PHILADELPHIA, March 3.— The
first step toward settling the dif- |
ferences between the striking
streetcar men and \he Philadelphia
repid transit company under the au
thority of the courts, and thus pre
venting the impending sympathetic
>trlk«-, was taken tonight by the car
men. .
\u25a0An attorney representing the amal
gamated association of street and elec- \u25a0
trie railway employes wrote to Pres
ident Krueger of the Philadelphia rapid
•transit company, asking that he join
in application to the' courts under the
act. of 3593 for th© appointment of a
board of arbitration to decide between
.the strikers and the transit company.
A rpply is requested before noon to
"morrow.
Before the receipt of the communi
cation President Kruger was shown a
cupy of the law by representatives of
the united businessmen's association,
who asked him if the officials of the
company would abide by it. He re:
plied: "Certainly the company will sub-
Provides Arbitration
The act provides for a board of ar
bitration of nine persons, three of
whom chosen by each side and three
by the court. While a penalty is pro
vided for the punishment of any one
that refuses to testify before it, no .dis
tinct method is set forth for the en
forcement of its decree.
President Kruger would not say
whether he intended to make a reply
to the request of the carmen.
During a riot at Richmond and Bris
. tol streets tonight two cars on the
Bridgesburg side were badly damaged
by bricks and stones thrown by the
mob. Squads of police finally dispersed
the rioters.
The carpenters* and joiners' union,
with a membership of 5,000, voted to
night to strike tomorrow, at midnight
if the street car men have not reached
a setlexnent at that time.
Crowd Denied Admission
PHILADELPHIA. March 3.— For the
" first time in five years the citizens of
Philadaiphia were excluded from the
sessions of the select and common
councils this afternoon. A vast crowd
had gathered on the floor of the city
liall, but policemen kept all except the
oouncilmen, reporters and a few privi
leged persons outside the gallery that
leads to the council chambers.
The strike was practically ignored
by both bodies. A message from May
or' Reyburn reviewed the situation
\u25a0briefly and stated his policy of non
interference in these words:
'.""It is not the city's duty, nor yours
• nor. mfne. to interfere - between the
Philadelphia rapid transit company and
,Us employes. The courts of law are
Hvailable for the redress of any real
grievance which either may have. No
reason exists, nor can exist. Jn proper
cases, c why they and all other disput
ants should not submit their differences
lo the courts or adjust their disputes
between themselves.
Should Not Interfere
•"It is of the utmost importance, how
ever, for the good name of our city
and .for the safety of its citizens, that
no step should be taken by your hon
orable bodies or by any others which
would undo or in any way or manner
interfere with that which has already
been done or lead any person to be
lieve that he can, by the aid of the
machinery of the . executive or legis
lative branches pf the municipal gov
ernment, enforce any demand not cog
nizable in the courts or voluntarily ad
justable between the parties.
• *'Any attempt, however honest it may
be, which tends to draw away from the
parties themselves or from the judi
_c!ao'. the' determination, of disputes,
which under the. constitution and laws
• of the commonwealth are entrusted to
. them, necessarily weakens and impairs
our form of government, and in the
present case could but tend to prolong
the agitation. I confidently believe by
the continuance of present peaceful
conditions that full service by the com
pany will coon be restored. In bring
ing- about peace. and good order I rely
on the co-cperation and aid of the
councils and the support of all Jaw
abiding citizens."
.In Accord With Mayor.
That the councils were Jn entire ac
cord with the views of the mayor was
made evident by the absence of action
or discussion on the. crisis. .Several
petitions from businessmen's associa
tions and, from trade organizations
bearing on the strike were heard with
out ' comment. A resolution \u25a0 from the

cause Relative Married Die»
tator's Enemy
The Pacific Mail liner San Jose, which
arrived yesterday from Panama and
way ports, . brought the story of two
women who are prevented from return
ing "to Guatemala because the sister of
one. of them married the son of an
enemy of President Cabrera. The
women ar<> .Senora Prado and her
daughter, Carmencita.
Carmencita's sister \u25a0 married the son
of Cabrera's enemy. .The young couple
made their, home In Honduras. A few
months ago Carmencita accepted an
invitation to visit her .sister. When
she arrived at' PoVto Barrios in Guate
mala she was told that she would not
be allowed to land. Senor Prado is a
wealthy man and one of Guatemala's
prominent citizens. When his wife
learned that their daughter had' been
refused landing she .hastened to Hon
duras and mother. and daughter started
for .home together. They , took -the
steamer. Porto Cortez'. in Honduras and
landed at; Porto 'Barrios. ; There was
no train to Guatemala ' City until, the
next morning, so the.. women took rooms
for the night at-ahotel.
Late at night the comandante -dis
covered that they had landed. He sent
a squad of soldiers to the hotel, where
the women were taken from their beds
and compelled to "accompany the" sol
diers to the comandante's office. They
remained there until the next morning,
when the comandante communicated
with "President Cabrera, who ordered
that the women be sent back to the
steamer from which they had landed.
There was another steamer for Hon
duras due in a few hours, and Senora
Prado begged to be allowed to wait for
that. 3 Her petition was referred to
Cabrera, who promptly refused it.
When the soldiers forced the women
into a small boat the mother knelt and
begged them to shoot her, but - her
petition won only a prod from a bay
onet and 'an order to get up. Two of
Senora Prado's nephews are, said to
have been shot a few months ago by
Cabrera's order. • , -

BENEFIT FROM

David Starr Jordan, President of
Stanford University, to Re
tire in Six Years
Research Work, Probably the
Effect of War on Nations, to
Follow Resignation
[Special Dispatch lo The Call]
STANFORD UNIVERSITY, March 3.
President David Starr Jordan, who' has
been the administrative head of the
university since its foundation, an
nounced this afternoon his . intention
to resign and accept the benefits of the
Carnegie foundation for the advance
ment of learning, at the end of six
yearß from, the 'present time. »
The statement was made. at a meet
ing of the university conference, -and
President Jordan gave as his reason
for this. intended action his belief that
all. professors should resign, upon
reaching the age of 65.
President Jordan will act on his own
initiative in this > matter, though he
will carry out a policy favored by the
hoard of trustees of the university, who
made a request at the time of the es
tablishment .of the that
Stanford professors should be included
in the benefits*. This request was later
granted by the Carnegie board.
Doctor Jordan will,also be influenced
in his resignation by. the fact that he
has for many years desired to be able
to pursue research work, which his
duties as president have prevented. He
has not yet decided what line of work
he will take up after his retirement,
although he inclines to the study of
the biology of war, showing the effect
of war, directly and indirectly, on the
development of nations.

COMMITTEE TO INTERVIEW
MARINE HOSPITAL HEAD
INaddition to the investigation oc
conditions at the United State*
marine hospital already demanded
of the federal authorities by the a«so-»
ciated seamen's unions of the Pacilic
coast it. is probable that a criminal \u25a0>
charge will be tiled within the next
48 hours against Dr. D. Moore, the
member of the staff who is alleged to
have brutally beaten Mateo Brczzinio
20 minutes before the latter died on
the morning of February 17. The
matter of. deciding: in what jurisdic
tion the information should be nled-is *
now nnder consideration by the at*
torney of the maritime organization?;
and" it is* believed that a decision will
be reached today.
Evidence Given. Attorney .
-Following the securing of additional ,
affidavits setting forth what .H alleged
to have occurred in the hospital ward
preceding the death of Brezzinio there
was a conference of union officials
yesterday afternoon; Subsequently all ,
of the evidence secured was placed in,
the hands of Attorney W. H. Hutton,
a doubt having arisen as to whether
the information of the alleged crime
should be filed with the state or fed
eral prosecutor, the marine hospital
being located on a government reser
vation.
Additional evidence contradicting
the statement of Dr. James M. Gas
saway, commanding officer at the
! hospital, to the effect that the face o!
Brezzinio was not discolored after:
I death was secured the union of
, ticials yesterday from Anton Bebart,
and his brother, friends of the dead
: man. who claimed the body to prevent
; a hasty burial at the cemetery in the
' hospital grounds. Corroborative evi
dence bearing on the allegation that
Doctor Moore punched and cuffed Brez- •
zinio while the latter was writhing irt
pain, from the wound of an operation,
was set forth yesterday in an affidavit
sworn -to by Axel- .N'yman. a seaman
who occupied a cot in the ward on the
night of the occurrence.
Brutality Is Alleged
Nyman, who lives at $•>§ Alleera
street. Oakland, was confined in the)
