STRIKERS MORE QUIET
Only One Disturbance Marks the Day

"And we are getting tie fares, too,"

The N'ttlemenit of the strike Is still
ulppermost it the minds If citl'izens in
Philadelphiau. Nearly everybody con
idters arbiltratlion as the nutural meth
od. but the co rtpany Insslts there Is
nothing to arbltrate. The offielals and
dlrectors stick to their original declar
ation that the union will not be dealt
with and they are apparently just as
dCeterminell d todlay its they were three
weeks ago.
"Open Shop."
Offiialls of the union are Just Is de
termined that no settlemlnent will lie
accepted that does not Include full re
(conition of the union. The comnpany
olfotm to take strikers bark and does
not demanlid that they shall drop their
union nenmberslhip, but insists that the
union shall cut no figure in any peace
negotiations. In other words, the
company is for the "open shop."
It Is not believed that any effort to
secure outside intervention or the me
diation of the civic federation or of
President T'aft or of anyone else will
hear fruit. Tile company officials are
cllent regarding yesterday's action of
the Interstate Railways company in
creasing to 23 cents an hour the wages
of motormen and conductors in Tren
toll, Wilmington, Chester, Lebanon
and Norristown. Thile Philadelphia
Rapid Transit enllpany now pays 22
cenis an hour with a promise of an in
crease to 23 ents onil July 1 to men
employed Imorle than one year.
Look for Break.
The authorities look for a big break
in tilhe ranks cf the symlpalthetic strik
ers tomorrow. Many have already re
turned to work and the police canllvass,
It is said, shows thousands will do so
tomorrow. A superintendent at
C.ramip's shipyard declared today that,
desplite tile extraordinary efforts of the
leaders, not it single one of 5,000 em
ployes of the big plant walked out.
According to police Information hun
dreds of tile sylnpathetic strikers al
the ialdwin locomotive works will re
turn to work tonlorrolw. The bricklay
ers and carpenters, it Is said, will re
s1Uie1' Monllday or T'uesfday anid other
trades will follow.
Ordered Out.
Inl order ito strengthen thle sycilllpth

day directed that all milkmen, bakers,
grocery clerks and other dispensers of
t11e necessities of life remain away
from work tomlorrow and l ntil ire
grievances of tilte striking carmen are
adjusted.
It was also resolved that union Inern
bers withdraw their money from
banks. Their symnpathizers, Whether
clrganlled or lnot, are also asked to
do likewise. Tie leaders of thl sym

The railroads previously annoullinled
their willingness to arbitrate the In
creased wage demand, which the fire
men May would ainourit to about 12 1-2
per cent, Two otlher dllinLI(ns in l
valved tile managelrs cay, concern

with the promotion of firemen, wheth

Brotherhood oif Locomotive Firemen
and Enginemen.
"Does your cltter mean that If u
satisfactory reply Is not received a
strike will be called?" Mr. Carter was
asked,
"It Iloks pretty grave," lie saint.
"We are nearer a disagree'mnlllnt thall
we have ever been during the whole
six weeks of conferences. Wc dii not
want a, strike. We want lih publcl
to understand that. As It at'r U''lth)r
Ity to strike, we have the vote of l',,
than 80 per cent of the men in favor
of It. All the answers we have re
ceived from tiht managers heretofore
have been evasivei. I hope their re
ply will not be so."
It was learned that the mlanagers
had agreed to "stand pat" and, while
refusing any conce-slons probably
would Invite tile ibrotherhood's com
mittee to another conference tomor

After conferring with Mr. Nixon, O.
L. l)iekesn,l ussistant to the president
of tile I'hlcago, Burlington & Quincy

ment:
"We have received Mr. I'arter's let
tel'r, which to the laymanl who Is not
thoroughly fanmilliar with the methods

'tol Ie soile('wllat serious and point tio
a strike. I wish to say that this is
maerely onil of tilhe mtethods unfor
tunately invotked in coiiducting such
negotiations and it' Is not likely that
the men would sanction the action of

one or twoi technical points. We do
not feel tile slightest apprelhetslon
ovier the diffleulty. Thile luanagers in

Obstacles.
e The prinllulal obstacles In the way of
u an agreement on the classification bill
are found In the provisions relatlng to
a oil lands and water power sItes. This
ybill authorizes the seciretary of the in
terlor to classify all the publlc lands.
e Mary sePntuirs cotlend It would be hn
Sposlsbl, to classify, ill lands In ad
Svaince and s-nnators who hold this view
-ar maknlllg troublle for the conmmittee.
k The cormnllltt- Itself appre,,lates this
Y difficulty and thellre I a tendency to
l wards it provisioun for the leasIng ruth
er r than lithe sale of klnds supposed to
Y over oil de.posits. If the bill should
be franedl with thlu Idea any person
could lease. a tlract of land and put
Slidown his well, and if successful in
findintg ill, couldl then acluire the land
under the mining li aws.
