STRIKE ENDED FOR $1,000.
Testimony Against Building Trade I
Leader In Chicago.
Chicago, May 20. A Hood of light
was thrown upon building trade strikes
in Chicago at the trial here of Martin
U. Madden, president of the Associated
Building Trades Council of Chicago,
and his associates, F. A. Pouchot and
M. J. Boyle, charged with conspiracy
to extort $1,000 from the Joseph Kilcka
company during a strike on Its plant.
The strike was called by Madden,
who, fur clad and wearing a diamond
pin, Hhouted the order from his auto
mobile. The story of the alleged extortion, as
told by D. L. Frnzor, a construction
engineer employed by Post & Mnchler,
architects of the Kilcka plant, and by
Emll Kilcka, president of the Joseph
Klicka company, has to do with the al
leged passing of money in a down
town saloon and In substance follows:
The strike having been called for no
nppareut renson, Mr. Kilcka sent Mr.
Frazer to see Boyle, who, when asked
how the matter could be settled, said
that Kilcka would have to see Madden.
Klicka and Frazer waited In a saloon
until Madden and his motor car ar
rived, after which Madden and Kilcka
entered a private olllce ut the end of
Klicka and Frazer gave $200 to Boyle
for expenses incurred in calling the
strike, hoping that Boyle would bring
the trouble to an end. Boyle, how
ever, said that the settlement was up
Frazer declared that Madden de
manded $1,."00 as the price of putting
the men hack to work and that Klicka
emerged from the olllce branding the
price as an outrage.
George S. Andres, a construction en
gineer, swore that Klicka gavo him
$1,000 with which to settle the strike.
Andres having told Kilcka that it could
be settled for that sum.
"How am I to know the strike will
be called off If I give you the money?"
I asked him. "Don't worry,'' he said.
"I asked Madden what to do with
the money, and he told me to throw It
on the desk. I did so, and Madden
shoved It in his pocket."
The next day the strike was called
oft" and the men returned to work.

Indiana Senator Protests Against
What He Calls the Autocratic
Action of Aldrich's Fi
Washington, May 20. Senator Bev
eridge of Indiana served notice tin the
senate leaders that undue haste would
not expedite the passage of tlie tariff
Mr. Beverldge protested against
what he characterized as the despotic
action of the members of the finance
committee In disposing summarily of
the proviso to tlie paragraph relating
to watch movements Instead of allow
ing It to go over, as he suggested.
He declared that the proviso, which
requires that all watch and clock dials
shall have printed thereon the country
of origin and, If attached to move
ments, in addition to the country of
origin, Jhe name of tlie manufacturer,
would have the ' effect of destroying
the business of the thousands of retail
watch dealers of the country.
He said that he believed that the
name of the country of origin was all
that was necessary to prevent fraud
upon the purchaser.
"The question is," Mr. Beverldge
added, "whether we shall destroy the
business of the thousands of retail
watch dealers in tills country to bene
fit the watch trust."
Mr. Beverldge criticised tlie attitude
of other members of the senate who.
in their haste to pass the tariff bill,
objected to allowing a full discussion
of all sides of the case.
"A free hearing, when it is asked,"
ho added, "will save much time. A
senator who has done all lie wants In
the bill can deny any other member a
Senator Tillman suggested that the
adoption of tlie proviso be reconsider
ed and the whole subject be reopened,
but Mr, Beverldge said he was not
prepared at this time to treat tlie sub
ject as fully as he would like, but he
promised to bring the matter up later

paragraph so as to conform to his

SECRETARY DICKINSON ILL.
Stricken With Fever and Bladder
Trouble on Cruiser Mayflower.
Havana, May 20. The visit of the
American secretary of war, Jacob M.
Dickinson, to Havana lias been pre
vented by his sudden and severe ill
ness, and the United States converted
yacht Mayflower, on which he ar
rived here, sailed with the secretary
and party aboard.
Secretary Dickinson will be taken
direct to Washington. He has been
confined to ills stateroom for three I
days, suffering from vesical stone. He
has a fever, indicating inflammation,
and the at rending physician decided
that it would not be advisable for liiiu
to remain longer in a warm climate.
It was the original intention of tlie
secretary to remain In Havana three
days to await the arrival of Postmas
ter General Hitchcock.
Secretary Dickinson sailed from
Charleston, S. ('.. for tlie isthmus of
Panama on the Mayflower on April
21, arriving nt Colon on April 2S after
a brief stop at Kingston, Jamaica.
During" his stay on the Isthmus the

Three Rolls of the Drug Found In Con

Flushing, X. Y., May 20. Three rolls
of opium containing thirty-six grains
were found in tho clothing of Captain
Peter C. Halns, Jr., which lie discard
ed on his return to the Queens county
jail after being sentenced to Sing Sing
prison for the murder of William E.
Anuis. Before placing tho captain In n
cell on his return to the jail Sheriff
Harvey directed that he be stripped of
the suit he wore and given other cloth
ing. Tho finding of this drug explains tlie
continual dreamy condition which
marked the captain's demeanor ever
since his arrest. His jailers said he
was n "dope" user. His peculiar sal
low complexion, vacant stare and
glazed eyes led many to believe that
he was a victim of the habit.

and Cleverness In Ducking
Saves Him In Several
Philadelphia, May 20. Philadelphia
was crowded to see Jack Johnson, the
new champion heavyweight, In action
for the first time since lie took the
somewhat dubious title from Tommy
Burns In far off Australia last Decem
ber. But their Interest in the big col
ored fighter scarcely exceeded that in
Jack O'Brien, tlie favorite son, pitted
against a man vastly his superior in
weight. It was a crowd tensely ex
pectnnt that filled the arena of the
National Athletic club. There were
seats for 3.700 persons, and COO others
choked the narrow aisles. Special
trains brought big delegations of spec
tators from Now York, Washington,
Baltimore, Pittsburg and even Chi
cago. There was little or no public betting
on the fight at the ringside. The fact
that no decision is allowed on six
round bouts In this state was respon
sible, of course, for this. There was
some private wagering, however, that
O'Brien would have the advantage on
I points. On this he was favorite at
I odds of R to 4. v
When Johnson shouldered his way
through the crowded aisles and climb
ed into tlie ring ills reception was not

hooting by the galleries. O'Brien

Johnson waited for O'Brien to lead.

sparred cuutiously. O'Brien caught
Johnson a jarring smash on tho faco

showed the effects. Johnson slowed
up and waited for O'Brien to lead. The
crowd yelled for O'Brien to "come nnd

ned and walked In. Ho caught O'Brien
a glancing right on the head and a
left ou tho body, but O'Brien was go-
lug away, and the blows lacked steam.
O'Hrlen feinted and missed a left
swing, going to his knees from the Im
petus of the blow. Johnson appeared
slow and had no advantage In the
I round. If anything, It was to O'lltion's
down, but was up like a Hash and
fighting strong. Johnson tried to send
In his right uppercut that proved so
effective with Tommy Burns, but was
blocked. A right to the face cut
O'Brien's right eye badly, but he came
back with a left Hush on Johnson's
mouth. Johnson rushed viciously, pin
ning O'Brien to the ropes and wres
tling hlin down. O'Brien did most of
the leading at this stage and just as
the gong sounded sent a hard left to
Sixth Round. They shook hands gin
gerly for the wlrnlup nnd sparred cau
tiously. O'Brien led a left, which
lauded on the body good and hard.
Johnson only smiled and held up his
hand to indicate that lie had blocked
It. O'Brien rushed In ngaln nnd tried
hard to land on the face and body, but
was blocked In his efforts. Finally he
sent a stiff left to the face and took a
hard right counter on the head In re
turn. Johnson met O'Brien with a
left to the face as he stepped in, and
the round ended In a clinch.
The consensus of opinion among ex
perts at the ringside was that the fight
was a draw. Referee McGuigan said
O'Brien did remarkably well.
