XVI, NO T31 SPREAD WRECK PROBLEM CUilO ire STRIKE QUIET THIS THIRTY-SEVENTH DAY Strikers in Good Spirits on Receiving Cheering News from Other Xowns--SeweII Calls on Men to Turn in Company Belongings -Papers Served by Constable CarmodyThe Finding , ' of Dynamite Cause of Considerable Discussion ; Strikers Pleased with Big Crowd at .Concert. ' The following dispatch put the striking trolleymen In the best of hu- , mor to-day: Boston, Feb 15. The Massachusetts electric companies, .controlling all the electric street car lines in eastern Mas sachusetts , outside' of Boston, have, through their subordinate companies, theBoston and Northern, and the Old ' Colony Street Hallway, granted the re quest of the employes for Increased , ' The decision, which was announced yesterday, affects 2,522 conductors and motornien,' . who are divided into; six classes or grades, the average increase for all being 12,8 per cent, or $154,667, based on last year's pay roll. ' 'Things are coming our way," said they,, "but we don't think the men in Massachusetts will -accept, the increase In that form. They object to being put Ingrades.- It is one of the most objectionable, features in trolley work. The men were paid.-from sixteen to twenty cents an hour and they strong ly object to being graded. They were opppsed to it all along and wo do riot think fhut these objections will be overcome by this increase, ihongh it . would make the wages of some of some of .them $2.25 a day. In fact, we know that they have passed votes against Increases in this manner. ! A graded payroll is, susceptible of mak ing trouble at any time., , It gives the company a temptation to have the work done by the low grade men and Of Coin's tTlO tllO-Vn,. mn.T i to that and then trouble results. One or two grades are bad enouarh. but six grades are out of the questions - The men will : hardly accept the increase in that way." , . Another cause of good cheer in their ranks was the great success of their , concert last evening ' It was the most positive proof of the sympathy of th public with their eau.se. Hundreds who had tickets, seeing the crowded condition of the house, went away and did not ask for their money. Mr Dill worth.: chairman of the national exec utive committee, said it was the great est' demonstration, of public sympathy In a case of this kind that he has ever seen. In cities twice the size of Wa terbury where concerts': and such' W ,?nt.'Wre given for the bene fit of the strikers, while the people ral lied to . themn-larsre . 'numbers,' it was ttothincr In comparison to the concert given last evening. The town Aorr,P,i wild vith . enthusiasm and eagerness to help the strikers. ; 'v The situation to-dav was like what it lias been rill rln r' if li nAct .... t rrjv - quiet. So far the attempts of the cit izens' committee have brought about no , understanding between the com pany and the irien, but the latter feel sure of winning in the end," no matter how remote that may be. ; TEey say that the action of the Winchester and Torrlngton company and that, of the Massachusetts companies in raising ' the employes wages must have a good' effect upon the local situation, because , the latter companies are practically controlled by the samev capital that .controls the Connecticut: Railway and Lighting company. , . vv , .The reports of dynamite being found on or near the trolley tracks furnished ft good dear of discussion and conyer- . sation among themeri. Their general opinion is thaflf dynamite was found It was found by those who were Instru mental in bringing it to town or by those who had placed it near the tracks. They say that anything the size or , color of a stick of dynara ite "could hardly be seen on the tracks in the night time by a motorman or a conductor from the platform, of ka car that is rushing a,Iong at the rate of not less than eijrht and j probably twelve or-fifteen miles an hour, unless he had previously known where to be on the lookout for it. They refute the general inference that , the explo sive was put, on the tracks by any of their number and some of them are willing to wager anything reasonable that not one in a thou how to explode dynamite with safety to himself. They say that one empty car has more influence in - bringing about a settlement favorable to them than a ton of dynamite found on the tracks. The company would feel the effect of empty cars far sooner than !t would the shattering to pieces of one single car by dynamite or any thing else. In a word, they intimate as plainly as possible that If. dynamite was found on the tracks it was put there by the non-union men. ; ; , Since Saturday evening ' the cars xvere hardly Interfered with within the city limits. Saturday night a-car was stoned in the Brooklyn district nnd some windows were broken. There . was slight interference in the suburbs. This morning Constable Carmody served papers collectively upon . the " ' vuiuuuiiiS liiciu iu leiurn to the company certain property such as badges, switch keys, punches, buttons passes and .things of that kind. The -men, or a great many of them, said tlipy had no property that belongs to the company exeeot the - hnttrvna -n " ' " vviw.ikj VTA their uniforms. Badges, such as they wore on their caps, punches and pass es, they paid for, and therefore they belong to them. Even the gilt stripes they wore on their coat sleeves denot ing their -term of service, some of them paid for.- The object of this, they say, was to have the men call individually at the ofHce so that they could be "seen" by the officers of the company to induce them to return to work. But if such was the object, the men decided to frustrate it by voting to report at the office in a body and then return what ever property they retained unpaid for. A few new men came to town Sat urday evening. All new men are paid $2 a (lay with their keeping, and those who came on the first batch are grad ually going away. The officers of the company are endeavoring to find board ing houses for the men "and in a case or two were successful, but only for a while. Friends of the strikers' have been keeping their eyes open in this respect and, those who have been watching this feature , of the strike have had many a laugh.' Usually the non-union man represents himself as a factory hand.- k , , The stage hands at Poll's bought about thirty concert tickets for, them selves, but on seeing the great crush surrendered them to the committee in charge, for the use of the public. Ev erybody, it seems, Is with the strikers. , Sheriff Dunham and his staff of dep uties left yesterday, the sheriff deter- mining there was no further use for the men here. The executive committee of the strikers issued the following statement to-day: And still another day, the 37th, with the men in high old spirits over the success of our concert. It is pleasing to us to hear tliat the Massachusetts trolley boys haye been granted an increase in wages averag ing about 12.8 per cent this shows that theys evidently have a fair company to deal with at least. ' The,; enemy swooped down on our unsuspecting camp this morning in the shape of a constable, who demanded all of t the property belonging . to the company in the shape of punches, Uadges, keys, , etc. This gentleman was received In a kindly way, his posi tion ; being easily : seen by us, and. after his business had been stated he was given a rising vote of thanks. Our overland system is doing a rushing business i pending the arrival 6f the? automobiles. At the morning session of our mem bers to-day - a - unanimous vote of thanks was tendered to the public of Waterbury for the very generous and flattering, assistance , tendered' to ; us last evening at Poli's theater. 7 Followingyis a copy of the paper served; upotf the ,' men by Constable Carmody: - - ' Waterbury, Conn, Feb 14, -1903. . Sir: You are hereby notified that all switch keys, badges, punches,' buttons, and passes for employes belonging to the Connecticut Railway & Lighting company, issued to you or now in your possession, must ''; be . returned, by - you to the office of the company,1 at No STl Bank street, Watei-bury, on or be fore 3 o'clock p. m., .Tuesday, Febru ary 17, 1903.

ENCOURAGE COTTON GROWING England Alarmed at Her Dependence ' Upon' United States. ,-' . ' New, York, Feb 16. The Journal of Commerce ' says to-day that cotton spinners in England seem thoroughly alarmed at their dependence upon the United States for their cotton supply, this alarm being sharply Intensified by the present relations between, the sup ply and demand for raw cotton. The opinion is unanimous that, the culture of cotton should be encouraged In the British colonies I and possessions, ft At an ' influential meeting at Manchester, arranged by the British Cotton Grow ing, association, the lord mayor! said. It was of supreme importance that every possible effort should be put forth, not' alone , by this association , but also the government with a view to the growing of cotton in Africa, and If possible in the dependencies. The almost unlimit ed capacity for the production of every commodity in the states on a gigantic scale was -shown nowhere more forcibly than in the growth of cotton, said the lord mayor. , One state aione, that of Texas; had an area more than double tbe'areft; pf Great Britain i i The states were the most ' powerful competitors, and the states were likely to be more powerful in the future." The fixed aim of those engaged in -the cotton' Indus try was ultimately to consume, on the spot all the cotton grown on the plan tations. , . ' Sir. Alfred Jones said he could not share In the alarm which .existed In some ' quarters. It was merely a mat-; ter of t wisdom to look out, for the ex pansion of cotton growing districts, particularly in., English colonies. No one could object to the Americans keeping their cotton in their own country, , but it was a great object to secure that, there should, be a constant supply for Great Britain. -' - 1 The following resolution proposed by Alfred Emmett, M: P., Avas adopted: 1 "That, in view of the frequent dis organization and consequent loss to the cotton ; tra de of the . United Kingdom owing to the uncertain supply of the raw material, it is ; incumbent ,on -all those interested in the prosperity of the industries' of this country to use every effort to increase the growth of cotton.''
