Burgess, was granted a divorce from
Lemuel Burgess by Judge Fraser in the
circuit court . yesterday afternoon on
the grounds of cruelty and drunken
ness. The aase waa tried before the
judge "April S6, but the evidence pre
sented at the -trial was held to be In
sufficient to warrant a decree.
Depositions from John V. Kelsey and
Oscar Presley of WeatfalL Oregon, cor
roboratlng the testimony , given at the
trial were filed yesterday, and Judge
Fraser signed the decree. It was shown
that Burgess had acaulred the habit of
drinking and while intoxicated could
not atay away from the gambling- tables.
According to the testimony Burgess
lost' several thousand dollars gambling
while drunk. The couple were married
at The Dallea In September, 189S. .

There la no doubt that the attitude of
some of the papers haa much to do with
the determination of the men to strike.
They have been misled into believing
that If they had but atood firm in their
demands, Calhoun would yield, although
It was well known from the start that
Calhoun would fight until tha bitter
end. If the men had realised this fact
which, all newspaper . men knew, the
trouble might have been averted.
The telephone company received in
formation last night that there la grave
danger that the atrlke will spread to all
other California cities and that the op

The attitude of the company is calcu
