Chicago, March 31. Chicago
workingmeii will benefit very ma
terially through the advance in
wages which goes into effect to
morrow. Never before in the his
tory of this city have so many
unions been granted an increase in
wages and had their hours shorten
ed. While no total amount can be
fixed as to the atitunl amount in
wages that the workingmeii of
Chicago will be benefited it is be
lieved by those best posted that
$5,000,000 in additional wages will
be put into the pockets of toilers
next year above last year. Many
other unions have presented demands
for increased wages to go into effect
May 1st, when it is thought that
even more workers will receive an
increase than to-morrow.
In the building trades alone 40,-
000 will receive higher compen
sation, and to these 20,000 more in
miscellaneous trades and callings
cuii be added, making a total of 60,
000 wage-earners in one day who
will receive more for their labor for
the next year, at least. The fol
lowing table presents the number
of members of the leading unions
in the building trades benefited by
increased wages which go into
effect to-morrow morning, together
with the former and present wages.
All are based on an eight-hour

Indianapolis, March 31. The
new wages agreement between the
bituminous coal miners and opera
tors went into effect in nearly
twenty states to-day. The 1902
agreement will continue in Ten
nessee, Alabama and several other
Western and Southern States until
June or July. Figures compiled
by Secretary Wilson show that the
bituminous miners, as a result of
the national and state conventions,
will this year receive an aggregate
increase of $19,427,000 in wages
over last year. This is based on
the output of last year. It is prob
able that the amount will be even
more as the production is likely to
be greater. Including the advance
received by the anthracite men, ttie
total increase will be about 35,000
000 this year.

Dreyfus Wants Ills Rank.
Paris, France, April 8. A great
agitation is being made throughout
France to have action taken to re
habilitate ex-Captain Dreyfus in
the army. Dreyfus wants a further
inquiry to determine absolutely that
he committed no offence against hi
Dreyfus says: "My innocence is

KIWAIUI TO VISIT LOUIII?'f
Talk of ItHnproclieinent ltclneen
Ureal Ilrltnln and France.
Paris, March 31. A statement
was secured from and authoritative
quarters today io the effect that of
ficial negotiations now iu progress
make it practically certain that
King Edward will visil President
Loubct, about, the only question re
maining open being whether the
meeting will occur before or after
the President's voyage to Algeria.
If (before, the King's visit will take
place within the next two weeks,
while he is on his way to the
Riviera, either at Paris or at a place
to be hereafter determined upon.
If the visit is paid after the Presi
dent's Algerian voyage, it will be
about May 1st, at or near Toulon.
Considerable significance is at
tached to the meeting, owning to
recent movements for a rapproche
ment between Great Britain and
France, and the parallel courses
they pursued toward Turkey and
Morocco. It will be the first meet
ing between a French President and
a British sovereign since the late
Queen was received by the late
President Faure on her private tour
while on her way through Paris to
the south of France, in 1897, after
which the Bder war severely strain
ed Auglo-French relations.

two war ships.
John I). Rockefeller Jr. UhlugAuay
Largo Sums to I'oor.
Oaxaca (Mexico), March -.
The peons of Southern Mexico arc
singing the praises of John D.
Rockefeller Jr., while they are in
the enjoyment of such golden
wealth as they never dreamed could
come to them. All this rejoicing
is djue to the liberal hand with
which Mr. Rockefeller and his wife
scattered golden coins on their
journey through Mexico. The
wealthy visitors are still 111 this
country sight-seeing, and where
ever they go a trail of gold is left
behind them, which is bewildering
to the average poor Mexican In
dian. When Mr. Rockefeller arrived at
Juarez, ou the Rio Grande border,
nearly a month ago, and started on
his trip he distributed coins with a
lavish hand among the crowds of
beggars and peons which gathered
at every station. This lasted until
th City of Mexico was reached.
It was in that city Mr. and Mrs.
Rockefeller became impressed with
the actual suffering that existed
among the thousands of poor peo
ple: In their litt'e side trips to
points of interest about the city they
gave alms amounting to hundreds
of dollars to the supplicants.
