BOSSES' ASS'N HORNS IN AND
PUTS CRIMP IN THINGS
When the Employing Lathers'
Ass'n tried to "horn in" on the peace
meeting between the union lathers
and the individual boss lathers the
meeting broke and the result was a
failure.
The lathers have made it plain to
the Employing Lathers' Ass'n that
there is only one basis upon which
peace can rest and that is an. indi
vidual agreement with each con
tractor. As long as the employers'
association insists upon the joint ar
bitration agreement the union men
will carry out their intention of
striking on April-15.
The plasterers, whose work fol
lows that of the lathers, refused
again to lay plaster over boards put
up by men who grabbed the jobs of
their striking brothers. The con
tractors are claiming that they are
violating their working agreement.
The plasterers say they are not sup
posed to work with nonunion labor.
The contractors have again failed to
"put one over."

CLAIM LINCOLN AND RUNNELS
TOO ILL TO TESTIFY
The two big men who head the
Pullman sleeping car company are
sick, so sick they can't think or talk,
so sick they can't come to Chicago
and answer questions before the U. S.
Industrial relations commission. That
jte what they say, and their doctors
send certificates saying it The two
men are Robert T. Lincoln, chairman
board of directors Pullman Co., and
John S. Runnels, president
Chairman Frank P. Walsh of tho
commission says it will be decided
today or tomorrow whether the two
multi-millionaires shall be compelled
to come to Chicago. It is known that
Lincoln plays golf every day, has at
tended meetings of the Pullman
board of directors the past few years,
draws a salary of $100,000 a year and
has his brain and tongue in fairly
good shape, so that he can testify if
he wants to. It may be inconvenient,
but it is not impossible for him to
come to Chicago and explain why the
son of President Abraham-Lincoln is
at the head of a corporation that re
fuses to let the workmen organize.
While the commission is quietly go
ing ahead with a real hearing, dig
ging into bottom facts, the Herald,
Tribune and News are all delivering
attacks on Walsh for his lack of "ju
dicial poise." The hearings at Hotel
Sherman are not enough of a polite,
pleased-to-meet-you, parlor affair to
suit these newspapers.

HAD SUICIDE ALL PLANNED-
MAY DIE JILTED
Miss Blanche Frahm grew despon
dent last night. She called to her
apartment at 449 Belmont av. a
young gentleman, said to be F. W.
Storey pf the Merchants' Collecting
& Adjusting Co., and explained things
to him. Then she called a doctor.
"Take the record on the table and
put it on the victrola," she instructed
Dr. L. Rose, 309 E. 47th str when he
arrived. "Then get me a glass of wa
ter." A plaintive Hawaiian love song
started and Dr. Rose went after the
water. He dropped the glass when
he heard a shot from the parlor, and
rushing in found Miss Frahm on the
floor with a bullet in her breast.
At the hospital where physicians
despaired of saving her life, Miss
Frahm said she had been jUted by
Arnzo Delroses, a musician, 946 Sher
idan road. The police are seeking
him in connection with her suicide
