Great Riltnln's railway sjstcm was again in operation today ns the result of the settlement yesterday of the crcat" railway strike, which apparently had brought the coun try nlmost to the brink of n revolution. Virtually every man engaged in rail way work in London returned to his duty before 0 o'clock this morninc. The arlous rail services did not speedily reach the normal state, however, be cause of the displacement of the rnil- SofcWay's material that naci resuiteu irom the suspension ot wont. In the country districts also the re sumption uas general, except In the 'outlying districts, where telegrams an nouncing the settlement and ordering the men back to work could not be de livered last night. The railway companies promised to day that virtually regular service would be in operation on their lines tomorrow. The settlement was the result of n long confeience between a tradc nnlon delegation, including representa tives of the Knilwaymen's Union, nnd l'remicr lAOn oeorge nnu imurew llonar Law in the famous conference room in Downing street.. Prior to this there was a cabinet meeting. The official terms of the settlement, in the nature of a compromise, follow : "First. Work shall be resumed im mediately. "Second. Negotiations will be re sumed on the understanding that they shall be completed before the end of the year. "Third. "Wages will be stabilized at the present level until September 20, 1020, and at any time after August 1 they may bo leviewed in the light of circumstances then existing. Minimum Wage $12.75 n Week "Fourth. No adult railwayman in Great Britain shall receive less than fifty-one shillings a week whHo the cost of living is 110 per cent above the pre-war level. ., "Fifth. The railway unions agree that their men iwlll work harmoniously with the men who returned to work or who remained at work during the strike. Ndr shall there bo any vic timization of strikers, "Sixth. Arrears of wages will be paid on resumption ot work." After the announcement of the set tlement of the strike Prima Minister Iilnvd Qcorgo paid n visit to the king. The conference in Downing street was n very friendly affair. All pres ent seemed to anticipate a settlement, and after Premier Lloyd George had explained the new terms he lett tho delegates to discuss them. When the luncheon hour arrived the premier sug gested that all stay, instead of sep arating. A raid was made on the Downing street commissariat, and, finding It equal to the needs ot the largo party, n jovial meal followed, the premier's secretaries carrying the joint and assisting In carving It, while jokes flew around the table. Labor leaders Satisfied Leaders of the national union of iall wajmen, who directed the strike which was settled yesterday, declare their sat isfaction with the arrangement In mes sages to the Herald, organ of union labor. "Tho men stood four-square, deter mined to secure victory or go down together," declares Secretary Thomas. "Tho settlement brings home great gains." He nppeals to railwaymcn to con soldiate their organization and make their forces stronger than ever so as to "gain for all members a higher standard of life." C. T. Cramp, president of the union, says: "While wc did not obtain the for mula we set forth in the strike resolu ilnn. ui. nhtnlned terms equally good, which will gUc the rallwajmen the same thing in effect. Our men have broken the back of tho first attack made upon the entire worKing ciass. nnd no doubt this splendid stand will save w oi kern from a degraded standard of life." ,T. Bromley, secretary of the Society of Firemen and Engineers, asserts: "The settlement is highly satisfactory. There is greater value in it than ap pears at first sight." Flood Destroyed Most of Town Mexico City. Oct C Advices ic ceived here shv that two -thirds of the town of Tonnla, in the state of Chiapas, was destroved as n result of the Hoods late in September. Sixtv bodies have been recovered, but they are believed to be n very small fraction of the aggregate of dead. Many inhabi tants, driven to the hills, are reported to be dving of starvation or exposure.

Mr. Gay durante la gucrra compl ADVERTISEMENT ADVBRT1SEME?T The ultimate test by which a "business stands or 'falls is that of service. If service is prompt nnd efficient, satisfied customers return to buy again. . If a salesman is indifferent or discourteous, they go elsewhere. It is with a great deal of pride that a Chestnut Street merchant will tell you (and back it up with action, too) that one of the chief principles upon which the success of the Chestnut Street Shops has been founded is the prompt and courteous attention given to cus tomers by the salespeople in these stores. A DIMINUTIVE pagoda perched perilously on the side of a mountain in a manner alto gether Japanese forms an interest ing detail in the decoration of a floor lamp which I saw at the store of H. D. Dougherty & Co., 1632 Chestnut Street. An attractive shade on another floor lamp; has a classic decoration of leaves in a border at top and bottom. On another, a bright-hued 'parrot disports itself on a bough of apple-blossoms, happy, no doubt, in finding a spot where it might say exactly what it pleased. A carved candlestick, painted in shades of soft dark green and mul berry, would look equally well with cacved French Gothic furniture or with the lacquered Chinese Chippen dale. It has a parchment Shade painted in subdued colors. FEW people know what a vaiiety of fruits are obtainable at this season of the year. I was really amazed at the wide range of choice afforded by the new arrivals at the i store of Henry R. Hallowell & Son, Broad street, below Chestnut. Hot- -houso grapes from Colmar, Belgium, look very tempting. Then there are the Winter Nelis and the Cornice Peas 'two very delicious varieties and the Delicious Apples from Pennsylvania, which, like the Honey Dew Melons, live up to their name in all respects. Hallowell's still have some of those luscious Japanese Plums from California and Alligator Pears from tropical Florida. Assem bled in a gift basket, these fruits make a most acceptable remem brance for any occasion. The bas kets can, of course, like the loose fruits, bo shipped safely by parcel post, special delivery. AVE you visited tho new hosiery department on the first floor of Oppenhcim, Col lins & Co. store? If youthaven't you will bo just as delighted as" I was to discover it, for you will -find there every kind of stocking needful to complete your varied toilettes. There are plain glove silk Btockings for wear with your tailored suit and stockings with .embroidered clocks, nnd there are very effective lace and openwork clocks, too. With tho re turn of short skirt3 even tho most conservative of us are considering embroidered stockings. One pair at Oppenhelm, Collins, embroidered at the instep, has a merlallion of lace inset. For evening wear there, are stocklnrjs of gold and silver and silk Btockings with lisle tops in all shades. ttzfbrymJks frcxA TO SAVE you the trouble and general inconvenience attend ant upon the cleaning' of the sink every time you wash your dishes, the Amico Sink-Protecting Dish Pan has been invented. It is made of copper-bearing tin plate, which means that it is rust resistant, and rubber legs protect the enamel of the sink against scratches. A stopper in the bottom of the pan can bo removed, allowing the water to run out through a strainer drawer, which catches any refuse. One fea ture that especially appealed to me when I inspected the pan at the store of J. Franklin Miller, 1612 Chestnut Street, is that after you have washed your dishes you can leave the stop per out, run hot water over the dishes in the pan, and they will be ready to dry. IF YOUR wedding stationery beais the name of Bailey, Banks & Biddle, you can be sure of' the excellence 'of its quality as well as of careful workmanship in every de tail of engraving. The importance of making certain of the correctness of such small details as the color and texture of the paper, the style of let tering, etc., need hardly be dwelt upon, when one considers the number of eyes which gaze upon a wedding invitation or announcement. It is an indication of your own good taste, as well as a compliment to your friends, to select wedding stationery of the ouality sold by Bailey, Banks and Biddle Co. Envelopes will be mailed upon receipt of tho order, if you so desire, so that they can be stamped and addressed. WITH the advent of chill fall days we arc beginning to ap preciate again the comfort of the fireside. What is more sooth ing and soul-satisfying than to sink into an armchair before a roaring fire, prop your feet on the fender and listen to a song such as "My Ain Folk," an old Scotch folk-song with a wealth of melody in it, interpreted by an artist such as Maggie Teyte? This pleasure can bo yours if you own an Edison. Phonograph, and if you do not you will want to hear this re-creation on tho New Edison at tho store of N. Stetson & Co, 1111 Chestnut Street. In Stetson's win dow I noticed a wonderfully carved oak caso modeled according to the furniture of the Elizabethan period. It will surely appeal to all lovers of fine old English furniture . I HAD tho privilege a fqw days ago of viewing a collection of greeting cards for the coming holiday season. They surpassed anything I have yet seen in tho courso of my personally conducted shopping tours. As I selected, ono after another, tho cards that particularly appealed to mo, I suspected that some kind spirit must have read my thoughts, so well did design and wording combine, to express the thoughts I had in mind, yet found so difficult to put into words. Those cards will be on display this week at the storo of Frank J. Curry, 812 Chestnut Street, and t , I assure you that they will please tho most critical and exacting taste.
