Union Lende s in Philadelphia Seek Arbitration j City is Forearmed. 1 Philadelphia, Dec. 23, The execu tive committee of the local branch of the Amalgamated Association of Street and Electric Railway Employes is to day considering the next move to be made" in the .controversy between the motormen and conductors and the Phlladefphla Rapid Transit company, In which the men demand higher pay and readjustment of hours. ' The local union on Saturday night placed the en tire matter In the hands of the execu tive committee, with power to call a strike If approved by the International board of the union. Prior to the meeting P, J, Shea, in ternational vice-president of the asso ciation, said there was only the remot est chance of a strike before Christ mas, if at all.' The strike talk, he said,- is entirely confined to the direc tor of public safety, Clay. "We have not been talking strike," he said; "we have only been talking arbitration. The men, of course, have grievances which they want adjusted, but we are not disposed to work a hardship on the public, or to Inconvenience it In any manner. Further overtures will probably be made to the company to day." The executive committee, after two hours' session, adjourned until this afternoon. None of the members would discuss what had taken place, but It is understood the committee Is awaiting replies from the international executive board of the association as to what future action the local union shall pursue. President Mahan, of the association, is reported to have left Chicago to-day for this city to take charge of the local situation. Mr. Clay, director of the department of public safety, has giken great pre cautions to guard the trolley compa ny's barns.. All firemen and policemen have been ordered to remain on con stant duty until the situation clears. Extra patrolmen are stationed at all the barns. Expecting a strike, the traction com pany has a large force of men quar tered at a suburban park, ready to take the places of. all men who may leave the service of the company, TOO MUCH INDIVIDUALISM. President Hadley Addresses Berlin Students on American Character. President Hadley of Tale uinverslty delivered a lecture Saturday night be fore the stuednts of the Universitv of Berlin on chancres in American character. He described the nation's philosophy of life as overfavoring the well being and comfort of the Individ ual and thoughtless of the interests of society as a whole. As a result there are rash marriages and consequent di vorces. He reproached theSiespa- pers as searches for sensational news and not sober guides of public opinion. TREAT ESTATE INVENTORY.
