The UiniilicrH Incrcnkc WnKf" Km m S to 20 l'cr Cent WilernMon Mfii mill KnlKlit of Labor to Work Mill- liy Milo Overtime nnil Suniltiy VorIcAliol tubed Six Half l!llilan The differences 'which have existed be tween the brewery workers and the rro prlctors cf the local breweries lor two years or more were amicably settled yes terday. The agreement reached fixes ten hours as a day's work In the local brew eries and stipulates that the wages of the employes shall be Increased from 5 to 20 per cent, according to the nature of the labor performed by the employe. The prime movers In the settlement of the differences were Samuel Gompers, Vrcsldcnt of the American Federation of Vbor, and Charles F. Bechtold, Secretary Jf the National Union of Brewery Work in. The local brewery workers were represented at the conferences which have been held looking to a settlement of tte matter by Mllford Spohn, X. a Sprague, and Samuel Ingle, of the Central Labor Union, the local central body affiliated with the American Federation of Labor, and Alexander IL Bell, Leon Tobriner, and, Henry P- Woodward, attorneys, respect ively for tho Capital Brewing Company, Jleurlch's Brewing Company, and the Washington Brewing Company. Tho understanding with the Consumers' Company was reached several days ago. Two conferences were held with the rep resentatives of the Heurlcb and National Capital companies. The first of these con ferences was held from i until 7 o'clock .on Wednesday and another from 8:30 a. m. till 4 p. m. Thursday. Every matter in dispute was amicably adjusted and or ganized labor is well satisfied with the re sult The agreement, besides providing for in crease In wages, abolishes overtime and Sunday work, excepting in emergency cases. When overtime and Sunday woric Is demanded. It is to be paid for at the rale of time and a half. The brewery workers are to have half holidays on July 4, Decoration Day, Christmas, New Year's Day, and Thanksgiving, and all of Labor Day shall be a holiday. Two matters have been the stumbling block to the agreement up to this time and the unions gave way concerning them yes terday. Tho principal of these difficulties was that somo of the brewery workers aro not members of the union. The breweries Insisted that It v.ould be unfair to compel the men now working for them to Join the cnlon If they do not desire to. and that co the other hand it would be out of the Bargain Saturday e "Smoke Sale," $1.65.

Tho question was finally decided in favor of the breweries. They bind themselves, however, not to employ an- non-union men in the future. All vacancies are to be filled by union employes. Another circumstance which has caused much trouble in tie arriving at an amicable settlement between the representatives of the American Federation of Labor and the brewery proprietors is the fact that some of the employes of the breweries are affil iated with the Knights of Labor, in enter ing into an agreement, however, the brew ery owners refused to discriminate against the Knights of Labor and stipulated that union men, no matter whether affiliated with the Knighs of Labor or with the American Federation of Labor, would be treated alike. There will bo no pressure used to compel the employes at any of the breweries to connect themselves with any labor organi zation and their refusal to do so w 111 not be considered as a Just cause for their dis charge. NEITHEB, CONCEDES ANYTHING. The Strlkei-K nnd ContrnctorN Hold n I'ruItlexH Conference. There was no change yesterday in the situation with regard to the electrical workers' strike. It was expected that a settlement of the differences would be reached last night, but in this the strikers and the contractors were alike disappoint ed. During the day the members of the un ion held two mecUngs at their headquar ters, 1204 Pennsylvania Avenue. Reports were received from the different commit tees delegated by the union to watch the progress of the work by the contractors, and also to note the arrival of electrical workers from other cities. The reports, especially In reference to the coming of both union and non-union men frpm other cities, were to the effect that very few had been seen. Of tho union men who came, all, when they learned the condition of affairs, refused to work for the local con tractors, while the non-union men were either persuaded to Join the local union or to return whence they came. A conference, composed of representa tives from the Central Labor Union, Elec trical Workers' Union, and many of the large contractors for electrical work was held last night at the office of tho Na tional Electrical Supply Company, in New York Avenue. The labor representatives were Sillford Spohn. W. J. Feeny, E. A. JIalo.nc. John G. Wolf, N. C. Sprague, and E. Wolf. The contractors who participat ed in the conference were J. It. Galloway, John Bau, Hill & Miller, C. Schneider's Sons, Jir. Leonard, for J. H. Kcely, Tal mage & Wilson, and others. The con sultation began at S o'clock and continued fcr three hours. Nothing was accomplish ed. Proposition after proposition. It is said, was submitted by each Bide, but all were rejected as promptly as announced. Neither side. It Is said, would grant any concessions nor deviate, except In the mat ter of details, from the demands originally made by both the workmen and the con tractors.

Selfrldge, of San Tranclsco, has been given a cadetship at the West Foint Military Academy. Ho is the son of Lieutenant Commander J. K. Selfrldge, and the fourth of a direct line of Selfridges to enter tho fighting branch of the Gov ernment service. His grandfather, Thomas O. Selfrldge, Jr., Is a rear admiral, retired, as Is also his great grandfather, Thomas O. Selfrldge, both of whom reside in this city. The family has quite a fighting rec ord. Rear Admiral Selfrldge, the elder, Is ninety-five years old. Tho great grandson, like the other Selfridges, wa3 exceedingly anxious to enter the Navy, and about two years ago sought to enter the Naval Acad emy from California. Tho opportunity did not offer itself, but being- determined to enter eomo branch of the fighting service of tho country, he decided to follow the other alternative and endeavored to enter West Point. The President has finally recognized the oung aspirant and given him an appoint ment In the great military school. Thero will soon be four generations of the Sel frldge family on tho pay rolls of the coun try, something that no other American family can boast of. No other family has ever had father and son among the retired rear admirals at the same time. The elder admiral saw active service for over forty-eight years, having entered the Navy January 1, ISIS, as a midshipman. He cruised around the world, was In the Mediterranean In 1S22. His first smack of war came In 1817, during the Mexican War, when he helped to cap ture Mazatlan and Guavraas. Ho was se riously wounded and had to return home In 1S48. He was placed In charge of the Boston navy jard and remained in com mand until 1SC1. At the opening of the Civil War he was assigned to the steam frigato Mississippi In the Gulf Squadron. His old wound began to cause him trouble again and bo was assigned to the Mare Island navy yard as commandant. He was retired on his birthday, April 21, 1S6C, on account of his age. The son has even been more active than the father. He graduated with highest honors at the Naval Academy in 1854, and became a lieutenant In 18C0. He was on the Cumberland when the Merrlmac ram med and sunk her In Hampton Roads, and after the wounding of Admiral Worden, during the fight between the Monitor and Merrlmac, he was placed In command of the Monitor. He was on the ironclad Cairo when tho Confederates blew her up on the Mississippi River. After the war ho was detailed to survey routes across the Isth mus of Darlen In connection with tho Panama and Nlcaraguan Canal scheme.

Indian Police l'umnlnjr i Hand of Warlike Monx. Pino Ridge, S. D., July 14. Fifty Indian police from thl3 agency were today start ed In pursuit of Swift Bear and his band of warlike Sioux, who seem determined to start an incipient Indian war. This is the band that yesterday defied Sheriff Deta ining and his posse on Buck Creek to ar rest them for killing game out of season, and declared they would start a war In which all the Sioux nation would engage unless left to themselves. Tho sheriff, knowing the determined spirit of this band, retreated and called for re-enforcements. Several hundred police are In hot pur suit of the Indians, who are retreating Into the Ruby Basin country of Wyoming. The Pine Ridge officials believe there is real danger of an outbreak. These Indians have been slaughtering big game In great quantities recently. Amos Demmlng, deputy sheriff of Con verse county, and posse left Lusk on Wednesday with warrants for the arrest of the Indians, and overtook them at Buck Creek Thursday morning. Att'er reading the warrants the Indians refused to go with the sheriff, drew a line, and told him that if he crossed it there would be war. They backed up their assertion by a dis play of Winchesters. Being outnumbered, the sheriff went to Edgemont to get help and-papers for the arrest of the Indians in South Dakota, ar they crossed the line. Deputy Sheriff George Miller, of Edgemont, will go out with them in the morning with an Incres. cd force. Sheriff Demmlng telegraphed th Indian agent at Pine Ridge to have a force of Indian police to go out to intercept the Indians if they got away from Edgemont It is expected they will be overtaken somowhere near the agency a3 they crossed Cotton Wood creek, near Edgemont, this afternoon, and are traveling as fast as they possibly can.
