The Carpet Manufacturers Throw Open the
Doors of Their Factories Yesterday Hut
None of the Men Keturned to Work Men
Will Kcmniu Oat Until Demands Aie Ac
ceded To.
Philadelphia, Aug. 12. In accord
ance with their ultimalum the thirty
seven Ingrain carpet manufacturers,
whose 3,000 employes are on strike for
an advance In wages of 7 per cent.,
opened the doors of their mills this
morning so as to give the strikers au
opportunity to return to work.
The manufacturers agreed to grant
the advance on December 1, If the men
would return to-day, otherwise they de
clared that they would call off all ne
gotiations and endeavor, to fill the
places of the strikers with new hands.
So far as could be learned none of
the strikers returned to-day, and an
early settlement of the strike which has
now been in progress five weeks, is
not probable.
A majoritx of the strikers held shop
meetings to-day, and reiterated their
intention to remain out until the manu
facturers shall accede to their de
mands. It is said a building, some distance
from Philadelphia, has been selected
and will be used for a co-operative fac
tory. Rear End Collision.

Camp Coffin, Niantic, Conn., Aug. 12
The state militiamen are now all set
tled In their respective quarters on
the camp ground, and this afternoon
their week's routine work was com
menced with the establishing of guard
mounting. This afternoon the fig was
run up the pole in front of Brigadier
General Haven's tet at his quarters,
ad Camp Coffin was officially declared
open. This afternoon the consolidated
reports received at brigade headquar
ters show that there are fully as many
men in camp this year ae there were a
year ago, there being about 2,761 men on
the camp ground. The following are
the figures of the four regiments, the
number of men in attendance and those
absent. First regiment, 646 present, 50
abset; Second regiment, 672 present, 57
absent; Third regiment, 4S3 present, 17
absent; Fourth regiment, 529 present, 22
absent; separate companies, 188 pres
ent, 17 absent; machine gun, 40 present,
none absent.
The weather cleared up this afternoon
and the temperature was at the point
that made it exceedingly uncomfortable
for the men In camp. , Especially at
drill the men suffered from the heat.
There were few cases of sickness In the
hospital. A member of company C, of
the First regiment, was received at the
hospital this afternoon. While coming
to camp on the train this morning a
bottle of soda water exploded in his
hand and lacerated the member badly.
The signal corps this afternoon start
ed out to Mount Giddlngs, two miles
from the camp, and practiced for two
hours with the flags. The militiamen
have not found any fault this year
with the quality of their food which has
been served. A new plan of inspecting
the food, which was adopted by Gen
eral Peck, was put Into effect to-day and
worked successfully. The plan is to
station a quartermasters' sergeant of
each company at the mess house and in
the kitchens and watch the food as It is
served. If the quality is considered
good or bad a note Is made of it and
a report made to the commissary de
partment. There has, however, been
no occasion for making a report against
the food served to-day and the men
were well pleased.

The opening of camp to-day was de
cldedly unpleasant, and the fact that
It was not at all unusual did not make
the boys feel any better. The tents
were completely soaked and the ground
was full of puddles and sloppy as could
The storm which passed over the ren
dezvous last night was one of the most
severe that has been experienced in
years. Rain fell In torrents and the
almost continuous play of lightning
followed by the terrible peals of thun
der which followed eaoh other In rapid
succession made the night anything
but a delightful one to experience. It
Is a notlcable fact that during nearly
each encampment since the establish
ment of the rendezvous a severe storm
has been experienced.
The first to arrive was the Guilford
Battery, which reached the camp
ground at 9:15, and closely following
came the First Regiment of Hartford

Third from New London, and finally
the Fourth Regiment, the separate
companies following aftfer. By noon
all were In quarters, -the rain storms

to march into camp, were standing be

Connecticut river when the militia
trains passed this morning. They
cheered as the trains passed and seem
ed to be in good spirits. They ar
rived in camp at 12:30 o'clock this after
noon. They bivouacked at Saybrook
Junction last night and left there at 8
o'clock this morning. Not a man
was sick nor did a man drop out of the
march. They arrived covered with
mud and glory and received an enthu
siastic greeting. Upon their arrival
they reported in a body to Colonel Bur

The total number of men in camp
this noon was 2,805.
In past years the seacoast battery

left Hartford at 8 o'clock this morning
and stopped on the road an hour for
dinner by the roadside and a half hour
for repairs. While coasting down a hill
about six iniles from Niantic the springs
of the wire saddle broke and Lieutenant
Jenkins, bicycle and all, went tumbling
over each other Into the ditch. He was
not Injured, got up, Improvised a sad
die and rode Into camp on the saddle

of Bolton. The distance Is about forty-
six miles.
The new campaign hats of the brigade
give militiamen an unnatural appear
ance. The wisdom of adopting the
mouse-colored slouch hat was fully de
monstrated to-day, as It Is a first-class
rain protector. The appearance of a
regiment of marching militiamen attir
ed in the new hat reminded one of the
old war pictures. The men have not as
yet adapted themselves to wearing the
new hat In a uniform manner. . Some
have creased tous, while the others are
dented. The men still retain their caps,
which will be worn at times.
The going of the National Guard to
camp this morning was not by any
means pleasant. The rain, however,
could not be prevented and was conse
quently endured. Before 6 o'clock there
were soldier boys at work in the armory
preparing the many little odds and ends
always necessary for camp. At 7 o'clock
every one was present and in readiness,
and Lieutenant Colonel Callahan as

A Ride to Woodmont and Westvllle Those
Who Enjoyed It.
A very jolly trolley party left the
corner of Church and Chapel streets
last evening about 7:45 on one of the
Winchester railroad company's cars
which was prettily trimmed with flags
and bunting. The first run , was
through to Woodmont, where the par
ty partook of refreshments at William
Merwin's restaurant. After a stay of
an hour a run was made to Westville,
returning to Church and Chapel streets,
where several left, the others going to
their respective homes on the line of
the road. The jolly party consslsted of
the following young people: The Miss

The meeting of the board of council-
men last evening brought out only a
small attendance. President Charles
A. NIooll is In Niantic and Councilman
Chllllngworth was nominated for chair
man. . Mr. Chilllngworth declined to
serve because, he said, there were mat
ters to come up in which he had inter
est. Councilman Pickett declined to
occupy the chair for the same reason,
and Councilman Gompertz nominated
Councilman Ullman, who took the
When the matter came up providing
for the purchase of a site for a police
station in the Third precinct, there was
opposition from Messrs. Curtis, Beau
lah and Gompertz, who wanted the
orders tabled for printing, and Council
man Dewell of the board of finance ex
plained that It was not proposed to ex
pend $10,000 immediately. All the board
of finance wanted to do was to buy
a site for a new police station. Only
$3,000 was wanted and this was to be
taken from the unexpended balances.
The city was now paying an extrava
gant rent for station 3, the lease expir
ed next spring and It was desirous to
get a site and prepare plans for a
The question being put to a vote, 11
voted for tabling for printing and
11 against. The chair voted in the
affirmative, and the matter now goes
to the board of aldermen, who passed
the necessary orders at its last meeting.
Petitions were referred to the com
mittee on streets for vitrified brick
pavement in Whalley avenue from
Howe street to the West river bridge,
on Elm street from State to Park, and
In Broadway from' York to Howe.
Communications from L. J. Matthews
on yarlaus subjects were indefinitely
postponed in concurrence.
A communication of Mayor Hendrick
on street paving, calling attention to
the importance of first having connec
tions made with alf sewers, gas and
water mains, which was ordered on file
by the aldermen, was on motion of Mr.
Chilllngworth referred to the commit
tee on streets, and the communication
was ordered printed in the journal.
Councilman Grinnell introduced an
ordinance providing tnat the city clerk
shall notify the city attorney and su
perintendent of police of the passage of
all ordinances. It was referred to the
committee on ordinance.
The chair ruled out of order a motion
of Councilman McGinty to reconsider
the action of the board referring the
petition for vitrified brick pavement in
Grand avenue where the tracks of the
Fair Haven & Westvllle railroad com
pany run to the company's car sheds
to the committee on streets and to re
fer it to the board of public works in
concurrence with, the board of alder
men. This he did after considerable
debate on the question, and Council
man Scobie appealed from the decision
of the chair and the chair was not
sustained. Then a vote was taken on
reconsideration and it was lost ayes 8,
nays 13, so as the matter stands there
is disagreeing action, the upper board
referring it to the board of public works
and the lower board to the committee
on streets.
There was considerable debate on the
report of the committee on streets on
sidewalks that need to be reiaid. Coun
cilman Pickett opposing the adoption
of the report in concurrence with the
board of aldermen, he said, because he
though the city should first have the
opinion of the corporation counsel as to
whether the city could collect for a new
Councilman Chilllngworth favored the
report, but Judge Pickett's motion to
table the report for the opinion of the
corporation counsel was passed 13 to 9,
Then street sprinkling was taken up,
Councilman Pickett calling up the re-
port of the special committee on that
subject. The board of aldermen adopt
ed the report, except the first order,
appropriating $5,000 out of the unex
pended balances, which was amended
so as to provide for the transfer of
money from the unexpended balance to
the board of public works, no sum,
however, being named. It developed,
though, during the debate, that the
amount would probably not exceed $1,-
000. .
Councilman- Pickett asked that the
report be taken up by division and mov
ed the adoption of the order as amend
ed by the board of aldermen in concur
rence, and this action was taken.
Then Judge Pickett criticised the
committee's report, which, he said,
reflected on the board of public works.
and he read paragraphs in the re
port including that which stated that
"the effect of the delays on the part of
the board of public works in sprinkling
during the windy weather of March
and the dry portion of April, and to
force abutting property owners to con
tract with and to pay Messrs. Munson
and Blakeslee for sprinkling the street
in front of their property."
He said the other orders of the re
port would run the city into debt and
bind the city to do what it had not got
money to do. He moved that the re-
mainedr of the report be referred to
the committee on ordinances with in
etruotions to draft an ordinance in con
formity with the act passed by the
general assembly regarding street
sprinkling in New Haven.
Councilman Grinnell favored the
adoption of the report, and so did
Courcilman Chillingworth. Mr. Grin
nell said no ordinance was needed; th
legislative act was sufficient. He moved
that the beard concur with the elder-men.
This motion was lost, 10 to 11, and tha
motion to refer the remainder of the
report to the committee on ordinances
was adopted.
The board wound up the session by
rejecting the order, one adopted by
the board of1 aldermen, regarding the
obstruction of sidewalks and danger
lights when buildings were in process
of erection.
