WATERBURY, CONN, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1903.
PRICE TWO CENTS. TWENTY'SEVENTH DAY OF STRIKEBURPEE S HARSH TERMS VOL. XVI, NO, 53 i Men To Give Up Everything and Apply Personally To Manager Sewell. EVEN THEN ALL WILL NOT BE TAKEN BACK. Last Evening's Conference Was a Failure and Strikers and Company Are Still Far Apart Disappointment on Every Side at the Outcome of the Session. The conference that. was held last evening between Colonel L. F. Burpee, representing the Connecticut Railway and Lighting Co, the committees of the striking trolleymen and the Central Labor union, resulted in failure most dismal. Not only were all hopes of a settlement dashed to pieces, ; but ail ihopes of a settlement on the basis laid down last night were abandoned, and disappointment most widespread is one of the consequences. That such an of fer of settlement as "was made last night should come from Colonel Bur pee created almost a sensation. In the armory, on the streets, in the factories everywhere yesterday afternoon' and last night, a feeling had become gen eral that a settlement would surely be effected by which, the men could return to work without their pride Demg xm I ...

A local .officer of the went back on his friend, John Dillon ' militia, In speaking about the stay of of New Haven, who guaranteed yester- the Elm City soldiers in this city,' said: day that he would meet the men more "i ami sorry that the boys are going than half way, but has dispelled all wnmp v Thev hn.v anted finoiv dnr. hopes of a settlement, after raising the ' most sanguine expectations. The conference was held in the al dermen's room "in the. City hall.,. It lasted about, two hours, closing about 9:30 o'clock. It was certainly a -black night for the strikers after an afternoon of so much hope, but it was far blacker to the public, who expected that Colonel Burpee would meet the men with some that has been ibearing down upon the piiblic nerve for almost a month. t v As if in compensation for so mucn disappointment the strikers received a telegram fro" their national iieadquar " ters informins them that their cause has been indorsed and that on the way is a check for $500. This is the first financial aid : thev men will have re ceived from' their own national head quarters. They, have, been dependent upon local unions, which, ' however, have contributed about $800 weekly. As the men issued from the alder men's chamber f they replied when asked for tidings: "It's all off; we're further apart, than ever." 1 ' In opening the conference ; Colonel Burpee said he would have the men . remember that he had no power to set tle the strike,'that he was present mere ly as ithe representative of the com pany, willing to hear any offer of set tlement .and , to . bring about that end. John Collins of the strikers' executive committee opened for the men by stat ing the cause of their presence. ; Col onel Burpee then answered that what he had to offer was merely-that the company would, not consider any offer which included Barrett and Kelly, and that, ' assuming they are ; withdrawn from the contention, the company is willing to take back about twenty or twenty-4ive men and the others a.s soon as opportunity offered. He advised the men to accept these ; terms, and when asked what - guarantee they would be given that the rest of the men would be taken back later, he replied tnat they would have to depend upon the honor of Manager Sewell One of the men replied that he would .'first 'carrv the hnfl" ItPfrtro. i An.fi no- such conditions, and another wished it understood that under such considera tions Barrett and Kelly would not be withdrawn. This closed the confer ence. '; ' ; ; . v-' Meanwhile "rumors of a settlement having been made were rife, through out the city. Some of the strikers said the settlement was that all should re- turn xq wotk saturaay morninsr. includ ing Barrett and Kelly, at the old rate of wages and the old positions. Others said that Barrett and Kelly were ' dropped, and instead of, them, the de mand, for higher wages was granted . Thus they considered things were evened up on both sides. Others had not heard a word of any settlement having been made and were surprised it was made unknown to them. Still others said that it could have been made without their knowledge, that the executive committee went to work after the regular forenoon meeting and iney would not give anvthinc ont Those fellows won't tell a thing," said they. It should have been mentioned above that the conference closed with thanks from the strikers and thi Cen tral Iabpr body to Colonel Burpee for the part he has taken in the matter, and the colonel expressed pleasure at nhe oond'Wt of the strikers so far. A member of the executive commit tee said to-day that the meeting was the most unsatisfactory that has yet been held, that the offer of the com pany as made by Colonel Burpee was the worst that has been made so far, and that notwithstandmer the renorts In circulation last evening and- the general feeling of, the strikers he ex pected very little from the conference i Colonel Burpee ' had nothing to say except that thorp was nothing new. II? was told that the withdrawal of the military, combined with the re ports of the conference to be . held, created in the public mind a general feeling that a conciliation was at hand. He' replied that the two incidents had no connection whatever; that the au thorities ; who . ordered the withdrawal of the , military , knew nothing - about the intended conference. ; v ,v " ' ,.'..... , The members of the New Haven companies of i the Second regiment, who have been here since Sunday night, left for home on a special train consisting of six coaches and two baggage cars, which ' left .the Naugatuck station at about 10 o'clfcck this morning. , It is needless to say that the boys were, in jubilant spirits and were happy to know that they would be at home soon and could once ing itnejr .xy-. The deportment at camp could not be compared to the de portment of the boys while here. I have not seen a single case of drunk enness or disorderly conduct among them during the week.'; ' The following from the , New York Sun . was the cause of some talk among General Frost's staff to-day: ;; "In one respect the strike, at least has done a good thing. It has served to show that in order to ; cope with a really - serious strike, here or elsewhere in the state more discipline must pre vail in the ranks of the soldiers. The ranks are made ; up of a good" many union men and they have been openly in sympathy, with the .strikers. Many have worn strike buttons on their coats without protest from their officers. On Tuesday night ' some, of the men stood in a mob and heard vile epithets ap plied to - motarmen and ' saw them stoned, while they laughed and .talked with union men and never lifted ; a hand. 1 One motorman declared that he had been stoned by soldiers, , but the officers deny this. . This lack of disci- pline reached such a state that the offi cers . of the road had to ask that two companies be taken away from the car barns which they had been sent to guard and others sent in their places. These"reports y have j been .circulated throughout the state and they are be ginning to arouse some serious doubts in the minds of sober citizens and those who have property : as to whether the militia can be depended upon." ', The officers said this is nothing but rot, , Some of them ; bought buttons, and one of them wore his under, his dress coat, but they1 were bought mere ly as souvenirs. Some of the officers sent their' buttons home to their chil dren. .One officer said that he has never yet been with troops that did not sympathize to some extent with the crowd, but yet never failed to do their duty when called ' upon. ' The wearing of a button by a soldier does hot signi fy disobedience to orders. Then he told a story of an incident that . oc curred in the famous riots in New York during the civil war. A company of men refused to fire when ordered and the officer . withdrew them. Later. speaking to a fellow officer,' he asked him what he would have,done if his men refused , to fire. ; "I would have ordered them to cease fire; I would be ooeyed anyway," was the reply. : A drummer who travels for a whole sale house out west, stated to one of his customers here yesterday that the accounts of Saturday night's lawless ness and the subsequent events in the trolley strike were even more sensa tional than those in the New York pa pers. One paper had it , where the soldiers were walking over dead bod ies in the streets. The drummer had decided not to' visit ; Waterbury. for the present, when he received informa tion concerning the true state of at fairs. . '. .;.', ' A non-union conductor on one of the North Main street cars com mitted a breach of the peace yesterday. ' K. C. Pouard of Simonsville was out yesterday for the first time In some weeks, after a severe fit of illness. He is still very -weak and yesterday afternoon was passing along the road near the trolley terminus on North Main street when he was seized with a fit of coughing. The conductor jumped off his car and abused Pouard in a terrible manner, calling him names and winding up with an invitation to fight. Pouard was so weak that had: the conductor struck him he could not have defended, him self at all. ' He would have been com pletely at his mercy, TVhen he reached the home of (relatives in Pearsallville. he was so scared that he had barely Ftrensih enough left to tell them of the attack made on him. WANTS HIS PAY. :t Strike Breaker Brings Sui Against Trolley , Company e-Says There Is $12.50 Due Him and He wants it. fit John Marshall of New York, one of the strike breakers, who figured in the mix-up between two cars yesterday and who was later arrested on . a charge of drunkenness, was about town to-day and claims that the com pany owes him'' $12.50. Somebody told him it was up to Boss Farley to pay him,, but Farley is said to have given him the laugh. ' This afternoon he was looking up an' attorney to collect his wages. ' Marshall claims to hare taken ; but one drink last night and thinks there must have been knockout drops in it. He got it from a fellow on the run from Waterville. . Marshall stated' his case to : Attorney Bauby and after bearing the evidence the ma chinery of the law was set in motion. Constable Pryor was f dispatched to the car barn and placed an attachment upon the company's property.. This is the first civil suit that grew out of the strike. , While the militia was here it was impossible .to ascertain anything about the machine guns. To-day it was. re ported that each of , them had 8,000 rounds of ammunition. One of the officers saia .this was a very small sup ply, considering that one of those guns fires about 1,200 shots a, minute.' The strikers say that they are Very sorry the soldiers were called away so soon. They claim that fewer people j rode on the cars while they were here than at any time since the strike start ed and that '. the 'bus business . neve was better. The presence of the mil itia had a salutary effect upon people who think it fine sport to throw stones at the cars ; and on this account ene mies of the strilking trolleymen could find no mud to, hurl at them. y The daily loss: the company is un dergoing is beginning to excite th e at tention of business people. It has been estimated at various figures. To-day a well known, business man calculated it to foe about $1,000 a day. In this es timate he considered the company's pay roll, the boarding house main tained for the use ...of the non-union men and the expense of fuel to main-' tain the necessary power. At this rate the company has lost about $28,000. ' : '"Dewey," the newsboy, will not sell any of his papers to the strike-breakers. About 12 o'clock Dewey was standing in Exchange place selling ex tra editions of the New York papers when one of the strike breakers ap proached Mm and inquired, "Have you a World ?" "Yes." "Give me one." "I will not I wouldn't sell you one for any price." Dewey thens walked away and vwith a wise look said, when somebody asked ' him why he didn't sell the man a paper, "What do you think ? Do you want me to be 5 boy cotted for selling a paper to a scab?" s Two' women called into a; store in the eastern section of the city - last night, said, that they v were from New York v and asked the clerk if he had any objection to their waiting in his store for the trolley car. - The clerk politely told them that he had and would have as long as the strike con tinued. ; The women commenced to ply him with questions about the strike and finished by inquiring if the trolley men in New York had a union. This was too much for the clerk and he refused to answer. The women then departed., A deputy sheriff named Spoigel from New Haven thought ha was caught in a trap this afternoon Ivy some strike sympathizers. He went in to the toilet room in the court house building on Leavenworth street ami lacked the door after him. When he was ready to make his exit the lock refused to work, nad after working at !t : .fcr some time he concluded that he was hemmed in with no hope of escape except thrqa'i a wlniUV i th uort : sire of the bmid'ng. i He jjuc cetded In raising the window and the:i iimhed onto the sill and dropped to the ground. At;?r he picked him self .up and brushed the dust off his clothes he hurried arrund to the m.Vm entrance and looked iip Janitor Ma graw and inquired what it all meant. The janitor examined the door and found that it opened all right. An army of deputies who watched the per formance laughed at Speigel's predica ment and called it one on him. ! The members of Company F, . the Grays of New Haven, enjoyed a jolly good time at the Protector hose house last night. They held a mock trial, gave an t entertainment and had an elaborate banquet served. The mem bers of the fire company "and their friends were the invited guests of the evening. The mock trial was in the nature of a trial of a man charged with alienating the affections I of another man's wife. Two or three soldiers bor rowed dresses from residents of the Brooklyn district for the occasion and were the women in the case. There was. a judfre, a jury and half a dozen lawyers. .The trial was very interest ing and was replete with many amus ing incidents. The clerk of the court was almost mofoibed because he didn't pay the jury their money for serving. After .the trial an entertainment was held. Then an elaborate banquet was served, turkey, chicken, etc, being on the bill of fare. The liquids were de licious. It was 3 or 4 o'clock before the merry festivities came to an end. ; BACK TO ELM CITY. . New Haven, Feb 6. The five com panies of the Second regiment reached New Haven tit 11:50 this morning. Five hundred persons greeted the sol diers and the only demonstration was one of pleasure at their return, A HAPPY PARTING When the Sarsfields Said Fare well to the High School Kind Words From Prin cipal Wilby and Miss ; S. H. Cairns. Most pleasing, indeed, to the mem bers of Company C, Sarsueld Guards, Second regiment, O. 'N: G., must have been the reception which was accorded to them this morning by the pupils of the-High school as they were about to leave the school, where they have been staying during the week, for ... home. Cheer after; cheer rang out for Cap tain Donovan and the sturdy soldier boys. And in turn the members of the cnmnnTiT vhwrflil asrain - and aeain ?

As one teacher remarked. "No less deserving of praise is Captain Donovan for the fine discipline which prevailed among - the soldiers, .than is Principal Wilby for the strict discipline which was manifested in the conduct of the pupils." ' : Principal S. W. Wilby said: - "I am opposed to the placing of soldiers in school buildings when classes are in session, but I have only words of praise for the gentlemanly conduct and excel lent discipline of Captain Donovan's men. -. They caused no trouble," did. no damage, were very accommodating, and left the building in as fine and as clean a condition as it was when they entered. ' Since the first day one would not know that they were in the build ing except you saw one here and there." Miss Susan H. Cairns; who is a teach er In the , room next; to the assembly hall, where the men were staying, said: "Too much praise cannot be given to the soldiers for their admirable: con duct""There ( was not the least friction between them and the scholars. Not one single study was interrupted. The pu pils were as attentive and as studious as if the soldiers were rar away irom them. I complimented my scholars this' morning on their excellent W be- havior during the week and told them Woodruff.. . This bill makes it impos that everyone of them and every, mem-l sible - for the "Short - Line" i railroad, mer of the company was deserving of a gold melal for- their - fine,-.- deport ment.". - ,. ' . ; Before departing. Cantain Donovan presented Princinal - Wilby . and the school officials with a box of cigars and his compliments. The passenger traffic was about the same to-day as it has been since cars, began running. Two cars could com-' fortably carry all the passengers that rode at noon, the company's busiest hour. , ' There was a collision between cars on the Waterville line and the East Main street -line about ,11:20 last night. The Watervillte car ran plump ; into the' East Main street car and the mo torman of the former was thrown from the car to the ground. Several specta tors ran to his assistance, thinking he had been injured. They found him un injured, but in very "boozy" ? condi tion. He was quickly dragged into a car by Superintendent Wales and other employes of the erolley company and taken to the. car barn.-' It was not known whether or not he has been dis chargedas yet..

Two new states instead of three on this compromise the senat deadlock which has been kept up so long by Senator Quay bids fair to be broken. Okla homa will be one state; Arizona and New Mexico together will be the other, which will take the name Arizona, it is said. The arrangement contemplates putting jhe capital at Santa Fe, which would be a concession to New Mexico. It is said that a bill embodying this idea has already been drawn and that it may also provide for division of the new state when it has a population of 800,000 people, each of the nresetn trstrltoirfea becominjr state . SICK OF THE TOWN.

' BUSH OP NEW BUSINESS Some of v It Called , Forth By Water- bury's Recent Disturbance. ' ' Hartford, Feb 6. The last day for new business in the general assembly for 1903 saw .the heaviest rush of new measures for the season, i Mr Finn of Meriden presented a reso lution which provides that the mayor of any city City may .order closed all saloons, bowling alleys and billiard halls in case of a riot or public upris ing. : , , ;' ..; ' . Mr Bowen of Woodstock offered a resolution appropriating $10,000 of state money for the Law and Order league. v , ' Mr Hubbard offered a bill retiring alj officers of the militia at' the age of GO. In the house the bill repealing the Indeterminate sentence bill, passed two years ago, was defeated this noon on an unfavorable, report by the judiciary committee, i-:- ry; i!:.,:v,i'A ; ;; The bill prohibiting the marriage of f whites and blacks was defeated. : . In .' the ; senate an important move was made to-day in the New Haven- Connecticut ' Western railroad ' fight, ? when a bill was presented by- Senator the corporate name of ; the new rail road company Incorporated by S the Connecticut Western for the purpose of pushing through the old Tariffville- Springfield extension, to secure rights to pass over .the East Granby farm. The bill reads that no real estate shall be taken without permission of the parties interested " therein by any rail" road company which shall not have re ceived its franchise in a special char ter granted by the' generti' assembly As the "Short Line" is not incorpor ated by, a special ; franchise, the bill if passed Will block the long fought out , East Granby extension. . It was referred to the Judiciary committee. The New England protest against soft coal nuisance came up in a bill to amend the . public statutes so that any factory using soft coal shall not permit smoke to rise from its chim neys for more than five minutes at a time on a penalty, of $100 fine. At last night's meeting of the board of public safety the resignation of Su pernumerary Officer M. T. Kelly was accepted. Strikers Make Another Last Night's - ' ; -. - '.- ... """ , . ,- DETERMINED TO - FIGHT Exciting Meeting of the Strikers Held This Morning The Members Vowed With Right Hands Raised , to Never Accept the Terms Proposed Last Night or to Go Back While , a Strike Breaker Remains. The strikers' executive committee is sued the tollowing statement this after noon: ' ' "To-day, the twenty-seventh day of our stxike, finds the settlement o the present difficulties as far away as ever and the men firmer in their determina tion to fight this battle to a finish. - . "At the conference which took place last night, .the details of which are pub lished to-day in all the papers, was a very friendly one and brimful with good natured remarks on ' both sides. Briefly told, the offer of the company was this: If we would agree to-drop Barrett and Kelly out of the problem the company would' generously agree to take back between twenty and twenty five men, provided they made personal application to the general manager and he remainder of our eighty men would be taken back as soon as the company could make room for them. Under no conditions, Jiowever, would the com pany discharge any of the strike break ers now operating the cars. It is need less to state that the committee looked unfavorably upon such ' a proposition amshall refuse to entertain any over tures on the part of the company that would in any way lower our men. 1 We have at all times tried to have this dif ficulty settled .by ' fair" and honorable means, but up to the present time the company has" shown no disposition to act fairly in the matter. Up to the present itime we have been unable to meet any . of the " company's officials who have any power to settle the mat ten Colonel Burpee says he has not the' newer; to; settle the matter, acting merely as the company's lawyer. Main ager Sewell says the i company, has taken their stand and as far as he is concerned he can only recommend any suggestions offered. If this be true, we believe the time has arrived for the company to send some one here vested with authority , to settle the matter. v ' , "Our committee reported the result of last night's conference to the meet ing of the ' union at 10 ; o'clock 'this morning and' it was received in a tragic manner. One man stood up, -held up his right hand and swore that he would never, return to work for the company tinder the propositions submitted by Colonel Burpee last evening, and that under no conditions would he return to work while a single one of the strlke bfeakerg remained in ' the employ ' of the company.' - f ' "One by one the other men followed suit and as the last man finished his oath and determination, the pent-up feelings of the ; men gave way . and cheer after cheer rang i through the meeting hall. . . ( - ' . -'From the numerous accounts otf ac cidents reported each, day the strike- f breakers are evidently using their best endeavors to' help the company get rid of that $100,000 which Manager Sewell says has been allowed to help defeat us. Three accidents occurred yester day, and last night, none of ;which re sulted disastrously,1 but which might just! as well have if fortune had not smiled upon the participants. About half -past 11 last evening a drunken mo torman on car No 72 ran into car No 56 in Exchange place. The man was taken, inside- his car. and allowed to sleep it off on the seat Of course he was discharged and later was arrested by a couple of the sheriff's possse. .We understand he has now ensrasWl a law. yer to collect the money he claims the j company owes him. ' . Manager Sewell was a visitor at General Frost'g headquarters to-day and remained some .time. . Major William Marigold of the Fourth, regiment, a member of Brigadier-General Frost's staff, reported for dnty to-day. Major Marigold was for merly a printer here. , , J udge Peasley has decided not . to draw up a bill for compulsory arbitra tion in case of strikes. It wag more than he Wished to tackle; he said, and besides that a bill tor' the same pur pose i has been already filed from a local resident . One of the soldiers left town to-day taking with him a neat little black dog tied to uie end of a rope. - Waterbury could well afford to have made every member of the two regiments a present of a canine and still have enough curs about the streetg and some to spare. - A trolley car running through Union City at about G o'clock last evening at a high rate of speed struck a team in front of Alexander Sokoloski's saloon and demolished the rig. After the ac cident the car did not stop, but ran on to the terminus of the line. Edward French of Union .City was driving the team and attempted to cross the tracks in front of the saloon. The car was according to the stories of the affair, exceeding the. legal limit in speed. The wagon was demolished, the horse, was knocked down and French thrown out. He was taken to his home, where it was found that his injuries were not of a very serious nature. . Not a report of damage or disturb ance reached the military last evening. It was the quietest night since the be ginning of the strike, which is now almost a month old. Nevertheless, there were rumors of damage done. It was said that the military stationed at the car barn ran a car out on . the tracks and were unable to get it back until after considerable difficulty. An other rumor had it that the men made things very interesting at the barn for the non-union men, obliging some of them to decamp. But the gener al's headquarters heard nothing of these rumors, and the probability is that they, are merely rumors. Statement and Tad; About Conference, - ' . .... - . . . ,.; . ' ' NOW TO A FINISH. ' Some of Sheriff Dunham's deputies sport "we walk" buttons on the street. It is not at all likely that this is an in dication of sympathy with the strikers. It is safe to predict that the badge is used as a bait to catch the unwary. If the deputies can make the game work they will help the. strikers as much if not more than anybody else, fer it seems to be generally believed that the stone throwers are the worst enemies the striking trolleymen have to contend with. Judging from what can be heard on the streets, if acts of violence should be -resumed people will step into' the cars, and if it comes to that then the strikers, might just , as well throw up the sponge. , A large number of Waterbury belles fel highly Indignant at the governor for the stemmary order to the militia to leave Waterbury. They say thev should have had time to see their "fel lers" before they left , One girl has a watch, belonging to a , New Britain soldier; and the soldierjg in possession of a very valuable diamond ring whitrh the same lady exchanged with him for the timepiece, the understanding bein.s: that each should get his and her own back sometime before the boys were ordered home. . Several other snc-h cases have been reported, so that It wiir take a lot of correspondence to straighten out the complications caused by the sumniary withdrawal of the armed', men. ' n -; ;!'''."'; ' All the military excepting (wnpanJca A and G; have gone home, the Second regiment with the second section of the machine gun battery and the second section of the signal corps . returning to New Haven this-morning. General Frost and staff remains at the armory still. The general reported last night as being very quiet, not a report of damage or disturbance anywhere reach ing him. The car barn and the power house, were to-day as they were before the arrival of the military. The street.-? assumed their old familiar appearance and everybody, apparent, got down to work again, there bemg no' more "sights" to fee seen. ; But a few strag glers were left behind and the Dutch company's mascot, a yellow dog, wan abducted at the depot. The owner had a merry time of it and threatened to keep the train at the depot until bU yellow dog was produced. He did not get his dog,' however, probably on ac count of. there being fresh sausage at a private supper In the armory last evening. - THE YOUNG TRIAL.
