NEW SCHEDULE FOR TROLLEYMEN General Increase for Over time Work Given to All Grades Of Men. BUT SIX YEARS TO GET MAXIMUM WAGE Limit of Overtime Set At Thirty Cents While Reg ular Pay Remains the Same. To discuss the new wage schedule proposed by General Manager Punder l'ord of the Connecticut company in re sponse to the demand of the Trolley men's union for an increase in the scale of wages of the street railway employes of the company the executive commit tee of the union held a secret session yesterday noon. No tidings were given out after the session as to the attitude of the committee towards -.he schedule that had been submitted to them for their approval. It was stated authoritatively last night, however, 'that the proposed sche dule which was considered and which it is stated will be reported favorably to the union at its meeting is one which makes a gesoral Increase in the rate of overtime pay for all the classes of men employed while maintaining the pres ent maximum of twenty-five cents an hour as the highest wage for regular service. There Is an important change in re lation to this which will effect a large number of the employes of the company however, in that the length of time re quired in which to reach this maximum of 25 cents is reduced from nine to six years. This will result' practically in an Increase of a cent a'n hour for all tho men in the service who have been with the company between Six and nine years. '' Miff I For overtime the old men, which un- tier the new schedule means employes of over six Instead of nine years, will get 30 Instead of 25 cents. Men who have been in the service between four and six years will get an overtime pay of 29 cents as against 25 which was the uniform overtime for all men un der the present schedule. These men will contlune to receive the scale of 24 cents per hour for regular work. Three year men will get 22 1-2 cents for regular as at present and their overtime is fixed at 27 12 cents. Two year men who are getting regular pay of 22 cents will get 27 for overtime. The beginners, or one year men, who are paid 21 dents will get the overtime rate of 25 cents. The trolleymen's petition was for a maximum of 27 1-2 cents for regular work for men In the service over nine years and overtime at 35 cents an hour. The new schedule will be printed in the local barns to-dav. HARUGART ELECTS John Weisberger of This City Chosen Treasurer of State Society. OFFICE FOR P.

MYSTERY INJMENTIi OF RAILROAD MEN All Sessions are Behind Closed Doors, but Ru mors are Numerous. Cambridge Springs, Pa., Aug. 8. Much mystery surrounds the meeting of the railway representatives at the Hotel Rider in this place. Sessions be hind closed doors have been in pro gress for nearly a week but so quiet have been the meetings and so suc cessfully have the members kept their presence a secret that even newspaper men of this place were not cognizant of their presence. An earnest endeavor has been made to keep the matter under cover,' and hotel attaches have been warned not to offer the slightest information. So far as con be learned here officers representing the Pennsylvania, the New York, New Haven and Hartford, i the Central of New Jersey, Lake Erie and Western, Baltimore and Ohio, and Chesapeake and Ohio are present.

Hearn, of New Ha ven, Conn, responded to the speeches i of Mgr. Falconio, who Slso delivered an address. ' ' , Cardinal Gibbons was detained in Baltimore by indisposition and could not take his place on the program. Boston and Chicago are contesting for the next place of meeting.

Falconio, the ceremo ny being witnessed by a large assem blage of distinguished guests. one of the babies was the ten-days-old daughter of Datto Ooon, a Bagato chief, and the two others belong to the Tagalo tribe of the Philippine reserva tion at the exposition.
