Amount Settled Upon for the Improvement of
the Columbia River.
Washington, Deo. 24. The river
and harbor bill will contain an appro
priation of $400,000 for the month cf
the Columbia, and aTurther provision
that this improvement be placed under
the continuing contract system nntil
oompleted. It is understood, however,
that the total amount of the contract
will not be as great as that recom
mended by the engineers. It will
probably be in the neighborhood of
$ 1,500,000. This cut m tne estimate
is veiy favorable to many other states.
Chairman Burton was anxious to
have some repeal legislation to qualify
the large amount in the river and har
bor bill. One of the items whioh he
wanted repealed was the Dalles boa
railway. The Orea delegation in
sisted that it should remain until as
surance of some other project for over
coming the obstruction could be bad.
This contention now prevails.

Company Says It Is Not In a Position to Grant
Increase Negotiations Under Way
for Speedy Settlement.
Soranton, Pa., Deo 26. Every one
of the 800 car and bam employes of
the Scranton Railway Company obeyed
the strike order, which went into efieot
at 5 o'clock this morning, and as a
consequence only two pars weie run
in all of the Laokawana valley today.
These two were manned by Superinten
dent Tatterson and dispatchers, fore
men and clerks. No attempt was made
to .Dolest them, and, although rain feP
a great part of . the day, the two oai
seldom had a passenger.
The tied-up region extends irom
Pittston to Forest City, a distance of
80 miles, and includes 65 miles of
track, on whioh are run ordinarily 80
cars. The men of the Wyoming Val

the lines south of Pittston as far as
Nantiooe, threaten to go on a strike.
With both oompanies tied up there
would be a total cessation of Btieet
oar traffio on a busy stretch of
country 80 miles north, including the
four big cities of Soranton, Wilkes
barre, Pittston and Carboudale.
The strikers met tonight and ap
pointed committees to man the differ
ent railroad stations. They are to
watoh for men who it is rumored have
been recruited in Philadelphia to take
their places. They will distribute
cards to strangers, notifying them of
the strike, and asking them not to ride
on the oars. An appeal to the local
publio has been issued, asking that (he
cars be not patronized, rf - " -
The men 'dowvsi 20 cents no hour
for old .atnfloyes and 15 to 17 ' for
new men. They also demand ft 10
hour day. The company, iu its answer
Millie grievance committee, sayB it is
not in a position to afford any inmoase
in wages at the present time. Presi
dent Clark arrived tonight and stated
the road would be operated with new
men if the old men cannot be seourod.
