tration, was arrested yesterday afternoon
by Detectives Morrisey and Howard and"

"Bates & Co., Broker.-." Crussraan was
handling the outside "ateerers," and Ed
warda and a brother of Crossman's were
the "inside men.
They alternated between the WasTiing
fin avenue south joint and another out
of-Lhe-way joint on Fourth avenue south
opposite the. Corn exchange. Crossman
was told, it is understood, a few days
ago. to have the city under penalty of
anest for remaining. He is said to have
defied arrest, and upon the detectives
meeting him yesterday he was locked up.
It was while gathering evidence for
their papers against these joints that the
two morning newspaper reporters of this
city pressed their inquisition too hard,
and one of them was locked up on the
charge of blackmailing. Nothing ever
came of the case, however.

volver by Edwards, Berrens gave up $30,
and was allowed to go free on condition
that he leave town on the lirst train.
Before all the arrangements had been
completed Detectives Hicks and Smith

WASHINGTON, D. C, April 29,-The

Much needed and generally abundant
rains fell over a large part of the Mis

valleys, but droughty conditions have
continued in the upper Ohio valley, mid
dle Atlantic states and over the south
eastern Rocky mountain slope. Rain is
now very generally needed over the
greater part of the Southern states, more
particularly in the eastern and western
districts good showers having fallen
over a portion of the central Gulf states.
A heavy snow storm interfered wifh farm
work in Montana, the Dakotas and Min
nesota during the early part of the wevk
and the high and drying winds of the
latter part in the central valleys and
middle Atlantic states were detrimental.
The temperature conditions in the South

east of the Mississippi were very favora

vorable growth in the Rocky mountain
and north Pacific Coast states.

stages of cultivation, some being ready
to be laid by in Texas .and Louisiana.
Winter wheat has experienced Improve
ment in Illinois and portions of Missouri
and is slightly improved in Ohio and
the middle Atlantic states. The crop is
reported to have suffered no injury as a
result of marked temperature extremes
of this and the preceding week in Kan
sas and Nebraska, where, however, in
some sections it is in nee-d of moisture.
Winter wheat is also in need of rain in
the central and upper Ohio valley, bo im
provement being reported from Indiana,
where a considerable acreage in the cen
tral part -of the state is being plowed
up. On the Pacific coast winter wheat
has made favorable progress, a heavy

COMPERS MAKES REPLY
ISSUES A STATEMENT REGARDING
CONTROVERSY WITH SHAFFER
President of American Federation
of Labor Defends His Remarks on
Settlement of tbe Steel Strike.
Which. It Is Claimed Head of
Steel Workers Criticised.
"WASHINGTON, D. C, April 29.—Presi
dent Gompers, of the American Federa
tion of Labor, today issued a statement
regarding the controversy between him
self and President Shaffer of the Amal
gamated Association of Iron, and Steel
Mr. Gompers says that his statement
made at the Federation convention last
December that the steel strike of last
year was settled on coiditions less ad
vantageous than could have been ob
tained was never challenged by Shaffer
and stands as the "historical fact in the
labor movement cf the courtry."
He says that on the 22<i" inst. ho
wired Secretary Williams of the Amalga
mated association asking if Shaffer reit
erated in his report his reflections con
tained in Shaffer's circulars of last Sep
tember. He simply tek g.aphed Organizer
Flynn to proceed imrrediately to Wheei
tng. Flynn was intimately associated
-with Shaffer during the strike. Williams
in his reply said:
"Shaffer defended the American Fed
eration of Labor and presented a modi
fied and abridged report of the circular."
Mr. Gompers concludes:
"I have not asked anyone to defend
the American Federation of Labor or
rryself before the convention of the
Amalgamated association and have no
desire on my part to do so, but stand
ready to go ttf Wheeling at the request
of Mr. Shaffer or the convention.
"I am desirous that the American Fed
eration of Labor and I as an officer
and a man have done our whole duty
wholly and faithfully, and if there be
and reflections upon anyone in the in
auguration or the conduct of the steel
strike of 1901, the blame must lie at the
door of the others than the American

general observation, and the men have
been supplied with Focial-democratic lit
erature of all kinds, much of \T?ifeh is
couched in markedly temperate language,
though the illustrations are somewhat
inflammatory. Arncng the latter is a
factory surrounded by a graveyard, while
a picture of the winter palace is taken to
mean an invitation to assemble May I.
These pair.p-hkts were printed in Oer
many. A sketch history of labor day In
Russia and other countries recounts how
the workman's movement in Russia '»

tablish ''liberty, equality and justice,'' «n
place of the present oppression of the
government and capitalists.

proceeds to formulate demands, including
ten-hour day, with the same pay as a<
present: a half holiday on Saturdays; th?
prohibition of the employment of chil
dren under fifteen years of age; the aboli
tion of overtime; obligatory insurance;
the responsibility "" of employers for in
juries and deaths; the extension of fac
,tpry and workshop Inspection; freedom to
strike, organ ize. unions, hold mceilT^gg
and control their own funds; the estab
lishment of arbitration courts, and trill
in open court instead of arbitrary arrersta
and banishment. The demands' also in
clude the re-establishment of the holi
days which the workmen were deprived
of by the law of June 2, 1597.
