IDLE MEN
ARE MANY
Philadelphia Will Have
40,000.
IN BUILDING TRADES
Almost All Operations Now Under
Way Will Be Suspended By
End of Week.
Philadelphia", May 2.-More than
7,000 men In the building trades went
on strike here during the day. This
action affects directly 1,000 additional
workmen, and should the strike con
tinue a week building operations will
cease and over 40,000 men will be
rendered idle.
Two of the strikes have an important
bearing on all other branches of the
building trades that of the Brother
hood of Carpenters and the strike of
the Hoisting Engineers' union. The car
penters demand CIO cents an hour for
an eight hour day. The hoisting en
gineers, ask $21.00 for a week of forty -eight
hours. "
The carpenters were in session until
3 o'clock in the morning voting on the
strike issue. ,The membership of the
brotherhood numbers 3,000 men and
that of the Amalgamated Association
of Carpenters 500. The two organiza
tions, while not affiliated, have made
the seme demands. The Hoisting En
gineers' union has alwut 150 members.
Strikes were also inaugurated by sev
eral smaller unions, including stone
derrick men, marble cutters and the
plasterers' laborers, all of whom de
mand an increase in wages.
Other Strikes In PeiiKu j lvnnlu.
A dispatch from Pittsburg says that
the boiler makers, ornamental and
architectural housesmiths and station
ary hoisting engineers in Pittsburg and
Allegheny have quit woffe, the employ
ers having refused to concede their de
mands. Six hundred boiler makers
and 4K helpers are idle. They demand
$t per day and eight hours work, an
advance of 50 cents per day ami a re
duetion from nine to eight hours u
day.
The Brotherhood of International
Boiler Makers and Shipbuilders ha
been notified, and where men are em
ployed by the same contractors in oth
er cities they will be required to strike
in sympathy.
The stationary hoisting engineers
have been receiving 47!i cents per boui
and want 50 cer.is per hour. As many
of the engineers are employed by tht
American Bridge company It is thought
the strike will also affect the struetiira.
iron workers.
In the towns of Fayette City, Char
leroi, Bellevernon, Monosson and Do
nora, along the Monongaheia valley
building has lieen almost entirely bus
ponded by a strike of carpenters, brick
layers, stone masons, plasterers ami
hod carriers. The strikers are askiuj.
for an eight hour day.

Mttl Trouble In the City Some
; Strike Ip State.
New York, May 2. Few of the np
pieheuded big strikes have taken place
In nil the building trades the demands
made by the men have been met in n
friendly spirit, because there is a great
volume of business in hand. Iroi,
workers, shipbuilders and other 'me
chanics have also won out, and every
thing looks bright for the ensuing la
bor year. Even the threatened strikt
of engineers, which was to have para
lyzed traffic, has not taken place.
Six thousand day laborers employee
In the subway excavation, most o
whom are Italians, have struck fot
higher wages. In all sections of the
underground railroad where the exen
vating has not been finished the work
is completely tied up and is iikely tc
be for several days, as the subcontract
ora refuse to submit to arbitration.
The strike decided on by the Tean
Drivers' union for higher wages does
not seem to be prevalent in all sec
tions and trades of the city. While
there is some trouble among truck
drivers in various branches of trade
it seems to be confined principally tc
the drivers employed by coal firms and
dealers in building materials. . .
The following advices show the situ
ation np state:
May day finds Syracuse with Indus
trial concerns running at full capacity
and more building than ever proceed
ing with perfect harmony between em
ployer and employee. Wages in manj
lines were increased during the lnsi
month. There is but one strike or
hand, which began several weeks ago
In which 100 machinists are invoi""1
May day finds the members of tht
Carpenters' union in Schenectady om
on strike, together with molders in tin
employ of the Westinghouse works
The members of the numbers' uniot
have threatened to go until their de
mands for increased wages are met
The Masons' union are also talking ot
going on strike, and their demands art
being considered by their , employers
The Trades assembly hopes that these
troubles will be settled by arbitration.
A more peaceful situation in the la
bor world could not be asked for at
Amsterdam. With the exception of tht
recent strike of the Jack spinners
which has now nearly blown over
there has not been the least iutlrnatioi
of any differences between employe!
and employee.
NEW ENGLAND SITUATION.
Ho Serlooa Iphoval In Any Impor
tant Industry.
Boston, May 2. May day In New
England this year was marked by n
serious upheaval in any important in
dustry, the labor atmosphere haTing
been clarified to a large extent during
the past two months b." numerous ad
justments of difficulties or by the plain
drawing of a line of cleavage. While
many places report small strikes a
large number are in the building trades,
which has been more or less unsettled
for several weeks in numerous places
outside of Bostou.
Of the total number of persons on
strike In the New England states, esti
mated at 25,000, about four-fifths have
been out for some time. The great
strike In Lowell, carpenters' difficulties
on the north shore, strikes In several
factories In the shoe centers, a strike
In the Manvllle corporation in Rhode
Island (textile), quarrymen's trouble
near Lowell and minor difficulties
swell the number who have been Idle
previous to now to about 20,000.

Mi Hatti Dodge Finally Located in Bur
lington -
Montpelier, May 2. Mrs. P. S. Prior of
Barre telephoned Mayor Corry last even
ing regarding the dssappearanee of a
young lady named Miss Ilattie Dodge,
who left Mrs. Prior's five weeks ago for

and as Mrs. Prior had not heard from her
she thought that possibly the body said to
have beeu seen in the river might have
been hers.
An investigation was made and it It
was discovered that Miss Dodge is at
present in Burlington.

purely a matter of conjecture.

Dissatisfaction With
King's Trip,
SPIRIT OF PROTEST
Think King; Should Not Go Abroad to
Continental Cities Without
Cabinet Members.
Manchester, May 2. A dispatch today
says that King Edward's visit to continen
tal capitals is raising a spirit of protest
among the members of the government
who claim he ought not to be allowed to
go abroad formally and meet formal states
men unless accompanied by some member
of the cabinet. The dispatch hints that
several recent acts of foreign policy, which
turned out to be unpopular, were Initiated
by the King and not the foreign oitice.
DISSATISFACTION EXPRESSED.
The Granting of Licences in North field
Stirs I p Trouble.
Xorthfield, May 1. The action of the
license commissioners In granting two li
censes to M. E. Yarrington has caused a
good deal of dissatisfaction, but it is not
to be compared, with the feeling aroused
by the licensing of Michael Broggi whose
place of business is to be located at the
corner of Water and Wall streets in the
residential part of the village. The lack
of consideration shown the written protest
signed by twenty and more of the owners
of real estate w hose property is situated
adjacent to and in the vicinity of the
Broggi saloon Is the cause of bitter de
nunciation of the board.
The feeling is not against Mr. Broggi
personally but they protest against the
opening of a saloon in the residential part
o the village. Mr. Broggi Is to make al
terations ou the premises and will run a
hotel and a bar is to be run in connection
therewith.

DR. CONLAND
DIED TODAY
Well Known Brattleboro
Physician
TOWN REPRESENTATIVE
Was One of the Leaders in Drawing
Up License Law at the
Last Session.
Brattleboro, May 2. Dr. James Con-
land, representative to the state legisla
ture, died today, aged fifty two years. He
was Rudyard Kipling's most Intimate
friend.
Dr. Conland had been sick for many
weeks, and the physicians In charge gave
np hopes of his recovery some time ago.
Their patient's wonderful vitality, how
ever, kept him alive long after hope had
been given np. . Dr, Conland himself
maintained that he was to get well even
after his physicians had decided other
wise.
The doctor was an Indefatigable work
er, and it is thought that overwork
brought on the sickness which resulted fa
tally. During the winter, in his zeal In
his medical work, he paid too little atten
tion to his own health, riding long dis
distances without an overcoat.
Then, too, at the recent session of the
legislature Dr. Conland allowed himself to
do too much, impairing his health. He
was a member of the committee of tem
perance which had the framing of the new
license law in charge.
lie was born in Brooklyn, N. l., in
1851. He was graduated from the medical
department of the University of Vermont,
going to Brattleboro in 1875.
Dr. Conland twice represented Brattle
boro in the Vermont legislature, in 1884
and 1!'02. In politics he was a Democrat
and his religious preference was the Epis
copal church.

FISHING STORIES
ARE BIG THIS YEAR
Disciples of Isack Walton Have Good
Luck C. A. Averill Caught 4
Heaviest Fish.
The trout fishing season In Vermont
opened yesterday, May 1, and the disci
ples or Isaak Walton and his gentle art
were out in plenty all cay long. In Barre
probably more fishermen started out yes
terday morning than lor any year previ
ous, and the catches which they brought
back with them were nniformly large.
Not for many years has the trouting sea
son opened so well.
While the conditions on the first day
were not particularly favorable the condi
tions for two weeks previous were all that
could be desired. The dry spell had low
ered the water in the streams to a point
far below what it generally is at this sea
son. This fact made the fishing good.
The largest trout in weight that has
been reported is one, weighing seventeen
ounces, caught hy C. O. Averill in an Or
ange brook. Mr. Averill consequently
won the !.j split bamboo hshirg poleotrer-
ed by Reynolds fc Son for the largest
fish in weight brought to their store be
tween li and It o clock last evening. Tlie
trout was a beauty. Mr, Averill also
caught some other big ones.
The next largest one reported was caught
by D. Winfred Smith, a young boy. In
length the fish was ahead of the prize
winning one but unfortunately in weight
it lacked one ounce and a half of being as
heavy as Mr. Aver-ill's.
E. L. Scott was exhibibltlng yesterday
afternoon sis speckled beauties, each
weighing 10 ounces, which he caught In
Wiliiamstown. He took them to Rey
nolds' hardware store to be compared for
the prize to be given for the largest brook
trout caught on May 1st.
Clarence Wood returned with two which
weighed twelve and eleven ounces. He
also caught several other large ones.
A young fisherman named Sector was
fortunate in hooking a trout which weigh
ed ten ounces. This fish came from the
Wiliiamstown Branch. Sector said that
he could account for t!00 trout caught in
that stream yesterday.
W. G. Reynolds and R. A. Hoar were
out with their rods and both were success
ful. Mr. Reynolds captured 00 of the
speckled beauties and Mr. Hoar got near
ly as many.
Harry A. Goodrich brought home nine
good-sized trout.
E. O. and E. H. Holmes went as far as
Calais and were rewarded well, as they
returned to Barre with a basket of 50,
among which there was one that measured
nine and a quarter inches.
B. W. Hooker and Ilarley Cutler went
to Orange and returned with ;0 tront
each.
ONLY FAIR LUCK.
Fishermen Keport Too Cold Weather in
WHUamatown.
Wiliiamstown, May 2. The disciples of
Isaac Walton were abroad early yesterday
morning and all the streams In and about
town were visited early and often. Owing
to the change In the weather the fish pre
ferred to remain in out of the cold so that
few of the anglers returned with full bas
kets. The best catch reported so far is
that of R. E. Spencer, who brought in 10
of the speckled beauties.
The subject of the morning sermon by
the pastor at the Baptist church will be
"God's Engraving" and in tne evening
"Are These Things Great or mair.'"
The Bible school meets at noon with the
Baraca class for young men and the i'nil
othea class for young women.
