Forming the Plow Trust.

prospects and that about 150,000,000
would be represented in the organiza
tion when It should be completed. The
recent rise of ten per cent in the price
of plows and the proposed consolida

credit system that has prevailed for

STRIKERS FAIL AT DUQUESNE.
Employes of the Carnegie Plant Did Not
Come Out as Expected.
Pittsburg, Sept. 4. The steel strik
ers who have been trying for a week
to get the employes of the Carnegie
plant at Duquesne to come out, made
a last stand today and failed. A par
ade from McKeesport to meet the
workmen on their way to the mill at
6 A. M' and Induce them to remain
away, had been arranged, but when
the hour arrived there was no march
ers and the parade was abandoned.
The fight had been made In the open
hearth department, but notwithstand
ing a house-to-house canvass by the
strikers last night, only two men re
fused to return to work. Today the
works were in full operation, and the
strikers argue there Is little hope ot
closing the plant.
Dissatisfaction Is increasing at Mc
Keesport. Last Friday about 40 strik
ers returned to work at the seamless
tube plant, and today their force was
considerably Increased. It Is said pre
parations are In progress for resump
tion of work at the National Tube
Works, and that the machinists who
were compelled to cease work through
the strike, have been ordered to re
port for work, for the purpose of get
ting the machinery in order.
The Mononghcla blast furnace de
department of the National Tube
Works is working full, and an effort
Is to be made this week to beat the
output record since the strike started.
At the Demmler tin plate plant, every
thing has been made ready foran early
start. A report was current In Mc
Keesport today that a large number of
Deputy Sheriffs had beea sworn In to
go to Demmler to guard the works at
that place. The deputies have been
ordered to report for duty Wednesday.
FOUL PLAY SUSPECTED.
Four Deaths In One Family Within a Month
Cause an Investigation.
Calumet, Mass., Sept. 3. It Is rather
unusual for four persons In one family
to meet death within a period of one
month. Yet this ocurred in the case
of Mr. and Mrs. Alder P. Davis and
their two daughters, Mrs. Irving Gibbs
and Mrs. Harry Gordon, the latter of
Chicago, the deaths taking place only
a few weeks ago.
Some one started a rumor that these
persons, or at least two of them, did
not die from natural causes. Finally
the District Attorney ordered an inves
tigation, and Joseph Whitney, of the
state police force, was Instructed to
make an autopsy on the bodies of Mrs.
Gordon and Mrs. Gibbs. An under
taker exhumed the bodies and an au
topsy was held in the presence of med
ical experts, Including State Examiner
Faunce, State Detective Whitney, Pro
fessor Whitney and Professor Wood,
of Harvard College. While Professor
Wood had undoubtedly been requested
by Captain Paul Gibbs to attend the
autopsy, he was also present as an
expert employed by the state, and to
his custody was Intrusted the organs
of the two bodies for chemical analy
sis. This, in the minds of many, shows
that the authorities are looking for
The fact that the Jacin House,
which was the home of the Davis fam
ily, was set on fire four or five times
during the interval between the death
of Mrs. Davis and her youngest dau
ghter is considered as having an im
portant bearing on the case.
Whether the bodies of Mr. and Mrs
Davis are to be exhumed depends on
the result of the autopsy held tomor
row. The result will not become
known for several days.
Overawed the Spanish.
Madrid, Sept. 2. While the British
fleet In Spanish waters was maneuver
ing today a torpedo which had been
launched stranded on the shore in
front of La Linea. A party of man-of-warsmen
was sent to recover it, but
was prevented from doing so by a
detachment of Spanish carbineers.
The landing party was strongly rein
forced from the fleet, overawed the
carbineers and took the torpedo.
Will Accept Offer of United States.
London, Sept. 4 A dispatch to a
news agency from Copenhagen today
says the new Danish Ministry has
decided to accept the United States
offer of 16,000,000 kreger for the Dan
ish West Indies, thus announcing as
an accomplished "fact what the dis
patches of the Associated Press said
the Ministry would do.
Revolution in Persia.
Cologne, Sept. 4. A dispatch to the
Cologne Gazette from Teheran, dated
Auguest 31, says:

ment is going on in Persia, fostered

account of the new loan negotiations
with Russia, The Grand Vizier is ac
cused of selling the country and fail
ing to make reforms. Martial law has
been proclaimed in the capital and en
virons. The agitation, it is said, pro
ceeds from the entourage of the Shah,
who frequently finds threatening let
ters upon his writing table.

ITS WORST WJIECIi
GREAT NORTHERN DISASTER AT
Twenty-eight Freight Cars Ran Down Steep
Grade for Sixteen Miles and Crashed Into
the Rear ol a Passenger Train Shock Set
Fire to the Wreckage, Consuming Many
of the Dead and Living Victims.
Spokane, Sept. 3. All reports show
that the wreck on the Great Northern
Railroad, 40 miles east of Kalispell,
Mont., was the worst In the road's his
tory, and one of the most agonizing
In the annals of American railroading.
Thirty-eight lives were lost and 13 per
sons were Injured. Three of the In
jured will surely die, and the others
were seriously hurt.
By strenuous and heroic effort 15 ol
the bodies were taken from the wreck
ed cars before the flames reached
them. All the other victims were cre
mated, including the bodies of Super
intendent P. T. Downs and his son, T.
There is a severe grade near the
scene of the wreck. Two engines had
taken a train of 28 freight cars up this
grade and drawn off to take water.
While doing this the 28 cars started,
down the grade. The runaway train
dashed down the grade at frightful
speed and crashed Into the rear of
west-bound passenger No. 3 near the
siding at Nyack. Superintendent
Downs' private car was attached to the
passenger and next to it was a day
coach filled with railroad laborers
from Duluth. As the runaway train
sped by the switch It struck a caboose
and day coach on the siding, wrecked
them, and the fire started from the
oil lamps in the caboose. The point
where the wild train crashed Into the
passenger was several hundred feet
away and It was two and a half hours
before the flames reached the main
wreck. Meanwhile frantic efforts were
made to take out the dead and Injured
The wreck was piled high and wedged
Into almost hopeless confusion, and In
spite of superhuman efforts the flames
burned their way to the wrecked cars
before the work was completed. J. H.
Blair, colored cook in Mr. Downs' car,
was taken out alive but died in a few
minutes. It was impossible to get at
the bodies of Superintendent Downg
and his son.
Made a Mile a Minute.
The runaway tore down the hill at
lightning speed, rounding the most
sharp curves at a speed of 70 miles an
hour, where regular trains crawl along.
With a roar it burst around the curve
and what is most remarkable jumped
a split switch, which would have
turned it to the sidetrack and
crashed Into the passenger.
There was neither time nor
opportunity for escape. Mr. Downs'
car and that of the laborers was
smashed Into kindling wood, the occu
pants of the private car meeting In
stant death. The debris and shingles
and lumber of freight burned like tin
der. The train crew was forced back
from Its work of rescue. One man
penetrated as far as the private car
where he said he saw the dead bodies
of Mr. Downs and his son, and from
where he dragged the corpse of the
cook. , In the laborers' car many of the
46 occupants were so penned in that
they could not be reached and burned
to death before the eyes of the spec
tators. The fire was so fierce that the
rear sleeper could not bo saved,
though It had not left the track. Its
occupants were hurried Into forward
cars, which were pulled ahead out of
reach of the fire. The flames extend
ed to the brush alongside the track
and burned down the telegraph poles
A wire break followed, which, with a
storm, greatly retarded telegraphic
news of the wreck. 1
TO CLOSE BUTCHER SHOPS.
New York Butchers Will See That the Sunday
Law Is Strictly Enforced.
ttew York, Sept. 3. The butchers
of New York are determined that the
new state law prohibiting the sale or
delivery of meats Sunday shall be en
forced. To this end an army of 2700
jnen, all opposed to Sunday labor and
all eager to aid In carrying out the
provisions of the law, will patrol the
city tomorrow. It will be the largest
army ever organized in any city for
such a purpose and will be under the
direction of the Benchman's Assocla
tion of Retail Butchers, comprising 36,
000 men, ' employed In butcher shops
In this city. The butchers came to the
conclusion that the most effective
means they could adopt to compel the
stoppage of the sale and delivery of
meat Sundays was to create a legal
vigilance committee of their own. The
city has been divided into districts and
captains appointed in each.

West Virginia School Give Them Thorough
and Practical Training.
Washington, Sept. 3. A study of the
results that have been attained at tha
Indian school at Hampton, Va giveB
a fair Idea of what modern Indian edu
cation will accomplish when conduct
ed under the most favorable circum
stances. The Hampton school Is not
primarily an Indian school, but rather
one conducted In the Interests of the
colored race. Special arrangement
was made by the Indian Office, through
the sanction of Congress, whereby not
to exceed 120 Indians are educated at
this school every year, and for which
Congress appropriates $20,040. A study
of the report of the superintendent of
the school for the past year, Insofar
as It applies to the Indian UudenLs, Is
rather Interesting. Among other facts
brought out are the follorluj:
There were at the Hampton s :hool
last year 119 Indians 54 girls and 65
boys. They were chosen from 21 dif
ferent tribes, the Oneldas of Wiscon
sin and the Sioux of North and South
Dakota predominating. A plan has
lately been devised to encourage the
Indians to keep cows and study prac
tical dairying. A number have been
taking special training in the care of
cattle and the making of butter and
There will go from the Hampton
school to the Oneida resorvatlon with
in the next year a number of boys and
girls who have definite plans as to
what they will endeavor to accomplish.
The Hampton Institute pursues similar
plans with all Indians, adapting the
work of the school to the special condi
tions at their respective homes.
As far as possible Hampton Is made
a miniature world where the young
people learn to deal with problems
similar to those which they will meet
In the outside world. Work In the va
rious trades Is made more and more
a part of each boy's course. The grad
uating class In carpentry has taken
for half a year one-half a day each
week at bricklaying, painting and tin
smithing; four hours at woodturnlng;
six hours at designing small houses;
and the remainder of each week is
spent at the carpenter bench. The
shoe department made 385 pairs of
shoes; the harness department fixed
56 sets of harness;; the bricklayers
have laid 450,000 brick, besides making
all repairs to brickwork and plastering
on the grounds. The machine shop
turned out 179 gears, machined 700
trucks, and did considerable work for
the electric light and power plant of
Hampton City, besides building a six
horse power vertical engine. The
woodworking machine shop has built
and sold 727 trucks; the tailor shop
made 302 uniforms. The manual train
ing department - gives instruction to
every student in the school. No boy
graduates from Hampton without hav
ing worked In wood, iron and sheet
metal, besides having taken a course
in agriculture; no girl graduates with
out having received instruction in
woodwork, enabling her to mend and
make small furniture, or without hav
ing been taught to cook and serve
meals and to make her own dresses
and underclothing. All pupils receiv
ed Instruction In agriculture the past
year. The head of the department
There are three courses In cooking
at Hampton an elementary one In
home cooking for girls who are not
likely to go very far In the school; a
more advanced class, and the normal
course for post-graduate students Who
Intend to become teachers of cooking.
Besides the routine of the cooking
classes, the girls are taught to care for
the dining room, to set a table proper
ly and wait on the table.
In the sewing department, the stu
dents show real enthusiasm, and a
spirit of co-operation that is striking.
In addition to" the regular sewing
courses, classes In basketry and lace
making were conducted during the
past year. The head of the depart
ment considers that as a training for
the hand and eye, basketry Is In some
respects superior to sewing, because
inacurate or slovenly work can readily
The study of mathematics is one of
practical character. Each student
keeps a cash book, showing what the
school owes him for work, what he
owes the school for board, etc., and
each month an account Is rendered by
the student to the treasurer's office.
These two statemnts should agree,
and if they do not, means are taken
to discover on which side the error
occurs. Articles are manufactured by
the students, and the cost of materials,
time, etc., Is kept of record. Details
for memorandums concerning trans
actions on the farm, in the workshops,
in the commissary and kitchen are
sent in for the classes to put In proper
shape. In this way the Indians aro
taught to make practical application
of their mathematical education.
Thorough Instruction in vocal music
is given to the pupils.

Spark Fell Into the Powder.
Altona, Pa., Sept. 3. At Munson, a
mining town north of this city, Emanu
el Rinus, a German miner, was empty
ing powder from one cask Into another
at his home, when a spark fell from
his pipe into the powder. The explo
sion which followed wrecked the house
