STRIKERS WILL RETURN
Only Those Guilty of Acts of Vio
lence Proved Will Be Barred
From Further Employment.
CHICAGO, Sept. 13. (By the Asso
ciated Press.) The policy committee
of the striking railway shop crafts
today authorized B. M. Jewell, strike
leader, to sign a separate peace
agreement with individual roads.
This action, it -was stated, would end
' the strike on from 30 to 52 of the 202
class 1 railways of the country
which entered into direct negotia
tions with Mr. Jewell recently at
Baltimore, and with any others who
cared to accept the peace terms.
With the announcement that par
tial peace had been voted, came the
first definite information that S.
Davies Warfield. president of the
Seaboard Air line, and representa
tives of a railroad securities com
pany, said to control $13,000,000,000
uf stock, was responsible for nego
tiations that finally ended in the

Thr agreement was reachVd be
fore the committee of 90 adjourned
at 2 o'clock this afternoon without

At that time Mr. Jewell stated a
"decision had been reached and will
be outlined in a statement to be
issued late this evening." Officially
this was the only statement given
out by the union until the an

when all hope of ending the strike
even through the aid of' the "big
four" brotherhoods had ended. Mr.
Warfield telephoned Mr. Jewell and
arranged further conferences. One
week later Mr. Jewell departed se
cretly for Baltimore and there the
basis for today's settlement was
Eastern Lines Are Next.
In addition to Mr. Warfield, Mr.
Jewell and his executive council,
the meeting was attended by Dan
iel Willard, president of the Bal
timore & Ohio, and A. H. Smith,
president of the New York Central.
The basis for peace was agreed to
by both factions. Then Mr. Jewell
and his officers returned to Chi
cago while Mr. Warfield began an
active campaign to line .up eastern
roads. Mr. Willard came west and
, opened secret conferences here with
western railroad executives.
Last Thursday Mr. Jewell author
ized a call for his policy committee
to meet in Chicago Monday, Septem
ber 11. ' Nearly all the first morn
ing was consumed by a session of
the executive council. That after
noon it reported in the Willard
Jewell agreement. Then Began a
struggle for peace, with Mr. Jewell,
his executive council and strike
chairmen on western railroads en
deavoring to bring "fnto the nego
tiations line chairmen on roads not
parties to the agreement.
Not until peace was voted did the
details of the bitter fight become,
known. For three days Mr. Jewell
and his associates talked, pleaded
and argued for an acceptance of
ibe settlement basis plan. Fearing
failure, he did not entertain a mz-
lion Tor a vote on the proposition
until it was virtually assured thct
he would have the necessary majo;

(By Chicago Tribune "Leased Wire.)
CHICAGO, Sept. 13. The fashion
show which is being staged by the

William S. ("Bill") Haft, motion
picture actor, and his wife, Wini
fred Westover, screen actress, met
over the cradle of their first-born
today for the first time in several
The meeting occurred at the home
of Mrs. Hart's mother in Santa Mon
ica, a suburb, where Mrs. Hart went
after she and her husband had sep
arated and where the child,- a boy,
was born a week ago.
It was Hart's first view of his
son, who has been named William S.
Hart Jr. Hart went to his wife's
residence and asked to see the child.
As the baby could not be taken out
side the house. Hart was invited
inside. Friends "Said the meeting
between husband and wife was de
void of any unpleasant incident.
"I tell you, honestly, I believe
that little fellow was glad to see
me," said Hart later. "He really
acted like it. He laughed and gig
gled. We had a great time to
gether. I'm in right with him now.
I know he's for me. I swear he's
the finest baby, I ever saw. And 1
don't say that because he's mine. I
am looking at it just as coldly as if
it were somebody else's. He looks
just like me, too, and when he gets
bit he's going to be a long, tall
chap like me, too. Why, he isn't a
baby; he's a regular man. He's
mine clear through."
Asked jf the meeting today might
lead to a reconciliation. Hart shook
. "That's impossible," he said.
The Los, Angeles Times .tomorrow
will print what it describes as the
terms of the settlement" betwee
Hart and his wife. These includ
his establishing a trust fund o

SALEM, Or., Sept. 13. (Special.)
Richard M. Brumfield, Roseberg
dentist, under death sentence for the
murder of Dennis Russell of Dil
lard, " Douglas county, committed
suicide in the Oregon state peniten
tiary here during the noon hour to
day by hanging himself with an im
provised rope made from strips of
canvas torn from the mattress of
Two letters left by Dr. Brumfield
were found by the prison, officials.
These were addressed to Dr. Brum-
f ield's wife and to James Lewis,
warden of the penitentiary. In
both letters Dr. Brumfield declared
that he was innocent of the Russell
murder and expressed a desire to
end it all.
Div Brumfield apparently had laid
his plans for the suicide with a
view of eluding any suspicion on
the part of the prison attendants.
The blankets on his bed had been
rolled, a newspaper had been laid
on the pillows, and a table on which
were a number of letters, books and
trinkets, stood at the inside of the
cell door. To the casual observer
standing outside the cell the set
ting indicated that the doctor was
lying on the bed.
Rope Fastened to Pipe.
After placing the rope about his
neck the doctor apparently climbed
upon a guard rail a few inches
above his bed, from where he threw
the other end of the rope over a
steam pipe near the ceiling of his
cell. He then fastened his hands
with strips torn from a sheet and
jumped into space. Penitentiary
officials said that Dr. Brumfield
took the precaution .to tie his hands
that he might escape a struggle in
case1 he weakened.
When Chester Everson, chapel
guard at the prison, arrived at Dr.
Brumfield's cell with his dinner at
13:50 o'clock he called to the pris
oner, but received no response. Mr.
Everson then peered, through the
cell door, and at first thought the
doctor was sleeping. When further
calls on the part of the guard failed
to arouse the prisoner the cell door
was unlocked. In a dark corner of
the cell, which was not visible from
the outside, the officers found the
body. Life was extinct and prison
officials said he probably had been
dead for 15 minutes. The coroner
then was notified, and the body
later was turned over to a local un
dertaker. : .
Wife Comes for Body.
Mrs. Brumfield, who has been em
ployed in Portland for the past two
weeks, and Dr. Brumfield's 'sister,
Mrs. Charles Patrick of Willamina,
arrived here tonight and claimed
the body. It will be sent to Port
land tomorrow for cremation.
Prison officials said today that Dr.
Brumfield had been a model pris
oner since he arrived here a year
ago and had never intimated that he
ntended to commit suicide. Al
though in solitary confinement he
as cheerful and spent most of his
Lyme reading' and writing. Before
being brought to the penitentiary.
however, he. attempted to commit
suicide in the Douglas county jail
by slashing his throat with a razor.
He was found a few minutes after
committing the act and physicians
were summoned. He "fully recovered
from this attempt made on his life.
In his letter to Mrs. Brumfield,
the prisoner reviewed briefly their
domestic life, and said he hoped she
would not be terribly shocked by his
determination to go.
The doctor's letter to Mrs. Brum-
ield reads in full:
Wednesday, Sept. 14. My Tiddie Girl:
hops you are not terribly shocked by
my determination to go on over. When
Dr. Smith told me that my neuritis

Right Smart Steppers Now Must
Learn Corte, Mldia Luna,
Tango and New Waltzes.
Girls, gather around and watch us
do the catty foxtrot, the latest in the
kaleidoscopic succession of animal
dances, just approved by the west
ern branch of the American National
Association of Dancing Masters in
convention. And watch the corte
step, the Midia Luna, the tango
scroll and the new wait combina
tlons which you will have to know
to be In the swim this winter.
Dancing will undergo a decided
change If the sanctions of 25 of the
leading dancing masters of ths Pa
cifio coast and the far west, who
just met at Salt Lake City in con
vention, count. There the easterners
showed the westerners what is wha
in dancing and the westerners went
home to tell the folks. Montrose
M. Ringler of Portland came hom
too. He says thingsjwill be differ
ent on the hardwood floors and
the orchestra platform.
. The use of firearms, trumpets and
many drums and cymbals, recently
so essential in producing dance
music, will go into the discard and
softer, sweeter music will come.
Slower dances are the thing. Th
big dances will be adaptations of
the beautiful Argentine tango to th
fox trot. This, say the dancing mas
ters, presents opportunity for th
use of delightful Spanish music,
which is neither so fast or so ac
centuated. There will be less bob
bing, less hopping, less catch-as
catch-can, and easier going
The foxtrot will still be the basi
of most dances, but it will be con
siderably modified by steps remin
iscent of and similar to the tango,
The Corte step, the Midia Luna an
the tango scroll are some of th
modifications, and waltz steps wil
have to be relearned for some of th
new ones. ,
The catty foxtrot is not exactly
for the jubilant, but it is more
than the others. It belongs to th
family also including the came
walk, the foxtrot, the fish step
and the monkey glide. At last
year's convention the "cat step" wa
introduced and promptly thrown ou
let it be said to the credit of dancin
masters. Now it comes fo-"i agai
in more appropriate form. It is
slow, gliding walk with a slightly
lifting step just like Tabby use
when she gets up from in front o
the fireplace and starts walking to
ward a saucer of milk.
