President R, t Glover of Bt Loula, of
the Order of Railway Telegraphers,
made the following statement last night:
"The strike of the operators of the

due to the refusal 'of a demand for an
Increase of wanes amounting. to' about
10 per cent and several other demsnds
affecting the promotion and government
of operators. ''.,
, "A grievance committee had the mat
ter In charge, but . it was not able to
effect a settlement. It was then referred
to the president, who was also unable
to ' effect a settlement. A referendum
vote was then taken on the- proposal to
strike, and about 00 per cent of the
operator voted In favor Of supporting'
th demands by a strike."

have fled, and are murdering and
pillaging In all directions. '
In view of th Increasing spread' of

by the Turks In these 4istrlcta And the
evident intention of the aggressors to
earry the war of extermination to other

today to locate him, but .they failed.
He told Mrs. . . Ktngslsy, at -whose

Bobbery Vot te Motive.
Detective Hartman, who vat assigned
to th oas this morning.. Is unable to
stat at this time his opinion of th af
fair, but says It .is perhaps ' ths most
mysterious oas he ever worked on. . No
robbery waa perpetrated, according to
all interested part lea A purse contain
ing 1100 in gold was left in his Inside
coat pocket, and his watch was not
touched. Therefor th theory of rob
bery say Mr. Hartman, Is hardly th
correct one. He declares revenge 1 the
only object he can see In the attack, but
who the guilty parties are he Is unable
The assault was th most peculiar re

Marguerite avenue. He waa found lying
next to the sidewalk by two women from
Woodstock. They ran to the home of
Mrs. W. G. Ksnt to give the alarm, and
when they had returned Miss Hattle
Klngsley and her father, David Kings-
ley, bad arrived on the scene. Neither
of the Klngsley would talk about th
Prior to hi departure. Smith, left hi
hat, a white one with a bead band, at
the Klngsley home. When Miss Hattle
Klngsley reached him she waa seen to
place th band In Smith's coat pocket
and his hat on his head. -Just why
Smith should leave the Klngsley home
alone and . without hi hat, walk to J he
spot where he was assaulted, which is
four block away, la something the po
lio want to know, but have not yet
learned. The coincidence, the police de
clare, IS- most striking, especially so,
when It is said that Smith and Miss
Klngsley are -engaged to be married.
' And Another..
The rapid arrival of Mr. Klngsley at
th scene, when there had been no out
cry, and no on had called him, is an
other peculiar thing, according to the
police. The reticence of the Klngsley
and their refusal to permit the police
to enter their home thl morning 1 also
regarded as-strange. f
Mrs. W. Q. Kent, living at 10X4 Haw
thome avenue, was at the scene soon
after the vtctlra waa found, and heard
Don't kill me. don't kJU me."
"I saw both Miss Klngsley and her

neither, seemed at all excited and. Mia
Klngsley assured us there was.no rob

lowing him two days; that they had
rented a room next hla . at th St.
Charles hotel and he thought they were
trying f.o rob him; that he went out
alone after them and met them and
that th assault was th result."
On of th women from ' Woodstock
had a pair of scissors and cut the
towels and ropes used to bind Smith.
They , were wound very tightly around
his legs and arma and there was a -rag
in his mouth. The odor of chloroform,
