AN EARLY SETTLEMENT OP THE MA
CHINISTS STRIKE EXPECTED.
Washington. May 21.— President O'Connell paid
to-night that the advices received at headquarters
here indicated that an early settlement of the
trouble between the machinists and their employ
er* will be effected. Information at hand snowed
that to-day over one hundred and twenty firms had
granted the nine hour day. Mr. O'Connell said that
so far as he knew about six thousand men are out
in San Francisco and »chout three thousand in Cin
cinnati. Jn Chicago nearly all the important shops
have settled with the men. The reports from the
South show that all through that section settle
ments are being effected. Half the firms In Phila
delphia have come to terms, and the others are « x
pectcd to follow suit- There lias been no news of
a clash anywhere.
The storm centres of the strike to-<lay are In the
neighborhood of Cincinnati and on the Pacific
CoaFt. The number of firms that have signed
agreements is said to be about one thousand. Ex
cept in one or two instances, as at Soranton. Perm..
the allied trades have not yet been affected. It is
paid at the general headquarters of the machinists,
however, that where agreements are not signed
soon many of the men in the allied trades will fro
out. The estimate of President O'Connell of the
National Association of Machinists of the number
at strikers to-day remains approximately at fifty
thousand, the figures given yesterday. The execu
tive board of the association is In session here
watching the progress of the strike.
Only three railroads in the United States are now
affected by the strike— the Central Vermont, Ix>high
Valley and Delaware. Lackawanna and Western.
According to reports received to-day at head
quarters practically all the trouble between Kansas
City and the Pacific Coast has been adjusted. At
Kansas City about six hundred men are out. but
a. few email firms have signed the agreements. San
Francisco reports an almost complete lieup. Agree
ments have been reached then however, with
eleven firms. At Seattle seven hundred men have
struck. There are five hundred strikers at Tacoxna.
Wash. The trouble has been adjusted at most of
the other Pacific Coast points. In Chicago all but
a few of the small shops have adjusted matters.
About two thousand men are out in Boston. Many
men are out in Cincinnati. Hamilton. Dayton and
Alliance. Ohio. In Cincinnati a dozen tinnf have
made the concessions. Alliance reports a complete
tieup with five hundred men striking. Only a few
men are out in Cleveland, practically a general set
tlement having been effected there.
All the establishments employing machinists in
Norfolk, Va.. have signed agreements. Four of the
largest establishments in Wilmington, Del., have
signed agreements, leaving about half of the origi
nal strikers out. There is a complete tieup reported
at Newburg. X. V.. all of the three hundred ma
chinists being out. while all the men at the Brooks
locomotive works at Dunkirk. N. V.. have struck.
The Kaugatuck Valley, in Connecticut, is generally
affected. All are out at Bridgeport, Derby, An
sonls Waterbury. Stamford and New-Britain, but
all the firms In Danbury have signed agreements.
In New-Haven eleven firms have signed, but six
hundred men are still out. About five hundred are
out at Springfield, Mass. All are striking at Elgin.
111. At Syracuse twelve establishments have con
ceded the demands.
MAY EMBARRASS THE GOVERNMENT.
FEAR THAT THE STRIKE WDVL STOP WORK
ON WARSHIPS AND TRANSPORTS.
Washington. May 21.— The Navy and War de
partments Bear the effects of the machinists' strike
or. government work now in progress. The Navy
Department received word that th. strike had
1 1 read to large private yards on the Pacific Coast
where a number of war vessels are under construc
tion, and it is expected that Eastern yards having
naval ships to build also will be affected. The
War Department was Informed that the strike was
likely to stop work on the two naval transports
Egbert and Itosecrans, now being repaired on the
Pacific Coast. Secretary Root asked the Navy De
partment to assist In forwarding th*- work pending
the tle-i'r. and Acting Secretary Hackett ordered
that the two army transports be taken to the
navy yard at Bremerton, on Puget Bound, for
completion of repairs.
No government yards can be affected by the
strike. as an eight hour day prevails in all gov
ernment work. Government employes are said to
be contributing funds to support the strike, but no
attention will be paid to this matter.
EMPLOYERS CAPITULATING.
THEIR ORGANIZATION ASKS STRIKERS
FOR CONFERENCE— ONE AGREED
ON FOR TO-DAY.
Between two thousand and two thousand five
hundred machinists in this district were still Idle
yesterday on account of th" strike for the nine
hear day without reduction of pay. Throughout
the day several large firm* yielded, and the num
ber of strikers will be materially reduced to-day.
Among the larger firms which yielded are the
Whitman Machine Works, of Brooklyn; the White
Machine Company and the Connecticut Dynamo and
Motor Company, both of East Thirty-fourth-st.
It was also reported that the Moigan Machine
Company, of Rochester, had yielded. In all about
twenty shops in this district, employing about live
hundred men, acceded to the demands of the ma
chinists.
The most Important development of the day was ]
a meeting In the Astor House of District No. 2
of the National Metal Trades Association, which
is geographically coterminous with District No. li
of the International Association of Machinists. At
this m>- ;tin;^ those p't-Fent decided to seek a con
fereice with the machinists Secretary H. P.
D«-v»ns, of the National Metal Trades Association,
visited the headquarters of the strikers, at No. 23
Duane-st. He asked that a committee be appointed
to meet a committee of the employers at the Astor
Houee to-night, and try to at rive at a settlement.
Georpe 11. Warner telegr.iphed to Grand Master
Machinist O'Connell in Washington asking for In
structions. O'Connell telegraphed back Instructing
Warner to accept Mr. Devens's proposition. The
machinists' committee will consist of George H.
Warner. C. W. Booth and James B. Wilson. The
employer** committee will consist of M. P. Payne,
Of the Payne Engine Works. Elmlra; William
Schwanhauser. of the Worthington Pump Works, '.
Brooklyn, and George H. Phillips, of Hughes &
Phillips. New- York.
The machinists were jubilant over Mr. Deven's
visit, taking it as a sign of weakening on the art
of the employers. Mr. Devens said yesterday that
he expected that the striVe would be amicably
settled in a few days. He declared that it had
arisen because of the refusal of th« men to submit
to arbitration the demand for the nine-hour day
without reduction of pay. which, he declared, was
a violation of the agreement between the two as
sociations. George H. Warner, In replying to this
declared that the machinists were willing to arbi
trate on every point except the reduction of pay.
It was announced at the headquarters of the
machinists yesterday that the American Steam
Pump Works, in East Twenty-thlrd-«t.. which
employs one hundred men. would yield to-day.
At the conference to-night the committee of the
Metal Trades Association will demand that the
men return to work and refer the *„-. question
to the Board of Arbitration. There Is therefore
little ¦ope that any good will come out of the con
ference. Constant Booth, business agent of the
machinists, said -„i : night: "There will •.. no ar
bitration. This matter has gone too far for arbi
tration."
Mr. Devens, In speaking about the situation la«t
night, said: "We »-.:: meet the- men in a concilia
tory eplrit. All we want Is that they recognize
Ui* agreement In existence between their associa
tion and ours." The large " ho still holding out
¦¦» the H. Ho« Printing Press Company, In Grand
pt., employing seven hundred machinists, and the
Qmrrtn Machine Company, in Vurick-st., where
live hundred men went out Monday.
STRIKE GROWS IN JERSEY.
MACHINISTS FAIL TO MAKE AS MUCH HEAD
WAY THERE AS HERB.
New-Jersey strikers did not seem to make as
much of an impression as did their fellow trades
men here, few of the shops whose men had gone
out showing a disposition to make terms.
At PJainfield the thousand machinists and help
ers who went out on Monday had their ranks re
inforced by two hundred and fifty men from the
Pond Tool Works.*
The strike spread In Newark, when about fifty
men. representing three shops. Joined the ranks of
the idle. One firm employing about twenty men
gave In, The Crocker-Wheeler v orks, nt Ampere,
closed down, as it threatened to do. throwing out
of work the entire force of four hundred persons.
The shutdown is for an indefinite period.
Machinists in a number of shops are reported as
agitating the nine hour day demand, and It is
probable that there will be a large addition to tho
strikers by to-day, through non-union men joining
the m.
Two hundred and sixty machinists employed by
the New-York Ship Building Company, went out
at Camden. to enforce the terms demanded by the
national organization.
BIG PLANT CLOSED INDEFINITELY.
Dunkirk. N V.. May C— Because seven hundred
maehlnists employed at the Brooks Locomotive
Works struck to-day. President Stevens directed
Superintendent McNauphton to close the works
until further notice. This throws ;.''.oO men out of
work. The I?ro->ks company is one of the tlrm* in
the Ameri.-an Looonn-tlve Company, and it i» lm
posslble to say how kms the lockout will last. Thi
plant is the principal Industry >>f the town, and its
closing will be a serious blow to businesn mm.
STRIKERS REFUSE WAGEB.
Elizabeth. N. J., May 21 (Special). — The pay ear
of the Central Railroad Company arrived here this
morning with 18,400 to pay off the strikers, only
eißht men. who are about to leave Elizabeth
permanently, applied for their wages, the others
kesptafjl away from the pay car. It remained in
the city for five hours, and then went away. The
c-'unmitttK.- bavins charge of the strike instructed
the men no; to ask for their wages, as they would
thin place themselves In the position Of being no
longer employes of the railroad, and could not treat
with it as such.
SCHOOL BUILDING WORK GOING ON.
There was no change In the lookout of the brick
layers by tho Mason Builders' Association yester
day. Ro:h sides continued to make conflicting as
sertions as to the extent of the lockout, but tht»re
seemed to be no doubt that nearly all of the mem
•.. ra o i th' Mason Builders' Association had shut
down. The one exception is on the school work.
where, it is conceded by both sides, work is
going on.

P. It. R. ANI> CENTRAL IN THE WEST.
The successor of Samuel K. Cailawajr as president
of the Mew-York Central has not yet been decided
upon. Mr. Callaway was In Albany yesterday at
tending a special meeting of the stockholders of th.
New-York Central. He returned last evening, and
whf-n <=<?en at his home. No. 7iC Ftfth-ave., said that
he had heard of no decision as to til? successor and
had not seen Mr. Vanderbilt. Cbauncey M. Depew
also said that the question of Mr. Callaway's BUC-
Oesaor was unsettled.
A. J. Cassstt. president of the Pennsylvania
Railroad, visited the Grund Central Station yester
day morning and had a lon« talk with William X
Vimderhiit. tL McKay Twombly and other dlrectora
of the New-York Central. This led t,, the report
that a successor to Mr. Callaway was the subject
under discussion. Thl* was denied l^st night. It
was said that the Western situation— that Is the
control of T'nion Pacific and Northern Pacific— was
under discussion. It is understood that the Penn
sylvania and the New-York Central will act in har
mony in protecting their Interests In the Western
territory, just as they act In harmony In the Bast.
The Pennsylvania is practically In control of the
Atchison. Topeka and Santa IV Railroad now. and
will, it is said, operate it in baisjionious relations
with the Union Pacific and Chicago and Northwest
ern, both of which are practically ITanderbUt roads
It is said also that the Morsan-Hlll scheme in the
Northwestern territory is viewed by these Interests
with disfavor.
SUIT OVER NORTHERN PACIFIC STOCK.
A suit has bpfn begnn In the Supreme Court
against Isaac Newton Todd. of Indianapolis, by
Guthrie, Cravath & Henderson, attorneys for Flu
ley. I'.arrt-ll & Co., of Chicago^ for whom Mclntyre
& Marshall art- th« aK<-nts In this city, to recover
f.V',l&> for balance claimed as due on a short sale
of 100 shares of Northern Pacific common stock
on May 7. It was alleged that Mr. Todd directed
the plaintiffs to sell the stock for his account on
the New-York Stock Exchange at $145 a share,
and that as he (ailed to deliver the stock or put up
further margins the stock was bought In at %I'Hi
a share on May 9.
FOREIGN il:.'iSE I>ll> NOT BUFFER.
A day or two after the Northern Pacific corner
It w.ib whispered about that a prominent arbitrage
house was In trouble because of its failure to
deliver a large block of Northern l'aclfic stoc:k.
Rec.-ritly the report was revived, so yesterday a
Wall Street agency, acting for the arbitrage house,
sent out this notice:
The report current on the floor of the Stock Kx
change Chat one of the foreign arbitrage houses
was unable to deliver 13,<i00 shares of Northern
Pacific common stock which it borrowed from
the Kuhn. Loeb & Co.-Harriman syndicate on rep
resentations that the house had that amount In
transit Is pronounced by the banker who made the
arrangement between the syndicate and the foreign
arbitrage houses as absolutely without foundation.
Every share of stock lorrowed by the foreign
arbitrage houses from the syndicate has been re
turned, stock received from abroad being used for
that purpose, and not one of the foreign arbitrage
houses has lost a dollar on account of the unin
tentional corner In Northern Pacific, unless, of
course, it engaged in operations not Included in
the loaning agreement with the Kuhn, Loeb-Harrl
man syndicate.
W. H. LEWIS SUSPENDED.
W. H. Lewis, formerly assistant secretary of the
Consolidated Exchange, was yesterday suspended

YOU .4 NATIONAL I DIVERSITY.
QUESTION TO BE DISCUSSED BY A COMMITTEE OF
TUB EDUCATIONAIi ASSOCIATION.
The committee appointed by the National Educa
tional Association In Washington ill July. 1898, will
meet to-morrow afternoon In the trustees' room or
Columbia University, to formulate a Una] report
on the subject of a national university. Charles
D. Walcott, director of th»? Geological Survey, of
Washington, has been invited to meet the commit
tee, to represent the opinions of the men In charge
of the various laboratories an J collections of tin
government at Washington. The committee will
be in scission two days, and their report regarding
a national university will be presented to the Na
tional Educational Association In Detroit, Mich.,
In July. To-morrow evening there will be a dinner
for the committee at the City Club, given by the
resident members of the committee,
After the first meeting of the committee, on No
vember 3. 1899. they issued a declaration that: it
has been and Is one of the recognized functions of
the Federal Government to encourage and aid, but
not to control, the educational Instrumentalities of
the country. No one of the hills before Congress
to provide for the Incorporation of a national uni
versity at Washington commends itself to the Judg
ment of the committee as a practicable measure.
The government Is not called upon to maintain
at the capital a university In the ordinary sense of
the term.
Since that declaration, the committee has been
at work on an alternative plan by which the edu
cational facilities of the government departments
and collections at Washington might be used in
systematic fashion by qualified students, without
Involving the creation of a statutory, degree-con
ferring university. It Is this alternative plan which
the committee expects to formulate now. What
funds may be required, what buildings may be
needed, how this work can be. related to the insti
tutions of this country, whether it should be sup
ported by endowments or by a Congressional ap
propriation, are some of tbe questions which will
be acted upon at the sessions to-morrow and Frt
dajr.
