Letters Walsh read to Hungerford
said that June 4, 1912, and again June
23, 1914, a petition signed by 75 per
cent of the conductors was sent to
President J. S. Runnels of the Pull
man Co. Hungerford said he had
heard something about the petition
but hadn't paid any attention to it.
He said there is plenty of opportunity
for a Pullman conductor or porter to
work his way up in the world. While
there are not many big jobs higher

want to climb upward and onward, he

JUDGES' RULING BRINGS LULL
IN LABOR STORM
Arbitration of the troubles of the
plasterers by Judges Gemmill, New
comer and Sullivan brought a tem
porary lull in the labor storm today.
The judges decided that the agree
ment signed Feb. 17 should have kept
the men on their jobs until their diffi
culties could have been settled.
The claim, of the labor men was
that when the lathers were locked
out the plasterers could not work
with nonunion men. The judges de
cided that the plasterers should have
been notified when their fellow work
men were shut out and that they
could not have worked under condi
tions as they were.
The success of the arbitration lias
caused the hope that the other nu
merous labor troubles may be arbi-
trated as well. Another meeting "will
be held at 10 o'clock tomorrow.
That a general misunderstanding
of the difference between the labor
men and their employers is the cause
of most of the trouble was the opin
ion of the judges. They advocated
publishing the claims of each partyy
so that the arguments could be
quietly reviewed and hasty action
"The board learns from the evi
dence )f all parties that the contract
controversy has not been generally
published, and we are unanimously of
the- opinion that that may have con
tributed at least to some extent to the
differences now existing, and we
would recommend that hereafter any
contract entered into between par
ties be generally published, so that"
each member of the respective par
ties may have a copy thereof, that
there may be no misunderstanding."
CLAIMS BIG MEDICALASS'N IS A

being a trustfi was filed by Dr. Sam
uel Summers of Washington, Pa., in
the federal court yesterday. Sum
mers says the association is unfair
and has blacklisted medicines which
he patented years ago.
The asscociation is called a "trust"
by Summers, who says that it is the
most powerful factor in the medical
world. A story in the journal of the
association in 1903 killed all chances
of success for his medicine, although,
he claims, Dr. Simmons, the man-'
ager, later admitted that the article
