"The houso of lords, Mr. Gladstone

must be ended because it cannot
be mended. My conviction is that this
will be the keynote of the twentieth
century. The work of Neal Dow has
led to this. He has fought a good
fifbt, and even at 00 years of agi , he
has not run his course. The truth
that Maine has been transformed and

The former was almost instantly killed,
while Bnckney sustained very severe
injuries. The firemen when they ar

Denver, Col. , June 8.
OETECTIVES assisted Shorill Bow
ers today in a search for John
Calderwood, president of the
Victor Minors' union, who came
up from Colorado Springs with Gover
nor Waite at an eariy hnnr this morn
ing. When the party arrived, Calder
wood was taken into a carriage with
the governor aud conveyed to a seclud
ed plane, which no one but the gover
nor's party knows. Sheriff Bowers ar
rived at daylight with a warrant tor
Calderwood's arrest upon the charge of
Inciting to riot. He had not been ar
rested at Colorado Springs beoause
then he was the governor's guest.
Detectives shadowed Governor Waite
all day in tho hope that they might,
find their man, but at night Sheriff
Dowers had to return without the head
official of the miners, now in a bellig
rant attitude. About the governor's
office the Populists there declared that
the arrest of Calderwood would only
add fuel to the hatred of the miners
and would make the contest all the
more bloodthirsty. Cniderwood came
under a flag of truce, thoy declare, and
should not be subjected to arrest. But
the civil authorities look upon the man
not as a belligerent but as an accom
plice In a conspiracy that has already
resulted in highway robbery, arson, de
struction of property and in murder.
Governor Waite said today that ho
hail taken no official action and it is
not believed that he will declare mar
tial law, a point which is declared to
bo illegal. Strong pressure has steadily
been brought to boar upon him to get
him to agree to back up Sheriff Bowers

oppose their march or give them any
work to do. Scattered on and off the
track, however, were counted twenty
six strikers to whom Sheriff Letnibg
read tho restraining order issued ut
Washington last Tnnrsday by Judge

have been loading the strikers iu their
lawless interference with the proporty

with riotons conspiracy and contempt
of Judge Heffer's mandate. .
Immediately after the arrival of the
troops the officials of tho Baltimore
