BUSINESS IS PARALYZED
TpndcrQ..Go.od Offices In Any Way
to Settle Telegraphers' Strike.
,-Acts at Urgent Request of
8T. PAUL., Aug. 9. The first definite
Btep looking- toward arbitration of the
struggle which has been In progress for
over a week between the Great Northern
and Norther Pacific railways and the Or
der of Railway Telegraphers was taken
today, when Governor John A. Johnson
addressed letters to Presidents J. J. Hill
nnd Howard Elliott, of the railways, and
President H. B. Perham. of the tele
graphers, urging a settlement of the
trouble and offering his services as medi
ator. The exact terniB of the letters are
not .known, as the Governor preferred Jhat
they should be given out by the recipients
If they saw fit. In a general way, how
ever, the Governor outlined to the Asso
ciated Press what was contained In the
He called the officials' attention to the
fact that the present strike was working
a hardship in various communities
throughout the State, and appealed to
them to take speedy steps to secure an
adjustment of the existing troubles. To
this end, he tendered the good offices of
the chief executive, saying that he stood
ready to appoint a commission to con
cider the differences between the con
tending parties, or in any other way to
.Assist them to come to some agreement
that -would permit the roads to move their
traffic without the delays and Inconveni
ences that are now said to exist.
The Governor was prompted to take this
action by numerous letters he has receiv
ed from commercial organizations and cit
izens of the State urging him to take
nome measure to end the struggle. The
Governor stated that some of the letters
he had received declared that business in
sections of the State was almost para
lyzed by the conditions which now pre
vail. . Both Mr. Hill and Mr. Elliott are now
in the East, although the former is ex
pected to reach St. Paul some time this
President Perham, of the Order of Tel
egraphers, has stated on several occa
sions that he Is willing to submit his
case to any fair-minded tribunal.
There were no other developments in
the situation today. Both sides are still
claiming that conditions arc Improving

CALLS STRIKERS PLOTTERS.
Hill Says None of Them Will Ever
Be Employed Again.
NEW YORK, Aug. 9. James J. Hill
set at rest -today the. reports said to
have been spread among the striking
telegraphers of the Great Northern
and Northern Pacific roads, that he,
would Intervene In their behalf; In the
contention with th,e operating officials
of' the roads. Mr. Hill said, In regard
to the case of thp strikers,, that the
men had been dismissed because they
would not obey orders.
. "Men," continued Mr. Hill, "who "will
plot to embroil a railroad and Its em
ployes Just at the beginning of a sea
son when they know a heavy move
ment of traffic Is expected, as at pres
ent, with the approach of crop move
ments, do not deserve to be on the pay
rolls of any road. They are positions
of trust, and the plotters are not fit
to hold them. I -will see to it that any
of those who have been active in
bringing about this strike will never
again enter the employ of the road."

As he was riding tip to Wellesley College ono Sunday morning in the late Spring, when he wm due to -preach
there, Bishop Lawrence espied a small hoy trotting along with fishing rod and tackle in his hand. Telling
the driver to stop, he leaned out of his carriage and called, "Little hoy! Little hoy!" "Yes, sir?" the
urchin answered. "Do you know whero little hoys go who go fishing on Sunday?" "Yes, sir; they go up
the Charles here ahout a mile, near the Cheney place."
If you should ask some of Portland's youngsters where hoys and girls go who huy their shoes and
stockings at OLDS, WORTMAN & KING'S, they would quickly tell you that they go up to the "OAKS,"
