Workmen at the World's Fair fintili
Strike According to Pro*
Building Trades Couneil Claim They
Are Not Receiving Fair Treat
president Higginhotham Says the
.. Matter in Dispute Was Settled Two
Tears Ago.
CHICAGO, April ii.—fa obedience to
the order of the bniluing trades council,
issued after a conference that lasted
until a late hour of the night, 4,000
union mechanics employed at the
world's fair grounds quit work—or
-fratlier failed to go to work—at8 o'clock.
^The trades represented are the carpen
ters, paiuters, ornamental iron workers,
bodcarriers, tin and sheetiron workers,
cornice workers, stoamfitters. gasfitters,
Electrical workers, tile workers, mosaic
Workers, fresco painters, lathers, hoist
ing engineers, marble cutters, gravel
roofers, and other smaller trades. The
bricklayers, stonecutters and plastertirg
are not involved.
Everything Was Orderly.
Htgginhotham Not Dismayed.
President Higginbotham was not in
the least dismayed when he heard the
men had gone out. He said he was
sorry that the men had determined to
go out, but the fair was a gigantic
enterprise which no labor strike could
seriously affect. Every place would be
filled and that soon. The question of
employment of union labor only, which
the building trades council wanted to
reopen, President Higginbotham said,
was permanently settled two years ago,
when it was agreed between the
council and the fair officials that there
should be no discrimimnation—that
union and non-nnion men should be em
ployed alike. Now, 20 days before the
completion of the fair, the council asks
to have" the matter arbitrated on as if it
wefe a new subject He thought the
work would not be greatly delayed, but
if it should be the people would know
where to place the blame. He antici
pated no rioting, no bloodshed. The
fair had ample police protection. and
work would be pushed.
Electrical Workers Join.
As the representatives of the strikers
went into the grounds they were met
by the electrical workers, to the num
ber of 1,500, who had decided to qnit
work and who were leaving the
grounds. They passed on to the outside
of the big fence and mingled with the
1*crowd alreadv cnllentad tfrwwa' As tHa

Claim Broken Faith.
The men claim that the council of ad
ministration of the world's fair has
broken faith with the allied trades upon
the arbitration question, and that the
outlook is for further violations of
agreement on other points. Consider
able correspondence has passed between
the officials of the trades union and the
world's fair authorities, and the result
being unsatisfactory an order was is
sued for the men to strike. v*
Early in the morning the men began"
to gather at the entrance to the world's
fair grounds, but few of them passed
through thd gates. Instead they formed
in groups at each of the entrances, and
»s fast as workmen approachcd they
were t&ken in hand by the pickets and
(asked to refrain from going to work.
The importunities of the strikers were
generally successful and only a small
percentage of the thousands of me
chanics employed in the construction
of the "White City" began their daily
tasks when the whistles blew for the
commencement oi work. There was no
violence whatever, and beyond an occa
sional muttered threat there waa no
indication o( any.
Expected a Speedy Settlement.
The men had brought their kita of
tools with them in anticipation of a
speedy settlement of the fficulty and
most of them sat quietly aronnd dis
cussing the situation, leaving the work
of negotiation to their leaders. The
pickets were scattered up and down the
streets for several blocks and each man
as he approached was quickly apprised
of the situation and asked to stay out
side the grounds. In most cases the^ re
quest was heeded and the new comer
joined the groups on the sidewalks. The
force of police and Columbian guards
which had be6n held in readiness had
nothing to do beyoud keeping the gate
Way always ciear.
Probably 88 per cent of the trades in
teres ted did not go to work, and many
men of other trades who were not di
rectly interested, knocked off work to
await the result of the trouble. In ad
dition to these it was said that most of
the non-union men and railroaders were
ready to quit if the strike waa Sot
speedily tei tied.
Invited to a Conference.
At 10 o'clock, however, a messenger
came from the administration building
of the world's fair inviting the repre
sentatives of the strikers to a confer
ence. '1 he invitation was at once
accepted, and forenoon wore on

Some Mistake About It.
Soon after 10:80 the labor leaders who
hnd gone into the grounds to confer
with the officials returned, and it was
learned that there lmd been a misunder
standing somewhere and that the
world's fair officials had not desired a
conference. This termination of the
mission of their leaders caused some
bad feeling among the men, bnt

nnion mounted a box and addressed
the men. advising them to go
home until their demands were com

straggling men about the grounds.

work were refused admission to the

result waa the men walked out.
Many Return to Work.

A Belief That the President Will
Keep the flenate Awhile.
WASHINGTON, April 11.—Acommittee
of the senate will wait upon the presi
dent within a day or two and inform
him that the senate is ready to adjorm
unless he has further business to sub
mit. It is not believed, however, that
the president is quite ready to permit
the senate to adjourn just yet and
while it may be that he will fill only at
few of the important offices at his dis
posal, it is the general impression that
tbs president expects to have an im
portant communication relative tc
Hawaii ready to submit to the senate
within a few weeks. It is pointed out
that Mr. Blount has harried away
to the islands for the purpose of
securing information for the guidance
of the administration, and unless it is
the president's intentitn to take some
action upon the subject of annexation,
so much haste would have been un
Would Be No Extra Session.
One senator said: "When Mr.
Blount was first commissioned as a
special envoy to Honolulu it was not
the president's idea to call an extra ses
sion congress. Since that time it has
been repeatedly asserted that an extra
session is to be called
Now, if the senate committee which is
to call on the president this week is in
formed that there are no further
communications to be sent in,
it will be taken as an indication
that a September session is
certain and that the Hawaiian ^question
will be postponed until then. But the
preponderance of opinion among sena
tors on the Democratic tide is that Mr.
Blount's report will be in the hands of
the president within three weeks, and
that by May 1 a treaty of some sort,
either for a protectorate or fur annexa
tion, will be submitted. In that event
almost every senator will leave Wash
ington with the firm belief that his
presence here in a legislative capacity
will not be required before next PecgBl
