HOSTAGES SET AT LIBERTY.
Some of the Operators Are Not Disposed to
Abide by the Teroia of the Agreement,
Which Is Cuimlng Much
Denver. Col., June 6.—Last night it
seemed certain that the Cripple Creek
troubles had been virtually settled,
Gov. Waite and Mine Owners ,F. J.
Hagerman and David II. Moffat having
arrived at au agreement, but this morn-
ing the report comes from Colorado
Springs that many of the Cripple Creek
operators are not disposed to abide by
the terms of the agreement, and the
excitement is greater than at any time
since the beginning of the trouble,
while Sheriff Bowers declares he will
arrest all strikers who have broken the
laws by their action at hull hill.
State Organizer McIntosh, of the
Western Federation of Miners, says the
miners have accepted the settlement
in good faith and are ready for peace.
The conference began at H o'clock last
night at the request of Gov. Waite. As
soon as the mine owners appeared the
governor announced that he was au-
thorized to act for the miners and
consideration of the various points
was immediately begun. But one
point caused serious complication,
aud that was the time alio wed for lunch-
eon. The miners demanded thirty
minutes, they to be allowed to pay
for the time. This was finally com-
promised and the articles of agreement
as drawn up provide that the miners
shall work eight hours a day with
twenty minutes for luncheon, that they
be paid at the rate of $3 a day,
and that the mine owners in employ-
ing men shall not discriminate against
either union or non-union miners.
At the conclusion of the conference.
Gov. Waite issued a proclamation, call-
ing upon all people in El Paso county
who were forcibly holding the property
of others, and who were bearing arms
in violation of the law. to deliver up
such property and to lay down their
arms. The entire state militia is called
upon to go to Cripple Creek, El Paso
county, and aid the sheriff in restoring

Have loaded beer kegs with dynamite,
scrap iron and railroad spikes and have
placed them on the crests of Globe hill
and Battle mountain.
The defensive movements of the
strikers were finally decided upon as
follows: Mounted scouts, spread out
in all directions, upon discovering the
advance of the deputies, were to
hasten to camp with the informa-
tion. A pre-arranged signal would
be sounded on the steam whistle
at Pike's Peak mine when the
strikers would take their designated
positions. The skirmishers would fall
back slowly, keeping the deputies en-
gaged, until they should reach the bar-
ricades at Bull hill. Behind the bar-
ricades the strikers were to make a
stand, defending themselves with guns
and bombs. If driven from the barri-
cades they were to hasten up the slope
to the fort. Should the deputies follow
them the dynamite mines, planted at
every few yards, were to be explt>ded
and cannons and bombs simultaneously
deal out death from the fort.

St. Joseph, Mo., June 6.—Late yes-

failed grocery firm of Steele & Walker,
turned over all of his Kansas lands for
the benefit of the firm's creditors. The
land is appraised at SI75,000. which
brings the total assets so far up to
000. and additional assets which will be
turned in will bring the total up to
SI, 100,000. The list of creditors has
now reached a little over 8710,000. The
firm is indebted to Mrs. Kate Tootle,

The run on the First national bank
of Buchanan county and the Central
savings bank was stopped at noon.
The Buchanan had over 81.000.000 cash
when the trouble started, and while it
was at its height a wagon drove up
with 8400.000 more in currency. The
bank refused aid offered by the clear-
ing house. At the Central savings the
officials took advantage of the thirty
and sixty days' notice and paid no more
than $50 to a depositor. The run
stopped at 2 o'clock, and when the
bank closed, after being kept open
until night, no one was asking for
money. The run was principally
caused by small depositors and the
bank had more money when it closed
at night than when it opened.

The Man Who GItn Snap and Vim and
Sparkle to the Paper—All Sorts of
Reporters. Good. Bad and
I propose to devote this article to the
newspaper reporter. There are report-
ers and reporters. I shall deal with them
as I have seen them from New York
city to the little reporter of the "Weak-
ly" Express. The newspaper reporter,
like the poet is not made but l orn.
I suppose no country among civilized
nations has such magnificent newspa-
pers as the United States. The re-
porter has largely made the newspaper
what it is. The editor simply sttundsas
the exponent of his own individual
views, however much he may argue to
himself that he is the maker of senti-
ment and the definer of prophecy.
Only a few newspaper editors have
the power to influence others by their
pen. The editor of the New York Sun
is read perhaps more than any other
editor in the United States, but more
read the editorials of the Sun just as
men go to hear Bob Ingersoll lecture,
not because they indorse him or agree
with him, but because he is entertain-
ing. To mould sentiment and create
system belongs to but few newspaper
editors; the reporter is the man who
gives snap and vim and sparkle to the
paper. Really he is the man who
gives the paper its name newspaper.
The reporter gathers the news, and
news is like truth—the way it is put
has largely to do with its character
and the willingness of the people to
receive it. We have all sorts of report-
ers—bright reporters, sober reporters,
drunken reporters, horse race report-
ers, baseball reporters, prize fight re-
porters, religious reporters, reporters
who are reporters and reporters who
are not reporters—to every man his
work. The horse race reporter in his
field of work is magnificent, but were
you to send him to the church to re-
port a sermon he would have the
preacher groomed for the race, he
would have him starting neck and
neck with his text, he. would have him
coming in on the home stretch with fly-
ing colors, and so on.
Were you to send a prize fight re-
porter to a Methodist general confer-
ence he would put the whole thing in
the ring and in all discussions the vic-
tor would have knocked his opponent
out in less than three rounds. The re-
porter in all classes of work soon makes
up his vocabulary and is confined to
his terminology. The average reporter
is a clever fellow. In search of news
for his paper—all kinds of news—I
have sometimes thought that many of
them would sacrifice truth and read-
ableness and candor for sprightliness.
I have had all sorts of reporters after me.
I have stood preaching more than once
when the reporter sitting in front of
me taking the sermon was so drunk he
didn't know which end was up. I was
astonished the next morning to find how
well he had done his work. I suppose
; that condition with him had become
normal. There are very few vicious
reporters who would tell a lie sooner
j than the truth, and who would say a
| mean thing about one rather than a
; good thing. There are long-hand re-
! porters and short-hand reporters. The
j best reporter in the world is the long-
hand reporter. It is he who can brief
Ihe whole matter and get the most
salient points in the most compact
It is a hard matter to report a
speaker and do him justice. If a pho-
tographer were to take a fellow's nose
unci t'lbows and knees and toes and
represent that as a full life-sized
picture of a man he would make him-
self ridiculous, and when a reporter
simply gathers the salient points here
and yonder out of its connection and
represents it as a fair report of the
sermon or speech he does not make
himself ridiculous, but he makes the
speaker tremendously ridiculous.
It is well that the world has learned
that speakers can be misrepresented.
To garble a man is unfair and yet but
few papers have space enough to give
to a full discussion of an hour.
If the average newspaper reporter
would drink less whisky and smoke
less cigarettes he would be better in
dissipation and better qualified in
mind to do the work allotted him.
Theirs is a hard life. They are out
newsgathering from twelve at noon
until two in the morning. Night work
is the hardest work in the world and
is the most conducive to dissipation.
Many a noble, true fellow among re-
porters have I seen wTrecked and
ruined by dissipation on account of
the hours they keep. It is always sad
to me, the picture of a brainy, bright,
noble fellow, wrecked before he
reached mature life. Of course, I
speak of the average reporter. There
are thousands of sturdy, sober, faithful
boys on the reportorial columns of our
papers. The character of their work
determines their salary largely.
They work hard and late to get
something new. and when they have
sought in vain for news and it becomes
a groundhog case with them they be-
gin to manufacture news, and some-
times they can make a very little
event very wonderful when news is
A bright, intelligent reporter, who
is safe in his habits and trustworthy
in his life, will always go to the front
in newspaper work.
I have in my mind now some of the
finest characters I have ever met, hon-
ored by men and rewarded by the rich-
est emoluments, who started out in life
as newspaper reporters. #
Reporting for newspaper is a good
deal like railroading, once a man be-
gins it it has a fascination that holds
him forever- The reporter has his
place and he Ik - come to stay. Like
all other professions this one is largely
in the hands of thofe who run it.
Some reporters have lied on fellows
until if they v. ore to report the truth
oc the same fellow nobody would be-
lieve it. That is one advantage of be-
ing lied on so much. If you are caught
in a mean thing, and they publish it
on you, nobody believes the truth, for
they have been deceived so much with
Ail in all, I am indebted to reporters.
He has done much for me. I have been
frequently misrepresented, but to be
reported at all is a privilege. A man
can letter afford to be lied on than to
Reporter Bailey, of the Dallas News,
is as well known in Texas to-day as
any man in the state. He has made
himself notorious by laying awake at
night and thinking up buttermilk
stories and so on on Sara Jones. Some-
times I read his fabrications and almost
believe them myself, the}* are so nat-
ural and could have occurred so easily,
but I knew they did not occur. He is a
jolly good fellow, and hits written some
things equal to Mark Twain.
A good reporter, one thoroughly
equipped for his work, can take a
clumsy interview from a man and make
magnificent reading. I have been in-
terviewed a few times and felt proud of
the interview when I saw it in a lead-
ing journal next morning, it was bet-
ter than I could do. Again I have been
interviewed and thought perhaps I
owed it to my wife and children to clean
; up the skunk that done the job.
The man who falls into the hands of
a bright, good reporter is raised in his
own estimation, but he who falls into
the hands of a vicious, incompetent re-
porter almost wishes he had ne'er been
Some reporters would not give a cent
for a thing unless it was true; others
are not hunting truth, they are
hunting lies; some reporters have
reverence and respect for charac-
ter, others would crack a joke on their
dead grandmother to make their read-
ers laugh the next morning. Some re-
porters are seeking only for the news
that will make glad the hearts of the
people the next morning; others are
regular scandal mongers whose writ-
ings but bleed the hearts of mothers
and fathers as they spread open to the
gaze of a perverse generation the vicious
lies and misdoings of their sons and
If every reporter would remember
that every son whom they write about
has a mother and every daughter a fa-
ther and every man a friend and
brother who will be wounded at what
he is writing, then indeed he will be
careful how he handles the names and
deeds of erring ones and be more
thoughtful of the hearts that will
bleed and the homes that will suffer.

Lewiston. Me.. June g.—It has been

about $12,000 in cash, notes and bank
books secreted in various places about
his house. It was found by the heirs

seems as far off as ever, though an offer
of $1,000 reward has been made by the
town and heirs.
