HUGE STRIKE BEGINS.
Men of Many Trades Quit In Philadel-
Between 50,000 and 75,000 union
workers on strike, 100 different
branches of industry affected and a
renewal of rioting in which two men
were shot la the situation which
fronted Philadelphians early Saturday.
The police are apprehensive as to
the outcome. With thousands of men
idle, forced to quit their usual voca-
tions as their leaders allege because
of the obstinacy of the officials of the
Rapid Transit company, it will be an
easy matter to fan the spark of dis-
content Into a flame of lawlessness.
Director Clay, however, has no hes-
itancy in declaring that he has enough

SHOT DOWN IN THE STREET.
Three Southerners Fired on Without
State Senator E. L. Travis and Rep-
resentative A. P. Kitchen, a brother
of Gov. W. W. Kitchin and of Con-
gressman Claude Kitchin, of the Sec-
ond North Carolina district, and Dep-
uty Sheriff e W. bunn, all of Halifax
county, N. C., were shot down on the
main street of the town of Scotland
Neck, N. C., Friday by E. E. Powell.
Travis and Kitchen are seriously and
Dunn fatally wounded.
According to the best Information
obtainable, Powell met the three vic-
tims walking along the street together.
He approached Senator Travis and
asked him his reason for not replying
to a letter he had written to him. Rep-
resentative Kitchin, thinking that
Powell was out of humor, placed his
hand gently on his shoulder and utter-
ed words intended to placate him. Pow-
ell drew a pistol, shot Kitchin, and in
quick succession fired on Travis and
Dunn, both falling to the ground.
Powell then walked to his store, se-
cured a shotgun and barricaded him-
self in the place. No effort was made
to storm the place, but Friday night
he surrendered and was taken to jail
The bullet, which struck Kitchin at
close range, entered the face below
the eye, and was later taken out be-
low the ear by surgeons. The ball
which laid Travis low knocked out
several teeth and spilt his tongue.
Dunn was hit below the left shoulder
blade, the bullet ranging upwards.

STATE LAND SALES.
Tracts In Missouri Slojtc Country to
Be Disposed Of.
For the first time the state lands
board will offer lands for sale in the
Missouri slope country. For years
these lands would not bring the mini-
mum price fixed by the constitution
for the state school lands, and no ef-
fort was made to dispose of them.
But now that the demand has brought
them up to a price where they will
bring not only the minimum, but
more than twice that, offerings will be
made in Sully and Potter counties.
The list of counties selected in which
to make offerings and the dates of
such offerings which have been decid-
ed upon are: Beadle, April 25; Kings-
bury, April 26; Miner, April 27; Me.
Cook, April 28; Sanborn. April 29;
Jerauld, April 30; Douglas and Sully,
May 2; Charles Mix and Potter. May
3; Gregory and Faulk. May 4; Spink,
May 5; Clark, May 6; Hand and Mar-
shall, May 7. The lease dates in all
counties where lands will be offered
for sale will be on the days following
the sales, except when such day is
Sunday, when they will be on the
Monday following. Leases on lands in
all other counties of the state will be
made on March 17.
PLAN A BIG CONVENTION.
Sunday School Workers to Meet at
It is expected that Rev. F. P. Leach
of Sioux Falls, general secretary of
the state Sunday School association,
will be one of the principal speakers
at the annual convention of the state
association, which will be held at Red-
field on April 5. 6 and 7. A number of
other prominent Sunday school work-
ers from various parts of the state
and from other states will be secured
to make addresses dur'ng the conven-
tion. The people of Rodfield are mak-
ing elaborate preparations for the en-
tertainment of the visitors during the
time they are guests of the city. The
convention was held at Parker last
year and there were upwards of 200
delegates present. This year those In
close touch with the situation declare
there is a larger interest In the work
of Sunday school organization over
the state, and for this reason it is ex-
pected the attendance at the coming
convention will be much larger than
last year. Three sessions will be held
on each of the three days that the
convention will last—forenoon, after-
noon and evening.

Government Pays Over Interest Mon-
ey to Sisseton Sioux.
Representatives of the federal gov-

the work of distributing among the
members of the Sisseton tribe of In-
dians an aggregate of more than $30,-
000. which was due them as interest
money by the United States govern-
ment. The Sisseton Indians are com-
paratively few in number, and because
of this some of the individual mem-
bers of the tribe received considerable
sums as their proportion of the pay-
ment. As a result the merchants in
the town adjacent to where the In-
dians liveware now enjoying a fine bus-
iness supplying the wants of the war-
riors and their women and children.
These Indians, like others of their
brethren, are I’beral spenders, and
not many of them attempt to save for
a rainy day.

RATE RULING HANDED DOWN.
Express Companies Victorious in Fed-
Judge Carland, of the federal court.
Wednesday afternoon rendered g de-
cision which is a complete victory for
the express companies doing business
in South Dakota. He holds in sub-
stance that the act of the legislature
did not give the board of railroad
commissioners authority to make the
schedule of rates complained of by
the express companies, which was a
general reduction of 20 per cent from
the rates in effect January 1, 1909.
Judge Carland’s decision fully re-
views the act of the last legislature
providing for the reduction of express
rates and concludes as follows:
“The words 'such schedule’ refer tc
the rates established by the action,
and the power given is only to change,
modify and establish a rate in such
eschedule that has been found to be
unjust or too high or discriminatory.
It seems clear that the legislature for
fear it might in some cases do an
injustice by making a horizontal re-
duction in rates by sections 5 and 6 of
chapter 159 intended to provide a
remedy to the express company or any
person Interested to complain in par-
ticular instances of the injustice of a
rate which would be created by the
provisions of section 4. As the court
is of the opinion for the reasons here-
in stated that the board of railroad
commissioners had no authority to
make a schedule of rates complained
of, it is not necessary to determine
whether chapter 159 is valid legisla-
tion or not."
Chapter 159 is the act of the legis-
lature regarding the reduction of ex-
press rates. Judge Carland's decision,
which was rendered on demurrers
filed by the railroad commission, vir-
tually throws the case out of court, as
there is nothing further to fight about.
Milwaukee May Buy the Rapid City
The fact that two surveyors, said
to have been in the employ of the Chi-
cago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railway
company, recently made a trip over
the Rapid City, Black Hills and West-
tern railway, which extends from
Rapid City to Mystic, the latter town
being situated in the heart of the
Black Hills directly west of Rapid
City, has again given rise to the re-
port that the Milwaukee company is
about to purchase the Rapid City-
The two surveyors made copious
notes regarding the condition of the
roadbed and the possibility of
straightening out the track in some
places. It has been known for some
time that the Milwaukee company
was desirous of having a line to the
Wyoming coal fields, which would
greatly Increase the importance of its
line from the Missouri river to the
Black Hills, the terminus of this line
at present being at Rapid City.

manner these Indians secured liquor,
and returning to the reservation,
promptly began to hunt trouble. They
found it ot the Douglas ranch, near

sued they used an ax too freely, with
the result that they will have to an-

HUNDREDS LOSE LIVES
IN IDAHO AVALANCHE
Burke and Mace Are Overwhelmed
by Huge Masses That Slide
FAMILIES TRAPPED IN SLEEP
Snowslides That Destroy Property
and People Started by Chinook
Winds and Warm Rains.
Sixty lives have been lost, it is fear-
ed, in two great snowslides which
brought dismay to the mining towns of
the rich Coeur d’Alene district ,n
Northern Idaho. At 10:35 o’clock the
other night a snowslide swept down
the mountain, striking the little town
of Mace and burying twenty-five bouses
and their sleeping occupants in a mass
of snow and ice at the bottom of the
canyon. At 5:30 a. m. the next day,
another slide rushed down ca the town
of Burke, crushing a score of houses
under thousands of tons of earth ana
snow. There is fear that the number
of dead at Burke may be even lar -er
than that at Mace. Because of the
larger population of Burke, about 900,
the houses were closer together.
Mothers hauled their children to the
side hills; brothers dragged little sis-
ters to places of safety, and when the
slide struck many of the homes were
deserted by fear-stricken women and
children, while the bread providers
were rescuing injured at the stricken
Old-timers in the Coeur d'Alene dis-

straggling line of cottages in the creek
bottoms, bisected by the lines of ‘he
Northern Pacific and Oregon Railroad
and Navigation Company. Its one >
dustry is mining and its big mine is
the Standard. With scarce a dividing
line perceptible the towns of Black
Bear, Gem, Mace and Burke form a
long string of houses for six miles.
Mace is divided into two parts,
known as Upper and Lower Mace, re-
spectively. The catastrophe occurred
In Lower Mace, where dwelt about 300
miners employed in the Standard
mines. Most of these men were unmar-
ried and lived in the Hotel Standard.
Reports are that this hotel was in the
path of the avalanche.
Though first reports of the disaster
were that the town of Gem, Idaho, a
mile above Mace on the same side ot
the canyon, had been overwhelmed,
later news indicates that the town es-
caped. The slide was half a mile long
and thirty feet deep.

ed the Burke snowslide, which increas-
ed in velocity with every foot down

headway and force that only blinding

Surface trams were crushed and twist-
ed and cabins were ground to atoms.
