Hay Bo Emulated.
Members of twenty-four families at 357
Hinsdale street, Brooklyn, arose yeater-'
'lay convinced that they were to bo dis
possessed from their homes to-morrow
by a city marshal and his "schleppers."
They went to bed last night harpy In the
assurance that they could stay right
where they are under lease for the next
nine months. And they rot much Joy
out of the fact that their rent will be
less than the figure demanded by' their
landlord before they Joined in the ten
ants' strike and he decided to put them
The man who dissipated the tenants'
domestic clouds and caused tho sun to
shine for them was John Jerome Itooney,
once writer and ex-presldlng Judge of
the New Tork State Court of Claims.
Judge Rooney composed "Right Makes
Might," the official hymn of the city of
New Tork, and It Is understood he
hummed the hymn softly while engaged
m official fixer in this particular land
Just how the lawyer who wrote 7Th
Man Behind the Gun" during the Span
ish-American war succeeded In inducing;
the landlord and his tenants to kiss and
make up was not made public. It was
announced, however, that the tenants
were terribly tickled and that the land
lord was so pleased over his change of
heart that he said he hoped other land
lords would co and do likewise.
Hears Brownsville Committee.
Judge Rooney took his turn yesterday
afternoon at the headquarters of the
Mayor's committee on rent profiteering;
as a member of the Democratic organ.
Izatton'a law committee detailed to help
tenants ret a square deal. He received
a committee of men and women repre
senting; the twenty-four families In the
Hinsdale street house against whom
Louis Halperln, the landlord, had ob
tained warrants of eviction.
The spokesmen told the usual ttle of
Brownsville tenants' tribulations. They
explained that Halperln started In last
fall to boost rents from fifty cents to
1 a month until the rents of a three
room apartment had been Increased
from $1S to 20 and of a four room
apartment from 115 to $32. They told
of the refusal or tenants to hand up an
other cent and of their unanimous docl
slon to go on strike. They related how
the landlord had gone to court to have
them dispossessed so he could fill up tho
house with tenants who would pay In
creased rents and all were sure they
dICn t know what they were going; to
do if they were put out on the street
Judge Rooney next had a heart-to-
heart talk with Halperln. It was a long
distance chat over the telephone. The
lawyer reminded Mr. Halperln that he
(Halperln) was one of a committee of
eleven from the Brownsville Landlords
Protective Association who called upon
Chairman Nathan Hlrsch of the Mayor's
committee on Friday and promised to
cooperate with the committee in rellev
in some of the existing; abuses. He
made a first class argument based on
the law and the heart
Mr. Halperln was willing to meet his
tenants in a spirit ox compromise. He
was rlad to do what was fair, he said,
Peace Treaty Follows Trace,
After many suggestions and much
weighing of various proposals, Mr. Hal
rutin and his fighting tenants agreed to
an armistice, prompuy rouowea ty
hastily drawn treaty of peace based on'
these less than fourteen points:
The eviction, scheduled for to-morrow,
will be called off, the tenants to
pay one-half of the marahnl's fees.
The tenants agreed to sign a lease for
nine months, beginning May 1. (Up to
date they have been monthly tenants.)
nent for a four room apartment will
be 111, Instead of til. as demanded and
for a three room apartment $H, instead
According to Capt Charles A. Gold
smith, U. 8. N.. retired, chairman
Hlrsch's field agent, who took a leading
part In tho negotiations, Halperln de
clared his belief that by settling ami
cably with his tenants he might be able
to do some pioneer work for other landlords.
Chairman Hlrsoh announced yesterday
that lh Mayor's Committee on Rent
Profiteering has decided to create a sub
committee to be known as "the Commit
tee on Mediation and Conciliation." The
work of the members, Mr. Hlrsch said,
will be to make wherever possible
Drooer settlements between landlords
The wide publicity this suDject nas
received." Mr. Hlrsch said, "haa given
the publlo a fairly clear Insight Into the
actual conditions vravaumg. una re
sult has been that lb many Instances
both the landlords and tenants have de
cided that mediation Is the best way to
meet the situation. Excellent results
have been achieved where this has been
tried. Those to serve on the sub-committee
and further details concerning its
work will be made publlo early next
week after I have consulted with Mayor

TQ ARBITRATE TEXTILE STRIKE
Cohoes Plants I'robably Will nJ
open With -48 Hour Week.
Trot. May 10, The Cohoes Knit
Goods Manufacturers ut a meeting held
Isst evening decided to submit to arbl
tratlon the question of the carders' noon
hour work, and It Is hoped that this will
bring to an end tho textile workers' dis
pute over an eight hour day, which has
kept most of the mills In this vicinity
closed since February 1. The manufac
turers propose to grant the forty-tight
hour week with pay for' the same num
ber of hours, reopen their plants ana
have the carders work the noon hour, as
they formerly did.
This phase of tho dispute-nan held ud
the settlement of the knitting mill
trouble for several weeks, the bone of
contention, being the question of over
time pay for the carders. The commit,
tee of the textile workers will hold a
meeting probably this evening to con
sider the proposition, and it Is said this
morning that the manufacturer' props,
sltlon doubtless will be accepted.
