Philadelphia, June 'Id. "With ail the work
preliminary to tha entertainment of the
national Republican convention and its
attendant throngs practically accomplish
ed, Philadelphia is now contentedly await
ing: her visitors. Prom the big conven
tion hail down to r.he smallest detail,
those charged with the responsibility feel
that they have the situation well In hand
and the completeness of the preparations
seem to justify the belief. As yet, how
ever, the hospitality of the city is by no
means taxed. There have been very few
arrivals and the lobby crowds at the ho
tels are composed principally of those per
sons interested in the Contests with which
the, national committee is wrestling on the
breezy tenth floor o' the hotel Walton.
The fakirs with badges, buttons and
souvenirs made their appearance in scat
tering flights tvxlay ajid decorations are
b'-$;uinin to appear sporadically. . The
great mass of delegates are not expected
to arrive until Saturday and Sunday. The
most interesting tveriL in the national
committee so fr was- the seating of the
Warmouth delegates from Louisiana, after
a vtry spirit-d contest, occupying near
ly all day. This is an overthrow for the
iederai office holders of Louisiana, ten
of whom were on the delegation headed
by V, imberley, the collector i f the port of
New Orleans. Although Wlmberley is a
member of the national committee, and
made trie strongest possible presentation
of the case, tlte committee, by a vote of
Si to is. declared tn favor of his oppo
nent. Aniornr the men thus denied scats

Flan to Eliminate Sympathetic
Strikes From Labor Troubles.
ChlcagcJune 15. Sympathetic strikes
are to be a thing of the past if a plan
of arbitration can be agreed upon by
the Building Trades Fnion and the as
sociation associated with the Building
Contract council. A declaration to this
effect will come today from the dele
gates who participated In th joint con
ference with the contractors on Tuesday
I and Wednesday, and who were in secret
i caucus all of yesterday denatir.g a plan
for the settlement of the labor trouble.
I It was agreed practically by the dele
gates that the demands of the contrac
tors for aoontion of the sympathetic
strike was one which could be granted
without detriment to the case of labor
and a. committee was apopinted to pre
pare a resolution which would give for
mal expression to this sentiment. A sub
committee was formed to draft a com
munication to the building contractors
council on the same subject.
- The sub-committee will send to the
building contractors council today a
general statement of the position of tha
delegates on the sympathetic strike. It
will declare as near as can be learned
that the sympathetic strike should be
abolished. At the same time the sub
committee will reaffirm the determina
tion of union labor to preserve the
building trades council.
The arbitration plan which has been
drawn up provides for the establishment
of a permanent arbitration board ar.l
also a board of appeals, which shall act
speediiy and adjust every difference
promptly as it arises. Pending the
finding of the board work shall continue
uninterruptedly. In this way strikes
and lockouts will be eliminated and in
no case will building be delayed.
GIFT TO MINERS.

J. Devlin Provides a Hospital in
Pittsburg District
C. J. Devlin, president of the Mount
Carmel Coal company and the largest
ccal mine operator in Kansas, has ded
icated a 40 acre tract of land between
Pittsburg and Frontenac to the coal
miners of southeastern Kansas for hos
pital purposes. A new hospital to cost
$12,000 will be erected on the site this
year, and most of the money to build
it will be given by Mr. Devlin. It will
be in charge of the Sisters of St. Joseph
of Wichita. Bishop John J. Hennessey,
of Wichita, has charge of the enterprise
and is laying plans for a model hospi
tal. At present the miners of the Pittsburg
coal district have no hospital facilities.
Whenever one is so seriously injured
that a surgical operation is necessary
he must be removed to Kansas City.
Topeka or some other far away polr.t.
In many instances the miner is not in
financial condition to remain at home
auring a sick spell. Accidents are very
frequent in the mines and sickness is
quite general among the miners and
their families. It was on account of
the poor facilities afforded the miners
and their families for treatment in ease
of accident or sickness that suggested
to Mr. Devlin's mind that a miners'
hospital would be a good thing.
Mr. Devlin in his various mines em
ploys over 10,000 miners. He is a great
friend of the miners and never has any
trouble with them. It is said that he
was never sued by a miner in his life.
During the labor troubless in the Pitts
burg district during the past IS months
his interests have never been involved
nor in Jeopardy for a single moment. He
took the miners' side in the controver
sy. When President Reese was sent to
Jail for contempt of court and took an
appeal to a higher court, Mr. Devlin
went on his bond and employed counsel
for him to fight the case.
When asked about the matter Mr.
Devlin urged that his name be not men
tioned in connection with the proposed
new hospital. He is extremely modest
and never believes in parading himseif
or his deeds before the public. He ad
mitted, however, that he had given 40
acres of land for hospital purposes an.l
that a fine hospital, well equipped. wouid
be erected. After its establishment, h
will pay a large portion of the cost of
maintaining it. The miners will proba
bly pay a portion of the cost of main
tenance, also. The tract of land, aside
from a site for the building and
grounds, will be used to raise garden
truck for the hospital.
