Deposit Newxiiuper Settles "Outing"
Commenting editorially on the
baseless rumors circulated regarding
to the title of the Outing property,
the Deposit Courier-Journal of De
posit In its current Issue says:
"The article that appeared In a re
cent Issue of the Honesdale Independ
ent concerning the title of the Outing
plant in this village in Its transfer
to Messrs .Kelley & Stoinman, of that
place, seems to have been sent tho
Independent by some one hero who
has little or no interest In tho wel
fare of the town, and Is evidently
trying to block the wheels of pro
gress. It does not seem possible that
Deposit harbors an Individual so de
void or public spirit, bo bereft of
every sense or duty to his town as to
want to discourage, or In any way
Interfere with the locating of an in
dustry hero that promises to benefit
Tho same newspaper also publishes
the following letter:
Referring io tho article which ap
peared in the Honesdale Independent
as to the title of the Outing plnnt,
which was furnlshod tho Independent
by a Deposit correspondent, I wish to
state that there Is no foundation
whatever for such n statemont.
Messrs. Kelloy & Stelnraan are not
tho sort of men that Jump at con
clusions. They thoroughly Investi
gated all matters before concluding
a deal for the plant. Tho article fur
nished the Independent was simply
to discourage Messrs. Kelley &
Stoinman from locating In Deposit,
hut their unscrupulous efforts wore
in vain. C, B. VAIL.

Since the strike two butcher shops
have closed and one merchnnt has

are not bothered by strikes, report
that since April 1st business has
been unusually dull.
A workingman wild receives ?15
a week and goes on a strike for ten
weeks loses $150; if perchance an
advance of $1.00 per week is given
him it would take nearly three long

his ten weeks' strike.
During a strike, the men lose, the
bosses lose, the merchants lose, but

The Union Is a great benefit to

and more too, are swallowed up in
losses occasioned by strikes.

THIRD VICTIM DIES.
Mary Vitek, of Simpson, died at

the Erie railroad. She was coming

An engine backing down the track
caught the carriage and wrecked
it. The father was instantly killed;
tho mother received injuries that
caused her death within a week, and
the daughter received Injuries that
the doctors at the hospital said
would result in death at any moment.
How she managed to hold on to life
so long has been a wonder to them.
Her Injuries caused a paralysis of
the body, and, besides broken bones
and lacerations, spinal meningitis de
veloped. Her case wns hopeless from
tho start, and with her death tho
tragedy of tho crossingone of the
worst In the county has claimed an

REMEDIES FOR HIGH PRICES.
Prosecutor of the Bsef Packers Tells
What He Would Do.
Hobokun. N. J., April 21. Prosecutor
Pierre P. Garvcn, who conducted the
cold istorugu Investigation before the
grand Jury of Hudson county, which
resulted In the Indictment of twenty
one beef packers and six companies
for conspiring by cold storage meth
ods to corner foodstuffs and increase
prices, made a speech at the grand
Jury's dinner here, in which he said:
"The result of my Investigation lias
convinced me there are three prime
causes for the present high prices of
meats and kindred products:
"First. A monopoly, which can be
broken up by vigorous and strict en
forcement of the law.
"Second. The present method of us
ing cold storage to control and keep
out of tho market at the will of the
monopolists meats, poultry anil eggs.
This can be remedied by proper regu
uatlon by law of the uses of cold stor
age. "Third. The tariff, with a duty of a
cent and u half a pound on cattle,
roughly nmounting to nbout $15 u
head. This keeps out of the markets
of this country the great supply of
cattle from tho Argentine Republic,
Canada and Mexico, which would oth
erwise be available. This tariff also
aids In holding and maintaining a mo
nopoly. "Tho remedy for tho tariff suggests
Itself that Is, let tho congress take
tho tariff off cattle coming from for
eign countries. This would compel tho
big packers of Chicago to compete
with the world. I believe In protec
tion, but I am In sympathy with pro
tection only when It Is used to protect
our labor and Industry, but when It Is
used as a club to beat and oppress tho
people of the country I am unalterably
"If the men who created and npw
maintain the meat monopoly were
tried, convicted and sentenced to lm
prisonment and If the cold storage
houses were properly regulated by law
and tho tariff altered so as to make
posslblo the use of tho foreign beef
supply, the present high prices would
fall to such an extent that It would
not be a burden to support oneself and
family upon the ordinary Income as It
la today "

ber' of local business men, Supt.

Seven Men Shot In Riot at
CONSTABLE IS FIRST TO FALL
Three Bullets Pass Through Clothing
of Chief of Police After He Has
Ordered Crowd at Steel Work
ers' Meeting to Disperse.
Pittsburg, Pn., April 21. - In n
bloody battle between strikers nnd
township constables nt McKce's Rocks
at least seven persons were seriously
injured, and three of them are likely
Those fatally Injured arc: Consta
ble James M. Daniels, who is shot
through the abdomen and chest; Joe
Blernot, n striker, shot several times
by tho constables, nnd an unknown
striker, who refuses to give his name.
One of the attacking strikers was hit
by a train ns he was escaping from
the pursuing mob nnd knocked over
the bank. lie is thought to have .fallen
Into the river, lint no trace of him
could be found. A farmer named Han
Tian was shot through the hand, and
two unknown foreigners were carried
away by their friends, apparently bad
The battle occurred in the now no
torious Bloody Angle, where so much
rioting and bloodshed occurred In the
last strike nnd where the Victor bank
was looted and two employees killed
some weeks ago.
There had been a mass meeting held
by Industrial Workers of the World
on a nearby Indian mound, and about
250 of the foreign speaking workmen
on their way back stopped at Bloody
Angle to talk matters over. One lead
er was haranguing his fellow work
men in an unknown tongue nnd they
were getting wildly excited -when Chief
of Police Edwin Slivers of Sloe town
ship, with Constable James M. Daniels,
came up to tho crowd and ordered it
The speaker shouted something as
ho jumped from the perch on which
ho had been standing anil there was a
spit of tlame from the crowd and Con
stable Daniels fell to the ground, shot
through the body.
Three bullets passed through the
clothing of Chief Silvers, but none
hurt him. The mob, nfter its first
fire of perhaps a dozen shots, made a
rush for the prostrate constable, but
Chief Silvers, standing over Daniels,
began to shoot fast. Daniels rose to
one arm and lent his lire while four
other constables who had been in the
next square came running up, shooting
as they came.
"Get that big fellow: he has killed
Jimmy!" shouted Chief Silvers to his
men ns he tried to bring down a large
foreigner who had been shooting from
behind a tree.
One of the constables closed with
the foreigner, who, chased from his
hiding place, ran townrd the Ohio
river with a constable In hot pursuit.
The man pursued tried to cross the
Pittsburg and Lake Erie railroad
tracks just as a freight engine running
wild came along, and he was tossed by
the cowcatcher over the bank.
By the time the pursuing constables
got down to tho bank there was no
trace of the rioter who had been hit
by the train, nnd It is not known
whether he was knocked Into the wa
ter and drowned or whether he made
his escape by Hwlmuilug.
In the meantime Chief Sliver and
ids men were having a hot time In the
angle. Tho foreigners gathered up
rocks when their ammunition became
exhausted and hurled them at tho con
stables, who were backed In against a
fenco and had to fight their way out.
A constable named Johnson had his
rovolver knocked out of his hand by
Chief Slivers at this moment dropped
tho rock throwing striker with his
handy billy. At one time six of the
strikers were on tho ground writhing
near Daniels, who had once more
managed to staggor to his feet only to
bo knocked down again.
Finally he thought of nn extra ro
volver which ho had slipped In his In
sldo coat pocket, and ho pulled It Just
ns ho got his back against the fence
and open tiro on tho mob. When Dan
iels came lu with his now gun tho mob
wavered, broko and tied.
