ARBITRATION BOARD DEMANDED Traction Company Must Settle the Differences Between Themselves and Workmen, or Pay the Penalty of - Franchise Forfeiture Several . - Persons Injured. Western" Newspaper Union News Service. Ciro.innati. The emDloyes 'of the Cincinnati Traction Co. went out on ' strike Friday night. The street car system was completely tied up and no cars were run from Saturday after noon .until Monday. . Cincinnatians living on the hill tops and in the sub urbs were compelled to walk. ' Anto trucks, busses and all kinds of vehicles were pressed into servi le, tout were unable to handle the thou sands of people who desired to ride. The Traction Co. made efforts to get cars going but felt compelled because Of demonstrations and interference by crowds to return the cars to the barns. President Schoepf announced that another effort will be made to get the cars started. It is certain that there will be opposition to this move in some form or another. The organizer of the local union has announced to the men his desire that no violence ' shall be used, but that peaceful means shall prevail to prevent- the cars ' going out. ' A number of conductors and motor- men from other cities arrived here to -take the places of the strikers. It is regarded as almost certain that if the cars are not going to-day that an ap plication will be made to the Federal Courts for the appointment of a re ceiver to take charge of the property and conduct it for the benefit of the public. Mayor and Schoepf Confer. The Mayor . and President Schoepf held a conference at City Hall. There is a story that all was not as pleasant as it might have been between the two gentlemen. - The Mayor claims that there is plen ty of police protection for the cars to run while Mr. Schoepf claims he can not operate his property because of the act of violence. The ' traction officials were in their offices all d?y, during which time they considered every phase of the situa tion, including that of applying to the court for protection, a plan which at - this writing appears to be certain of consummation. Two Cars Are Burned. The two street cars which had been sent out on the John street line in charge of strikebreakers and deserted at Westwood avenue and Showell, v were set afire and one of thep prac tically ruined. The other one was badly damaged" oy the flames. The blaze was discovered by Officers Hays and Schaefer, of the Ninth dis trict, who had just left the station house. They inimediately hurried to the seem;, but ' before their arrival some one had pulled the alarm. The fire company and the officers arrived on the scene almost simultaneously "May Apply For a Receiver. i The application for the appointment of a receiver for the Cincinnati Tras tion Co. is . the alternative that the company must face unless it comes to time "in treating with its employes, A night conference was held by the Mayor and officials of the city govern ment for theone side and others of the Street Railway Men's organiza tion. - , The labor men put their proposition squarely up to the Mayor and stated that they were most willing to arbitra- tion should be the means to settle the ; difficulty. . . ' They presented in writing the mat ters that they deem to 'be at issue and what they are asking from the traction : officials. ' " ''"f : After 'a conference of some little time the Mayor determined to send another ultimatum to the Traction Co. officials. . ' v In this letter comes the statement that the courts will be appealed to and . under contingencies that a demand . for a receiver will "be made.' ' - . The Mayor is particularly impres sive in that part' of his letter which reads: "If your company will not agree -, to so proceed the city of Cincinnati will be forced . to apply to a court of competent Jurisdiction for the appoint ment of a. receiver, to operate your property and if necessary for a, for feiture of its franchise."

UNITED STATES EXPERTS CAN NOT INDORSE FRIEDMANN'S VACCINE. GIVES WARNING TO PATIENTS Physicians Declare Experiments So Far "Do Not Justify Confidence in Remedy Which Has Been, Inspired by Widespread Publicity." Washington, May 12. In the opin ion of the government surgeons who have been investigating the condition of patients . that were inoculated by Dr. Frederick F. Friedmann with his tuberculosis " vaccine: the observations do not justify that confidence in the remedy which has been inspired by the widespread publicity given the cure." This first official conclusion from the tests was announced here Satur day before the National Association for the Study and Prevention of Tu berculosis by Dr. John F. Anderson, director of the government's hygienic laboratory, and Dr. A. M. Stlmson. another public health - surgeon, . who were assigned . to observe the prog ress of the Friedmann patients at Mount Sinai hospital in New York. We believe that at the present time," says their report, "we are not in a position to express an opinion based on the conditions under obser vation. The disease for which the remedy is used is prolonged and is characterized by periods of advance ment and retrogression' It is also one In which psychic influences are a pow erful factor. Time is therefore neces sary to evaluate properly the effect of therapeutic measures. Without pre senting in detail the condition of pa tients under observation, 'we are in a position to state that the facts thus far observed do not justify that con fidence In the remedy which has been Inspired by widespread publicity. ... 'In our opinion harm may have been done by this undue publicity in so far as it' has lessened the confi dence of tubercular persons in well- recognized ' methods of treatment or interrupted their use, and we are con strained to advise against any lessen ing of those well-known ' -measures which not only had effected cures but which have reduced the Incidence of the disease. Tn our series of patients. Dr. Fried mann has almost exclusively made use of the Intramuscular method alone in pulmonary cases, and a very con siderable proportion of them have either developed no considerable in filtrate at all or have suffered from abscess formations. It is evident, therefore, that a very consideable por tion of these patients, may expect their treatment at the hand of Dr. Friedmann to extend over a long period. "Concerning the cultures submitted to us, we may state that, a series of experiments fa under way. The bacillus has been found to be an acid fast organism having having proper ties quite different from those of any tubercle bacillus with which we are acquainted. - "We requested Dr. Friedmann to furnish us with a large amount of this material for examination, but this he has declined to do. We can state, ' however, that living' acid fast bacteria are being Injected by the in stramuscular and intravenous meth od, although we are Ignorant of what medium they are suspended in or what additional substance or sub stances may be contained in the final mixture." LIMIT FOR GOTHAM GRAFTERS Four Former Inspectors to Prison for One Year and Must Pay ' $500 Each. r New York, May 10. Dennis Sweeny, John J. Martha; James E. Kutsey and James F.
