WASHINGTON, May ir>.-The strike or
fler issued by the executive board of the
International Order of Machinists goes
into effect at 7 o'clock tomorrow Presi
dent O'ConneU Ba j d tonight that about
60,000 men will be affected. The order In
structs the men to refuse to go to work
Ul all shops where notices granting the
nine-hour workday have not been posted
at 7 o'clock. The officers of the asso
ciation expect that in many cases a set
tlonrent will be reached during tomor
row and that the men will return to
work during the day or Tuesday morning.
"Word came today that all the firms in
St. Louis and also all those in New Or-
Jeans had acceded to the demands of the
men. Scattered reports from other cities
favorable to the men also were re; eive.!.
The estimate now is that 3> per cent of
itho employing firms have signed. At
least 26,000 union machinists were work
ing nine hours or less when the question
■Was taken up by the association.
The 50,000 men who will suspend work
are scattered all over the country. Tho
national officers are hopeful that speedy
settlements will be reached in most of
the Eastern cities, but they fear a more
prolonged struggle on the Pacific coast..
The Tnion Iron works at San Francisco,
Where the battleship Ohio Is building,
end other large concerns, are preparing
to resist the demand.
Tn a number of the cities there are
questions pending between the employers
imd me n which may operate to prevent
decisive action tomorrow, but whicih may
tiled for or against a strike in h
flay or two. These include cities whe re
counter propositions have been male by
the manufacturers and where conferences
with headquarters at Washington may
toe necessary before action is taken. . In
these Instances compromise? may be
reached. President O'Connell received a
check for $1,000 from the machinists in
the [Wadhingt n navy yard to aid tho
men who strike. These machinists are
not concerned in the differences with em
ployers which underlie V.to, strike, but
in a letter to Mr. O'Connell they staled
their Interest in the triumph of their
fellow workmen and promised him that |
substantial financial contributions could !
be expected from them every week to- i
wards the support of those who will be j
out of work.

PHILADELPHIA, Pa., May 19.—About
2,000 machinists will go on strike in this
City tomorrow for the nine-hour day, ac
cording to John J. Keegan, business agent
in this vicinity for the Internationa! As
sociation of Machinists. There are about
6,000 machinists in the city employed by
about 150 firms. Of these firms forty
seven will go on nine hours tomorrow.
Committees of machinists wdll call on
the Baldwin Ix>eomotive works, Cramp
(Shipbuilding company, the Midvale Sl^il
works. Pennsylvania Iron Works c\Tm
pany and the Southwark Tron foundry,
winch firms employ about 1,500 m^n,
and which have not yet signified their
Willingness to grant the demands of th>
men. If the committees are not success
ful In their efforts, Agent „Keegan says
the men at these places who belong to
the union will immediately be called out.
It is expected, however, that only a
email proportion of the men employed
at the establishments named belong to
tho union and that, then fore, an order
to strike would not materially affc-ct
operations at those places. Three firms
in the city which arc working not more
than 11i11 ■ hours a day will not be ap
proached for the present. One firm is
pledged to arbitration and the other two
because of business relations cannot
give an answer to the men until June 3L
The German Machinists' union and the
[Amalgamated association, an English
organization, which are not affiliated
with the International association, havo
<lee uled to stand by the latter and their
members will go out whenever the In
ternational's men are ordered to strike.

(machine shops, now a part of th,e Allis-
Chalmers combine, today refused to -ac
cept the company's offer for a nine-hour

The 200 employes of the Scran Bolt
find Nut Works refused a liberal offer
of President Zenbender, because it was
at variance with the united demand of

It looks tonight as if all the S.OOO ma
chinists of Scranton, excluding the 100
men of the Dummuir Steel shops, will
be on strike tomorrow. The latter is
the Scranton branch of the Erie com
pany's shops. None of the Erie shops

At I'litlnflcld, N. jr.; 1,200 Machinist*
Will Quit Work. . .r o
NEW YORK. May 19.-At' PlainflcW,
JV J., it is regarded,that 1,200 machin
ists out of 1,400 employed in that city
will go out tomorrow morning. The
large shops there are the Pond Machine
company, Scott Printing Press company, :
Potter Press work 3, Aluminum Flat©
and Press works and the Campbell Press ''
works. The Pond company's- men will j
not strike, as their demand for an in-'
crease will be answered after the meet- '
ing of the directors June,3.,,., . '■
" There is a complicated situation at tr-o •
Potter works, because of religious be- !
lief. No work is done on Saturdays, be- j
cause the.management is of the Seventh
Day Baptist persuasion. Very little work j
is done on Sundays, because most of'
the men do not .believe in working Sun- I
days, but they are in the minority. The
cutting out of two days in the week '
makes it needful for the men to woik !
longer hours each working day in order j
to get in a week's work. The result
of this is that even if the company yields :
it will be necessary to make a separate '
working schedule for this shop. " j
Newark, N. J., is expecting ' a strike :
in the morning.. The high plants are '
Watts, Campbell & Co., Mines & Phil- j
lips, the Crocker-Wheeler company and '
the Harrison Marine Engine company.
The Crocker-Wheeler;company agreed to f
compromise with the men at nine and !
•a half hours. It is ' possible ' they will'
grant the other half tomorrow. :
Predictions Thai It Will Rival Bug
land's Engineering Trades' Bolt:
NEW YORK, May 19.—Whether tomor
row is to see the beginning of a ma
chinists' strike which shall rival the one
in the engineering trades in England,
which played so important a part in
the opening of the markets -of the world
to the Americans, is problematical.
Leading labor men and representatives
of the leading employers say today that
they thought pending questions would
be settled without any general strike.
It is intimated that J. P. Morgan might
be appealed to and requested to use his
influence wilth the great industrial com

preventing any trouble in much the same
manner as the great coal strikes have
been prevented in the past.
Meetings of machinists were held at
various places in this city today to dis
cuss the local situation. After getting
reports from all the "shops in the met
ropolitan district the general report was
that shops employing about half of the
machinists in the greater city would
grant the nine-hour day and V&£ per
cent, increase of wages and that not
more than .4,000 men at the outside would
go out on strike. Among the New York
shops, where strikes are regarded as a
possibility, are the B'arr Machinery com- j
pany, where about 250 machinists are. :

machinists, and the General ■ Incandes

SAN FRANCISCO. May 19.-Brig. Gen.
*rederick D. Grant, who returned from
Manila on the Sheridan, speaking of the
condition in the Philippines, said:
"Everything is settling down and we
are getting at the rial work of govern
ing and teaching the people. Their pe
culiar national character makes tbtm
hard subjects for the present. You must
remember that they were originally pi
rates; that their civilization is of the
fourteenth, not of the fifteenth century,
and ihe tendency to brigandage is so
bright among them that it amojnts to
a disease. In many districts the paying
of tribute to robbers is considered tho
regular thing, no more out of the way
than taxes. Our task now is to give
them good government in their muul.ipa.i-
Itles; in protect them against them
selves, until they learn a taste for or
der and then withdraw gradually from
active interference, leaving the towns
one at a time as we see that they can
be trusted, but having our troops within
striking distance for some time afttr we
leave any district, so as to insure against
a relapse. We must expect much rob
bery and brigandage and pillage and
even murder for a long time.
It is surprising to tee the results that
we have obtained in getting law and
order into these people in the few
months of comparative peace. My dis
trict included the. provinces of Bulucan,
Pampango and Bataan, with a population
of 600,000, all Tagulo provinces, and con
sidered the most lawless in the islands.
Now there is not a rubber band in the
whole district, a condition unknown in
the whole history of the Filipino people.
We have in every town of the district
a local government under a local civ

Gen. Grant expressed the opinion that
resistance of the insurgents was pro
longed by the events in the United States,
attending the last presidential cam
CAUSE OF RESISTANCE.
"The property-holding class in the isl
ands Is composed of persons who are
pretty Ignorant and who could not under
stand the situation. They are naturally
our friends, but were under constant
pressure to throw their fortunes In with
the Insurgent cause. When they
heard that a purty was coming
into power in the United States
which was in favor of withdraw
ing the troops and giving up the govern
ment to the insurgents they did not kn >w
what to do. Jf they stood against the
insurrection they would be likely to lose
their lives and property as soon as we
turned our backs.
"With that kind vt people, timid, Ig
norant, afraid to espouse a cause that
might lead to their destruction and with
the most unscrupulous element in the isl
ands in charge of the native Torres, thero
was no use in going ahead. I stopiped
.active operations after the nomination
of Bryan and tried only to protect my
"The cessation of activities had a de
plorable result—the slaughter of inno
cent people by the lawless element, part
ly sanctioned by the insurgent leaders.
"Some of the figures, which I can
vouch for in the case of my own district,
are appalling. In the province of Paru
panga they killed over 1,000 people be
cause t\hey would not swear allegiance
to the insurrection. In one narrow dis
trict over 300 people were buried alive,
possibly by Ladrones, but much more
probably for the same cause. One man,
Lorenzo Cain.iycr, killed eight men In
one clay within easy reach of my quar
ters. In the cases where the perpetra
i tors of these outrages could be proved
j I acted severely.
"After the election, when the natives
learned that we were there to stay, the
' real end of the insurrection came."
The surrender of Lieut. Gen. Mariano
I Trias had more effect on the Philippine
' mind, Gen. Grant thinks, than the manl-
I festo issued by Aguinaldo. Gen. Grant
: will proceed Kast in a day or two.
SULTAN OF JOLO.
j GEN. BATES SAYS HXS SUBJECTS
WANT PROTECTION OF
SAN FRANCISCO, May 19.—Gen. J. C.
Bates, who has just -returned from the
j Philippines, is quoted in the Examiner
as giving the following account of his
. dealings with the sultan of Jolo and
: the manner in which he obtained the
1 sultan's good will after the Islands had
' been ceded by Spain.
! . "The Mohammedans who recognize ths
: sultan of Jolo," he said, "differ from
. the other natives of the islands in the
i fact that they prefererd to have the pro
tection of a strong nation, and frankly
(declared that if the United States did
i not want to take them they would appeal
i to some other great country,
"As commander of the department of
; Southern Luzon, it became my duty to
i treat with the sultan of Joio. I found
his people to be very much like o.ir na
-1 tlve Indians, and it seemed to mo that
! it would be better to get them In an
I amicable mood than to go in for an
I Indian war. Gen. Otis put $10.00:- in sil-
I ver at my disposal, an ! after they had
given all the concessions that the gov
; ernment wished I made a few presents,
I but they did not get a cent until they
I had come to our terms. There is nothing
i extraordinary about these people. They
! are willing to fight and Co not lack in
j bravery, but they have little knowledge
of firearms and are not as formidable as
the Indians of this country.
"After my first consultation with the
sultan, the people of Manila were ontaz
-1 ed to learn what had been accomplished,
! and it was declared that the United
| States had in six weeks secured from
the natives more than the Spanish -were
able to get In three centuries. All we
wanted for a beginning was the pacifica
tion of the country and to have it so
I that Americans may travel freely with-
S out danger of molestation. This we se-.
| cured by continuing the methods inaugur-
I ated by the Spanish, who had been pay
-1 Ing the sultan of Jolo almost as much
money as we do without obtaining any
guaranty of peace in the island.
ALBANY WAS VERY QUIET.
First Day of Active Operations of
ALBANY, N. V., May 19.— The incidents
of this, the flrßt day of active operation
of all the allied lines since the strike,
have been very quiet. There were two
features. The first was the two men sh ;t
by national guardsmen were burled this
afternoon, but the pouring rain kept
away the thousands of sightseers that
otherwise would have 'marked the occa
sion with their presence.
The departure of the Twenty-third
regiment early this morning was the
second feature of the day, and serm ns
from many city pulpits aided in closing
the incident. The funeral of Leroy
Smith was devoid of incident except that
it was attended by city officials and
directors of the street railway people.
At the funeral of William Walsh there
was nearly a rust. While the services
were proceeding In the church the crowd
that had been unable to gain admission
saw a uniformed soldier coming down
the street. Instantly the people were in
a state of ferment. A rush was ma::e
for the unlucky soldier, but a few wise
heads held the cjowd bggfc for a minute,
while several others advised i"he man, to
run. Arguing that , discretion" was the
better part of valor, he did run and
avoided trouble. The. starting out of the
first car o-f the Inter City line shortly
after noon today was the cause of a
demonstration. Pistol 3 were fired, flags
•waved, torpeddes plsced; on the' track
and exploded, the hVotormen and con
ductors wore flag 3on their coats and
fully 200 men and women fought for the
privilege of the firfet ride. When the
conductor got the caj started and rang
up the fares he found he had seventy
three passengers, where "usually fifty is
a crowd. Withm an -f.our so many c irs
were running that the monotony kept
people from riding for the sake of nov

the dangers of a strike on the part of

paramount !esue before the Alabama
constitutional convention, which met ts
i hero Tuesday, Is the elimination of the
negro vote. Other matters to bo con
; sidered are: Smaller counties for the
I state; reform in the judicial system; the
! elimination of local lfglslatlon from the
i work of the general assembly and school
! taxation. .
j There is a disposition to do away with
, the chancery court* as useless, the pres
ent constitutional common law courts
having the same jurisdiction.
The stand of Gen. William C. , Oate*.
| one of the delegates for a modified suf
fragist clause, Is widely discussed. He
said: :...-...•,... -...,,.
"i am far honest elections, which are
i the basis of our government—stato and
| federal—but which cannot be uniformly
held in Alabama except by a revision
I end purification of the elective franchise
| by extirpating therefrom dense Ignorance
"The suffrage clause should not. In
terms, exclude anyone from the electlvo
franchise on account of race, nor requlro
an educational or property Qualification,
I but Intelligence and good character
j should be made the test. No felon, no
i man of notoriously bad character, n i man
I who has not paid his poll tax, no man
1 who has ever sold his own or bought
I the vote of another, nor any one who
cannot read Intelligently or understand
: when read to him any section of the con
■ stitution should be allowed to register aa
i a vote. And In order that no injjsf.ee
I be done by registration to any one legally
entitled to vote an appeal should be given
I from such decision to the courts.
"The disfranchisement of the whole ne
gro race would "be unwise and unjust.
j The negroes constitute a large majority
!of our state population, over WO.WO.
j Among them! are many honest, indus
! trious and good citizens, capable of fair
-1 ly understanding the Issues of a cam
i paign and for what they would be called
; upon to vote. Suoh men are patriotic.
When volunteers are wanted to fight our
battles they furnish their quota. Some
have acquired property and pay their
taxes but the great mass of them are
nropertylesa and ignorant of the funda
mental principles of government and the
ballot is a weapon which they know not
how to use for their own goo or for
the use of any one else.
"Who will not uy that Booker T.

hundreds of others are specimens of
what they can do If they cnoose? All can
meet proper qualification. Shall they be
