half weeks and was one entirely free from disorder whatever There were numerous conferences of the strikers and at three of them letters setting forth the position of the com pany were read The railroad officials adopted a kindly tone fn this final tet ter stating that tbey were willing to treat their men individually or by committee on an open shop basis and the men realizing evidently that

interference they are instructed to demand of the sheriff and the gov ernor the protection the law guaran tees Sheriff Bates will be on the range In person to watch developments and It is said that if there is interference with which he cannotcope he will call on the governor for troops While the steel officials believe the situation on the range is still critical more optimis tic persons in Duluth believe the men not prove unruly to a degree that will require military interference Petriella the strike leader sent a telegram to the governor stating that strikers willing to leave the country had been refused payment of their June wages that armed deputies pre vent the men from meeting in their own halls and that unless immediate measures are taken by the governor the men will be compelled to go info a bodily conflict to safeguard v their rights The governor replied to Petriel la that the steel officials deny charges and that any resistance of thft kindthreatened would call for armed Interference by the state After the vote had been taken by the dock men to return to work they sent a letter to MayorCullum which for a moment sent a shiver of appre hension through the officials They

had presided personally at the trial announced in a voice choked with emotion that the charge against the unfortunate man had been proven Ordered Stripped of Official Insignia Then thecommissioiierr turned Inspector in whose districtStephen Walsh was a patrol man but who is no relative of the dismissed and in spector fo strip Walsh of his shieM and uniform buttons so that he mighl not even leave the trial room with the emblems of his former position as a policeman in good standing on his pei son The crowd looked on in wonder and excitement as the inspector ad vanced to perform his unpleasant

with a wave of his hand indicated that he desired the other men in uniform to remain Come up close in front all you men in uni said the commissioner in a voice choked with emotion while his eyes brimmed with tears Ihave a word to say to you all but I can scarcely say it My cheeks have burned with shame here even to think of a charge of cowardice being preferred against a man in this department It has been our pride to say that what ever other faults there may have been there was no cowardice in this depart ment I the accused in this case ev ery chance to defend himself but it has been clearly proven that he failed the moment when he should not have This thing must nev er happen again while you and I are together You must forget this but you must remember the proud record of thirty years before when not one man in the many thousands failed to do his duty in the face of any dan Stephen Walsh was one of the two men against whom charge of cow ardice was made last week when
