By Exclusive Wire from The Associated Press.
Shenandoah, Aug. 8. A platoon of
the Governor's Troop of cavalry went
to Turkey Run Hill today on an er
land of mercy and rescued a small
family from the violence of the neigh
borns. There had been petty actH of
violence from that teriltory nearly
every day for a week. Today Briga
dier General Gobln received a pathetic
letter from the wife of a non-union
workman who Is employed In the Gil
berton colliery of the Reading com
pany, in which she tells of the treat
ment accorded her by strikers in that
vicinity. Among other things, she said
rocks had been tin own through the
windows at night, one of them nearly
striking her sleeping child; the' house
damaged, and while she was out
doors one night a bullet was fired at
her. She also said that crowds gath
ered around the house, hooted and
Jeered at her and the children and
hung crape on the door. Her husband,
phe concluded, was compelled to stay
In the mines In order to earn money
to keep them from starving and as he
could not leave his work, she asked the
commanding officer of the troops here
to protect her. Turkey Run II1I1 has
no police protection and General Gobln
decided to help the woman. He learned
that she was not In the best of health,
nnd it was decided that she had better
be taken from the place to the Potts
vllel hospital. To carry this out, the
general ordered a platoon of cavalry
to make a demonstration In that sec
tion, and, while there, to escort the
woman and children to vthe railroad
station. This was done. The troops
rode all over the territory and found
that the population, which Is made up
of many foreigners, was not in the
best frame of mind.
The soldiers weie hooted nnd jeered
nnd called uncomplimentary names.
Only one stone was thrown at the
horsemen, and this was done by some
one In a crowd on a high ridge, out of
reach of the soldiers. The cavalry men
stopped their horses and the crowd
Held for Beddall's Death.
The two Lithuanians who were yes
terday held repsonsible for the death
of Joseph Bcddall In the riots of last
week, were today committed without
bail to the county jail at Pottsvllle, on
the churgOv-of murder. Another Lith
uanian, charged with rioting, was re
leased on $2,000 bail. It Is understood
that a large number of arrests will be
made and more charges of murder will
be brought. The police officials aie
having much difficulty In ferreting out
the participants In the llots. The for
eigners are standing together and are
not volunteering any Information. It
was feared that an attempt would be
made to rescue the two Lithuanians
held for murder and the other charged
with rioting from the little lockup
eaily this morning. In consequence, a
company of soldiers on guard duty,
close at hand, kept in readiness to
march. Extra guards are on duty at

There was little of Interest In the

Two Men and a Team of Horses
Are Annihilated by Glycerine
Near Bradford. ,
By Exclusive Wire from The Awoclatod Press.
Bradford, Pa., Aug. 8. A terrific ex
plosion today at Irvlnes mills, seven
miles from this place, shook the earth
over a wide radius and annihilated two
human beings. A team of horses, a
wagon and forty 10-quart cans of glyc
erine went up also in the flash of Hie,
and clouds of smoke that accompanied
tho explosion. Joseph Gllson, aged 44
years, a resident of Bradford, and Os
car Beigvall, tged 17 years, an office
boy employed by the Pennsylvania Tor
pedo company, were the human victims.
Gllson and Bergvall were taking a loud

zine In Rice Brook to Olean.
It is supposed a wheel of the wagon
diopped into a rut of the road, causing
the jar which brought on tire explosion.
Nothing was left of the outfit but a
small portion of one horse.

THE PROGRAMME AS
Modification of the Offices Are Made
to Save the King nnd the Aged
Dean of Westminster Fatigue Re
cognition to Be Performed Once In
stead of Four Times.
By Exclusive Wire from The Associated Press.
London, Aug. 8. A number of Im
portant changes In the coronation pro
gramme were announced today. The
recognition, in which the king Is pre
sented to the people by tho Archbishop
of Canterbury as the "undoubted king
of the realm," will be performed but
once Instead of four times. The litany
which was to have followed the recog
nition will not be said, the sermon will
be omitted and the Te Deum, which
was placed In the order of the service
nfter the presenting of the Bible, will
not be given at that time, but will be
sung during the recess, at the close of
the coronation office, when the king
visits St. Edward's chapel.
Owing to the age of the Very Rev.
George Granville Bradley, the dean of
Westminster, who Is 81 years old, the
king has relieved him of the duty of
placing the regalia on the altar, and
this service will be performed by Canon
Duckworth, but the dean will present
the crown to the archbishop for the act
of coronation and will present the
communion cup to the king.
Canon Duckworth will lay the am
pulla and spoon on the altar, will place
upon his majesty the coloblum sindonis
and the supertunlca, or the close pall
of cloth of gold, will deliver the spurs
to the lord great chamberlain, will take
the king's sword from the altar and
hand It to his majesty, will put upon
the king the urnillla and Imperial man
tle, will take the orb with the cross
from the altar and deliver It to the
archbishop for presentation to the king
and will receive the orb from the king,
to be laid on the altar.

Large crowds gathered on the route
to and fiom the palace and warmly

An Every Day Aspect.
With the coronation less thari a day
distant London njalntalns Its every day
aspect. It is true that the short route
of the procession is decorated at some
points more brilliantly than before, but
the loute is a mere speck In the great
aiea of the city and even on the streets
to be traversed by the procession there
were few sightseers. The main thor
oughfaies, miles of which were guy
with Hugs and bunting In June are now
stripped except for the Illumination fix
tures, which were allowed to lemaln In
place. Westminster is the center of
what little activity London displays.
The chief stands in the vicinity of St.
Murgarets have been re-decorated and
Piccadilly refurnished with crimson
Venetian masts, supporting trophies and
flags joined by streamers of gay bunt
ing. The same general scheme prevails
,ln Pall Mall. Many club stands have
dlsappeai ed. The 'private stands, re
coveied In crimson, are doing a fair
business, prices for seuts running from
$10 to $50 with the cheaper classes sold
out, Westminster Abbey today re
ceived the precious regullu, which was
taken under a strong guard from the
tower, and also u, wealth of gold und
silver plate from Buckingham Palace,
all of which were guarded today by a
strong detachment of life guards. De
spite the announced departure of all
tho special embassies the government
bus been somewhat embarrassed to find
a few of these guests still on hand.
While Witeluw Held, tho special Ameri
can umbassndor announced the formal
dissolution of his embassy, General
Wilson, E. L. Baylies and J. Pierpont
Morgan, jr., aie now In London, and
tho authorities who were decidedly
doubtful us to whether they should
recognize their presence, finally settled
tho matter by sending all of them tic
kets to tho Abbey, but emphasizing the
fact that the courtesy wus extended

formal letter from the war office asking
It to loan an American flag to decorate
a balcony at the war office. The flug
wus sent, and today It flew from tho
balcony, Sir Thomas Llptoii received a
special Invitation to the Abbey us tho
guest of the king.
The first section of the procession to
the Abbey will start from Buckingham
Palace at 10.30 o'clock, and will consist
of dress carriages and pairs, contain
ing members of the roynl family, head
ed by trumpeters, the royal harseguards
band, the first life guards and the royal
horse guards. After the foregoing will
come the Prlnco of Wales procession,
which will start from York house at
The advance guard will consist of a
detachment of the royal horse guards,
followed by two currlages containing
official members of the Prince und
Princess of Wales' household, the first
troop of the royal horse guards, tho
carriage of the Prince and Princess of
Wales and the second troop of the roy
al horse guards.
The king's procession will leave
Buckingham Palace at 11 o'clock, es
corted by the royal horse guards, the
king's bargemaster and twelve water
men. Tho carriages will ttien follow.
The carriages arc followed 'by the
personal staff to the commander In
chief, Lord Roberts, mounted; and
aides do camp to the king, consisting of
ten colonels of volunteer regiments,
seven colonels of yeomanry regiments,
and nine colonels of militia regiments.
Nearly all the above aides are members

The Attorney General Tells
of the Atlantic City
By Exclusive Wire from The Associated Preen.
Oyster Bay, N. Y., Aug. 8. Attorney
General Knox today confirmed the re
port that he had had a personal diffi
culty with a party of men In Atlantic
City last Wednesday night.
"It was one of those disagreeable In
cidents," said he, "that sometimes oc
cur in a restaurant or other public
places. Accompanied by Mrs. Knox,
my daughter and two or three friends,
including District Attorney Youngs, of
Pittsburg, I was dining in the restaur
ant of the Garden hotel. A party of
men, none of whom I knew, seated
themselves at an adjoining table. Their
conduct was unseemly and boisterous.
They talked loudly, und their com
ments upon members of my party and
upon me were Insulting, to put It very
"In the circumstance, accompanied as
I wus by the ladles, I could not resent
their actions or their words at that
time. They evidently were seeking
trouble, so, without attrnctlng any
more attention than possible, I got my
party out of the restaurant:"
"Then I returned" continued Mr."
Knox with a smile, "to see if the men
really were looking for me. I think
they were, for Fcarcely had I ap
proached them when they sprang up.
One of them aimed a blow at my stom
ach, but It failed to reach me. I have
no idea who he wus. What happened
to him I nm not prepared to say. Those
things occur very quickly. I am quite
satisfied, however, that he does not feel
as well today as I do. You will note
that I am looking first rate."
"You do not know who were In the
party of your assailants?" the attorney
general was asked.
"Not. positively. I understand that
John T. Schoen, of Philadelphia, and
one of the Cramps, also of Philadelphia,
were in the party, but even of that I
am not at all positive.
"What actuated them I do not know.
A newspaper of today said that It has
something to do with my attitude on
the trust question, but that seems to
be entirely unlikely. As they sat at the
table In the restaurant they made no
reference to the action which, as at
torney general, I have taken against
certain so-called trusts. Their remarks
wore personal to me and to my family,
and were of such a nature that I could
do nothing but resent them.
"I understand that after I left the
restaurant at the conclusion of the
difficulty, the waiters suppressed the
crowd with some energy."
The attorney general evidently was
not in the least injured by his assail
ants, and as he chatted about the
trouble did not seem to regard It very

plicate sets of apparatus of four sys
tems, not Including the Marconi sys
tem. Negotiations with Marconi for
sample apparatus failed. By direction
of Admlial Bradford, chief of the bu
reau' of equipment, Lieutenant Hud
glns proceeded to set up the appara
tus at the Washington navy yard and
at the naval academy In Annapolis, be
tween which points It was decided to
make tho tests. One of the systems
was tested today signals being Inter
changed for tho first time. The dis
tance from Washington to Annapolis Is
about thirty-live miles and the ex
change of signals upon the first at
tempt Is considered encouraging. In
this Initial stage of the tests, the
question of Interference from stray
currents, which Is one of the principal
purposes of the tests, remains unde
termined. The other systems will be
tested In succession, and a board,
which Is to bo appointed shortly, will
decldo the merits of the respective sys
tems and report to the secretary of
the navy. The various systems will be
tried at sea upon tho warships, before

less telegraphy In the navy.
This will include a plan for training
electricians for operating the machines.

FOR ALL TIME
Will Not Be Candidate For Pres

Ticket in 1904.
MASON CITY INTERVIEW
Will Not Promise Never to Be a Can
didate Again, but Has No Plans
for 1004 Perfectly Content to Do
Work as a Private Citizen and
Enjoy His Editorial Work Will
Continue to Advocate Reforms with
Tongue and Pen. i
By Exclusive Wire from The Associated Press. ,
Muscatine, Iowa, Aug. 8. William J.
Bryan settled for all time the rumors
that he will be a candidate for presi
dent In 1904, in an Interview today,
while on the way to Danville, 111., where
he spoke tonight. Colonel Bryan; when
shown yesterday's reports that he
might again be a candidate, was much
nettled and expressed himself In no un
certain manner. He said he wanted the
matter settled right now, so there could
be no further question. The Mason City
Interview, he said, was unreliable,
"I will not be a candidate for presi
dent In 1904," said Mr. Bryan. "While
I would not .promise never to be a can
didate again under any circumstances,
I have no plans looking to the future
nomination for any office. I am per
fectly 'content to do my work as a pri
vate citizen and' enjoy my editorial
work. I shall continue to advocate,
with' tongue and-pen, reforms which I
believe to be necessary."
Talking of the Republican platform
of Iowa, Mr. Bryan said: .i
"I am glad to notice anilmprovement
In Iowa politics. By the action of the
recent state convention I am glad -to
note that they realize and recognize,
that behind the tariff lurks the great'
monopolies and trusts of this country.
Nine years ago I Introduced a bill 'Into
congress exactly on those same lines,,
taking the tariff off. trustmade' goods,
and although the endorsement comes a
little late, I am glad to note that, even
after nine years, the Republicans of
Iowa have come to my way of thinking.
But the action of the Republican party
will be of little effect In national poll
tics, for the simple reason that those
who control legislation are those who
favor the trusts and monopolies of the
country. People who furnish funds for
the Republican party are'the ones who'
name your attorney general and those
having authority. They do not want
your money out here. They want your
votes. So I say that the plank In the
Republican platform Is merely educa
tional, that is all."
