne was struck In the
leg by a stray bullet.
Madlgan and Chadburn held up and
robbed seven traveling men at the Hrettun
hotel at Wlnfleld on Sunday night last and
escaped. At Cedarvale last night Detective
Calhoon encountered both of the outlaws
on the streets. Not being positive of their
Identification, Calhoon secured the city
marshal and one of the robbed traveling
men and all three started In a carriage In
search of the two men. Early today they
drove past the men In a side street. The
traveling man Identllled them and the trio
In the carriage were Just In the act of
making a stand when either Madlgan or
Chadburn opened fire. Calhoon was shot
through the heart and the outlaws made
their escape temporarily.
The marshal and the traveling man, taken
by surprise, were unable to tire a single
shot In return.
Calhoon's body was taken to an under
taker's room and the town aroused. The
outlaws stole two horses and started for
Hewlns. While a posse was gathering at
Cedarvale word was wired ahead to
Hewlns, where the deputy sheriff quickly
gathered a score of armed men about him.
Within two hours the outlaws rode up to
a hardware store at Hewlns, secured a rifle
and a revolver and started out of town on
a gallop. Just as Madlgan and Chadburn
were leaving the main streets the posse
opened fire from the protection of a store.
The robbers teturned the Are and a lively
fusllade ensued. Finally Madlgan fell from
his horse, dying almost Instantly. Another
bullet soon brought Chadburn to tho
ground, shot through the bowels. During
the exchange of shots J. M. Pope, a mem
ber of the posse, received a slight wound In
the foot, and a Mrs. Malone, who had been
attracted to the scene by the firing, was
shot In the leg. Her wound Is not serious.
Madlgan's body was taken to Cedarvale
and Chadburn wns placed In the hospital,
where, It Is said, he cannot live. Madlgan
and Chadburn were each under 30 years
of age. Chadburn has served time In the
Kansas penitentiary for robbery. Nothing
