Mr. Graham, at the opening of the Inquiry this morning, asked thac a portion of Overman Cunliffe's evi- dence given in reply to questions by him, he deleted from the record, as he had found the evidence given by some ot the miners showed that tiie portion of the mine referred to-by.him in ask- ing his questions-of Cunliffe, had been worked the afternoon of the Sth, so that his .quest jciiis_; nn.; that _snoint and the under a misapprehensionpf the conditions pre- vailing "at the time feferred to. This was done andi Mr.-Cunliffe again ex- plained to the jury, the working of :he Bell, or Armstrong system and the location and working of the electric signal system. The seven lamps of the seven dead men whose uodies had been iclinci were then put in evidence and Cunliffe explained where each one had been found and the condition they were in. David Davie's lamp was found at a place where' he had been working hanging on a nail, as he had evidently left it when he ran out in the mam slope where his body .was found .over a hundred feet from the lamp. None of the lamps showed evidence of sufficient blazing to justify the conclusion that the explosion' could have been caused ,by them. i 'The lamps of the two timber mei whose liodies were found in the main slope, could have been 'open lamps as there was no. evidence of any gas having been in thai part of the mine.

Gavros, Who Draws Fine of When the police sleuths, who were following Dioune's trail the other light while he was peddling whiskey, noticed that he went Into Hie White Lunch, they followed shortly aftcr- ,rds and asked George Gavros if any "hard stuff" had been left there for him. He said "no." The officers did not make a search then, but they came back later, the chief and Const. Wallis coming in by the rear and Sergt. Bowker by the door. As they were coming in they noticed the Chink flunkey emptying broken hot ties into the garbage can at the. rear. Investigation proved that the bottles had recently been broken and the smell of "good whiskey was wafted to the olfactory nerves of the sleuths. This evidence resulted in Gavros be- ing convicted and fined 575 arid costs yesterday afternoon in police court. On Dionne's confession of guilt at the trial in the forenoon, the case against Gavrcs v.'as .proceeded with in-the afternoon. Chief Hardy and Const. Wallis gave evidence and the chief called Dionne who gave corrob- orative evidence to the effect that he had left booze with Gavros in bot- tles similar to those of which the broken remains were produced in court. One damaging piece of evi- dence was shown when the bottles were examined and it waa found that they had been broken without the corks having been pulled, as though Gavros had been in a hurry to des- patch them before the police became Officials Prepare Plans To Break" The Strike-1000 Men Apply For For Men Who Stay At Work. Washington, Aug. eight-hour day bill on which most congression- al leaders agree. If enacted by Saturday night, will be sufficient justification in the opinion of the Brotherhood for calling off the for Labor Day. This today was the main source of optimism that the great industrial tie-up would not occur. "Enactment into law of the president's eight-hour day bill ps now drawn guaranteeing the present 10 hour day said W. G. Les, head of the trainmen's brotherhood, "will bo regarded as a satisfactory set- tlement of our differences with the railroads and there will uo no strike. In order to prevent a strike, however, this hill must become a law before next Saturday night." The Senate Interstate Commerce Commission arranged its first public hearings on the measure today, and allowed three hours each for argument by' brotherhoods and railways. Us leaders set Friday afternoon as the time when they would take the initiative if the senate had not acted, and gave assurance that the house would pass the measure then under special rule, making it effective November 1st, The attitude of congress today, that of determination to prevent the strike, was exemplified by the resolution, pending in the senate, calling on1 tha Brotherhood officials to suspend the strike order for one week. RAILWAY OFFICIALS PESSIMISTIC Chicago, Aug. and operating officials of the railroads of the1 country are in conference today, for the purpose of formulating plans to operate trains in the event the strike set for next Monday morning takes ace. Practically none of the railroad heads shared in the optimism expressed. in some quarters at Washington that the passage of the S-hour bill by congress would avert a strike.

It is only fair to mention that the proprietors of the White Lunch cafe knew nothing whatever about the transactions in which Gavros was up. In fact they state that thev have given positive instructions that all liquor must be kept away from the. premises.
