Milwaukee.—The teamsters and the
team owners hauling ice for Joseph
Schlitz Brewing Co. struck for an in
crease of one-half cent per cake. The
demand was granted.
Boston.—Bridge and structural iron
workers struck for an advance of five
cents per hour. A compromise was
affected, two and one-half cents being
granted. Closed shop agreement went
into effect in three of the largest firms.
Cleveland.—The Canton-Akron Rail

three weeks. The men agreed to ac

The Lumbermen's Association and
the Lumber Teamsters' Union have

strike involving the lumber carrying of
Chicago. The demands of the men
After starting the three factories
equipped with glass chimney blowing
machines, the Macbeth-Evans glass
company has anounced that it will
install the same machines in the Pitts
burgh works and use them to the ex
clusion of the hand blowing process in
the future. The first three factories
that were supplied with the machines
were those of Ellwood, Charlerio and
Toledo, and it was there that a strike
was started by the Flint Glass Work
ers' union to keep the company from
working the costly machines to their
capacity, in order to keep the cost
above the cost of hand labor.
The strike lasted six months and
has resulted in the defeat of the labor
unions. The company denied that the
result of the operation of its ma
chines in the three factories, unre
stricted by union rules and dictation,
had been so successful that the future
of the business lay in the development
of that method, and the South Side
works, as well as those at Marion,
Ind., are to have them.
In the settlement of the strike at the
mines of the United States Steel Cor
poration at Slippery Rock the company
comes out a little ahead. It is ad
mitted that less than the scale was
paid for certain kinds of work, but on
others the scale rates were exceeded.
The management of the mines state
that they will be present at the next
joint conference of miners and oper
ators and have a scale arranged that
will give them the benefit of certain
natural advantages in the mining that
An agreement has been reached be
tween the Waiters' union and Dudley
Bros. & McNabb, and the union card,
which was taken out of the establish
ment about two weeks ago, will be re
placed this morning. The settlement
is on a basis of eight hours' work at
the same rate of pay as that called for
in last year's contract. In other
words, men who were receiving $12.50
for ten hours' work will receive $10
for eight hours' work.
Five thousand employes of members
of the Builders' Exchange League of
Pittsburgh were, notified by their em
ployers to cease work pending the sign
ing of the 1905 wage scale. Labor
leaders declare they have attempted
to effect a peaceable settlement. The
trades unions have declared for the
closed shop, while the employers have
pledged themselves to the open shop.
The teamsters' strike in Lynn was
settled by arbitration, the dealers
granting the men the nine nour day
demanded, and In turn have received
the agreement with the men that here
after no strike shall be called until a
sixty days' notice of the grievance
shall have been handed in. This agree
ment affects both sides.
The Fall River strike, which was set
tled in January, was one of the most
serious known in the history of the
textile industry of this country. It
lasted five months and twenty-four
days, involved eighty-two mills and
twenty-three thousand operatives. The
direct loss in money on either side can
not be accurately computed. It is esti
mated the total cost Is about eight
millions. The settlement was affected
by Gov. W. L. Douglas of Massachu
setts, the men going back to work at
the old figure pending an Investigation
of the cost of cotton and the selling
price of cloth to determine the aver
age margin of profit on which a wage
scale will dependent. The strike was
cne of the cleanest on record, having
been conducted with a quietness and
Orderliness all the more remarkable
when the Intense personal suffering in
volved is considered.
The Pennsylvania, railroad was
threatened with a strike which was
settled by a conference of the general
manager of the railroad and the grand
master of the Btrotherhood of Locomo
tive Trainmen. The question of com
pelling brakemen to act as firemen
was settled and a uniform wage scale
discussed. An Investigation on the
part of the company was promised to
remedy other existing evils. It is a
vindication of the business policy of
the union when difficulties such as
were present in this situation can be
forcefully and conservatively set forth,
discussed and settled by a joint confer
ence of the contending parties.
This Interborough Company of New
York were threatened by the Amalga
mated Association of Street and Elec
tric Railroad Employes with a strike
unless conditions Of labor in the sub
way were bettered. After a confer
ence the demands of the union were
granted, a new' schedule submitted,
and other union difficulties adjusted.

He was a thesplan, not a fisherman,
but his powers of imagination were
boundless. One day he was in espe

following tale will exemplify:
"I was once," said he to a crowd of
expectant listeners, "in a town in Cal

the hotel, when in rushed the manager
of a traveling company which was to
play at tht theater that night, and
said, though perhaips in more emphatic

'Weil, I'm blest!"
"I looked up and smiled. He saw my
smile and invited me to take another.
I promptly did so, and then he poured
forth "his tale of woe.
"His company was to play 'Hamlet'
that night, and the man who was cast
for the role pf the Ghost had suddenly
been taken ill. There wasn't any one
in the company who could take the
part at such a short notice. He was at
a loss to know what to do. The house
had been sold out twice over, and he
was afraid that were there any hitch
trouble would be brewing.
"I smiled—again at his expense, for
he was getting reckless. Then I open

Prom an Exchange:
John Maxwell, who had taken part
in the battle of Rulllon Green, Nov. 28,
1006, successfully defied the many at
tempts that were'made to capture him.
Once he had a very-narrow shave. The
soldiers traced him to Edlnburg and
there gave him a chase. Bolting down
a close, he dashed into a tavern and
explained his desiperate case to the
landlady, who locked him Into the
ohest that held the oatmeal.
The soldiers then entered and search
ed the house from top to bottom, but
could not find their man. Vowing they
knew he was on the premises, they
called for drink and sat down to think
over the matter. One of them, seated
on the box that contained the fugitive,
"I wouldn't say but the Whig is in
this very kist (chest). Guidwife, gie's
the key and we'll see."
In no way put about, the landlady
went to the door and cried to her girl

HOW HE GAINED ADMISSION.
From the Chicago Law Journal
One of Assistant Attorney General
Beck's stories at the Hardwicks so
ciety dinner in England was especially
appreciated by the students. A gen
eral in the Civil War applied at the
close of the conflict for admission to
the bar of the United States. A com
mittee of three examiners reported
that he had answered correctly two?
thirds of the. questions put to him. A
judge, astonished at the general's suc
cess, asked the chairman of the com
mittee What the questions were.
"Well," he replied, "the first was,
'What is the rule in Shelly's case? and
the "answer was, 'Writing poetry.'
That was not correct. When we asked
him what w&s a 'contingent remain

did not know. That was correct, and
