who weighed it carefully in her hand

When the bell rang for the begin
ning of the game, the president shift
ed uneasily in his seat, the umpire
gave the signal and Mr. Taft raised
his arm. Catcher Street stood at the
plate ready to receive the ball, but
the president knew the pitcher was
the man who usually began business
operations with it, so he threw it
straight to the pitcher, Walter John
son. The throw was a little low. but
the pitcher stuck out his long arm
and grabbed the ball before it hit the
ground. The ball was never actually
put in play, as it is to be retained as
a souvenir of the occasion.
As the game progressed and Wash

the outset, the president became en
thusiastic and repeatedly applauded
the brilliant work of the young Wash

maining until the last Philadelphian
had been retired.

This utterance injected to the con

"But there is another qualification,

8TATED THAT SETTLEMENT IS
PRACTICALLY A VICTORY
All of the Strikers Are to Be Taken
Back and Guaranteed at Least $2
Per Day Until They Have Secured
Regular Runs 5,000 Men Stick
to the End.
Philadelphia, April 14.—The com
mittee of nineteen composed of rep
resentatives of the striking motor
men and conductors from each of
the barns of tne Philadelphia rapid
transit company, met tonight and
voted in favor of accepting asettle
ment offered by the company
through representatives of the Am
erican Federation of Labor.
The terms of the settlement have
not yet been made public but it is
said they include many of the fea
tures of the proposal made through
Mayor Reyburn on March 20, when
the company agrees to take back'all
the strikers and to guarantee then
$2 a day until regular runs could be
secured for them. The cases of the
174 men whose discharge precipitat
ed the strike on Feb. 19, will be sub
mitted to arbitration.
The transit company has been hir
ing new men every day since its first
offer of settlement was refused and
only yesterday representatives of the
company claimed to have enough
men to operate all cars on the sched
ules which were in effect before the
strike was called.
The strikers on the other hand
claimed that their ranks were un
broken and more than 5,000 men'
were still on strike.
Since the beginning of the strike
28 persons have been killed by trol
ley cars. These accidents, the strik
ers claimed, were caused by inexper
ienced motor men.

Spokane, Wash., April 14.—"Robert,

The foregoing inscribed on the reg
ister in the rooms of the University
club of Spokane, are Mr. Robert's
claims to membership in that organi
zation. He is one of the six surviv
ors of a class of eighty, called the
'49ers of Brown," of whom another
members is James B. Angell, presi
dent of the University of Michigan.
Mr. Robert, who came from Texas
to Spokane four years ago to engage
in truck farming and poultry culture,
is a native of Georgia, of French
Huguenot extraction, and served as
adjutant under General Stonewall
Jackson from 1861 to 1864. He was
wounded at Chancellorsville.
Though 81 years of age Mr. Robert
is in excellent health.
"College life in the early '40s, was
interesting," Mr. Roberts said after
he and Madam Robert had welcomed
the interviewer. "We did not travel
around playing baseball in those days.
We stayed at home and worked. Of
course we played ball some, too, but
it was among ourselves. We had sport
those days, but we did not make a
business of it.

educated and not to become 'star' ath
letes, and it was exceptional for the
yearly expenses to exceed $500. There
were fraternities, but they did not
hold the important place in under
graduate days they do at present."
Some of Mr. Robert's reminiscen
ces of the early '60s throw light on the
stirring events of the war. His rec
ollection of the battle of Sfcenandoah
is an example. School histories tell
of Sheridan's ride from Winchester,
but they do not mention the fact, the
veteran said, that if the general had
not been away from home he would
have been in a southern prison the

'No canteen, and not a word above
a whisper,' were the orders as they
started over the mountain and filed
into the *valley," said -Mr. Robert, in

Mr. Robert's recollections of the
conflict are not the romantic fancies
of a contemplative veteran—his mem
ory for facts is simply amazing.
