UNIONS READY TD ARBITRATE Want Peaceful Settle ment of the Wabash Trouble. 8T. LOUIS. March 20.— Arguments in the AVabash injunction suit were con cluded this afternoon and the case was \ taken under advisement by Judge' Adams. He gave no Intlmatlun of how much time mlsht be required to prepare liis opinion, but the attorneys declarci after the adjournment of court that they would look for a decision In about a week or ten days. Attached to one of the. affidavits made by President Ramsey o£> the Wahas'.i Railroad and submitted to the court was a stenographic report of a meeting be tween President Ramsey and the griev ance committee representing the two brotherhoods. In this report J. R. Courtney of the committee Is quoted as having said to President Ramsey that tho men would be willing to arbitrate but would not allow tl.o company to select any of the arbitra tors. This afternoon Judge Priest, who mside the linal argument for the company, al luCed to the reported statements of Courtney and declared that tho railway company had been willing to arbitrate. Grand Master Hannahan of the firemen, who wait seated behind F. N. Judson, the chief counsel for the defendants, leaned quickly . forward and spoke a few wovds to the attorney, who at once interrupted Judge Priests argument. "Are you willing to settle' this thing In thnt manner?" Judson asked. "I am here to answer the argumtrt made by*, the gentlemen. '* said Judge Priest. "I have no authority to speak either for Mr. Ramsey or for the Wabush Railroad upon such a question." Instantly Judson was on his feet. "I wish to fay." he said, "Speaking for both the trainmen and the firemen, that we are willing to accept the arbitration of the tribunal provided for under the act of Congress." "The gentleman's afterthought ig better, than his forethought," retorted Judge Priest, and he resumed his argument. Grand Master Morrissey of th« train men was not in court this afternoon, but Grand Master Hannahan of the firemen .Bald: 'Vv&: • ' "We are willing to do as Mr. Judsoft said. In fact, I told him to say it. Mr. Morrissey agrees with my position in the matter." President Ramsey is now in Netv York, but Colonel Blodgett, chief counsel for thA Wabash, eald: "I ' hardly think ' President Ramsey would care to say anything. The men re fused to arbitrate when he offered It." MADRID.

Special Cable to The Call and New York Herald. Copyright. 1003. by the New York Herald Publishing Company. BERLIN, March 20.— Leading Gov ernment journals are cautious in referring to the attack upon Baron von Sternberg. German Minister to the United States, by Professor Ilanse of the Leipsic University In the Reichstag yesterday, but the press in general carf not conceal its delight over the rebuke to the Government for seemingly permit ting itself to be worsted in the Vene zuelan embroglio. All of the leading newspapers refer to the Incident editori ally, and several of them criticise Von Sternberg for what they regard as his too ready acquiescence in the term* pro posed by Mr. Bowen for the settlement of the Venezuelan dispute. The newspapers also rejoice over Count von Bulow's violent attack upon certain American newspapers, which accredited to Baron von Sternberg the statement that Prince Bismarck was antiquated in his ideas. Count von Bulow evidently struck a popular note in arraigning th<?se journals. Thfl dlpcnssion of German- American relations was . resumed in the Reichstag to-day. All of the leading journals make more or lesa laudatory comments on Count von Bulow's references to the Dreibund and the Macedonian issue and the Anglo-Ger man alliance against Venezuela. Count von Bulow has doubtless added to his popularity by his speech, which ap pealed particularly to anti-American sen timents.

Woman and Friends Make Positive Identification of Hat. Inquest This Morning Will Show Manner of His Death in Waters of the That Daniel p. Kearney, salesman for the Brooks-Follls Electric Company, plunged from the ferry-boat Berkeley Into the waters of the bay on the morning of. January 23 has been established. That he premeditated the act, flrsi plying himself with liquor that his nerve should not fail him, is also a certainty. He had ¦ ca^t his lot with a woman and when the day of estrangement approached life became too thorny a path for him to tread. The story of Kearney's career and death will be told at an inquest this morntns- His flirtations and serious love affairs will be testified to by witnesses and by hand writing, and the print of scandal and_ unrequitted affection will be upon it all. How he went to his watery grave, smarting under the frown of one woman, while in his pocket were all the tender epistles of another, who showered a guilty love upon him, will furnish no lit tle end of the sensation in a case that has been dragging before the public eye for days because of the lack of sagacity on the part of the folice in solving a primer problem in detective work. A wronged husband will face a jury to expel all suggestions of foul play that have, for ' an unknown, reason, seeped Into the case. Then facts one by one will be presented to show the manner of the unfortunate salesman's death and the care with which he. planned and accom plished It. One witness, and an impor ' tant one, may be missing. The woman, of whom the police knew nothing until informed by the publication of facts by | The Call, may be absent because of the Inability of the -detectives to locate her. Her testimony alone is required to ex plain Just what drove Kearney to sui ; clde and to reveal what happened during the last hours of his life which were spent I In her company. UNWILLING WITNESSES. There may : be some unwilling witnesses brought before the Coroner. A determi nation of some persons to hinder every effort that has been made to bring the case to a solution has been most pro nounced. Men who are acquainted with all the details of the deed persist not only in remaining silent but have evaded issues and made misleading statements that some one might be protected. Dur ing the investigation which The Call be gan two days ago such persons have been found, and whether or not they will squirm under the pressure of the law and tell the truth when the solemn obli gations of an cath has been put to them remains to be seen. The danger of the revelation of the woman's name appears to have caused much anxiety, especially on the part of Kearney's associates and friends. Charles Thelen, who was one of the dead man's chums, and who was the first to probe into the manner of his death and arrive at a conclusion, seaU his lips and denies admissions that he at one time made. Thelen's energy extended so far that he caused Zenus O. Pratt of the Pratt Elec tric Company at 1239 Sanchez street to accompany Kearney's lady friend to Oak land £oon after the drowning and identify the hat. Yet at first he refused to give the "woman's name, and later said that he had never heard of her at all. Pratt Is at present In Honolulu, whither he went to install electric appliances In a new ho tel beinp built by the Von Hume- Young Company. Employes of the Southern Pacific Com pany told yeeterday of the identification of the hat by the woman. P. H. Maloney and G.. B. Furniss rtlate how she and Pratt went to the Oakland mole shortly after the drowning smd the former named Kearney as the owner of the hat which was picked up by the captain of the Berkeley. T-he woman, as- they describe her, had the appearances of one of the unfortunate creatures of her sex, a little over an average height; slender, small faced, with dark eyes and blonde hair. IRONED THE HAT. Pratt did most of the talking. The girl ntated that on the night of January, 23 Kearney had visited her, and that she had sat on the hut, crushing it out of shape. Afterward she tried to repair the injury by ironing it out, but creases re mained, and by these creases ehe was able to make a positive identification. The detectfves then went to work. They secured the hat and took It to the em ployes of the electrical company, where it was Identified. The story of Kearney's movements on the morning of his death was all news to them, but they verified each statement made by The Call and subpenaed witnesses to appear at the In quest. Early In the morning Kearney left a nearby saloon and went to the place of business, where he took twenty-five tln3 of fuse wire, each weighing a pound, for the purpose of bearing his body down when he jumped into the bay. It was raining heavily at the time and he left a trail of water on the floor, by which his movements were traced. The detectives, to satisfy themselves, caused stock to be taken in the store yesterday and found that the twenty-five tins were missing. Only one tin waa found on the body. It is tho supposition .of the police that the other twenty-four tins were taken off the body before It was taken to the Morgue. The theory that. Kearney took the wire along as samples Is ridiculed by the members of the firm. It is a standard articlo and samples pf it aro never required. The gun metal watch, which has been mentioned as missing from the body, was given to the woman by Kearney, so he told some of his com panions previous to the day of his death. \Vh$re it is now is not known, but if it has not already been placed In the hands of his relatives it soon will be. CAUSE FOB RETICENCE. The- accident Insurance policy which might bo a cause for relatives being backward in bringing to light evidence o( suicide was Issued by John R. Foley of 407 Montgomery street for the Union Casualty and Security Company of St. Louis. It was for $3000 and was taken out for a. period of. one year from February 27, 1902. .Kearney died on January 23 of the present year, .a little more, than a menth before the policy expired. Had ac cident been proved as the cause of deith the full value would have been paid; had murder been given as the cause" of death the executors would have received 20 per cent of the JJOOO, but in the event of *ui clde the policy is null and void. Had Coroner Leland given a little of, the time and energy that he devotes to his Motherhood is woman's natural destJhy — actual barrenness is rare — comforting words to childless women. Many women arc denied the happiness of children simply because of some curable derangement of the generative organs. Amonc the many triumphs of Iijdia E.

There has been no claim on the part of interested persons that Kearney never reached Oakland.. He probably In tended to slip from the deck on the way over, but was deterred by the appearance of a friend who engaged him in conversa tion until the mole was reached. He hurried from tho deck with the crowds and was last seen walking in the direc tion of the Alameda train.. He did not beard the train," however, but returned on the boat and ended his life just as the vessel neared the slip in this city.
