The Award Will Become Effective
May Tenth and Binding For
One Year Only.
Chicago.—An arbitration award ad
vancing to some extent the rates of
pay of 64,000 locomotive engineers,
firemen and hostlers employed on the
140,000 miles of line of ninety-eight
western railroads in the great area of
the United States and Canada, bound
ed on the east by the Illinois Central
and the Great Lakes, has been signed.
The wage award is believed by the
men to fall short of their demands.
By reason of the many rules of opera
tion involved no railroad will be able
to tell exactly for a month at least
the amount of mony involved. The
surprise test remains.
The award includes several re
forms affecting hours and conditions
of employment. Representatives of
the brotherhoods expressed disap
pointment at it, while the railroads in
a general way considered it satisfac
tory. The arbitration was strictly on
the demands of the men; there was
nothing for them to lose of ad
vantages already enjoyed.
A dissenting opinion was filed on
behalf of the Brotherhoods of Engine
men, in which the arbitration was
branded as a failure and the New
lands’ lawr, under which it was ar
ranged an inadequate device for the
settlement of industrial disputes.
The award effective May 10 and
binding for one year only, was frank
ly declared as merely postponing for
a twelve month the actual settlement
of the differences involved. The rail
road members of the board issued a
formal statement criticising features
of the regulations governing the ar
bitration, and remarking that certain
concessions, regarded as intrinsically
unjust, were made for the sake of
preserving peare with the employes.
Judge Peter C. Pritchard of Rich
mond, Va., chairman of the board,
explained his position and stated that
while in his opinion the men in cer
tain branches of the service were
entitled to greater advances than
were granted, he had to make conces
sions in order that an award might
be made, and he found much of a
hopeful nature in the award.
400 of 1,600 Sheep Found Alive.
San Francisco, Cal.—A herder in
Morrow county, Oregon, found 400 of
his newly shorn flock of sixteen hun
dred alive, after the pitiless storm
of wind, snow, sleet and hail which
for two days swept that portion of the
United States lying west of the
Rocky mountains. At Monterey, Cal.,
warehouses were blown into the bay,
merchandise and all. In southern
California icicles hung from apple
trees. The first snow within man’s
recollection fell in the Salt river val
ley in Arizona, and across the Ne
vada desert the wind attained the
proportions of a hurricane.
1,200 Ironworkers Strike.
Chicago. 111. — Twelve hundred
bridge and structural iron workers
struck when their demands for in
crease in wages wras refused by the
contractors’ association. The men
also demanded that they be given the
reinforced concrete work for which
laborers now receive 40 cents an
hour. Work on many municipal pro
jects will be held up besides the de
lay to private buildings now under
Half of Colon Burned.
Colon.—More than half the city of

astrous fire.

12,000 others, mostly negroes, have
been rendered homeless.
The loss is estimated at about
