which the Vatican independently of the

to co-operate in the pacification of the
people under American sovereignty.
The measures are Indicated in my

Wyoming, ' At Atlantic City a
party of miners took possession of a
band of sheep owned by William Scar

Indian trail to Twin Creek. The min

Scarlet had been warned not to cross

camps, but he ignored the miners. No
further trouble is anticipated here.' Se
rious trouble Is imrrfinent-in the "New

M UNITED STATES IS NOT ASKED.
Washington, D. C, July 21. The
government of the United States has
not received an invitation to partici
pate In the antl-trust conference pro
posed .by the csar. The government
was not concerned officially In the In
ternational sugar conference at Brus
sels, to which the projected conference
is a" natural supplement. Therefore
it is not eblieved that it3 participation
in this is expected.
However, it would be clearly Impos

to enter into any undertaking with
foreign governmentsi concerning such
important matters as trade regulations

It is felt that congress would never

Striking Freight Handlers Take Their . Old

Strika Was Expensive 1o Business
Men, Costing in Naighborhood
Chicago, July IS. (Special.) Renew
ed activity on the part of Chicago busl
ness men followed the settlement of the
freight handlers' and the teamsters
strike and at the. close of . business
hours for the day thousands of tons
of freight had been sent to and from
the various freight depots. Kvery one
of the 24,000 strikers who could obtain
employment had returned to work by
2 o'clock in the afternoon. The strike,
it is estimated, cost the business men
of Chicago J10.000.000 and in order to
guard against a contingency in the .u
ture they, are preparing to Inaugurate
an educational campaign in opposition
to the sy'mpsrtrTetic-Vtrike.
The labor unions will be atked to
forego the uSTT!f ' tMs impotent wca
pon. . Business' interests which suffered
during the strike will Join in pledging
themselves, If is said, not to sign un
ion agreements which dc not guard
them against these strikes.
On the other hand the labor unions
are fighting to secure the right to abro
gate agreements for the purpose of or.
dering sympathetic strikes.
The freight handlers blame the na
tional officers of the teamsters for the
loss of the strike. They declare that
the strike shews the necessity for In
eorporatlng in all agreements a reser
vation which will permit strikes. '
Credit forhe settlement" Vests with
the state'boafcr of arbitration. ' It was
'the adoption of the suggestlort of that
board whlch led to the action of: the
freight handlers' union in declaring the
struggle with. the railroads at an, end
At the same time it is probable that
even had the state board not made its
suggestions, the fight would have been
practically over, as the majority of the
freight handlers had returned to their
work before the mass meeting at which
the strike was called off officially had
convened. It v. as a knowledge of this
fact that had much to do with the ac
tion taken by the union. However, the
proposition made by the state board of
arbitration enabled the freight han
dlers to retire gracefully from the field.
After ten days of strike the Chicago
freight handlers' strike terminated in
an unqualified victory for -the rail
roads. A meeting of the strikers, pre
sided over by President Curran, result
ed In an almost unanimous vote to re
turn to work, leaving. the wage scale
and other questions for settlement be
tween the men and their respective
At the conclusion of the meeting the
strikers went by hundreds to the ware
houses to apply for their old positions,
and the teamsters who have remained
out in sympathy again took us their
reins. By noon Immense quantities of
freight which had been held back for
days was being rushed to the railroads
or taken from warehouses and cars.
Wrhere stagnation had ruled commer
cial activity again reigned.
Chicago merchants express unbound
ed relief at the termination of hostili
ties, but they are scarcely less happy
than the men themselves, although the
strike is. estimated to have cost thr-m

GERMANY WILL FACE MEAT FAMINE.
Washington, V. C Consul General
Masun at Frankfort reports to the
state department the text of the regu
Iations governing the me-at inspection
laws of Germany, which Is of vital In
tert-st to meat packers of this country,
Aftera thiniugh discussion of theva
rious pijfUgiiiphs of the bill relating to
the Imnoiiatlon of meats and meat
producing animals into Germany, Con
sul General Mason says:
"Although the principal features ul
the law have long been made familiar
through consulifr'and press reports, i
brief resume of some of Its more 1m
portant provisions, especially those
which will affect the importation of
meats and animals, may be of present
interest. Under paragraph 12, fresh
meats can only be Imported In whole
carcasses. Carcasses of cattle and
hogs, but not of calves, may be spilt in
half, but the halves are to be left to
gether and accompanied in all cases
by the head, lungs, heart and kidneys.
Cow btc-f must have the udder at
tached and carcasses of pork must in
clude the tongue. Excepting hams, ba
con and intestines, no piece of pickled
smoked or otherwise preserved meat
weighing less than S.8 pounds may be
Imported Into Germany. When to all
this Is added the' prohl6llion of meats
preserved with "borax or boraclc acid,
or with any of several other antisep
tic salts, it will be evident that the
net effect of the new system will be to
more or less diminish the supply and
increase the cost of meats for con
sumption In this country. Already some
premonitory symptoms of such Influ
ence are noticed.
MEAT FAMINE IN SIGHT.
'The Berliner Tageblatt makes the
following comment: "The meat inspec
tion law throws its shadow before a
meat famine is in eight. Old stocks of
preserved meats have become exhaust
ed, and tlje countries which formerly
supplied Germany with meats have for
the most part' found other hiarkets,
and our import 'of cattle and fresh
meats is steadily diminishing. Ham
burg, and Berlin have this .week en
joyed a foretaste of what. will happen
when the meat inspection law shall
have entered into full force. It oc
curred at Hamburg on Saturday, June
14, that many butchers had no beef to
sell because Denmark had sent ' very
few cattle and because the rest of
Germany and Austria tiad . furnished
only a meager supply for part of the
week. Berlin had to pay on Saturday
at the cattle market, for the lew
available animals that were to be had,
actual famine prices.' "

. Attitude in Mooting. -
Indianapolis, Ind. (Special.) If the
voice and influence of President Mitch
ell of the United Mine Woikers pre
vail with the members of his organ
ization there will be no general strike
of the organization. In his speech In
the convention Mr. Mitchell advised
strongly against a strike and urged
that the bituminous miners continue
at work and that a system of assess
ment upon the members of the order,
which he outlined, be carried Into ef
fect as the best means of affording
aid and support of the striking an
thracite men in, the eas.t.
His recommendations would hae
settled the entire question for which
the convention was called and an im
mediate adjournment would have fol
lowed. A motion to adopt the sugges
tions of President Mitchell provoked a
long debate, In which the general sen
tlment was against the ordering of the
strike. The men from the anthracite
regions finally made a request that
they be allowed to hold a caucus to
determine upon an expression of c-pln
Ion as to what they thought the con
vention should do, and asked an ad
journment of the convention for this
purpose. Their request was granted
and the adjournment taken. The men
who were in .favor of a strike were In
a decided minority In the convention.
CONVENTION CALLED TO ORDER
The hour for calling he convention
was 19 o'clock. At ten minutes before
that time President Mitchell came upon
the platform and was greeted with
cheers. Secretary Wilson, following
close after, shared the applause.Prompt
to the second, president Mitchell
brought down his gavel, saying: "The
hour of 10 o'clock having arrived, the
convention will be in order." Secre
tary Wilson then read the call for the
convention and President Mitchell call
ed for the report of the committee on
credentials. The reading of this by
Michael McTaggart of the committee
consumed much time, as the report
contained the name of every delegate,
with a statement of the number of
votes possessed by each man.
JJelegate Campbell, a colored man
from Kentucky, moved the acceptance
of the report and the continuation of
Ihe committee. This was done and the
convention adjourned until 1:30 p. m.
When the convention met In the aft
ernoon a motion was made and carried
that the convention go at once Into
executive session. John P. Reese of
Iowa moved a reconsideration of the
vote by which this action was taken.
He declared secret sessions undesir-
The speech of Mr. Reese In support
of his motion carried the day, the vote
was reconsidered and it was decided
that the meetings of the convention
would be open to the public.
STRIKE OUT OF THE QUESTION.
The" action of the caucuses makes a
geneTilstrike practically out of the
question, as the anthracite men can
not carry their point without the aid
of Illinois, and with - that state and
Iowa and Ohio against them there-is
no apparent manner In which a strike
can be ordered.
The meeting of the anthracite min
ers held after the adjournment of the
convention resulted In nothing but the
conclusion that there was no way In
which a strike could be forced and
that those members of the anthracite
districts who were anxious for a strike
would be disappointed. There was a
long conference and a vote was de
cided upon, but when it was partially
taken It was Been that the result
would be ro "strong In upholding the
recommendations of President Mitchell
that the vote was not- considered.

UNION PACIFIC WIS k NEW PUN.
New York. (Special ) The Union Pa
cific Railroad company announces a
plan for financing the balance of the
purchases of Northern and Southern
Pacific shares. A year and a half ago
the exnslve purchases of Northern
Pacific stoe k -were made in the Inter
est of. the Union Pacific company and
the shares acquired were vested In the
Oregon Short Line company. They
now consist of Northern Securities
stock, for which the Northern Pacific
shares have been exchanged.,-
Since that time the Union Pacific
company has also increased its hold
ings of Southern Pacific stock. The
Oregon Short Line Railway company
has created an issue of 4 per cent and
participating twenty-five year gold
bonds, which are to be secured by the
pledge and deposit with the Equitable
Trust company of New York, as trus
tee, of ten shares of Northern Securi
ties stoe-k for every 11,000 face value of
ton-Is Issued. The bonds carry 4 per
cent Interest, payable semi-annually,
and, beginning with the year 1903, are-
entitled to any cash dividends and In
terest which may be paid in cash dur
ing each year upon the" giving af least
three months' notice, the bonds-so re
deemed to be drawn by. lot.
The present Issue of these bonds will
be $31, WO and holders of the preferred
and common stock of the Union Pacino
Railway company, of record on Au
gust 1, have the privilege of subscrib
ing to those bonds at 90 and Interest
to Die extent of 50 per cent of the par
value of their stock. Arrangements
have been made for the sale of such
bonds as are not taken by the stock
holders. Subscriptions must be made
before the close of business AugUBt 15,
and accompariled by the payment of
$450 for each bond. The baiance flue
must be paid on or before September
15. Holders who desire- to anticipate-
the second payments .will be. allowed a-
discount of $1.66 per bond.
This transaction completes the. pur-
chase of Northern Pacific and Southern
Pacific stock without Increasing the
bonded obligations of the Union Pacific
company or Its capital account, and '
leaves the company In a position to re
tire obligations before maturity at a
slight premium. The rights to sub
scribe to the new bonds are estimated
to be worth a little over 1 per cent to
Union Pacific stockholders: This cal
