WORDEN IS THE MAN
Arrested for Wring tie Train at
GOMPERS IS STILL CONSERVATIVE
John Sherburn Tells How the bridge
Was Destroyed at Sacramento
and Who Did It.
The Bridge Tragedy.
Sacramento, July 12. A startling
story was told by John Sherburn, a boy.
He is the son of Major Sherburn, who is
well known here. According to his con
fession, which' is now in the hands of
the proper' authorities, S. D. Worden,
who is under arrest for ditching the
overland train yesterday, which resulted
in the death of Engineer Clark and three
soldiers, approached him yesterday
mnrm'no and asked him if he would
drive him and several friends to Yolo
county. Sherburn accepted the offer,
and a few minutes later four strikers
drove up in a three-seated rig. Worden
and Sherburn jumped into the wagon,
and the latter was told to drive to Yolo
county. After crossing the bridge Sher
' barn was ordered to drive along the road
leading to the scene pf yesterday's
wreck. When they reached the latter
place Sherburn was ordered to alight
from the wagon, and told by Worden to
step into the caboose of a freight train,
which was standing close by. The boy
obeyed, but from a window in the
caboose - he saw Worden and his com
panions tatce irom an empty car, wnicn
was attached to the freight train, a rifle,
'several boxes of cartridges, a monkey-
. wrench and a crowbar. The articles
were placed in the wagon and Sherburn,
after , being told to come out of the
caboose, was ordered to drive to Davis
ville. -When some diitance from the
latter place, the articles were taken from
the wagon and Worden and the con
spirators started up the track, after tell
ing the boy to remain in charge of the
team. After waiting for some time the
friends returned and ordered Sherburn
to drive to Woodland. During the trip
the boy heard Worden remark with a
fiendish grin :
"I used to fire with that and
before manv minutes his soul will be
When Woodland was reached, the
murderers, with the exception of Wor
den, alighted and walked up the road.
The latter remained in the wagon and
ordered Sherburn to drive back to the
city. It was not until the two-mile
trestle was reached that Sherburn real'
ized what had happened. He silently
surveyed the wrecked' train, but was
afraid to question Worden, as he
thought he might kill him. When the
Yolo bridge was reached Worden alighted
from the wagon and ordered Sherburn
to return the team to the stable. Con
vinced that Worden and his friends
were responsible for the ditching of the
train, he immediately notified the
authorities. Worden and several other
strikers were then arrested for murder.
This afternoon Sherburn was taken to
the county jail and positively identified
Worden. He was unable to recognize
the other prisoners. It is expected that
more arrests will be" made tonight. It
is known at least eeven men are respon
sible for the wreck.
Six Practical Suggestions.
Chicago, July 12. The strike situa
tion throughout the country today was,
in general, one of quietness. The cen
tral point of interest has been the meet
ing of the labor leaders with President
Go no per a, of the Federation of labor, at
the labor headquarters in the city. It is
admitted that the action of that body,
if taken unanimously, will have a
marked effect on theituation, and per
sons well informed as to the predilictions
of the persons composing it express the
opinion that unanimous action by it,
except jn the direction of quieting the
present agitation or turning it into
other channels, is unlikely. It is known
that several suggestions are being con
sidered by the leaders. Among them
are the following :
, First, that the striking Pullman em
ployes, on high patriotic 'grounds ap
peal to President iDebs to declare the
strike off by reason of the infinite dam
r .-',' Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report
age which ia being done to the business
of the country.
Second, that the leaders unite in an
appeal to the public to quit patronizing
Pall man sleeping care, drawing-room
Third, that President Cleveland be re
quested to appoint a committee to in
vestigate the strike and the causes
which led op to it, in expectation that
the report of such commission would
justify the action taken by the strik
ers and free them from the charges of
rioting and disorder.
Fourth, that immediate efforts be
made to secure the impeachment of At
torney General Olney.
Fifth, that an effort be made to secure
the passage of a compulsory arbitration
law by congress.
Sixth, that complaints be lodged look
ing to the indictment of the railway
man agers for conspiracy to obstrnct the
movement of the United States mails
by refusing to run mail' cars except in
connection with Pullman -
At noon today the union machinists
threw down their tools and joined in the
general sympathetic strike, which was
inaugurated yesterday. As is usual in
such cases, the strike affects the large
shops far more than the smaller ones,
where only a few men are employed.
Promptly at 12 o'clock the 700 men em
ployed by Fraser & Chalmers laid down
their tools and went on a strike.- Be
fore doing so, they had notified Presi
dent W. J. Chalmers of their intention,
and held a conference, wherein the men
stated their position. They iiaid they
had no complaint against the company,
nor any grievances of any kind, but had
been ordered to strike out of sympathy,
and would do so to show their senti
ments. Mr. Chalmers made a speech,
in which he said he hoped that the
strike would cause no hard feeling be
tween the company and its employes,
and with a handshake and well wishes
all around, the men left, and the big
shop, which a few minutes - before had
been all bustle and conf uBion, was silent.
Over 100 men employed by the Gates
Iron Company walked out at the same
hour, and a number of other shops were
A SAD MISNOMER.
The Term "Old Staid" Jit Almost Always
I lately heard an amusing new defini
tion to the term "old maid," which
was held to apply, not to elderly spin
sters in general, but only to such as
had never had a chance of changing
their condition; those who "would not
when they could," or whose course of
true love has run rough, receiving the
more ' respectful title of "maiden
ladies." The idea emanates from a
masculine brain, but the difficulty of
ascertaining which designation ap
plies in individual cases is a problem
which the superior male intellect has
not condescended to solve, says the
Ladies' Pictorial. '
Are old maids under this definition
to be expected to wear some particular
form of cap, or have their hat cut in
a special fashion, or add the letters
"O. M." to their visiting cards? I am
convinced that there are very few
women indeed whose experience has
failed to include a love affair of some
kind, and of these few only a small
minority would acknowledge the fact.
A more correct idea of the term, it
seems to me, and one which takes away
its old-fashioned sting, is that it de
scribes a certain type of woman irre
spective of her condition in life. " The
prim, narrow-minded person who fusses
over trifles, who would leave matters
of the most paramount duty or engross
ing interest in order to put tidy a
drawer or sew on a button; who goes
all her life in fear of Mrs. Grundy, and
would leave any kind action undone,
or kind word unsaid, if it. ran the
slightest risk of offending that poten
tate, would be old-maidish in spite of
any number of matrimonial ventures;
while, on the other hand, there are
plenty of liberal-minded, youthful
hearted old misses to whom the epithet
is so obviously unsuitable that no one
thinks of applying it.
