Th" aw.uil of the aibltratlon board 1
appolnKd under the Kidman act, to'
hear the demands of the lltemeii on the
Kastprn railroads, was miide public last
e oiling. It Is considered a Mctory for
flu employees, who will get wage ad
vances aggregating between f.1QQ.nU0
and 14,000.000 a year.
The tlretuen do not get their demand
for an extta man on engines weighing I
200,000 pounds and hot, and the re
quest that the a waul be made lettu-
active wa.s not conceded.
The wage advances average fioni
10
to 12 per cent, on present wages. The
increase gtanted In the arbitration of
the engineers' demands on the same
roads was only aboTtt i per cent.
Un the other hand, the award In the
case of the engineers was made retro
active from November to May of lust
year.
In the case of the firemen, the award
goes Into effect in ten days from Un
filing of the award In thp Fnlted States
Court yesterday.
The firemen also won their conten
tion that tho rates of wages should bp
base.d on weight of locomotives on
drivers. This was opposed by the rail
roads ns an Inequitable method of es
timating thu wages and value of the
services of firemen.
first AtTard of the Kind.
It Is also the llrst time as far ns
known In an award of this kind under
the Krdmuu act in which the wages
awn t ded were based on weight of loco
motives on drivers.
Hefore both sides agreed to arbitra
tion under the F.rdman act the Mremeu
had twlre mndtllci! their demands. The
demands as last modified, would If
gtunted, the railroads say, have in
creased their i mining expenses about
1 1 1.00O.00O, or an Inciease of 3.i per
cent.
The demands of the Mremeu were
submitted first to the Eastern rallio.uls
about the middle of lyt2. In July of
that year n meeting was held by the
general adjustment committee of the
firemen on the Kastern rnllroids nnd
the manager?' committee of these roads

Washington, April 23. Some Idea of
the grave concern with which the Presi
dent Is now regarding the anti-Japanese
agitation In California may be gathered
from the fact that to-night ho directed
Secretary of State Hryan to hurry to
Sncramcnto.
Mr. Hryan will leave Washington to
morrow nnd will reach Sacramento on
Monday. He hus been Instructed by the
President to represent the national
Government In the drafting of an alien
land bill by the California Legislature.
The President Issued this direction
after he had ascertained from a resolu
tion passed by tho California Legisla
ture this afternoon thai the visit of
the Secretary, as proposed by him,
would be agreeable to that body. Gov.
Hiram Johnson also telegraphed that
the suggested visit would be entirely
pleasing to htm.
The exact purpose of the Iresldent
In having Mr. Bryan visit Sacramento,
ns outlined hy him In telegrams to Gov.
lohnson and to the presiding officers
.in . vt iison necision to senct tne
Secretary of State to California was
reached after a conference with Mr.
Hryan to-night The Secretary had
listened In the course of the afternoon
to the Japanese Ambassador, Viscount
Chlnda. voice the grave concern of his
Government over the situation,
It Is regarded . certain here that
there have been serious developments
within the Inst few days, as yet not
made public, whloh have caused the
situation to ussitme" a much graver
aspect than that In which It at first
presented Itself to the President and his
advisers.
