PARTIAL VICTORY
WDH BYEN6INEERS
Board of Arbitration
Makes Award in East?
ern Territory.
FIFTY-TWO ROADS
ARE AFFECTED
Brotherhood Not Satisfied With
Findings, but Will Abide by
Them During Time Allotted.
Creation of Federal and
State Wage Commis?
sions Suggested.
Washing-ton. November J4. ?Thirty
thousand locomotive engineers on
fifty-two Eastern railroads gain a par?
tial victory in their demand for more
wages under the award announced C>
?lay by the board of arbitration. In Its
decision, however, the board holds that
the public, which had no voice in the
controversy and no choice but to abide
by the decision, had mire at stak?
than either engineers or railroads, sad
the report emphasizes the necessity of
plans to safeguard the public against
the possibility of future strikes, whose
consequences It depicts In sombre
vein.
Tt would be difficult to exaggerate !
the seriousness of such a calamity."
reads the report "It la safe It say
that the large cities of the East would
find their supply of many articles of
food exhausted wtthin a week. Of so
important a commodity as milk they
would have go more than a day's sup?
ply. If a strike of the character lasted
for only a single week the suffering ,
would he beyond oar power of descrip?
tion. The Interests of the public so
far exceed those of the parties to a
controversy as to render the former
paramount.
?To this paramount Interest both
the railroad operators and the em?
ployes should submit. To place a i
strike beyond the realm of possibility,
the board advocates the creation of i
Federal and State wage commissions. I
These commissions, the board suggests. '
should be vested with practically the
same powers over organized labor as
public utiliUes commissi ins now ex?
ercise over quasi-public corporations.
The Only sslatfasv,
"It Is the belief of the heard." con?
tinues the opinion, "that In the Last
analysis the only solution la te qualify
the principle of the free contract m
the railroad service.''
From this suggestion P. H. Mor
rlssey, the representative ?f the engl- j
Beers on the board, dissents.
While the award Increases wages
on some railroads and for some classes .
ef service, t holds that a general in- .
crease on all roada is not warranted. ;
The award dates back to May 1 last
and will hold for one year from that ?
date. Mr. Morrtssey. representing the .'
engineers, has already indicated doubt
as to Its renewal. In the past, with
several notable exceptions, the con- I
tracts between the roads and the engl- j
aeers have been renewed annually.
The attitude of the railroads as out- ;
lined in a statement to-day r.y Preei-.
dent Daniel Wllliard, ef the Balttmore 1
and Ohio Railroad, who represented the j
raiiroads on the arbitration board. Is
likewise Indefinite as to the future.
"My acceptance of the reward as a
Whole does not signify my approval
cf all the findings In detail." said
President Wllliard. He added that
"although ehe award is not such as the
railroads bad hoped for." nor such
as they felt Justified by the facts."
they now accept without question the
conclusion which was reached."
'The members of the board, of arbi?
tration were appointed by the Chief
Justice of the Supreme Court of the
United States: the a'nited States Com- ,
:nlssioner of Labor and the presiding 1
jadge of the United states Commerce
Court.

in Passages Leading
to Streets.
j Btlboa. Spain. November 24.?A ter?
rible panic waa caused tbia afternoon
I by the cry of "fire" at a moving pic?
ture show here. About fifty children
and others were killed. Only one wo?
man up to a late hour to-night had
been found among the dead- The
number of Injured is not known, aa j
m >et of them were taken home by
j frienda
The scene of the accident is a large
1 circus, which had been converted into
a continuous cinematograph show. As
the price of admission waa only 2
cents, the building waa crowded to Its
i utmost capacity, for the most part by
; women ana children.
The operator of the machine lost his
nerve when a dim Ignited and screamed
"Fire:" He was able to extinguish
the flame without difficulty, but the
effect of his cry was Instantaneous.
Almost every one* In the building
sprang up. Police and attendants were
powerless to control the panic-stricken
people and were swept away by the
surging mass which sought to fight j
a way to the exit.
Soros were knocked 'down and '
trampled and many were crushed to'
death in the passages from the gal- I
lerfes to the streets. The disaster
caused frenzied citizens to gather ont- j
side the building, and the authorities
had great difficulty in carrying on the
Work of resoue and extricating the dead
and Injured from the piles of wrecked
seats.
The manager and other employes
h.tve been arrested and are held pend?
ing an Inquiry.

While Federals Oaim Many

ation in Revolution-Ridden
Republic Shows No
Improvement,
X?Zico City, November 24.?Not lea*
than twenty-five village- have been
destroyed in the State of Oaxaca in
th last ten days by Mexican govern?
ment troops. The administration, be?
lieving the rebels In that regten have
been sufficiently cowed by the terrible
warfare which has been waged, has
now sanctioned orders for the retire?
ment of the greater part of the Fed?
erals from the State, leaving th" final j
pacification to local troops. Some 500
Indians have surrendered, but a large |
part of these were without arms, af?
fording some basis for the unofficial j
declarations that little of real value
has been accomplished toward the sub- [
jugation of the rebels, who. It Is be?
lieved by the residents af the city of |
Oaxaca. will redouble their efforts, with
the added motive of revenge.
In aplte cf the fact that the Fed?
erals in all the districts Infested by
Zapataists have been' freely using the
right conferred by the suspension of
the guarantees to execute summarily,
there is little if any improvement in
the general situation. In no Us- than
forty engagements reported during the
last week the Federeala claimed the
victory, but these for the m >st part
have been Insignificant, since the reb?
els ordinarily retire as soon as possi?
ble, doubtless to save ammunition.
Two circulars have been Issued,
signed by Zapata One demands that
the owners of haciendas unite to con?
tribute 3.000 pesos a week to the rebel
cause in certain fixed areas: the it her
urges planters to hurry the work of
the peons on their plantations as much
as possible, because he will soon re?
quire all ablebidled men. Destruction
ef their properties la the alternative
offered.
Flans for withholding a large num?
ber of Federals from the north to Join |
the campaign against rebels !n the
south are maturing. Many volunteers ?
who enlisted to fight Orozco are being i
mustered out. having served the stlp- !
ulsted six months. Efforts are being j
made to maintain the strength of the j
army, however, and as ? result many I
prisoners are being drafted, and rebels
taken in battle are being forced Into
the gavernment ranks
Fifty soldiers of the Twenty-fourth
Infantry yesterday joined the rebel?
lion in the State of Mexico. They i
killed two captains and seized T oo*
pesos which the officers were bearing
to the brigade paymaster.
The government is not incl'ned to
regard the movements In Northern
Mexico seriouly. It Insists that the
situation throughout the republic Is |
much improved.
