for the shippers. Kaiser says railway scales generally are off a little

these people over the head right at the start.
Business* Agent Burns, Central Labor council —You'll notice who
Seymour called In to advise hlm-lngersoll, Hyde and the Qriggs.

labor men to advise with him on labor matters. None of them, was
called in on this—a labor matter."
Walter Risk, secretary of the Builders' and Kmployern' associa

had done as well an the city official* I think we would be all right.
Commissioner Pettit —I am determined not to precipitate any
violence, and I am determined that every man who wants to work
shall be permitted to work. The police are keeping everybody off
the bridge now. The structure isn't very safe and with crowds there
might prove dangerous to life and limb.
Statement given outat St. Paul mill offices—We've never had
any strike. Some men laid off for Uood Friday, and then celebrated
Saturday, but they are all back today.
The St. Paul mill controversy

The first declaration of strike
by the I. W. W. threatened to
precipitate a stiuatlon here simil

Commissioner Pettit proceeded
cautiously, guaranteed fair play
to everybody and has prevented
any bloodshed.
Things today are more quiet
than at any time yet.
Yesterday morning there were
42 I. W. W. men at the bridge.
Last night K. K. Rogers counted

TAFT INSTRUCTIONS
NOT NECESSARY

ROCHESTER, N. V., April 9.
—Republican machine leader*,
In the state convention here, side
stepped the question of Instruct
ing the state's delegates at larg*
for President Taft. The session
was devoted to organization and
the drafting of a platform. Vice
President James S. Sherman and
Senator Elihu Root urged the
convention to instruct the dele
gates at large for President Taft.
Just before the convention open
ed Senator Root said:
"We need only a few more
delegates to hare the state for
President Taft and we are going
to get them."
A heavy snowstorm failed to
keep the delegates away from the
convention.
William H. Barnes, leader of
the republican machine, fought
the efforts of Vice President Sher
man and Senator Root for In
structions for Taft. He declared
instructions unnecessary.. The
standpat leaders said the platform
could ignore the initiative and
referendum measures, "although
the recall of judges demanded
specific denunciation."
