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

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

question to discharge the non-union men.
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

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.

Thomas E. 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.
The young man's father was on the dou
ble turreted monitor Puritan during the
Spanish War. That vessel engaged In the

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. The Indians have traveled
over sixty miles today, but their ponies aro
still going seemingly as fresh as ever, al
though the deputies are nearly exhausted.
The Indians went through the sheepherd
of N. S. Tubbs this afternoon and stole all
the herders' bedding and food.

Louisville, Ky., July 11. The man Wil
liams who yesterday surrendered himself
to the authorities at Cleveland, Mis3., say
ing that he was one of the assassins who
shot Dr. W. N. Alsop, refuses to discuss
the case further than to say that he had
cause to kill the physician.
The cause of the shooting of Dr. Alsop
dates back several ycar3 ago. Some years
ago Dr. Alsop was conversing with an old
man who conducted a grocery store near
Shaw. The son of a rich o!d planter, with
two companions, came into the store, and
after a quarrel with the old man assault
ed him. Dr. Alsop interfered and ad
ministered a severe chastising to the
young planter. The latter left the store,
swearing vengeance. Early next morning
he called on the doctor and Informed him
that one of the two "would eat breakfast
In hell." At this both drew their revolv
ers and opened fire. The shot bred by the
doctor struck his antagonist and killed
him instantly. At the trial which followed
tho physician was acquitted.
The young man's father said that ho
would yet be revenged, and yesterday's
killing resulted.
