International Shipwrights Must Pay Their Annual Assessment. REPUnUC SPECIAL Paducah, Ky., Oct. 7. Consideration of amendments o the Constitution was the principal buslnesi of the fifth day's ses sion of the International Shipwrights, Joiners and Caulkers of America to-day. Several were adopted, but referred back to the Constitution .Committee for a full report. Most of the morning was taken up in debating the assessment of Jl on each member for strike benefits, ordered at the meeting held last jear In Detroit. Mich. A law was passed assessing each mem ber of every local 51 for this particular fund. It seems that several locals have been lax in earning out the law. and tho arguments were to make it more binding and effective The convention decid.-d that It must be more stringent, and in tho future every member of each local will be required to pay the sum. There are about S.000 members of the or der. Xo union, according to a resolution adopted at the present convention, will be entitled to a share in this, fund, unless it is In good standing in eery respect.

Quaker Refuses to Sell Belting to War and Navy Departments. REPUBLIC SPECIAL Washington, Oct. 7. Quakerism is stronger with a certain firm of Philadel phia leather manufacturers than is busi ness. A Washington contractor recently requested this firm to quote him prices on leather beltiDg for use In the United States Navy. He has received a letter from the head of the firm, a well-known Quaker, who says: "Replying to thy Inquiry for price on belt for the Xavy Department, we would fcay that, as members of the Society of Friends, we are advocates of peace, and feel that it Is more consistent with our principles not to attempt to make money by selling It to the War and Navy depart ments. We are naturally glad to do busi ness, and would say that this Is purely a question of principle with us." LADY MANAGERS- RECEIVED.
