April 1C. ( hive! nor ) Dunne has ordered the members nf the) .state hoard nf arbitration to offer1 their services to the Chicago lb'ilding j Trades workmen and their employers in the interest of industrial peace. . I call was issued immediately for a i mooting of the hoard on Moiid-iv. It is estimated that 125,001' -wage-earners in Chicago are made jobless by iln strike and lockout today. Employing Interests predicted the list of idle will grow unless an agree ment to arbitrate is reached. The siril;e order issued by the car penters" district counsel, which be came effective at the close of work yesterday, was folowed today by a retaliative measure in the form of a lockout directed at lfi.OOU carpenters engaged in construction work all over Cook county. The lockout debarred union carpenters from work on 41(111 building" which are bein'r erected by 1200 contractors who are pledged and bonded to maintain their stand until every union in the structural trades comes to terms. The term? include an anti-strike agreement covering a period of three years. I'nion leaders declared tonight the strike will not. end until the demands of the tut a for. increased wages of .. cents an hour is grunted. Resides a total of 60,000 unionists of Ytirlous branches of the building trades, at least 60,000 more men and women in the shops and iiiills that furnish material for buildings are laid off. The labor situation in Chicago lias been growing more tense each day since March 1. when the lathers went on strike. ' Three building trades unions that are confronted with the alternative of accepting the Employers' association's terms or being locked out are the Bridge and Structural Iron Workers, Cement Finishers and Marble Setters. The structural iron workers have been avoiding a settlement because of a jurisdictional dispute with the Build ing Laborers" union, which has made a demand for the right to set rein forcing steel in concrete. The iron workers say they have a prior claim to this work. The cement finishers are demanding ft." cents an hour for the first year, CT'A cents for the second and To cents for the third year. Settlement of the dispute between the '.Marble Setters' union and the employers has been delayed by a jurisdictional fight with the Brick laycrs' union which wants to absorb the marble setters.

Buelow's course, it is Ixdieved, will be devoted now to conveying to Austria the idea that to sutisfy Italy is not a mea sure of the moment, but a farsighted step for the future, his argument being that to close an Austro-Italian union would give the triple alliance new vigor.

England this afternoon experienced the third hos tile air raid within forty-eight hours but the last like those immediately preceding it, resulted in no loss of I life and no serious damage to prop jerty. Taking advantage of the fine j flying weather which enabled a Zep 1 pelin to visit the vicinity of Tyne j on Wednesday ilight and the coasts were dropped in the vicinity of the towns or Faversham and Sitting liourne. the latter just across the Bugle from the Isle of Sheppey. which was the birthplace of the British royal naval flying corps.

There is an inclination here to consider the raid only in the nature of reconnaissances for, except in the case of the aeroplane bases, the points of military importance were avoided, although in each case- the aircraft passed within a short dis tance of such places. In view of this belief extra precautions are be ing taken while the fine weather last". The allies are already making reprisals for all German attacks over the fighting zone, ahd it is considered here likely the raids over England will receive their reply lefore vers ions.

Aldrieh. for Many Years a Member of Congress and Framer of Tariff Laws, Succumbs to Attack of Apoplexy TO HOLD FFNERAL SEN DA V AFTERNOON Influence Exerted by Him on Governmental Affairs Illustrated by Title of "General Manager of the Fnited States" ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH NEW YORK, April 16. Nelson W. Aldrieh. former fnited States sena tor from Rhode Island, died here this morning of apoplexy following an at tack of indigestion since yesterday. He will !e buried Sunday afternoon at Providence. Those at the bedside when Aldrieh died include his wife. Miss A'ldrieh, Mrs. John I). Rockefeller, Jr., daugh ters and Winthrop Aldrieh, a son. Bom in l-'oster, R. I., Nov., 6, 1841, Nelson Wilmarth Aldrieh first appeared in public office as member of the common council in the city of Providence. He was elected to the Rhode Island assembly in 1ST". and four years later sent to congress. After two sessions he was elevated to the senate, as successor of General Ambrose E. Rurnside. Mr. Aldrieh held a seat in the Fnited States enate continuously from 1SS1 to 1S1I. The influence ex erted by him on governmental af fairs was best illustrated by the fa.et that when he was satirically intro duced to an audience as "the general manager of the Fnited States," that appellation lived through the admin istrations of MeKinloy, Roosevelt luid raft. Probably . tiie greatest parliament -arian that ever served in the Senate, Mr. Aldrieh had no difficulty in maintaining leadership of his party. Although known among the veterans as a "committee" senator he was quite as much at home on the floor and naturally wis more in evidence in the larger arena. While he gave special attention to the tariff and financial legislation in, committee, on the senate floor his ear was open for all that was said on yiiy subject f general importance. He Seldom failed to particulate in the discussion of any measure affecting govern mental polieies. Naturally .Mr. "Aldrieh's long-continued supremacy in the counsels of his party and in directing legislation caused him to become the subject of much adverse criticism. He was charge! with bossism and with being the tool of the "interests." Whether or not this was true in the main, it can be said in fairness that some of these assertions gained and held currency because it was his policy never to defend himself against pub lished attacks. He rarely permitted himself to be quoted by the press. The fact that his daughter was married to a son of John D. Rocke feller served to strengthen the. popu lar impression that Senator Aldrieh was in some way peculiarly friendly to the oil magnate, and considerate of the so-called "Rockefeller inter ests." Yet when a friend of the semir (Continued on Page Two) o Ground Strewn With Skulls Of Germans Slain ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH NKCVE CHAPELLE, April If,. The ground AVest of this shattered town whence the Rritish drove the Germans in the middle of March with terrible loss of life to both sides, is literally cobbled with German skulls. Beneath the surface six inches, the bayonet meets the resist ance of cloth and flesh. In No .Mans Ijind between the Rritish and Ger man trenches, the bodies lie thick, and neither daring remove the ;orps, they are likely to be there when sum mer comes. So quickly did the Rritish break thiougn the German line that full details are only now- becoming known even to the men who participated. The suddeness of the advance : was such that the men were so dazed only knew they got through. Tiie Rritish officers assert it was too Itiick for the best results, the Ger man line giving way so suddenly that the British, like a man hits an opponent with all his might, and en counters slight resistance, is thereby thrown oft his balance. "If we had had a chance for it that day, I believe we could have taken Aubers also, and perhaps Lille," said one otlieer wun a smite. .At any rate we gave the Germans .the worst drubbing of the war, and the effect of our front was incalcuable. Every man on the British army believes we could break the German line if we wanted to. That is a mighty com fortable feeling." i ' .

Zapata troops are operating along the same railroad and there are fears in Vera Cruz that General Ohregon's line of communication to his Ir.we in the latter place may be cut at any ipoment. The following summary was issued by thelKate department tonight: "Advices from Vera'Cruz dated April 13, state that another victory is claim ed over Villa, who has renewed his at tack with a large force.

Rich made an impassioned appeal to the people of Salt River valley for quick and liberal support from this valley to the stricken people of the St. Johns valley, who had the misfortune to have their storage dam completely destroyed at the time that! this valley was celebrating its great fortune of having tho Roosevelt dam filled with water. Mr. Rich explained the condition in the St. Johns ranches, the need of food, clothing and money. The Rotarians responded quickly, of fering their individual services, as well as club financial aid, and President A. A. Retts appointed Frank E. Rich as chairman, with First Lieutenants W. W. Kdw-ards and P. C. Gettins to represent the Rotary club in the work of getting relief promptly from Salt River valley to the St. Johns people. " The matter had already been taken up with the Santa Fe railroad and with the corporation commission, and the hoie was expressed that it would be possible for the Santa Fe to be given the privilege of transporting free of charge the donations from the Salt River valley. It was also decided to ask the newspapers to give enthusiastic publicity support to a campaign. Another interesting feature at the Rotary club yesterday was an address by Senator H. F. Ashurst on the sub ject of business. W. S. Goldworthy made a very in teresting talk upon the beauties of northern Arizona as a summer resort for Phoenix people, and urged the people of Salt River valley to investi gate these resorts and to spend their vacations in northern Arizona. George W. Barrows told the Rotar ians ot specialization in the making of furniture, at the present time, and made a strong argument vfor the trade, at home movement in this line. Personal insiiection of the article purchased, he said was a big factor in lasting satisfaction for the buyer. The difference in rates on carload lots and on smaller shipments, he stated, made it to the advantage of purchasers to buy their furniture from Phoenix houses, instead of sending their money away, and pay- ing higher freight rates.

April lfi. Harry Thaw was today ordered back to the state hospital for. the criminal insane at Matteawan by the appellate division of the New Tork supreme court. In the opinion, concurred in by all the justices, the court affirm ed the denial by Supreme Justice Page of the motion to return Thaw to the jurisdiction of the state of New Hampshire. The court held the original order committing Thaw to Mattawan was still valid. Plans are now being for mulated to take the case to the state, court of appeals. A decision averse to Thaw came as a great surprise to his counsel. Tho court held that in returning involun tarily to this jurisdiction Thaw was subject to no promise or inducement, and that New Hampshire had only done the duty expected of it when it returned him to New Tork to answer for the crime for which he had been indicted. The order carried with it the pro vision that Thaw could not be taken from New Tork county until five, days have elapsed. The writ of habeas corpus wat sworn out in Thaw's behalf after he was acquitted of the charge of con spiracy is and finally returnable on Monday. At that time counsel will preseBt arguments nrging that their client be granted permission to have a jury determine his present mental condition.
