STATE LABOR ARBITRATION ,
Ezteut of Legal Machinery Created to Set

JUi..1 : Tliu labor awltation of recent years
) ms hud n much larger lulluutico on the slmp-
ln of laws than In Ecncially thought
especially In the direction ot providing
machinery for mbltratlon. Six states within
four years ha\o established tribunals to con
duct arbitration. Most of these havu been
created wltnln two yrais , and two status ,
within the latter ucriod , have established
fitatn boards with salaried members and Im
portant powers. 1'lm rnpld extension of this
fonn of Industrial regulation and the decided
tendency It Is already manlfestlai ; to become
nil actual Inturforenco with thu employer's
management of his own business , Is likely to
Itrovo the most radical departure yet inado
from the time-honored policy of religiously
maintaining the separation of state and In
dustry. If the present tendency to regulate the
economic nativities by government becomes
nu accepted policy , It will be because , with
natural resources appropriated and a great
working population depending wholly on
wages , Industrial conditions have them-
Euhcu umlcrgonu a radical change. The
only question thu average voter will ask
about stiito arbltiatlon ami the amount and
kind of power the board of aibltratton should
exercise will be the purely practical question
now nor.s ITOUK' . '
The tribunals so far cioated are of three
tyucs and of various decrees of authority ,
The simplest typu Is n local boaid brought
tnto existence- an ofllcial way for a specific ,
temporary occasion , with which It expires.
The local boaid provided for by the Now
Jersey law of IbV ) Is the best example of this
type. It Is constituted by the agreement of
an employer and his own employes , each
party selecting ono arbitrator and these twoa
third , It arbitrates the single case for
which It was formed and then expires unless
it is selected to hear some other dispute also.
Its decision Is final on the questions sub
mitted and binding. Another type Is the
local board created for a certain period and
nulhorl/.cd to hear any case properly brought
"before It within that time. The Ohio law of
IbWi provides for tribunals of tills kind , each
contlnnini ; In existence one year from the
date of the license creating It and being em-
iioworcd to take jurisdiction of any dispute
between employers or workmen within that
time , whether brought buforo It by the
parties that orluinally petitioned for the
tribunal , or by others , or even by parties
from another counttv wherono such tribunal
exists. Thu third typu is the purmanent state
board , composed of salaried members ap
pointed tor delinlto terms and empoweied to
liear cases anywhere within the common-
werxltli. Such boards were created in New
York and Massachusetts in IbhS. Local
boards also are provided for in these states.
In I'ennsyUanln , Kansas. Nuw York and
Massachusetts the local tribunals approach
either thu Now Jei uy or the Ohio typu , with
homo distinctive features in each state. In
Massachusetts , ns In New Jersey , the local
board Is constituted by the inert ) atnuemunt
ot the patties Intutested. In the other status
named It derives Its autlioiity from a county
or other loial court. The 1'unnsylvanla
boards are lormed , according to the Wallace
net of 183 : ' . . under licenses insulin : from courts
ol common pleas upon the petition of Inn
employers and llftv woikmen. The pro
cedure is similar in Kansas and Ohio , but in
Now York the board is formed llrst and then
guts its license liom tlio judge of thu county
court. The composition ot the board is in all
rases presetibedbv law. In Pennsylvania ,
Ohio and Kansas there must bo on equal rep
resentation ot employers and workmen , tlio
names of the perssons selected bmng given
in the Detltion to the court.
If there Is a disagreement the
case goes to an umpire the law wlsclv pro
viding that the umplio shall DO named Doi'oru
itho arbitration beirins. In Massachusetts as
In Now Jersey each party selects an arbitra
tor and those two a third. New York recog
nizes the labor organizations. The local
board consists of ( INo peisons. When the
.employes represented are members in good
iPtandlug of an organisation that is repro-
eonti'dby delegates in a central body ( Ilko
the Cential Labor union of New York city )
that body names two arbitrators. If tlio em
ployes belonir to no organbatlon they ciiooso
their two arbitiators tliumselves by a major
ity vote. Two aroltrators are named by tlio
employer or employes and the four so se
lected choose the tilth. Tiicre Is a close rela
tion between the degrees of
I'KKMANANCY TllhSK TnillU.VAl.,8
nro expected to enjoy and tlio magnitude of
the cases presumed to come boforj them. In
Massachusetts , tor example , whern a single
employer of as many ns twenty-five men may
join with them in creating a legal tilbunal
tlio tribunal ceases to exist when It renders
Its decision. In Pennsylvania , on the other
hand , the expectation of the framcrs of the
law evidently was that the tribunal would
be created only to deal with disputes Involv
ing largo Interests , since Uvo employers and
fifty workmen must join In the petition to
the court and when tlio tribunal Is created It
may continue to arbitratu for the same par
ties Indefinitely. In Ohio the petition must
bo signed by forty workmen and four em
ployers , or by four employers employing not
less than ten men each , or by one employer
of at least forty men and the tribunal , as we
nave seen , exists for a year.
None of tlieso boards Jiavo any power tenet
net until a case Is voluntarily submitted , with
ppccltlcatlons In wrltlnir , by the parties to the
dispute. Then the pioccednro Is with legal
formality ; subpronas may bo Issued , wit
nesses examined and books demanded. The
dlcislon Is tlnal and binning In Nuw Jersey ,
Ohio and Kansas. In Ohio the decision of
an umplro Is uiado a matter of record In the
county court whence Judgement and process
may Issue to eniorru It. In Massachusetts
B decision has whatever binding effect has
been agreed on before hand. A Pennsylva
nia umpire' * decision is binding In all mat
ters but tiituru wages , that becomes binding
It thn decision Is accepted by both parties
nud may then bo on fenced by the couits. In
Nuw York an appeal lies from the local to
Jho state board.
WHAT HAS 11KKN ACCOMPLlSIIItn
by.all this elaborate leiral machinery ? As yet
not a great deal except in Pennsylvania

liavo resulted so well that possibly there will
yet bu a ie oit to the countv tribunals in
Ohio. The existence of statu boards In Now
York nud Massachusetts with power to hold
hearings In any ton , account for thu failure
to resoit to loeal tribunals In these states.

It Is tlio state boards Ithat'promised too

to nbrldso the absolute freedom employers
nave enjoyed to bo a law nnto themselves In

are to comu about , apparently , In a dirfcrunt
way from what thu promoters of arbitration
looked for. It will bu less by nctual arbitra
tion In iespouse to petition than by proffered
mediation , a word of advice In time and the
appeal to public opinion throimh an exposure
of the facts , that Industrial peace , ou a lush

of S3.000 a year each and a clerk receives
S.,000. The three members of the Massa
chusetts board had List year 35 for each day
of actual service. They now receive $3,000 a
year each , and the term of each Is three
years. In New York the two political p r-
Tes casting the largest number of votes and
bona lido labor organization must be repre
sented In the board. In Massachusetts one
member represents employers , mother rep
resents tlio labor organizations and these two
nominate the third. The successful arbitra
tions effected In either state , so far , have
been by a small proportion or the possible
, but they na\o undoubtedly saved
than the cost of maintaining the bonids
nnd the very careful judicial decisions of the
Massachusetts board forni ) already a body of
exact Information and Important precedent
In resrard to tlin relation of employers and
employes , and the conditions affecting
proilts and rules of wages , ot the highest
'lint It Is In the power of the Massachusetts
board to Investigate , take testimony and
jnako a public reitort Independently of the
wishes of the cmplojer , that constitutes the
most radical feature of tatu notion In labor
troubles yet inttoduced in this country ,
and the fact that this power
was largely Increased this year , alter
the llrst annual report ot the board had been
made to the legislature Is slgnliicant of tlio
drift of public opinion. As thn law now
stands It Is the duty of a elty or the select
men 6f a town to notify thu board whenever
n striKu or lockout involving as
many as tweiity-fivo employes of
ono employer , engaged in the
same line ot woik , is seriously threatened or
has begun. It then bocatno the duty ot the
board to oiler its conciliatory services and
try to effect a settlement. lithe effort falls
the board may , at Its discretion , make an in
vestigation and publish a report fixing re
sponsibility and blame.
The theory here , It will bo seen , Is the same
that has worked so well in the regulation of
railroad traffic in Massachusetts , that an ap
peal to public opinion Is tlio most effective
form of public control of business relations.

DAVIS AS1) THK FLAGS.
Another Letter lly tlio Arch Traitor
On the Incident.
UAI.TIMORH , Juno 30. The Sun has a long
letter from Jeff Davis , In reference to the re
turn of the southern battle flags. lie thinks
ita object now would bo to unite the people
of the north and south. Every sign of tlio
past conflict should as far as practicable be
obliterated. To retain as a point of pride
thu captured flags would bo equivalent to re
newed exultation. "Our men. " says he ,
"fought for a pilnclple , and that they have
not surrendered , but rather hoplessly
lived to sea the good PI-HSU of
northern men revert to the teach
ings of their sirus , and reestablish
thu government according to the constitution
on which it was Intituled. That is thu only
victory which would bo to them and their
cliildien , a tiling to be prized and gloilfied. "
Onu element of value in the proposition to
return to both north and south thu thus now
in the war department , Davis says , is that
tlio icstor.itlen would be a declatatlou such
as thu old liomaus made , that thuiu should
bo no triumph for victory won In civil
war. Ho thinks the excitement over the
matter very much like a tempest In a teapot.

LAJJOU OIIG.VMKA110N ,
IloprcscntntlvoH From tlio Different
A joint mooting of representatives frotli
till laabor organizations was held last
nlpht at McU's hull for llio imrrposo of
discussing the present labor situation of
the city. Owing to the inclemency of
tlio weather , however , there was not so
full anil representative n mooting as an
ticipated. Mr , \ \ itllniii Druln was called
to the chair nnd having explained the
objects for which the meeting hntl been
called together invited a discussion.
\V. \ J. Hunt , of the painters' union , was
sorry the mooting was not stronger nnd
tnoro representative. The situation in
Oin.ilm appeared to him to bo that if tlio
laboring men did not get to work and
orgaui/u and assort their riirhts
us men , thuy must go to the
wall. It was necessary now
more than ever for the men to insist
upon receiving a fair compensation for
their labor , and to obtain this the difTer-
cut unions must work together. If they
did not look out for themselves thu cap
italists with tliuir tun , fifty and one hun
dred thousand dollars would never make
nny move in their favor.
The chairman said that in all Ills ex
perience ho hail never known a city
whcro organi/.ed labor was in such au
unsatisfactory state. There were several
labor organisations in Omaha , and these ,
instead of working together for the com
mon good of all , did all in their power
to crush and annihilate each other. The
time had come when tlio Knichts of
Labor , tlio Central Labor union anil the
ether trades organizations .should go
hand in hand. The uity at the piescnt
time was overrun by scab painters , and
this was a state of alVairs that would not
bo alloweed in any other city whore or
ganized labor existed. Scabs were paid
a premium to stay in Omaha. [ A voice ,
"That's abotittlie sizeof it. " ] In Chicago
a union painter would not work with a
scab painter , and vice versa. The
card system should be put in
force to a greater extent. Unless
something was done to stir the men up to
action , organized labor would go down in
Omaha There was no salvation for the
unions -niles.i they formed into one solid ,
compact body. An association had been
formed lately in the city for the purpose
of downing the painters , but they hail
not done it yet and they never would.
[ Applause. ]
A number of other speakers addressed
the meeting and expressed themselves in
favor of better organization , lieforc tlio
close of the meeting Mr.V. . ( J. Holder ,
who is engaged adjusting the painters'
strike on behalf of the Knights of Labor ,
stated that certain things had transpired
lately for which ho was able to say that
in all probability the painters' differences
would be settled satislactory to the men
before the end of the week.

PULLMAN'S PUNCHMIXER. .
An Incident at the Grand Pacific
"A. B.'s" Cold Uccoiitlon.
Chicago Herald : A familiar character -
actor in front of the counter
iu the office of the Grand Pacilic
is A. H. Pullman , a big brother of the
'sleeping car magnate. His portly form
gives him the appearance of pompous
dignity itself and many an awe-struck
granger has the rotund form pointed out
to him as the man whoso ingenuity is
said to have devised the lirst dormitory
on wheels. But even with the mosl ex
cellent and digninbirof ( , men there come
moments when dignity is impossible. So
it was a few evenings since with Pull
man. In hot weatHer nearly every one
has a favorite beverage , aud Pullman is
no exception to the 'rule. If A. 15. has a
fondness for one decoction more than
another , glib talkers say , it is for milk
punch , and when ii can induce a friend
to declare in favor of the same beverage
lie is delighted beyond expression. Not
loiisi since he invitiid a friend to stop up
to the highly polished' ' Grand Pacilic rose
wood over which several white-aproned
attendants preside , and ordered for two.
"Milk punches for two ! " sang out the
magnate's brother , aud an attendant
hastened to prepare the drink. When it
was ready Pullman throw down a quar
ter in piiynipnt
"Twenty-live cents more , " mildly sug
gested the attendant , whoso smooth ,
clerical face fairly beamed with aflibility.
"It's a quarter a drink. "
"Not much , " responded Pullman ; "it's
two for a quarter. I know this house. "
"That's all right , but 1 can't go back
of the price list. "
"Can't liclp that ; two punches CO
Reluctantly Pullman paid the price , it
is said , and went straight to Innkeeper
John Drake , who consoled him and
soothed him aud rubbed thu milled fur
the right way. The fact that the report
had been made to Mr. Drake reached the
bartender's Ho incensed
ears. was greatly
censed , and for a day or two his pom
padour stood up like quills on tlio back
of a fretful porcupine. lor a time , it is
said , Pullman made himself scarce , and
did not show up again till Saturday ,
when lie once more confronted his friend ,
"iou'ro a nice man. 'Uhat did you
want to report mo to Drake for ? I've a
mind to smash you ! " shouted the man in
the apron , becoming red in the face and
at the same time making a threatening
"Say nothing to me , sir , " replied the
heavy man ; "I do not wish you to spenK
to mo. I have nothing to do with you.
I won't let you wait on mo. Go away
and let Jimmy come up hero to make my
punch. 1 don't quarrel with your kind.
I can have you d chargcd if I want to. "
While this speech was being formu
lated and delivered , the tall slender man
behind the bar ngainst whom the re
marks wore directed , permitted the fiery
color of his cheek to deepen and his
anger to got the best of him. Stooping
down ho picked up from heliind the bar a
heavy piece of ice and with all his farro
hurled it at the bead of Pullman. It
struck the shoulders of the big man , for
tunately not hurting him , but frightening

Cincinnati Kurjuircn A funeral cor
tege wended slowly .iiilong yesterday af-
tornoou from No. U84 ( Vmtral avenue to
Spring Grove cemotorv. To the casual
observer it didn't difurf ( from other grim
funeral processions tjiat daily went their
way through the street bearing dust to
dust. To these acquainted wild the cir
cumstances it was weird , bad and singu
lar. It was a fiinW.U , every detail ot
which had been arranged beforehand by
tlio deceased. ,
The deceased was Henry Krcsz , the
proprietor of n largo 'restaurant and sa
loon , at Nos. ( > 81 atuKDW Central avenue.
For the past four mojiths Krcs/ , who was
a man fitty-sevunycarsoldaiul the father
of grown children , had been ailing and
complaining , but was still able to attend
to his daily business From the symp
toms of his complaint the doctors ding-
nosed liver complaint , presumbly a tu
mor on the liver. The trouble grow
more and more aggravated , until some
days ago tlio attending physicians de
cided nn operation to bo the ono last ev-
pedlont left to medical science. Tlio
patient , cuccr to live , grasped at this one
chance as the fabled drowninc man at , n
straw. Thursday last was the day ap
pointed for the operation. As the day
that was to decide life or death for him
approached the patient 'began to make
the most complete nnd systematic nr-
rangumonts to incut the worst , should it
come , The coolness and courage that
the man displayed were most remarka
ble. ' He settled all his worldly allair.s and
made his will.
He zaye minute , directions i > 5 . to the
i . ' .
style of cotlin , should the operation brine
death , and not recovery , in which he waste
to bo laid. Ho ordered that Ids grave
should bo cemented. Ho selected Philip
Meydor to olllelato at thu organ at his
obsequies , aud directed that tl o funeral
services should bo ti31d in the hall above
his place of buslno s. T'he&o and all
other liual details attended to , ho stepped
UP to his bar Thursday morning the
morning of the day appointed for the
operation , winch meant to him time or
eternity , this world or the next and In-
vitcd all present to have something with
lilm , saying. "Boy.s , have a drink with
mo : it may be tlio last one. " . The part
ing bumper was drank in the silence of
sad hearts , for Kros/ was popular among
his acquaintances , aud well liked aud us-
steomed by all who know him. Ho then ,
before tlio arrival of the surgeons , wont
so far as lo prepare tlio operat'ng ' table
ou which ho was to be laid , The opera
tion was to bo performed at 10 o'clock
Thursday morning , Drs. Conner ,
Mitchell nud Carson olliciating.
The surgeon found that tlio diagnosis
of the case had been a correct one. Tlio
patient was suiTorliig from tumor on the
liver. The operation further revealed
that to attempt to remove the tumor
would certainly prove fatal , while to al
low it lo remain undisturbed would ns
certainly produce deatli within ton dajs ,
at the very outside. They , of cour.vo ,
choose tlio latter alternative. The keen
knives were sheathed , the cases of surgi
cal instruments closed and thu patient
left to the inevitable. He lingered , con
scious and clear of intellect , through
Thursday nud Thursday night up to 11
o'clock Friday morning , when lie ex
pired. Tlio burial yesterday was just as
the deceased had directed it. Kn-s/
