JAY COOKE'S VIEWS
ON MIKE STRIKE
Says He Would Have Met Men Half

By Kxvlushc Wliu from The Auuciatril Picas.
New York. Aug. 31. The Herald
prints an Interesting Interview with
Jay Cooke, the veteran financier and
man who In his busy days transacted
more and bigger business than Plerpont
Morgan ever dreamed of. Mr. Cooke
predicts a continuation and growth ot
present prosperity; credits our won
derful development to the economic
doctrine of Protection; and on other
Tho constant outcry against wealth
merely because It is wealth Is wickedly
wrong. Wu know that only a few men
can lie capitalists, and if they use their
capital for the development of the coun
try's resources they should be encour
aged and not antagonized.
Men like .Morgan are making this coun
try great. Instead of wasting their time
and money In useless pleasure, they'aro
devoting, arduous labijr, jtuul-hmln power,
i:' organizing' Jreift enterpiiii" and de
veloping forces which increase the wealth
of the nation. They prosper greatly, it Is
triip, "but It Is absurd to say that they
prosper at the expeuso of tho people.
They prosper with them.
The greatest danger to our national
prosperity Is the spreading of the idea
that capital and labor are antagonistic.
They are banded together, working for
the common good, and one without tho
other Is useless. It Is a grave pity that
men should see!: to stir up enmity be
The Coal Strike.
The strike should never have begun.
Suppose 1 bad been in the position of
these operators; 1 would have called tho
men up and said, "Well, boys, what do
"An eight hour day and twenty cents
more on the ton."
"That's too much, boys. Wc employ
ers work ten or twelve hours a day, and
we get only our bread and butter, just as
you do. All the rest is vanity. Uut let
us say ti nine hour day, and twenty coats
on the ton." And then I'd add that
twenty cunts to the price of coal, and the
public would pay It. There would be no
How much bolter It would be if some
such common sense had been chosen. Hut
tho Intrusion of labor agitators made tho
operators Impatient, and the foreigners,
who liavo not learned to enjoy properly
the blessings of freedom, proved a dis
turbing element. So tho war was on.
It Is these labor disputes, duo to agita
tion and unjust demands by radical
unionism, which contain tho only threat
to national prosperity. They engender
strife between labor mid capital, where
as thero can bo prosperity only when
these grout forces work in harmony. Wo
should always strive to bring about better
feelings. On both sides thero should bo
a realization that labor and capital aro
banded together, both working for tho
We Are Brothers.
How could the strike bo settled now','
My opinion Is but the opinion of ouo man.
But 1 should say that there ought to bo
some understanding possible, somo agree
ment which should insure stable condi
tions for a stated lci;m of years, so that
there would bo no possibility of disturb
ance during that time. It Is not a mere
question of dolla and cents or of tho
hours in a day's mrk. Wo should re.

By Exclusive Wire Iroin The AMoclatcd Pre..
Altoonn, Pn Aug. 31. During a
short thunder-storm yesterday after
noon, lightning struck the big barn on
Supremo Court Justice John Dean's
farm, nt Elizabeth Furnace, three miles
east of Altoonn, setting It on fire. In
the barn at the time was Augustus D.
Carpenter, aged 21 years, a farm-hand
employed by Farmer J. Uelnlnger, who
has charge of the farm. He had fin
ished his day's work und was putting
away the horses. Thu same bolt which
fired the barn killed Carpenter.
The only persons nbout the farm was
H-inlnger's two young daughters, Car
rie and Maggie. When they saw the
barn In flames they ran to it, and,
making a hurried search, found Car
penter's body. They carried It out and
Into the house. Then they returned
und removed nearly nil the live stock
rnd part of the vehicles and farm im

with feed and harness, were consumed

Chicago and Northwestern Express
Lifted from Rails by Tornado and

Owatonna, Minn., Aug. 31. A tor
nado lifted a Chicago and Northwest
ern passenger express train off the
truck four miles west of here last even
ing, killing Instantly at least three per
sons and injuring thirty-four others.
An appeal for relief from this place
was promptly responded to. A wreck
ing train, with several surgeons und
nurses, was sent down.
The wreck was probably tho worst
that ever happened In this section of
tho state. Three persons are dead, four
are fatally Injured and thirty-four
others received Injuries, some of them
serious. The dead':
Delmar Peterson, fi years old, Wase
ca, Minn., head completely severed.
Ethel Richards, New Clin, cerebral
Injuries, died soon after being removed
from the wreck.
Unknown woman about 30 years old,
supposed to have come from Lake Mills,
Investigation shows that the storm
which wrought such damage to the
train was but a thousand feet In width.
From all reports It Is evident that tho
engine escaped the fury of the tornado
by about a few feet, but It remained
standing on the .track .while the six
coaches JA th'e tvnln were picked up us
if thqy were feathers and rolled over
and over down the steep embankment.
Four of the coaches caught tho full
fury 'of the storm and were carried
much farther than were -the other two.
In these four coaches occurred all of
the deaths and the majority of the In
juries. The baggage car received the
storm's full force and was literally
smashed to splinters.
SWAM THE RAPIDS.
The Daring Graham Makes the Haz
ardous Journey with Assistance
of a Life Preserver.
By Exclusive Wire from The Associated Press.
Niagara Falls, N. Y Aug. 31. Car
lisle D. Graham swam from the whirl
pool below Niagara Falls, through the
lower ruplds to Lewlston, this after
noon. Graham made a better swim than ho
did on the ninth of September, 1901,
when Maude Wlllard attempted to nav
igate the upper rapids In Graham's
barrel and was suffocated.
Graham today wore a life preserver
about his wulst and a neck float. He
entered the water at 3.17. The swift
running current whirled the swimmer
to the centre of the stream, and for
nearly half an hour Graham battled
with the waves. As far as the Devil's
Hole it appeared comparatively easy
for Graham, and then he plunged Into
rough water, which many times hid
him from sight.
Only once, however, was ho In dan
ger. A current suddenly tossed him
toward the shore dangerously near a
Wg boulder that Ishowed threateningly
above the surface. By desperate swim
ming he Just avoided the rock and was
carried down stream. Below the Dev
il's Hole, where the river narrows,
Graham hod another hard battle. For
a time ho was completely hidden from
view and the hundreds of spectators
on the bridge and along the banks
grow greatly excited. Graham soon
appeared In the smoother wurter, where
tho river widens and tho crowd
cheered him heartily, ,
He declined to enter n boat nnd swam
to the shoro Just below the new trolley
bridge. After a rub down Graham said
he felt no bad effects from his hazard

Believed to Be the Most Complete
Ever Established Anywhere.
By Exclusive Wire from The Associated Prow.
Newport, H. I., Aug. 31. Under cover
of fog and the blackness of night, the
North Atlantic fleet, commanded by
Hear Admiral Higglnson, slipped its
cable in Menemsha light, Vineyard
sound, shortly before 10 o'clock tonight
and put to sea, making the first move
afloat In the war game between army
and navy in the Imaginary war along
the southern New England coast. On
land from Fort Rodman at New Bed
ford to Fort Wright at Fisher's Island,
every fortification Is manned by artil
lerymen and every headland Is patrolled
by signalmen just as carefully as If a
really hostile fleet were about to de
scend upon this part of the seaboard.
Never in the history of this country
has such a grim aspect been given to
the defences which guard New Bedford,
the cities on Narragansett bay, the
Connecticut shore, and. more Import
ant, even the city of New York, from
attack under cover of Martha's Vine
yard and adjacent Islands, and through
the great waterway, Long Island sound.
Once the fleet had been swallowed up
In darkness and It will be next heard
of when it makes a descent on the
coast within the zone of hostilities.
There are nearly 5,000 men afloat nnd
It may be that Admiral Higglnson will
endeavor to land his marines at some
exposed point of the shore defences and
attempt to capture it before making his
attack In an effort to force nn entrance
to Buzzard's or Nar.rupansett bay i or
Long Island sou lid, or even to silence
some one of the birr forts.
The first point of attack is looked for
at Fort Rodman, manned by volunteer
artillerymen, but there may only occjur
a reconnoisfance by the gunboats while
the great battleships swing into action
to the westward and by skillful ma
noeuvring, theoretically, hammer tho
fortifications to a mass of ruins with
their ponderous turret rifles.
Not a Day of Rest.
With Imaginary war almost at hand,
Sunday was far from a day of rest to
the troops manning the defenses In this
vicinity. Working parties were out
nearly all day, while the Massachusetts
troops at Fort Adams and Greble had
a busy time among the big guns and
mortars. Company by company they
were taken up to the numerous batter
ies where the details were explained to
them by the painstaking regulars, but
as admissions to the forts were cut off,
the regulars were unmolested by the
crowds of excursionists which surged
Into -the city.
The men at the signal stations scat
tered along the shore, were, however,
not so fortunate. Tho searchlights at
Price's Neck, although somewhat off
the beaten track of the ocean drive,
had numerous visitors, while the little
telephone stations at Bnteman's Point
and Castle Rock were fairly besieged.
At one time nearly one hundred curious
excursionists were clustered about a
little corporal's guard ut the very tip
end of the island of Rhode Island.
These little stations have been desig
nated ns A, B and C. Stntlon A is the
one at Castle Rock; station B, at
Batemnn's Point, and station C, nt the
searchlight at Price's Neck. Assistant
Secretary of War Sanger, who has been
here for the past three days, wus tak
en on board the Nourmahal, owned by
John Jacob Astor, and shortly before
noon the yacht left for the eastward In
the direction of the fleet, oft Martha's
Vineyard. Tho Nourmahal arrived
back hero Just before dark.
The gunboat Gloucester arrived dur
ing tho day in order to get the last
mall. As she disappeared In the mist
to the eastward on her return, those
on shore caught the last glimpse that
they will probably have of any of Ad
miral Higglnson's fleet until thoy
make their appearance threatening
The weather all day was hazy, and
tonight n fog Is threatened and every
precaution wus taken to guard against
nn attack after midnight, tho time at
which actual hostilities may begin.
Gunning at New London.
New London, Conn., Aug. 31. At In
tervals all day today the big: guns and
mortars In this vicinity belched forth
smoke and sent shots several miles (out
in sea. The concussion wna so great
that Is was plainly felt In this city, and
It seemed by tho sound as If the guns
were nt old Fort. Trumbull, Instead of
from seven to thirteen miles distant.
Tho United States ship Panther, with
the Connecticut naval battalion on
board sailed away to the eastward Just
before noon today to join the attacking
fleet, leaving the training ship Lancas
ter In the harbor as tho sole represen
tative of tho navy.
Major General MacArthur and Gen
eral Greeley, chief signal ofllcer, will
be at Fort Trumbull until after tho

sidered tho most advantageous for tho

Western Horse Captures' Rich Event

Second, Dazzling Third.
By Exclusive Wire from The Associated Press.
New York, Aug. 31. Savable, sired
by Salvator, the most sensational race
horse the American turf has ever seen,
won the rich Futurity nt Sheepshead
Bay yesterday. John A. Drake, a west
ern millionaire, owns him; his trainer,
Enoch Wishard, Is from the west, and
Lyne, a western jockey, rode him to
victory. August Belmont's Hastings
colt. Lord of the Vale, was second, only
an eyelash behind, while Dazzling, one
of the four Keene representatives, fin
ished third. The time was 1.14, better
than the Futurity record over the full
course, but a second und four-fifths
lower than the best full six furlong 2-year-oid
record down the chute.
Twenty-four of the thirty-one young
sters curded went to the post, and after
a delay of twenty minutes the big field
was sent away. Sixty thousand spec
tators watched in breathless Interest.
Through that cloud of dust every one's
eyes made out his own favorite. There
were cries of "Irish Lad" and "Golden
Maxim" and "Flying Princess" and
"Mizzen" und half u dozen others.
Savable, the son of Salvator, never
was thought of. There were hoarse
shouts for Dazzling and Duster, for
Aceful and Payno and Whltechapel.
Yet one small group they came from
the west had their strained eyes set
for a glimpse of turquoise blue that
