BREAK IS AVERTED III SHE Leaders Claim Gains in Philadelphia--Bankers Not Bothered by Boycott PHILADELPHIA March 14.—In terest In the general strike centered today in the ability of the labor unions to hold the striking workmen together and prevent a break. Reports made this evening at the labor headquarters show that while some returned to work after a week's idleness, there is at the time no in dication of a general break. On the j other hand, some of the outstand ing unions Joined the strikers. Calling out this morning by the Central Labor union of all men em ployed In supplying milk, break and other necessaries of life had no se rious effect. The participation In this order was less than expected anti it is believed will grow larger. The strike declared against bank ers is a new wriukle in labor war fare. It is announced that there will be no sudden withdrawal of union funds from the financial institutions but that deposits will be gradually taken out. Commenting on the strikers’ move to withdraw their funds from the bunks, the officials of the clearing house said today: ’’It Is all bun combe and won't cause any trouble." It is believed the printers, mu sicians and several other unions will stick to their decision not to Join the strike and continue to refuse to' obey the order of the Central Labor Union, despite the great pressure that Is being put on to get them out. The Transit company claims It has now 5,000 motormen and conductors at work and needs but 1,500 more to bring the service up to the stand-j ard. It asserts that new men are ; dally applying for work and that u good many former employes are com ing back. Attracted by a Are in a box car on a railway siding in Kensington, a crowd of several thousand persons collected late today. Small boys threw stones at some of the police and later the windows of a number of cars were broken. Aside from this outbreak, cars were run without molestation and there were more cars In operation than since the strike began. The police and the traction com pany officials agree in the statement that the situation Is improving hour ly. The rough element that the company hired when the strike began is being weeded out and a better class of men now operate the cars. The settlement of the strike is still uppermost in the minds of citi zens in iMiUadelphia. Nearly every body considers arbitration as the natural method, but the company In sists there Is nothing to arbitrate. Officials of the union are Just as determined that no settlement will be accepted that does not include full recognition of the union. The company offers to tuke strikers back and does not demand that they shall drop their union membership, but Insists that the union shall cut no figure in any peace negotiations. In other words the company Is for the "open shop.” THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY.

To the end of success at the polls. Senator Root Informed State Chair man Woodruff that opposition to Governor Hughes and his measures much cease und the suggestion is said to have been directly made that federal power would be used to thwart opposition if it continued.

In Supreme Court Dakota Decision-Live Stock Ruling—Oil Case Up — — WASHINGTON, March 11.—The semiioim of the Supreme court of the| I oiled States were made more than i usually notable and Interesting to1 the public today by the handing down of several Highly important decisions In which there has been widespread interest, and by opening of the Stand ard Oil case. Among these was rul ing on the North Dakota coal rate law of 1907. The court held the law to be constitutional for the present despite the claim of the railroads that the law requires the transpor tation of coal below the cost of the hauling service. The court declined to vacate the writ of error issued by Justice Bur ton in the case of Charles R. Heike, of New York, who was denied free dom by the lower court from prose cution on an indictment of conspir acy to defraud the government. By divided bench, 4 to 4, the court afTrmed the decision of the Federal court holding that the separate ship ment is the proper unit for assessing penalties under the 28-hour law, and not the train. The decision Is one of great importance to the railroads and ! stockmen, affecting every shipment! that may be carried beyond the 28 | hour limit without the attention pre scribed by law. Found by the lower Federal court to be a combination in restraint of trade and a monopoly of a branch of interstate commerce. Standard Oil appeared at the bar of the Su preme court of the Cnlted States to make final argument against Its dis solution under the Sherman anti trust law’. The government was present to insist on a decree of en forcement of the order of dissolution. This proceeding before the high est trubunal of the country Is the outgrowth of years of investigation of Standard OH on the part of the government. The defense had In court today a corps of the brightest legal minds to be obtained. On the government's side there were Attor ney General Wlckersham and Frank B. Kellogg, who has fought the case fc-om the nrst. KLKCTIUK'l TKI> FOli .MFRDKR. Second of Burglars Convicted of More Serious Crime I‘ays Penalty. OSSINING, N. Y.. March 14.

Thompson For Fine Structure** Others Follow*'Expects Much Pro* gress in The District During Year Conclusive demonstration of his faith in the district and in East Ely as a large residence and business center was the action of W. B. Thompson yesterday when he sanc tioned plans for a new business block in East Ely and authorized im mediate construction. In addition, Mr. Thompson sanctioned the prog ress made with the installment plan of the Ely Securities Co. for the benefit of those in the district who may desire to become home owners and authorized its continuance. The new business clock will be erected upon the foundation next to the Steptoe hotel and will have sev- j en fine large store rooms on the j first floor. The basement will also i be made into business quarters. The .structure will follow plans drawn j some time ago and with other busi ness buildings which are to be erect-! ed this spring will fill the one need) that East Ely has experienced, that | of quarters for business houses1 which have desired to come here and | avail themselves of the trade of the J railroad men. smelter, mill and mine f men who reside in East Ely and whose number grows with each1 week. When It became known yesterday that Mr. Thompson had quickly en-; dorsed the plans presented for build ing the business block and that home building on the installment plan would continue, there was an imme diate stir in East Ely and announce ment came without delay of plans for the erection of two more business blocks by individual interests. One of these will be built by Col. W. E. Bowen on his lots next to tbe East Ely grocery building and the other will be erected by Fulmer & Ives. This latter building will fill In the space between the present Fulmer & Ives concrete building and the Ely Townsite v,o. building. Mr. Thompson spent most of yes terday in the office of the Ely Town site Co., where he went thoroughly into matters pertaining to his Inter ests in the district. He said at the conclusion of the day that he was very well pleased with the state of affairs he had found and that his real estate Interests looked bette% than ever to him, both In Ely and East Ely. Ho expects that both towns will make fine progress this year. East Ely has demonstrated its merit and scored advance to such extent that there Is no longer question as to its growth in population and industry, which the developments In the diB-j trict as time passes will aid in a big way. Since last summer there has been constant demand for business quar ters in East Ely and with buildings erected to meet this demand there Is no question but that East Ely will forge ahead with greajer vigor and rapidity than at any time in its past history. The payroll of the Nevada Northern in East Ely last month to taled near $35,000 and Is growing each month. I — KARTUM, March 14.—Colonel Theodore Roosevelt and party ar rived here at 5 o’clock this after noon. The former president receiv ed a most flattering reception. A steam launch filled with news paper correspondents who had been sent here from all ports of the world accompanied the steamer Dal, which carried the Roosevelt party Into the interior and up to the pier. Upon the pier Colonel Roosevelt was pressed ny an enormous crowd, all anxious for the nearest possible view, but his escort saved him from any possible discomfort. He was es corted to fhe palace of the Sirdar, by Major General Francis Wingate. At the steps of the palace he was receiv ed by the high officials. Col. Roosevelt was dressed in a Khaki hunting suit and wore a white helmet. Within the palace tea was served and Colonel Roose velt received all of the higher offi cials of the government. The for mer president then hurried away to the station, where he was on hand to meet Mrs. Roosevelt and Miss Kthel Roosevelt upon their arrival at 6 o’clock. This evening no one was permitted to disturb the privacy of the Roosevelts. Tomorrow a round of entertainments and sight-seeing l will begin. I I W. B. Thompson Thinks Outlook Never More Promising in District W. B. Thompson, accompanied by Ills wife and daughter, Miss Mar garet, and George E. Gunn, arrived in East Ely Sunday evening from Mason Valley. They have since been at the Step toe. Today they will visit the mines. Returning this afternoon, they will go direct to Cobre and thence to Salt Lake, trom where after a brief stop, Mr. and Mrs. Thompson will continue to New York.. "We have been absent from the east a month,” said Mr. Thompson, In an interview last evening, “dur ing which time we have visited the El Reyo mine in Mexico, the Inspira tion at Globe and the Mason Valley properties. We stopped two weeks in California. Throughout the trip we have found conditions very satis factory in all ways. "At El Reyo the production is ex cellent. the mine is in fine form, with sufficient ore reserves to war rant the belief that for the next few years double the dividends of re cent months will be earned and paid. “Inspiration is in splendid shape. Several million tons of better than 2 per cent ore are blocked out through shafts, drifts, crosscuts ana upraises, and many million tons more highly indicated by churn drill operations. Development Is crowd ing right along and the property re sponding with steady increase In ore reserves. “The situation at Mason Valley mine is very pleasing. Our richest ' ore there has been developed through No. 4 tunnel, which is our lowest level. A 500 to 800-ton smelter will be erected and put In commission as soon as possible. Everything points to a greater mine below the present depth than we have above. The annual meeting of the company Is held today and we will know the result tomorrow. The action anticipated at this meeting will cause multiplication by five of the price at which the stock was quoted today; in other words, the par value of the stock 1$ Increased five times. The million dollar bond issue convertible to the new stock at $10 per share will be immediately underwritten and offered pro rata to the stockholders. Thus the money with which to go ahead is as good as in hand for the carrying out of all plans that have been made for rain ing and reduction work at the prop erty. “Concerning the Ely district, from what I have seen and gathered since here, it seems in tine form. I can say more about this after the visit to the mines tomorrow. Regarding the acquiring of a large Interest In Nevada Consolidated by the Utah Copper, this district need Teel no worry. It is not likely there will be any change In the manner of operation nor any halt In the policy of development and expansion at mines and reduction works which has been followed to date. Nor is it likely theer will be any change In the operating start. The coming of Mr. Jackling to the Nevada Con. di rectorate will simply mean the ad vantage of the valuable counsel which he will be able to give from time to time. “I do not believe the outlook was ever more promising for the district than it is at present. Confidence abroad concerning it is of the very highest, and finds strong backing in the excellent mining and aneltlng results being obtained. Development work being carried on, fro« all re ports, is meeting with a wanner of success that is very gratlftlng. par ticularly to those of us wlo have al ways held enthusiastic views con cerning the district. Deep mining of rich ores Is among the things in the future of the camp and will unques tionably add very largely to the prosperity of the district and to its output of metal.” COLUMBUS, O., Varch 14.—J. W. Jones, of Qlouster, aged 73 yearn, certified to the Supreme court today that ho had this ditf begun the study of law preparatoiy to admission to the bar.
