FORGED THE FIGHT
oyers Would Not Wait
for a Gradual Stop.
ORDER A 10 HOUR DAY
ose Is Achieved and the
Strike Is Called.
Chicago, May 2S. Anxious to spread
the strike of machinists, the Chicago
Metal Trades association today directed
the posting of notices in all shops to
the effect that all the men will be "put
en a ten-hour work day after May 31.
The notice served the purpose for which
it was issued, and the officers of the
V Machinists' union tonight issued an order
to all its members to quit work on Tues
day at the conclusion of a day of nine
(hours. About 2,500 machinists will be
involved in the strike and their idleness
vill throw about l.vOO other men out of
The action taken today by the em
ployers was intended to checkmate the
Union, which was intending to call strikes
fa the shops at the rate of one or two
each week. The employers desired a
light all along the line, and the notices
today were posted with the express pur
jwse of forcing the men to make a gen
oral fight instead of confining it to a
flew shops at a time.
CARRIED OFF HONORS.
Yale University Was Victor on Frank
Philadelphia, May 28. Yale university
carried off first honors in the intercolleg
iate championships on Franklin field this
afternoon after a hard fight. Instead of
twenty points, as predicted, only nino
pointed separated the New Haven rep
resentatives from their old. Harvard. The
Cambridge beat Pennsylvania by only
1 1-3 points. The scores of the eleven
point winners are as follows:
Yale, 3i 1-3: Harvard, 23 1-3; Pennsyl
vania, 24; Princeton, 15; Cornell. 15; Syra
cuse, 10 1-3; Colgate. 6; Columbus, 5; Am

third and seven fourths; Harvard three
firsts, one second, one third and one

one third; Colgate two seconds; Columbia
one first; Amherst one second and one
third; 2ew YorK university and Haver
ford one third each. Besides this, Yale,
Harvard and Syracuse divided first hon
ors in the pole vault.
The performance of the men was as fine
as has been seen at any intercollegiate
aneet. Two intercollegiate records were
roKen and a third was equalled; yhilo in
(several other events the time made was
'within fractions of the best figures . J.
vB. Taylor, the colored member of Penn
sylvania's Urack team, broke the record
of 49 2-5 seconds in winning the quarter
mile run. He finished two yards in the
lead, running easily, xne pole vault rec
ord of 11 feet 7 inches was passed and
the- new figure placed at 11 feet 74 inches,
by R. B. Gring, of Harvard; II. L. Gard
iner, Syracuse, and R. N. McLanahan,
who were tied for first place. On the
jump off for medals. McLanahan cleared
the bar at 11 feet 9 inches, but these
figures will not stand because they were
made after the event had ended. The
record equalled was that for the half
mile, 1:56 4-5, and was done by E. B.
Parsons of Yale. He could have un
doubtedly passed the figures had he been
The surprise of the day was Yale's fail

good showing made by Pennsylvania.

CHURCH AND STATE.
Question of Separation Will Come Up
Paris, May 28. Premier Combes' an
nouncement that the question of the sep
aration of the church ana state would
come up in "January has drawn attention
to the law already formulated by the
committee on the separation of church
and state. It is a sweeping measure, the
opening clauses reading as follows:
"The republic assures freedom of con
science and it guarantees the free exer
cise of religion without restriction, ex
cept for the preservation of public or
der. "The republic will neither protect nor
pay salaries nor subventions, under any
form whatever to any demonination. It
will not recognize any minister of reli
gion, and will not furnish any building
for the services of any denomination or
for the lodging of any of its ministers."
The measure further abolishes the con
cordant, suppresses the French embassy
at the Vatican, arid makes detailed pro
vision for the disposal of the govern
ment's extensive possession of church
In comparison with the present regime,
under which the clergy are salaried offi
cials and the minister of public worship
is one of the members of the cabinet,
the foregoing makes a striking change
in long-established secular conditions.
FOR THE EDITORS.
They Want Seats at the Republican
"Washington, May 2S. At a conference
held with President Roosevelt by the
leading officers of the Republican Na
tional Editorial association a request was
made for an assignment of seats in the
visitors' gallery for the editors of such
Republican newspapers belonging to the
association as might be unable to secure
seats among the larger newspapers in the
press enclosure at the Republican national
convention meeting at Chicago on June
21. President Roosevelt immediately ex
pressed himself as decidedly in favor of
having a seat for every Republican edi
tor in the country who could attend the
national gathering. Arrangements were
made through Secretary Loeb and Chair
man Payne, for the issue of a reasonable
number of admission tickets for the mem
bers of the Republican National Editorial
association. F. M. Bunne, editor of the
Advertiser, Danville. N. Y., will take
charge of the distribution. ,
