BUILDING AND ALLIED TRADES
ARE PUSHING THE MOVE-
New York, May 15. Yesterday's
developments showed that the em
ployers in the building and allied
trades in every large city in the coun
try are now likely to join with the
Building Trades' Association of Man
hattan and the Bronx in fight all
along the line against union labor.
A national federation of employers,
who give work to millions of men, may
he formed to take concerted action
against the union and to restore confi
dence to the building industry.
The board of managers of the build
ing trades' association spent Tuesday
evening and most of yesterday arrang
ing for the meeting to be held Friday
of all the associations of employers in
Manhattan and the Bronx to arrange
plans for fighting the demands which
three or four years of prosperity has
inspired, the l.bor unions to make. So
many applications ere received from
firms outside New York and Brooklyn
that the plans were changed. To
Admit Outside Employers,
the meeting will be one of 'delegates
only. "When it is over a larger meeting
of representative employers will prob
ably be held ir one of the largest halls
in the city to lake further action.

"If the meeting on Friday night is a
success, and I believe it will bo. it is
probable that a national federation of
employers will be formed to deal with
the extravagant demands of labor
unions. We have received applications
to attend the meeting from employers
in Chicago, Philadelphia. St. Louis,
Milwaukee. Boston and lmrhy orl'.er
cities which are centers of labor in
dustries. If such a national federa
tion is formed it will be an organiza
tion employing millions of men in all
branches of the building industry."

HORRORS COME TO LIGHT.
Jews of Russia Are Treated With In
St. Petersburg. May 15.Additional
details of the Kisheneff massacre of
Jews are printed here daily. The cor
respondents give the number of vic
tims thus far buried ^n.the Jewish
cemetery a.t forty-tour,, and say that,
eighty-four persons were seriously
wounded and are still in the Jewish
hospital. The horrors reported scarce
ly bear repetition. In one instance
spikes were driven through a woman's
head into the floor, and cases of bodi
ly mutilation have been authenticated.
About 800 to 1,000 persons were ar
rested, an energetic official having
been sent from Odessa to deal with
the situation. The apathy of the local
authorities during the two days of
rapine and murder appears to have
been fully established.
German Physician's Remedy Proves a
Berlin, May la.The announcement
made yesterday by the Berlin Medical
society of a new remedy for consump
tion called sanosin has attracted much
attention. Dr. Danelius of Sommerfelt
read a paper on the cure before the
society. He showed that a number of
patients, mostly workingmen, had been
cured of consumption, and said they
were treated without interference with
their work. The use of sanosin pre
vents coughing, fever and night sweats
and results in the patient gaining
in weight. Even in severe cases of
consumption the progress of the dis
ease'has been arrested.. The remedy
was discovered by Dr. Robert Schnei

Washington, May 15. Despite the
repeated statements by officials of the
state and navy departments that there
is no necessity for the strengthening

count of the Manchurian trouble, it
has been pointed out here as signifi
cant that four additional war vessels
have been ordered within the last

Jacksonville. Fla., May 15.The rain
which fell Tuesday assumed yesterday
niorning about daybreak almost the
proportions'of a cloudburst, and when
the citizens prepared to leave for their
places of business, many of them
found their homes completely sur
rounded by water. Many were driven
from their residences or forced to go
to upper stories by the water that In
some cases reached the. level of the
first-story windows. In all as much as
one square mile of the town was under
water. Full half a mile of Bay street,
the principal thoroughfare of the city,
was under water, and much damage
was done to stocks of goods. The
water was two feet deep in the waiting

amounting to $100,000. The lo'sseo of
