NEW YORK PILGRIM ENDS
VISIT HERE IN POLICE STATION
Blows Tin Whistle, Asks for 42d and
Broadway and Is Taken to 11th
Henry Hard man, of Now York, with a
fine fall suit and nearl-top shoes, blew
into town with a tin whistle. He was Im
mediately attacked with a feeling of ennui
when he tossed his magazine aside in the
Pullman and stepped on the hard boards
of the Broad Street Station platform.
He had never been hero before. So he
started out to give Philadelphia "the once
over," and then purchased a drink or
two, perhaps more, to get his bearings.
But tt appears that he lost them soon
after his arrival and finally lost him
self. While at 13th and Market streets
he asked several mere Phlladelphlans to
direct him to Hi and Broadway, "where
the world lived." Some laughed In his
face, others were sorry.
Finally, Mr, Hardman went out in the
middle of the car track and blew a tin
whistle. That was about 3 o'clock in tho
morning. Policeman Archdeacon hap
pened along, nnd, true to his name, talked
to Hardman in soft tones. It was use
less. Then he took the visitor to the Uth
and Winter streets station. Magistrate
Tracy listened to him this morning and
then sent him back to New York.
AXES USED TOO FREELY
Han Gashed and Saloon Window
Broken by Beckless Wlelders,
Axes used on. a man and a saloon win
dow resulted In one man being sent to
the House of Correction today by Mag
istrate Morris and another being held n
$S00 ball for court. The axes were pro
duced in .the hearing room as evidence.
The man held In bail for court is Au
gust Coy, 2113 North 18th street. He was
accused of attempting to hit Harry
Goodie, 2439 Cleveland avenue, over the
head with an ax a aondle stepped from
a. saloon at Broad street and Susque
Gondle threw up his hand to ward off
the blow and received a gash In the
wrist. He was treated at the Women's
Homeopathic Hospital. Follcemun Thumb
disarmed and arrested Coy,
The other man was William Foulkrdd,
2 McKenna's court. He played the part
of a Carrie Nation at 21th street and
lllds avenue, the police say, hurling an
ax through the window that narrowly
roieijed a number of men in tbe place.
Fciulkrod's motive was nothing like that
of Carrie Nation, however. The bar
tender testified the ax was thrown be
cause he refused the man a. drink.

FACTIONS PREPARING FOR
WAR IN A. F.
Battle Expected on Question of Changing Form of Organ
ization From Craft to Industrial Lines.
Although the two warring factions in
tho American Federation of Labor have
thus far envlnced little evidence of their
struggle on the floor of the convention,
that struggle is manifested in the heated
discussions which take place In the
lobbies of the hotels where delegates aro
Btaylng. It will later be carried to tho
floor of the convention In the discussion
of the probloms of principle and organi
zation which are expected to take place.
Already n resolution has been Intro
duced for tho reorganization of tho
American Federation of Labor upon in
dustrial lines, which means the reor
ganization of the federation on the basis
of Industries, Instead of crafts.
A long and bitter debate Is expected
on this resolution. Tho radicals, con
sisting of the progressive element In the
federation and the Socialists, maintain
that "craft" unionism has outgrown Its
usefulness, that it has become Impotent
in tho struggle of organized labor against
organized capital because It Is no longer
capable of wrestling with the complex
problems of Industry.
OPPOSED BY CONSERVATIVES.
The conservative element, with Presi
dent Samuel Gompers at the head. Is not
inclined to nccept this theory. Although
Gompers himself admits the wisdom and
necessity of Industrial unionism, the radi
cal element contends he has stood in the
way of its practical application now.
There are three or four large organiza
tions within the American Federation of
Labor which are organized on industrial
lines. Among these are the United Mine
Workers of America, with a membership
of 400,000; the Western Federation of
Miners, with a membership of 0,000, and
the United Garment Workers of America,
with a membership" of 100,000.
The International Association of Ma
chinists, the dgarroakers and the build
ing trades are also organized to a large
extent industrially, and a strong attempt
was made for the unification of all the
metal trades organized Into the Metal
Trades Department of the A. F. of U at
HELD AS "BLACK HANDER"
Samuel Itosensteln Accused of Tak

Samuel Rosensteln, 912 South 4th street,
was held today - in J1C0O ball,fora further
hearing November IS, by Magistrate Mac
Farland at the 2d and Christian streets
station, on suspicion of sending "black
hand" letters to Meyer Margolla, T3
South id, street.
Maraolls told the police few days ago
Tie bad been receiving letters regularly
for some time. The last demanded that

the convention of tho department In this
city the latter part of last week. The
subject was referred to a committee for
investigation and report.
The entire progressive clement of the
American Federation of Labor, however,
comprises only one-third of tho member
ship of the A. F. of L., the other two
thirds being organized along craft lines.
The "progressives" accuse President
Gompers and his followers of maintain
ing a backward policy of economic action
nnd political lobbying; the Gompers ele
ment contends that the progressives are
visionaries and would llko to bring
the millennium by a single stroke.
The progressives, aided by the Social
ists, contend that Mr. Gompers and his
school are "phrase mongers," that be
yond writing eloquent reports and dis
cussing problems which, In many cases
have nothing to do with the labor move
ment, they do nothing; that under tho
leadership of Gompers and his school of
"pure and simple trade unionism" the
American Federation of Labor has made
no strides for the last 15 years.
Mr. Gompers replies to this that the
American Federation of Labor is not to
be Judged by European standards, that
it Is a distinctly American organization
and must follow American lines of or
ganization and propaganda.
DIFFER ON POLITICS.
There Is also a wide difference between
the Socialist members and "the Gompers
school" on the questions of the political
organization of the working class, and
Gompers adheres to a theory of "reward
your friends and punish your enemies,"
The opposition contends that the workers
Bhould ba organized In a political party
of its own, having a distinct economle
policy and platform.
Mr. Gompers maintains that politics Is
a private matter and should not be in
jected into the unions.
The progressives or radicals are repre
sented by such men as Adolph Germer.
Duncan McDonald, John Walker and
Frank Hayes, all of the United Mine
Workers, and Joseph Cannon, of the
Western Federation of Miners. Tho con
servatives are represented by Samuel
Gompers, James Duncan, James O'Connelj
and John B. Lennon.

Old days along tho river front are to
bo revived. Within a few weeks n. fleet
of schooners will snll on trans-Atlantlo
voyages carrying oil In barrels. Tho de
mand for this product from Scandinavian
ports la so heavy, nnd the supply of
avallablo steamship- tonnago so light,
that oil exporters here, rather than Iobo
tho business, are making Inquiry for the
exportntlons of It in sailing ships.
The rates tho owners of tho schooners
aro asking is considered high, but It Is
believed shippers will bo compelled to
accept it. Plans for tho londlng of at
least one schooner wero made today.
In anticipation of the voyago across
tho Atlantic, masters of tho schooners
aro obtaining from tho Hydrogrnphlo
Office charts of tho sailing tracks, the
Dover Straits nnd tho English Channel.
They aro spending hours each day over
them, studying so tho navigating of tho
"big Btickers" will not be difficult when
tho buslnoss starts.
It lias been nearly a quarter of a
century slnco a Schooner left here bound,
for a European port and none has como
hero in tho laBt decade.
Tho principal work of schooners has
beon tho carrying of catgocs along the
coast from Novla Scotia to Gulf ports.
This trado in tho last few months has
been stagnant. Vessel owners wore fac
ing a poor season until tho call camo
tor trans-Atlantic voyages.
At first they wore skeptical at accept
ing any such voyages, as tho risk was
considerable. Tho skippers of the ves
sels now In port havo importuned tho
owners to accept tho freight. This, it
is belloved, will bo done.
Captain Olsen, of tho American ship
John Ena, ono of the biggest square
rigged vessels under tho American flag,
has been approached for a trans-Atlantio
voyage. Ho haB wired tho owners at
San Francisco and Is now awaiting a
reply. In tho mearitlmo he will carry the

Franklin Matthews represented a

war, and one day succeeded in break

reaching Field Marshal Oyama. The
Interview was brief, but extremely
courteous, and the Jubilant correspond-

"Marshal Oyama presents his com

"and regrets to inform tho esteemed
correspondent that his honorable letter
cannot be forwarded as written."
'Why. what's wrong with It 7" cried
the amazed war scribe.
Captnin Kanaka explained with do.
"Marshal Oyama," ho said, "objects
to having the great American public
regard hlra as baked mud."
