REFUSE UNION DEMANDS
" j . l.! ' ? *
Richmond Contractors Declare They
Are Unalterably Opposed to Dic
tation as to Their Employees
I Richmond, Oct. 4.?Members of the
AQfick) RuiMong Trades. Association,
who comjprise 95 per cent of the con
tractors and builders supply houses
t '
of Richmond, are absolutely opposed
t<o the dem'ajnd of the Building Trades
Council of Richmtond that all workmen
on co rust ruction projects here carry
the card! of the council. The conten
tion of the employers is that they
should enjoy the right of engaging
any workmen whom they may seQect
and that they are unalterably oppos
ed! to dictation from the union in this
matter.
In a statement just issued over the
| signature of the secretary the asso
ciation maintains that the "members
dia'jm their legal' and constitutional
right to select their own emiployees
on such terms as may be agreed upon
and do not recognize the authority of
the council to enforce its laws, card
system or other regulation, on our
buikfings or in our shops." The Build
ing and Trades Courtcil is connected
dosefty with the building trades de-1
I pantiment of the American Federation
' of Labor.
It is Understood that the matter
reached a crisis yesterday when the
Allied! Building Trades Association re
ffsed to meet with n committee from
the labor council to confer on the
question of drafting an agreement >to
govern wages, hours, working condi
tions and other details. When it was
learned that the union was to hold
out inflexibly for the use of the card
sysjtem the contractors refused to con-J
sid!er a conference, it is learned.

ASSASSIN ESCAPES
Desperado Believed to be a Washing
ton Bootlegger ? Was Wearing
Hunting Coat With Many Pockets
About 8.30 o'clock this morning
while Officer Charles Miller was on
Duke sitreet, between Patrick and
Henry, he accosited a strange negro
who he had reason to believe was a
bootlegger. The darkey wore a hunt
ing coat, the garment generally worn
by negroes vftio make their living defy
irtg the prohibition law. While the of
ficer w'as engaged in sizing him up
the black, who had a pistel in bis
'Sleeve, suddenly drew the weapon and
(iisicharged it at the officer. The lat
ter succeeded in knocking the pistol
taside and the ball went wild. The
negro then took to Ms heels and dis
appeared somewhere in the bottom
ea<s(t of the paint shop of at the South
ern Railway depot.
Officer Miller was not carrying his
pistol at the time. When news of the
attempted murder reached the sta
tion Wouse the entire police force
?scattered toward every section of the
city 'for the purpose of ferrcrting out
the would-be assassin.

Slept More and Seemed to
Have Rested Com
fortably
IS STILL GRAVELY ILL
Members of Family Remain at the
White House?Another Consultation
Held at. Eleven O'clock This Morning
President Wilson spent a quiet
nighit, it was stated unofficially at
the White House this morning.
He rfeipt m<ore than on the preced
ing night., and seemed to have rested
more. But attaches of the Executive
Mansion point out that the President
is still "gravely ill."
Members of the family remained at
the White House,
Shortly after 10 o'clock Dr. Sterl
ing Ruff/in, Dr. E. R. Stitt, U. S. N.,
an'd Dr. Grayson began another con
sulltation. Dr. F. X. Dercum, due here
from Philadelphia about 11 o'clock,
was expected to go immediately to
'the White ,Hiouse to join the eon
siutlftJation.
President Wilson was a little bet-,
ter last night, but his illness was by
no means out of the serious stage
The night bulletin from Rear Admi
ral C. ,T. 'Grayson, his personal .phy
sician. described his condition as about
the same "with a slight improve
ment."
When Dr. Grayson left the White
House for the Executioe offices the
President had put two full hours in
easy r.'atural slumber and ,was still
sleeping. It was the first natural rest
he had taken since hrs nervous period
and it constituted the most heartening
sign of the day.
At a late hour last night Mr. Mc
Adoo, the President's son-in-law.
made a visit to the White House. He
was met at the door by Dr. Grayson
and usflered immediately inside.
Unusual significance was attached
to.Mr. McAdoo's visit for the reason
that he had announced earlier in the
day that he intended to go to NeW
York lasfc night. His change of plan's
gave 'ri$e to-the,> belief" that the Pi;esi
condition may have" become worse,
Snaking it imperative-for him to re
main at call.
? Mr. McAdoo declined, to. make any
statement" as to vthe reasons/for higu
decision to remain in Washington
nor for his late visit to the White
House.
The President's present condition
can be be described as "serious,
though not immediately dangerous." I

PROTESTS RESULT
Cars For Humphreys Now
Stationed at Upper End
of King Street
NO MORE ?OMPLAINTS
For Short Period Wore Located On
Columbus South of Kin#?Protests
Were Made.
The jitneys operating between
this city and Camp Humphreys have !
again cWangcd their location, The j
jftneys are now located at t'he up- 1
per ned of King street, east of the
Union passenger railway stat'fon.
Ever since the jitneys started op
erating bctwen this city and Camp
Humphreys they have been moved
fitom one location, to another. In
most instances pretests were made
to the authorities against their lo
cating a't the points where they
were stationed. It was claimed
by the protectants that they were
a nuisance.
Trouble .with .the jitneys first
started when they were moved from
Alfred street south 'of King to Pitt
street scuth of King. Protests
against their locating oh Pitt street
were m'ade and enly recently they
were stationled on Columbus street'
soUth of Kirg street.
The jitneys are rrr.w located on
upper King street far from any res
idential .property and the authori
ties say tihat so ,far .they have re
ceived 'on,.complaints regarding the
new location. It is,,, therefore,
thought that this location will hero
after be a .permanent one, and that
the ccmplair.ts regarding thejit
