The relations between President Phillips,
of the Metropolitan lire, nnd his niployes
are now to strained that a general tic up
or the roads controlled by him may be im
lutdiately expected. If lie decs not jicld
to certain demands to be made on him this
morning by the executive committee of
the Protective Street Railway Union.
The Morning Times gave yesterday a,
full ar.d cxcluclvc report or a nutting at
lunch's nail on Monday night, at which
the grievances of Ihemen were discussed.
As a matter of precaution and business
like method tlie men determined to do
nothing until after a conference with
President Philips, -which is to be held
at 1 1 o'clock this morning, but from the
tcnipcror lite men yesterday and last night,
if there is to le any jielding this time it
must come from President Phillips.
It was indeed n turpritc to some, who had
known of the present status, that decided
action was not taken at the meeting on
Monday night.
The emplojcs were nut disponed to do
much talkirg yesterday or laet night, but
tbey are determined that Mr. Phillips shall
answer their ultimatum, to be presented
to day, in plain unmistakable terms nnd
with tufficient guarantee of faith, and the
best possible assurances that faith will
hertutler be kept.
The meeting on Monday night -was one
decidedly representative of the Protective
Railway Union ard of all the lines in which
Mr Phillips is interested.
Ills latest move has tiecn to transfer men
from the Ninth street line, and vice versa,
trying by this means to get the members of
the union at war with one another, and In
this way consummate his pet scheme of
dUiuteg ration.
Another thing which the men bitterly
complain of is the employment by Mr.
Phillips or a man named Elliott, who,
while he enjoys the title of a supervisor
of the line, U, they claim, nothing mure
than a "spotter," and has used every means
in his power to make trouble between the
president and the men, taking advantage
of every opportunity to report them for
the mol trivial offenses.
This has been going on Tor some time past,
and the men have made repeated demand
for his removal. Mr. 1'hUlips has promised
to retire the man, but, like tbe other pmru-i--es
he has made, has railed to ke-ep it.
Elliott has alwas, it seems, been In bad
odor with the members or the union. He
n-as employed in the same capacity he now
enjoys tinder Mr. Plerson's regime, but
but became xo obnoxious that that official
fojnd it necessary to relegate hlin to a car.
Another demand that will I, itM'le upon
President Phillips at the conference
Is that the men shall only work ten
hours instead of twelve and fiftem as they
do at present, ai.d that tvo sets of men
shall lie employed on the road.

M. Wilson Doesn't Caro.
A caso has now been made which will
easily serve as a lest of the eight-hour law,
as stated exclusively in The Evening Times
Frank M. McVaugh, ol Philadelphia, in
charge of the structural iron work in the
addition to the Government Printing Ofrice,
has Jieen working Ills men twelve hours a
day aud paying them for only eight hours.
Tbe effect of this is to reduee the pay for
the eight hour day by one-third and to
lenve the men with a mere pittance for
hard, dangerous work. Mr. McVaugh lias
endeavored to evade the law by a contract
by which the men relinquished their
The contract for the structural Iron work
was originally awarded to the Phoenix
Company, who in turn sub-let it to Mc
Vaugh & Co., of Philadelphia. Trank M.
McVaugh Is a member or the Hrm, and is
superintending the work now being done
at the Printing Ofrice.
The men claim that they have been paid
Insutrident wages for the character of the
work they ore doing. McVaugh only agree
ing to pay them seventeen cents per hoar
as against twenty-live cents, the regular
price paid by all other companies for simi
lar work.
In addition they are compelled to work
from four to five hours over the regular
lime with no additional wages over the
regular prices. A great many of the work
men also state that they have not been
paid lor two weeks, and fli.d it impossible
to get the contractor to adjust their ac
counts. Whena Times reporter visited the building
joterday there were fifteen or twenty men
standing around, refusing to go to work.
They bitterly denounced Mr McVaugh and
his treatment of them.
McVaugh when been made the following
"I pay the men Jast ns much as I Intend
to pay them, and If they don't like the
wages they are getting they are at liberty
to find something else to do. A great many
of the men have refused to go to work this
mornlrg, nnd I will supply their places
with other roca.
"Is it truc" asked the reporter, "that
you owe s.ime'ot the men for back worK"
"Yes, I owi! some of the men who have
-topped wort, nut as they did so of their
own accord they will have to wait until
Saturday week, the regular pay day, to
get their money. When I discharge a man
I pay him up In full, but when a man leaves
me I have a vulo cot to pay htm until our
regular payday.)(
"The men have no grievances whatever
that 1 can Jiicer as ney all s-gned an
agreement waiving their rights."
llr. McVaugh produced tbe agreement,
which reads as tallows:
"We, the undsrs-gned, employes orFrank
M. McVaugh, agree to work twelve hours
per day, or more, in the erection ol the
structural ironwork Tor the new building
for the Government Printing Office of
Washington, D. C, and hold the said Frank
M. McVaugh entirely harmless against the
provisions or the law which specirics eight
hours as a day's work; we waiving all
right to-claim under said law that eight
hours arc to constitute a day's work; It
being agreed that we are to be paid for the
said work at the rates agreed upon for
the number of hours worked each day."
This agreement was signed by nearly
all of the men employed on the iron work
at the building. Mr. McVaugh lias In this
way endeavored to evade the law which
names eight hours as a day's work, and thus
seeks to compel the men to work overtime.
A great many of the men state they did
not know what they were signing, some
of them being unable to read, but being out
of work at the time they signed tlie paper,
not knowing, however, that they were
ignrng away their rights.
The men are determined to light it out
ind the war promises to be quite bitter.
The matter will be brought to the notice
of tho labor unions and it is thought they
will take altlon on the matter at once.
The law which the men charge the con
tractor with violating reads as follows:
"That the service and employment of
all laborers and mechanics who are now
or may hereafter be employed by the Gov
ernment of the United Stales, by the Dis
trict of Columbia, or by any contractor or
subcontractor upon an y or the inibllc worts
of the United States or or the said District
of Columbia, Is hereby limited and restricted
to eight hours in any one calendar day, and
it shall be unlawrul ror any ofricer or
the United States Government or or the
District of Columbia or any such contractor
or subcontractor whose duty it shall be
to employ, direct or control the services of
such laborers or mechanics to require or
permit any such laborer or mechanic to
work more than eight hours In any calendar
da y. exce-pt In case of extraordinary emer
gency. "That any officer or agent or the Gov
ernment or the United States or or the
District or Columbia, or any contractor
or subcontractor whose duty it shall bo
to employ, eilrect or control any laborer or
mechanic employed upon any or the public
works or the United States or or the Dis
trict or Colombia, who shall intentionally
violate any provision or this act shall be
deemed guilty or a misdemeanor, and for
each and every such offense shall, upon
conviction, be punished by a fine not to ex
ceed $1,000 or'by Imprisonment for not
more than six months, or by both such
fine and imprisonment. In the discretion f
the court haying Jurisdiction thereof."
Col. John M. Wilson, Superintendent of
Public Bulldingsf'ln charge of the work,
was asked if behind anything to say on
the subject, jno replied that ho had not.
It was, ho'said, a matter of difrerence
between the rontractnr and his employes,
over which he (Col. Wllsonhad no control.
His time, he said, was taken up with more
important business, and he could not under
take the adjustment of these minor differ
ences. Miss Anthony Taken 111.

drawal from the pust of watchman at the
Upon this offer MaJ Moore directed that
he appear before Capt. Austin and others
at 2 p m. Friday. It Is understood that
tbe hearing will not be before the regular
police trial board, but berore.a special
body named to hear Mr. Cotter's state
ments. It may be that no charges more
rormal than the verbal statements by Bupt.
Stevens at the time of his removal from
the beach was determined on wUl be
In the meantime Mr. Cotter Is said to
be actively preparing to make a strong
defense. He Is expected to admit serious
disagreement between hlmselt and Supt.
Stevens as to how the beach should be
H thought It shtiild be with a good
deal or latitude In Isrgnage, while Supt,
Stevens wanted things done on what
Mr. Cotter considers "a Sunday-school
plan." Also It is prolabl lie will try
to show that money niHtters were loosely
managed, and there were tany opportu
intles ror money to be misplaced or to go
Into the hands or persons who could not
be held accountable lot It.
One thing likely to be brought before the
board is the cause which led the young
lady cashier to leave her work at the beach
about two niuntns ago. jir. e.oiier, h
is stated, contends that she left liecause
fce was not sufficiently paid, owing to
Mr. Stevens stingy policy. On the other
band. Mr. Stevens says that she left oa
account of Mr. Cotter's talk. His mother
and other relatives, he states, were greatly
Incensed at what Mr Toltersaid, and came
down to the beach to see about the mat
ter. Mr Cotter ileelared that he had no In
tention of giving any offense and finally
paeificd them, but the mother nevertheless
refused to allow her daughter to remain
there any longer.
After this lady left -Supt. Stevem took
his daughter Into the ofrice, and Mr. Cotter
told her rather That a good deal or the
money taken in was going Tor candy at the
stand near by. But Mr. Stevens replied
that he allowed her a small sum to buy
candy and the child said she never exceed
ed it.
Major Moore yesterday sent ror Supt.Ste
vens and told him or the hearing be-rore
the trial board. He asked that witnesses
be subpoenaed and allevidenceputinshape
Tor easy and rapid consideration.
Mr. Cotter said to Mr. Stevens, when be
understood the latter was not disposed to
press the case, that there was no power
to make a person testify belore the board.
The act providing lor power to subpoena
witnesses to appear before the board failed
to make provision to pay witness fees,
and no witness can be compelled to appear
without pay.
He and Jlla Wife Want S40.000 From
Chicasro Police Of ficlaH.
Chicago, Sept. 16. An echo of the re
cent Investigation by the police in this
city for evidence against H. H. Holmes
was beard to-day when the papers in two
suits, each for $20,000 damages, were
filed against Chief of Police Badenoch and
Inspector Fitzpatrick.
The complainants are Tatrick Quin

were held by the police on suspicious or

In which some or the many alleged vic

his wile allege in their bill that In con
sequence or their arrest and detention
their standing in the community has been
Irreparably injured, and tbey think that
$40,000 between them would make things

Washtnston Urged as HeinHiusirters
for the Odd Fellows.
Atlantic City, N J., Sept. 10. It is ex
pected that a great fight will be started
to-morrow between the Washington and
Baltimore Odd Fellows at the convention
for supremacy. The former hold that the
Capital City is the prorcr place for the
headquarters, while the Baltimoreans
contend that the Monumental City Is en
titled to the distinction on account or the
foundation of the order and the initilu
tlon r the first lodge in 1819.
When the news leake-I out that a movement-
was on loot to-night to have the
Sovereign Grand Lodge change the situ
ation or affairs, pickets were put on guard
and messengers sent out to notify all the
representatives of the order here to be on
the alert.
A well-informed member caid that a
similar effort was made some time ago,
but failed of its purpose for the simple
reason tbat it was the desire of certain
people to have headquarters in Washington
for political purpotcs; hat the politicians
were at the bottoruof the whole matter.

It Causes a Terrible How In theSontl)
Carolina Con cation.
Columbia, S. C. Sept. 16. The two
greatest or the recognized reform leaders
Tillman and Irbyalon; with otberetalwarts
or tus South Carolina jiolitlcal world, be
came entangled in a creonaland political
controversy to-day tbat caused Irby to rake
Tillman lore and art.
Fraternal relations were cast to the
winds by the Tillman brothers, and tlma
and again tbe president had to call upon
the sergeant-at-arms or the convention
and order him to preserve tbe peace.
No such sensational event. It is safe to say,
has ever occurred in the State of South
Carolina within tbe past decade.
The whole thing came from George D.
Tillman's speech in regard to the establish
ment or Butler county and the action or
the convention In so establishing and
naming the county in the absence ot
Senator Tillman. The Senator was never
more bitter, perhaps. In his whole career.
Things that he said of Gen Butler were
rough in the extreme and he did not mince
words in speaking ol his elder brother.
His whole Irame as he spoke seemed to
quiver with passion. Irby, too, spoke
Willi more energy and pasion than he har
ever yet been known to display.

Outing Club's Latest Victory.
The last or a series or three games bet ween
teams was played at the Washington
Outing Club Park yesterday.
Notwithstanding the determination of the
Senators to reeleem themselves after losing
two of the series, they were completely
frozen out to the tune of 13 to 1 and were
never in the game with the now unbeatn
Outing team, which has wou twenty-eight
consecutive games this season. Including
contents with some of the strongest local
teams. It is a proud record and one rarely
earned by au amateur team.
The Outing Club presented its star
pitchers, Roche and Clifford, and Damnum,
catcher, and their faultless work together
with excellent team fielding and batting
were tlie features of this last and most
overwhelming victory.
