AGREEMENT ABOUT AS
The agreement reached at the night
Jonfcrenco Is prnctlcallj the name as the
"proposition made last Saturday to the
packers by Mr. Donnellv. The only dif
ference Is that in Saturdays communica
tion Mr. Donnelly Insisted that the strik
ers be all taken back to work within seven
davs. This the packers refused, although
they agreed to accept every other demand
made by Mr Donnelly.
When the men return to work It will be
under exactly the same conditions as pre
vailed before the strike was declared, with
the exception that the question of a wage
scale will be decided by arbitration The
old wage scale, under which the union
worked last vear, expired May 23 Since
that time numerous conferences hav e been
held between the packers and the union
in on effort to settle upon a new schedule,
but without avail.
Nine davs ago It wa decided to call a
strike In order to bring the emplojers to
terms, rive hours after the strike and
been called, Mr. Donnelly received a
communication from the packers offering
to arbitrate the whole difficulty.
ment among Republicans and has led him
to make mistakes that would liaie pre
vented his nomination If the Republican
party had any other available candidate
"As It was. however, he had virtually a
walkover and the Democrats were entire
ly out of the running until Judge Parker's
telegram to W. V. Sheehan at the St
Louis convention revealed to them that
tl.ey had a candidate possessed of strong
sense and statesmanship.
"Before his ultimatum was delivered, it
was said In the Herald that Judge Paiker
was the servant of the Democratic pnrtv.
not Its mieter. His telegram on the gold
question proved the contrarv. It showed
that the Democrats who lnd nomlmted
him. believing him to be King Log. had
really chosen King Stork.
"What the Democrats needed was a
master The have found one In Judge
Parker, and he mav jet lead them out of
the wilderness "

Jefferson Cltv, Mo, Jul 20 Despite
ever effort of Mr. Cook's friends to re
new confidence in his ultimije nomina

tions confronted him to-night.
One is that man of the delegates op
posed to Cook, but Instructed for him, do
not Intend to vote for him until the sec
ond ballot. Unless 'plans are changed,
these delegates will remain out of the con
vention when the first ballot Is taken
Others who are Instructed for Cook, but
are opposed to him- will do the same thing
on the second ballot. Practically all Uf
the delegates In this category believe thit
one vote for Cook will carry out their In
structions. If this plan Is worked, as one of the
chief anti-Cook leaders said would be done.
It Is difficult; to see how Mr. Cook can be
nominated. It Is a way of keeping irstruc
tlons and at the same time preventing
Mr. Cook's nomination.
It Is claimed that there are more than
100 Cook Instructed delegates who are not
for him and who will carry out this pro-

"We do not believe our dutj is limited
