WHOLE STATE MAY BE TIED UP (Continued fnm First Page,) its employes, and so relievo itself from its obligation thereunder, there would bo no objection on the part of such olfleers to the employes forming a un ion similar to that existing among tho employes of this company. A majority of thu employes In Providence, however, are determined to hold the company to Kb obligations under such agreement, snd, so long ns a single employ Insists, his rights are absolute and the company Is with out power to release itself from the torms of the nsreement, Under the elreumstuneos, there Is but one possible course open. Tho Rhode Island company cannot change tho situation, and if the employes of this company persist In forcing thu Issue, and a struggle Is to come, it must continue until one party or the other Is exhausted. Had this company any prejudice or disposition to oppress union labor or do anything to disrupt Its organization there is ample opportunity for exer cise of power other than in Provi dence, and It is well known to all the employes of this company that the of ficials, from the president down, have always been disposed to 'reat the men with Justice, and many occas ions will testify to this. Tho relations between this com pany and Its employes have oeen mont satisfactory. To . the best of my knowledge there exists no .Ussntlsfac'. tlon over wages, conditions of employ ment, or otherwise. Therefore, io cause loss and embarrassment over ft situation developed In connection vi;h another company with which we have nothing to do ran only result in tio loss of positions of those who ,nro leaders, and in the possible reem ployment of some of those whrrstrlks, starting at the bottom of the list." At a time when the tabor mnrket Is over-stocked, when thousands of com petent men are seeking work, the com pany takes this opportunity to try to dissuade Its employes from making a serious mistake In attempting to med dlo with a situation of which they know nothing, except through mlsrep. resentatlon, pertaining to another com pany In another section' of the coun try, to prevent their being used as tools to accomplish an end In which they are not interested, for such ac tion as is In contemplation can only he attended with disaster, discredit un ion labor, cause loss to the company, far greater loss to the employes, and distressful Inconvenience to an inno cent public, resulting In no possible good to anyone. Yours truly, JOHN K. PrNDKUKORD, Oeneral Manager. What Mnnnlx Says. Charles W. iMInnlx, chairman of the Jrlnt board of control, which board, report has It. will meet here this morning, said, when seen last evening, that he had sent out no call for a meeting of the board and that to his knowledge no meeting would be held today. The only way In which a meeting of this board could be called, he said, would be for tho national officers .to recommend It. Up to a late hour last night, Mr. Mlnnlx said, he had ' re j celved no communication to that ' ef fect. In any event, he said, It would take fully twenty-four houis to gather the members of the board In confer ence and this only after he had Issued tho call. From this statement It ap I pears that no meeting of the board will be held during toeay. Mr. Mlnnlx said that to the best of his knowledge, no further change had" developed In the situation between the trolley men and the company. The Strike of 1002.

" SOON TO ESCHEAT TO STATE Wilmington (Del.) Deposition May De prive State of $2,200 and Forty four Years' Interest. One of the strangest cases that has come before the. local probate court will come up for a hearing probably about Thursday of next week. It In volves the estate of a negro whose name ns known here was Spencer Bor.- den and who died here In 1S64. lie left an. estate of $2,200 and no heirs could be found, so the money remain ed In the bank. Several years ago, as no heirs had yet been found adminis tration papers were taken out, so that In accordance with provision of the law the estate might escheat to tho state after five years. Now after forty-four years there have been found persons who claim to be the heirs to the estate which has had considerable of an Increment through long deposit at Interest in the bank. Papers were filed Ifi the case yes terdny afternoon for Attorney Bdmund P. Helllngs of Wilmington, Delaware, whence hall the heirs.. , Officially the papers ask thnt the court hold a hear Ing for the purpose of ascertainment of heirs to the' property. Along with this request are filed two bulky de positions, one from a Mrs. Virginia Tomllnson of 847 Market street, Wll mlngton, and the other from a negress by the name of Emallne Davis, who claims to be the sister of the deceased. The deposition of Mrs. Tomllnson states that Berden was a former slave and that he belonged to her great grandfather. His real name, she state, was Spencer Lingo, but his mother's name was Flora Burton, adopted from the family she worked for and that this became changed lated by him to Berden, which Is the name In which the funds stand In the local bank. Mrs. Tomllnson states that the dead man was her nurse when she was a child and that when freed he went north and the last she heard was that about the end of the war he' died somewhere around Boston or Hartford. The de ponent salth that she Is confident the dead man was one and the same with Spencer Lingo and that a sister of his, Emallne Davis, now living with her, Is legally his relative. The deposition of Emallne Davis states that she had a brother by the name of Spencer Berden and that he died north here sometime about the close of the war. The case will be heard la court probably next Thursday, although the dnte has not yet been set.
