10,000 skilled workmen, members
of the Amalgamated Association of

ployed by the American Sheet and

"The convention of the representa-

the declaration of the American

its plant non-union, has decided that
the Amalgamated association will re-

from New Orleans to console him.
The Laniana youth was kidnapped in

father. The latter refused to pay
the amount and the lad's head was

the second woman to kill herself
within a year or so, for love of Al-

first woman who killed herself—a

story, was mSTle here today by an
American woman known in New

the pretty divorcee, who shot her-

The American woman, whose hoiae

personal friend of the former Mrs.
Alfred Vanderbilt, says that what
she told is no secret to the members
of the Vanderbilt set in New York,
although outsiders have not been
aware of it.
"Love for him, Means Death."
"If a woman loves Alfred Vander-
bilt," she said, "she might as 11
make her mind to take poison or
shoot herself. Why, there isn't a
woman in the younger set in New
York who doesn't believe that he
has the evil eye. Two women have
killed themselves for him already
and we are all asking each other
who will be the next."
She then explained her declaration
that Mr. Vanderbilt's affair with
Mme. Ruiz was only a blin 1
"Poor little Ruiz," she said. "She
was merely a pawn in the game of
love. All the women of the Vander-
bilt set knew that and nicknamed
Ruiz accordingly. They called her
the 'alibi.' The only woman with
whom he ever was really in love was
a young matron who, though not so
familiarly known, perhaps, was at
least as well connected in society as
he was. But he was married and so
was this woman, and their meetings

"Therefore this girl who killed
herself in London was induced to
pose as his sweetheart. That was
even before she became Mme. Ruiz.
Her marriage—she didn't want to
wed —was due to the insistence of
Alfred Vanderbilt. Then he allowed
his Association with her to become
known. She was to accept his visits,
to ride and drive his horses and to
accompany him to midnight suppers,
all in order that whatever scandal
and obloquy might arise would be
placed upon her and not upon the
