arrival of tho steamship City of Mex

to take them to places of safety.
Huerta insisted for a long time that
ho would not embark until his follow

were signs of mutiny, however, among
tlie federal troops in Puerto Mexico,
two officers were actually arrested for
threatening the ex-president 's life and

League Magnates Weaken and Johnson,
Who Was Yesterday a Lion, la a

Now York, July 21. The threatened
Btrike of American and National league
baseball players was believed to have
been averted today by the action of a
meeting here or American league inag
nats, called by President Johnson to
formulate plans to fight the demands
of the Players' Fraternity.
Contrary to the warlike utterances of
Johnson before the magnates assembled,
the meeting authorized a re-sale of In
fiblder Clarence O. Kraft, around whom
the storm centered, to the Newark In
ternational league club at a valuation
placed on his services by the Nashville
southern Association club, whose claim
was upheld by the national commis

When informed of the action of the
American magnates in the Kraft case,
President Fultz, of the Players' Frater

simply to give him a square deal."

Johnson Cools Off.
President Ban Johnson did a rightabout-face,
changing front completely
from hi3 belligerent attitude earlier in
the day. He sought to. belittle the idea
of a strike.
"I don't think there will be any
strike," Johnson said. "There is noth

case is a matter for the National league
to settle now."

After the meeting adjourned it was

of whom are members of the advisory

Ship Windber Is Caught in the
Sulphurous Clouds on
Alaskan Coast
Weird Experience as the Ship
Feels Its Way to Safety
Through the Smoke
Bellingham, Wash., July 21. A weird
story of how the steamship Wiudbor,
of tho Pacific American Fisheries fleet,
crept through darkest night of the aft
ernoon of July 6, while the compass
hand spun around, was told by Captain
Jackson today after the Windber''s
arrival in port.
Mount I'avlof, the Alaskan volcano,

less than 30 miles distant, and although
Captain Jackson sent the Winber full

Moyer In Publio Speech Accuses Ray
wood of Starting Tremble In Butte,
Because He 'Could Not Control
Denver, Colo., July 21. An open
breach between William D. Haywood,
former secretary-treasurer, and Charles
II. Moyer, president of the Western
Federation of Miners, was proclaimed
today by Moyer in his opening address
before the annual convention of that
organization here.
Moyer declared that Haywood and
others formerly prominent in the federa
tion were responsible for the dissentions
at Butte, resulting in the disruptions of
the miners union there and the dyna
miting of union hall, in which one man
was killed and several injured.
Failing to gain control of the nation
al organization at its twentieth conven
tion, Moyer said this clique planned to
disrupt the federation.
Besides Haywood, he named Phil
Christian, J. E. Bradley, Frank Curran,
Joseph Shannon and 1 nomas Campbell.
Moyer assorted that these men con
ducted a campaign against the national
officers of the federation and precipi
tated the demonstrations which culmin
ated in the Butte dyuamitings. He
recommended the re-organization of the
Butte local union and the elimination
of the Industrial Workers of the World
from membership.
Moyer said that many staunch union
men in Butte believe that the griev
ances of the Moyer faction, which wai
ousted during the upheaval iu that city,
were just.
Moyer said he did not approve of tho
assessments levied by the federation to
assist the Michigan strikers, but he in
sisted that the real trouble was based
on stories startod by the Industrial
Workers that this money had not
reached the strikers in Michigan, but
had gone instead to buy palatial homes
and automobiles for the national of
ficers of the federation. .Ho suggested
that the method of lovvin assessments
should be altered so that the members
themselves and not the directors should
authorize the collection of assessments,
In conclusion, Moyer commented fav
orably on the proposal to merge the
western f ederation of Miners and the
United Mine Workers Of America.

Vancouver, B. C, July 21. The cruis

harbor at 8:30 o'clock this morning aft
er encircling tho Komagata Maru, the
Hindu prison ship, in a spectacular man
ner and drawing every son of India

canic language from Councilman Jones

without nay and voting down the reso
lution to add two policemon to the reg
ular force. The resolution to add two
new police to the regular force was
introduced by Councilman Von Kschen.
In nutting the motion he simply stated
that the lives and property of Unlem
citizens were jeopardised by the lack
of police and that two more should bo
edded. No one spoke against it, but
when the motion was put only Von
Eschen, Constable, Hatch and Presnall
voted for it. Jones, Minton, McClel
land, Brown, Hoover and McCrnckcn
voted against it. Councilman Cum
mings, who is in the chair in the ab
sence of Mayor Ntceves, did not vote
though he favored tho measure.
Pay for the Pumper.
The report of the fire and water
committee stating that tho now Ameri
can La France auto pumpor had ful

was given $25. Forty sewer claims
were paid and tho regular monthly
payroll for Juno approved. The report
of the committee permitting tho use
of electric fans in place of screen doors
was adopted.
The Vow l'ark fire company, a vol
unteor fire company, was disbanded
and the apparatus turned ovor to tho

were given their exemptions and the

that as it waB four years since a voto

for Borne discussion and a petition ask

opposed the installation of the hitch
rack, stating tliut while it might be a
good thing for some people who only
stayed in town a few minutes that tho
practice was often abused and that ho
had seen horses standing in the rain
all day mnny times. It was said that
the racks would be taken down when

"The division of tho council on the

Caillaux Bares the Story of

Editor, Causing Death
Paris, July 21. Joseph Caillaux, a
former promior, more recently minis-,
ter of finance and generally considered
one of the most brilliant men of his
generation in France, was the star wit- -ness
at today's session of the trial of
his wife, Mine. Honriette Caillaux, for
the killing of Editor Gaston Caunette
of "Lo Figaro."
Next in importance to the testimony
of Caillaux was the reading of a depo
sition from President Puinuare himself,
deuling with incidents which led up to
tho shooting and ending dramatically
with a description of the president's
efforts to prevent a tragedy at the
identical time that "lime, Caillaux
was entering the reception room at
' Le Figaro'."
Caillaux was first married, he told
the court, in 1908 to Mmo. Gueydnn,
divorced wife of a Paris tax collector.
Ho said the marriage was not happy,
but would not tell why, on the ground '
that his past troubles bad no bearing

In any event, matters rescued a cri- -
sis in VMS. Caillaux and his then wife '
were at Mnmers at the time. A pack- .
ngo of lotters had been purloined from
the husband's desk during the night.
They wcro from Caillaux to his pres
ent wifo, now on trial for the killing
of Calmotte. Caillaux offered his first
wifo the choice of a divorce or a re
conciliation but Insisted on the return
of tho letters in either case.
Tho wifo chose the reconciliation.
Accordingly, November 5, 1909, in the -Caillaux
homo in Paris, in the presence
of Privat Doschanel, general secretary
to the minister of finance, the letters
wcro burnod, as were a list of the hus
band 's grievances against Mme. Cail
laux. Before this, however, Caillaux had
asked, In Deschnnel's presence, if his
wifo had mado' cither photograph or
copy of the purloined letters. She
swore she had not.
"Deschanel," said Caillaux on the
witness stand, "was my confidnnto
during this entire period of my life
and ho will tell you that I was never
moro sincere than when I brought about
thnt reconciliation. At that moment
I put out of my life all thoughts but
those of my wife and my resolutions
remained unaltered until somo time la
ter, when I realized that it wns im
possible for us to remain together." ;
The couple were divorced in March.

In October of the 'sumo year, when
Caillaux wus premier, his chief of cab

that his divorced wife hud offered to
a newspaper man named Vorvoort cer

vourt in turn had discussed the matter
with Desclaux and that ha had given

character. I eun't believe there would
be a newspaper maa capable of such
a thing."
Desclaux replied that neither Ver

Journul," nor Pierro Mortier of "Oil
Bias" would permit anyone even to
suggest that they publish such mat
ter. "A few weeks after this incident,"
continued Caillaux, speaking from the
