MONDAY, MARCH 24, 1902.
The senators are now devising
methods by which the oleomargarine
bill can be defeated. The scheme is
to amend it so as to nullify its pro
Tisions. E. C. Simmons, adivsory director
of the Simmons Hardware Company,
stated that there was a $30,000,000
deal on, which would probably end in
the consolidation of four of the larg
est hardware concerns in the coun
try. Florence Burns, the young Brook
lyn woman who has been in the cus
tody of the police of New York city
since February 15, under suspicion of
knowing how Walter Brooks met his
death, was discharged from custody
by Justice Mayer.
Unless one party or the other re
cedes from its present position, the
probabilities are that every brewery
In Boston will be closed April 1. The
trouble may also affect the barten
ders of that and other cities. The
1500 brewery workmen have request
ed the master brewers to grant them
an eight-hour work day April 1,
without reduction of wages.
The contest for a shorter work day
which is being carried on against
paper manufacturers by the United
Brotherhood of Paper Makers of
America, is oxpected to roach a crisis
within two weeks. Representative's
of nowspaper manufacturers and of
labor unions interested in the jraper
trade had a conference in wlMiaukee,
Wis. It was called by Secretary tens
ley, of the National Civic Federation
to avert, if possible, a threatened
strike of the men employed in the pa

OF GENERAL INTEREST
Sme Politics and Other Matters of
New York. March 24. After one of
the busiest sensons in lis history the
New York State Legislature closes
next Thursday, which by the way will
be the earliest adjournment on re
cord for that body. A large number
of bills have been passed and equally
as may shelved, but the most notable
of the latter is the "three platoon"
bill, which has been tho cause of a
great expenditure of money by the
policemen of New York.

the Panama here was so popular that

Every year New York receives
from anonymous contributions money
paid in restitution and credited to the
"conscience fund." The amounts are
imall. varying some years from as
low as $50 and as high as $400.
Last year they were $302. The state
government gets very little from any
conscience fund. Some years ago
there were no such payments; the lat
