THE BURLINGTON FKEE PRESS AND TIMES: MONDAY, AUGUST 1, 1910. , Bl EEK MURDERER nuGSirneni ! ST SCALE IN THIS STATE 2 as MANNED MOTHS! WMffl ClffiEi MIMIC WAR ON AN TRAIN WRECK III HOOSAC TUNNEL M IE BREAKERS EXTENSIV A Rutland Street Railway Manage-ment Determined to Break Up Union. TWENTY-FOUR MEN QUIT WORK Intense Feeling Prevails but Strikers Maintain Peaceable Attitude Commuters Walk in Sympathy. (Special to the Free Press) Rutland, July 31 The strike of the street railroad conductors and motor-men yesterday did not prevent the trolley company running- Its cars today. The cool weather prevented the usual heavy traffic of Sunday and acted in the company's favor, 'the regular cars being ample to accommodate the public. Only two of 24 regular men were on duty to-day. Strike breakers brought here In anticipation of trouble and employes from other departments of the electric company moving the cars. The son of President G. Tracy Rogers Is acting as conductor. The senior member of the firm of Wadell & Mahoney, among the best-known strikebreakers in the country, Is here in charge of 60 .men, who, also are armed as the company will take no chances, although the SO striking employes have stated that there will be no violence on their part. All the 12 deputy sheriffs in Rutland county have been placed on duty. G. Tracy Rogers of Binghamton, N. T., president of the company, said yesterday tfternoon: "We won't recognize the union under my consideration. We've started In to break the union and we'll do it if U lakes all summer." LOCKOUT IS DECLARED. "When traffic started yesterday morning the union men who had not accepted the company's proposition of an Increase from $1.80 to $1.90 a day, repudiating the carmen's organization, were not allowed to work. Eight union men had Bigned that agreement and made runs in the forenoon. They Joined their locked-out brothers, however, yesterday afternoon when the strike was declared. The last effort to reach a peaceable set tlement failed yesterday forenoon when George S. Kaley, general manager of the company, refused to entertain a written proposition from the union to arbitrate the controversy. He stated that the union would not be recognized but the company would treat with the men as In dlviduals if they would drop their mem bership in the union. There is intense feeling In some quar ters over the company's action. The union has given out white ribbons on which are printed the words "we walk" and they are being worn quite generally. Borne women to-day walked from "West Jutland to their work in this city, a distance of four miles, and back again to night, rather than ride with strike breakers. The first trips of the cars were omitted yesterday morning on the line to Fair Haven and the belt lines In this city Afterward, however, the schedule was fairly well maintained with ' the eight regular men on the through trips and strike breakers on the belt line cars until the strike was declared at four yesterday afternoon. The 'extra trips on the line to lake Bomoseen were aban doned and probably will not be main tained to-morrow. STRONG VOTE FOR STRIKE. The trouble came to a head last Tuesday night when division 247 met to take the strike vote. When the ballot boxes were turned In Thursday afternoon it was found that considerably more than two- thirds of the 25 members had voted for a strike. The result was forwarded by lesln Orr, treasurer of the national organization, who la looking after the Inter ests or ue union, to tne national executive committee. For Borne time the union has been negotiating for a higher rate of wages, asking 25 cents an hour for all conductors and motormen. The wages of the men were increased two years ago from 16 to 18 cents an hour the first year of employment and 20 cents for experienced men. The men cay General Manager Haley promised a 1-cent Increase and gave them encouragement with President Rogers of a 2-cent advance. This was considered sufficient. LIGHTNING KILLS FARMER.

Quincy, Mass., July 31 Louis Restelli, an Italian who formerly lived in Barre, Vt., Is being sought by the Ver mont and Massachusetts officials for one of the most cold blooded murders that ever took place in this vlclaity. . The crime ? was committed Friday afternoon, when Restelli, crazed by drink, hatred and rage, used two army revolvers with deadly effect. He first shot his aged mother, Mrs. Mariana Restelli, killing her Instantly. Henry E. Hardwick, owner of the quarry in which the murderer worked, was the other victim.- The wounded are Gaspare Restelli, brother, shot three times in the stomach, once in the back and once In the right wrist, condition critical; C. T. Hardwick. shot through the right knee; Benjamin Bishop, shot through left arm; William M. Adrian, wounded In right side. That more people were not shot is due to the poor marksmanship of the murderer, Immediately after the shooting Restelli plunged into the wooded hills near the quarry section. Since that time several clues have developed but no positive assurance has beer received of the where abouts of the murderer. Conductor C. D, Graves of the Boston & Maine Is of the opinion that he ook up Restelll's ticket for Rutland, Ma33., Friday night, and at that time the mui told him that he wanted to go to Rutland, Vt., instead, and inquired if the conductor could not give him a pass to that city, receiving an answer in the negative. The police in Rutland are watching all trains for the south. Reports were received there last night that a man answering the description of the murderer was on board the evening train bound for Ludlow, at which place he Is said to have relatives, but a search of the train failed to locate him. DON'T DARE ENTER BARRE. Rest ellt r,eft That City In a Hurry Police Watching for Him. (Special to the Free Press) Montpeller, July 31. The police and sheriff departments of this city and Barre were notified yesterday : to keep a sharp lookout for Louis Restelli, the Quincy, Mass., murderer. It was Intimated that he fled to Barre and was being shielded by friends there. The officers of both cities are on the alert but thus far have seen nothing to indicate that Restelli is in this vicinity, Restelli, formerly lived in Barre. Prior to 1898 -he worked In that city a3 a stone cutter. For divulging certain secrets confided to iJrrfhe was virtually driven out of Barre by his countrymen. Be cause of this it Is t&ought Improbable that he Will return to- this locality. i 0 L VERMONT NOTES William L. Swltser of Norwich, a farm er, has filed a petition In bankruptcy. Mr. Swltser has liabilities of $4,664 and assets of $318, of which $310 is exempt. Frederick G. Ellison of Springfield has received an order from the first assistant postmaster-general that the postoffice at Weatherfield would be discontinued after Saturday. For' some time there has been very little business at the post- office from the fact that all the people in that locality have their mafi delivered from the R. F. D. The advocates of a municipal lighting plant in Brattleboro will doubtless agitate the matter when the report of the special lighting committee appointed at the annual village meeting in April is made public. It Is understood that the Investigations of Col. J. G. Estey and Horton D. Walker, who were named as a committee to act with the village bailiffs in Investigating lighting conditions in nearby cities and towns, will be embodied in a suggestion ox recommendation that a municipal lighting plant be installed if a satisfactory contract cannot be secured between the village of Brattleboro and the Twin State Gas & Electric company. E. N. Normandeau of Barre has been awarded the contract to erect the dam for the new reservoir for the village of East Barre. The reservoir is to be built just below the old one and will be of a larger capacity. It will be put in at an expense of between $8,000 and $10,000. Mr.. Normandeau will start operations on the dam tomorrow. The Advent Christian Church in Rutland has extended to the Rev. George Oe man of Crousvllle, Me a formal invitation to become their pastor.

John Lookinland of Bennington, about 60 years of ago, committed suicide Thursday evening by drinking carbolic acid. He had been in poor health for some time and despondency is given as the cause for the rash act. He leaves a widow and two young children. , The . family had been residents of Bennington less than a year, coming here from Swanton, where Lookinland had been employed at the Robin Hood powder works. WILLING TO MEET JOHNSON. Barney Oldfleld Will Do It on Race Track tor SS,0OO. New Tork. July 31. Jack Johnson, the heavyweight champion, has found one white, man who is willing to race against him In an automobile. In a telegram from Allentown, Pa., Barney Oldfleld says: "I notice in to-day's New Tork newspapers a challenge issued by Jack Johnson to race me for $5,000 over the Brighton Beach track. Ordinarily I should not reply, until I knew that the challenge was authentic, mit New Tork promoters wired me to-day asking if I would race Johnson. "Automobile racing is my business and if Johnson or any other man in the world has $5,000 to bet that he can beat me at my game, I am ready to race." - - Terrified Passengers Imprisoned under Mountain over Two Honrs No Casualties. North Adams, Mass., July 31- Suffering from intense heat, with breathing made difficult by smoke and gas, 200 passengers were confined in Hooeac tunnel for two and a quarter hours yesterday after the eastbound train due to pass through this city at 11:27 a. m., over the Fltchburg division of the B. & M., left the rails about 300 feet east of the central shaft of the tunnel, blocking both tracks. Women and children were thrown into a panic and all the passengers received a severe jolting when the accident occurred. The train was running nearly 80 miles an hour when the accident occurred, but not a person was hurt. To add to the confusion was the fear that another train, due from opposite direction, should crash into the cars, which leaned toward the westbound track. It was after 5 p. m. before the westbound track was cleared, and it was 6:0tf p. m. when the express for Boston due to leave here at 2:27 entered the big bore with its own passengers and those of the wrecked train, using the west track after three passenger trains which had been waiting at the east end of the tunned had passed through. The 11:27 train for Boston, made up of an express car, baggage car, two Pullmans, a smoker and coach, was about JO minutes .late, and entered the tunnel at 11:39. It had passed the big ventilating shaft midway of the tunnel, and was beginning to gather speed down the in-line, when the tender of the locomotive left the rails, followed by all the cars, the locomotive alone remaining in its place. The train ran several lengths over the ties before it came to a halt, and only the hardness of the roadbed, which kept the car wheels from plowing into '.t very deeply, prevented a much worse acci- j dent. PASSENGERS PANIC STRICKEN. ! The cars tilted over to the left toward the westbound track, throwing passengers toward the side of the car, and the wheels striking the ties gave those on board the train a severe Jolting. There was a chorus of screams, two or three women fainted and others became hysterical. Some of the trainmen ran to a nearby telephone to notify the outer world of the accident. The telephone system, however, had been crippled bya thunder storm during the morning, and the trainmen could not make themselves understood. Meantime 'other trainmen had been going through the cars to see if anyone was injured and reassure the passengers. They attempted to persuade them to remain in the cars and keep windows and doors closed to exclude the smoke. . Word spread, however, that another train which generally meets the east-bound In the tunnel was due, and there was a rush to the doors by pas sengers who feared that the other train would come tearing through the darkness and crash Into the cars tilted toward the westbound track. The trainmen were forced to give way. The westbound train, however, was late and, although the ofSlclals at North Adams were unable to distinguish much of what the trainmen at the telephone were saying, they knew that there had been an accident in the tunnel and the other train was caught and held at the eastern portal. The passengers who left the wreck ed train quickly found conditions worse outside the cars than inside. Attempting to grope their way through the intense blackness in the damp hole, and stumbling over rails and against the - sides of the tunnel, they only reallxed the more their helplessness, buried in the heart of the mountain. Assured by the trainmen that precaution had been taken to make further accident Impossible, they were glad to return to th cars. BREATHING WAS DIFFICULT. After the excitement subsided the long wait for the rescue began. It was hot stifling hot The rain of the morning had made ventilation better, but the smoke and coal gas made breathing difficult. Women and children lay across seats almost hepless, while men perspired and fumed. When It was learned that there had been an accident in the tunnel the offi cials outside sent a locomotive' and crew in slowly to investigate. The wreck was found and It was discovered that ne car had leaned to far over th westbound track as to make it Impossible for a locomotive to pass. v When the conditions were reported out side a locomotive and two cars were sent in from North Adams and the passengers were brought out. Those on the wrecked train were given dinner at the Hotel Richmond by the B. & M. Wrecking trains were sent Into the tunnel, and the crews working under dis tressing conditions made the westbound track passable and then began work up on tne other. wnen everyxmng was ready for the haul, a huge oil burning locomotive was sent Into the tunnel late this evening to pull the derailed cars back on the track ana out. The oil burner itself left the rails un der its heavy load and at 10 o'clock a wrecking gang called from Mechanics vllle, N. T., entered tbe tunnel to dig out tne ou (burner. ACCIDENTAL, SAYS BARNES. Republican Leader Explains Confer ence vntn Hitchcock and Will cox. New Tork. July 3L William Barnes, Jr., the republican leader of Albany, re turned here tc-day from London, where he met Postmaster General Hitchcock and William R. Willcox, chairman of the public service commission of this district. "It was a purely accidental meeting," said Mr. Barnes to-night, "and we had no formal conference. I haven't been In touch with party affairs here since I left, and for the matter of that, I am not much interested in the republican nomination for governor, but I 'am deeply Interested in whatever concerns direct nominations." Mr. Barnes reiterated his hostility to any measure looking in that direction and declared that the question of whether the' people of this State are to have a representative government or mob rule 1 before them.
