BIG LABOR LEADERS AGAIN IN A GRAPPLE TO THE BITTER END MORE TRUBLE AT NEW ORLEANS + QUARREL BETWEEN THEOOOoI SHAFFER AND SAMUEL GOM PERS IS RENEWED. It Is a Fight to a Finish, and Odds Seem to Favor Gompers—Result Means Passing of One of the Chiefs. New Orleans, November 18—Either Theodore Shaffer, president ot the Amalgamated Association ot' iron and Steel and Tin Workers, of Samuel Gompers, president of the American Federation of Gabor, is destined to pass under a cloud. The eclipse may emerge at some other time, but an eclipse there will be for oue or the other. It is a tight to tne finish arid at present the odds are in favor of Gompers. The trouble which so suddenly came to a point in the convention of the American Federation ot Labor this morning is the echo of the great strike against the United Stales Steel Corporation which was fougnt aim lost last year by tne Amalgamated as sociation under the leadership of Shaf fer. After his association had been defeated President Shaffer did not hesitate to utter charges of a serious natuie against President Gompers as well as against John Mitchell, presi dent of tne United Mine Workers, and Frank Sargent, of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen. He assorted that the organization over wnich these men presided had. while listening to the advice of their leaders, refused to lend a helping hand to the Amalga mated association and had even fougnt against it in the dark. Charges Against Gompers. The charges were leveled against Mr. Gompers in particular and the fol lowing extracts from the secret, circu lar Issued by President Bnaffer show more specifically ineir scope and na ture: In the circular President Shaffer says: "When we had almost comjAifcij*.* rangements with representatives 'of the American Tin Plate Company for scale rates and conditions, we were in good condition to win without help, but looked for aid from other labor bodies, some of which were pledged and to the genera! public, but espe cially relied upon the American Fed eration of Labor, with which body we have been affiliated ever since its In ception and toward which we have never failed to contribute. Even dur ing our own strike we contributed to the machinists’ union a tax levied hy the American Federation of Labor. "As the strike went on the Ameri can Federation of Labor gave us not a cent. The flint glass blowers, the window glass blowers, the bottle blow ers and the pottery workers’ union gave us help. Perceiving that lack of money, loss of public approval, de sertion by hundreds of our ownpeople and neglect of other organized bodies would make it impossible to gain a de cisive victory, we endeavored to save what we could. “I arranged for Mr. Compere to meet. Mr. Morgan to effect a settle ment. Mr. Morgan gave up his vaca tion, went to New York and waited for Mr. Gompers, who failed to appear aor has he since explained why he neglected our interests. “Mr. Compere urged me to hurry ‘from Pitsburg and sign the wage scale offered by the trust through a 'committee or which Gompers and John .Mitchell were members. •Why did they want our president to go down to New York? Mr. Com pere, by telephone, said to be tne pres ident. of the steel workers as an vidual recommended that, you take a stand for the proposition you have made. I have done the same and ■would do so again. “We refused to have any further conferences (pr the object at MUing THE BRUNSWICK NEWS. WEATHER PHENOMENAL. Records Broken by Heat Wave in No vember. Winter Long Overdue. All warm weather records for the mouth of November have been smash ed during the past two weeks. The eleventh month was ushered in as Novembers have been wot to come for generations past. October had departed with several cold nights to her credit, and owe the thermometers had fallen almost to the frost point. There was every indication that we would have an early winter especially as prognosticators all over the coun try had made predictions to that ef fect. But instead of frosts we have had regular May weather, instead of freezes, heat waves have come swoop ing down upon us. instead of wear ing overcoats, we are going about our dally affairs in our shirt sleeves, while tne sultriness in the air is at times positively oppressive. Within the past week, thermome ters have severa. times held the mer cury above 80 degrees, and at least once it has gone as high as 82 de grees. On some days the minimum temperature, taken at an early hour of the morning, has been lower than OH degrees. The normal mean temperature in this section for November, between tne Ist and 15th, is about 68 de crees. The moan temperately- ,for this November has been far in excess of that, land there is a large accu multed excess since the Ist of the month. There is no indication of an imme diate change in weather conditions, though (he present, dry, sultry spell has remained unbroken for a fort night. The cold will come with a rush, though, when it finally takes a notion to steer its course southward. First* will come a rain, then we will see the afcatner vanes whirl around toward the northwest, and Boreas will come swooping down upon us with all his old-time gusto. And the average citizen doesn’t care how soon he comes. We are all tired of this sort of weather. WORMWOOD TOMORROW NIGHT. This Excellent Attraction Will Be Seen at the Grand. A rare treat, is promised the Bruns ; wick theater goers at the Grand to- I morrow night when Corelli's famous ■play, "Wormwood”, will be presented, j This undoubtedly will be one of the best attractions of the season and the advance sale of scats has been unus usually large. The play has never been to this city before. ' The stage effects, scenery, etc., are said to be beautiful and entire play is expected to be away above the aver age. IN POLITICAL CIRCLES. Meeting Next Friday Night is Being Much Discussed. There were no new developments In the local political situation yesterday, and the people are now patiently awaiting the mass meeting to be held at the city hall Friday night, when, it is thougnt, a ticket will be named in oposition to the one now in the filed, which was nominated by the Good Government club. The politicians are stirring around aka lively rate, and both sides already sr*m to think that they will win. The election occurs in about two weeks, and, therefore, the contest will not be a very long one, and the people are glad of this fact. Tne list of registered voters this year consists of our most prominent citizens, and there is but little prAti cal work to do. Only 102 negroes have registered, and they are of a class that will not sell their votes, and the contest, if it really comes, will be a clean one in every sense of the word. out the miners and railroad men on strike to help us. They assured us they were willing to come in thou sands, but they had not been called. The trust was more sure with other organized labor bodies against us. Our people finally became discocuraged and ordered a settlement. We saved the wage scale and the Amalgamated atiodatioa.” BRUNSWICK, GA„ WEDNESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 19, 1902. TAMPERED WITH UNCLESAM'S MAIL *■ —— NOW YOUNG WHITE MAN. OF AT KINSON, IS IN GLYNN COUN TY JAIL. HE OPENED LETTER ADDRESSED TO ANOTHER Solomon Lynn is in Serious Trouble and Will Be Given a Preliminary Hearing Before Commissioner Dunwody Today. Solomon Lynn, a young wane nmu. about 20 years of age, Is in the Glynn county jail, on somewhat of a se rious charge, that of tampering with the United States mails. Lynn lives at Atkinson, a station on the Atlantic Coast Lino, between this city and Waycross, and was brought here last night by Postmaster Brown, of this city, and United States Deputy Marshal Cason, of \vaycross. It seems that the young man has been opening mail addrressed to other parties and tne result of the case may be more serious than he anticipates. Recently a check was mailed from this city by Broadhead and Company to N. H. McDonald, Atkinson. This check was never received at the Na tional Bank, but a few days ago a check came in made payable to N. H, Keen & Bro. The cashier at the bank at once noticed that file eneck ha. been altered, and notified Broadhead & Cos., who said that they had never sent out a check payable to N. H. Keen and no such firm exists. An Investigation followed and it de velops that Lynn went to the postof fice and called for McDonald’s mail, which was giyen him. He opened - e letter, secured the check, made the alteration and then mailed it to the bank to be cashed. Postmaster Brown took up the mat ter and yesterday wired Marshal Ca son to meet him at Atkinsonn. The man was arrested and brought to tut city and will be given a preliminary hearing before United States Commis sioner Dunwody this morning. The man claims that he is innocent of the cnarge preferred against him, and says he did not alter the check. However, it is known to be his writing, in fact, he told Several of his frienos at Atkinson that he was awaiting some money from this city. In the preliminary hearing today a technical point will probably come up. It seems that Lynn was auuiorized by McDonald to get his mail, and In should take it out of the hands of the United States court. But still, if a man opens a letter addressed to an other, although auuiorized to get. same, he is violating tne law. How ever, Lyn can be held on two charges, that of foregery and tampering with tue mails. The young man was very much sur prised When iniormcd that he was wanted but. did not resist arrest. To Adjust the Loss. W, N. Hawks, of Atlanta, is in the city to adjust the loss recently caus ed by the destruction of several hun dred cross ties by fire on the Atlantic Coast Line wharves, and which were owned by tne Hunter-EIKs Company, of New York. A Correction. In the publication of Treasurer Smith’s statement yesterday, on > the date of October 13 appeared an item of street tax receipts of one dollar. The item should have read $lO and this correction is cheerfully made. Chanage in Weather. A noticeable change occurred in the weather conditions at an early hour this morning and the thermometer dropped several degrees. We may now nave a touch of winter. .

Aukland, November 18. —When the British steamer Slingamlte went aashore or t he Three Kings islands of the north shore of this country oh November 9 tnere were 180 persons on board. With some show of order these were all got safely off the vessel in four boats and two rafts. From tne latest accounts received here it is believed that t ue boats have arriv ed safely at some port, but one of i. rafts have not been heard from. The other raft picked up by the survey steamer Penguin had at first on board fifteen men and one wunmj. From the accounts of the survivors a story of terrible suffering nas been revealed. The raft drifted 50 mil -s during the four days it was at sea. All this time Its occupants were partly submerged. Four men went mad f on, drinking salt water and jumped over board. Three other men and the stewardess died from exhaustion >e fore the Penguin arrived on the scene. All the food on the raft was two apples, which were carefully lividetl and served out impartially. Tne f.tst apple was consumed on the se -oirl day after the wreck and when il.e other apple had been divided next lay the tortures of hunger and thirst lea the unfortunate people to suck each other’s blood for sustenance. Tne eight survivors had tooth marks on their arms. A PLEASING PERFORMANCE. The Boston Stans Entertained Audi ence at the Grand. The Bouton Stars were tne attrac tion at the Grand last night, under the auspices of the Lyceum association. The performance was strictly high class, every ntimebr on the program having been well rendered ana greatly pleasing the audience. The singing of Miss Beck ford seemed to lie the favorite feature. Her solos “Snow’’ and “The Auld Plaid Shawl" were exquisitely ren dered, and loudly encored. Her encore "KUlarney," was sung with great ten derness and expression. Miss Mayo's violin playing was a very fine and she also received much applause and was warmly encored. Miss Harvey, in her dramatic reci tals, made a decided nit. Her recital “Old Mother Goose" was extremely fine an., evinced great elocutionary and dramatic talent. Her oncore. Eugene Field’s “The Wind’s Voice” was splendidly rendered. Mr. Frank Reynolds in his humoi ous sketches and characterizations and as the author in the comedietta that closed the program was irresisti bly funny. He is a genuine humorist and kept his audience convulsed with laughter. His encore, a burlesque on grand opera, brought down the nouse. Altogether the troup deserves its repu- tation and presents a first class per formance. COMPLIMENTED THE CHOIRS. Fleming & Waff .Tendered Them Boxes at the Grand Last Night. Messrs.
