heightened Saturday when the emperor
Earned that Viscount Hayashi. foreign

to protest against Japan's attitude to
ward Korea.
This latest Intrigue, following a \
year's hostile obstruction to the work
of. Marquis Ito, the Japanese resident
g-eneral, has awakened the Korean
throne more than anything that has oc
curred since the murder of the queen
The silence of Marquis Ito pending
the action of the Tokio government
has demoralized the court and cabinet.
The latter for three: days thought that
the emperor would eend a representa
tive to Tokio for the purpose of deny
ing the emperor's responsibility In
Bending a delegation to The" Hague,
but July 9 the emperor stopped all
communications to him and retired to
a secluded country place, where lie re
majns quiet and unaware of the na
tion's predicament.

leader for whom Marquis Ito interceded
and who was. brought back to Korea,
Prince Yl Chung Yong, another exile.
has been waiting at Fusan since la6t
Sunday. He is a . pretender to the!
throne, which has now. four candidates.
In addition to' all this, the throne is
also thought by some to be threatened
by the Influence of foreign precedents
by which offending sovereigns under
protectorates are removed, in view of
the emperor's continued resistance to
Japanese pressurcwindicated in his
consistent support of The jtxague depu
tation Question.

mittee, a meeting between President
S. J. Small and United States Labor
Commissioner Neill and a . meeting be
tween , the strike committee and 7 the
national officials; of the union yester
day, nd tangible' result w-aa announced
In the strike controversy. All - that
was given out as the outcome of this
great activity was the fact that Presi
dent Small will go, to Chicago today.
The members of local No. 34 are'in
the dark as to what took place at the
secret meetings of their officers with
Commissioner NellL and do not know
what stage has been reached In the
struggle for terms with the compa
nies. v
The fact that the long looked for
carload of strike breakers was finally
on its way west to relieve the over
worked operators who have remained
with the company became known yes
terday, a telegram to the president
of the commercial telegraphers was re
ceived. It read as follows:

A committee from local 34 will meet
the train on its arrival in Oakland and
will present its claims in an effort to
induce the operators to Join the union
or return to the east
President Small did .not definitely
state that it was his intention to call a
general strike or to extend the strike
to other cities, but his action In leav
ing the local field at the present time
Ie regarded tas significant. The im
pression is strong . among the union
operators that . his mission to Chicago
is to call a general strike. There will
be much feeling of. disappointment if
not -actual resentment if the local Is
not atdecr materially and at once In Its
The president deputized A. W. Copps,
the secretary of the local .union, as. his
representative In handling the strike
during his absence. A general Etrlko
committee was also appointed. After
Informing the members of the local
union that he Intended to return to the
east. President Small said:
"If I go back to continue the strug
gle our demands In many cases will be
Increased. If -I am compelled to call
out Chicago, the requests of the men.
will be much Btiffer than those pre
sented here, but those new demands
will cover the entire, country."
Before 'going to the meeting of the
union Small held \a. brief conference
with United States Commissioner. Neill
at the Hotel Metropole, but what the
subject of this discussion was neither
would state.
It was x reported that S. J. Konen
kamp. M. J. Reidy and M. J. Sulljyan,
the members of the national executive
committee, would return east .with. the,
national president, but this was posi
tively denied. Konenkamp said:
"We shall not return east with
President Small, but, on the contrary,
shall in all probability remain in this
city until the strike is finally settled.'
"What the - action of President Small
will be when he leaves Oakland I am
unable to say. but we still hope that
the present trouble may be peaceably
settled without an extension of the
strike. That Is all that lam at liberty
to say at the present time."
Labor Commissioner Neill declared
that he would remain in this city for
at least two days more in the hope of
aiding to effect a settlement.

each, thei maximum . pay being $132.48.
the minimum: $94.90." The average pay
an hour worked was <6.7 cents. .

average of ?84.95, their average ": pay
being within a fraction of 34 cents an
hour. ' J
"Day men work nine hours, night men

duce a resolution adopted by that union
asking | the j international body to pass

fense - fund -of , half a million dollars

union has a strong team and the fans
are anticipating a close game.
, Steps are being taken r in St. Louis,
Mo.; to establish a tribunal for the
settlement of differences that may arise
between employers and employes with
the . idea that such a tribunal can \u25a0 and
will prevent. strikes and the disruption
of Industrial peace. , It is also proposed
to establish a branch of the- national
civic federation in 'that city to which
can be - referred disputes of the more
serious nature. Leo Landau; one of the
most \u25a0 prominent movers in the matter,
said Jas^, week: \u25a0
"It is better for both employer, and
employe' to. make concessions before
hostilities . begin than to . fight several
weeks or months only to find, that con
cessions must be made in the end. If
St. Louis had a voluntary board of con
ciliation; and -arbitration, made 'up of
men whose names are synonymous with
fairness. lam sure that'no employer
would care to refuse, the services of
such *a- board. If an '.employer would
refuse he -would have to run the riak
of : public censure. The .; skme applies
to employes, and no man or set of men
can .long -withstand public - opinion.
Such a plan will not eradicate 'disputes
•r strikes by any means, but it will
reduce them to a minimum, and be
beneficial to employer, employe and the
public,' and I " Intend to take the matter
up .with .the civic ; federation.*!.
