Mrs. Patterson, who alleges that she was sold into white slavery by the man whom she killed, heard the story Wed- nesday afternoon from the man who was the one witness to the shooting.

CONSUL AT CLEVELAND, HOME FROM ITALY, DENIES REPORT OF ATROCITIES IN TRIPOLI Investigation to Be Taken Up In Are Granted Another Delay, WASHINGTON, Nov. Justice Wright today refused to dismiss the contempt charges against President Gompers, Secretary Morrison and John Mitchell of the American Feder- ation of Labor in the Bucks stove ant range case. Wright issued a scath- ing decision. This means he will again attempt to force the labor lead- ers to trial. The court held that the statute of limitations tor orosecution of crime haft no application to prosecutions for contempt of court, and that the contention of the labor leaders that the alleged contempt was committed more than three years ago is merit- less. Three days were given the counsel for the defendants to reach an agreement as to the appointment of a commissioner of special examin- er to take testimony in the case. If an agreement cannot reacoed with- in that time the court will appoint one. The opinion covers more than 30 typewritten pages. Roast Justice Wright. ATLANTA, Ga., Nov. of Justice Wright's decision adverse to Gompers, Mitchell and Morrison was received with anger by the Ameri can Federation of Labor convention here today. A resolution was adopt- ed condemning Wright saying the proceedings "has more of the char- nf than a and expressing regret that a man "so lacking in judicial tempera- ment should be elevated to the bench.' Stanley Will Fight To House Floor WASHINGTON, Nov tativ'e Stanley 'Mil carry nis figh' against efforts of the steel trust in terests to muzzle his investigation to the floor of the house when congress convenes. He declares the investiga- tion is not only necessary from a le- gal point but a great work for hu- manity." On a technical point the steel trast attorneys assert the com mittee can not continue its mvestiga tion now as the suit has been filed, against the trust Stanley assert- the probe has just begun. Stanley also believes that Rev. F Because, there are unexpended balances available to continue the work, no harbor appropriations for the coming year arc recom- mended for Sandusky, Lorain, Huron or Vermillion in the report of Gen. William H. Bixby, chief of the army engineers, in his an- nual report made public Wednes- day night in Washington. Likewise, because there is no existing demand for the opening up of new docks or water front, no further improvement of San- dusky harbor beyoond the present project, is recommended. These statements came to the Star- Journal Thursday, from its si.iff "t- respondent in Washington. At first it appeared that Sandusky wai being treated shabbily, but investigation showed that there was no occasion a recommendation of additional harbor improvement projects since none had been asked for and there was no apparent demand. The pres- ent project, now about 72 per cent complete, calls for a full depth of 21 feet of from the lake to the Pennsylvania docks. The only addi- tional improvement that could be ask- ed would be a further deepening of the channel, or the building of a new channel to the East End. In his re- port, Gen. Bixby says of Sandusky har- bor: "This harbor is not considered wor- thy of improvement further than that contemplated by the existing pro- ject." This means if Sandusky wishes further harbor development, a showing of the necessity for the work, and probably co-operation on the part of the city, will be necessary. Congress- man Anderson stands ready to assist in anything which is desired but there is now no definite project in view. The report shows that the total amount expended on Sandusky haihor to June 30, 1911, was Of this, was used for mainte- nance in the last eight years. In the past year, the dredges Burton and Maumee have done much work in the harbor, the former removing cubic yards of material from the chan- nels, and the latter cubic yards.

The mayor contends the law specifies that the service director shall appoint all wa- ter works department employes. The democratic members of the council are opposed to a change from pres- ent arrangements. The republican. majority will wait until it gets a le- gal opinion. Henry Graefe, a repub- lican member, declared Thursday that he would "be in favor of aa expert holding both jobs at a good salary, if tbe law allowed it. Democratic members were good listeners when the matter was discussed. All seven council members, Coun- cil President-elect MJschler, Direc- tors Bing and Hauser and the mayor were at the conference.

It is reported upon good authority that the republican major- ity had desired a party caucus with. the mayor's cabinet but Member-elect Graefe kicked over the traces and In- sisted upon a meeting at which tha three democratic -membrs were also in attendance. Members present at the meeting say no attention was given to organ- ization, so the matter of committee memberships and the selection for council clerk will have to oe worked out at a later meeting or a caucus of the republican members. It is al- ready assured, however, that Member- elect Graefe will be the republican floor leader and the chairman of the finance committee. As to the demand for the little navigation, the report says.

It was Member-elect Graefe, who, as a member of the council pre- ceding the present one. suggested the plan of centralizing the city's clerical work by placing all clerks, except the board of health clerk, under the su- pervision of the city auditor. By this plan the number of clerks was re- duced. Member-elect Graefe declares that if the mayor's proposed change Claus in caring for unfortunate means any increase in clerical help, boys and girls of the city migfct otherwise be overlooked. The subscription list will be start- ed in a few days so that the fund can be ready several days before Christmas, and attention is called to it now. The Star-Journal also welcomes Santa Claus letters from the chil- dren but again would emphasize that those letters are preferred which make an appeal in behalf of others, rather than a mere self- isto request. The best letters will be published.
