THEIR SYMPATHIES WILL NOT EXTEND To an Open Strike—They Will En deavor, However, to Bring About a Settlement. Chicago, Dec. 21.—The committee representing the engineers, firemen, con ductors and trainmen of the Santa Fe railway system declared tonight that they would not advise a strike in sympathy with the telegraphers. The committee, consisting of J. F. Reddy and Irving Wellman, representing the engineers; Thomas Burke, representing the firemen; H. C. Scott, representing the trainmen, and W. H. Hutton of the conductors, is sued the following statement: "As members of the committee repre senting the engineers, firemen and train men on the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railway, we wish to say that, at the request of the telegraphers, we have en deavored to bring about a satisfactory settlement of the differences between the railroad company and the telegraphers. After a careful and thorough investiga tion of the causes which led to the con troversy and after listening to the state ments of the telegraphers and also state ments of the telegraphers and also state ments from Mr. Barr, third vice president of the road, we wish to state to the public as well as to the different organizations that we represent, that while we regret that we are unable to bring about a set tlement between the telegraphers and the railroad company, we also wish to advise the members of the organizations repre sented by us that the labors of the com mittee are completed and the attitude of our members will be neutral during the existence of the present controversy. Our meeting with Mr. Barr was a pleasant one, he expressed a desire to maintain friendly relations with labor organiza tions as long as they were conducted on business principles." Franchise Tax Law. Albany, Dec. 2i*—Many amendments to the franchise tax law are expected to appear at the coming legislative session. In putting the law into effect it has been found that the taxing of highway cross ings in the country does not pay. It is probable that an amendment will be in troduced altering the law in this regard. Another criticism directed against the law is that it requires the state to assess franchises at their full value, as the rate for assessing real estate ranges from 55 to 95 per cent, in the different counties. Some corporations have gone to the courts and had their assessments equal ized with other real estate. There is also no penalty for cities, towns and village officials failing to report assessment of franchises promotly, so the taxes on many franchises are not collected at all. Welcome the New Century. Chicago, Dec. 21.—Welcoming the new century and bidding farewell to the old is to be made the occasion of the most elaborate and impressive "watch night" services Chicago has ever knowu. Bis hops of the Methodist church have united in requesting all pastors and congregation of that denomination to observe the event in a befitting manner. Other : churches art- joining in the movement : and the indications are that few eyes in Chicago will be closed in sleep on the night of December 31 until the twentieth century has made its appearance. Lead ers in the movement for a general cele bration maintain that there are many sentiments associated with the event that should make it oue of the most important in history. Rev. H G. Jackson, presiding elder of the Chicago district, said: "Nearly every church in my district is to hold 'watch night' services. Each pastor will arrange his own program, which will be partici pated in by the pastor, congregatron. Kp worth league and Sunday school. There will be preaching, prayer meeting, song service, testimonials, social features, end ing with silent prayer at midnight. After the stroke of the clock that ushers in the new ceDtury there will be general hand shaking and congratulations." Kruger at Amsterdam. Amsterdam, Dec. 21.—Mr. Kruger ar rived here today.
