( OMHISATIOX. Democratic Tinkers Said to Xeed Former Candidate. A work-In* agreement between William R. Hears, and the new Democratic League Is txinic arranged, with the idea of com pelling • thorough reorganisation of the Democratic party in this state The men at the *iead of the Democratic L«airur are pronounce! conservatives, and Include eK-Judre Alton 11. Parker. ex- Judge Morgan J. O'Brien. D Cady Her rick. Edward M. Shepard. Thomas M. O» b«rt.e and S. Stan wood Mmken. A com bination between men of this type and a radical like Mr. Hearst at first iflance may appear to be a political absurdity, but It teems to be a fact, nevertheless, that the Democratic league If quietly working out a policy that vill be attractive to Mr. Hearst. The Shouts dinner for Mr. Hearst at Mm I'laaa Hotel on Saturday nltht was the first eye-opener.

Hearst a* a conservative. And working «Hti the Democratic league , is something of a surprise to 'he little people In the Independence party, but a* Mr. Hearst pays the b'.ils he never consults the little pa***" 1n th* orpaniiation untU after he lias decidt-d what 10 do. The consideration that is driving the Democratic and Independence leagues to aVather at this time is the fact that neither can win without the other. Hearst has ♦inough ttltaa to frustrate any plan of the old organization, at.d the arrogance <f Conner* has convinced :ne vatlve* that they cannot beat t'onnerf without the •Id of Hearst, and itaasjshl)* Murphy. When S. £tunwcod Menken was at-ked last night about a possible w..iki:i( .i*r.<-m. Nt between the • i;.,i, tat!. League and th« Hearst men he Kaid: "It ■ a matter that 1 cannot discuss.

NEW-YORK DAILY TRIBUNE. WEDNESDAY. DECE>mER 1. 1909 SWITCHMEN GO OUT XORTHU'EST TIED UP. Strike of 2. M0 Men Affects Thirteen Railroads. M Paul. Nnv 30.— After fifteen days of negotiating between th<- Switi limen'a Union af North America and il»e Joint committee of railroad managers, repre senting- thirteen roads of the Northwest. a ftrlke Involving 2.300 switchmen be came effective at 6 o'clock to-nisht. The m*n. who demand 6 cents more an l.our and double pay for Sunday and overtime In excess of ter hours, were employed by the various railroads west and north of St. Paul and Lake Superior 1 • ti:e Paclfli Cia.-t. Railroad officers admitted to-night that most of the men are out, and that traffic is already delayed, but expressed the. opinion that conditions would re turn nearly to normal in a few days. The following roads are affected In whole or in part: Great Northern; Northern Pacific; Chicago. Burlington & Wuincy; Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha; Chicago, Milwaukee A St. Paul; the Bridge and Terminal; the Railway Transfer; Minneapolis, St Paul ft Sault Ste. Marie; Minnesota Transfer; Minneapolis Eastern; Minneapolis Wswt ern; Chicago, Rock Inland & Pacific, and the Chicago Great Western. The first effect of the strike was a bharp bulge in th« price of wheat on the Chicago Board of Trade late to-day. As tho roads entering St. Paul, Duluth and Superior are largely grain carriers from the West, the prospect of interruption to this traffic caused some to fear delayed deliveries of grain. To-night both sides to the dispute is med statements. The railway managers' committee issued the following: The railroads of the Northwest, recogniz ing that the public lean interested but un represented third party in the controversy with their switchmen, through the com mittee which has been conducting their negotiations, desire to place at the dis posal of the public the following facts in connection with the negotiations. The switchmen in the Northwest territory made simultaneous demands on thirteen railroad companies centring in the Twin Cities for an increase in wages and certain changes in service conditions. At the sug gestion of F. T. Hawley. president of the Switchmen's Union of North America, of whose organisation the switchmen in the Northwest aie members, arrangements were made to conduct the negotiations in one conference. The demands of the switchmen were for double pay for Sundays, holidays and over time; an advance of 60 cents a day of ten hours in the wages of switchmen, switch tenders, towermen. engine herders and assistant yard masters: a modification of the rule providing for the payment of penalty in case of failure to permit switch men to secure their meal in the middle of their shift at a stated period, which con templates double pay in cases where it be came necessary Is) work a portion of the meal hour; and the elimination of thei physical examination and the age limit placed upon switchmen entering the ser vice. The managers" committee offered the switchmen an Inert -c of 20 cents a day of ten hours In tne -<tes of pay of switch men employed in the territory west of Havre, Mont., on the Great Northern Hall way, and west of Hillings, Mont., on the Northern Pacific Railway; the differential in that territory for switchmen having ob tained for about two years. Further concession was declined for the reason that the rates of pay of switchmen were increased «m 13 p« r cent in No vember. 1906. and because the ratal at that lime established had not been re duced during the period of business de pression which followed The attention of the switchmen was called to the fact that in ISM the switch men were granted ■• larger percentage of Mictea*e than any other class of employes In train service. At the present rates the wages of the switchmen average over $100 a month. ' The statement then recites that in submitting its final answer to th> switchmen the managers suggested that the demands be submitted to arbitration under th« provisions of the Erdman ; ct. The switchmen declined this suggestion and In a written answer said that "thJ committee begs leave to state that it will nut submit to arbitration under any circumstances." The statement then says that a tele gram was addri ss'-d to Martin A. Knapp, >f the lrit«Tstat.' OaaMsMffOi Cotnmissiiri, and Chan-s P. N.ill, Tnit. d Statts Com nilsnion<-r af Labor, aaUssS them t- ad :.s mediat<->rs under the Krdman act. The statement adds: Before the conferences with Messrs. Knapp and Neill had begun, despite the understanding reached in the eon fen thai mediation under the l.rdman act should be evoked, and without the knowledge of cither the managers, committee or medi ators, a strike order was Issued by the switchmen's committee directing the switchmen of the thirteen Northwestern railroads to cease work at ii p. m.. No vember M, in the event that their full de mands had not been conceded. This violation of food faith so embar rassed the negotiations that successful mediation became Impossible and led to the demand by Messrs. Knapp and Neil!, addressed to both the managers' commit tee and the switchmen, that the contro versy be submitted to arbitration under the terms of the Krdrnan act. To this proposal the managers' committee gave its willing assent, but the switchmen abso lutely declined it. Speaking for tlie switiimen to-night. I'rend.nl Hawiey t-nld: We have had no further communication from the railroad officials. The switchmen have been fair in their requests. The re- Quest for double pay for overtime Is in the nature of a penalty more than anything else, as we want to discourage overtime Sunday and holiday work. \v«- also ask for a modification of the physical requirements and age limit rules Examinations for employment on railroads now are as rigid a - those required for service in th-* regular a: my. I have never scan a time when the men were so thoroughly organized and ready lor concerted action as in the present In stance This strike will result in the most compute tie-up of railroad traffic in the territory affected that has ever been kf.own. not even excepting the g eat strike if 1891. From now on not a switch en gine will mow la the territory beween the head of th*- lake* : nd the Pacific Coast We <!:'! not wish a strike, and used every reasonable means to avoid one. We real ize the inco:iv< nience Which a strikn at this time will cause to the public, but the ret-potisibillu does not lie with the switch men, as they only asked for that which was justly theirs. We have advised every member that from the moment the strike begins h< must keep away from the company's prop erty, obey the law, commit no act of vio lence, nor aa anything thai will reflect discreditably upon himself or the organi zation conducting th< strike. Early reports received by the switch n;«-n as to the effect of the strike order indicate that all switchmen on the af fected lines Iked awl and that there 1p a K«*neral tie-up of truffle In Jill th yards heard from. In St. Paul and Min neapolis all switchmen are out. O. T. si. Kit-. general manager of th«« Northern Pacific, to-night said that he » hd only meagre reports of the effects of the strike order so far. He paid that kcal traffic had been delayed, but that the railroads had ■ scheme by which they hoped to facilitate the handling of trattir In n short time. Knoii«h switch ing was done in the St I'aul yards to night by train crews to keep passenger traflle moving. PRINTERS LOSE CASE. Altinny. Nov.

HELD FOR MURDER MRS. SNEAD'S DEATH. "Aunt" Accused After Au topsif Shows Drowning. Ka«t Ornnsre. N. .T . V " iPi'e.lnl) An autepxy held this afternoon on the body "f Mrs. Accv W. M. Snead. who was f sßi •lead yesterday in the bathtub of her home. No. 89 North 14th street, this city showed that the woman had been drowned. I^ato to-night Miss Virginia Wardlaw. who said •he was her aunt, was held on a charge of murder. Previously the police had put her through the third degree, but failed In their efforts to get something from her re laruing the dead woman. It was learr.ed that Mrs. Snead carried a life Insurance policy of JJ5.000. James Btll. chief of police; Detective Walter Godfrey, of the prosecutor's staff, and other city officials tried to persuade the I TiMiner to tell to w.*om the young woman belonged. Miss Wardlaw refused to answer all questions. All she would say was that she had been attending Mrs. Snead since the latter gave birth to a child several montha ago, when the dead woman's husband died. The baby Is in St. Christophers Hospital, Brooklyn. The police discovered that the two wom en up to about six or eight weeks ago had I • . m iivinK at No. 1683 «th street, Flatbush. It was while then- that Mrs. Snead became a mother. Dr. William R. Pettit. of No. 1325 East 37th street. Flatbush, attended her The mystery In which the life of Mn. Snead Is wrapped deepens an the threads are followed In the Flatbush xectlon of Brooklyn. From the indication*, the woman wus held a prisoner by three slov enly creatures of middle age. and there was an unknown man who was wont to skulk into the building at the dead of night. But neither the neighbors nor tlie trained nurse who watched over her until sent away at midnight, after one day's work, coui'l throw much light upon her or her surroundings. What they say la a little more than this — she was alone among keepers and she was constantly afraid. WOULDN'T TALK TO DOCTOR. Dr. Pettit attended the woman on sev eral occasions. About the middle of last August he had his first opportunity to be In a room with her alone. He thought that she might speak, but her lip.-* seemed sealed. He had operated on her and a trained nurse was required. Miss Eliza beth Megg, of Klatbush. was sent for. After serving through the day she was Informed by one of the guards that her services were no longer required. Before she was so Informed she heard one of the women talking softly to some one below, who responded in a man's voice. The woman said: "Come later; MM one here!" Dr. Pettit tells the following story of his relations with the "House of Mystery." as the neighbors called it: "I was called in to attend Mrs Snead by one of the three elderly women whom I met at the house in East 4Sth street about August 1. I was directed to the sickroom on the second floor. The patient was ■ young woman, about twenty-five years old. She appeared to me to be refined. One of the older women told me thp.t she was the joung woman's aunt. I made other visits after that, but at no time was 1 able to find out from Mrs. Snead anything about her self. Every lime I nsked a question one of the three old women was always ready to give an answer. Mrs. Snead seemed afraid to talk. She appeared to be under the in fluence of the persons around her. This was at the time of the birth of her little boy. "What I could never understand was why such a woman would voluntarily live with three such persons as her attendants. They looked disreputable to me. They were care li ss about their appearance and unfitted for association with refined people. But they nev<*r left her alone. They occupied port of a two-family house, which was only partly furnished. The presence of the young woman In such a place with such companions certainly looked mysterious. SAW NO MEN ABOUT. "I never saw any men about the place. I only heard from one of the old women there that Mrs. Snead had a husband who died seven months ago. "Another time I called at the house on one of my visits no one answer, d the bell. I had to Ret in through a front window to see my patient This time only one of the trio (•; women was in the house. She followed me to the room where Mrs Si, i- i.t lay ill. The young woman wanted to talk, but she seemed scared to death. I did not go there after that. I gave up the case because the elderly women did not take care of Mrs. Snc.i.l the way I wished. They refused to let me take the 'stitches out of a wound made in the opera tion upon her. The stitches may be there now." Mils Mobs, the trained nurse, when seen at her home. No. 273 East 33th street. Flat bush, last night, told this of her expe riences: "I was called in to attend Mrs. Snead by Dr. Pettit on the morning of August IS. The operation was performed shortly be fore noon. I stayed with Mrs. Snead all that afternoon and evening. leaving there between midnight anu 1 o'clock the follow ing morning. "Mrs. Sneud di.i not want me to go. She wanted me to stay all nicht, but the other women, who nevrr left us alone, insisted upon my leaving, saying they could take care of Mrs. Snead. I did not have nny conversation with Mr*. Sn.ad whatever. I could not. because the other women did not give me a chance. Wherever I went one of them kept tagging after me. I was not left alone with Mrs. Snead for a single moment. "Mrs. Snead seemed afraid of some one or something. While I was near she duns to my hand and squeezej it. si,.- termed to want to tell me something, but she did not dare to, as OSM of the other women was present in the room all the time. "About half an hour before midnight the front door bell rang and one of the women went to the kitchen and yelled down the speaking tub.-. She told th.« caller to wait oi. the stoop a minute and went to a front room, taking care to close the hall door after her. I heard her ral?n the window ■■i talk to some one. a man's voice an swered. I am positive of that. The woman spok- In a slow, deliberate vole, and all Bhe said was: "Come later; some one here!" Mrs. ads baby was taken a nth later to the St. Christopher Hospital for Babies.

Fly? hundred Scotchmen gathered with their guests last night at the Waldorf to dine In honor of St. Andrew's Day and mark In that way the 153 d annual dinner of the St. Andrew's Society of New York. Robert Frater Mupro presided, Darwin P. Klngsley. F. Hopklnson Smith. J. Amnan Bryce, M. P., and Dr. Anthony H. Evans spoke, Harry louder sung a few songs, and J. Hamilton Lewis, of Chicago, with his famous pink whiskers, was there. There was enthusiasm when the parade of bagpipers passed through, there was ap plause for every mention of "Bonnie Scot land." and Harry L*uder's songs got a hearty response, but the real yells of Scotchmen were heard only once during the evenfng, and that was when "auld John Reid." one of the oldest embers of the society, wan called from his place to sin* •Scots Wha Hae." Mr. Reid slogs It every year at the St. Andrew's banquet, and wl fellow members insist that he gets better us he gets older. In his opening remarks Toastmaster Munro made mention of the loss of two prominent members by death since the last annual dinner Dr. Andrew McCosh and John Stewart Kennedy. Xo SCOT AT POLE. "This year." said Mr. Munro, -'brought one great disappointment to ScotckwM everywhere. \Ve were taught to believe that when the North Pole was discovered there, would be found sitting upon it a 1 hman— ard the teaching was wrong." Darwin P. Kingsley. who was called i;>-i to respond to the tonst "The Land We Live In." told the Scots that he knew their view of It wli that there were only two desira ole places for Scotchmen— Scotland ami Heaven. Mr. Kingsley declared that the very lan guage of the toast assigned to him indi cated the proverbial conservatism of Scotchmen. 'You don't call it home," he said; "Just call It the land we live In, but eventually. 1 suppose, if Scotchmen keep on, some suc cessor of mine will be called on to answer a revised version of this toast, which will run something like this: The Land We Own.' " J. Hamilton Lewis, responding to fat riot ism of the Scot," took occasion to laud It highly and to dra*-,- comparisons wltti American patriotism detrimental to the latter. In fact, according to the Chicago orator, this country "was In an awfu' way." "Contemplate the atmosphere of our na tional environment." he commanded.
