Latest picture of Colonel Gocthals, and his borne at Culebra on the isthmus.
The home of Colongl Goethals, the builder of the Panama canal, at Culebra Is admirably adapted to the hot
climate of the canal zone. Wide verandas surrounding the house allow the free circulation of air, and screens
completely shut out the mosquitoes. All government buildings in the canal none have those two features, and
because of the continued warfare against the mosquito, yellow fever has been entirely wiped out on the isthmus
and malaria is less common than ever before.

Chicago. 111., June 25. Settlement
of the "employers' strike," in which a
lockout was declared against 20,000
construction workers, is as far away
as ever. Attempts yesterday by the
union men failed to force the employ
ers to call off the lockout. Appeals
to Mayor Harrison, the county board
and the commissioner of public worka
brought no results.
The employers refused to consider
arbitration and assert they will take
no steps for a settlement until the mi
nor strikes declared on various build
ings are called off. The union men
say they have been treated unfairly
and charge the employers with endan
gering the lives of thousands of per
sons by stopping work on fire escapes
on loop buildings.
The union men are making prep
arations for a meeting of the Build
ing Trades council on Friday night.
It is believed some drastic action to
force the employers to arbitrate will
be taken. Letters and phone ' calls
urging the employers to withdraw the
lockout order frere received by mem
bers of the employers' association.
NO WORK OS HOSPITAL.
Work expected to be resumed on the
two bridges across the Chicago river
and the county hospital building was
not begun. The letter of Mayor Har
rison to the employers' association de
manding that work be resumed on the
bridges will be answered this morn
ing. It was expected almost 1,000 men
would returfl on the work for the city
and countys and union officials pre
dicted it would be the first step to
ward a speedy settlement.
Members of the Building Construc
tion Employers' association say they
want a speedy settlement, but say
they will not make the first advances.
"The union men were the first to
break their agreement,", said an em
ployer. "Officers of the district coun
cil admit there have been numerous
strikes during the last year. They say
they were not violations of any con
tracts. If calling various strikes was
not a violation of the contracts then
our order for a lockout was not a vio
lation. TIT FOU TAT, SAYS EMPLOYER.
"When a few union men go on a
strike it causes us great loss and an
noyance. All our appeals are useless
and we must bow to their will. We
finally became tired of a handful of
men ruling the majority and we start
ed In to give them some of their own
medicine. You can see how quick
they are to rush to the city and coun
ty officials for help when they are
given a taste of their own medicine.
"They can charge us with endanger
ing lives and acting unfairly all they
please, but we know it is not true.
We are doing just what they have been
doing for years. We are going to run
our own business and we are willing
to pay them the biggest wages paid
in "any city in the country."
O'DO.WELL ADMITS STRIKES.
President Simon O'Donnell of the
building trades council is making ev
ery effort to bring about an adjust
ment. He admitted "technical" strikes
had been called on buildings, but said
the men were urged to return by the
Officers of the council. 1
"We understand the viewpoint of
the employers exactly," he said. "They
are looking at the situation from their
side, but they do not consider our
rights. We have agreements and con
tracts, and we try to live up to them.
We expect them to do the same. Two
wrongs do not make a right, and by
them calling a lockout because sev
eral of the unions struck does not
make their action square. Even if
several of our tradeB went on a strike
andr violated their contract, that is
! no reason why they should commit a
wrong and work an injustice on thous
ands of innocent men and their fam
ilies. We will arbitrate. We want
to do so as quickly as possible and
