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 scattered instantly. 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 the borough building, In which the men are cnnllned. There was little of Interest In the (raiup of the troops today. The region remains very quiet and there was noth ing for the soldiers to do but go through the tou tine of, the camp. Biigudler General John W. Sehull, of the First lirlgudo, accompanied by General Weaver, of his staff, came hero from Philadelphia today and paid n visit to brigade headquarters.

THE PROGRAMME AS ANNOUNCED YESTERDAY 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.

Announcement wns made that Lucas Tooth, the Australian, who presented $50v000to'' the king for the hospital fundThas given the queen a similar sum, which her majesty desired to de vote to the work of the association, and that the queen's appeal In January had bi ought In $1,500,000, making the total of public subscriptions to the associa tion during and since the war $6,500,000. Large crowds gathered on the route to and fiom the palace and warmly cheeied the queen. 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 In a strictly personal capacity. Tho Aineilcan embassy received a 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 Procession, 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 10.45. 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 of the peerage. Then comes the state coach, convey ing their majesties, attended by the Duke of Connaught and Prince Arthur of Connaught, followed by the royal standard, and nn escort. After these come the Duke of Duc cleuch, captain general of the royal company of archers; Early Watde grave, captain of the yeomen of the guard, and the Duke of Portland, mas ter of the horse guards, followed by the equerrles-ln-wnltlng and the roynl grooms. The rear division consists of an escort of the royal horse guards, and the reserves squadron of the sec ond life guards. THE ASSAULT ON MR. KNOX The Attorney General Tells of the Atlantic City Trouble. 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 mildly. "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 seriously, NOTHING KNOWN OP FRIARS' LAND SALE Manila in Ignorance of the Beported Transfer of Heal Estate to an American Syndicate.

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." TECUMSEH WINS. The American Challenger Successful in the Second Race.
