At the eleventh hour when a strike of % Inore than 30,000 locomotive and electrical engineers on fifty Eastern railroads with a mileage of More than 150,000, seemed to further off than morning the United states government through Martin a. Knapp the presiding judge by the United states court of Commerce and Charles p. Neill the United Stales commissioner of labor changed the whole strike situation by taking the initiative looking first to mediation and j finally to arbitration of the wage dispute Between the railroads and the brother Hood of locomotive engineers f the intervention or rather tender of blindly offices it was said in railway i i circles last night is without precedent in the railway history of the country. Both \ the United states commissioner of labor and the judges of the Federal court of Commerce by the provisions of the erd Man act Are duly authorized to give their services As official mediators to either Side in a labor dispute. In this Case however they took the initiative thus preventing at least temporarily a strike that seemed inevitable and opening the Way to a peaceful settlement. The situation at 6 of clock last night was this the committee of railway Man agers acting with the approval and Sanction of the Board of Eastern railway presidents had made its final answer refusing to Grant the engineers the 18 per cent Rise in wages which had been de handed. The engineers on the acceptance of this final answer had sent an Multi Matt Fth in which they clearly asserted that they intended to strike within thirty i six hours. The fifty two chairmen of the f brotherhood of locomotive engineers who had assembled from All parts of the country to argue their Case with the committee of railway managers had packed their suitcases and were on their Way to their Homes. 1 just at this juncture grand chief Stone of the brotherhood of locomotive engineers and j.

If this is unfortunately the fact it is evident that a grave situation has Arisen which threatens most serious consequences to the Sablic. In this emergency we Are impelled the sense of duty to tender our Friendly flees to the contending parties in the Hope that some Means May be found to adj ret the matters in dispute without the calamity of s general strike. We Are sending an identical letter to or. O. Stuart chairman of the committee of Railroad managers. Very sincerely yours Martin a. Knapp presiding judge United states Commerce court. Charles p. Neill United states commissioner of labor. A strike seemed As certain As a Sun when the letter came. It seemed in fact As if Only one thing in the v orld could Stop it the immediate surrender of the railroads or at least a i Concession of the greater part of the wage demands. The 52 chairmen of the brotherhood of locomotive engineers who by a vote of 93.3 per cent of the i engineers had been authorized to act lag they saw fit had decided by a unanimous vote to declare a strike with Ita thirty six hours. The engineers will accept the offer of the Federal agents.

That was another Rebuff for Bryan. With 80 per cent of the vote reported Bryan has 12,947 and Hitchcock 12,956 for Delegate at Large. Or.

As a result the streets Are being patrolled by three companies of the state militia. Citizens Are being warned from the streets and ordered to their Homes in the Hope that by placing the City under practically martial Law the incendiary or incendiaries May be prevented from doing further damage. The outbreaks a recall the great fire of feb. 2, 1902, causing damage to the extent a of $2,500,000, the City being Laid waste. The fear that this catastrophe might be duplicated has spurred the firemen and police to extraordinary efforts All Day and probably had much to do with mayor Francis t. Reeves a order calling out the militia. Two arrests were made this afternoon of men suspected of having had a hand lit starting the fires. One suspect was released after he was Able to account for his actions throughout the period when a Man answering his description was seen at the location of one of the first fires. The other Man arrested is Well known locally for his propensity for sending in false alarms for the Sake of seeing the fire department respond. He Calls himself Jackie Lane and is not known to have a permanent address. Lane was arrested because of his habit not because the police had Quot any evidence against him concerning to Days fires. It is a coincidence however that his. Arrest occurred at 9 40 o clock and that the last fire was discovered at 9 35 o clock. From that moment there has been no other alarm. Police Patti Ileal. Unless the real culprit be a fire maniac the police Are at a loss to account for the outbreaks. Years ago this town was a frequent source of labor troubles. There have been none in recent years nor has there been occasion recently for such disturbances. The mystery of the fires origin is disturbing the City. Who is causing the fires or where the next one May break out has Unstrung the nerves of every one and to night the order of the militia for citizens to leave the streets was obeyed with alacrity and cheerfulness. As fire followed fire House owners decided that their places were at their own residences to guard them from similar destruction. To night the theatres were deserted and the crowds that usually flock the downtown streets were absent. Men and wom4n sat at Home Alert and on guard. Many a Man had a Rifle or Shotgun within easy reach. At 9 35 the last alarm sounded for a fire in pythian Hall at 70 Bank Street a three Story Brick building which houses the West Side savings Bank and a millinery shop and Lodge rooms on the top floor. The damage had been Small in All ten fires except that in the City Hall. In pythian Hall where the fire was started under the stairs on the third floor the damage was slight. In City Hall everything but the Walls was destroyed. The a Ull Dong was erected about forty years ago. It was two stories High and constructed of Brownstone.

London tuesday april 23.-an nou Cement by Sydney Buxton in the House of commons last evening that lord Mersey was to be appointed chairman of a court of inquiry to investigate the titanic disaster is received with general approval. Lord Mersey has had wide experience in maritime affairs As sex preside it of the admiralty court. The re Sunal which he will direct is to be invested with the widest possible Powers and have authority to require the attendance of any witness and make a searching investigation into All the questions that have Arisen in connection with the loss of the White Star liner. The daily mail this morning Points out that one of these questions Mut be the inaction of the Board of trader it says a a the country has still to learn Why it was that this department charged with a duty so important and so i amp be. Neglected that duty and failed to remodel its regulations determining the provision of boats for passenger steamers so As to keep Pace with the rapid Advance of these vessels in else. A a the want of Leafs was the cause of the fearful tragedy on the titanic whereby 1,635 persons lot their lives and the insufficiency of boats must be ascribed to the negligence of the Board of Trade. A no excuses no special pleading can get Over this grim fact yet even now though Many great shipping companies have taken action the Board of Trade remains the times commenting editorially on the appointment of a titanic court of inquiry says a it is pretty Clear that the Nuiji Ber of persons who can give authentic information about the loss of the titanic is very Small. On so huge a ship most people s area of observations is very limited and they have nothing Toi Tell at the it Ltd Hall fire a fireman was injured. He was fireman James Mitchell who was sent to the top of a lofty water Tower erected in front of the building. He was perched 75 feet in the air when the truck from which the water Tower Rose began to skid on the wet Asphalt. It had been raining All Day. The Tower began to Sway Forward and Back with Mitchell clinging to its top. There were shouts from his fellow firemen and from chief Samuel c. Snagg for him to come Down but before he could obey the warning the truck began to skid More and More influenced by the swaying of the heavy ladder above it and presently it overturned. The water Tower came crashing toward the Street striking against some electric Light wires As it fell. Mitchell was tossed from it and alighted in the wires. He had fallen a Lxiv feet and Lay half conscious in the Maze of wires. Other firemen raised ladders and scurried up within reach of him. He was carried to the sidewalk and rushed to a Hospital. His condition was said to be serious but not dangerous. Meantime a second alarm had been turned in but the Blaze was then beyond the control of the entire fire department. Discovered afterwards that it had it was . Been started in the basement of the building where there was much paper stored and where there was also considerable varnish which had been used in renovating the building and which had been left there until the whole work Shoul have been done. It mounted through the old flues of the building until it reached the attic where it found a mass of old papers Bills and receipts and other documents of no Reat value which had been allowed to accumulate there for years. Feeding on this debris the flames burst through the roof with a vigor which sent them fifty or More feet into the air and which threw a Brilliant Light Over the Small Park on which City Hall faced and which was filled then with hundreds of men women and children.

The names occurring la the list do not correspond in several instances with the names on the passenger list and believed that the double relay in the bending May have caused the spelling of Many of the names to be garbled. The White Star line sent off a message last night to Cape race asking that the discrepancy in the names of those supposed to have been found and the no Mes on the Pae Benger list be cleared up. In the Hope of receiving a reply to this and of obtaining an additional list of More bodies found officers were kept open All night. Distinguished us a a is doubt.

A stars flame there was much speculation in the White Star offices. One name received read Necolas rasher and the wireless and Telegraph men who examined the dispatch finally decided it might stand for col. Astor. A mistake in the sending of names is said to be easily made in either the Morse or Continental code which is used in wireless and land telegraphy. This fact in addition to the possibility of error in the double relay led Telegraph men to the conclusions in regard to the names of major butt or. Widener and col. Astor. Though the names As printed seem very unlike the names of these men a mistake of a Dot or dash in the wireless and land Telegraph codes might occasion a mistake of Man letters in the translation. The name a a Louis m.

St. Johns Newfoundland april 22.�? the Cable ship Mackay Bennett. Which is cruising near the scene of the wreck of the White Star liner tits hic recovered More bodies to Day. It is known that fifty were recovered yesterday but the number taken out of the water to Day has not been sent by wireless up to this time by the Mackay Bennett. There is reason to believe that All the bodies which will be taken to Halifax can be identified. It is also considered probable that articles must have been found on some of the bodies that would identify them but As yet no information to this effect has been Senf from the funeral ship. Immediately following receipt of the news that the Mission of the Mackay Bennett had been partly successful and that there was More work to be done in the neighbourhood of the great disaster than one vessel could handle the White Star line chartered the Western Union Cable ship Minia and ordered her to proceed forthwith to the Relief of the other Cable ship. The Minia which is scheduled to sail from Halifax to night has taken on a cargo of 150 coffins. Several undertakers Are also on Board. The Rev. K. C. Hind of the Church of England is on the Mackay Bennett and he will be trans. Feared to the Lnla when the two Cable ships meet the one in route from and the other to the scene of the wreck. To or Hind fell last night the sad duty of conducting the funerals or the unidentifiable dead no were consigned to the sea from the Mackay Bennett. He will perform a similar duty on Board the Minia in the event any unidentifiable bodies Are picked up by that ship. There will be no efforts made to identify positively Aby of the recovered bodies until after they Are received at Halifax. In that City friends and relatives of the dead will be permitted to View the bodies for purposes of identification. Such As Are identified will be shipped any place in the world the relatives of the victims May designate while such Bolesas Are not identified will be buried with appropriate religious ceremonies in Halifax. The orders to the Minja Are to meet the Mackay Bennett near the scene or the wreck where the latter vessel is now engaged in the work of recovering the bodies. As soon its the Rev or.
