CHICAGO STRIKE LEADERS
Several Street Brawls
Combats Will Appeal to President
Roosevelt Strike Growing.
Chicago, April 29. Chicago is in the throes of an
other terrible labor agitation resulting in a general strike
of all teamster unions. The fighting in the streets today
was the most vicious since the beginning of the strike.
Three persons were shot, two stabbed, and fully a score
suffered from bruises and broken heads. It is not expect
ed that any of the injured will die.
An energetic appeal to the employers and the unions
involved will be made at once by a committee of disinter
ested citizens appointed today by Mayor Dunne. Every
effort will be made to bring the two factions together.
Twelve labor leaden identified with
the teamsters' strike, were indicted to
night by the grand jury. Each indict
ment contains six counts and ahargea
the men with joining a conspiracy.
Trne bills were found against the follow
ing : Cornelius P. Shea, president of
the International Teamsters' union ;
Hngh McGee, president of the truck
drivers' union ; J. McCarthy, business
agent of the truck drivers' union ; M. F.
Kelly, president of the market drivers'
anion ; Charles Wilbrandt, secretary ot
the teamsters' joint council ; George F.
Golden, president of the packing house
teamsters' union : James B. Barry, presi
dent of the railway express drivers' un
ion ; John Smyth , president of the coal
drivers' onion ; Harry Lapp, business
agent of the cool drivers' union ; Charles
Dodd, president of the Chicago Federa
tion of Labor ; Steven Sumner, president
of the milk drivers' anion ; J. W. Young
business agent of the baggage and par
cel drivers' union.
Much secrecy marked the return of
the indictments, and even after they
were returned an effort was made to
keep the names from being learned.

The strike continued to spread today
and a large number of teamsters em
ployed by lumbermen, grocers and va
rious coal companies went out. The
most serious phase of the trouble today
was the aggressiveness of the wholesale
grocers, packers, ice dealers and com
mission men, who decided to Stand with

make deliveries to any of the boycotted

when this action was taken.
There is a strong sentiment among
the labor men to have President Kote-

rives in the city on bis return from his
vacation. He is scheduled to arrive
here on Hay 10 and will be asked to end

Attorney Levy Mayer, declared em
: paafically that the employers were not

and proposed to continue the fight unti
they were "left undisturbed by the la

business without interference."

TklBE OF INDIANS
The debate in Congress about the
lease of Indian lands and cognate sub
ject haa brought out the information
that the Osage Indians are, in the
language of the Oklahoma newspapers,
"the richest people on earth."
The Osagee, who number about 1,800
souls, have on deposit with the National
Government nearly $9,000,000, the pro
ceeds of land soil. The income from
this money at five per cent, ia )450,000 a
year. Each Osage receives about $250 a
year, and if the principal were turned
over to them they would each have
Tbey still own over 1,500,000 acres of
land, or nearly 1,000 acres each, which
is valued at $20 an acre. An Osage In
dian is worth in this world's goods at
least $25,000 and in addition to the $250
yearly interest from the tribal fund
which every Osage receives he also gets
$100 a year from the rental of grazing
Lately rich oil deposits have been dis
covered on the land, and the tribe is re
ceiving an income from this source
which is increasing with great rapidity.
Oil experts have estimated that the in
come from the oil royalties will soon
suffice to give to each and every Osage
many thousand dollars yearly, and the
more liberal of the computers of Oeage
wealth predict that it will soon be im
possible to keep an Osage Indian out of
the United States Senate.

Leaving Nice we went to Marseilles.
The road ran through a very picture-.; ne
country along the shore of the Mediter
ranean. Marsaille ha a fine hay and is
the main shipp:ng point for Southern
France. From Murvailles we went di
rect to Paris, H hours travel, but
stopped over nif fit at Lyon and traveled
only in the day time which took us two
lays. France is a very beautiful coun
try. We thoroughly enjoyed the ride
and ti e scenery, the highly cultivated
farms and the towns every few miles ;
and theVrarra sunshine made a pleasing
picture We li id no English speaking
people with us for two days, but had
Knchmen in onr compartment for
traveling companions and it takes a
Frenchman to be polite and agreeable.
1 admire the French people. When we
stopped at Lyons which is the great silk
manufacturing town of I-ranee, we had
to hunt up the interpreter, fall the rail
roads in Italy and Fran,-e have them;
and told him what wewan'el. HecalV-d
a hotel porter who took us to a good
hotel where me h td a good "upper, room
and breakfast, and then Were brought
back to the train.
We arrived in I 'aris the following eve
ning where we agaiu found an interpre
ter who called a cab and instructed the
driver to Uke us to the hotel we had
selected. All the hotels throughout
Greece, Italy and France, in the large
cities, empl yed either men in the office
or porters who can speak English. The
porter in a European hotel is quite an
important personage ; he has his office
near the entrance and can give all the
information you want; I have always
found them very obliging. We tarried
15 days in Paris and enjoyed it very
much ; stopped at the St. James hotel
which was full of English and Ameri
can people. We visited nearly all the
historical places of interest, was through
the Louvre and the Tu'.ilvriea, the home
of the Kings of France, etc. A week
ago yesterday we left Paris and arrived
in London. Crossed the English Chan
nel in 3 hours from Dieppe to New
We have spent most of our time in
London seeing the points of interest,
the parks, Kings Palace, the Duke of
Wellington's home and several other
houses of the noMlity. An English lady
who came from Paris with us and who
takes great pride in London and every
thing English, stopped at this hotel.
She insisted on showing us around and
made a very excellent, free guide. She
took us through the Parks to the King's
house and along Pall Mall and told M
who lived in the tine mansions, and then I
went with us to the Tube for an under
ground ride. The Tube differs from the j
subways in New York. Instead of sieps !
to go down to take the cars, here they
go down on large elevators and go down I
much larther than the subways of New

finished, arched with white, glazed brick I

about the dear people who have to
put up the money for all the luxuries,
yet I think they are glad to do it and
believe in the Divine right of Kings and
willingly make sacrifices that the Koyal

splendors and luxuries. It is all in the

change of consideration for the circus
by the church pe- pie. But all thia
does not release any one from a moral
obligation to take their children to see
the animals and the accompanying

duty as well aa a pleasure on the part
of the parents, relatives and friends to

GETTING VERY BUSY
Southern Pacific Is Imbued With the Spirit of
Improvement-Will Expend One Million
Dollars In Oregon.
That the Southern Pacific has caught the spirit of
improvement which is manifesiing itself in Oregon is
shown in a recent public statement in which the manag
ment of that system has authnritrerf the. r.w.- ,c
$1,000,000 for the betterment of its lines. Of this sum,
over $800,000 will be paid out for labor alone. The better
ments include ballasting of track, laying of heavy steel,
the replacing of wooden bridges by steel structures and
the improvement of depots and grounds.
Thia news will be highly appreciated
by valley residents, for it shows that
the Southern Pacific is bringing its Ore
gon lines up to the highest standards of
the present day railroad as fast as pos

is being spent in wtstern Oregon for
thia purpose which will substantially
benefit our section, aside from the per
