Ice Handlers of New York Quit
6oo Men of the American Ice Company
Are Out and the Strike Will Spread
Over t the Whole of Greater New
NEW YORK, June 29. Another
strike which has come to pester Greater
New York during the heated season, is
that of the icemen inaugurated in cer
tain parts of New York and Brooklyn
yesterday, and which the striker de
clare, will spread to all parts of Great
er New York todav.
The strike lins so far affected Manhat
tan only below 34th street, but here ho
tels, restaurant ssuloons and otlier
places, where ice is a prime necessity,
were put to expedients to get a supply.
At some of the saloons the icemen had
given a friendly tip the day before and
a large supply had been laid in, but it
was curofuly economized.
I ho strike affected the well-to-do
rather than the tenement people who
buy their supply from push cart or go
to the docks tor it. Some of the east aid
ers got the idea yesterday that the
peddler were giving too small pieces,
and sent their children to the wharf and
hauled the family supply home in carts
and baby carriages. '
In many cases people were left with
out ice and many a householder bad to
appeal to the grocery.
The men who are on strike, about 600
In number, were employed by the Amer
ican Ice Company which controls the
ice business in New York and vicinity.
The refusal of the companies to discharge
some of its employees for not joining
the union, it is said caused the strike.
Implied Threat Against
American Goods.
Japanese Chamber of Commerce
Sends Communication to the
U. S. Organizations.
Japanese Merchant Have Decided To
Use Method Employed by the Chinese
Two Year Ago To Secure L Better
Treatment For Their People Here.
WASHINGTON, June 29. Reading
between line of statements issued to
day, by the Japanese Chambers of
Commerce, assembled at Tokio, directed
to President Roosevelt and also to the
Chamber of Commerce in this country,
the officials here tee clearly an implied
threat of a boycott against American
goods entering Japan. The boycott de
livered by the Chinese merchant against
the American product, two years ago,
in resentment of the treatment accorded
the Chinese of the better clas entering
America produced-better conditions. It
is therefore assumed that the Japanese
merchant have decided to have recourse,
to the same methods of showing re
sentment against the treatment accord
ed their people in San Francisco. ,
The message addressed to the Cham
ber of Commerce is as -follows:
"It ha always been a matter of pro
found satisfaction to the people of Ja
pan to witness the constant growth of
cordial relatione between our two coun
tries and of our community interests in
the field of trade and commerce. but

your countrv have unfortunately acted
m a manner calculated to prejudice the
legitimate rights of the Japanese peo
ple who have been frequently subjected
to unjust and abusive treatment at the
hand of a lawless element prevailing.
The right of education has been denied
them; tfieir bouses have repeatedly been
attacked and their property destroyed
without the least cause or provocation,
with the result that not only have the
treaty right of the Japanese been wan
tonly disregarded, but their persons and
property also have been exposed to ser
ious danger.
"It is to be extremely regretted that
such unfortunate incidents should be
allowed to occur so frequently, as it is
feared that, unless they are speedily
stopped, the ill-feeling which our coun
trymen are now constrained to harbor
-for the people of a single section in
America may eventually have an un
happy effect upon the development of
the commercial relations of the two na
tions, for while the United States ia a
pood customer for our natural products,
Japan is also increasing her demand for
American goods, and promise to be
come one of the most important mar
kets for your ever-expanding and
prosperous industries.
Should the progress of trade end
commerce between the two nations be
come obstructed as the result of the
unwarrantable action of a small sec
tion of your population, the loss sus
tained by the two countries would be
"We therefore venture to address you
and express our views on the situation,
confident in the hope that they will be
shared by you and that you will, con
sidering the matter on the right princi
ples of national intercourse and the mu
