Commissioner I Donovan was bluntly told that the company I had uo use for him or his committee. i The state board of mediation and arbitra- I tion s<'nt a coumiunication to each of the I presidents of the tied up comjianies. inviting I them to confer with the board at tbe Miuray I Hill hotel. The only response they rereived I was the (xTsonal attendance of Superintend ent Skitt, of the Fourth Avenue. He said that the company was disposed fo settle with their men, but was determined not to nego tiate with the district execu tiate any agreement with the district execu tive board. They were willing, however, to discuss the matter with a comraltto of its own employes. Tlie arbitration commissioners also invito! the district executive board to a conference. ] This invitation was accepted They ex pressed a willingness to submit all differences to arbitration except that they must insist on an agreement to (>ay the men not less than 83 per day. The Sixth avenue line managed to get cars over their route at intervals of from fifteen to twenty minutes, each car being guarded by four police officers. These cars met with numerous obstructions, and the (lollee were -T MU IV < ,/ - r» •1 -ss 4 P_ w v ; - N v, TJ , m VI k , .

At about 3 o'clock the crowd at Thirty-ninth street overturned a peddler's ■agon in front of an approaching car. This caused a good deal of excitement and some delay, but the policemen succeeded in driving the crowd away after arresting the ring leader. Another arrest was made at Thirty fourth street, where the track hail been ob structed by a large truck being placed acre** it. Three other arrests of strikers charged with rioting were made during the day. At 4 p. in. the company «lecidod to suspend altera tions for the day, and no more oars were sent out ot the depot. The Fourth Avenue line only succeed in getting two cars over its road during the day. The strikers of this line were much more demonstrative than those of the other roads, and very serious trouble was threatened sev eral times dur ing the day. At Twenty-third street the strikers unhitched tbe home» from a cross town car', ami then overturned the car across the Fourth avenue tracks. This obstruction was removed with great difficulty by the policemen. The moi« attempted to drive the officers away, but were compelled to succumb to tbe free use of clubs by the policemen. Capt, Kyan arrested the ring leader of this crowd, and was immediately surrounded by a hundred men bent upon res cuing their leader The captain draw his re volver, and gave warning that he would shoot dead the tlrst man who interfered w ith him. He tlien suireeded in getting his (iris oner to the station house without further in terference. The offi.vrs of the couqiany claimed to be satisfied with tbeir day's woi k in getting tbe two ears over the route, and uo others were sent out. The presidents of several of the roods re newed their demands upon the mayor (or police protection. Master Workman Magee tailed upon the mayor, and complained that the police officers were too officious in their opposition to the strikers. The mayor stated tliat the police department was roqxmsible for the preservation of order, and that he was satisfied tliat they were acting with discretion and would not exceed their authority. The causes of the present strike are deep and far reaching in their bearing upon the rela tions between tlie i-onipamesand the men. and in reality they mark a decisive point in the controversy between tbe two sides. The com panies have (or some time been taking the ground tliat they should deal with their em ployes singly, and refuse to treat with the executive committee of the Knights of IsiUir or any repivseutativo Isyly from tlie men. It is upon tills line that all. the companies— Brooklyn air! Kaw Y'oi i—seam to have fallen stek. In Brooklyn the employe* of the vari 1 ou» roads, this ugh the instrumentality of the Knights, prepared an agreement which was sent to the companies to sign in reference to their employes. One clause provided against allowing men to work overtime, and also against '•trippers." Tlte men desired that all employes should is* restricted to working only the regulation ten hours, would not diminish the number of employes. The companies refused to concur in thisclause. The men also charged that the Atlantic Ave nue line was seeking to get more than ten hours' work for ten hours' pay by a shrewd manipulation of the schedule. In New York 'k 1 ' great point at issue is the refusal of the „»,(* t,, recognize the executive committee of •ertime they that by working District Assembly 398, awl their determina tion to deal with the men singly. There is no special grievance on the Eighth Avenue line, for iiadance, and the strike there is "sympa thetic," to aid in forcing tlte recognition of tire chosen ropreseutativ The one institution that is benefiting by of the men. § ; Wit ; -~-T AF AW .■ 'A ■ fV 'W' ( i ; âr if m I I I J 1 ] m ■fk • %,Tvo Mm m p\\ !l i ' N 111' f * i . i > 'snp\ W' « L vm f 4P c CROWDED ELEVATED PLATFORM.

MORE RIOTS IN BROOKLYN. All Kflort» to Comproml»« Fall anti tlie Outlook I« Seriou». Brooklyn, Jan. 39. —The strike on the Ukhanlhon street car system remain* was tlie tlrst hour of the trouble. Neither it side will concede a | oint. The company haveMiadc no attempt to mu a car, nor will they do so until proper police protection is afforded them. This Commis sioner Bell has declined to do on the ground that his force is insufficient. The strikers grow more restless and deter mined. Tliey are angiy that any man should stand by the company, and none of those who are taking care of the horses in tlie stables dare to show his head. Five are at work at the Ninth avenue, two at the Seventh avenue and one young lad at the Fifth avenue stables. Almut fifteen men are working in the stables at Atlantic arid Third avenues. These have all to be fed, but their supply of food is giving out and provisions must lie sent soon to some of them or they will starve. Some provision was sta rtyd on a tr terilav afternoon to toe Ninth, Seventh and Fifth avenue stables, but got no further than the Ninth avenue stahl«« when the strikers gathered about the mounted (»lice escort ami routed them completely, leaving the wagon to return ns quickly as (»«ssiide to the Third ave nue -tables, whence it started.

Vo ten lay morning Secretary Richardson of the conqiany received this dispatch from the hoard in New York: Tlie executive Istlfrd replies to our omnnmtii ropnaitieu tliat they ployes, who de clined to accept. Tho executive board say that heretoforeftt conferences wilü the present com pany a committee of nine employes was always present with such board and with them the president practically dealt, and they suggest such plan of conference agreeable or not? Answer early as Murray Mill hotel. New York, where nay conference you may desire. To this Secretary llirliurelson immediately replied : "The executive l»«anl of District A-sscmbly No. ÎÔ, of the Knights of Labor, ended the conference with us abruptly and without notice Monday, 'Jlst iqst. They have shown no desire to treat tho company fairly. Wo decline to hold further conference with them, as stated to your board last evening, and stand cm the proposition then made." This blast of defiance ended at once all chauct« of any compromise. In the afternoon Gen. James MeLeer and Col. John M. Partridge, of tlie Twenty-third regiment, held a private conference with Mayor Chapin at the city hall, and after thetr departure Secretary William J. Richardson. Treasurer N. U. Frost and Counselor Benja min F. Tracy, of the Atlantic Avenue com pany, were closeted with bis honor. Tho outcome of either conference could not lie learned definitely, but it is believed arrange ments were made whereby the military could l«e calhsi out at very short notice. About 0 o'clock a wagon loaded with pro visions for the railroad men recently em ployed by the company nt the Ninth avenue stables attempted to leave the de(K»t at At lantic and Third avenues. The »-agon, which was guarded by ten policemen, was met by an angry mob who stoned tlie police, hut none of them were «priousiy injured. When tlie wagon dually reached tbe Ninth avenue stables they found that the strikers had barri caded the entrance with Itoxes, barrels, etc Stone throwing began again, but fortunately with no serious results, and the provision,', wire landed sifolv in th? stables.

Jan. 30.-The senate con tinued the consideration of the consular and diplomatic appropriation hill. The Samoan question w as incidentally discussed. Consideration of flic diplomatic hill was resumed at the close of 13e morning hour, the question being on Mr. Gibson's nmombmiut to make the title of minister to France, Ger many, Gnat Britan and Russia ' iimlm- n dors." After a long discussion the amendment was adopted, and the senate went into execu tion to deeide whether the discussion of the Samoan question sliutild Is' publie. It was so deeided liy a close vote, but not a 1 sil ly vote. When the doors were reopened Mr. Sherman said the question attention not only in tills country, hut in Äther countries, and it was due to the senate and to the people of the United States that lie (us he had reported the amendment from the committee on foreign relations) should state, in rallier a skeleton maimer, the facte in l'e gard to tlie matter. He would do so without any feeling whatever, because be lulls'll that the senate would lie unanimous in the adop tion of the amendment. The Samoan Island» (formerly culled tlie .Navigators' Islands) were, he said, almost midway between Sun Francisco and Australia, and were in Uiedi reel line of commercial intercourse. Tlitw islands (eight or ten) comprised In extent some thousand square miles, and contained a popu lalii in of 334,000 innocent, harmless, tracte ble. good humored people of the Polynesian race and about 300 foreigners—German, Kn gli»h and American—with various conuner cial establishment». Those islands had lieen llrst explored and surveyed by Admiral Wilkes, in Ids famous expeilition, and file Get main of tliem wen those made by that expedition. The attention of the United States hail been early called to these islands, and a s|iecial agent was sent there, who afterward became minister to tlie king of Samoa, and who made a treaty lie tween the Uuiteil Slates and Samoa, i hut treaty was made in 18iS, and xvae signed by Mr. Kvai'ts and the king.

Within n year or two afterward Mime what siuiilar treaties had been made with Germany and with Great Britain by whieh those govern ments obtained like privileges in other por lions of the island*», so that each of these three great commercial nations secured l»y treaty privilegwi someulmt similar in charm ter. but in different localities- -each securing a coaling station and harbor. Mr. Siierman went on to s|»eak of n further arrangement made shortly ufterwanl, and which was, lie said, very inqiortaiit. it had been enlei'ed into l »et ween Great Britain and the goyeminent of the Kamoos d»ut the Ger man and American governments were also included in it), by which the town and dis trict of Apia wero constituted into a inum« i pality and were declared t* » U'neulnd terri tory, where each of the three natkms might I establisli their st4H*elu»UM*s. then- workshop and all other buildings mvessnn for carrying on their traffic in those islands. This territory of Apia was now known as the capital of the Samoan Islands, and w as set aside for com mcrciai purpoMft, the government of Bauioa Iming practically excluded from it. The municipal board consisted of the Gor man, English and American consuls.

Mr. Bberuuui next referred Io tiie j treaty of April fi, between Germany mid Groat Britain, by which a sort of ddimita tion was established for tht^ ju.'isdietioii of h government in the Polynesian group, with a disclaimer that this partition shunM apply to the Kninr-na Isbaiids. Timt was the legal status to-day, for no other arrange ment or agreement bad ever been made in a formal way that effeeted in any degree the rights of the several |mrties. He »lid not in tend to g«» into a detaiknl history of events in Samoa. It was enougfi say that there was always a sort of «junsi war existing there l»* tween several brunches of the people. It was u sträng** government, controlled largely by family ties, somewhat aristocratie, with con tentions always existing between the various chiefs. He* would not dwell upon the painful features of tliat civil war; but it seemed to be the general opinion of all the American consular agents who had been sent there to examine into the nature of their government thaï the people wen* totally until to conduct a regular formal government. But tliat civil war had continued until, finally, in l^i, by tbe aid of the » oiikuIs, it w wttled by un agreement tiuit Maltet« m should U» king and Tama«*** vice king. Soon after that settle ment other difficulties* had arisen, and a movement had been made to annex th»* Samoan island« to New Zealand. Malietoa sending an humble appeal to Queen Victoria asking for such annexation. The German government, however, had remonstrated in the most vigorous manner against it. insist ing tiiat it would l-e u violation of the treaty. He spoke ot the treaty made with-Malietoa by the (kennen eonsul *«u Nov. 10, I«*d (shortly after tlie king's piteous proposal to (Jueeu Victoria), and said that this treaty was at tiret approved by tlie German govern ment, but afterwards repudiated on the re fusal of the American ami Knglish govern ments to acquiesce in it, as it practically made Germany supreme over tlie islands and established a German council or lioiti'd of con trol to govern them. Finally Mr, Sherman brought tlie history of events to the confer ence in Washington 1st ween Mr. Bayard and the British and German minister, am) to the sending by each of them of an agent to the islands to obtain further information. He saiil that it was manifest that the rebellion of Tama sene liad been (U-gaiii/ed bÿ the Geraiau consul and by a German named Weber, whe was at the head of a hu ge oonmiercia! house. He mentioned the arrival of n German fire'. at the Glands sometime in May of ISNi, nuJ of a;« iusulluig letter from the vice admiral to Malietoa, in which he addressed him not as king, iic.t a- li.sd chief, it was after these inruib: to Ui» kmg timt Cm ted States Cousu!

This net had lieeu wholly without author ity, and Mr. (invnbaum's part in it had very properly lieen disavowed by the American government. He had no more right to assert a protectorate there than the German or Kiiglish consul had. It was whilst the agent of the three conferees, Mr. Bayard and the English ami German ministers, were engaged in olitaining information that the German government deposed Malietoa and net it) Tamasese This was the worst feature of tin Atter the German 1 iMvmwe at thin very time the iwgntia tioiiH weit* going on on a sound Imals for the I restoration of the status quo.

He r..ulu not nay, however, that he found in the paper* any justification for Germany. Prince Bi* mai*ck, whoHe strong and Imperial will wa shown in all of his communications, assortait t the ixpial l ights of rm h of three governments, but insisted ns n matter of policy that it wotiM be better to place the oust oily of tin islands under the control of one of the powers, ami as Germany has the largest p.-o|«Tty in teresU there that it would be IwKt to iihu-o it imder I lorinan cemtr. .1 ami power. That was now the (mint In controversy. As to the n«ws|Ki(H i' correspondent. Klein, w ho has been playing knight errant there, the government of the United States was hi no way responsible for him. The statemcni of the man himself, although somewhat vain glorious in style, shows that he had. nothing to do wltli the attack on the German sailors.
