THE STRIKE ENDED The Journeymen Signed Articles of Agreement Yesterday. A Conference. Bouri! Appointed to Kettle Future !?l I - n ml <? r, < an <i I tigs ?A Referee to tilve rinni Judtc* mania The strike or Norfolk's Union journymen plumbers that was Inaugu? rated eight weeks ago was settled yes? terday morning as was forecasted by the Virginian-Pilot. Sunday evening the Journeymen held a meeting at Bricklayers' Hall and dis? cussed the compromise engineered by Secretary and Treasurer W. J. Spencer, of their National Union. Yesterday morning they met at Bricklayer*' Hall and signed the agreement that had been signed on Saturday night by the master plumbers. The requests of the journeymen were practically acceded to, and the new scale goes into effect October 1st. Un? der the new agreement the master plumbers can employ non-union men for a few days at any time. This lei to allow the master plumbers to have labor enough in an emergency when enough union men arc not obtainable, but will, of course, not be construed to permit the continued employment of non-union journeymen alongside of union men in any shop in Norfolk. It is a well-known fact in union circles that union men are not allowed to work for any length of time In a shop where non-union men are em? ployed. A CONFERENCE BOARD. It was the drsire of Secretary Spencer to settle this strike in such a manner as to prevent strikes in the future, as far as possible. To this end a permanent Conference Hoard has been formed, consisting of two members from the Master Plumb? ers' Association and two members from the Journeymen Plumbers' Union. in eise of future misunderstanding or violations of the agreement on the part of either parties to It. the Con? ference Committee is empowered to ad Just all disputed points, and should its members fail to agree, it is empowered to call in a 111 person to act as referee, and the decision of this referee shall ba final and binding on both parties. THIRTY DAYS' NOTICE. A further agreement in the articles sigtied is that in ease either party de? sires to annul or amend the agreement the other party to it shall have thirty days' notice of such desire. The agreement gives unanimous sat? isfaction on nil sides and was adopted unanimously by the men as well as the master plumbers. Secretary Spencer will leave Norfolk to-day, going from here to Washington, D. C, and to Worcester, Mas.s. There Is a plumbers' strike on at Worcester, and Secretary Spencer will endeavor to adjust the differences there in a mutually satisfactory manner. He and the local union, as well as the Master Plumbers' Association, are to !>?-> congratulated on his able work in Norfolk, for ho took hold of the trouble hero in a business-like way, smoothed out the tangles, ami to-day the journeymen will all he back at work.

The latest of the capsizes was the sloop yacht Iairline. In which the FcntrCSS parly, about whom the false rumor of a cap s.ze was started Saturday, took their trip.

ADMITTED TO BAIL Trial ofE. H. Dunbar?Treasurer Merry Arrested. .IiKtlco Tonil In, of tlio I'ollce Court, Henri l lie M n t oni en I oT l lie t oill plolnnut ? Defend cut Claim? IIo Wnw Iltrelf nu A tout. E. II. Dunbar, the Norfolk managDr of tho Northern-Southern Kindling Wood Company, a concern chartered in I Maine, was arraigned before Justice Tonilin in Ihe Police Court yesterday morning. The case was partly heard by lite Justice, but liiere being other evi? dence which it was thought desirable to be produced, the hearing was continued until next Monday morning. Dunbar was admitted to bail in Hie sum of ?S00, but failed to give it, and was taken back to Jail. j The story of Dunbar's urrcst wan given In Sunday's Vlrglnian-Pllot. Dunbar still claims that he la not cul? pable; that lie acted merely in an agent's capacity in receiving the money from Ml. Shelley, lie is represented by Air. P. J. Morris, who argued that it was merely a civil cause ot action that Mr. Shelley had against Iiis client, or the company he represented. Justice Toinlln heard the statement.of Mr. Shelley. He talked right out, using the plainest of \Jueen s English in de? signating Dunbar und describing his dealings with him. Justice Toinlln asked Mr. Shelley what representations Dunbar made to him to secure the $2r.o he Is charged with fraudulently obtaining. The prosecutor produced a number of circulars which he said Dunbar gave to him. These circulars described the company and its purposes. One of them stated that the company was chartered in Maine ami had a capital stock of S?O.IjOU, fully paid up. The lYead office of the company, it was stated, was In Boston. The object of the company, briefly stated, was to utilise the waste around sawmills and lumber yards by manufacturing said waste into kindling material, it was claimed by the pro? moters of the company that the ileorg" c. Iteid mill at Money Point and the Batchclder, two miles further up, had been secured by the company and that scrap lumber, shavings, saw-dust, slabs, etc.. would be carried on barges in these plants and converted into kindling material. The Shelley Fuel Company, of Phil? adelphia, wns organized about the same time. Mr. M. Shelley, the general man? ager of this company, is the inventor of the Little Jollier and Lighter Klndler, which is a box of kindling material about half the size of an ordinary shoe box. Air. Shelley claims that Dunbar, who was advertised on the circulars as the Norfolk manager of the Northern Southern Kindling "Wood Company, came to him and showing him the cir? culars, got him Interested in the enter? prise, and n. contract was entered Into by which the company represented by Dunbar wns to turn out 10,000 of those kindling boxes daily for Shelley. When tho contract was made Dunbar secur? ed from Sh.lley $250. This story was fully told ?to Justice Tnmlin by Mr. Shelley, who further snid 1 that ho had let Dunbar have about $40 on his personal account, which be > didn't have charged to him. Besides this he said he had spent between $400 and J.'.no in sending out his salesmen from Philadelphia to this section of the country. Mr. Shelley told Justice Tomlln that ho had Investigated the company sine" coining to Norfolk and found that It had no plant at Money Polnrt, ami had no fuel there except some old wator Roakcd cord wnnd. lie also claimed that it had not bought the Reld plant, nor leased the noteholder plant. Further Interesting di velopments are promised. TREASURER MERT ARRESTED. CSeorgo O. S. Merry, the treasurer of the company of which Dunbar is local manager, was arrested last night about U:r>0 o'clock by Def ctive Childl ess, who found Mr. Merry at his home in the country beyond It. rkley. The chnrgc against Merry Is the same as that brought against Dunbar, and is brought by the same man, M. Shel? ley. AI 11 o'clock last night'Merry was bailed by Judge W. P. Martin, of tho Court of Law and Chancery, in the sum of $350, with D. C, Foreman as surety. Mr. Tazewell Taylor, who Merry em? ployed to defend him, went to Judge Martin in company with Merry and De? tective Chlldress. Merry stated to Detective Childrcss that he had no fears whatever of the outcome of the case, lie said the com? pany of which he was treasurer has acted In good faith with Shelley, and that it will be ready shortly to deliver him tho kindling boxes per contract.

The work on the Atlantic City bridge, which Is being constructed by the Edge-Moor Bridge Company, of Wil? mington, Del., under the supervision of Mr. W. H. Taylor, Jr., of the City En? gineer's olllee, is progressing very sat Isfactorlally. About two-thirds of the under structure is completed. The foundation is of stone and concrete, and the bridge Is fastly anchored at either end. It will be 3U0 feet long and will be one of the best structures of its kind In this vicinity. ? The work of repairing the Ghent bridge is still held up because of the in? ability of the City Engineer to get any one to go ahead with the work. Coun? cils referred l hid matter to the Finance Committee with full authority to act, and the expenditure of $6,150 has been authorized to complete the badly need? ed repairs to the bridge, but as brldgo building firms are busy all over the country no one has yet been awarded the contract for this work. The Holt street bridge, leading to Bramble ton, will also be repaired short? ly at a co3t of $1,000. Jllll ItOllimtSfelnM IO Heel.
