UKELY _TO_STRIKE
Moving Picture Operators Negotiate
for Better Pay.
CONFER WITH MANAGERS
Demand Wage Advance and EightHour
Day, With Privilege of Employing
Substitutes.
Whether motion picture operators will
receive an increase of wages on a basis
of established work hours or whether
they will walk out STunday, abandoning
their jobs because of the refusal of their
demands, is to be determined at a series
of conferences this week between committees
representing the operators and the
motion picture theater managers.
The operators' scale was submitted
some time ago to the managers, who also
are organized under the title of Exhibitors'
Association. October 13 was the
time set for signing up. The operators
agreed that if any house had failed to
sign up by November 1 the employes of
tnat nouse would quit their jobs ivovember
3.
The demand Is for 'an eight-hour day,
seven days in the week, with privilege
to employ a substitute one day in the
week. Saturday and Sunday excepted,
the day to be determined by the employer,
and the substitute to be paid by
the operator on the same wage basis.
A wage of SIS weekly for all operators,
except chief operators, the latter to receive
S'J2 weekly, was asked. For overtime
25 cents an hour was also demanded.
Affiliate With Labor Body.
B. A. Spellbring is president of the
operators' union, which is affiliated with
the Central I^abor Union. A committee
of five men from Central I.abor Union, including
Mr. Spellbring. is representing
the operators in the discussion with the
theater managers. The conference yesterday
afternoon was for the purpose
of allowing Mr. Spellbring to explain.
He told the managers, among other
things, that the operators are not demanding
a snx-dav week, but themselves
propose to pay substitutes when they
work but six of the seven days, and
that the main purpose of this substituting
is to give men out of steady work an
opportunity to earn a few dollars.
The conditions in the booths, the op^-ators
say, justifies them in asking for a
competent wage for obnoxious work. The
little elevated rooms in which they work,
according to their camplaint, are sweatboxes.
Temperatures of 90 and 93 degrees
Fahrenheit are common. In one booth,
where the thermometer marked about 140
degrees, the operator was working in his
underclothing when it came under the
eyes of the police. The police would not
permit the operator to proceed in this undress,
and he was compelled to don his
clothing, despite the intensity of the heat.
The labor is also hazardous, the operators
declare. Hardly a week goes by
without some film taking fire.
Long Time for Chief Operators.
The chief operator of one theater is at
work eleven and a half hours out of
twelve and a half hours, the extra hour
being divided to allow him to eat at intervals.
His wage is $20 a week for this
term of daily service, seven days a week,
according to his statement.
Operators are paid from $15 to $20 a
week for service of similar long hours
One man works as an operator for eight
hours and then for fourteen hours as
usher each day. receiving $18 weekly.
Another complaint is regarding the exaction
put upon operators of carrying
motion picture reels from the theater
to the shipping offices after their day s
work is done. This is extra duty put
upon them, they say, for which they
want overtime pay, unless it he accomplished
within the limits of their eighthour
day.
CHURCH HAY LOSE BEQUEST.
Code Provisions May Nullify Wish
in George A. Hundley's Will.
Premises 1450 Oak street northwest is
devised to the Mount Vernon Place M.
E. Church by the will of George A.
Hundley, dated October ifl!. 19U!, and
filed for probate. The remaining estate
is left to the six children of his deceased ,
son, James T. Hundley. As Mr. Hundley |
died the day after the will was executed
the devise to the church may fail because
of the provision of the code against bequests
for religious purposes in a will
made within thirty days of death.
After leaving (5 each to his brothers
and sisters, John Danhakl. by his will
dated May 4, devises his entire estate
to his widow. Margaretha Danhakl.
She is also named as executrix.
PLEASED WITH RESULTS.
Chairman Waldron Tells of the
Work of Colored Democrats.
The National Independent Political
League, composed mostly of colored men,
is taking an active part in the campaign
for the election of Wilson and Marshall,
the democratic candidates for President
and Vice President, according to a statement
given out today by J. Milton Wald- ;
ron, national organizer and chairman of
the campaign committee He. said:
"Not only does the general fight appear
to be won, but we feel that we of the !
independent League have gained our I
point. We have completely shattered the i
chains which have bound the colored j
race to the tail of the republican cart. I
Word comes from our organizers and I
speakers in the doubtful states, where
our work is being mainly carried on, that
it is difficult to find halls large enough
to contain the crowds at our meetings.
The results we have attained are far beyond
our most sanguine expectations."
COMPLAINS POLICE ARE SLOV
Maj. Sylvester Wants Reports of
Cases Turned in Quicker.
Complaint of delay on the part of cer
lam ?m uui> in int; pulice
stations in transmitting reports to
headquarters has resulted in the issuance
of a general order by Muj. Sylvester,
superintendent, requiring captains of
police hereafter to give more attention
to the matter of promptness in advising
headquarters of accidents and cases of
unusual importance.
Failure to make prompt reports of occurrences
to headquarters hereafter will
be regarded as sufficient cause for change
in the conduct of the business offices at
the stations, Maj Sylvester says.

FOOD PLANTS READY
Agricultural Department to
Distribute Dasheen Seed.
VEGETABLE LIKE POTATO
Growers in South Will Be Asked to
Experiment and Popularize
New Tuber.
Southern congressmen who want to
keep solid with their constituents have a
chance to do so now, through the Department
of Agriculture, which Is ready to
send out a consignment of dasheens to
about fifty well located growers in a further
movement to popularize the new
vegetable as a southern root crop. This
is the first season when there has been a
general distribution of dasheens made.
The dasheen is the southern substitute
for the Irish potato. It is a tropical and
semi-tropical vegetable rather like a potato
in need of a shave, because the skin
is hairy and fibrous instead of being a
smooth jacket. It is a relative of the ornamental
"elephant's ear" grown In this
latitude, but the root, unlike that of the
elephant's ear, is edible.
Grows Under Humid Conditions.
The tuber is considered quite a find for
the southern states because it will grow
in the inolst, hot regions under humid
conditions that would kill a potato. It
has been tried at the banquets of the National
Geographic Society here and pronounced
decidedly good, and has been
tried with approval by the house committee
of the Cosmos Club. It can be
boiled or baked, or. in fact, cooked in any
other way a potato can be used. The
taste is rather more meaty than a potato.
Some who have tasted it say there is
a suggestion of roasted chestnut about it.
and others that it tastes as though a
very slight addition of gravy had been
made to a potato.
Experiments with the culture of the
dasheen have been made since liX>4. Then
varieties were collected from many Central
and South American points. The
plant was trita in me experiment stations
of Hawaii and Porto Rieo. It was
found that the leaves of the plant if first
boiled with a little soda in the water to
remove the acrid taste made fine greens.
But the unquestioned success of the new
vegetable was not proven till it had been
grown at the Brooksville experiment station
in Florida and in the experimental
garden at Chieo, Cal. It was found that
the best variety came from Trinidad,
though this has been improved by American
breeding. Tests have shown that a
crop of 40m to 4.V? bushels per acre can
be depended on
Dasheen Club at Brooksville.
Brooksville, the town where the vegetable
made such an unquestioned success, has
organized a "Dasheen Club." They recently
gave a banquet with many distinguished
guests and a menu consisting
solely of dasheens cooked in a dozen different
way a The vegetable is already
known in practically all parts of Florida,
and now the culture is to be extended
through such parts of the gulf coast as
are adapted to the crop.
The department has now about 1,000
bushels of the seed tubers ready for distribution,
but this will be made only on
j the indorsement of the representatives
; from the district where the culture is possible.
It is the crucial stage in populariz;
ing tne culture of the new vegetable, and
it is expected it will be a success.
A circular for distribution to the selected
list of representatives has been
prepared giving the history of the plant
and directions for cultivating and cooking
it. One of the experiments that has
been tried with success is making flour
of the dasheen. This has been used In
bread and biscuits that have a trace of
the characteristic taste and are decidedly
good.

SAN FRANCISCO, October 30.?The :
| Pacific Mail liner Manchuria, which ar- (

the first details of a typhoon off the
China coast late in September, which is
believed to have cost hundreds of lives
and to have destroyed millions of dollars'
worth of property. 4
The names of 700 persons, it was said,
were posted as missing at Keelung, Formosa,
where the Manchuria found the
harbor fringed with wreckage. Hundreds 1
of houses had been leveled by the gale, j
which blew at the rate of ninety-seven j
miles an hour, and scores of vessels were

Two Japanese torpedo boats anchored
In the harbor were swept to the rocky
shore and all the members of the crews
except two were drowned.
The loss of merchandise includes the
cargo of the British steamer Dacre
Castle. The 16,t?00-ton vessel was Impaled
so firmly on the pinnacle of a rock
that it withstood the assault of the gale
and none of the officers or crew was
drowned. When the typhoon had passed
it was found that the ship had split in
two. Half yf the ship's cargo was saved.
