New York— For the first time in the
history of railway unions, members
and delegates representing 83,000 men
o f the four great divisions of railway
employes in the East, voted unani­
mously at a meeting here to take con­
certed action in national and state
“ The proper place to settle Ques­
tions affecting labor is at the ballot
box,” said W. S. Stone, o f Cleveland,
O., grand chief o f the Brotherhood o f
Locomotive Engineers.
"W h atever your political affiliations,
do not let party lines blind you to your
interest or prevent you from doing
what you think is best and right. See
that the men for stand for the
right principles, regardless o f party,
and support these men who meet the
requirements and you will not only be
doing the best thing for yourselves,
but for the public.
"T h is is not a political move at all,
as is generally understood, but a move
to get away from the old lines’o f parti­
san politics.”
In pursuance o f this plan, the meet­
ing voted to send out a series o f eight
questions to state and national candi­
dates, particularly to candidates for
the legislature and congress, asking
for a definition o f their attitude on

New York— The cheap soda water
which is retailed on street corners to
school children and passers by at a
penny or two a glass is, in most cases,
an alcoholic beverage with a larger
percentage of spirits than ordinary
beer, according to an analysis made by
Professor M. S. Allyn. o f the Massa­
chusetts State Normal school.
"T h e syrups with which these cheap
sodas are flavored frequently contain
10 per cent o f alcohol,” said Professor
Allyn. "T h is is twice as much as
there is in beer.
Take, for instance,
a "straw berry’ flavoring which I
bought at a stand on the lower East
Side. The red color in the syrup is
obtained from a coal tar dye and the
flavor is given by an ether compound.”

Seattle—J. F. Warren, special g ov ­
ernment agent for the Second judicial
district o f Alaska, received a cable­
gram saying that two men now in jail
at Nome have confessed to complicity
in the theft o f $14,345 from the sluice
boxes o f the Pioneer Mining company.
Mr. Warren has not yet learned wheth­
er the reported confession has impli­
cated Marius Johansen, or John Ty-
berg, who were arrested recently in
this city on a charge o f being implica­
ted in the robbery but believes they
also are guilty.
