THEY WANT AN INCREASE OF WAGES And Minor Changes in the Regula tions— Do Not Want to Perform Two Duties for one Salary. Chicago, Dec. 10.— Six hundred tele graph operators on the lines of the Atch ison, Topeka & Santa Fe have struck in sympathy with the operators on the Gulf, Colorado & Santa Fe railroad, a branch of the Atchison system, who went out late Thursday. The foregoing statement is according to the liest information ob tainable from the company's offices to night. The entire number of operators on the system is 1200, of whom 900 are said to be union men. Of the 900 in the union, 31x1, it is stated, refused to strike, leaving the system about half of its men at work. The officers of the road declare that tinder no circumstances will they yield to the strikers and that none of them will ever again work for the com pany in any capacity. The operators 011 the main lines of the Atchison system demanded some weeks ago an increase in pay and some changes in rates. The negotiations with the com pany, however, had not reached acute stage when the company acceeded to the demands of the men and trouble was averted. The new order of things did not pre vail on the Culf, Colorado & Santa F'e, anil the operators there demanded an in crease of pay approximately, it is said, to fiou per annum for each man and altera tions in the rules whereby men were com pelled to act as telegraph operators and station agents also. The demand was refused and the men went out. Tonight the men on the main system went out in sympathy. The strike at this end of the line did not lake effect until 4:30 this afternoon, and tonight, despite the scarcity of oper ators, all trains pulled out for the west on schedule time. As soon as the com pany knew of the troultle it was coin pelhd to face, word was sent along the line to set the danger signal at all switches anil ahead of all passenger trains a pilot was sent out, the crew look ing after all switches and setting the proper signals for the trains behind. It was announced tonight at the offices of the company that trains would continue to be run in this way and that in stretches of territory where there were no opera tors the trains were not to run on schedule time, the engineer regulating his running by the time cartl. Statehood for Oklahoma South McAi.kstkr, I. T., Dec. 10.— The advocates for statehood for Indian terrritory and Oklahoma are assembled in convention here today. The ratio of representation from Oklaiioma is based on the vote for delegate to congress, the whole territory having 300 delegates. The Indian territory also has 300 dele gates. The work is in charge of Judge Bradford of Ardmore foi Indian territory ' and I). C. Lewis of Oklahoma City for j Oklahoma The county committees have I done their work so thoroughly that each ! territory is fully represented. The senti j ment for single statehood for the two ter 1 ritories is very strong and has found vig ; orous expression in t day's convention, i The reasons advanced for single statehood ! by the Indian territory delegate are that I the people are now ready for it; that the j combined population of the two territo 1 ries is 790,000; that their taxable wealth i is over #95,000.000, which is considerably I mote wealth and more people than was possessed by any state at the time of ad ; mission into the federal union, and is j even more wealth and more people than several states of the union now possess; that the number of childreeu of school age in the two territories is even greater than one or two other states now in the union; that the soil is rich and fertile and varied in products, the climate good, the water pure and healthful, that the min eral resources are absolutely inexhausti ble, and the people industrious and pros perous; that the people want schools and colleges, law and justices; that they want roads opened and bridges built, their mines opened and above all that higher aud better civilization which these things will bring; that they want the treaties carried out in good faith, and every In dian of the Five tribes made a citizen of the United States. They say further: Let the settlement of the Indian nations go on, but amalgamate the two territories into a state of the union that the united citizens tnay have a government of their own to look to for the proper redress of their wrongs, and that law and justice may he properly administered. There is also a very strong opposition to atnalga illation with Oklahoma. Gov. Barnes of Oklahoma favors single statehood. Nicaragua Canal. Washington, Dec. 10.— The Nicara gua canal hill is set down for considera tion in the senate. The report of the Isthmian canal commission is an exhaust ive one and adds largely to the cost of the isthmian canal over the estimates made at the last session of congress. The increased cost is due to favoring a much larger canal than the Nicaraguan advo cates asked for last spring. The report recommends that the canal tie 150 feet in width, ns cotni>ared with 100 feet named as the width in the former plan and a mean depth of 35 feet over sills, as compared with 30 feet recommended before, long. It ulso calls for locks 700 feet, Some of the members of the com mission favor 800 feet long. The bill was 1 set down for today through the wise fore thought of Senator Morgan, who deter mined in the last session of congress to give it an early start in this congress. Examination of Hamilton.

AMERICAN CREW TO BE SELECTED Men of Ex perlene« From All Over America Will be Chosen to Sail the Defender. Nkw York, Dec. 10. —The Herald saya: The name of the yacht to defend the America's cup has been given much thought by W. Butler Duncan, Jr., its manager. Mr. Duncan has come to the conclusion that "Eagle" would lie an ap propriate name for the new vessel. He lias tiot yet fully reached a decision in the matter, hut Eagle has a national ring about it, and it ia not devoid of meaning. Some object to the name on the ground that it is too short for such a big boat, but that is nothing. It really stands for size, strength and speed, aud 1 the bird is the national emblem of the United State*, which is a great deal. It is Mr. Duncan's purpose to secure an American crew for the new boat. Conti ary to all the expectations, how eves, they will not all be chosen from the sailor boy* down in Maine, as were the crews from the Defender and the Colum bia, but they will be from "all around "All around" means that Mr. Duncan and his skipper will select men of ex perience and intelligence, strong, wiry and alert, qualities demanded in the crew ot a boat defending the America's cup.
