Washington, the negro educator, will not be allowed to speak in the hall of representatives at the state capitol at Austin, Texas, when he visits that city next month. A resolution seeking to accord Washing- ton that privilege was introduced in the house of representatives but was voted down. Two Amherst Boys, Returning From Fishing Trip, Hurled to Death. WASHINGTON, Aug. P. Morgan is to be a witness before the Stanley steel trust probe com- mittee. This has been definitely decided and a subpoena has been issued for the man whose name has figured so much in the testi- mony of others. He is expected to arrive from Europe next Wednesday but may not be called until October or November as the committee is likely to adjourn to- day. The workings of the pools and "gen- tlemen's agreements" that were pre- valent in the steel trade up to 1905 were explained to the committee to- day by W. C. Temple, of Pittsburgh, who was commissioner of several pools. Temple declared that all pools and agreements ended in 1904 and Judge Gary broke up the practice. He also told how J. P. Morgan had turn- ed down an opportunity to buy the Carnegie steel plant for and six months later paid for it: Oaldeigh Thome, president of the New. York Trust Company of America, which became involved in the finan- cial panic of affairs of which have been linked with the taking over of the Tennessee Coal and Iron Com- pany by the United States Steel Cor- poration at that crisis, followed George W. Perkins as a witness be- fore the committee. Mr. Thome flatly charged George W. Perkin with responsibility for the rim on his concern during the panic of 1907. It was in consequence of the fun. on the Trust Company of America that the steel trust absorbed the Ten- nessee Coal Iron Co. The allegation is that the latter move was necessary to save the trust company from going to the wall. According to Mr. Thome, it, was through Mr. Perkins that a statement was given to a newspaper, that the Trust Company of America was a "sore spot" in the panic situa- tio.n but that aid would be given it Martin W.

A turtle, the reward of the youngsters' after- noon fishing, together with half the skull of Stephen and the brains of Frank were on the pilot of the engine as it pulled into the local station. The bodies were hurled thirty yards. The spot that put a sad end to the happy fishing excursion has been the scene of half a dozen deaths the past year.

Ben Tillett, leader of the federation, summed up the strike and its outcome for the United Press as follows: BY BEN TILLETT. "This is labor's greatest tri- umph in the country. The 100.- 000 families of the strikers are not only benefited by the increase in wages but by the shorter hours and better conditions whereby they will have an opoprtunity for the first time in their lives for recre- ation. The forces of capital are at last compelled to recognize the absolute power of the wage earn- er. This is by far the most im- portant point gained by the un- ion."
