03IAHA. The Union Pacific ma
chinists, after being on strike for over
eleven months, on Wednesday reach
ed an agreement with the company,
the enscsMal points of which are
thoe stated above. The boiler mak
ers having previously adjusted mat-
tera with President Burt and Presi
dent Harriman in New York, only the
blacksmiths now remain without the
fold and they began negotiations for
peace with President Burt immedi
ately upon the conclusion ot the ma
chinists' affairs. They will continue
their conferences until an. end Is
.reached. Every indication, points to
a settlement with them
The anal settlement of the ma
chinists was effected and ratified
Tuesday afternoon. For three days
the five members of the machinists'
international executive board had
been in conference with President
Burt and Superintendent McKeen at
headquarters here. The local and dis
trict committees took no active part
in the deliberations until the terms of
the agreement had been reached and
then the local and district men were
invited to participate in the ratifica
- tion. This procedure was mutually
agreed on at the outset. From the
first of this " conference the utmost
secrecy as to the deliberations has
been observed. The only statement
made came at the conclusion of the
Hugh Doran. chairman of the ma
chinists' executive board, officially an
nounced for the workmen that the
strike had been settled along the
lines indicated above and thai the
terms were entirely satisfactory to
the men.
Late in the day this statement was
made officially at Union Pacific head
quarters, as comprising the cardinal
features of the settlement:
L The settlement was made on the
same basis substantially as that of
the. boiler makers, which, was in ac
cordance with the recent telegram of
3lr. Harriman to Mr McNeiL

men are siven to return to work.
The machinists say their wage
schedule has been raised on a grad-
-uated scale, averagmg about T per
cent. The question of what to do
with the non-union men who took
strikers' places and those who were
employed m the shops when the strike
began and remained there was not
dealt with in the terms of peace, but
was left to adjust itself.

WASHINGTON President Roose

o'clock. Friday night from his memor
able trip of aver two months throagh
aat the west. He was given a hearty
reception by the people of the capi
tal, who lined the sidewalks as bis
carriage, escorted by the battalion of
high school cadets, was driven to the
White House. The president cordially
responded to the greetings given, kirn
aad repeatedly- stood sp in Ms.og

acknowledgments. He looked toe

There was a large gathering of offi
cials at the railroad station when the
president arrived. They included
Secretary Root. Secretary Hitchcoclr
and Secretary Cortelyou and Postmas
ter General Payne. Drawn up in line
were Commander-in-Chief Kimball of
the Department of the Potomac of the
Grand Army of the Republic and a de
tachment of Spanish war veterans un
der command of Colonel Hodgson.
The president spent a very few min

assembled officials. He talked long

and apparently whispering to him.

high school cadets along Pennsylvania
avenue to the White House grounds.
At the entrance to the grounds the
cadets halted and the president and
his party passed them in review. The
avenue was lined with people and the
applause which the president received
on every hand was outspoken and cor
dial. The fire engines of the city were
stationed at the intersecting streets an
the avenue and the tolling of the bells
added to the welcome of the presi
dent. While the review of the cadets was
taking place a large crowd of people
repaired to the rearaf the White
House, where the Marine band gave
a concert in honor of the arrival home;
of the chief executive. The people ex
pected that the president would ap
pear for a moment to acknowledge
ue greeting home that would be giv
en him, and in this they were not dis
appointed. The band played the "Star
Spangled Banner." aad then, as the
president appeared on the portico,
struck up "Hail to the Chief." The
president made a brief speech.
