Of course, here capital and labor have their conflicts, but this. I .»>v«, is the result of lack of development of the social system.

The report presents proofs of lawlessness and brutality by "bosses" in forcing laborers to work at the camps, and makes a dozen suggestions, in part as follows: That a committee be appointed to give l*He publicity to the tacts collected through the »a«onai and local press. Public opinion would not tolerate these abuses if it knew of them.

HOPE FOE DRIVERS' EXPULSION. Lumber Dealers Still Working to Get Them Out of Board of Building Trades. There was general surprise yesterday over the success of Samuel Parks, delegate of the House smiths and Bridgemen's Union, in swinging around the- majority at the meeting of the Board of Build ing Trades on Wednesday to vote against expelling the Building Material Drivers* and Building Ma terial liandlers" union. It was indorsed by the committee of five of the board at its last con ference with the lumber and building material dealers that the committee's report would recom mend the expulsion of the two unions. As the board was anxious to end the shutdown of lumber a.nd materials, which has kept ail the trades idle bo long, the committee thought the report would be ratified unanimously. No one believed that Parka, who. it was thought, until then, bad lost his grip, would have been able to defeat the pro posals. Lumber and material dealers yesterday expressed the belief that the two unions will either leave the hoard or be c-xpeiled on Monday if the Donovan faction can get a strong enough majority. It waa kr.own yesterday that tho Donovan faction was uoing active work among the delegates and the members to obtain a major The Committee of Five called at the headquar ters of the Lumber and Building Material Dealers' Associations yesterday and reported the non-suco of its efforts to have the report ratified. Members of the committee would not talk. Chairman Davis of the Press Committee of the Lumber Dealers Association said later: "The whole matter is still in abeyance. We can do nothing- but wait. The yards remain dosed. The Board of Building Trades, by taking in and supporting these two onions of unskilled trades. created conditions under which we cannot do busi ness, and we cannot do business until these condi tions are removed. That is all there is to it." The Building Trades Employers' Association is sued the following statement yesterday from the board of governors: "It is hereby ordered by the. board of governors of the Building Trades Employers' Associati' n that after no association shall sign any ..... --ement or contract with their mechanics or other employes untli consent be no given by this board."

Flower for the dismissal of the flve indictments against him. The motion was made on the ground that Assistant District Attorney Garvan had no right In the grand Jury room. Counsel for Flower then moved that commissions be appointed to take the testimony of witnesses In Phoenix, Ariz.: Spokane, Wash., and In Manila, necessary to prove the value of the mines, which formed the basis of the complaint against Dr. Flower, and for postpone ment of the trial to October 1. District Attorney Jerome opposed the motion on the ground that it was merely to cause delay. Justice Davis agreed to receive affidavits up to noon to-day.

"•■■ MSN CALL CAPTAIN UNFIT. Trouble in Company I of the 60th Regiment. '. A complaint signed by twenty-five members of Company I. 69th Regiment, against Captain Daniel P. Sullivan, commanding the company, has been handed to Colonel Edward Duffy. The men say the captain is unfit to command them, and make several allegations against him. One allegation Is that in the company room on Memorial Day he referred to members of the company as "dogs" and "curs." For a mo ment, it Is said, there was danger of a summary punishment being inflicted on the captain. Among the signers of the complaint are all the non-commissioned officers of the company ex cept one. First Sergeant J. J. Brown and Ser geants J. J. O'Shaunnessy and George Foley are among the "non-coms." whose signatures are on the complaint. Colonel Duffy, who has been working hard In the interest of the G9th, will sift the trouble to the bottom, and has ordered an investigation. The record of the company for some weeks In regard to attendance has been- bad. At the inspection ordered recently by General Smith, commanding the brigade of which the regiment Is a part, the official report shows that only twenty-eight members were present out of fifty eight on the roll. At the parade of the regi ment fur rifle practice at Creodmoor last month only twelve members of the company responded for that duty, it is said. The company's present condition is a source of annoyance both to Gen eral Smith, the brigade commander, and to Colo nel Duffy The latter will punish the men who fall to perform their military duty without proper excuse, but the colonel believes this will not end the trouble. The company is composed of exceptionally intelligent and desirable men. MORE RESERVOIR DELAY. Mayor Low Regrets It, and Mer chants Say It Is Inexcusable. Mayor Low In a long statement yesterday ex pressed surprise ard regret that ihe Mayor should be allowed to find out by accident that the concrete flooring cf the Jerome Park Reservoir will have to be thicker than was contemplated, and that this will cause delay of a month or more. Mayor Lows statement reviews the status of construction on the Croton Dam and the Jerome Park Reser voir. He says that he dues not consider it wise to accede to the request of the Merchants* Association tv try the Aqueduct Commissioners for mistakes or misdeeds undt-r the last administration, prefer ring rather to lurry forward the work of construc tion, according to safe engineering lines, in order to provide an additional water supply for the city at the earliest possibie date. He say. that Cor poration Counsel Rives advised him some time ago that he had no power to- remove the Aqueduct Commissioner?. Of the present status of the Jerome Park. Reservoir tho Mayor says: Returning now to the present status of the Jerome Park Reservoir, I conless that it ir.aUes an sant impression upon me that the Mayor should be allowed to find oui, by accident, as it were, that the plans for the proposed bottom 01 this reservoir, which have been so long before tne commission, needed revision, thus causing a month's deiay at a. critical lime. It would seem that delay from this cause could easily have been avoided by a little foresight. I made substantialiy this statement to the A.jueduct Commissioners _et their meeting on Tuesday. I shall wait before de termining what action, if any, is called for. until I have receiver the report for which I have asked. a« to the condition of the subsidiary work neces sary to make the western half of this reservoir of use by August 1. 1903. George L. Duvai. chairman of the Merchants' As sociation's commltu- } on water supply, issued a statement in which he said in part: The fact is the Aqueduct Commission for the last five and a half years has been not only a useless but an obstructive body of men. I cannot i«arn that any one of them has uny engineering knowl edge or is otherwise competent to direct <i work upon which this community is depending ior t.ie securltv of its water supply. It ha* been sn.>w:i that tne concrete lining- 1? a far fetched excuse for bad work. If it was not that, it wo.. ething eise. and the reservoir of excuses If ling <iry. Whether it will be Cecided to su:ini!t this matter to the attention of the prand jury will largely depend upon the delay ln< urred, flrsi hi the report of the Burr-Free man-HerinK Commission, and then hi ;h<:- action of the Mayor upon our charges. FLOOD TO FACE CHARGES. Suspended — Men Under Him Were Dismissed on Similar Ones. Acting on his statement of Wednesday that charges would be made against a prominent police official.

Mr Wilson, possibly, is in a better position to give this advicf- than some actors are to fullow it. ••His father was an actor, and his uncle didn't have any money, either." wan the way they put it at Weber & Fields's this winter.

Attitude of Operators Conciliates Miners. WUkesbarre. Perm.. June 4.-The danger of a strike seems already to be pissing away, even before the convention of miners, which is to meet in Potts ville within ten days. This is due to the state ments of the coal companies officials and superin tendents that if the mine workers at their conven tion should re-elect their district presidents as their representatives on the conciliation board by a ma jority vote there would be no further objection to their eligibility to serve on the board. This action will most likely be taken at the coming convention as the leaders of the mine workers are not desirous of forcing the issue to a suspension of work unless . sips ■£ ( ;: h :[ $?%£ w^ bo^ds minf^oSera *« held to-day.

Concerning the recognition of the union by the Strike Commission he said: The statement that the question of recognizing the United Mine Workers was never submitted to the Strike Commission is entirely untrue. That was one of the Important awards in pur *»»«• "jf.. 1 of it being that "tne miners' organization, wtiicn. of course, la the United Mine Workers, should have three representatives on the board of conciliation— one for each district.

FIVE MOKE MILLS GIVE IN. Philadelphia Textile Strikers Take Up Child Labor Question. Philadelphia, June Five additional textile es tablishments conceded the fifty-five hour week to their employes to-day, making more than sixty firms that have given the workers the shorter week since the movement was b^gun. Two of the estab liehmenta — one a dyeing and finishing works and the other a spinning — agree to pay their em ployes at the rate at sixty hours a week for fifty-aye hours' work. .Among the worker? who quit to-day and Joined the strikers for the shorter week were a large number of tap« weavers, who are the first in this branch of the textile industry to join in the struggle. The leaders in the strike are giving considerable attention to the child labor feature of the textile industry. They say that some manufacturers are violating the law by making children work under conditions that are prohibited. They hope that publicity of the -alleged violations will so rouse public sentiment that the manufacturers will b*j forced at least to arbitrate the differences between the workers and themselves. The strikers declare they have always been willing to arbitrate. MUST HAVE CONSENT CENTRAL BOARD. The board of governors of the Building Trades Employers' Association decided yesterday on the following rule: "It is hereby ordered by the board of governors of the Building Trades Kmployers' Association that hereafter no association shall sign any agreement or contract with their mechanics until consent be given by the board." FLOOD SENDS VEGETABLES UP.
