Coal Miner Will Alii Copper Men.
HOUGHTON, Mich., Jan. 21,-The strik
ing copper miners In tho Calumet district
probably will have (ho financial suppprt
ot tho United Mine "Workers during the
rem'r .nf"daytf of their fight for recognl
tloa of.ojganlzed. labor,, according, to .H,
G. Street, who was sent here by tho Mine
Workers to Investigate tha situation.
"Labor needs to win this strlko," said
Mr. Street today, "and I bellovo It will
win. i have nover seen men more de
termined than the strikers. Their faml
lis are being wall eared for by their
unions and they don't appear to have the
slightest thought of giving In."
Mr. Street declared that It was appar
ent that tho ltizons wero not In sym
pathy with tho strlko because most of
them wore In a measure dependent on
the mining companies. Tho fact that the
strikers have held out so long In the face
of this hostility, he said. Indicates that
they will remain steadfast.
As soon as he has visited all the locals
In tho copper district Mr. Street will pro
ceed to Indianapolis to make tho report
on i which ho expects the United Mine
Workers will decide to cxtsnd financial
help to tho Michigan strikers.
The United Mine Workers' organization
has none but coal miners In Its member
ship. Metal miners mako up the mem
bership of the Western Federation of
Miners,, with which tho copper country
locals are affiliated. The former body
already Is supporting five strikes of Its
own, It Is said.

HITCHCOCK SEES PRESIDENT
Nebraska Senator Called to White
House by Mr. Wilson.
WILL NOT TALK 1 ABOUT IT
Jfo Word Given Out of Mcnnlnir f
Speculation n to Its
the Visit, nn.l Nothing nut
ItenI Import.
From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, D. C, Jan. 2t.-(Spc-
clal Telegram.) Senator Hitchcock upon
Invitation of President Wilson paid a
visit to the White House today, tho first
In many Vnoons. It was tho real news
of tho day and tho correspondents saw
visions of a truce being declared between
Hitchcock and Bryan overthe question
of Nebraska patronago though tho per
sonal Influence of tho president and a
general getting together of tho two "old
cronies" of former days, for the greater
.glory of tho party and tho return ot
Hitchcock to tho senate.
Tho senior senator from Nebraska
would not talk of his visit to the presi
dent. Ho refused to give even tho sllgh
est suggpstlon of Its Import except to say
that tho visit was at tho president's In
vitation.
An Viewed In Cnpltal.
The Evening Star has this to say of
the Hltchlek visit:
'-'Sonatw-Hlteheoek of- Nebraska made
his frst call on President1 Wilson today.
The visit was upon the Invitation of tho
president, who probably wished tho Ne
braska, senator to feel that the latch
string ot tho White House wob out to
him the same as to any other democrat.
The conference was a pleasant one, ap
parently. Secretary Bryan's entrance into
the cabinet and tho turning over of Ne
braska patronago to him by tho adminis
tration brought a reluctance on the part
of Senator Hitchcock to bother the Whlto
House, and he has never shown any ac
tivity in that section of the district. Ills
attitude on trust legislation, would It was
supposed, still further alienate him from
the Whlto House, but the presldelnt has
taken care that this should not be so."
Ncbrimkn Visitors.
Bat Koehler ot Geneva, who has been
on a visit to his brother, Major Koehler,
at Fort Teney, Staten Island, was In

HASTINGS, Neb., Jan. 2L (Special.)
Hastings jobbing Interests havo been. In
formed that there Is now In preparation
a now freight rate schidulo for Nebraska
which will offset the discrimination of
the Prouty rates against the shippers
ot Interior Nebraska towns. If this
schedule does as it la calculated to do
and Is accepted by the railroads, the
local shippers will still be on a com
petitive basis with eastern points, but
if not they will appeal to the Interstate
Commerce, commission for a readjust
ment of rates which will remove the ad
vantage Iowa and Missouri river points
have over Nebraska towns.

CHIHUAHUA, Jlox., Jan. 21,-Ordors
were Issued by General Francisco Villa
today for a concentration of rebel forces
along tho railroad north 'of Torroon. Tho
rebels scattered In the state of Durango
and Coahuila and the garrison In Juarcr.
were ordered to join thoso at Chihuahua,
with a view of preparing a formidable
front In tho projected robel advanco
southward.
Evidences have mult Inlle.l thnt thn fori.
orals at Torrcon aro determined if possi
ble to check the rebellion at that point.
Torreon Is now tho northernmost federal
stronghold. In tho heart of thn renublln
Tho federals hold that If tho revolutionary
movement from the north Is to bo halted
at all It must bo halted there, and that
tho loss of Torreon to the rebels would
leave the way open for Villa's advance
to Saltlllo, Monterey, and cities near
Mexico City. Consequently, according to
reports received hero, tho federals are
drawing all their avallablo soldiers to
ward Torroon In the hopo of dealing a
decisive blow to tho rebels.
General Villa said ho was r.ot Inclined
to believe tho federals would evacuate
Torren. Ho therefore ordered to con
centrate all rebels who might bo spared
from the surrounding .country. Within
ten days ho said, his avallablo army for
tho campaign would number 15,000 well
equipped soldiers. General Villa him
self expects to lead the campaign, but
not until ho first has visited Juarez, for
which place ho planned to leave today.
The rebels ares already within striking
distance of Torreon. They occupy
Laredo and Gomez Palaclo, Important
suburbs.
Tho overthrow of Torreon by tho rebels
would lcavo two routes open to Mexico
City. One would bo directly southward
through Zacatecas and Aguas Callonto".
The other would be eastward through
Baltlllo and Monterey and then south
ward throughJan.Iul..rjatosL.. .
As an Indication of - his , Intention to
head his troops and also as an Instance
of the summary manner In vulilch he
appoints important officials. General
Villa while preparing to take tho train
for Juarez, turned to General Manuel
Chao In tho state palace today and said:
"General Chao, you are now governor
of the stato of Chihuahua, and I leave
everything in your hands while I go it
the head of my troops to dethrono the
usurper of our liberties."

"TItectlon ot a supervisor of -social cen
ters and' recreations Id being considered
by the fncmbers ot this reorganized Board
of Education, the duty of such official
to be tho superintendence of meetings
which may under tho law be held In
school buildings.
During tho last two years tho Board
of Education has thrown open schools of
the city to community meetings of non
sectarian, non-polltlcal nature, and tha
sentiment of the School board Is to per
mit these meetings to continue on a
more cxtenslvo scale.
President C. T. Walker says the board
will exercise a rigid censorship of all
meetings In school houses, and he has
already notified several organisations
that they will not be permitted to use tho
schools, because their discussions In
variably run into political talks.
All new school buildings havo audi
toriums, which aro used as often by tho
pcoplo In that school district as by tho
members of tho school. The mothers. and
fathers ot tho city aro deeply Interested
in tho social center schemo and believe
tho continuance ot meetings In school
houses will be of Interest to tho com
munity and especially to pupllB, who will
be able to socuro tho advise ot tho school
officials and their parents In a co-operative
work.
School board members say It Is not
probable that tho supervisor of social
centers will be elected ' this year, but
with the beginning of tho first semester
of the schools next year tho matter will
be given careful consideration and If
funds permit tho Innovation may be given
a trial.
Supervisor R. L. Carns of athletics has
charge ot school activities outside tho
buildings, and tho new supervisor would
In no way Interfere with his work.

Steamship company In the last six years
by tho Western Fuel company, according
to the testimony given todayby Davlq 0.

ernment of duties on Importod coal, said
the gifts to Schwerln were qharged to

When Schmcrln would place an order
for coal, said Norcross, the order would
bo given to James H. Smith, western
fuel manager, a defendant In tho pres

made out for tho Schwerln order, after
tho coal had been delivered to his San

A. E. Do Rlcques of Denver today In an
address before the seventeenth annual
convention of the American National
Live Stock association.

I believe, aro' not more than half tho
damage sustained by the shippers."
