Shirt-saint Pickets Who Went
to Workhouse Attend Meeting.
Twenty young women with placards
pinned across their bosoms Inscribed
•'Workhouse Prisoner" looked down in a
superior sort of way from the Carnegie
Hall platform last night on an audience of
four thousand - admirers of both sexes. In
back of them were grouped some three hun
dred and fifty poor things who could wear
only the insignia "Arrested." It certainly
esemed a case of unfair discrimination on
the part of the magistrates.
The latter were properly condemned by
the speakers. It was a mass meeting called
'•- protest against the treatment accorded
shirtwaist strikers by the police and the
Judiciary. Mrs. O. H. P. Belmont sat in a.
box.
The whole thing took on something of
the aspect of a legal discussion tinged with
emotion. Mi!es M. Dawson. who has acted
as counsel for arrested pickets, and Martin
W. Littleton both severely criticised the
magistrates for their various decisions in
the dispute. Magistrate Kemochan was an
attentive listener in the audience, as was
Dean George W. Kirchwey, of the Colum
bia Law School.
Mr. Dawson singled out Magistrates Cor-
Bd Barlow as the principal offenders,
end they were named particularly In a set
Sf resolutions adopted by the assemblage
before the speaking began. In the resolu
tions they were called "unfit for judicial
off.cc," and hisses greeted every mention of
their names by the speakers.
Mr. Littleton's arraignment was more
general and more technical. "I lay it
«iowr. as a proposition of law," he thun
dered, "which I can upon any set of law
yers or judges to dispute, that according
fee the laws of New York State there is
BO such crime as disorderly conduct and
that a magistrate has no right whatever
»o send a prisoner, charged with that of
fence to the workhouse. Any girl so com
muted could gain redress through civil
action."
LITTLETON POIXTS THE LAW.
The Epeaker said he would like to com
mend to the police magistrates, "who, no
doubt, have been too busy to read it,"
sa^ction 170 of the Revised Statutes of the
state, which recognized the right of em
ployes to act collectively in refusing to
work, and to persuade others to do so.
Then he discussed the right of employers
with a grievance to seek an injunction in
a court of equity, and asked:
"Why have not your employers resorted
to the higher courts, where your cause
bssjM have been aired before the public, in
stead of Invoking police action? This re
elect of theirs ir-dicates that they are not
sure they are entitled to an injunction
against you strikers.
"Now I understand tnat you have evinced
p willingness to arbitrate on the basis of
recognition of your union, and that your
- lovers refuse this condition. Section
146 of the labor law of the state compels
recognition of a union. I would sug
gest the advisability of your pointing this
out to your employers "
Mr Dawsor; paid more attention to the
: .:•€-. He began by quoting the sections
t •' law allowing arrest without a warrant,
and denounced the majority of arrests in
: twaist strike troubles as illegal.
*.op of this he heaped charges of brutai
and Ulltall MUSS, naming over a long list
of casualties, for which the victims had
I no redress from the magistrates.
-."•;. time I ever appeared in a
magistrate' 6 court was before Magistrate
Cornel] as counsel for a girl whom he sent
ta the workhouse on an utter Insufficiency
Of evidence," said he. "She was committed
ler the accumulative sentence act. since,
f bjo bad fined her. somebody would
promptly have paid ncr fine, and he would
v .sve been cheated out of inflictics a Jail
nee. . : '•
"WHAT MAGISTRATE BARLOW SAID.
'As for Magistrate Barlow, I can't speak
BB personal experience, because all the
er strike cases were handled by my as-
The latter quoted to me, how
ever, a remark cf the justice which I will
repeat for your benefit. Magistrate Barlow
I ray associate on one occas-.cn that the
r.ad been Ehowieg- the girl

to-morrow.' " -
The chairman of the meettrrg, Mrs.
Frank H. Cothren, expressly sard before
tne first speaker that the gath
tringr was not one of socialists or of suf
fragists, but of just New Tork citizens
anxious for their rights. In front of the
FT,eakers' desk hung a placard saying:
The Workhouse Is No Answer to a De
mand for Justice" And from many of
■ i boxes depended the banners of the va
sa women's movements — the Women's
Henry George League, the Socialist Wor
n Committee of the Socialist Party, the
WotDSD'M Trade Union League and others,
ikers, besides Mr. Dawson and Mr.
•leton. were Morris Killquit and Miss
Leonora Reilly.
A committee appointed two weeks ago
by the Rev. Dr. Henry A. Stimson, of
the Manhattan Congregational Church,
Broadway and 76th street, to inquire Into
th* Ftrlke of the shirtwaist makers, re
ported last night, following the service,
' that the women and girls engaged in this
industry have practically won their strike
on the main poinc of contention, namely,
ttks recognition of their union, since two
thirds of the operatives are at work
under union conditions; that the strike in
its present stage, in our opinion, can be
adjusted without sacrifice of principle by
urn to work under union conditions
of the young women still on strike, the
segregation of non-union employes In
fhops to b« designated by the employers,
and the creation of a joint conference
committee "
With regard to Ticketing, the report said
♦hat there had been much exaggeiation
as to police and Judicial abuses, the tes
timony of members of the press being In
effect that the magistrates, with a single
exception, had favored the girl prisoners
wherever possible.
PHILADELPHIA MASS MEETING.

to-day. John J. Murphy, president of the
Central Labor Union, who presided, an
nounced that a special meeting of his or
ganization would be held on Thursday to
provide financial support to the strikers.
The theatre was filled with strikers, who
were urged by the various Bpeakers to
stand firm for the recognition of their
union. Raymond Robbins, of Chicago, and
Miss O. Schneiderman and I. Goldstein, of
New York, were the principal speakers.
John Mitchell, who had been invited to
speak, sent a telegram expressing his sym
pathy with the strike.
DEMANDS ON RAILROADS HALT.
Committees for Trainmen and Con
ductors Not Ready for Negotiations.
On behalf of the Brotherhood of Railroad
Trainmen and the Order of Railroad Con
ductors, which have made demands for
higher wages on ail railroads east of the
Mississippi, it was reported by their local
officers last evening that the demands would
lie In abeyance as far as negotiations with
the companies are concerned until about the
20th of this month.
This, it was explained, was because the
election of the local finance committees
and their officers, which takes place every
two years, was held last month. The new
grievance committees and their local chair
men went into office on January 1, but it
was stated that the chairmen of the local
divisions on each system have yet to elect
general chairmen for each system.
These constitute the general committee
which conducts negotiations with the com
panies after demands are made, and the
local chairmen will begin to elect them this
week.

HEROINES OF SHIRTWAIST STRIKE
MORSE OFF TO CELL
Continued from Brst par*-
marshal and the two deputies beside
him.
The run to the Cortlandt street ferry
of the Pennsylvania Railroad was made
slowly. There were many minutes tc
wait before the 9:30 boat pulled out into
the stream, but there were few persons
about and they paid no attention to the
taxi cab.
Arrived at the Jersey City terminal.
Marshal Henkel left his charge in the
custody of his deputies while he went
upstairs and busied himself with the ac
commodations for the trip to the South.
There was a long wait for the Birming
ham special of the Southern Railway to
pull out at 10:43 o'clock, but Morse pre
ferred to remain in the seclusion of the
taxicab. The marshal returned in about
twenty minutes and took his prisoner,
still unshackled, into the main waiting
room and thence to the train, the quar
tet looking like a travelling party of
business men.
Besides Morse's two sons, who had
followed their father on a later boat to
the station, there was probably no one
In the station or on the train who recog
nized the prisoner. The Morse boys fol
tcwed in and entered the compartment
reserved for their father in the Ross
more, the last sleeping car on the train.
COMFORTS HIS SONS.
At this meeting with his sons Morse
seemed nearer to breaking down than at
any other time, but apparently feeling
that the young men needed comforting
he told them that everything would come
out all right.
Marshal Henkel went with his prisoner
to Washington, where he will turn Morse
over to the deputies. If the train ar
rives in Atlanta on schedule time, Morse
should be housed and settled in the fed
eral penitentiary by noon to-day. Mrs.
Morse did not go to the train to bid
good-by to her husband. It is said she
will leave this afternoon for her old
home so as to be near her husband.
Martin W. Littleton, counsel for Morse,
did not go to see his client depart. Mr.
Littleton said that he had had no hand
in the preparation of the statement given
out by Mr. Morse, as the latter had ex
pressed a wish to tell the public for him
self what he thought of his conviction.
When he >vas told that Mr. Morse had
said he had "hoped that he would not
have to close out forever the light and
liberty of this world under such an in
human sentence." and asked if he felt
any fear that his client's health was
such that he could not last out his term.
Mr. Littleton declared, "Not the slight
est!" The lawyer said that nothing as
yet had been done toward getting up a
petition to President Taft in Morse's be
half. It was too early, Mr. Littleton
added, to discuss plans for th^ relief of
the imprisoned banker.
When seen at her home yesterday Mrs.
Morse gave out the following statement:
"I am going to Atlanta 'to-morrow, and
I will probably live there until my hus
band is released. I will devote all my
time in getting up a petition to that end.
In the last two weeks I have received
thousands of letters, all the writers ex
pressing sympathy with my husband and
their readiness to sign a petition in hie
behalf.' 1
Although she would not cay definitely
what train she Intended to take, it is
understood that she will leave Jersey
City for Atlanta on the 10:43.
Both of Mr. Morse's sons are to con
tinue their studies, but they will give
every help in their power to the efforts
to obtain Mr. Morse's release
Washington, Jan. 2. — Charles W. Morse,
the convicted New York banker, who is on
his way to Atlanta to begin 'he serving of
a fifteen-year penitentiary sentence, was in
Washington fifteen minutes to-day between
the arrival and departure of trains, but he
refused to see any one. and made no state
ment whatever.
Marshal Henkel, who had charge of the
prisoner, left the train here and returned
to New York, and his deputies, Steibling
and Linicus, continued the rest of the Jour
ney with Morse to Atlanta.
Mr. Morse was seen for a moment from
the outside as the blind of the window was
raised. He glanced outside, but apparently
took no interest in anything he saw. His
face wore a calm but stern expression. The
train departed for Atlanta at 4:15 o'clock.
Passengers on the same car with Mr.
Morse 6tated that Benjamin Morse, a son
of the banker, boarded the train at Balti
more, and stayed with his father for a few
minutes.

A public meeting in the interest of

gie Hall on the evening of Monday, Janu

tUFALS IN OPERA
NO PLANS TO UNITE.
Both Manhattan and Metropol
itan Interests Deny Rumors.
Both Oscar Hammerstein and a director
of the Metropolitan Opera company denied
yesterday that negotiations were under way
to effect a merger between the Manhattan
and the Metropolitan opera companies.
While Mr. Hammerstein said again that
Buch a merger would improve the conditions
now prevalent In the operatic field, he add
ed that he had conferred with no one in
authority at the Metropolitan Opera House
on the subject.
Mr. Hammerstein gave out the following
statement:
"For the last few days most of the dailies
have dwelt upon the possibilities and proba
bilities of a merger of my operatic inter
ests with those of the Metropolitan. One
somnambulist press statement even accuses
me of having mischievously refused $1,000,
000 to give up opera, and probably devote the
remainder of my life to artistic cannibalism
in the Fiji Islands. I have never suggested
or offered such a merger, nor have I been
in communication with any one in author
ity in the Metropolitan Opera Company on
the subject.
"I certainly favor and will gladly par
ticipate in any movement by which many
conditions detrimental to the interests of
both institutions could be abolished and
by which the public would derive many
benefits in an artistic sense. I have no
Intention of leaving the operatic field or
of severing my connection with the great
artists surrounding me, of whose loyalty
1 am ever so proud. I rather like my job.
"While it may not affluently keep me in
bread and butter, it will certainly keep me
in hot water without the expense of fuel."
A director of the Metropolitan Opera
House was emphatic in his deniel of the
reported merger and authorized this state
ment:
"Any statement that negotiations are
under way between Mr. Arthur Hammer
stein, representing the Manhattan Opera
Company, and the Metropolitan Opera
Company, looking to a merger between
these companies. Is without foundation.
Any such agreement would be undesir
able,, both from an artistic and financial
standpoint. Stories circulated that th«
Metropolitan Opera Company has offered
Mr. Hammerstein compensation In order
to retire from the operatic field are like
wise without foundation and could only
have originated in the fertile brain of th«
person most interested.
"The aim of the Metropolitan Opera Com
pany and its allied interests is to give the
very best opera possible, not only In New
York, but also in those cities where there
is a demand for operatic performances of
a high order. The Metropolitan is not
looking to the materialistic side of the
question, namely, whether opera pays cr
whether It does not; and while it is true
that under present conditions it is well
nigh impossible to place opera on a re
munerative basis, this phase of the situa
tion does not embarrass the management
In the slightest degree.
"The whole proposition is a very much
broader one than Is generally supposed.
In fact, it is of national scope. By this I
mean that under the leadership of the
Metropolitan Opera Company it will not be
at all improbable that in time an operatic
basis may be established in every principal
city in the United States. In connection
with this, I have only to cite the recent
formation of the Metropolitan Chicago
Opera Company, whereby Chicago is to
have an operatic season of twenty weeks,
beginning the coming fall. This is the en
tering wedge in the great West."
A YOUTHFUL WILLIAM TELL.
Boy Arrested After Air Rifle Slug Hits
Playmate.
Joseph Gerentzy, nine years old, of No.
211 East 105 th street, was arrested last
night on a charge of juvenile delinquency.
The reason for the charge, according to the
police of the East 104 th street station, is
that Joseph tried to emulate the exploit of
William Tell and shoot a snowball frefm
the head of his playmate. David Lehman,
who lives at the East 105 th street address.
Among Joseph's Christmas presents was
an air rifle, and he has been busy showing
it to. his friends ever since. Yesterday he
suggested to Divid that they play William
Tell. The latter had never heard of the
game, but he fell in with the idea, and
allowed Joseph to place a snowball on top
of his head ard then, at a distance of ten
feet, take careful aim with his rifle.
At the discharge the snowball toppled
from David's head and he gave a cry of
pain. The shot had struck him in the up
per lip. He was attended by Dr. Mc-
Coombs, of the Harlem Hospital, who said
the wound was not serious.
HIGHWAYMEN'S VAIN EFFORT.
Got a Mutilated Ping of Tobacco and
Were Arrested as Well.
Rohert Caton, who is a ship's fireman
and lives at the Seamen's Institute, at No.
007 West street, is of a thrifty disposition,
and when he goed out on a Saturday night
he leaves his money at the inst.tute. The
two men who held htm up at the point of
a revolver at West and Jane sir* eta, as he
was returning home e^iiy yesterday morn
ing, didn't know this, and attacked their
intended victim in approved fash. on. Whiu,
one of the men held him against a wall
and flourished a revolver, the other man
w«nt through his pockets. The search re
vealed a mutilated plug of tobacco. There
was nothing else. The men took the to
bacco.
Later Caton reported the occurrence to

LOOKS LlKi: ALLDS
AS SENATE LEADER.
Interest in Opening of Legis
lature Centres in Caucuses.
[By THegTaph to Th« Tribune.]
Albany, Jan. 2. — Interest in the open
ing of the Legislature of 1910 at noon on
Wednesday centres in the party caucus
to be held on Tuesday evening to select
the candidates for offices in both houses.
The outcome of the caucus of Republi
can Senators when a new leader is to be
chosen to succeed the late Senator
Raines is attracting the most attention.
Indications point to the election of
Senator Jotham P. Ailds, of Chenanaro.
the present chairman of the Finance
Committee. Mr. Allds has always been
friendly to the old regime in the Legis
lature, and is looked on as opposed to
the policies recommended by Governor
Hughes. For this and other reasons
triends of Governor Hughes intend to
make a fight against him.
Senator Harvey D. Hlnman. of Bing
hamton, has announced his willingness
Lo lead the Republican forces if he is
called on to do so, and rumblings within
the orerani-ation a?<tinst Alids fore
shadow a line-up of opposing forces be
fore the choice Is finally recorded. Those
who favcr the policies of Governor
Hughes are expected to support Senator
Hinman. who was the introducer of the
Hinman-Green direct nominations bill
in the Senate last year.
Buffalo has a candidate for the place
in Senator George Davis, present chair
man of the Judiciary Committee and a
veteran legislator, but Mr. Davis has not
indicated any great ambition to assume
the responsibilities of leadership.
Senator Allds's promotion would leave
a vacancy in the chairmanship of
finance, which Senator George Cobb, of
Watertown, is anxious to fill. If Cobb
gets the place he will give up the chair
manship of Railroads, to which Senator
J. M. Wainwright. of Westchester. may
be assigned.
Senator Thomas F. Grady. for years
the Tammany spokesman, will continue
ar minority leader.
Chief interest in the Assembly caucuses
centres in the fight which William M.
Bennett, of New York, Is making against
the re-election of Ray B. Smith, cf Syra
cuse, as clerk of the House. Mr. Ben
nett is backing the candidacy of ex-As
semblyman James A. Francis, of New
York. Mr. Smith, whose election is con
sidered probable, will open headquarters
at the Hotel Ten Eyck to-morrow.
Speaker James W. Wa-lsworth, jr., of
Livingston; Henry C. Lammert. of
Brooklyn, stenographer, and Bernard J.
Haggerty, of Rochester, sergeant-at
arms, probably will be re-elected.
The Democrats are expected to vote
for Daniel D. Frisbie for Speaker, which
carries with it the Democratic leadership
of the House. Mr. Frisbie is the present
leader.
Governor Hughes will send his fourth
annual message to the Legislature on
Wednesday. The Governor is expected
to renew many of his former recommen
dations, including those calling for di
rect primary nominations and baliot re
form, New York City charter revision,
an extension of the powers of the Public
Service commissions to include juris
diction over telephone and telegraph
companies. employeis' liability law
amendments and automobile legislation
Both houses will adjourn for the usual
week's recess, when committee assign
ments will be made. Several changes' in
the make-up of Senate committees will
have to be made by Lieutenant Governor
White as a result of the deaths of Sen
ators Raines. McCarren and O'Neill, but
it is not expected that the committee list
will be completed until after the elec
tion of Senator Raines's successor en
January '25. The election of many new
Assemblymen will make necessary ir-;
portant changes in committees in the
lower house.
[By Telegraph to The Tribune. 1
B'nghamton. N. T. Jan. 2.— Senator
Hiuman announces again that he wiH
not make a fight for the position of Sen
ate leader, but if it comes to him he w*H
accept. This announcement followed a
statement yesterday that the organiza
tion forces were swinging toward him.
The Broome County Senator before the
death of Senator Raines had decided
that this would be his last year in the
Legislature, but if he is chosen leader he
will become a candidate next fall. Sen
ator Hlnman declares that the leader
ship matter is at present all in the air.
ON FIRE: JUMPED IN SNOW.
Girl, Clothes Ablaze, Wanted to Save
Employer's House.
The prompt action of Jennie Rothman in
jumping from a window on the second
story of the building at No. 426 Stone street,
Brooklyn, last evening, when her clothing
was ignited from the grate of the kitchen
stove, will probably save her life. She
landed in a snow pile, and extinguished the
flames by rolling over and over in the
snow. She was taken to St. Mary's Hos
pital, where it was said that she had an
even chance of recovery.
The girl, who is seventeen years old. was
-loins some light laundry work in the home
of Dr. W. Pultchlnsky during the absence
of the family. In taking an iron from the
stove she stepped too near the open grate,
and in a moment her clothing was in
flames. She tried to beat the fire out, but
her efforts were unsuccessful. Running to
a window, she opened ii and Jumped. At
the hospital she said that she wanted to get
out of the building as soon as possible so
that it would not catch In '

SCHOONER WEATHERS GALE.
Vessel Reported Badly Crippled Makes
Port After Hard Fight.
Vineyard Haven. Mass., Jar.. 2. — Bearing
vgly scars of a terrific experience in the
Christmas blizzard, the schooner George P.
Hudson, with coal, from Norfolk for Bos
ton, arrived here to-day. Anxiety for the
safety of the Hudson had been felt in Nor
folk, although the steamer Katahdin, which
arrived in Boston on Friday, reported hav
ing sighted the schooner on Wednesday off
Five Fathom Bank Lightship, badly crip
pled, but refusing assistance.
Ear'.y last Sunday morning, when off the
Virginia Capes, the vessel's violent plung
ing snapped one of the anchor chains, and
she began to drag off shore. Weighted
down by her cargo of coal, the Hudson was
buried beneath huge seas. It was impossi
ble for any of the crew to live on deck.
Cabin windows and doors were broken.
Boats were wrenched from tjieir davits.
The riding sails were blown to ribbons, and.
tr> add to the dangers, the cargo shifted,
giving the vessel a bad list to starboard.
When the gale abated somewhat Monday
night Captain Thomas set the crew at
work in the hold to shovel the coal back to
its proper position, and she reached here
to-day with only a two-foot list. She will
probably be towed to Boston.
