SETTLED AT LAST
Agreement Reached After Many Con
ferences. Provides for Wage In
Washington, Oct. 3.?A settlement
of the protracted wage and working
conditions controversy between the
Southeastern railroads and their em
ployes was reached late today. The
men, by the agreement signed, will
receive an average advance in wages
of approximately 10 per cent.
The rules and working conditions
on each of the roads remain substan
tially unchanged. Approximately 13,
000 employes, Including 3,000 negroes,
aro affected. They are conductors,
brakemen, baggagemen, flagmen and
yardmen, Trackmen and shopmen are
not involved. The agreement means
to the roads an increase In fixed
charges for operating expenses of ap
proximately $1,300,000 a year. As an
offset to this, assurance is given that
there will be on strike of the men and
that the working conditions now
agreed upon are fairly satisfactory to
the operatives and to the railroads.
Referred to Mediators.
After several weeks of futile effort
It was decided that the controversy
should be referred to the mediators
designated by the Erdman act?Pre
siding Judge .Martin A. Knapp of the
commerce court and Dr. Charles P.
Neill, commissioner of labor. For
ten days fie mediators have conferred
daily with both sides, wrestling with
one of the most obstinate controversies
in the history of such negotiations.
For more than a week it appeared
impossible for the mediators to bring
the opposing sides to anything ap
proaching an agreement.
Finally, a day or two ago. what
substantially amounted to an ultima
tum was made, looking to a settle
ment of the controversy on the basis
reached by the oPleials of the Chesa
peake & Ohio. Norfolk & Western and
Virginia railway with their men at
Clan Was Success.
This ray of light was followed and
the agreement signed today provides
practically that all of the employes of
the roads Involved shall receive the
same increases as were provided for
in the Norfolk settlement, except in
those cases where the wages equal or
exceed the Norfolk basis.
Kor the operatives the agreement
was signed by ?'resident Garrettson
of the railways conductors and Vice
President FitzpatricK of the railway
trainmen; for the railroads, by Horace
liaker. general manager of the Cin
cinnati, New Orleans & Texas Pacific
railway, chairman of the general
managers* committee, The railroads
were represented in the conference by
the genral managers of .udi line and
the men by Mr. Garrettson and Mr.
Fitzpatrlck and a joint committee of
nearly 200 others.
The roads Involved in the con
troversy were, the Atlantic Coast
Line, Alabama Great Southern, Ala

Pacific, Georgia Southern & Florida.

The Most Hazardous Calling.
Joseph A. Holmes, formerly of
I.aureus, has command, as chief of
the Federal Bureau of Mines, over a
body of men engaged In the most
hazardous occupation that men pur
sue. His mine rescue workers are ox
posed to a mortality rate far exceed
ing that braved by electrical linemen,
coast guards, submarine sailors, dcop
sc;i divers, or even aviators. Yet ?
and the fact shows how plentiful are
men of nerve?yet Dr. Holmes has
never had any difficulty In finding
men to undertake his desperate com
missions, but on the contrary, has
been embarrassed by the number of
applicants for admission to his corps
of oxygen-helmetod deep-land divers.

British Boat Cut In Two by Big Liner

Dover. England, Oct. 4.?Subma
rine "B 2" of tlio British navy was
run down and cut in two by the Ham
burg-Americun liner Amerika in the
English channel off the Kent coast
today and 15 officers and men who
were aboard the little craft were
The commander of the vessel,
Lieut. Percy B. O'Brien, was among
the victims, but his second in com
mand, Lieut. Richard I. Pulleyne,
was picked up after being a long time
in the water. He was the only sur
Lieutenant Pulleyne was found
floating in the sea too exhausted to
say more when he was rescued than:
"The submarine is cut in two. I
went down a mile."
The "B 2" had left Dover this
morning to participate with the other
submarine in a series of maneuvers.
The accident occurred an hour later,
although none of the sister subma
rines knew anything about it until
Lieutenant Pulleyne was picked up.
The young lieutenant collapsed
after he was taken from the water
and conveyed to the parent ship.
The Am' ka stood by after the col
lision and row life buoys overboard
while a number of torpedo boats, af
ter being informed of the accident by
wireless telegraph, searched the sea
for hours. None of the other members
of the crew, however, was found, and
no sign of wreckage was discernable
in tho vicinity. The Amerika then pro
ceeded on her voyage to Southampton
and Cherbourg on her way to Now
This is tho sixth disaster to British
submarines, each of them involving the
loss of from 11 to 15 lives.
At Greenville, Oct. 23rd. Great Spec
tacle of "loan or Arc" Added to
Ringling Brothers' Circus and new
ly added $500,000 spectable of ".loan
of Arc," will exhibit In Greenville on
Wednesday, October 23rd. The spec
tacle in Itself is an attraction that
should bring thousands Of visitors
from the surrounding country. It is
beyond question the greatest produc
tion of its kind over seen in America.
The world's most skillful scenic ar
tists. (Jostumers, property-makers,
chorus directors and stage managers
were engaged to mount the produc
tion. A stage bigger than a hundred
ordinary theatres was built and made
portable so that it can be conveyed
from town to town and erected each
morning in the main tent. Tims the
circus proprietors have made it pos
sible for those who live in contribu
tory towns as well as in the large cit
ies to see this magnificent wordless
play with Its cast of 1,200 characters,
n ballet of 300 dancing girls, a grand
opera chorus of 100 voices. 600 horses
and a train load of special scenery,
COStumes, properties and mechanical
devices for producing such stage ef
fects as thunder, lightning, storms,
Ores and the sound of battle.
In the old market place of Roen,
Prance .there now stands a monument
by which the French of today have
sought to redeem their part in the
execution of .loan of Arc. who on
May ::?f, 1431, was burned to death on
the false charge of Heresy after hav
ing delivered her country from the
English and having restored the crown
to Charles VII. History records but
the meager facts of this strange hero
ine of eighteen years, who led the
armies of France victorious through
English invasion, and then, deserted
by all, even the indolent monarch
whom she preserved, died by the cruel
est torture known with the name of
the master upon her lips. Unsung in
poetry the name of this simple peas
ant girl has conn* down through the
ages to be revered as that of a saint,
and whose wonderful powers and
whose bravery are verily believed to
have been of divine Inspiration.
On the triumphant Incidents, the
Vlctorlus engagements, the final de
feat of the Knglish armies, and the
coronation of Charles VII, all "achiev
ed by the frail .Maid of Orleans, has
been founded the inspiring spectacle
Which gives Ringling Brothers' circus
a new significance and makes an
attraction such as the world in search
ing for amusement has never before
The regular circus program is more
than ever attractive. Its company of
."575 foreign artists, its double menag
erie and its new street parade will
prove a great surprise' to those who
attend from this city. The event is
one that should not be missed. I I-lit
