STOCKHOLM, Sweden. May 27. What
is believed to be the temalnn of the bal
loon In which Prof. Salamon A. Andree
ascended from Dane's Inland, near Spltz
bergen, July 11. 1837, In an attempt to
'reach the north pole, have been found In
a forest In eastern Siberia, according to
a telegram received at the Swedish For
eign, office today trom Yakutz. Investi
gation of the reported discovery has been
ordered by the government.
The Arctic explorer was accompanied
by two scientists and after leaving
Dane's island no report was received
fiom the party.
XothliiK Definitely HNtalillitucil.
Although traces of Andrce'B balloon
Slave frequently been reported at various
places and while een the body of the
famous Swedish Arci explorer was said
to have been discovered on the coast of
Labrador, nothing ever has been defi
nitely established as to what actually
happened to the expedition or what be
came of the balloon.
Andree and two companions, Messrs.
Strlndberg and Frackcl, started from
Dane's Island In the hope of being car
ried by trade winds to the North Fole.
The explorer believed the steady current
of al would take him Into the polar
regions In a week, cary htm over the-
pole and land him safely In North
Klve Iluoya PIckeil Up.
Five buoys from the balloon have been
picked up. The first, found in Norway
In June, 1899, contained a note from
Andree and was thrown out eight hours
after his departure. The "North Pole
buoy," to be dlopped when the pole was
passed, was found -off King Charles
Island In September, 1699. A third buoy,
also .empty, was found on the west
.ujoaat of Iceland In July, WOO, and another
was reported from Norway, 'a montn
later. In September. 1913, a buoy marked
"Andree's North Pole Kxpedltlon, 1S95;
No. ,10 buoy," was picked up by, the
Norwegian steamer Beta, which arrived
at Tromsoe fom Spitsbergen.
Many searching expeditions have re
turned unsuccessful. In January, 1910,
dispatches from Prince Albert, Saak ,
aid that Blhop Pascal announced that
he had locclved letters from a mlssii
ary telling of the supposed finding of
Andree's balloon by Eskimos near Rein
deer lake. In the Arctic circle, 900 miles
north of Prince Albert
It has thrice been reported that An
dree's body had been found, but none
of these statements was substantiated.
QUIET IN IRELAND DESPITE
PASSING OF HOME RULE BILL
LONDON, May 26.-The passing of the
home rule bill has not led to the break
ing of a. single head in Ireland. The
predictions made by certain unionists
thnt Its final adoption by the House of
Commons would be followed by fierce
outbursts In Ulster and sanguinary con
flicts between the Orangemen and the
nationalists have proved to be untrue
"Belfast Is ae quiet and orderely as a
Bewlng meeting." Is the admission of one
of the unionist newspapers.
The authorities, civil and mllltla are
keeping watch and trams are held at

ARMY TO BACK ROOSEYELT
Colonel Planned to Send Troops Into
Coal Strike Region in 1002.
BUT THE BARONS CAME ACROSS
Colonel, In Clrlnn; Tollmonr, Sari
He Was Prepared in Tnkf Meas
npf "Kqnlrnlent to Action
In Time of Wnr."
NEW TOItK, May 17. -Theodore Roose
velt, as president, was to take measures
"equivalent to action In time of war,"
to end the great strike In the anthracite
mines In 1952. He was determined to
take action even though nn effort should
be inade later to Impeach htm for It.
.Mr. Roosevelt so testified In giving tes
timony here toda before a referee In
the suit of Alexander T. V ales, a law- i
yer or ninghamton, N. v., against John i
P. White, president of the t'nlted Mine
Workers of America, for fees he alleges '
are due him for the part lie took In set- .
tllng the Mrlke. i
'In September.' said Mr. Roosevelt,
"the situation began to grow acute. It
was a situation full of menace to the
country. I asked to appear before me i
representatives of the operators and of I
tho miners. I regarded the attitude of '
John Mitchell, then head of the miners, j
as reasonable and the attitude of the J
operators as unreasonable and offensive."
Army Wn Uenilj.
After lehing of his efforts to settle the
strike through a commission of arbi
tration, which Orover Cleveland con
sented to head, he continued:
"I made up my mind I would have to
take drastic action unless the operators
and miners got together. I Intended to
send in the United States army I only
wanted to get It In there, and I'd take
caro of the situation. I told Senator
Quay of Pennsylvania I'd act, and I'd
guarantee that the people of the eastern
fceaboard would have coal and have It
right away. I told him If he wcld help
me, he could vote to Impeach me later
If he wished. I asked Quay to arrange
to, have Governor Stone of Pennsylvania
when I notified the governor, send word
to me he was unable to control the situa
tion Ttnd then I would send In the army.
"I planned to have General Schoflcld
to go In and take charge with the troops,
and act practically as a receiver for the
mines. I told the general It would bo
equivalent to action taken In time of war
and that he must pay no heed to any
other authority no heed to a writ from
a judge or anything else except my com
mands, tie said he would do so." .
Colonel Roosevelt said he kept his plan
secret, even from the members of his
cabinet. Th operators, he said, per
sisted In their uncompromising plan, un
til finally a change came and after many
disputes about the membership of the
commission one was appointed and the
Spam Tvlth Lawyer.
Colonel Roosevelt wan constantly spar
ring With Mr. Wales, who conducted his
own case, when under cross-examination.
Mr. Wales frequently.- angered him and
he, bent forward, shakjng his -finger. ut
the lawyer and scowling at him. He
said he had never seen Mr. Wales before,
and knew nothing of any part which the
plaintiff took In settling tho strike.
Mr.--Wales tried to make Colonel Roose
velt admit he was willing to violate
the laws, defy the courts and disregard
the constitution to settle the strike.
"I wouldn't accept your interpretation
of the constitution," Colonel Roosevelt re
torted. "I proposer iliav every action I
took should be In accordance with the
constitution as Abraham Lincoln con
"Would you have settled the strike,
law or no law?" persisted the plalntlrf.
"I'd have settled it," Colonel Roosevelt
said. "I'd have found a law."

Delegation of Omaha Bankers and

MJUST WAIT ON ORGANIZATION
Tito Vacancies on (he. Ilonril Canscd

Ilefore Any HenrlnRH
A delegation of bankers and business
men of Omaha are to go to Washington
to present their protest against being
included In the Tenth regional bank
district, whenever the dato for the hear
ing of the protest shall be set. As yet
nothing has been done, as the federal
board Is not organized. Although the
nre.ldent has made tho annolntments. he
has not yet filled the vacancies occasioned I
by the resignation of two of those ap
pointed on the federal reserve board.
Until these are filled and the board get
together and organizes, nothing can he
done In regard to hearing tho Nebraska
and Wyoming protest.
The law says this board shall have
power tb hear protests. It does not say
that they must hear protests.
. Mnat Give n Hearing.
"They've got to give us a hearing."
sajs Henry Wv Yates,' president of' tho
Nebraska National bank. "I can't see
how they could'get out of It. It would be
like a court refusing to hear a case If
they refused to hear our protest."
The Omaha bankers hae sent circular
letters to all tho national banks In Ne
braska And Wyoming asking their stand
on the protest. This was dono since tho
formal notice of protest has gone in to
Washington. The banks of Wyoming and
Nebraska are practically unanimously
with the Omaha men In asking for a
change from -the Kansas City district
and asking that Omaha be given a bank
or that Nebraska nnd Wyoming be placed
In the Chicago district. Only a few of
the banks In the republlcun valley and at
Lincoln refused to favor the protest.
"These number less than fifty banks of
the state," said Mr. Yates, "that are
holding out and are not with us In asking
for a change."

DOYLE PREDICTS LYNCHING
OF MILITANT SUFFRAGISTS
NEW YORK, May 27.-Slr Conan Doyle,
the British novelist, accompanied by Lady
Doyle, arrived at New York today on the
White Star liner Olympic.
Mr. Doyle said England had stood all
It could from the militant suffragettes,
and he anticipated "a wholesale lynching
"The English," he said, "follow public
opinion, and thus far public opinion has
not demanded the entire suppression of
the suffragette. But it Is on the point
of doing so, and when the English mob Is
thoroughly aroused, It Is not a respecter
of sex." !
This Is his first visit to this country for

no general uprising had followed the re

uprisings, or smsll outbreaks, but If any
thing further does happen It will he
