Demand for Arrest of
Santa Fe Men.
MOODY DRAWS BACK
Government Attorneys Present
Ultimatum to Him.
DRASTIC ACTIO.N PROPOSED
Judson and Harmon Refuse to Con
duct Rebate Case Unless Heads
of -Company Are Arrested
WASHINGTON, April 11. (Special.)
It 'develops that tho recent visit of
ex-Judges Harmon and Judson, special
attorneys for the Government in the
Santa Fe case, resulted in a stormy ses
sion with Attorney-General Moody and
only the latter'a plea of the absence of
the President prevented the abrupt re
tirement of the two counsel from the
case. Tho public announcement when
ine two attorneys wore appointed that
the Government Intended to go to the
bottom of tho Santa Fe trouble and
prosecute the offenders to the limit
was takon by them in the most literal
sense and they decided that, no mat
ter what was the real Intention of the
Administration, the programme mapped
out would be followed.
It is known that there have been fre
quent consultations by the two attor
neys and that in some way they re
ceived the impression that the Admin
istration 'did not really Intend an ener
getic prosecution. Things finally came
to tho pass that Messrs. Harmon and
Judson formally drafted a course of
action which was 'drastic in the ex
treme. Their recent visit to Washing
ton was to lay this programme before
the Administration and serve notice
that, if it was not approved and the
fullest support given them, they would
promptly retire from the case.
Demand Arrest of Guilty.
During the last week the two attor
neys arrived in Washington and held
conferences with the Attorney-General.
The formulated programme was pre
sented to that official. It stated that,
as the Santa Fe officials had flagrant
ly oontlnued tho system of rebates
aftor they had been enjoined in court,
no .course remained except for the Gov
ernment at once to institute proceed
ings la contempt, arrest the responsi
ble heads of tho company, and prose
cute them to the fullest extent.
The Attorney-General seemed . as
tounded at the proposition and urged
tnat the contemplated action was too
drastic entirely, and that ltwas not
necessary to proceed in sucha hurry.
He was informed that the attorneys
had the matter well in hand, that
there was no question as to the guilt
of -tho Santa Fe officials, that the lat
ter were in open and notorious revolt
and were continuing to commit the
charged offenses in flagrant deflanco of
the court's order.
Moody's Plea for Time Wins.
Mr. Moody argued for less drastic
measures, but was informed that
Messrs. Harmon and Judson had pre
sented their programme of recommen
dations as an .ultimatum and, if the Ad
ministration did not Intend to prose
cute thoroughly, they would at once
retire from the case.
The Attorney-General declared that
the matter was of such importance
tnat he did not care to assume the re
sponsibility of giving them an answer;
that it would have to be referred to
tne President for decision. He sug
gested that the attorneys hold their
ultimatum in abeyance until the re
turn of the President from his vaca
tion, and after much "pleading, Messrs.
Harmon and Judson reluctantly' con
sented and left fortheir homes. Hints
of the clash became lenown in official
circles with the result that the above
details reached the ears of outsiders.

WASHINGTON, April 11. Third As
sistant Postmaster-General Madden has
issued a circular letter to all post
masters in which he says:
It has been brought to the attention of

dars, sheet music, patterns, blocks of post
cards, series of cut-out animals, pictures,

reldiers and naval vessels, hand bills, spe
cial detached advertisements, cardboard
spectacles, sheets containing disks of soluble

Hitchcock has received a cablegram from

CHICAGO. April lL-Offerlng to arbi
trate everything in connection with the
Montgomery Ward strike with the excep
tion of the garmcntworkers grievances, a
committee of the Commercial Exchange,
an organization of Chicago employers,
deadlocked with representatives of the
Chicago Federation of Labor and the.
Teamsters Unions at the Grand Pacific
Hotel this afternoon. The meeting ad
journed with no peace in sight. The union
labor committee, fresh fr6m a conference
with Mayor Dunne, set forth emphatical
ly that the teamsters were out in sym
pathy with the garmentworkcrs only, and
that if the grievances of tho garment
workers were not to be considered, there
was nothing to arbitrate.
It was charged that the Wholesale Tail
or Manufacturing Association had en
tered Into a conspiracy to bring back for
mer sweatshop conditions among the gar
mentworkcrs. Another conference will be
A crisis in the controversy growing out
of the Montgomery Ward & Co. team
sters' strike was looked for today by both
sides. It was Mayor Edward F. Dunne's
first day in office, and it was said bt
would be asked by both sides to arrange
an armistice and to act as an arbitrator
of all differences.
C. B. Gciger, chairman of tho State
Board of Arbitration, called upon Man
ager R. J. Thome, of the strike-bound
firm, today, and made formal tender of
the gAod offices of the board to arbitrate
the strike. Mr. Thorne replied that so
many interests had become involved in
the controversy that the matter is beyond
the control of Montgomery, Ward & Co.
He referred the would-be mediator to
John B. Shedd, of Marshall, Field & Co..
who is at the head of the employers' com
mittee. A committee representing the strikers
and the Federation of Labor called upon
Mayor Dunne today and made formal pro
test against closing the streets to union
teamsters. They also protested against
what they termed the brutality of the
police. They asserted that union team
sters are not allowed to drive on certain
streets. Mayor Dunne assured them that
tho union teamsters would have the same
privilege of the streets as any one else as
long as they preserved the peace. The
Mayor said that he would allow no dis
crimination, and that union teamsters and
the Ward company teamsters should have
Cornelius P. Shea, spokesman for the
committee, said to Mayor Dunne:
"The teamsters and the garment
workers aro ready and willing to sub
mit their grievances to arbitration and
to leave it to you. Tho people of Chi
cago have expressed their confidence in
you, and you look good to us."
A smile' overspread the executive's
face. "I am glad to hear you say that,"
Mayor Dunne promised to sit as ar
bitrator, on condition that the mem
bers of the union were law-abiding and
peaceable In the strike. The Mayor in
sisted, however, that this condition be
lived up to, and he told the unoln men
ho would enforce law and order before
he did anything else in the matter.
A desperate struggle between police and
teamsters occurred today at Adams and
Market streets. Six loaded trucks from
the Union Station frelghthouse, on the
way to Montgomery Ward & Co.'s build
ing, bad Just reached the bridge when
they were met by a volley of stones
hurled by strike sympathizers. For 15
minutes the mob had the caravan tied up
under a rain of missiles. A call for police
was made. When help arrived, the teams
were escorted to their destination.

MANY MEN OF
And the Ellers Piano House Has
Arranged So That They AH Shall
The traits and characteristics of pianos
are many and admit of an almost infi
nite variety of combination. And this is
a most excellent thing, for the tastes of
piano-buyers differ as greatly as pianos,
and there are few piano-houses that can
meet the demand In quality and style as
well as price.
Some people want a piano with a sweet,
clear tone; some prefer more volume,
others strength; some like a much lighter
touch than others.
Then again, there are those who ad
mire a richly decorated case: some a
simple, chaste design, while others will
have only a plain, classic outline. A dark
wood case Is the preference of many,
though there are numerous buyers who
are content, for ono reason or other, only
with light wood.
Very well we can sell you a piano with
the sweetest and clearest of tones, a light
touch and a richly decorated case; or the
same tone with a medium touch and a
simple oak or mahogany case, with vari
ous styles of decoration. or the piano
may have a distinctly sympathetic tone,
a light touch and a case beautifully
classic, or whatever other style of case
you prefer, and so on and so on. No
matter what you want in our immense
line, embracing over 30 makes, you are
certain to find it.
And the Best Is This
After you have selected a piano ex
actly to your taste In every way, we can
assure you you will find the price even
lower than you had hoped for.
Every piano we carry Is subject to spe
cial attention in every detail of Its make
and finish, before we finally decide to
adopt It into our family of fine, reliable
makes. It represents absolutely the very
best value obtainable for the price.
