ChUrman Knapp assured the repre
sentatles of the general manager that
he and Mr Nelll would take up the
mailer and If necessary would go to
Chitago In an effort to adjust the con
troversy
KNAPP AND NE1LL CONFKR
Chairman Knapp and Dr Nelll had a
conference during the early pan of the
day to determine upon what they would
oo It appears not unlikely that if the
telegraphic communication with resi
dent Csrter Is satisfactory one or both
of the mediators will leave Washington
late today for Chicago
The application for mediation la < < 1m
prvhenslve In scope It Includes not
merely the question of wages w hlc h Is
Ihe crux ot the dispute but also hours
of labor and conditions of employment
In fact It cover every phase of the
difficulty
It la known that representatives or
general managers committee have been
lu Washington several days prepared
and fully authorised to make the appli
cation In the form U was presented to
day as soon as failure of the negotia
tion at Chicago should be Indisted
CALVIN AV1ICIPA1ISS NO

San Francisco March IS Though
frankly conceding that the strike order
Issued from Chicago laat night by the
Brotherhood uf Locomotive Klremen
and Knginetnen may cause temporary
Inconvenience and emhatmesmsnt oM
vial of the railroads operating on the
Iaclrtc coast say they anticipate no
great trouble Apparently the action
of President carter of the brotherhood
has taken sum of the oemiauMe by
surprise and no spwbg measure to
meet the emergency had been formu
lated The tact howem that the en
gineers arc not likely to be Involved I
legardfd bv the companies aa a re
aaaurlng aspect of the situation Man
of the locomotives of the eoaet llae are
equipped with oil baraen which It Is
stat4Ml do not require much skill In
handling
Little wMiMdswa ig manifested at the
Southern PaclOc otlleaa hers and re
port from divisional points of tHe
Harrlnmti line the Heat Northern
Santa Fe and other railroad up and
down the coast are to the tiffect tint
tbe officials exprets small concern over
the outlook K K Calvin vice profi
cient and general manatrer of the
Southern IVtclflc said last night
While the strike will affect oil
roads out here we do not HntlclpHle
any seilous Inconvenience
The public does not understand how
the all Ike waa brought about The rail
road were willing to arbitrate with the
firemen on the wage question and In
fart asked for arbitration The tin
men however have Insisted In bring
ilg In the question of representation
that Is they Insisted upon being em
powered to legislate for their memhr
after they had become engineers Thl
the engineers did not request
The fact that we In the west UN oil
burner will make It a very easy mat
ter to replace the men
About M per cent of the Southern Ia
elSie firwnsn are members of the
Brotherhood It is officially statsd and
all of these are etpected to obey the
orders of their organisation
Santa Fe officials at Los Augcle cay
that Ktakemen on that road doubiloss
will go out with the fireman IM An
Keles Advices state that tbe Salt Lake
road will not be affected as the main
line Is not In operation owing to the
washouts In Nevada
Frank C Avansnn secretary of the
grievance committee of the western
division nf firemen says that he has
not yet been apprised of the strike or
der hut expects to receive offlktal noti
fication today
Whatever the order rail for he
said it Is probable that everv dlvUloii
In the west will stand by them A
referendum vote was taken some time
ago and forwarded to Chtca o in t > me
to be considered prior to take cffirrt
on March n between our grand officer
and the general managers committee

and the Brotherhood of Locomotive
engineers at the other pojnts These i
two union heve been loggerheads
far veral years end IgiriMI mutt
vuktleo became so strained that lbs Are
men fufctly began preparation for the
movement which la expected to cul
minate soon
An employe cannot become an ernrt
nmr until he has nerved a novitiate of
three years as a fireman When he se
cure an engine he muM accenting to
the rule of the Brotherhood of Loco
motive Knajlneers drop his former af
filiation with the firemen and become a
member of the senior order The fire
mens order as It Is usually called not
only Includes the men who handle the
shovel but also those who have gradu
ated and are pulling the throttle
DECLINE Ti QUIT ORDER
Man flremen after they have
ps sod their examination and are lu
command uf an engine decline to
drop their old older They maintain
that they have a right to their or
ganisation snd the tight between the
two orders baa been of a fierce na
ture for several years Tne engineers 1
union which Is the oldr and the
more powerful will not budge an
Inch from the stand that their con
stitution holds them to
The matter of representation which
Is really the fist of the whole af
fair and which Implicates the rail
road to that grievance coitimlttees
from the Locomotive Firemen and
Knglnemen are not given recognition
by the railroad official while the en
gineers are more favored Th officiate
claim that they will recognize but
one order of engineers and that the
firemen members must stale their
grievance through the engineers
body The engineers have an agree
ment with the railroads It Is said
that nobody but those who belong to
their organisation shall represent any
engineers grievances
The matter of wages which also
enters Into the strike la but a side
issue and would readily be adjusted by
arbitration In a nutshell the order
of comotlve Firemen and Engine
men are asking for a recognition of
their organisation as engineers after

NOT AKFBtTKI YET
Up to a late hour this afternoon 1
was serene In the situation In this
city all trains running according to
schedule on nil the roads centering
here and no movement Indicating a
strike of the local firemen had been
made The railroad official so far
are taking an optimistic attitude with
regard to the situation and think that
rewr
the firemen will hardly go so far as
lo declare a genera strike That such
a movement would however be dis
astrous Is admitted by the of
ficials and one to be deplored not
only In the railroad world but among
all classes of business as a strike of
the dimensions feared would simply
ParalYze buslnem at least temporarily
W I Bancroft vicepresident and

received no notification of the enDInc
of a strike of the local firemen
Everything la moving along Just the

Dear Mr Rankln I have your favni
o the Ith mat Informing me that
there will be a meeting of the lllltioii
iKapublican JMItorisl aseeetatlon at
Bpringflaid on March I In Inviting
me to give you a word of neourajt
rai
melt and suggestion
i thank you for the courtesy but
I feel there Is no occasion for me either
to adUae or encourage th Republican
editor of Illinois who have been a
potent factor In the politics of th stats
since before the Republican party wag
formally organized
The Republican party b n dli
carded any of Its principles nor has I
ought new laauee simply for the
uat u m f pur
pose of aatrhlnx th crowd ever ready
for no veil leu Where It has ndded a
new plank lo Its platform I has kept
Ill pledge Republican melon
ties In house amid senate cnoperutlng
with the president placed the Panne
tariff law on the statute book Aug i
or within less than five months from
the beginning of the session
Within cii month after Its enact
ment that law b demiMietrsvted that
It la the bet revenue producer a well
as the mOt scientific adjustment of
protective duties we have ever had
fully JuMlftn the presidents declara
tion that I la tb best tariff law ever
enacted Thr Republican party did not
promise a fiie trade tariff not a down
ward revision but a revision In which
should be recognised the principle of
protection with the minimum and maximum
imum rates to preserve without exces
sive duties that security atovlnnt for
eign competition to which American
manufacturers and producera are en
titled and also to maintain th high
standard o living of the wax earner
of this country who are the most dIrect
bnnenclsrlea of the protectlie system
In carrying out that pledge of the
platform we enacted a tariff In which
there were 6M decrease from the DIn
Icy law 20 increaSe and 11M Items of
the dutiable list unchanged T anti
He on which duties were decreased
represented ISWMXOajO worth a consumption
umptlon while those Increased had a
consumption value of less than SlId
ttttoe The Increases were o luxuries
and the decreases on necessities and In
a
the flmt sK months of the law more
than M per cent of all Importations
ware free n duty the largest percent
