Paris, Aug 1.—The labor war be
came extremely serious this afternoon
when the government announced its
determination to arrest the leaders
of the General Federation of Labor,
and this announcement was followed
by a call from the federation for a
general strike of the masons and type
The masons are divided,
about half having quit work.
The typesetters have been drawn
into the trouble by an effort of the
leaders to tie up press utterances
which have ben unfavorable to them
The strike leaders believe they can
get along better without the papers.
The government in its decision to
arrest the leaders of the federation,
holds the organization responsible for
the outbreak Thursday at Vigneux
and other labor riots.
Labor leaders say they are prepared
to fight and a great industrial up
heaval is threatened.
Government officials explained that
the typesetters are working under an
agreement and cannot strike without

Chicago, Aug 3.—United States At
torney Sims and Special Consul Kel

petition to the United States circuit
court for a lehearing of the Standard
Oil case, in which the appellate court
recently reversed Judge Landis.
Judge Grosscup and his associates
will be asked to reverse themselves
on the ground that they erred in de

petition will aver that the circuit
court misinterpreted the testimony,

and did not understand the legal
premises on which he based his im
The three points raised by the court
will be met squarely. The hrst is
that Judge Landis attempted to im
pose a fine upon the New Jersey
Standard Oil company for the o f
fenses of the Indiana corporation.
This is to be flatly denied and the
record to be cited to confirm the
claim that the court did not read
the decision of the lower court as it
applied to the evidence.
The second point, that the whole
offenses were in settlements and not
in each shipment, and that ignorance
of existing rates excused the accept
ance of rebates, will be respectfully
characterized as misapplication of the
law and a ruling contrary to its
The third point, that the fine of $29.-
240,000 is excessive and confiscatory,
is to be met by the contention that
the corporation is a chronic offender
and gained many times the amount of
the fine by alleged rebating methods.

Washington, July 31— Acting Secre
tary of the Navy Newberry announced
yesterday that of the bids submitted
for colliers under the provisions of the
naval appropriation act at the last ses
sion of congress, none will be satisfac
tory. lie announced also that, as no
emergency existed requiring immediate
delivery of nny collier, the navy de
partment would invite tenders of jol
liers to be delivered within 12 months,
specifying in tho invitations the gen
eral characteristics, speed, carrying ca
pacity and equipment necessary for the
The appropriation was $525.000 for
each vessel, and the wording of the act
was such as to afford an advantage to
the Massachusetts company, which
had three colliers practically ready for
delivery. The department decided that
the bids wero excessive, and did not
meet all of the requirements. The an
nouncement of tho rejection of all bids
was made after a conference held by
Mr. Newberry with Admiral Converse,
president of the board of construction
and with representatives of the com
panics which submitted bi Is.
The bids were received during last

St. Paul, Minn., Aug. 1.—The an
nouncement that the Hill lines have
abandoned the marine portion o f their
j share in the trade with Japan and
China, while retaining affiliation with
Japanese steamship lines, came as a
i shock to many people of the North-
; west. According to the chairman of
l the board, James J. Hill of the Great
I Northern, it was to be expected.
"W hy,” exclaimed Mr. Hill, "our
Pacific trade has been gone for a year.
, As long as 15 months ago I told them
1 what was coming."
Asked if the action of the American
I trans-continental roads in withdraw
ing from the Pacitic carrying trade
j was due to resentment at the action
of the interstate commerce commis
sion, Mr. Hill replied:
"Resentment, no. The commission
cannot be blamed for enforcing the
1 law. The Pacitic trade was given up
j because it did not pay. America to
day has no flag on the high seas, or
might as well not have, for we cannot
| compete with any other country, and
must hand the load over to anybody
that asks for it. The only way for
us to continue in the Pacific trade
would be for the railroads to own
their own steamers and run them at
a heavy loss.
"W e are not a seafaring nation. We
have no sailors, though under the
law Americans must constitute two-
thirds or three-fourths of the crews.
What we must have to make an
ocean-carrying trade posible is not

Wshington, July 30.— Upon applica
tion of the defendants in the Pacific
Lumber cases, the Interstate Com
merce commission has extended the
effective dates of its orders from Au
gust 15 to October 15. This action
was taken upon the showing made by
the carriers involved that, owing to
the immense number of rates involved,
it would be a physical impossibility to
check up the rates and print and file
the new tariffs before August 15, and
also upon their assurance that, if the
extension was granted, they would not
apply for an injunction to restrain the
commission’s order from becoming ef
They expressly reserve the right to
test the reasonableness of the rates
ordered by the commission in a suit to
be brought for that purpose or in suits
which may develope out of reparation
claims by shippers who have been ship

does not include the case involving
rates from the Willamette valley via
San Francisco, on which the Southern
Pacific has already filed a petition in
San Francisco asking an injunction
against^the commission’s order.

Washington, Aug. 5.-—The monthly
statement of the public debt shows
that at the close of business July 31,
1908, the debt, less cash in the treas

is an increase for the month of $20,-
The cash in the treasury is
$1,791,038,029, against which there
are demand liabilities outstanding
amounting to $1,437,409,856, which
leaves a cash balance of $353,638,173.
The apparent increase in the public
debt is accounted for by the loss o f
cash in the treasury, which, during
