EFFORT TO SETTLE
Railroads and Engineers Agree
to Suhmii their DirTerences
iv International Nw 8rv1cc
NEW FORK, April 27. The fonlro
versv between the (nj-ineers and the
manager.-, of fifty eastern railroads',
trbich has been tbrenteninc a stnUe
for tbe Dafli two weeks, is still in sus
pension. It was planned that, the rail
road managers' Bub-eonunittee would
nave a conference with Commissioner
of Labor Neil and Judge Knapp, who
have b a aetine a mediators, but a
conference of tbe committee held be
forehand lasted so late that I ho media
tion meeting could not be held It is
scheduled now for early Monday morn
ing and the conference of Neill, Knapp
and lhe engineers will be held aceotd
iug to schedule la tbe afternoon.
The Question of arbitration, it is
conceded, has been agreed to ly both
sides, but with tiome modifications
frnin thp original proposal made to the
mediators by the railway manager-?.
The cumber of arbitrators and the
methods of procedure are matters yet
to be decided-
AJreadv the cost of the negotiations
to the Brotherhood of Locomotive En
gineers has reached about $10000. It
is estimated that the wages of tho
fifty-two chairmen of the engineer'
railway organizations, -which must be
paid by the organisation while on com
mittee work, their hotel and traveling
expenses while in this city approxi
mates $400 per day. Then Chief Stone
receives in salary and expenses about
$10,000 annually and hi assistant
chiefs about $5000 each, so that the to
tal expense of the lin.therhood is som(...
Ihincr in o.eo-s of SHoOO per week. In
the event of arbitration it is Baid an
adjustment of the matter tnav take one
to three months, so that the organiza
tion may have a further outlay of cash
of 10.000 to 130,000 before a eettU
ment is reached.

BOSfTON, April 27. Boston gae
Colonel Roosevelt tonight the
most demonstrative welcome he
has seen since the beginning of
his campaign lor the presidential nomi
nation. Speakincr in the arena before
a tumultuous throncr, the former presi
dent again criticised Mr. Taft. He.
however, did not repeat the severe de
nunciation which marked his speech at
Worcester la.st night. Tie spoke calmly
and devoted only a small part of his
address to President Taft.

paign of personalities between Mr.
Taft und myself.'' Sni Colonel Roose
velt. Last night I felt compelled to
answer Mr. Taft at length. Tonight T
shall refer to him only as I feci that I
Says He's Fortunate.
lT am more fortunate than Mr. Taft
in my friends. When Mr. Taft came
here Thursday be came here having
lost Illinois, I came here having lost
New Hampshire. In Illinois, Mr. Taft's
chief lieutenant hod been Mr. Tnrimer.
In New Hampshire, my chief lieutenant
was Governor Rass. Mr. Taft came
here to explain that he did not like Mr.
Lorimer, having Kept his dislihe pri
irate and confidential until after he bad
lost. Illinois. I came here, and say that
win of lose, I am with Governor Bas.". '
Holding up a sheet of paper, the col
onel said- "I've got two parallel col
amns hero, in one are my chief sup
porters, in Cue other, Mr. Taft's."
Among hi own supporters, the col
onel mentioned the western governors
who ashed him to run and Gifford
Admission Is Forced.
"Where's Perkins!" some one iu the
"He's for me," the colonel called
back. "Yon can't put a question to
me that will embarrass me for a mo
mont. You can search my record and
vou will find that I have never done
and I never wjll do for Mr. Perkins or
any other human being one thing 1
won't tell yon in detail."
As respecting Mr. Taft'fl supporters
the colonel named amid hisses from the
crowd Senators Lorimer. Penrose, Gug-
genbeim and Qallinger "Vou can
judge for yourselves on whose side the I
bosses are." he went on. "Mr. Taft
Bays I have accepted the support of
bosses. So I have when thev went my
way. But thov bad o go my way or
we parted company.
"That's all I have to sav of the
personalities in this campaign. J will
av that T will support any man so
long as he serves the people of the
United States and when he ceases to
do so 1 will not support him."
Colonel Roosevelt then turned to a
defense of his position in regard to tho
courts, repeating the arguments he has
made in the campaign.
Crowd Shouts for Taft.
The crow. I gathered near the arena
was so larce that tho police reinforce
ments bad to be called to handle it.
Pi nail 1 the doors of the arona were
barred. As the crowd before the
building en-TT several hundred men and
women attempted to storm the, main
entrance and In the rush a number of
windows were shattered. Fifty police
men charged the crowd and finally
forced the people back.
The scene within thy arena was a
tumultuous one. Before Colonel Roose
velt arrived a body of men in the mid
dle of the hall began to chant, "We
want Taft!" "We want Taft!" The
people rose to their feet with a shout
and 'or a few moments the ha.ll was id
Colonel Roosevelt spoke from a roped
in closure which is used as i prize ring,
It was the plat form from which Presi
