he party. The former governor says
lie is not keeping very closely In touch
kith political affairs.
Mr. Odell was silent when he was
sked what he .thought of Secretary W,

Mr. Hughes had made a powerful 1m
ressIon on the people of the Empire
tate. "His administration is very
highly thought of, and," said Mr.
pdell, in my opinion, the present gover
nor is a presidential possibility. The
x-govenor said that the last New

a"1Stf5h7awa: that most-of tire tegisla
ion was In the Interest of the people.
Mr. Odell refused to express any opin
ion on President Roosevelt's rate leg

he railroads were suffering, and that
tmsiness was a little restricted. The
'ormer governor was very glad to talk
ibout democratic politics. He would
nake no prediction as to whom the
iemocrats would nominate, but he was
ure that William Randolph Hearst
ouldn't have a look-in. He says that
Iearst got all that was coming to him
n the gubernatorial campaign in New
ffork state last fall.

TELE RAPHERS' STRIKE.
CHICAGO MEN GO OUT
Situation Considered Serious
and Likely to Spread
Rapidly.
Chicago, Aug. 8. The telegraph op
erators employed bjr the Western
Union Telegraph company in Chicago
went on strike to-night at 12 o'clock.
The trouble was precipitated by the
Los Angeles strike, inaugurated two
days ago.
To-night the local executive board
of the Commercial Telegraphers'
Union of America met and passed res
olutions requesting the men to refuse
to work with the non-union operators
in Los Angeles. All operators employ
ed in the Overland division of the
local office followed this request, and
Assistant Night Chief Harry Price or
dered nil who refused to work to leave
the office. He then 1 went Into other
divisions .and requested the men to go
into the Overland division. In every
case he was met with r. refusal until
over seventy men had been sent home.
The grievance committee of the union
notified Mr. Price that unless every
man was reinstated by midnight every
union man In the office would be
colled out. This demand was refused,
and promptly at midnight a whistle
was blown and every operator employ

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.

Comes to an Agreement
With Governor
Ccmer.
CONCESSIONS MADE
BY BOTH SIDES
Laws Will be Put Into Ef
fect Temporally Sub
ject to Judicial De
- termination.
Montgomery, Ala., Atig. 8. Gov.
Comer and the officials' of the Southern
railway reached an agreement late to
day and the license of the railroad In
l'abama will be restored.
Beginning September 1, the railroad
and Its allied lines will put into effect
the two and a half cent passenger rate
and the measure of reducing freight
rates on 110 commodities. The agree
ment was not reached until concessions
were made by both sides, but In the
main It Is a victory for the state.
The laws In question will not be put
into effect permanently. The agree
ment declares that their operation Is
subject to Judicial determination as
to their constitutionality and rea.
sonnbleness. Meanwhile, ithe other
laws enacted by the legislature 'last
winter affecting railroads will remain
In effect under the Injunction granted
by judge Thomas G. Jones, of the fed
eial court.
The railroads agreed that they would
ask Judge Jones to modify tho res
training order Issued two months ago
3 as to permit the immediate opera
tion of the two acts In question. The
compromise affects only the Southern
rlalwoy. The other systems in the
state were not parties to the confer
ence.

To the New Haven Journal and Courier:
Gentlemen The setting sun never beautified a more pleasing
picture than that of the groups of happy children who, with their
bright tin horns and waving flags, alighted from eighteen automobiles
in front of St. Francis' asylum at 6:30 Wednesday evening.
From the time this pleasure, trip was mentioned out little ones
lived in delighted expectation. And now the bright, joyous chatter
of children's voices telling of pleasures enjoyed and kindnesses re
ceived prove that the thoughtful friends who planned and contributed
toward the outing did not fail to make August seventh a day long to
be remembered by the little people as one of thorough happiness.
To the Courier, to those who gave he use of their machines, to
the generous contributors and to all who in any way helped to make
such' a pleasure possible for the children we offer sincere gratitude.

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.
Committees from the railway con-
ductors, telegraphers, yardmen, engin-
pprs nnrl firemen hnvft been trpn.tinir
"h the members. To-day the brake-
men were In session,
Late to-night a report gained circu
lation that there had been an un
friendly feeling in the committee room
but no one would either confirm or
deny the rumor, in fact, those who
were approached expressed surprise
when asked if a meeting had been
held.

Win Re-election at Nor
folk National Con
vention. CONTESTS HOT FOR
BOTH POSITIONS
Big Day at Exposition
Grounds Cardinal Gib
bons Unable to be
Present.
Norfolk, Va., Aug. 8. The following
officers were elected to-night by the
Knights of Columbus,' In national con
vention, to serve for the coming two
years: , . , v
E. L. Hearn, supreme knight; David
Colwell, national secretary; James
Flaherty, deputy supreme knight; B.
W. Buckley, national physician; Jo
seph Pettus, national advocate. Six
directors were elected.
Monsignor Falconla, papal delegate
to the United States, and Governor
Swanson, of Virginia, were the centers
of attraction at the Knights of Colum
bus celebration at the Jamestown ex
position to-day. Ideal weather
brought an attendance of thousands.
Among the clergy present was Arch
bishop Glennon, of St. Louis. Supreme
Knight iuawarci u. 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.
One of the interesting events of to
day was the baptism of three Filipino
infants by Mgr. 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. Their names
are, respectively, Pocahontas, James
town Pacific and Patrick Henry Bry
an, the latter having been named on '
Patrick Henry day by William Jen
nings Bryan.
The news of the re-election of
Messrs. Hearn and Colwell of this city
to 16' offices of president and secre
tary, respectively, of the national body
of the Knights of Columbus, was
awaited with . some dubiousness by
their friends here last evening. There
were warm contests on for both of
fices. , It was rumored about town early last
evening that Mr. Colwell had. been de
feated for the office of grand secre
tary, in spite of the years, of service
which he had to his creetlt The rumor
was supposed to be based on private
telegrams sentio friends of the oppos
ing candidates. The reports, however,.
were later proved to De untrue, as
Mr. Colwell was elected by a large
majority. , .
