Chicago, May 4. The teamsters tin
ion offered yesterday afternoon to sur
render on conditional terms. Through
a friendly committee, the union lead
ers made a proposition of settlement
o the employers whereby the latter
should agree to take back individually
as many strikers as are needed to man
the wagons sti'l out of service. The
employers "turned down" the proposi
tion, but negotiations have not been
definitely declared off.
The story of the advances made to
the employers leaked out at a meeting
of the merchants at night in the Union
League club. The matter of settle
ment with the strikers was thrashec"
out thoroughly, and the unanimous de
cision was reached not to retreat from
the stand already taken.
The determination to bring troops

Col. Blunt, and Capt. John
T. Thompson, the latter in
charge of the small arms plant
at the arsenal, are at Fort Ix?aven
worth. Col. Blunt is chairman of the
army board which is conducting the
rifle tests, and Capt. Thompson is a
member of the board. The officers will
be absent from Rock Island for about
two weeks. The tests are for the pur
pose of determining changes in the
new Springfield rifle.
Since the orders were issued for the
trials the output of the small arms
plant at the arsenal has been very
greatly reduced. The manufacture of
a number of the parts of the rifle has
been entirely ceased, and a number of
men employed in the department have
been laid off to await the report of the
board and subsequent orders.
W. R. HEARST GETS JUDGMENT
C. A. Towne Claims He Had Contracts
to Write For Plaintiff. I
New York, May 4. Judgment for
$G.439 was entered in the county
clerk's office in favor of William R.
Hearst and against Charles A. Towne.
The judgment, which was obtained
by default, was taken on a note for
$6,000 with interest, given by Towne
to Hearst on Feb. 16, 1904, and pay-
able in one year.
Towne's answer to the complaint
was that about the time the note was
given he was engaged by Heart to
write a number of articles for the at
ter's newspapers, and that he always
has been ready and willing to deliver
the articles, but never was called upon
to do so.
