FATHER VAUGHAN WILL
GIVE RETURN LECTURE
Great Dramatic Orator Will Give An
alysis of "The Merchant of Venice"
inf Teachers' Club Course.
A return visit from Father Vaughan,
the dramatic orator, who splendidly
demonstrated when he opened the\
Teachers' club course on the evening of
Nov, 2, that, he is one of the few great
Shaksperean interpreters of the day, is
announced by the club for Monday
evening, Nov. 19, at the First Baptist
Because of the general interest among
students and people of discriminating
literary tastes in Shakspere 's plays,
and also because of the years of dra
matic training which have made Father
Vaughan particularly entertaining in
^Shaksperean roles, the club selected
Father Vaughan's lecture on "The
..Merchant of Venice" for the second
fevent of the course.
I The Teachers' club has been gener-
'*lly congratulated upon securing Fa
ther Vaughan for the first two lectures
of the season. The first lecture was en
joyed by more than 1,000 people, and
the impersonations of great Shaks
'perian characters were considered the
finest feature of it. His second lecture
,1s even more attractive and promises to
deepen the favorable impression which
the great orator made on his first ap
pearance in the city.
Father Vaughan looks upon "The
Merchant of Venice" as a satire on
Christianity,, and from this original
point of view, the play is considered

YESTERDAY IN CHICAGO.
Railroads Grant Increase of 4 Cents an
Hour, and Menace of Walk-Out Tying
Up Twin City Lines Is Removed
Credit Due to Minneapolis Men.
There will be no switchmen's strike
Prank T. Hawley, president of the
Switchmen's Union of North America,
telephoned from Chicago last night to
Bobert J. Martin of Minneapolis, chair
man of the adjusting committee, that
he had reached a satisfactory agree
ment with the general managers of the
The wages of all the men involved
will be advanced 4 cents an hour with
the exception of the night yardmas
ters, assistant yardmasters and switch
tenders, whose claim will be adjusted
Monday. This means that, on the basis
of a ten-hour day, day helpers will get
$320 a day, day foremen $350, night
helpers $3.40 and night foremen $3.70.
Overtime will be paid at the same
rate. These are substantially what
were asked by the switchmen in the
first instance, and the arrangement is
said to be satisfactory to the union.
For three weeks a committee of sev
enty-five, drawn from all parts of the
country, with Robert J. Martin of Min
neapolis for its chairman, has been sit
ting in St. Paul and attempting to ad
just all difficulties without calling a
strike. Last Wednesday a strike order
was prepared but it was withheld at
the request of the general managers of
the roads involved. Yesterday Presi
dent Hawley met the general managers
in conference at Chicago and they drew
up terms of peace. His telephone mes
sage to Mr. Martfn was the first inti
mation received here that what threat
ened to be the most serious strike in
the railroad history of the United
States had been averted.
"Credit for this victory belongs to
President Hawley and to the twin
cities," said Mr. Martin last night.
"It was President Hawley's diplomacy
which brought about a meeting between
_!.. J.& sub-committee of the S. U. N. A. ad
committee and a sub-commit
mee lagreemennt wa
ti Dr that the reache
yesterday arose. Minneapolirso hadt the
lion's share in this work, as it was
represented on this committee of six by
M. R. Carroll and myself.
"This agreement means that all dan
ger of a strike is at an end. By its
terms it can be changed only by mutual
agreement and cannot be terminated by
either party without thirty days' no
tice. This notice clause means that in
any caes there must be a conference,
and our experience shows that a con
ference is more likely to lead to an
agreement than a strike.
"Never before has an employees' or
ganization been given the attention by
the railway officials of this country
that has been given to the Switchmen's
Union of North America. The doors of
the general managers have been open to
us at all hours and they have always
been ready to listen carefully to our
side of the case. This is something new
in the history of railroading.
Strike Order Was Beady.
"For years the switchmen have been
looked upon as the most radical element
among railway employees, but I think
that they have shown themselves in a
different light this time. Tho the boys York secretary, of the National Con-
in the yards were anxious to start ferenee of Correction and Charities,

With election exeftanu-nt out of the

Yesterday Secretary Shaw, after
consultation with the officials of the
supervising architect's office, decided
that the hearing could not be postponed
and telegraphed Mr. Nelson that the
Commercial club representatives would
have to be present on Monday. The
reason given was that Secretary Shaw
wishes to settle things at once, as many
options on blocks south of Hennepin
avenue expire early in December.
Washington dispatches further contain
the announcement that "William
Henry Eustis will remain in Washing
ton to appear on Monday and argue
for a south side site.''
Secretary Shaw will receive a vig
orous telegram tomorrow from the
interests friendly to the Pence site.
The telegram will state that the Com
mercial club had no knowledge that
anybody else was to be heard on Mon
day and therefore does not see why
others should be allowed to have any
thing to say on the date set for the1]
