THE MOBNINQ OREGONIAN, PBIDAY, MAY 16,-190:5.
STRIKE WILL LAST
Mine Workers Vote to Con
tinue the Struggle.
FIGHT TO THE BITTER END
Bituminous Coal Miners May Be
Drawn Into the Struggle Operat
ors Determined to Breolc
HAZDETON, Pa., May 16. The anthra
cite mlneworkers, In convention here this
afternoon, directed to continue the strike
of the 145,000 men against the mlneowners
and to fight It out to the bitter end. The
matter of calling out the engineers, fire
men and pump-runners will be directed by
the delegates tomorrow.
"While the leadens are cautious and will
not forecast their actions. It Is not un
likely that the miners' fight will be car
ried Into the bituminous coal regions and
Into' other fields of Industry. Mlnework
ers for eight months have been looking
forward to the strike that Is now upon
them. For the strike they have saved
their money, and are considered to be In
hetter shape today for a fight than they
were In the great strike of 1900. That
strike ended In the mlneowners giving the
men a 10 per cent advance after a six
weeks suspension. The operators are on
Tecord as being unalterably opposed to
granting the men any concessions, and
they have personally informed the mine
workers' leaders of that fact. The work
men fear that the present fight may mean
the destruction of their organization, be
cause they believe that the mlneowners
are bent more on wrecking their union
than they are in opposing the demands for
higher wages and shorter work days.
President Mitchell's advice to the miners
was for peace, and he gave it to them In
the "plainest and most forceful of lan
guage. He was ably assisted by President
Fahey and Secretary Hartley, of the lower
district, and Secretary Dempsey, of the
upper territory- President Nicolls, of the
first district, was the first great cham
pion of the strike advocates. Mr. Mitch
ell, who was the last to speak, was list
ened to with the greatest attentidn. It 1
also said that a telegram was received
from the American Federation of Labor
against a permanent suspension. But the
delegates would not listen, and amidst
suppressed excitement the vote was taken.
For a time it looked as if the peace ad
vocates would win, but when delegation
after delegation from the lower district,
the last to be called, answered "yes," It
was seen that the men who favored a
fight had won. The result was received
by the convention with applause, which,
however, was not very enthusiastic or
prolonged. The men appreciated the seri
ousness pf their decision, which no doubt
dampened their ardor.
The .miners Insist that nearly all the
engineers, firemen and pump-runners be
long to their organization, and say that
they can get them all to quit If they want
to. In the event this is brought about, it
would do Incalculable damage to the
mines through flooding, unless the com
panies can fill the men's places.
President- Mitchell was apparently In
good humor tonight. He was pressed for
a statement on the situation, but he po
litely refused. Wilkesbarre will probably
be the strike headquarters.
Interfered With Lumber Delivery.
HELENA, Mont., May 15. Jesse B.
Roote, as attorney for the "Western Lum
ber Company, of Spokane, today applied
to the "United States Court for an injunc
tion to restrain the Teamsters' Union, of
Butte, .from interfering with the delivery
of lumber by the company to Senator AV.
A. Clark for a block he Is constructing.
The Butte teamsters are on a strike, and
when the transfer company attempted to
haul the lumber from a depot, the drivers,
who were threatened with a boycott, quit
work. A temporary restraining order was
WIGGINS FERRY STOCK.
Attempt to Dispone of Shares Leads
to an Injunction.
.ST. LOUIS, May 15. One hundred and
thirty-two shares of Wiggins Ferry stock,
belonging to Mrs. Mary Bowen, who is
now' in Paris, are tied up here In the office
of the United States Express Company
by an Injunction granted on behalf of the
Mississippi Valley Trust Company, which
claims ownership. The stock had been
sent here from Cincinnati to be turned
over to the Mercantile Trust Company,
which Is trying to secure control of the
ferry company for the Chicago, Rock
Island & Pacific Railway. Because of the
contest between the Mercantile and Mis
sissippi Valley Trust Companies for 'the
control of the Wiggins Ferry Company,
the price of the stock has risen until it Is
valued at anywhere from $500 to $2000 a
The Sheriff is looking for Mrs. Eleanor
Clubb to serve a writ of injunction re
straining her from disposing of the stock
belonging to her sister-in-law, Mrs. Bow
en. Mrs. Clubb has been in Cincinnati,
the Mississippi Valley officials say, at
tending to the Interests of her slster-ln-law.
The Sheriff cannot find her. Mrs
Bowen accepted an offer of $600 a share
from the Mississippi Valley Company for
her 132 shares, which were in the care of
a Cincinnati trust company. When she
received an offer of $1000 a share from
the Mercantile Trust Company, she ca
bled to the Mississippi Valley Trust Com
pany an offer of $10,000 for release from
her' contract. This w,is refused and the
officers of the company later learned of
the preparations for the sale to the Mer
cantile Company through the Common
wealth Trust Company. Under the In
junction served upon the express company
officials, the stock cannot now be taken
from the express office.

Confirm Report of Monon Sale.
NEW YORK, -May 15. Confirmation or
the Report that the joint control of the
Chicago, Indianapolis & Louisville sys
tcmhas been acquired by the Louisville &
Nashville and Southern Railroads comes
from several authoritative- sources. The

for thexommon and $S5 for the preferred.
Tho total capital stock of the railroad is
$15,500,000. of which $5,000,000 is 4 per- cent
noncumul&tlve preferred stock, the bal

E. T. Johnson, chief engineer of the
Oregon & Southeastern Railroad, being
built from, Cottage Grove. Lane County,
to the; Bohemia mining district, has been
in the city a few -days, and left for Cot
tage Grove last night. He says that two j
miles of the road are graded, and that
camps are strung along the line for eight
miles and that the first 10 miles of the
road from Cottage Grove to a point on
Row River will be completed and trains
running over It by July 3L The road runs
up the valley of the Row River, an old
settled and fine agricultural country, -with
a delightful climate, and as the grade
runs through a level country of fields,
pastures and meadow lawn, with very
little woodland, the work is light and pro
ceeds rapidly. There are some 40 teams
and 50 men at present employed In grad
ing. Cottage Grove Is situated on the
Coast fork of the Willamette, and the
Row River, which enters the Coast fork
a little below the town, is the larger of
the two rivers.

NAT GOODWIN TONIGHT.
Famous Comedian in "When We
Tonight Mr. N. C. Goodwin and Miss
Maxlne Elliott will open an engagement
of two nights, with a soeclal mntfniA Sat
urday. The play this evening and at the
matinee tomorrow will be Henry V. Es
mond's beautiful Idyll, "When "We Were
Twenty-One." which these artists pre
sented on their former visit to Portland,
and made such a decided hit Saturday
night one of the greatest successes they
have ever had. "An American Citizen,"
written by Madelane Lucette Ryley, will
be presented. At no time In his long and
remarkable career has M.r. Goodwin been
offered greater opportunity for the dis
play of his wonderful versatility than In
these charming comedies. The characters
heportrays in them appeal earnestly to
the" immediate sympathies of all of his
auditors. Miss Elliott, who is recognized
as the most gifted of the ladies on the
stage, in each play presents a creation of
much lovableness. In both plays she has
an opportunity for the display of beauti
ful gowns, five of them being magnifi
cent creations of-Parisian dressmakers,
but those most favored by Miss Elliott
being built for her In this country. Mr.
Goodwin and Miss-Elliott bring with them
a cast of superior excellence and tho
scenic environments will portray the lo
cale of each story most delightfully. The
curtain will rise promptly at 8:15, and
those not seated will have to remain
standing until the fall of the curtain on
the first act.
Crowds at "In aiixzonra."
For the sixth time this week the Baker
Theater was crowded from top to bottom
last night with people who came to en
joy "In MIzzoura," as played by the
Stuart Company, and remained to enjoy
it. There is something about the play
which seems to ba IrreeUUbl. Papl
go to see It over and over again, and f
there has not been a performance which
has not been received with the greatest
enthusiasm. There is no doubt that of
all the popular plays that have been
put on by the Stuart Company, this Is
the. most popular, and there ,1s little doubt
that the capacity of the house wllUbe
tested the rest of the week. "In Miz
zoura" will be the bill at the Saturday
afternoon matinee, and the performance
promises to be unusually attractive. The
play Is one that "will especially please
audiences of women and children that
are accustomed to form the greater and
most enthusiastic part of matinee crowds.
The Lamb Children Coming;.
"Two Little "Waifs." from the pen of
Lincoln J. Carter, will be seen for the
first time at Cordray's Theater Sunday
and all next week. It is said to be one
of the most pretentious of Mr." Carter's
many plays. The story of this . play
hinges upon the striking ljkeness of two
women In love with the some man, who,
unknown to each other, are twin sisters.
The dual role is taken by Helen Carrall,
at one moment depicting motherly love,
the faithfulness of a deserted wife, and
the self-sacrificing principle of a woman
who believes her husband to be true, and
In the next she portrays a character as
villainous and deceptive as the other Is
pure and beautiful.
Stanley and Lollta Lamb essay the parts
of the waifs. These clever tots were
born here, and In their new parts
this season are said to have made a pro.
The scenic effects. It Is asserted, are
above the Lincoln Carter standard.
"The Banker's Daughter.'
It takes a long time to prepare a cos
tume play, but the play Is usually worth
the time. This will without doubt Ije true
of "The Banker's Daughter," which will
be played. by the Stuart Company at the
Baker Theater after "The Count of Monte
Cristo." The play will be well staged,
as well as well costumed, and the repu
tation of the company is a guarantee that
It will be well played.
The Fravrley Repertoire.
The plays that the Fra,wley Company
have chosen for their repertoire during
their week's stay at the Marquam Gand,
which commences next Monday night, are
ones In which they have scored their
greatest triumphs everywhere. The play
for the opening night will be "Alabama,"
and this will be repeated Tuesday. It Is
the most successful of Mr. Thomas'
great "state" dramas, and Is in fact the
one that made him famous.
Wednesday and Thursday nights will
come Plnero's "Sweet Lavender," declared
by many to be the prettiest play ever
Friday night and at the Saturday mat
inee the Frawley Company will put on
an elaborate revival of "The Charity
Ball," and for the last performance Sat
urday night, the celebrated "buzzsaw"
drama, "Blue Jeans," will be given. The
entire Frawley Company will appear In
all of the productions.
"Monte Cristo" Next Week.
"The 'Count of Monte Cristo' has not
been played for, so long In Portland that
many people will have the opportunity of
making its acquaintance anew Tvben It Is
presented by the Stuart Company at the
Baker Theater next week. The play will
be elaborately mounted, and Mr. Stuart
says thnt he has given more care to Its
preparation than to anything he has yet
put on. The advance sale is already very
heavy, and is rapidly growing.

prietor of "ZIon," died last night of burns,
having suffered for hours, while "Elijah
II" prayed over her.
Miss Dowle was 23 years old and a stu
dent at the University of Chicago. Yes
terday morning her hair caught fire from
a gas Jet and her face was horribly
burned. Nurses placed salve on the pa
tient's wounds, as the Dowle doctrine al
lows for the use of medicine externally.
Meanwhile the "Divine Healer" was hur
rying to the bedside from his new City of
ZIon at Waukegan. Upon his arrival the
attendants were excluded from the room,
and Dowle Rink to his knees In prayer.
His supplications lasted all day. He re
fused to cease even to take the nourish
ment which his followers pressed upon
him. The patient was unconscious much
of the time.
The patient dlfcd at 9 o'clock In great
agony, having returned to consciousness
a short time before. News of the death
did not come out until today, when the
Coroner was notified.
At the Inquest Dr. Dowle frequently
broke down under his grief. He declared
that his daughter's night robe had been
burned from her body and that vaseline
had been rubbed on her by Deacon
Spelcher's orders. Spelcher has a license
to practice medicine. He declared that
during the afternoon the patient's- condi
tion had "become very serious, and that
Dr. Campbell, a medical man, had been
sent for to consult with Dr. Spelcher.
Campbell, the witness said, had ald
there was little hope. Dowle declared
that when Esther regained consciousness
she asked him to pray for her. At no
time, he said, had she asked for medical
attendance. The Jury then returned a
verdict that death was due to burns ac
.Insurance Company Loses.
ST. LOUIS. May 15. In the United
States District Court today. Judge Adams
rendered a verdict In favor of Mrs. Mar
garet Roth, who sued for the payment of
a $10,000 life Insurance policy held by her
husbandi Adam Roth, a wholesale grocer,
In the Mutual Reserve Life Association of
New York. The verdict included costs. A
short time prior to his death Mr. Roth
refused to pay an assessment on the pol
icy, and this act, the company claimed,
made the policy Invalid. Judge Adams
"Mr. Roth had paid many assessments
on his policy, and the net value paid was
sufficient to carry, after this lapse, for a
period extending to the time of hls death.
Therefore, the fact that he failed to pay
one assessment constituted no defense."

CHICAGO. May 15. An elaborately
ecalpped private car Is to carry two
evangelists through the Western states
this Summer. The car will be built by a
Chicago company at a cost of $7000, and

the car will contain bed
rooms, bathrdoms and a.4e!tchen. Each of

auspices of the National Evangelical So
ciety. The car will be paid for by Mrs.
Mary S. Gelger, of Philadelphia, mother
of Evangelist Gelger.
Hat less Women in Church.
NEW YORK, May 15. In an address be
fore the diocesan convention of the New
Jersey Eplscopil Church, Bishop Scarbor
ough called attention to the growing prac
tice of women appearing hatless in pub
lic places. It had been extended to at
tendances at divine worship, which, he
thought, waB not a consistent practice,
and he hoped it would be discontinued.
A Farmer Straightened Out.
"A man living on a farm near here came
In a short time ago completely doubled up

MAY 17 THEIR BIG 'DAY
NORWEGIANS WILL HOLD A CELE
BRATION. Eighty-Eighth Anniversary of Their
Independence "Why They Ob
As the Norwegians of Portland, pn Sat
urday, May 17, under the auspices of the
Norwegian Double- Quartette, will com
memorate the SSth anniversary, of the in
dependence .pf Norway, it will probably
be of Interest to know why they celebrate
this memorable day. First, a word to
those who may say, of what Importance
Is this day to us In this country? I may
ask of what importance are days of other
nations? Germans hav0 their day; the
French theirs, and we have been so used
to It, that we would think something was
wrong If we did not. on the 17th of March,
see people wearing the green. I wish to
be able to show that the Norwegians have
a day of historic Importance a day of
which they can be justly proud.
As an American, wherever he may go,
never can forget the 4th of July, so is the
17th of May always dear to a Norwegian1.
Only those whose history is full of
glorious victories for freedom can fully
appreciate the liberty that they enjoy
In this country.
Norway and 3weden were united for t,he
first time under Magnus Erickson, in
1340.. The union came about in this way:
Magnus' grandfather was Haakon Mag
nuson. King of Norway. His mother was
Haakon's raughter, Ingeborg, who was
married to the Swedish hertug, Erik. At
the death of his grandfather he was
heir to the throne of Norway, and was
also by the Swedes chosen as their ruler.
Magnus had two sons, Erik ahd Haakon.
He appointed his son Erik as chief of
state, or as a kind of vice-King In
Sweden, and his other son, Haakon, to a
similar position in Norway. 'Erik died In
1359. The Swedes soon after chose
Albrekt. of Meklenburg, as their King.
Thus ended the union between Norway
and Sweden, and for many years war
was the result. During one engagement
the Swedes captured Magnus, and he had
to give up all claim to the throne of
Sweden. Magnus was drowned In 13S4.
King Haakon, Magnus' second son, died
in 13S0, and his son, Olov Haakonson, was
then to succeed him to the throne. His
mother was the daughter of the Danish
King, Valdemar Otterdag, and when he
died, in 1375. the Danes had already chosen
him (Haakonson) as King. Norway and
Denmark became thus united Under Olav,
and this union lasted until 1814. Olav's
reign was short. He died in 1387 IT years
old. His mother, Margreta, ruled Norway
and Denmark after his death. In the war
between Norway and Denmark on one
side, under Margreta, against Sweden,
under Albrekt. of Meklenburg. on the
other, Margreta came out the winner,
and became thus the Queen of Sweden
also. The Norwegians, who were used to
having a man as their ruler, did not like
her, and Margreta had to agree that her
sister's daughter's son, Erik, of Pomern,
be crowned as the King of Norway In
Trondhjem. 13S9. A few years later he
was elected King by the Swedes, .and was
crowned at Kalmar, 1397. It was then
agreed between representatives from the
three kingdoms that they in the future
should have one king In common; but
that each country should be governed by
Its own laws. Contrary to agreement;
however, Denmark became the leading
country, ipffices.of all kinds In Sweden
and Norway were given to Danes, and
they were a burden to the people. Tax
ation was enormous, and especially
heavy were taxes to pay for the war
which Depmark had begun with Holsten
about Slesvlg. and as this war only con
cerned Denmark, It was enough to make
tho people dissatisfied with their ruler.
He finally had to leave hla kingdoms, and
his nephew. Krlstoffer, of Bayern, was
chosen King of the three countries. The
people rebelled during the reign of his
successor, Krlstlern L, King Hans and
Krlstlern II., and when this last King,
in the year 1320, in Stokholm. beheaded
some of the most prominent Swcdest this
government decided to withdraw from the
union, and chose Gustav Erlkson "Vasa
After the great Northern war, as It is
called 0709-1720). ended, Norway and Den
mark had peace for SO years, when this
happy time ended.
England got news that Napoleon and
the Czar of Russia at the conference at
Tilsit, had agreed that the Norwegian
Danish navy was to be given to France,
who again would use It against England.
The English sent ships to Denmark and
demanded that the Norweglan-Dnnteh
navy proceed to England. This was re
fused, and the English bombarded Copen
hagen, and took the Norwegian-Danish
navy with them to England.
Norway had about this time also a war
with Sweden. Commerce in Norway was
at a standstill. Money was worth noth
ing. Nothing could be imported from any
where, as the English cruisers blockaded
every river of importance, and In 1812
times were so hard that bread was made
of bark, front the trees.
Denmark still took side with Napole
on, and when the latter, in 1812. had made
his unsuccessful march against Russia,
demanded of the Russian Czar and the
Swedish crown prince. Karl Jbhan, who
now took part with England, that Fred
rick "VI., King of Denmark, should cede
Norway to Sweden. This he would not
do. and Karl Johan then entered Holsten
with his army and compelled Fredrlk to
acknowledge the treaty of Kiel, which
stated that Denmark was to cede Norway
to Sweden, and Denmark was for this
to have $1,500,000. The treaty ot Kiel was
signed January 14. 1814.
Fredrlk VI. then released me Nor
wegians from their allegiance to him.
and requested them to acknowledge the
King of Sweden as their ruler. As we
will see. they did riot choose to follow
Who was this Karl Johan? A common
soldier In the French army under Napo
leon, who advanced him for bravery, so
that he finally became field marshal of a
division of Napoleon's Northesn army.
He then turned a traitor to hlfl own
country, France, and took part with
Russia and England agalnrt Napol6on.
The great powers of Europe chose him to
be King of Sweden.
As the people in Norway understooa
that a separation from Denmark was Im
minent, they chose as their King Chris
tian August, of Augustenborg. He was
Fredrlk VL's representative, or chief of
state in Norway. When Carl XtlX, of
Sweden, died without an heir, he was also
by them chosen as their King. H lived
only a few months afterward.
I will quote a few lines from the
Scandinavian, a Norwegian newspaper:
"As we have seen, the Norwegians
would not accept Karl Johan as their
King, On the contrary, a constituent
assembly was convoked, consisting of men
cast in the same mould as the American
patriots In 1776. They declared the country
soerelgn and Independent, adopted a
constitution and organized a government.
That constitution has remained in force
until this day. It was and still is the old
est written constitution In the world, ex
cept the organic laws adopted in this coun
try previous to 1S14. They dared, though
poverty stricken and forsaken, to defy
the will of the great powers of Europe,
leagued together in a: Infamous alliance
for the suppression of freedom among
men. They succeeded, despite overwhelm
ing odds, in lighting and guarding the
only torch of liberty in the old world,
which for decades kept alive the hope
of freedom's triumph in Europe daring a
period of crushing oppression. The con
stitution of Norway has outlived ail of its
models except the American. It has never
found favor with tyrants or their tools,
but. like the structure of America, it has
stood the test of time, and it is charac
terized by publicists of the rank of Blunt
schll as one of the most remarkable con
stitutions ever framed by men."
As King of Denmark, Fredrlk YI had
to give up 11 claim to Norway. Karl
Johan thought that he had a right to it,
but the Norwegians would not submit
tamely to be bought and sold like cattle.
"They would not recognize the treaty of
Kiel. As King Fredrlk had released them
from the allegiance to him without any
right, they would now govern themselves.
The Swedish crown prince, Bernadotte.
tried then, by force of arms, to enter
Norway. Norway's best part of the army
was at that time In Denmark, but they
met him with what they had. Only two
serious engagements took place, but ln
both Instances the advantages were with
The crown prince Informed the govern
ment at Stokholm that he could not
conquer Norway with the troops at his
disposal, and as Sweden was unable, on
account of the great war on the Conti
nent, to furnish the large reinforcements
and many supplies demanded by Barna
dotte. he was anxious for peace. He
proposed an armistice, which was accept
ed, and before It terminated an agreement
for a union between Norway and Sweden
xWhen Bernadotte saw that he could do
nothing by force of arms, he readily and
voluntarily accepted the Eldsvold consti
tution at the convention at Moos, although
It was repugnant to his political views,
and radically different from the laws of
Sweden then In force.
This union between Norway and Sweden
was accomplished, not by force of arms,
but by the free will of the contracting
parties. Article 1 of the Constitution of
Norway reads: "Norway Is a free, inde
pendent. Indivisible and Inalienable sov
ereignty united with (not under) Sweden
under a common King." The united
kingdoms have nothing In common except
the King and war and peace, nor do they
form one kingdom in respect to their for
eign relations, though they are repre
sented by a common diplomacy. In re
cent years they have pursued different
tariff policies and have concluded sepa
rate commercial treaties with foreign
These men who made the constitution
of Norway assembled at Eidvbld (about
33 miles north of Christiana April 10, 1814,
and their great work was finished May
17, the same year. One incident to show
the kind of patriotism of the people at
that time: Prof. Georg "Sverdrap. one
of those great men who framed the con
stitution, on his way up to Eldsvold, was
asked by the man who drove his buggy:
"Are you one of those who are going up
to Eldsvold?" Sverdrup answered "yes."
Then the driver said: "Whatever you do,
do not give your vote in favor of being
sold. Before It comes to that we will
all leave our wives and children at home
and go to the front and figKt, but what
ever you do, remember that God Is with
you." King Fredrlk VI.'s cousin. Prince
Christian Fredrlk, during the assembly
at. Eldsvold. wanted them to elect him
king, and this same Sverdrup remembered
the driver's words to him. and he, full of
patriotism, answered the prince that to
the throne of Norway has your majesty
no more right than I.
The spirit of independence is as strong
today as It was then. It is a country as
democratic as that of America, and among
all progressive nations. Norway has now
taken the lead in recognizing the rights
Among the rocks of Northland, in the
wonderful light of those northern skies,
stands the cradle of Norse and Anglo
Saxon liberty and law. F. A. TOMTE.
