la thcPunaccafor Strike. Troubles Favored by Many who WERE INTERVIEWED THURSDAY By tho Intelligencer ? Sympathy for I the men Expressed, but tho Stagnation ojf Business Must end, and Din-1 Interested Arbitration is a Remedy that is Fair to Both Sides in tho Present Controversy. /An Intelligencer reporter last night Interviewed a score of representative citizens In search of Ideas for the settlement of the street car strike, and with one exception all were In favor of orbltr&tlon. The citizens seen embraced manufacturers, physicians, clergymen, lawyers, city and county officials, merchants and worklngmen. None cared to be quoted, hence the absence of the names. The following was the list of questions submitted by the reporter: First?Suggest a plan for ending the strike. . Second?Should not the strikers accept disinterested arbitration? Third?Do you favor riding on the cars again If the men decline arbitration? Fourth?What percentage of loss have have you observed through the strike In your own .business? In answer to the first auestlon, the plan suggested for ending the strike was arbitration, with the exception of a manufacturer, who believed the strikers ought to accept the company's offer of cents an hour, and he took the Stand that the^peopje ought to patr.onlze the cars unless the men recede from iiielr position by Sunday. The manufacturer therefore nnswered "yes" with much posltiveneps to the third question, and contented himself with this expression of his opinion in the controversy. With this exception, the sentiment was unanimous in favor of arbitration, and as embodied In the second query, that of disinterested arbitration. The plan proposed was for the selection of */??c yji mxji c repieseiiiulives 01 tne company and strikers, who in turn would select the odd arbitrator. Arbitration was suggested as the only path out of the present tangle, and the opinion was expressed that public sentiment would desert the strikers unless they agreed to it. As one citizen pointed out, arbitration was the only recourse left, since the strikers had conceded one cent, that Is agreeing to 19 cents an hour, and the company had offered 17J,A cents, an increase from the present rate of 16 cents of 1*? cents, both parties showing no signs of relentirg. and the public remaining in suspense with business in a state of semi-stagnation. "Do you favor riding on the cars a?";iln if the men decline arbitration?" produced a ready response in the affirmative from some of those interviewed, while others hesitated in answering. The hesitating ones expressed their sympathy *or the strikers, and said they would like the men to get all they were asking for. but said they would ride on the cars, if the men flatly decline to accept disinterested arbitration. Owing to the lateness of the hour when the reporter started on his mission, he was unabli to see many merchants. consequently he was unable to gather data concerning the question pertaining to the percentage of loss to business sustained through the strike. A physician with a large ofllce practice j said he was a sufferer, as he had pa- ! dents In outside towns whom the strike prevented from visiting him. A druggist with customers in r.enwoo-? and McMechen spoke in the same t^nor. and a clergyman said the attendant:? In his church was cut in half. Another pastor. whoso congregation is seemingly more loyal, hadn't perceived any decreased attendance. IJttle light can ne thrown on this question, however, by clergymen, lawyers and professional men, hut retailers and Jobbers In the business district have certainly suffered in a large measure. Several citizen" ventured the prediction that the strikers would soon look on arbitration with favor, and they were ! confident the men would come to this j conclusion If it was made plain to them that the third party in the settlement would be disinterested, with no leaning either way, and resolved only to effect a satisfactory compromise. THE "LIVING WAGE" Dificusscil by "llackboue."?There is no Such Argument in the Strike. To tho Editor of tho Intelligencer. SIR:?Allow me to think a little in public about the "living wage'' argument of the strike-leaders. What the strikero are standing out for is nineteen cents an hour and nine hours n day. This is what they call n living wage, and they soy they cannot afford to accept anything else, and that is why the striko continues. But If they gain what they ask, <hey will be worse off than If they took what the company offers. Nine times nineteen cents is $171, the daily wages they ask. Twelvo times seventeen and one-half cents is $2 10, the dally wage the com pany offers. Isn t it plain beyond a doubt, first, that there Is no foundation for any such "living wage" argument, and second, that the strike leaders who pretend that this is their cause of action are dealing in trickery? There's a nigger In the wood-pile, perhaps two of them. The speeches and orations and prayers we have had in public, comparing the strikers to stnrving workers in metropolitan sweat-shops, and the word-pictures of a tyrannous corporation holding up honest workmen by the throat and tearing the bread from the mouths of their hungry children, may be considered excellent politics or excellent religion by people who feel that way, but 1 feel like shutting, out the lawyer-politicians and the preacherpoliticians and the labor-politicians, and undertaking to tell other people like th"m to talk sense or keep under cover until this matter Is settled. Now. what is th* real trouble? Here two humble miggcstlons. First, that The foods we eat furnish energy for the body just as burning coal makes steam for an engine. The experiments of Prof. Frankland, Ph. D., of London, shows that cod-livcr oil yields two and one-half times more energy than starches or sweets. Scott's Emulsion is pure cod-livcr oil combined with hypophosphitcs of lime and soda. It forms fat, gives strength, enriches the blood, invigorates the nerves, and repairs tissues. )'* ao?l ii.oo, all ilriif.xlitf. SCOTT u LOW tit, Qitailjti, iiow Yoik.

Try a bottlo GOETZE'S DRUG STORE. the strike-leaders think that by the use of threats and boycotting they car force the public to support them, although thpv mnv think thp men nre asking what Is unjust. Second, that there Is something In the common tallf that two strike leaders arc keeping ur the trouble because It puts money int<: their pockets. Perhaps wo all know there Is more or less reason In one 01 the other of these suggestions. If so, what are we going to do about it? Support tho strikers? I favor the company In Its preseni position. I don't have occasion to use the cars, but I wouldn't hesitate to dc so now; In fact, I couldn't honorablj walk, feeling as I do. How Is it wit* some of the rest of you? If you arc disgusted with the present stnndpolnl of the strike-leaders, aren't you Just a little more disgusted with yourself because you are afraid-to ride? BACKBONE. "Wheeling, May 4.

VICTIM WAS TO GET $3,600 On his Investment, but by the Smooth Operations of n Pair of Clever Swindlers he got Nothing bnt nn Bnvelopo Filled "With Worthless Taper?These men are Working this Section and Should be Looked for. A young man from a certain town out the Baltimore & Ohio road In West Vlr glnla, about 120 miles from Wheeling, came to this city yesterday In chase of an El Dorado of greenbacks. He expected to exchange $350 in good money for 53,600 In "green goods" o? a quality that It was claimed would deceive Uncle Sam himself?Instead, he gave up his $350 and got In exchange an envelope filled with brown paper. j.l was mu Burnt; oiu siory. xne young man had been In correspondence with ; the green goodo people off and on for ^ two years, and finally came to Wheel- s Ing by appointment yesterday to ex- ii change $350 for $3,000. Before he came 11 to Wheeling, however, one of the two Jj i swindlers who were engineering the job c r .went out to the town In Weat Virginia t where the victim lives, and arranged ? | for the meeting here. ], The swindlers, who arc two well a i dressed Individuals who have been stop- 1 ! ping at the Hotel Windsor for about a 1 r week, met their victim and accompanied i him to the hotel, and the deal was talk ed about at some length. Finally, the n man's 5350 was placed In an envelope, e ^ which the pair took charge of, but a j few minutes later they handed back the C envelope (or what the victim supposed ? was the same envelope) and proposed ^ that he keep his money until he and one c , of the pair could go to the Adams Ex- v . press office and get the "green goods" i that was to figure in the transaction, j. This was done, and the two went to the t! i express office. ' Just here the swindle was completed. The man who accompanied the rural . West Virginian to the express olfic'e, ex! cused himself on some pretext, promlslng to return in a minute or two?but j, he never came back, and after waiting ? rip.irlv two hnnrs Ihn victim Vnmp tn s . the conclusion that he had been swin- ** died. His first act was to look after x his money. Hurriedly tearing open the t envelope he found it contained nothing 11 but brown paper?the swindlers had [J kept the envelope containing the $350 a and had given their victim exactly what 1; he deserved for engaging; in such a n shady transaction?nothing. The rurallte has returned home a wiser and sadder man. Chief Clemans was called in on the r case, but too late to capture the swind- <lers, who had, of course, hurriedly left 0 the city Immediately upon fleecing their. c victim. They had been stopping at the t> Windsor a week or more, and had been f, seen by the police, who, however, be- li lleved they were engage! In legitimate ^ business.
