WHAT THE MASTERS7 SAY Tbo Journeyman say No. Tbnt Only One Point of Ooiilttullon Was Het tied i\? the Meet in- '.Monday NIk>>i ?Blunter I'lnmbnra Mot Last Night ?Journeymen Will Meet To?Nlgbt tu Cuu?Klor Fnnber Action, It was supposed by many that the differences between the master plumb- | crs and Journeymen wouid 'be settled | by the meeting of the Joint Conference Committee on Monday night, and the ratification of their reports to the re? spective association. The minutes of the conference meet? ing of Monday night were presented to a special meeting of the Master Plumbers' Association last night at the ofllce of W. H. Barnard & Co., as fol? lows: Master Plumbers' Hall, Norfolk, Va., June 10, 1S99. Call meeting of the Conference Com? mittees of the Master and Journeymen Plumbers' Association, held this Mon? day evening. June 10. 1S99, with the following in nibers present: Messrs Poster. Barnard. Schmus and O'Conner, of the Master Plumbers' As? sociation, and Messrs. Person, Kelly, Thornton, Williams and Orr, repre? senting the Journeymen's Association. The meeting was called to order by Mr. Poster, and on motion, Mr. Poster was chosen as chairman, with Robert L. Orr as secretary. I'pon taking the chair the chairn-an stated that the._c.b Ject of the meeting was to try and set? tle the differences existing between the Master and Journeymen's Associations. Tho matter of Mr. George A. Graham being blacklisted was thoroughly dis? cussed by all members present: the Journeymen presenting Mr. Casey's letter as evidence to show that such a blacklist did exist. The master plumb? ers disclaimed the legality of Mr. Ca? rey's letter, claiming it to be a person? al letter. They also stated if the Jour? neymen thought it necessary, .they wottl I present tlie minutes, of their pro? ceedings to show that no blacklist ex? isted. Tills seemed satisfactory to all. Mr. Person, representing the commit tee from the journeymen's Association, stated that If Mr. Graham was offered or given employment in any shop which was previous to the strike recogniized as an union shop, that the strike would be declared off. So far as the Graham nffalr was co cerned, there being no further business, the meeting adjourned. ROBT. L, ORR, Secretary. Thereupon the Master Plumbers un? animously directed that the following letter be sent to Mr. Graham this morning: Mr. George Graham. Norfolk, Va.: Dear Sir?I am directed by the Mas tor Plumbers to notify you that in ac? cordance with the tirnnosilion made by your conference committee, which reads ns follows, "That :f Mr. Graham was offered or given employment in any shop whic h was previous to the strike recognized ps a uni->n shop, that the strike would be declared off." If you will call upon Messrs. Guy & Snyder they will cheerfully give you employment at once. We trust that the good will heretofore existing be? tween the nlumbers' union and the Master Plumbers' Association will con? tinues. Very respectfully, W. H. BARNARD. Acting Secretary. Wh"M interviewed last night at the close of the meeting the Master Plumb? ers stated, that from their standpoint, the .strike should be declared off this I morning. JOURNEYMEN SAY NO. After leaving the Master Plumbers the representative of the Virginian Pilot interviewed Mr. Graham and other members of the Journeymen's Associa? tion. They expressed surprise at the views of the Muster Plumbers and sa:d the strike Is not off and will not bo declared off. ns the Graham matter was only one point of the controversy. They state tlint their demands ns to scale, apprentices and helpers were to have received consideration by the Mnster Plumbers before the strike is declared off. When the minutes of the conference meeting were called to their attention, they declared that the Master Plumbers at the conference would not listen to anything but the Graham matter, hut agreed that they would consider the "tlier demands as to scale, apprentices and helpers at n special called meet? ing of the Master Plumbers. Sr. far ns can be s^en at present the strike is far from being settled, as the main demands have not boon officially noticed In any way by the Master Piumbers' Association. JOURNEYMEN MEET TO-NIGHT. Tt Is understood that the Journeymen will hold a meeting to-night at Brick? layers' Hall to discuss matters. 4 tilllherlrwKl ? Irerl Nltndsy Sein..

One of the boldest Jail deliveries ever accomplished In this section of Vir? ginia was made Tuesday night, when Ernest Stevenson and Frank Bell, two white men, and Thomas Mills, colored, made their escape from the handsome new jail at Hampton. Tho prisoners were Incarcerated In cells on the second Moor, which has a wall the thickness of seven bricks. Se? curing some old Iron bed springs they cut a hole through the building large enough for their bodies to pass through with ease, and it is thought they must have used a rope to slide down to the ground, a distance of twenty feet. It is not known by the Jailor what time they began their work, but It must have been begun early In the night. The hole In the wall was discovered by some of tho prisoners yesterday morning, who at once gave the alarm. Sheriff Curtis and several of the ofli cers started out In pursuit of the es? caped prisoners, but up to late yester? day afternoon nothing had been heard of them. The two white men were charged with vagrancy, and It was understood that they are wanted by the Washing? ton authorities. Mills was serving a term of ninety days for a misdemeanor. This makes five prisoners who have escaped from the jail in the past two weeks, but two have been recaptured. INJUNCTION SERVED. JUDGE WADDILL TAKES HAND IN STREET RAILWAY WAR. United States Marshal Morgan Treat has served notice on officers of the Chesapeake and Hampton'Roads rail? way of an Injunction granted by Judge WHddlll. of tho United States District Court, on behalf of the Newport News and Old Point Railway and Electric Company, restraining the defendants from constructing a street railway on the government reservation at Old Point.

There has hr-n much speculation In general buslt, :s., and railway circles as to who will be glveti the very Im? portant p.jeltlon of local manager of the consolidated plants of the Norfolk and Ocean View Railway Company and the Virginia Electric Company.

Knnes only, 324 Slain street, corner Talbot. 1 lie I'rlnrrni Anne Itobbery. The Marylander and Herald, publish? ed at PrinccFs Anne, Md., gives a full account of the robbery of the postoffice at that place last Thursday night. The robbery, from this account, appears to have been among the boldest ever oc? curring. There was $100 In money in the safe blown open besides the stamps, which the robbers did not get because of the alarm given by a young lady, Miss Mary Brlttingham. The Herald says: "Miss Brlttingham was alone In her home, her father having gone to Phil? adelphia, and the bravery exhibited by her In her efforts to get to Mr. MeMas ter's residence and arouse him. without letting the burglars hear her. Is loudly, applauded. One thing Is certain, that the alarm given by her saved the mon? ey In the safe." CENSUS SUPERVISORS The Appointment of Mr. White head Held Up. ? > ' ?- ? (bnlrman Dny, of Hwnnd DIMrlci CODircnlonnl commuter, Ilecoiii? meud- nr. II. E. 8iui<b. or Kalfolb. for Sountor Mrtrttn'* Endor.eiueui It now seems probable that Congress? man W. A. Youns's recommendation of Mr. John Whllehcad. of this city, for Census Supervisor for the Second Con? gressional District, will not be en? dorsed by Senator Martin, but, accord? ing to a dispatch received from the Richmond correspondent of the Vir? ginian-Pilot last night, the recommen? dation of Chairman Day, of the Demo? cratic Congressional Committee of this, (lie Second District, will receive tlie' junior Senator's endorsement, and pre? sumably also that of Senator Daniel. The reason for disregarding Congress? man Young's recommendation is given in the special published below: (Special to Virginian-Pilot.) The appointment of a census super? visor for the Second Congressional Dis? trict ia not yet mad", but" it will be announced In a day or two. Mr. H. E. Smith, of Suffolk, will be the man. This has been foreseen for several days, but has never been certain. Mr. Smith was recommended to Senator Martin by Chairman Day, of the n m - oratio Committee- of the Second !' :> rlcL Rater Congressman Young recomm tid? ed Mr. John Whltehcad, of Norfolk. Mr. Young delayed several weeks in replying to Senator Martin's letter, asking him ti> rcc immend n man, und before he had answered Chairman Day, lit the request of Senator Mai tin. nomi? nated Mr. Smith. This caused -i dead? lock and the appointment has lnicn held tip Director Mcrrlman. of the Census Bureau, has relied solely upon Senators in making appointments, nnd Senators, in turn, have relied upon the Congress? men to a very large extent. Ordinarily the recommendation of Mr. Young would have settled the matter, but his delay in making It has caused it vic? tory for the man endorsed by Chair? man Day." MURDERER ARRESTED. BEN M'COY. CHARGED WITH SLAYING MARY JONES. Thesupposed murderer of MarvJones, the colored woman who was found dead early last Sunday morning In a ditch near Lambert's Point, was arrested yesterday afternoon nt Sewell's Point by Special Costa biet .lames Ferguson and L. \V. Lambert, of Lambert's Point, assisted by Otllcer Whllebead, of the Norfolk police foree. The suspect Is Ben McCoy, who hn.?> been for some time past the lover of Ihe murdered woman. He Is an em? ploye of Ironmonger's oyster packing establishment at Sewell's Point. Mc? Coy and the dead woman had been to? gether a. great deal of the lime. He states that lie wns with her Saturday night ami until Sunday afternoon, al? though the woman was found dead early Sunday morning. This Inaccura? cy Is one of the strong links of cir? cumstantial evidence connecting him with the crime. McCoy was given a preliminary hear? ing 'before Justice Loper, of Lambert's Point, late yesterday afternoon, And was sent on to the grand Jury. He was brought to Norfolk last night and lodged In the city Jail. The body of Mary Jones was exhumed and despite the decomposition the re? mains were recognized by McCoy, and also by William Junes, the woman's rightful husband. Justice Loper hold the latter ns a witness. I McCoy has been In thla_i_i_x?___?or' several years. Ho Is about 43 years old. He came hero from South Mills, N. C, from which place he was sent up for one year for shooting his brother. He will bo taken to Portsmouth and lodged in the county jail to-day. TYSON SECURES COUNSEL. MR. P. J. MORRIS WILT. REPRE? SENT HIM TO-DAY. Yesterday Substitute Police Officer Tyson, confined In the city jail on the charge of shooting J. Wilbur Stakes a few weeks ngn, secured Mr. P. J. Mor? ris to represent him In Hie trial of his ense. It Is more than likely that the preliminary examination before Justice Tomlln this morning will bo waived. This is understood to he the intention of the attorney. If this course Is pur? sued it ia not likely that application for bail will bo made to Judge Hanckel, as Is usually done. Mr. Morris had a con? ference at the city Jail with Tyson yes? terday afternoon. THE POLICE BOARD. Mr. Stakes, the young sign painter, who was recently shot by Officer Tyson! hns sufficiently recovered to enable him' to bo out. There will be a special meet? ing of the Hoard of Police Commission? ers Monday night next to consider the matter. The unsettled condition of Mr. Stakes has been the c>use of the board's delay in acting upon this case. ?

Fooling that his duty was prin? cipally that of a teacher, he takes this step with the hope that he may ac? complish greater good in his new field. It is with tho profoundest regret that tho faculty and the citizens of Ashland, as well as the friends generally of the college, learn of the contemplated de? parture of Dr. Kern and his estimable family, but wish for them greater suc? cess und happiness in their new home. Among those mentioned for the vacan? cy here are Dr. W. j. Voting, of Nor? folk; Dr. A. Coke Smith, of Lynch burg; Rev. James A. Duncan and Rev. James Cannon. Jr. Dolnwo-i' H?t,?n* f'oilllltsr?
