The second and last day of the arbitration and conciliation conference in session here and composed of practical and experienced men repre senting both capital and labor, was marked by the first speech of the con ference as unequivocally in favor of compulsory arbitration of labor dis putes. This speech was delivered by the ven erable Hugh II. Lusk, ex-member of parliament of New Zealand. Mr. Lusk received the closest attention, for while the great majority of other speakers dis agreed with him, deeming comuulsorv arbitration impracticable in this coun try, history of the success of the system in New Zealand aroused their deepest interest. Mr. Lusk. in reply to Mr. Gom pers' assertion last night that it was the laboring man's right under any and all circumstances, or merely because he pleased to strike, declared that Mr, Gompers was designating as liberty what should be called license. "In New Zealand " said the speaker, "we want no such liberty. We do not want to cause suffering among thousands of our fellow men because we please to strike. "The main features of the law now in course." he said, "are, lirst, that it rests upon the voluntary basis of associations, so that no individual, whether workman or employer, can invoke the assistance of the law unless in his capacity as rep resenting an organization duly regis tered under the provisions of the law. Thus trade unions are made in New Zealand the basis of compulsory arbitra tion. Second, that before compulsion is resorted to, every effort must be made to bring about an agreement by con ciliation, applied by a board equally rep resenting, through freely elected dele gates, workers and employers. Third, that, failing an agreement through the agency of the conciliation board, either party may, but neither is compelled to, appeal to the arbitration court for a final decision. Fourth, that an appeal to the court acts as a stay of all other proceedings, whatsoever in dispute; that is to say, that no employer shall close his works or dismiss bis workers, and no workers shall strike against the em ployers, in connection with the matters in dispute, until the question has been dealt with by the court, on pain of be ing treated as being in contempt and subject to fine and imprisonment. Fifth, that the arbitration court itself shall consist of three members, one represent ing the workers and one the employers' associations, while the third, and presi dent of the court, shall be one of the judges of the highest court of the coun try. There are many other provisions providing for the detail of working such as the time limit within which a case must be heard and dealt with by the court: the publicity of all proceed ings in the court; the appointment of skilled assessors in each case, and the powers of the court to compel the pro duction of all snch evidence as it con siders necessary, or, failing such pro duction, the power to assume that it is wholly adverse to the side refusing or delaying its production. All these, how ever, as well as the provisions for re ducing the cost of procedure by exclud ing lawyers from either party, may be looked on as secondary to the main piinciples of the system. "The trial, in externals at least, is less formal than one in the supreme court; yet the powers of this arbitration court are in some respects even greater. It is not bound by the same hard and fast rules of evidence as prevail in the su preme court, and it is specially author ized to exercise a discretionary power pot given to the more strictly legal court in several directions. The object of this latitude of procedure is to enable the court to arrive at a conclusion not only just but politic in many eases of dis pute, where strict justice might become oppressive to one or the other of the parties, or might fail to protect the pub lic interests involved in the dispute. The court, indeed, is emphatically one of equity in its broad, rather than in its legal sense; and thus it hast been found not only wise but necessary to rest large discretionary powers in its judges. "It would not have been possible for the capitalists of America or England to treat with greater contempt the ex periment of New Zealand four or five years ago than did the people of the Aus tralian colonies at that time. Associated workers, no less than the employers, pronounced It an utterly unworkable fad, which was equally opposed to the interests of both classes, and they con tented themselves with watching, with a supercilious smile, the foolish experi ment which was s"o certain to fail. Year by year, however, they have found that it did not fail. Year by year they have seen trade nourish and manufacturing energy increase- in greater ratio in New Zealand than it did among themselves. While they have had the usual number of strikes and quarrels, paralyzing trade and impoverishing the workers, they have seen that New Zealand was becom r3 PRESENTS- 500 ounces Reiger's Standard Violet at 45 C oz t 200 ounces Reiger's Rosemere at 45c oz jt i 1 1 li f i I isuuar vr ui lii 01 ix.eiger s LLIDAY DRCG Topeba, Kansas, ing more an attraction to the very best and most skilled of their own workmen, because it was not only a country where good wages prevailed, but one in which men were not in danger of being thrown suddenly out of work and forced to spend all they had saved to keep their families from starving in the next labor conflict. Less than six years' experience has been enough to convert two of the princioal colonies of Australia to the new experiment, and both New South Wales and South Australia have lately decided to try how New Zealand's ex periment will answer among their own people. "On the w-hole, therefore, it is only jus tice to say that the New Zealand experi ment ha, in its own country, and subject to the conditions for which it was de signed, been a success up to this time. It has put a stop to strikes and lockouts in its own countrv : it has given new stability to trade, and improved the position of the -workers so much that the numbers of hands employed in factories has very nearlv doubled itself since the law was brought into operation in. ls4: it has been the means of vastly increasing the prod ucts of the labor of the country: and finally, it has gradually reconciled both workers and employes to Its provisions, while it has led other, and larger commu nities to imitate a system that has done so much for peace and prosperity to the land of its birth. "One or two principles which lie at th verv foundation of the system cannot be ignored in considering its applicability to any other countrv than that in which it began. The most important of these is the principle, that the interests of every class in a community are regarded by the political reformers of New Zealand as secondary to those of the people as a whole, it Is no answer at all in hew Zealand to a complaint, that manufac turers are growing very rich while work men continue poor, that it is the inevilalile result of inequalities of position in the sociMl scale which elves one man cap ital and training in business and many men only their hands and natural intel ligence. The reply there is, that it is not good for the people at large that such dis parities should be encouraged, and there fore if the capitalists are making too much out of their business in proportion to the workers' share, the public thinks itself not only justified but bound to step in and assist in remedying the evil. "I have studied with deep interest for several years, and with a good deal of miseiving as to the future, many of the social and industrial conditions of this great countrv. I have admired, with no stinted admiration, its enterprise and en ergy, and the marvelous results which these have secured in so short a period. What I have not admired has been the social and political evils that seem to me to be proceeding with a growth that is quite as vigorous as the development of the countrv in other and more worthy di rections. The root of these evils seems to me to be found in the rapidly widening gulf between the classes of the rich and the poor or, in other words, between the capitalist and the workman. There was a time, apparently not so very long ago, when the line that divided these classes was one which was not hard to pass, and thousands of the capitalists of today have undoubtedly risen from the ranks of the workers. Conditions, as you all know, have changed, and are changing still more; and if things go on as thev are now going, the time cannot be distant when the line will be as hard to pass in America as it has long been in Europe. It appears to me that few greater misfor tunes could befall this land and its peo ple than this. "There was a. time when those who had the good things of the world might look on such a state of things with a selfish complacency, indeed, but that time is very nearly gone by. The salvation the only possible salvation of a wealthy class in the future among civilized men will Ite the well-being of all the classes which are a little less fortunate than itself, anil the consequent ease with which those below the line of wealth can hope to rise above it. To secure this I am convinced an ap peal will require to be made to a high standard of public interest, and not even to the enlightened selfishness of the peo ple directly interested on one side or the other. For this reason I entirely believe in the principle of the New Zealand law. It represents the public interference in tre.de disputes for the common -interest of all C' . vs : and it represents more than this .V--': the-recognition of the principle that society is charged, for its own pro tection, with the duty of seeing that jus tice is done to all classes of its people, even to the extent of discouraging the pnwth of riches in one class to the degra dation of the others. "I believe that here, as everywhere else, the settlement of trade disputes must in the end come to be the act of the whole people, acting through some kind of un biased court: and that the countrv- which is the last to recognize this will fall be hind in prosperity to the detriment of every class of its people. But I also be lieve that the people of America are not ready for It yet. Thev have still to t ry ot her substitutes for it. w hich 'may be of at least partial and temporary advantage. They have still to learn by experience that even if these improve "matters they will bear more improvement still. I trust that this convention will suggest some such improvements for trial: I "hope thev will find greater inducements to lead workers to associate in unions, and em ployers in associations, that so thev may be more easily brought together, arid vol untary conciliation and arbitration may be promoted. Above all. I venture to hope that one result of such a convention as this may be that representatives both of wealth and labor may recog ze the su preme necessity which exists in a great nation like this for the practical applica tion of the principle that no individual and no class can be, or ought to be, free from the control of the majority of the people in anything which concerns the public good. Upon such a recognition will follow here, as elsewhere, an increase of good feeling between classes, a new confidence in the justice of courts, and a prosperity- no longer naoie to oe crippled and over thrown by conflicts, ruinous alike to the well-being of those who take part in them and of the yet greater public, which is at present the helpless victim."

Mandamus Suit Commenced Against Judge Fischer. A mandamus proceeding involving a peculiar proposition of law has been filed in the supreme court, and final arguments will be heard at the next session. The preliminary writ allowed today is directed to E. L. Fischer, judge of the Wyandotte county district court, ordering him to sign a case made for the supreme court upon an appeal from a decision of his court. Henry MeOrew, of Kansas City, repre sented the plaintiff in a foreclosure suit. A trial was had before Judge Fischer, re sulting in a verdict and judgment for the defendants. The plaintiffs immediately took the nec essary steps to appeal the controversy, preparing a case made to whicli the de fense suggested an amendment including all of the evidence introduced at the trial. To this the plaintiff objected, refusing finally to admit the amendments sub mitted bv the defense. The controversy over the amendments was taken to the judge, who refused to sign the case made unless the plaintiff ad mitted the amendments suggested by the defense. To this the plaintiff took exceptions and has brought the mandamus proceedings to compel Judge Fischer to sign the case made without the amendments desired by the defense. DEAD "ROBBER FOUND. Cut His Throat After Haying Been Wounded. New Orleans.Dec.lS. Detectives found today the body of one of the robbers who on last Thursday night held up within the city limits of New Orleans the Chicago mail train on the Illinois Central railroad, shot Conductor Kin nabraw and made theor escape with a number of registered packages. The watch of Conductor KInnabrew. found on the dead man, leaves no doubt of his identity as the leader of the gang who held up the train. Shortly after the hold-up on Thursday night Officers Daly and Lucich, while hastening to the scene, discovered two men carrying a bag and walking rapidly between the Illinois and Mississippi Val ley tracks. The officers halted the men, but instead of surrendering, they began to shoot. Both officers responded and a lively fusilade followed. The men finally dropped a United States mail pouch and fled. Since then the detectives have be?i carefully examining the swamp near the city. At an early hour today their search was rewarded with the finding of a body. Late today the dead robber was identi fied as Channing B. Barnes, alias John H. Nelson, alias Josk Nelson. He was wanted for holding tip the Illinois Cen tral train near WTickliffe, Ky., last Julv and robbing the safe or the American Express company. His brother, Charles W. Barnes and Richard Doyle were con victed for this latter robbery and each is serving a sentence in the Kentucky state penitentiary. When the attempt was made to arrest Channing Barnes in St. Louis he. shit Chief Special Agent Mur ray and made his escape. When the body was discovered it was found that Barnes had cut his throat and evidently just died. His own watch and that of Conductor Kinnabrew were running. He had been wounded in the back and left wrist. Registered letters and dynamite were found on the body. AWAITING DEVELOPMENTS. Strike Stays Cluiet in Texas and Little Business Doing. Dallas.

Arguments in the Porto Rico-Philippines case, involv ing the status of those countries to the United States were resumed in the United States supreme court today. The widespread interest in the cases was shown by a large attendance of prom inent members of te bar and by a crowd of spectators which filled the public area and overflowed into the cor ridor. Senators and representatives in congress who had taken part in the Porto R.ico-Philippine legislation drop ped in as the arguments proceeded and gave attentive ear to the proceedings. Prior to the opening of the court the counsel conferred and arranged a gen eral plan of procedure, by which Ed ward C. Perkins, senior counsel in the Porto Rico case would conclude his argument today being followed by Law rence Harmon, counsel In the Philip pines case. The appellants would then give way to Attorney General Griggs for the presentation of the case in be half of the government. This it was ex pected would continue until tomorrow when Charles H. Aldrich, former solici tor general and senior counsel in the Philippines case will close in behalf of the appellants. Mr. Perkins on resuming his argu ment took up the Dred Scott and other cases relating to the extension of the constitution over territory. Soon after Mr. Perkins began Justice Brown inter posed an inquiry as to whether Mr. Per kins had examined the most recent cases relating to the extension of the constitution to territories and also whether he had examined those sections of the United States statutes wherein congress extended the constitution to certain territories. Mr. Perkins said he had examined both of those branches and he hoped to be able to present an swers to the contentions made as to them. FEAR WORLD'S END.

London, Dec. 18. Here is the plot of Tolstoi's forthcoming drama, "The Cor- isse": A minor official marries a girl for love, but soon after takes to drink and loses his situation.

But the director of the establishment where she is employed falls in love with her and wins her affection. They resolve not to live together without a marriage cer emony. They, therefore, induce the girl's husband to play the part of one deal to the world, a role he is quite willing; to undertake for a consideration. The girl thereupon informs the police that her husband has completely disap peared, and even pretends to recognize as his the body of an unknown man found drowned in the river. The mar riage takes placid but the secret of the lovers is made known through a public house brawl in which the degraded hus band relates that he is "a corpse," and how he came to be so. The police a.e called in, and the trio, convicted of big amy, are banished to Siberia, where th" denouement takes place as in Tolstoi's novel, "Resurrection."
