RAILROADS CEDE POINT
TO 'RAILWAY FIREMEN
Offer to Arbitrate with Committee of
Five Men Still Busy Count
ing Ballots.
New York, Keb S. While the repre
sentatives of the railway firemen were
busy to-day in the Broadway Central Ho
tel counting tho ballots sent in by tho
firemen in tho referendum strike vote,
which ends on February 10, the railroads,
through Chairman J W. Lee, of the
railroad managers" committee, said they
expected no strike and also made a
concession regarding the proposed ar
bitration committee to settlehe lire
men's demands
The firemen have Insisted that if their
demands are to be arbitrated they Bhall
he treated under the Erdman law, pro
viding for a committee of three.
I ntll to-dav the railroads contended
that, as the third member chosen by the
nth.r two members of an nrdman law
committee reallj would be the deciding
factor, it was unfair tnus to mane one
man the arbiter of the affai-s either of
the liOOO firemen or tho 51 railroads in
volved in the dispute.
Now tho railroads express themselves
as willing to accept a committee of live
men. The railroads and the firemen, un-
dcr the railroad plan, are each to name
one man of this committee, and the Chief
Justice of the buprcme Court or the
Chief Justice or the Commerce Court the
tnree others
Chairman Lee and his associates bellev e
the firemen will accept an arbitration
committee of five. No provision has
been made to employ and train substi
tutes In case of a strike
A secret conference was held this aft
ernoon of the district chairmen of the
Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen. Out
of 20,000 votes cast about to per cent are
in favor of a strike.
A representative of Vice President E.
A. Ball, of the Firemen's Union, said
that the result of the referendum vote
surely will be known by 1-nday of this
week, and that by Saturday an official
peace or strike announcement would be
made.

ENDS FIFTY-YEAR FIGHT
Sixteenth Amendment Will Become
Part of Constitution Following -Proclamation
br Mr. Knox.
The Income tax amendment Is now to
all purposes a part of the Federal Con
stitution. Tho favorable action jesterday
by the Legislatures of Wyoming anl
Delaware brought the total of States that
have ratified the amendment up to thlrt
seven, one more than the necessary
three-fourths of the entire Union.
All that remains now for the culmina
tion of the process of amending the fun
damental law is for Secretary of Stato
Knox to Issue a proclamation certifying
that the required number of "States" have
acted favorably upon the amendment.
The amendment now ratified is the six
teenth to the Tcderal Constitution. The
last nmendraent adopted was in 1ST0. the
memorable flftti nth. which prohibits the
denial or abridgment of the elective
franchise on account of race, color, or
previous "onJillon of servitude.
The new sixteenth amendment is brief.
It reads as follows:
"Article XVI The Congress shall have
power to lay and collect taxes on In
comes, from whatever source derived,
without apportionment among the sev
eral States and without regard to any
census or enumeration '
The amendment terminates agitation tn
favor of this step that has extended
over half a century or more. An Income
tax law was passed during the Cleveland
administration, and It was at that time
that the United States Supreme Court,
by a vote of S to 4, held it to be uncon
stitutional. flare for Deriding Vote.
Another proposed amendment., that pro
viding for the direct election "of Sena
tors, is already on Its wav through the
state legislatures, and undoubtedly win
be added to the Constitution as the sev
enteenth addition.
Members of the New Jerscj delegation
In Congress seem to regret tho fact that
their State had not had the honor of
casting the deciding vote In favor of the
Imome tax amendment. Roth Wvomlng
and Delaware got busy as soon as they
learned that New Jersey was after this
honor. The result was that a telegram
was received from officials In Delaware
at 1130 o'clock yesterday morning, no
tifying the Senators from that State Jbat
Delaware had cast, the deciding vote. A
little, later word was flashed from Wvo
mlng and the Wvomlng Representatives
Immediately set up a prior claim to the
honor The Wyoming people rushed a
telegram to the Secretarv of State, notl
fjliig him of the action of the Legis
lature, but official credentials will be
necessary before Mr Knox can enter the
returns upon tie records. Inasmuch as
Delaware Is onlj a few hours away, that
State seems to have a strangle hold on
the honor, so far as the official records
will disclose
nil! Urine Tranird.
The Democrats were greatly pleased
over the linal ratification of the amend
ment The leaders In the House are al
readv at work on a bill providing for
an Income tax. Representative Hull of
Tennessee, a member of the Wajs and
Means Committee, who has fought for
an income tax for many vears. will be
the most active member of the House In
the framing of this measure
While the details of the Income tax bill
have not been worked out. Representa
tive Hulls own views on the subject are
well known In a speech delivered while
the proposed amendment was pending In
the House, he said that he would favor
a tax on the higher incomes onl, those
above ..0ft, with a differentiation be
tween earned and unearned Incomes,
prescribing a lower rate for the former,
and whenever aeemed advisable a rea
sonable "super tax" on Incomes over
KirtO Mr. Hull's plan to tax unearned
incomes would hit the Incomes from such
properties as the. Astor estate and An
drew Carnegie holdings. Mr. Hull has
estimated that we have In this country
more than 750.000 persons with Incomes
of $3,300 and upward
The thirtj -eight States that ratified the
amendment are Alabama, Arkansas, Ari
zona, California. Colorado. Delaware,
Georgia. Idaho. Illinois. Indiana. Iowa.
Kansas. Kentucky. Louisiana. Maine,
sippi. Missouri. Montana. Nebraska. Ne

A war of words is raging between the

The two most prominent women's Dem
ocratic organizations In the Capital, the
Southern branrh of the Wilson and Mar

Democratic League, are ut swords' points
over the festivities planned for the inaug
uratton of President Wilson. In these two
organizations arc the wives of many of
the most prominent Democrats In the

London. Feb i The big guns around
Adrlanople to-night awoke from their two
months slumbe- and proclaimed to the
world the futility of bargaining over the
vital interests of nations. Mustapha
Pasha, on the old Turko-Uulgarian fron
tier, a tremendous cannonade from the
direction of the besieged city was heard
soon after the hour announced for tne
expiration of the armistice. Some fight
ing, but no Important engagement. Is re
ported from the TchataIJa lines
While It is an undoubted fact that
hostilities have been resumed in accord
ance with the agreed terms of the armi
stice, there Is good reason to believe that
efforts for peace have not been relaxed.
Harold Spender, the well-informed writ
er, gives some hope of peace in the
Dally News He savs that during the
last twentj-four hours negotiations have
been proceeding between the Turks and
Bulgarians at Sofia These negotiations
are due to the efforts of the powers,
who brought very strenuous pressure to
bear on both parties
fettlrmrnt Proposed.
The policj of the powers is to bring
about a settlement by suggesting that
the Bulgarians allow the Turks to main
tain a branch of the Caliphate at Adrlan
ople. In other words, let the Moslems
retain the religious, but not the politi
cal, control of the city of Adrlanople.
Thus It will be possible for the Young
Turks to say they have gained a point
of substance and of honor. This will
save their faces. This point being set
tled, other questions can be easily ad
justed, the Balkan allies being willing
to make terms If they get possession of
Adrlanople. which is esserttial.

ring around the doomed city has been
drawn very close. The Bulgarians are
very strong In regard to heavy artillery,
One of the men told me: 'Our siege guns
are now strong enough to lay the forti

general belief, the taking of the town
has never been serlouslv attempted, and
