fctaad Oat for Detalla. j
Th strikers started the day by refusing j
to ratify the terma agreed upcJ by their
committee and President Forget of the
railway company late last night.
President Forget met a committee of the
strikers last night at the request of Mayor
Cochran. After some dlacussion President
Forget announced that tbe company waa
ready to grant the men an advance of 10
per rent, recognize the union and reinstate
the men recently discharged unless their
dismissal had been tor Just f'ausf .
Tbe committee seemed well satisfied with
the terma and It was generally believed
that tbe end of tbe strike waa In slubt. A
meeting of tbe employes wss called at 10:30
a. m. to ratify the terns of settlement.
It soon became apparent that a majority
of the men would be satufied with nothing
short of a complete capitulation on tbe part
of tbe railway company. Speeches were
made urging the men to refuae ibe terma
unleas tbry Included certain articles of the
men's demands, which required ax. lncreaae
in the working force of the company and
provided that no ituf pensions, whateter,
were to be made permanent.
Conservative leaders among the men
ured tb strikers to accept tbe conces
sions, but they were cried down and when
a vote was taken tbe proposed baais ol
aettlement wa defeated.

This portion of the stste Is quite aroused
over the order from the Department of Ag
riculture relative to the new horse dic
esse, as It directly sCects Fall River and
Cuaier county, besides the Indian reserva

an examination. The disease Is known as
maladie durhoit, an Infectious venereal dis
ease brought to this country from France a j
number of years ago. It is said to be g
very bard diseaae to eradicate one it geU
foothold, and tbe manner In which horses
run at large upon tbe range ha permitted
It to spread to quite an extenaive area,
although not a large proportion of the
horse have become infected. Tbe govern
ment has ordered that no horse shall be
oCered for shipment or be transported or
driven or trailed or otherwise removed
from any of the Infected sections unless
