Of Transport Workers in British Isles, Following Owners' Refusal. London, June 11. Three hundred thousand transport workers . in this is land will give up their jobs, and all foreign and coastwise shipping will be tied up indefinitely, if the union men obey the orders of the general council of the Transport Workers' federation, which last night sent telegrams to every port in England. Scotland and Wales, calling for a national strike. The ship owners yesterday decided to reject a compromise, the terjis of which the "government has been attempting to arrange. The principal points of the governments proposals were a general organization of the employers to treat with the unions, and money guarantees by both aides as insurance against vio lations of agreements. The employers maintain that their in terests are so diverse that any organiza tion embracing all would be impossiblr ; they consider the cabinet's proposals, particularly the financial feature, im practicable, and set their faces strong ly against giving a labor monopoly to the unions. The country has not been thrown Into a panic by the calamity which threat ens, because there is general hope that comparatively few of the men will re spond to the leaders' manifesto. Xote of disaffection are reported in several cities. If successful, the strike will be the most disastrous of the labor revolts which have kept the country in a tur moil for the past year, disturbed bus iness and strained the diplomacy of the liberal government in keeping the good will of its labor allies. The real ques tion being fought out is the recogni tion of union labor and the cause of the trouble, which has already cost business and wage earners hundreds of thous ands of pounds, is a stevedore named Thomas, who refused to join the union. The employers declined to discharge him and the dockmen stopped work. They took advantage of the occasion to de mand a general readjustment of terms from their employers. DIFFERENT APPORTIONMENT For Second District Republicans Than For State Convention. Bellows Falls, June 11. George H. Gorham, secretary of the Republican dis trict committee, announces that for the convention of the second district to be held at White River Junction on June 28, the apportionment has been made on the basis of the vote for governor in 1908 and that by the state committee on that of 1010, so there will be a differ ence in the number of delegates from a good many towns to the two conven tions, especially from the large towns. Chicago, June 11. The Kentucky con tests, involving sixteen delegates, were heard before the Republican national committee all this morning, and a de cision in the delegate-at-krge content was expected to be made this after noon. It was agreed that the contests in the first, second and fourth districts would be submitted and decided on the same arguments as in the case of the delcgation-at-large. "The seats of only two delegates-at-large were contested. Ornisby Mcllarg piade the opening statement of the ease for the Roose velt forces, and Judge E. C. O. Rear of Frankfort presented the argument. As the result of yesterday's hearings on the Indiana contests, the committee added 12 more delegates to the catalogue of the Taft strength, all the contests being decided in Taft's favor. ith the 72 delegates comprised in the southern contests decided lat week in the Alabama, Arkansas, Florida and Georgia cases, yesterday' pains make a total of 84 delegates added to the Taft forces by the work of the national com mittee. And with the 201 instructed and uncontested delegates credited to hint, they bring Ins present total on the tern pomry roll up to 28.). A laiire proper tion of the contested seats among the 14 ra&or, still to he p.issed on by the c.mmitte rerresint delegate instruct d for Taft, the precis number biing the subject of much dispute. The cases decided yesterdu.' were .'lose of the Indiana delcgation-at lurg t, tour in number, hoadcu bv Col. Hirry S. New, including former V icc-JresMeiii l-air banks and the district delecatio-is of two each from the first, th rd and thir teenth districts, The contest in the fourth district was withdrawn and the comrutto; confirmed the two sitting (Taft) de'ejrutcs. - The real fluhtof the day in the com- n ittee cam ? i.e t on the contest over the delegates-at-large, where it had b"cn expected the committee was unanimous in giving them to I aft, but over the seating of two Taft delegates from the 13th. or South Bend, district. Attempts of the Roosevelt attorneys to introduce certain affidavits declared bv them to lear the signature of a majority of the delegates to the district convention at Bend at which the Taft delegatea were chosen, precipitated the only sensational interchange of the day and occasioned a sudden reversal of the committee's vote which' was not explained to the satisfac tion of the Roosevelt men. Senator Borah taunted the Taft men about it, telling them they changed front because they were scared. "The worst scared lot of them I ever saw," he said. "What has happened? Whom have you consulted? What has come over you? Whence came this revela tion?" he demanded. The Taft men denied that they were scared or that any special light had broken in upon them; they insisted that their first vote, against admitting the affidavits, was because of their desire not to delay the hearing by the neces sity ot giving the Taft Mde an opportu nity to answer them or to create a pre cedent which would be embarrassing in later cases. Their reversal of the vote was coupled with a specific declaration that it was not to be regarded as a precedent. In this form the Roosevelt men all voted against it. So the committee heard the" affidavits, with verbal testimony in contravention of their allegations, and then voted to seat the Taft delegates, 00 to 14. This- was not the first battle of the day, however. Before the Indiana cases were taken up the committee came near a turbulent scene. A motion by Sen ator Crane of Massachusetts, to post pone until Wednesday the case of the fourth district of California in accord ance with the request of former Sen ator Dick, the Taft contest leader, met the opposition of the Roosevelt forces. The case already had been called, and the attorneys and contestants were in their-places when this question arose. Mr. Dick argued that a similar delay had been granted last week in the Cal ifornia case at the requests of the Roose velt people and he thought he was en titled to the courtesy. During this de bate the fabled "steam roller" figured in the discussion. Some of the Taft men resented mention of the political juggernaut, which they said was a fic tion; whereupon Mr. Borah later inti mated that the Roosevelt people had no sensitiveness on the subject; in fact rather liked to talk about that meta phorical machine. In the roll call on the California post ponement, the line up was 38 to 13; the personnel on each side being substantial ly the same as in the other divisions on factional lines. . RELEASED ON PROBATION. John Daniels Paid Back Insurance Mon ey and Pleaded Guilty. Middlebury, June 11. In the case of the State vs. John DanielB, taken up at two o'clock yesterday afternon, the respondent 'was sentenced for embezzling $07 from the Xational Life Insurance company of Montpelier to not less than 12 nor more than 15 months at the house of correction at Rutland. Sen tence was suspended and he was put in the hands of probation Officer Olm A. Smith. This was because Daniels made full restitution to the company and pleaded guilty. Daniels was former ly of Bristol. " In the case of Albert II. Hier vs. Er nest J. Bodcttc, in which judgment by default was entered by the plaintiff on the first day of the term, the entry of judgment by default was stricken off and the cast continued at the request of Attorney James K. Donoway of Mid dlebury. J he third jury trial of the term was begun with the case of E. S. Sterling vs. O. M. Ford. They are from Gran ville and the plaintiff seeks to recover over $100 for services rendered while operating a farm fori the defendant in 1908 and 1009. SHAW GUILTY, SO IS WOMAN WHACKED WITH WRENCH. John McLane, Winooski Hack Driver, Had Close Call. Winooski, June 11. John McLane, who drives a hack for Joseph Cdette, re reived a knock in the back of his bead about midnight Sunday, administered by a colored soldier with a heavy wrench. When McLane had reached the neigh borhood at the top of Weston's hill, his hack passengerless, the soldier immedi ately began the assault. With 'the wrench he gave McLane a blow which might have killed him, but for the top of the carriage, which lessened the force. McLane, upon receiving the blow, jumped to bis feet, blood flowing free- from his wounds, and took itter his assailant. In the mix-Up which followed, McLane succeeded in getting the wrench from the soldier and the latter made his esvape and hi identity is still unknown. .Mel ne drove back to the stables with his clothes saturated with blood and the wounds were dressed by Dr. Burdick.

One of the very enjoyable features of the day was the music rendered by the Misses Jessie and Annie Pithie and the .Shirriffs sisters. OLD RESIDENT OF MONTPELIER. GRANGE FIELD DAY IN BARRE Julius G. Scribner Died This Morning Was Long in Business. Julius Gilman Scribner, an almost life long resident of Montpelier, died at his home on Prospect street in that city this morning at 10 o'clock of hardening of the arteries. . Mr. Scribner was 70 years of age, hay ing been born on April 20, 183ti, in More- town, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Kbenezer Scribner. He was brought by his par ents to Montpelier in his infancy and had resided there most of the time since.

For a time thereafter he was engaged in the wallpaper business in Barre. On October 12, 1854, he married Sarah G. Cole of Walden, who survives him; also one son. Fred J. Scribner of Man chester, X. II., and two grandchildren. The funeral arrangements have not been completed. GAVE BANQUET TO 50. Boston, Juno 11. Arthur W. Shaw was found guilty of the larceny of about rJ.lMKj from two .Maine shoe manulac turing concerns by a jury in the superior criminal court to-day, while a verdict of guilty of receiving stolen money was returned against Mrs. Georgia Stuart. Sentence will be pronounced later. The cases were given into the jury's hands yesterday afternoon following the summing-up. Col. Joseph W. Spaulding spoke first in defense of Mrs. Stuart. Attorney James H. Yahey followed with an argument in defense of Shaw. As sistant District Attorney Thomas D. La velle followed for the government. Col. Spaulding argued that Mrs. Stu art merely acted as a faithful custodian of the property Shaw put in her hands and had no idea that he stole any of it, if he did." Attorney James H. Yahey said: "Shaw is accused of stealing funds of a company he owns half of and to which he has made complete restitution, stripping himself to the skin so that he could not now buy a plate of baked beans without borrow ing the price. "Amick does not now think Shaw was a dishonest man. Director Howland has told you so. Shaw has shown all along that he was trying to save the business from ruin." Attorney Yahey referred to. the letter Shaw sent to Mrs. Stuart and the dis covery of which resulted in the police lo cating Shaw in Los Angeles. "That let ter was stolen by somebody from the mail," said Attorney Yahey. Then he referred to the pa'sage in which Shaw wrote: "I am good for 20 years yet and will pay up my creditors dollar for dollar." Attorney Yahey also argued that had Shaw wished to steal he would not have purchased bonds to run off with, but would have taken the cash. Those bonds he purchased with the consent of Amick, Yahey declared. "Shaw is being tried for stealing bis! own money. He should not have been tried. He has committed no criminal offense. His intent is the only issue." Assistant District Attorney Lvel!e in his argument for the government said : "Shaw has been described as a remark able man. He is the smartest, most calculating witness that ever took the witness stand in this court. He has advanced a defense built upon lies and fabrications. The defense is no better than the man who invented it in a Los Angeles jail." M. H. S. COMMENCEMENT. Emily Hopkins, Tony Lamperti and Geo. Stevens, Winners at Prize Speaking.

Brown, Carroll & Co. now occupy their new stoneshed off Depot square, the con tractor who had the work under con struction since March 1 having complet ed the finishing touches on the structure last Saturday. The new shed is 20a feet long and 04 feet wide, with a height of 50 feet. It is among the largest stone manutacturing plants in the city, and certainly none can boast of more modern and up-to-date equipment. The work has been carried out under the direction of Contractor Frank Lagasey of Water Diirv. . The shed is easilv accessible to the Central Yermont tracks, and shipping fa cilities are further increased by a siding which extends through the east end of the shed. Provisions have also been made for stone teams to enter the build ing and make on exit without turning around. On the north side of the shed proper is located the office, a. two-story building with dimensions of 18 and 24 feet. The structure is admirably suited to office purposes and had been furnished with modern office furniture. It is electrically lighted and heated from the boiler room in the shed adjoining. Just north of the office, the citv is installing a hydrant so that ample fire protection will be af forded Brown, Barroll A Co., as well as other plants surrounding. The south Bide of the office building is finished into a drafting room. The stoneshed is equipped with the very best machines and other stone man ufactitring accessories procurable. An electric traveling crane, weighing 75 tons has been recently installed, the crane1 being the product of the Smith, Whit' comb &' Cook foundry of this city. The new air compressor was made by the Ingersoll-Rand to., and has a capacity if 534 feet per minute. Motive power for the machine is furrfished bv a m-h. p, Westinghouse motor. Two Smith, Whit- comb & I ook polishing wheels are pro pelled bv a 35-h. p. Westinghouse motor, A 5t-h. p. boiler has been installed for heating purposes. The blacksmith shop' is equipped for four fires. Iron grindstone frames sup plied bv the Smith, Wliitcomb A Cook ( o. receive their power from a 10-h. p. estinghouse motor. The same com pany furnishes latest saw benches for the boxing department, and these are operated bv 2-h. p. motors. I he com pany has two surface cutters working, with provisions for others. A noticeable feature of the new plant is the method adopted in wiring, the building. All wires are enclosed in pipes, thus avoid ing the danger of fire from defective insulation so common in many manuiac turing plants. Brown, Carroll & Co. occupy their new quarters for the first time under the most propitious circumstances. The firm began doing business in a Black well street shed some two and one-half years ago. The growing demand for its output soon made .it evident that larger facilities for supplying its dealers must be provided. Soon after work on the new plant was commenced, thecompany sold its Black well street shed to the Ronx Granite Co., which took possession May 1. In the new shed three and one-half gangs can be worked conveniently and with a large number of orders to be filled the com pany is now running almost to capacity. The Total Membership of the Order Was Shown to. Be 2,640, Being a Net Gain of 61 Officers Will Be Elected Late This Afternoon. McKENZIE ALEXANDER. PROTEST IMPRISONMENT.
