men were asking If he thought the strike
would be settled soon.
"I told them," he wrote, "that I heard
nothing of a settlement or anything that
would Indicate a settlement; that the strike
would last a long time yet and also that I
believed the union would have to give up
by next fall If we did not win by that

Work and will carry out the instructions I
received from Mr. Carey (Plnkerton man
ager) about a week ago In regard to cut

so as to cause dissatisfaction and get the
men against the union. I will put the
blame for not giving the men more relief

saying that I carried out bis Instructions."

' Report from Victor.
Mr. Darrow next read reports from
t'htlader H. Bailey, known as "Operative
No. ." They were dkted from Victor,
Colo., during the Cripple Creek strike.
One of these letters was purely formal,
detailing the proceeding of a union meet
ing. . The letters developed nothing against
the law and order as had been mentioned
by the speakers or Ir.tervlfws with mem
ber of the union. Following Bailey's re
port came . the report of an operative
named Rainier in Cripple Creek. Ralmer
declared, under date of September 19. 1903,

The operative added that at the tinio of
his writing there was strong talk of taking
the leaders of the union from the bull p.-n
and banging them. The citizens demanded
the resignation of Sheriff Robertson. He
declined. They got a rope and put a noose

reported from Victor that In a search of
the union hall he had found the photo
graphs of two nonunion men. Upon the
back of each picture was a cross.
"This," said Londoner, "I am told la tha
plan of marking men for death."
Just before the luncheon recess was taken
Mr. Darrow began to read from the re
ports of Operator A. H. Crane, who was
secretary of the Smelter Men's union at
Colorado City, and who Is charged by the
defense with having done much toward
starting the strike which led to all the
Cripple Creek disturbances. Crane's re
ports were simply detailed statements of his
daily movements and his advice to tho min
ers to hold out and win the strike. Recess
was ordered until 1:30 p. m.
Portland Was Union Mine.
After the recess Mr. Darrow continued
to read from the reports of the Plnkerton
operatives sent from the mining districts.
In regard to the report of J. N. Londoner
it was shown that this operative was not
employed by the Mine Owners' associa
tion, but was supposedly working against
military and with the proprietors 'of the
Portland mine, which was continuing to
employ union men and was not disturbed
during the strike. After the Independence
depot affair, Londoner was afraid the
Portland mine might be attacked as a re
sult of the high feeling against the tinlon.
"1 was satisfied serious trouble would de
velop In a few hours," writes Londoner,
"and, too, I believed the Portland mine
would be attacked and the property de
stroyed.' I therefore boarded the 7:60 a. m.
Short Line for Colorado Springs to ac
quaint the client of the condition of af
fair!? ' , 1 '- ' .: . '" ''
The defense claims the railroad officials
knew that the Independence depot was to
be blown up just prior to the arrival of
the 2:0 train, the Idea being not to kill
any one but to carry oul the affair as n
attempted outrage on the part' of the West
ern Federation of Miners. In this connec
tion Mr. Darrow laid especial emphasis on
that part of Operative Londoner's report
which rend: .' '
"The killed miners were blown Into un
recognizable masses of flesh ' and bone
and when the crowd beheld thU eight It
moved them to tears and then drove them
Into a frenzy of Indignation. I talked with
a young miner named Miller, employed at
tho Shuthoff mine. He said lie was within
a short distance of the depot when the
explosion occurred. He claims the Colo
rado & Florence train was running slower
than usual and that the train actually
stopped before the explosion and within
a few yards of the depot. . . ,
Mr. Darrow concluded his reading by the
Introduction of two letters written by Mc
Purtlaml and one .. written to him. The
first McPartland letter was addressed to
George O. Pangs, general superintendent of
the agency at New'Tfork. and had to do
with Operative Crane. Friedman was then
cross-examined by Benator Rorah.

The season for the small boy's sacrifice is

day. Nevertheless It Is a day which the

Now is tho time for careful fathers and
mothers to prepare for the carnage. In
times of peace prepare for war. Proclama
tions and decrees and ultimatums and
ukases have been Issued as they have been
Issued every year. But little Johnny cares
not for anything of this kind and he will
be there with the fireworks all through
the Fourth. There will be burns and ac
cidents and then the counting of fatalities
will come as In former years.
Now, If Johnny will be careful there need
be no accidents. But If, by chance, he
should burn himself or shoot his hand full
of powder, let blm make haste to the House
and have It attended to. If he does so, he
may live In the land many years. If he
does not he may be numbered with the

added In the proportion of one teaspoon

A soon as the physician arrives he will
attend to the wound If It needs further
attention, though often the application of
the carron oil Is sufficient to effect the cure.

San Francisco Officials Say Licenses
Are Hot Granted to Any
Bat Citizens.
BAN FRANCISCO, July 1. In response to
on Inquiry the Japanese consul today In
formed the Associated Press that no de
cision has yet been reached aa to whether
suit shall be brought In the court to re
cover In behalf of the Japanese resident
of Ban Francisco who suffered loss In
wrecking on May 23 of a Japanese res
taurant and bath house In Folsom street
by a mob. The matter was described a
being at the present time In statu qub.
It was said by a representative of the
consul general that the consulate Is not now
awaiting Instructions from Toklo. but la
simply delaying action for further con
sideration of the incidents of the attack.
It was further Id that the consulate
was Investigating the complaint of local
Japanese that their race Is being discrim
inated against by the Board of Police
Commissioners In' refusing to grant them
liquor licenses, Junk licenses, Intelligence
office licenses and licenses for similar mu
nicipal privileges. Tlie reply of the board
is that it Is acting under an ordinance
which forbids the Issuance of llq'lor licenses
to any save citizens of this country and
persons who have declared thefr Intention
of becoming citizens and In accordance
with the rule for the board , that other
licenses named shall not be granted to for
eigners until American residents haVe more
fully recovered . from the business shock
of last year's earthquake arid Are. The
consulate looks with sueplcloa on this de
fense, hut wishes to be undrstood as de
sirous of Investigating furthif before mak
ing any definite recommendation to the
Toklo government. - j
WASHINGTON, -July l.-The fact that
there Is no apparent discrimination as a

The Nebraska Telephone Company now
operates 47,000 telephones of which num
ber 15,l!00 are located in Omaha, showing
a growth during the last year of 30 per
cent. It has also made traffic arrangements
with so-called independent companies
which give it connections with 40,000 addi
tional telephone stations. The company has
earned and paid in dividends at the rate of
6 per cent per annum without a break for
the past ten years, and by careful manage
ment has accumulated a surplus of $500,
000 to provide for storm damages and other
For every dollar of capital the company
can show actual plant value, which makes
the stock a most conservative investment.
Although the equipment is modern in every
respect, the capitalization per telephone is
extremely low, being less than $100 per
station (that is per telephone) including
real estate, toll lines and property of all
kinds. This means that the fixed charges
to be earned by each telephone are so low
that ample provisions can be made or
maintainance and reconstruction, this keep
ing the underlying property value at par.
Tlie exact figures at the beginning of the
year show that the total capital and debt
was $4,324,289.69, the total number of tele
phones was 44,517, so that by dividing the
total capital and debt by the total number
of telephone stations, the result showed a
capitalization per telephone of $97.14.
This figure in itself is proof positive to
any telephone man that there is not a dol
lar of water in the Nebraska Telephone
Company. Because it has no watered stock
nor inflatation of its capital, the Nebraska
Telephone Company can give its subscrib
ers the greatest possible value for their
money in the way of service. It is in a posi
tion to be a good public servant. The stock
of the Nebraska Telephone Company is pot
speculative, but an investment; the busi
ness of the Nebraska Telephone Company
is not a guess, but a science.

Bonds on a projected telephone plant have
been offered at par and sweetened with
from 50 to 100 per cent of common stock aa
a bonus. On its face this proposition seems
to admit that every dollar's worth of plant
at least a dollar and a half in securities will
be issued.
But this is not all, for, in addition to the
6tock issued as water to stimulate the sale
of bonds, a greater amount of stock must
be issued to carry the control of the com
pany. This means that more than two dol
lars' worth of securities must be issued
upon each dollar's worth of plant. Having
gone so far it is easy to go farther and cre
ate securities up to three or our times thf
cost of the plant. .
The recent disasters which have come to
Bo-called independent telephone companies,
and notably the downfall of the United
States Independent. Telephone Company
which was capitalized for $50,000,000 and
and agreed to sell out the control for $5,
000,000, or ten cents on the dollar, have
been caused by the inflation of the capi
talization in order to offer large bonuses
of watered stock to prospective, investors.
In the case of the United States Telephone
Company, the end was hastened by unfavor
able money market and by 26 cent copper
and a corresponding advance in the costs
of construction.
The underwriting rights for several new
independent companies whjch are beipg(
hawked about the country, cannot prove
anything but disastrous in the end if a plant
built at the present high prices "of material
is loaded with a capitalization of two or
three times its cost. It is annuonced that
the proposed new telephone plant in Omaha,
will be bonded for $1,500,000 and will issue
$1,500,000 of preferred stock", and it is fur
ther announced that 6,000 telephones in
Omaha will pay interest on this $3,000,000
of capitalization, provide a sinking fund
, and carry a net profit to surplus.' This
means that each telephone will pay 4he
fixed charges on $500 of capitalization, and
that an investor who puts $100 into ilie
scheme will have a fifth interest in the
earnings of one telephone. , ' . !
