Investigation Proves None
Have Hit Leiter Mine,
Strikers Emphatically Deny They
Have Attacked City, Also That
They Are on a Strike Side
of Employer.
DUQUOIN, 111.. Dec 3. After several
months of labor trouble at the Leiter
mines In the town of Zeigler, during
which many reports of active skirmishing
have emanated from the rival camps, the
situation at Zeigler is one of thp most pe
culiar in the history of recent labor dis
agreements. It is stated by disinterested
persons living near Zeigler that firing has
been heard for every night for several
weeks at the stockade surrounding the
mines and pumphouse, several miles from
the town. Alter a thorough investigation,
however, staff correspondents of St. Louis
newspapers declare they have not been
able to find any marks of bullets either
on the stockade or at the pumphouse.
Representatives of the strikers declare
emphatically that there Is fsJsity ifi every
claim made by the . Leiter supporters,
William Morris, ot Duquoin, . who is the
head official of the United Mineworkers'
Union in Southern Illinois, and who is the
executive authority in the Zeigler strike.
"I deny absolutely that any of the
union men have had the least thing to do
with the firing which "has been said to
have occurred in the vicinity of Zeigler.
It is my belief that what firing lias oc
curred, was done either at the instigation
of Mr. Leiter and his executive officers.
or by some of his force of private guards
who have been discharged within tho past
Reports sent out from surrounding
towns that miners and strikers have been
wounded have proved, upon investigation.
to be unfounded. From the latest au
thehtlc reports there are about 25 men
encamped about four miles from Zeigler.
In the town there are about SO miners,
85 militiamen and 40 Deputy Marshals, in
eluding both state and Federal officers.
Origin of the Trouble.
The trouble originated after the shafts
had been sunk in the mines. Joseph
Leiter. more than a year ago, acquired
several thousand acres of coal lands and
before beginning active mining built
what has been termed the "model town
of Zeigler." He brought more than 100
laborers and miners Into tho town, and
the work of starting the shafts was aus
piciously Inaugurated. The wage agree
ment with tho miners remained in- force
until coal veins wore reached and the
active work of bringing the product of
the mine to the surface and shipping it
to market was begun.
Mr. Leiter, in keeping with the plans
which he had adopted when ho entered
the mining field, determined to have only
the latest and most Improved machinery
in use at the Zeigler mine. Among the
mechanical adjuncts employed was a
Bteam loading device which Mr. Leiter
asserted was capable of loading a stated
number of tons per hour. Representatives
of tho Miners' Union examined the load
ing machine, and differed with Mr. Leiter
regarding the amount of work that could
be accomplished in a given period.
As the men were to bo paid by piece
work this Was a vital matter, and upon
the loading machine is said to have
hinged all the trouble that has followed.
Mr. Letter's wage proposition was re
jected -by the union miners. After the
expiration of tho time given by the union
for a revision of the proposed wage scale,
the union men left Zeigler and formed
what has proved to be a permanent
camp, about four miles distant from the
Trains Fired Upon From Ambush.
Immediately upon tho establishment of
the union miners' camp, reports of
clashes between the union men and men
employed by Leiter to tako their places
began to emanate from various sources.
Several trains carrying nonunion men to
the mines were fired upon from ambush,
but there was absolutely nothing to con
nect the striking miners with the oc
currences. Although generally termed "strikers,"
the officials of the union authorized to
speak for the men declare they are not
-m a strike. They say Mr. Leiter offered
a wage scale to which they could not
agree, and so they left the mines. They
also deny all knowledge of the alleged
attacks on the town of Zeigler, and while
admitting they have attempted to per
suade the miners to leave the employ of
Leiter they declare no violence has been
For nearly three months absolute quiet
reigned in tho neighborhood of Zeigler,
although it was stated the town was
practically in a state of siege, and the
miners remained in their camp. A little
more than a month ago renewed reports
of trouble came from the vicinity, and It
was reported that a fight had taken place
between the mine guards and persons
attacking the stockade. Tho detonations
of firearms were heard for several hours,
but it iff said upon good authority that
nn one was injured, and newspaper men
have failed to find marks of bullets.
Indictment Against Leiter.
Tho announcement that Leiter had been
indicted by the Perry County grand jury
caused- Tenewed interest to be taken in
the situation. The indictment charges
Leiter with- having '.'feloniously taken
men under armed guards through Perry
County," and the "aiding and abetting of
hiring armed guards and the transporta
tion of men under guards."
Henry J. Piatt, Lelters attorney, sums
up the situation as follows:
"Our "emploj'es have been reduced to a
state' of- terror by the bushwhacking
wnlcn nas become a nightly occurrence,
Our stockade and our property has been
fired upon repeatedly, and there has been
one murder which I have no hesitancy in
saying was the work of union miners
on strike, .and in accordance with tho
plans of the organization which holds
control over the strikers.
"On some nights hundreds -of shots
have been fired from the surrounding
woods. The rapid fire guns have replied
whenever the location of tho attackers
could be found. We appealed to the Sher
iff of this county for protection and two
companies of militia came in response to
his request for help. There Is every rea
sonfi from the standpoint of justice and
law, for the bringing of tho troops."
Two Attacks Last Wight.
ZEIGLER, 111., Dec 3. Two distinct at
tacks have been made on the Gordon
block-houses, situated half way between
the pump and the administration building
of -the coal company. One attack was at
7 o'clock and the second begun at 30:20
o'clock, and at 11 o'clock tonight was still

Drawback Feature of Law.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 3. President
Roosevelt was called upon today to con
sider an important question in connection
with the present tariff law. Secretary
Shaw and Senator Hansbrough, of North
Dakota, talked to him regarding the pay
ment of, a drawback on flour manufac
tured In this country from Imported
wheat and then exported. Senator Hans

raisers of the West, but he declined to
go into details regarding the matter. The
by-products of flour made in these clr
cumstances are giving the Government
some concern. No decision was reached.

known to be in favor of liberalizing the
drawback features of the DIngley law.
Girl Baby Has Lived Weeks to the
Surprise of Medical Science.
SOMERVILLE, Mass., Dec. 3. A fe
male child with two heads, born in
East Somerville 12 weeks ago, is at
tractlng -much Interest among; the
medical fraternity about Boston. The
physician who had charge of the case,
in discussing the matter with other
doctors, said:
"It is unprecedented in the annals of
medical science. The child has two
separate necks, each supporting a head
one facing to the front and the other
to the rear. The latter head is not well
formed. Its features are irregular and
imperfect, there being no eyes. The
child weighed 14 pounds at birth.
"The baby is In the best of health

Ankeny crowd, and Foster will receive
scant consideration from them.
Much tho same reason will prevent
the Ankeny men going to a King Coun
ty candidate, although considerable
pressure has been brought to bear on
them by some of Xing County's 'hold
over Senators. Theso Senators early
in the Ankeny fight two years ago are
reported to have agreed to vote, for
Ankeny as soon as Preston of King1
had demonstrated his inability to be
olected. In return for this thoy are
said to have demanded a promise that
Ankeny would support a King1 County
man two years hence. The Seattle !
pressure on these men was so strong, '
however, that they were unable to
break away until their assistance was
of. but little value.
When it became known beyond a
doubt that a sufficient number of Demo
crats to elect Ankeny were getting
ready to step- into the breach and break,
the deadlock which was obstructing
legislation, a portion of the King
County delegation who objected to
Democratic aid in electing a Republi
can Senator, broke away and voted' for
Ankeny. As this aid was not forth
coming until it was not actually need
ed, the Ankeny men felt released from
any obligation which they might pre
viously, have felt for King County help
and are now inclined to let both King
and Pierce fight it out independent of
outside influence. The Southwest and
the Northwest have frequently formed
very formidable combines and Kins and
Pierce respectively have also wielded
great power by .working their delega
tions as a unit. . A Southeastern com

OMAHA, Dec. 3. President Cunning
ham., of the National Rural Lettercarrlers'
Association, who has a route running out
of South Omaha, has had no information
that tho matter referred to in this dis
patch is to be taken up officially, although
ho had seen a newspaper Interview by
Chairman Overstreet, of tho House Post
office Committee, referring to it shortly
after election. Mr. Cunningham was
averse to discussing the subject without
having more definite information, but
"The charge that the lettercarrlers
made an effort to defeat certain Con
gressmen is untrue. The carriers made
no organized fight against any candidate
for Congress. It would be absurd to think
of the carriers in Congressman Over
street's district making an organized ef
fort against him, as there are only about
20 or 30 carriers in his district. Our offi
cial organ expressly advised that the
rural lettercarrlers, as an association.
take no active part in politics."

BERLIN, Dec. 3. Six million fewer
bottles of champagne were drunk In
Germany during the first six months of
fiscal year, and 8,000,000 fewer cigars
wdre smoked. These facta appear from
the figures which Finance Minister von
Stengel submitted to tho Reichstag to
day. The wlno and tobacco revenues
show a falling off of $975:000, while the
use of spirits increased, as is evident
from the $2,500,000 addition to the
revenues from distilling. Among other
curiosities, the budget shows an in
crease of $2,937,500 In the revenues
from sugar since the Brussels sugar
convention, and a reduction in the rev
enues from the domestic sugar tax,
showing lower prices of sugar and
greatly Increased consumption.
The revenues for the year ending'
March 31 are larger by $875,000 than
the estimates. There is an Increase of

Herreshoff's Invention' That May Su

Tho Herreshoffs of yacht-building fame
have invented a torpedo conveying and
propelling system which. If successful.
does away with, the torpedoboat, and re
duces the submarine in Its possibilities.
Tho business of the torpedoboat Is to con
vey tho torpedo within striking distance
of the battleship or cruiser and to dis
charge tho torpedo. The Herreshoffs pro
pose to construct a larger torpedo than
tho present standardized "Whitehead, and
to use it just as a small whaleback boat
would be employed. Two men wearing life-
preservers set out with it from shore, or
from large vessels, and navigate it within
striking distance of tne enemy s craft,
point it, lock the steering gear, slip off
Into the waterand wait to be picked up.
Tho torpedo thus launched with far better
aim than from a tube, and with a longer
carrying range, could scarcely fall to
sink its victim. As it is now, the percent
age of torpedoes that "arrive" is but one

is the safest and most efficient disinfectant
arid purifier in nature, but few realize its
value when taken into tho human system
for the same cleansing purpose.

Charcoal sweetens the breath' after

and other odorous vegetables.
Charcoal effectually clears and im
proves' tho complexion, it whitens the
teeth and further acts as a natural and
eminently safe cathartic.
It absorbs the Injurious gases which col

fects tho mouth and throat from the
poison of catarrh.
All druggists sell charcoal in one form
or another, but probably the best char
coal and tho most for the money Is in
Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges: they are

in tablet form, or rather in the form of
large, pleasant-tasting lozenges, the char

it is that no possible harm can result
