MAKES 125,000 IDLE
Building Contractors Retal
iate for Strike Order Is
sued by Carpenters.
WAGE INCREASE IS ISSUE
Jurisdictional Disputes of Unions
Add Complications Violence
, Koported After Employment
of Nonunion Painters.
CHICAGO, April 16. Governor Dunne
ordered members of the State Board
of Arbitration, today to offer their
cervices to Chicago building trades
workmen and their employers, in the
interests of industrial peace. A call
was Issued immediately for a meeting
of the board Monday.
The strike order issued by the car
penters' district council, which became
effective at the close of work yester
day, was followed today by a retali
tive measure In the form of a lockout
directed at 16,000 carpenters engaged
in construction work all over Cook
1200 Contractor Take Pledge.
The lockout debarred tho union car
penters from work on 4000 buildings
which are being erected by 1200 con
tractors, who are pledged and bonded
to maintain their stand until every
union in the structural trades comes
to terms. The terms include an anti
strike agreement covering a period of
three years. The union leaders de
clared tonight that the strike would not
end until the demands of the men for
an increase of wages of 5 cents an
hour had been granted.
It was estimated that 125,000 wage
earners in Chicago were made jobless
today, for the lockout and strike tied
up operations on $12,000,000 worth of
work. Besides the total of 60.000
unionists of various branches of the
building trades, at least 60,000 more
men and women in shops and mills that
furnish material for buildings were
I umber of Idle 'Will (iroir.
Kmploying interests predicted today
that the list of idle would grow un
less an agreement to arbitrate is
reached. The labor situation in Chi
cago has been growing more tense each
day since March 1, when the lathers
went on strike.
Three building trades unions that
are confronted with the alternative of
accepting the employers' association's
terms or being locked out are: Bridge
and structural ironworkers, cement
finishers and marble setters.
The structural ir.onworkers have been
avoiding a settlement because of a
Jurisdictional dispute with the build
ing laborers' union, which has made a
demand for the right to set reinforc
ing steel in concrete. The ironwork
ers say they have a prior claim on this
Non-Union Painters Hired.
The cement finishers are demanding
5 cents an hour for the first year,
67J,3 cents for the second and 70 cents
for the third year. Settlement of the
dispute between the marble setters
union and the employers has been de
layed by a jurisdictional fight with the
bricklayers' union, which wants to ab
sorb the marble setters.
Kmploying painters, who had voted
not to hire any of the 11,000 union
painters in the Painters' District Coun
cil, began employing: non-union paint
ers today. Reports of violence which
reached the employment headquarters
resulted in precautions to protect the
non-unionists from attacks.

thicker than the Incense, a feeling of
dramatic intensity like that which pre
cedes a great moment in the theater.
Candlea Are Perfect Symbols.
My attention fixed Itself on those
candles, perfect symbols of the precious
lives out there on the great line. The
leather curtains which guard the doors
would open now and then as a new
worshiper entered. The little draft of
air would blow through the candles
and I found myself straining my eyes
tuixlously to see if any of them went
out. They symbolized life in war. Left
to themselves they would burn out in
their appointed time and disappear into
thin vapor and a few gatherings, which
is like the normal course of human

hate nor for him who has yielded to

greed of power and hardness of heart
and denial of human right have
brought this universal suffering on

Latin Quarter Is DrKperatr.
Possibly the oddest manifestation of
war in Faris is the present condition
of the Latin Quarter. The vouns
Frenchman of the Quarter, whether he
be really a worker In the arts or a
mere poseur, wearing a beri and long
hair for the tourist to see, has gone
to the front. Of 1400 students at the
Kcole des Beaux Arts, 1300 went out
at the first call, and three-fourths of
those who survive are in the trenches.
They left behind only a few cripples
ani loreigners, sucn as -Kussians. na
tives of the Balkans and occasional
Americans and Englishmen. There were
also a few Italians up the last month
but most of these have been called to
their own colors.
However, they did leave all the wo
men who depend for their lives in one
way or another upon the activities of
the Quarter. The war bears hard upon
tnem. few of them are married, there
fore they do not receive even the al
lowance of a franc and a quarter a
day which the republic doles out to
women whose husbands are serving.
Since art is proceeding at about one
tenth its normal speed, there is little
work for the models, and their con
dition has become almost desperate.
Studio Turned Into 'Canteen.'
The Quarter takes care of Its girls
by philanthropic methods of its own
loose, unsystematic, but thoroughly
tactful. One woman cubist painter has
turned her studio into a "canteen" to
provide dinners for needy habitants of
the Quarter. One dines there, plainly.
but sufficiently, for 60 centimes, or 12
cents. The canteen has grown into an
institution. The guests linger after
dinner; other guests drop in; there is
as usual much talk of art and even a
little music. The canteen has become
a kind of salon of the Quarter; when
one has nothing else to do. he drops
in after dinner.
Last night we were entertained by
a young Russian pianist, who played
Debussy and other advanced music with
an approach to genius. He carries more
hair with him than any other human
being I ever saw. Beside him, Pader

on a forte passage, it rises and bobs
up and down in the breeze. We were
to have a famous cafe chantant singer
also; but, as the concierge explained
it to us, he met friends and dined too
Lame Poet Does His Share.
One of the poets of the Quarter
writes his poetry by night and works
in an office for a small salary by day.
Being lame, he could not go with the
colors. He has taken it upon himself
to look after five girls, either models
or sweethearts of his soldier friends.
Every evening he rounds up his flock
and takes them to a certain cafe where
Bohemian persons most resort. Per

An American friend of this poet re
ceived a louis (which is $4) from an
unexpected source. He remarked that
he should like to give It away.
' Then for the Lord s sake, said the
poet, "give it to me. I'll find some
tactful way of getting it to one of the
models. They're in a dreadful way for
clothes. She'll get herself a new suit,
a hat, a waist, shoes and a pair of
gloves. How she'll do it on a louis I
don't know, but she will!"

a foreign art student, has an allowance.

weekly expenses to a nicety. With

Circuit Judge Anderson denied the
motion of Mr. West's attorneys for a
directed verdict. The courtroom was
again jammed today, members of the
local W. C. T. U., wearing white rib
bons, being conspicuous as on previous
days. Many spectators brought their
luncheons, some arriving an hour be
fore court opened, to procure a seat.
Mr. West May Defend Self.
Mr. West js expected to make an
argument before the Jury tomorrow and
it is now believed that the case will
go to the jury soon after he finishes.
Judge Anderson in his ruling said.
"The principle of this case involves
a most vital principle in our govern
ment, the preservation of our rights as
individuals. The same principles were
Involved In the Wiegand vs. West in
junction proceedings, at the time the
court acted on the complain of William
Wiegand, that the defendant had
threatened to Invade Copperfield and
run over property rights by the force
of arms. At that time a temporary in
junction, was granted and an order is
sued requesting the defendant to ap
pear and show cause why the injunc
tion should not be made permanent. It
is needless to review what transpired
In that case.
Jury "Warned Against Clamor.
"It is sufficient to say that tho de
fendant filed an answer, a demurrer
was filed to that answer. A hearing on
the demurrer was concluded by a decree
overruling tho demurrer in this court
and the case went to the Supreme Court.
"This is the type of case that in the
past has resulted from overthrow of
law and order. Sometimes judges wav
er at the clamor and pressure brought
to bear by the public, and sometimes
jurors are prevailed on to swerve from
the duty which they would perform If
they acted coolly and deliberately. We
must be guided by1 the , Constitution in
this matter. --
"It may be argued that the property
in question, liquor,' is worse than use
less, but we must treat the case as if
any other form of property were in
volved, as long as the United States
Government recognizes it as such.
Military Power Defined.
"In the previous case of this kind in
this court I examined many of the cases
which counsel for both plaintiff and
defendant have cited as precedent, and
at first it might appear that there is
a hopeless conflict. There is a differ
ence of opinion as to the length which
an executive may go in enforcing the
law. The Governor is invested with the
power of discretion in declaring mili
tary law, but to overthrow the civil
government is not contemplated by the
"This court must uphold the law and
interpret it and the jury must decide
as to facts. The question in this trial
is the taking and removing of property.
Judicial Authority Denied.
"The opinion of this court Is that
the executive is not vested with 'judi
cial power to declare cause for which
goods may be taken. The -jury must
say if these causes existed. For these
reasons I must deny the motion of the
defendant's attorneys for a directed
To eliminate useless, arguing before
the jury, Judge Anderson gave his
opinion as to the element of conversion
entering into the case, deciding that the
defendant had taken the property of
the plaintiff and exercised dominion
over it. The fact that a tender of the
property had been made, he said, might
be used to mitigate damages.
