NON-UNION MEN ON RAILROADS It Is Expected That Unless the Strike Is Settled the Congestion of Freight Will NJ Serious - Situa tion Is Delicate. (By Assoclated Press.) Boston, March 11.-With more than 8,000 men actually out and with promises of support from unions whose member ship it was claimed would bring the total up to 25,000, if it became necessary for them to join the movement, the striking freight handlers and men allied, today began the second day of the contest to prevent the employment of non-union labor by the railroads and other corpor ations. The two railroads principally affected by the strike, the New York, New Haven & Hartford and the Boston & Albany branch of the New YOrk Central, by the employment of non-union men and by drawing help from their forces in other cities, were able to announce that they were prepared to carry on business as usual. While the railroads against which the vtrike is chiefly aimed have thus tar es caped serious consequences, other busi ness interests of great magnitude which are Indirectly involved, have felt serious ly the effect of the strike. Freight Accumulations. While freight accumulations of one day at the various terminals c'uld be stored, that of another 24 hours will cause a serious congestion and add to the difficulties of making shipments when the trouble is over. It was expected by some that the ex press team drivers and helpers would strike the first thing today, as a vote to that effect had been passed by the union, but at 10 o'clock the Adams, American and New York & Boston Dis patch companies were doing business as usual. The general team drivers' union mem bers, however, began to leave work and at 10 o'clock it was estimated that 70 per cent of the total number w-re out. This gave the strike force an addition of about 1,500 men and brought the total up to 9,500. These drivers handle mainly building material. President Ryan of the Longshoremen's union, has ordered a general strike of all longshoremen and dock freight handlers In sympathy with the New York, New Haven & Hartford men. This union em braces 2,500 men. WILL BECOME A PEER. Mr. Balfour Is Said to Have Ambitions of That Sort. (By Associated Press.) London, March 11.-The return of Arthur Balfour may not accelerate the business of parliament for Sir Michael Hicks-Beach has led the house well, but it will discourage the rumor mon gers. Joseph Chamberlain's partisans have well nigh convinced themselves that he is the logical and necessary prime minister. They are content as soon as Mr. Balfour re-appears in Downing street with repeating their earliest fore cast that 'he will take a peerage when Lord Salisbury retires and leave Mr. Chamberlain in command of the com mons. The old tory view is that the Cecil family has a powerful grip on English politics and will remain in the saddle. The unknown element is the state of public feeling when the war really ends. The mere feeling of relief from a cost ly and burdensome campaign will not be helpful to the ambitions of the sec retary of the colonies, but the under tone of a popular triumph may make the strongest minister Lord Salisbury's rightful successor. FRIARS MUST GO. Pope Leo Orders His Delegate to Con ciliate the Americans. (By Associated Press.) Rome, March 1L-When the pope re ceived Monsignor Sparretti on Monday, before the departure of the latter for the Philippines, he urged him to make every effort to work' with and concilate the Americans from whom, including President Roosevelt himself, the papal government had received such evident marks of friendliness. The words of the pontiff are the more important since he recently received many warm petitions from the friars and their protectors, urging him to main tain their moral and material supremacy in the Philippines and recommending especially to prevent their removal. Several cardinals consider that if Washington insists the friars must ul timately be gradually withdrawn. Earthquake Shocks in Russia. (By Associated Press.) At. Petersbueg, March 11.-Severe earthquake shocks recurred at Shamaka, Trans-Caucasla, Sunday.

IT WAS LAID ON THE TABLE House Then Went Into Committee of the Whole for the Considera tion of the Postoffice Bill. (By Associated Prese.) Washington, March 11.-Wh lt the house met today Mr. Thayer of Minne - sota caused something of a flurry by rising to a question of privilege, which, r he said, involved the "dignity of tho 4 house and the safety of Its members." y He therefore presented a resolution u setting forth many rumors regarding n Cuban reciprocity, together with alle gations that the sugar trust was to be d the chief beneficiary of such reciprocity; that it was subsidizing newsa pers, es n tablishing literary bureaus, and in other ways attempting to cieate public senti e ment in favor of Cuban rec'procity. y The resolution declares that the dig nity of the house is involved and calls for a special committee of seven mem bei a to investigate the subject. e Mr. Loud made 'a po nt of order against the resolution, which was sust lined by the speaker. h Mr. Thayer appealed from the decision of the chair. "I move to lay the appeal on the table!" instantly cried Mr. Payne. the republican leader. Mr. Laid on Table. 11 Mr. Thayer demanded the nyis and .o nays, and the roll was called. ts The republicans voted so .dly for the motion to lay the appeal on the table, while two democrats-Measss. Fleming d of Georgia and McClellan of New York te broke away from their party associates re and voted 'with the republicans.

WANT TRADE WITH CUBA ENGLISH OHAMBER OF OOM MERCE WANT BRITISH GOV ERNMENT TO INTERFERE. WANT FAVORED NATION CLAUSE It Was a Private Interview But It Is Understood That Lord Lansdowne Gave Them But Little Encouragement. ' (By Associated Press.) London, March 11.-Delegates from a number of chambers of commerce vis ited the foreign secretary, Lord Lans downe, at the foreign office today and presented a memorial relative to Brit ish trade with Cuba, pointing out that it was feared that when the administra tion of that island was nanded over to the Cubans a reciprocity treaty would be negotiated, admitting Cuban produce to the United States at reduced duties and granting corresponding preferential terms to American produce and manu factures by Cuba. "The United States," says the memo rial, "when declaring war on Spain, ex pressly stated that their action would be limited to freeing Cuba from Spanish rule. It was, therefore, understood by those in Europe engaged in trade with Cuba that no measure would be adopted at the conclusion of the war which would restrict or destroy their trade with that island. "Such a reciprocity treaty as that an ticipated would undoubtedly put an end to European trade with the island. The chambers therefore most earnestly re quest that the utmost effort be made by his majesty's minister at Washi'igton to prevent the signing of any such treaty, or at least to see that the mlost favored nation treatment of Cuba be continued to this nation. It is represented that French and Ger man interests would suffer by a red prouity treaty add it is suggested that a joint protest might he effectual in pre 'venting a change adverse to the Inter ests of Europe and in trade with Cuba." The interview was private, but the Associated Press understands that, while promising to look into the matter, Lord Lansdowne gave but faint encourage to the delegation. King'. Racer Is Lame.

Washington, March 11.-The senate, when it convened today at the request of Mr. Cuiom of Illinois, one of the conferees disagreed to the conference report on the bill providing for the carrying into effect of ihe stipulations of article seven of the Paris treaty, The senate insisted upon its amend ments and Messrs.

This, together with a similar resolution adopted by the house, had been referred to the committee on privileges and elections. The house had passed such a resolu tion four times, but the question never had been conlidered by the senate. He was being pressed constantly, he said, by correspondents to know when a vote would be taken upon the ques tion by the senate and he desired to inquire of the chrairman of the commit tee whether the senate could not have a vote upon the rcsulution during the present session. Mr. Burrows of Michigan, chairman of the committee on privileges and elce tions, after saying what Mr. iterry had said was true, said: "I will say to the senator that there is no disposition on the part of the com mittee to shirk responsibility in connec tion with the resolution.

Mr. Mitchell of Oregon, in a state ment in support of what Mr. lierry harl said, exprenised the hope that the com mnitt'e on privileges and elections would see its way to report the resolution and favorably or au'versely amr air an early date in order that the senate might have opportunity to rct upon II, Mil.
