STRIKE REMAINS DEADLOCKED
Jtailrouds and Firemen Not Able to
Agree Judge Knapp's I'eaco
Mission.
New York, Fob. 17. A deadlock con
tinues between the representatives of
tho fifty-four eastern railroads and Uio
committee of the Brotherhood of Loco
motive Firemen nnd Engiuemen over
the question of a strike. Action by
either side, It Is understood, will be
deferred until the arrival In this city
of Judge Martin A. Knapp of the Unit
ed States court, who has been acting
us a mediator. Judge Knapp made u
hurried trip to Washington. Much
significance is attached to It.
There is nn impression that Judge
Knapp may have a new solution to
propose for the ending of the differ
ences when he returns. When he left
for the capital Judge Knapp said he
was leaving to attend to Important
matters pending before the court The
railroad officials and the men believe
he was In consultation with some of
the Washington otllclals on the im
pending strike situation.
Differ on Arbitration.
The committee of the union, which
represents 38.000 men, and the olii
cials of the roads are willing to arbi
trate, but each Insists on a different
method. The committee wishes tc ar
bitrate under the Erdman act which
calls for, a board of three members,
while' tho railroads are Insistent that
six men be appointed to hear the
grievances.
W. S. Carter, the president of the
brotherhood, said In his headquarters
at tho Broadwny Central hotel that
the men do not wish to strike, but that
It looks as If he railroads want one.
He declared further thut It looks as
though they are going to get one un
less they back down on the arbitra
tion question. The men oppose the
arbitration committee of six proposal
because they do not believe It will bo
a fair arrangement for them.
There Is so much nt stake both for
the men aud the railroads and also for
tho public that on both sides It was
admitted that the feeling prevails that
some sort of a compromise will be
reached that will eliminate the danger
of a strike.
A cessation of work by the firemen
would virtually paralyze the business
of this country tills side of the Missis
sippi and seriously affect that on tho
other side. It would result In tho
greatest industrial tie-up in the his
tory of the United States.

"GOOD-BYE MOTHER,
GOING AWAY."
Note Left by George Hnyward to
Broken Hearted Mother Went
Away Without Giving Any
Kcason.
The sudden disappearance of
last, has caused great anxiety on
the part of his mother, who Is almost
frantic with grief. His many friends
have also become alarmed by his
Btrange action. "Good-bye mother,
I'm going away," was written on a
piece of paper and placed where his
mother kept her money, realizing
perhaps that she would surely find It
In that receptacle. This was Mrs.
Hayward's first Intimation of his
action.
George purchased a one-trip tick
et to New York last Thursday af
ternoon and went as far as Lacka
waxen with Conductor Charles Lord.
Mr. Lord says ho did not notice
whether young Hayward stayed at
Lackawaxen, went to New York or
took a Western train.
'Before leaving .he withdrew his
earnings from the bank with the ex
ception of a few dollars. He has
been In tho employ of Blrdsall Bros.,
Seelyvllle, which company held him
In highest esteem.
His going away is one of the'
greatest mysteries on local record
and there Is not the slightest reason
why George should leave homo. He
had all there was to live for. A
Christian mother and pleasant home,
ideal young men and women as com
panions and a bright future as ap
parently before him. Notwithstand
ing his sudden disappearance and
brief message to his heart-broken
mother she still keeps the latch-
string open and hopes against hope
that her son will return to her. It
is indeed a lamentable case and one
in which the mother is deserving of
the sympathy of the entire commun
ity. She is now left alone.
During the past few weeks George
has been the subject of melancholia
for some reasons and this may
account for his actions. He has al
ways been active In church work and
Is the last one that It would be sus
pected of for doing such a thing.
His friends are doing their best
to locate him and endeavor if possi
ble to get him to return to his en
dearing mother who anxiously
awaits his return.

Utlca division train at Blnghamton
Friday of last week and Officer Don

ticed them, and realizing, perhaps,
that they were strangers in the city,
he inquired of their destination. The

and his wife were on their way to
Buffalo, and Officer Donahue escort
ed tho couple to one of the day

ried and produced a corncob pipe.

pipe from one of his pockets. The
pipes were tilled and lighted ana

contentedly as the train started.
BULL MOOSE AND TAFT
ADHERENTS DROP FIGHT.
With practically all of the differ
ences adjusted at meetings of com
mittees by the leaders of the so-called
"progressive" and "regular" 'factions
Michigan Republicans recently in
state convention nominated candl
dates for justices of the Supreme
Court and imlnor offices to be filled
at the spring election and adopted a
platform that contained every plank
of the "progressive" delegates had
asreed to Insist upon.
"Harmony" proved the keynote of
the convention. Allen H. Frazer of
Detroit, the temporary chairman,
urged It and so did the permanent
chairman, Senator Frank James of
Hancock. "Get together and fight
the Democrats" was the appeal both
men made to tho convention in their
keynote speeches. Both urged the
adoption of a platform containing
"progressive" legislation. During
the last presidential campaign Fraz
er supported Taft while James urged
tho election of Roosevelt.
For use in the erection of what
will be the largest concrete bridge In
the world, tons of cement are being
rushed to Nicholson by the Lacka
wanna Railroad company. Abut
ments and false work are now being
placed In position, and it is expected
that a start will soon be made on the
concrete work.

PUBLIC AND PRIVATE BUILDINGS
Are You More Observing Concerning
Buildings Than Human Beings?
Now For Two More.
How are you at guessing buildings
Instead of persons? There is a con
siderable difference but structures
that you pass every day ought not to
be as hard to guess. No. 1 presented
by Miss Crescentia O'Connell was an
excellent descriptive sketch of the
court house. Did you guess that
right? No. 2 by Miss Jeanette
Pohle, "A Honesdale 'Building," was
the Union station. Did you guess
aright? AVe are giving you two
more to-day. Read them carefully.
A Building in Honcsdnlo
By Frances Caufield.
Situated close to the side walk on
Honesdale's most important street
is a large red brick structure which
faces, the rising sun. It Is extensive
ly ornamented on the front with
stone which forms an arched door
way. The upper part of the build
ing Is so Shaped that in the center
is a small porch-like space across
the front of which Is a stone railing.
On one side is a large window, tho
lower part of this being guarded on
the Inside by iron grating. Looking
toward tho lower side of tho build
ing several oblong windows can bo
seen. All these are entirely covered
by an iron grating. Extensive im
improvements have recently been
made on the building for the conven
ience of the public. The upper half
Is used as a hall for one of the city's
protectory Institutions. Very near
this building Is situated one of
Honesdale's largest manufacturing
plants, as well as many other busi
ness places.

A Houso in Town.
By Jennie L. Barnes,
About half way down one of our
principal streets stands a large
three-story brick house, painted
stone gray, with a sloping, almost
fiat roof, from which project four
tall chimneys. In front of the .house
Is a long porch, the roof of which is
upheld by many curiously carved
columns. The windows which look
out upon this extend almost to the
floor, and, like the other windows of
the building, are protected by dark
red blinds. Those of the third story,
however, which is very low, are
small and nearly round, and under
tho eaves and In tho cornices of the
house are the carved designs to
match that on tho columns. At tho
left of the building Is a porch similar
to the one In front, but smaller.
which overlooks a large, smooth
lawn, in tho center of which a foun
tain shoots up a silvery stream of
water. Near this are several ever
green trees which In tho winter
brighten up the otherwise rather
dull scenery. There is a secluded
air to tho house, and Its apparent
ace fills the imagination with
strange stories of bygone days.
