that it would nuit agidn tomorrow morn
inj No conference was In Id with the
manufacturers nnd the latest story i
that none is contemplated
Having rend in the local papers tint
the manufacturers hd agreed to n settle
ment tint would be n triumph for the
Amalgamated Association the btrikers
were astonished today to icarn that Mor
gan had practlcallv issued an ultimatum
and that the acceptance of It by Shaffer
would be a vlctorv for the trust They
now realize that if the strike is settled
under the terms made public the Amal
gamated Association will not lne won
the main point on which the strike was
declared and will hae lot privileges
that it prewouly had
It was learned today that In all proba
bility the manufacturers are not willing
to -concede to the strikers the four steel
hoop mills three in Pittsburg and one in
Monessen that has been considered non
union but demonstrated they were organ
ized by ceasing work when Shaffer called
the Amalgamated Association out The
strikers learned that it is extremely like
ly should the strike be now settled that
these mills will be regarded as non union
and that the manufacturers will refuse
to slgi the Amalgamated scales for them

In brief the strikers win ioeuie - fccteJ recently chiefly by French and
burg and Old Meadow sheet steel mills German I1nklng inrs
which the manufacturers once offered to u K believed that this Is the cause of
them but which the m inufacturers have the present rate of private dsCunt which
since decided to retain the men in them
cven for Nrsi dass paper Is so low that
having refused to join the strike besides lt tloei not pd partles concerned to allow
losing the four steel hoop mills which
they gained from the manufacturer
All that could be obtained from Shaffer
today wis the following statement
I can say that tne meeting has ad
journed until tomorrow morning There
will be no statement made by me until
the executive board either accepts or re
jects the proposition offered The board
will continue the uork tomorrow
In the meantime the strikers are as
vigilant as ever in picketing the non
union mills of the three companies and
the companies are making repairs and are
ready to make concentrated efforts to
resume work at the idle mills whether
the strike he called oft or be continued
While there is spirited objection from
various members of the Amalgamated
Associations executive board to settling
the strike on Morgans terms and though
the members ot the association generally
would reluctantly accept such a termina
tion this does not meanthat the strike
will continue Under thefrulcs of the
association the president and secretary
can be authorized by the executive board
to end any strike and It is likely that
Shaffer and Se cretary Williams will re
ceive the boards Instructions to accept
the manufacturers terms although
efforts will first be made to secure modifi
cations of them
The long distance telephone to Xew
York was kept busy the executive board
trying to secure easier conditions
from the heads of the trust At the close
of the morning session some of the mem
bers of the executive board could not re
strain themselves from venting their dis
satisfaction at the reply that President
Shnffcr had brought bjck from Xew York
and which he had Just been urging thera
to
Thcv would not say categorically what
the terms were but they intimated that
unless they were modified the board would
probably reject them They object to
the provision allowing men to
work In the union mills and hey do not
believe the rank and file will look with
favor upon the retention by the manu
facturers of the men who are now work

NEWPORT R I Jjlv 30 -The Consti
tution went to Bristol today to have some
aiteratfons made In her rigging which Mr
Duncan has decidtl are necessary In view
of the new yachts defeat by the old Co
lumbia yesterday Mr Duncan says there
was some trouble yesterday with the
mains ill that prevented the yacht from
pointing or footing well and that she
will not be entereil In another race until
h r rig has been changed The man will
be lengthened five feet and the topmast
will be shortened There will be no
change In the hoist of the mainsail but
by lengthening the mast It is thought
the peak halyards will have a better lead
and the gaff will thus be kept Inboard
The trouble w ith the mainsail is thought
to have been caused by the gaft swinging
too far outboard To accomplish the
change will take from one week to ten
days
Of course the Constitution will not
miet the Columbia and Independence in
the Newport Yacht Racing Associa

of this week Her Inability to st irt will
not however affect the programme for

THE INDEMNITY PAYMENTS
Fears That China Mn JVot Prove to
Be Prompt
PEKIX July 30 Although it has been
stated that the mattef of the Chinese In
demnity to be paid to the Powers for the
damages sustained during the Boxer re
bellion has been settled to the satisfaction
of nil concerned there Is a feeling here
that complications are likely to arise at
any time which will revive the whole dis
pute and cause a great deal of trouble
It may easily be sten that a dispute
would result If for any reason the Chi
nese Government should fall to make the
Installment payments as agreed Sir
Robert Hart the Imperial Commissioner
of Maritime Customs made a significant
remark today In discussing the Indem
nity one of the foreign Ministers enquired
of Sir Robert If there was any posslolllty
of China paylnft a scini unninl install
ment on the 40 0WtXV taels next January
In the opinion of the Imperial commis
sioner It will be Impossible to make the
necessary changes and secure revenue to
lover the fiist payment in less than a pe
riod othree years
It is said here on the best of authority
that the Powers will strenuously oppose
any such delay In making the Initial in
demnity payment

turn of the Chinese Court to Pekln Rice

MONTGOMERY Ala July 30 After a
full weeks debate on the grandfather
claust of the suffrage article the Con
stitutional Convention adopted lt by the
decisive vote of 109 to 23 It allows all
descendants of soldiers In any war to
register and become life electors at any
time prior to January 1 J90S The whole
temporary scheme of registering voters
up to Jhc above date Including the good
cluiracter clause was ndopttd
The feature -of the discussion was a
spee ch todav by Mr Iowe Chairman of
the State Democratic Executive Commit
tee denouncing the whole plan as a de
liberate scheme to perpetuate fraud In
elections With few exceptions the
strongest mm Intellectually In the body
have been against a hcriditary suffrage
qualification The opposition Includes ex
Govcrnors Thomas G Jones and William
Coates Solicitor Charles W Ferguson of
Birmingham Capt Frank S White of
Birmingham who was chairman of Sen
ator Morgans campaign last year Capt
S H Dent of Eufala and a number ot
other recognized leaders
The black belt Democrats have been
for the clause almost to a man They
bitterly oppose any measure that will dis
franchise a single white man for any
other cause than crime The chief oppo
sition has come from tho white counties
of northern Alabama while the majority
of the supporters of the plan are from
those counties In middle and southern
Alabama where the negro population is in
the majority
The adoptiontflof the grandfather
clause it Is admlttexl means that middle
and southern Alabama will have to brre
lied upon to carfyVthrough the ratification
of the new- constitution when the speciil
State elcctlonffs held for that purpose
as lt Is conceded that the sentiment in
northern Alabama Is so strongly against
the grandfather Idea that many coun
ties in this section nominally Democratic
arc likely- to vote against ratifying the
new instrument with this clause attached
Xot only Is it regarded as a black
belt measure but It Is looked upon by
those who oppose It as being unconstitu
tional and un American They assert lt
will furnish ground for an immediate
legal test of the new- constitution and
that the Supreme Court and a hostile Re
publican Congress are likely- to mako mat
ters disagreeable for Alabama

XEW YORK July 30 Gen Rafael
Uribe Uribe the hero of the Colombian
rebellion who slipped away from this
city mysteriously n little more than a
mnfith ago Is back in Colombia and at
the head of nn Insurrectionary force es
timated to number about 15000 men This
announcement which will prove unwel
come news to the Government he will at
tempt to overthrow was made last night
by Dr A J Restrepo diplomatic agent
of the Liberal potty and Senor Raoul
Perer Secretary lo General Uribe during
the hitters stay here
It Is further asserted that his command
Is supplied with the most Improved Mau
ser rifles purchased abroad by Dr Re
strepo and transshipped from this port as
merchandise What Is perhaps mora
startling Is the statement that much of
the money with which these elements
were secured was contributed by Freo
Masons here nnd In Europe who are anx
ious to rid Colombia of the Conservative
Government which Is unalterably antag
onistic to the order and to all others op
posed by the Catholic Church Dr Re
strepo said that some EOOOcQ was collect
ed In this country and abroad and with
this amount at their disposal he is san
guine the Liberal party will be victori
ous
General Uribe came here last January
after the rebels had nearly exhausted
their ammunition and their casze seemed
hopeless He- agreed with tho Colombian
Minister at Washington Dr Carlos Mar
tinez Sllva to Issue a manifesto calling
on his followers to stop fighting in return
for which the Government promised am
nesty to the political prisoners and to in
stitute certain reforms particularly eqifa
rights at the polls to all citizens These
promises were not fulfilled and Uribe de
termined to make another fight
The general sailed from here on Juno
la on the Cararas under an assumed name
His departure was kept a secret and al
though his movements were closely watch
eel by detectives It was three weeks befora
It was discovered he had left the country
The new outbreak has been planned on a
gigantic scale Besides the 1500 Mau
sers bought for it there have been sent
from the nearby distributing points 2000
000 cartridges three rapid fire guns and
a quantity of other war material
Xews of General Uribes exact where
abouts is expected tomorrow by the
steamer Hlldur from Maracalbo The
opinion prevails that fie has already
fought Beveral battles but If this Is so
the news has been siipp7JKl by the
official CCHour
Dr Restrepo said today In regard to the
interest alleged to have been taken In
the revolution by- members of the Ma
sonic order
General Uribe is a high degree Mason
Colombia because of Its domination by
the Church Is a bitter enemy of Masonry
Wnert this was Teamed here and pbroad
General Uribe and 1 were deluged with
offers ot assistance and we accepted
them
Dr Restrepo said that he purchased the
war supplies In Belglam The diplomatic
agent said that the Liberals wished to
warn the French Panama Canal Com
pany that all contracts which it enters
Into with the Colombian Government
unless approved by Congress will be re
pudiated when the Liberals come into
power A similar warning was the sub
stance of a letter to President Hutin by
Dr Restrepo a year ago
Herbert O Jeffries who It is said Is
connected In a military capacity with tho
Colombian Government is In this city
His commission is reported to be th pur
chasing of arms and also vessels which

UNCERTAINTY IN COLOMBIA
The Liies nnd Property of Foreign
Cllliens otnfe
XEW YORK July 30 The forcible seiz
ure ot Col Abel Murriilo aide ot Gen
Uribe Uribe the Colombian Insurgent
leader by Colombian soldiers and his re
moval from the Atlas Line steamship Al
legheny at Cartagena Colombia was the
climax of a most exciting experience of
Alme vanden Bogaerde the Belgian who
In a signed statement gave the public
the story- of the seizure In his journey
from Colombia here
Mr Bogaerde when seen at the Fifth
Avenue Hotel this morning said that he
hoped the foreign Governments represent
ed at Colombia would be lnlluenciT by
the Murriilo Incident In so far that they
would take some measures to securo pro
tection of their citizens and the property
which they held there
Take my experience for Instance said
Mr Bogaerde It was a most trying one
In my two days journey from Bogota to
Honda botn Government and insurgent
soldiers subjected me to great annoyance
They held our party up and took some
of our mules away from us
From Honda 1 made the trip by rail
to EI Dorado the river station on the
Magdalena River Our party did not num
ber over six When we were trying to
board one of the river steamboats at El
Dorado a party of thirty Insurgents at
tacked usr They- began tiring right and
left An American of the name of Lid
son was shot twice in the arm The sol
diers would have killed him had not some
one shouted that he was a foreigner Lid
I think An Englishman
son lives In this city
lishman of the name of Wilcox took him
to Barraneiullla Uldson was the only one
dangerously wounded A gunshot wound
In such a climate Is far more serious than
In this country He was raving when
taken avvav for he became dellrous In
less than half an hour A negro stand
ing near me was also struck bygone of
the Insurgent bullets The bullet after
passing through my hat grazed his neck
Finally we persuaded the guerrillas
that we were foreigners and they ceased
firing at us The soldiers then made for
the railroad train and forced the engi
neer at the point of their revolvers to
take them luick to Honda The engineer
was a British subject but Colombians
have little respect for ones nationality
Ouf experience was one which frightened
us out of our wits We found a place
of hiding in the town and remained there
two day and a night
At the approach of the guerrillas the
river steamboat had moved out Into the
stream When the captain thought it safe
to return he did so and that was only
when we emergent from our hiding place
lt took the steamboat twelve davs to
reach Savamlla where we boarded the
llegheliy
It was there tint I was Joined by Col
onel Murriilo Edward J White Charles K
Pope an Englishman of the name of
Vatighan and a native family consisting
of a negro physician his wife nnd two
children This native physician had been
banished from Colombia We proceeded
peacefully to Cartagena arriving there
