NEW HOPE OF PEACE
Conference on Strike Almost
EXPRESS MEN AN OBSTACLE
Concession Tjy Express Managers
Opens Way to SettlementStrike
Spreads to Immber-Yards.
Assailant Fatally Hurt.
CHICAGO, May 22. After a conference
lasting for three hours, representatives
of tne Teamsters' Union and the Employ
ers Association declared a,t midnight that
the prospects for the settlement of the
strike are excellent and that the end of
the trouble may be looked for at any time
within the next 48 hours.
The stumbling block in the negotiations
is the declaration by the express com
panies that none of their striking drivers
will be taken back under any circum
stances. All other terms submitted by
the employers to the strikers have been
accepted. The managers of the express
companies declared late this afternoon
that, -while they would re-employ none of
their drivers, they had no Intention of
keeping a "blacklist" and there would be
no objection to any driver who secured
a position with some express company
other than the one by which he was em
ployed at the time he struck. He would
be given a position, It was asserted, If k
vacancy existed at the time of his appli
cation. This phase of the strike waa the
only matter discussed at the conference
tonight and in the opinion of all present
It opened a way for the settlement and
the negotiations will be continued to
President Shea of the Teamsters Union
said tonight, after leaving the conference,
that he considered the chances good for
a settlement of the strike, and Levy
Mayer, for the employers, expressed
Iiumbermen Will Spread Strike.
Despite this move for peace, the Lum
bermen's Association is preparing for an
extension of the strike. At a meeting "of
this organization tonight it was decided
that tomorrow all the 65 firms composing
the association would compel their driv
ers to make deliveries of consignments to
strike-bound houses. Twelve of these
firms enforced the order today and be
tween 200 and 300 of the drivers quit work.
One hundred lumber teamsters quit
worK early today. Seventy of the total
were employes of the Edward Hines Lum
ber Company, at the head of which is ex
President Hines, of the Lumber Dealers'
Association. Mr. Hines has been par
ticularly prominent among the employers
In the recent negotiations for a settle
ment. The cause, as heretofore, was an
order to deliver material to firms boy
cotted by the teamsters.
An incendiary fire at the yards of the
Hlttenhouse & Embree Company Is sus
pectedby the firm to have a connection
with the strike. Last night fire was dis
covered In three different parts of the
yards, and before the flames were extin
guished several thousand dollars worth
of lumber had been destroyed.
B. B. Hooper, secretary of the Sash,
Door & Blind Association, said today:
"We do not propose to permit a nart of
the Teamsters' Union to work- and sup
port the other part on strike. It Is a case
of fight now with us. ; Everything points
to a complete tleup -of every branch of
building in Chicago until we can get non
union drivers to do the- work. This will
mean pol(ce protection for the drivers,
and If that is not sufficient, the necessity
for troops Is Inevitable."
JUbrc Deputies Sworn In.
Tn order to cope with the situation
growing out of the spread of the strike.
Sheriff Barrett today began to add to his
large force of deputies. The police force
also will be augmented. A call for 200
more patrolmen for special strike duty
was made by 'Chief O'Xell today.
The recruiting of men to serve as strike
breakers has been resumed by the Em
ployers Association with Increased vigor.
Word was received In Chicago today that
200 men were due to reach here tonight
from Buffalo, and 300 more from Kansas
City. Cleveland and Cincinnati.
Members of a new grand Jury, which
was sworn in today, were instructed by
Judge Barnes to pay particular attention
to cases growing out of the teamsters'
strike. He referred to the frequency of
assaults and asked the co-operation of the
Jurors In freeing the city of crime.
Mayor Dunne was in communication
with Governor Deneen. Governor Deneen
assured the Mayor that the Xational
Guard would be available for strike pro
tection inside of two hours after a call
was made for hc services of the troops.
The Mayor realized that a call for troops
might have to be made any time.
Stand by Striking Children.
The arrest and prosecution of parents
and children connected with school strikes
following the use of colored nonunion
teamsters in delivering coal at public
schools, has aroused bitter feeling among
members of labor unions. The Federation
of Labor has adopted resolutions pledg
ing itself to stand by the striking chil
dren, to withdraw all children from school
and to aid parents who have been ar
rested. Deputy-Sheriff Shoots Straight.
After a crowd of strike sympathizers
had attacked Michael Fitzgerald, a spe
cial Deputy Sheriff, and followed him two
blocks last night, he turned on his assail
ants and shot and probably fatally
wounded Frank "Volker. 23 years old.
Fitzgerald was on his way to his resi
dence when he was assailed by Volker
and nearly a dozen otfier men. It is said
they taunted the Deputy Sheriff and
struck at him. Fitzgerald tried to get
away, and finally fired in self-defense.
Volker was taken to a hospital. He is a
union pressfeeder. When ho fell, his
companion ran away. Fitzgerald was

POWER TO REVISE RATES
Interstate Commissioners Give Opin
ions to Senate Committee.
WASHINGTON. May. 22. Interstate
Commerce Commissioners Francis M.
Cockrell and Joseph W. Fifer were
among the witnesses today before the
Senate committee on interstate commerce,
whose Investigation of railroad rates has
almost drawn to a close.
Mr. Fifer spoke of rebates and rate
cutting and said they were Induced by
railroad men distrusting each other.
Rates, ho said, should be made by the
railroads in the first place, but should be
subject to revision. He said that The com
mission could adjust a rate complained of
In accordance with rates on like com
modities in other sections under like con
ditions. He thought the adjustment of
the long and short-haul difficulties had
been left to the commission. He believed
that the power -of rate regulation, if
given to the commission, would not bo
exercised very often, as the roads would
be careful not to get Into trouble with
the commission. Mr. Fifer spoke of the
danger of Government ownership unless
the railroads were justly administered.
Ex-United States Senator Cockrell. of
Missouri, now a member of the commis
sion, said he would leave the origination
of rates to the railroads, giving the com
mission power to condemn a rate founa
to be unreasonable and to fix a different
rate in its place to take effect Immediate
ly. The railroads, he contended, should
have the right to appeal to the courts,
and the latter should determine whether
the railroad rate was unreasonable or the
commission's rate unreasonable. If Con
gress should enact a law to this effect,
he said, the courts would take jurisdic
tion over rates to the extent of deciding
such questions. He would make the rail
roads responsible for icing and other
charges of private car lines. Mr. Cockrell
cited a number of cases where decisions
of lower courts sustaining the commis
sion in rate matters had been reversed
by the Supreme Court. He did this to
show that the judiciary was divided on
these rate cases.
S. H. Cowan, representing the livestock
shippers of the Southwest, also appeared.
He controverted statements made by
other witnesses as to satisfactory rate
conditions and claimed that the cattle
rates were too high. He asserted that the
railroads had used diligence to bring men
here to testify as to satisfaction with
rates. He charged that these witnesses
may have come on passes, and that
it was possible that an intimation was
given them that it was better for them to
Chairman Elklns remarked that the
committee had summoned all the men
whose names had been furnished by Mr.
Bacon in the interest of the proposed
legislation, and that expenses had been
allowed all who appeared.
CONCESSIONS TO OIL MEN.
Santa Fe Officials Arrange Confer
ence to Rearrange Rates.
TOPEKA. Kan., May 22. The Santa
Fe will meet the oil-producers of Kan
sas and rearrange the freight rates on
oil. General Freight Agent Koontz
made the following announcement to
day of the company's intentions:
The rates will be brought out at a con
ference, which will doubtless be held within
a. week or ten days. At the preliminary
conference with the oil men the producers
were asked to prepare a statement showing
what market they wish lo reach. The pro
ducer shave been busy recently preparing
this statement- We cannot Intelligently pro
mulgate a. tariff till we learn what points the
producers will want to reach with crude oil
In the meantime we have been going over
the situation and have prepared figures, so
that at the coming conference we should be
able to tell the producers what can be done
for them as soon as thyr make known to us
what markets they want to reach.
NO TRACE OF DIAMONDS
Police Stop Chance of Sale, Suspect
ing Employe of Tiffany.
NEW YORK. May 22. No trace has
been found, of the three diamonds worth
$90,000. reported as having been stolen
about May 4 from Tiffany's workrooms.
All the detectives and police officials en
gaged in the case are maintaining the
closest possible secrecy, but It has been
learned that their efforts thus far have
been in the direction of closing all the
markets here and abroad where the thief
might seek, to dispose of the gems. While
these measures may prevent the sale of
the booty, they also greatly accentuate
the difficulty of detection.
If the gems already have been sold, It
is thought that they were smuggled
abroad by some one to whom they were
entrusted by the robber, and who Is un
known to tue police, for all even remotely
connected with the matter have been from
the first under a close surveillance, and
It would have been difficult for them or
any of their intermediaries to make the
least movement to which suspicion might
be attached without Immediately bringing
the police down upon them.
After gathering up the loose ends of the
case and examining the results, the police
are understood to have reached the con
clusion that the theft owed its inspiration.
If not its actual execution, to a profes
sional, who prompted an employe to the
deed, promising him a rich return for
practically little risk.
Philharmonic Society Concert.
It is rash when one Is under the spell
of Verdi. Bizet. Haydn, Raff and, yea,
even Von Weber, to say that a march, a
mere two-step, by a Portland composer,
awakened a great deal of interest and
drew tho only encore. Yet this is true
of the recital given by tho E. O.
Spitzner Philharmonic Society at the
Marquam Theater before a capacity au
dience, last night. The number in ques
tion -was a march entitled "On the
Sunny Side of Life," composed by Mr.
Spitzner. the director of the orchestra.
It has a pretty melody, suggesting sun
shine and singing birds, and a. r-r-rattle
of the dr-r-rums comes in at the right
moment Long life to the "Sunny Side,"
for it displays talent and tells a happy
message. The orchestra numbered 75
pieces, and the programme consisted of
orchestral numbers, violin solos, quar
tets, and one septet, all well played,
for in ensemble work the orchestra had
the assistance of several professional
musicians whose tone soon told. The
btage was crowded with young musi
cians, and their presence was in itself
an inspiration. The violin solos were
praiseworthy, for young: students.

Taft Suspends Bowen-Loomis
AUTHOR OF CHARGES TALKS
Newspaper Correspondent Relates
What Bowen Told Him at Car
acas Appeal in Asphalt
Case Checks Haste.
WASHINGTON, May 22. The further
investigation of the Bowen-Loomis mat
ter has been postponed pending the ar
rival In this city of William W. Russell,
late Minister to Colombia, whom Mr.
Bowen wants to have examined before
any decision In the case is reached. Mr.
Russell was secretary of the LegatVm
under Mr. Loomls when the latter was
Minister at Caracas.
Casper Whitney, of New York, also
summoned to Washington, has been ex
amined by the President, but it Is said
he had no material evlndence to con
tribute. Minister Russell was cabled a week ago
at Bogota to come to Washington, not in
connection with the Bowen-Loomis con
troversy, but to discuss with the au
thorities here his treatment of affairs at
Caracas with special reference to the as
phalt controversy. It Is not intended to
take any action In this matter probably
until Congress meets next Fall, provided
nothing happens In Venezuela to force an
Issue. The press advices from Caracas
Indicating that the resources of the law
have not been exhausted and that an ap
peal has been granted to a higher court
make it easier for the Government here
to proceed in this leisurely fashion, it
was explained at the "VTar Department.
Mr. Russell Is on his way from Bogota
and probably will not reach Washington
for more than two weeks. Mr. Bowen has
been advised that he may go to his home
and need not return to Washington until
Mr. Russell reaches the country.
The first of the three additional wit
nesses reached Washington today in
the person of John G. Daler, of the New
York Herald, the reputed author of the
newspaper publication containing the
charge against Assistant Secretary
Loomls, which forms the basis of the
Mr. Daler had a conference with Mr.
Taft lasting about an hour. He told Mr.
Taft that, while in Caracas, he had beard
a great deal of thcse allegations. Involv
ing Mr. Loomis' administration, and had
conversed with more than one person
about them, Mr. Bowen had talked, he
said, not making a request that Mr. Daler
publish the charges, but stating that some
day he hoped to be able to get the case
before the public This testimony was
elicited by Mr. Taft in connection with
Mr. Loomis countercharge against Mr.
After Mr. Daler left the Secretary's
office he waa taxed by Mr. Bowen with a
betrayal of confidence In connection with
the publication of the charges, an impu
tation which he denied. Subsequently
Mr. Bowen, after talking further with
Mr. Daler, admitted that he had done the
latter an Injustice in making such a

notable feature of the occasion was the

AWARDS UNFAIRLY MADE
St. Louis Fair Exhibitors Ask Com
mission for Hearing.
NEW YORK. May 22. Requests for
hearings from St Louis Fair exhibitors,
who are in controversy with the Louisiana
Purchase Exposition Company over the
coming award of prlzep. have been filed
at the offices of the National Commission
in this city, but. as the Commission has
less than six weeks to live and proceed
ings of such a nature, if started, would
last well Into next Winter,. It is doubtful
If the Commissioners will be able to do
anything to give satisfaction to the com
plainants. The protesting exhibitors, among whom
are some of the most prominent manufac
turers In the country, are opposed to the
award of prizes on the ground that the
exhibits were Improperly classified and
judged and that many of the resulting
awards will be unfair. The act of Con?
gress by which the National Commission
was created provided, that the awards of
the exhibition company must officially be
Indorsed by the Commission. This so far
has not been done, and, as the Commis
sion by law ceases to exist on July 1.
there is much speculation as to whether
the opportunity to confirm the decisions
will ever be presented. The certificates
of awards. It Is said, are now completed
and only await Issuance.
BIG RISE IN CORN MARKET
Corner In May tho Cause Wheat
CHICAGO, May 22. A stampede of
shorts today advanced the price of corn
for May delivery precisely 6 cents a
bushel. It was current gossip that the
May option is practically "cornered" by a
few prominent traders. A desire to avoid
possibly greater loss than that already In
curred was the cause of the urgent de
mand today from those who were on the
wrong side of the market. The May de
livery opened at S3 ce-s. The price
quickly jumped to 59c a bushel. Realiz
ing sales caused a reaction to 57 cents.
A somewhat similar situation developed
in the wheat pit. On an active demand
from shorts, the price of wheat for May
delivery was forced up 4 cents a bushel.
Much of the gain was subsequently lost
on profit-taking. May wheat opened at
99 cents. After advancing to $1.03, tho
price dropped to Jl-OUs.
After theiearly bulge, the market quiet
ed down considerably. Under continued
profit-taking the price of May corn sold
off to 56& asked. The wheat market also
lost much of Its bullishness. Final quo
tations on May wheat are at 51.01. a net
advance for the day of 3 cents. May corn
closed at.55;4. a gain of 4H cents.

NEW SURVEY ON BAR
Shoals Have Formed Inside
WORK TO BEGIN IN JUNE
Captains Find That the Present In
ner Buoy Now Marks tho. Outer
Edge of Spit at Mouth
of the Columbia.
Largely because of the complaints of
pilots and steamer captains, that the
present chart of the mouth of the Co
lumbia does not show the shoalest
spots, a new survey will be commenced
by the United States Engineers in less
than a month.
The result of this survey will be In
corporated In the hydrographic chart
which will be issued during the Sum
mer. Captain Bridgett. of the tank steamer
Asuncion, says the formation at the
mouth of the river has changed con
siderably within a short time anl since
the last survey was made.
"The Inner bar -buoy can now he
taken as thejjouter buoy," said he yes
terday. "I sounded very carefully while
coming In yesterday, and I found that
the depth of the water from the outer
buoy to the inner buoy has increased.
We came in before high tide, and be
tween these two buoys there was 30
feet of water. But from the Inner buoy
for a distance of 1500 feet there were
only 27 feet of water. The whole bar
has worked in. and the chart does not
chow Its present location."
As soon as the Government survey
steamer Geo. H. Mendell Js .overhauled
she will take a survey party to the
mouth of the river. The exact location
of the new shoal, as well as of the
channel, will be determined. The work
will probably be completed before the
middle of July.
Other captains than Captain Bridgett
have also so'unded on the bar within
the last few days. The same measure
ments were obtained.
