Thursday was an eventful day In the
progress of the strike. Beveral firms set
tled with strikers, teamsters and waiters,
and the outcome gave warrant for the be
lief that a disintegration of the discordant
elementa has at last set in. The strikers
came out of the day feeling much en
couraged. More settlements are antici
pated today and the end of the strike la
thought to be rot far distant.
A matter of considerable Import was
brought out at the injunction Inquiry yes
terday afternoon being conducted by J. O.

association. Yeiser aaked the question of
Euclid Martin, president of the Business
'It the unions concede all the cardinal
points of ths Business Men's association
would you then recognise them and sign
contracts with them- as unions or would
you Insist on dealing with, them us in

I weuld not sign any contracts with them
as unions, but would Insist on dealing with 1
them .aa Individuals," waa Mr. Martin's
reply. , a i
At this hearing E.' B. Branch, secretary
of the Business Men's association, refused
to produce the books of the association In
response to Mr. Yelser'S request. He gave
as his reason for not doing ao that the
books had been turned over to T. J.
Mahoney, attorney for the association, and
that Mahoney was in court and could not
be reached. Yeiser then moved that Branch
be committed for contempt in falling to
produce the books and C. C. Valentine, the
notary before whom the inquiry Is being
held, took the motion under advisement and
probably will act on It today.

matters with the Bennett. Company and

cable terms with the Sheridan Coal com

YOUNG ELEMENT IN CONTROL
On Handred and Fifteenth General
LOS ANGELES, Cal., May a.-Ths HBth
general assembly of the Presbyterian
church convened In this city this morn
ing at Immanuel church. But few of the
700 accredited commissioners were absent
from their seats when Rev. . Dr. Henry
Van Dyke called the gathering of church'
notables to order, and the spacious galleries
of the church were crowded by visiting and
local church people.
The campaign for moderator continued
up to the hour for calling the assembly to
order, and everything points to the election
of Rev. Dr. Robert F. Coyle, pastor of the
Central Presbyterian chufch of Denver, at
this afternoon's Session, by a large ma
jority over the other candidates. Dr. Coyle
Is very popular with the creed revision ele
ment of the general assembly, which is
Just now In a strong majority. Dr. Coyle
will be nominated by Dr. William N. Page
of Topeka, Kan., who waa himself men
tioned as a prominent candidate, for the
moderatorshlp until he withdrew from the
race in favor of Dr. Doyle.
Dr. William H. Roberts of Philadelphia
and Dr. Calvin W. Mater ot Chicago are
the other two candidates.
A notable feature of the present general
assembly Is the unusually large number
of young men among the commissioners.
Comparatively few of the older men, who
had heretofore shaped the policy of the
Presbyterian church, were In attendance,
This Is explained by the fact that the
campaign for commlaslonershlps to the
llEth general assembly, which will vote
upon the final adoption of creed revision,
was an exceptionally warm one, and the
younger element of the church won out.
The opening of the assembly this morning
resembled the usual church service. There
waa singing by the choir and by the audi
ence of many old familiar hymns. At 11
o'clock Dr.- Van Dyke called the assembly
to order and delivered his annua sermon
He summarised' the Importance of doc
trines and expressed these ethical teach
ings on which all Christian churches unite.
The church that the twentieth century
will heer moet gladly and honor most sin
cerely will have two marks. It will ba
the church that preaches the central truths
or cnrisuanity most cieariy, strongly and
