Gregory and Alderman Frank Myers, of the city, filed resignations with the city clerk, asking immediate acceptance. There was no cause for their action stated in the resignation, but it Is pre sumed to have been brought about on account of controversies growing out of differences of opinion regarding the construction of certain paragraphs of the specifications for the paving which is now being constructed on the four streets surrounding the pub lic square In Memphis.

CHICAGO STRIKE WILL BE GREAT Employers Take the Offensive and Will Throw Thousands Out of Work. [United Press Leased Wire Service CHICAGO, June 28.—One of the greatest labor wars of recent years was on in deadly earnest this after noon. It will be fought out with dol lars, not bullets, Carpenter contractors, lumber deal ers whose capital runs into enormous figures and building material manufac turers this afternoon issued declara tions that unless by a near-miracle differences are sottled In the mean time they will throw a quarter of a million Chicago workmen into idle ness. N After today, Chicago lumber deal ers and manufacturers of building material will accept no more eon tracts. When outstanding orders are delivered the plants will be shut down completely. The shutting down of tho scores of plants, was decided on today to smash tho strike the carpenters declared on May 1 for higher wages At that time 16,000 men quit work, thereby throwing out of Jobs a total of over 100,000 men in allied trades. Two thirds of the carpenter con tractors pf the ctty have signed agree ments granting the carpenters' de mands. The other third, members of the employers' association, refused and drew upon the power of produc ers of material and allied Interests to force the workers to terms. Estimates today placed the loss to the workers alone in wages would be at the rate of at least $600,000 a day and a still larger amount to the em ployers. The employers took the offensive this afternoon at a meeting of twenty of the leading building manorial men of the city. It was figured that the shut down would be felt In full force by the end of this week. Union leaders declared today they Intend putting the facts before the fed oral authorities who will be asked to determine whether the employers can be proceeded against for alleged crim inal conspiracy in restraint q£ trade.

Yankee Chemists Discover New Filler to 8}jpplaht Foreign Brand. Just as new processes of making pe trol and dyes have been discovered by scientists because of the war con ditions, so the universally adopted Mnzda lamp has a romantic touch dat ing from the assassination of the Aus trian archduke. The death of the duke precipitated the war, which put an end in a few hours to the importation of the so called "rare gaseous elements" which give the new 100 watt lamp its extraordinary white brilliancy and also its exceptional efficiency. Just enough of the rarity was on hand to enable the electrical chemists to try discovery experiments In the big laboratories. Day and night entire forces of scientists labored to find the tallsmanic substance equal to the foreign product. Thrown on our own resources, the American chemist again succeeded. He found the "good stuff" necessary to supplant the foreign material. In fact, he has done so well that America Is not only Independent of Europe for this chemical, but the new American brand is rated, of supe rior capacity. A Matter of Shells.
