Both Sides Seem Confident of Final Victory?Deny the Statement of Mr. Howard. Tlie first twenty-four hours of the print- ' ers' strike finds both of the warring fac- I tions in the same positions they occupied | at fhe beginning. The union fee!s encour aged by reason of the fact that two Inde- J pendent shops signed the agreement today, j and that one firm, a member of the Typoth- | etae, signed the agreement yesterday be cause, It was stated, It could not afford to do without the services of the union men. Aside from this the condition of affairs is practically as it was yesterday and the talkative representatives of both sides are claiming victory. A meeting of the striking members of Co lumbia Typographical I.'nion, No. 101, was held this morning at the strike committee's headquarters, SXK! D street northwest. The roll of the strikers was called and a short address was made to them. The members of the committee Impressed on the members of the union that they must deport them selves in a gentlemanly manner if they ex pect to maintain the dignity of the situa tion. Tomorrow afternoon at 3 o'clock President Gompers of the American Fed eration of Labor will address the strikers at the committee headquarters. Howard Statement Denied. The printers who were e.mployed in the shop of George E. Howard feel rather keen ly the statement made by Mr. Howard pub lished In The Star yesterday, in which the printers are represented as having struck simply because the union had so ordered. "In justice to Mr. Howard and to the printers that were employed by him it should be said that the statement of yester day is Incorrect," said Mr. T. C. Parrons of the strike committee this morning. "We do not believe that Mr. Howard was correctly Quoted, because he knew better than any one else could the sentiments of his men. They have always been among the most en thusiastic of our supporters: have worked for the eight-hour day from the first, and are now among the most useful and steady j men we have. They voluntarily told me , this morning that they were sorry the state ment was published in The Star yesterday, and declared that their loyalty to the union must not be questioned. It is particularly unfortunate that a man of Mr. Howard's standing among the printers should have made such a statement, btcause in his case, instead of simply walking out and refusing to work, the men individually presented him their resignations, in which they expressed their regret at the conditions that mads further employment in his shop impossible, and expressed also the hope that these con ditions would soon be altered. The men all liked Mr. Howard and Mr. Howard liked the men. Their relations had been very close." The Union's Claims. Mr. Parsons stated that from the infor- I matlon they could obtain the conditions in the shops of the members of the Typothetae were not very good. Women and boys have been put to work in the place of the strik ers, he said, but their work, of course, is not satisfactory While the union officials do not say the work in the shops was tied up, they gave that impression. The strikers are much pleased with the action of Mr. Haywortli of the Hayworth company, who told his men to come back to work today and quit at 4:30, meaning that they would be required to work but eight hours. The men returned this morning and are at work. They state that it is not necessary for the employers to sign a new agreement. The old agreement will do. with an eight-hour stipulation, of course. Among the Employers. From the Typothetae's point of view all is as ?well as it possibly could be. The em ployers are satisfied that they have the sit uation well in hand. No shop in the organ ization has yielded as yet, except the Davis establishment, which signed the printers' agreement yesterday. Things stand at about an even break between the organiza tions, the Typothetae members claim. Gibson Bros, state that they have at work today all the men they really need, and have added one new man to their force since yesterday. They are keeping their j work up without trouble. The Globe Print- ! ijig Company has three typesetting machines at work and four men on hand composition. New men are being added to their force. Judd & Detweiler have twenty men at work and have six typesetting machines going. Since yesterday they have added several new men and bois to their force and are able to take care of their work. McGill & Wallace have added two men to their force since yesterday and now have five at work and expect four additional men to report for duty In the morning. They axe able to keep their work going, and, as a member of the firm stated to a Star reporter, are feeling fine. W. F. Roberts Company has four men at work and expects additional pen this afternoon. Work Is going on as usual In the office. OFFICERS INSTALLED. Post and Corps, Q. A. R., Unite in the Ceremonies. Charles Sumner Post, No. 9, G. A. R., and Charles Sumner W. R.

Six months in the District jail and fifteen days in the workhouse is the penalty which Robert Bankett, colored, will pay, in de fault of fines of $55, imposed by Judge Kimball this morning, for resisting and as saulting Policeman Peterson of the seventh precinct. The officer was on duty in Georgetown yesterday afternoon, when he saw a team passing along the street, with dirt drop ping from the wagon. The officer stepped up to the driver and warned him against dropping the dirt. Just then Bankett came up and asked the officer what right he had to stop the driver. Bankett continued his remarks, and was finally arrested by the officer. As Policeman Peterson took hold of Bankett, the latter struck the officer on the hand with a heavy instrument, inflict ing a painful wound. The officer came to court with his hand covered with band ages, put on in the hospital, to which he was forced to go. "What do you want to say?" was asked the defendant. "Before God, I am as innocent as you are, sitting here," began the defendant. "Don't make a speech. Did you hit this officer?" interrupted his honer. "I didn't hit him with a thing," re plied Bankett. "Stop using profanity, here," ordered the man on the bench. Although Bankett denied his guilt, he was found to be guilty by Judge Kimball and was fined, as stated. COSTLY MISTAKE. Isaiah Johnson Says He Took Garment by Mistake.

When Jackson went to the house in ques tion he found Johnson there, but he left wiiile Jackson was there. He was arrested, but denied any knowiedged of the coat. It was finally located, it having been sold. "I took it by mistake when I left the house, and as I was under the influence of liquor, I did not know where it belonged, when I discovered the mistake," explained the defendant. Judge Kimball recognized an old excuse that he has been hearing nearly every day for years, and he found Johnson guilty. Hyattsville and Vicinity. 6pecial Correspondence of The Star.

The burning of a chestnut tree at Cedar Hill, the estate of the late Frederick Doug lass, Jefferson and Pierce streets, Anacos tia, was responsible for the summoning of the Anacostia flre department, with the re serves from the police station, yesterday afternoon about 4:15 o'clock. The fire was ascertained to be the work of small boys, and it was stated last evening at the police station that they are to be required to an swer for the Invasion of the Douglass place In court. The tree was forty feet high, it i3 said, and was denuded of nearly all its limbs At the base of the trunk was a large hol low, which evidently appealed to some youngsters as the probable retreat of squir rels or 'possums, for a fire was started therein which was the cause finally of the assembly of the blue coats and flre fight ers. As It happened a hole some thirty feet tip the trunk formed a sort of chimney and In a. short time the tree was in a blaze. The firemen plied axes and used water and at last the tree was laid low. Mr. Wm. B, Downey a student at St. Charles College near Baltimore, returned to the institution today following the holiday recess, which he spent with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Bryan Downey, on Jackson street.

She was repre sented by Attorney T. L. Jones. At the conclusion of the evidence and after she had pleaded guilty Judge Kimball imposed a penalty of ?23 fine or ninety days in jail. Mr. Govern explained on the stand that the defendant, a servant !n the house, was suspected of larceny before, and was dis charged for that reason. When he looked over his possessions he found that the scarfpin, valued at *10, was missing. Pre clnet Detective Forteney of tlie second Pre cinct was assigned to the case, and he ar rested the defendant. BUe told several sto ries about the whereabouts of tho p:n, but it was not recovered.

While the little tupr Baby, belonging to the Columbia National Sand IirtSgi'in Company of this city, was lying: at the tnh street wharf of the American Ire Company about -1 o'clock yesterday afternoon Fmoka was noticed coming out of a forw.L-d hatch and a smell of burning: wooil was preva lent. When the hatch was opened a blind ing- cloud of smoke poured out.*and It was found that the forward end of one of the coal bunkers of the tujj wis on lire. A lino of horse was quickly run out from the tug James O. Carter, wJr-jh was lying near by. and a stream of wa'er from '.he pumps of the Carter was play-d on the burning coal. In a few minutes the lire wax put jut, and the damage don? was found to be very small. The Are is supposed to have been started by hot coals from the nsn pan under the furnace getting into the bunker. Unusually High Tides. The tides yesterday evening In the rA-er were unusually high, caused. It is thought, by the easterly winds on ti e coast hacking the water up in the bay. According to all local indications 'the tides should have been low, as the winds hereabout were from the west, a low-tide quarter, but, all h g \s to the, contrary, the water was well up over the sea wall of the Potomac Pa'k, and all the low-lying lands on the Virginia side o" the river about Jackson City were ur.d-r water. At some of the lower wharves along the river front the water had almost reached the level of the wharf platform, wh n it began to fall, and removed all danger ot flooding the wharves. Today the tides have been rather high, but they did not reach the level of yesterday. AFTER DIGESTION ? WHAT?
