The lathers have made it plain to the Employing Lathers' Ass'n that there is only one basis upon which peace can rest and that is an. indi vidual agreement with each con tractor. As long as the employers' association insists upon the joint ar bitration agreement the union men will carry out their intention of striking on April-15. The plasterers, whose work fol lows that of the lathers, refused again to lay plaster over boards put up by men who grabbed the jobs of their striking brothers. The con tractors are claiming that they are violating their working agreement. The plasterers say they are not sup posed to work with nonunion labor. The contractors have again failed to "put one over." o o CLAIM LINCOLN AND RUNNELS TOO ILL TO TESTIFY The two big men who head the Pullman sleeping car company are sick, so sick they can't think or talk, so sick they can't come to Chicago and answer questions before the U. S. Industrial relations commission. That jte what they say, and their doctors send certificates saying it The two men are Robert T. Lincoln, chairman board of directors Pullman Co., and John S. Runnels, president Chairman Frank P. Walsh of tho commission says it will be decided today or tomorrow whether the two multi-millionaires shall be compelled to come to Chicago. It is known that Lincoln plays golf every day, has at tended meetings of the Pullman board of directors the past few years, draws a salary of $100,000 a year and has his brain and tongue in fairly good shape, so that he can testify if he wants to. It may be inconvenient, but it is not impossible for him to come to Chicago and explain why the son of President Abraham-Lincoln is at the head of a corporation that re fuses to let the workmen organize. While the commission is quietly go ing ahead with a real hearing, dig ging into bottom facts, the Herald, Tribune and News are all delivering attacks on Walsh for his lack of "ju dicial poise." The hearings at Hotel Sherman are not enough of a polite, pleased-to-meet-you, parlor affair to suit these newspapers. o o HAD SUICIDE ALL PLANNED- MAY DIE JILTED Miss Blanche Frahm grew despon dent last night. She called to her apartment at 449 Belmont av. a young gentleman, said to be F. W. Storey pf the Merchants' Collecting & Adjusting Co., and explained things to him. Then she called a doctor. "Take the record on the table and put it on the victrola," she instructed Dr. L. Rose, 309 E. 47th str when he arrived. "Then get me a glass of wa ter." A plaintive Hawaiian love song started and Dr. Rose went after the water. He dropped the glass when he heard a shot from the parlor, and rushing in found Miss Frahm on the floor with a bullet in her breast. At the hospital where physicians despaired of saving her life, Miss Frahm said she had been jUted by Arnzo Delroses, a musician, 946 Sher idan road.
