St. Louis, Jane 29.—The work of es
tablishing bos lines by the street car
strikers to compete with the St. Louis
Transit oompany in carrying passengers
is progressing. The oommittee that has
the matter in charge reports that (3,000
has been raised for that purpose and
that 22 vehicles are now regularly run
ning. It is the intention to divide the
city into districts and establish regular
lines that will give the public ample ser
vice to any part of the city. An appeal
will be made to th- public to assist in
establishing these lines.
There is considerable interest evinced
in the decision of the 1,600 employes of
the St Lcmis Gar company who have
been asked to ride on the cars of the
Transit company- The request was
made by President Charles Kobusch,
who explained that unless the men
agreed to ride on the Transit cars, the
chances were that the company would
be compelled to shut down the plant,
which secured its power from the Tran
sit company. The matter will be left to
a vote of the Corbuilders and Furnish
ers unions, to which the men belong.
President Kobusch said:
"We have a contract with the Transit
oompany involving upward of $700,000.
The request was made by us to our em
ployes because the Transit company is a
customer of ours for whom we ao a great
deal of work, and of every dollars'
worth of business that the company
does 40 per cent of it is distributed
among onr employes. I feel that if the
Transit company’s money is good enough
for them to earn here the Transit com
pany's cars are good enough for them to
ride in, whether there be a boycott or
no boycott. The request was not a com
pulsory one. We simply asked them to
tide in the cars if they had the interest
of the St. Louis Oar company at heart. ”

When She Arrives.
■Washington, June 29. — Admiral
Kempff has acknowledged the error he
had made in reporting the presence of
the foreign ministers with Admiral Sey
mour’s column 8 miles out from Poking.
His cablegram admits that there is no
knowledge of their whereabouts, and it
is assumed tho error in the first report
arose from the admiral’s acceptance of
rumor that was generally current at the
time the cablegram was sent.
The fact that the admiral's message is

About 260 men will be thrown out of

the fire is a mystery.

Taku, where the foreign fleet lies.
There is, however, a possibility that the
admiral could get a dispatch across from
Taku to Che Foo on the same date by
poshing the York town, which has been
used as a dispatch boat.
Admiral Kempff's news has added to
the depression In official quarters.
Admiral Rewey is pushing the Brook

the fact that there are three men serv

mercy. Under the law such a sentence
is an impossibility, as in case of convic
tion the law provides the death penalty.
Where a recommendation to the mercy
of the court is made the statute provides
that the defendant shall be sentenced as -
for an assault with intent to outrage,
the penalty for which is from one to 90
