Big Bakeries Taking Brunt of
Union Onslaught.
Broadway Restaurants Fare
Better-Strike Leaders Re
main Confident.
Bread was still scarce in parts of Man
hattan and Brooklyn yesterday owing 1 to
the strike of the bakers, but there was
more of a dearth in Manhattan, the larj^e
concerns affected by 'the strike being very
short of men. According to the leaders of
the strike, six hundred French bakers em
ployed in the hotels will strike to-day.
The bakers who struck before in half a
dozen of the hotels were Germans.
It seemed to be the consensus of opinion
among the proprietors of the principal
hotels and restaurants In the Broadway
district that the strike of the bakers would
not affect them appreciably. The great
majority of these places either bake their
■own bread or buy from outsiders.
At Stanley's restaurant it was said that
all the breadstuffs were bought from an in
dependent baker, while at the Hotel Astor
"William C. Muschenhelm, the proprietor,,
said that he employed his own bakers, and
that even if this were not the case bread
and rolls could b*s brought from Philadel
phia, Baltimore or Boston and 'reach New
York fresh In time for breakfast. None of
the hotel proprietors who was questioned
thought that he would be affected by the
Strike Leaders Outline Demands.
The strike in Yonkers was reported to be
practically won yesterday, and Charles
Iffiand. general organizer of the Journey
men Bakers ar.d Confectioners' Interna
tional Onion, who was looking after the
strike there, cum to the cfty to assist
August Ganzer. the Now York strike leader.
Organizer Iffland and Herman Kintlein, of
the executive committee of the union, made
a joint statement in which they said:
•'It is not a fart that the union wants to
run the business of the master bakers.
The men want the -union recognized, as the
best way of getting fair wages and good
working conditions."
The 6trik9 commHr<=° said that the
kosher bread firms, whose bak<--rp were not
strike, were supplying thousands of
loaves and rolls to hotels and restaurants,
lelphia, master bakers
were also sending- breari here. The amount
they supplied, however, was not enough to
Police Guard Bakeries.
The representatives of FleischmanrTs
and Cushman's bakeries admitted that new
men were difficult to get. a representative
of the Fleischmann company said that.
while matters were improving, there was
•:!! a shortage in ' the restaurants they
6-jpplied with bread. To guard against
trouble th^re were policemen at all the
doors of the bakery and police near each
corner. Ten new men were brought to
work *ro:n Philadelphia, and were taken to
the factory in the evening under guard.
The firm. it was stated, has now something
over thirty men working.
"We* will get all the men we need event
ually," said a renresentatlve of the firm,
"but in a case of this kind It is slow work
at the first. We have had little trouble.
except for the gathering of crowds around
the factory after dark. The mischief
makers, for the most part, however, are
rot strikers, but either sympathizers or
Alleged Striker Stabbed.
One strike incident yesterday was a stab
bing and a number of small fights. The
•■tabbing took place near the headquarters
of the strikers, in the Labor Temple, where
It was reported that three men were
stabbed : but names were not given and
the police knew of only one. An alleged
strikebreaker named John Koboo was near
ing his liomse, No. £2 West End avenue,
after working in the Cushman bakery, at
No. 507 "West £Sth street, when he was held
up by the pickets and asked not to go to
work again. Koboc refused to agree to
this, and one of the picket?. John Por
schalk. of No. >> Amsterdam avenue, held
him. There was a scrimmage, and it is
charged that Koboc drew a small pen
knife and stabbed Forschalk. making his
escape In the confusion. A comrade named
Brodke took Porschalk to Roosevelt Hos
pital, where his wounds were dressed.
Some time later Koboc was arrested near
his home on the charge of felonious as
sault. Koboc made a charge of assault at
the police btatlon against Brodke.
Just after .the strikers attended a meet-
Ing at their headquarters. in the Labor
Temple, they saw George Stsmz, of No.
m East 133t1t street, driving a wagon of
bread from EgWs bakery, C2d street and
West End avenue. A mob of several hun
dred surrounded the wagon. Some of the
mob held the horse while others clambered
on the wagon and tossed the loaves to the
street, tier* they were trampled and
kicked around. Policeman Herbert, of the
Ejtst fMh street st.ition. heard the noise,
and »'he» he raw what was going „,, t. ie

Terrible Time Over Scrubbing of
the Queens Courthouse.
If threats made yesterday are kept. It
may be Impossible to get any sixty vote
resolutions appropriating money through
the Board of Aldermen. The deadlock be
tween the Democratic majority and the Re
publican minority came yesterday over the
question of giving Borough President
Gresser of Queens an amount of money
for cleaning the new courthouse, which Is
considered exorbitant by experts.
The debate caused a dispute between
Alderman Downing and certain Democratic
members, in which he called them dirty
ruffians, loafers. Jackasses and black
guards. It looked for a time as if the meet
ing might break up in a fight.
The original request was for $19,000. After
it had been defeated twice by the board
Mr. Gresser consented to cut It down to
$12,600, and it was reported out by the
Finance Committee yesterday. Alderman
Johnson. minority leader, immediately
moved to amend by making the amount

Alderman Walsh said Mr. Johnson was
grinding the face of the poor scrubwoman
who got only $2 a day, and that that sort
of work caus' d socialism.
"T want to say right now." he declared,
"that unless President Gresser gets the
money he wants I shall not vote for any
appropriation for a RepirWlcan depart
ment head." Alderman Tower said he
wouid follow the lead of Walsh. "I shall
vote against every Republican request,"
he saM. "no matter how ridiclous it makes
m*». If they want to play petty larceny
politics I shall give them fair warning of
what to expect."
As Alderman Downing started on cne of
his Inng speeches Alderman Levine b^gan
to rap on the desk. "Blackguard :" cried.
Downing, in a rage. As other Democrats
laughed, he added: "Dirty loafers! Jack
asses! Sou are ruffians from the .East
Prr-Pkient Mttchel was banging with his
gavel, and aldermen were Jumping up from
all over the room. "Does the Alderman
refer to me?" asked Alderman White. "I
am from the East Side."
"No, I did not mean you! "
"Ha. ha! He's afraid of you!" called l-e
vine, recalling that While used to be well
known in the prize ring.
"There be goes again. Blackguard! Sffs
• ruffian!" shouted Downing.
"I call upon th*» chair to insist upon the
withdrawal of this scurrilous and unpar
liamentary language," said Alderman
"I withdraw it." said Alderman Down
ing, "bur. It is true just the same."
The amendment was lost, but the orig
inal resolution lacked twenty-four of the
necessary sixty votes to pass.

•The work of this association," he said,

Americans and America better understood
by Chinese. One of the chief objects of
my mission is to promote this good under

Americans are taking a greater interest in
wliat is going on in China. Our officials
and merchants are beginning to travel more
to foreign countries. This thirst for in
formation is having its effect upon the
whole country. China is passing through a
great crisis. The old order of things is
