TALK OF PEACE IN
Project to Secure Permanent
Peace in "Hot Tamale"
EACH WAITS FOR OTHER
Ministers In Communication , With
Home Governments to Bring
About Convention Giving
V. S. and Mexico Power.
WASHINGTON. Aug. , 8. Most of the
representatives of the Central American
republics who remain in Washington or
vicinity called upon Acting Secretary of
State Bacon today, this being diplomatic
day, to talk Individually with htm about
the project for a general convention of
delegates from their countries in TfV'ash-.
ington to endeavor to reach an agreement
which will result In permanent peace In
that quarter of the world. With all par
ties willing to enter upon such a confer
ence, the difficulty appears to lie in the
unwillingness of any to take the Initia
tive on account of personal pride.
Jealousy Between Republics.
Each of the little republics thinks that
it hs a grievance against its neighbor
and in the absence of any apology as a
condition precedent to an international
gathering, would have the other party
make the first advances. The State De
partment here, supported in principle by
the Mexican Government, is extremely
desirous of furthering this conference,
but is estopped from itself formally pro
posing a meeting by a fear that its mo
tives might be misunderstood and it be
suspected of selfish designs and unwar
Agreement Jlay Be Reached.
It is understood that all of the minis
ters are in constant communication with
their home governments upon this sub
ject, and as one of them today said, there
. is reasonable ground for hope that with
in a very short time, through an ex
change of notes or perhaps an informal
personal meeting between the ministers
here, an agreement can be reached for
the convention of the delegates in Wash
ington some time next year. There hve
been other conventions between these
countries looking to the preservation of
the convention, but they were fatally de
fective In lacking a compulsory feature.
. So it has been suggested that if another
treaty Is drawn in Washington as the
outcome of the projected Convention, It
shall clothe America and Mexico with the
positive duty of intervening in the inter
ests of peace in cases of disagreement
that do not yield to treatment by the or
dinary methods of diplomacy.
HATCHING OCT REVOIiCTION
Publication Published in Los An
gelcs to Overthrow Diaz.
WASHINGTON-. Aug. 8. The attention
of the-Department of Justice has been
drawn to a publication known as La
Revolucion, which recently made ite ap
pearance in Los Angeles under the au
spices of a number of Mexicans', who aim
at overturning the government of Presi
dent DIas by revolutionary methods. The
language used by this publication Js rep
resented to be violent to a point that
may render it liable to suppression un
der the terms of the law prohibiting the
circulation of such attacks upon the
rulers of friendly states as are likely to
endanger their lives.
Future Gunboat Satis.
SAN FRANCISCO. Aug. 8. The steam
er President which it is understood will
be converted into a gunboat for the Sal
. vador navy, sailed today for Acajutla,
. one of the ports of that country. Bloom
Brothers, the importers, are the conslg

;RAGE AGAINST FRANCE
, (Continued from Ftnt Page.)
white-robed officials came to the British
-Consulate to surrender. The Consul re
ferred them to the French Consul. Thev
objected that it was impossible to reacn
the French Consulate because the Spanish
Consulate was already firing at every
Moor who passed in the street, and they
feared a similar reception from the
French Consulate. Consul Madden there
upon gave to Muley Amin a formal letter
of introduction to the French Consul and
advised the Moors to carry a white flag.
They then went on. Their mission ap
parently was successful, for the firing
soon ceased and at 9 o'clock public criers
were about proclaiming that the town
was to be shelled no longer. We ate
our next meal with quiet minds.
"It should be explained that the
European residents of Casa Blanca had
all along deprecated any action by the
French with an insufficient force, and this
view the French had been with difficulty
induced to adopt, and even over night, in
announcing their intention of occupying
the town, the French had apparently be
lieved their fleet would arrive immediate
ly and that no resistance could be ex
pected. In fact, Muley Amin had previous
ly declared his willingness to surrender
the town on being informed that resist
ance would be futile. Whether the resist
ance actually offered was an outcome of
a blunder on the part of some individuals
or whether it was tempted by the small
ness of the French landing party it is
impossible to ascertain but what followed
was exactly what was predicted by the
best qualified to speak with knowledge
of the conditions.
Arabs Loot and Kill.
"With the firing of the first shot the
authority of Muley Amin and his organi
zation vanished. His soldiers bolted with
their rifles, leaving the town-exposed to
rapine and pillage, in which they them
selves participated. By breakfast time we
began to see men staggering along the
streets under heavy burdens and fierce
white-robed Arabs, carrying guns and
mounted on fine horses, began to ride
about directing the operations. Even the
women vrexe seen carrying loads and
assisting in the pillage. At first rolls of
cloth and other merchandise, which after
money is first coveted by the Arabs, were
taken from the shops, and then quantities
of miscellaneous household articles were
carried away. After a time we watchers
could hear the sound of hammering on
metal, and we knew the looters were
trying to force the safe of the State
Murder and Pillage Jews.
"Then from afar we heard the shrieking
and walling of the Jews, and we knew
they were being beaten and murdered by
the Arabs. There were other indications
that the French were not able with the
small force at their command to secure
oossession of the three landward gates.
The increasing number of Arab en g aged
in the work of pillage showed us that,
attracted by the sound of flrinr, the
tribesmen were galloping in to fulfill
the dream of the Arab's life the looting
of a town.
"Throughout all the disorder acd dis
turbance, however, not the c lightest
offense was offered to the Briti gti .con
sulate, and this in spite of t.pe fact
that during the five or six hours cff pillag
ing Arabs were constantly pas sing the
gates. Almost all the English residents
were so confident that they would not be
harmed that they remained- in their
own houses and declined to takeorelfuge at
the consulate. -
"During the morning the Frjtich cruis
ers Forbin and Du Chayia and fne Spanish
gunboat Don Alvaro de Azan arrived,
but It was 2 o'clock in the a'S.ernoon be
fore further landing parties succeeded in
stemming the looting in a. arnall portion
of the town.
Will Not Speak of 'SBBorrors.
"The wailing and the shooting in the
Jewish quarter -and the section inhabited
by rich Moors continued, e?d the horrors
that took place subsequent1? in large sec
tions of the town, not covered by the
French and the Spanish rifle-flre, never
will .be told. From the i:k of the con
sulate I saw Jews being beaten and shot
and their houses being; emptied by a
rabble led by Arabs. I saw Moorish
women being dragged, squealing from
their houses. People vSio know the local
comdltions best decline ' to speak or think
of the horrors to whic'a the town of Casa
Blanca has been subj-cted.'"

STORY WAS TRUE
Bulkley Wells Finds Body of
Barney Where Adams Said
It Was to Be Found.
IDENTIFIED' BY DENTIST
Body of Murdered Nonunion Miner
Found Near Telluride, ' Confirm
ing Adams' Repudiated Con
fession Arrests Come Next.
DENVER'. Aug. 8. A special to the
News from Telluride, Colo., says:
What is said to be the skeleton of W.
J. Barney, the timberman employed on
the Smuggler-Union mine, who mysteri
ously disappeared in the month of June,
1901. was exhumed yesterday afternoon
near the Alta mill, near Gold King Basin,
12 miles from town, by General Bulkeley
Wells, manager of the Smuggler-Union
Mining Company, and others.
According to Wells' account, the re
mains were found in an improvised grave
and its location was pointed out by Steve
Adams, now in jail in Idaho awaiting a
second trial on the charge of murder,
when he was here in June. 1906. in the cus
tody of Wells.
Adams Showed Grave to Wells.
It was after Adams made the alleged
confession which he afterward repudiated,
and in which he is supposed to have ac
knowledged being the assassin of Arthur
Collins, formerly general manager of the
Smuggler-Union Mine, and to be familiar
with the places where the bodies of W. J.
Barney and Wesley Smith, a shift boss
of the Liberty Bell Mine, were .- buried,
that Adams was 'brought down here by
General Wells to point out the graves of
the missing men. When Wells and Adams
went up into Gold King Basin, there was
more snow on the ground than had been
expected, and several years haviOB
elapsed. since the body had been burled,
Adams was unable to determine exactly
where the grave was. He . showed General
Wells the place according to the best of
his recollection. Adams evidently gave
an accurate description of the place, for
it is understood little difficulty was expe
rienced in uncovering the grave.
Part of the body, including the teeth
and that portion by which identifica
tion could be most readily established,
was brought to town by General Wells.
How Barney Offended.
Barney incurred the ill will of the
union here by working at the Smuggler
mine after the strike in April, 1901. It
was this strike that caused the riots
of July 3 of that year. . Adams is said
to have told Wells that Barney's body
was stripped of his clothing, which
was buried in another place. While
here in 190S Adams is said to have
pointed out to Wells the tree, in the
darkness of which he claimed to have
stood when he fired the charge of
buckshot into the back of Manager
Collins. He is also said to have told
Wells where he threw the cartridge
after removing it from the.gun, .

TO YOUNG MAN.
Youth Said to Be Enamored of Wile
' of Ernest Bonomi, Who Was
Slain While Asleep.
THE DALLES. Or., Aug. 8. (Special.)
Sheriff Chrlsman today swore out a
warrant for the arrest of Ed Gosson, a
former resident of The Dalles who is
supposed now to be living in. Idaho,
charging him with the murder of Ernest
Bonomi. who was shot last Monday as
he lay asleep in bed at his home on Mill
Creek, seven miles south of this city.
Gosson is the son of Charles E. Gosson,
a farmer whose place is nearby the Bon
omi ranch. He Is 26 years of age and
has lived in this community for several
years with his parents, working as a la
borer on various ranches, the Bonomi
place among others. For some time past
current gossip has branded him as the
lover of Mrs. Bonomi, an'd It has been
generally understood that he was the
cause of the domestic infelicities which
arose in the Bonomi household.
In March last Gosson left The Dalles,
going to Ireana, Idaho, and in June Mrs.
Bonomi is known to have visited him
there, although her trip away from home
was ostensibly for the benefit of her
health. Upon her departure for Idaho,
Bonomi became enraged and published a
notice in local papers repudiating her
bills. However, upon her return a few
days later, through the intervention of
friends, matters were patched up between
the couple and Mrs. Bonomi has since
lived with her husband.
For Gosson, whose present whereabouts
are unknown, the officers are making a
diligent search. His parents are regard
ed as highly respectable people.

in as rapidly as possible. The
company closed all Its city branch
offices and brought such operators as
would come to the main office and put
them to work. These outside operators
were all women. Several declined to go,
and joined the ranks of the strikers. -
The strike was not " ordered by the
union officials and is said not to be
sanctioned by them. W. L. Burke, one
of the strikers, said today:
"Superintendent Lamb, of this division,
has a list of names of our men who have
been active in the union work and have
supported, at least morally, the strikes
against the company in other cities. These
men are being discharged from the com
pany's employ as fast as any subterfuge
can be found for it. We simply are forced
to make a stand or be kicked out. one by
one. That is the reason we nave struck.
We have asked a conference with Mr
Lamb." Mr. Lamb said:
"The. men asked for nothing, made no
statement of their grievances or explana
tion of their action. I discharged Oper
ator Ryan because business in various
ways was being deliberately delayed, ow
ing to a disagreement between a woman
operator in the Oakland office and him
self. I received last night a communica
tion from the men asking a conference,
but I will not say that I will treat with
them at all. They are not in our employ.
As for my alleged discrimination against
any of the men, I deny that emphatical
At a meeting of the striking operators
today more than 50 were present. It was
decided that none of the operators would
return to work unless Ryan went with
them. Steps looking to negotiations with
Manager Miller on this basis were taken.
Mr. Miller had notified the men that they
could come back to work and that a com
mittee from the strikers would be re
ceived. Telegrams were received from national
officers of the Commercial Telegraphers'
Union. President Sam Small sent the fol
lowing from Oakland:
"Deplore hasty action, but realize jus

If trouble not settled In 48 hours, will go
Another from Vice-President Beattie at
Washington was as follows:
"Your manly course against injustice
has my hearty indorsement."
There is strong sentiment among the
operators in favor of asking the opera

tie up the city's telegraph communication

Sign Pledge Not to Work With Non

DENVER, Aug. 8. As soon as word
came from Chicago that the operators
in the Western Union office there had
gone, on strike at midnight, a petition
was started in circulation among the
operators in the office of the Western
Union in this city which approved of
the action of the Chicago men, and also
stated that under no conditions would

operators in the Chicago or Los An
President Fred Wessel, of the local
union, was called from his home to the
operating-room of the local office for
the purpose of advising the men not
to take any definite action until in
structions were received from the head
officials of the National body.
The petition was signed by prac
tically all the union mep, but nothing
had been done further up to 12:30
o'clock. Mr. Wessel was refused ad
mittance to the operating room upon
instructions from the Western Union
headquarters, according to his state

of the union for tomorrow afternoon
at 3 o'clock. The local men declare
they will not work with nonunion

INSULTED WOMAN OPERATOR
Miller Defends Ryan's Discharge
and Condemns Strike.
SAN FRANCISCO. Aug. 8. I. N.
Miller, assistant general superintend
ent of the western division of the
Western Union, said today that he
w.duld probably leave fqr Los Angeles
"The union men are smarting under
the defeat suffered in the recent strike
here and they since have endeavored to
make . it as uncomfortable as possible
for the operators who remained loyal
to us," said Mr. Miller. "Operator
Ryan was discharged in the Los
Angeles office because he had insulted
Mrs. Sadie Nichols, one of the oper
ators in the Oakland office who re
mained at work during the strike, and
also for maliciously delaying business.
We have had to discharge one or two
operators for the same cause."
Mr. Miller said that while the West
ern Union had never indirectly or di
rectly recognized the Telegraphers'
Union, the company had not discrim
inated against men belonging to the
organization, but had given the oper
ators to understand that the company
meant to run its-own business. The
action of the men at Los Angeles,
he sajd, was as unjustifiable as that of
the operators in declaring the strike
here several weeks ago, stating the of
ficials were always ready to. listen to
grievances of the employes.
Asked if he thought there was any
likelihood that the strike would ex
tend to other cities, Mr. Miller said:

WORCESTER LIBRARY IiOVES
NOT HORATIO ALGER.
Honors Writer for Boys by Putting
Him in Same Class With Mark
Twain and Whitman.
WORCESTER, . Mass., Aug. 8. The
works of Horatio Alger, Jr., the noted
writer of books for boys, have been
barred from the shelves of the Worces
ter Public Library. Alger is now in
the same class as Mark, Twain, Robert
W. Chambers, Walt Whitman and other
well known producers of literature, some
of whose works have been barred from
free public libraries in Worcester County,
towns and cities.
At the library the reason given for
barring Alger's books is that they are
not truthful and are too sensational.
The feeling among the Portland libra
rians was little short of -indignation when
it was stated that Walt Whitman and
Mark Twain had been barred. Then the
idea presented itself that a mistake must
have been made and ttlis became general.
"I cannot understand why any library
should eliminate the works of Walt
Whitman," said Miss Isom, of the Port
land Public Library. "He is one of our
greatest poets. , I regard him as stimu
lating, helpful and a writer of far-reaching
instincts. It is beyond my under
standing that he should have been taken
from the Worcester Library, which is
really an excellent one. I can see no
reason, either, for removing Mark Twain.
"It must be that these writers have
been transferred from one department to
another and a mistake has been made in
sending out the report. We have all of
Mark Twain's works and all of Whit
man's and I should feel very much
grieved to see them removed.
"As to Alger and Chambers, I see noth
ing objectionable to either of them, for
that matter. We do not keep Alger's
works here because in buying books we
try. to get the best possible, and do not
feel that his works come under that
head. There is such a large variety of
better children's books that we have
bought none of Algers and - have none at
"As to Robert W. Chambers the same
thing may be said. I 'cannot see but
that he is as good as most of our writers
of popular fiction."
