Illinois Cattle Begins When Strike
Leaders Order Engineers and
Pumpmen to Quit.
OPERATORS ARE STANDING FIRM
Stopping of Pumps and Shutting Ofl
of Fresh Air May Damage
War which threatens the life of the
coal industry in Illinois has been de-
clared between the operators and min-
ers. Refusing the terms accepted by
the miners in other States, leaders of
the Illinois strike ordered out engi-
neers and pumpmen who had been left
to guard against destruction of prop-
erty during the suspension.
Millions of dollars are involved in
the latest strike order, as many of the
properties are known as “wet” mines,
and the.v will be irretrievably damaged
unless the pumps are kept running.
The “dry" mines also will be greatly
•damaged when the supply of fresh air
is shut off by closing down the fans.
Tn face of the warlike move of the
miners the operators decided to stand
firm, and their position was indorsed
at a special meeting of the Illinois
Manufacturers’ Association, held at the
Hotel La Salle in Chicago. Though
the suspension is costing the manufac-
» turers in Illinois at the rate of $20,-
000,000 a year extra for fuel, they de-
cided unanimously to stand by the op-
erators to the last ditch in the strug-
Resolutions pledging the operators
the full support of the Illinois Manu-
facturer-;' Association were introduced
by Norman W. Fraser, president of
the Chicago Portland Cement Com-
pany, who said that the suspension
had cost his company $13,000 for the
month of April and $25,000 for the
month of May more for fuel than
would have been the case under nor-
Federal intervention may be asked
by the manufacturers, and it was inti-
mated that President Taft may lie
urged to do as President Roosevelt
did in the anthracite coal strike 1n
1902, when he forced the operators and
miners to submit to arbitration.
BIG FIRE IN MINNEAPOLIS
Implement Warehouses Destroyed
as Blaze Rages for Hours.
Fire, which started at 1 o'clock on
a recent morning and burned fiercely,
was not got under control until 3
a. m., after burning down four large
Implement warehouses and other
pieces of property in Minneapolis, en-
tailing a loss of over $75,000, accord-
ing to last estimates. But one man,
Christ Madison, was burned. His con-
dition is serious. The fire started
from an unknown cause in the ware-
house of the Great Northern Imple-
ment Company. The burned district
is bounded by Washington avenue and
3d street and 6th and 7th avenues,
The implement warehouses burned
were: The Rock Island, the Great
Northern, the Waterbury and the
Northwestern. The Sixth Avenue Ho-
tel was practically destroyed. Three
engines were detailed from St. Paul
to help tight the flames. The princi-
pal losses are: Northern Rock Isl-
and Plow Company, $200,000; Great
Northern Implement Company. $250,-
000; the loss on the building owned
by C. W. Wright, Saginaw, Mich.,
$200,000; Waterbury Implement Com-
pany, stock and building. SIOO,OOO.

BANISHMENT FOR HEBREWS.
Russia Ousts Jews by the Thousands
from City of Kiev.
One thousand and two Jewish fami-
nes have now received official notifi-
ation that they must leave Kiev, Rus-
sia, in accordance with the determi-
nation of the Russian government to
drive back into the pale all Jews who
are unable to establish their legal
right to remain outside Its confines.
An additional 193 families living in
the suburbs outside the city proper
ire subject to deportation before June
14 unless in the meantime they pro-
duce proofs of their right of residence
In their present homes.
It is quite impossible to secure sta-
tistics showing the number of those
already expelled. Even the Jewish re-
lief committee is unable t« state the
sxact figure, but the committee esti
mates that between 200 and 300 Jew
Ish families have quitted the city.
in addition to the deportation order-
ed, the Jews of Kiev have been sub-
jected to minor annoyances, such as
the refusal of passports, good over
the year, and interference with their
residence at the summer resorts out-
side of Kiev, where all those who are
prosperous enough go during the heat-
ed term, the law forbidding Jews to
settle in the villages or on farms, "in
order to prevent the exploiting of
The real hardships for the Jews are
expected to come on June 14, when
the time limit for their departure ex-
pires. All who still remain in Kiev
on various pretexts will be expelled on
that date. Although th,' Jewish relief
committee is collecting funds for this
contingency, it is feared that many
will face deportation by force rather
than leave the city voluntarily. The
committee has collected several thou-
sand dollars, and hopes are entertain-
ed that adequate funds may be secured
from the considerable colony of Jew-
ish millionaires in Kiev.
KELLNER GIRLS BODY FOUND
Prisoner’s Husband Is Missing Jani-
tor of Church—Grave in Cellar.
The body of Alma Kellner, who dis-
apepared Dec. 8, was found the other
day in the cellar of St. John's Paro-
chial School, five blocks from the
home of her parents. Mr. and Mrs.
Fred F. Kellner, in Louisville, Ky.
Mrs. Lena Wendling, wife of Jo-
seph Wendling, who was janitor of
St. John's Roman Catholic Church,
and who disappeared Jan. 14. has been
arrested, charged with being an ac-
cessory to the murder. Mrs. Wend-
berg was housemaid for Father George
Schuhmann, the pastor. Wendling,
who is 24 years old, left no word as
to his destination, his wife asserted.
The child’s body when found was
incased in carpet, sewed together
lengthwise, and the child had evident-
ly been slain and then thrown through
a trapdoor. Almost every bone was
broken and the skull was fractured.
It was evident that quicklime had
been used and that attempts had been
made to burn the body. Alma Kell-
ner was 8 years old, and left her home
to attend mass Wednesday morning.
Dec. 8. It was thought she had been
kidnaped, and rumors of demands for
money had been frequent. The car-
pet wrapped around the body, it is al-
leged, belonged to Wendling, and the
police have found some of his cloth-
The identification Is thought to be
complete. The body was found by
Richard B. Sweet, a plumber, who
was pumping water from the cellar.
The ground had been scooped out to
a depth of six inches, making a shal-

PLEA CITES UNLAWFUL COMBINE
Action Is Begun by Attorney Gen-
eral Wickersham on Behalf of
Twenty-five Western railroads were
temporarily restrained by United
States District Judge David P. Dyer
in Hannibal, Mo., from enforcing or
making a general advance in inter-
state freight rates. The injunction
was granted on a petition filed by the
United States government on the alle-
gations that the advance in rates were
fixed by the defendants by agreement,
without competition and in violation
of the Sherman anti-trust act.
The petition was filed in the United
States Circuit Court at St. Louis and
was brought to Hannibal to present to
Judge Dyer. It states that unless such
a restraining order be issued the ad-
vances will become effective at once,
to the grave harm and injury of the
people of the United States.
The petition was presented by Ed-
win P. Grosvenor of Washington, spe-
cial assistant to the Attorney General,
and Frederick N. Judson of St. Louis,
acting as special counsel. It was sign-
ed by George W. Wlckersbam, Attor-

Brought to a sudden climax in the
West by the successful invocation of
the Sherman anti-trust law to enjoin
the lines west of Chicago from putting
their proposed rate increases in effect,
the freight rate controversy was given
an unexpected turn later. While the
Western roads, thrown into consterna-
tion by the application of a law from
which they had considered themselves
Immune, were preparing to restore
their old rates and to defend them-
selves against charges of illegal com-
bination. the Eastern roads were filing
tariffs at Washington with the Inter-
state Commerce Commission. These
tariffs advanced commodity rates
throughout the territory north of the
Ohio River and east of the Mississippi.
This move will actively extend the
fight at once to every section between
the Missouri River and the Atlantic
seaboard and is expected to make the
