Sinking Man Grabs Antlers and
Rides Animal to Safety.
INTERNATIONAL FALLS, Minn., Aug.
4.- A thrilling escape from drowning
in Rainy River, near Fort Francis, Ont-,
by catching hold of the antlers of a
big bull moose, which was swimming
across the river, was the experience
yesterday of Clyde W. Buell, Minne
apolis, student of the State University.
Buell is working at Fort Francis for a
lumber company. "He was out on a
raft of logs. After striking a Jam the
raft loosened and Buell, clinging to a
single piece of timber, was carried
down the -river toward the rapids.
Buell had given up when he saw the
moose, with its head and antlers above
water, swimming safely from the
rapids. Buell let loose of his log and
grabbed the antlers and shifted himself
to the animal's back and rode it into
shallow water. , . .

Employes May Only Ride at City's

When a city employe rides on the
streetcars on tickets furnished by the

that he is riding on city business. To
get tickets in future, employes in the
various city departments must requlsl

ruling was made yesterday by Purchas
ing Agent Wood.
It has been customary to furnish
street-car tickets to different bureaus
and departments in quantities of 50 to
200 books, without any check on how
the individual tickets were used.
Even the serial numbers on tickets
issued to employes will be kept track
of. Through this number, it will be

WHEATLAND, Cal.. Aug. 4. With
six companies of militia camped in the
school grounds, and the hop-pickers
encampment on the Durst Brothers
ranch reduced to a few hundred per
sons, there was little indication hers
tonight of the rioting which brought
death yesterday to four men, among
them District Attorney E. T. Manwell,
of Tuba County.
Every train today carried out a full
load of hop-pickers from the force of
more than 2000 which occupied ths
tents, sacking shelters and even brush
leanto's which formed the harvesters'
camp. Every hour saw the number
dwindle as the workers were paid oH
and departed by train, on wagon or

Soldlersi 3fay Quit Camp.
Rumors were rife about town of vari
ous parties of Industrial Workers oi
the World, said to ba marching to the
scene. No foundation for these reports
could be discovered, and General Forties
said tonight the .-soldier probafe-iys
would be withdrawn tomorrow.
The feature today was the total lack
of ill feeling toward the guardsmen
displayed by the pickers.
The Orovllle and Chico companies
arrived soon after daylight today and
marched at once to the center of the
pickers' comp. Soon afterward two
Sacramento companies rolled in on
their special train and the militiamen
were immediately withdrawn to the
schoolground to make camp.
Troops were called on only once to
day. That was Just before noon.
when Chief of Police McCoy, of Marys
ville, in charge of the peace officers of
the camp, located William Beck; a
youthful Mexican, against whom Mc
Coy had evidence tending to . connect
him with last night's shooting.
Cordon Surrounds Suspect.
McCoy appealed to General Forbes
to guard the camp and prevent any
man from leaving it until Beck had
been arrested. The cordon was thrown
about the camp In a few minutes.
Three automobiles loaded with guards
men dashed through the crooked camp
street and the men sprang out to form
a skirmish line to the north and east.
Another line dashed to the other side
and before they knew what was hap
pening those in camp were hemmed In
by a line of loaded rifles.
Beck made no resistance. McCoy said
he had one witness who would swear
he saw Beck firing with an automatic
pistol during the riot, while another
would testify he had - seen him Just
after the shooting with an automatio
in his hand.
Beck was hurried to the city Jail
in an automobile. Later he and six
other prisoners were taken to Marys
ville for safe keeping.
In a carefully prepared statement
Issued tonight Ralph H. Durst, one ot
the owners of the ranch, who partici
pated in every scene of yesterday's
trouble, described the riot as he saw 1U
Short Leader Sways 'Crowd.
Durst says the workers gathered
to discuss grievances Sunday morning.
A committee approached the ranch of
fice, followed by virtually the whole
population of the camp. Durst says:
"I met them in front of the barn.
Half, a dozen leaders mounted the
wagon standing there and they waited
until the crowd got up near. They
seemed to want everybody on hand,
and one man, the leader, a short fel

crowd and obtained silence without
The leader read from a paper a lisl

noted down somewhat as follows:

fields twice daily.
A committee of pickers to inspect and
