Want a Shorter Day.
With the first of April the federated
trainmen and operators on tho Lehigh
Valley railroad will in nH probability
ask for a shorter day. Since tho em
ployes of the road seceded from the
brotherhoods of the United States,
which was three weeks ago, three
meetings have been held and all wete
well attended by the representatives of
the men. The last meeting to be held
was at Sayrc on Sunday afternoon. At
this meeting leports fiom the several
branches of the Lehigh Valley were
read and returns show that there are
employes now embracing tho union who
prior to the federation never1 had any
intention of doing so.
The men employed on the Wyoming
side are going to ask for a shorter day,
probably a ten or eleven-hour day,
at the same pay as they now receive.
During next month there will be a con
vention of the employes and demands
will he made to the ofllcials of the com
pany. Tho railroaders state that they per
form hard work and have to work
twelve hours per day for wages that
other workmen must work only ten
hours for, and in many instances few
er. As the union now stands it is com
posed of employes of the road only, and
when the ofllcials of the road treat with
the committee they are talking to em
ployes only, as is tho case when the
men on the Pcnnsy make any demands.
Will Build Pence.
A large board fence is being erected
nround the entire plot that surrounds
the South AVilkes-Barre colliery of the
Lehigh and "Wilkes-Barre Coal com
pany. This Is done because a series of petty
fires, presumably of incendiary origin,
have been discovered recently in old
shanties in close proximity to tho
bleaker. The watchmen will have a
better opportunity to observe prowlers
when the fence is erected, it costs
something to build a fence of this kind,
ns the distance around is over a mile.

DRAMATIC POINT IN
THE PATRICK CASE
Valot Jones Relates tho Incidents of
the Murder of William.
By IMIiulte Wire from the Associated Frcs.
New York, Feb. 20. A very dramatic
point in the (rial of Lawyer Albert T.
Patrick for the murdoi of the Texas
mllllonalie, "William Marsh Rice, was
reached this afternoon. Char'" F.
Jones, tho valet, had been 1 elating tho
circumstances leading up to the some
what sudden death of Mr. Rico In
September. Then plunging at once Into
the details he held the attention of the
audience to the end of his recital. Ficed
of minor points, his story follows:
In August Patrick grew impatient.
Mr. Rice though nn Invalid, was living
too long to suit the lawyer's pui poses.
Patrick said he would come to the
house and kill him himself If necessary.
He suggested chloroform and Jones
said he would get some.
The idea of chloroform as a means
was suggested by a magazine article.
It was determined upon after Jones
talked with a physician who said a
person whoso heart was affected, as
was Mr. Rice's could be most easily
killed with it, and that little trace of
the drug would bo left. Jones got n.
two ounce vial of It by writing to his
brother in Texas,
Jones then branched off into the al
leged plan to weaken the al
ready sick old man. This was by giv
ing him mercury and iron pills. Tho
pills brought on debilitating diarrhoea.
Then unwittingly a friend brought Mr.
Rice a present of bananas. Of these
the old man ate nine. The fruit made
him exceedingly 111 and yet the weak
ening doses of mercury were kept up.
By Saturday, being the eighth day of
the last Illness, Mr. Rice became delir
ious. This testimony brought the
events up to Sundaj-, the day of death.
and the witness had said that during
these ten days of illness he had kept
Patrick informed of the details per
sonally and by telephone.
William Marsh Rice's quick death,
declared the witness, was decided at a
conference between Patrick and Jones
held Saturday night. Jones had told
the lawyer of the arrival of a draft
of $23,000. Patrick toltVJiim it was time
to apply the chloroform now that tho
draft had come and Captain Baker was
coming, or they would lose all. Jones
Jones here told his story of the ac
tual killing. He made a cone of a tow
el in the small end of which was a
chlorororm-soaked sponge. Creeping
into the room where Mr. Rice lay
sleeping he quickly covered the sleep
er's face with the large end of the
cone. Jones rushed out of the room.
In half an hour he came back. Ho re
moved the cone. Mr. Rice was dead.
Jones swore he telephoned to Patrick
"Mr. Rice is very 111," the agiced sig
nal between the two of death. Jones'
story of the end was concluded by the
statement that Patrick came to the
house and removed' all of Mr. Rice's

AVnrren, Pn,, Feb. 20. Warren capit
ulated today to tho invading hosts,
and tonight the town Ih filled with
earnest, singing, enthusiastic, delegates
to the thirty-fourth state convention of
tho Young lien's Christian association.
It Is essentially a convention of young
men and promises to bo one of the most
Interesting ever held. It Is expected
that six hundred delegates and others
will bo present, and the accommoda
tions tire taxed to the straining point.
The opening session was held in the
association building at 3 o'clock, pre
sided over by James Slittnd, a promin
ent Lancaster merchant. Epigram
matic bits of wisdom flowed from a
largo number of tho delegates, and
these officers wore elected:
President, J. Y. Little, Erie: vice
presidents, D. I, Rail, AVarren; C. "Wal

tho slnte convention."
At 5.30 o'clock the women's auxiliary

and the scene was one of rare bril
liancy. D. C. Jllchener, of New Yorfc,
spoke on "The Association Man What
Manner of Man Ought He to Be?" The
idea advanced was that personal work
should prevail, and that men enter tho
association for wlmt they could put
Into it, and not what tlfey could gut
out. Itev. J. W. Smith, D. D., of AVar
ren, spoke briefly, and a mighty chorus
joining in the doxology, adjourned the

He declared that it was the helghth

Mr. Sherman opposed the amend

commissioner of Indian affairs the
statement 'that education on the reser
vations was not productive of advance
ment and that education far from tho
influence of the tribes had more than
met the highest expectations.' After
