Wax on the Restaurants Also Begun w iAll Chicago Carries Lunch %y^j in Its Pockets. Chicago, June 13 With the union em ployes of twenty-five hotels, including practically all the large hotels in Chicago, already on strike, the officers of the cooks and waiters' unions announce their in tention this morning of agaln turning their attention to the restaurants, cafes and cafeterias They have decided to stake the success of their movement for better working con ditions, and, if necessary, even the exis tence of their organization, on one effort that is to involve all the resources of their local and international unions Particular attention Is to be given the department store restaurants and their first move will be against them While they did theii work thoroly among the hotels, the strikers have succeeded in only partially crippling the hotel ser vice. Many of the affected establish ments served breakfast with -varying de grees of success to-day and already there Is a noticeable influx of outside help, which is being taken on as fast as pre sented These nonunion employes to gether with the small proportion of the help that has remained loyal enable many of the hotels to care for their guests with comfort Many of the restaurant owners informed their employes to day that those who obeyed the union and struck would be permanently discharged Restaurant own ers and hotel proprietors alike have de cided that unless the unions agree by Monday to submit their grievances to ar bitration in all places where the em ployes have walked out so far the union would be ignored and the employes treated only a individuals Hundreds of business man to-day car ried their lunches from home having learned that the hotel war would prob ably extend to include all restaurants Early in the day George A Schilling in behalf of the National Civic Federation, ^appeared at the strikers headquarters and offered the services of that body to arbitrate the differences between the men and their emplojers Strikers Refuse Arbitration. In addition to the regularly appointed arbitration committee of the federation, it was proposed to invite John Mitchell to become a member for this occasion and *o give him the deciding vote The offer was refused by the strikers who de clared that arbitration would be accepted (Only as a last resort Attempts are being made to complete the tie-up of the hotels by stopping the delivery of supplies Striking waitresses and chambermaids took a hand to-day, hut every effort was made to prevent the pickets, getting into communication with the employes who have remained faithful and with the new recruits Police guards were stationed at each hotel and a con tingent was held at central station ready to answer riot calls.

There is every indication that the strike will be hard-fought The proprie tors declare that the demands made are unreasonable, and the unions claim they have not been fairly treated in that the proprietors agreed to treat as individuals with the unions and have not done so The proprietors have agreed to submit nearly every point at issue to arbitration, but to this the unions will not consent They insist that their demands for higher wages and shorter hours bo granted be fore they will arbitrate anything, and insist also upon the absolute recognition of the union To this latter demand the proprietors Bay they will never agree so long as the strikers maintain their present attitude The proprietors have expressed a will ingness to arbitrate this proposition also, but the men will not recede The unions also demand that the members of the hotel keepers' association come to the officers of the employes' organization as indi viduals and not as members of any asso ciation The strikers are trying to divert sup plies from the hotels, but are not suc cessful to any considerable extent The employes have hopes of bringing to their aid the teamsters' and engineers' unions In order to keep food out of the hotels, and to deprive the establishments of hot water President Young of the teamsters' union declared that his organization would not declare a sympathetic strike beoause the cooks and waiters placed themselves in the wrong in refusing arbitration The officers of the engineers' union made the same declaration and added that the en gineers would remain on duty, no matter if an effort should be made to run the hotels with nonunion help Officers of the Chicago Federation of Labor express similar views Pickets surround every hotel affected, find police are patroling the sidewalks.

WASHINGTON P. 0. AS A BUREAU High Officials Have Used It to Avoid the Civil Service Laws. Report of Chairman Proctor of the Commission Reveals Grave Abuses. And the Irregularities Were Di rected by "High Department Officials." Washington, June 13 Chairman Proc tor of the civil seivice commission to-day submitted to Postmastei General Payne the report made by the commission at the request of the postmaster general with reference to the charge of violation of the civil service regulations in the Washing ton postoffice Mr Proctor's summary of the findings concludes as follows "A departure from the observance of the civil service rules appears in the pro motions of certain employes in the Wash ington postoffice, which have been di rected by the department, altho reports of efficiency are neither requested nor received by the department" S The Information disclosed by the Investigation seems to warrant the statement that appointments to class ified positions in the Washington post office, without examination, by the devious method of appointment in small unclassified offices, or In of fices about to be consolidated, and subsequent transfer, and the appoint ments of those laborers who were appointed and separated during the administration of the present post master, show a wide departure In policy from a strict regard for the public Interest and afford indications that the department used the Wash ington postoffice for political and personal purposes to an extent which left the authority of the postmaster in transfers and appointments of this sort but little more than nominal and placed the office, In many re spects, In the relation of a bureau to the department The Investigation seems to show clearly that most of the Irregularities herein set forth were directed by the department or requested or suggested by high departmental officials, and In either case came to the postmas ter with all the force of a direction. The investigation indicates that the em ployes who entered the service by transfer and without examination, are, in general, inferior to thobe appointed thru compe tition That the service was packed with em ployes in the interests of the individual is indicated by the fact that the number of appointments in the month of the classification was more than twice as great as for the preceding four months These appointments made under the circumstances above set forth resulted in a congestion of the service, and when a reduction is to be made the employes ap pointed for political or personal consider ations are cared for, sometimes at the ex pense of persons appointed upon merit and without influence In relieving the branches of the serv ice thus crowded with employes, trans fers are made to other parts of the serv ice to the injury of eligibles in line for appointment by reason of their ascer tained fitness The rule referring to transfers and new provisions of the revised rules which be came effective on April 15, 1903, will, it is believed, prevent the continuance of these abuses in the classified service, and the adoption at the earliest practicable date of regulations for the employment of laborers in the Washington postoffice, in accordance with the executive order of March 26, 1903, will there is reason to hope put the employment of laborers on the basis of fitness and the needs of the service GIVE HIM ROPE ENOUGH! The Roosevelt Opposition Hoping That the President Will Throw Himself. From The Journal Bureau, Boom 45, Post Build ing:, Washington, Washington, June 13 Following the total collapse of the movement within the republican party to prevent the nomi nation of President Roosevelt next year, some of the secrets of the conspirators are coming to light It is said to be a fact by those who are in position to know that the scheme to defeat the president was more widespread than surface indications at any time suggested In fact, the nucleus of a revolt was organized in near ly all of the northern republican states, just as it was in some of the states of the south, and the best available men in these states were put in charge of it In the south the truth came out prema turely, thru the inability of republican leaders there, on account of factional dif ferences, to keep their own counsel, but In the north this was not the case Di lected from Wall street, this movement in the north at one time promised to be very formidable, and only the activity of the president, aided "by the confidence re posed in him by the masses of the peo ple prevented it from coming to a head Wall street is now saying with conde scension, that it does not propose to put anything in his way, either in the con vention or at the polls Give him enough rope and he will hang himself, say its leading spirits Let Roosevelt run the na tional convention, write the platform, name the candidate for vice-president, and become personally responsible for the conduct of the campaign Then, if a mistake is made, the country will know where to look for the guilty one The complaisance of the opposition in concluding to let the president have a nomination and election, and full charge of party leadership, without further op position, is one of the humors of the oncoming presidential campaign W.

THE RAKE-OFF OF THE ROADS Very Patent Thefts From the Gov ernment That Will Be Diffi* cult to Stop. The Railway Mail Business and How the Roads "Do" the Government. From The Journal Bureau, Room 45, Post Build, in?, Washington, Washington, June 13 There is one branch of the postoffice department which needs investigation, and needs it badly. It is the second assistant postmaster gen eral's department, charged with the an nual expenditure of no less than $58,927,- 453 16 For years there have been rumors of misapplication of funds in this depart ment The condition may be said to be one of chronic, but suppressed, scandal This second assistant's department has charge of all the railway mail business It represents the government in hiring the railways to carry the mails This has developed into a huge business as the above-quoted totals indicate To handle $ 4 Peter the PretenderThey Want an Independence Day and It Doesn't look Much lake a Noiseless Cel- ebration. WIMflWMMIMtHI*M*MWIWHtHlwmmHIIMtlMMWiMltMMIHtMtmtMMlllMIIWtM nearly $60,000,000 worth of government business with the rich and powerful rail way companies, and not have any of the money go wrong anywhere, and to guard the interests of the government with scrupulous care, is something of a strain to weak human nature The general charge, frequently repeated and rather widely believed, is that the railroads are getting a good thingthat they are getting more than legitimate compensation, for carrying the mails Four volumes of statistics are available to prove this It is stated also, by those who ought to know that there is collusion between the railroads and certain of the department employes, by which the rail roads get more than the law contemplates The compensation is based on certain test weighings of mail matter, and these weighings are said to be rigged against the department In addition to these ac cusations, it is related that the railroads use their power, thru their lobby agents, to get certain additional gratuities, in the shape of bounties, which are appropriated out of the public treasury, and are paid to the companies under the guise of "ex- pediting the mails " Nobody denies that there are such bounties They appear in the annual appropriation bills and the reports of the department Last year they amounted to $195 636 25, and this year they will be almost as much The only question in regard to them is whether they are really legitimate expenditures, and whether the legislation is secured in a proper fashion The fact that the department has ceased to recommend these bounties, and that congress goes right on appropriating the money, tells its own story There is a reason why the present inquiry will not be extended to the department of the second assistant postmaster general There is too much influence to**llow it Hun dreds of railroads, with thousands of dol lars at stake, acting thru powerful sena tors, and even thru members of the re publican organization, would be able to put on the brakes These postoffice prof its have come to be regarded by the carrying companies as legitimate -"rake- off," and as a sort of set-off against cam paign contributions and assistance ren dered the party in past elections The only chance for such an inquiry is that the matter may be brought to the attention of President Roosevelt If ho were conviced that corruption exists in this department, it is hardly to be doubt ed that he would order Bristow to go ahead and get at the bottom of it W W Jermane. NO UNION HEN , TO BE EMPLOYED Manufacturers in Shelbyville, Ind., Boycott All Union Labor, They Say They Cannot Depend on JtHrBTJnio Union Being Organised. New York Sun Special Service. Indianapolis, June 13.The numerous strikes which have retarded building and manufacturing since April 1 at Shelby ville culminated to-day in all the union men. in that city being placed on the black list, and no union man will hereafter be employed. All of the master builders and factory owners have set their faces against the union, and some of the largest manufacturers have closed the doors of their plants till other labor can be secured. The immediate cause of this action was a third strike at the furniture factory of the Foster company and threatened sympathetic strikes of union men employed in other industries E m ployers say they cannot depend any longer KILLED BY A FAST.

Lincoln, Neb , June 13 Officials of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers are authority for the statement that within the next two months the order will have regained almost absolute control of the Burlington, a railroad that was lost to them fifteen years ago after a severe labor struggle Many of the old strike breakers occupy well paying positions op the road, but they have been induced to join the union But 5 per cent of the men west of the river are said to be without the broth erhood fold General Superintendent Cal vert says that symptoms of a desire to get hold of the road have been shows, but he does not believe the men who are well paid and well treated will join a labor organization. The fact is that the work has been so secretly done that the rail road officials outside of Jim Hill are not aware of what has been going on. Telegraphers Oppose the Santa Fe. Chicago, June 13 The Order of Rail road Telegraphers has declared a boycott against the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railroad, a circular letter signed by the president having been received by the get hold of the road have been shown, hut ticket agents of all the roads centering^n Chicago The letter asks the ticket agents when routing passengers and freight to discriminate against the Santa Fe The trouble between the telegraphers and the Santa F e is of long standing In 1899 the telegraphers and station agents became dissatisfied with their pay and working conditions and sent a committee to Chicago to make demands, and, after many conferences a strike was called The officers of the order say that the company, by subterfuge, Induced the men to return to work at the end of seventeen days, and they also say that those who took part in the strike have been discrim inated against ever since by the Santa Fe and some other roads.

Winnipeg, Man, June 13 Percy F Marks, special correspondent of the Finan cial News of London, England, on his way home from a trip around the world, in an interview, attributed Mr Chamber lain's recent action In favor of preferen tial trade to his visit to South Africa, where he came personally in touch with colonial opinion. "The members of the British cabinet who opposed Chamberlain have not the opinion and attitude of the colonies," he said As to the chances of success for Mr Chamberlain's propaganda, Mr Marks said he believed they were very good and that a favorable verdict would be given by the British electorate in the very near future "The verj| large majority in parliament on the vote the other day," he continued, "was no index of the state of public opin ion in the country The members had never sought or received the verdict of the electorate on the issues involved Pro tection sentiment is much stronger in Britain than many seem to believe it."

The New Attitude Due to Growth of Competition Promoted by ^Monopoly. America's sugar trust has thrown down the bars and declared that from now on, no attempt will be made by it to restrict the price of that great staple Mercantile circles are discussing the new program and wondering if it will result in a partial revolution of grocery trade methods. To have a great trust say that it is ready to pass by the jobber and sell the retailer direct wherever it m ay be neces sary for its own interests is hanging a cloud of possibilities over the present system of distributing merchandise the effect of which only the future can tell. Among western wholesale grocers, opinion is divided, but a large number incline to the belief that it Is likely to result in a partial revolution in the wholesale grocery business. Since the big trusts or combinations were formed with the object of controll ing the market on various staple articles of food, there has been much discussion about wiping out the jobber or middle man In the past few years this talk died out, as It has been the policy of the trusts to use the jobber as a distributor of their goods wherever they could con trol the situation or get at least a fair share of the business But the argument which has been advanced in various quar ters that the trust problem contained within it the elements for its own regula tion or solution, seems to have been well demonstrated in the case of the sugar trust It now has fierce competition which it has been forced to respect by throwing its old equality plan of dis tribution away and going after the busi ness in a free-for-all fight with the sev eral other factors in the sugar field with out respect to the jobbers' position This naturally means lower sugar for the consumer than would be possible under a harmonious situation among the sugar refiners At the same time it tends to smaller profits in the buying and selling of sugar which hits both jobber and retailer whose best and surest profits in sugar have been made on a stable market The Standard Oil company was the first, of the big trusts to go direct to the re taller with its product and. in some cases in the northwest where the retainer h as not been diligent in protecting its products it has one direct to the con Burner. The Standard Oil company has, competition, but Its methods of fighting - competition are directed toward getting: all of the business It can without regard&v, to other factors In the distribution of " merchandise. That the sugar trust is j .gradually getting around to that position tk thru the pressure of competition is far"?a more interesting to the wholesale grocer* *| because sugar constitutes a large per-^8 centage of his sales* What the effect 2 will be on other lines Is a problem. $ Origin of "Equality Plan." % When the trust was formed, it con- % trolled TO per cent of the output. To I make its position commanding, It needed the friendship of the distributors of the country This was not hard to get, par ticularly in the west, where sugar had ,been sold practically at a loss for years. Out of that arrangement grew the equality plan of selling sugar whereby the retail dealer paid the New York card! * * price with the freight to his town added. 4 This gave a stable market. The trust increased its percentage of the total out- ^ put of the country by acquiring more g jplants and for a time was in absolute 3 contcol -4 GOOD READING Will be found in The Journal Fiction Sup- The effect on prices was quickly seen by close students of the situation, altho the fall in raw material prices disguised the true situation from the oonsumer Before the trust was organized the difference be tween the cost of raw sugar to the re finer and the figure at which the retailer purchased from the jobber was not more than three-quarters of a cent per pound Seven years later, in spite of the extra ordinary cheapening of transport in the preceding few years, and the big decline in prices of raw material, which would make the old market an exorbitant one in 1894, the difference east of the Rocky Mountains between the price paid for raw by the refiner and that paid by the retailer to the jobber for standard granu lated was 1% cents per pound in addition to fi eights and charges Competition had gone glimmering. The equality plan was an arrangement between producer and distributor for mutual protection, in which of course the public was not included. Monopoly Fostered Competition. But this long profit in refining sugar had its disadvantages It promoted compe tition for the trust, and this development is of special interest to the student of 1 America's development who is endeavor ing to solve the trust problem Independ ent refineries were built, among the new factors in the trade being Arbuckle, be^ tween whom and Havemeyer has de veloped a hatred which has been a factor In sugar prices during the past few years. This makes competition. Arbuckle in sists on selling sugar without regard to card prices or the equality plan The job- plement, Part II., of this issue. The Filigree Ball " 8?
