By Associated Press.
CHICAGO, July 4.— Nine men threat
en to tie up the shipping interests of
this port and It is said that unless they
can be pacified within forty-eight hours
it is probable that not a single vessel
may ba able to move out of the Chi
cago river.
This will be due to the fact that It
may become impossible to swing many
of the bridges that are operated by
electricity. The nine men are members
of the Electrical Workers' union. Their
pay has been cut.
• Business Agent Charles Bloomfleld
of the Electrical Workers' union served
notice on the city that the time had
expired wherein his organization In
sisted that the old rule of double time
for overtime should be recognized, and
the communication which went to the
city gave notice that unless the old
rule was immediately restored every
electrician employed by the city would
quit work.

tricians, but those who take care of
the lighting plants will quit, thus plac
ing the city In darkness.
Prior to January 1 of this year the
men were paid double time for over
time. After that time the officials cut

Los Angeles Business
Man Causes Arrest
in Kentucky
Bulk of His Insurance
Money iQuickly
Edward Bruns Unable to Persuade
Fair Charmer to Refund Cash,
and Asks New Orleans Po.
lice to Interfere
Dispatches from New Orleans to The
Herald tell of the plight of Edward
Bruns, a Los Angeles business man
there, aftor trusting his money to a
female traveling companion and after
wards regretting It— so much so that he
asked the police to detain the woman.
Other dispatches from Louisville, Ky.,
say that on the Instructions of the New
Orleans chief a woman giving the name
ol' Susie Gilbert was arrested there In
order to give an explanation of her
rights to $3600 which Bruns said she
was withholding from him.
Bruns recently owned an art glass
plant In Los- Angeles, but it burned
down. The money he carried with him
cmhraced the Insurance money, said to
aggregate $5000.
Go to Old Mexico
The woman, known as Susie Gilbert,
is said to be a widow from Lexington,
Ky., whom Bruns had interested in a
proposed business enterprise In Mexico.
He spent four months in the republic,
theft made his way to New Orleans, a*
did the woman.
Bruns' story to the police is that he
entrusted $3600 to the woman and kept
$2400 himself. The woman carried the
money in a belt around her waist.
Recently mistrusting her purposes he
says he began to grow suspicious and
asked for the return of the funds. She
delayed by means of various excuses.
Last Saturday she left ostensibly to
go to a drug store and that is the last
he saw of her. '■;...
After telling his story of simple trust
in human nature Bruns Bdded, "And I
did love her."
He found a note saying that the wo
man was going back to Los Angeles,
but his own theory was that she would
return to Kentucky. ■ ■
First Wife Threatens
If Bruns returns here he is likely to
face further troubles as his divorced
wife claims that he has not carried out
the court's order lately In paying her a
monthly sum for the support of her
self and two children. She Is nbw
thrown on her own resources to make
a livelihood.
Last November the wife got the di
vorce on her allegations of cruelty and
drinking and was awarded alimony of
$76 a month, which Included medical
services for their daughter, who Is a
nervous child. He kept up the pay
ments it is alleged until April 1, which
Is about the time he made his trip to
old Mexico. v; v
When Mrs. Bruns heard of the New
Orleans and Louisville dispatches she
remarked that she knew of her hus
band's - friendliness for a Lexington,
Ky., woman, but the^name mentioned
In the dispatches was not the one she
(Mrs. Bruns^ knew her by.
"He might have secured a marriage
license in Mexico, but he could get none
here. ■
"I feel that my former husband Is not
worthy of my sympathy since he might
have .used some of that' Insurance
money on: his two children."

Proposition to Subsidize Publication
Indorsed by a Number

Quite a stir was created at yesterday's
session of the Zionist convention by
the Introduction of a resolution In
dorsing and giving support financially
to the "Yiddlsher Kaemper," ok "The
Jew Militant," the organ of the radical
element In the Zionist movement.
A feature of the discussion elicited by
this resolution was Its support by a
number of rabbis on the ground that
It was helping to bring many Jews who
had drifted Into socialism back !to
Judaism. Nevertheless, considerable
6ppositlon was manifested and In order
to prevent anw acrlmonous discussion
the' resolution was withdrawn.
The purpose of the resolution, how

So-Called Inferior Races Should Be Led to a More

Stimulating Self-Development, Great
Commoner Tells American Society
By Associated Press,
LONDON. July i.~ Wllllnm J. Brynn
was the central figure at the annual In
dependence dny dinner of the American
society at the Hotel Oerli tonight.
Nearly five hundred members and
guests surrounded the society's board
and cheered the patriotic sentiments
with the peculiar zest born of exile. ■
Ambassador Whitelaw Reid and Mr.
Bryan engaged In Borne sharp but good
natured rnillery and banter over politi
cal differences, the crowd evincing Its
enjoyment of the sport with cheers and
shouts of laughter.
Mr. Reid, In responding to Sir W. B.
Richmond's proposal of his health, said
with reference to Mr. Bryan:
"At home, as a citizen, I have openly
and squarely opposed him at every
stage of his conspicuous career. I am
reasonably sure that when I return
I shall continue to do the same.
"I believe he tonight Is as. well satis
fied as I am, though by different reason
ing, that the country we both love and
try to serve has not been ruined by Its
gold abroad. -
"A Typical American"
"As the official representative of the
American people without distinction as
to party, I am glad to welcome him as
a typical American, whose whole life
has been lived in the daylight, and
whom the great host of my countrymen
have long trusted and honored."
Mr. Bryan, rising amid laughter and
cheers, said:
"The temptation to make a political
speech Is strong within me. I have not
had a chance to do so for ten months.
However, I will restrain myself.
."With reference to the ambassador's
remarks on gold I wish to say that
when I see the progress my country has
made walking on one leg I wonder what
It would have done walking on two
legs. ' ■■'-.. -■..■. .
' Silt is pleasing to testify that the am
b'assadoY not ! only ' has 1 ' fought" me but
that he has done It well. No American
rejoices more than I that he is three
thousand miles from his base. While
abroad I have met many good Republi
cans—holding office— and I only wish
there were enough offices abroad to take
all the Republicans out of the country."
Toast the Rulers
Chairman W. Jones proposed the
health of King Edward and Hayward
Greenwood, president of the Canadian
society and member of parliament for
the city of York, proposed the health of
President Roosevelt.
When they arose to drink to the toasts
the crowd discovered Mrs. Nicholas
Longworth in the gallery and Sheered
and drank her health.
Following the passage between Amer
ican Ambassador Reid and Mr. Bryan
the latter read his formal speech.
Why Self-Congratulatory
The subject of Mr. Bryan's address
was "The White Man's Burden." He
"The memory of the evening spent
with the American society Thanksgiv
ing day two and a half years ago is
such a pleasant one that I esteem my
self fortunate to be able to accept the
invitation extended by our distinguished
ambassador, Hon. Whitelaw Reid, to be
your guest on this occasion.
"Our English friends, under whose
flag we meet tonight, recalling that this
is the anniversary of our nation's birth,
would doubtless pardon us If our re
joicing contained something of self
congratulation, for It is at such times
as this that we are wont to review those
national achievements which have given
to the United States its prominence
among the nations.
"But I hope I shall not be thought
lacking In patriotic spirit if, Instead of
drawing a picture of the past, bright
with heroic deeds and unparalleled In
progress, 1 summon you rather to a
serious consideration of the responsl-.
blllty resting upon those nations which
aspire to premiership.
Interests Britons, Too
"This line of thought is suggested by
a sense of propriety as well as by re
cent experiences— by a sense of pro
priety because such a subject will In
terest the Briton as well as the Ameri
can, and by recent experiences because
they have Impressed me not less with
our national duty than with the supe
riority of western over eastern civiliza
tion. .
"Asking your attention to . such a
theme It Is not unfitting to adopt a
phrase coined by a poet to whom
America as well as England can lay
some claim, and take for my text "The
White Man's Burden."
"Takp up the White Man's burden-
In patience to abide,
To veil the threat of terror
And check the show of pride.
By open speech and simple.
An hundred times made plain,.
To seek another's pront,
And work another's gain."
"Thus sings Kipling and, with the ex
ception of the third line (of the meaning
of which I am not sure) the stanza em
bodies the thought which is uppermost
In my mind tonight.
A Favored Position
"No one can travel among the dark-
HkiniHHl races of the orient without
feeling that the white man occupies an
especially favored position among the
children of men, and the recognition of
this fact la accompanied by the con
viction that there is a duty inseparably
connected with the advantages en-
"There la a white man's burden— a
burden which the white man should not
ehlik even If he would. . r,J<ftf*
"That no one ltveth unto hinißelf or
dieth unto himself has a national as
well as an individual application. Our
destinies are bo interwoven that each
exerts an influence' directly or indirectly
upon all others.
"Sometimes this Influence Is uncon
sciously exerted, as when, for instance,
the good or bad precedent set 'by one
nation In dealing with Its own affairs
Is followed by some other nation.
"Sometimes the influence Is inciden
tally exerted, as when, for example, a
nation In the extension of Its commerce
introduces its language and enlarges
the horizon of the people with whom It
The Mother Tongue
"This incidental benefit conferred by
the opening of new markets must be ap
parent to any one who has watched the
stimulating Influence of the new ideas
which have been introduced Into Asia
and Africa through the medium of the
English language.
"This is not the mother tongue of very
many of the world's leaders In religion,
statesmanship, science and literature,
but It has received through translation
the best that has been written and
spoken In other countries.
"He who learns this language, there
fore, Is like one who lives upon a great
highway where ho comes Into daily
contact with the world.
"Without disparaging other modern
languages it may be said with truth
that- whether one travels abroad or
studies at home there is no other
language so useful at the present time
as that which we employ at this ban
quet board, and the nation which is in
strumental In spreading this language
confers an inestimable boon, even
though the conferring of It be not In
cluded in its general purpose.
Helpful to Orient
"England has rendered this service
to the people of India and the United
States, is rendering the .same service to
the people of the Philippines, while
both England and the United States
have been helpful to Japan and China
In this way.
"But the advanced nations cannot
content themselves with the conferring
of Incidental benefits. If they would
Justify their leadership they must put
forth conscientious and constant effort
for the promotion of the welfare of the
nations which lag behind. . .
.."Incidental benefits may follow,- even
though the real purpose of a nation Is
a wholly selflsh'one, for as the sale of
Joseph into Egypt resulted in blessings
to. his family and to the land of, the
Pharaohs, . so captives taken In war
have sometimes spread civilization and
blacks carried awny Into slavery have
been improved by contact with the
whites. But nations cannot afford to.do
evil in the hope that Providence will
transmute the evil into good and bring
blessings out of sin.
Nations' Duties
"Nations, if they would be great in
the better sense of the term, must In
tend benefit as well as confer it; they
must plan advantage, and not leave the
results to chance.
"I take it for granted that our duty
to' the so-called Inferior races is not
discharged by merely feeding them In
times of famine or by contributing to
their temporary support when some
other calamity overtakes them. A much
greater assistance Is gendered them
when they are led to a more elevated
plane of thought and activity by ideals
which stimulate them to self-develop
"The improvement of the people
themselves should be the paramount ob
ject in all intercourse with the orient.
"Among the blessings which the
Christian nations are at this time able
— and in duty bound — to carry to the
rest of the world, I may mention five:
education, knowledge of the science of
government, arbitration as a substitute
for war, appreciation of the dignity of
labor and a high conception of life.
Education Test
• "Education comes first, and in noth
ing have the United States and England
been more clearly helpful than In the
advocacy of universal education.
"If the designs of God are disclosed
by his handiwork, then the creation of
the human mind Is indubitable proof
that the Almighty never Intended that
learning should be monopolized by a
few, and ho arrays himself against the
plans of Jehovah who would deny intel
lectual training to any part of the hu
man race.
"It Is a false civilization, not a true
one, that countenances the permanent
separation of society Into the distinct
classes, the one encouraged to improve
the mind and the other condemned to
hopeless Ignorance.
"Equally false Is that conception of
International politics which would make
the prosperity of one nation depend up
on the exploitation of another.
"While no one Is far sighted enough
to estimate with accuracy the remote,
or even the Immediate, consequences of
human action yet as we can rely upon
the principle that each Individual
profits rather than loses by the pro
gress and prosperity of his neighbors,
so we cannot doubt that it is to the
advantage of each nation that every
other nation shall make the largest
possible use of its own resources and
the capabilities of its people.
Japan's Influence
"No one questions that Japan's! In
fluence has been a beneficent one since
she has emerged from illiteracy and
endowed her people with public schools
open to all her boys and girls.
"The transition from a position of ob
scurity Into a world power was scarcely
more rapid than her transition from' a
menace into an ally.
"China is entering upon a similar ex
perience and I am confident that her
era of reform will make her, not a yel
low peril, but a powerful co-laborer In
the international vineyard.
"In India, the Philippines, in Egypt
and even in Turkey statistics Bhow a

trust I will be pardoned if I say that
neither the armies nor the navies, nor
yet the commerce of our nations, have
